Yes, Lew I am serious about the bucket challenge from the team Sharing I belong to.
Today I turned over the papers about the other delicate issue to my friend and he is going to see that it is done right. He has a nice way of expressing himself both in words and on paper and I get overwhelmed LOL.
My shopping angels came tonight just to drop off something they couldn't find the other day so went to another store and found it.
Thank God for His angels who surround us daily.

Mel, they don't operate on cataracts until they see they are large enough to remove. I had them for years then one year he said I needed to have them removed. No big deal and I was so glad I did.
Thank you. A friend came today and he is going to help me with the big issue. I had all of the papers but he speaks so kindly and writes kindly and I get befuddled. LOL.


TO ALL: I am doing better today and walked down for my mail and drove about 2 miles to the bank to deposit some checks. Did some odds and ends around here.

The elders came and brought my fish for the week. I had oatmeal with peanut butter, some kind of ground seed and 1/2 of a banana for breakfast. Lunch was a fish sandwich and a baked sweet potato, and tonight a side salad (quite large)

Joyce, I am so sorry to hear about Kelie's blindness. That would be awfully hard to take. How old is she?

Lew, Happy Birthday to Sara. She is about one year behind me. I'm sure her party will be grand.

Irene, Sorry about those delicate issues and other problems. Hope you can keep yr spirits up!

Gloria, I always almost type "Glo" for your name for some reason. I think it's a cute name for you but you might not agree.

Dee, I have small cataracts too but the eye doc said I may never need to deal with them. That's fine by me.

See you all tomorrow,

Mel

Good afternoon, it is late in afternoon. Got some things done for church. Went to dr. this am, blood pressure is up but I think that is because I am upset about Kelie. She has SARD (sudden acquired retinal degeneration). They are going to run more tests to be sure there nothing else going on with her. We are going to continue to take care of her as long as we can. She see's nothing. Walks into walls, chairs. I am going to try different things, getting a book on how to deal with blind dogs. Going to try scents also but her smeller doesn't seem to be up to par, she is a beagle and should have good sense of smell but we have put her goodies down right in front of her and she can't seem to find them. But we are not giving up.

Blessings, Joyce

Good evening Ladies. I haven't been able to do much today but I did manage a few things and worked through a small strength workout. Heather brought Ethan out to spend the afternoon with us and it was good to spend time with him. Tomorrow I have to go shopping for Sunday dinner. The family is getting together to celebrate Sara's 74th birthday. I'll be making some things I haven't made before but she'll coach me through them.

Mel, I hope you had a good walk with Rokki.

Irene, I read your blog and you are serious about the challenge. Way to go.

Dee, My son and I have bad backs but we both injured them while in the military. He hurt his in a parachute jump. Congrats on the good report on your eyes.

Gloria, thanks for the info on your user name. It works. emoticon

Have a great day everyone.

Dee I was so glad I had cataract surgery. Frames are so expensive and these just pop back into place if they are bent so have kept them for years. They would cost a lot more now but were so expensive back then.
Thank you for your prayers.
I wrote another blog about the challenge HAWTGRANNY started on another team. And about my terrible day yesterday.
That is good your son and grandson are coming and helping you with a bunch of things you need done.

Praise the Lord, my eyes were clear this year. Small cataracts on each one, but that's minimal. Did need new prescription and going with larger lenses so needed new frames. The gal working in the frame department is a friend and I usually let her pick them out for me. She has good taste and I always get compliments on them.

Irene, you are on my prayer list for all your concerns. As are the rest of the SP friends.

Lew, my DH can sympathize with the back issues. He went in this morning for a treatment. His isn't the spine as much as the muscles around it. They say it is too many years of misuse with his job. I think some things are inherited. Our boys and their boys all have back issues. It's like an epidemic up here and it could be because this is a farming community but there is a lot of back misuse. And surgeries.

Tonight Michael, our third son, and his son are coming for the weekend. He called and said to make a list of things to be done and he would do them. Yipee!!!!!

Everyone have a good day and weekend.

