Today's Treadmill: 43 minutes/3.3km/103 cal...I seem to be caught in work-out-OCD. I planned to walk 40 minutes, but couldn't stop because I was just under 3 kilometers AND just under 100 calories AND the song I was listening to was still playing when I hit 40 minutes, so I had to round everything off.

Later, walked into the kitchen and found FIVE wasps in various states of upset against the kitchen windows. I am the catch-and-release queen.

My nephew is ill in the hospital with an acute kidney infection AND the flu. Feel awful for the little guy. They are doing tests to see if the valves are functioning correctly and if not, he may have to have surgery to correct that, IF the kidney, which has severe scarring, is even functioning at all...and it not, he may have to have surgery to remove it completely. He's missed the first day (and week) of school and my sister, who is staying at the hospital with him, is sick, too. WISHING some good news and GOOD health to them.

Update: He's been discharged today after testing, which showed that there is definitely a valve problem, and they've gotten the infection under control. He has to go back on Tuesday for a renal scan to determine how much kidney function he actually has.


It's such a gorgeous day today that I really need to get outside. I shall go out in the sunshine and finish my book.


Much later. I didn't lie on the trampoline. Instead I pulled one of the lounge chairs out of the garage and set it up under the sun umbrella on the deck and sat and read. Every so often I raised my head and lowered my book and thought about going inside to get the camera so I could make some short films of the beautiful weather and the peaceful sound of ravens cawing and butterflies flitting and bumblebees buzzing and the breeze in the trees, but I couldn't be bothered to actually get up and do it.

What a lovely, lovely relaxing day. I can't get enough of days like this. Is it even possible?

yay for lovely days :)

i hope your nephew is alright!

He's okay for now, but it sounds like he's got a long slog ahead :(

We took a spur-of-the-moment drive to Skånes Djurpark and partway there we said, almost simultaneously "Oh damn! We forgot the kids!"

hahahaha! They weren't home until after 3 anyway; they were at a scout thing with Anders. :) but it was up in Höör, too!

I'm so sorry to hear about your nephew! Please keep us updated about how he's doing. I hope this is a problem that's easily fixed!

The first part is, but the second part is a little more problematic :(

Your poor nephew, I hope they patch him up soon. I'm wondering if he has the same issue my friend's daughter had, they operated and she's been fine. For them, it was something that ultrasound picked up when she has recurrent urinary tract infections. That's scary for your nephew that he's got scarring, let's hope the scan shows minimal damage.

Oh and I hear you on the relaxing day! Yours sounds divine.

His sister is being tested too, as apparently it runs in siblings. :(

Ok then this is exactly what my friend's daughter had. Turns out my friend's mom had the same surgery when she was little and they've checked the other kids and they're fine. I hope the sister is negative.

"I can't get enough of days like this."

Oh, I'm glad you didn't get up and get the camera, and then get sidetracked by something else inside, etc, etc... Way to go, not being bothered. Of course WE would have liked to see all that loveliness, but it was YOUR relaxing day.
Many more of them to you. Oh, and catch it while you can. I feel fall in the morning air already. Eeek!

I hope all goes well with you nephew. Keep us posted.

Hope your nephew is hanging in there. How scary! We had a couple of gorgeous days as well, but today we woke up to thunderstorms...and three kids in our bed plus one shaking dog. It is still gloomy and humid, so we may be in for a long day. Today each kid has a friend over, so I may have six scared kids and one dog to deal with.... Safety in numbers I guess!

workout OCD

I know this won't surprise you, but I am definitely guilty of "workout OCD" too. :-) I hope your nephew is better soon.

Re: workout OCD

hahaha! Doesn't surprise me in the least! :) I did it again last night, too. Doh.
