Diane - May has flown by and so will June - I have 3 of the 4 weekends with something going on already. And then it will be the 4th. Unbelievable! But I have so enjoyed this weekend doing alot of puttering around in my yard - even if it has been humid.

Char - we are having my mom and sister over for a cookout out today. But first hubby and I will have to go mow at the cabin.

Yesterday my son and I went to the cemetery's and paid our respect.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Kind of a sultry weather day, but it didn't feel quite as humid today. Rain started tonight, but then I already knew it was coming based on the miserable night I had. Fibro pain always seems to hit around 10 or 11 at night and goes on until at least 2 or 3 am. I always seem to finally sleep well a few hours before I have to get up. Oh well, like Char said it's always something! I manage, and I'm working at acceptance of the limitations when they occur, and my goal is to not allow the limitations to frustrate and depress me. I'm gettin' there. Baby steps.

Is it just me or has May gone by rather quickly??

Diane - I hear you there - I hate when my mind wanders when I am doing something and then I can not remember if I did it or not - lol!

Char - hopefully all goes well with the recovery of your hand and your writing will be fluid again soon.

I did some washing and hung out clothes yesterday - they dried s nice. Then I did it again later on and it started to rain. So now my clothes have had several rinses - hopefully they dry today.

I even managed to get the house dusted and the sweeper run here and the cabin cleaned and ready for guests. I still need to declutter my kitchen - I hate how stuff just piles up.

In the afternoon Michael and I did some shopping and had lunch - it was nice as he does not always like to hang out with me.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

My goodness Char, you're becoming a whole new you surgery by surgery emoticon I am so glad everything has gone well so far!

Hot and just very slightly less humid today. I am happy for the sun though; and at least earlier in the week the weather was quite nice. I decided to prepare some seed pots this evening, and I think I double planted some pots. I think I have squash seeds and cucumber seeds in a couple of the pots because my mind was elsewhere fretting. I decided to leave the remainder for tomorrow. There are times I wish I could smack myself for worrying about things over which I have no control but have to find a way to manage. Blech!

Diane - I love the info you can find online as well - makes life so much easier. I think I have something out back eating plants - looks like 3 of my plants have been eaten already - not sure what is back there but the marigolds I planted did not deter them.

Char - glad you got your stitches out and the eyes are ok.

Today back to camp I go to get it ready and will probably do some shopping this afternoon - plus I really need to clean my house - maybe I will do that first and it will be done and out of my way.

Happy Friday everyone!

Char, it's almost 4pm and I hope your stitches are out! Will you have any hand therapy now? I also hope you have no more pain! (Yep, you got them out! emoticon

Dot, the last time we planted eggplant it didn't do well because of slug activity. I found a good website with natural suggestions to get rid of them:

Char - did you get your stitches out yet?

Barb - I was able to get my veggies planted last night and the lawn mowed.

Diane - I am trying broccoli and cauliflower again this year - something ate it last year, also Brussels sprouts, eggplant and spaghetti squash. Also have zucchini and cucumbers and peppers. I would love to start a herb garden - guess I need to do a little research on it.

Need to run to the cabin and make sure it is ready for overnight guests and then back up tomorrow to get it ready for guests for the rest of the weekend.

Good Morning! emoticon

Char, oh thank God you both are safe! I hope there wasn't too much damage done in and to your garage. Also, isn't it heartwarming to have people come to your rescue? Thank God for all the good people in the world who care about their fellow man.

DH was off Tuesday and Wednesday (that was our weekend), and we bought plants Tuesday on the way home from the gym and put them in yesterday. So now we have: a few onions, shallots,garlic (that came through the weird winter weather), broccoli, eggplant, kale (came back from last year), tomatoes (cherry-size and others, and this year Roma tomatoes!), sweet frying peppers, sweet chocolate peppers and poblanos, bush basil, purple ruffle basil, parsley (from last year), rosemary and a new lavender plant. Now all we need are seeds! I want to get purple stringless beans, lettuces for our salads, I have pattypan squash seeds I'm going to start today, and we'll see what else strikes our fancy when we are "seed shopping". Oh, and sage and thyme too. Dot, I feel like a kid in a candy store when we're looking at seeds. I think we'll go to Tractor Supply because they have a lot of heirloom seeds. I have to see what sort of shade loving plants I can get too as have some shady areas I'd like to use.

