It is -21 with the wind chill this morning. Can you believe that! Oh well, summer will come in July and we will be upset with the temperatures over 100. It's just that it's been so cold all winter long no real breaks at all it seems.

My leg really is still puffed up and yesterday I could hardly bend the ankle to stand. I look so funny, one fairly thin leg and one tree trunk. The cellulitis is starting to move, it takes such a long time to move fluid from the legs. The bite itself is healing much better with that last round of meds. They are done now and I don't think I'll get more unless it starts up again. It only hurts if I hit it against the bed.

Ted got the estimate back from the SGI appraiser. They are going to fix the truck, looks like about $16,000. The air bags themselves are 7,000. Seems kinda high to me but then everything these days seems high to me LOL

Well, off to get ready to drive on the ice downtown to deliver Avon packages.

God bless your endeavours
Wyndy

Hey Wanda, when you have the chance (!!) could you tell us (or maybe everyone else knows already??) what it is that you do? Sounds interesting!
Love, Pris

Good Morning everyone,

It is indeed a wonderful place to come to feel support, encouragement and such great uplifting friendship. I'm so glad that others find the same here.

I'm off and running early this morning as work is really piling up. My co-worker that usually does the unpacking and receiving along with me is away this week and wouldn't you know it...we have been getting huge shipments everyday! Not complaining though as I would much rather be busy than looking for things to do. I am going in early today and likely staying late too as it's a short work week with Easter right around the corner.

I have a vendor meeting this morning also to fit into my schedule as well as I need to arrange for several of us from our department to head down to Calgary next month to meet and tour the facility of another one of our major vendors. I need to look into renting a vehicle that will hold all of us while I'm at it. Should be fun *grin*

Priscilla...once again I just want to say thank you for sharing your art work with us. You are a very talented artist. I love, love, love your family series.

Shirl, Mauri, Kathryn, Mermaid Kathy, Lightenting, Greycatbird, and whomever else pops in today....wishing you all a great and blessed day. I'll stop in once I get home from work to see what you have all been up to.

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

YIKES! Who wants to be picked on??! That's too bad.

I agree, CHANGING_TURTLE. The support we get here is warm, welcoming and uplifting.

Positive quote-Welcome to today another day, another chance, feel free to change.

Walked to the supermarket again this morning, such a lovely day. I really enjoy my morning walks with my walking buddy. We most times stop at Starbucks for a coffee drink of some kind, right now I am into iced drinks of course with this warm weather, sugar free and with non fat milk.
This group is so nice, I joined another group the day before yesterday and they are all ready picking on me. Some people are bullies.

Sue welcome to the group this is a nice group of loving people. I have gotten nothing but support and love from them.

Priscilla your art work is just amazing. My DD has that happen in her garden too, it seems like each year it's something different that pops up, surprise here I am watch me grow, lol. I always enjoyed gardening when we lived where we could have them. I think we women have a lot in common with the men in our lives. Hope all are having a good afternoon. I didn't want to go anywhere today, but there's only one can of cat food in the cupboard and we are almost out of bread, so guess you know where I'll be going.

Hi Ho all! emoticon

After a day of high winds and thunderstorms yesterday, today is sunny and beautiful here in central Texas. Our high today will be around 65.
I hang our laundry out, so that will be on my to do list.
After DH gets home this afternoon it will be my turn in the truck (we're a one vehicle family) to go get dog food, a heat lamp for our indoor turtles, and, for DH (get this:) a frozen Edward's Key Lime pie!! Thanks to SP and the tame your sweet tooth challenge, I'm not interested. He gets to eat the whole thing by himself!! emoticon

BTW I must agree with those of you who have occasionally 'difficult' DH's (DDH's?) -- mine is in constant pain, minor to major, from a back injury when he worked off shore on an oil rig 30+ years ago. He will rarely take anything for it, and after 33 years of marriage, I know when to keep my mouth shut and leave him alone. He doesn't want advice or fussing about it. It's just the way life is. Ah me.

Oh, I have volunteer vegetables of some sort coming up in the garden beds. And there is lettuce EVERYWHERE. Beds, paths, you name it! Our outdoor Meyer lemons got zapped by our last freeze but are totally leafing out again. If we get fruit this year it will be very late. I think the heat will get the blossoms, tho. Not sure.

Everyone--take care. You are very much loved and appreciated. emoticon

Good morning all. Looking forward to a better day today, DH is able togo for longer periods of time before he has to take a pain pill and muscle relaxer, so things must be on the mend, praying that is so. It's snowing here right now, may have an inch on the ground, but this isn't going to stick around temp is suppose to be in the low 40's tomorrow and get a little warmer each day.

I am so glad Sunday was such a nice day for our family get together, the kids were able to go outside and play and we adults sat out on the patio by the community room and visited.

DD's first day at her new job yesterday went very well, she is so happy to be back to work.

Welcome to the team Sue, looking forward to getting to know you.

Priscilla will have to check out your art soon and thanks for sharing with us.

Wanda, it's nice to know how many women have inpatient, sometimes ornery men too, lol. The venting yesterday helped and I appreciate being able to do that once in awhile.

Kathryn your new socks sound cute, you'll have to take pictures of them.

Mermaid Kathy hear it's suppose to get pretty hot down there today. We have the white stuff but it won't be around for very long.

Lighting, Mauri, Indiana Kathy, Wyndy and anyone I might have missed hope your week is going good.

Enjoy this day!

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning everyone,

WELCOME to Graycatbird...very nice to see you here and looking forward to walking this journey with you. Just jump right in and if you read something or need an answer to something that doesn't make sense to you...ask away, one of us will help you out. I'm from Canada and we are still experiencing bouts of winter, but I like to garden too. Hoping that by the end of next month I will be able to put some stuff in the ground. We usually have a snow in May, so not much gets planted until at least after the May long weekend.

Wyndy...I'm so done with all this nasty weather, but on the other hand at least we aren't having flooding, hurricanes or earthquakes *grin*. Every time I see the weather report, I think, yep, Wyndy should be getting this in a couple of days! How's the dog bite healing?

Priscilla...I'm looking forward to checking out your art work. Will have to do it after I get home from work though. I will thank you ahead of time for sharing it.

Mermaid Kathy...jump in the pool and let those long locks float all around you *grin* I find the smell of my lemon tree flowers a bit overpowering too, but it sure looks pretty. I should hopefully soon see some buds appearing on the trees outside. My little pear and apple tree hopefully will produce something this year.

Shirl...I think all guys are the same...they expect instant healing and have no patience for doing what they need to to get better *grin*. Hope Clenton is healing though, I don't know of anything that is worse than a constant back ache. Hugs to you.

Kathryn...yay on being able to get out there and do some walking. I managed a short walk yesterday outdoors. It's still pretty yucky in many places but hoping by the weekend it will be safe to walk outside. Thank you for always putting up such great quotes.

Mauri...You are one busy lady with the Hope bus. Hoping that you are finding success with locating a new place to live. Lots of hugs.

Sorry if I missed anyone...I'll pop back in again after work.

Hugs,
Wanda

Thanks, Priscilla! Do your friend's children like Portland? Vienna is near where my grandmother lived -- Fayette -- and we used to spend vacations there when I was a kid. I think we used to go to Saturday night dances in Vienna!

I have a friend who has children in Portland--he and his wife live in Vienna. Boy, your winter pics are always astounding, but hey, I'm from central Texas, so there you go!

This is a fantastic team-very chit-chatty and up beat.

Look forward to your posts.

Hi, everyone!

I joined this team today -- I'm trying to change my attitude to be more positive about my ability to meet my health goals, and this seemed like a good place to be!

I live in Portland, Maine, am 67 years old, and retired in January. I'm really enjoying it! I'm an avid gardener and am looking forward to having time to be out there as much as I want.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Went to the VA this morning he just needs to stay on the pain pills and muscle relaxers and give it time. right now I am not happy with him as he will not do what he's suppose to do and we are not getting along, feel like smacking him. So my mood is not anywhere near being positive right now, sorry. Maybe it'll be better tomorrow.

Hugs,

Kathy I know what you mean about the orange trees blooming, they smell good but cause my noise to run and my eyes tear up. On my walks most days I have to deal with sneezing and wiping my eyes every step or so but I love the smell of those trees. We only have at least one tree every block a round the neighborhood.

Wanda sorry your knee is acting up hope it gets better with some rest.

Shirl hope your hubby gets well soon

Positive quote- If plan "A" fails remember there are 25 more letters.

Went for a nice walk to the supermarket and Starbucks, such a nice day today will be getting in to the 80's. May rain this week end but just a little, hope the kids can have there Easter egg hunts. I got some cute Easter socks yesterday that put a smile on my face, one has bunnies, one has chicks and one has baby ducks. Just some thing fun I do for me.

Good Morning Sparkies...

Happy Monday everyone!

