where do you get your Solgar7? Did you get my text? LOVE YOU!

Can you believe it is raining here and only 69 degrees? Yesterday it was over 101 here! I am not complaining, just happy the heat is gone!

Jetta, I swear some of it is the Solgar 7 (boswelia and tumeric) and even though I know you are not suppose to, I put undiluted Frankincense on the shoulder the worse night.

Good luck dear. I hope you can loosen it up. If you were closer I would come over and fix you up.

it is very rare to get that hot out here, the last time they said it was in 2015. It is supposed to be down to the 80s today. Even though it said we were at 101 on the news, it did say 106 on the porch. TOO HOT! but happy it is cooler now. Stepson is coming Thursday for a surprise for Joe, his birthday is on the 8th and Joe's bday is on the 1st. I am so happy he is coming up for the first time.

Joe loved the game last night, his first professional soccer game he ever went to. He loves soccer. It makes my heart warm seeing him happy.

Ann, wow, I have been having rotator cuff problems for over a year, sometimes barely being able to move and like you said, effects my neck and back. Wish I could do what you did. I am in tears so many times over it. Just the other day, we were looking at campers while waiting for an oil change, I was stepping out from a camper, not thinking, I held on to a pole with my left arm and hurt my shoulder almost as worse as it was before acupuncture. It hurts so much!

Hope you all have a SUPER wonderful week ahead!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Good morning everyone,

Jetta and Joanie - Tai chi is the qigong's child, so to speak. It is the martial arts form of working with qi, where qigong is for healing.

Joanie, great work on yourself. I am being very careful about what music I listen to. I know repeating words can actually make your body believe it to be true. I am a blues and rock lover but can't listen to or sing it everyday. So happy you are finding what works for you and taking care of yourself. You are right, everyone deals with grief differently. My sister is mentally unstable, always has been. I spent many years in therapy over her and her cruel words. I have high boundaries now.

Kathleen - So I have two exercise here for sciatic pain relief. They also help with neuropathy, damaged cartilage in hip and knees, numbness in legs, rib and chest pain. I will post them on Qigong thread here.

Jetta, I will do the same for shoulder pain. Not using it will actually make mine worse. I am probably at 98% now. My rotator cuff was so bad before qigong that it affected my neck and ended up compressing my discs. I was in a cervical collar because of my shoulder. I had #9 pain all the way to my finger tips, it was really bad. I was in tears, nothing touched it.

I will have access to some information soon on many illness and diseases and how to use qigong to treat them. It is something he put together for the doctors of Mayo Clinic, he has been working with them for almost 20 years. Hopefully fibro, Ceiliac, arthritis will be included.

I did some work outside yesterday, not as much as I had hoped but my DH was out there in a mood and I couldn't stand to be around him so I came in and did things inside. Will go out today when the sun is out a little more.

I will go put those qigong exercises up now. Will take a few minutes.

Have a great Monday.

Morning!
We've had such a pleasant cool down here. Actually selpt without the ac on.

Good luck with PT Kathleen. I'm off to the rheumatologist today. I hope I get a shot. Just dawned on me last evening that some things I was attributing to a slight depression fo some time now (fatigue, not up to doing anything) is actually my fibro. I realized that how my muscles are feeling is wearing me down hence the need for sleep and why I just don't feel like doing much esp. after work. My muscles are always of late feeling so tight and if say I try to massage myself it actually hurts for some time after. Seems I've forgotten how a flare up can be as I haven't had one like this in quite some time. Back to getting my exercise in even if only a bit and pushing myself to do it.

Jetta, I bet Joe had a grand time last night. Hope you get some heat relief. I didn't realize where you are that it gets so hot. Do you have humidity along with it?

Have good one Ann, Claire, Peaches, Sparkling and those who just read.

Namaste

Good evening. Nice hot day today, about 95 here. But supposed to start cooling down for the next few days.

The sciatica kicked in on my right leg last night and it was so painful, I was up and down every half hour trying to find something to take to calm it down but nothing worked. About 2:30, I finally sat down and started tapping on it, and after about 20 minutes, it calmed down and stayed calmed down the rest of the night,and through today. I will tap on it some more before I crawl into bed. I napped for an hour or so today and it helped but I pray I can sleep most of the night tonight. I have to go for physical therapy tomorrow for the arthritis and I want to feel good. I also did a little qi gong today. Not much as I tire easily, but I have to keep it up. I'm using Lee Holden's program for seniors. Not difficult, I just have to start being consistent.

Went to lunch with my weekend friend. She was actually pleasant to be with. Food and service were good - place was really noisy as it was packed and several little toddlers decided to scream. But we sat them all out and enjoyed talking for a couple hours.

