Ladies - I have a Costco membership, so anytime somebody wants to go there just let me know. I'm there at least once pretty much every week, sometimes more often.

What a chilly day - damp feeling too, so of course I'm aching from top to bottom. Decided that it felt like a soup day, so I made a big pot of chicken soup for dinner tonight. Mike's been coughing up lungs for the past few days, and Meaganne's been lousy too - hopefully the soup will make them both feel better!

Quiet day here again construction wise. The contractor had no idea that the plumbers had not come yesterday as planned - seems they won't get here now before Monday, but the electricians are supposed be here in the morning.

Just one more day of school for the kidlets - since it's Wednesday we're picking Emily up as usual, then I think going out for dinner with Jennifer as well as our friend who was here last Wednesday with her family.

Since Jennifer still has to be at the school all day on Thursday, Emily will be here with us.

Stay warm everyone!! Temperatures are supposed to start heating up again tomorrow afternoon!

Oh my what a difference in the weather, so strange. Colder up here around the lake, we all have coats on. Yesterday I could have stood out in the river to cool off. 9C

I heard costco also has these cool lights that are battery and sensor lights, when you walk in a room the light comes on, how neat that would be for the cabin.
Jo, do you still have a membership?

Sandi no stove inside until I find a new one. The old one is just to heavy and old Jim can not even take it apart to fix the thermostat because of rust on the parts. BUT it works lovey outside for now. We have a tarp on it.

I have created a nice Sanctuary in my back side yard, looking better everyday.

Hi Everyone...It's either extreme with the weather isn't it? So windy, & overcast I sent the hubby out to grill early in case of a downpour....& you know it will rain since we washed all the windows today...Class was good today...had a good turn out for a Tues. I hear you Jo...the flannels may be out tonight...

Kathy, he looks like a CHAMPION even with his name! About the Cridder Ridder sonic repellents...I would love to get my hands on them if they work as you say....our solars are now working but such a small light from them I practically have to position them in the woods themselves! I don't have a Cosco membership though so would need a good buddy to let me know & maybe take me...HINT, HINT....

Mary, did you get that stove hooked up indoors yet? How do you keep it dry outside when it rains? You must be such a SWEETY to get stung so often...Did you use Benadryl in case of a reaction? I hate the wasps & bees...even if they say how good they are...

Hi Judy, you've been quiet lately, girl...What's up with you?

Jo - I keep forgetting to post this picture - this is the stunning Collie we saw at the show last week. He's an American dog up here at stud and being shown. He's a Grand Champion in both the States as well as Canada now.

Sandi - I haven't noticed it there this year, but the last couple of years Costco has sold a gadget called Critter Ridder for around the $35 range which deters skunks and coons etc. from coming in the yard - 2 to a package. We've got 2 sets of them and it's really helped us with NOT having the darn things in our yard. It's solar powered, and emits a periodic buzzer type noise - not loud. If you can find them it would probably cure your problem!

Mary - You have both been busy little bees again today - glad that you were taking time for a rest! You deserved one!

Jo -Jennifer is counting down the seconds, but she has one more day than the kidlets - she has to work on Thursday tool.

No plumbers or anyone else here today. Not sure what happened. I left a message for Pete this evening, and this is the first time he hasn't returned my call within an hour or so.

Brinx' ultrasound went well this afternoon. The specialist said that all his organs look fine, which is awesome, but left her completely puzzled about the little 'blips' that showed up when he had the cardiac ultrasound a couple of weeks ago.... At least nothing bad showed up!!!.

Yes it was a little warm today.
Jim worked on getting the old gas stove hooked up outside and I did multitasking, more work in the garden, washed stuff that was sitting in the yard all winter, pulled weeds where I discovered bees build nest on the ground, (news to me) got stung 5 times, the little ba_tards.
I did a bit of staining on the side of the house where Jim had taken out a big long bench and a hanging cupboard.

