Remember Queen Ida? I always loved her! She was always good for a laugh. Another Ida came on shore on the Gulf Coast on Monday, and she is no laughing matter. A pretty pitiful storm, as far as tropical cyclones go, but nevertheless her remnants will be inundating the southeastern US with heavy rain. I was hoping she would continue her right turn upon coming on shore, then blow on through Georgia and back on out into the Atlantic, but she decided to slowly slide on up the east coast, instead. The forecast? Rain for the next three days!
I happened to have Dancing With the Stars on the TV tonight. Why did I have to watch that? Few things will stir my GID faster, than watching absolutely gorgeous girls, in slinky revealing gowns and towering stilettos, reveling in their femininity in front of an adoring crowd. I've always loved ballroom dancing! You don't have to guess which gender I always identify with.
Nearly all of the leaves are off the trees now, consequently my privacy will be virtually nonexistent for the next six months. The deck was completely covered in fallen leaves, so this afternoon I decided to clean it off. Did my neighbors realize who that curvy brunette was, sweeping off the deck in her purple ribbed v-neck sweater and skinny jeans, or have they figured out by now, that we are one and the same?
UPS will be delivering two tubes of Prescriptives All Skins Mineral Makeup tomorrow. It's a great long wearing foundation, that is supposed to last for 16 hours. Not that I would ever wear foundation that long, but I have been know to wear it for 10 or 12 hours. Most foundation will start floating off of my face after about 4 to 6 hours, but this stuff won't. It's excellent makeup, but why in the world does it have to cost $32.50 per 1 ounce tube?
I had supper at my mother's again on Monday night. Everyone seems to be slowly getting back to normal. My brother-in-law has continued to come, and seems to be getting back to his old self. He still can't bring himself to take my sister's voice off of their voice mail recording though. Mom cooked a lovely supper of pork tenderloin, stuffing, mashed potatoes, steamed asparagus and glazed baby carrots. We had butter pecan ice cream for desert. She seemed to be in pretty good spirits, but at nearly 89, she is looking a bit haggard. I think cooking dinner for everyone on Mondays gives her sense of purpose, but I worry about her going grocery shopping at the Krogers next store, for fear she will take an ill-fated tumble. She has already fallen and broken her hip twice. Her problem is that when she gets her mind on something, she becomes oblivious to the hazards around her. The last time she broke her hip, she had a repairman working in her kitchen, and instead of keeping clear of him, she decided to do some work in there along side of him. She turned around to move something from one counter to the other, an tripped right over the guy, who was down on the floor working under the sink.
Rebecca had Marcie Bowers perform her revision surgery this morning, and according to her blog, all went well. Congratulations, and a speedy recovery to her!
