Fay I can completely understand. Stress can make you sick and you have to do some things.
Remember I took a leave of absence to do taxes. Need to do more office work myself.
We will be here when you can return and if you need us let us know.

Guess what? It was suppose to be rain for us, but no, you know what is falling! And, today DDIL came over to help be bring out my spring and summer clothes. Go figure! We also went and had lunch at Red Lobster which is one of our favorite places.

Because I have been able to have one of the young gals that clean in our building clean for me, my DDIL is not going to be scrubbing and cleaning any more. Instead she will help me with some other projects and just have fun together.

Irene et al,

I have decided to concentrate on finishing my tasks here at home and even forego reading most of the team news for awhile. Paper work is still coming in and I just can't keep up with it. So it is time to get down to serious business so that this stressful time will be taken care of.

I will anxiously look to returning and will keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers.

Lois,
That weather you recently experienced made its way all the way to SE PA. Maybe 2 degrees warmer but some ice on shrubbery and trees along with that unmentionable stuff on the roof.

I really thought with Easter being so late this year that it should be a lovely, warm day. Instead this is one of the longest winters that I remember.

Lois, I know what you mean about the bones aching. I get up in the morning stiff and sore. Takes me till noon to really get around good. I take a couple tylenol, and it eventually helps. I am headed to bed. Have to get groceries in the morning. Geo. Jr. will be here Thursday to mow and edge. We had rain today, and that don't help the bones either.

Sure wish this weather would settle down. Was down to 28 last night - chilly and windy today and rain and that stuff I don't want to say are expected starting sometime tonight. This up and down stuff isn't very good for my 85 year old bones - today was not a very good one. Between heating pad on the back and icepack on the knee, I didn't move around much today. I'm sure my body is getting very confused!!!

Wishing all well!

Thank you Lois. I wrote a blog about all that happened from when I got sick until now.
I won't say too much here as it would be a repeat.
I watched "the Voice" I don't like the cussing the guys do but like the competition and some of the singers.

I totally dropped out yesterday, Took several naps, read the paper, watched TV and took a couple more naps. I did a little sparking, but that was about it. Some days I just don't want to deal with getting moving, but today is much better.

Will be channel surfing to watch DWS and The Voice tonight. I tell my family that in my next life I am going to be a singer and dancer, The only singing I have done is in a church choir. And for dancing, I dated a fellow at once time who was a fantastic dancer, but all I had to do was follow. Ah, those were the days! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Irene, I hope you are feeling better!

Just got back from dinner with my daughter. We usually do this on the weekends when her DH has to work. I love it as it gives us some time just for ourselves, even through I see her every Saturday at coffee. Coffee today was just the adults no little ones joined us, that is kind of nice once in a while.

Hope everyone feels better - tummy problem are no fun as you well know.

That makes three of us.
I slept most of the day. Most of the morning, got up and got ready to get my hair done but I had diarrhea so bad I took an Imodium. It helped. Came home. Was supposed to go to a b/d party for a little boy who turned 4 and I am the nana of. I called his grandpa and told him I was sick. He said not to worry. It was so bad I was afraid to go. I went back home and slept the rest of the day. Just got up. Probably won't go to church tomorrow. I never miss church but I just can't go like that.

Pat, I was fine when I woke up, but my tummy has been bothering me also. Geo. Jr. had a trade show yesterday and when he got home last night, he started throwing up, and continued for quite awhile. Not feeling too swift today he said. He thinks it was food poisoning, he had ate a sausage sandwich there at the Trade Show.

I got the cakes all wrapped up and put in the freezer, Have a plate of sliced pieces for coffee hour tomorrow.

Nothing on TV on Sat. afternoon, don't really know if there is anything on tonight.

Hope everyone has a good evening.

Taking a break so thought I would drop in. I just took Ginger out, and have 4 loaves of Banana Bread in the oven. I will freeze 2 for Easter, and take 2 to church tomorrow, one for coffee hour, and one for a man that does a lot of volunteer work around the church. I think sometimes we forget to say thank you.

Have a good afternoon, and enjoy something you like to do.

Busy day! Spent a couple hours at church today getting all the bulletins for the coming Easter week. Eyes injection day so the rest of the day is doing pretty much nothing. Today has not been a very good day - not sure if it is the weather or just one of those days. Of course did a little more walking than usual and am finding my shoulders hurt a little which I suppose is from using the walker. Tomorrow will be a good day because it is coffee group day and one of my friends is back from Florida and will be back joining us.