Not much happening here today. DH has DD working on one of the rentals that needed a new tub. Glad I don't have to help. hehehe
I do need to wash my hair today. It's a pain cuz it's so long but hey can't have a mermaid with Dirty hairs right? hehehe emoticon emoticon

Shirl - Sure hope that Clenton is doing better today and hope the Dr. can help. It's hard to watch the ones we love in pain. emoticon

Wanda - Hope you taking some down time helped your knee as well as letting you catch up on your reading... Sounds like you have a plan for your vacation. Whatever works right? Oh and Andy would love your Lemon scented house. hehehe But for me that would bother my sinuses bad. hehehe We just got over orange blossom season as there is a large orange grove behind us. It smells so good but I can only take small doses... hehehe

Wyndy - Hope that you and Wanda get some spring type weather soon. Mother Nature is NOT playing nice up in the GWN!... hehehe

Off to see Priscilla's art....

Have a great day everyone...

Holy Smokes, it's -19 this morning. This had better be the last hurrah, if you know what I mean!

Ted is back home, very sore and rather nauseated. I think he's still in shock somewhat. He took my car to work this morning. We have total ice on the streets and his rental has those useless all weather tires. He never would have made it out to the dam with that 6 inches of snow we had Saturday. Goodness, it looks like December out there this morning. Oh well, at least we're not flooding. I hate flooding, too much work and I think it's colder than snow.
He brought me home a treat, a blueberry muffin. Well, fortunately I looked at the ingredient list first, there was 31 g of sugar and I'm allowed a total of 5 in each item. So, no muffin for breakfast this morning. I was shocked at the total, I hardly ever have muffins and haven't really bothered to learn the count. Guess I won't be having any more in the future either!

Today is stay home and start my Avon order. Good day for it.

Pferg66 - my tracker had to be reinstalled every time I shut down the computer. When I contacted support they sent me a new one but it is hung up in customs at the moment so I don't know if it will be any different.

God bless your endeavours
Wyndy

Not too much to report to y'all -
Hi to everyone and have a great Monday.

My Facebook page and Spark Page have a few of my pieces posted now.

All my numbers are going in the right direction. Yay! I do like the Activity Tracker, but my computer doesn't. I have to redownload a lot. Seeing the results is the reward, tho.

Off to work inside until the weather decides what it wants to do.

Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

Good Morning all,

I had a technology free day yesterday for the most part. I choose to disconnect from the internet for one day and just be with my family and do some much needed reading.
I have several books checked out that I need to work my way through before they are due back.

Kathryn...great quote! Glad to see you are on the mend again. Way to go on maintaining. I'm looking forward to all the puddles drying up so that walking and getting splashed by passing cars isn't an issue. I didn't have as good a week last week with my steps as my knee for some reason was really stiff. Not sure if I've been pushing it too much and it decided to protest of if it was weather related. It's a new week and I'll keep on moving it. Have a great day. Hugs.

Priscilla... looking forward to seeing your creations. Nice to see you on the posts again. Hugs.

Shirl...hope that Clenton is doing better and that you get some answers from his doctor today.Keeping you both in my prayers. The snow that we got has disappeared now. It's still pretty wet out but so nice to see the ground again and not all covered in white! Garry and I have decided that we are going to go to visit an aunt of his in Saskatchewan and then come home and just do some day trips with maybe an odd overnight here and there. With the upcoming wedding and then the cats medical bill we want to be a bit careful with the spending. I'm just looking forward to having some time off from work and spending time with my hubby. Have a great day. Hugs.

Mermaid Kathy...I'm so looking forward to listening to my "ocean trees" again. Before we get all the lawn furniture out again though, we need to re-stain the back deck. Hoping to get that done while we are on some days off at the end of this month...it will all depend on how warm it is. I'm looking forward to seeing flowers and color once again. My lemon tree has been flowering like crazy. The house smells like lemons. I have to transplant it though and hoping that won't create any issues for it. I'm still working on getting a greenhouse in my back yard but with the wedding coming up, it's moved further down the list again. *grin*. Have a great day splashing. Hugs.

Time for me to get myself in gear and head out the door for work. See you all later.

Hugs,
Wanda

Have been having a rough time and computer was not working but every thing seems to be working now. Missed you all very much, I will try and get back in to the swing of things again. Have not gained any weight but have not lost any either. Pants still fit the same, thank goodness. Have been trying to eat better and with the good weather have been taking walks most every day.

Good Morning Positive Sparkies...

Happy Serenity Sunday to you all.

Priscilla - Nice to see you again. You can't rely on them notifications. I rarely get them anymore so I rely on the link from one from way back to get me here when I remember. I look forward to seeing your "art"... And just so you know I'm a big SciFi person so I'm sure I will enjoy them. hehehe I like unusual things. hehehe But not sure what you mean about Off... so can't wait to see. hehehe

Shirl - So sorry that Clenton had to go back to the ER last night. If it's that bad he may have a pinched nerve and they are no fun. I suffered with Sciatica for a long time and couldn't even sit at all... And walking was with my walker and that was in January of 2000. It is so painful. So sound like he may need a MRI to see what is going on for sure. ((hugs)) and prayer for you both.

Wanda - Glad that Kismet is coming along. Poor baby. I hate when our furbabies are sick. Hope that hamburger does the trick for her. She needs to eat something.
Oh and Glad you liked my flowers and got the address for Marla. I'm sure she will enjoy any note/card she gets. Did you see the pic of her on FB yesterday that Her DD posted? And the lovely Tiger Lily that her DH got her. How sweet of him. She definitely has a keeper... hehehe
Glad that you got to sleep in for a change.

Good morning to all on this Psalm Sunday. We are suppose to get in the 70's again but also suppose to rain this afternoon. We ended up in the ER last night, Clenton was having severe pain in his back last night, they put a pain patch on him and he needs to see his doctor on Monday. I am suppose to take the stuff for communion today, but will call another lady to come and take it as there's no way I'll leave him alone today, he's still sleeping. I felt so bad for him last night. They did x-ray his lower back and guess there's not much space between his disc and the doc said maybe a nerve is being pinched.

Serenity Sunday is posted and thanks to Mauri for getting us started this morning. If you have a favorite verse(s), poem, quote, saying or whatever may be on your heart please join us there.

Wanda so glad Kismet is doing better. They say we may see a winter mix on Monday, at least if it does snow this time of year it doesn't hang around.

Mermaid Kathy, I did send a card off to Marla's home address the other day, thanks for checking into that. The young ones sure can wear you out, I am not around them as much either and it sure makes a difference, glad your trip was better this time, where would we be without our friends.

Looking forward to time with our family today.

Everyone have a blessed, serene Psalm Sunday!

Hugs,
Shirl

HI EVERYONE!!!! I don't know what happened to knock me off of receiving the team message board, but I'm baaaack. emoticon

Enjoy getting such wonderful support on my activity feeds--you know who you are!!

I read through the posts and hope things are returning to normal and/or moving in the right direction for everyone.

Special note to KSNICKER Kathy--glad your trip went better this time . Being around a four year old would be pretty intimidating to me as all my kids and grandkids are beyond that age now.

I have finished up art courses until June now and am looking forward to showing y'all stuff at the end of the month. Remember, my work is a bit 'off'.... talk more later!

Have a blessed Sunday everyone.
Priscilla

Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

Good Morning all,

Wow...I had a nice sleep in, woke up at my usual time and thought, nope I don't have to get up for work, rolled over and didn't wake up until almost 8am! I have my monthly massage this morning so best get myself in action here.

I wasn't impressed when I looked out the window this morning...IT'S SNOWING! I'm hoping that we don't get lots as we have to drive into the city this evening and sure don't want to be driving on bad roads.

Kismet is doing better each day. She is still not coming and cuddling on my lap or at night on the bed, but at least she lets me give her pets and scratches behind the ears now. I have to go and get some hamburger to cook up for her as she is not eating very well as yet. Doesn't like the soft canned food. I know she will eat cooked hamburger though, so must get some.

Shyra and the dog are coming over for the day as they are getting their carpets and furnace ducts all cleaned out today. No sense me doing my floors now when there are going to be puppy prints all over the place. Oh well, the floors aren't going anywhere so will be there for me tomorrow.

Shirl...sounds like you will have a busy weekend also. Enjoy your time with family and at the supper. Sounds like Clenton is slowly recovering, I hope he takes it easy though if he is still feeling dizzy. Take care of you too. Hugs.

Kathy...so glad that you had a great day with the little one. They can be exhausting, but so much fun. Yes, thank you for the picture and the address. I'm sorry, I thought I had let you know, but must have only been thinking about it *grin*. Lots of hugs.

Kathryn...hope all is well with you, miss you.


Priscilla, Lightening, Mauri and anyone else that pops in...hope your day is great.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good Morning Sparkies...

Happy Saturday to you all...

