Wednesday, June 9, 2021 — Such a beautiful day today. Our weather has turned back to winter temperatures, but the sunshine is warm and most welcome. Hard to believe it’s Summertime with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees.
We have a realtor selected for listing our home. He came to check the house out the other day and said it would most likely sell quickly. The market is very active right now and people are often paying more than the asking price for homes. I’m still packing and sorting out our possessions. Decisions, decisions! LOL
We’ve already had one person interested in purchasing the house, and it’s not even officially on the market yet. I gave him the Cook’s Tour of the place and after viewing the house, we adjourned to the deck to catch a few trains moving through down below. Nice of the trains to cooperate and show up for us.
The kids were up this past weekend and we had a great visit. Then yesterday, the younger son arrived with the ex-daughter-in-law of Robert’s older brother. She wanted to see our home before we sold it. We were pleased to have her visit. It was hinted that she was considering relocating to California from her home in Kansas. I can’t blame her–California may be expensive, but it’s a wonderful place to call home. We love living here in Tehachapi and wouldn’t think of living anywhere else.
I saw the cardiologist yesterday and he’s told me to stop taking two medications. They aren’t the ones I wanted or expected to stop taking, but fewer drugs is fewer drugs and I’ll take whatever I can get. I told him about my truly debilitating muscle cramping and he suggested I eat a banana every day, or to drink coconut water. He also said I needed a defibrilator to prevent a sudden fatal heart attack. He told me that the heart monitor that I will soon wear isn’t like the older models, but merely a patch that they put on my chest. I’m waiting for a phone call from his office in Bakersfield to set appointment to have the patch installed. Should be interesting.
The younger son went to the store for drinks last night and came home with fresh bananas and a variety of coconut water. Nice kid!! The dr. also said he wanted a new blood test, so this morning I went for another fasting blood draw. When I returned home, everyone was waiting and we headed out to the Keene Cafe for breakfast.
The kids left to return home shortly after we got home from breakfast. It’s strange how much you look forward to having your kids visit, but are so very happy when they leave to return to their own homes. I have another doctor’s appointment this afternoon and then no more appointments for me for the interim. Hooray!
Our replacement dwarf Crepe Myrtle trees arrived on Monday and we’ll need to get them in the ground today. They’re really cute. I’ll share photos once they’re planted.
Not much else to report so will close with blessings to all. Be safe, take care of yourself and remember to tell those you love that you love them.
