Back to Normal?

Well, perhaps things will return to normal one day – and I’m on the road there.  I returned from my cruise 2 weeks ago this past Friday.  On the way driving home from the airport Middle Daughter called and asked if it was OK they came up for the weekend.  Heck yes!  So they did.  And surprise – she cooked did the shopping and then cooked enough meals to last me 2 weeks!  Freezer and fridge were wonderfully full.  I was off on the Monday, and they stayed until Tuesday morning.  I returned to work and came home to an empty house.  And I heated up a delightful meal.

I awoke on Wed all ache-y.  By the end of the day it was clear I was coming down with a cold.  I came home, took some meds and heated up another little meal before putting myself to bed.  I felt better Thurs morning – so off to the office I went.  Just couldn’t make it, so home I came where I took to my bed and stayed there (for the most part) until this past Thursday.  Boy – did that cold knock me for a loop.  I’ve still got a bit of it, but I’m feeling so much better.  Middle Daughter and family arrived on Thursday and she spent Friday cooking again.  My fridge and freezer are almost overflowing:


And if you know me, this is a very unusual sight as I’m generally out of almost everything!  Now the only thing I have to decide is which lovely meal I fancy each day.  THANK YOU STEPH!!

Before I came down with THE COLD I ordered a new computer.  27″ iMac.  It came while I was sick and I couldn’t even get it out of the box.  But I’m happy to report that it’s now resting on my desk.  I’ve spent most of yesterday afternoon and evening as well as today getting my software transferred from my MacBook to the new machine and tidying up my photos, transferring them.  And fixing my photoblog which decided to be a bit persnickety.


It’s a bit dark because of the lighting in my room — and a bit grainy because of the high ISO, but you get the idea.  My second monitor will be connected as soon as the mini adapter arrives later this week.

Back to work tomorrow – and I’d really rather be home playing.
