Tuesday – Still waiting to hear how my Uncle is doing. Had exploratory surgery yesterday (he’s Mom’s eldest brother – 91).

Supposed to be a little cooler today. Not so far!

Nola: Sorry to hear Don is down for the count. Hope he feels better soon!

So very glad to hear Wendy’s update! I worry about her! Glad that the dialysis is going well, but boo on the hernia op. Glad things are moving forward for her in re: the kidney transplant. Pass on hugs to her if you hear from her again!

Poor Barney. He will be an unhappy boy for awhile, but then it’ll all be in the past.

Dorothy: A little cooler and a little less muggy here, too, but no rain. We do need it. Just not w/storms!

Boy, I’ll 2nd that motion . . . do NOT know what a quiet week looks like!

Karen: Dorothy is right . . . keep on stirring that pot and keep that sister unit on her toes. **SIGH**

Glad you’re feeling some better. Very sorry to hear of the fires, though. Definitely not good for COPD.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Karen - glad to hear that the ribs are starting to heal. You keep on stirring that pot emoticon and keep your sister on her toes.

Deb - glad to hear from you and it sounds like you are doing well - hope your boyfriend is as well.

Nola - that little Barney must keep you on your toes - maybe the snipping with calm him a bit. My black lab is still a stinker and is must be 8. I hope Don feels better soon. I am sure you are taking real good care of him. emoticon

Barb - we had thunderstorms yesterday - and it got real steamy afterwards but I think it is suppose o be cooler and less muggy today - just in time for golf emoticon emoticon

I laugh at myself when I think this is a quiet week because I realized that Mondays I always go to the nutritionist, Tuesdays I golf and Wednesday is allergy shot day - not sure what a quiet week looks like!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serinity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Debbie emoticon you haven't increased your weight while you are going through a stressful time. I hope your BF gets better and the worst is past. Nice to have you pop in emoticon

Karen Barney is doing well. He is very vocal and has a bit of attitude. He goes to the Vet for his "snip" next Monday so that will slow him down for a few days. Don is not so good the Ross River Virus has come again, but he will get there, in the meantime I am the chief cook and bottle washer around the place. Hope you are resting up to get rid of your sore ribs before your August vacation. emoticon

Barb that is hard when there is no respite from the heat at night. You feel like a washed out tea towel the next day. emoticon

Dorothy your daughter will love having you help her make her front garden. Sounds like your weekend was perfect. emoticon

Have been food shopping, took Don to the dentist to have his new plate adjusted, sat out in the sun for a cuppa and to catch some rays, and just puddled around today.

BTW I heard from Wendy at the weekend. I hadn't heard anything for ages. Her dialysis is going well and she is able to do it at home. In the next couple of months she is going into hospital for a hernia op and an apronectomy . This is all to get her body ready for a Kidney transplant, which at one time they said she could never have. I am so proud of her she has come so far. She is doing a lot of volunteer work with the Salvos, so it is great that she has that support as well.

Have a lovely Tuesday emoticon

HI! Sorry I have been MIA again! I'm doing good with my eating but my scale is not budging. My boyfriend has been in the hospital twice during the month of July - so it has been a very stressful time - I'm just glad the number is not climbing on the scale. I'm holding steady. Hope everything get back under control and I can get back on track taking care of myself!

Talk to you soon,

Debbie

Monday – it was HOT again yesterday. Promising a bit cooler today. Doesn’t look like Mother Nature is going to deliver on that one. We’ll see.

Busy Monday, as always. Carer will be here shortly.

Nola: Wahoo on the pedi! Nice, aren’t they!

Karen: Yup, I”ll take that bucket of ice for sure!

Glad the ribs are feeling a little better.

Dorothy: Not cooling off much @ night the last couple of nights, but it should tonight.

Glad to hear that your DD;s house is so nice.

Blueberries, yummo!

Nola I see you dancing with those pretty 'happy feet' emoticon emoticon and without the laughing and squirming
How's Don and Barney doing?

Barb looks like more heat and humidity, not good So sending a bucket of ice emoticon

Dorothy like your daughters new home, our neighbor has their garden in the front yard. It is cute too. Glad you are able to help with the move. Is this the daughter that moved to Oregon for awhile?