Everyone I am sorry to not be online to chat today but I have had a rough day.
I did download the form I needed for one of my delicate issues and got that sent off today and in the mailbox I found the papers I needed for the big delicate issue. Hope to have it resolved tomorrow.
I have had bathroom troubles all day and am quite concerned. It might be the cherries I had. I don't know.
Lew I'm sorry about your back. I know it is not fun. I had them years ago where they were absolutely horrible and now that I broke a vertebrae I am having trouble again.
I believe God has something for Heather. One door closes another opens.

Good evening Ladies. I have had two busy days and they have me tired. I went to the Chiropractor and my back was messed up from top to bottom. Since then I've been using the ice pack between trying to get things done. I had another problem with my sprinkler system but this was in the timer that's in the sun room. I contacted the manufacturer's support folks and she told me that with all that I had troubleshot it had to be the fuse. She told me how to test it and that was the problem. It was a $1.50 fix. Heather and Ethan came out for a visit and stayed for dinner. She loves her Mom's Chili soup and that was what Sara was making when she called to let us know she was coming. She was down because she did not get the promotion. Management would not budge on the requirement to be in Colorado. She was very disappointed and we tried to settle her down. No fishing this week due to strong winds over on the coast

Marsha, the Chiropractor helped some but I have to keep using the ice. You asked about Sara and the heat. She has never been able to handle heat for very long.

Dee, we're lucky to have much of our family close but we traveled for our other two grandkids graduations. Family get togethers are work but always worth it.

Mel, you're doing great with your walking. Adding a little distance now and then keeps the progress going.

Have a great day everyone.

Jude, relax and have fun at the graduation. We will be here when you get back.

Gloria, Oh the brownies sound so yummie! I'll have one with you!

Dee, hope the eye check up went well. I find it difficult picking out the new frames. I just went through that recently.

Walked a mile and a half today. I just pushed myself a little harder. Hope to keep it going.

Lew, we are missing you and hope you are o.k.!

Good to have you back Gloria. Hope the trip to Toronto wasn't too strenuous. We don't have cities nearly that large around here. Minneapolis is the biggest and I can drive to our son's house but then forget it--he drives.
Our son Jeff and his family live in Tennessee so we usually get to see them once a year. We have been out there three times in the past four years for graduations and wedding. They usually come here during rodeo time and take that in. They stay a week and everyone gathers at our home. So it is one big meal a day cooking for 8-10 up to 14 people a day. They help but all the family wants to see them while they are here and we have a lot of family with aunts and uncles and cousins. It will be just three coming as the other two can't get off work at this time. Usually all five come.
It is fun and such a let down when they leave.
Have a good trip Jude. Graduations are fun. The kids are usually so happy.
Today I have an eye checkup. A year ago they found blood leaking in the eyeball and the Dr. was sure I had diabetes or was anemic. Went through all kinds of tests--but what they found was low sodium in the blood. That is all fixed, so hope he doesn't find anything this year. I know I need a change in prescription.

Jude, enjoy your GDs graduation and get your computer fixed, well miss you if you cant come in here! Do enjoy your family time though and see you later.

Mel, I think walking a mile daily is really good. Thats much more than some of us can do. You might be able to walk further if you just take it a bit longer each day. Did I ever answer your question about what is a streak? If not, it goes something like this: do some sort of activity every day (could be 5 min, could be longer) or choose something else that needs working on, do it for as many consecutive days as possible. If youre doing it with a group, as I am on another team, then go in daily to report and get either encouragement, kudos or at times . . . a boot in the backside to get you going, lol. We find it a lot of fun and it sure helps us.

Thank you Irene, the traffic was heavy both going and returning from Toronto yesterday but my driver was really good. My sons wife drove me there & back. And I had excellent results at the hospital. Im grateful and happy. Keep on keeping busy Irene, you do really well!

Sure sounds like nice days for you Joyce and nice weather!

Lew, I hope your chiropractor helped you yesterday and that your back is feeling good again. Does the heat bother Sara? I can understand how she feels if it does, it sure bothers me! We have nice temps right now and a lovely breeze/wind daily and I think that wind helps.

Dee, how nice that your son and family will be visiting with you in June. How long do they plan to stay? Do you get to see them often?

Hi to anyone I may have missed. Im having a nice rest day. I just took a pan of Brownies out of my oven and will frost them when they cool. These are to do in packets and give to family. Of course Im going to have to try one, just one!

