What Is New

Today is a can’t do it day.  I can’t tune in the TV ( I normally have no problem.)  My typing is for sh*t.  I don’t know what to do first! Do I work or play!

The good news there is a new railing on the front porch. No more dancing a jig to get up and down off it.   They will finish the back deck when it gets warmer.

No new snow is expected today.  Anne and Les are shopping for boots and slippers.  Honey is in the front window standing watch for strangers.  Spirit has been fed and is quiet in the bedroom corner.

I’m good, my left side isn’t bad as it was(it ls almost normal).  Now  I’m going to the dining room table and work in my Fill It In Book. Things are good here!!

I made Mom’s Chip Dip for Anne’s work yesterday and she said it was a big hit.

I’m looking to a visit from Cindy on Monday if the weather holds.  I haven’t seen her in a while.  (miss her)

I hope everyone is Ok and I’ll visit again.

 

Truth Be Told

A good camera can tell what it sees.  This is the truth about this 84 year old.

The smile is there but the vitality is hiding

The red around the eyes is now permanent even 10 hours sleep can not erase it.  I look at the picture and all I can think is I’m finally Old.  Getting better looking is out of the question. All I can say now is I’m glad I’m still on the right side of the grass.

Many things are not right.  Like my left side of my body is weaker than the right.   My hearing is almost gone because without my hearing aid I can hear the tone of a person’s voice but I can’t understand what they are saying.  I know it aggravates they as much as it does me.

My ability to recall what I used to know by heart is quickly fading.  This has to be difficult for others to repeat things, tell me information that I used to know.

Things as simple as changing the battery in my hearing aid is difficult because it is small and I can drop it when I try to put it in.  There are times when I want to give it up and crawl in a deep hole.   Then I see others younger than me struggling to survive and I think that there by the grace of God it is not me.

I am not unhappy or depressed but just concerned that what I can do is enough to warrant crawling out of bed and breathing the air or am I just a problem for my family to worry about.  But I love them dearly and I hope I’m worth all the shit they put up with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pictures As Promised

This is an example of all the trees around me right now.  Soon the leaves will fall and the color will be gone.  I going to enjoy them while they are here.

This was the scene on the deck this morning but it did all disappear except in the shade by afternoon.  As I said before this is a hint of what is to come soon.  It makes me glad my red puffy coat is hanging in the front closet.

I think I have everything of mine in my bedroom now so the 3rd bedroom is ready to be used.  You know I didn’t realize I had so much stuff.  (I still haven’t got my stuff out of storage. )  I think I’m going to have a give away soon.

Honey is doing fine except if anything moves out the front window her barking motor swings lnfo action.  Spirit is trying to talk a little also.

Well I have a little domestic goddess duties so I close for now.  Have a great day tomorrow I know I’m going to.

 

 

 

 

Double Wow

Up at 7 am, looked out the back door and it was white every where.  Yes my friend SNOW falling from the sky, covering every thing outside, and signaling what is yet to come.  I grabbed the camera, opened the back door and took a picture.  (I’ll post a picture later today.)  It is the 7th day of November and Fall’s Mother Nature seems to have gone into hiding.

Yesterday I moved all my stuff from the spare bedroom to prepare for my grand daughter’s arrival over Thanksgiving.  It will be great to see Courtney again.

Well it has stopped snowing, both Spirit and Honey are still sleeping.  So I think I’ll crawl back into my warm bed for a couple of hours more of shut eye.  talk to you later!!

Wow November.

Wow November already!  Soon the white stuff will fall and I will want to hibernate for sure.  Every thing is going well here.  As my fall heals I am able to do things around the house ro help out.  I am well looked after and comfortable.

Next week I will have a land line put in  to keep in touch a little better.  I am doing ok with just one hearing aid and have decided not replace the one.

Today is laundry day and Les is in charge of that.  My bed has been stripped and my laundry basket returned,  Soon It will be clean laundry, bed making, and putting the bedroom in order.

The leaves are falling but very lightly.

I don’t know what I’ll do today so i will go with the flow.

Have a good week end and do something for yourself today.

