Hi NAS, We have a bit of gloomy weather.
It is not cold or even rain but there was half a mile fog in our city.
This is because the storm is out to the ocean and the mist or cloud is very low.
We have had some beautiful weather and after the storm will be gone, we will be going leaf peeping again. emoticon

Today I have very few steps, I had my acupuncture session and the morning was gone.
The afternoon we listened to a lecture and now I am sparking in the late afternoon. NOT Many steps. Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon

Pat in Maine.
I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker.
I will do it slowly I like it that way.
Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip!
JUST DO IT!

Yesterday was a beautiful day with sunshine and 75 degrees and some light wind. I had my doctors appointment with the ENT and it went great. I was in and out in 30 minutes and no change so no biopsy this time. Made me very happy. My son and I had already decided I wouldn't do a biopsy at this time. I did get my 60 minutes walking in and my streak is at 187 days now. I came home from the doctor and did 3 loads of laundry and a few little things around the house. Barb and I went for dinner and had a lovely visit and she will be getting her new puppy on October 6th. They are the ones that had the beautiful Jazz and Winter that they lost within the same year and Kevin has finally decided he can have a new puppy. Winter was a white lab and they are now getting a very light yellow lab that they will call Summer. Barb had told him he couldn't look for another dog to be just like Winter so he said he would like to name her Summer because it is opposite of Winter. He took the dogs death so hard and is so sensitive that I was glad he finally decided to get another dog. She is a little cuttie.

Good Morning!

Starting out at 60 degrees this morning. Should get into the 80's with thunderstorms this afternoon. Pat, I hope that Hurricane Jose doesn't have much effect on you folks in the NE!

I got in almost 7000 steps yesterday between hanging out clothes, walking around the garden center and planting the mums I got!

Carol/CA - I'm sorry you had to take Scarlett back. Have you thought about getting a dog? I knew that CA had a lot of teams, but did not realize they had 4!

Sharon - looks like most of our teams lost! The Packers are going to have to contend with injuries again this year from the looks of it. Had hoped Jordy Nelson would come back healthy, but he went out in the 1st quarter.

I have WW this morning, then off to the gym. After that it will be home to vacuum and dust!

Embrace the Day!

Good Monday morning. It is cooler this am but supposed to get close to 90* by mid week. I like the cooler. I tracked this weekend but I still need to work on my water and moving. I am working on an afghan for my niece for her wedding (Oct. 21st) so I find myself sitting more. I need to take more breaks and move!!! Hope everyone has a good day. Sue

Morning ladies,

Well it seems that our teams lost. Gee LA finally has a team, actually we now have 2 teams which seems strange. What used to be SD Chargers are now LA Chargers and Rams.

So now CA has 4 teams and 3 lost yesterday, the only winner was Oakland Raiders...so sad emoticon

Boo hoo, taking my grand dog back home this morning. Having a dog to take on walks sure helps 100% for me to reach my step goal and challenge with Fitbit.

Gotta get bills paid and clean up stuff, make phone calls...you get it. Weather is great, 74 degrees.

Have a healthy day

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

Julie, glad to hear that there was little damage and that your electricity is back on. It is a shame about the gardens but they can be replanted and cleanedup. Yesterday started out in the 40's, cloudy, and light wind. In the afternoon the sun came out and it warmed up to 62 so the warm up is beginning. It won't get hot but in the 70's is perfect. It looks like we might get some more rain this week so that will be good. I did my 60 minutes of walking so my streak is still going. I did a few little things around the house but did not do much else. I did watch the Vikings get beat and it was brutal and so depressing. Looks like a bad year for us again. I did a little reading and also put a few stitches in my cross stitch. Love the quiet days.

Good Morning!

Julie - happy to hear that you are okay and that the electricity has been repaired so you have air conditioning! Sorry to hear about your gardens!

Went to church and watched football yesterday. Packers lost! emoticon Oh well, there is next week!

