Yesterday I was in a pair of shorts, the husband was in the yard cleaning flowers beds, spreading mulch and planting flowers. Today we are in sweat pants and sweaters and huddled inside beneath warm blankets.
The wind is not hurricane strength by any stretch but I can see the newly sprouted leafs on the Maple tree whipping back and forth in the breeze. The sun slips out from beneath a cloud but not long enough to warm anything up before going undercover again.
Wanda, Rob and the boys are in Panama City and on a pontoon boat. The weather there is not much better then here, rip tides make it too dangerous to go to the beach. They are making a trip to Dolphin Island on that boat. I question whether there is white caps in the bay. She says they are staying in the bay but being on the water with white caps is something I avoid. I'll feel better when they call me and tell me they are back in their room.
Eventually they will arrive here. I suggested they just leave tomorrow morning and head to Lafayette instead of going to New Orleans. They can hang here until Wednesday morning then head for New Orleans for the afternoon and Thursday. They have to be back in WV by Saturday at 1600 hrs. so they will have to be on the road again early on Friday morning.
Wednesday I will be prepping for my hospital visit and surgery on Thursday.
I'm busy doing house chores; stripping beds and replacing with fresh linens, laundry and a few other odds and ends.
Lunch was a bowl of vegetable beef soup. There isn't much in the fridge for leftovers as the chef has been too busy with his yard work. I would rather live on crackers then cook and then clean the kitchen.
Bugsy and Carrie return today. I kinda sorta miss seeing that bunny in the yard in her run. I miss Carrie too of course. I haven't spent much time with her lately and we haven't shared with her about what is going on with me.
I think I will discuss with her mother today about telling her about the surgery on Thursday. She doesn't need to know all the details but just that I will be in the hospital getting something fixed and that she will be visiting while I am there.
That's it for me for now.
