Sunday Happiness

1. Fiesta has pinwheel party sandwiches. Salmon, egg salad, and a ham and cheese I've only heard about. 'They went in about five minutes,' says the cashier.

2. I have pâté! and gherkins! and tiny pickled onions! (which ought to be sweet and aren't, but OK). And olives and avocado and camembert and crackers and rye bread. IOW, I have canapés to go with my Johnson cocktail, yum.

3. (the biggie) Walking in boots is agony for my left knee. In shoes my knee will sometimes pang and pump and do the '100 volt jolt to the kneecap' routine, but it's inevitable in boots. I ponder the cause. Certainly my shoes are tighter, but it was to avoid tightness that I got these boots, after my old lace-ups trashed every tendon in my lower leg. Still, maybe feet need more support? I still have that size-down pair of Toe Warmers sitting on my shoe rack. Try using the left one of that with the half-length orthopedic, and the X-wide right with my usual orthopedic, and venture out into the snow.

Huzzah! Barely a twinge, even though I slip and slide in the slush. Thank you thank you thank you, Toe Warmers!

(This is all the more necessary as my doctor departed on vacation without filling my pain meds prescription. Have been taking one or two a day instead of the usual four or five. Conclusion: prescription meds are not as necessary as when I had Baker's cyst. They're still a lot easier on the stomach than Tylenol.)