Today I am going to get the mums for my flower gardens and get them planted, laundry (hang out the whites), and a walk! Temps should be in the 80's, sunny, higher humidity; but no rain - will also have to water!

Hope everyone has a terrific day!

Yesterday turned out to be another cool, misty and windy day. It was cooler yet at only 55 degrees. I guess fall is really here. We will start to warm up to more normal temperatures now for the next week. It was a very lazy Saturday. I did zero work around the house or yard. I read and finished a book and napped in my chair. I did do my 60 minutes of walking. That is a must for me. It felt great. LOL. Have a good Sunday.

Good Morning!

I did get out and worked in my flowers yesterday. It was also my 70th birthday so hubby took me out to my favorite Italian restaurant - even though he doesn't like Italian....he had burger and fries! Watched the TN football team lose to FL in the last seconds of the game...disappointing!

Pat, I love walking in the woods in the fall - allergies sometimes don't like it, but oh well, I don't worry about that until after the fact! emoticon

Carol/CA - good that you and Scarlett are getting your exercise. Those dogs can keep you active!

Today will be a quiet day - church and then home for NFL football. The Packers won't be on until later this afternoon (4 PM here) but there will be other games on that we can watch. Since we went out last night will not stop anywhere for lunch.

Weather should be in the upper 80's again today.

Enjoy your day!

Today Was Saturday so we went to the mountains to look for Leaf peepers and there are as many as we were. There are very few leaves off the trees but there are some crimson and they are my personal favorite because they are making a great contrast with the pines.

This is the beginning and so we might go further North if the weather is this warm it is a really big bonus.
We were out almost all day and it was a nice time.
However I am very much behind but it was a good time. emoticon DAY ! emoticon
I had already walked with my Walking buddy and I got over 7100 steps and when I got back home we decided to do some Leaf peeping.
Now I might catch up with my Sparking.
Steps are now 8018.Pat in Maine. Will have to get some Spark points. P

Wishing everyone a fantastic Saturday. Already had Scarlett for her 1st morning walk and fed her. Sure is much easier reaching my step goal with a little dog.

We are back to summer here in southeast Iowa. Has been close to 90* the last few days and is supposed to be like that today also. I am a fall person so I am not real happy with this stuff. Oh well, can't do anything about it. I am very disappointed in myself right now. I have just completely ignored anything and everything related to weight loss. I don't know what my problem is but I need to find some motivation somewhere.

Hope everyone has a good weekend. Sue

Yesterday was cool and only in the low 60's. It was cloudy, breezy and it drizzled and misted all day. I did very little because the humidity bothered my breathing. My yard is not large but with the Copd it takes longer and seems harder than if I was a healthy person. I did enjoy the day and did a little reading. I even took a nap in the afternoon. Have a great weekend.

Good Morning!

Not much going on today. Finished going through my sisters jewelry, so will send back the ones that had stamps on them. My BIL and his niece can decide how to handle them. I'm glad that is done!

Today I want to get out and work in the yard as I didn't make it yesterday. Lots to get it ready for winter!

Hope you all have a fantastic day!

Morning ladies,

Carol- the event was packed, we brought 50/50 tickets but emoticon , but did get my annual Tshirt.

Today: besides what must be done, I have a new class at the senior center, Line Dancing, sure hope I can do the turns without my knee acting up.

Good Morning!

63 this morning - will get up into the upper 80's today. I like the high 70's, low 80's better, but will take what we get!

I checked on line and JoAnn's has a knitting course that I can take. I didn't see any sewing classes though. I did see that the internet has a lot of on-line classes for just about anything you want to learn!

Carol/CA - I imagine Scarlett was very happy to see you! Our DS is hunting so we have full charge of his dog, Rocky. I've taken him for a walk the last couple of days - it helps me get in my steps and it tires him out!

That is a great fund raiser for the Special Olympics! How did it turn out? We have a friend that trains guys for the weight lifting competition in the Special Olympics - has been doing it for years and says it is more rewarding than anything he has done!

