Hi Sally you found a good one right here best bunch you will ever meet, It is good to have you do come back often.
It is getting hot today and I plan to hang out inside today it is not fit for man nor beast outside . I did walk late yesterday afternoon kind of late so will try again today ,
The crossword puzzle is hard today or I am getting dumb could be both.
Need to run and see if I can finish it .
Irish is yours hard today ?

Hi, returning to SP and I'm looking for a good board or team for over 60 that is limited to fitness and healthy eating discussions. Any ideas? Thanks!!

Although she didn't say this, I love the quote attributed to George Eliot:" It is never too late to be what you might have been."

Rosie..So glad Heaven didn't get hurt any worse than she did. Hope she gets well quick.

Paper work on mineral rights came in the mail today, I signed and got them notarized and they are ready to mail back in morning.

Walked 3 miles on the gazelle.

Dh wanted cookies baked..so glad ready to bake frozen cookie was invented...from freezer to cookie sheet.. Gotta check the second batch

Talk tomorrow, Margie

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

Rosie I don't drive got a valid license but some one else always want to and I always say have at it. Guess I am just lazy but between Vicki and her dad and both kids I don't have to so I choose not to.
I walked a little over a mile today and did kind of lay off on walking when it was so hot but will go ahead and walk even thou Vicki wanted to walk with me. If she don't show tough will go alone.
Think I will get me a bath see you

It is 600 mi. round trip,

My Grand Daughter Heaven.......(my dd posted this on face book after getting home here last night)

(Heaven was rushed to the ER tonight by ambulance after falling out of a swing. She is fine. Thank you to all of her concerned friends and family members. She compressed her 7th and 9th vertebrae. She will be in pain for awhile. We are home and she is finally sleeping for the night.)

Rosie, Wow, that is one long trip to do in one day!! We go through Menominee when we go to Marquette. MI...But, from here the trip is around 350 or so one way. We surely have never gone there in back in one day LOL...

It is going to be cooler here today. No rain at all and we really need it here. It is only 61 right now....We like the cooler weather here...

Today we get our hair cut again. My DH wants me to get mine cut shorter. I had let it grow out some for the wedding in June....It would be a lot easier to take care of...Just wash and run...

Just a quick hello and will read the posts later. Hope all are well and eating healthy and moving.
I did go to the Rec center two days in a row second week in a row. Love these two new classes.
Met some nice people too. Do miss the people from my Y, but it is further away (20 min drive) and decided to try this, 5 min from home. Wonderful and can go more often. Will be back later.
hugs to all , Irish Ei emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Margie, I think I would like a Gazelle that "squeaks and groans" - it would cover up my moaning and groaning! emoticon

I don't blame you one bit, Rosie. I have driven over some very scary bridges. The Skyway in Canada and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge come to mind, but the absolute worst one was not high at all - in fact, it sits right on the water level and has no real guard rails!!!! That is the causeway across Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana. Oh my, I was all alone and could do nothing but white-knuckle it all the way across. Never again! I have never driven the causeway through the Florida keys, either - and never will. Pictures are enough. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well, I've got "sweater #2" underway - this one will be Ahnu's (the 2-1/2 year old). I'm enjoying the colors, so it's going more quickly. If all goes smoothly, I should have them all finished before Halloween at the latest. I also have the Advent calendar gifts about half done.

If there's time (and energy) I may knit some small gifts for the "big" kids - scarves, market bags, messenger bags, etc. - but that is on the back burner for now in any case. I have to remind myself there will be a new little being in the family by then, too! Only about two and half months away!!

My day begins at 6 a.m. tomorrow, so I think I'd better get off this computer. Good night! emoticon

Francis, I have never drove across that bridge alone and sure hope I do not ever have too, it can be scary, especially if it is windy out, but if it is too windy or etc, they do at times, close the bridge down my daughter has drove across it many times alone, but then she has more gumption (i guess that's the word i want, i don't know) than I do, I won't even go on a long distance trip by myself, unless I know/knew the way. Also when my oldest granddaughter was 17 she got on the plane for the 1st time and flew to Egypt when she went to meet her husband that she is now married to and has 2 boys, they are living here in Michigan in Pontiac

Frances...No, I'm not shopping, YET! That was my attempt of trying to be funny! emoticon When I don't walk I feel guilty that I'm not exercising. It's like it is saying.."get off your fat butt and walk". Seriously, in the past 3 days, I walked 1 mile! I just couldn't get motivated. Well, I'm back....I walked 4 miles, today. I would like to buy a new one, though. I would like to get one with more "bells and whistles". Mine is the low end. It squeaks and groans. But, it has NO gears (talked to customer service years ago) so I don't know what makes the noise. I use Vaseline on it.

