I have been gone most of the day. This morning as soon as the mail went, I went to an open house at a bank 15 miles away. Snacks and stuff like calenders, rain gauges, note pads, pencils all for the taking, but I learned years ago not to take so many things that I will not use. From there I went to my sister's. Her DH had taken the door off my china cabinet to get a new glass put in. I broke the glass when I moved here cleaning it. It sprinkled and rained lightly before getting to my sisters. It was very damp and cold. I needed to go to the flower shop to send flowers to a friend in the hospital there and then on to Walmart. By the time I got to Walmart it was raining and sometimes sleeting. It was very busy and frustrating at Wally World. Rude people and long lines to the check out. I was only buying household things as I already have presents taken care of except for making candy, cookies and etc. It rained on my all the way home, I had to run the defroster as it was getting colder and turning to ice. It rained, sleeted and snowed coming home. I put the car in the garage instead of parking by the house to unload things. My garage is not attached so I had to carry stuff up steps into the house. I finally got most of the things in, now the steps are covered with snow and will probably be very slick by morning. Sure is good to be home and to be inside where it is warm. God takes good care of me even when I make silly decisions about being out on bad days.

Oh, the china cabinet door is still in the car and will be until my son in law comes to put it back on the cabinet.

Did a LITTLE shoveling, just a path to the house, and the porch. DSIL just drove OVER the snow in the driveway. I ordered an electric shovel, expecting it tomorrow. DD said SHE would use it.
I haven't been able to pedal on my bike - had a SHARP pain in my hip, and I don't want to do any more damage before surgery. I hope during the 2 weeks vacation I can get into doing the seated cardio and resistance bands routines...Shel

Home from church meeting, it rained on us coming home. I went with a neighbor as the road gets muddy and they have a 4x4 pickup. But it did not rain that much. It has been raining since I got home. Around three fifteen this morning I woke up to go to the bathroom and we had an earthquake. It did not last very long but you could tell it was an earthquake, shook and rattled the house.

It is a gloomy day outside but not cold. A good day to stay in and thank the Lord for my warm home and the much needed rain.

It is very wet here today, not really rain but drizzle and fog. There is no snow but would be now if it was cold enough but not really very cold. Now next week is a different story but still in the 40s so probably still not cold enough for snow. The lows at night will be in the 20s and 30s. Today it is supposed to get to 62 I hope the sun comes out. Tomorrow 58 but Monday it takes a dive to the 40s.

Tomorrow they say thunderstorms and some may be severe.

A friend invited me to the Christmas Party that the hospital I worked at for 40 years,I had a nice time. I was wondering if I should have been on the highway as it was very foggy but I made it there and back. this was last night. It was good to see those that I know that still work there. And the food was good. Of course I ate too much. Why do you ask??

Hello Friends,
Another busy day but am so pleased with all I am getting done, albeit it slowly! ;-) Patience is the key I guess! ;-) The weather was nice yesterday a bit cooler today but still not bad for Dec.

Shelley hope you don't get too much snow. My DS that really doesn't like the cold and snow will soon be moving near Amarillo and it gets more snow and cold there than any other part of the state! lol He hopes to transfer back after he has fulfilled the required amt of time the job requires of him to be there. In the mean time I get to see some of the state I have never seen before! ;-)

Hugs to all and hope Everyone has wonderful days of Hope and Joy in Christ our Savior.

Snowy here today, expected to continue into tomorrow. Not the mega dump like Buffalo got a while back, so the plows and salters can keep up with it...no snow days! I didn't get on the bike, but I MIGHT do some shoveling, especially if DSIL slacks. Shel

Aw, thanks guys! Just been busy. Didn't go to work Wed-Fri - too much pain in hip. Went to doc Fri and got a shot of cortisone (actually, wanted to on Thurs but they couldn't take me, hence the extra day.) Amazing difference! I just hope it carries me through till surgery! Meanwhile, it makes it easier to get back on the bike. Now maybe I can work off my Thanksgiving pounds before putting on the Christmas ones! Shel

Marlene hope you slept well. I send a lot of cards too and the years I don't, I always loose track of a few. I really hope to get cards out as I didn't last year. I have the pics printed that I want to put in with the letter and need to get busy and write that letter. I have been composing in my head but have to get it down on paper. This is going to be a busy couple weeks here for me. DD and I will be making candy and cookies and decorating the house and the list goes on and on. ;-)

Shelley hope you are well. You are missed!!

