I watched PBS tonight. They had a wonderful memorial day honoring first those who didn't return then honoring all of those who did.
I read on the computer about memorial day and it was quite interesting.

I didn't do anything today except clean up my dishes and fix my meals such as they were. I did have a telephone call and made one myself.
Memorial day will probably be the same. Not much activity on Spark either.

Pat, I do believe you got enough exercise for several of us. I love pansies, but too hot here to have them. My Mother always had them when I was growing up in Ohio.

Yes, I am sure that DH will like the celebration. A big congratulations on his 91st.

Have a good night's rest.

Irene, your breakfast sounds good to me. I love oatmeal, and I always put some cinnamon on it also.

Hope you had a good afternoon. I kinda was lazy this afternoon, once I got home from church and shopping. I did put one blind up, it is a low one and I can reach, the others are high. Geo. will do this week whenever he comes over.

Have a good night's rest.

Watching Hockey right now, will watch the news when it comes on.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Today is rest day for me. Had oatmeal with peanut butter, 3 prunes that plumped up nicely and 1/2 of a banana for breakfast. Had mixed veggies for lunch.
Did order a couple of prescriptions and watched TV preachers and now I am back on Spark as you can see.

Been a busy couple of days here as well!
Yesterday after shopping at 2 different nurseries, i planted all the deck planters pots with blue pansies. I got in lots of walking just doing that. Also made up a new batch of Spark Oat meal mix with flaxseed, walnuts and dried cranberries.
Today i made breakfast with it for the three of us. Then thawed my asparagus soup and we had that for lunch. I also do all the dishes and keep our wash caught up. It is so good to be useful around here again. Also keeps me busy putting little Brooklyn out on her leash to go potty when needed. We have a retractable line at the front door. She is still getting used to this after always being turned out in Texas to her fenced in area out the deck door.
Light rain here off and on but DH got the lawn mowed and one flat of flowers set out.
He will be 91 in a couple weeks and the DD's are scheming for his party again this year:).
He always says he doesn't need a thing but i am sure he loves the attention just the same:)
I know you are all busy as well.
Hugs, Pat

You are so right Ree. Someone said to me recently well today is bad but tomorrow is another day. I said "One day at a time dear Jesus is all I ask of you". A song. I said we don't know if we will have tomorrow.

Irene, sounds to me like you were a busy, busy lady today also. Get some rest tonight, I am signing off and heading to bed. Not sure what time Geo. will get here in the morning.

I know he wants to mow and edge before it gets too hot.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Today my friends came who come every Friday. She celebrates her 93rd birthday Saturday and their kids will be coming in over the week end to celebrate that and to celebrate mother's day also. They have good kids and are good people themselves.
My PT came also and the nurse wanted to come but I couldn't have both of them so it was a tiring day for me and my back is aching. I did more than the PT asked me to do. She has me do occupational therapy also as well as the lower body. She is the only therapist at home that has had me do OT. I really like her. She has me do some things that help my balance also.
Monday they come from the Therapists to do an evaluation and the therapist will come back Thursday.
Also the nurse I wanted is coming Monday.

Nighty night to all. I am tired tonight. Glad a lot accomplished here inside and outside. Geo. Jr. will be here tomorrow to mow, put up three venetian blinds on the Sun Room, etc. Always enjoy our visits, Karen works until 2:30, and then she will go down to her Mothers. Seems to be doing ok right now. Just praying she don't fall, or something.

It was hot here today, and sweated a lot. I want to mop floors after Geo. leaves. Want to make an peach cobbler to take for coffee hour after church Sunday also.

Hugs and prayers to all. Not much news down this way.

Sweet dreams.

Pat glad your check up went well. Soon you will see your primary care physician who will explain more to you.
Yes, I think you do super, my friend.
Glad you could speak with long time friends also and I know you will enjoy the hanging basket. We had thunderstorms around noon here.

Hi Ree, Irene and Marsha, TUTANAN and Mani!
Just a note before a quick goodnight to you all.

Had a busy day- DD took me to my health check up with Dr. Assistant. Went over all my
Health issues and will share with my primary care physician whom i will see on June 4th.
I think I am doing pretty well for an 89 year old in spite of my problems:)

Also talked to old friends this evening who we hope to see in June when we travel back to old home place. For camper club get together and DH 's class reunion.

DH and DD purchased a beautiful hanging basket for front of our house. Had to bring it in for the night as it is really windy and chilly.

