It is raining here today too! So lovely the temps instead of the hot normal summer weather.

You have your day well underway already! I am off to work more on the baby quilt for my great niece. Then will just have the hand stitching to do! ;-)

Funny puppy, they are so much fun. emoticon

It is raining here today, weather man said it would. emoticon emoticon emoticon
It is not raining hard just a slow gentle rain. I did put on my late DH's rain coat and walk to the mail box. I had to go around by the road as there is a ditch between the house and the mailbox. And it is full of water.

I put out what I thought was steak but it is boneless pork chops. I put them in the crock pot this morning. Now they are nice and tender but I put cream of chicken soup on them and it makes them kind of salty. Leg still hurts but the swelling has gone down some.

emoticon No housework today. Just sitting around. I did have the laptop on and every time I had to get up I had to put down the foot ledge on the recliner, put down the laptop and get up. Then when I went back had to do it back up again. I am now on the desktop as much easier to use.

Marlene so glad you don't have blood clots. That was what I was concerned about! Keeping your leg up might help too. Smart to ask the ladies to come to you for Bible Study! Rest and let that leg heal!! Wishing and praying for the best!

My 15 week old puppy got my rolled up towel this morning. It is for back support so it is held in place with 2 large rubber bands. He kept shaking the roll and couldn't figure out why it stayed together!! LOL I am glad he didn't chew on a rubber band! He would have been shocked by the smack on his mouth!

I went to Dr yesterday, my leg was swollen tight. I had a sonogram .No blood clots in my leg. She did not call until 7:30 last evening.Probably just a pulled muscle(my DX from the beginning). The swelling has gone down quite a bit this morning, but it is still painful. She is calling Lasix to pharmacy so I will have DD pick it up as I think I have a couple of small great grands coming this morning to stay while mom cleans house at her house. Baby Henry four months old, Phog age 4 and 1/2, Pharmacy is 12 miles away and the Rx is probably not even filled yet. She wanted me to take it first thing this morning and I would have if I could have picked it up when I was there yesterday morning. If I take it at noon, I will probably be up all night in the bathroom. Quilting and Bible study this afternoon but not sure if I will still have kids and no way can I take them with this leg even if it is just a block away. I think I will call and see if they want to come to my house for Bible study. I don't quilt just visit.

I have a load of clothes in the washer so I better go put them in the dryer. I have to be careful not to use electricity in afternoon from 2-7 pm. The price is higher. The program is called smart hours. Kind of a pain but I can turn the AC up to a higher temp. I don't run it as low as the program suggests. The smart hour program is just week days and that is good because I washed and dried clothes for four kids all day Saturday after kids had been at camp all week.

Got into Lima yesterday morning. It's been a time of visiting , people coming HERE to the church to see me, especially my 'kids'. I made a chicky veggy soup and served it to them along with PBJ's - a taste of 'American cooking'. Shel

Yes!! You do amaze me!! So sweet of your DD to make you sit down and she did the dishes. Is the swelling down in your leg this morning? Glad you are seeing the Dr today. Hope it is nothing serious. We are planning a baby shower. Ddil has friends from Thailand they will be in town in Aug. so we are doing it so they will be able to attend.

Hope you can rest when you get home!!

I really thought I was on here yesterday to post but I can not find where I did. I can tell you why. I had 4 great grands ages 9 to 14. Little ones take a lot of time but so do 4 bigger ones. The 14 year old did not want to be bothered with the younger ones, they annoyed him. Fun time had by all. I got past it good. They were good most of the time. We cooked out on the grill last night. One would only eat hot dogs, one ate hamburger, two ate chicken. I did not cook much else, Had lots of chips, 14 yr old would eat only pringles.I made bacon sandwiches for lunch yesterday and my son and I had bacon and tomato, one kid ate bacon and scramble egg, one ate just a bacon sandwich and one just ate bacon, the other one 14 year old was asleep and slept most of the day. Today for lunch we had chef salad with left over chicken, one ate salad without tomatoes, one ate a warmed up hamburger, one ate chicken and the 14 yr old ate hotdogs. Now they are all gone home. so nice and quiet around here now. My DD and her DH had came after one of the boys in time for church so they also were here at lunch. My DD made me go sit down and she did the dishes.

I have been having trouble with pain in my right leg and now swelling in my calf and foot. The left foot is okay. I have a hair appointment early in the morning and now a Dr. Appointment at 11 in the same town. It started worrying me when only one foot was swelling. I was on my feet a lot yesterday but still only one foot is swollen. I thought maybe too much salt but you would think both feet would swell.