Really quiet day, I had one phone call from a dear friend that wanted a recipe, other than that no phone calls and no company.
It has been a dreary day outside, so I have stayed in since I got home from church meeting. I have most of my cards addressed but waiting for my sister to critique my letter, she is so good at it. I also make typos. She has already given me changes but now I want he to check the changes before I print it.
I send way too many card, guess that means I have a lot of friends??

Glad you had a good time Marlene at the chili/soup event. How is your new Great Grandson? I got to see my precious little grandson at church today. He is such a cutie and such a good sleeper! Glad Mommy and Daddy are bringing him to church! Little country churches are nice! Ours is a pretty small church too for the city anyway. The people are the greatest as they love our Lord and one another so!

Missing you Shelley! Hope all is well!

I did have a nice time at the Chile/Soup event. Several people there, some supporting t-shirts that Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State in the bedlam. But that did not happen but they wore the t-shirts anyway. Oklahoma State won for a change.

I ate too much but still slept pretty good. Now time to get ready for church..

Surprisingly our little church house looks a lot like this one. Just a little country church house.

Sounds like fun Marlene. I agree there is a lot I need to do here and am having a hard time finding spots to get it all done. At least my tree is up today but still needs to be decorated. ;-)
Making candy and cookies next week and helping DD make cake balls.

I have cards to mail, packages to wrap and things to bake. I need to get busy or it will be here and gone.

Fire Department has a chile/soup supper tonight at 6. I guess I will go as will get to see a lot of people from the community. It is by donation. Probably be cake, cookies, cheese, crackers and some raw veggies.

I have a mess of decorations out but will leave them out until I decide where to decorate and what to put away. I have a dentist appointment in the morning. Weather man says possible rain in the night but not heavy rain. My new great grandson and his Mother came to see me today. He is two weeks old and a little doll. My granddaughter will go back to work Feb.1st. She is an EMT.
Going to bed early.

I was up a little but not as much as I expected. Traveling and Thanksgiving where pounds were added.
Sun is shining today but it is very cold outside. It is in the 20s outside. I walked to the postoffice but it is just a half block of walking to and half a block back.

Well, back to work, three weeks until "winter recess" of two weeks. I think I can do that!

Not surprisingly I put on a little weight over Thanksgiving, but still within my acceptable range. Got on the bike for 25 minutes this morning. I'll work it off AGAIN in time for CHRISTMAS goodies! Shel

I am home, we had our Thanksgiving yesterday and I am still tired from riding and then cooking. It was a beautiful day in the 70s and not much wind. Today it is a lot colder and a north wind.
They all brought food but is a little tense until it all get in place and now it is over and I am ready for bed.
We had a nice wedding, large and noisy afterward. A lot of work but I am the grandma so I did not have to stay and clean up afterward. It is nice to be home. My granddaughter from England, her DH and two boys all rode home with us. A little crowded, it took three and half days to come home but we stopped a lot for the little ones.
Now the rumor is maybe two more great grands next Summer.

Happy Thanksgiving Day Everyone!!

My precious Ddil gave me a my first grandchild this week. A precious Grandson! A new generation begun!! They are with me as there are issues at their apartment being repaired. It is such a joy to have them with me and to get to hold that little guy so Mommy and Daddy can get a bit more sleep! ;-) What a joy!! I am so blessed!!

Hugs to you all!

A day of rest did me good. I left off the bike for a while too. Got back on, 15 minutes today.

Today is exceptionally mild so we took our little charges out to the playground. They had some good romping before we started to feel some sprinkles. I only had to sit down a couple of times while keeping track of them.

