Hi there everyone, so happy to see you all and wishing you a great weekend.

I have been AWOL for the last few days. First off the server was down and I had to get that fixed and the last couple I have been out and about having so much fun, and returning home pooped and just falling into bed.
SPRING is here. The plums trees in my garden are spectacular covered in such perfect doublt white blossoms promising a great crop this year is the wind and rains dont come too soon. Everywhere is just so lovely. Chinese cherries, magnolias and even new green leaves appearing on the willows and my Goditzia. Wisteria buds are forming and they will be gracing everything soon. The weather is so warm and sunny I am just revelling in it.

Lunched out with DS one day, we had Japanese this time and then strolled along the waterfront and the harbour and called in at a little place on the end where he had a beer and I had iced water - way too hot even for coffee. So pleasant.

Yestereday I went out on boats trips, hopping around the stop offs in the local area.
The sea was perfect and blue and just enough clouds in the sky to make it interesting. It is lovely round here in the harbour area and out across to the other side of the bay. We have lots of islands to visit. It really is quite an idylic place to live and am feeling really blessed with
the health to enjoy it currently.

Love to you all Wispy.

Far too many posts to catch up on, but it is so good to see you all ... as it were.

Hi Team,
It was cool and foggy this morning but now is warming up since it is about 2 pm. I checked my veggie garden yesterday as I had planned and found that Kelby had left the gate up top open, and the darned deer had snuck in and eaten my green bean plants down to stems. . plus picked and crushed some of the tomatoes. Drat. . although the beans hadn't been doing that well this year anyway. Luckily the peppers, which deer really love, are down near the kitchen door and they didn't make it that far.

Today I spent much of the day on the internet researching medieval recipes and witchcraft since I'm making some halloween prop witch books for sale on Ebay this halloween. I was looking for spells and potions but didn't find too many, and hey, I didn't want authentic anyway, just wanted to get the language and flavor of the times right. . .found the medieval cookbooks full of great terms, stepe a whyle for steep a while, styre it tyll it boyles etc which will make witchy sounding potion instructions. Yesterday I make two small booklets of an old suede jacket and sewed them together, each has about 20 pages of soft suede, and I'll write the recipes there and do some aging, etc. I already discoverd that mod podge stiffens and darkens the suede covers! So I'm having creative fun.

Oma. . .glad you are moving a bet better now that the predisone dose is back up. I've been working on seriously losing for about 7 weeks and it will be great to have you concentrating on it too, we can support each other!

Josh. . .thanks for the compliment on my garden pic. . .it always looks great in the spring. Sorry this has been a stressful week. . hope next week is better for you.

Mac. . .all your baked goods sound so yummy, hope the sale is successful, even if you don't have anything left for Sunday the congregation will probably forvgive you!! Clever idea to put the varnish on the keys, I hope it works out. Too bad about the waste collection. . .but nice that they offer the door service for you, even if they aren't too good about doing it. My bins have to travel about 300 feet up a sloped gravel driveway, so if I'm ever on my own I'm not sure what I'd do. One of the neighbors has a small trailer he hooks to the back of his car with just the room for the 3 bins, and leaves the trailer at the road, so maybe i'd do something like that.

Sherry. . .it sure sounds like your beans did well this year. . .mine didn't and then the deer just wiped them out, darn it.

Cerebellum. . .you sure weren't buying any high performance auto parts. . .sounds like a young guy got a hold of your account number! Too bad your tomato plant didn't do too well. . .I've got tons of ripe ones and this weekend we are going to a barbecue at my sister in laws and I'll make a tomato salad. With the seasons around here I'll be picking tomatoes till November. . I do enjoy having the long growing season and am sorry you don't have one there.

Corgismom. . .Science based writing for kids sounds like a good use of your knowledge base. . seems like there is too much fantasy nowdays with everyone trying to ride on the popularity of the Harry Potter books. Are you familiar with the genre called Steampunk that is getting more popular. . .a science background would be helpful with writing that!

Dusty. . .I hate those nights when your brain won't let you sleep. . sorry you had one last night. . you sure must be tired today, but relieved that the test is done. When do you get the results?

Linda. . it sounds like you are having a good time with all the family and catching up with a cousin. When do the Republicans leave Tampa and the town can get back to normal? Soon I'd guess since Romney did his acceptance speech last night.

Off to see if I and make my handwriting look like medieval pen and quill. . .Lynn

It is like getting grades by 1-3 the 3 are needs improvement, 2 average, and 1 above average. The grades have to do with attitude, attandance, and performance for each class. All of them asks questions that they want you to answer and if you have too many 3s then you will be kicked out of the program. Besides the instructors you also have a couple other staff members and the DORS counslor and/or the supervisor of the DORS counslor.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

LATISH AGAIN BUT I HAVE ONLY JUST FINISHED IN THE KITCHEN AND HAD MY SUPPER. MARY STILL HAS TO HAVE HERS BUUT IT IS AN EASY ONETHISEVENING AND THE OVEN IS ALREADY ON WARMING UP.

I STARTEED AROUND 10.15 THIS MORNING AND, APART FORM A SIT DOWN AT LUNCHTIME, I HAVE NOT STOPPED. STILL, ALL THE BAKING IS DONE, WRAPPED UP AND READY TO GO FOR TOMORROW'S FUNDRAISER. WHAT I AM GOING TO DO IS TO SEE WHAT IS LEFTOVER AND USE IT FOR SUNDAY. AS I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TIME I WILL FINISH TOMORROW, AND WORKING ON THE TALE, I WILL NOT REALLY FEEL LIJE DOING ANY MORE BAKING WHEN I GET HOME. JUST HOPE THERE IS SOME LEFT, ALTHOUGH I WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, OF COURSE, IF IT ALL GOES. I SUSPEC, THOUGH, THAT WE WILL HAVE ENOUGH TO DO SUNDAY AS WELL AS A FEW OF US ARE CONTIBUTING. I HAVE DONE A SULTANA CAAKE, AN ICED LEMON SPONGE WITH LEMON CREAMINTHE CENTRE AND A CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE CREAM AND CHOCOLATE SHAVINGS, AND I MENTIONEDTHAT MARY AHS MADE TABLET, SO THAT WILL START IS OFF IF NOTHING ELSE.

HAD TO COMPAIN TO OUR RUBBISH COLLECTION AGENCY TODAY. WE ARE ON WHAT THEY CALL A REAR DOOR PICK UP, WHICH BASICALLY MEANS THAT THE BIN MEN COLLECT FORMTHE DOOR RATHERTHAN YOU AHVING TO PUT THE BIN INTHE STREET. NOW WE HACE THREE BINS, A GREEN ONEFOR LANDFILL WASTE, A BLUE ONE FOR RECYCLABLE WASTE AND A BROWNONE FOR GARDEN WASTE. THE BROWN ONE HAS ONLY BEEN EMPTIED ONCE THIS SUMMER AND THERE IS STUFF IN IT THAT HAS STARTED TO ROT DOWN INTO COMPOST. ALSO TODAY, WHILST THE BLUE BIN WAS EMPTIED THE BIN MEN SIMPLY LEFT IT IN THE STREET INSTEAD OF WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO AND BRING IT BACK TO THE HOUSE. I AM NOT ONE FOR COMPAINNG ABOUT SERVICES NORMALLY, BUT THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE HAD TO REMIOND THEM ABOUT OUR BROWN BIN AND SO I WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THE BLUE ONE EITHER. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXTWEEK WHEN THE GREEN BIN IS COLLECTED. MARY HAS JUST ARRIVED HOME AND SHE AHS BROUGHT THE BIN UP TO THE HOUSE, BUT IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT AND ESPECIALLY THE FACT THAT OUR BROWN BIN WASN'T PICKED UP.

WHAT ELSE CAN I TELL YOU. MUM CONTINUES TO BEHAVE WHICH IS PLEASING. TRISH IS DOING WELL WITH EHR POOL EXERCISE CLASS AND EVEN IF MY HEALTH PASS IS NOT EHRE BY TOMORROW I THINK I MIGHT JUST GO SWIMMING ON MONDAY. ITMAY BE EXERCISE BUT IT WILL ALSO BE RELAXING FOR ME.

OH, AND MARY BOUGHT ME A NEW KEYBOARD. TO RTY AND STOP THE ACID FROM MYFINGERS RUBBING THE LETTERS AWAY TRISH HAS PUT SOME NAIL VARNISH ON THE KEYS. SHE WILL DO THIS AGAIN FORMEAFTER A COUPLE OFWEEKS AND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL PROVIDE A BARRIER.

CANNOT DO ANYTHING INTHE GARDEN AND I STILL HAVE NOTPLANTERD THSOE STRAWBERRIES. IT HAS BEEN ANOTHER DAY OF ON/OFF RAIN, ANDIMEAN RAIN AND NOT JUST SHOWERS. I AM KEEPING EVERYTHING CROSSED THAT I CAN GET A COUPLE OF DRY DAYS NEXT WEEK TO START AND DO THE TIDYING UP AND THE PRUNING ETC. MUM DID BUY MNE A NEW PAIR ODF SHEARS WHCIH WILLCOME IN USEFUL BUT I STILL NEED TO GET A NEW TROWEL. MARY FORGOT WHEN SHE WENT SHOPPING LAST WEEK AND I NEVER WENT NEAR A SHOP WHICH SOLD THEM.

SO, A BUSY DAY AND HAVING STOOD FOR TOO LONG, MY BACK IS NOW COMPLAINING SO NOTHING ELSE THIS EVENING BUT REST.

SHERRY, THAT SUPPER SURE SOUNDS YUMMY AND A SIGN THAT YOU ARE BEGINNING TO EAT PROPERLY AGAIN, WHICH MUST BE SO MUCH OF A RELIEF FOR YOU. I DID GET A BETTER SLEEP LAST NIGHT AND IF THE WAY I FEEL RIGHT NOW IS ANYTHING TO GO BY THEN I AM HOPING FOR ANOTHER GOOD ONE TONIGHT. STRANGE HOW YOU DO STUFF WITHOUT REALISING IT. ME WITH THE PUSHING AND YOU WITH THE WALKING. AT THE TIME YOU THINK NOTHING OF IT UNTIL YOUR BODY SUDDENLY REMINDS YOU THAT YOU ARE DOING TOO MUCH AND YOU JUST CANNOT SEE THAT COMING.

DUSTY, HOPE EVERYTHING GOES OKAY FOR YOU TODAY. I GUESS WE ARE LUCKY IN THAT OUR GP IS ONLY 15 MINBUTES AWAY BY CAR AND EVEN THE HOSPITALS ARE ONLY A HALF HOUR DRIVE. HOPE YOU FEEL OKAY THIS EVENIGN AND NOT TOO TIRED. PICKING APPLES WHEN YOU COME BACK WILL BE NO FUN AND ESPECIALLY IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY SO I DO HOPE THE TEMPS HAVE COOLED A BIT FOR YOU AS WELL.

JUST READ YOUR LAST POSTAS I AM CATCHING UP. YOU DID ANAGE TO GET EVEERYTHING DONE WHCIH IS GOOD, BUT NOW IT IS TIME TO REST. YOU OBVIOUSLY WERE STRESSED LAST NIGHT AND DID NOT WANT TO BE LATE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENTS SO YOU MIGHT JUST NEED TO SQUEEZE IN A NAP THIS AFTERNOON. IT IS GOOD THAT YOU ARE STILL WITH A DOCTOR. WITH ANY SPECIALISED ISSUES A NURSE PRACTITIONER, WHIOLST GOOD, IS NOT THE BEST FOR YOU AS THEY ARE NOT TRAINED TO THE SAME DEGREE AS A DOCTOR SO WOULD LIKELY MISS A TRICK OR EVEN NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE SOMETHING THAT YOUR NEED SORTING OUT. SO I AM PLEASED FOR YOU IN THAT RESPECT.

JOSH, HAVE BEEN THERE RE THE DEBT LOAD SO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM. YES, IT HAS BEEN A BUSY WEEK AND NO TRAVELS ON THE HORIZON AT THE MOMENT, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW. STRESS IS AN AWFUL THING TO MANAGE PROPERLY AND OFTEN IT IS A COMBINATION OF THINGS. YOU HAVE MONEY PROBLEMS AND THEN THERE IS YOUR JOB AND IT ALL PILES UP. PLEASE DO BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO LET IT OVERLOAD YOU. STRESS WAS THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF WHY I BECAME DISABLED AND NOW THERE IS NO GOING BACK. I, TOO, HAD MONEY WORRIES AT THE TIME AND WAS WORKIMNG ANYTHING UP TO 100 HOURS A WEEK BUT DID NOT RECOGNISE THAT MY STRESS LEVELS WERE OUT OF CONTROL. IF I HAD RECOGNISED THE FACT THAT I WAS UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS AT THE TIME I COULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND SPOKEN TO SOMEONE ABOUT IT. NOW IT IS TOO LATE FOR ME AND I WOULD HATE TO SEE ANYONE IN THE SAME POSITION. IT HAS TAKEN ME SEVERAL YEARS TO ACTUALLY FIND A MANAGEMENT PLAN WHEREBY I CAN LIVE A RELATIVELY NORMAL LIFE SO PLEASE DO NOT DELAY. OBVIOUSLY I AM NOT TRYING TO INTERFERE IN YOUR LIFE, BUT IF YOU CAN SEE A STRESS COUNCELLOR IT WILL BE THE BEST MOVE YOU EVER MADE... TRUST ME.

MONICA, WHAT IS A STAFFING? MORE COMPUTER ISSUES HEH? I CANNOT BELIEVE IT. YOU MUST BE THE UNLUCKIEST EPRSON WHEN IT COMES TO COMPUTERS. HOPE THEY GET RESOLVED QUICKLY FOR YOU UNLIKETHE LAST TIME.

CORGIMARY, WHAT A GREAT IDEA AND IT WILL GENERATE A BIT EXTRAINCOME FOR YOU AS WELL. I AGREE THAT TOO OFTEN WRITERS SIMPLY WRITE FICTION FOR KIDS MAGAZINES SO IT WOULD BE REFRESHING TO HAVE A SCIENCE COLUMN FOR THEM TO READ. I OFTEN REMEMBER THAT WHEN I WAS A KID THERE WAS A MAGAZINE CALLED LOOK AND LEARN. SADLY IT IS NO LONGER BUT AT THE TIME IT WAS A MAGAZINE THAT TOLD YOU ABOUT SCIENCVE AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES ETC. AND HISTORY AND PITCHED IT AT YOUR LEVEL. I SUBSCRIBED TO THIS ALL THE TIME AND I WISHI STILLHAD THE MAGAZINES TO PASS ON TO MY GRANDKIDS NOW AS THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT ON THE SHELVES TODAY.

CEREBELLUM, THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT. AT LEAST THE BANK HAVE BEEN PROACTIVE ON YOUR BEHALF AND THAT AHS TO BE A GOOD SIGN. HOEFULLY SUCH A THING WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. AND YES, WHAT A DIFFERENCE TO THE CHURCH AS WE KBNOW IT TODAY. UNFORTUNATELY, ALL CHURCHES DO TEND TO HAVE RATHER A MURKY PAST AND THE CHURCH OF ROME IS NOT ALONE. JUST THINK OF ALL THE WARS THAT AHVE BEEN FOUGHT AND INVASIONS THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE ALL IN THENAMEOF RELIGION. UNFORTUNTAELY, THERE ARE STILL PARTS OF THE WORLD TODAY WHERE RELIGION IS THE CATALYST FOR SO MANY TROUBLES. JUST WISH THAT WE COULD ALL COME TOGETHER NOW, FORGET THE TURBULENCE OF THE PAST AND LIVE IN PEACE AND HARMONY.

OMA, THOROUGHLY ENJOYED YOUR BLOG AS ALWAYS AND YOU ARE SUCH A NATURAL WITHT THE CAMERA. I AM PLEASED THAT OYU ARE GING TO TAKE IT SLOW TODAY. ABOUT TIME AS YOU HAVE BEEN RUSHING OUT AND DOING REALLY TOO MUCH. HOPEFULLYONCETHE BABYSITTING DUTIES ARE AT AN END YOU WILLBE ABLE TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND FIND SOME ME TIME. YOU DESERVE IT ANDYOUR GRANDKIDS MUST REALISE THAT THEY ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE YOU AS THEIR GRANDMA. HOPE LEN GETS BETTER SOON. NOTHING WORSE THAN A COLD AND AT THIS TIME OF YEAR WITHT EH WEATHER STARTING TO CHANGE IT CAN BE A DEVIL TO GET RID OF.

OK FOLKS, JUST HAVE MARY'S LUNCHBOX TO DO SO WILL AWAY AND GET THAT DONE ANDTHEN I CAN RELAX FRO THE EVENING.

TAKE CARE; HAVE A GREAT DAY ANDI WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU AGAIN LATER ON.

Home from my appointment...I was so stressed I woke up at 1 AM and kept running issues through my head and never got back to sleep. Talked to patient rep & my cpap specialist so I will remain with a doctor and not a nurse practitioner as I have so many specialized health issues to address!
Have picked the apples and now after lunch plan on a nap as we have a lot planned this weekend!
Did pretty good on getting my list of things done this week!