Marlene you are an amazing GGM!! Hope you can find an easy menu. It is warm and July!! :-)
I have the same issue with paperwork. I file what I can but things with a question about them sit!
Do you need rain? A bonfire sounds like fun and cook hotdogs!


I have a to do list that keeps getting side tracked. :-)

Have a great weekend!

Today is just another day, not doing much. I have been sorting some papers. Things accumulate and then I toss them in a basket. I am trying to sort out the basket and toss what I can. I copy recipes and never use them. I need to quit that because most of them are in the trash now.

Tomorrow morning I will go up to camp to get great grands. I guess four of them will be coming home with me to spend the night. I need to get a menu planned, maybe cook out on the grill but it is so hot.

I am on my third batch of sand plum butter this morning. I cook it in the microwave so I don't have to stir it. I do 10 minutes at a time and do stop the microwave to stir about every 5 minutes. I am making smaller batches today as yesterday it boiled over. I should have 16 to 17 pints which is more than I need, but I will probably give a lot to kids and grandkids. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello Dear Friends,
Been a long hard day today. Had to take my Sheltie to the Vet. She is 16 yrs old and the Vet wanted to keep her and run some blood work. Haven't heard back from the Vet yet.

Marlene what a good visit with your friend! Glad you made it home safely. It always worries me when I need to drive tired.

Shelley my cousins and I are spread all over too. Would love to have a family reunion. It has been so long since we have all been together.

Off to care for all things that needed to be done! ;-)
Hugs to you all!

Yesterday a friend named Pat was in Oklahoma from California at her sister's home 35 miles from here. Neither of them have a car. She used to live in my small town so I drove down and got Pat early yesterday morning and brought her home with me. Her sister could not come along. Pat spent the day with me and visiting neighbors. She still has a house here full of everything and we went there looking for stuff. No AC and we got too hot so quit looking for quilt blocks that she said were in a box. And we could not find them nor the family Bible. We went to the local cafe at noon and saw several friends and some of them even came to the house and visited. Then yesterday evening I took her back but we stopped on the way to visit with another lady. Pat said, "Oh, I would like to see Velma" We were driving by Velma's house so we stopped and visited a short time before finishing our trip to take Pat back to her sister's house. Then I had to drive home tired by myself. I had a great day.

Nothing like a good ol' American cookout!
I managed to load pix along with the more recent blogs.
Last night my hip was hurting SO BAD, it was hard to sleep - I got up and took another 1/2 meloxicam. I think it wasn't just the bone-on-bone issue: I'd also worked out with the band that morning and I think the muscles were protesting. Which means I used them.
Since pix load so slowly, I have to put a timer on to make sure i get up and move around a bit. Shel

This evening I am going to a cookout before going to church. DGD wants to reveal if it is a girl or boy that she is carrying. Blue cake for boy, pink cake if it is a girl. She is not telling until then. First grand child of her DH's and his mother and dad are so excited.

Marlene your pickles sound wonderful! Yes canning makes a big mess but and kind of sweet pickles are sticky and a bigger mess. You are such a blessing to your family! I am sure DS will appreciate them!

Shelley glad you are with us for awhile yet. You are missed! Glad you are having a good time!
I imagine batteries are hard to keep and carry for your trip! Charging a phone must not be easy either!! Will go and read your blogs later today.

I am home from spending 3 days with Moms and their now adult daughters. We were a group of friends that did field trips etc together when your children were young and homeschooled. What a great time we had! It rained much of the weekend but we still *need* so much rain. It will take months of rain to fill the area lakes as they look more like pasture land than a lake. I have never seen anything like it in the 40 yrs I have lived here. We have had 6 yrs of drought now. But we are so thankful for each drop we get.
Flash floods happen because the ground is so hard and can't soak in. So instead of it doing too much good it runs off. Thanks for praying for rain for us!

Hugs to you Dear Ladies!! Happy Lord's Day!

Daddy's Girl, not moving yet.
Right now I'm in Chiclayo. Spoke at an AoG last night and will be doing some visitation later today. I have to get more batteries and/or charger for my camera.

I LOVE bread and butter pickles! My mom made the greatest DILL pickles, such that my kids would always compare restaurant pickles to hers.

