Oh Ginna, I am so sorry about your left arm.

My right elbow is supposed to be on a week's rest. Imagine not using my right elbow when I''m right handed. If the rest doesn't work Doc will give me an injection after this week of rest. I have arthritis in both thumb joints where they connect to my hand. I just hate to know it's now in my elbow. It's been bothering me for over a month, so I'll have to retrain myself to get past this.

Hugs for all of you

Good morning Team! Thank you so much for the warm welcome, Jean and Jane. Really am glad to "see" Jane back again. I've thought of you and Bill through these years since out meeting at Mackinac. Hard to believe it's been years, but the time does fly by.

Of course, I'm delighted to see Jean again as well. We have lots of connections. I can see that Jean is also as busy as ever. We really need to catch up with you ladies in getting holiday decorations in place.

I hope I'll know Gwyn better in a short time. I do remember enjoying her posts before leaving for a number of months.

Congrats on your new phones Jane and Bill. I would like to get Dan a phone again. I like to be able to be in touch, but he's difficult to motivate. I'm thinking of just giving him one as a Christmas gift, but I'd hate to see him not using the gift. IsvBill enjoying his Smartphone, Jane?

I have to get ready to go to Physical Therapy now. I messed up my left arm in August and I'm paying the price for a bad golf swing now.
See you all later, Ginna.

Ginna from Georgia

All is well here. We dipped to 40 overnight, but the sun is bright and it's warming up to high 60's.

Nose still running, but cold is gone. Feeling so much better.

Sleep is not easy. Wish I could just close my eyes and drift away. Doesn't work so much anymore. Last night I closed my iPad on a novel, and went to bed at 9:30 bc Joe turns in around 8:30-9:00. I was still awake even though calm at 1:00AM So I got up, drank some chamomile tea, moved some more Christmas decorations around the house, and read a couple more chapters. That time sleep did come. Woke up around 6:00, too early. Closed my eyes and woke up at 8:00.

I wasn't upset last night, just couldn't sleep. Maddening.

Stay active. Keep smiling.

Hi Ginna!! It's me, back into the fold. Glad to see you back too!
Another busy day for me. Walked on the treadmill and went to nursing home. Yesterday we got new cell phones; Bill finally upgraded from a flip phone to a smart phone. It was time for me to upgrade as well. Bill got a Samsung 7 and I got a 7Edge. I was having trouble with the Otter Box not fitting correctly so had to make another trip to Verizon to get another cover. This one is hot pink so hopefully I won't lose it! This afternoon I had to catch up on some GFWC paperwork and make a quick trip to the Museum. The Arkansas Waterfowler Hall of Fame will soon be housed at our museum! Very exciting! Here's the info if you would like to read about the event we will attend tomorrow evening in Little Rock.

Welcome back, dear friend. I hope to see you posting more and more.

My next door neighbor told us yesterday that he has secured a 6 month contract to teach history 45 minutes away, and may move in that direction this summer if indeed they come through with a permanent contract. Neighbor has been subbing in that school for a couple of years already so he does what's expected of him. Sad!! He's the darling man who blows off our roof, clips the ground cover, and just looks after our place doing all the things he doesn't feel my Joe is young enough to handle anymore. Such a caring man. Ho boy! Will I ever miss him. He doesn't want to be paid, but Joe insists every now and then that he accept $50. He does so grudgingly because he understands it's a "Man thing"

I feel your sadness at losing a wonderful neighbor.

Good morning Team! Tried to get caught up with team's activities. I'm back in GA after a northern summer. Happy to be home. Some neighborhood changes - hard to accept. Neighbors of 39 years sold and moved to FL. Really miss our Friday dinners out and Euchre games.
Trying to figure out if Jackson is the Jane on this group a number of years ago. Glad to see Jean and Gwyn - familiar ladies. Hope I can come back.

I understand. Any collection that is not ours personally becomes a bit much. Giggles.

