Hello and good morning - Jane that is so nice of you to do those cards for gift shop. Hope they get approved. Have a nice day, lady.

Sharon, glad you got some rest last night. I suffer from insomnia also but Dr. gives me something to take so I can sleep at night. I know from experience what not getting enough sleep can do to us physically.

Mary, wow that was really hot for your area. Smart of your son to get out of heat. Sounds like you and your GD had a nice time also. Gkids are so special.

Nola and Joan hope you are all having a good day also.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Good morning all. Unbelievably the temperature hit 90 in SW WI yesterday. My son was at the Badger game and left shortly after the half because his seat was in the upper deck and he was getting too hot. Not usually a problem in October. He went to a friends tailgate party location and ran into his cousin who went to school at MN so they were able to discuss team rivalry etc and a good time was had by all even as they listened to the end of the game on the radio.

Little GD and I hung out, played cat's cradle, watered new shrubs and generally took it easy while Mom worked and Dad went to the game. Played for Mass last night and came home and watch a movied with oldest DD who came for the week-end.

Hope you are all have great week-ends too.

Mary

Good morning all. I had a much better sleep last night. I took melatonin before bed and even though I woke up 3 or 4 times I was able to get right back to sleep. I don't know if that helped or if I was just so tired from lack of sleep that I finally slept half decent.

Off now for our religious services. TTYL

Being crafty again. Making folded iris cards for the GMHVA to sell in their gift shop for Christmas. I know it is early but if I am going to have them ready for early November I need to get going. Also, need to show them at the membership meeting on Ocotober 12, for approval. We'll see if it is approved.

I can always give them as cards to family and friends.

Sharon, I am sorry to hear about your insomnia. I used to have insomnia but now I am on two meds that make me sleep. I don't know which is worse. I will keep you in my prayers.

It is a beautiful day here in SE Ohio. The trees are turning colors and it is lovely driving along the river. Best wishes for a lovely day to all. Janice

Good morning everyone. We just got back from the mailbox store and I got some things crossed off of my to do list. We are having some light rain here but I'm going outside and doing bits of yardwork when there is a pause in the showers. Sharon, I hope you can get some rest. Soon it will be over and you can return to a better nights sleep. My granddaughter is doing a little better( from car accident ). She's able to take a milder pain medication now, still has a very long recovery ahead. I'm so thankful.
Everyone enjoy your day.

Looks as if everyone is having great weather today. It is warm and sunny here in PA. It is warm enough outside to have the front door open to let in some air.

Not doing much today....did not sleep well again last night. I didn't fall asleep until around 12:30, woke up to use the bathroom a little before 4, and could not get back to sleep so I came downstairs to the computer. Felt as if I might be able to sleep at 7:00 so I went back up to bed, but I could only nap a few minutes and then wake up again. I gave up trying around 9. Guess I am a little stressed over the upcoming surgery and all the necessary prep for it.

It's beautful sunny day here in SW WI too. The temp is supposed to reach 80 today which is almost unbelievable for this time of year. My DS is off to Madison to the Badger homecoming, GS is marching in a parade in Platteville for another homecoming, one GD is off to her first hockey practice so everything but the temperature says fall. Littlest GD is hanging with Gramma today because her mom is working.

No big plans except to play for Mass tonight. Oldest DD is coming up this afternoon to hang out for the week-end also. Hope you all have a beatiful sunny day too.

Hello - Jane glad your dentist visit went okay and that you are doing okay. Do take care.

Sharon, a big hello to you, my friend. Hope you have a nice weekend. I have not received any notices today from SP. That's life. smile

Mary, glad you were not too busy yesterday! LOL
Those grandkids keep us hopping when they are young. Enjoy those moments, as soon they will be all grown.

Joan, wish that little one a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY, from me. They are so precious at that age. My GD's loved books when they were little, two of them still do a lot of reading.

Not doing too much - watched a load of white clothes and some towels. That is about it for me. Got my walking completed early this a.m.

HUGS to all and be safe.

