Good evening Seesters. I'm so glad that you all are alive and kicking. It is nice to touch base with friendly voices.

Slept about 3 hours last night. Ran on empty today but have 2 more days to go so I'm going to bed soon. Gotta unwind for a few before hitting the hay.

Saw the partial eclipse yesterday. It was fun.

Some nice good samaritan mowed my lawn today so it looks nice for a bit.

SS, sorry about your new challenge. Many people find that walking for 30 minutes after meals really helps the sugars stay better controlled. Even 10 pounds will drop your sugars significantly. You can get this down. You will feel so much better as well.

Weeze, sounds like things are getting ready and it is good timing. Don't want to be hurrying when she gets closer. It will give you all time to enjoy this time.

PJ, it has to be hard with your dad having harder times with changes and interruptions in his routine. It's so hard and the changes are subtle at times but relentless.

LG, I can see why you love the tours. I'm sure you will miss them but enjoy the rest.

Have a great night all. Will try to check in tomorrow.

Went to Macyís this morning and bought myself 4 new pair of exercise/yoga type pants. Good price and this is what I wear almost all the time unless I am going somewhere. I do want to find some Capri length jeans maybe I will find those when we get to Texas all the fall/winter stuff is out here unless I happen across some on clearance.

Had lunch with dad, did his Rx for the week and met the lady who will be doing this while we are in Texas. She will actually start in December before we leave to make sure we are all comfortable with the situation before we leave. Dad was very confused as to what was going on anything different and new throws him for a loop. He goes for his yearly neurology/Alzeihemerís checkup the first week in November and we will see how much has changed over the last year.

Weez 2 the room is set now for the little one to arrive.

Sharon hopefully you can get it under control in the next 6 months a good incentive for you thatís for sure. How is the furniture arranging. Donít try and sit in the wrong place or you will end up on the floor LOL

Morning!
My Drs visit yesterday was to let me know that I am Diabetic. She wanted to go over what it all means for my health. She gave me the Diabetic diet and she thinks with losing weight and exercise, I can get it under control. We are going to wait six months and let me work at it. Then if it's still in the same range she will put me on meds. So, I have even more reason to lose weight!

I have been busy this morning. Norm decided with our carpets cleaned, we should put the furniture back in a different arrangement. So we have been moving our heavy furniture around all morning.

The MH is outside our home now so I have to spend the day doing a lot of packing! Our neighbors are giving us a going away dinner this evening. It will be a dinner for eight. I'm not sure who the other couples will be. It will be a surprise!

Morning, Ladies!

Had a very busy day yesterday....Thomas and I worked at the museum for the last school tour until next spring. We don't do any more now due to the fact that a lot of the tour is outside and it is getting cold. Had a lot of fun with the kids yesterday after one asked about "Hector"! Their teacher is a member of the Historical Society and I teased her about not spending the night in the museum like we do. One of the kids asked if he could!! We laughed and told him no. We had a meeting after the tour so it was after 2 p.m. before I got home.

Got to my sewing room for a while and I'm working to get the Christmas Throw done. I have a few appliques to get down. Then to the quilter!

Plan to do some baking today and sewing. It is just under 4 weeks to our retreat and I'm trying to get everything wrapped up and ready.

emoticon to everyone.....

Woo Hoo!!! Kelly"s crib finally arrived and is assembled. The baby's room is taking shape. Her friend has been passing along all her baby things so this baby is very well set up already. I need to get my minky blanket done for her shower on Sunday. I found a few blankets that were her dad's and she's excited to have them. I have one that was her's that her Great G'ma gave her that needs a new backing and binding and I'll pass that one along for her too.

Have a great night

This is just a quick pop in.

Hope everyone is fine. I'm trying to get more exercise in too make the scale go down, but I don't think it's working. My food is fine, but I'll keep trying.

Next week is short but busy. I didn't have any extra work until yesterday and I have something everyday, lucky me. At least the paycheck won't be short. We have two days off next week because of the annual festival the town has.

Got to get Joshua going on school.

Have a good one y'all.

Good morning, Seesters!


TB, emoticon I'm not so good with words, so just emoticon .


WG, small bits of fabric is all...to coordinate with fabric that I already had. emoticon


SS, it sounds like a very good trip. I remembered last night that we actually have a casino closer than KC - Downstream is closer by quite a bit. I rarely remember that.


