Saturday and Grocery Day

Saturday, November 05, 2011

Felt well enough to go to grocery store. Bill is feeling great today. I think he is getting excited about his trip.
Here are a few pics I took just before dark. I can't believe what beautiful roses I am getting. This plant was almost dead not long ago.






Ok Hope you all had a good day
Beautiful weather

  Hi Eleni.......
It is very encouraging that you were able to go to the grocery store. It means you are feeling better physically and it probably did you good mentally to be out and about with people. Also glad to hear that Bill is feeling better. Please tell him Thank You from me for sending the orchid. He wraps like I do.......plenty of tape!!! I couldn't believe it when I opened the box and there were actually 2 blossoms on one of the plants. I hope they aren't the last 2 now that I am the caregiver. I hope Bill has a good trip and I hope that you will be just fine while he is gone. It's a short trip and he will be back soon, so hang in there.
Loved your flowers, as usual. Your blooms are all I will see till Spring comes again here in Wisconsin.
Have a great Sunday.
Patti

    Glad you felt well enough to get out. And glad that Bill is okay, That can really be scary and dangerous.
I envy you the beautiful flowers. I need to move what few I have into the garage soon. We had a hard freeze a couple of nights ago, but I just covered everything up, the next day it warmed up, but next week it's supposed to get cold again.
Take care my friend!

We had a scary night last night as Bill had a reaction to one of his meds. One of those times when you don't know what to do.But he started getting better by time he called me. he is fine today and even went bowling.
I was somewhat better today.Breathing was better.feet are still swollen but hopefully will be better tomorrow. Even felt well enough to do a few light things around the house.I am happy for any improvement.
I have decided to give Brianna Moxie and get a different tank.Angel told me about a small salt water tank that only needs cleaned one a month.Very light maintenance. I will look into that.It even has a self feeder if I wanted to go away for a few days. Who knows.I may change my mind by tomorrow.
Hope you had a good day

    So sorry to hear about Bill and I'm glad he is better. I sure wish you could get the swelling to go down more. . .I'm always running to the bathroom as I drink iced coffee throughout the day which as you know is a natural diuretic so haven't had that problem in quite awhile. I love your new picture you look so pretty and happy. God Bless.

Hugs,

  Hi Eleni.......
Yaaaaaay!!!!! I am so happy to hear that your breathing is better. Now if the swelling would cooperate. Does it help to do ankle exercises? My Mom has trouble with swelling in her feet and if she does her exercises, it definitely helps. It isn't anything that is physically taxing.........it just helps with her circulation and fluid disbursement. Does it seem to help if you move around like you did when you did a "few light things around the house?" I am sure that your Dr. has given you suggestions to help with the swelling, but I am trying to add to them if I can.
Did you send the Orchid earlier this week? I have been watching for it and it hasn't arrived yet. If you didn't get a chance to send it that is fine, but I don't want to stop looking for it if it's on the way. It is a bit chilly for it to be sitting in the mailbox for too long.
I am sorry to hear about Bill's scare. Hope all will be OK now.
I am confused about Moxie. Are you giving her to Brianna or are you getting a bigger tank to keep her with you?
Must close for now. Take care and I am so glad that your breathing is better!!!

Just nothing new going on.
The hose thing Bill got works good for taking water out of fish bowl. But without any filters etc it is going to be something that needs to be done often. Am beginning to think it was a rash thing to do.Worse scenario will be I can always give it to Brianna. It was dumb to get something to take care of when I can barely take care of me.
Our weather is still very nice.
My eating is completely out of control. I can't believe how much I gained and how fast.
The fluid is still a big problem.I do a lot of resting.No Royal it is not pleasant having trouble breathing. My adjustable bed and c-pap hep a lot at night.
ok TV time. Bones should be interesting now that she is pregnant.Watching Criminal Minds I taped now.Glad they brought the two gals back.
Hope you are doing well.

    I have Bones taped and will watch it this weekend as had bowling last night. Birthday party for 2 of my great nieces on Saturday. Supertired today as up to late last night. After bowling I can't seem to settle down so it makes Fridays long. I bought a little two gallon tank that had an air stone and rocks and it didn't get really dirty. Naw, just give Moxie to Brianna if it gets too be to much.

    Hi sweet friend. Moxie might have to find a new home. Goldfish are really dirty..hee..hee and I don't mean that in a BAD way. emoticon They are a fish that really need a filter, but they are kinda beautiful so it might be worth the effort.

