Banana bread, warm and moist, fresh from the oven, slathered with butter and zesty Lemon pound cake topped with sugary crackled goodness. I was hungry and these two fresh-baked treats wafted into my mind as I was trying to fall asleep last night.
Speaking of sleep, it appears that the greatest beneficial aspect of my severe back pain this week is that I have finally been able to sleep and sleep soundly. Wahoo! Hmm... I may have to start working on the things that make me say wahoo. And... I walked considerably farther today, thankfully making pitstops in places where I could lean on counters... and on my way back, stopped in at the pharmacy... After a long chat with a friend who works there, I ended up not purchasing drugs to alleviate the pain. I am hoping that yesterday was the worst of it. As I sit here typing, I feel I might regret that decision, but... time at a turtle's pace will tell.
