We had some nice rain showers yesterday and it was needed. Still could get more and I will enjoy that. I did my 60 minutes walking and a few little projects inside since it was to wet to work outside in the yard. I took time out and did some reading and relaxing. Have a good day.

We usually rake the cones Fall and Spring.
In the Spring the pollen comes and then the little red pod, some are pollenated but very few grow. We had both sex trees so it is impossible to get them up.
Our Grand's are going in the pool so we have to clear the filter 4 times a day. some days.
NAS I wish I could have the dogs in the pool but our son forbids it. Now I have big steps but Son is not letting me do it. Pat in Maine, emoticon emoticon emoticon

No, I have no veggies in my garden. Nearly all flowering plants to bring in the butterflies. During the dry season we need mulch to keep the ground moist enough for the plants to survive and during the wet season we need mulch to keep the weeds down or we would end up with a jungle in the yard.

today I played bridge and lost, but it was a lot of fun anyway. This afternoon I have some storage areas in the house to straighten up and then might get to swim and play pool ball with my dog.

Hope you all have a good day ( or night, Nas)

Morning ladies,

Pat, how many times/year do you need to rake up the cones?

Julie, do you have a veggie garden that you use mulch ?

Sharon, you had a busy day yesterday

Nas - think it is night time for you and you are sleeping????

Morning ladies,

Flying through this morning. Going for dental cleaning, thank goodness she had a cancellation because I couldn't make the last appointment and usually you have to wait 4 months.

Have a healthy day

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

Had a busy day yesterday. I got my 60 minutes walking and did a lot of things done outside in the yard. I had company in the afternoon, my ex-sister-in-law , and she was here for almost 3 hours. I then went to Wal-Mart with my youngest daughter and then out for dinner. I was really tired at the end of the day and glad to get home and relax. Hope you all have a good day.

Gosh, Pat, down here people pay a lot to get mulch made from pine needles and wood. The pine makes the soil more acidic, which is the best soil for citrus and tropical plants. Even when I could afford to buy mulch, I could not afford pine mulch. I get my mulch free at a city park, where I fill 9 half barrels and make many trips back to get more. Of course I don't think I would want the seeds from the pine!!!

My stepper gave me 12,403 after along day. I had to clean the pool liner and then the patio. I left the pool cleaner but I had to do the lions share.

We have 6 pine trees and we have had droppings from those trees. I have to rake them into a pile and then they get into a garbage bag.
We have to take them to the dump. I have raked very hard so my hands are hurting but it is getting much better for the grass
.
Those tiny seed pods from pine cones and then the tiny seed pods were so many they were choking the grass. It took a long time but I hope the rain and tonight 50 degrees this is not summer here in Maine in my area.
Our 2 grand daughters are happy together. They are staying for a while and today I got the in -ground pool cleaned and they were the first in this year. (((HUGS))) Off to bed.

Morning ladies,

I have 2 daughters and 3 grandkids. Fortunate that the 3 grands live here about 16 miles away. My older daughter lives on the NJ Shore (about 60 miles outside NY city)

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Good morning everyone!!

I don't have any children, but my sister has four children. I do have four niece/nephews, four great niece/nephews, and eight great,great niece/nephews. When I visit my sister in August I hope to see all of them. I have not been there for two years and it will be fun to see how they have grown and meet the two great,great nephews who were born since my last visit.

Yesterday I finished painting the walls and ceiling of the laundry area in the garage. My project for today is to clean the ceiling fans and the shelf high up over the entry to the kitchen.

NAS now I see the reason to do that side step. Well done, you are a very clever person.
It is amazing you are. You are still doing it. I never continued to do that and I wish I had. My back PT person did not tell me to do there exercises so when I got to the Y I just did their exercises.
Now I feel just to do the Spark exercises. I will try to do them daily.
I have found an exercise to help my back and it came from Coach Nicole and I will take time to do it just like the PT instructors.
Thanks Pat in Maine. (((HUGS))) emoticon emoticon emoticon

You are very good, Nas, to persistently follow these recommendations. Many people do not follow them even immediately afterwards, and they usually pay for it one way or another.

My mother was persistent like you and did the exercises for her knee replacements for 20 years after the surgery. I discovered this when I went to visit her after she returned from the hospital for a heart problem. She was going to PT to get stronger in general and insisted on doing the knee exercises first so she wouldn't get too tired to do them!!! I was amazed at her fortitude and glad she could stick to her plans.

I think people who have a long term outlook on life and are persistent in their efforts to be healthy generally do better as they get older. You strike me as one of those people, Nas.

Nas, very interesting. If it works for you that is what counts and the doctors do know what they are talking about. I had a good day yesterday and I did do my 60 minutes of walking and worked out in the yard most of the day Got some transplanting done and hoeing and weed whacking and all kinds of stuff. Hope you all have a good day.

