Good grief! I posted the request not to post at the end of the last Porch and it disappeared. Ratbane, as Rock would say. Crap, as I would say. Actually, that's not what I say but can't post what I would say. We need a poop emoji here. In any case, the deed is done. Decided to post some interesting clouds. We've looked at lenticular clouds before but I found these exceptional. Pic could be doctored but I don't think so.
I didn't watch all my usual Sunday programs this morning. Decided to go shopping while people were in church. I got some plants at Home Depot for the stairwell atria and went to Target to get paper products. They had $10 gift cards with the purchase of three products. That's the best deal they offer. I save a bundle on them. The bill was $60 but I had $40 in gift cards from my insurance co. so only had to put $20 on my credit card. Can't use this $10 gift card til next time but my total cost today was $10 for $60 worth of things. They had 25 percent off of prime beef so I got a steak for tomorrow. I was savin' all over the place. Publix is selling $50 Visa gift cards with the purchase of $50 in groceries. Gonna get one because I'll use the gift card to buy the next groceries and save 20 percent. Woo Hoo!
Star, sounds as though you've got things with DS settled regarding the evening meal. So glad and I'm sure it is a relief to him to know he'll still be sharing the daily meal with everyone. If he wants to be more independent, he will let you know. Each kid is different. I do a bit of gardening here around our condo bldg. It's often more than I can deal with. I hate doing it when Grace is around because she wants all the plants and flowers in front of her condo. Sometimes condo residents are as bad as kids but I can't take away their privileges or ground them.
Julie, I'm glad you're not on heavy duty cause the cold will just drag on if you don't get your rest. I'm glad you found those grippy things for walking on ice. Just hope the worst of the cold is over for you and everyone else who has had such a bad winter. Spring will be extra welcome this year. Sweet that you risk life and limb to care for the barn kitties.
Granni, I think I've got the BP med figured out. I may ask the doc whether I can double the Losartan. I only take 50 mgs. now. I take a whole Clonidine at night; I don't care if I'm loopy during the night. I take about 2/3 of a tablet in the morning. This morning, my BP was 119/69, just about perfect. The Clonidine tablets are tiny and a bit rounded so that they aren't easy to split accurately. After seeing what strokes have done to my friends, I never want to have one. I love living here but it's hard to be so far from my kids. Glad the Bible Study was good. Mom and her BFF once took one and were told the Jews killed Jesus. I had a fit and splained it was the Romans. They didn't go back.
Just responding to the last Porchies to post on the previous Porch. Hope all our Porchies will post here and I'll respond personally. In the meantime, I'm thinking of you all. I've started a new book. It's a romantic novel set in England where the young woman has to figure out the family secret. Like a million other novels but, at least, it is relaxing to read and helps me sleep. The last one, a thriller, was a bit unsettling. Not gonna watch the Grammys tonight. PBS has a special on Princess Margaret. I'll likely fall asleep cause it's not on til 10:00. I think it's in two parts. Can anyone say, Anglophile?
Hope all y'all have a lovely evening.
