Saturday and the Computer

I slept very well last night. I did wake up an hour earlier then usual and was up at 5:00AM. I dressed and got myself ready for the day and had my oatmeal and coffee and now my Chai.

I will stay home today and wait to see if Leslie finds a cord for the monitor.

When the library opens at 8:00AM I will go get another book or two. It seems all I can do in winter is read and clean and do games. Walking all around that gym at the college for the Farm and Home show yesterday really wore me out. But I found it interesting.

More later...

It's been a job but between my son and my daughter, they have my new computer set up! And I finally found a way to get into the blog. I had long forgotten my original password. It had been years since I set up the blog.

I haven't eaten anything since breakfast since I have been working on getting the names in my outlook account address book.

I had better go fix something. I would like to lose 10 pounds but not this way.

More later...

I fixed myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich..all I had eaten all day...tasted mighty good.

I turned the TV off after the news  and read the rest of the evening until bath time and bedtime. I went to bed at 9:00PM...very tired.

Friday and Farm and Home Show

I slept well last night and got up about 5:00AM. I dressed, fed myself and four cats and texted Bob to see how he did.

I will go over to Coffeyville again for the Farm and Home Show at 1:00PM this afternoon at the college. I will also return the library book I took out last Wednesday. I got it read yesterday. While I am in the area, I will take the tea towels out to the church. I washed them this week. I will also take the food I could not use from Walmart's Distribution Center to Sycamore Landing for their "free" table for low income people.

More later.....

I got the apartment vacuumed and the bare floors washed this morning.  It looks much better now. I will leave soon to go to the Home Show over to Coffeyville.  So I will get back to this later...

I walked all over the home show and it was a big one. I picked up some registrations for gifts, etc but they won't draw for them until after tomorrow. I stopped at Sonic and had a kids meal for my lunch before I went to the Home Show.

When I got home I had the new CPU from Keith. It was well packed  and looked good. However I couldn't find my power cord or the monitor's power cord either. Leslie is going to see if she still has one of each in her attic. If not, she will buy one of each of them in Bartlesville tomorrow.  I will repay her for her expense if she has to do that. She will drop by tomorrow after she gets what she needs for John in Bartlesville and see if she can get the desktop computer going for me. It's nearly 6:00PM and I am exhausted from trying to find everything I thought I had in one place. I did take all those empty boxes out that I had kept in the storage closet and threw them in the trash.

I see on the news that Tulsa has their first case of confirmed Coronavirus. 

I will watch the news now, take my bath at 7:00PM and go to bed at 9:00PM. If I wasn't so tired, I would climb up in the attic and look some more. There's always a chance that those cords ended up in the attic with the Christmas decorations.


I hate being a bother to my kids. I guess it goes with the mileage.

I read all evening and at 7:00PM, I took my bath and then went on to bed at 9:00PM. I was very tired.

Thursday and A Good Night's Sleep

For once, I slept well. The arm did not hurt least it didn't interfere with my sleep. I read all evening and did my posting earlier in the day. That evidently helped.

It's my usual cleaning day but I think I will wait until tomorrow to do that. My arm feels pretty good today and I want to enjoy that.

I had three cats that came for their breakfast this morning. There were two gray cats and one yellow one.

More later....

I read this morning until Nancy called and wanted to go to breakfast at Copan. I decided that breakfast could just as well be lunch so I picked her up and that's where we went. I brought home some of mine. That was a huge breakfast. Nancy picked up the tab. She said it was her idea and I drove. We had a good visit and I stayed at her house until 2:00PM then I came home and read all afternoon until the news came on. It's 5:00PM now.

I read after the news and took my bath at 7:00PM and finished the book and then went on to bed at 9:00PM

Wednesday and a Big Full Game Day

I texted Bob this morning to see that he was awake. He was. I asked him to go to breakfast with me and he agreed.  I picked him up shortly before 7:00AM and we ate at Eggberts there in Coffeyville.

