Saturday, September 4, 2004
I was watching golf & doing another puzzle when I needed a break. So starting a letter is doing something different.
This A.M., I picked just about the last of the blueberries. Maybe a large handful yet to ripen. We are enjoying tomatoes from the garden. Also made a pumpkin pie & potatoe salad to go with hamburgers tonite. Also corn on the cob. We'll also have steaks either Sun. or Mon.
Barb went to Jamestown this A.M. -- she needed groceries from Wegman's. She got some nice looking local corn there for 6/1.00. Pretty good price.
Dale had a headache this A.M. Wanted to go to Jamestown this aft. but he took some aspirin that got rid of his headache but left him with a "buzz" feeling, so he decided to sit in the sun & get more tan on his body. It was his Sat A.M. to work but Shults is closed this weekend.
Boy, the Mets sure have taken a dive but they are still my team.
I've been watching the Weather Channel & feel for Fla with another storm Francis on the way. Maybe some folks will think twice before moving to Fla.
Wed. Sept 8
I was in bed at 9 pm last night. Why so early, you wonder. Mon. nite I couldn't get to sleep until early A.M. hours. I did my work including washing the kitchen floor. Also took 3 cat naps (1/2 hr) thru the day. Today I'm well rested but lazy. Worked on my puzzle & just finished while watching Perry Mason. No lost pieces, either. We're having tacos for supper & that is easy. This aft. I made 2 batches of cookies. Choc. chips & a new one with brown sugar, oatmeal & coconut plus the regular ingredients, so I wasn't completely lazy. I sample them twice with coffee.
We're getting rain & the temperatures will be in the 60's. Nice to sleep with a blanket on.
Had a letter from Millie. She had a call from Gen who told Millie "I didn't know Barbara had cancer." It must have been a bad day as she called many times to ask about Barb. I don't see how Gen can be alone nights. Lots of time they walk out & get lost. I hope Gen stays home, & doesn't wander out.
I always read the library's Bookworm. Interesting to read to see what is going on. Sounds like it was an exciting summer for the library.
I had taco ingredients for lunch when you were here, but we ate out so they never got used. Barb & Dale like them & along with a salad it makes an easy meal for me to prepare. I will freeze the leftover meat & it will make a nice & different lunch for Barb & Dale.
Dale talks a lot about Max who has a shop in Frewsburg for repairing cars. Tonite Max stopped by to ask Dale to cut something for him. Dale has said a lot about him -- an endless talker, divorced, a grandfather, is 43, has problems with women. He isn't at all the picture formed in my mind. He is short with dark curly hair & nice looking I pictured an older man -- maybe not too neat & he is the opposite.
Thurs. Sept 9
Kim & Lar were here. No special news. Kim was meeting the "girls" for a nite out. A glass of wine & talk. The others would order more.
We had 4" of rain & some in the basement. More cracks need to be fixed. The ones Dale just fixed worked as no leaks there.. We got a few puddles -- imagine what homes in Fla. have to put up with.
Soon Andy will be 17! Hard to believe.
