Midnight at the Oasis

 I awoke from a night's sleep or my version of a night at midnight. I had gone to sleep at 9 pm. But, do you think I could get  a good night's sleep? Well, no. Apparently, I am not meant to sleep ever again. 

A trip to the doctor confirmed I am going to live, that I survived the severe (bronchitis?) lung problem, the prednisone and Z pack. I feel really well. 

The seat pattern and 4 pieces of plywood are at my friend's house, awaiting his magic saw. Hopefully, he will get those done soon so that I can get Tommy's chairs upholstered and he will have something sturdy. He readily agreed to lose the old, metal and vinyl chairs when we rescued these. Actually, I put a "free" sign on them. Someone who was willing and able to do a bit of work picked them up. 

A piece of "free to me" plywood stayed propped against the mailbox post until someone rescued it.

My friend who died two weeks ago is having a virtual memorial with Zoom. Or, maybe it is a virtual funeral, not sure. 

Tommy really uses his bird book and cd lots. We saw a bird in my yard that neither of us recognized. He spent time looking it up while I was in the doctor's office. Apparently, it is a cowbird.

Wildlife is abundant when a person is looking for it and when  a person is not. We saw so many cows up close and personal. Well, they all seemed to be near to the highway where we cold get a good look as we zoomed by. I love cows!

Tommy often asks me "What is that flower?" Mostly, I only catch a blurry glimpse of color. Sometimes, I know; sometimes, I don't. Today, I ordered a seed catalogue and another for flowers. I guarantee he will enjoy these in the car and at home. 

It is now 1:30. Maybe I can get more sleep.

  2. I hope you get the rest you need. Scary to have the breathing/lung issue for so long. I think if in good shape, tommy's chairs might be considered retro-so I understand why someone else would want them.

    1. SAM,
      They had no torn vinyl, just loose and missing hardware. I was afraid to sit in them. But, they were otherwise in good condition.

  3. I'm like that with birds and flowers, too. I love seeing cows. I told dh everytime I see a field of cows grazing I think I should have lived on a cattle ranch haha. (my grandparents on dad's side were cattle ranchers)

    1. One,
      LOL...I don't go that far. I just wish I lived next to a cattle ranch. Really, cows are so nice. We should have lived with flowers, birds and animals all around...except for raccoons.

  4. Glad you are feeling better. Have you ever discussed your sleep problem with your doctor? From everything you say about your sleep habits, you may have sleep apnea. If so, that can lead to some very serious health problems.

    1. Ms Goose,
      It was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw it was midnight. Well, I hope the ear worm goes away. I slept 2 hours last night!

Nothing Much Saturday--This and That

Today, we saw a clip of a 98-yr-old nurse who was retiring. Tommy commented that she could get around better than either of us could.  So tr...
