Ann, I will be asking you how to organize group celebrations. I am planning a move , hopefully next year. I found a nice place to live. My husband and I will be in a single home in a retirement community. There is a big building where most of the people have apartments. But there are rooms for community activities. chris

Today I stop and think before putting anything into my mouth. HALT! Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?

Just a wee bit 'a hooch! emoticon It must have been a great party!

Today, I am getting caught up because I had medical tests last week. I came home from the stress tests very tired. It was a tough drive getting there, too.

Today I am helping a few other volunteers to decorate my buildings community room for Easter Sunday. We are having a Afternoon Get Together. Pot luck of munchies, from 2pm - 4pm. We usually only put on a pot luck dinner at Christmas and New Years Eve it is pot lock munchies with usually a punch to toast the New Year In, as most are staying close to home.

This last New Years I made a Fruity Rum Punch. It went over well. Everybody was asking how much booze did you put in the punch? Oh, just a wee bit but truth be known there was a 40 oz. bottle of Baracardi White Rum and 20 oz. bottle of Vodka and several other non alcohol fruit juices. It was all consumed by the end of the night!

We usually have pot luck munchies, for most celebrated calendar events through out the year. I am one of several volunteers, that organize and decorates for these social events in our building.

I hope you all are well and having a good day. It is almost February. Can you believe it! 2013 is long gone! Someone on Facebook said they still think of 1998 as 10 years ago. emoticon

My computer was acting up and I had to stop playing WWF with my sister. I will try again tomorrow.

I was using a program to keep my mind sharp (Lumosity) but I have gotten out of the habit. I hope my scores don't go down too far.

Our weather is cold but bearable. I especially hate grocery shopping when it is blustery. I have lucked out most weeks. I have been hitting the milder days.

I really should go outside and take a walk to finish my 10,000 steps on the activity tracker. I had to walk in the condo last night to finish up. I felt pretty stupid doing that. But I did work up a sweat and got my heart going. I was surprised.

Have a great evening! chris

Oh I can smell that bacon right now!

I fight with my electronics all the time. I am terrible at getting things just right--like the dumb machinery wants. It won't bend one bit! No mercy for me. I got a new printer and I want the fax to work. Well to get fax you have to connect a wire to the phone jack. BUT.. I have a wireless set up and putting the wire on does not comply with that! I know I should phone the cable company. But why does it have to be so complicated?

I was mad that my 4 year old printer would not work and they said I needed a new one.

Passwords drive me crazy. Not right, but I keep a file of passwords. If I don't forget it! I'd never be able to use anything.

I started taking garlic for my high blood pressure. I sure hope it works. My doctor will not be nice to me when I bring in my 2 week diary.

I can't wait to go to water aerobics tomorrow morning! I need that outlet so badly. Weekends are not my favorite. I feel stuck at home--with a disabled DH.

Not much happening in my world today. Fog most of the morning but the sun broke through by noon. I finally got my new printer working, not the printers fault, just my own frustration of replacing a Microsoft base computer to a Mac Pro notebook and then my old printer died. While I replaced the printer also bought a usb stick to transfer stuff from the old computer to the new one.

Printed out notice of Fire Alarm replacements and tacked the notice on every floor exit door and in the elevator.

I woke at 5:30 am this morning. First thing that enter my mind as I awoke was my forgotten password to my old computer. Removed my password from my old computer because will be taking it it to the electronics recycling depot.

Had bought a USB Stick to transfer files to my new computer only to have forgotten the password to my old computer. This getting old is not fun! Got my exercise for the day in very early! By the afternoon had an afternoon nap. I suppose I will be up most of the night. Hate t when I get my days and nights mixed up.

Yesterday I bought a microwave utensil for cooking bacon. It drains the fat away and only takes 1 minute per bacon slice. Oh, I know bacon is a dieter's NO, No but really who can live without a couple slices bacon in BLT sandwich once in awhile? Obviously not me!

All fine and dandy except it is 1/8 of inch too big for my microwave. My daughter has a family size microwave so she will be getting the bacon cooker! So good, don't have to return it to the store. So much for a crispy toasted BLT Sandwich!

