Had me a sponge bath this morning - feels so good to freshen up! I'll be going to my other god-daughter's house for lunch today. Then for dinner one of my "sons" is taking me to his uncle's polleria to meet someone shpecial in his life (accompanied by some other "sons".) This will be my last night in Lima. Shel

It's been a fun time of reunions with people I first met 10 years ago.Last evening I was sitting outside my host church during their fund raising chicken barbecue, when a group from another church - where I'd had so much fun every time I went - pulled up. They were delighted to see me, disappointed that I'd be leaving before I could speak at their church. However, the mother of one of my goddaughter's did manage to arrange a lunch date for Wed., so the pastor (her bro-in-law) said they might just have to descend upon her house while I'm there.
I haven't been using my resistance band. I get some walking though.
Take care! emoticon Shel

While I was in Pucallpa, I know I lost some weight. In the heat I didn't feel like eating a lot. But here in Lima, it's cold and damp, and you have more of an appetite - AND they FEED me, big portions. I try to control myself. At least there aren't all the tempting goodies like at home.
It's raining right now - such that you can actually hear it on the corrugated roof. Usually "rain" is just a heavy mist. Of course it's nowhere near as heavy as it is in the jungle.
I booked a flight to go back and spend my last couple weeks in Pucallpa. It's warmer, and I want to be with my fiance and his family.
Keep walking with Charlie! emoticon

Thanks so much Shel , hugs

I'm up bright and early this morning and I've had a good night sleep.
Have done housework yesterday and today, been to the park with Charlie a couple of times. Booked my mums Ruby Wedding Anniversary meal for 31st August this month so that is something to look forward to. Me and my sister Sarah are going halves on the cost of the meal and celebration cake etc. My mum is having a open house party on the Saturday for all her friends with snacks and drinks. Then Sunday its just immediate family and her best friend.
I have not really lost any considerable weight in a long time. I have bought some precision scales and i'm 18stone 4 lbs. So still larger than comfortable. Need to lose some weight.
ok chat later. love you

Yeah, you know the saying, there's no place like home. I think what I miss most is my BATHROOM. Hahaha! The basic comforts.
Had a fun birthday party last night. And no one had to get drunk!
Glad you're feeling better. I'll bet Charlie's happy to see you too! emoticon

Thanks Shel for staying in touch. I'm glad your having a break it must be doing you the world of good.

I am out of hospital now and feeling much much better. I can have medication adjustments at home. I left of my own accord but i'll tell you it's soooo good to be home again.

Sorry about the depression. It's a cycle - exercise would do you good but you don't feel like it. Try to kick your butt out the door. emoticon 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

I'm in Chiclayo now. ays are sunny and hot, nights chilly. I managed to load SME pix to my last couple of Sparkblogs. The computer is slow to load pix!
Haven't exercised yet today cuz I've been trying to load pix! Then I get all stiff from sitting in front of the computer!
I'm curious to know what I weigh, but no scale.
I have to get a charger for my batteries, or at least more batteries, for my camera!
Take care! Shel

Yeah, I expect to have better Access in Lima. I could walk to my Honey's cousin's internet cabina, but they don't want a gimpy gringa going on her own. I took a motokar by myself today, for 1 sol. You can see how much that is in YOUR currency online by looking up Exchange rates. But it's cheap. After all, it's only a few blocks! Shel

I'm on the edges of a city - convenient drive right into the city, if you really want to go there (which I don't!) In the city we have a science museum and planetarium; the George Eastman house which is the mansion of the late founder of Kodak, and is also a museum of photography (it's a really cool place to go); an art museum; the museum of play...we're near one of the Great Lakes, so there are beaches and parks and places to camp. If you want to take a longer drive within 2 hours you can reach Niagara Falls and all the sights to see around there. Not too far away is a working farm you can visit. So I like this city because it's got some of everything!

I live in North of England, UK

my bungalow is along the canal and 5 mins from a lake and park so not bad really. There's lots of places to go for coffee or pints of beer or meals. plenty of shopping centres within short distance because I am near Warrington, Widnes, Frodsham, Chester and Liverpool and not far from Manchester. Sort of in the middle. I'm not in the city its more rural and less well off not a rich area, Lol, but its ok. How about you what's it like where you guys live?

ps. I have been out with my dad today shopping and he got a haircut while I got some new bedding and little bits and bobs. Haven't took my meds yet today, have forgotton them and its 5.15pm already. I'll chat tomorrow. Kate x

I expect that while I'm in Peru I'll finally get rid of these 5-6 pounds that have been clinging to me. During the two weeks I'm with my fiancé and his family, fish is cheap, so I'll be eating a lot of THAT. Also, because it's so hot, I won't feel like eating so much. And grapefruit is CHEAP! But I won't be able to weigh myself again till I get home in September!

