More Pics of Visit to Illinois

Hi, Y'all,

We are back home and beginning to rest up a little more. It seems we must have brought the rain with us when we returned home. I did get out today to do some running (not literally, you understand. I wish I could literally run!) to New Market Post Office to pick up our mail which we had them hold for us; to stop by the church and visit with one of our friends, Judy, who is secretary there; to go to the drug store; to refill the gas tank; to pick up some groceries.

I did get the clothes dried this morning, but they are still in the dryer. Don't worry, they'll not be too wrinkled. I'll just hang them up and the wrinkles will fall out, or they won't, but by the time we have them on, our bodies will press out the wrinkles. ha.

My afternoon nap sure did feel good, too. I am beginning to really need the afternoon nap. Don't most 75 year-olds take a mid day nap? Of course, when one stays up the night before until 2 a.m., playing on the computer, do they not need a nap the next day?

Gramps slept on a motel pillow on Monday night, instead of using the pillow we brought for him from home, so he woke up Tuesday morning (and this morning) with his neck and shoulders all stiff and sore. I had to help him out of bed twice during the night. Hope it doesn't take him long to recover from it. He is not a little bitty fellow, and is not easy to help pull up to a sitting position.
Tomorrow, I get to go back to my dentist and get the permanent crown put on my tooth. Mercy, I dread that! Maybe it will be the last work I will have to have done for a long time! Let us hope so!

I would like to put pics that Whitney took and put on her blog site of Gramps and I holding the newest member of their family, Ellie, who was adopted from Guatemala in January. She is adorable, and a lovely addition to the family. For more about her, just click on the link to the blogspot of Whitney.

Their whole history of the adoption is there and is quite inspiring to follow. Besides, there are lots of cute pictures and videos there.

Well, it is about time for me to wind this up for today.

Thought for today: Psalm 16:8 "I have set the Lord always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved."

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. More tomorrow. God bless each of you who reads this. Bye for now.

I am glad you are home and getting some rest. You should take a nap every day. I don't everyday but sometimes. My Bob takes one every day. The child is just beautiful. I will check out the link and read all about it. Thanks for your comments on my blog. TN said...

Hi Grammy, Glad you are back. The pictures are good. As far as the nap goes... sometimes I try to sleep during the day, but sleep just won't come. I think it has to be dark to go to sleep. There is a room in my basement that is totally dark. I've been thinking about putting a bed there so I can go to sleep during the day. My husband sleeps more during the day than he does at night.
