Wow it has been a long time since anyone has posted here. Still working through my IBS issues and found a very helpful book that has helped to make some improvements in how I feel on the over all. Working with a herb, Slippery Elm Bark powder, it seems to be a healing and as versatile as Aloe Vera. So I will be taking a 1/4 tsp daily and see how it goes.

Brightest Blessings!

Had a rough Monday. The septic tank had to be emptied. Ugh Sometime we are probably going to have to get new drainage pipes.

Hubby took me out for our anniversary to Wolf Bay Lodge in Elberta, AL. One of my favorite restaurants. I had scallops and shrimp. They make the best lobster bisque. Yummy!

Going to be another hot and humid day here in Florida. And the mosquitoes are a pain.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Tes, it sounds like the problem is being narrowed down. Still sending healing thoughts your way.

Not much new here. It's been hot and humid with thunderstorms thrown in for good measure. LO

I am back to being able to eat, though I am still taking it easy...the only new thing since the hospital is my IBS med. So that must be the issue...makes sense with all the stomach trouble I have had over that past few years.

It's a hard way to loose weight but a positive look to your troubles. If it is irritable bowl syndrome why now? I know there are things you can do to ease it. Still sending healing thoughts your way.

It's been hot very hot here in P'cola. We got some a/cs put in and it's better in the house. not much else going on.

Happy Memorial day everyone!

Home from the hospital last night, they did and upper GI procedure yesterday and did not find anything again...they think this may be irritable bowel syndrome. Meanwhile I have to wait a month to get in with a GI specialist and be on a liquid diet too...I guess this will help me to lose weight anyway!

It's hot and humid here, and my DDL is coming over to help me with some chores. I must have slept on my right arm wrong again as it really hurts when I try and lift it. Ugh. My radish and pok choi seeds sprouted and I am hoping I get some plants from them.

I hope everyone will have a wonderful day.

Well the ultrasound showed nothing...and on the way home from the ultrasound I had a horrible episode of pain, dizziness, major hot flash, and got short of breath, ended up stopping at a grocery store, going to the bathroom for 10 minutes and then had a staff person call an ambulance for me. They stabilized me and sent me home.

I ended up back in the ER Friday night and was admitted...had my colonoscopy today and still no reason for my pain and diarrhea...UHG!!! Frustrating! Hubby brought me his laptop, so I was able to check email and log on here to check in with you all...they may send me home today or may keep me a little longer depending on what they determine is the next best step. So sorry that I have been MIA, but I have been being kept busy here in the hospital.

Brightest Blessings!

Tes, so sorry you are going through this. I have to have my colonoscopy this year and know what it's like to prep for it. Not fun at all. I read on how to make it easier by not eating red meats, and keeping the foods soft like soup.

Worked outside most of the weekend. While warm there has been nice breezes. This week I have to have a cavity filled and blood work done. Whoopee! LOL

I hope everyone will have a nice day.

I have headaches, stomach pains, nausea, and diarrhea...and they don't know what it is yet...today is my ultrasound and I am on a no food or drink diet until it is over...not too tough as I actually feel better not eating, though I would still love to have water at least...but no such luck. Saturday will start my diet for the colonoscopy...wish I could be this dedicated to my weight loss plan...need to figure out why they should be so different.

Brightest Blessings!

It could be partly stress related, but it has been going on too long for it to be the cause. None of the kids are sick...just me.

The weather men/women sometimes need a kick in the rear...I think they start getting lazy and/or too big for their britches, so the weather kicks them to remind them they are not infallible.

Tes, so sorry about you being sick. Is any one else having trouble? Could it be stress related? I hope you get some answers quickly.

We are going to have another storm come through. They are predicting more flash floods but I wonder if they aren't just covering their behinds since the last storm's prediction was under rated.

Just doing a few things around the house. Getting hot and humid.

Sorry I have been gone so long...it has been a rough couple weeks for me. I have had some bowel issues for the last couple months now and it has gotten much worse of late...abdominal pains that are constant and very painful, nausea...going in for an ultrasound tomorrow and then a colonoscopy at some point...ended up in the ER last week due to the abdominal pain...it started last Wednesday...was so nauseated yesterday I only ate saltines and a few French fries, plus water and 7UP. Not feeling much better today, but thought I should try to eat something more substantial, so I had eggs and toast with apple juice...we'll see how it goes...I have not had any vomiting, nor blood in my stool, so they seem baffled by the cause of my issues...I am so tired of feeling like this.