I didn't know we we're the same size Sam. It does suck being this size as I struggle to put my sandals on , actually they don't even fit me now my ankles and feet have swelled up. My periods have stopped for some unknown reason. I'm feeling a bit tired today. Thanks for letting me rant!
Religion it varies so much from one country to another and interpretations of Christianity are so different. Not all believe the same way. I'm sure the only important thing is to have a relationship with God and Jesus anyway and trying our best to be pleasing and honest and live by Gods word and have his holy spirit with us..
It's roasting here and i'm not surprised you have some bits you'd like to hide after 4 pregnancies, my mum has had 4 children and my grandma had 4. I have a average size family thou. Not that big and half of them have up and left moved to Australia or up North. I moved down South and to Northern Ireland but returned home to my family.

I have a headache i'm going to chill for a bit.

Have a lovely day!

I accepted Christ through a church's coffeehouse outreach. The church had been an Assembly of God, but then was non-denominational. I have belonged to non-denominational churches, and have also been a member in a Baptist and a Lutheran church. My present home church is an Assembly of God. I am evangelical, and believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit - basically that the church as seen in the book of Acts is as it should be if not more so. I steer away from using the word "religion" to describe myself, because I believe Christianity (and its root Judaism) to be different from other faiths.

I coaxed myself to pedal up to 30 minutes today again! And I'll walk to work. Unfortunately, that won't be an option with my new school assignment.

I'd been up to a 24 and now I'm between 16-18, depending on the cut. I still prefer "XL" because I like loose. Being older, there's some weight I just won't be able to lose without cosmetic surgery, which I can't afford - the excess skin from 4 pregnancies!

Thanks to you both for your advice and input.

I'm the one that's confused I haven't had my head screwed on right lately when it comes to God and Jesus and how confident am I as I was an atheist up until like four weeks ago? Lol

Glad the weather is not too hot Shel, its too hot for me still, my hair is wet at the back and I only had a shower a couple of hours ago, sigh. I'm not good with heat especially with my size. I'm a US 20 so big big. haha

I will have a look and explore bible gateway it sounds great, thanks!

When I read the Bible online, I like to use biblegateway.com - one can read parallel versions of the same scriptures. I am partial to the New International Version, myself. But of course, when I go to my bilingual church, I have a bilingual Bible!
I think I would recommend starting by knowing what Jesus said. The gospel of Matthew is a great starting place. The Old Testament has great lessons to learn from, too. For one thing, they give us insight as to WHY Christ had to come, as well as His genealogy. But knowing HIM - His character, and how He reveals the Father - I think is of greatest importance. It isn't understanding a religion, but building a relationship.

I got on the bike for 30 minutes this morning! And since my van's on the inside, I'm walking to school. Supposed to be nice today - not too hot, not too chilly.

Hi Sam, that's such great news, send my love. hugs. x

I just looked up Beth Moore but i'm not sure whether it would confuse me looking into two different religions. The bible is all I really am interested in reading.

Hey guys!~ Been gone a week or so...Mom had her liver surgery in the big city. So we have been staying there with friends. We couldn't be happier or more thankful..bc the surgeon said her surgery was great and that he got all the cancer and it is nowhere else in her body~ Praise our wonderful God~ He has answered my prayers. And believe me I have prayed more this past year for my mom than I ever have. He is so awesome.

Kate! That is fantastic that you are interested in a relationship with God. I would like to make a suggestion...If I am not offending you by butting in...You would really benefit from doing a Beth Moore bible study. I know I have. She has a fire for Jesus that is so contagious~ She is a true Godly woman and a great role model for christian women. Also, I would love to help you in any way I can so if you have any questions I will be here for you. Anytime~

Hope you all are having a great week~ Love to all~

Hi Shel~

Love,

it's been hot here today, I had a nap this afternoon and woke up sweltering in this heat. I've just had fresh strawberries and cream to cool me down and I have some water melon too and other fresh fruit and salad. I seen the doctor yesterday and she gave me stockings for my swollen ankles, told me to raise them more, exercise as much as possible and lose wait, yeah right, that's easy? NOT

So i'm just getting by. My dad came and studied the bible with me this morning which was nice of him. I have a lot of learning to do but I am interested in finding out. I was raised in religion but have not so good memories of going there because it was boring nothing to do. ugh. Now i'm 35 yrs and can learn a little better and decide for myself.

I hope you are not too hot, we are baking here, Lol

Bye for now!

It's been hot here the past couple days, but after a big thunderstorm last night things are cooling off a LITTLE bit. The old school building gets to be like an oven - except in the offices of course, where they have air conditioning, and you need a sweater!
Today after work I'm taking my van for its annual inspection. It's actually not due until the end of August, but I'm going to be away. I don't want to get a ticket for lacking the inspection sticker on the first day of school in September!