Shirl - Hope that you and Clenton are doing better. I understand being grumpy when they won't do what they are suppose to to take care of themselves... But then I just take some deep breaths and try to let it go. You can only lead a horse to water as they say. hehehe
Oh and Dana said to just mail cards letter etc to the home address and Kevin will take them up to her. He goes up and stays most days with her from what I hear. He's such a blessing for her. I can't imagine my DH sitting at the hospital with me all day. emoticon

Wanda - Glad that Kismet is warming up to you again. She was probably just so groggy she didn't understand what was going on. Poor baby. And Woo hoo for you getting some "ME" time for Easter. Nothing wrong with that... I love my "ME" time. hehehe
I actually have some today as DH is at one of the rentals today doing some repairs. So glad he has a helper for all the heavy stuff.
Oh did you get Marla's address I sent you and the pic's of my blooming flowers? hehehe

I did survive my trip with Marie's this time although Raelynn was there and so we took her with us. Thank goodness she is such a good little girl. I think Marie had a talk with her because she was extra good this time. She wasn't bad last time it was just a lotta work playing for 3 hours straight. hehehe I'm not used to being around 4 year old's anymore. hehehe

I broke my computer glasses last night so heading to Walmart this morning to get a new pair and I think I will order a new pair with better frames. This is the 3rd time I've broken these.

Have a wonderful day everyone... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning fellow sparkies, hope the sun shines for you today, it looks like it will here, we are suppose to see low 70's today and tomorrow, but rain in the afternoon tomorrow. Silly Saturday is posted and if you have a funny please come and share with us. Cleaning is on my agenda for today and will boil the eggs and make the deviled eggs and also the Watergate salad so it'll all be ready when I get home from church tomorrow. My miniature daffodils are blooming, such a pretty yellow. Yesterday GD and GGD stopped by for a visit, her DH was meeting her here when he got out of work so they could go look at appliances a person has for sale, they are buying a house here in town and need all the kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer.

Enjoy this day.

Hugs

Getting close to my bed time here, was a good day, we had coffee hour this morning, then I fixed lunch, after lunch went to Meijer's to get what I needed for Sunday for our family get together and the bread for communion for this Sunday, DH stayed home as his meds are making him even dizzier than usual. Hope all had a good Friday.

Wanda glad Kismet forgave you, they always do. Sounds like you have a pretty busy weekend ahead of you, enjoy.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

Well Kismet has finally forgiven me. I couldn't come within 5 feet of her yesterday when I got her home without her hissing at me. She is still pretty subdued and groggy this morning, but at least let me check on her and give her a petting.

We have a busy weekend ahead of us. Garry has to work the car show on Saturday, I have my monthly massage. Saturday evening we going out with the kids to see Mump and Smoot and then on Sunday we are celebrating Kyle's birthday with a dinner out. The Easter weekend I will have lots of me time as Garry is heading to his Mom's, Kaeli is heading to Quebec to meet her beau's family and I get to pet sit. I'm sure that I will be seeing Shy and Kyle at some point during that time. I'm actually looking forward to a weekend to myself.

Hope everyone has a great day,

Hugs,
Wanda

Just got home with Kismet...she is not a happy kitty. On the plus side, she should heal up well and maybe not be so cranky *grin*. Poor baby...they had to remove 4 teeth due to the nature of them. I'm hoping that was they reason for all the crankiness. I have to watch her carefully for the next 24 hours, but she seems to be doing pretty good. Still woozy, but that's to be expected.

I'm grateful for the vet's office and the care they have shown.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good afternoon all. Well we had more sun earlier, but clouds have moved in and it's pretty windy. Got Joyce to her appointment this morning and she won't have to go back unless she needs more adjustments on her dummy leg (that's what she calls it). I have a load of laundry going up on 2nd flr. I am a little grumpy from trying to get DH to do what he needs to do to get better and I know my stress level is up there right now, oh well, it'll get better as he gets better.

Wanda hope you were able to corner Kismet without to much trouble.

Hope all are having a good Thursday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

I had a poor day of getting my steps in yesterday, but then it was a busy day at work with getting orders in and I had a headache to boot. Feeling much better this morning and ready for a good day of getting steps in.

Shirl...I'm listening to Kismet ask me why she is not getting her breakfast this morning and she's not understanding that she is going to the vets! I am going in to work a wee bit later as I have to drop Kismet on my way and they don't open until 7:30am. It will be a long day for both of us. I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your relative. Living to 92 though is a nice long life. It's good that he was being kept comfortable and had his family with him. Safe travels today. Hugs.

Kathy...Safe travels for you too today. I'm sure that Marie appreciates you taking her to her appointments. Bless your heart for helping out. I'm trying hard to not sweat the small stuff and just go with the flow. Those garden beds will get moved and will get planted, just maybe not this year *grin* Saturday evening we are going out with Kaeli and her beau to see a performance of Mump and Smoot. We have seen them a couple of times and greatly enjoyed them. Easter weekend, Kaeli will be going to Quebec to meet Sylvain's family and Garry is going to his mom's. I'm on pet patrol so will be staying home. SOME ME TIME!
Have a great day today.

Off to corral Kismet in a towel so that I can get her into her travel cage for her trip to the vets. Oh joy!


Hugs,
Wanda

Good afternoon. It's a very nice day, have rain coming in tomorrow afternoon, so again hoping it holds off till I get Joyce back home, her appointment tomorrow is for 11 a.m. My niece's dad passed away on Monday, he'll be cremated in FL and then his ashes will be brought to MI and there'll be a service at a later date. I am glad he wasn't in a lot of pain, he was at hospice and they kept him comfortable and his kids were all with him when he passed, he was 92. This week is not going anything like I had hoped, but oh well that's life and that's why it's good to be adaptable. I am not going to be tracking this week, will get back to it next week.

Kathy does Marla have an address where she is at right now or would it be better to just sent to her home address, which I do have? Hope you don't get so worn out taking Marie this time.

Wanda hope things work out with having to move the planters.

Wishing all a good Wed.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning Sparkies...

Shirl - I'm so glad that Clenton didn't break anything. But getting them muscles to calm down will take a little time. They can be stubborn. You would make a great nurse because you gave him the right med's to help.
Hope you both got a good nights sleep last night.

Wanda - Sounds like moving them planters will be a big job. Good luck with them and you are right if you can't get them all moved this year there is always next. No sweating the small stuff.
You are so right about looking out my window and seeing those flowers. They are beautiful. So I am enjoying them every day as I know they won't last forever... hehehe
I'll go look up Marla's address now and send it to you.

Not much on my agenda today. After my shower I will get to doing some laundry.
Tomorrow is another big day as I have to take Marie to Orlando again. I've been taking lots of down days to relax as that last time wore me out. hehehe

Have a wonderful day everyone...

Good Morning all,

Shirl...sure glad to hear that Clenton didn't do any major damage. Keeping him my prayers for complete healing. Hope you were able to both get some sleep last night. Lots of hugs.

Kathy...I would love to be looking out my window on some beautiful blooming flowers. What an uplifting sight you must have. Moving our planters is going to be a big job, but it has to be done as nothing will grow in them any more due to the roots from the poplar trees pushing their way into where there is moisture. It might be a case of just cutting back on the planting for this year and going to the farmers market...will have to see how much and how soon we can get it done. Would you send me Marla's address please. Have a great day.
Hugs,


Mauri...hows the house hunting coming along? Thinking of you and hoping you are making some headway.

Things at work are a bit stressful right now. We have lots of adjustments to make and hopefully will be successful at them. I'm off to the see what develops today.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good evening. It's been a very long day, we got to the VA at 10 this morning and got back home at 4:30 this afternoon. Last night after supper DH fell in our hallway, he was having terrible back spasms, but would not go to the ER, ended up giving him a pain pill and a muscle relaxer and put him to bed with the heating pad. His x-rays were ok, nothing broken, so now he's on pain pills and muscle relaxers for a while. Hope his spasms are better by Sunday. I got very little sleep last night as I kept getting up and checking on him, so hope we both have a good nights sleep tonight.

Hope everyone had a good Tuesday!

hugs,
Shirl

Afternoon Sparkies...

We have had rain off and on since last night. Sure helps them plants and flowers bloom nicely. My Pink & white Amaryllis are in full bloom. I think there are 5 bulbs in this one BIG pot and they each have at least 4 blooms each. What a sight to see when I look out my kitchen window.
Today was the day to clean off my desk by paying some bills. Some I will mail and the rest I paid online. Sure makes life easier doing it that way.

Wanda - Is it going to be a big job moving them planters? If so I sure hope Garry has some help.
I am also happy that they are keeping Marla so that she can get well enough for that heart surgery... She needs our prayers... I also sent her off a little Easter Card with her favorite flowers on it. ( African violet) At least she will know I'm thinking of her.

Shirl - How is Clenton feeling today? Did you take him to the VA hospital today to have him checked? Sure hope it's just muscles and nothing worse. Keeping him in my prayers too.

Hope that everyone else is doing well... Have a great day.

Good Morning all,

We were supposed to get some rain overnight, but that doesn't look like it happened, maybe during the day today. We could use a good rain to get rid of all the dirt and mess from winter. Most of the snow is gone now except for the shady areas. It's pretty mucky outside as the ground is not absorbing much as yet. Ahhh spring!