Yesterday morning I spent 2 hrs sitting in the orthodontist office waiting for one GD to get something called a HERBST appliance on her teeth. It looks like little metal pistons between the top and bottom teeth on both sides and came with a multitude of instructions to pass on to her Mom.

In the evening I took the littlest DGD and we went to the Homecoming Parade downtown . Lots of school spirit, funny floats and her brother plays the bass drum in the MS band.

In between I shopped for groceries, ran to the drugstore for some eye drops and picked up and dropped off kids at school at various times throughout the day. I was exhausted last night. Today I have to bake dessert for a church fish fry but nothing else much except my kid taxi going on.

Have a great day all.

My Spark pages are a mess. When I try to get to a forum the icons and other pictures do not show just a little blue box with what looks like a ? in the middle. I checked my server and they got the same thing even using different sites like google, etc. Hope this gets fixed soon. It makes it hard to do anything.

My face is doing fine where the tooth was pulled yesterday. I am not to lift things or do any yard work for a week. I can walk so that is what I will do.

On your Sparkpoints page just scroll down the column printed in red almost to the bottom of the first section. It invites you to Play Trivia. To get the 3 points you have to continue answering questions until you get 3 right. Evidently my brain forgot to get up with me this morning since it took me 7 tries to get 3 correct answers.LOL

I get to trivia by clicking on sparkpoints from my start page and then following the list down to play trivia. It gives you as many chances as you need to get three correct. Three is the limit for the day.

Good afternoon all. I am trying to figure out where you are playing Trivia. the game I get only gives you 1 chance per day.

Sharon, I hope your knee replacements go just fine. I had both mine replaced within 6 months of each other. The first one felt so good I couldn't see putting the second one off.

The weather is cold but it is warming up just a little. The weekend is supposed to be beautiful though. I am glad since this weekend is homecoming.

Had my hair done. I really had it cut short. I just can't put my hands up to fool with it much.

It is hard to believe this is just Wednesday. I get to sub in the kdg. tomorrow afternoon. that should be fun. Have a great evening and tomorrow. Janice

Yesterday I got all 3 right. Today it took me 7 tries to get 3 right. emoticon

Just back from the orthopedic surgeon and I am now scheduled for double knee replacements on Tues., Nov. 2nd. My legs and hips are strong and Dr. feels I should bounce back quickly. It is going to be a busy few weeks with lab work, pre-surgery visit, and medical release visit with family Dr., then the surgery and physical therapy with begins on Sat., Nov. 6th.

Good morning - Sharon, good luck tomorrow with your Dr.'s appt. It must really be cold in your area. Stay warm and healthy.

Mary, enjoy your day with GD.

Nola, you have a good day and make the most of it.

Did my walking early and it was a nice cool morning. I now have to wait until about 7:00a.m. as that is when it starts getting light. Next month we change the time and I sooooo wish they would leave that alone. I can't see that it makes a difference.

Hugs to all and have a blessed day.

Yea, got all 3 trivia questions right today..

We had a great rain last evening, not I'm going out to plant the rest of my flowers. Maybe that will count for my walk and exercise for today. Oh I'll probably go to zumba tonight.. but my buddies aren't going to the gym today so that gives me more time to get stuff done around here.. Now if I'd get off the computer that would help.

No clients today yet so I'd better get busy.

Lupe, for us here in Wisconsin it seems strange to hear someone wishing for an early winter but I guess I would too if I lived in Texas. We have been having cool nights and had frost over the week-end but the days have been spectacular with sunshine, temps in the high 60's and low 70's and even some mid 70's predicted for the week-end. That's really good for October. The trees are beginning to be really beautiful too, but as much as I enjoy this time of year, I am not real crazy about what follows so I am not wishing for an early winter.

Our HS has no classes today due to a broken water main in the parking lot right outside the front entrance, so one of the DGD is coming to help Gramma with some housework etc. She needs money for a field trip and a couple of event t-shirts so Gramma is willing to pay for housework.

Hope you all have a great day.

Hello all. It has been so damp and rainy here all day that our furnace has been running quite often today trying to keep the temp in here at 70 degrees. I have been wearing a long sleeved shirt today and am still chilly.

