emoticon I probably need a booster seat eoo, people used to say I looked like a little kid in the car until they got closer, lol

My brother went down to his daughters yesterday and then the VA in Saginaw, Mich wanted him admitted there, so that is where he is now. he told me for about 2-3 days, I am not sureand I guess are going to run some tests on him, Not sure what all yet.

Good luck, with all of the paper work, Margie, and also emoticon on the walking. All the best, Andrea

Some people try to turn back, their odometers

Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way,

I've travelled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Day started off at the court house to see if I had to sign papers for mil to lease her mineral rights...yes I do...actually not her mineral rights, yet, still in probate...it will become hers in a few weeks...then the gas co. man didn't have all the paperwork and has to come back Monday. There is 5 heirs that own 1/5th interest and the gas co. is being fair. They are leasing the rights and paying royalties when they drill. So, I ended up walking home from mil 2 times today plus the time in town and walking around at the building. Right now I've walked 3.62 miles registered on fitbit and walked 2 miles on the gazelle.

Try to check back later, Margie

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

Hi Gals, weather is a lot better today emoticon and in the +70's. Tomorrow, it looks like it will be back up, in the high 80's. We'll have a pool day, at my friends'. emoticon
Candice and I have to go and pick up DH at work, but may end up, back at Bridget's, depending on, how hot it gets.
Have a nice time, in your yard, with your neighbour, gone..Merri. lol, I am the shortest one, in our whole family, and people, say, they can't even see me, in the car. I guess, I need a booster seat. haha. I need to take a couple of hours, and weed, my back garden. It is a disaster, along the fence. emoticon
Eileen, I will sure enjoy my DD, rain or shine..it looks like, maybe, more emoticon than emoticon but, the temperatures, look pretty good. I hate to share her, with her Grandma. lol. That is a joke, her Grandma just loves her, and vice versa. Every kid, needs a true loving Grandma, if at all possible. My Mom, is the only grand parent, the kids have, left.
Nas, I have you and your family in my prayers. I wish you, all good things.
I'm expecting our Jessie, over this evening. I feel tired, as I looked after my Mom's dog, most of the day, while she and Candice, went to the hair dresser's, and Mom, for an eye exam. I did a few things, but mostly ate candy, so silly of me. I'm probably having a sugar crash right now.
Anyway, take care emoticon Andrea

Andrea, Oh boy, I am 1/2" taller than you!! I bet we would both get lost in a crowd LOL.....I am so short in all of my DGD wedding pictures.

I like the cooler weather here in WI. It is so much easier on my DH with his COPD. We find going for our walk around 9-10 AM is the best time for us. Most of the dew is off of the grass and there isn't that much junk in the air yet...

Only walked 2 miles on the gazelle but over 3 miles "around" that consisted of cleaning, walking home and going to pick up meds. Got to be at the court house in the morning to check on some estate stuff. Finally got done cleaning the old store building,,now we are unpacking stuff that has been stored away and seeing what we can sell at the yard sale.

Talk tomorrow, Margie

Andrea, sounds like the same kind of weather here, not that much rain this past two days, but sure is cooler temps, not a lot of hot weather at all.

Have a great time with your daughter,

Pouring rain, emoticon here..just awful!. I finally turned the heat off, about 1..it is starting to get muggy, in here, what with all of the rain.
I cleaned and washed all of the floors, dusted, etc. I'm pooped now.
My DD will be on the ground in an hour, but don't expect them home, until about 5. emoticon She'll be mental emoticon over this weather. She left, sunny and hot.
I find the 90's hot as well, but I love it. It is because, we sure don't get it, as often as we'd like. Some summers are great and hot, but, this one..not so far. emoticon We have a good couple days, here and there, but not consistent.
Have a nice day, Andrea emoticon emoticon

Kirby, we have about +60, Jeeze, we were in the +80's and +90's..and what happened? emoticon It has been cool and rainy, for 2 days now. It is supposed to get up, to the 80's tomorrow, and Friday, but then the rain, starts again Saturday. It was a horrid winter here, and summer hasn't been all that great, so far, either.
I love the heat emoticon I sure hope that we get a little heat wave, before Candice, has to go back home.
I'm busy cleaning away, and will put a roast on, for supper.
Oh, I did notice, we were talking about height..I was 5'1", at my tallest..lol, and am 5', now. My Mom was always 5' 4.5", but is probably about 5'2" now..still taller, than me. My Dad was tall enough 5'10"..I don't know what happened to me. emoticon and I'm so busty, to boot, which makes it worse.
Anyway, good luck, with cooling off. I hope Candice will walk with me, in the afternoons, unless, it gets hot enough, and we go to Bridget's pool. emoticon Here's hoping. emoticon Andrea

