We have only had flurries. But more is supposed to come. It is bitter cold again today. I have finally gotten out the real heavy winter coats.

Company last night helped me with some computer pictures. I think they add so many things to these programs. I just want to fine the important stuff. Like Rotate the picture. upload the pictures from the camera, or cut. My friend is going to give me a few lessons in January when we are not so busy.

GLad you have an easy day at lunch. When do you have the break? Do you just have next week off?

Meeting Sandy for exercise this morning so I am on my way.

Well, I managed to hold my own, weight wise, over the weekend. Makes me happy!

Are you getting the snow, Sue? They're calling for 6 inches by Wednesday afternoon here. Bob & Holly will be heading to Pittsburgh for that car tomorrow...

Pizza day at school...should be an easy one...

Glad yesterday is over. The luncheon was a success. Several didn’t come. I don’t think I can do it next year. We had a lot of ham left over. I have a big ham bone too. So soup will be on the menu soon.

Today is bitter cold. I got out the winter jackets. Frost but no snow. Today I am making pork roast. We have company coming. The house is warmer when I have the stove on.

We are going to Pittsburgh next Sunday to our niece. She lives in Swissvale. She goes to her moth’s and stepfathers’s for Christmas. They live in Slidell Louisiana. Her broth is th nephew with the two children that I talk about. Anne never wanted to leave Pittsburgh after she graduated from Pitt. Dave drives when we get there. We don’t go into the city part anyway.

Oh, I bet those kids were having a wonderful time! We haven't seen any here in Pa. I do not like snow...unless I can stay in and look at it thru the windows...

I got home from work yesterday and had to make a trip east of Pittsburgh for our daughter to look at a car. Her phone GPS took us thru Pittsburgh! I do not like Pittsburgh! My GPS brought us home by way of the turnpike. I would rather pay than ever go thru that again. We got home late and I hadn't had lunch or supper. So I had a bologna sandwich and pop tart for supper. Real good, huh? I just had to get something in me quick. I don't even buy pop tarts! It was something Haylee had here. And guess what? They really aren't as good as I remember...I haven't missed anything. By the way, she's going down to pick up her car on Tuesday...and I'm not going...

Have a wonderful weekend, all...

First Christmas luncheon Today. I have to be careful. This is the group I have been with for a lot of years. There are only 6 of the original 12 left. Through the years several have brought their daughters and sisters or other family members. There will be about 16 or 18 today. It use to come to my house but it grew too many.

Our grandniece and grandnephew saw snow yesterday. They had a snow day in Slidell Louisiana. That was a real weather surprise. We got pictures of the kids making a small snowman.

Up early to be sure I have my things ready to go today.
Enjoy the weekend!

Yes you need an Elf on a Shelf. I sent the last Wednesday. Today I did ham. There will be 16 for luncheon tomorrow. At least that was the number I was given. We have had some bring extra family members. I am having it at my church fellowship hall.

I have two batches of cookies to bake sometime today. The sewing put me back a bit.

We had snow flurries but none stuck on the ground.

Prayers for all

At the nursing home where Bob plays, the churches step in in December and bring Christmas music for the residents. He usually has a few weeks where he doesn't have to go. When I was a kid, our church went every week and sang to the elderly. Not too many churches do that today.

The children are getting wild already, knowing Christmas is coming. I need a giant Elf for on a shelf in my dining hall. Maybe they would simmer down if they thought he was watching...

Snowing here in Pa...

We have played the last nursing homes for a while. We do not play in Jan. Feb. I am glad for the break.

Cleaning today. Working on the Elf on a Shelf things threw me off a bit. Things clutter up when I do that.

Busy today.

Still working on some shopping and cards to out of state people. I am not sending too manyt this year.

Today i finish the rest of my Elf on a shelf for our grandniece and grandnephew. It has been fun. We never had any grand children live near. My daughter didn’t have any children.

Today starts Music for 3 days. My house is as decorated as it is going to get.

I meet Sandy this morning at the gym. So.... this is short.
Blessings to all.

Did not make it to the Christmas decorations yesterday. Maybe next weekend.

Church was wonderful this morning. Our worship leader preached, and she was GOOD! I really enjoyed it!

Lazy day for the rest of today.

Today we will load the organ in the car again as we play Monday and Tuesday at the nursing homes. So..... Monday starts the busy for this month.

