Heading off shortly we hope to get some "labs" and "blood work" done for Dear Wife in advance of a medical procedure scheduled for the coming Friday and another for the Friday thereafter. Part of our "interesting" (in the sense of the old Chinese curse) life.
Well, we made it through. TWELVE tubes of blood for "labs" and a few other samples later.
Her "samples' had to be from a "fasting" state, so when we got up she couldn't eat (which is hard on her stomach) and so I couldn't either. Or have coffee either, so I couldn't either, which is a terrible thing for us both as we are known "coffeeholics". So a drive on lousy roads. LONG waits, two of them, at the hospital lab that is "in-network", and then home. So "breakfast" didn't happen until around 11:00. "Lunch" was at 4:10 p.m.
She just took her weekly Humira shot and will be kicking back for a while.
I'm not in real good shape myself, but will get through, somehow. Always do. But I may "kick back" for a while myself.
I have seen some "interesting" weather forecasts. Note, please, that we are completing the first full week of May. OK? Conjures up some sunny images of warm Spring weather, right? Well, one of the forecasts has us dancing toe-to-toe with the freezing mark on Sunday and Monday nights!! Another forecast warns of possible freezing rain, with some possibility of SNOW!! In MAY!!
But I was just lectured that there is no such thing as global cooling, that everything is catastrophic warming. Pile of lies is what it is.
The Old Testament reading is chapters 10 and 11 of 1st Kings. This is the time of King Solomon, described as the wisest man who had ever live. But not all of his acts were worthy and wise. The affiliation with Pharaoh of Egypt was unwise. So was his involvement with MANY wives. Seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines in addition, is neither wise nor appropriate. And caused many problems. He should have learned from the example of his own father David and how even a much smaller number of wives and dalliances led to major problems.
I Kings 11
The New Testament reading is verses 1-35 of Luke 24.
He is risen!!
