I am so sick today I'm having trouble functioning. I've done pretty much nothing but sleep since yesterday. My sugar level is low, my stomach hurts and I have a headache that's killing me. I just wanted to catch up on my emails real quick.

I have been out working in my garden and flower bed most of the day. Weather has been really nice although a bit humid. My hands and kness are hurting today but still managed to get all the weeding done. I guess that means we have a storm moving in within the next couple days.

I've had company for the last two weeks. We've done a ton of sight seeing and walking. I'm exhausted and ready to get back on my diet program. Vacations are fun but they play havic on your diet. I hope your all doing well. I'll chat more with you on saturday when my company leaves.

Sandi I hope you and your Mom had a wonderful day together.
Our weather today has been wonderful. It's in the 70's with a breeze blowing. I just love it.
Taking my son to the animal shelter today. He's going to volunteer as a dog walker so he has to go to an orientation today. I'm thinking of joining him just to get my walks in.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Good Morning Team. Thank goodness it is a little cooler today. I did get my steps in yesterday by walking round and round in my condo with the AC on. Was listening to a book on tape so that did help me from getting dizzy. Have to go through my coupons and get out to do some grocery shopping. One good thing about shopping, I can get a lot of my steps in without really being aware of it. Got on the scale this morning and it wasn't good. Needless to say I am a little bummed, but hopefully some kind of progress will happen soon. Need to get going so will check out the posts later. Hope everyone is having a great day. emoticon emoticon

A gorgeous day on Long Island today. I spend every Tuesday with my mom running whatever errands she needs (hairdresser, groceries, bank, pharmacy, etc.) Then back to her house where I pay the bills and lay out her pills. It's our day together every week.

emoticon emoticon Another very hot, humid and windy day might even get to 100. It was already 81 when I got up this morning. Our halls are not air-conditioned so there will be no walking in the halls today. It is either go to the mall or walk in my unit (one bedroom unit). With a book on tape it might just be my option. I am happy that my "Shampoo Alert" put a smile on your faces. By the way, for everyone that lost some weight be assured that I gained it. Got on the scale this morning, I didn't realize that I had that much fun or was that out of control and am really paying for it. I probably should walk out in the heat and sweat some of this added poundage off. Don't think that is going to happen, but I will be walking some place for sure.

Sandi, how fun to meet with your two former colleagues. I am sure the stories go on and on. At one time in one of my lives, I was an elementary school secretary, but have lost touch as I moved out of the district. There is group, seven or eight of us, that meet once a month for lunch. We all volunteered at one of the hospitals here in Minneapolis. We all live in the metro area, but try to find a place in the middle.

Vicki, not sure where you live but it must be someplace close to me as our weather sounds the same.

Have a great day everyone and take care of yourself. emoticon emoticon

Went out to lunch today with two former colleagues from my teaching days. We try to get together for lunch once a month. We live really far apart now, so we have found an Applebee's about midway. Our lunch turned into a 3 1/2 hour gab fest, but so much fun - and there are plenty of things to eat that are good choices. I can't wait till next month.

The humidity is getting to me but I am hanging in there! On the good side it is making me eat better...LOL I have had almost all cold foods today, breakfast was a big salad and then dinner was fruit and soup. Lots of water and some iced tea.

The weather is forecasted to only get worse the next couple of days with hotter temsp and more humidity. Looks like I am going to have to figure a way to exercise inside.

Went to a hot rod show with hubby yesterday in Pennsylvania. Considering the fact that we live on the end of Long Island in New York, it took us 5 hours in each direction to drive. We got up at 4:30 a.m. and got there by 11. We walked all day (my pedometer read 14,800+ steps). But I ate sensibly and I was glad to see .8 lbs. weight loss this week.
We had dinner at Applebee's. I had the WW chipotle lime chicken - only 490 calories - and absolutely excellent.

