Hi, glad to hear from all of you. You are one busy bunch! Sorryto hear of Ree's DH problem though.

Me too! Busy that is.
We got a call this morning that we have overnight guests coming about noon. So we whipped in to action around here.
DH vacuumed while I did up the breakfast dishes and made a double batch of my Apple muffins . Also scrambled to see what was available in the freezer that they might like. For lunch--Found tomato soap and veggie soup so I just combined the two.
Got that going In big pot on stove with added veggie broth .

Guests called again and said they wouldn't be here for lunch after all as they were visiting a cousin on the way. That's ok. We ate the soup and it was delicious.

DD has returned now from going to get her flu shot. They always have to be extra careful with her as she has had reactions in the past. They gave her a children's version in each arm and she is ok so far.

We plan to take them to a nice restaurant this evening and other family members may join us there if available.

I didn't get my walking or a Elliptical or Stationary Bike or weights either done today. Will pick up where I left off after they leave tomorrow:) no problem. Our guests thought we were leaving right away for TEXAS as originally planned and wanted to see us before we left. (With all the follow up DR appointments around here, we can't leave now TIL into November.)

I hope Marsha gets her sleep tonight!

Will try to keep you posted.
Hugs, Pat

Irene, thanks. Got home from getting hair done, and I had to stop and get my bracelet that Geo. and Karen brought me from Vegas sized, Judy had already made a trip with some things, and is coming again with another load,

Not sure I will get a nap this afternoon or not. Don't want to take one too late, or I won't sleep tonight either.

I am trying something new and do my sparking in the morning when possible. Evenings I don't seem to find the motivation.

With time hope to catch up on everyone. Have a good day and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Irene, thanks. I couldn’t go to sleep last night, got up and fixed me some hot chocolate, went back to bed and got to sleep around 2:30. Work up at 7:30 so got up as I get hair done this morning. Judy will also be here with another car load.

It is froggy out this morning, and a little cool. Took Ginger out, she is always glad when I get up this early. Of course she is back sleeping. J

Ree. Sorry about your DH having a UTI. No fun. Hope you can get some rest.

Lois, hope you can finish your project today. When we get that close to finishing we want to get it done. I am usully tired of the pattern,, etc by then.

Irene, thanks for the Good night. I will be in for a nap this afternoon. My back has really been hurting me, and need to go to the chiropractor, but after the treatment I do things I know I shouldn’t and hate to put out the money.

Have to go and get a shower and dressed for hair appointment. Judy will either come around 9:30, or after I get home from beauty shop. I need to drop off a bracelet at the jewelry store to see if they can make smaller for me. I told my Son that was the only small thing about me. My wrists. They brought it from Las Vegas, and is beautiful gold and pink pearls. I may have to wear as an ankle bracelet for dress if they can’t make it smaller.

TTYAL. Have a great day. We have a lot to be thankful for.

Thank you all for your support. Still trying to finish the knitting project for church, but it should be done tomorrow.

I really need to sign on to Sparks during the day as I find by evening I am not motivated to try and catch up. Have an early morning errand tomorrow, and sparking as soon as I get home.

Checking in before I hit the sack. I am tired tonight, I go and get hair done in the morning, and Judy will bring some more things to take upstairs.

The weather has been wonderful, still have the AC on during the day, and the one in my BD at night. I like a cold bedroom.

Hugs and prayers to all. Have a good night's rest.

Yay! Monday is finally here! The day that DD in Texas will visit and take pictures of our prospective little dog!
I am just like a little kid anticipating opening a gift! :):)
If we like her, the owner of ShihTzu Country will save her for us.
If I can figure out how to post her picture, I will let you help us decide too.

