I cleaned out the car, my purse, all my bags I carry with me, desk drawers, ...just anything that I could get into. I finished turning the heel of a sock I'm knitting and actually left the clinic on time. In my bags I found a roll of quarters, 5.00 +worth of loose change and a walmart card that had 33.oo left on it. I filled the car up with gas and smiled. The housekeeper got to the clinic early and brought me a huge bag of... Wed, 30 Jul 2014 22:35:08 EST Tues 7/29 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5749216 AUGH!!! Lost a night in the garden! <BR> HALLELUJAH!!!! A neighbor brought me 5 stands to put poles through in order to show quilts for my quilt shows!!! I am SO BLESSED!!! His wife has been to almost all of my programs and has been such a huge supporter. Now this!!! He built me 5 stable poles that have holes drilled through them for rods to be placed. The rods fit pole to pole and I can hang quilts over the rods for display. When I get the barn built I can use them for room dividers. I'm jus... Tue, 29 Jul 2014 21:05:46 EST Mon Jul 28 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5748579 Day is done. Work was slow with 3 nurses in the clinic. I was done on time and got a little shopping done before coming home. I was able to get a little flower cart painted and start the cap layer on the well. I dug out more rock and dirt from the old herb garden, did a little weeding, and worked on labeling the plants. If I get up early enough in the morning I ought to be able to get the tags out on the rest of them. I'm making a garden book with pictures so that I can see the changes over t... Mon, 28 Jul 2014 22:37:40 EST Sun Jul 27 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747791 Church, lunch, nap, home, a little marking the plants in the garden, working on the afghan, and off to bed. Love a routine. Sun, 27 Jul 2014 22:00:09 EST Sat Jul 26 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747140 Spent about 5-6 hours in the garden today. It was great in the morning, cool and breezy...but the afternoon brought heavy humid heat and I gave up after about 2 hours. The pseudo well is ready for the capstones to go around the edge now. I have the old herb garden about dismantled and cleaned out. The new walk is dug, the gravel laid, and the initial layer of sand is down. I was able to get the log pieces up to the burn pile with a lot of other brush that will be in the next fire. I started a... Sat, 26 Jul 2014 20:30:36 EST Fri Jul 25 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5746644 Had a lot of running to do this morning but was in the yard for 6 hours. Got a felled tree moved, part of a log, dug rock out of the old herb garden and used it to build up the pseudo well, then put more dirt into it for a brace. Dug out more of the new walk and got a load of gravel down before dark. Got a bit of trimming done too as well as a load of tree limbs cut out. the closest neighbor took care of the burn pile today and another neighbor brought us fresh veggies. What a blessing! I wa... Fri, 25 Jul 2014 22:27:31 EST Thurs 7/24/14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5745960 Made it to DD's right on time. GS slept until 8 and after breakfast we played until about 1030 and lo and behold the door opened and DD and her husband got home. She was groggy but able to walk and decided not to stay the day to recover completely and with the doctor's blessing came home to her own bed. She snuggled in right away to sleep the rest of the morning away. Sister and I had straightened the house (no problem as she and hubby are neat freaks) and baby was dressed and ready to go. He... Thu, 24 Jul 2014 21:35:30 EST Wed Jul 23 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5744994 Ended up in the emergency room with sister last night. She had a severe reaction to 'something' in the yard and turned bright red, hives, rashes, too sick to sit up, and woke me up at 1 am to show me and let me know that she had tried bathing, ointments and just didn't know what to do. We went to the er and she was treated and I tried to call in this morning but ended up coming in for CPR classes and to cover for another nurse who was going to a funeral. The phones have been slow and I'm basi... Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:28:09 EST Tues Jul/22 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5744370 Was able to finish the center garden and get the iris up and lilies down in the area. Still a wheelbarrow full of lilies to plant. Deadheaded roses, dug out all but about 2 feet of the walk, collected a barrow of humus and turned the log, pulled out more rock for the well and laid it...filling it in with dirt as I go, stopped by and picked up another load of the marble (that DD informs me is polished granite), hauled off 2-3 loads of rubbish to the fill ditch, and worked on the afghan(s). Wen... Tue, 22 Jul 2014 16:37:33 EST Mon Jul 21 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5743538 Decided to hold the mowing for another few days. I have too much to finish in the garden that will be delayed even longer