Kathy I have never canned anything, but it does sound like a whole lot of work. Do you eat everything in one years time? Or do you give it away to your children too? That is a whole lot of mowing too! When your DH retires will he be helping you?

emoticon I am feeling great today except for my legs! Hahaha, I did too many squats and they are talking to me! :-)

Good for you , Christine!! And Paula, I know you are already well-established with your exercise regimes.

Now me on the other hand.... This summer has just been crazy - the grass is still growing like it does in May - I try to convince myself that my outside work is enough for now. Though I'm active, I know I don't get the focused muscle group workouts that I need - moreso at this age than ever before, nor the intense heart-pounding aerobic exercise. But right now, the garden stuff has kicked into full gear, so with that added to the outside work, I'm already short on time. (If you girls don't hear from me from time to time over the next two months, it will be because I am elbow deep in some fruit or vegetable - the canning projects vary day to day.) I'm truly hoping once this all lets up some, to get into a more structured fitness program. So is my plan at this point anyway.

emoticon Christine! I need to work on my posture, too. I've got what is called a forward leaning head posture, and I'm aware that my default posture is with my neck leaning forward. When I think about it, I tell myself to draw my chin in. When I'm driving, I try to draw my head back to where I feel the headrest.

Kathy -- I'm not a natural hostess. I, too, need to work at hospitality. I'm always glad when I've made the effort. Guess I'm just set in my own ways and enjoy time to myself.

Wow I've been on a roll with fitness and projects so I haven't gotten here much sorry I've been MIA. Got my 3 mile walk in going to go out to brunch with DH and then I'm going to the gym to row for about 10 or 15 minutes. It really helps my posture which is terrible because I used to work over a computer anyway I hope everybody's doing good

I agree. Nothing is more tiring to me than having company, especially overnite company, even if it is my own family. I always say that I do not have the "gift" of hospitality as some seem to, but I still think hospitality is important and something we all need to practice - it is just that some of us have to work harder at it, and find it to bemore stressful - even though we enjoy it at the time.

All that to say, Christine, that I'm glad you had such a nice time with your sister, and also you have no reason to feel guilty about being tired afterwards! Anything that takes us out of our normal zone is bound to do that to us.

emoticon My focus is on tracking. Have put on a couple, and it's time to stop the trend. I know what I'm doing wrong, it's just a matter of getting back on track. Well woman checkup at the end of the month, and I want to weigh the same I did about a year and a half ago at my last one.

The real estate agent (one of my old aerobic lunch buddies) plans to have fliers to hand out at the sale, but it does not formally go on the market till we make a few improvements to the house that we can't really do till the sale is done and stuff is moved out of the house. Things like putting in a new dishwasher, touching up holes in the walls, paint touch-up etc. I have no idea when the sale is. I think when Donna was getting DH's parents house together, she didn't have as many jobs she was working on at the same time. The way DH's parents' sale went is that it was for 2 days. The second day everything was half price. I can't remember whether the third day was still open to everyone, but on the third day dealers came in and she made them prices on multiple items. We have a couple pieces of furniture we pulled the first day when they didn't sell because we didn't want to sell them at half price. AFter the third day there was still a lot of stuff left that the family went over and picked out things they wanted as opposed to giving away -- then a man came and offered us a price for everything left in the house (ridiculously low, of course) with the stipulation that he would clear EVERYTHING out, not just the stuff he actually wanted. I imagine it will go pretty much the same with this sale.

Christine -- I bet you are tired. Even though you enjoyed having your sister visit, having company still upsets the routine.

emoticon I don't know why but I have been so tired for the last couple of days! I slept in again today. Oh well, I am hoping to get back to my bathroom project today. My sister and I didn't do anything special really just enjoyed each other.

Kathy so sorry for too much rain, glad you are going to get some new apples pretty soon though. They should be plump and juicy from all the rain.

Paula, I have a feeling your Mom's sale is going to be a huge one! It just sounds like she had a lot of everything. When is the sale?

Paula - Well, it sounds to me like you have a lot of valuable things to be sold at the auction, so if it is taking time to get the optimal benefit in the end, just be patient knowing that the end result will be well worth it! I love estate auctions, and this sounds to me like it would be a very unique one that will draw a very large crowd. And again, from reading your comments all along the way, I don't think it will be the "garage sale" bargain hunters that will be the primary buyers. Kind of a dumb thing to say, since I live in PA, but I'd love to be there!! (Of course, I'm a "garage sale" bargain hunter!! =) Does the house itself go up for auction the day of the sale? And will it be a one-day sale, or extend over two or more days?

