Good morning. It's going to a hot one today. At the moment, the temp is 77F degrees, and by noon it will be up around 90F degrees. From the way I'm breathing, I can tell it's going to be sticky too. I would go out on the porch now while there's a nice breeze, but I'm taking my Nebulizer meds and I need electricity for that.
Today is daughter Deanne's birthday. Dee Dee, you've been such a joy and an enormous help to me, and I appreciate everything you do for me. I hope your special day is full of happiness and love. Happy Birthday Sweetie. I love you.
Gosh, it's been a busy weekend so far. Friday, Pogo and I set out on our own to find Sears and buy a refrigerator for the main house. Well, we made it to the East side of Brockton just fine. Finding Sears was another story. After driving around, trying to find the store, I finally called Deanne to find out where the damn store was. I knew where it was supposed to be, but it wasn't there.
Deanne informed me that Sears had moved (quite a while ago!) to the Mall. Oh goodie! I haven't found it yet, and I'm already running out of steam. Thank goodness I brought my walker with me. Janice said she would go with me if I came by and picked her up. This was good because by now I was needing a potty break too.
Finally, we arrived at Sears (in the mall). It didn't take too long to find the refrigerator that I was looking for and to buy it. We settled on a delivery date of this coming Friday, and I paid a little extra to have the old refrigerator taken away.
Next, we stopped at JoAnne's to pick up some yarn. I picked up a couple new colors to make hat and scarf sets. One set is already half done, so I'll take some photos later today. From there, we went to
the Pet Supply store to buy some doggie food for Pogo. I bought three bags full of doggie food, (cans) and sad to say somewhere between the store and my car I lost one of the bags. (I didn't know this until after I had gotten home.)
By now, my feet were swollen and I was in a lot of pain. Time to head on home. On the way, I took Janice home so that she could change her clothes, and then I dropped her off at work. By the time I got home, I could barely walk.
Friday night, Jasmine and her friend Hailey had a paid singing engagement at a local VFW. It was a dinner party to celebrate World War II Veterans. The girls sang God Bless America, and then each of them sang two solos. All in all, it was a wonderful evening. This was Jazzy's second paid engagement. Not bad, Jazzy! I'm really proud of you. Here's a photo of Deanne's ticket. The second photo is Hailey and Jazzy.
This photo shows the World War II Veterans. The youngest one is 92 years old. The one wearing the white sports jacket (third one in from the right) was one of the DJ's. Deanne says he was awesome.
Saturday I tried not to move around too much, only when necessary. That night, though, I finally gave in and took some pain meds. It alleviated enough of the pain so that I could get around a little bit. This morning, the swelling (of the feet) has gone down a tad bit, so hopefully this won't last much longer than a couple more days. I do believe it's the heat and the muggies that is causing my feet to do this so often.
Ah well, I'm getting achy sitting in this position for so long. I think Pogo and I will head out to the porch. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
