Hi Everyone, I had a busy weekend. emoticon

My son had his friend over and we planned on walking in the Parks. emoticon

On Friday, we went to Davidson Park which has a nice creek to walk along with lots of ups and downs and roots and steps to climb on.
I ate Breakfast late at home and my son and his Friend bought sandwiches to eat at the picnic table.
For Lunch we went to Farrington Lake and Bicentenial Park. It has a nice trail and a walk along the Lake. I flelt like I did really good walking even though I could not keep up with them. emoticon

On Saturday, we went to Thompson Park which has a Lake, Trails in the Woods, A giant hill to climb and the best part, a zoo.

I really enjoyed the zoo which had deer, goats, pot-bellied pigs, rabbits, also hens, roosters, ducks, geese, turkeys, and a beautiful peacock and an Emu. emoticon

My son and his friend did so well but I walked until I couldn't walk anymore and had to sit down. I think I did really good. My legs really hurt and I could feel every muscle screaming in my thighs, butt, calves and even my feet! emoticon

I took aleve, Move free and a pill for leg cramps and now, many hours later, my legs feel normal again. emoticon

My weight stayed the same this weekend. It gets harder to lose as you get closer to your goal. I need to lose at least another 10 pounds and they say the last 10 are the hardest.

I also have my daughter's dog for the week so also walked the dog several times a day in the yard. emoticon

Hi Camey, I agree, walking is the best. We always took walking vacations where we parked the car at the Hotel and walked everywhere. We ate whatever we wanted for Breakfast and Dinner, had a little snack in the afternoon, I always ate a piece of fruit in the room before bed and never gained weight on vacations.

Hi Mel, You are right about not being able to afford the dentist when we were children. I remember having teeth drilled without novacane because my parents couldn't afford it. I was afraid of the dentist. Later when I got older and told the dentist he couldn't believe it. Now I am not afraid anymore and happy my teeth are good.

Hi Lee, Good for you, flossing twice a day. The more you do it, the easier it becomes to do and the faster you can get that space between your teeth. I guess some bone loss must be expected as we age. But sounds like you are on the right track!

Just stopping in to say hi.

Nothing much is new. I am slowly losing a pound I gained last week.

I am going to work on genealogy today. I did some research for a friend and I think he will be surprised on what I found on his family. He thought his gg grandfather changed his last name as he had a strange middle name. He did not change his name as the middle name was his's ggg grandmother's maiden name.
I also downloaded my Ancestry DNA onto Gedmatch. Will research that site and see if I make any more connections.
A relaxing way to spend Sunday.

Good morning everyone,

Hot and humid so all cooped up inside today...I did get to church and grocery....We are still waiting for our little Gus to arrive in the world. Ellen's doc says if she doesn't deliver by Tuesday he will induce...He going to be an independent little fellow.

I am been enjoying watching the olympic trials on TV..Watched the specatular diving yesterday and more will be on this evening. They are all so good it is ashamed they can't all make the team.

Enjoy your Sunday...Smiles, Betty :)

Lee I bet it is allergies because dh and I cough a lot and have mucus, nose gets blocked too.

Mel, I am going to read the book on my bike. It makes the time go faster. Did you send me the .7 yesterday. When we went out to eat, with the freebie we got potato skins and Buffalo wings. I had two skins and 4 wings, but only put on .7 which I am going to get rid of today.

Dixie I am forever losing what I type, on here, on my emails, and have to find I have to restart a lot. Maybe the computers we have are dying.

Mary Lou it is not easy to lose weight. You have to be able to give up stuff you love and not touch it. I have a system now. Breakfast is oatmeal, nuts, and sometimes Cheerio. Lunch is the patty with veggies, chicken with veggies, meatloaf with veggies, soup, eggplant, stuffed shells, etc. But then I do not have supper. I have either watermelon with a small raisin bagel, or ice cream with the bagel and I drink two bottles of water a day plus two glasses with the Vit D and myBP.

Good morning everyone - another sunny dry day. Will have to water a few plants today as they see no rain in sight until Tuesday.

Had fun walking around the flea market yesterday. As I have mentioned in the past - I give out about 16 Christmas ornaments to kids every year - so I was on the lookout for those. Found a few different ornaments that I was to get for $1-2 each. Also found a Hummel I liked and was able to get it at a reasonable price. Later I went grocery shopping and then since my DH is not here, I took a friend to a lobster-fest last night. We had gotten complimentary tickets and I didn't want them to go to waste! It was pure indulgence!!!

Guess I read the Amazon letter incorrectly about only using the credit on ebooks. Thanks for the clarification.

A Blessed Sunday-

Good Sunday Morning.

MaryLou I am so sorry to hear about your SS Friend's son. What a painful life he had as she must have had emotionally.

Mel I peeked in last night and couldn't post as was laughing so hard at your note about my reference to Barb's "dog" Barb I hope you too are laughing as I did say puppy. emoticon
Don't think I'll touch that one any further.

I am going to church today despite the still coughing. No fever and beginning to think allergies are also setting in. Today is last day of antibiotics so will see.

What a mess with your car Doris. Hold firm and let them know you've already paid $700 for their mistakes.
Frances...glad you got in a me day that you enjoyed. Hope today is another one.

