Thursday and Housework and Lunch

I slept well again last night. I got up about 5:00 AM and get myself ready for the day and fed myself and Missy. After I watched the weather I took her outside for awhile while I watered all the flowers. We have rain in the forecast but the forecast is seldom right for our area.

After I came back in I vacuumed and car out including the trunk and also vacuumed the dining room and living room. Now the place should be nice and clean for the weekend. Tomorrow I plan to go to exercises again. Then I have no particular plans. I would like to read my book. I haven't been back to it in a week.

I made up my microwave meatloaf and covered it with saran and put it in the frig to wait until time to bake it. I have the topping mixed up in the blender too. I bake the meatloaf for ten minutes and then add the topping and bake it another ten minutes. It's an easy to do way to bake a meatloaf. I will boil some potatoes to go with it and add a veggie. I will look for some steamers out at Walmart. 

I have one load of laundry in and I have Missy's afghans in the dryer on "fresh air". They are always full of cat hair. Every once in a while I run them through the laundry.

Now I have the laundry in the dryer and have cleaned the lint filter from the cat's afghans. Sure enough, it had a lot of cat hair in it.

I'm going out to Leslie's on Saturday since that is her 60th birthday. I have a gift and card for her.

More later... I need to go to the market. I need a few things.

Well, that little trip to the market ended up costing me nearly $40. Bob came over just as I started lunch. He had not been here long when the air conditioner repair man called and said he was on his way out to the church. So Bob left to go let him in and I turned off the preparations for lunch until Bob could call me and tell me when he would be back.   When that happened, I started lunch up again. After we ate, he stayed awhile. After he left, I resumed reading my book. The name of the book, in case I didn't mention it is "Cramming for the Final". It is very progressive. But in case my readers had not noticed before, I am a very Progressive Christian myself.

I have a group that meets every other Sunday evening to watch a video and then we discuss what we have just watched.  After that we have fellowship and refreshments. The name of the group is "Living the Questions". I have about a dozen different videos that we have watched over the past twelve years or so and that small group has grown from 6 to 14 over those years. We have lost three of our original group from deaths, including my own husband.

I have discarded many of my 4th century religious beliefs and gone back to the original beliefs about Jesus' teachings and the recognition of the Kingdom of God on earth. It may be hard to see that "kin- dom" in today's world but it does exist. We simply have to look for it.

I finished my book. So more later...

My brother-in-law, Bob, came back at 5:00 and stayed until 6:30. After he left I tried to find something to watch but ended up watching PBS's "This Old House". Bob, my husband, and I used to watch that regularly. He was pretty handy.

I noticed that my ankles were badly swollen again this evening.  I elevated them for awhile but that didn't help much. I finally decided to just go on to bed. I told Missy and I expect she will join me soon. She usually does.  :)
