Greetings from Louisiana!
Another post without pictures. No camera cord. (sigh)
This trip was very hastily planned as I wasn't cleared to fly until Saturday, June 1st, when the doctor called me with test results. I flew out on Tuesday. The trip about did me in. It took two days to recover, but I can report that all is better now.
I was awakened this morning by rumbling thunder. O-M-G, it's raining so hard outside! If this much rain hit Southern California, we'd be sliding off into the Pacific. I tried standing on the porch to watch the rain, but the lightning scared me. So I'm snuggled up on the sofa with a cup of coffee listening to it really coming down hard. I love this kind of weather, but, of course, I'm not a farmer and I don't have to drive on the freeways today, so that's easy for me to say!
So far I haven't done much here except trips to Lowe's, Walmart and Winn-Dixie! I was going to do some exploring today, but I guess that's out with the rain. I sure hope I can get some boiled crawfish while I'm here. My brother and sister-in-law had a commitment this weekend, so I was on my own. I was invited to meet friends at a restaurant to get crawfish last night, but I had no clue how to get there, so thought it best I not get lost on dark country roads. I'm sure Search & Rescue have more important things to do than go looking for a lost Left Coast gal!
Speaking of that, I'm reminded again and again that I'm a "foreigner" in this part of the country. It's really funny because hardly a day goes by in California without someone asking me where I'm from - the accent, you know. Well, two or three times this past week someone here asked me the same question. Sheesh...
I might try to embroider a bit today. I've had no luck thus far because of the weakness of my left hand, but I keep trying.
I'll see if I can't pick up a camera cord this week and post some pictures.
Gosh, I'm happy as a pig in mud being here. Too bad I've used up every bit of leave and vacation for these surgeries. It will be a long while before I'm able to come home again.