Good for you, LOIS!
What a great trip you had!
And your friends really did take very good care of you.!
It was wise to stay back with your book when you had already seen the movie.
Not over doing it is important too.
We know you are busy but we we still hope you keep us posted on your interesting
Life.
Hugs, Pat

I do apologize for not signing in and checking everyone out, but have just taken some down time for myself. Have been doing some knitting for the Holiday Fair at my church and doing a lot of reading. Of course, that means I am sitting way too much and the computer is more or less off limits.

Yes, Pat the trip up north was really fun. The gals that own the one cottage also rented another one plus a bed and breakfast place so that everyone had their own bed. They took very good care of me and I got a main floor bedroom right off the bathroom. One of the gals wasn't able to join us as she was having some major pain issues. We were all especially happy that one of the gals who lost husband a few months ago was able to join us. There was a lot of conversation and much laughter. They choose to go and see Gone Girl on Saturday afternoon, but having read the book and really wanting a nap I stayed at the cottage. The one really special thing about this group is that you have a choice on what you want to do and that is just okay with everyone. They are a blessing to me each and everyone of them.

I am rambling on, but wanted you to know I am doing okay. I am probably as good as it is going to get, but so much better than what it was. Will be back on board soon. emoticon emoticon

Good night to all.

Pat, I hope you find the right doggie for you. No, I wouldn't want a puppy either to train. Too old for that. There are some adult dogs that would love to have a good home.

I am headed to bed. My allergies, or sinus has been bothering me. I just took an allergy pill, and hope I get up with less misery.

Hugs and prayers to all.

I am glad to see you posting , Marsha, but sorry you have had headaches. I hope that they are all gone now and you feel great again!v
I have hopeful news about our search for a young ShihTzu to help fill the gap in in our loss of beloved POOCHIE. I contacted the our groomer in TEXAS who always cared for Poochie's beauty needs there. She also raises adorable Shihtzu puppies but We are not looking for a puppy as it would need to be house trained . She is willing to sell us one of her older ShihTzu dogs, age 5 . She will send us pictures and so will our a Texas DD who plans to visit Monday!
Will keep you posted:)
Hugs, Pat

Good evening to all. Been another busy day. Judy got some more things moved in, and tomorrow she is going to bring some potted plants that she has to set by her entrance. She brought us each a hot pocket for lunch, and I had some fat free pringles.
I have had this headache all day. I got a lot done, changed the bed linens, washed the ones I took off, and the comforter. Had another load of wash. Got everything all dried and put away.

Geo. and Karen got home from Vegas, and he called, he texted me a couple times a day, and also Karen while they were gone. He will be here tomorrow sometime to mow the yard. It should slow down growing soon.

The weather was beautiful today. Might be my allergies that is giving me the headche. I did mop some and used pinesol and it seemed to be too strong a smell.

Hope everyone has a good night's rest. I also have been thinking of Mani, and wondering if everything is ok.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Ree wonderful that you got a night out. You really do need that.
Also good that Maurice takes a show. Sometimes I had a difficult time getting Charles to take a shower or shave. He always said I already did that.

Hello on Friday, thanks for your good wishes and prayers, life is changing rapidle. I am taking one day at atime. I did have an evening out last night, supper and chat with book club friends. Maurice was alright watching tv but is confusing tv with reality now.
I am just waiting for him to have a shower then help his to dress and set him up for breakfast.
Have a peaceful weekend , Ree

Hi Roberta-- we are glad to hear you are taking control ! I hope you are catching up on your sleep today too!
Sorry about your HALLOWEEN candy problem. Maybe the rest of us can learn from this.
I already discussed this with DD and we decided this year to only buy candy that we can resist ourselves. So we
plan to buy bags of suckers instead of the Snickers bars that were our weakness:)
I hope you are feeling better this evening.
Hugs, Pat

Well.....I am taking control!!! This morning I cancelled my SAGE appointments after a bad night. I need TIME OUT!!! Time to catch up with me. Did not get to sleep until after 6:00 a.m., clock alarm woke me at 8:00, called to cancel appointment, but the office was not open until 8:30. Back to bed, woke up later to call again; cancelled the rest of my appointments. Now at 11:41 a.m., the dishwasher is working, bacon is frying, and I am anticipating a tasty paleo breakfast.