if it's wet. Beautiful day out...I'm still at work. Rain comes in tomorrow and will last several days. i should be able to finish the afghan this week and have another one started. Gotta stay busy. running out of time. Too much life to live to just sit and waste my days. <BR> Be blessed all and just keep Sparkin'!! Mon, 21 Jul 2014 15:23:00 EST Sun Jul 21 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5743049 Worship in the morning and family in the afternoon. Came home and went back to the garden. We have rain coming in and I was torn between mowing and working on the labor part of the area. Ended up doing the hand work. I pruned the broken branches out of the wild plum trees and we took about 4 or 5 loads up to the burn pile. I dug up a stellar de oro bed and replanted it with hostas and a few other cluster plants. Sister seemed to like it. I took all the new lilies to the center garden and fini... Sun, 20 Jul 2014 23:18:52 EST Sat Jul 19 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5742389 Busy day. took the ox yoke to the Amish to see if they can restore it. did the usual post office, bank chores and actually got lost on the way back to town. I'm not used to all the back roads up in the hills around our area and made a wrong turn. Just keep driving and you'll end up somewhere. And we did...back to home base, picked up sister and left for the lily farm. found some beautiful plants, ate out, dropped off Honey and came home to work in the garden. I found a tiller that my dad had ... Sat, 19 Jul 2014 22:34:53 EST Fri Jul 18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5741764 Long day at work. We went to an artist's reception tonight and then out to try out a new restaurant. I'm ready to chill out and get to bed earlier than usual. Be blessed all and just keep Sparkin'! Fri, 18 Jul 2014 21:54:08 EST Thurs Jul 18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5741118 Thought I would get off early today but no such luck. Had a nail in a tire and went to have it fixed after work and then stopped to get a load of scrap marble. I was able to keep it sorted when I got home and unloaded and am even more excited about the fireplace/firepit area above the center garden. I then focused on weeding and replanting the iris beds. I was also able to get another few feet of the side garden walk bed dug out. I hauled humus from the rotted trees to the wildflower garden b... Thu, 17 Jul 2014 23:26:31 EST Wed Jul 16 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5740432 Home from the party. Had DD mark all the things she wanted and took care of her birthday for her. Easy!! GS SO wanted attention. I took him for a walk and we picked flowers for his Mama and threw rocks in the creek. There were 2 little girls there who were about 7 years old and they ignored him and hurt his feelings because he couldn't run as fast as they could and couldn't keep up when they went up and down the stairs. He started to cry and I asked if it hurt his feelings because they went t... Wed, 16 Jul 2014 23:42:08 EST Tues Jul 15 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5739655 Took the day off from the garden. All I did was harvest more of the wild plums for my little mother. I'll drop them off in the morning. I stopped and gave honey a haircut and then met sister and we all went to dinner. I've worked on the granny afghan tonight and that's about it. Tomorrow night I get to go to a party with DD and look at things I don't want and buy things for her that she doesn't need. Sweet. <BR> Work is what it is. Glad I have a job. <BR> Be blessed all and just keep Sparki... Tue, 15 Jul 2014 22:07:39 EST Mon Jul 14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738721 I'm at work and have used my breaks to keep going on things that I'm trying to accomplish at the house. i took a load into the storage bin on am break and at lunch went to the ACE store to get a tube for my wheelbarrow tire. I have sorted out papers between calls and walkins and feel that it has been pretty steady. <BR> We had severe storms yesterday that lasted until this morning and are due to start again this afternoon. Knocked out the TV and played with the phones and computer. The winds... Mon, 14 Jul 2014 14:51:04 EST Sun Jul 13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738224 Long lovely day. God is good. Be blessed all and keep Sparkin'!! Sun, 13 Jul 2014 22:56:33 EST Sat Jul 12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5737594 Had another marathon day. <BR> Went for a massage this morning and then stayed in the yard for over 10 hours. Back did not like that. Ibuprofen is my friend tonight. <BR> It's been a productive day. A teen came and helped me get caught up. The marble is now sorted and ready for more deliveries. The pseudo well is reconstructed. I was able to put in 2 accession walks and dug some more on the next stretch of brick walks. I also finished a transplant some flowers, trimmed bushes and harvested... Sat, 12 Jul 2014 23:06:34 EST Fri Jul 12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5737020 Long day. Had to stay over an hour + to finish up. Last minute walk ins and too many unexpected's going on. Not pleased...but glad to be able to go in next week to a clean slate. <BR> New nurse is coming in...so that will take a lot of pressure off in the long run. <BR> Got home and headed for the garden. The Habiscus is in full bloom and so in love with itself, showing off like that! I am over 50% done with the center plot ...it had to be cleared so that lilies can be moved to the space..I... Fri, 11 Jul 2014 23:20:17 EST Thurs Jul 10 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5736106 At work but the brain is just not working. I still have at least 12 patients to contact and chart on and I just want to lay down and sleep. Can't do it! Will go home tonight and finish the rest of the cellar door, work on cleaning out the car some more and maybe find some other little thing on my long 'to do' list that I can at least get started on. Honey has an elder's meeting tonight and I think I'll just take sister out for supper. <BR> Be blessed all and just keep Sparkin'!! Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:01:15 EST Wed Jul 9 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5735646 I am just warn out. I only got half the cellar door scraped down and painted and washed the inside of my car windows. I think I go through this periodically, but what a drag when it comes on. Couldn't find the snake tonight. Gonna go to bed anyway. <BR> Be blessed all. Keep Sparkin'! Wed, 9 Jul 2014 22:14:36 EST Tues Jul 8 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5734916 Decided to just take the night off. No nothing! And so help me...we have a big snake in the house. Now I've got to figure out how to get it out. Yuck! glad I'm not afraid of them. got in through the insulation upstairs. Ah life! Just so fun <BR> Keep Sparkin'!! Tue, 8 Jul 2014 22:34:43 EST Mon Jul 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733678 Preparing for tonight and so glad to have the opportunity. <BR> subject will be a man's role in the church community. Have my scriptures and ideas and was so inspired by the people I've heard speaking over the last week. This will be like a day off for me since I won't be working in the garden. we have storms moving in and I'm hoping we'll get back to town tonight before they hit. <BR> Be blessed all and just keep Sparkin'!! Mon, 7 Jul 2014 09:56:13 EST Sun Jul 6 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733402 Long good day. <BR> Got a little more touch up painting done before dressing for church. Had a good service then took a dry run drive to the town I'll be speaking at tomorrow night. Glad we did. got lost and had to get directions, but found the way and it will take less stress and time to drive there tomorrow night. <BR> Came home tonight and finished the mowing. I'll be able to focus on garden lay out for awhile. This has been a busy weekend, but I got caught up on things I've ignored for ... Sun, 6 Jul 2014 22:25:08 EST Sat Jul 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732788 Another busy day. Finished more of the painting, trimmed most of the areas around the house, cut over half of the property, weeded, worked on crafts when I came in to rest, and did all the little things you do when passing through a yard that needs work. While I waited for the grass to dry, I went to the bank, to get gas for the mower, and to pick up more supplies. 12 hour days are becoming my norm on the weekends. <BR> I can hear the booming and cracking sound of fireworks coming from the d... Sat, 5 Jul 2014 22:43:33 EST Fri July 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732229 Hope everyone had a great day. <BR> The Lord is good. Honey tells me that he collapsed around 10:30 last night and was in bed all morning. Up a minute and then back to bed to sleep some more. After weeks of not sleeping and being concerned over so many issues, including his own health, he slept without a hitch. this is a gift from the Lord. Now just waiting on a call from the specialist. God has this under control. <BR> I was in the yard over 12 hours and got a lot of the side jobs completed.... Fri, 4 Jul 2014 23:50:18 EST Jul 3 Thurs http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5731577 What a day. Went to the neurosurgeon with Honey. He is sending us to a spine surgeon who specializes in deformities and severe cases. Honey has 2 vertebra that have collapsed. the cord is compressed and in one spot is completely obscured. It has caused semi paralysis in his right leg and increasing pain. I asked lots of questions, Honey just sat in shock looking at the actual MRI pics of what I had sketched out on paper, but I think he finally understood the consequences of delaying care any ... Thu, 3 Jul 2014 22:47:19 EST Wed Jul 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730936 Walk is finished except for the final trim and dirt fill. I'll get the dirt as I dig out another path. <BR> Rained today. <BR> Heading for bed. honey goes to the neurologist in the morning. Stress .... <BR> Be blessed all Wed, 2 Jul 2014 22:46:20 EST Tues Jul 