Hi!!
Marlene it was the same when I was a kid. Here schools aren't out until after Memorial Day and start again mid August which is before Labor Day. Before long they won't have a summer vacation at all. So sad!

Happy Birthday Shelley!!

Tomorrow is my birthday. I really feel like rotisserie style chicken. Was thinking of going to Wegman's tomorrow to get 2 (to be able to feed family), some frozen fries, salad fixin's, cake and ice cream...and a bottle of "youth" (hair dye!) I was actually hoping just to put off coloring my hair until just before returning to work (staff reports on Sept. 1, classes start the 2nd), but the grey is starting to get to me.

I have not been here for sometime. Not sure why, I just forget to sign in and lose my daily streak on the start wheel.
Nothing going on lately. I think I probably told you about New great granddaughter Stella June. She was born July 8th. I have another great grandchild due any day to my granddaughter in England. She does not want to know girl or boy until he/she gets here. I am hoping for a girl as she already has two boys. My daughter and hubby are flying out today to be there when the baby comes.
There are three schools around my area. The one in my county starts Sept. 2nd. When I was a kid we never started until the day after labor day. One across the border in Kansas starts Aug.20 and the one in the next county where my great grandson will go starts Aug 12th. That is just a couple weeks from now.

Hi Friends!!
Marlene is smells good here too! DD is fixing DBros' birthday lasagna dinner!! Yummy!!! I will do the dishes afterwards! ;-)
Love your puzzle! So pretty!

Shelley so glad your knees are doing so well. When does school start? I can't believe school supplies are out already?!! Our tax free weekend is in a couple weeks. That's when I stock up on computer paper and things like that! ;-)

Hope you both have a great weekend!

It smells so good in the house, I have a roast in the crock pot. I don't know if anyone will come for lunch or not but I will have the meat ready in case they do and if they don't I can make sandwiches or stew later.

It is supposed to be over 100 today, it rained an eighth of an inch yesterday so most of the yard got watered. I need to double check the plants on the deck, they seem to dry out quickly when it gets this hot.

Lots of things to do, I am behind on filing paid invoices, bringing up check book and etc. I have a tendency to let them go. I also have an on going picture puzzle, still have a finished one that I have not put away. Here it is......

Got up this morning and did my knee workout, though I forgot to get on the bike. Not that I can pedal all the way around yet - just good to rock the pedals and try to get the range of motion. When therapist came yesterday I added 3 more degrees to my bend!

We have a baby of sorts in the house - a puppy. NOT MY CHOICE. DSIL got it for the middle girl for when they move out. Of course she made all kinds of promises to take care of it, but more often than not there is a prevailing odor of puppy poops. I hope he moves out SOON.

Sorry I have been gone off and on taking care of new mom and babies. Mainly 1 year old Henry. I have gotten behind at home so this morning I have been out watering flowers and bushes. The misquitos are really hungry.

Did two sets of my knee exercises so far today, early in the morning and then after lunch. Then after a break I did a 15 minute walk with the walker back and forth on my block, with a couple of the grands accompanying me. This Tuesday it will be 2 weeks since surgery.

Stella June was born July 8th 7 lb 12 oz I took Henry home to his house and stayed with him. I came home yesterday after grandson got chores done checking cattle and etc. Then he stayed with his wife to help her. Her Mother came this afternoon to stay with her for a few days. Not sure if and when I will go down again. Probably just for the day time and then come home.
emoticon

Granddaughter, her DH and son Andrew are here for a couple days. They came down with my daughter and we went down to see the baby. Daughter is having a lunch tonight for those that want to come and visit with my granddaughter. They will leave early in the morning to go to his grandparents before going to Wichita tomorrow evening to catch the plane back to Orlando. Andrew is stay a few weeks, he will be going to third session of church camp and then my daughter and DH will take off for England as another baby is due the last of this month. Hoping it does not come until daughter can be there. Andrew will fly with them part way and then he will change planes and fly on home to Orlando, Florida.

I am just too busy, not supposed to be this busy at my age. Today I will be driving 50 miles to wait to welcome new great Granddaughter. She is to be born around 10.(C-Section) My family is growing by leaps and bounds. Another great due the last of this month or first part of next. That will make 15 step greats and greats.
I will take my lap top to my grandson's and watch the other children until someone comes to relieve me or mom gets home.

