They call me mellow yellow

Sunday, October 25, 2009

It was just a cold mellow day here. A Sunday turning to winter. Rained hard most of the day. I stayed under a blanket.
Hoping tomorrow brings sunshine.
I rested today.
No exercise.

A no rain lovely day....

Saturday, October 24, 2009

I was even out in it savoring every minute that I could grab the sunshine.
I spent the morning at the river with my ducks, birds, geese and seagulls. Do you know Seagulls are greedy little rats with wings. LOL They swoop in quickly and grab the food i leave the ducks and geese and fly bak out so quickly.

I am taking all of your advice and I ahve a Dr. appt. on Wednesday. I ahve been having some apin in neck, shoulder and upper back. The other guys insurance has been dealing with robert but the guy that hit our car is not answering the phone to his own insurance agent. he's in hiding. No fault insurance here in Oregon kind of sucks big time. Even being in the wrong place at the wrong time gets you a point and your rates raised. Last year robert ahd his car hit on the side by an illegal who didn't ahve a license or the car registered. roberts rates went up. So I'm having my back and shoulder looked at and Xrayed and insurance is going to deal with it.

Enjoy your evening and Sunday, friends!

    Debbie,
I would love to see your ducks and birds. This morning I was treated to a lovely site of several birds all taking baths in my birdbath. One big one came and took over but it loves it baths. I hope you feel better soon -- that is the important thing.

    I'm glad you are going to the doctor. You cannot be too careful. That is a bummer about the insurance. But let them fight it out and you take care of you.

Hugs,
Marty

    Sounds like you had a wonderful time out enjoying nature with the ducks, geese, and birds. Wonderful to be out in the sunshine :) So glad that you are seeing the dr. about your pain. NY is no-fault, too. Take gentle care of yourself, my friend.

    Debbie, so glad you enjoyed a fantastic morning with your ducks, birds, geese and seagulls. What a way to enjoy the sunny day!!! However I am happier yet that you have an appointment to see the doctor on Wednesday for your neck, shoulder and upper back. Praying for your for complete healing...may God touch you and hold you close as your body heals properly. Pennsylvania is a no fault state also...but at least our medical bills are coverage even if it is under our own policy...too many times the other person doesn't have but only the minimum coverage with no medical. So glad no one was seriously hurt though.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

Rainy Days

Thursday, October 22, 2009

We probably won't see unshine until next June.
It's typical Oregon weather here. Gray skies. Cool and damp and rainy.

Monday we were in an accident in the afternoon.
It wasn't Roberts fault. A man with a trailer hitch on the back of his car backed up from a light just as Robert was pulling into a gas station and hit his little red sporty car. The guys insurance is going to pay for it. Over $2,000.00 in damages and a car rental for us for a week. I am fine but had a little whiplash in neck from the jerk. They were about 3 or 4 mph but this car we ahve seems like it's made of cardboard.

Yesterday afternoon I spent about 3 hours at Ashley's apartment and ahd fun with her over there while Robert was running errands.

Courage to start and willingness to keep everlasting at it are the
requisites for success.

    Sorry about Robert's little car. However it can be replaced...you and Robert can not!!! Please get your neck checked...don't let it go as it could just get worse. Better to be safe now than sorry later. Praying for you.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

    I'll agree with those who say you should have your neck checked. Whiplash, even when it seems to go away, can cause problems in your back later.
As for the rain... well, today was beautifully sunny! That's what gets me through, those occasional sunny days in the rainy season.

    If you think you have whiplash, check it out with the doctor. Remember I was in an accident in August and still having off/on pain. Take care!!

    So sorry about the accident. Hope you feel better soon! Glad no one was seriously hurt. It's a beautiful warm, sunny day here in upstate NY. I'm soaking it all up because it won't last long. I could never live in the NW. Too much rain for me. I struggle enough here in the NE.

Terrific night!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

It was fun! But I honestly can't say much for the food. We ahd like 5 choices to choose from at "The Old Spaghetti Factory" In Portland. robert and I chose Spaghetti w/meat sauce. It came with salad that had pre-dressing and it tasted like that good seasons kind you make in a cruet at home. Ashley had Chicken Alfredo and I tried hers and it was pretty good. I also feel it was over priced at $15.00 a person. We won't be eating out anytime soon there. The service was excellent though.

It was a full house. Every table was full. there were even people standing. We did pretty good with the auction, too.


People who ahd vision had to eat their meal with glasses like these on. uide dogs glued to the lenses. this is my lovely Ashley.

The most expensive item was tickets to a symphony show at a threater i think that went for $300.00 and there was a nice hand painted paddle donated by Larry who is an artist and on my team. $200.00, and a picture he donated for 150.00. Robert outbid everyone on my basket so there are lots of gift cards in there that we got and he paid $60.00 on that and it is well over a $100.00 value.

I was asked to come up front and talk about what I collected and got them a laughing with my choosey words. Mei Wong was the Auctioneer.


She hugged me when I got up front and I greeted her with "Mei, your bra is apdded!" I explained what i ahd gathered together for my night. A contributon from Portlands locala rtist and Roberts daughter Vanessa Lee 's fancy piece of art a cerramic candy dish went for $65.00, a double fifth paddle bag for a paddle, a orange and a black large towels I said great for your kinky haloween costumes, a new brita water pitcher with 2 filters, a scented candle, 2 gift cards from subway sandwiches, a gift card from Red Robin Restaurant, a gift card from Target, 2 certificates for free whole pies from Shari's. I did the most work. But i got all that back! Oh and a free haircut, blow dry and style at a shop.

I'm waiting to hear how we did with the monies!

Tonight is the night!!!

Monday, October 19, 2009

I am excited. Can't ou tell?
This is my Dragon Boat Teams largest fundraiser. I have helped in the Party Lite fundraiser and earned a nice $100.00 for my teams trip to China which should take place in June. Tonight is a Blindfold Spaghetti Feed at the Old Spaghetti Factory. After the dinner which is costing everyone $15.00 with salad, Pasta dish, beverage and dessert we will then ahve a much anticipated auction. All new items, certificates, gift cards, etc.

I picked up last night a very beautiful piece of art that Vanessa (Roberts daughter) did it is a cerramic candy dish Valued at $65.00 at her Galleries. she is a well known local artist in the Portland area.

I have obtained a gift basket from Trader Joes filled with groceries that I will be picking up soon.
