Today, exbf came to help me. He has not been here in a month, per my wishes. Snow and ice made it too much for him I thought. Even if he made it here, doubtful, He would have been trying to walk on ice with two hips that needed replacement five years ago.
This morning, he came in the door at my feet telling me, "Get up, get up! Get out of bed!" I was feeling too bad to respond harshly and loudly. Maybe hit him. Next week, I will get to the bottom of that! Well, if I feel better.
He sat in my chair when he sat today. That was so I did not have to move some boxes off the sofa for him to sit there. I was in bed, lying down or sitting on it like now. I did not lie down enough today.
He drove me to Walmart to get water. Then, he drove me to laundry and helped me get the laundry out of the machines and did the lifting in and our of the car. I have one bag of panties to hang up, and a huge bag of other white things to hang in the house. I use a trash bag because it easier to manage that a laundry basket. My torn rotator cuffs thank me. Today, I cooked pasta, drained it and put it in the crockpot with two jars of commercially canned Spaghetti sauce. Two different brands and two different varieties worked well.
To this I added way too much meat, dehydrated celery, olive oil, and cinnamon. You are not supposed to taste cinnamon, but I put so much that it tastes like cinnamon. He raved over this and was so happy he had almost two quarts to take home. There is a bowl with almost two quarts in my refrigerator, and I am happy, too. Mine will have some tomato sauce added to tame the cinnamon. The spaghetti was not bad even with way too much cinnamon. Parmesan cheese dampened the cinnamon taste for me, hopefully a bit more tomato will drive it back.We love the meat, so "too much" is not really too much. It is just more than I usually put in this dish.
Brussel sprouts was the quickest vegetable to cook, so Brussels sprouts, spaghetti, and grapes were dinner. Yes, I checked all the frozen packages for cooking time.
No, I am not better, just more exhausted/
Oh, he helped me clean out part of my car, but I had to be out there so he would know exactly what I wanted to do with things.
He changed the pinestraw for the hens. He dumps their sleeping straw into the pen. Then, he takes the clean straw from their laying box and puts it in the sleeping box.
I did manage to get the larger, secret surprise, Crock Pot washed today to combine all that spaghetti.
Did you ever become ill and then have to participate in work when you had just as soon stay in bed. Have you ever added too much of something, like cinnamon in my spaghetti and eaten it anyway?
Two eggs today.
Wild dreams last night.
