Good afternoon Positive Sparkies...

Just got a nudge from Shirl so figured I'd pop on for a minute. I've been under the weather the past 3 days with a headache and neck pain. So been laying low. Headache's are no fun. Not sure where it is coming from. But hope it's gone soon. Been doing some stretches to try to help and a nice relaxing dip in the pool today and then a hot shower for the muscles in my neck and head too. hehehe So I was SPLASHING a lot. hehehe Hope i didn't Splash anyone that didn't want it.

Hope all is well with you and yours. I will catch up when this headache goes away.

(((hugs)))

Shril emoticon nice to see your post today, hope you can get your computer fixed soon

Wanda good job burning those extra calories

Hubby tried on a pair of shorts he could not wear last week and they fit him just right. I still don't know if he is losing weight because of the treatments or eating low calorie and walking. He is doing a lot of walking over a mile most every day.

I'm going to a diabetic class today. I lost my list of speakers so I don't know what I will be learning today but I know there will be a good healthy lunch to fallow yum yum my favorite part.

Good morning everyone, it's been a while since I've been able to get here, miss everyone. Last Thursdays' concert was great and looking forward to this week's concert. It's going to be even hotter and muggier than yesterday today, the AC will be staying on. Ice cream social went very well last Sat. and the resident potluck last night. Our president should be back from MA today. A.J. was here over the weekend, so we did some movie watching and on Sunday we took him to Mac Donald's for lunch, mom and dad went to a Detroit Tigers game with mom's sister and BIL, and the Tigers won. Margaret and I are meeting at ALIVE this morning for a walk, it's been almost a month now since we last walked, really need to get back at it.

Hope everyone is doing good this summer and that you all have a terrific Tuesday. I hope to get my computer looked at maybe in a couple weeks, I sure miss connecting everyday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

Seems like we are missing lots of people in the Chit Chat lounge these past few days. Hopefully they will make their way back from their busy lives.

I have a very busy day at work ahead of me. We got a big shipment in yesterday, which I need to unpack today and begin receiving. My co-worker that helps with this part of the job is away on holidays right now, so it's all up to me *grin*. I'm looking on this as a great way to burn some calories!

Kathryn...love your quote...I will join you in being a fighter and warrior too! How's hubby doing?

Shirl...I'm thinking that your computer is still giving you issues. Hope that you are able to get it fixed as we miss you.

Mauri, Wyndy, Priscilla, Mermaid Kathy, and anyone else that pops in today...hope you are all having a good day and that you are finding your positives in this crazy world we live in.

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good Morning all,
There is a taste of fall in the air this morning...it's only plus 6 this morning! I noticed that the leaves on my apple tree are starting to turn yellow already and it's only July! On the plus side, I got a tomato off one of my tomato plants yesterday and all my potatoes are in flower.

Garry got home safe and sound from Saskatchewan yesterday afternoon. He was able to get lots of chores done for his Mom. It's a long trip (5 hours drive one way) but it's great that he and his brother make sure that their mom is ok. They phone alternate days as well.

It's back to work for me today...I'm not sure what kind of a day it will be at work, but planning on making it a positive one.

Have a great day everyone,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good Morning everyone.

I woke up this morning all tucked in a ball and covered up, it was cold during the night. What a difference in temperature...it almost feels like winter is around the corner. The leaves on my apple tree are turning yellow already!

Mermaid Kathy...the splashing sure helped with the smokey air...but hey did you have to make it so cold *grin*? You did awesome at finding some positives and putting a positive spin on things..Love ya! Hope you can figure out what is going on with your stimulator and that you won't have to have more surgery. Keeping you in my prayers.

Kathryn...I'm glad that your hubby has been able to work out a plan so that he can get his pain meds. Keeping you both in my prayers.

Shirl...hope you can get your computer issues worked out...we miss you.

Garry should be home sometime today, most likely late afternoon. He had a busy weekend at his mom's. He is going to try and meet up with our son on his way back home. Hope they get some time together.
I did some doggie sitting again yesterday morning while Shy and Kyle went into the have her engagement ring looked at. Some of the claws were becoming sharp and they were afraid of loosing some diamonds. The jeweler sent her ring way to get it fixed so she is without her ring for a couple of weeks. They will have her ring appraised when it gets back just to be sure there has not been any tampering with it.

Only a couple more weeks and then its holiday time for me. We have a reunion to attend on the weekend of August 8th. Looking forward to going. We are taking Garry's Mom with us and his sister and one brother are going also. My brother and his wife will be there too. It's an old home town reunion so not sure who all we will end up seeing.

I made myself a great fruit and yogurt smoothie for breakfast this morning. I could drink those all day long. I would love to have them for my breakfast every morning, but I don't think my family would appreciate the blender noise at 5:30 am! Because I like to have a banana in them, I don't like to make them up the night before as it turns brown even in the fridge. On the plus side...it's a great treat to look forward to on the weekends!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

On here early today 6:22, because I can't sleep, had a bad dream. I dreamed I moved and the new apartment had a dirty kitchen, hard stove to use and the garbage d. did not work. Can't spell what that thing is under the sink that grins up food waste, but hope you know what I mean. Any way the dream woke me up and I can't get back to sleep.

Positive quote-I believe in the person I want to be.

I am so proud of myself, I am trying not to eat after dinner and I did it last night. I have a book of 3 by 5 cards with motivational sayings on them and I set up one for me to see that said "You can be strong" and I was.

Kathy your splashing is so refreshing I would enjoy some more. Hope you get a good plan worked out for your pain. Hubby worked out a plan with his doctor. He has to go in every Monday to test if he has been drinking. If he has not he gets a weeks worth of pain pills. And than he comes home and I buy him a beer. He loves his beer, he is going through a lot with his cancer I can't see taking this away.

Wanda good that you are getting that rain to clear up the air and you have a good plan to do your house hold chores. That "taste of Edmonton" sounds like some thing I would enjoy. I love tasting different kinds of foods.

Took a nice walk to the Dollar store and Starbucks 1.97 miles. I like to walk at least one mile a day.

Good Morning Positive Sparkies...

Lots of things going on here... mainly my DD coming and going... she is still in town and will be back but for now I will not worry about her. She is a grown up vagabond. (that was me looking to be Positive). hehehe
Also I was charging my Spinal cord Stimulator implant (SCS) the other day (for my low back and leg pain) and noticed a yellow light that came on and is staying on... I don't think this is good so called the company and talked with my nurse and she is looking into it but believes it means the battery in my SCS is failing... It is suppose to last 7 years. I had this implant 8 years ago. So think it's done me well. So I am keeping a log of all my charging sessions every week or so and will report back to her my findings. Then we will probably meet with my Pain Doc and get a plan from there. Oh boy... More surgery. hehehe But I gotta say my SCS really does help the pain level. So I will know more in a couple weeks.

Wanda - I bet your DD's will enjoy that event today. Even the "taste of Edmonton". That would be interesting. hehehe Hope that rain is helping to clear your air and putting some fires out too. We need a little rain today too to cool things off. We are gonna be 94f today.
And already so muggy... Enjoy your cleaning. emoticon

Kathryn - I can so relate to the fact that even when you are at a normal weight you still look in the mirror and see FAT. UGH You are not alone.

Thursday was Mine and DH's 29th anniversary. We had a nice dinner out and it was delish.
Yesterday I posted some pic's of us over the years... So I went through lots of old pic's and pulled out lot of them and put them all in a seperate (computer) file. I've tried to remember the past few year to start taking a pic of us each anniversary. Thought that would be a nice thing for the kids someday.
WELL... going through those pictures I was enjoying it but wow to see us years ago and then now. I was not over weight (in my eyes now) but thought I was overweight even then. It's amazing what our brain tells us these things. But in my case today it is true.
We need to keep working towards changing this kind of thinking. If you gt it figured out before let me know. hehehe
Wonder what my Wanda would say. hehehe Oh no I hear in my head now. hehehe Hey that is what I'm hear for. hehehe

Wyndy - Welcome home. hehehe Hey I'm always behind too. It is what it is. hehehe
Good luck getting DH to do some of them chores. My DH mentioned all them weeds this morning too. hehehe Glad that you were not effected by the flooding. Hope you enjoyed your family visits.

