Saturday and Home Again

I slept fairly well last night even though I had to put cotton in my ears to sleep. I have a cricket in the apartment and I cannot find it. It may even be more then one. It's hard to tell. 

I saw nothing of either of the cats. They may have given up on me since I was gone a week. I did catch "the weather on the 8's" though.

Today is to be 73 degrees and partly cloudy. Tomorrow is to be 68 degrees and sunny, Monday is to be 69 degrees and sunny, Tuesday is to be 73 degrees and sunny, Wednesday is to be 77 degrees and partly cloudy, Thursday is to be 84 degrees and thunderstorms, and Friday is to be 79 degrees and partly cloudy. that's the week . It looks like we had at least one day of rain while I was gone last week.

I have had my breakfast and coffee and even Chai latte. I have the Saturday CBS news on but I am here in the den doing this blog. I want to take my walk so I will get back to this a little later.

More Later... 

I took my mile walk this morning and once again picked up a grocery bag full of trash from the street. Much of it was water bottles and pop cans but also just paper. It's tragic how little some care about their own community. I am back at 9:30AM now. 

I think I will go up to the library and check out a couple of books now. I have nothing to read. My mail is supposed to be delivered this morning when the mailman comes. I had it held at the post office while I was gone.

I went up to Gabbie's downtown and had a very good chicken salad sandwich and iced tea for my lunch. It was very good. In fact I have never had anything there that was not good. Roger makes a great milkshake too and even gives you what is left in the can like they did when I was young. I didn't have a milkshake today but I have once or twice before when I have eaten with them.

They are only open on Saturdays because they have good jobs in Coffeyville  during the week.

More Even Later... 

I tried to call Tom Muller, the man who works at O.K. Electric in Coffeyville and he did not answer. He was going to try to repair my leaf vacuum so I could rake my leaves and vacuum them up. I left it at Ace Hardware for him to pick up there. If he could get the part it needs and repair it, he was going to take it back to Ace Hardware and leave it there with the bill for me to pick up after he learns if he can get parts for it to repair it. I couldn't reach him there at O.K. Elecr

Friday A Week Later

It's Friday and a week later. We just got home from our World Conference. It's always a wonderful experience and we work hard getting all kinds of legislation passed. We stayed in John and Leslie's camper and slept well all week. We ate out some of the time and ate sandwiches and salad at the camper quite a lot too. I gained three pounds. I will work hard at getting it back off before it multiplies.

We saw a lot of people we only see at World Conference. I have outlived several I always got to see there.

After we got home, Leslie and John took me back to my own apartment. I have a hard time driving at night anymore. The bright lights tend to blind me. And another thing happened when I got home. I found I have a chirping cricket somewhere in the apartment. As I unpacked it chirped and chirped. I have looked everywhere but it is still chirping and I have not been able to find it. I may have to stuff my ears with cotton to sleep at all.

Tomorrow is Saturday and I will wash my hair in the tub and try to blow it dry myself and straighten my bangs and curl the hair on top of my head. It has been over week now and it needs it badly.

It's 11:22PM now and I have had my bath, unpacked everything and put it all away. I am very  tired.

More tomorrow!
