Saturday Breakfast

We went to breakfast this morning as is our habit on Saturday mornings. It was good as usual.

I read most of the day and finished my book.  My right leg has hurt most of the day so I have elevated it and that helped. I fixed leftover tuna noodle casserole for lunch. Our neighbor, Marilyn brought us some German chocolate cake and we will have that with our wine this evening.

I weeded my smaller flowerbed this afternoon too.  I sat out in the carport to do my reading. I also watered my plants in front of the carport . It had rained last night but evidently it came from a direction so the rain missed the plants.

More later.. I want to watch the Belmont race.

California Chrome did not win the Belmont.  I  was hoping he would.  But I guess it would have been too much to ask.

Bob came over and we watched the race and then searched for something else to watch besides reruns of The Big Bang Theory.  We both got very tired and he left to go home.

Another Exercise Friday

I didn't sleep much better last night and I took two Aleve too. I awoke at 3:00 with a sore right leg again.  I tried sleeping in the recliner but that didn't work.  So I went back to bed and tried counting my breaths. Finally I got back to sleep and slept until nearly 6:00 AM. Shortly after I got up, Bob called. He didn't see my lights over here so he thought he'd better check.

I wasn't supposed to take any anti inflammatory meds two weeks before my eyelid surgery on Tuesday but I've lost so much sleep lately because of pain in my right leg that I took it anyhow.

We are forecast another storm today and especially tonight. Some of the storm is supposed to be severe. We'll see.

I'm going to call Aime later this morning and see if I can delay my appointment with her this next week since I am scheduled for the eyelid surgery on Tuesday. By Thursday I may not even be able to drive yet.  Hopefully, that won't be a problem for her.

More later...

Rainy Thursday

It rained this morning...all morning. It was supposed to hail but the hail never developed.  It was also supposed to have 60 or 70 mile an hour winds too but they didn't develop either. I sat out on the carport and watched the rain. The skies were dark but that was the worst of it.

Later I saw online that my Blue Cross/Blue Shield had come out of the wrong account. It was supposed to come out of Bank of America but it came out of Community State Bank instead.  After the weather cleared up I went up to Bank of America and closed the account and picked up the money I had left in thee for that reason. 

Then I came home and read until time to fix our hamburgers and french fries.  We had chocolate pudding for dessert.

After Bob left I took a nap. I had started my dishwasher after we ate and when I woke up at 2:30, it was still washing.  I moved it ahead and it finally finished. I imagine I will have to get a repair man myself. Every time we need a service call for anything, Martha threatens us with another rent raise.

I worked on Sunday's sermon in the afternoon. Then I mowed the front yard and my side yard.  The rain had made it grow very fast and it looked terrible. I was very hot after that. I got some ice water and rested after that.

Bob came over after the news and we watched The Big Bang Theory.  After he went home I took my bath and put my pjs on.  Then I watched "The 60's" on CNN.

More tomorrow when we go to exercise class.

We will have tuna noodle and pea casserole and cottage cheese and applesauce tomorrow. I have some frozen strawberries for dessert too.

Wednesday Exercises Again

I didn't sleep well last night so I don't feel very well this morning...just tired and achy. I will go to exercise class though and then later this morning...toward noon...Bob and I will go over to Cherryvale to Just Us...for lunch.  Then I will try to get a nap this afternoon.

We will have hamburgers and french fries tomorrow noon.  I will put the hamburger in the frig to thaw.

I let Missy out this morning and was going to sit out with her but she did some growling and wanted back in. Apparently the tom cat had been over and left his scent.  She did not want to be out there.

She is restless this morning. It is thundering too. We may get some more rain today.

More later...

We went to eat at Just Us and it was very good. Then I came home and took a short nap. After that I got up and made some homemade ice cream with my little tabletop ice cream maker. We will have some with our wine this evening if Bob comes over. It was soft serve so I put it in Tupperware and put it in the freezer so it will be harder by evening.