MORNING EVERYONE. BOY AM SO FRUSTRATED AS COULD HAVE SLEPT TIL NOON TODAY BUTAM AFRAID I WAS AWAKE FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS DURING THE NIGHT AND THEN AWAKE AT 6 AM AGAIN. YUK. MY LOWER BACK IS VERY SORE AS ARE MY LEGS BUT I WILL SURVIVE. GOING TO GO SLOW TODAY BUT WANT TO GET THE LAUNDRY DONE. LEN IS DOWN WITH A COLD SO NOT SURE WHAT IF ANYTHING HE WILL DO. WE DO HAVE SOME EPISODES OF FROST AND MORSE TO WATCH SO THAT COULD BE THE PLAN FOR TODAY.

IT IS CHILLY THIS MORNING AND WE MAY GET SOME SHOWERS BUT WON'T HOLD MY BREATH. THINK I WILLSTILL HAVE TO GO OUT AND WATER THE GARDEN. THINK I MIGHT DO SOMETHING IN THE OVEN FOR SUPPER AS THE TEMPS AREN'T SUPPOSED TO OVER 20. WILL HAVE TO GO SEE WHAT I HAVE. MAYBE RIBS OR A ROAST, NEW POTATOES AND CORN ON THE COB. YUMMY NOW I AM GETTING HUNGRY. ALSO AS THIS IS THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH AND MY BABYSITTING DUTIES ARE COMING TO AN END EXCEPT FOR THE ODD DAY I WANT TO REALLY CONCENTRATE ON SPARKS AND TRYING TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT AGAIN AS WAS DOING WELL BEFORE THE PREDNISONE. IT IS NICE TO BE ABLE TOMOVE ON THE INCREASED DOSE THOUGH I MUST ADMIT. I WAS IN PRETTY BAD SHAPE THERE FOR ABOUT A MONTH. STILL NOT GREAT BUT BETTER.

CEREBELLUM GOOD LUCK WITH ALLYOUR PHONE CALLS.

MAC GLAD YOU ARE ENJOYING THE SHOW. WILLHAVE TO CHECK IT OUT AND SEE IF WE GET IT OVER HERE.

HAS ANYONE BEEN WATCHING "MAJOR CRIMES" THAT TOOK OVER FROM THE CLOSER? I AM NOT SURE I AM GOING TO STILL WATCH IT AS I DON'T LIKE THE GAL PLAYING THE NEW CHIEF NOR DO I LIKE THE WAY THE STORY LINE IS GOING. GOOD THING THE OLD GUYS ARE STILLTHERE OR I WOULDNT EVEN BE GIVING IT A CHANCE AS I REALLY LIKE THEM.

JOSHWATS I AM SORRY I AM SO SLOW IN WELCOMING YOU TO THE TEAM BUT WELCOME. I SEE YOU ALSO BELONG TO A CANADIAN TEAM WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I LIVE IN CALGARY AND SHERRY IS IN VEGREVILLE IN ALBERTA.

WELL BETTER GO LOOKING FOR SUPPER AND ALSO GET BREAKFAST MADE. I THINK SOMETIMES THE REASON I CAN'T SLEEP IS BECAUSE I AM HUNGRY. I ALSO WANT TO ORDER PRINTS OF OUR TRIP TO SEE THE BIRDS OF PREY FOR OUR AUNT. TAKE CARE AND THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO CAME TO CHECK OUT THE BLOG.

IT IS HARD TO THINK THAT SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER! IT SEEMS LIKE IT JUST STARTED. I HATE WINTER AND ENVY THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE JUST NOW GOING INTO SPRING OR SUMMER. MY FRIEND PLANTED ONE TOMATOE PLANT FOR ME, AND I HAVE YET TO GET ANY TOMATOES FROM IT. THERE ARE TWO ON THERE, BUT THEY ARE STILL GREEN.

FRUSTRATEDOMA- I PLAN ON CALLING THE SUPERVISOR TODAY AND SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING I CAN DO TO SPEED THINGS UP.

LINDA-I NEVER USE MY DEBIT/CREDIT CARD ONLINE BECAUSE OF THIS. I USE OTHER CREDIT CARDS, BUT NONE THAT I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR UNAUTHORIZED PURCHASES. HOWEVER TWO BILLS THAT I PAY HAVE MY CARD ON FILE AND I WILL START PAYING THEM A DIFFERENT WAY.

LHOHLER- BOTH TIMES IT HAS BEEN AN AUTO WEBSITE, BUT NOT THE SAME ONE. I HAVEN'T BOUGHT CAR PARTS FOR YEARS AND THESE ARE FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE CARS. BOTH TIMES IT WAS ONLY $10. THOUGH, SO THE BANK HAS GIVEN ME A CREDIT.

MAC-I DID INFORM THE BANK THAT IT HAS HAPPENED TWICE AND ASKED IF THERE WAS ANYTHING I COULD DO. THEY ASKED IF I HAD FILED A POLICE REPORT, AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD SEND ME A NEW CARD AND CLOSE THAT ACCOUNT. THEY CONSIDERED THE FILE CLOSED. CALLING AND TALKING TO A SUPERVISOR IS A GOOD IDEA! I HAVE WATCHED THE BORGIAS A FEW TIMES. I DON'T GET THAT CHANNEL, BUT SOMETIMES THEY HAVE A FREE PREVIEW. I ENJOYED IT, AND IT WAS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THINGS ARE SOO DIFFERENT FROM THE CHURCH OF TODAY. PEOPLE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE RELIGIOUS DOING SO MANY EVIL THINGS.

JOSHWATS-THE LETTER HAS BEEN SOO SLOW IN ARRIVING, AS I TOLD LINDA! I AM GOING TO CALL AND SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING I CAN DO TO HURRY IT UP. I APPLIED IN MARCH AND AM STILL WAITING!

GOOD MORNING, TEAM!
JUST STOPPING BY TO SAY "HI" AS I HAVE SOME EMAILS TO GET DONE. I AM VERY EXCITED BY THE IDEA OF USING MY SCIENCE BACKGROUND TO WORK ON SOME MAGAZINE ARTICLES FOR CHILDREN'S MAGAZINES AND AM SENDING OUT SOME INQUIRIES TODAY. MY INSTRUCTOR IS ENCOURAGING THIS AS MANY PEOPLE WHO WRITE FOR CHILDREN FOCUS ONLY ON FICTION.

JOSH - IN MY RESEARCH I DISCOVERED THAT HIGHLIGHTS MAGAZINE FOR CHILDREN HAS A NEW CONCEPT CALLED "HIGHLIGHTS HIGH FIVE" THAT IS FOR KIDS ABOUT YOUR NEPHEWS' AGE. THIS IS A GREAT MAGAZINE THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK OUT. IT MIGHT BE FUN TO SUBSCRIBE AND HAVE SOMETHING TO SHARE WITH THEM.

MAC - HOPE YOUR MOM CONTINUES TO EAT LIKE SHE NEEDS TO. I ADMIRE THE WAY THAT YOUR FAMILY KEEPS HER LIVING WITH YOU. I WISH I LIVED CLOSER TO MY DAD.

SHERRY - HOPE YOUR MOUTH IS BETTER SOON. I HATE MOUTH PAIN! YOUR CHICKEN AND VEGGIES WITH RICE SOUNDED DELICIOUS!

ALL OF YOU GETTING READY FOR MEDICAL TESTS - I WISH YOU THE BEST!
BYE NOW! CORGIMARY

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well tonight. This week it seems like stress is my middle name. Oh well. Today was a work at home day and then call the bank to see what to do about my debt load. A painful talk but absolutely necessary.

Sherry - I'm sorry to hear about your painful mouth. It is so hard to enjoy the food we grow when we're hurting. I hope it gets better soon for you.

Oma and Dusty - I hope your tests and appointments go the way you want. It's never easy when we have to deal with things we cant explain.

Mac - It sounds like you have had one busy week. I'm glad to hear that things with your mum are improving. I hope it continues. Do you have any more travels planned? I have seen The Borgias listed in the TV listings but haven't had the chance to watch. I think I'll have to check it out. Perhaps it is available online somewhere.

Lynn - Have you considered designing yards for a living? You sound like you are very good at it. The layouts you've described sound fabulous. The best part is you wouldn't have to do the heavy lifitng. I hope there are pictures. The whole yard sounds beautiful.

Wispy - The idea of a tree room sounds interesting to me but I'm having trouble imagining it. I hope you have a chance to take some photos.

Corgimary - Good luck with the courses. I suspect that you like to be busy with something..either teaching or learning. I hope the courses go well for you. I'm also interested in what you come up with for your book. Are you targeting a certain age range? I have 3 nephews under 5 and they are voracious readers.

Cerebellum - I hope you get the letter that you need so the appeal can move forward. I have a friend who is dealing with the government to try and get housing. It can be incredibly difficult when you are dealing with government. I don't even think that there is a word for how slow they can move! Best of luck.

Don't know when I'l be back in. Have a great weekend if I don't get back in.

HI EVERYONE........... I JUST LOST MY POST.......... MY COMPUTER IS SHUTTING DOWN ON ME AGAIN........ SO I WILL TRY THIS AGAIN....... I GOT PRETTY FAR LAST TIME....... HOPE I CAN MAKE IT TO THE END.......

IN THE KITCHEN MOST OF THE DAY....... MARINATED MY CHICKEN IN WHORCHESTER SAUCE... LEMON... GARLIC AND BALSAMIC VINEGAR... IN THE MEAN TIME I STIR FRIED A BUNCH OF VEGGIES...... AFTER I COOKED THE CHICKEN I ADDED IT ALTOGETHER....... AND WILL HAVE IT ON TOP OF RICE WITH SHRIMP..

LYNN...... I WISH MY MOUTH WAS BETTER BUT NOT YET..... I WAS JUST THINKING OF BUILDING A ARBOR OR ARCHWAY NEXT YEAR...... I WILL PUT THE RED RUNNERS BEANS ON IT.... THEY HAVE COVERED ALL THOSE BLACK LATTICE FENCES... AND THE OTHER 3 I BOUGHT..... THE RED FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING EVERYWHERE... IT SURE LOOKS GORGEOUS. I SEEN THOSE FIBER CEREAL BREADING FROM HUNGRY GIRL...... ZUCCHINI STICKS SOUND GOOD.... IF I KNEW HALF OF WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT COMPUTERS... EBOOKS.. IPADS .. ETC...... I'D BE DOING GREAT..

LINDA........ GOOD TO HEAR DH IS GOING TO SEE THE DOC ON FRIDAY....... I HOPE IT'S ALL GOOD NEWS........ I HAVE CHECKED OUT A FEW RESTAURANTS FOR DIFFERENT MEALS....... IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE SOME OF THEM THAT ARE SUPPOSE TO BE LOW/CAL HAVE THE MOST CALORIES..

CORGIMARY............. SOUNDS LIKE YOUR KEEPING BUSY WITH RESEARCHING FOR YOUR CLASSES AND GOING GOOD WITH THE BOOK.... STILL HITTING THE EXERCISE.. LILY SOUNDS TOO CUTE DANCING WAITING FOR HER MEAL.

DUSTY......... GOOD LUCK AT THE LAB TEST AND SEEING THE DOC...... HOPE IT COOLS DOWN FOR YOU SOON......... WE'RE HAVING MUCH LESS HEAT....... FROM 31C TO ONLY 19C TODAY... CUDDLES RUNNING FOR THE RABBIT WOULD BE SO NEAT TO SEE......

CEREBELLUM.......... I DON'T DO ANYTHING ONLINE WITH MY BANK ACCOUNT. OR GAVE ANY OF THAT KIND OF INFO EITHER....... I HAVE NEVER BOUGHT ANYTHING OR SENT MONEY ANYWHERE... BUT I DO USE MY CARD FOR DEBIT AND PAYING FOR GROCERY'S ETC..... SURE HOPE IT ALL WORKS OUT FOR YOU GETTING SOME HELP...

OMA......... YOU MUST HAVE JUMPED IN WHILE I WAS POSTING..... THE VISIT WAS WONDERFUL....... WE WENT INTO EDMONTON........ DID LOTS OF SHOPPING.... I WALKED MORE THEN I HAVE WALKED SINCE I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER........ I USE TO GET THAT AMASOL..... BUT THEY DON'T SELL IT ANYMORE...... SO THEY PHARMACIST GAVE ME THIS OTHER STUFF THAT'S SUPPOSE TO WORK.... BUT IT NEVER DID...... I JUST HOPE THIS NEW MED FROM THE DOC WORKS....... I HOPE YOU GET SOME GOOD NEWS WITH ONE OF THESE TESTS.... IT'S JUST CRAZY WITH HOW LONG YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR CERTAIN ONES....

MAC.......... WELL THE IDEA OF THE SMALLER PLATE HAS BEEN WORKING FOR MOM SO FAR.... AND TWO DAYS IN A ROW....... YOU MIGHT HAVE GOT YOURSELF A NEW TRICK.... AND NOT EVEN HAVING TO USE THE SMALL ONE TODAY...... WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT IF SHE KEPT EATING THIS WAY..... I KNOW IT WOULD CERTAINLY TAKE A LOT OF STRESS FROM YOU....... SO YOU TIMED THAT NOT SHOPPING REAL GOOD YESTERDAY....... LOL..... I SURE KNOW HOW YOU FEEL AFTER A COUPLE DAYS OF PUSHING YOURSELF...... I'M NOT USE TO GOING OUT DAILY....... SO WHEN MOM AND SIS WERE HERE.... I DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE HOW MUCH WALKING I WAS DOING... BUT WAS SURE BEAT AFTER THEY LEFT.... BUT A GOOD FEELING..... HOPE YOU GET A BETTER SLEEP TONIGHT.......

OKAY GANG.......... I'M OUT OF HERE TOO...... SEE YOU ALL ON FRIDAY....

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

FIANALLY SOME PEACE AFTER QUITE A DAY. BETWEEN ME BAKING CAKE AND MARY MAKING WHAT WE CALL TABLET N SCOTLAND,(A TYPE OF FUDGE IF YO WILL BUT NOT THE SAME; CANNOT REALLY DESCRIBE IT), THEN WITH GETTING MEALS AND ALL THE CLEANING DOWN WE HAVEHAD A BUSY OLD TIME OF IT. I STILLHAVE SOME BAKING LEFT TO DO BUT AT LEAST I HAVE THE KITCHEN TO MYSELF TOMORROW SO I CAN GET ON WITH IT.

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT MUM IS UP TO BUT, SUSPICIOUS SCEPTIC THAT I AM, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT IT IS NOW TWO DAYS IN A ROW WHERE SHE HAS EATEN ALL OF HER FOOD. GOT TO BE A RECORD, LOL. I DID NOT EVEN HAVE TO USE A SIDE PLATE EITHER AS SHE ACTUALLY REQUESTED WHAT SHE WANTED, AND THAT WAS A SALAD, SO SHE HAD SOME HAM, LETTUCE,TOMATO, CUCUMBER, AND A BOILED EGG. THAT IS A LOT FOR HER BUT SHE CLEARED HER PLATE AND THEN TOOK FOUR CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS TO BED WITH HER FOR HER SUPPER. I WILL RESERVE JUDGEMENT FOR NOW THOUGH AS I HAVE SEEN THIS HAPPEN EBFORE AND SHE IS OK FOR A FEW DAYS AND THEN WILL RELAPSE. WILLNOT SAY ANYTHING ELSE BUT WILL LET YOU KNOW IF IT LASTS EVEN A WEEK.

ANYHOW, TIME TO CATCH UP WITHYOU ALL.

DUSTY, I WISH OYU LUCK WITH THE TESTS AND HOPEFULLY YOU WILL FIND THE ANSWERS YOU ARE SEEKING. WHAT JOY TO SEE CUDDLES DOING WHAT COMES NATURALLY. I REMEMBER ONE DAY WHEN LUCKY WAS YOUONG HE GOT HOLD OF A BABY RABBIT. MARY WENT OVER TO SEE WHAT HE WAS DOING AND HE WAS PRODDING IT AS IF TO SAY COME OUT TO PLAY. THE POOR THINGMUST AHVEBEEN FRIGHTENED TO DEATH, ALTHOUGH HE DID NOT REALISE THAT AT THE TIME. UNFORTUNTAELY, HER LEARNED ALLT OO QUICKLY AS HE CAUGHT AN ADULT IN OUR GARDEN. ON NEUTRAL TERRITORY HE WAS FINE BUT COME INTOT HE GARDEN AT YOUR PERIL. GOOD IDEA TO KEEP THE HOSUE SHUT UP. IT WILLSTILLG ET WARM OF COURSE, BUT NOT AS BAD AS OUTSIDE. IHAVE EXPERIENCED THIS AND HAVE GIVEN THANKS FRO AIR CONDITIONING A FEW TIMES, EVEN IF IT IS UNHEALTHY FOR YOU.

