Saturday and New Year's Day

I slept like a log last night. I didn't even wake up once. And I was up at my usual 5:00AM. I am in the process of eating my breakfast now.

This is New Year's Day and I assume everything is closed. I am out of frozen meals and forgot to buy more so I may just have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for my lunch today. It's a little early to worry about lunch right now. It's not quite 6:00AM yet. My Kindle is charged so I may read again today. The apartment is clean but I may do some additional dusting today, I wonder if the winter weather advisory is still on. 

I will go check "the weather on the 8's" and see if the cats are out there for their breakfast.

The winter weather advisory is still current. It may be tomorrow, Sunday, when the worst of it hits.

It is chilly today though.I finished my book and downloaded three more.

Both cats came for breakfast and I fed both of them. When they finished, I put the cat food back in the garage.  It is 8:25AM now. I may go back to the puzzle for awhile.

I worked for several hours on the puzzle and finally finished it at 11:30AM.

Then I fixed myself a peanut and butter sandwich for lunch. It will do. I have some grapes left from Bob's salad and I will eat a few of them too. I think they will be fine.They have been in the frig all this time. I will wash a bowl of them to eat while I read. Tomorrow I will have to buy some more frozen dinners.

More later... 

 No photo description available. 

Another of my niece Carol's puzzles finished. Now back to my latest book.

I read for awhile and then did another puzzle This is the latest one.

No photo description available. 

Carol sends me a box of puzzles every so often. When I finish one , I take a photo of it. I did this one this afternoon. Then I put them away.

I will take my bath now and read until 10:00PM. If I go to bed later,  I sleep better.

Friday and A Winter Weather Advisory

I slept poorly last night just when I thought I was sleeping so well lately. I was too tired and really hadn't done all that much except the vacuuming. I will need to finish that this morning. I still have the living room and dining room to do. I just played out yesterday and didn't want to take a chance on the vacuum sweeper shutting down again. It gets full of carpet fibers. It's almost worse then the dirt it used to have in it after I finished.

I have made my bed and got myself ready for the day. I have even had my breakfast and coffee and am trying something new that I bought in Coffeyville Wednesday. It is called Vanilla Latte. I have drunk the two pods of Chai Latte that Marilyn gave me.

I see in the Chronicle that they have decided that scum bag that shot and killed Johnna's husband, Greg,  is incompetent to try for his murder. They will put him in a mental institution for the rest of his life.  That's a shame. He was competent enough to kill Greg.

I will go check out "the weather on the 8's" and see if the cats are out there waiting for their breakfast.

Both cats were out there but neither of them ate much.

I see we are under a winter weather advisory. Tomorrow we are forecast for freezing rain. Well it will be 2022 tomorrow and it is winter. I just am not looking forward to it.

I worked on another puzzle for a couple of hours this afternoon and finally realized I had not had lunch so I went down to Copan to the Copan Truck Stop and had my iced tea and the small chef salad.

Then I came back home and my landlord was next door so I took the rent check over to him and visited awhile with them. They are only going to use the apartment next door when they come to see their grandchildren who live here. They are staying in Owasso at their home there most of the time. They said they would probably just use the apartment a couple of days a week. He did change two light bulbs for me. I visited with them awhile.They are very nice people. They said they would paint the paneling in the living room if I wanted them to, They painted theirs a light grey and I like it very much. It brightens up the room a lot. 

He changed a couple of burned out light bulbs for me and offered to install a ceiling fan in the bedroom. 

They have decided they won't sell their Owasso home. They are disappointed there aren't any nice restaurants in the area.

It is 4:38PM now. I won't be needing any supper..that's for sure.

More later...

I worked on the puzzle a couple of hours and then at 7:00PM I took my bath. Afterward I was going to read again but the Kindle needed to be charged again.

I had planned to read. I am tired of working on the puzzle this evening.

I will go to bed early this evening..probably about 9:00PM.

Thursday and a Crown

I slept well again last night but was up an hour earlier then usual. I am anticipating getting my new crown at 7:30AM this morning. I am dressed and just getting ready to start eating my breakfast. It's only 5:12AM so I am well ahead of the time. But I would always rather be early them late anywhere.

In a little while I will watch the "weather on the 8's" and in an hour I will check on the cats. 

The new hearing aide seems to be working alright. After I have work it a few days I will know for sure.

One of these days I will have to charge the Fitnus again. It's down to 44%. Now I accidentally lost the notification on my phone.  I can't figure out how to connect it to my phone again. I will have to get Leslie to do it again. It's something about an app. Technology! I am lost as usual.

I will go turn on the weather now.

 More later....

I washed my car in Coffeyville yesterday and it's misting today so that was a waste of $5.00. 

I got my new crown though and it matches perfectly. I couldn't even tell which one was the crown if I didn't know it was a bicuspid.

Anyhow is seems it is going to be a messy day.

More even later. I'm going to go work a puzzle and read awhile. 

I got the puzzle finished!

 May be art of indoor

My next  door neighbor, my landlord and landlady are getting their carpet today. It's just like mine. 

