Doctor Visit -- Chives

Well... one more doctor visit down. The gastroenterologist just wanted to see how Frank was doing. I wanted the gastroenterologist to check my stomach out. My stomach has been doing some better since the family doctor added some meds... so many meds now. I always thought that I would never be on as many meds as my Grandmas and Mama. I'm heading that way though. I have an endoscopy schedule for later in April. I asked him if I was due my colonoscopy.. I was thinking he said 5 years, but he had said 5-10 years. He asked me a few questions and he said lets try for the 10 years. If you have these problems.. he named them ... and I said I would let him know if any of that stuff occurred.

They had called and upped my appointment to 2 and Frank's was at 2:30. We thought there would be a lot of papers for me to fill out because it had been a while since I had been in, but I only had to sign a couple of things. We were there by 1:30. There was an elderly lady in the waiting room that was waiting for her ride back to the nursing home. She will be a 100 years old on Easter Sunday. Her body was frail, but her mind was keen. She had some wonderful stories to tell of her life. We managed to get home by 3:30.

Onion Chives have become one of my favorite plants. They have beautiful leaves that I use in my cooking. They are super in an omelet. Nothing like making an omelet and having freshly snipped chives to sprinkle in it and over it. My kitchen scissors seem to cut the leaves better than my knives. I use them in soups and other dishes too.

Right now the plant has flower buds, but soon will look like this:


And then they will look beautiful like this:

  1. Glad your trip went smoothly today. I have never grown or cooked with chives. It is a very pretty plant though. We've had a slow rain all day today. Good day to just stay in and avoid the traffic.

  2. Thanks for the update on your appts.

    The blooming chive flower is so pretty! Great photos!!:)
