We finally got a few days of slow steady rain and cooler temperatures....I'm loving that part. As I sit here with all my windows open, the air conditioner off, all the cats are fed, bathed and asleep, the house is quiet and I can hear the leaves dancing across the driveway. It has to be one of my favorite times of the year. We even had a low temp of 44 the other morning....I had the windows open and "the girls" were searching for cover to get under...LOL! Yesterday was nearly a perfect day...only 70 for the high, lots of clear sky and sunshine. Today is to be 70 and cloudy with a 40% chance of showers this evening as another front moves in from the northwest, but the weekend, no rain and 70 for both days! This is the last weekend of our State Fair too, guess I will miss it this year....will NOT attempt the last weekend with the weather this lovely...too many people will be there to really enjoy it!
I pretty much relaxed this week with all the rainy days. Made a big pot of vegetable soup and a pan of cornbread for the chilly nights....so very good and it is better each time it is re warmed....LOL! My boss and I met for lunch on Wednesday at the Olive Garden...we had a great visit celebrating her birthday.
My friend Jan got some bad news about the nodule they removed from her vocal chord....it was malignant, but the surgeon says he got the most of it and wants her to do 30 daily radiation treatments for it. He says the success rate is 95% for this type. She was really upset, but is coming to terms with it now. She went with me to the podiatrist on Thursday, then we went out for breakfast and then did some shopping, we haven't been able to do that in a while....she felt much better when I took her home...so did I.
The xrays at the podiatrist showed no stress fractures and not really a neuroma, but the beginnings of one, so I got an injection of steroid and lidocaine in the top of the foot...no closed toed shoes that will pinch the toes and ABSOLUTELY NO GOING BAREFOOT (that will be the hardest for me...LOL) for 2 weeks then go back for check up and see how the inflammation is. Feels a lot better already!
With all the hubbub going on around here, I totally forgot Hayden's 5th birthday. She is getting to be such a big girl now and ready for her baby brother to get her next month. Her mommy is ready for him to be here too, she is off work now until he is born (November 6th is due date). Anyhow, I did this QP for her with the latest photo I have of her. The QP is by Neli....doesn't she look cute in this?
Well, off of here, got to get up and move around a bit..then I have to catch up on my blogs I visit and get my freebies....hope y'all make some awesome memories to share. Chat more with you next time. Hugs, Mat
