Thursday and A Quiet Day

I don't have anything on the menu today. Speaking of menu, we are just going to have grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for lunch today.  Bob has his large Lions Club breakfast this morning.

I am just about back to normal today after my terrible illness. My system even broke down and worked this morning...after a week. Thank goodness!

The wind continues to blow and the fire danger is high. Grass fires are burning all around us.

I need to bake cookies today. I think Bob ate the last two last night. I will bake sugar cookies with Hershey kisses in the center.

I couldn't get an appointment with my doctor until next Monday at 3:00. I was supposed to have checked in with my doctor when I finished my antibiotic.  That would have been Tuesday. I called for an appointment and he was packed Tuesday and Wednesday.  He is out of the office on Thursdays and is leaving town early tomorrow morning for the weekend. He was out of town last weekend too. When I went into the emergency room last Thursday night, he was gone.

I texted Bob a little bit ago and asked if he was at his Lion's Club breakfast yet and he must have just been getting up. He wasn't sure he was going to go. I reminded him that he had paid his dues and he should go. He may go now. He has 45 minutes to get there.

More later....

He later texted me again and said he had missed his meeting.  It started at 6:30 and not 7:30. He said he was confused about the time.  He was also depressed. He has bouts of depression from time to time...mostly over Dennis, his son.

He came over while I was baking cookies and drank a cup of coffee. He had been to Braums and bought a sausage biscuit. He watched me bake the cookies and tried one out . They were sugar cookies with a chocolate star in the center.

I suggested we go to Bartlesville and eat at Pies and Such.  He thought that was a good idea and volunteered to drive. I took some chicken and noodles over to Karan and Bobby and then we left.

We had a great lunch and pie for dessert.  It was peach raspberry...very good!

We got back at time for him to go home for a nap. He felt better.

More  later....

Bob came over before 6:00 to watch the news and stayed until 7:00. He went home and I had my bath and Missy and I watched TV until 9:00, when we went to bed.

I live in the suburbs near St. Louis, Missouri, hundreds of miles away from where you are. We had strong winds out of the west and southwest all last night. This morning when I woke up, I kept smelling smoke inside of my house. I searched all around inside of the house to make sure there wasn't something burning, then I looked out the windows and saw no one doing anything anywhere that I could see, then I opened the door and the strong smell of smoke was in the air, but I still couldn't actually see any smoke anywhere. It was a bit worrying, smelling smoke but not being able to figure out where it was coming from. But I went about my business in the house and finally stopped noticing the smoky odor.

Later, on the local afternoon news it was reported that fire departments here in the St. Louis County area had received hundreds of calls from people who smelled smoke. Many of them feared they had an electrical fire inside their homes. The fire departments had to make announcements on the news and Facebook that the smoke that we were smelling around here, was from the fires in Kansas and Oklahoma. In some ways it really is a small world, isn't it.

I hope that you continue to feel better.
