The Stuff That's going around

I caught a virus. Dr. discovered A Fib. I did not notice any difference at all but was then attacked by a chest cold. Put in Hospital from the 6th to the 10th. Home and still not feeling good. Our son came from Texas and was a savior.

Follow up yesterday and doing better. Car even started in  12 degree weather.

Thanks for thinking of me Sister and Far Side.

Carpet Cleaning

Today was the big day for the carpet cleaners to arrive. One efficient man, lots of hoses and a strong smell of cleaning stuff. It was not unpleasant but it was very strong. I had to go out on the back porch to breathe for a while. The forecast from two days ago failed - from a promised 68 down to about 40. We had planned to sit out there with the dogs and soak up the sun. Instead, Lee stayed in the middle bedroom with the dogs for an hour and twenty minutes. I was amazed that they didn't bark when they heard a different voice.

So nice to get that cleaning out of the way. I do wish we had tile floors!  When they built this house wall to wall carpet was all the rage. Now it's hard wood or a facsimile there of.  Times and styles change! When I was a kid, the four houses we lived in during my growing up years all had wooden floors with a large rug in the main living room but none in the bedrooms.

Saturday - Half Gone

I slept till eleven o'clock this morning. Who knows why? I was not up late last night.

We managed to get out in the 59 degree weather to buy peanuts for the squirrels and birds, draw money out of the bank and pick up a few groceries.

What an exciting day.

A warm up is promised for this week-end. That will be so nice!

Another trip to the store yesterday. I managed to get everything on the list. Lee waited in the car. He couldn't believe the short time I was inside the grocer's. I didn't time it but it was probably less than half an hour.

The Market Place is so big that it is my place for a hike.
