Can Feel the Dampness



I could feel the dampness in the air on the way to the Nursing home this morning.  I really do have to get a new coat the one I do have is getting really old.  The lining is ripping apart.  Mom and I were talking about coats I have been pushing from Burlington and Kohls and she wants me to go to Talbot’s outlet store.  I see a trip there or Mom’s gift for Christmas.  It remained cloudy for the rest of the day until about 4 when the fog rolled in quickly. 

I got to the Nursing home after 9:30.  I think PJ was getting anxious but I wasn’t. I made my routine stops before getting there.   As the morning progressed I went and retrieved the residents and we had a big crowd.  Matthew helped PJ with paperwork.  I don’t think that’s what he had in mind when he signed up.  A couple of the people (read: Ms Dorothy) was making comments when Cookie decided he didn’t want to play.  I walked up to her and asked her not to be mean she pushed at me and said you don’t have to tell me I already said it to myself.    All of this just after we received communion.  I even said she was tough and relieved when she left. 

Bernie helped clean up with me and I checked in with PJ a couple of times before I left.  We discussed who could stay in the Recreation room alone and who had to be brought to the dining room and or back to their room.  When I left I stopped to see the picket line.  After that I got in my car and called Liz. 

A short time later I arrived and for the next hour I was there talking and listening to her and her friend Pat talk.  We talked about everything.  It was a lot of fun. I was heading home by 1:30.

When I got home Mom was on the computer upstairs and soup was cooking on the stove.  I spent the next couple of hours splitting my time between laundry, watching the NCIS marathon, and getting on the computer.

At one point I even got to spend time with some of my four legged godchildren.  I even talked to SeanD whom has been keeping busy with his two jobs.  One he absolutely loves.  We talked about not seeing any Hawks.  I don’t think he really gives a flying leap about them.  The funny thing is not too long after I had the conversation I saw one sitting on a branch on one of the trees on the edge of the swamp/marsh/wetlands.  He was in that tree for nearly a half hour.

For some reason Mom and I got to snapping at each other over really stupid stuff and it really annoyed me.  She didn’t like that I said I went to Springfield MA as part of road trip to return stuff to the Crate and Barrel  This would have been a good time to tell her when she talks like that to me it doesn’t make me feel good.  It also would never work.

Anyway all that passed.  We had dinner (left over stew with potatoes baked and sweet), She was still working on the Turkey soup until about 8.  Now she is watching TV. 

I did have a headache but taking some pain reliever helped.  I also took my plaquenil and the Warfarin earlier this even.  I have noticed a considerable change in the legs and knees.  I still have a little trouble getting up from the check at this desk.  Hoping that won’t be for long.  I have notice lots of interesting stuff from my lupus list. 

Sadly I just received an email from my journaling list informing us that one of our members lost her husband this evening.  I am saddened by this news.  People are responding with supportive emails.

I heard from Jim this evening.  The kids have sent their wish list to us and we got the info we needed.  I have given the emails to Mom so she can do the shopping. 

In the meantime I am going to finish the marathon and then go to sleep.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