I usually don't add salt, and USUALLY don't eat a lot of salty foods. Just every now and then I really get a craving for it. Anyway, I hope the doctor can help that issue.

I went to the transfer meeting last night. There were no openings in the high schools, so I signed up for the elementary school where my DD's BF's 3 kids (my step-grands) go (and where DD is going to enroll my grandson). I'm gonna have to drive or take a bus, though. emoticon I was thinking, well, I could drive the kids...

Well, gotta get ready to proctor exams! Have a good day!

I have been prescribed water tablets, I don't really eat salty foods like bacon or crisps or add salt to food, or eat much processed food. So its not that. My periods stopped a few months ago. I have just had swollen ankles for over 2 months now and been on water tablets for a week. I see the doctor tomorrow at 3.30 pm to review my meds and will mention my swollen ankles to her then. Thanks for your interest I appreciate your advice. hugs x And yay for exercising I am going to start walking further and working my big ass off, Lol. Goodnight. x

Oh, I know a major part of the problem was that he refused to take his meds or be under a doctor's care, and as a result he really began to deteriorate and become delusional. I was able to forgive him for the whole mess. And God has used the painful experience as I minister to others who have gone through tragedies. I work at a school in the city so many of the kids have experienced violence, losing friends or family members.

Have you been prescribed a diuretic yet? My poor daughter deals with retention in a far worse way than I do, especially around "that time of month." Doesn't help that now and then we reeeally want something salty to snack on. I used to go for the olives they prepare in peru, but now I really have to forego. Too much sodium!

Still very snuffly, but i got on the bike this morning for 25 minutes, and walked to school.
Have a great day! Pet Charlie for me!

That's horrendous Shel that your step brother did that. But speaking from my own experiences of being psychotic it totally takes away and strips you of who you are and you are disorientated. I just can't believe how tragic that must have been for you. Such a shame.

I have spent most of the weekend at my parents and been relaxing or trying to. My ankles are still swollen and i'm not really peeing more. but hey ho as long as I don't know whats wrong with me i'm ok, lol , it might be nothing to worry about.

take care Shel. xox

It's Father's Day here in the USA. I lost my own father tragically in 1999 when my step-brother went psychotic and killed him and his mom and then himself. But I am blessed to have older men in my life who are like spiritual fathers, especially my soon-to-be father-in-law in Peru, who is such a dear. I'll see him in 2 weeks!

Three year olds ARE cute. Actually, I enjoyed all my kids at their various stages. Of course, adolescence was a challenge. I once heard it said and like to repeat that grandchildren are our reward for not killing our kids when they were teenagers!

I'd be happen to clarify anything for you, Katie. I belgan to believe in Christ when I was almost 18, and have grown and learned these 43 years. I also realise some people are far from Christ-like when it comes to sharing their faith. But then, I guess we can all have that tendency to "open mouth, insert foot"!

I feel really cruddy. But I'm gonna tough it out at work today and then try to get plenty of rest over the weekend. I didn't do any exercise yesterday or today except my walk to, from, and within the school. Have a great weekend!

Thanks Shel for explaining that to me. My mind is not made up I shouldn't have said that I was just frustrated. I am changing my mind from one day to the next about God and believing in resurrection etc. It is a taboo subject and a very personal one so I am grateful that you shared that with me. Thankyou!

I am going to my mums this afternoon and we are taking a trip to Middlewich to visit my brother and his wife and daughter, in their new home. My neice is only 3 yrs old and cute as a button. So I should enjoy seeing them all I don't get to see them as often as i'd like.

Yes, I do agree that it is more fulfilling having faith and hope I guess its just early days.

take care x

Well, as one who might be called fanatical...Look at it this way. It's not so much for you to "convert." They firmly believe, as i do, that this life is not all htere is. That we all have an eternal soul/spirit that due to the nature of sin leaves us separated from God, and thus, when we leave THIS life, we're doomed to eternity separated from God. That being so, it makes sense for the unredeemed to live completely for themselves, to get all they can from this life, because this is as good as it gets. However, the Christian believes that because of the greatness of God's love, He made a way for us to avoid that fate through faith in the work of Christ - Messiah - the Anointed one, the One designated to do the work of redemption. So Christ came to pay the penalty for our sin. The true believer does not just give lip service to this, but shows a changed life. One cannot have a real encounter with the living God and NOT be changed. There is a RELATIONSHIP - where one seeks to know how to please God by reading His word, But it is a process - there is growth and maturing, and that depends greatly on how much the new believer invests his life in spiritual things. There are minimalists who just want to be "saved" and to get out of any problems they find themselves in. Others bear more fruit - and the first and greatest is love. That love extends to those we know and love who haven't experienced salvation - we want them to know the same love, joy, and peace that we have come to know. And sometimes, yes,we tend to be a little fanatical about it. For myself, I am not so concerned that my younger daughter "become a Christian" - according to what she thinks a Christian is - but rather that she comes to know Christ Himself and experiences the abundant life that I have.
So, anyway, that's my take on that.

