If I hadn't been there yesterday, I wouldn't have believed Joe had been in the hospital. He is back to himself and says he feels wonderful. He is watching what he is eating, but otherwise he's himself again. I know he had over 50 people praying for him and we believe that is the reason he recovered so quickly.
This morning I made apple cinnamon muffins for breakfast. They were so good with my cup of tea.
Around lunch time Joe says he wants to go out for lunch -- his treat. I looked at him and said, "But you were just in the hospital yesterday!" He said, "I feel fine." So we ended up at East Coast Wings and Grill, one of our favorite places. Joe wanted an appetizer and chose Pub Pretzels. They were described in the menu as hot soft pretzels. I said they would be too heavy and I didn't want any. But when they came, they were nothing like what we expected.
They are very light and airy and oh so good. Joe ate one and then insisted I try one.
Ever since I took that picture of Joe with his ice cream on Father's Day he keeps making this pose. *sigh* I just humor him. Ha, ha,
Joe was very good with his meal. He had a chef's salad with no dressing.
You know I had to try the flavor of the month on my wings -- Bacon Ranch. And I got their homemade potato chips too. It was good, but not my favorite flavor.
After we ate we went next door to Shop Rite to get a few things. I was looking for something else, but found this beautiful rose scented candle. It smells so good that I had to get it. It was only $1.99. I like to have a candle burning in the living room in the evening.
Have you ever tried these? Cashews with pomegranate and vanilla. Someone at work gave them to me for Christmas last year and they are so good. I saw them at the checkout line and splurged. They aren't cheap, but worth every penny.
I was really happy today to find one of my favorite pair of earrings. I was in the bathroom and saw something shining on the floor. I bent down to pick it up and there they were. Still on the card. I had another pair exactly like this but I lost one of them in Tennessee. I went to Rite Aid and bought another pair and promptly lost them too. They must have stuck to something and ended up on the floor somehow. Where they've been for the past four months is anyone's guess. They are crystals that change color in the light.
I didn't get a lot done around the house today, but anything is something in my book. Snowy, however, feels I am ignoring her. She has squeezed between me and the computer in order to get my attention. She really is a sweet cat. But sometimes I guess I do ignore her when I get busy.
It's very late and I need to get some sleep. Until later...
