Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Rainy Saturday

The MRI went okay. I definitely needed the sedative. I was put in to try it out and then I asked them to pull me back out. I was smart enough to close my eyes the next time I went in. I kept them closed, listened to music and let the drug float me away. Finally it was over and I went out to the waiting room. Erika and Jay had gone outside so I wandered to the bathroom myself and spent ten minutes putting my belly button ring back in. That was fun. Jay found me outside wandering around the parking lot. They took me home and we waited for Jeff and Isabelle to arrive. Erika took me to pick up Keegan. It was wearing off but I felt really tired. We all had pizza and wings for supper together. I don't remember alot of details about yesterday which I hate. But I remember them when someone reminds me. It was lousy timing because I should have been there to support Erika and Jay instead of them having to look after me.

I woke up this morning good as new. And after a slight delay Angie's plane arrived and we went to grab lunch. She and Keegan are taking naps now. I really should be too but I keep finding things that need to be done. Or they feel like they do. Like updating my online calendar for the next year. Or downloading all of the pictures off of my camera.
Oh yeah I picked up new ring yesterday. We used eleven of my own diamonds and added four sapphires. It has sort of a wave design so it adds a little interest. The designer and I were on the same page with what I wanted. I will just keep my center stone unmounted and Keegan can have it later in life. See a picture below. In the picture it is on my left hand so I could use my right to hold the camera. But I am wearing it on my right every day.