Nas so glad you are with your grands and having such a great time.

Another hot one today. We had heat index of 103 yesterday and 105 for Thurs and Fri. We are getting the afternoon rain tho. while steamy at least not dried out.

Have a blessed and peaceful Sunday everyone!
Hugs,
Lee

Very warm here today. A/C man was here late this afternoon. It is working for now ,but will wait till Monday to make sure it is working properly. As usual regular laundry day and changing beds and such. DH went to Wasaga Beach for the Fun Run Car Show by himself.
I would have needed a bucket of sun screen so I decided to stay in the shade and not get sunburnt. I think maybe I will "Ditto" Mel's post as she has covered things so nicely today.
Will have to watch the late news about all the fires. Even in our area things are so dry that Fire Warnings are very high. NO Campfires and if small ones are set make sure no embers left when put out. Prayers for all as always. Good Night and God Bless Sweet Dreams emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Maureen

Pretty much been a do nothing day. I did water plants outside but that did not take long. I made a cinnamon roll cake for the reunion tomorrow and will get up early in the morning to make a zucchini casserole. That is enough for one person to take, right?? My DD is going, too so she will make some kind of dishes. Always too much food. Two reunions in August and one in October. Always about eating. The one in October is an all school reunion and it is catered.

Off to bed a little early. Maybe I will get more sleep tonight..

I'm very late - and I'm not sure if I was here yesterday either... Today has been a "me" day and I not only lolled around this morning, but I went out for lunch and a few quick errands, then decided I would have a Saturday night "at home!"

I'm working on genealogy records - just connected with a "new" cousin who is just beginning to trace her family tree, so I've been trying to help her out a bit too.

I think I had something to say when I signed on, but now my mind has flittered elsewhere. Ah well, if it was important it'll come back to me later.

Doris, maybe you could charge them rent for keeping your car so long. emoticon

Nas, hope you are enjoying being waited on and getting a cook.

MaryLou, that is sad about your SS teacher's son. It is so hard losing children.
Will put her in my prayers.

Camey, sounds like a good book. Enjoy.

Kathy, every cent helps when making a purchase.

Lee, I got a laugh as I read your message wrong. I thought you said to Barb, "hope your bra problems is solved. So sorry to hear about your little cup" (instead it was pup)
Mind plays mean tricks when we don't pay attention.

Sue, where did date night end up. Hope it was a great treat.

Dot, I am sure Chris will help you find some books with your $30.

Mickey, the rebates at Amazon is for anything. It is like a gift card added to your account.
I purchase a hair product this morning and used some of the money from the rebate.

Betty, would love to open my doors. But, I am sure it would be like opening a furnace door.
So I keep doors and shades all pulled during the hot weather.
It must pay off as I receive my power bill today and it was only $120.00 for June.

Maureen, hope you have fans to help you stay cool while you wait for parts.

Elsie, I also am having a blah day. I have to push myself to get anything done. I am doing the wash. I also dusted and cleaned the bathroom. Now, I need to get the energy to vacuum and mop the floors. Might be doing that at midnight tonight.

Marlene, I am sure the scholarship will help pay for the college books, as they are very expensive.

Barb, sorry to hear about the sick dog. I hope she is not suffering.

Guess, I will get off from here and go watch the local news to see who shot who today.

Hi, everybody. Been MIA as my ds was here for four days, plus i still have my cold. I guess like everyone says, summer colds are the worst. Still can't smell or taste, except the taste of sweetness. Still coughing, but not nearly as much; I have another dr. appt Monday.

Helen, my apologies for missing your birthday.Good to hear you enjoyed many phone calls from friends. Did I tell you my sis's name is Helen also?

Francis, have a safe trip to NY and so nice you will be able to enjoy more of your family and grandchildren.

Camey, congrats on your weight loss and getting down to goal. Not many of us can say that. You will be our inspiration.

I think I missed out on "first home you can remember". I have a very dim memory (I was about 3, I think) and we moved into an appt that when I flushed the toilet, it over-flowed and scared me so badly that I wouldn't flush a toilet for the longest time without getting preparedn to run! Even in school, I would get all ready to run before I flushed and got out the door fast. Then I held my breath while washing my hands for fear I would see water running out from under the stall door! The next memory was much better; my older db brought home an old child's wicker chair for me that he found in an abandoned house. When I told him about that memory years and years later, he couldn't even remember it. He was 8 years older than me. It was during he recession years, and toys were scarce for us and treasured, even if used.

Such sad news I learned; my SS teacher's 54 year old son died of cancer Saturday. The funeral is Monday, and I would like to go, but unsure. Maybe if I just go and sit in the back of the church and don't mingle. If I feel a cough coming on I could get up and leave. I will see. He has had poor health all his life. Kidneys failed and she donated a kidney to him, but it was rejected. He received an other one but his health has always been bad. She is 80 years old and she has been tube-feeding and doing the hospice care for him at home; that was his wish. She is small in stature, but strong in faith and always, always so responsible. An admirable woman and a widow like so many our age. I know she would appreciate prayers.

Now I will finish a card for her and get it in the mail.

