 Hello, friends.  How was your day?  This day went so quickly.  I ran some errands and got nothing done around the house.  But that's the way it goes sometimes.  I'll just plunge on again tomorrow.

I had to run to the bank and of course it is all drive through these days.  I was surprised to see that I was the only one in line.  It didn't make much difference though because I had to sit in line for 5 minutes before I was even acknowledged.  Then the girl who came on the screen asked if I had a deposit slip.  Uh... yeah.  Everything was ready for her.  She said she would send the canister to me.  I had to wait another 5 minutes until the door opened for me to retrieve it.  I sent it back and then waited.  And waited.  And waited.  Finally it came back and I took the receipts and left.  When I got home, I realized there was a receipt missing.  Obviously this girl did not know what she was doing.

I mentioned last time that I would tell you about going to see the new doctor.  My appointment was at 9:30 a.m.  And even though I was running late, I was going to just make it.  But when I got to the hospital, there was no handicapped parking available.  I drove around hoping that someone would pull out, but no such luck.  I finally found a spot about in the middle of the lot and parked.  I called the office and told them what had happened and asked if I should still keep my appointment or reschedule.  They told me to come up, so I did.

Of course the lady scheduled after me was taken first.  I had no problem with that.  Finally I was taken back and had blood pressure, pulse, etc. taken.  The nurse was so sweet.  Finally the doctor came in.

I liked her from the beginning.  She was pleasant, but very knowledgeable and kind.  She explained everything to me, answered all my questions and after examining me said it would surprise her very much if my cancer had come back.  She thinks the tiny lump under my skin is scar tissue since I had surgery in the same place three times.  But because of my cancer history and cancer running in the family she wants to make sure.  So in two weeks I will have a biopsy.  Assuming all is well, I can then go on with my life and enjoy my fall.

Speaking of fall, where did the summer go?  At least it has seemed to be a long summer to me.  Many years it just flies by.  But I am ready for some cooler temperatures and beautiful colors.  It was 97*F (36*C) today.

On the news tonight the weather station showed a picture of Rosetree Hill in Media, PA.  It was so pretty, that I snapped a photo of it off of the TV.  Wouldn't you like to wake up to this view every morning?

Joe got a haircut today.  All of his long curls are gone.  But it looks so much better.  The barber did a great job on him.

And now I am going to get off of here and get myself ready for bed.  I am so tired.  Hope you all have a good night's sleep.

Until later,



  1. Golly...good thing that you were first in line at the bank. Your doctor sounds good and encouraging and thorough. Hope that your sleep will have been sweet...I'm listening to c-span and when the evening is over, I will toodle off to bed myself.

  2. I can sympathsize about waiting. My bank (WFSF) is now open inside,so I'm
    happy. Glad to hear you like & feel comfortable with your doctor. I'm also looking forward to some cooler temps.

  3. Hi Kathy - waiting at the bank is so frustrating. We have done that too. Glad you like your new doctor. Lovely picture of Rosetree Hill. I love how Pennsylvania is so green! My husband needs a haircut too. Have a good weekend. I will stop by and visit again soon!

  4. Hi Kathy,
    I don't know if its just me but it seems to me that since all this Covid stuff businesses are using it as an excuse to work VERY SLOWLY and customer service seems to have gone out the window. I still have no idea why Covid would cause people to work at a snails pace and not very well at the same time but it seems to be happening all over in almost every business. I hope the doctor is right about the scar tissue. My husband has had 11 back surgeries and scar tissue builds quickly and can cause pain etc...Please let us know when you find out. XO

  5. Glad to hear your good news. Waiting has become part of the norm everywhere now. Especially on the phone, then you get to do business with a recording. Cooler temps are here too now. I just hope we have a long Autumn. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  6. Waiting is awful, whatever you are waiting for. So glad you like your new doctor - makes a big difference. Happy weekend.

  7. My glad you didn't get canceled. One of my friends was 1 min. late and they canceled her! I would have quit going there if they did that to me. Anyway, prayers that the biopsy goes well and all will be good. I'm very ready for Fall. It's going to cool off by Sunday thankfully and we finally got rain! Our banks here in Ohio are open with social distancing and masks. Thankfully because I had to get a notary for some of my retirement papers. Have a good weekend!

  8. Hi Kathy, I haven't been around very much and just stopped by to catch up with you.
    I'm still praying for your Church and that your state opens up real soon!

  9. Hi, Kathy! I'm finally catching up on some blogs and was so happy to see you here! That was a long wait at your bank. Since Covid I've been doing deposits with my phone. Scared me a bit at first but I got used to it. So glad you were pleased with the new Dr! Hoping with you for a good report after the biopsy.
    Take care, my friend!

  10. With best wishes and prayers.

    God bless.