Elizabeth are we enjoying those clean windows or onto another chore emoticon emoticon sending a bucket of Love your way emoticon emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

This rib injury is a first for me but after yesterday's day of rest I do feel a 3rd better. I did rest in our bed most of the night emoticon

It's time to stirrup my sister again, it's been over 30days and she needs to get her 'want list' to the lawyer. Hope to talk to the lawyer by phone / not by appointment. DH really wants to start moving this stuff out of our house.
We might be able to give the Hoyer lift to Larry our paralyzed neighbor

Might rest a little more today emoticon or just move real slow emoticon

Nola -I love pedis - it is so worth the papering to have happy toes!

Barb - it is so humid here as well. It has been cooling off at night but last night we did not get much of a break. We are suppose to get rain today so hopefully that will help - it is quite exhausting. It has been such a dry summer that our poor well is struggling at the cabin.

Eliza - which church did you end up going to? Nothing better than clean sparkly windows.

Karen - your take it easy day sounds like my take it easy day - lol. Yesterday was my really easy day - I worked in the yard a bit before I got ready to head to Buffalo. But we stayed inside there because of the heat so did not get in my usual 10,000 steps in yesterday and I was too tired to worry about it when I got home.

My daughters new home is super cute and perfect for her. I will probably go help her with her garden out front.

This should be a quiet week for me - yea - I think I will pick some blueberries.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Barb hope the humidity has eased off. I don't mind how hot it gets but humidity does get me down. Luckily we don't have much here. I hope this week goes smoothly for you emoticon

Karen it is amazing how cars seem to be pre programmed for Thrift shops and Yard sales. emoticon Did you find any treasures? 3 hours of chores sounds like someone taking it easy emoticon

Eliza nothing like sparkling windows to brighten a place up. Glad your Mom is doing OK. She must love having you stop by. emoticon

Dorothy hope you had a lovely time in Buffalo. emoticon

I am floating on air. I had my first pedi this morning. It was better than I thought it would be, plus now I am older I am not as ticklish as I used to be . In fact I am quite looking forward to my next one in 8 weeks time, emoticon

Nola: Yes, the cataracts are not good news for Mr. Spot but they treat it much like in humans, so should he need the surgery, that would fix the problem.

SHHHHH . . . won’t tell Barney about Mr. Spot’s sleeping arrangements! LOL

Dorothy: Hope you had safe travels and enjoyed seeing your DD’s new house. AND your grandkids, of course!

Eliza: Glad your Mom is doing. At a certain point, that’s the best thing!

Karen - yikes - can you hold a pillow when you cough - it may help. Those allergy coughs are the pits. Something in the air has certainly been getting to me - I itch everywhere.

Barb - I am so glad that dad did well at his dental appointment and it helped with his chewing. And kudos for mom enjoying going to the grocery store. A good day all around.

It has been very hot here - the mornings are cool but it warms up quickly.

Headed to Buffalo today to see my youngest daughters new house and then to my other daughters for my grandsons birthday party. My mom and Michael are going with me. Should be a good day.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Barb I knew Mr Spot would have his special place where he was safe at night. Just don't let him send any messages to Barney telling him how good it is. The night we spent in the RV we all shared and that was quite successful. Great his eye is good. Sad he is getting cataracts. emoticon
That was lovely your Mom enjoyed her shopping outing and your Dads teeth being finished should help him with his chewing.

Hope you are keeping cool and the storms are staying away.

Karen not good the allergies and coughing especially with sore ribs. When do you go away for your August adventure emoticon Did Buddy chase any squirrels today emoticon

Dorothy did you get to your Grandsons birthday and see the new house?

It was a lovely sunny day here and I spent it sweeping up outside and tidying the garden. A nice day!

Saturday – well drove Dad to his appointment and it went well. He is able to chew much better. PHEW I think this will help him get better nutrition.

Mom and I went to the grocery store while he was in w/the dentist. That was a good outing for Mom! She enjoyed it! That made ME happy.

Hot and humid, continues. OH well. Wish we could save the heat for when the winter cold comes!


Nola: Glad you got the wood AND it was stacked for you. PHEW.

OH yes, Mr. Spot has always been in the bed (I know, I know . . . lots of information says not to, but he is a good boy and just wants to be with us. SOFTIES we are!) His eye is back to 100% , thank goodness, though he does have beginning cataracts in both eyes.

Mom did BEAUTIFULLY @ the store . . . I am so happy about that!

OH lord, bombarded with politics doesn’t even begin to cover it. ‘Nuff said on that one. OY

Dorothy: I know. It is unvelievable that tragedies like this just keep on happening! UGH

It is sweltering out here now, but we did have some rain last night. Not a lot and not a storm. WE had major storms the night before, though.

