It's nice that Friday is here. I don't even care that it is supposed to rain ALL day (it hasn't started yet). I've been getting texts and emails about possible flooding. We shall see. No rain yet.
This has been one of those weeks that has felt long and has felt as though I really haven't accomplished much. I think the heat and humidity have gotten to me. There hasn't been much knitting. A little stitching (not quite as hot as knitting), but not much.
I've also been bothered by a rather large (huge!!) rash on my stomach. I was finally able to get an in-person appointment yesterday and I am now on antibiotics for Lyme Disease! Mind you, I have not had a blood test or anything like that, but the drugs can't hurt me and better safe than sorry. Both the nurse practitioner and the doctor immediately said LYME when they saw my stomach. Fortunately I've had no symptoms like fevers or joint pain. Colin contracted Lyme disease a decade or so ago when he was in college. It took forever for him to be diagnosed and he had severe joint pain and had tons of fluid drained off his left knee a number of times. Hopefully starting the antibiotics now I will be fine. Of course, I also have to stay out of the sun while taking the pills. It's a 21 day supply, so I probalby won't go walking for a bit.
On a more pleasant note, I have done some cooking and the other night we had curried vegetables for dinner.
This was so good with peppers, onions, brocolli, cauliflower, tomatoes, carrots, eggplant, garlic & ginger. I didn't add any meat to it, but chicken or shrimp would be a good addition.
And we have eggplants growing!! We have the plants in a pot on our patio, next to my rosemary. These little guys are noticeably longer each morning!
I love grilling or broiling eggplant slices and then putting them on pizza. Yum!
No real plans for the weekend. It is supposed to be stupid hot and humid, so we will most likely lay low. Hope you all have a wonderful one!