My DH stays out of my sewing room bc I have so much material, tools, sewing machines, thread, etc. All the things that make my heart sing. My knitting stash is not so out of control at this point. I do have plastic containers of yarn, and finished projects that can become gifts. He has fussed about not having any more walls in this house to hang quilts. I've switched to making table accessories, and even a quilted ottoman. All fun. But I bought kits to make even more wall quilts this year. Oh, well.

It was so good to feel better. Yes, I did do a lot yesterday, but am OK today.

My right arm is sore, but that's bc I had to scrub really hard on an old vinegar stain in the bottom of a wooden drawer. What a disappointment. The spigot of the fancy vinegar bottle must've gotten broken off months and months ago. The stain underneath that bottle was black and thick. I used Brillo pad to remove as much of it as I could. Got the smell out, too. My right arm has been tender for a while. Must've lifted a few heavy things. I'll talk to the doctor about it this morning.

Still nice warm weather here. Rain moved up to 11:15 now, so I'll catch it coming out of doctor's office.

I walked this morning and got 7,000 steps in so far. That's acceptable.

That's lovely!

I see my doctor for my normal check-up tomorrow. Really like my MD. He's Joe's doctor also.

Very warm here today. All is well.

I walked the mall for a while with a friend from church. She has serious open heart surgery this summer and is slowly recuperating.

When I returned home I continued with the laundry, wet mopped the tile floors, shook out area rugs, swept the front deck, and unloaded the dishwasher. I'm relaxing now with a sandwich and fruit juice.

Haven't hit my 10,000 steps yet. I will though.

Since we ate our family feast away from home, I missed having left-overs. My turkey is still thawing in the fridge from Saturday. I think I can roast it tomorrow. Looking forward to leftovers. I have a pumpkin pie in the freezer, too.

Joe is taking a nap in the chair where he was reading. Bless his heart.

Walking finished. I managed to finish before the hard rain started. Now I'm home, cooling down and drinking water. I made a couple of cyber Monday purchases and am trying to convince myself to get up and finish decorating. Ha! Hop you have a wonderful day!

Hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. My MIL was here and made it home safely to San Angelo. She will return just before Christmas. I have my tree up and decorated. Today I worked on my village. All is up that is going up! The rest will have to wait another year. Tomorrow I shall get all the little people and vehicles out and place them around in the village. I need to finish my shopping and wrapping. Hope to take a couple of days next week to go to Hot Springs and walk Garven Gardens, a beautiful Christmas display. Tomorrow we are in for some rain. Hope you all have a successful spark week!

I finished knitting my blue silk scarf tonight. It needs to be blocked, but the knitting and sewing in ends is complete. Feels good to have it done. I bought the yard at quilt festival and promised myself I would not just put it away in my yarn storage. Promise kept. I have several lovely skeins of yarn in there, and need to tackle projects one at a time.

Lovely day here Low 79's. My neighbor returns home tomorrow. I have kept the wild geese, birds, and cat fed -- all outdoor critters. I feel good about taking on her little creatures. They mean a great deal to her.

Thanksgiving and autumn decor is still up here. I plan to start switching over to Christmas holiday things soon. I'm feeling better today. I even walked a little bit in the mall and went grocery shopping for a few items. I managed 13,000 steps today -- a vast improvement over my past week.

Hope you're doing what you can to be active and eat healthy.

Busy morning. Walked two miles, went to nursing home to make sure Mother got dressed, then home to shower and dress myself, then back to nursing home for the Thanksgiving dinner given for residents and families. Now I'm taking a break! Hope you all have a good day!

So sorry, Gwynn.
Hope things improve for you at work. Keep your chin up and do your best.

I fed a neighbor's cat, the wild geese (who are nesting near her home), and checked her bird feeder. Then I cleaned out the pool's leaf catcher. Good things to start my day and make me feel good.

Spread kindness today.

Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels for all who will hit the road.

Gwynn, hope all goes well for you.

Finished my treadmill walking. Repairman called and is supposed to come by around noon to check out the oven. It was in the house when we bought it 8 years ago so the part may not be available to repair it. We have made to prepare Thanksgiving using the microwaves, cooktop and crockpots. Should be interesting! lol

Do your best always. Sorry for your anxiety.

