Granny is having a senior moment,

Hello All.

So, it turns out I am not so good at multitasking.
Put a pot of soup on.
Checked it.
Great the potatoes are nice and soft.
But, wait.
Why isn’t it my usual nice thick soup.
Forgot to put in the soup mix and barley.

In my defense I wrote some letters for the complex.
Watered my plants.
Read some blogs.
While the soup was on the go.
Added them now and the pressure cooker is doing it’s thing.
Hold thumbs for me.

While the power was off from ten until two, I drove around the complex.
Met a new owner.
Lovely young guy.
Can’t have too many pleasant people in the complex.
They counteract the five who are really unpleasant.
Guess you can’t have it all your way.

There are so many REALLY great people here.
Am making too many friends.
Is that possible?
Just very time consuming.
M is not a social soul.
This sums him up perfectly.



  1. No, you can’t have too many friends! Oooh, believe me I have those senior moments too and I am only 50! OOps, 51. 🙂
    LOL on the meme. Have a great day!

  2. Laughing hard at this last bit, Granny. Thank you!

  3. I’m glad you managed to rescue the soup, Granny. Now, it’s got barley and vegetables in it, it’ll be a whole lot tastier. I’ll come for tea (if that’s okay with you!?). I love barley in soups – it gives a different texture to it that is really yummy. I used to have a pressure cooker – I’ve no idea what happened to it – it just vanished one day. I probably sold it or gave it away when I was first on my own thinking I’ll never use it again. Now, I have a slow cooker. The trick with that is for me to get up early enough in the morning (not my strong point) to get everything into it in time for me to eat it at dinner/tea time. I quite often have my main meal in the middle of the day, so there’s no chance of a slow-cooked meal at that time.

    I’m so glad you’re surrounded by lovely people – you deserve to be. I don’t think you can have too many friends – it’s just keeping up with them all I have difficulty with. I love your quote at the bottom about throwing the visitors out. It did make me laugh. Xxx 🌞💞

    • My electric pressure cooker is my favourite cooking utensil. I have a slow cooker but never use it. Maybe it is time to declutter.

  4. You’re right, friends are time consuming, but boy… do I need and appreciate them… and vice versa. In Afrikaans praat ons van: “Ek is nie net ‘n mooi-weer’s vriend nie”. Ons het juis ons steunpilaar vriende nodig tydens die storms.

    • Agreed Elsabe. One can never have too much love in your life.

  5. I hope the soup turned out ok, I don’t have any friends, so I don’t have to worry about visitors 😊

    • Soup was fine. Newsflash. You have one in Africa now!

      • Thanks, much appreciated