Shirl - Sorry to see that your computer is not behaving. Maybe it got wet when I splashed you last time. hehehe Sure hope you can figure out the problem. Until then I will not splash your way... May have to Zig Zag around you to get to Wanda though. hehehe She really needs it.
It's great that your DS will be getting his own truck soon. Breaker Breaker... Make sure he gets a nice pillow to sit on. emoticon emoticon

Well need to go out in that muggy heat to get my laundry out of my dryer... UGH... I mean Yeah!!! Thank goodness I have a nice laundry room with a fan in it to help cool me. hehehe How's that for turning that negative thinking around. I'm still a work in progress. hehehe

~~~~S*P*L*A*S*H~~~~

Good Morning all,

It's been raining through the night and still raining this morning. The air is looking pretty clear now, hopefully this rain is also reaching all the fires that are burning and helping out.

Not a great start to our annual exhibition with the rain, but it doesn't stop the die-hards from attending. There is also the "taste of Edmonton" festival happening. It's where all the different ethnic groups in Edmonton offer up samples of their ethnic foods. The money raised is donated to the food bank. Kaeli and Sylvain are planning on attending. It's always a great turn out.

I'm going to spend the day catching up on house hold chores and reading! I love a rainy day *grin*.

Have a great day everyone,
Hugs,
Wanda

Wanda glad some rain came to clear up the air. It is good that you can do your remodeling this summer.

Positive quote You are not "Fat" you have "Fat".

I find it hard to not see myself as fat even though I have lost weight and am smaller then I have been since a teen. I started thinking I was fat when I started having womanly pounds go on at 14 but I was a size 7. I don't know how much I weighed but it can't have been much. I wear a size 10 now but see myself as that same fat woman who worn a 20. Some things in my mind need to get fixed.

Good Morning everyone.

Welcome back Wyndy...sounds like a great road trip. Glad to hear that you missed having flooding. Now all we have to deal with is the forest fires! From one extreme to another *grin* The nice thing with the rain we had yesterday is that it cleared up the air considerably.

I am puppy sitting today as I have the day off and Shy is working. They still have workers in their house so she didn't want to leave Skye there to whine and cry. She is a good dog and easy to care for but is extremely attached to Shyra.

Kathryn...Yay for your hubby that he is still eliminating excess weight even if some of it is due to the treatments, he is still being aware of what he is eating. He may find that as he continues to eliminate weight that his issues with gout might lessen too.

Shirl...Our big exhibition starts today. (K-days) The parade is this morning, but I won't go as it is in the city and it's crazy. I prefer to watch it on TV. I don't think we will even attend this year as we have so many things that are on our to do list to get done while the weather cooperates. The kids will likely go and we will likely doggie sit *grin*. Our new windows should be ready to be installed by the end of this month. We have 6 that we are replacing and that will leave us with only the two basements windows, the computer room window, the two dining room windows and the garage window that need to be done. Those are good for awhile though, so not likely making it on the list for a couple of years. The new garage door should be installed by the end of the month also. We snagged a great deal on that one. It's a super insulated one that cost $1800. but we got it for $800 including installation. We weren't going to do it this year but with that bargain we bumped it up the list. My new front door with a glass insert will be going in also. I hated not being able to see who was on the other side of the door before opening it. It's an expensive year for reno's but we decided to bite the bullet and get as much done as we can this year. With the wedding next year and possibly two weddings...we won't get much done next year. Garry and I are so blessed to still be working and able to save and pay for these jobs. Right now we are doing without some things to get it done, but it will be worth it in the long run.

Mermaid Kathy...thanks for the splashing...it cleared the smoke filled air a bit. Still hazy outside, but now we can breath. *grin* Have a great day flipping those fins.

Have a great day all,

Hugs,
Wanda

Hello all. I am so far behind I am just going to start here. I had some interesting problems this spring but here it is summer and I'm raring to go. We just returned from a swing through Alberta, 3.058k. Saw both sides of the family, went to the skywalk in the Columbia icefields, and the Royal Drumheller Tyrell Museum of dinosaurs. Now all we have to do is get caught up here. We left just before the floods so fortunately our place in on a hill and although we had lots of rain we didn't flood. Unfortunately, the weeds took advantage of the rain. Now if only I can persuade my hubby to do some summer chores. Wonder what the odds are on that!

God bless your endeavours
Wyndy

Wanda I am not walking with hubby to his treatments he wants to walk alone to have some me time. I think it is good for him. He is losing weight but they said he would with the treatments. His appetite is really good but he is still eating low calorie most of the time. His gout is getting better now that cherries are in season and he eats two small bowl a day. I just got back from the store and bought him more. Of course I am eating them too.
Hope a rain comes your way and clears the air.

Shril sorry you are still having problems with your computer. I have Windows Vista too and it is the only type I have ever used, seems to work good for me.

Positive quote-Great ideas need landing gear as well as wings-C.D. Jackson

My walking buddy and I are going to walk to the news paper this morning to pick up a book on senior activities. I might find some thing interesting to fill some of my free time. Any thing to keep me from nibbling all day.

Good Morning all,
It's still very smokey outside. We aren't in any danger except for those with breathing difficulties, they need to stay indoors. Terrible fires in BC and north of us. We didn't get any thunderstorms last night as predicted, perhaps today. Hope that it's just rain and not lightening though. We could use the washing of the air and lowering of the temps a bit.

Garry is heading out to Calgary after work today to deliver a water fountain that we are giving to his sister. We haven't got room for it and it was given to us. Then tomorrow he is heading to his mom's for a couple of days and then making his way back around to see Quin before heading home on Sunday evening. Not much of a relaxing weekend for him, but he is happy to just get away.

Shirl...keeping you and Clenton in my prayers that all will be ok. Woo Hoo on your son getting his own truck soon and getting out on the roads. So pleased to hear that he is enjoying his job. How was the concert last night? That sounds like my kind of music...good toe tapping stuff *grin*

Mermaid Kathy...Splash really really hard so that it misses Shirl and hits here. We can use the clean air and coolness *grin*.

Kathryn...How it going this week with walking to hubby's appointments? Thinking of you.


My fitbit is not connecting to the computer for some reason, so it isn't automatically updating. It's recording on the fitbit, but not transferring to the computer for some reason. Maybe it's just worn out!

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good evening to all. I am still having issues with my computer, now this evening it's working just like it should, but not earlier today, so I really don't know what the problem is, I've heard lots of people don't care for windows vista which is what I have on this computer. Lunch at Pizza Hut today was nice, we ended up with 7 of us, I had two slices of pizza, a small portion of pasta and a slice of dessert pizza and water to drink. It's been cool today, so will be cooler tonight, but tomorrow it's suppose to be warmer, but will still be taking a sweater with me to the concert to hear Billy Mack and the Juke Joint Johnnies, rockabilly music. Talked with DS this evening and next week he'll be getting his own truck to drive and will be on the road by himself, but he will be doing the short hauls and not going out of state, he is really liking it. The nurse called with DH's results from the CT scan and the spot they saw last year has gotten bigger so they want him to see the pulmonary clinic at the Ann Arbor VA and they'll probably do a biopsy, so we are waiting to hear from Ann Arbor for an appointment for that and his eyes to see if he needs the laser surgery again in the right eye. I hope everyone has had a good Wed. While the computer is working right will try to get as much done as I can this evening.

Wanda glad you all got to see Quin for a bit and that Garry will be able to get to see him later. Praying all will be safe from the fire.

Mermaid thanks for not splashing me, I'd freeze me tail feathers, lol. Good job on the push ups ten is a good start.

Kathyrn, I keep a good eye on my DH's feet.

Well I never know from day to day if I'll get on here or not, so if you don't see me anywhere you'll know it's my computer and that I am ok. Enjoy your evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

The smoke from the forest fires has made it's way to us. Very hazy outdoors. Difficult to breath as the air is very acrid. Soot on all the vehicles. Will be watching the news closely tonight!

Wanda glad you found the team points

Doing laundry so that means up and down the cellar stairs. I also took a walk to the supermarket and pushed my cart back with 3 gallons of water and a bag of ice. Good work out for the arms and legs today.

Good Morning all,
It's so dark out this morning that I'm thinking that summer is passing quickly. The days are getting shorter too fast! On the plus side, I have the door wide open and letting in some cooler air before I have to head for work.

