We had some rain early this morning so the Sizzle is on. I look forward to some cooler temps about October.

We had that temp at 8:30 this morning. We could use a good rain storm, too I hate having to water, esp. since we are on city water.

It's a mere 85 here--the worst of it all seems to be north and south of us. But we are still getting pretty baked. The rosemary foundation planting I attempted to start has not survived--just two plants, so not a financial disaster, but disappointing.

I just want it to rain, but that doesn't seem likely.

Good thing you have most things organized so that you can get started on that big project---have fun experimenting with dye.
We have been to Walmart---got a new hand mixer---mine of 38 has a frayed cord that is starting to short so it needs to go--can't complain as it has served me well---so I found a cheap one at Walmart to try---not a frequently used item so it should be okay. Hate to give up my old one---sigh. Now to stay inside for the rest of the day---maybe venture out to water plants and get the mail later on today.

I bought more white fabric for dying--JoAnn's was had a coupon for 50% off one regular-priced item, so I bought an entire bolt for only $2.00 a yard. I have a lot of work to do this weekend--a long distance client for whom I have to file a bankruptcy case, and the beginning of the giant contract project I do every autumn. It's due a month early this year, so I have to get started now instead of in September. I refer to it as the Project of Doom, but it is a $10k project that I can do in the evenings and on weekends with TV on in the background, so I can't complain too much!

Still, with all that, plus laundry and errands and garden work, I'm still going to make time to play with fabric and dye some new things. So it should be a good weekend.

Honestly, seems you cannot trust any company to live up to their promises anymore. As much as I hate the price of cable, that seems to be the most reliable option--at least here--in the cities it might be different.
Going to be a decent day today---so we will probably do outside stuff today or at least get out of the house. The only thing I did yesterday outside was to take out to bags of shredded stuff to the trashcan and check the mail.

Lecates, I'm a quilter, so I will hack them up for some project in the future! Right now I'm mostly playing--you know the old saying about quilters: the one who dies with the most fabric wins!

I'm super irritated. We just switched to AT&T U-verse for internet because we were promised fiber optic cable and loads of reliability. Instead, it seems to be dropping out for brief periods regularly. Not enough to make a real problem, except I log into my work long distance through a VPN and it keeps dropping out and having to be restarted. Yes, it's just a click, but if I'm in the middle of saving something, it's a giant pain.

Grr.

Nola, that is great---hope this new caregiver stays with you---sounds like a winner---and help her out by getting rid of as much as you can.
I made my dh go thru his clothes drawers--and he actually put clothes away he had piled up on his shoe holder----we did put 4 pair of shorts and 3 pair of pants in a bag for donation---also a pair of slippers--and he allowed me to throw away 2 pair of shoes---Progress! Plus I stuck a couple of my items in that bag, too.

Mommy, good idea to do that with your meal--and nice that a friend brought over something delicious for you to eat.
MissG--glad you finally got to play with the fabric dye---what will you do with the items?
Luckily my mom called and reminded me that she had a doctor's appointment today---LOL---it was on the calendar but I had not checked it. Just back home from it---boy, is it hot---at least there is a breeze---but it is a hot one.

I made a mess, instead of decluttering, yesterday. But I'm really pleased about it.

15 years ago this month, we moved into this house. One of the things I liked best about it was a large laundry sink and big laundry room. I would have the space and resources to dye fabric.

15 years.

I finally dyed fabric today. These are pictures of my favorite pieces.









The buckets and tools are still spread out all over the basement, as I left them to air dry, but the dye mess itself is cleaned up.

Glad you were able to keep it out of your accounts--and sounds like a lot of fun for everyone.
The party was nice-and the weather was lovely --a bit cool so I didn't get in the Pool as I would have been chilyl afterwards. I tried a new recipe---used a can of lemon pie filling and an angel food cake mix together ---made a very moist lemon angel food cake---and only brought home a small piece of it for dh to have---so I consider it a success.

Red hat pool party sounds amazing!

Yes, I've disabled the app from getting to my Google account. I saw a flurry of articles on that yesterday.

And there are some down sides, no doubt. But walking in the evening yesterday, DH and I kept running into people who are playing. There was much talk and laughter. It's not a bad thing if it gets us talking to our neighbors!

They just warned on TV this morning that if you are playing this on Google on your phone that it can compromise your email and other things on your phone----be careful---plus people are walking into things and getting hurt while playing it. Always something, isn't it?
Did get outside yesterday and swept off the new patio and pulled weeds---got all caught up with my flower beds and keep watching for the tomatoes to ripen. Think I have one area to work on in the living room, then moving on to my bedroom.
Red Hat pool party tonight!

