Wish you were here...

Having just two icy cold cocktails at night make me a very sound sleeper and last night I managed to sleep 8 hours. I think I could have slept longer if I had not been so stubborn as to want to get up and be in need of a cup of coffee. If two cocktails are all it takes to get me to sleep well, I think they are a very good habit to get into and I am not at all worried about turning into a lush. As a matter of fact, I had a bit of a hard time finishing the second one and left some of it standing on the little table beside my armchair. It shows you what kind of a hardline drinker I am.
My ex left behind four unopened packages of expensive lunchmeats, and rather than having to throw them away, I have decided to eat the contents on whole grain bread with thick slices of Gouda cheese and mayonnaise. This only bothers my conscious a little bit, because I didn't buy them and they would otherwise go to waste. I suppose that makes me an adaptable vegetarian. I am realistic enough to not throw away perfectly good food and the sandwiches are very good and filling. I have also decided to not try to be perfect anymore.
Yesterday, I discovered that I had a big tube of body mud mask and I applied it to my feet, which were rough with callouses, and found out that this made them very soft. I think if I apply it regularly, it will do my feet a lot of good. I am always putting good smelling crèmes on my feet to try and make them soft, but this stuff is really doing the job. I am sure that there is a product that is made especially for this purpose and as soon as I run out of body mud mask, I will go to the drugstore and find it.
It's time to take Tyke for a walk and gently exercise my knee. We don't go for a long walk because I can't handle that. I am being a bit more careful now after having been to the emergency room for the second time.

I'm glad you found something that helps you rest well. Getting appropriate rest is so important.

And th ex leaving you that meat. What a treat! (And you did give some to Tyke, yes?)

I hope that you can rest your knee so it sin;t so painful.

Sounds like your knee is getting better, slowly so I'm pleased about that.
Hope you are enjoying our warmer weather but it is very balmy/ thundery at the moment.
