drank Decaffeinated Black Tea by Red Rose
2089 tasting notes

Cortisone shot in a shoulder with a messed up rotator cuff. Doc said a possible side effect might be a little insomnia tonight. Right now, I’m so beat, I can’t see how that can possibly be an issue…but as a precaution, I’ve been off caffeine all afternoon.

Sun tea’d a quart of this poor, undervalued, unloved bagged baby with a generous helping of sprigs from our applemint plant. (Me. Not killing plants. People who know me should be laughing in disbelief by now :) It was absolutely fine.

I knew you could do it!

ah, I hope it helps. I want some cortisone shots with my shoulder problems but Dr says none until August at the earliest.

K S … we think the magic is the pots. Stuff we put in our ground is doomed. I have a flower bed by the front sidewalk that kills marigolds and zinnias.

TB…insomnia confirmed, but typical morning pain wasn’t there. It’s a temporary fix; I need to pretend I’m an invalid for a couple of weeks to promote healing. Life without shoulders the weekend we move elderly dad back to the farm. Ought to be interesting :)

Oh, no! I am sorry! Rest, and baby that sore spot. I had a cortisone shot once. I wrote outlandish, horrible expensive-to-implement business proposals for my boss (thank goodness, I never gave them to him) and ate EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!!!!

Dr. didn’t recommend a sling, but it is hard not to instinctively use it. (I’m a lefty, but do most “chores” right handed.) Have moved mouse to left side and am propping with a pillow at my work desk. We’ll see how that works.

I’m a lefty too. I also do many things right handed. My wife had surgery on both shoulders (different times) for torn rotator cuff. Cortisone did not help her at all. Hoping better for you but with what you have going on at the moment that sounds not so likely. Sorry for the pain. If it is any consolation my wife recovered very quickly both times after surgery. As for the ground – hey that’s what happens when you build over a nuclear dump site ;)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
