Yes it is hot and humid and that is one reason that you keep the windows covered and to block out the sun and heat.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I've only visited Florida for one week and that was in September (lots of rain showers) but I remember how hot, sunny and humid it was.

I just wish that I could get natural light into my home but that would make it hot too since I live in FL and when the windows have the sun on them they get real hot.

Mine too, Dorothy. I have really deep eaves and not much light comes in. I hate to have all my lights on but sometimes I just do.

I am watching that too. They are brighter than florescent bulbs so it is easier to see too. I hate to have a dull light and it makes it easier to get around when it gets dark. My house is dark because there is not much light in the house even during the daytime.

I know, that's a big reason for me. I hate that they need to be disposed of in a special facility if you're doing it "by the book" and I have been keeping my receipts and writing on the housing of the bulb when it was purchased/installed. It'll be interesting to see what their actual "life" is, too.

Kelly that is what I am doing too. Changing my fluorescents to LED's. It seems that the fluorescents contain mercury and lead inside them and if you break them then you have that stuff in your house forever unless you spend over $2000 to get it cleaned up and vacuuming it just spreads it around your house faster.

I accidentally bought some of the "daylight" LED lights. Boy, they are bright!! They're more expensive than regular incandescent but I'm trying to switch all my lights (slowly) over to LEDs. I've started buying the Cree lights since they are made in USA instead of China (no offense China, but I'm trying to buy more USA made products since I live here)

Lisa they are light bulbs that imitate real light and they do not glow after you turn them off. It is allot cheaper than buying. They are bright.

How cute Lisa. I think I've said it before but I love Siamese cats. The first 2 cats we had when I was growing up were siamese (Seal Points) and I've had a Lilac Point and Seal Point since we've been married. They are such cute kitties. Luckily you woke up before having the mess on your bed!!

We have kittens! Daisy went into labor about 1 am, in our bed! Luckily, she woke me up and I got her in the box. She didn't like that, so I laid some towels in the bathroom and put her in there. I stayed with her until I saw the water break and then went back to bed. Of course, I couldn't sleep so when I heard the first kitten cry, I checked on her. She had it under control so I went back to bed and dreamed that she had 11 kittens! She had 6. 3 black and 3 white. The white ones will probably end up Siamese, they've all got pink ears and legs.

One of our outside cats that was pregnant has disappeared and the other had one kitten and it has disappeared.

I've never heard of 'Daylight lights'. What are they? I don't want something that glows all night, I sleep better when it's completely dark.

I've priced some of the SAD lights and see them anywhere from $50 to $350. I'm sure I'll find something I can afford. I don't feel like I can 'afford' to go through another winter feeling so low. I get absolutely NOTHING done.

Sun's out again today but the wind is blowing and expected to for the next several days.

Have you tried Daylight lights that they make? That might work for you. I don't need those type of lights since I do live in FL and it is sunny most of the time.

Hope that you find one Lisa and that it is cheap because they do cost allot if it is new. Just priced them and they are $229 and up and that one is on sale at that price, normally it is $329. Amazon has lights but not sure if they are for SAD. They are allot cheaper for them.

I haven't heard any particulars but I know that they seem to work for those who tend to be affected by SAD. I had my Vitamin D level checked and I should be taking at least 5000 intl units per day but I haven't been doing it consistently lately. I should start up again but it kind of got put back on the counter and other stuff comes up and next you know it's a month or two later!

I've bought one Himalayan Pink Salt lamp and put it in our bedroom to see if I can cut down on free radicals in the air in the house. I'm going to buy more and spread them around in other living areas like my living room and mud room areas. I love the constant pink glow during the night.

emoticon Kelly! I didn't realize it was coming up so soon!

I finally feel human again! The sun came out and I warmed up! I am in the market for a SAD lamp; if anyone uses or has any friends who use one, I'd love any recommendations. I think Tom and I both need one. I've ordered some Vitamin D also but I really think the lamp will help in the winter.

Got my dog bathed this evening but he still stinks! guess I didn't get him clean enough.

Hi everyone! I just joined this group and saw this was the spot that was hopping so I thought I would introduce myself here. My name is Sheila and I join SP about 1 month ago and I am making progress slowly but surely and I just love the community. When I spotted this group I knew it would be a good place to get some great tips and encouragement. I have a large family with many different nutritional needs from my need to moderate sweets, my husband's high cholesterol, our kids high calorie and my MIL puree diet...lol sounds intimidating when I put it all out there but I'm trying to get it all together so can all be healthy

Yeah, I'm ready for spring as well! Yesterday was ridiculously windy and today wasn't much better! We have been to Watertown SD and back since 6 am yesterday! What a trip! My niece graduated LPN school last night so we went up for that and then stopped by a friend's south of Sioux Falls on the way home. SD is a really pretty state this time of year! I'm wondering how it is that they have no dead grass sticking up over the green grass the way we do here in NE? Funny the things you notice on an 8 hour ride through the countryside.

