Yesterday I attended a celebration for a relative who turned 100 years old and she's as bright as a button and can carry on a conversation and is interested in what's going on around her. She had her leg amputated two years ago but still can get around swiftly with her prosthesis using a walker. She looks like she's in her late seventies.  The community was all invited for this occasion and the hall was packed. I forgot my camera, again  and asked a friend to email me a few photos but I haven't received any yet. 

Yesterday also, I attended breakfast with friends but I only had a bite to eat with my coffee and attended a brunch  later on with my husband.  It seemed like the day was so short and it was already night. 

This evening I just got back from the funeral home and had to wait in line to get in to see the family  for about an hour and a half standing on ceramic tile floor. My legs and my back were aching from this long wait. Tomorrow we will attend the funeral and the tiny church will be packed to overflowing. It's my husband's second cousin.

This afternoon, I did some more cleaning in the shed and had to deal with a bag of lime that got wet from a leak in the roof. It was in a paper bag and was dries enough to spread on my lawn. Also some of my fertilizer got wet but because it was in a plastic bag, it was too wet to spread so I'll have to deal with that another time. The rest of the stuff, my husband has to decide what is good and what to throw away. So I have to play the waiting game before I can say that the shed is all tidied up.

I'm feeling a bit tired so maybe I better call it quit for today. JB
