The Simple Woman's Daybook
November 30, 2009
Outside my window today it was sunshiny one minute and cloudy the next. I think this afternoon I saw flurries but they came and went so fast that I am not sure.
I am thankful to my husband's doctor. We went in today to see the doctor. My husband has been having some age related issues and I was getting quite concerned. He was given a new medication and taken off of another one. The doctor didn't seem as concerned as I was by some of the problems, I am hoping that is a good thing. But all in all I feel relief. At least someone now knows what is going on with my husband.
I am thinking that I am glad Christmas is still 3 weeks away. I am behind schedule. I have not baked anything. I have not put up one decoration. BUT I am all through shopping. So maybe it's not all bed.
I am wearing navy blue velvet lounge pants, lilac colored sweatshirt, socks and slippers. Comfy clothes.
I am remembering that I didn't set anything out to wear tomorrow and my husband is already in bed. Oh dear.
I am going to get my haircut and my eyebrows waxed tomorrow. After that I am picking up two Christmas hams and then off to Wal-Mart.
I am currently reading don't laugh...it is called "Rush to Judgment" by Mark Lane. It is a book about the Warren Commission. Mark Lane maintains that they didn't take into account all of the relevant facts in deciding about the assassination of President Kennedy. I am not a conspiracy theorist but this topic has always fascinated me as have the Kennedy family.
I am hoping of a white Christmas, no wait that's dreaming, hmmm hoping? Nope, I am hoping for a white Christmas. Just a little dusting is all. No big blizzard, not even 2 inches, just enough to make the woods look beautiful.
On my mind is my husband. I guess because he was just at the doctor and I keep going over the appointment in my mind. By tomorrow morning when he wakes up he won't have a memory of the appointment. He takes such heavy tranquilizers to get out of the house that they often leave him without a clue. I wish it were different for him. It is nice to him softly snoring though. He has had so many sleep issues lately that even a drug induced sleep is better than none.
I am learning that there are so many blogs available and not enough time to read them all. I got into blogging as a way to satisfy a creative urge in me. I have since discovered a whole new universe.
I am noticing that eating dinner alone is not as much fun as eating with my companion. He was sleeping at dinner time. I have his keeping warm in the oven but think I should take it out and put it away. There was wasn't any conversation over my food,no comments on what was on TV, no laughter, and no one to thank me for a good meal.
I am pondering these words from Psalm 150... Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.
From the kitchen came baked chicken, dressing, and green beans for dinner. My husband is eating his now.
Around the house is the smell of baked chicken because his just came out of the oven.
One of my favorite things is talking on the phone to friends I don't get to see very often.
From my picture journal this was taken last year. I had to take it through the screen that is why it looks out of focus. It is two pilliated woodpeckers.
