I hadn't been at my Doctor's for a weekly shot since before Christmas, and only once two days after New Year's Day when I was so sick.
Dr. Loney did briefly touch base with me about my CT Scan I had done two weeks prior. He told me something underlying the pneumonia was showing up, and he will be taking some blood samples next Friday when I am back in, as he was a bit behind this morning. More waiting .... I really think it is the unknown and the waiting that drives us "NUTS", does it not? I am thinking I will be trying NOT to worry about this, and take it as it comes, as really how else can it be dealt with otherwise?
I have been still feeling somewhat *void* of energy, with a slight pain in my chest. Medications are all done with, so we will see how things take their course, hopefully in the right direction. I am still taking it "easy" !
I must report with all this accumulated snow we have gotten the past day or two, my Snowmen, inside and out have been quite content with it all ...... as you can tell.
I suppose the crisp cold is much better to "kill" off those nasty bugs that have been attacking our bodies, and easier on the bones then the dampness. I suppose I will dress accordingly, keep the home fires burning, and not go outside unless I absolutely have to .... no worried my dear "pack", Bandit, Lexus and Mercedes, I will not forget about you three !!!!
Yesterday I decided I was going to make Macaroni and Cheese today for our Dinner, so once we arrived back home from my Doctors, North of the Checkerboard, I got right to it.
Yummy, was this Macaroni and Cheese every creamy and good. Absolutely loved it and happy there is some leftover for tomorrow's lunch. The recipe I used was out of my very old standby Recipe Book, "The Purity Cookbook", which was my very first Cookbook.
The recipe is as follows:
Macaroni and Cheese
Preheat Oven to 350*F
Grease a 1 1/2 quart casserole
In saucepan, heat until foamy
2 tablespoons of margarine
Add and cook until onion is transparent.
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 - 10 ounce can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/3 cup milk
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Heat stirring constantly, until cheese is melted.
3 cups cooked elbow macaroni
1/2 cup canned tomatoes
Turn into prepared casserole. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Makes 6 servings.
NOTE: I used more macaroni, cheese and tomatoes when making mine.
All in a day's morning. Dishes have been rinsed and waiting for me to wash them. They will get done, along with the load of wash still hanging dry on the clothes horse in front of the woodstove, all in good time.
The day has been grey, cold and crisp. Now it being almost the time has come around for my "Crabby Cabbie" to leave for what he does best, of course here comes the snowflakes ! Hopefully they will stay light and not as bad as yesterday was, as it took him some time to get himself back home last night in the nasty weather.
I am thinking this has been pretty much my day thus far, and I am going to enjoy a coffee with my Crabby Cabbie before he takes his leave, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
