Friday Again and Lots of Complications

Well, it's Friday again and I spent the morning shredding old documents and fixing lunch. We had our leftover meatloaf, boiled potatoes, veggies and Bob's coleslaw. He had the last two sugar cookies, When I finish this blog, I will make peanut butter cookies. I always have to have some cookies around here.

Leeann's mother passed away last Tuesday and they are having her Celebration of Life this next Tuesday at our church. We are to fix dinner for ten or so afterwards. I agreed to fix a dessert...my cherry pie cake. It's easy and very good.  That also is the day I take the cakes to Independence and at 9:00 that day I also have my long hair appointment. The service doesn't start until 10:30 so I should be able to get back to the church by then. Then they are going to Independence to the cemetery to leave her mom's ashes. Dinner isn't until 12:30 or 1:00.  I will leave our cakes on the way to Independence. It will be there then. I hope that timing all works out.  It will be a very busy Tuesday. I woke up sometime after 2:00 with all this on my mind. I never did get back to sleep and just got up shortly after 4:00 AM.

Next Wednesday, depending on the weather, we had intended to go to Branson and stay overnight and see a show Wednesday night. If it rains, we may not go. We will play it by ear.

It's raining today. I don't know if it's forecast for all day or not. I had hoped to go to Wal Mart and get a few groceries. But I may not go if it continues raining.  Justin had intended to mow this evening but that won't happen now.

More later....

It rained all day today and I never did make it to the market. I made chocolate chip cookies instead of the peanut butter cookies. I must have used up both the other mixes. I buy the Wal Mart brand because each box has two mixes in them and each makes three dozen cookies. It's a lot simpler to just add a cube of softened oleo and an egg and stir up the batter and bake them.  We go through a lot of cookies between the two of us.  I will try to buy all three mixes if they have them when I finally get to the market.

I spent the afternoon organizing my file cabinet and shredding old documents.  I'm keeping receipts a year and then shredding them.  I'm keeping my Medicare and Blue Cross/Blue Shield receipts a year too.

Saturday we will go to breakfast at 7:30. Then later at lunchtime, we plan to go to "Just Us" for lunch.  We could eat our leftover broccoli cheese soup but it depends on how hungry we are at noon.

This evening, Jeannie, who lives next door, called and asked if I had water. I turned on the faucet to a trickle of water. I called the water company and reported it. They sent a crew right out. Someone had hit the meter at the Dollar General store on the corner and all our water was pouring onto the street.  They got it repaired and called me back to check if I had water. I had to get Missy off my lap to check and she was mad!

I had already had a sponge before I went to bed and put my PJs on and then later went on to bed....without my bath.
