Mad at Myself

The phone had rung twice this morning. One was a wrong number when I called it back (I think it might have been the nurse who gives me the B12 shots) but the other was the aide. She was on her way.

brown-turkey-figsMy CIL had been out and about but when he came in, he brought a bag and held it so I could see the contents. It had some figs ‘way down in the bottom. They looked so good! I thought I might have some for breakfast and then I thought I might have some at supper but I forgot both times. GRRRRR!

Cuz put the robe in the bathroom and the shower chair in the tub so we were all ready to go when the aide got here. She took my vitals and tried to help me figure out the latest word that had stumped me.

The shower went well. She wants to get a scalp scrubber/massager like mine and wanted to know where I bought it. Amazon, of course. Then she wanted to know about my bathrobe. Same place. Of course.

As promised, she trimmed my toenails and they look so much better. She’d already dried my hair. I get the spa treatment when she’s here.

After she left, it was time for breakfast. Cuz had gotten some strawberries at the used food store that are decent for being out of season berries. She sweetened them and I mixed my plain coconut yogurt with them. It was good but I like the blackberry or peach jam with it better.

Even though the bed had been changed last Thursday, Cuz stripped it and changed it again. I asked her if she’d change it if the aide came again this week and she said she would. “What if she came every day?” “Then you’d keep me pretty busy!”

After I had my devotions, I watched some TV I’d recorded (of course) and played some 4 Pics. Cuz was out in the garage “piddling” so I didn’t get any help from her. And I’ve reached the last level and am stuck on the fourth word, of all things. The first three were really easy. The first one was dog. Now, I’ve played the first fifty words and not missed any since they are all repeats.

I keep forgetting to ask Cuz about my Breathe Right strips. I hope I have them here. There are times when I could definitely use them. I’ve used my Ayr Saline Nasal Gel to thoroughly coat the insides of my nostrils. I wish they’d heal but I guess they don’t have much of a chance.

Cuz went out to the garden this afternoon and picked a peck of peppers. I was going to say picked a peck of pickled peppers but they aren’t pickled. Tonight, my CIL put them through the food processor and they’ll be frozen in little plastic bags so they can be used in soups and stews this winter.

Winter IS on its way though the temperatures are still pretty warm for fall. The high today was 82. Cuz is winterizing the pool and hot tub. She was tempted to go in the pool but said the water is too cold so I guess the nighttime temperatures have had an effect.

That’s about it for today. Good night, all!

    If I hadn’t already thought so, I’m beginning to think there is nothing that your Cuz cannot do!
