Awww good luck with your mom. I am a care giver. I hope she doesn't have to much trouble with the change .It can be hard on them to be out of their space.
I have been getting in some extra walk time in the morning when I get home from work.It has been much cooler in the mornings making it possible. I have also noticed it is getting dark earlier...Winter is coming :(

I didn't make it on yesterday, one all day meeting, wore me out and I am lucky I made it on now, work sending out of town in an hour for the day.

I did walk with my friend yesterday, no walking today though, getting my mothers house floor replace in kitchen, termites and she staying with us till end of week, taking my early morning time getting her ready, she has some dementia and sun-downers,

It would have been a beautiful day to walk though so nice outside, great breeze blowing.

Have a blessed day

My friends brother asked us if we wanted to get out of school for a few days when we were really little. Of course we were yes!!! yes!! He told us to rub those shiny leaves all over each other.You never saw two sorry looking little girls in the world.They also used to burn it and I would catch it from the soot .Or the cat had he gone through it. BLAH Epic nightmare. emoticon
I am slow moving today, Had the dental work started yesterday. I was pretty sore last night .Today not so bad. Hubby had to work so I am just going to do a few easy things around here and hit the feed store so the chickens can eat .
Have a fun date night emoticon

When I was young I could touch poison ivy or poison oak or sumac and it would not bother me at all, I remember setting in a patch of poison ivy while fishing with some buddies, it was a good fishing spot and they were so jealous, now it is not like that, I will definitely break out, not sure why the change.

Had another great walk with my friend this morning, not as humid right now. Hope to head out to the lake tonight for date night picnic.

Have a blessed day

I got my sweet blood from my dad. My mom doesn't get bit and she doesn't catch poison ivy.It's just wrong. I look at poison ivy I need a dr. LOL

Usually there aren't biting bugs here/ We have a new lady with horses I would guess they are coming form her water troth's. Also lady next door catch water all over the place in little buckets.Its making for a bad year for me. I look like a 6 year old swamp dwelling kid with all the bites. I get a bad reaction to them too :/
Any way have a great day off to make a big breakfast might not be able to eat later LOL

I hear you about the teeth, wish they did, had problems myself.

Bug bites, they don't seem to bother me that bad, my wife gets eat up, guess women are sweeter than men...lol

Walked this morning again, I got in about 5 miles, 3 with my friend again this morning, it was so humid though. wishing for a cool breeze. Have chances of rain with storms coming up out of the gulf, when they come from the gulf, they are warm fronts, not cold, so heat still around for a while.

Have a blessed day

I love nature. It is my favorite place to be. LOL even if I am covered wit bug bites. The bugs have been terrible here this year which is a bit odd.
We had storms all day yesterday I did get a bit over my 5 mile in so that makes me happy.
Must have had a bad one last night the dog was trying to get under my pillow around 2A he is afraid of the storms .
Off to Mexico to start this bridge, It is a bummer our teeth do not last forever.
Have a great day:)

Neat idea about butterflies, never thought of them like that.
My friend told me this morning, he went canoeing and fishing, caught several small mouth bass, had a great time.

My butterflies, rocks and all that are just a way for me to get away, enjoy nature, Haven't seen my pet butterflies in 2 day s now, may be gone now.

We walked again this morning, beautiful sunrise, had a mean storm come through last night, not a lot of rain or wind but mean lightning, power went off for a minute, and then just seem like it was hitting everything outside. Lasted about 15 minutes then moved on.

Have a blessed day

I think butterflies are like feathers. They are angel messages from our departed loved ones. I like that thought better then sweat ;) Some one told me that when I was little. I always find heart shaped rocks . I think they are pretty special too .

Tonight I made ratatouille for diner. I just love this time of year when we get to eat fresh veggies .
I got my 5 miles in today walking. I shoot for that every day but have been falling short lately.
I haven't been fishing in years.Your friend is lucky.
Have a great day :)

I had to have a salad for lunch yesterday, not like the one you had though, will have to try your recipe.

Walked this morning with my friend, little more humid today, he's going fishing today, I have to work.

Watered my plants when I came in last evening, seen few butterflies but my two little buddies were not around, my walking friend told me they come to you because of the sodium in your sweat, but I like it better when I think they coming to me cause they like me for something other than sweat....:0)

The salad is called panzanella. My Italian mother in law used to make it to use up stale Italian bread and tomatoes.I make pesto for the dressing but you could use a vinaigrette.It is just tomatoes,black olives and mozzarella tossed in a blow with croutons or stale bread. The bread soaks up the tomato juice and is yummy.
Sounds like you had a great busy weekend. Your butterflies sound amazing. I have a few butterflies ,mostly moths that eat my cabbage LOL
I cooked up eggplant yesterday and baked some chocolate chocolate chip zucchini cookies. I gave some of both away this morning and the rest are in the freezer.
This morning I also cleaned the interiors of the jeeps and the PT Cruiser .The jeeps were covered in dog hair. Wonder how corgis look shaved HAHAHA
The farmers market went well We sold 6 dozen eggs.Probably could have sold more if I had them I had already sold 6 dozen earlier in the week. Will definitely take extras again this week if I have them.Have a great day.

