Saturday and Storm Warnings

As I was charging my phone in the kitchen last evening while I was reading, I had a series of spam calls. I blocked them as they came in. I let the phone ring until it hung up and then blocked those calls.

I went to bed at 10:00PM for a change and just before I went to sleep the phone pinged. I had had several messages supposedly from US Cellular telling me I had used all my text time and after several times getting that message, I blocked it too. Then I went to sleep. In the morning I saw I had a message so I got up and played it. It was Shirley Ann trying to reach me. I did not have her number in my phone so I had accidentally blocked her. I played her message. I am to call her back this morning.  She is in charge of the women's retreat in April. I will wait until 9:00AM to call her back. When I went in the den this morning to check my e-mail, I saw that we are until storm warnings until 10:00AM this morning. Always something!

I don't have a plan for today. Tomorrow, if we have church, (and we surely will), I will make my coffeecake again. I don't believe Bob is going to do his pumpkin bread or banana nut bread anymore.  Karan won't be there. She has gone to Kansas city to be with her daughter while her daughter has surgery. So if the library is open on Saturday, I will get some more books...if we are not having a storm.

So more later...I will get dressed and then eat my breakfast. At 9:00AM I called Shirley Ann. I discovered she had tried to call me last night but since I did not have her number in my directory, I had blocked her. She wanted me to take a small group at the woman's retreat in April and my these is supposed to be "Justice". I have followed the Innocence Project since it's inception so I thought thta might be something I could share besides the scripture in Micah.

I had my breakfast and got myself ready for the day. It is terribly windy today so I won't go out except to go to the library again.

I worked awhile on that class I am supposed to offer in April.

I ended up going to the library later in the day and getting another book. I began reading it in the afternoon. 

I did go out to Dollar General and buy some trail mix. I ate the whole thing and then had to take a Tums, Too much I guess. :)

At 7:00PM, I took my bath and got ready for bed. .When my recorded programs were recorded, I put down the book and watched 48 hours and 20/20. At 9:00PM, I went on to bed. I forgot to turn the clocks up an hour for the time change.

Friday and Lunch with Friends

I slept very well last night. I woke up a couple of times but got back to sleep and got up at 4:45. I had had plenty of sleep.

I got myself ready for the day and ate my oatmeal for breakfast and had my coffee. Gay and her friends will be coming for lunch at Pizza Hut then they will come to my apartment to see what I have done with it.

I talked to Nancy last evening. She had been sick again all day until evening when she began to feel better. She had an appointment with Melissa at Labette emergency room on Tuesday but her cousin, Dale, heard about it and cancelled it. That would infuriate me if someone did that to me. Nancy has been sick off and on for months and really needs to find out what is causing her constant sickness to her stomach.  I tried my best to get her to let me take her to the emergency room to see the doctor...any doctor... but her family is determined to run her life.

If it isn't David, it's Dale. She hasn't heard from David since she had to cancel her flight to their place at Christmastime because of terrible diarrhea. He seemed to think she just didn't want to come. And he has been angry with her since she refused to let him put her into assisted living last summer. She wants to live in her own home until she dies. I try to call her every day just to be sure she's still o.k. You can't help folks that don't want to be helped.

Anyhow, Gay and her friends will be here at 11:30 and I will meet them at Pizza Hut then.

More later...

Gay called awhile ago and changed our meeting place to Eggberts. Two of her friends had health problems and could not eat pizza.  So, at 11:30AM this morning I will go to Eggberts to meet her and her friends.

I finished the first of my latest books. I will save the second one until this evening.

I met the eight of them at Eggberts and we ordered our lunches. It took awhile for our orders to be ready but we each had a good meal. Then the eight of them came to my apartment and looked around. They seemed to be very impressed. They stayed thirty or forty minutes and then left to go through our shops that have lots of interesting "stuff" in them. There are a couple of them here. I really didn't want to spend any more money so I didn't go.

I will read my second book this afternoon and evening. I watched  the dateline show I had recorded and am also recording 20/20 and I will watch it later.

I also ordered my meals from Schwan's. I have ordered their chicken pot pies and breakfast burritos. . They are very good and just the right size for a meal for one. The breakfast burritos will be a change from my usual oatmeal for breakfast.

More even later...

I also ordered three boxes or Keurig flavored coffees.  The ones I am getting from Amazon are not the flavored coffees.

I turned off the TV and read that last book all evening and took my bath about 7:00PM and then went to bed at 10:00PM. If the library is open tomorrow I may take them back tomorrow.

Thursday and House Cleaning Day

I slept well last night. I woke up once in the night and while up I took a melatonin tablet and then I slept on until 5:00AM.  That was when I am usually up.  I dressed and got ready for the day and had my breakfast and read the online Chronicle.

I will clean the apartment today. This is my usual cleaning day.

Maybe I will start  that second book too. I probably need to dust today too. Gas heating is not as clean as electric heating although it's a lot cheaper. I have had all three of my utilities now. The electric bill was $53.82, the water and trash was 84.94 and the gas bill was 72.12. The three of them together were cheaper then just my electric bill in Coffeyville.

It's almost 7:00AM now. I will watch the news before I begin cleaning. Gay and her friends will be coming tomorrow at 11:30AM and we will all eat lunch at the Pizza Hut.  They want to see my new apartment.

So, more later...