Well my brother could not go with me, and not today either, as he has to go to the VA again today, and also last evening when he was here, he got a phone call on his cell, telling him to go to the ER as his BP was too high, so he was there for a few hours and then got his BP down, and elevated.then they released him, they are having him check his BP this morning even and calling him to get the report of what it is.... Well, I was going to go to a town south of us, (30 miles south of me) BUT, as soon as I started out driving around some blocks, it started doing that shift slip, so I remembered he(Dennis) at the garage told me to take it in when it did that when I was driving around and they got a guy to test drive it and had me go along, BUT would you believe it did Not do it when he test drove it!!!! So, the guy checked the Transmission Fluid and it showed "over full"?? I have not put any transmission fluid in it since I have had it. So, they said they would suck some of it out and we will see if that will help it, I should get a transmission change like u do for oil, they sucked out the fluid that was over full and did not charge me. I will have to save some money for the fluid change..... I really do not have anyone to do that for me, since hubby is gone and son has all of his work done at a garage in town where he lives, and he gets sick at times because of his stomach problems and his copd.

still getting emails, seems like more than b4. lol

Last evening my brother had to go to the ER and get his BP elevated, he had to go up yesterday to the VA and then they called him when he was here at my house and had told him to go to ER, well they got the BP down, he spent the night here at my house, he also has another appointment to the VA again today,

I also got a phone call from a Church friend lady last night, her husband passed away yesterday, so sad, now she is alone, I feel really bad for her and do not know what I can/could do for her.?

It is not all that hot here, was cooler yesterday and looks to be about the same today.

Rosie, Our newest car is a 2005 too. They will last a long time if they are maintained. It sounds like you are doing a good job in the dept...I do agree that it is a good thing that a male is going with you tho....

Sometimes you may have to put some money into a car, but as you posted, NO car payments than...

We did that last year to our 1999 van. We knew it was still a good way of transportation too and it was worth putting in around $1,000 into it and than have no new payments...My DH did all of the work on it and that really saved us a lot of money.

I had just heard on our TV station in the last few nights to be very careful when using your debit card. Not to let it out of your site as they now have this little thing that they can swipe you card through it and it gives them your debit card info for them to use later...

We had rain and wind last evening and then, later, through the night. No terrible storm, though, thank goodness. The temperature dropped from the 90s to the 60s, although I think we're to be back in the 80s today.

I hope your husband is feeling better, Kirby.

Rosie, it's nice your brother will go with you to have the car checked. I think men communicate better with one another when it comes to mechanical things - or maybe they just understand it all better!

Well, I've made it to Wednesday and I am REALLY feeling my age this week. My daughter seems to enjoy having mom cook for her and it's good to see her eating and even coming back for seconds! She hasn't had as much appetite through this pregnancy. Today I have laundry and cleaning to do, plus I need to focus on my knitting - I've been slacking off the last few days on that. So, it will be a mostly indoor day which suits me fine.

Went to town to get gas for the lawn mower and weed eater..it rained this morning but dried off...son was using the weed eater and I decided to mow the yard...while I mowed dh fixed an early supper...I checked the weather on the computer and it said a storm was headed our way...so sooner read that, I walked to the back door when our son was leaving for work and he had to go out in it!!! WOW, the wind was blowing so hard, within minutes it was storming emoticon and I turned the police scanner on to hear several wrecks had happened, one was a log truck turned over and trees down in several places. Storm didn't last very long.

So, my exercise today has been 75 minutes mowing the yard, 3 miles on the gazelle and another 1 1/2 miles "around". emoticon

Just had a snack of watermelon. emoticon Later having blueberries.

Later, Margie

Yeah, I called my brother and talked to him, he said he had just got a call from the VA and they wanted to see him (his doc) so he said when he got back, we /he would see then, not sure how long that will take.

It's a good car and I have been told that it would last me for a long time, by more than one person, including my late hubby as we got it b4 he passed inn 08. I do not need another car nor can I afford to make payments, I paid this one off about a year ago, it is not that old, but it is a 2005, still in nice shape, we do have to keep maintaining them, though. emoticon

I don't have any credit cards, just a debit card,

I think it rained last night and there is no sun yet this morning.