Wednesday we only have to go in for a half day. They're voting on if we'll go 7:30-11 or 9-12:30. I hope earlier, to finish sooner! Gotta bake some pies!

Hi Friends,
No Baby here yet but we are one day closer!! ;-) I am having a good start to the day. Have done all of my sparking (this is the last team to check in with), have started laundry, and have exercised and am almost ready to have breakfast ... thanks to DD who fixes it!!

Dear Shelley - So sorry your hip has hurt you so badly. Hope you can get sick/medical leave! Hope you get to feeling better and can enjoy your day to yourself. ;-)

Hugs Marlene! Hope you are having a great time! ;-) This time last year we were preparing for a wedding and this year their baby! ;-) So much fun!

Yesterday my hip hurt so bad it had me in tears and I had to call in to work. I think it's because the day before I had changed a boy's clothes twice, and all the extra bending over was too much. I will be so glad when I've had the surgery. Abi and I are thinking I may have to take off from work sooner to await surgery, especially if I can't perform my duties. Shel

Dear Marlene,
Thanks for checking in with us and letting know you arrived safely! Glad you had a good trip! You are such a blessing to your family! DH and I always lived far from our families and our children were always strangers to their Grandparents too, but they warmed up soon enough as they see how we respond to one another. Don't be worried, they will love you quickly!
Hope all the wedding plans go well. Weddings around major holidays are fun. Both of my married sons married right after Christmas. Since it is vacation time for many it makes attendance at the weddings better too.

We continue to wait for the new baby. ;-) That is the name of the game with most healthy babies! ;-)

Shelley hope you are warming up a bit there. We are here!

Hugs to all!

In Orlando waiting on DD and her DH and we will go to my granddaughters to help with wedding plans. We got here last night, lost an hour of time because on time zone. DGD has a lot of things she wants done yet.

We had a good trip that took two days to drive. I sleep okay just not long enough. Other DGD will come in tonight from England. Her DH and two kids. One of which I have never seen, I will be a stranger to them. One one and the other is three.

Sorry no time to read and catch up. Marlene

Welcome Back Shelley!
Still no Baby here. But we did get DS's German Shepherd yesterday. She is 5 mths and really sweet. She was quite shy at first. But has warmed up nicely. She and our own puppy now 7 mths old get a long really well. They are going to be great friends and will miss one another when DS graduates and takes her with him in 5 weeks. :-)

Glad you had a great weekend!! Sounds like a lot of fun!!

It is cold here today too. Ground was frozen this AM but it is supposed to warm up this afternoon and be warmer than it has been in a few days! ;-)

Have a great week!

The weekend was a lot of fun, being on team with old friends and making new friends. My talk went just fine. Of course, I ate more than usual, and put on a few pounds, which I am already working off. For one thing we don't have the snacks and such here at home!

Buffalo got hit pretty hard, but I'm in Rochester, and we just have a little bit of snow. It was pretty cold out this morning, 20 degrees! I dress for the weather! emoticon

I put my new great grandson's picture on my profile. One day old. His name is Jase Marshall but I won't get to see him for a couple weeks so I am thankful for the picture that my granddaughter posted on facebook. She is on there more than I am, which is a lot.

It has been a really busy weekend and I am tired.

Yesterday morning at 7:30 my granddaughter called. Her water had broke and she was on the way to the hospital, would I pick up the older kids at school at 3:30 and bring them home with me. This I did but before I got home my son called and said he did not want to leave his daughter and her DH while she was in labor so would I go get the older boy at his dad's as it was his weekend to be with his mother. Well, she was really busy trying to have a baby so brought him home with me, too after driving 30 miles to get him. We stopped at Subway and got a sandwich as it was getting pretty late. We stopped and got gas and the grocery store and came on home. No one except me seemed interested in going to bed. 9, 11 and 15 year olds. Finally everyone was down and asleep. My granddaughter finally gave birth at 6:28 pm. They sent pictures and he is pretty cute of course a great grandmother would think so. This morning I had an appointment to get my nails done so I had to take the three great grands with me, then back home. The 15 yr old stayed here at the house and I took the other two 25 miles to a birthday party for another great grandson who is also their cousin. Back home and now much later my son came and got all three and took them home with him. He will take them home tomorrow or to another grandmothers. I am so grateful that he took them, they are his grandchildren but I am trying to keep the house straight and get everything to leave early Monday morning. And did I say I am tired??