Kathy...thank you for always keeping us up to date with Marla. I'm so pleased that they are keeping her where she is being monitored and giving her the time to get better. May is not that far off for her surgery. It's hard to believe that we are already into the second week of April! Have a great day today. Hugs.

Shirl...I have heard of the Heritage tomatoes. In fact last year a co-worker shared some plants with me, but they were called chocolate tomatoes and also some cherry size ones. Very tasty. I'm hoping to get some heritage plants this year to try. So much better. We have to move two of the garden beds yet this spring and then I should be good to go once again. I'm watching to see if I get any buds on my pear and apple trees. I need to go to the greenhouse and get some ideas on how to keep the bugs off of them without using chemicals. I'm looking forward to being able to do my gardening again. Good for you for helping out Joyce. I'm sure she really appreciates it. What a blessing you are to those around you. Have a great day, Hugs,


I'm on the go this morning. I had another big shipment arrive yesterday which needs to be unpacked and received today. Things are starting to get a bit busier again. Yay!

Hugs,
Wanda

Hey Sparkies...

Wyndy I had to giggle when you said he said she said house... That is us too. Or I should say he never agrees with me and well he's almost always wrong. Bahahaha emoticon
Hope your hubby is feeling better.

Shirl - Yes it's very nice of you to help your friend. And those tomatoes sound so good. Not sure what DH has that he is planting this year. Guess we'll see. hehehe

Wanda - Nice that you had a nice weekend with the kids. And that they made you dinner. You are so blessed with your family my friend.
Shirl you are too... We were just discussing how we never hear from ours unless they need $$. emoticon emoticon

I just sent you you both an update on Marla... She is basically resting and getting ready for her heart surgery in May they are thinking now.

Kathryn - I'm with the other ladies and have not worn heels in so long. After my back went bad 20+ years ago just could not do it. hehehe So you enjoy them as your hubby will too. hehehe

Not much happening here with me. Today I went and to the bank to make deposits and then to fill up my car. Then tried a new nail place and got a pedicure. Unfortunately it is not a good as where I went last time. Went away very unhappy so will not be going back there. I feel like a child painted my nails. There is polish on my toes that I will try to get off tomorrow. If I can reach it. hehehe But the good news is It is a very pretty color purple... hehehe

Have a good day/evening...

Good afternoon all. It's a gray, cloudy day, suppose to get rain later today, at least it didn't rain while Joyce and I were gone, she has to go back Thursday, they needed to order her a new sleeve that fits inside her prosthetic, it takes about 5 yrs. for the leg to get shrunk down all the way and she's almost there. We stopped for some Wendy's chili on our way back home. Our resident meeting is at 2 today. so won't get anything done around here today, but that's ok, helping a friend is more important.

Wanda have you ever heard of Heritage tomatoes? DD was talking to me about them on Sunday, the seeds are original and are not genetically altered and produce big, beefy, tasty tomatoes, she figures it's too late to start from seeds so is going to check at our local greenhouse to see if they have any of the plants.

Wyndy hope DH gets to feeling better. You sound like you are doing much better.

Everyone have a marvelous Monday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good morning everyone,

A new week and new day...love these fresh starts! I actually surprised myself this morning when I stepped on the scale. I had not been as diligent over the weekend as I could have been with my eating, but I managed to eliminate a pound regardless. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We had a great relaxing weekend. The kids were over and we had some great family time. Kaeli and Sylvain cooked us dinner last night and that was such a lovely treat. The weather was much nicer. Still on the cool side, but if you were sitting in the sunshine, it was pretty nice.

Wyndy...Hope your hubby is feeling better soon. How's the dog bite responding this time to the meds? Has spring managed to make it's way to you yet? We have almost no snow left, at least in the areas that get some of the sunshine *grin*. I'm thinking it just might be possible to get my garden in by the end of next month after all. We have to move the garden beds yet to get them out of the path of those crazy poplar tree roots on the other side of our fence. That is going to be a big chore. It's on our to do list for our holiday time at the end of this month. Enjoy your day and good luck with getting everything taken to the account today.

Shirl, Priscilla, Lightening, Mauri, Kathryn, Mermaid Kathy and whomever else pops in today, hope you all had a great weekend and sending you warm thoughts for today.

Hugs,
Wanda

Had a lay around Friday and Saturday. Ted has been ill, he had some things removed from his back and I think the nerves were hurt and caused him to have nausea. They always do for me so I told him that was what it was and to take it easy. He doesn't think it would cause nausea. Chuckle we go through this all the time, this is definitely a he said she said house.

Today I worked on my business accounts and shall take them all in to the accountant in the morning as soon as I check on the mileage for the car. The sun has been shining on the south deck so Dollar has to go out the basement door to the north side to do his business in the snow. He is not happy but I don't want to clean up any mud yet. Mean old mommy. He doesn't like climbing up the steps to the livingroom. Him is LAZY.

God bless your endeavours

Good Morning everyone

I didn't get a chance to get back on yesterday. Ended up tackling lots of items on my to do list. I got my closet all emptied out and put back together with only the items that I am actually wearing. I have two big bags to donate. Cleaned out a couple of other closets also, got the laundry all done, helped Garry with some tasks and then went out for a girls early supper with Shyra, then back to the house to enjoy a visit with Kyle, doggie, Garry and Shyra. Such a nice Saturday.

Garry and I have been planning what we want to do on our time off at the end of the month. Money is a little tight, so we have decided to revise our plans and although we will be going places, we will be making more "day trips" to allow for savings on hotels costs. We are going to go and pick up Garry's Mom and take her to Canora, Sask. with us to visit with an elderly aunt that Garry is feeling the need to see. We will also go away somewhere for our actually anniversary. Other than that we are going to play tourists in our own area. I'm okay with that as just having some relaxing time will be great. We have a big reunion to attend in August as well as the Kismet's vet surgery coming up to pay for, so cutting costs elsewhere works for me.

Shirl...glad to hear that your stamp'n'up party was so great. Thanks for the info on where you are in relationship to Lansing...helps me get a better idea of things. We are about a 5 minute drive outside of Edmonton. You can actually see the city skyscape from Sherwood Park. We seldom go into the city unless there is something specific we are looking for. Most things are offered right here so no real need. Have a great day today.

Kathryn...woo hoo on the sexy high heels. I haven't worn heels is forever. But then again, I don't really go anywhere were I have to dress up *grin*. Yay on the income tax arriving and you being able to do some stocking up. I got our tax returns sent in last weekend, so hoping to get some returns back by the end of the month. Have a lovely day being able to wear shorts!

Good morning to any one else that pops in and hope that you are having a great day.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good morning Kathryn and all who stop by today. We have sun and blue sky and it's suppose to be in the mid 50's today. Serenity Sunday is posted, please join us there to just read or if you have a favorite verse(s), poem, quote, saying or whatever may be on your heart. Will be leaving for church in a little while. After a food day yesterday need to get it back on track today. Margaret and I will be walking outside this afternoon. Tomorrow morning I am taking Joyce to her appointment in Lansing and our resident meeting is at 2 in the afternoon, so will be a busy Monday.

Kathryn your lucky you can wear heels, I haven't been able to wear them for years because of the arthritis. Good quote this morning.

Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Tax return money came have been so busy stocking up on canned goods from Wal Mart and the 99 cent store. Also went to the Goodwill to get got some smaller size shorts to wear this spring. Am wearing a pair today as it will get up in to the 80's. Going shopping with the girls to day to the outlet stores, hoping to buy some nice new tennis shoes. I bought high heels the other day at the Goodwill, you should have seen me prancing around in them looking so sexy. Hubby loved it.

Good evening. Wanda thanks so much for posting silly Saturday for me. The stack'n stamp started at 10 a.m. and we were done by 3:30 p.m., made 10 really neat variety cards. I am not doing much on here this evening, need to get logged in. Hope everyone had a great Sat.

Good Morning all,

Shirl...I've got us started on Silly Saturday...hope you have a great day with the stack'n up party tonight. Should be lots of fun. Making cards is always a great time.

I'll pop back in a bit as Garry wants to go out right now and I still have to have a shower.

Good afternoon all. It's another wet day, but not as cold, it's suppose to get quite windy later and we may have some thunderstorms come rumbling through. That's ok it'll help settle the ground and the rain is helping the grass start to green up. They are saying maybe, just maybe 60 on Sunday, a veritable heat wave. I got under the sink in the bathroom done yesterday, now I think the next clean out project will be the closet by our apartment entrance door, but that will have to wait till next week as I'll be busy all day tomorrow with the stack'n stamp.

Wanda hope BIL came through his surgery ok and that he'll have a good recovery. Lansing is about 20 miles east of us, DD's drive to work will be a little less than what she is driving to school right now, SIL's drive will be to Battle Creek and as his old job is right here in Charlotte he'll be driving further, probably about 20-25 miles, but they are both good jobs and will be worth the extra miles.

Mermaid thanks for always keeping us updated on Marla, will be praying hard that the infection will leave her body and that she'll be able to get the strength back that she needs to have the next surgery done. She is a strong lady. Enjoy that steak dinner and your BIL's birthday, hope it's a happy one.

