The weather is just about perfect. Supposed to be 96 tomorrow and sunny. Cools down to 80 on Thursday, so it's okay to come back then.

Tomorrow, I get to cook an extra dinner. One of my friends had surgery and I take her family dinner on Thursday. Planning to get a disposable casserole so she doesn't have to try to return it.

Have a great day/night!

Today I helped Darling Sister paint the downstairs fireplace off white and also cleaned all of the downstairs windows and screens. She lives on 22 acres so everything gets dirty fast though! :(

I also painted the harvest table top a pretty light mustard yellow. One coat and it needs 1 more at least!

How is Boise doing? Miss Boise so much!!!

Paint on the window? Who put that there? Ha!

Sitting here with DH in bed, DS hiding in his room and DD at a friend's. Almost like having the house to myself. Listening to podcasts and Sparking. Good way to spend an evening.

Good to know - thanks Barb. My DH is bringing his big truck and is going to drive me home with some furniture that is a gift from my sister. Seems to think he will be leaving at the end of next week.

Yeah I better be home by August 9th!! So yes I will be there to walk!!!! (Still can't run though!!!)

It's not as smoky today as it was yesterday. Supposed to be hazy tomorrow and then cool off to 80 and be rainy. You can definitely come home.

BTW - walking the Green Belt on Saturday, August 9th. Meeting at the zoo. The WHOLE team should come join us on our walk.

Sounds like everyone is so busy! All I've been doing is going to work! Ha!!

Christine - any end in sight? Do you get to come back to beautiful Idaho soon?

Deanna, I want a copy of the book!

Tomorrow, DD and I are going to go get her hair done. I get to go and I get to pay for half. Yay me!! The good news is that we are going out to lunch after with some friends.

Wow Deanna, sounds like you've been working hard on your photos! So cool! Someday I would like to learn how to take nice pictures! Maybe my DH could take me on a field trip!

Ended up working on the Master Bedroom and adjoining bathroom! I am using restore a finish on the cabinets to freshen them up! :)

I'm drinking my coffee a bit late. I jumped out of bed and went on my walk to try to beat the heat! It was a good way to start the day.

Getting the living room finished will feel like a huge accomplishment being that it's the first room people see.
You are one hard working women, I bet your sister treasures you!

I'm going to spend the day helping my mom pick out something to ware to the wedding this weekend. Then I'll be working on some photos of quilts I shot last night and finishing a CD of old family photos for my aunt.... I might need a second cup of coffee!

Hope everyone is having a happy Wednesday!

Bahhaha - not the average day indeed!

I am sitting here drinking my coffee... also trying to figure out what needs to be done first! We are so close to getting the living room done I guess that is where we will work today.

I knew it was not going to be an average day when the first thing my boss said when I walked in was "The police are here to talk to you"
I have to say the two detectives were very kind! Maybe that's why I enjoy reading mysteries so much.
Shortly after that I moved overseas so I don't know if the blushing bride was arrested.
What I do know is the grooms jewelry was missing and the police knew it too thanks to my pictures!
Funny thought, I was the witness for the wedding so my name is signed on the license!
I should probably get started on that book soon!

I've seen the good, the bad and the very drunk, a prearranged marriage (the bride wore black and was 3 hours late) and a groom dead less than 12 hours later under questionable circumstances!
It was an education on human nature that's for sure!

Vegas - Wow that must have been wild!!! I think you should stick with the Idaho Weddings! Tee hee! Sounds like it is still pretty hot in Boise! Dang! Stay with the A/C!

Sorry about work Barb... been there and done that! You must be working on one of your least favorite projects.:( Hang in here!

emoticon What is everyone else up to?

We got more boxes to the pod this morning! Yay!! Also made some red pepper salad dressing with the Nutri-bullet! So good!

Didn't quite get my 10k yesterday :( I went to bed really early! ha ha

I am in need of a photo field trip.... some place with AC would be helpful!
I have a wedding this weekend, I'm not the photographer(that I know of) but I'm not sure they'd let me in if I didn't have my camera.
Photographing weddings always make me uneasy, I may have PTSD from my days as a chapel photographer in Vegas.
Oh the things I've seen!
I'm sure this event will be tame but if at any point an Elvis of any age shows up I'm out of there!

It has been hot here, but I refuse to complain about the heat. I'm usually so cold that I hurt!! I prefer heat over cold at all times!!

