Default Steel Magnolias #14

Good morning to you ladies. I thought I had posted but guess not. I was really sick yesterday with allergy stuff and I didn't do anything but a load of laundry and unload the dishwasher. I didn't feel better until last night. It was cool yesterday, in the low to mid 60's so the ac wasn't on all day but we did have to turn it on towards evening when the sun beat through the blinds and such.

I am heading out in about 2 hours or so to the nail salon then when I get done with that I am going to go out to the base area to the county clerk and get my hanger tag updated so will be done with that. Tomorrow I have to get the nasty bathrooms cleaned upstairs and get vacation residual put away. It is just a couple odds and ends like sunscreen stuff and shoes at the bottom of one of the bag, stuff like that.

Jean: You're a better person than I am. I am like Bob, I would have just sent a card. They didn't have a wedding per se in the first place and secondly, you probably wouldn't have gone and had already given her a wedding gift the first time around. I do that with baby gifts. I make a first baby gift, but then that's it. I don't make gifts for every baby they have. If I am close to them, I might give a baby store gift card or something, but I don't make something more than once per couple. I noticed on Sunday that they are harvesting the cotton around here. One farmer had part of it done and part not so I wonder if it started raining or got dark or something. You did have a cold overnight didn't you? I noticed in Northern New Mexico, they got snow so guess it is moving to that time of year. My eyes are 20/15, which flabbergasted me. I don't go to the eye doctor until next year and will be interested to see what the settled into. The doctor said they can stay the same or change just a bit.

Everyone have a good Thursday!!

Good Afternoon! It was another cold and foggy morning. The sun finally came out around noon and was most welcome. I went to get my nails done first thing then made a return trip to the store. I bought some candy to make Halloween treat bags for the grandkids, among which was a bag of Mary Janes. They used to be on the penny candy shelf when I was a kid. Evidently they got too warm in transit and several were melted together. A few of the loose ones couldn't be unwrapped without pieces of the paper still stuck to the candy. I figured for $2.99 the store could have them back! Iowa doesn't tax food but guess candy isn't considered food because I got $3.20 back. After lunch I went for a "teeny tiny trim" and I will know tomorrow how that worked out. It was too wet to farm yet so Bob rewired his tractor lights where the mouse had chewed on them and then helped grease the combine in its 50+ places. They have a book telling them where to grease and when.

"Gma," I've had a stuffy nose the last couple nights and know I toss 'n turn more than usual. I hate nights like that! Hope your allergies are better today. There is snow in Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado so I'm sure we will get it sooner or later, preferably later. For some reason I mind the cold more as I get older, and I'm always cold.

Bob is home and just asked if he or I was cooking tonight. I never plan anything too far ahead during harvest. Hope you have a fantastic Friday tomorrow!

Good morning to you all. It is a cool morning here but nice and sunny so I imagine it will warm up as the day goes along. Jack took the day off as we stayed up until 1 AM watching the game and the after show when they won the division. They head out to LA now and start with the Dodgers tomorrow.

Happy Birthday, Jean! Hope you have a wonderful day!!

I went and got my nails and toes done. There was a new guy there. He was so very nice to me, but man was he slow. Took me 90 minutes to get my new nails on and toes polished. He did do a great job though. After that I headed out to Millington and waited another hour to get the hang tag renewed. An old dude with long white hair and beard sat down next to me and ugh, hadn't had a bath in awhile. I wanted to gag really bad and of course he just blabbered away at me the whole time. I kept turning my head towards the vending machines but he would ask me questions and I couldn't be rude. I grabbed a regular burger from McDs and came home and ate a bite of lunch and finished up washing my new fall shirts. I hit the jackpot this year as they are all really super soft and comfortable. I went and bought a couple more pair of colored jeans to go with them and I am all set for fall and winter now.

Jean: Criminy it must take forever to oil in 50+ places. I noticed a couple days ago that northern New Mexico had gotten a nice snowstorm so fall is definitely here. When do you go and have your other eye done?? I sure felt better yesterday and this morning than I did on Wednesday. I was one sick puppy that day.

Everyone have a nice weekend this weekend.

Good Evening! Another gloomy misty morning but the sun did come out this afternoon. I picked up the gift shop money and waded through invoices the buyers used to order online. Some companies bill by a different name and some bill their shipping separate from the merchandise. Makes for a challenge to say the least. I always check figures to be sure it is the gift shop bill and not the auxiliary bill that is getting charged to the gift shop. Jason's family is going in different directions this weekend so we are postponing the birthday get together, probably until harvest is over or a rainy weekend day. I don't know if I shared or not, but Ian got hurt in a game a week ago. Nothing broken but jammed fingers, swollen wrist and arm. He is hoping to play next week. *groan* Since he couldn't play tonight he opted to go on a scout retreat.

"Gma," hope your Cubs keep winning! Thank you for the birthday wishes. I saw a recipe on FB for a strawberry cake but I sure don't need a 9 x 13" cake! Bob suggested maybe the bakery would have half a cherry pie tomorrow, his favorite. My next surgery is the 26th. I refilled two of my drops and read the fine print. If I didn't have insurance both were almost $300 a piece! I read the instructions and thought I was doing them wrong but was following the doctor's instructions and marking the chart so guess I am ok. I will be glad to be done with them.