Wyndy good for you for heading back on track. Hope the pain in your jaw gets better real soon.

Everyone have a fab Friday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Oh joy, it is suppose to be just above zero this weekend. How wonderful is that!

My jaw hurts as I had to have a molar dug out yesterday plus a hepatitis shot. Fortunately they were both at the hospital in the next town so one trip and 2 jobs done. I have put on a couple of pounds since my dog bite. I know, I was wallowing in pain and disappointment and frustration. Time to get back on the health wagon.

Good morning Sparkies...

Wanda - Hope all went well for your BIL. I'm sure Garry call and report in with good news as soon as he can. Prayers for BIL that all went well with the surgery and that he heals well.
As for Marla... I don't always see the FB messages from Dana... So I'm glad she post to Spark on the other team.
Hope that your winter finally leaves soon so that you have time to plant and actually harvest something before winter hits again. hehehe I think you need to move forward with your green house soon. hehehe

Shirl - How are you doing today?

I'm doing ok this morning... Just the normal back pain. So hoping it feels better in a while. Today is BIL's Birthday today and we have plans to go out to dinner at the steak place... so dinner will be good. hehehe

I'll try to check back later... Have a great day everyone...

Good Morning everyone,

IT"S FRIDAY! I love my Friday's, it both an beginning and an end. The beginning of a couple of days off from my place of work and the end of a week of going out to work. *grin*.

Kathy...Yay on getting help with some spring cleaning. I need to get cracking on doing some of mine. It's hard to get into the mode with spring not really being here yet. I know that if I don't start tackling it though, spring will have come and gone too quickly. It will be time to get out into the garden and do my planting. Thank you for the update on Marla. I've been just reading what is on FB and what Dana posts. I appreciate knowing so I know how to pray for her. She is one tough lady. Such an example of never giving up. Hope you have recovered from your "playtime" with a 4 year old *grin*. Have a great day today. Hugs.

Shirl...Is Lansing far from where you live? I know you talk about going to Lansing at times and just trying to get a picture in my mind of where you are exactly. Your food for Saturday evening sounds like a great serving. You will I'm sure, have a great time with making some cards. It's great that you can still get together to do that. Sounds like your weather is still a bit on the nippy side, we are sitting at minus 3 this morning, so definitely warming up. I'm so looking forward to walking again outside. I'm so thrilled for your DD and SIL and their new jobs. I hope they are all that they have been wishing for. So many changes happening in people's lives of late. Good Changes though. We didn't hear from anyone last night about our BIL and his surgery. Garry will call today to see how things went, but assuming things must have gone well or we would have heard. Have a great day today,
Hugs


Mauri, Priscilla, Lightening, Kathryn, and anyone else that pops in, hope you are all having a great day too.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hey Sparkies...

Update on Marla is they have postponed her surgery and are moving her to the extended care facility today I think... And she will continue to get antibiotics for the infection she has and once that is cleared up they will do the surgery. Last night she sat up and even walked a short distance. She needs to gain lots of strength before the surgery.
Dana has not posted today so I will email her message if she does.

Shirl - Your Saturday meal sounds good to me. What time will those sandwiches be ready? hehehe Enjoy your time visiting with everyone. How many will be there eating? Oh last night I made DH a dutch apple pie with pecans and a drizzle of caramel on top. It's sooooo good. hehehe

Wanda - I feel so bad for all of you. Your weather has to change soon. I think our spring is already leaving us... All week it's been in the higher 80's and today it's already 87* here then they say 90 * on Sunday... I'm so gonna miss the 70's. hehehe

Today DH's DD came by to earn a few $$ so had her clean all the ceiling fans in the house well 7 of 8 of them. hehehe So that chore is done again for a while. So thankful she will do them. They are all so high up and I'd sure fall off the ladder. hehehe

Well better get back to my laundry. On the last load for today...

Have a great day everyone...

Good afternoon to all. It's a cold, wet one today, temp is hovering around 32, but so far we've just got rain, not the freezing stuff, north of us was suppose to get that, probably my poor sis did. We went to the store this morning and I got the food I am having for Sat. decided on ham sandwiches on rolls with tomato slices, lettuce, cheese slices, potato chips/dip, cookies, coffee and a sugar free drink, and some of the other ladies will also bring some food, we always seem to have plenty. Got the shelves for under the bathroom sink so will be able to do that project this afternoon.

Wanda poor Kismet hope this is the last time they have to postpone her visit to the vet. Praying for your BIL's surgery hope all turns out well. Haven't seen anything on whether Marla has had hers yet or not, will also keep her in prayer. DD starts her new job April 14, she is nervous and excited at the same time. SIL starts May 14, but he doesn't know yet what shift he'll be on, lots of changes going on for them, but all good.

Mermaid I like those little out of the way places, glad you enjoyed your breakfast. Four yr. olds can wear you out, you brave lady. You are such a good friend to Marie. I liked the way Wanda pictured you in your pool too.

Indiana Kathy, Mauri, Wnydy, Priscilla, Lightening, Kathryn and all others hope you enjoy your Thursday.

Good Morning everyone.

Poor Kismet, once again her surgery has been postponed to next week. I'm hoping that it gets done then as she is not eating...don't know if it's due to the broken tooth or if there is something else wrong. She up-chucked twice yesterday. I've given her a small bowl of kefir milk to see if that won't help her. Poor kitty.

Mermaid Kathy...that would have been an exhausting day minding a 4 year old, especially when you are not used to it. They are so full of creativity and energy. Good for you for being such a great friend. I love when you discover those out of the way places to eat and they turn out so well. Sounds like you had a great time. Winter is considering leaving, but the warm temps that we were supposed to be getting keep getting delayed! Not sure if the forecasters are just fooling with us or what *grin*. I just keep hoping that I'm going to be able to get out doors soon and do some walking. Have a great day my friend.

Shirl...woo hoo on having your rent reduced. That is so awesome. It sounds like the exercises classes that you are having at the residence are going well. Are you still getting as many people attending? When does your DD start her new job? So thrilled for both your SIL and DD with getting the jobs. What an answer to prayer. Have a great day.

Wyndy...I think that the forecasters are just messing with us when they say we are going to have nice above zero temps. So far the temps haven't gotten there. Hope that your snow is gradually leaving and that you are able to get out and about with your avon deliveries. Have a great day too.


Time to get moving here, I will stop in again after work.
Hugs,
Wanda

Hey Sparkies...

Glad that everyone fared well with the pranks yesterday. I'm not so sure I did... it wasn't really a prank but a very tiring day for sure. hehehe Took my friend Maire to her surgery consult. It ended up being a 3 hour appt and she did not have a babysitter for the 4 year old she watches for her niece. So I had the honor of "playing" for 3 hours and making trips to the bathroom for her. hehehe I was sooooo tired by the time I got home 5 hours later, I just sat down and almost cried. hehehe Can't believe how difficult the little things are anymore. hehehe
But on the positive side... I "survived" playing Olympics with Raelynn over and over as she had to win All the trophy's... Her idea... She has such a creative mind. hehehe I think she may do well in the balance beam and all of that. hehehe We'll see! hehehe

This morning my BIL came in and asked us to breakfast. So we took off for this restaurant and he actually got us lost 3 times... hehehe So 20 miles later we sat down at this little hole in the wall place that was DELICIOUS! They had the beat Grits I've ever eaten. They were so good & creamy I had to ask what he put in them and I'm gonna try to make them. I love grits just never could make them that good. hehehe So it was worth all the wrong turns just for the grits. hehehe They also have all kinds of "old" things like pictures and a old tricycle from the 50's and just every where you looked there was a reminder from the old days. hehehe

Wanda - Sorry that your winter does not want to go away. Not fair. And I have not made it to the side of the pool yet. But You'll be one of the First I SPLASH when I do. hehehe Love how picture me lying there though. Hope I've eliminated all this weight in your vision too. hehehe

Shirl - I'm so happy for you that your rent was adjusted down. Woo Hoo! Now if your weather would just warm up a tad more... but it's getting there.

We actually hit a high today of 85*... It was hot out there. So won't be long until our Summer hits. About that time you all get Spring. hehehe

Wyndy - hoe are you doing now with that dog bite? Hope it's healing up for you.

Kathryn - How you doing? Hope things are balancing out for you... ((hugs))

Hope that everyone is doing well and starting to see a little spring or warm up...

Good Morning everyone,

There were some great April Fool's day jokes going around yesterday, but I must say that the one that seemed to get the most people reacting was the one stating that Rob Ford was resigning as mayor of Toronto and running for Premier of Alberta! Everyone's worst nightmare for sure. Great timing on that part, as our Premier resigned and a new one is needed.

Shirl...it's been on the cold side of things here, but at least we have not been receiving much for snow. We are supposed to warm up by the weekend, but I'm thinking that is just a joke to keep us hopeful that spring is coming *grin*.
Wishing you much fortune with your rent...it would be wonderful to have it go down, but at the least stay the same. Hugs.

