2017 Life Logs, Day 361: More Food Shopping and Cooking + A Personal Treat
Date: Wednesday, December 27, 2017
Weather: Partly Sunny and Chilly; High 30’s, Low 20’s F
Location: At Home with Patsy and Joe in Mt. Juliet, TN
The here is chilly, but when I look at the forecast for Falmouth tomorrow, I see we are going to be twice as warm here with a high of 36 degrees F. And when I looked at the high in Boothbay, Maine, for tomorrow where Heather and family are for the week, I had to look twice to make sure I was seeing straight. They are going to have a high of 5 degrees F. That’s not chilly. That’s truly cold. And while we are all in the deep freeze, Justin and family in Puerto Rico will have temps in the 80’s. So to help us forget about the weather, Patsy, Joe, and I are going to the movies tomorrow. Joe wants to see the Churchill movie, The Darkest Hour, so we will do that in the afternoon.
This morning I did more food shopping and I started a batch of chicken mineral broth. Then I went to get a massage. My niece Janet gave this to me as a Christmas gift and it was fabulous. Patsy went with me, but while I was having the massage, she went clothes shopping. When we got home, I spent time doing a variety of jobs. The biggest one is finding a way to get my brother-in-law to buy into some major life style changes. He is having various health issues, but is not taking steps to address any of them. My job while I am here is to try and get him to buy into the idea of taking control of his situation and making the necessary changes. Today’s goal was to get him to drink a healthy amount of water. That effort failed. But we’ll try again tomorrow.