I have a hair trim today, several things to do, and then tomorrow I take DB to his home from the Care Center for a home evaluation prior to his projected release date of next Friday. I do hope all goes well - so many things to consider there. Perhaps it will be simpler than I anticipate - I find I do make things harder than they need to be.

Hello to all! I am defrosting an upright freezer for the last time! emoticon

Hi Seesters. Having a fun but very unproductive day. Fabio is here again. His mama is changing jobs and has to go to work today. She usually goes on Wednesday but has never made a regular arrangement for it so I usually watch him both days.

DS came by to paint but it was too cold and miserable. I missed out on a visit with DIL to tie a quilt but she ended up going to the "milk store" about 50 miles away. We like to go together in the fall for shelf stable milk for the kids to enjoy in their lunch boxes. I get a few for the kids to enjoy when they stop by. She picked up some for me but it wasn't like having a visit.

Weezie2, enjoy your day.

LG, hope you are getting the sewing room in shape and your projects for your retreat.

SS, good for you having a good time at the slots. I'm sure there is plenty to do before you go south for the winter.

Tammy, more fabric? sounds fun.

Gotta run. Laundry waits and a lot of other things that need to be done. Have a wonderful day.

Got a walk in before going to meet my knitting group. Then went to the store. Bought some things for Frank to take with him that I wonít eat. Yes its that time of year again. He is talking about leaving for his hunting on Tuesday. Yea!!!!!

WG are you feeling better today. We did enjoy our breakfast out. We very seldom eat out and especially not breakfast.

Sharon sounds like you had fun without losing. Busy time now getting ready for your winter trip. I keep telling myself I am not going to pack as many clothes because I usually donít wear half of what I take. But I will probably keep packing too much as you never know what you may need.

We're back!

The last couple of days have been a lot of fun although it didn't start out too well. Just after we left and got a few miles down the road the car started making a funny noise. Norm felt he better turn around and go back home! Fortunately, it didn't take too long to find the problem and get it repaired. Then we were on the road again. We arrived early so we went for dinner before checking in. Then we played slots, slots and more slots. Did we win lots of money - NO! But we were able to play for hours with the money allotted to spend so we were happy. This morning we played the slots a little bit before check out and Norm redeemed himself by winning about $50. I did not! Anyway, the ride home was beautiful with the sun shining on the fall colors. Now we can concentrate on getting ready to leave on Monday.

Hi, Seesters!


WG, glad you are having a good day and slept better. Sleep is good, isn't it? emoticon I did the initial garden-tilling on Sunday afternoon, and felt the effect on Monday - not bad, just obviously some unused-to-such-activity muscles. It will not keep me from using it again in the next few days. emoticon


SS, did you or Norm win big? Isn't it fun to enjoy the casino occasionally? It has been a very long time since DH and I have done that, though. We would be closest to KC to do that.


Weezie2, I do look at the MSQC emails every day looking at their Daily Deal, and I have even ordered from those! I like Jenny's little daily writings [or whoever writes them].


PJ, I think your breakfast is something one needs to do once in a while. I know it keeps me from feeling deprived, and I don't have to do it often. A lot of times when we are at Cracker Barrel and Joe orders the infamous "Big Momma's Breakfast" with the eggs, sausage, and then those huge pancakes [billions of calories emoticon ], I will often take a bite of the pancakes, and that is enough to satisfy me.


I went to a fabric store yesterday - I know that is a big surprise! emoticon


Hello to everyone. Off to get a good start on the day before work.

Hi Seesters. Having a fun day. Fabio is finally asleep and the kids are gone. It was nice to see the babies and to get to play with them.

I did sleep better last night. I only watched part of one movie but that is much better than the past few nights.

SS, have fun at the casino. I know you and Norm enjoy being with others, but you also enjoy each other. And the dog with be clean and nice when you return. Fun times.

LG, I know it is hard to have a "wing" out of commission but it is worth it to have improved function. My cousin had all her finger joints done a few years ago. But her arthritis was so bad all of her life.

PJ, breakfast sounds fun. I'm sure you had fun doing it.

Have a nice day and HI to Weezies, Tammy, TB, Judy, Jo, and everyone. I do hope you have a wonderful day.

Was a bad girl today went out for breakfast and had pancakes with lots of syrup. Need to track that and see how awful I really was. We made our yearly drive to Franks hunting place to check out the area. It has been flooded there and now that the water has receeded it is a muddy mess. We walked out in the woods to look around and about got eaten up with mosquitos so didnít walk far or very long.

