Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

I'm currently trying to talk myself into getting dressed and making some attempt to clean up here Sandy. The trouble is a louder voice is telling me it can wait a bit longer. lol I might start with the bathroom and see how that goes before I attempt any vaccing and stuff.

I hope your hands are better soon Martha. Sounds like you've had a miserable few days.

Well,  I finally got on a roll yesterday.  I spring cleaned the bathroom, had just put the shopping delivery away and was just about to start on a scrub down of the kitchen when I received a phone call from my cousin Carol.

It ended up with an hour and a half phone call with her as she informed me of my younger sister Penny being taken into hospital after being left unconscious in her home for four days.

I'm cutting a really long story short here but the upshot is that Penny will be in hospital for a while and on release will not be able to go back to living on her own but will be needed to be moved to a state home.  She is now incapable of looking after herself.  Although I'm afraid this should have happened at least a couple of years ago.  It takes an emergency like this before the social services and council finally wake up to their responsiblity.

Carol has been fighting the social services for several years to get Penny the help that she has so desperately needed.

Unfortunately this is just the beginning.  Penny at the moment believes that she will be going home and her dog and 6 cats will be returned to her.  All hell is going to break loose when she finds out this is not going to happen.  The cats are already in a rescue farm and ready to be adopted and Carol's Daughter Grace will be taking on Penny's chihuahua Missy.

The shit is really going to hit the fan when Penny is compos mentis enough to understand what the heck is going on.  Penny has never been the most easiest of people to help, hence Carol taking on her care for the last few years and me taking a back seat now.  Seemingly the hospital are also now figuring out how hard it is to be around and help Penny.

Carol will never know how grateful I am to her that she has now taken on full reponsiblity and I will only have to be updated.  I had to cope with her for the first 60 years of her life before I had to finally say, enough is enough.  Having to be brought up with, and feel responsible for, someone that is not mentally stable is very draining on the soul.  I could write a bloody book on "My Life With Penny".

Anyway.  Today I am going to tackle the jobs that I wanted to do yesterday.

Well....I am NOT cleaning house today. I probably should.  Maybe later. LOL  I had the two oldest girls over the weekend.   I will have them again next Sat night.  Ken will be gone working Fri, to Monday I believe.  
I need to start on my fall wreath or fall might be over...I bought the dang stuff. LOL They are not my fav to make but they are my fav to hang up..
I have fall and halloween things out now.  


I had a sinus infection last week, took a Z-pak.  I don't know if you all know what that is, but its an antibiotic. You take 2 the first day, then one for the next 4 days.   Well it sort of helped my sinus infection, well my ears quit hurting, and my teeth and gums, and jaw, but my head still is sore in spots.  BUT....my knees quit hurting all together. it was wonderful.  As soon as I was done with the med they are starting to hurt again.   I Googled it and I found one story that said this man took the meds for 3 weeks straight  and 2 yrs later he was done hurting.  Hard to believe it would hurt that long.  I have an appt at the end of the month to have a shot put in both knees so I won't have so much pain on vacation. We will be gone most of the first 2 weeks of NOV.   I am going to ask the Ortho Dr about it though.   They will probably look at me like I am nuts.  I asked my daughter (a nurse practitioner) if she had heard of it and she siad there is some evidence that antibiotics do calm down some inflammations.  Maybe there is hope for all this arthritis yet.
  
I use to take a pill twice a day, I cannot remember the name of it, it was a wonder drug.  It is sort of the prescription strength of Motrin.  But I took it for years on an empty stomach running out the door to work and now I cannot take it or motrin at all.  It hurts my tummy right away.   My bad deed.  


Heading downstairs to play on the crafts...I know I need to clean better but its pretty clean. Just a little dust here and there...I might throw the sheets into the washer.   That would be good. LOL 


Take care!!

I woke up bright and early this morning after a very rare good night.  Of course that doesn't mean I am going to get anymore done today than usual.  It just means I have more time to play.

I met my immediate next door neighbour on my right for the first time a couple of days ago.  What a lovely lady.  Just my sort of person.  She came in for a cup of tea and we spent a fun hour chatting about anything and everything.  At last I've finally met someone here that is interesting.  Funnily enough, her name is Brenda too, which is the same name as the (sort of) friend I have made in the next block.  