On a lighter note, ONE of our cats has been rather remiss about using the litter box. I don't know if it's Bert, our boy kitty, because for so long he'd been homeless; or if it's Angel, our girl kitty, in protest of Bert sharing the litter box. I have been keeping them in the basement until I see some improvement, lecturing them every time I go down. You know how we talk to animals!

Ahh that's terrible that your neighbours and their friends are waking you up at 11pm ?

the sun is shining again today

I've just put a wash on and done a quick tidy and walked Charlie.

I'm feeling a bit crap though because my parents are so fanatical about religion and want me to convert. It's not going to happen I've come to realise. Each to there own beliefs I say.

ok have a nice day Shel.

Upper 60's here - expect some showers later and higher temps. It's been very summery.

I have very inconsiderate neighbors with equally inconsiderate friends. My bedroom window opens above their side door. I woke from sleep to someone knocking on their door after 11 pm. and talking LOUDLY . There have been times when someone pulls in the driveway with music blaring, bass booming - again, after 11 pm, and it always blasts me awake.

"Oh, who are the people in your neighborhood? in your neighborhood - in your neigh-bor-hood..." Shel

Ever since my DH passed away in 2011, I have been on a mild diuretic for BP.I always get puffier in the heat. When I have gone from the hot jungle temps to cool, damp coast, I PEEEEEE a lot the first couple of days!

I have phone, cable, and internet - yay! Cable guy came and got us all set. A wind must have moved the tree to loosen the connections. I still haven't gotten around to renting a chainsaw. But I don't want to rent it and have DD's BF not get around to USING it. Maybe I should just leave the money with DD for the rental when he's in the mood.

Didn't "exercise" yesterday but kept myself busy, setting timer for every 20 minutes to move around. I accomplished the making of a video of my missions work, in case I can show it in my church before I leave.

Shel I sent you a message the other day sorry it hasn't appeared.

Just wanted to say hope its sorted out soon for you hun and having no tv, phone etc must be awful. Thinking of you, hugs. x

Hi Sami, hope you have an awesome weekend.

I am struggling all week but today I am going to have a banana and fruit and then a healthy dinner tonight. Last night I went to my mums and she always does dessert so it was a no diet day yesterday.

I feel a bit stressed at the moment so I just need it to stop raining so I can go for long walks with Charlie my dog.

Take care, x

The tree in back may have knocked loose our cable because yesterday afternoon all of a sudden I had no phone, no internet, no TV ("No phone, no lights, no motorcars, not a single luxury...Like Robinson Ca-Rusoe, it's primitive as can be!") So for now I'm using the school internet. Hope I'm back up on line later. Gotta have DD's BF cut up the broken tree. He and a neighbor friend said they'll do it - I just have to rent the chainsaw. That shouldn't be too expensive. At least the tree doesn't SEEM to have damaged the garage. It landed gently, since it was alreay leaning. Shel

Hey guys! Shel...So sorry about the darn tree!~ But way to go on the basement~I love to accomplish things, It feels so rewarding. Hopefully it will be pretty cheap to get that tree outta there. Kate...Hello! I am so glad that you had a good weekend!~

I am doing pretty good. We went to my parents friends house this weekend to visit and go to the
big city for moms preop appt. I ate way too much of bad foods...But mom's preop went great~ The dr. said her tumors shrunk so much that three of them are gone~ Praise our heavenly father. All the glory is his. My prayers have been answered~ She still has to have invasive liver surgery on June 11th. Please pray for her~ My sister and her beau are coming down to stay that week. I'm so glad. I miss her. She lives 5.5 hours away and we rarely get to see each other.
Today I ordered the advocare 24 day challenge package. It is a weight loss and health program. My cousin sells it and she and like 10 of her friends have done it and ALL lost weight and lots of inches. One girl lost 40lbs in 40 days~ Awesome. I can't wait to start~

Love to all~
Sam emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


I will lose weight...I will be in shape...Love diet food..Yum Yummy...Love water...Oh yum..good...good..yes...delicious...Lol...
well If you think it and say it...It will come true!!

Saturday I tackled my basement - cleared out 3 big bags of trash, did some extra washing of mildew sheets, and I've been managing to empty the bucket under the leak so that the floor is actually DRYING! (LOVE these old houses! emoticon ) I was rather achey afterwards and took a soaky bath with scented bathsalts.
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!

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!

