Hi Kathy. Thanks for commenting on my "Heroes" blog; I did really mean it. I'm still so happy for you that the dialysis is over and hope that all is going well for you. I've been doing some gardening, which is a bit complicated in our shady yard. We have herbs, been planting impatience, hanging containers of petunias (which I keep changing to follow the sun!), and of course hanging hummingbird feeders. I do love this time of year! My best, my friend.
Hi Kathy, I heard that you had some allegies too. It has been sunny here and I have been outside a lot, eyes watering, sneezing, runny nose. Right now I am off my allergy medicine. Today it has started to rain and is supposed to rain all week, so it should wash all the "stuff" out of the air. I have been walking every day, lifting weights and doing some good yoga. I am feeling strong and very hopeful that I am going to have a good recovery. I have been enjoying walking with Suri and having time off while my docs are figuring out what is going on. How have you been doing? Did you get your bum phone replaced and up and working? I really like my new phone now that I have figured it out it is great for keeping track of appointments with the calendar and I can press the big buttons on the dial pad. Hope that you are doing well. How are things? Have you still been going to the gym? Hope you get your air conditioning straightened out. Your building that you live in sounds lovely. I love older buildings and I see from the pictures of your window that it looks like you have some lovely views from your window. Hope that you are well. How is your computer? I am getting ready to take a walk in the rain. Hope I can find an umbrella somewhere around the house. I think there is one in the front closet, but I will have to dig arouund in there for it. Have a nice day!
Hi Kathy, it is so good to hear from you. I heard that you are having trouble with your computer again. I hope in spite of the noises, that it is doing okay. I am trying to give myself a manicure and pedicure right now. It is funny how things that used to be easy take a lot of effort to complete now. After I get finished I am going to wash the dog. She is gentle and calm so I don't think I will have a hard time with that. I will feel so much better when she is all shiny and wearing her red bandana. How have you been doing? How is Trevor doing now that he is back home? I hope that you haven't had any kitty bites lately. I found some of those whopping big strawberries that you had. Boy were they yummy. Hope that things are going well for you. Have you done any creative decorating projects or found any new treasures while you have been cleaning? I have been walking every day. The weather here is perfect. Warm and sunny and thankfully not humid. Figured out how to use that phone. I really like it. I am jealous of Reed! I love orchids, ha ha! It must have been fun to talk to him. Well, I am off to tackle the dog beauty spa, wish me luck. Take care.
Good morning,Kathy. The bed felt so good I stayed there longer. I will have Tom take a photo of the orchid and ut it on my page. Lot of thunder lightning very little rain. Going to foot doctor at one. My computer went out due to a crack of lightning..I now iknow where to pull a plug reinsert it and get back in business. My bvirthday dinner tomorrow. I did not want it on the day as I had TOPS next day. Trying to think where I want to go. Poor Tom he is taking the Historic Trust Board on a tour of the UF..he said 29 have signed up for it then he will beat it over here. Hope all is well with you. Did you get your A/C unit in the window? Take good care of yourself.Oh you should see the zinnia boy are they growing I planted enough seeds I could line the highway. Take care. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. Last night nothing on my mind I just could not sleep so got up before 4. It was so good talking to you...ypu were so kind to call.About 8 my AC man coming to service the unit before the summer. If this Spring is any indication itis going to be another hot summer. Russ's leg was acting up again last night...a lot of pain. Enjoying looking at your photos again. At the TOPS sale I bought a name brand wach for a $1..I think it needs a battery. After the AC man goes I need to tacjle the laundry. Do not wait too long to get your window unit it in. Any plans for today? Take good care of yourself. I care. Hugs,Reed
Dear Cathy, Thanks for the very beautiful birthday card. I love that flower too. Not many down here grow them. I do not feel 85 but young in heart and in spirit. It is so great having you as a friend. You are very dear to me. My rain dance did not work. Lightning no thunder no rain. Russ is on his walker wayering the trees and plants. I bet Tom comes home from the Gym..goes after Gym,to Publix and gets a small birthday cake. TOPS tomorrow White Elephant Sale I have uncluttered and have 3 huge bahs of stuff. We use the money to help those people who go to the TOPS State Convention. I hope this finds you chipper and doing well. You have a great day. HUGS,Reed
Hi Kathy- I must tell you that the dessert your nephew Trevor picked certainly looks good. Saw it on Reed's page. It is lucky he had you and his mom with big spoons nearby. Esther looks cute. Sounds like you all had a nice dinner --minus the noise. I must tell you, my husband planted some really nice flowers and plants in our pots and on the lawn. That very same night, deer came and ate many of the plants. And today squirrels dug up the flowers in the pots. I guess we can't win. Have a nice week. Cat
Good Morning.Kathy. Thanks for yur nice message and the nice photos. I now know who is who. Too bad they selected that restaurant. I had a roast loin of pork. A lot left over so Tom is going to take it home and do something with barbecue sauce. I went to church Home Depot transplanted zinnias so that was me day. They promised rain all day. NOTHING. Tom is at the locfal Gym. Then we will go intown for haircuts. Russ and I look like shepherds. Any plans for today? STILL NO RAIN. My water bill was very high from all the watering I had to do. Take care and have a lovely day. HUGS,Reed
is it the salt in the chips, or the carbs, or both? sometimes we make pita chips, cut them into wedges, tear the two parts apart, brush with olive oil and broil. really good, and probably less salt than chips. very good with hummus. I did a real lol too on the BB&b. 83 degrees here today.
