Update on my mother-in-law, she was released from the hospital on Friday. They couldn't find anything wrong with her, so no surgery was needed. But she needs rest, so she's at home and everything is calming down a bit. Lo-Gung is sternly warning me to take my blood pressure meds (I seem to have forgotten to take it lately) so I don't have to endure the same thing in like 40 years (bit of eye rolling on my part, but oh well).
This morning was misty and gray, and a bit on the chilly side. I woke up pretty early, and decided to bake Irish soda bread for breaksfast. Yay for prepackaged mixes, cuz all I had to do was dump it into a bowl, add a cup of water and mix and bake. The smell of fresh bread baking in the oven permeated the house with a nice smell. After it was done, took it out, let it cool on the rack for a bit. Cut a generous slice and had it for breakfast with coffee.
Sometimes its the simple things in life that make us happy.