Karen: Oh lord, coughing and rib problems do NOT play nicely together. **SIGH** So sorry.

So sad - more tragedy in the news yesterday - will it ever stop?? emoticon

Nola - yes politics are ridiculous here - its like a 3 ring circus!! How lucky they put it in the shed for you - did you give them the eye?? emoticon

Barb - so sorry your plans fell through for the weekend. I hope mom cooperated with the need grocery shopping and that dads dental appointment went well. Sounds like you need to sit at the beach and listen to the waves. emoticon We had the crazy thunbder storms yesterday morning. emoticon

Karen - look at those eyes. Actually my daughter was taught to carry treats in her pocket - and when they start to respond to something you say there name and give them a treat - it seems to work, emoticon

Eliza - are you staying cool in this heat??

I am going to walk to the farmers market this morning and then I am going birthday shopping this afternoon for my grand daughter and grand son. Tomorrow I will be heading to Buffalo for my grand sons birthday party and hopefully to see my daughters new house.

Wood finally arrived at Midday today and it was even packed in the shed for us. I think they may have been feeling a bit guilty, they usually just dump it and we have to get it into the shed. emoticon

Barb poor Mr Spot and the storms. Did you let him share your bed? How is he now? is his eye all better? emoticon Good news on your Dads scan. How did your Mom go at the shops?

Karen love Buddy. I think he has your number. Those eyes would make you melt. Perhaps you need a pocket full of good behaviour treats. He probably senses you are on high alert waiting for his next encounter as well. Have fun with him. emoticon

Eliza does Pancho go to the shops with you as well? Is it starting to cool down at all? How is your hot water going. is it connected yet? emoticon

Dorothy are you having a break this weekend? Feet up sitting around a campfire somewhere? Enjoy.......... emoticon

We are getting bombarded with your politics. I hate to think if it is like this here what it must be like over there. emoticon

Friday – got my walk in early. Going to be a busy day.

Carer will be here shortly. Then it’s off to the dentist around 10:30 am. THIS TIME I’M DRIVING DAD and Mom will have to come with us. This will be a long appointment so hope to get the shopping done that I couldn’t yesterday and get Mom to walk w/the cart.

Major storms in the area last night. Poor Mr. Spot was NOT a happy camper.

Dorothy: Yes, he just showed them to me yesterday. There was nothing abnormal, outside of the “pouches” they saw on his swallow study, and he had speech therapy for that in the winter. That seems to be doing well. HE NEEDS TO EAT. I told him that to me it is dentally related. So, as it were, he had his dental appt. today. Feels he can chew much better. I think this will help a lot.

As for my uncle, all I can do is pray. *SIGH* It is discouraging.

Karen: Hope your ribs are feeling better.’ Definitely medicinal sipping in order!

Oh boy. Buddy better be a good boy!

Brother is tending to the condo, though we do have to get down there to sort thru stuff. Was going to be this weekend, but that’s a wash because other things have come up. **SIGH** Just wanna stop the world for a day or two.

Sorry about the wood appointment. It’s like that here, too. YOUR time is value-less, but if WE miss an appointment. . .. not acceptable. GRRrrrrr.

Eliza Yeah for walking!

Yesterday, I had a few hours were I felt better then again NOT so much.
It was hot when Buddy and I walked and we didn't see any other animals so all was well. Buddy is always on 'high alert' waiting for his next encounter. He is nice a first then starts the Pitbull #%*!

Here's a picture of me asking him for some understanding and him telling me 'what ever'

Thanks for remembering our Spark Birthday Barb. 3 years Happy Birthday to us emoticon

Karen how are the ribs today? Did you talk to Buddy today? Does he come when called or give you the Furry finger emoticon

Barb how much more can happen in your life. So sad it is your Uncle now. When is your brother coming for your break or is he flat out getting the Condo ready. I am sure a little glass of wine (for medicinal purposes of course) will help a lot emoticon

Dorothy you are buzzing around getting everything done. I hope you get a bit of rain to give you a break from watering. How are your vegetables doing? emoticon

Have had a frustrating day waiting for a load of fire wood to arrive. Supposed to be here at 9 a.m. still not here at 6pm when we got a message it would be here tomorrow. People think just because you are retired that you are sitting here twiddling your thumbs. emoticon

Barb - we do what we have t do - especially when it help's to get rid of the tension. I am so sorry to hear about your Uncle - does it ever end.?? Did you ever get your dad's test results back??