I have been walking sideways which like taking a step to the side & bring the other foot in & continue that way my therapist told me to do it after I broke my femur in January 19 2014 after I was allowed to walk. Leona once commented that its useful for those of limited ability
have a great Sunday

Nas, I feel much better when I am active. How have you been doing.
It was cloudy, cold and very windy yesterday so I just had a pleasant lazy day. I even took a nice nap. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning, everyone.

Yesterday I started sorting, cleaning, and reorganizing the pantry and got 4 of 5 shelves done. Have now got each flour in a separate container so if one gets buggy the others won't get them. We make all our bread in a bread machine and have 5 kinds of flour in jars on the counter and about eight specialty flours and meals in the pantry--two of which had developed moving sources of protein. Today I will finish the pantry and hope to get into the garden between rains.

Have a good day!!!

Quiet day here yesterday. It was warm with storm warnings but nothing developed. Not even a sprinkle. We really need the rain. I didn't get anything done but I did walk 60 minutes. I did a few little things around the house but a bad breathing day with the humidity. Hope you guys have a good day.

I have always been a plant person and a cat person. For 10 years I lived in a one bedroom apartment in NYC which I shared with a roommate. I had a cat and much of the time the roommate had a dog--one had a Russian Wolf Hound, one had an English Sheep Dog. I did not have a garden and, because of the cat, I did not have any potted plants either. But I always had a flower in a vase on the dining table.

I, too, gave up planting vegetables, Pat. I grow plants with blossoms for the birds and butterflies, who need the food a lot more than I do, as the grocers do not like them to enter the grocery stores, fly around over people's heads, and then not have the right change to buy their purchases at the checkout. Better that they come to my house and find the exact plant they want for laying their eggs and feeding their larva and lots of tasty pollen for themselves.

I had a walking day I walked the rail trail and then I planted some annuals.
I have too much on so I wanted to do Vegetables but I am not doing any this year.
I want to have a fun time this year. I would be rather in the pool than raking the vegetables.
I am not getting younger so I am going for the good times. The vegetables will be fine in the markets. Pat in Maine.~~~~~73 years old~~~~~ emoticon emoticon

Yesterday was a good day. I did my 60 minutes of walking and got some things done inside. I made a great turkey and penne vegetable salad that is so good. I watered and fed the flowers and cleaned the bird baths and filled all the feeders. Just a lot of little things. Hope you all have a great day.

Enjoy your days with family to go to the shopping areas together.
I have just DH and he drives me to the door and he comes back to the door and he helps to pick up the bags for me.

Then home together and most of our group have moved south so we are about the only group of folks all together in Florida.
They were not snow birds they want all the good weather.
DH does not like heat and he loves the cold and playing with snow too.

Yesterday all three of us--my partner, her daughter, and I--went grocery shopping at Costco and also at Publix. The sprinkles turned into showers and then high winds with driving rain just as we exited Costco. My partner, Sue, could not ride her shopping cart in the rain so her daughter, Georgia, stayed with her while I got soaked loading up the car. Since I was already pretty wet, I volunteered to get stuff at Publix while they waited in the car. When we got home, I got warmed up and changed and then discovered that they had put all the groceries away!!

We were all in very good humor the rest of the day, watching TV, playing games, and chatting. This was the first time we had ever sat down together and planned out menus for the week, made a grocery list for items required, stuck pretty closely to things listed--all under the influence of SPARK.

Have a great day, everyone, and SPARK along!!!

I did my 60 minutes of walking yesterday and 3 loads of laundry. I picked at some little things around the house and did make it out for dinner with Barb. We had such a nice visit and I felt really good while out. She will be leaving for a short trip tomorrow through Sunday so it was good to get out and visit with her. We had light showers last night and I love to see that. Hope you all have a good day.

Really enjoyed reading where everyone came from and the changes in life.

Waiting for the cleaning crew to come, need to run to the Coumadin clinic and then DH and I will go onto the patio and attack the Jasmine climbing plant, it is so out of control.

As you probably knew from my writing about my gardens, I moved a number of times. Born in South Haven, Michigan, I moved to Kalamazoo Michigan after high school and attended nursing school. Then I moved to NYC, NY where I worked in a large hospital and went to college. Then I moved to Madison and lived in an apartment, met my partner of 44 years and lived with her and her middle daughter then in 3 different houses while working at the U of Wisconsin and Edgewood College. After my first retirement, we moved to Las Vegas to be near my aunt, who had a brain tumor. After she died, we lived in an RV for nearly a year, traveling all around the country, Canada, and Alaska. We finally settled in Florida in 1998 and have lived in two houses and a condo during this time.We are currently in a house living with my partner's oldest daughter.

I was born in Fargo, ND and when I married at 17 I moved across the bridge to Moorhead, MN where I have lived until now. I took about 1 1/2 years off and went to Colorado but wanted to come back here where my kids are. Have a good day.

