Go Where –Are You Kidding
It is still coming down and the fools who are driving too fast are all over the road.
The chip dip is made and in the fridge. Dirty dishes because I made a few are in the dishwasher. My first thought is the heck with it I’m going back to bed. I don’t want to go out in this mess. ( You can tell I’m getting old no making snow angels for this old broad.)
David got in about 7 am and has gone to bed. Cindy Is working (what else), Every beating heart in the house is sleeping but mine. I sit here thinking I need a shower and to get dressed. But then I think not yet, crawl back in bed for a couple of hours because I have fed the zoo, made the chip dip, and have the dishes washing. Do I have other things to do –yep. I could do Fill It Ins, read, sweep the floors, even sit and chat with you. Nah I’m going to crawl in my nice warm bed for a couple more hours of shut eye, The most I will sleep is an hour maybe 2 then I’ll pick up where I left off. Good idea don’t you agree! I’m Gone!
If I sound confused I guess I am. This is the last few days but not in correct order. Cindy took me to see AquaMan the other day. Great movie with many action scenes. The underwater scenes seemed very believable. Afterward we went to Applebees for all you can eat riblets plus I had a few shrimp on the side. (Very tasty).
I have had a few dizzy spells that I can clear away by laying down and resting for a while but that results in this.
The bed still isn’t made this morning. No what I usually do.
Yesterday David took me to Rite Aids and I stocked up on these.
I now have enough Fill It IN books to keep me busy for a while.
I figure I should keep the brain busy even when the rest of me gets tired.
I have decided not to look for a dog. I don’t think I’m up to caring for one anymore. I spent time yesterday on Facebook looking at everything that wagged it’s tail at me and mentally long for a real one but I’ll be 84 in a little over another month and I don’t think it is a good Idea to add another furry to our zoo. (dammit).
Cindy is working today ( like almost every day), Dave is resting after being up all night, and I’m pestering you.
We have Bunko this Saturday so I check the cupboard to make sure I had the fixings for chip dip I’m all set.
Well I have fed the cats but the birds still need attention so I’m going to have to get started on that project. So I’ll warm my coffee and get cracking!
Have a great productive day.
Good Evening. Well it looks like I escaped the flu bug so I count myself very lucky. I have been resting, eating well, and helping to keep the infections down. Today the last of the laundry is in the dryer, everything dry is folded or put away, and I’m visiting with you. No snow, the sun is setting, and a slight wind is making the flags dance.
I have had company on my nap today because Lily laid with me. I told Cindy yesterday that I have given up on getting a dog. It is too discouraging and I have all her furry babies to help take of. I wake up sometimes a little dizzy or disoriented so I don’t need to worry about a dog to take care of.
I’m still reading Stephen King’s The Sun Dog with 83 pages to go. It is a little scary but not gory.
I had my nails done the other day in the mahogany color ( my favorite). I’ll get a picture of them later.
We have Alexa now so I just ask her what day it is. Questions like mail delivery get answered too.
Well Alexa said it was Sunday January 13. That would make it almost half way through this month.
Well Cindy is working, David is watching Tv and I’m of course pestering you. Have a great week and let me know how you are doing.
It seems that I’m the only human in this house that doesn’t have the flu. I am keeping the laundry, the dishes, and anything that might carry the germs caught up. I’m still ok and am trying to stay that way. I won’t be chatty right now but I will get back to you later. Take care and stay careful.
Five days I have been away. I have been searching for a dog, got lost, needed a policeman to assure me I was on the right road to get home. The State police man in Caro was very helpful and understanding . He assured me I wasn’t really lost I just needed to stay on M24 to get home. That was Saturday,
Yesterday I had a bout with dizziness and vomiting. I used a cane to get around part of the day. I fell in the bathroom that morning and had to crawl to my living chair to pull myself up. Later in the day I was doing much better. Today I feel bretty good. ( Well good but not so pretty).
Alexa tells me it is Monday Jan. 7th . . The temperature is 47 degrees, cloudy until 2pm then forecast is for light rain until midnight.
The only snow is on the sidewalks.
Cindy did the grocery shopping yesterday. She bought lots of canned goods because we had given a lot away before Christmas to a fire victim.
Cupboard is looking better
She also brought home flowers.