Karen - slow and easy - I am sure a choke collar would help. But it would not help the ribs.

Cabin cleaned emoticon
Mowing done emoticon
blueberries picked emoticon
dishes washed and laundry as well emoticon
gardens watered emoticon

Busy girl last night . It is suppose to rain today so that would be a nice break from watering.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Thursday – Ok, now I am just freaking. Talked with my Uncle Joe last night (Mom’s youngest brother, Lynn’s husband). He told me that my other Uncle, Bob (Mom’s oldest brother) is going to have exploratory surgery for a suspicious lung mass. Are you serious????? SERIOUSLY????? I am just in shock. Absolutely in shock. I cannot say anything to my Uncle Bob because HE has not said anything to me. I am ready for . . . a . . . break. SERIOUSLY!

Hot and humid here. Heat advisory till tomorrow.

OHhhhh. . . hey ladies. Do you know what today is?????????????????????????? It is the (I thnk) 3rd Sparkversary for our little group! HURRAY. Go forth and celebrate!

Karen: Hope that your ribs are feeling better and that Buddy is a little better behaved. **SIGH**

Nola: OMG . . . yes. Male Selective Hearing. Rampant here.

Hope the rain stops for you!

Glad at least Cheyenne and you got to have a short visit.

Dorothy: Yes, the last 2 nights I have had a little glass. NOT LIKE ME, but hey, we do what we have to do, right!?!

Nola thanks for not making me laugh emoticon
I'm moving slow and sideways DH said since I can't cook breakfast we will go out.
I'm thinking of you soaked with your warm downpour. Love thinking of Miss Cheyenne and you driving around Perth

Barb hope the night was a quite one, is it full moon? I didn't move last night to see emoticon

Dorothy so your cleaning around your guests and keeping everything in order emoticon
Our last little motel, in a one horse town was so clean on the second night I told the manager/owner how happy we was. Enjoy your night at the cabin.

Elizabeth are you doing OK? Has the weather cooled off or is 108 returning? emoticon emoticon

.............................. emoticon emoticon

OK, I'm going back over to visit Buddy this afternoon, Larry his owner called and said he's trying to get home but will need to get his medical team to agree.

I was wondering if a chock collar is what Buddy needs (I think he has one hanging up with the mussel one I was using) or Nola's idea of just playing ball might be the exercise for a few days.

Nola - that was a quick trip for Cheyenne. I hope that Don is feeling better. We need to rain - it has been a very dry summer. When it does rain it seems to come down hard and fast. Ity has been lots of watering for me this summer. I picked my first zucchini last night - I think they are coming in very late this summer. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Karen - ouch - I am glad you did not slip and fall and break a leg but rigs are very painful. Please be careful. And your poor neighbors - I hope they are doing well,. emoticon

Barb - yes - the male selective hearing - I hope dear old dad is listening better. Good thing you have some wine emoticon emoticon

Its mowing and cleaning for me at the cabin tonight!

Karen I hope the ribs are feeling better after a good nights sleep. Buddy may have to do with retrieving a ball for his exercise, that's if you can throw it without hurting. must remember not to send anything funny emoticon

Barb it is good your Dad is listening to you. I hope he is hearing as well. emoticon I think selective hearing is very alive and well in the male population. Good the wine helped. It can just hit the spot when needed.

Elizabeth I hope you are staying cool, emoticon and your car problem isn't too major emoticon

Dorothy perhaps next week is the week for a good golf score. emoticon

It has poured raining all day. I took Cheyenne to the bus she went home today and then got soaked putting my groceries into the car. Miss Cheyenne already but she will be back soon to do some more driving. We have a lot less traffic for her to negotiate.

Have a lovely Thursday emoticon

Karen: Oh dear! If it still causes severe pain today, it's worth getting checked out. A. they could give you a pain reliever if you need, and B. perhaps a rib belt would help (it's just like a snug ace all-in-one wrap that you wrap for support around your rib cage.) Broken ribs are NO FUN.

Barb thanks for the hug emoticon and back to you emoticon

I read up on bruised ribs and will do a little ice and rest, don't want DH to know how much pain I'm in.
It hurts on my left side and when I bend over, seems to be getting worse emoticon sure it just needs a rest and no laughing.