Pat, the first rose of summer, how special. Roses are my favorite, but they don't do good on my patio.

Have a great week end!

I came home and fell asleep in my chair:)
Fixed simple dinner and did kitchen clean up.

Time to read my book. "TEXAS COOKING" by Lisa Wingate.
One chapter and I hate to put it down:)

Already learned things about TEXAS I didn't know before.---
Like-maybe the reason one of our Meals on Wheels clients out in the country keeps guinea
Hens is that they kill snakes! :)

Pat I love roses. Enjoy them before you leave. My mother could grow them here in Florida but I have never had any luck. Hope you both are doing good. I am going to turn in shortly. Had a busy day.

Hey! I am one happy gal!
Exciting news !

ONE pink rose is blooming out on front lawn.

And our bushes that flank our front steps with yellow roses are budding all over.

Plus all the pink and red roses along the fence including the arch of potential white ones are covered with buds

I am so thankful that we get to enjoy them in all their glory before we leave TEXAS at end of month!

And the bluebonnets are still blooming in our front yard.

I will try to share pictures . When the roses all open up!

Hugs, Pat

Lois, Ginger and I just came in, it is so nice out. Supposed to be like this the rest of the week and the weekend.

I wish I could walk, but with this ankle I just can't. I do the Leslie Sansone 1 mile walk sometimes.

Have a good evening.

Pat, so happy to read that you and your hubby are doing so much better.

Lois I have had to be independent most of my life and take care of myself. I have just so much patience.
I try to be kind.
This girl did get the check here in one day even though it is a neighboring town and usually takes even up to a week to get here. She couldn't write a check right though. Had to initial it twice. Young people don't learn like we did. We had to do the job right.

Irene, Glad you got the taxes done, and know you are also. Sometimes we have to get harsh to make people understand. I don't like to, but it is necessary as if we don't look out for ourselves, no one will.

Have a good day, 70 percent rain today. I get hair done this morning.

Finished taxes. Are in the envelopes with checks ready to go when I seal them.
Resolved the Medicare and AARP problem I hope as they said they were sending a check.
That is the PT which charged me the deductible and wouldn't do anything about it until I got a little harsh with them so they called Medicare and AARP themselves and said they were sending a check today (I hope they did).

Just dropping in to say Good Evening! Didn't do coffee today as many are on Spring break, but did run a couple of errands. Finding that I plan on doing only one major thing a day is probably the best plan for the time being. Not sleeping too well so have started taking a nap during the day which is something I never used to do.

Marsha, just reading you post made me hungry it looks so good.

Wishing all a blessed Sunday!

Lois, I use the directions on the pkg for the water amount, then I add bay leaves, salt, pepper, chopped onion, and a pkg of the cubed ham if I don't have a ham bone with some meat. I also cube potatoes real small and put in it. Add whatever seasonings you like. I use garlic powder also. My family loves it. I have to get some peas, I have a pkg of that cubed ham in the freezer as they had buy one, get one free.

Have a great day everyone, it is froggy here this morning.

Fay, you are doing good. I freeze individual containers for later. Sure is nice to go and choose what I want to eat. I like beans anyway. Sometimes they do cause gas. :( I have heard to ut baking soda in them when you cook. I always forget.

Keep up the good work. Yes, it is a different life without our loved ones. Takes a lot of adjusting. Hugs

I started my day with a mixed fruit smoothie. Since ice cream has probably been my strongest nemesis I was again reminded to try frozen banana in a blender. I now wonder if that is what helps me to like smoothies so much!

To make beans easily available ( and I liked them a lot) I cooked up a bag of dried kidney beans and added some of the usuals such as peppers, onions, celery and canned tomatoes. Instead of meat I added portabella mushrooms. Sometimes I'll eat it as such, other times season as with chili seasonings. I am now only cooking for one so can do as I enjoy.

Lunch then is whatever I have to make a salad and a few almonds I still miss carbs at times and some dairy. But at 90% I guess I can allow once every 10 days?!?

How easy can it get??

What a relief for me Lois that by the time that "S" stuff gets to PA it is only April showers. Our soils is very muddy but I am not planting anything (live in a condo) except to replace one small shrub and a few annuals. They can wait.

