This and That

 The weekend arrived but  we won't have a good one weather wise. It is already raining and it wasn't to get here until about 1 A.M.. Just about three hours early.
Work has been hectic what little I did get to work. I hope to get more time in this next week. I just have a lot of catch up to do. I probably could have worked tomorrow, but I needed to see about my new lenses and get me a perm for a couple of things. I don't know what else we will do. 
He has been using the wheel chair all week where ever we have gone and that is not a good sign. They just tell me to finish the doctor appointments and we will go from there. I just don't think they know anymore whats going on then I do. 
At least I have a new ride to make sure I get to all of the appointments. It has a lot of bells and whistles, but not the navigator that you could just touch the screen for whatever you wanted. That was just to much money. Hubby picked the color  which is Candy Apple Red metallic with a charcoal gray interior. They definitely can see me coming that  is for sure. We are getting about 30 miles per gallon gas wise which is not to bad.
Our youngest grandson passed his guppy test in swimming this week and our middle one had his first riding lesson. They were both on cloud nine. We were very proud of them. I still can't get over how much our oldest has grown just since Christmas. Mom is holding off getting him new jeans until closer to show season for fear he will out grow them before he really gets to use them. 
The month is almost half gone and it seemed like it just started yesterday. I have about got my tractor pillow case done. i haven't got to do quite as much because of other commitments I have right now. 
You all have a good weekend and I am going to try to do some visiting your blogs tomorrow. Have a good one and take care.

I love your new car...very flashy! I know you must just love driving it!

We could use some is predicted for the weekend but who knows. Our grass definitely needs it as we just put sown some seed and fertilizer. Hope all goes well with the doctor's appointments.

Take care and big hugs...

Hi, Shirley, my friend,
I love your new ride!! I love red autos. My favorite auto that I ever owned was a red Chevy Silverado pickup. I still miss that truck. Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you. I know you have had a rough road here lately. Enjoy your weekend~ Vicki

Love your new car, Shirley. Watch your speed-they always watch for the RED cars, you know. Hope your hubby improves. I know how hard it is on you to have him not doing so well. Blessings and I hope you both have a good weekend-xo Diana

Hey! That's a snazzy automobile! You are going to look like one hot mama with it. Congratulations!
I hope you and your husband can keep your spirits up. I think that's very important. Enjoy today and don't focus on the what could be tomorrow. Stay positive. I know that's easier said than done.