I will not get to see the new baby until I get back, I don't think they are home yet and it is supposed to snow in the morning.

Hi Ladies!
Marlene-Burr! and I thought it was cold here! When is the wedding, this Saturday? Hope you get you disk soon!

Shelley have a great time. Hope you speech goes well. Have a safe time!

Baby is just 3 days from due date. Ddil seems to be doing well. It is cold here too and she doesn't have a coat that will log around her. I am sure DS is taking a blanket to keep her warm in the car!! Haven't seen them in a week. Am sure looking forward to being well! ;-)

Eighteen, wow, that's cold! We're cold here, but in the 30's, so, the real cold hasn't begun yet.
This afternoon I have to load up my van with stuff for the retreat this weekend. I will drive to work and then leave directly after. I have to bring my own bedding, so I think I'll throw that in the van in the MORNING, after I use it tonight! Shel

It was 18 degrees this morning at 8. It has been cold all day and supposed to be colder tomorrow. This morning I went to town to get a disc that a man had made out of an old computer that I had my Family Tree on it but he was not there and would not be until 1:30. I had somewhere else to be at 1:30 but I had a couple other errands to do so I stopped at the bank and then went to the drug store to pick up a prescription. My son in law and been in the drug store picking up his medicine and asked if I had any so guess what, he picked up my prescription, too. Sort of a wasted trip but I went by my daughters, she was making the groom's cake. She was also making food that my great grandson can eat. He gets food allergy eczema when he eats some things so he is on a strict diet.He can have Fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits, chicken, and some meats. My daughter is making food that he can have and we are taking it with us so little three year old John will have something that he can eat.
I was invited to attend Athena club meeting at 1:30 at a ladies house about 4 miles from my home. It was nice the hostess had a Thanksgiving lesson about how Thanksgiving started, who started it on what day and etc. Originally it was in December but in the 1860's Abraham Lincoln declared that the last Thursday in November be a national holiday.

Then she served all sorts of foods, was good but I had to make it my evening meal as I ate way too much.

Still waiting on baby Jase to make an appearance in this world. My granddaughter spent the day in the hospital last week but was a false alarm. Sonogram said 27th but Dr. says Dec 6. He was going to induce her the 28th but decided not on a holiday weekend. Little Jase may have a mind of his own. If he does not come this week I will be gone to Florida when he arrives unless he does not come until December like the Dr. says.

I am feeling much better today, I can talk I think no one around to talk to. I got real squeaky and cough up stuff. Must have been a sinus infection but I don't think I ever ran a fever. I have roast in the oven, potatoes, carrots and an onion ready to go in soon. Jello and bananas for dessert. My son and his wife are coming for lunch. My son's birthday was the 6th. I thought about baking a cake and decided I would have cake to eat all week so decided jello was enough.

The sun is shining and fairly nice outside. A cold front is supposed to come Tuesday and be really cold with possible sleet and snow by the weekend.

We changed Princess' name to Yaddie, and she responds happily enough to it. She's adjusting very well, and it seems she loves my lap best when I'm watching TV. We decided to keep Bert - he'd be in the basement during the day, and at night when Yaddie's in her kennel, he can roam upstairs.

Wednesday morning I started out fine but soon into the morning I began to feel nauseous - didn't even like the smell of the school lunches cooking. I had to sit with one of my students in the nurse's office, as she started to throw up, and I told the teacher she might want to see about getting someone in for me - I could stay with our little girl till she was picked up, but then I would go home. I left school around noon, my son-in-law coming for me, and climbed into bed. Spent the rest of the time between the bed and the toilet, and felt a bit better after throwing up my breakfast. Stayed home yesterday and started feeling good enough to eat a little something. Back at work today. Glad it's gonna be a 4 day weekend! Shel

I got so squeaky yesterday afternoon that I could not do much more than a whisper, better today but who knows what I will be by afternoon.

