I didn't know zucchini came in yellow. I will have to google it. You got a lot from your garden. I also didn't know you could freeze cucumbers.

I am sooooo ready for this hot weather to leave. I would like to go somewhere for a couple of days. Have to wait until it is cooler. It wouldn't do any good if I had to stay indoors in ac.

I feel for Sally. It is hard to see a loved one suffer and deteriorate.

Poor Sally that is such sad news. I took Gladys out for lunch today. Then we attacked the garden.I got 5 pounds of yellow zucchini and 3 pounds of green zucchini 5 pounds of carrots and 10 pounds of cucumbers ,some broad beans too. I am still working on apples too.I took Gladys some apple crisp and some frozen cucumbers.
I am so sorry you have been sad.I think the first year is very hard.It is the firsts , first birthday without him ,first holiday season and you really had no warning like with Wes even though he had MS we thought he was going to a nursing home , he was telling jokes and laughing the night before .I know you never really get used to the idea but when you have some warning it is easier to get your head around it. One minute Alan was saying he was fine the next he was gone that is hard.I don't think his Mother being beastly helps any either. It is her loss though.I will give you a call next week and we will have a visit.This weekend is a bit hectic so I will wait till I hear what is a good day for you!

Thought I would go ahead and post this before I forget. Sally posted on facebook that her mother fell and was taken to the hospital. They did test and found cancer tumors all over her body. Don't know if there is going to be any treatment yet.

I have been sad today. Guess it was my birthday without Alan. August has not been a good month. I guess it is one of those med life crisis. Wondering what my life will be, feeling lost. Give Lacey a hug, Gladys also. I know she is in much pain. At this stage, she is in shock. You are such a caring friend and I know she appreciates it.

Had a good visit with brother and SIL. TV cable has been off for about 3 hours now. They say they are working on it.

I think I will try to move one of my nightstands and start stenciling it. That small plant stand took me a week, so I am sure this will take longer.

My brother put on new windshield wipers. I have needed them for at least a year. Alan never got around to it. I had bought them and was going to take them to Lufkin and get him to do it. I didn't go because they called and said they were coming here. Glad they fit. Now I will be able to see when it rains.

Took a large box to Goodwill on the way to the lawyers. The lawyer and his wife(secretary) are both very nice. The will, Power of Att, Healthcare Power of Att, and the living will are all notarized and witnessed.

Hope I sleep well tonight. My yard guy will be here between 715 and 730am. It is 1208am now and I am not sleepy at all.

Did a little house cleaning today. I should go to Goodwill and Womens Shelter Thrift shop and see if they have any small pieces of furniture that I might want to paint. I have a couple of projects in the utility room, then painting the dresser, and stenciling my nightstands. In the utility room I am going to put a shelf behind the washer and the cabinet next to it and I bought a shower curtain with a scene from a Paris street. Have you seen the large wall art they have on pinterest using shower curtains? That is what I want to make. I think I will put the shelf up and then start on one of the nightstands. I haven't shown you the stenciling I did on the plant stand. I will have to take a picture.
I am rambling. Goodnight.

Tomorrow I go and sign a new will, power of att, healthcare power of att, and a living will. I needed a new will because Alan was the executor of my old will.

I went through 2 cabinets in the den today. I have a big box for goodwill and had a bit of trash. I think I have gone through everything in the house except a closet in the utility room. A lot of paint and painting supplies are in it. As soon as it cools off some, I will work on the workshop. Until then I think I will take one shelf at a time in that closet.

That is so kind. I am sure she appreciates you taking care of them right now.

I had one of those nights last night. I fell asleep sometime after 3am. That always makes me feel terrible the next day. I finally started cleaning the house a little this afternoon.

My oldest brother, Dennis and his wife are coming Wednesday to take me out to eat. It is my birthday.

A great condo came on the market. I would love to have it, but am so afraid that this house will not sell. It is very hard to sell a house in this town. I started having panic attacks thinking about it. I don't think I am ready to pack up and leave here right now. I may regret it, but I am staying here for now. I am getting a panic attack thinking about it. I am so conflicted. I want the condo and I don't want to leave here.

