Saturday and Apartment Cleaning

I slept fairly well last night and was up shortly before 5:00AM. I was very tired when I went to bed. It had been a big busy week.

Today I need to get some Pam to spray my dish that I do my coffeecake in. I will make that for our breakfast at church tomorrow. I believe my last Pam can is empty. I also need to get some Coffeemate for my coffee. It seems no matter how hard I try to stay ahead on groceries, I always think of something I forgot to write down.

I am having my breakfast here in the den again. It's almost 6:00AM now. When I finish my oatmeal and I will go turn on the TV in the living room and watch the weather channel for the "weather on the 8's".

I also will turn on the outdoor light about 6:30AM and see if any cats are out there for their breakfasts.

I never made time this week to clean the apartment this week so I will do that today too.

Tomorrow is daylight savings time and I have no idea how to move my two watches back an hour. Monday I will have to stop by a jeweler in Bartlesville and have them do it.The one in Coffeyville/Independence has retired. Someone said it might do it itself but I am not sure. Neither watch came with instructions. The jeweler in Bartlesville set up the second one Ginger sent me.

So more later...

Both cats were out there for their breakfast this morning. I didn't give them as much food as usual. They often leave most of it if I give them too much. So the last two days I have just given a lot smaller dish of food.

More later... 

I finally caught "the weather on the 8's". Today is to be 63 degrees and partly cloudy, Tomorrow is to be 72 degrees and sunny, Monday 68 degrees and cloudy, Tuesday 75 degrees and AM thunderstorms, Wednesday is to be 77 degrees and partly cloudy and windy. Thursday is to be 58 degrees and showers, Friday is to be 48 degrees and sunny. That's the week ahead.

I went to the market and bought some Pam to spray onto my 8 by 8 dish that I will bake my coffee cake in tomorrow. They have finally hired a new manager for the market. I don't know who it is yet but I will soon know as I go to the market to shop. I had a nice conversation with two of the employees. They are going to try to get the new manager to buy my coffee cake mix and keep it in stock.

I just finished my mopping and am waiting for the floors to dry before I begin my vacuuming. Then afterwards, I will dust. 

More later...

Now the desktop computer is having trouble finding the server.....always something...and it is using Windows 10 too.

I got all my housework done today and have been reading all afternoon. I wanted to watch the Ohio State game at 11:00 on ABC but for some reason, I couldn't get ABC.I had it out with Cox and they are sending a tech out on Tuesday to give me another card for my TV.

More later...

I ended up watching another game on CBS this evening. It was Georgia against Tennessee. Georgia won. They are number one in the nation right now.

I tried to reset my clock on the microwave but I don't think I managed it. I don't know how to reset either of my watches. I will have to go to a jeweler in Bartlesville on Monday and get it done.

I read for several hours this afternoon too. It's 6:48PM now and I guess I will go take my bath. I plan to go to bed at 9:00PM.

More later...

Friday and Lunch with Gay and Adele

 I slept pretty well last night and only woke up once and then went back to sleep. I was up at 5:30AM, made my bed and dressed and got myself ready for the day. I had intended to clean the apartment this morning before I meet Gay and Adele but I may put that off another day and do it on Saturday. I will wait and see how well I feel this morning. I intended to balance my checkbook this morning but it didn't least not yet.

I am eating my breakfast now...back here in the den ..since I now have internet and can work on my blog.

I got in the living room with the laptop just in time to catch the weather forecast. Today will be 73 degrees and heavy thunderstorms and wind.Tomorrow is to be 63 degrees and sunny. Sunday is to be 71 degrees and sunny, Monday is to be 73 degrees and mostly cloudy, Tuesday is forecast for 78 degrees and AM thunderstorms, Wednesday is to be 78 degrees and partly cloudy, Thursday is forecast to be 71 degrees and PM showers. So it looks like we might have rain a couple of days this week...maybe three. We can sure use it.

Now I will watch the CBS news.

Only Blondie came for breakfast. He ate and left but I haven't seen least not yet.

It is light now so I will put away the laptop and take my walk.

I got back from my 10 block walk at 8:17AM. I saw three other women walking too. They were walking in the opposite direction though. They were friendly and spoke to me.

Today is the funeral of Nancy's friend, Judy Phillips. Dale said he would come get her and take her to it. I assume it will be held here in Caney.

More later...

I got over to Coffeyville early enough to get to visit with Gay and Adele before Brown Shoe Company. They each bought several pair. Gay needed new boots and she found some really nice ones. After they paid for them,we went to lunch at Eggbert's. I had their nice salad. The other two had sandwiches. Gay insisted on paying for my lunch too.That was nice of her.

It poured down raining on my way back and the mailman had left my mail, including two packages for Christmas gifts near my front door. That would have been fine if the rain hadn't been blowing but the mail was soaked. I was not a happy soldier but on the other hand, I wasn't here to receive them. The bills were soaked too. I dried them with a hair dryer the best I could and took them up to the post office to the drop box outside. I hope they stay dry in there.

Blondie came out in that rain for his supper. I fed him in the garage...just inside the door.  When he finished and left, I put away his food and covered it.. I wasn't going to make him stand by the front door and eat in that rain. 

My lights just blinked. I hope I don't lose power. This is quite a rain.

More later...

I read until bath time at 7:00PM and then I took my bath and put my pajamas on and got ready for bed at 9:00PM.

Thursday and Internet Again

I slept poorly last night anticipating the Cox tech coming this morning at 8:00AM. I finally just got up and then made my bed and dressed and fixed my breakfast. 

It was the router and he even got the Tivo working again too. And I have a new router that works. I have been without internet and wifi for a week today. My Kindle is working again now too so I can take my library books back after I read them and download free books to read on the Kindle. What a mess this has been.

Now I can balance my checkbook too. Hopefully!

Scruff came for her breakfast this morning but I didn't see anything of Blondie.

More later...I was $2.00 off on the bank account. I think that was the tip I left at Big Cheese day before yesterday. That's all I can think of. I didn't spend any money yesterday. I do have to go back out to Dollar General and get some toothpaste though. I believe I will wait until tomorrow morning (before I go to Coffeyville to meet Gay) and clean the apartment before 11:30AM. I am very tired already.  I got up way too early this morning and then I fell asleep in the recliner. 

I went ahead and bought my toothpaste out at Dollar General.I knew I wouldn't have enough to brush my teeth in the morning. Then I stopped at Mr. G's and bought a small butter pecan flurry. They had gone up a dollar. I suppose it was because they had to buy a new soft serve machine.

Then I read most of the afternoon. It's 5:05PM now and at 7:00PM, I will take my bath. At 5:30PM, I will watch the news.

It is 6:31PM and in about 30 minutes I will take my bath and put my pajamas on and either read or watch TV until regular  bedtime. I hope I sleep better tonight then I did last night. Last night was a nightmare.