Earning time for your game? LOL--I do that to earn computer or game time--need that kind of incentive when at home.
I am trying to come up with how I am going to move everything in the living room so I can treat the hardwood floor---we bought a bigger rug for in there last year and I have never moved things around in there with that---thinking I might have to do the floor in thirds instead of in half.

It was actually cool and pleasant, with a nice breeze.

I've started playing Pokemon Go. It's very silly, but I did take an extra-long walk this morning because I was playing, so that's a good thing!

Woohoo to finishing that side. Guessing a porch party means that it is outside--is that how they let you know that it is an outdoor event in this heat? Glad it is not too back today---humiidity is supposed to be down today here for a couple of days but I haven't been out to see yet---but not a whole lot cooler but not supposed to hit 90 today so that is a bit better.

That's why I don't put weeds into mine, either.

Finished weeding out that side, and picking the raspberries. I'm putting them in the freezer so that when I have enough I can make jam.

We have a porch party to go to today. It's a bit cooler and there is a breeze, so that's a relief!

They do say that compost piles will do that, but I don't think mine would be as it is in the shade---only place for it that was out of the way was in the back alleyway.
Man, it was so hot yesterday that I didn't even want to do much in the house. Today we have a 16th birthday party to go to today--then I think we will either get dinner out or pick up something so we don't have to heat up the kitchen.

Hmmm, all they are doing is spreading those weeds all over the city. I don't recycle weeds in my compost pile for that reason--figure the weeds will do better in the regular trash pile to help break it down a bit---LOL Do you have a local grocery store that still will use paper if you ask?

I went out in the twilight and pulled a lawn-and-leaf bag worth of weeds. That's five to go to the curb tomorrow--our city collects and composts all yard waste that's in craft paper bags and uses it in the municipal gardens and around the buildings. Even though it was dusk, I came in drenched with sweat.Now sitting at my desk with a small fan trained directly on my--bliss!

LOL, too funny about the clothes! This heat does not really make one want to work out--it zaps our energy right out of us. Honestly, it is even too warm to work out in the house--the ac is struggling to bring down the temps. I just went to water my friend's flowers while dh watered ours here at home---with this heat, you just cannot water during the day or the plants would just burn up. We pulled some weeds from the driveway, too.
My gd helped me go thru her books and we got rid of maybe a fourth of them---I will pack them up for the future, but if no grands on the horizon I almost am ready to give it all away. We will see how it goes in the next few years. Meant to have her go thru another area so that area might just be done by me. She is growing up way to quick for me!

This week has been kind of a waste, as far as any working out goes. I've not gotten in a single workout. Sad, sad. Got to get myself back on schedule!

We had a good, soaking rain last night, but it's so hot today that I need to go out and check my containered plants to make sure they're not dried out. I'm going to try and do a little weeding, once the sun drops low enough. I did that Tuesday and it worked out.

I had to put on actual clothes like a grownup and leave the house every day this week. I don't like that--I'm very spoiled by working from home! LOL

Lol, an interesting premise for a story.
Sounds like the weather is miserable there. At least you got a good workout at work. The weather has turned very uncomfortable here, too. Even tougher since we had a good weekend.
Got the dining room rug shampooed, then ran errands and explored some stores. Parts of the rug still damp so waiting to put stuff back this evening.
MissG, did you catch up with yourself?

Huh. Tried again, but apparently SparkPeople doesn't like amazon links. Oh well, I tried.

Day is off to a bad start. Couldn't sleep last night until after 3:00, then my alarm got turned off due to the holiday and I forgot to turn it back on. So barely out of bed at 9am, a time by which I've usually written in my journal, gone to the gym, and walked the dog. I'm going to be playing catch-up all day.

Oh, well. Tomorrow is another one!

Lecates, I couldn't get the link to work either. I googled Mancer Trilogy.

Miss G. I really don't read the fantasy books, but there is a very large market out there. I read non-fiction & mysteries. I have two friends who are published authors & I wish I was one of them, but I'm not. Heather writes Christian mysteries & has recently had either #8 or #9 published. Mary is a Christian writer & speaker with one published so far. I'm no longer disciplined enough to sit & write.

Link doesn't work for some reason.
Thanks for the heads up on the rug---I did wash the indoor/outdoor rug yesterday out on the deck with the hose--the few spots came right out and it looks good as new---wilth a few frays on the edges from the cats---LOL---not putting it back down until the rug is done--thinking Tuesday is the day for that---so will move on to the living room this week as I finish up the dining room.
LOL to the dog--and sounds like an ideal situation for that Mom and dd---what in the world is she going to do when she leaves him later---he sounds very dangerous and vindictive. Scary situation for both of them---esp. when you hear of others going off the deep end and doing horrible things.
Dh left for church and I turned off the ac and opened up the front door---feels so much better inside this way---but later this week going to the 90's--yuck!