Mary Lou

We went out to lunch and had a freebie. I wanted the stuffed mushrooms but the restaurant discontinued them. The 99 restaurant does that and brings them back in the winter. Well, not much of a choice for me as didn't like anything except the buffalo chicken wings and potato skins, so we got that. I had two skins and 3 small wings and salad. So we will see what happens with the weight. Tonight dh wants only apple and tea. I may just have watermelon.
Just can't make a habit of this for sure. Tomorrow, I may be sorry. Lee it is hard loosing as you well know, but sometimes, you just need to have something after being careful.

It is 2.32 pm and getting bored. I played a few games. Went in and did any mail, so maybe I will read. Reading First Lady and so far it is good. It is about a president that got short and a VP that asked his wife to still be his first lady. She does not want the job but does take it and she disguises herself as an old woman and goes in the group touring the white house until she is out of the white house. Then she buys a car and goes shopping for a new wig and clothes.
So far it is interesting.

Have a good hard rain storm right now so this will be short as once thunder will shut down.

Congrats on the weight loss Camey!

Barb hope your bra problems is solved. So sorry to here about your little pup.

Mel, I put off shopping yesterday and know what you mean. Nice to pretty much be able to do that. For instance I took a short nap after shopping today. Hmmm thinking salad for lunch
Glad to hear Drew is settled down for now, poor thin..

Mickey sounds like a fun outing. B & N lets you buy other than Ebooks but did buy some children's books sent here for Ben for Chirstmas and/or when he and family come for my Ben fix in July (hopefully)

Frances, do you have today off for a "me" day?

Dot I filled my tank this a.m. How luck I was to pull right in to a spot at Sam's. (cheapest gas here and I get a 5% rebate on gas for this year in Febr of next year.

Rain stopped already and that doesn't make me too unhappy as we had enough for now.

Terrible about fires in California and floods in West Virginia.

I looked at after market trading last night and it went back up a small percentage. A start.

Hugs all,

I thought I checked in last night but I guess I was wrong.
It is a damp muggy Saturday morning here but I got up early and got all my chores done, even got the floors steamed so it is about time for someone to spill something or the dog to have an accident.

Kathy go on the Amazon site and check your gift card balance, if you have a rebate it will be there.

I think I will have my lunch and get a shower, the rest of the day is mine and it is date night so no cooking for me today.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Awoke this morning to l3l and lost .5. I sure was happy. Eating a very low meal at night works. You can not work off calories at night so best to eat your big meal in the afternoon.
So far it is working. Going out for lunch and want to get a salad and stuffed mushrooms so I know they will put on some calories with the stuffing. Big decision because I hate to see it go up instead of down. But I have been good and will see how much it goes up. Just eating the mushroom would not give much calories, but the stuffing is the best part. LoL

Mel so glad you lost those lbs. Didn't want you to get the ones I lost.

Hope anyone having a birthday has a happy one.

Well, off to do my bike. Had breakfast and did my other exercise. I don't want to get too low as just bought some tops and want to be able to get into them.

Good morning,

Enjoy your day Mickey and thanks for reminding me to check my gas gage last time I looked it was 1/4 tank and I can't remember when I last looked. The flea market and tag sale sound like a fun trip have fun.

Have made no plans today. Have wash for Chris to do so may get to that. Doesn't that sound like a fun weekend...lol.

I heard from Barnes and Noble and have a rebate of $30.00 and change. Did not get anything from Amazon...I don't buy lots of books so did not expect any more than I received. Will enjoy spending my $30 bucks. Kathy, I have received notification from B&N over many months about this case and it has now been settled. If you have purchased Ebooks I suppose you could write them and find out if you are due a rebate.

Time to get another cup of coffee and decide what I want to do today.
Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Good morning everyone - beautiful day and I think I may go to a neighboring town that is having a huge flea market and tag sale. Have to get gas first, got in the car yesterday to go to my lunch and knew I had enough to get there and back, but I do need it today!

Regarding the Rebates - The way I understand it is:
1. the rebates are from ebooks only as there was some type of collusion on the prices.
2. you can only spend the rebate on more ebooks.

Have a good day.

Good Morning everyone,

My windows were all fogged up because of the humidity yesterday..they say that today will be a bad day to be out for those who have problems with the intense humidity..This morning seems OK,,,I have the door open and enjoying the cool air...Hope the painters come today..

Got in 15 minutes on the bike yesterday and my legs were a bit tired afterwards..

Barbara: It is so hard to find a bra that fits properly. I measure like they say and still each brand is different and it is hard to find the perfect fit. It used to be so easy when my body was younger and I didn't have all the droopy skin. Hope you have better luck today.

Doris: Hope you get your car back in perfect condition.

the fires in California are awful..I feel so sorry for all those folks.

Hope Englnad can survive this mess with good prospects for a better future.

Smiles, Betty :)

This is what we have been getting off and on since last evening. Lots of thunder when the storms roll in. Some of the rain is that hard beating down rain.

Today sure was an off day for me. I didn't have any place to go or anything specific to do and it was a good thing because I dozed most of the day. I did get some reading done between nod offs. Not much up moving around though. Not sick or don't feel bad it was just one of those blah days. I did get the weekly TOPS finances posted and balanced.

Take care..

