I’ve looked at all my usual Friday memes – Fantasy Friday, Haiku Friday, Fridge Friday – and decided I don’t want to follow any rules today. So today you get whatever pops into my mind. If you’ve ever been inside my mind you know that could be frightening.
Martha Stewart is visiting “The View” this morning. She’s showing the ladies the proper way to make a bed. I haven’t made my bed yet today. And she has just reminded me that I really need a new mattress. I didn’t need that reminder right now. *turning off the tv*
Did you miss me while I was gone? While I was up I put away my breakfast things and took my morning pills. Now there’s a phrase that lets everyone know I’m ‘way past 30 – “my morning pills.” When you’re young you don’t have morning pills. That is another of those things reserved especially for those of us who have reached a “certain age.”
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day – a time for hearts, and flowers, and all kinds of love. To show my love for Ed, I went clear across town to his favorite fish and chips joint (Aussie Eats) and got him a big order of same. When I got to the home I found that he was not feeling well and had refused to go to the dining room for supper. So, I cranked up the head of his bed and presented him with his Valentine dinner. It was a big hit – he does so love his fish and chips. And I got him a card that plays “Do You Love Me.” So I played that for him and danced while he ate. It made him smile and laugh a bit. A good day!
The weatherman says we will have some thawing again today. It is certainly bright and sunshiny with clear blue skies. However, my weather minder in the corner down there says it is only 9F. I don’t think I’ll be going out for a few hours. But I will be going out today. I want to take a walk in the fresh air. It’s not that I don’t enjoy making laps through the house, but I need some sunshine. I think I’m getting low on Vitamin D.
My son-in-law, Harold, has been out of town on business for nearly two weeks. He is coming home today. Let the rejoicing begin! At least he has a nice, clear day for flying in. His flight was held up when he left because of the bad weather.
So, that’s my day all mapped out for you. Not very exciting, is it? I do get to babysit the almost-4-year-old while mom goes to the doctor in a bit. Seeing as I have let him live this long, I guess it will be fun. He put his life in danger – again – at 7:00 this morning when he started yelling “Gramma, Gramma” and then told me he couldn’t see because it was dark in here. I tried telling him I was sleeping and he should go away, but that only lasted a few minutes. “Gramma, Gramma, I can’t see.” “Well then, turn on the light,” she grumbled as she reluctantly rolled out of bed.
