April Fools Day, how many dentists does it take to fix a toothache.
No joke folks, this week has been quite the ordeal for Steven. A while back he went in to get his checkup at the dentist. Was told that he had a cavity in a tooth that needed a crown. No problem, we call the laser dentist to put the crown on and he does the crown, but notices that the tooth above the new crown is the tooth giving Steven the pain. After checking it out more, sends him over to the root canal dentist and he gets a root canal to permanently fix the problem. After getting a shot of Novocaine, Steven is still in pain, dentist looks around more and tells him that the tooth next to the crowned tooth earlier-repaired is failing and will need to be repaired. So one crown and one root canal done and waiting for the third tooth to get fixed and still in pain.
What a drag!!!
He was given instructions to use Tylenol and Ibuprofen for the pain. It don’t work, now he can’t sleep and the only relief comes from up and moving around, must be a blood flow thing. Whenever he sits still for any length of time the pain comes back big-time. Perhaps another root canal on Monday will fix it.
Spring fever is getting the best of us. We have been preparing the garden, working around the place getting ready for those sunny summer days. Becca is going to take a little trip with a girlfriend. They fly into Vegas, see a show and then take a tour to the Grand Canyon. Should be nice weather for the trip.
Living in NW Montana has many opportunities for adventures year round. However, it sometimes takes an imagination to keep the ideas flowing. Even though the weather usually gets warmer this time of year, we can have unexpected weather changes throughout the day. For example, yesterday, in the morning we had a few inches of snow, and by afternoon it was clear, cold and sunny with green grass again.
I would encourage you to look beyond your backyard this spring. The world is full of amazing places to be explored, not just in the mountains as a hiker, but also in the towns and surrounding areas. It’s nice to get out and about.
A couple of simple tips when planning an outdoor activity in the spring around Montana would be…Soak up every moment of sunshine you can, but also, remember that it still can give you a sunburn when it is cool out. Make sure to have along a big hat and proper sun protection.
Lake McDonald is the longest and deepest lake in the park,
carved 472 feet deep in places and 10 miles long by glaciers.
Kootenai Indians called this the Yakilahkwilnamki,
“The Sacred Dancing Place” and held ceremonies on the lake shore.
Two thousand years ago,
few trees in the Middle East were big enough to construct anything.
However, one tree was valued above the others for its thick trunk and fine, strong wood.
In my life gospels will always be a part,
One at morning starts my workaday right
And a prayer with song gives peace at night.
Becca’s Apple Cream Cheese Tart Recipe.
This recipe is a tasty twist on an all-time favorite dessert…apple pie.
A delightful combination of cookie crust, cheese cake and apple pie filling.
Steven’s Taco Salad recipe is very flexible,
you can use all of your favorite taco ingredients.
I generally like to pack the salad with plenty of healthy things like beans,
tomatoes and avocado before moving onto things like cheese, Greek yogurt and salsa.
Thought for Today –
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will,
they soon become inevitable.
Enjoying Sunny Spring Days, Steven and Becca
