Last night when P got home from work he took his "out to the mailbox" trip. He came in with 2 packages....wow!
The first contained adorable snowmen candles from Alfred's mom. So cute and I love snowmen! I always hate to burn cute candles. I think I may put these around for Christmas Eve dinner.
Then the next box....a couple of wrapped gifts and a tin of cookies! Now I knew from the box that this was from Norman and the woman...and I've had cookies made by the woman and the mean one, so I dug in...literally. P tried to check things out and I bit him...only kidding! What an assortment of treats! I told the woman that the doctor said to add a glass of milk to my diet, do you think she meant milk AND COOKIES????
I thought about saving the wrapped gifts for Christmas, but then decided "heck no". The woman made me this BEAUTIFUL SCARF!!!! Honestly, as a crafter, I so LOVE getting a gift made for me! My Secret Santa, Norman, gave me the beautiful necklace! It is so different. That Norman he knows I love the Pug stuff!!!! Thanks thanks thanks!!!!
I put on a turtleneck, my necklace and my scarf and my girlfriend here took me out for a bit of shopping.
Now move forward to this morning. C woke me to help with the banana bread she was baking for work. We put it in the oven and I set the "timer" on the microwave for 45 minutes. After 21 minutes I heard a popping noise and the house smelled like pumpkin spice...hmmmmm, strange....
UH OH.....that wasn't the timer.....that was COOK!!!! Apparently the drugs from surgery have not yet worn off. I put a cup of coffee in the micro last night to reheat. Obviously, I never reheated but did indeed COOK it for 21 minutes. Could have been worse, it could have cooked for 45! The microwave is clean...the cup....well, it may be a pencil holder now.
I did venture to work today. I drove P's truck. Turning the key left handed was interesting. I think I may have drove like a granny, but I got there and worked until 1pm, then headed to drs. appt. and home. P wanted to go shopping, but my hand was hurting and I said I needed to take a quick nap....I got up 2 1/2 hours later. I'm not sure having this surgery before Christmas was such a good idea.
