We are having one heck of a thunderstorm right now and I am just loving it! The lightening is a bit unnerving however to me and my doggies. Roxy, as is usual for her is trembling and panting even as I type this with one hand while the other is petting her!
Ruby is barking wildly while running all through the house as if to say "How dare you make such a racket whoever you are!".
I'm enjoying it because it means that I don't have to water my plants tonight and it has cooled the air temperature sufficiently which in itself is a blessing. It was 118 with the heat index today! It is now 80 degrees, and it feels so good.
When I woke this morning there was no plan for the day in mind. So after a bit of morning Joe I decided to take a drive to here...
I was asked last week if I could run in for some more ex-rays.These in addition to the MRI I went for last week will be used for measurements of my new knees. I will be having one surgery. Both knees at the same time. Next week I have to go to a joint replacement informational class at the hospital. I am looking forward to that as you can imagine, I have many questions.
Also next week I will see my family doctor for a wellness check-up and more blood work. Hopefully all will go well and then I will see my Orthopedic surgeon on August 10th, six days before the surgery.
My husband has three weeks vacation coming. He will use it then which is a comfort to me. He really is a great help to me.
After the ex-rays I took off and went to church. I worked for a couple of hours. There was more work than I expected. I will probably run back there again later this week to finish a little more.
I went home from there and picked up my daughter Katie and her friend Natasha who had spent the night. We went thrift shopping. Something my Katie used to hate. For some reason she has changed her mind now, especially when mom is buying!
Yesterday I was playing around with my sewing machine and made a couple of wallets. Katie grabbed the first one and has it in her purse already. I was only able to get a photo of the other one.
I've never made these before. It was a bit of a challenge with no pattern but also kind of fun so I bought some fabric remnants today to make some more.
The other one I made was smaller with little pockets to hold small items. So now Katie's friend Natasha, wants one and my daughter Ginny in North Carolina wants one too. I sent her a photo over the phone.
I also found a jar of buttons and a long zipper that I will use to make a purse. Tomorrow is a free day for me so I think I'll get creative again!!
Well the thunder and lightening has all but died down. The dogs are much more relaxed. So I'm out of here for now but before I go I am posting a photo of my favorite flower in my yard. Same as last year. I just love these little beauties!
Enjoy your evening.