Sure hope my grandson's driveway is not too muddy. I don't drive my newer car in the country but will have to I guess to take Henry home or I could bring him home with me and get my 4x4 explorer. Time will tell.

Getting a bunch of stuff done...Started with pre-surgery knee exercises, then cleaned my room. Loaded the kiln with the animals I finally finished painting, and then with oldest bonus granddaughter showed her how to clean greenware.

The sun is shining here, too. very warm. The electric company changes my thermostat for my my ac up to 81 degrees. It is called smart hours, but not very smart to me. My house was so warm so now I have a fan going The price of electricity really jumps up in the hours from 3pm to 6pm. So I try not to move too much, probably warmer in the shade outside with a breeze??

Phog will be 6 in November, younger brother Henry was 1 in May and now Stella is due in just two weeks. Shower for her Sunday afternoon because she needs girl clothes. Probably just family.

Wow Marlene! I remember when that little 5 yr old was born! I didn't realize we had chatted together that amount of time! A little girl this time, how wonderful! My kids don't want to know gender either. But will let us come to the sonogram so we can find out. I didn't know how that would work out but last time it was good. We will be thrilled either way!

I have a great granddaughter due in 2 weeks, I need to pack a light suitcase in case I have to take off in the middle of the night to take care of the two older ones that are 5 and 1. Then another great grandbaby in August, they don't want to know what it is until it gets here.

I guess some days are busier than others!

Have today and tomorrow remaining with students, then Thursday we go to school to close out. Then Friday I go to my regular doctor - my last visit with her before she retires! emoticon emoticon Now I'll have to get used to another doctor! Then in the afternoon I drop DD off at an appointment before going to get a mammogram, fun fun.

I checked here several times but no one had been here and now I see you have so a little message from me.

Tomorrow a family is using the community building so I walked up there this morning. There was not much to do at the community building, we ask people to leave it like they found it but just had to check. I plugged in the Bunn coffee pot and ran a couple of pots of fresh water through it. It will be ready if anyone wants to use it tomorrow. The bathrooms needed a little attention. It has been awhile since used so needed the stools brushed out with pinesol. Then I walked back home. My second load of laundry was dry and now lying on my bed to be hung up or folded. I washed a load last evening just as I was going to bed and about 2 this morning I got up and tossed it in the dryer. The other load I did early this morning. Our electricity is higher in the afternoon so I try not to use the dryer, dish washer, oven and low AC. It is a pain but it saves money.

The sun is shining and already warm, supposed to be in the upper 90s but it has been most of the days lately.

It's been humid with occasional showers in these parts - my DD Abi hasn't had a chance to mow the lawn so of course the rains are making it grow faster!
I'm taking off from school tomorrow for appointments. No pay, having used all my sick/personal days.

Oh, I don't worry about it, I am home most of the time and the days get away from me. I put the trash out a day early but brought it back in. Yesterday was trash day so I put it back out and when I went for a walk this morning it was still out there as well as all the neighbors. I left while I was typing this and the truck just now came by 4 in the afternoon. Wonder what happened to them yesterday? Maybe they had their day confused, too????? emoticon

Marlene, I'm with Daddy's girl - we all get disoriented now and then. This happens to me especially if I take a nap - especially in the winter when I wake up to darkness and wonder what day I'm on.

School in my district is over the 24th for the kids, 25th for staff. So that frees me for my 2 appts. on the 26th - boob-smashing (mammogram) and pre-surgery doctor visit.

My knee has been complaining even more lately, so I'm gonna teach it a lesson! Soon it'll join the hip waiting for me in heaven!

Marlene I wouldn't worry about it. We all confuse the days of the week, every once in awhile?

My DS and his family move in on Saturday. I am going to enjoy them being here. In the process I am going through stuff that needs to be sorted too. ;-)

Shelley hope you are doing well. Are your schools out for the summer yet? Today is the last day for the kids here.

I may not see you for awhile, I called my daughter and told her I needed to go to the funny farm. I got up this morning thinking it was Wednesday the day for my appointment. I went to the mailbox to get the local paper and it was not there. I called the post office and said what happened to the paper? She said it does not come out until tomorrow, today is Tuesday. So I changed back to my jeans and stayed home. Yep, I have definitely lost it, maybe a Senior moment?? Probably the lady at the post office thought I was crazy, too.

