Not Much, just as well

Today I learned that a guy who was in our wedding party is going to be a “Pappy”. That seems odd to me, I’ve known him since our church camp days, which means more than 40 years. He’s old enough, just a few months younger than I am, and I remember holding his firstborn son when my own was just a toddler. And his kid got married a couple years back, so I guess it’s time to begin his family.
Still… him… a grandparent. Time keeps moving on.

The weather is dismal and getting colder and darker. We’re expecting snow flurry and a major drop in temperature this evening.

Therefore, I took advantage of having an open day to run some errands before any sort of Alert happens.
I mailed off the envelopes containing bill payments, got a haircut at the beauty college on 50% off day (my charge was $4) carried the recycle baskets to the town bins, bought a roasted chicken to make a casserole for supper.

I talked myself out of stopping at a craft store. Over Christmas break, I re-organized a couple shelves and bins in my hobby room, and found some nice stuff waiting, with a couple Unfinished Projects I should work on before starting new stuff.
Here at home, I found the coupons waiting beside the keyboard. Good thing I did not try to buy anything!

The reason I sat down at my desk here and now was to shred a bunch of junk forms which arrived unwanted in the mailbox. I know somebody gets paid to stuff the envelopes, and a government employee is paid to drop ’em thru the slot, but I think they are way too much trouble for me.

So, my sidetracked is done, and I gotta go. JEOPARDY! is happening in a little while, and I gotta get my cuppa hot chocolate ready for when Oscar and I settle in on the couch.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    this evening, I began to crochet a baby doll blanket of BERNAT Softee 3 ply yarn, donation to the activity center. Finally settled on my ADDI 4.0 hook and a straight double crochet stitch, and halfway thru Row 3.
    Now I’m going to get the sheets from the dryer and make the bed before I collapse into it 🙂

    I hope Oscar is making some progress. Your keeping busy is the right cure for these gray days. Stay warm and safe!

    Will be giving Sub-Cu fluids to the cat over the next few days. He also got a vitamin shot, an appetite stimulant, and we have to finish all the antibiotic pills.
    And he should eat whatever we put in front of him, preferably the Renal Health (expensive) wet food.
    Not giving up on him yet !!!

    He hopped out of the carrier at the bottom of the porch steps and high-tailed over to the bushes, then came inside soon enough.
