Good morning. Goodness, I'm getting a slow start today. It's already after ten o'clock. Ah well, I don't have any early morning appointments today. It's just absolutely lovely outside right now. The temp is in the high seventies, the sun is shining and there is a nice little breeze.
I do have to go out for a while, so I'll do that after I've finished this post. By mid afternoon, temps will be up around ninety degrees. I'll want to be back here with my air conditioning by then. Yesterday was quite the busy day, but I did get a lot accomplished.
In the morning, I saw my orthopedic doctor for my follow up. This was a good visit, but it was also a sad one. He said that he is retiring by the end of next month. Boo hoo hoo. I'm really going to miss him. I've been seeing him for thirty five or more years. He's a peach! Before I left there, he gave me a prescription to get my own new walker.
When I got home, I called the insurance company to find out how to get the walker, and then I made some calls to find a medical supplier where I could pick one up. After this, I called the oxygen folks, and they said that my new concentrator would be delivered later in the afternoon.
Next, I picked up Deanne and took her to her job. Her car is out of commission for a while. She is always doing things for me, so it's nice to be able to help her. When I got back home, I had to find out why my Sunday blog did not get posted. I know I posted it, but somehow it only got saved as a draft. I posted it again and checked to make sure it was visible.
I got a really nice surprise in my email. Someone left me a message that my blog post was not up and was I alright. She missed me. Wowsie! Do you know how special that made me feel? Angelica, you are a very special lady and you inspire me so. It would be such a treat to meet you in person some day. Now wouldn't that be a treat?
After that, my new oxygen concentrator arrived. The man did not seem very happy, but I was. This new machine is smaller and very quiet. When I'm using the oxygen from it, I don't get dizzy when I get up to walk. It's already quite an improvement. Yeaaaaaaaaaaa!
I found this saying on the web and had to share it. When we get older, going out for any reason can be such a treat.. Does this ring a bell with anyone? hahaha.
This morning, Pogo and I are watching Daniel Tiger on the TV. It's a really cute kids program. Today, it's about using your words to express how you feel instead of getting mad and making loud noises. It's a good lesson for kids. And it's very entertaining.
Here's another image that I borrowed from the web. This is something for all you folks with kitty kats. It's called a Catio, and shouldn't be too difficult to build. I imagine that your kitty kats would really love it.
Now it's time for me to get dressed and go see about picking up my new walker. After lunch, Pogo and I will go pick up Deanne and take her to work. Then it's back to our cool living room for the rest of the day .Maybe I'll even crochet a while later on. I actually picked up the pink afghan a couple nights ago and put on another couple rows.
I'm off now, so till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