I took a stem to put in mt room.
I have the zoo fed this morning, dishes in the dishwasher, but I’m a little light headed so I think I’ll go rest a bit. Have a great day and I’ll see you later.
It is 30 degrees calling for snow but it is rain right now. The wind is at 9 mph. It will be low 30s and high 20s through 7 am tomorrow. We sure could use a little sunshine right now. ( I won’t hold my breath..)
I’m almost through with Salman Rushdie’s Two Years Eight Months and Twenty Eight Nights. Wes loaned it to me and I must confess I was lost in it a few times but I should finish it tonight. Then it is on to the three that are waiting for me and the one I have to finish.
I woke up this morning with a stiff neck and was troubled all night with pains in my arms and back. I think a lot of it was from taking down Christmas decorations yesterday. But that procedure is now packed away for another year thank goodness. I have to thank Cindy for working so hard to get it done even sick as a dog as she was.
Well I do have to go to my room to write a few checks and get the bills covered.
Have a great day tomorrow and get things under control at your home.
Remember it is a new year and we all have things to do.
Happy New Year everyone.
I started taking down the Christmas things and right now the place is a mess. It may take a day or two but I will get it under control. Well it is a new year and we all have things to pack away, files to clean out and store. It seems a little overwhelming but like with any job one step at a time and we will accomplish our goal.
The new flag is up
Juicy, Cindy’s goose, has her clothes changed as has my little goose. The holiday clothes have been packed away.
I’m working on the birds right now.
This year I will know where they are and not have to hunt for them.
This beauty was a Christmas gift from David.
It is hanging in the bath room right now and I love it.
The building are out of the front window.
I do have to locate the boxes they belong in then I can put them away.
This is another pile on the foot stool that needs to be put away.
Again I have to find the right boxes to put them in. This thing my not be solved right away because I’m a little lost on what to do first.
The weather is cloudy, in the 20s over night. Don’t see any snow called for yet. But this is Michigan so you never know what is next. I’m tempted to take a little nap right now but there is alot spread all over so I’ll have to think about that.
Well I will finish putting the birds in their boxes and then a nap time is called for. When I wake up I’ll carry on. Hope your day is going well.
Just hours away from 2019. A new year with new hopes and dreams for us all. This will be my 84th year on this side of the grass. There have been some sad and bad times but also a lot of happy caring times. May this year bring you health, wealth, and happiness. May you discover new meaning in caring for others. May the ones that are here are also near this coming year. May those who have pasted bring bring a smile of happiness to your heart.
Happy New Year Everyone!
51 degrees and partly sunny (but I don’t see any sunshine just wet pavement). It is the 28th of December (what is going on Mother Nature?)
Our flag for now.
As you can see there is no snow. In fact I asked Alexa the last time we had 52 degree weather and she answered I’m not sure.
Well I have stripped my bed, washed the bedding , and am waiting for it to dry. I have other sheets but why bother pulling them out when I’ll have my clean ones in another few minutes.
Well Cindy is working, David is resting, and I’m just playing around, visiting with you, waiting for the mail person to come by, and putting off the domestic goddess work a little longer.
Darlene and Michael visited yesterday and the middle of the visit I had to lay down for a while. Not a nice thing to do but my system is such that I have to follow through. I hope they will forgive me for the action.
The cards on the wall keep growing and I started to thumb tack them when I ran out of yarn to hang them on.
Thank you everyone for the cards and I will continue to hang them until after New Years,.
Our Cali doesn’t let a little thing like a village get in the way of her nap.
Well my friend the dryer has stopped, my bedding is dry, so I have no excuse for not playing the domestic goddess and getting some important things done.
Enjoy your day and we will visit again.
Smile a bit! Even laugh out loud at this glorious weather we are having!
Just a short message wishing every one a very Happy Holiday. We have just finished our traditional Christmas Eve Dinner. Sons Wes with Kathy, Les with Anne, daughter Cindy with David and myself had a dinner of Ham ( Wes brought it), mashed potatoes, fresh fruit & vegethers, yams, corn, croissants and pie. Now the pie got wrapped up before I got any but I still might have a piece before bed. Basically It was a great dinner with family and friends!
I hope your holiday will be as happy as ours.
Can’t resist the pictures