I AM having a good time. Check out my blogs - I managed to slip some pix in (not always possible - had to back up and edit!) Shel

A nephew in law brought me a sack of cucumbers so I made 15 pints of bread and butter pickles and was late last evening cleaning up the mess. I always make a mess and the liquid is very sticky. I don't plan on making anymore. I don't eat many of them and DS is not here that often so I will probably send jars home with him.

It has been raining lightly all morning, not like it is in South Texas. They are about to wash away. I guess they don't have a draught anymore there.

Marlene so glad you can work in your garden! It sounds lovely. I love roses but don't have any knock out roses. They are so pretty. we seem to have flowers blooming most months except the very depths of winter and sometimes we have pansies then. I love flowers. Veggie gardens just don't do well for me.
Glad your DGGD slept well. Kids will tire like that and that seems to be when they grow too. ;-)

Have a great week!

I worked in the yard this morning for over a hour. I sweat a lot but also watered my hair by accident with the garden hose. I dead headed my bee balms and my knockout roses. They bloomed a lot so I hope they will again with the old blooms cut off. I have one knockout rose that I started under a fruit jar. Not very big yet but it has bloomed. Last year I planted a lot of bushes, crape myrtles and forsythias. I planted some trees last year and bought a bigger one, it is doing good but the smaller ones struggle. The arbor society sent me a bunch of tiny trees this spring but they are not doing very good, too little. I need to go to the nursery and buy some bigger ones.

No rain so I watered this morning. I have spaghetti squash vines in my flower bed and I found three squash this morning. They like to hide. I thought I planted zucchini but guess not or they did not come up. My DGS has a big garden and he brings me zucchini and yellow squash. I wish I could find cucumbers to make bread and butter pickles. Not for me but my son.

My DGGD did sleep good, she must have really tired for some reason.

Wow! Cooking and church camp and making plum jelly too! She is a busy lady! Glad you got a good supply of plums!
How nice to have your children and grands visit!
Hope she sleeps so you can sleep! ;-)

DDil's surprise birthday party went very well yesterday. Good turn out and even though her Mom walked into the apartment before they had left she was still surprised by all who came! It was a great day and I even got a nap before dinner and a movie together.

Happy Lord's Day to you all!

DD, her DH and step grand came and we went and picked lots of plums. I let DD take them as she makes jelly to sell at church camp. She had to go cook yesterday as the lady that was cooking this week and to leave because of a death in the family. My DD is the head cook and will be there for the next two weeks. She does come home Saturday and goes back Sunday after church.

Today I had my son and his two grown children for lunch, his daughter's husband was with her and three kids. Seems I cooked all morning, made homemade rolls and etc. Also ate too much. They stayed quite awhile in the afternoon. Then all left except my great granddaughter, she wanted to stay with grandma. She is the one that had her 9th birthday party last evening. I was so tired that I laid down on the bed to watch the news and went to sleep. I did not sleep very long. Sat down in the living room to watch wheel of fortune. I had to take the TV away from my great GD. She was watching a kids program. She laid down on the couch and she went to sleep. She is up now but I am not sure if she will be able to sleep tonight as she slept a couple hours on the couch.

DS is giving Ddil a surprise party tomorrow. Helping get things together. Looking forward to a nice visit with family and friends. ;-)

Indeed having a great time!
Will miss the family when I go to Lima on the 14th, but at least my new school Schedule will enable me to wake Levi and have a bit of devotional time with him before we both go to work.

Hi Marlene,
So glad to see you posting. I hope your children will still come if you are counting on it. I know I love it when my children come visit.
Sand plums ... never heard of them. Glad they are so prolific this year! Sound delicious!!
Grandchildren in England must be hard to have them so far away. Love the ways we an communicate now. When English War Brides came to the states years ago they and their parents didn't have such luxuries for sure!!

Yesterday my Ddil had her first sonogram. She and my DS don't want to know the baby's gender but they didn't mind that my DD and I know. At first the baby wouldn't show then the tech found out. The parents didn't even know she found out. ;-) Now to keep our secret! ;-) Having a Grandchild will be such a blessing!!

Have a great day!! Nice to visit with you again!

It rained an inch and three quarters early this morning. emoticon
Now the sun emoticon is coming out so it will be steamy but right now it is in the 60s. emoticon but supposed to get in the 90s this afternoon.

My DD, her DH and step grandson were coming down this morning and pick sand plums, they are thick this year. I am not sure if the will come now because of the muddy roads to get to the plums. I think they are still on Skype talking to their grandkids in England.

emoticon emoticon emoticon Drink the water and eat vegetables.

