Just got back after a couple of days up at the cottage. It rained so much I actually got bored. It did stop long enough for us to have a campfire both nights. It's usually pretty quiet there but a few of the cottages are getting new roofs so there were Amish crews back and forth. My eating has been off track for a few days, too, so back to work...

Yesterday was our 25 th wedding Anniversary. We have been so busy these few days. My brother and his wife come Thursday and stay until Saturday. I am almost ready. The house is as clean as I can get it.

I have desserts baked and in the freezer. So food is coming along for when the company comes.

I still have somee outside work to finish today. We have Kiwanis meeting Tonight so I don't have to cook.

Thanks for being here, too, Sue!

Grands spent the night last night. My daughter has begun dating again, after more than 7 years of being single. He's a nice man who goes to out church. hey went to the races in New York and she knew she wouldn't be getting back until the middle of the night, so if they stayed here, she wouldn't worry about them.

Beautiful day out today. Bob is checking out a new church closer to home. I usually let him go first...

Have a lovely day all...

Me too! I don't get on each place every day. I have had music group playing out two days, lesson one day, and a whole day at a workshop. It is an hour plus drive to Greensburg to the store. We are working inside and out to be ready for summer and my brother and wife will be here a few days next week.

I have scrubbed my living room carpet, dining room carpet and the indoor outdoor carpet on the porch. Plus garden work. It takes me longer these days to get it all done. We had rain a lot and I am late with spring cleaning.

Tomorrow is our 25th wedding anniversary. That was why we took the trip in February to go through the Panama Canal. I am glad we did it then because it is hard to get more in now. We went to dinner and a movie yesterday.

Prayers still for all Blessings to you Vicky. Thanks for keeping this going.

I wonder sometimes about not posting anymore, especially on days like today when the ads are so busy it takes forever to load and then doesn't want to let me post, but every now and then, an old member will pop in. I check in every day, but I don't always have time to wait so I can post. We also have a LOT of new members who have NEVER posted, not even to introduce themselves. Why join a team if you're not going to join in??? I don't get it...

Tomorrow is music workshop in Vittone's Music Store in Greensburg PA.

Last night for the church social it rained hard just as we were to eat. I had made Piineapple upside down cake. There were only a couple slices left. Tonight we were to have rain so I waited but ended up watering my plants tonight anyway.

We seem to have few besides us on this thread. Should I just stop?

Vicky I know it is doable but it is still a struggle. I have gone up and down the same 5 pounds now fro too long. I have tarted back on watching the protein and also fiber.

This is just to read for fun. We had a lady give a talk at our retired school employees group; Daily Practices for Sensible Living.
Mondays are for Compliments

Praying for you and for me to stay strong this summer and drop those pounds. ]

I weighed in this morning and I finally get to move my ticker down. My goal is to get 20 pounds off before I go back to work. It's do-able but I'll have to work for it.

Another Sunday gone and Monday is here again. This weekend I got all but a small space planted with annuals. I need to finish that tomorrow. The yard looks good.

Our church social is this week on Wednesday night. I hope it is a pleasant evening because we like to be outside.

We will have company next week. My brother's birthday was June 16. He was 84. Thhey have not driven over for a couple years. They are planning to drive over here next week Wednesday and stay through Saturday. I want to get more done before they come. I have started planning food. He is diabetic. The good thing is that we will be eating healthy.
.
Prayers for all.

The younger people have always just done for themselves and never worked as a group. You have to personally ask them to work on something.

Today the rain held off and I got flowers planted. It is late for me but too much happened to keep me from outside work.

I have dinner planned and ready. Chicken Tacos tonight. Tomorrow I will finish inside things. We usher Sunday so I want to have everything done. We load the organ on Sunday to play nursing homes on Monday and Tuesday.

Blessings to you and enjoy the weekend

That would be exciting, to make a Christmas CD! You talk about "aging out of this activity." That is what is happening to our CMA chapter. We have a lot in their 70's, a few in their 80's and up until last month, one couple in their 90's who were still riding motorcycle. He went home to be with Jesus last month. Younger people have other things to do, I guess...

Boy, this first week off work has flown! I hope it slows down soon...

