Not because I wanted to rest. I took a benadryl this morning because the allergies were acting up again - it was really awful. I just took another one this evening (and gave one to Rocky) and hope I can get some sleep tonight, as well as to get something for the allergies that doesn't contain the antihistimine. I think that is the part I'm allergic to.
I did finish (mostly) putting all the clean laundry away and plan to stay away from the laundry room for a while. I had bought a set of really high quality sheets at Costco, washed them, and put them on the bed last night. I got a wonderful night's sleep and the fitted sheet didn't pull away from the mattress as the cheaper ones from Target and Walmart do.
I think Ara's Steven had to go back to work and I believe he might have left today. Every time I see him I like him more! He's extremely helpful, easy going, and fun to be around. He and Ara are both musical, performing at times with groups in the Pittsburgh area, and he played music for us out on the deck yesterday evening. Ara sang with him in some of the songs, and when he played one of my favorite bluegrass songs I even sang along! Ara will be here for another week, I believe, and I'm making a list of places she might drive me.
It topped 80 degrees today and I'm unhappy about it. It will be that way until later into next week, but won't go down very much. Fortunately the mornings are cool and nights are great for sleeping.
I tried to take a couple of photos today, and when I get several of them together I will try to post them.
I hope I can buy a new computer this weekend. The one I'm using is so difficult - the font changes the print size in the middle of a word or sentence, and it's just generally such a nuisance to use.
I need to go chase Rocky down - he went out into the yard and I'm surprised he is still out there. He just walked in with a squeaky ball in his mouth. It's too late to play, Rocky!
