I've blogged before and don't get invites from it.

I have gotten some invites that I have no idea where they got my name but I usually just do nothing.

Oh Steph, I am so sorry to hear that!! Pray it will be a short stay this time!

Annie, I don't blog often and I love it that the Ninjas allow us to just post on our own team rather than blog if we prefer. But when I have blogged, I've gotten "likes", comments, was even voted a motivator of the day one time, but no - haven't been invited to other teams as a result of it. And absolutely don't feel any obligation to join if you don't want to! Just say "thanks but no thanks!.

Had an awesome day at the zoo. It was around 70 and it was not crowded at all. Walked for 4 hours! I forgot my pedometer though, dang it!

You're right Joyce I never thought of that but I do have chatting buddies wherever I go.

This is an old friend who I met while camping back in the early 70's. Which used to see each other a couple of times during the summer when we came up here camping. Now she comes to the motel and picks me up almost every day that I am here. We find lots to talk about.

Jerry went fishing this morning but didn't catch any. He had fun anyway.

Good Morning All....

Wow, Barb, you were sure lucky no more damage was done! But you sure didn't need more work, did you?

Hi Gwyn!

VMom, glad you checked in - this is definitely a great place to be for encouragement!

Annie, what are you up to today??

Merri, we're in for some wonderful weather here, too.

Peggy, enjoy your visit - it's so awesome you have such great chatting buddies wherever you go!

Got up to a gorgeous day! Love fall weather! Andrea is off today which hardly EVER happens on any day but Monday, so we're being spontaneous and heading to the zoo in Cleveland. When we got up I asked Andy "Want to go to the zoo?" Usually his first response to anything unexpected is no - LOL He surprised me and said "I guess we could" - so, soon as everyone has breakfast, we're off. Get lots of walking in there! :-) We don't go on Mondays because that is "free day" for all Cuyahoga County residents and it's usually so crowded we try to avoid that.

So, will check back in late afternoon. Have a great day everyone!!

Barb sorry for all the work that was provided by Mother Nature, as if you needed more work.

My friend who lives in Lake Placid is going to pick me up at 9:30 and we'll go back to her house and have coffee and a chat. I always bring my projects with me too.

Good morning to all of my Sparkler friends out there:

The weather man is saying we are in for one sunny week. Even for the weekend.

We started taking some of the tomato plants out yesterday. Some of the flowers that are going to sleep too. I hate to see this time of year and everything just wilting away so fast..

Not much going on here this week.

Barb, So sorry to hear about all of the damage the tree did too. But, like you did say tho, it could have been so much worse. I bet it was a good thing you didn't see the big tree when you looked out of the window, or you may have been out there during the night cleaning it all up instead...Right??

Good middle of the night ... not sleeping and starting to fret so thought a check in with SPARK would help. It has. Thanks for your notes -- If it's going to be, it's up to me ... but I know I cannot do it alone.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Woke up to a nasty surprise tonight. I remember waking up to a noise like a big bang and peaking out the window to see if a big limb broke or something, then I fell back asleep until 5pm. Well I guess I should have looked further, a major limb from a 200+ yo tree broke about 3-3.5 feet in diameter. It took out the electric and phone lines from the house and covered most of the driveway. Lucklly I had just moved the tractor to a different spot and it missed the truck by about 2 feet and only a small limb fell on the manure spreader. I pruned up a few limbs so I could get out of the yard and did chores and packed my lunch. By that time the electric company was there with two trucks and a bucket truck to fix the electric line, and I had to leave for work. I called home figuring if the phone picked up then they must be both working since it plugs in and the answering machine came on so I just need to deal with about 4 cords of wood and lots of branches when I get home. emoticon

It's 60 here now. Got a nice walk in, but did wear a jacket. I love fall, the leaves are starting to change. Hoping we'll see full color at Niagara Falls when we go.

Definitely rested up today Trudy and it really feels good! Been awhile since I've really had a down day!

Trudy, I remember watching Roger Ebert - how neat that you have a "connection" - enjoy the documentary.

We made it to Lake Placid, it is just after 2:30 and it is 43 degrees. Brr I'm not in Florida for sure.

The colors of the leaves are great though. I have lots of projects with me to work on.

Hi all!!
We're having beautiful fall weather this week. Today the high is 68....maybe 80 on Friday and Sat. Can't ask for better.
I really got the house cleaned today. Dusted the walls, took stuff off the counters and washed them. Plus the usual things you do to clean. It feels better. Funny how that goes!!! LOL!
I'm going to see a documentary about Roger Ebert (the film critic) tonight. He grew up here and my husband went to grade school with him. He was the editor of the student newspaper when he went to the University of IL. He had quite an interesting life. I'm sure the documentary will be good.
Did any of you catch Ree Drumond on TV yesterday? She made a braised pot roast. It looked so good. I went and got a chuck roast and made it last night. It was so good.
No big plans this week. I hope you all get rested up and find peace. It's a beautiful Fall.
Enjoy it and renew.

