Happy BIrthday Kevin

August 30, 2018

Good morning.  Today looks really pretty outside my door, and the temps are cooling down today to the low to mid eighties.  Awesome!  Tomorrow should be in the seventies.  Wowsie!    I have to do some grocery shopping, so I'm really appreciating these cooler temps.

Sadly, I also have to pick up refills of my breathing meds.  Would you believe that my co-pay for these two meds is almost nine hundred dollars?  Thankfully, this is for a three month subscription.  I think I'm going to look into Hemp Oil.  It seems to be good for a lot of things, so maybe it can be used as a breathing medicine.  That would be nice because it is a whole lot cheaper than man made drugs.  If anyone is already using it, please let me know what you think of it.

Well, in the midst of all the madness these past couple of days, my grandson Kevin had a milestone birthday.  Kevin turned twenty one a couple days ago!  Our two pound miracle baby is all grown up and is quite a handsome and really nice young man.

Here are photos of Kevin, first starting to play basketball, then at a picnic gathering with his Mom (Deanne) and then at work with his Dad (Eddie - they are electricians). 

Kevin, I'm so proud of the young man you've become.  I'm wishing you much love and happiness.  Happy Birthday Kevin.  I love you.

Yesterday I got up at 5:10 a.m. to be ready for the delivery of the refrigerators.  Deanne called me shortly thereafter to make sure I was up.  I had received a call letting me know that the delivery would be between 7:15 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. 

I was taking no chances and was going to be ready by 7 a.m.  Thank goodness because they were here before 8:30.  Wow, I have to say that these two young fellows were awesome and very professional.  That big old side by side went right out the door and down off the porch without a problem.  Then the new fridge came in. 

Next they took out the other fridge (in the main part of the house) and replaced it with a new one.  In between installing it, they had to move my tall freezer over about an inch and bring it forward about two inches.  They did, and everything fit perfectly. 

As soon as they left, Deanne got here to help me put away all the food stuffs in both fridges.  I took care of my stuff and Deanne put away the tenants' food stuff.  Deanne, you are a blessing, and I really appreciate your help.  Afterwards, I was able to rest a while before starting to put things back in their places.  (my rooms are small so a lot of things had to be moved to make room for the delivery guys to do their job.)

Around 1:30 in the afternoon, Pogo took up his place by the door to watch for when Joe comes home.  It' was going to be a while, at least a couple hours.  After a while, Pogo lay down on the scatter rug he was sitting on, put his nose down into the rug and fell sound asleep.  He never saw Joe's truck pull into the driveway.  He did get his treat though, because Joe called out to him.  The heat has been hard on Pogo too.

On another happy note, I had ordered some yarn and it arrived a couple of days ago.  This order included enough yard to make another new afghan.  A Grey one.  I won't start it until after I get my Christmas projects finished, but I'll have the yarn for when I need it. 

I've never made a grey afghan, and Herrschners came out with a new variegated color - Tunnel Vision.  Here are the colors for the Grey afghan.  Medium Grey, Dark Grey and Tunnel Vision.  I think this afghan is going to be really pretty.

Now it's time to do a bit of blog reading and start in on a few chores.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay cool and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Why is medicine so expensive? I have the same problem. Fortunately I have a prescription plan from work for a couple of more years, but then I don't know what I will do.

Happy birthday to Kevin! What a nice young man he is.

So glad you were able to get your fridges in the house OK. My house is old and small and it is difficult to fit things through the doorways and around the furniture. Take your time putting things back into place. It is too hot to rush things. Another day of 90+ degree temperatures here and then it's going to cool down tomorrow.

So happy that you got the replacement appliances and that the adjustments were made to get them in😊. Enjoy your day dear friend. Hugs

Oh my Kevin is very handsome. I love his photos. Happy Late Birthday to Kevin. I hope his day was extra nice.

So glad to know that you were able to get the appliances in and you had a great helper. Nothing like a daughter!!!

The grays are very pretty and it will certainly be an awesome afghan. I really like that Tunnel Vision. The other two will match it just perfectly.

I wish you luck with the Hemp Oil. How are those Gummies working out for you? I have been meaning to ask and have forgotten to do so. Hugs to you and sweet Pogo. I know the heat has been hard on him. Now that things may start to cool down, you both can feel better. Hugs, Beth xxxx