Tomorrow I see the orthopedic surgeon to schedule my knee surgery. I will give it one more try to convince him to do both knees at the same time. If he still is reluctant then I will have one done and a few weeks later the other one. Hopefully, in a few short months I will be walking pain free. WOO HOO!

That sounds like fun to me. There is a chill in the air. In the 40's, guess I'll have to pick my green tomatoes today. It didn't get warm enough to ripen them, but I put them in a newspaper lined box, set them in a closet and they are o.k. that way Have a good day everyone. I'm going to do trivia now. It is a learning experience.

Good morning to all - nice cool day today so am enjoying my morning walks. On my walks I pass a Cracker Barrel Restaurant and it sure smells yummy when I go by there. The restaurant is across the street from our complex so we can walk to it. I love to go and look in their gift shop area.

Take care and God bless you all.

It is a gloomy day around here. We took my aunt and went to find a lawn mower. Thought there would be a lot out there on sale but most places send them back to the warehouse but we found one at Sears. I had to get a new printer. My fur babies had a time on my old one, making it print at 3am even if I turned it off they could start it. Now the door to my CD player is broke and I can't get the new one on line. What Else?? Hope everyone else had a great day. Janice

I had forgotten all about those trivia questions so I just had to go look at it and try it. Thanks for the reminder.

I do the trivia questions every day and I find that I learn a lot from them, and sometimes by the time the question comes around the second time I actually get it right.

When things were not going the way I wanted them to, my Mother used to always say "this too will pass" and she was always right. These excess pounds will pass too if we believe.

Good morning all, we are blessed with a cloudy kind of misty morning. what a relief from the heat. I got out and planted a few of the petunias I picked up yesterday. It's a wonderful day for playing in the dirt. Will take some time to go to the gym though. Have to have time with my 'buddies'..
then back to finish up the planting.

I didn't do well on the trivia questions the last few days. They are fun and informative.. but I don't know a lot of them which makes it nice they give the answers and explainations. Do any of you do those on the spark points page?

Mary, glad you had a good time at Wicked. I saw it a couple of years ago in NYC , my first and only time there and to see a 'real' broadway play.. what an experience.. one I'd like to do again sometime.

The day is done and I am off to bed very soon. Had lunch with the retired teachers or as I call them the "Lunch Bunch" and a restaurant that overlook the ocean and reef. Very clear and smooth all the way out to the horizon.

Hope all is well.

Good Morning Group. A beautiful sunny chilly day here in SW Wisconsin. Yesterday I went with my SIL,DIL,DD,and two GD to see the play Wicked. We took a bus to Madison even though it is not that far away, we didn't want to deal with the traffic and parking at the Overture Center. It was a spectacular production and a good time was had by all, but all came home exhausted.

This morning I took the littlest GD to church and to the A&W for lunch as today is the last day. Friday was the last fish fry. It was quieter today and DGD actually had time to visit with Gramma and her cousin. She is majoring in Social Work and is a straight A student. We are very proud of her. She has worked at the A&W every summer for four years. The owners treat the kids who work for them like family and the same ones tend to stick with them until they get out into the world, and even then come back to help out now and then.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. I added a couple pictures of my newly landscaped yard to my sparkpage and actually figured out how to link it to this forum so hope you all can take a look.

Good afternoon to all. The weather yesterday was grand and the picnic went off without a hitch. There was so much food that we all had leftovers to take home. (Tonight's menu will be hot wings and the leftover pasta salad from yesterday.) Although my knees were very stiff and painful I got in a bit of exercise playing a game of quoits (horseshoes using rubber rings instead of the metal horseshoes). Lot's of bending to pick up the quoits and good exercise for my arm throwing them. I actually managed to make 3 points in the game. A refreshing day.

Not sure why I have not seen this forum for a few days. Just caught up on the reading about what you all are doing. Glad everyone is busy and working at staying healthy.

