It's 95F out there today, and right now I'm luxuriating in the air conditioned, cool air here in the house, result of the new a/c unit that was installed about 10 days ago. Dear, dear son and I are just back from Home Depot where we got me a pressurized tank to replace the old sick one -- for the well-water system. Gotta water the tree we replanted yesterday 'cause some no-brain hit it with his truck Saturday night. Brother, can you spare a dime .... And I'm hoping my dear, dear son doesn't suddenly decide to move to Alaska (or somewhere else just as far away from my house as he can get).

Just got home. We spent memorial weekend at my mom's in SW Minnesota. It was nice to spend some time with my mom. 2 of my sisters & 1 of my brothers were there. We all went & put flowers at the cemetary on the family graves. It meant so much to mom to go back to the homeplace where she was raised in the 40's. A great weekend overall. Feels good to sit back & relax with my feet up. Early day at work tomorrow.

Mom did a short vid for us of the Cemetery in Torrington with Grandpa and Grandma. I used to drive Grandma every year, the last time was the year she died. Now Mom and Dad live only 15 minutes away. Shrek's brother sent us pics of their parents graves.

Went out for pizza today and then spent some time at a local rose garden downtown.

Original plan was to see a movie, but when we saw the line at the theater, we decided to just wing it and go downtown, turned out to be a great alternative.

There's a nice thought -- literally stopping to smell the roses. I've always liked the deep red Mr. Lincoln rose that has the most heavenly fragrance.

Taking a 15 minute break on DC before I go to my aqua chi class. Missed it last week, I am looking forward to it, my knees are killing me.

Aqua chi. Sounds interesting. We were just talking about tai chi today in pain program. I think the comination of water and tai chi would be good for me. I will have to see if it is offered anywhere around here.

I went to see my vascular doctor this morning. Came home exhausted. More tests ordered. I scheduled them for the end of June. the eye surgery is next. thursday I go for the eye scan so they can map the eye. Whatever that is. Then I guess they will schedule the surgery in the next couple of weeks.

took a nap and slept for four hours. Think I was tired?
