Auburndale, FL (H 85 L 75) CHAT ROOM 8:30pm EST
All week we've been collecting things for hurricanes. We had a "Connections Meeting" at hospice once a month and the topic this month was what to pack. There's even a battery pack with D batteries and paperclips to have ready to charge your phones. We ordered this little lamp that has five brightness levels that will be real handy it's a hurricane lamp without a flame. It's quite bright and you can hang it upside down to shine up a whole room. In our case, it's two rooms. (Click on the photos to enlarge).
I'm getting all the health lab reports back from the lab this week and all is well. I'm very low in B12 so taking a vitamin once a day, but no changes for the other pills and doing fine. I don't go back for another year for all the labs and in six months for the A1C count. My eyes are perfect with no changes. That's great news. Still have a couple more appointments to go to finish out all the health stuff. I ended the week with my monthly massage and chiropractor appointment, so all set.
We have some new ducks that have come to visit this week. They're black bellied whistling ducks. Not sure if they whistle, been quiet so far.
It's been raining every day and it's fun to watch the sheets of rain come across the lake.
Ducks were asleep all over the yard when the rain comes, they all stand up and FACE the rain. They never move, just stand in one spot till the rain subsides. We love our view of the canal and all the ducks, birds, alligators, and turtles. Our alligator was around most of the week.
Thursday night we went to an assailant class at the sheriff's center. There were close to 100 people. The two officers told us what to do if a shooter came to a public place, school, college or church. We have to be prepared either with or without a concealed carry weapon. It was quite interesting and well worth the time. The stats were scary. It can happen anytime anywhere, are you prepared?
I've been doing a lot of crocheting and one thing that caught my eye was earphone pouches. So I made a few. Front and back
One for Halloween.
We went to Olive Garden for father's day. They have a new dish for those that don't want to eat pasta. It's super good, has zucchini pasta (Zoodles), red peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, shrimp or chicken, in a garlic basal sauce. That's now a go to place since Jim likes his pasta and I'm trying to stay away from it. (No carbs) When I first get something from a restaurant I only eat half of it and bring the rest home. Helps to keep from getting "full".
See you next week.