Pat - boy, that is a long ride if you have a dog that gets car sick. Our sons dog does okay on short trips, but not longer ones! Interesting that they like carrots. We had a shepard that loved onions! This one doesn't like veggies, just meat!

Not sure what today will bring. Need to try and finish going through my sisters jewelry to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Have a good one!

Yesterday was much cooler, and less humid. I did my 60 minutes of walking and I got out and cleaned the bird baths and refilled them. I did the hand weeding around the garage and hoed. I cut some of the dead stuff off the climbing roses. I was tired by then so came in and did some little things around the house. It was a good day.

The dogs were found in Las Vegas around the time our sons come back to Maine.
They took them to the police station.
Our son loves BEAGLE and his last one was attacked by a big dog. The people did not want to have their dog destroyed so they took a vet from California because the Beagle broke it's back. The people paid the vets bill but the dog was a really good dog but after a few years his back legs were too weak to stand. I never thought he would want another dog.
They took the strays and they had to stay another month till the police could have them. A Beagle and a Chihuahua.
They drove in the car with the dogs, the Beagle gets car sick and so the drive was long in February in snow storms but they said it was a good vacation.
Now they have been living in our basement and I lost my sewing room. I love the dogs they go to bed with the family and when the family are out they are upstairs and I spoil them with good real food. No human treats but good I like to feed them protein and they love carrots.
I love these dogs. Pat in Maine.

Morning ladies,

Pat, how many dogs do you have?

This morning I go and pick up my grand dog Scarlett, she will be with us until Monday morning. Love the little thing and boy won't have any problem getting in my steps for my fitbit goal.

Tonight we have what is called "Tip a Cop Dinner", it is where the police become our servers at Claim Jumper. The money goes to Special Olympics which they sponsor, always fun

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

Good Morning!

Rained yesterday afternoon so didn't make it out to work on the flower beds - maybe today.

I have decided to look into taking some sewing or knitting classes. Will have to see what is available at JoAnn's. Hate the thought of driving into the city, but I need to learn something new. I guess I am feeling stagnant!

Sharon, glad to hear that your back is better! Don't overdo~
Pat, did you get your posts repositioned? The frost can do a number on brick pavers and posts, that's for sure.

Today I am going to clean the bathrooms and make some soup. Got through all of my sisters rings yesterday. Today I will go through her other jewelry to make sure I didn't miss anything that might be of value. Then I can package up the good stuff and send it back to my brother-in-law and give the rest to the women's organization. Hoping to have that all done by the middle of next week.

Have a good one!

Nas, hope you hear something soon. It is not easy to wait.
Yesterday it was cooler but still very humid. I think we are getting some of the smoke from the fires in Montana and Canada. Makes breathing hard. I stayed inside except to water the flowers. I did my 60 minutes of walking and some small projects around the house. Not too active but did read some and put a few stitches in my cross stitch. Back is finally back to normal.

emoticon NAS, I had a great time using a sledge hammer to pound the posts around the pool AND where the dogs stay there and run around.

The winter squeezes the post up to the ground and the chain links might allow the Chihuahua to get under the fence.

HUGS NAS, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Morning ladies,

Saying prayers for those in Houston and Florida, some had power returned while others it could be weeks. Hopefully Julie is fine, just without power.

Today going for a mani/pedi and run those errands that just keep coming.

Have a healthy day emoticon

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

Good Morning!

The bulk of rain went west of us, so we didn't get as much as we thought. It did get windy though....lots of small branch and leaves down in our driveway.

Sharon, hope your weather is more on the mild side for you today. I think we finally rounded the corner on our hot weather and should be seeing more moderate temps from now on.

Pat, what a nice story about your friend and their son. Was happy to hear that he made it out safely! Such a sad time for so many people~

Carol/CA - hope your appointment went well and that you had a nice visit with your Mom!

Julie - Just heard that it could be weeks before power was reestablished in certain areas! Stay safe....another gal I talk to said that her cousin held up in her bathtub with wine coolers and Oreo cookies!