Don't try to eat like the rest of the family!
But seriously, I know how difficult it is when you share a household and you try to eat in a way that is healthy for YOU.

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!

Hey ladies! I'm down and out right now... I've gained about 5 lbs trying to eat like the rest of my family and this proves no matter how bad I hate it that I can't eat like a normal person. I've been in a lot of pain and struggling with some stomach issues and I'm just down in the dumps! Sorry for whining. I need to suck it up and go on but it's hard when ur sickly! I could use some prayers, please.

Shel..I'll be praying u get to keep ur job for sure!!

Kate..hopefully it will quit raining for u! Where do u live?

Love,
Sam

I've been trying to lose this same 5 pounds for these last few months. Doesn't help when we have stuff like cake and ice cream in the house like we did for the holiday weekend! Then I have my granddaughter's birthday coming up June 2nd, and the twins' on the 3rd. OOG! When I go to Peru I usually manage to drop several pounds because their chocolates and goodies just aren't as good, and I eat a lot of fish and chicken!

Today I have to stop by the principal's office. One of my co-workers wonders if it has something to do with next year's assignment - whether we'll be displaced, laid off, transferred, or what. I've been with the district for 13 years now, so I have some seniority. I was hoping I could stay in this building 'cause it's so close to hom,e but I'll be glad just to maintain employment. Well...we'll see what happens! I'll let you know next chat!

Hi Shel, yes dogs are good company and so worth it, he keeps me healthy by getting me walking him three times a day. I just need to get the eating part right and cut down on fiber and bread etc. My weight is steady, the same but my goal is to lose 10 pounds by August in say ten weeks from now. Just so I look better in my new clothes. I have just set up my personalized goal board on the home page and it is so friggin funny when it says exactly what you write, hahaha. Ah well I have walked Charlie with an umbrella in one hand and a lead in the other, I looked hilarious with my bed socks still on. It is so rainy here past few days. Monday was nice but ugh rain, rain, rain ever since.
Have a lovely day Shel and I look forward to chatting with you again later. x

Aren't dogs great company?
We used to have 4 miniature poodles, all related - the first one was Schprocket. Next was his nephew Teddy. Then came Schprocket's sister Pup-Pup (same parents, differrent litters). Then there was Franky, son of Teddy and Pup-Pup.. He was the biggest at 18 pounds. Schprock and Pup were 12 pounds, and Teddy was 9 pounds tops. We joked that we had one big dog in four installments!
Now the only dog in the house is my daughter's boxer, who weighs at least 90 pounds. When, God willing, I can bring my Honey Levi up here as my husband, perhaps we will get a medium sized dog of our own, as long as there will be someone to doggy sit when we travel.

I got on the bike this morning for 30 minutes. My weight wasn't too bad, considering the food I ate over the long weekend - including ice cream!

I was off over the weekend too - due to the holiday (Memorial Day) and an extra two days off. DD's BF did cook-out, so I had Zweigle's hot dogs, and potato salad. I did, however, get on the bike yesterday, and on Saturday I did a lot of walking around.

Hey everyone. I have been off the healthy eating for like a week...so snacky and the guilt is ridiculous...But NO MORE!~ I am back on the wagon and feeling hopeful. Did my bible study and it was on hope and it really motivated me. Thank you Jesus~ He is so awesome.
Hope everyone has a great memorial day and I want to thank all our veterans out there~ Love and prayers always!

Thanks Sam!

I am off my diet yesterday and today , ate Chinese food and cake and basically a lot of junk too, haha, just enjoying not counting calories or anything for the weekend. Still haven't came on which is annoying but must be the meds. I see the psychologist on Wednesday for half an hour so she is nicer than the doctor. I have had two showers today, done loads of ironing and walked Charlie loads around the park.

Take care guys and stay in touch x

Went to the pain doctor on Friday and we have a new plan. He started me on Methadone. And is weaning me off of my oxycodone. Also I am gonna get a steroid injection in my neck on June 5 Then get my nerves re-burned on June 25. And in July he will do the other side. You can only have it done one side at a time. So I am hopeful that maybe this will all help. Fingers crossed and saying prayers bc my neck hurts so bad it is killing me.

Katieemma- That stinks your psych was a jerk. Sorry~ Here if you need a shoulder~

Hope everyone has a good weekend~ Hugs and prayers to all~

Hi, today has been horrible, headache, not come on period this week either. Time before last I was without a period for 5 months so it could be the meds. I dunno. Seen the psychiatrist and psychologist today kind of awful, over an hour late waiting for the appointment and then he had no time for me. I don't understand him either. I feel like I just want to be left alone sick of this crap.
Tomorrow my dad retires its his last shift cleaning so I'm going round to there's for a Chinese meal, can't wait, had a couple of beers tonight and going to go bed now its like 10 o'clock. i'm knackered.chat tomorrow. bye for now.