I'm still not whole yet. Laying low and not mall walking . Sniffles are somewhat better. Laryngitis is healing. Looking for energy still.

Time to get Kiwi out for his constitutional.

Make good choices today. Spread kindness.

Cute pillow and purse, Jean!
Today started out with the bottom burner in my oven arcing! And it's two days before Thanksgiving cooking. Hope the part comes in tomorrow. Then I turned on my computer and it made a horrible noise. Quickly logged off and gave it a good dusting with the compressed air. When it came back on, I backed it up on my Click it. Still working ok. Then.... we had to make a trip to Little Rock Social Security to get a last minute problem resolved. I'm pooped. I did however get my 2 miles in between the oven and computer fiascos. Here's hoping for a more serene Tuesday.

Finished my turkey pillow. I bought the laser cut turkey pieces in a kit at the quilt festival, and decided to create a pillow from my fabric stash. I'm happy with the result, and pleased to have it complete before Thanksgiving.

A couple of years ago I knit a red wool purse and felted it. This year I added a knit faux fur band to "Santa" it up and make it festive for the holidays. The white band is removable, so I can take it off after the holidays.

We slept in this morning. Guess I'll keep my cold at home. No sense sharing these nasty germs with the whole congregation. It's 37F here. Quite cold.

I'm bundled up and eating my oatmeal with raisins, Craisins, cinnamon and sugar. I took CoricidinBP pills this morning. Hope I start getting better. No mall walking for now.

Take care of yourselves.

No mall walking today. I need to kick this laryngitis. Feeling drained.

My low boots were repaired on time, and turned out great. So very pleased.

Walking done and cooling down before showering and getting some things done today. Rain should be here by noon then the cool down follows. I'm so tired of 80 degree weather in November! Looks like we may get to crank up the fireplace this weekend! Have a great weekend!

Laryngitis. Oh, well

Still walked the mall. Took low boots to shoe repair. Needed new heel rubber pads, and toe pad replacements. Love those boots and they are so soft and comfy. Probably on their end days.

Grocery shopped.

Went to Girlfriend Sew tonight and put the turkey appliqué on grey fabric for a pillow. Turned out festive.

Time for bed now. Hope tomorrow is a good day for you.

went shopping today and was so tired that I fell asleep and we ended up not going to gym. then I realized one of the items I wanted to pick-up was forgotten. I did buy some chicken caesar salads and we had those for dinner.

Out, out brief candle....one of the only Shakespeare speeches I memorized in high school...full of sound and fury but signifying nothing.

Busy day for you. Way to go.

Teaching was fun.

I baked pork chops with a thin slice of onion and stuffing over them, plus potatoes and carrots surrounding them in a pretty oven dish. Tasty dinner, and fairly easy.

Time to relax a bit.

I have heard that WalMart goes into smaller towns and it is usually the only choice to shop at. I like giving smaller businesses the money -- and I do grocery shopping at larger, locally owned grocery stores

My goodness! Wal-Mart is only one of two places in my town to shop for groceries. It's not my favorite place (husband ususally goes) but I do shop the other store occasionally. The people of that store are not local to my town. At least Wal-Mart is local to Arkansas and is a big employer here. To each his own....

I got my 2 miles in at the gym today. Then I came home and started working of my GFWC membership lists. I'm about half way finished. I need to get it completed before they need mailing addresses for the state newsletter later this week. Tomorrow I have a dental appointment out of town so it will be a busy day as well.

Agreed thieves can get around any system. I do shop Sam's for large quantities, and check them out for household items, but probably do not shop there more than 6-7 times a year. My daughter has a business and bought herself a business membership, and put me on as her additional person, so my membership is a gift.

