UK weather is like that all the time. The two most commonly used words in weather forecasting in the UK are 'changeable' and 'unsettled'.

Today it is 'changeable'. :-) So far we have had rain, hail, snow, sleet and sunshine, and wind - mustn't forget the wind. :-)

warm enough to air bedding but not wash it. They have no idea what is going on. We've heard snow, rain, sunshine. Guess we'll know as it happens.

I know! The costs are horrendous! Maybe if I start walking I'll get there one day. Well, I'll have to do a bit of swimming as well. ;-)

At 190.00 before I even get to Scotland, I'll settle for looking at pictures for now but it's on my list and it's something to aim for.
Today though, a lentil shepherds pie I think...

I've fancied living on St Kilda's. It looked a hard but simple life (a part from the sea gull catching bit). All of the houses are ruined now (I believe) but one of those little cottages - huge veg garden at the back...oh lovely. I think there may be tours? One day may be...

I have always fantasized about living in the Western Isles, but as that is the part of the UK that seems to get hit the worst at times like this, it dampens my enthusiasm somewhat. I still think it would be an amazing place to live though, and those crofter cottages are low slung and solid as anything. Probably explains the lack of trees up there though - all those storms.

DUSTYPRAIRIE - wise words! Easter will be here very quickly. I should start planning....

LEXIE - this wind is amazing! I've not known it this bad. It does cause an eyebrow to raise!

We are in between storms at the moment. Looking at about ten days of very nasty weather. Ugh. I can handle the rain, but the gales! Too much. High winds make me very nervous.

oh, my. I'm thinking ahead to Easter. You know - getting some craft ideas and be ready for it for the grands.

weather is crazy. We've roller-coastered from 60's to teen back to mid 50's and today in the 20's.

I have been working 10 hours this week......the principal at the school I work at has a Caring Breakfast. Parent or whoever wants to can come and eat with a student. Sounds nice right? Well NOT!!! Not when you have to cook biscuits and gravy for 116 to 120 people a day for a week!!! Plus cook for my own paying students. I'm soooooooo tired!! emoticon I have been going to sleep at 8:30 every night!! LOL!!

Forgot to set my alarm this morning, so a mad rush around to start the day. Mind you, it isn't me who has to leave the house at a certain time, and I hope my daughter now realises she needs to rely on herself a bit more as my memory isn't 100% reliable! LOL

If you've exercised or drunk your water or eaten your freggies, you earn a guess at either a letter or the quote. So come on by and have some fun for dessert. :-)

Hi all. I've taken over as team leader here for the time being. I hope that if Lyn is able to, she will return at some point, and I will gladly give back leadership to her, but in the meantime I didn't want to see the team die off.
Hugs,
Lex xxx

Lyn, hope it gets resolved. We hate to lose you!

I've been up since 2am. I jumped out of bed for some reason. The dogs were all up and roaming. I let the border collie out. Coyotes? I didn't want the others out til she came back. I was coming out of the bathroom and catch one of the older, should-know-better, dogs peeing on my husbands trunk. I ended up letting the other 3 out and none have come back. I may have to get hubby up if they don't get back soon.

Hopefully today I will get back on track eating. I was ok except for the cookies this weekend.

Lyn - did you try signing in to SP from a different computer? If so, were the pages still wonky?

Just a short hello today. I'm taking a quick break at work and need to get back to it.

I hope everybody's doing great! Hugs!

I didn't mean Support, I meant the message board where other SP members talk about quirks with the site. Sometimes other users are more helpful than the IT dept!

Very strange! Other than SP support, you could search the technical message board and see if anyone else reported the same problem. I haven't heard of anyone se having that probkem, which is why I thought it might be your computer, not the website. Anyway if you want to leave I won't stop you, just wish you could find a technical solution!

No other web site does this. Yes, I ask tech support, they just told me to use another browser....I did and it didn't work. I tried opera, chrome and internet explorer.

Do any other websites do that? It might be the screen resolution.

I haven't had any problems with the new layout, dune things are at up differently but they mostly seemed like good changes and everything displays correctly.

Did you ask in the Technical section of Message Boards?

I have tried different browsers, it's the same thing. That's why my son said it has to be this site.
I really hate to leave, I love this team, learned a lot about new and old britcoms. I'm going to miss you all soooooo much!!!

Checking different browsers is a great idea, MAGNOLIA416. I have software at work that works fine in Firefox but doesn't play well with the other browsers, especially Internet Explorer. My first question to people who call up with problems (well, my second question, after "Did you try turning it off and then turning it back on again?" LOL) is to ask what browser they're using. Lyn, have you tried different browsers?

Not that you should have to. It sounds like SP's latest software update isn't playing well with whatever browser you're using.

At any rate, we'll sure miss you on here, Lyn! Wishing you success in all your future endeavors!

Hugs!

Sorry to see you go! I use SP with Chrome and it works fine for me. Best wishes with your health journey!

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

Good afternoon

I will be closing my account June 30th. This site is so confusing plus I have the distorted pages to contend with.

