Good Sunday Morning, Kids,
Time for a new Porch for the New Year. Gonna go back to read the last posts on #1106 before I post here. Y'all might want to do that too. Texted with my DSIL and the text I got from Verizon wasn't a scam. He doesn't have unlimited data but has quite a bit. I don't use it but I think his Mom does. In any case, someone must have been streaming video and went over the limit. He had to buy some extra. It's seldom that I'd ever have cause to use it, only for traffic directions and that uses almost no data.
Sylvester drank some water out on the lanai this morning. I watch him and check his pee lumps but not obsessively. He is sitting here on the sofa looking soooo adorable. His eyes are dilated which only adds to his beauty. He likes having a kitty facial with the new gizmo but only on one side at a time. Claudia says her big cat wants to bite his. Tomorrow is the feast day of Saint Sylvester. Since we don't know when he and Tweety were born, I guess I'll celebrate him on the feast day. The name means woodland and wild. Can't find that Saint Sylvester was a patron saint of anything. My Sylvester is no saint!
Joe wanted to come over yesterday so I could help him with his resume to run for the big board. He started to feel ill at home and lay down for a couple of hours. When he got here and sat down and we were halfway through the first paragraph, he said he needed to go down to his car. When he didn't show up again, I found him inside Dennis's and Grace's condo shooting the breeze. I worry about him. He has tremors in his hands so bad I can't read anything he is holding. He sees the doc often enough but don't know whether the doc knows about the tremors and whether he knows Joe is smoking again. I got my printer to print but only in blue. Good grief. I saved his resume and emailed it to the mgmt. co so they can print it out for him. Me thinks I need a new printer. This one is a pain in the ass.
No one won the Mega Millions so Tuesday's jackpot will be about $415 million. Gonna get a ticket. Besides giving a lot away to good causes, I'd enjoy being able to fly first class. I'd visit my kids more often.
Barry, I love the shrimp plants but they were the wrong choice for the stairwell atrium. That landscaper led us astray. When the shrimp like blooms drop off, they smell putrid and look like dog poop. AACCKK!! Yes, I could put my phone in airplane mode at night but I usually don't get calls that late. Text messages either. The fleas our cats get down here are very tiny. They look like poppy seeds and they do bite humans. That cat Nancy rescued from the outside had them and they got in her carpet. She had bites all over her ankles. Tweety lives outside but doesn't get them. Hope the winter doldrums leave you now that the days will be getting longer.
Rock, loooove the bris joke. The sourpuss at Lowe's wasn't there when I shopped. I checked out through the garden center because I wanted to pick up a few plants for the bldg. No need for a disguise kit. Don't know what I'd do but Lucy had some great ones. I always liked it when she wore a big mustache. So far, I've not turned on the heat. I bundle up in my fuzzy robe. Right now, we are in a heat wave with temps in the mid-80's for the next week at least. My electric bill last month was $28. Our utility advertises that we have the lowest rates in the country. I noticed a big drop when I switched out my regular bulbs to LED's. Hope it warms up for you.
Sun, I don't even try for beautiful. That ship has sailed. It's a lot of work just trying to hold the line and seems for me a losing proposition. I need to trim my hair today. I've been wearing it a bit longer and it's easier to keep up. It's just gotten a bit too long so time for a snip. I could never go through training a puppy again. Babies and puppies mean no sleep. As it is, I don't really get enough to feel well. Hope now you can get some rest.
Granni, I hope and pray all goes well with your DD. That's a really good idea for everyone to take her lead when it comes to what to talk about. I know all this has not been easy for any of you. I continue to pray and ask Saint Dymphna to watch over her. I've always left decorations up til New Year's. Then, I'm ready to start a new year and hope it's better than the last one. In my case, this means removing the wreath from the front door. Another year of not feeling up to decorating. As it is, I'm having a heck of a time cleaning out that hoarder room. So many interruptions. Of course, I'm not going to choose cleaning over having lunch with my pals. Hope all y'all can enjoy the lunch and hope all goes lovingly well.
Time to go read the real newspaper. It's not as big as usual. Guess not that many stores are buying advertising inserts. I don't really need anything except perhaps another smart plug. There are three squirrels running around on the slash pine branches just outside the lanai. I think they are randy. It looks gray out so will likely be a humid and hot day today. The sprinklers ran during the night so will not cut back the shrimp plants today. I still haven't cleaned out the fridge side so can do that. I fixed Brussels Sprouts for dinner last night with bacon. Sooo yummy! I got the FJ question. Feels good cause I haven't gotten one in a while. Helps to know my brain hasn't completely turned to mush.
Hope all y'all have a wonderful Sunday.