Good afternoon.Kathy. Busy day. Grocery shopping. I went crazy spemt $241 wonderful sales. Low sodium soups for Russ. We went to Bed Bath,Beyond to get seat cushions for our kitchen chairs. The chairs are maple but now that we are older we find them a little tough on our rear ends. I did a rain danc in my bikini but it did no good...N rain. Russ can put some weight on his leg and walk on it a little but it still depends on the walk. Is this Gtaduation Day? I hope all goes well. I love avocados. Take good care.HUGS,Reed
hi Kathy, we were walking yesterday and someone in the neighborhood had a large grouping of beautiful purple iris, I immediately thought of you. ours are just coming out now. guacamole sounds so good. I make mine with a potato masher.
Good Morning Kathy. How are things with you? This is the day. Russ sees the orthopedic surgeon. Will he need a hip replacement? Will just physical therapy help? Stay tuned. Remember the Adrenal gland growth? We had forgotten it. The surgeon did not he called yesterday. Russ sees him May 22. What else can happen to that guy. Insurance...I had a terrible time. They had me in UNICARE. They want me to go mail order. I said no. My mail box is a long walk. I do not go everyday and i did want my prescription to go there. They finally agreed not to make me. I never heard of that outfit you are talking about. Make up a story thieves will steal things will get wet you hav 3 wooden legs and cannot get your mail. Why don't they leave us alone? NO RAIN. They keep saying 70% chance but it never happens. My birthday the 15th...I hope Russ will be able to go out as I would like some fried clams. I will be 39. (85) What are your plans for today? I will be waiting to hear what the surgeon tells Russ. Have a wonderful day. HUGS,Reed
Morning,Kathy. We did not get the rain. Last Thursday a troubled young man opened the back door of the school bus. He died. He was AB lived in Jacksonville. They donated his organs. John is AB the only one on the list that is whey he got the transplant so fast. He is still in the hospital. I am doing well. Russ still cannot walk on that leg. He called the surgen and asked if his appointment could be moved up. YES. He goes tomorrow. I hope it does not mean a hip replacement. He can drive. Taking me to TOPS. He said sitting down no proplem but he cannot stand on the leg without the walker. My BG 109 with all the stress I am happy with that. Did your shawl ever dry. I hate wood smoke smell on things. You have a great day. Be careful. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. Do you think God will forgive me if I tell you this? He is a miserable person. Treats his wife like a slave street angel house devil and he gets one in 2 months. Thunder thunder heavy rain trees down but all around us not a drop in St. Augustine. I am not leaving the house I want to be sure Russ can take me to TOPS tomorrow. He is doing so/so. Still needs the walker. Lot of services but my income too high. Council on Aging just does doctors. I discovered a lady in Seagate whio will do errands shop etc so I can call her. I hope you had a good night's sleep. Any plans for today? Tom is in town for a big meeting. He might drop in here for dinner. You have a great day and take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed
Good Monday Morning, Kathy. My friend John is getting kidney transplant today. He was on the list not quite 2 months. It is very humid here. They keep saying rain they must mean Paris as it does not happen here. MASS yesterday at 5..n deacon so Tom had to be in the Processional holding the Gospel. He did the first Reading. I told him next he would be Pope. Russ still using the walker. Tom had Russ drive all around the complex so guess he can drive ok. We would be in a tough spot if he couldn;t. How have you been? Done some more uncluttering? I do not plan to do a thing today LOL> Take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed
