Today we went to Seneca Falls ,had some questions to ask the manager of the new Apartment. Finished with that and on to Burger King for a fish sandwich. Fish was good but a little disapointing as they had mayo on it instead of tater ssauce. We ate in the car as I can't breath to well today and my husband put his back out. We sure are a lively couple!! I went into the grocery store there with my trusty walker and bought some meat and now we are on our way home. Went through the drive through at WALGREENS to pick up my meds and now the lively couple are home and ready to call it a day. Lilly

This has been a busy couple of days for us.Really not so busy but have been doing more than we usually do. On Thursday we had a phone call telling us that one of the places we had an application in for a ground floor apartment had one available . Friday morning we called and made an appointment to do go talk to the manager that afternoon. It is in the same complex where we used to live only on the opposite side of the street. Very nice place only not quite as large as where we are now. It looks as thought we will be moving in late July or the first of August. It is about a half hour South of where we live now and in the same area where I used to work. From that appointment we went on to buy flowers for the cemetary. By this time it is almost 2:00 and we are both hungry so off to McDonald's we go and then on to the cemetary to place the flowers. Now it is time for me to go home and my husband is also tired out. Once home we both took a short rest and then I proceeded to make a shrimp salad for the next day as we are going to one of the girls for a picnic. There was only the four of us so we played cards and had hamburg,hot dogs and salad and later in the afternoon we had cheesecake for desert that my husband made. Today being Sunday we fully decided to make it a day of rest but have been busy doing odd jobs that seem to keep everyone busy. Happy Memorial Day to Everyone and God Bless All of Our Armed Forces who have helped to make our daily lives possible. My husband is a Navy Veeteran and I know I sure do appreciate him. Lilly

Yesterday was a busy day for us (Saturday) and the humudity ws not condusive to a person with breathing problems. First off it was the normal daily chores to do.Wash my hair, curl something that doesn't want to be curled,Make the bed ,shower and get ready for the day. In the meantime my husband made breakfast. Bacon ,eggs and whole wheat bagle. I can only manage half of a bagle and one egg then I'm done. I didn't feel like doing dishes so into the dishwasher they went.By Sunday evening it will be full enough to run. Then we had to wrap a birthday gift for our soon to be five year old great granddaughter . That was about a twenty minute trip to their house with the thunder strom and heavy rain coming shortly after we arrived there.About two hours later it had let up enough to get to our car so we decided it was time for us to move on to the grocery store and then home. Just arrived home when another storm hit our area. How to get soaked in a hurry if you can't run or walk fast. Even with the walker I don't get far very fast. We had a late supper and I used the nebulizer at ten o'clock and off to be I went. Good thing I kissed the man goodnight because I didn't even know when he came to bed. Now its time to start another day. Hopefully no rain today and I can at least sit on the deck and enjoy the sunshine.(If the sun ever decides to come throught the clouds) Lilly

A nice weekend for Mothers Day. It was cold on Sunday but no rain so everyone was happy. On Saturday we also celebrated one of our daughter's birthday which is next weekend and also Mothers Day was celebrated. Her son was also here. Our grandaughter is in Mississippi in the Air Force. She works at the hospital pharmacy in Biloxi. on Monday afternoon our daughter called and said they had just had a phone call from her , she had just found out that she is going to have a baby boy. Choen is quite excited as this is her first grandchild. I guess great grandma will have to crochet a blue baby afgan. Tomorrow is a trip to Rochester to see the vascular surgeon to check out the legs again. Always something to take up our time. It is quite lonesome around here without my neighbor as we always saw each other every day . Yesterday I planted some flower seeds in small pots and put them on the window sill in the den. Will have to transplant them if the seeds mature. I don't always have good luck doing that. This morning I went to the beautician and had my hair trimmed as it was longer tham I like it so now I at least feel human again. Lilly

This has been a quiet week here at out apartment building as one of our older residents and our neighbor across the hall went to live with her Lord on Tuesday morning. This was very sudden as we had talked with her on Friday and she suffered a stroke on the way home from visiting her husband who is in the nursing home. She was my closest friend her at the our building,although everyone is very friendly ,she was a special person. Sunday being Mothers Day will be busy here as several of the girls will be visiting and some of the grandchildren. Oh what fun a large family can be. Tomorrow I am going grocery shopping with my husband so I can by my cheeses to make macroni and cheese for Sunday. He is also making an apple pie. Eveyone who comes always brings a dish of somekind. Hope someone brings a vegetable. This is all for tonight as I am tired. Lilly
