Caught my first fish ever! Had to release it because it was a bass and the lake we were fishing stipulates you have to release bass. (They just reopened the lake last year after draining it, etc., so they're wanting to give the bass time to grow). It was so peaceful! The weather was warm but not humid and Leaser Lake is less than an hour away from our house. So relaxing! I prepped dinner before we left, so we had burgers cooked on the grill and corn-on-the-cob for dinner along with a big salad. Great day!

Diane--thanks for the well wishes on thrifting. Never know what we might find! Planning to eat sensibly at lunch. Love it when a plan comes together!

Congrats Dorothy on getting all that work done. Looks like we might have rain this weekend into Monday. Glad DH got a lot of his done.

One more day for the 'challenge'. Don't think I did well, but not as poorly as the last time.

Have a great day, All!

Diane - hope you enjoy your fishing!

I am going to take 1/2 day off so i can get the camp mowed as I will be helping DD tomorrow. It is actually therapeutic to me to do yard work and mow! Most of the time! emoticon Did manage to get our back yard done last night and hubby got the front done!

Barb, think of all the steps you'll get in with your thrifting! Hope your day is super!

Dorothy, what a good mom you are to help with yardwork!

DH is off today again so maybe we'll get to go fishing; first thing tho is grocery run. I've had breakfast, washed dishes and made the bed. Now waiting for my Fitbit to be charged so we can get going. Fred's getting the fishing stuff ready.

Barb - lunches, party's - weigh ins - what are we to do/ So hard!! Hope you enjoy your lunch. Nice of your to help DGD with her lunch. Hope the retirement planner can help you. i am still 10 years away emoticon

Diane - that would be very cool - maybe garage selling or thrifting you could find one! I do enjoy my golf - being outside and walking with no phones or computers - lol!

Planning on going to Erie to help DD with some yard work on Saturday! Other than that have lots of mowing to do!

Dee, just got a look at the bench. It is beautiful! The color is great!

We are planning to talk to a financial advisor next week about the retirement options we have. DH retirement gives them three options and it can be confusing. We want to do what's best for both of us. Geri, the advisor, has worked with this same retirement plan with others and thinks she can advise us. The consultation is free.

I fixed a watch for my DGD yesterday and got it to her today. It had a pin missing that could be pushed and would light up the watch flashing different colors. Very pretty! I hope it stays fixed for a long time.

DH is taking a vacation day Friday and we are going 'thrifting' with a friend and taking her to a birthday lunch. That will mess up my weigh-in on Saturday again. Oh, bother!

Have a great night!

Dorothy, I haven't golfed for years and years, but I did enjoy it. I used to work for Morgan Stanley... all the brokers were really into golfing so I heard lots of golf stories through the years. When I transferred to an office in CA it was the same way, so I think it's the "firm" sport.

Fred fit the carpet this morning, and once the grills get new covers it's really going to look sharp! Gee, if only I could find an old Adirondack chair to redo!

Golfed last night and it was a wonderful night to golf other than the bugs.

Thank you Dorothy! I am so pleased with how it turned out! I love the color, and I can't believe how well it matches the color in the cushion; I thought it would be close, but it's really perfect. Mom and I went to Home Depot this morning and got indoor-outdoor carpeting that will cover the entire patio. It matches the piece that's on there now, and I think that piece will go on the front porch after the railing is repainted. I also ordered a new grill cover to replace the horrid, threadbare cover that's on the grill now. Think I'll have to look for something for the small charcoal grill too...the plastic that's on it now looks really tacky.

Too funny about the dog - I know our dogs would probably not behave - one would want to be in the water - lol! Glad you did enjoy it though! I worked part time at wal-mart for a while for extra money and it is amazing the number of people that go through.

Had mom, my sister and the neighbors over for a small picnic yesterday. It was a pretty hectic day. Then hubby and i took a ride to camp to get the riding lawn mower as he needs to fix it. I was one tired lady last night!

Well, we finally got to go fishing yesterday! DH replaced the screen in the patio door and we washed the glass in the doors, etc.

