Great pictures ladies! Kathy, does this mean you finally found your camera?

My next game is on May 3rd, but I won't be playing. That is DD's birthday and we will be going out to eat to celebrate. The next game I will be able to play will by on May 10th. I think it's at Willow Lane. I'll let you know for sure.

Up late tonight. Played Bunco tonight and got home around 9:30. Totally worth it since I won!! About time! LOL!

I haven't heard from Kelli. Hope all is well.

Heading to bed soon. Still have a LOT of work to do tomorrow.

Night ladies!

The other picture I took today is one I take 4 times a year. I am a little late for the spring picture but my camera was unavailable. This is what I use for a cover page on my facebook.

I wish I would have bought the camera a week ago the pink was brighter and the contrast was better three days ago. Oh well I will be walking with my camera now so hopefully I can bore you with my daily pics.

Nice bird picture Christine.

Barb Jackpot was fun and it was kind to me once again. When is your next game?

Anyone heard from Kelli?

DD will be 20. She's a little bummed that she will no longer be a teenager. Poor thing, she's so old! LOL!

Kathy, Jackpot sounds like a much better deal than watching me play softball! Hope you have fun!

Need to head to bed...early morning for me. Talk to you all later!

Roberta, Oh I love those fuchsia plants, so pretty! If you see any hummers please take a picture okay?

Today has been pretty wild getting the trailer ready for the first outing of the year.

How is everyone else doing today?

My DD surprised me today with an early Mother's Day gift--two ornate plant stands and two hanging fuchsia plants for the patio. They are full of buds and will be gorgeous when in full bloom. If any hummers pass by and partake of the sweet treat, I will hang the sugar water container on one of the hangers. Then we enjoyed gourmet sandwiches from Idaho Pizza with chips and drinks. We had a lovely, sweet lunch and visit. Such a blessing.

emoticon Everyone! Busy day here! We are just now getting ready to wash the trailer. We wanted to wait until it got a bit warmer to start in on it. Wow it is so dusty. The inside still smells new though. :)

How old will Sydney be on May 3rd? If I forget please tell her I said Happy Birthday. You are so lucky to have such a sweet daughter

Kathy best of luck in Jackpot!!! And have a blast with your BFF!

I hope everyone is having a nice day!

Christine hope you have fun camping. The estate is progressing. They bug me about when but I am usually waiting on someone in the family to sign a form. So they are their own worse enemy.

Roberta glad to hear that you are feeling better

Barb can't make it this thursday due to a quick overnight trip to Jackpot leaving Thursday coming back Friday. It where my friend wanted to go for their birthday lunch. I didn't say no. Hope I am as lucky this trip.

Kelly hope you are doing well.

My walk yesterday took me by that terrible motorcycle accident. So Sad. Then the silly cops were detouring the cars on to a dead end street what a mess. They could have moved up the street a half a block and put traffic on a through street. Somebody suggested that to them and they just said they could turn around. Unfortunetly a lot of people did not realize it was not a through street until they got to the end of the street. And the trafic circle they have at the end is very narrow and those pulling a trailer couldn't make the turn very well. The garbage truck backs out on garbage day.

Hope the weather is nice for you when you go camping at the Dunes. Loved visiting there when my grandparents camped there. Should be a great time!

Next game is this Thursday at Ann Morrison on Field #2. I will be missing the game on May 3rd. DD thinks that since that it is her birthday, I should spend time with her. Weird, huh? LOL!

Heading to bed so I can be mostly fresh for the day. Night!

So grateful for my DH's continued good health. We are packing up the trailer for a camping trip after two years of not using it due to his heart problem. God is good!

I hope everyone is having a great Monday and a wonderful new week in April!

emoticon Hi everyone!! Hope you are all having a great Sunday.

Barb, yes it is a huge project. :) But I will be taking some time off from it to go to Bruno Sand Dunes next Wednesday. Birding and photography are going to be the focus.

Hi Kathy, Happy Sunday, are you still working on your mom's estate or is that all finished now?

Hi Roberta, I am also so happy to hear that you are going so well.

Kelli, how are you doing?

Hi Kathy, sorry I didn't see your message until now. We are a rag-tag team and wear many different colors. My shirt will be bright yellow all of the time. Were you there? I didn't see you, if so.

Christine, that is a huge project! Sounds like you are making great progress. Today was a good day to stay inside and do inside stuff.

Roberta, I'm glad to hear that you are feeling so much better. Hope you can continue to do so.

I woke up to the rain around 3:00. Then again around 7:00. I did walk to the gym and home and that's it! It was too windy and cold to walk to the library. Looks like we have this weather to look forward to for the next week.

I wish it would just rain at night. Actually I don't mind walking in the rain, but I don't like to walk when it is windy.

OMG! I've been catching up on Dr. David Perlmutter's "Brain Maker," in which he talks about FMT (fecal matter transfer) to support gut micro biome for diseases or disorders of the brain and other parts! This is not a new treatment as it dates back to a Chinese alchemist who used it on patients 1700 years ago! It sounds just awful, but evidently is showing promise. It is processed into frozen pills.

At every crossway on the road that leads to the future, each progressive spirit is opposed by a thousand men assigned to guard the past. Maurice Maeterlinck, 1911 Belgian Nobel aureate. (from "Brain Maker," by David Perlmutter)

I am reading "The Brain Power Cookbook," by Dr. Frank Lawlis (Dr. Phil show) and Dr. Maggie Greenwood-Robinson, author of the Biggest Loser. "More than 200 Recipes to Energize Your Thinking, Boost Your Mood, and Sharpen Your Memory." First printing was 2009, so the book was published before all the info on low carb, high fat, etc., nutrition. That is OK as the info is good--just ignore what is not up to date regarding fats. I will check out the Kindle version to see if it has been edited.

