Come on in where it is cool. It has been so hot here in Texas! You say, "How hot is it?"
laying very much
And here is me when I get home in the evening.....
That's why I think we'll have some iced coffee today.
Doesn't that look refreshing! I found this image and a yummy recipe by Domestic Goddess on Food.com. Very similar to how I make mine. I use fresh brewed coffee so I can use my Folgers's Half Caff. I switched to it a couple of years ago, so I could have my caffeine without over indulging.
Let's take our drinks outside under the shade of the pecan tree. There's a sweet little breeze blowing this morning.
So, to the reason I have been so absent on Saturdays. Well, to tell the truth, for the first couple of weeks in July, I was just blown away and in shock from the things I was seeing and hearing online.
Then I spent a Saturday taking Hannah shopping. She made out like a bandit! My girl is practical. We went to Ross's and she found five adorable new tops there. Also picked up a new swimsuit top to go with her swim shorts. Then we stopped by a Goodwill store that we know gets a lot of high end, gently used merchandise and she picked up three new pairs of jeans. New wardrobe: $95 A day with Hannah: priceless.
That very next day, I ended up taking Pete to the hospital after church. Severe stabbing chest pains and some shortness of breath and a severe headache on his right side. He had also been extremely dizzy and having some of his "blind spells", too. They kept him two days. Once again, his heart checked out all okay. They checked his arteries this time, as he has had these symptoms recurrently for years. The cardiologist said his arteries were lovely. So, he came home, still hurting and with a two week recovery time from the procedure.
While we are all very thankful and grateful his heart keeps checking out good considering all of the family history, we are stumped as to what to do about the recurring chest pain. He is supposed to have sinus surgery in the near future to fix a deviated septum and rinse out all the crud in his sinus cavities. We are so hoping that will solve most of the headaches, dizziness and blind spells.
I myself, have fought off a summer cold and recently been having issues with my blood pressure. Some days I've just preferred to sleep in and some I just felt too dreadful to sit and stare at a computer screen. Looks like a visit to my doctor is in order in the very near future.
My son has been home from South Texas and I've enjoyed spending some time with him and his whole little family. They are very near closing on a piece of land and a home up here in the woods, not too far from us. I'm very proud and happy for them. Glad they are getting off the side of that little highway they live on.
Well, I've also been very lapse in visiting others in these past few weeks, so forgive me if I go in and get ready to start catching up. You're welcome to enjoy the quiet as long as you like.