We had to get those little plastic holders for our licenses so we had to go to WalMart first...we don't go there very often and now I know I won't go on a Saturday afternoon! I waited in the car with the dog and the lines were so long that Fred used the "self check-out" line...and he hates that with a passion. emoticon

So we finally get to the fishing pond at the Rod and Gun Club, get set up and Mollie decides to be a big ole major PILL! She was horrid! Barking, choking herself 'cause she didn't want to be tethered to a tree by the water, she wanted to be in DH's face, and in my lap, and whining, and just bratty behavior. Not conducive to relaxing with a fishing rod. FINALLY, he took her back to the car and we did have a bit of quiet, relaxing and watching the fish toy with my bait. Fortunately the temp was low and there was still a breeze so she was ok for the short time she was in her crate. Never again does she come fishing! She wants to be traipsing thru the trees, digging in the mud, chasing fish in the water...you know, typical dog behavior. Live and learn! When we lived in San Diego we took our Golden to the pier all the time for fishing and she just curled up on her rug and dozed. Mollie is not a good fishing companion. emoticon

Bar - you will have to post the pineapple recipe - sounds yummy. hope DH is feeling better.

My mom and sister and the neighbors are coming over for a picnic today so I need to get my house whipped into shape and get some cooking done.

Don't know what it was here last night. There was frost, though, when I took the dogs out a little after 5:30 AM. As suspected, Harley is a handful! He was tied out a wee bit today and found a bone to chew on that kept him pretty busy. DH was up around three feeling ill and was up trying to help him figure out what was wrong. Don't know when I dozed off again until I heard Harley.

Went to the farm to get our milk today, then a few groceries from the store and home again. Planning to make that scalloped pineapple that the DGKs like so much for the picnic on Monday.

Have a great Memorial celebration! emoticon

Wow Dorothy, that's cold! Brrr! We had temps in the 40's last night.

The bench looks great! I took pics, so I'll let you know when they're uploaded from my camera. We still need more covering for the floor. Haven't decided what we'll do yet...we only have a small section of carpeting so will look for remnants. Also need to order a new grill cover...our's is really threadbare.

Looks like this afternoon is fishing...finally! My poor DH is so looking forward to going but we've been so busy doing things outside.

Warmer today and sunny, I may have to paint the bench in the garage because of the breeze, but that works. I'm anxious to get to it. We had a lovely dinner at Carrabba's last night...crazy story: I went online got all the nutrient info for a small Pollo Sorrento, cup of minestrone and steamed broccoli. (Carrabba has "large" and "small" portions you can order, and they have a whole section online that lists their Gluten Free choices and choices 600 calories or less). So I ordered, the food came and it was soooooo good! I had 2 bites left of my chicken when I realized I did NOT request the small dinner! It was so worth it, and luckily I had eaten a really substantial breakfast, got busy and only had a protein bar for lunch, so when I added in everything from dinner I still had enough carbs left for grapes and strawberries last night. I didn't even have anything to eat when we donated platelets 'cause we went right after dinner. Next time, I'll be sure to specify a small portion. (Duh)

Barb it is surprising how fast the grass is growing because it has been cool. I need to get to Cano this weekend and finish mowing the back. Hubby can not use the rider back there. What a stinker dogs can be. Our two labs got into some dead fish out back. Man did they stink. I usually have a picnic here and have my mom and sister come over.

Diane. Nice to get all of the errands done. Hubby and son fish but not as much as they should. Luckily son can still fish for free. Way to go on the weight loss. You have much to be proud of.

I Ned to get out back and work in my garden but it is still chilly. Also need to get all of my flowers lots under cover for tonight. Suppose to get a big frost

Wow! You are doing great, Dee! Would love to get at 'atta girl' from our Dr., but I have not lost enough weight for that yet. However, the last time we were there, the nurse said DH should be doing what I am doing because the cholesterol was so good. I have never had a problem with it, but he has. His was better the last time, but still not where the Dr. wants it to be. We have been doing Omegas for our health and I think they are working!!!

Dog is off her feed today. It may be from the antibiotic she is on for the Lyme's. Maybe tomorrow will be better. DH found her snooping around a bird's nest yesterday. Some eggs are missing and he suspects her. Not leaving her out today without me!

Stay dry everyone!

