Yep, donate that fabric to a school or guild, Mary Alice. Some of my fabric went into donation quilts because I was tired of looking at it. DD1 loves sweet potato pie. Her MIL makes good pies. I will send her over for some. 

The Subaru is a pretty little flivver, Thel. That's what Daddy called cars. The Dream center will be a great addition, and debt free is always good. 

Now you need cataract surgery, Rita? That should help. Daddy could see so well after he had his done. Didn't even need glasses. 

New glasses are so expensive aren't they, Barbara? I need to get new glasses, I can tell my eyes are worse than last time. I keep complaining about tiny writing on boxes and things. I crack me up. 

Grace sure is thriving under your care, Thel. That's no surprise. She will be a big, regular kitty before we know it. 

I like Susie-Q-Subaru, Carol Ann, it cracks me up too. 

We were supposed to get down to freezing last night. I remembered the hoses are still hooked up, and DGS2 went out and unhooked them. It's supposed to get back up to 70 in a few days, so maybe I can get out there and trim bushes. The weather is really crazy. The low broke a record, and the high broke a 100+ year old record of being the low high for the day. It was 50. It was really windy all day, and felt cold. 

I better get hopppin', I need to gather up my sit and sew stuff. Since I was at Paddy's cabin, I don't know what I was working on. I have a couple of things I know I can work on.

Rita, for me, cataract surgery was a whiz!  I could see clearly in that eye 1/2 hour after the surgery, had a check up by the surgeon, then went home with some drops.  Waited for two weeks and did it again for the other eye.  Same result, and I use glasses only to read in the evenings.  Now I can even see easily to drive after dark.  That was two years ago; I wish the same great results for you!

I call my Subaru Forester "Susie-Q"!  Yeah, I know, Susie-Q Subaru -- my son laughed his head off!  Good night all.

Goodness Rita,  cataract surgery.  I hope that doesn't slow you down for long.  I hope they don't waste any time getting you in for that appointment.

Yah Barbara,  nice news on your appt.  We've got a freeze warning too for tonight.  

I decided to turn the furnace on.  Started right up!  Yippee!  I don't wanna wake up to 60 degrees or less inside again tomorrow. 

Hmmm,  Missy is an idea.  I'm still thinking.  Talked to Mark and he does want to go and look at the car.  I guess he's trying to make sure I get my/his $$ worth.  I filled him in on the little flaws it has and made sure I told him how I thought it was the perfect fit, I had checked Kelly BB etc. so he knows I did my home work as far as price etc.  

Grace is improving every day.  Her stools are almost normal, her eyes are cleared up without having to wash them a few times a day. She does still have days of meds to enjoy tho.  

I think it's time for my evening oatmeal.  Penny and I enjoy some before bedtime each evening.  

Comment by Rita Crofoot yesterday

Kathleen, next Tuesday is preop for all the measurements etc, then they will set surgery date....soon I hope

Comment by Rita Crofoot yesterday

How about Miss Independence,for obvious reasons,and Missy for short.

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury yesterday

Rita, good that your mac degen is progressing slowly. Wish it could just come to a halt. Do you have an appointment for the cataract surgery?

Barbara, good news that you can wait 6 months. So you couldn't just get the lens replaced? Glasses can be so expensive!

50 degrees and windy tonight. My phone tells me it feels like 44. 20mph winds but it sure seems to be gusting higher than that. 

Comment by Barbara S/IL yesterday

My appt went well. Dr.said she didn't need to see me until 6 months, but I'm still going to the retinal specialist every few months. My prescription changed a little and my current specs have a chip in the lens that can't be fixed. Of course it's on the good eye side. I ordered new glasses. They probably cost about what your new car does, Thel.

Save some pie for me, Mary Alice. Call your brother and tell him to bring you some whipped cream.

We have a freeze warning for tonight. Brrr..

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

Oh YES Rita.  Help me name my car.  Only thing that comes to mind for me is Cam (get it-short for Camry).  The interior looks like it's never been sat in.  The latches for the fold down back seats are so stiff they feel like they've never been used.  The trunk doesn't look like it's ever been used, yet it's a 1994 vehicle.  Yah I know old, but the value from Kelly Blue Book is a couple hundred higher than his asking price.   There IS some peeling paint on the nose but Joe said he could easily touch that up for me.    Yah!  I'm excited.  

Comment by Rita Crofoot yesterday

Cute little Camry and looks like Thel's car to me.Fingers crossed.... Name it.The l that will help make it yours.

Mary Alice  I would for sure start a daily journal,for mom We have done it since the 70s and has saved our heinies many times. Drs pay more attention if  things are recorded, We started for our business,but it has worked for personal thing s  to.

Appt with eye Dr interesting macular degeneration still progressing, but slowly,  but he says I do need cataract surgery, probably why I fell in that dim basement.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

I'll be right over for pie Mary Alice!  Geeze, what's with microwaves these days.  Joe's drew it's last breath last week.  

I went at looked at the Camry, took it for a test drive.  The interior looks like brand new.  Hard to believe in a used vehicle.  I test drove it and it drives like a dream.  I've spoken for it and have a message sent to Mark (landlord/financier).  I'm sending up lots of prayers that things will continue to move forward if I'm meant to have this vehicle.  

OH and the footings are being poured today for the new Dream Center on the church campus.  It's the building that will house all the outreach programs for the church.  Completely debt free !
