It was a Dark and Stormy Night

Not really, but that’s the name of Kelly’s blog and since today is her birthday –

Happy Birthday Kelly! I hope you have a great day.

Oh, and Happy Anniversary Brandy and Chris!

So, where was I last night? Not on blogger, obviously. I usually post the night before, but for some reason, blogger didn’t like me last night. I couldn’t get on any blogger site. I have it from the best authorities that it was just me. Wonderful. Blogger hates me.

It’s going to be interesting today. We had ice/snow yesterday, and what melted then has re-frozen (is that a word?) over night, so I’ll be facing some possibly slick roads. Fun. That is, if I can get off the porch - the ramp doesn't look all that promising right now. Possibility of more within the next 72 hours. Although one of our stations doesn't think so - but then, this was the same station that said we weren't going to get anything yesterday, that it would stay south of us. Yeah, like I'll believe them this time.

Oh, and while the gums are still swollen, a combination of ibuprofen and boiled cloves has stopped the pain, for now. I’m hoping to get out to my local Vitamin World to pick up some actual clove oil. If the oil works as well as the boiled cloves, then I’m in seventh heaven. I have this book – The Green Pharmacy by James A. Duke, Ph.D. – which has been a great source for herbal remedies, since I can’t afford actual prescriptions. I need to pick up some Nettles too, that’s great for sinuses.

Wednesday was a productive day – on the writing front, not the house cleaning. Oh well, maybe the cats can hold it in one more day. (I really need to get those boxes cleaned) The muses wouldn’t leave me alone, so I got a lot accomplished. Yes, my readers, I’ll get it sent out to you.

That’s really all for now. I know, another brilliant post Bailey. Don’t know how you manage to be both informing and entertaining at the same time. (this is where I need the goofy grin smilie) Hey, some days are like that – usually Thursday’s. Poor neglected Thursday. I still say I need a bear.

Wednesday wordage:

2,028 words (yeah, you’re reading that right)
Total words: 9,809 WhooHoo!

Blogger hates me.

Blogger hates everybody, IMO. I've lost count of the number of times I haven't been able to comment on somebody's blog here or on Blogspot. *hugs*

Good luck in the ice, stay safe!

Blogger functions as if in a state of perpetual PMS.

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

Woo-hoo on the words! Hugs on the tooth pain. Stay safe. We're back up as of yesterday late afternoon, but we're supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow on top of the ice this weekend. ARGH!

Clove oil is a miracle for oral pain. When I had my wisdom teeth removed, they stuffed the cavities with clove oil. If it weren't for that stuff, I'd have gone insane.

I'm so thrilled to see you writing so much.

Stacy Dawn said...
