Monday, September 3rd - Labor Day
Monday was a holiday and we did not have anything planned until 4:00 when we were going to Alex City for a cookout at Bills. Mrs Betty Jean called and her hibiscuses were blooming again so we went over for a visit. I love hanging out in her backyard. Her McCarley cat posed prettily for me, her sun catcher caught my eye, her crab apple tree was loaded....those are not all leaves you are looking at. Those are crab apples. Frank sat in his chair and did preventive maintenance on his eyelids. I can't believe I got the shot. LOL!

I had some blood drawn last Thursday(something I have done on a regular basis since I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis) and this is what my arm is looking like sstill today. The nurse told me she did not bruise her patients. I kept trying to tell her that my left arm was not a good arm to do this. This was the price I paid for being right. Hopefully next time she will listen.

Some of my favorite things. I did not get home until late tonight. We are bowling again on Thursday nights. I did not get any shots today so I grabbed some when I got home. The top is a table when you come in the front door (noone ever does), the second shot is my lady of Sevilla print I got at the Unclaimed Baggage shop last weekend. I finally took it out of the car....now to just take it to school, the third shot is a lighthouse my dear friend Debo had made for me. I love it because it lights up. The last shot is my new favorite necklace I found in Cracker Barrel. I love that place. You can have breakfast anytime you want it....and shop for cool and unusual things.

Steeples at Rock Mills United Methodist and Rock Mills Baptist. Storm is a brewing.

Frank's nephew has been in the Middle East for what seems like forever. He is an MP. Saturday he was on his way back to his lovely wife, Annie, for two weeks of R & R and had an 8 hour layover in Atlanta. His mom Ann, step-father, Richard(from Greenville, SC), Frank and I met him there and spent several wonderful hours with him at the Atlanta Bread Company in the airport. It was great. Annie will get to see him today. I know she will be so glad and I'll bet she did not sleep a wink last night. His unit should be coming home in January for good....or at least until their next deployment. We are very proud of him and our son-in-law who serve. Be sure and thank a military person next time you see them. They sacrifice a lot so we can sleep in peace at night. Have a great week!