We're good. Cold here and snow on the way. (Connecticut) I have been cooking emoticon quite a bit and that is unusual for me!

I just had salmon for lunch. What a treat. I bought 3 packages so I can freeze 2.

I made meatloaf with plenty of veggies inside. Hmmm!!! emoticon


I am trying to get geared up to start doing my taxes. Ugh! emoticon Each day goes by and I put it off--yet again.


Stay strong! chris emoticon

It was very cold emoticon here today and the morning arrived with a blanket of new snow. Pretty but it sort of messed up my day. emoticon My hubby's health aide called me from her car in front of our house. She said she had no boots (why???) and our driveway and walk were not cleared. Our condo does that. So she went home. Darn. I did email the condo administration about this. The walk was not cleared till almost noon. If I needed to get my husband out, I could not have done it. That is a dangerous situation.

So sorry, Ann, about your computer problems! I am struggling with my husband's computer now. It won't connect to the internet. He is not able to manage those kinds of things anymore and I get very frustrated because I just don't understand enough.

I got him a "Telecon." It is advertised in AARP . It has a big , bright touch screen and huge icons for everything. It is meant for older people.

Good luck with your new computer! chris emoticon

Still have to get downtown, to sign papers. The city has not cleared all the snow from the roads. Guess I will venture out by noon. It snowed all day yesterday. Looks like snow clouds looming over the mountain tops, this morning. I know I am a big chicken, when it comes to driving in the snow. Most places I walk but downtown is a good 6 miles away. Little too far to walk in below zero weather.

Well, to be honest I was the problem causing all my computer woes. Learning a new computer system is not fun! Switched to a Mac Pro. Nothing like learning something new when one is used to a entirely different set up and I hate to admit it but this golden oldie does not think as quick these days.

Today, having, problems with one person on the previous strata committee. He sends messages that I can not print out. Very frustrating. Everything he sends has AVG virus protection, which is stopping me from reading the attachments and printing out important condo documents, that I need to print off as the treasurer. I have emailed him but he chooses to ignore my plea's. Grrrr, I need to print the documents for council meeting at end of each month! I have opened file sharing as a group. He was the former treasurer. Some documents from the strata management company are time censored documents which means usually open in 4 hours or content will be removed. What the heck do they think I do? Sit at my computer 24/7? This is not a fun, I want to resign!

The Potluck dinner in my condo was a success with 30 people attending. I did make my dish ahead of time but could not stand let alone walk the day of the Potluck Dinner, because of lower back and hip pain from osteoporosis-arthritis flare up. Took a week to get back to normal.

Chris -I bought a new Mac Pro computer. I maybe absent for awhile longer as lost all my email contacts, due to Apple and Microsoft identities, can not merge. I will have to start all over again with an new identity on Spark People. The last time I was on SP I never signed out but this time, don't think this will work.

I will try to get back on the team as soon as possible.

Think I had a lot of emails before huh! When I switched computers, I was hit with over 600 emails! Course I just deleted everything. I am going bonkers, locked out of my new computer now.

ANNA,


You can stop emails from any team you want. You don't have to actually delete the team. Go to "Manage my Teams" You can do a search for that if you don't see it. It is on most pages.

I have been getting approxiamatly 20 emails a day from the spark team "Calling All Canadians" plus the other teams I belong to on Spark People brings my daily emails up to around 40 a day. It really cuts into my time, that I have been just deleting all the emails. I got so peeved off tonight, dropped out from, being a team member of the above mentioned team. Why, Why didn't I do that sooner? Must have a screw loose in my head! Hopefully this will bring the emails back to a normal pace and my respond time back to normal. Sheesh! emoticon

Went to watch my grand daughter at her ballet class. Then daughter, grand daughter and I went out for lunch. Well my daughter & I had brunch but grand daughter had her usual mac & cheese with celery sticks and cucumber slices on the side..

Did not check my mail for a few days but this morning I did. My passport arrived. Hope to go to Australia for 3 weeks in the spring of 2014.