I love those posts of fb about wine. I have a lot of them!! :)

Have a great day!! emoticon

The SP tech team sounds even less helpful than Moss and Roy. "Did you try turning it off and turning it back on again?"

emoticon

This goes for everyone on our team - I'm on FB, Google+, and also have my website, leannawidgren.com, so if you do decide to jump the SP ship but still keep in touch, you can find me there.

OK...back to my writing retreat. So far, I've spent nearly four hours modernizing and reworking my entire resume, so that's something! And, I cleaned up my FB timeline of anything a potential employer might find questionable. There wasn't anything to remove, really, except an odd post about wine. Even though I don't in reality drink it very often, I'd hate for someone to get the impression that I'm a wino through my FB funnies.

I hope you all have an excellent, productive, healthy day! Hugs!

Good morning,

Leanna - yes all activity counts!!

I got a response from the tech people here. They told me to use a different browser, that no one else has complained. I used a different one and the problem still exists. I don't use spark much anymore, just to check in with the team a lead. I don't even care anymore if I get points or not. I just don't like the site anymore. I will give you warning when I do close my account. I want to keep in touch!!

Getting ready to go to curves. Another hot one here. I guess summer is here!!

Hello everybody!

Gardening counts! I say all physical activity counts! I think, technically, the only thing that doesn't count is sleeping and jumping to conclusions. Everything else is fair game!

Lyn, sorry to hear you're frustrated with the site. I haven't noticed much since their last big update but I don't track so there could be changes there that I haven't seen. Mostly, I just pop into SP to say hi to my favorite team (BCL!) and a few people and that's it. I'm in a down turn of the pendulum so have really been taking it easy on myself and not pushing myself extra hard.

If SP is the only page that is causing you problems, you might consider writing to their tech help before you cancel your account. They may have settings recommendations for you or another way to help. We'd hate to see you go. I'd miss you for sure!

OK...off to do some reading and then hit the sack. I'm house sitting so have my parents' house all to myself until Friday morning (I even took tomorrow off work). So, I've got a "writing retreat" planned. So needed!

Catch up with you all again soon! Hugs!!

Good afternoon!

So sorry I have not been on. I'm having a problem with Sparkpeople. My page and these forums have been distorted for the past few weeks and it's getting annoying!! I'm ready to close my account. My son says its the web site, not our computer. GGGRR!R!!

Summer is going fast!! Hope everyone is enjoying it!! I know I am!!! emoticon

Bri - My husband used to have a hammock, he loved it!! He would lounge in it when he would bbq. He wore it out!!

Hi Everyone! Happy Father's Day! I heard this being spoken to all kinds of folks today, male and female. It was strange to hear one day saying it to a lady he knew while shopping at the supermarket.

I have been throwing lots of energy into gardening. My arms are so sore I can't lift them up. It is important to remember that physical activity is exercise and it is important to stretch after. I guess I forgot shoveling and tilling by hand. Too bad. Not just the soreness, but it's said you lose about 30% of the bene if you don't stretch after.

I got hubby a hammock for father's day. He's not feeling well and is napping after meds. Had I thought ahead I'd have had his hammock set up so he could nap in the garden.

Thanks for listening! (((hugs)))

It's another lazy day. I'm feeling that exam from yesterday. That guy pulled on me and manipulated.

I stuck the pot of flowers into the container (not planting) and caught a hen picking at the leaves! That explains why my pepper plant is nothing but a stem.

What possessed me to do laundry today I don't know. I'll have to dry it indoors. It drizzles off and on so it doesn't make sense to let the fresh air dry it.

Have a wonderful day! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm out in la la land. I had a chiro appnt this morning and it wiped me out. Funny thing. I waited quite a while to get season 8 of "as Time Goes By". Waiting for me was season 9! Now I can just sit back and relax.

I did get plants to get into the ground, but between the lethargy and an approaching storm I will hold off planting til morning. I feel like I've done duty! (army speak)

Y'all enjoy the rest of your day. emoticon

Hey everybody!

Saddened to hear of the death of Rik Mayall, who you may remember from The Young Ones or as Lord Flasheart in Blackadder. He was such a comic talent and will be missed! The BBC wrote a nice article, link attached.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Beautiful and sunny here (for now!). Hugs!

Lyn, glad everything turned out ok. Stressful stuff in the meanwhile.

I was writing of something that happened to me yesterday but turned it into a blog!

I got home yesterday and it got chilly and dark. There is nothing like getting to relax on a day like that with good shows on. What a smile that came to my face when I found season 8 of "As Time Goes By" in the mailbox! I had a wonderful afternoon watching. (hubby was away at army)

Sans going out in the morning, today should be similar. Hope you all can enjoy the same peace.

Hello!

Lyn, glad to hear that your hubby's cancer stuff is all well. Sorry to hear about your dad, though! Sometimes it's hard for us all to slow down and remember we're not as youthful as before. We are all prone to overdoing it.

