Happy Birthday Mary Lou!!! I am coming for the Shoney Pie too.....
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well friends I will not be too active on the chat threads as I am getting traction for my back pain and have been advised complete bed rest....can't sit up for longer that 15 to 20 minutes...that curtails my computer time.... you can read it on my blog.

Prayers & good wishes to all

Happy Birthday, Jean

Got through the day with just a couple of melt downs.....it is prayers of many that are holding me together...for some reason the hardest time is when I have to leave the house knowing I will be coming back to an empty house. DJ was always laying in front of the door waiting to greet me and now all I see when I walk in is an empty spot..

my house still feels so empty...

weigh in at TOPS in the morning....if down this week that will make me 8 weeks straight of being down...

Went and picked up the shredder this afternoon and it works well. They called a stock boy to help carry it and he carried it all the way to the car.. Our Walmart is a small one...and they are now building a big one across the street...used to be a K-Mart but they leveled everything and started from scratch. We won't know what to do with a super store.

I am feeling a little under the weather with a tummy thing. Something I ate hopefully and not a virus. Can't stop yawning so need to go to bed.

Hugs and Blessings to all, goodnight,

Dear sweet friends,

I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I have been at your response to my birthday! I know if we had the chance to relive one year out of all our age, I would select this 83rd year! You helped make me so happy and proud to know you as friends! May your special day be as blessed as you have made mine. Thank you so very much for each and every message for each one had its own sweet thoughts. I truly love you all.

Hugs emoticon emoticon

Finally rain. Its so hot and dry here. The wind knocked over my flowers and broke the pot. We both ran out in the rain dug a hole and planted it in the ground. I hope it grows.

Made raspberry pancakes for dinner. They were very good with fresh raspberry's. I made the pancakes from scratch. Much better than in a box.

It is getting dark early now. I can feel fall in the air. Hate to see warm weather go.

Buttercup found a little baby toad in the yard today. I thought she was going to kill it. I made her leave it alone. The poor little thing it was so small. Buttercup had fun for a while.

We came home today and the little yorkie was here. He loves to be here with us. He just loves DH and the treats he gets.

Over and out.... Barbara

Marylou that is a never fail pie and is good I love it so do not bake it a lot. I usual bake 2 because the pie shells come in a package of 2 I give one to Vicki or one other friend of hers who moved here from Fla. She had never had it either, Never even heard of it. I told some one you could put a little sugar and water together and make a wonderful desert, I often wonder if it is really that good or is it because it is so pretty, Guess I just like it . I have wondered if you could bake it with any other fruit so far have not come up with any thing. Any of you have an idea?

Happy Birthday Jean. emoticon I know I did it earlier as I saw you were celebrating it early, so thought I would join the celebration. Hope you are having a great day.

Colander, I use to have one that was cone shaped and stood in a metal stand. My mother had one and use to make rice potatoes in it. I wonder what happened to mine. I don't can so must of sold it at a garage sale as I was not using it.
Plum butter sounds good.

Iris, so happy you told us about the other airlines. I sure hope this is only temporally.

Mattie, sounds like you are ready for the battle. Stand your ground.

Mickey, your remark about the kids not giving your friends a 50th party reminds me of our anniversary. We always said our kids could not afford a party, so we would just drive thru McDonald's and call it a party. But, my mother wanted us to have a party, so we did one in WI and none of our kids were there, but my Mother was and she enjoyed it. We did go have our picture taken under the Golden Arches.

Going to the mall and do some walking today. Then play cards tonight.

Yes, my colander is cone shape and I am not sure where I got it. I have had it a long time. I may have bought it but I would have been married 60 years and probably obtained it in the early years. I used to can a lot more than I do now.

I am on my third batch of sand plum butter this morning. Like I said, I cook it in the microwave so I don't have to stir it. I do 10 minutes at a time and do stop the microwave to stir about every 5 minutes. I am making smaller batches today as yesterday it boiled over. I should have 16 to 17 pints which is more than I need, but I will probably give a lot to kids and grandkids. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Reading a bit while waiting for DH to get up. Marlene, could the colander be a Foley Mill. My mother used one about 70 years ago) that was shaped like a cone but now I think they have flat bottoms. I will have to look that up.

There's nothing wrong with conversing with small creatures, plants, or in my case dolls. Sometimes you want to say things that you wouldn't want to say to a another person. Some things are better left unsaid.

When we purchase heavy or large items we get them to the trunk of the car in a wagon and open the box to remove things that are in pieces. We get them into the house that way too and reassemble them. We do that with the large flats of bottled water too. We carry half at a time into the house in bags.

Word from DGC is things are going well in Israel. While American airlines are temporarily grounded, El Al is still flying if it's necessary to leave. The trek to Valley of Flowers in India was cancelled because roads are closed due to landslides. Cassy is on her way to Chandigarh. I will read about it in a little while.

Have a great day. Iris

Happy b/d Jean hope you have a wonderful day .

