Grace, That is too bad that you are cutting your trip short. We have never been very good about being away from home. We like the ones where we might go someplace during the day and than be in our own bed that night LOL..

Ken can't walk very far either and than he is out of breath. We just take our time now even going for our walks lately.

We are having some cooler weather again. Just a few days over the weekend almost hitting 90. Now nice once again....

I want to get the grass cut today as they are calling for rain later tomorrow....I love doing the outside work, so it is nice getting out there. Have to get my inside things done first tho....Like filling my med box, washing my sleep apnea stuff and doing the sheets....

Annie, those muffins sound awesome. I saw our area blueberry patch was full of pickers yesterday! The kids went there one year to pick, but I never have.

Barb, I had a nasty break in my ankle years ago, too. Tangled with a horse - the kids had tied him wrong, he panicked and was strangling himself so I went to rescue him. He was rearing and he came down and landed on my foot, just as I lunged away to keep from getting hit full on with him. Needless to say, pitting his weight against mine didn't work out and my ankle was shattered and required surgery. Been very lucky though, outside of a lengthy healing process then, I haven't had trouble with it over the years. (knock on wood).

There were some heavy rains in NE Ohio yesterday, but they missed us - we only had light showers, but wow are the temps cooler!

Joyce, I know what you mean about the post office ours has limited hours now, from 8 to 10:30 and 1 to 3, I never get there at the right time. There are several small towns within 5-10 miles here and they all have a post office, I would rather travel a little and have one that opens all day then this mess!

I didn't do much of anything today but errands after work, stopped at my parents with some goodies for them, and my Dad sent me out to pick some fresh green beans for my supper, amazing how much he gets done at his age, mine won't be ready for a few more weeks!

We were supposed to have severe thundershowers this afternoon but they by passed us and it was only in the distance that I heard rumbling when I woke up once this afternoon. Just as glad we didn't get them, but we did get a little rain and it cooled it off and took of the humidity.

Annie, those muffins sounded pretty good! I need to pick some blueberries myself, but today is kind of a down day for me, need to get caught up on my sleep! Hope your friend gets on her feet quick, I have problems with my food swelling a lot, they said it was arthritis set in several former breaks, none of which I knew I had. I think when I broke my ankle in several places, tore the tendon and separated the tibia and fibia about 15 years ago that a couple of the breaks in the foot also happened unnoticed since there was so much other damage.

I am about to eat a very late supper and go back to bed, have a good night everyone!

Oops! I lost the link to this thread when I didn't respond right away and I obviously deleted that e-mail too because I didn't come across it when I was cleaning out my mailbox! Sorry to be so MIA - I've been super busy on the BLC preparing for the break and the next round! I've been totally relaxing this last week too - probably spending too much time on the computer but I like to have things set up ahead of time!

We're on our way home - two weeks early! We just are not enjoying this summer travel! It's too darn HOT! I think that our travel lifestyle has changed too. We used to drive thousands of mile on a trip and make huge loops of the country. Now I think we both prefer staying in one place for a longer period of time! I think part of that is Dan just can't walk as much as he used to and he's not interested in touring. We're taking it much easier with this trip!

I've just read the last page of posts and I'll never remember what was said or who said it! I'll just try harder to keep on top of this thread!

Well that's no fun for Adin! Thankfully it's something that will go away and hopefully those inserts make walking OK for him. Will say a prayer for a speedy recovery!!

Adin was just on Skype and they just found out that he has Severs disease. Only children get it and boys usually get it between the ages of 10 and 15. It has to do with the growth plate in the heel. Usually active kids involved in sports get it and it usually goes away after 2 years. He got heel things to put in his shoes and he has to always wear shoes. He has to go back to the Dr the day before he flies down here. Hope it calms down a little because we are going to Disney for 5 days.

Joyce, I could start in Sept but the earliest I could get online would be 16th Aug to register. I would then be in Brussels where I should have access to internet.