Had a great weekend! What beautiful weather. Unfortunately, Hubby has a bad cold. 8o(
And tomorrow is colonoscopy day for me- oh joy...

Victoria- I hear you on not spending your retirement as you had planned - My retirement plans have fallen by the wayside, too - But I'm learning to just be thankful and content for the way things are. You do need to make time for yourself to pursue some of your own goals--In fact, when I found out that I would need to keep working instead of retiring when I had planned- I signed up for a 4 year art course I had been wanting to take-- to take the sting out of continuing to work. Even though, like you, there are a million demands on my time--I insist on 30 minutes to 45 minutes each day to work on my artwork- and you'd be amazed at what you can accomplish on any goal in just 30 minutes a day - There are weeks I voluntarily give up my 30 minutes in the art studio and only actually work on art 3-4 days a week- but then it's my idea to do that so I don't mind.

Definitely much cooler here today too, Annie! I think we'll be in the 40's overnight again but I think back to 70 by the weekend.

That's too bad everyone's too busy to get together Gwyn, I can see why it would be frustrating.

I actually slept in today, I was SO tired last night! Don't have Aiyden today so I took advantage of it! Probably sort through more clothes today, putting away summer stuff, etc.

Hang in there Victoria - things will get better! We'll all help you battle the depression and weight. Sorry about the pain!

Gwyn, Peggy is exactly right - talk as much or as little as you like. We all just enjoy getting to know each other this way. It's amazing some of the strong friendship bonds that have been formed on Spark and I've been blessed to meet over a dozen of my Spark friends in person. (Peggy included).

Annie, it was a lot warmer here than I expected, but the chilly weather is supposed to hit tomorrow. The winds are really strong right now.

I am REALLY tired, was on my feet from 11 AM till 5 PM helping at my nephew's memorial service. My DD, SIL, one niece and I manned the kitchen duties and cleanup. Everything went off really well. After the service they took his ashes on his Harley with his son and wife and all his biker buddies went on one last ride with him to a favorite hangout of theirs. DD and SIL went with them. It was something he would have loved! Felt badly I didn't get to visit with any of the family, but I had volunteered to do what I did. There's a family pig roast next weekend, so I can visit then.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Well, the drywall sanding is done and I have unearthed my computer. Between cooking, cleaning and child care (I'm a grandma) I don't seem to have much of a life. We now have to clean, clean, clean -- sunny so yard work is needed -- the 'kids' are working at the renovation so I spend a lot of time just keeping up the house ... not what I planned for retirement.

That said, the end is in sight and I am hoping for a little structure in the future.

Still struggling with depression, still dealing with chronic pain ... still 180 pounds ...

Woke to thunder this morning, but it's cleared out now.

Peggy, you sure had a full day yesterday!!

Merri, enjoy the picnic.

Had a good time at the winery last night. We were sad to hear the Hatrick Band is apparently disbanding at the end of this year. Seems every time we find a band we really enjoy, this happens. :-(

Up bright and early and have the food on for the memorial service later. Have to be at the golf course facility at 11 to help set things up. I'll work in the kitchen (surprised?) to help get the meal served at 1. The service is at 3. Then home to CRASH AND BURN.

Gwyn, I'm not much of a phone person. I think a lot of it is that my jobs involved answering the phone ALL the time along with the rest of my responsibilities. I enjoy posting because I can do it in between other things and not have to drop everything when the phone rings. Especially with keeping up with my GGS. I talk to both my daughters on the phone almost daily, but other than that, I love chatting with my friends here.

Have a great day everyone!

We have a church picnic here today. They are calling for some rain, but earlier this morning.

We have a nice roast in the slow cooker for later today.

I think I would rather talk on this site instead of the phone. This way I can see what I want to say and do it when I have a chance. It seems like the phone will ring right when I start something I have to get done...

Hope everyone has a nice Sunday...Enjoy!!

I think I am the odd ball. All of you write so much -- and the same with my friends. they all write so much in e-mails. Me--I am a talker. I can talk on the phone or in person all day long -- but e-mails, to me, are for business purposes. And things like message boards are just to keep in contact. guess I am the odd one

When we got to Adin's he took us up in the woods to show us his new fort that he built out of pallets and pieces of wood.

