Good Morning, Loungettes!Happy TGIF day! Lovely, sunny day here so far. Which is good cuz Sadie had a run in with a juvenile skunk last night. I did the magic solution on her face and got rid of 99% of the smell, but she needs a full bath today to get rid of the rest. Not what I had originally planned for today, but hey, could be worse.
My Mom scared the chit outta me yesterday. I got a text that she was in the ER. Fortunately it was right about as the guy got done with the garage doors, so I texted her back and asked her if she wanted me to pick up Dick on my way by (he drives limited distances and only to familiar places lately).Got a text message back that was pure gibberish. Mom has a-fib and is on blood thinners and is at risk for a stroke, so you can imagine what I was thinking. I texted back asking her to try again in English, and she called me. No stroke, she didn't have her reading glasses and couldn't see the letters on the phone well enough to hit the right ones. Dick was already there and she was about to be discharged.She was on her way to her trailer to work on cleaning it out and got light headed and weak feeling, so she stopped at the ER before she got to the trailer where she has no phone coverage. The only thing they found wrong was her blood thinner number wasa bit low, so she was told to take an extra blood thinner and call her doc. She felt fine and was going to go to the trailer and do some cleaning out, Dick was going home, so I stopped and turned around and ran some errands and came home.
I stopped at one of the local orchards and picked up a bag of Honey Crisp apples to make a pie with, was going to do that yesterday, sat down for a minute when I got home and fell asleep! This whole needing a nap at 2 peeyem every day is getting tiresome. I did get up and make some baked ziti for dinner that was really good.
Karen--WOW, that is one spooky looking, interesting drink! Many years ago when I was baking a lot more and using food coloring black wasn't an option for food coloring cuz it would "gray out" and you would have to add blue, green and red to get it back to black. In the long run it was just easier to use the 3 colors anyway, and you could vary the proportions to get a good black no matter what you were mixing it into. Or you could go easier and get a various shades of gray. That shot is pretty crazy looking, too! Something about red and black is very unsettling.
Teka--I picked up a quart of apple cider, time to make Apple cider Mimosas!
Chevy--good words for Cammy, and I'll come and help hold the little buggers whilst Cammy smacks them around!
Ugh!I will never be able to look inside a pumpkin again without seeing this in my mind!!!!!!!
Jazzy--that is an awesome sounding drink, and quite the dispenser for it, too!
Go, donut stackers, go!Did you hear the final result yet?
Illi--we will be in your pocket!So kind of you to be thinking of Leslie right now, too.
Chi--I love seeing the seniors light up during music programs. They can be so much fun when they get up and start dancing!
Jazzy--Garage doors got fixed, sort of. It's a 2 bay garage, one bay I have used for years cuz the cable broke and I couldn't get the door open. That door now works fine, just need to set the motor to the remote. There is a bunch of junk piled up outside that door that is headed for the dumpster next, which is still getting filled once a week. The other bay door is fixed, but the motor was smoking and got hot when we were running it to test it, so that motor is burned out, now unplugged, opening the door manually, but need to lock it to keep it closed and have no idea where the key is. So I am very motivated to get the other bay pile up cleaned out so I can start using that side again. Replacing the motor has gone on the future project list. Too funny seeing that doggy digging on the moon!