Hi everyone, I had a wonderful Saturday. My daughter and I spent the day shopping and went out for a free lunch. We each had a coupon that made it free. We then picked up my son and went to the movies to see the new X-Men movie. It was loads of fun. My only complaint of the day was I couldn't sleep last night. I didn't fall asleep until 5am. My husband felt bad for me so he let me sleep until 1 pm. Not to great because now I doubt I'll sleep tonight. Hopefully I'm wrong.

We are having some nice wether for a change and no rain for the last few days but on the other hand the humidity has soared. That I could do without.

I walked my first 5K race yesterday with a couple of my Spark buddies from the local team and it was a lot of fun. Teh length was not the problem it was the humidity. I know without them being with me I probably would not have made it.Had my meds with me from breathing and had to take some along the way because of the high humidity. But I made it! Even made it back across campus (the walk ended on the Notre Dame campus) with one buddy for DH to pick us up. I knew I could not have made it back to downtown. If the weather would have been nice and humidity low we would have tried to wakl back. So glad I talked DH into dropping me so that we would have a car if things did not work out. Heck the walk across campus was almost a mile it's self. 2 of the other members just made it in before the race was "black flagged" aand stopped due to humidity. They went out picking folks up that had not made it in yet. So it was pretty bad. I guess I am glad I did not know how bad it was until I crossed the finish line. I might have chickened out..LOL

I did not lose anything this week but then I did not gain either. Maybe it was all the water I have been drinking for the last couple of days with the heat and humidity. We will see next week!

I hope everyone has had a great weekend and I wish all weight loss this week!

FVHORVATH like you we are having nice weather of course it's not suppose to last. The weekend however is suppose to be a great one. I plan on getting out and enjoying it with my daughter and son.
I'm so happy I weighed in and lost 1.6 pounds this week so I'm going out to celebrate. No food rewards. I think I'm going to go try on some new clothes just for fun.
I hope all of you have a great weekend.

It's been a wild and crazy week at work! No time to get on computer at work and I am so tired by the time I get home I just drop in the recleiner.

The last couple of days have been wonderful weather wise and tomprrpw is suppose ot be another nice day also but with the humidity rising. So I got my tail in gear and got all the grass mowed tonight. Great cardio but still had to take a few little breaks to get through. But it's done for a little while depending on how much rain we are to get on Saturday.

I hope everyone has had a great day today and a better one tomorrow!

Sandi Thanks for the well wishes. Sorry to hear about your car taking so long to get fixed.
I called my stomach doctor and he can't see me until the 21st so I'm looking at a long miserable June.
Hope everyone else is doing fine. I have a ton of paperwork to shred so I'll chat with you all tomorrow.

SOSMEGOD - Hope you feel better.
Insurance agent inspected the truck today - will fax his estimate to the body shop tonight - but the earliest we can get it fixed will be June 27. Good thing we have my car. So after I ran around all day like a chicken with my head cut off, I actually sat down and worked on my knitting - it's great therapy.

Good afternoon everyone. I'm not feeling well today. My stomache is giving me all kinds of problems. I was sick last night and ended up having to take extra medication so I could sleep. I'm suppose to walk today but don't know if I'll be able to. I am going to try though, a short walk is better then none.
Sandi I hope everything works out for you with the insurance company.

Good Morning Team! It is a beautiful sunny day and finally the wind has died down. I have a ton of things to do around the condo - I hadn't realized how bad it is looking. Need to do some cleaning before the health department is called.

I told you about my lovely little song birds - well, today I have discovered why they are here. They are trying to build nests in both of my hanging plants. That happened a couple of years ago and I lost the plants. Because of the nest and the eggs I couldn't water the plants. For the time being I just took them down much to the scolding of the little birds, but they can build their nests in the trees of which we have plenty. I know I sound like a old crab, but I don't want to lose my beautiful hanging plants.

Sandi just you just love those insurance companies?