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730085 Stopped by a storm. Only got 1 load of bricks down, a little dead heading, a few shovels of fill dirt packed around the new walk, and recycled an old log into a planter...did a little weeding and a sudden severe wind hit and I ran for the house. <BR> Work was slow and steady. On lunch break I came home to let the dog out and ran into the Amish workers who are building a barn for my neighbor. I have an old pull that needs new wood put into it...it's the harness that fits over a double ox tea... Tue, 1 Jul 2014 20:30:43 EST Mon Jun 30 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729197 And so ends the first few weeks of summer. Everyone is back to routine and I'm at my desk and bored to tears with this pressure cooker. Had inspection today and boss 'borrowed' my heater. It's 90+ outside and 60 something in the building. I'm wearing a sweatshirt jacket and still cold. I emptied my room and they never even stuck their head in the door. And that's how it goes with our company. Keeps the staff alert, but what a pain. I'm heading home and out to the garden. I hope to at least ge... Mon, 30 Jun 2014 16:15:10 EST Sun Jun 29 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728675 Back to work in the morning. I had a good day today with the usual routine. Honey is nervous over his pending appointment with the neurologist. GS is back into his routine with his parents and reported a fun with with Maggie (me), and I am tired but happy. <BR> I stayed on my program last week and lost and kept off the crazy weight I've been fighting for the last few months. So I decided to continue the vegan diet this week too. I would dance if I could just get into the next 10 down by Augus... Sun, 29 Jun 2014 23:07:56 EST Sat Jun 28 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728043 My last day with GS ends. We had a rough night, he missed his parents so much...but we made it. We watched the same movie ....again ....and went to lunch, packed the car, went to the play place for an hour or so, back to his house , napped and then to his other grandparents. We were there about 30 minutes and sister and I were ready to come on home, and my little man went and put his shoes on and announced that he was going with Maggie. Could you ask for more? I yell and dance and demand and ... Sat, 28 Jun 2014 23:19:55 EST Fri Jun 27 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727340 Another wonderful day with the little man. we went to a play facility to get rid of some energy. He's had a very busy week and by nap time was out like a light. I'm spending the night at his house and then delivering him to his other grandparents tomorrow afternoon for the rest of the weekend. <BR> I got a text from my boss this afternoon with a 'heads up' type of warning that the company big wigs will be at the clinic on Mon. I cleared out my office as though I'd never be back on the day I ... Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:25:51 EST Thurs Jun 26 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5726717 I'm a bit frustrated tonight . My stomach is getting worse with the 'fresh' veggies and I'm just feeling sick. went to the zoo today and spent 3 hours walking, loved seeing GS react to the animals. We did not have time to see the entire zoo, but we saw everything he wanted to look at and rode the carousel several times. He was more excited about that than the animals. Out to eat with him and DD tonight and after missing his nap and not getting a complete night's sleep last night, he was quite... Thu, 26 Jun 2014 22:51:39 EST Wed Jun 25 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725954 Just not moving well today. It's hot and humid out but I've just felt drained all day. I was able to get the walk completed up to the last yard that needs to be laid and should be able to finish it before I go back to work. I cut the upper field and dug the humus and mulch out of the logs and will till that into the garden next week. I just wish I had more energy...I'm just wiped out. Well...off to bed and up to head for the zoo with GS tomorrow. God is good Wed, 25 Jun 2014 22:20:11 EST Tues Jun 24 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725105 Spent the morning at Honey's front yard and 1 side. 6 hours and I'm not even done with those sections. I pulled out dead branches, trimmed, weeded, sprayed, and did as much cleaning as I could. Honey mowed the back yard while I worked in the front. I still have to finish weeding his corner garden, but it was way to hot to stay out any longer. I came home, rested, and then went to my garden. Didn't get much done at all here. Finished cleaning up the crumbles of 2 brick piles that had broken do... Tue, 24 Jun 2014 19:00:03 EST Mon June23 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5724506 What a day! I started my vegan week and survived day one...not hungry, just hate cabbage soup! BUT...I had fruits and veggies and life will go on. <BR> GS was awesome today. we played ball, ran, cooked, watched a dinosaur movie, read books, went for a long walk, picked flowers for his