You certainly don't need a fire around here (except to toast your marshmallows). It is so warm and spring like. We broke all kinds of records having three days in the 70s (20s C.) in a row. I am enjoying the warmth, but somehow it doesn't seem right being so warm so soon. It's going back down into the 40s (single digits C.) by next week though. And right now we are having a very windy thunder and lightning storm. It sounds awful and I'm so thankful for my dry and warm home.
On Wednesday I took Joe to his doctor's appointment at the VA Hospital. The doctor was running behind and we had to wait over an hour to see him. But when we got in I didn't have the heart to be upset. The guy was sick. I said to him that he should have stayed home and he said he was too busy that day but hoped to go home early. I hope he did. He said something that I thought was very profound to us. I mentioned how quickly Joe was healing and said it was due to all the prayers being said for him. Dr. B said it was because God heals, doctors just treat. And without God no one would get well. I never thought about it that way, but he's right. It's so refreshing to have a Christian doctor.
Joe is doing so much better. Almost all of his scabs have fallen off. His bruises are going away instead of new ones popping up. Thank you a million times for all of your prayers for him. Two weeks ago I would never have believed he would heal this quickly.
On the way home from the hospital we were both hungry so we stopped at East Coast Wings. It's the first time Joe has been out since the fall. It was good for him to see something besides the inside of our house. He got a burger because it was easy to eat and fries. I got my chicken wings, this time with Honey Garlic sauce which was so good, and tortilla chips. I had mango iced tea too which was awesome.
Joe is still not back to himself. He is lightheaded a lot and his blood pressure drops often. But he is so very much better than he was.
I finally burned my jewelry candle down to the jewelry. I had ordered a necklace candle but when I opened the package it was a ring! But a pretty ring.
I made some muffins today using a new recipe that I got off of epicurious.com. They are OK, but not really great. It's good to try something new. We will eat them, but I will not be making them again. They are more like a biscuit than a muffin. I'll try again with a different recipe.
Oh, it sounds as if our storm is over. Guess I'll go start dinner then. Hope you all have a great evening.