CEREBELLUM, RE THE CHARGE ONOYUR ACCOUNT; YOU SHOULD INFORMT HEBANK THAT THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED, THAT YOU DO NOT DO INTERNET BANKING OR USE YOUR CARD ONTHE NET AND IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN THEN YOU WILL TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE AND ADVISE PEOPLE WHY YOU ARE DOING IT. BANKS CANNOT AFFORD NEGATIVE PUBLICITY RIGHT NOW AS THEY ARE IN A BAD WAYWITH THE PUBLIC AS IT IS. SPEAK DIECTLY TO THE BRANCH MANAGER AND SEE WHAT HE/SHE AHS TO SAY. IF OYU DO NOT GET ANY JOY THEN WRITE TO EHAD OFFICE AND ADDRESS IT EOPRSONAL FOR AND FIND OUT THE NAME OF THE CEO. IT WILL LIEKLY BE READ BY ONE OF HIS ASSISTANTS BUT AT LEAST YOU WIKLL GET A RESPONSE THAT WAY. AS FOR MU AND THOSE DRINKS; SHE WAS ONT HEM FOR QUITE A WHILE AFTER SHE CAME TO LIVE WITH US AS SHE HAD TO GAIN WEIGHT QUICKLY AND ALSO GET SOME PROTEININTO HER. I HAVE SUGGESTED I SPEAK WITHT HE DOCTOR ABUOT GETTING THEM AGA8N AAS SHE CAN GET THEM FREE OF CHARGE IF FOR MEDICAL REASONS. SHE SAYS NO. IF SHE WANTS THEM SHE WILLGO OUT AND BUY THEM. SO NOTHING DOING ON THAT SCORE. THE THING IS SHE ACTUALLY LIKED THEM AND ESEPCIALLY AS SHE WAS ABLE TO CHOOSE HER FAVOURITE FLAVOURS. I WILL JSUT SEE HOW THIS EXPERIMENT GOES AND THEN TAKE IT FROM THERE.

OMA, ARE YOU EVER IN? CRIKEY, YOU ARE SO BUSY AND ARE ALWAYS GOING SOMEWHERE. HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD DAY. JUST GOT HOLD OF OUR LAST AS I WAS ABOUT TO LOG OUT. I WISH YOU GOOD LUCK WITH THE DOCUMENTING. IT CAN BE SO TIME CONSUMING AND TIME IS NOT SOMETHING I THINK YOU HAVE TOO MCH OF THESE DAYS EBING SO BUSY. HOWEVER, IF YU CAN MANAGE IT THEN I THINK IT COULD WELL PROVE TO BE ANINVALUABLE EXERCISE. IS THERE NOTHING ELSE THAT YOU CAN TAKE INSTEAD OF PREDNISONE? IF THE SIDE EFFECT IS WEIGHT GAIN THEN THIS IS CLEARLY GONG OT HAVE A MORE SEVERE MEDICAL IMPACT AS WITH WEIGHT YOOYU CAN SPEAK TO YOUR DOCTOR,PUT IT THE WAY I SEE IT, AND SEE IF YOU CANNOT GET AN ALTERNATIVE WHICH WILL DO THE ASME JOB BUT WITHOUT THE SIDE EFFECTS. LOOK FORWARD TO REAFG THAT BLOG SOHOPE YUO CAN GETIT DONE SOON.

CORGIMARY, I GUESS IT IS A QUESTION OF THE PUBLISHER'S JUDGEMENT WHETHER OR NOT THEY CAN SEEL A HARD COPY OF THE BOOK AND MAKE A PROFIT. WHATEVER THE CASE IW ISH YOU ALLTHE LUCK INTHE WORLD. YOUU DESERVE IT.

LYNN, YES. I NOTICED THAT WHEN I WAS OUT EYSTERDAY, AFTER A WHILE MY ARMS WERE REALLY BURNING SO I KNEW THAT I HAD GIVEN THEMA GOOD WORKOUT OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS. AND YES, THAT DEER PARK WAS ROUGH. I FORGOT TO TAKE MY GLOVES WITH ME AND ENDED UP SKINNING THE SIDE OF MY THUMB AS IT KEPT RUBBING AGAINST THE TYRE. IT JUST SHOWED ME THAT I DO NOT DO ENOUGH OF THIS TYPE OF EXERCISE THOUGH. ONLY HAVING TO USE THE CHAIR FOR DISTANCE MEANS THAT I REALLY DO NOT USE IT OFTEN ENOUGH SO THE ARM MUSCLES GET SLACK, OR AT LEAST THE ONES YOU USE WHEN PUSHING. THIS IS OPPOSED TO SOMEONE LIKE YORSELF AND,UNTIL RECENTLY, MY BROTHER WHO USESTHE CHAIR ALL THE TIME SO THE MUSCLES GET SUED TO IT. HAVING SAID THAT IC ANNOT THINKL OF ANY CHAIR USER WHO IS NOT DISPARAGING ABOUT THE CAMBER OF SOME OF THE PAVEMENTS. THE SLOPE ON SOME OF THEM IS JUST PLAIN RIDICULOUS.

LINDA, IF OYU EVER GET A CHANCE EVEN TO READ ABOUT THIS PART OF HISTORY IT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES. I ACTUALLY KNEW ABOUT IT FROM OTHER BOOKS I HAVE READ BUT THE SCREENWRITER REALLY HAS DOEN A GREAT JOB INSHOWING JUST ENOUGHTHAT YOU GET TO SEE WHAT IT WAS LIKE BUT HAS NOT GONE OTT WITH THEH BLOOD AND GORE TO PUT YOU OFF. IT IS A CHAPTER IN THE CHURCH OF ROME'S HISTORY THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO FORGET TO GIVE OYU A GLOMPSE; THE POPE WAS NOT ALLOWED TO BE MARRIED, ALTHOUGH MANY WERE AND KEPT THEIR WIVES AT BAY, BUT THEY WERE ALLOWED MISTRESSES, AS WERE THE CARDINALS. IN FACT IT IS EVEN ON RECORD THAT A KIND OF BROTHEL WAS SET UP PURELY FOR THEIR USE. THEY WERE GIVENALLT HE WEALTH AND POWER WHILST THE POOR WERE ALLOWED TO STARVE, AND THEY THOUGHT NOTHING OF TAKING A LIFE IF IT SUITED THEIR ENDS TO KEEP THEMINPOWEWR. THE BORGIAS WEREA PARTICUALRLY NASTY LOT THOUGH. TODAY ONE OF THE REASONS THAT A POPE IS CHOSEN SO LATE IN LIFE IS TO PREVENT THE DEBAUCHERY AND USURPING OF POWER FROM EVER HAPPENING AGAIN. THERE IS A LOT MORE TO IT THAN EVEN THE DRAMA CAN SHOW AND IT IS WELL WORTH READING ABOUT IF YOU CAN BE INTERESTED. I RECOMMEND A BOOK CALLED TEH GRAIL ENIGMA BY LAURENCE GARDNER. IT IS NOT ABOUT THE HUNT FORTHE HOLY GRAIL AS MANY OF THIS TITLE ARE BUT RATHER IT DETAILS A POTTED HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY, AND I MEAN POTTED BUT SO INSIGHTFUL. YOU MAY GET ONE OR TWO SURPRISES. AS FOR THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION; I REALLY DO FEEL FOR THE POEPLE THERE. IT MUST EB A NIGHTMARE FOR THEM. NOTONLY THAT BUT BUSINESSES WILL BE LOSING TRADE. WE ARE ACTUALLY EXPERIENCING THE SAMETHING IN LONDON RIGHT NOW AS THE PARAOLYMPICS HAVEJUST STARTED. A FORTNIGHT AGO IT WAS THE MAINOLYMPIAD AND BUSINESSES WERE UP IN ARMS BECAUSE SO MANY ROADS WERE CLOSED AND TRAFFIC RE-ROUTED THAT PEOPLE COULD NOT GET TO THE SHOPS TO BUY THE MERCHANDISE. EVEN TOURISM TOOK A HIT AS MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY STAYED AWAY FROM LONDON BECAUSE THEY DID NOT WANTTO GET CAUGHT UP WITH THE OLYMPIC TRAFFIC AND MANY HOTELS AND BED AND BREAKFAST PALCES MADE A LOSS OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS. IT MAY HAVE LOOKED GOOD ON TV BUT NOT MANY OF THE TRADERS INT HE AREA HAS A GOOD WORD TO SAY ABOUT THE GAMES. HAVING SAID THAT THE ONE GOOD THING TO BE HIGHLIGHTED IS THELACK OFPROPER DISABLED ACCESS TO THE UNDERGROUND TRAIN SYSTEM AS ONLY 66 SYATIONS OUT OF OVER 200 HAVE STAFF AND FACILITIES FOR WHEELCHAIR AND DISABLED USERS. IT AHS ALSO BEEN HIGHLIGHTED THAT MANY BUSES ARE NOT CATERING FOR DISABLED USERS EITHER. WHILST BSUES ALL HAVE TO AHVE DISABLED RAMPS FITTED, NOT ALL OF THE DRIVERS ARE WILLING TO GET OUTOF THEIR SEATS TO OPEN THEM UP AND, AS THERE AREONLY EVER TWO SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR WHEELCHAIR USERS, MOSTOF THE TIME THEY ARE TAKEN UP BY MOTHERS WITH PRAMS, WHCIH THEY ARE NOT MEANT TO DO UNLESS THERE IS NOT A NEED FOR A DISABLED USER TO USE THE SPACE. THIS IS LAW BUT IS OT BEING ENFORCED. OUR TRANSPORT FOR LONDON BOSS WAS PUT ON TV ANDHAD TO PARRY SOME PRETTY AWKWARD QUESTIONS ABOUTTHIS AND IN PARTICULAR WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE APRAOLYMPIANS LEAVE. WJHILST THEY ARE HERE THE DISABLEDARE CATERED FOR BUT THEN THERE ARE PEOPLE STANDING BY TO DO THAT. THESE PEOPLE WILL NOT BE THERE AFTER THE GAMES SO WHAT HAPPENS THEN. HE COULD NOT REALLY GIVE A SATISFACTORY ANSWER. I GUESS WE ARE LUCKY IN SCOTLAND. WE DO HAVE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT RULES AND REGULATIONS AND NO MATTER WHAT STATION YOU NEED, YOU CAN BOOK ASSISTED TRAVEL AND SOMEONE WILLBE THERE TO HELP YOU ON AND OFF THE TRAIN NO MATTER WHAT YOUR DISABILITY. THE SAME APPLIES TO OUR BUSES AND A DRIVER WILL BE SACKED IF HE REFUSES TO ASSIST AYONE WHO REQUIRES IT.

OK FOLKS, I AM FEELING A LITTLE JADED SO AM GOING TO CALL IT A NIGHT. WILL TRY AND READ FOR HALF AN HOUR AND THEN IT IS DEFINTELY LIGHTS OUT.

ENJOY THE REST OF YUR DAY AND I WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU ALL AGAIN TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT AND GLOD BLESS.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

I READ THE POSTS ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE 28th SO HAVE CAUGHT UP SOME AGAIN AND REALIZED I MUST HAVE MISSED SHERRY'S MOM'S VISIT. HOW WAS IT SHERRY? HOW IS YOUR MOUTH IS IT GETTING BETTER? NOT SURE IF IT IS STILL AVAILABLE BUT I USED SOMETHING CALLED AMOSAN FOR CANKER SORES IN MY MOUTH. YOU JUST RINSE WITH IT. ASK YOUR PHARMACIST. I HAVE A BUNCH OF RED TOMATOES AND AM GOING TO GET BEN TO PICK THEM WITH WILLOW WHEN HE GETS HER TODAY. THEY ARE HEADING UP TO EDMONTON TONIGHT. IT IS ALLAN'S MOM'S BIRTHDAY TOMORROW AND THEY ARE GOING TO BURY HER ASHES. THE WHOLE FAMILY WILL BE THERE. WILL BE ROUGH ON THE KIDS.

LINDA BOY YOU SURE KEEP YOURSELF BUSY. IT IS NICE TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH PEOPLE FAR AWAY.

MAC YOUR SHOW SOUNDS GOOD AND HERE'S HOPING THAT THE SMALL PLATES KEEP ON WORKING. GOOD FOR TRYING NEW THINGS. HAVEN'T GOT THE BLOG DONE YET BUT HOPE TO DO IT TODAY AND THEN WILL GO BACK AND DO ALL THE OTHERS I PROMISED.SEPTEMBER I WANT TO START ALL OVER WITH DOCUMENTING EVERYTHING ETC AND SEE IF I CAN'T GET OFF SOME OF THIS WEIGHT FROM THE PREDNISONE.

LYNN WAY TO GO PRELOADING THE IPAD. MY GRANDKIDS ARE REAL WIZZES WITH THEM BUT I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO FIGURE IT OUT AND THEY ALWAYS WANT ME TO TRY ONE OF THEIR GAMES.

DUSTY SEEMS LIKE YOUR TEMPS ARE IN THE EXTREMES. OURS HAVE DROPPED LIKE CRAZY AND ALL THE TALK OF RAIN HAS TURNED OUT TO BE ONE 5 MINUTE SHOWER. NOT NEARLY ENOUGH. IN SOME AREAS THE TEMPERATURE DROPPED DOWN TO FREEZING LAST NIGHT SO MAY HAVE TO RUN OUT TO THE TRAILER AND WINTERIZE IT AS WE STILLHAVE WATER IN THE LINES. WAS HOPING THE COLD TEMPS WOULD HOLD OFF FOR A WHILE LONGER.

CORGISMOM WHAT KIND OF CLASSES ARE YOU TAKING ON LINE?

CEREBELLUM I AGREE THEY SHOULD HAVE SENT THE LETTER OUT LONG AGO. MAYBE YOU NEED TO CALL BACK AND ASK TO SPEAK TO THE SUPERVISOR AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

WELL I SAW THE DR TODAY AND HE IS GOING TO SEND OUT A COUPLE OF REFFERALS AND I AM GOING TO HAVE AN UPPER GI NEXT WEEK TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON. THEN IT IS SIT BACK AND WAIT FOR THE APPOINTMENTS WHICH COULD TAKE FOREVER. ALSO HAVE TO GET SOME BLOOD WORK DONE AND MY ANNUAL MAMMOGRAM SO ANOTHER BUSY WEE IN STORE AS MY PHYSIO IS BACK FROM HOLIDAYS SO WILL BE SEEING HER AGAIN. HOPEFULLY WIL HEAR THE RESULTS OF THE CT SCAN NEXT WEEK AS WELL. WILL KEEP TRYING TO GET AHOLD OF THE PAIN SPECIALIST.

This morning I took a 45 minute walk before going to the store to pick up a few items. I also have been conversing with an out of state cousin by email. That has been keeping me a little busy and nice to stay in touch with relatives that I never see. I have taken a prescription to the pharmacy to get some meds refilled. Whenever I feel that my shoulder may be having some aggravating pain again, I take one of the pills that the doctor gave me. He gave me meds through June 2013. They are not for pain but for inflammation.

Mac - the program you had watched, The Borgia's sounded fascinating. I am glad that you got through the electrical storm and it sounds like the weather may be back to normal now. Yes, the panhandle of Florida is at the northwest part of the start next to Alabama. I actually live near the Tampa area which is on the coastal west side of the state. From what I see on the news, The Republican National Convention, going on in Tampa, is really keeping the city hopping. I feel sorry for the people that work in the city and have to drive around the city. Before we left Florida, a map was shown on tv of all of the streets and bridges that were closed for the convention visitors. It truly looked like a nightmare for transporation.

Sherry - how are you feeling today?

Lynn - that was very nice of you to load up the info on your SIL's new IPAD. I am sure she is going to enjoy it. I am also the type that prefers a keyboard.

Oma - you are definitely busy.

Dusty - the hot weather is rough in the midwest. I know that as we are in Ohio for a couple of weeks. it is nearing 90 degrees. It is also forecast to rain much of the weekend with is irritating since it is Labor Day weekend. I am not certain what we have planned for the weekend but have considered taking flowers to my parents graves.

Corgismom - I hope that your online session is going well today.

Cerebellum - wow, that is so ridiculous that they have not sent out the denial letter yet. It amazes me that they system does not take into account how important this is to us. After all, you need the denial letter before you can file an appeal. And this sets you back the longer you have to wait. I also hope that the bank finds out why you are getting this charge on your account since you are not shopping online, using your debit card, etc.

Monica - hope you are doing well.

Good Morning team,
Sunny and nice today, probably it will hit about 90 so I'm heading out this morning to do some watering before it warms up. I'd also like to do some measuring at the end of the house for the arbor I'd like to build. . .but I'll need Kelby around to hold the other end of the tape. Once I get it designed then I have a better chance of talking Nick into doing it. . .he likes to see pictures LOL.

Dusty. . .sounds like it will be too hot for you again. . .like me you get stuff done early on the hot days! I gather the rabbit managed to escape and Cuddles just got a great excursion? Hope the blood work goes well and you get some numbers you feel you can trust. I'll pop you a sparkmail one day soon. . I'm a procrastinator. . with some of my genealogy stuff. I've got lots of Mayflower/New England/Midwest but my husbands family was in Minneapolis from the 1850's to the 1950's, so we've got Minnesota connections.

Sherry. . .is your mouth better today? at least your weather has cooled so you don't have to spend so much time watering. I haven't been up top to visit my veggies for a couple of days, so I'm sure there are more ripe zucchini. I've been trying the Hungry Girl recipe for baked onion rings, using the fiber one cereal as the breading, and making zucchini sticks with it for lunch. Fairly low cal, but for all the cocktail sauce I eat then with LOL

Mac. . .Hope the experiment with mums food on the small plate works out. . sound's promising so far. I woke up in the middle of the night for an hour or so but managed to get back to sleep. . .at least I didn't get up to do the laundry LOL. Are your arms sore from all the recent excursions? That animal park sure sounded like rough going.