Sometimes it's good to have time to miss each other, you've been gone so long you'll feel like newlyweds again! Camping sounds good if it's up north, it is way too hot here right now! I've been having to actually get out of bed before the crack of noon to get my walk in!

Glad your project is turning out but sorry your head was being disagreeable! :(

My DH said Boise has been HOT! He wants me to come home pronto and he wants to go camping!!! So I haven't told my sister yet but looks like I am going back to Boise pretty soon. He said he really misses me - Awwww, isn't that sweet? :)

Yesterday we put antique book pages of Napa Valley - black and white prints - into two matching black frames with 6 spots each. It turned out awesome!!!! She had purchased the frames to put her DH patents in and then didn't get it done. He had over nine of them. :) Some of them were for keeping soldier's safe in the war. My BIL is a brain!!

Really hot today in Napa!! :( No sanding done yet!!!)

My project is almost finished but my head started being really disagreeable so my parents had to help out a bit. Since it's for their office I'm not feeling too bad about that.
I only have the cabinet doors left to do, it's just been so hot out!

I wonder how many calories a moving saga burns... I bet it's a lot!
People pay good money for a distressed table top, think of it as the kids did the prep work!

Hi everybody!! Making slow but sure progress on this moving saga. I got the antique bookcase in the living room cleaned, oiled and staged and it looks great!

How is the project going for you Deanna? I am redoing a "Harvest Table' next. I guess they are very popular in Napa Valley. Only thing is her kids trashed the top of it!!! My sister picked out the paint for it and I hope it turns out good. Gosh I haven't done a huge project like this in a while!!!

Wow Barb I am so glad that your daughter and you have been having so much fun together and are making some great memories!! BSU is a great college too!

Friday, after orientation, DD and I played a double-header. We won the first game, but lost the second game. We only lost by three runs so we're okay with how we did!

Done with orientation and DD is signed up for her first semester of classes!! She's happy with the schedule she got and she's busy organizing everything so she is ready when school starts in about 6 weeks.

Now off to get some grocery shopping done. Fun!

How's things everyone? Have fun on your plane ride Kelli! My husband took a ride on the Liberty Bell when it was here one year He loved it!

The latest update on the staging/moving saga is the living room, dining room and kitchen are now freshly painted. We still don't have a full kitchen... but we do have micro and double oven!!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!

I'm glad we don't have that bakery here. I'd be too good a customer!

We lost our game Monday, won in Tuesday and play again tonight at 8:00. If we win tonight, we play again tomorrow. If we lose, we are done for the season.

Friday and Saturday is BSU orientation for my daughter. I "get" to attend too. This weekend is shot and it hasn't even started!

Anyone else have plans?

How was the softball game?

My mood is much improved tonight. My Spark Activity Tracker is working again so no more error message! I was really starting to go into Photoshop withdraws.

Hope everyone has a happy Wednesday!

Lack of sleep can make everything seem worse. I hope you can get some sleep soon.

We did NOT end up at the Speedway. We went to see the movie Tammy instead. We did watch the Speedway's fireworks though!

Adorable 2yo in your blog!!!

SB tournament started tonight. Double elimination and we lost our first game tonight. We play again tomorrow at 8:00. The part that sucks is that it is hard for me to fall asleep after a game. I'd better head to bed now. It's after 10 and I have to be up at 4:00 to get to work on time.

Later ladies!

I love a good project, this one is just being disagreeable! I tried using premixed milk paint and it isn't like real milk paint even a little. It just isn't the effect I was going for so I was disappointed. I only have the cabinet doors left but it's too hot out so they will have to wait until morning.
A bad hair style really does have the power to spoil ones week. I walk by a mirror and want to weep, then I feel overly dramatic and feel like sobbing!
I normally only feel this emotional when I see Old Yeller or the commercials late at night with sick children.... ok now that I've thought of those two depressing things my hair doesn't seem that bad.

Deanna, there is nothing worst than a bad haircut well unless it is a migraine! But really the whole thing is awful! Including the sliding mask! Plus all of the projects - wish I could do something to help... :( emoticon

Andrea finding stuff for your yard sounds way fun! Wish I would have been there!

Great news on the loss of weight and the diet bet win Kelli!!! Can't wait to see the pics too! But sorry about the extra bills! That seems to keep happening to me too & I am on retirement pay!