I almost had to be woken up by my alarm this morning. The past couple of nights I have really been sleeping and waking up later than I usually do. Not a bad thing, but certainly different for me.

Hope you all will join me in the April Challenges. Choose something different each day and see how well you do.

Have a wonderful day everyone,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good afternoon to all. The sun keeps peaking in and out of the clouds, it's on the windy side and will be in the high 40's to low 50's. Happy first day of April and April Fool's Day. We went to McDonalds for breakfast this morning and then headed out to Wal-mart for some groceries, I have no idea what I am fixing for the stack'n stamp this Sat. so will have to make another trip to the store. Kristy from the office called and our rent renewal papers are ready to sign and we'll find out if our rent stayed the same, went up or down. Got some cleaning done in the kitchen before lunch, but have much more to do.

Mermaid hope your back gets to feeling better.

Wyndy hope this round of medicine takes care of things and you get to feeling better.

Kathryn glad to see you posting the quotes again, you sure do find some good ones.

Lightening did you get a walk in today?

Hope all are having a terrific Tuesday.

Hugs,

Good Morning all,

Happy April Fool's day to everyone, hope that you don't get caught in too many jokes

Mermaid Kathy...hope that your back is doing better today. Wow, nice weather in your neck of the woods. I'm so jealous of your swimming pool *grin*. I can just see you lounging at the edge, your long hair floating all around you and flipping you fins. Lol.

Wyndy...hope this round of antibiotics clears up the dog bite. Have you ever thought about using kefir to help your immunity system?

Lightening...you are doing super, keep up the great work.

Kathryn...you always manage to find such great quotes...thank you.

Shirl...Happy April Fool's day to you.


I'm off to deal with Mother Nature's April Fool's joke...more snow!

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good morning to all you Positive Sparkies...

Happy Monday to one and all...

Not much happening today. My back is giving me a little trouble. Must of over done it on the laundry and all that I did yesterday.
The kids came for a visit. DH Step son Chopper and his wife Penny... He needed to use some of DH's tools to change his tire and put a part on the car. And DH's DD came over to help him with some gardening... The weather is absolutely wonderful out there... they say we will go up to 88 later this week... So see our spring don't last long. hehehe Hoping that it's just for a couple days and then cools off again. So hoping everyone else gets some of this warmth...

Shirl - What a bummer that you had that headache and had to miss out on cake. hehehe Hope it's better today. You have had your share of them headaches lately. Great news about your DD and her DH getting them jobs. Congrats to them both and hope all goes well for them.

Lightening... Where do you live? Someplace warm where you can swim already or did you go to an indoor heated pool? That is great exercise! WTG on your elimination...

Kathryn - Same to you WTG on your loss too... Love the quote too... Sounds like me. hehehe

Wanda - Hope all goes well for your BIL's surgery. That is a big surgery. Prayers for him and his family... Have a good day yourself my friend... And I will keep you and Shirl updated as I hear on Marla... She needs lots of our prayers. As will your BIL...

Wyndy - Wow you have lots going on with that dog bite. No fun. Hope it's healing well. They take a long time to heal. I got bite once too breaking up a fight between my Yorkie and a BIG dog. Good luck with it...

Priscilla - How are things with you? I'm way behind on the post as usual... Hey it's a Mermaid thing. hehehe

Speaking of Mermaid and S*P*L*A*S*H*I*N*G... hehehe DH put a new liner in our above the ground pool and has it up and running... As soon as it warms up I will be splashing away...

Hope all you Snow people see grass and decks soon.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Tomorrow is another busy day for me. I take my friend Marie for a consult on getting a port put in for the IV med's she has to have all the time. That way they won't have to find a vein all the time. poor thing feels like a pin cushion. hehehe Anyway It will be a big drive for me so wish me luck.

I haven't been exercising as the dog bite still hasn't healed. I am back on antibiotics and anti-inflammatory. I am at a stand still for losing weight which is quite understandable without the exercise and not watching what I am eating except for IBS triggers. Hopefully this week will show a big jump up in how I feel and I can stop coasting and start losing. The new USB thingy for my tracker arrived and it was all squished by the post office so it wouldn't fit in my computer. Sigh, now I guess it'll take another 4 weeks for another one. That darn customs must be backed up with parcels. It's the end of March and although there isn't any storm it's darn cold out with the wind -27C. Can't decide if that's the lion or the lamb and I guess when it's the end of the month it really doesn't matter does it.

God bless your endeavours

Good morning, or afternoon , or evening, when ever you read this. For me it is really early in the morning 5:15. I have been up an hour. One thing about this bipolar thing is after having a down swing I have an up swing where I get up early in the morning. Reading a new book "Diet Fix" by Yoni Freedhoff. MD. It reinforces the things I have done to lose weight and reading it gives me the boast to get back on track. I love going to the library and getting new books from the recently new section. I am going to be doing volunteer work again at the end of next month. They are going to have me come in when the AC is on so I won't be getting over heated and dizzy from the AC not being on during hot days.

Good Morning everyone,

I realized when I logged on this morning that I hadn't stopped by the chit chat lounge yesterday at all! I had good intentions but got side tracked.

Shirl...Sorry that you are having such a bad time with the headaches lately. This weather has been all over the place. Congratulations to your DD on getting the job. How exciting for her and for your SIL on getting his new job also. I'm sure that it is a huge relief to all of you to know that things are moving forward. If you have any ideas of April's challenge feel free to post, I just realized that tomorrow is April already and I won't have chance to do anything until I get home from work tonight. Hope today is a wonderful day for you. Hugs.

Lightening...way to go on getting those nice walks in. You should be able to get some great ideas for back strengthening exercises off of Spark people. You are right though, start off with easy gentle ones until you build up the strength. Have a great day.

Kathryn...woo hoo on the weight elimination. You ROCK!

Mermaid Kathy...thank you for keeping us updated on Marla. So glad that she is getting the care that she needs. Keeping her and her family in my prayers. My BIL under goes his triple by-pass on April 3rd.

Priscilla... I apologize...I forgot to get the names of those books...I have put it on my to do list for today.

Have a great Monday everyone,
Hugs,
Wanda

Great quote, and even better on going down 2 pounds!!
I was able to go for 2 walks today. Early morning for an hour with my grandson, and this afternoon for half an hour. I'm finding the walking is getting a lot easier.
I need to set up some strength training, but I do have to be careful as I have issues with my back. A little bit at a time, and I should be okay. If anyone has any suggestions of low impact for the back, I would really appreciate learning about them.
Wishing everyone a fantastic day!

Good morning Lightening and all others who stop by today. Well it's a cold start to the day, but the sun is shining and we are suppose to see 50 this afternoon. Yesterday it was a mistake going to get that refill, it was very damp and cold and by the time we got back home I had another of those weather related headaches, so me and the heating pad spent the day in bed, missed the birthday celebration. I am going to church this morning, we are having a hot dog bar after and I signed up to bring the chopped onions, got them all chopped up last evening, DH will be on his own for lunch today.

DD did get a call after her testing, this Thursday, after she got out of school she had to go get finger printed and when the HR department get that information they'll be calling her to come in and get all the paperwork done, she is so excited. SIL's start date for his new job is May 12. Prayers being abundantly answered.

Mermaid I had a Raspberry Truffle coffee and it was marvelous, I don't buy fancy coffees very often, but when I do I sure enjoy it. Thanks for the update on Marla, I am so glad she'll be getting that surgery done soon.

Wanda let's hope we both warm up some in April.

Enjoy this last Sunday of March. I am looking forward to April and warmer temps.

Hugs,
Shirl

I had a fantastic day yesterday, wore myself out. We took our grandson and his friends to the water park, and I got in a good long swim!! After that, I managed to get a walk in, and today I walked again.
We're heading into the hot season here, by mid afternoon, it's in the 90s, so I either have to go walking early, or wait till after dinner.

Wanda - Love that color of your shovel. Wondering now...Hmmmm I know that that snow gets very deep. Have you ever gotten lost while shoveling? hehehe Picturing Garry slinging it towards you by accident and buries you. hehehe I'm being a naughty Mermaid aren't I? Oh wait Maybe You slung that snow toward him? Now that sounds more like it... hehehe Mermaid Swimming away fast... emoticon emoticon

Shirl - Yum enjoy that cake today... I Love kid birthday parties. Oh and that coffee you had sounds good too. What kind is it that you get?

Kathryn - My DH's Daughter is Bipolar. And I get very depressed at times too... Been depressed for a very long time. But I tell ya... coming here really helps with all the positivity here. Helps to chase them blues away. Glad that you keep coming... now I wish I could take my own advice. hehehe
Hope you feel better real soon... ((hugs))

Wyndy - You sound like you are having a good day. Hope it stays that way. hehehe

We are getting lots of lightening and thunder today. This rain today will help everything spring to life. I noticed that the trees were all turning green again yesterday. So we have Spring... Oh and my Amaryllis have two blooms on it as of today... so pretty.

Good Morning all,

It's grey skies and gloomy looking out there right now...but that could be just that it's still early morning and the day hasn't really started yet *grin*.

