Tired Saturday

Saturday, August 01, 2009

I just thought I was tired yesterday. I spent over 2 hours or more potting and repotting plants. I got all 10 veggie plants potted and redid a lot of my flower plants etc. Bill helped me set an area all set up to work from.Had everything within reach and no bending to do. He even brought a fan outside and set it up. I jumped in pool when I finished and boy that felt good. I still have a few more to do but I want to use regular potting soil for the Christmas cactus. I have 2 pots of desert roses out front that has to be split apart. So at least I feel like I got something done today. And this is what Bill brought home this morning.Isn't he the best.
Have done good with eating so far. Will rest the rest of the day.

    Hi Eleni. I am back from vocation. Glad to see you are good and able to do so much job.

I did care for my plants yesterday. They did not have water for seven days, there were no one who watered them. SO I did a lot of work yesterday. All they are good.
I love your flowers. It were my wedding flowers.

Bill is very good. I love how do you feel. I was on vocation and Lev also was very nice to me. He bought all what I wish to have. It was difficult because our lagging got broken. There were a lot of small bags, all his hands were busy, but he did not want me to take anything but camera bag. It was cool to photo him caring all our bags. emoticon

    Your Bill is in the same league as my Larry! What did we ever do to deserve such men? If I had only known when I was going through hell over a guy...that one day all my dreams and more would come true! Give him a hug for me...

Sounds like you got a lot done. Be sure and count your fitness.

Busy Friday

Friday, July 31, 2009

Well I am tuckered out.We went to Home Depot and I got plants for another garden.Tried to get ones on list for here. Then Bill found some stuff too so we ended up spending wayyyyyyyy too much there.
Then it was off to grocery store.We were in Bill's mini van and it was packed so he dropped me off and went home to make space for groceries. The 2 storage bins Bill got took up most of the room.
But we made it and I have most of groceries up.I have to rewrap the chicken for freezer.
Now I have to make my meds up.That will take at least 2 hours as I try to make them for 3 weeks at a time as I hate making all the packets up. I had to wait for some refills to come in.
Bill went out and checked the plant at causeway and it still hasn't bloomed.
I am going to try to repot my christmas cactus tomorrow and get other stuff in pots.I think Bill is going to help me.
I tried to talk my grandson into coming down but that didn't work.He lives 1 1/2 hours away.
I have decided to keep my Norton and just get the fan replaced.
I am not sure how clear this picture will be but here is what I call a teenage cardinal.

    Cool Cardinal.
I love Home Depot. When I get there I always take too much. I do not have room for flowers, our app is too dark for them. But I love to have green house. I wish I have garden as you do.

Good luck , and take it easy, do not do all job in one day. Really it is not good idea. emoticon

    Very interesting cardinal. I love checking your photos out. I don't think I have ever seen a cardinal that looks like that. Have a great weekend.

    The cardinal is so cute! My husband has seen a cardinal eating out of our feeders but I have yet to see it.

More plants? You're getting good with all your plants!

For some reason I'm not getting the e-mails about your blogs. If I miss one it's not because I don't love you! emoticon emoticon

I tried to take a picture of a couple of hummingbirds who were outside my window for the longest time, but THAT was a blurry photo.

    Sounds like a busy day. It's always nice to get things done though and usually much easier to stay on track when you have just done the shopping and have lots of healthy goodies to choose from.
Neat looking bird! Even with your busy day you're finding time to appreciate the beauty around you.

Really can't think of anything to write. I have a computer guy coming Monday to work on my main computer.This is my little notebook one. The guy is telling me I need to take Norton off and put AVG on.I have had Norton for a long time and have never gotten a virus. He claims Norton is not as good as it was.He also said McAfee wasn't as good as the avg. What do you guys have.
I have done better with eating today so far.Scale isn't moving yet.I am also having a lot of fluid so I am not real sure where I am. Hope you all had a good day.

    My son is computer guy. When I have problems he is around. I do not know what do I use. He does not like Microsoft. He usually check up my desk top when he gets in NY.

Very glad you are eating better. emoticon

    Norton is excellent as long as your settings are good. If you have it and like using
Norton, then just have the tecnician "tweak" it some so the settings are more user friendly.

I have had both and actually feel more confident in Norton.

Video blog from my pool

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

I promised one so here it is.I can't believe I took my camera into the pool.I couldn't see too much in viewfinder but it looked ok.Messy patio but it proves I did go into the pool.
I am having trouble with my computer so I have to call someone tomorrow. I have no idea who is good and who isn't.It looks like it needs a new fan for starters. Oh well I will hope for the best.
Hope you all had a good day.
I have done much better with eating today and even did some walking and swimming in pool.

Thanks for coming over to my blog today. It has been busy around here and I've not visited my friends here at Spark. Sooooo

I stopped by to see you first. So glad I did, I love your blog!! What an amazing pool, steps, rails and all. Contain gardens are wonderful, I've enjoyed looking at your plants and statues. I had a big old happy face on while I watched your video. What fun it was to watch. Did you see me waving back to you as you waved?

Have a good afternoon in that pool if you go out today. The weekend is right around the corner. I hope you have a good one.

This was a fun video! It made me happy to see all your plants that love being your plants (unlike my plants that look sad and thirsty) and it made me want to jump in and walk with you.
Thanks! What a gorgeous day!

Late Tuesday

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

I waited til late to see how I did today.I am happy to say I did much better than yesterday. I even went in pool for awhile.I walked 6 laps around edge of pool and swam 10 slow laps.A lap is to end of pool and back.
Nothing else new.I am planning to do another video blog tomorrow with a little twist. If nothing else you should get a laugh.
Thanks for all the encouragement yesterday.I hate posting down beat blogs but that goes with the territory.I do try to keep them to a minimum.
Hope you all had a great day and I will talk to you tomorrow emoticon

    Do not try to minimum anything. If someone do not want to look at to the end then we can just stop it to look at. So it is not your concern. I love your videos. I try to post mine but it does not work yet.

I can say that I am not model for photo or video, but you well see me in everyone videos DH taped. I try to be around and get into sight.