We have AT&T for our cell phones but use Verizon for internet while traveling. It is kind of nice that way because there have places when one wouldn't work but the other will.

The ignition parts had to be ordered and they will call when they get the parts.

SS, not much better weather-wise here. The wind is blowing and it is only about 50. Already tired of this! I don't have a date as of yet but I see the doc next Tuesday and hope that I'll have a date then. It will definitely be after our quilt retreat. Enjoy your overnight at the casino!

PJ, I'm on AT&T. Last weekend when the kids were here, Jason, Rachel, & I got on the phone and called them about their "Friends & Family" plan...10 lines, 10GB of Data, etc. We got a deal and Jason got an Iphone 6 out of it! Now he didn't get it for free but did get a discount. My bill went from way over $100 to $80. I'm saving over $50!! I've never lost a call and my service is great. I understand that in areas it could be bad but I've never had that happen. When we went to Barbados, I added International Roaming and called mom 4-5 times and it was clear as a bell. I can't complain.

WG, the doc told me that I'd have 4-6 weeks of "down time" with the wrist. That is why it is after Thanksgiving. Jason/Stephanie and kids will be here for Thanksgiving and not Christmas. They will come for New Year's and I should be in pretty good shape by then. At least I hope so. Hope you are enjoying Fabio!!

Morning!
Another gloomy day here. I will be so glad to get out of this gray, overcast weather and head to the land of the sun - AZ!

This week is busy but fun. Today we head out for our overnight casino visit. This casino is about 2 1/2 hrs from home so it's not the one we normally go to. Our friends can't go due to health issues so we're on our own. I wanted to cancel but Norm said we have a kennel reserved for Bailey plus grooming so he said let's go anyway. So perhaps we'll win some gas money for our trip!

WG - sorry you have that cold crap. Please take care of yourself and don't let it hang on for weeks like I did.

PJ - I don't think anyone can visit a Verizon store without them getting into your checkbook! We stick with Verizon as they have so much better coverage out in the western states but they are definitely not cheap!

LG - you, my lady are always busy! But, if anyone can get their Christmas baking in and everything else before your surgery, you would be the one! Do you have a date for your surgery yet?

SEK - I don't think I could handle driving a bus, let alone deal with the teens! You have my respect. I hope your boss got an earful!

Evening Seesters. It has been a nice day but I'm tired. Way too many drugs and soda to keep the "tickle cough" away. I was pretty "medicine head" before I left work. It is what it is. Fortunately I don't have to go again until Friday.

Judy, it has to be awful being gone for 16 hours with a bunch of teens anyway. I'm sure you will figure out a way to make it not happen again.

Weezie, I'm glad antibiotics are working. It is nice to rest but it is more fun if you feel good.

LG, busy as usual. I always admire that you do the church laundry and press it as well. That is a lot of work. I'm sure you are blessed for your service. Glad you are spending time sewing and cutting out. That retreat is coming soon. I'm sure you will enjoy that time. Then you will have time to rest and heal from your surgery. I'm glad you are getting things fixed.

PJ, hope the ignition got fixed. It is a lot of errands. You won't leave until the trailer is fixed, will you? I hope it doesn't change your plans. Sounds like cookie making is in your future. You may find ways to get the "healthier" ones in there for your son. Then he can enjoy a few as well.

Tammy, glad step GS is on home soil. It is hard to have them gone. So many uncertainties. How is the garden tiller going?

I'm off to bed. Hoping to get some sleep tonight. Tomorrow is Fabio and maybe quilting or maybe Wednesday. Have a great night all.

Went to my two fitness classes today, stopped by the Chevy dealer about the recall on my ignition switch, then went to the Verizon store. Our Mifi quit working while on our trip so ended up getting a new one of course $20 more a month but it is 4G and 2 more gigs of data each month.

Frank took the trailer in to see about getting the body fixed and they are ordering parts. So we can have that all fixed before heading south in December.

SEK we have been mowing also. I hope itís the last time for this year. Seems like we are mowing really late in the season this year. Iím tired of it.

LG busy in a week or two. I laugh you are always busy but I do understand about baking ahead. DS and future DIL want to come over and bake cookies to take with them to Ohio at Thanksgiving. I had already thought about doing that anyway. He is meeting her family for the first time. Need to make a good first impression but I know he will anyway.

