Hey, Kids, there's a nip in the air. Feels kinda like autumn is right around the corner. Almost every day has been beautiful for the last few weeks and everything is lush and green, but there's still that something in the air that says it will soon be the season of falling leaves and fields being harvested.
Personally, I am ready for the lawns to go dormant. I mow so many hours every week, that I am literally exhausted by 7:30 at night. Several times I've needed to go to bed, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it when the sun is still up. The mowing is tough enough . . .but Lordy, the trimming is a real b-----d.
Go ahead and say what your thinking. "Pull on your big-girl panties and quit your sniveling!" hehe
I had my next-to-last chemo on Tuesday, then went back in Wednesday and today to get my white blood cell shots. Soooo, it's next week for the final treatment and then I will be ringing the bell in celebration. It's nice that they have you go through that. It signals something final about the whole deal.
Well, the grandkids are back in school today. Alec was a little shell-shocked when Jenna told him that it was this week that it started. All of us were under the impression that it began next week. Either way, it was inevitable.
It appears that this is the "season" for the Paul Girls to get operated on. Sister Judy had foot surgery last Friday ( and is doing splendidly), and sister Sandy had a knee replacement on Wednesday. She had some complications controlling her blood pressure before the operation, and when she went home yesterday, the compression socks on her legs were so tight, that she couldn't bend her knees to step up into the house. And then she fell. Not good. Finally got in the house and is doing a bit better. I will keep in touch with her to make sure she is recuperating.
And probably in the next few weeks, I will be getting my lymph node tumors ripped out. "Sure looking forward to that," she said sarcastically. So, three out of us six siblings will have been reconstructed in one way or another. Stay well, Karen, Ken, and Evan!!
I needed to make a sign for my Woodbridge building, promoting the fact that we are renting out the big room for baby and wedding showers, reunions, etc. Hubby brought me this really neat road sign that he had used when we were running our bridge building business. The sign was originally a big reflective arrow which directed traffic. The sign itself is heavy aluminum. I flipped it over and painted the whole thing almond color. Then I stenciled a big sunflower (I do love sunflowers), and then worded it FOR RENT EVENT ROOM and then my phone number. Hubby put it up for me yesterday. I will take a picture of it when I finally get a bale of straw. I am planning on doing a ""lawnscape" at the driveway entrance. I went to Theisen's this morning and checked to see if they had their bales in yet. Nope, no pumpkins or gourds --- just lots of mum plants. I suck at having mums. They die immediately in my possession. So, I will go with the silk, artificial flowers that I do every year.
That's pretty much all for now. Guess I might turn on the TV for a few minutes and see what national disasters have happened so far today. It truly is an every day occurrence lately. Okay, so everybody hang in there. Better times are a'coming. I swear.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY, PLEASE