Shirl...What a crazy vortex we are in. I was watching the news last night and seeing the "cool" weather that is in Eastern Canada and many of the Easter States as well. Figured you would be right in the midst of it. Very fall like weather with all those cool temps. We are in the heatwave portion of it all. Supposed to get some thunderstorms today and possibly tomorrow.
So glad that it was not your computer but the wireless connection at the residence that was giving you grief. Hopefully they have been able to get it fixed now. Sounds like a great get together at the church with the ladies...it is always so nice to get together and visit. What a great deal on getting free baking and bread...how did that come about? Have a great day today, Hugs.

Kathryn...There are so many things that diabetes can affect in your body...great that you could attend a class a learn even more about how to stay healthy. I got my hair cut yesterday and it feels so good to have all that shagginess gone. Our son dropped in on his way home from a job site yesterday. He had a couple of hours to spend with us before needing to head back home and on to his next job site. We haven't really seen him since Christmas, so was a great visit. His sisters and their significant others gathered also so we all had a visit. Garry chatted with him on the phone as he was heading to a meeting and wouldn't be home in time to see him. He will try to touch base with him this weekend. Garry is off to Kindersley Saskatchewan to do some outdoor chores for his mom and on his way home he will make a slight detour to connect up with Quin. Have a great day today. Hugs.

Mermaid Kathy...Enjoy your visit with your DD. I hope that she is getting along well and that you guys have a nice time together. Good for you for watching your portions. It's not that we can't have things, we just have to have them in moderation *grin*.
We got out quote back on the replacement of 6 more windows...it was even less than we thought it was going to be, so we are biting the bullet and going ahead with getting them and having them installed. That should happen sometime towards mid August. So glad that we are both working! We have managed to get several big projects accomplished this year. So much that we have to do while it's warm enough outside to get them done in. Once these windows are done we will only have 6 more to make it complete with having every window replaced. The 6 remaining ones can wait for a bit though as they are still pretty good shape.
Enjoy your day. Hugs.

Wishing everyone that stops by a wonderful day...PS...I finally found the points for team thing...I no longer get it on the side of my page, it is moved down the page and I need to click on a tab for it now. Yay..found it!

Hugs,
Wanda

Kathy it is very far to the beach from my home. The river is near and is very cold from the snow run off. So you are doing push ups in the pool that is great, 10 is a good number to start with, I started at 3.

Wanda I need a hair cut too am putting it off maybe next month.

Shril glad your computer is working again

I went to the diabetes class and learned a lot about foot care that will keep me on my toes emoticon

Morning Sparkies...

My DD arrived from Colorado yesterday and says she's here for a visit. hehehe We'll see in time. She made us a nice un-healthy breakfast this morning. She was so hungry for tators eggs bacon and toast. I was good and watch my portions really well but did enjoy every bite. hehehe

Shirl - Glad it's not your computer. I didn't even think of that internet connection either. hehehe but just happy you know what it is now.
Sorry no Splashes your way. I see that strange VORTEX thing has hit you today. And Wanda is on the high side you on the low. They are saying that it came from that Typhoon that hit Japan a week or two ago. It's sent weather way up north and pulling that cold air down to you... But in a snake shape. So Wanda gets the hot stuff and you the cooler... Enjoy it... And send it here. We are at 93f today which is still hotter than Wanda. hehehe I've figured out that it would be about 33-34 c...

So Wanda I'm enjoying NOT the heat with you... hehehe Stay cool today. Can you imagine that heat with the humidity to go with and like 6 months or more of the year... Do not ever come to FL in the summer... you would not like it at all. hehehe Enjoy your AC today. hehehe And here is a SPLASH for you... You can share it with Kathryn but don't send it to Shirl. hehehe She'd freeze. hehehe

Kathryn - Glad you enjoyed them splashed... Do you ever go to the beach to swim there? When we were there we went to Venus beach in July and I put my toe in and it was BRRRRRR Freezing. hehehe I figure that is whey everyone is strutting their stuff in the sand and boardwalk area. hehehe Not many in the water. hehehe
Congrats on your push ups... you are doing great. Almost made me want to get up and try them. But I'm sure I'd just hurt myself. hehehe I did do some in the pool the other day. But only about 10 of them. Keep up your streak. You are doing great!

Hello to all those that may stop in... Have a great day.

Good morning all, it's a cool morning here, we are only suppose to get up maybe in the mid 60's today, it does not feel like the middle of July at all. Guess it was our wireless here that was causing all the problems and not my computer after all, that's good news. I tried posting yesterday but it wouldn't. Some of us ladies met at the church last evening, sort of a get to know you kind of thing, didn't get home till 9:30, you know how us ladies like to talk when we get together, guess we are going to try this once a month and hopefully more ladies will join us.
This morning will be going with another resident to pick up our free bread and baked goods and bring back here for our residents, she wants me to go with her so in case sometime she can't go she'd have a back up person to go pick it up. Tomorrow is our noon outing, which I haven't been going to, but will this time as our president is going to be out of town for a funeral in MA, we're going to the Pizza Hut for the buffet.

Wanda you are having summer heat and we are having fall like weather, isn't it crazy, lol. I need to get with my granddaughter and get my hair cut, it's really grown out.

Mermaid glad you are behaving. Don't send MI any splashes, it's like fall weather up here right now, I know I'll be taking a jacket with me Thursday night for the concert. It wasn't my computer after all, it was our wireless connection here and I didn't even think of that as it kept showing I had a good connection, but really didn't, working fine today as they reset it.

Wishing all a good Tuesday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

Wow, it was a hot one for sleeping last night. I'm dragging butt this morning. It's still very warm in the house and supposed to get up to plus 30 again today. So grateful that I work in an AC building.

I'm off to get my shaggy dog appearance cleaned up after work. When my hair gets this long it looks pretty untidy. Looking forward to getting it cut shorter again.

I will try to get back later to catch up with all that is going on. I'm running a bit late again this morning due to many things. This heat is not something that we are really used to and it saps me! On the plus side...I'm not shoveling it! *grin*

Hope everyone is doing well. I don't know whether they changed things on the site or what, but now my daily wheel spin is down at the bottom instead at the top of the page where I would see it and I can't locate the team points allocation...did it move or disappear???

Have a great day all,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good Morning Sparkies...

Wanda - Sounds like you all are in full speed ahead with remodeling. And my DH would have loved that firesale on the garage door too. He is always looking for good deals on Craigslist. He found us a stair lift for a fraction of the price. So now I can get back up from the basement. hehehe
Loved your pic's of your deck and privacy fence. I wish DH would have left ours the natural colors. It looks so much nicer that way... In my humble opinion. hehehe
Have a good week at work.

Kathryn - Oh I hate when they do that to people. He needs them pain meds for all that he is going through. Hope that it all gets worked out for him. ((hugs))

Shirl - Nice that you are back online. You need to get your computer into the shop. Usually the Office depots and such places charge about $50 to figure out what is going on. And if it's something they can fix they will put that $50 towards fixing it. Just a thought.
As for me behaving. hehehehe Yep I sure have been.

Been nursing this back for a week or more. Then tried charging my neurostimulator (implant) and had not done it in a long time. (just kept forgetting) So I am thinking the battery may be going bad. Which would mean more surgery to either put a new batter in or new stimulator.
So need to call the company today and see what they think.
Either way... it is still working at this point and so happy for that. I run it 24/7 when in lots of pain and it does help the low back and legs.

Oh and Did you ALL get them S*P*L*A*S*H*E*S I sent to you Saturday? hehehe I was able to get in the pool and first just quietly floated around then did some walking and stretching. Was very sore after but know that it was good for me to do it.

ok I need to have one more coffee and then make a phone call. Have a wonderful day everyone...

Good Morning all,

We had a very busy weekend. My brother and SIL ended up not coming so we hit the chore list hard and got lots of things accomplished. I popped on for a minute yesterday, but other than that I really didn't use the computer at all over the weekend.

Weather has been hot here, so doing the outside chores has been a real exercise, good though. It's nice to have some good weather to get these things done in. Our working outdoors season is so short that when we do get the chance it's full speed ahead.

