Nola - paying bills - ugh - I am not jealous, but being out in the sunshine sweeping the patio and enjoying the hibiscus I am So glad to hear that Don is feeling better - I hope it continues. emoticon

Karen - how did the Dorothy pretzel go - I have been really lax lately and I really need to get back into a routine. I feel so much better when I do. emoticon Glad to hear that those shoes are all broken in.

Barb - I hope your day goes well as well as moms. I am sure Mr Spot has everything under control. Does he keep the nasty critters away. My dogs don't - there sure is something that has been enjoying my garden - may even be the dogs. Love how clean the yard looks when it is edged. emoticon

I had to run to the hardware store yesterday to buy a coworker a clock and I bought myself a cherry blossom bush - they were marked down and I just love them so hopefully it takes, So guess what I did last night - yep worked in my gardens. Pretty soon I will be running out of room for any more plants I do not what I am going to do - I am sure I will figure out emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Another beautiful day in the 70s. I've spent the morning outside sweeping and tidying the Patios, but at the moment procrastinating because i have to go on the computer and pay bills etc. The sun is still shining, I should be out there.

Barb I hope the sorting is getting there. I can see it must be better to bring stuff home than taking that time out at the Condo. Jason goes today so I guess you will be up at the crack of dawn (so what is new I hear you say). Tell Mr Spot he is doing a great job taking care of you whilst Jason is away. emoticon

Dorothy we grew all these hibiscus from cuttings. It is amazing how many varieties there all for all climates. I just love them. Our front yard is looking great already for Spring. this is Dons 3rd day of feeling good. So hope it keeps going. emoticon

Karen great idea getting in early for the Yoga. We need a photo of you doing the Dorothy pretzel emoticon

Off to pay bills. Hope your Thursday is a lovely one emoticon

Wednesday – Gorgeous weather day. Did get some things done outside (edging and trimming).

Mom had a very confused day. Definitely the meds. Have an appt. next week. I am positive it’s not the Namenda. I believe her other med needs to be adjusted. But praying it’s a calm day today.

Her carer is coming, so gotta scoot!

Nola: Yes, at least yobody will DARE disturb me there.

We have badgers here in WI that do that too. None here by me, and they’re vicious little buggers!

LOVE hibiscus. Lovely.

Dorothy: Yes, good thing for sure Mr. Spot is in charge. HEE HEE

Definitely having a NIGHT CAP OR TWO tonight! LOL

OH well, at least you had good weather for the golf last night!

Karen: Mr. Spot never needs practice being in charge. He thinks he is 24/7 anyhow! LOL

Yeah for broken in new shoes and yoga. Hope you liked the class.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Nola - my daughter and I just bought some hibiscus over the weekend - she got 2 and I got 1. We have to make sure we buy the hardy variety as we have harsh winters. I just love them.
I do love a sunny day spent in the garden. I am so glad to hear that Don is feeling better. emoticon

Karen - cute puzzle - too funny about the lady in the store - some people have no sense of humor. What a relief to go to the lawyer and to be able to start moving forward. emoticon

Barb - good thing that Mr Spot is on charge - I know everything will go smoothly now. emoticon I hope you have your night cap all ready emoticon

Deb - glad to hear that all is well in your world. I am taking Michael this weekend to finish up his school shopping. emoticon

If anyone is good at hiding in bathrooms it is my daughter - she sure knew how to get out of doing chores when she was younger - emoticon My golf game was way off last night but it sure was a beautiful night emoticon

Barb I know that bathroom hiding. Has come in handy a lot over my lifetime. Luckily it doesn't happen at all now. Lovely you are getting beautiful weather and are able to get your walks in and a bit of thinking alone time. emoticon

Karen the meercat puzzle is cute. Your poor cousin having badgers in his foundations. I have never heard of that before, but then again we don't have badgers in OZ, we do have wombats that do similar things though. Are the new shoes broken in yet or are you nursing blisters emoticon Hope the lawyer visit went well and you can start to do your donations.

Debbie great everything is falling into place and you are feeling good. Even better that your BF is feeling better. Is your Step daughter just starting school for the first time? emoticon

Dorothy are you up yet? What is on the agenda for today.?

I have just come in from all day in the garden. We have about 10 different Hibiscus that haven't been cut back for about 5 years and they were huge, so they had a big cutback and look a bit bare at the moment, hopefully we haven't killed them and they will shoot in the Spring. I feel all sunny and tired. It has been a beautiful day. emoticon

Tuesday – It was a gorgeous weather day. Got my early morning walk in. So did lots of others! Was a little surprised at the # of walkers, but it’s that time of year. Trying to suck in the good weather while it’s here.

Hoping the week is quiet as Jason will be gone from Thursday thru Sunday. BOO. But Mr. Spot will be the #1 in charge, with me not far behind, so that will work. HA HA

Dorothy: It is daunting going thru their lifetime of accumulations. Dad is really cranky about all this, and I don’t blame him. But the condo has to get cleared.

Have a good golf night!

Nola: Oh, I will hide out in the bathroom if I have to to re-gain sanity. What can I say. That is presuming I have sanity to begin with!

Glad to hear Don is feeling better. Hurray on that!

Good luck awaiting the blood test results.

Karen: good luck @ the lawyer meeting. At least no complaints @ the moment from your sib. What a pain!

OH gosh, thanks for the shoulder rub. Definitely needed after HOURS of sorting. LORD.

OH my gosh! I have to say, that is a really cute puzzle! Meer cats are adorable and they are so clannish!

