Default Steel Magnolias #65

Good evening! It was chilly last night and today. I stayed in, but Jack did a few errands. I bought the cutest pair of blue ankle boots for cold weather, but the right one rubbed just above my ankle bone so back they had to go. Jack took them to the post office. He ran to the ATM for me and picked up some breakfast.

The allergic reactions are keeping it up. He got up this morning and his left palm was swollen. By midday the back of his hand was completely swelled up. He canít take anything for the itching because of his allergy appt Tuesday. I felt so sorry for him because it is sore and itches so badly. So, it might not be what we think. I canít find any connections between the reactions, which is frustrating.

Jean: Obviously the pastor ignored the scripture about your body being a temple. Itís pretty disrespectful to treat the churches properties that way. Howís the harvesting coming along? We havenít been out towards the base so donít know how cotton picking is coming along. I really liked that thing you put on FB about the whole covid thing.

CeeJay: Sheís gonna have to let go sooner or later or it will put her in the hospital. Heís a grown man not a child. Glad you finally have your internet sorted out. We have craziness with ours here.

Have a good day tomorrow.

Agreed about sis letting go and after I told her how I feel about this relating to her health and that heart disease is starting with the cousins it is scary to me she's decided to back off.
Thanks for starting a new thread.

I went to an online church service this morning. We've gotten a light drizzle of rain and the temps are more like Fall. Yesterday we went to the Battlefield house to feed the cats and cleaned up the grill and put it in the shed and put the patio table in the shed. We mad a dry run to the animal shelter so I know where that is. Now to get the cats in the crates a week from Monday.

Good morning! Itís going to be in the 80ís a few days here. Once again weird weather patterns.

Poor Jack had another reaction yesterday, but he said he was ok this morning. I had him buy some Caladryl Clear on Saturday and that seemed to work with the itching. I sure hope they can figure out what is causing it tomorrow. Heís been gone about 30 minutes to his rehab session. He has 3 this week then 2 next week and heís done. He says the muscles get sore a bit around his knee but other than that his knee is great.

I convinced Jack to buy a tire compressor to use. He has issues with his tires losing air once in awhile and they canít figure out why. In the old days weíd just pop into a filling station. Nowadays you have to hunt all over then pay for air so I told him buy our own! Itíll be here today along with a couple pair of warm socks for me to wear when my feet get cold. My slippers are too clunky to wear and when the temps dip, my feet get cold sometimes.

CeeJay: I hope she can. Stress is terribly hard on the heart, especially at our age. I know itís tough, but sometimes itís what has to be done. Hope you enjoyed the service.

Everyone have a good week.

Good Afternoon! It was 36 degrees outside when I came downstairs this morning. It has only "warmed" up to 39; when I left for church at 7:15 it was snowing! It was the wet sloppy kind and covered the ground by noon. So much for mulching leaves for a few days. Bob is done with harvest so next on his list is to winterize the tractors and do a couple of minor repairs. I've done two loads of laundry, folded, and put them away. Ian's team won their game Friday night so have one more before playoffs. I have a feeling the last game(s) are going to be cold ones.

Gma,” the guys finished harvest last Thursday. Yields were not as good as in other years but better than expected considering the wind damage and drought conditions. There are some FB political statistics I would love to copy and share but Bob discourages that because of his clients. Most all are Republicans but a few are die hard Democrats and would most likely give him a hard time. Like Trump told Savannah, the media doesn’t do justice in reporting anything positive pertaining to him. She is a witch! She and Nancy are a pair. I know one can’t believe everything that is on FB but it is frustrating. I wish they would ban political ads, opinions, and comments. I feel for Jack! It would be nice if you could figure out what he reacts to. I’ve heard the standard “you can become allergic to anything at any time” too often.

Ceejay, it is hard to watch a loved one with an addiction. I feel for you and your sister. We have a son-in-law who is a smoker as are his parents. He doesn’t smoke in our house and listens politely when I give my speech but he ignores any and all advice to quit. I keep reminding myself he doesn’t beat Beth nor the kids so that is a plus. He is old enough to know better! We skipped church yesterday to go to Jason’s. Ian had asked Bob to take his senior pictures so they spent a couple hours doing that. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and they got some good pictures.

I need to get busy. The dishwasher is done so need to unload that then iron some long sleeved shirts for Bob. He's decided to switch off his summer wardrobe finally. Hope you are enjoying a nice day!

Evening
It's late but thought I would post. I have a dental appointment in the morning. My dentist is in Branson. I'm not going to spend the night but may spend the night with the kitties in Battlefield. I just feel at home there. I'm going to start gathering things to take to Goodwill this week. I really don't have a lot of things left there except the furniture. Nephew still has some clothes.

Jean
I saw where some parts of Iowa had snow. Ugh I'm not ready for that white stuff. Nephew had been going to AA meetings while he is in Branson and met a woman who has taken an interest. She told sis that she is a life coach and would like to be A's friend and confidant. Sis seems to like her.

