Yes, that's enough but it was fun with lots of people.

It's inland to the east or Los Angeles. It's usually really hot. It's close to Palm Springs, which is desert.

It's like Vegas but much much smaller. Usually more regular people can afford Reno.

Sometimes I miss a message and then I don't get them any more. I need to think harder about The Hen House.
Just got back from Reno, Nevada. It was a nice relaxing trip. It's still hot here. I want fall!

Sounds like fun. I enjoy showers.

We had a flood in part of our basement where water has never been before and no one noticed so there is mold!!!! I am horrified. I have guests coming and the smell and worry about the air quality are really making me anxious. I made DH cut out the carpet and drywall in that corner and we are borrowing an air quality fan. Of course I have guests coming Friday for the long weekend and then more coming next week. Where has this water come from??? I wish I were more mobile and I could do some investigations. DH has to go to work and will look at it again tonight. I ate over it last night. Granola with chocolate chips. I glued myself to the TV and I knew DH was stressed because he suggested we watch another episode of the show even though it took us to midnight... later than we usually stay up.

I had to blog about the food dragon and how to stop these "snack attacks" today. I have to do something to change how I react to stress. I now have 3 people in my life who are terminally ill, my daughter writring the exam says her last blood test showed liver problems as well as pancreas... as though she is an alcoholic yet she does not drink and she is only 23. I promised myself I will NOT go on the internet to look up any information.

Today I am cooking for my spark friend with cancer and it is meant to be lovely out so I will take a garedning break. Heat coming on the weekend. I am team leader for the writing diet and I think that will really help me deal with my stresses and try and get out of this cycle of bad eating when I am stressed. I am making so many good choices these days and am very proud of myself... but my food dragon is roaring all the time and driving me nuts. I need stress relief.

On the excellent side my new neighbour is lovely. She came for coffee yesterday morning and we chatted for way too long... but she really fills my cup. She really wants a friend and we have so much in common. She is tiny and does not understand food problems but she is a recovering alcoholic so we speak the same "language", both having done 12 step programs. I can't wait to be able to walk again as she loves walking. I SHOULD call my doctor today and see what the heck is happening with my surgery date... but I am afraid the surgery will limit my mobility in that knee and I know that is stopping me from being pushy.

OK that is everything. A big vent today. I didn't want to vent in my blog because so many people seem to be reading it, lol. Ah.... it will keep me honest but I really don't like a lot of attention. We get what we need, not what we want, right? Have a great week my friends and I hope things go well with the kids starting school Geri. Nas, you are the BEST keeping up on my blogs. It makes me smile every time I see you on my page.

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

Today I gardened for 90 minutes then gave DD a massage. She rarely likes being touched but has a sore back that is not going away.

I also had a young neighbour the kids grew up with come over and give me a big hug and chat. I sometimes feel like we are not connected with the neighbours but he obviously felt like we were important in his life at some point. He is home helping his parents re-shingle their roof.

My daughter in Waterloo has now been moved by her boyfriend to another room in another house and is in the last phases of "school". She has officially graduated from her Master's program with an average in the high 80's through out her program. Woo hoo! However she is still suffering l with serious gastric problems. Today is another test at the hospital. I have been blogging about all the food I have made for her with her restricted foods. She is also ill with a cold and miserable. However there are less than 5 weeks left and she will be HOME. We have been problem solving how she is going to write her national exam. She just sent a copy of her confirmation for a hotel that is within 20 minutes walk of the place she has been assigned to write it at and will stay there 3 nights while writing. Anotehr of her classmates thinks she might do the same. If they are delayed by traffic or hurricane or... anything they have been told they get an automatic fail. If the computer program crashes during the exam they fail. My husband and I are certain that legally they cannot do this. Certainly the accomodations they are giving my daughter for her disability they are doing with great reluctance but in the letter they admitted that by law they have to comply. I sure hope she is not in the situation of having to take them to court if something goes wrong. It's a very expensive test to write and you don't get your money back even if it is not your fault you can't post your answers. I think the Accountants of Canada have way too much "power" if they can intimidate students like this.

Sorry about your fires Geri. It is that time of year and scary for many people. We have had a mix of rain and sun and today is lovely. It has been weeks since I have felt confident in my knee and today I managed to get all the way down the driveway weeding and tidy a bit of the garage. The van is FULL of DD's things from Waterloo that her boyfriend moved back and we need to have it empty to take a car load to "Walking with Dinosaurs", the arena production which we are doing for my eldests' birthday Wednesday.

I am sending my middlest to British Columbia to visit with her grandparents in Osoyoos, which is Canada's only "dessert". She plans to interview them and record history, stories over 5 days. They are both in their 80's now and very excited that she is coming. I was able to book the flight for only $150 using my aeroplan points and she gets to do 2 stopovers, one 10 hours overnight and one 8 hours during the day in Vancouver on the way there and back so hopefully can visit her cousin and see one of Vancouver's sites. I wish we could see them more often. My MIL did not come to my nephew's wedding in July as she became too anxious to travel. There was a dedication of a bench for them as a surprise which she missed and was heartbroken... so my husband photoshopped her into the pictures. Isn't technology marvelous!

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

I encountered an individual today at a local county fair who got "into my space" and insisted that he had a cream that would remove my wrinkles. -- Thank you, but "no thank you!"
Once I passed the "50" mark, that is part of my "character," wisdom, maturity and willingness to age gracefully!

(I'm sure he would have been offended if I offered him a cream to remove his "brown" skin color!!!!!!)

Most of the fires are started by lightning. The drought is making it hard to fight them.

The two closest fires are getting under control. It's just a shame that so much forest land is burning.

It's back in the 90s, but gray and sprinkling. This weather is weird. There are currently 14 forest fires in Calif. It makes it smokey living in a valley.

there was a problem because he does behave inappropriately at times laughing at solemn occasions etc so always have to arrange proper care for him

People don't understand physical and mental disabilities. I do. I have a grandson who has many mental problems and he wasn't always welcome at some family get togethers. We had to have several people watching him at all times.

Without a driver's license and with a grown son at home you take care of, you are really stuck. I'm glad you make the best of your time!

About 5 1/2 hours by car. It's a long drive and I've done it by myself many times. Don't want to do it any more. It takes to long to recover.
It's 105 degrees with gray skies. It thundered and lightninged last night. It also rained. Weird weather!

I'm home now and we had a lot of fun. We spent all day yesterday on the lake and quite a few got sunburned. I didn't!

My DD and her group arrived last night around 12 p.m. They're still asleep so I haven't seen them.
