Char - sounds like you all had a real good time - including the puppies.

I am very tired and sore. I pushed lawn mowed for about 4 hours yesterday. Thank god hubby worked on the rider while i was pushing and finally got it fixed. Should be the last time I have to push mow the whole camp. I am going too try some yoga in a few minutes to see if it helps. not much going on today - Michael and i have dermatology appointments tomorrow.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

We were lucky and had no rain for the 4th. It was quite a pleasant day with a nice breeze. My mom, sister, niece and her 2 boys, and 2 of my neighbors came over for a picnic. Today it is off to camp to get the mowing day as it is going to be another rain free day.

Barb- hope the party was enjoyable despite the mud.

Char - i can identify with clean floors and wet dogs - ugh!


Diane - my dog hid beside me the whole time the fireworks were going off. And I was inside our house in a chair. They sure are sensitive creatures.

Dorothy, my arms, legs and back ache in sympathy for you today! Wow, you sure got a lot accomplished. That's how my DH and I are too, we work well together.

Been nice and quiet today (except for fireworks). Mollie is doing a bit better with the fireworks today, thank goodness. I'm just keeping calm around her, and when we go outside she's definitely on a lead! She is kind of sticking real close though!

We had rain last night and this morning, and it's looking threatening now, so maybe I should bring the flag in. I hope the rain holds off until DH is home from work, even if we can't barbeque.

Hope your 4th of July is full of thanks! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Rained from about 9PM until 6AM this morning. The park will be a mess! DH will probably not get to play horseshoes because of all the mud! He says we are going anyway. I suppose attendance will be down because of the weather. We may just have lunch, visit a little bit, then come home and not stay for supper.

Gotta get my beans going! Have a great day All!

Diane - hubby is helping a friend tear down a house today so he won't be around here either. My mom and sister are coming over and we will celebrate the 4th together.

Good luck on getting the favors done!

DD and I worked on putting in a patio yesterday and then DH and I emptied the truck of dirt and loaded it full of flooring. Can I say i was tired last night!

Dorothy, DH works from 9:30-6:30 tomorrow, so it's just like another work day...and he'll be home in time to barbeque something...probably burgers...IF it isn't raining. For the sake of everyone with outdoor plans tomorrow, I'm hoping for a nice day. On Sunday afternoon I'm helping my friend do favors for a wedding she's attending next week. She volunteered to do them, and then found out we need to do 150 of them. It'll be fun and there should be 3 of us there to get them done.

Char - I love taking the dogs to the dog wash - It costs $5.00 but can get both dogs done. Problem is my one dog hates it and it is a struggle getting him inside.

Diane - sorry you are going to be alone for the next few days but think of all the things you can get done or just relax emoticon I had to have tires put on van at the beginning of winter and I am sure I am going to need breaks. Vehicles are so expensive.

Barb - sounds like lots of festivities going on your way - enjoy. I wear a hat when I am mowing, doing yard work, or golfing - it helps to keep the bugs out of my ears and eyes - ugh!

Headed to my daughters in Erie today to work on a patio and fire pit.

emoticon It has been a few hectic days. Tuesday and Wednesday we were busy from early morning until about 10 at night with errands and company and stuff! Monday we took the twins shopping and then went to visit some friends. The wife has been diagnosed with lymphoma. She found out yesterday it is a slow growing kind and is going for a scan on Monday to see how far it has spread. We finally get to rest at home this evening. emoticon

DH found out yesterday that he has two hernias. He is going to be scheduled to have the large one taken care of in about two weeks. He will probably be off work for about four to six weeks unless they send him back on light duty. Dr. said the mess fixing has a rate of about .025 % of not working. That is a pretty good record and this surgeon has done hernia surgeries for my son and two of my brothers over the years. In our area, most people get sent to him. Still, God is the one we must put our trust in. He is the Great Physician!