Deb: Glad things are good despite being crazy. It’s hard getting back into the school routine! Glad the BF is feeling better.

busy morning with a lawyer meeting at 9am, looking like I will be able to start donations with the RX equipment and supplies going first. No communication from my sibling but I'm sure it will all be wrong later.

Nola I'll be thinking of you soaking up those two-days of sunrays emoticon emoticon

Barb sending a shoulder rub for more sorting emoticon emoticon

Dorothy great the cabin is ready and rented until the 30th emoticon emoticon


Elizabeth, Tricia, and Debbie keep up your PLAN emoticon emoticon

Here's a funny that happened
Yesterday, at the local Humane Society Thrift Store I found a puzzle that reminded me of my cousin back in Idaho who is killing varmints/ vicious badgers digging up his foundation.

when I told the checker about my cousin AND talk about a attitude change, I almost got walked out of the store.
I just e-mailed my cousin this picture of my new puzzle and think at least he'll get a laugh

Barb glad you are home safe and sound. It must be so emotionally draining for you. Sounds like Mr Spot will have to step up when Jason goes away. I hope you can get some "you" space even if only minutes. emoticon

Karen the SILs did not mention anything about their feuding, they just spoke together like civilised beings. I don't think they realise how it affects the rest of us. Fingers crossed it will last at least til Christmas. At this stage everyone is coming.
Yeahh on the Yoga. I love that. Have you done it before? emoticon
Definitely motivation is high on the list for Spring Cleaning. Actually vertical blinds are first on the cleaning list. They will need taking down and dunking . They are not my favourite thing. I'd rather have curtains. I am gradually changing them over. emoticon

Dorothy I bet your daughter was pleased with her garden. It will be great for you to see your hard work take shape. That is good having renters until the 30th. I hope you can do something nice instead of cleaning. Any wine shows around? emoticon Hope your golf game went well emoticon

Eliza yes my Grand kids are a nice lot. We are so lucky to have them and they are growing up so nice and caring. That is so good your Mom is independent. She is over 90 isn't she? emoticon

Don is feeling a lot better today and spent the day out in the garden. I hope he is on the mend. We see on Friday if there is anything still lurking around from the results of the blood tests, We have two beautiful days forecast and it will be in the garden for both of us soaking up the rays. emoticon

Barb I could not imagine going through my moms stuff and deciding what to keep and what to get rid of - emoticon I hope your weekend is somewhat calm - even with Jason going out of town.

Karen - you are a hoot!! Can't wait to hear all about your yoga class. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Eliza - it is nice to have an independent mom - mine is as well. I forgot to stop at her house yesterday - I will have to do so today.

I had to leave work yesterday early to clean the cabin and will have to do so again today - but the people arriving today are there until the 30th. emoticon Tonight is golf night and it is suppose to be beautiful emoticon emoticon ,

And Jas goes out of town on Thursday, so want to get things in order for that.

Nola: Lots of work yesterday – exhausted! Happy Spring cleaning!

Dorothy – yes, emotionally and physically! But it will pass.

Karen: Happy yoga’ing!

Eliza: Cherish that independence!

Nola - that is wonderful news - I am so glad that the SIL's are getting along. And what a wonderful day it must have been with all of the family - love the picture with the grandkids. emoticon .

.Karen - always a struggle - our weight is - but it sounds like you got it under control. I love red toe nails - I must get mine done soon again - they are looking ragged. emoticon

Barb - bet you are emotional and physically drained after your day at the condo - I hope it went well. emoticon

Our first project was to pull out 3 big bushes - we got 2 of them almost out when dear Son in law swooped in to save us and help us get them out - that was definitely physically exhausting. Putting in her new plants was a breeze and we got it weeded and feeded and peat moss put down so it looks fabulous and made the front of her house look so good. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Have just come back from the "big" shops where I did a big food shop. Hopefully it will last a loooonnng time. Not the most enjoyable part of my current job description. Also in the Mall is an absolutely yummy Vietnamese Patisserie that sells the best apple turnovers. So that was lunch emoticon lettuce leaves for our evening meal.

Barb I hope you had a restful night to get over your big day sorting and clearing, not to mention the trip there and back. Can you see the end in sight.? emoticon

Dorothy are you rested as well or do you have to go back to work to get a break. I bet your daughters garden is looking lovely. emoticon

Karen veggie sticks and spaghetti sound just the thing. We suffer from portion creep here plus I realise I have been eating more bread which makes my insides feel all bloated. I really have to get myself under control again. It is amazing how things creep in. I was so good when the weight was coming off and I was exercising regularly Perhaps when the sun comes out I will feel more like it (that sounds like an excuse) emoticon

Now that we know that the family are coming for our early Christmas I now have a focus to get stuck into early Spring cleaning and not have it all at the last minute. I hadn't realised that the feuding DILs were at the back of my mind all the time, I feel like a load has been lifted of my brain. emoticon

Sunday – well off to IL to hopefully finish the clear out of my parent’s condo. It is bitter sweet to be sure. **SIGH** But has to be done. Time for grieving later.

Took Mom and Dad out for super yesterday afternoon and Mom really enjoyed it. So it was a good time.

Ok, off and running!