Enjoy your day everyone. Come on in and share it with us!

I wanted to stop a minute and let you know that I will be off line a few days. We are going to Indiana for our GDs graduation.

Also I am on my husbands computer which is a big no no as he says I bring in too many viruses, My computer has chocked and died this morning. So sad. I have to drop it off at the repair shop to see if it can be brought back to life. Darn. So IF, I can figure out how to work my tablet well enough I will try to check in. Hate losing my streaks. Darn!!!

Each of you need to think of how important your goal is to you. Are you there yet or just thinking about how great it would be?

Take care and I will talk to you when I can. Jude/daisypetal

Gloria, I hope your trip was successful today and not too tiring. Hello to everyone else too.

It was another very gray day but I got out with Rokki and walked a new trail. We only walk about a mile at a time. I keep thinking I should make it longer but so far I just haven't been up to going longer. Hoping this will change.

Good night all,

Mel

Happy times with my sister get togethers and now I need to get on with my life. We cannot bring back the past. My sisters are all tucked safely in my heart, to stay there forever.

I have to go out of town this morning. My son's wife is driving me. Not a trip I enjoy, the traffic is horrific! We have to go to Toronto Ontario, our biggest Canadian city, so you can imagine the cars, trucks, such busy highways!!

I'll be back to post again today if I get the chance. See you then.

Thank you Lew. I already got my hair cut and made my eye appointment. Tomorrow I will make my dental appointment.
We have had in the 90's a lot here.
Houston has had a lot of flooding.
We just had thunderstorms and parts of the valley which we call this region flooded but it soon drains off. Some were w/o power for a few days though.

Good evening Ladies. Today was our hottest day this year. The temperature hit 90 at 11 AM. Sara and I went shopping and very quickly the going in and out of air conditioning had her feeling bad. We did get what we went for and spent the rest of the day indoors. I tried getting on the treadmill this afternoon but my back quickly told me that was a real bad idea. I'm going to try and see the Chiropractor tomorrow.

Jude, Mani was a wonderful person and I'm blessed to have known her. Truth is, I can say that about all of the Ladies on this team.

Marie, it takes a lot longer to recover from falls than it did in our younger days. Hope you neck starts feeling better.

Irene, I read your latest blog and I'm glad you committed to taking care of yourself. Keep it up.

Have a great day everyone.

Hi backyard neighbors, A bright and warm day in northern Michigan.I love the season when things are so fresh and flowers are everywhere. They keep me so busy and then when I stop and look around, I realize the beauty of nature and all the birds busy making their nests and singing their songs. I wonder if we lived like nature if we would all be as thin as they are. If we would only eat when we are hungry instead of eating for every reason in the dictionary we would find that we would be thin naturally. We use our moods to feed our stomachs instead of when we are hungry. No wonder they say "They eat like a bird" :)

I have to tell you something. Last week, there were condolences for the family of Mani and I had no idea who she was, except that she must have been a pretty great person. Last night on my late night posting, I was going to my blog to do a little note,(that I never got too) when I checked to see if I had to reply to anyone. My eyes about popped out of my head when I seen a post from "Mani" It was from a post I had did a few days ago and she was encouraging me in my loss of weight. It did not dawn on me at that moment who she was and went to her Spark Page and seen that her granddaughter had written to us about her passing.

I have to say, I was so impressed in reading her life story on SP. It made me stop and think how important those few words she spoke to me were. Some of her last thoughts were for me, someone that she did not even know. I was so happy to finally have met her and wished I could have answered her properly. I did send a prayer to her in thanks.

I guess the message to this is that there are people all over this site that are trying to help us and we are not really listening or we would be doing what we are suppose to be doing. There would be no excuses, there would be no thinking twice about really trying. WE WOULD BE DOING IT FOR US! Good Luck to us. Hugs, Jude

Yes Lew, thank you for serving our country and us. Three of my brothers were in three different branches of the military. The one in the Navy was close to a nuclear leak on a ship and got cancer and later passed away. One in the army is battling Agent Orange issues from Viet Nam and the one in the Air Force retired from the service but still has his same position on the base, but as a civilian. Proud of all three of them
We go out each year and decorate the graves of relatives . I always like to drive around in the cemetery and remember many of the relatives and friends. Of course being raised and living here all my life along with a majority of family since the 1800's, there are a lot of family and friends buried here.
It was a quiet day and I got more sorting done upstairs. Our son and family will be coming to visit from Tennessee in June so that gives me incentive to clean up there.