I had my teeth cleaned Friday. The dentist checked my teeth and said one needs to be pulled. The bone is the problem with the tooth loose that will affect the one next to it if not taken out. Appointment is Wednesday.

Hello -

Sharon, I don't envy you making that much potato salad. Hope the rain lets up so you all can have a nice outing.

Janice, will give my cousin that extra hug. It is hard to imagine that it is 2 years since little Emi left to be with our Lord. Prayers for you.

Getting ready to go to church and them to my cousin's.

Everyone have a nice afternoon and take care.

Good afternoon all. It is a beautiful day here in SE Ohio. Chilly morning but warming up nicely.

Lupe -- Please give your cousin an extra hug from me as one who knows her loss. Our Emi will be gone 2 years Oct. 18.

Sharon -- that is a lot of pasta salad. Glad I don't have to do it. Cooking for about 20-25 is my
limit.

Nola -- I am glad your muscles are getting back in tune. I am not sure mine have ever been.

Well I wish all of you a blessed Sunday. Janice

Mary -- We have Sonic restaurants around here that have the speakers and the car hops but it doesn't sound as neat as A&W (I love their root beer.) What is your granddaughter majoring in?

Good morning, just got back from a 45 min walk. I will get it up to an hr soon. It is so beautiful early in the morning, listening to the birds wake up and watching the sunrise.

Yesterday I walked, then went to the gym, rode the bike for 30 min. then did upper body weight work. I didn't go in last night for more zumba or anything. I think I'm beginning to listen to my body.. emoticon
Hopefully by Monday I'll be back up to speed.

Looking forward to a great weekend. although they don't mean the same as they used to when the kids were home and out of school.

Didn't do much today other than cooking. We are invited to a picnic tomorrow (hopefully the rain will be over by them) and I was asked to make pasta salad for 40 - 50 people. I also made a big pot of chicken rice soup using up some leftovers from Thursday's roast chicken dinner.

We had friends in tonight and I managed to get rid of the last of the 2 apple tarts I made yesterday. They enjoyed the tarts and never realized they were not made using sugar.

Hello - went for my walk early and the weather was so nice.

Mary, you are quite busy with the new yard and I bet it is beautiful.

Nola, I also love to hear and see the birds in the a.m. I hear/see them when I walk and it is so refreshing. My mom use to tell us that they were singing for God.

Not doing too much. Tomorrow we are going to a cousin's 70th birthday party. Really looking forward to seeing all the cousins as we have not seen each other in a while. This is my cousin who lost her only DD to cancer last year. This year has been a rough one for her. I can certainly uderstand why!

Wishing everyone a good day and make it count.

HUGS to all.

Went for a great walk this morning, then sat on the patio with dh and had coffee, watching the birds come down to eat.. many years ago when the kids were still home, youngest dd asked 'why do old people like to sit around and watch the birds?' then several years later she remembered asking that question and was telling me how much she enjoyed feeding them and watching them emoticon

Will go to the gym later this morning and do some weights, then coffee with friends.(that's my favorite part) no food tho.

Have a load of laundry going so will finish that and off I go.. Have a great day all.

I'm not sure how I missed yesterday. I had a friend over for lunch but spent most of the day moving my hose from one newly planted bush to the next. Getting them all watered properly will be a challenge for the first few days, but all is looking good.

I have another lunch date today with a couple of friends and tonight is the last Friday night that our local A&W drive in where my older gd works will be open so we will all go there for fish fry. It is an old fashioned drive in with drive up speakers and car hops and is only open from April to the beginning of October because they employ mostly HS and College students. DGD has been working there for several years as she is in her second year of college and she loves working there. The owners treat their "kids" especially well.

Have a good day all.

Good evening to all - I did not get any notices from SP today from this site. Finally got on to SP and then on this site.

Janice, sorry to hear about your aunts health problems. I know the cortisone shot will make her feel much better - those shots hurt sometimes but they do work.

Nola, glad you are not overdoing it with your exercising. You have to ease back into or you could strain a muscle or something so do be careful. You will be back to doing all of them real soon. Take care, lady.

