Good Day - Rough Day

Tuesday afternoon my dear friend delivered a loaf of her wonderful lemon poppyseed zucchini bread. It was wrapped in aluminum foil and it was still WARM! Great surprise! Needless to say I cut me a slice to have with supper.

Wednesday after my nap I dug out the old Daisy sealer and the roll of foodsaver plastic that my brother had given me when I couldn't find any more of the original type seal bags. *I blogged about this in the past. The thing is, the old bags were already sealed at one end and were individual items of two different sizes. It just another 'make-do' project now and has been useful several times - just a little more work. *Links to old blogs at the bottom here.

They have been popped into the freezer and I can have one slice at a time.

The 'rough day' part is that I went to the local health system to get my usual 8 week shoulder injection. The original orthopedic surgeon has retired and this was my second visit with the new fellow. The last time went ok, even though I had to have lumbar x-rays for a badly sprained back but the shoulder shot hit the mark well. Today he didn't seem to be sure of where to inject and was asking me where it should go. I only remember where the original guy did it so I indicated the area. After he removed the needle, he grabbed some gauze as the injection site was bleeding. (I am not on any blood thinners.) The bad thing was - are you ready? The blood stained the back neck of my brand new special mauve waffle weave shirt! It was the first time I wore it and did so, knowing it would stretch over the shoulder to make access easy. I couldn't wait to get home and rinse it out with cold water. Yes, it did come out.

OLD Food Sealer

My Two Loaves


  1. Great idea, to freeze the loaf,in individual slices! Learn something new, in Pretty Blog Land, all the while!

    Ugh to the bleed! But sooooo glad, it rinsed out! Yikes, what a 'downer.' -sigh-

    Btw, these 'dresses' I use all year round... They are not fancy dresses! They are muumuus and the like. Just cotton. Or corduroy, in winter. These being sleeveless and just pop over the head.

    I wear all of them with a T-shirt in summer, and a turtle neck in winter.

    And long, because my legs are not 'pretty' anymore. -smile-

    So when I say "I dress in dresses," it is like saying ="Tasha Tudor wore dresses. -smile-

    Tasha Tudor


  2. -sigh- That click-able link doesn't work. I can't remember the *magic* way, to do a click-able link.

    Maybe just do a search on Tasha Tudor. I'm sure you will find pictures of her.

    All this, in case you are not familiar with her. If you know her, this is not necessary. -smile-


    1. I just copied the website address and pasted it into a new address line and got there fine! Interesting lady, she was!

  3. Mmmmm, I bet that bread is delicious!! Smart idea on individually wrapped slices.