Hope everyone is having a lovely day. emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone! I am getting a late start today and have much to do so this it really short. Just as I was typing this I had two little song birds perched on one of my plant hooks singing to me. I don't know what kind they are, but they have a beautiful song. Talk about a day brightener. Well, as I was saying short but sweet. Have a great rest of the day and/or evening - stay safe - and give someone a smile. emoticon emoticon

Good Morning Team! Another rainy cloudy day with threats of bad weather later on in the day. Guess I will just settle in - do some walking in the halls listening to my latest book on tape - catch up on my magazines and watch the rain. Today is a good day to reflect on what this day means, Memorial Day, I watch a program last night on TV honoring our armed forces. There were songs, tributes to those gone, to the families who are waiting and to the families that know their loved ones will not be coming back, and to all who are serving now.

Got up early and got the onions sets planted and the gutters on the garage clean. Storm came in shorly after. Been setting around watching the Indy 500 and noe the NASCAR race. Had a great lunch but supper was a bit more than I would have liked. Trying to stay away since nothing is really going on but I know if I fall asleep now I will be up at 3am!

Hi to the team! A cloudy overcast day, but that makes for some good reading time. Just finished walking my condo hall will need to do it a couple more times today to at least get my goal steps in. Patio is all planted - just need some sun to help everything start growing.

Sandi, sorry to hear about your fender bender - great that you were not hurt. Had a few of my own, in fact, I totalled a rental car down in Florida several years ago. I only ended up with cuts on my elbows from crawling out the window. Thank the Lord for seat belts. All the insurance business, etc, was a pain plus increasing my insurance for three years.

Sosmegod, I had a walking partner for a time, but then it was hard to coordinate our walking times, so I just do my own thing when I want too.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe rest of the weekend.

Hi everyone! I am having a laid back day. This morning we had the coffee group at one of the younger member's home. We had a dutch breakfast (her husband is from Holland). Starbucks has been our meeting place for I can't even remember so it is really fun doing something different once in a while. After went to the cemetery to put flowers on my Mom's, a great aunt's and my husband's graves. Was going to wait for Memorial Day, but the weather doesn't sound like it will be a very nice day.

This morning on my way to coffee - there was a street about 15 blocks long (along a golf course) where there were American flags just about 6 feet apart and every third flag was the black one for those Missing in Action. All along the fence of the golf course they had small American flag almost every two inches. It was a very impressive sight and certainly reminded you to pray and honor all who serve and have served to protect us.

Came home finished planting the patio, took a nap and going to do nothing. It is really that kind a day for me. Wishing everyone a safe weekend and will catch up with everyone tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

Hubby got us into a fender bender - not his fault - we got T-boned. We're both fine, but it kind of ruined the day.

I am like you Sandi I have no one to walk with either. It would be nice to have a partner but for now I depend on my treadmill. I put in a good movie and lose myself in it. It works for now.

Wish I had someone around here to walk with - but I either go it alone or depend on the treadmill - and either way rely on my ipod for company.

Wa able to get out and walk last night with a couple of Sparkers from the local team. We have walked on Fridays ( weather permitting) from spring time will into the fall for a couple of years now. It fun to get together and walk with firends, it makes time go by fast and before we know it we have walked at least 3 miles. It has been a great way to start a weekend and it relaxs you from the stress from work. We share stories, problems, recipes and always have a laugh or two. Sometimes all 4 of us will be together and we have walked with just 2 of us. But it is always fun.

I have figured a way to get a little more in my garden without having to dig any more up! I got some onion set for some green onions to use as a border! I knew I would get more things for the garden! Now to try and figure a way to get in some cucumbers!

to everyone! Have been out and about most of the day. Attended a funeral of a husband of one the girls I grew up with about a thousand years ago. Have not been in touch for years so wasn't sure I would even be remembered. My husband and I spent many happy times with them and their children, but such a long time ago. Beside between a celebration of Earl's life, it was a reunion with many people from my past. I am so happy that I had seen the obituary in the paper yesterday and knew that I had to go today. Had good conversations and promised to keep in touch.

Later went to my favorite nursery to buy the last of the flowers for my patio. To my surprise after my purchase, my points entitled me to a $20 free purchase. Went back and got a beautiful Hibiscus. It is raining again so will finish the patio tomorrow (hopefully it will start raining sometime soon).

