Good morning. Oh my, I asked for a nice cool night and that's exactly what I got last night. It was the perfect night for sleeping. Alas, I did not sleep very well. My breathing has not been so good, and I seem to be using the oxygen more often.
Today is supposed to be in the mid to upper 80's, and then for the next six days we are looking at temps in the 90's. Oh joy! To make matters worse, several storms have come close by but they have all missed us. We really need some rain. Not a flood, mind you. But our water levels are going down.
Yesterday, Kevin, Pogo and I went to visit Aunt Lucy. She is such a fun person, and we all had a great time. Aunt Lucy just loves Kevin. Especially when she learned that he would like be to a state trooper one day after college and the military. One of her sons was a state trooper, so this really made her smile.
A couple days ago, I got a lovely surprise in my email. My friend Beth made this beautiful scrap page of Pogo enjoying an afternoon on the porch. Beth, thank you so much. I love it.
Have you ever had a moment where you forgot how to spell a word, or even worse, forgot the word you want to use? One way around this problem, is to change your whole sentence to use other words.
According to my book "The Ultimate Women's Guide to Beating Disease", I need to eat more chocolate. Chocolate helps you feel sharper, more relaxed and just plain happier. Also, I need to pick up some sage oil. One hour after people took a supplement of sage oil, they had better memory, more focused attention, and more alertness. Even just sniffing sage helps to give you a better memory. (Book written and published by Bottom Line Health 2016)
This afternoon, Pogo has a doctor appointment to update his rabies shot and find out why he is so itchy lately. Hopefully, his doctor can give us something to alleviate the itch.
Now I'm going to see if I can squeeze in a little nap before it's time for us to leave. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