That Italian tomato and basil salad sounds good. Had my blueberries this morning, birds were out of luck again.

A great walk this morning with my friend, 67 degree's partly cloudy, got in 5 miles. Mowed yard Saturday, then gardened, Did my butterfly counting again, count 33 Saturday and 114 Sunday. The two I call my pets came up to me as I was mowing this time, trying to land on me.

Washed the car afterwards then came the rain, oh well...

Have a blessed day

After work this morning we had breakfast in the garden. Only the dogs got lucky;)
Then we loaded up the dogs in the new jeep and headed to the mountains for a nice hike.It was sprinkling by the time we got there but hiked anyway. Sat to relax and read for a bit but the thunder started and I forgot the dogs meds. He has panic attacks. So we came back down the hill.It was so hot we watched a movie in between doing chores here and there. Had dinner from the garden an Italian tomato and basil pesto salad.It was delish .Tomorrow I am taking some eggs to the farmers market to sell. My little chicks are really starting to lay brought in 20 eggs today.
Have a great weekend

The big maple sounds wonderful. We had them in NJ where I grew up. I really loved the pretty leaves they had. Gorgeous in the fall. Here it is mostly pine.
I survived work this morning and errands. Tomorrow I have another 2 hours in the morning . Not so bad but it is really nice to just hang out and relax in the morning .
Going to Mexico next week for some dental work. It is so much cheaper there.
I bet the birds loved the blueberries :) I sure hope we get a cool down it is 97* out there the sun makes it feel 25*-30* hotter
Have a great day emoticon

They say we have a big cool down coming, just so humidity goes away. Had a great walk with my friend this morning. Beautiful sunrise. Went out to the big maple afterwards with coffee and frozen blueberries for breakfast. Blueberries were so good and then I drop the bowl on the ground with about a quarter of them left, hope my feathered friends enjoy them.

We all used to play in those little wading pool in our underwear with no shirts splashing around and having fun. Sometimes I think growing up is too hard.
I finally got in a nice walk yesterday. It was cool enough to breathe out there after work. It felt so good. They say we are on cooler weather trend :) YIPPIE it still got up into the 90's Several storms went around us but we only got a few sprinkles .
I am working today and tomorrow to cover for my clients other caregiver. He is out of town.
Have a great day :)

I remember when I worked farming and worked with a girl like that, she was all farmer girl, I used to pitch hay bales with her. She moved off to the big city and haven;t seen her or heard of her in 40 years. She was an out door person, then had a couple ladies like that in scouting too.

Also when I was 7 or 8, still a kid not knowing much about things, hanging out with a girl that run around with no shirt, I didn't wear a shirt either, and didn't realize anything, her mama started making her wear a shirt and neither one of us could figure out why.....lol. She was a tom boy. We rode bikes all the time.


Walked with my buddy this morning, not as humid, but still warm.

Have a blessed day

LOL I have always been the girl that wanted to be in the woods hiking ,camping ,hunting ,Fishing.My poor mom tried so hard to make me into a Barbie doll with gloves and little hats. HA I am a tomboy just like her?? I never understood all of her effort .

I work extra hours today and then got home and chatted with my son for a bit. He just got divorced is not completely okay with it. Although I think it was his idea??? Anyway he lives with us now. It is interesting having your 40 year old son live with you again.He is also going to nursing school and is really worried about an upcoming test. If things go well he will be an RN by Christmas .
Now I am using up some zucchini from the garden Turning it into chocolate cookies . I am not sure they are SP sanctioned. But they are Delicious and they freeze well so we have them over the winter
My pedometer tells me I am failing t steps today :/
Have a great day

That is rare, a woman that hates to shop, wow.....;0)

So humid this morning, storms come through about every 5 or 6 hours, drop heavy rain for about 5 minutes then move on and sun is back out, thundering now but radar shows nothing,

Heard thunder last night from a storm that was about 30 miles away, it dropped heavy rain in its path, flooding but none my way.

Birds were back out this morning as we walked but it so cloudy this morning.

Have a blessed day

I agree with the statement about birds. When I lived in Florida I had a big barred owl that would visit with me. When I first heard him after I bought the house I introduced myself to him. He would hang out all the time when I was in the yard.