We are waiting on a quote for the replacement of the remaining windows that need to be done and if we can that will one of the last major expenses for outside things. The new garage door should be installed by the end of this month. We got a super deal on a very well insulated garage door. A wrong door was sent for another customer and rather than having it shipped back we were given a "firesale" price on it. You grab the deals when they come up!
We also bit the bullet and purchase a new steel front door to replace the old one that is drafty. Now we will have a new sealing front door and a new storm door. Should help keep out the winter drafts this year. Good thing both of us are working!!

Hope everyone is doing good. I noticed when I logged on this morning that the spin for points thingy never showed up...have they changed things again??


Have a great day everyone.
Hugs,
Wanda

Hubby was so upset with life he binged out on cookies, I was right there eating with him. My fault when he asked for the cookies I could have said no put my foot down and been firm but I felt so sorry for him. The VA said they would maybe give him one week of pain meds if he did not smoke pot or drink a beer over the week end. He is doing good so I thought the cookies would not hurt him. We are back on track today. Monday he will get his meds and I will buy him a beer.

Good morning, serenity Sunday is posted, sorry I couldn't get on at all Friday or Saturday, I was ready to toss my computer out the door, lol. I didn't think I was going to get on today, but lo and behold it's working, hopefully it will still work when I get back from church.

Welcome Alison to our team.

Kathryn hope hubby is able to get the pain med, right now things are a mess with the VA's all over, so far we've been lucky and always gotten good treatment.

Wanda will have to look at pictures when I get back from church. The concert was good, this group was The North Country Flyers.

Mermaid are you behaving yourself?

Wishing all a blessed and serene Sunday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Positive quote-Today is a new day, make a change

Hubby was not happy yesterday as the VA won't give him his pain meds. We spent the afternoon trying to find a doctor that would, we have not yet. He said he would not think about it this weekend and will try again Monday. I was so upset I binged yesterday on cake and chips. Today is an other day and I am back on track.

Good Morning...just a quick visit today.

I'm off for my monthly massage session and then it's running errands and getting together with my brother and SIL.

The new front storm door is now installed and the deck is all finished with the weather coating. Now we just have to put the furniture back on the deck and get ready for a bbq weekend.

Have an awesome fun filled weekend everyone.

Good Morning everyone,

It's my day off work and I was so looking forward to a bit of a sleep in...my family on the other hand forgot that I didn't have to work today...they are incredibly noisy in the mornings! On the plus side I was ready to get up anyway *grin*.

We have Garry's handyman friend coming first thing this morning to install our new front storm door. That also meant I needed to get showered and dressed before starting on the computer!
Which reminds me that I need to share my pictures with you...back in a few minutes or when I figure out how to load the pictures from my phone to the computer!

I'm back...it's going to take more time to get it figured out...the program that I normally use isn't working right.


Alison...welcome to the Positive Bloggers team...so nice to see your post and congratulations on being a cancer survivor...that is awesome news. I'm from Alberta, Canada and work full-time so usually get on around 5:30 am before heading to work. Sometimes I get back on in the evening, but as I work on a computer all day at work, I try to rest my eyes from computer screen strain once I'm home. Let us know how we support and encourage you. It's a great bunch of people on this team and although we offer some challenges each day...we mainly offer positive communication and encouragement to each other. Have an awesome day.

Shirl...woo hoo the first concert of the summer. How was it and who was playing? That is too bad about Willie Nelson cancelling. What books did your niece leave to read? I'm reading one called The Nazi Officer's Wife by Edith Hahn Beer (it's about how one Jewish woman survived the holocaust). I have several cookbook and gardens ones to peruse through this weekend too. I love working at the library...I get to see so many different books and put them on hold *grin*. Have a great day. Let us know how DH's chest results are ok?

Kathryn...sounds like hubby had a great birthday. Hope he gets his pain pills, I can't imagine what he is going through with the treatments. Enjoy your walks together to his appointments. What a blessing that you can go with him. We are back to sunshine today and supposed to be very hot all weekend...not used to that! I'm trying to load a picture of my garden but I'm having difficulty getting the program to work. I might have to go and take the pictures again with my camera instead of my phone. Will play around with it a bit when I'm done here. Enjoy your day...and your Starbucks *grin*.

Mermaid Kathy...Woo hoo on the hi-tech stair ride! So glad that you were able to get such a great deal on one and Andy was able to get it installed. Mobility is yours once again! I'm planning on virtually enjoying your pool this weekend so have the drinks ready ok? Hugs.

Priscilla...I would be happy to send you some of this rain that we have been having. On the plus side of all the rain...my potatoes and onions are growing like crazy. We have just enough hot weather in between the rain that I shouldn't have mushy things this fall to dig up. Garry has been able to get the back deck all pressure washed between the rain storms...now we just need it to dry out before applying the weather coating to it. It is going to look very nice when its all done. I'm looking forward to being able to use my deck again. Enjoy your day. Hugs.

Mauri...Hows the bus going? You are such a busy lady. I keep up with all your happenings by FB so know that you have been working lots. Have a blessed and wonderful day my friend.

Wyndy...how are you doing? Haven't heard from you for a bit...are you flooded out or just enjoying the summer?

Must go and see how I can get my program to work so that I can share my pictures with you. Stu is coming pretty soon to install the new front storm door and I want to do it before he gets here so I don't have any interruptions when I'm trying to think *grin*.

Have an awesome day all,
Hugs,
Wanda

I rejoined SP about a week ago and have been wanting to start a blog. I have never done one before and I think that my journey with SP will be a great forum. I like the idea that this team is Positive because, who doesn't need even a little something positive in our life every day?~!

I'm 51, married, 2 kids (16 and 11 - I "positively" have a teenager :) ), a cancer survivor (1 year),
2 cats, 2 dogs and live in Texas - but I'm a Yankee - from NY. I'm almost 100% recovered from the 2 surgeries I had within this year and I am ready to get moving and reclaim my life.

If you stop by my wall I will always respond...!

Hubby had a really nice birthday ending in one of our neighbors getting the hose and soaking him down. He was so wet when he came in laughing and planning how to get her back that I had to take his clothes off. They were so soaked they are still wet this afternoon. He is off to the doctor's at VA today to give him hell. They treat the vet so shabbily I hope he gets the pain pills he is asking for. His cancer treatment lasts until the end of Aug. All next week he doesn't have a ride so I may walk with him. His treatments are at 11:00 we may walk there and since it will be in the 90's and warmer when we have to go home we may take a buss home.

Good afternoon all. It's a nice day, low 70's and comfortable. We went and got DH's CT scan done at 11 this morning, stopped and had lunch on the way back home. Looking forward to getting together with Margaret at the concert this evening.

Mermaid glad you got the stairlift to help you out.

Kathryn hope DH enjoyed his birthday.

Wanda it's nice when mother nature waters your garden.

Pris, Cocoa, Mauri, Wyndy and all others wishing you a great Thursday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Hello all!
Mermaid K: If only DH had a man cave!!! No such luck; his big ol' recliner right there in the living room is his cave.
At any rate I am grateful that I have such a dear man to care for me. No complaints really.
I am very thankful we are on one level. I hope your gadgets help enormously in getting you up and down, here and there.

C'mon WANDAH! send some of that rain this way!! The plants here perk up at any little dripdrop and then wither during the ensuing dry days.

Kathryn I look forward to your updates and keep you guys foremost in prayers.

To all our other PB's you are not forgotten. I think of our team often.
Have a wonderful day sparking everyone.!

Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

Good Morning Sparkies...

Priscilla - the same thing happens here when GH is on. My DH goes on about it. That and Dancing with the Stars too. hehehe I warn him when I'm going to watch it so he will go to the basement or outside. hehehe I enjoy it more that way. hehehe

Wanda - I enjoy the rain too. It cools things down. Since we hit the 90's most of the summer and sometimes close to 100... or as they say 95F feels like 101. Oh and I love sleeping when it's raining. Love the sound of it. Not the thunder and lightening... hehehe
How nice that you get to visit your brother and SIL this weekend. And I need to find a massage therapist... But our insurance will not pay for it unless it's ordered by a doctor. I am envious of all of you in Canada that get that monthly massage. hehehe I have another friend that gets one as well. hehehe