Good night and plan to check in tomorrow.
Hugs, Pat

Ree, so glad to hear from you, and always enjoy when you pop in. That is great that you have some help from your Son. It was the hardest job I ever did when I was caring for DH with dementia, but would do it all over again. So sad. Hang in there, and get out, if just for a little walk by yourself, or a friend. Take care of yourself. You all are in my prayers.

Hugs

Hello happy Friends. I do like this group. In everyday life I am always the oldest one. I don't know why I should care about that but I do.. Here I feel I fit in with other wise women .
It's still not very summery weather in England,
One of our sons is living with us part time. He is such a help and company for me too,

Hello Marsha. Got a good nights sleep. If you read my blog you saw about my day yesterday.
Some praise reports then I got home and went to the bathroom 9 times before I could go to bed. I am going to blog again today as this has been a most awful day.

Thank you sweet Irene, I am feeling better this morning after a good night's rest, and God has given me another beautiful day. Hope you are doing good, and less complications. Hugs

Good morning to all the rest, I have to get dressed and have something for breakfast. Have a great day, and let's make the best of it. Smile at some one, and hopefully get a smile back. It brightens your days.

Hi TUTANAN, , Marsha, Ree, Irene, Mani, ( who am I forgetting?)
How is it going in your world? Busy for sure.

Hope all celebrating BD's are having a wonderful time.
Maybe you remember I celebrated my 89th back in Texas 9th of May. I think I told ya'll that the family took us out to dinner at
Buzzard Billy's:) on the Brazos river in Waco. Right in same area where the Bikers are making bad national news right now! Wild wild west all over again!

I am happy to report that I started back doing my walking program in house today. Got in 18 minutes,total- 2 minutes at a time. Just set my timer to walk 2 minutes every 30! minutes.
Then sat in my chair and fell sound asleep!:)

We are having a severe cold front coming through tonite so DH and DD covered our strawberry plants with straw. It may frost!
Crazy weather for the middle of May!

Take good care of yourselves and keep me posted.
Pat

Thanks Irene, I did read your blog. Have a good day, I have always been a busy person, guess it is because I worked so many years on a tight schedule at work, and had to keep going to get it all done.

Have a blessed Day dear one.

Ree, I soon will be 84. Where does time go? Happy belated BD. emoticon

Just checking in before I go and get into something comfy. Didn't sleep too good last night, got up and came out on the couch, still couldn't go to sleep, so went back to bed.

I went to church this morning, and the lady that is in charge of counting the offering was back from their cruise, and we counted 3 weeks of offerings. Didn't get home until after 2:00. I was so tired from the weekend that I didn't go and get anything I needed at the store. If I feel like it I will go tomorrow. I have to get some house cleaning done tomorrow, and also laundry.

Hope everyone had a good day, and a good night's rest.
Hugs and prayers to all.

Hello in the early hours of Sunday. My usual insimnia struck ,I feel I may as well use the time wisely as lie in bed bored !
I had birthday celebrations over two days this week, to gut in with family commitments, they spoiled me with cards, gifts ,and love. I am now 83 . I was pleased to have a message of good wishes from our friend Mani. I appreciated all my greetings of course,
Now trying to settle back to routine and my own eating plan, I wish you all a blessed day. Ree

Just checking in for a moment. Had a weekend with the church garage sale. We had a lot of laughs, and chats. Always fun to do things with people you love. Geo. Jr. came and mowed and trimmed the sea grape bushes down below the vinyl fence tops. Looks much better. He had come over to the yard sale and told me that he was going over and mow and do some trimming, he didn't come back, and I finally texted him and ask if he was still here, and he texted back and said yes, but just about done. He came over and bought a hot dog, chips and a drink, and a few items of the yard sale. He carried a couple folding lawn chairs that I had bought from a lady from the church had brought in. Can't have enough of them when you have a pool. :)

He was leaving there and going to meet Karen at her Moms, Karen had to work today at the bank. He texted me and said they were taking her Mother to a walkin clinic as her one feet was read and swollen, Karen sent me a picture and asked me about it, and I told her it looked like edema,and she should go and have it checked, that is one reason she shouldn't live by herself. She should have known it needed attention. They took her to a walkin clinic, they did and EKG and sent her to the hospital. Haven't heard if they admitted her or not. They will call me when they get a chance. She is not an easy person to tell what to do. So if you would keep Sylvia in prayer. She is 87. Had Dementia also. I know it is a worry for Karen.