On Saturday, we are supposed to go to a family reunion. Hope the rain holds off until at least afternoon. DH loves to play horseshoes, but it may not be nice enough for that. I don't like being in the park in the rain. Too many bugs! A friend got bitten while there recently and the results were not good. She got re-infected with Lyme's Disease. Oh, bother! I am planning to take some baked beans and maybe a GF dessert. Not sure about that yet.

Have a good night, ALL!!!

Char and Dorothy we had a rude awakening at Firestone today. emoticon Not with the service, that's for sure! The people there are awesome; the new front tires were mounted within the promised hour, and that was terrific. HOWEVER...our car is a 2011 Chevy HHR. Guess what? All the original parts are wearing out at the same time! We need to replace the rear tires and get new brake pads (the tires are about 2 years old, and we've put a LOT of mileage on the vehicle since we got them). We also need a few other things to pass inspection...long story short, it's more extensive debt than we'd anticipated. Next Monday we'll have 2 new rear tires put on and the alignment done. Then, over the next few weeks we continue the car saga. Nothing lasts forever, and it's either service the car or...well, there IS no viable option at this time. THAT's why we have only ONE vehicle. These are all items that wear out, it's no surprise except that it all sort of went at one time. The engine is good, we get GREAT gas mileage, the body is in good condition. We like the car, it's just that these things never occur at a good time. (Besides, we're still making payments on the car itself). Oh well, one day at a time! No sense stressing over what HAS to be done.

Char, I really hope the weather is nice for your gathering on Saturday! It's summer in PA, so you know there's almost always a shower lurking nearby. DH works the rest of this week after having 3 days off, so I'm feeling lonely today (he's working closing shift today and Friday). I think we wore Mollie out, 'cause she's been napping in "her" chair all day. I'm doing laundry...oh! the excitement.

Thanks for the info Diane - very interesting. 2 of my daughters have rescue dogs and my other daughter has 2 rescue cats. Our original lab I had to put done - his hips gave out on him and he was just very old. But like you it was the saddest thing I ever had to do. We still have 2 labs and do not know what I will do when we have to put them down. It is just so traumatic.

Barb - hope all goes well in getting hubby ready for surgery.

Char- my hubby needs a new truck as well but just hate to go further into debt.

Busy 4 days off are coming up and I will be ont he move constantly - I really would like one lazy weekend!!

Dorothy, when we rescued our Golden (we named her Tanith), she was older than they thought she was. She was rescued from a puppy mill situation and had been bred practically to death. She was undernourished and when initially found by the people who rescue Goldens in CA she was one hot mess. She was fostered for awhile by a wonderful woman who, along with her Golden, had to "teach" Tanith how to be a dog. We had her for 4 blessed years. After we moved from CA to PA she started to go downhill, and one day we had to carry her outside to potty. We took her to the vet immediately, but there was nothing that we could do. The doctor thought her spleen had ruptured, she was bleeding internally, so we had to make THE decision. Most difficult decision EVER, but we were with her through the end. I was a total basket case. Even now, just remembering that day brings all the pain and tears back. We saved her, and she saved us...she was a truly amazing dog.

I get very emotional over our pets whether they're guinea pigs or dogs...I like to think they're waiting for me.

What we know as the Irish Setter (beautiful shades of red) actually came from the Red and Whites. The white was bred out of them over time and they are actually a bit larger than the Red and Whites. After WWII breeders wanted to breed more of the Red and Whites as their number had really dwindled. They are great bird dogs, and their popularity continues to grow. They're good with other dogs, kids, make great pets and those that enjoy it excel in the show ring. They can be very stubborn, and they're very intelligent; you have to let them know who the Alpha is in your pack or they'll try to run YOU. Mollie is very much like her mama in temperament. Her mama's name is Rylee and she is the Alpha of the pack that lives with the breeder...in fact, they had to relocate one of the other females as Abigale and Rylee didn't get on. When Mollie visits with her pack she tries to act Alpha until Rylee puts her in her place emoticon

Most Red and Whites stand about 2' high, the males are a bit larger. Here's link if you want to read about them: dogtime.com/dog-breeds/irish-red-and

DH is off today to go see a surgeon about a hernia. We will do some shopping, too. Bible study last night and women's meeting tonight. Had visitors yesterday that have not been here for years. We did a little bit of catching up. The wife has recently been diagnosed with lymphoma and is off to see the oncologist today.