I am tackling the taxes today. I am starting on them right away so that I at least have some uninterrupted time to get the bulk of them done. Mine are easy to do, it's Garry's that always give me a challenge. If I can get them all done today, then I can forget about them for another year.

We are going to head into the city today to pick up the storm door. Garry got really busy yesterday at work so we had to postpone going in. We are supposed to get some snow again today, but by next week the temps are all supposed to be on the plus side of zero and sunshine. Maybe spring is just delayed!

Wyndy...happy to see that you are doing much better. Glad you popped in, thought maybe you had frozen in a snowbank or something *grin*. Have a great day.

Shirl...enjoy the birthday celebration. Did your DD hear about the job yet?

Hope everyone has a great day. Priscilla...I haven't forgotten about the book titles yet, I will search them out today.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good morning all. Ours is starting out with gray sky and looks like we might be getting some rain. Silly Saturday is posted, this is the last one for March. We are almost into April and warmer weather, I hope, though I have seen snowstorms in April here in MI. Going to run out to Walmart to get a prescription refilled and then back home to get going on the cleaning. This evening will probably go out to GD's for cake and ice cream for her step daughter's birthday. Hope all have a super, silly Saturday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good evening all, I really don't know where this day went, it was a busy one. We made it up to 41 today, now their talking high 50's maybe 60 on Monday. Had our exercise class this morning, then we went to the store, then fixed lunch, then time to meet Margaret for our walk. After our walk we went downtown to Evenly Bay's for a yummy frothy coffee, then I came home and got started on super, did dishes and finally able to get on here. I need to track my exercise, food and water now. Tomorrow plan on cleaning the apartment, had a message on phone from GD with an invite to come out tomorrow evening for cake and ice cream for her step daughter's birthday, I think she's turning 12.

Wyndy glad you were feeling good today, we like to hear that.

Wanda we might get some rain/snow mix tonight but are suppose to be in the 40's tomorrow with some sun.

Hope all had a fab Friday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning everyone,

YAY, no snow to shovel this morning...it's too cold to snow! Temperature is minus 15 this morning. We are supposed to see spring like weather next week though. We will likely see another dump of snow yet before winter is finally over. It always manages to snow in the month of May.

Kathryn...hang in there my friend. Being bi-polar is not a fun thing, thankfully you recognize what is happening and are seeking the treatment necessary to keep on an even keel. Just know that we are all here for you and supporting you. You are an amazingly strong woman and you will get through this valley. Hugs.

Priscilla...ouch on the hips! I am not able to take meds without having some sort of reaction, so do know that there are lots of ways to treat things naturally. Cinnamon is a great anti-inflammatory. I also use kefir to help to keep my immune system working at top notch. I have a couple of great reference books that I will share titles with you...I will have to get them too you after work today. I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures. Have a great Friday.

Lightening...don't feel guilty about your lovely temperatures...just share that sunshine and warm weather *grin*. It's minus 15 here this morning...on the plus side...it's not snowing!
Have a great day.

Shirl...I've been complaining to old man winter, but he's just being stubborn and won't listen. I've told him that do appreciate though that we haven't been getting the winter blizzards that eastern Canada has been getting, maybe that will help *grin*. Glad that you and Margaret were able to do your walking indoors. I'm looking forward to the sidewalks being clear once again so that I can walk outside. I'm off to pick up my new storm door after work today and hopefully we will be able to get it installed soon. Garry is thinking that we should replace the front door also, so that might delay the installation of the storm door. Kismet's vet appt. has been postponed until next week as a piece of the machinery they use is broken and needs repair. Poor cat. Have a great Friday. Hugs.

Mermaid Kathy...my shovel is a lovely flourescent orange...just in case I get lost in all this snow *grin* Thanks for the update on Marla...keeping her in my prayers. My, she has been through so much. Have a great Friday. Hugs.

Mauri....keep warm and safe too. I keep thinking of you as I watch the weather forecasts and hope that you are safe. I know how you hate driving in these conditions. Hugs.


Have a wonderful Friday, see you all later.
Hugs,
Wanda

Thanks for all the welcomes!!
I almost feel guilty when I read about all the snow and cold weather. Today we had sun and it reached 90. (I did say almost feel guilty!) I was able to get out for two short walks today, and for me, that's one more than usual.
Kathryn, I really hope that you are feeling better soon. Sending positive vibes your way.
Wishing everyone a wonderful day!

LIGHTNING: You picked a great team! emoticon

To Shirl--thanks for the invite! I'm pushing warm weather your way as hard as I can. We are supposed to hit high 80's this afternoon. Not ready for that!

Kathryn. We love you and are still by your side. We'd even help carry your bed to the therapist if we could! Nothing like snuggling up under the covers--positive spin on not wanting to get out of bed, right?? May this swing of your polarity be a short one and that you stay in your upper-middle range! emoticon emoticon

Mermaid Kathy: Hi, and have a good Thursday. You deserve it! Marie is lucky to have you.
Talking about your day ahead, I'm enjoying my latest 'touch-up' (ahem) and this afternoon I get to go to the dentist! Lucky me!--Really, it's just a regular checkup; no big deal.

Wanda: I'd be out there shoveling with you if my Dr. hadn't told me I have to rest my hips for a couple of days--found out this a.m. that I have every kind of "itis" that a couple of hips can have! He prescribed some stuff for me that I'm trying out. One is a narcotic which I think I'll pass on--Hydrocodone? "no thanks".

To you all, my friends, I will try to post pics on my SparkPage before the end of April.
Have a fantastic rest of your day.


Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

Good morning all. It's a wet one here, suppose to rain most of the day and to be up in the low 40's, today starts are gradual warm up to maybe 50 by Sunday, I'll take it :) Margaret and I will be doing our inside walk again today at 2.

Kathryn maybe seeing your therapist will help you head back to the positive. We have a few bi-polar people in our building, and they have their good days but also some bad days. Hope you get feeling better. Thanks for the quote, you always seem to find the good ones.

Mermaid Kathy, hopefully Marie will be feeling better by her appointment day.Our weather is slowly getting better.

Wanda you need to find Old Man Winter and give him a good kick in his kester and tell him to be on his way, enough is enough. Glad your tests were all good.

Lighting welcome to the team, glad to have you join us.

Wishing all a wonderful Thursday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Good morning everyone,

Well, I'll be out shoveling snow again this morning...I'm so done with winter...unfortunately it doesn't seem to be done with us! On the plus side...I'm burning calories and getting some steps in! Always a bright side to things *grin*.

Shirl...you had a full day yesterday! So glad that the exercise classes are continuing. So nice and convenient to have them come to your place. Are you and Margaret getting to walk outdoors or are you using the indoor walking track still? Ladies night out and having Mexican food sounded so much fun. I love Mexican food. Have a great day today. Hugs.

Priscilla...you made me laugh when I read about you having the towns around you helping you to celebrate your anniversary...I'm thinking wow...they really go all out...then you told me why. LOL. Love your sense of humor. The art project sounds interesting to say the least...are you going to provide us with some pictures??? Have a great day. Hugs.

Kathryn...love at first sight hey! I love hearing how others met. Garry and I met in grade eight and have been together ever since. Technically we are closing in on being together for almost 48 years. Wow, where does the time go. I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else. Enjoy your walk today. Hope that you were able to get your tooth taken care of. Hugs.

Mermaid Kathy...glad that you didn't have to take Marie any where when she was feeling dizzy. Last time was not a good one for either of you. Hope she is doing better soon. I'm excited about our upcoming road trip. No schedules, no obligations, just us doing what ever the day prompts us to do. The kids have set their wedding date now and things are in the works. We will be heading to Mexico at the end of April, 2015. The way things are heading for our other daughter we could very well be heading somewhere in 2015 for her wedding too! Might as well get all the weddings over done with in one year *grin*.

Lightening...welcome to the team. Jump right in and join the chats and challenges. If you don't understand something, just ask, some one will answer or help you out. We are pretty laid back and just enjoy each others support and company. Looking forward to getting to know you better. Hugs.


Well, my shovel is calling my name...best go and answer it.

Have a great day
Hugs,
Wanda

Good afternoon Sparkies...

Wanda - I'm so happy for you that your test result were all positive. YAY!!! What great news. Now hope that headache went away for you. I agree that the weather has lots to do with it.
Your Anniversary get away with Garry sounds nice. Me and mine used to do that a lot but I became the non traveler. Just too much for me. Thanks for all your support. I know we have come a long way huh?

Shirl - You have been there with us too. Without all the positive support I don't know where I'd be. hehehe Oh and Yep I'm hanging... Sounds like you have a big day of it today. Enjoy!

Kathryn - Nice story of how you and your Dh met. Glad that it has worked out for you so well. enjoy your walk today... Oh and yes I'm sure all would love to it if you share those positive quotes...