Today I plan to drive to my car dealer to find out a letter I got about updating my GPS on my car. It is usually free but this one is $150.00. DD and her DH are going with me, they are busy moving things around to get ready for the England grandchildren. My SIL collects toys and has a whole room full of cars and etc. Their grandson is 3 and loves all kinds of cars, so the ones that my SIL treasures will have to go in boxes or somewhere else beside the spare bedroom. The other grandson is only one but he likes things that is older brother likes.

Ground turkey and onion on cooking, then I will add some vegetables. Trying to stay on a low calorie eating so the dress I am wearing to the wedding won't be so lumpy.

Hello Friends,
We got some rain today too. Lots of good slow rain! Was up at 5:30 this morning to get clerks to the elections. Am looking forward to going to bed early tonight. ;-)

Shelley hope Princess adjusts quickly! Sweet of you all to give her a home. I need your cat to give mine some quick lessons! ;-)

Marlene sorry you have a cold. Glad you got your yard fixed before the cold weather. Hope your cold goes away quickly.

We have to watch a sick little one the next 2 days. Praying DD and I don't catch it so we are well with the new baby comes. We are so waiting to hold this little one.

Hugs to all!

We had rain, not sure how much but the lawn got watered one last time before winter sets in. I did work in the yard and pulled up my sweet potato plants, sometime there are sweet potatoes but I did not see any,. I had to hurry as it was trying to rain and I was getting wet, probably did not help my cold.

We have a new family member - a 4 year old rat terrier named Princess, whose previous owners had to move. They brought her over and then while she was doing business outside, they slipped away. Of course poor little Princess doesn't understand, and we expect she'll be sad for a while, though she gets along with our boxer and the rest of the family. Well...actually, there is ONE family member, Bert the cat who followed Abi home, who might just be rehomed himself: he BULLIES the dogs! We think he needs to be an only pet! He's very affectionate with people. He doesn't growl or his or run from the dogs. Rather, he may rub against the boxer, and when the boxer goes to give him a friendly sniff - swat! with the claws!

Hello Friends,
Has been a busy weekend scrapbooking with friends. Then we had a close friend pass on to Eternity with Christ.

Marlene so glad to hear the puzzle is done. Nice to know your efforts still decorate the wall at DH's former business. ;-) Hope you get your gardening done. We don't get much of the promised rain either. Oh we need it so desperately! Your trip happens about the time my Grandbaby is due!

Shelley I know what you mean about cravings. I seem to crave more when I exercise. I try to have healthy alternatives but my it is easy to be my own worst enemy in the food department.

Hugs to all!

I actually lose weight, when I travel to Peru, mainly because they don't have as many tempting "goodies" (baddies!) as we do here.

I indulged in some of the grankids' Halloween candy which they shared with me. But I was craving chocolate anyway - I think I get sympathy cravings with Abi when it's that time of month for her. But now I feel better so it'll sit there for a while before I crave again. Shel

I finally finished the puzzle, I thought a couple pieces were missing but found them on the floor. I have glued a couple puzzles, I did one of an old car business and had it framed. Gave it to my DH and hung it on the wall at his car lot business, it is still hanging there.

I have piles of things everywhere that I have started and then start something else. I need to finish something. It is a little warmer here today so I may go out and work in the yard. My lime green sweet potato plant got frozen so I need to pull them up and out of the flower bed. The mums still look pretty but could probably need some water. No rain forever, they said it would rain today but I think it passed us up again.

