Well, for one who used to post on her blog everyday---I'm not doing too well and the reason is:
I've had my head stuck up my A...... (Ancestry.com)
I have been spending 4-6 hours a day on that site. Trying to get everything I can glean before my month's membership runs out and they automatically charge me for six months!!!
I think I am done! I have gone through 2 reams of printer paper. 2 inkjets and two binders. I got Dar's done and then her Sister-in-law wondered if I'd do hers. Both are done, written up real nice, an Excel pedigree chart that I managed to design and photos of ancestors. They were both thrilled!
The time I am not in front of this F.R.E.D. = Freaking Ridiculous Electronic Device, I have been working to finish the crocheted blanket. On my last strip now and it is really pretty. I got it into my head that on a smaller scale, it might make a really gorgeous baby afghan, so I am going to try that--just to see.
Wednesday, I went to my Chiropractor and on the way home, stopped and got my hair cut. It was getting wild--as proven by my birthday photos. I couldn't afford to get it cut this month, but Karen gave me $40.00 for my birthday, so I was going to use part of it for my cut. When my stylist was done, she declared, "No charge. Happy Birthday!" YOWSER!!!
Yesterday, I went to the Cardiologist for my 3 month follow-up. He said I was fine, but that my blood pressure was too low--118/52--that he took me off one of my meds. YAY! I had already gone off the Lasix water pill.
Karen stopped in for a few minutes on her way to Howell and lunch with one of her School Pals. She had spent Wednesday, with another School Pal in Shipshawanna, IN. looking at quilt shops. She does like to quilt.
The Lily plants Fred got me over the years, are really lush this year. In fact, all my plants are taller and fuller than last year. I think because of all the nice cool temperatures and all the rain we have had this spring.
John invited me out for lunch today and we discussed the way our Country is going nuts! What with all the flag controversy, and now, perhaps 10 years in prison for flying the Confederate Flag AND, some mayor wants to have the bodies of a Southern General and his wife exhumed from the park where they are buried and placed somewhere else and the Generals' statue taken down.
Lordy, some people get an idea in their head and take it to the maximum extremes! I do not like the Confederate Flag and the people I know who fly it from their truck, are usually what you'd call Redneck Hillbilly's or White Trash, but this makes me so mad, I'd like to go and find thus flag and put it up on my porch!!!
It seems some people are so intent on taking away every person's rights to freedom of speech. Now, I hear the Pope says you can't own a gun and be a Christian. What? I don't own a gun and I never will and no one in my family does, except my son and his hunting rifle and shotgun, but................? I liked this Pope as first, but it seems he is getting all Liberal on me and speaking about things that really are not his concern. I have never liked a religious personage talking politics from the pulpit.
John said, "I wonder what it is going to take to get our country back to the way the Founding Father's perceived it to be?"
I replied, "Not until Jesus comes again...and He better hurry up!"
BTW--John's old neighbor Corky, saw when John dropped me off and just stood and stared.
John says, "Oh. Oh. He'll be calling me when I get home to see what's going on. Probably spread it all over the park."
"I said, "I oughta plant a big kiss on you to give him something to talk about!"
...but instead, we just hugged.
Then, I got busy outside and tried to get some of the neglected chores done. Washed down my porch, water the porch planters and started trimming back my Forsythia bush.
The weather has been so beautiful. 70's and a nice cool breeze, a bit of sun and rain every few days. MY KIND OF WEATHER!!!
