The very best sound is the sound of my house ringing with laughter of family and friends. From elderly to infant, we had them all at our house Saturday. It was a perfect day. Hot, with a bit of breeze, the pool was perfect, the food was amazing (thanks again for grilling C.) Everyone brought something to pass and the variety was wonderful. Several times I just stopped and listened and found myself wishing for things that can never be. I got way too much sun and slept for two days after, but that’s OK. It felt wonderful.
The best sight was waking up Sunday morning to my granddaughters sweet face peering over the edge of the bed and asking in her sweet voice, “can horsey wake up now?”. We have a bouncy horse with springs that she loves. She will get up all night and bounce on that horse, so Sat. I put horsey to sleep in my room. He couldn’t wake up till I did. She did wait till she heard Joe talking to me. Such a sweetie.
The best feeling was the hug my grandson gave me as they were leaving. I told him I needed a good long cuddle and he held me for at least three minutes. That’s a long time for a five-year old. He smells so good. No matter what, he always smells the same.
Today I went in had some blood work done to test my thyroid to see if medication can correct its issues. So, I find out Friday. I did weigh in at 118.8 today so I’m up three pounds. Man, I work hard for those pounds. Since I’m never hungry, and have a hard time swallowing when I am, I tend not to eat much. So every morning I make my big ass cup of coffee with three heaping scoops of carnation instant breakfast and a 1/2 cup of whole milk. I need to look into a protein powder since protein adds muscle. At least no-one told me I was “too skinny”. I hate that. They remember me at 189, so to them, I’m too thin. I think I’m fine.
I’m going to call it a night. Sweet dreams everyone. I’m in the process of learning how to crochet a sock. We will see how it turns out.