Not much going on here today. Writing, working in the garden, walking and playing with Moose. Incidentally, he still thinks he's a young pup, too. (And there's a good chance he thinks he's human, as well!).

I hope everybody's having a great Saturday and that Sunday is good too! Hugs!

Good morning,

Had a busy Friday yesterday. I went to my husband cancer doctor appointment with him, all is good there. While there, my mom called me on my cell, my dad was admitted in the hospital for chest pains. He went through all sort of test, nothing was found. Come to find out he had a pulled muscle in his chest. My dad will be 80 in September, but he thinks his in his 30 and can do anything!! That is so hard for him to understand!! He's coming home today. I'm going with my mom to pick him up.

So, another busy day!!

Hope you hall have an amazing day! emoticon

Hey everybody!

Bri, could be stress causing the cold sore. It sounds like you've been stressed to the max with a new puppy, new meds, and fires. Just try to take it easy and get better!

I've been carpooling with Mike this week so my exercise schedule has been wacky. Tomorrow I'll be marooned at home, which I'm looking forward to. I can work out, write, and do all the things I need to do without feeling like I have to go run errands.

I wish you all a very happy Friday and a great start to your weekend!

Hi Team.

Fire near my property yesterday. I was a mess. Trying to relax today because the bp went up so high.

New meds to adjust to. Also getting a letter from the doc and won't be going to Curves for awhile. I'm just wasting $ by only going now and then.

That's the scoop!

Lyn, emoticon on the new position!

Just trying to stay awake this afternoon. I need to take some meds but they make me so drowsy.

I have a cold sore. I haven't had one in so long. I don't know why all of a sudden. Trying to leave it alone.

The new puppy is keeping me plenty busy. He seems intelligent. I can't seems to catch him before an accident. He has a favorite spot in the middle of the kitchen floor. At least he doesn't go on the carpet like that other rescue dog.

Good morning!

I'd never thought of having a BBQ for a wedding feast, but I did attend one wedding where the food was pizza. Just pizza. No, wait, pizza and bread sticks! And the family was a group of die-hard meat eaters who didn't consider the vegetarians in the family, so I didn't eat any. I got a lot of "can't you just pick it off?" comments from people who don't understand that, no, you can't just pick off pepperoni and make the pizza magically vegetarian. It's OK. It was better for my waistline that I didn't indulge.

Planting the garden today so I'd better get to it before it gets too hot.

I hope you have a terrific Sunday and a good start to your week!

Good morning!!

Hello Leanna!! So good to hear from you!!

We went to a wedding reception last night. My nephew got married in Mexico April 30. Had a good time but the food was very different. The had pulled pork, baked beans, slaw, brats, potato salad and lots of desserts. The problem was all the food was spicy and the desserts were very soft and melted. It was very hot and humid yesterday. The wine was good!! LOL!!
Thank heaves I ate a sandwich before I left. I could not eat anything on my plate last night.

Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Sunday!! emoticon

Hello, and happy Weekend to everybody!

Not much going on this weekend - still playing catch-up from my trip last weekend and the odd Internet outage that struck our area for nearly two days. Funny how we've all become so dependent on the Internet (although I still think it's kind of fun when it goes out - it reminds me of life before the Internet!).

I overindulged last weekend and am recovering slowly. I've been exercising and avoiding wheat and sugar, which really makes me feel so much better that I always wonder why I don't do this all the time.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I've missed checking in with you all! Hugs!

Good morning!!

We made 250 hot dogs on a bun yesterday and wrapped them in foil. Today it's a deli sandwich. 250 again!!

The head cook was in a fowl mood yesterday, I hope today is better, but I doubt it. I'm so glad I will be done from there next year!!

I will be late checking in tomorrow. I'm going to work at 6am, to help clean and close the kitchen. Then we have the end of the year ice cream social (which I'm going to do my best NOT to eat!!!)

Have a great day my friends!! emoticon

I also meant to say, Lyn, that I like the idea of a June challenge. I was thinking of challenging myself to keep improving with my exercise (go longer, or faster, for example). Perhaps we could do some type of challenge where we, personally, task ourselves with improving something each day, week, or session. Someone with consistency problems might challenge themselves to improve consistency by doing something X number of times per week. Or those of us that do exercise regularly could challenge ourselves to go beyond our previously set limits (which often are plateau-shaped!).

Just some ideas. Thoughts?

Hello! Thanks for the encouragement, Lyn!

I'm actually back on the wagon, too, of sorts. I've started running on the treadmill again and that has done WONDERS for me physically and mentally. Sorry for the rant the other day - but thank you for indulging me!

Good to hear you're on track and losing weight! YAY!!

Happy weekend to everybody!

Good morning,

I'm sorry you are both feeling down. I too gained this weekend. I ate pretty good, it was the wine (saw my MIL on Saturday emoticon )

Would you like some kind of a challenge in June? It can be anything, Let's all think on it.

It's still cool here, in the 50's and rainy.

Hope you lovely ladies have a wonderful day!! Remember, emoticon
