I slept very well again last night.I woke twice to go to the bathroom after drinking a lot of water after giving blood yesterday. But I got right back to bed and right back to sleep.
I have made my bed and dressed for the day. I am having my breakfast now.
I am thinking of making another flowerbed in the front yard. Outside of the hanging plants, there is not much color there. I would like to make it around the mailbox where it would get full sun. I would get some more of those red bricks to line it. I will have to borrow a shovel to dig it.
I also want to borrow Janet's hedge trimmer to trim the hedge out front. She says she has two electric ones and I can borrow one. I will check on that Wednesday when I go over there for my hair appointment. I wish I had picked it up last Wednesday while I was there for Bunco but I forgot.
All three cats are out there now eating their breakfast. They act like they haven't eaten in a week but they were just here last night for supper.
It's 7:12AM ...much later then I usually am drinking my Chai. I am watching the CBS Saturday morning news now on TV. I haven't even watched "the weather on the 8's" yet. It looks like a pretty day so far.
John and Leslie have undoubtedly left for Nauvoo, Illinois now. They will be working with a group on our historical properties. They did that once before several years ago. I think they will be gone a week. John's brother-in law will be watching the farm and feeding the animals. Karan has the two house dogs, Kiki and Mini for the week.
It's 8:38AM now and I am thinking of mowing the front yard again. I did it last Monday but there is rain forecast for next Monday and Tuesday and I don't want it to get away from me. It is damp right now so I will wait and see if it dries out some later this morning. After it does. I will mow the front again. Then this afternoon, I will mow the back again.
It's 9:45AM and I just started mowing the front yard. I got about three swipes done and am pooped out. Evidently giving blood yesterday took a lot more out of me then I thought. I guess I will have to work at it fifteen minutes at a time to get it done.
I got three more swipes done and now I am going to have to rest for 15 minutes again. It's amazing how tired I get after just three swipes at it. It's 10:00AM now and I will wait until 10:15AM to start again.
It's 10:25AM now and I think I only have two more strips to go. I emptied the grass catcher bag this time and swept up the grass on the driveway that didn't make it in the bag. I'll wait until 10:40AM to finish and then after I rest up I will go to the Caney Market and get the groceries I will need for the the week. I will certainly have my exercise for the morning. It depends on the heat this afternoon whether I get the back yard done. It's 71 degrees now...not bad.
It's 10:50AM and I have the front yard finished.
I will rest up a bit and drink some water before going to the market. While I am there I want to see if they carry that Nestle flavored water. I found an unopened bottle of that in the passenger's side pocket of my car. Bob Avery probably put it there. I like the grape flavor.
I did got to the Caney Market and I did find that grape flavored water. I also bought some other groceries on my list.
I read the rest of the afternoon and watched the CBS evening news too. It is 6:15PM now and I am nearly ready to take my bath. I plan to go to bed at 9:00PM again.
