I decided if I was going to post at all this week, I had better do it tonight, instead of waiting until tomorrow, whenI know I will be very very sick. To tell you the truth, I am not feeling too well tonight either. I can certainly think of better times in my life. I am not particularly in the best shape to start taking all the stuff I have to take tomorrow for my colonoscopy Wednesday. Actually, I haven't felt really well all week. It was stake conference this last weekend and I didn't get to either of the meetings. Dick had to go for both of us, I'm afraid. I just feel so week and listless, it seems that all I want to do is sleep. I almost hated to get out of bed this morning. I suppose I will get through this, but how I am dreading the whole thing!! Hopefully, I won't have to take any more of these for the rest of my life. I haven't had one for five years, so guess I am due one more.........darn!
I was going to do a post about my sweet husband, but I am really not prepared to do that tonight, so it will have to wait until I am feeling lots lots better, maybe next Tuesday, maybe not, but soon anyway.
Since my week was pretty uneventful, I won't even mention it, only to say that it has been quite a bit warmer. I think most days around 105 degrees. I really don't mind that so much as of course we have air conditioning, and I really do like it hot when we go in the pool, which we did every day until Friday. Dick had to go to the doctor Friday afternoon and I didn't want to go in without him, so we missed out pool exercises that day and all weekend. We would have gone in today, but I just didn't feel well enough. This is the longest we have gone without exercising in a long long time. I think I will be able to go in Thursday and will go Saturday to make up for days we missed this week. We usually only do it five days a week. Next week should see us back on a regular schedule and I am sure I will feel lots better by then.
Okay, Karen, this one's for you: ( and anyone else who might like to make this yummy, super easy pie)
Key Lime Pie:
1 Baked pie shell ( I usually buy ready made shortbread ones. I don't like a
graham cracker one for these.)
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk 14 oz.
1/2 cup key lime juice
2 extra large or 3 large egg yolks, beaten just a bit
Blend milk, lime juice, and egg yolk until smooth and pour into shell. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees, cool and refrigerate.
It is so so easy and really delicious. Some people like to put a bit of grated rind in it too, but the key limes I get are so small and sort of a brownish green plus it would be almost impossible to get any grater to remove the rind because it is too hard and dry. Of course it could be made with just plain limes or even lemon juice, but trust me, key limes are the best. I usually serve it with cool whip, but if you prefer whippped cream, go for it! This recipe is very similar to the Pioneer Woman's recipe but I didn't get it there.
My fingers haven't been working too well because I have been trying to do a bit of knitting. I can only do a few rows a day, but it's enough to make my whole hands hurt because I have arthriis in them so badly. It's hell to get old, but a whole lot better than the alternative. I need to hang in at least five more years, and I appreciate all of you wonderful blogger friends who keep rooting for me. I do love you all.................
