It has been a few days since I last posted, so I figured it was time to update a little bit. Sunday was a very quiet day, and not much happened then. Monday, when Gramps' therapist came to work with him, I took off for the Wal-mart (withdrawal pains were hitting me) and so I stopped at the Food City Gas n/ go and filled up my little car, and stopped at the bank to rob it....ha, not really....just withdrew a little cash and headed on to Wal-mart. I was only gone a couple of hours, and when I got back, I fixed some supper for Gramps and me.
Yesterday, some of my teacher friends and I had lunch at the Hillside Grill in Morristown, and had a wonderful time. Most of us are readers and exchanged some books while we were there. What fun! I look forward to reading those that I borrowed. We met at 11:30, and did not leave until 1:45. Just sitting and talking about anything and everything. You know how women can talk. It was a regular "hen party". Ha ha. One of the teachers brought bags of sweet potatoes that she had grown on their farm. Of course, we appreciated that and I look forward to cooking some for supper tonight.
I think I will make some parmesan chicken wings for supper as well. Yum!
I decided it was time to do a little furniture polishing yesterday, so I dusted and polished furniture in our bedroom. Today, the living room gets it. Please don't faint!!! I have been sick for so long, I knew it was time to be doing regular cleaning stuff and feel extra blessed!
Also, when I got up this morning, I knew it was time to clean off my work table and get ready to sew again, so I did. I will be stitching on the quilt I am making for my grandson, Will (BJ). I hope to get started on the hand stitching by next week.
"I've stayed around and layed around this old place too long...Summer's gone along and winter's coming on..I've stayed around and layed around this old place too long , and I Feel like I gotta quilt right on..." Ha, old song paraphrased.
Lately, Gramps has been talking about putting all of his cars that he has been collecting together and dividing them out to give to his grandsons. The other day he started talking about it again, and wanted to go to the basement and get cars he thought were down there. He told me that he knew we had some in a desk down there. I said, "honey, we don't have a desk down there" and he said, "oh yes, we do. I was down there the other day and saw them". Of course he has not been in the basement. I keep it locked and if necessary, I will put a padlock on it to keep him out of it. Anyway, I went into the bedroom and found the cars he was talking about and finally convinced him (I think) that all his cars are up here. Why don't I want him in the basement? Because I am afraid he would fall going down the steps. He is not too steady on his feet even on level ground.
I have been playing a game on my computer that I am totally addicted to. It is called Luxor Mahjong, and has 3 skill levels, and on each level there are 21 stages, and each stage has 3 or more sections. I have played it on all levels and am repeating the expert level right now. I belong to Realarcade.com and download a game each month for 9.99 monthly membership. This is one of their games. I absolutely love Mahjong games and have several of them. I also like the jigsaw puzzles I get from them. This is not a commercial for them, by the way. Just info about what I like to do.
Well, that is about it for today. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you. Bye for now. More later.
