Good Morning!

Amolucia, I do have trouble opening those packages and usually just use scissors.  My big issue is they never reseal.  I'll grad it days later to find it open.  They are the Devil's work.  

Work yesterday was busy but okay.  Census is low with only 7 patients.  I hope they get an admission or two and we keep our tech.  With 7 we don't get a get a tech.  Then again it's one of the lazy techs, so really I'm screwed no matter what.

Off Monday and for a few days to regroup and reset my mind and attitude.  Dealing with some minor self-disappointments which I won't get into but need to work on.  

Overslept this morning by 23 minutes.  Forgot to turn the alarm on.  Again.  I do tend to make the same mistakes over and over again.  😂

Morning-

Weather was glorious yesterday after a very cool start.  We took a short ride down to Newport, RI to see if the surf was high after the remnants of Dorian.  It was a little rough, but nothing major.  We did the Cliff Walk, which is an almost 4 mile trail set up on the cliffs by the ocean.  It goes past several of the old Newport mansions from the Gilded Age.  Most of it is paved, but there are a few sections where you have to scramble over rocks.  I got hit by a rogue wave that came over one the sections that is a little lower down.  I was drenched, but the sun was shining, so I didn't care.  We later went into town to have oysters by the water, and then some gelato.  Today we are invited to go sailing with a friend of Fiance's.  We will stay in the harbor, as their boat is small and there are still high surf advisories.  I will take some Dramamine before we go.  DD made it back to the mainland last night, as ferries started running again around noon.

Tweety-I hope today goes well, whether you have a tech or not.  I hope all is ok with you.

Hope all enjoy their Sunday!

Morning Tweety and BC

Productive day yesterday.  Got laundry and cooking done, including cooking for the church potluck today.  Worked on cross stich some more, and chose a needlepoint project to do once I'm done with the cross stitch.  Skipped Svengoolie as I've seen it before.  And met dad for lunch

Today we have our kick off Sunday, so the choir is meeting early to practice a familiar piece.  We're not starting regular practice again until October and then it will be with our temporary organist.  Not sure if I'll do another choir season, but I'll hold off on a final decision until October

Wont' be able to stay for the potluck.  J and I orginally were going to see a movie but we couldn't find one we liked so we're going to try a new restaurant instead

Got fairly warm yesterday, will be cooler today with rain in the morning

Good morning, I'll be leaving shortly for another home visit. At least I am getting overtime to do the visit. It takes me about an hour (20 min. there, 20 min for visit and documentation, 20 minutes home) but I get paid a minimum of 2 hours of time and a half. Dh and I may go play mini golf, but it looks like rain. We had a booming thunderstorm last night, which is unusual in this area. When we lived in Idaho they happened every night in the summer and I rather enjoy the show. It did rain some, but not a lot. 

I use kitchen scissors all the time to open things. I don't have a lot of grip strength and I like a nice, clean edge on things. And yeah, those "reclosable packages" are evil.  I like amo's idea about limiting how many supplies Nannie has to apply/don. I should think all that padding would make it difficult and uncomfortable to walk. 

Hang in there Tweety. I have been feeling rather low myself lately. But to quote Stuart Smiley, "we're good enough, we're smart enough, and doggone, people like us!" And you can always vent to us, right crew?

Tweety, Wasn't there a Broadway show ( may be you aren't OLD enough to remember!) called "With Six You Get Eggroll" ? Yeah there was.

I have trouble peeling off the foil lids on: dog food, yogurts, Nannie's puddings and fruit cups....and yeah, scissors are mandatory for boxed stuff with the impenetrable bags inside. I used to have strong fingers and hands, but as I am fond of saying to Nannie and hubby: "Used to" is now loooong past. And a LOT of OTC meds containers are what I always refer to as "Nurse- Proof".

I sat down and started to post this 4 or 5 hours ago; can't remember why I put it aside --- perhaps Ozzie was wanting to step outside for a few moments. Then I s'pose I got distracted...

BCg, I only like 'ersters' when they're fried. I hope they got along okay with the Dramamine!

Joe, Sounds like a nice weekend you've had, and a busy one. Glad you've taken to the needlework. All I can do is mend a hemline to function as it should, or ripped armpit, but neither would bear close inspection;  they are not beautiful stitches but at least they are sufficient ones. And I can sew on a button so it will never, ever DARE to fall off again. That's the extent of my needlework!

Ozzie is yelling at me again! He's already done his business and watered the corner of the neighbor's fence, so I don't know what the harassment is about. AH! Saved by my hubby! He's taken Ozzie up in his lap and is "scratchin' his bohunkess",  ( said with accent on the 'bo') which makes Ozzie quite happy.

Nannie is in the mood to run-down her sister-in-law's family and sayin' what SHE'D do if that niece had ....... blah-blah-blah. And segueing into past neighbors and all that crap. *rolling my eyes and sighing* Tedious, or as it is said here, "teejus'".

Welp, here is something I think is kind of, I dunno if it's sad or weird or what, but it IS singularly unusual....I have been sitting here watching a PBS channel, with Ken Burns' special on the history of country music; not the whole documentary, but bits and pieces, plus various artist's playing and singing the songs and types of country music from early in the last century to the current day.

ANYWAY, it's been on for an hour now, and I am THE ONLY person  in this room tapping my feet and/or moving my head. How can someone listen to music and songs and not at least, at LEAST tap a finger or something?!!!!

I've been tapping my feet, got up and danced. Now Roseanne Cash is singing one of my favorite Johnny Cash songs he wrote about breaking up with her Mom. 

Vince Gill sang "I Will Always Love You" by Dolly Parton and possibly the best love song written. He did well. I was a bit worried he would mess it up and I'd never heard a man sing it before.

 I'm excited to enjoy the documentary starting a week from tonight.

Vince Gill is blessed with such an ability to sing, he hits the notes pure  and true. When my hubby's best friend died, the guy's nephew sang (at his funeral) Go High Up On the Mountain....I know that's probably not the right title...but it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. The nephew was no Vince Gill, but he did justice to one of his Uncle's favorite songs.

Thank you Stars!

I love to hear Allison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs too.
