What have I been Upto???


Well this year has begun with a BANG!
First my Beloved retired in January, the 18th. The 23rd he ended up in the hospital. For 14 days.
He got out and was out for 10 days then right back in! This time for 17 days!
Mean while I was working to get things in order, insurance, filing for disability and all that for him.
March was semi quiet just LOTS of dr visits, as in 3-4 a week. Then April opened with us on a road trip to San Antonio where he got a fistula put in. He is going back on hemo dialysis when it heals, in 1 to 3 months.

Now in all the excitement, I have fallen twice! I fell, quite literally out of my house… onto my front porch and my Best friend’s feet! Then the night before we left town, I fell at the church supper! I am fine just bruised and embarrassed!

Before we left I was working on a doll post. I have a few new additions to show off when I find that post. You see, my son upgraded my pc and all my files are on my Beloved’s server… somewhere! I will get him to find it for me.
In the meantime here are some pictures from the trip.

The view from our 11th floor hotel room. We stayed at the Omni Colonnade. The beds were typical hotel beds, wiggly not firm. The restaurant was supposed to be upscale. The only thing on the menu I recognized as food was a hamburger. It was nothing special and to be truthful, I would have liked a whataburger better.
The pool and Jacuzzi were fantastic though. OK the jacuzzi was. I didn’t try out the pool. I loved watching the view from our window. I could, off in the distance, see the San Antonio airport and enjoyed watching planes come in and land.
After not enjoying the dinner, we were NOT spending $21.95 on their breakfast. So we found a familiar place, Ihop! Where we saw this:

The cutest coffee carafe! It is roughly 1/2 the size of the ones here in Angelo. The service was better too and the atmosphere!
A last parting look as we left.

After San Antonio we went to Fredricksburg to shop. We got lunch at a small place, it was in a house! Called the City Cafe. The food was excellent. Check out Herman’s chicken fried steak dinner!

After lunch we needed to walk off some of that food! So we perused main street stopping at the Christmas store, the General store and Dooley’s.
We also went to the Amish store. Next to it is an antique furniture store. How would you like this in your living room?

That is my friend Linda posing for me!

Caught this picture just outside of Fredricksburg.
We stopped at a really neat shop in Mason. It is Mason Country Collectibles.
If you ever get a chance to go, do! They have antiques and awesome metal art. I actually bought 3 items there. A Shirley Temple doll, a gecko and a blue bonnet. I will get pictures of them all for my next post.
Here is one of the things i would have LOVED to bring home with me.
I just love that fountain!
OK that is a basic summary of my time the last…3 months… My plan is to do a real honest to goodness doll post in the next couple of days! Until then,
Hugs Y’all!