Not much going on today. We have a small "trading paper" that is published each week. you can advertise things to sell, trade, etc. They list auctions and yard sales. I took an ad to the office to advertise the yard sale. Stopped at the grocery store for potatoes. Exciting day emoticon

Talk tomorrow, Margie

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

I am here (even though you didn't miss me, Kirby) emoticon I was on the site twice today - which is unusual in itself - but got interrupted before I got over to this board. This is my third try!

That was some trip, Rosie! Only 150 miles less than what I drive from VA to NY and back - and I have a home at either end so don't usually do it in one day. Also, I'm not fond of long, high bridges...

Margie, does this mean you're shopping for Gazelle III?

Merri, we have had 80s and 90s a lot down here. I don't mind the temperatures if there's a breeze, but often it is just so humid by mid-day you can hardly breathe. We do our walking either early in the morning or in the evening when it's like that, and just stay in the a/c during the daytime. emoticon

Rosie, As I have mentioned on here before, we were born and raised in the Upper Peninsula. In Marquette, MI. We moved to WI right after we got married in 1959.. A nice place to visit. Nice clean air and very pleasant people..

We are going to have our hottest day of the year today. It is 72 here now and it suppose to get into the 90's...A good day to find something to do inside...

My gazelle and I are having a disagreement emoticon and it is winning! It is sitting in the corner staring at me. I ran a lot of errands this morning with mil. My knees are hurting more than usual so I took the afternoon off!!! I did walk close to 3 miles "around". Did pretty good on calories. Hope to get in gear tomorrow.

Talk tomorrow, Margie

Rosie, Good luck on your trip to the UP. That means you have to go over the long five mile bridge? I have never been over it and that is one thing on my bucket list to do. My DD said she would take me over it someday....

She lives in the UP and her son (my DGS) lives down state in MI

That is so sad and another one as well/ emoticon

Well I did go for a walk and while I was out decided to go on up to Walgreens and check out their vitamin prices, I was going to get some vitamins, but their calcium tablets cost a bit too much, so put all back and came on home. My knee started to hurt today, and I thought a walk might help, at least I gor some exercise in, Walgreens is close by me as well is Kmart and etc. I think last night when they were taking pictures of us at that reunion, I stood too long on one lsg and it began to hurt, was fine until today. Feels a bit better now

Rosie it is sad the man was 46 years old. He was a friend of Vicki's husband and they all worked at the same place. Another man that worked there is taking treatments for cancer right now. I feel so bad for the family he had been to Mayo Clinic and several cancer places but nothing worked .
We final had rain this afternoon and there was no thunder and lighting with it. It did knock the TV off but I think it is Dish or Direct which ever one we have. Why they screwed up and put that in my name I do not know I am not even into TV, I read and TV is not my thing , '
Think I will get me an early bath got my pjs out so may as well

emoticon about Vicky's friend, seems to be happening a lot around here any more even. sadly.

My brother has to go to the VA in the morning and have a couple of tests done, he has to rely on someone to drive him there and he is upset about that as the Dr doesn't want him driving long distances by him self. The Doc thinks he might have something wrong with one of his kidneys and he is worried about that, he has to have an ultra sound done. Also another test, I am not sure what that is, but prayers would be appreciated, and thanks.

I have that problem of not eating right as well, seems like there is always something to get us "off track" at times. emoticon Every time I try something on some where, I see my gut!! Lol and say to myself, that is ugly do something about it, but when I do seems it does not always last for long.

Tomorrow, I have to take my dd up to the U.P to pick up my grandson. Not likeing that, but she does not have a car and someone needs to do it, she is paying for the gas, and I do have to work the following day on Tuesday

We had an all 60's class reunion last evening it was fun..

Margie, Isn't that something how two people can set up a reunion? I have been very lucky and haven't had to do something like that yet. It will be interesting to see how your cousin's ideas will turn out....You might just hear some of them saying that they liked your ideas better too...

It is going to be another nice sunny day. We could actually see the smoke around the sun here yesterday from the fires going on....So hazy...

We went to get me a new pair of tennis shoes yesterday. Boy, what a difference in price from one store to another. Than even on line too. I wanted this one pair of New Balance that were on line but out of stock. Sears only had a wide size there and wouldn't honor the price on my add as they said mine were medium and theirs were wide...My add was on sale for 38.24 and theirs were 44.99...