I had a relaxing long weekend - stayed home, except for taking my DD to 2 appointments on Fri. I still have a cough, so I didn't go to church.
Next Tues. is my oldest granddaughter's 13th birthday and I plan to take just her out to dinner. I gave her some options and she opted for a diner - step up from fast food. So glad this is a pay week, and I'll get a full paycheck. I have some overdue bills!

I did not get here yesterday. I had great grands last night 9 and 12 yrs old. I took them to the eye Dr. this afternoon and then took them home. They live 25 miles from me. Mom works as an EMT so good old grand ma gets the running. I really don't mind. I stopped to get gas and some groceries and DD said she had walked to town to give blood at blood mobile. I told her I would come and get her and drive her home. Well, she was a walk in without an appointment so she got put to the last. We talked for awhile and then I sat in my vehicle to take her home probably 7 or 8 blocks. I then hurried home because my son was coming by to give me a bill that was sent to him that should have been sent to me. I was to tired too go to church and sitting here I keep nodding off. So off to bed I go Washing machine is going, dish washer will run in the morning. Terminex is supposed to be here between 8am and 10am so staying home tomorrow. Last time they never showed.

It has a busy day here today. There was a reunion at the community building today so I went at 8:30 this morning to unlock the building. While there I checked the ice machine and it was off, so I turned it on to make more ice. I got the cookies out of the freezer to thaw for tomorrow, plugged in the coffee pot and then came home to get ready for church. I went with a neighbor because they were taking a pickup and we had about three inches of rain yesterday. The road was only muddy for about a quarter of a mile. Back home and changed my clothes and I was invited to have lunch with the reunion. After that I came home, loaded flowers in my 4x4 and went back to the cemetery behind the church building. My DH is buried there and also many of his family. I came back by another cemetery where my sister and her husband are buried and decorated there. Finally home, I decided to take a nap. The phone rang and woke me up, a lady wanting a donation to breast cancer. I probably was not too nice to her. I am a little skeptical about them calling on the phone although she took it for granted that I would donate. I told her that I had not said I would. So she goodbye. Now it is raining again and I will stay home from church this evening. My yard is so wet. I am afraid it is going to drown my new rose bushes.

Sounds like we are all having rains and storms!! Marlene glad you got to enjoy the picnic. Don't think we are going to get to swim this weekend. The weather has been too cool and with the rain water, the pool will just be too cold. My feet cramp and I just can't swim in cold water like I used to be able.

Hope Everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!

Marlene, that sure sounds like "SCATTERED showers"!

Temps here have been up and down. Monday it got to around 90, and so humid - yesterday it was more pleasant, and today it's cool. It sure is easier to sleep when it's cooler! I try not to complain about the heat because Pucallpa is 80-90 degrees regularly. I can just sit 'n' simmer! But these drastic fluctuations confuse our bodies!

Saturday morning it was raining here, I was invited to a picnic in the park. My friend was to be there that is full of cancer. I talked to my friend's daughter and she said no rain there so I started out. It rained light rain on me most of the way but when I got to the town it was not raining. I went to Walmart to get some food to take to the picnic, set my GPS and started out. I got to the Meadow Lake Golf Course and supposed that was where I was supposed to be. I drove all around probably places that I should not have driven and could not find the picnic. I finally drove out and went further down the street and there was the Park. I finally found the "reunion" that was my friend's family. I did not realize it was a reunion. A neighbor that lives a half block from me was there. Her husband is a brother to my friend. The picnic was under a shelter and not raining. I had a nice visit and lots of food. After lunch I said I had better head home as there are storms forecast. I ran in to one heavy shower but I drove right out of it. As I headed north towards my home the clouds looked really black and frightening. I called my daughter but she said it was not raining. But soon I was driving in a heavy downpour and drove in it until I got home. Ditches were full and my yard was underwater. Thankful that I have a garage and did not have to walk in the rain after it stopped. I did have to walk in water running across my stepping stones. It stopped and the sun came out for a little bit and then later in the evening it came again and flooded my yard again. No complaints as no tornadoes close to me and we really need the rain.

I did have a pretty good night's rest. I always dream a lot, not sure why.

It is cloudy this morning but supposed to clear out and come back tonight. The weather man or lady change the forecast almost daily, so never know what to expect. Hoping for some sunshine.

