Trying to Get Over the Blehs

Yesterday's blehs turned into not feeling well. I went to the kitchen to make a blueberry coffee cake and suddenly felt hot and feverish and light-headed. Managed to get the coffee cake into the oven. Fever feeling passed, but my insides definitely didn't feel right. Went for the old stand-by, Alka Seltzer. (Side note: my aunt had a mynah bird that they taught to say "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" and "Try it. You'll like it." I can still see him bobbing up and down while reciting."

Still didn't feel terrific by time DH got home, but felt slightly more stable. So I tried something new for dinner. Which I can highly recommend. A sweet corn omelet.


Corn. Cheese. Eggs. Yumm.

Take one ear of corn and remove the kernels. Place a tsp of butter in small fry pan. Let melt, but not brown. Add corn. Cook for two - three minutes. Add two beaten eggs. With the corn it becomes slightly tricky to cook this in conventional omelet style, but I managed. You could always slide the omelet onto a plate and flip it over into the pan. I used cream cheese on mine and DH's. Feta cheese for my son's.

So today is about moving past the blehs. Need to pick out something to take to Thursday morning stitching group. Something new? or a WIP? Will bring needlepoint peony just in case as working the background on this is pretty brainless. I've had to backtrack some on the compensation, but have managed to get it right so far.

What feelings of accomplishment will I get for getting off the computer now and doing some housework before I go? (That's a rhetorical question...)

If you get a sore throat today, you are in for it.

Don't think I wasn't thinking this!
'Cause I was.

Corn omelet sounds good! I should try it out and then make it for my boy. Think I can pull it off? Haha.

They got rid of ACCESS?? What are are they, NUTS?!?!? Tell them to put it back pronto or you will kill them and hide the body where no one will find it. I use FileMaker, but I can't imagine losing all my databases. I have dozens.
