Today I rested in the morning and then around 3 PM I went in the pool and exercised, rested on my floating chair. I walked around the pool 10 times and there where some leaves on the bottom I was getting them with my feet making the leaves float to the top or ride my foot to the top. Got some leg exercise doing that.
I pulled most of my watermelon and some of the white potatoes had gotten raked up so I have a hand full of little ones that I will boil up and season with parsley, garlic and pepper. If they are all little they will be good for potato salad. Found 3 strawberries while I was pulling weeds and a real nice big tomatoe. Tomorrow I will pick the rest of the ripe tomates and they are regular, italian, and whoppers which I will drop in boilding water to get the skins off and them cut them up and cook and make a spaghetti sauce. When the tomatoes come on totally because I have about 10 plants or more a lot of sauce will be made up. I make some plain, some seasoned and some with meat in it.
I went in and took a shower, washed my hair, made dinner, ate and fed the dogs. Then I went back out and started to pull that lace type weed off my strawberries. It covers them just like a blanket and I have a mess to get cleaned out. I am going to see if my daughter will come and help me this weekend but by then I may have it done. She is coming tomorrow too pick up some of the watermelon, tomatoes and lettuce. If you keep picking the lettuce it won't seed out but if you miss a day or 2 it will. I could just plant some more for the end of summer into autumn thats what I will do tomorrow.
So I did enough for today and I hope not too much, we shall see. Tomorrow little Callie is going to get groomed and I may even do it tonight, who knows.
Another day step by step or a dozen steps. I will get there and tomorrow I get the blood test so if their is anything wrong the Dr. will call me. I called my girlfriend and asked her if she wanted to go too lunch but she is too busy with moving. I will get the test, do some errands and come home and then groom Callie. Try and make time for the pool and pull more weeds so my strawberry plants aren't ruin. Never a dull moment in life so we just go on. I just cut 1 of the watermelon and it was not half way ripe. I will learn too judge myself and not panic.
Everyone have a great Wednesday and love the weather as I hope yours is better. God bless you always and forever. Half way through the week for some and others their vacations.
Catch you tomorrow with a few more steps.

Most the time my daughter and her family come too swim around 5 PM but today she came about 1 PM and it was very hot and sunny. Most the time everything keeps her busy and she doesn't get to get in long but was determine to get in today. Remember me saying the pool is in full sun and everyone got burnt. Of course I was not out there, too much for me in breathing and I hope that that can straighten out soon. Her husband was coming when he got off work and she said she was going to get dinner. Hot dogs, the usual and I said no Chicken and I would buy. I had made potato salad and mac and cheese which would have lasted me most the week but I made some bake beans with brown sugar and ketchup and the chicken enough so they could have 2 pieces or more.
Her husband came and they all where in the pool so I worked on my Spark points. My daughter came in and we called places to see who had the best buy on chicken and ended with Walmart. They had just pulled their last batch for the night so she save us 2 orders.
I gave my daughter $20 so she could get it and some sodas. The others got out of the pool and I had put the umbrella up and dishes, silverware out but they all came in so they would not be too hot to eat. We waited and it got to be an hour and then she called she was on her way but had lost the $20 in the store and had too use her money. She looses so much, telephones, money, wallets, pocketbooks, keys not once but several times. Well we ate and had plenty and DGD ate 5 pieces of chicken and several helpings of the other things. She can eat and it is going to bite her later if she isn't curbed back. The genes in the family make big people and it will be a fight for her.
The race came on and I missed most of it but that is okay. I had enough of the food left for maybe 2 helpings and then my daughter wanted to know if she could take chicken home too the other guy that is a friend too her nephew she is raising that lives with them. I gave her the bake beans, mac and cheese and potato salad for him. I will just make more tomorrow. Instead of mac and cheese I will make some rice and some potato salad. I like things that I can grab during the day and not have to cook.
Now if it doesn't rain tomorrow I have filled the pool with more water and it is still warm. The little heater that I bought is really working so I will be able too swim later in the year. I will get in the pool and exercise and also relax. I have watered everything and now it is up to the rain or not. My poor garden is a mess but I can't do anything in this heat. I have all week to get things done since I don't have to bowl since they are closed for a week. I will go get my blood test on Wednesday and maybe call my girl friend and go to lunch. That's a plan and then the rest of the days I can work outside and work on me.
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and enjoy Sunday with the Lord, family and friends.
The weather is on and we set a record today of another 103. Temps are to fall to the 80's Monday and during the week and that will be a relief for people, me included.
God bless all of you my dear friends. Doing better today and will keep going in that direction.
Catch you all tomorrow in the pool.
