Thursday and the Hearing.

I  slept well last night and didn't get up until 5:00. I fed Missy and after I got ready for the day,  Bob A. called to ask if I wanted to go to breakfast with him. I did... so he picked me up and we went to breakfast at Eggberts. After he brought me home we packed up some coffee for him since he was nearly out.

I then took Missy outside but it was way too chilly at 43 degrees. We came back in. I washed the kitchen and bathroom floors. Cyndi will be coming this morning to vacuum for me. I wanted to be ready for her.

I have CBS on this morning to watch the hearing for Dr. Blasey Ford..

I'll get back to this later..

Cyndi came about 12:30PM and did my vacuuming. I watched the hearing all morning and most of the afternoon until time to go to the Book Club at the library and talk about the book of the month "A Farewell to Arms".

After I got back home, I ran my car through the car wash before I came home to clean it off. When I got home I took my bath and turned on Amazon Prime TV so I could watch Forensic Files with Missy until bedtime.

I will pack in the morning for the Priesthood Retreat. Karan and Leslie will pick me up at10:00AM. I asked Bob A. if  he would feed Missy her treats tomorrow evening and clean out her litter box and then come back Saturday morning and give her her treats and breakfast and be sure she had water and clean out her litter box and he said he would do that.

I will be leaving for that priesthood retreat at 10:00AM  in the morning so I had better get some sleep.. 

Missy and I went to bed about 9:00PM.

Wednesday and Juanita's Checkbook and Game Day

I slept pretty well last night but then at 4:00AM, Missy tried to wake me up by "stomping" on me. Darn cat! I imagine she wanted her breakfast. I managed to fend her off until 5:00AM

Then I got up and bribed her off the bed so I could make it up by offering her her treats. That worked! It usually does. Then I went ahead and fed her while I was in the kitchen. I came back to the bedroom finished making up the bed, and dressed and got myself ready for the day.

I have been sneezing my head off lately. It's my allergies! I have to have Kleenex around all the time. After it freezes, that will help a lot. But the first hard freeze is awhile away. In the meantime, I sneeze a lot.

I'd better put a hiatus on this and get my own breakfast now. Today will be a busy day. Mid morning I will go up to Independence and balance Juanita's checkbook.  Then get back home in time for game day at the senior center after lunch.

It will be another busy day!

I have had my breakfast and coffee and am working on my Chai Latte now.

When it gets light I will take Missy out.  She loves to go outside.

More later...

After I finished Juanita's checkbook and went out to my car to come home, I could not get the car to start again. I tried five or six times and finally it started. Then I came on home and got ready for the game day.  When I got into the car to go to town, I tried again to start the good. Finally after several tries, the motor turned over and I went on to game day. When I got there, I called Gary and told him about it and he said he and Brandon would come get the car and try to find out what it was. After about twenty minutes, they arrived and I gave Gary the key. After fifteen minutes or so, Gary came back in and said it started every time he tried it. He didn't charge me for his time.

I went to game day at the senior center and we played from 1:00PM until 3:00PM and then I came home.

When I came back home and had my dinner of yogurt and later took my bath and Missy and I watched some Amazon Prime on the TV. At 9:00, we went on to bed.

Tuesday and Hair Day and then Lunch with Nancy

I slept pretty well last night. I got up at 4:45AM. Got myself ready for the day and fed myself and Missy. She wants to go outside but it's just now getting light. It's 7:10AM and we are forecast for thick fog until 10:00AM.

We had a fog advisory this morning from the police department. Strange...I didn't find any fog. My hair appointment is at 9:00AM. After that, I plan to go to Caney and visit with Nancy if that advised fog has lifted.

Tomorrow may be game day at the senior center. If it is, I will try to attend.

This Thursday I will send out the notice for the Ministerial Alliance the 3rd. It will be held at the basement conference room at noon Thursday at the  hospital in October. The nursing director has some information she wants to share with us. They will also provide lunch.

I gave Missy the shot that Dr. Barta sent home with me. She has enough antibiotic for another day or two.

