Morning Coffee Time #56.

Good morning to all of you on this beautiful Thursday! The coffee is ready, so grab a cup and relax with us for a few minutes. It’s cloudy this morning with light snow, but a mild temperature of 15F (-9C) and heading up to 28F (-2C) for a high today. Unfortunately due to the melting for those 3 days this week, and now back to freezing temps, that snow has frozen hard as ice, and just as slippery. And with this little bit of light snow on top it will be treacherous walking out there. I just can’t imagine walking my path to the river right now, especially with those two big hills back there. They will be two big icy slides which will make them impossible going either direction. That’s bad. It means not being able to use the path until it warms up again. That could take awhile.

Portulaca.

However, if we were to get about 6 inches (15cm) of new snow, then it would make the path safe to walk again. So there we have it, warm weather or new snow. Oh well, whatever we get we will get. But it’s probably best to stay off that path for awhile at least. Muffin meows thanks for all the nice wished for her recovery, and she is feeling fine again. Must have been something she ate. And yesterday I had my appointment with the oral surgeon about my tooth. I had that pain in my tooth for 26 days (but who’s counting?), the longest I have ever had a toothache and hopefully it will never happen again. I was close to collapsing from lack of sleep, and that’s the truth, not to mention the fact I wasn’t eating properly. I lost 8 pounds this month, and believe me I didn’t need to lose any. Oh well.

Back to the surgeon. He was very nice and had the tooth out amazingly fast. Whatever he gave me for the pain numbed half my head for 6 hours but it still hurt (a lot) when he pulled it. But it was over with quickly. Then he gives me his cell phone number in case there was any problems last night. I wasn’t sure if I felt good about that or not. I didn’t want problems. And there wasn’t any. However, there is still pain this morning which he said will stick around for a couple days. But I finally slept good last night, and that was sure nice. All the birds are here this morning, except for the evening grosbeaks, but it is a bit early for them anyway. Enjoy the bright and cheery flowers, have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • Oh yes, lots of sunshine on Mars, but it never gets warm, not even right in the sun. Sigh. Need special houses to live in, indoor gardens for food. Hmm, I wonder how they’ll get meat up there? Send animals? Don’t think that will work too good. First thing to do is grow potatoes for french fries!!๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸAnd bring lots and lots of coffee!!๐Ÿ˜‹โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜น

    • Yes, it’s too slippery to go walking right now, but it’s supposed to be warmer again tomorrow, so maybe another walk can be done before it freezes again.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜บโ˜•โ˜•๐ŸŒž

      • Oh my…a whole hour, how horrible. My dentist told me mine would take fifteen mins. I was so stressed and uncomfortable when he opened my mouth. I tried making a sound to let him know I could not stay like that for 15 mins. When he released his grip a few seconds later and I could finally speak, he was telling his assistant what to do, for the after care. I was shocked to know the tooth was already out. I guess he meant the full procedure from the time I entered his office till the time I left was about 15 mins.

      • It wasn’t easy keeping my mouth open for an hour, but I did get 3 5 minute breaks, not sure if that was for me or my dentist! That was one stubborn tooth. Oh well, I’m sure glad this one didn’t take that long.

  3. Hi Steve! So glad you are on the mend. That is a very long time to be dealing with that level of pain. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ I will check in once a week due a crazy work volume and a big project. Will catch up on your Investigatorโ€™s series on Saturday. You and Muffin stay safe and warm! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒž
