Hi ya gang! It's definitely summer time here in Texas, hot, humid, hot, windy, hot, sticky, hot and did I mention HUMID! Mind you, it may be that I am noticing it more because of getting older, but....it is very, very humid this year! The temperatures have not gotten to the triple digits yet (late for July in TX), but with the heat index....it feels more than 100! The air just seems so heavy, but....sometimes we get lucky and get a little breeze from the south...you got it...warmer and warmer! Temps don't drop below 80 during the night. So, this old girl is just staying in as much as possible and loving the AC (probably won't like my electricity bill...but)! The fur babies are just loving the fact I'm totally devoted to each of their whims to play or eat or a snack or to snuggle or catch a nap with them...LOL!
It was a quiet 4th around here...I tried to keep the fur babies occupied with the fireworks on TV (Macy's was totally AWESOME) so they would not notice too much the ones going off close by. They seemed to make it okay and I think we were all sleeping soundly before midnight...yep, a little late for us, but the fireworks didn't start until 10 and lasted 30-45 minutes since we had so many different cities going off close together. Here's the page I created for me for my FB family/friends/fans this year..! I used a photo from 2004 of me in the TX bluebonnets.

My sister, Kathy, spent the 4th-7th in the hospital....again....they thought it was a flare up of the COPD, but it turns out after the stress test she has a blockage of 80% and one at 50% so they scheduled heart catherization with inserting stents...well, that fell through after a real flare up of the COPD the night before and finally decided to try some new medications at home for 2 weeks, then follow up with the doctor for what's next. Quite a lot of phone calls, texts and loads of prayers for a couple of days kept me pretty busy too!
Plus, I watched the USA team win the World Cup and tried to watch the NASCAR races (a 4+ hour rain delay), but I was way to tired and fell asleep about 12:30 a.m. (It didn't end until 2:45 a.m.) I caught the horrific wreck on the news the next morning.
Yesterday morning I had a few errands to do (had not even started my auto for 5 days...LOL) and had my annual well woman physical...now I need to schedule a mammogram and bone density test, visit with my cardiologist for my annual check up next week, and my teeth cleaning the week after...then I will be through for another year (6 months on the teeth). Thank goodness, I've made it through another one.
This is about all I got accomplished as I have been updating and making
additions, deletions, and corrections to my Ancestry account. Plus I am
reorganizing all my scrapping freebies, tools, etc on my computer to
free up some much needed space before I run out...LOL! Lots of copying
to DVD's too for backups! I have several more photos to scrap....just
trying to find the right mood and the time to sit long enough...!
Okay, the washer and dryer have stopped so that means folding needs to be done and the wet ones put in to dry and add another load to the washer (I changed the bed again this morning), so guess I will hush for now, hoping all of you have a fantastic time creating memories to share. Chat more with you next time. Hugs, Mat
