The weather...we had close to 4 inches of snow by Monday morning. Nothing like what has fallen on the northeast. I honestly don't know how they are coping with those amounts. I feel sorry for the farm animals and wildlife trying to survive in those conditions, too.
The weekend...we were talking to our son on Saturday and he asked us if we wanted to come for a visit and to eat some of that excellent Kansas City BBQ. Well, we thought about that for a couple of minutes and decided to throw a few things in a bag for an overnight and off we went. He bought us a yummy dinner for Valentine's Day and then we ate the BBQ the next day before leaving for home. We visited him in KC last month and we ate at Gate's BBQ and I've been in love ever since! My meal came on a plate, but BG's and son's were in a box pictured above. We had a great time in spite of my hobbling around.
Call me a wussy... for I've been grunting and groaning for too long. In addition to having had tendonitis in my left ankle, which is much better now, and a sore knee which is somewhat better, I had to have some surgery on my big toe Friday afternoon. And a little work was done on the next toe. Both were taped together, but I pulled a sock on and slipped on some sandals and hobbled on along! If you see any dirt on my foot, I'm here to tell ya that they were super clean before all this work was done, but I was not to get it wet for 3 days which will be up tomorrow. The pain has been bad enough that I make sure I'm taking my Advil every 4 hours. The doc gave me a prescription for a strong pain pill, but I don't like to take narcotics. The weekend trip was good to take my mind off of it. Monday was a lazy day and with the snow, I didn't think I'd better go out walking in sandals. So I stayed in and napped a lot and it was so nice!
It's a very late entry, but I'm linking to Amy's Barn Collective
Happy Tuesday to you!
