9/8/19 - Bedtime

Sunday, September 08, 2019

At 7:30 this morning, I would have preferred to roll over and go back to sleep. Instead I got up, had breakfast, and headed to the gym. It would be so easy to blow off my class and start making that a habit. I really like sleeping in, but I've got to keep moving. Inertia is a very powerful force.

I just found out my neighbor is going to have a hysterectomy on Tuesday, and she'll be in the hospital for a couple of days. I offered help, but I know she won't ask for anything. I have been very lucky and, so far, have not had a major operation. I don't want to send flowers, because I would rather do something that will make her life easier. Suggestions?

I cut the lawn today. When I got to the backyard, all the birds lined up on the power wires waiting for me to finish. I mowed as quickly as possible so the sparrows could get back to their dinner.

Sweet dreams everyone!!!

Leslie

    You are so good to your birds! I’m sure your neighbor would like a short visit from you. Perhaps with coffee and a muffin.

    I agree with all the suggestions. A nice bowl of homemade soup, or something around that line. Maybe a nice short visit when you deliver it.

    Take a prepared meal over, one that can be reheated if necessary.

    Suggestions: take her list and go get groceries, pharmacy items, get her mail, take a prepared meal, go to the library and pick up a book, take a pot of tea/coffee and share it together.
    Pets? walk the dog, clean the litter box.

    Don't say, "let me know if there's anything I can do." like the shoe ads...just do it.

    Anytime I was recovering from major surgery, it was just nice to have someone to talk with.
