After a scary lightening storm which knocked the power out for four hours, I walked (hobbled) out on the porch to see if any more thunderheads were around.
The clouds in the sky looked amazing. These looked like mammatus clouds that were lagging behind the main storm. Not quite as intense and beautiful as these were, but it was a gorgeous sky nonetheless.
My leg is healing, and the pain has eased off so that I can now get around without that horrible boot.
Being mostly off my feet and completely bored, I've watched entirely too much television. I spent two weeks giving everyone constructive criticism during the two conventions.
I've also gained ten pounds because my daily step count went from 18500+ to below 3000. It definitely could not possibly be all the extra food I've eaten, due to aforementioned inactivity and boredom.
I've finished one bible study and started another. The new one is fantastic so far: Having a Mary heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver. I highly recommend it.
Katie has been an excellent study buddy.
My intolerance test finally arrived. Lisa from Two Bears Farm told me about her experience with it and I decided it was worth a try. It looks like I am intolerant to wheat, rice and corn, and also to milk products. (Which takes all the fun out of breads and ice cream..boo hiss!) I don't know if that means I am gluten intolerant, but I am going to ask my doctor. It would explain some of my health issues- maybe. One interesting intolerance: CATS! Katie didn't look too upset or concerned about it when I told her. She just shrugged, stretched and rolled back into her nap position. Well, alrighty then.