Don't have a lot planned for the day other than the usual , Think Vicki said she would be here sometime this am we shall see , Plan to go talk to the man giving me fits about darn computer I think he is under the impression I do not have a darn brain in my head but he is in for a wake-up call. I want the thing he had tested done by an independent dealer .

Going into work early as I want to leave early. Taking some friends out for dinner who just celebrated their 50th anniversary; their kids did not give them a party-felt sorry about that. They have been long time friends of ours.

Have a good day, stay cool and hydrated.

Happy Birthday, Jean! emoticon I hope you're enjoying your day.

I got up rarin' to go, this morning - but the temperature is rising into the 90s and the humidity is high. We will have an "indoor" day, after all. If I get at it, I can finish the back of Ahnu's sweater today and perhaps start on the sleeves. The quilting project has been sitting long enough, also, so I may work on that a little during nap time - only 2-1/2 months to finish it!!

Marlene, your plum butter sounds sooooo good. A little shop near here sells the most wonderful pear butter - just spicy and yummy! I would love to make some jams, but all my canning supplies are in NY.

Have fun with your new shredder, Dot - but don't get carried away and shred your lottery ticket or the kitchen curtains!

Barbara, I think it's cute that you chat with the animals around you. If they ever respond, watch out! LOL

OK. I have stalled long enough. The dishwasher needs to be unloaded and there is no doubt some laundry I could do... Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Jean. Hope you have many more.

Well, today going to be a heatwave and then in afternoon storms into Thurs. Then we will cool to the 70 again. I had been drinking coffee for a few days and the acid has gotten to me so I too an acid, but my stomach is not up to par today. I love coffee but acid does not like me.

I have been revising my novel some as got a rejection. Found some places where I something I added can be omitted and still the story will flow. Had ac on yesterday and again today because too hot to do anything. In six weeks or less we will be in fall and complaining about the cold again.

Iris, a emoticon to you. Sorry, I am late but can't seem to get on schedule. I know July is full of Spark birthdays.

To those who wished me happy birthday a little early, thank you. When one gets my age, one day is just as ok as another.

I read all the posts....but too late to take notes. Sorry....

Iris, I love hearing about Cassie in India and the GC in Israel. So happy they are all safe and that they will never forget their journey

I will try to do better tomorrow.

Hugs emoticon

I made 6 pints of wild plum butter(jam) today. First I had to run them through the old fashioned colander. I guess that is what it is. It has a wooden thing that you go round and round as the pulp goes through and the seeds stay in, it is a lot of work. I have enough pulp to make at least two more batches but I got tired and no more tonight.I cook it in the microwave so I don't have to stir it.

My son in law mowed the yard so I have been out watering bushes and trees. It is so still and still very warm at 9 pm,

Now it is time for bed. emoticon

Hi everyone - warm, humid day - drank a lot of water today! Was happy that DH got a piece of fish he could cook on the outdoor grill and he did a couple of ears of corn in the microwave -worked for me!!

A belated Happy Birthday Iris - just never got on line last night, was too tired. Hope it was a good day for you. Think of your grands in Israel often and send up a prayer for their safety.

Elsie - sorry about your pet; after we put our dog to sleep I told my DH "No more pets unless I think it will outlive me." It is so hard.

Doris - hope Jan gets the help and healing she needs.

Lee - I love face time. I use it with my DGD up in NH - I will admit she has called me on more than one occasion that I still had 'bedhead' ! But it has been a lot of fun.

Have a good evening-
Mickey

Hello Everyone,

MaryB, So sorry about Arell you are both in my prayers. Glad that 911 responds so quickly to your calls when you have an urgent emergency.

Mel it is good to sleep in ~ I love it, not every day but some ~ when I feel very lazy and have no reason to get up. Today was lunch and Bible Study with the ladies group. My morning goes so quickly it seems I am always in a rush to fixed my lunch and be ready to be picked up by 11:45. We are now in the book of Judges in the Bible. We had a really good discussion going today.

I ordered a new Shredder from Walmart and it is ready to be picked up...hoping Chris will take me to pick it up since I will find it is to much for me to get it in the car. He will be home shortly from work. So going to close this now.

Might be back later - then again might be playing with my new shredder.

Have a good one!
hugs and Blessings,
Dot

Mel sometimes it feels good to sleep in. I wish I could but every morning at 6:00 I am awake.

Ladies I talk to everything. My flowers, the bugs on the raspberry's, little toads, everything. My DH is a man of a few words. I have to talk to something LOL.

Very hot here yesterday and today. I am not liking it as much as I thought I would. We can't go out and do anything. We wait until the sun goes down or early in the morning. Even the dogs will not go out. I tell them we are going for a walk and they turn around and want to go in.

Guess its time for General Hospital DH woke up.

Getting here late as I slept in late. I did not sleep well the night before, so I guess I made-up for it last night.
I did go out to eat last night with friends. Then went to play cards.
Only plans today will be to go to the pool tonight and exercise. I should not say that as it seems every time I say no plans, something pops up.