I say "sort of" friend with Brenda 1 as we don't really have much in common.  Great to have the odd cup of tea with but not very stimulating.  Her whole life revolves around the church, church people and church life, which whilst I understand and appreciate is not for me on a full time basis.  Brenda 2 I think is going to be a much more interesting person to get to know.

Sunday I received an email to say my package was on it's way and I am still waiting for it.  As it needs a signature I can't go far in case I miss it.  It's now peeing me off.  Normally I would get the email and the package would arrive the next day or at the very latest the day after that.  So it's another day of waiting in.

I still haven't shown the floor the hoover for many days so I must do that today.  One load of washing to do and maybe a washing of the kitchen floor.  Apart from that, if my package arrives early I also need to take a walk to the chemist to pick up my prescription that's been sitting there since last friday.

@Wendy - Still thinking of you and yours matie. (((hugs)))

Good Morning

Show the floor the Hoover, I love that.  LOL 
I am going to clean to day too, but the big Hoover will have to wait on hubby, I will show it my small cordless Hoover.  It works well though.  I ordered a 6 new kitchen towels and 6 new dish cloths as I was tired of my hodge podge of towels that were not cottony enough to dry the dishes.  I buy the pretty towels to hang in my stove and dishwasher then when they get older or I change my mind on them I put them in the towel drawer to sue everyday.  But they do not do very good.  My sister-in-law left an all cotton one here and I decided I needed some like that one.  I owe her a new one too.  The ones I ordered I am not real fond of, not as good of quality as hers. She said she gets them at Kohls but I sure did not see any online anyway. I need to look in the store. I might go tomorrow.  
Hubby is working all weekend and I will have the 2 oldest girls overnight Sat-night.  I am making a big pot of soup today, they love soup so I will have that around for them.  I still might have to make          "Ba-sketti" for the DGD#2.  She loves her pasta.  Haven't heard if I will have the 3rd one yet.  We shall see.  It's a lot with all 3 if Ken is gone.  But the older ones can help some now too. 

Better get to cleaning!! 

Wendy I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing.  ((((hugs)))

Oh that sounds like a nice neighbour Sandy Smile and yes I hear you regarding having to wait for the parcel delivery. Mine was the opposite for a change and it arrived early but luckily the courier left it near my back door so I didn't have to go chasing him lol.

We had thunderstorms last night so I left my computer turned of and unplugged. This morning I woke up to bright blue skies and sunshine.

I too am going to make a big pot of soup this weekend Tara and I will freeze some portions.

Well, my package finally arrived and would you believe after all that it never needed a signature. Never in all the filofaxes I have bought in the past have they not needed a signature. To top it all, on opening it, one of the rings weren't closing properly so I am going to have to send it back for an exchange.

I have just got in all the dates for my hospital visits this November - 2nd, 6th and 9th. The 9th will be the overnight stay for the (hopefully) final proceedure.

Yesterday afternoon I went to the cinema with Aimee to see Victoria & Abdul. I don't usually enjoy the cinema but this time I rather did.

Today is a quick nip to the chemist to pick up my script and opposite that is a large Sue Ryder shop which is a bit of an up market 2nd hand shop. I want to nip in there and take a look at the furniture they might have.

Overcast here, but streets are dry , cool 5c , fall is in full swing . They are getting snow in parts of BC and Alberta I read, happy to be living here and not there  .  California is got terrible fires, folks died , and many many homes burned , how very frightening and sad .
Running errands is on my agenda this afternoon, changed the bedding already , now off to the showers . 

Tara: Ba-Sgetti ... , how well I remember that lol , enjoy your weekend with the girls, and save me some of that soup .

Sandy: glad your parcel finally arrived , and oh yes , I go through all that too, sorry you have to send it back . Sad what a pain . Hope all will turn out well with the upcoming Hospital proceedure in November .  
 
Martha:  I do not like Thunderstorms , glad we hardly ever get one , and if ..... it's very minor .
Enjoy the pot of soup you will make today , save me some .

Have a nice day .everyone .

Hello All,
Sorry, I have not been on but I have not been feeling well well the last two weeks so I come on for a bit but then need to get back to laying down. I thought it was only a cold and sore throat but it is not the flu I don't know what it is. I hope it passes soon because my house looks like something struck it or something. Also, need to get things done outside before the first snow which could be anytime after Halloween. I have a couple of weeks but I want to get it done because last year I was too late and had to wait until Spring or the first thaw and it was a horrible cleanup.