Yes, it is here!!! Started with rain and then it came SNOW, SNOW, AND MORE SNOW! According to the weather forecasters it will continue into tomorrow. This is the very last time I am going to type the word SNOW until next winter.

Because of the forecast, I went into church today to do my little volunteer job, as the walker doesn't do well in you know what!

Goodness! (Or maybe Badness!) I lived through the dustbowl days of Oklahoma. During one Sunday drive with another family, we were overcome by a dust storm rolling in that turned day into night. We could not see our hand in front of our face. I have seen a documentary of "Black Sunday."

I hope you take precautions--protect yourself if you must go outside on errands. No telling what kind of bugs are coming in with that sand. Hugs, Roberta

Weather report . It's weird as a lot of UK is affected by a sand storm in the Sahara, it blow clouds of fine sand which I'd still whirling around in the sky , then falling as a fine yellow dust, it's murky with the sun hidden. Big warnings to elderly and vulnerable not to go out unless you have to, it's affecting breathing and hay fever sufferers , not good emoticon

Lois, just do what you can do, don't over do. Sounds like you had a full day. Here it was 80 today. Had to have the AC on this afternoon. Have a good night's rest, and hope you didn't overdo.

Pat, I have a one bedroom condo and there isn't any place to put a stack unit. Actually I really do need to try to keep moving and try to do just one major things a day.

Did a Target and grocery store trip. Worked pretty well, but was really tired by the time I got home. Between the carts and my cane we got it done.

Would you believe we are looking at another major snow storm starting tomorrow evening and into Friday. emoticon emoticon

Sorry you had such a hard time getting to the laundry room. Maybe when the lady comes she could do it while she is cleaning.

I want to get someone to come in and do some cleaning for me also. I can't get down on the knees like I used to. Guess that comes with age. :)

Hi Lois ! So happy to hear that you now have the appointment for non-invasive surgery that you had hoped for.
Sorry to hear you had to do your own laundry without outside help. Is there anyway you could get a stacked washer and dryer installed in your apartment?
This would be so much easier for you.
Just a thought.
Hugs Pat

I couldn't believe it when I opened the drapes this morning - MORE SNOW!!! Fortunately it has melted now except for all the old dirty snow that is still hanging around.

Did laundry this today. Which is a feat in itself. Have a laundry room half ways down the hall from my unit. Pushing a laundry cart plus the walker didn't go so well so I switched to the cane. Got it all done, but now I need a nap. Do have someone set up to come in every other week to do my kitchen and bathroom. My DIL has been doing it, but I told her she was fired (not really, but she is having some health issues of her own and I want her to take care of herself.) We will just have lunch.

Have a good rest of the week!

Just checking in to give an update. Saw the neurosurgeon today and I am scheduled for a non-invasive surgery in May. It probably will not be a cure all, but hopefully should certainly give me a better quality of life. Was so glad that my daughter was with me to help me make the decision to go ahead with the surgery. I was so impressed by the doctor and the amount of time he took with us.

By the border of northern PA they had 8 or more inches of snow. My roof was covered with snow but no sleet. It's been cold with strong winds for 4 or 5 days. Hope it is blowing away Winter.

It's been a ho-hum day for me. I usually expect more of myself on a Monday. Still have lots of paperwork to sort, mostly because I let almost everything go last year. I'm sure Irene in Texas is much more organized with her papers for her mission tax work even though she had a lot of down time too.

My next 2 days require me to use my car to do assorted errands so may not do much Sparking. I'm getting to be a great procrastinator! Is there a team for that?

Pat, I slept pretty good, I always have to make 2 potty trips during the night..I was tired this morning and wondering if it was from the tea. Not going to drink any tonight. I get hair done in the morning, and then to Publix to pickup a few things, and then PU a prescription at Walgreens on my way home. I will be ready for a nap in the afternoon. :)

Have a great night's rest. I still don't feel like my old self. Sure I kick whatever it is that I have soon.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Did your SleepyTime tea work, Marsha?

Hope you are getting your rest too, Irene!

Hey, Ree, I got to see my first Mr Selfridge
Last evening on PBS . Never did see the first season but guess not a problem.
Looks a little like a soap opera but enjoyable anyway:)
Still like Downton Abbey better
