Shopping ~ Sleeping Bruiser ~ Miss Bonnie ~ Barry Keith ~ Betty ~ Sunset ~ Pecan Cookies


Good 41º clear sunny morning. 

Yesterday the topper was 83º. Nice with a breeze most of the day. Great to have windows and doors open for a change!


Yesterday I was going to go to the LE/Fire luncheon, but was feeling crummy, so stayed home. Ate light, drank tea, and rested. Feeling better!


Monday I had done some shopping... first Costco, for  a couple things I wanted and some Brian wanted were on sale. They had these witches to buy for your Halloween decorations that talked and cackled.
Then to 7 Oaks Farm in Central Point..
and got a beautiful cantaloupe  (soooooooooo good and sweet!!), some of their fresh corn right from the field, and a couple egg plants, and 2 sunflowers!



Then to Brian's office to drop off his loot and to the lab at the hospital for my blood test. Then home! Unloaded the car and sat in my chair, with the Bruiser on my lap snoozing!

Two special birthdays today... friend, Miss Bonnie Siebert. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Bonnie!!! (Celebrating on the weekend with family...)

And friend Barry Keith is celebrating today. He and his Dawna came from Texas to the Pomona Gun Show and Jerry and I became friends with them. Even went to Texas once to visit them!

A fav actress of mine.





Had a call from my niece, Maryann, who told me about my sister Betty's health problem. She is not well. This is very sad. She is 17 years older than me.
Later since I was still feeling puney I made some rice (light and easy to digest), a mixture of brown and white rice, heated a chicken thigh, and some artichoke bottoms. Topped the rice with them. Tummy was happy... had a chat with Tucker and wished him HAPPY BIRTHDAY. We'll do presents later.  Snuggy in my chair and TV. Then I noticed the sunset...

Looking west towards Grants Pass:




All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
