and that totally upset all the plans I had for the week. The telephone call was from the surgeons office and someone had cancelled their appointment for surgery on Tuesday and did I want the appointment. After a quick phone call to dh to see if he could drive me to and from hospital on Tuesday I accepted the appointment. So at 2pm today I will be having my right hand operated on. It only takes around half an hour, and I hope to be home by supper time.
Obviously I wasn't expecting this and it threw a bit of a monkey wrench into my plans for the day. As you know my dh is very talented when it comes to renovations but the one thing he can't and won't do is cook. So I pulled a few things out of the freezer and got busy making some meals.
Took me around 3 hours, but I got a bit done. Below are two shepherd's pies, a bowl of rice, a bowl of mashed potatoes. Two containers of liver, onion, mushrooms and bacon casserole, a lasagna and chicken and veggies in a mushroom Alfredo sauce. All in all there are around nine meals there for the two of us.
I also made a big pot of ham and leek soup with a couple of ham hocks. So probably another meal there and lunch for me for the week.
I must admit, I felt very blessed to be able to pull things out of the freezer and make enough meals to last more than a week in just a few hours.
As it's my right hand that is being operated on and I am right handed things won't be as easy to do. In theory I won't be able to drive for at least a couple of weeks, but I'll play that by ear. I will have my hand bandaged up for two weeks, and I haven't to do any heavy lifting for 6 weeks. So no snow blowing for me!!!
I am hoping after a couple of days though to be able to type and to try and comment on everyone's blog.
