Walmart Morning

Howdy You-all,
Yeah, I was about to have withdrawal symptoms. I had only been to Walmart a couple of times over the past two weeks and I needed to remedy that.

So this morning, after breakfast and cleaning the kitchen of dirty dishes, I decided it was time to go. I asked my husband, Dub, if he would like to go with me. He replied in the negative, so I took off.

I decided I needed a few new flowers to replace those that gave up the ghost while I was gone to Texas. So first I went to the wonderful place known as Lowe's and purchased a needed extension for my water hose, and a new nozzle, then selected the flowers.

From there, I went to Wally World next door to Lowe's, (isn't that so convenient?), and the people were there running around like the proverbial headless chickens, so I joined them and found what I wanted there, and Oh I felt so good joining into the fray. From there to the grocery store to pick up some stuff there, and then on to home. Can you believe I was gone for nearly 3 hours? Unbelievable! It is so easy to lose track of time in those places.

My husband and I had a really pleasant time with our "Quiet Time" last night. It was wonderful. I look forward to this evening, too, as I am sure he must.

Not much going on here. Hope this does not bore the reader. My husband is in the beginning stages of dementia, and sometimes things do get interesting, especially when he decides he has lost or misplaced something and we go on "the hunt" to find it. Most usually it is when we are almost ready to go somewhere. I have decided it is best to just serenely help him look, whether it delays us or not.

Well, it is time to go prepare some supper. I guess I will plant the flowers (in pots) this evening in the cool? of the day. Temperatures are in the upper 80's. We are hoping for some rain. It looked like it would rain last night, but, nope, it just passed on over.

That's all from Blabbin' Grammy this evening. Signing off for now. Love to all of you.

I'm sure Wally World breathed a sigh of relief to feel your credit card slide through it's charge box! :-) I'm not sure the economy there could survive without you!

I'm so glad you're enjoying the Quiet Times together. It's been a rock for our family.

Hi from Kentucky! I was blog hopping and stopped to read yours. I could not go on without Wally World and Lowes. My two favorite places! My significant other and I enjoy quiet times in the mornings when we are having our coffee. I loved the blog about the guy saying he had not had a "bite" in days and you said you "bit" him. I laughed out loud. Nice visiting you. Have a good weekend.

I understand the beginning stages of dementia. My dad is often looking for his wallet, his hearing aids, his TEETH! Fun to hear your stories. I'm from Bethany Baptist in Peoria, Daniel's church (for not). Thanks for sharing! God's peace to you from IL!