mother, threw rocks in a creek, watched birds, watched the wind, watched the clouds, listened to thunder, cleaned, did dishes, sent pics to his mother, and most important..we napped! I am in love. There is so m... Mon, 23 Jun 2014 23:14:48 EST Sun Jun 21 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723729 Going to bed. Long day. Worn out. to the GS tomorrow. Be blessed all Sun, 22 Jun 2014 23:08:47 EST Sat June 20 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723109 Last night was wonderful. Best date ever. I shared grapes, mac and cheese, and yogurt. I played ball and waded in water puddles, read books, had a puppet show, and danced like no one was watching!!! God is so good to let me have time with this little man. He is such a blessing! <BR> Got up early, filled the car with gas, emptied my office for the time off, took things to the bin, picked up sand for the garden, took sister and Honey to a lily festival and 'expanded' my collection!!!...then to... Sat, 21 Jun 2014 23:46:26 EST Fri Jun 20 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722263 I'm off to see GS tonight!!! Hip hip hooray!! <BR> It's storming out...wind, thunder, rain..."once upon a stormy night' kind of weather. I won't be in the garden for sure tonight and no marble pickup either. <BR> I have the north side of the brick walk done now. Heading for home. Maybe 10 more feet to lay and it will be complete. The moon flowers are up and the lilies are coming in with zeal. The easter lilies I salvaged from the church dump last year are all blooming and happy and we now h... Fri, 20 Jun 2014 16:35:07 EST Thur Jun 19 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5721407 Last day working the hall. Back to the desk tomorrow. <BR> I was able to get about 6 more feet of brick walk laid last night. It's very rough, not a fancy thing at all...but the bricks are from 1860's and were made when the house was built...so when I put the sand on top to sweep between the cracks, the finished walk will look like it's been there for years. Tonight, if nothing happens, I'll be painting some of the yard furniture and decorations I have heavier work to do, but It's over 100 d... Thu, 19 Jun 2014 12:48:47 EST Wed Jun 18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5720658 Still in the new position...quite the change. Not permanent, but sure is a great break from the stress of the phones and alerts. I've had a couple of grumps, but for the most part I've seen people who really want to be in better health and are working at it. Love a good attitude. <BR> I'm really focused on tracking food and exercise, more so than usual. Making substitutions is difficult for me. I saw an info mercial the other day that offered specific sized containers and the gimmick was ...... Wed, 18 Jun 2014 12:35:40 EST Tues Jun 17 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5720023 Worked in a new position today...liked the calm and quiet. <BR> Honey had his appointment yesterday and will have the MRI and xrays Fri before his follow up in another couple of weeks. I have 3 more days until vacation...then OFF for a week. <BR> Working on a granny afghan, socks, chatalains, and finishing up some artwork. Honey loved the picture of his father and cried when he opened it. We'll go to his homeplace soon and get the barnwood to replace the temporary frame it's in now. <BR> I... Tue, 17 Jun 2014 16:06:36 EST Mon Jun 16 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5719444 "One of those moments when you want to yell 'I told you so' and choose to keep your mouth shut" <BR> Went to the spine neurosurgeon this morning. He saw Honey 'walk' and asked how long that had been going on...answer 'over 2 years'...since before we came to see you and you ordered spine injections. Doctor then informs Honey that his symptoms show deterioration in L4-L5...Lumbar vertebra that control leg movement. MRI and xrays now ordered and we will start all over. <BR> We left the medical ... Mon, 16 Jun 2014 22:45:16 EST Sun Jun 15 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5718697 Got up and fed/watered all the potted plants then dressed. <BR> Church in the morning with a reception for 2 ministers who will be leaving and then off to DD's house to have a Father's Day cook out with in laws and us (and to be around my GS I will drive to the moon and back). Honey and I went back to his house, sat on our chairs and napped. I filled out the papers for the doctor's appointment in the morning and stopped to get yarn on the way home. Now off to bed and up to get the day going ... Sun, 15 Jun 2014 21:32:40 EST Sat Jun 14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5718038 Wrapping up another one. <BR> got up early...sparked a little, dressed, went to have the car serviced and tires rotated, met Honey and he rode the morning with me. The car is washed, banking done, bills paid, med picked up, shopping finished, a quick stop by the office to make sure it was ready for Mon (I'll be off to go to the doctor with Honey), a trip to the storage bin to drop off some things, and finally home to hit the fields.
