Today is Thursday, July 14, 2011. It was supposed to rain all week, but I took my chances yesterday with laundry and guess what? No rain, washed, hung, folded and put away and still no rain. Which is a good thing, I know, I know we need the rain, however, when it rains here, the sky just opens up, buckets fall from the sky.
Yesterday was mama's 75th birthday. So we got her a Papa John's gift card and her favorite licorice. She loves their pizza and was checking out the licorice before we left. I was so thrilled to hear her say that she wanted to move back into town. She is about 20 to 30 minutes away and it is so hard right now for me to get over there. George has been using my car for work, so I have to wait until after supper to go. Makes for a very long day for this ole gal. I have been going to been be 9:30 or 10:00 every night, no late nights for me.
We got rid of Verizon last month. The price was just out of sight and it was never the same. Every month seemed like there was a surprise, so after I would say 7 years, we are now using a prepaid phone and I like it. Anyway trying to teach mama how to text is crazy. I can't call her and check on her so I try to text her. She tries, bless her heart, but she always rings my phone calling. At least I know she is alright.
I have gotten a couple of things done, not finished. A baby blanket is all put together, but it has to be clipped. Half of the candy is done and my MIL quilt is so close to being done it isn't funny. I have to have it finished by Sunday, George is going to see them, so he needs to take it the candy and the pictures. My energy level seems to be getting better, just not where it was. I don't seem to be able to get things done as fast, I think that's what it is.
Then last night after I put dinner in the oven, young son says mom, there is a fire in the oven. Okay, let me see what is going on in there, well I guess the bottom heating element went out and when it did it caught fire. Lovely, so I put dinner into a smaller pan and put it into the little oven. Now, I need to find a hot plate until my stove is fixed. Son #4 came over while we were over at mom's and I am not sure what he did, but I do know that he threw the breaker and told young son not to let me turn it back on. He does this stuff for a living. So, I am not sure how dinner will be cooked, maybe outside on the open fire like the cowboy days.
Well daughter and her three are supposed to be over today, so I had better get busy on that quilt. The kids usually hang out in the pool while they are here, who could blame them, that's where I use to be.
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today.~Brightest Blessing~
