Good morning! Tmep dropped 25 degrees overnight. Ow ow ow. My arm plate is a very good barometer. Ow ow ow.
And on that note, the rain is gone, the temp is down, and my sleep was ... Wait, did I sleep? Hmm.
But the pollen is washed away! Yay! No more kitty sneezes! (Dahlia has allergies.)
How goes teh weather in your area? Good, bad, fibro-friendly?
if Netflix seems slow to you... It is. They had to slow down their streaming rate b/c so many people are home watching Netflix. This isn't affecting me yet, but I'm watching DVDs, LOL!
So, what do you do with a guy like Thomas Cranmer? Back in 1556, this Protestant Christian reformer of England ran afoul of Mary I of England (Bloody Mary), b/c he'd helped argue the divorce between her mum and Henry VIII... Devoutly Catholic but not necessarily a very nice or sane person, Mary took the throne after her little brother Edward died (Ed 6, to be exact).

Remember to self-care! It's the top recommendation of many in treating fibromyalgia, altho' really, that is true of anything... SELF-CARE! Go soak your feet and read a book, or pet a pet, or stare at fluffy clouds, or whatever is available, but SELF-CARE!
Hugs for the weekend!
Good morning from the Cranky Cat! Oh, I woke up on the wrong side of every bed ever. Just... tha tkind of morning after too long since decent sleep and solid food. (Back t solid food now, yay!) Anyway, not aided by coming downstairs to discover a certain spouse of mine (and I only have one, mind you) left the counter covered in dirty dishes b/c ---- it's not his job to put away clean ones, and as...