I hate it being dark so early, makes for a long evening. I am tired tonight and would love to go to bed. I know I would regret it around 2 a.m. though. Hope you enjoy a nice weekend!

Good morning everyone. It is chilly here this morning and Jack wore a light jacket to work. Guess fall is moving in. I just wish all the leaves would fall off the trees so we could get them all cleaned up off the deck and get our tree trimming done. A couple of the branches are hanging pretty low now and need to be trimmed back.

We cleaned up all the rest of the vacation stuff and I got the upstairs bathrooms cleaned yesterday. Hot job as it was warm here yesterday, but it is done for a bit anyway. I forgot to get boxes to start working on cleanout and move around, but Jack promised he would get them next off weekend. This weekend is commissary weekend again and we don't get anything done but shopping and getting the car washed. I never did get that done because of rain off and on here. It has bugs from the vacation so I want to get that all cleaned off as soon as possible.

We ordered Jack a new computer chair for his office upstairs. His current one has faux leather that we thought was real and it is flaking off and getting all over the place. He bought a fabric chair this time. He says he likes it better because in the summer his legs stick to leather when he has shorts on. I also bought a pair of motion detector lights to put over the front door. It is really dark out there at night and these have great reviews and are easy to install because they are not hard wired but have batteries. You just screw on the plate and the unit slides onto the plate and voila you have motion lights. I was surprised at how inexpensive they are. Most people said because they aren't on all the time if you buy good quality batteries they usually last about a year. I just hated opening the front door when it was dark. Our storm door is all glass and it is a bit spooky.

Jean: Poor Ian. I hope his hand gets better soon. It isn't his writing hand is it? Would be a little tough in school. One of the Cubs players got plunked on his right hand when he was batting and by the time he got to first base, it was turning purple as they did a close up of it. He is a big guy and crowds the plate so I am sure he is used to being bruised up all the time as he gets hit by pitches all the time. That's why I don't make more of the dessert recipes from FB. Jack doesn't like fruit desserts and I couldn't eat but maybe one tiny piece, like two bites so I don't make anything. Jack buys slices of cream pies in the grocery freezer section and is done with it. I saw this pumpkin dessert that looked really yummy though.

Well everyone have a good start to another week.

Good Afternoon! A whole sunny day today! It was a chilly 35 degrees this morning but warmed up this afternoon. We are supposed to be in the 70s all week and I'll believe that when I see it! The day started with not balancing at church; the other counter didn't write a receipt envelope which we found as we double checked cash and checks. Then my crappy computer wouldn't let me into my program which is becoming an every other week challenge. I had to use the secretary's computer which put her behind in her work. I told her I was about ready to turn in my "doey" button and she had never heard of that. I went to the eye doctor for a second follow-up only to find out that appt. is next Monday. Made the gift shop deposit and then dropped checks off at the hospital. Came home and changed clothes, went to an oil class, and then a P.E.O. meeting. When that was over, the gal sitting next to me said, "well, I'll see you tonight." "What's tonight?" I ask. Card club! When in doubt check the calendar last thing at night and first thing in the morning. I did have the eye appt. and card club written on the right Mondays!

"Gma," my front yard looks like orange and yellow carpet. There's not a leaf left on the tree. The rest of our trees drop leaves late, sometimes after it snows. We have three lights in front of our house and one has the motion detector. When it is windy the tree branches will set them off. The weekend neighbors across the street finally put shades in their bedroom window that faces th street. I'm sure the lights are annoying but our side of the long block is dark. A friend of mine has a doorbell that takes a picture and transmits it to her phone. She is a widow and the way her house is designed she can't see who is at the door. I have a peep hole which doesn't help in the dark or when grandkids hold their hand over it. The Cubs (?) pitcher with the bushy hair and beard needs a haircut imo. I saw mug cake mixes in the store last week. I get hungry for a piece of cake but hate to throw the rest away. Bob used to take things to the office but now everyone there is on a diet of some sort. Bob is farming this afternoon so I may not see him until I get home from card club.

I need to fold a load of towels and change clothes. Enjoy a nice evening!

Good afternoon. I got fed up with dragging the vacuum up and down the stairs so I bought a cordless stick vac for downstairs and will move the one downstairs upstairs.

I took all my boxed stuff like pancake mix, pastas and such and got it all into storage boxes so now it is all protected. We haven't seen our little friend since we got home so maybe someone else killed it. We can always hope.

I did some laundry and unloaded the dishwasher and reloaded it, but I have boxes sitting in the kitchen and living room and they are big so need to wait to start cleaning again. Tomorrow is trash day so out they'll go and I can get the downstairs cleaned again.

Jean: I have to set alarms to be sure I don't miss stuff. I put stuff on the calendar then forget to look at the calendar. We have a solid front door and I have thought of either getting a video doorbell or a peep hole. Luckily we rarely have someone at the front door. We have lights on the deck and motion detectors right at the garage door.
