Hope you’re having a fabulous day on this fine Wednesday. It’s been so overcast in Nebraska it almost seems like the dark days of November.
It’s kind of ironic, we’re watching an old episode of COPS on Reelz. This was from the Y2K, before 9/11 occurred, and when people were still somewhat respectful of law enforcement. It seems longer and further away than 23 years.
The Babe had his first cataract surgery done yesterday. It is followed by the second surgery today. It is an amazing procedure. The surgeon is young and top shelf. You want a young doctor and an old lawyer. Makes all the difference in the world.
I hope after the Babe’s surgery today I have time to quilt a little. I have some appointments for Mom on Thursday and next Wednesday, along with a haircut next Tuesday. Another busy week when this one is only half over! I need to be twins; I think. It’s difficult to do any of my creative endeavors with all these life things. There may be a lot of changes made to our business plan for 2023. More on that later.
What is your favorite middle of the week dinner? We had crack crock-pot chicken about a month ago, and now, I’m thinking of making it again later this week. My mouth is watering just thinking of it. You take about four chicken breasts, put two 8 ounce bricks of creamed cheese on top, and sprinkle Ranch dressing mix over it all. Cook for 6 – 8 hours on low. Sprinkle with shredded cheese when finished. It is heavenly.
The book I’m reading, “Broken Angels,” by Gemma Liverio, is an amazing story. I haven’t read if it’s based on a true story, but it could be. The stories of the children, stolen from their families by Nazi soldiers and sent to camps for brainwashing using Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” are many. I’m sure that is true. Those poor children. Just as my heart breaks for the women and children in the Ukraine. War is hardest on them. When the war is over, they all have PTSD, and the soldiers experience it right along with them. So very sad. War, as they say, is hell.
The book is quite long, 458 pages. It’s the longest I’ve read. If I were smarter about it, I’d read 250 page books during the challenge. I had three books picked out to read during March, but I’m still on this long one. It was time well spent.
Well, I need to tend to the Babe today. He deserves it, but don’t tell him I said so. I’ll be able to see those mesmerizing Paul Newman blue eyes just like when we met, 27 years ago. He didn’t wear glasses then, and man, he had a gaze that was arresting. Lucky me.
Hope you’re having a good Hump Day, and you have some time with special people this week. See you tomorrow.
