Tuesday and The Last Day Here

I slept well until 4:00AM this morning when I heard thunder and it began raining hard. I got up to see if the table and chairs on the patio were covered. Evidently Scott was awakened by the rain too and got up and covered them.  But that was the last of my sleep.

Finally I just got up and dressed about 4:45. I came in the kitchen and made myself breakfast (a bowl of Granola and a cup of coffee). Today I will take it easy and just read. Scott went back to work this morning. Most of his cold is over as is most of mine. It was an ungodly cold...the worst I've ever had. ..and the most different.  Not much mucus just lots of coughing. It settled in our chests. But it absolutely drained both of us. I fed it for myself and also Scott.  We had plenty of rest and I guess between the two of those things, it must have finally pretty much whipped the cold.

Sometime this afternoon I will fix another casserole dish with potatoes and the rest of the ham.  We will have it for dinner and then Scott can take the leftovers to work with him Wednesday for his lunch.

I am out of makeup. I have a tiny bit left for my trip back home tomorrow.  Then in the afternoon I will need to go to Independence and buy my makeup base and also mascara. I also want to get ink cartridges for my printer and envelopes to print addresses. It will be a huge job printing off all those newsletters on Friday.  Wednesday noon I will try to get lunch cooked for myself and Bob A. In the afternoon, I will clean the apartment.

Thursday I have an early morning hair appointment in Independence. When I get home I will go to the Ministerial Alliance meeting  first and spend the afternoon working on the envelope printing. I hope to get the newsletters printed off on Friday and in the mail. We will see how it goes.

As soon as I can find a box to fit it, I want to send Scott's Dell computer to Keith.  He will re-format it and install Windows 10 on it. I hope he can also find a battery for it. The battery is completely depleted. Hopefully he will also see if he can get Bob's e-mail configured too.  Then he will send it back to me.  I will give it to Bob for a better computer.  His little notebook is just too temperamental.

More later....

I have read all morning and it has rained most of the morning  too. Later this afternoon I will fix my potato/ham casserole.   We will have that for dinner along with some lettuce salad.  Then Scott can take whatever is left for his lunch tomorrow. 

I have everything packed except the computer and my make-up kit. Ginger will send my  Christmas gifts later in the mail.  I can't take them on the plane.  I am going to check both my carry-on and the large suitcase. I simply cannot carry them with the two computers in the computer bag too.

It finally took a hiatus from raining and I let Chloe out to go to the bathroom and Eddy back in. He was wet.  I hope he is alright. He must have run through the rain to get back in the house.

I fixed myself a peanut butter on toast sandwich for lunch. I drank a little bit more of the Coke too.  I will need to cut up the ham smaller for the casserole and peel three or four potatoes for it too. I will also chop some onion and put some milk in the cream of mushroom soup.

More even later....

We had our good supper and then watched an old movie and after that we all went to bed. Wednesday was going to be a big day.