Maybe tomorrow I will play with Buddy in his backyard, maybe he is more upset then I thought about his master being gone

Talk about miles on my stepper we walked for 90 minutes this morning emoticon

Nola: Yeah for being a GOOD pooped. Sounds like you had fun.

Dorothy: OH DON’T I KNOW IT! It’s called male selective hearing, I think. But Dad was shaken up so I think he’ll listen this time.

Karen: Yup . . . wine helped … just a glass . . . not my usual style to imbibe, but it felt right last night!

OMG! So sorry for both your neighbors’ phlights, but that’s REALLY too bad that Buddy behaved like that. *SIGH** Glad no dog fight and sorry you got scratched up!

Hugs LADIES.

Nola / exhausted grandma, love those lady day outings

Barb sounds like another glass of wine for tonight "relaxing under the moon"

Dorothy hope 'trophy winning' golf game returns next week emoticon Is your vacation at work coming soon or are you covering for the rest of the crew?

Elizabeth how did your day go?

emoticon emoticon emoticon

My one neighbor John, that had his lung cut on, walked to our house yesterday that was his first outing.
Our other neighbor Larry, who is paralyzed and has the dog Buddy slipped and broke his leg and knee (three places) so he called Monday and ask me to walk Buddy (3 to 4 weeks before he gets to come home). Larry always asks how did it go will today my phone report was not good, Buddy bolted for our other neighbor's dog and drug me in the street. No dog fight but one pissed off neighbor emoticon and I'm a little scratched up. emoticon
But at least now I know how strong Buddy is emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nola - thanks for reminding me of the full moon. I am glad that Don is feeling a bit better. How wonderful all of the memories for you and Cheyenne.

Barb - so sorry for your loss and for your crappy day. Maybe dad will start to listen to you more when he realizes you are right,. Or not - 9 times out of 10 I am right and hubby still does not listen. Hope you had a good nights rest.

Karen - welcome back. So nice that you and Robert had a good trip and our now planning your next excursion. Yes summer is flying by way to quickly.

Golf game was so-so - my putting has sucked the last few weeks - I really need to work on it,

Absolutely pooped Grandma here after a big "ladies day" with Cheyenne. It was lovely. We have been having ladies days together since she was about 3. I even lost her in a huge Target store once, not the best moment of my life and I still get sweats every time I go into Target.
We had Chinese lunch and seemed to spend lots of money, but it was good. With a lot of "Remember whens"

Barb hope you had a good sleep and are ready to face a new day.

The rest of you have a lovely Wednesday. emoticon

Full Moon tonight. Beware of Ghoulies and Ghosties and things that go bump in the night!!

Tuesday – Auntie Lynn passed away yesterday @ 3:14 pm with her family. She was in her hospital bed, and able to look out the front window to see her beloved beach and Lake Michigan. She knew she was loved. Hole in my heart. She was wonderful, and now she’s an angel.

Dad told me yesterday he think s the transmission on his engine is slipping. G-R-E-A-T. I am 100% sure that it is not going to be worth it to repair the car, for one thing, and secondly, I AM SEEING IT AS A SIGN THAT IT’S TIME TO GIVE UP DRIVING. I am going to let him get an estimate on the car and pray he realizes that it’s not worth it. **SIGH**

Ok, that’s it from my world right now. Can I get off yet????

Ok – this is the updated version of today.

Dad, against my advice, drove himself. Okee dokee then. Appt. @ 11 am. I got a call @ 10:40 am that the car died. CRAP! So, took me ONE HOUR to get Mom loaded into the van to go be with him (he’d called towing and had to stay with the car). When I arrived there, an officer was there, too.

Long story short, I just got home. We didn’t get a freakin’ tow until 2 pm Almost 3 hrs. All due to mistakes. Color me explosively livid. So now the car is @ the dealership.

Had to re-schedule the dental appt. for Dad till Friday;.

I'll catch up with you when I can. Hugs

Dorothy that must make you feel good to have people in your cabin for 2 weeks. Hope you get some "Me" time. Hope you do well at golf tonight. emoticon

Barb I am glad your Aunt is pain free as she ends her life on this earth, and it must make it easier for her family to see her at pain free and at peace. emoticon

Had a lovely day with Cheyenne. It was a lovely sunny day and Don was able to sit out and get some rays. He is coming good, thank goodness, it is always such a worry. I do think he still has that Mosquito Virus in him that rears its ugly head whenever his body is under stress. Must bring it up next time he has a Drs appointment. Tomorrow we are having our ladies day out with a bit of Mall surfing and a call in at Aldis which has just opened in our area. Still about 8 miles from home,

Have a lovely Tuesday!!