Barb have a safe trip to IL. It would be good if it was the last trip. Wine will be waiting on your return ( for medicinal purposes of course) emoticon

Karen sad to hear of more fires. We have been seeing the CA ones on our news. Hope the smoke clears soon and the fires are out. I hate to think of all the little and big critters that are caught up in them. I can see those sparkling red toes from here. Yeeah on the new shoes. emoticon

Dorothy your DH is definitely a keeper. Great that he freed you up from the cabin cleaning. Did you get Melissa's garden fixed up? emoticon emoticon emoticon

I had a lovely day yesterday with the family. Amazingly the DILs were together for the first time in 3 years and were actually talking nicely to one another. Wonders will never cease. So I immediately told them to put Dec 4th in their phones for our early family Xmas here at our place like we always did, which had to be abandoned when the feud started. Hopefully nothing will happen between now and then. emoticon
Barney looked after Don and they had a good home day so all is well. emoticon

Saturday – not a good morning w/Mom but things evened out in the afternoon, thankfully.

Getting things ready so we can go to IL on Sunday. HOPING that’ll be the last trip, but realistically, could be one more.

Have a great Saturday!

Nola: What a lovely picture! Thanks for sharing. Lovely family!

Karen: Yes, I am glad we have till 26 Sept. Originally they wanted 26 JULY! SERIOUSLY! We’d have had 3 wks. to get everything done. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Glad you’re enjoying your new shoes. Hope that the fires and smoke clear!

We have two small firers but they are mostly down wind, those California firers are shutting down the main highways BAD

Saturday – not a good morning w/Mom but things evened out in the afternoon, thankfully.

Getting things ready so we can go to IL on Sunday. HOPING that’ll be the last trip, but realistically, could be one more.

Have a great Saturday!

Dorothy: That’s a great thing to do with shoes, or ANYTHING that you no longer have a use for! Donating to a safe house! I generally do Goodwill or St. Vincent DePaul.

Yes, I am looking forward to having the condo sale behind me.

For sure, car shopping is right up there with root canals and extractions!

Have fun gardening. Glad you got Michael to clean the cabin and mow.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Karen - I knew there were lots of brush fires in CA but not in Oregon - stay safe. I love new shoes but I have so many - I really need to go through them all emoticon I did donate some to the safe house - a home for abused women. emoticon

Barb - it will fill so good to have this project done and behind you - I agree with you on car shopping - its right up there with the dentist. emoticon

Nola - I hope you have lots of fun at your GS's birthday party and that Don and Barney enjoy there day at home.

I am headed to Melissa's house today to help her put in a garden - luckily she has a small yard. Mike is going to clean the cabin for me and mow emoticon

Friday – well, finalizing plans to go to my parents’ condo on Sunday. Hope to get all the things that my brother and I need to sort thru out of there so we can get things ready for the estate sale. Not looking forward to it but will be glad when it’s done and over.

Got lots of chores done yesterday. For that I’m grateful.

Carer due any moment so better scoot. TGIF!

Dorothy: YES YES YES. I think it’s a conspiracy for sure! LOL

Love Hostas. They spread quickly!

Nola: Glad to hear that Barney is weathering the storm. Good boy!

Oh goodness . .. . 21 . .. a milestone! Happy birthday to your Alex. So sad to hear that Don won’t be able to go, though. **SIGH** Sending healing vibes his way.

Karen: No this weekend we are headed down to IL to finish (or HOPEFULLY finish) clearing my parents’ condo). Probably won’t start car shopping till September. That will be mostly Jas’s job. I hate it!

Nola best wishes at the GS 21st B-Day sounds like a ~~~PARTY~~~
so sorry Don isn't feeling well enough to attended. Hope him and Barney enjoy their quiet time. Are you bring back cake????

Barb is it going to be a peaceful weekend or does the car shopping start? I noticed the moon this morning, does the full moon effect your mom or dad's mood? Sure makes me want to 'howl'

Dorothy HAPPY gardening.. Love the idea of you sharing your brothers memories and his plant is thriving emoticon emoticon The cabin must be rented and mowed emoticon


Elizabeth, Tricia and Debbie emoticon


OK back to Macy's for me and it will be by myself emoticon emoticon emoticon
I also seen the shoe store has some sales and I DO NEED new exercise shoes emoticon

Dorothy what a great idea to share your brothers hosta with your family. What a great memory to have. It is nice to think of you out in your garden again. Whats a fire stick?. I love the Roku, we still have basic satellite Foxtel it doesn't cost much at all and Don loves the National geographic channels. It costs heaps when you have the whole package though, we couldn't afford it. emoticon

Karen I love Roberts joke. I have heard it before also, but it always brings a smile emoticon

Barb hope the oil leak doesn't get worse.Good idea waiting til the 2017 models come out. They have huge sales here when the new models come out. It is hard to choose, good luck with that, I am glad it is you and not me. Barney seems to be coping with the storms so far, but we have always been there when they have been rumbling around. emoticon

Tomorrow is GS Alex 21st birthday and we are all getting together at his home for a family lunch. Sadly Don is not well enough to come so I am going by myself and Barney will be looking after Don. I just hope no one has the flu or anything that I will be bringing back to Don. That would be the last straw,

Have a good weekend emoticon

I got some of my gardening done last night and I mowed. I moved a huge hosta I have - I dug it up off of my brothers property when he passed and I just love it but it did not have enough space where I had it so I moved it. And I split a few roots for my daughter - she is getting ready to put in a garden. I also gave pieces to 2 of my other daughters so they all have a piece of there Uncles hosta. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Karen - I love that little joke - I had heard it before but it always makes e smile - kind of sounds like me emoticon emoticon

Barb - I think they are all in it together - It seems like a go to the dentist for a cleaning and all is fine -them something falls out - did they loosen it? You take the care in for a tune up just because and than afterwards something breaks - hmm.. Its a conspiracy I tell you emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nola - I hope all is well with you and Don - Barney too! emoticon emoticon

Thursday – Had a pretty good day yesterday. Started out rainy, but then the sun came out. That was nice! The weather wasn’t too hot either. And the humidity lessened despite the rain earlier.