I was so busy yesterday I didn't take time last night to do too much of an update. We got all our running around done: bank, Cabela's for fishing licenses, haircut, doctor's appointment, Home Depot for the fence, Wegman's and finally home.

Doctor's appointment was the best ever! My A1C dropped from 8 (in January) to 5.8, and all the blood work was perfect! I also dropped 37 pounds since the last time I was in his office and he was really surprised. In fact, his nurse was so excited for me and I told her about SparkPeople so maybe she'll sign up too. It's so great when your doctor says "I'm proud of you! Keep up the good work!" He even went so far as to say "Hi Skinny" when he walked in the room. (That's why I like him...he's funny!)

It's raining now and I'm hoping this is just a passing shower so we can go fishing; I'm excited to try my new rod and reel. At least the weather won't keep us from an Anniversary Lunch. Haven't decided yet where I want to go. We've been together since September 1997, married on May 21, 1999. We've had great times and tough times and I wouldn't trade a second.

Yes, Dee, do post the before and after pics of the bench. Don't you just love it when a project comes together!?!

Have a great weekend Dorothy. DH and I are suppose to go to DD for Memorial Day picnic.

DH has the truck running again and the push mower. He spent quite a bit of time pushing it last evening. He got half of it done and needed to come in for a rest and warm up. Imagine mowing grass in the cold!

Have aprons to make for the darling GD for the birthdays in June. We are dog sitting this weekend for my son. That will be a chore! Harley is so wiry--to be kind! But they have a shock collar on him to calm and correct. April can only take so much of him before she tries to avoid him. This might prove to be a very interesting weekend!

Hope DH can till the bank so I can get some Alyssum planted.

Have a great Holiday weekend, All!

Hope Mary Anne and Karen stop in for a visit!

Barb - I know Maryanne is lurking around just not sure where - lol. And have not heard from Karen for quite some time - sure do miss them. Congratulations on the bird houses.

Diane - can't wait to see those pictures. I think it is very calming to sit by water or a fire.

Taking Friday off to get my garden ready for my veggies but won't be able to plant until Saturday as it is suppose to get very cold on Friday night!

Barb emoticon on the sale of the birdhouses!! Handcrafted items are always so much nicer to have.

Dorothy, I must admit fly fishing is not my first choice...but then, I've never done it so I might enjoy it. I actually think that making the lures is appealing...you can get very creative, and hand-tied flies can be expensive to buy. I actually have a book to teach me how to do that, so who knows? We don't have a boat, but we have a membership at a Rod and Gun Club and there are 2 fishing lakes on that property, When we lived in San Diego we used to fish off the pier and I found it so relaxing to just watch my bobber in the water. I'm so amateur it's not funny, but who knows????

I'll take before and after photos of the bench. I'm hoping to do it this week when it's a bit less humid. Come to think of it, I'll take before and after pics of the patio too because anything we do will be an improvement!

emoticon All of the birdhouses sold Saturday! emoticon

We have the parts picked up to fix the riding mower and the truck. Now DH just needs some time to get it done. Yesterday, I had follow up for the infection I had in my body and it is still there, but not as bad. Trying something else. DH had some yearly tests done and they were better than last year.

After hours away from home, we went to a retirement fair last night to get some info on that. DH is planning to retire at the end of the year. We will lose our dental, but we have some other arrangements for health and eye. Gotta have all our ducks in a row! emoticon emoticon

Does anyone know how Karen is doing? Have not seen her on here for a long time. Or Mary Anne either? Or Pynetree? Guess life gets busy!

Have a great week Everybody!!!

Dinae - it is listed as a rental in the Allegheny mountains - I am going to try to get a facebook page up on it but I could send you the info if you are truly interested.

Our local Y teaches fly fishing everyone in a while - I think it would be fun for hubby and son to take. Me - no thanks - there are too may other things i would rather do. But if he gets our boat up and running i will go out with them and read while they fish. The closest Cabellas to us is in Buffalo.

I just had blood work done and all of my numbers cam back really good - made me very happy.

I would love to see a picture of your bench - I have a table I would love to paint a happy color!