Dee--youthful 70s

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Lew, Thank you and I am so thankful that there are people like you that can take care of us that cannot help. How hard it must be. My grandson is a two time server from Iraq as a Marine and at times I know he thinks about how life used to be.

I hope the young people always remember what this weekend is for and not just for BBQs and parties. When going to the parade in our small town there are hardly any young people. In our family it is a tradition that they must attend with Grandma & Grandpa.

I hope you all had a great weekend as I did. I planted flowers and pulled weeds between rain showers today. I put on my Milorganite fertilizer and that really helps keep the rabbits and deer out of my veggie patch. The only thing I have left to fight with are the squirrels and the chipmunks from my birdfeeders. Oh they drive me insane but I am sure I use lots of calories jumping up and down to keep them out of my birdfeeders. :)

I see we have another new person so be sure to give her a big welcome. More input is always great. Have a beautiful day tomorrow, we are going to be in the 80s but more showers. I have lots of packing to still do inside so it will be okay for me either way.

I will be leaving on Friday A.M. for Indiana for my granddaughter's graduation and it is about a 9 hour drive so it will be a long day for me and DH. He is feeling better so hopefully all will be good. She does not know we are coming so it is going to be a fun surprise. But I will be back on Monday so will do my weigh in on that day instead of Sunday.

Good evening Ladies. On this day each year I spend time remembering the 55 Naval Academy classmates and friends on the USS America that were lost in Vietnam. My memory is of the young energetic men they were. And, I remember all of those, through the decades, who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Today there was no BBQ and no celebration. Years ago I tried to bury a couple of those memories because they hurt too much but I realized that remembering was the only way to move on.

Going to bed early tonight.

Hello all, hope everyone is doing good today or at least as good as possible at our age. I sympathize with all who are grieving over the lose of friends or loved ones I have been there and know that it is never easy. I also can feel the pain of those who are suffering through pain because I am right there with you,with the pain of arthritis and fybromyalgia. And I cannot get any relief from the pain in my neck and shoulders since my fall.

It seems as though everyone is doing good with the diets and that is something to be thankful for,each day without a fallback is a bonus.I did not lose last week but I didn't gain either.Well I will go now and login my food for today.

Have a good evening all and God Bless. emoticon

Sally, They found out I had a fatty liver and my ammonia levels were so high I went from rehab to the hospital. One night they thought I was dying and friends came in and prayed.
I went back to rehab. When I saw doctor's not affiliated with rehab they put me on a vegetarian diet. I lost my appetite and am sure I don't eat enough. The doctor was concerned because I was losing weight and he said it was not water weight as my feet and legs were still swollen.
I told him I had no appetite and was bored with my food so he said I could add some protein, fish or chicken. I chose fish and have it twice a week. I love avocado and have an avocado sandwich almost every day.

Last night I watched the most beautiful memorial day service, first for those who did not return then to all of those who did from all wars.
They even had two young people speak who lost their dad when they were just kids and their speaking was so wonderful.
My husband served in the marines and came back partially disable.
I had two brothers who served in the army and they both came back changed men. They did not want to talk about the war.

I am so sorry for the loss of our Spark friend, Mani. She must have been a wonderful Spark Friend. Gloria, my love to you for the loss of Dorothy.

This is a sad day for many of us but we are here when we can be and when we need to take a Spark break it is always understood.

Good Luck to each of you on this long weekend. Take care. Jude

Good evening Ladies. I picked up Josh this morning and he cut the grass, trimmed the hedge, and pulled some weed. I helped him with the weed pulling but ran out of gas after an hour. On our drives from and to his house we chat and today he told me about a friend that didn't think he wanted to go to college. . Josh said he didn't understand why someone wouldn't want to go to college and I sensed a little put down for people without the degree. I started giving him occupations that our society can't do without and none needed a degree. I told him that you only go to college if a degree is required for what you want to do. He got the message.