Hope everyone has a lovely day tomorrow.

WOW, I am so proud of you Joanie!!! WAY TO GO!


it didn't really cool off last night and Joe didn't sleep well, I got up[ before 7am ( the sun comes up here at 5am) and I started watering everything because it is supposed to be 101 today. Already too hot. Joe is going to a soccer game this evening and I am worried it will be too hot. I still haven't told him he is going yet, I will when he gets up. I have frozen water, sun screen and those wet towels like you said Ann. I just hope it isn't too hot for him. He had a heat stroke years ago and now is sensitive to heat. I planned this a year ago and geeeeesh, I just hope his birthday present is a good one for him. I love him so very much!

I will just clean and do laundry today, not sure what else to do in this heat.

Ann, glad you heal yourself fast. I have been working on my shoulders but my left one is still really bad. Hurts so much, It brings me to tears at times. I try to not use it at all but just reaching out triggers PAIN! I am thankful my right shoulder is better at least I can use one of them. I have been having acupuncture since Feb and PT for a year till I stopped it.

Hope it is cool for you Kathleen! Joe's parents gave us some money which is paying for most of the cruise. I can't wait. Sorry you had a bad rap with that cruise line. We have always had a good time with them, although it has been awhile!

Sue, hope you are doing ok, we miss you girl!!!!!!!!!!!!

Peaches, I LOVE YOU!

Sparkling, hope you are having fun somewhere!

Everyone else lurking. I LOVE YOU TOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Morning!
Glad you're feeling better Ann! Good luck with July. So tough. Everyone grieves differently, the nephew, not sure and your sister well-don't know what to say on that. Blessings to you all! You take care of you and remember that your brother is always with you. Just talk to him-he's there. That's what I do with Candy. I went to the funeral home Friday, but not the service yesterday. She knew my feeling on death and funerals. That's something others won't understand, there will be comments on me not going to the service but that's ok-it's their thoughts, not mine, not Candy's. I did what I knew was right in my heart. I talk to Candy still, say good morning to her & she lets me know she's around. I am blessed.

Jetta I'llpost you the links, later when I'm doing my paperwork. I did one last night and it help both my shoulder pains.

Hi Peaches! I can relate with music. I tend to do the same. I'm changing that a bit. I would jam to my metal music when the going gets rough but am learning to do the tone ones on youtube and feel a difference. It is said that 100Mhz is the universal vibration.

Have to dress and get mom groceries. Tomorrow rheumatologist appointment.

May you all have a good day!

EDIT In doing meditation a few things are starting to click for me. One is why I feel so um detached from my new home is that where I used to live for all those years -it was my gram's house- it was my 'safe' zone - even with all I went through in life- when I was little I'd go to grams for safety from being in trouble with mom, when I lived there gram's spirit was there with me, so I always felt safe no matter what now- I don't have that. I have to learn to work that out after all these years of having a 'safe' zone.
Also when I do regression meditation, I keep seeing in the past how I was alone without a spouse bc they had passed and I had a life of struggle. So I've carried that on to this life. That's also why I feel the strong need of having my children around, in past that is what kept me going and who helped me. It is also why I can't relate to the man I love my DH not so much as relate but more of letting my heart totally 100%be with him, I was hurt many times in the past lives I didn't 'learn' how in the past. I had built many layers of walls. This is not that those lifetimes. Now I have to understand more and break the cycle. A cylce of always struggling and not getting ahead, not truly feeling knowing love.
Make sense?

Good morning,

Jetta, congrats on the cruise, sounds nice.

Peaches, keep singing or whatever will raise that vibration, perhaps you need a CAT scan, lol (as in kitties). Sending you light.

Couldn't sleep so up at 6am as usual. My shoulder is 95% healed from PT exercises, qigong and Solgar 7. Only needed to ice the one day. My DH just shakes his head at how fast I can heal myself now. I called my nephew and yes I did feel really guilty about not going. He said he doesn't like being alone. He will be here July 28th to release my brother's ashes into the bay. I am not clear if he wants me to put it in the paper, have a service open to the public or what. He just keeps saying "whatever you want". Well I want my brother alive, but that isn't happening. My sister said she isn't coming even if we change the date, I am worried about her already fragile state of mind.

Today I think we are headed to Waldorf to Mom's organic market so I can stock up on rice, raw seeds, popcorn and anything I find on sale. I LOVE their volcano rice, it's organic, locally grown and holds up in dishes really well.

We went to a couple of estate sales and I found 9 wonderful books, one on essential oils, a few on healing with crystals, one by Louise Hayes, one by Caroline Myss, they were all in excellent condition and all 50 cents each. Also found beautiful brand new curtains for the family room for $2. I should have bought a couple of beautiful rugs she had for $60 each. I just need to stage that room when we are done painting, I have the furniture but need rugs.