We spent an hour at Adin's soccer game. Then we came back to his house and I heating up the chicken soup that Dave had made for us while Adin got a shower.

He got his own lunch a yogurt and ham and then he continued to eat for the rest of the day.

We watched some scenes on the computer of the movie Monsters and Aliens and then we watched the movie. It was pretty cute.

After the movie we went outside and wandered around the yard for a while. Jodi and Dave got back and we had some cheesecake from the freezer. It was yummy.

Then Adin said want to go over by the pond so I went over there with him He was riding on his quad bringing me on paths thru the bushes. We had a great time.

After we got home I went over to my sister Mary's for a cup of coffee. She said I must really like to visit people.

Our DS is 43 and he has been sober for 4 yrs now.. he hit his {bottom} his girlfriend left him,, he had a good job ,, which he made it to everyday,, but drank up all his $$,, lost his place, ended up living in a motel,, and he said NO more of this.. we are very proud of him,, his girlfriend came back,, all is good..

Sounds like you had a productive day Barb, but glad you also took some down time to just relax and visit with friends! I never did anything with plums. You must have quite an orchard there! There's an orchard a couple miles from here I'd like to get to. Usually they have a lot of wonderful peaches, but I don't think this year was a very good crop. They have lots of apples though. Glad your brother at least has plans to help with the parents, although it does sound like your Mom isn't doing too well. That has to be so hard! It's sad what drinking can do to a person. My DD's ex is my DH's brother and drinking sure ruined his life. He couldn't hold a job, let it control his life. Didn't pay support for Andrea and Austin and lost his driver's license so he signed off to let DD's current husband adopt them so he didn't have to pay anymore. Pretty sad!

I tried to get caught up on all the fruit stuff yesterday but it just didn't happen, all I ended up doing was picking another 2 bushels of 3 different kinds of plums lol. I got my tomatoes peeled, garlic and peppers roasted and peeled and ready to make some roasted garlic and pepper pasta sauce today. I will also make a batch of spaghetti sauce for my Dad who can't do without his spaghetti! Then I am going to can and dry some plums, I want to make some plum sauce to can, and another batch of plum preserves.
I took some down time and visited a couple of friends yesterday and just sat around and talked for a while. I know I had a lot to do but it was nice to just visit for a while.
The frost was heavy, and did in all the squash in the garden, I think I am going to wait a few days to pick them up so they can dry good. I covered the boxes in the courtyard and they are all ok along with the huge cherry tomatoes, and the peppers.
I have two brothers, one lives in MA and only comes up at Christmas, he has two girls, and a very busy job. My older brother by one year lives in Island Falls the same town my parents do, but he, in the last 10 years or so has gotten into a lot of drinking so he is not really much help with my parents. It is sad to see how much he has changed in personality over that time. He even ended up down at EMMC for two weeks because he went into A-Fib. He really doesn't remember any of that, they had to go in with an electrode to shock his heart back into regular rhythm. But they first had to dry him out for several days. My parents don't acknowledge that he drinks too much at all, it is not like he is drunk but drinks steady, always having a beer or glass of wine in his hands. My younger brother wanted to move my parents down to mass, but his house is small. He is building on a family room and a couple of rooms for my parents but with all the delays it hasn't even gotten started yet. I am not sure my mother is going to make it to move down there, she is so frail, and mostly just sleeps. I am also not sure my bother has thought this out well, both Mike and his wife have jobs and the kids do all kinds of sports so they are gone all day and sometimes late with the kids at soccer or basketball. Guess it will work out, what will be will be, I am glad he is taking some action as my house would be totally unsuited for elderly people as the bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are steep and not nice, not to mention I really can't afford to heat my house at a very high temp, when I leave at night to go to work I leave my temp on 45 in the winter. So his house is the best choice .
I guess I should get up and at em, lots to do today and back to work tomorrow, the plums are calling!

Good morning gals.....

Glad you had a good birthday Roz and you just keep on celebrating!!! Party on.......

Hi Gwyn!

Merri, that person is truly a cruel one! She must be a pretty miserable soul to be so hateful. Goodness, I'm 5'2 and if I weighed 130 I'd be jumping for joy! Maybe she thinks she's funny (adding the LOL) but I'd sure be offended!

Oh my, I just seen where this darn troll is after one of our members on the 50 site again...What is wrong with some people anyway? Here is what she wrote:

Ronlin77, You still look pretty chubby to me. 139# does not mean much if you are are short. My goodness, I am 5' 8" and weigh 130. Am I as chubby as you? You are making me feeling fat! LOL! May need to work a bit at getting that chub off?