I think I said I was raised in England and we were very poor.
My mother was a seamstress and she taught me sewing skills but she wanted me to be something better she used to stay.
I went into Radiography and as soon as I got my certification, DH and I came to US for a couple of years and we never went back. I have been in Augusta Maine for almost 43 years now. Few of our relatives did not communicate. I had to hand write air letters. Then some got Telephone or a computer. I have no time for the computer just only to do my sparking and notes.

It was sunny and hot here nearly all day but in the afternoon there was a very sudden shower with high winds and heavy rains that lasted about 20 minutes. It cleared and dried so fast that half an hour later you would not have believed that it had rained--except for my eyeballs!! Apparently some pollen was in that wind and my eyes felt like they were full of grit, though I had not gone out of the house. This morning they are still somewhat red and very itchy.

I just finished booking my flights to visit my sister and family in Michigan and my friends in Wisconsin. I be gone about 11 days total and am very excited about it. I have taken this trip every year since 1998, when I moved to Florida, except for last year.

My partner has been to the doctor and is doing much better now. I had been holding off on making arrangements until I was sure that her daughter would be able to manage things while I was gone.

It was sunny and mild yesterday until late afternoon when it clouded up and then we got some rain showers. The were nice soft rains. Sounds like a repeat for today. I did my 60 minutes of walking but it was a terrible breathing day yesterday until last night when I finally cleared my airways. Needless to say it was another day with nothing to show for it. Today I feel like doing something. Hope you all have a good day.

Carol, glad the surgery went well. A day of rest will do you good.
Yesterday was a quiet day. My back was tired and I just didn't feel like doing anything. I did get my 60 minutes of walking done and got some groceries. My grandson will mow later so did some weed whacking around where the down spouts go and will finish that today. It was supposed to rain so wanted to be able to put them down again after Marshall was done mowing. Not a very productive day but that is just fine. Hope you all have a good day.

Hi CAROL, a great day of rest helps the body to heal.
I hope you will heal faster if you just take it easy.

Take care.

Hi NAS I hope the heat has lessened and you can be more comfortable. Today we had rain and cold rain. It would have been a great day to spread the grass seed. I was just busy enough to get it then the rain is too heavy. I will try tomorrow.
Stay well NAS, (((HUGS))) Pat in Maine. emoticon

Yesterday was another beautiful day. It wasn't to hot but it was windy. Sounds like our weekend will be rainy and cool. I did do my 60 minutes walking and did a bunch more around the yard. I finished the lilac bush and did a bunch more trimming of the weeds under the fence. It is really hard to get that cleaned out when it get so high. I will get groceries today if I feel like it and not sure what I will do. Hope you all have a good day.

Today has been trying to get to some tomatoes. They were so small I decided I left them there.
I decided to buy some more bricks and it does look nicer. Pat in Maine.
Way too many mosquitoes are getting after me. I always have a hard time because I am an histamine reactor. I cannot take Benadryl any more and so I have to use some antihistamine with me way to go. at in Maine.

Our ground is now saturated!!! Yesterday there was a storm around noon and when I came out to the car it was sitting in a puddle 3" deep and I had to walk very carefully to avoid getting water over the tops of my tennis shoes. There are also some puddles on the ground when it rains now.

Today I plan to do some work in the garden and on my painting project in the laundry part of the garage. Hopefully I can finish sanding wood parts today and give it all a good wash down tomorrow.

I have more energy now that my medicine was increased, though still not as much as usual. My eyes are much better with the dose increase and yesterday I read about a quarter of a book, though the reading was spaced out into several sessions.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Sorry, no heater running. I love the water to be warm but once I am in I swim laps for a while and I am really happy to get in to it.
The huge steps not ladders in the shallow end and so I can sit on the huge steps and just -wiggle my toes. gets over my knees or sitting in the second bottom step and just sit then swim. I love heat not cold.
Our first heat wave has been and gone but I am still happy to get in the pool.
Wish some grand-kids would come but they are too old to have my kind of fun,!

NAS it was a very long day especially for her. I am sure she is 86 and she walks everywhere. She was given an antibiotic and she went to the express care since the Dr could not see her. She sat 2 and a half hours on Monday. She had a very bad rash and she should use Benadryl.
I took her to have her tooth done and it took along time and so she lost her Appointment so now she has to go tomorrow.

She is great spirits but she has spots everywhere on her body and neck.

I am 76 and will hit the double 7's in December. The seventies aren't so bad--for me at least. The problem is that every time you have a birthday, the doctors think you need one more pill to make your day healthier. When I retired at age 67 the only pills I took were Calcium--a total of 4 pills a day. Now, 10 years later, I take 14 pills a day, an average addition of one pill per year.

For me, the only age I really hated was 40. In fact, all the years beginning in 4 were terrible. My goals in life had never included being in my 40's and I found it very depressing. When I hit 50, I felt wonderful. Ever since then, i haven't cared what age I am. I think that for the most part, my energy and stamina depend more upon my health than my age. That is one of many things I like about SPARK--it helps me keep motivated to stay healthy and get the most out of life.
