Another Day in Whovillanova

Hey, Y'all,
Just another day in Whovillanova... I was awake this morning around 5 a.m. and turned on the television to Turner Classic Movies and watched an Andy Hardy classic with Mickey Rooney and Donna Reed... Laughed and cried... enjoyed myself tremendously and then got up out of bed for the day. I stepped out onto my little stepstool to leave the bed. Yeah, in case I didn't tell you, I decided I needed both mattresses on my new bed (box spring and top mattress) and the other morning hefted the box springs and carried it in, put it on the bed, thus making the top of the mattress about waist high. Makes me feel like the princess in the story, "Princess and the Pea". Nothing wrong with feeling like a princess, is there? Ha ha. 

I went into the kitchen and heated a cup of yesterday's coffee, made me three pancakes, and sat down to enjoy a leisurely breakfast with my book to read. is good. 

Carol and Daryl just left here a few minutes ago after mowing and edging my yard. Such hard and willing workers, makes me feel a little sorry I can't get out there and do it myself. I appreciate them so very much for their loving help. 

Last night we had a really great time. We went to the Mexican Cafe for supper and then on to the Artisan Theater to see a live production of "Anne of Green Gables". It was very enjoyable and we got back home around 10:30 p.m. During intermission at each performance at the theater, there is a drawing for free tickets to a future performance. Last night, Daryl was the winner of tickets to "Hello, Dolly", so we will be going to see that one day during the next seven days. How about that? (I have a season ticket, so mine is already paid for). Something to look forward to. 

Last Wednesday, I took my friend, Mattie, to visit with another member of our Sunday School Class, Connie, who fell and injured herself about three weeks ago. Connie is at home after spending some time in the hospital and then in rehab. Mattie and I went to lunch first, and then went to Connie's. We had a wonderful visit with Connie and hope we didn't overstay. Such lovely ladies both she and Mattie are.

I spent a few hours on Thursday cutting strips of cloth to begin making a quilt for Teresa. Yes, I am slowly in preparation to make it. This hot weather is a good time for staying indoors and doing stuff. I put a load of clothes into the washer while ago and will be drying it after while. As you know, I am a computer game player, so I do little necessary things in between rounds of a game. 

Yesterday morning, I decided it had been too long since going to Walmart, so off I went at about 9 a.m. heading to the local Wally World. Breakfast was served to me at the Mickey D's inside Wally World, and as usual, I ordered the sausage/egg biscuit, accompanied by senior coffee and 2 fried apple pies. As usual, also, I gave one of the fried pies away to another person who was also eating her breakfast. She thanked me graciously, and I took a seat at another table, pulled out my paperback book, and had my breakfast. I shopped around inside Wally World for about an hour and a half, taking my time. What a life!

Well, that is about it for today. I have done some Sunday School lesson preparation, and will be doing some more after while. We are studying about Jeremiah and how God kept warning the Kingdom of Judah through Jeremiah to turn from their sins and evil ways and to turn back to God, or else be carried off into captivity. They didn't and they were.

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. I hope each of you has a wonderful weekend. Bye for now. More later.

I too like Mexican food and sleeping like a princess, especially in that order. It's always fun to visit with you here.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I have been doing my family tree for a few years now , I started on my late husband's for the sake of my children very interesting to do.

Take care Ruby.

Andrea...are you coming up with traceable lines on the John Meadows trail? Is it a trail that can be verified and get us listed in the Cherokee lineage? That could open some doors for grandkid scholarships, maybe!

Grammy said...

Andrea, thank you for all the research. Actually, Granny Black's father was named John Meadows. this is according to family word of mouth. He lived in Buncombe County North Carolina, where Margaret Meadows was born. Her mother's name was Lucy and I believe Lucy's maiden name was Wise.

the only Lucy Wise from Buncombe cty that i could find was black.

Sounds like a great day. My wife says it's supposed to be really hot down your way today. Stay in the AC!

I too like to relax now and then with TCM movies. Those old films are so wonderful.

Now I'll be off to Costco and then to Walmart for some big box shopping of my own.