Have a nice afternoon It is so nice out I think we will grill chicken out for dinner

I have no doubts that Kami and I will always have a special relationship. Weezie would be proud! She had me introduce signing to Kami when she was a baby. Yesterday she asked me to put the DVDs on and was asking for my help to get her fingers right. She's a very smart child and I want to encourage that along. Kami has a great relationship with my mom too. She'll ask me to take her to see great G'ma.

Tammy...how far do you live from the Missouri Quilt Company? They have some great 1 day sales. It's an 8 hour drive from my house so I'll have to live vicariously through you ...lol

Have a great Monday!

Afternoon, everyone!

A very busy morning here. After chapel, I got the laundry and got home and got it started. Thomas and I ran a few errands and then I started some bread. It is about to go in the oven! I'm thinking of maybe veggie soup and fresh bread for supper. YUM!!

Didn't do much of anything yesterday except 4 loads of laundry. Spent most of the afternoon on the couch watching football. YEAH, COLTS!! Did watch part of the Broncos/49ers game. Payton is a great quarterback.

After the bread comes out of the oven, I plan to get upstairs to the sewing room. Hoping to get the last block on the Christmas throw sewn together.

Judy, sorry about the bus trip from hell.....you see...that is why I don't drive kids around!!

PJ, I applaud anyone who can visit terminally ill people. That is very hard. emoticon

Tammy, hate family confrontations. Really haven't experienced that many but did have a few with FIL. He was domineering. He wanted to rule everything and when he couldn't rule me, he bulked and made life miserable for us. I only told him one time to leave me alone.

WG, it is hard when family members refuse to "give" some when some one makes a gesture of asking for "forgiveness". You can't live a full life with hate in your heart. It weighs you down like concrete.

As for Thomas' hand, the swelling has gone down considerably. So I'm sure that it was a bite of some kind. But don't think it was a spider. He said that it never hurt or itched. Strange!

Weezie2, Kami will always remember her special times with Gramma. Luke still remembers the things we used to do. Every now and then he even asks about my mom. Amazing.

Weezie, hope that your day at work hasn't been too overwhelming. Remember to breath!!

Well, the bread is about done. I didn't sleep well last night and so while I laid there I made lists in my head about what I need to get done in November before this hand surgery. I will have to get all my baking (sweet rolls, cookies, breads, candy, etc) done and in the freezer or I'm sure it won't get done. So I'll be very busy beginning in about a week or two.

SS waited on me with no weight loss but no gain so that's a win.

It's been a crazy busy week and weekend. I worked a 16 hour day Saturday with a bus trip from hell. The boss will hear about it in a few minutes. Yesterday we spent out side mowing, cleaning the one water feature and re-laying some rock around it, some had shifted, so it's covered and ready for next year. I don't know if we'll have to mow again depends on the weather. So I'm pooped and would love to take the day off but I won't.

Y'all take care and have a magnificent Monday!

Good afternoon. The kids are coming in a few so this will be short. I'm glad you all are busy. Love hearing about your lives.

Tammy, the baggage the family carries won't go away unless they want it to and it doesn't seem like they do. I was angry at my step father for many years for things he had done and been. The last few years of his life were a great blessing to me as he changed. He never asked for forgiveness, he never acknowledged his part in my pain, but he clearly had a "change of heart" and even though it was greatly due to his dementia, it gave me the gift of being able to forgive him and move on. My sister, sadly, did not take advantage of this time and is still angry and bitter over things that happened. I hope your hubby's children will find ways to get past their feelings and find the man he has become.

I'm still working on that, BTW with my ex and it hasn't been nearly as easy.

PJ, I so appreciate your hospice work. Now that I've experienced it firsthand, it has made me look at things in a different light. Are you a volunteer "visitor?" I know they offered that to us and although we didn't need it, I think one came a few times. Not nearly as annoying as the harpist, but that one I couldn't have stopped.

I'm so glad the shawl is almost done. I thought you were doing one for your BIL's fiance as well. Saw some cute hedgehog mittens on pinterest. They were very cute and I thought of you. I don't have the talent yet to knit something like that. I'm pretty basic. When I get bored, I still do dishcloths although no one uses them any more. I sometimes use them as coasters for things on the counter.

Weezie2, I'm glad Kami gets to spend the day with you. It is nice that she is so close. I know that special bond is one that is magic and doesn't happen with every child or grand. You try and love them the same but spending time together gives you special memories. I can imagine both of you watching the game and cheering.

