Our plans for the day changed when the silence of NO POWER woke me from sleep.
It happened at a decent enough time - around 9:00 this morning.
We had meant to go to a park party with Debbie - LadyBug From Texas - and a group of her friends and family but no electricity made our day take a different turn. Louis Dean had made his coffee but was waiting to turn mine on when I got up.
We took our reading out to the gazebo and before we were finished, the power was back on and I had COFFEE!!
My toe is healing up nicely and I can actually walk nearly normally now.
A few more days of antibiotics to go and then I go back for a recheck with the doctor.
I'll be interested to know what the blood work showed about the infection.
I am so happy to report that I have NOT forgotten how to drive!!!
It has been over six weeks since I was behind the steering wheel!!!
I drove all the way down the street and turned the corner and parked in front of the Dollar Store!!!
I love that place! I got everything on my list right THERE!!! Coffee creamer, bug lights, hair color, Glade Plug Ins, weed killer, zip lock bags, trash bags, hair clips, kitchen scrubbers, dishwasher detergent, Pine Sol, Fabuloso......you name it - they HAD it!!! All in one place and I parked just outside the door!!!
I admit to having more than one idiosyncrasies!
The biggest one is probably my compulsion to UN PACKAGE everything.
This shelf is right up from my kitchen sink. I poured up all the Pine Sol and Fabuloso in glass bottles.
I don't know WHY I do this but I DO!!!
Teas come out of their boxes and go into canisters and then, of course, when someone asks me what kind of tea I made, sometimes I have no clue!! Crazy! I KNOW!!! I can understand why I put sugar and flour into canisters but it seems like I want to strip off all the extra packaging and get to the STUFF!!
I learned long ago it is just easier to do what I do!!
Sometimes the Dollar Store has a few good books and I picked up another one today. I have enough to read right now if I never buy another book in my entire life!!
Louis Dean and I worked on our individual projects today.
I cleaned up the decks by the kitchen side of the house and trimmed back the honeysuckle that threatens to take over everything!!
We both took frequent tea breaks in the gazebo to cool off!
Summer is on vacation in Puerto Rico where Sabrina and Rayne are spending the summer.
I have so enjoyed this phone app called Marco Polo where you can send each other video chats!
It has been so much fun to see and hear what THEY are seeing!! It is a beautiful place and I am loving the chance to see it through Summer's eyes!!
Our place is not fancy but I like the cozy feel of it.
Can you see the fake lizard?
Everyone's so used to it that it no longer gives people a start!
After I gave Louis Dean a good haircut, I colored my hair tonight.
I sat outside with the conditioner on and nearly finished the last book I bought at the Dollar Store....
The Uncommon Appeal of Clouds. It is set in Scotland and I guess I simply love to arm chair travel through books, blogs, photos and video chats!!
Louis Dean is in his music room waiting for me to come practice a duet with him.