Hi Ladies! Sorry I have been MIA. Went out of town to visit DH's family and then have Ladies from another SP group at my house for the weekend. What fun we had! Now my kids are home as it is Middle Son's birthday and we all want to help him celebrate!

Glad to catch up with the both of you and glad you are both doing well!!

Maureen you amaze me with your energy and stamina! I hope I am as good with my Grandbaby (due in Nov) as you are with your Greats!! When is your Granddaughter getting married! Weddings can be expensive but don't have to be. DS and his wife did a great job with theirs. Had lots of help making things instead of having to buy them.

Shelley when is your trip and how long will you be gone? Glad you are getting things done before you go!

Hugs and blessings to you both!

I never got here yesterday. I had baby Henry from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm. He is a good baby but still about too much for me for that long. His Mother did not leave the four year old,she thought that was too much for me. He went to his grandpa's. These two are her parents only grandchildren.

We had more rain yesterday morning but none today. It is really nice because we had a draught. but some of the farmers don't have their wheat cut and the weeds grow and the wheat doesn't do as good. This year it was not too good because it had been so dry.

I went to town this morning to the dentist. He said my tooth was okay that it just hasn't healed yet. It has been a month, how long does it take for a root canal to heal? He gave me another round of antibiotic for 10 days. I don't like taking antibiotic and guess I could have refused but if there is still some infection I want to get it stopped.

I drove my Explorer that I had just washed at the car wash. It was cloudy but the weatherman said no rain. And it didn't until I got home and got it back in the garage, It did not rain very much but maybe enough to keep my SIL from mowing my yard.

We had some thunderstorms passing through - some fast and furious, some just kind of moseying by. I like the sound of the rain.It cooled things off a LITTLE, but it's muggy.

Today is Abi's BF's birthday. After work I'll take her to pick up a cake. Tonight I'm going to Bible study at my pastor's request - so he can give me the offering for the mission trip. I think I'll try to get a nap today because I had a hard time sleeping between the heat and the barking dog down the street. Some people are so inconsiderate!

It is raining at Marlene's. I think it has passed but my yard was under water as it rained so fast and could not drain off. I had to take my shoes off to go check the rain gauge. one and one half inches. The puddles of water came up to my ankles and much more where I did not walk.

I won't have to water my lawn for several days. There was a real loud thunder a little while ago it was a boom!!!! I jumped in my chair.

It's obscene how much is spent on weddings these days. There are ways to make things special without going through a year's wages!
There are just a few more things I want to get to finish up my packing, mainly a couple of skirts for my pastora friend. I may just go to VOA by Wednesday to see what's available.
This week finishes up exams - they're the RCT's, the Regents Competency Tests, kind of a second chance for special ed students if they failed the Regents themselves. Proctoring is a fairly easy assignment.

I got on the bike for 30 minutes this morning. Won't have many more days to do so. But I'm packing my resistance bands. Shel

Today I finished my vacuuming I started yesterday so had to finish so I could put away the vacuum cleaner. DS called and said he was coming for lunch and probably his cousin(my Nephew). I fixed what I thought was a healthy lunch with baked fish, baked potato, grilled squash and fruit. But of course that will start the rest of my day in a binge. I did pretty good yesterday and so far today so I need to stay out of the kitchen but need to do dishes.

My granddaughter in Orlando, Florida is trying on wedding dresses today with her mother(my DD) and her cousin(my granddaughter). So far they have texted me 5 or 6 dresses. Then they went to lunch and are going to another bridal shop. OH my and I am sure they are expensive.

I got up before my alarm, so I did 30 on the bike. Since my van - inspected and with oil change - is on the inside, I'll walk to work. It's supposed to be nice today, 70 - not too hot!

What a great great grandma you are!
Today after work I'm taking my van for an oil change and inspection. The inspection isn't actually due till end of August, but of course I'll be out of the country. I COULD leave it to Abi's BF to take care of it, but he's not all that reliable. I'd rather get it done early and not have to worry about it.
The teacher I worked with gave me a gift card to Barnes and Noble. I got 2 journals for the next mission trip!
We had a major thunderstorm last night. It helped to cool things off a bit. The next few days aren't supposed to be as hot, which is nice for the kids taking exams.

Sorry I have not been here. Baby sitting and also was gone three days to a family reunion. Baby sitting my great grandson two and half months old. I stayed with him the night before I left for the reunion and now I am back at his house taking care of him. Parents are supposed to be home today,I hope because i am tired and want to go home. I am concerned about my yard and flowers. I have not been home to spend the night since Thursday afternoon. The first night I had the four year old, too. He is at is grandpas now and will probably come home today. I am on my iPad.

