The Pandemic, Cold Weather and Me.
We braved a wonderful family get together outside, wearing masks and distancing as much as possible with my sister and her family. My daughter and grand daughters were unable to go. Ashley had to be back on campus and Adrienne was in Wisconsin renting an apartment for when her new job begins in January. Linda is very strict about going anywhere so she declined the invitation.
It is very cold...about 40 degrees and I turned on the heat this morning. This limits Jose and I on our walks. He has the Pomeranian fur but still gets cold and I am terribly cold when it is under fifty degrees. He has sweaters but he is so portly that only two fit him.
Tina, my visiting angel was here on Wed and we mailed Christmas gifts to Tulsa. I have most of my Christmas shopping done because when I see something someone would love, I buy it and store it in my
Christmas closet. I did not mail the complete collection of hot wheels or the comforter to Sara because they are so heavy. The packages were huge and it took both of us to carry them. the postage was pretty awful, thirty dollars, but not more than a trip to Tulsa would cost. We have the infamous Tulsa turnpike which will never ever be free like it was supposed to be.
Laura will not be home for Christmas so I am trying to assemble a box that will cheer her up so far away in New York City. I am sending money but I want her to have some surprises as well. I
miss her a lot. I am giving Sara all my Christmas decorations and my big flocked tree because I can't decorate any more since
Bobby's death on Christmas Eve. It just isn't something I am
able to do.
We have a video chat this morning with the VA nurse and I hope that we can handle it. We failed the first one and are trying on a different device. Fingers crossed.
We are trying to cross things off our list. We have a new roof and we solved the ant problem in the back yard. I had my blood test for the month at St Anthony's hospital. We also had direct tv cancelled and had an antenna put on the house so we get about sixty channels free. These were things that were stressing us out. Now we have to have the holly trimmed and the leaves raked and get through with the VA. I don't miss direct tv at all, we never used many of the channels.
I helped my frail neighbor out with grocery shopping and with obtaining her registration to vote. She is being naughty and
needs a cork screw for her collection of wine. She told me her daughter is furious about the wine but when you are very old, I feel you are entitled to wine and chocolate so I aid and abet her in those forbidden pleasures.
Be well, my friends.