Well, FRIDAY EVE. Wahoo.


Karen: Good on the books and getting in your walk-jog!

We have a paper/cardboard that Jas parks the car on. NOTHING go figure. No complaints, though!

BWAHAHHA! Good answer . .. me talking to the wine! emoticon

Nola: Oh no on the storms. Hope today is better!

Yes, whatever it takes to get rid of those bat wings! YIKES!

I keep thinking about that oil leak. NOTHING on the paper we have under the car (they put dye in the oil so we’d see it if there was a leak). I am wondering if they just didn’t tighten something on the oil pan OR were just trying to get Jas into panic mode and agree to something expensively unnecessary. We’ll see.

Regardless, I think Jas in in the new car mode (NOT MY THING FOR SURE). Promised him we could start looking in September when the 2016’s will be on discount because the 2017’s are already out. HATE shopping for new cars. Would rather have my fingernails pulled! Ok, that’s a little over dramatic, but I really hate it! LOL

How is Barney surviving the storms? Hope he does all right.

Dorothy: Always a good day when Jas is around.

Satellite, dish, cable . . . all ridiculously expensive to say the least!

Glad you, Don and Barney were buckled-in and rode through the storm safe

Barb hope the oil leak isn't spotting up your driveway. Thinking of you my friend emoticon


Dorothy that's the eating plan for me common sense and exercise. I'm impressed with your Yoga and getting into those tight positions emoticon emoticon


Elizabeth hope your day is a GREAT ONE emoticon


Tricia got word the BL list will be out August 30, I'm getting ready with measurements and before pictures emoticon emoticon I was explained by our old BLC Black Panthers, their are two different teams BLC and BL and BLC has a color associated with their name. Anyways thanks again for getting them to conform early I'm on the list

SECRETS TO A LONG HAPPY MARRIAGE

An old woman was sipping on a glass of wine while sitting on the patio with her husband, and she says, "I LOVE YOU so much. I don't know how I could ever live without you."

Her husband asks, "Is that you, or the wine talking?"

She replies, "It's me...talking to the wine." emoticon

Eliza - I am still sore from a yoga video I did 2 days ago - hmm - maybe I should use my tummy muscles more often. emoticon

Nola - I hope it is not a prelude too - I rather enjoyed our mild winter last year and would not mind more of the same. I do believe this is our last week of humidity - next week it is suppose to drop into the 70's and I do believe it will pretty much stay there. emoticon Glad to hear that Barney is coming along nicely.

Barb - I hope everything works out with Jason's car - it must have been nice to have him around. emoticon I hope it was a good day all the way around.

Karen - I find the smartest diet is just plain common sense and will power. I have enjoyed reading spark peoples diet books - it is just pretty much the same plan on the sight in a little more detail. Why does food have to be so tempting?? emoticon

I helped my neighbor get her roku set up yesterday - it is bye bye to her cable. I am getting rid of satellite next month - so tired of the ridiculous prices they charge. I am trying a roku and a fire stick.

Sorry I didn't make it yesterday. We just had horrible rolling storms all day with wild winds and rain. So we just kept a low profile until it was all over. It has been our coldest and wettest winter on record. Even had snow in our State a few times which is unheard of. I hope it is not a prelude to what your winter will be like.

Karen yeaah on the diet books out the door. I thought Barbs idea of using them for weights for the bat wings excellent emoticon Good you were able to get into the BLC. I hope you get into Tricias team.It is nice to think of you out and about riding and walk/jogging while the beautiful weather is on. emoticon

Dorothy that is great you can take time out to be with your daughter when she has her baby. I can see lots of cuddles happening. Sad the rain spoilt your golf game. Good you got out of it in time. emoticon

Barb YUK on the oil leak. I hope it is only small and does not need attention yet. I have one on my car but I am told it is OK for now. It is great Jason can work from home from time to time. Barney is coming on OK. I think we let him get away with a couple of things after the cone came off and we are pulling him back into line. It is good Mr Spot can still get a walk in even if it is a shorter one. emoticon

Debbie the Corning glass Museum sounds interesting. I love all things glass. Have lots around my home. emoticon

Eliza great on the video. You probably won't hurt as much the next time you do it. emoticon

Tricia great for you to pop in and know things are good with you. emoticon

Things are quiet here. I can't wait until the weather picks up and I can spend lots of time outside before the heat comes.

Have a good Thursday emoticon

Wednesday – Jason worked from home yesterday to get his oil changed. He found out that he may have a leak. So he has to take it back for a re-check after several hundred miles. HOPE it’s not a leak, but it isn’t a bad one if it is.

Otherwise, a quiet day.

Carer here shortly. We’ll see how THIS day goes.

Dorothy: glad you can take time off when your DD has the baby!

Too bad the skies opened up while you were golfing. Rained here, too, then the sun came out. Sun out earlier this morning and now back to rain.

Karen: Definitely having a glass of wine @ 3pm!

I am actually taking two long weekends in September - my daughter is going to be induced on the 20th of September and I will go say with her the following 2 weekends to help with the kids. Her husband works for Pepsi and his days off are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. emoticon

We only got half way through our golf game and the sky opened up. Luckily my partner had just checked her phone for radar so we just made it to my van when it let loose. emoticon emoticon

Tricia - sounds like you are going to keep Karen busy for the challenge - good luck to both of you. emoticon

Karen - how nice that Robert goes for a bike ride with you. emoticon

Barb - That is nice that Mr Spot still enjoys his walk. I hope mom has more good days than bad. emoticon ..

