It was a cliff hanger folks. Detroit was up 8-4, top of the ninth. The other team scored three runs right away. Luckily, the third pitcher they put out was able to get the job done.
The game was good, but it would have been so much better if it wasn’t 91 in the shade with hardly any breeze. I think I dropped five pounds in water weight alone.
The best part of the game for me was playing “remember when” with the kids during the down times in the game. We have taken so many long vacations and just short weekend trips and have seen some strange things. All in all it’s been a pretty good run. I do believe the good times outweighed the bad, and you can’t beat that with a stick.
Getting ready for some baseball
Could barely breath it was so hot and muggy. But we had fun anyway.
Mugging for the camera.
Oh, I got my once a year corn dog today. I know they are a disgusting mix of hot dogs and corn bread, deep-fried on a stick, but I love them. So I allow myself one a year. It’s a treat and a reward and a gross indulgence slathered in yellow mustard.
Well, I think I’ve had way too much fun and sun today. My head is baking.
Oh, finally have a plan for the last bedroom. I’m not gonna give too many hints away, but watch for some serious changes.
Have a great night all. Sleep well.
She’s actually Joe’s cousin, but my friend. She has come to Michigan from Washington State to spend some time with friends and family and we were delighted to be able to spend the afternoon with her.
Lupe is a marvelous person with so many stories and life events that I love talking with her. We have actually only met face to face on four occasions and each time is like we just left each other, we spend hours just talking and catching up. Even the first time. Roll back eighteen years… Joe and I are living in a very small apartment. Lupe, Bob and their two boys roll up in their “home”. Yep, they lived in a motor home. Such an adventurous spirit she contains. She was a homesteader in Alaska, been in the Army. Raised two small boys in the wilderness. Grew up in Detroit. The stories this woman tells.
And that’s not her real virtue as a friend and fellow. She asks questions of you, questions that demand multiple sentence answers. Things like “tell me how you spend your day. From first cup of coffee till bedtime. Then she listens and questions your activities. She has a knack of drawing things out of you that you didn’t know you in you, which prompts a story which prompts another funny story from one of us and another and another. The four of us talked for three hours in the restaurant and the time just flew by.
It really is a blessing that there are some people out there that are interested in who you are, not what you have that can further their agenda.
Please make sure that you follow my blog so I can include you in the waves of white light I send out nightly. It makes me sleep better picturing the people I care about being cloaked in white light for the evening. That way I know they are protected.
I’m excited. I’ve actually had a good day today.
Woke up early, 6:00 early to be exact. Haven’t napped yet. Cleaned the dining room, living room and started the entry hall. Then I took Oscar for a walk around the block which is just short of a mile.
All this after chemo yesterday. Are you as amazed as I am?
Just a bit of an upset stomach this morning, but not much else.
I think I’m liking the new steroid/b-12 combo they added to my IV. Even though the steroids have me on edge today. I’m feeling like I need to stay away from people today. The nurses did warn me that the evil twin will take hold for a day or two. I can deal with her if you all can.
I think I’ll go and rest for a while, then make turkey with smashed potatoes and gravy for dinner. Sounds yummy.
Have a lovely day.