I have to finish sewing a couple more outfits for the Elf Rainbow at our Nephew's. We have their Christmas things to send Dave does the wrapping. He is very neat. I want to send the outfits for the Elf and the packages by Wednesday.

Where does time go. I just seem to keep pushing and get no where.

As soon as this load of laundry is dry, I'm going upstairs to go thru the Christmas decorations. It will keep me away from the kitchen. Weekends are the hardest for me...

I love to go to craft shows. Bob enjoys them, too, because it gives him ideas for his wood working.

This cat is driving me crazy today. She wants in the basement and she's not allowed down there. Must be a mouse down there. She would come back up with dirt on her feet and covered in cobwebs. Our basement is mostly unfinished and we don't use it except for the furnace and water heater, and Bob's table saw. I, myself, have probably only been down there 25 times in 25 years. We don't even store anything down there. Scary...

Hope you all are enjoying your day...

Dave cleaned out the gutters yesterday. He has taken the mower off and put the snow plow blade on the tractor. I guess we are ready for the white stuff.

Heading for the gym this morning to meet my friend Sandy. It is so much more fun to go when there is a friend there.

Prayers for you to have a good day.

Beautiful day! I'd like this weather all winter!

My eating is back on track again. Boring but on track. I've had salads for lunch the last 2 days and I'm tired of it already...

Today I’d a fun day. I am taking some of the floppy disks to a Music friend. She just got a used Lowrey organ. It is a Royals. I use to have one. I have disks that play Christmas music. I am going to make her copies and show her how to play them.

My group that plays the nursing homes made a Christmas CD and that is copied and ready to give out.

Choose to be happy today.
Prayers for everyone.

Beautiful day with sunshine. Dave is putting the plow on the tractor. He took the mower off. This is the end off this month so I guess it is good to be ready.

Not too busy today. Kiwanis meeting tonight. My night to bring cupcakes. I just finished icing them. We celebrate people with birthdays this month.

Hop to get the living room windows cleaned today and the sliding glass doors in the dining room.

Enjoy the day

Went looking at wedding dresses today with Holly. I don't think they make anything modest anymore. She knows the style she wants, and it looks good on her, and her size now, though.

Later, I went house hunting with a friend from work. She's a recently single mom with 2 little boys. I think she found the one she wants. Now I'm home relaxing...as long as the phone doesn't start ringing...

Back on track. Bob came home with Little Debbies and I told him to take them and the cooler to the garage. He can keep his sweet treats out there...and he did...

Have a wonderful day, all...

Good to hear from you Liz. Sounds like you had a great family gathering. emoticon

We are all trying to get back on plan. There are a lot of food involved activities starting this next month.

My work out Saturday was cleaning out the dead plants in the flower beds. It was a nice day and Dave put up the outside lights.

I am on schedule today and meet my friend at the gym this morning. So off I go.

It was a wonderful Thanksgiving! My only child got engaged to a wonderful man. His name is Bob, too! So we have 3 Bobs now...crazy! She had no idea he was going to propose. He came by the house on Tuesday night to ask for our blessing...and he got it. I've never seen her so happy, other than when her children were born. God really does give second chances. Her first marriage was so full of turmoil. They were so young. I still love my ex son in law very much, but he chose his path, and we pray he finds his way back to the Lord.

Not much leftover, thank the Lord, but SOMEBODY left a whole apple pie on my counter...Bob better make it disappear...any Bob will do...

We enjoyed dinner and food went home with them. I still have more to put away and clean up. My daughter is coming this morning to decorate for Christmas. We are doing the living room and dining room and the front doors. The tree will be later. She does the ladder things. It is not easy getting older.....things just don’t seem to be easy to do.

Good weather for all traveling.
Enjoy the weekend and the leftovers.

Wow! Another busy taco nacho day. One more day and I'm off for a few...yea!!!

Sue, my husband just started singing at another local nursing home. He enjoys it a lot. He sings at one out of town, but he visits in this one quite frequently. So, he figured if he's gonna make the trip up town, he'd see if he could do some singing and witnessing for the Lord. Last Friday was the first time, and he really enjoyed himself.

Not much else going on here...just work and home. Hope you all are enjoying sunshine also...

Wow!!! That was a big job. Bless you for feeding the children. Our school never changed the lunch hour for early dismissal. I know how busy you were.