I had a frozen meal for lunch and then I read most of the afternoon and then about 4:00PM, I went to Sonic and bought a Sonic blast for supper. Suzanne had given me a $20.00 Sonic card for Christmas. I have been using it for my cherry limeade slushes. 

Blondie came for his supper but I didn't see Scruff. Hopefully someone is feeding her besides me.

Now I will go back and read another book.
I ended up going on the bed at 9:00PM. I was just too tired to stay up any later.

Wednesday and Hair Day

I slept well last night but did wake up once but got right back to sleep.  I was up at 5:00AM or shortly after and got myself ready for the day. I am having my breakfast now. It is shortly after 6:00AM.

I will leave for Coffeyville about 8:15AM. My appointment is at 9:00AM and it's time for my color and cut so I will be there awhile. Before my appointment I will stop at Sonic and get a cherry limeade slush. That will get me some change for my hair appointment. I don't believe there's anything going on at the senior center today. If there was, it would be Bunco. I will call Janet and find out after I get to Coffeyville.

I will stop by Wal Mart there and pick up a couple of things the market here doesn't carry.

Then I will stop by Marilyn's and pick up the Chai she wants to give me and visit awhile.

I am wearing my new hearing aide this morning and I will have to remember to take it out before Toni starts on my hair. I will take the case and leave it in the car.

It's 6:15AM now and I will go turn on the TV and check the weather and also check out the cats. They didn't come at all yesterday so unless someone else is feeding them too, they will be very hungry.

I also want to wash my car. It rained on it yesterday and every truck that passed me threw filthy water on it.

Both cats were there and they acted like they were starving!

I watched the CBS news until almost 8:00AM and then I got ready to leave for Coffeyville.

So more even later...

I left for Coffeyville shortly before 8:15AM and got my errands done before my hair appointment, I left my sacks at Genesis and went out to Wal Mart to get what I couldn't get at the Caney Market.

Then I stopped by Marilyn's and visited with her for an hour. She gave me some Chai and some Creamy Hazelnut coffee.

I stopped by US Cellular to see if they had the deal that was on TV where they would give folks who were already their customers a smart phone free of charge. They didn't seem to know anything about it. I saw it advertised on TV.

Then I came back home and put away my groceries.

I am listening to some Kenny Rogers music while I scan my laptop computer for issues. My AVG has been updated on that computer.

I need to update the Glary Utilities on both computers.

I got that done.Glary Utilities fixes a lot of messes on the computers...and it's free.

My landlord called to say the carpet layers decided to come tomorrow instead of today. So I guess the landlord will be here to watch them lay it to be sure they do it correctly. 

I have been eating all evening one thing and then the other and working on the puzzle It's coming right along. I worked on it a couple of ours this afternoon.I had an ice cream bar and Marilyn sent me home with a bag of Chex and I ate that too.That had better be the last of all of that or I will surely gain more weight.

Both cats came for supper one at a time. Blondie came first and I fed him. After he finished, I was going to bring the food back in the garage but then Scruff was out there so I left it for her until she finished and left. Then I took it back in. I had left a bowl of fresh water yesterday ad she drank quite a bit of it.

It is 6:15PM now and soon I will take my bath. I will read awhile before I go to bed.

Tuesday and An Appointment

I slept well again last night and before I went to bed, I finished another book. I never woke up in the night even once. I was up at 5:00AM as usual. I took my meds this morning. I have made my bed, dressed and got myself ready for the day. I am eating my breakfast now and having my coffee. 

It has rained most of the night. 

At 10:00AM I will go down to see Nancy. I will probably need my umbrella. Yesterday I gave Rudy Nancy's address so they can send her the Chronicle. I will probably eat lunch at Eggbert's down there and at 3:00PM I have an appointment with the audiologist. She will finally fit my hearing aide and test my hearing again so she can adjust it. That's another $75.00 for the test. Getting the hearing aide repaired was $350. And I had to pay that when they sent it in to the factory. Always something. Then on the 30th, I will get my crown. That's already paid for too in advance... thank goodness. Oh well, I can't take it with me.

It's 6:15AM now.  I will go check out the weather.

So more later...

No cats this morning but of course, it's raining. They aren't coming out in the rain and get soaked.

It;s supposed to rain most of the day and Friday too.

I left to go visit with Nancy at 9:30AM and got there by 10:00AM we visited until noon and then I left and went to eat at Eggbert's before my appointment. Then I drove around the mall to see what was left there....certainly not much!

I had a great surprise when I got to my appointment. The factory couldn't fix my hearing aid so the factory sent me a new one. I paid $350. to have it fixed and outside of the office call of $75. there was no additional charge. The audiologist adjusted it on her computer and got it clear as a bell. This one has an adjustment I can make if I want it to be louder or softer. The one I had didn't have that adjustment. She also gave me a couple of ear pieces (the part that fits into the ear) and a package of batteries. So  I am delighted. I was all ready to be unhappy with them for cancelling my appointment two weeks ago and having to reappoint me for today. Then when I went to check in with them, both office people completely ignored me. I finally just took a seat. Before they let me go back to the audiologist, they wanted their $75.00 and I gave them my debit card. 

