Good morning. Goodie goodie! It's gray and wet outside my door. There's even a little breeze coming in. Oops, I spoke a bit soon. On TV, they are giving us a "severe thunderstorm warning". The temps today should be around 79 - 80 degrees with rain. Well, right now it is quite nice.
So, how did it go at work last night? It didn't. I called out. Yesterday my heart did not seem to be beating right and I felt it was best not to go in to work. I think it was mostly all due to the humidity and the anticipation of a bad night. At my age, I'm not taking any chances with my health.
I spent most of yesterday resting. About the only thing I accomplished was a load of laundry and a few rows on the new crochet project. Now I'm looking at my calendar, and I need to spend some time finishing up the navy blue afghan if I want to get if finished this month.
Can you believe it? July is almost over!! Just three more days left in this month. It's time to make a list of the stash in my "gift drawer" and see what I still need to get my holiday shopping done. Most of my stuff has to be in the mail by the first of December, so finishing up early is a must.
Folks, I have to share this wonderful article that was in the news this past week. Meet Bernice Madigan. She's the oldest person in Massachusetts, and has just celebrated her 115th birthday. WOW! (information from iBerkshires.com)
She is the fifth oldest person in the world. Bernice was born on July 24, 1899 in West Springfield, MA. William McKinley was president of the 45 states of America at that time. She graduated Adams High School in 1918, and worked as a secretary for the Veteran's Administration and Treasury Department in Washington, D.C. before returning to Massachusetts with her husband, Paul.
The couple was married for 50 years when he died in 1976. Bernice credits her longevity to not having any children. The world's oldest living person is a woman in Japan, who is 116 years old. Let's all join in and wish Bernice a super Happy Birthday!!
Well, that tops any news I might have, so I think I'll go to the kitchen and make a cup of coffee. I need to wash a few scatter rugs, so now is a good time to do that too. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