Corgismom. . .did your daughter's cat go to college with her or is she living with you? A comfortable chair would be a great thing as you are spending so much more time writing at home.. . have you thought of looking at the thrift store? My local Salvation army always has a big row of excess office type chairs, and they are fairly cheap, 10..0 or so I think.

Cerebellum. . .so you don't have any idea which store is bringing up the excess charges? I don't check my account closely enough and do quite a bit of online shopping, netflix etc, but I haven't noticed any problems. My son just had a 900 dollar charge at some sportings good store in Texas come through on his charge card, so his account number has been stolen. . .luckily the charge company covers the fraudlent charges. . .and it happens to them a lot, which explains why their interest rates have stayed so high while mortgages etc have gone lower.

Linda. . .good that your husband will go through with the doctor's visit. . .I guess you've impressed upon him the need for it! I love that there is a law here in CA that all restaurants have the calories on the menu. . .and like you I'm sometimes shocked at how many are in things that I would formerly thought of as healthy choices!

Wispy. . .greetings. . .are you enjoying the tree room? So is should be early spring for you now. . .do you plan any gardening or is it too soon yet.

I'm leaving the computer now to head to the veggies, otherwise I'll get caught up in online stuff and never make it outside. 6 members of the family got together and bought my SIL an Ipad for her 60th birthday. . .she has never had a computer but has been using an Ipad at Safeway where she works and loves it. But since she doesn't have internet access at home I've been preloading the Ipad for her with some of my book colletion, some music, family photos, and some free games. I spent most of yesterday on it, and sort of had to learn the Ipad as I went. . .I'm a confirmed keyboard person and not too comfortable with itunes or touchpads. . Kelby had to help in the beginning! Lynn

I CALLED ABOUT THE DENIAL LETTER FOR ASSISTANCE CLEANING ETC. IT HASN'T BEEN SENT YET. I GOT THE CALL THAT THEY WERE GOING TO SEND IT ON THE 16TH AND STILL HAVEN'T RECEIVED IT!
I ALSO WENT OVER MY BANK STATEMENT AND THERE WAS A CHARGE I DIDN'T MAKE. LUCKILY IT WAS ONLY FOR $10. SO THE BANK GAVE ME A CREDIT, BUT THIS IS THE SECOND TIME. THE LAST TIME, THEY GAVE ME A NEW CARD AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN.
I DON'T PUT ANY BANKING INFO ON THE COMPUTER, AND DON'T USE THE DEBIT CARD (THAT IS ATTACHED TO MY CHECKING) WHEN I BUY ANYTHING ONLINE, AND I AM NOT SURE WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT.

MAC- I AGREE, THAT IF IT DOESN'T AFFECT THEM THEN THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE, DON'T REALLY SEEM TO CARE! SOME DOCTORS ARE THE SAME WAY. PUTTING MUM'S FOOD ON SMALLER PLATES IS A GOOD IDEA! HAVE YOU EVER TRIED GETTING HER TO DRINK THOSE DRINKS WITH ALL THE VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS IN THEM. I KNOW IN THE STATES A LOT OF OLDER PEOPLE THAT DON'T EAT RIGHT, DRINK THEM.

CORGIMARY-I GET A LOT OF HELP FROM MY FRIENDS, BUT THOUGHT IF I GOT REGULAR ASSISTANCE IT WOULD GIVE THEM A BREAK. AFTER ALL THEY HAVE LIVES TOO.

Good Morning/ Evening everyone! emoticon
I hope you are all well, glad to see Mac is feeling rested today.
This has to be a short one as I must get ready and go to my Dr. & Lab appointments for today. My dh agreed with you Mac regarding the labs and so I am going to have them again at my other doctor, it will be costly but at least I will know if I can/ should test this new clinic I went to for the first time and had all these conundrums.
I have set the water going in another garden, spent quite some time outside with Cuddles who spied a rabbit and there was no dissuading her from taking off across the acre to follow said rabbit. Who said only foxes were wiley? Cuddles is enjoying the squirrels, birds and the rabbits. For the first time today she let out a short bark in excitement as she wanted oh so much to get to that rabbit.

I have closed up the house ( closed the windows, drawn the drapes) as it will be hotter today than yesterday, made dinner which is resting nicely in the refrigerator and eaten breakfast, cleaned the kitchen,;taken out the trash & recycling. Now I have to get my paper & questions together, take my shower and dress for my appointment.

Take care have a emoticon rest of today, stay cool and hydrated!

SECOND ATTEMPT. PRESSED THE WRONG ICON AND LOST THE POST. THIS TIME MY FAULT.

SO.....

HELLO EVERYONE.

YESTERDAY WE HAD THAT ELECTRICAL STORM WHCIH I MENTIONED. PRIOR TO THAT IT WAS NOT A BAD DAY. WE ALL WENT INTO TOWNINTHE MORNING BUT I MANAGED TO GET OUT OF SHOPPING AS I HAD TO GET MY PHOTO TAKEN FOR MY HEALTH PASS. I DULY MET UP WITH MARY AND MUM AT THE SUPERMARKET AFTERWARDS. I ACTUALLY TIMED IT JUST RIGHT AS THEY WERE JUST COMING OUT WHEN I GOT THERE.

DURING THE ADFTERNOON MUM AND I WATCHED SOME MORE OF THE BORGIAS WHCIH I HAD RECORDED. IT IS A HISTORICAL DRAMA AOUT THE TIME WHEN THE BORGIAS MORE OR LESS RULED ROME AND BOY WERE THEY RUTHLESS. IT SHOWS WHAT THE CHURCH OF ROME WAS REALLY LIKE AT THAT TIME AND THANK GOODNESS THOSE TIMES ARE LONG GONE. JEREMY IRONS TAKES THE LEAD AS THE POPE BUT THE CASTING ALL ROUND IS SUPERB AS IS THE ACTING. NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED THOUGH AS IT REALLY IS A REALISTIC ACCOUNT WITH NO HOLES BARRED.

LAST NIGHT DURING THE STORM I DECIDED TO READ RATHER THAN WATCH ANY MORE TV. IHAD A BOOK I WANTED TO FINISH BUT IT WAS NOT UNTIL MUCH LATER THAT I DID SO. I DO NOT REMEMBER THE END OF THE STORM AS IT WAS 1AM WHEN I WOKE UP, BOOK STILL IN HAND, ON THE TOP OF THE BED. I REMEMBERED I HAD TO DO THELAUNDRY AS WELL SO WHILST THE WASHING MACHINE WENT ON I MANAGED TO EGT THE BOOK FINISHED. IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF PUTTING THE WASHING INTOT HE TUMBLE DRIER BUT BECAUSE I AHD ALREADY SLEPT THE REST OF THE NIGHT WAS NOT A GOOD ONE. FOR SOME REASON THOUGH I DO NOT FEEL TOO BAD TODAY, WHCIH IS GOOD.

I WAS MEANT TO START THE BAKING YESTERDAY BUT I HAVE LESS TO DO AS THINGS HAVE CHANGED AT THE SCHOOL SO I AM GOING TO START THAT TODAY. IT SHOULD ONLY TAKE A COULPE FO HOURS AND THERE IS TOMORROW FOR THE CHOCOLATE CAKE. I AM LEAVING THAT TO THE LAST MNUTE BEFORE DECORATING AS THERE IS NO ROOM IN THE FRIDGE TO STOP THE CHOCOLATE MELTING SO IT WILL BE SATURDAY MORNING BEFORE I GET AROUND TO THAT. I CAN STILL GETTHE SPONGE MADE THOUGH AND WRAP IT TO KEEP IT MOIST.

I STARTED THE EXPERIMENT WITH MUM YESTERDAY AND IT WENT WELL. I DID A ONE POT ALL IN STEW WITH SOME LEFTOVER MEAT IHADAND SERVED MUM'S IN ONE OF THOSE SMALL INDIVIDUAL STARTER DISHES THAT YOU WOULD USE FORTHINGS LIKE SOOUFFLES ETC, ALTHOGH NOT A RAMEKIN. THAT IS TOO SMALL. THE MIND MUST HAVE SAID SMALLER POT SMALLER PORTION SO SHE ATE THE LOT. IN FACT, I GAVE HER THE SAME AMOUNT I WOLD NORMALLY HAVE GIVEN HER ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T TELL HER OF COURSE. WE WILL SEE HOW TODAY GOES WHEN I SERVE HERS UPON A SIDE PLATE.

ANYWASY, TO THE POSTS.

SHERRY, AS OYU SEE I DID NOT EGT AROUND TO DOING ANYTHING LAST EVENING. I THINK WITH ALLTHE WHEELCHAIR EXERCISE OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS THINGS CAUGHT UP WITH ME. I AM NOT USED TO GOING OUT THIS OFTEN BUT IT HAS SURE BEEN GOOD EXERCISE. A PITY I CANNOT ADD IT TOMY EXERCISE MINUTES, LOL. YOU MUST LET US KNOW ABOUT THAT CHICKEN RECIPE. IF IT WORKED OUT THEN PLEASE SHARE. HOPEFULLY YOUWERE ABLE TO EAT IT WITHOUT ANY PAIN. IT IS SUCH A SHAME THAT FOR YOUR FIRST SEASON YOU CANNOT REALLY ENJOY THEFRUITS OF YOUR LABOURS. IS THERE ANY SIGNTHAT THINGS ARE IMPROVING FOR YOU?

DUSTY, I SEE YOU ARE A REALLY BUSY LADY RIGHT NOW BUT TRY NOT TO OVERDO IT. I AM SPEAKING WELL FROM EXPERIENCE AND IT IS A FINE LINE BETWEEN PUSHING YOURSELF TO THELIMIT AND CROSSING INTO WHERE YOUR BODY WILL REACT. OFTEN OUR MINDS CAN WILL US TO TRY THINGS AND TO GO FARTHER THAN WE SHOULD BUT OUR BODIES CAN NO LONGER TAKE THE EXTRA PUSH. PLEASE DO TAKE CARE AND ESPECIALLY IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY, WHCIH WILL ALSO NOT BE HELPING.

LINDA, THANK YOU FOR THE INFO. I HAD GUESSED IT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH SHAPE. I WILL HAVE A LOOK AT A MAP TO SEE IF I CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE ACTUAL WHEREABOUTS. AS FOR RESTAURANT FOOD; OFTEN IT IS BOUGHT IN PRE-MADE AND FROM BULK MANAUFACTURERS. THE ADDITIVES, SALT AND SUGAR THAT IS IN PREPARED FOODS IS UNBELIEVABLE AND SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE ABOUT IT. HAVING SAID THAT, SOME OF THE ADDITIVES ARE PUT IN TO RPESERVE THE FOOD OVER A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME. I LOVE EATING OUT AND WE ARE BLESSED WITH A COULPE OF RESTAURANTS THAT ACTUALLY PREPARE AND COOKTHE FOOD THEMSELVES. SOME OF TI IS STILL HIGHLY CALORIFIC, OF COURSE, BUT THERE IS THE CHOICE. I ALWAYS LOOK AT EATING OUT AS A TREAT AND AS SUCH YO AHOLDNOT COUNT CALORIES UNLESS OYU DO THIS REGULARLY. JUST ENJOY THE TIME OUT AND P[LAY CATCH UP THE NEXT DAY. I ALSO MAKE A RESTAURANT MEAL THEONLY MEAL I HAVE THAT DAY BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU MENTION. SLOWLY, SLOWLY, RESTAURANTS HERE ARE CATHCING ON AND PROVIDING MORE OF A HEALTHY CHOICE. MOST GOOD ONES NOW HAVE A DECENT SELCTION AND ESPECIALLY OF SALADS. HOPEFULLY THIS WILLC ATCH ON EVEN MORE SO THAT WE REALLY DO HAVE A CHOICE RATHER TAHN WHAT OYU WERE FORCED TO HAVE.

LYNN, SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE ALSO KEEPING YOURSELF GOPING AND ARE BUSY RIGHT NOW

OMA, I DO HOPE WILL GETS BETTER SOON. YOU ARE NEVER NOT BUSY SO A SICK CHILD WILL NOT BE FUN. GOOD LUCK WITHT HE CT SCAN. HOPE IT PRODUCES RESULTS. WILL HAVE A LOOK AT YOUR BLOG WHEN I FINISH HERE.

CORGIMARY, I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU ARE BEING SO PROACTIVE. WHEN DO YOU THINK OYU WILL BE CALLED UPON OR IS IT STILL TOO EARLY IN THE SCHOOL TERM YET? THAT BOOK WILL KEEP YOU OCCUPIED THOUGH AND I DO HOPE THAT IT IS A SUCCESS. WILL IT BE AN E-BOOK OR AN ACTUAL PAPER ONE?

MONICA, CALM DOWN. THERE IS NOTHING TO BE WORRIED ABOUT. JUST TAKE IT ONE STEP AT A TIME AND FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS. CONCENTRATE ON THE JOB IN HAND AND THEN MOVE TO THE NEXT. DO NOT TRY AND THINK OF THINGS TO COME. IT DOESN'T WORK FOR YOU.


RIGHT, THAT IS ME. I APOLOGISE IF I HAVE MISSED ANYONE BUT WILL CATCH UP LATER ON. PROMISE.

WILL NOW GO AND START BAKING AND SEEWHERE THE REST OF THE DAY LEADS ME.

TAKE CARE EVERYONE AND HAVE A SUPER THURSDAY.

I met my good friend for lunch today. I had gone on the restaurant website and and planned my meal ahead of time. I was shocked at the calories in some of the meals that I thought would be low cal. So I settled on a roasted turkey sandwich with avocado, tomato and lettuce. It was a nice time and a good meal.

Other than that I am trying to catch up with Spark and some other activities this week. Hubby confirmed with the doctor that he will be there Friday. So hope he has a good visit and finds out some things

Hope you are all having a good day.

HI TEAM! I DIDN'T GET ONLINE YESTERDAY. I HAD A MEETING WITH MY VOC. REHAB. COUNCILOR MAKING SURE I KNOW HOW TO DOCUMENT MY SUB JOB TO COMPLY WITH SOCIAL SECURITY RULES. I SPENT THE AFTERNOON IN THE LIBRARY DOING RESEARCH FOR MY CLASS. TODAY I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A REWRITE OF MY PICTUREBOOK MANUSCRIPT INCORPORATING THE INSTRUCTOR'S SUGGESTIONS. I JUST COMPLETED MY STRENGTH TRAINING EXERCISES FOR TODAY AND AM SITTING IN MY EASY CHAIR FOR A WHILE. MY DESK CHAIR THAT I USE WHILE WRITING IS AN OLD HARD WOODEN STUDENT CHAIR - I REALLY NEED A NEW ONE TO SAVE MY BACK NOW THAT I WORK AT HOME SO MUCH. MAYBE I CAN BUY ONE ONCE MY DISABILITY PAYMENTS START LATER THIS WINTER.

LINDA - HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY. I WILL BE CHECKING WITH MY BROTHER (WHO LIVES IN GAINESVILLE) LATER THIS WEEK TO SEE HOW MUCH RAIN THEY GOT.

WISPY - I READ A FANTASY BOOK (WINDS OF FATE BY MERCEDES LACKEY) WHERE ONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS BELONGED TO A TRIBE OF PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN TREE HOUSES. THEY BUILT THE TREE HOUSES TWINED AROUND THE TRUNKS OF HIGH TREES. YOUR TREE HOUSE ROOM SOUNDS JUST AS NICE.

SHERRY - HOPE YOUR MOUTH IS BETTER.

MAC - YOUR CHURCH SERVICE SOUNDS KIND OF LIKE A QUAKER SERVICE I ATTENDED A COUPLE OF TIMES. THEY CALL THEM A "FRIENDS MEETING."

LYNN - SOUNDS LIKE THE KNEE PROGRESS IS SLOW - BUT IT IS I HOPE, PROGRESS. YOUR KITTEN SOUNDS CUTE. MY DAUGHTER'S CAT, DORI, LIKES TO CLIMB INTO MY LAP IF I AM HOLDING THE LAP TOP. SHE WANTS TO SIT ON THE NICE WARM KEYBOARD...

GOLDDUST - LILY IS SLEEPING IN FRONT OF THE AIR CONDITIONER. IT HAS BEEN PRETTY HOT HERE AGAIN. I NEED TO LOG MY WORKOUT ON SPARK AND THEN FEED HER (HER FAVORITE TIME OF DAY - SHE SPENDS MORE TIME DANCING ABOUT WHILE I FIX THE FOOD THAN IT TAKES HER TO EAT IT) AFTER THAT I NEED TO FIND SOMETHING TO EAT MYSELF.
ONWARD AND UPWARD ALL! CORGIMARY

Good afternoon all,
Like Dusty, it will be hot today, so I ran around all morning scrubbing the kitchen and bathroom, starting laundry, and packed a few things that sold on ebay for shipment. . now it is lunch and relax time. . I'm thinking of starting an altered book to sell for Halloween on ebay.

Dusty. . it was me, Lynn, who was asking about your genealogy, not Linda. . .I know, the names are just too darned similar. You and Cuddles enjoy the nap. . .my new kitten, Scout, is curled up on the desk right next to the monitor taking a nap of his own.

Oma. . .sounds like a wild day of running for you. . hope the CAT scan goes OK.

Mac. . .probably a good idea to shut the computer down if you've got lightening in the area. We rarely get that around here, although sometimes in the summer if it is really hot we have temporary blackouts, and I do the same thing.