Shirl - Glad that your Niece made it back home safe and sound. And Wow she left you a bunch of books to read too. That was great. I always had tons of them Romance novels about 20 years ago... My MIL at that time got me reading them. And a couple of series... can't think of the name of them but they were about this family of settlers that came to the US and then moved from state to state over the years. They were named after all the states. Loved that series. And then I started on a series about the Indians. Loved that one too. But I would end up with so many books. I finally found places that would trade them. And always had a list of the books in the series with me so I could search for the next one I needed. hehehe

Kathryn - How is your DH doing with his treatments now? How long before he is done?

Cocoa - Love that quote you posted...The harder you work. The better you get!
It is true that it applies to everything we do. Thanks for the Positive nudge.

Hello to all that stop in today.

I started working on DH's computer yesterday. He finally found a new/used one online that has Windows 7. It's a refurbished computer and lots cheaper then buying new. (this is our 4th refurbished one - we've had really good luck with them) So I started backing up all his pictures and then copying everything over for him. So will be doing more of that today. Thank goodness he found a Stairlift on craigs list cheap and installed that on the stairs to the Man cave/basement. hehehe My hips/back are so bad I just can't get back up them stairs without lots of pain. So used it yesterday for the first time. hehehe He did good only paid $150 I think it was and new it would have cost $3695. The one he got was an outside one. So it was a couple grand more than the inside ones. But at any rate... I'm so thankful for it.

Ok time for more coffee and then get what I need together to head back downstairs.

Have a great day everyone... emoticon emoticon

Good Morning everyone,

Finally had a great sleep last night, didn't want to get up this morning for work! It started raining during the night and that cooled things off nicely. It's still raining, so looking pretty dark outdoors as yet. I think we are supposed to have rain for most of the day. Yay...I don't have to water the garden beds again!

A belated happy birthday to your hubby Kathryn. Hope his day went well and that you had a wonderful time together.

Today is my Friday and I'm looking forward to having a nice 3 day break. I'm hoping to get some more done around the house and having some time to read.

My brother and his wife should be in town tomorrow, not sure what time as yet and it's my monthly massage again this Saturday. Yep...it's shaping up to be a great weekend. *grin*.

I must run as I slept a bit longer this morning...it was so nice to just lie there...now I have to hurry if I'm going to get to work on time.

Have an awesome day,
hugs,
Wanda

Good Morning Sparkies...

Kathryn - emoticon emoticon emoticon to your DH (Dear Husband). Glad he enjoyed them spanks. hehehe

Just stopped in for a minute... Been down with the back for about a week now. I'm finally feeling a little better but watching what I do for sure so I don't hurt it again. Well for now. hehehe
I know it will happen again, it always does. It's so frustrating. There are so many things I want to be doing. I've got Flowers to re-pot and Roses to dig up and I can't do anything. Poor Andy just can't keep up with all my wants and needs. hehehe Bless his heart he does try. hehehe

So on a positive note... I'm taking it easy today. May try to get out in the pool again later. And I got my new ISO-COOL pillow I ordered. I get so hot when sleeping hoping this pillow will help cool me off.

Shirl - Hope your niece has a nice trip home.

Wanda - Sounds like you are keeping Garry busy too. Your Deck will be so nice again when it's done. Andy painted ours... i think you might of seen it on FB. I really liked the more natural colors but he started painting it so it is what it is. hehehe It still looks nice the way he painted it.
Nice of Gary to help your neighbors too.

ok need to get off here... I'm watching my soap that I've recorded. hehehe

Have a great day everyone...

Good morning all, it's a cool one here, we go from hot & humid to cool especially for this time of year, crazy! The rain stopped and sky started clearing before my niece's flight took off, yesterday, she called me when she got to Birmingham last night around 9-9:30, her DD and DS were there to pick her up. Need to make a trip to the store for some groceries today. Tomorrow morning will be headed over to the VA in Battle Creek for DH's CT scan.

Wanda sometimes he will watch the Midwives with me when it's on PBS, he does watch Doc Martin with me on PBS, he also likes to watch The Red Green Show. That is really nice of Garry to help out your new neighbors. Clenton keeps commenting on what a cool July we are having, the weather is just crazy, we go from hot & humid to cool where you might want a light sweater or jacket. Not very good swimming pool weather.

Wishing all a great Wednesday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

It looks like we might have a rainy day today. Temps are high though so not sure what kind of weather we will end up with. Mother Nature is just doing her thing!

Garry is almost finished pressure washing the back deck. He hopes to get it all re-stained yet this week. If it rains today though, that will delay things a bit. Our neighbors were asking him about how to do their deck last night, so Garry will try to work in the time to go and do theirs for them too. They are a young couple from China and have never owned a home before so very new at all this maintenance stuff. A very nice couple though.

Shirl...hope your niece made it home ok. You will have to rope Clenton into watching Call the Midwife with you now *grin*. I'm no where near where I had wanted to be by this time in my health journey. My sleep schedule and work schedule seem to be overlapping each other and I just can't seem to get interested in eating much. When it's hot out, all I want is water or something to drink, like smoothies that I make myself. At least they are healthy ones! Have a great day today. Hugs.

Kathryn...so glad to hear that your hubby's fever broke and he was able to come home. Thinking of both you as you make this journey together. Hugs.

I'm working my way up with the team points...got another 3 yesterday! Where are all the big numbers???

Hope everyone has a great day today. Hugs to you all,
Wanda

Good morning all, it's a wet one here in MI, hoping it clears off before niece has to fly out, she's heading back home to Alabama this afternoon. We finished watching Call the Midwife series last night, I love that show. Internet was giving me trouble yesterday, glad I could get on today. Hope all have a terrific Tuesday.

Kathryn glad hubby's fever broke and all is ok.

Wanda glad things are moving right along for the kids.

Mermaid hope your back is doing better.

Cocoa what's on your agenda today?

Pris, Mauri, Wyndy and all others have a terrific Tuesday.

Hugs,

At hubby's cancer treatment he was running a fiver and was taken to the emergency room. The fiver broke and his blood work was good. So they sent him home. I was under so much stress I had a mini binge but am doing better myself today.

Good Morning all,

I have another early start this morning at work. Attempting to catch up on things so that I can still have my Friday off. *grin*.

Kaeli's medical procedure went well yesterday, now we wait for the results. Trusting that they come quickly and that they are positive results.

The kids move has gone well and they will getting their new carpet installed on Thursday. The painting is coming along and they are slowly getting settled once again.

Garry was able to make a start on pressure washing the back deck last evening in preparation for the re-staining of it. That will be one more major chore off his "to do" list. My garden is looking good. Now all I need is for my potato plants to start flowering and I'm good to go!

Garry noticed one lone little apple starting to form on my apple tree. YAY! I noticed two little lemons on my lemon tree. We didn't think we would get anything this year with the crazy weather we have been having. Nature is so amazing.

Kathryn...Glad to hear that your hubby is doing better and the fever is gone. Hope that all his blood work comes back with positive results. Hugs.

Mermaid Kathy...how's the back doing?

Shirl...What's on your agenda for this week?

Cocoa, Mawmaw, Mauri, and anyone else that pops in...have a great day.

I'm out the door in a few minutes for work, see you all later.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hubby was running a fiver but is all better today. He is going to have blood work done today so no eating. I don't like to cook my breakfast when he can't eat so I have had no breakfast either . I am going to treat myself to some thing at Starbucks for my combined breakfast and morning snack. That way I have the staved calories and will just get one thing and not over eat.

Good Morning all,

I'm heading out for work a wee bit earlier this morning as I need to leave for most of the work day. I had forgotten that today is the day that I need to go with Kaeli to a medical appointment and procedure. She needs someone with her and I'm it! I had sent an email off to work late Friday afternoon when Kaeli reminded me...it won't be a problem taking the time off, I just feel bad that I didn't give them more warning. Ah well, it is what it is. If I was sick, they would have to do without me the whole day!

The kids are all moved into their new place. Shy has this week off work to be at home with the dog so that she will get used to the house before having to be left all day while they are at work. This morning they are heading out to buy new carpet for the master bedroom and Kyle's uncle has arranged to have it installed tomorrow for them. The carpet in the bedroom was left in a big mess by the previous owners. Not an expense they had planned on right away, but they are blessed to have family that is helping them out.

Mawmaw....enjoy your trip to the beach. What a great time to look forward to. Relax, recharge and be active *grin*.