I tried to take Missy outside but there was a stray cat out there. I drove him into the culvert but Missy wanted to come back in since he was out there.  She is  obviously disappointed and going back on my bed to nap...she is dragging her tail behind her.

So far, I have TV this morning. It's only 72 degrees outside. That may have something to do with it.

My son, Scott, e-mailed me this morning after I contacted him to ask him what was going on in his life. He still doesn't like his job. I had hoped it might work out better after awhile. I guess he is toughing it out though.

More later...

I got my hair done and it feels so much better. By the weekend, it always needs washing again but I seldom do that.  I just tough it out until Tuesday.

Now, it's pretty much time to leave for Caney so...... more later this afternoon.

I spent the day with Nancy and we had lunch at Eggberts again. I got home about 4:15.  We had a good visit though.

I have given Missy her treats and filled her water bowl. In a little while I will eat my yogurt.

I had my yogurt and an ice cream bar and at 7:00 I took my bath and watched Amazon Prime with Missy until 9:00, when we went to bed. I was very tired!

Monday and Laundry Day

I slept pretty well last night. Sometimes Missy disturbs my sleep by scratching on the coverlet.  I just say "Stop that, Missy!" and she stops but then I have to get back to sleep. I got up at 4:45AM this morning. But I got plenty of sleep since I went to bed at 8:45.

I got myself ready for the day and fed Missy and myself. I had some coffeecake left from yesterday's Church School class. I had some of that with my oatmeal. I had given some of it to Marilyn R too.

Today, I will wash Missy's two afghans and whatever is in the laundry basket. Right now she is in on the bed napping. She wants to go outside, as usual, but will have to wait until it gets light outside.
That may be a while. It's only a little after 6:00AM now.

More later....

I took  Missy out for awhile but she was determined to wander today so I picked her up and brought her back in the house. She is in on my bed now...napping.

I have been watching the news and the laundry is in the dryer now. I am not sure what I will do today.

I have nothing else on my schedule.Cyndi will be vacuuming on Wednesday sometime. She also has inventory in the Shoe Sensation store. She is supposed to be finished at 1:30 and if she can get away at that time, she will come do my vacuuming.

So more later....

I took Missy out again while it was still cool and this time she was fine.

Nancy finally called me later and I will go over to Caney after I get my hair done tomorrow morning and visit her.

She was sick for a week. I really think she needs to see a doctor but I imagine that is not going to happen.

I read in my new Readers Digest most of the afternoon and then took a drive.

I watched some Amazon TV this afternoon and after 7:00PM, I took my bath and got ready for bed and then watched the 60 Minutes program that ran yesterday evening. I could get that on Amazon Prime this evening.

Then I watched 48 Hours.

At 8:30PM I was ready to go on to bed. I was very tired.

Sunday and Church and a Coffee Cake

I slept well last night but I took an Aleve before I went to bed. That took care of the arm pain.  I only woke up once and took my med and a Melatonin tablet. I got right back to sleep. Missy curled up right next to me. I got up at 4:45, dressed for church and fed Missy and myself.

After the news, I will get my coffeecake in the oven. I imagine I will drive this morning since I have the coffeecake to take.

More later....

OK. I have the coffeecake in the oven now and have written my check for church. When it comes out of the oven, I will need to let it cool and then ice it. That will be awhile yet. It still has to finish it's bake.

More even later...

O.K. The coffeecake was finished and iced and I picked up Bob and Phyllis for church. It was a good service and afterward we went to Great China in Independence for lunch. I took my neighbor, Marilyn R., some of the leftover coffeecake and also my take home from Great China. She was going to go to get fast food and I thought that cashew chicken would be better.

I then came back home and worked on the newsletters for church and made up two more congregational directories for church. That took most of the afternoon. Karan came by and picked them up to sew them together.  Then I went to the Dollar General store and also out to Walmart. I needed an ink cartridge for my printer, half and half, and contact cleaner too.

Finally I went by Braums and bought some yogurt for my supper. 

I took my bath about 7:00 and watched some Amazon Prime with Missy until our usual 9:00PM bedtime.