Nola - I am hoping to get out in my gardens after work today to do some tiding - I have not been out there for several days. I have been a busy girl! emoticon emoticon

Karen: In case you see this before you check your sparkmail, I heard from Gracie and YOU'RE IN and placed. She explained why your name didn't show up on the "registered list" I have been watching, it was on a list as a former BLC-er in a different place. The good news is that you're signed up and placed. I don't know what team you're placed with - the teams haven't been posted yet, so my fingers are still crossed! Happy report, aye? Work ahead for the both of us, right!!! My waistline is expanding and I'm so in need of a fix. I'd best be getting to work on that.

Tuesday – well, Mom was restless yesterday. Took a bit to get her settled down, but at least she wasn’t out of control!

Cloudy all day but no rain. I think today is supposed to be just a tad cooler. I’ll take it.

Dorothy: Hope the rain stops for you! We are due rain later tonight. We’ll see if it materializes!

Hope you get your golf in.

And I hope you find someone to clean the cabin on Saturday!

Nola: Yeah, Mr. Spot is my faithful buddy walking, but he only walks about 20 minutes now and I drop him off. He loves the walks, but at 1, doesn’t have the stamina he did. **SIGH**

How is Barney doing? Hope he’s minding his maners.

Tricia: HI THERE! Time does roll on . . . too quickly.

Mom has had fairly calm days, but not all! It’s a challenge. That’s for sure.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Just popping in to say hello!

Nola: I'm glad your computer isn't on the fritz, and I hope the storm heads another direction!

Karen: Shooty, shoot! I just checked the registration list and for some reason your name isn't on it - maybe a glitch in the system or something. Send a sparkmail to GRACIEC and tell her that you registered a couple of weeks ago, but your name isn't on the list. If you'd like, I can send her a sparkmail, too.

Dorothy: When you find someone to clean for you, send 'em my way please! Tomorrow I'm headed to my mom's house to clean out her old sewing room - which she turned into a storage room a few years ago. She is now wanting to make room in it for her computer and a bookcase.

Barb: It's crazy how fast the weeks roll by, isn't it! Hope you, your mom and your day have a good week this week.

Eliza: Clean floors feel so good! Enjoy those fruits and veggies!

Have a nice day, my one-fer friends!

Eliza I see your sparkling home emoticon Good your weather is a bit cooler.

Dorothy I hope the weather holds and you get a good golf game in emoticon

Karen how lovely to have Robert riding with you. It must be great to have the company. How far do you ride? emoticon

Barb I hope your Moms days are calm and you are having an easier week. It is good you still are able to have your mind clearing walks in the morning. Does mr Spot still walk with you? emoticon

The sun came out this afternoon and I was able to get out into the garden and do a bit of tidying up. Tomorrow we are on storm watch in the morning. I hope it goes around us.

Monday – here we go again! Carer here shortly. Got my day started with a quick walk and that was enough to clear the mind!

Nice day yesterday. Not much chilling, but not a super busy day. Grateful!

Hope the rain stops for you. Expecting rain every day this week.

Dorothy: Yes, fall is approaching here, too. DANG!

OMG . . . how time flies, eh!

Glad the rain held off till after your party. Oh boy.

Karen: Hope you get to bike!

Eliza: Sounds like a productive weekend!

Nola - your spring and our fall is fast approaching. The party was a wonderful time for all. So nice to see family and marvel how everyone's family has grown. It was nice to see my ex sister in law and reminisce how we were just 18, and then our children were just 18 and now her grandchildren are 18 - just crazy. Enjoy your grandsons 21st and I will be praying Don is well enough to attend.

Barb - we have had crazy storms here - luckily the rain held off for our party on Saturday but we are going on day 6 of on and off rain. From dry dry weather to wet wet weather. I hope mom has had better days.

Karen - it is amazing how much dirt a pot can hold. I hope you are enjoying your therapy - that is what it is for me.

I cleaned the cabin yesterday after everyone left - yes - I had my daughters for an extra night - it was fun - and I will have to clean it again tonight as they were just overnight guests. It should not be in too bad of shape.

Back on line today. it is not my computer luckily but the Provider stuffing around with the service they are supposed to be providing. emoticon

Barb I hope you got some chill out time yesterday, ready for your busy week. emoticon

Karen is your puzzle finished? Did you get into the Sparky Sparkoligists team?

Dorothy how was the picnic. Hope it was a success. It is great when the family get together. We have our GS Alex 21st birthday next Saturday. It is at our sons place about two hours away. If Don is not well enough I may sneak down on the train for a few hours.

Things are quiet here. It is raining again, but when we have a couple of stunning days like Sat. and Sun. you can fell Spring is not far away. emoticon

Sunday – Got mom and dad out yesterday. It rained in the morning, but the sun came out and it dried up. Not as hot as it has been but plenty warm and humid.

Going to be another busy week, so just going to try to take some time to chill today.

Nola: Hope the ‘puter troubles get solved1

Karen: Sounds like a good Sunday!

Dorothy: Hope you had a good Saturday.

Catch you later!

Saturday – less than stellar day with Mom. **SIGH** Hoping today will be a better day.

Less hot and humid, but still .. . enough to be uncomfortable! BUT Yes, as the old saying goes, there’s no place like home!
glad it’s the weekend.!

Dorothy: Yes, Dad doesn’t like it, but that’s a chore for HIM. . . I just wouldn’t want to end up tossing something that may not mean anything to me, but it does him.