Judy got home from work, had to go to the church to meet some friends of a church member that is going to take a lot of our left overs.

Being Treasurer I had to count the money from yesterday and today, and another lady will count it tomorrow at church to verify that I counted it right. We did pretty good for the two days and will be able to put it to good use.

I am tired, and have clothes laid out for church in the morning. Hope we don't count the money afterwards as it will be 3 weeks of offerings as the lady in charge and her husband have been on a 14 day cruise. Don't know if they are back yet or not. We may count one morning during the week. Always something. My house has been neglected this week and I have to catch up on some cleaning, and laundry Monday.

Hugs and prayers to all, sorry I can't answer everyone personally, but just too tired.

Hi Pat. I wrote a blog saying I am back. Marcy had posted a blog telling my woes. Still having some problems but not like before.
Know you had a good time with your DD's. That is more important than hair.

Want to wish everyone a good night's rest. I am too tired to post individually. Worked sitting up for the garage sale at church tomorrow and Sat. Then took a lady home, went to get hair cut and set, then to Publix, and home. I am so tired I don't know if I am coming or going.:) Have a busy day tomorrow and Saturday. I will be back, but probably Sunday after church. I told them this is my last garage sale, too much bending, lifting, etc, and this old body isn't what it used to be.

Hugs and prayers to all. Have you all in my daily prayers.

Sorry I haven't been posting. We have been traveling since Tues. Arrived home safely last evening. Had to make an emergency trip north from Texas as a dear relative passed away suddenly.
Got half way here and had to stay over at our second hotel for 2 nights to wait out the bad storm system that hit central states this week.
DH and DD just left to travel across state to attend both. Sadly I could not accompany them.
A friend is staying with me and little dog Brooklyn .
Now let me go back and read your posts whileI have been gone.
Hugs, Pat

Hello on Saturday , we are all trying to unwind now after our general election in UK this week,
I love the Hawaian name for grandma, it varies here . Grandma . Granny . Nana and variations on that , I am generally Nan, it's not my name but my status, I am a great gran too but the children all call me nan as their parents do.
My husband is grandad to them all , but one little great calls him Magic. She has her own name for most relatives, her real grandad is Pap pap . Magic came about as my dh used to draw her pictures and show her home films on a screen, she thought that was magic. Which is lovely considering all the technology they see daily , Magic doesn't do much now but she still loves him and runs to greet him. He can't remember her name but knows they love each other . Sad
Have a good weekend Ree

Sorry, just can't read all the messages as I am having computer problems. I am online now, but don't know for how long. Don't know if it is the wireless, or my computer. Hope everyone is having a great Friday.

Got the dryer fixed and running, Geo. Jr. was here this morning, mowed and edged, and brought me a beautiful tiny rose bush, beautiful red for Mother's Day, and a nice card. Also Spade is here until Tues.

Hugs and prayers to all, and I will be on while it cooperates with me

Good evening to all. Been a busy day, and I am tired. Geo. Jr. comes in the morning to mow and edge, and bring Spade for me to watch while they are out of town for a couple days. He isn't any problem, and a great entertainer. :) Ginger is excited when I told her that Spade and Brother were coming tomorrow. ;)

Had a Women's Circle meeting at 10:30 this morning, then went to get hair done, then to Publix and home. Got all unloaded and put away.

Ginger is feed, and I will take her out around 7:30/8:00 for awhile. We like to sit on the front porch and watch nature.

Hope everyone has a good night's rest. I will be watching the Rehab Addict, I really enjoy watching her show.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Marsha

Yes, I would say you got in your exercise.

I sure did today. I mopped the bathroom, hall, living room, dining room and kitchen. Then I went up to the Library Store and got a couple books, then to family dollar and got 2 new blinds for the sunroom. Put the door one up, washed the glass on the door, took about 5 minute nap. Now have to figure what I am going to eat for supper, and feed Ginger.

Hope everyone had a good day, Beautiful day here, no rain though.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Mid week check in ! our son is staying here again this week so I took the opportunity to leave him with his dad while I went to a fellowship meeting at church, such an interesting speaker there. He is Nigerian living in UK. He was decended from a slave, he had traced his family background and recently visited his relatives in Nigeria, he had a film of it,
It was like the film Roots years ago. Have q good day Ree

Lois, so sorry the surgery had to be postponed. And nothing worse than a water leak. I had one about a month ago, and what a mess.

Enjoy your stay at the hotel, and sorry it had to be under this circumstances.

