Saturday and Perhaps a Movie

I slept fitfully again last night. Again...too much fireworks! Too much noise. I got up several times in the night. I had a cramp in my big toe on my left foot. I took a couple Hyland Restful Legs tablets and put them under my tongue and within minutes the cramps were gone. I keep that stuff on hand all the time.  Sometimes it's my legs too or even my feet that cramp.

I was up shortly before 6:00AM this morning and made my bed and dressed for the day. I tried to call Nancy twice yesterday but she never answered the phone either time. I don't know what the problem is. I imagine she was asleep..she sometimes sleeps to escape the real world. She has been terribly worried about David. He is improving..slowly.

I have had my breakfast bar and oatmeal and am working on my coffee now. It is 6:14AM and soon I will go turn on the weather channel and then check on the cats. I will get back to this later. Sometime today I will try to download that movie Scott was telling me about last night.

I watered my hanging plants and fed the one yellow cat that showed up for breakfast. It was Blondie.

Then I watched the movie Scott told me about. It was called the "Green Book" and was based on a true experience and time in our history. 

Then I called Nancy again and this time she was awake. I have a jigsaw puzzle she wants to work. I took it over to her. We visited awhile and Samantha was there to fix her lunch and make sure she took her meds. Nancy wants to see the movie I watched this morning so I will go get her at 2:00PM and we will watch it here on Amazon Prime.. I bought the movie.

I went to the Caney Market and bought fried fish and fried okra for my lunch. It was very good but a lot of fried food.

More later... 

I read most of the afternoon. I was so tired. I went to get Nancy at 2:00PM and brought her to the apartment to see the movie. Like me, she thoroughly enjoyed it. Then I took her home and came home after that. Samantha was there to see to her supper and evening meds. 

I went to bed early...about 8:30PM

Friday and Vacuuming

 I slept fitfully last night but still got up at nearly 6:00AM. I had a terrible time getting to sleep. The boys in the neighborhood shot off fireworks for hours and it was only the 1st of July. Nonsense!!!

I am up and dressed and have had my breakfast and put the solar kitty back out to absorb some rays again.  It continues to glow when I bring it in in the evening.

I will vacuum today. I never finished my cleaning yesterday. I was just too tired. Now, though, I will go turn on the weather and check out the cats.

I have fed three cats and watered all the outdoor plants. Now I am vacuuming. I have the bedroom done, the hall and the living room. After the next commercials begin, I will do the den and later the dining room. I have dusted some too.  

The biggest mess is cleaning up the vacuum. I have to empty the canister and then wash out the canister and the filters. There's always a wad of dirt to be emptied. I can't figure out where all that dirt comes from since I usually wear my slippers in the house. 

I have the apartment all cleaned now and even the canister of the vacuum. I am waiting for the filters to dry overnight before putting them back in.  The place shines. I am watching the CBS news between commercials. I clean while the commercials are on. It is 9:00AM now.

I went down to Bartlesville to Tate Boys to have  my tires rotated about 10:00AM .  They also did a front brake job. The back brakes were alright. I have six months to pay for that... without interest.  That shouldn't be a problem. I will pay $50.00 a month. It was $130.00.

Krystal came to mow again. Her daughter had a chance to go somewhere fun with a friend so Krystal is mowing again this time.  She does a very nice job!! Later after it cools down a bit I will trim. It's 3:12PM now.

I  got the trimming finished and it looks much better. It is almost 6:00PM now and I will take my bath soon. Then hopefully my Kindle will be charged enough for me to read it before bedtime. The thing seldom stays charged for an entire book.

More later...

It wasn't fully charged but I still managed to read until bath time. I took my bath around 7:00PM and went to bed at 8:30PM..I was exhausted for some reason!

Scott contacted me at bedtime to tell me to watch "Green Book" a movie that won the academy award that year. I was too tired to stay up to watch it this evening but will try to download it on Amazon Prime sometime tomorrow. It will be something different to do tomorrow.

Thursday and Apartment Cleaning

I slept pretty well last night and was only up once in the night. As usual, I was up at 5:00AM. I have dressed for the day, made my bed and myself too. I will probably clean least mop the floors/ I had the hanging plants in last night to protect them from the hard rain. I put them back out this morning. I haven't had the forecast on yet this morning. 

After I took out the  plants I fed the three yellow cats. The neighbor's big yellow cat ran off the other two. I brought in the food. I hate feeding the neighbor's cat.  They need to feed him at home.

I have had my breakfast and washed the dishes. In a bit, I will go turn on the TV and watch the weather and the CBS news. I sure miss the notebook. I could post and watch the TV at the same time with it. Maybe I should look into buying a new battery for the laptop in the den. Right now, in order to get the signal I have to use a USB plug in and keep it plugged into the desktop computer. I only have one plug in for the entire room and I have a multi plug in that one.