Baby says he is hungry. Bye

I called my father-in-law yesterday morning to wish him Happy Father's Day, and practically had to yell into the phone because it was raining there, and they have the corrugated steel roof that makes a lot of noise when it rains.

Got on the bike today for 25 minutes, after having foregone it for a few days due to this cold. Still snuffly but feeling a bit better. Last day of classes today! Wonder what attendance will be like?

Speaking of mock oranges...Years ago we had an ice storm in the area, and as a result one of the trees next to my house was cut down. Lo and behold, that year I see these lovely blooms - there had been a mock orange there all this time, but the other tree shaded it so it didn't have a chance to do anything!

Today I have to go to the store for the usual bread, milk, and toilet paper. But we're also getting brownie makings for Fathers Day. I still want to lie low, but if Abi goes into the store, that would be all right. I think I may avoid the extreme sore throat Abi had.

Toughing out another day at school because there are so many papers to grade - Monday is our last day of classes. The teacher wants the kids to have as much of a chance to pass as possible. Of course, chances are better if they COME TO CLASS!

My mock orange is in bloom. Pretty and sweet smelling!

The shower was nice. There HAD been a collection to get gifts from a group, but I like to keep a crochet project in progress for just such occasions. So the afghan was greeted with "oooh's" and "aaah's" and "Did someone MAKE that?" I make them larger , enough to cover an ADULT, so they last!

I feel crummy today - congested. Toughing it out at work because of proctoring for science lab part of exams.

So glad I mowed a couple days ago - got a couple of brief downpours yesterday (like turning the faucet on and off) and expect more today.

Oh I imagine so with a female, Shelley!! I did mean to say "to give him".

Have fun at the baby shower. My crocheted ruffle baby socks are still a hit at showers. They are fun and easy to make. Just need a new source of socks now.

Gotta go get breakfast!! ;-) I'm starving!! ;-)

It was worse when we also had the female! We used to have 4 miniature poodles, and DH and I joked that we had a big dog in 4 installments.

Had a rough night due to inconsiderate neighbors being all loud after 11 pm, and their inconsiderate friends. So reset my alarm for an extra 1/2 hour and didn't get on bike.

My supervisor's baby shower is after work today. I crocheted an afghan.

Have a great day, all!

Puppy is from a Leonburger mix mother and a fence jumper Dad! ;-) He was only seen fleeing the yard so owner wasn't sure if he was a golden lab or a boxer, maybe a golden retriever. Anyway he will be a large dog. He is so cute and has a thick coat.

Glad you got so much done yesterday! Timers are great helpers!!

Marlene so glad you didn't have to run for the shelter and have gotten a good amount of rain. We have too and it is such a blessing!

Wow, I read about you scooping water and that reminded me I had to go down to the basement to empty the bucket that catches the drip. I have been telling Abi she needs to do that at least twice, better 3x a day if she wants to keep the basement floor dry.

Yesterday I was busy preparing a video to present at church before service starts the Sunday before I leave. I put a timer on for every 20 minutes or so to remind myself to get up and move around. So I got tons of laundry done, and swept my room and the room off the dining room.

I could not get the spark page to work so was going to x out of spark and try again, Instead I x'ed out of the internet and had to start all over again. Here I am again, so will type a few words.

Last night I went out and worked in the yard and then did some weed eating on some grass that had got away from me. When my DSIL mowed for me, he did weed eating, too. But I guess he thought there were flowers in the tall grass and did not do them. Just got taller. The flowers were iris but too late for them to bloom so I wacked at them. My battery for my weed eater is charging so maybe this evening I will do some more. We had three inches of rain fast and furious last night. They kept saying possible tornado so I got all the stuff ready to run to the shelter but my weather radio never went off so I went to bed. Sure was a nice rain and my lawn looks pretty and green. The rain filled up the tub that my herbs are in so I tried scooping water out of it. Probably needs a hole or two in the bottom so it can drain. Once after I got in bed there was a loud clap of thunder that I about jumped out of bed.

Well, I'm not exactly changing JOBS...just SCHOOLS.
Puppies are a lot of work, but a worthwhile investment! Have fun! Is that a yellow lab or a golden retriever or what?

So sorry I have been missing in action. Was given a puppy and he is keeping me super busy! He is 7 weeks old and house training is a constant effort! I have lost 3 lbs. He is the answer to my prayers! ;-) He really is, in more than one way!!

