It is unseasonably warm today for October. Yesterday I was sure I was finished again, with the ripe raspberries.. Today I saw even more red globes hanging from the bushes!! We so appreciate them in the winter when the snow is up to our waist in the back yard. I am doing all the little things around her, making appointments, cleaned out my purse, balancing moms checkbook, cleaning full bathroom lighting globes. They are very heavy glass. I am always afraid I will drop one.. there are six of them over the mirror, so we need all of them..

Spent a long time on the phone with CVS Caremark yesterday regarding my mail order Rx's. Seems the insurance company was bought out by another in AUgust, without my knowledge, which means that the new company did not recognize my account because it was when I joined.. Waiting for my meds, nothing comes in mailbox, so I got it straightened out,, had to fax places and call my doctor to have them re-write one of my Rx's..

Such fuses for things that should have been done correctly in the beginning.. what is going to happen when I lose my marbles and cannot remember what is what? that is what scares me,, somebody will forget my diapers-by-mail, or drugs-by -mail or whatever..
There I will be no pants or pills to pop!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hope you keep getting those fresh raspberries! I love 'em! Dealing with anything medical, doctors, insurance companies, superscription, etc. is all a pain in the patootie these days. No one wants to help the customer anymore. . . it's frustrating.

A teensy bit behind..

Monday, October 01, 2012

I finished everything on my cleaning list yesterday except the carpet cleaning. I ended up doing five loads of laundry, but huge loads.. I had to split them up to dry them so I would not break a belt!!
Today was a long work day and had to do moms banking afterwards, so got home in time to shower, get a crock pot of beef stew going, sort mail and get online. DD went in basement and brought up our foot massage station,, I loved soaking my tootsies and getting them massaged at the same time.
The carpets will have to wait,, maybe tomorrow, I can open all the windows and crank that steamer up!!
I am just happy I cleaned one of the bathrooms, vacuumed the floors, and got the dishes and laundry finished.

    It seems there is always a mess up in healthcare these days. I called and asked ablout a referral, it had not been done.
The Dr sent a copy and Dh had my notes on his and he on mine.
It has taken a month for a referral to arrive on the other Drs desk. Today they dsaid 30 to 0 days to see the DR ?????,
It's just getting like socialized medicine back home you are always waiting and checking to get things done these days. It has become a do-it-yourself world right now. You are right about that. If I forget it will not happen, Gee you are smart LINDA !!!!!.
Take care (((HUGS))) Pat in Maine. It is warm here too today emoticon emoticon

    LINDA I have been reorganising my kitchen. DH is having eye issues so I have given him an eye level shelf so he can read that tiny print on the medication bottles. I too am behind but this project is all about weeding out the necessities and making it accessible. HUGS Take care Pat in Maine.
I like Fall cleaning better than spring. I always want to be planting in the spring to get my yard work done. In the fall I want to get ahead so company can come emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon to visit and I am halfway there if i have picked up early. HUGS Pat

Sunday morning, quiet...

Sunday, September 30, 2012

There are 85 shopping days until Christmas. I am very glad I am mostly finished with shopping. I get gift cards for both sisters and some for DD, have the great niece and great nephew's gifts already. Just one more friend to purchase a gift for and get my Christmas cards written Thanksgiving weekend.
We had a fruitful day yesterday.. Some of the little things in life that make me smile:
**Used $$ rewards certificate at Staples that I earned for ink, stocked up on some office supplies on sale with it.
**Got free breakfast near here while we running errands.
**Drove up to gas pump immediately AFTER they dropped the price by $.01/gal!! Every little bit helps, I say.
**Used coupon from paper, stocked my freezer with some ground beef for winter, on sale too!
**Emptied a whole carload of items at dad's house for sale.. My basement has a floor!

Today the game plan is to vac and polish in living room, then I am going to steam clean the carpet while DD does some laundry and some kitchen work.
As much as we work on the weekends, it is still better than being at my job. We are accomplishing a lot in out basement.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Looks like great minds think alike! emoticon It will surely feel good once the car can fit in the garage and then when DS3 gets the dining room table out of there for his new apt. during Thanksgiving week.

Thanks for your comments on my photos. The pic of the fruit is of sour cherries. They make my favorite pie or cobbler. I have fond memories spent with mom....picking, canning, freezing, jams, cobblers, pies... It's been years since I've gone and picked myself, preferring to save the time and just buy from a local farmers market.

I see we are Great Lakes neighbors. I enjoyed your photos of Munising. Our locality sits right between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario....with Niagara Falls, only 20 minutes away...it is so beautiful!
