Morning All! 52 here this AM! High will be 75 and sunny! Fall is on the way!

So sad about that bus driver. Terrible for the children.

So happy BLC started today. My weight is up 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks from careless snacking and sloppy portions. I seem to be hungrier when the weather gets cooler.

Have a wonderful day!

Joyce, That is just so so sad about the lady getting killed by her own bus!! Wow, she surely has wings in heaven for saving the student. I think that is just what most of us would have done too. We are just wired that way to save a person in danger. God bless her in heaven..

We have to get our haircut once again today. Ken colored my hair before he went out and worked on the other rail now on the "99" van. This van is going to haunt us yet LOL...He cut the old rail off now and this afternoon he will start to weld the new one on...

I know it is an older van, but I do think it is a good project to keep Ken off of the couch and get moving. His diabetis numbers have been so much better too....

It is hard for me to get much done inside tho as I keep going to check on him. I wanted a big jug of water next to him just in case some thing would start on fire with him and his welding. He did take classes for it tho years ago in Milwaukee...

Sounds like the same temps here in Rockland County NY. It was 48 when we went for our walk.

Today I'm going to organize my things. You all know how I love to do that. When I get here I usually just put things where they belong but really not too neatly. Now I have to get everything in order.

Sounds like you've already settled into routine Peggy! I thought of Jerry when we listened to our county fair band this year.

Barb, I think you're "off days" are busier than your working days! Whew!

OH - a SAD, SAD story in our area today. A bus driver was doing the practice evacuation drills with her passengers. Suddenly the bus started rolling. She pushed a child out of the way to safety, but she was hit and killed! OMG! My daughter Amy drives bus, so that really hit home with me! They're investigating to see why the brakes didn't hold!

Jodi, Dave and Adin came down and we had a delicious roast beef supper.

We are going up on Saturday to watch his soccer game.

Jerry went to band practice tonight. It is funny that he has band on Tuesday night in Florida and NY.

It has been colder here too, last night about 3 am I went for a walk around the parking lot with just my scrubs and light jacket, that will make you move faster! It was very quiet most of the night so I got my 30 minutes of high activity in with 3 10 minute fast walks. I am so pleased to hit another milestone, below 190 now!!! I have been walking at home with alternating light jogging, hoping my knee and hit will stand up to interval training, so far it is one minute of jogging and 3-4 minutes walking.

Looking forward to my days off, just three again and one will be a sleep day, but after the next stretch I will have 5 days off. Maybe I can get started on building the back pasture. Also have lots of canning to get done with all those pears and plums, house stuff wars with farm stuff all the time.

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Andy and I both have our fasting bloodwork tomorrow morning. He had to have his blood thinner level checked and since we both have our reg. appts in 2 weeks, we're just going to combine it all at one time. Usually we do the fasting bloodwork a week before the appt, but doc said it's fine to do it tomorrow. :-)

Very chilly here today- we have the furnace on and I bumped the heat up a bit.

My daughter's dog is visiting us while they go on vacation - my dog Carson is so happy to have his "cousin" Justice visiting us - my cat - no so happy about it- she's in hiding.

emoticon My dog HOPE-E is SCARED Of the DARK! emoticon !!!!

For 2 .5 years she has slept with me. I use to leave my TV on at night...volume down...but at least the light on. Then I got a LAVA LAMP and I kept that on. I now turn off the TV..I like it a little darker in my room...and my Lava lamp was unplugged....so for the last 3 nights HOPE-E has left and slept in Jen's room. I wake up in the morning and she will come see me...but in the middle of the night when I use the restroom she isn't there for me to HUG!!

So last night..I turned on the Lava Lamp..and Hope-E stayed in my room all night..until 4:30 when I woke up to use the restroom...my lava lamp was OFF.....I went back to bed and HOPE-E was gone again.....she didnt' come back until 7 when my alarm went off..she came to say good morning to me.

Sillly girl!!

I need a night light or something...so my dog will stay in my room with me...silly girl!!!

Good Morning!

Brrrr, Peggy. We're at 60 here, so you have us beat. You sure hit the floor running being that busy your first day back! Enjoy!