Chris hope you are the mend. Some people have weaker resistance to weather changes.

I get the winter blues some days, especially this last week. It has been foggy all week from morning to night. Makes me wish for a change, I would settle for snow, at least when it snows everything looks so beautiful.

Ann, Glad you made your own appt. I miss many appts. I am notorious for that. My husband says I have to drive 20 miles for a haircut because no stylist in my town will take me anymore. That is not true. But I do drive 20 miles for the person I like the best.

I just hate feeling sick! I have lots of things that make me fatigued. If I had energy most of the time and fatigued once in awhile I think it would not get me down so much. But if I have a couple of days with energy I think it will continue. It makes me feel beaten down.

I actually got dressed. I am so proud of myself. I will probably end up back in bed soon. I took Tylenol and Musinex. Hot tea is next.

emoticon Chris ~ Maybe you caught the flu? It is that time of year. Flu shots are being advertised, to get your flu shot now.

I promised to drive my friend to the hospital at 9:30 am this morning, as she has the beginning of cataracts. When she finished with the doc, she was unsure if she should drive. The dumb thing is I thought my own doctor's appointment was for 2.50 pm. Wrong it was for 9:10 am. I was a wee late but they squeezed me in!

I was more concerned about my friend driving her car with droplets in her eyes, I must have conveniently got my appointment time, mixed up in my brain. Some days I think my brain is turning into jello! emoticon

I dunno Chris?
If the weather is anything like it is in the Okanagan, today, I'd opt for the nap!

I am soon on my way to have Thanksgiving Dinner at my daughter's place. Was in a garden center this afternoon. Picked up an air fern stuck inside a wee jack o lantern for my granddaughter, hope she likes it, if not I will gladly take it home.

I never took a picture of my planter with bull rushes in it. The glass bull rushes are all packed away till next season. Going to a hardware store or Wal-Mart, for some spring bulbs. The garden nursery was way too expensive for their bulbs.

Talk to ya soon, got to go have some turkey dinner.

3 glass bull rushes that light up in the dark.

Could you put up a photo of this. I have no idea what it is but it sounds interesting!

Did you mean horseradish as weeds or as something you grow that is invasive?

You would not find me planting garlic. It is so healthy but I can't get myself to like the taste.

I need to prune back some plants in the front of the condo. It is a very small area to have plants and I have things crammed in. This was the prettiest flower year since we moved in. It was totally rocks at first. I had my husband use his grabber to put them in a bucket as I dug them out. Now the soil is full of organic matter. I just realized a plant has disappeared. A friend gave it to us when we first moved in. Bugloss I think. I can visualize it but can't quite remember the name. Bluish-purple flowers om a crawling plant. It likes a damp area to grow well. The yellow day lilies she gave us are still there. I planted a huge daisy type mum plant. People are using these as bushes because they get so big. It is full of white daisy type flowers now. But if frost hits--well..... It blooms a bit late . I have a purple sage bush there/ It is really too big for this area. I put in taller things because hubby's ramp would hide anything short. Obviously smaller plants are more appropriate for the small area.
I guess I need tall , but compact flowers. I want color! Our condos are all gray and white so flowers show up well. I had annuals in pots but they painted the back deck and put all the heavy pots down under the deck. I wish they had put them back. They are too heavy for me to move!

I love the floors! I did not put all the furniture back and the boxes are mostly in the garage. The place looks bigger and so much cleaner--no dust at all. emoticon

emoticon Chris ~ Just think how great your floors will be once they are finished curing and useable! It will feel so nice. I never look back that is at any places I have moved from. Well that is a little white lie.......I always go back to look at my childhood home. to see if the fort us neighborhood girls built on the back edge of the property line has lasted the test of time it was about 5 years ago I was there and out All Girls Fort was still standing some 50 years later! emoticon

The home were I grew was on a acre lot. My mother had a special green thumb with plants. Unfortunately, all her gardens are gone, the house still stands and seems shrunken by the overwhelming surround of pavement, not a garden in sight. That was sad to see.