Ania, open registration for the next round will be sometime around Aug. 15th, but the round doesn't begin till Sept. 23, a fairly long break this time. I'll let you know when the one after that is.

Good evening all. I haven't done much today, not in the mood anyway. It's been 11 years today since my Mum died and I really miss her.

Today was much cooler than the last 2 days and we stayed home. Tomorrow we are going travelling a bit around Scotland for 3 days, to give them a bit of respite and so the girls can play with their own friends. It also gives us a chance to do some sightseeing. Going to Aviemore tomorrow morning and then on Friday to Braemar to see the Balmoral Castle where the Queen spends Christmas holidays. It's open now to visitors till the end of the month.

Annie - sorry about you BFF's ankle. Hope it's just sprained and not worse. Well done on your walk with Pepper! I know you going to Portland again tomorrow. Safe journey and see if you can go walkabout around the hospital.

Joyce - I need to get back to BLC but I am travelling now till 25th August so will have to wait till next time. Keep us posted when the next one is opening.
Congrats on your great result! emoticon Enjoy your cukes. emoticon

Peggy - what a great boy Adin is! A hobo bag is called a 'swag' Down Under like the famous Australian song 'Waltzing Matilda'. It would be carried by a jolly/happy swagman when he camps by a billabong/pond.
Do you think Jerry's GP's were married in Venice, Italy? There is no town by that name in Poland. Don't know what Znin means. In Polish 'Wenecja Venetia' can only mean Venice in Italy.

Marilyn - good news on the new TV, hope you get a nice one tonight.

Roz - well done with your swimming! I am glad that the sinuses feel much clearer now.

Yeah Peggy, I signed up again. Thought about not doing it, but there's a pretty good break this time, so figured I'd better. Lost 9.5 this round - missed my goal by half a pound! UGH! That's a lot of triple crochets - I agree, they can be a pain!

Did anyone on here rejoin the BLC ?

Yesterday Joyce I had Hands in Motion and I worked on that Bavarian Crochet afghan. It is mostly triple crochet and that is sometimes a pain but the afghan looks really nice.

Today I am staying home and working on my family tree.

Hi gals.....cooler here today too Merri. Pretty cloudy, haven't seen the forecast for today but it looks like we could get some showers. The lawn is cut, so it's OK.

Picked some cucumbers from those I planted in the tractor tire. The vines are a lot more compact than the traditional cucumber vines, so it really worked well. The tomatoes I put in the planters, not so good. There is only one tomato and the plants just haven't done well, doggone it. Maybe it's the variety of plant I got, dunno.

Not sure what I'm up to today. Have to mail that baby set to our GD. Andy took it yesterday but they were "closed for lunch". And they wonder why the post office is going broke?? You'd think they'd keep one clerk on the window at least, I imagine lunch time is the only time a lot of people can get there! I kinda don't want to leave the house - ordered DH a small flat screen TV for his birthday and it might be delivered today. I'm pretty sure he'd know what it was if he got the delivery! Oh well.....see what develops here. Aiyden is with my daughter today.

How was your day yesterday Peggy??

I had half a pound to lose to meet my goal for the 12 week challenge and doggone if I couldn't do it! GRRRRRR Oh well, 9.5 isn't bad I guess. The lower I get the harder it is to lose it!

It is going to be cooler here today. No rain at all and we really need it here. It is only 61 right now....We like the cooler weather here...

Today we get our hair cut again. My DH wants me to get mine cut shorter. I had let it grow out some for the wedding in June....It would be a lot easier to take care of...Just wash and run...

Annie, I hope things get better for you soon..

Steph so happy for you. things are starting to turn around.

Adin was funny last night on Skype he went and got his "hobo" pack of things that he is taking with him in 13 days to go camping with his family There are 16 of them going to Rhode Island.