Iris, what an adventure you DGD is having in India. I read in the news today that they cancelled some commercial flights going into an airport in Israel. Hopefully there is more than one airport.

Doris, so sorry to hear you DD is on bed rest once again. Will continue to pray for her.

Elsie, so sorry about your lost. It sounds like your family is right there by your side. That is good. Tears are good.

MaryB. my DH also had confusion about day and night. One night he got up several times and each time thought it was morning. So he went thru a whole box of cereal. I did have to call for help several times when my DH landed on the floor. They were so helpful getting him up and checking him over.
I will keep you and Arell in my prayers.

Marian, keep knocking at our back door as we love hearing from you.

Marlene, that sounds like a great day. Must of brought back lots of memories. Hopefully you can spend more time with her before she heads back to CA.

Lee, I have never used FaceTime, but I do have it on my phone. He will be able to see you and you will be able to see him while you are talking on the phone. I have a friend you uses it to talk to her DGS in Costa Rica. She also shows him to us while she is talking to him.

Time to get on with my nothing planned day.

Kilean is napping, so I thought I'd check in again...

Lee, I have Facetime and it is the greatest - just like Skype, but easier. You can choose to call someone on the phone (regular call) or on Facetime, in which case you will see each other face-to-face. The neat thing is that - being on a cell phone - you are not tied to the computer. There are only two problems: 1) not everyone has Facetime and 2) you have to make sure your hair is combed before you answer your calls! emoticon

Marlene, what a wonderful day with your friend. I'm sure you were tired, but what a happy tired.

Elsie, I don't use the fabric softener sheets in my bed linens, but I do stuff them in my shoes. Often, you can actually re-use the ones from the dryer as they still have plenty of scent left in them.

Glad you're feeling better, Nas!

I've been fiddling around with various project "to-do's" - not accomplishing a lot, but getting things ready for the next steps. Did a little online window shopping toward the items I need to purchase this week. After that, I think I'll hope for a stretch of rainy days so I can stay indoors and do the necessary work! LOL.

Back at it...

A quick note...
I called Laura last evening to tell her about her sister, Jan, and she said she would get in touch with-her. I imagine she will call her but not talk too long. Jan's voice and breath are very compromised. I am praying she can overcome this health issue soon. It has been such a long 'haul'.

I have been writing since early morning and took time out only for breakfast and a small lunch.
I believe I have eight pages completed and am going back after this note..

Nas, it is good to hear that you are getting stronger every day...

Elsie, I sympathize. I never had a pet dog, only a dear outdoor cat, yet I can feel your sadness.. Be strong..

I will leave you now and catch up tomorrow...

Oh, Maureen, you are so kind to take your friend home with you and help her so very much. You are special.

Lee, watch those tootsies! ..I'm so glad the doctor could help the painful feet so.greatly. We sure need them to be healthy.

Till later.......Doris emoticon

Many thanks for the thoughts and prayers....they are holding me today

Stripped the bed this morning and vacuumed 3 rooms just to keep busy...

Will soon be going with Maria for the afternoon/evening so won't be sitting here thinking and/or crying.

Have any of you put fabric softener sheets under your fitted sheets and in your pillow case covers? Sure does make the bed smell nice. The ones I use are just the cheap ones from Dollar Tree.

Take care

Elsie I am so sorry about DJ. Know you did the right thing but heartbreaking.

And Doris. I know how worried you must be about your "girls" and your son's headaches.
Hope they resolve the blood clot problem with Jan!

Maureen so glad you had such a good weekend.

Frances you were missed, but we also need to take the time for ourselves when needed.
Everyone here understands we have lives to live and so happy when anyone leaves and comes back, or just takes a day to rest and appears again. emoticon

Dot have you been getting the heavy rains in the afternoon. We will have them all week.
I do my thing in a.m. if I can. Today it was happy feet (podiatrist) Bless him he put pads on my orthotics in just the right spot to take pressure away from balls of feet. Heaven.

Jean, hope all is going well with you.

Sue do hope you are much better too.

Mary, I was much younger during my DH's long illness so I know you are going through much stress. Do take care of yourself. You know you are both in prayers.

NAS so glad you took control and are feeling better. Try not to overdo, but good for you!

Can anyone tell me about Facetime on the cell phone. I decided to upgrade when the phone I want comes in and she said I will have that. I know my granddaughter does (or think so) so maybe Ben will be able to know better who I am.

Hope all have good days today.

Hugs,

Mary, yes we were very lucky not to have walkers. DH was still walking on his own, still driving his car daily until the last week when he was too sick to get out. I think he drove to get chemo that week and I drove back. He was never on oxygen so other than the cancer he lived a pretty normal life and was still involved in his farm and car lot. He stayed pretty close to home on chemo weeks and the chemo made him so sick.