Today I am recuperating from yesterday's event. Attended the closing of the seasonal community garden. Paid for my plot for the next growing season. Spent 5 hours down in the garden, turning the soil so to get out any weeds or left over potatoes or other root veggies that may lie dormant over winter and emerge next spring as a nuisance. Especially the horseradish. Planted spring floral bulbs. Got some free garlic starter bulbs from a gardener that ended up with too many this year. Planted the garlic bulbs.

The city landscape workers were there pruning back the fruit trees. The garden committee ordered 5 large pizza's for our lunch and some fruit growers arrived with some fresh pears and apples. All and all it was a very enjoyable day.

I discovered last night I lost my cell phone. So made a call, to cancel any calls that may appear on my bill from an unknown person whom may try using my cell phone.

I have a half wine barrel on my deck, that I have 3 glass bull rushes that light up in the dark.
The manufacture of the outdoor lights, suggested, taking them in during the winter, as with minus 40 below zero the glass bull rushes could shatter from the cold. I hated to dismantle my floral but had no choice as the floral grew up and between the glass bull rushes and the spiky metal leaves of the light fixture..

I am having the floors refurbished. I am getting pretty tired of this process. It is about 6 days into this. We did it in two stages. DH is in a motorized wheelchair and it can't go on the new floor for a full 24 hours! At least I am 'jailed' only for 6 hours at any one time. Yesterday we stayed out all day. The last hour and a half we sat in the van,. He reclined and slept while I red magazines in the driver's seat. There is no front passenger seat and the back seat is just a long bench. We drove around the area all day and looked at the pretty scenery. Then we checked out our old house. I hate the way the people painted the outside. It was red with white windows and a narrow strip of black around each window. Oh-the house is red. Well, they put BROWN shutters on it. And they painted the garage door BROWN. Huh? I don't think they could have found an uglier color. And the front door now has a Japanese brown, wood pagoda thing over it. What were they thinking. It is a very large house so all this is right 'in your face.' Yuk!

We had to use up more hours so I stopped at a Feed and Grain themed store. It has a gift shop, pet paraphernalia, pet foods, plants, pumpkins, and ...... homemade ice cream.

It used to be a real feed and grain store when there were farms around. Now it is still called the Canton Creamery. Actually it is a big new building and the original is on a different road. The original has lots of character and is now a potting studio I think. The new huge building has not been divided in two areas. the second half now contains a discount wine/liquor store.
If I had not needed to use up time, I would not have gone in there. I want to avoid ice cream and nothing else in there is what I need. I did need the bathroom.....but there was no toilet paper and not even paper towels for hands. I think the rooms were newly put in and not quite finished but still!

I am really sick of this floor process. Did I say I am really sick of this floor process?

Feeling cold often is helped by increasing the humidity in the house. My furnace has an adjustment for that . And often I just boil down big pots of water on the stove, chris

Woke up this morning freezing, arose, turned on my furnace, while making some coffee.. Changed my summer sheets on my bed to those micro fiber plush ones. It sure is amazing how the weather has changed so quickly!

The annual plants on my decks are surviving but when the frost arrives, that will surely destroy them.

Chris I am still trying to figure out where to find your WWF on face book.

Had a busy day. Started off by going to the community garden. My friend gave some beans, broccoli, tomatoes and basil. Came home to prepared the basil for drying. Then I wash down all the deck furniture and put plastic tarps securely over everything, to keep future rain and snow off. Then I damp mopped two decks. Ate lunch.

The weather changed, to cold and windy. Decided it was a good day to clean out my closet and rearrange stuff. Getting ready for fall winter clothing to come out and put summer stuff away. Took a break to check out the shopping channel. Nothing caught my interest.

After dinner, did the old cleaning out of the fridge. Moved all the shelving around, as everything needed a good wipe down. So much for my boring day.

