Cost Plus World Market Fun
For once it's not crazy hot. :) Yesterday, Sunday, actually almost felt a little bit like a fall day with rain and cooler air. Especially at night it was really nice. i think it was the first night in a long time where I was actually comfortable sleeping. Today has been pretty decent too and I think most of the week is supposed to be ok. Guess we will see.
Not much else new really. Last Tuesday I had the appointment at the orthopedist. All's well. They told me most likely what happened is that I popped out the joint in my ring finger and when it popped back in it chipped a part of the bone so that's where the hairline fracture came from. But it's nothing crazy. They told me to take the splint off and are having me try bending and using the finger again to try and get regular movement back. They did tell me that the swelling will probably take quite a while to completely go down. But I guess good enough for now.
This coming Saturday we have our follow appointment with Mindy. Hopefully all goes well and we can go back to a more normal routine without having to force medicine down her throat every day. She does seem to be acting much better, pretty much her normal self I'd say. So fingers crossed all checks out at the vet.
This past weekend we went to Rizzuto's in Westport on Saturday and on Sunday we drove up to West Hartford to go to the Cost Plus World Market there. I only very recently discovered that we have one of those stores only about 1 hour from us and it really got me excited. I always associate it with CA which is where the brand/chain originated. Anyway, it was a lot of browsing and picking up a bunch of random international goodies (tea, cookies/chocolates, little sausages, pickles, Austrian soda and more) What a cool store.
Not much on the horizon for this week. I am really wishing we could go on vacations. I know, I know. I am thankful that we are healthy and Connecticut is doing very well all things considered. But I miss real vacations, travel, airports, sightseeing, museums, hotel bars, ....