Oh my goodness, we have had so many of our friends passing away in about a week and a half.
First is was the younger neighbor gal who was only 47. They said it was a brain aneurysm.
Than the man who lives just around the corner and he was only 51..Heart attack..
Than the young 33 year old in a house fire
Than one couple we would see a lot at the Golden Corral..He was 86 tho.
Than our buddy who we had breakfast with for years..He was 85.
Now the man who cut our hair at times..He had bladder cancer
And last the man who was always there to fix our DS's trumpet...
Gosh, we might as well just stay in our dress clothes to be able to go to all of these services....

We tried to go to the one for our neighbor that was only 47 and we went there twice and there were lines I bet one block or longer at all times. Her DD was 25 and her twin boys 20. So, I would think a lot of the people standing in line were friends of her kids too. We will see them in church tonight to say our condolences....

My goodness, I lost this thread! How did that happen??? I know the problem is that I have two "Daily Chit Chat" threads and sometimes I delete the wrong notice in my emails. Oooops.

Liz, that condo sounds perfect for you! I know Andy and I plan to move from here next spring and go back to the apartments in Garrettsville where we lived before we bought this place. GS and a couple of his buddies want to move in here. He's the one who will buy this house as soon as he can. He'll still let our foster son have his space and Andrea will stay, too, unless she decides to go back to her Mom's when we move. Her Mom lives in the same apts. - she has NO desire to own a home. Well, she OWNS this one now, but it's only temporary - guess I should say she has no desire to live in her own house. She likes the freedom of the apt. complex. Something breaks, call maintenance, and no yard work. LOL

Trudy, my daughter keeps telling me how many Fridays there are till Christmas! I can't believe how close it's actually getting.

Annie, sounds like you're keeping busy.

Peggy, I was thinking about you and Kathy and wishing I was there! :-(

Merri, that's a shame you don't see your DD more. I don't always see mine, but I talk to them on the phone at least 5 days a week.

We had Aiyden today 8-4. There's a new manager at the McD's and she's actually getting decent hours now for a change.

I think tomorrow night we'll go up to the winery at Geneva on the Lake and hear a band. They're the ones who played here for our July 4th party. Sunday I have to make kielbasa/kraut/gnocchi and cheesy hashbrown potatoes for a memorial dinner and service. It's for my niece's husband who passed away a few weeks ago.

Steph, hope Micki feels better really fast. I can't even imagine how frustrated she must be having the fevers return! :-(

Awww, bless your Dad's heart trying to cook like that. And bless you for being there for your parents Barb.

OK - that's all I remember - so will say goodnight and talk to you all tomorrow....if I don't lose you again. LOL

Thanks for what you are doing...

I have helped with the back packs here on our peninsula.. but it is local kids..

Annie - Kids Against Hunger is a humanitarian food-aid organization, which specializes in feeding starving children in the U. S. and all over the world. The food they send is especially designed to take those who are nearly dead from starvation back to health. They aren't affiliated with any particular church; but we (Presbyterian church) sponsor 3 or 4 "lines" of volunteers to pack food once a year. We pay for the food that is packed "per line", (which is a special diet to help people who have been starving get back to normal). Our mission committee does fundraising to pay for 2 of the lines, our congregation donates for one and there is a local Optimist club that pays for the 4th. The Kids Against Hunger program sends the food to the people who need it.

We do a "Backpack" program for local kids, too - the local school provides backpacks to kids on Friday that have meals and nutritional snacks to get the kids through the weekend if they don't have food at home. Some of the kids -the school breakfast and lunch are their main meals, so they need something for over the weekend.

One story in the documentary was about a little 5 year old boy. The boy was really sick. Had arthritis in both ankles ...it moved up to his neck and his eyes. Doctors couldn't do much. They had him on steroids and other things....it was so hard. His mom was sharing how difficult it was watching her son going from a little boy running around to one who wouldn't even walk.

So she started giving him "juice". At first it was more fruits and just a few veggies but as he got use to drinking it...she added more and more veggies (and he ate like he always did..she just added veggie juice to what he was doing).

The report at the end of the movie....the doctors took the boy off ALL medicine. His arthritis was GONE..and we could see him running around playing football with his friends. He was like 6 years old by then.

So JUICE does make a difference!!!

Went to see a Premier last night: Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead part 2

It was really cool....to see these people 6 years after the first movie.
And to find out....

#1. Eat more Fruits and Veggies (Micronutrients).
#2. It's all about Community

The guys that were alone....ended up going back to the "old way of eating"..when they got stressed and didn't have people around them.....

Pretty amazing stuff!!!

