Would one of you kind Moderators please sticky This? Coughing is some improved but Grandfatherbear thinks I may have a fever since I've been so chilled the last 2 days- to the extent of buttoning up the house and turning on the heat- when I am the original "fresh air kid"- the colder, the better. The sciatica has NOT improved and I called it quits today after finally finishing transplanting the oregano, broccoli, and cauliflowers. Still a lot of weeding waiting, but it can wait a little longer. Have also been deeply, deeply fatigued. There has been a ghost cat stropping my legs today- my feet and legs are mostly numb these days, probably from spinal pressure- I look all about when I feel the strop and there is never a cat in sight. I think it's Spook, who chose me back when I was living over here at the lake-and who disappeared the same day GFB took me to the ER at 4 a.m. for chest pains (caused by coughing, I explained to the doctor). GFB confessed that he has been stropped by the phantom cat also. I trust it is Spook, trying to comfort us. Got one course completed for 2 continuing education credits, also have a 10 hr COPD course and a 15 hour breast cancer course- got them back in September, have just been too busy to work on them till now. Harvested sugar snap and snow peas, broccoli, snap beans, loofa squash, yellow pear cherry tomatoes, turnips, beets and red romain lettuce. Will pick pigeon peas prior to leaving for the city tomorrow. Going to go climb under an electric blanket (GFB, who feels the cold much more intensely than I usually do, has been sleeping ATOP the blanket for the last 2 nights.) This will be a short month, and at the end of it, only 3 weeks to SPRING, which I know y'all Northerners are looking forward to, but personally, I am dreading... Still trying to figure out what to do/where to go during the hottest couple weeks of the south Florida summer.