In his blue and white kerchief he had a little tool kit that I got for him as a band giveaway, his pocket knife, his change purse so he can ride his bike to the camp store, a little Tupperware container that I gave him that he puts some candies in to put in his pocket, a foldup disc that I got for him from Boars Head that he can play Frisbee with and his leatherman.

He had it all tied up in the bandana and then he went and got a cane that he tied it too so that he could put it over his shoulder.

Steph, you are sure on the right track - I know it's been a long time getting there, but you GO girl! Ten pounds is AWESOME! And indeed, you have lots of material for a wonderful sermon. I'm sure God will lead you in the right direction.

Annie, it has to be hard with all the back and forth trips you make. Can you walk the halls when DH is at his appts? That's what I did when Andy was in the hospital, either walked the halls or went outside and walked the perimeter of the hospital when he was busy with a test or had a visitor.

emoticon So excited!! Finally got over the depression I was fighting last week!
Basically missing Cindy (and keeping it trapped inside instead of talking about it) I think SILENCE bugs me more than anything. Once I can verbalize things I do much better.

p.s. Going to get my first Tattoo on Sept 6th (Maybe..going to see the artwork first). Will tell you more about that later. I swore I would NEVER get one...but heck!!! I feel moved and have for a long time.

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY - My brother has been texting me LOTS more than usual! I love it!! Hearing from him. Mom just did a will and told us both that she split everything for us. Adam texted me and said "Yeah..now that you two are talking, you get half of what would have been all mine"!!! ha ha ha...he is a FUNNY BOY!!!

JUICE - Cucumber Fuzz: That's the title. Cucumbers, peaches, celery and a lemon!! YUM YUM!! It tastes amazing. Can't wait for dinner!!

emoticon 10 lbs (per Sparks). It's been 6 weeks. I haven't really done much. I need to work out more to get toned and stuff. But just 6 weeks of drinking Veggies and getting in good foods....and I have lost 10 official pounds. I weigh in with Sparks every MONDAY! So it's a SLOW process...but I like it. I'm at least going in the RIGHT direction!! WHOO HOOO....going to keep eating me some VEGGIES / FRUIT!!

emoticon AHHH. So to make a LONG story short. My best friend (JEN) and I have talked much over the last few weeks about ME doing a SERMAN at my church. Ya right!! Like I could do one. (P.s. I love giving speeches that was one of my favorite College courses). Anyway...I keep praying about it. And wondering WHEN to talk to TOBY my pastor. WELL....last night during Bible Study (only 5 of us showed up last night, and Toby leads it). We were discussing stuff we were reading and I popped off with just one of my "GOD DOESN"T THINK LIKE WE DO.....etc". AND Dennis goes - Steph you need to do a serman, and Toby said 'YES you do", and Patricia said "yes". And as the night went on...I would say stuff and Toby and Dennis and Patricia all said "ADD THAT TO YOU SERMAN"!!! LOL So....I'm really praying about it...and going to start writing down ideas on what I want to share....and once I have it written down I will take it to Toby and have him put me on the list for a SUNDAY!!! YIKES...excited...Scary....OH MY HOW FUN!!!!

okay that's enough prattling for one day!!!
Hope you all have a great day!

Hi gals.....

Peggy, sounds like you have a busy day ahead, but a fun one. Haven't heard back from my cousin yet, she said she had to ask my aunt (who's not online at all).

Marilyn, I just bought Andy a new small flat screen TV for our bedroom for his birthday (Aug 2). We have a really old TV in there with a bad picture. I don't watch it but he does, so figured I'd get him a better one. Wouldn't you know yesterday he was looking at the Sunday paper ads and mentioned how inexpensive TV's are now and we should get one for the bedroom. LOL

Andrea works 12-3 or 4 today, not sure which, but a short shift, so an easy day for me.

Going to be around 90 here. The kids got in the pool last night but the water still wasn't too warm. We get a couple of really hot days and then it gets cool again. I guess that's what's happening this week, too.

