Help is Good

 We have Home Health Care coming to our house. Helping with vital signs, any changes etc. And then there is PT. And no, not like someone very dear to me, I do not find exercising "fun!"

Saw the doctor today. He gave me a choice of another visit in six months or a year. What???? I'm so old I remember what the physician said was LAW!

 I appreciate the nice thoughts. Now have two stents all of a sudden - CHF. Guess they couldn't see it before. Quite a change in life style but we're learning new ways to do things!

How NOT to Spend Your 68 Wedding Anniversary

 In the hospital ICU with chest pains, X ray and CT scan, lab work and nothing is wrong.  Call Monday morning for follow up and the first date is Friday afternoon. That sounds like quite a while off to me  but I'll try to make it.

The Big Six Eight

 Today is our anniversary. Who knew it would last after knowing each other three and a half months? I guess he put up with me and I put up with him at certain times (!) but we not only love each other, we like each other. 

Seems to be working so far.

This is our wedding photo. My three friends waited out side the manse and Carlene, Barb or Darline took this picture. She forgot to wind the film - remember those quaint operations? So I guess you would call this our wedding album.

 Wednesday means today it "put out the polycarts" day.  Every other week the tan recycle cart goes out.

That's about as exciting as our days are here. They were not exciting before so there is not a big change! I did put on my mask and go to Hobby Lobby for some yarn. I think their "I Love This Yarn" is better than the other brand I usually use. I could see no reason to make afghans or hats from expensive types of wool. Now a sweater or a dress - Yes!

The dress didn't shrink! The girl just hadn't reached her full height which is now taller than her grandmother ever was! Good yarn in this one made for me way back in the '70's.

 We've had the most unusual coolness for the past several days. It ended yesterday with the high in the nineties but the mornings are still cool.

Yesterday was grocery ordering day. We picked it up at 7:00 this morning. No other cars were there. 

My sister-in-law in Jersey talk on Skype every day (I may have mentioned this before.) But my computer seemed  very slow over the week-end. The younger son whose job involves computers, spend an awfully long amount of time on my device from the far Northwest. It seems a little speedier but I am convinced that Skype is having problems. There are freezing pictures, cutting out on voices and just a very irritating condition going on! I searched for a place to reach them to ask about or report the trouble to them but can find nothing. Maybe so many folks are hunkered down that the system is overloaded.

We have been having lovely cool weather. I have been dumping stuff from the garage shelves and cleaning up some junk inside. If we had a basement, it would be the home to all this stuff!

I made stew (again!) and it's much easier to use the slow cooker. Even without browning the meat, it's very tasty. Thanks to Mrs. McCormick's flavor pack.