Merri, guys are funny that way - might as well let him get 'er done so it stops bugging him. Andy asked the body shop guy yesterday about a piece that fell off our car. The car is in such nice shape, but the small piece under the doors rusted off! He said "You don't even want to go there, it's a unibody and you're talking a couple thousand!" Dang!! Going to see if our GS can figure out some way of doing it, since he's a welder. Might be able to weld a piece under there to attach that strip to.

Hi Gwyn!

Hello Roz - so happy you're stopping by again!

New round of BLC officially starts tomorrow, so I know some of the gals are busy getting set up for that.

Have a great day everyone.

It is only 46 here this morning. Ken is waiting for the new rail to come for the passenger side of the van so he can cut the old rusty rail out and get the new one to fit...It is under the nice plastic molding that they put over the rail, so of course, only he can really see it LOL...

We're off for our walk and then out to breakfast and the grocery store.

When we get back I'll be heading out with my friend Kathy and going shopping for the morning and then lunch. A fun day is planned for my first day in NY

It's 53 this morning. We're not in Florida any more.

Weather here is rainy and cool - had to turn the heat on in the office this a.m. - Light frost Sunday morning.

Good Monday morning friends!
I always see Monday as a day for new beginnings, new challenges and by Wednesday it's back to business as usual.This morning I did only a short walk about 20 minutes the went to the sea and actually got in 500 strokes swimming in between soaking, chatting with friends. All together I spent about an hour in the sea.Then I've bee reducing my carbs these past two weeks and I've lost another pound today so I'm really a happy camper today!
As a result I'm feeling really energised! emoticon
Have a blessed day everyone! emoticon

Good Morning!

Merri - I hear ya on the van. Such a fine line between it being worth fixing and then having too much money in it to NOT fix it! That's where we're at with ours. It's not worth putting more into it, but we've invested more than we can get back out of it, so we ended up putting more in with fingers crossed it'll last a couple more years.

Sunny here today but definitely fall in the air.

It is 52 here this morning and they are calling for the high today to only get to 58...I see it is starting to rain in Milwaukee, so we will be getting the rain soon than too,,

Not much going on here today. Ken had to fix the brake indicator thing on the van yesterday. He is really wondering if it was worth keeping it or not. It is only a "99" Astro van but looks so good yet and for that year, not that many miles...

Aw poor Aiyden.

My Adin spent yesterday and today at Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos. They have a big swimming pool with lots of activities in it. Jodi said now that he is almost 11 and his friend Christian is 14 maybe Jodi and Christian's Mom will sit in the lobby reading. There is a big window where you can watch what's going on in the pool. plus lifegurards every 10 ft. around the pool.

We're in Staunton woo hoo only one more day of driving. Tomorrow it takes about 7 1/2 hours and then we're to our Haverstraw home.

There was one stop in Charlotte but we got going after 6 minutes but when we were riding in the hills of VA there were a lot of semi's passing semi's so it slowed us down at times.

It's nice to be out of the car but it was 68 when we got here and we're in shorts and t shirts.

It'll all fall into place Annie. Ninjas use a spreadsheet for tracking, too. I'm sure your leaders will walk you through whatever you need. Once you get to it, I found it easiest to put the link to it in my signature so it was always there handy.

Gwyn, glad you're feeling better.

Poor Aiyden, he just wasn't settling for a nap again today. Finally decided I better feed him his lunch before Andrea got home from work. Well, think maybe he wasn't napping because he had an upset stomach. About half way through his lunch he hurled everything - including the milk he'd had earlier. UGH! Scared him because it was several times and out his nose, poor thing. I had to totally change him and give him a sponge bath. Once he settled down, he took his bottle and was out like a light. Scrubbed down his feeding chair and disinfected it. I'm sure Andrea won't mind she missed it. She's not feeling the greatest either, has a nasty head cold.

Veg, glad you're feeling better and you follow orders on the not lifting!

Yaaaaay Annie - so happy you made it on a team - wish it had been Ninjas, but maybe next round!