It has been a do nothing day here. I went to town this morning, went to the bank,went to talk to a couple about their daughter's scholarship that the club I go to gives to a deserving graduate. It is not very much but will help. Then I went to the grocery store, past my DD's house and then home. Family reunion on Sunday afternoon so planning on what I will take to that and do some baking tomorrow.

The day is quite warm but not as bad as it has been but it is still humid. No rain here but some not too far away that helps to make it humid.

Whew tired. Came home from grocery shopping and put stuff away and then started lunch and fed Hailey. Then went out again to get dog food for her as running low. Laid down to relax legs and watch a little tv. then it was time to get something to eat.

We had burgers, with beans. I had some corn and peas left from yesterday so put them there too. Supper, for me was some watermelon, a small raisin bagel and ice cream. I hope I keep loosing.

Tomorrow, going out for lunch and have free coupon so going to get some stuffed mushrooms, with the free coupon and maybe a salad with chicken. Those stuffed mushrooms put on calories so have to watch it. We split them as they give you six.
Before with the free coupon I got a piece of Hazel nut cake and we split it. That way no many calories.

Walking is a good exercise for loosing weight. When I walked 3 times a day for l5 min around my neighborhood, I lost. When we went to Disney and we walked all day long, I came home with the same weight I went with and didn't gain and I ate everything there.
So just goes to show walking helps.

I found if you want to lose you have to eat less. You have to stick to it too. Drinking two bottles of water helps keep my hunger away and I do not want to grab food during the day.
Keeping busy helps too. You do not think of food. Trying not to get stressed out can cause you to eat, or doing more than you can handle with housework, or anything. I have been a size 8 my smallest and a size 20 my biggest, so now I am in between a l2 and l4 depending on the mfg. I want to get back to the size l2. I think going to an 8 or l0 I would be too thin.
Besides have to get all new clothes and I just bought some med tops and want to be able to wear them.

Nice having lunch with you Mel.

My goodness we have so many new members its hard to keep up.

Went bra shopping today. GOSH I tried so many bra's on I am all tired out. I came home empty handed. I don't think they make a bra to fit me. My DD is taking me back Sat. to try another store. I am so flusterated,

My dogs misses me. That are wanting to go for a walk. Guess I better take them.

The new little dog Tinkerbell ( if anyone remembers) has cancer. Poor little thing.

Sitting here having my lunch with you. A salad. Take a bite, read and type.

Nas, you might be enjoying the computer, but I am sure you are enjoying the grands. Have a great visit.

Lee, Drew already got another dog. So she is doing ok. I need to get that urge to clean.
Tomorrow I will be doing the wash, so maybe in-between loads I will get some cleaning done.

JoAnn, we do have the 5# challenge and you can also post on the weight chart. Wish I had the magic words to tell you how to lose. But, we all have our different life styles, so it is best to find some kind of exercise that will work for you. Plus count the calories.

Mickey, isn't nice to have the option to put things off until tomorrow. I have been delaying getting out of the house during the day due to the hot weather. But, today, it cannot be delayed any longer as I have things to do out there.

It will be very interesting to see what happens now that England pulled out of the Union.

Doris, hopefully you will have an auto soon. (one that works)

Camey, no I did not get the #. I lost a little of the ones I gained the day before. I will be doing more walking today while I run my errands. Hopefully that will help.

Betty, nice to read that your hip and back are doing better. I have been doing squats every morning and I really can tell the difference. Now I can get up off a chair without hanging onto anything.

Janice, yes teeth are important in our health. When I was a child, we did not have the money to visit dentist. So late in life, I had to have many teeth filled and repaired. But, now I take good care of them. I brush, floss and water pik them.

Maureen, I am sure Avon sales different in different parts of the world. But, nice to hear you are still doing well with your sales.

The salad is gone, time to hit the trail. I can pick up my mail while I am out. The last few days, I have been walking down to get my mail (which is about 1/2 block) at night.

Hi all:

Now I am wondering as I got a $85.65 credit from BARNES & NOBLE and am wondering why nothing from AMAZON as I've bought so much from them. When did the Amazon ones came out ? Mn B& N letter came Monday and the credit today. I'd have had much more fun spending
my windfall at Amazon but happy to get one. Bought some books for Ben already.

Jo Ann good to see you jumping right in here. You might want to try chair exercises if your hip is bad? I found that slow and easy on the weight loss helps.

Mel that is what makes me gain as well. If I stop eating after dinner I do fine! I've been meaning to ask how Drew is doing since her loss of furry comfort?

Dot thanks for being so good about letting us know about new members. And that was a well said guide for new members.

Maureen, glad your biz is not slowing down.

As for the EU I think how Stock Market closes this aft and for the next couple of weeks will tell the tale. Doubt Janet Yellen will be raising interest rates anytime soon. Some say it might be what the Stock Market needs and a buying opportunity in the not too distant future.
They were getting too high to afford.

I have felt like cleaning today so that is almost done. That is a step in the right direction!

Mickey you sure are doing a lot while DH is gone. Hope your head is feeling like you sound.
I forget when your next appointment is?

Janice you will be happy to know I floss twice a day. emoticon . Good advice and good checkup for you. I do have bone loss and that will be the danger of my teeth leaving but can't complain at 79

Have a good rest of your Friday all.
Hugs,
Lee

Hi everyone - well, I decided I can always go grocery shopping tomorrow! So I stayed home this morning and cleaned out a couple of cabinets. It is another beautiful day - storms yesterday went to the south - so we didn't get a drop and we desperately need it.