Good evening to all, on the computer for a few minutes. Been a busy day, and going to get into something comfy and relax. Hope everyone had a great day today, and have a good night's rest. No rain down this way, really breezy though. I went to Deals and got some items that I needed, wanted to go to the library but ran out of time, maybe tomorrow. Had to put gas in the car, and go to the bank also.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Oh my goodness, Lois! What a time you are having!!
"When it rains it pours" -guess thats not quite an analogy for your pipes bursting but it kinda covers the situation though! Sorry your surgery was postponed but glad you have a nice place to stay in the meantime!
Please keep us posted for better news soon! Like daughter says-Enjoy your mini vacation!:)
Hugs, Pat

Hey Tutunan- ( your name makes me think of Tutankhamen ( -the boy Egyptian Pharaoh:)

Sounds like you are in for a fun summer-great place to walk and garden. We too will have a garden when we get back home next week!! We have a large strawberry patch, and lots of producing raspberry bushes and DH plants a long garden strip in back of those beds. We also live very near Blueberry farms that we buy by the 5 pound bags and enjoy year round
We are so glad you joined our team!

TUTUNAN, sorry I don't know your first name, but welcome to the group. This is a great group, and am sure you will like it.

Hope everyone has a great evening, and a good night's rest. I will be watching Dancing With the Stars. I have worked all day around the house, was going to go out to Deals, but never got around to it. I paid my bills online, then had to call the Home Maintenance Agreement Company as my dryer isn't heating up. They can't come till Fri. Will just wash what I really need, and see if it can be fixed, if not, they buy a new one of equal value.

It is windy, but beautiful out, I keep going in and out. Worked around some flowers, and bought some herbs to plant and got them in a big pot.

Thanks, Irene, for the invite to join this team. My mantra is "move it or lose it", so I should be a fit with this team. I find I have to keep moving or the arthritis takes over. Most of the year I play golf 3 times a week.....this moves every spot in your body! Otherwise I walk. Next week we leave for Idaho where we spend the summer on our boys' ranch. There I get my exercise by gardening or walking. I loathe calisthenics!

Will give you heads up on what has been going on in my life lately. Right I I am living in a local hotel (2 weeks and one day as of today) as I have had extensive water damage in my condo. Hoping the insurance company will soon okay the claim so the restoration can get started. Was scheduled for total right hip surgery this coming Monday, but that has been cancelled for the time being. Just had a lot on my plate for some time, but this too will pass. My daughter keeps telling me to just think of it as a mini vacation. Am using a computer at the library so will try to check in. Greetings to all.

Irene, that is ok. Now you know who Judy is. :) We had a young family that lived across the street that went to our church, they were moving out of State, and we gave them a going away luncheon after church one Sunday. Judy had ask the Man if there was anything that she could do for the, he replied, :Just look after her (pointing at me), he said since her husband passed on I have been keep an eye on her. :) Well, she did exactly what he wanted, she would call me, check on me, etc. We just hit it off, and she told me one time that it didn't matter the age of a person if both enjoy each other's company. She won't tell her age, but I think probably in her early 60's. She said she had a bad experience on her BD when she was very young, and she never celebrated her BD since. I know the Month and day, but not the year. So I always take her to eat, or something simple.

Good morning to all. Welcome to a new member. Join right in. I was gone almost all day yesterday, and then busy last night. Today is going to be another busy day. Got soup on to take to church for fellowship afterwards. Judy is taking my Flowers for the Alter in memory of DH which passed May 1 three years ago. Geo. and Jenn took me up to the cemetery Fri. We all took something to place on his marker. It is a beautiful Veterans cemetery and where I will be with him some day.

Hope everyone has a great day. It is nice outside and a little breeze. Judy and I spent yesterday visiting friends in Assisted living homes, and then to see a friend of hers. We went to a flew market and had a great outing. Needed that at this time of the year.

