off to the gym

Thursday, January 09, 2020

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. emoticon

    Used to use TurboTax, too, then things just got too complicated.

    HOpe your allergies simmer down. Right now mine are acting up, too. Not sure what is triggering them! Taking my Zyrtec and it helps.

    My grandma loved to rake leaves, she raked them till she was 92, then she passed a yr later. She said it was great exercise 👍. Hope your allergies clear up soon. Have a fantastic day.
