May 1911

Long day to day.  We left here right after breakfast, about 6:40 and got into Murfreesboro at 8:10 for Norman’s eye doctor appointment.  We asked about trying to stop the shots but when given all the information decided against stopping them.  He will have the macular degeneration all his life and with only one good eye we can’t take the chance.  There is no cure.   The best we can hope for is to keep it in remission for as long as we can.  So we will be back there in 8 weeks.  We stopped at Food Land on the way home and got some bananas on sale.  We also got a few items that we needed and got home about 11 a.m.   I went right to work on the banana bread and had four loaves in the oven by dinner time.  Then got four more loaves in right after dinner.  I also pick up some apples on sale and put two apple pies in the freezer for later.  Then finished the afternoon frying some more tomatoes.  I finished up about 3 and we watched a good movie this evening “The Black Rose ”   They are calling for rain tomorrow so maybe I’ll get some computer work done.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.

    We will pray that Norman’s eyes will stay strong, and that you both will stay well this winter. Glad to hear you do take some time off and relax watching a movie. ♥

    • Thank you for your prays. We do take time off. We don’t get cell phone service out here but we do get netflix so get three movies a week and never miss watching those as soon as they come and we get cable so we watch quite a few movies on that. There isn’t much else on TV worth watching and I find if I sit for long periods I get so stiff I can’t move so I don’t like to sit for too long. We only have two more months before we head for Florida. I am looking forward to seeing the great grand kids again. It has been three months since I have seen them and they change so much so fast at this age so can’t wait to get down there and play with them. Stay well and have a great day.