More even later.....

Tuesday Hairdo Day

I go to Independence today to get my hair done. I should have washed it Saturday night but never got around to it.

I went to bed at 8:30 last night. I was just so tired I couldn't keep my eyes open. 

I did step outside yesterday afternoon and take a couple of photos of my two flowerbeds.  They have really filled out since the rains. Here they are in May.

The lower one needs to be weeded and I should pull the grass out of it and  finish mulching it. It too has filled out since this photo was taken in May.

Now these are the June photos.

More later....

While I was on my way to the beauty shop this morning the Apex air conditioning people called to see if they could service our air conditioners. I told him I would be back about 10:30 or so but then I called Bob to use his key to let the man in. He got my air conditioner serviced at last.  I have used it unchecked for a month.

Bob came over just before noon and we had our beans and cornbread for lunch. I took some over for Bobby too. He will have them for supper this evening. Bob and I will go over to Just Us tomorrow. It's been awhile since we've been there. 

Marilyn just came over. He had left our filters since he did not think they were bad enough to change just now.  He washed out her unit but could not check her filter since she was not home.

I lay down a bit this afternoon and napped a little.  Missy was in under the coverlet so she didn't lay on my lap.

Monday Exercises Again

I slept well last night. I got up about 4:45 and started my laundry. I needed to wash Missy's green afghan. She had been lying on it for a couple of weeks in the wicker chair and it was covered in cat hair.  She wants to go outside but I won't let her out until it is light. Besides, it's raining out there, I believe. I heard thunder in the night and I believe I heard it again awhile ago. We could sit on the carport but I want it to be light out. There are two other cats in the neighborhood and I don't want Missy to have any more trauma.

We will have chicken tenders for lunch today. I will need to get some milk for our potatoes. I'll do that before exercise class. Braums, where I get my milk, is only a block away.

I will need to clean and vacuum this morning before lunch. I also want to wash the kitchen and bathroom floors.

I lost the woman who was going to do Junior Church at church camp next month. Her boys are in baseball that week, And I really don't know where else to turn. I asked  the woman who helped her last year but she feels incompetent to do it alone and the other helper is having a baby that week so she can't help either. I am about out of options. I still don't have a campfire leader or a song leader either and the camp is just over a month away. It's a quandary and if I go back to work, I will not be free to go either and I am the director. I am just playing this by ear.  Until people start registering, I don't even know who else I can ask.

More later....

Aime, the woman who directs the SER Corporation program for seniors, called me back this afternoon to see if I was still interested in a job. I told her that I was. She set me up with an appointment with her on June12th at the library. I am having my eyelid surgery on June 10th so it will be interesting to see what my eyelids will look like after just two days.

This may change everything about directing the camp.  If I can't get off work for that Friday, Monday and Tuesday, Melissa may have to step up and direct it.

This will be interesting.

I will be bringing the message again at church this Sunday too. I may post that sermon too.

Busy Sunday

Yesterday Bob and I went to Bartlesville to Sunfest so I never got around to blogging. We stopped on the way back and bought meat at Pecks. We got three pounds of ground beef and a package of quarter pound hamburger patties.

This morning I attempted to print off my sermon using the new laptop and I found that the printer is offline. I haven't been able to get it back online on this laptop but the desktop is online with it so I printed it off with that. Keith is too busy right now to help me. But no big deal. I can send anything I want printed to either the desktop or the other laptop  and they can print it off. That's what I did this morning.

The sermon went well. Afterward my daughter and son-in-law and Bob and I ate out at Great China in Independence.

Then I came home and did my Sunday letters.

I have been fooling with this laptop ever since. It's 4:00 now and I have not done another thing. :)

Later this evening Bob will come over for wine and we will watch Sixty Minutes and anything else decent we can find....there certainly isn't much.

When Keith got home he called and walked me through fixing the computer printer problem . It's so good to have an IT in the family.  Many thanks to Keith!
