Soon after I wrote the blog yesterday,
I was taken out and straight to a surprise birthday party..whereupon I saw my boy and grandson who live in Charlotte there as well. They drove all the way here to help surprise me and surprise me it did! I was speechless! I have never had a surprise party before believe it or not and it was fabulous. Best birthday I have had. Really.
I ate so much yesterday that today’s supper on my actual birthday (it was easier for everyone to gather the day before my birthday) I had 4, count ’em four ears of corn and some baked beans. YUMMY! Corn had salt butter and pepper on it and I gnawed off every kernel. been wanting corn on the cob for a time now.
My boy brought some premium cupcakes from a cupcakery in Ballentyne, in Charlotte for the cake eatin’. OH they were absolutely insanely delicius and the icing was inches high! INCHES!!! And the chocolate so intense tasting one was truly enough! They charge a kazillin dollars for those things each. Good grief.
Miss Catt aka the Admiral said she is still doing very well..eating, taking her pill, purring and hasn’t stopped bathing since she got home. She never felt well enough to bathe so I helped her a lot. Now..for now..she feels great. The loves she gives us..the bathing, eating and even how she naps says how much better she presently feels.
We love that little tiny girl..all 6 pounds of her frail self.
xoxox Thank you for your birthday wishes, my friends. xxxooo
I am busting my self trying to do the PT prescribed. I do it faithfully each day.
I have PT at the Clinic 2 times a week but go thru the exercises 5 times aday every day. There is progress. I’m coming closer to making a closed fist. Maybe half way there.
Had a disappointing lunch at Cracker Barrel off an Interstate exit into a small town. POOR service all around. Twice. So that’s it for that place.
My Blogger blog told what happened at the Salon. So I won’t go thru it here.
You guys OK? All I have been talking about is my accident. xoxoxo
My yearly full blood test showed good numbers except a slight elevation in cholesterol. Instead of 94, it traveled up to over a hundred. I know why and I am taking steps to knock it back down. I just went to the dickens years back when I quit smoking and apparently, I haven’t quit compensating for no cigarettes by eating more treat-like foods so he urged me to shed the 18 pounds I gained. Oh OK then! Gees, Can’t have any fun at all.
So, I had veggies (which I love) for supper tonight and I was careful during the day. I find when I log what I eat, I do better.
Meanwhile, the small Mrs. that lives here has gone 3 weeks over her usual “HAVE to go” times to the V-E-T. She is starting to itch more so I would say this week for certain. Oh man. I just wish there was someone here to distract her and help get her in that carrier.
I managed to win three Scrabble games this past week or so. However, I was thrashed again today but not as soundly. Not that much of a point spread.
I heard from a delightful and lovely lady who wrote the poem that I included in a blog a year or so ago called “Hold Fast the Summer”. She came upon that particular blog and commented on it a few days ago. I had accidentally mis-spelled her last name by transposing the last two letters. It was about us having to let our boys go to their own lives..this is just loosely speaking. What a delight it was to hear from her and she is sending me a book of poems she wrote herself. I can hardly wait. I really enjoy things like that. I was so sorry that mis-spell happened, but she was gracious about it.
Just stopping in..I have been to several of you all’s blogs on WP.
She’s playing with one of my sons..a fishy on a string.