Yesterday a friend named Pat was in Oklahoma from California at her sister's home 35 miles from here. Neither of them have a car. She used to live in my small town so I drove down and got Pat early yesterday morning and brought her home with me. Her sister could not come along. Pat spent the day with me and visiting neighbors. She still has a house here full of everything and we went there looking for stuff. No AC and we got too hot so quit looking for quilt blocks that she said were in a box. And we could not find them nor the family Bible. We went to the local cafe at noon and saw several friends and some of them even came to the house and visited. Then yesterday evening I took her back but we stopped on the way to visit with another lady. Pat said, "Oh, I would like to see Velma" We were driving by Velma's house so we stopped and visited a short time before finishing our trip to take Pat back to her sister's house. Then I had to drive home tired by myself. I had a great day.

Good morning! I never got here, yesterday, what with everything to do, and then I was tired by the time I got in from knitting group. The morning fog has lifted and the temperature is around 70 now (going into high 80s) so Kilean and I will have our walk shortly.

Belated Happy Birthday, Iris! emoticon

Elsie, I'm sorry about DJ. It's hard to lose a pet, but he'll be waiting at the next door for you. emoticon

Good news for Laura, Doris! And now we'll pray for a good report for Jan, as well.

Mary, you are having a difficult time of it. Do you have anyone coming in to help out? There are many agencies that provide drop-in care, or perhaps a friend or neighbor might come by to give you breaks. I'm sure Arell will continue to improve as you are taking such good care of him. emoticon

Maureen, it's nice you had a good weekend. Were you at a car show? I saw several antique cars around town on Saturday, so there must have been one around here. I love the old, high "boxy" cars with running boards and rumble seats!

Nas, it's good you recognize a need to change your routine. Listen to what your body tells you and take care of yourself. You are progressing so well.

I need to get started on Ahnu's sweater today - the same pattern as Kilean's, but in a larger size and different colors. Then, I plan to pick up an overhead projector so I can sketch out the play mat design. The friend who told me about this explained that she actually stitched her roads out of fabric, but I think I'm going to stick with fabric paints. I have enough sewing and quilting to do and will welcome different tasks for this.

Here's wishing each of you a good day, doing whatever makes you happy and healthy.

When I think about the animals we lose. I really loved all of ours and they were so much company but they age so quickly we all end up losing them now at our age do not need any more to take care and that is ok just thankful I got to enjoy then when I did,
It did rain last night and looks cloudy this morning so may have more , I guess the farmers and trees need this rain so we will just stay in today,
I need to finish getting dressed and see if I can find something I want to do today

Elsie sorry about your dog. Hailey turns 7 in Dec. but has arthritis in one of the back legs.
When she jumps on the couch she wines and when she jumps off. We are giving her arthritic pills but they don't stop the pain. I am going to call vet about buffin. She also has that kidney situation we are watching, from the time we almost lost her because of her smelling some wild animal's urine. I don't know how long we will have her, but I think she is too young for arthritis. She lays around the house a lot now, and sometimes will get up to roll her ball.
I guess she is starting to get old. I hope this is the last dog as it is too much for me to take when they leave you. We had 7 dogs and 3 cats and Hailey will make 8. We also had birds, rabbit and fish when my son was growing up.

Well, yesterday, I changed beds and washed towels, clothes and sheets till about 3 pm.
So today, I think I am going to take it a little slow as I was tired.

Mani, when I get up at 5am and take Tyneol and put onBG, the pain seems to subside all day so I can get some stuff done. I don't know what I will do when it stops working with these.
Probably have to get stronger stuff. I have problems sleeping on shoulders because I can't sleep on my back. So used to all these years on sides. So now, I try the left side only as the right shoulder is the worst for pain.

We are going to 92 Wed and today 89. I wanted to cut hair yesterday but they were closed so hoping I can do it today. Then I am staying put with this heat.

Market basket, where we shop, as prices are low, are having a stand off about a Ceo they want back. He is for the poor and the other is for the rich. The one they have now wants to up the prices and make more money. The one they had, that the employees and senators and mayors, etc. are trying to get back always kept prices low. Too many people greedy in this world. Then there is there plane that got shot down and no acces to get bodies because of the Russians not letting them in. The world is going crazy and soon God will destroy it.