Christine - how was your sister's visit? Did you do any special things? How much more do you have to do with the bathroom? Keep showing us the progress!!

emoticon Me - I'm still doing the same old, same old. We've had so much rain, the grass has never slowed down all summer. Canned peaches last week, and a few beans. Gardens didn't do the best this year. Too much rain actually. But some apples will be ready this coming week. August has family reunions, and birthdays for var. family members. Not much time it seems for anything else right now. ****But I'm making a list for fall....!! Maybe an auction or two!!!

Christine -- I know you're right. Donna (estate sale lady) did that at DH's parents, and I'm hoping she'll do that with my Mom's items that shouldn't be garage sale prices. I know it's to her benefit as well to get the top price she can as she will get 35% of it. As I say, I trust her. She also has quite a long list of people who attend her sales and are dealers and she knows what items they are looking for. Her email list is quite extensive. No way I could duplicate it even if I knew what everything was worth.

emoticon Whew! I'm using this emoticon to show a sigh of relief. We've had multiple days of company and, while I enjoyed seeing them, I'm ready to get back into my own little routine.

I am sorry that your mom's sale is taking so long Paula. I have helped my Mom with smaller sales and it is way harder than people think it is. Another thing is lots of people think an estate sale is like a garage sale, meaning everything is going to be sold cheap. My Mother would bring in other dealers in order to get the top price on certain things that those dealers specialize in, either paying them for price quotes or letting them pay top dollar.

I need to finish my DH's bathroom now that my sister is gone... back to the grind...

Kathy -- I'm praying that the auction will happen by Labor Day. But I'm not going to assume anything. I can't believe it's dragged out this long. The estate sale crew is over-committed I think, and so they're not devoting their full time to any one sale. I'll file that under "If I could only go back" .... and get a specific date from them. I was going on what they did with DH's parents' house, and it took them only about a month and a half. Another tricky part is that the lady in charge is a family friend of DH's and goes way back, so there is some diplomacy involved. She's respected in her business, and I don't think she's trying to cheat us, and since I've already called a couple of times that produced some greater activity from her, I think she knows I would like to have it happen ASAP. I've just got to "chill" ... and keep reminding myself that it will come about.

emoticon This is the emoticon I choose when I'm feeling kind of disheartened, but determined to keep on - in numerous areas of life right now! But it does give me a sense of accountability somehow.

Paula - you make me laugh!! And I needed a laugh - so thank you!!! I know a lady whose husband helps her with her hair-coloring, and when she told me that, I just looked at her in total amazement. That was honestly beyond my ability to imagine! Guess we will just have to come up with other reasons to love our guys!! Okay, Christine, you have that long thick hair - does your DH help with yours??

So Paula, do you have a date for the auction? Holidays are big for auctions around here, Labor Day would be a perfect time!

emoticon It's almost August! can't believe it! Thinking about what I hope to accomplish this month.

Kathy -- yes, isn't it a shame how fast the hair color goes. I've got it marked on my calendar every 3 weeks for the demi-permanent kind I use and apply myself. Such a chore, but sure do like the way it looks when it's done. If only I could train DH to help me with some of the application, especially on the back of my head. But I know better than to even try with that. When I broke my wrist about 10 yrs ago and tried to get him to help with applying a rinse.....that cured me of it.

I got an earlier start today too - I walked out to our mailbox, and took along my clippers and saw. Ww have some kind of crazy bush that is just taking over the sides along our lane, and I decided I would do some thinning out. Well, one led to another to another to another, etc. -- ended up working on our lane for about two hours! It felt wonderful!! (not that I didn't have more imp't things to be doing...) Mowed for about 2.5 hours then in the afternoon. emoticon

Glad you're feeling better, Christine. Was it all from the yard work?

Well, having pets in the house forces one to be a good housekeeper!!!

How am I feeling today? Well, it has nothing to do with being fit and organized, but it has everything to do with love and pride.

Sounds like a fun day planned with your old friend! I know about retirement! DH used to spend a lot of his time with his parents taking care of them until his Dad, then his Mom passed away a few years ago. Now he's here all day. In some ways it's nice (honey-do's emoticon ), but sometimes it would be so nice to have the house to myself during the day.

emoticon emoticon I'm determined to do better with my eating today!

@ Christine: Isn't taking a walk just the greatest way to start a day? I wish I started more of my days that way - I would get a lot more done in the day I'm sure!

@Paula: Kitchen - Organizing or cooking and baking? Either one - Good for you!!!

@ both of you: Thanks for the thoughts for us and son!! The hardest part about the goodbye this time was seeing his 5-yr-old daughter's sadness. But he promises that, though he doesn't know the exact timeframe, it will be less than 2 months. I can deal with that myself, and it's a safer region than he first thought. I'm very good with that part!!

emoticon to you both!!