Hope you all have a great day!!!

Good morning everyone so nice to see so much chatter.

I'm off to Lauratta's for tea this morning after a 9 o'clock meeting with the President of the womans club so that she can tell me what she wants me to work on this year. This afternoon is Hands in Motion

Hello ladies,

On again late. Checking in with posts. Did a little bit of cleaning myself today. Surprise for me!! Stopped at my son's(Tim) this evening, They were just finishing eating and DS asked if I had eaten. He had cooked brats on the grill and had homegrown corn fixed already. Invited me to have some, so I did. Made plans with him to go to Best Buy on Wed night. Shopping for a new TV. Been watching a small TV in computer room. Our big TV is downstairs where I do not go since I don't have much reason to be there. Have never had a TV in the LR, so that will be a first for me. Have a great night and good day tomorrow.

Ania!--------Good hearing from you ! emoticon

Marilyn-------So glad that your son & his family were able to get a new house.
I know what you mean about FB, I play a few games on there and it does absorb a lot of my time some days AND I must add here that I've not been able to win win Joyce yet!! emoticon she is a real pro ladies!

Have a blessed evening all.

What a weekend!! Long and busy!!

Friday - Bunco - had a blast!! What fun. Huge room of people and lots of laughs!

Sat - early morning wake up. Went to a friends to pick up her "SHRED" papers all boxed up and drove them to a "free Shred" place (once a year they are in town and we helped our friend who cannot drive take her stuff there).

Then the Farmers Market - then went looking for STARFRUIT but it's out of season. So none for this time.

Sun - Church and then went to visit Micki in the hospital. She looks good. Has her color back. Thoughts that MAYBE she can go home on WED??? But not sure. Will keep you all updated!!

Mon - work is busy busy!!! Bible Study tonight!

For a change we've had lovely 3 days in a row, sunny and warm. Today the 5 of us went to Anstruther, a small quaint village about 40 min from Dundee on the coast for a fish and chips lunch and a play on the beach. The girls played and we just sat in the emoticon

Hi Barb - where's your Spark Page? I'd love to help pick gallons of raspberries, they are sooo expensive here now and we all love them.

Annie - an Erma Bombeck book should get you emoticon Enjoy it!

Merri - I do the same, I colour my hair BEFORE getting it cut, don't want to go to the hairdresser with grey hair, lol.

Joyce - I hope Andy's work will bring the hot weather and warm up the pool water. Enjoy your Aiyden free day. Well done on getting Aiyden's play yard built and finishing with a great BBQ. Hope you hear soon from your cousin about your Polish ancestors.
What's a BAD case of CRS?

Peggy - glad you finding all Jerry's relatives in Poland and if you give me some names of towns or villages I might be able to help with the location. I still have 2 cousins living in Warsaw and I plan to call her tomorrow night.

Marilyn - I am glad that Doug and Karen have a new home and I hope they'll call Mum more often now. How about telling them that you miss hearing their voices, instead of just hints, TELL. Don't be shy. Anyway, it works both ways, you can call them, which is what I do with my son.
He lives just 3 miles from us and supposed to come over for dinner every day, so I call him to find out if he's coming. He finally moved to the apartment that we renovated 3 years ago last September just before our DD and her family came to stay with us from Scotland. After 3 weeks they left but DS is fine on his own, so he says.

It's after midnight, so time for emoticon

Beautiful day here too Annie! Supposed to be sleeping but.... Picked two gallons of raspberries yesterday and another two gallons this morning when I got home from work, the amount of raspberries out there is amazing. A neighbor is going to pick some tonight, I hate to see them go to waste, there were a lot this morning that were no good.

Bagel King Monday and then we went to CVS for my prescription and some vitamins, Home Depot for supplies, and then the bank to put some in to help pay for what we just bought.

I came home and paid some bills on the phone.

Boy we spent a lot of money today without really going too far.