As soon as I woke up this morning, I put the radio on and heard about the UK pulling out of the EU. Sent the stock-market tumbling down this morning by 500 points - not good. Hope it all levels out and that 5 years from now, the UK is not in trouble because of this vote.

JoAnn - welcome aboard - I am sure you will find the site interesting, sad and funny at different times. I am a retired RN in Conn. but still work part time doing administrative and writing for a small high tech medical imaging company. I handed in my resignation two years ago and I am still there!

Janice - good report from the dentist. I remember as a little kid - everyone I knew who was really old (in their 70's - LOL) either had no teeth, a few or false teeth. I remember my granddad eating one nut at a time with his four remaining teeth. My hygienist said she had a client in his 40's who asked, "...so when do my teeth start falling out?"

Friday morning, wishing you all a great day and a lovely weekend. Weather wise we are into our 90* with possible thunder showers as the day progresses. Typical Florida summer weather. Have some errands to run so hope to dodge the showers.

JoAnn welcome and was so please to see your post today. You might have wondered why so many of us were writing about the house we grew up in... we are being presented with a QOTW ( Question off the week ) on Monday mornings. We will have a new ? on Monday. Do join in we will love having you. We also have a spread sheet for posting our weight on Mondays, we have an ongoing challenge to try and lose 5 pounds over several months. Marlene our team leader introduced both of these idea's to give us inspiration...If you are new
to the team we invite you to become active on the chat line, come and inspire us...

Have to get going with my day...have a good one. Doris have just heard the news re England pulling out of the European Union. Will have to wait and see what happens now. Do hope we will not be affected.
Hugs and blessings to all,
Dot

Good morning..Lots of storms here all nightlong.
I do not have to water my flowers on the deck.
The dealer's spokesman called yesterday afternoon to say they are driving the auto now and will keep it over today to drive it again several times to see if light stays off..
Ha!!!..Good luck, I say...No not to them really, only in my mind.

Warm and into 90's again today..I will get back later for the verdict as to if I have an auto...

Thanks for concern..It is only an auto after all. There are many more woes in this old world than my transportation...
What do you think of England pulling out of the EU? Will it have any consequences for you? Doris emoticon

Just a quick not as washing and have grocery shopping to get done.

Mel, I didn't mean to send those lbs. to you. Hope you didn't get the .3 I lost today. Now down to l3l.5 from l3l.8. Hope I can keep it up. Eating a small bagel and ice cream for supper helps as have my big meal in the afternoon. I start out with my oatmeal, nuts and sometimes a little Cheerio. Then it could be Hambergers and beans, meatloaf, salmon, chicken veg soup. chicken p, which we had yesterday. So far it is working as I also do my bike for 40 min.
If I could only walk around the block I would lose more, but the legs ache when I stand too much or walk too much.

Frances Landon already works in a restaurant making pizza and sandwiches. His friend's father bought a small place and Landon works there with his friend getting l0.00 an hour.
I get him on off days. He still has 3 more years before he is off to college. By then if I am still here I will be 87 and need him more. LOL

Good Morning everyone,

I think the storms are gone and it is peaceful this morning...So many folks around here had big trees fall on their houses and lots of damage. I feel so sorry for them...I think this rain might have slowed down the painters...they are supposed to come here on Saturday, but I wonder if they got behind on their schedule because of the rain...We''ll see if they show up...

Doris: I hope you have a good mechanic working on your car...it is so frustrating when things like this happen...I hope the problem gets resolved for good this time.

Lee: Actually, my hip and back are doing better...it is just a slow process. The bike seems to be making my leg stronger. Just takes so long..but the chiropractor says it will work...so I will give it s bit more time an see what happens. Thanks for asking.

Wishing you all lots of smiles today...Betty :)

Hi Everyone,
I thought I had posted yesterday, but I don't see it and maybe I didn't. emoticon

I read all of your posts. emoticon

I was happy that when I went to the dentist, he said, "No cavities!" emoticon


He checked out my X-rays very carefully. I go every 6 months for a cleaning and every other time he takes X-rays. He was very pleased that I floss and had very little plaque and that my gums didn't even bleed when he was doing the cleaning. He said this was very good. emoticon

The only reason I am telling you this, is that taking care of your teeth and gums are very important for your over all health. As much as flossing is an annoying bother, it is really worth it to save your teeth. Brushing up into your gums stimulates your gums and keeps plaque from forming and helps prevent gingivitis. emoticon

People don't realize that a dentist can tell how healthy you are by looking at your teeth, gums and mouth and tongue. So not to nag you all but don't forget to floss, it's saves your teeth. emoticon

Sorry if this sounds like nagging. emoticon

Janice

Just a short note to catch up again. Nice weather here slight breeze and no humidity. May get warmer bye Sat. or Sunday with rain. emoticon emoticon to our new members. Frances , I am not sure how to find you on Facebook again but I will eventually do so for sure. I don't go on it very much but usually to reply to others posting asking for information. Am just a little busy with deliveries again. Mel I don't notice much change in my sales so am not sure , maybe different because of shorter time between orders. My customers don't order as often because we used to only have 18 brochures a year now we have 26 so they don't buy every time. Sales still amount to the same over the year. Lee glad you are improving and sorry no hugs today from the "Bug Man" Doris that car is a big pain and I hope the bill gets reduced after they find the real problem. Do drive the loaner and be able get to your meetings. Mickey enjoy your day off and also your lunch. Prayers are ongoing for those as needed . Time to say Good Night and God Bless Sweet Dreams emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Maureen

Hi everyone, the rain missed us again, so I did water the hanging plants when I got home. My DH put out the trash and recycle bins before he left. I brought them up the driveway tonight, thank goodness they have wheels on them!