Well, I am so grateful that our bodies heal so well. My face is now only a little yellow. I still have the bruse on my leg but the bump is gone and it is not as sore. Now I hope to get back to exercise.

Our Kiwanis Club event went well last night. We didn't have as many people as we would have liked. Since I didn't want to go out and talk to people with my too black eyes I was in charge of the social. Dave put up put banners and several brought items to display.

This week my music group is starting to record Christmas music to make a CD for Christmas. We have been playing music for the nursing homes since 2005. We are doing this to have a remembrance of our programs. We should have done it several years ago. Our group is aging out of this activity. We are now in the late 70's and early 80's.

Prayers for all. Sue

Vicky, just listening to you makes me tired! emoticon Makes me glad I live in an apartment...Sue, that is very thoughtful of you to make gluten free doughnuts. I try and avoid the coffee hour as I give in and eat doughnuts a lot of the time. They are cut in fourths, but I usually eat 3 or 4 which makes up a whole one. Getting excited about going to celebrate my sister and my birthdays which are in July. I will be going to Wyoming (Lord willing, and the creek don't rise!). May get my hair dyed lavender. It's pretty short--so it will only last about a month! Blessings upon all of you!

Bathroom, done. Entryway, done. Deck swept and porch furniture rearranged and I just took the apple cobbler out of the oven for Friday Night Light. I have a couple dozen pre-made sugar cookies in the oven now, then I can sit down and relax for a few minutes before I go get cleaned up to go to my parents. We had a fellow motorcyclist stop by to visit earlier and Bob had to go to the funeral home for a former coworker. This day is almost too much...

Next week I'm going to tackle the upstairs, and leave the kitchen, dining room, living room and hall for last.

Time for a coffee break...

Thank you Vicky. We still have Snoopy and Cronos our two cats. Enjoy your summer.

Yes it has been cool and now it will be getting warmer. I am so glad to see the sunshine.

Sunday after the service is my time to display a poster about our churches prayer group. People's names in crisis or bad situations are sent to me. I send the names out to the group to pray for them. Dave and I are making doughnuts to go with coffee as people socialize. I am baking some gluten free. I am hoping it will be a good day.

Enjoy the weekend.

Oh, Sue, I'm so sorry about your Teddy! I'm hugging you from here...

First day of summer freedom! But it's also the first day of spring cleaning here. Think I'll tackle the downstairs bathroom first. It's not very big...

I'm hoping to get my eating back on track, too. Yesterday morning, I weighed the same as when I started the school year...no progress at all! Kinda depressing, but at least it's not more. Betsy, my coworker, has managed to lose almost 30 pounds in the last 2 months...I'm so proud of her! She does Weight Watchers...

Temps are going up here. Thank the Lord, my last weeks in the kitchen, it was basically in the 60's. This coming week, we're going into the 90's! Can you believe it???

Enjoy your day, everyone...

Long day today. Our fourteen year old dog Teddy died about 11 am. He was one of three brothers we rescued. Sammy, Jack and Teddy came to us in 2002.. Sammy had lymphoma and died three years ago. Jack was diabetic and died last year. Teddy was the busy runner. He got the most miles per dog. We will miss him.

Vicky I am glad you are heading for schools out days of summer. Enjoy your cabin.

We are back into the swing of the weeks at home. Next Sunday Dave and I will be doing the after church social time. I will be telling about our church prayer chain that prays for those with immediate needs. We are going to have donuts. Dave makes them from scratch. I will make the gluten free ones,

Today is blue sky and sunshine. It is wonderful.

Three more days and I'm free for the summer! Today was field day at the school, a day of fun and games outside. The kids were wild! Three more days... emoticon

Not a whole lot going on here. Nathaniel(grandson) has spent the last couple of nights with us. Pap has been working on his vehicle, getting it road ready for him. I cannot believe he's gonna be 17 next month...

Hope you all are enjoying your day...

Vicky glad you had time at the cabin. I know that it is good to clear out every so often. It is just hard to do when there are things that have sentimental value. Good luck with the daughter's room

We are still here and helping Dave's Aunt. We hope she will be a bit stronger when we have to leave for home on Saturday.

