Good morning. Have you noticed the date? Today is the last day of the month of May. Now where did all of that month go? I do believe that I'm getting older so fast because the months are flying by so fast.
This morning the sun is shining brightly and the temperature is at 60F degrees and working towards close to eighty degrees. Oh boy, Pogo and I just might get to sit out on the porch today. My Pogo wants so badly to get back out there. Actually, me too!
I need to do some shopping but I don't dare go alone just yet. My breathing seems to be getting better some times, but then other times it's not. If it keeps up I'll have to make an appointment with my doctor. I don't want to have to do that because he will refer me to a lung specialist who is going to make me take some stress tests. And, I'm not doing the stress tests. The last time I had one with a breathing specialist I didn't think I was going to make it out of the room.
Somehow I think that today's doctors and the insurance companies get a lot of pleasure out of torturing us. I know that there are non life-threatening stress tests out there, but they are not the ones that the doctors use. Instead, they like to use the physical stress tests that push your heart or your lungs to the limit. I'm not finding any enjoyment in this. (or necessity)
However, on to the fun stuff. I've been taking it very easy these past few days, and that means watching a lot of fabulous bargains on TV. Especially SHOP LC. I've already ordered a few Christmas gifts to be put away as soon as they arrive here. Folks, they don't just sell jewelry on this program. They have some clothing items, and a lot of household items too. Obviously, I can't say which bargains I got.
Today is Under $10 Day at SHOP LC but I haven't bought anything. I also stumbled across a couple of terrific bargain on Amazon and ordered them too to be put away for Christmas. I'm having some thoughts lately about what to save for Christmas and what not to save. My Dad got to a certain age and decided to give things to folks that he normally would have left to them in his will. His reasoning for this was so that he could enjoy watching folks enjoy his gifts.
I'm thinking that I'd like to do this too. So maybe I'll just give a lot of these gifts to the folks they were bought for, and just give them one gift at Christmas. Normally, I go overboard at Christmas, but then I don't get to watch folks enjoy these things. Hmmm, yup, I think this is what I'll probably do starting this year.
DIL Janet has been going to the gym to exercise three nights a week, plus dieting, and has lost twenty pounds. Woo Hoo! Congratulations to Janet! I've been doing pretty good too with the dieting. I found this image on the web, and yup! it's me in a nutshell!
My kids are all great cooks so I ordered a new magazine for them. It's called The Food Network Magazine. Here is one of the recipes that is in the newest issue that just came. It's called Pineapple Soft Serve, and oh my it sounds delicious! I hope you can read these instructions. If not, let me know and I'll be glad to send you a copy via text message.
Deanne will be stopping by in a while, so I'd best get busy and do a couple chores so that we can sit and enjoy our time together. Before I go, I have another new quick page for you. This one is called Rusted Liberty. It's something different from me, that's for sure. Have fun with it.

Now I'm off. I want to do a bit of blog reading before I get started on my chores. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