I picked up a small TV for 20.00 for the sunroom. We were thrilled. Has a great picture on it. Got veggies, and bought some herb plants and a tomato plant, and hoping the bugs will leave them alone. LOL

Have to go and get dressed for church. Have a great day. TTYAL

We are happy for you, Roberta,
And glad Ree and DH have the company of your DS for a while.
Good luck with your yard work , Marsha!
Thank you Irene, for recommending our team to your friend. I hope we can live up to your
Recommendations!
We took our little Brooklyn to be groomed today-actually back to where she was born. She obviously remembered her first human mommy because when Karen picked her up, Brooklyn
Wagged her tail and kissed her cheek. :) so sweet.
DH and I have been watching another Netflix movie. But now time to turn in.
Good night all!
Pat

Hello on Thursday
Roberta , it's a new start for you. I do wish you well and happiness in your apartment,,
Our son would like to move to where we live and perhaps share a home , but his priority now is finding employment. He's on an interview today, unfortunately no where near us. He is spending as much time as he can with us now.
Keep well. Ree

We arrived here a day sooner than expected. The trip went well and, with DD driving, we made it in 9 hours, including time out for lunch for us and gas for the car. We arrived at 7:45 MT--early enough for her to retrieve her beloved dog. He was SO HAPPY and EXCITED to be home with her, and gave a warm welcome to me, too. He hasnít let her out of his sight all day today.

Tomorrow we have an appointment with the apartment Manager to sign the lease (takes about 45 minutes), then we go shopping for supplies. On Friday morning, we meet her again at 9:00 to leave a check and exchange keys. After that DD and I will go to the apartment to put down shelf paper. The van will arrive about 9:30. The cable guy will be there between 1:00 and 3:00. I expect to have internet service by that time. Iím using DDís right now.

Today is comfortably cool and Sunny. Somehow there was a mix-up on my clothes and I have only one blouse and one pair of slacks to last until Friday. Thatís OK, as DD has a washer and dryer I can use.

Thatís all for now.

Good afternoon, almost evening. Where do the days go? Since it is nice out I am out more than in. I worked around the pool this afternoon. Been busy all day. Got some cleaning done on the inside. Went to Family Dollar to get a few things, so tomorrow I won't have as much to carry in when I go to Dollar Tree.

Get hair done in the morning. No rain through the weekend they are saying. Will have to water some plants.

Have to go and fix Ginger some supper. She starts looking at me at 5:00, I do believe she can tell time. :)

Hope everyone has a great evening. I had a good night's rest. Hugs and prayers to all

Up at 5:00 - discovered my glasses were missing from usual spot next to bed.
Spent the next couple of hours searching high and low.:)
under bed, under sheets, bathroom, kitchen, next to easy chair, under easy chair,- etc!!!!!No luck!! gave up search ,!.

Then DH got up and took Brooklyn out to go potty-
so i went to straighten her doggie blanket-
WOO HOO! There they were on top of Doggie cage!!
Must have left them there when i tucked her in last night

I should have remembered what i have learned in past
-nothing is ever lost-just misplaced-
And will surface eventually:)!!

Pat, glad you made your hair appt. Sorry the food choice wasn't too good for you, but I think you made wise choices.

Yes, just feel teerrible Mani when I heard the news of the lose in Napel. Thought of you right away. What a wonderful celebration you all had.

I am tired tonight, had my handman and his son here all day doing work that I needed out by the pool, and between making 2 doz deviled eggs to take tomorrow for our after church luncheon, and making a doz. Pumpkin Spice cupcakes, and the men asking me where this was, and that was, I am beat. Ginger is worn out also. She is sound asleep. :)

Hope everyone has a great night's rest. A wonderful Sunday. I have the AC going.

Until tomorrow sometime.

I did make my hair appointment, Marsha. Look pretty good for a bit now!

Then last evening DD and hubby took us out to try new restaurant in town.
Unfortunately it turned out to be fried foods . We ended up ordering a salad and grilled cheese sandwich, which sounded the healthiest the menu. Still too fat for us!!!

Weight up this morning-no surprise there- back to the drawing board!

Dear Mani-our hearts go out to the families in Nepal who have lost loved ones!
Our prayers for the survivors continue.

Hugs, Pat

Pat, I hope you could make your hair appointment weather permitting. Always make you feel better.

Geo. Jr. just left, mowed, edged, weeded and planted some Ornamental Garlic Plants I had bought for Brooksí memory garden. We had a great time chatting, and he always drinks his iced tea. Being in business for himself he gets a lot of phone calls, but business is good and that is what is important now-a-days.

Roberta, we will be here when you can post, and just take it like it comes. Praying everything works out well. Nice of her bringing you dessert back.

Hope everyone has a good afternoon. Didnít sleep too good last night so I am in for an afternoon nap I am sure.

Pat, I did find two pairs of sandals (NAOT) from a local store. I hope to find more in Boise are there are several stores selling these shoes.

My DD arrived this afternoon and went went out to dinner, brought back dessert to enjoy at home. Things are winding down to Monday when the movers arrive. I don't know how much I will be online for about a week.