On the contrary, she HATES getting wet. She kept gazing balefully over her shoulder at me. I just told her that it's her own fault and kept walking.

DD is home for a couple days to do her laundry and repack for a two-week sail. She also quit her job. They've basically taken her on for room and board--when they aren't sailing, she is now on the carpentry crew and has a bunk on one of the smaller ships. She leaves on the 4th for two weeks, is back for a few days, then leaves until mid-September.

When we've traveled in the past, we've had a daughter or a daughter's boyfriend to house sit and dog sit. When we go on DH's book tour in the fall, we will have to make other arrangements. But I have a friend who is staying in a bad marriage until her daughter graduates from high school next year (husband has promised to make their lives a living hell, stop paying tuition at daughter's high school, and could possibly become violent, so they are both in hunker-down mode for one more year), and she and daughter will probably be happy to come stay here and be away from the heinous husband with a decent excuse. She's dog sat for us a couple times when there was no one around to do it, and I think they will be happy to do it again.

As for the carpet, I've done that. Just make sure you don't let the rug get saturated close to the furniture.

Oh, forgot to ask---I need to shampoo my dining room carpet---have you ever rented a machine and did the carpet but left part of your furniture in the room-----I can move out the table and chairs but not the hutch, desk and bookcase---just wondering if it was safe to use one of those---none of them are really in an area where I need to really clean.

We definitely will have to meet up if I go up there next summer--that isn't that far from her house--she went there for her cancer treatment. Silly dog---guess he doesn't mind getting wet? What happens when you go away?
We got a new washer yesterday---it is being delivered on the 4th--I was totally surprised about that with it being a holiday--and also paying for them to take it away plus 2 other appliances we have sitting outside---worth the money as sons don't seem to have the time to do that for us. I will have a lot of laundry to catch up on once it comes.
I know what you mean about the mouse moving on its own---I have a Kindle Fire HDX with the magic help button---they circle things and show me how to correct a problem and if I don't get it, they can correct it long distance----it is amazing to me---I just had to get them to help me put in a gift card code--couldn't figure out where to go---duh--I am soooo challenged!

We are on the west side of Cleveland. Depending on which way you come up, meeting up is definitely a possibility.

The connection did get resolved, though there was an hour that I couldn't do anything while the remote IT guys were fixing my computer. It's still odd to see the mouse moving all by itself!

It's a rainy day here, thank goodness. We've really needed it. Of course I still had to walk the dog a mile in a downpour because she's too dumb to just do her business and retreat--not walking her over a busy weekend was the cause of her illness. She won't just go in the back yard if we let her out, so she got stopped up.

And I know that she doesn't actually *need* to walk that mile, because when it's hovering around zero in the winter she's like, "yup, right here at the next door neighbors is good enough, let's go home."

Dopey mutt. But I do love her.

Doing stuff away from home is much more fun than at home. Glad she is enjoying it and been chosen to crew the ship. Do you live up near Erie? I have a good friend who lives in Albion--she is coming to visit me in August which means that next summer I will probably go up and visit her---we should plan on meeting up if I do.
Hope they figure out what is wrong with your connection--glad you saved some work so you could continue to do something.

I'm waiting on a call back from IT again today. I had access yesterday, now it's gone. Boo. Still have work though.

It looks like DD will be gone for pretty much the rest of the summer. The tall ship where she's been volunteering has asked her to come on as crew for two trips, one two weeks and the other six weeks. She's up in Erie now, but needs to race home, do her laundry, and then race back up to sail this week. It's not a paid position, but considering she started out on this by her father paying about a thousand dollars for her to be a participant in the program and now they are taking her on as crew, I think she's done a heck of a job turning a vacation into a career! It's like she's found herself--the kid I could barely get to help with the garden because it was messy and exhausting spent two solid days scraping zebra mussels off the hull of a ship without complaint and went back to help tear up the old floating dock and rebuild it. It's like she's a different person, and a much happier one, when she's with the ship.

So yay! Her sister refers to her as a "hippie pirate," and that's about right.

Well, kind of glad you had stuff saved to work on--but it would have been nice to have a break from work, too---but then you would have been playing catch up later on. HOpe they got it fixed for you.
Slowly working on the dining room now--although I need to get the kitchen floor done today, too.

My remote office must have a power outage--I can't get onto any of the servers--can't even get my work email. Fortunately, I had saved things to my desktop so I am still able to work.