Sue-I do like some 'alone' time every once in a while. Before my DH retired, he was usually out at least one night a week and I use to look forward to them as I didn't have to cook.

Doris-sorry about your car - it has been a long haul! I am keeping my fingers crossed on my Avalon as it is 10 years old.

Going out for lunch with my 'committee' group tomorrow, so I am taking the whole day off. Haven't decided if I will just lounge or go grocery shopping in the morning.

Sleep well.

Stopping by to say hello, I've been here for the past few days but I get interrupted before I can post and never get back here.

Welcome to the new people, always nice to see new faces.

Mickey, don't you love having time alone? I know I do. Wow, you got a good windfall from Amazon, I got $64 and thought I did well.

Doris, I am so sorry about your car problems, I still miss my sweet little hybrid. I loved that car and had less than 1400 miles on it when we had our accident. I have a Ford Focus now with all the bells and whistles and it is fine but.....

Frances, have a safe trip if I don't get back here before you leave.

Lee, good to hear you are feeling better.

Doris, that is horrible about your car. I thought that in this day and age, they could hook up the car to a computer and it would spit out the problem. I guess that is not the case. Sure hope they make it right for you.

Welcome to our new members. Hope you join us in our chats. emoticon

Camey, you lost some weight and I found it as I gained according to my scales this morning.
I know what I am doing wrong - eating after 8 at night. Now, just have to slap my hand as I reach for that snack.

Barbara, that was a funny story about your older sisters. I wish I could say my bathing suit was too big for me.

Frances and others, enjoy the rain. Wish we had some in AZ. There are a lot of fires burning here.
So far, I don't think and homes have be destroyed.

Rosie, sure hope the injections give you some relief.

Maureen, I just read on one of the surveys that I take, that Avon sales are down. Do you find that the case? She was trying to figure out why.

Mickey, enjoy your no cooking days. That was a great credit from Amazon. I only got $11.00.
But, then I really don't buy that many as I read the free ones I get there. It is nice as it is added to my account and I can spend it on anything.

Today, I am going to do some genealogy work for someone I met last night. He has a gg grandfather who changed his name and he was wondering why. So I thought I would dig and see what I could find for him.

Welcome to Patty (or is it Jo Ann)? Glad to have you with us. emoticon
Also Welcome to Pipergran. emoticon Love to have you both. Stay with us and you'll never want to leave as it is a great group of supportive people.

Doris, I am so sorry to hear all the problems with your car and yes..they owe you a BIG refund for just the inconvenience especially for charging you for not fixing it. How very stressful for you my friend.

Frances I am sure you are looking foward to seeing your older grands and catching up. I know they too will keep you busy but in a different way. Yipeee!

Betty how is the hip shot working out? AND the back. Just can't seem to keep you down.

I didn't hug my bug man today. Didn't want to see him catch anything as he is headed for NY next week. told him that's probably where I got it.

I did manage to get errands done that I didn't finish yesterday when I got soaked by the rain.

Barb..good to hear from you ...you are another energizer bunny. such an unusual but interesting story about your two sisters.

Elsie. I was going through a box of pictures and old memories and came up with a Statuette
from TOP "TOPS CHAPTER QUEEN" 1994. It was a good group of women and some men and my outlet while taking care of my sick husband. So I do know how important it is to keep it off after you lose. (I didn't) but will this time.

Rosie I sure hope you start to feel better.

Helen and Maureen, how is the weather in your parts of Canada?

We are having a heat wave as they seem to be over a lot of the US and it just turned summer.

This will have to be short as while I am getting better it knocks some of the stuffing out of me and my kitchen flood is grimey.

Hugs all,
Lee

Back again for only a minute...
You will not believe, but when I went to start the auto to get to the critique on Tuesday morning, after my bill of more than $700.00, my engine light went on and this is what I paid the money for. They did not fix it with the new computer ! I almost gave a scream and was agitated all through that day. It was too late to take it back to the dealer and so I had to get it there at 7:30 yesterday morning.

It is still there as they said they were looking for the problem. I am waiting for a call.
I asked for the manager of the repair shop and he seemed to be understanding and did agree that if the computer did not fix the problem that it was not the answer. I so hope they will make a serious adjustment in the monies spent, moreover I hope they will find the problem finally and fix it. My family are all distressed for my upset.

They, the dealership, gave me a new '16 Dodge van to drive home and it sits in my parking space. I do not feel safe taking it elsewhere as it is so new to me. And thus I am here 'stuck' at home.