Relaxing now before I do dinner.

feeling that heat...but my training continues...sent the hubby to the bulk barn for some new spices...made 5 new mixes up for my cooking additives...these are FREE additives so no worries what I choose...new foods included now as of this week...avocado, lentils in my salads regularly, fennel seed, cardamon, anise & red pepper flakes RULE in many mixes...(for my spicy mister) I find it fun to experiment...tomorrow is the results of this weeks non-stop training both with FOOD & MOVEMENT...I CAN FEEL THE SUCCESS WITHOUT STEPPING ON THAT SCALE!!!

Kathy, hope you won't have to cross your legs today! emoticon Glad you could enjoy your deck a bit....I love sitting & watching the birds on my back deck particularly as they DEVOUR the suet! Our phantom animal is a RACCOON...big & fat...I saw him at dawn this am. new solar sale lights DID NOT go on...after 2 days of charging prep...will give them until Thurs. before I attempt to return them...no wonder they were on sale...3.99 each...anyway cayenne & red pepper flakes are spread around my bush & flower beds...we got some rain last night so UNFORTUNATELY the animal repellent spray was for not!

You know it's hot when it's BUSY at 7 am. walking the neighbourhood...now my 40 minute walk gets me 3 miles!!! emoticon

Morning All!

Scorcher is putting it mildly - weather network says it will feel like 35 this afternoon with the humidex factor.

Jo - I wish my nails were like yours, but they constantly split or break just as they all start looking nice.

Did a little of the much needed weeding yesterday and "reclaimed" a portion of the deck - bet the reno guys will move stuff again, but at least it looks better for now.

Plumbers have not arrived as yet, so still have use of the bathroom!!! Brinx is off for his abdominal ultrasound this afternoon, so at least Meaganne and I should be able to use the washroom there if we need to.

Have a great day ladies, and KEEP HYDRATED!!!

Happy Sunday Gals...I posted here yesterday but it DISAPPEARED into thin air & I needed to eat dinner... emoticon anyway, I've caught up with you....

Kathy, Kathy, have a quiet restful Sunday indoors if you can...Sorry you have a loud, rude STINKY neighbour...that's how I feel about SMOKERS...the BBQ's & PEOPLE TOO...they have no consideration for others & wow if we complained we would be the problem, right? I think I would make sure the contractor put some EXTRA weekday noise close to their wall...if you get my drift!!! emoticon

So we have a PHANTOM woods trespasser (hopefully animal visiting us at night) Even after spraying my half eaten hostas, this am. I went out to a bird feeder dumped on the ground with the bottom removed...& a huge foot or hole beside a bush I didn't spray...I've set the solars on tonight...hope they work & wired all the bird feeders...so we'll see! Today I watered everything in case more drought days come... I also made 3 new dressings from my new site package...basic vinaigrette, avocado & ginger soy dressings...then added to this site for tracking...TOOK ME FOREVER...just about 1 hr...

Everything else is about the same...exercise & eating...my walks are SPEEDING up...took 5 minutes off my neighbourhood stroll...tomorrow the hubby is home so we'll see how we do!

To make it even more pleasant? The loud country music (which I do not enjoy) along with the BIG DRUNK kept going until well after 3:30 A.M. No point calling the police on this family, they just don't bother coming any more .

However it is all lovely and quiet over there today - my guess? They're probably all too hung over to do much of anything. emoticon emoticon emoticon Whatever the reason, I'm just enjoying the peace and quiet!!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday ladies!!

Jo - Not so quiet after, the neighbour (other half of the house) tore their deck apart today and rebuilt it - PLUS have a fire still blazing even now - all that old pressure treated lumber..... loud noise and foul smell to boot....

Since it was so hot / humid we stayed indoors with the air on, other than trying to let the dogs out whenever there seemed to be a lull nest door.

Still, it was REALLY nice to NOT have anything going on at our place for the day!!!

Hope everyone had a good Saturday!

perhaps a road trip...or a cool park...with bathrooms of course...Kathy...what about a splash pad...bet Emily would love that!

Mary, how are you today? How's that water situation? It sure is precious right about now, isn't it? I had to fertilize my plants today & that's when I noticed the deer have been back & nibbled a great amount of hosta stems etc...so I got some EXTRA solar lights to aim at the woods...sprinkled cayenne & bought some Cridder Ridder for wild & domestic animals & SPRAYED my flower beds...sure hope it doesn't KILL what's left! My rain barrel has been EMPTY for over a week now, with no rain in sight...