Barb, that's a great way to get crafting ideas! Have wonderful time with your friend!

Char -- Whew! That was a close call. So glad you were being watched over.

Dorothy -- So nice you get to golf again. Your game will get better as the nice days keep up. I hear you about the plants and flowers. Our starting plants are about ready to put out. DH said the garden needs tilled one more time before putting them in. We are planning to get a cement basket to plant some flowers in. We have some Alyssum to put along the front of our yard. DH put in some lettuce at our large rock in the yard. He usually puts onions and a cherry or grape tomato plant there. No sign of frost in sight, so maybe this weekend will give us some time to get the rest of the plants out.

Diane, hope all is well with you.

Off to lunch with a friend for her birthday today. This AM we will do some thrifting that we both really like to do. Wanted also to visit an antique mall that we haven't been to for years --not looking to buy anything there. We just enjoy looking. DH will be our driver!

Have a great day!!!

Char - emoticon glad you were able to get it under control - scary indeed. Good thing you went out to check.

Took my neighbor to pick up her van last night and ended up picking up more veggies and flowers to plant - I am so bad this time of year - but it is my therapy - lol! So hopefully it will be nice after work and I will be able to get them planted.

Dr Appt. Went well.
Roy was cutting the hedges fir the guy next door. I smelt something burning and thought the longer it was that he was burning up his hedge trimmer. So I went out side an it wasn't that it was our garage on fire.
I screamed for him our car,and 2 motorcycles were in there.
I was afraid to move the car in fear it would blow up.
The guys in the lumber yard scream for him as well finally I ran to him. He got the fire extinguisher and out it out followed by t g e hose. A man ran up to help he heard me screaming.
He pulled it out with the rake. It was a plastic garbage can combusted.
The was so scary we could have lost it all.
God was with us.

Barb - glad to hear that the funeral went well. Hope you are able to get your outside work done.

Char - if your weather is like ours it was beautiful yesterday and suppose to be again today. Perfect for drying sheets and blankets. I only planted cucumbers, zucchini, and peppers. I may get a spaghetti squash too.

Last night was perfect for golfing - my game was not great but that is ok - it was nice to be outside.

tonight I need to run my girlfriend to pick up her van - about a 45 minute drive each way.

Hello everyone! It's a bee-u-tee-ful sunny day here! I decided to work in the yard today, so I loaded up on sunscreen and worked on the planting area behind our shed. When DH is off this week he can turn the soil and we'll put the weed cloth down. I'm hoping we can get some plants in this week. We have some onions (the weird winter weather was not good for the onions we planted last fall), and our broccoli is doing nicely. I noticed my kale is going to seed already! And the chives all have flowers on them! Has anyone ever eaten the chive flowers? I think you can put them into salads, but I'd like to know if there is anything else I can do with them. My lavender has really taken off too. If it's nice tomorrow I might just work on that side of the house. (Or later today, we'll see). When I was weeding along the back of our house I found lots of wild strawberry plants. They're apparently volunteers, so I kept them to see how they'll do. Between the mint (spearmint) and wild strawberries there's a lot of fragrant green.

Char, I think waiting for stitches to come out seems like an eternity, and the area around them itches, it's so annoying.

Dot it sounds like you really accomplished a lot over the weekend. The pollen count here has been exceptionally high, and my DH is super allergic to oak tree pollen so he's been having a bad time with sneezing and all the other fun stuff that goes with allergies. Certainly put a crimp in his gardening activities.

Barb, what projects are you working on now?

Have a great day!

Char - sounds like a plan!

I got my garden hoed out and my plants planted yesterday. Also got my deck straightened up and my garden decorations out. Then the weather changed and it was raining, thundering and hailing off and on for a couple of hours. By evening it had stooped and was gorgeous out. Crazy weather. Today is the nutritionist and cleaning at he cabin after work.