Dorothy, oh, you are so welcome... emoticon We got a really nice shade of red for the bench, it will look really nice with the awning. Also, we got the fencing for around the patio, and Fred and I will pick it up on Wednesday. Wednesday is "run around day"...we're getting our fishing licenses (I understand I will be taught to fly fish) at Cabela's, in to Home Depot to pick up the fence and then to the doctor where I hope I will find a lower A1c and better glucose numbers!

How would I find the posting on Pennswoods? Do I look for the town?

I'm so looking forward to painting the bench and getting the fencing in; then, we're putting indoor-outdoor carpeting on the slab so we can be out there barefoot and the dog can lay out there. It'll be a really nice place to sit and read and listen to the birds. This is a really quiet neighborhood...especially during the week. Weekends are when people cut their grass, etc. so it can be more noisy but overall it's really peaceful.

Just lost my post - grr!!

Diane - thanks for the tip on how to strip furniture - lol!

The camp is in a good place for fisherman, boasters, four wheeling, snowmobiling and hunting. Its in a good place and I am working on getting it posted in different locations for weekly or weekend renting. Right now I have it on Pennswoods with a picture but am working on getting it posted elsewhere with more pictures. Worked up there all weekend and am pooped - glad to be back at work so I can gt some much needed rest.

Dorothy the camp location sounds wonderful...and really handy for vacationing golfers! (not to mention fisherman I guess). Do you have any pictures of the camp posted?

Barb, into every life a little treat must fall...and if that treat is a donut, I say "Yum"!

My mom and I are going to Home Depot today to choose fencing for the patio area...oh, the excitement. We may even find paint for the Parson's bench that's been outside for a few seasons. By the way, if you ever want to strip a finished piece of furniture, leave it out in the elements for a year or so...that'll do 'er. Now I can paint it.

Denise - our camp is in New York State near the Onoville marina which is part of Kinzu Dam. It is such a pretty area - 16 miles from werhe we live. We are going to try to start renting in weekly and weekends. Its right between 2 golf courses too!

Barb - I hope you enjoyed every bite of that donut emoticon emoticon My hubby has to get new blades for our camp lawn mower as it is cutting uneven. Always something!

Worked in my garden a bit - trying to get all of the dandelions out as I would like to start planting veggies next week. Also got a lot done at camp but need to go up and finish today. My van is full of bed linens that I am going to take to the laundry mat to do!

Dee, thanks for stopping and looking at the old birdhouse pic. The new ones are in a blog from earlier this week.

Went with DH to get a part for his truck. He is working on a mower today. So hope things go well for him.

Spoke at a ladies' meeting this AM. We had a good time! Only donuts and coffee offered. Took a donut with me when I left. Just one and I ate the whole thing! emoticon
After all, weigh-in is over for today! LOL

Barb - Do you have any photos of the birdhouses? (I should check your SparkPage I guess emoticon ) I hope they all sell! Sounds like the hot dogs are a healthy choice; I always look for them w/o nitrates. DH loves hot dogs, if he grills them he often grills something else like chicken or fish, so I'll often skip the hot dog. I like them, but I don't eat them too often. There is a brand I really like, Colman's, and they're a healthy choice.

Dorothy where is your camp? As soon as I read the word "camp" I immediately pictured my FIL's deer camp in the Upper Peninsula. I really love going up there despite the two days it takes us to drive there. We were there in October, it was wonderful! DH and the dog didn't see too many woodcock, but she found a errant rooster that she dispatched to its maker emoticon

I hope everyone enjoys the day! It's beautiful here, and warming up! I've got laundry going and now I'm off to clean the kitchen. Later!

Barb - I hope they do sell for you - that is awesome that she is willing to help. At least you bought the healthier hot dog and i think eating one once in a while is not going to kill you.

Hubby and I are heading to camp today to get it straightened out as we are trying to rent it out weekly or weekends.

Off to do banking and errands today. DH picked up some much needed parts to get the Allis mower going again. Got some groceries. Martin's was having a sale on some hot dogs that are GF, no nitrates, no MSG. Got 3 pounds for me and 3 for my DD. I know they are processed, but I like a good hot dog once in awhile.

