Just Some Stuff

Good Morning My Bloggy Buddies.  I can't believe it's been so long since I've written any pearls of wisdom or at least one or two rants...I'm losing my touch!!  LOL  Like so many of you, I can't blame it on the weather or brown outs or blow outs or whatever whirls your electricity.  Actually, the Southwestern part of the U.S. has been quite nice, a little humid, but nice.  We had triple digit temps in June, but what else is new, but it was soon broken with the promise of rain, or as it's called around here, the "monsoon season!"  Hey, when we get more than 4" of rain/year, that's a monsoon!!  LOL  Anyway, it seems we got our years worth on Wed. and of course, Miss Daisy and I were out in it.  I swear, it seems when it rains out here, all the idiots who normally stay in-doors and stay put and away from any moving vehicles, take that opportunity to decided to take a spin around town...can you spell  "H-y-d-r-o-p-l-a-n-i-n-g!!!?"  The thing with rain out here is that it pours for a few minutes, I mean real "frog chokers" then it abruptly ends, with the sun shinning through the dark clouds and in a matter of minutes, the the sky is bright blue again.  We're under water restrictions and have been for the last 20 years, in seems, so when it rains, our rather dead looking grass lawns, for those of us who havent' gone xerioscaping (sp. but what that means, is putting in rocks and desert plants that don't require hardly any water) yet or ever, look green and lush during the rainy season, which is coming to an end very soon.

Currently, I'm waiting for my physician to call me back due to a medicine malfunction.  He prescribe a beta-blocker for my increased heart rate and blood pressure and I've only been on it for a couple of days and already I'm feeling pretty crappy...hell, I could have dropped from a stroke and never feel this badly!!  It has a list of warnings and "possible" side affects and of course, Georgina has them all!  It affects one's blood sugar if your a diabetic, which I am, and yesterday, I had difficulty with dropped to 67, which is normal for those without the disease, but for those of us who have it, well, it's "fainting" time for us!! I ate 3 of those glucose sugar tablets and it inched up to 79...big deal!! Last night, I finally gave up and headed to the bedroom about 7ish, after making dinner which I couldn't even look at...bleh!!  My honey took off today so we could have a nice 3 day weekend, and we've been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks now.  I had my son, Ian, visiting for a bit over a month, so he was my constant companion during that time until Sunday, when his father came to pick him up.    Anyway, I decided I didn't want to extend this into the weekend, so I made the call about 10 mins. ago so let's see how long it will take for either him or his nurse to call back...doctors...OY!!

I've found my way back into the studio lately and am making some more of my coco-head dollies.  I posted one last month my blog and I've made one more.  Actually, I completed one more...have some heads waiting for their bods.  This one is a framed skellie coco-head.  I also am going to make small "Frida" coco-head dolls and cut out their clothing yesterday so I can start painting on the fabric.  No, I haven't set up my Etsy shop yet, but again, if anyone is interested, let me know.  He can be yours for a mere $35 plus shipping.  I don't have a PayPal account set up either, so if any of you are into instant gratification, sorry.  I do accept checks and money orders, for now till the Paypal thing is ready.

Also, I have to show you pics of my two younger grandies, Sammy and Zoe (umlout over the e...still don't know how to do it on blogger).

My cousin asked me the other day how I can not be visiting every month  to enjoy these little morsels of preciousness and they are!! However, I explained to her that these children need both a mother and grandmother and if I did visit every month, someone would die!!!  LOL  I will be visiting again in late Oct.  While my older 3 grandsons were here visiting their father, I had them for a day...usually, I take them for more days during their visit, but I just couldn't get my schedule in order to see them more often.  Anyway, they asked me to visit for Halloween, thus, I made reservations and I will be there for the All Hallows festivities and hopefully the "Day of the Dead" festivities down on S. Congress St. in Austin that  weekend, since I'm extending my stay into November.   South Congress has all those cute little trailer eateries and very cool shops and of course, one can sit and watch the show of very "authentic" individuals strutting their very authentic it!!

Well folks, I'm sure I could write more, but I'm hungry and I'm in the mood for pancakes, so I'm off to the kitchen to make some, of course, we could always get dressed and head on out to the I-Hop...nah, I'll just make my own.  Have a great weekend and as always, peace out.