Hope everyone is having a good day. . Hi Wispy, Sherry, Linda and Corgismsom!

Afternoon everyone,
I am back from the gym, have eaten lunch, it is very hot outside so will wait to give Cuddles a bath for a bit. Taken blankets off the clothesline. Now going to wrap the present and rest for a wee bit before getting on my feet again. I did find the Birthday page and entered my info! Oma take it easy you need to get back in sync with your normal routine after traveling! emoticon
Cuddles is napping now....hmmm .....NOT a bad idea! Take care emoticon

Welcome back Oma!
Today I get to potting up those herbs & flowers, give Cuddles a bath, the gym, make the mac n Cheese, prep food for the freezer and go through more papers but get ready for my Dr appointments for the next two days. I timed it and it takes 30 minutes to clean & update my computer antivirus, etc. daily not counting a defragmentation. Another hot day expected so I will hustle to get things done early. Have a great day everyone

A Good Tuesday Evening to all of you…My World of Friends including Mac in Scotland, Josh, Monica, Ginny, Starr, Vicky, Sheila, Dee, CERREBELLUM, Onicam, Lynn, Paula, Contentchris, Sherry, Paula, Linda, Wispy and everyone else I have missed emoticon

I am bushed, along with the mind so goes the energy as we get older. Linda, My mind says I can do more than my body is willing to do! emoticon

Sherry hope your Mouth is better, suggest not starting with tomatoes…the acid could be painful IMHO! emoticon

Oma where is Lethbridge? emoticon Corgimary how is Lucy? emoticon What is she up to today? At the library I saw two other young dogs Black Lab crossed with collie!

Yes Wispy this team does make you feel as if you really know people and clearly not just what we eat & exercise. emoticon Glad to find another list-aholic. emoticon

Oh Paula! emoticon Getting medications to work can be a challenge it seems as though you are exchanging one problem for potentially other ones that is why I limit what I take and am controlling my Type II with diet & exercise.

Today I stripped the bed and washed the blanket & sheets, watered the old orchard,folded & put away laundry, talked to my daughter and assembled her birthday gift...and then I emoticon
went to the post office to drop off bill payments, Office Max, the library, Cub & Coborns (grocery stores) I picked up emoticon wrapping paper and will wrap it tomorrow.

No Linda, I didn’t get all my genealogy put to rights…I do have all the cd’s sitting together on a shelf, a bookcase full of genealogy books and files started…and between the file cabinets and the bookcase in the corner are several boxes of genealogy notes gathered years ago that have to be put on the computer! Linda I am right there with you with boxes of paper info…info gathered long before the world went digital!

I have to pick the apples Friday evening so I can deliver them to my dd on Saturday morning…she broke two toes and is hobbling around!
Watering the front lawn right now, dinner is completed and tomorrow we will have the macaroni & cheese I didn’t get to tonight. I still need to repot my herbs and a few flowers . emoticon
DH is watching NCIS right now and I have to finish putting away the groceries.

Have a great evening/ morning and Good Night Mrs. Calabash wherever you are! emoticon and sleep tight! emoticon

Mac - The Florida Panhandle got its name from its resemblance to a frying pan handle.

Sherry - I hope you can eat the veggies from your garden soon when you mouth is healed.

HI EVERYONE........... I JUST GOT BACK........... DID ALL THE GROCERY SHOPPING..... PAID THE BILLS RENT...... STORAGE........ SO THAT'S ALL DONE FOR ANOTHER MONTH.......

I HAD TO GO OUT AND WATER THE GARDEN AND EVERYTHING ELSE....... THINGS WERE PRETTY DRY OUT THERE......... I ALSO PICKED ALL MY CHERRY TOMATOES.... AND DUMPED THE DIRT IN THE GARDEN....... PUT THE POTS AND LATTICE FENCES AWAY......

I FOUND 4 BIG TOMATOES FROM MY GARDEN FINALLY......... IT'S HARD TO EAT...... THE DOC GAVE ME THIS STUFF TO USE TO FREEZE THE SORE....... THEN EAT FAST AND TAKE MY PLATE OUT RIGHT AFTER.....

I CAN ONLY EAT ONE MEAL A DAY........ SO I'M MAKING THAT ONE SUPPER....... IT'S NO FUN NOT BEING ABLE TO EAT MY OWN TOMATOES CUCUMBERS AND BEANS.... MY FIRST YEAR WITH MY OWN GARDEN AND I CAN'T EVEN EAT ANY OF IT....... I HAVE A BIT OF A CUCK AND COUPLE TOMATOES...... WHEN I DO HAVE MY TEETH IN...

I HOPE THIS NEW MED WORKS AND THE SORE IS GONE........ I CAN'T TAKE THIS MUCH LONGER......... IT'S ALSO VERY HARD TO KEEP EATING HEALTHY...... WHEN IT'S SOUPS MASHED SPUDS AND SOFT STUFF......

I DON'T SEE MY DIABETIC NURSE ANYMORE....... MY SUGAR IS WHERE IT SHOULD BE FOR MONTHS NOW..... BUT SHE HAS SENT ME TO SOMEONE THAT WILL HELP ME TO EAT CARBS WITHOUT GAINING WEIGHT AND KEEP MY SUGAR WHERE IT IS......

I HAVE A 3 DAY MENU PLAN I HAVE TO DO FOR HER........ EVERYTHING I EAT I HAVE TO WRITE DOWN..... PLUS WHAT MY SUGAR BLOOD IS BEFORE EACH MEAL AND 2 HOURS AFTER EACH MEAL...

WISPY.......... IT'S LOVELY TO HAVE BOTH OF YOUR SONS THERE TO HELP AND ENJOY...... I LIKE THE IDEA OF THE TREE IN A HOLE IN THE FLOOR..... BUT IT DOES NEED SUN....... I WAS READING WHAT YOU SAID WHEN YOU FIRST GOT ONTO SPARKS...... I WAS ALSO WHEELCHAIR BOUND..... AND TAKING THOSE FEW LITTLE STEPS...... THEN WALKING A BIT MORE EACH DAY....... AND LOOK AT US NOW..

LYNN.......... WELL IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR GETTING LOTS DONE IN THE YARD.... IT'S GOING TO BE LOOKING GREAT...... AND READY FOR THE COLD TEMPS...... NOT THAT YOU GET THAT COLD... SO THE DOC SAYS BACK TO ACTIVITY..... THAT WILL HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS... I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MANY TOMATOES I GOT OFF THE TWO POTS...... I WASHED AND FROZE THEM ALL..... I SURE HOPE TO BE ABLE TO START EATING TOMATOES AND OTHER THINGS FROM MY GARDEN SOON.

LINDA........ SO YOUR IN OHIO....... AND WITH FAMILY..... LOTS OF ACTIVITY WITH YOUR GRAND KIDS... THEY WILL KEEP YOU BUSY....... GOOD TO HEAR DH IS GOING TO SEE THE DOC.... THAT WILL TAKE SOME OF THE STRESS AWAY....... KNOWING HE'S SEEING ONE AND CAN FIND OUT IF ANYTHING IS WRONG.

PAULA........ NICE TO SEE YOU DROP IN,.......... FOR SURE FAMILY WILL KEEP YOU BUSY........ SURE HOPE THE NEW MED'S START WORKING AND NOT MAKING YOU SO TIRED........ GOOD IDEA NOT TO PUSH THIS NEW GOAL THE DOC HAS SET FOR YOU.

OMA........... HAVE A NICE TRIP TO LEFTBRIDGE.....

CHRIS.......... GREAT TO SEE YOU.......... I THINK IT'S GREAT YOU HAVE A JOB THAT WILL BRING IN SOME MONEY AND PUT YOU BACK IN THE SADDLE...... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.....

MAC........... GREAT NEWS MOM DID SOME EATING... IT'S NICE YOU COULD HAVE A BIT OF A SLEEP IN....... GOING TO BED AT 7 AM IS NOT MUCH REST.... SO HAPPY THE LUNCH CLUB WAS GREAT...... EVERYONE SMILING AND THE SONG WENT OVER REAL GOOD..... THE SMALLER PLATE DOES SOUND LIKE A GOOD IDEA.... I REALLY HOPE IT DOES WORK ON MOM..... BUT IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE TOO MUCH FOOD BEING ON A SMALLER PLATE........ BUT YOU HAVE TO TRY... THE BBQ SOUNDS ABOUT PERFECT..... I WANT TO USE MINE A BIT MORE BEFORE THE SNOW FLIES... THEN I WILL BE SAYING..... GEE I HARDLY COOKED OUTSIDE....... LET ME SAY I'M REALLY HOPING THESE NEW MED'S WORK ALSO FOR MY MOUTH...

OKAY GANG........ TIME TO LOG OFF AND RELAX....... WE PICKED UP SUBS FOR SUPPER....... SO THANKFULLY NO COOKING....... IT'S REALLY TOO HOT TODAY........ WE ARE AT 27C........ SUNNY AND I GOT FANS GOING ALL OVER THE HOUSE..

CHRIS, GOOD TO EE YOU POPPING IN AND LETTING US KNOW YOU ARE STILL AROUND. HOPE THINGS ARE STILL OGING WELLF OR YOU. TAKE CARE MY FRIEND.

LYNN, WATERING THE GARDEN IS THE LEAST OF MY WORRIES. ACTUALLY, THE CARROTS ARE NEARLY READY, THE FIRST LOT OF PEAS IS ALMOST THERE AND THE POTATO STALKS ARE NOW DYING OFF SO THEY WILL NOT BE LONG BEFORE I HARVEST THEM. NOT SURE ABOUT THE BEETROOT. THEY DO NOT SEEM TO HAVE GROWN MUCH BUT I AM HOPING THAT I WILL GET SOME BABY BEETS OFF THEM AND THEY ARE MUCH NICER. IT WAS FORTUITOUS TAT MY TROWEL BROKE IN A WAY AS I WAS GOING TO OPUSH MYSELF TO TRYA ND GET MSOT OF IT FINISHED TODAY. THERE IS A PATCH THAT WILL DEFINITELY NEED THE SPADE ON IT BUT THAT IS THE EASY BIT. I WAS ACTUALLY DIGGING OME SDTUFF OUT OF ONE OF THE POTS BUT THE ROOTS OPBVIOUSLY WENT DEEPER THAN I THOUGHT AND THE TROWEL JUST WASN'T STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE THE STRAIN. OH WELL, I WAS NEEDING TO REPLACE IT ANYWAY S MARY CANNOT COMPLAIN AT ME NOW, LOL. AS FOR ADDING FLAVOUR TO YOUR SALAD; WHY USE CANNED TOMATO JUICE? THAT CONTAINS SUGAR UNLESS OYU CAN GET THE EXPENSIVE STUFF WCIHIS NATURAL. USE TOMATO CONCENTRATE AND A LITTLE WATER OR STOCK AS IT IS MUCH BETTER. I STRESS CONCENTRATE BECAUSE TOMATO PUREE, THE OTHER CHOUICE, ALSO CONTAINS SOME SUGAR AS WELL AS OTHER ADDITIVES WHEREAS YOU CAN BUY THE NATURAL TOMATO CONCENTRATE, OR AT LEAST WE CAN AND IF WE CAN THEN I AM SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO. EVEN COOK OFF SOME TOMATOES, REDUCE THE WATER TO ALMOST NOTHING AND ADD A LITTLE VEG OR CHICKEN STOCK WITH A FEW MORE HERBS. YOU COULD EVEN PRE-COOK THE NOODLES IN SOME STOCK AS THEY WILL TAKE ON THE FLAVOUR OF WHATEVER YOU ARE USING. JUST SOME SUGGESTIONS OF COURSE BUT THERE ARE SO MANY OPTIONS THAT I WOULD RUN OUT OF SPACE HERE. OTHER THAN THAT IT SOUNDS LIKE A REALLY HEALTHY MEAL.

LINDA, SOUBNDS LIEK YOU ARE ACTUALLY HAVING SOME FUN TIMES. MEETING UP WITH THAT FRIEND YOU HAVEN'T SEEN WILL BE REALLY GOOD. I THINK I TOLD OYU THAT I BUMPED INTOMY OLD SUPERVISOR AT TEH DEER PARKA ND WE HAD NOT SEEN EACH OTHER FOR EIGHT YEARS SO IT ADDED TO THE DAY. GOOD IDEA TO GET YOUR HUBBY TO THE DOCTOR WHILST EH IS IN A COOPERATIVE FRAME OF MIND. I HAVE THAT PROBLEM WITH MUM AND MARY AS NERTHER LIKE GONG AND OFTEN WILL ONLY GO UNDER PROTEST. IF ITHINK THINGS ARE THAT BAD I MAKE THEM AN APPOINTMENT AND THENIT IS UP TO THEM TO PHONE IFTHEY WANT TO CANCEL. SO FAR THEY HAVEN'T AND ALTHOUGH I GET SPOKEN TO IT IS SOMETHIMES THE ONLY WAY. SO YOU GO FOR IT. JUST A QWUICK QUESTION. WHAT IS THE PANHANDLE AREA OF LOUISIANA PLEASE AND WHY IS IT SO NAMED? AT A GUESS I WOULD SAY IT IS A BAY AND HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE SHAPE BUT THIS MAY BE SO FAR OUT SO WOULD BE GRATEFUL I F YOU WOULD EXPLAIN.

OK FOLKS, THIS IS THE FIRST NIOGHT WHEN I STOP ONE OF MY MEDS. IT MAY BE OK OR IT MAY BE TRICKY BUT I WILL NOT REALLY KNOW FRO A COUPLE OF DAYS WHETHER MY BODY HAS GOT IOT OUT OF THE SUSTEM. WISH ME LUCK AS IF THIS ONE GOES OK IT BODES WEELL FOR GIVING UP THE OTHER THREE. IT WILL BE SO NICE ONLY TO HAVE TO TAKE ONE TABLET A WEEK INSTEAD OF THE EIGHT I TAKE DAILY AT PRESENT. NOT ONLY THAT BUT I HAVE TO SEE IF THE PAIN LEVELS REMAIN THE SAME AS IF THEY DO NOT THENIT MEANS I WILL NOT HAVE A CHOICE BUT WILL HAVE TO KEEP TAKING THEM ALL. A BIT OF A RISK IN A WAY BUT ONE I AM PREPARED TO TAKE AND IT IS BEING MONITORED B THE DOCTOR SO ICAN ALWAYS JUST GIVE HIM A RING.

RIGHT THAT IS IT FOR THE DAY. ANOTHER BUSY DAY AHEAD TOMORROW STARTING WITH ME HAVING TO GO SHOPPING WITHT EH GILS AS I HAVE TO GET A COUPLE OF PASSPORT SIZED PHOTOS TAKEN FOR MY HEALTH PASS. NOT LLOKING FORWARD TO THAT FOR ONCE ASI COULD BE JUST AHNGING ROUND FOR A WHOLE. OH WELL, THERE IS ALWAYS THE SHOP CAFE I SUPPOSE.

ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR EVENING AND I WILL SEE YOU ALL AGAIN TOMORROW.

Since I am in Ohio, I am busier than ever with family, etc. I walked an hour yesterday and then was on my feet with the grandchildren most of the evening. It was great to see them and both daughters. Today I took an hour walk again. I also went to the hospital with younger daughter where she had some meds to pick up. Went to the store with hubby. I talked with an old friend on the phone. I have not seen her in a year or so. We will have lunch together tomorrow. So things are busy but good. The weather in Florida is a bit better except in the panhandle near Alabama. Looks like Louisiana and that area will get the bulk of the trouble. But in a few weeks hurricane season will be over and life will be good again. I will look foward to going back. Although Ohio has great weather at this time. I am not going to have the physical until I get back to FL however, I am going to get my hubby in to a doctor we know in Ohio. I don't want him to go too long without seeing a doctor. If he says he will go NOW, I don't want to take the chance of him changing his mind. LOL He has too many aches and pains and needs to check things out.

Chris - nice to see you. Have a good day.

Mac - the lunch club sounds good. I am happy that your mother is cooperating and eating better. Good for her. I hope you enjoyed the barbecue. Sounds delicious. Sorry to hear that you are still having a good share of rain.

Paula - yes, having out of town visitors will always keep ya busy.

Wispy - that tree room sounds so lovely. I can certainly imagine that you feel like you are in a treehouse.

Lynn - glad that your ortho appointment went well. I hope Fabian is a great help to you today. Nothing like having another pair of hands to help with the yardwork. Yum, the tomatoes sound great! I love them.

Sherry - Ouch! The mouth sores are awful and painful. I hope the medicine helps.

Sorry to those I missed. Everyone have a great day!

Good Morning team,
I just got back from the orthopedic specialist and my knee is about what he expected. . .not really growing new bone over the break, but stabilizing with scar tissue. He said I can resume normal activities, so no more excuses for not exercising LOL. Today I have the neighbor's yard guy, Fabian, for four hours this afternoon, so I'll get him to do some yard work, probably the endless war on the ivy!

Chris. . .nice to see you , hope all is going well.

Mac. . Glad mom ate something at lunch club so she has had some good nutrition today. Too bad about your summer weather being so wet and you not having much time in the garden. . although if your back was starting to hurt it is just as well the trowel broke and forced you to stop! This is the time of year when I get kind of tired of my garden and having to water so much. . luckily all the weeds are gone. I've got tons of ripe tomatoes, we have been eating them every night. Last night I made a vegetarian lasagna for dinner with a quick tomato sauce of chopped up fresh tomatoes and basil that I just quick cooked for about 10 minutes. .and then I put slices of zucchini in it with the noodles and cheese. I only used about half my normal amount of noodles to lighten it up. NIck wouldn't eat it. . .to healthy for him LOL. I have to admit it was a little tasteless, and if I do it again I'll use some canned tomato sauce with my fresh chunks in it, to provide a bit more taste.