Dog is still not eating, but her energy is back up to almost normal. We took a very long walk this morning.

I wish we would get some rain--but not 5 inches all at once, thank you!

We got 5 inches of rain---guess I should check for weeds today after all that.
I did get the cabinets done but not the floor--didn't want any mud tracked in on a clean floor. So instead I worked on my desk---got it all cleaned and organized---was even able to sit at my desk and pay the bills last night. Now if I can only maintain it---LOL
Working on the rest of the dining room today and we will probably run an errand today just to get out of the house---saw where a new store opened near by so we might go check it out before our run to the grocery store.

Vet says there is "something going around." I guess dogs can get the flu, too.

It's nice that it's cooler. I'm hoping to get some work done outside this evening.

Maybe from getting scared by that deer?
We went to OC yesterday and got all our favorite treats while there---our summer splurge---it was lovely down there with a nice breeze off the ocean and not crowded at all--this weekend would be a different story---it is always packed for the 4th weekend.
Now I really need to finish the kitchen so I can move on to the dining room---it is a rainy day here so no reason to go outside to work.

Usually, the smaller the dog, the more aggressive they can be---but glad he was smart enough not to mess with the deer.. Maybe you should carry a can of mace to chase deer away.

We have deer now and again--we aren't very far from a large park. But usually they are shy. This one was coming for me.

Considering what a tiny beast my dog is, not being aggressive was her best bet!

This morning I had a deer stalk me. I was walking the dog and about twelve houses down, there on the sidewalk stood this young buck, glaring at me. Decided to go back and the other way around. Walked a couple houses, Shasta looking over her shoulder but never barking. Look back.

Deer is following at a casual pace. Walk a couple more houses, look back.

Deer is closer.

Pick up the pace a little, glance back.

Deer is moving at a trot.

Scurry to the driveway and up onto the porch. By the time I turn around there, the deer is IN MY DRIVEWAY. Still looking at me. Finally moves on when we go in the house.
Dog never made a peep. Even after she was safe behind the screen door.

Whole new meaning to the term "deerstalker."

Oh, my, you should never try new trails without a partner along with you---thinking you made it back alright since you posted about it--hope no lasting affects from it.

Lecates, the GED materials asre only 1-1/2 years old. I just stuck them in there with all the other boxes. Materials are all good fro current GED tests. English as a Second Language materials don't get outdated.

Missw G glad you made it to the gym. Just don't push yourself too fast.

I've been known to do lots of things that weren't considered to be best choices. Today I added another one. For some unknown reason, I decided to go to Powder Valley & walk the trails. That was not a wise decision for a combination of (1) heat in the 90s (2) steep hills (3) asthma. At one point I kind of accepted the fact that I was going to die right there on the trail & some poor, unsuspecting hiker was going to come along & find me.

I made it to the gym, but my stamina was dreadful. I took it really easy, though.

We have company coming for the weekend, good friends from up in Michigan. I'm glad, but also a little tired.

Back to the laundry--one load left to fold and put away!

Hope you find a home for those things, but betting things are outdated now and on one will want them--- a friend had a whole bunch of homeschool stuff but it was outdated and she ended up having to trash it.
I hope to enjoy it when the weather allows.

Lecates, you did a great job. Now take time to enjoy the benefits.

I would normally agree with you about the unpacked boxes, but I know what is in some of them & it's things I need. Some boxes contain genealogy research materials that need to be sorted & filed - lots of that. Other boxes contain GED class materials or Women's Ministry materials. I'm sure I can find a home for them. Just haven't taken the time. The rest of the boxes will just go probably. Not sure what's in them.

Sandy, thinking if you have been in that apartment for a while, nothing really important in those boxes---hope you can get rid of most of them. Glad you are back.
MissG---glad your stamina in better---don't push too hard if you go to the gym and stop if your body says to.
We got the outside project finished today---woohoo!--and dh says he is not doing anything else this week---thinking he earned that! Love how it turned out! Will let you know when new pictures are posted.
Also got the freezer defrosted---just waiting before turning it back on like I am supposed to.

Well I'm officially back. Today I'm going to start going through the boxes that have been stacked in the spare room since I moved into the apartment. This will last for awhile. It's definitely not a one day project.

I still am working to get back my energy, but today is definitely better. Since it's cool this morning, went outside to water and weed. Then came in and cleaned up the shared living spaces and my office in advance of the house cleaners.Amazing how a chore that looks so daunting doesn't really take that long when you've established a space for everything. Still have to make the bed and whip through the bedroom once DH is up--he's a 9am riser, and I aim for 6, but we go to bed at the same time, so it works out. But the cleaners don't come until the afternoon, so it's all good. Didn't make it to the gym this morning--I may try to do that while the cleaners are here. I have a conference call for training at 11, so I wanted the housework done this morning as my higher priority.