Well better run. Maybe hominy and eggs for breakfast. Will be doing yard work when we get back since the temps are only in the 80s and the humidity will be low.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday.

Joanie, I would love the link to it too. I am still having a lot of pain in my left shoulder! Acupuncture helped my right but not my left one so far!

it is 100 here today, we went and walked the neighborhood at 8am and it was pretty hot then.

Just took a nap and keeping cool this afternoon!

What are you all doing today?

Peaches, so happy you liked the reading and it made sense, thank you for letting me know! LOVE YOU!

Joanie, you sound better. You may still have your moments, but it feels like you are processing through your emotions. Love and light to you my friend.

Jetta, the new reading is very applicable. It is time for me to embrace the change and opportunity presented to me. I have a tendency to shrink back from the opportunity to soar, but this is the Universe's plan for me.

I've tried raising my vibration with music. I was in a very bad place the other day and cranked up the tunes in my car. I started singing along with the music and found it didn't come as easy as it used to. I'll keep working with it.

We had a cold front sink in and have gone from record highs around 99 down to the 60's yesterday with 70's forecast today. I can take the high heat if we get these breaks in between.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Peaches

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Hi. Nice day so far - a little cooler but humid.

Leg still not happy but I was able to sleep. Gotta figure out what to do to calm down the pain.

The podiatrist was very nice - my first appointment with her. No problems with my feet. I asked about what to do about the swelling and she said a compression sock would probably help, but not good for people with heart problems, so that leaves me out. But she cut my nails so that is handled. I go back in three months so she can do it again.

Jetta, of all the cruises I've taken, the two worst ones as far as the treatment from the crew were both on Royal Caribbean. I will never cruise with them again! The maitre 'd bawled me out in the dining room in front of everyone because I complained about the rudeness of one of my waiters to someone in the Buffet. And on the second cruise, they just weren't nice. First one was a 2 week cruise from Australia to New Zealand, and the second one was a 10-day cruise from Vancouver to Alaska in a heavy storm in September, and then back to L.A. I've loved my cruises on Holland America and Princess and am happy I am going to cruise on one again next year if I get to go. Also NCL has been good to me. But I also will never take assigned seating again. I was put with wacko people because I was cruising solo, and I couldn't get away from them. With anytime dining, I could eat when and where I wanted. I usually find a waiter I like and ask to be seated in his section. Works great.

Quiet day today, but tomorrow, I take my son shopping tomorrow so that'll be fun.

Have a great day.

Joanie, all that is a normal process of grieving! I know it is a little different being that you are dealing with co-workers. Sending you LOTS of love and patience!

It is supposed to be hot day today, watering everything this morning. Might go to a movie, not sure!

You all have a great Friday!

don't forget to write your checks tonight or all day tomorrow!

Jetta, you lucky girl. What cruise line and ship are you going on? I was on two cruises to Alaska and wanted to take a third one - a 2 week cruise on Holland America that went to Anchorage where most ships don't go. But once I wasn't working any longer, that was not doable. I have a coastal cruise booked for March that goes up to San Francisco and back down to Ensenada and San Diego on Princess. I took this one about 11 years ago but that one stopped in Santa Barbara and this one stops in Monterey instead. I mostly want to make sure my health is good enough to deal with a cruise so I can find out if I'm okay to take a longer one if and when I can afford it.

Weather is hot, but not as bad as Palm Springs or Barstow where the temps are around 111 or so. It cooled off a bit today and was actually pleasant. But it is supposed to heat up to about 95 here again in the next few days. No humidity so it isn't sticky, but fires seem to kick up every day. There's one going now in Big Bear with all the dead trees. Glad I don't live up there right now.

Going to the podiatrist today - first time. I want her to cut my toenails and tell me what to do about the swollen feet. I only have one pair of sandals I can wear as my feet are too swollen from the arthritis. Dang.

Time to rest a bit before I head out. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Happy Anniversary Joe and Jetta! I hope you had a wonderful day.

Peaches - work can be so frustrating. I am glad they learned the truth. The hubby and I were discussing retirement options for us - still at least 10 years away for me, but we are finally to where we can at least think we can afford to retire.

Kathleen - you might like Atlanta. There's lots of filming happening here now. So glad you were able to talk to some of the crew. I know that's something you enjoy.

Ann - will keep your family in my prayers as they travel. I'm glad the pilot knew what to do. As for the noseeums, I understand plantain leaves (a weed that grows rampant in my yard) are good for stopping the itch from bug bites. I've also heard that nail polish helps with noseeums. Good luck!

Joanie - still sending you hugs and prayers. Take time for you.