Sherry. . .so today is errand day. . .have fun running around town. I hope the doctor's new medicine helps to clear up your mouth sore so you can get back to eating!

Wispy. . .a hole in the floor might be a bit extreme LOL and I agree that there wouldnt' be enough light. Nick and I used to go to a restaurant in Napa that was a giant atrium, about 3 stories tall with skylights, and tall leafy trees growing from giant planters up to the ceiling. It had a great outdoors feeling as you can imagine. I haven't tried Cradle of Persia, but do have Cradle of egypt partially done. . right now I'm working on Around the world in 80 days, but it has a bit too much glitz and the moving flash across the puzzle bugs my eyes. My favorite of all time is the Jewel Quest series if you haven't tried those.

Josh. . .sounds like you had a fun family outing. . .my son is 27 and leave for college in about 10 days, so I'm trying to get a lot of stuff done first. . but he is feeling overworked LOL. I have to say the front yard looks great, so I'm going to let up on him. He just got out of the Marines after 8 years in and is heading to engineering school. . when he first got home in February he was at loose ends and used to working hard, so he was happy to have projects here to work on. . .but now he has relaxed some and is learning to sleep in and is less willing to put in the hours for me. Oh well.

LInda. . .It looks like Florida just got a glancing blow from Isaac, but I'm sure it is nice to be with family in Ohio. . too bad about having to reschedule the physical though, I know you were looking for some answers. Did your husband ever go for his checkup?

Dusty. . .I'm amazed by your weekly list of errands. . .I usually only go out once a week to do stuff and can't imagine having to do so much running around! Did you ever get all your genealogy moved to the bookshelves? I did that a couple of years ago and it is much easier to keep organized. . it all used to be packed in boxes in the spare bedroom closet, with whatever family line I was currently working on spread out near the computer. So much of what I have is digital, but there are still boxes of paper. Someday I need to really organize and make sure my digital is copied. . .recently I discovered I'd lost some emails from a cousin of my fathers and I sure wish I'd printed the info since she is dead now and I can't get it again!

Corgismom. . .good that the school is only 4 blocks away. . .that will make subbing so much easier. I hope the lettuce works out for you. . .still a bit hot here for me to do my fall planting although my big problem is all my summer stuff still producing and taking up the space. It is nice that your daughter's college is so close. . .even if she won't be coming home much, it will still be an easy trip when she does.

Paula. . .Hi, nice to see you popping in.. hope you feel more alert soon as you adjust to the new meds.

Oma. . .hope you are having a fun end of summer with all the grandkids.

Okay, off to have a bit of lunch, then Fabian will be here. Catch you all later, Lynn

HRLLO EVERYBODY.

WHAT A GOOD DAY TODAY. EVEN MOTHER BEHAVED AND CAME TO LUNCH CLUB. SHE DID NOT EAT EVERYTHING BUT AT LEAST SHE ATE SOMETHING. THE CHURCH CLERK EVEN SPOKE TO HER SO SHE KNEW IT HAD BEEN NOTICED.

SO, HAD A LIE IN THIS MORNING AS I DID NOT GET THAT GOOD A NIGHT AND FINALLY FELL INTO A DEEP SLEEP AT AROUND 7AM, AND THEN SLEPT UNTIL 9.30. AFTER THAT I WAS GOOD FRO THE DAY.

SO I OBVIOUSLY DID NOTHING BEFORE GOING TO THE LUNCH CLUB AND WHAT A REALLY GREAT CLUB MEETING IT WAS. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT AHPPENED BUT IT WAS LIKE THE CLUB OF OLD. RECENTLY IT AHS BEEN GETTING A BIT QUIET BUT TODAY WHAT A TRANSFORMATION AND EVEYONE LEFT WITH A SMILE. I DID THE SONG I TOOK TO CHURCH LAST SUNDAY AND IT WENT DOWN SO WELL THAT I AM NOW GOING TO BE TAKING A SONG FOR EVERYONE TO JOPIN IN WITH AT THE END OF THE MEAL. INCIDENRALLY, IF ANYONE WANTS TO LOOK THE SONG UP THEN GOOGLE BREAD AND FISHES, WHICH IS THE TITLE.

IT WAS RALLY QUITE LATE FOR A LUNCH CLUB FINISH AND MARY FDID NOT GET THERE UNTIL 2AM, AND THEN WE HAVE A THING CALLED THE CREDIT UNION. IT IS A COOPERATIVE SAVINGS SCHEME. THERE IS NO INTERST BUT, UNLIKE BANKS ETC. YU CAN PUT AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE AS YOU LIKEINTO IT AND WHEN YOU CAN AFFORD IT. IF YOU NEED A LOAN FOR ANYTHING THEY ALSO DO SMALL LOANS AT ONLY 2.5% INTEREST FIXED AND NOT APR. TELL ME A BANK THAT WILL DO THAT FOR YOU? IT IS, AS YOU SEE, NOT A PROFIT MAKING BODY AND ONLY EMMEBRS CAN ACCESS THESE LOANS, BUIT BOTH MARY AND TRISH HAVE JOINED. ANYHOW, WE WERE TALKING AND TALKING AND TALKING AND IN THE END MARY HAD TO COME AND FETCH ME AS SHE HAD FINISHED AND WAS PATIENTLY WAITING OUTSIDE WITHT HE CAR. IT WAS PAST 3PM BY THE TIME WE EVENTUALLY GOT HOME.

I THEN DID SOME STUFF ON THE INTERNET AND AM JUST N FROM AN HOUR IN THE GARDEN. I WAS FORCED TO RETIRE AFTER THIS BECAUSE I BROKE MY TROWEL, AND I HAVE NOT GOT A SPARE UNFORTUNATELY. I STILL HAVE A FAIR BIT TO DO AND TOMORROW IS A BIT HIT AND MISS. I WILL TRY AND GET OUT IF I GET A WNDOW AS IT IS SUNSHINE AND SHOWERS THAT ARE FORECAST. STILL, I DID MANAGE TO CLEAR 3 FULL LARGE POTS OF WEEDS SO I ACHIEVED QUITE A LOT, NOT TO MENTION MY BACK WAS STARTING TO ACHE ANYHOW SO IT IS OPERHAPS AS WELL I STOPPED.

STILL HAVE MUM'S SUPPER TO DO BUT THAT US EASY AS SHE IS HAVING BOILED EGG AND TOMATO SANDWICHES. SHE WILL HAVE FOUR OF THEM SO I AM HAPPY WITH HER EATING TODAY. I AM DOING A CASSEROLE TOMORROW BUT I HAVE A SMALL POT WHCIH I WILL USE FOR MUM. HOPEFULLY SHE WILL BE OK WITH THAT. MARY IS ALSO ON THE LOOKOUT FOR IN BETWEEN PLATES. SHE HAS A VERY GOOD NOTION THAT EVEN THOUGH I ONLY GIVE MUM A SMALL AMOUNT; BECAISE IT IS ON A BIG PLATE HER MIND AUTOMATICALLY THINKS IT IS TOO MUCH. IN THE INTERIM I AM GOING TO USE A SIDE PLATE AND I HAVE TOLD MUM THAT I AM TRYING THIS EXPERIMENT, ALTHOUGH SHE DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT THE PLATES YET. THE REASON I TOLD HER THAT I WAS TRYING AN EXPERIMENT WAS SO THAT SHE DID NOT THINK I WAS BEING SARCASTIC. THAT WILL BE FOR THIRSDAY THOUGH SO I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LET YOU KNOW HOW THAT GOES UBNTIL THEN.

ANYHOW, IT HAS BEEN A HAPPY DAY AND WE ARE GOING TO END IT WITH A BBQ. (MUM DOES NBOT DO BBQ'S SO JUST MARY, TRUSH AND I).

DUSTY, YES, I HAD NOT FORGOTTEN. IT IS SOMETHING I KEEP IN MY MIND ALWAYS AS IT WAS AT THAT POINT THAT JESUS SHOWED HUMILITY, AND THAT IS SOMETHING A LOT OF US COULD LEARN. I AM WITH YOU ALL THE WAY ON THAT ONE AND SOMETHING I TRY AND PRACTICE, ALTHOUGH I DO NOT ALWAYS SUCCEED UNFORTUNATELY, AND IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS FOR ME. IT IS AT SUCH TIMES WHEN I HAVE TO DRAW ON THAT INSTANCE AND I THANK YOU AS WE CAN NEVER BE REMINDED ENOUGH OF IT.

SHERRY, THERE IS NOTHING WORDS THAN HAVING A MOUTH SORE AND NOT BEING ABLE TO EAT A PROPER MEAL. I WENT THROUGH SOMETHING SIMILAR A WHILE BACK AND I ACTUALLY FORCED MYSELF IN THE END TO EAT A PROPER MEAL AS I WAS FEELING SICK AT EATING THINGS LIKE MICE AND MASHED POTATO MIXED THGETHER AND SIMILAR. SO I REALLY DO HOPE THAT THIS ANTIBIOTIC WORKS FOR YOU AND VERY QUICKLY SO THAT YOU CAN GO BACK TO A NORMAL DIET. I CANNOT SYMPATHISE ENOUGH.

OMA, IF YOU SEE THIS, HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD TRIP.

WISPY, I MUST CORRECT YOU ON THE WHEELCHAIR BIT. I HAVE TO USE A WHEELCHAIR TO GET AROUND WHEN 0OUT AS I CANNOT WALK VERY FAR WITHOUT LOCKING UP. FOR SHORT DISTANCES OF UP TO 50 METRES AND AROUND THE HOUSE AND GARDEN I AM ABLE NWO TO USE A DELTA WALKER, (THOSE 3 WHEELED WALKERS WITH BAGS ON THEM). I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT I DO NOT USE MY BAG AS I SHOUD BUT RATHER IT HAS THINGS LIKE A TROWEL AND SECATUEURS, STRING AND GARDENING GLOVES. YOU GET THE IDEA, LOL. ALTHOUGH 50 METRES DOES NOT SOUND A LOT I COULD BARELY WALK 10 AT ONE TIME SO I WILL TAKE THAT. NOW, AS FOR THE POT PLANTS; YOU CAN GET A WIDE VARIETY OF SUCH PLANTS, SUCH AS YUCCA TREES AND INDOOR PALMS. I THINK IT WOULD ADD TO THE ROOM AS IT WOULD GIVE YOU ALL YEAR ROUND FOLIAGE. SOME EVEN PRODUCE SCENTED FLOWERS BUT YOU WOULD ENED TO CHECK WITH YOUR GARDEN CENTRE ABOUT THOSE. NOT SO SURE ABOUT DIGGING A HOLE IN THE HOUSE THOUGH. THAT MAY BE A BIT TOO EXTREME. BUT I AM PLEASED YOU ARE LIKING IT AND IT CERTAINLY IS A DIFFERENT WAY OF DECORATING A ROOM. AS FOR EATING OUT; WE DO NOT HAVE A JAPANESE RESTAURANT SO I HAVE NEVEER TASTED JAPANESE FOOD, BUT ITALIAN ICE CREAM IS SOMETHING THAT IS EXTREMELY HARD TO BEAT. THAT IS ONE THNG THAT THE US HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO COPY, EVEN THOUGH SOME OF THEIR STUFF IS ALSO EXCELLENT, SUCH AS BEN AND JERRY'S. WE ARE ON TO FROZEN YOGHURT ICES AT THE OMENT. THEY ARE SO SMOOTH AND YUMMY AND DO NOT CONTAIN AS MANY CALORIES SO MAKE A REAL TREAT. AS YOU SAY, MUM IS A WORRY, BUT NO MATTER WHAT I INTEND TO STICK AT IT IN THE VAIN HOPE THAT ONE DAY SHE WILLA CTUALLY SAY ENOUGH AND REALISE AND BE SENSIBLE. SUBJECT CLOSED AS I HAVE BORED YOU ALL WITH IT TOO MUCH OF LATE, UT THANK YOU ANYWAY FOR YOUR KINDNESS. AS FOR THE CHAT AROUND THE TABLE IT WAS INDEED THE ACTUAL SERVICE. TI WAS JUST DONE IN A DIFFERENT WAY. AS THE MINISTER SAUD, IT WAS OFTEN THE WAY THAT PREACHING EAS DONE INCLUDING OF COURSE, THE LAST SUPPER. CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG BUT I BELIEVE THE JEWISH FAITH HAS A MEAL WHICH IS USED AT HOME IN MUCH THE SAME WAY. I THINK I HAVE READ ABOUT IT SOMEWHERE, ALTHOGUH CANNOT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHERE. IT WAS NOT ONLY DIFFERENT BUT WE ALL GOT SO MUCH OUT OF IT AND LEFT ON A HIGH.

PAULA, SO GOOD TO SEE OYU BACK WITH US. I DO HOPE THAT YOUR BODY CAN GET USED TO THE NEW MEDS AND THAT EVENTUALLY YOU WILL GET OVER THE SIDE EFFECTS. IF THEY OPERSIST THOUGH I WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK AND SEE THE DOCTOR ASD OTHERWISE YOUR LIFE WILL BE IN LIMBO, AND THAT IS NOT YOU. YOU ARE ALWAYS SUCH A HAPPY PERSON AND IT GTIEVS ME TO SEE OYU LIKE THIS. I WILL PRAY FOR YOU THAT YOU CAN EVENTUALLY GET THE OLD PAULA BACK AND START TO ENJOY LIFE AGAIN.

OK FOLKS, THE BBQ IS READY AND THEN MORE OF SERIES 9 OF NCIS. WE ARE NEARLY THERE. WILKL SEE YOU ALL LATER ON. I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE AS GOOD A DAY AS I HAVE HAD TODAY AND MANY MORE OF THEM TO COME.

WITH FAMILY VISITING FROM OUT OF TOWN AND GETTING USED TO ALL MY NEW MEDICINE CHANGES IS REALLY TAXING AT TIMES. SEEMS ALL I WANT TO DO IS TO SLEEP. emoticon

Hi there my friends,

Gosh Linda flying to Ohio sounds like fun. I always think of Florida as being sunshine and peace and tranquility - so sorry to hear you guys are having problems who live there, also in Louisiana. I guess these things had always happened, but these days we hear so much news worldwide, either on TV, or in real life like the friends we have all over the globe.

So sorry the fair got rained out Mac, I was thinking of you having such a lovely time. Three days of baking does sound like fun although somewhat tiring I think. Are you able to do all that work in the wheelchair. I tend to forget you are in a wheelchair you accomplish so much on a regular basis. Same with Lynn. It is wonderful to hear you getting about being able to do so much.
I tend to forget I was also wheelchair active when I first joined Spark. Beetlejuice I recall her name was and we sure did have some fun together, but the person who stole her sure did my a great big favour. I doubt if I would be active as I am today if I hadnt been motivated when I lost the chair to try and start walking a little bit - cant believe I could barely do those 8 steps to the bathroom and then made it the long way round to 24 steps with the walker. How my life has changed since joining Spark - in so very many ways. I am so grateful for this fellowship we have here. I am so loving the idea of sitting round the table, eating drinking and chatting. What a wonderful idea. It makes everything so real and that everyone is contributing from their real life experiences. Was this the actual service Mac? Im just loving it. So sorry Mum is being such a worry to you. Its so much easier for us to tell others what to do, it is always different being in the situation oneself. I am so sorry she is not wanting to eat - anything very much. I certainly do think the doc should now how hard it is the get her too eat. Wondering if they could give her something to stimulate her appetite. We are strange creatures indeed, either we want to eat stuff that is not good for us - and so often get addicted to it, or else we are at the other extreme of not wanting to eat at all. Im wondering if one could live on vitamins and supplements without eating - I mean in space they must have very little actual food. Perhaps it would be possible to feed her without her realising what is happening. Mac you are such a good son and I know you are doing everything you can. The Doc sure is the person to be able to help most.
Have to say I am still loving the tree room. I am so happy with it, just cant believe how realistic it looks. I could be in the topmost branches of a tree house. It is totally satisfying the urge I have had for so long to actually live in one. Ive always had this love for nature and wanting to live outdoors - guess it takes all sorts to make a world. :o) This morning one of the trees is giving off a sweet scent, it was just a hint since we moved the branches in, but today it is lovely. Am now thinking perhaps I could buy quite big trees in pots when these ones go and put them in the corners of the room and just add a few branches. That is another idea. DS suggested we cut a hole in the floor and plant one under the house then I would actually have the trunk as well. I am so blessed with both DS's. They are totally different from one another and yet both have strong but quite different qualities of my own. The gardening DS who helped me do the room on Sunday sees things through similar eyes to my own. He worked with me when I had the catering business and we worked so well together, he always seemed to know what I was thinking and needed doing before I voiced it, same with when we planted out this garden from scratch, and when he mentioned making a hole in the floor and planting a tree it just warmed my heart that he cared enough to think of doing that. However we decided it would most likely not get enough actual air and sun to flourish.... but I am keeping it in mind, along with the pot plants. We would need to get trees that like the shade. Other DS who enjoys my gypsy nature of travelling and eating out is spending time with me on Friday and we are going to a Japanese place this time for lunch and to an Italian Gelato place for dessert. Ice cream is wonderful there. Man alive - life is good right now.