I have two weeks before we leave so I need to get to watching my eating. I would like to lose before we leave as traveling always put pounds on me. Eat the wrong things.,

Marlene the puzzle sounds great! Do you ever glue them together? I have done that several times, especially when my children were in school and we did historical events and hung them on classroom walls. Wow! Your flag puzzle does sound hard! I only put one back in the box too. We usually do 1000 piece puzzles too. The kids purchase a puzzle mat to spread on the table to work puzzles on. It rolls up and then there are elastic straps to go around it and it can be stored away too. At Christmas time I try to find a place to keep it out and to work on it as we have time. It is fun when folks come to visit and we talk around the puzzle. I try to get it done during the holidays because if I put it away I lose interest. ;-)
A friend gave me a Disney SnowWhite and the 7 Dwarfs and their cottage in the woods. It was a hard one and took us a long time. We also had a round puzzle that was one of the new quarters. It was also double sided so if you worked the other side it was all 50 States new quarters. That side was easier to put together. ;-) Interesting not having any flat edges though !!

Hope you all have a good day!

The puzzle I am working on now is 1000 pieces, most of the ones I do are. I do several a year, some take months because I only do them when I am in the mood. This puzzle is an old time drug store with a pharmacy on one side and a soda fountain on the other. It is going to be pretty. I have done some really hard ones. One was a flag with tiny pictures of people all over it in the stripes, and in the stars, it was really hard but I got it done. My daughter and son in law help when they are here, same for them, they get started and hate to quit. I like Thomas Kincade too. I think I only started one that I decided was to hard and put it back in the box. My dearly departed brother in law made me a board with sides and felt on the bottom. You can take it through a doorway and put it under the bed to get it out of the way. My son in law made me one with sides but not felt on the bottom but it is larger because some puzzles are extra large.

Marlene you are such a busy and industrious lady! ;-) I enjoy puzzles too and my sister has been giving me one for Christmas each year lately. It is fun to work on and I am like you, I hate to stop when I am making progress. ;-) What is the picture? I love doing Thomas Kincaid winter/Christmas scenes. One of the last times she was here we were working on a sherbet pic and we just had to eat some real sherbet while doing it. Obviously it was summer not winter! ;-)

I have a dozen things going at once, well maybe not that many. I got out my suitcase to start putting things in so I won't forget things, still have two weeks to pack. I cleaned out my sewing box and tossed some things. I have enough needles to last someone's lifetime. No way will I use them all while I am living. I have the vacuum in the middle of the floor but have not even turned it on. I cut roses this morning as I wanted them inside where I can enjoy them. I made a pot of stew with turkey meat and vegetables. That is about it except I got to putting pieces in my pictures puzzle and when it is going good I hate to stop.

Morning Friends!
Shelley what is the theme of your talk? Glad you enjoy that sort of thing (at least you seem too). I am a cup of coffee, sit on the sofa kind of sharing Gal. ;-) Hope it goes well and you have a good time on the retreat!
Hope the Drs office called you back.
Hope you can find a sweet dog for company for your boxer. Is your boxer ill a lot? I have a friend that got one from a rescue 2 yrs ago and he is always sick with ear issues or UTIs or leg issues! It amazes me he is so ill and yet he is young, 5 yrs or less. She says it is because he is a boxer but I have never heard that before. He is a sweet dog but my ... expensive!!! It kept me away from getting boxer when I wanted a pup.

Have a Great day Everyone!

It actually got up to 80 yesterday, and as the afternoon wore on we got some rain - not much, just some showers that varied from heavy to light. And today it's 50-ish. Autumn in New York!

I forgot to check the voicemail to see if the ortho office called back. That's something I'll have to do when I get home today.

I only did 10 minutes on the bike this morning, but that's better than nothing.

Abi and I continue to check online for a lapdog (female, preferably already spayed) as a friend for our boxer.

Today I promise myself I will work on the talk I am to give at a retreat in 2 weeks. I just have to stay off Netflix and Facebook! emoticon Shel

We are warm here to Shelley. Was supposed to get rain but the sun is shining now and I am sure it won't rain when it looks like this. ;-)
A dear friend texted me this morning and it looks like her DH doesn't have long until he meets His Lord now. He isn't even 60 yet and has Alzheimers. So sad. But God knows best!
Hope your Dr has some better medication for you.
Have a great Tuesday!

