Cooler evenings, summer waning, insects chirping through the night
Days are shorter, nights are longer, but that is quite all right
To everything there is a season, a time for everything under the sun
A time for sowing, a time for reaping, the harvesting has begun!

Tea and unsalted peanuts for pre breakfast Perhaps protein shake for breakfast. Some errands to run. Sheetz is offering a free coffee through Sunday with the Sheetz card. Have a great day, All! Keep Sparking!

Quick stop to say "Hi" to all! Busy, busy week getting ready for trip. Car is working beautifully, we got the interior all clean and it looks so nice! Making lots of progress with my trips lists! Leaving Thursday am so I won't be online much except to track food, etc. (using my cell phone for that). Lot's of driving ahead, but at least this trip I'll be doing more driving to give DH more breaks. Got routes all planned, mapped w/directions, room reservations, all set! I'll pack tomorrow and do the laundry we dirtied since Saturday and tidy the family room.

Got the E-ZPass for all the toll roads. Now you can get them at retail stores! We got ours at the Giant supermarket. It's all registered and we just have to mount the transponder. Very easy to obtain and set up PLUS it's good in 14 states! SO happy not to have to worry about having enough cash ready for tolls!

Good Morning Char - you weekend sounds like mine. I mowed the line and then hung out my wash. Love that clean smell. Also got the spare bedroom under control and ran the sweeper. Wish I did have a 3 day weekend.

Char - hope you enjoyed supper with DIL and the grand dogs. I need to clean my house today - ugh - not looking forward to it.

I was in a golf scramble yesterday for work and had a really good day plus came home with a new gold shirt. Afterwards I went and got the back yard at our cabin mowed. It needs mowed some more but hubby can finish most of it with the rider - did all push mowing. Needless to say I was tired last night and can't believe it but I slept for 11 hours.

Diane - yea for warranty's - and yes you are blessed to have not had severe problems. We did break down one time on 79 outside of Pittsburgh. Hubby's brother had to come down and help hubby fix it. Scary. But nothing serious. It was beautiful here yesterday as well - I came home from work and finished working on my flower gardens and did not even break into a sweat - that was nice.

Barb - glad to hear that hubby is healing well. It will be nice when he is able to retire now that you have it all figured out! Dentists - ugh!

Golfing today in a work outing - should be fun!

Hooray for Drive Train Warranties! I'm going back to the dealership after dropping DH at work. Thank God, it's just a solenoid and they have the part in stock...PLUS it's covered by the warranty. By the time we get everything finished and the car inspected we'll have a new car...new tires, new engine, new brakes, transmission fixed and new shocks yet to be done. YIKES! We made it under the wire for the warranty with 97,800 some miles. emoticon

I feel blessed that we were never stranded on the Interstate or were in any physical danger due to the car problems. A good friend of mine and her entire family were hit head-on by a person who was driving and texting. Their car was totalled, and thank God, their injuries were not severe. When I see what others have been through with car problems, I can only thank God our troubles are just financial.

More to be thankful for: rain yesterday and less humidity today!!! We could open the windows and doors again and let the fresh air in.

Rain, rain, yesterday--lots of sun today! Off to bro's house for coffee with all the brothers.

Last financial meeting with advisor yesterday before retirement. It went well.

Also, took advantage of a free vein screening and Dr. wants to do a Doppler. He does not believe there are any problems, but I had some water retention and he wants to make sure. I am going to mention this to our PCP at my next apt and see what he says.

DH is suppose to go back to work next Thursday. He will be on light duty for two weeks.

Dentist apts at the end of August. Suppose to have the root canal done then.

Have a great weekend, Everybody!

Char - I am with you - I am counting the hours for the work day to be done and then let the weekend begin. Tomorrow is going to be busy - golf outing and graduation party. But Sunday is all mine!

Diane - I am hoping too it was covered. We have had to pay for transmissions before and it is no fun.

Picked some blueberries last night but the bugs were horrible!

Taking the car to a dealership today and praying that repair will be covered under 100k mile warranty.

It's sunny right now, but it's not going to last...lots of darkening skies out there when we took Mollie for a walk. Boy, it sure is humid, so I expect rain. The forecast for tomorrow looks worse with heavy rains, but we need the rain. Apparently this weather has made the poison ivy in the wooded area near our house grow like crazy. DH showed me all the plants, so I'm going to be sure to keep Mollie out of it so I don't get any plant oils that have rubbed off on her. I understand dogs are affected, but people can become infected with the rash from touching a dog that's been snuffling around in the poison ivy. I don't remember seeing so much of it in previous years.

