Slow Saturday

Well, my new air conditioning system will be installed on Tuesday.  They have lent me a portable unit until then.  It has helped me so much.  At least I can stop from what I am doing and go into the cool room.

I am still working on the kitchen.  So many pots and pans.  I think Gary must have wanted to cook for the whole county.  He loved his kitchen things.  So I am sorting and putting my island back together.

Gracie has really settled in.  She is still a little shy, but becoming more animated as time goes on. She is such good company for me.

Tried to get back to my book last night.  Just can’t seem to really concentrate right now.  I am sure that will change as time goes on.

When Sue was here we ran to Wilmington and did a little shopping.  I picked up a couple of cute patterns to make Isabella some clothes.  I can’t wait to get sewing.

Enjoy your day.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming

A few days after Gary passed away, my son in law Joe’s grandmother passed away.  He had to head to Pennsylvania.  His father had no one else to lean on.  He felt so bad about missing Gary’s Life Celebration on the 6th, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Two days before Gary passed away, a good friend of ours passed away.

We had his celebration at the Railroad Museum in Wilmington.  He loved trains and collected model trains.  It was the perfect place.  I was floored to see his brothers and wives and his mom and sister walk into the museum.  We are having a memorial in PA in October, so I thought they would not come down.  It was a wonderful surprise.  Samantha just took over and planned the whole thing.

I got a message from my cousin in California that her husband passed away on the 10th.

Monday I turned 65.  It was the first birthday in 43 years that I celebrated my birthday without Gary.
For my birthday I adopted the sweetest little dog.  I named her Gracie.  She is the first female dog I have had.  She was spayed yesterday and I picked her up late in the afternoon.  Gracie is a Cairn Terrier Mix and weighs 8.5 pounds.  Gracie is setteling in nicely.

Gracie September 13, 2016

My good friend Sue was here and took me out to dinner.  We had some Calabash Seafood.  We ate way too much, but there are no calories on your birthday.  🙂

We got home about 7:30 on Monday night and I noticed that my air conditioner unit was running and running with no air coming out of the vents.  You guessed it.  The unit is shot.  The guy was here today and he just shook his head and said I hate to give you bad news but……So a new unit is about 7 grand.  You can believe I have had a few conversations with Gary over this.

I haven’t done much reading the past couple of weeks.  I hope to get back into that soon.  I am also looking forward to getting back to quilting.  My grand kids want new quilts.

Have a good one.