Today we play this afternoon at Pt. Marion PA. Nursing home. It is the last until Dec 5 th. I have a few more things to get ready tonight. Yesterday I baked cherry pie and pumpkin pie. I want to set up the stuffing and make a jello salad.

Our schools are out now for deer seaso. Most of the bus drivers hunt. I think they took the week off. No bus past the house today.

I went to work today thinking it was pizza day and found out it was our Thanksgiving dinner. Wow! Talk about shifting gears! These big meals are hard on the body. 330 servings of potatoes, 8 gallons of gravy, and 300 servings of corn...that's just my part. We also had turkey, stuffing and apple crisp, and rolls. I didn't make those, someone else did. Rush, rush, rush...we're also having parent-teacher conferences and early dismissals, too, so we have to be ready to serve almost an hour early. The blessing part? I got a lot of exercise today, and it's over... Sooooo thankful it's over...

Have a lovely day, all... emoticon

Vicky, I love to sit in the living room mornings and watch the school bus go by. I always enjoyed my work BUT. It tired me out. I missed the kids for a while. It felt strange good to the store during a weekday.

Our church filled 35 baskets of food yesterday. It will be delivered today to the center to give ipout for Thanksgiving.


Now... to start this week right and head out to exercise.

Sue, it sounds like some of your birds have already headed for their winter home. I keep thinking, "Two more winters and I'm done working." No more going out at 6am to shovel the snow off my car or wasting the gas warming it up for 15 minutes. Then I can really enjoy winter...from inside the house looking out, knowing I'm not going to have to think about falling down the back steps getting to the car. I really do dislike winter right now...

Almost time to leave for church. Enjoy your Sunday, all...

Today our church is making up 30 or more food baskets. I have my donation already in the car.
We do this again at Christmas.

Your church is thinking ahead. That Is great. Your church sounds like a great place to worship.

Rain, wind, and cold here. Still no snow. My bird feeder was not totally empty this morning.

Blessings to you and a happy week ahead.

Mmmmmm, coffee...I'm finally having my second cup. Bob & I just got back from a seminar on how to handle an active shooter situation. Pastor wanted some of us from the church who are licensed to carry firearms to attend. With recent situations being what they are, we need to have a plan of action to get out church members and children out safely. It was interesting, but I pray we never have to react to a threat like that...

Okay, now, after such a serious start to my day, the rest of the day just has to be fun, okay? Have a lovely day, all...

It is a dark rainy Saturday morning. I have coffee (I know I can’t drink but a little. The acid in coffee and sodas bother my stomach) . The coffee smelled sooo good. I went out and filled the bird feeder during a break in the down pour.

Ann it was so good to hear that you are doing well. I know it has been a huge adjustment. Moving things and getting set up. Prayers continue from here for strength and healing. It was so good to hear you have good support.

Today I have a list but have just been sitting here on Sparkpeople. Next devotions and prayer. Then the list for today.

Vicky ... SNOW!!! Not yet here but the temperature is dropping.
Blessings

So good to hear from you, Ann, and to catch up. You and Terry are in our prayers. God bless you both.

It's Friday and I have no plans. Yippee!! I need a break from running.

Nothing much else going on...

Hello everyone: I have a few minutes before going grocery shopping. My husband Terry has been home from Parkwood Hospital for a week today. It is good to have him home. Wow, I am really busy now. For a week I have made every meal at home and made really good and healthy meals, with the exception onf one day when he had two appointments. We ate out for breakfast and lunch on that day. One big difference is I really try to get more veggies in, rather than just salads. My husband has lost 2 kilos. Good for him. I sure hope it helps me too. Maybe when we get more settled in this new way of life, I can start going out to things more. It is quite a thing to get paratransit. You have to give three days notice. However, what a wonderful help it is. Cost is only one regular bus ticket!

My husband really enjoys being home although we have moved a lot of stuff (furniture) out of the way and given some away, it is still a challenge for him with the electric wheelchair, banging into stuff. We will get it fine tuned soon. He wears his prosthetic leg for a prescribed time each day. I think he has to get back on track with his exercises. We have home care with a PSW every day and a nurse has been twice and will come every two weeks.

Boy, oh boy thanks to our neighbours and friends and family for supporting us. We have had help moving furniture while Terry was still in hospital. A ramp and a ramp extension installed. We got a manual wheelchair and a commode for free from the Consituary Club! We have paid to rent a hospital bed and other stuff. Good thing year end is coming and we can get back on our income tax some of the monies that we have spent.

