Busy Saturday

This has been a busy Saturday. I met Bob this morning for breakfast and then went to the church before I went to pick up Juanita. I duplicated my Camp notebook for Melissa and Leslie and left their books out at church. They can pick them up tomorrow at church.

Then I went on to Independence and picked up Juanita for our trip to Bartlesville. She is really getting fragile at 91. But we enjoyed our visit. We were going to eat ay Pies and Such but they were closed on Saturday so we went back to Dink's for Bar B Que. I didn't tell her I just eaten there yesterday. It was important to her.

I took her home and was back home by 2:00. Then I mowed my back yard. I started to trim it but my trimmer quit on me. I am trying to charge the battery and will try to finish trimming tomorrow afternoon.

I called Bob when I got home to tell him I was back. His daughter, Denise, had brought him over some DVD movies for us to watch so he came over about 6:00 and we watched one of them. We watched High Crimes with Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman. It was quite good. It was a real mystery. I like Morgan Freeman.

He left a while ago to go home and shower and go to bed. I will take my bath in a little while and go to bed myself.

Friday Lunch Date

About 10:00 Bob and I will leave for Bartlesville to meet Myra for lunch. We will go to the mall although I'm not sure where we will eat lunch. The three of us will make that decision later this morning. The last time Myra and I met we ate at Pies and Such and had a really neat soup and half sandwich. Then we had a piece of pie.

The rest of the day is free. I have already had my hair done this morning and mopped the kitchen and hall floors.

I need to go to the bank first and get some more money. When we get to Bartlesville, I also want to check into Christopher and Banks and see if they have anything I can't live without. I also need to check with Dr. Burch's office to see if they are open today and if so, for how long. I think they close at 1:00 on Fridays. I need to pick up my contacts for my right eye. I still have three for the left eye.

More later...

I forgot all about stopping for my contacts. What a day. We did meet Myra for lunch and went to Dink's Barbeque for lunch. It was, as usual, very good. Then Bob and I went to Independence again so I could drop off my comforter to be washed. Then we came on back home where I dropped him off at his home.

Thursday Again

It's Thursday again and I am ready for it. This has been a short week for me but I am happy anyhow. I have too much going in my life anyhow. Last night was the PINCH meeting and then Bob came over and we watched PBS programming.

Missy, my cat, has been having a health problem. She evidently has a hair ball she is unable to cough up. I don't know what I can do for her. She chokes and hacks but nothing comes up. I don't suppose a vet could help her. I may go buy some of that cat food that is labeled for hair ball control. Otherwise, I am perplexed. Usually they can cough up those hairballs. She woke me up twice last night coughing and choking.

I have nothing going tonight. I may watch a DVD if I can find one we want to see. Bob has not seen The Bucket List. If the library has it, I may check it out.

I will fix hamburgers and french fries for lunch today. Then I will go to work. Tomorrow we will go to Bartlesville to meet Myra for lunch. Then Saturday, if she still wants to go, I will take Juanita back to Bartlesville for lunch.

A Different Wednesday

This will be a little different Wednesday. I went in to the office today to work an hour and then came home to get a few things done before leaving for Just Us for lunch over at Cherryvale. Bob and I have a free lunch coming. We have saved ten of their tickets for a free lunch. We will redeem them today. Afterward I will go back to the office for the last three hours of my work day.

This evening I have the PINCH meeting at the Presbyterian church at 5:30. Afterward I will come home to watch Nova and Nature on PBS. I need to get some milk at Brahms this morning if I will have a smoothie for dinner this evening.

We received our 2013 Silver Dollar City tickets in yesterday's mail. I will give Bob his when I see him.

It's a brisk day with sunshine salvaging it.

Back to Work

It's back to work again today. First, though, I will go to Independence to get my hair done. Then I will come home and fix lunch/dinner. After that I will go to work.

Tonight I have the library board meeting and foundation meeting following that. Tomorrow evening after work, I have the PINCH meeting. I work on Thursday afternoon but am free that evening. That's good because Friday Bob and I are going to Bartlesville to meet Myra for lunch. Then Saturday I have promised to take Juanita to Bartlesville to eat at Dink's.

Then, of course, next week is Thanksgiving. I want to stop by the health food store today and buy pecans for my pecan pie on Thanksgiving. The other pie will be pumpkin.

Last night Bob came over and we watched "The King's Speech". It was very good. I had seen it once when it was On Demand on cable but that has been a very long time. I had baked some cookies yesterday afternoon and we had tea and cookies with the video.

I'm going to ask at the library if they have "The Bucket List". I saw it with Scott but Bob has not seen it.

I slept very well last night and so did Missy, my cat. We didn't wake up until 4:30. That's very unusual for us. Inky, my outdoor tom cat, spent the night in my garage. It's very cold this the 20s.

No Work Today

There is no work today. This is a national holiday. Actually the holiday (Veteran's Day) was yesterday but since it fell on Sunday, the office is celebrating it today.

I slept well last night. I slept until 5:30, which is unusual for me. I'm usually up at 5:00. I will stay around this morning until Bob gets his car to Dollar Tire to get his tire repaired. There's always the chance he won't be able to get there because the tire will go down again.

I don't exactly know what I will do today. I want to do something though. I may go to Bartlesville and take Bob if he wants to go. We could eat at Dink's. I will have to go to the bank today to use the ATM machine. I am nearly out of cash. My social security will be in on Wednesday. I also will get my salary on Thursday and my bills are scheduled to be paid then too.

Bob came over for lunch. He had filled his tire with air and gone to have it repaired. He brought back my compressor. We then went out to Wal Mart and bought some food for the food basket at church and took it out there. After he brought me home, I baked some cookies. He will come over this evening and we will watch The King's Speech. It's been awhile since I've seen it On Demand on the cable.

Sunday Again

Bob called yesterday morning to say he needed a favor. He went out to get in his car to come over for lunch and noticed that he had a flat. I took my compressor over there and we aired up his tire. It was leaking from the valve stem so it didn't stay aired up. Tomorrow the Dollar Tire store will be open and he will drive up there and have it repaired. I left the air compressor there at his garage so he could air the tire up to get it there.

He came home with me and spent the afternoon and evening. I had the old film on DVD of "The Flight of the Phoenix" and we watched it last night and then I took him home.

This morning I picked him up for church. He generally drives. After church we ate with John and Leslie and Phyllis at El Pueblito. We had a good visit.

We had rain today and so we had a small congregation again. It got quite cold while we were in church.

This afternoon I will do my traditional letters and then pick Bob up for the Living the Questions group at Howard and Judy's tonight. He decided to attend rather then to stay home and twiddle his thumbs.
