Our Initial Movie Friday

Hey, Y'all,

Up early this morning, after having had a pretty good night's sleep. Last night, I realized that I was sleeping on a pillow that was losing its shape (really bad). I have been having pain in my shoulder and upper arm from sleeping on them, so I went to the closet and got out a reserve pillow. When I laid my head on it, it kind of held it up from the bed enough to where I wasn't flat on the bed with my head. That kind of gave my shoulder and upper arm more room. So, it wasn't long after I went to bed that I got really comfortable, and leg got a cramp in the whole lower part where I had been sewing late into the night with my feet propped on an under the bed storage box.

Woiuldn't you just know it! Well, I kind of rubbed my lower leg a while (I didn't want to get up and put bio-freeze on my leg and then have to scrub my hands to get the menthol smell off of them) and finally went to sleep.

Last night I stayed up to watch President Obama on Jay Leno's late show, and was not surprised to see him joking with Jay just like any other guest would do. (No comment on my thoughts about the appearance).

This morning we were up by 8:30 and had our normal cereal breakfast. Gramps got into the bathtub this morning and got a wonderful shower and got dressed for our trip into Knoxville that took place around 1 p.m. (Of course, I got my wonderful shower as well). ha.

We got to Imazo's house about 1:40 and waited for Mae to call us that she had finished with her beauty shop appointment, and so we went to pick her up at her house and went to one of our favorite eating establishments in Knoxville, Louis' Original Restaurant. I had my ususal: spaghetti and meat sauce, but of course did not eat it all. Imazo is still not up to eating a lot and took a lot of her chicken strips home with her. She said her stomach is just not tuned up yet for spaghetti. She is still kind of off her feed (old southern expression meaning she jest ain't hungry yet).

Well, after we got back to Imazo's, I had the movie on a DVD and was going to use her player, but doggone it, she didn't know how to operate it, and I couldn't figure it out, so we went to Mae's house, and she had the directions written out (thanks to her granddaughter) and we were able to watch "Nanny McPhee". We leaned back in our chairs and just had a wonderful time laughing about all the antics in the movie. I am hoping to continue the movie viewing and make a regular Friday afternoon event of it. I believe Imazo really enjoyed it, as well as Mae.

While at Imazo's I got a picture of her and the tulips that her David and Andrea (her son and daughter-in-law) who live in Arizona sent to her and that she received yesterday afternoon. She was really tickled to get them. As you can see, they are beautiful.
Imazo gave Mae and me some poppy seeds to grow some beautiful flowers this summer. I am still hoping to make a flower bed at the side of the carport. I will need help with that, though. I am hoping my neighbor can help me with bringing the wood and dirt from Walmart. I have yet to ask him and probably will get it done next Saturday.
Well, this is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for the evening. More tomorrow I guess. Love to all of you and I hope you have a good night's rest. Bye for now.

The tulips are beautiful and Imazo looks really good. I watched a great movie the other night called The Secret Life of Bees. It is kind of a tear jerker but so good and has a lot of good actors in it.
I love to watch movies and finally joined netflix so I get a new one each week. It is cheaper then renting them!

Movie day sounded fun Ruby. I bet Imazo and Mae really enjoyed that. Mark and I went to see a movie yesterday. He had a gift card, he also joined Netflix and we have really enjoyed seeing movies cheaper than going to the movies. Of course, we still have to have popcorn with them. Imazo looked really good. She called today (21st) and talked to her for a little bit, had to tell her I would call her back, I will do that tomorrow afternoon. She does sound better.
Love you all
Darlene and Mark