Our church family has given us a gift of money twice! This was to help pay for parking at all the hospitals (Terry has been in and out of hospitals since July 26th)

We are blessed. I know your Thanksgiving is coming up and have a wonderful one.

Ann

Be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend. Give out grace to others and you will receive grace back.

Rushed home from work to get ready for my appointment at the eye doctor's. My left eye has changed a lot, but my right is still the same. she says it's not unusual, so I'm not worried. She dilated my eyes and now they feel swollen and sore. Got new contacts and ordered new glasses, well actually, new lenses in my old frames. I never wore the last glasses, so why not recycle the frames? I have two other pair in the drawer like brand new. Maybe next time...

Stopped by to see Mom&Dad while we were in the area. Had a nice visit and talked about what to bring on Thanksgiving. She insists on no desserts, but I'm making a jello fluff salad with mandarins and marshmallows. I want something light...

Have a lovely evening, all. It's snowing here...

Wow! November is half over already! Time is flying by, but after the first of the year, it will seem to slow down again. Betsy and I are training Carol, a coworker, to do both of our jobs, just incase either one of us are absent, so she can handle either position. She fits in well with us! We laugh a lot!

Finally got some new batteries for my scales. It was nice to find I was pretty much where I was before the batteries died!

Sue, I have a long weekend off starting with Thursday and going back on Tuesday. I can't say I care much for the look of my paycheck after the holidays!

Stay warm, everyone...

Well, today I am on slow. This day I need to finish cleaning carpets. I know it is November but the fall decorations are going to be put away. My daughter will help me decorate for Christmas on th Friday after Thanksgiving. It takes me longer to get everything done so early start to cleaning up.

Vicky, I hope you get a few days off for Thanksgiving. Our schools close. Most of the bus drivers are Hunters.

Going out only to visit my friend that had the knee replacement on Monday.

Monday and a new week to plan. I am up early and heading to exercise. It is so gd to have a friend to meet me there and visit a bit. The time goes faster and it seems easier.

Vicky good that you needed smaller size. I need to take n some thugs now. I picked up one of the cats. I only carried him a short way BUt... I realized that is about the pounds I have dropped. The difference on my legs was really noticeable. With less weight I can walk better. Today one of my friends is having knee replacement surgery. I am praying it goes well.

Prayers for all.

Welcome back, Rose!!! Of course, we remember you! I'm so glad you're here!

I'm up and ready for church and waiting on Bob...and the coffee maker...

Got my replacement jeans in the mail this week. I still could have gone another size smaller! This is why you go to the store and try things on, my mother would tell me! I'm going to keep them anyway. They are comfortable...new Thanksgiving dinner pants...LOL...

Enjoy your Sunday, all...

Welcome back Rose. Glad to hear from you. You are still on my prayer list. I have to keep a list or I forget someone. Cooking a turkey is not too hard. I no longer stuff the bird but make the stuffed separately.

Vicky when you retire it is still just wonderful to be able to enjoy being at home.

Today we have a meeting after the service. Our church fixes baskets of food for a program that give those in need. We far trying for 30 baskets this year.

We load the organ today to play this week. We play three days.

Hi everyone! Have you forgotten who I am? It's been a busy fall, and looks like it will get busier. Have started Christmas shopping as I don't like to wait til the last minute! I don't like all the crowds!! Most of it is taken care of, just have a few more gifts to get. I am making a turkey this year( only the third in 28 years of marriage) so that should be interesting. We usually get invited to someone else's place for dinner. I decided to go all out and just eat at home. Well, we have snow on the ground...anyone else? God's blessings on all of you. Rose

Not much going on here Typical Saturday for us anymore. I remember when we ran all weekend long. I don't miss it much. Maybe when I retire, I'll feel more like getting away from the house. Now, especially since it's getting colder, I don't want to go anywhere!

I'm thinking about staying home on Thanksgiving. If my parents weren't so elderly and still living on their own, I probably would. My sister and her family are going and she and Mom decided they don't want any desserts. Well, I guess I'll have mine when I come home...

Have a lovely, relaxing weekend, all...

Frost last night. The cats won't go out this morning. It is a good day to just do things around the house.

We have to pick up someone and take them to a lunch meeting. Then do some errands There are always things to do. I don't understand how people can be bored. Yesterday I did get some things done and enjoyed ordering a couple Christmas things. This year I want to be well on the way by Dec. 1. Last year I got too tired.