We had some small tornados last week but the damage was minimal (branches, fences, etc) so I feel we did well. Oklahoma seems to get pounded with tornados. We've had so much rain that I had to mow today and we just mowed on Saturday.

We had some bad storms around town overnight last night. Northwest Omaha had so much hail (about 6 inches of hail) that they had to get out the snow plows to clear the streets this morning. Localized flooding as a result. At least it doesn't sound like it was very big hail.

No thanks Lisa don't want cats. You can get them spade(not sure if that is the correct thing) that way you don't get more cats.

Yeah, we might! 2 of them are barn cats, so it won't be that bad. One of them had kittens last night and only one of the 2 survived. The other 2 mamas are pretty young so there's a chance we won't see very many live babies.

Warm and windy today!

Wow, Lisa. 3 cats expecting! You'll have kittens coming out of everywhere!! My hubby won't let me get another cat after ours is gone. He's tired of the litter boxes and cat fur (I'm the one that cleans the boxes, though)

Well, I ended up working most of the day. But I ended up bidding on some stuff and left before it was over. The guy who runs the auction company is retiring, for REAL this time, so we probably won't have any for awhile. One of his 'helpers' is going to take over, but I don't know when he might get up and running. The gals who really run these dinners said today that they raised the price of the food because we really aren't making any money off of them anyway! Well, one reason they don't make any money is because they make so much food that they have a lot left over. The leftovers are just given away to the helpers. I think they'd make money if they'd cut the amount of food and actually run out. There was still a lot of pie left today, partly because the auction helpers bought a cake to present to the owner and offered it to anyone who wanted some, but partly because they just had way too many to begin with.

Oh well, not my problem. My problem right now is general malaise, lack of energy, and a tendency to overeat. Also, 3 pregnant cats. Anyone want a kitten?

How long will you be at the stand? If it is just a couple of hours then I would do it and then go enjoy the rest of the day.

What a dilemma! I'm making 4 pies after work tomorrow for the Legion Aux. auction dinner on Sat. and I told them that I would help in the food stand as well. It's supposed to be 80 degrees on Sat., 65 on Sun. and then go downhill from there. Should I bail and enjoy the day? Decisions...

We've had a couple of inches of rain last night and today. It was a light rain so hopefully it soaked in really good.

Well be careful with that ceiling too. It was nice here again today but starting to get more humid. Might have to turn on the AC soon. Got more of the digging done but this time did a different one that was not around roots. Also got the bittersweets off today and juiced them and put it in the freezer for later use.

We didn't get much snow; just enough to make it a little wetter. It's been nice and sunny the last couple days, naturally. I worked yesterday then took today off again to help my mom take her brother for an eye appt. He's in a nursing home and has stability issues; he falls a lot. Tom has been going with her, but he's 67 and I'm just not sure I like the idea of them being out and about with him.

I got my pie crusts made, but didn't get the ceiling torn apart yet. Might try something on the outside before I do that. It'll have to come apart eventually and replace some of it because it's been leaking for so long.

Hope you didn't get much in the way of snow, Lisa. We had rain, light, almost all day long on Monday and today was cool and cloudy. I'm ready to get my gardens in and get stuff planted and growing!

Yeah, Dorothy, I think they do. Fortunately, for me, it's a short trip! emoticon

Thanks, Kelly! It goes really well with the loveseat, too. I couldn't have matched the colors better if I'd tried.

Got today off, too. Need to make some pie crusts for a Legion Aux. dinner on Sat. Going to try to get the ceiling taken apart, too. Won't be outside much; it's snowing and cold. Wind's finally gone down a little though.

Have a great week!

Well, I got the table put together last night and we hauled the loveseat in this afternoon. We had to put it together, too. Good thing it was pretty easy to do; the instructions seem to be for something else, they made no sense at all.

Thanks EJ but I won't drink mine at night because it is made with caffeine in it and that will keep me up all night. I keep the one that I make out but once it is done I put it in the fridge. This is my first time doing that and it is a lesson of learning. What do you do with the first scoby that I bought.

We did the same thing and got a set of sofa and love seat (with the console) in the faux leather type of material. We really love it (place to store the controllers!!) and it doesn't gather cat fur!

We're back! Had a great time! We were looking for a reclining love seat and ended up getting one with a console (which we said we didn't want). It's a faux leather kind of material (I said I didn't want leather). We spent a couple hundred more than we wanted to but I think we'll like it anyway. Gets us a little closer and the cat hair won't stick to it like it does to regular fabric. I also got an end table for Tom's side of the loveseat. It's a 2 piece thing, each shaped like a puzzle piece. They had 3 of them put together to form a coffee table and it was really cool. I'll post a pic when I get it put together.

Now that 'tax season' is over, I'm hoping to get some more exercise done and go through some of the web sites that I've been adding to my favorites. Weather's pretty crappy this weekend and I don't have to go back to work until Tues. so I guess I'll get some house cleaning done. Windows need washing, floor needs vacuuming, ceiling is coming apart to figure out where the leak is. We had almost 2 inches in the rain gauge when we got home. Good thing we put out the buckets; 2 of them were almost full!