What a day! I never schedule too many things in a day because I usually just can't get it all done. I end up falling asleep just before and appointment or forgetting something important or whatever. Today I had 3 major things to go to. I did it all--not perfectly and not by being perfectly comfortable but I did it all. I came home and collapsed but I recuperated enough to be able to put (disabled) hubby to bed . And now I am playing Words with Friends and also using sparkpeople. So I guess the day did not wreck me!

getting help is not always the blessing we expect. I had 7 phone calls this morning about scheduling aides, nurses, PTs, OTs, doctor, mammogram, ......seven!

then the people started walking in the door.

I actually called 2 regulars and asked them NOT to come today! It is a good thing I did.

then about noon a social worker called! She actually came over about 2:30!

It was a very, very full day! chris

Hubby came home after 2 months! I cannot believe they kept him that long. when I took him to the emergency room, I thought he'd come home the same day!

He is much stronger now . He is not strong be any means but not a lump of jelly with bones inside like he was. For 7 years he has been either in bed or in a motorized wheelchair. Then he got a UTI and really got weak.

He is in good spirits and professionals come now to our house to keep his therapy going . It is much less exercise than in rehab but anything we can get is to the good.

Thanks for asking. I do appreciate all the comments and messages from my sparkpeople friends!!! emoticon emoticon CHRIS

I took the new health aide to visit my husband's rehab. They were wonderful teaching her his exercises. He has spent almost 2 months getting stronger. W don't want to lose what he has gained.I came home tired. It is emotional with lots of people to deal with. The PT was in his room with her assistant using a complicated lift machine to show our new aide. That is alot of people to interact! Then someone came in to make up his bed at the same time! Then the phone guy came and replaced the broken phone wire--after my husband's big wheelchair cut it in half. ! Then the floor person cam in! Then the other therapist came in to show us how to do his arm exercises! I could not believe how much activity was happening in his small room and the small hallway! After all that I wanted to leave and my husband kept thinking of things he needed. Finally I said I was exhausted and he should ask the aide when she brought his lunch. I was dripping wet from the exertions and humidity.

this long stay of DH at rehab is helping me so much. Yes, he wants to come home. At the meeting yesterday they said he has gotten lots stronger ! After 7 years at home he was declining. I say he became a lump. It was very hard even with a lift transferring him because his body was like jello.

I am so grateful for this period in rehab! Chris

An older fellow in my building, goes to Germany every year, for about 2 months. He was in a car accident, his niece was driving and is still in critical condition in intensive care.

The fellow came home from Germany earlier than usual. I ran into him yesterday, so stopped to chat with him for awhile. He said they were side swiped. He was in hospital in Germany for 3 weeks. He said they operated on him and replaced his crushed arm bones and his ribs with stainless steel inserts. Apparently in Germany there are no speed limits but many round abouts, which is suppose to slow vehicles down.

Life has been pretty strange lately. For one thing I am now playing WWF with a cousin of my husbands! I barely know this guy. I know his older brother more. The older brother played WWF with me a few times. then I found this guy asked me to play. So ....... that's the story. It is kind aneat. Eventuslly I will see him at a family gathering. cool!


Also I have been for 7 years caring for my DH after hhis stroke. I could not get any agencies to help me. I either do the tasks myself or pay someone. Since retiring I can't pay for as many hours as I did before.

Well- after his short hospital stay for a UTI, DH has been in rehab and will be there till Aug. 6th. Huh?

I needed a small amount of help before--and could not get it! But now they are paying for 24 hour care for almost 2 months including daily PT/OT. I do not at all undrstand this system.

Good for you Chris, with starting water aerobics best of all no stress on your body parts.

Had chest x ray done on my lungs yesterday after seeing my doctor. Results came back, have pneumonia in my lungs, my doctor placed a prescription with the pharmacy I deal with. BY 7pm the prescription was in my hands. Pills good for 7 days then have to have follow up with doctor. Had a full night sleep, first in weeks. What a great feeling this morning.

Well, thankfully Chris, there are ample supply to choose from, this gives you better choices.

Home Care Services has probably escalated in the last few years, while we are now entering the middle 1940 era of baby boomers, turning 65. Just goes to show you there are still younger people willing to earn a living in this very important area of health care.