This next week is busy so today I have the house all caught up. Sandy and I are settled on meeting at 10 am Monday and Thursday to exercise at Lakeside gym. I have that on the calendar/ We chose 10 because the winter roads can be really crowded and bad earlier in the morning.. So we will see how long we can keep this going.

Prayers for all

This weather has a lot of people sick. We are okay. My nose is sore and running because the pine trees are dropping needles I am allergic to pine. Our next home will not have pine trees. The rag weed I don’t think I can never get rid of the ragweed.

Sandy and I did exercise this morning, whew! It was warm insi the place. Then I went to the store. There were a few bargains. That is always work

Hope you got some rest and relaxed.

Rough day today and I'm glad tomorrow is Friday. Everyone at school has some form of cold or flu. Praying you all stay healthy.

Got to go visit my friend Marge last night. We got into the Word and really encouraged and enjoyed each other. I'm so thankful for friends like her.. and Gail, who went along!

Not much else is going on. Tonight is a good night to relax...

Oh! Wonderful that they were there. I will pray they come back and also for your grandson. That is an important age.

Glad to have my stuff in. We pushed early because we were away. Today is cold raining and dark. I have music this morning so I will give myself a push and get my coat.

I started a plan with a friend to meet at the gym Monday and Thursday mornings. We went for coffee after exercise yesterday. It really started my week.

Stay well and warm.

Yes, by the weekend it's supposed to be in the 30's here. I'm not ready for it. I've been waiting for a dry day to put my patio set away and now it looks like it might get snowed on. We have an in service day today, so I'd better take care of it today...rain or not...

Holly says they enjoyed the service Sunday and are coming back next week. I was happy to see my grandson with them. He's 17 and trying to be his own man. Well, I told him he won't be a real man without Jesus in his heart and life. And that's all I'm gonna say to him about it. It's up to the Holy Spirit to speak to him, not me.

Hope you all are enjoying your day...

We had a bakery by a local lady but Duncan Donuts built closer to their store. It wiped her out.

I agree with you. It would be nice if your family were all at the same church. We have several mult generation families. Eric is in his 90’s his daughter and family helped him get to church Sunday. It was so good to see them all there. Many families do not live in the same area as their children so today that is not happening as much.
Enjoy your family.

Last night I put the heavy blanket on the bed. I gave in to the cold is here.

Prayers for all

Krispee Kreme are good too, but there is a local family owned company called Clark's Donuts that we prefer. Trying to keep the local guy in business. Well, I'm not much help because I try not to get them very often, but when I want a donut, it's Clark's! Enough donut talk from me...

My daughter and her boyfriend are coming to our church this morning. They've been checking out 3 churches in 3 different counties! Today is our turn! They want to have this settled before they get married. I would love to have them be a part of our church, but they need to be where God plants them...

Have a wonderful Sunday, all...

Vicky, glad you are getting better. Duncan Donuts 🍩 don’t impress me either. I do like Krispe Kreme but we only get them when we are away.

It is good to get back on track and go to our church today. It will be nice today. Then solid rain forecast with a frost predicted.

This week my friend and I will meet at the gym early on Monday and Thursday. We are partners to support each other. I am so glad to have her join me. We each work separately but we know the other is there. Good support!

Blessings to all. Stay well and warm.

Hey, all. No plans for today. Just gonna take it easy. A little light housework, the stuff Bob doesn't get thru the week, like dusting and clearing off flat surfaces, watering plants, that kind of stuff.

Hade my first donut from the new Dunkin' Donuts in town. No threat to me. I am NOT impressed. That's a good thing. I probably won't have another...

Can't wait to get back to church tomorrow. I've missed the last 2 weeks from being sick. Still have some coughing, but at least I'm able to breathe better!

Enjoy your weekend, all...

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE,

MY SON IS JOKER AND MY DAUGHTER IS CRUELA DEVILLE. THEY'RE EXCITED!! WE HAVE DECIDED NOT TO GO TRICK OR TREATING THIS YEAR AS A FAMILY. WE ARE GOING TO WATCH A MOVIE WITH POPCORN, CANDY AND HOT CHOCOLATE. HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERBODY AND GOD BLESS!!