The birds here will come to the feeders when I am in the garden alone but are more skittish when others are around .

Glad your new shoes are working out. I hate to get new shoes .I wear then until they are worn through. I maybe the only women in America that hated to shop LOL

I walked with my buddy this morning, bought some new shoes and wanted to break them in, my others were killing my ankles, no support, can sure tell the difference. It was a humid walk this morning however, my friend said "I think we slowed down on that last mile", humidity will do that to one.

Mowed Saturday then worked on flower beds. Seen the prettiest butterfly, a small butterfly that was olive green with wings outlined in purple and purple spots on the wings, had my two "pet" butterflies, look like small monarchs land on my shirt as I was gardening. They always visit me as I garden.

This morning as my friend and were walking the ravens were out telling us hello, my friend is a retired biologist and told me that birds do notice how people respond to them and can tell whether you are friendly or not, he told them hello, and I must admit I have told them hello before when walking by myself, I have noticed before the birds reactions to my presence. Being friendly does bring them around more.


Have a blessed day

Yesterday I worked in the garden .I think we have it all caught up and have our fingers crossed that it perks up. We pulled a ton of carrots out of there and another cabbage.
There are quite a few eggplants almost ready to pick.
I was out earlier and cleaned the hay barn. I have to get feed and hay today for the critters :)
I will also make our to go breakfasts and lunches .It really helps to have food ready.
LOL not sure what we will do after that we are off again today :)
Have a great weekend

Never heard how much rain we got yesterday, today though it is much better, got my bike ride in and on the last leg of my bike ride met up with my walking friend so I parked the bike and walked a mile with him, a really good morning, it did sprinkle a little on the last half mile but that's all. Could hear the thunder roar in the distance. Also heard a mocking bird and a cardinal really singing away. Seen a really pretty monarch butterfly yesterday after the rain finally stopped.

Have a blessed weekend

I love birds and nature too. Always loved the woods more then hanging out with the other girls at the mall. I took my kids fishing and on nature walks teaching the about plants ans animals too.I definitely have country in my soul. When I was little I used to say I was going to save all my money up and buy 100 acre in Montana and live on the middle of it so I would never have to see anyone but nature ..LOL no I realize 100 acres is not enough and that Montana is too cold for my old bone.
Off to the garden with me
Have a great day . stay safe in the rain. If we got 3" in that time frame there would be mass flooding every where :)

Hey I didn't think of that, my cherry slush fund, good idea...;0)
I had to walk inside at the Life Center this morning, flash flood warnings and it put it down this morning too. Temperatures are much better now, but we got 3 days of heavy rains or so they say, one weather channel said we got 3 inches of rain yesterday morning during a 30 minute storm, do not know where they got their info but not true, didn't take ground and plants long to look like needed water.

I am always checking out rocks and other things in nature anywhere I go anymore, have even got into the habit of counting butterflies that I see during the day, this ole boy needs some good outdoor time. If I had it to do over again, I would become a nature science teacher, just love that kind of stuff.

Have a blessed day

Sounds like a great day.
I also do not mind getting rained on. It feels good .I grew up in NJ we had a lot of moisture there. Here in NM not so much.
Finding $20. is very cool now you have a cherry slush fund LOL
I got all my errands done today after work. And discovered I have aphids on my squash plants that were doing good. That is what I get for no paying attention. It has been so hot I have sort of been ignoring the important stuff . I went out 3 different mornings after work instead of doing serious yard work.
My brother lives in Kentucky I have some beautiful agate from there. I have been all over to look for rocks .My friends and I used to go to Arkansas for their quartz festival in the fall .You could dig through the mine tailing.I found so much nice stuff.
NM is a geological wonderland and you can find all sorts of wonderful things here.I can't wait till the Fall when it cools down a bit and the snakes start thinking about going to ground .
Have a great day .

Mostly everything is sedimentary rock with a lot of fossils, there is limestone, fluorite crystals, and Kentucky Agate. I just love to get out and look for rocks, check out all the designs.

I had an awesome walk this morning, did 2 miles before my friend came and we did 2 more miles. There was such an awesome sunrise. On my first mile I find a 20.00 bill in the road, and then when my friend came along he told me about his fishing trip to Canada. Then as we were about half mile from being done, it starts thundering and when we get done, the rain starts so we got our walk in before the storm, it was a heavy rain. We are both old boys scouts so we decided that if it started to rain while we were walking, we would just finish in the rain, would not be the first time.

Oh I also found some neat rocks as I was walking this morning.

Have a blessed day.

I got to ride today, humidity much better today, was still foggy but that was in the county so I rode in town today. Yep did my cherry slush ride.

