Sunday's Child ...
Closing out a long, interesting day...
I was up early after major storms all night Saturday. Horrendous lightning and thunder and heavy rains. The house was lit up like it was noontime, and the animals were all scared to death. So, naturally, I wound up with a queen sized bed full of dogs and cats. lol
My phone rang at about 10 til 8 this morning and it was my son, saying he thought he'd come over this morning, and did I have any coffee made yet? As a matter of fact, I did. I asked if he wanted some breakfast too, and he laughed and said no, he'd already eaten. He lives about 20 minutes from us, and so he was here in a flash and we sat around talking until about noon.
Naturally, that pretty much ate up my morning, and it was too late to start any kind of projects before I had to leave for MissB's house, so I did a little dusting, lit some incense and picked up some clumps of dog hair, and called it a day. Made myself a wonderful brunch of steak and eggs and toast and ate like a queen.
Felt like there were a million things I'd hoped to get done this weekend and didn't. The weather has not been cooperating (for me or nearly anyone else, it seems), and I am hoping tomorrow will be better. Tonights rain has not materialized (so far), so maybe that is a good omen. Supposed to be back up to 90 tomorrow with high humidity...and possibly rain in the evening. Enough with the water, already!
The Irishman has called me every day from Wisconsin and twice today. This is not typical of him when he goes on a trip. He will be home sometime tomorrow evening, probably while I'm at work. I thought maybe tomorrow morning I will bake him a pie...I have missed him and am glad he's on his way back to me. I know he has had a great time with his family, and it seems that at the christening this morning, baby Lily reached down while they were holding her for the ceremony, and splashed water all over the minister from the christening basin. That's my girl. LOL
MissB is getting worse quickly...her memory is slipping more every day. Today's average length of remembering anything recent was about 6 minutes. It made for an interesting day. The human brain is a complex thing, and watching this progression up close and personal is really making me pay attention to information about avoiding this epidemic disease. Another friend of mine was telling me yesterday (she's a tad older than me) that she cannot remember anything any more without a list, and has come across information about thyroid problems (for which she has been medicated for years) causing this to happen. She confronted her doctor about the results of her tests and asked him if he had done the newer T3 (or is it T4)? tests and he sighed at her and said...oh now....she said she nearly slapped him. She had to demand that he do this particular test and he finally agreed. She is getting very scared, and we talked about how imperative it is for women to be proactive in their own health care.
Well, I am ready to lay these old bones to rest for the night. Everyone is in and sleeping all around me, and the critters are all fed. Plenty of water and plenty of time to sleep.
I'm ready...that big old sleigh bed is calling me....
Be Blessed !