Funny thing happened about an hour ago. I've been feeling pretty miserable(worked half a day and had to come home, and I've just called off for tomorrow), been feeling sorry for myself, so I thought I'd call my friend, Violet and have her pray for me. I got up to get my cell phone to look her number up, and the house phone rang and it was her! God sure knows what and who, we need. I just started to cry and had to explain to her that I was honestly just going to call her. She prayed and I'm feeling so much better! I got to pray for her, too. It's so important to listen when God puts someone on our hearts.

My weight has dropped a few pounds. Of course, it would, since I finally ordered new jeans! If they're too bug, like the last ones, I send them back too...

Hope you all are staying warm and dry...

Vicky

Hi! Vicky, Ann and Liz. It is good to hear from you.
Vicky I am praying that you are feeling better

Liz there is no easy wat for busy people. I am always busy. I have to plan what I eat and stick with it. This trip I have been over my calories a few times. I know that there will be a gain because I have eaten several things that were extra. You may have some fluid build up if you are stuffy.Prayers for you to get to feeling better and then you can work on dropping the pounds

Ann it is wonderful to hear of Terry’s progress. That is go great, What a long but successful therapy and exercise program prayers continue for both of you. It will be good to have him get home for a few days. Rest up for that because you will be busy. Prayers continue for both of you.

Our music group meets next Thursday to set up for Nov and Dec. songs. We have sent to Jean’s memorial at her church. She really gave up and we would have hoped for more support for her. She is the fourth person in our grope to pass. We realize we are aging out of doing this community work in the nursing homes.

Dave and I have one mores day of vacation here. Tomorrow we drive to Aunt Barbara’s for a few days. Then back to the busy life at home. I do feel rested and will try to slow dow some at home.

Hi! So i fell off the wagon again! I was doing so good exercising, then i got sick and I'm still stuffy after 2 weeks. Ugh! My clothes are getting tight again. And they were just about feeling better. HELP!! I don't know what else to do! Any Suggestions for someone with a busy schedule?

Hello everyone:

I have read your posts back to the beginning of October and I want to say my condolences to Sue for her friend Jean. You have been there for her and it was such a comfort to her, I am sure. I hope you enjoy your trip to view the old houses and museums. Vicky, I hope you are feeling better soon. Hopefully Betsy was able to handle the serving with the assistance of someone else on the cash.Thinking of you today Liz! You are an overcomer, my friend. To everyone else. a big hello....Thanks for your kind words in your posts for my husband Terry.

I was invited to attend Terry's Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy sessions this morning at Parkwood Hospital. First of all, he walked around the amputee gym. He had completed three times around the gym with his first temporary prosthetic leg.

Then he had Electric Wheelchair training. This gym was set up to show the different kinds of ground cover one might expect to see out in the real world away from the hospital.

He went up and down several different kinds of ramps successfully. Severe angle ramps, then he was instructed to ride over gravel. Next an area was set up to replicate muddy, squishy ground .. He was then sent to an area where he had to open a door and ride over a threshold. Finally he went up a large ramp that was covered in a rug and it was in the auditorium ...success yet again!

We are looking forward to the first or second weekend in November when he can come home for a weekend visit.

My eating has been sporadic. Not eating breakfast sometimes, having frozen dinners, sometimes I do make meals at home for supper. I aim to do better soon.

Blessings and love to my friends at Sparkpeople.

Ann

Be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend. Give out grace to others and you will receive grace back.

Oh, I love looking at old homes. Enjoy your tour.

I took a sick day today, something I rarely do, but, yesterday was rough. My throat is raw and my chest feels like there is a cement block in it. This, too, shall pass... Betsy is serving for me and someone else will cashier. I've already gotten one phone call from her, poor girl, and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last...

Have a lovely day, all...

Good you are feeling better. Hope today goes well. I know the children will love taco nacho day. I keep telling you many of them come to school for breakfast, lunch, and recess with friends. One year two small boys in first grade stood in line far their busses. They were on different ones. They were going home for the weekend. They looked at each other and ran together to hug each other before they go on the busses. I really liked working in the schools.

I still go to lunch with several of the cooks that worked with me from 1976 to 1999. They are (Jane, Mary, Pat, Emma (93 years old) , Darla and me left of the 12 that worked for years together. We have lunch the second Saturday of the month at a restaurant.

Some of the teachers have a book club that I go to when I can. They meet at night on Tuesday’s and that is often a conflict with our Kiwanis meeting.

Today I am not hurrying for anything.
Sue.