Dear Elsie, I know your pain. We had to have Abby put to sleep about four weeks ago. Arell was at home on a four hour leave that day, and one of our neighbors went with us. She put Abby in the car and carried her into the vet's office for us. I shed no tears because if I had started I would still be crying. This is too much; if I ever start crying I won't be able to stop.
Arell still gets so confused. He sleeps so much he does not know how to tell morning from evening. He came to the table to eat supper tonight and wondered why we were eating so early. He thought it was morning. He does not eat much. I have some ensure here for him and he decided today to try a yogurt. If I ask him what flavor he wants he gets angry because he has to make a decision. After trying for a long time to not have salty things in the house, now I am looking for things with a higher sodium level because I think his sodium is still low.
Marlene, I still do not know how you did it. Of course, you and your DH were not both using walkers. We both have to be very careful not to trip on the cord to his oxygen compressor. The machine is in his bedroom and he is usually in his lift chair in the T.V. room.
Enough with that!
I am happy that most of you are well and healthy. Camey, I hope your house and car insurance claims are soon resolved, as well as Mattie Sue's computer. I bought a new laptop on Saturday, at Walmart. Virginia bought the same one but she is going to talk to the IT man at her work place to see if it is any good. At $229.00 we don't expect too much. I only bought it so Arell could play Solitaire on it. I also found some new sheets at WallyWorld, they are kind of a maroon. Something different.
My two programs are both over, and I think I will head for bed. Arell slipped out of his chair this morning about 2:00 and it was 3:00 by the time I was back in bed. It did not take long to get back to sleep. I am glad we live in a small town with a great 911 service. It only took them about 5 minutes to get here.
Good night, all my dear friends.

Oh Elsie! So sorry about DJ know you will miss him terrible. I miss my sons little dog Gizmo. You will miss DJ greeting you when you come home. Gizmo and Bubba would sit at the door and howl whenever one of us put the key in the door. Gizmo started it because we haven't heard it since he died. They only lived with me a little over a year and were not my dogs but it is so hard not to get attached. Bubba is old and blind - have a feeling he will not be around much longer...Will be praying for you, lean on the Lord...he is very close to you now and feels your sadness and pain.

God Bless, hugs and blessings,
Dot

Iris... interesting what Cassy is doing... the amaranth yatra is a tough trek....good for the gal...Kashmir is a lovely place, hope she gets to stay in a house boat on the picturesque Dal lake...Gulmarg, sonmarg and pahalgam for her to do.... Kashmir was DH's & my favourite summer destination till our bones couldn't deal with the low temps. My last visit there was a family vacation in 2005....and the violence hasn't encouraged us in our advanced years to take the risk.

Elsie, my thoughts and prayers with you....for sure DJ is in a better place....happy & jumping again.....

Doris special prayers for Dear Jan....this too shall pass dear friend.

Have a lovely Tuesday

I had to take DJ in to the vet this afternoon......he is now pain free and able to run. jump. and play again.

The vet he knows and loves (who has taken care of him for 10 years) is off tomorrow and I didn't want someone who he didn't know to be with him on his final journey. He collapsed when he got into the office so they had to carry him back. Dr. McNutt was one of the ones that carried him. My tears are free flowing and my house is empty and lonesome.

Daughter Maria and granddaughters Samantha and Veronica went with me. All came this morning to say good by to him. Now he is back with Dad.

Much thanks for all the prayers as they are the only thing holding me right now.

I will be gone tomorrow afternoon so won't be sitting here all day crying. The hardest part will be coming back in and not having him meeting me at the door.


Happy Birthday to Iris

Goodness we had rain for about an hour need it too .I guess it will help the flowers and trees and veggies for the farmers ,
Vicki called she had to go to the dentist so he is sending her to some other oral surgeon and hope it all works out. She has a golden mouth from all we had done to her teeth growing up spacers and a dentist who specialized in children so that is why I call her mouth golden ,
I want to check and see how much rain we had . be back later

Hi,
I wrote only about four pages but now am beyond the terrible lost pages...Oh, that was a scare!
I did work at this novel all afternoon, checking my back pages and editing...my ankles will be swollen again as I sit here too long.....

I must check in with daughter Jan, as she must think I disappeared for my computer was shut down for so long. .I'll give her a quick note now..

Again happy evening....Doris

Oh, I just got a call from Jan in Wisconsin. She had to be put in ICU on last Wednesday when they found blood clots in her lung. She was released from a regular room on Saturday and just wanted me to know about all of this..Oh, my poor baby.!!! .She must have been doing too much and now is having complete bed rest again. Al will take her to the doctor for more tests this Wednesday... What can I say... but please pray for her. Thank you.... Doris

Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I probably don't deserve the greetings as I haven't been too good with checking when you all have birthday celebrations.

Mani, I cannot understand it when medical practitioners have an attitude. I too have sought more compassionate treatment from time to time.

So now on to the travels in India. The trek continues on to the Valley of Flowers National Park. I have been reading about the arduous trip this is. Cassy feels she can manage it because she managed the Armarnath Yatri trek and was there when there was a problem at the camp, I am getting quite an education about India. I'm too old to do more than read about all the things she is experiencing. I will admit that I am more than a little concerned.

The Grandchildren in Israel report that things have not been too bad for them. DGS has had to go to a shelter a couple of times and DGD not at all. Frankly, I will be happy when they all come home.

Have a good day all, Iris

Mel, Congrats on loosing the weight gained on vacation...it really is a struggle to loose those pounds. We just have to keep on keeping on ~ Viv would say KOKO! That's all I do. Pulling for you!