SPAT is the Spark Activity Tracker. The last time it worked was on the 3rd. At first I was able to get the error off my screen but not the last three days. Unfortunately I had promised someone I'd have pictures ready for them soon. Between that project (now at a standstill) doing the refinishing of cabinets, desk, chair and migraines I'm feeling burned out.
To top everything off I went in to have my hair TRIMED and she took off almost 4 inches! I can no longer even pull my hair back in a ponytail. I have sleep apnea and having my hair up in a scrunchy helps keep the mask on, now if I move much my mask slides off the top of my head and wakes me up.
I fear the lack of sleep has made me cracky, sorry for the long vent. I'll be back to my old self sometime next year when my hair grows back ;-)

Christine: My boyfriend and I love getting things for the yard. We ended up with a few metal pieces. One is a cricket made out of a railroad spike. He's super cute. We can't seem to stay away from this type of thing. Good thing my yard is big. We have stuff everywhere. Plus, if it's old and rusty, we want it. LOL! There was a turtle made out of horseshoes that we almost bought. He was cute too. I'm sure one of these days we'll have him too. Maybe next year. The booth is there every year so we always go check out what they have.

Hi All,

We ended up at Meridian Speedway also. It was a great weekend and a great 4th!! Got in lots of swimming, some good healthy dishes and then I ran 5 miles on the greenbelt yesterday. I almost needed another day off.

My kiddo had a great time with fireworks, there is a picture of him on my blog for those of you who love adorable 2 year old pictures. :) I am kind of partial to this particular 2 year old.

Got bad news and good news today. I won my dietbet this morning, so that is another 8 lbs gone and a bit of cash. I am 2.5 away from twenty, and it seems like I have been 2. 5 away from twenty forever. Then the property management people called and the A/C on my rental went out, and the heater has a cracked heater exchange and has to be replaced in October. Ughh.... one thing after another. I guess the rest of the year will be saving all of my pennies unless I hit the lottery.

have a great Monday!! (What is left of it).

Gee Deanna that sounds annoying! What is a SPAT?

Andrea I love arts and crafts! Did you fall in love with anything and buy it?

Barb, not sure when i am coming home. My sister has some health issues so even though she is 10 years younger than me, she says that I run circles around her. :) But she is a really good painter and is doing a lot of that to freshen everything up. I love the new color in the kitchen! It is kind of a gray with blue but mostly white :)

I sure wish they would get the SPAT fixed or at least let us know when it will be working. There is a box with the communication error on my computer screen and I can't get it off.
When I'm on line it's just annoying but I can't work around it in photoshop (it's blocking my layers). I guess I'm going to have to uninstall it, I don't know what else to do.

Sounds like a fun weekend! We did end up going to Meridian Speedway Friday night after going to visit a friend in Bruneau. On Saturday we went up to Roseberry (outside of Donnelly) for the Arts and Crafts Festival. Lots of driving this weekend but lots of fun too.

Yay!! I'm glad you went and had fun. Sometimes taking that risk is worth the reward.

How much longer will you be helping your sister?

Hi everybody!! Sounds like everyone enjoyed the weekend!

I did go to that party! It was actually a fun weekend! Lots of good healthy food, went hiking in the mountains, collected some sugar pine cones, did some bird watching, watched a great movie, played pool, darts, danced and sang! (And enjoyed some fine wine!)

Paige and Johnny bought this house in Sonora to be a fun party house and it really is! I really hit it off great with Johnny's sister (Stacy) too! She just lost her Mother this year and doesn't have a sister so I adopted her as my sissy!

I always worry that I won't fit in at a party when I don't really know the people, but this time it worked out and was fun!

Mine was good! I even managed to take a nap - that tells me it was a good day.

How was yours?

No wonder they are getting movers! I think I'd rather do my own moving than be in that high stress job. It's nice to know that you have connections if Micron doesn't pan out for me!!

After the gym, lunch with the family and a movie, I fell asleep on the couch. Apparently I needed a nap! You should go to the party. Sounds like fun!!!

Barb, my BIL is now in charge (prez?) of three high tech factories. If you ever get tired of Micron...

I don't really like going over to other people's houses but I may still go to the party....

We are still undecided. Wanted to go to the horse races, but there are no races on the 4th. I suggested the zoo and was shot down. I guess I'll find out what happens tomorrow!

Christine, movers are nice. Or so I've heard. I've always had to pack and move myself.

That sounds like a really big house!! So much to pack.

Talked to DH and we might be going to Meridian Speedway to watch the races and then see the fireworks. After BBQ of course.
