Sunday dinner

It was a quiet evening.  The three youngest grands were not here.  Their mom and her mom went to Lafayette for Mardi Gras.  They originally were going to be back, but ...  Anyway, it was probably a good thing since Katie is still recovering from her concussion.  She is still having some headaches, but all in all getting better.  She went to the ODP practice because her coach wanted her to be there for at least some of the instruction even though she wouldn't be in the pool.

Valentine's night, Steve served a great meal of sea scallops, shrimp, lobster and risotto.  Quite tasty, but bless his heart - he has a problem with timing.  He isn't sure how to fire things so that they are all served hot.  The sea foods were all cold, but when it comes to those things - cold is so much better than none.

My heart goes out to those of you who are experiencing the brutal weather.  We are headed down to freezing tonight which isn't really a big deal, EXCEPT things are budding out.  In the Hill Country, the wineries are worried about frost tonight.  That will certainly be horrible for the grapes.  The peach people don't seem to be especially worried.  Not sure the trees have budded.

I am not as conscientious about my PT here at home as I should be.  I know it's an excuse, but I just don't take the time to do the exercises.  It takes about 15 minutes - which is nothing, but there is so much I would rather be doing than those exercises.  But they are helping.  It may hurt while  I am doing them, but I can stand longer and walk a little further.  Gotta do them!

It's off to Costco in a while.  Into the rain and cold.  I know - I don't need sympathy.  It's not ice and snow!!

I would gladly drive to PT every other day, but do the exercises at home? I was so uninspired!

It is so much harder to do the exercises at home, partly I think because there is no one around also doing their exercises. What does the dr say about Katie's continuing headaches?

Oh goodness, I see I have some catching up to do. Poor you, and Katie. Goodness! Just can't leave you alone for a day or two. xoxo

Concussion is good to be aware of. Poor kiddie. Time for some exercise for me, too!