Priscilla - Your Creative project sounds interesting... Have fun! Oh and how nice that all the surrounding towns help you celebrate your Anny... hehehe

Well I was suppose to take my friend Maire in for a surgical consult but she was not feeling well and was dizzy. So she canceled which was good. I did not want to have a repeat of her possibly falling again.
So put some laundry in to wash and waiting for dinner... Since we had a cold front we made Chili... yum... We don't get to eat it much since it's a cold weather meal.

Sending more Sunshine your way but have to keep a little for us today. hehehe

Positive Quote-Do more of what makes you healthy
I am now posting my quotes on face book so more of my friends and family can enjoy them and I started last week putting at the bottom of my posts so my other Spark friends can see them. I hope they Spark others.

Raining all this week but that won't keep me from my walks. Today I am walking to the dentist. I have a sore tooth that really needs to be filled.

Wanda glad to hear you had good results from your tests. Hubby and I have been together almost 9 years. Seems like just yesterday when he passed me in the hall as I was rubbing my head and asked me "Young lady does your head hurt". I took one look at him and knew he was who I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.

Hi group! I, too, feel as if I am having a "girls' morning" with all of you.
Today is overcast and around 50, maybe? I am working on a crafty kind of art project making sub-atomic particles (hehehe) out of painted Styrofoam, long beading pins and beads. I ordered two books off Amazon to help me with my research and am planning a room full of goodies explaining why I think we are a part of eternity. Huh???? Stay tuned.....

To Wanda a giant emoticon on all your results.

To those of you coming up on anniversaries emoticon early! I would love to go on a little get away trip, but DH is not a traveler.
We arrange every year to have the towns around us throw giant fireworks displays! Yes, our anny is July 4th! 33 this year.

Everyone walk well, and eat clean. Love to all

Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

Good morning all. It's a chilly one 9 out, but the sun is shinning and clear, blue sky and no snow on the ground. Ladies night was fun last night we went to a Mexican restaurant here in town, there were 10 of us chatting and laughing. Breakfast is cooking, 10 is exercise class, then time to fix lunch and meeting Margaret at 2 for our nice inside walk.

Wanda sorry about the headache, I really believe they are weather related and hope this is the last snow for you, Mauri's getting more too, everyone is so ready for winter to leave.

Mermaid hang in there, it'll get better.

All have a good Wed., we are half way through our week.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning everyone,

Shirl...those headaches must be contagious...I had a doozy of a one yesterday too! Started about mid morning at work and eased overnight, but still a residue of it this morning. Thinking positive and trusting that the good Lord will help me through today. I really do think that it must have something to do with the barometric pressure. The snow started again around supper time last night and is still going strong this morning. We are supposed to have snow all day today and up to 20 cm of the stuff. I'll be shoveling the driveway this morning before work...ahhh burning calories, burning calories. I'm sorry to hear about Marci...that is tough when one is so young. Hope you are feeling better and that you are able to get out for your walks with Margaret. Lots of hugs.

Kathryn...woo hoo on the new heels! Good idea to break them in with gentle walks first. Our anniversary is May 4th, one day before yours. 40 years this year, how many for you? Garry and I decided that this year we are going to go away for a few days. Taking a road trip to where ever the vehicle takes us. Just spending some time together, so looking forward to it.

Mermaid Kathy...You are strong and I know you will bounce back quickly. You have come so far from when we first met. I'm so very proud of you. emoticon Thanks for the sunshine...we are going to need it to melt all this new snow *grin*. Hugs and more hugs.

Priscilla, Aly, Mauri and whom ever else pops in today...thanks for all that you contribute to the team. I love logging on in the mornings and feeling like I'm having a visit with some very dear friends. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

I'm off to shovel snow in a few minutes. Have a great day.
Hugs,
Wanda

PS...my doctor's visit was great yesterday. She agreed with me that I DO NOT have sleep apnea that agreed with me that the test was not an accurate test. Considering that I definitely am dreaming at night, I am entering REM sleep, something that apparently you don't do when you have sleep apnea. She also informed me that the heart test came back showing no signs of damage or issues to be concerned about. I'm good to go!

Hey Sparkies...

Hey Thank you all ... wanted you to know that I felt those waves of support and love and see the tide brought me back. hehehe for a minute anyway.
It's been a rough time of it lately. I'm hoping things are getting back to a more normal keel. Taking one day at a time that is for sure.

Shirl - Sorry about your neighbors death. That is very young... Hope that headache staid away. You've had your share here lately... ((hugs))

Wanda - Hope your Dr. Visit today was a positive one... thank you for your hugs & prayers my friend they were needed. (((hugs))) emoticon to melt that additional snow... I've heard that lots of the north is getting more... UGH

We actually are having a cold front as well... it's dropping to 45 tonight with a high of 65 tomorrow. Then back up in the 70 & 80... So I am going to enjoy this last cool day. hehehe

Aly - You are an inspiration... I love the way you think...

Priscilla - I agree with Wanda you really are positive. Thank you for sharing it with ME! It really helped... ((hugs))

Almost time for NCIS... Have a blessed evening... (((HUGS))) to all.

Sorry to hear of your loss, glad your head is feeling better.

I went shopping at the goodwill and got a pair of high heels to wear when I go out for my emoticon on the 5th of May. I am going to wear the shoes for short walks until I am sure I can walk the long walk to the restaurant. I picked out where we are going so I better be able to walk there. I want to wear a dress and look nice for my hubby.

Mermaid Kathy sorry you are feeling down in the dumps emoticon but we will miss you if we don't hear from you.

Good morning all. Starting out the day headache free and praying it stays that way, thanks for all the kind words and prayers, Mauri I am sure the weather changes have a lot to do with the headaches. We got a small dusting of snow here, but it's cold, suppose to warm up towards the weekend and first part of next week. Found out last night that Marci, a handicapped young lady that lived here for a while passed away yesterday, she's probably in her 30's. We need to go to the store this morning, plan on meeting Margaret for a walk this afternoon.

Hope all have a good Tuesday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

Mother Nature has decided that she isn't ready to allow spring to present itself...we have snow predicted for today and tomorrow. Siggghhh! It seems that March will be going out like a lion with a sore paw!

Mermaid Kathy...lots of hugs my friend. I know how hard you battle and it's ok to have those bad days. Just remember that we all care about you and keep your focus on the fact that you have many in your life that are thinking of you and lifting you up. Sending you waves of love and support.

Aly...way to go on taking each day as it comes and not allowing one moment to hold you back from moving forward to your goals. You are an inspiration to all of us. Hugs. What a blessing for your Father in law and his sister to be in the same assisted living facility. That doesn't seem to happen often.

Shirl...take care of yourself my friend. I am lifting you up in prayer and trusting that all will right itself within your body. Congratulations to your SIL on getting the job. So excited for you all. Has your DD heard anything else about her job? I'm off to the doctor's after work today to discuss the results of the tests that I had done. It's good that my doctor wants to keep in the loop. I'm not anticipating any issues. Now that the tests have been done, we can say we did our due diligence and keep on moving forward.

PFERG66...Thank you, thank you, thank you for your positiveness. Thank you for being a part of this team. Hope your day is wonderful too.

Kathryn...yay on the new scale! It's funny how different each scale can be in how much it shows as the weight. You are doing so well with your exercise and walking...it keeps me motivated to do the same. Have a great day.

Wyndy...any signs of spring in your neck of the woods?

Wishing everyone a great day,
hugs,
Wanda

Just getting here this evening, not a good day, woke with a headache, still is there but not as bad, so just doing as little as I can on here tonight. Hope all have had a good Monday.

Mermaid Kathy, you don't need to put on a happy face for us, we love you just the way you are, happy or sad. I certainly don't have a happy face when I have days like today.

Wanda woo hoo on the deal with the door.

Kathryn glad you have a good working scale now.

Aly hope your day was good.

Wishing all a good evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

You all are so kind, and you're so busy I can barely keep up with you in here!! Thank you for asking after me, Shirl and Wanda.

I did have a good week!! This weekend we went to Chicago to visit my husband's father and his sister (both in their 90's). I love them both so, and it's always a pleasure to see them. That they ended up at the same assisted living place in their 90's is amazing to me. My family is all over the place.

I've started incorporating that stair-climbing into my afternoon break, and I did well last week eating just what I packed in the morning for my day. (I can't say as much for TODAY, but tomorrow is a new day. In fact, this next hour is a new hour.) I added these two things to my "streaks" because I feel as if knuckling down on them will help me drop these last stubborn pounds.

Mermaid Kathy: I don't believe in "putting on a happy face"...so good for you. I'm hoping you feel better soon.

All of you, I'm reading and smiling and rooting. emoticon

Wanda glad to hear you had a good weekend with your family. Good deal on getting that storm door.

My weekend was okay too. My new scale is working out well and I like that it only takes 2 AA batteries, I have a big pack of those, I got on sale. Still can't get hubby to step on the scale oh well that is just his way.

Good Morning Sparkies...

Sorry again for not checking in... Things have been NOT good on the home front. I don't want to go into details. But until things get back to an even keel I just can not be positive. It's just not possible at this time. So can't come here and put on a happy face if you know what I mean.

Sending prayers to all of you and would appreciate a few sent back this way.