We just got home from the cottage. I don't think we'll be going up for a couple of weeks. I need to spend some time at home getting things done around here. The bedrooms upstairs need cleared out and cleaned. I would like to totally empty at least one of them. Holly's old room needs the most work. She would never let us do anything with it when she lived here, and she's been out of the house for a long time. Maybe it's time to start scraping wallpaper again...

The dog is happy to be home. She's been chasing the cat since we got back...

It's a beautiful day and I hope you all are enjoying it...

Another week gone. Today we drove to Myrtle Beach to be with Dave's Aunt Barbara. She is 89. When we call that we were close we found out she had just gotten home from the hospital. On Tuesday she had a mild heart attack. I am so glad we are here.

I know it is Memorial Day weekend so everyone is really busy.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend

Thanking God that I didn't have more problems. More bruses showing up on my shoulder arms and legs. Thankfully they are not hurting.

We leave tomorrow for Dave's Aunt Barbara in Myrtle Beach. I hope I don't scare her.
I also hope that my face is better in a week when we come home.

My last several days were not so good food wise. Back on track yesterday and plan to watch while we are away.

Thank you. Today both eyes are black and the spot that was sore on my leg is about a 6" black and blue bruise.

Dave had an eye appointment today so he drove and I got to music class while he had his appointment. MY Dentist appt. is a 3 pm. today so I am getting ready to go now.
Music class is at my church so I talked to my pastor and the church secretary this am. They both said a prayer so I am in good hands. We leave for Myrtle Beach on Saturday. Our animal sitter and house sitter move in our house that day. I am glad to be going away. We don't do a lot of things but are with Aunt Barbara all week next week. Myrtle Beach has bikers over the Memorial Day weekend. so traffic will be bad on Saturday when we drive in. I will be good and heal for all that week.

I have my new lap top computer and so I should not miss a day. It isn't as busy a life down there.

Not so good here.
Yesterday I went to take my friend to the doctor. Her driveway is very steep. I got out of my car an started toward the door. I stepped on a round twig and fell. I hit my forehead so it has a big bump. My glasses bent and scratched the lens.one of mu teeth broke off. The Emergency room took X-rays. No broken bones. My hip is sore where it hit. Not a good day here. I am okay it will heal.

I am taking my daughter to lunch today. I called her last night to say what had happened. Today the eye is really black and red. The forehead is looking like the swelling went down.
Dave cleaned gravel out of the wounds.

More on this when I get back. I have a hair appointment today. I only go once a month or so. We are planning to go to Myrtle Beach on Saturday and stay the week with Dave's Aunt Barbara (89 years old.) I wanted my hair colored and cut for the trip. I hope she will do myhairl

My best friend, Gail, and my coworker, Betsy, are both doing WW, and are doing very well. I'll bet you're excited to get started! I have to do a total revision of what I'm eating. Too many carbs lately! I miss my meat and veggies. Time to get back to it.

I am excited, because of our finances I had to quit going to Weight Watchers. But next month I will be able to go back. I really want to reach my goal weight, and WW is the only thing that has ever worked for me. Has anyone ever read the book "Power Thoughts" by Joyce Meyer? I have found it to be a very good read. Blessings.

Hello, all. Just stopping in for a minute to check in. The kitchens are heating up at work. It's a nice breezy sunny day here. We're headed to Friday Night Light, then to the cottager the weekend and I still have to pack. I'd like to get in a little more exercise than I usually do up there, and I'd like to get my rosebush planted...before it gives up and dies...

Have a nice relaxing weekend, all...

Sunshine and warm day. We are finished playing for nursing homes for this month.
Hope to get some work done in the yard. It has branches down and the grass is too high.

I need to get my vegetable garden going.

Prayers for all.

Hello, all. Since it's local election day here today, I had the day off work. They use our schools as polling places, so Bob & I spent last night up at the cottage getting our shower up and running. This morning I had my first shower in my cottage! Wonderful!!! We still have carpeting and paneling to do in the bedroom part, but not this week. My funds are getting low!

I've had a couple bad eating days. The scales are going back and forth, back and forth...it's so tiresome, but totally my own fault...

Enjoy the sunshine...

Hello everyone! Had a great Mother's day. My daughter called. Got some tv dinners on sale for half price and walked about 3 miles. The church service was on forgiveness. Will be praying for all of you. It is great to hear answers in the affirmative to prayer.Blessings.