Time to think about feeding my face so will close for now - wishing everyone a pleasant evening and/or day wherever you are. emoticon emoticon

I envy you guys with the gardens. I'm one of those people that kill all plants. I either over water them or under water them. I've even tried planting cactus and I killed them. I'm a sad gardener. Enjoy your gardens.

Decided that my garden is going to need two more flats of impatiens to look the way I want it to. There are 5 sections to it, and I have hanging baskets in the corners. My color scheme this year is fuschia and white. I love sitting on my patio or deck and just enjoying everything, and they usually last until the beginning of Oct., so it's worth all the work. emoticon

Lois, it's good that you are a friend and will listen. Sometimes we all need that friend and we can work things out ourselves once we get them out in the open and say them.

Sandi, we have got a lot done! I have not started on the flower bed in front and that has to be done for the holiday so time is running short for me!


I have finally finished the garden. Everything is planted! The tomatoes that I planted first are looking really good and in a few weeks I hope to be able to start getting fresh veggies. I still wnat to expand it more and get a few other things planted but think I am be try to get to big. But would really love to have some cucumbers, onions and lettuce. The onions I could plant without digging up any more s I can use them for a border. So maybe I will do those. The yard needs cleaned up and the grass really needs mowed badly but with all this rain we have been having I doing know hen I will ba able to get out and do much.

I hope everyone is safe from all the storms the midwest is having so far we have been lucky and been on the edge of most of it only recieving lost of rain and some winds. Stay safe my firends!

Went to the farm and brought home 8 flats of impatiens - carried them all myself to the car and then to my deck. Planted 2+ flats in my flower boxes all along my deck rail. Fed all of them. Am now taking a short break before I go out to water down. Will continue tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

Way to go Sandi, Decorating and showing your spirit always makes a person feel good.
Lois some times the best thing a person can do for another is just listen and let them talk it out. You were a good friend.
Today is a gloomy day so I'm going to catch up on my paper work today. I have a ton of it so it'll probably take me a few days.
I managed to get in a good exercise yesterday so I slept well last night. I'm planning on repeating it again today.
I wish you all a good day today.

Good Wednesday Evening to everyone. Today I was really going to concentrate on doing some catch up on a few things around the house. It was a cloudy and gloomy day so I was trying really hard to get motivated. It didn't happen. A neighbor stopped in to chat. I really didn't chat much as much as just listen. Mega problems, which I cannot do anything to help other than listen. I am so truly blessed, because when I look around I see so many with so many problems that mine are almost nonexistent. I hope everyone had a great day. Will read the posts and be in touch tomorrow.

Afternoon Everyone - I know I am crazy - but I am a retied teacher - and if there's one thing we know how to do it's decorate! I just finished decking out the outside of the house for Memorial Day - complete with men from the armed forces carrying flags, Uncle Sam, and flags throughout the garden. Maybe it will help us to remember what this weekend is really about.

Good Morning Team! I am still recuperating from the wedding - the second night of 10 hours of sleep. Watching the new is so depressing - all those poor people having to deal with the destruction of those tornadoes. The frightening part is there are even more storms in the making. Sort of makes our own problems rather small in retrospect. Prayers for all in harms way.

Will be back later to check out the posts.

Good Morning everyone! Between dozing most of yesterday afternoon and sleeping almost ten hours last night, I think I have recovered from the wedding. Wouldn't have change a single minute of the weekend it was so great.

It is so sad to see all the devastation from the tornadoes yesterday. I was dozing yesterday afternoon and work up to hear the sirens. Was so confused as it was raining but didn't look bad at all. We have been having so much rain lately that what else was different. Then I turned on the TV and saw what was really going on .Miss my area but others were not so lucky.

Going to sign off for now as I am trying to catch up on posts and sparking that I missed over the weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Wil check up on the posts tomorrow. Home and totally exhausted. The wedding was fabulous. Lots of rains, but it clear up in time for the ceremony. The reception was just so much fun - those kids really know how to entertain. The hotel was great - didn't spent too much time in it as the party lasted until after 1:00 AM. Up this morning to have a brunch. When I finally got home this afternoon I just crashed. Hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did. emoticon emoticon

I hope it grows as good as it sounds!

