It doesn't hurt to wish!!!
I did come home cold. I stood in the rain for 5 hours and my hands did not work when I left. Gloves did not help as they just got wet right away. The event was a plant sale. They opened at 11:00 and started giving out numbers at 6:00. When they opened the doors over 1200 numbers had been given. I think people who came at opening had to stand in line for over 2 hours. Not my kind of event. Tomorrow will be a bit different. It should be no rain and we may even see some sun in the afternoon. I think I will be happy at 2:00 tomorrow.
I intend to boil the eggs and the potatoes for the salad tonight and then make it tomorrow afternoon. I do not think I will have the energy to do it all tomorrow. BUT I think I could do the boiling tomorrow and maybe make it after Travis and I go out for breakfast on Sunday. Maybe that would work. I do not know if it is better right away or a day later. I know that Gail often thought in the second day it may tend to get a bit dry. Joan give me the recipe, which I really appreciated, but no amounts. It seems that to dice and slice and dump things in may be dangerous for a guy like me. I will try and if there is a lot left over I will know it didn't turn out the best.
I have thought a lot about Gail today but with not many tears. A year ago she was at this time still doing very well and feeling like she may be getting better. Now a year later we are coming up on 8 months after her death. I do feel like I am doing much better but right at this time it seems like I have almost too much on my plate and really it is not much at all. Maybe I function a bit differently at 63 than I did at 53 or 43.
My brother Dave sent a picture from Jamestown ND where they live and it looks like January there
I am soliciting advice tonight. I took a woodtic out of my leg and think I got it all but it left a sore spot. I am wondering if I need to do anything. I did put some onitiment on it. I need my nurse!!!!
Enough for tonight.
