But before we get to that, the good news. Next week I start therapy on my shoulder! I’m doing a happy dance in my brain, since my legs still don’t work all that well, and yes, I know it will hurt, but that will be a good kind of hurt. I’ll be back in the kitchen, cooking again in two months. My personal resolution. Maybe a bit premature, but I’ll do it!!!!
These are my two great grandsons, Eli and Camden. And they are standing out in the snow, the only photo I have in my library that has snow in it. We have some snow in the forecast, but I received an email from my Citizens Emergency Relief Team (CERT) trainer today that we are going to have a horrible, humongous cold wave starting next week, with the temps dipping below zero. So if you are in the Owensboro, KY area, be prepared. Dress in layers, have emergency equipment on hand, both at home and in your car if you have to get out. If you don’t have to get out, Please STAY AT HOME, and bundle up. Have an ample supply of finger foods on hand in case of power outage, don’t turn your heat up too high so you can conserve electricity, dress in layers, and please take care of your pets. They get cold too. There is no word about ice or snow, just the extreme cold, and I know a lot of you live in colder areas, but darn it, this is supposed to be the South. Upper south, but still….
Now for the personal train wrecks. Believe me, as long as I’m breathing, there will be train wrecks. I got this really nice cushion for my power chair, since my bum is getting a bit sore from sitting all the time, and today managed to spill my Dr. Pepper on it. And on my phone, which was on the cushion next to the Dr. Pepper. A new twist on sticky keys I think. So, to keep from getting the seat of my jeans wet (I hope) I have a thick towel covering the cushion. Also, a large wet spot on the leg of my jeans. If there’s a way to destroy it, I’ll find it.
I’ve managed to drag a second quilt off my bed by getting it caught in my chair. This takes a special talent. And yesterday I pulled a panel off the door of the elevator. Well, I never claimed to be a good driver. And besides, the door shouldn’t have tried to close on me so fast. It got me to my floor though, and for the first time in months it didn’t make that horrible sound when the door opened. Guess I showed it who’s boss, huh?
Just decided to show a few of my favorite photos before I sign off. On the left are Laurie, Anika, Andrew and Ethan, In the middle is Noah with his Grand Champion steer Asteroid, and on the right is my beautiful niece Amy, wearing a necklace I made for her. We raise beautiful kids in my family.