Yes, I am glad that you have help from your son, Ree! And I am sure you enjoy his company as well.
Our DD picked up my whole grocery list again today and all I had to do was put the groceries away. You are right. It is a blessing to have help even with grocery shopping as we get older.
My groceries consist mostly of fresh produce , bags of salad greens, kale, oranges, lemons, etc. And several bags of different variety of nuts. Walnuts, almonds, cashews, and sunflower seeds. I mixed them all together and stored in refrigerator. These days nuts replace meat for protein. ( as well as roasted tofu slices and beans of course)i know . Nuts are expensive but meat is more so!!
Just watched a nature film called "River of No Return" great!
Now we are off to bed.
Ps, Marsha --, i have hair appointment scheduled for tomorrow too but if it is as stormy as predicted I will cancel. !
Irene, I hope you have found what you were looking for in a Smoothie maker. !
Roberta, i ordered some new comfortable sounding shoes from Talbot for our trip north in a couple weeks.blue Liv Chambray, Sneakers. Plus a blue tote bag to match. I will send back if they are not comfortable. :). Hope you found yours!
Thinking of Mani- hope all is well!

Good morning to all. Had a good nightís rest. Hope that you all did also. My sciatica feels better this morning, so just going give it time today and not do much. I get hair done this morning, and then to Dollar Tree for some things I need to clean, wash clothes, etc.

Irene, sorry that that doesnít work for you. Maybe your doctorís office could call them and make arrangements, just a thought.

Ree, so nice that you and DH and Son could get out and do some things that needed to be done. I hate carrying in grocery bags. I bought a wire carrier on wheels, put in garage and thought I would come through the house and get it, open up the garage door and put my bags in that. Have I used it? Not. The doctor told me yesterday that she didnít want me lifting or carrying anything heavy. When you have jars of juice, water, canned goods, it is hard. Oh well, the price we pay to grow older. J Notice I didnít say OLD.

Pat I hope you had a good rest last night, I better go and get ready for my hair appt. Heaven forbid if I didnít get there on time. LOL

Irene, I don't have any problems with it leaking at all. Never have. You have to make sure the round gasket is smooth and in place. I don't know what you mean by lining it up. It just screws on, and sets in the base. There are directions with it. Maybe check online for more details.

Hope you are having a good day. Off to eat some chili, I made a big pot today.

Good morning to all. Pat, I guess we can adjust to any lifestyle at our age, I know that must have been hard to do. Glad you got it worked out.

I have been doing a little of everything this morning. Judy just went upstairs. She worked picking up food for our church food pantry this morning, I had fixed her a breakfast sandwich and put in the oven to keep warm until she got home. She does so much for our little church, I can't do any lifting, but I told her I could feed her breakfast when she gets home. She leaves early and don't eat breakfast.

Hope everyone has a great day, it is supposed to rain I think, getting a little cloudy out. We can use it, but the grass really grows when it gets God's watering.

TTYAL

Regarding shoes-I start the day in my pull on "hospital" socks as I can be in and out of shower
first couple of hours. ( result of my colon surgery) Then at about 11:00! I get dressed for the day- shoes and all! . :) I have adjusted to my new way of life and thankful for my progress!

Marsha you don't have to line it up? Yours never leaks? I can't have too much protein but can use fruit and veggies. Probably will use Greek yogurt. Think I'll look into it more.
I understand you are no longer on the 70's team. They are so unhappy but I know with arthritis in your hands you just can't do too much.

Irene, I don't have any problem, I have aritiritis in my hands and especially my right one. You just screw the lid on and turn upside down and put on the magic bullet. I love mine. I use almond milk, frozen fruit, and a protein powder, or slim fast in mine. Makes a nice size smoothie.

Have a blessed day.

Ree how nice you start your day with the devotions.
As I said it made me cry as it came after my stressful night of no sleep.
My feet have been hard to fit girls since I was young. I would bawl when I had to buy new shoes and happy when summer came and I could go bare foot. Now with swollen feet it is even more difficult.

I have the Magic Bullet and love it. Have had it several years. Makes a good Protein shake, or smoothie for one person. My regular blender give out, and I haven't bought a new one. I like to make my cole slaw in one.

I am heading to bed, been a busy day, and I am tired tonight. Hope I sleep better than I did last night. I think I was a wake every hour on the hour.

Hope everyone has a good night's rest. BBT
