:Unique Antiques Meeting Today

Hey, Y'all,
Well, we got a big day of doin's today. Not really, but we do need to get going soon. I just got up about 7:30 this morning and took my Nexium (for acid reflux- probably more than you wanted to know) so since it is almost 8:30, I can have my breakfast of cold cereal and read a few chapters in my current paperback book.

Yesterday morning, I took our friend (and surrogate son-in-law) to have a medical procedure done and everything seemed to come out okay. He was weak from having drunk liquids all day the day before, but after we left the local hospital I took him to Perkins' Restaurant and we had breakfast. We took some gravy, biscuits and sausage to Gramps and he was just taking his blood sugar test and was ready to eat. (It was noon and he should jolly well have been up and ready to eat.)

After he had his breakfast, I had to run back into Jefferson City and drop off an obituary to put into the local paper, and then pick up some finger food stuff to take to the Unique Antiques today. That is what our church senior citizens group is named. We will be going down to the church today and eating finger foods and swapping "white elephant" gifts. Of course, we make a game of it, where anyone who picks out a gift, can exchange it for one that has already been selected. You know how that goes, I am sure. It is a lot of fun. Sometimes the same gift gets passed around a whole lot.

Gramps always enjoys that game, so he is willing to go (or at least last night he was).
After I picked up the food preps stuff for today, I was able to sit down and work on the quilt and do the finishing touches on a couple of more squares before the day was over.

I need to stop now, and get Gramps up, have our breakfast, get him and myself cleaned up and ready to go. That will probably take the better part of two hours, which will only leave us about thirty minutes before time to go.

Also, there is laundry to do today sometime and oh, you know the kind of things that just need to be done during any given day.

Thank you all for all the well wishes sent our way on the passing on of my little bro, John. May God's richest blessings rest on each of you. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for the time being. Love to you all. Bye for now.

Hi Grammy. Hope you enjoy your day at the Unique Antiques Meeting. I really enjoyed seeing all the pictures of your brother and am so sorry about his passing. I know he will be missed so much by your family. I have been so busy trying to get ready for Christmas that I have neglected my blog and making comments. Hopefully, I will get back on track soon!

Reporting tomorrow on our day out today.