My knee had bothered me so much Monday afternoon that I didn't pedal yesterday, but I got back on and did 10 minutes this morning.

It is hard to lose friends and relations, but such is the circle of life. It's good to have YOUNGER friends and relations to "last" until WE leave.

Hope you both had a wonderful Mother's Day! I had a wonderful time with my family too.

Shelley congrats on the bike time! Congrats!!

Marlene so sorry you lost another friend. That has to be hard! Sorry it means you won't see friends much anymore either. Sad when they move away.

We have had quite a bit of rain and flash flood warnings. Hard to believe we could see creeks over their banks! That hasn't been seen in a good long time. Thankfully we have been safe!! Hope you both are too as they storms seem to cover your area too!!

Today is a funeral of a dear older friend.She would have been 95 this fall. Her family is having a catered lunch at 11, the funeral is at 1 pm, then after the cemetery they will come back to the church building for snacks and visiting. The lady was a resident until lately when her girls put her in a rest home close to them. They both live in Western Kansas. So another chapter of friends closes as I doubt if they will come back much. They are really close to my daughter because of the care my daughter and her husband gave the elderly lady when she lived in her own home.

Hope you had a great Mother's Day. I did.

Did 20 on the bike again today. I actually wanted to do 30, but the left knee - and hip (not my NEW hip) were starting to hurt, so I stopped at 20. Still, I am so glad to be able to do it!

Death of DDil's Grandfather so we have been out of town. Then we had DS's graduation for his Master's Degree also 4 hrs north of us. We are home and trying to rest up. It has been a very busy week indeed!

Glad you both are doing well.

I eat a lot of leftovers at home. My daughter cooks a lot, since there are 5 kids and 3 adults, but she could stand to cut back a little!
Being at work does indeed curb my eating. When I got home yesterday I had a nice big salad after we'd gone shopping.

I have been too busy to be on here but here I am. I even lost my daily count so had to start over.

We had a wonderful Gospel Meeting and the basket dinner at my house was a big success with lots of food in a great variety. Of course I ate too much and now I am eating leftovers.

The car show was a big success, we ran out of food so we closed the concession early. Twice as many people this year than last year. We will have to plan bigger for next year and then we will probably have left overs like we did last year.
I was so tired but think I have finally got rested up. We have a gospel meeting this week and then pot luck Sunday at my house. Another busy week.

Marlene glad to hear you plan to drive. LOL

Shelley glad you got some relief.

My Sweet Sheltie died this week. She died on her 17th birthday. She will be missed but glad she isn't suffering anymore. DS is coming and bringing his German Shepherd for me to keep for a couple weeks. That will help my puppy feel better!

I was up at six and now have 100 cookies baked for the concession on Saturday for the car show. A lady donated the cookies that she had in her freezer. 9 boxes and 3 tubs. I only baked two and half boxes. They are already made into cookies so really easy to put in the oven and take out. Another lady and I will bag them later this week in 2 or 3 a baggie. We will have 50 bags of two and may be enough but if now we can bake some more. Now the frozen cookie dough is in my freezer. Dangerous? I hope I remember they belong to the city. We are having an open house memorial day in our new community building, so will probably have cookies there, too.
I have six cushions made for church benches, I made 7 a couple weeks ago. The church bench is only 12 inches deep and the cushions we bought are 16x16. They are now perfect but will look nice. The benches are hard and very uncomfortable.
I need to run to the grocery this morning and then home to fix lunch for my son.

Well said, Marlene!
Glad you've been kept safe in the midst of storms.
I've woken up a bit dizzy these past two days - ear congestion. Prayer and Sudafed brought relief. I was able to walk to CVS, and later did my 3 video seated routines.

Marlene you are right we don't rest and rest in prayer often enough. The Lord has us in the Hallow of His Hand. We try to fix our problems instead of depending on the Lord to show Himself strong on our behalf.

Getting more done around here. Lots of things to do but am glad to see progress.

Shelley glad you girls had some time out by yourselves!

Permission to Rest
Mark 1:32–35

Additional Scripture Readings: Psalm 46:10; Zechariah 2:13

Many of us tend to believe that the answer to our problems is to work harder, push further and achieve more. When was the last time we gave ourselves permission to rest?