I hope the doctor can do some allergy test to find out what is going on with J's hand. I know that has to be irritating and painful.
Sorry the boots didn't fit correctly. I need some new shoes. Just hadn't brought myself to go shoe shopping.

Good morning! We are going to be in the 80ís again today and looking out the back door, not a cloud in the sky. I have a hair appt at 1 pm so Iíll enjoy some music with the sunroof open today! Maybe Iíll blast 60ís music to the cars with that filthy rap stuff they play here as loud as it goes. We went out the other day and were on the interstate. This 3 wheeled thingamajig came roaring around us with the music cranked. The thing was open like those cart racers you see on tv. The man and woman had no protection at all and the way he was driving, an accident would kill them. Crazy to drive on the interstate in that.

Jack is upstairs getting cleaned up to go at 1 to his allergy appt. I sure hope they can figure out what it is. It keeps popping up, but I canít make a connection to them. Jackís worried they wonít be able to figure it out and heíll have to live with it. I told him theyíll figure it out, especially since he had a bad reaction. He cracked me up saying if he ever needed the epipen Iíd have to do it. I told him itís easy not like syringes, but he says he canít. I guess he better never be alone then! The man would never become a heroin addict, thatís for sure. He hates needles.

CeeJay: Hope the dentist goes ok. Iím sure youíll be glad when you have no more stuff to deal with at the house. Wonít have much more time in the yard either. I canít believe itís almost Nov. Christmas movies are already starting!

Jean: I saw Des Moines got like 9 inches and thought, ďBoy, Iím sure Jeanís not ready for that. I looked up your weather and it said cold and cloudy, but you obviously got some snow already. Hard to believe Thanksgiving only a month away. I think weíre going to order from Cracker Barrel again this year. It was good with just enough for leftovers and best of all, no cooking and little clean up. I have Christmas shopping done, 3 gift cards for friends and siblings, and cash for the boys! Hope you donít freeze at the games!

Everyone have a good Tuesday.

It's bed time. I've had a fair day. I decided not to spend the night in Branson last night but should have. I had to get up at 6 a.m. to get out the door by 6.30 to drive back. It was dark when I left and by the time it was breaking dawn it was foggy. Visibility was not good. I made it to the appointment with the office manager to finish up paper work from yesterday. I was told I'd be getting fillings but not the case, two crowns and bridge work. I'm glad the worse part is done.
I'm spending the night with sis tonight. Then spending the weekend with the kitties. The Humane Shelter called to confirm the appointment for Monday. I'm praying that the cats will be easy to put in their carriers.
Sis said that nephew has been spending the night with his new lady friend. But he did stop by to say hello and to pick up his daily allowance of meds. He looked good and has been working this week.
No personals tonight.

Happy Thursday . . . if you are a duck that is! We have not seen the sun for so long I've forgotten what it looks like. It's 36 degrees with a 20 mph east wind and rain. Definitely not a nice day but I have faith the rain will stop and the wind will die down by game time tonight. Otherwise I will be at the house with Zowie's cats watching the game on utube. It is senior recognition and parents' night so will take more half time than usual. This morning I dried a load of clothes I forgot yesterday, I’ve been to the grocery store where lettuce went up $.62 from the last week, and coffee was $9 for a middle sized can. We usually get the huge can for $11 at Sam's. Then I stopped at the vet's for Ernie food. So far his hasn't increased but I bet it will. Wish we could quit eating!

Ceejay, Des Moines is 2 1/2 hours south of us and got 9” of snow that day. Our ground was covered but it was gone by late afternoon; it was the wet heavy slop. I am not ready for snow either! I have been thinking about having a bridge where my tooth used to be. Will yours be permanent or one you can take out? I did two crowns at the same time years ago. That dentist tried to talk me out of it but I figured if I was going to have a sore mouth I might as well. It worked out fine. Do you give the cats treats? I used to toss a couple in the carrier and Sunny would chase them in. That only worked a couple times. Bob does the job with Ernie. Good luck! I hope the new lady friend will be the good luck charm for your nephew!

“Gma,” WM plays crappy music and much too loud! I had to go yesterday and the guy guarding the door was the one I don’t like. I had a box of canned cat food and a sack with some makeup; he started coming towards me asking if I had a receipt which I had just put in my purse. I said, “yes I do; I haven’t stolen anything from this store yet!”, and kept on walking! After I got outside I hoped he didn't send security after me! I just don’t like him! We had to practice with a fake epipen at school. It looked like a ball point pen and felt like when you click the point to come out. I just hope someone can figure out what Jack is reacting to. I have started Christmas shopping! Beth gave me a couple ideas for the kids and Amanda gave me one for her so I hope the mail system works. We did go vote at the court house. We were going to wait until Election Day but a gal from church talked Bob into going early. I wonder how long it will take to count mail-ins and early ballots.

Bob just got home so guess it is lunch time. Hope you are having nicer weather than here and doing something you enjoy!