Have fun w/your family picnic! Ah well, there always is a party pooper in the family. Your brother will regret it one day. **SIGH**

Nola: A little less hot ‘n’ steamy here, but not by much. Rained earlier and finally the sky is lightening up. PHEW

Karen: Thankfully I usually get a different attendant every time I pull up to donate! lOL

Here's my wishes for YOU

Nola enjoys more sunrays and a second cuppa in her paradise before the rain starts
I can feel those happy toes squirming in the sand. Is it pedicure time soon? Maybe a fun outing for a rainy day, did Don get the coupons for his toes? Now that would be fun to visualize both of you at the parlor emoticon emoticon emoticon


Barb my wish for you is your car is full of your dad's donation and Goodwill is thrilled to see her. Thanks emoticon you busy with the donations and clean-it-up bug has me ready with my shovel


Dorothy hope your family get-to-gather is filled with wonderful weather and lots of hugs and celebration. Happy 80th to your mom, 60th and 50th to your brothers, and for all the graduations. Maybe you can call your missing brother during the celebrations?

Hi to Elizabeth, Tricia, and Debbie emoticon


My flowerpots are in need of more dirt, they hold more then I thought, then it's something tall and colorful. Will see what's on sell

Also today, I'm working on my nails and exercising early before the heat.
Weighted in and it's a small vacation gain so I'm HAPPY with that

Have had a lovely day. The weather has been perfect. Beautiful and sunny. We sat out for our morning cuppa and soaked up the rays. Tomorrow it will be the same, then back to the wet for the rest of the week. I got stacks of washing done, dried, and put away and now have a tidy laundry which doesn't happen often. emoticon

Karen hope you had a lovely time in your garden. What is going in the flower pots? emoticon

Dorothy have a lovely family picnic. You all have a lot to celebrate. It will be your brothers loss not being there. emoticon That must have been a scary trip with the flash flooding emoticon

Barb great idea to involve your Dad in the sorting. Hope the weather settles down a bit and the hot and steamy disappears . emoticon

Barb - I like that rule - if not used within a year dump it. I got rid of two items that were taking up space in my kitchen but I have a ways to go and there is alot of stuff around here that does not get used. I do not blame you for not going through dads stuff - that will be a good chore for him.

Karen - it has been so hot here and the humidity is through the roof. At least the storms that are suppose to roll through today got pushed so it looks like it will not be too bad for our picnic. I was cleaning last night and the sweat was just rolling off of me.

Today is a family picnic that I have been trying to put together for about a year. My niece and my nephews wife di a lot of the planning for me - that was so nice. This is a big year for us - my mom will be 80 and my oldest brother will be 60 and my youngest brother will be 50. On top of the my moms first 2 great grandchildren have graduated. I think that calls for a celebration. Unfortunately my oldest brother is being a poop and has decided that he can not make it - did I mention that it was his 2 grandkids that graduated. I am trying not to let it upset me but.

Karen: It's a B-I-G job, isn't it! Lord. I have learned clearing out my parents' condo that I AM NOT GOING TO SAVE ANYTHING FOR MORE THAN A YEAR. If it's not used or needed within a year, it's GONE. OF course some things (like tax returns, etc.) have to be kept, but even those, you have to be sure to weed out the stuff no longer needed.

Friday – hot and steamy yesterday. Storms overnight. Supposed to be about 10 degrees cooler today. We’ll see if they’re right.

Carer due momentarily. So, off I go . . .

Nola: Yes, time doesn’t slow down, does it!

Yes, did my sorting. NOW it’s Dad’s turn to go thru what he wants to save or keep. He is not happy about it, but I’M not going to be the one to toss something he wanted to keep! He’ll just have to take his time.

Hope that the lab tests yield some answers for Don, though it sounds good that he’s feeling better. That’s a good sign!

That’s a great find to have wood already split and then it’s stacked for you! Kudos.

Dorothy: Oh my. Glad you were able to call your DH to fetch your son so you could avoid that flooded road. Yikes!

Glad you and your friends had a fun game night!

Yes, once Mom got thru it, she loves the perm. I am loving my shorter hair! Just have to adjust to it! Not a problem.

I had to run to the cabin and unlock it last night for my guests. I was going to stop at the store on the way but it started to rain like crazy. Then my son decided he wanted to come home from the fair so I headed for him - the road I decided to take was flooding - what a nightmare that was. Luckily I was able to get a hold of hubby and he went and got him. I headed up over a hill and when I came down the other side there was no flooding. Wow - what a difference. So when my girlfriend and I headed out we did not go the way it had been flooding so it took much longer to get there. And by the time we headed home everything was back to normal. Game night was a lot of fun but I am sure dragging this morning.

Karen - enjoy your new bead project - the recipe sounds delish - I may have to try it. Too funny about your umbrella emoticon

Nola - I hope its all good news with Dons blood. I bet Don and Barney are happy to be outside together. Wow - that is awesome to have someone deliver, split and stack.

Barb - I am loving my shorter hair as well. I am glad you were able to get mom calmed down. I bet she is loving her perm.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Friday and the end of the week. It has gone so fast!. When you get to my age it is definitely the slippery slope to you know where. emoticon

Karen how lovely to start another bead project. I hope we get some progress photos of it being done. Don't worry about the house work. When I have our house clean and tidy no one comes to visit, and when it is messy everyone turns up. emoticon Thanks for the recipe, looks easy and yummy emoticon

Barb so good the hair appointment went Ok. I can see how you would be loving the shorter cut in the humidity. Have you got all this load of sorting done? emoticon

Dorothy how was your games night?