I got the apartment cleaned and then read the rest of the morning until I finished the second book. Then I ate my lunch and afterward took the two books back to the library and picked out two more. It is now 3:25PM and I have read the newspapers and done the crossword puzzle too.

I may start one of the new books.

I did start one of the new books. I read until 7:00PM when I took my bath and got ready for bed. At 9:00PM, I put the book down and went to bed.

Wednesday and Back to Coffeyville

I slept fitfully last night. I don't know why. I read until bedtime and did not have the TV on. I finally got up at 4:00AM and just ate my breakfast and watched the weather.

About 9:15, I will leave for Coffeyville. My hair appointment is at 10:00AM and then I want to get my pedicure after that. I will eat lunch somewhere in Coffeyville (I am sure Eggberts is still closed. Their note said they didn't know exactly when they would reopen)  So I am not sure where I will eat. Afterward, I will go on to Bunco. Then I will come back home. I will be pretty tired by then. It's not quite 6:00AM now.

More later....

I left on time to get to my appointment and I also took the rest of that frozen roast to Bob and Joanne. Then afterward I ate at Long John Silvers. I had more food then I could eat so I discarded some of my coleslaw. Afterward I went on to get my pedicure. I really needed that. It had been months. Then I went to the senior center and played Bunco with those that were there.  There were six of us that showed up.

After the game, I came on back home and watched the news and read the rest of my book. I still have one more book to go before I take them back to the library.

At 7:00PM, I took my bath and got ready for bed. At 8:45PM, I went on to bed. It had been a big day.

Tuesday and a Trip to Coffeyville

I slept well last night. I got up at 5:00AM, my usual rising time, got myself ready for the day and then watched a little weather while I waited for time to leave. I fixed myself some coffee. I will have breakfast with Bob this morning. He contacted me last evening. I will take him my cake. He will be taking the cakes to Independence later this morning around 9:00AM.  I will stop at the bank before I pick him up and get my cash for the week. My hair appointment this week is tomorrow. Toni had to change it because she will be in Tulsa today.

I will get gas while I am over there today. I may stop at the Dollar General store too and get the three things that are on my list too.

Tomorrow while I am over there again for my hair appointment, I will eat lunch there and then go to play bunco at the senior center at 1:00PM.

Now I will go watch the weather channel until 7:00AM when I will leave for Coffeyville.

More later....

I got over to Coffeyville took my cake over and also picked Bob up for breakfast. We went to Eggberts but they were closed. They have plumbing problems. So we went to Brahms.  It was o.k. but nothing great. After I took him home and gave him my cake, I went to Woodshed and bought gas and then on to Walmart and bought some groceries. I stopped at their Dollar General and bought a birthday card for Maia. Her birthday is the 14th. Then I came on back home. I wanted to get a pedicure but didn't want to wait around for them to open. I had done that last Tuesday and waited 15 minutes for them to open and they never did.

More later...

I called and they are open. I told the man there that I would be in shortly after 10:00AM for my pedicure.  I really need one. My nails look terrible.

It's 4:00PM now and I have been reading all afternoon. I have a Patterson book or two and they have substance. The library is closed today for some employee meeting.  It will be a couple of days before I can get through these two books though.

I have been having bouts of indigestion lately and am going through some Tums each day. I don't know what the deal is. I generally don't have a problem with indigestion.  In an hour or so, I will eat some yogurt. That generally sets well.

I had my yogurt and turned off the TV and read the rest of the evening.  At 7:00PM I took my bath and went to bed shortly after 9:00PM as usual.

Monday and Another Short Night

I went to bed too early again last night. I was very tired after a big day and I went to bed at 8:15.  Then I woke up at 3:00AM and lay there and slept off and on until 4:00AM when I just gave up and got up.

I have dressed and had my breakfast and  am ready for the day. I will bake my cake this morning  and get it over to Bob in the morning. My hair appointment has been changed this week to Wednesday so that will be an extra trip. The trip to Joplin on Saturday used quite a bit of the week's gas. Then, of course, yesterday I went to church over there on Turkey Farm Road, which is north and west of Coffeyville. So while I am there, I will go out to Woodshed and fill up again.

There was a rash of tornadoes in Alabama and Georgia last night.  My youngest granddaughter lives in Georgia and I am concerned that she is alright. Scott says she picks up the phone when she feels like it and when he tried to call her last night, she did not pick up.

I never did get around to blogging yesterday  I read and watched the tornado reports all around Georgia and Alabama but finally just went on to bed.

More later...

I baked my cake for tomorrow and will ice it after it cools. Tomorrow I will take it over to Bob and put it in his car trunk.  I will pick him up for breakfast tomorrow after I go to the bank. I am nearly out of cash.

I put together two new Crossroads Church  Directories for Karan to sew together the booklets this morning and then I called Nancy to see if she wanted to go to lunch. That seemed to appeal to her too so I swung by and picked her up. We went out to Eggberts and had one of their chicken salad luncheons and coffee. It was good...and this time Nancy picked up the tab.  I dropped her off at her home and she wanted me to come in... so I did and stayed until 3:00PM. We had a good visit.

I will read the rest of the afternoon and try to get these two books back to the library this afternoon if I finish this second one.

I did finish that second book and took both of them back to the library and got two Patterson books. I watched Amazon Prime all evening until 7:00PM when I took my bath and got ready for bed. I waited until after the show was over at 9:00PM to go to bed though.