YES Peggy, Andy and I went ALONE to see Trace Adkins in concert and then stopped to eat on the way home! You probably know better than most that it's a rare thing for us to really have a date alone! LOL

Merri - yep, got to invite him in, he made me a nightcap, and I don't have to send him home. emoticon

Happy to report that the pain from surgery is gone.
Has been replaced with mild discomfort.
That I can handle.
Still no bending or lifting anything heavier that 5 pounds.
That I can handle.

Steph, that didn't' sound like much fun on the mole removal, glad you got a good nights sleep and I hope you feel better!

Veg, I hope you are feeling better too, it is so easy to get dehydrated and makes you feel so bad post surgery.

Peggy, must be sad to leave the trips to Bagel King behind, it sure sounded good!

Merri, I always wonder how and why someone can be so mean, they must be very unhappy people, sorry you have to put up with this.

Joyce, guess that ipart of the problem, is that I used to have a market garden and went down to Millinocket once a week with Eggs, Butter and garden and orchard stuff. But since I had to go back to work it is impossible to do something like that until I get to retire again. In the mean while there is so much stuff getting ripe all the time I hate to see it go to waste. Having a home raspberry patch and having one to sell raspberries is a big difference, and mine was to sell raspberries and is huge. I give away a ton of stuff, but most people don't really want to come and pick it themselves they want it delivered all picked and I don't have time for that for free. I usually can talk myself into just picking what I want and letting the rest fall to the ground, it will be there again next year! But it is hard to walk away from loaded bushes of raspberries or blueberries. I did get several people to pick blueberries this year. The other part of the problem is that now I am alone and one person can't do what two did especially when I am also working out, so I do what I can, the animals come first!

I had my wellness screen this morning at 6am, my BP was 120/78, I was not fasting but my sugar was only 81 and my Chol/triglycerides were very good at 160 and 66. They think I lost 50 lbs, I think their scales are off but that is ok because I got a reward of $300. Guess some new clothing is in order since everything I own is baggy to the extreme! So I did pick up 3 pairs of pants and a couple of tops when I did errands today, tried on some scrubs but didn't like them so I think I will order some from Amazon. I also rewarded myself with a beautiful potted Mum, in 3 shades of purple, it is so pretty!

We got up at 6 am to walk so that we could go to Bagel King one last time.

I had to be at the Woman's Club at 8:45. someone brought me a garbage bag full of yarn. It was full of great yarn too. Someone that she knew was giving it away because her husband gave her an ultimatum the yarn goes or he does.

I'm bringing some of it to NY to make slippers.

Merri, what a shame that woman is so miserable in her own life that she has to be that unkind to others!

Exhausted today.
Had a tough time with the minor surgery yesterday.
Had to be awake for it.
They just used local numbing medications.
Quite painful.
Had to go to the ER last nite and found out that my blood pressure was quite low and was dehydrated.
Guess it will take time for me to bounce back.

This terrible lady came on the 50 site once again early this morning and posted something just terrible about one of us on there....It was taken off before I got on there tho this morning. What is wrong with some people? The first time was around 18 days between and this time around 20 days between.....

Coach Jen said to always just report it to her and not to respond to her message at all....Oh so sad this lady has to be to find something wrong to have to post...

Hi everyone - Not sure if I mentioned it but I did get my flu shot this week

Steph- what a horrible experience. Hope you heal quickly.

Coolest day here in 112 years. But it's still over freezing so it's great.

Posting my photo at FerretLover1's request - after I mentioned how motivating a haircut can be on my Sparkpage Blog. Hope to change my profile picture again this weekend when my new painting is done!

Hope everyone has a great productive day!

Hi gals.....

Gwyn, I hope something opens up soon for you!

I'm sleepy this morning. Don't know why it is when I have to be up early for Aiyden, I want to sleep, but when I don't have to be up - I'm wide awake. Grrr

Well, the gates to BLC26 opened. Jo Ann, YAAAAY, you are a Ninja! Annie, did you decide not to sign up this round? For some reason I thought you were going to do it. Peggy, I see you're still with Mary. :-)

Barb, I can't even imagine doing that much stuff! Thought I did a lot with two large vegetable gardens. Whew! Maybe you should open up a produce stand!