Happy Mother's Day We had sunshine and that made me feel great!!

Prayers for everyone.

Sue, I'll bet Diana feels relieved to be home. Our friend Kimmie, came home from 2 weeks in Passavant Hospital in Pittsburgh the other day and ended up in the ER here in town before the end of the day, then was rushed back to Passavant for emergency surgery. She had ulcerative colitis and they ended up having to remover her colon. Now they tell her she's "cured," but she's got to deal with a colostomy bag. She's not even 40. Her outlook is pretty good though.

I'm sitting here with my 1 piece of pizza in front of me for lunch. It's Mother's Day so I'm going to indulge!

Have a lovely Mother's Day, all..

Vicky

Rain again today. Dark day but we had great music at the Greensburg store.

My friend is not doing well still. Not able to go home today. If she goes home tomorrow she will need a lot of help. Her name is Diana. Please pray for her.

We looked at a few smaller houd
She's. One was really nice but there was no room for my two organs there . I have to try to keep my group going a while longer.

Prayers for all.

I'm starting a new position at work Monday, i just hope i do a great job!😯 I'm a little nervous, I'm starting one of the challenge groups on here. Does anyone have premium sparkpeople? Wondering if it's worth getting? God bless and good night friends.

Hello, all. Ann, it's good to see you here when you get the chance!

Sue, today was the first day this week that I didn't have to start my car early to defrost the windshield! It warmed up quite nicely later on though.

Gail, my friend, and I are going to visit another dear friend tonight. Her husband has not been in the best of health for awhile and now that he seems to be on the mend, we decided to get together for a nice visit.

20 work days to go, then it's summertime!!!

Have a lovely afternoon, all...

Vicky

Ann good to hear from you. Glad to hear you have vacation and then retire, You are right. the word is NO or I am not ready to take on anything extra at this time.

My friend is not doing too well after the surgery. Again she is nauseous and has a headache. I am going back out today. The asked if she wanted to go home yesterday but at therapy she was dizzy.

I miss you all....just a quick visit after a day's worth of work. I haven't read all of the posts, but I can say that all of you are in my heart and prayer's for health and peace come to all of you. Must go and pick up my husband, and get his prescriptions, then we are going out for dinner tonight. Roast Beef at our favourite restaurant with green beans and rice. Sounds good eh....Just think in two months I will be on one month vacation and then on July 31st I will be retired! I know that Sue says I have to remember the word "No" to all requests for my time and choose the ones that interest me. Right Sue???

Vicky I hope your husband is better.

Liz wonderful news for your Aunt and Dad.

My friends surgery went well but she had a hard day yesterday. I am back at the hospital this morning. She is much better. They are planning to send her home tomorrow. I will go with her and stay most of the day through early evening.

Prayers do help. We need to understand our God is much more powerful than our minds can understand. Blessings to you all today. Sue

Good Morning emoticon Good News! Our Aunt is feeling better, she's talking and starting therapy. She may be able to go home in a few days. My dad's petscan was negative for Cancer and Leukemia! emoticon We are so happy!😆God is Great! He's still not in the clear but I'll take it and keep believing that my God is greater than any sickness and disease that can come upon us!💪 We've had some rain but not much. Couldn't get anything done yesterday because of it ☔ Me and the hubby went out to dinner at a resturaunt in Newport and had a fabulous night. I'm glad we are able to do things like that because it's so important. 💑 Church was good, the pastor seemed upset about the numbers, he mentioned how other churches are celebrating using lights and props and missing the message. I'm going to get some exercise in before my work day🏃🏋 Blessings to everyone today and whatever you do today make it count because you will never have this day again!🤗

Lots to pray about this morning. Bob was up sick all night, too. He has a biker blessing to do today, and it's only to get up to low 50"s so I'm not sure they'll have a very good turn out...

We had our first Friday Night Light, and it was just us regulars and that's okay. We didn't have the flyers out yet, but now they are so we'll be ready.

Have a wonderful Sunday, all...

Blessings to all today.

Glad to hear that Susie is improving. Still praying for all of you.

