Cooler week

My last post mentioned temps in the low 80s during the day, well no more, they have been in the upper 60s, just missing 70F by a hair! Low this morning was 41F. The sun still feels warm and a good place to sit is in the sunny parts. We haven't had any frost or freezes yet and that should happen in about 3-4 weeks.

No news around here. The local papers are full of news regarding our new Spaceport Road Dedication and the flight of Branson's WhiteKnighttwo which buzzed the new Spaceport, still under construction. There were large crowds witnessing all the activities of the day at Upham, NM.

As for us, we are doing fine. Nothing new to report. Had an email from daughter Patsy and she and the family plan to come see us over a weekend near Thanksgiving. It will be great to see them. The date isn't firm yet, but we have no special plans for the holiday, so it doesn't matter.

Hope everyone is enjoying this lovely Fall weather.

life changes

It has been an interesting week. I have all the equipment that I shall need when my chf advances to end stage. I'm not sure, but it is probably already at that point. I have my oxygen and it has helped me sleep much better, which surprised me since it is only at 2 liters. My hospital bed is taking some getting use to as I have had a queen-sized bed to myself for 20 years, and now I have cute little motorchair, a "jazzy" which I also must adjust to; it has a lot of power and wants to run "fast". Also, I have ordered an overbed table to keep the things I need close by.

I don't want my room to look like a "sick room", and I don't think that it does. I could use a larger screen tv, but nobody has everything.

Our weather has been perfect, highs in the low 80s or near 80. lows in the mid to lower 40s. No rain in sight! Really nice breezes and if our leaves had turned, they would be blowing everywhere; but, they are still nice and green and clinging to the trees.

I talked to my son today, and he is coming to visit me for my birthday, which is November 6th. I will be 76 years, lol. Don't know where all those years went, that's for sure. He plans to stay in Tucson with his new family over the holidays and that is fine with me, it is where he needs to be. We are going to keep our holidays as usual with less decorating for Christmas. I enjoy the holiday spirit but we don't need all the work.

We have our three dogs and now two kitties, so we really do have a family here. They all depend on me and floyd making a home for them, and we do so gladly.:) Time for bed, wishing everyone a happy Fall :)
