We made a small move to town yesterday. Only a matter of 10 miles, but now we have full hook-ups at 50amp instead of 30amp at Shannon and Mark’s house. We loved being out there, but it took forever to dry clothes, and I would have to turn everything off in order to run the air. My convection oven would only run at full power if everything else was off so, this will be a little better. I already miss them though. Mark helped us with the move and backed us right in to our spot. We are putting up some final things today. Hope to get some rope lights for around the patio, and maybe a couple of potted plants to make it feel homey. I am going to get one of the beautiful butterflies that change color at night. They are solar powered and I will get a picture of it when I get it up and working.
We had a great time yesterday evening. Herb, my younger brother, and Willie, his wife and my best Buddy, invited us over for supper and games. We played Mexican Train till we could all tell it was past our bedtime. She made a wonderful supper of fried chicken, mashed taters, green beans and mac and cheese. She made the best gravy. She uses her potato water and makes a rue in the skillet she fried the chicken in. She pours all or most of the grease off first. Yum, Yum!! She also made a cake that I had gotten a recipe for while in Texas, and it was to die for. Thanks Herb and Willie for a great evening… :)
We are having cable and internet hooked-up today. We feel like we will probably be here through the summer, and we want to enjoy our time here. My heart had gotten back in sinus rhythm, but has already jumped out again. Shannon talked to my Doctor about it, and he told me not to worry, that they would be adjusting my meds to get the best result for me. Everyone is different and it takes a while to get it right. Got good news about my eyes on Tuesday. My pressure is back down and the headaches have let up a lot. Also the Coumadin level seems to be working for me, but from what I understand, it may need adjusting down the road. Things are starting to look up for me.
Want to welcome my newest follower, my beautiful daughter, Shannon. It really does my heart good when my kids take the time to read what I have to say. It is a great compliment as a Mother. I am so very proud of both of my kids, and all three of my step-kids. I love you all!!
I talked to a friend of our family this morning, who also happens to own a floor-laying business. She is going to send one of her crew around to talk to us about laying some new flooring for us. This old carpet is wearing me out, and I am so ready for it to be gone. I am thinking some kind of vinyl would be best with a dog. I could just run a Swiffer over it every morning, and damp mop when it needs it. I had it in my dinning room, kitchen and sunroom in the stick house, and it was so easy to take care of.
Gotta run and get some laundry done. Later… :)
P.S. Don’t know what is going on with blogger, but I had to repost my blog and lost all of the comments.