Char - don't over do it and wear your self out - enjoy your dinner.

Barb - that is so sad - loosing the nephews and now all those children with out a mom.
How wonderful that almost all of your birdhouses sold.

Sounds like my lawn mowers - when hubby did buy me a new me it did not last much longer than a used one.

Diane - Sounds like me - 23 years with my husband now and 16 yeas with my first husband - that is a lot of years!

Enjoyed my short stay with my daughter and her family - now hoping to work in my veggie garden today - I have to get it all cleaned out so I can get my plants planted.

Dee -- Yes, there are pics. The May 11 blog called "Ready for the Garden Show" is where they are. The houses we made this year and the hangings.

A very busy day. Just now winding down. We have a wedding tomorrow. Hope all goes well!

Barb, did you take any pictures of the birdhouses? Are they the "Outhouse" Houses? I'm glad to hear another one sold. I was "revisiting" your photos on your page. What do the garden hangings look like?

It's sunny this morning, so I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. I have some plants I want to get in before DH leaves for work. He works from 2-10 today and those late days really mess with our eating schedule (well, mine more than his!) At least I have some good stir-fry leftovers. Last night I made a Pork stir-fry with peanut sauce (I used Chef Meg's recipe for the sauce) and it turned out really well.

Char, I hope your pain level doesn't prevent you from having a good weekend.

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary: 17 years. If I add the years from my first marriage it's a total of 46 years. Yikes. At least I can say the past 17 years (plus 2 before we got married) have been the best years. emoticon

Have a great Friday everyone!

Dorothy -- not the father of the motherless children. He passed a few years back. Now the Mom and Dad are both gone. So sad and such a waste. This nephew is still on my DH's side. He leaves two children behind. Through legal complications, the Mom has the children. So glad they weren't with him when he was found.

We are suppose to pick up our shed today and meet the lady who sold the bird houses for us. She sold one more in the interim. That makes 8 out of 9 sold. Just have the garden hangings and one bird house left. DH may keep it for himself. We don't have a plain white one hanging. The money will go toward a new push mower for DH. We have only had one in our nearly 44 years of marriage. He has gotten used and fixes . . . and fixes . . . and fixes . . . emoticon

Suppose to be nice today. Hope you all enjoy your day!

Weird - I just lost my post!

Barb - is it the same family that just lost the mother?? Prayers to you andyour family for all of the losses this week.

Diane - I do the same - treat them sweet as pie and make them choke on it - lol. Just easier to be nice to people so they can not back stab you...Hair is cut and colored and I have the day off to get as many projects done as I can before I head to Buffalo!

Wow, this has been quite a week for this team with health and job problems. Char, I really feel for your situation as I've had to deal with the same problem several times and in different jobs. Does that same back-stabbing, lazy, miserable person work everywhere???? I decided that such people are desperately unhappy and nothing I can do or say will change it. So, instead of lowering myself to their level I just killed them with kindness. Odd how that works so many times. Like forgiveness, I did it for me not for them. It didn't eliminate all the stress, but if you give people nothing to criticize except "being nice", it takes away the drama. Good luck!! Oh, and best of luck on your surgery!!! I hope the healing process goes fast!

Barb, such sad news about your nephew and his family. I'm so sorry for your loss and I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

Dot have a wonderful, relaxing trip!!

Good morning everyone.
Dorothy true and guess what she was off so won't see her till I get backI was called in by administration and the boss yesterday.
They told me they tried to get me a raise since I will be doing do much more and cant.
I asked for a meeting with her involved so that will be on June 1st.
Going to lay it all on the table.
They said after that they want an answer by June 8th.
There at no postion available to transfer to another office only part time.
And now I have been told there is someone from the hospital that wants to transfer to this postion not sure I believe that bit that is so I make a quicker desison.
So we will see.I really hate this.
Was praying things would work out and sell this house.
Oh ah they say it will be a good th u s I will be a great asset.
I said I can tell u I won't take her bull she talks about everyone.
Riding my bike and need to take my shower and head out to have my surgery have to be there at 6 and they will do it at 830.
Have a good one.

