Beautiful day here. I'm off to take care of getting FIL admitted to the hospital today, which was something that hadn't been on my schedule. "The best laid plans of mice and men......." includes women as well! :-)

Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone!

Frannie, glad you're feeling better and that you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. That coughing sounds like you may have bronchitis instead of a cold.

We have had almost 4 inches of rain here the past 2 days. It is so strange to see the grass green in Virginia in August--usually our laws look like straw and crunch under our feet this time of year. Other areas near us have had 11-13 inches during a 24 hours period, so we have been blessed. We haven't had to contend with the flooding or traffic problems that others in a 100 mile radius have faced.

Glad that you are feeling better, Frannie.

Our weather cooled off beautifully but it is warming up again! Supposed to be nearly 100 tomorrow and Wednesday. Sigh.

I really attacked the house this morning and my body is tired!!

Hi everyone, it has been awhile since I have been able to post. I am finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel at work. It has been crazy! To add to that I got a terrible cold a week ago and am still trying to get over that. I hope you are all doing better than I am! I finally walked to work this morning, trying to walk last week led to an endless coughing spell but today was much better.

I don't pay much attention to those storms, but since I am coming to the East Coast, maybe Ineed to start tracking them...

Barb, we've got 74 degrees and rain here. We're just watching Tropical Storm Isaac to see if it brings much activity up the east coast.

It is sad when the weather conspires against you...it's still warm here but we have had a break--it is only in the mid 90's instead of over 100!

It's cool and rainy here today, so I have no excuse not to stay in and get the housework done. It's something I've been avoiding, but guess I'll take care of it today since I can't "play" outside!

There's still a ways to go,gained like 8 pounds from being able to do absolutely Nothing for 12 weeks from surgery! Trying to find energy to get to the gym today, a little stiff n sore but gotta get there!
You all have a wonderful and Blessed Sunday emoticon

Well, we are home from our big holiday! We drove 7,543 kilometers! (over 4,500 miles) We are exhausted and happy to be home but we sure had a good time.

It's HOT HOT HOT here now too so it looks like our summer will be extended - I love the heat (not so much humidity). It's a good thing that it's not really humid here.

I am not a big fan of heat, but I hate humidity. Some of that is because I have lived with none for so many years.

Back to work, and back into routine again. I have no willpower tho, and need to be able to get into my swimming suit in September when I go to Vegas! Just depressing:(

I love the cooler weather! Heat and humidity are my hubbie's favorite, so we have an interesting mix. One of my dream vacations is a trip to Alaska, and he says I'll have to go by myself--he'd rather head for the tropics. I think he's watched too many episores of "Ice Road Truckers!" emoticon

Barb,
I'm enjoying the cooler weather but it makes the summer seem like it's over. I guess they are right when they say the older you get the faster the time goes. I really didn't get to enjoy too much of the month of July because the humidity made it hard for me to breath without the A/C so I spent most of my time inside the house. Hate being cooped up. It's like living in a hole, no windows open doors shut, and I couldn't walk except on the treadmill UGH! emoticon
If I could I would send you some of this cooler weather, emoticon

Oh, Babbo, what I wouldn't give for cooler weather right now!! It has been 100 plus for nearly a week. Don't like it, and my cats are wilted.

Hi All,
Woke up today to the weather feeling like October instead of August. It's suppose to be like this for a couple of days, I'm happy but it could be just a little warmer. I guess we are never satisfied. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. We have a family reunion to attend Sunday and I hope it is warmer.
Have a great day.

Hope everyone is doing okay. I'll try to get back and read the thread to see what is happening. We've been busy trying to get everything ready for daughter to leave for college next week, since she just returned from a missions trip late Monday night. A lot of my exercise seems to be running in circles these days!!! emoticon

Getting ready for another bad storm tonight. I wish and pray that they would stop and just rain lightly through the night. Hate the thunder and lighting. It is REALLY terrible. No electric or A/C or fans to cool you down. Windows have to be closed because of the wind. Trying to cool off the house before the storms start. Next year we'll have whole house A/C I hope.

I'm looking forward to fall and maybe winter this year. I hate snow but I'll take it.

Just signed up for a Spark Virtual 5K walk. Mapped my route on the fitness tracker mapper and will go tomorrow. Shooting for 15 minute miles to start working my way up (or down) to 13 minute miles in 8 weeks. Have been walking for 6 weeks steadily increasing distance and decreasing time, feel like I need a new challenge. Don't really want to do an organized "race" but need something to motivate me to continue to get better. Eventually I want to do a walk/run half marathon next summer and most have a time limit of 3.5 hours to complete the course. Looking forward to the challenge!

Hi ladies!

We are having a fabulous road trip! We are in California now and heading to San Diego tomorrow morning. I'm not on the computer much but I'm trying to "spark" as best I can. We're getting lots of exercise and, my goodness, it is HOT HOT HOT!

I'll be a much better sparker when we return home in approx. 1 1/2 weeks.

I hope everyone is well!

Hi All,
Weather is nice today. Trying to go out to do some much needed yard work after all the bad storms that we have been experiencing. Humidity is down so breathing much easier. No A/C today. Hope this weather keeps up.
Our garden didn't do very well this year. No canning for us unless we go to the farm markets and buy the veggies. Might do some of that but not sure.
Hope everyone has a pleasant day and don't over due. emoticon emoticon

Getting pretty hot here in western Oregon, upper 90's which is hot for us. Did manage to get in 4 mile walk today, talk about sweaty!!! We're lucky that we don't get humid here, just hot. Getting ready to do some canning this week as beans and other veges are coming on strong!!
Have a great week everyone.

Wow, Reedsport is only an hour away from me here in Eugene! Have a wonderful time on the dunes. Keep your eyes open for whales, we were at the coast last weekend and saw lots, and lots of them. Look for the spouts out in the ocean, sometimes you can see them rolling and playing too!

It's been hot here too. I go out in the early morning if I have something to do outside but about 10 am it's in the house to do as much as I can with the A/C on. I have a breathing problem with the humidity so I have to take it easy. And I too have arthritis, which flares up when it is going to rain or storm. Last month really gave me pain, more storm than I can ever remember in one month and sometimes in one week.

It's heck when you remember what your parents went through with their health and now you inherited it.

Hope you all have a good day. emoticon

Yes, the summer seems to have slipped through our fingers. I can't believe that the kids will be back in school in 2 weeks. I guess they are right when they say the older you get the faster time goes by but I have all the time in the world to do things that I couldn't when I worked. emoticon
Hope you all got to do the things you wanted to do this summer and enjoyed yourselves. emoticon
