Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Good morning everyone! I hope your day is great! I don't know what the weather is outside cause I haven't looked, but it doesn't matter to me. I keep some sunshine in my heart for the gloomy days!

hoping we won't have to spend a lot for this and hoping to get it done within the week so we can get back to our own kitchen door and then indoor painting at our house before SS starts.

I am remiss ...we had the greatest help our family... our daughter, our son in law and grandchildren all pitched in.So 30 (man-people) hours spent yesterday. So 30 (man-people) hours spent yesterday.


A band used the room and glued black sound proofing to the windows...why they chose those colors for the room is anyone's guess. I just wish they had removed all the sound-proofing and sheet rock they covered the windows with when they left.

a quiet restful day doing catch up at home. emoticon

We are just back from 6 hours working on the Sunday School room...We had to tear down sound barrier that they had glued to the windows...no small feat as the windows are 6' square and hauled sheetrock and debris down to the dumpster...that is 3 full flights of stairs...I was up and down them so much.... I don't want to count them.

We vacuumed, swept & mopped the floor, layed carpet, and made the circle of folding chairs today.

Now we need to paint at least two walls...they painted the ceiling a maroon, 2 walls dark dark green and 2 dark brown...it will take at least a gallon of klitz primer and one gallon of paint to cover each wall....if we are lucky.

There is an old saying...what doesn't kill you will cure you..
We are looking at covering the green walls...windows on one side with radiators and the opposite one...these green will now be ivory to lighten the room and we hope to get gold drapes by winter...I am thinking I can just get sheers in a gold color for now.

So ivory walls freshly painted and the dark brown walls opposite.
The carpet is a light tan and does deaden the sound in the room as well as pick up the tan in the sofa. For now...that maroon is gonna stay there. ...that ceiling is too darn high!

I have to see if I can take the seat cushion covers off the sofa so I can wash them...I hope I hope as that sofa is grungy... if they don't come off then I shall have to bring my shampooer in and use the furniture attachment to clean it...soon enough for it to dry before Rally Sunday.

There is a bulletin board that needs repair of one of its legs too.
That's it for now we are exhausted- bye

Rain is coming so enjoy today while you can! Gardening should be called "The Never-ending Story"

Today I am grateful for: the cool quiet of the morning AND
That we live in MN...with its .limited time only for blooming plants so we enjoy it to the fullest
We do enjoy all the seasons here...from the Spring with daffodils, tulips and lilacs blooming

to the summer with all the fresh fruits: strawberries, blueberries, melons, veggies, etc and the daylilies, coneflowers, liatris, and roses blooming

to fall/autumn with the chrysanthemums holding court in the gardens as the leaves of red and gold drift slowly down in their colorful dance

to Winter with its blanket of snow that shows us the beauty of flocked trees, ice covered branches that sparkle in the sunlight, the crisp air and the bones of the garden on display

driveway and step have been completed, garage door trim painted and now the trim & molding repair on the kitchen door before painting and then on to working on the roof overhang over the steps

The 4th of July is the day we celebrate our independence from England. The Revolutionary War was fought because the American colonist were taxed without representation.

A nursery near me has huge golden pepper plants emoticon and cauliflower, tomatoes, emoticon etc for...pardon the pun...dirt cheap...$4 for 6 cauliflower and 2 peppers! You might want to check out and see what yours has. These plants are 6 times larger than those I already have in the ground. June just seems to have flew by this year!

Well of course the rain came while visiting my grandson...so now my laundry is rinsing on the clothesline emoticon

Correction: emoticon I received 9 cauliflower plants that are a foot tall with the 2 gold pepper plants for $4 emoticon that is 37 cents a piece emoticon

Don't cross the pollinators: Starting July 1, they're protected by law! Gov. Mark Dayton & legislators enacted 2 laws this spring unique among the 50 states. The first prohibits labeling plants as beneficial to pollinators — such as bees, ants & bats, if those plants have been treated with & have a detectable level of pesticide that is lethal to pollinators. MN is the first state with those types of laws!

rainy morning here...last night the air was so saturated looked like fog I thought we were having hail because the rain came down and was so heavy the raindrops looked like they were half dollar-size raindrops
Our Meteorologist Paul Douglas says this has been the wettest (Jan-May) on record for 144 years!
It is a great day to prep meals for when the sun and heat return.
It is a great day to make lists of things to be done.
It is a great day to organize an area that needs it.
It is a great day to read a book.
A wonderful day to visit the Conservatory or other indoor gardens...even garden centers!
Or even watching a video of gardens around the world.

Wow how fun to have a turtle in your yard!!! We have tortoises, but haven't seen any in the wild. Love them.

Haven't had any time lately. Since Mom fell, she spent 5 days in the hospital, then 5 in rehab and then back to hospital. She's in rehab again, and since she has lived with me 12 years, she wants me there ALOT! Fortunately, Rehab is a complete wing of a Nursing home and only has temporary people there after surgeries etc. She is having fun I think getting to know them, and realizes from them that she isn't permanently staying. We still don't know how to take care of her when she comes home, or how to get out of here to find a new home back in the NW with her disabled now. Lately, I've given up the worry some, and asked God to take care of it.

In other states they are endangered. They are protected in Michigan.

The last few days we have had so many birds visiting our yard or flying over it that include: lots of robins, mated cardinals, goldfinch, blue jay, bald eagle, herons, chickadee, song sparrow, cedar waxwings, heard a catbird or a mocking bird, a little blackbird don't know what it was, and the blue birds are nesting. We have more birds than the aviary around the lakes in Minneapolis! Anyone interested in birding should love Anoka County!