Have not seen the bear any more, but it seems to be around. Folks saw one over their way -- maybe the same one -- on Monday night. They live about four miles away.

Well, need to get breakfast, take care of the dog, and get going! Have a great day!!!

Diane - I am afraid to ask how your dog went over the rainbow falls. I have always love Irish setters - are the white ones a smaller version? On of my daughters has a English bulldog - he is cute as a bug. My other daughters has a golden lab and a mini cocker spaniel.

Suppose to golf today but they are calling for thunder storms.

Char, Mollie is an Irish Red and White Setter. We had a Golden rescue and when she went over the Rainbow Bridge it took more than 6 months to get to the point where I wanted another dog. Since my husband is a hunter, he wanted a bird dog. We did months of research on breeds, etc. and one day I read about the IRWS breed (I wanted a dog smaller than our Golden) and I asked him if that would be a good breed. He had already considered it, and we found a woman who bred IRWS and lived about 20 miles away. When you're training a dog for hunting, it's best to have one not previously trained by someone else. We researched the breeder and then he started an email correspondence with her. When Mollie's dam was pregnant one of the prospective owners changed their mind so we got a puppy from that litter. Mollie is now 4, and we cannot imagine life without her! She loves to hunt, but after just 2 experiences, she hates the show ring. She's like her mama...doesn't like all the handling done inside a ring. Our breeder now has 12 IRWS, and she's bred at least 6 of those. The breed is becoming more popular in this country, and all the dogs she owns have their AKC Championships. In fact, Mollie's sire is the #3 IRWS in the country. He was #1 for awhile until 2 of his children surpassed him (they're both half-siblings to Mollie).

I have some photos of her on my page. We love dogs, and I'd take rescues if we had the room.

Dorothy, Labs are so sweet! Every one I ever met is a delight...plus, they're great hunters too! Isn't it funny how some dogs who are "supposed" to be water dogs hate it? Every dog is a unique individual even when they share a lot of traits. The IRWS breed is infamous for "pawing" you when they want attention. Drives me crazy sometime, because they're really insistent when they want attention. I've done puppy sitting for our breeder, and they ALL do it! I'll tell you what, taking care of a housefull of dogs is exhausting! I don't know how she does it with 12 IRWS and 2 hunting terriers! But it sure is fun when there are puppies! We always get to help socialize the new puppies before they go to their forever homes. I love it.

Char - I have 2 labs - one black and one brown. The brown one loves water but not the black one - lol! My previous wonderful black lab also loved the water and if there was water near by you can bet he was in it. My brown one is alot like that. They really are good dogs but my black one needs to mark everything outside.

Short week for me as well and I am sure the weekend is going to be busy!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Diane - enjoy your hubbys time off. We had rain all day yesterday and today as well.

Char - there were only 2 vendors at the market because of the weather so I bought some fresh dill - thats it. there will be no market next weekend because it falls on the 4th but it will be back bigger the following weekend.

Had a good time in Buffalo and now just trying to get caught up around here.

Char, one of my very favorite things about living in CA was the year-round farmer's markets! We lived in Ventura County and it's a huge agricultural region, there is ALWAYS something growing! I got SO spoiled have such easy access to farm fresh produce and fresh-caught seafood. Wish it wasn't so expensive to live there, I'd move back!

We had lots of rain yesterday...pretty steady all day so it was good for the garden. Today is still overcast so who knows what will come. At least the temp is down and the humidity is actually bearable.