I know I cannot have any artificial sweeteners, but I'm thinking that I had way too much sugar Friday and Saturday Believe me, I haven't had any since then. I am day 2 into my "no added sugar" fast. I used to get bad migraines when I was younger before they invented artificial sweeteners, but never knew why. Right now I don't even want anything sugary...this is good.

I had a good day at work, even though my ribs are still sore from being sick. Tomorrow is taco nachos so I'd better be on my game!

Start relaxing now, Sue. That's what you're there for!!!

Prayers for you today. Praying far strength, calm day, and you feeling better

I crashed at midnight when I had all our things put away. Two days of getting up at 4 am and going to bet really late got to me. I woke up at 8 in the same position I started. I am a little stiff today. It is foggy this morning. I had hoped to have my coffee on the porch.

Do you know what triggers your migraine? I read an article here on Sparkpeople about that.

Prayers for you today.
Sue.

Well, after that wonderful healing service on Saturday night, I woke up in the middle of the night
with a super migraine, complete with all the bells and whistles, (cold sweats, throwing up, etc...) and didn't get to go Sunday morning. Not surprisingly, it all passed about 5pm...thank You, Lord! I decided to go to work today, even though I'm still shaky. This, too, shall pass...

Should be cooler in the kitchens today...

Glad you can still go to the cottage. There may be s few more nice weekends.

If one is off for medical leave and one left that is really a tough schedule.

We left Home at 6 am and stopped outside of Charlotte SC to visit. We got here at about 6:45 pm. I got us settled in and dinner. This is my week to rest. We have a nice corner apartment.

I will have more time to write this week. This summer has just worn me out.

We don't have as many kids buying breakfast and lunch as we used to and it cuts into our bottom line, so they expect us to cut costs somehow...apparently this is how. We have one girl who as been off for medical leave but she won't be back until after the first of the year. Gonna be a little hectic until then...

Cottage is closed, but we can still go up, as long as we carry our water with us. We also have a little porta potty that we used when we went camping, to take along. They always leave the electric on and I have a small heater up there.

Got my shirt and jeans I ordered. Everything is too big, so it's back in the package to go back. I'm not real crazy about ordering clothing online for that very reason. It's trial and error when it comes to sizing...

Going to a healing service at the church tonight. Hope you all have a wonderful evening...

This summer went fast. You didn’t get much time at the cottage. We really didn’t relax when we went away. ITere was always someone to take care of or do something.

Today was the pancake breakfast and I-am tired. It was busy and I think we did well.

Tomorrow We drive. I hope to get on line before we leave for a minute or two. It will be late about diner time otherwise.

Why won’t they replace the one leaving. That means you all have to cover her part of the job. You will be tired. That is such an important part of the school day for all children.

I'm so glad you get to go back! Enjoy your timer there. Bob & I are going up to close the cottage. Doesn't seem like we spent much time there at all this year. We spent a lot of it building the bedroom on, not relaxing. The CMA rally at the camp took up 5 or 6 nights, but that wasn't really relaxing either. Next year, CMA is holding it somewhere else, so I can use those extra days to sit on the porch swing with a good book and a cup of coffee...

Did I tell you one of the3 new girls quit already? Just found out today that they aren't going to replace her...busy, busy...

Gotta get moving...later, all...

Outside to rake up leaves and small branches. I an bringing in some plants too. We will be gone next week. Ian will be here with the cats and watch the house. Helen will come on Monda and Tuesday. We are glad that the resort gave us the week since Irma flooded the Island the week we had paid for.

Today we set up for the Kiwanis pancake breakfast tomorrow. That will be busy. Then Sunday we leave for Hilton Head for the week. I will have my computer with me and I will have time to Spark along with out being in a hurry.

Glad Bob is better. I am sure the days on your feet get your feet hurting. Not many realize that jobs in school are very demanding. Remember many children come to school for the breakfast and lunch more than those that come to learn. Your job is really important.

Today I am going to the gym to work off stress. Then I hope to get more done here at home.

Just home from work. Feet are really tired today. We served French toast and sausage as our main entrée and out of 91 lunches, 83 of them were the main entrée! Keep in mind, this is just Kindergarten and first grade. The high school ran out of the main entrée, but they also serve pizza, salads, burgers, chicken sandwiches, and soup. Lots of choices...

Bob is doing better. I give God all the credit though...

Hope you all are enjoying cooler temps. I know I am...