LG, spider? Maybe hiding inside his glove? Watch it and if it gets red or miserably painful, see a doctor. Otherwise, it will probably get better. It sounds like your sewing is coming along well. I hate it when I have to get a tiny bit more fabric.

SS, great on the weight loss! The team challenge must be helping everyone. I'm glad you are doing it. It would be fun to do something like this on this team. Who knows. Hope your casino visit is a fun one. Sorry about your friend. She may be able to travel but a few weeks later.

I've caught a cold from someone. I'd hate to think one of the grands but who knows. Felt scratchy yesterday morning but by evening was really dragging. Slept poorly a second night in a row and would love to nap today. Instead I've drugged up and have a roast in the crock pot with veggies. Still need to run the vacuum on the floor but it is nice outside and we may dine "al fresco" again today. Maybe even "poolside" since they filled the pool to see if it is working.

I'm glad it is nice out so the kids will all go on a walk and the dog with them. She likes those days. Now I do feel badly that I didn't finish the lawn last night but it is slowing down and didn't grow that much. The patio finally got cleaned off and the wood from the windstorm a couple of years ago is finally gone. We could dine on the patio.

Will visit tomorrow. Have a great day all.

Hi, Seesters!

DH and I had breakfast with the oldest SD and family [SIL who was in the wreck, daughter and her family] at the local Cracker Barrel. If you ever eat there, I do recommend the Broccoli N' Cheese Good Egg Bake. I have had it two or three times, and I immediately know I am going to have that if I find I am going to Cracker Barrel. 430 calories, 20 g carbs, 25 gr protein As for the individuals at that breakfast, and I have shared probably too many times the family drama, I feel it went well. It was mentioned that DH and I come up, and I had thought about this possibly happening many times over the past two years of drama, and I said "We need to set a date right now, and then when you get home, check what is going on with Tom's rehab, the younger kids, etc, and we will change it if we need to." I also specifically told my SD to let her dad know. At least for today, I am going to show these people how to behave. emoticon

I am now a step further on my gardening journey; I purchased a small garden cultivator yesterday, in very good shape, at a yard sale. I read the booklet, DH helped me start it, and I can see it being a great help in my garden journey. Fitness, outdoor air, hopefully some garden produce next year... emoticon

PJ, I would love to see a pic of the shawl when it is done.

Have a very good afternoon, friends. Hello to everyone!

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

Spent the morning doing a volunteer hospice assignment at a patients house. Now it is time to get back outside for more yard work while we have this nice weather.

WG hope you are feeling better.

Weez I have only a few more rows about 22 on this shawl I am making (For future DIL) as a wedding present. And I have some socks I am working on also. Havenít gotten back to the placemats yet but they look at me everytime I am in the SHE CAVE.

LG great way to pick up a few $$ selling those pins. I love my early morning quiet time also. But I have been sleeping in a bit later since our trip.

I hope all of you are having a relaxing enjoyable Sundayl

Happy Sunday...Yep the Packer game is on in less than an hour also. It's a rush to see what can be accomplished before it starts.

Chell wants to work on some beading so Kami will be watching the game with me, It's so much fun watching her raise her arms in the air and yell touchdown.

My sister gave me a recipe for granola bars so I think I'll make a batch today with Kami.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hello, sorry I didn't get here yesterday. It was a very busy day. Thomas cleaned up the garden and got bit by something on the hand. It has swollen and he said that it hurts. For now he is icing it. Not sure what got him (or if anything because he had gloves on).

I got to my sewing room for a while and cut out my 10" squares for the quilt that Weezie and I are going to make at quilt retreat. Ran out of material and still have 2 squares to cut. UGH! So tomorrow I'll go get some more to get that job done. So since I couldn't finish that I got my last block cut for the Christmas throw. Now today, I'll try to get it made but we have a Colts game to watch. So that might go on the back burner.

WG, hope you get to feeling better quickly.

SS, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon with the weight loss! Sorry about your trip to the casino. But you and Norm will enjoy it none the less.

Now I've got to scoot.....need to get lunch fixed. Colts game comes on in an hour.

Good Morning!
And it is a GOOD morning! I weighed in with a 4 lb loss for the first week of our Challenge. Tammy also had a good loss. PJ too! We're waiting with bated breath to see how SEK did. I hope well, as she's on my team!