Ah, there's DH! Time to do the bedroom.

Glad it was not off too long. We had thunderstorm last night and our power blinked a few times---so I waited to fix dinner until it passed---did not want to be in the middle of cooking and lose my power..
Had gd yesterday so not much accomplished at home--but today I will defrost the freezer as my start to the kitchen cleaning.

We both are, and have been since the beginning. And yes, jumping in at the middle would not be a good idea. Even we, who have watched from the beginning, occasionally say, "Wait, who's that?" It's a big cast and many subplots.

Just working today. We had a power outage last night--weather was fine, but there were scattered ones all over the city, so I think the heat was just overwhelming the grid and tripping breakers. Came back on about midnight, and we never opened the fridge so it was fine. It's amazing, though, how quiet it gets!

Is your dh hooked on that or are you? Know some of the teachers talked about that this year at lunch plus my 2 sons talked about it on Sunday---I am not sure if I would have watched it but know it is useless to start in the middle of it---LOL
Have gd today---she wants to go to Michael's Craft store and Chick-fil-a---wonder what fun things we will find to do there?

Yeah, and it was Game of Thrones night--I don't know what I was thinking, that we'd get to go to the movies!

Sounds like you're getting a lot done outside--great job!

Guess if you were yelling at the Cavaliers, you were not at the movies--LOL--I know I want to go see the new Independence Day on the big screen.
We had a nice time with the boys and my mom yesterday---and Mom liked what I had done to the chairs on the porch and the outdoor swing set. Dh kind of overdid it on the project--figured he was ---so I told him this morning to back off for a couple of days, esp. since it going to be super hot and humid---he finally got hold of the neighbor and he will come on Wednesday to help him with it---betting they get it done as Jackie is a real worker. The boys got the heavy cement table leveled off so that area is ready to be done--it really looks good and I asked a friend to post the pictures I sent her to my Spark page for me---will let you know whey they are there to view.
Just finished cleaning the top of the washer/dryer---and I reorganized those cupboards last year and they are still in good shape so I think that area is now done---except for the floor but I will do that when I finish up the kitchen. We do need to take some stuff to the basement but think we will do that after the pool tonight when it is a tad cooler.

Up to going to the gym today, though the sore throat is back. That's probably my fault for hollering for the Cleveland Cavaliers last night, though!

Lecates, I'd like to not listen to my body, but considering that a quick sweep of the kitchen floor left me nauseated and shaking, I think I will have to do so. Hoping to be up to going to a movie this evening--DH really wants to, and it is father's day.

Sandy, ouch, but hopefully this will make exercising and general movement much easier for you. There is a great chair exercise video here on Spark you might be able to do until you can do more on your feet.
MissG---listen to your body and take it easy this weekend.
Got about half way thru the big outdoor project yesterday with some help from our oldest son in the morning and then dh worked at his own pace in the afternoon---now the fun begins as the next area has some challenges to laying the pavers in the next section. I did spray paint the swing set that goes there and hopefully the boys will move it back to the area where the bricks are done.
Today is a bbq with 2 of our sons and my mom.
Hope everyone has a nice day!

Lecates, there is a soft corn on the bottom of my foot that is about 80% surrounded by a callous. It's been there for years & I was able to deal with it, but since I've been focusing on more exercise it is making it difficult to stand flat n my foot & keeps me off-balance. They podiatrist will be cutting them out. Nothing serious, but I guess it will keep me from being on my foot a lot for a day or two.

Lecatse--I definitely do have a case. NyQuil helped me sleep last night, at least. I'm disappointed because I really wanted to get back to some serious yardwork this weekend. But I will be patient with myself!

Sandy, what will they do on your foot? I agree, you are the one who will be in pain or dealing with how to walk and get about. Glad you are able to start back on the decluttering---it is because this is something that you can control where your health is not.
MissG---sounds like you got a good case of it---hope you are taking something and able to take a rest part way thru your day to help you get everything done.
Got the spare room done! Thinking of doing the laundry area next but thinking I need to do a portion of the kitchen first---we stocked up on some items yesterday and I need to pull everything out of the lower cabinet food storage and clean and organize it---it wont' be too bad if my dh helps a bit---thinking I will get down on the floor and just sit there when it goes to organizing it---but will need dh to hand the stuff to me--then help me back up--LOL----all this depends on how I feel after we start the big outside project today---would like to get as much done today before the heat builds up next week but also don't want him to overdo it either. Oh, the joys of getting old!