Took the birdhouses to town with me and met the lady who is taking them to the Armstrong Co garden show. She feels certain they will sell. Sure hope so! If they don't all sell, I will have to meet her again to pick them up. Otherwise, she will send me a check.

Have a great weekend, All!

Diane - so glad they are rebuilding - that will boost your town. I really need to work in my gardens to get them ready for planting - I got started but have not gotten back to finish. Always so much to do. Sounds like you have gotten alot accomplished. Sure hope you are not too sore.

The girl I work with called off today so has been very busy for me - ready for the weekend to begin.

Good news for our town...the owner of the Buckeye Tavern has vowed to rebuild and keep whatever can be used of burnt structure. We drove past yesterday, the entire second floor is gone. Clean up is starting, and I know those 50 employees are hoping for things to go well.

Yesterday I trimmed the 2 bushes behind our shed to make more room for the tomatoes that will be planted there. DH got 2 of the 3 planting areas ready so he was pretty pleased. I was glad to get the trimming done, but using the electric trimmer left me with "jelly arms"... I'm still fighting frozen shoulder and I guess I should have taken more breaks. Then, later I was playing with the dog and she bumped me..I lost my balance and fell, so I'm kind of sore today. Oh, when will I learn???? I'll take it a bit easier today emoticon

We had a very productive morning: first stop, blood tests for next week's doctor appointment, then weekly grocery shopping. DH is now preparing soil for our garden beds. Yesterday we got pictures hung in bedroom...I still have some organizing to do but it's going well! We're going to put new screen and rollers on patio door when he's done "playing in the dirt".

Dorothy technology is so wonderful...when it works the way it should emoticon Yesterday was pretty warm, but very breezy...which was a good thing except that it was a bad situation locally. A nearby landmark, The Buckeye Tavern, burned last night. It was built in the 1700's and it's a very popular restaurant, tons of history...it was a total loss. They're still investigating the cause, but it started on the outside upper deck and within 20 minutes the whole place was engulfed. So sad!! emoticon Thank God, no one was hurt, everyone got out safely. I feel so badly for the employees and especially the owner. The food was terrific, in fact we still have money left on a gift card. The owner also owns another local landmark they restored and reopened. I guess it will be some time before it can be determined if the tavern can be rebuilt, although hundreds of years of history are gone. The Tavern was also said to be haunted.

Ran home at lunch time yesterday and moved some rocks and mowed the lawn after work. Today a pedi!

I've had a frustrating morning! My mom has a Toshiba laptop and a few days ago the sound stopped. Checked everything, speakers, etc....the Flash Player won't start. It's there, I've "enabled" it on Chrome plugins...nothing. It's beyond me and I don't know if she did something (she has a bad habit of pushing all sorts of buttons, over and over again, so who knows what she did.) Anyway, that's it, I'm done...but I hate that I can't help with this. Today is supposed to be hot and humid, then cooler the next 2 days. Looks like summer is closer than I thought.

Quiet day at home. Son is away with his family to a Pirates game. DD is off to her in'-laws. DH and I went for ice cream for a treat and then came back home.

Dorothy, glad things have worked for DH. Hope you had a great day!

Dee, fixing up can be good but with a lot a lot of work. We have more floor to replace here. Hope we can get it done soon. Hoping also to get the walls finished in the porch this summer. So much to do!!! Thankful for the nice weather to get some stuff done.

Have a great night, All!

Dorothy safe travels today and a Happy Mother's Day! Glad x-rays were ok. Still have straightening to do in bedroom...painting will probably be next month, but it will be easier to do with the room precleaned and decluttered.

Wishing a great day for ALL the people who are considered "Mom" by someone. Let's not leave anyone out...

Dorothy prayers for a good x-ray for your DH! My DH has decided that today we're going to rearrange the furniture in the bedroom, so I'll be busy! First I have to straighten the room! We want to paint the room and I think he wants to get the arrangement right so the painting part goes smoothly. Lost 1/2 pound today...which doesn't seem like a whole lot but when you consider it's 2 sticks of butter that's pretty good! Oh, and I LOVE my elliptical! emoticon

Barb you can buy a "goodie" for your closet with those extra goodie points emoticon

Dorothy the spider bite seems to be getting better; using hydrocortisone cream on it. Hope DH gets a "clean" bill of health! Speaking of spiders, DH killed a HUGE black ugly thing on the patio yesterday. We were out there cleaning up leaves, etc. and clearing area for gardening. I SO hate spiders!!!!