Mary and Jane, hope you are both doing well and that today was a good day for both of you.

Wishing all a blessed and restful evening.

HUGS to all.

Good afternoon everyone. I have been busy the last two days taking my aunt to the doctor. She had a very sore elbow and they had to take fluid out and put cotisone in. I hope she feels better now. Always something. You all make me so envious with all your energy. If you have any extra please send it my way. Best wishes to all. Janice

Well, the soreness from my two classes on Monday did hit me worse on Wed. I made it to zumba but didn't stay for Pilates as my abs were just too sore. Dh would snicker at me as I groaned getting in and out of bed. Glad he could see the humor in it..

I did 50 min on the treadmill and bike this morning, but no wts as I did plenty of them yesterday. My body is saying 'take it easy'.. I didn't do anything for 4 months then want results in 2 wks.. aren't we silly that way? or is it just me?

Still hot here but was 61 this morning so that was perfect for sitting out with a cup of coffee to start the day.

Good morning and hope everyone's day is a good one.

Nola, how nice that you got to see your dgs and that you had the opportunity to take him to dinner. Our military people are so awesome. Take it easy with the zumba!

It seems that everyone is getting their gardens ready before winter comes.

Mary - your yard sounds like it is really nice with all the plants, etc. Take pictures and post them so we can see that beautiful yard.

Joan and Jane, don't over do it with pulling weeds. I know from experience that is a lot of work and it really gives you a workout.

Did my walking early and we are still having cool mornings. This makes for a nice walk.

Wishing all a blessed day.

Your flower bed sounds much like mine, only it's smaller. We have woods surrounding our place here in WA. I do like the perrenials and we plant bulbs.
Many leaves fall in the winter while we are in CA, making a natural mulch. Our shade garden consists of helliborus, ferns. Pretty easy to maintain, the birds and squirrels, owls love it. Now I have to go outside and do some weeding. Never ending job. But good exercise. Everyone enjoy your day.

The crew is done for now. All the new bushes and the rocks around them are in. Now I have to water them daily for a week, transplant some of my perennials to the new area they prepared for me, and work on getting the weeds out of my flower beds. My yard is a double lot that is 200+ feet deep so there is plenty left for me to do. Hopefully the new plantings and rocks etc will make it easier to maintain. They will be coming back to spread mulch/bark on the other areas after I have had a chance to transplant the perennials. Plenty for all of us. It does look wonderful though. The new bushes are a combination of yews, hydrangeas in both blue and pink, winterberry bushes and some new perennials, coral bells and astilbe. My old hostas have been transplanted to the west side of my house which is very shady and grass doesn't grow to create a shade garden which is really pretty. I'm a happy camper.

Have to run a grandchild to Madison for an appt. this afternoon and school of religion starts for the little one tonight. Always something to keep Gramma busy.

Have a great day all.

Wow Mary, a crew to do your yard.

Mine is coming along very slowly. It seems the weed grow faster than I can get them out. I do not want to us a bunch of chemicals so when I get through with an area and go to another the weeds come back with a vengeance. Of course if I have the rest of my life to work on the yard then perhaps someday I will get ahead of the weeds and get the nice grass to take over.

Nola, where do you get all your energy? Glad you are able to do all the different exercises. Keep at it.

Be well all!

Good afternoon all. I subbed today in 6th grade and we got out at 12:30. It was an easy day. all I had to do was monitor tests.

Nola -- I would love to do that Zumba but I am afraid I would fall flat on my face. I have started using my cane a little more. My balance is just Kaput!

Jane -- I am so glad you didn't peel. It is so itchy. I got my flu shot the other day and the doc threw in a pneumonia shot for good measure. Two sore arms.

Mary -- Your grandchildren really keep you young, don't they. It is hard to believe my youngest is going to be 13.

Well, I have to fix supper for my aunt and hybby before TOPS. Wish me lighter. Janice

Good morning,

Went for a walk this morning and watched a beautiful sunrise, then went to Qigong.. now to take a shower, go for a massage and on to Zumba at 5:30.