My landlord and his wife get their carpet laid tomorrow. They came to see mine after I got home this afternoon. They thought it looked good too. I will go to Coffeyville tomorrow and get my hair done. Afterward I will go out to the Coffeyville Walmart and see if they have any Chai Latte. I checked Bartlesville's Walmart and they had none. The employee that works that area said it was probably the hang up at the docks in California. I will drop by Marilyn's in the afternoon. She wants me to come and pick up two Chai Latte she has. I will visit with her a bit. 

I just texted my son Scott who has the covid and he is 80% better today and feels good. I am so delighted.He had been fully vaccinated and had even had the booster. My older son has shingles and I have just texted him to see how he is doing. He is better too..thank goodness. Shingles are no fun.

More later...I will go watch the CBS evening news now. Maybe the cats are out there too. They didn't come for breakfast.

It's 6:25PM and  will take my bath soon.Then I will either work on my puzzle or read again. I downloaded two more free books from Amazon. 

I plan to go to bed sometime between 9:00PM and 10:00PM

Monday and a Quiet Day

I have nothing planned for today but to read. If the wind quiets down.I may rake leaves. But I am not counting on it. I slept well last night again. In fact it was nearly 6:00AM before I got up. It's 6:45AM now and I am just now having my breakfast. I haven't had the TV on yet or checked on the cats.

According to the desktop  computer Caney's forecast is sunny and 70 degrees right now. Weird weather for December.

Scott just texted us that he had another bad night. He had the sweats and chills  and that cough again last night. He is not through this mess yet.

Tomorrow I will go visit Nancy again, have lunch at Bartlesville and at 3:00PM,  go see the audiologist. I hope to pick up my hearing aide then too. I spent $350.00 to have it repaired at the factory. She wants to test me again too. Another $75.00. 

I will go check "the weather on the 8's" and the cats.

I watched the news and both cats were there for breakfast so I fed  them and after they ate I put the food back in the garage.  

Then I went to the post office to mail back Sage's Christmas gift. They couldn't find a Tumwater, WA at all so I ended up sending it to her mother's address. 

It's 10:16 AM now. 

Leslie just sent me the schedule for January and I am scheduled for the 30th. I have not been able to reach the worship resources at Herald House with either  of my computers for some weird reason. I tried the church's website and found what I was looking for just fine.

I got the first of my classmate's returned newsletters. Hubert Guest moved to California so I put his letter in a new envelope and sent it on to him there. Then I changed his address on both computers. 

I have been working on the bulletin and sermon for January 30th. It's a little early for that but I wanted to at least get the basics down. 

I had my last chicken and veggies pot pie for lunch and it is now 2:15PM. I think I will go get a cherry limeade slush.

Sandy called me and we talked for awhile on the phone then I did go to get a cherry limeade slush. It's 5:15PM now and I will go watch the evening news.

More later...

Sunday After Christmas

I slept well again last night. It must be staying up later that helps. It was nearly 11:00PM before I went to bed last night. I read all evening. There was absolutely nothing worth watching on TV.

I was up at 5:00AM, as usual. I have had my breakfast and am working on my coffee now. It's 6:15AM.

I have the sermon  this morning at church.That will be at 11:00AM. I am not sure where we will eat lunch afterward.

I wonder how Scott is doing this morning and how he did last night. Ginger didn't know if he had the flu or the covid. She said the flu was everywhere too. She said Scott had refused to take the flu shot.I asked her to pick up one of those home covid tests when she finished her shift and came home.  He felt so bad last evening I worry about him.

I texted Scott again this morning and he said he was doing a slight bit better...but not much. He had the chills and sweats all night. He said he felt like his head was in a vice and someone was screwing it down. Not good...not good at all. He was going to try to get back to sleep. What a mess he is going through.

I have gone over the notes for this morning's sermon several times. I tried to download another book too but so far I haven't found one I haven't already read. It's 9:46AM now. I will leave for the church at 10:00AM and get there in plenty of time make sure everything's ready.

I checked out the cats and they were both out there ready to eat. When they finished I brought the food back in the garage. I need to go out to Dollar General and get a couple of things. I am out of breakfast bars for one thing.

More later... 

Leslie sent me this photo of when I was out there Christmas. Darling puppies!!!

 May be an image of 1 person and dog 

This is Bandit I am holding! 

I got through the sermon this morning but I felt completely unorganized with it. I usually don't feel that way but this was the exception.

It's 2:44PM now. We ate lunch at Maria's. It was a good lunch.  Chicken Chimmichanga.

Scott is better! He thinks he may be starting on the mend. I hope so! When Ginger comes home she may bring a test kit. Then he will know.

I started to rake leaves while it was a mild day. But it's too windy. It will have to wait for a calmer day.

I got the living room vacuumed this afternoon with no more shut downs of the vacuum sweeper. Until some of the fluff is gone, I may just vacuum one room a day. I will continue to mop as I usually do.

More later...It's almost 4:00PM now..

I read all afternoon and evening and finally went on to bed at 10:00PM