Barb - so sorry to hear about your aunt - may her family and herself find peace in her last days here on earth. Hugs to all of you!

Liza - I went out for a morning walk yesterday and sweated - it sure has been muggy here. I went and saw my mom on /Sunday as well and picked her up last night to go pick some blueberries.

I did get the cabin cleaned last night and took a half a day to go clean again today. The people that stayed there are overnight are from India and I tried to explain to them I would not have time to clean after they left today as I have more guests coming but they told me they were very clean?? Oh well - I took 1/2 a day to clean and get it ready and tonight I golf. I will also have to clean it on Thursday and then i will have a 2 week break as those people will be there for 2 full weeks!

Monday – quiet day yesterday, thankfully. Talked w/my uncle and cousins. Auntie is still hanging in there. Able to talk to them. Sedated w/IV pain meds, though, which is good. No pain. Just too sad.


Nola: Yes, Auntie Lynn is a total battler and it continues.

Yes. Brother has been given “the word” that it is ultimately his job. WE will go down next weekend and sort thru stuff then the rest is his to deal with.

Silver Fox is exactly right!

PHEW! Glad Cheyenne is a good driver. Great for her.and you!

Dorothy: Yes, we’ll sort thru stuff. Really, I feel most of it will either be auctioned/estate sale or donated. We both have all we need and outside of family things, others could get use from things like dishes, etc.

Hope your bike cooperated!

Eliza: Goad you and your DS went to see your Mom.

Barb - I have all of my fathers pictures as well - can't imagine putting them in an estate sale. Of course you would choose what you want first - the only way to go. Glad you and happy had a good day. emoticon

It is thundering here right now and so humid - I just went on a quick mile walk and am sweating like a pig - and that is after I took a shower - yikes. I may be a bit smelly at work today. emoticon Hubby put some air in my bike tires but have not tryed that yet. I guess I better go get ready for work.

Barb such sad news. Your Aunt must have been a battler to have survived a year. Prayers and thoughts to you and your extended family at this time. emoticon

Good your brother has already started on the Condo. Such a big job. Hope all the ducks stay in a row so you can get down next Sunday. emoticon
I am afraid Lady Clairol has been MIA in this house for quite some time. She didn't last very long at all on my very grey hair now, so in the end I decided being a silver foxie lady might be the go! emoticon

Dorothy peacock blue sounds lovely. Did you float home? I love Farmers Markets. We don't get many just here which is sad. Good luck with the plants. Thinking of you riding two miles with a flat tyre. Definitely one way to build up the calf muscles emoticon

Picked up Cheyenne and she drove home. I needn't have worried, she is quite good. She spent the summer holidays driving around her other grandparents farm. Tomorrow she is practising backing down our drive which is a very long. emoticon

Sunday – sad news. My favorite aunt who has been battling liver cancer for a little over a year (which I find remarkable) is being sent home from the hospital and has a day or two. Talked w/my cousins and my uncle (my Mom’s youngest brother). Just plain sad. Such a wonderful woman.

In the meantime, continuing on with the drama that is selling the condo. So far so good. Brother was there yesterday and straightened a few things. Next Sunday we’ll go down, I HOPE.

What can you say when DH’s give you the best day ever . . . except I LOVE YOU! Yup. Glad you had that yesterday.

Yeah for washing that gray away! Have to try that again too. Lady Clairol has been on strike with that for me, though! LOL

Hope today is a fun one w//having lunch w/your friend and visiting your Mom


Nola: I know you’ll have a great time w/Cheyenne!

Sorry to hear Don is still not good. Hugs and prayers. And best of luck w/Cheyenne driving you home from the bus stop! Nerves of steel . . . remember!

Dorothy: It may come down to an estate sale, but not till the brother and I have gone thru stuff. I happen to have all the pictures here, and boy, couldn’t imagine having those in an estate sale. That makes me sad to think of!

Hope you have a good Sunday!

Nola - you can do it! emoticon Just keep your eyes closed. I hope Don is feeling better. emoticon

Barb - maybe you should have an estate sale - they have them here all the time. I stopped by one yesterday and I wanted to cry. There were so many family pictures - and I mean old pictures - so hard to believe no one in the family wanted them. Every time I go to one I always think - why do I hold onto so much stuff - family really does not want your stuff. emoticon Anyways - I am sure you will get it all figured out.

