The coffee is freshly brewed and the water is hot. Plenty of Sara's cookies still left to share.

It's a TGIF morning in Inspirations. Y'all be sure to share some (inspirations, that is, not Sara's cookies).

Anybody have any info on the Survivor? He's one tough nut but pain hurts.

Anyway, coffee's ready for drinking and there's hot water for the tea and coco crowd. Add in a few of Sara's cookies and you got a snack to be savored.

Damn, Sara hasn't been in, yet. * checks cookies jars and scarfs last lemon bar *

How's things? Wrote a battle scene set in the milieu of "Night of the Wind". In fact, it's a flashback to Dev's past that will likely be part of a new story about him. We shall see. IOW, I am writing and things may be coming.

Lovely day here, which was unexpected. They were originally calling for us to get a week of showers and rain.

A large sweet tea is prefect for this beautiful sunshine day

Todays cookies are sugar cookies with pretty sprinkles shaped like palm trees.sunglasses.ice cream cones.cupcakes and sunbursts. They are diabetic friendly too

Thank you, everyone, for your kind words and thoughts. My Mom is doing well and the rest of my family is healthy. I really can't ask for more right now.

Larry, I hope you are feeling better.

Sare, the cookies all sound delicious.

The weather here is beautiful today except for the high pollen counts. I was going to go out but since I am sneezing I don't want to alarm other people.

I've been cooking and baking a lot. I have a new favorite cookbook author, Tieghan Gerard. Half-Baked Harvest is the name of her latest cookbook. I followed her on Instagram first and have not had one recipe that didn't turn out well.

Tonight it was Roasted Lemon Artichoke and Brown Butter Pasta.

I hope everyone is healthy and safe tonight.

I'll take a few cookies and have a lemonade.

Cheers.

Some of my stuff.

Last week somehow got really busy, so I'm just catching up with everyone's news. Hugs to you, Gill!

Larry, so sorry to hear about your trip to the hospital. I do hope they are getting to the bottom of the symptoms and most importantly, the pain levels are being dealt with. Hugs to you too!

Sara, I hope your writer's block eases soon and Scott, glad you are writing!

Hi to Elizabeth and Bill and anyone I've missed! I'll grab a coffee and one of Sara's wonderful cookies.

It's Saturday, there's hot coffee and cookies and I've finished moving if not settling in. Y'all keep Larry in your thoughts and prayers. These days just about everybody needs some good vibes sent their way, just ask Gill, but try to save a few for our, Survivor.

Glad you are moved, but I'm sure it will take a wee while to get settled in. Hope your wife is doing well.

Sara, those cookies sound so delicious I'll think I'll have one of each with my lemon and ginger tea.

My oncologist called me on Friday to find out how I was doing. From what I understand when a person gets this condition, which presents as edema (a swelling) in the pelvic region, the only thing to do is find a level of pain medications to manage the pain. The pain is in the mesentery of the adjacent bowel loops. I keep thinking I have found the appropriate pain meds and then it stops working. I will send her another message on Monday to discuss my health.

It usually lasts for a week, so if I am lucky it will get better by Tuesday.

I will try to keep on getting on. Whistle

All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

Larry, this is just my humble opinion, but have you considered giving up constant pain as your hobby of choice? ;)

Coffee's ready for consumption and the tea kettle is full of hot water for the tea and coco crowd. Best I can tell, a representative sampling of Sara's most excellent cookies are available.

Y'all do the best you know how.

Hi, folks. It is incredibly hard to explain what is going on in one's body without using medical terms. Just as anyone does I look up each term for the definition and then try to work out what I can do about it.

As I have tried to explain here in the coffeehouse the radiologist has found edema (swelling) on the mesentery which is an organ that attaches to the small intestine and the wall of the abdomen. It is clear that the only treatment for having pain in this organ, presumably caused by the swelling, is pain medication. And this condition seems to last about a week. So we will discuss it again tomorrow, see if there are better pain meds available.

People always want to get a good solution to the problem. My fear is that there is no cure. I will perhaps learn to live with it and moderate it.

Now it is time for some freshly made coffee.

Ugh. Hate those conditions where the only solution is "relieve symptoms and wait". Take care and hope you and your doc can work something out.

Nice day here. Just relaxing and doing some admin work on the board where I am part of the "staff". The link is on my profile, I think, and my profile there links to here. There's some folks there who like my writing.

Tea and some cookies. I'll be over here by the fire.

Of course the folks like your writing. No surprise to me. I am happy you have hooked them up here.

I am so upset with the horror of mass shooting has become part of your country. Very sorry. Thank goodness there is a chance of getting rid of automatic weapons in your legislature.

Not much going on here. A quiet day here just hanging out watching Netflix.

My neighbor left me a present on the doorstep (soup and crackers) then my friend Jolene stopped by with Pepsi and chocolate.
So its been a busy day. Hoping to get some writing done.

I have cookies (better late than never)
In Big Bird we have :peanut butter blossoms, cinnamon stars, almond joy cookies and lemon ginger cookies
In Cookie Monster we have :chocolate pecan bar cookies, honey drop cookies, lemon ginger cookies and peanut butter blossoms

It's another Monday Mourning. While that is a major drag, on the good news side are the cookies Sara dropped off yesterday (I'm anxious to try those Almond Joy ones) and there's fresh coffee and hot water for the tea and coco crowd.

Keep the old Survivor in your thoughts, prayers, meditations'good vibe' teleportation,, absent-minded musing, etc..

Later fellow Inspirators.

Hey everyone! I hope the big birthday boy didn't eat all the cake.

Me and Daisy will eat what's left.




Nothing much happening around here, just the snow melting. Still no chicken or BEEF in the stores.
But as long as we all stay safe. I brought the ice cream Daisy. It's Peep flavored.

Has anyone else noticed at Cinco de Mayo (May 5' is occurring on a 'Taco Tuesday'? I'm beginning to think Larry may have some serious 'pull' in certain places. ;)

Back in the 'no-pull' world that is, Inspirations, the coffee is ready and downright drinkable, if I do say so myself. Water for the tea and coco crowd is hot to trot, so to speak.

Later, amigos.

Greetings fellow Inspirations 'Spacers'. An alternative handle for Sara mightb, Cookie Cutie. Just a thought.

Fresh coffee, along with hot water (for our tea sippers) are now available as are Sara's super cookies. Enjoy.

The past two weeks have been bizarre. It started with that incredible pain in my pelvic area. Doctors determined it was pain from edema in a mesentery. That was a major problem that finally ended this Tuesday or Wednesday. In the meantime, other physical aches and pains decided to jump in and play as well. Along with several things that need a doctor's attention. I will see a doctor now on Monday, the 11th. I'm simply trying to get it all settled down.

I'm now switching to tea for a while.

Morning to all who enter seeking inspiration but settle for coffee and cookies.

It's both TGIF and V-E Day (Victory in Europe) so the ingestion of vast quanties of coffee, tea, or Sara's cookies is highly recommended.

Larry, take care of your fool self.

I'll grab a lemon and ginger tea.