I made the mistake of buying Halloween candy last week and couldn't resist that big bag of goodies, so last night, I took what was left and put it on a coffee table in the lobby for all to enjoy. Just in case there are any little visitors Halloween night, I will have fruit on hand.

Gotta get a grip on my behavior, and catch up with myself.
Love to all, Roberta

Brian and his family have been so kind to me over the years. They are from the church. I have no relatives close. They live in other states.
Yes, I know it is difficult when you are anxious to travel for everything to go wrong but maybe there is a purpose. Maybe the dentist is better????????????

I had a temporary front tooth put on at dentist office before breakfast this morning. I was instructed to be very careful not to bite with that tooth. So I was very conscious to not do that!
And Ate all soft foods. For BR and lunch.
I had just finished soup and canned fruit for lunch and the temporary fell off.
I am just getting back from getting it reattached !
Wonderful!

Sorry to hear that. You might want to call your pastor to see if the church has people willing to drive folks to their appointments. We have that service here as one of our friends has done that for years.
Hugs,, Pat
Another thought-you can go on "Map quest" on your computer and it will give you directions right to the door and back. If you prefer to drive yourself.

My GI doctor called today to confirm my appointment for tomorrow at 9:30. I told them I didn't think I could go. It is a long way and I don't even know how to get there. My transport took me there once and got lost and went round and round. I have never been there except for that time.
Glad things are going well for you.

Back to our adoptaDog hunt.

The caretaker lady was right. We drove the 50 some miles to another town to visit the cute little Yorkshire dog that us up for adoption. We took Precious, now our DD's dog , with us to meet the Yorkshire. ( Precious loves everybody and other dogs too ) but the little Yorkshire wanted to kill poor Precious.

So the possible adoption is off. Back to the search for us.
We think we will wait TIL we are settled back in TEXAS. !!

Hello again I had a few days with limited connection but now I am back in circulation with a lot of catch up to do, I will do so asap buy I'm alright and hope you all are,
Texas was mentioned , I had a marvellous gift swap from Texas this week. It's via cross stitch group which have secret gift swaps, I was given the name of a stitcher in that state. We chatted in line to get to know each other, then sent parcels it mainly cross stitch supplies. We are both happy with our gifts, one thing in my parcel was a pack of playing cards with a Texan theme . I sent her English theme gifts , it's exciting to receive these parcels.
I will catch up as soon as I can on team news. Ree

Good news from my checkup with my pulmonary specialist this morning!
All is well. The asthma issues I had this spring are gone and I just have to continue using the symbicore inhaler to keep everything that way.

Oh we are excited around here' because we just got approved ( so far) to go visit the cutest little Yorkshire dog that is up for adoption in another town. The caretaker e-mailed that she is concerned that the Yorkshire and DD's dog Precious might not get along. Have set up an appointment to take Precious ( who loves everybody) down to meet them on FRI. Afternoon.
So our whole doggie future hinges on whether the two dogs are compatible.
Wish us luck!
Will keep you posted.
Pat
I am glad that the agencies are fussy about the well being of all the dogs in their care, though.
We also filled out a form about a foot long so we were excited to get this far. I pray child adoptions are as thorough!

Congratulations, Marsha on shedding two pounds.

Irene---how did your doctor visit go today????

Roberta-glad your PT is going so well and hope tomorrow goes even better!!!

Had a good and long session with my PT yesterday and started on my assigned exercises this afternoon. Will get organized to do all of them tomorrow. Felt depressed today and wondered why until I looked at the calendar--this is the second day in the Full Moon Crazy Days. Felt better after that--as I am healthy and doing well--nothing to complain about. I noticed yesterday that drivers were doing some risky driving actions. Love, Roberta emoticon

I did not know about full moons until a few years ago when I had to see a doctor about a whiplash after another car rear-ended mine at a stop. He said they always marked their calendars for five days around a full moon--two before as well as two after--because their office became more busy.