Oh my, it's been a different two weeks. We got the new engine installed, then had the front brakes replaced. Still have 2 more problems to settle with the car... shocks and inspection and now have to get the transmission checked. It just never ends. I'm calling dealerships today to see about getting the transmission checked as we are having some "stuttering" at speeds between 30 and 35. Please, God, let this be covered under power train warranty!

I'm now worried about the car because despite 4 new tires and a new engine (good things), we will be driving to the Upper Peninsula in Michigan next week for a funeral. My sister-in-law, who was just diagnosed with brain cancer last month, died early this morning. The services are next weekend. Going to try to at least get the transmission looked at before we go.

The cloudy day seems to mirror my mood. No death is easy, even when you are told to expect it. Both my in-laws are in their 80's and I know they never imagined they would outlive 2 of their 9 children.

Dorothy -- So glad you had a good time and came home safely. We went the southern route to AZ twice and stayed on the Sonora desert for a few months in the late 90's. And, in all that time, we never got to see the Grand Canyon! Guess we will have to do that some time. Our cukes are coming on fairly well and DH helped me make some refrigerator pickles yesterday. Also, a friend's sweet corn is on and we had some yesterday and I froze about a quart. DH is absolutely thrilled with his bush tomatoes this year. They are producing very well.

Suppose to have lunch with friends who are coming over today. They are coming to check in on DH, who is doing very well. He painted the porch steps yesterday and they are still tacky. Wish he would have waited. Oh, well . . .

Have a great weekend, All!

Look out world, Char is on a "Roll"...teehee

Oh my goodness, it's too early for me and that's why I'm silly. I almost NEVER get up before 6:30am any more. Have to leave at 7 to take DH to work and I managed to not only get dressed but also have a load of towels in the washer already. Just have to wipe down kitchen and wash the floor today. I'm going to try to get 'er done before the day really heats up.

I think on Monday we're going to make Refrigerator Bread and Butter pickles. I don't want to go thru the canning sterilizing process and I'm not gonna make tons of pickles, so I found a recipe for doing them in the refrigerator. We will see how these turn out.

Diane - I do believe we took the northern route. We left Erie, PA and drove to Louisville, Kentucky - from there to Nashville, Tennessee, on to Oklahoma City, and then to Little Rock, Arkansas, on to Albuquerque, New Mexico, up to Carson City, Nevada and finally to Portland. And we did drive through Texas and California. With many stops in between. Oh we also stayed at the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. It was truly amazing. Nevada was my least favorite drive - through the desert although it did rain while driving and the temps dropped like crazy.

My cucumbers have done amazing this summer as have my zucchini. My peppers are coming along nicely and my potatoes are ready to dig up. Something is eating my cauliflower and broccoli. I am amazed that it would be a bunny as i have dogs and cats.

I love Fall as well but always hate seeing summer come to an end and to see winter approaching!

much to do today - playing catch up!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Dorothy, that's an amazing trip, isn't it? I'm guessing you did the Northern Route. We've driven across country 3 times, but never really took the "Southern" route which would have taken us through Texas (leaving/returning Southern CA). I remember crossing the Continental Divide after midnight one very cold October evening. It was so amazing! Unless you live away from the lights of civilization you can't begin to imagine how many stars are visible at night and how they appear close enough to pluck from the sky. It was an amazing experience. Driving thru KS, however...not my favorite.

The end of another summer week. Tomatoes are slowly ripening, and with the coming heat wave this weekend they should make good progress. Beans look like they're coming to an end (we only did one planting) and I'm still waiting for my lima beans. Cucumbers are coming nicely as well as peppers. Russian Kale is lovely. This is the first summer in a long, long time that I have really enjoyed. Autumn is my all-time favorite season so of course I'm looking forward to that!!! I love the way the air smells, the way the sunlight changes the appearance of the landscape, the crunch of fallen leaves...etc. Looking forward to walking a LOT this Fall!

Good Morning! emoticon Got a nice walk this morning with DH and Mollie. Will have to leave soon to take him to work, haircut scheduled for this afternoon. Lovely breeze this morning with low humidity. I'm enjoying this because the weekend will be another heat wave.

Good Morning!

DH has to be at work by 9 this morning, so I'm up early today. Still using my mom's car, but I decided to continue driving him to/from work so her car won't have to stay in the parking lot at work. I'd feel responsible if someone scratched or dinged it. Waiting to hear about arrival of new engine.

Char, I checked into Windows 10... thanks! I still have to see if I've reserved my copy; I haven't received any info yet but that could be because I'm running Vista on an older laptop.