Back to work (you know it is a four letter word). Have a great day!

Hi everyone,

Jetta, thank you for the reading. Will have to reread a few times because I cannot connect it to my original question.

Kathleen, must be fun to watch them film. Hope your doctor can help with the swelling.

Peaches, I am glad that ordeal is over for you. I still feel hurt when I think about lies that people told on me. How do you handle it so well? Admire you.

My nephew's wife and stepson were flying to London yesterday for a week. This is why I was going to visit him, to keep him company, etc. Something was wrong with the plane and they ended up flying in circles for 4 hours to burn up fuel before landing back in NC. Thankfully they are fine and the pilot had enough sense not to try and make it to London. My nephew didn't want them going due to the terrorist attacks, but her father is from there and they will only be touring the city one day during their stay. Please send all of them some good energy, (Tracy, Jake and Kevin). Thanks.

I made the mistake of going out in shorts at dusk last night and was eaten alive by noseeums. Still itching this morning. Had a very nice meditation with Master Lin last night, very healing.

Went to bed at 10:30 and was up by 3:30am. I wish I could see sleep 8 hours every night. Will be taking a nap (probably when I try to meditate this morning, lol).

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

TY. HOpe everyone is well.
Kathleen if you ask the podiatrist for a toenail trim, they will do it. Lots of elderly are in the same situation as you. Take care.
Glad things worked out at work Peaches. Where's those kitty pics?

Hi everyone else. I'm hanging in there Friday & Saturday will be rough with the funeral.
Love you all!

Happy Anniversary, Jetta and Joe. So glad you are so happy and he is so good to you.

Joanie, I haven't expressed my condolences for the loss of your friend. It is hard to say goodbye, but just know she is healthy and happy now and probably coming by to say hi when you think of her. Nice to know you will have a sweet friend waiting for you when it is time to join her.

I'm doing okay. I feel tired most of the time lately. Spent most of the day just napping and watching tv, and doing jigsaw puzzles on my Ipad.

I went to get a bone density test yesterday. The techie didn't show up until I had been there over 1-1/2 hours. He forgot that I was scheduled and this office isn't his home office. But when he got there, it took him all of five minutes to set up, take an xray or whatever it is on my foot and I was finally on my way home. Total waste of time as far as I was concerned.

I go to my new podiatrist tomorrow and I am hoping to get her to cut my toenails as they are too thick and too far down to reach. My feet are so swollen from the arthritis that I only have one pair of sandals I can wear. I will be interested in what she has to advise.

Last evening, I picked up my silly 87 year old friend and we went to meet our monthly senior dining group for our June meeting. Room was too small, but the food was good and so was the service. But my friend has a bit of dementia so it is hard to talk to her - she is all over the place and is constantly talking but can;t seem to focus very long on one subject. But we all grinned and bore it. I love her to death, but like my weekend friend who also has early Alzheimers, I can only take them in small doses. But I still want to be there for them while I can.

Lots of heat here. Thank God for air conditioning. A film crew was filming across the street again today and I stopped and talked to one of the crew when I took the dog out for his walk. . Very sweet guy and fun to talk to. He says he hopes to see me again when they come back on another shoot. Love it.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow and stay cool.

Hi all

Crazy busy. Hoping in the next week we'll get the budgets set for the next quarter and can get on with producing stuff. These quarterly budget exercises wear me out.

I had a complaint filed against me about a month ago at work. It was all a lie, but disturbing. Today I got the word the claims could not be substantiated and the case is dismissed. I am so relieved.

Happy anniversary, Jetta!

Ann, I agree you need to take care of yourself first.

Hi to everyone. I'll pop back in for a longer post soon and will comment on my reading.

Love and light,
Peaches

Happy Anniversary Jetta and Joe!

Jetta, does he have a cooling hat or towel? You can buy at Bed, Bath and Beyond, they do help. I think even Walmart just sells the towels now. My DH can stand the heat and said his towel worked. Just a thought.

Claire - I guess you are going to be making some pickles with all that rain!

Ann, you need to take care of yourself first. there should not be any guilt for that. I sure wouldn't drive 5 hours unless it was one of my kids. Take care of you!

Nice today but it is supposed to get in the mid 90s this weekend. The hottest day is when I paid LOTS of money for Joe to go to a soccer game with a friend! I am really worried it will be too hot for him, he can't take the heat and I bought these tickets a long time ago for his birthday! I am praying it will be cooler than it is supposed to be. OK angles, LOTS cooler for him or that he is not hot where he will be sitting. It is his 60th birthday wihch will bring us the same age again lol

Hope you all stay cool or dry or whatever you need. Joanie, thinking of you, hope you are doing ok with the grieving process! We all love you very much!