We than went to Penneys and got the right ones on sale and an extra 20% off too... So cheaper than the ones on line with the tax included...I am one happy camper now...I got mine for 38.99 tax included,

Our foot dr said I have Plantar Fasciitis and a new good support shoe should help some. Than of course some exercises too

Thanks Frances. Lots to be thankful for and I do enjoy my little grandkids so very much. emoticon Margie, Well it is all behind you now, so I am glad you enjoyed the food. Tomorrow is a new day. Don't beat yourself up. We all have days like this and sometimes it is ok.
I think the exercise tomorrow will help you get back on track. emoticon Well, off to sleep. Pouring rain here this afternoon and now this evening. Church tomorrow. Have a nice evening all.Sleep tight. emoticon hugs, Ei

I am so glad I only go to 1 reunion a year and it is over. emoticon I ate so much today emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I have had so much restraint when it has come to eating but not today, I have no excuse...I did good on the main course..ham and chicken leg, then green beans and salad but OH MY-the desserts- no bake cookie, brownie, donut...oh I forgot the homemade p/b candy like mil use to make but doesn't remember her recipe but her niece is going to send it to me!!! The only thing that was half way healthy was the sugar free strawberry dessert...I didn't even eat any watermelon. SHAME SHAME!!!! OK..I ate and totally enjoyed it too much! I think I have it out of my system...BACK to the grindstone tomorrow. I registered around 2 miles on the fitbit.

Had a few relatives that remarked on my weight loss..said I was looking good. emoticon We agreed that I should have done a pic each year to show the change. I said "I would be down to my goal by next year" I hope it doesn't take a year but some of the relatives won't see me till then. I am sure I can do it as long as I don't repeat today emoticon

Have a good night, Margie

Ei, you seem to be having a rough patch. We all go through it as we get older. It has to do with our family and friends aging, of course, but also - I think, with the larger numbers of friends and acquaintances gathered over the years. There are just so many of us at the far end of our lives. My cousin was commenting the other day, that it seems she has a funeral to attend every week or so (she is 10 years older than I). I hope your friends and uncle are as comfortable as possible. The good news, I think, is that we live so much longer that we CAN have so many more people in our lives. Remember to include moments with youngsters - especially your precious grandchildren - to keep balance in your life!

Bad tings happen the man was not even 50 years old and had a 16 year old daughter, He was a nice fellow and knew his wife before moving here. She and Vicki have been friends for years. She trimmed Michaels hair and beard after he died put it in a zip lock bag for Harley to put in a locket and wear when she gets married. What a thoughtful thing to do and Harley was 18 months old and does not even remember him. I would never have thought of that.
We final had some rain and it was not a lot but it was so dry and we did need it
I need to think about a dish to send there tomorrow maybe some kind of pick up. will wait and see what Vicki wants to do if any thing usual the BOP sends in tons of food .
Need to run be back later

Kirby,
Sorry about Vicki's former co-worker. Seems that is all I am hearing lately. Went today to see my friend in hospital, that is Conscious, but on a venilator. She was so happy I can. Stayed an hour. Did not plan on it but she did not want me to leave. She wrote down a few things and I told her many things, so in a way it was a good visit. So hard to see what she has been going through with her heart. I do hope she gets well and comes home. She will be going to her daughter's. if she gets through all this. The doctor said she should not live alone anymore. emoticon So, right now I have 5 people that are sick, which includes my uncle. Lots to pray for. Must be our ages, although most are older than me.Do not mean to make this so sad, but guess I needed to vent to someone. Thanks for listening. Hope all of you had a nice day. Got to finish my wash. Take care all. hugs, Ei

Quick message..had another day(yesterday) yard sale. Did good. Today it is a family reunion. I turned it over to a cousin after the reunion last year after all the complaining!!!. She is changing everything..changed it to a new place (less parking?) changed it to a building with a/c instead of the park and pavilion..so we'll see????? Less space for the kids-and it is pouring the rain down so I guess the kids will stay inside??? I told dh, that I was going, visit, eat and come home and don't have to set up, clean up or anything. emoticon I made a p/b brownie and macaroni coleslaw...sounds weird but it is very good.....when I have time I'll give you girls the coleslaw recipe.

Check back later, Margie

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

The phone cut me short this morning when I first came here . Vicki called to tell me a friend of hers died a man who worked where she did I think he was 46 or so can not remember he had cancer and was so nice when Vicki's husband died . I think another person who worked there has cancer also .
I sure need to walk today my back is out of sorts and usual that helps . so am pushing myself to do just that
It really looks like rain so we shall see.

Frances, Oh how true that is about the sweets LOL....I do love fruit tho about as much....It is just best for us to leave the sweets at the store.

We do go to the Golden Corral once a week and that is when I will have my cookie....I do love the watermelon more tho...

Morning everyone, We have another beautiful day promised to us again. It looks like we are going to start climbing into the high 80's for a few days. I guess we have to let the ones that enjoy the warmer weather to have a chance too....

Not much going on here today or the weekend. Sort of nice having a "free" weekend.

Yes, Ei, sorry about your friend, we are never ready even though we know we are having to say goodbye and sometimes it happens when we least expect it.

I do need to get walking more myself.
I have never made salsa, will have to do some day, maybe.