Shelley so sorry you have to change jobs after all this time but am sure the Lord has a blessing there!

Marlene hope you are doing well. I too have a list of things I am grateful for! Helps me to count my blessings!!

I will get back and chat when I can!

Hugs to you both!

Tell him to borrow a chain saw and come and help!!! LOL then he can have all of the tree he wants.

I have the sheets off the bed washed and dried and ready to put back on. I have to get all I can done early before the limit of electric usage in the afternoon. I don't run my AC as low as they recommend so that is a plus for me.

Today is quilting at the shop. I don't quilt but I am good at visiting, also ladies Bible class after quilting.

Good going, Marlene!

Today my grandson called my attention to a tree in our backyard - the trunk had rotted at the base, and it toppled over onto the garage. I think it went slowly enough, so it didn't crash through the roof. It's pulled one wire down, and another is caught in the branches. I called electric first, and they ascertained their lines weren't affected - it's phone and cable. So I called THEM and they'll come tomorrow to see what's to be done. I just hope I don't have to shell out for hacking up the tree - already had that ONE expense of the squirrel in the drain pipe!

Spoke to my son today - he'd been on a camping trip over the weekend and enjoyed spotting various flora and fauna. I told him about the shelf fungus on the rotted trunk, and he asked me to dry some for him. So, I got THAT for him, drying in his erstwhile room. Shel

I was cleaning out a drawer of papers here by my computer and came across a list I started last winter for things I was thankful for. I need to start again because I am so blessed. One of those that will be on my list is friends like you.

Aw, Marlene...It's so easy to get into having pity parties, isn't it? Start putting on "Thanky Pants" (sorry, best I could come up with... emoticon ) Whenever I start to get into such a mood I turn my focus for things I can be thankful for.

Well, I can't believe I ended up getting up early today, though being Saturday, I COULD have slept in.
I did 15 on the bike, after arguing with myself. And I've been doing laundry and HEAVY CLEANING in the basement. Got rid of 3 large bags of trash, including a very interesting looking fungus - looks like a lasagna noodle, you know, flat with wavy sides. A decomposer feeding on damp cardboard!
And I took breaks now and then to watch episodes of Psych on Netflix. Right now I'm taking a break by Sparking! Shel

Does not seem fair after 14 years but maybe God has a better plan for you. Good luck in your search.

The sun is shining here, still need rain but so far it is a beautiful day. I am kind of lonely and not sure if anyone will come today. My DD and her DH are home from England but I have not seen them. They are busy catching up with yard work and etc. I have talked to my DD several times. I never know about my son as his wife is not too fond of me and is really demanding so if he comes he will come by himself. She had to have a horse and it is at my farm but no thanks for that from her. DGD has three kids in summer sports so I doubt if I see them unless I go to the games, which I would like but most are in the evening and means driving home after dark. DGS is working two jobs, one his regular job and the other for his father in law. He also has a large garden. Guess I am just having a pity party here all by myself.

Well, I got a letter telling me I've been "displaced" - meaning, there is no longer a position for me at the school where I've served these 14 years. I have to go to the meeting on transfer day to get a new assignment. I'm thinking of this high school which is closest and a most direct route, whether I opt to drive or take the bus. I actually lean towards taking the bus, as a new "mission field." anyway, I'll see what's open to me.

I was on the bike for 30 minutes this morning. Yay me!

Just stopping by to say Good Morning. I need to run to town 12 miles away and get a few things, then run back home to wait on the Terminix man. Not termites found but I still want it treated, I spent way to much for this house to not keep it protected.

Got on the bike for 15 minutes this morning. I am probably walking to school because Abi's BF's car is on the outside and I don't feel like shuffling the cars around. Oh well, it's a little extra cardio.
Also went to the basement and sorted clothes and started a load of whites. Always something to do!

Worked the elections today. Glad it is done! Slow day. A shame more folks don't turn out to vote.
Got to see some neighbors I haven't seen in a long time. Am ready for bed! The day sure started early!

Well, there were only a couple of things I didn't find - the plasticene and the cap. I also got a wading pool for the kids, to set up on June 2nd, my granddaughter's birthday (the 3rd is the twins' birthday). That'll be my present to them! I got a water filter to put on our kitchen faucet but neither Abi nor I could get it screwed on. So I'm taking it back. Guess we'll just get one for the pitcher. It's just that we didn't want to crowd the fridge with a water pitcher. When you buy groceries for 3 adults and 5 kids, refrigerator space is at a premium!

