That was the Day that Was!

Friday, July 11, 2014

I am again thankful that Thursday has been completed. I bottomed out yesterday and felt as though I didn't even have enough energy to breathe. Lasted longer this time than usual. I finished the quilt I was working on and have another one to get started. I am glad that stress is over.

Planning to go on a little outing today with DD and DGD. We always have a great time. This will cheer us all up as we have had a rough week. Hopefully, we will find some bargains at a local sale.

Have a great day to all who travel here!

Row, row, row machine, gentle on the knees

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily out beneath a tree!


Read an article this past week on how a rowing machine is low impact, but a full body workout. On Saturday, we found one at a yard sale -- very used, no do-dads -- for only five dollars. We sat it up outside under a tree in the yard. I did just a few minutes today. It is not easy! I will work my way up to more (hopefully). If it doesn't bother my body weaknesses, it should be good for me.

Still have my 17 minute workout to try, too.

Around 2 AM, Thursday and Saturday morning

Saturday, July 05, 2014

we were awakened by two different incidents. On Thursday morning shortly before two AM, a car's headlights came streaming into our bedroom window. It was open and the dogs tied outside were going crazy. The car backed out of the driveway, but a little while later, came back and did the same thing. DH got up to see what was going on and said it was our neighbor. Then, the drove up and down the road shining a flashlight along the road and up our driveway and in the trees near by. Then the car stopped at the end of our driveway and a young woman got out (don't know how she is connected to the neighbor) and came walking up the driveway with a flashlight. All the while, our dogs are going crazy and we, of course, could not get any sleep. When she got to our porch steps, she reached down and picked up a small dog on our steps. It was hers and that is what all the commotion was about. She called 'Oscar' a name and apologized to us as we were now looking out the window at her and I said, "Oh, it's a dog!" It was so hard to get back to sleep after that.

Then last night, we thought the 'boomers' were done before midnight. But, not so! About 2:30 AM, they started again and went on for quite awhile. Hard to sleep again. I can only hope and pray that tonight it will be different as we need some rest. Filling in for Pastor tomorrow and if no one comes that operates the sound room, DH will have to fill in. That will be nerve wracking for him because he does not like to do stuff on computers.



Have a great night and glorious Sunday, All!

    For over a week we've heard the distant explosions. It just echoes in the country...but too many trees to see the highlights in the distance. Might be making the dogs more nervous too...mine is. Be blessed

    Last night our booms died out at midnight, thank goodness. Today was a special day. My sister bought tickets for the Pirates - Phillies game here in Pittsburgh to celebrate my Godson and Nephew Mike's 25th birthday coming up on July 10th. It was a close game with a sell out attendance. There were a lot of Philly fans. I will say Philly fans are wonderful people!

If I could I would send Mike your way! His minor in college was theater, he enjoys operating sound room computers! He would be glad to help!

I'll pray that if your Dh does wind up filling in operating the sound room, God Blesses him while he is doing so!

'Tis Thursday, Thankfully!

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Looking forward to a cooler weekend. The days have been sweltering! Sitting in front of the fan to try to cool off. Not much luck. So glad to go on an errand yesterday with DD in her air conditioned vehicle. The air isn't working in ours and I have an errand to run in it today. emoticon


Had a great time on Monday with the grands. When I asked them if they had a good time, my DGS made my day when he said, "I had a very good time!" Monday evening we watched DGD in her baseball game. We couldn't stay until the end. As it was we got home around 10:30 and that was quite late enough to get to bed to get up at 5:30.

Got some diatomaceous earth yesterday to tone down the ant population in the yard. It is so difficult to even sit out without them finding us. Hope this makes things better for awhile.

Taking some things to the church for the town wide sale on Saturday. Our family reunion is Saturday, too. Guess I could try to juggle my time between the two of them. We'll see.

They won't envy this position . . .

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Trying to keep up with the Joneses is something humans still try to do.

Here's a position that is usually not coveted: On your knees before God Almighty.

May we bow our heads, bend our knees, and pray for others who have needs.

Have a blessed Sunday!