My daughter's' boxer is a big ol' baby. Every now and then he'll whine for attention - and try to climb on a lap. He knows better than to try to get on MY lap, but he'll go for "mommy." The thing is, he'll bark and fuss to go out, but not to come back in. So sometimes we forget he's out there. I think it's because he'd been neglected as a pup and so kind of thinks, "what's the point?" He'll just flop on the back porch and wait, whatever the weather, until someone says, "Hey, where's Cashy?" and thinks to look. I hate when people abuse or neglect animals. Both our boxers were rescued.
It was gorgeous here yesterday too. But today we have some thunder showers and it's a bit cooler. I alreadyput in my 30 minutes on the bike. Hurray for me! ANd I'm in for a 4 day weekend!
Have a great day. Enjoy your gardening!

Hi Shel,

yesterday (Wed) was gorgeous weather and I went to the garden centre and bought a little plant and some gardening gloves. I also got some glasses for reading from the optitions so that was cool. My dad said he will help with mowing the lawn when it arrives. Nope I didn't know gas ones stalled I thought they we're best for cutting longer grass, ugh

I'm going to have to leave it here the dog is all over me cos he hasn't been walked yet, lmao, I will have to walk him in the rain with a brolly up. haha


chat later,
Kate x

I have an electric mower. The cord can sometimes be a pain to flip out of the way, but it's too hard for me to start up those gas ones. We had one once - I had sent my DH and DS to the store to get a new mower, and DS talked DH into the gas one, saying he would help start it up - but then he was never around. Once DH and I took turns trying to start it, and finally managed after about 30 pulls between us! So, yeah - electric it is! Also, you know how if the grass is really thick and damp it can stall a gas mower - not so electric.
I also have a little push mower which I've used occasionally - I like the whirring sound of the blades. But the electric gives a closer shave.
DD mowed yesterday, which is good since we're expecting rain the next few days.
I got on the bike for 30 minutes this morning!
Here's to healthy choices for both of us! Have a good day and give Charlie a pat for me.

Hi Shel, how are you today?

I have been tired, the lawn needs mowing desperately but the lawn mower broke last summer so I've bought a new one a petrol mower quite a decent one I think. Either myself or someone will give it a go when it arrives.

Tomorrow I am going out for a coffee with a support worker and then out with my dad to the garden centre. but it has rained a lot today so i'm thinking it will probably do the same tomorrow.

Have a lovely evening, take care, Kate x

Last night my daughter suddenly remembered that I might be needed to testify at a court hearing for her BF, so I had to call my supervisor and let her know I wouldn't be going in to work today. Ended up NOT being needed, but at least I was prayer support. The accuser bounced - apparently couldn't tell the truth on the stand. So a warrant is out for her arrest and she'll HAVE to go to court on Thurs. But now we know I won't be needed. At least I can use one of my sick or personal days.
The weather is NICE today. DD said she'll try to get the lawn mowed again, but she also wants to do some "angry cleaning." The accuser is the mother of 3 of her BF's other kids, of whom he now has custody. It's a regular soap opera! Or like one of those "court" shows. Anyway...the "baby mama" has caused a lot of problems with her false accusations. So, now DD wants to get some anger out by cleaning.
I didn't get on my bike yet. I hope I can talk myself into it! First thing in the morning is usually best for me - I can get on it before my body knows what I'm doing! emoticon

busy, busy, busy then but Friday and Monday off are good.. It is bank holiday Monday here in England too so everyone is off. Hopefully the weather will be nice.

I feel a bit better now than I did at the weekend and i'm getting on with the housework this morning. I may go and see my mum later if she wants me to. It's difficult between me and my parents sometimes because they have such busy lives with their religious commitments etc. I am one of four so they also have grandkids and friends. Unlike me who barely has anyone to talk to. Must stay positive thou I mustn't get depressed about it.

have a good day at work Shel. x

I haven't checked the basement sink lately - usually DD is the one who goes down there to do laundry. At least the water in the back yard has had a chance to sink down.

I got on the bike yesterday and this morning, 30 minutes each time. Back on track!

Ended up not playing Scrabble yesterday - rather, one of the "girls" was home sick, so the other two of us helped the 3rd with some little jobs around the house, putting up curtain rods, screwing on switch- and outlet plates, after first enjoying a nice lunch together. I tried calling my fiancé later, but he wasn't home. I had a nice little chat with his mum though.

Back to work today. This will be a 4 day week - we'll have Friday off, and then next Monday too! (Memorial Day).

oh what a relief the grass was cut before all that rain. It sounds like you have a nice evening planned! Shame about the leak, ugh. Have you got it fixed now?