I am interviewing health aides today. I need someone to help me care for my DH. Yesterday I interviewed 2 and today 3 people will be here. I am having a hard time scheduling them! Many more have called! I had no idea my ad would be seen by so many people who want such a job.

It's a beautiful, 80 degree day here on the Massachusetts south coast. I just finished a 4 mile walk.

How are you folks doing? I am feeling much better. I still visit my husband daily in Rehab. And yesterday I got to water aerobics. I stayed home today to get stuff done around here. Stuff is overwhelming me again. His Lifeline agency is calling by way of a recording. They check if he is OK. But...... they are saying our phone is not connected! I need to solve this problem.


My daughter was here and she called the phone company. they both made some arrangement and I don't understand it. she went back home and now stuff is messed up!

I wish I was quick with the modern tech equipment. I always seem to struggle with it.
I have been looking around for someone who can get me out of jams! right now my printer does not work. So, I fully understand the photo problems. I eventually get the job done but not as smoothly as I'd like!

Today was my granddaughter's 4th Birthday! Hurray the weather co-operated! My daughter rented a party room at a local motel. They charge $50.00 for kids birthdays for they whole afternoon. All the facilities are provided a heated indoor pool, an outdoor pool, an outdoor playground with numerous activities for the kids. Plus a gazebo with a long picnic bench was set up inside the gazebo. All, 12 kids and 6 adults, had a place to sit at the table. We brought our foods and drinks for the kids. They provided tea and coffee for free for the adults.

I took 26 pictures of the kids. Only one wee problem, new camera. I am having a tough time uploading them as email to be sent. Frustrating to say the least. Oh, something will click in my brain eventually to figure this out! In the mean time I have given up trying till my emotions cool down!

Well Chris, the Farmers market, where I live is called the Crafters & Farmers Market. Though for the Crafters they have to be juried in, so only the best products make into the market.

Food wise I bought some parsnips, farm fresh large eggs, a bottle of Okanagan Bee Keepers Honey and a loaf of bakery bread.

I also bought from a craft vendor 4 cloth bags made from a (polyester/nylon blend of fabric) very strong and lightweight, folds up to the size of a purse size tissue package.

One for my sis, one for my daughter, one for a friend and one for me. I could have sewn them myself but not for $10.00 for 4 of them. Considering the cost of thread, fabric and my time, why bother making them? Still a bit early for most produce, at the farmers market. late summer and early fall is the best time because all the Orchard owners are in with their fruits usually the wild mushroom guy is in late in the season too. The crafters reap the benefits of people traffic this time of year.

I bought a new car in November of last year. I took it in for a tune up as going down to the coast this month and dodn't want any car surprises on the 350 kilometer distance. The service person laughed, when he seen my mileage 300 kilometers. I felt really stupid! Needless to say, I don't drive much, I live in the center of the city, walking distance to all amenities even to the doctors office. I walk to most place even in the winter, but if the roads are icy I don't go anywhere!

When the weatherman predicts bad weather I scoot out and get extra groceries, before the storm hits.

Walking to the farmers market--wow it can't get healthier than that! I am so dependent on the car because things are never close to our house. Lucky you! What did you buy? Chris

Today it is 28 C or 82 F. Heading out for an 2 hour walk before it gets to hot.

Went to the Farmers Market yesterday. Walked there which is 1.5 miles and 1.5 miles home. I have small personal shopping cart. It is really handy to have on a walk to the farmers market. Love, love, getting my weekly veggies there!

WWF is the abbreviation of a game called "Words With Friends" on face book. It is played as a group or one on one. It can get addictive, as one is always checking their email to see if it is their turn to place a word on the scrabble board..

WWF here means Words With Friends. It is like Scrabble.


I think it also can mean World Wrestling Federation. emoticon

I go to my Facebook page and on the left is a list to pick from. One is WWF. I play often with my sister who is 400 miles away near Buffalo, NY. I have a couple of teacher friends I play with, too. And a cousin of my husband's also once in awhile shows up.

It is very easy to get hooked on this game and wile away hours! Chris
