Allergies have me down a bit or maybe it is the antihistamine or perhaps the combination of them. We've been a bit busy too.
I did a bit of weeding this weekend. I weeded the flower bed that runs alongside the driveway. It is about four car-lengths long. I worked in 15 to 20 minute sessions over two days.... two session each day. My back is okay, but my legs, butt and right hand ache. I cannot tell you how good it felt to have those achy muscles. It has been many years since I've been able to weed the flower beds. I have more weeding to do, but it will wait until next week.
Frank had his CT scan on Monday. They were running behind, so a long afternoon.
Tuesday morning Frank had his appointment with the oncologist surgeon. The doctor pulled the JP drain out about 3 inches. There is somewhere between six and eight inches to go. So, maybe in two or three more visits the drain will be out.
Tuesday we also had the rest of our driveway paved. (Frank, David, Tom, and the man that brought the concrete did the first portion a few years ago.) This company was so happy (or I should say desperate) to have work. Frank was getting more than one estimate and this company's owner would call Frank back every couple of hours Monday evening asking if Frank had gotten the other estimate and if he could do the job tomorrow.
Our yard is full of our vehicles (large truck for hauling the rv, Frank's small truck and our car) while the concrete dries. It is a bit of a pain to park the car in the yard. A gate has to be opened and closed each time. We are suppose to have rain over the next few days and we are hoping some of the pollen will get washed off the vehicles... and that there is no hail.
This morning we had to go the Marine base to get my ID card renewed. My face is slightly swollen from allergies especially under my eyes... so you know that made for a pretty picture We picked up some meds at the pharmacy on the base and did a bit of grocery shopping at the commissary. Frank did well in the commissary. He only started venturing into stores a few days ago. We were tired when we got home. We had a quickly made lunch of hot dogs and macaroni and cheese.
Today I put a bit of fertilizer on some of the flowers and plants in the yard. Just before a rain is a good time to do that.
Tomorrow afternoon we both see the gastroenterologist Just a checkup. We are a bit tired of visiting doctors.
I appreciate all the nice comments on my header picture. The dogwoods have been so pretty this year. The blooms are almost gone from our trees and the leaves have appeared.
I really haven't felt like taking my camera around the yard so here are a few oldies...
The wisterias are blooming. We don't have any in our yard. This one is right across the street hanging amongst the cherry laurels, pecan trees and some trees that I don't know what are.
Frank cut our peach tree down. It just did not make peaches. I will miss their blossoms.
