@jakedduck1 Since there are so many things my diet has to limit, it is easier to cook at home most of the time. Really, my cooking is simple, nothing fancy for this gal.

@lioness I rarely eat red meat, preferring chicken or turkey. But I figured I would give in and do a pot roast because I do like the smell of it cooking. Just found out my stepson is coming by on his Long Haul Trucking route tonight, so I have to figure something to fix once I get back from my appointments. Maybe I'll fix reservations at a restaurant. LOL
@parus I truly think some polls change stats around to make things favorable to what they want portrayed. Anywhere you look, you'll find happy and unhappy people. Someone can be happy in one respect, miserable in another, it is so subjective. BTW the pot roast turned out great!
@jakedduck1 California is technically a desert. Not sure what the prediction is today, but at this point, any rain bears multi-sided blessings. Rain is desperately needed due to drought conditions that have existed for many years. Meanwhile, there are burn scars from recent fires. Rain falling on those areas create mudslides and debris flow which can bring more property destruction and closed roads. Up in the hills we have snow. Great for the ski areas, not so great for Interstate 5 that was closed for part of yesterday. Silly drivers on the road at any day or time but give them less than perfect conditions and watch out! The rain in Death Valley may or may not create Super Bloom of wildflowers this spring.
Today I am grateful that my primary care doctor moved my appt from late this afternoon to first thing this morning! That means that I will not have to be out in the heavy rains that are expected later on today. We have had several days of on and on rain with more coming today and tomorrow. The local ski resorts are ecstatic.
@edwinswife Welcome to Mayo Connect. I am truly sorry for your loss. It sounds like you and Edwin had a beautiful relationship. Your transplant team will be able to give you some additional input on the thank you letter, and usually has specific guidelines. Let me make a couple of suggestions. A letter does not have to be long, so as you read and reread it, you will probably find things that may repeat, that can be trimmed down. They advise there should be no names used, as everything is anonymous. When you are finished, your team will take the letter you give them, in an unsealed envelope. Whether or not the donor family responds to you, please know that it does you good to have done the letter. My husband wrote a letter to his donor family after his kidney transplant, but has not heard from them.
