Things are hopping here.
Everything's hopping, except for JB who has to be lying down on the job, at some point (see below!). We anticipated rain, but we continue to be the stone in the river. We had only 0.7 mm. The rain goes all around us! We haven't planned much outdoors!
😷PROCESS OF MANAGING PROSTATE CANCER PART CIV – Last minute Bone Density Scan #7 Wed., Dec. 7th. (Appointment #104 – if you are counting.)
They are backed up for a year at our local hospital, 15 minutes away, and he was supposed to have one in October. The tests are only valid for 6 months, we've been told. It is a snapshot in time of the bone mineral density. His bones are deteriorating, with his cancer treatments. They had a cancellation in Smiths Falls, and he was good to go.
Thing is, the woman who called Monday to book the appointment said it was Tuesday, but the automatic reminder voice phoned and told us it was Wednesday, Dec. 7th. I don't know if I misheard, or she misspoke. Whatever. Fortunately, I'm not fired as a personal assistant.
I phoned again, left a message, but they didn't phone back. JB went anyway, just in case. They don't work on Tuesdays. Sigh. His appointment is Wednesday. Today. Happily he can go one his own, I don't have to drive him. Unlike driving into the city!
|Bone Scan #2 (Fri. Sept. 19, 2014) Here he is in 2014.|
🥀 I am working on a planter design for my amaryllis. I've had some pretty flowers in the past, which I've put outdoors in summer. This one was a challenge. I had to tie it to the chair to keep it standing.
I ordered paperwhites, as well. In 2018, I put paperwhites in the rabbit. I've been looking for said rabbit planter, but I vaguely remember breaking it. Ain't old age grand?!
You'll notice they get fairly tall. I read that you can slow down the growth by watering it 1:7 cheap vodka to water. I think not! That, and the fact that you cannot regrow them. I tried. It is a lost cause.
I might go buy some smooth river stones. I ordered two bulbs. One bulb arrived and it is beginning to put out a bud. I best hurry. Maybe I should just buy some potting soil.This is the amaryllis that arrived first. You can see it is ready to go. I filled a punch bowl with rocks, and then some marble eggs. You are supposed to keep it in the dark until the roots are strong enough. We shall see. In the meantime, I'm growing a liquor bottle!