Irene, I did read the blog on Mani's site. A peaceful passing. Also, Sara and I deal with holidays just the way you do. We take it easy on those days.

Have a great day everyone.

Good evening Ladies. I am having a hard time writing tonight. The news of Gloria's sister Dorothy passing along with Mani's passing is hard to deal with. I'll miss my good friend Mani and I feel so sad for Gloria and her family. Two ladies I think the world of. Gloria, I wish I could give you a big hug and tell you that everything will get better. I know you'll never forget Dorothy but hopefully the pain will ease with time. She and Mani are in God's loving hands.

read all the posts. sorry for the bad ones but happy for the good ones.

I think I have the same problems as most of you. I have thought for a long time and now greatly sorry I did not act on them.

I never should have moved down here - up north I would have no problem as we had a great senior citizen center and the people were great. I was never alone when my DH died - had much support from all as they knew DH and I were alone - no family -all were deceased early.

I never met people like down here - very strange people - they want you to do everything for them but getlost when you need help. especially when you drive and they don't as being mostly from cities up north they never learned to drive. they all think you are their unpaid taxi.

well, it is 6 PM and I should think about food. will grab something frozen and heat up.

have a few comments - hopefully will get on line tomorrow.

take care everyone - have a safe happy holiday. terrible what is going on in other areas.

Also will miss Mani so much. She was always so good to comment on my blogs. I went to Mani's page and read the blog her grand daughter wrote. It mentions some names and tells the details of her passing.

God bless all of you.

I just got the sad news that my sister Dorothy passed away last night. I'm going to my sister Bernice's house, for her and I to spend the day together. We are the last of 5 sisters and we cling together. Sad day for us.

RIP my beloved sister Dorothy.

Good morning everyone!

Got a bit of upset tummy this morning and hope it goes away soon!

I wondered if those who knew Mani on here, knew that she passed away? Such a wonderful, caring lady and she'll be greatly missed. RIP Mani.

I'll pop back here later, got to shower and settle down my tummy.

Hope everyone had a good Friday today. Mine was busy but productive. I got 4 more boxes packed and a lot of shelves cleaned off and sorted to either keep or rummage. DH is still not feeling well but no solution to the problem yet. He does not want to go to the hospital until the last resort. I hate to see him in pain or any type of suffering but he says he would rather stay home as long as he can. I did go outside for awhile when he was sleeping and it felt good to be in the cool Michigan breeze for awhile. It clears the mind! I put the plants that I had put in containers around the different spots on our deck and it looks so bright and pretty. I just hope we don't get any more frosts! :) The only thing with container pots is the fact that I have to lift them to move them where I want them and they get so heavy. My DS will come over tomorrow to give me a hand and it will look so easy when he lifts them where I want them.

Had planned a picnic for family and friends for Sunday BUT if DH isn't better it will have to be at someone else's house as I just don't feel like it is a party time. But maybe it will be nothing more than sore muscles in his chest or a cold coming on. Only the Lord knows so we will wait and see.

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial day weekend and remember the reason we are celebrating. Hugs and eat like you are excited about your goal. Hugs

Back again. It got up to 94 this afternoon. I waited until the temp dropped down in the 80s and then went to work on the lawn sprinklers. I replaced 3 heads and extended the pipe on 3 others so they would spray over the plant closest to them. Everything is done but I discovered another head not working right. I tried to fix it but can't figure out what is causing the problem.

Irene, to have WIFI you have to have a router in your place. You might try unplugging the power cord from the back, wait 10 seconds, and then plug it back in. On my router that causes it to reboot and usually solves my problem. You are very smart about not discussing delicate business on the internet. You just never know who has access to the information.

Mel, no matter which path you choose for your walk Rokki will be happy to join you. A great companion.

Joyce, as I get older I try to keep up with electronics but when they fail to work for no obvious reason it is a pain in the neck. I hop

Hi Judy. Yes, it is no fun getting older and dependent on others especially when you have no blood family around.

Lew, I don't just blink. I have some very stressful business to take care of and it isn't finished yet. Actually I am reluctant to put it on the internet as anyone can read it and it is a delicate situation.

My angels are so busy but they said if I didn't call them they would feel bad. I give them money ever so often as they can use it.