Helen...have a great day!

Doris that was a reasonable amount to get your special watch fixed. Hope you get some of your pages written today.

Mani glad your back is better. Sorry about the Chiropractor having an attitude. Do hope the next one has a much better attitude and treats you right and gets you all straightened out.

God Bless everyone,
Dot

Hi everyone,

Haven't posted for a couple of days....yes my back is feeling much better & went to the Chiropractor today & was awfully disappointed by his attitude...will be seeing another Chiropractor in Allepey another town, 2 hours away.

Let's start with the Birthday gal..... emoticon Iris....wish you many many more healthy & happy birthdays

Mel congrats on the weight loss... and my physiotherapist told me the same thing to avoid getting stiff, get up and move around for every hour you sit....

Marlene that's great news....the arrival of another great-grand-child....can't with to know if its a girl or a boy.

Doris Adela is such a special child her abilities are truly awe inspiring... God Bless the child.
Yay for the great news on Laura's front and also Jan's slow & steady recovery....

Nas Beta hope you feel better soon....and hope your physio therapy sessions are helping...

Oh yes Leona...God Save you from the Indian Accents....In India the accents amount to an absolute comedy of errors the most pronounced ones being Punjabi, Gujarati, Bengali & Malayalee(that's what I speak)....

Camey all the best with the repair work....guess your DGC kept you so busy that you didn't have the time to think of your aches & pains....

Dot and Lee both you ladies actually got the rest you deserved....Dot you would have been exhausted greeting and ushering in church...

Have a blessed new week all....

Hugs, Prayers & Blessings

I will I pay for that and they did say replace not pro-rate so I think with it in writing they are not gonna be a pain. Thank goodness I can read. I am sure they do that to everyone on the outside chance some one will except and think that is all they will get.
My # 1 daughter lost her 2 times and the second time just mailed her a check with out arguing. She did warn me about it .
I can not for the life of me figure out why they even try .
With that said I will go look around in the kitchen maybe I will be inspired to make a wonderful meal Haha fat chance

Hello.
First thing...HAPPY BIRTHDAY IRIS.. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I do hope your day is special and all you wish it to be.

Next, thank you good people for your comments on my 'girls...Yes it makes this mother's heart glad when I hear good news.

Dot, I just returned from the jewelers. He did put a battery in my 'play' watch and so I have one on my wrist as I write. The very fine watch will be repaired in about a week and the stem replaced plus battery for about $40.00....I have had that watch for about 17 years, a very special gift from my eldest grand daughter, Adrienne and I treasure it...If it can be repaired for that amount, I will be a happy camper, so to speak. Thanks for the comment.

I was very lazy yesterday, perhaps due to my special company on Saturday and did not do much.
I watched an old movie and ??? the day went by..

Today we have a very humid cloud cover day with occasional rain..It was not fun to be out.
I will write all afternoon after a small lunch and try to make up for the days lost..

I greet all of my friends , Dot, Nas, Mani, Fran, Jean, Lee, Mel, Iris, Barb, Sue, Nora, Camey, Marlene, Kirby, Leona, Helen, Mary, Kathy and Mickey etc etc, Oh, who did I forget? and also our new persons that I am not well acquainted with as yet.. St Bernard? . and do.forgive me for not remembering all of the names.!..

I will get busy now on my writing..It is calling me...Love to all, Doris emoticon

Drum Roll!!! I lost my vacation weight. Now hopeful I can continue to go downward. What a struggle, but I will not give up.

Happy Birthday Iris. emoticon Hope you are having a great day celebrating in style.

Nasfkab, I was tired yesterday, but hopefully will do better today.

Mattie, give it to them. Get as much $$$ as you can.

Sue, Hope you continue to feel better today and forever.

Camey, those repair men keep you busy. Repair one thing and break another.

Barbara, that was funny as I could imagine you sitting on the porch talking to the chipmunk.

This is my page of one liners.

Pray you all have a great day. Got to go walk for my 10 minutes as I have been on the computer for my one hour.

Good Morning All,

Nas so sorry you are tired today. I woke up at 5:30am this morning and couldn't get back to sleep - around 7:30am got very tired and went back to bed...I always take Monday off nothing planned. Would you believe I slept until 11:30am. Haven't really woken up fully. How did it go with the Physiotherapist _ did she/he help you? Hope so, you are still in my prayers.

Doris we do miss you when you are not here. Glad to see your post and to hear the wonderful news of Laura and Jan. Will continue to keep them in my prayers. Jeans Birthday is on Wednesday. The Birthday girl today is Iris. Hope you are able to inexpensively get your watched fixed. I enjoyed hearing about Adela ~ what a bright little girl she is.

Happy to see you post St. Bernard ~ several years ago the team adopted a suggestion of putting our first name, state, and birthday on our message before our quote. This was a big help for our memories. Thanks for doing that for us old folk! Being a church librarian is a wonderful ministry to the congregation. Know you must enjoy doing that.

