Today is my last day to be 58. When I wake tomorrow morning, I will have turned 59 and will be on my way to the big 60. This is the year I said I would bike 30 miles in one day. This is the year I swore I would give up one more bad habit. This is the year I declared I would move into the slow lane and enjoy the scenery and the moment more. Sounds like I need a plan!
This was the amazing supper that my personal chef, my honey, fixed us last night. It is called a Tropical Spinach Salad w/Fresh Basil Vinaigrette dressing. I love it when we eat fresh and healthy. The best part is the goat cheese...so rich and creamy and, my personal favorite fruit, raspberries!
We were up bright and early and off to what I call the Vampire Clinic. I had to have blood drawn to try to find out what is up with my left kidney. The dr. kept talking about kidney stones which everyone tells me passing are worse than child birth. This will be a relief to me to find out that is all that is wrong. My mother's cancer started in her kidney. Best case scenerio is an infections. The gal who drew my blood is my new heroine. I have "floating veins" and they are small so hard to get the needle in easily. I ususally either get light headed and pass out or throw up afterwards with all the prodding etc. This wonderful woman just slid the needle in, drew the blood and done. All the while E was holding my hand and chatting away a mile a minute to distract me. The blood gal was great.
Off to eat...I had to fast for ten hours for the blood work and I am starving.