Forgot to water my tomatoes this morning, we got a trace of rain but not enough for my plants.
They should be ok till I get home this evening. Hope to head to the creek after that, want to do a little "rock hunting", another hobby of mine, or an excuse to be outside,

Have a blessed day

It is already hot here. It was over 100 again yesterday They never really give us a heat index thing but do add it feels 20-30 degrees hotter in the sun. I only work out there for a few hours in the early morning and then do inside things until it cools back off into the 90's later in the day
Today I am going to lunch with a friend and we are going to recon a stable. My grand daughter is interested in horses all of a sudden she is going to be 13. I thought I would maybe take her for a trail ride. She has expressed intesrt in lessons but has never been on a horse. I thought this might be a good idea. LOL Now I have not been on a horse in probably 10 years. I hope I survive . I am very sure my back is going to be angry with me.

It was hot and sticky this morning, I chose to walk, yesterday was the hottest day we have had in a while, 95 was high but with humidity it was well into the 100's. I almost went indoors to walk this morning. My computers acting so weird today, I getting a lot of walking indoors today as well.

Saturday I stayed outside all day, mowing, weeding, and it wasn't bad, it was hot but still there was a breeze.

Cool weather coming though, low 80's by Friday.

God Bless

. This afternoon I took Noni to the lake for swim.

it was too cold for me to make the plunge today. Yesterday was perfect - hit, calm, and sunny - not today. Today was windy, overcast and a chill in the air.

On a positive note I found my sunglasses laying in the muck where I put the kayak in yesterday.

The cool weather did feel good. It was crazy hot here again today.
WE ran into town and stopped at the tax assessor office and the county clerk. Then the title place that did our Title search for our closing when we bought our place.We are thinking about drilling another well and the state has no record of our well. So we need to see if we can prove how old it is . We may actually have water rights .In the desert that is a big deal. We are still at a dead end
After the serious stuff we hit a few thrift stores. Picked up a couple of really nice chaise lounge chairs with decent cushions for out in the yard. They will be real nice for laying out there at night looking at the stars.I prefer to be off the ground in case I fall asleep and a snake creeps by.
Then we had a green chili cheese burger at this place people rave about. It was way too hot and the chili over powered the entire burger. :(
Hope you have a great weekend with your family :)

I went on a short hike, to Alice Lake Provincial Park earlier this month, I left Noni in the kitchen to serve our guess after I had prepared the meal. This me time was so needed.
I brought our little MSR camp stove to make tea and heat up some chili down by the river.
All in all I spent three hours just relaxing soaking up some sun and unwinding mentally.







The baby was left home too

My camp going good so far, one more day, my nature class we had a bee keeper bring in his bees and we talked about bee keeping, like to do that myself one day, when I slow down.

Have a blessed day

The season keeps crawling forward.. I do have a good front of the house coordinator now but the dishwasher boys are driving us all crazy. There is hope of improvements- when is October?

I had two days off together with my wife and we left camp and went to our condo. Today is my mothers birthday so we celebrated it with her.
Yesterday we drove to Vancouver and watched Tarzan, I enjoyed it.
Here are a few pictures of our weekend..
mom is 80

family

Noni made this cake

BBQ











Well 165 hungry campers are arriving tomorrow for the next two weeks.. Back to the grind.

OH boo about the date night. The squirrels sound like fun though. I used to love their antics at my feeders in NJ and Fl. We only have ground squirrels here They are as destructive but not as much fun to watch.
The Blue grass festival was nice. I like that type of music . There was one group that totally rocked the house with their rendition of hot rod Lincoln...Not exactly Gospel but they did a wonderful job. They were more upbeat then the other groups .More Appalachian mountain.
Yesterday I baked with zuchinni I will be doing the same thing tomorrow. I only have like 4 good plants but they are doing great. I planted mortgage lifter tomatoes this year they are doing really good too. I am going to have to start giving them away :)
My little pullets are starting to lay too.
Probably not good to encourage the boys but I think the burp contest sounds funny.They grow up to fast .A burping contest sounds pretty mellow. How old are they?
Have a great day :)

Well my date night didn't go like I wanted, wife didn't want to go out in humidity at the lake and Saturday was so nice I thought we might slip out there then, nope ended up driving out of town to eat and shop, oh well.....
Did watch 2 squirrels chasing each other down a tree and both ran right off of the tree, one keep on going, the other had a stare down with a robin, so cute, the squirrel one as the robin flew off.

Schools starts here in 2 weeks, my camp went well today, 3 more days, wore out though. My second class is nothing but boys, and they were having a burping contest, guess it could have been worst.

No rain so far but humid, a chance of rain Tuesday hope it holds off till the afternoon.
Have a blessed day