Clearing up the info on Ashley, the young mother who died yesterday. It was not an accident as first thought that she died from. She had gone to the hospital over the weekend when not feeling well. They examined her and dismissed her. She went back to the hospital with a temp of 106 from an infection. They found she had lesions on her lungs. She passed in the hospital and they said there was nothing they could do.

DGD coming to stay with us a little while this afternoon while DD and twins have an apt at the beauty shop. They are planning to be away this weekend. We will be taking care of their dogs.

DH has been working crazily on lawn mowers and riding lawn tractors for a week or more now. He will get them running and then they need more adjustments. We really need a new push mower. We'll see . . .

The weather is still not making up its mind -- cloudy, sunny, cold, breezy, drizzling . . .

Oh, bother!

Barb - that is so sad - prayers for the children and family.

7 if 9 birdhouses is not bad at all. I am sure with the way weather has been was a huge factor in not selling the plants.

Char - hope hubbies results come back good and I hope you get to somewhat enjoy your time off.

Managed to get the mowing done last night. Probably no golfing tonight as the weather is not cooperating but hopefully next week.

emoticon Char, hope all goes well. I see we are all staying busy. Heard from the lady who took our bird houses to sell. She said it was such a rainy day they did not even do well with selling their plants. So bad, they were selling buy one tomato plant, get three free. Anyway, she sold seven bird houses (I sent nine). The hangings didn't sell, but the day was a bad 'outside' shopping day.

The mother of our nephew's children died today. Don't have all the details. It was the results of a vehicular accident. Don't have the details. She leaves behind five children -- three in foster care. One under the age of one, still with her. So sad!

Have a good night!

Char - always nice to have dinner out with family.

I got my weekly cleaning done yesterday downstairs - still need to do some decluttering. I changed the sheets on two beds upstairs and ran the sweeper up there as well as out away the clothes. Today I am going to try to clean out my closet and I will need to clean the cabin. Also may go buy some veggie plans but will have to wait to plant as we are under a freeze watch tonight.

Oh Char, that's good news!

More rain on the way, I guess that's why I'm still doing the "Fibro Drag". I did go to Zumba on Tuesday and today, but couldn't manage Drum Fit after Zumba today. I decided to listen to my body for a change. We've been to the gym only once this week for weight training because DH's seasonal allergies have made him feel lousy and tired. Hoping that Saturday will be better. Since rain is forecast for tomorrow, I think I'll check out some of the videos on Spark TV!

emoticon It is late, but I need to play catch up. My mother's day was lovely, too. We had a luncheon at church that the men of the church took care of. Then son and family came in the afternoon and blessed me with flowers and some other small gifts. Then, off to DD for supper. It was nice to see all of our little family!

DH and I have the bird houses done and I posted a picture of them on my blog. We will meet with the lady who is taking them with her Saturday for sale. Also, we decided to purchase a shed and get the porch cleared off so we could finish it. Looking forward to that!

Took some things in for scrap today. The yard needed to be cleaned up some. Glad to have that done. It was nice to be in the yard without cold wind and drizzle blowing in.

Have a great rest of the week, All!

Diane - sounds like you could have skipped the weight training with the hauling of rocks - lol - I bet it s going to look so nice. I washed my van on /Friday and then ran into a dust storm - kind of like washing windows and then it rains.

Char - its off to work for me as well. Michael and I are getting allergy testing done today - oh boy!

Hello team! Glad to see everyone had a nice Mother's Day!

Today DH was off so we went to the gym for weight training, came home and washed the living room screens and windows and hung "summer" curtains, then we worked on our raised garden borders (hauled and laid rocks) and put the solar lights in place. Of course rain is predicted tonight because I washed windows and put the solar lights out...never fails! Maybe the wind won't blow the rain against the front windows.

Still have my plants to do. We ran out of time and "steam" today.