I did get the grapes all skinned and in the freezer, so feel like I accomplished something!

The cider was great, I gave a gallon to my Dad and one to a neighbor that stopped to give us some bear meat, and I put 2 gallons in the fridge, and my neighbor took 3 gallons, his fridge is bigger lol. I like the cider when it just gets a little fizzy but I like it now too! It has been such an overwhelming year for all kinds of fruit. I have been drying apples, plums and cherry tomatoes, then I canned some plums in portwine cinnamon syrup, and some plum preserves, maybe tomorrow I will get the minted pears done. I juiced all the elderberries and canned the juice to do something with later, no time now! So far I have made about 5 gallons of applesauce, froze some gave some away and ate a lot! I have got apples everywhere and still have a half bushel of plums to take care of, I did try drying some and they are tasty! Along with the two orchards I have there are wild apples on all the line fences about every 10 feet, those are the ones I pick for cider.
I think I could supply fruit for most of the town, what was I thinking when I planted all these trees! I know my raspberry patch is big enough for about a family of 50 and 10 high bush blueberry bushes are about 9 too many, but I give a lot of stuff away and give gifts of jams, jellys and syrups.

Aw Steph, that sure wasn't a good experience for you! Hope they heal quickly!

Peggy, I'm SURE you're getting excited!

Roz, Glad the painter finally showed up, but BOO on the blowout! That's not fun!

I picked enough grapes for four pies. Have to make DD pie for her birthday next month and then have some for the holidays. I have the skins slipped on two batches, two to go. Then I put the pulp part in a small freezer bag, and put it in a large freezer bag with the skins. Makes it much easier when it's time to make the pies.

Steph-----Hope you're less sore now. Just reading about your experience made me cringe.

That painter eventually showed up at 5.15 pm.

Experienced a tyre blow out yesterday,luckily it was not too far from home,so I got help and went out and bought a new one(first time for me)

Had my driving permit renewed today. IN T&T this is free for seniors so I'm pleased about that.
The usual cost is $500.TT.

Have a blessed evening everyone!

Oh Steph I am so sorry that you had to go through all of that alone. Hope it feels better soon.

We went and got sliced turkey and cheese and bread for our sandwiches for our trip.

I am really getting to feel excited.

Okay..I'm going to complain for a minute:

My doc couldn't leave things alone. NOOOO ....he wanted to remove two moles that I have. He said it would be real easy, quick and painless (NEVER BELIEVE A DOC)!!!

I had a mole on my rib cage and my neck. last night the doc sprayed it with some FREEZE STUFF..yikes was that cold...that almost hurt too much it was so cold, especially by my face.
Then he starts cutting (and although my eyes are closed..I can hear it...no wonder my dog jumps when she hears me cutting her hair). The sound is freaky

And..I feel it...."OUCH"..but he goes..you shouldn't feel this....well UM??? I DO!!!
And...not only that...I feel the BLOOD Running down my side and down my back....oh ick gag...can I tell you....no....WHY? Because words do not describe what I feel..about blood dripping down my body....

He finishes the rib one..and moves up to my neck....that hurt too..big pinch...but I'm trying to hold everything in.

Finally he is done...takes a rag to clean up my body..cuase the blood is all over it...
and then when I sit up..he tells me to be careful cause the gown I was wearing was covered in my blood (DROP FAINT NOW)....uggggg

I can't move my head because the tape holding the giant hole in my neck together is at a weird angle..and I tell the doc and he said "DON"T MOVE "...for 3 to 4 days..OH LOVELY!!
So...I have a kink in my neck.....at least it's not bleeding though..right!!!


So I change clothes.. ...look in the mirror at my taped up neck...and I almost faint again..it's like doctor masking tape..and I can see through it..to the holes in my body..and yep...can I say...I would rather have 20 TATTOOS before I would EVER have a mole removed again.