Bad news on our casino run. The other couple has ongoing health issues and we found out yesterday that she is in so much pain from a bulge in her spine. She has to have surgery and soon as she is in so much pain. I feel so bad for her. This may affect their trip to AZ this winter. Plus, she's supposed to go on a cruise in a month which doesn't seem possible right now.

I think Norm and I will still go to the Overnight Casino trip as we get the room free and we have Bailey all signed up for the kennel and grooming while we're gone. It won't be as much fun but we'll still have a good time.

If we lived closer I would be happy to teach you. There are quite a few of us that knit or crochet. It would be so much fun to have our own knitting group. Have you tried your local library? Our's has instructional dvd's. U tube would have some too.

I'll be off running some errands soon and cleaning when I get home.

Have a Great Saturday!

Hi, Seesters!

Weezie2, you need to teach me to knit! I have tried to teach myself, and a friend/colleague has tried to teach me...emphasis on "tried". My mom told me not long ago she thought I would never learn to crochet, but I do think I am a pretty darn good crocheter, so I guess once I learn, I am okay! emoticon

We have to get all our leaves off the ground - front lawn in our neighborhood - we already share with our neighbors too much every time there is wind and there are leaves on the ground. We try to get to them every few days. We have an attachment for our riding mower that picks up most, and we also have a Weedeater product which "sucks" up those in areas the mower attachment doesn't get which mulches and bags them immediately. Since we share mostly with our neighbor across the street, we got "our" leaves, plus hers, yesterday. I have heard that about the grass being affected by leaves left on over the winter.

I did thankfully sleep past 1:30 a.m. last night, and am looking forward to meeting members of my Spark Springfield team today for a few hours which will include a walk, and attending the step-GGS's 2nd birthday party for a bit. There has already been a bit of drama about the family being in the area; when is there not? I am considering inserting a bit of "truth" into conversations today; perhaps the opportunity will arise, and perhaps it will not. If it doesn't, that is fine as well. I am not responsible for their bad behavior.

Weezie, glad you are feeling better after your week's rest.

Hello to everyone! Have a good Saturday!

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

I try to get the leaves off the ground. I find leaving them on the grass kills out what's underneath.

I find that as long as I bind off loosely when I knit I'm fine. If I bind off tightly it "shrinks" that last edge. I'm so proud of my niece with her knitting. She just learned how and her stitches, both knitted and purled have a nice even tension to them. She wants me to show her how to cable. I'm always happy to share a new craft with them.

Have a great weekend

Good evening....

Yes, I'm still alive and in one piece! We had a great day with the kids and they were all so good. We took them to Barnes and Noble and turned them loose! They each found a book and we bought them. Actually, we didn't buy much of anything else. Brooke and I went to the Land's End Store in Sears. I got a top and she found a purse that had been $50 and was on sale for $12! She used her own money and got it!! It is a darling purse. I got ideas for Christmas and in the next couple of weeks Thomas and I are going back up and pick up a few things.

On another note...my grandfather had a lot of pins that he was awarded for selling insurance. My aunt had them (not sure why she had them!) but she gave them to me. Had no meaning to me and with mom gone, Thomas and I decided to see if they were worth anything. We sold them this morning and got some big bucks for them!! It will come in handy!

Weezie, glad that we finally got connected! And glad that you are feeling better. After we got off the phone, I thought about the antibiotics upsetting your gut. I'm sure that is it. We are down to 5 weeks until the retreat!! WOO HOO!!

Tammy, I love having the early morning hours to myself. I know that people think I'm crazy but I can get lots done with no interruptions. Glad that you got some sewing done.

WG, I rather like taking all the kids it is fun. They behaved very well today. But they are aging too!

Judy, hope that your trip was an easy one.

Weezie, about the leaves.....we don't leave them on the ground. We compost them or turn them over to the city. We've been told that they will kill the grass and spread "disease". Not sure so you might want to Google it.

I'm tired and need to get ready for bed. Slept in the car and Brooke said that I snored!! emoticon I just laughed and told her that she did too!!

Hi All,

Well I'm beginning to feel better. I can't believe I took the entire week off 'sick'. I've never done that but the boss said and the doctor said so I did. I must be feeling better as I went out and looked at work email today and my head is getting back in the game. I didn't give it a thought for several so knew I was sick. That's not like me. I'm sure this week will be interesting and I learned the boss went home sick today. I do hope she doesn't get what I have been through although I don't know what hit me. I thought it was the flu but never got the vomit part which I'm thankful for. My gut still hurts but not sure if it is from the antibiotics I'm on thru Sunday or something still lingering. At least I'm able to be upright and today I started Xmas shopping online. Now for the boxes to start arriving. I'll be doing little regular shopping and won't miss the crowds.