Oh, I am so disappointed and frustrated... I do need an auto here as there is no public transportation anywhere close by.
I do also feel that I am still a careful driver and wish to do so for some time to come.

Well, enough...I will tell you what comes of this ...It is to be 96 here today with an over 100 degree 'feels like' temperature...

I will check in later..
Do keep cool and drink lots of liquids, all...Love, Doris emoticon

WELCOME PIPERGRAN....

Frances, I have plenty of work for Landon to do. The problem is I will give him a little each week as I pay him and I don't want to keep running to my checking account. He knows I pay him so that is why he is always asking to help. Some weeks I will have him work and others we will cook and do different things together.

Old girl, lost .1 today so l3l.7 now, down a point. from l3l.8 yesterday. But it is hard not to eat in between sometimes. I try and drink two bottles of water a day and then have one glass with my Vit D and one with BP. making 6. Having a big lunch helps to keep you full. Problem is when you start to get bored, or restless that is when you start to eat. I wish I could walk but the legs won't let me go far. So all I have is my bike. I read, do computer, some house work each day, watch tv, and that about sums it up, no excitement. We do go out to eat and the store but not everyday, so trying to keep busy isn't easy.

Also, the computer is acting up again and I have to restart as it stops on me. My friend has a new job and is in training so don't know when he will be able to go into it. Hate the thought of having to buy another.

Hello again. I guess I have been MIA for a while. A lot to catch up on. Its much easier to get on here every day.

Every one seems well. Enjoyed stories about your first houses. I am still living in the house I was born in. Didn't move to far. My sisters were over 20 years older than me. I didn't even know I had sisters until I went to school. They asked if I had sisters or brothers and I said no. Told my mother when I got home and she told me I had 2 older sisters. Don't you love it. I thought those ladies were my mothers friends.

Have to mow again today. Started yesterday and got rained out.

Had a nice fathers day. Sat pool side and everyone brought something and we had quite a spread. Ate way too much. It was a little cold so no one went swimming. My bathing suit was way to big for me anyway. I have lost 7 inches around my hips.

I hope I can get on here tomorrow. I get so far behind.

Later Barbara

Good morning! We also woke up to thunder and lightning. The storm seems to have passed, but there will be rain at least until mid-day. The kids are already set up with a table full of play-doh, rolling pins, etc, so I will have some coffee now.

JoAnn, welcome to the group!

Betty, I hope you can get out to ride the bike today.

Rosie, sorry you're hurting - and worrying. Maybe quilting will take your mind off things for a while, at least.

Maureen, I'll watch for you on fb.

Mickey, we'll try to send some of this rain your way - maybe minus the thunder and lightning. LOL

Elsie, you had a busy day. Keep your head down and maybe Friday will stay open!

Lee, what a mess with the passwords! Your security is good to catch it quickly, though, and breaches just cannot be avoided.

Vahina, like you I prefer "real" books. Also, I spend enough time on computers, so the change is good for both my eyes and brain.

Dot, your B&N payment might not be too bad, especially if you order a lot from them. I've gotten so many of these "class action" things lately - the B&N, Ticketmaster, Justice (a girls clothing shop), something the other day that slips my mind. Mostly, I just toss them as I didn't file a suit against anyone and apparently was satisfied with whatever transaction I had. Seems like lawyers are just out chasing business these days (but it won't be mine - LOL).

Mel, Kilean has been telling me what I do wrong for a while now. Just this morning I made a "mistake" and gave him the wrong spoon. He cracks me up because he's so particular, but he definitely knows what he likes (and doesn't like).

Camey, enjoy Landon's help while you can. Soon he'll be off to college or work and won't be available!

Marlene, your details of the day are not boring at all. It was almost like we went along with you (or at least got to hear about it over a cup of coffee). Nice you were able to call on your friends and cheer them up.

I forgot to mention that the "Row by Row" experience started this past weekend! Quilters who participate can begin collecting their rows from now until the end of summer.

Yes, I am much in need of a NY break - it's been too long. Not sure what day I'll leave, but sometime around a week from now, partly depending on my daughter's work schedule. The girls are finishing up at school and Ahnu is bicycling without training wheels - and no doubt many other developments to catch up.

Play-doh time seems to be over. I have to supervise clean-up and then Kilean will have his phonics activity, while Magdalena sorts objects by color. After that, we'd better have some physical activity on the back porch if the rain isn't blowing in - it seems to be letting up.

Good early morning. I couldn't sleep, between a cup of coffee around 7 and my back hurting. I start injections next week for my back. Also find out more about the MGUS on Tuesday. Trying not to worry about it, gust I am worrying more than I thought.

Not as busy this week and next month at the Community Center, so maybe I will be able to rest some and work on granddaughter's quilt. That is also relaxing to me.

As for the weather here it has been hot and humid. Today we had a thunderstorm, that cooled it down. We sat out on the front porch and enjoyed the view.

Wishing all a great day.