Yup, the car stuff is a Nissan thing we think...now that we understand what we think happened, it's a bit easier to swallow...Mary, the DR trip was after Judy's party day...we decided on June 10th to book...

How was Jo's birthday party? You all looked so cool & happy! Jo, I miss your step totals...I'm pushing along this week...my dashboard said 130,000...my classes & new DVD's along with walking & outdoor work is helping tremendously...I bought a BOCCE ball set on sale today at TSC...figure it's senior bowling, right!!! Anyway, planning to try on the long weekend!

Gee Kathy that will be a hard one. Maybe it won't take the whole day before you can actually use the bathroom.
I was thinking of you as I moved stuff around and found new places to put stuff. I will be happy when it is all done and we can go back to finishing the kitchen, but right now water is the priority. So Jim's days are spent getting the area ready for the hot water tank and the water barrels .
AND because we can't find a nice stove right now he is going to hook my old one up outside. Mainly I need it to make Panda's food.

I've never heard of something like that with a vehicle's brakes before - seems very strange to me. Is it something inherent to the make of car?

Sorry about the feeling weepy today Mary - that was me too, this afternoon. Just overtired here I think.

Long day again but apparently everything is pretty much ready for drywalling - oh yeah more dust!!!

Plumbers are supposed to be back on Monday to finish all the connection stuff for the new bathroom, but that means we will have NO bathroom at all for the whole day. Not just sure yet how we'll manage that one.....

Hi Everyone....

Sorry you are weepy, Mary!!! Wow, a king bed in a cabin, must be spacious! Did Jim get his logs moved? Fence work in this HEAT is HARD work? Is he REHYDRATING?

Kathy, the car saga is weird...Nissan brakes are strange indeed...There is a DIFFERENCE between our rental we had & our new car....now they redesigned it 6 months ago & after having 2 inspections as well as the body guys ALSO checking them, here is our conclusion. When you compress the brakes on our new car, unless you press them far down in an ALMOST firm motion...which results in a JERK stop you will gradually coast...it's a reaction that I felt the last time I drove it before the accident. The thing is you adapt to the rental which reacts differently when you brake...After I explained this sensation to my hubby, he immediately understand what I was saying & said he felt the same way....it's called adapting to the new car & the ACTUAL way it breaks...we conclude that my hubby delayed breaking the am. of the accident.& then coasted & ..slid in the rain over the curb & into the wall.

Had a great time yesterday...Dad enjoyed the afternoon...only 1/2 hr. wait at the border...no line at the Olive Garden & a WONDERFUL dinner...I planned ahead & ate responsibly & only added a tiny dessert to a pre-planned meal. (was about 2150 cal. instead of 1850 so I can live with that) We split the driving so EVERYONE enjoyed themselves. I'm THRILLED to say I BOUGHT absolutely NOTHING but helped Dad out with understanding what WATER shoes were....we've encouraged him to buy a pair before next winter's vacay in DR....

Today I was tuckered to start at 4:45 am. but another rip roaring exercise day...classes & a 45 minute walk that we finished in 37 minutes..the mister was motoring...lol...This afternoon my CIZE program came in the mail....so I did my first 30 minutes...man...am I in for a challenge...I was drenched in sweat so I think it will be money well spent...Their eating program is a bit different so I will concentrate on the exercise first...

They keep teasing us about some rain....we must be in a SUNSHINE bubble...

Gotta run...BBQ...grilled veggie pizza for dindin!!!

We had breakfast this morning then we went for a drive. If we don't do a drive before we start working we never stop the work to go. It was nice.
Then , when we got home Jim worked on moving more old wet logs from the side yard. He is getting it cleared for the fence he will put up to help the river know where to go when and if it floods again. LOL . I got enough room made in the bedroom to get the quess bed out and bring the king back in. Just kind of walking over the overflow of stuff. Enough work today. Fire time.