Priscilla...have a great day...enjoy.

Cocoa... Nothing like taking some time to chill in the sun with a very yummy sounding snack.

Kathryn...hope your walk helped you to shake off the bad dream. How's hubby doing?

Mermaid Kathy...how's the back today?

Shirl...hope you had great family time this past weekend. Next weekend my trucking brother and his wife are going to be in town and are coming for a visit. It seems like every weekend for the next little while we are busy! As long as we have sunshine though, I'm good *grin*.

Have a wonderful day all, see you later.

Hugs,
Wanda

Wishing all you wonderful "positive people" a great week. My trip to the beach is this week so I know mine will be good.
My plan is to do lots of physical things and we will have a kitchen so it should be fine for the most part.
I have learned that I need to fit my "Spark" plans into the life that I live.

Trying to get motivated. I am tired today! Not sure why, but am. Ahhh... well, maybe off to the backyard to chill in the sunshine a little later. As long as I don't fall asleep in it I am good, cuz that would NOT be good! I don't need a burn.

I am going to go munch on my crackers and goat cheese/honey/raspberry concoction I threw together yesterday! yummy!!!

Good Morning all,

We had another thunder boomer roll through last night, but it looks like we are in for a lovely day today. Once again I won't have to water the garden *grin*.

The kids move went great yesterday. They had lots of help and now it's just the straggler bits and pieces and cleaning the condo and getting it ready for their renter.

Skye (the doggie) was very concerned yesterday...her day was all over the place. Hopefully she is a little less stressed today as they spent the night at the new place and it will soon feel like home. Shyra took a week off work so that Skye can settle in and know that it is home. She is a little rescue dog, so when her routine is upset, she gets a bit stressed. We know she has Papillon in her and think there might be a bit of Jack Russel also. She is a delightful little girl and very well behaved.

Shirl...we had grilled corn on the cob a couple of weeks ago and it was so good. I brushed it with a dry mix of salsa and sour cream (from Watkins). Oh my...it was a hit and now I'm going to have to see if I can purchase some more of the mix! I even used the mix a couple of days later in my mashed potatoes when I couldn't find my dill! I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Alzheimers is such a wicked disease. Have a blessed day today.

Kathryn...woo hoo on meeting your goal! Good for you. You are doing awesome.

Mermaid Kathy...ouch on the back! Hope the heat and ice help you. Hugs.

Priscilla, Coco...sounds like you had a great light show to enjoy. Enjoy the day today also.


I'm off to make up a meat loaf for supper tonight. Garry has been requesting one so best make him happy *grin*.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good Sunday morning, we have blue sky and sun. Serenity Sunday is posted. Yesterday was nice out at DD's, we had grilled hot dogs, grilled sweet corn, potato chips, tomatoes, avocados, banana bread and mini cupcakes with red, white and blue decorations. The weather was perfect for being outside, not to hot and a lovely breeze. Later today will be going to a visitation for a lady that went to our church, she passed away on Tuesday, she had Alzheimers and was only 76, Alice was such a lovely person, I loved working with her in the kitchen at church, she always had a way of making me laugh, RIP dear Alice.

Coco welcome to the team .

Mermaid "ouch" take care of you!

Have a blessed and serene Sunday.

Hey Sparkies...

Sounds like everyone had or is still having a good time.

Wanda - What kind of pup is Skye? I'm such a log lover. hehehe

I managed to throw my back out and have been nursing it with ice and bio-freeze today and even turn on my S-C-Stimulator to see if it would help some. The Upside... I'm heading to the recliner to relax. hehehe Wish me luck.

Have a good weekend everyone...

I went to bed just as fireworks were going off. I had taken a sleeping pill so did not hear much of them. Hubby and I are just not in to that stuff. We had our usual dinner with watermelon for desert. I drank a 24 oz bottle of water before dinner and was feeling to full after dinner. Did not feel like eating evening snacks and that is some thing I have been working on not doing.

emoticon went down one more pound so I met my goal of losing 3 pounds this month, next goal is to lose 10 by December 31st.

It's great to hear from you, Debbie, in Washington state! My DD's husband's name is Lance, so I am happily prejudiced in his favor already !

We, too sat outside and enjoyed a refreshing breeze that came up toward sunset--there were thunderstorms to the south and west of us--we just had pretty skies.

Cooked our steaks and roasted veggies for our anniversary supper. Watermelon for dessert.

Watched the lovely light show out over our valley and so to sleep!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

HI everyone!

Sounds like people had a great 4th yesterday! We went to mother in-laws for bbq which was a lot of fun! Lots of great food, friends, family. Nice weather! Not too hot or too cool! Yes, we live in Washington State, so go figure on the weather sometimes! LOL

My mother in law loves to entertain and has some great recipes! (People did bring items to this bbq though.)
FOOD! Appetizers, brats, salmon, roasted veggies, salad, baked beans. Then there was cheesecake, ice cream with a choice of two toppings, fresh blended rhubarb, or Kahlua, or brownies!

Then, my husband (Lance) came home about 8pm in time to watch over the house and all the fireworks in our neighborhood! We got our fire pit going about 9:45pm and just sat outside in the backyard and enjoyed the show!

Have a great day everyone! Make it GREAT!
I am relaxing and having my Chai green tea, and may go to the Farmers Market a little later!

Deb

Good morning all, hope all had a happy & safe 4th. There were lots of booming going on last night, our town doesn't do fireworks on the 4th, I usually watch them on our PBS station, but my niece and I wanted to watch more of Call the Midwife series.Going out to DD's this afternoon for a cookout. It's a beautiful day out lots of blue sky and sun. Silly Saturday is posted. Enjoy your Saturday.

Good Morning everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed the July 4th celebrations and are ready to enjoy the remainder of the weekend.

We have the cargo van parked in our driveway. Garry was able to borrow one from his work so that the kids can hopefully get everything moved today to their new place. They will be living in chaos for a bit as the painter moves around all their things and gets the interior all spruced up for them. They are also needing to replace the carpet in the bedrooms and of course get things unpacked. They are blessed to have a great long term renter for their condo. Hopefully that works out well for them being landlords also.

We had a thunderstorm roll through last night and it's still overcast, windy and looking like there might be a bit more rain to come. Plus side...it's a closed in cargo van, so nothing will blow away or get wet and I don't have to water my garden *grin*.

I will be doggie sitting again today. Skye is such a good little girl that I love having her here.

Welcome Cocoa, hope you had a great time visiting and then watching the fireworks. I love fireworks displays. So amazing. They are very controlled here though. It is illegal to set off fireworks unless you have a permit and it is in an open area. Have a great weekend.

Pricilla...a belated Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby. What a great way to celebrate...with fireworks and big parties all around you *grin*.

Shirl, Mermaid Kathy and Kathryn...enjoy your weekend and all the celebrations that are happening.

Must run as I'm being told my assistance is required. Have a great day all,

Hugs,
Wanda

It was so pretty here tonight! We have a great view of fireworks going on all around us. Our 33rd anniversary present to each other was the lounge chair view of the fireworks visible from our living room out over the valley. We had a grilled steak with asparagus and zucchini also done on the grill followed by fresh seedless watermelon. A wonderful celebration. Now off to bed.
See y'all tomorrow!

Happy 4th of July Sparkies... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Wanda - I was just gonna ask what the doggy's name was and you called her Sky? Is that right? hehehe What a great grandma you are to take care of her... (Her right?) hehehe
Sounds like the kids are coming along good with their cleaning and painting and such. You are helping a lot if you are feeding them. It's hard work and they are probably tired out and very hungry after a long day there.
Oh and I had to giggle when you said you were wishing for AC for the couple days it's so hot there. That is how it is here but the opposite. We only have a couple really cold freezing days here in winter. We rarely turn on the heat. hehehe

Cocoa - Sounds like a good day planned. And hope that you enjoy your day as well.

Our 4th is very quiet. Just the 2 of us. I did get some pool time today. So that was nice and refreshing as the rains have cooled the pool down some.
I made pasta & tuna salad and cut up watermelon and Andy had bought lots of other fruit so we have some healthy snacks. But as I sit here I think I am smelling him making a cake in there. Hmmmm Good think I'm not that into cakes. hehehe Or should I say thank goodness it's not cookies. hehehe

Shirl - Hope you are having a good day out at DD's.

Kathryn - We got the best watermelon I've had in a long time. Yum I'm so enjoying it. hehehe
I'm with you on the ribs... I love them... and just hate it when Andy buys them. Cuz I know I have no will power with them. hehehe So better not to buy them at all. hehehe

Priscilla - Happy Anniversary to you and your DH. Hope you have wonderful day. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope everyone enjoy's this day.

