I have small wildflowers popping up all around the yard - yellow, lavendar and white are the colors. It may rain this morning so I have to wait till it either drys out or doesn't rain. Then I can mow this afternoon.
My energy is returning more every day. Yesterday I cleaned Chances cage and moved it closer to the window looking downhill. He can see the birds flying about. He is making newer sounds such as singing, whistling and sounds I have never heard him make before. He is still letting me rub his eyelids, head, ear holes, beck and what I can reach of his neck and top and back of his head.
I removed most of his chewed up poles and put in some new ones and rearranged his swing and dangling toys to allow him more room. He can now watch me cook, do the dishes and overall mess around in the kitchen.
My radio is now on the bar by his cage but not next to Chances cage. He appears to like to sing with some of the songs or music. I have Jazz on or Classical which also includes Opera.
Ok big news here financially. The kids took care of the taxes... and Boy set up an Escrow for the taxes. I am also putting in money so we will have more then enough to pay the taxes every year. I had to tell him he had to make the finale payment no later then 2/28. For on 3/1 the taxes go up. He made it Hurrah!
This past year has been a wallet breaker. I have been drowing in paperwork from every state & federal and medical agency that you canimagine. I think I am finaly caught up. I think!!!
My drs appointment is on the 6th and I have to make sure I actually have a ride to and from. The last 3 appointments were disasters because the service was late then didn't pick me up to take me home. Then never picked me up so that appt was cancelled and the last one I had to ask one of the women from the Civic Center to take me and another to take me home.
The Vultures were out in force yesterday but only a couple are in the sky this morning. The sky is gray still. The humidity is high 80% when I woke up. I finaly uncovered the AC unit in my bedroom and have it on air. Plus my ceiling fan is on and a smaller desk fan is atop my book case stand above the TV is going as well. There is no circulation in this house. I also have my bathroom _ that faces the backyard so that the air can flow into my bedroom.
I have the broken Stand alone AC fan on as well. And a fan in the dining room and in the kitchen. Those rooms are all one giant room. Even with the kitchen _ circulation from that is rare as it faces down hill at my neighbors house. There can be a wind blowing in the driveway and backyard but nothing in the side looking out the kitchen window.
I am proud of how much work I have been able to get back to ship shape condition. But once I have brought the house to looking good the next project will be to move the furniture to clean underneath everything. Not lookin forward to that at all.
I swear I would love to take the Leaf blower and just walk from room to room till everything from fur - from mostly Soli and Kitty - and all their toys and stuff they have tucked away under beds, etc. are blown out the front or back door.
I am proud of my self that I have managed to stay on top of the dishes and cooking. I have to dust almost every day and there has not been any rain of quantity. Thankfully my neighbors let me do laundry once every other week.
I have taken up repairing items that need sewing for example I have a huge King sized quilt that I cut in half. It was so big in dragged on the floor when I put it on my queen sized bed.
I have had so many projects to complete for DD - A photo album I have finally had time to start putting together for her. Her F parents have opted to buy her an inexpensive cell phone. There will be lots of restrictions to who she can call.
She needs a Starbucks card and one for Taco Bell. Part of her program is she can buy lunch twice a week and if her behavior is good she can go to Starbucks for a small coffee with caramel in it for flavoring.
Her health worries the heck out of me. I had hoped to go back to see her and maybe take her on a train trip to and from some place close by. My health has been much better lately so I am praying I can take the train to LA then home again. Will start rebuilding my "daughter" fund. DD is not healthy at all. It breaks my heart!
I have gone back to playing dominos at the Civic center. The women members, and others I play with, gather up clothes they no longer wear and pass the box around so who ever wants to take something can... and if they can add to the box and pass it on. I am last person to get the box and have taken a few items then added three times the amount I took. I've lost alot of weight. I am passing the box to DDIL to go through and send what she wants to the Phillipines and give the rest to Goodwill.
I am considering joining the Civic Center though until I have a few more issues resolved can't eat at the dinners. I have taken up a new meal program for Diabetics. So far so good. Finally I am gaining weight. Hurrah!! Now to not gain too much! 8-)
I will be buying a new scale this coming week. I was really not well due to the neck pain issue since Feb 6 2021.
Being able to order free Lidocanine Patches at 4% is a blessing. I am hoping my Dr will put in a prescription for 5% which I can get through CVS. Humana orders take up to 2 or more weeks to arrive. CVS ships to me in less then 2 days.
I should mention that Charlie is doing really well. He is jumping on to the bed when he wants to otherwise he curls up in his upholstered chair. Or if it is warm he sleeps on the floor.
Well I think this way to long a post. Sorry for venting.
Hope everyone is well. Take care of yourself.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