Grocery shopping, gym and hopefully get outside today to do some weeding and getting the flower beds ready for fall/winter.

Everyone have a happy day!

Hope everyone is safe and that they will be back with us soon. Yesterday was very warm and humid with light breeze. It got to 93 and dewpoint was 67. I did my walk and got out early and watered the flowers, cleaned the bird baths and refilled them. I also fed the birds and squirrels. I did a few little things around inside during the hot afternoon and then went out for dinner with Barb. Nice visit with her. I fell asleep in my chair somewhere after 9 last night and that is where I stayed. LOL.

We have some people who had just gone down to Naples and we cannot contact them. They lived in Maine and we were good friends. Her DH was wanting to go to the warmth. His wife died and he still comes back to his house nearby, we are hoping to get to another friend this weekend and perhaps he might come back to Maine for a while.
So many friends went there and I hope my address book will help. Pat in Maine.

It will be nice to hear from Julie.

NAS I had a friend who I sew for and he was the Attorney General here. His wife used to come to my shop and we both worked every three months for our Public Broadcasting System. We both volunteered together when it was in it's infancy.
Their son went to The twin towers and his mother came in to chat with me because her son had called on his cell phone. He told his mother he was walking down the stairs using cell phones for light. He was very high up and so he called his mother to tell her and his Dad he loved them.
She did not know he was in the building and she came over to my shop.
She did not hear from after that. Her husband and she went home and later that night she called and in tears she said Andrew is alive. We cried happy tears together.
Andrew stayed in NY and his parents are gone. Pat in Maine.
Still waiting for news from Naples. Pat in Maine. emoticon

Good Morning!

Made it to the gym yesterday; which felt really, really good! Finished the laundry -
folded and put away; and also looked up some soup recipes - didn't find much on the WW site, but found a bunch of WW recipes on Pinterest. Two that I am going to try are the broccoli and cheese soup and a hamburger soup. Will get the ingredients I don't have tomorrow when I do our weekly shopping.

Today is WW, walk on the treadmill and then continue going through my sisters jewelry. Want to get that all done by the end of the week so I can send the valuable pieces back to my BIL and donate the rest. I will go through everything one more time to make sure I didn't miss anything too.

Hope you all have a good day!

Yesterday it warmed up and we had 82 degrees, sunny with very light breeze. Nice day. I feel better today and did 3 loads of laundry and a little cleaning. I did my 60 minutes of walking. I watched the first season game for the Vikings last night and was pleasantly surprised when they won the game. I really wasn't expecting a win. Hope they have a good year but not looking good. Have a great day.

Yesterday was warm, windy and sunny. It got to 87 with a little humidity,. It will be warm for another 3 days and then cool down again. They say that it is because of Irma. I did my 60 minutes of walking and a few other small projects inside. My back is healing slowly but much better. Hope the storm is over and soon things will be back to normal.

Good Morning!

Today will be a busy day for me. Have laundry to do, house to straighten up, sewing room to clean, and menu for next week to make out. We will be getting back to the gym today as well and I want to look up some soup recipes and make sure I have the ingredients. I find that is more filling than a sandwich for lunch.

Between the hurricanes and fires there is all sorts of help needed for our country. Seems as though the rest of the world is hurting as well! On this 9/11 we remember all those souls lost in the attack too! It makes a person wonder what this world is coming to.

Have a safe day!
Carol/TN

Hi NAS, we are at the end of the US. We live more NORTHERN from a lot of Canadians do.

We get cold in fall and winter but we did a very small tornado a year last year.

I too am feeling for so many people who will have nothing when they get back to their homes demolished. It is awful to watch and they know how awful it is.
Southern US and the Caribbean have been devastated and so far there are other countries that I know of will not help.
I wish we could do something to help. I hope to check with the red cross and see if there is a way to give a little help. If a lot of little people can help to give that would be something to offer. Pat in Maine

HUGS NAS, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