Today is our 21st anniversary, who hoooooooo seems like longer lol. The first marriage is only a bad blur! I love this man so very much! i AM SO LUCKY!

Have a good Wednesday everyone!

HI HI PEACHES, SPARKLING, SUE, KATHLEEN, SHARYL! AND EVERYONE ELSE

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Your every loving act, thought & feeling blesses everyone everywhere... every time you smile, you are a channel for more love and beauty to come thru you and into our world.

I LOVE YOU!!

Good morning all! Rainy and dreary here. Monday was the last time I saw the sun and it rained around dinner time. I also haven't been able to get into the garden to pick anything so I may have some freakishly large cucumbers when I do get out there. The rain yesterday was so heavy, there was some flooding.

Sparkling - the hubby would like your pool. He won't get into the water until it is over 86 and prefers 88 or higher.

Joanie - continuing to send you hugs and prayers.

Ann - good to see you. Muggy is normal here.

Jetta - we need to cut grass too. We were going to do it Sunday after lunch but it started raining during lunch. Oh well. It will get done when it gets done.

Have a great day all!

Good morning everyone,

Will be 88 again today but you can already feel the humidity. I will be working on the pool so shouldn't matter too much. I was suppose to go to my nephew's this weekend but I just can't bring myself to make the 5 hour drive. I feel exhausted most days and need to get myself back on track. I dread calling him.

Sparkling - love the pics. Jetta - you have so much energy, send me some please.

Joanie - hope you are doing okay. Hugs

Hope everyone has a nice 1st day of summer. We have 14 hours and 53 minutes of sunlight today, woohoo!

Joanie, sorry about Candy but so happy for her! That is so cool that you saw her at that time too! that is really special!

Cleaning, gardening and stuff like that. Having a friend over tomorrow for BBQ, it is our anniversary! I still need to mow the front and back yards.

Sparkling you are so organized. way cool!

Have a good day! LOVE YOU ALL!

Good afternoon,

It's beautiful here, 88 degrees and low humidity. Have worked on the pool and planted some herbs. Came in for a drink and to think about what to make for dinner.

Joanie, emoticon

Sparkling, don't know how you handle that kind of heat. We are moving a bit north when we go, hopefully we will get away from some of the horrible humidity here near Washington DC. Less HOT AIR, lol.

My oldest DS called today. His lying girlfriend NEVER told him anyone died. He was upset to hear about his uncle. Oh well, nothing he could have done for him anyways. My oldest granddaughter is 14 today, hard to believe. I have also been gone from hospice for 5 years.

Well back outside. Joanie, keeping you close. Everyone have a great day.

Yes! I'm SO happy you 'saw' her!!!! It is because you are open to her, as you know!

emoticon 6-20-17 Today is breaking a heat record for the first time EVER recorded! 118. I was asked how I live here. I get up at sunrise & walk LUCY pup; water outside plants that need a boost from drip system; gather trash or whatever before the garage heats up; swim before the sun hits the pool, it was 87 degrees in it this morning, (The water is the temp. that it is at night) & drink lot's of water & electrolytes & eat ALLOT of fresh veggies & fruits. Keeping the concentrated foods to a minimum. Then do errands, etc. all before noon. emoticon Save the computer work, reading & indoor activities till afternoon. How are YOU dealing with the weather, this last day of Spring? emoticon

Candy passed this morning. TY all for your support!

Funny as I was walking down the hall at work about the time she passed I had seen an image of her walking the hall (she was an English Professor here) and made me happy.

It feels SO healthy & that is my goal for ALL of me! emoticon It is 111 today, a littler cooler than yesterday.

IF I win I get 2 months free hair cuts. If he wins I need to take him to dinner! (He likes VERY expensive restaurants!) I have 1 more month. He has lost 6# & I gained 4! YIKES! But I'm trying, & I'm working out again emoticon , so that will help, having 2.5 months off to heal knee, was hard for me to keep it together emoticon .

Good morning. Going to be a hot day today, but I am comfortable as long as I am inside. But the dog goes to the groomer in a few minutes and I need to run to the market for a few things, and maybe stop somewhere for lunch. But once I am back inside, I'm not going out except for the dog.

I had a fun Father's Day with my son and DIL. Their kids had other plans so they weren't along, but of course they called and I saw balloons and cards in the apartment. We went to dinner and on to a movie - fun evening.