Morning everyone!

Jo - Hope your birthday was STUPENDOUS yesterday!! Glad you had a nice time at the Mandarin with Mary, Ann and Nancy (Amelia too) The photo of all of you is lovely.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Mary - How are things at the cabin? Are you still fixing / doing renovations there, or are you all done and able to just relax now if you feel like it?

Sandi - Have fun with your Dad! I've never been to the Olive Garden wither. Glad you have the car back finally! What was the final word on the brakes failing?

Judy - Glad you enjoyed your time off! Hope the Jeep issues got fixed.

We did get out to the dog show, but were rather disappointed since we went to see Collies - 10 were entered, but only 2 showed up, so there wasn't much to see. LOL However Meaganne finally got to see (in person) a stunning Blue male who is up here for the year from the States, He is absolutely heart stopping, breathtakingly stunning.

Monday was absolutely horrendous noise wise, it was jack hammer the basement floor (as well as outside around Mike's bedroom window) day. The plumbers were in and got everything ready upstairs so the washer and dryer could get moved upstairs.

Yesterday the contractor was here and cut 2 holes through the roof in the office for the vents for the washer and dryer. It sounded like the whole house was going to fall down around our ears..... The appliances came upstairs just after dinner last night, and then Meaganne tested the new laundry room out,and got all her laundry caught up.....

Today was supposed to be a "no guys here " day, but the contractor called about 9:30 this morning to say they would be here after all - tearing down the fence and gate as well as doing the ceiling framing in the upstairs bathroom.

AND... since it's Wednesday, we have Emily here after school and for dinner as usual, along with our friend and her 2 little ones as well. Oh... and we're also feeding the contractor lunch too. A BUSY BUSY BUSY day after all!

Kathy

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Good Morning.................. emoticon emoticon emoticon today, keep cool!!

Sandi sorry about the car issues, we know the feeling all to well. Less screen time isn't a bad thing. I have cut a lot of it out too, I don't even go to spark everyday anymore.

Tories Jeep had to go back to the dealer, they failed to do the E test so when we did, it came back with issues. We are not to happy. They did however come and picked it up and said they would work on it today.

Yes it was a great weekend off. Slept lots yesterday, guess I needed it.

Jo I do miss the air show, haven't seen one in years.

Not sure what I will do with the time alone, still looking for a hobby that we both can enjoy.

Mary, love the garden. DH plans to put more rocks around the pond area and get rid of the grass as the dogs keep killing the grass in that area.

Kathy I didn't even know there was a dog show here LOL. Hope you enjoyed. All that noise will be worth it and you will enjoy that deck again soon.

Have a great one all. Off to do some house work before work. emoticon

Hi Jo I only wrapped chicken thighs and potatoes nothing special. They were already getting a little defrosted in the freezer.
When I went for a walk to the front and along the river it was hot but not at my place.
Jim and Jimmy K went to Harv's to take his cat post back and they said it was real hot up there.

They also picked me up some more big rocks for the garden.

Hi Everyone,
Early sparking...hubby asleep...will get out early for my walk...

Kathy, you sure are in full swing with your reno...never had carpenter ants but there are some interesting BIG bugs in the woods...that cardinal that got stuck inside our deck was too up close & personal for my liking...any idea of how long your reno is going to take? Are they keeping to the schedule they gave you? Enjoy the dog show & meet up with your Floridian friend...this weather will be just like at home for her...

Judy, you will LOVE the empty nest when it comes...at first the quietness may seem strange but afterall you have pooches so it won't be TOO quiet!!! It is exciting to watch the kids start their own adventures & see them gain that independence. What a learning curve for every one.

Jo, what will you do when the Gkids are BOTH in school? Go to an exercise class..they have LOW impact to begin...everywhere in London...the best part is it's FREE....oh wait...yes, it's FREE!!!! Anyway, whatever you do, find a NEW experience to try out1

Mary, I remember all the steps & work I did moving...You are catching up to me buddy...enjoy this hot, hot weather!

For me today, remembering my daughter's birth 36 years ago...a little of this & that...just tinkering around with nothing major planned.