Jesus shows us the reality of how to balance hard work and intense rest. In Mark 1:32–34, after Jesus had healed Peter’s mother-in-law and had driven out an evil spirit from a man in the synagogue, he met all the people of the town, healing many and driving out demons. These “extra” events probably took him the better part of the night. No one could accuse Jesus of kicking back on the job.

But look at the other side of the story. The very next morning Jesus got up early and went away to pray, to be alone and away from the demands of the ministry.

And what about us? We all need rest. We need to occasionally sit down with a cup of tea and ignore the chaos around us. We need to hand over the little ones to our husbands and go for a walk. Don’t believe the lie that overwork works. Believe Jesus.

Storms rolled in and we were in a tornado watch. I had things to take to the shelter by the back door. but never had to go. DGS called and said we would try for a different time for me to babysit.. There was a small tornado probably 5 miles south of here and a little east. It turned and went east and away from me. Pretty stressful for awhile.
DS and three of his grand kids were here for dinner. Then they went to see Phog, he is DS's grand kid, too. I still have not gotten the kitchen cleaned. But I did run the dishwasher, just a few things that did not fit in the dishwasher so maybe tomorrow I will hand wash what is left or start another load in the dishwasher.
I am tired, time, only a little after eight but I am seriously thinking of going to bed. Still thunder rumbling in the distance. Lots of rain and some hail but no wind. We really need the rain.

I have not been posting here for several days. Seems I am busy. I am early this morning as I am going to go take care of a couple great grand sons. I will have to load one year old Henry and drive to pick up his older brother at preschool at noon. My biggest concern is getting him down the steps as I have enough trouble doing steps, always afraid I will fall. I hope I can lead him by the hand and let him walk down the steps behind me.
Yesterday was a meeting with our telephone company at the community building. Then to the bank to sign papers. I went to friendship meals and then came home.
I have been working in the yard, we had a nice rain earlier this week but we need more. My daughter came and helped me plant coral bells. They are a perennial. Then went out to the farm and dug up hardy flocks. I love flowers and trees. Trees take so long but I want lots of trees in my yard.
More rain in the forecast, we really need it. Ponds are dry, crops and grass need water.

Glad you guys came out well.
Sunday I took a day off from exercise (besides I was sore from Saturday!) And yesterday I was downright lazy. I mean, I set up the computer with the exercise videos, but I just didn't want to. So this morning I though, I reeeeally have to do this. My weight is up, and I just can't let it continue to climb. But my knees do hurt. So I did the seated workout - cardio, core, and resistance.
I also went to Aldi's today for bread, milk, and a few other things. Last night I was so-o-o craving junk food, but thank goodness was too lazy to go to the corner convenience store! Then this morning I breakfasted on the muffins my DD had made - steel-cut oat flour, flax, apples, and walnuts, so they were very healthy and nutritious. So when I passed all the snacks, while I DID pause and consider chips and cookies and such - I PASSED them! It's ALWAYS best to eat before you shop, and I know the more I eat really healthy stuff, the less I crave. Shel

No tornadoes not even any rain. Went south of me and north of me in Kansas. Still waiting on rain.

I was up early this morning. I have a batch of cookies baked and another pan of fruit bars. Funeral tomorrow and our town will furnish coffee, tea and snacks after the grave side service. I did not know the lady but sort of a self appointed committee person I am in charge this time of calling people.

Birthday party for Henry today with lunch at his house. He was one the last day of March but things have been so busy that no party until today.

Marlene, I hoe you escape all extreme weather. I think that's one thing I like about being in Rochester, NY - we might get hit with heavy snow, even ice; and the tail end of a hurricane and some high winds. But for the most part we don't get such violent storms as they do in the Midwest.

I'm trying to get back in the habit of exercising, especially after seeing my weight up again. Today I am breaking a Simmons vid up, doing 10 minutes at a time with a 20 minute rest in between, till I build up my stamina.

Hello Marlene and Shelley,
Kids are here from out of town. We are having a lovely time. DS brought his dog, the one we kept while he was in training. My dog and his are having such a wonderful time together. They run and play and then crash for naps and then run and play some more!! ;-)

Shelley love the pics

Hope to be back in a few days!