Had a busy day yesterday. Went to the gym for an hr, had coffee with a friend. (that's my reward for going to the gym) ha
I went back in for Zumba last night and did pilates right after it. Feel better than I deserve this morning.
I was thinking I might be a bit sore. it may hit me tomorrow too.

Have a great day all,

Good morning - Mary, so glad you got off to a good start today. It does make for a good day!

Jane, good for you for getting your flu shot. DH and I get ours every year also. Glad you did not peel from your sunburn and smart thing using an umbrella.

Hope everyone else is having a good day and making the most of it.

Well, everyone was up and ready to go this morning so we got off to a good start. The oldest is in the HS Musical this year and said that practice went very well last night, she thinks they finally have the first scene down. They are doing Fiddle on the Roof which is one of my favorites.

My landscape crew was hard at it all day yesterday and things are beginning to take shape. I think it is going to be beautiful when they are done, and much easier to maintain. I have a few perennials to transplant when they are finished, but not too much.

Cool and sunny here today, but by tomorrow we are supposed to be back in the 70's. Nothing too exciting on the agenda today. Have a good day all.

Good afternoon all. I had to laugh when I read Mary's post. It had been my fear for 30 years that I would oversleep and not get to school on time. I still think about some mornings when I sub. Thank the dear Lord it never happened. I was always early. Jane, how is your sunburn. I hope it is easing away. I wish I could garden but my bones say "No Way". Lupe, you are getting to put up pictures. They always add that little touch of yourself. Well I am in the middle of laundry and some cleaning but I thought I would take a computer break and get my wind. Have a great day. Janice

Good morning friends. Did my walking to a rather brisk, cool morning. Temp was 56 this morning and it sure felt good.

Mary, sorry your day started out shaky today. It seems that when that happens, the day just is not the same. Take care and be blessed.

Wishing all a blessed and joyous day.

HUGS to all!

Doing some laundry and then some things here. I think we finally brought everything from DD house so now we are handing pics.

Wishing everyone a great day and be safe.

Thank you, Mary. Your grandchildren are so blessed to have you. I really miss seeing mine, but will go down to CA in early Dec. and get to see them all, and a new one will arrive in Nov. I'm doing laundry today. It's cloudy with some showers expected.
We loved the stew and it was easy and quick to make.
Hugs to all.

I've been remiss in mentioning JoAnn's granddaughter and Nola's brother. Both are in my prayers daily. It seems my prayer list has gotten awfully long. I hope I don't forget anyone, but I know the Lord knows.

Got the week off to a rather shaky start. One set of grandchildren overslept this morning so my son took the little GD to school and I took the other three so no one would be late. It happens sometimes but it seems like the whole day is messed up when it does. Oh well, we got everyone there on time, if a bit frazzled.

Hope you all have a good day .

When things were not going the way I wanted them to, my Mother used to always say "this too will pass" and she was always right. These excess pounds will pass too if we believe.

It is getting late and I have not been at the computer much today. The rain messed up my yard work this morning but I did get some in.

Hope all is well with everyone. Nola, praying for your brother that healing take place.

I just dropped in say "Good night". Mary, your service sounds lovely. Nola - I'll keep your brother in my prayers. It is a hard recovery. Blessed Sunday to all and a wonderful day tomorrow. Janice

I feel so bad for all of the young people out of work. Young to me is any one under full retirement age.
I think this is our new economic reality. The manufacturing jobs have left and with it the engineering and scientific jobs (the large companies feel that the engineering and scientific employees should be in close proximity to the persons involved in manufacturing the products). The countries where this is taking place are promoting education of the indigenous population to better meet the needs of the companies. This is irreversible.

Hello - Jo Ann - glad your GD is doing better.

Nola-will keep your brother in my prayers and you take care of yourself.

Mary - I love to hear music at church and yesterday we had the Children's choir sing and they all sing so beautiful. Members of the choir also did the readings for the day. It was really nice as they sang to organ music.

Jane, glad you had a nice day.

We woke up to cool weather - our high today was only 78. Very nice day.

Wishing all a blessed evening.

