Much as I love my Everlast leggings and long sleeved tee, it was time to get out of bed, wash my hair and put on some proper clothes.
I suppose an update is in order, as you've all been so kind and supportive over this bloody tooth surgery. Aside from the extreme vertigo, I was managing-then, I wasn't. Around the fourth day post-surgery I developed what is probably a dry socket (I'll see the dentist this week to have that confirmed). As I'm having such terrible vertigo, I can't take anything narcotic for the pain which means trying to manage with Diclofenac and Acetaminophen. Fun times. I'll survive of course, but I'm not going to attempt being cheerful about it. It almost feels like the bone and nerve in my jaw is exposed...because it is. I can't drive anywhere, but attended by my two trusty companions I can hobble about a bit. Distraction helps.
It was raining/misting when we took these photos. Moments after, I noticed Mr. ETB had left the window down in the car. It rained all last evening. Yeah. On the positive side, we can now take the car for detailing as a necessity. It really did need a good cleaning out anyway.

Lippy-Oh gosh, this is embarrassing. I bought a set of lip crayons at Walgreens because the packaging was shaped like bunnies. Pathetic, I know. They're very strawberry scented too...because they were probably intended for six year olds playing dress-up. Yeah, I'll get pictures of the tubes when I remember.
That's a flicker. They're woodpeckers.

Check out the lovely garden behind me in the photo. That's our neighbours who decided to join-in planting out vegetables in front of the house. They won't need to water the plants this week. They will, however need to cover them tonight as we have a frost warning. Let that sink in. A frost warning for 1 May. Sigh.
I'm going to leave this on a happy note-my boots and bag match! How bad can things be?
Have a Happy May Day.
