Throw back Thursday to February 13, 2013

This morning I came back from coffee and sat down in the recliner and went to sleep. I woke up about 10:30 and Ella and I walked up to the rec hall to check the mail. I received a note from the VA reminding me of the appointment on the 21st. I then went online to the VA health net and entered my stats from this morning and answered a questionnaire about my weight and activities.
I then sat back down in the recliner and went to sleep only to awaken with a real need to go to the bathroom. That is how the rest of my day has gone (it is now after 8 p.m.) Recliner to bathroom, to recliner … repeat. I must have picked up some ‘bug’ at the VA the other day. So I guess the good news is … I did get something out of my visit to them the other day. Grin

2020 January 02 Thursday in Liberty Hill, Texas

espite some color in the clouds just before dawn, the sky soon turned the same gray as yesterday’s sky.

e drove into Liberty Hill, hoping that the Over The Hill Gang* would be meeting for lunch, fellowship, and canasta. However, the building was dark and empty.

ince the OTHG were not there. We extended our drive into nearby Georgetown and the Madella Hilliard Neighborhood center for lunch.

here were very few there today. Perhaps people didn’t realize that they were back open after the holidays.

*The Over The Hill Gang is about relationships and staying connected to one another. They break bread together and fellowship together.
Any area senior 50 years or older is invited to join for fellowship and a meal every Thursday at 11:30 a.m. The first meal is free; afterwards, individuals are asked to donate $6 for their meal.

God bless and g’nite

  • Day 89 in our Texas home

2019 October 30 Wednesday

2019 October 30 Wednesday in Liberty Hill, Texas

nother beautiful day of fog and cold rain. It almost seems like upper Midwest weather.

t got down to freezing overnight. And it was dang chilly (41°} at 9 AM. It made a weak attempt to warm up through the fog and rain, but only reached 45° before dropping back down to 40°. Around 7:30 PM the wind picked up to nearly 30 mph. The overnights for the next several days are also supposed to be in the lower 30s. I’ll let the faucets drip tonight just to assure the plastic RV plumbing doesn’t freeze and burst.

his is the Grandies group today, all 12 of us. Ignore the sign that reads Over The Hill Gang. We’ve been using their building since the Cross Tracks Church Fellowship Hall burnt last spring. It works out fine because most of us (maybe all) are members of both. The people in the photos are busy signing Get Well cards to be mailed to sick friends and family. We also mail, Thinking of You, Sorry For Your Loss, Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas, and nearly every card that a greeting card company can make. We then do a roll call to find out what is happening in each other’s lives. We have a devotional and a prayer. Then we play games: canasta, bridge, and dominoes.

f course we stayed to play canasta. Originally there were six who raised their hand to indicate that they wanted play. However, after we had the tables set for six, one person left. So we decided to play a table of four and I would sit out and be score keeper. Bill, Karen, Ann, and Ella played the first hand or two, then Ann bowed out and let me finish the game.

nce home, we turned the fireplace on, cuddled into our recliners,and put a blanket throw over us. It didn’t take long to warm to 70°.

ome time later, I started unloading the truck topper in preparation for installing shelves in the front. However, it began to rain and I retreated to the recliner once again.

worked on posting some devotions and Armchair Sermons. (See links below)

or lunch we had bacon and eggs. We had skipped breakfast, so breakfast for lunch sounded good to us. While I was preparing lunch, I started some meatless stew using the Instapot as a slow cooker. The stew was for supper. I also made some overnight oats for tomorrow’s breakfast.

By the way, I’m not sponsored by any person, company, or organization. I provide links just for clarification out the text.

God bless and g’nite.
