oi I need a bubble

2 Comments

So on Tuesday, over halfway to my doctor’s appt, and called them to let them know I might be running a titch late, and they tell me that it was cancelled, and that I’m being rescheduled. oi okay… so I turn around, and get back to Muncie- had to go to the clinic and do my lab work there. Lil vampires needed my blood, and I wasn’t going to keep driving all the way into downtown Indy and deal with the wacky traffic.

Anywho got my labs done, and went to go take care of some other stuff while in Muncie. And I fell. Bad! Landed right on my bad knee-natch! And OW!

so I completed my errands as quickly as possible, and even managed to get my hair cut. I think I fell after that… can’t remember.

anywho by the time I got home my knee was really swollen bad. So I elevated it and started icing it down… yeah didn’t work to well. By the time hubs came home, he had to cut off my pants it had swollen that much, it kinda looked like a swollen grapefruit.

And then I had yesterday off to keep it elevated and immobilized. Which actually helped a lot, it’s down to semi-normal size, and I’m really relying on my cane this morning. I didn’t want to use my crutches. They hurt after a bit-anyone that’s ever used them, knows what I mean.

So yeah, at work, really early – and I’m sitting here doing this entry and then watching my movie again. I still have two hours till I’m officially on the clock.

be careful, it’s slick out there!

and now for some humor thanks to my friend, Skeen!!

Look for an Evergreen Day
December 19, 2013 in the World

Look for an Evergreen Day is today. To many people, only a fresh cut real tree will do for Christmas. The scent of fresh pine helps to capture the feel of the holidays. Nothing looks more real than a real tree, each one with it’s own character and appearance.

There is no shortage of types of Christmas trees. Generally classified as firs, spruces, and pines, the most popular varieties have changed over the years. Personal preference will determine whether you select a short needle, or long needled tree.

If you haven’t selected a tree yet, it is certainly getting late. By the 19th of December, most people have found and put up their Christmas tree. So if you are still treeless, this special day could be the day to do so.

How to select and care for the perfect Christmas Tree:

Oatmeal Muffin Day
December 19, 2013 in the World

Oatmeal Muffin Day is celebrated on December 19th of each year.

Oatmeal muffins are made with the primary ingredient of oatmeal. Additional ingredients can just about anything, however the most common are raisins, nuts, and chocolate chips depending on your preference. The level of sweetness can also vary greatly.

Oat groats are coarsely ground to make oatmeal, or cut into small pieces to make steel-cut oats, or first steamed and then flattened to make rolled oats. Quick-cooking rolled oats (quick oats) are cut into small pieces before being steamed and rolled. Instant oatmeal is pre-cooked and dried, usually with sweetener and flavoring added. Both types of rolled oats may be eaten uncooked as in Muesli or may be cooked to make porridge. It is also used as an ingredient in oatmeal muffins, oatmeal cookies and oat cakes, or as an accent, as in the topping on many oat bran breads and the coating on Caboc cheese. Oatmeal is also sometimes porridge with the bran or fibrous husk as well as the oat kernel or groat. In some countries rolled oats are eaten raw with milk and sugar or raisins. Oatmeal is also used as a thickening agent in savory Arabic/Egyptian thick meat plus vegetable soups.

When using oatmeal in a recipe, read the label carefully! Not all oatmeal is the same: Rolled, quick, instant and steel-cut oats vary in texture and required cook time.
