good Morning- I did not sleep well last night. Cedar Fever is bad here - (allergies). My eyes water - I take over the counter medicine- then it dries out my eyes and sinuses too much. But I hate the watering eyes, so on the days it is bad I take medication. I was out raking leaves yesterday for some reason I love to rake the leaves. I did it as a kid, but now at my age it is great exercise. DH and I get out and keep up with the leaves. Over all things have gotten better with DH and his retirement. We have had many a talk. I am really trying to keep me time. I also mailed some books for my 93 old lady friend. In our last vacation - we visited Mother Teresa's house in Macedonia. There was a book store there, but I do not buy books on vacation too heavy. I bought her some bookmakers. She send me a letter saying that would like me to research for her more on Mother Theresa - she loved her so and would like to read more about her. She asks much of me often, but she is getting up there in age - lives 1200 miles from me. We have been sending letters very regularly. I sent 3 books to her by book rate. Now that I am retired, I am careful with expenses. Book rate was $6 compared to $30 first class. She will eventually get them. They go slower book rate. I was glad that I sent them b/c her body is failing her, but her mind is still clear. I purchased TurboTax also- getting ready for tax season. It will be complicated this year for us. But I do taxes every year and I know I can do it this year, too. have a good day. I am soon off to exercise.
