It seems here lately that my energy level has been, well, non existent. So after a visit to the doctor and a change in blood pressure pills, I am beginning to see a glimmer of life out of the recliner. The weather this week has also contributed to a new "spring" in my step. Maybe I can sow some wild oats this weekend!
My summer is shaping up to be different from what I am used to. I am going to be blessed with my nephew's fiancee for the summer. It will be a real change for me to actually have someone to talk to at night around here. Hope I have not turned into grumpy old "Maxine" and Lauren will enjoy her stay. I know it will be nice for me to get to know her better.
And now for the big news . . . . . drumroll please. . . . . another trip to Alaska is in the making!!! I have been missing my four Alaskans rather severely the last few weeks so with the help of Uncle Sam's rebate or whatever it is called, I'm off to the frozen land this month. Since it is still snowing out there, I have invested (no exaggeration) in a down jacket to take with me. We hope to go north and see Denali up close this trip. That would be awesome. I talk to the girls almost every day but it is not enough so I'm off once again. I just wish I could bring them all home with me.

Yard Work

Got the sticks picked up and the front section mowed today. Hopefully, tomorrow I can run the sweeper over that part and then get the north end done between rains. I love the look of my yard right after it has been mowed. Wish I had finished while the sun was up and the pictures would be prettier. Maybe tomorrow.

My Boring Life

I'm at home with the sinus crud that is going around and waiting for 8:30 so I can call the doctor. One of those miracle shots would be wonderful.

Not much has been happening lately. Fancy has settled in and is the best little companion in the whole world. She is just a little lovable bundle of pure joy. The only negative is not getting to sleep in on Saturday. She is right on schedule with needing to go outside. But she likes our recliner naps as much as I do.

May will be a great month. . . . . Alaska here I come! If I was retired, the kids would be in for a big change. They would have a permanent house guest. At least they are safe for another four years. Maybe I will summer with them and winter in Arkansas.

Got to get ready for the doctor.
