Sittin' Around on Sunday

Hey, Y'all,
Well, it is a Sunday afternoon, and I'm not doing much of anything today. Did some laundry about 9 a.m. and put it in the dryer. It is very quiet here, and I have been playing a computer game. It is one that I have played many times and been defeated many times. It is called 7 Wonders II. I play it until I get tired of being told "you have failed to build the wonder." The player gets 4 chances to build, and there are several levels that one goes through to build it. Of course there are seven wonders to build. I have built them all two times and am working on the third time to build them all.

Gramps is still in bed. He is now able to get up by himself without any help from me, so he is progressing. I will probably go in after while and insist that he arise from his bed of ease.,and have some breakfast at 4 in the afternoon.

Of course, we didn't go to church this morning, and I know it will make the day seem even longer, as well as causing the week to seem longer. They are having a cookout at the community center, and we won't make that either.

I put a tender chuck roast into the crock pot last night and it is yummy. It cooked all night. I had two sandwiches of it for lunch (with mayo). I may make some vegetable beef soup with the rest of it for tomorrow. Then maybe make some cornbread to eat with it. Mmmm, good to eat any time.

Update on brother John in Phoenix. As of last evening he was still in the hospital. They were administering a 24-hour iv drip to help his heart. They had cleared up the blood in his sputum, so that was to the good.

Not much shaking here today. I may work on the quilt pieces today. I haven't decided yet. I do have to water the flowers some time today. I have already put the car in the layby area of the yard so that I can pull the water hose down through the carport without any obstruction. The roses require a lot of water, so I try to water them every other day, if we have no rain. I water the flowers on the porch at the same time.

There is good television on the Hallmark Channel on Sunday afternoon, (murder mysteries), and also on the Game Show Network.

Thought for today: "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and besides, if you reach into a bush to catch a bird, something may grab you instead." ha.

Well, this is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for the day. Remember when you feel most alone, that is when you are not. God is always as close as a prayer. Bye for now.

I am glad your brother and husband are both a little better and hope they continue to recuperate. The roast sounds so good and I love cornbread better than any kind of bread. Have a good week.

Trying to catch up on my blog reading! I'm sorry you guys missed the dinner at your church. I know you had been looking forward to that.

Actually, it is Daniel, not Whitney leaving you these comments. I'm just signed in on her computer! TN said...

Hi Grammy, Glad everone is getting better. I've had a good Sunday. See my blog. Your roast sounds wonderful. Anything cooked in a crock pot is good.
