Monday and Exercises Again

We will go to exercises today again. There were none of Friday since it was a holiday weekend.

I slept fairly well last night. Still I woke up at 3:30 and finally just got up at 4:00.

Today is also the day I bake a cake for the First Christian Church in Independence. Phyllis and Bob and Karan will also have one for me to take. Bob will go with me to take them up and then I will get my hair done while we are there and we will also eat at Big Cheese in the noon hour. I don't know what we will have today. I am out of ideas. I will need to look through my recipe book for a suggestion.

Missy is waiting patiently for me to get her breakfast out. I am hungry too. All I ate last night was some grapes and my last two chocolates that Juanita gave me for my birthday. My birthday is Friday and I will be 81.

I was hanging some garland on Saturday and missed a step on my step stool and fell backward onto the carpet. I got up gingerly but found I was not hurt at all. I expected a bruise on my backside later but when I looked there was nothing. I guess the trick to falling safely, is not to tense up but to relax.

That's the second fall I've taken since I've been old. When I was still in my home, I was putting a box in the attic and the ladder slipped right out from under me and I fell backward onto the garage floor. I got up carefully that time too but all I had was a bump on the back of my head. There was a piece of  indoor/outdoor carpet by the door and I fell on it. Bob was still alive when that happened and was off on a disaster somewhere with FEMA.  It took me a long time to tell him about that.

More later....

We had just plain tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch today. neither of us was particularly hungry. 

I took some photos of the Christmas decorations at church yesterday and will share some of them with you all.

This is the sanctuary decorated for the holiday.

This is the table in the entry foyer.

This is a stand at the end of the foyer next to the office door. There's one on the other side of that door just like this one.
This is the nativity scene up front. It was a little dark up there when I took this photo.

Anyhow, the church looks lovely with all it's Christmas decorations. Here 's the tree. That was my main project.

More later...

Afternoon and after Bob left I went to Walmart's for groceries and later even  later made peanut butter criss cross cookies. Then I sat down to read the mail...such as it was.

Scott called later to say he got his birthday gift. I was so happy he got it on time. Yesterday was his 56th birthday.  I got him a fast charger for his I Phone. If they still have them at Dillard's, I will get one for Ginger too.  They had a black Friday sale so they may be out.

Bob came over at 5:30 and we had some of those cookies with some of Jeromy's wine that he sent home with us.

When he left at 7:00, I took my bath and tried to get Missy to jump up on my lap. She seems to find it harder and harder to do that. She will be 14 in the spring.  That's pretty old for a cat.

I stayed up until 10:00 and when Missy and I went to bed, I went right to sleep.
