The missus fell just before I got up this morning and has been on the warpath all day. She's falling more often these days, but it's usually on the carpet, thank goodness. I've noticed I've felt a little unsteady a couple times lately, myself; I don't know WHAT that's about. Of course, for some time, I've felt dizzy when I look up. Getting old is no fun.
We went to Chinamart again today, I to get Mom's groceries, the missus to pick up a few things that she didn't get yesterday. They still hadn't gotten any shoe laces in. That's two weeks now. They didn't have any of the little peppermint lozenges Mom wanted, either, except in sugarless.
The missus and I were talking the other day about how many years it's been since we saw a chocolate hen on a nest for Easter. All we see these days are chocolate rabbits.
A couple weeks ago our Chinamart had a little two-pot stainless cook set for $5, and only had one set left, but I didn't have any money on me. I checked yesterday, but they were out. Perhaps they're closing them out. Today, at the store across town, they had them for $10. Fearing they WERE discontinuing them, I went ahead and got a set. Coleman has a nicer set, but it's also $25. The missus doesn't want me using her pots and pans, so I'm accumulating my own. I figure that stainless can be used on the stove, a rocket stove or a campfire. Besides, things like sassafras tea can really mess up a good pot or pan. I've got some old cast iron skillets, griddles and a stew pot in the basement, if I ever need them, plus a caldron.
I was hoping to putter around outside for a little while after my nap this afternoon, but the missus wanted to go for a ride. When we got back, I told her that I was going to walk around the yard a little, so she went with me. Even with me holding her hand, she was a little unsteady on on the uneven turf of our country lawn and wanted us to return by way of the gravel drive, since it was more level. I was looking for a place to transplant a little walnut tree that came up in the middle of the log road by the house and believe that I found the spot.
Sunday evenings are bad for TV here, as what the missus likes, I don't. So, while she watches the perverted Mormon polygamists, I try to stay busy on the computer - not always an easy thing to do.
Due to “traveling,” I only got one water pill taken today, and it was ridiculously late. There for a while, I was hitting the little room every 15 minutes, but it's finally eased off a little, thank goodness.
It sounds like the missus might be watching a western now, maybe I'd better go see. Hope y'all had a good day! Copyright 2018-