Today is really sunny again over 20 degrees celcius emoticon

I really am going to try this week to lose something, anything, Lol, I slept well last night and all being well I can go for a long walk with Charlie, I walk him usually three times a day anyway but a good walk around the park would be good for both. I have maintained this week so have to really push myself to lose. My mum says I've been eating too much bread which is why I've not lost anything past couple of weeks. ugh. I've just finished cleaning all the floors in the bungalow and they are drying then I will go walk Charlie.

Have a smashing weekend, take care x

I have been over my calories the past few days. AND I haven't gotten on my bike. The rainy weather is making me drowsy. I'll get back on track though.
This morning just before leaving for school I heard a splashy noise coming up from the basement. i went to check it out, and the sink into which the washing machine drains was overflowing. I couldn't figure out why - probably the drain is clogged from accumulated lint. ANyway I dumped a couple buckets full into the drain hole in the floor. We always get seepage when there's a lot of rain, and there's been a lot since last night - there's a standing pond in our back yard now! I'm so glad my daughter mowed the lawn before the rain started, otherwise it would have taken so long for it to dry enough to cut, and then it would be even longer.
Tonight is a women's fellowship meeting at the home of one of the ladies from church. I'm looking forward to going. I'll ask my DD if she wants to join me and get away from all the kids - have some adult company! She knows enough Spanish, too.
Have a great weekend!

I have just been to the garden centre today for a hanging basket to put in the back yard, it is large with white flowers draping from it, really pretty and not bad only 12.99
I've washed and ironed today too and walked Charlie.
Went a bit over my calories, oops, can do better, weight isn't shifting and it's hard to stay focused. But i'm bringing my exercise bike out of the cupboard tomorrow and dusting it off. I could probably use that for a bit and do weights every couple of days.


My two nephews have autistic spectrum disorder, the youngest is 10 yrs next month and can barely read or write, he is in special school. The other one is 13 yrs and just in high school he is really coming along in leaps and bounds. Memory is good and is becoming more like his dad. I just hope the youngest catches up soon. It makes me sad to think how vulnerable he is. He is very obsessive with things and will shred lots of paper and things like that, collects things and keeps them under his bed,, Lol, Ahh, I will prob just give him some sweets and money for his birthday he likes dvd games. They are both quite shy to begin with and then come out of themselves a bit after an hour being quiet. haha

night Shel, take care x

My son will be 31 in August.
Good news, though - my daughter was chatting with his ex-wife on line. He'd apparently contacted her - he made hhis way to the veterans' group home. So at least he got into some shelter. When my daughter was younger I had to make her leave - with her baby girl - because she was making things difficult with my two younger dependent kids. She said she was angry at first, but realizes she had some growing up to do. But yeah, she spent some time in a shelter, too. Well, now I have FIVE children whose well-being must be considered, and it's easier to relocate one adult than an entire family.
My daughter thinks her son has autism - or, as they're saying now, autism-spectrum disorder, because the symptoms can vary so. He's a smart kid, but very immature. He really fixates on certain things - right now it's TIV's (Tornado Intercept Vehicles)! He's also very affectionate. I have no problem with that!

Hi Shel,
sorry to hear about your son.
Today has been warm all day, no rain. I went out for a couple of hours. I'm just chilling now to music and then will walk Charlie around the block in a bit.
I weighed myself this morning and it was so frustrating that the scales haven't moved in like two weeks and there not broke, Lol, just not doing enough exercise I guess?
How old is your son?
I have two brothers, one has just come back from Turkey and Istanbul last Sunday and I was worried about him going there because I know of a few people who died on coach trips out there. My other brother is in Italy with his wife and little 3 yr old daughter so I bet they are lapping up the sunshine.
My sister is a year and a half older than me, I seen her today in town while I was out. Her 14 yr old daughter won't go to school and hasn't been properly since Sept last year. She has two other sons, both are autistic but the youngest is more severe.
anyway have a good evening and let me know how you all are. ps. I couldn't travel abroad again, I've only been once and I didn't like the aeroplane. I will stick to going local places, I couldn't face travelling too far again. I'm not adventurous as I used to be.