DH is off tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday! Hoping there's time for fishing in there somewhere. Also, Miss Mollie could use a bath, and she's a bit much for me to do by myself, although I have given her "bucket baths". She's decidedly underwhelmed by baths.

Dorothy, I am making slow progress in the family room, but it IS progress emoticon

The Summer 5% Challenge started yesterday and our team is off to a wonderful start. It's going to be a fun 8 weeks.

Barb, Char and Dorothy I hope the rain doesn't "dampen" your fun today! Here's my advice, passed from my Dad to me to you: "Run between the drops" emoticon

I changed/added goals to my Start Page Goal Board. I do review them daily and I decided to freshen things a bit. I was happy to be able to add some completed goals! My 2 biggest accomplished goals was losing 41.5 pounds since Feb. 4 and lowering my A1C from 8 to 5.8. My next "big" weight loss goal is to lose 50 pounds by Christmas, so that's on the board too. (It sounds scary, so although it's long-term, I'll take it 5% at a time!)

Today is the first day of the Summer 5% Challenge, and I'm ready to start this next phase. We've been getting things in place for our team (I'm an EL on the Champions in the Kitchen), we have games and contests already in play. The prep for this Challenge has been a lot of fun.

Dee - way to go on the plan - it really helps to have one in place.

Barb - enjoy the birthday lunch with your DGD. I am going to watch my oldest DGD in her dance recital tonight.

Char - hope you enjoy your day. Hope you and DD enjoy the graduation party,

I really want to go to the Farmers Market today - hope the rain hold off a little longer - we are really suppose to get hammered - stay safe and dry.

Char, you're a great motivator!! emoticon

I just finished my (intentional) exercise for the day. The humidity is building. When I had the dog out about an hour ago the sky had threatening clouds. I think heavy rains are predicted for this evening.

I'm glad DH as day shifts tomorrow and Sunday; my schedule gets all out of whack when he closes. I did spend a lot of time today doing postings, etc. for my Team in the summer challenge. It's been a lot of fun already! I'm looking forward to it. I already reached (actually exceeded) my 2-1/2% weight loss goal for the "InBetween Challenge", so I am happy to keep on going! I sat down to do some research to see what my ultimate weight range should be. It's been so long since I've been in that range! I think it was 1997! I started taking body measurements last week. I figured I'll need some good news to keep me going when the weight loss slows or I hit a plateau. At least then I will be able to concentrate on toning. For once in my life I have a long-range plan for weight normalcy.

Starting the Summer challenge tomorrow! Hoping to do better in this one! With picnics and family gatherings this summer, I will have to be on my guard.

Planning to take youngest DGD with me on Sunday to our church and take her to lunch after. Her birthday is next week and wanted to spend some one on one time with her. There is a small restaurant close to the church that make great French fries and she really likes them there. DH likes their burgers. Don't know what they have that I might like. We'll see.

Flood warnings are up in PA. You all be careful out there, Hear?

Char - thanks for all of the enthusiasm. I am not sure either how far apart we are - I will have to check it out. Way to go on starting your morning so well.

Diane - your guardian angel was certainly with you. Glad it all turned out well.

Taking off half a day to mow as the next two days re suppose to rain. Tomorrow they are calling for 100% chance of rain with high winds and possible flooding - sounds wonderful. And I am suppose to drive to Buffalo for DGD's dance recital.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Well, today started out just fine...got up at 8:30, had breakfast and then we went to get another tomato plant to replace one that didn't do well. On the way home (about 2 miles from home) the right front tire went flat. Thank God it didn't happen when DH was driving to work on I-78, AND we were right in front of our church! We pulled into the parking lot and DH started to change tire when the tool to remove the bolts (very cheap tool) got bent. I called roadside assistance, and after 1 hour we were able to get home. He'll miss about 1-1/2 hr. of work, but he called off so they knew he'd be late. (sigh) He may be able to make up some of the lost time over the next few days. I was supposed to go to lunch w/my best friend, but we cancelled and will do it sometime next week. Now we have to buy 2 new tires, yuk! The 2 front tires were running on borrowed rubber...my DH said they were the originals and it's a 2011 Chevy HHR, so we are lucky to have gotten the wear we did. Guardian angels certainly exist! Couldn't have picked a better location for the tire to go flat. I hope the rest of day is less stressful.