~~~S*P*L*A*S*H*E*S~~~ (Wanda hope they cool you this evening) hehehe

Happy 4th everyone!

I know I am a newbie and I don't know some of your stories, etc.. or you know mine...yet... BUT... I am wishing everyone a FABULOUS day, weekend! Enjoy the time with family, friends and time to reflect, relax amidst the noisy fireworks tonight! emoticon

It's going to be a noisy one tonight since it is on a Friday night! Let the No Getting To Sleep at any decent hour start! LOL

What are your plans for the 4th today?

US - We are heading to my mother in laws this afternoon to visit, bbq, etc... Then we are coming back home to watch the fireworks in our own neighborhood since there are quite a few that occur all around us. AND, to water things down and make sure the house is "safe"!

Have a great day!

Happy 4th to all in the States! It's our 33rd wedding anny and DH and I are just takin' it easy!

Good Morning all,

Wow, did we have a hot one yesterday! I had the fans going last night, but sleep was illusive with the heat. It's these one or two days that we get in the year that make you wish you had AC *grin*.

The kids are moving this weekend and I will be minding little dog so that they don't have to worry about her. They have pulled the carpet in the Master bedroom and hope to have that installed before they set up their furniture in that room. Painting is coming along as is the cleaning. Once all that is done and they have their things moved over, it will start to feel like home very soon.

I made up 4 pizzas for supper last night and everyone gathered here to grab something to eat. I might be able to do the lifting and carrying of boxes, but I can help out by having food ready. I think I got the easy part of the job!

It looks like another warm and beautiful day today. The anticipated thunderstorm and winds didn't really make a showing last night, so will have to go out and do some watering this morning. Shy is going to drop doggie off with me as I'm not working today. I will have company and Skye will be happy to not be in her kennel when it's so warm.

Sounds like everyone has been doing well and having fun with.

Mermaid Kathy...so glad you had a great time with Donna and at Disney World. So much fun.
Kathryn..woo hoo on the shorts and needing a belt!

Shirl..don't you just love it when you click on something and you have no idea what you did, but it works! So glad you are back up and running with your computer.

Wishing everyone a great and wonderful Friday.
hugs,
Wanda

Your Spark visit sounded wonderful and the Mickey ears sound yummy. We need to treat ourselves now and than. One set of ears is not over eating and a problem now if you ate a dozen we would worry for you.

I forgot to post the positive quote.

Life is to short to spend hating your body.

I put on a pair of pink checked shorts from last summer and found that they are to big around the waist. So I put on my pink belt that I don't hardly ever wear and had to go in one smaller hole

Good Morning Sparkies...

Nice to see all of you today.

I had a wonderful day yesterday meeting up with my Spark friend Donna who is from the state of Ohio. We had brunch at Perkins and then went over to Disney Village to wander around the little Disney shops and of course Chat up a storm. hehehe Her family is down for a week to take her granddaughter to Disney World. And of course the almost 3 year old was loving it. She had posted pic's of her in her Princess dress (that she bought in advance online cuz they are $64 at Disney emoticon ) for the big day of meeting all the Princess at Disney. One of her favorites is ... of course.... Ariel the Mermaid. hehehe So Donna told her that she was going to have brunch with her mermaid friend. She pouted and said she wanted to go too. hehehe So while we shopped at the Disney Village I found a Ariel Pen and got one for her and yep me too. hehehe I just love watching little girls live the dream of being a Princess. hehehe
Anyway... While the day was wonderful... it was also very hot and humid. The shops are all AC so we ducked in lots of them. And we hit Goofy's Candy shop where we indulged in a little chocolate covered brownie Mickey Ears. hehehe I know bad but I needed energy to continue on. I was so proud that I made it as long as I did but that was thanks to all the places to sit and rest. I started having problems catching my breath so she wondered back to the car and I made my way home.
It was such a wonderful day. I look forward to meeting my next Spark friend. hehehe

Wanda - Wow too bad they left that house so filthy. Were they evicted or something or do you think that they were just piggies. hehehe I could never live like that either. ugh Well good thing that Shy and Kyle are young and full of energy. It will be a wonderful experience for them to make it their own. Wishing them good luck with it all.
And oh what a great Grandmother you are to bring the puppy over to visit with you today. hehehe I would have too. Actually my newest grandson is a French Bulldog mix. And I know first hand that he slobbers or drools... UGH. I kept going after him wiping up the floors. hehehe He is just getting to know us so and is still leery of us. Well maybe it's just that he is more interested in my 2 girl dogs. hehehe

Kathryn - Glad that your DH has a 3 day weekend. Enjoy it. Oh and Congrats to you on your loss...

Shirl - Glad you are back with us. Hope you can figure out your computer problem. Enjoy that cooler weather and send some to me. It's so hot and humid here. hehehe Glad that your DS is liking his new job. And I'm not sure I'd like driving a semi in the mountains. hehehe but I am a chicken too. hehehe I know that Andy's DS was liking it but I think he's looking to drive with someone else now. They are hiring people in at the same wage he is making so he's not happy about that at all. So hope he gets that all figured out.
Anyway enjoy your Saturday with your DD and family.

Hi Pricsilla... Nice to see you. hehehe

Hello to all I didn't address.

I'm taking the rest of the day off... letting my body rest up from all the activity.

Have a blessed day everyone...

Friday is almost here. What with hubby going to treatment all week it is almost like he has a job and I have to help with getting him ready. It is like I have a job too. They are not doing treatment on the fourth so we have a three day weekend emoticon emoticon emoticon
Since I did the tame your sweet tooth challenge I have not had any chocolate and have not craved it in weeks. I was eating a lot of candy bars and my weight was yo yoing. Now the scale is going down.

Good morning. We had a rainy night and it cooled down to the low 50's, only suppose to be in the low 70's today, it's a welcomed change from the hot and humid weather. Had trouble getting on again, but seems to be better today, so wasn't able to log in again for a couple days.DS is in his third week of on the job training, all this week his runs will be interstate, last week he went to PA, OH, IN and MI, he said they ran into a thunderstorm in PA and that was his first experience of driving in the mountains, he seems to be excited and loving being out on the road. DD invited us out on Saturday, it's suppose to be back in the 80's then.