Tammy, glad you're sewing and enjoying yourself. I would like to get to that this weekend as well. Gotta get project for retreat ready so LG and I can get er done. Will be fun to see how different they turn out since we're making the same quilt but different focus fabrics. Will be fun!

Judy, hope your trip with the football team went well.

WG, sounds like fun with the grands and I agree - one on one is the way to go.

Weezie, how did Kelly's last ultrasound visit go. I remember you indicated you were going and I haven't gone back a week to see catch up on the thread. Sorry.

SS, are you packing and getting ready to leave? I hope you get out before the weather gets too bad. Has been pretty dreary and rain is back. The leaves are starting to come down.

DH and I go round and round as I'm of the mind that the leaves should be raked and be gone before the snow comes. He thinks we're doing more harm than good to the soil but doing so. He thinks we should let em be and in the spring rake/mulch what's left and this is good for the ground. Thoughts ladies?

PJ, have you had time in your 'she' cave? Are you knitting? I have gotten my first scarf long enough. Now to figure out how to bind off. I have a Craftsy class to review and see if I can figure out. My only thing is it says I should use a bigger needle. Well I already used '17' and don't know if there are any bigger. Might you?

Okay, I need to get to some other things I think. Do hope you all had a great day and wish you a wonderful weekend.

Hi, Seesters!


I guess I enjoyed the sewing so much yesterday that I wanted to wake up early - way early - and do some more! So I did... I also have done yard work all day and am now the proud owner of a small cultivator and have had some done on the air conditioner motor on my car. So I think I have had a very busy day.


So perhaps I can sleep tonight! emoticon

HI Seesters. Watching Biggest Loser. I enjoy it and there is a "local athlete" on this year. He is from DIL's town. Doing well also.

The chips were a hit. I'm glad I've found something that I can do that the others can enjoy. My kids like them so it works in many ways.

It sounds like everyone is having a "chill" day which is good. There has been some "puny" feeling stuff going around.

I love shopping with the grands but prefer one at a time. I've still got to take the Dragon out for a last burger before the snow flies.

I'm "on call" tomorrow and expect that I'll be working. It is overtime pay but I'll not be paid double for the 8 hours that will be call back and overtime. Shucks.

Have a great day. I'll try to catch up tomorrow night.

Evening, everyone.....

Been a long day with only 2 of the kids....Luke and Brooke. Carmen went to a friends house for the day. Tomorrow we are taking them shopping. I know....I'm nuts! emoticon What can I say??

I just need to get a few things and it will get them out of the house where they have been confined for most of the week due to the horrible weather we've had. It rained here again today until about 3p.m. UGH!!

I too have read your posts but don't have the time or the brain power tonight to answer them!
Oh, I did go up to my sewing room and Luke came in asked me why my sewing machine was so big. So I showed him what it would do and we sewed (embroidered) a bike! He picked it out of my designs and he picked out the thread colors. It turned out very pretty. He was so proud of it. He sat on my lap and said that he was having fun watching the machine work!!

Now I need to get to bed..... emoticon

Hello everyone:

I'm flying by (as usual) to say emoticon

I still have no word on whether or not the car will be ready when I head to Sis's on the 22nd. I suspect it won't be, but perhaps I'll be pleasantly surprised. I'm so looking forward to my trip to the (Quarter Horse) Congress in Columbus. It will be a long drive but my BIL will be doing most of it. We plan to leave in the wee hours of the 24th so we cross the border before the traffic pile-up starts *yawn*

Hello to everyone! I've read the posts but, as usual, I'm scrambling for time.

Hi, Seesters!


I began the day with some sewing after breakfast, and then went to the garden/leaf mulch job, and now you can see what I am doing. I hear the She Cave whispering my name again, though!


I happen to be working on a quilt - an easy one - for DB, using squares cut from the jeans that were cut from him when the paramedics were administering CPR, etc. I had some outdoor prints in a charm pack that I bought from Missouri Star Quilt Company awhile back that I am using for it as well. I attended a meeting with the Care Center team, my mom, and the two ladies that are DB's medical POAs on Tuesday. He has made great physical and ST memory progress, and will be released in a couple of weeks. It is just amazing to me how much better his movement is. He has progressed from a walker to a cane. I do not kid myself that his heart is not at all healthy, nor that he will make healthier choices, but it does appear that he will be able to live at home and may qualify for some services, and as that is what he wants, that is what I want for him.