Oh Dorothy, what a tragic accident! The storms all across the country have been so severe!

Char, you're not that far from me! We live in Macungie (a small town in the Lehigh Valley, not far from Allentown). I think I'm the old lady in the group (66), but I'm SO much younger in my mind emoticon . Finally after losing weight and regular exercise I'm starting to feel younger too, instead of like a 90 year old!

Today is so beautiful! There is a lovely breeze coming through the patio door and taking Mollie for a walk this morning was so pleasant! I wish I could bottle this weather and use it for the entire summer!!

Barb, let us know how your excursion with your GDs went! Find any "gems"?

Good Morning, All! Couldn't have little celebration for Pastor last night. There was a death in his family. Rescheduled for next Tuesday night. Still planning to see DGS play ball tonight. It is not suppose to rain here today so the game is on!!!

DD ask me if I wanted to go bent and denting with her family today. Think I shall. Need a few things and I get to spend time with the DGDs--if they decide to go. They are teenagers now and pick and choose where and when they want to tag along.

TV reception has been awful through all the storms. The three 3's and three 6's are back, May have to fiddle with the antenna to get ten back. We'll see. Have to be cautious with the trash since the bear is wondering around.

Have a great day!!!

Char - you are a great motivator - thanks for joining our group.

Barb - i ran into a bear one time when I was delivering papers - once was good enough for me. They are always in peoples back yards that live near woods. My boss has one frequently. And I know they are around camp.

Diane - i have a temp one on right now - crown that is but i like it better than my broken one emoticon We had so powerful thunderstorms go through here yesterday morning - unfortunately a tree fell on a ten with some kids camping in it and one was killed - so very sad.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Dorothy, hope your new crown has lots of sparkle! emoticon Seriously, hope it all goes well. I need to find a new dentist and make an appointment...I keep putting it off.

Barb and Char, so far no bear sightings here...lots of other "wildlife". Actually there was something in the paper the other day about a bear sighting in downtown Allentown! Downtown Allentown??? Too weird! I think the paper said it was seen at 8th and Walnut. Can't imagine where it came from. I don't need to see bears locally (unless they're teddy bears).

It's sunny, humid and HOT today. Rain predicted sometime today.

We did go fishing yesterday; some nibbles but no "bites"...doesn't matter, because it was really nice. Even though it was very warm and humid, we were under a stand of pines at the lake and it was really pleasant. Set up our chairs and just relaxed! (Needless to say Mollie was NOT with us. She was not happy with us; we gave platelets yesterday so we were gone for several hours, then came home for about 2 hours and left to go fishing. She was very upset to be left at home in the cool a/c! She just doesn't get that dogs don't go fishing!

emoticon Well, the bear is showing up here! My SIL asked us if we saw it yet when we saw her on Friday night. I told her 'no', but the dogs have been doing a lot of barking as of late. DH was in the yard yesterday and little April went barking and flying down the driveway and there it was -- a bear that came down our hillside and crossed the road and went to the creek on the bottom. It stopped to look at April, then moved on! Early this AM the dogs were making a fuss again and DH assumed it was coming back to the hill. SIL lives about a quarter of a mile away and I don't know how many times they have seen it.

I was at the dentist's yesterday and he is scheduling me for a root canal. It is a front tooth, so we will try that first. Also, have a chipped tooth he is going to fix. Not crazy about the news, but our insurance should cover it, or a least most of it.