All kind of things happen as we age I have shrunk I can tell that from standing next to Vicki,
The kids use to stand next to me to measure now they look down at me oh well things happen ,
Rosie may be a good thing to take your brother but my brother is a doll but what he knows about cars you can put on the head of a pin, School stuff he knows all kind of things but not cars . My goodness can not have every thing can we?
Still have not done anything but work on crossword puzzle, may finish that we shall see
better run

Margie, you and I are about the same height. I always pictured you as tall - of course, at our height we picture everyone as taller than we are, right? LOL. I know I've shrunk, too - do not know how much and don't really want to know. When you start out under 5' what is there to wonder?

Rosie, that car is a worry to you, isn't it? Maybe it's reaching a point where you'll want to consider a trade-in? I agree - you never know what to do with them and just routine maintenance is so costly these days. Maybe if your brother goes with you and talks to the mechanic he can advise you. Good luck!

Great your eyes are so improved, Ei. Even if you need glasses for distance, I'm sure you're enjoying not needing them so much. Either way, we're lucky to have the vision we do as it was so much worse before they had these surgeries.

I hope you got your son's credit card mess sorted out, Merri. Another friend was tellling me, just yesterday, that hers was "captured" somehow and someone charged thousands of dollars up and down the east coast within hours!

It's nice your daughter can walk with you, Kirby. I think it does make the miles go by much more easily. We always have a great time when my daughter walks with me - although these days we've had to slow down a bit - she's getting pretty big and tires more quickly. Well, soon we'll have to figure out how to walk with TWO babies instead of one.

I was just at our family dr and they said yesterday I am 5' and 1/2 " I used to be 5'2".

Rosie, We got through Menominee, MI when we go to Marquette, Mi where my DH & I were born. It is so pretty up there. I just wish there would have been more work there when we got married and left in 1959.

So sorry to hear about your car. I sure hope the mechanic can figure out your problem and it won't be that expensive....But, what isn't expensive now days?

I don't know anything about cars either, Kirby, and sometimes wish I didn't have one, it is so hard to know what to do about some things since hubby is no longer here, I do know yes, they are handy to have when we need to go some where, it would save me on insurance, gas and maintenance to not have one, just wish I knew what to do,I also know it will be expensive, to have it fixed if need be. And I do need mine to get to work and back. even though it is walking distance, I do not want to walk there at 7 am and especially in the winter.

Thanks Irish, I feel so down and "blue", on the 21st, I have to take my daughter up to the U.P to Menominee to pick up her son from his dad as she does not have a car anymore, and she is paying for the gas. I have to work the following day and hope it is not late when we get back. Just wish I could retire, emoticon Such a busy month this month, have an all 60's class reunion, on the 19th, too that I want to go to.

Rosie, Hope you get your car checked and it is nothing too serious. I know what you mean, always something and hard not to worry. I am 5-6", but think they said 5' 5-1/2 now, funny how we shrink as we get older. My sister tells me I walk fast. She does walk slow, since she has RA and it is difficult for her to move quickly. emoticon emoticon emoticon
Went to a class at my Y near home yesterday, the instructor really keeps moving and not many water breaks. LOL.....today, I go to my eye dr., last time, ,hopefully for the checkup from the two surgeries. He will let me know how the eyes are doing and possibly need glasses for distance only. Will see what he says. emoticon Will stop at the Y that I love for their class too if my eyes are not Too dilated. Got to keep moving . Enjoy the day all. see you later. hugs, Ei emoticon

Margie, that is about what my mother was, and maybe even a bit shorter.

Thanks Nas, I am glad I got the emails back, it is so hard getting to all my sparks groups, with out them

I am a bit worried about my car, sometimes, it does not do it all the time only once in a while, but it seems to do it when it is warm, when I start out and it automatically shifts, it will jump and does it during the 1st, 2nd and 3rd shifting, starting out, and like I said, it does not do it all the time, has been doing it for some time, I have had it over to the shop a couple of times, and they said it seemed fine, but, they told me when I am out driving it and it does that to stop in, but every time it has done it is when they have been closed or I am not in town or after their open hrs. My brother talked to a Mechanic and he told him to tell me to take it to a place up in Gaylord and tell them that he sent me, there. Maybe I'll go up today and talk to them, and ask my brother if he would go with me. Just something else to worry about. Gaylord is 30 mi. north of here, where I used to live and grew up at. I sure hope all goes well. emoticon I know we are not suppose to worry, but,sometimes that is hard not to do.