Today Is Halloween

That is great if you have scales and a tail.

Yep it is raining.   Soppy, cold, gray, nasty, wet with no sunshine, no dry sidewalks, no warm sunshiney feeling to enjoy on this holiday.  There are bags of potato chip in the hallway to  give out to the trick or treaters.  ( But how may will we see on a day like this?)

The trees are wearing their most stunning colors before losing their leaves.  No doubt Autumn is a lovely season to be in.  But soon it will be white, slippery, and cold.  An old broad like me will be stepping very carefully when I go outside.  ( I need a lesson on how to add pictures to my post again so I got to talk to Les because old women my age forget Sh** real easy!

Right now I have a bed to make, a few things in the sink to clear, and my coffee to enjoy.

Well my friend enjoy as much as you can of the holiday.

Tired.

I’m tired of waking up aching.

I’m tired of taking stock of what needs to be corrected.

I’m tired of  checking on a dog that gets into everything and destroys what she can.

I’m tired when my chest aches when I use my left arm.

On the bright side the new microwave will be installed over the stove today and all the buttons will work with instructions on how to use it.  Then the one over the stove and the one on the counter are out of here.  (More counter space Yes)

Well Spirit is fed, I have my pills to take, my bed is made, and my room is cleaned.  I haven’t quite made up my mind on what to do today but I have time to plan it.

Have a good, happy, productive day because I’m going to try.

 

With Les and Anne.

Not a happy day.  Honey chewed up one of my hearing aids that was on my vanity.  This happened before and I still paying for that replacement. I think I’ll do with out now,  I can’t keep paying $ 2000. + to replace it again.      There are times when I’d like to hang her from a tree but I can’t because I love her,  Believe me pets are not cheap!!
Well my chest still hurts and I have accepted the fact it will be awhile healing.

I’m doing fine here with Les and Anne. When my pain goes away it will be so much better.

Tomorrow our new microwave will be delivered.  That well be a great thing to work with.  ( All the buttons will work horay!)

It is a little after 9 pm and I’m ready to hit the tick!

I heard from my nephew Foya yesterday.  He said I  can move but I can’t hide from him. God love him,

Well Les is getting me set up with on line banking and a couple of other thing to make possible to meet my commitments without having t travel.

Well that is it for tonight.  Rest well and we will visit again.

 

It Is 10/18/19

Good morning from Westland.   The the bird has been fed.  The dog has been outside a couple of times,  I had my coffee and oatmeal, my bedroom is in order, I took my pills, did up the dishes, and watched two Cardinals play around the garage roof.  I need to get dressed and I want to clean the bathroom floor.  The chest is still sore from the fall but not near as painful as it was.

My computer is set up on my vanity so when I turn my head a little to the right I see this old woman staring at me in the mirror.  ( she needs her hair combed!)

Yesterday evening I worked in my Fill It In puzzle book for a little while.  As my chest gets better I want to help Anne around the house a little more.

Honey still can’t leave the cats alone so they are going to have to swipe her a couple of times to show her who is boss.   Also anything paper is fair game to tear up if she can chew on it.   I know she is a puppy But also a pain in the ass!!  I’ll check in a little later.

It Is Westland Now.

OK  I have moved again,  I am now living in Westland with Les (my youngest son) and my daughter-in-law Anne.  It didn’t work out between Wes and Honey.  I have a nice big room with my bedroom furniture, my computer, and am starting to locate where everything is, Spirit, my bird, is in the dining room, Honey’s cage is in the living room.  When I locate my camera I will try to get some pictures up.

I’m still having trouble with my left side from where I fell at Wes’ house.  The Doctor said I pulled cartilage from the rib area and chipped one of the ribs. It’s basically on the left side which means I have to lay on my right. The doctor says I’m just going to have to rest and take time to let it heal. Les, Anne, and Cindy  have been more than helpful getting me through  this problem.   I am charging my cell phone while Les and Anne are working in case I run into problem.  It has been quite a change of life but my family is making it a little easier.  Well I’m tired and yawning so I’m off to bed.  Have a good day tomorrow,