Looks like the celiac and gluten and soy intolerences are dissipating. I had some dessert with a friend night before last, and ate some cashew milk ice cream yesterday with no adverse effect. I checked with the pendulum and it said it has dissipated, thanks to that past life session I had a couple weeks ago. I know I sure feel better and what a relief to know that I can try to eat something I've avoided for months again. Maybe I can get the diet going and start to lose. I think my weight is part of the problem with my legs. But when food is so limited, and limitations are a big button for me, I end up eating way too much fat that I shouldn't be eating only because it's about all I can have. Grr. So, we'll see how it goes when I start trying to introduce new/old foods back into my diet. Yay. Thank you, God!!!!

And now it's time to take Teddy to the groomer and hope the cleaning crew comes in and does a nice job while I'm out - and not steal anything. I am still wondering if they took my can of money plus some stainless steel spoons that seem to be missing.

Have a wonderful day.

Hi everyone, (when I posted this 6 days of your posts were not visible to me so I am editing)

Joanie, I am so sorry you have to let her go. Let yourself feel it. Keep talking about her. If you feel those around you are tired of hearing it, call me or Jetta. I am a good listener, I apply the 2 ears, 1 mouth rule - listen twice as much as you talk. When I just connected with Candy I heard Into the Mystic by Van Morrison, maybe you had mentioned it before or it might be a message to you from her. You will see her again, she is not gone from your life. Look for a dragonfly, I will be sending you something thru FB shortly.

Sparkling, wish we lived closer, I would love to try and keep up with you!

Jetta, there is probably a mix of essential oils that would do the same, but we hardly use the Vicks and when I am sick, the last thing I can do is think...about oils or anything, so I grab that jar and it works. So excited for Joe, make sure you take a pic at the airport. What a wonderful surprise. Glad you feeling better, pies look amazing, I have never attempted lattice.

Claire, I had to keep several sweaters in my office. The funny times were when you would forget to take it off and step out for lunch, lol in 95 degrees. I remember when we first talked about your daughter years ago, I think my reading was something she was eating. I will have access to some very good files soon and will be able to help her more. Hopefully by next week.

Our pool is now a pretty light shade of green so I am for 2 more bottles of shock and hope to be in by tomorrow...fingers crossed.

Father's day weekend was good because our DS came home. He is still having some problems with his throat and I know that means needle aspiration of the cyst on the thyroid, but just told him to hurry and make another doc appt. He turns 26 in August and has to switch his insurance to his employers. It will not be near as good of coverage as he has under us. I slept til 12 today. Stayed up every night late with son, got up every morning early with husband. Wish their schedules would come closer together because it wipes me out.

I hope everyone has a great Monday. Hugs

Relatively quiet weekend picking squash, cucumbers and peppers. I finally had 2 tomatoes get ripe. The 42 tomato plants will probably ripen all at once.

Gotta run. Have a great week all. Joanie - you'll continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Morning.

I can't say TY enough for your support right now and reading my thoughts.

Jetta-I just needed the alone time. You know that's a rarity for me.

Back to work today. It's a lull there right now. I like it better when busy. Unless they approve my change in classification (would mean working an hour more each day) it will be like this as I don't have clearance to do what needs done. Frustrating.

Still no news. I've haven't been breaking down as much but I'm sure I will once I get the official word on Candy.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Do anything fun? DH wanted KFC yesterday for fathers day so I pay the price of the msg today. lol Salad for lunch today!

Hugs love light blessings....

TY Still no more news.
Trying to get out of the funk, so hard.

DH had a nice late lunch w his daughter yesterday and I surprised him with a strawberry pie and humming bird feeder. (He got his gift awhile ago--a ladder he wanted lol)

It was nice to be alone yesterday w myself for a few hours just layed on the couch watching a lifetime movie. In evening I weeded and watered (miracle gro time). Storms coming again today thru tomorrow.

Today just doing what needs done and laying around. I have no feeling to do anything.

Hope you are all feeling OK

Hugs and ty I feel so alone right now even though I have my hubby. Guess it's just learning a new phase in life?

Hi.

Joanie, my heart and prayers are with you and your friend. So hard to lose a best friend. I lost mine a couple years ago. Take good care.

The weather is so hot today, and the temps are going up for the rest of the week. They expect Palm Springs to get up over 120 and it should be close to 100 here. Thank God for air conditioning.

I met my weekend friend for lunch today. We ended the meal with sharing a piece of cheesecake. I was sure it would bother me, but when I checked with the pendulum, it indicated it was okay so I ate half - man, was that good. First one I've had in at least 2 years.

