Friday all Day Long

What a gorgeous day!  Katie sent me out for a walkie.

 I see while I was gone she was tearing around the house.  I see feet  prints dug into the carpet where she was running hard.  I can even see where she put on her brakes so to speak.  She had a few bites to eat in addition to her early breakfast but she was and still is sound asleep now. A girl has to rest.

She sent me to a park where the sidewalk or trail in places is smooth and perfect for a first outing in a while.

I am about out of food and that is serious.  I ate down all that I had except a few frozen dinners  and a few cans of veggies.  I will wait till tomorrow when I have a friend come and help me haul all the food I will be buying.  I love the company too.

I was going to include a few pictures but blogger won't load the thingy you use to post pictures.

Just checking in and saying thank you again for caring.  That's a blessing to me.  xxoo

Rainy Day as Always but Hey...It's a Day, Right?

Hello, Hi and Howareya?  Or is that Hawaii-- pronounced HIwawyee?  That's another way to say  howareya!

WE have had SO much rain that I have three HUGE fungi growing in the back yard.  They are not toad stools.  these are almost leafy looking, tan in color and they are about 18 inches or more in circumference and about that high!!! I called the mower and can't wait for it to stop raining so he can get here!  It's like a jungle out there with overgrown weeds and grass.

I am close to being all better now.  I see a doctor next Wednesday to hear his pronouncements and then, it will be history for me.  Well, not withstanding checkups.  :-)

Katie's favorite brother has been here six weeks and will be going back to his place next Monday or close to that.  Katie will miss him terribly.  They are very bonded.  About as much as she and I are bonded.  She has been snugged tightly into my midriff at night which precludes me turning over without disturbing her.  I won't do that so I suffer.  I can feel her using her feet on the mattress to push herself backward into my midriff all snug and tight.  Sweet girl.

Just saying a few words and Susie, I am thrilled to see you here.  Thank you so much dear friend.  I miss Beth as well and I still have her address in the computer contacts and her phone numbers in my phones.  Can't bring myself to take them out.  No harm that they are there except it's bittersweet when I see them.

Boston Boy, I will send you a quick email.  Hope you see this.  All of you...thank you for staying with me.  Tabbies, you are a smile making lot of fish chomping kitties!

Here I Yam, as Popeye Would Say!

Howdy fellow Popeye enthusiasts.  What?  You aren't one?  What's up with that?  That's alright.  I'll enthuse enough for all of us.

A cloudy day today and it will shower off and on after noon time.  I wish it would not but I have noticed that what I wish doesn't seem to be very effective!  Hm.  I must be---as the saying goes---holding my mouth wrong.

I had a procedure but I am getting around pretty well if I say so myself.  That's good as I have people to annoy and places to go.  All in good time.

Just stopping by to say hello and to thank you for not forgetting about me.

Almost Bastille Day!

Well,  tomorrow the 14th of July it's Bastille Day in France.   Just sayin'.

Next week I will be taking another 3 week or so break from all blogging and Tweeting.  Katie decided to do the same.  She has a Twitter account too and she does far better than I could ever hope to.  No way I could ever hope to catch up with her in followers.  That girl has it goin' on! (she's far prettier than I could ever hope to be, and her personality is so full of joy...I haven't a chance) She and I will report back after our bloggie break (again).

You'd be really surprised at how many times one or the other of you comes to my mind and makes me smile.  Many of us have been walking this same roadway for a LONG time.  You get to be a family albeit a blog family and you get to be friends too, I think.

See ya in a few weeks..and I'll tell you all about my time off.  xoxoxox

I love these guys.  Speedwell I think?

WOWZERS! Amazing How SOMETIMES Stuff Gets Done!

Last evening, I wrote quite a to-do list of things that had to be done as soon as I could get them done.  Most involved calls but some will require action on my part.

Today, I called my local hospital to tell them the info re: my personal physician and name of medical clinic was wrong.   I like many folks have a patient access to my personal doctor's office and any other medical facility I may use.  You can message, make appointments, etc.  They remedied that  problem I brought to their attention and I had the opportunity to bring up several other vexing questions as well for answers and, I got them!

I got to find how and where to compliment an entire organization for its fabulous customer service too after another call to find to whom to address this really fun thing to do.  Compliment thoroughly.

I called to get a plumber for a slow running bathroom drain and darned if he didn't say he'd be here in ten minutes!  The stuff of dreams!!!

I called the car dealership and explained a really need-to-fix problem and asked if it could be done.  Yes.  And the appointment is next Monday.  0900.  $150.00 later I will be so much better off.

I called to cancel an appointment I had at 0900 this day and got that done as well AND I had the opportunity to speak to someone knowledgeable about a problem I fancied I had.  All today.

I went out for a while and did some recreational shopping.  Just a bit.  I had a few days where I was feeling a bit badly so I did nothing that was not needful for those days.    It happens to everyone sometimes but I am fine now.

I am so impressed with how things are coming along in plans I have.  They are coming to fruition flawlessly.  I am so grateful for that.  God is good.

Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Evening.

What a day.  It was 101 degrees f just a few miles away and 97 here.  Hot hot hot.  Better than the 107 and 105 and 104 we had several years ago.

I only wanted to keep my hand in and say hello again.  There is so much going on here that while I am thinking of you (yes, I actually am, believe it or not) I can't always make that known to you.

All of my old friends are precious to me from Spaces and all of my new friends from Blogger are equally precious.

Thank you for your friendship.  Things will calm down here.  They have no choice!  :-)

Amazing How Time Won't Stand Still.

Kidding.  It's not amazing at all.  Just there are a few times in one's life when you would like the moment to last.  It doesn't except in our memory.  Debatable as to whether or not that is the better thing...time moving on.  After all, getting stuck in one moment until we pass away does seem a bit overwhelming, doesn't it?

I am still reeling from the passing of Beth Marie.  Though we spoke often and I knew where she was, a hospice, still I did not expect her to ever be in one. I was devastated at her continuing diagnosis and then I never expected her to leave us so quickly.

I'm just checking in.  Instead of the usual things each day that I set to do or accomplish, I have decided to take part of the day to rearrange the drawers in the bedroom and some of my pajamas in the linen closet.   I have too many ancient sets of pi's that never see the light of day and now I am certain they won't.  Off they go.  I don't need them as rags.  Too many already.  I think I may head to the dump and recycle center before the skies open up again.

Why not head on in there with me while I pull out the last drawer and sort the things in there and get rid of "I will never wear this again" stuff?  I need the company.  Boring job.  Come on..get up..let's go.  We'll have some sparkling mandarin orange water for a treat afterward.  Last one in by the dresser is a rotten egg.  *zoom*

Saw this on FB this morning.  LOVE it.