We watched our DGD play ball last night. Tonight is a gathering for our Pastor's birthday. Wednesday night our DGS is in a playoff game and Thursday DGD is playing again. Is it any wonder DH is taking a vacation day Friday? No, actually, he has to use it or lose it.

Have a great day, All!

Char - thats funny - it was beautiful all day yesterday and rained here last night. But now they are calling for rain off and on all day today. But I do agree - it should rain all night and be nice all day!! Your routine sounds like mine - get up - feed the dogs, exercise and get ready for work!

Diane - sounds ;like an awesome day - hope you enjoyed your fishing. It was hot here as well yesterday - a little too hot. I like it in the mid 70's. Luckily there was a breeze.

Going to the dentist today to see about getting a new crown. emoticon

Woooeee, summer is really here! Hot and humid, going to have heat index of 100+ degrees tomorrow. Thank you God for A/C!

Had breakfast with my classmates this morning, came home got dinner in the crockpot (Salsa Chicken), then we went to give platelets. Home now, little lunch and we're off to go fishing!

Carrie - what part of PA are you from. I am in Warren and it did not get humid here yesterday.

Diane - sorry you did not get much sleep - hope you slept better last night.

I mowed up to camp for 3 hours last night and then at home for another 20 minutes - I was whooped yesterday. Not much going on today - back to work.

Very warm today! Ran some errands; not up to much because last night was NOT a good night for sleeping. We did have lots of rain, and that was good. Busy day tomorrow, looking forward to it!

Hi all!

I'm sweating my way through the day, and it's still early! I went out for a run earlier and it was already crazy humid. It will be nice to sit in my house and relax after church!

Hoping to get the mowing done up at camp today - it is going to be wet mowing but it needs to be done. Other than that no big plans. Had a good day at the picnic with my granddaughters. They rod the tilt a whirl for an hour. WE eventually made it to the water park but it never got above 70 so I never ventured into the water.

Before heading to the picnic I managed to get grocery shopping done and the downstairs dusted and sweeper run but there is so much decluttering that needs to be done.

I do beleieve we have had rain every day so far in June!

Sounds like everyone has a busy Saturday. Dorothy, I'm getting the family room straightened, little by little in between other chores. This room seems to get done last. Yesterday cleaned the bedroom and organized some of DH's clutter so at least now he knows what he's been collecting on his dresser for a long time. emoticon I did ask permission to go thru everything and organize it and he readily agreed (because he really doesn't like to organize and love it). It will be nice to have him off work tomorrow and Monday! Monday I have breakfast with a group of "girls" I graduated with, DH and I are scheduled to give platelets in the early afternoon and then I hope we'll get out fishing. Rain is predicted for tomorrow, so we'll just have to see what the weather brings us.

Despite the fact that I hate heat and humidity, so far I'm having a great Spring...due to losing weight and exercising thanks to the Spring Challenge! Best thing I could have done!

Hello Folks! Suppose to have just a few remnants of showers here today. Planning to go 'yard shopping' with my DH. He is off on an excursion now, but should be back soon.

Invited to DD's for lunch with two other ladies from our old church. Hoping to get back in time.

DH took a vacation day yesterday and I went to chiro for my back and neck. Seems to be getting better. On the way back we stopped at a yard sale and picked up a few things. We stopped at a different one on the way out. Picked up some things to make Christmas decos and stuff for the family Christmas party this year. Gotta plan early to get it done. Have asked for the twins help. Not in this muggy weather, though. Do not have AC hooked up yet and when we get out from under the fan, it is sweltering!

Have a great weekend, All!

Diane - we don't actually have any customers who want them inside the front door but we do have them that one them between the screen and front door. i did have on confrontation with a dog - scared me and one with a bear. i had a lot of really good customers though and they were very generous tippers. And i really miss my morning walk - but mot those inserts. You are right - they are crazy.

Company picnic today - yea. Meeting 2 of my daughters and 2 of my grandchildren and son is bringing a friend. Should be a good day is the rain holds off!
