Good Afternoon Everyone,
It seems everyone is busy with Christmas prep or otherwise.
I still have to get a gift for my older daughter and youngest grand daughter..

One of our traditional Christmas drinks is sorrel and I have lots on my tree in the back yard which I will pick later this evening.

Went to a funeral yesterday and it was like a reunion seeing folks one had not seen for ages.. The person was a well known music teacher who played for many churches and schools,She was the organist at one of our churches.

I usually go to the market and grocery on Saturday mornings but didn't do market today.

Went swimming in the sea yesterday and i got a good workout.

Tomorrow is our Men's fellowship Christmas concert at church and I'm singing in the choir. I'm really looking forward to it as it is usually a fun time. It is free and many hampers will be given out..

Have a blessed time of day everyone,
Much Love,
Roz.

Gd morning Everyone,,
Joined this group again yesterday,hoping to catch up with old friends.

Yiddle-----You are so right there were the two Donnas , Sheila and
Alice among a few and you of course.. who were very chatty.

I did go swimming yesterday and also did some walking in the sea. I'm finding it easier to get my exercise done early in the morning.I tend to need to rest more as I get older.
Stay blessed,
Roz.

I have not been getting message alerts for a couple of weeks now. I have tried several things available on the site to restore my messages, but none worked. I went to the main page and down at the bottom found a new way to get help.

Unfortunately it was a total scam. When I clicked on the "contact us" button, I was redirected to "Just Answer" They wanted my credit card info for a $5 deposit that would be returned after my session. I stupidly gave them the information. While they hadn't even helped me yet, I got a fraud alert from my bank asking if I had authorized a $48.00 charge to Just Answer. I said no, and then called the fraud department and told them exactly what happened. The charge was denied, of course. I closed that account.

But now that that scam has my information, and SP info, I just feel too vulnerable. I am sorry to lose your friendship, but I am 81 and very much afraid of identity theft.

Please understand.

I wish you well, and hope other features on SparkPeople can be a real help for you.
God bless you.

Once upon a time, we were a chatty group. Sorry some folks had better things to do that keep coming here.

Wonderful day teaching high school advanced Economics.
All school pep rally was noisy, and exciting. Grades K through 12 What a fun hour with so much energy.

Tomorrow I am helping son and Dil with their moving garage sale. Their house is sold, and they are moving the end of next week. Such a hectic, wonderful time for them. Their new house is days from completion, so they are renting their sold house from the buyer for 10 days. So much to do.

Happy days.

The AltaHR is working fine. It doesn't count stairs, but I've backed off from climbing stairs as part of my daily regime anyway. My left knee doesn't like stairs so much anymore.

I helped my DIL in Tomball with her garage sale this weekend. I was the money changer and watched the cash box. Easy job. Others took care of the customers, and haggling over prices. I'll help next weekend too.

Still waiting for our insurance check, but the tree is down and the roof is repaired. Good to have those two items done.

Love this cooler weather.

Feel horrible for those in the path of Irma. Such tragedy in its path.

Well, my Fitbit One died. I wrestled with the options, and decided on an Alta HR. My first bracelet type. I hope I like it. I've worn a clip style for years and years. This is a big change. I wore DH's discarded Charge HR until it died, but it never gave me as many steps as the one I clipped on my shoe. ( I wore both for comparison) I know I'll feel cheated on steps, but sometimes it's hard to find a place to wear the clip on sandals or dressy shoes. Mine is pink bc thats all Best Buy had. I'm happy enough with pink and have a lot of it in my wardrobe. With cooler weather coming, it won't show under long sleeves anyway.

The insurance adjuster came and gave us an estimate. He'll mail our check bc his printer ink was out. With a $4,700 deduction, we won't get a lot, but we'll get something to fix the rest of the damage. Harvey's deduction was 2% across the board. Sad, but true.

Showing off my Cowboy quilt top I made for my grandson. He sleeps on a twin bed. This is shown draped over our King bed, so it's plenty big to hand over the sides of his bed.

I'm working on the backing today, and then I'll give it to a quilter to be quilted. It's bigger than anything i have ever tackled.

No, pictures do not tell the extent of the problem. Only part of the tree is in the photo, the rest of the tree is in a "Y" formation and resting in the other trees behind the house. This tree is huge. I took as many photos as I could bc we'll let the licensed arborist take out the trees as soon as he can get his equipment in here. The insurance adjuster will only be interested in the structural damage to the home, so getting the tree out is acceptable.

No water is coming in even though the rain continues.

I am quilting bc I cannot watch the destruction around us over and over on the TV. We still have power and water and sufficient food to shelter in place.

People without flood insurance will have nothing after this storm, and must start all over. Many homes in the flood have never ever had water problems before this. Letting water out of the reservoirs to prevent the collapse of the dams is imperative, but this new water release on top of the continuing rain just does unimaginable destruction.

Thank you for your concerns and prayers. Texans are helping Texans, and that is an outpouring of love.

