108 in Lawrence KS????

Holy friggin oven Batman! Is it really 108 in Lawrence today??? Yes!

My question is if the temp on the fridge says the top temp is lower than it actually is, does that violate truth in advertising???? When do the weather men and their models get thrown out the window!!


Day 2 of PT. feeling stronger. Better. Faster. Yes Lindsay Wagner, watch out.
With mobility comes, Buck’s thinking that we may go out on a walk. That and my hope I could drive soon???? Rob says nope. Bummer.

Instead, Buck is bringing out all his toys.


While I have kicked them out of the way. He strings them out in a line to provide his own PT therapy for mom. Toy avoidance!

PS. All my doctor friends. Seriously how long does it take to wash the iodine bentectine jaundice yellow off the leg??? It isnSTILL there.

Stir Crazy

Update on the knee. Bandages are off and I can visably see the swelling going down. Two showers and I still can’t get that gross yellow iodine wash off. Ick

Stir crazy is setting in. Big time. After all, there is only so many Zulu movies and baseball games a girl can watch.

Reprieve. We went out to dinner and tried the new Oklahoma Joe’s. BBQ, as you know, is hotly disputed whose is best. Joe’s delivers good fast food. Nothing fancy. Their new place in Leawood, creates the easy atmosphere of the gas station in Mission.

Hobbling on crutches, the greeter made sure we knew what to do and offered a seat right away. Thanks Joe!!!!


Now settling in for opening Ceremony for the Olympics.

So now, since the IOC won’t do it. . . Please join me in a moment of silence and remembrance for the Israeli athletes that lost their lives to evil terrorists 40 years ago.

May the spirit of goodness follow these athletes all through the games.


Well, if you haven’t done it already, get outside already. I’m not quite behind you, PT starts tomorrow, but give me a couple more days.

Crispy Dosa

Oh Yum!  Puja shares this delicious sounding recipe with me. 


3 cup rice (chawal)
1 cup split black gram lentil (urad ki dhuli dal)
1 tsp salt (namak)
1 tsp fenugreek seeds (dana methi)
oil as required

How to make dosa:
Soak rice, dal and dana methi for 6 hours.
Then grind them to a fine thin batter by adding little water.
Add salt to it and leave it covered for 12 hours for fermentation.
Now heat a non stick tawa and spread 1 tbsp of the batter on the whole of the pan.
Grease all the corners and then cook it on the other side also.
Put little water on the tawa and wipe it with a clean cloth before making each dosa.



Beach Day at the K

Beach Day

Definition. Any day you are playing hooky not doing work.

Today’s beach day is at the K. It is 98 degrees. HOT. And a slight breeze from the south.
The hat is a San Diego Hat. I love these!!!!! Finely woven raffia with a very wide brim. Tank top covered with camping cool micro fiber long sleeve shirt makes the heat easy to beat.


So what are you all doing today??????

Come on already! Go get out side already and get some D!