Sorry about your friend, Ei. emoticon Final goodbyes are so hard. It sounds as if she has made her peace, though, and that is a comfort.

Rosie, I love clementines, also. If I have fruit instead of sweets around, I'll eat them and be very happy. So why is it when sweets are available, I reach for those first?!!

Getting ready to read and sleep. Have a good night!

i need to start eating better, too. like cut out some things. I have been writing down what I eat everyday, even if I don't get it all counted. And I Love Choco;ate and the dark chocolate is good for us, in moderation, but that is with all things in moderation, I also like clementines, but I am usually the only one that buys them or eats tgem, they are lo calorie and very easy to peel.

Met up today with my friend that had her second knee replacement. She is going quite well and Pt is helping her too. Thanks goodness. Then I went to see another friend that is in a n.home, in
hospice care. Her whole family pretty much was there and I stayed few hours. We reminisced about all the time we had when younger and the great times together. She is ready to go and wants to be with her husband Dan, who passed a few years ago. Hard and sad to leave her knowing it will most likely be the last time. )-: She was a great neighbor for years and then we both moved, but did keep in touch at times more the last few years. emoticon
Hope all had a great day. Rosie and Kirby, I think it is great that you learned to croquet and knit.
In the fall it will be nice to pick up again and finish things you started I am sure.
Margie, You do plenty to help your family and lots of other things to keep fit too We all have our own talents and keep busy with what works well for us. I agree with Frances. emoticon
Merri, I got where I do not buy those sweets much anymore, since they are too tempting at night. I do keep the 100 calorie popcorn, ff in the house and greek yogurt. Sometimes at night I will have few clementines.
Well, dishes time and relaxing too. See you later. hugs, Ei

Frances, Thanks for the info about the ink...We did find the three pack kind at Walmart and it was reasonable too. Only 28.99 for the three color pack. We had already just put the black one in a few days earlier...Than I seen on the side of the printer where I had actually taped the receipt from last year when we had replaced the old set. It had been done July 26, 2013...So, the ink lasted for one year...not bad at all...

I still have some problems with Ken eating better. He still gets into the sweets. I found myself yesterday looking at the fruit and veggies as Ken was over looking at the sweets. He thinks if he has one little cup cake like they are making them a lot now...it is ok.....WELL, he doesn't only eat one tho at a time....He is a diabetic too...Takes insulin at night...

I started really watching closer since July 7th and I am feeling a lot better now. Not tired around 3 PM like I was for sometime. I have to really watch my carbs...I mean more like chips and crackers. Not candy bars...I don't like chocolate...

Glad the yard sale went well, Margie! Funny about the sewing machine - and you don't need to sew, knit or crochet with all the other things you're always doing. There aren't that many hours in a day - LOL.

Merri, there are also places online where you can buy ink cartridges that have been refilled at a much lower price. I've heard that they work well, BUT if your printer is still under warranty you don't want to buy them. If they should leak (and I guess any cartridge can) it won't be covered. If you have an older printer, they might be a good savings for you.

Quiet morning, so far. The baby has a doctor appointment this afternoon. I've promised myself I'll be productive today, but I must say I'm off to a slow start.

Late night tonight!!

Had our yard sale today..did pretty good without advertising, just signs in each direction..going to have it again tomorrow, then again in 2 weeks with the county wide...

I can't sew, knit or crochet!! My sewing consists of sewing on buttons and hemming and if I can get someone else to do it I am really happy! emoticon My husband use to reupholster and he had a sewing machine...we use to have a joke--I said if we ever got divorced the sewing machine was the only piece of furniture I would NOT fight for. He could have it. He quit doing it and sold the machine!

Merri...I have got so I order printing ink directly from the company. It is never in stock at WalMart..the last time I asked the manager why I hadn't seen it on the shelves in 3 weeks...and was informed that he could NOT order it, the company comes in and stocks what he thinks the store needs!! Shipping isn't that bad and sometimes it's free and I can get it overnight or 1 day service.

Closed the yard sale about 5:30, then ran to town to get a few groceries and a pizza for dh and son. Grandkids was here for a while, had to unload the dishwasher and clean some strawberries...to say the least I didn't walk on the gazelle BUT walked 3.90 miles "around" today.

Got to go to bed so I can get up early again, Margie

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

I learned how to knit when I was in one school in Home Ec Class 9th grade, the teacher said we were going to learn to knit a pair of mittens, the 1st one I made was big and loose, the mate was smaller and about right, sure didn't look like mates. Lol, but I learned some knitting from my grandma, too as well as my mil, and/but, I rather crochet than knit, it is easier for me to take out if I have a mistake, my mil made ski sweaters and etc, she was really good at it as well as quilts, too.

Always leave loved ones with loving words, it may be the last time you see them.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotton Son, that whosoever believeth in him should no
