Bad Air Quality and some Bloody Tales
This is the view from space of our smoky, hazy province. Yesterday and today both DH and myself have had dull headaches which we are fairly sure must come from breathing this bad,muggy air.
Some of you have asked if we have A/C. Yes, but only in the bedrooms so at least we all sleep well.
It hasn't been a particularly productive week so far. We filled the racks on the dehydrator with apples again. We were almost done when my DH put the safety guard of the mandolin aside and slid the last of the apples through. Yes, he sliced his thumb. I suggested he go to Emerg. but he thought he'd bleed to death in the waiting area before ever being seen by a doctor so I bandaged it up as well as I could. Had to redo the bandage 3 times in the first 15 minutes because it wouldn't stop bleeding but eventually it did. DH is one tough guy. He has had many an accident on the construction sites where he worked. Another time he drove himself to the doctor's office when he had a cut above his eye that required 26 stitches. The reason he didn't go to Emergency was that he knew our family doctor would see him immediately once he knew what had happened. Unfortunately that doctor has since died. They don't make them like that any more. Now you get sent to the ER and you wait...and wait...and wait.
Unless you say you think you may be having a heart attack. Then you get immediate attention.
Sorry. I didn't mean to ramble on but it's so nice and cool here in the bedroom ( my computer is in here).
In a short while daughter #2 is dropping by after work to visit and also to take some tomatoes off my hands. Better go and cut some Basil for her too.
Thanks for visiting,
