The pain was expected....just hard to deal with.
Yesterday I harvested 3 large heads of cabbage and tomatoes
from the garden. With them I made a big roaster of stuffed
cabbage. The lifting of the cabbage from the pot of boiling water,
the mixing of the meat mixture ( 8lbs ) of it did a number on my
joints and muscles. My whole upper body...back, shoulders,
arm and fingers are screaming in pain. I didn't sleep well
at all last night. If I moved the pain woke me up. I ended up
in a hot tub of water at 2am. Just kept putting a hot towel
on my back and arms. I sat and soaked my hands for quite
some time. I took the laptop into the bathroom and watched
some Hulu. The 45 minute soaked helped. I need another one.
The roaster is in the fridge now. Today I will be bagging the
stuffed cabbage and off to the freezer it will go. I tried one
last night....I never put enough salt in the mixture. I added
extra and still needs more. Oh well its quite healthy. There
was hardly any grease laying on the top of the roaster. I
thought I had used 93% lean....I looked again....It was 97%
lean. I should have known that. I only but the 97% lean.
Nothing upsets me more that paying for something and
watch it float in a pan...to be thrown out.
Its another beautiful day outside. Love the cooler temps
51 degrees in the mornings. Reminds me of the days we
went camping as kids. Bob is coming home today. He
has Fridays off. Its nice that he is coming home at a
reasonable hour this morning. He has been known to
come home as late as 1pm on Fridays.
Well this is all for today. I need to wrap up in a warm
blanket to help rid myself of the pain.
God Bless to all!