Leona, Lovely your son put in the AC for you...Now you have it when you need it.

Barbara, One of my favorite things to do when I went to the mountains in NC every summer was to sit on the big porch and chat with the chipmunks and the birds. I don't even have a porch here to sit on. Wow! what a life you have. Glad you had lots of company this week.

Mattie stand your ground with the Electric Co. They will try to have you accept their offers. Hope you got your walk in today.

All for now think I am caught up now.
Hugs and Blessings to all,
Dot

PS: Hi Lee...you snuck in before me ~ so glad you are relaxing. Love you,
Dot

I do hope you have a wonderful day. So glad to hear your GKS are ok. Been concerned.

Sue, sorry you were under the weather and glad you are better. Good way to work out the pet sitting. Good friends are to be cherished.

Barbara how neat that you "talk to the animals". I am picturing it. I think they are not afraid of you as you tell us you are small. lol

Mani, I hope your back is better.

Sorry you are tired Nas. Do you suppose it is because of your first outings. Hope better.

Sounds like you had a busy day yesterday Doris.

I was absolutely lazy.

Have a good Monday all.

Sorry I haven't been here for a couple of days, I was a bit under the weather. Got all ready for church yesterday morning and got down the street turned around and came back home. Feeling better today, I went to the senior center with my friend and walked for an hour on the track. I'll miss her when she goes on vacation next week but I will be caring for her four Shih Tzus so that should keep me busy. Actually, we were supposed to be on vacation at the same time, both of us going to Cape Cod but our mutual dog sitter canceled out on us so we split our time and will care for each other's pets. Cheaper and we are both comfortable with the arrangement.

Still waiting for someone to do siding, may have to do one side of house. Not sure if ins will pay as quote was in for just puttng back falling siding. Now, they say maybe it won't go back and they can not match a piece that will and need to do the whole side. Then when the bull dozer came in he broke the tip of the driveway. We dont go up that far but still I don't think they plan to fix it.

I don't know when I was last here. I have been so dog gone busy.

We had priest from India talking at church yesterday. You could not understand one word he said. It made church very long. I thought he would never stop talking. Everyone said they could not understand him. Very thick axcent.

My GS's musicals were amazing. Those kids WOW. Now for Hairspray on the 7th.

I guess this weekend was for company. They just kept coming. I didn't get a thing done. Funny how it happens. You go for weeks without any company and then they all come at once.

I need to cut my hair and DH's. Seems our hair grows so fast.

It was so cute. A little chipmunk was sitting on the porch with me. When I talked seemed he recognized my voice. He must live close to our house. He stayed for quite a while. Then DH came out and he ran off.

That's my exciting life. Hugs Barbara

Good morning all.

Yesterday I had a long day but got a lot accomplished. I got up this morning at 5:30 AM so should have time to read and post messages today.

Doris- wonderful news on Laura.

Mel- good idea on the walking. I have not walked much lately and today the treadmill is calling.

Today will be hot and humid. My husband cannot take the heat because of his disease so he will be inside today. I am always thankful our oldest son put in AC for us.

Have a good day and take care.

It did rain at last it was much needed and now the sun is out very bright . I guess tomorrow will start off as a hot day we shall see what gives with this weather. When it is dry it is awful and then it just pours rain and gets a every thing good and wet .
got a slow week coming up not even sure what tomorrow holds I had it planned then got a monkey wrench thrown into it.
be back

Sunday afternoon..
Church was very nice and I came right home after buying the Sunday paper. I read it but the news is not very uplifting and so I then dozed a bit and made a small breakfast. I was up at five-thirty this morning and felt sleepy most of the late morning.

Lee, I do back up on travel drive, but had not done it for the last 92 pages..I will be using it every time I write now..It certainly was a scare!!!

I really had a wonderful day with Adela, now eight, her mama, Ali and dad, Steven. I made his favorite food for him, especially, that is Lasagne and sent some home with him. I also had a huge fruit platter as I know Adela can have some of that. Her mother brought her food as it is a very special, restricted diet, of course. They stayed for over four hours in all and I loved every moment. I gave Adela the complete tea set that I had as a child along with other gifts. It is at least eighty years old. It was a prewar Japan set and was complete with teapot, creamer, sugar bowl, plates and cups and saucers. She truly loved it and said she would have tea parties with her dolls.
She read to me from the Fairy book that I gave to her last birthday and if I am any judge it is at the fifth grade level . It is written in both cursive and print and she can read all of it easily. In fact she reads aloud so rapidly that I can barely keep up. She is only about three feet tall and does not show any signs of growth right now..Her mind is so sharp, however, that she will be able to do anything in this world she wants to do.
Perhaps many do not know that Adela has Turner's Syndrome as well as an X9 Chromosome problem, she is the only one in many millions of children with this situation. We nearly lost her at three years old when she was in intensive care for months... Her parents are very caring and doing everything to advance her learning. She is studying French along with her regular studies in her home school curriculum ..Ali was a third grade teacher before Adela was born. She is now 35 and my youngest grandchild.