Trying to decide wwhich short hike to do with Rokki this morning, then get my hiking boots on and get going before I lose my ambition. It is so gray and dull today it doesn't really inspire walking the trails very much. I am hoping that by doing it anyway I will develop more of an "all kinds of weather" approach to our walks as I know that is the way Rokki has it figured. There's a minus tide soon so I'm thinking of a shoreline walk for today. I take my Omron pedometer so I know how many steps and/or miles I am getting.

Happy Day all,
Mel

Lew, apologies from me, I should have known better . . . neither you nor Dumont would actually tell the Kayakers off with unkind words, but it still makes me laugh! Can't help it! And yes, I love the stories of your fishing days, brings back a heap of memories of when I'd go fishing from a boat, loved it! Where my family has vacationed for several generations, we would walk in the woods, loads of coyotes but we seldom came across them. Loved the woods, lake, just being outdoors in Nature. My son inherited that from me and he goes to the same place as my father, grandfather, etc., did, and he stays from May to end of September. Being retired, he can, and his wife understands and does not mind. He sure has a good girl!!

So glad Sara is having lunch out with daughters, being a mother of 3 girls, I know how wonderful it is to lunch and gab with them!

Joyce, I hope SP clears up the tracker problem for you!

Good morning all, it is raining and overcast again today. My tracker isn't working it is not uploading even though all lights and everything is green. Tried changing batteries, nothing. I sent sparks a email seeing if they can figure it out. My tracker is only 9 months old.


Blessings, Joyce

Good morning Ladies. it's a breezy but quite warm morning. Our 2 daughters are picking Sara up at noon for lunch together. She's looking forward to it. After she leaves I'm running to Home Depot to get a gallon of paint, sprinkler heads, and some PVC fittings. I'm going to be modifying and repairing the sprinkler system this weekend. Tomorrow I'll be repainting the molding in the bathroom. Sara wanted it painted with a satin finish and now decided she wants semi-gloss. It's her prerogative to change her mind. emoticon

Gloria, I need to clear up something. We didn't say unkind things TO the kayakers. It was a group of novices but their guide should have done a better job of teaching. We did say unkind things but only out of earshot of them. Creating more irritation wouldn't have helped anything and the guide was old enough to know better so he's not going to change. I'm glad you enjoy the fishing trip stories. I have always enjoyed being outdoors in the woods or near the water. The wildlife has always interested me.

Jude, sorry to hear about your husband. I hope the doctors figure it out and solve the problem.

Irene, it's great that you have angels you can call for help. I know how hard it can be to ask for help but I'm slowly learning how to do just that. You are so right about how busy this thread has gotten. I blink and I'm behind. emoticon

Dee, you have a good strategy to avoid overeating at the Baptism. Holding the baby has two benefits.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning, hope I do better on SP today, regarding posting!

Jude, sorry to hear about your husband. My sister had a pacemaker also and her chest got really sore, they found out there was infection and had to take out the pacemaker. I hope he is doing okay today.

Dee, thank you for the kind wishes for us all and do enjoy your great grandsons baptism today. I know you wont overindulge!

Irene, Im so glad you have angels to help you out. Yes, the ordinary jobs sure do get harder for us to do as we grow older. I dont think some of the younger folks realize this and its great that you have friends who do and are willing to help.

Mel, a streak is this . . . each person chooses something they need to work on, something they find difficult, but necessary to do. E.G . . . perhaps night time eating is their big problem, so they say they will not eat after such & such a time at night and that will be what they are streaking in. To see how many nights they can stay on track! My streak is to eat healthy foods and a treat once a week. I blew it by eating too many of my baked muffins, so had to begin over again. It is said that if you can keep this up, it takes 21 days to make it a habit, so actually we are helping ourselves and by doing it with others, we get encouragement and pats on the back to keep us going and sometimes a kick in the butt when we need it, LOL. It isnt to lose weight, it is to get ourselves going on the right track and to keep going. Hope this isnt confusing, I find it so difficult to explain myself, lol.
emoticon

Marie, before I moved into this apt on March 1st, I had a big house & yard. Had given up my veggie garden a long time ago but had beautiful flower gardens. I so enjoy having this one tomato plant and mixed flower plant on my balcony. Let me know how your tomatoes come along, I have a few very small ones on mine. Frost expected tonight so Ill bring them in.