I guess I will go watch the weather now. More later.... Looks like we may have a few days of sunshine in the next week. I am ready for that.

Blondie, who didn't get enough to eat before being chased away, came back while I was sweeping off the walk and drive. I brought out his bowl again and he is eating out there now. Poor cat. Being chased away by a cat who has an owner is disgusting.

I guess I will put the solar kitty back out to catch some rays.

I worked on the puzzle until 1:30PM  the I realized I hadn't even eaten any lunch. So I stopped then and heated up my sandwich from Monday and had that.

I went out to Dollar General and bought some more wet swifters.  I got part of the apartment mopped before I ran out of wet swifters. I may just vacuum tomorrow. I have nothing else going on then.

I may just read this afternoon. I worked on the puzzle all morning besides what mopping I got finished.. 

More later... 

Another puzzle finished: It was a doozy too! Took me nearly all day.

It's 4:57PM now. I will finish my housework tomorrow. Now I will read awhile before turning on the news.

I had some strawberry shortcake for an afternoon snack. Yum!

More later...

I read after the news was over and took my bath at 7:00PM and then read some more . It's 9:15PM now and I will go to bed as soon as I put this blog on Keith's blog site.

Wednesday and My Hair Appointment

I slept well again last night and only woke up once to go to the bathroom. I was up at almost 5:00AM. I dressed and made up my bed and myself and fixed and ate my breakfast. I am drinking my coffee now. I will leave about 8:30AM for Coffeyville and my hair appointment. 

It's not light enough yet to check out the plants or the cats. It's almost 6:00AM now and beginning to get light out.

I just checked out the plants and the look pretty good. I guess I will go check out the cats now. So, more later...

Three cats were waiting for their breakfast.....all yellow ones. I fed them all.

I turned on the weather station and I had no weather channel. I called Cox, waited 10 minutes to reach a tech and then they wanted to send a tech out to check it 10:00AM this morning. The next appointment would be on Friday. I have a hair appointment in Coffeyville at 9:00AM today so, of course, today would not work for me. 

They had rebooted my cable box and after about ten minutes, I had the weather channel again.  


More later...

It's 7:06AM now. 

I got my hair done in Coffeyville and also got gas.  I went to Walmart for Chai Latte, make up remover and a large box of breakfast bars. Then I took the newspapers by Karan's and came back home. I stopped at Sonic and bought their Kid's Wacky Pack Wednesday special for $2.18 for my lunch. Then I came home and read and fed a cat or two.

Scott called me this morning and we had a nice long conversation. It was good to hear from him.

It's 2:30PM now and it's raining again. My hanging plants are still out there and I will keep an eye on them.

I tried to call Nancy but she did not answer. She is either asleep or sick again. I am staying in. I washed my car while in Coffeyville this morning, dried it and vacuumed it out. I'd like to keep it clean for awhile. 

It's 3:30PM now and it has stopped raining....I don't know for how long. I am keeping the little solar kitty in the den for right now. I brought it in awhile ago. 

I fixed my strawberries and may have some at my suppertime.

More later...

Just look at those flowers! The rain really helped them!

It's 6:20PM now and suddenly the rain started coming down again and very hard. During a lull, I ran out and brought the hanging baskets in and put them on dinner plates on the door rugs. This kind of hard rain would ruin them. I wonder about my lovely flower beds too but there's nothing I can do about them. I sure can't bring them in.

I will take my bath now and put my pjs on and read. I have been working on the latest jigsaw puzzle.  It's a doozy!

I plan to go to bed early..probably about 9:00PM.

Tuesday and a Trip to the Market Again

I slept well last night and didn't wake up but one time in the night. I got up at nearly 6:00AM which is late for me. I have dressed and got myself ready for the day.  I have even had my breakfast and it's nearly 7:00AM.

I looked out at my hanging plants and they appear to be pretty soaked from all the rain last night. Hopefully the sun will come out this morning and dry them out a bit. 

I haven't looked out for the cats yet or had the weather on either. I will do that shortly.

If Nancy is up to it this morning, I will pick her up at 10:00AM and we will go to the market.  I have three or four things on my list and she wants to get some groceries too.

Right now though, I will go turn on the TV and check out the weather and the cats.

More later.... 

Sure enough, the next three days rain is forecast...sometimes, heavy rain. I will be gone to Coffeyville in the morning to get my hair done and mail off the notebook to Keith.  I probably should bring in those hanging plants then or they may get ruined. I left them out last night and they are pretty soaked. I hope they have a chance to dry out today.

Only my neighbor's yellow cat came for breakfast and when Scruff tried to come eat too, he ran her off. Now she is back and I put the food back out for her. It's 7:37AM now.