Considering how badly I ate over the weekend, my weight wasn't too bad this morning! I'll bet I would have gotten to ONEderland if I had used more self- control and eaten less potato salad, cake, and ice cream!

I went up to spell check and hit x out, now I have to start over.

I have been to Wally World 3 times and Wally Land in California once 50 years ago. Not wanting to go back again. I will be going to Florida (Lord Willing) in November for my granddaughter's wedding.

I got up early as usual, sent a text to my son about feed/weed for the lawn to see if put it on wet grass or dry. He said wet so I decided beings the dew was on the grass and no one was going to offer to do it for me I went out and did part of the yard. That was a tiring job because it was so humid. I pulled a lot of weeds that I did not get over and then put Roundup on the sidewalk to kill the grass and weeds in the old sidewalk. When I first moved here last year I worked and worked on the sidewalk. Most of it was not even visible. Now it is and hard to keep weeds and grass from growing in the cracks. I worked in the yard until I decided it was time quit and rest.

I had some left overs from Saturday so I took them over to a neighbor. She did not tell me that she had a lot of leftovers from a two day reunion her family had. Also she is leaving sometime this week for a couple months. She has to walk with a walker. Her son is coming sometime to do some work on her house then he is going to take her to Texas to see her husband. Her fridge is full and really needs cleaned. I intend to ask her son to let me know when she is leaving so I can go over and help her clean out her fridge. Everything will be spoiled if she is gone two months. She wants to give me a key but I really don't want the responsibility of it. I told her I would watch the outside of the house. I thought her daughter was going to stay but she is also going to be gone so I may have to go over and water the garden.

Now I am here at the computer but almost time to warm up some of those leftovers for me. If the children are little make sure to get the markers that are washable if they get on their clothes and hands.

Have a good day.

Sounds like a fun trip to Wally-World! We have them here too. ;-) Sounds like some great ideas of things to take to Peru with you! Your trip will be here before you know it!

Yesterday I got to hold a 6 week old puppy! I really wanted to keep him. But he will be a big dog 75 lbs when full grown. Right now isn't a good time for me to train a puppy. He was beautiful and so sweet too! He fell asleep in my arms! I could have gotten attached very quickly! ;-)

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I want to take a run to "Wally-World" (Walmart) today to see about picking up a few things for my Honey - he asked about screwdrivers and scissors for cutting hair. His youngest daughter would like a "Raggae" cap (like with the Jamaican colors). A niece would like Crayola markers for her little boy, and I think I'll get two sets - one to leave with her, and one for another niece with children. I also want to get some plasticene. You know, little things that encourage creativity. And I want to get some notebooks for my son, for journaling purposes.
Saturday I dropped some of my son's stuff off, iincluding his unicycle, and took him with me to the public market where I treated him to breakfast and two of the 50 bandanas I bought for "kids" in Peru.

Well, my project today was to see if I could clear the clog for my basement sink. The good news is that, despite stiffness from arthritis, I was able to get down on the basement floor and check the trap under the basement sink...all clear...and check the pipes leading down below ground...clear...and get back UP. The BAD news is - the blockage is beyond my ability to clear, and so I had to call someone from outside. The GOOD news is...I get a senior discount.

Cooking today for school reunion. Country School I went to through my 6th grade. No Kindergarten. No school there since 1946 or 1947.

I made some Easy Apple Dumplings. I think I got the recipe off Facebook. They are made of crescent rolls around an eighth of an apple then sauce and lemon lime soda. I made a half recipe because I don't expect many to be at the reunion. Not a lot of us left.

cloudy today but no rain yet.

My project for the day is to paint the outside garage wall. DSs replaced it and it needs to be painted before it rains this weekend. Praise the Lord DD is helping me!
Happy Memorial Day to you all!

Too bad I can't ship you some of ours!
I'm looking forward to the 4 day weekend. Different options open up. And I don't really have to be the one leaving the house - I'll gladly let Abi and the gang use the van to take a day trip. But I wonder if her BF's other 3 kids - or even he himself - have ever been to Letchworth Park. It's where my family would go for Memorial Day, with a nice picnic. We'd set up at Wolf Creek, at one of the stone tables, and we'd hike across the creek and waterfall a ways. We'd also go to Inspiration Point. These are city kids. I think it would be great for them to see some of the countryside. Shel

I remember the battle over one bathroom and I only had two kids. DH stayed in bed until I went to work and the kids went to school.

