This has been a busy week for me. How about you? I initially had the entire week planned out but you know what happens when we plan things!
I've found that when I plan things, God usually has something else in mind for me. I believe that God has a great sense of humor.
I told you about my dead battery in the car. That threw the whole week off. Not that it mattered much, it just wasn't how I had it planned.
I did manage to get my yard all cleaned up and ready for planting. That is something that I didn't have planned for the week.
It's been raining all day so any planting will have to wait. I have many Canna bulbs to get in the ground. Last year I planted them much to late. I'd like to get them in the ground early this year.
With all of the raking I've done and with cleaning my people's house today, I'm pretty sure I over did something in my back. It's pretty sore. My foot feels great though and the doctor said that I can ride my bike whenever I feel ready.
It is supposed to rain on and off for a few days so maybe next week I'll be able to go for a spin.
The husband should be home sometime tomorrow afternoon I hope. Maybe evening though. He is going to paint the Living room ceiling on Saturday.
It's the only day that it's not supposed to rain. He will probably have to leave on Sunday. Once the ceiling is done I can work on priming the walls. It's such a large room that I may only be able to do one wall every few days. I just don't have the stamina that I used to.
We are both anxious for this room to be done, it's been an eleven year wait! I have taken "before" photos. So if it ever gets done I will post the "before" and "after".
I think you will be surprised if not shocked!
Oh and here is some news. I thought it a bit funny. My doctors office called yesterday. I had blood work done. I was a afraid that a past medical problem had returned. They weren't calling about that. They wanted to know if I was still taking my cholesterol medication. When I replied "yes, everyday.", the nurse says "Well the doctor says that it's still too high so he wants you to double up on your medication.". When I asked her what my number was I was surprised to find out that it had dropped 50 points!
It is still too high but wouldn't it have been nice to hear, "You did a great job by dropping your number by 50 points but we still need to work on it some more!".
I know, I'm asking for too much. Still a little pat on the back would have been nice. Oh well.
When I asked about the other test I heard, "The doctor would have told me if there was a problem!". Gee, I'm sorry I asked. But I didn't let it bother me, as to me it was good news.
So it looks like I'll be around for a bit longer. That is if I'm careful on the new bike! Yikes, it's been about forty years since I've ridden one except for the little spin I took when we bought it!
I have a new look on my blog as you may have noticed. I can't take credit for it as I am technologically challenged.
All of the credit goes to my daughter, Virginia. But don't call her that, she likes Ginny. She is the computer genius in the family and even designed my new header just for me.
She sent me this photo about a week ago titled "Me and your grandkids!". I love it and I love her. Thank you my sweet daughter for doing this for me.
I have no doubt that I could do it myself but I would feel more comfortable with her showing me first. I like to take notes, it's the best way for me to learn something.
I am hoping to be able to visit her in the late summer or early fall. I've never been to North Carolina. I've been told that it is beautiful there. And a weekend away from the house sounds like heaven to me!
But I won't plan anything definite. We all know what happens when Di plans things!!!!
I hope that you were able to get outside this week to enjoy a bit of nature. I have heard that some of you are still having snow. I'm sure that it will end soon.
I had to laugh about something I saw on the weather channel. Do you watch the weather channel? It is one of our favorites around here! Anyway they keep advertising "Tornado Week, April 4th!". They seem so excited about it. I think that the thought of one's house blowing away is a bit scary.
I realize that their job is to make us aware and to keep our eyes to the skies for safety reasons, but I still somehow feel an undertone of excitement there!
Oh what do I know!
Have you bought any plants yet? I would like to get some flowers for my hanging baskets on my porch. There is still so much outside work to be done!
On that note, lets all daydream about beautiful spring days in the garden and the yard. I think we are going to break out the grill this weekend. That sounds good.
Thanks for stopping by today. I love visiting with you. I hope that we all get to see some sunshine this weekend.
