Good morning. Tis another really lovely day here in my little part of New England. The sun is shining and there's a teeny tiny breeze. Soon though, temps will be up in the low nineties.
Last evening, I borrowed a very interesting image from the web to share here. How quickly time passes by. Do you realize that last night was the last time we will see the sun set after 8 p,m, until April 28, 2020? I guess this means that there's a hint of Fall in the air.
Well, it's been a busy two days here. Friday I went to have my labs done. Hopefully, I should be getting the results by Monday or Tuesday. On the way home, Dee and I stopped by WaalMart to pick up my meds and a few groceries. One med had not been called in, and after I got home, I found that another one of my meds was written up wrong. (By the doctor's office) I placed a call to the doctor's office to let them know and express my frustration at how little attention they pay to my meds. I will call them back tomorrow to make sure things have been taken care of.
Friday evening, I called my cousin Dickie, whom I haven't seen in years. Unfortunately, when I called, he was already tucked into bed for the night. I told him I would call him the next day. Sad to say, when I checked on FaceBook yesterday, I found that he was in the hospital. Oh no! It seems that he fell and broke a couple ribs. Another cousin had found out about it and had gone to the hospital to visit him. (and posted this photo on FaceBook)
I'll have to check with another cousin to find out how long he will be in the hospital so that maybe I can go to visit with him.
Yesterday, Pogo and I got to go visit with my cousin Ellen, Dickie's sister. Deanne dropped us off, and went to do her errands while we visited. I also got to meet another cousin's wife, Linda, who was here visiting with Ellen. She's from Illinois, and I've never met her in person. Pogo and I had a wonderful visit. Ellen has two cats, and Pogo was busy trying to find them to see if maybe they wanted to be friends. He wasn't very successful.
I have to show you my gorgeous orange roses that Deanne brought me when she picked me up. This is my favorite color, and oh my they are simply gorgeous!
When we got home, I took photos of another beautiful rose that has blossomed in my garden. Gosh, I'm surrounded by all sorts of beauty!
Last evening, I cooked up a batch of fresh summer squash and had that with some grilled chicken (thank you Deanne for the yummy chicken). It's been a while since I've had summer squash and I have to admit that I ate the whole batch. Yum! Yum! Folks, I think I'm going to enjoy my new cooktop. I can cook different things in a wink.
This morning, I've been watching Shop LC on TV. The bargains have been super. I did call in to order a bag of Shungite. I tried to order this the last time they had it but I did not get through in time before it sold out.
Shungite is one of the only known natural materials known to contain fullerenes, which are powerful anti-oxidants. The energy embodied within this ancient stone is said to absorb and eliminate anything that is a health hazard to human life, and it has active metaphysical properties with strong healing powers. Shungite comes from a mine in Russia. I will be keeping my bag of Shungite close by me.
Today is Sunday, yet the mailman just came by to deliver a package to me. Folks, you just can't beat ordering via the internet (mostly Amazon). The package contains gift cards that I ordered for birthday gifts for a couple of my great grandchildren.
Now I think I'll do a bit of blog reading before I go looking for some mischief to get into. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