I sprayed around the house this morning for bugs, also the inside and outside of the garage. I need to mix more Tempo and spray inside the house. I got tired, but probably should have stuck with it so I can put the pump away. I bought dry weed and feed for the lawn but waiting for grandson to bring me a spreader,

Still forecast for rain all weekend, too bad for the holiday but we need the rain so bad that I will take it whenever it comes.

My daughter Abi told me last night that she suddenly remembered that I may be needed as a witness for her BF's court date this morning. So, I had to call my supervisor and let her know I wouldn't be coming in today (guess I'll use one of my sick days). It turned out I wasn't needed after all. But he appreciated my presence and prayer support, especially since none of his own family members came. (His pastor did, though.)
But as the children were getting ready to go to school this morning, I was glad that on work days I am up and out before they get up, as I listened to squabbles for the bathroom. You know, old house, single bathroom, FIVE kids...

Shelley what a blessing to help a friend! I am sure she was thrilled beyond thankful! Congrats on finishing the crocheted blanket. The baby shower and baby's first birthday party were fun. Got to see lots of friends at both events.
DSs are here to work on my house the next couple days. Not sure how soon I will return! Lovely weather today!

The fellowship Friday was sweet. Saturday I chilled at home, and managed to finish crocheting the afghan for my supervisor's baby shower next month. I finished watching the series Breaking Bad on Netflix. Then yesterday I got back on the exercise track, doing 30 on the bike, before going to a friend's - was going to be for Scrabble, but since one of our number was sick, we decided to tackle some little household jobs in our hostess' house after having a nice lunch. I put plates on outlets, the other friend put up curtain rods, while our hostess went up and down stairs for supplies. Each of us did what was in her physical capacity! Our hostess was grateful to tears for the help. She's blind in one eye and has other physical problems.

Did 30 on the bike this morning as well!

Marlene glad your DSis makes the effort to come visit with you even if she can't stay too long. Sounds like you had a sweet visit. Thanks for the piano video. DD is a piano teacher. I will show it to her as well! ;-)

Had a great visit with my sister and her DD. They did not stay very long, my sister gets tired. She walks with a walker or rides in a wheelchair and tires quickly. No place like home, my home other than the ramp on the deck is not really handicap accessible.

If you like piano music this is a must watch. It starts out with a shaky camera but it is worth listening to.

Glad you got some much needed rain (am I right about that), Shelley! Sorry it means water in the basement thought! Hope you enjoyed your ladies' meeting.

DD, 2 friends and I got together for our tatting night last night. Funny how we are doing other projects as well now too! One knits, 2 of of crochet and the last ... well she does all kinds of things. Last night she made beautiful hair flower decorations for a friend that had to have brain surgery and had to have her hair shaved. We always have a fun time together!

My DD ABi got the lawn mowed yesterday - so nice to see when I got home! So GLAD she did, because it started raining later, and it's been continuing. I now have a sizeable pond of water in the back yard, and not unexpectedly, the seepage in the basement.
Tonight's a ladies' fellowship meeting at the home of one of the women from my church. I'm looking forward to going - have asked Abi if she wants to join me to get a break from the kids for some ADULT company. emoticon

My sister and her DD will be here around 11. My sister is 88 and does not drive anymore. She is the main reason that I put a ramp on my deck so she could come and see me. And who know at my age how soon I will need it or other friends my age.

I have been buying stepping stones to put from the drive to the ramp but have not put them out yet as they need to be set down in the grass so they can be mowed over.

Again, Shelley, I am so sorry. Some illnesses are so hard to find "fixes" for!! I am glad he made it to shelter and let someone know!

I have to get out and mow the yard today. Between the rain and busy schedule I have to get it done today! ;-)

I think PTSD has SOMETHING to do with it, but he seemed to have issues even before going to war - My DD's have looked things up and believe he has a personality disorder - narcissism. He can be very manipulative. Thing is, I'm so easy-going!
Anyway, DD Abi says good news is that he got in touch with his ex-wife and let it be known he made his way to the veterans' group home - so at least he is sheltered.
I miss watching Breaking Bad with him!

Alas, my son just couldn't control his anger issues. I had to make him leave yesterday for the sake of Abi and the kids. Abi said she just didn't feel safe with him. Home should be a refuge, a safe haven. I'm hoping he went to the Veterans Outreach, but he is proud - he will probably try to hook up with some musician associates. At least the weather is better.