After I took him home I went to my hair appointment. Then I went to Walmart and bought two of my coffeecake mixes with the $10.00 gift card I won in the last Bunco game. I have a couple of dollars left on the card. I had the prizes this month and I delivered them to the three winners.

Then I went to the library to read. I checked out a book there too. I will get it read and then take it back next Wednesday.I had a kids meal at Sonic for lunch. We finished the Bunco game at 3:00PM, had our treats and  I came on back home. I had a good time.

I will get back to this later....

I read all evening and fed the four cats and took my bath at 7:00PM and later went to bed at 9:00PM. It was a big day!

Tuesday and a Disaster

This morning Nashville was hit by a tornado and badly devastated. Scott  and Ginger live at Gelatin and did not get hit. It is north of Nashville. I managed to reach Scott and Ginger as both of them are on their way to work in Nashville. Ginger teaches at a college there and Scott is in charge of security at Central Defense Securities in Nashville. Hopefully neither place were hit. German town seems to be the worst area hit.  Downtown Nashville was badly hit. So far 7 people are dead. I have dressed and had my breakfast and turned on the TV and that is where I found the news about the tornado. I guess it hit Nashville about 1:00:AM this morning. And I notice six people have died from the coronavirus, all in King County and one person had died in Snohomish County.

And I talked to my bank and they assured me that two of those transactions  were debits and I would be charged for just one transaction. Just to be sure, I transferred another $100 from my savings into my checking account.  That will save me another trip to Dewey. I will not use that service station again.

The death toll from the tornado is up to 19 now.

More later... .

I read this afternoon on the book I had on my phone and finally finished it. About 2:45PM, I did what little laundry I had.I also went out to Sonic and had a mini Sonic Blast.  I will try not to use my right arm too much since typing seems to make it hurt...especially is I do it in the afternoon. I read again until 7:00PM and then took my bath. At 9:00PM, I went on to bed.

Monday and Another Poor Night's Sleep

I slept poorly last night and was awake off and on all night. I had even taken two Aleve. But my right shoulder and arm ached most of the night. Today I will look for my heating pad and may just have to buy another one. Joanne, Bob's girlfriend, says that helps hers. She has the same problem.

I don't have a plan for today. I do have some laundry I could do. I haven't seen the local forecast yet. It's only 6:55AM
More later...

I watched the news until 10:AM and then I went out to Dollar General to buy some wrapping paper. I wrapped Maia's birthday gift with that. Then I read the rest of the morning until I finished my second book. After I got my mail and the City of Caney bill, I scheduled it to be paid on March 12th.  Now I have cooked my lunch and will stop and have that.

More even later...

I had my lunch and then drove down to Dewey to get some gas. I bought it at a new Sinclair station and they tried to "help"  me and ended up making things worse. They caused me to be charged three times for the same tank of gas. As soon as the bank opens in the morning I will call them and try to get this mess taken care of.

I drove back down to Dewey about 6:00PM when I saw the mess they had made of it but there was no owner there at that time and the clerk was different and could/would not help me. So I will try to deal with the bank instead in the morning.

I watched a little TV until time to take my bath at 7:00PM and went to bed at 9:00PM

Sunday and Church

I slept better last night. I got up about 5:00AM after I heard a loud bang right outside my bedroom on the west side of the apartment. I got up and dressed and had my breakfast and when it got light I went out to see what all that noise could have been.  I couldn't see a thing that could have caused it.


I got the coffeecake baked as muffins this time.  After they baked and cooled I glazed them.  Then I loaded up my car with everything I needed to take to church.

The sermon went alright. I am never really happy with them but I need to stay at it.  It's something I can do so I will as long as I can.

We ate at "Just Us" at Cherryvale..Bob, Phyllis and myself. We had a good nourishing meal with dessert.

Then I came home and got my newsletters done and out on the mailbox with the flag up.

Then I watched some of the programs I had recorded. After all of that, it was after 7:00PM and I needed to feed the cats again and get my bath done so I will be ready for bed at 9:00PM.

Another big day!
