Good morning. Tis a bit on the gray side today. The temp is at 55F degrees with bits of light rain. Later the temps will rise to the upper sixties with sunshine. Well, at least that's what my weather app says.
Well, yesterday Joe stopped by WalMart on his way home from work and picked up my small grocery order. I have to say that everything I ordered was there and with no substitutions. Awesome! Of course, I don't order anything that has an expiration date to be concerned about. Like dairy products, meat, fresh veggies, etc. Plus I only order things that I've already had a chance to check the nutrition facts for sodium content.
I borrowed an interesting image from the web to share. Did you know this already? I did not. But when you think about it, it really does make sense.
One of my favorite TV programs, Shop LC, has been having a huge warehouse clearance sale. It's a week long sale so you know what I've been watching. Nope, I haven't bought anything, but I'm enjoying watching all the wonderful bargains. They've had quite a nice mix of items. Jewelry, clothes, housewares, etc.
Yesterday I had planned on spending time clearing out all my junk mail. However, a phone call wondering if I was okay changed my plans. It seems my daughter Deanne had been texting me all through the night and the morning and was getting no response from me. Huh? After much checking, it was decided that the problem was with my phone. However we could not figure out how to fix it.
The evening before, my grandson Bobby and Amber were in the kids' bedroom tucking them into bed. However, the door had closed and was locked from the other side and they could not get out of the room. Not wanting to kick the door open and break it, Bobby decided to go out a window and come back in through the front door. (Did I mention that they live on the second floor?)
OOPS! His Super Dad cape did not work and when he hit the ground, he landed on his ankle and broke it all to pieces. He did try to set his ankle and splint it, but then Deanne got a call to pick him up and take him to the hospital. It was a really nasty break and would require surgery to put in a rod and pin (s), etc. Hours later, he was admitted and moved to a room to be scheduled for surgery later in the day.
They operated yesterday afternoon, and Deanne is keeping me updated. Bobby, I'm praying that the surgery went well and that you mend and heal quickly. Meema loves you Bob O Link.
Meanwhile, Audrey and I were texting back and forth (and calling on the land line phone) to see if maybe she could figure out how to fix my cell phone. We're not sure what was done (or not done) but after a couple hours, my phone was working and my text messages were back to normal.
When the mail came yesterday, there was a box containing another of my catalogue orders. After checking everything, I spent some time reading a new book that I had ordered for me. Oh my, what fun I was having. The book is about rock painting.
Doesn't this look like fun? One of the projects in the book really caught my interest and I'd like to try making it. It's a nativity set. There are more pieces than what is shown in this picture, but this is the basic set. Isn't this pretty?
I went online to price the paints, spray, etc. Depending on how many paints you wanted to buy, the price is really not very expensive. And the book shows you what type of stones to use and step by step instruction on how to paint each figure. You can even buy the stones online. I priced them too and they weren't expensive either. I think once I get finished with my cards and calendars and my holiday shopping, I'm wanting to try to make the nativity set.
So, I guess today I'll attempt to tackle that pile of junk mail again. Tomorrow morning, Pogo has an early appointment (9 a.m.) with the eye doctor. My hope is that his cataracts can be removed without any after effects. So, I won't be blogging until probably after lunch.
Now I'm off to make a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous dayl
Hugs, Edna B.
