I for on the computer to check the weather...instead of checking my phone.  Imagine my surprise when this popped up.  It even has the right date and everything.  But that is not what cracked me up.

I got my kindle and went outside to read, and had nor more than sat down till the ice cream van was coming through the neighborhood.  He goes so fast, kids do not have time to get out to get anything.  But anyway, guess what song he was playing?

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.  I

 laughed till I cried.  I told my daughter how appropriate.  Sometimes simple things like that strike me so funny, and at other times not so much.  But add to that my daughter was trying a new sprinkler, and Copper has to help test it out.  So was laughing at him, too.  I need to try to get a video of that.

It is actually 91° it is warm.

A short little post...

The is a view at Eagle Creek Nursery...daughter and I picked up Lorelei and we went there and looked at shrubs and trees on Wednesday.  It was so hot and muggy it was sort of hard to fully enjoy it.  But still, I would go back again in a heartbeat. 

Do you have a term or phrase you use a lot when you are tired...I have several.  I won't bore you with them but I am tired.  I was to be at daughter's house to let in delivery people at 9:30 this morn.  That is not early.  However, almost any time I have to do something a bit out of my routine, I either wake early--this morning, was right at 4:00 a.m. and did not go back to sleep.  Thankfully I had gone to bed at 11:30...

I either do that, or I wake up every hour...I have no idea why I do that.  But the delivery guys came shortly after 9:30 so did not have to sit and wait, and I got to run on and do my walmart shopping.  Then home...put things away, go get Copper and take him out.  Oh, my, you should have seen him...he could not leave me alone because he had to sniff and sniff and sniff because I had held Rosie and played with Gus...I am sure he knew where I had been.

New kid on the block

 Another daylily is blooming and it is totally gorgeous.  It makes my heart sing when I go out and look at it.


The trip to the dermatologist was so easy.  I was really dreading the drive.  I did have to pause once because a new power line pole was being put in.  But the road that said it had been closed the day before...I could see no place where work had been done.  Maybe it was utility work.  

In town it had said this one highway was down to one lane.  Which I thought meant flagmen. went from 4 lanes down to two lanes, and it had meant just one lane going each way.  It can be a rather busy place sometimes, and I was really dreading it if it were a flagman.  

So I was there early, the girl that registers me said I might be waiting a while.  (I was at least half an hour early)  But i had rather be there early as to wait and have to rush to try to get there.  So I no more than sat down till I was called back.  I figured that I would get back there and have to wait.

Wrong dr. came in and the places I was concerned about she froze them.  She doesn't think they are anything, but if they come back, call and come in again. During this she told me it was her last day...she is quitting/retiring till she can babysit her granddaughter.  She had wanted to quit last year, but could not find someone to take over the practice and she did not want to leave us, her patients, without anyone.  As it is it is a nurse practitioner and and a Physicians asst.  

She and her husband have an apt in New Jersey, their granddaughter goes to preschool a couple hours a couple days a week, they go get her and then babysit her the rest of the week.  She was so happy -- it was contagious.  I will really miss her, but oh, her granddaughter is only little once.  I would not give up the time I had with Lorelei when she was a baby for any amount of money...


It poured the rain this morning...and is overcast again.  but we did have a bit of sun at one point.  I have done a couple loads of laundry, vacuumed upstairs, trying to declutter more stuff from out room.  I just don't have a lot left to get rid of.  

I wish there was a way to insert short videos...I will see if I can leave a link.  Apparently THIS horse THIS horse loves his/her farrier.  Even Roger found it funny.  It cracks me up.
