Not much going on today either.
I did get a big pot of soup made and it is cooling on stove. Will bag it up tomorrow.
Tonight I will start making up my med packets.
Bill put card table up and it is handy for doing lots of things.
I am very happy with new laptop. Works much better than my little one.
Roxy is getting so bad about not eating some days I have found that if I put some milk in food she will eat it. I don't think milk is bad for her.
ok will say good night for now.
Hope you had a good day

    A nice quiet day without drama or stress is a good thing. Hope today is peaceful as well.

    interesting to read the comments and what people add to their foods. I have a Yorkie and she eats at night time, but not every night. Fills up through the day on dog treats.

She's healthy looking so I've not been concerned.

    maybe try little pieces of carrots in her food or gravy becareful she don,t gain much weight. i,d check with your vet or get another kind of food and switch every other day.does she still get some walking.she might come back hungry she will eat her food. just a thought.

    Poor Roxy, my dog is bored with his food as well I try to switch his brand up or add a little soup or gravy to his food.
I know dogs do not digest milk very well and can cause gas and other problems, my vet recommends yogurt a couple of tablespoons in the food, however be sure and get the kind that have the active cultures in them because dogs are lactose intolerant. this helps with the digestion.
Have a good evening. Sandy

  Hi Eleni.......
I think that our little furry friends get bored with their dog food. I add raw carrots to their food and also low-fat cottage cheese at times. Both are good for them and add a bit of difference in flavor and texture.
Must run and feed both of them right now. I have 2 pairs of eyes boring a hole in me as I type!!!

Not much going on

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

I was going to take a picture of yard but forgot so I will do that tomorrow.
It has been quiet so far.
Angel and Brianna are heading this way to do some cleaning. Brianna seems to be liking her job at a local restaurant.
I was happy with DWTS results. Altho I am not a big Ricki Lake fan she is doing good as well as Chyna P. The military vet is my favorite and I hope he wins.
I taped BL so I could zip past all the crying etc. I am watching it now.
I really don't have anything to talk about.
Have a good night

  Hi Eleni.........
Loved your cartoon. What would we do without friends. I am glad to count you among mine and I am stuck to you with Super-Glue!

Your Cleome are on the way. I mailed them today along with planting instructions. Let me know when you receive them.

I am tired tonight. I think I am still recovering from our month of company. They are in London now and Ken says that is a good distance away. emoticon

    Boo hoo...I'm missing DWTS...hubs has two other shows taping and that maxs out our Comcast. I wish you could record 3 programs at once...but no luck on that one. Maybe they will have it on Comcast on Demand. I've never gotten into Biggest Loser, it just seems to have so much YELLING in it. I can't contend with that, by evening time I want peace and quiet...even in my t.v. viewing...hee..hee!

Oh...and would you please send Angel and Bri to my house...I would put them right to work and happily pay them for their time! emoticon emoticon

    Ricki Lake is doing a great job. I watched B/L last night so just saw the tail end results of who went home on DWTS.

I am really enjoying B/L this season, so far no drama and hope stays that way.

1st time using web cam on new computer

Tuesday, October 04, 2011


This was much easier than using the camera like I was. It works good on my art table too. It is too dark in living room and I don't want to fool with lighting.
As I said the yard is looking good. They did take down those white things Bill had on fence to keep the dogs from coming thru fence.But didn't put them back so Bill will have to do that.
So far I have had no drama from kids. My grand daughter posted some great pics of Abigail's special day. I will pick out a few to share tomorrow along with pics of yard.
So I will say bye for today. If this works I may start making more v-blogs