Wow, it's actually cool this morning! It's awesome. Yesterday I made some Roasted Tomato Sauce with surplus tomatoes DH brought home from work. Someone at work brought a huge box of tomatoes from his garden and there were about 6 or more pounds left in the box on Tuesday night. He was going to throw them away! My DH said, "I'll take them!" Still have a few pounds left (made 1 qt. of sauce), and lots of fresh tomato recipes to try.

Barb, I'm glad to hear your DH is doing better!!

Yesterday afternoon we took a 30 minute walk, and tracked 1.75 miles; that was a 17 minute mile and I haven't been able to walk at that speed for several years (and that included inclines, as much of the neighborhood is hilly). I'm really proud of the progress I've made.

It has been a hectic couple of days. DH is still recovering, but drove this evening for the first time after surgery.

We had some GF pasta salad for lunch and some no nitrate/nitrite hot dogs -- also GF. Not quite enough fiber today and a little over on the fat. It has been different with DH home all the time and doing extra cooking. Not packing a lunch is OK, though.

Dr's apt is for next week for DH. The week after I am going for a free screening of the veins in my legs. Have never had that done.

Have a great night, All!

Char, how did you get Windows 10 for free? Interesting!

Lots of rain, thunder and lightning last night. At least we can open everything up again this morning. Weather is supposed to be less humid tomorrow. So far we've been fortunate to have enough rain. I can't believe we're into August already.

No good news on the car repair front...long story resulting in: we need a new motor. What color is despair????

Very warm again today, I think rain must be on the way because I had a fibro flare at 3am this morning. It's very cloudy now, hope rain holds off until after I get home from picking up DH at work. At least I can stay off the Interstate for most of the way and not have to contend with all the truck traffic.

Every notice how no good news comes on a Monday????

Char, I sympathize with your internet problems. We are having car problems yet again. Last night when we got into the car to take our grandkids back to their other set of grandparents (they only have 4 sets, poor things), the engine wouldn't turn over. Thankfully my ex lives in the same town as we do so he picked them up. DH tried changing all the fuses, but alas no luck. We had to have the car towed this morning to Firestone Complete Car Care shop (they are wonderful, by the way) and they'll look at it as soon as they can, but it may not be until Tuesday with all the end of month inspections. It appears to be an electrical system problem and I'm hoping it's on the simple side. Now all we need to do is figure a way for DH to get to work and home again over the next 3 days. He had to call off today and we hope he can take today as a vacation day.

Had a great time with the grandkids yesterday; they live in FL so we only get to see them about 2x a year. It was wonderful. We went to the American Indian Heritage Museum and we all learned how to use an Atlatl to throw a spear. The kids loved it...and so did we.

We were able to turn off the A/C today and open windows and doors! Yippee! I love having it when we need it, but am glad when we don't. It's warm today but there's a lovely breeze. As much as I hate humidity and excessive heat, I keep telling myself "don't complain! You don't have to shovel heat!"

Have a great weekend all.

Barb - glad to hear that hubby surgery went well.

It was hot hot hot here yesterday and I golfed probably during the hottest part of the day. But I played well!! So that makes me happy. Hoping for a much quieter day today. Allergy shot day!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Char - isn't that the way it always is - need a vacation day after a vacation - lol! I did not feel well at all yesterday and did not dare come home as I was filling in for my co-worker and it was the day to get all of the time cards turned in. But I survived and over slept this morning - lol!

Carol - I live in Warren County. Quite a way from Lancaster County i believe - about 4 hours? Welcome to our group.

Diane - isn't that the truth we think of it after the fact - lol!

Going to be a hot one for golf tonight but I will suffer through it - lol!

Hi Diane

New here and just read your post, whereabouts in PA as I live in the Lancaster area?

The picture of Mollie is beautiful. What kind a dog is she? Is she a spaniel? Don't have a dog, but have a cat that rules the house. Her name is Misty and she has both my husband and myself wrapped around her tail.

Wishing you an awesome day.

Char, why is it we always need another vacation when we return from one???

Dorothy, I had never seen a moth that size...or with those colors before! I was astounded. Mollie was so funny, she poked it with her nose but it didn't move and she just couldn't understand that! Now I wish I had put a hand next to the moth, or tried to get Mollie in the photo...I always think of the great ideas AFTER the fact. emoticon

Barb - always fun to find something that you have been looking for. i love buying books at garage sales. Will remember DH in my prayers.

Diane - very pretty - I did not know that moths could be so pretty.

Got the mowing done at camp yesterday and the place all cleaned up spic and span. Plus picked a few blueberries. Today is my last day of double duty at work - emoticon