I shop small businesses for my yarn and quilt fabric, and love getting both at the International Quilt Festival which is small businesses from around the globe. Exciting stuff. I also have favorite local shops for both yarn and fabric. Clothes I buy on line or while we are traveling. I do look in the mall, but usually am finished with my walk before the stores open. I don't have a set pattern of shopping. And at this point in my life don't have staggering needs. I don't consider myself a shopper.

i have a friend who never shops Walmart. I think it is because she like to support local business. she can afford to shop in smaller business. I love Walmart but I do not shop sam's club. the reason is because of them checking your receipt at the door. I hate that and I have had a few walmarts do it which I no longer go to. i'm tired from shopping and waiting in line to check out so do not feel like standing in another line plus I feel like any thieves that got through the checkout line will not get caught at the door so a waste of time.

Our oldest son manages electronics in a nearby WalMart, one grand daughter is a pharmacy assistant in another Walmart in Texas, and our oldest grandson in Michigan manages the pet department in a Walmart there. We don't shop Walmart for groceries, but we shop there periodically for many different things. We also have certain businesses that we will not shop in for various reasons, so I understand boycotting.

Teaching today, ad looking forward to a grand day.

Spent two very productive hours in the sewing room. First I looked for a purse pattern, but found I threw out 98% of my patterns this past year, so no purse pattern. Yikes! When I started going through books, and pamphlets, I realized I needed to organize my files, and shelves. It was a huge undertaking, but I did it. Of course I found things I forgot I owned. Always nice.

So, yes, I do have two books of purse ideas with patterns and suggestions. Yeah, me! But as I sorted through the rest of the patterns, books and magazines, I decided I need to just think about my choices a bit, and not rush to get something done haphazardly. I have some Christmas fabric I'd love to use, but once I sorted through all my books and patterns, I need to think. Imagine that.

Got my steps in, and dinner is over. Church was lovely and it's been a grand day.

Sending hugs to all of you.

Gym closed on Sunday so I went straight to the nursing home to see Mother. Then to Wal-Mart for some flatbread, Christmas (!) prizes for a party and other things. Lunch, then laundry now. My mother-in-law will be here next Sunday so I'm busy getting her room in shape. Hope to take the dogs for a walk later.

Great day! Got a 1+ mile in this morning. Then sister and another friend went to an open house in another town then home for a giant christmas "flea-market" type of event. Bought a few presents. We had lunch and I was tempted to have one the the big burgers, but had a terrific grilled chicken salad. Glad to be home and put my feet up.lol

good news at weigh-in. i might need to put my goal at 270 at this rate but won't be surprised if I hit a bump or two over the holidays especially while boys are home.

good and bad. while shopping today I stooped down to check item on bottom shelf and when stood up almost feel but able to hold on to shelves so didn't fall.

better send as computer is acting up. have good weekend everyone.

You needed a great teacher who made Shakespeare understandable. Kids can fall in love with him.

Walked in the mall, walked dear Kiwi, and grocery shopped. Now I need to get busy in my sewing room. The day is still young.

Busy day here. Gorgeous weather. Reached 13,000 steps already today, and walked part way in the mall with a dear friend from church. So nice to walk with a friend even if she can only walk extremely slow. Bella and Kiwi have had two long walks also.

I'm reading Shakespeare's MACBETH again bc I'll teach it Tuesday to 10th graders. I've gone over ASIMOV'S GUIDE TO SHAKESPEARE to help me recall all the finite details and explanations, too. I love teaching and being ultra prepared is part of my joy. Monday I'm teaching 9th and10th grade, so going over more of THE BEAN TREES with 9th grade, and MACBETH with the 10 graders for that teacher.

Continuing to pray for our nation, and newly elected officials.

Hugs

The lines have been horrible here all through early voting. Today I voted at 7:20AM and there was no line at all. Amazing. I went early to be sure I could vote. What a relief.

Right now is first time to use my brand new keyboard synced to my laptop. This will be marvelous for school. So far I truly love it.

Teaching tomorrow.

Take care not sure how long I'll stay up for election results.

I voted a few days ago in early voting. thought it would be easier than trying to find polling place and standing in long line. can't believe it is as close as the polls I saw say. waiting to look later tonight for predicted results. we record most of what we watch. I love fast forwarding through commercials.