I ordered a few groceries to be delivered to me so I wouldn't have to go to the market as I wasn't up to it today - mostly wanted my gluten free bread - the idiot delivery guy brought me regular wheat bread, burritos made with wheat, a roasted chicken half the size I expected and he forgot the watermelon I ordered and paid for. I ordered a few other things that he brought. But I told him to return the bread and burritos, and the delivery company credited me with the cost of the stuff I had to return. But to get that credit is another twist to figure out. All I really wanted was the bread as I can only eat one brand and only Ralphs carries it. So, I will go in tomorrow and get it myself. I really let the app know I am very unhappy about this guy. I probably won't use it again for a while. They are supposed to call if there's a problem but he didn't bother. I'm not a happy camper tonight. Plus I ate too much sugar today so that isn't helping. And my holistic doctor told me to stop eating oatmeal every morning as it is triggering my appetite. What else are they letting me eat??? Yikes.

Meeting my kids for father's day tomorrow. Grandkids all have other plans so it will be just the three of us. Going to dinner and a movie. Should be fun. Hope I can sleep tonight.

Blessings to everyone.

Hi all

Sorry I've been missing. Hectic week at work and trip to Minnesota for FIL's final service at the national cemetery.

Joanie, sending you much love, healing light, strength and courage as you process your grief. The only way to get through an emotion is to be in it until you get to the other side. Let the tears flow.

Remember she is always with you in spirit. Just look inside, go within and she will be there. She is only slipping the bonds of this physical earth plain. There is no separation in Divine Mind.

Love and light to all,

Peaches

Joanie, it just takes time but the more you let yourself cry, the faster it will go. Then there will be times that you bust out crying because something reminds you of her. My friend saved me in elementary school, Jr. high but didn't make it to high school. she died when we were 15. She was the only one who really understood me and knew me to the core. We also had dreams together and I still think of what if and how would we be together with grandkids etc. Yes, but I don't cry anymore, I just wonder and love her still.

You can even talk to her spirit/soul right now and she will hear you. She is not there in her body, it is just a shell right now. So talk to her as if she was right there with you.

Love you sweet Joanie! I know how much it hurts and isn't fair, the good ones seem to go too soon.

I have drumming circle tonight, 8 has signed up so hope they all show. Joe and I had a nice walk today, first day well, afternoon that it hasn't rained and is a little stronger. I am feeling good, YEAA!

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

OMG that's rough Jetta!
I'm still a mess. One minute I'm fine, next crying. I feel like a part of me is missing. So hard. It's rare to find that one friend that you connect with so deeply ya know? We had talked how like when we were old what we'd do etc. Now...I'm just lost. Dh doesn't know how to console me. I don't know how to help me. I just pray for her family now that they can let go. I have that's why it hurts so much. I miss her and love her. Nothing new-- yet.
Sparkling ty happy bday to your DH my DH bday is Saturday. What do you find interesting about a gemini?

Here's a pic of Candy & me at my wedding.

no it sure doesn't Joanie! We pick our real family huh! Hope she passes sooner than later for everyone! I am sure she will show up in your dreams! When my best friend passed, my mom had taken a picture of me the day of her funeral and there was a huge white blob right next to me in it, and I know it was her. That meant everything to me. She would still come to me especially after the birth of each of my children and the marriage to Joe. We used to talk together while I went on my daily walks. She has now come back so I can't talk to her which I really miss. She is my granddaughter that I am not allowed to see. ONE day I will though.

So Joanie, she might come back soon or maybe not this lifetime, you never know. We are all here for you though girl! Like I said, call me anytime! I am 3 hours ahead so it should be fine.

Thanks Sparkling, the pie was so delicious! You have to try one soon!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Ty it hard this cancer just ran wild in her. I still say the chemo really is what did her more harm than good. They say she'll pas within two days now. Family doesn't have to be blood. Sorry I'm just s mess right now. So many things here that Candy gave me over the years like I'd give her gifts too. We used to take turns getting tater tots & chocolate chip cookies fir breakfast at work lol we'd come up with funny names fir people. She wanted us to have a girl's weekend when she got better. We always text good morning n good night to each other for years

Thanks Claire! Only a little sinus and sore throat this morning. all good! joe started his antibiotics last night, just wasn't getting better even though we don't like to take them unless we have to. He started to sleep in bed last night but coughed too much so he was again on the couch. He said he is home but not really, he still misses me.

I made my first strawberry rhubarb pies yesterday, a neighbor gave me the rhubarb and I wanted to bake them before I was well, if I was sick. lol haven't tried them yet, but looks yummy! I have made pies before but never a lattice one either so that is also a first for me!



Joanie, I am holding your hand, I do feel that her parents won't let her go but she is so ready. I hope she goes in peace, you are right she is an angel and heaven is waiting for her. I love you my sweet friend! This brings back my best friend's death too so I know! Call me if you need to talk!

Have a Blessed Thursday everyone!

Morning all. Joanie - continued prayers for you both.

Jetta - feel better. Don't let this cold get you down. Lots of fluids, especially hot tea like Tazo Chai is really good for head colds.

