Wednesday and Exercises and Bunco at Asbury Village

I slept pretty well last night. I did wake up once but got back to sleep just fine once I had gone to the bathroom. I also cleaned out Missy's litter box...and yes, she had missed the box and wet on the little bathmat. I put the other larger one under the litter box and put the small one in the washer. When she does the larger one, I will wash them both. Old cat! She's as bad as I am except I don't miss my stool!

I have made the trundle bed up and put it away. I have also fed Missy and myself and finished the crossword puzzle from last evening's Reporter.

I will drive this morning and pick up Bob. After lunch, I will go out to Asbury Village for the Bunco party. I missed Bingo last Wednesday. I just had too much to do. We will have tuna cakes and friend potatoes and corn at lunch today. Bob will bring his salad.

I want to get a banana nut bread mix for Sunday evening when I have the kids here for the gift exchange. I will also get some Brahms eggnog. It won't be anywhere near as good as Leslie's but it will be the best commercial eggnog around here. I will have the banana nut bread and eggnog and the remainder of the peanut clusters. I gave away my cookies to the neighbors and unless I find time to bake more, we will not have cookies.

My hands have hurt some lately. It's probably the change in the weather. I don't take anything for it. It isn't that bad.

Strange...since I cancelled my cable, now my internet is $28.99....down from $34.99. I wonder what that's all about? Also, I am supposed to be paying $10.00 a month extra for the service I get every Tuesday when Cox checks out my computer for errors. That was not on the bill either. I'm not complaining! I'm just making an observation. I had them add my new little notebook to the service. They will handle 4 different computers for that $10.00 a month. I had them take that broken ruined Dell off the account. The post office ruined it when Keith sent it back to me. It was packed in bubble wrap and bubbles and should have been fine.

More later...

I picked up Bob and attended exercise class and  then we came on back home. I am very tired for some reason. I will start dinner in about 45 minutes and then go to Bunco at 2:00.

I located my Chase account and arranged to pay that bill too.  I want to keep my bills caught up as soon as I can.

I want to get the makings for my banana nut bread sometime before Sunday and get that made up Sunday morning and get my eggnog too. If I can find time, I will bake cookies again too.

I am washing the bathmats now. When I got home I put them and the other small stuff like Missy's afghans in the washer. I hope to get it all dry before lunch.

More later...

Dinner was fine. Bob is going to see Dr. Eslicker in Bartlesville and I am going along too. Afterward we will go to the new strip mall and look it over. Then we will eat at McCallister's.  It's been awhile since we've done that.

I had to put the bathmats back in the dryer. They didn't get dry before lunch. They are too heavy.

In about 45 minutes I will leave for Asbury Village and Bunco.

Miss Kitty is napping behind me on the daybed.

More later....

I went to Asbury Village and played Bunco and then came home and took it easy. About 4:45 Bob came over and we had ice cream. The ice cream made him start coughing again so I made up a cup of hot tea. That stopped the coughing.

He left shortly after 6:00 and I took my bath and lay down with Missy on the sofa and watched a movie on Amazon.

At 8:45, Missy and I went to bed. I was very tired.

We thought about cancelling our phone with Cox and just having the tv and internet. They explained that would leave us without bundle privileges and no savings! Doesn't seem quite right. Glad you are getting a break. Ours is way too high but it's our only entertainment. (No smoking, drinking or going out with boys who do.) An old joke.

I stream movies and TV shows through Amazon Prime through a Tivo my son gave me. Amazon Prime costs my $98 a year and that is a lot cheaper then the TV I was paying $116.00 for and that was for the very basic basic and the internet. The router and the Tivo pick Amazon Prime up.

I got the landlady to put an antenna in the attic but it doesn't do much. I get four religious stations and three CBS stations but that does give me the news. We have too many trees in the way. I get the local weather on my computer. I can also get PBS on my computer to watch Brooks and Shields and their political commentary on Friday evenings. I can also get CNN on my computer.

Margie you'd visited me and mentioned Corgi puppies and I've been watching The Crown on Netflix / those are the same breed ( as far as I know ) that the Queen had :)

The queen still has corgis. I think 6 of them at least.

Margie's Musings said...

That's true! The queen loves Corgis.