I too have Jean's birthday as the 23rd and I believe that is Wednesday., Dot

My watch stem broke on the wonderful watch I wear daily and so will be taking it to the jewelery store tomorrow. I so hope it is not going to be a terribly expensive charge. I am sure they will probably have to send it off somewhere to be fixed.

Now I will break my rule and write a few pages of the novel to get back in the 'groove'. I never write on Sunday but this one time will be needed.

I spoke with Cindy in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and they are now without company. It was reaching 78 there today and lovely. Carlos continues to have the headaches, but the solitude now should be nice..I picked their garden again Friday morning and gave lovely tomatoes to both my neighbor, Ali and made part of my pasta sauce with many others. I should have zucchini soon.
Mario and family will be home tomorrow evening and he too can pick the garden this week.

Well, I don't know if I was missed, but you have me to contend with now again....HA!
Love to all... Doris

P.S. I forgot to tell my my GOOD NEWS...On Tuesday my daughter Laura was given the wonderful news that her tumors are growing at such a slow rate that Anderson MD in Texas, told her to come back in 6 months to check on them again. She was "over the moon' so to speak for the reprieve..She will have a biopsy of the neck cancer there in California in the next weeks as they did not want to hold her for that study...What a relief.
Jan continues to make very slow and steady improvement from her illness and I will write to her tomorrow....D

Hi Everyone,

Have to set everyone straight...I checked the Birthday List. Jean's Birthday is not until the 23rd unless the list is not correct. I put it on a sticky note on my computer. Iris has a birthday tomorrow 2lst. Mary Lou has a birthday 24th and MaryB. has a birthday the 29th. Then we start August Birthdays. Marlene has posted the year birthday list under Anyone Over 70. Just thought you would all like to know before anymore of us wish Jean a Happy Birthday early and forget all about Iris...lol

Had a great morning at church. The people kept coming and coming ~ never sure who is new or not. Just greeted all with a big welcome smile and hand shake, also give them a bulletin. Got many hugs from those I do know. This morning some old members that I had not seen in a while returned. I really love out Minister of Music...he has done an outstanding job with the choir.

All for now will read the posts and will be back later...
hugs and Blessings,
Dot

I don't make the bread and pickles for myself. They are for my son and some of them will be when I have company. I like them but seldom eat them. They are really easy to make.

This evening I am going to a cookout before going to church. DGD wants to reveal if it is a girl or boy that she is carrying. Blue cake for boy, pink cake if it is a girl. She is not telling until then. First grand child of her DH's and his mother and dad are so excited.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your interests, but also to the interests of others.

I decided to cook on the grill and got my meat ready and it is defrosting. Wouldn't you know it looks like rain now after about an hour if not today tomorrow and maybe it will hold off until later in the evening. I always pick the wrong time to do something .
Or we may just have the salad that would be good for both of us .
guess I better go do something

Happy Birthday Jean. May you have many more!!! emoticon Hope you are being wined and dined in style.

Doris, hopefully you have the book backed up now. That was scary!! That reminds me that I need to back up my computer. That is my goal today.

Elsie, loved your sayings. Now if I can just remember them when I want to share.
So sorry to hear about DJ. I am sure you have wonderful memories and he will be missed.

Iris, sad losing young friends.
I have gotten so I don't watch the news. I do read the news on my iPhone. I just don't
like all the graphic pictures.

Frances, my mouth waters with the sound of a fresh tomato. The heat got mine, so guess I will wait till I go back to WI in Sept and have a tomato then.

Mickey, was it a baseball game you went to in Boston? The Diamonds won their game yesterday by at least 7 pts. So today at Taco Bell, they will be offering the Diamondback special - 3 free tacos with the purchase of a large drink.
Hope your team won and you had a nice trip.

Yesterday, I read that it is good to get up every hour and walk for 10 minutes. So that is what I did yesterday. If I was sitting for an hour, I got up and walked around the house from room to room for 10 minutes.

Time to get ready for church.

Oops! It has been a few days since I have been here. I did read all the posts down to the end of this page. I did not make notes as too many to respond to, but my prayers go out for all of you and your individual needs.

I did want to respond to Iris and thank her for the news of Sam. I fell in love with her when we were voting for her several years ago. I had been to the site, Iris, and she is truly a winner!

Lee, Betty was at the beach and her last post on FB was she was on her last day before returning home. As you know, returning from vacation brings with it a lot of laundry and replacing things used for vacation.

We have had two full days of rain! Not a ray of sunshine both days. Today, it looks as if it might rain again. I did nothing but read both days.

I have been somewhat busy as my daughters have begun birthday dinners, etc. early. Lisa took me to see "Tammy". I loved it. Melissa McCarthy is a super comedy actress.

Hugs emoticon

Jean