Today I took Don for his Drs appointment and he has had a lot of blood taken for tests and to see where the mosquito virus' that he has are up to, and if there is anything else lurking about. It could be a couple of weeks before we get the results of the mosquito virus' as they go to a special laboratory. Don is feeling a lot better and is now starting to potter around the garden. Barney is happy about that as he is right behind him at all times when he is outside.

Also had a trailer load of wood delivered. Have found this great lady who brings it split and stacks it in the shed and still affordable. This should keep us cosy for the rest of the winter. emoticon

Don"t forget weigh in day for the Challenge emoticon

Thursday – long day yesterday. Took Mom to get a perm and I got a haircut. The haircut turned out well. Mom did ok w/the permanent process, but was really agitated towards the end. Got her calmed down and her perm turned out well, too. Thank goodness.

Hot and humid! Glad for the shorter hair!

Dorothy: Hope you can work w/your hair do either.

Enjoy your game night!

Nola: Def the brother knows who is boss. LOL He doesn’t try to manipulate big sis! Nopers.

Hope Barney is a happy baby w/o his cone.

Karen: Wow, another bead project! Sounds fun.

Nola sounds like Barney has recovered if he is back to playing ball. LOL I hear you on the 'usual stuff like washing and sweeping' that's my plan for my day.

But, I am planning another bead project, this one will be 4x the size, go in the spare bedroom, and be mostly blue and brown. I am hopeful this will help me jump out of bed to work on it, unlike the house work DOESN'T
emoticon

Barb hope the perm appointment went well and your all fixed up too emoticon I'm thinking of you emoticon


Dorothy hope your game night is a blast and not to late. Remember it's an early morning for work emoticon My big umbrella wouldn't fit through the tunnels and the wind finished it off right after that picture. I'll be looking for a small one

Karen welcome back. Thanks for the pictures. You look like you are having a lovely time. I think I would be leaving the weighing for a few days until the yummies had time to go. emoticon

Dorothy I bet you are looking spic all cut and coloured. I had a paper round when I was a kid as well. It is great being out in the early morning particularly in the summer. Have fun at your game night. emoticon

Barb good your brother knows who is boss even if they are pint sized emoticon I hope your Mom enjoyed her hairdressing adventure without drama and you as well. She will feel so pampered.

Had a quiet day today. Played with Barney a bit perfecting his ball fetching, (he hadn't been able to play much with the cone on) plus the usual stuff like washing and sweeping the patios.

Have a great Thursday everyone emoticon

Karen - I loved the pictures - especially the one with your parasol. It looks like you had tons of fun. And how wonderful to be rejuvenated.

Barb - I went to the beauty shop as well and had my hair colored and cut short. Hopefully I will be able to do something with it today. I had a paper route as a child and again recently but gave it up a couple of years ago - but I actually enjoy being out in the morning delivering them.

Tonight I am going to a game night with my friend - we are filling in for wo girls who can not make it but it is going to make for a long night.

Wednesday – Pretty decent day yesterday. Sorted thru lots. Lord, I think GoodWill is going to be sick of seeing my face! LOL

Today’s adventure is getting my hair cut and Mom’s hair permed. Hoping she has a good day.

Warm and humid.

Donna: Well, the brother unit can be a pain in the poop, but we are seeing eye-to-eye on these issues, which is a blessing! I think he knows me well enough to realize that big sis here is a pit bull and if something has to go a certain way, it will! HEE HEE

Hope for good luck going to the salon too. Mom is usually pretty cooperative!

Wow! Delivering papers brings me back to my youth! Did that for 3 yrs. w/my brothers.

Karen: Glad you had a good trip! And are rejuvenated!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Nola glad to see your feeling better and Barney is cone free emoticon How is Don today?

Barb good to see your caring for yourself and your brother is 'on board'

Dorothy sorry to see the cancelation on the cabin guests and your brother. The family picnic sounds like a wonderful time.

Elizabeth always GREAT TO SEE YOU

Tricia I'm registered and hope to be on your Spicy Sparkologist team emoticon



My trip was fun, relaxing, and rejuvenating.
We had 4 trains running around the Montana farm track. The air quality was a little smoky but light rain helped on day 2.

I'm not weighing myself for a few days to let all those potato chips and muffins get worked off. My lips are still chapped from all the salt.

Today, it's BQ hamburgers and ice tea emoticon

Barb - be glad you and your brother see eye to eye - I am thinking my brothers are big poops! I should not let things bothers me but not happy with them and there selfishness. I hope all went well at the beauty parlor and that you and mom are looking spiffy - I am headed tonight after work.

Nola - I am so happy for Barney - but I bet he is happier. Yes - my golf partner is back and it was a nice evening although the humidity was very high.

I delivered papers for Michael this morning and got a 3 mile walk in - he is staying at the fair the rest of the week and or course it is suppose to rain. We need it so bad but the timing sucks.

Nola: Hurray for Barney! If Mr. Spot was there, he’d run around w/Barney!

OH thankfully, my brother and I are pretty no-nonsense types, so things went fairly smoothly.

Catch up w/you ladies later! HUGS

Wednesday and still raining. Barney is one happy pup buzzing around free of "the cone"

Barb so good you were able to quickly move some of the things on without any "should we keep it, or shouldn't we". Good Will will appreciate the things.

Dorothy I hope the golf went well. Have you your old partner back again? I love wood fires as well and the extra mess is well and truly worth it.

Went food shopping after the Vet. so we are all stocked up again.

Have a lovely Wednesday emoticon

Tuesday – LONG day yesterday sorting thru what was brought home. Have already made three trips to Good Will. PHEW.

Dad goes to the dentist AGAIN today for “fine tuning of his bridge. HOPE this is the end of it!