Walked this morning, then to nursing home. Had a bone scan, but won't have results for a couple of weeks. Getting ready for a meeting tomorrow. Hope you have all had a good day.

I make the entire quilt by myself; cutting the pieces, sewing them together, creating the backing, layering the back, top and batting, and finally quilting it, and putting on the binding. Three times I had to use someone else's long arm machine bc the quilt was too large and cumbersome to do it on my Bernina machine. If I ever make a King size quilt, I will pay someone else to quilt it.

I love sewing, so it's not a chore for me. The Halloween quilt is 42"x58" - - a very busy wall hanging, and I plan to quilt it myself. The Panda quilt is 43"x53" but I haven't decided if I'll quilt it myself.

I voted today. I hope all of you make the effort to be heard.

panda really cute as are all the patterns. do you make the whole quilt or have help? how long does it take? I have done just a few squares over the years as part of quilts made to give as gifts for people retiring. didn't get anything for my retirement as most of the old timers who did that type of thing have retired. oh well.

our gym is open 7 days a week but we seem to be lucky if we go 3 times a week. hopefully we can make it tonight but depends on when boys get home from school. somehow if we don't go before dinner then we don't feel like going. I did do a little shopping today.

little easier to wake up today now that daylight savings time over.

Today will be my "off" day as my fitness center is closed. We will probably take the dogs for a long walk this afternoon since the weather is so nice. I do have a full schedule today with going to see Mother, working on my GFWC papers, laundry, etc. Busy week coming up with a funeral, bone density scan, club meeting and Veterans' Day program. Got to get all of my ducks in a row today!

Got my walking done today then went to Crestpark Nursing Home where my mother lives. She's feeling a little better today ~ has a cold and UTI. We had some problems yesterday with the NH and my sister raised enough heck yesterday that everyone was scurring around today.lol We are very pro-active in Mother's day-to-day care. Well, I need to go do her laundry so I must go for now. Have a great day!

had a good weigh-in today. at this rate I might be below 275 on new years but that is still less than a 10% weight loss. I read lots of articles and blogs and messages about how much better people feel but I don't really feel that different or have more energy. I can't see much difference or measure any real inches lost. one day that will change and so I continue. I look forward to a day when I fit into seat at theater and then i'll know it is making a noticeable difference.

have a great weekend everyone..

Totally forgot to check in on the team. I've been busy this week with my volunteer work and getting on track with Spark. I have managed to walk every day and log my food as well. It's all about getting into the habit again. Have a good Friday!

keep having problems with web this morning. now I have to try and retype my "chatter"...

yesterday I did 15 minutes each on bike and treadmill but had to push for the last 5 or so. I also did a machine that is for lower back and butt muscles and wasn't able to finish last set. will keep trying.

yesterday for the first time in a while I didn't go over on my sodium (ate mostly fruit and veggies). I know it is high due to eating too much processed food but I do not like to cook and not very good at it. I could probably qualify for "worst cooks in America" show but most likely would be the first one kicked off.

have a great day everyone

can't say I like to exercise but I am trying. I joined gym this summer partly for my sons as they say they want to build up muscles. not sure I see that but at least we go a few times a week. I didn't go for a week after I fell and banged up my face. mostly healed now and going back to gym however I have had to drop back to just 20 minutes where was doing about 45 before accident. i'll build back up but just surprised how much less I can seem to do.

have a great hump day everyone.

My teacher's retirement system is changing our health insurance January 1st to Humana. I believe Humana pays for Silver Sneakers, so I plan to look into it. I'm not sure if I'll have to join the "Y" to get access. I'll find out.

This evening will be awesome. It's the Quilt Festival preview night. Yeah!!
Tomorrow is shopping and drooling over magnificent quilts.
Friday is my all day class on repairing and maintaining my Singer Featherweight sewing machine.

I am so happy to be healthy and well again. I'll try not to exhaust myself, but I am pumped up.

Make good choices. Be kind to yourself.