Meeting this morning. 31 days until the wedding. Trying to not get stressed.

Joanie, let us know. She is ready to go home though, I know you don't want to hear that.

Well, Joe shared, and I am not feeling well this morning. We did the Vicks on both of us last night, don't feel different, I hope I am ok to hold drumming circle Friday! I really enjoy that.Joe is a little better but not much, maybe he should start the Abx!

Still cloudy here today supposed to rain a little bit.

Thank you Kathleen, I will look him up later!

We did see wonderwoman yesterday, it was pretty good, did drag a little but was still good. Not what I expected at all but enjoyed it!

Have a good day everyone!

Good morning all! Continued prayers Joanie.

Kathleen - I have heard that hypnosis can help with lots of things. I'm glad this is working for you.

I could use a nap today. I was having a hard time relaxing last night then the fur baby decided he needed mommy to sit with him. I went to the sofa, got comfortable and two of the other cats curled up with me. When I went back to bed, the first fur baby was on my pillow! Ugh. I took him back to the den, then had a hard time going back to sleep. Apparently, there were distant storms last night, which is probably why the baby was upset.

Well, gotta get some work done. Have a great day all!

Morning!
TY Kathleen, will check it out when time permits.

We had storms yesterday and were without power for a bit. Good thing Subway is close to work, that was dinner. Can't cook on the grill in the rain lol Calling for the storms again today. We need a reprieve from this heat & humidity.

Waiting on word about Candy. A friend was going to visit her last night. What I hear isn't good. I can't go see her. I can't hold myself together enough to do so and even before all this she would stop me from going to her home so I'm going with her wishes. If she changes her mind I'll see her. We are connected in other ways and she knows my feelings and prayers etc. TY all who pray for her healing. Her physical body just can't tolerate much more and her spiritual side is so-so currently. She's on morphine and other meds for pain so you can imagine her mental state.

Other than that, not much else.

Glad Joe went to the dr. Jetta!

Hi Claire, Ann! One thing, it's hard to post from phone sometimes. Anyone else experience that?

Namaste all!

It's called Rob's hypnosis. He seems to have hundreds of videos on just about everything. His website, I believe, is robshypnosis.com. He also does EFT. He's British but apparently living in Italy right now. Good luck.

Just an update - OMG, the hypnosis for arthritis really helped. Most of the pain is gone!! I'm blown away. I actually feel like doing stuff around here again. Wow!!

I am going shopping in a few minutes. My local supermarket has very good roasted chickens but I can't deal with the seasonings as they use carageenan and/or xanthan gum which I am very allergic to. But the gal at the deli counter told me to call ahead and they would make me a special one with just salt. So, today, I called, and it will be ready in a little over an hour. I am so pleased.

My monthly social security check comes in tonight - I had to wait five weeks for this one and almost ran out of money, but I made it. Something else I am going to try this guy's hypnosis videos for. That and obesity.

So, I have a few minutes to get ready - I'm taking myself out to dinner while I'm out, too. Probably get poke - love that stuff. Shrimp, tuna and crab - very yummy.

Hi.

Jetta, I found my reading. It is so apropos. I love the third card, the runners. Ithey work so hard for me already, bit I didn't realize they had a name. So cool. Thanks so much.

I decided to see if I could find a good hypnosis video on You Tube to help with the arthritis pain. Ran into one done by a guy named Ron. I think he's British. It was very good. I want to get up and move around and see if it helped. He also has a bunch for weight loss including a very short one using EFT to stop the cravings. I think that is really going to help.

The Vicks really helped me sleep last night even though there was pain when I woke up. The petroleum doesn't bother me - relief from pain is much more important. I don't intend to constantly use it the rest of my life - just when I need it. I'm so grateful for the relief it gives.

Going to the holistic doctor with my son tomorrow to get untweaked from that fall last month.

Have a wonderful day.

Jetta - petroleum based isn't the best but if it works, I'll use it. If you can find Solstice (maybe Soltice), try it instead. It is not petroleum based.

Yes Sparkling - our bodies do rebel. My youngest is having to rely on others for her food, so she's having to teach them about Celiac and cross-contamination. She was helping prepare dinner one night for the 100+ people. Just touching bread made her hands swell and turn red - they were making meatloaf and she was tearing the bread into bits. She had forgotten to put on gloves. Now everyone knows just how bad it can be for her. I just hope they are more careful. She's also doing grocery store runs where she will pick up multiple bags of hamburger or hot dog buns, but I don't know if that's affecting her. She did have to call her doctor because her feet and hands have been swelling so much it hurts to walk - she's 21 and taking a diuretic (22 in 16 days). If anyone has any suggestions for her, I've run out of ideas as to what will help.