Hi everyone. I'm late as usual.. emoticon emoticon JoAnn Please do join us on this chat line. Lovely weather here today in the mid 70's. with a slight breeze. . Frances sorry you didn't realize it was me on face book ,I think that was when you had the mat for Kilean with all the places on it. Our Avon group is very large and posted as closed but later I will drop in on face book again so you can see what I look like as my picture is now on there with DH. Camey sounds like you are winning the battle with the scale. emoticon Lee glad you are feeling better. Elsie you have a very busy schedule there with TOPS and the gift shop hours you have. Dot take care and lose the sinus drip . Stay feeling better.. In case I am missing anyone I will "ditto" Frances and Mel's posts as they are so great at catching everything. Time to slow down and get ready for tomorrow's deliveries. So will just say Good Night and God Bless Sweet Dreams. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Maureen

Hi everyone, dry summer day here. We really need some rain, but it keeps missing us. Will have to water my hanging plants tomorrow.

Today my DH drove to NH and he and my DD's family will leave for CO tomorrow out of Boston at 7:20 am. I figure they will be getting up at 3:30 am tomorrow. My DH will visit his sisters in Denver and my DD and family will go to a wedding in Colorado Springs. First time I've been alone in two years-my only plan is - not to cook!

I got a notice from Amazon today. I got over $200 in credit. I must have ordered all books that were in class action suit!

This is a short note tonight-sleep well

Another hot day here......we set a record of 98 with the heat index at 103.

Had a busy dy......started the day by trimming 3 trees and doing 2 loads of laundry. Then went to work at the church before going to my routine 6 month check up. Also dropped 2 letters in the mail box at the post office after my appointment then got a frozen yogurt cone and ate it on the way home....lol

Not very hungry for supper so made a big bowl of salad. I did stop at a veggie stand before coming home and got tomatoes, onions, cukes, cabbage, and zucchini.

Tomorrow morning is TOPS and so far Friday I get to stay home.

Take care..........Elsie

Sorry gals: I could have sworn I posted yesterday.

Hope you are not coming down with it Dot.

Actually I think today I am turning the corner as feel almost human. Thanks for your concern.

Dot and Mel I did get that Barnes and Nobel email yesterday too. (I had NOOK during those years. Have had Kindle since. If not enough to buy a book, I'll ignore it.

My reason for being late today is I've been changing passwords all over my computer.
I got a message last night that my Carbonite (highly regarded) back up and restore system was breached and they immediately put on lock down. they sent a code to get in and change my password, and said if I had any others like my old password to change to be safe.
I only had one near that but decided to change as many as I could. Mainly Credit, Bank and Stock Market...but while at it, Facebook and my scrabble game and on and one.

Frances I'm glad you will get back to NY to see your other family. I didn't catch when but you need the change of pace, so to speak.

Mickey hope you are progressing better each day.

All for this eve.
Hugs,
Lee

Mel I had an email from Barnes & Noble telling me that I would have a credit posting to my account within the next few days. Knowing my luck it will be minor amount...bet I have to buy a book to use my credit ~ and have to spend more money. You have a year to use it. Will let you know how much...appreciate you bringing it to my attention.

Frances glad to hear you will be going to New York to see the other grand children. Was wondering if you would get away this summer. How wonderful that one of the girls will be entering her teen years. I was lucky to see all three GD's become beautiful sweet young women. It was fun. My GGD turned 11years old in May...I can't believe where the time has gone. Enjoy those GC they do grow up so fast.

My niece is on her way over here to take some copies. So guess I had better get off the computer so she can do what she has to.

Have a good evening and hope Lee is okay...we need to hear from you.

Hugs and Blessings,
Dot

Dot, it is nice to hear you are feeling better. I was wondering if you will be getting money from your downloading of books on your Nook? I read it is for all ebooks. My notice came in my email.

Camey, sounds like you have the growth of a Handyman in Landon. Nice that he wants to help.

Marlene, that was indeed a good day yesterday. Enjoy the little ones today.

Frances, soon Kilean will be telling you what you do wrong. They do get a mind of their own in time.

Betty, your story about walking reminds me that I do not remember ever getting a ride to school in a car by my parents. It was always walking or if we lived in the country and went to the school in town, it would be by bus. But, even then, we walked aways to get to the bus stop. At one of my schools, we also had the tube slides. FUN.

Maureen, I also have a small group I keep on FB. Mostly family with a few really close friends. Enjoy the nice weather.

Mickey, nice to hear you are feeling better with each day.

Speaking of feeling better. Lee has not been here for a couple days. Hope she is ok.

Today, I will be going to the golf restaurant to have dinner with friends before heading to our other club house for cards.

Have a great day. May the pounds disappear over night.

Scratchy throat was gone this morning. Do have sinus drainage and runny nose. But don't feel to bad. Thanks to all who wished me well. Guess I needed the nap yesterday. Slept good last night and am not feeling tired today, need to get some cleaning done. Have been watching to much TV...that is not good.

Well the iPad tells me the battery is low, so guess to will have to close this and hopefully will be back later.

Naz it is so good to see you posting even if you did not leave any comments...your here in DC. Are you staying with your daughter? Hope you had a good trip.

Hugs and blessings to all...have to close before I lose the message.

GK got out of school today. Landon is at a amusement park with his class for last day and Alexis is home. Landon wants to come over this week and do my windows. I better have some dollars ready. LOL

He will also cut grass for DH. He wants to come every week and help. I told him I am not paying him every week as he will put me in the poor house. LOL So that week I will just take him out to eat or have his cook something so he can learn how.