Barb I need to go through clothing too! I am looking forward to the day when I can give away or get rid of ALL my big sizes!! I have some smaller sizes I'm looking forward to wearing again. I had to laugh when I read your comment about clothing for different seasons. When I met my second husband he had been living in CA for awhile and he just thought it was hysterically funny that I had "winter" shoes and "summer" shoes.

Have a great day, everyone. I am waiting for my new exercise toy to be delivered by Amazon. It's an InMotion E1000 Elliptical Trainer. Don't have room anywhere for a regular Elliptical so I went online to research the best compact trainer available and found this one. I will be able to easily move it from room to room or even on to the patio and I can use it in a standing OR a sitting position. C'mon UPS truck!!

Dorothy, hope everything goes well at the Dr's for your DH. We have checkups scheduled later this month. I am going to get a thermography done and Barry is going for his yearly checkup. Actually, he has two. One with the ND and one with the MD. He was back to work yesterday after being off two days -- Friday and Monday. Finally, he seems to be back to normal, if there is such a thing for him. LOL

Dee, sounds like you are enjoying being out and walking. I was out playing with the dog yesterday. She loves playing ball!

DD is still struggling with a cold. We have a gathering to attend at her church on Saturday for Mother's Day. Hope she is feeling up to it.

I have been going through clothes again. Have a bag and a box to donate. Some of hubby's, most are mine. I am needing to have more space for other things. This having clothes for four different seasons is the pits! But along with that, I have a few things stored for a 'hopeful' smaller size. Giving some smaller sized things to DD.

Have a great week folks!

Diane - he has a Dr appointment tomorrow and I told him to mention it to the Dr. Because I am concerned he may have cracked something. Ug - hate spider bites - you best watch it that it does not get any worse. I remember DD's got huge one year.

Girl I work with is off this week so double duty for me.


Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serinity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the differance.

Dorothy, I sure hope your DH is ok! That's a long way to fall!! I hope he gets checked out even if he feel ok (I know how hard it is to get a husband to go to the doctor!) Mollie is so funny when she's out, one minute she's barking "THROW the Ball! THROW the Ball!" and the next it's "I smell bunny and squirrel tracks!"

I have had a weird day...at some point yesterday when I was outside I got some kind of bug or spider bite. It's on my right arm just above the bicep. I didn't find it until I was getting ready to take a shower and I saw 3 bumps. It doesn't hurt, but last night and this morning I felt itchy all over. I slept maybe 6 hrs. last night and today around 11 I took an antihistamine which really knocked me for a loop...I lay down at noon and didn't wake up until almost 4pm! Now it's 5:00 and I'm out-of-sync. The bites are red and slightly swollen, but they don't really hurt. DH said there are lots of spiders outside by the shed and in the Japanese maple and I was sitting under the tree yesterday afternoon. Think I'll find another spot.

Diane - i washed my sheets this weekend and hung them out - love sheets that smell so fresh. Dogs are so cuter how they have to sniff everything!

Barb - hope everyone is feeling better your way.

DH and I helpted a freind get things packed up, sorted out and thrown away yesterday as she is moving. While there hubby fell off of a ladder about 10 feet - the ladder tipped. Can I say heart attack. Luckily he does not see to have gotten seriously injured but I bet he will be feeling it today. I think he will be going to the chiropractor.

emoticon Just stopping by to wish you all a great healthy week! Flu is visiting our house through DH. He has not much of an appetite, aching all over, and making lots of visits to the bathroom. Hoping for a better day today. I will be traveling to church alone. DD is ill, also. She sounded so bad on the phone, her BIL couldn't tell if it was her or her husband.

Had a great time out with son yesterday. He was going where I needed to go, so I hitched a ride with him. We had some great conversation. Don't get to visit with him much. So appreciated our time together.

Keep Sparking! Have a sunshiny day! emoticon
