Stormy Saturday

Saturday, August 30, 2014

I took a half tramadol last night, so slept fitfully but pain-free for a few hours.. Then in the chair later.
Up to grocery shop and home to run dishwasher, start laundry, fold laundry, toss junk mail and start to organize bills. DD got a free AARP membership from Walgreen for me when she got three Rx's filled a couple days ago.. I love it when hey give it to you on the cash register receipt. I have not paid for a membership in years. I registered my AARP card at Walgreen for double savings and that saved me $16 for one year membership again.

Had to get some birthday cards in the mail, start to clean fridge interior too.
Of all things, I need to vacuum my OVEN. Yes, oven. When I cleaned it, there were a pile of ashes on the bottom, so need to get those out before using it tomorrow ..

I am roasting a half turkey for dinner tomorrow..

I just finished hauling in groceries this morning when the very black sky opened up and we got a deluge!! It sounded like the train was rushing through behind the house, but was the rain!!

I ponder today the reason for the holiday this weekend.. The labor riots to gain today's modern rights and safety measures in our workplace. I treasure the sacrifices and pain the people went through for the future generations.

    We had a very heavy rain today as well.

What do you use your AARP card fo? Does it come in handy for your vacation rental?

    What a great idea, about vacuuming the oven. There always are those little ashes is the corner and I know that a rag leaves some of them in there jus t to get burnt on again. Glad you got a good nights sleep, min started out great, then at 2:30 woke up and couldn't get back to sleep so got up and read for a couple hours then back to bed. Seems like I go thru this a couple times a week. It was so blah here yesterday that I took a nap in the afternoon and I know that is why I had a bad night. That is why I don't na; very often.

    I've never thought about vacuuming the ashes out after cleaning the oven. I'll have to try that.

I'm glad you were able to at least sleep pain free. It sounds like you are having a busy day today.

The rain hasn't hit us down here yet, I think it's going to later. It's so humid today, I already can't breathe and it's not making it any better! We put the air on.

I hope you have a great weekend. emoticon