Taking a friend with us to church today. She is coming for dinner too. She has surgery for her right knee tomorrow. She had the other one done earlier. She is worried so we arepraying and hope the church service will help. She was a member there years ago. She moved to be nearer her job and attended church with her Mother. Her mother is in a nursing home now. Too many worries at this time for her. Please say a prayer that she has good results from this surgery.

It is another cold dark day here. We are just swamped with water.
Enjoy each day.
Sue

Hello everyone! I am getting some spring cleaning done and catching up on my reading! I am enjoying the great weather we are having here! This afternoon we are supposed to get thunderstorms though...We can use the rain, hope the lightning doesn't cause fires. I have been so blessed this past week with so many answers to prayer. Thank you for you prayers for Sudie. She is doing much better physically. Will be praying for you all...blessings.

I know what you mean, Sue. I see so many things I need to do, but don't have the strength to accomplish them anymore. I used to move my piano from one wall to another. Bob used to get irritated when I'd change the living room around. Now, it's all I can do to move the couch out and plug in the lamp that Cleo keeps unplugging!

Rainy here again, but we're not flooding like out west. Those poor people...

Have a blessed day, all...

No, Sue, I haven't heard of that one, but all her books are good. I'm still reading Andrew Wommack's Authority of the Believer, What You Didn't Learn in Church. Taking it a chapter at a time, just trying to get it on the inside of me.

Wet and cold here today...

Still no drop in weight...I will continue to be good...as long as possible...

Liz prayers continue for you, your Dad and your aunt.

Congratulations on getting a new driver in the family, Vicky. Now his Mom can let him drive her places. emoticon

The storm had a tornado run through east of us. We still have a lot of branches down and our rocker on the porch blew over.

Today is dark and cool. Dave is on the GoodWill board for our area. They opened a new store near us today. We went over for a while.

Music meeting here tomorrow. Busy day against.

I had my cat, Cleo, fixed as soon as I possibly could, simply because there are a lot of feral cats around here, and she is never allowed outside. I knew I couldn't handle her going into heat. She was a feral kitten that we caught up at my parents along with 2 other kittens and 2 adults. We got them all fixed, then turned the adults loose and kept the kittens. I got Cleo and my daughter got the other two. Best money ever spent!

Just sitting here waiting for Bob to get home from Georgia. Haven't seen him since Sunday. He's on a trip with his brother to pick up a trailer. I have no idea when they'll be pulling in...

Hope you all are enjoying sunshine like me...

Congratulations! To your grandson. It's a very exciting time when you first get your license but it quickly dies down and becomes normal again, lol. Praying for his safety while enjoying this new experience in life. I'm eating junk, junk, and more junk these days. I don't think being stressed helps. Aunt Norma is doing better, they are slowly removing the machines that are helping her breathe to see if she can do it on her own. Thank you Jesus! My father went for his petscan today and we will find out the results on Thursday. I'm trusting in the Lord and being strong for my dad. That's about all i can do now. One of my youngest cat's is in heat and it's awful. She's always yelling and bugging the other cat's. I don't think she realizes they're female and that's not how it works, lol. Poor baby I'll have to get her fixed sooner than later. I'm trusting and believing in myself for tomorrow is a new day to get up and try again at this weightloss and eating healthier routine. Maybe I'll stick it out this time. Why is it i can be strong for everyone except myself? God Bless friends and i hope everyone stays safe in this crazy weather.😆

Hello, all. Just stopped by to catch up. Not much going on here, other than the big storm yesterday. Tornado spotted near town, but nothing damaged here at our place.

Grandson is taking his driver's test today...in my car. I'm praying he passes it. So is his mother!

Spent some time at the cottage this weekend, but it was rainy and cold. My hosta are starting to come up and so are the ferns. Now I want to go get some marigolds to plant. I hear they repel mosquitoes...we'll see...

Haven't been losing any weight this week, but it ain't over yet...have a lovely day, all...

Today I am having lunch with my friend. She is having her second knee replacement. I know she is nervous. Her left knee went well. Now the right knee will be done.

We have had terrible storms and high wind. More branches down.

Sunday we had a small number at service. Sunday night we had company far dinner. We were four couples. Some of us have met far dinner last fall. We hadn't seen one couple for about Six years. It is good to keep contact with friends. We laughed and visited.

Prayers for everyone
Sue
