Life goes on....

March 19th, 2010 at 03:26 pm

Today was payday and along with my automatic deposit form was another check for 3 days of jury duty. I had completely forgotten about this after I had told my boss I didn't get paid, that was what 6-8 weeks ago? Anyway nice suprise.

I also called my comp carrier to find out what is going on with my shoulder claim and that I have not received any disability pay. I have been on half time for about 10 weeks.

My FIL fell Wednesday and ended up getting flown out of our area because we have no neurosurgeon coverage here. Luckily his "bleed" healed itself and he was discharged from the hospital the next day. DH had to drive to where he was flown and is driving his parents home tomorrow since his father needed to stay in the area another 48 hours just in case. He is 85 and stepped wrong off his tractor hauling horse manure to his garden!

However, now DH can go to Home Depot and take advantage of 26 cents brick type blocks for our garden edge and go to Trader Joe's and get some 2 Buck Chuck for cooking.

It's a warm beautiful day here on the North Coast of California, but the clouds are moving in tomorrow.

My tulips are in full bloom and there are bumble bees buzzing close to the ground driving my little Jack Russell nuts. I think he might be a little afraid of them!

I thought I had killed this peony last year, but it is almost ready to bloom.

And lastly, my Azalea is in full bloom. It is 1 year old.

Oops forgot to add, I added $1000.00 to my retirement funds today too.

    Pretty flowers. Smile
    My dad was telling me yesterday about starting to get his garden ready to plant. While here in Texas, we may be getting snow tomorrow night! (In the mid 60's right now, so hard to believe it could snow ... but that's Texas for ya!)

    Beautiful flowers! I used to grow peonies when I lived in Sonoma County. They do well where it gets cold enough in the winter, but it's too warm to grow them now that we live in Silicon Valley.

    That's great that your FIL is on the mend.

    Y'all are so nice. Planted pink begonia tubers in hanging baskets today. I hope they grow!

    Those are some lovely plants! I really glad that your FIL's fall and head bleed were resolved and didn't lead to problems... that is really scary that there is no neurosurgeon available close by! Does insurance cover the transportation in these instances, or how does that work?