We had beautiful weather here yesterday. My friend and I walked to the farmers market - I bought some plants emoticon I can't help myself and I had some holes in my garden that needed something. Afterwards we went and got pedis - I got a peacock blue color - I love it. And I did dust and run the sweeper downstairs. emoticon In the evening we had a little fire. This morning I decided to finally try out my bike my hubby got me and after 2 miles of struggling I realized the front tire was flat. emoticon Today I need to get rid of my recycling as my back porch is over flowing!

Barb thinking of you as you go through all this extra stuff. Plus all the travelling as well. I hope it all goes well. It is definitely "one day at a time" and we will get there in the end kind of time.

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dorothy thinking of you with a blueberry coloured tongue. Hope you are having a good weekend in your garden.Like the idea of blueberry wine emoticon

Cheyenne arrives tomorrow. I was going to meet her and we were having a "ladies day" at the Mall with lunch, but Don is not good so I don't want to leave him, so Cheyenne will get the bus here. I am going to have her drive me home from the bus stop......shudder shudder.

Have a great Sunday. emoticon

So, we had an offer on the condo 2 days ago. Low balled. Countered. They countered. Still too low. Told the realtor our bottom line. Today counter offer for the bottom line. Dad accepted it, though brother and I think he could have done better. So be it. BUT they want the closing on 24 August. NOT POSSIBLE. All the possessions have to be gone thru and handled one way or another. **SIGH** Bill is going to start doing that on Sunday and we may go there as well. In the meantime the requested close we’ve asked for is 26 September. We’ll see. **SIGH* Ready to tear my hair out.

Really gorgeous weather. It did rain very early in the morning, but then stopped. The clouds hung in there all day, but the temps were wonderful.

Nola: I am glad that the condo is sold, for Dad’s sake, as he has been – pardon m editorializing here – driving me NUTS about it. I told him firmly that I CANNOT be in charge of selling the condo. I DON’T LIVE IN ILLINOI! BILL does. So he breathed fire down Bill’s back and he got the ball rolling.

I think we’re going to go to IL tomorrow and perhaps the next few Sundays to get the things that we want and get other stuff donated. Otherwise it is up to my brother to get things completed there. We cannot leave Mom and Dad alone for a whole day. No way. I think he may have gotten that idea yesterday after we talked! LOL

I personally would NOT have taken the offer and just waited it out a little longer, but that’s not what Dad wanted to do, so there you have it. **SIGH**

OMG . . . blueberries and cream, strawberries and cream, peaches and cream . . . all good! A treat.

Good luck w/Barney’s hair cut.

Dorothy: Now blueberry wine . . . that could be a keeper!

Brother and I have to go thru the stuff and decide. There is some furniture that I will take to replace some of my more weatherbeaten pieces. Papers, we have to go thru. Clothing – dishes – silverware (well, it’s not silver, but you know0 towels, all that will be donated most probably to Good Will.

Dad wants to sell some of the stuff, but he doesn’t “get” that you HAVE TO BE THERE TO SELL things like the furniture. I can’t do that. In all fairness, it would be something perhaps Bill could do, but he has to work too, so his time for that would be limited.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Nola - I am sure Barney looks great!! I froze about 10 cups of blueberries last night, I eat them with my greek yogurt in the mornings and I also make a blueberry pudding and blueberry muffins or bread. Plus one of my coworkers told me he could make me some blueberry wine emoticon I also have a wonderful blueberry cake recipe.

Barb - no rest for the wicked emoticon That is great that the condo was sold - good luck on getting it empty. What are you doing with everything??

Today I am going to head to the Farmers Market and get a pedi. I also need to clean my house and work in the gardens a bit.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serinity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Barb that is good having a buyer for the Condo. What a big job to pack it up before September. Thank goodness it is not the middle of winter. Is your brother in charge of all that? emoticon

Dorothy what do you do with all the blueberries? Do you have enough to freeze. I think I would just guts on them loaded with cream when they were in season........well perhaps not the cream, but the thought is good. emoticon

Today we gave Barney a haircut. His hair grows so fast, I am glad he just sits there and lets me do him and he doesn't have to go to the groomer . He looks a bit moth eaten, but he hasn't learnt to look in a mirror yet. emoticon