Stopping by to let you know that I have not forgotten you. Just seems my life is busy. Today I have a club meeting with a club I just joined thinking it would give me something to do. Think I need something to do?? We are having lunch at Friendship Meals then to the library for the meeting.

We are being bombarded with severe weather forecasts. Not sure what to do about that. It looks like where I live is on the edge of the severe weather. Oklahoma says 3-4 pm. Kansas does not really give me a time line, just what is happening in Wichita. I live on the border so kind of left out of the loop. Just have to be prepared.

On Sunday we ALL went to church - my son-in-law-ish took his 3 (my "bonus" grands) to "his" church (the one he chooses on those rare occasions he goes) and my daughter came with her 2 with me. Here's son-in-law with the 3



and the other two



all in Easter finery.

Marlene I agree 100%. It surprises me how "priorities" change as I get older. ;-)

I saw a lovely post on FB.

"In the Garden, Jesus Christ decided He'd rather go to Hell for you than to go to Heaven without you!" Isn't that a great way to put it!

Hope Everyone has a great day!

No egg hunting here, my great grands all had somewhere else to be, so did my kids, and grand kids. I spent the day alone but Easter Sunday is no different from any other Sunday. We need to remember Jesus every day not just one or two special days a year.

This verse was on my daily devotional for Moms.

Matthew 5:43-48New International Version (NIV)
Love for Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Marlene, what a delightful picture!

Sorry I've been MIA. The loss, however temporary, of the SS benefit threw me for a loop. I was going to have one more PT session on Tues, but I cancelled it because of the $15 copay. Now I have to urge myself to work out all on my own. I think it will be easier when the kids go back to school next week.

On a positive note, when I did the bridges this morning, I noticed I could lift my hind end a bit higher than before!

The wind is supposed to be here tomorrow and lower temperatures. I have some plants out but I don't think it is supposed to get that cold tonight.

I am still really tired from my trip yesterday, so I think I will turn in early.

I was gone all day yesterday. I had some business to take care of. My daughter went with me and we had a great day. I read a lot of paperback books so on our way out of town I took a bunch to a retirement facility and exchanged them for other ones. They had a lot of the books that I read. I only read the good clean ones that do not have sex in them. I don't know if the ones I picked up were ones that I have not read but if they are they then will go to the thrift store. I also buy them at the thrift stores when I find them much cheaper than new ones. On the way home we took a detour to see, Henry my great grand baby He is one today but not having a birthday party until a couple weeks. His poor mom is overwhelmed, she is expecting in July and having pre-partum blues. She was much better when we went by.

Tomorrow I am going with my son to find a house to put down on the farm. It will be quite a trip and we will be gone all day.

I better get my Bible reading done before I get side tracked.

Sunday morning, soon will be off to church. Yesterday was a beautiful day. Today is a little cooler but it is still March. At least the wind is not blowing, two more day to see if March goes out like a lamb as the old saying goes.

My daughter and her husband came yesterday and planted some trees for me. I need to buy big trees but these were not that big. I want them to enjoy while I am still on this earth. I love trees.

Not doing much today, I may go work in the yard some. My son in law is going to put blocks around my flower beds to hopefully keep out the Bermuda grass. It is a beautiful day so far.

Hello Friends, Am expecting company tomorrow through Sunday. Not sure how much I will be able to check in. Hope I can some!

Marlene I need to get out in my yard and get some work done too. Has to go on the list for next week! ;-) I am getting more done by keeping a running list. ;-)

Shelley it is a cute cottage. I love being near water. Good for you for exercising and doing cardio. What cardio can you do if you are being easy on your hip? Do you have to walk a certain amount each day? Dear Aunt did after her placement. She was 87 when she had her surgery and did so amazingly well. She went back to live on her own and it is almost 5 yrs ago already.

Daddy'sgirl, that's my friend's cottage by the lake.

Last week I picked up some greenware from a friend of mine and this morning I cleaned some to fire with my hand-sculpted things, so I'll have some projects for the grandkids to paint over break.

Yesterday I had PT so I'm going easy on myself today - though I do want to get in some cardio.

Happy to say my Precious little Grandson is such a delight. Am enjoying having him with me each day.
Not able to mow the grass today other folks stopped by and the schedule got all rearranged. ;-)

Shelley glad you could be with friends yesterday. Cute little cottage in the photo. Is that your house or your friends?