I'll pray for your brother , Nola. I'm sorry to hear of the toes being removed, so glad they didn't have to take the whole foot.

I am doing little bits of housework after church and listening to the falling rain. We had a very nice day yesterday and may have sunshine this week.


My granddaughter is doing well considering her injuries in the accident. the doctors are hoping for a full recovery.

Enjoy the rest of your day or night. Hugs to all.

I did get for my 45 min walk this morning. not as far as I was doing in the spring but will get back to it. it was 77 degrees so was a bit warm. and that was at 6AM.. will start to cool off soon tho.

Took yesterday off and cleaned. today is watching football games a bit and maybe getting in some yard work in between.. but just a goof off day.

Will hit it again tomorrow.
Bro had to have all his toes removed but they saved the foot partially. a month rehab time at least. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

We did the same for our Pastor a couple weeks ago. The musicians got tipped off just before Mass that it was Father's birthday so we just casually announced it along with the number for the opening hymn. He told the parish is was an "unauthorized announcement" and asked who told us but we didn't tell.

I got to have a treat last night and listen to out of town musicians at Mass. My neighbor's were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary and their two daughters who are professional church musicians played and sang. What a treat. Then I had to play for Mass this morning since I got a break last night but that's OK. I really enjoyed the music last night.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday. Sunny and quite cool here today but we are supposed to warm up this week again.

I have a red face but it does not hurt. My pastor likes to embarrass people on their birthday by having everyone sing to them. My face was a little redder for awhile. Good day with a baby dedication and lunch after church.

I it hot and sunny here most of the time right now. When it rains though, it pours! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good evening everyone. Jane--I hope your sunburn isn't too painful. At least it was in a good cause. Mary--I am glad you will get to sit and listen. I love listening to music. Lupe--I am so glad you are finally getting rain. Sharon- It is so nice to have you back. I hope everyone has a lovely and blessed Sunday. Janice

We are having beautiful weather here in WA today. I am so glad because harvest festival time is here. Fun tractor rides for the kids, animal, beach watcher, exhibits, so many things to see. My granddaughter is getting better each day. Thank you Lupe for your prayers. I got some cream of mushroom soup so I can try Mary's stew recipe, it sounded so good, I'll make it tomorrow. Everyone have a good Saturday.

What a nice surprise for you, Mary. Usually when you contract work they show up late instead of early. What a blessing!

Wishing everyone a wonderful, restful weekend.

Good morning - wishing everyone a blessed day and a great weekend. Not doing much as we have some hard steady rain in our area.

Take care and be healthy.

Happy week-end all. Jane, I sort of envy you the sunburn. We are having a cool spell here in SW WI. Fortunately we are south of the areas with the floods that you may have heard about on TV. Central WI, southern MN and part of SD got torrential rains on Wednesday night and are having serious floods.

I got home from my lunch date yesterday and the landscaping people had already torn out all of my old ratty wild bushes. I wasn't expecting them to start until next week so that was a pleasant surprise. Today I have to go to church in the afternoon and instruct some visiting musicians on our equipment. It is two girls who are playing and singing for their parents 60th Anniversary. The parents are neighbors of mine and I am happy to help because then I get to sit in a pew and listen to the music for a change, and these girls are very accomplished so I am looking forward to it.

Have a great week-end all.

Wow! I didn't realize I haven't been here for a while. Subbing 2 days and another day of doctor and retired teachers just cut into my online time. Hope everyone is well. I will read all the posts later but I did see a stew recipe I might need to try. Have a great tomorrow. Janice

Jo Ann, will certainly keep your GD, Krystal in my prayers and will add her to our prayer list at church. I am glad that she is home recuperating and that the drs. are optimistic about her recover.

I haven't been on here much lately. I have been on the telephone and computer with family. My granddaughter, Krystal 25 yrs. old was in a very bad car accident last week. She has been released from the hospital and is at home recovering. We are very thankful that she lived , it is a miracle. The doctors are hoping for a complete recovery. I appreciate the prayers from so many.
Hugs,
Jo Ann
