Surprise, Suprise !!!!!

Yes all you lucky people I am back. I am VERY sick. I have bronchitas. Guess that means a trip to the Doctor. You know when you are sick you start to feel a little depressed? Well that is how I am today.
Garrett is at the fairplex. He is taking his test. He wasn't too happy about yesterday. He was optimistic about one part of yesterdays test, but not the other part. I told him to just wait and see, that he probably did great. He is a worrier.
It rained all night on the house and its paint job. It don't look like it hurt it. The still have a couple more days of painting left.
I love you all, Grams

It was a beautiful day in California today. Fall is in the air, altough it is supposed to be 95 Sunday with Santa Ana winds. That means fire danger. I have to do some yard work tomorrow.
Rick finally fixed my silverware drawer today. It feels so nice to have it back in, instead of on my counter top. Getting him to do things is very hard indeed. He does a good job when you can get him to do it.
Sis I hope you had a wonderful day. Now you and your brother are the same age for two weeks. I can't believe I got pregnant again after only 2 1/2 months !!!!!!!! Let me tell you, those were some very hard dark months. I would never recommend it for anyone.
Love to all, Grams

Yesterday was dark, overcast, and rained all day. Today was sunny, but chilly. It is supposed to be 95 Saturday. Go figure !! I have decided on the painter to paint my house. I have to get an estimate on fixing the large facia board on the front of the house, because it is rotted through and through. There is always something it seems. Tomorrow is my beautiful daughter's birthday. I hope it is a great day. Love and kisses everyone !!!!!!!

Last week we were roasting, and today it was overcast, rainy, and cool enough for a jacket. Go figure !!!!!! In all the years I have lived in California this is the strangest weather Ive seen.
I cleaned both bathrooms from top to bottom. That should last about 10 minutes with Garrett and Rick. I made chicken soup. It was just a soup kind of day. It was very good if I do say so myself.
I stopped at one of my neighbor's houses and asked him if he was happy with the painter that had painted the outside of his house. He said he was very satisfied with the job he did. I called him for an estimate. He will be out tomorrow at 4 pm. I have to call a couple more.
I have a small brain so that is all I have on it for now. Peace and love, Grams

I went to the store this morning. It was thundering and lightening when I left the house and soooo humid, it was miserable. while at the store it got worse. I got to the check out line and the store went black. I had to wait about 15 minutes for the lights to come back on so I could check out. When I got outside it was raining so hard I couldn't go to my car, so I had to wait another 15 minutes for the rain to let up. I swear it feels like we have moved to Florida. Right now it is getting all dark outside again, like it is going to start again. Thats my story and I am sticking to it, Grams

Oh my goodness it has been soooooo hot here the last few days. Monday was 113 in Los Angeles and 110 out here. Today was only 90 but it is so humid it feels like 110. It is supposed to slowly start getting cooler. I certainly hope so. The nights have been hot too. That is very unusual for Calif. It usually always cools off at night. It makes you feel like you are in the south somewhere.
Garrett has an appointment soon to go over his test results with his Doctor. Something in his liver is very high. I don't know what they will do to treat it. I hope it is easily taken care of.
I have to start calling people out for estimates on getting the outside of my house painted. I want it to be the color of coffee with a little cream in it, and the trim is going to be white.
That is all for now. It is too hot to think anyway. Love to all. Grams

They finished my doors and windows today about 3:30pm. I was doing the walk through before paying the man and they had forgotton to shut the door that goes out to the covered patio. Barney got scared and flew out onto the back yard. I picked him up and he flew into the neighbors yard. They were not home so I ran in their back yard. I picked him up and he flew into the canal. By this time I am crying and he is crying, because he isn't used to being out. I kept talking to him. The man went and got 2 ladders. He put one on my side of the fence and one in the canal. He climbed over and held the ladder for me while I climbed over. I ran to Barney and by this time he was exhausted and came right to me. I picked him up and wrapped a rag around him so he couldn't fly away again. We climbed back over the ladder and ran into the house. I can't believe I got him back. The crows were flying all around and I was scared to death they would kill him. I was praying the whole time. Thank goodness Rick and I had just trimmed his nails and clipped his wings last week. He could only fly short distances. If he had fallen into the canal, I never would have gotten him. Naturally all the stress and excitement put me into fibulation. That is it for now, love to all, Grams