Supposed to get to SEVENTY today. Then it'll drop to the 50's and be normal for the time of year.
Got on the bike for 20 this morning. It was an effort, to be sure! I also jotted down my ortho doc's phone number to call while at work today so I can ask about a stronger pain med till I can have surgery. If not, I'll just have to bear it. Shel

Shelley sorry you didn't get to the museum but you are right, good thing the exhibit is there awhile! Good job on the bike!!

We have errands to run today too but not getting to them very quickly! ;-) Getting other things done though.

Lovely weather here today. Hope we get the 40% chance of rain tomorrow. We need it so very badly!

Well, didn't go to the museum this Saturday - Abi wants to meet up with a friend and HER kids NEXT Saturday, so that's what we'll do. Glad the dinos will be around for a few months!

Got on the bike yesterday for 20 and this morning for 25 minutes. It's an effort to be sure!

Today I have to make a run to the store for the usual bread and milk, plus a few other things.

Hi Friends,
Hurray it is Friday!

Shelley sounds like a fun trip with the Grands!!

Marlene I need to walk too but just can't get motivated. I did good a couple weeks ago.
I agree with you, when we age we need some extra stores to fall back on. My Mom didn't and whenever she was sick she had a terrible time. She wasn't a smoker or anything just not a big eater and had a hard time gaining.

Going out to dinner tonight with friends at DH's favorite restaurant. Guess I won't ever get used to him not being with me.

Hugs to all and hope you have a good weekend!

I actually walked a mile this morning, sure made my legs and feet tired. I need to do that everyday but have to push myself. My skinny sister challenged me to a weight loss contest. She is taller than me and 40 pounds lighter. I really think she looks great, she also can not eat much at a time because her stomach and colon gives her fits. But she thinks she should lose weight. I am of the mind set that you don't want to lose too much and not have anything to fall back on if you get sick. Sounds good anyway.

Tonight is Pot luck at the one room country school house that I attended 65 years ago. Also going to have a cake walk.
emoticon emoticon emoticon
My DD made cinnamon roles and I made brownies for the cake walk. I have turkey breast in the oven to make turkey spaghetti for the pot luck. I hope I can have the will power to eat sensible.

Pretty day here today but it is supposed to be almost 90*.

Ah, Friday!
And I slept better last night. Didn't get on the bike though, to give the joints a little more healing time. But I finished another PD and have one more to do which I can probably finish this afternoon.

The animatronic dinosaurs are coming to our local science museum. I want to take the grandkids tomorrow morning before my afternoon team meeting.

Marlene, I have to be careful with how late I drink caffeine, whether coffee, tea, or cola (which I don't drink much, BUT...) or it'll keep my brain a-buzzing with thoughts instead of letting me fall asleep. Then there are times when for no apparent reason I toss and turn - when sleep evades me, I usually use the wakefulness to pray. If Satan's trying to rob me of sleep, he's going to hurt for it! emoticon Shel

Shelley I am so glad DS#1 is so available and willing to help and knows so much about home repair. He learned a lot from his Dad!! I am blessed, it saves me a lot in repair bills!!!

I know what you mean about the budget. It is tough to make ends meet but God always provides!!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Oh, no, Daddy's Girl, that's awful about the water heater problem! That's one disadvantage of home-owning, those maintenance issues when something goes wrong!

I have to get new filters for our furnace...which should also be serviced...when I have the extra money! Which is hard when other family members don't budget and I have to pick up the slack! Shel

Hello Friends!
Wow What a week! Saturday a week ago we painted the outside of the house but the morning looked like rain so we held off and did some inside repairs. Then painted in the afternoon. It looks wonderful.

Then Sunday night DD noticed the carpet was wet and upon further investigation ... the hot water heater was leaking! So DH and Ddil came and he emptied it and then came Monday and replaced it. Had to come back Wednesday as one joint was leaking. Some odd reason the sink faucet in the guest bathroom now won't work. We are still working on that problem.

Company came on Thurs and stayed until we left for church yesterday! So crazy fun!! We raised our kids together. So much fun and she knew my DH well. It is nice to visit with someone that knew him and cared about him and I don't have to explain a lot of things.