Mentally Stressful Day

Monday, October 03, 2011

It has not been one of my better days.
I was not happy with something my daughter put on facebook and said so.Then her sister said something an I wished I had kept my mouth shut. Joy and I texted back and forth at first and then we talked. She was upset because her ex boyfriendwho is slime did try to help find a home for dog. Joy was all in a frenzy saying he was trying to hurt her and all kinds of garbage. I toldher she needed to put the past where it belongs and work on her future. I told her my past made hers and all her siblings put togeter look like nothing. That if I didn't leave it in the past I would be crazy.I told her what was important was to get rid of two of her dogs and get herself straighten out. that the best way to show how much she loves the dogs is find a good home as she can't take good care of them now. I am sure it all went in one ear and out the other even if she was agreeing with me.
Then the well guy came and fixed the mess that others made on sprinkler system . When he left everything was repaired and working. He also said that altho we don't have a lot of water we have plenty for our yard.The guy that put new pump in said we didn't have enough water.
Then I get a knock at door and it is a guy with the sod.Tells me he can't put it in driveway as my driveway is to steep.Then tells me he needs money before he can take it off truck. So I give him his check and he goes back outto see where he can put it.He was coming back to get keys to move Bill's van if needed. Bill had my car as he went to funeral today. After a few minutes i hear a knock and thought it was him.It was guy in charge of doing the yard. He gave me back my $300.
Poor Roxy was in and out of her cage all day. Just too hard to mess with her on days like this.But everything is suppose to be all set for sod to go down tomorrow.
ok the day just got even better. I am cooking Bill flatten chicken breast rolled up with cream cheese inside and covered in salsa. It is in a small glass casserole that I have had for years. Well it now no longer has a lid because I dropped the lid when I went to check it.urrrrr
So I am looking forward to a peaceful evening please.

    Awhhhh I'm sorry you had a bummer day. Those girls are so full of drama you can't help but get upset. I feel really terrible sometimes for not communicating with my daughter from my first marriage, but when she got so heavily involved in drugs I just didn't even KNOW her anymore. For a decade we tried over and over to help her pull herself together..in and out of treatments that cost SO much money. If I had a fraction of that money now we wouldn't be struggling so hard. But you do what you can for your kids as long as you know they appreciate it. When I FINALLY saw the light I realized that no matter WHAT I did...I'd never win out against the drugs NEVER. So I cut the drama cord. My daughter never could keep track of our telephone number even though we've had the same one for 20+ years, she always depended on calling her grandma to get it. When her grandmother passed away she no longer had anyone that she could call to get our number. She never keeps the same number so we've lost touch and it may be just as well. She always kept me on a tightrope of panic...so I know exactly what you are dealing with. I know your girls love you and that you are their anchor, but you are only human and are trying to stay strong for yourself and Bill and Roxy of course.

There is no good answer when it comes to family..you always love them in spite of themselves and you always pray that they will find happiness. I'm praying for your kids, the same way I pray for my daughter...someday I hope she finds some peace and we can reunite for a mother/daughter relationship that won't send me to my grave prematurely. Big sigh! emoticon

Hopefully today is going much smoother for you. I wish that your girls would think of you when they are in the midst of all of their drama. It isn't good for you to have to go through all of this.
My company is gone, but now my Mom is in need of some help. I really did seem to get more done when I was working full time!!!

    I wish these kids would just grow up already. I was a bad pet owner when I was younger it's so embarrassing. I thought they were around for my pleasure, and I have a reputation for getting pets then finding them new homes. Now I finally have 2 that I swear somethimes they would be better off somewhere else, but I love them too much. Go figure.

    We had some heavy duty Facebook drama in my family last week. It's one of those things that I won't understand but can't not be on for the sake of knowing what everyone is doing (if that makes sense.)

It's horrible to see what our kids say so publicly except then when you realize everyone's kids are being just as dumb it's so many no one else probably cares. I'm glad there was no such thing as email or facebook when I was their ages. That would have been horrible!!!

Hope your evening is peaceful!!!

Pics of our Special Visitors

Sunday, October 02, 2011

We had a nice visit from two of our girls this afternoon. They brought supper and that was so much nicer than a restaurant.Could enjoy the visit more. I wasn't feeling well earlier so it was much easier for me.
I put all pics on facebook but here are a few favorites. The stars are Heidi,Landon,Heather and of course Roxy was everywhere.My favorite is Landon playing in sand. All boy







It was a very nice visit. Did brighten my day

  Hi Eleni.........
How thoughtful of the girls to bring supper. And what a wonderful way to use the Gazebo. It looks like a good time was had by all.

I am moving slow today........still tired from all of the activities during the month our company was here. They left yesterday for Ken's youngest brother's home in South Eastern Wisconsin. Then they leave for Europe on Wednesday evening for 22 days. They mentioned wanting to come back here when they returned from Europe, but Ken didn't encourage it, so hopefully,they will continue on to Oregon. It is just too tiring to have company for an entire month!!!

Take care,
Patti
