Well my meatless Monday came in handy last night! Oatmeal that just slid down without the need for chewing. Yogurt for breakfast and a mashed potato for lunch. Tonight I making some tomato soup in the crock pot. My face is pretty swollen on the left side. It is actually easier to see using my smashed up glasses because they adjust better to the asymmetry. Tylenol seems to be taking care of the aches and pains though. The pharmacist recommended Tylenol because of my blood pressure medication and I am just happy that I don't feel the need for the strong stuff.
The purple is now a big circle around my left eye so eye shadow is not going to be of much help. My lip is actually black and blue. Hard to believe that some starlets actually pay money to get this bee-sting effect. It's quite annoying.
I divided up my orchid bouquet and have been enjoying flowers in every room. As many pointed out, Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Color of the Year. I am not usually not so much up on the fashion trends, but here I am with orchid orchids, an orchid trimmed tissue box, and a matching purple face.
I got a call from InStride today and they would like me to work in their literacy program which takes place on Thursday mornings. It is not my choice of a time slot, but it is apparently what they most need doing right now. I warned them, but they may take one look on Thursday and decide I would scare the little kids. We shall see. I really got a nice feel about the place at the orientation so I am looking forward to spending some time there.
Today has been quite gloomy outside. I had a little bit of gardening to finish up from my labors over the weekend, but several rain showers saved me the effort of dragging out the hose to water some new plants. A rabbit ate all my parsley.
Silly rabbit! I am pretty sure it has a burrow next to the air conditioner. I also have heard that there has been a coyote lurking about, so that rabbit better watch out.