Daddys girl, how nice to see green grass! The old brown stuff is showing through here. Had a dusting of new snow to wake up to, but not too bad. And I'm seeing robins!

Played Scrabble with my friends today. We talk about work and family and everything else under the sun. I missed the last couple of games for some reason Anyway, we planned the next months' "tournaments." In May and June we'll meet at the one friend's cottage on Lake Ontario. It gets breezy, but it's pleasant out there.

Yesterday I didn't exercise much since it was the day after PT and that always leaves me aching. But I did some walking about at the grocery store, and Abi and I went to my school because one of the kids was in part of the spring assembly. We arrived in time for me to see MY class getting ready to go up - I was so glad! And the teacher I work with was glad to see me. But I'll finish the full 12 weeks off, to lessen chance of dislocating this new hip!

That is good news, great for you!!

I guess I never got on here yesterday, I did not even spin the wheel now starting over with the count. Sun is shining today, it was chilly and damp yesterday but we did get some much needed rain. I had to get out and go unlock the Community Building. Tomorrow night is our co-op annual meeting. And they will use the Community Building, they are expecting around 130. It will be catered by a Mennonite restaurant in Yoder, Kansas. The food will be wonderful.

Nice pic, Marlene!
Today my surgeon was impressed with my recovery, walking without cane or walker after only 6 weeks. He's glad I'm taking the full 12 weeks off from work though, so's not to risk bending over too far and dislocating the new joint. AND - we scheduled surgery to replace my left knee, for the end of June, so I can recover during summer vacation! emoticon

Thanks for the wishes of a safe trip Saturday. We had a wonderful trip and was gone 12 hours. We had a great time at the 50th. I saw lots of nieces and their families. Even my singing was not bad and I had lots of compliments. I was exhausted when I got home. Yesterday church meeting twice and company in the afternoon. I got on here late and was just too tired to post.
Today Directv people came to get my dish relined..Now to have television again. It was out for a week.

I grew up not 30 miles from where I live now. The trip was to Topeka Kansas where my niece and her husband live. 300 miles away.It wasn't over yet but the fat lady sang anyway.

Yeah, my daughter and I get asked if we're sisters - great for ME, I dunno about HER! emoticon We also sound a lot alike on the phone. And I'm noticing it's getting a bit harder to distinguish my granddaughter's voice from my daughter's when on the phone!

Hello Friends!
Shelley great pics! Yes you do look like your sister. ;-) DD and I are often asked if we are sisters. I feel sorry for my DD as she surely does not look like my sister but my daughter!! She is glad we favor so much.
That is a cute story of your poodle and your sister! Amazing her scent was so close yours too.

Marlene how nice to be called your sister's name! ;-) Have a good trip to your former home and to the wedding anniversary! Good for you for singing the special again! What a special gift to them!!

Hope Everyone has a great weekend! I am looking forward to one!!

When you go to reply, you can see "add an image" is a new option.

I love to tell the story of when we used to have miniature poodles. My younger sister - the one in the previous pic - came to visit, and Franky our youngest poodle strolled up to her and put his front paws on her, wagging, and she petted him, conversing with our Mom (who lived with me at the time.) Then I started coming downstairs, talking, and Franky looked up at me, then did a double take at my sister. Like, "HEY, YOU'RE not my Mom!" Instantly dropped his paws and started barking furiously at her.

Here's an old picture of my son with our "pack" - Franky is the larger silver one on the right.

Sometimes I get called by my youngest sister's name, makes me feel so good. She is skinny and does not have white hair but is also 10 years younger than me. I used to color my hair until I discovered after getting a perm that I had gray hair. I have not colored it since and my hair is natural curly so don't get perms anymore either.

I am reading daily bible reading on the CHRONOLOGICAL bible on Biblegateway.com Have you ever checked out bible gateway? It is a wonderful site. You can read the Bible in several versions and also languages. It has a box with drop down under study. It has audio Bible that you can listen to even when you are doing something else on the computer.

Today I am going out to where I lived before I moved to this small town. We had wild cats in the barn and someone feeds them but I take out table scraps when I can. Probably feeding the skunks and coyotes, too?? Going to take a long trip to Topeka tomorrow to a 50th Wedding celebration. I sang at their wedding and am going to try to sing the same song now 50 years later.

How do you put those pictures on your message??