So far 2 dozen daffodils have bloomed plus all my forsythia bushes! Happy Mothers Day! emoticon

My goals to complete this growing season:
working on getting new steps and landing made for kitchen door- our primary access to home with a gable roof overhang to protect the landing from snow & ice. Then a new driveway, emoticon aerating the lawns, bringing compost, horse manure and wood chips to the gardens, removing extra lilacs and old fashioned phlox and emoticon transplanting perennials and re-doing the daylily bed and the blue garden next to the deck.

Did you know that wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and Queen honey bees can sting multiple times. It is only the worker honey bee that can only sting once because they have a barbed stinger that comes out as they sting and they die.

Organizational ideas....I took a colorful plastic tissue box cover and turned it upside down and it holds all the remotes for the TV, VCR, DVD player, roku, etc all together..no more hunting. For my c-pap machine that kept "spitting out" the filters I put a rubber band around the machine and no more dusty nights for me!

Know that I am thinking of you, emoticon and emoticon praying for you, but so far I can't seem to wrap my mind around these changes. emoticon emoticon

I am still busy, but losing lbs and inches little by little. I just had a great drs appt too! They are really happy with my progress with my weight loss and BP. They just cut my Blood pressure medicine in half again so now I just have to take 1/4th of a pill a day. She did suggest that I check out the DASH diet for high blood pressure thought, so going to try to start that today too. I had a bunch of ex ray and I am going to be sent to PT to try to check out my back and side issues, so finally after almost a year, maybe I can get that to stop hurting me.

I have a question, do anyone use natural estrogen? Where do you get it?
My levels are low not bad but I do not want to do the patches the doctor wants me to. I want to try to get them up with a natural cream if I can.
Any thoughts?

New survey shows winter Mexican habitat at smallest on record. Genetically-modified crops in the corn belt is the primary culprit behind the precipitous monarch declines over the past 3 years. At least 167 million acres of monarch habitat has been lost since 1996. www.startribune.com/lifestyle/healt

I am considering keeping Winter themed...i.e. snowmen & snowflakes up until Spring..I like this idea because here in MN we get to celebrate all 4 seasons..albeit sometime all in a short period of time! that said...my sled outside my kitchen door...see my Pinterest Christmas & Winter board for this, my snowmen & snowflakes will celebrate this Season where we are to rest, reflect and enjoy the peace & quiet of the Season as all nature restores its energy to burst forth in Spring with a re-birth- full of beauty and vitality.

What is Christmas ?
 
I love the sights and sounds of Christmas;
Especially, the emoticon church bells as they ring.
They welcome the children of God inside
Where voices unite in praises to sing. emoticon
 
Those beautiful hymns emoticon honor the Savior
Born in a stable long ago.
There, angels proclaimed Him the "Son of God"
And Kings came following the star's emoticon bright glow.
 
Christ came to earth to die on a cross emoticon
In payment for our sin.
Salvation is ours, Heaven is Home;
His gift to those who believe in Him. emoticon
 
What emoticon gift can we lay at the Savior's feet
For our all can ne'er repay?
"Do unto others as I have done for you"
Are the words I hear Him say.
 
He set the example of how to live.
Obedience to His will is due.
I'll share and care for His sheep in need;
Not just today, but all of life through.
 
emoticon Happy Birthday, Lord.  Accept my gift.

I have cooked down the carcass and de-boned it. the meat is in the freezer and the stock is cooling outside so I can remove the fat layer. then the stock will be stored in the freezer for future use. We don't try to eat it all day after day but spread it out and enjoy it in various ways. emoticon The tree & decorations are now up too!

How is everyone's sleep? I just read an article that I think may be of help. It certainly enlightened me about a few foods I had no idea could cause problems sleeping. You know how they say not to eat a meal before bed or even exercising heavily because of how it your body responds to the food? Well here is an article dealing with how to get better sleep and wake up refreshed by avoided these "sleep-sabotaging foods."

This article lists the 8 worst foods to avoid for 3 hours before bed. The foods are not bad foods, they are good in fact but they are bad if enjoyed within 3 hours of bed. The article goes into why they are bad choices if you want a good night’s sleep.

I have listed them here for those that don’t go to links. Avoid for 3 hours before bed:
dark chocolate, steak, alcohol, spicy food, decaf coffee, broccoli or cauliflower, french fries, chili,

For more information about them you will have to go to the link. www.grandparents.com/health-and-well

IT is beautiful outside right now...all the trees and shrubs are flocked with snow. The sun is just coming up and the snow is glistening. It is quiet, peaceful and lovely to see...that said I am glad I was able to get outside to do a bit in the gardens before it came. I am also glad that we have all the staples on hand so we don't have to venture out in this first snow of the season.
Staples...milk, eggs, cereal, dogfood! emoticon

I my self have had a very hard time getting over the death of my beloved grandson in 2008. I miss him every day. It is something you have to learn to not let it take you down. I always try to think of his giving to our lives. He is the one, the Blonde hair in my iID picture here on SP, that is his sister my granddaughter Naomi, with him. she was so close to him.


Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

You have become famous at our house EJ and I am always quoting you to my dh!
So far we are looking to replace the microwaves....how do you feel about convection ovens?
We are going off vaccinations, etc.

EJ I understand where you are coming from...lost my father, aunt and father in law within 3 months of each other the same year and those dates were our daughter's birthday, our anniversary and my birthday. People at church said we should be over it....NEVER...you get on with it but never over the loss of loved ones.

STILL going thru papers, getting rid of electronics we no longer use, etc

I am glad the you all have kept this going. Since the death of 2 family members I have been in a funk and I can't seem to get it together. I am sorry that I have just disappeared but I can't do anything about it now!
Take care everyone!
