An Update

My First Radish!

An Update…and stuff.

Where to begin?

* It looks like the other guy’s insurance agency has admitted 100% liability for the accident. (As I discovered when I called my company to talk to them today.) Yay!

* My car is currently estimated to be ready either Tuesday or Wednesday. Yay!

* I have produce in my garden. Now…I just need to think of what to do with all of that basil. (I have to harvest it this weekend. See picture below.) I have honest to goodness radishes. Yay!

* My week-long vacation starts tomorrow at 5:15pm. Yay!

* My friend D. from my old job stopped by my new work on Thursday on his way down to see his brother during his vacation. It was great to see him. (We chatted. He popped over to check out the children’s section…and answered a reference question. He ran away before he could accidentally work some more.) Yay!

* And I have a cold! Booo! Hiss! Sigh. That’s right. To add insult to injury, I have a cold. I also have no more sick leave. Add to this the fact that my shoulder, neck, and back are still not one would call…happy, and you can see how I might be annoyed. The other insurance company called, by the way. I left a message today, but they haven’t return the call yet. Before you ask, I am planning to see how my shoulder feels next week. If it hasn’t gotten better, I’m going to have it looked at. I will also not be signing anything until I am fully recovered. (So, don’t worry M. & L. I *was* listening to your excellent advice.)

I intend to ignore the cold as much as possible and enjoy my vacation. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Just letting you know I’m lurking. Loved the old book you’d written!

    And no, don’t muck around with the shoulder. Be aggressive; it sucks to have shoulder problems.

    Yay! So many YAYs!

    Well, except the cold…

    I’m very excited for you re: the basil and radish. That’s awesome!

    Hey. Very glad about the Automoblie/insurance stuff. :)
    And look who is still using the raised beds?? Very fabulous. Are those radish plants or weeds in the corners with the basil? I see black plastic. Please tell me that is not the engineering marvel (french drain)? Is that a monster rosemary plant in the back? Dang! you might want to give it a hearty trim so it doesn’t get too woody. And speaking of woody…
    Cute radish…good thing u plucked it then (re: small) I learned the hard way about waiting…they get larger, woody and taste very much of black pepper.
    Enjoy your time off.

    I’m glad to hear that you’re lurking, Susan. I’ll be calling to make a Doctor’s appointment very soon.

    I wish that I could send you some basil, Emma. I’ve got lots.

    Sister Mine, I’m so sad that the vacation is over. *sniffle* The drain is fine, I’m just killing weeds. I’m trying to grow garlic now.