I think I put a before picture of the plant stand I bought. I stained the top and little shelf. I painted the legs and have been stenciling on the stained part. Later today I will sand it so that the stencils will look old and worn and then tomorrow I will put poly on it.

I went out this morning and used the battery sprayer I bought. Alan always kept the vines at bay, but I am not doing such a good job.

He is the young man who gave me my wheelchair.He had MS but we thought he was going to be transferred from the hospital into a nursing home.Sadly he took a turn for the worse they phoned Gladys and she and her husband Sieg and daughter Tammy rushed to the hospital and they could not keep him breathing. I have know him since 1997 it feels like I have lost a son.Tammy phoned me when she knew what was happening but it was too late.

Ok, I'm am tired of this. I didn't eat until 1pm and then got sick. Had chills and had to take Imodium again. This is the 3rd day. Hoping it is a stomach virus and will be gone soon.

Its not the flu. My stomach. I got sick today. I ate some chicken wings that everyone said was good. I tried to take as much of the skin off as I could. I think they were too greasy. I wasn't as sick as the other day. Just nauseated. I fine now. I do not like chicken skin.

I would have sworn that I posted every day. That is weird. Maybe not. I got sick yesterday. I got up early and went to the bank and Goodwill. The salon that I have used for about 25 years closed. I found one that was not in a fancy shop, but you do have to make an appointment. She said that it is really busy right now with everyone getting ready for the beginning of school. So I went and got a haircut at 11:30. I got it really short. On my way home I stopped at Jack in the Box and got a cheeseburger and tea. The tea was a little sour, which is not that usual in the summer. About 30 minutes later I started having chills and my stomach was killing me. I had to take an Imodium and lay under a blanket. I finally fell asleep and woke up 4 hours later. My gut still hurt but everything else was alright.

I told myself that I was going to take down my dresser mirror today if I didn't do anything else. Well I figured out how to get it down without killing myself and it is loaded in the back of the truck. I cleaned behind the dresser and found a place for the stuff I had on top of the dresser. I hung the new mirror. I took pictures and I will post them here on sparkpeople. I have before pictures but I took them the day that I made the pictures too large to upload on this site.

I'm back. It let me load the big before picture of the dresser. That is strange.

I took more picture and I remembered to set the camera to email size, so I will try and upload them here on sparkpeople.

I'm back. Got the photos uploaded without any problems. The photos of the sunflower prints-The frame is so large that it goes behind the bed. I used a hole that was already on the wall because I don't want to make any new ones. So, this is how it will be. The pediments have large clear jewels in the flowers. They glow in the picture. I didn't see them on their website. It looked like just the dark flower. I like them. They hang by a sawtooth hanger. The office is hard to take a picture in because there is so much light that comes through the windows. On the windows are static cling so no one can see in, but light comes in. I thought the end table was unusual and I think the plant stand has a nice shape.

I use to go to Michaels, but like Hobby Lobby better. The Hobby Lobby stores are twice the size.

I put my prints in the frame and the paper wrinkles. I am going to have to go and either get glass or might try foam core to back it.

The class was nice. We did several finishes, typical, 2 color distress, dry brush, and modern. On each, one side we put clear wax and the other side we put dark wax. On some we sanded distress them also. I took a small "pillow" made with red background and Christmas trees on it. She painted it Old White, sanded it, and waxed it and it feels like leather. She needed to put one more coat to completely cover the bright fabric, but we didn't have time to let it dry. I had seen this finish on a website and her daughter did it on a wing back chair. She said that she will have a class on gilding and other different finishes. I may go to that one also.

My pediment came in, but I haven't even opened the package. Tomorrow.

This site says you posted at 4am. You are as bad as me. I finally went to bed at 3am. I got up at 1020. My email said that the pediments were at the UPS office, so I went to get them, but they could not find them. I had to come home to get the tracking number and call them. The shipper had instructed them to take them to the post office, so they should be delivered tomorrow.
I did clean the frame some more and I taped it and painted it. Also distressed the frame. Hopefully I will get the prints in it today. If the pediments come in I will only have to get on the bed once to hang them above the window and hang the prints over the bed.
My furniture painting class is in the morning. I am looking forward to going.