Anyway, how is everyone? I hope all well. Anyway, best get going.

Sandy, how was the move? How are you liking your new flat? I heard tidbits of information but just curious.

Sorry to hear you haven't been well Becky. Hope you feel better soon.

I'm well settled into the flat now thanks. Although there is still much that I need to do to get it exactly as I want it.

Yes, Martha, On one hand I am thrilled that the time has finally come to get into hospital but at the same time it's a real pain in the behind to have to mess around with it all.

Our new post office opens for the first time this afternoon so I am able to nip the package I need to send back along there later to today. I'm also trying to buy the odd bits of shopping locally again each day so that I don't spend so much by ordering on line. I can't carry much back but done on a daily basis it seems to be working.

I went to church yesterday morning again. First time visit to this particular church which I have written about in my journal. Thoroughly enjoyed the service and will be visiting again next week.

Peeing with rain here today but not cold. The sky is full of more too. Very dull and grey.

Dropping in , to see who is around , and what's cooking .  Our weather is overcast and 11c today, but yesterday was a lovely spring like day , everyone enjoyed the walking about in the village  . I picked up some sales items I usually use , plus the regular groceries .  Food prices are sky high now days I find , .....just like everything else , rent is unbelievable  ... a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment on the second floor , is advertised at 1395.00  , who can afford that ?  Shocked

Beckea:  so sorry to hear you are down with something strange .... take good care , the work will have to wait  . I always say, it's the air travel now days that spreads new bugs  around  from country to country .

Sandy:  Good to hear you can pick up your own parcels now at the new little post office . I find them handy , as one can pick up when you are ready , and not wait all day to be brought to your door . But .. sometimes that is the only way .    I buy groceries every day , a few at a time , what ever my little cart holds , and it gets me out for my walk .

Hello everyone! Stopping in to say HEY.

I've been busy making themes on the board ( from base and mixed themes that allow editing) and so has one of my Admin.

I made a huge pan of lasagna last night and thought it would last a few days, but not so. My husband is pigging out on it which is good I would say.

The weather has been gorgeous, brilliant leave colors and sunny in the 60's.

Have a lovely evening.

I love how you have put a quote like that in your signature Becky by using the actual quote feature. I might do that too. I do like my quotes.

I never did get to the post office yesterday.  The weather was awful with no sign of the rain letting up.  So I decided to wait to see if today was going to be any better, and so far, although still very early, it does seem to be so.

The wind blew in the Sahara Desert in the afternoon.  It's always really eerie when that happens as the whole sky and world goes dark yellow.  Best not to go out in that as it's very bad for the ole lungs.

I've been having to figure out how to get too and fro the hospital for my 3 visits the first week in November.  I've sorted out the day/s of my op with Jess taking me and looking after Louie for the day of the op.  That was the worst one to sort as it's a 07:15 arrival - If I come out the same day then Jess will pick me up.  If I have to stay over night Jess will have to drop Louie back at mine the following morning and leave him there as she is going away that day.  So I then have to figure out how to get home, along with hoping I will be released before midday so Louie isn't on his own too long.

Taxies cost £20 each way so I might have to chance taking the bus on my other appointments if either Sarah or Aimee can't volunteer for those.  With taking the bus though one risks the bus either not turning up or being late and then of course one misses the appointed time.  Plus of course not being near a loo for the hour and a half it will take from my house to the hospital by bus is a whopping problem.

So if no more volunteering, and depending on if I can or can't manage bus rides, that week could cost me anything up to £100 in taxis.  I just hope this is all going to be the last of it.  I wont know that until after the op.

I had to have the chap come in yesterday to fix my shower.  It had been messing me about for days by going from boiling hot to freezing cold whilst I was under it.  It was a 5 minute job for him to find the fault with a valve on the water supply and so hopefully when I hop in it in a short while all should be well.

For me this morning it's going to the ATM, post office, chemist, and then quickly drop into the co-op in on the way home.  Hopefully I can get all that done before my bladder starts screaming.  The other day I had to ask to use the loo in a charity shop the other end of the high street before I could start to make my way home.  If I don't dawdle today I should be able to make it.