Dusty, so lovely to be included among your friends. Doesnt this team make you feel as if you really know people, not just what we eat and exercise - but who we really are. I too am a list-aholic. I love making lists, always did and now its kind of necessary I find. :o) I've been to hosp today for diabetes eye tests - all came out good along with BP etc. Cataract surgery has been booked, so that should happen within the next six months. It seems when I was there for the last check up they overlooked booking me in, so we shall see what happens next. I am actually quite adjusted now to seeing mostly with one eye, so it doesnt really bother me that the left eye is so bad. I never knew that flowers stopped producing nectar once they had been 'done' so to speak. So love the bees, butterflies and birds myself. In fact we had a monarch in the garden last week. We so seem to get the odd one even in winter over here. Loving it that Cuddles and you get to spend so much time outdoors and reclining and enjoying the natural world is such a happy thing to do.

Sherre, so sorry about the mouth ulcer, hope you got it fixed up today. Such a waste of time sitting in those places (even if its for our own good) - Im happy it was only a couple of hours for the diabetes tests today.
The toms will be there tomorrow as long as the birdies havent had a feast. Have a good day out shopping. Tomorrow is also my shopping day. Nicola will be here around lunchtime.

Hugs to all Wispy

DUSTY, SO PLEASED YOU ARE FEELOMG BETTER TODAU. AS FOR APPOINTMENTS; MARY IS THINKING OF MOVING HER BED INTO THE HOSPITAL, LOL. SHE HAS TO RUN THE THREE OF US EVERYWHERE SO THE HOSPITAL IS HER SECOND HOME. YES, I DID KNOW ABOUT THE WASHING OF THE FEET. IT WAS CARRIED OUT BY A WOMAN MOSTLY AND WAS A SIGN OF RESPECT. THAT IS WHATI UNDERSTAND ALTHOUGH THERE MAY BE MROE TO IT THN THAT. I WILL HAVE TO GO AND REFRESH MY MEMORY, BUT THANKS FOR THE REMINDER. MUCH APPRECIATED. YOU ARE SAYING ABOUT THE BUTTERFLIES AND I DO NOT WANT THEM INTHE GARDEN. OH, I LOVE SEEING THEM, BUT SOME ARE REAL PESTS WHEN IT COPMES TO EATING THE BRASSICAS, AND ESPECIALLY THE CABBAGE WHITE, OF WHICH WE HAD A FEW IN THIS YEAR. FORTUNATELY, I DID NOT GROWN ANY THIS YEAR SO WASN'T AFFECTED, BUT ONE YEAR I LOST A WHOLE CROP TO THEM. NOT MY FAVOURITE I'M AFRAD. HAVING SAID THAT WE HAD 2 RED ADMIRALS ACTUALLY COME INSIDE THE CHURCH HALL. EVENTUALLY THEY MANAGED TO FIND THEIR WAY OUT AGAIN, WHICH WAS GOOD, BUT IT WAS REALLY LOVELY TO SEE THEM FLITTING AROUND THE PLACE..

LINDA, MUM AND I ARE STILL TALKING SO ALL IS NOT LOST YET. BETWEEEN TORNADOES AND HURRICANES IT SI A WONDER ANYONE WANTS TO LIVE DOWN THAT WAY. YET I UNDERSTAND THAT FLORIDA IN PARTICULAR IS WELL KNOWN AS A RETIREMENT STATE. ALSO INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT THE MIDWEST IS AS BAD IF NOT WORSE FOR TORNADOES. IT MUST BE A CONSTANT NIGHTMARE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE,A LTHOUGH HOPEFULLY THEY WILL HAVE SAFE ROOMS TO GO TO DURING SUCH STORMS. WOULD NOT LIKE TO PAY THE HOUSE INSURANCE PREMIUMS THOUGH. HOPE YOU HAVE A FREAT TIME WITH THE GRANDCHILDREN AND GET TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH THEM DURING YOUR STAY.

OK FOLKS, TIME TO HIT THE HAY. ANOTHER DAY OVER AND I AM ACTUALLY STARTING TO YAWN SO WILL NOT BE READING MUCH.

TAKE CARE AND I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS.

This morning has been busy but I am very tired. Too busy of a weekend. I guess we will be in Ohio for a couple of weeks. I just hope that when we return to the Tampa area another hurricane doesn't hit this year. LOL There are another several weeks until the Hurricane season is over. My friends say that the threat in our area of Florida right now are tornado threats, flooding and wind. But, the tornadoes are not normally as vicious as those in the midwestern part of the U.S. (including Ohio). I went to the store today to buy some toys for the grandchildren and we will all have a dinner today. I also bought a cake to have for dessert. Looking forward to seeing them.

Mac - it sounded like a nice church service. It is nice when many people get involved with the service and there is a time for sharing. I can empathize with you. It must be so difficult dealing with your mother. You want her to stay healthy but by not eating, it is not possible for her to stay in good health.

Dusty - glad that you have a nice day with great weather today. Sounds like you will be busy this week with medical appointments.

Corgimary - I know it was probably hard to see your daughter go but it sounds like she has a good support system with her friends. Hope she continues to do well in school. Enjoy your time with Lily,

Wispy, Sherry, Lynn, Josh, Starr,Oma, Ginny, Starr, Vicky, Sheila, Dee, Cerebullum, Monica hope you are having a good day!

A Good Monday to all of you…My World of Friends including Sherry, Wispy, Mac, Josh, Oma, Monica, Linda, Corgimary, Ginny, Starr, Vicky, Sheila, Dee, CERREBELLUM, Onicam, Lynn and everyone else I have missed,

Today’s weather is gorgeous. It is sunny & warm with a light breeze. Cuddles & I sat outside on the deck for an hour. I worked on making my list…yes Mac I HAVE to make lists for what I am doing today and throughout the week. Now I have another Dr appointment, another set of lab tests to be done and my c-pap specialist to see this week. Working around these appointments will be excursions to grocery store, the gym, the library, the computer shop plus some gardening and laundry to get on the clothesline…and somewhere in here we still need to pick fixtures, more tile, etc. for the bathroom.

Today, I did set up the sprinkler to water the area by the clothesline and it just reaches a few of my blueberry bushes. Cuddles enjoyed just sitting out there able to see all the wildlife that passes through our gardens! The butterflies flitted through the gardens and birds would fly through the water. This year we had an increase in the number of butterflies and hummingbirds in the gardens throughout Minnesota....and did you know that once a flower is pollinated it stops producing nectar? We have had mixed weather here…overcast & muggy or hot and dry so everything is turning brown and I am trying to play catch up in that area. We had the hottest July on record here in Minnesota.
My daughter lives in the Tampa, FL area and is staying with Cuddle’s sister while her neighbor’s have headed out to avoid hurricane Isaac.

As you see, I did spend some time outdoors resting and enjoying it instead of working outdoors.
Yes, thank you Mac! I do feel better. I shall feel a lot better once I know if the numbers on my labs are correct hence the 2nd visit to have labs done!

I am doing little things that need to be done this week: some potting up of herbs, calls to make, items to drop off, household cleaning, etc. So I am taking it fairly easy this week! emoticon
Note to Mac: the early Christians also would recline while eating and someone would wash their feet!
Note to Sherry: Don't want to get into trouble...is there a birthday forum where we can share birthdays so we can wish our team members a happy birthday on their special date?
Have a great day everyone. emoticon

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE.

ANOTHER WASHOUT WEATHER WISE TODAY. I THINK WE ARE GETTING THE TAIL END OF HURRICANE ISAAC, ALBEIT NOWHERE NEAR AS BAD AS FLORIDA AND LOUISIANA OF COURSE. YOU JUST HAVE TO FEEL FOR THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE IN THOSE STATES.

A RELAXED DAY TODAY AS I HAVE A REALLY BUSY WEEK AHEAD AND WILL NOT BE GETTING TOO MUCH RESPITE. W3E HAVE A FUNDRAISER COING UP AND I HAVE 3 DAYS OF BAKING AHEAD STARTING WEDNESDAY. I WILL BE OUT TOMORROW AS IT IS THE WEEKLY LUNCH CLUB; PLUS THEN THERE IS THE FUNDRAISER ITSELF ON SATURDAY. I HAVE ALSO NOT MANAGED TO GET INTO THE GARDEN TO DIG OVER THE STRAWBERRY PATCH AS THE GROUND IS SIMPLY SODDEN. THAT AHS TO BE DONE AS WELL THIS WEEK BEFORE THE PLANTS SUFFER. SO I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I HAD PLENTY OF REST BEFORE THE FRAY SO AS NOT T OVERDO IT TOO MUCH.

YESTERDAY WAS REALLY GOOD AT CHURCH AND IF ANYONE WANTS TO TRY THIS THEN IT IS WELL WORTHWHILE. BASICALLY WE ALL SAT AROUND THE TABLE WITH SOME FRUIT CAKE AND SOME TEA/COFFEE. EACH ONE OF US BROUGHT A FAVOURITE READING OR A STORY OR, IN MY CASE, A SING, AND WE SIMPLY WENT AROUND THE TALE AND DISCUSSED WHAT WE EACH GOT OUT OF WHAT WE HAD BROUGHT AND WHAT OTHERS COULD GET FROM IT. OU SECOND MINISTER WAS ABLE TO ATTEND AND SHE ACTUALLY TOOK NOTES DURING IT ALL. WE HAD SOME PRAYERS AS WELL AND A COUPLEIOF FAVOURITE HYMNS BUT IT WAS WEIRD IN A WAY. OUR MINISTER TOOK EHR NOTES AND THEN SAID THAT ALTHOUGH WE HAD ALL BROUGHT INDIVIDUAL THINGS, IT ACTUALLY ALL CAME TOGETHER AND SO IT TURNED OUT. WE GOT SO MUCH OUT OF THIS AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU TRY IT. FOR THOSE THAT DO ATTEND CHURCH REGULARLY TIS IS HOW IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IN EARLY CHRISTIANITY, WHEN PEOPLE WOULD GATHER ROUND THE TABLE AND EAT AND DRINK AND DISCUSS.

ENOUGH OF THAT THOUGH. IAM AFRAID THAT I UPSET MUM THIS AFTERNOON. YES, IT WAS OVER HER EATING BUT I THINKT HE STRESS GOT TO ME AND I LOST IT. I WILL APOLOGISE TO HER LATER OF COURSE, BUT I REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO TRY RIGHT NOW. I THINK I AM GOING TO HAVE TO LET HER GO WITHOUT AND LITERALLY GO HER OWN WAY FOR A TIME AND THEN WHEN SHE DOES NOT TAKE CARE OF HERSELF APPROACH THE DOCTOR ABOUT HER. THAT IS ABOUT THE ONLY OPTION I AHVE LEFT NOW. I AM SORRY TO BURDEN YOU WITH THIS BUT REALLY IT HAS JUST COMETO A HEAD. NOW I JUST NEED TO CALM DOWN.

DUSTY, I AM SO SORRY TO EHAR THAT OYU ARE NOT FEELING VERY WELL. PERHAPS Y9OU NEED TO TAKE SOME TIME OUT FOR YOURSELF. I KLNOW THERE IS STILLA LOT ON OYUR PLATE, BUT YOU SHOULD PERHAPS TRY AND MAKE SOME ME TIME AND RELAX A BIT. I DO HOPE THAT OYU FEEL A LOT BETTER TODAY.

SHERRY, YES, IT IS A BUG AND I CANNOT RESIST THE URGE. I HAD ONLY INTENDED TO GET THOSE FRUIT EXTRACTS BUT COULD NOT RESIST THE STRAWBERRY PLANTS AS THEY LOOKED SO HEALTHY. DESPITE THE RAIN WE ARE ABCK UP TO 17C TODAY SO IT IS NOT THAT COLD. IT AHS TURNED OUT THAT WE HAVE HAD ONE OF THE TOP 5 WETTEST SUMMERS ON RECORD. OH WELL, THERE IS ALWAYS NEXT YEAR TO LOOK FORWARD TO AND NOW IT IS COMING TO THE END OF THE SEASON IT WILL JUST BE TUDYING UP FOR THE WINTER. HOPEFULLY I CAN MANAGE TO GET THAT DONE IN BETWEEN RAINY DAYS. IT IS A GOPOD IDEA TO START NOW SO THAT YOU ARE NOT LEFT WITH IT ALL TO DO AT THE LAST MINUTE.

WISPY, I KNOW JUST WHAT OYU MEAN. ONCE YOU GET STARTED ON THOSE GAMES TIME STABNDS STILL AND YOU LOSE TRACK. BEFOREYOU KNOW IT OYU ARE LATE FOR EBD AND THUS THE ROUTINE IS UPSET. I HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM M,YSELF. AM CURRENTLY PLAYING ENCHANTED GARDEM,. A MATCH 3 GAME, AND I CANNOT GET PAST THIS ONE SCREEN, WHICH IS SO FRUSTRATING. AND THEN THERE IS YOUR TREE ROOM WHCIH IS COMING TO FRUITION. I HAVE A PICTURE IN MY MIND FROM YOUR POST AND IF OYU COULD GET SOMEONE TO TAKE A PICTURE IT WOULD BE REALLY GREAT TO SEE IT FOR OUSELVES.

OMA, HOPE THE BIG KIDS ENJOYED THE SHOW. HOW DO YOU AMUSE TWO YOUNG CHILDREN SO THAT THEY GO TO BED ON TIME? WHENEVER THE GRANDKIDS STAY OVER WITH US IT IS LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN LET OFF THE LEASH AND WANT TO STAY UP ETC.

MONICA, YOU HAVE TO SEEK MEDICAL HELP. IF THUINGS HAVE GOT TO THIS STAGE THEN YOU NEED TO CONSULT YOUR GP INT HE FIRST INSTANCE AND SEE WHAT HE HAS TO SAY AND WHAT HE RECOMMENDS. YOU ARE AT A VULNERABLE STAGE RIGHT NOW SO THE SOONER YOU DO THIS THE BETTER FRO YOUR LONG TERM HEALTH.

JOSH, KIDS CAN DO THAT. THEY HAVE THE ABILITY SOMETIMES JUST TO AMKE YOU SMILE, AND THAT IS PRICELESS. THEYA RE ALMOST A STRESS RELIEVER IN A WAY, AND IN ANY CASE, A DAY OUT WITHT HE FAMILY SHOULD ALWAYS BE TREASURED. HOPE YOUR FATHER ENJOYED HIS BIRTHDAY AND THAT YOU ALL GOT SOMETHING OUT OF IT.

LINDA, FOR ONCE I AM SIDING WITH YOUR CHILDREN. IT JUST MAKES SO MUCH SENSE. YOU HAVE A HURRICANE PLUS A POLITICAL CONVENTION ALL AT THE SAME TIME. DON'T KNOW WHICH IS WORSE, LOL. IT MAY BE AN EXPENSIVE TRIP BUT FOR NOW YOU ARE SAFE AND THAT IS THE MAIN THING.

CORGIMARY, AM EDITING AS I THINK WE WERTE POSTING AT THE SAME TIME. IT MUST BE QUITE SAD IN A WAY TO GET YOUR DAUGHTER OFF TO SCHOOL KNOWING THAT OYU WILL PROPBABLY NOT GET A CALL OUT SO WILL NOT BE GOING YOURSELF. ONCE WE GET INTO A HABIT THEN IT CAN TAKE A WHILE BEFORE WE SHAKE IT,A ND IF YOU LOVE YOUR JOB, AS I SUSPECT YOU DID, THEN IT IS DOUBLY HARD. AS FOR THOSE LETTUCE SEEDS; PUT A PLASTIC SHEET OR SOMETHING SIMILAR OVER THE TOP AND JUST LEAVE A GAP AT WITHER END FOR AIR FLOW. THIS WILL HELP TO KEEP THE SOIL WARM AND HOPEFULLY WILLG ERMINATE THE SEEDS QUICKLY. LETTUCE DOESN'T TAKE THAT LONG TO GRTOW SO YOU MIGHT JUST BE OKAY. IT CERTAINLY DOESN'T HURT TO GIVE IT A TRY. NOTHING VENTURED....

OK FOLKS, GOING TO MAKE PEACE WITH MUM AND THEN SORT SOME BOOKS AND STUFF OUT WHICH WE WANT TO GET RID OF SO THEY CAN GO ON THE BRIC-A-BRAC TABLE AT THE FUNDRAISER.

WILL SEE YOU ALL LATER ON. HAVE A GREAT MONDAY.

