A Rainy Tuesday

It continues to rain today as it did all night and most of yesterday. There is a flood warning for parts of the area...including Coffeyville's low lying areas.

I slept well through the rain though. I am dressed and ready for my day. Missy is waiting patiently for her breakfast so I may finish this after I've had mine.

So..more later..

O.K. We're both fed and I have the cakes loaded into my trunk.

Bob and I will take the cakes to Independence in about two hours. Because of the rain, I will leave a little early. I want to take the Sunflower Road  detour and avoid  the slick and muddy detour straight up 10th street road.  There may be flooding there on Sunflower so that's why I'm leaving early.

After we leave the cakes,  I will have my hair done.  Then Bob will try to get his driver's license renewed. Mine doesn't expire until next year. Then we will check to see if Great China is open again. That's where we hope to have lunch.

When I get back home, I will vacuum my living room. That's the only area I didn't get vacuumed yesterday.

More later....

I ended up driving over to the Tyro road to get to Independence. Sunflower Road is probably flooded.

Well, I didn't get the living  room vacuumed. At least not yet. We did eat at Great China and it was terrific! Then when I got home I dropped Bob off at his home and went home to get my grocery list. I went out to Walmart and spent a small fortune.  Then I went to the Health Food Store and bought my pecans and later went to Country Mart to buy pork chops and stew meat and sale cake mixes.  I spent a lot of money this afternoon on food!

Then I came home and baked cake mix cookies.  Missy and I went out for a little while but it was too chilly and windy for me. I brought her back in and she is asleep in the recliner right now.

I finished reading the Reader's Digest and will send it home with Bob this evening.

My ankles swelled up again this afternoon. I guess I was on my feet too long today. Anyhow I have them elevated now on a folding chair. It's almost time for the newspaper so I'll sign off for this time.

More later...

Bob left about the news and I took my bath and watched TV with Missy until 9:00 when we went to bed.