I'm not sure if I've shrunk yet but I was 4' 11 1/2" at age 21. I keep a fold up step stool(that slides in by a cabinet) in the kitchen so I can reach the top shelves in my cabinets. emoticon

I always thought that people that are taller could walk faster, myself, I have/am short and I do believe that is one reason why I walk slower. Because my leggs are shrot, I am only 5'-5'1, used to be 5'2"

Will do it again tomorrow even if it is 93 degrees . It is hot here but the walk made me feel better .
I hope we can get back to 2 miles and if we just keep plugging along will make it
Think I will check and see if I have a note from Harley miss her so much

I used to be a fast walker but not by choice...dh is 10" taller than me and I always had to walk faster to keep up with him emoticon he has slowed down but I still find myself telling him to slow down.

I walked 4 miles on the gazelle and 3 miles running errands and cleaning on the old store building and I walked home again! emoticon

Everyone take-care, talk tomorrow, Margie

Sure is nice having these emails back, What I had to do is go to my Start page and up in the left hand corner is email preferences, so I went there and found out that it was marked at the bottom on the left do not send any more emails, I do not remember checking it for that, but, maybe I did?

My grandma was always a fast walker, too, I try to walk fast, but, sometimes find out that I tire quicker when I do and also since I took bp med that was part water pill in it and when I walk too fast, makes me feel like I have to go pee and I do not want to wet my britches. I do wear a light days pad most times so/to help with that.

I have "Terminal City" on my list, Ei. Glad to hear you're enjoying it. I still haven't read Janet Evanovich's latest either. Nancy Thayer has a new one out also - always good for a quick read and a few laughs.

My main walking buddy here is Kilean - and he sits in the stroller! LOL. Sometimes my daughter walks with me in the evenings or on a Sunday. I am also a fast walker, although in Virginia I seem to be going uphill so much it does slow me down. When I'm in NY, my son's whole family likes to hike, so we go along the canal trail or one of the many nature parks around the area. Most of my NY friends do NOT walk at all - or very little. I wonder if it's because they don't like walking in the winter.

Kirby, It's nice that Vicki will walk with you. Time will pass quickly and it will be fun. emoticon
Rosie, So glad your emails are coming through again for you. Hope you get to walk at the Ramada, should be a nice group to walk with. emoticon Frances, I am reading Linda Fairstein's "Terminal City" and so far just started, seems good. My youngest dd loved it. I have read a few of her books before and liked them. I have some other books on order and anxious for those to come in too. "Yarn over Murder", Maggie Sefton and "Murder She Wrote- A Aloha Betrayed" somehow my dd and I missed that one. Not sure if it is new or not, marked as #41.
emoticon Just back for exercising at the Y. Need to jump in the shower, but thought I would check email first. Hope all of you have a great day. Hot one here and it already rained real early. See you later. hugs, Ei emoticon

My emails are back, emoticon

I always have to walk by myself, as everyone else is too fast for me, I don't like that, but, the only time someone is around walking is when I go to the Ramada, and now they are walking outside and it is at 9 o clock in the am and I like to sit around and relax and have my coffee, when I am not working or going some where else. At the Ramada, they go at about 11 o clock.

Belated Happy Birthday Andrea!! emoticon emoticon

Margie, congratulations on reaching a new milestone! emoticon I know how important those breakthroughs can be, especially when you feel you've been "stuck" for a while.

The squash and zucchini sounds wonderful, too. I am not a vegetarian (although have/had some in my family over the years) but I do try to eat all-natural foods and low on the food chain, so a dish like this works well for me. I might try it as a casserole.

Are you reading anything good, Ei? I just finished Lisa Scottoline's "Keep Quiet" and now have an older "cozy" centered around a knitting shop. I try to get audiobooks as much as possible as it allows me to knit and "read" at the same time.

I'm lingering over coffee and computer this morning, while Kilean plays quietly. My son-in-law had a death in the family and had to fly home this weekend, which means I'm in charge of cooking, keeping house, etc etc - in addition to caring for Kilean all week. I know the days are going to be long, so plan to pace myself according to the day.

Congrats Margie, great weight loss. I know you work hard at it. Keep up the momentum.
emoticon emoticon Took a walk and then relaxed and read my book. Planned meals for the next few days. My brother came over to visit which was nice. He stays at my one daughter's when he comes, since she has an extra room for him. He loves to see the two kids too and how they have grown. Well, off to read my book and hit the hay. See you all tomorrow.
hugs, Ei emoticon emoticon

emoticon for the birthday wishes. emoticon I'm just getting myself ready, to go to Mom's, to celebrate, myself, emoticon and my sweet brother. We'll have a big meal, and then it is back on my diet plan, tomorrow. emoticon
I'm amazed, I'm only up two pounds, from my trip to Halifax. We did do a lot of walking, there, though. That was probably my saving grace.
Well, I guess it is time to get ready., Oh yes, a fellow, came by, last night, about our siding. The insurance co. sent him, and he said, he will fix our siding for $500.00, so I guess, that is much better than $2000.00. I told him, to go for it, so maybe next week, he'll do it. He had a piece of siding, that matches our house, perfectly. emoticon
Have a great day, I'll be back, later. emoticon Andrea

Some people try to turn back, their odometers

Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way,

I've travelled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

We had gotten a call from our DS debt card fraud squad saying that they were concerned about one transaction that he had made. I called them back and as then I knew it was a real call from our bank. I had his SS# but not this four security number that they had wanted...