Today is a pretty day, but warm. This weekend there is suppose to be storms coming through which we don't need right now as everything is still saturated from the last storm. Oh well.

I have to go in a couple of weeks to get a cavity filled. yuck. But at least I have a decent dentist who makes sure my mouth is numb really well. LOL

I hope everyone is doing well.

What a storm that came through here. We received between 19 and 26 inches of rain in places. There are roads that are out and major flooding in areas. People were told to stay home unless emergency personal. At least the house we bought doesn't flood. The water recedes pretty quickly.

I kind of like the new team page. Makes it a bit easier to navigate.

I hope everyone is staying safe.

Tes, I hope you get some answers on why you are not feeling well. Like how the little ones let you sleep in.

We are getting a major thunderstorm in our area. Thunder woke me up at 4 this morning, and hubby was already up getting ready for work. The roads flood here so he went in early. I told him to call me when he got there. He arrived safely. Whew. I am staying home inside today.

I hope everyone will be safe today.

Met with the realtor and we will continue to try and sell with a much lower price and try and work with the bank once we get an offer...hopefully soon.

Been getting a few painting projects accomplished...feels good to be moving forward on the farm again.

Denise - HURRAY for farm stands...gotta love the fresh produce. You may want to check out any local CSA's (Community Supported Agriculture) They allow you to buy into their farm annually and then when the produce and crops start coming in, you pick up your basket of goodies weekly.

Tes, at least you have that option. I know it won't be easy, and I'll send prayers your way to help you sell your house.

Enjoying the weather these past couple of days. My daughter-in-law will be over and we'll work out in the yard. I have some plants I want to plant and a couple of other things.

I think I am over the sugar cravings. I cooked steak, baked potato and had sliced fresh tomatoes that I had bought at the Flora Bama stand near me. I don't seem to be able to grow tomatoes for some reason. At least at the Flora Bama I can get tomatoes that are local and taste like tomatoes. Going to start eating more salads and vegetables.

I hope everyone is doing well.

We had not wanted to rent our house, but we have learned a few things that have changed our mind a bit and we are now looking into it and keeping our options open. We realize we have a high asking price, but circumstances are such that we cannot take a loss on the house...so renting will give us time to get the mortgage paid down and then sell when maybe the market has improved some more and when we won't have to lose money on it.

Brightest Blessings!

Tes, couldn't you rent out the house instead? I hope you sell your home soon. I think there is a statue of a saint that if you bury it in your yard of the home you want to sell it helps. I can't remember which one.

Staying cool on the temps so I am enjoying it. Just doing a bit of cleaning and decluttering.

This morning we are having a major rainstorm. I was planning on going to the commissary but since some of the roads flood I am staying home.

Hubby and I went to get stuff to make the women at his place of work Easter Baskets. Then we went out to dinner.

So sorry about plumbing problems and mail problems. But glad your realtor will have help in selling your home.

After a beautiful weekend the weather turned cold, and rainy. Ugh. Just doing a few chores and such.

I hope everyone is having a nice day.

Plumber came back in the afternoon and finished the plumbing. Contractor was overbooked so is supposed to be here this morning to check the shower. Let's hope he can make it and not call and say he can't...I want a nice shower tonight.

We did a temp change of address so all the mail would come here so I could pay the bills, though we have not received much...so I called USPS and was on hold for 25 minutes when someone finally came on the line...I picked up the phone which I had on speaker and managed to hang up on them...UHG...so now I am back on the phone and on hold one more time. SO exhausting.

Good news for me...I talked to our realtor and told her we are thinking of switching to someone more local to our house to sell it and she said she got a call from a realtor in the cities asking if she would like help selling the property and she told him yes but would need to talk to her client. I think it is the same guy I talked to and made an appointment with to work with next...so this is a win-win for everyone and no ones feelings will be hurt and maybe we can get this place sold more quickly!!!

Brightest Blessings!

I didn't...though it would have been nice to do that...just wish I could sleep in when I want to so I could do those things...little guy still gets me up at 5:30am every day...has been 11 months now of this, my body is getting more used to it, but I still hate it. That and with my perimenopause issues, losing sleep is not a good idea.

Shower is done, will be taking the first shower in it tonight!!! still have a couple more things to do in the bathroom to finish it all up. The contractor couldn't finish the sink as one of the shut-off valves is broke, so we will have the plumber replace both as they are old once he gets here this week.

Brightest Blessings!

Cloudy and cold here, and the Eclipse starts at 11:55p. As always Home Girls are going to be Celebrating Lady Luna. We tend not to let stuff get in our way of walking the path of an Earth Based religion!!