This morning I am taking a few minutes to set and have my tea before starting breakfast. And then it out I go to get some more ground dug up. I hope the rain holds off long enough to let me make a big dent in what I have to get dug up!

I have to expand the garden! Went to the Farmer's Market this morning to get 1 chili pepper plant and ended up get 2 chili pepper, a "super hot" pepper plant ( could not resist that one!) and 4 more tomato plants. DH was teasing me and asked if I want the whole back yard dug up. Nope not this year but I do have to find more room to get these planted. As I have run out of rrom where I was planting. I have another spot in mind and got a little bit dug before the rain started. Oh well, I am going to have lots of fresh veggies this year!

It's starting out to be a beautiful day! The sun is out and the temps are warm. I can't wait to get outdoors! Finished digging up the rest of the garden last night and this morning I will get the rest of the vegetables planted. I will have to admit that I thought of more veggies that I want to plant. Now if I have the room I will go get plants and get them in the ground too. I can't wait to be able to walk out the door and get fresh veggies to eat!

Good Morning to all my sparking buddies. Haven't got time to respond to everyone so congratulation on all your successes and take care of yourselves.

Not sure how much sparking I will get done over the weekend as the celebrations start this evening with the rehearsal dinner. Tomorrow I have to be ready by 10:00 for pictures and so on and so on. My son insisted that I stay at the hotel tomorrow evening even though I could easily drive home and be back on Sunday for the brunch and gift opening. It is a lovely hotel so I guess I will just shut up and enjoy the luxury.

Not much else going on - have finished planting the patio and now keep the little creatures away.

Sending greetings to everyone and have a great weekend, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

The rain has stopped for couple of days here. Thanks goodness! I have yet to gt the garden finished and with the weekend coming up I hope to have the rest of it dug up and planted. I have yet to get the front flowere bed even started. That is usually a arguement waiting to happen. DH and I disagree on flowers for it. Even if I tell him to plant what ever he wants he gets mad. And if I plant what I like it is not what he wants and again we are fussing at each other. So who know what is going to be in that flower bed. The back yard flower beds are mine and he does not care what goes in them. With luck everything will get done this weekend.

Good Morning everyone. We have had several beautiful sunny day, but guess that we not last forever. Clouding over today and expecting rain. Have a granddaughter getting married on Saturday so hope whatever is coming comes and have a beautiful sunny day on Saturday. Have been planting flowers on my patio and have a little more to do today.

Sosmegod, the cayenne pepper is working so far. At book club yesterday one of the gals told me about a spray to use that you make yourself. It involves egg, garlic, cayenne pepper and water that you put into a blender. After strain out the garlic and put into a spray bottle. Claims it keeps everything away and does not harm the plants. She does a lot of gardening so I trust her advice. She said a little smelly, but that goes away.

Hope everyone is doing good and aches and pains are at a minimum. emoticon emoticon

Good morning everyone. I want to thank everyone for the words of encouragement. I just wanted to stop by and saying I am making a conscious effort with the eating and I am still doing my water aerobics. Today the weather here is cloudy off and on.

I am going to the cemetery with my best friend that lost her son last year. Tomorrow would be his birthday.

Everyone have a blessed and safe day. Enjoy your day.

Been another one of those crazy days. Ended up going to the garden nursery twice. Brought some flower and some potting soil - came home and forgot to pick up the potting soil I had already paid for. So, back to the nursery and was pushed for time as I had a doctors appointment. Made that in time and got a good report. After he reviewed the latest ultra sound there is no sign of any cancer cells. (I had thyroid cancer surgery back in 2008.) Only changed my medication and said he would see me in a year. After I got home planned on doing some sparking, but phone calls got in the way - then it was time to watch American Idol and now I am ready to read and go to bed.

Haven't posted for a couple, but hope everyone is healthy, having great days and evenings, and getting it done. emoticon emoticon

Today has done nothing but rain all day. I did get in my walk in on the treadmill. I increased my speed this week so hopefully next week I can start to include an incline.