Easy come, easy go.

Good Morning friends!!

Trudy, sounds like you had an awesome weekend!!! We have a gorgeous day here today. It was pretty rainy and cloudy all weekend, but after about six beautiful weekends in a row, I'm not complaining! Especially since we lucked out with both our big parties!

Andy is going to vacuum the pool this morning, supposed to be pretty hot today and tomorrow, maybe it'll get some use finally.

Marilyn, I'm glad your son and DIL found a "ready to go" home! I know exactly what you mean though about recalling things that were lost. That was me after our house fire......so many little things. Not easy, I know.

Nothing in particular planned for today - probably laundry and some putzing. Not an "Aiyden day" so a little more relaxing. It works out so well with DD wanting him the two nights before her days off - gives us all breaks here and there. Not as young as I used to be. LOL

Good morning,
We have another beautiful day here. The heat and humidity are increasing, but, I got my outside work finished over the weekend. Now, it's suppose to cool off again my mid week when I'll have to mow again.
Sat night I went to a performance at the university. It was called, That's What She Said. Several women talked about significant events in their lives. Some funny, some sad. It was fantastic. I went with 6 people from my Y group and 2 friends who don't belong to the Y. Sunday I went to another friends for girls swim party. There were 6 of us. We sat in lawn chairs and visited. Only one gal got into the water. It wasn't really hot or the others probably would have. I was there a little over 2 hours. It was very relaxing.
Wed. the Y group is going downtown for dinner and Bitchin' Bingo. I think I've told you about that. Adult bingo. It's so much fun. You can't be easily offended or you won't enjoy it!!
I have some real cleaning I need to do before my sil comes for a visit the first week of Aug.
I hope you're all feeling well and have a great week.

Read the posts and remembered what I was going to say...

Friday my DS and DIL and their family moved into their home. For those who are new to this thread, my DS Doug and his family totally lost their home in the tornado that hit WA. IL. Instead of building they found a house that is move in ready and moved in on Friday. I was over there helping them. Most of what they moved however was kitchen equipment and food. Karen had been out and bought bedding. They had delivered the mattresses, washer and dryer and TVs. All the important stuff.......I am so excited that they are back in WA and will be able to get settled in before school. I am so grateful that they are not having to build..... Doug is the park district director and has so many parks to rebuild that he didn't need to have a house to rebuild too.

Joyce, I have only the laptop as my computer. I am hoping it does not crash on me. Our other computer was at Doug's house when the tornado hit so there went our computer as well. He was going to get everything backed up to an external hard drive. Was hoping to get his pictures on the external drive. That of course is gone too. Everyday I think of something else that is gone. I do have a thumb drive and did back up my Quicken program, but need to do the rest.

Somebody mentioned Alaska........that was Denny and my last big trip we took. LOVED.....LOVED ......LOVED......it. Was one of the best trips we had. Have not welcomed Mary. Glad to have you here as well. Good luck with your plan on Sparkpeople.

Logging off, Hopefully be back tomorrow.

Hello everyone!!

Sounds like things are going well and it's SO awesome to see old friends checking in again! (Old as in long time, not elderly - just to be clear on that!!!! LOL)

Roz, sorry you've not been feeling the best, hope that turns around really fast!!

Our power was out awhile today so that set me back a bit, then DD, SIL and GS came over. Got Aiyden's play yard built and then Jim made BBQ ribs and were they ever YUMMY. Normally I don't care for ribs, but these were great!! Brenda and I took a three mile walk - that was fun, we haven't walked together in such a long time. After they all left, my other daughter came by to visit awhile and do a load of laundry. She flies to Florida tomorrow to visit her birth mother for about ten days. She took a fall a few weeks ago and her DH is in a rehab place, so Amy's sister went down to help her for a bit and now Amy is going down. Hopefully she'll be able to get by on her own by the time Amy leaves.