Stay safe.

Magnificent tree brought down by Harvey storm resting on back of house. 2nd tree downed by Harvey fell across the road behind our home. The county removed the part that blocked the road, but not the part on our property. We have contacted a licensed tree removal service with an enormous crane to remove both trees from our property. Insurance adjuster cannot even come until Tuesday, Sept 5th. Roads are under water and impassable. We have to be patient, but are grateful for protection from calamity. The tree squeezed in between our home and huge pine trees behind the house that prevented tree from crashing through our roof.

We are safe

Thanks for your prayers and concern. We live in The Woodlands, and have been through many hurricanes and tropical storms since 1981 when we settled here.

My laundry is caught up, house clean, gas tank filled, water stored, so we are set. No generator here, so long term power outage may force our hand. Our youngest son has a second home on Canyon Lake near Austin and we're invited. Our daughter's long term companion lives just outside the Woodlands and he has a generator, and invited us. We'll stay put if we can, but know we have options.

Skies are overcast, but no rain yet.

My Fitbit needs nightly charging, so it will die if power stays out, but that's a small inconvenience.

Take care of yourselves.

IF Harvey develops into a hurricane, Houston area MAY get 10" - 15" of rain. My plants would love a good soak, but flooding is never fun. Our home is perched high, so we don't get direct hits of flooding, but still not healthy for surrounding areas.

Stay safe.

Today is another hot one forecast. We did not get the anticipated rain yesterday, but may get some today.

This is my Craft Circle day. I'm starting a new project there using a 12" - 60 degree triangle. I'll create a kaleidoscope table runner with a musical themed border print. Should be fun to watch it emerge.

Hope you find an ideal present for your dear man.

All is well here

Hugs

We celebrated our 62nd wedding anniversary yesterday. Mostly a quiet day. We enjoyed dinner at the local Chinese restaurant. We told a few folks at church and enjoyed their smiles and congratulations. Joe, of course, said "condolences" were in order. Everyone enjoys his humor. Funny man.

More heat today of course. It's still summer.

After my walk, I'll get going on grandson Joe's Dallas Cowboy quilt.

Bless you in all you do. Have an awesome day.

Hugs

Yes, a clean house is great. I have a tough time keeping up with it some weeks. I do my best to walk 10,000+ steps a day and sometimes I just do not feel like tackling a big cleaning job. I have to moderate my morning walks so I can still get at the house. Course two octogenarians don't create much real dirt, mostly dust. If neglected, it becomes a chore.

All is well today. I got some good sewing done yesterday afternoon, and will complete two more fabric sheet music bags today that are nearly done. So Tuesday I can turn in three more sheet music bags That makes four total for the craft circle bc I turned in one last Tuesday. Plus I mailed one to a internet friend Thursday. So I've made five total.

Enjoy your weekend.

Yesterday I tackled the heavy vacuuming and worked until I felt it. All is well again.

Forecast here is for "Feels like" 110. So I got out early with Kiwi's walk, and then blew off the front deck and driveway.

American Sewing Guild yesterday was inspiring and fun. Such a lovely group of super talented ladies.

We had an overnight visit of some kind of critter who was really making a racket scratching around in the privacy area. Kiwi even barked to the darkness. Sigh.

My Fitbit is acting up terribly. This morning it was blank. It's plugged in again. Used to keep a charge for a full week. Not anymore. I didn't even get a low battery warning. Must be on its last breath. So no steps so far on the Fitbit. I charged it overnight just a couple of days ago when it quit on me.

Enjoy your weekend.

I suppose being among friends on your birthday must've been a treat also. The kids at the private school bring in cupcakes for their class on their special day and everyone enjoys it with them. That has its advantages too. Sometimes the teachers whose birthdays fall in the school year gets nice trinkets and gift cards from their students on their big day. Very heartwarming to see. It's a wonderful private school.

Continues hot again.

Have a blessed Sunday.

With an August birthday and anniversary, I was never in school for either of those in Michigan. It was unpleasant to adjust to working on those days after we moved here. Not a problem now that I'm retired. Grins.

The summer heat is real and constant now. The 90's are difficult enough, but the triple digits are plain uncomfortable. Of course everywhere except the great outdoors is air conditioned so avoiding the heat is possible.

Today is National Lazy Day! Giggles! My body must've know it was lazy day. I didn't wake up until 7:30 Wow!!


Kiwi had a short walk and then I head to the mall. Delightful. I found an artist who was featured in our art gallery and walked an hour with her. Then just as I was about to leave bumped into an English teacher I subbed for at the private school. So good to see old friends and have a chance to catch up.

DH and I are babysitting our 16 month old great grand son this afternoon. He's a fun little guy, full of life.

School starts here August 16th, and I'm having breakfast that morning with a wonderful groups of retired English teachers from the high school where I taught for 23 years. Really looking forward to that.

Enjoy your day.