So I'm thankful for all of you...When I'm stressed out...you're all there for me.!!!
THANKS

Good morning everyone!!
Glorious day here. Absolutely beautiful!! The kind of day that makes you sing!! LOL!!
I'm going to a nursery with a friend and get some mums and then we'll go to lunch. This afternoon I'll work out side. I need to get the yard ready for winter. Since I have two trips this fall I don't want to leave the yard work and then not get it done!!
It's hard to believe fall is here on Monday. Yesterday at the Y I almost passed out....I saw a sign that said....Relax, Christmas is only 98 days away!! What???!! Surely not!!! emoticon
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
Grace and JoAnn how are you two doing with the heavy rain in the southwest? I know AZ is getting it, haven't heard much about NM. I hope you're both safe.

Happy Friday!

Another day spent working at the day job and then home to cook dinner, clean up, then frame art for the art show in October. Good way to ward off snacking in the evening!

Steph- I'm so happy for the good report on Micki and Marilyn - who I have been praying for--I'm sure many on this list have also been praying.

Liz- so glad you have a nice over 50s condo to move to - assisted living is not a good place for you if you can take care of yourself.

Barb- I understand the dementia problems you are faced with your mom- my father took care of my mother who had strokes, then he developed Alzheimer's (His parents, my gps, had Alzheimer's and all but 2 of his siblings had it. They all live to be well over 90 which may have something to do with that). My dad got so he liked to go to a different place and pick up dinner each night. He really liked the KFC baked chicken dinner. Then they had meals on wheels bring them one meal a day. Usually it was more food than they wanted for lunch, so he would save some for later. You are lucky to be near your folks - mine were 1800 miles away and we only went and spent a few weeks with them each year, until mother passed away and then we were able to move Dad back to our house. It sounds like you are enjoying helping them.

Back to work for me--a quiet day here, beautiful fall like sunny weather. People are coming to my house this weekend to pick apples and we have a get together Saturday night with a couple we are acquainted with to taste some wine she made from our pears. Then at church we are packing food for Kids Against Hunger. So- busy weekend!

Barb, God Bless you for taking care of our beloved parents. So many just want to forget them and go on with their daily things. I love how you said " you dad has a wicked sweet tooth"....

We have a DD only three miles away from us and we rarely see her. Our SIL stops by and checks up on us. We talk more to our DS over in Afghanistan more than we do our DD right in town here. We did see every week day tho when we did babysit for our two grandkids LOL

Good morning everyone.

Barb you really do keep busy. Do you have any siblings to help you take care of mom and dad?

I think I need the vacation in Lake Placid next weekend.
well, we're off for our walk

I didn't get much sleep today, I always shop for my parents in the morning after my last night, plus had to get grain and a few grocery things. I stopped and sat with them for about an hour and a half. It is kind of depressing to see my mother's mind wonder so much, the dementia really has advanced a lot in the last couple of months. I don't know how my Dad does it taking care of her, plus learning to cook, he showed me his blueberry muffins today, it is hard to explain cooking techniques to someone that has never cooked and doesn't know the basics. His muffins were kind of tough, and way too much nutmeg and cinnamon in them, also he over did it on the blueberries, it called for 1/2 to 1 cup and he put a cup and a half of the great big ones from my bushes, so the middles were a mass of blueberries. I have to hand it to him though, looking up recipes and trying them out. Last week he tried biscuits and they were also kind of hard, he is over handling the dough. I am supposed to get him a different recipe so I will do that tomorrow along with a blueberry muffin recipe that doesn't have so much spices in it. I think I will also make them a apple pie! My Dad has a wicked sweet tooth, I made a blueberry pie a couple of weeks ago for them and it was gone in two days, a big 10" deep dish pie too! I told him I would make him some spaghetti sauce so I will try to get that done tomorrow also since I have to go back to work on Sunday night.
I took a half hour fast walk to get my 10 K steps in out there in the dark, very cool evening. Then covered all my plants in the courtyard, now chores and hopefully an early bed time tonight!

Oh Liz that is great that you can go to an over 50 condo. Is it on the ground floor or do you have to climb stairs? My mother lived in a place like that but it was apartments and she made lots of friends right away.

Evening Everyone! I can't believe it! Early this morning I posted here and it's gone!

Peggy - I hope to move in Oct. to a very pretty over-50 condo development. I hope my house sells quickly! I was originally going to an assisted living but the people, while lovely, are too old (80s and 90s) for me. I am only 73 and can manage living alone. It is 5 minutes from the nursing home and DD's. My sister is 15 minutes away.

Have a great evening!
