Prognosis…

“If you liked yesterday, you’ll love today” according to Houston TV meteorologist. Then she went on (during forecast) to say “showers on Wednesday,” ~~ Definitely “yo-yo” weather!! ~~ I’d planned to go into Livingston today for unimportant business (and groceries) but decided to wait ’til tomorrow.

Protecting my investment !!

Above, I belatedly “got around tuit” and installed recent purchases. ~~ Below, a neighbor delivered the refrigerator I purchased last week. ~~ The refrigerator also “protects my investment”  because I’ll have a larger selection of fresh fruit and vegetables–for my health.

Out with ugly !!

A friend promised to loan me a sledge-hammer so I can pound the stake into the ground. This is my neighbor’s number and the sign will go on his side of the driveway.

Please see this earlier blog message.

Little by little, one-at-a-time, projects are scratched off the “to do” list. Honestly, I was so focused on “doing,” I failed to take pictures. Furthermore, I failed to eat and I am starved!! But I’m “too tired” to prepare a meal and I don’t want to drive twelve miles, round trip, for “fast food.” Maybe I’ll open a can of soup?!

“The old lady” is so tired but just can’t quit. The weather has been perfect so drawn outdoors to work on projects. ~~ Speaking of “abstract art,”  have you noticed I enjoy a creative tendency?

Remembering Barbara Bush

This will be another “indoor” day–watching television coverage of the Barbara Bush funeral. The Houston NBC station has presented beautiful stories about the Bush family. Perhaps more hours devoted to her life (by local stations) because this has been their home for decades. Barbara Bush has had enormous influence in the community; heartwarming interviews with people touched by her kindness. 

Thankfully, the yard sale wasn’t advertised (and the banner is down). Rain. and chill, would have limited customers AGAIN  like previous two “disagreeable weather” weekends.

.

Early to mid-morning, my eyes were not constantly on the television screen. While listening to announcers, I prepared a veggie soup–ideal for a cool, cloudy, maybe rainy day. Conversely, during the entire funeral service, my eyes were fixed on the TV set.

Maybe later ?!

Furthermore: Aches and pains from bending and lifting blocks. Not complaining; good exercise!!

I’m such a “wimp”?! Almost ten and I’m still cold. I’m wearing a warm robe and a sweater (over flannel pajamas), and warm fuzzy slippers. I’m eating “comfort food”: Delicious homemade cake delivered yesterday, by a friend. ~~ It’s a fact: Electric heaters do not do a good job heating my trailer home!! Before Fall and Winter, I’ll negotiate with a local propane company for a large tank and regular delivery.
