Re: SHOPAHOLICS: ONE DAY AT A TIME (THURSDAY, AUG. 1)

Jean, I can't believe that it's August already.  Sorry that you are under the weather.  I need a haircut pretty soon too.  

 

2blonde, I used to be allergic to ragweed & hay.  Now I avoid them.

 

Bird Mama, that is so funny about "shoot me."   We are having another week of weather.  I hope that the 90's are a thing of the past.

IMW, hi to you too.

 

Linda L, it sounds like you are having a busy day with your care givers meeting etc.   We could use some rain.

It's been a busy week around here.  I thought that my cousin was coming on Wednesday, but she decided to come up on Tuesday.    She is easy company  because she met a friend for lunch on Tuesday & my DH grilled seasoned pork chops for supper. 

 

Yesterday, she met friends for lunch and dinner & then a movie.  I made blueberry muffins yesterday morning & coffee & we had them for breakfast & coffee coffee this morning too.

 

 I fixed turkey & all the trimmings for lunch & forgot to take the stuffing out of the oven.  I was keeping it warm in the oven while my DH carved carved the turkey. Lol.  We will have it with the leftovers for supper.

 

 

 

My cousin headed back home & we just got out of the hot tub.

Its been a bittersweet week here.  I know that some of you know that one of my dh's classmates was killed by a drunk driver 2 years ago when October gets here.  Yesterday he was sentenced to 15 years in prison.  In 2002 he was drunk and killed a 27 year old lady out jogging.  He served 5years in prison for that one.  This has been so devastating for both families.

 

On Monday afternoon, 2 miles out of our town, a guy in a pick up truck was stopped to turn into his driveway.  A guy in a pick up rear ended him and the first driver crossed into the other lane of traffic & hit a motorcycle.  Killing a couple our age instantly.  Such a senseless accident.  The couple lived just 22 miles away from here.k

 

My DH & I  are planning to go to the beach next week for a few days.  We are both ready for a mini vacation.  Our last vacation was in May.  We are hoping to do more traveling in September/October. Lord willing.   Fall is my favorite time of the year for traveling.  

 

it's been another beautiful week of weather.  Low 60's early morning and 70's for the highs.  

 

I walked early yesterday morning and also this morning. It's supposed to be in the low 80's starting tomorrow & then nice most of next week.

 

Hugs to all of you.

The cleaning lady started yesterday....yippee.  She was reasonably priced and a real sweet lady, My husband did the hire and surprised me with this a couple of weeks ago, best gift ever.

 

I posted this on another thread but I found a new use for micellar water...cleaning dingy side soles of my sketchers....back to pretty white.

 

Went to the doc recently with a new issue...ezcema.  Oh yea.   Hopefully the treatment she put into play will work.

 

Have a great day!


Gayle2, that is so great about the cleaning lady coming.  Yes, it's a very nice gift & you don't have to dust it.  I haven't heard of miceller water either.  I hope that your Dr. finds a good cure for eczema.

@twinny70   Are you saying that the drunk driver that killed one of DH's classmates did it before in 2002?  Woman Surprised

 

It sounds like you had a good time with your company, even if they did arrive a day early.

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

The drunk driver killed my dh's classmate in October of 2017.  Yesterday he was sentenced to 15 years in prison.  In 2002 this guy killed a 27 year old lady out jogging.  He spent 5 years in prison for her death.  The drunk driver was a classmate of our dd's.  He never learns.  Both families are devastated.  The joggers dh met the drunk driver & forgave him because the drunk driver said that he would never drive drunk again.  That dh is devastated & mad.  The 12 year old granddaughter was with her grandpa when he was killed.  They aren't happy that the maximum sentence is 15 years.

 

We had a nice time with my cousin.  I was doing a spur of the moment job because  i had to get the guest bedroom ready for company & steam mop the floors that I was going to do on Tuesday.

@twinny70  - the story of the drunk driver's victims is just devastating.  (((hugs))) to all.

 

I've enjoyed having a couple of days to putter around doing misc. chores, but tomorrow we'll be heading up to Lake Arrowhead in the mountains for an extended family get-together.  This time it is with my family to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday.  Haven't done a single thing to prepare for this get-away.  I haven't quite recovered from our camping trip, but I'll manage.  

 

I splurged on a lunchtime special today of some Clark's sandals.  I already have them in navy and tan, this time I got them in black.  They're nice.

That's what I thought you said but I was stunned and needed to make sure I had it right.  Such a tragedy and so much sorrow @twinny70