Weather was very nice today . . . not too hot, not too humid. Grateful!

Nola: Glad the car is back in commission!

I am not sure if we’re going to be able to go this weekend or next. But definitely have at least one more trip to make.

Bet Barney will celebrate when he’s “de-coned!” Mr. Spot rolled around and ran around!

Dorothy: Yes I’ve got my task list good to go and brother knows that, too. So far, cooperative!

It has for sure been a fast summer! Have fun golfing!

Barb - yea for getting in the first step of getting it cleaned out. And it probably helped you to know hat else needs to be done.

Nola- Yea for Barney getting his cone off tomorrow - he will not know what to do with himself. Yes indeed those wood stoves are messy. But the fire is so nice. And nice to know that te car is serviced as well.

Tonight is golf - it is so hard to believe that golf season is winding down and school will starting back up soon. It goes by much too fast.

Tuesday the car is serviced and back home again and paid for. One more sleep and Barney has his cone off and stitches out. So all is good.

Barb good you had a productive day. It is great you feel you have accomplished something. I bet you were pooped when you got back home. Are you going again next weekend?

Dorothy not good guests cancelling at the last minute. At least the cabin is ready for the next person. Your family picnic sounds good. Isn't it always the way that someone decides they can't come. emoticon

It is has been house taming today. mainly washing floors and vacuuming. The only downside of wood fires is they can be messy. emoticon

Monday – met up w/my brother and his significant other @ my parent’s condo @ 11 am yesterday morning and didn’t leave till 5 pm. LONG day. Still lots to go, but feel good about what we accomplished.

Nola: Poor Barney. He’ll be back to himself.

Good luck to Don with his appointment and hope the car gets serviced quickly.

Dorothy: Hope your family picnic materializes.

Sorry your guest cancelled. Guess it happens.

Barb - I hope all went well for you yesterday - such a big chore.

Nola - poor Barney - hopefully he will be all happy on Wednesday. I hope the Drs get some answers for Don as well. Yea for good servicemen!!

I do so cherish my time with my son.

I have been trying to put together a family picnic for a year now - my mom is turning 80, my bother 60 and another brother 50. Also my mothers first two great grandchildren have graduated - lots to celebrate - and now my oldest brother is telling me he may not make it - oh well - it is what it is.

And yesterday while cleaning for my guest that was to arrive at 3 cancelled on me at 1. Was just not a real good day.

Monday already and it is wet here. Spending the afternoon on the computer catching up on my family history. That is between Barney cuddles. He has gone all sad and quiet as though the cone is finally just too much. Luckily he only has to go to Wednesday 10 am and then the Vet will take his stitches out. It can't come soon enough emoticon

Barb I hope you are home safely and your trip to IL went well. I have been thinking of you.

Dorothy isn't it great that Michael still loves doing things with you. Cherish the moments. When sons grow up and get their own families it is never the same.

Things are quiet here. Have made an appointment for Don with his GP for Friday. Hopefully he will run some blood tests to see what is going on with him. My car goes in for a service tomorrow. We have a great guy who owns the business and when Don is not driving comes and picks the car up and delivers it back at no extra charge. emoticon

emoticon Nola - always need a cuppa emoticon I am glad you are feeling better. I do love our reviews but the bad ones are hard to take - I always take them very personal. Luckily there are not many. They will not let you see a review until you write a review bout that person - very smart.

Barb - who do you have staying with mom and dad?? It is probably wiser not taking them - I have a feeling one or both of them would have a melt down. I will be thinking of you - good luck.

Michael and I went to the moves yesterday - Love when he likes going to the movies with his mom. I also got my shopping done and lunch made - Got the sheets changed on my bed. But hubby decided to take a nap so that stopped the upstairs work - sigh!

Sunday today and I am feeling as though I am on the mend. 2 quiet days helped and I'll have another today just doing the basics.

Barb thinking of you today as you go to IL. Without your Mom and Dad there you will probably get through stuff faster. Travel safely. emoticon

Dorothy I had another peek at your cabin on AirBnB last night. What great reviews people have left. The blueberries even got a mention. How great you can use company vehicles. Being able to get such large loads would be good. Do you have to spread the gravel ? Is that your weekend fitness schedule ?

Have just made a cuppa? emoticon Anyone want/need one?

Saturday – yesterday was a relatively tame day. PHEW . . . and shhhh! I dare NOT say that tooo loudly.

Mom had a pretty good day. Is really into the coloring now. It is a good de-stresser for her.

Getting ready for our trip to IL tomorrow. NOT looking forward to it, but has to be done.

Dorothy: Oh, unfortunately Mom and Dad aren’t coming with. They could never make it up the stairs to their condo. So it is up to the brother, his significant other, Jason and I to go thru it. I will bring things back that I can for Dad to sort thru. It is going to be mind bending!

OH boy, at least you got to use the truck for the gravel!

Nola: Hope you're feeling better!

Nola - they have been planted all over our property - there were lots there when we bought it and hubby has planted more. This is a bumper year for them. We have been very lucky with the people we rent to - they have been very good. But the company that I work through screens everyone and everyone rates each other - so that helps.

Barb - it will be very hard going through everything. I hope your mom is up to the task - and your father as well. We got some rain last night as well but it certainly did not break the humidity - it is so humid in the house this morning.

Eliza - hope you got all of your errands run - I have to run mine today.

I had planned on running errands last night but I ended up borrowing our company's dump truck. Hubby wanted to get a load of gravel for his friend. And they have really clamped down on who drives the company's vehicles so I had to do all of the driving but I made hime do the backing up and dumping. It took most of the evening.
