I am not feeling much like a human, but being able to come here and read your wishes for me to get better sure puts a nice perspective on it. On a scale of 1 to 10, I am about a 3 right now, while the previous two days were 1's. I can't sleep now because I have slept off and on all day. I guess I will browse blogs until I feel tired enough to go to bed. I can't take any more Nyquil until 2:30 am, but I might not make it that far....LOL.....I'm sort of spacey as it is!
My neighborhood women's organization had a St. Patrick's Day party on Tuesday, but I couldn't go, of course. I did flowers for it - Bells of Ireland - and made 2 pounds of fresh bacon bits. The main course was to be baked potatoes, and all the women were bringing either wine, salad, or a topper for the potatoes. We were asked to come in costume, or at least wearing green, and I am told that about 15 out of the 22-23 attendees followed that order, at least partly. They had fun; I feel sorry for myself that I couldn't go. I'll get over it - eventually - LOL.
I heard some bad news today. A wedding cake baker here died from complications during surgery for high blood pressure or something heart related. This guy will be sorely missed. He was an amazing person; when I first met him he weighed over 300 pounds. I didn't work with him again for 3-4 years, and when I saw thim the next time, I didn't recognize him. He had joined a gym (the same one we belong to) and after 1-2 years of exercising, he had lost over 120 pounds. I saw him at the gym and he was so buff and trim I had no idea who he was. Then I heard him speak, and since his voice was so specific to him, I finally realized who he was. I asked him what he had done to lose so much weight - and he answered....."I stopped tasting my wedding cakes". Unfortunately, even though he was religious about exercising and being careful of his diet, he had a hidden blood pressure problem that caused heart damage. I don't know this guy's age, but I don't think he was over 40. It is so sad. Local brides will be inconsolable, since Greg had been the baker of choice around here for a long time. Rest in peace, Greg.
