Well the trip went well but went straight to hospital to get control of the pain.....it took them until today so I just got here and saw Brian for the first time since Thurs  and that I was in a medi van and he had to finish the house packing and he drove up Friday and arrived Sat.....he couldn't see me because he had to be quarantined for 2 wks.....so now at our daughters and she is a big help.....still discomfort but at least I can walk now for the first time since last Sat.....and the bigger news is that we are going to look at a house tomorrow that looks very promising.....

Morning Kitty.  Glad you pain is less and the trip is over.  You got here just in time for a cold front to pass through.

I got a lot of work done on the drainage ditches last couple days but still not done.  Might be able to continue on if we don't get to much rain.

Don't know yet if Brandy and I will walk this morn, radar shows rain at about 8:15 and 10:15. 

Daughter brought grands up for swimming Saturday and Sunday.

Hope you enjoy looking at homes.

Dear Kitty ~

Not sure I comprehended what happened on your trip up North ~  you arrived and went straight to the hospital for treatment?    Oh my, what an awful time for this to happen.   Big fear is to enter the hospital alone without Jim ~ guess that is what we now face.

Well, you are now back North and feeling better I hope.  Looking for a house will be a wonderfully fun thing to do.  Will you have your furniture in storage up North?   So many details.

A lovely day here.  Did not have a good day with knee (injection no. 2) called and they said it often happens.  Would like to take a boat trip over to Kelley's Island for the day only.  Mask, of course.  Big debate is whether to take the convertible over or just rent a golf cart.......

Stay safe and well   Hugs.   Susan

Hi Ernie ~

Lovely day here by the Lake and God's Glorious Water yesterday ~ at least a few inches or so.  Made all of the flowers and trees and gardeners very happy.

Must cut back knock off roses today.  They rebloom so much better when they are cut back and deadheaded.

Delayed a trip to one of our islands (knee injection caused much pain).  Will possibly try tomorrow.

Nice weather ahead the next few days.  Cooler!  Enjoy

Morning Susan.  We have the cold front coming through with storms today. 

I have trouble with one knee but glucosamine twice a day takes care of it so I'm lucky.

I have my haircut appt at my wife's salon today.  Got a role of the lesser landscape cover for my ditches so have to go get a heavy duty role to continue.  I can use the regular weed block role around the pool.

Brandy and I made it out on our walk a little late yesterday, a little light rain but not bad.

Good luck with your knee today.

Morning Kitty.  Glad you are happy up north here.  Hope you get the house you want.  I'm thinking we will live in this house for the duration.  Raised our children here for the most part.  Our first daughter took the Army tour with us first.

Tried to get some work done on the ditch yesterday but didn't get far before it rained.  Had to go to my haircut appt. first hair appt for me ever.  Then had to go buy some more landscape cover.

Brandy got to play with her dog friend next door yesterday.  Took her out because she was bored out of her mind in the living room and her friend was out.

I went into the clinic and had blood drawn and went to see the dr for the follow up.  Think I'm all done with appts for this ear.

Have a great day Kitty.