Any body going to go out tonight and look to see if the blood moon is visible? I am not sure I will since it is real early tomorrow morning for me, and it's suppose to be raining. Would love to see some pictures though.

Had a nice weekend. The weather was really nice, but now we are suppose to be getting thunderstorms today.

Hubby finally got his steps put on his truck. Now I can get in and out without having to carry steps with us. I am too short and fat to get in and out without them. LOL

I hope everyone will have a nice day.

Denise...wish I could watch that...it is not on Hulu or Netflix, only HBO so I will have to wait to see it, I am however reading the first book and am about 2/3 of the way through it. Looking forward to getting the second book and reading it.

Spent my weekend cutting down and cutting up trees. Had 2 black walnuts to cut up and 6 more smaller trees to cut down that were around the foundation of one of the out buildings. Lots of work and a good workout.

Brightest Blessings!

Tes, sounds like something in a movie with the trucks and snow holding up your shopping. It sounds like you'll get a lot of exercise down at the farm.

Had a laid back day yesterday. It was a rainy/misty kind of day, so we watch the Game of Thrones marathon that was playing. It's funny how you miss things when you rewatch something. Watched the first episode of the new season which looks like it's going to be interesting. I kind of know what will happen since I read the books, but things do get changed.

I hope everyone is having a nice day.

Well I have really gotten in the workout today...snow blowing for an hour, snow shoveling for 15 minutes (funny story), and vacuuming for 1 hour 15 minutes. I still have more work to get done and am nearly at 10,000 steps for the day as well.

So funny story, was trying to leave this morning to go grocery shopping...got the kids all loaded in the van, had to clear the van off of snow, put the shovels in the back just in case and then the trash truck comes with UPS right behind them. UPS guy was mad that the trash truck driver could not go over 25 mph down the road and told me it took him 10 minutes to go the mile from the highway to my driveway. I took the package from him and headed back to the garage to put it in there until I got home. Went to climb in my van and saw the UPS truck back way up to get a running start and get around the trash truck...he left, but the trash truck got stuck in my driveway backing up to turn around...so out I come from the van, get the shovels and the ice melt and head down to the end of the driveway to help them get unstuck so that I could finally leave to go grocery shopping...what a fiasco!!!

Brightest Blessings!

I woke up about 2 this morning, and could not go back to sleep. We get up at a quarter to 5 so hubby can go to work. If I get up and go out of the bedroom it wakes hubby up and he comes looking for me to make sure I'm okay. I think I fell back to sleep about 20 minutes before the alarm went off. It figures. If I didn't have commissary this morning I'd have gone back to bed after hubby left for work.

I hope everyone one will have a fantastic day!

My eye appointment went okay. I really like my doctor and his staff. My prescription changed but my eyes are good. So I will be getting new glasses.

Today I am going to make a menu and grocery list for next week's meals. I plan on going to the commissary tomorrow morning.

I hope everyone will be safe and happy today.

I have been very busy myself with so many projects yet to complete around here...managed to buy a few more things I need to complete a few more projects. I have so much I would like to get done before Easter, but I don't think I will get them all done...biggest one is selling my house or having my mom's house sell this month!!! Please keep sending those energies that a buyer will come along for one or both houses.

Tes, So glad you are now moved to the farm and have access to the outside i.e. internet. I remember all of the moves I've done and it's so gratifying to see the stuff put away little by little.

Hubby had to work this weekend and it sucks since we were going to the Elberta Sausage Festival. But at least it's also in October so I hope we get to that one. Now I'm just hanging around the house doing this and that.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

So sorry I have been gone so long...moved me, the kids, and the animals to the farm last week, had projects to complete at both places, and finally got internet, phone and cable at the farm last Friday...so feeling less like I am on Gilligan's Island around here. Still have plenty of projects to complete, but at least I got 3 shelving units today at Menards so I was able to get some thing organized and off the floor and out of the piles. Feels good to see the list getting smaller around here, plus the place looking a bit neater too.

Brightest Blessings!

Well the corned beef and cabbage was okay. I don't think I'll be doing it again unless I have a really, really good recipe. We love cabbage "fried". I cook it in a bit of butter and olive oil with chopped onion, garlic, grated carrot and a bit of salt & pepper. I like coleslaw also. I am thinking of using shredded cabbage in my tacos. In Mexico that's what they use instead of lettuce.

Going to do some chores around the house and get outside to plant some seeds like peas, Pak Choi, and hot peppers. I also have a few plants to pot.

I hope everyone will have a great day.