Looks like this week might be calmer! But have to get things together because my Grandbaby will be here soon and I think I am going to be very busy again! ;-)

Marlene and Shelley you too sound busy as usual! Glad you have high toilets. They do help the hips! We put on in the addition when it was built to help my parents.

Hugs to you both!

I had my SIL put in a handicap toilet for me. My hip was bothering me and it has helped. My hip is better most of the time, not sure what caused the pain.

I put in a miserable night. Even got up and got a book and read for awhile. I think that I drank coffee too late and now I am tired. I got up early because I told my neighbor I would take her to friendship meals special breakfast. But after I got dressed and called to tell her I was on my way, I got no answer. I tried several times and she never answered. She is famous for spending time at the bar nearly every night so I just can imagine that she slept in this morning. She lives alone (most of the time) so I have been worried about her. I called the bar owner to see if she partied all night but he said he did not work last night. I am thinking seriously about not taking her anymore. I did not go to the breakfast and I feel bad about it because they had it special to bring the people count up for the month. 12 miles to eat breakfast, I very seldom eat that much breakfast. Nothing going on today but that is okay, I think I will go lay down and see if I can catch a nap.

Chilly and damp here today.

I really have to call my friend and arrange to pick up the special raised potty - it'll make it easier on my hip, and then I won't have to worry about having to go when the bathroom is occupied!

Seeing more progress in my autistic student! That's always a thrill! Shel

Makes me sad, I have two bathrooms and only one me. I remember when my kids were in school and I was going to work. My DH was a farmer so he just stayed in bed until we were out of the house and then he had the bathroom all to himself.

I took my neighbor to neighboring town across the border (Kansas, I live just a few blocks from the border) for friendship meals. She says she is going to go get her driver's license next week. Then she will never be home. She is a little mentally challenged but pretty smart. She doesn't use very good judgement when it comes to men, she know how to work them for her advantage.

Nothing else going on...

I'm blessed that my older DD - the one who isn't very active on this board, Abi! - lives with me, along with her significant other and my 5 grands. Of course, at times it's a challenge - especially in the mornings when everyone vies for the bathroom - but for the most part, we get along fine! Shel

Not much going on here. My SIL came by for a cup of coffee and then on to the farm to do some work. He is trimming trees, tearing down old buildings and etc. My dearly departed DH would be so proud of the way the farms are looking.

My son was going to come this evening but has decided to come for lunch tomorrow as he will be on vacation for a few days then. I think we will have hamburger stew.,

Sorry i have been gone awhile, Kids here to paint outside of my house but it looked like rain. We did inside projects and after lunch we painted. Had weekend guests at night that needed a place to sleep.They knew we were painting and even helped. Sunday all was quiet and we were resting and noticed a water spot on the carpet. Closer investigation showed us the hot water heater was rusting through and leaking! So we spent the day replacing that yesterday. Not all done but almost so tomorrow will be more of the same!! Whew!! I am ready to have my house back in order. ;-)

Marlene so glad you are doing so well and had a good time at church meetings and at school reunion.

Shelley I am so blessed. Both of my sons have married friends children. We have all been friends for a very long time. It helps so much with the loss of my DH. I am glad they knew and loved him and don't find it hard when I speak of him. I pray when my other 2 marry if we aren't friends with the spouses' families we will become so!!

Off to get more done around here!!
Hugs to you both!!

I have been SOOOOO LAZY today!
Saturday I went to the women's breakfast, which included fun fellowship and an uplifting sermonette. Sunday I pedaled 30 minutes, watching Charles Stanley, and decided just to chill at home. And today since there was no school, I just relaxed and watched programs on Netflix - except when a student came by for about 1 1/2 hours for a little math tutoring. I will find retirement very easy to settle into! But - not for a few years yet! Shel

It is rainy and windy here but I have an appointment for a manicure. I have 12 miles to drive and need to be there by 11. So I better get busy and get to going.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your interests, but also to the interests of others.

Went to my town's alumni lunch today. School closed here in 1973 but there were a lot in attendance. They served soup and chile. A lot of the people I did not know as I did not go to school here but there were several that I did know.
