Tuesday and the Speech Therapist

Hey, Y'all,
Well, I just put supper on to cook and thought I would take time to log on and create a new post. It will be quick. We are continuing to enjoy beautiful weather here. Gramps and I sat on the front porch for a couple of hours this morning and just enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine.

Slept with the windows open for the past few nights, and it is wonderful to have the cool air flowing over our beds. I even got up during the night and opened the living room windows and opened the front door, latched the storm door of course with the window up to let in air.

We had a visit from the speech therapist today who is going to help Gramps with memory skills. Her name is Carol, and she is a delightful young lady. She will be back on Thursday for a while.

Tonight we are having baked salmon loaf, devilled eggs, green beans, and cooked carrots. I go into the kitchen and take inventory to see what we have that I can throw together in an hour's time to have for a meal. That is what I came up with for this evening. Ooops. Just heard a timer. Be right back.

Well, not actually right back...We ate supper and I put the dishes in the dishwasher to wash (not something I do every day, just once in awhile). I usually wash them by hand and put them in the dishwasher to drain. There are only two of us, and we don't use a lot of dishes at a time.

We go in to the doctor's office tomorrow morning to have bloodwork done for our regular visit. So I have promised Gramps that we will go to Shoney's for breakfast after we get our blood drawn. It has been more than a month since we have had a Shoney's breakfast. We will have to be there at 8:15 so it will be a chore to get the man up and on our way by 8 a.m. Fortunately, we are only a few minutes away from our family doctor.

I just talked to my brother, Hugh, and he went to the doctor today to have some little warts or moles taken off his eyelid and it was a very quick thing. No problem at all.
Well, I guess that is all for today. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. New adventures tomorrow maybe...Who can say? Love to all. Bye.

Hi Grammy, just checking in on you this morning to see how you and Gramps are doing. It sounds like you are getting back in the groove... as you said in your post yesterday. Hope everything goes smoothly at your "blood check" today. The weather is beautiful here in Bristol also. I think I have "Fall Fever". My "Get Up And Go"...has "Got up and Went" LOL Love, Clara
