Tuesday morning has dawned sunny and hot! I’m starting off the day with this Earl Grey from Ahmad Teas. I used the cucumber tea from yesterday to make a pitcher iced. Tossed in a few mint leaves, a bit of english cucumber and a lime. It is so refreshing in this heat.
Monday is a day off for us so after finishing our individual projects we went to the movies in the middle of the afternoon. There were 6 people in there. We had agreed we wanted to see Deadpool 2 because, well, Ryan Reynolds. There was so much blood and body parts flying around that at one point I almost threw up in the popcorn bucket. Seriously I was gagging. The man in front of us went to sleep, woke up, went to the bathroom, came back and went to sleep. I want those skills!
I was disappointed in this one. Too much Ryan and not enough plot or time for the other characters I love. By the time we got home that roast beast in the crock pot smelled like heaven! This time I had used an organic French Onion Soup stock and tossed in some potatoes and carrots. Smelled amazing!
I have to go to the eye institute today. Who knows what’s going on? Dr. D is trying to get me off the heavy steroid drops twice a day and on to a lighter steroid 3 times a week. The least expensive ones are over $200 for a tiny bottle. So we shall see.
I got called out on the entire birthday party debacle. By my own child no less, who reminded me that I once had an entire western town built for one of his birthdays and for another one everyone dressed as a pirate and had to search the entire club for treasure. But I did point out at no time did he believe he was a horse or an actual pirate. There was that one time he brought like 6 little kids to the house and when I asked him what was going on he looked at me and motioned to his group and said, “These are my people. I’m their Leader now.” I will never forget that. For all of a week my 5-year-old was a cult leader. That year we all had to wear white to his party. The moral being I shouldn’t be talking shit about another mother. And he is right. But I’m still going to do it cause it’s batshit crazy!!
I hope everyone is having a productive and peaceful day and now I’m going to go tan until my eye appointment.
xxPatricia Have tea. Be Nice. Make someone smile!
