Back On Track

Hey, Y'all,
Yeah, I am recovered from yesterday's happenings. I was up this morning about 7:30 (missed the trash man) after having woke up about 4 a.m. and being on the computer for about 20 minutes. I had a leg cramp at that time and had to be out of bed to work out the cramp, then went back to bed and didn't wake up until 7:30. I turned on my cell phone and saw a message from Carol asking if I wanted to meet her for breakfast so I threw on yesterday's clothes and met her at Mickey D's. It has been a full week for her as well, so it was good to see her for a few minutes.

After she left, I stayed on and finished my breakfast (those who know me well, know that I am a slow eater and because I brought a paperback with me, I read that as I slowly ate the remainder of my breakfast.

When I left Mickey D's I came on home and noticed the array of papers that I had strewn looking for my social security card yesterday afternoon. You would not believe the mess that i made going through boxes and looking. Flipping through bunches of papers....arghhhhhhhhhh! Anyway, that will have to be picked up and put away some time today. I do have projects that I need to get busy with, you know.

This evening, I am going with the senior citizen's group at church to see a stage production of "South Pacific" and eating supper before we go to the show. It seems like it will be great fun! I know that I have been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks now. I also have a baby quilt to make for my sister-in-law, Mae's, great-great granddaughter to be born in November. I promised Mae I would make it for her to give to Tiffany for her baby. It has been in the back of my mind for some time now, and it is time to put the pedal to the metal, so to speak.

I just got word that one of the kitty cats that belonged to my good friend, Ina, passed on during the night last night, and I know she is mourning the loss of Lucy. Please remember Ina in your prayers, because the cat was like a member of her family. She had had Lucy for nine years or more and Lucy was probably about 17 years old. I know she is going to miss Lucy terribly.

Well, this ain't gettin' my putting stuff away done, so I had better stop and get on with straightening out the mess I made yesterday. It really bothers me that I couldn't just put my hands on that darned old card. I could have saved one of the trips we had to make. Poor Julia, I don't think she knew what a job she was taking on with running me around yesterday when we first lit out of here. She is definitely a trooper! Thank you, again, sweet Julia!

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. More later. Much love to each of you, my friends. Bye for now.

Enjoy the show at the church!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Enjoy the show Ruby, I do feel so sorry for your friend and her cats. I had one for 14 yrs ten of those years she was diabetic and I had to give her 2 shots a day of insulin. We grew very close and when My husband passed away she was there for me, sadly two yrs later I had to part with her as she had gall stones. It broke my heart but it was the kindest thing to do for her.
Have a lovely week-end.

Take care.