Had a lovely mothers day - my mom baked a dump cake - we always enjoy that - , I brought steaks, my daughter Angela brought pasta salad, Rebecca brought fruit and cheese, Mylinda had bread and cheese, and Melissa brought vegetables to grill. That is what I love eating with my girls - we always have lots of fruit and veggies. And I came home with some beautiful plants. Plus came home to a beautiful plant that my hubby bought me.

Diane - I got my m om a load of mulch for Mothers Day and I got it spread - sure did spruce up her gardens. And today I will take her to my daughters with me.

Char - hope you got your flower gardens weeded - I pulled a few out of mine yesterday as well.

I need to hop into the shower and get this day going - it will be time to go before I know it.

Dot, have a great day tomorrow! Happy Mother's Day. The sun made an appearance today!! I have plants to put in tomorrow and/or Monday: some catnip, anise hyssop, white bleeding hearts. All gifted by some good gardening friends.

We bought my mom outdoor solar lights for Mother's Day (Yes, she actually wanted solar lights.) We'll get them set on Monday.

Today was weigh-in day, and I finally had a loss (hope I didn't imagine it).

Hi everyone!

Dot, don't you just hate having to start your day in a rush?

Char, best of luck with the surgery. I have a trigger finger too, so far haven't had too much trouble with it, but it's a weird thing to have...it's my ring finger, right hand.

Barb, happy to hear your hubby is doing well!

Went to Zumba and Drum Fit this morning and had to nap this afternoon emoticon I'll be so glad when this weather front is finished with us.

Hello! Still working on the bird houses. Have a couple of other things on the table to work on, too. DH went back to the Dr. to day to get his follow up check on his ear. Dr. says it looks good. He is taking some probiotic to get back on track since the antibiotic. I went for a trim while he was at the Dr.s.

Took two ticks off April this AM. Our older, outside dog is mully grumping around. I hope it isn't the results of ticks!

Have a great evening, Team!

Diane - hear you on the bat wings - I am working on getting rid of mine as well. I forgot all about kings corners - I use to belong to a card club. My mom plays cards regularly with her senior friends.

Barb - hope those birds show up soon. I love watching the birds in my trees but will not feed them because my cats love to catch them. Glad you had a good day with the grand daughters and your daughter.

Char - Monday is not my favorite day of the week either.

Time for me to get ready for work. I have guests staying at the camp for the next 2 days and when they leave I have guests coming for 4 nights.

Hi Team!

Barb, I love Sequence! When we lived in CA we'd get together with another couple once a week for dinner and then we'd play a board game: Sequence, Kings in the Corner, Mexican Train (dominoes), pinochle. I really miss that!

DH had off today so we did our weight training at the gym and took a few walks with Mollie. Met with a trainer at the gym and he added some free weight routines to my workout. I am getting rid of the "bat wings" or die trying!!

Zumba class tomorrow! And Drum Fit starts on Thursday!

Good morning, Team! Yesterday afternoon my DGD invited me to DD's for tea and cookie. I stayed and played some 'sequence' with them. Oldest DGD and my DD won most of the games. We, second twin and I, only won one. Oh, well, it was a nice time with family.

The rose breasted gross beaks are back this summer. There are four pair. They are so pretty!
The yellow finches are back, but I have not seen the purple finches or the orchard oriole yet. We should be working on the bird houses for the garden show next weekend.

Hope we see some sun this week. Have a great week, All!!!

Barb - if you enjoy crafting you will never be too old.

We had a nice day yesterday and my daughter and I got 2 yards of mulch put in her gardens, her gardens weeded and plants planted. I was one tiered mom on my drive home.

Today since it is going to be rainy will be a good day to clean out my closet, do some cooking and I will need to go clean the cabin.

Lots of rain today! DH found an attachment for his Allis and is thrilled!

A friend of mine called today and offered me some crafting items. She says she is not going to do crafting any more. Said she is old and just not doing any more (she is 73). I still have some things to make for the DGKs and still do some craft shows. Maybe when I get to 70, I will quit. It is getting harder to do with some of the physical drawbacks but I still enjoy doing it.

Church in the morning and hopefully some rest in the afternoon. This has been a busy week of traveling.

Have a Blessed Sunday, All!