I picked up Nancy at 10:00AM and we went to the market and bought a few groceries. The bananas weren't in yet so we bought everything else on the list and drove around town and looked at the houses that were run down and those that looked good. The we came back to my apartment  and I showed her my jigsaw puzzle that I am working on. When I finish it, I will give it to her and she can do it. 

Samantha called while Nancy and I were visiting  here at my apartment and reminded me that she was back at Nancy's house and wondered when I would be bringing Nancy back home. I forgot about Samantha and so I ran Nancy back home immediately. I will try to pick her up at 2:00PM so we can go back to the market and get our bananas. The truck hadn't come yet this morning with the bananas.

More later.... 

Nancy was waiting for a phone call from her cousin and didn't want to leave the house again. So I bought my own banana and hers too. She, of course, wanted to pay me back. Then I came on home.

I watched the CBS news and then read for awhile and took my bath and then broke up the puzzle I had just finished and will take it over to Nancy's for her to work. Then I began another one. I worked on it for awhile and then went back to my book until after 9:30PM when I went on to bed.

Monday and A Trip to Grove

I slept very well last night. I didn't wake up but once during the night and then went right back to sleep.

Leslie just called me and asked me if I wanted to go to Grove with her this morning. She's still trying to get the Grove church sold.  I was tickled. I was going to be bored to death another day with absolutely nothing to do but read.  It will be a nice chance to do something different too and visit with her. She must be off this morning and until Wednesday since she was on call last weekend. I will meet her at Tyro and leave my car there in the Tyro church parking lot.

More later...I need to check the weather and the cats. 

I only had one cat to feed this morning and I noticed that one spilled the cat food that was in the small dish. I had put out the double dish and a smaller dish. I scooped it up and put it back in the bowl and then put away the food and shut the garage door.  

I watched the weather and am waiting for the news now.  

Leslie contacted me about 9:30AM and was ready to meet me at Tyro. I grabbed my phone and took off. She met me about 10:00AM and I locked my car and got into hers. All the way to Grove she told me about the transaction on the sale of the Grove church. After she took care of her business at the abstract business, then we went to eat lunch. Afterward we went by the church and looked it over. Then left for home.

We got back to the Tyro church about 2:30PM and after I got home I read awhile in one of my new books. I finished that one about 4:10PM. 

It's 6:24PM now and I have been watching the CBS news. It's all about tat building that collapsed.

I have had my bath and plan to watch "Bull" this evening at 9:00PM and then go to bed.

Sunday and Church

I slept fitfully last night and was up shortly before 5:00AM, dressed and got myself ready for church. I  had brought in my hanging plants when it began to rain last night. I probably could have left them out last night. I was a light rain. Now I will need to water them for today or they may be dry today if it doesn't rain in the daytime. I set them back outside this morning.

I have had my breakfast bar and oatmeal and am now working on my coffee. In a little while, I will go turn on the weather channel. It's supposed to rain all week.

Karan is the speaker this morning at church. She is usually pretty good. The last time she spoke, she used a recorded message from the Ontario, Canada, church. I prefer a live speaker myself. If I wanted a recorded speaker, I would have stayed home and watched it on my desktop computer.

I am sending my notebook computer to Keith on Wednesday. I will send it UPS at the drugstore on Eighth street. I have it packed with bubble wrap and peanuts. I sent it that way when I sent him my Dell laptop a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, he sent it back by US Postal service and they must have thrown it off the truck because it was all broken up. He had packed it the same way I sent it to him so it was the post office's fault.

I will go turn on the TV and watch the weather channel. When it gets light I will go out and water the plants.  It's only a little past 6:00AM now.

It's raining lightly now so I won't have to water the plants after all. 

I was a little lightheaded but when I took my blood pressure, it was perfectly normal.  

I drove over to Coffeyville and went to the bank and got some money for  the week. Then I went on out to church and swept off the front as well as the inside where there were dead bugs. Kelly had sprayed and there were several dead bugs. As Leslie always says, when you build a church in the country you will have bugs.

Johnna was the speaker at church.  She did a good job. Afterward Phyllis and I and Rick and Carmen went to Sam's and had lunch. Then I dropped off Phyllis at church to get her car and came on back to Caney myself. I read awhile and even fell asleep in my chair while reading. It's 3:48PM now.

The rain has stopped.  It will undoubtedly rain some more later. It's supposed to rain all week. 

I watched the golf tournament  until it went off. That made 60 Minutes an hour late but I watched it anyhow and had my bath afterward and read until bedtime. I left the plants out overnight. I don't believe it rained this evening so I will need to water them in the morning.  I went to bed about 9:00PM. I was very tired.