If you find something that works let us know! I love my squirells but don't like them in the garden or planters. Red pepper does not even faze them. I have tried sprays and that does not work either.

On a good note, I have about 3/4 of the "new" garden dug up and planted. Have all the tomatoes ( both regular and cherry), all the herbs, and the hot peppers planted. Rain coming in tonight so I might not be able to finish it up until this weekend. I should have kept on going but DH talked me into to quitting for the day. Shame on him! I want it done!

Sandi I'm looking forward to seeing your baby set all finished. Be sure to take pictures especially when the baby uses it.
Lois sorry about your chipmunk problems. Hopefully the cayenne pepper works.
I had a wonderful day. The weather was nice, a little chilly but nice. I went out to dinner with my kids and we had a wonderful time chatting. I love when we can all get together for a meal. Especially when I don't have to make it.
Hope you all had a wonderful day too.

Good evening. What a day - I am really wiped out. Went this morning and got my potting soil plus plants for the patio. Every years I tell myself that I don't have to plant everything all in one day, but of course, I do it anyway. I no sooner got it done and went back inside for a bit and my little resident chipmunk thought I had furnished lunch.. Well, I didn't and I have covered the dirt with cayenne pepper. I stopped at the store and got several shakers of it as chippy and his squirrel friend will have to have lunch someplace else. Met with a landscape person today to see just what we can do without a lot of cost prior to a major landscaping project next spring. Legs and back are really tired so I think it is the heating pad and just chilling for the rest of the day. Have to check out who is eliminated from Dancing with the Stars night and some reading time. Will check the post tomorrow. Wishing everyone good evening. emoticon emoticon

Good evening everyone. We have a beautiful sunny Sunday here in Minnetonka, MN. I was beginning to think that the sun forget where Minnetonka was, but today make up for it. Even did some cleaning on the patio.

Sosmegod, what a lovely thing to do for your Father. Loss of a spouse is never easy. I lost my husband 40 years ago, have gone on with my life, memories are good, but there is loneiness at time. Hope you a wonderful visit.

Vicki and Sandi sorry about that old OA stepping in. With all the damp, windy and cold weather we have been having I am feeling a few aches and pains. Hopefully you will both be feeling better soon.

Sandi and Vicki sorry to hear about your OA kicking in. We have another beautiful day today but next week it's expected to rain and rain and rain some more. I hope my OA doesn't kick in.
Today is an extra quiet day so I'm just taking the day off and rest for next week. I'm hoping to get in my exercise all next week.
I'm making plans for Father's day early. My dad and sister are coming for a visit...they will be here for Father's day. I decided to get a special photo of my Mom and have an oil painting done of her. I'm hoping my dad loves it. Since Mom passed away he's very lonely without her. Luckily my sister still lives at home...so he's not all alone. I just pray the portrait turns out nice.
Enjoy your Sunday, talk to you tomorrow.

Another rainy day here. We just can't get away from the rain but on the good side the humidity is better so I can breath but the OA is kicking my behind.

I do beleive that Mother Nature is still playing with us. The crazy wainter we had then all this rain and when it did take a break we had nearly 90F temps with high humidy. I am still wondering what happened to Spring?? This next week will hopefully be better as the forecast is for temsp in the upper 60's. As long as the rain holds off I just might be able to get the rest of the garden dug up and planted! That is my goal for the week!

Sorry you guys have had such rotten weather. We had it last week. Today was a beautiful day though. The sun was shining and there was a nice breeze blowing so it wasn't too hot.
I spent the day shopping with my daughter and then got a walk in...came back paid bills, balanced the budget and now I'm finishing up on here so I can go watch a movie with my husband. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend...Enjoy!

afternoon everyone. Another cold and rainy day, I don't think the sun knows where Minnesota is located. Had coffee with the ladies as usual it is Saturday. We didn't solve any problems other than decide who should win Dancing with the Stars and American Idol.

After doing some sparking, I am going to settle down with a good book. Bye for now, smile and tell someone you love them
