Friday:) Final Vaccine with Allen FD, Friends, and Lenten Food

**************************

Well, I received my second Covid vaccine this morning. I was a little bit nervous with a queasy stomach, not that I’m afraid of shots and needles, but I’ve heard some scary second vaccine stories. My knight in shining armor, AKA Sid, was kind enough to drive me to my appointment again, so I didn’t have to worry about getting lost coupled with getting sick. The process was quick and smooth, well organized.

Even though Allen FD administered the vaccines, I wore my lucky
McKinney FD T-shirt. Firefighters are awesome!

After I got home, my friend Helene asked if she could stop over and bring me some homage bread, made by her neighbor Elizabeth. Yum. We talked a while, then I got a call from my other friends Joni and Bob. Speaking of friends, they ordered some FRIENDS T-shirts for me and Helene, so we can wear them if and when we ever get a chance to meet in a group again. Most of us have had our vaccines, so hopefully it will be sooner than later.

Time to think what to make for dinner on a Friday in Lent when one is Catholic. Well, more of my cabbage, broccoli, onion medley mixed with a can of cream of mushroom soup and a can of black beans. Oh, and some of Helene’s fresh bread.

Pretty good, the only bad part… enough leftover for a couple of more days. I’ll never empty out that freezer and fridge. 🤦‍♀️

So now, it must be Black Russian Friday. My left arm is a bit sore, I’ll have to admit, but I’m hoping the alcohol and ice cream will mask the pain. (I looked it up, so far no interaction with alcohol and vaccine. Thank goodness!)

Cheers!!!!

    Hi Miss Toni!

    Glad to hear you got the second shot! (My parents got their second Pfizer shot this week with no side effects! Joe and I got our first Moderna shot this week with no side effects except sore arm.) My Cousin got his two Moderna shots. He had no reaction to the first shot, and he thought it would be the same after the second shot. He was feeling great the next day so he went to drive to the store. When it hit him, he wasn’t sure he would be able to drive home cause he got dizzy, etc. He’s fine now. Moral of the story- be sure to take it easy for a couple days. They also say to drink lots of water.

    Love and hugs!