The pannini does sound delicious, WG. Yum, yum! I am preparing a Cheeseburger Pie paleo recipe for our dinner. I'm not considering going paleo; I just thought it sounded good. LOL!


PJ, your trail walk sounds fantastic. I always look forward to my weekend walks which I can do at the middle school track right by the house. The surface is a nice change from the streets/sidewalks. I would likely like the trail walk as well.

Weezie2, how fun! It makes me smile to think about it.


Hello to everyone. Have a very good day.

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

I just finished a trail walk at our nearby lake. I havenít done that in months and it felt so good to be out and the sun is shining also. I have a hospice meeting to attend this afternoon, chiro appt and going to see my youngest son for a few minutes also. Tomorrow it is working in the yard giving it another day to dry out.

WG that paninni sounds delicious as well as the chips. Can you send me a to go order. LOL

Weez 2 your excitement is showing. LOL

Sharon when are you heading to AZ?

Happy Thursday!

We've got another rainy day here too.

I ordered Kelly"s crib this morning. It should be delivered to her house the end of next week. Woo Hoo!!! We're getting closer and this G'ma can't wait. I went to Bath and Body works yesterday and picked up the game prizes for the shower.

We have 6 more craft fairs this year so you know what I'll be doing later.

Have a Great Day!

Morning

Still overcast but at least it isn't raining right this minute. I have lots of errands to run and things to do so just popping in to say Hi!

Last night's dinner out was fun. I tried so hard to be good but slipped a little!

Hoping to do better at tonight's Community Pot Luck!

Evening all. Worked today and it was a good day. Had an olive pannini for lunch. It was amazing. Almost repeated it tonight on a bed of lettuce.

Making potato chips in the microwave. it isn't hard and is much healthier than the chips I was buying a couple of years ago. A little time consuming but I'm making a batch for my friends who like the veggie chips.

PJ, loved the photo of Tony. He is doing exactly what he should--live life fully. He'll do fine. I'm glad you are getting your dad's meds taken care of.

SS, enjoy your last dinners out. I'm sure your kids will stay in touch so it will be good. Talking is important and you do a lot of that.

Tammy, it's funny how people think one thing when it is totally another. It isn't always easy to read people. Glad the BP meds are working better.

Weezie2, hope the weather is better.

LG, it has to be nice to rest and recover a little. Lunch sounds like a lot of fun.

Got to go to bed. Have a nice day. Hi to everyone.

I got a haircut yesterday it had been way to long since my last cut. I really do like my new hair dresser. She is easy to talk to, give a good haircut and half the price as my old one. A WIN WIN all the way around.

I got my shingles vaccination and flu shot yesterday so now have 2 sore arms but not too bad. I dropped off some paperwork to the hospice volunteer office and have a couple of assignments coming up in the next 2 weeks. They havenít had anything for me in a few months so this is good to do something again.

I think I have a lady to do dadís meds while we are gone just need to meet her in person and introduce her to dad and make sure we are all comfortable with each other. I will arrange that meeting probably next week.

It was dry enough that I got out in the yard and cut back some perennials and pulled up some annuals. Now it is time to go and watch the KC Royals play baseball.

Tammy I love that Tony is ready and willing to tackle any and all things he wants to do. And so far he has accomplished them all. He is anxious to go deer hunting now that he has this better prosthesis that makes movements more natural.

Sharon I feel the same way you do about the kids. We know and so do they that one of these days we wonít be able to travel like we do now. So we are going to do it while we can and get together with them when we are home

Good Morning!

I don't worry too much about our relationship with the kids as I know they really love us. We have raised them to be independent so I can't complain. Right now their life revolves around their kids and that's the way it should be. We have talked about us leaving for the winters and they know it is only a few short years and then our health will prevent us from enjoying our treks.
I guess I just waited too long to invite them over that last day and now they all have plans. Oh well, I'll make the BBQ's and see if anyone shows up to say goodbye.

This evening we are going out to dinner with the four couples we are closest to in our community as our last get together. It will be fun!

So far I've been able to be really good on my eating this week but I'm eating out tonight and tomorrow night is our Community PotLuck which also will be a test to my willpower! Wish me luck and strength for the next couple of days.