Hi Mani-I hope you are ok. You may still be at the resort with the family and your DGGGD Zara may still have your I-Pad:)

Oh how about the new arrival in London?

LOOKING forward to when you can chat again.
Lots of catching up to do.

Hugs, Pat

Hi Marsha, thanks for the encouraging words.
You spoke of feeding Ginger
. We miss our little POOCHIE so much that we are looking to adopt a Small dog( -shihtzu breed or mix) from either the shelter here or the one in TEXAS. Have been going on line between the
Shelters to see what's available at the moment. .no hurry. The right doggie will show up eventually.
We may leave our Precious with DD here as the dog adores her:) ( and vice versus) and she certainly deserves her!
Hugs, Pat

Pat I hope some day by a miracle my ammonia levels go down. Wednesday I see the doctor about my readout on the ultrasound on the liver and kidneys.
As long as the ammonia levels are high I have to take this medication.

Irene-My only problem was the morning after - after taking the milk of Magnesia - prescribed
To NEVER get constipated while my bowel surgery has been healing.

Many mornings after the M of M I was very busy running to the bathroom for a couple of hours!
I am doubly thankful to have those days behind me. !!

Now if I ever think I need it I have been prescribed a much gentler laxative--
MiraLax

We watched the movie Romeo and Juliet tonight. Done by the writer of Downton Abbey.Very sweet, a re-enactment of the real Shakespeare story. Our neighbor sent it over as we share our movies quite often with her family .as well.

We had a very nutritious dinner tonight-steamed red and green chopped cabbage with sautéed
Onions, carrots and chopped baked potatoes in the colorful dish. A side of baked beans
It made a large batch so we have 6 meals in the freezer. Cruciferous veggies daily are recommended to prevent cancer.

Thanks Marsha for your well wishes. I hope you are doing well too.

Hugs, Pat

Pat, so great you had good news from the Doctor. You have done so well. Whatever you are doing, keep it up. It is working.

Hope you and DH have a great evening. Cooler here this morning, a litle warmer tomorrow. I love this time of year.

Got to go and feed Ginger.

Today I had my follow up appointment with prolapse surgery doctor .
Happily I passed inspections:)

Sadly He said there is always a chance of its recurrence And made recommendations on how to prevent it.

I have done so well-DD called him "Our hero" when he walked into room.
He said if I ever have questions to call his nurse-even from TEXAS!

Yes, I do have ideas.

The Depends fIt perfectly and were secure but I helped keep them stay fresh all day by using Long thin "Always " pads inside the Depends which I changed friequently!

As for the bra- just don't wear one and wear looser shirts instead.
Our comfort is more important than our vanity, for sure!

The bra situation is that I have one that hangs down way below the other one and it looks bad. Do you have any ideas?

Tomorrow morning I have to rise really early as I have a follow up appointment with my surgeon and he is 40 minutes away. And the appointment is at 9:00 AM.
I am feeling super great so he should be proud:)

Oh we are sorry for your present situation, Irene.
If you haven't discovered them already, DH and I really enjoyed the security of "Depends"
Panties during our recent illnesses! They are absolutely peace of mind!
As for the bra- who said you have to wear one?

Hello girls. Week ends are lonely for me. I can't sit too long in one position at a time and with the medication they give me to get my ammonia levels down I have to go to the bath room lots and sometimes don't make it in time. All of that and with my bra fitting over the vertebrae I broke and hurting me so bad it is difficult for me to get out. I am almost housebound.

Good evening to all. I am tired, been a busy day with church, coffee hour, and then Judy brought another load of things to put upstairs. She did all the work. I work up tired as I didn't sleep. Got up this morning and saw where I hadn't taken my medicine at bedtime. Have felt bad all day.