We had some thunderstorms during the night. It cooled things off a bit - it was so warm I was sleeping in my birthday suit. I like the sound of the rain. When I am in Peru many of the homes I stay at have corrugated steel roofs and you can hear the rain even louder. It can drown out a conversation!
I had to make my son leave yesterday - he has some mental health issues that were affecting the rest of the family. It was so hard, but home should be a refuge. At least the weather is better. I'm hoping he went to the Veterans' Outreach center - but he probably went to see if he could stay with some friends - not that he has any real FRIENDS. More like associates, through his music. I let him keep my trike so he'd have mobility - told him he could maybe trade it in for a bike or sell it. SIGH. It was hard sleeping last night between the heat and concern for him. Shel

thanks for the link, I could probably do 5 minutes of weights tonight before bed and then increase it a little.
I am worried if I have a heart condition but theres no way of knowing until I see the doctor again in ten weeks from now, ugh, so I just have to try and relax. I always feel anxious I am a very anxious person.
I think it's good when people have strong beliefs but I personally have been through a religion growing up in it and I didn't enjoy it really so I no longer have that. Sometimes I do miss it very occasionally. I'm happy for you.
Tomorrow is a busy day so I had best get an early night, i'm just going out with my support worker and then with my dad shopping in the afternoon.

goodnight take care. x

I have found some great workout videos on Spark - you just go to the heading "Articles and Videos" and click on videos on the drop down menu. I use this one for weights - www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-
de
tail.asp?video=39
It's only 9 minutes, and you can do it seated. I've used their other4 seated workouts - it changes up my routine. The resistance band one really gets me working up a sweat!
When I was about 5, I was on the couch and my Mom had put a cigarette out next to me - but it wasn't quite out. When she left the room I gave it a try, and it tasted so nasty it wasn't a temptation. Then as a teenager when my friends were all smoking, I tried again. Nope. Just didn't taste good enough! However, when I was in high school and friends offered marijuana I gave that a try and it wasn't as bad and I liked the effect. Never went out of my way to get any - if friends wanted to share, I partook, and never as I see kids doing these days, coming to school high, stinking up the loos. But when I accepted Christ, I figured He probably wouldn't want me doing that, so I stopped. He's been enough for me ever since!

Hi Shel, I smoke 40 a day. When I was in hospital they put me on strong meds and it affected my heart so today I had an echocardiogram it was uncomfortable and I don't get any results until I see the cardiologist again in ten weeks which sucks. Stupid meds and im not on those ones now.

I spent some time with my mum today which was good. Im going shopping for mainly food in a bit. I have been pretty good eating very healthy for over two weeks now and I do have weights I just hardly use them I forget to, haha. I still walk Charlie 3 times a day thou.

and yep we gotta die of something. My granddad died at 85 yrs of lung cancer, he had quit years prior and only smoked a few a day unlike me. I love smoking thou, ugh, I know its a gross thing to do.

have a good evening.

Yeah, we're going to die of SOMETHING. But while we live, if we make healthier choices, we can enjoy the days we have. My DD occasionally asks me for money for cigarettes for when she's super stressed - after all, she has the responsibility of not only her own 2 kids but her BF's 3. He does SOME but she takes most of the burden - just like a Mom! And then sometimes my son causes stress. So, much as I hate to, I do occasioanlly provide for her fags. My mom smoked like a chimney - but she lasted to 80 years. She was skinny as a toothpick. I've always been the "fat" one (not really FAT fat, but certainly overweight.) Really, since joining Spark, I've been much more active physically than I ever was in my younger days. So, you have youth in your favor to get the weight under control. You might consider investing in some weights to do some strength exercises.
We're in for some summery weather this week - woo-hoo! Shel

Yep, Lol, it is ironic.

The cardio appointment went well, my ECG was normal today and blood pressure fine. Doctor examined me and said just to be on the safe side she will have a scan done of my heart to check the arteries etc but she isn't concerned except that I smoke a lot which can lead to heart disease and lung cancer. Gotta die of something I guess. I may try to quit smoking in two months if I can't shift anymore of this weight. It's coming off so slowly when it went on really quickly. This week I have been eating less, exercising but weight is barely moving. I'll shower tomorrow and weigh in as usual.
I didn't know you had those things wrong in the past, shame you are in pain. My mum has arthritis too and lives on pain killers for her back etc. She has just had a knee op.
I've been asleep all day I was very tired after being up all night. Take care and nice chatting with you Shel. x

Ironic isn't it? Like, you want to die on your OWN terms! I think depression can affect other areas of health. At least there is the technology to find out what's wrong, if anything.
Some years ago I had this pain in my chest that was unlike any I'd ever had, so I went to emergency. They had me do a stress test on the treadmill, and said my heart was fine, in fact, the exercise would be great for it. It was my gall bladder. I had it removed a year later. After my DH passed away my BP was high enough that the doctor started me on a med, a mild diuretic, and it's been controlled ever since. I'd LIKE to get my weight down so I can stop taking the med. I also take a prescription NSAID for the arthritis pain/inflammation, cause aspirin or ibuprofen just wasn't doing it for me. This fall I think I'll talk to the orthopedic doc about checking inito my metal allergy to see if I may be able to have joint replacement after all. It would be nice to walk without pain.

Anyway, these bodies don't last forever. In Christ Ihave the assurance that I'll trade this one in for a glorified one. My DH would say "I need a body transplant" - and I'd reply, "That's what heaven is for."