Maybe it was best to be left out of their little circle,being her favourite did not do them any good. Wow you are doing a fantastic job with the decorating.I got the curtains back up in my seahorse loo today my friend Johanne came and helped me.I hug the seahorses on the wall all by myself though.This weekend I am working on my craft room.

I cleaned out the hallway closet. I took almost a half of a truck bed full of stuff from that closet to Goodwill today. I finished the café curtains in the utility room out of the remnants of the drop cloth curtains I made for my bedroom. I thought the bedroom curtains needed something at the top, so I found a pediment on sale at Hobby Lobby for $17. I took down the large picture in the hallway. That is the frame I want to paint and put my sunflower prints in and hang it in my bedroom. I cleaned it and took the picture out of it. There was a bunch of tape on the glass and even with goo gone, it took a long time to get it all off. I still need to clean the glass more. I dug through my fabric drawer and found some fabric I can use for a background for the prints.

No, she wasn't nasty. She was mostly quiet. I was never her favorite. Pat was the favorite with Rhonda a close second. Pat and her son Mark divorced first and then she thought Pat was the devil. Rhonda and her son Glen divorced second and she talks terribly of her. In her mind her sons do no wrong, not even little things. Everything is the other persons fault. Julie and I were kind of left out of their little circle.

I am feeling better today. Of course I ate yesterday, Mexican food and later ice cream. Comfort food just makes you feel better even if it is not good for you. Other widows tell me that this happens ever so often. Just hate that feeling.

I called Betty the other day. It had been 14 days since I had talked to her. She never called. I will continue to distance myself from her.

Oh Mary I am so sorry .Alan would want you still to be happy on your anniversary. He was a lovely man. I can understand you feeling sad it really has not been that long and I am not very impressed with his Mom she should have sent you good wishes today. You and Alan were happy together and she should be grateful for that.

You sound like me, staying awake all night and then sleeping most of the day away. I didn't sleep much last night and had to get up at 630 to feed Whisp and let her roam outside before the yard guy came. I lock her inside the house while he is here because I am afraid she will get out the gate while he is mowing.

I need to go get dog food and I haven't even gotten dressed.

I had a bad night and don't want to do anything today. Today is Alan and my 37th wedding anniversary. Now I am crying again. I hate when I replay the day of his death in my head over and over. I am having an anxiety attack. I want it to go away!!!

I put up the wallies in the office today. I think I figured out why I could not post my pictures. I have my camera on 12MP. I use to keep it on email pictures because of the pictures I use to have to send Bealls when I finished merchandising the jewelry. I take some pictures later.

Glad you enjoyed the class.

She is fine. She just needed to stop licking that nail.

I've got my curtains up and I took a before and after picture and some pictures of other stuff too. You can't see the stripes very well since they are yellow, white, and brown. I will post the pictures here because people on facebook will not know why I am posting them.

Did you go to the meat grinding class? My brother does all that with the deer he kills.

Well, I am back. This site will not let me download my pictures, so I will put them on face book.

Ended up "sleeping" in the den to watch whisp. We made it through the night without any blood. I fell asleep around 5am and didn't get up until noon. I am done with the decorative stitches. Whew. My sewing machine started acting up. I hope to hang them tomorrow and steam them in place. I am ready to finish with this project. The next one is to put up some wallies in the office and maybe in the bedroom. Hopefully much easier.

Took Whisp to the vets to get her nails cut at 815 am. They knicked one, no problem, it happens. At 330pm I saw blood everywhere. I looked at her and said, You have been licking it, haven't you? Took a while but finally got it stopped. Had to clean up all the blood, den, dining room, kitchen, and hallway. The carpet in the bedroom is light tan. Thank goodness only 2 drops. I went to start sewing the decorative stiches and I heard her licking. She was laying next to me. Yes, she had made it bleed again. Easier to stop this time and had to clean up the blood. Started to sew again and she began to lick. No more sewing. We are in the den watching tv and I have had to tell her to stop licking two times. She finally fell asleep. Maybe tomorrow I will be able to sew. Mommy had to take care of her little girl.

