Ahhh...I return from the wonderful lavender fields of Sequim, WA. You can scroll through the pictures at the left if you're into that sort of thing...vacation voyeurism!
I had a very nice and needed break in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains on the Washington State peninsula. Good weather, good food, good friend, good time. I returned to Seattle just in time to begin my pre-op preparation for my colonoscopy early tomorrow morning...that's right...the "colon blow"!
I know the purpose of the "colon blow". It's so the Gut Doctor can have a "clear and clean" picture of my innards. But why on earth does it (my colon) have to be THAT clean?!? And the taste of the gunk one drinks before a colonoscopy...Ugh! No wonder my gut works so quickly and furiously to get rid of that stuff...it's just down right nasty!
So, I'm sticking close to home today...actually more closely to my toilet...and trying to maintain my "calm" I achieved while strolling through the lavender fields. If I close my eyes, I can still feel the sun and smell the fabulous scent of the lavenders and flowers...it sure beats the smells of my bathroom right now!
Wish me luck with my pipe cleaning tomorrow...gotta go...literally.