Sorry you are having a down period. Just rest often and take good care of yourself! emoticon

  Hi Eleni.......
Sorry Moxie isn't working out...........it looks like it's either a larger bowl, a filter, or a present for Brianna. I think that at this time, the latter is the better choice, unless she isn't into fish.
I am really tired tonight! I spent the day cleaning, re-lining, and painting two more kitchen cupboards. I started them a couple of months ago but then put them on hold when we were so busy with family and company. Now I am back at it again and have one above the refrigerator and my pantry area and I am done with the kitchen. That will be a good feeling. The pantry area will probably take a couple of days as I have a lot of sorting and re-organizing to do.
Take care of yourself. I am still praying for you.

Sorry I am just not myself lately. Probably because I am so tired all the time and breathing isn't the greatest.Potassium being low isn't helping.
Bill brought me a hose to help keep Moxies water better cleaned. I may have to get just a small goldfish if she doesn't last.She stays at top of bowl a lot.
Our weather is awesome..I saw a recipe that sounded good the other day and I think I will make it this weekend.Suppose to mix a spice cake mix with pumpkin pie filling and make muffins.
Bill is leaving for Richmond this coming Monday and will be back on Thursday.I hate that he is going but he needs to go see his sister. Plus he needs a break. I have to decide what to do about the mail.Our driveway is too steep for me to navigate by myself.I can either stop delivery or ask a neighbor to bring it up.I will probably go with having neighbor bring it up.
ok Time to watch DWTS.
Hope you had a good day.

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
I love your pics, are they all family? I'm sorry you're tired all the time. Potassium being low is a big drag. I see my specialist in couple weeks. I'm doing pretty good with all that, knock on wood. Husband has to get a stress test today which I'll go with him for as he may have to be put to sleep. After that he has an appt with his pain specialist. It seems like all we do is go to doctors. Weather has been nice here this week too, alittle chilly that's all. I had a great time in Las Vegas last week but it's nice to be back too. Those muffins sound good, take care while Bill is gone.

love,
Margaret emoticon

    I do hope your breathing problems go away for one reason or another - either medicine, more potassium, blind luck, etc. It's got to be frightening to be sort of smothering all the time.

  Hi Eleni........
I wish that you were feeling better. I hate to hear that you aren't because there is nothing I can do except pray that things get better very soon.
Your little Goblins look so cute. Elizabeth was the Little Mermaid last night. We made the mistake of waiting for her with masks on behind some pumpkins. When she came up the sidewalk (it was very dark) we jumped out and she jumped about 10' in the air and ran screaming to her other Grandparents. We had NO idea she would be that scared!!! She calmed down pretty fast and was wearing our masks herself in just a few minutes so we weren't in the DogHouse for too long.
Take care of yourself and enjoy DWTS. I am watching it while I am typing.
Later........

Not much going on.
Roxie doesn't pay any attention to Moxie at all.I wish I were better able to do things I would have gotten 2 different kinds. But It would have meant a bigger tank. and I know what that leads to.Years ago i started out with a small tank and ended up getting better filter systems etc and finally getting a huge tank.Lots of work. But I do like the black buggy eyes and the white with red top a lot. But for now will see how long Moxie lives. One article I read said they can live for years if well taken care of.
If I had a dog house Bill would be in it. He has promised to get old plants out of garden and rearrange some others. Today he went out to start and told me to show him When I came out he said it would just be a minute.20 minutes later he is doing something on roof. I gave up.He tuckered himself out doing other stuff so now i won't let him do flowers. So he is not always perfect. LOL
The second rose bush I had brought to back is starting to look better too. Looks like I will be bringing them all back one by one.
Does anyone know what kind of pine tree this is.

Here is another of my orchids starting to bloom.It is small blooms but cool looking


And another grandson.

OK Gotta go check supper. Hope you have a good weekend and stayed warm. Sorry but it is great here. Perfect weather.

  Hi Eleni........
I would love some of your warm weather right about now. My hands are frozen as I type this. It seems like it always cools down for Halloween night when all of the little ones are Trick or Treating.
We went through a period of time when we had fish too. We started like you with one for the oldest boy and it grew into a nightmare......not the fish, but the hobby!!! The last fish we had was a Piranha, which was just a baby when we bought it, but Ken kept putting it in larger tanks and it kept growing!!!!! The last tank it was in was a 50 gallon tank which sprung a leak while Ken was gone and I was the only one home. We had water everywhere and I was afraid to go near the Piranha. I did manage to scoop it up in a big kettle and kept it alive till Ken got home. He sold it 3 days later.......at my urging.

Have a great Halloween. emoticon

I only wish I had a man in my life that was just half as handy and nice as Bill sounds like. Another warm day here in CA--was it nice in Florida? Take Care.
