got a letter day before yesterday from the hospital telling that my surgery is scheduled on march 12th!!!!!! after first being told that the waiting line is 6 months, then being told that it would probably take place sometime late march, early april, i'm ecstatic that it it's happening this soon.
there was a zillion things to plan and think about and i'm not a person to figure out plans up to D if i don't know even the approximate details or dates. i just plain won't plan anything, feel it's a waste of time and energy (could be that i'm just lazy...). had some leave scheduled in mid-march but was told yesterday that can be moved ahead so that i can have my leave before the surgery. now i can get a move on things that have been "waiting for the day" (like the pile of clothing going to salvation army).
also, i had a trip planned in mid-april, it seems i get to go as the first cast will be removed by then and the second cast will be considerably smaller and lighter. not sure what'll happen with rehab that was supposed to be the last week of march. there are good things going on, gotta be careful not to jinx it...
this morning, as a celebratory breakfast, made american pancakes for us (certain someone was home as he got his H1N1-shot yesterday and was feeling poorly). not sure where i got the original recipe (probably martha's) but over time it's become quite streamlined, this serves us two
1½ cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
½ tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 dl sour cream
1 dl milk
2 tbsp melted butter
first mix the dry indredients, then add the wet, mix but stop when still slightly lumpy. you might have to add ½ dl milk if the batter looks too stiff. as i use non-stick pan i don't use any butter for frying, pan on medium-low heat. usually start by putting the pan on stove to warm, by the time batter is done, pan is heated and ready to go
on the very same day that i read isle dance's entry on goji-berries, got to taste some that a colleague brought to work. went and bought some myself and brought a bag to the shack as well. certain someone has picked up a habit and is using the berries in everything. i mean everything, it's a bad picture, but you get the idea. personally, i think the you'd need much more berries to counter-effect the amount of butter he puts on his pancakes...
ps. we're getting more snow... where will it all go when spring comes? spring will come, right?
