Here I am in bed again because that tender area on my bottom is telling me, "ENOUGH! Get off your butt!" (This past week I've spent a few too many hours sitting up and now I must give myself "time off.")  I'm proud of myself for listening to what my body is telling me.

 

Unfortunately, I'm also listening to the roofers put a new roof on our house. The incessant pounding has been going on since 8:30 this morning...
