Been a slow moving morning for me, but I'm here for T Stands For Tuesday. :) And it's been a whole week again since I blogged. Goodness! Life has been busier for me than I have been used to for years--and I didn't even really do that much--LOL!
Let's see...we've had a lot of this. Rain. Enough that it has remained too wet for them to pour Dagan and Leah's patio...and looks like this is supposed to keep up pretty much all week.
We do have breaks here and there.
Beautiful blue and white breaks.
But they haven't lasted long enough to dry the black earth...
...so they can drive equipment on it, you know? Soon.
I was having my monthly packages being delivered last week...and there were issues. I had one package go "out for delivery"...in Omaha, Nebraska! LOL! It finally made it up here, but the ArtBin container I bought was cracked and a corner broken off. So, they're sending me a new one, but I have to get the broken one mailed back before 30 days are up.
The rest was just kitty litter, cat food, and nothing exciting...but we had to work around my deliveries and Leah and Dagan's schedule so I didn't make it over until Friday and Saturday this last weekend. I never know what we're going to do when I go over there. Sometimes we just end up hanging out and don't get all that much baby stuff done. Both Leah and I tire easily--LOL! But yesterday we got baskets of baby clothes folded, organized by size, and put away in the dresser and a storage tub (for the larger clothes). Leah had an appointment with the midwife at 3pm and I had Pam (library lady) coming, too, so I headed home early.
I have some really interesting looking books to read.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (note the trusty thermal mug--which now travels with me to Dagan and Leah's, too)...
...Morgan's Passing and A Patchwork Planet by Anne Tyler...
...and The Bean Trees and Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingslover.
When it has been too damp/wet for me to spend time on the porch, I figured Miss Karma might like her new diaper pail box slid under the chair.
I was right. ;)
Starting today we are hitting around 80 degrees or more and it's expected to stay hotter for the rest of the week...and damp. Time for the AC. (When you live on third floor you can just add at least five degrees by afternoon.)
Yes, I forgot to take pictures at Dagan and Leah's every time I was there. :( I even had my camera with me. Duh!
Well, I will be going back over tomorrow. Two days in a row is pretty hard on me (not that I did a lot--good grief--lol!), but I am going to try for M-W-F this week. Face it. I am not used to being out and about--at all. I usually never left these four walls but once every 1-3 months. At least I can usually scoot over those 2 miles even if I am not feeling tip-top, you know? I love the new recliner they bought and it is just nice to be out and visiting with my two favorite people...quite soon to be three. :)
Karma's taking this shift quite well...as long as I am back before dark. She should be really accustomed to my being gone sometimes by the time it gets dark earlier. Karma sleeps most all day, anyways. Now she just snoozes close to the door--LOL! She wants extra attention and cuddling when I get home, but she doesn't seem to be too stressed out or anything. Except the night I came home after dark...she complained...loud and long! So I remember to leave a light on when I leave, just in case, because I never know how long I will stay. I usually don't make it over until early afternoon and then I play it by ear--see how my body-boss is doing that day--LOL!
Leah's due date is next Wednesday the 25th--so there may be news on that front soon!! Baby has been in position for a while now. :):)
Blogger is really acting up--flashing pink and yellow error boxes regularly--I hope this will post. When I am home I have been kind of collapsing. Gramma Rita has to get used to all this activity. ;) Today looks like a perfect day to read and watch the boob tube--LOL! Have a wonderful, wonderful day!!!
