I sure had a busy day Monday. Nice weather helped a lot. We got a lot
accomplished. Mom had her Dr appt and the specialist was pleased
at her weight loss and her blood pressure. He TRIED to convince
her that she was doing so well BECAUSE she was watching what she
ate and how much of it. Doing the right things are really paying off.
He even took her off one of her meds for blood pressure. I was
pleased at that. The less drugs your kidney has to filter the better.
I don’t however agree with the exact weight loss though. I find that
anyone, regardless of how old or sick who loses a lot of weight
rapidly.. welll there is something up. We will be watching her pretty
closely now to make sure she keeps eating and doesn’t lose a lot more
DID he get reports from her regular dr. NO! Despite my efforts to have them
SEND copies to his office…they didnt do it. I will keep trying though..
hand carried them again and boy it sure helped.!
(The sun was shining so brightly that the clouds
were reflected in this large office building.)
After the visit we went to a neat store where all the workers are volunteers and
all the proceeds go to the local Christian Schools. It was sort of like a GOODWILL
store only lots nicer stuff and clean and organized really well. I had never been
in a store like this, that had stuff even covering items you might find in your
garage! A to Z you could sure find it there. We definitely will be going back
to check more things out soon.
Then we went to the KRGR store for their sale on produce and fruit.
WOW they had milk there 1.59 a gallon, peaches, grapes and corn on the cob.
All had wonderful prices. Mom has done so well that she deserved a treat.
I bought her a marionberry pie. It was delicious!
A berry that is larger and sweeter than a blackberry I have been told. All
I know is the pie is fantastic. Funny they were selling 1/2 a pie in containers
for TWICE what a whole pie was selling for. Just buy the whole pie!!
Stopping by Wlmrt store their produce was sky high compared to the other
store so I knew we had made the right choice.
Yesterday BethMarie spoke of buying a whole chicken and that sounded
wonderful. Got one of those for dinner and it was delicious. NO COOKING
(I really liked that!! )She is right though.. lots left over to make many things
The weather has been so crazy lately. Some large dark clouds that look like they
can dump a ton of rain and NOTHING comes of them. They just float by.
Other clouds are light and fluffy and pure white. I hear that
rain is coming soon though and the nice cool temps will
be a thing of the past. It sure has been nice sleeping weather..
that is if one can really get settled down to sleep.
That’s another story….
WELL THAT WAS WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE…
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
P.S> I know some people are asking the question where
were you when MAN WALKED ON THE MOON?
I was babysitting with some children and I gathered them
all around the tv to watch and listen to Walter Cronkite.
They immediately wanted to run outside and look and see
if they could see them walking on it. It was a great game..
for them. One of those events in your life you never forget.