Made it to my car...and just sobbed...yep..I did.
Then i remembered..I had a mole removed a few years ago.(that one was scary..it was way deep..and they couldn't stop the bleeding...so they had to caterise it...uggg).....BUT CINDY was with me..and I didn't have to see any blood...and afterwards Cindy took me to get a CHOCOLATE MILK SHAKE.....cause she is the best.

And that just made me cry more..cause I miss CINDY....and I wish I could call and tell her about this horrible mole loosing experience.....

And..I did NOT get a chocolate milkshake...cause I knew I would feel horrible..but I thought about her and my shake from last time.

AND by the time I got home..I was EXHAUSTED....
I went to bed

and DREAMED CINDY CAME BACK TO LIFE...and DECIDED TO MOVE IN WITH ME AND JEN..since KENDALL WAS RE MARRIED!

Yep..I miss that lady!!!

I agree it's amazing what eating right, losing weight and exercising can do for you health. I had gotten down to the lowest dose possible of my b.p. meds a couple years ago but then had an episode of it being really high - enough to send me to ER - and with the follow ups, ended up on a higher dose than I had been on before. Still have no clue why.

Grey and dreary today and only going to be in the 60's the rest of the week. Guess the fall weather is here. Had tornadoes in Ohio last night, but I don't think there were any injuries, thankfully.

I've never made cider. I've canned applesauce, that's about it with apples.

Be time for BLC to start up again soon - I'm ready to be held more accountable! I tend to "goof off" between rounds. LOL

Cool weather in Iowa today- needed gloves and jacket on the way into work. Stopped at church with Corn Bread for the Salvation Army Dinner our Mission Committee is serving tonight - and left my broaster there for the other gals to make beef stew for tonight. Quiet day here at work.

That is awesome Steph. I too was able to come off all meds several months ago. No more blood pressure meds, no more water pills, no more meds for gout. The doctor said it was because of weight loss, exercising, and eating healthy. Who knew there would be so many benefits to joining SP?!!

I'm gonna make it!

We had our share of rain here yesterday too. The sun did come out later tho with some cooler weather along with it. It is just 47 here right now and get some what warmer later today...

I have to do our sheets today and fill my med container. Oh yes, wash my sleep apnea supplies really good once a week too...

Not much to get done...Maybe put something in the oven today too. A good day for that

That was quite a workout with the cider press, we changed off each grinding a 5 gallon bucket of apples but I was worried about my neighbor, he is a little older then me but I thought he was pretty fit, but he had to stop 5 or 6 times for each 5 gallon bucket huffing and puffing, it kind of worried me. I have been researching putting a motor on the grinder, I have a motor, but would need a pulley about 18". I will check the shaft size when I get home in the morning so I can order one. We are supposed to try to finish up the apples we picked on Tuesday Saturday. I don't think I can get it motorized by then, but my neighbor was talking about bringing a friend to help with the cranking. We made about 7 gallons of cider on Tuesday, not bad considering we had to get the press out and pick the apples first but I was tired when we got done. Last time we did it I already had all the apples picked and we did 22 gallons.

Our Drs. visit went great. I couldn't get a cortisone shot in my foot because it is too intricate a place to give it. He said he would feel better if the Orthopedic Podiatrist gave it to me. It's a doozy of a shot and last time I got it I thought I would never get it again but I think it's about time.

Hi gals......busy day today. Andy and I rode with Brenda to the beauty supply place in Niles. It's so much easier if someone goes with her so she doesn't have to take Aiyden in and out of the van so much. We'd taken Andy's wedding ring to be resized and it was ready to pick up so we did that while we were out. A quick stop at WM for a few things, went to lunch at Olive Garden and then back home. Hadn't been home too long when tornado warnings popped up and one was spotted not far from here, so we were in the basement awhile. Finally got an all clear and things are back to normal.

Peggy, I've been working on the baby afghan. I have a couple of other afghans I started somewhere - need to look them up. LOL

We have our dr checkup in a couple weeks, too. I think we get our bloodwork done next week. Would have been a week later but Andy needs his blood thinning level checked, so just going to go ahead and get it all done then.

Steph, that is AWESOME news - all I can say is ABOUT TIME! Keep up the good work!