Wanda that is too bad about the condition of the kids new home, I don't understand how people can do that, but thank goodness they are young and have family and friends to help them out.

Kathryn emoticon on the weight loss and emoticon on sticking with the small bag of chips.

Mermaid hope you had a nice time with your spark friend.

Pris enjoy your time with your sis and family.

Wishing all a happy Thursday!

Good Morning everyone,

It was a hot one yesterday. I went over and picked up Shy's little dog as it was very hot in their condo and poor little doggie was not happy. Brought her over to our place where she could be outside in the breeze and shade. I will likely have her off and on over the next few days as the kids are moving and doing repairs in their house.
We went over to see their place and felt so bad for them. The previous owners left a real mess for them to clean up. I can't imagine leaving (or living) in the mess that they left. The fridge and stove were really bad...I don't think they cleaned at all in the 2 months since the kids bought the place. The shower in the bathroom took Kyle and a whole bottle of CLR to lift the dirt. They have had to pull out the carpet in the master bedroom and will have to replace it. On the plus side...they had already made arrangements for someone to come in and paint the entire interior, so no having to do that themselves. They have family also that is helping them out. Garry is going over tonight after work to help Kyle with baseboards. Many of them are missing! It looks like they only put up baseboards in spots where you would see baseboards, not behind furniture! Wow!
It will require some hard work to begin with, but at least they will know that the place is clean and they have been able to put their own stamp on it, even if it's sooner than they would have done.

Today is my Friday and I'm ready for it. It's been crazy busy at work and looks like it might be this way for a bit. Plus side of that....the work day will go by fast *grin*.

Pricilla....enjoy your holiday time and your visit with your sister. Safe travels.

Kathryn...congratulations on the weight elimination. Snacking in the evenings is my thing that I work hard at avoiding. I'm good if I don't have anything, but if I do...then I want!

I have a nice salad to take to work with my for my lunch today and a banana. I have made my thermos full of green tea too...I'm good to go.

Shirl, Mauri, Mermaid, Heather, and anyone else that pops in...have a great and successful day.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hi everyone! I'm back for a while and then it's off to the Jersey shore with my DD, her husband and my grandson. We will be visiting my 83 yr old sister--don't want to miss any chance to see her--then we're back to Texas mid- month.

Sorry I don't seem to stay connected. Don't know what the deal is, but I used to always get a post notice for the Chit Chat lounge....

I have one new piece of art posted in my "Excuses" blog.
Hope to stay with you guys!!

Positive quote-A 30-minute walk is only 2% of your day, no excuses

emoticon Went down 2 pounds emoticon have not had a day of over eating in 13 days and it is showing. I have not been having my evening snack. Last night I really wanted a bag of chips and had a talk with myself. Eating one small bag would not be a binge but buying a big bag because it is a better deal could and would lead to a binge. I had my one small bag and was happy with that.

Good Morning all,

I'm running a bit behind this morning. It was so hot here yesterday that sleeping last night was a bit difficult. Not complaining though as we had sunshine and a beautiful Canada Day. I didn't fall asleep until the wee hours of this morning and then woke up just before the alarm went off for work. I quickly scanned through all the posts and will have to come back later to actually read everything properly.

Welcome back Shirl...we sure did miss you.

Kathryn...glad that hubby is doing pretty good. Keeping you both in my prayers.

Mermaid Kathy...thanks for the sunshine! Thinking of you as you head into the stormy season and also as you get to meet up with your spark friend. Have a great visit.

Heather...keep up the great work.

Sorry if I missed anyone, I will check back later on. If I missed you..I am still wishing you a great day!

Hugs,
Wanda

Positive quote-Eating healthy makes me happy

Kathy hope you don't have to much emoticon We could use a little here but looks like we won't have any until next fall. We are so dry we have to buy bottled water and not use the tap for much. Showers are getting shorter. I am not taking showers just to cool down, running the AC instead.

Heather emoticon on getting your workout in, you are doing emoticon

Wanda Happy Canada day emoticon

Shril emoticon you were so missed

Hubby doing better today after his treatment did not get dizzy but is more tired in the afternoon than most days. I am doing good on staying on track with my walking and eating right.

Glad you are having a nice visit with your Niece too. Enjoy your movies.

Well our first "storm" of the season is now upgraded to Tropical Storm Aurthur. We will probably get some rain tomorrow and hopefully that is all. Looks like it will just head on up the coast.

Hello, hello, hello, I am so,so happy to be back on here, have missed everyone so much. I accidentally did the right thing and got my computer working right again, I am so not a technical person when it comes to my computer, but am glad it's working and I don't have to get help from anyone.

Enjoying my niece's company, she'll be flying back to Alabama on July 8. Last night we watched the first series of Call the Midwife, I love that program, my youngest DD got me the 3 series set on DVD for Mother's Day. Both of us have been doing lots of reading also.

Wanda and Mauri thanks for keeping Silly Saturday and Serenity Sunday going for me during my computer issues.

It's been hot and humid here but last night we had a thunderstorm come through and now it's much, much cooler, only suppose to be in the 70's for the rest of the week and the humidity is gone, thank goodness, we've been running the AC, was able to turn it off this morning.

Wishing all a terrific Tuesday and a Happy Canada Day to all our friends across the way.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning Sparkies...

I had a bad day yesterday and could not figure out what was going on with me. I've been over heating as I put it for a couple days (using cool cloths on my neck and bright red face) and did not sleep well night before last. Had to call the cable people and was so frustrated I could not control how I was feeling. It got really scary. I ended up taking my BP to see if It was elevated and was really high for me. 153/95 pulse was 79. So that had to be what was going on for a few days. I've always had really good BP but notice that the past few months it had gone up a little. The dr's were ok with it so I was too. But after yesterday I will pay close attention.
On a positive note... I do feel better this morning and my BP is back down and so is my pulse.

Tomorrow is the big day of meeting with one of my spark friends from another group. She is down with her family at Disney world and posting pic's like crazy... don't know how they can take the temps out there. hehehe But her DD and GD are young... hehehe Wish me luck as I have to go pick her up in the major tourist area and they drive like they are from another state there. Bahahaha emoticon

Another thing worth mentioning is we have our first tropical depression for the year. No name yet but it is circling right off our eastern FL shores. We will probably just get some rain from it. Which to me is a positive too... It will help cool us down a couple days. hehehe

Wanda - Glad all went well with the dinner the other night. I can taste them ribs... YUM! Moss huh? Well here's some more emoticon Hope it helps. hehehe

Kathryn - Hope hubby is feeling better today. I'm sure he enjoyed the SF ice cream cone. Yum. And you are right that pool would be great in the evening. Still not cool here in the evening. Muggy for sure. hehehe And Skeeters get me every time. hehehe

Heather - Good luck with them exercises... I know that when I was in the aftercare physical therapy it would help me to feel better too. Then I would do things I shouldn't and hurt my self... so go slow and easy. emoticon

Have a good day everyone... SHIRL I miss you!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good Morning all, It's Happy Canada Day here today. Celebrations going on all over the country. We have a big parade starting around 10am and then celebrations for the whole family happening at the town center. Not sure yet how much we will take in.

Shy and Kyle got possession of their new home yesterday, so we will probably go over and check things out with them and maybe watch the fireworks this evening from their place.

We had a great visit with Garry's brother and his wife on Sunday. They headed back to BC yesterday morning. Garry and I both had to work yesterday and today we have off due to it being July 1st.

Hope everyone has a great day today.
Hugs,
Wanda

Positive quote-If your going to doubt something doubt your limits

Wanda sending you some emoticon and emoticon it is going to be 108 today I have plenty to share. Your dinner sounded so yummy, now I want some cucumber salad.

Kathy 86 in the pool that is warm. I think I would enjoy that on a cool night under the stairs, floating on my back. You have it so good!!!

It is 86 out already, it is only 8:40 in the morning. I am going to the store to buy some sugar free ice cream and cones. Hubby and I will have a little treat on this hot night. His treatments are going well. He is having dizzy spells and head aches now. They come and go.