HELLLLO TEAM!
LOOKS LIKE EVERYONE IS BUSY WITH ALL KINDS OF THINGS. I SENT MY DAUGHTER BACK TO SCHOOL YESTERDAY. I WON'T BE SEEING MUCH OF HER UNTIL THANKSGIVING NOW. HER SCHOOL IS LESS THAN AN HOUR AWAY, BUT SHE WILL BE BUSY WITH CLASSES AND SHE WILL ALSO HAVE TO WORK IN THE EVENINGS. I DID NOT GO WITH HER AS HER NEW DORM ROOM IS ON THE 4TH FLOOR AND THERE IS NO ELEVATOR. SHE TOOK HER BOYFRIEND AND A FRIEND FROM HIGH SCHOOL TO HELP HER SCHLEPP HER STUFF UP ALL THOSE STAIRS.
THIS MORNING I WALKED LILY AFTER 8 O CLOCK HAD PASSED AND I WAS NOT CALLED TO SUB. I REALLY DON'T EXPECT TO BE CALLED THIS WEEK AS MOST TEACHERS MAKE EVERY EFFORT NOT TO BE ABSENT THE FIRST FULL WEEK OF SCHOOL AND THERE ARE NO TEACHER TRAININGS SCHEDULED THAT WOULD PULL THEM OUT OF THE CLASS ROOM - BUT IT IS BEST TO BE PREPARED IN CASE SOMEBODY GETS SICK. I DO NOT MIND BEING UP EARLY - I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A MORNING PERSON. I JUST MAKE SURE THAT I HAVE CLOTHES READY AND SOMETHING THAT I CAN GRAB QUICKLY TO TAKE FOR LUNCH IN CASE I AM CALLED. THE SCHOOL IS ONLY ABOUT 4 BLOCKS FROM MY HOUSE SO I CAN BE THERE VERY SOON AFTER I AM CALLED.
AFTER OUR WALK, I BRUSHED LILY AND DID A LITTLE CLEAN UP IN MY SMALL GARDEN. I PLANTED A NEW ROW OF LETTUCE SEEDS - THAT IS MY EXPERIMENT. I DO NOT KNOW IF THEY WILL GROW BEFORE IT GETS TOO COLD, BUT I HAD EXTRA SEEDS SO THERE WAS NO HARM IN TRYING! AFTER I LOG MY WALK ON SPARK IT WILL BE TIME TO WRITE UNTIL LUNCH.

CERREBELLUM- GLAD YOU HAVE FRIENDS THAT CAN HELP SOMETIMES. I HAD SOME PEOPLE FROM MY CHURCH THAT CAME TO HELP WITH SOME HEAVY YARD WORK LAST WEEK. THEY PROMISED TO COME BACK WHEN THE LEAVES FALL OFF THE BIG TREE IN MY BACK YARD TO HELP ME RAKE.

WISPY - TREE HOUSE BEDROOM SOUNDS FUN! ENJOY IT!

LINDA - GLAD YOU ARE SAFE FROM STORM. MY BROTHER LIVES IN GAINESVILLE AND THEY WERE GETTING READY FOR THE HEAVY RAINS.

MAC - SORRY YOUR FAIR WAS RAINED OUT - BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ENJOYED THE GARDEN CENTER.

LATER ALL! CORGIMARY

At the urging of our children, we did fly to Ohio and away from Florida....Florida is having some problems with rain, flooding and tornadoes but it looks as though Louisiana may get the brunt of the storm.

Happy we are in Ohio - although an expensive trip. Have to change my physical which was scheduled for Friday to a later date. Oh well.

Hope you all are doing well.

Hi gang, gosh so few posts since yesterday i can hardly believe it. I did finish the final level of the game and got the genie out of the lamp. I am now ruler of all of Persia. Woo hoo.

Other DS, not the eating one but the gardening one :o) was over yestereday and we had such a great time. While he was here we transormed my bedroom into a round tree house. Cant tell you how much I am loving it. He cut down lots of branches and now I have them in all four corners so the room appears to be round. The bed is across one corner with a big branch behind and the facing corner has the TV across it with drawers under and cabinets on either side. I fell asleep and woke up with the fronds above me today. So exactly what I wanted. It is just like a little fairy cottage in the treetops. Of course all the leaves will drop and then I will see about either something artificial perhaps for leaves or else just bare with fairy lights. With branches round the TV it makes the picture look totally 3 dimensional, as if its a window. Amazing how the branches just round the edges and leaves slightly over the edge of the screen make it look so real and as I have floor to ceiling windows the indoor branches and outdoor trees all just blend into one setting. The effect is better than I had ever imagined AND I feel like I am living in a tree house. Who knew such a simple thing could be so satisfying.

Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick post tonight. Got back to exercise yesterday but know I didn't hit my goal for the week. Oh well, life just gets busy sometimes. That was a very handy suggestion about things to do at work Mac. Thanks for the reminder. Lynn, I hope you and the boys have everything set up the way you want them. I'm sure they don't mind. We boys do tend to complain but we know when we are well looked after and I'm sure you treat them well. Had a great but very long day today. My father's birthday was Friday so I agreed to go to a small lakeside town called Goderich for a beach day with my family to celebrate. The little kids (my nephews) sure do make you put your own troubles aside for a while. From the look of the board today it looks like everyone's been busy for the most part. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I am not sure what is going on, but i am not up for anyhing not food, fluid, getting needed work done, soda, candies or anything. This does happen once in a while which is why the dr. said that i need to watch the depression. I am tired and want to lay down all day. This is a bad sign when I am addicted to candies and soda as well as have tendencies of overeating. I have not ate or anything except attempt to reach out and put clothes on.

I am way out of control with my eating again. I have been struggling with things and binged at least twice this evening. I am not sure what to do in order to make it so I do not do this when I get big time stressed.

Hey there guys, well pooped I may have been last night, but gosh darn it, decided to play a little game - Cradle of Persia which I havent played in a long while - by the by Mac, got the one you mentioned the other day and really enjoying it too. Anyhoo, just thought Id play for a wee while before going to sleep..... and the next thing I knew it was 6.30 this morning. I cant believe it. I so love those games - I thought it might have been about midnight. However I am on the last round - its so much quicker when you have played them a few times. The last one however is a real doozy and I only have about 10 more lives. So hope I get it today. ;o)
Its like a really good book, you cant wait to get to the end, but also want it to go on for ever. Gotta get some sleep.....

Big hugs, have a good weekend everyone.

OK, just checking in...dh is not feeling well, Cuddles & I are tired...we FINALLY decided on who will do the tile, tape the walls, install the fan and sink & toilet, etc. He can't start until Oct 1st...in a way that is a relief as I have to get going on a number of doctor appointments for me...Had to take care of dh appointments first and now I have to get mine in for years end! So now I can rest some..
work on some outdoor pruning for Winter of dead branches, clean up veggie garden, do some genealogy, and exercising and documenting my meals, etc... So now I won't have to think about it for some time...

HELLO EVERYONE.

I AM LATE THIS EVENING AND THIS WILL BE MY ONE AND ONLY POST TODAY, AND AS PER USUAL I WILL NOT EB IN TOMORROW.

JUST TO SAY THAT THERE WIKLL NOT BE ANOTHER BLOG. UNFORTUNTTELY, DUE TO THE WEATHER, THE COUNTY SHOW WAS CANCELLED. ALTHOUGH WE STILL WENT TO MOFFAT i DO FEEL FOR THE FARMERS WHO HAD GOT THEIR ANIMALS READY FOR COMPETITION ONLY TO HAVE PUT IN THE HARD WORK FOR NOTHING. tHE COPMPETITIONS THAT COULD BE BROUGHT INSIDE WERE TAKEN TO THE TOWN HALL, SO THAT THE KAM, BREAD AND CAKE MAKING, AND THE KNITWEAR AND CRAFTS COMPETITIONS WERE STILL ABLE TO GO AHEAD, SO THAT IS COME CONSOLIATION FRO THE LADIES WHO HAD PUT TIME AND EFFORT INTO THEM.

I DID NOT GO INSIDE TO HAVE A LOOK AS ROOM WAS AT A PREMIUM. I;M AFRAID I HAD TO SUFFER THE SMALL GARDEN CENTRE NEXT DOOR FOR AN HOUR. I BET YOU REALLY FEEL GOT ME DON'T YOU? LOL. ACTUALLY I WAS REALLY GOOD AND DID NOT GGO MAD. I PICKED UP A FEW TIPS ABOUT STRAWBERRY GROWING AND BOUGHT 5 NEW PLANTS TO REPLACE THE OLDER ONES INT HE PATCH. I ALSO BOUGHT SOME LEMON AND ORANGE EXTRACTS FRO COOKING AS I HAVE RUN OUT OF THEM AND THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE IN SCOTLAND THAT I AHVE SEEN THESE PARTICULAR EXTRACTRS. I CAN GET THEM VIA THE INTERNET BUT WEN WE GO DOWN AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR I JUST BUY A COUPLE AT A TIME AND THAT DOES ME. THE ONES I BUY ARE A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE ONES IN THE SUPERMARKET, BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR AND THEY ARE FAR SUPERIOR.

APART FROM THE ODD SHOWER, THE DAY WAS STILL NICE AND IT WAS GOOD TO DO STUFF WITHOUT MUM. I AM NOT BEING NASTY HERE BUT WE DID NOT HAVE TO THINK OF WHAT MUM WOULD WANT OR HOW SHE WOULD REACT TO CVERTAIN THNGS. WE COULD PRETTY MUCH DO AS WE PLEASED.

THE OTHER REASON I AM LATE IS BECAUSE AS SOON AS I GOT BACK I HAD TO GET MUM HER SUPPER AND THEN PUT THE LAUNDRY ON. BECAUSE WE ATE OUT AGAIN AT LUNCHTIME I JUST WANTED A SANDWICH, SO THAT WAS DONE WHIST I DID MUM HERS. AND SHOCK, HORROR! I NEARLY FAINTED WHEN MUM TOLD ME WHAT SHE ATE FOR LUNCH. SHE ACTUALLY GOT EHRSELF SOME PILCHARDS WITH A LOAD OF SALAD AND SOME BREAD AND BUTTER. MIND YOU, SHE DID PROMUISE ME SHE WOULD HAVE SOMETHING TO EAT BUT WOULD NOT TELL ME WHAT BEFORE THIS EVENING.

OBVIOUSLY, I HAVE NOT TAKEN ANY MORE PHOTOS OF THE PLACE. YOU HAVE SEEN THEM ALL ON A PREVIOUS BLOG AND IT WOULD JUST BE REPETITION. SUFFICE TO SAY MOFFAT HAS BECOME OUR MUST VISIT PLACE OF CHOICE AND WE CANNOT EVER GET TIRED OF GOING THERE. OH, AND I THINK MARY MUST HAVE CLEARED OUT THE SWEET SHOP. THE GRANDKIDS WILL BE SO HAPPY.

WE ACTUALLY LEFT JUST IN TIME AS WE HAD ONLY JUST CLEARED THE TOWN AND THE HEAVENS REALLY OPENED AND WE HAD RAIN ALLT HE WAY BACK. APPARENTLY IT AHS BEEN RAINING HERE AS WELL SINCE MID AFTERNOON AND HAS LITERALLY ONLY JUST STOPPED, ALTHOUGH WE ARE EXPECTING MORE OVERNIGHT. TOMORROW IS FORECASTED DRY BUT TYPICAL OF A BANK HOLIDAY, MONDAY IS FORECAST TO BE A WASHOUT. HPEULLY THE RAINS WILL ABATE BY TEISDAY AND COME WEDNESDAY I WILL BE ABLE TO GO AND DIG THE STRAWBERRY PATCH AND PLANT THE NEW ONES. GOT A TIP FOR YOU AS WELL FORM THE GARDEN CENTRE. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU SUFFER WITH FLIES DURING THE HOT WEATHER BUT TO STOP THEM FLYING AROUND YOUR HOUSE, PICK SOME FRESH MINT AND PLACE IT IN EITHER A POT POURRI OR, IF YOU PICK THE STALKS AS WELL, PLACE IN SOME WATER. THIS IS ONE OF NATURE'S DEFENCES AS APPARENTLY FLIES DO NOT LIKE MINT.

MONICA, I KEEP SAYING TO YOU THAT WHILST YUO ARE TRYING TO FOCUS ON ALL THIS NEW STUFF AT SCHOOL YOU WILL HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE LIFESTYLE PROGRAMME YU ARE TRYING TO IMPLEMEMNNT. YOU ARE UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS TO FO BOTH AND YOU NEED TO EITHER FIND A HAPPY MEDIUM OR FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CONSIDER THE PRIORITY. AS I SUGGESTED, SCHOOL IS THE PRIORITY RIGHT NOW. IT WILL NOT LAST FOEVER AND ONCE YOU AHVE FINISHED YOU CAN THEN FOCUS PURELY ON YOUR DIET. THIS WOULD PROBABLY BE THE BEST WAY FORWARD FOR YOU. THIOS DOES NOT MMEAN TO SAY THAT YOU SHOULD FORGET HEALTHY EATING ETC. THAT IS STILL IMPORTANT, OF COURSE, BUT FOCUS LESS ON IT FOR NOW AND SEE HOW YUO GET ON. YOU CAN ACTUALLY TRY TOO HARD YOU KNOW AND WHEN YOU DO THINGS TEND NOT TO GO HOW YOU WOULD WANT THEM TO.

SHERRY, WE ARE DOWN TO 13C TODAY AND IT IS SCHEDULED TO GO DOWN AS LOW AS 3C OVERNIGHT, WHICH IS THE COLDEST IT HAS BEEN FOR SOME TIME NOW. BUT THEN I GUESS WE SHOULD EXPECT THE TEMPS TO START FALLING AS AUTUMN, OR THE FALL AS YOU CALL IT, IS NEARLY UPON US. MY FAVOURITE SEASON OF THE YEAR FOR COLOUR AMONGST THE LEAVES. GOOD JOB I SOENT YESTERDAY IN THE KITCHEN AS I HAVEN'T A CHANCE NOW AND THE LADIES DO LOVE THEIR BIT OF CAKE, LOL. HOPE YOU CAN GET THE PC SORTED OUT. IT IS ANNOYING WHEN YOU KNOW THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG BUT CANNOT GET IT PINPOINTED. I CAN EMPATHISE WITH YOUA BOUT NOT HAVING TO WATER THE GARDEN. I HAVE ONLY HAD THE HOSE OUT A HALF DOZEN TIMES TOTAL THIS YEAR WITH ALL THE RAIN WE HAVE HAD. NOW I NEED A DRY DAY TO HARVEST THE POTATOES, CARROTS AND BEETS ABD TO FINISH OFF ALL THAT WEEDING.

CEREBELLUM, I WILL PRAY THAT SOME SILUTION PRESENTS ITSELF FOR YOU AND YOU GET ALL THAT YOU RIGHTLY DESERVE. I OFTEN THINK THAT BECAUSE IT DOES NOT AFFECT THEM, THE PEOPLE IN SUITS FO NOT CARE ENOUGH SO WILL ALLOW BUREAUCRACY TO TAKE OVER INSTEAD OF EFFICIENCY. IT IS SO OFTENT HE CASE WHEREVER YOUI LIOVE AND WHATEVER COUNTRY, ALTHOUGH SLOWLY THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER HERE. I JUST HOPE YU HEAR SOON SO THAT YOU CAN GET THE APPEAL GOING.

DUSTY, YOU NEED TO SLOW DOWN AND TAKE STOCK. IN THE EHAT OF THE DAY WHERE YOU ARE A WALK CAN BE SO DRAINING, AND OYU DON'T HAVE TO DO IT EVERY DAY. NOT THAT I WOULD SUGGEST YOU STIO IF IT GETS YOU MOVING AND GIVES YOU PLEASURE, BUT THINK ABOUT EVEN JUST CUTTING THE DISTANCES DOWN. YOU WILL GET JUST AS MUCH BENEFIT IN THE LONG RUN, AND IT IS NOT AS IF YOU ARE ON A STRICT TIMETABLE. JUST TAKE CARE PLEASE AND DO NOT PUSH YOURSELF SO MUCH.

OMA, AS EVER I WILL LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THE BLOG AND ESPECIALLY THE PICTURES. YOU ARE JUST A NATURAL WITH THE CAMERA.

LINDA, SOOUNDS AS IF YUR DAY IS WELL PLANEED AND YOU ARE GOING TO BE PRETTY BUSY. HAVE A GOOD ONE.

LYNN, DON'T YOU JUST LOVE IT WHEN YOU ARE THE SUPERVISOR AND YOUR 'STAFF' GET TO DO ALL THE WORK? LOL. WOULD LOVE TO BE IN THAT POSITION. ANY CHANCE OF SOME UPDATED PICS PLEASE ONCE IT IS ALL DONE?

O FOLKS, IT IS NOW 8.30PM SO I AM GOING TO CALL IT A DAY AND REST UP. AN UNUSUAL DAY TOMORROW AT CHURCH. OUR MINISTER IS AT A FAMILY WEDDING TOMORROW SO OUR SECOND MIONISTER, WHO IS NORMALLY ALL OVER THE PLACE EHRSELF, IS ABLE TO SREP IN. HOWEVER, WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO IS TO EACH GO WITH A FAVOURITE BIBLE READING OR A HYMN, OR IN MY CASE A FOLK SONG, AND WE WILL GO THROUGH IT AND DISCUSS WHAT IT MEANS RO SU. THERE WILL BE PRAYES OF COURSE BUT NOT A SERVICE AS YOU WOULD RECOGNISE IT AS WE ARE LAL GOING TO SIT AROUND THE TABLE INA CIRCLE. I AM RATHER LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. THE NLY THING IS THAT MY SIGHT READING WILL BE PUT TO THE TEST AS I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF ANY HYMNS THAT WILL BE CHOSEN SO WILL HAVE TO PLAY AS THEY COME. MAKES M,Y LIFE INTERESTING AS WELL AND KEEPS THE MIND SHARP.

SOI WILL WISH YOU ALL A LOVELY SATURDAY AND HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY AS WELL.

SEE YOU ALL ON MONDAY.