So it was a busy day, but fun. Brenda and Jim took Aiyden to a little festival near us and put him on the merry go round. Andrea and Gage went to a movie, and I'm here trying to catch up. LOL

Oh Marilyn, I have a BAD case of CRS most of the time, trust me!!

Hi Barbara, good to see you here!!

Peggy, I'm still waiting to hear from my cousin about where my grandparents were from. Sounds like you hit a good trail there on the family tree!

It is a blessing! That's why I stay right here even though I hate the hot and long summers! Every year for the first 40 years or so, I swore I was going to move to a cooler climate, like OR or WA, or even Alaska, but I never did because all my family is here:)

Hello to all my dear friends, I keep getting lost in FB and with other things.

Will spend time reading posts and catch up on what everyone is doing. I am home this week and then off to Big Cedar for the week with cousins. Should be a good time.

Glad to see Ania is back and posting and Roz it is good to see you.

Suz, I wish my DSs and their families would find it in their hearts to check on me once in a while. I do have my lonely days. That is so great that your family is so close and you are able to meet so often. That is truly a blessing.

Was going to make another comment but you know how that CRS disease is.......LOL

Ania, I am really lucky to have all my family so close by! We often go to breakfast together on Saturday and just recently some of our kids have been going too. All 3 of mine have showed up quite often lately and it's great, because two of them I don't see very often, although I do talk to my daughter on the phone in the morning and after work on weekdays. My youngest son is the only one I rarely talk to or see. He only lives a mile away too, but for some reason, he rarely comes over. My oldest son and I both love Survivor, and also watch Big Brother and The Amazing Race, so he comes over often and I record them at night then we watch them together in the morning before work. It's really nice:)

I've been finding lots of grandfathers and grandmothers on Jerry's Polish side thanks to Ania's correct spelling of Poznan. Now if I can only find a map and find the places.

Even though I have not posted for a while I still think of and remember you my friends but I've been somewhat out of sorts with a nasty bout of flu amongst other things.

Have not been doing much exercising -hate doing it alone and indoors, and we've been having lots of rain most days but hopefully should be back to my walking and swimming soon.

Hope everyone has a blessed and productive week.
Roz.

So much going on with this team, I love reading all the posts but sure can't remember who said what when I get ready to respond:)
I wen't to breakfast with my 2 sisters and all 3 of my kids yesterday, it was really nice! other than that, just been sleeping and practicing on my electric piano:) I'm getting a little better, but it's slow trying to learn, but I do love it!
I sure want to try that juicing! I am so swollen up everyday,and it makes me feel awful all over adn tired all the time. I think juicing would help:)
Have a good Sunday everyone, tomorrow is back to work!

Joyce someone just gave me a crochet book with sweater, hat and bootie sets in it. Maybe I'll try one but not yet too much going on.

Thanks again Ania I keep finding marriage records for Jerry's family going back into the 1800's in Poland. They have so much on line these days

Good Morning All!

The blueberries are already ripe here - we have a big blueberry patch around the block from us and there have been people there picking a week or so. It's a big "pick your own" patch. I remember how busy a farm can keep you.....lived on a big dairy farm for thirty years.

Merri, we still have grey skies here. Been a gloomy weekend.

SIL, GS and Andrea's new fella are coming over to fence in a play area for Aiyden. There's a spot between our back deck and sunporch that is perfect to make him a play yard. Want to get a covered sandbox and he already has a wading pool, a small slide and other outdoor toys. SIL is going to BBQ some ribs. I have extra pasta salad and fruit salad from yesterday - I was thinking ahead. LOL

I finished the baby afghan last night! Yaaay! All I have to do is make a flower for the cap and the set is done. I think I'll mail it so if she has the baby before we get down there next month she can bring her home from the hospital with it if she wants to.