I better go, I used to get up with the chickens but now it's almost "Owl time" before I open my eyes!
emoticon

Long weekend for my friends who live in the U.S.A, enjoy it and would you all like to come in and share your weekend plans with us? We'd love to hear about them and also hear about how you're doing!

Irene I am glad to see you are having a few free moments to catch up with everyone. It has to be so difficult to depend on others when you need something done. I know my DH always tells me what he wished he could do. But you are important so do what you can and let the rest get done by others. I hope you have a good day. I think that flower is a sunflower but as long as it is a flower then I love it. I will have to put some pictures up of my garden in bloom. It is always so beautiful but very time consuming. But it keeps me out of the food.

Hope everyone has a beautiful Memorial Day weekend and remember why it is so important. Have a beautiful weekend. emoticon

We have two great days of 70 degree weather before it cools off and rains again. I shouldn't complain as I have plenty to do in the house. The humidity is what is hard on me as it is harder for me to breathe. I am so anxious to have the windows and doors open to air out the house without freezing.
Being it is nice I will go for a walk. Then hook the Wii back up and do some bowling and golfing. I know it isn't as beneficial but it is more fun.
Tomorrow we will be at our great grandson's baptism and there will be a great lunch. So I will need my guard up to not overindulge. Maybe I can just sit and hold the baby while everyone else eats???
I love the fishing stories Lew. Brings back memories of when we used to go to the river fishing. Up before the sun.
I wish for health and a super nice day for you all.

Dee--youthful 70s

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

This is a busy site anymore and I see I am way behind. I have some very, very busy days and a lot of stress. Business stress.
House cleaner didn't come Wednesday and I had washed the bedding so called my shopping emoticon 's to see if they would come and make the bed. It is a heavy mattress and close quarters and I didn't want to fall.
They also took my garbage out. I have been trying to keep the place looking decent.

Evening everyone, Not a real great day for me either Gloria, DH had a set back of some kind but not sure what it is at this point. We spent the morning at the hospital waiting for the Drs. and then getting chest Xrays. He has a pacemaker so there are wires in his chest and it is really sore so not sure what is going on. Just what we don't need. But came home later and I packed a few more boxes of memories. Lot so glass items from my grandmother and then started putting albums of DHs huge stamp collection. If anyone knows a good appraisal company for stamps please let me know. We have about 3 full boxes of albums and they are so beautiful. Many of them are first additions etc. Then I went out and planted a few more flowers in my flower boxes. We missed our seniors dinner over here at the senior center as DH just was not feeling well enough so I made dinner and get him to bed for an early night. Now I am taking a break trying to catch up on stuff. I feel mentally tired today. It will be better tomorrow.

Lew I think one brownie is a great idea. It helps you fight against eating too many if you enjoy just one. And Sunshine I am sure the bran muffins will do their job and help you with that weight loss and weigh in on Sunday.

Okay ladies and Lew, I will say good night but usually everyone is in bed by the time I can get on here. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Have a wonderful Friday.

Good evening everyone. Not in a talkative mood, sorry, got things on my mind.

I almost didn't get in here and so glad I did! Lew, I so enjoyed the fishing trip with you and Dumont. I felt I was there every minute of the way. Got a kick out of you and him saying "unkind" words to the Kayakers, lol. Lovely outing on the boat and so much to see! One brownie won't hurt Lew, just as long as you're able to stop at one. I'm afraid I'm into my All-Bran muffins too much and though they are considered a healthy muffin, oh boy have I been paying for it!

Quiet day and quiet night. See you tomorrow everyone.