Pat, what I am going to do is get small plants for special holidays. I will buy a MUM plant for Thanksgiving (fall), a poinsettia for Christmas, etc.

Hope all had a good day, and will be on sometime tomorrow.
Nighty night, sweet dreams to all.

Irene--thanks, yes we enjoyed our dinner that DD#3 and hubby brought us last night. HAWAIIAN Fajitas from El Rancho restaurant . Called Hawaiian because they have generous amounts of pineapple. (I am careful not to choose the meat added to the mix for my fajita) From experience they knew how large the servings are so ended up bringing only one order and sharing with the 4 of us-still had leftovers!!!
They also brought along a comedy movie called "chef" which we enjoyed with them as well.
( our Caretaker DD was off babysitting our beautiful GGC so she was in seventh heaven herself:)

Marsha, have you found just the right memorial plant to put in new spot in your yard created by downed tree, yet? What a wonderful thing to do.

Roberta, your practice of Ethical Hedonism helps with stress management as well.
Speaking of grains, DD served us up our favorite breakfast cereal this morning -Steele Cut Oats .
Oh! I was impressed with all the steps you reported the other day!! You are WAY ahead of me but that's ok!

REE, has your new I-Pad materialized yet? I know that if anything happened to mine I would be looking in to buying a new one even if I had to buy it for myself. This one was a gift from all my
DD'S! For a BD. I

There is a cute story attached to how I ended up with this I-Pad. All my DD'S were together in a restaurant in Colorado and were musing about what they could all get for me for my impending BD. A gentlemen who was sitting at the next table heard their various thought. He actually
Pulled his chair over to their table and said" I couldn't help overhearing you discussing choices for your elderly mother for her BD. I recently purchased an I-Pad for mine-and she absolutely loves it!" So the girls all went to-gether on this one- and I couldn't be happier . !!!
Oh one of my DD's let the gentleman know they did it and thanked him again:):):)

Peggy, the sun is finally shining here but very nippy outside. How is it there? We have more rain in the forecast though.

Trapper2000, thinking of you. My DH is almost back to his old self now. Anxious to get out to mow the that yard again, but thankfully it has been too rainy so far :) let us know how you are doing.

Mani, that was so thoughtful of your DH to go to the resort so as not to let your kids down.!
So glad you were able to enjoy their company INSPITE of the challenges.
Any news yet from your new family addition?

I didn't get enough steps in yesterday to to hardly register on my step counter. Today I will set my timer and start purposely walking again-5 min. Walks, 5 minutes rests , etc.

Green tea with added honey seems to be helping me get my normal voice back. Yay!

Got to get going- first shine the sinks and take care of clean dishes. I time that as well:):)
This is all part of my personal Ethical Hedonism:)

Hugs, Pat

Hi friends, just checking in before another DD and her hubby arrive with a favorite treat for our dinner. They are picking up Hawaaiin Fajitas from one of our favorite MEXICAN restauants.
They must be getting us ready for our trip to TEXAS:):)

Good for you , Irene, " know thyself" not overdoing it--is wise indeed!

Mani, it sounds like you are doing the same. Taking care of yourself and DH by getting your rest after that long trip but still taking part with your wonderful family is the way to go. Enjoy!

Marsha, I did what I mentioned I might do. This morning I made up a delicious Split pea soup but mine is a little different from yours. I found I didn't have the required amount of dried split peas so finished out with lentils. Still delicious! Thanks for making me hungry, with your soup prep!

I 'm sure Lois is enjoying her trip to upper Minnesota! Looking forward to hearing all about it.

Roberta, there really are some great grains out there for gluten intolerant folks like you. you might check out -, high protein, nutty flavored spelt, hulled barley for soluble fiber, Steele cut oats, we love around here, buckwheat for pancakes, to name a few. Any of them interest you?

Oh -the kids arrived with our dinner-talk later.

Hugs, Pat
