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.


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,


And Life Goes On!

Good Evening it is 10/2 and time for a visit.

I have been reading David Baldacci’s The Whole Truth.  I’m on page 200.  It goes to 451.  I will finish it but I can’t say I’m actually enjoying it.  

I have a Reader’s Digest (large  print) for Oct. to read.  Plus Stephen King’s The Institute, Joe Hill’s Full Throttle, and I mentioned before James Patterson’s The Inn.  So it looks like I have enough to keep me occupied for a while,

It is on the chilly side for these old bones of mine so I don’t expect to sit outside right now.

Honey came up with fleas the other day so it was have her treated today.  I don’t know if that is the end of it but I’ll soon know.  (Ain’t life just chuck full of surprises!)

I had a Fasting blood test today and I should hear about it on Monday when I see the I doctor.  It is just one of those 84 years old things!

Well It will soon be time to bring the plants inside so I have to get a baby gate to block off the front room so Honey doesn’t get in there and chew on the plants.

Guess it will be a new routine at adapt

Well my friend that is it for tonight.  Rest comfortably I know Iiil!!!!

What To Do!

Things aren’t going well.  Health, every thing is good but mentally I have placed my self in a situation that is making me feel some what helpless.  I know I should only worry about my pets and me. But when it hits you in the face it is hard to ignore.I’m going to have to think this through and decide if I move on or not.

Hey I Don’t Bounce Anymore!

Yesterday I spent part of the day at the Beaumont Troy hospital.  I had spent since last Saturday with pain in my chest area.  I had fallen on that day and hit the floor face down.  I called Cindy to take me in for x-rays.  After several tests including blood tests it was decided that I have bruised ribs.  I was sent home with instructions to use an Ice pack for 20 mins. every few hours and take Aleve for pain.  Yesterday deep breaths were very painful but today the pain has subsided.  I’m just taking it easy because I was told Bruised ribs take a long time to heal.  I do have a couple of books to read and a Fill It In book to work in.

I have taken the time to clear a problem, by phone, with the Credit Union, do some paper filing, and  to visit  you.  I have a couple of pictures i want to take outside but with no sunshine that will have to wait. Right now I’m sitting in my light jacket because I’m having trouble keeping warm.  All I can say is sh** happens so you roll with the punches!  Otherwise I’m all Right!!

It Is September

For years the Date of September 6 has always had two meaning.  First was it was usually first day of school for the year.  But for me, and more importantly it was my daddy’s birthday.  Now he has been gone a long time but the day still brings him back in  my mind.  The way when I had a problem I only had to sit, talk it out, and he didn’t have to say a word because I found the answer myself.  I tried to be like him with my kids but I just didn’t have the knack to pull it off. Well now I’m in my 80s but I still don’t have the magic.  I guess I’m not granted with the gift.

Well I finished Ruth Ware’s The Turn Of The Key and it is well worth the time to read it.  Now I’m reading David Baldacci’s The Whole Truth.  I’m on chapter 14 but am not into it yet.  But I’ll keep reading and maybe it will catch me.  I also bought James Patterson’s The Inn and I’ll start that next.

The flowers around the house are really blooming.

These are on the left side of the house]

These are on the right side.

There are also flowers out in back.

The weather has been chilly the last couple of days and I’m finding it hard to sit out.  I guess it is old age!!

Cindy took me to get my nails done yesterday.  The baby finger my left hand had the nail  break off  half way up.  The man was able to put  new one on.  I guess this is it for now.  Enjoy your days!