Good evening Ladies. Today started real early - like 3:30. I picked up Dumont at 4:30 and we pretty much had the roads to ourselves. We had the boat launch to ourselves and as we headed away from the ramp the eastern sky had just a faint pink glow. It gave me just enough light to see where I was going. A light breeze put a ripple on the water and when you looked towards the light you could see a faint sparkle on the surface but the temperature was already up to 74. As we ran north up the Intracoastal Waterway we passed a yacht anchored just off the channel with his white anchor light shining high above the boat. Once we got to our spot we could hear baitfish splashing all around us and Dumont hooked up to a nice fish. It got off after about a minute and that was a preview of things to come. As it got lighter we noticed a large white bird wading the shallows around the island. To our south a sole Manatee was feeding on the sea grass and then three adult Dolphins moved into the area near the Manatee. None of the animals came close to the boat and that was nice. At one point I heard a loud splash behind me and an Osprey had just snagged his breakfast and flew to a nearby tree to enjoy it. The yacht weighed anchor and headed north at first light. It was followed by a steady procession of yachts and sailboats headed north for the summer. The breeze kept us from getting hot. We fished until it started heating up and then we headed back to the ramp. On the way home we saw 4 pods of Dolphins and made our bow to bow pass on a big yacht and a large sailboat under sail. Back at the ramp we encountered a group of five kayakers that demonstrated zero knowledge of ramp etiquette. They had the entire area clobbered and we had to ease the boat onto the bank away from the ramp. Instead of moving their kayaks to the kayak ramp 20 feet away they took 15 minutes to clear the boat ramp. Dumont and I waited patiently while saying unkind things about clueless people. emoticon I know that's not nice but we did push one guy and his kayak off the ramp because he couldn't get it going. He did say thanks. After I got home and washed down everything Sara and I grabbed a bite and I took a good nap. No rain to speak of today and the temps remain high. I keep telling myself that October is not that far away. emoticon

Joyce, rain is good but I don't like walking in it any more.

Mel, it's great that Rokki is such a good companion. I'm happy for you. That said I hope you can find a better option for the eye.

Gloria, I'm having the same problem with thinking about food too much. Sara bought a box of Bakery brownies (6) and I ate 1. Shame on me -but- it was really good.. emoticon

Dee, glad the bug didn't last long. I think anyone that has lived with 4 seasons has gotten faked out by warm days in the spring. We have 2 seasons down here - warm and hot.

Hey Flo, welcome back. Good to see you again.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning everyone actually it is almost noon. Hope everyone has a good day.
This morning paid bills,, got ready for church council meeting later today. It is overcast, rained last night and early am. Excercise will be indoors.

Hi Flo, gosh it is so nice to see a new name and face on here. Glad you are back and checking in. My name is Judy but I go by Jude or daisypetal cause it is my favorite flower. I also have fibromyalgia and I know how bad it is. Seems like every nerve in the body is affected and if you let it, it is so easy to become depressed by the pain. I have to keep moving or when I do get up to do anything it takes me a while to start moving my body again. Keep with us and we will help you get through the bad days or at least help you forget the pain

Hi Dee, how right you are about this weather, yesterday I was freezing cold and trying to keep my newly planted flowers from blowing away. Tonight it was a little warmer so I went out and did some more of the patio plants but they are calling for possible frost again. Now I have too many pots of flowers to move them around. I also got out my Michigan clothes because after returning from Florida I have been wearing shorts etc. Not right now I am not! :) I agree on the appetite but I want to show a loss on Sunday so I am really trying. Mostly just incorporating more fiber into my low carb diet. Take care and enjoy your project

Holy Mackeral Mel, that would buy us all a pair of glasses. One thing you might try and do is if you have any type of training school for Vets, a lot of times they will do the surgery at a fraction of the cost just to have the experience. Hope puppy and I know how they are like our children so it is always a hard decision. Our little dog is 14 years old and now mostly blind and deaf. She still thinks she is a puppy so we keep her going. :)

Marie it is good to see you on even though you are busy with buying your tomato plant for mom. Maybe she will give you some of the fruit when it is ready. :)

Gloria, don't you be eating any more than one a day of the muffins or it is going to show up as muffins on your waist on Sunday. :) As for that loaf you were talking about, I would have a hard time with that so I am glad I don't live close enough to have you give it to me. :) I don't want the recipe as I love, love, love chocolate. I know you are going to keep trying so I know you will do what is best for you. Thinking of you. Jude

Lew, I think your computer knew that you wanted to concentrate on the fishing and not on SP so we will forgive you this time. Any fish you catch you can send to us girls and we will fix them up for a Friday Night Fish Fry. We could say, "Come on Over". Hope you have fun.
