The eye surgery is over with and I am seeing some better but not perfect yet as I have to have the left eye done on the 2nd of April. Then I really should be able to see perfectly again. Today was a surprising day as girl friend I worked with stopped in to see us and while she was here a knock came on the door and when my husband opened the door there stood my grandaughter from South Carolina. Her mother was with her but stayed behind so Jerri Lynn could surprise us. Her older sis was also here. She works for and accountant in Webster, N.Y. Eventually someone went to Pizza Hut and brought back pepperoni pizza, wings and bread sticks. We had planned on having homemade pea soup but it seems like no one cares for that but the two old people. We also had bologna for sandwiches but because it was light bologna no one would eat it. So this evening we finished up left overs for our supper. Tomorrow it is roast beef dinner so if anyone is interested let us know and we'll set another place at the table. The weather today has been absoutely beautiful. Probably in the 60's. I even spent some time on our deck with my two grandaughters. Good night for now and will be looking to hear from everyone.

This has been a very quiet Wednesday and also very windy.. The Temperature on the thermometer read 55 degrees but my husband was out and he said the wind mde it quite chilly. I did not venture out today as I have to go get my right eye done tomorrow. I guess this laser surgery is not something that will not hurt but will make me see better I hope. Just had word from my daughter in Binghamton that she is going to see my grandaughter in Mississippi on April 14th and will be there for one week. I know she is excited as this will be her first grandchild. OK friends I have to close and go watch Larry King.

Today was a beautiful day.sunny but cool. We had a birthday dinner for one of the girls . One of her sisters and husband,also her stepbrother and his wife were here to enjoy a ham dinner and apple pie. Lots of good conversation and great to see the kids together. Everyone helped clean up and the whole process went fairly fast. Of course I stayed out of the way with my walker as there was no more room in our small kitchen. I am still learning about this blog business so hopefully I am doing ok. Hve a great week everyone.

Today was a day in waiting. Let me explain. Congress passed a law that said if you have a oxygen concentrator for 3 years you own it. That means any expense incured is ours. Luckily and amendment was passed that says if you have it for over 3 years you can renew your contract for another 3 years before you become responsible for its maintance. I was in luck because I have had my concentrator for 5 alost 6 years so today I started a new contract. God was looking out for us today. Tomorrow I hope to be able to get out and go for a ride as it is supposed to be almost 60 and sunny. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Lilly

Yesterday I rode to a nearby town to the Menoite Store where I like to buy my spices and cheese. Such a variety. I also purchased some bacon ends that I use for cooking and seasonings for soups and other foods. Just the ride on a beautiful sunny day was enough for me but going to the store made my day complete. I was totally tired out by the time we arrived home as that was a lomg journey for me. Now that it is nicer weather maybe I will be able to venture out more. Can't tolerate to much cold and wind of the winter months. Today should be quiet and restful as I look at the sun shining it makes me think that I will soon be able to sit on our deck and enjoy the warmer weather.

Wednesday adventure

Today was a busy day for me as I had to go out this afternoon and get my hair done. Had decided that I would get a perm as I haven't indulged in that expense since last July. What a difference when I looked in the mirror. But finally did recognize myself. Then when my husband picked me up at the hairdressers it was such a nice day and I don't get out often so I suggested we go for a ride. Then we couldn't make up our mind where we wanted to go so we proceded to ge lost and had a few chuckles of our own because we have lived here for several years and then had to turn aroung several times to find our way home.. So off to home it was and a wonderful spaghetti supper make by my husband. Now it is time to relax until our next adventure.

first time entry

Have had a quiet Sunday with one of our daughters and husband here for a quiet dinner with my husband and my self. Really seemed nice after a busy Saturday with one of the other daughters here and her four children and their significant others. Lucky we have so many children to keep us occupied as I do not get to go out much.
