Miscellaneous musings will make up the fare of tonight's journal entry. That's what happens when nothing happens--so here we go--
--It was pretty cold when I awoke this morning, but the day warmed up nicely, and the rain stayed away. I took a quick trip into town around noon so I could run a couple of errands, and, while I was there, I decided to get a Subway sandwich for lunch--not great, but decent enough.
--Yesterday, I cooked a couple of bags of the green beans we got from the garden, and we had some left for today. I sort of forgot about them, though, and decided instead to cook some red beans tonight. Since I'll be in Lockport for a couple of days, that would provide a couple of meals for Sid to have while I am gone. I made sure to have enough rice left over as well, so he's taken care of until I get back. (The beans were pretty good, I must say.)
--At some point tomorrow morning, I'll be leaving for Lockport. Randi's appointment is around 1:30 tomorrow afternoon, so I should get there in plenty enough time to unpack my stuff and take her there with lots of time to spare. This is a follow-up visit, so it shouldn't take too long.
--On Friday, at 8:05am, I'll be at CIS in Raceland getting my repeat blood work done. Time permitting, Randi and I will probably have breakfast at Blackie's before taking Mom to her appointment scheduled for 10:30am. This, too, is a follow-up visit, but they usually take several tests at those appointments to check the status of her eyes w/re the age-related macular degeneration. I don't really expect good news, because Mom's eyes have been getting worse rather steadily. Of course, I'm not the doctor, but we'll just have to see what's going on in there.
--If plans go according to schedule, Sandie will meet us there for Mom's appointment. Beyond that, we have no other specific plans. Randi and I will be returning here at some point during the afternoon, and I don't usually like to leave too late. There is a slight possibility that I may stay over one extra night to see Channie on her 3rd birthday. Yes! She and Jack are reaching their 3rd birthdays already--can't believe it! (Jack will be three on March 1.)
--Well, that's it for tonight. As you can see, I can continue to talk about all kinds of stuff for a long time. Sandie said she had nothing to write about, too, but she managed a fairly long entry (which she said she would do). Just as a little aside, I can tell you that Sandie has been facilitating some Bible lessons for her crochet group, using WOMEN of the BIBLE as the topic. I haven't read ALL of them, but I have read quite a few, and Sandie is doing a great job. Though we no longer share the same faith, many of our beliefs are the same still, and I see in her a woman of strong faith and character, like so many of the women she has been writing about. Way to go, Sandie! Love ya!
Have a great evening and a wonderful tomorrow. Please say prayers for a safe trip and good news at all the doctors' appointments.
HEARTFELT BLESSINGS: "He conquers who endures." --Persius
NOTE: Sandie and I always joke about having "plans" because they usually change, no matter how much we plan. We usually write the word like this: p****--knowing that things will probably be different from what we might have intended. When that happens, we should "tie a knot and hang on"--we will accomplish what we want to accomplish--over, under, through any snags along the way. Dreams become our plans; dreams only become real when we decide NOT to let go, NOT to settle for less than we want. Always be willing to hang on to your dreams--then, your p**** will become REALITY.