I told our DS that this morning once we were able to reach him now. It is really had to reach him when he is traveling back to Afghanistan....Once he told me the security number, than of course I had it here all of the time..DUMB me LOL....

"This is what he wrote back to me this morning...

Mom, you are doing great and I can’t begin to express how much I appreciate your help.

It’s a thankless job…



But, I do appreciate your help – and being #1 mom."

I guess they do grow up and realize we did try our best raising them LOL

WooHoo----after 3 weeks at 151 and 2 weeks at 150---I finally got OUT of the "150's"--it is official 149.5 and brings my BMI down to overweight instead of obese!!

Cheerios and blueberries for b/f, and pre-cooking chicken before I bake it in the oven with gravy and biscuits.

See how much I can walk today.

Later, Margie

Good morning everyone. Started a new book this morning, hoping I will enjoy it. emoticon
Andrea, Happy Birthday to you. Have fun celebrating with your brother at your mom's. emoticon My brother's b-day was the 30th of June, so we celebrated on the 4th with him. He usually comes to OH from CO twice a year. Will be back in December. emoticon
Andrea, I do hope your homeowners insurance will cover the damage. Such a shame, but I guess it could have been worse. )-: Frances, My son lives in NY and no he did not make it home for the 4th. Miss him and wish he came home more often. Usually in May (not always)
and then Nov or Dec. I call him and he calls and we chat, but it is not the same as being together. )-: Well, I better get moving, and ready for church. Have a nice day all. Keep moving and having fun. (-: hugs, Ei emoticon

Thanks for all the input about mush. After I found the recipe, I asked dh if he remembered grandma cooking the stuff, and of course he says NO because apparently she had refrigerated it overnight and all he remembers is her slicing it and frying. Dh just made his cornbread and fried it. I put leftovers in the frig. and our oldest son came in and heated them up. He like them. Anxious to try them again--this time according to the recipe!!!

Walked 3 miles on gazelle and 3 miles "around". Going up and cleaning in the building then walking home has helped me get in some "extra" walking. Been riding up with dh, then he usually comes home before I do and then I walk home emoticon.

Heated to bed, Margie

Hi Ladies,
We went out, for breakfast this morning, shopping. We got home and I cleaned up, and ended up with company, this afternoon. By the time everyone left, DH and I had a late supper.
I got cleaned up, and am on my way to bed shortly. My youngest brother is 53 today. Tomorrow, he and I go up to my Mom's for a shared birthday dinner. I'm 67 tomorrow emoticon
My company was here, in case they miss me tomorrow..very nice. the one lady, brought me a small red velvet cake emoticon
My DS will be 48 on the 11th., so that is coming up soon, and my SIL is on the 29th..so we have a few birthdays.
The day was very nice and hot, and has since turned cooler and now we have rain emoticon
A fellow came by, and assessed the hail damage, and will send us, his report in a day or so. He did say, he thought it would be about emoticon 500.00. I hope, no more. I actually thought, it would be a lot more money.
Anyway, have a great night emoticon Andrea

I don't think the cops went by here, if they did, they stop and get out of their car, but it did get quiet at about 12:00 midnight at least...It has been quiet today, here emoticon

I have never made corn meal mush either, but, my mom in law used to make it and my late hubby said they ate a lot of it when he was a kid, I do however know how to make it, just like making oatmeal except use corn meal, I do not know if I have ever had it, but, when we/brother and I lived with grandma, she may have made it many times, I do remember having pancakes, mostly, I do not think I have had it fried(corn meal mush) I ahve had corn meal in pancakes

I not a city girl either but never heard of mush maybe I just led a sheltered life or something. A gal on another site ask me about something to take to a 4th party and told her about Shoney Pie it is so festive and pretty thought surely they would have heard of it a few had but it is on cooks.com someone looked it up . It is good made some to take to Vicki's yesterday and have some in ref. It is easy and good .
I think I will get my bath and prop up and read see you tomorrow
