It feels like this month has been on fast-forward. Are you like me and would occasionally like to be able to rewind? Except for the past two days, which I'll explain in a few, I could redo this entire month. I remember having a birthday and a few other days of note, but the entire month has just rushed by. But then, don't they all?
My sweet little Callie hasn't returned home yet. I'm still watching for her and praying she finds her way back. It's been over a week now. We do have a lot of predators in our neighborhood and raccoons that are not cat-friendly, so I'm worried I might not see her again. I did put out her litter box and a pillow that she liked to sleep on and hoped the scent would lure her back. The day that I opened the door and she slipped out is a day that I'd like to do over again.
My daughter took me out to a Mexican eatery one evening recently. We both had the El Toriado, not sure that's spelled correctly. This is our new favorite dish. Shrimp, beef, chicken, and bacon over a bed of rice with queso...it was oh, so good!
I longed for a meal like this or even just a plain bologna (yuck) sandwich Monday evening. Yesterday, I was having fun at the Big Town having a colonoscopy. Which means I was having even more fun Monday drinking a gallon of the tasty (ugh!) mixture that...well, you know what it does. I have to say, pun intended, that I'm glad to have all that behind me!
The doctor found 3 polyps and thinks they are okay, but I'll know for sure by the end of the week. I had a polyp removed 10 years ago and was supposed to go back in 5 years. I have to admit being a chicken about doing this procedure even though I wasn't aware of a thing he did. Anyway, I won't wait that long again and encourage everyone to not be like me.
Other than having to drink the nasty stuff and running to the bathroom all the time, the procedure itself isn't really that bad. My favorite part of the day, other than hearing that everything looked pretty good, was going with BG to the Golden Corral where I shamelessly pigged out. ☺
This photo is from last year. Our skies haven't been that pretty lately. It's been gray and rainy, but I'm not complaining. We've needed the rain. The redbuds have started blooming and I'm going to have to take a few day trips and admire the scenery. Yes. Have to. Next to fall, spring is my favorite time of year when the redbuds are in bloom.
And if you are thinking...ha, she'll do anything to keep from having to purge/declutter, that is true! But isn't spring blooming all around us a good excuse to get out and about and enjoy this special time of year? I think so.
For my blogging friends who live where spring hasn't yet made an appearance, I will close with a favorite quote:
"No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn."
Happy Wednesday to you!
