My "Crabby Cabbie" has arrived home and was conversing with our Paul, who had fallen asleep in the Easy chair in the living room. It is cold, Paul goes to retrieve kindling from the basement in order for Rob to "fire" up the wood stove.
Rob does eventually come to bed, with me lying there until 7 pm before I arise to come out to a warm house and my three boys, or four should I count our Bandit boy.
Once Holly had gotten up from bed, Paul and I headed downtown into Wiarton to retrieve us all a treat by getting us a Tim Horton coffee and the boys a box of Tim Bit Donuts.
When Paul and I had returned with the Tim Horton goodies we had been surprised Rob was up with having only had 2 hours, if that, of sleep.
Paul had promised the boys we would go for a walk this morning before they had to head back home, so the four of us got ready to head back towards town. I was just hoping when we had returned Holly hadn't been any worse for wear by Rob's teasing ... as it was she did survive after all.
The kids packed up their stuff and headed on home before the Lunch hour. Thank goodness I got out of more meal making and dishes ... those dishes are never ending !!! Ha !
My poor Rob went back to bed. Me? not a darn thing I did this afternoon as my whole body was in surmountable pain with every muscle from "head to toe" feeling as they were going to come right through my skin. I am thinking this Fibromyalgia "flare up" has been caused with this sudden onslaught of weather change we are experiencing right now. *Sigh* not a good thing for such ailments at these times, or otherwise.
Another day spent in a lull of fatigue and pain behind the scenes of the comfort of my own home, rather then out and covering the pain most times with a "mask" of "I am fine". Anyone else who suffers from Fibromyalgia knows exactly what I mean when I speak of hiding behind a "mask" of wellness when inside the muscles are screaming and there is pain shooting through various parts of your body.
Weather changes? there is lots of that going on right now with the onslaught of Hurricane Sandy, meeting up with two other storm fronts to the creation of a "Frankenstorm" so it has been named in the wake of a fast approaching Halloween.
It wasn't too long ago a friend had posted to her Facebook page a warning for the Grey Bruce areas, which can be found by *clicking* HERE .
Batten down the "hatches" to be prepared, as we never know what is every around the corner, now do we? Thoughts and prayers to all for to be safe and protected that are or will be in the path of this storm.
I had what I had thought to be 1 cup of pumpkin needing used up in the fridge, which turned out to be 1 1/2 cup. I had a friend send me a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Muffins which I changed up to make my "own" late this afternoon.
Recipe please? PRINTABLE RECIPE HERE.
Before I forget I must "share" the "what I thought to be a good read" on the behalf of women, over at my friend, John's at Tok Tok Place. I found both humor in it to some extent, as well seeing the irony and bare truth of it all ... touche' for it being "put out there" in the defense of all woman in the work place, or not. Thanks to John for posting. For this read I speak of please *click* HERE.
I know it wouldn't surprise too many if I made the statement I am "tired" and won't be long from my bed this evening. It has been a very busy couple of days in my life, however enjoyable, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard."
