Of course, I've been waiting for summer for a long time. It's finally arrived in full force. I was able to get a doctor's appt. yesterday. I have strep throat and am taking Biaxin. Not the best thing in the world but the Lord knows best. I would never have taken days off on my own free will. Funny, how just when I get sick legitimately summer arrives. It was raining when I left. When I got home from the doctor and pharmacy, the sun was out beautifully. LOL...I need to rest and I sure can rest floating in my pool. I have my doctor's note in hand for Monday. My new boss was actually glad I wasn't at work because there is so much strep and other illnesses floating around. Took a huge load off of my mind.
I took David's Sunshine Colorado Notes advice, sans David. I opened a bottle of Penn Dark and floated around in the pool and discussed world issues with myself.
Megan left Fla. last night and should be home late this afternoon safely, I pray. But Lord have mercy, I miss her but she is one super ball of stubborn energy. She didn't get much sun because it rained so much. She loves heat and sun like me so she is not too thrilled that she was searching for summer but didn't find it.
The one thing I'm not thrilled with is my family doctor back in Pittsburgh is now in Fla. He opened a practice there. I don't like the policies of those that took over. You make sick appts. and follow-up appts. for meds seperately. I travel 40 miles one way to get there. They expect me to go back today for my blood pressure meds check up. I have no refills. I'm calling to try and reschedule because the trip is a beast when you don't feel well.
I will go into this later but entering my old "hood" stirs up sooooo many memories. I lived there 21 years. LOL...I had to go right by my old house and was tempted to stop in and say "Hi" to my ex...NOT.
I took a couple pics of my pool. The deck is atrocious. I haven't been able to stain it this year because it hasn't been dry enough. The water is still not quite clear but looks better than it has since I opened it. It's small....16 ft around. My kids used to call it the large "hot tub." I had considered putting in a large rectangle a few years ago but am glad I didn't because the kids are grown, and it's plenty large enough for me to float in.
Now can you believe I actually fit between the board when I fell through the opened one?
There's my lean-to garage in need of a good painting plus a swift wind to blow it over. My whole deck should be the same color as the back fencing. Oh well, maybe this weekend I'll get some of it stained while I'm out there. Plus some weed whacking...yikes, they are enormous this year.
My pond area is slowly getting cleaned up. If I get it looking half decent, I'll put some pics up this weekend.
Has anyone else been finding AOL's file manager to be a pain in the butt. When I save graphics and tags, it throws them God knows where in the midst of all my stuff...then I have to spend an endless amount of time searching for it. It used to do it occasionally but for the past few days is doing it with everything. I'm using Photobucket now coz I'm super disgusted. I don't have time to search 900 and some uploaded items for one thing.
I'm hoping to get some journal hopping done today. I didn't spend much time on here yesterday.