Another beautiful sunny day out there, I kind of run my self ragged yesterday trying to fit all these things into one day off, picked cherries again, I want to try making some maraschino cherries, should be interesting. A neighbor came over and also picked some to make a cherry cobbler, nice to have company up in the tree lol! I spent another hour out in the hay field spraying milkweed in an attempt to take back my hay fields, the top field is about done, I have lost over 1/3 of my hay fields to milkweed invasion. Then I bushhogged two pastures and my neighbor volunteered to mow my lawn which was really nice! I finished weedwacking around the blueberries and got the net over them, they are starting to get ripe, it all happens at once! I never did get to pick the raspberries, I will have to go down this morning and pick some, I hate to see them go to waste, but I am going to be the next three nights working so not much time.

It is going to be another nice sunny day. We could actually see the smoke around the sun here yesterday from the fires going on....So hazy...

We went to get me a new pair of tennis shoes yesterday. Boy, what a difference in price from one store to another. Than even on line too. I wanted this one pair of New Balance that were on line but out of stock. Sears only had a wide size there and wouldn't honor the price on my add as they said mine were medium and theirs were wide...My add was on sale for 38.24 and theirs were 44.99...

We than went to Penneys and got the right ones on sale and an extra 20% off too... So cheaper than the ones on line with the tax included...I am one happy camper now...I got mine for 38.99 tax included,

Our foot dr said I have Plantar Fasciitis and a new good support shoe should help some. Than of course some exercises too

Good morning everyone.

Thanks for the correct spelling of Poznan Ania. I went to the Poznan Project website and found the wedding date of Jerry's grandparents and their parents names

We're off to Church BBL

Peggy, I'll have to ask my cousin again - I've forgotten the name of the town.

Ania, the shower gift was a huge success. The blanket is so unique. You send a photo to the company and they make it so the image is actually woven into the threads, not printed on it. There's a pic of it on FB. We saw one at our friend's daughter's shower last year and thought it was such a wonderful idea, we got the name of the company to have them made. Cost right around $100 and it's done in three days' time.

Peggy - the name of the town is 'POZNAN' and it's a big provincial town. I haven't been there as yet, I am still young and might visit it when next in Poland. Don't know anyone there, so not much reason to go. At home I have an old Polish Atlas so when I get back in 5 weeks might look it up if you want me to. I suppose you can Google it yourself before then.

Ania I forgot that you were both from Poland.

I really don't know anything about Jerry's Polish roots and neither does he. He just knew his grandmother was a city girl and his grandfather came from the country

I found his grandfathers naturalization records and it said he was from Buro, Posnan Poland

Evening all.

Just put the girls to bed and hope to watch some TV with DH. This afternoon we took them to Pleasureland, an indoor fun park. All day it's been emoticon so we played Uno, Pictionary, though they are way too young and did some puzzles. The parents went away to Edinburgh, about an hour south of here, for a belated 20th Anniversary get-away. They don't have anyone who can look after the girls for 20 hours here, so I offered to do it as an anniversary present and also gave them the stay in the hotel, dinner and breakfast.
I know, it's an awfully long way, 12,000 miles to come an babysit granddaughters emoticon
In the morning we are taking them to a movie. Parents will be getting back for lunch.

Peggy - you probably know we also come from Poland. I come from the western part of Poland and so does DH.
BTW. Not sure if you know but the root of the word Siekierski - 'siekiera' means 'axe'.

Mary Anne - so glad you have your parents close by. Enjoy their company while you can. emoticon

Trudy - have fun with your friends. It's great that you don't sit at home on your own.

Mary - never heard of that supplement and doubt whether it really works and as Annie said 'doing exercise/watching what I was eating was the best'

Joyce - I am sorry for poor Aiyden and Andrea for what they had to go through and hopefully they won't have to repeat it too soon. It's lovely that your GD is considering naming her daughter after you. You must mean so much to them both. emoticon
I think the shower gift from you all will the the best that the couple will receive! emoticon

It's time to finish and join DH now. emoticon for now.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.