Got the curtains painted. The tape would not stick, so I used a sponge to paint the fabric so the paint would not bleed under the tape. It is rustic, but that is what I wanted. Painted three stripes toward the bottom, yellow, white, and brown. I was sitting here thinking that each stripe needed a border or something. I am so dingy. I have a sewing machine that makes about 100 different stitches. Now I need to select one or more than one stitch and sew borders to each stripe. Have got to select color of thread.

I do not think you should give Betty's grandson money.He is young he should get a job.If Betty can not be bothered to contact you then too bad for her.You were kind to her, she was mean to you.You do not deserve that. You are welcome to be a part of my family .It may not be a conventional family but you are always welcome here. No one would be mean to you either ! Betty does not know how lucky she is .I wish we were as close in distance .I sure would not leave it 12 days .
I hope Sally is okay it is a lot for her looking after her parents with Bruce away.I don't think it is too bad looking after her Mom but looking after her Dad can be challenging.

After watching the news I thought, there isn't anything on tv, so I finished the second set of curtains. Now I can paint all of them tomorrow.

I went and saw Betty on July 18th. After that visit, I thought, maybe she wants me to disappear since I am not family. She seems mad that I will not give her grandson money. He will not get a job. I have talked and seen her less since she is mean to me. I decided to not call her or go over and wait and see if she makes any effort to contact me. Well it has been 12 days and I have not heard a word from her.

Most of the time I wait and buy things when they are at least on sale, but like clearance better.

I finished 2 panels, so one windows curtains are done, except for the painting. Hope to do the other one tomorrow. Whisp kept coming in the room and telling me that it was her feeding time. How do they know what time it is?

It is a good thing that we don't live close. I would be over all the time eating. Something I do not need to do.

I felt unmotivated today. I did wash and dry the drop cloths. Maybe tomorrow I will feel like sewing them.

I wanted to sleep late, but the yard guy usually comes around 710am. I got up and moved the cars and feed Whisp so I could lock her inside. I feel tired and have not done anything.

Guess it is just you and I here. Sally comments on my posts on face book. I am sure she is so busy with her parents. She said something about her sister going to Disney World, so she may be there by herself. She posted something about having to take her father to the emergency room, but didn't say why.

Here is a link to the mirror I ordered.

Went to the doctor. Reacted mildly to grass, nothing else. After they did the grass section I began to get stings all over my body. Dr said that I do not react to any particular grass enough to get allergy shots. Wants me to come in the first of March and she will put me on prescription meds for the spring so maybe I will not have to go to the emergency room next year.

I found on pinterest drop cloth curtains. I have been looking for new curtains for my bedroom and they are so expensive. I bought the drop cloths today and paint to put yellow and white stripes on them. Total 22 dollars for what will be 4 panels. I will have some cloth left over and will make café curtains for the laundry room. Free.

I plan to paint the drawer fronts on my dresser because it is so outdated. Bought it around 1979. I think another thing that makes it so outdated is the mirror. I want to take it off. I have been looking for a wall mirror to replace it. They are expensive also. I finally found one tonight for 72 dollars with free shipping, so I ordered. It is 36 inches in diameter. It is round with black and brown metal frame. I am going to put some of the antique white on the black part. That is what I am going to paint the drawer fronts.

Picked more tomatoes this morning. I will be finished this evening with the kennel. I have a doctors apt at 8am for more allergy testing. I am home, washing clothes and running the dishwasher. I do all of that on the weekend because my electric plan, I have weekend electricity free. I will leave in about an hour to go back to the kennel.

Have you been working in the garden?

I went out in the garden at the kennel and picked tomatoes. They have 2 varities. One is the shape of an eggplant. I don't like them, they have no juice. I ate all the regular ones.

I was getting dressed today and saw that one of the flowers on the freezer doesn't have a stem. I have several stems left over, so I will put one on.

It is so hot that I am wet when I get finished feeding the dogs. Tired. They will be home Sunday night.