I had to share a moment of joy with you: I am thrilled beyond words! The Volvic mineral water is working! For years acupuncture points on my legs along the Liver Meridian, have been painfully sore! Just now I was touching the acupuncture points along the meridian, and there was no pain! The liver is clear of the toxic aluminum in that Whooping cough vaccine! After eleven weeks of drinking that mineral water, the silica in it has leached out the toxins! You have no idea how special this is. Hugs, Roberta

Barb what color shirt your team wear want to make sure I sit on the correct side, however probably won't see your answer until after the game anyway.

Christine you will need a break from all that cutting, don't want you to wear a blister in your finger. Let me know what you decide. I plan on going to the park early and get a little walk in, maybe 2 miles or so.

I am not sure yet.... I am in a the middle of a huge project. (To put it mildly)

I have cut out 165 of the fourteen inch squares I need, 77 to go, that will hopefully get cut out tomorrow, then I am going to start on the 121 ten inch squares of the inner layer of batting. Which makes a sandwich. Then all the sewing. This is making a mess in my house, so I want to finish this ASAP. I am not even going birding until this is finished. So I can't really be sure how much time this is going to take. emoticon

That's okay, Kathy. My next game is next Thursday at Ann Morrison, Field #2 at 7:45. Maybe that one? And maybe you can drag Christine there?

Sat on the patio at lunch. Moved to the shade after 30 minutes. LOVING this weather!!

Early mtg in the morning, so I'd better head to bed. Nite!

Dang Barb I lost track of time. I was busy working on Estate paper work and when I finally checked the time it was 8:30. Let me know when the next one is, I will be sure to come heckle you before the season is over.

Another beautiful day, actually have been in shorts and I notice today I have tan lines,

Past my bedtime so I will say good night to you all

My next game is Tuesday at Willow Lane on field #5 at 7:45. I'd love to have you all come heckle/root me on! I would have booted the ball too! LOL! Very cool that you were the first game!!

Thanks for the warning about the ticks. 50% chance of rain on Saturday. Might be better to try the next Saturday after that??

Heading to bed...meant to be in bed 15 minutes ago. Oh well. Good night!

Roberta, a heard about a fellow birder and her 2 kids walking right into a fresh hatch of ticks at Lucky Peak. She didn't have a fun trip home with her kids screaming the whole way. That must have been dreadful. Thanks for the warning!

Kathy, I have been planning some tips around here with my DH... so I am not sure about the walk and the watching (heckling) of Barb.... hehe!!!

Oh I have 84 fourteen inch squares cut out for my rag quilt. Woohoo. Only 148 more to go! Then I will be cutting out the batting. I think all the cutting is going to be the hardest part.

A few days ago, the news man issued a warning about ticks on the green belt, and if you walk there, stay in the middle of the path.

Christine the sad thing is I just bought this camera in November I have no clue as to where it disappeared to. Pic of the day would be a fun thing to do here. I haven't played softball in years and years and years. But don't you think it would be fun to go and heckle Barb, I mean root her on.

Is this coming Saturday suppose to be nice? Is it time we get together for a walk.

Oh Kathy get a camera, I love pic of the day! I like to take a picture of something random almost everyday. :)

I am not much on softball but where do people play at Ann Morrison? I guess you are like so many of my friends that used to play softball...

sorry about the news cast, but I would have done the same thing!

Nice picture Christine, sure wish I could find my camera. Might have to buy a new one.

Barb Willow park and Ann Morrison are equal distance for me. But maybe a game at Ann Morrison I could talk Christine into coming and spectating with me.

A fun fact about Willow Park my softball team at the time played the very first game on the field. We were on the news and of course I don't do well with a camera pointed at me so on the news for all to see I booted a ball, such a fond memory of playing softball.

I had a blast at Celebration Park!

Roberta, I don't have anything good on my fridge but I love yours! I really like the self cleaning part! LOL

Barb, I have heard that you are not supposed to plant until after the snow melts on Shaffer Butte. But I think you would be okay if you just watched for frost. Right? Great Score on getting new stuff at Target!!

Kelli, are you back at Jackpot? LOL?

Hi Kathy!

It seemed like a chilly day to me! I love that it is going to be warmer for the next few days. Got my grocery shopping done and even did some "me" shopping done. Went to Target and got myself a shirt, a new sweater and a purse. Tomorrow will be for fun. Might plant my veggies...gotta check to see if it's safe to do that yet. Definitely going to walk to the library!

I took a side trip on my nutrition "wagon" today down memory lane and found that it wasn't all that great! Wasn't as I remembered it, so I will steer the horses to stay on the main road, which is better traveling. Lesson learned!

that roadrunners legs are longer then mine, I am jealous.

I am not running the race for the cure it is on the same day as a race I signed up for at the first of the year.

Barb if I would of read the post earlier I would of dug out my umbrella and cheered you on at your game.

If I could I would sit further away from the airbag, but then I can't reach the gas peddle. I am thinking of having it turned off. I might do that when I take it in for the recall on the airbags.

I have been getting my outdoor walks in between the rain.
Hope I can do the same tomorrow.

Well my carriage is about to turn into a pumpkin so I will catch you all later.

Roberta, thanks for the information! I will have to check my air bag too. Love online classes. Glad you were able to find one that works for you.

Christine, great job on getting steps in. Today was a hard day to get outside to walk...sunny, cloudy, sunny, rainy, etc.

I had another late night meeting tonight. Luckily it only lasted 25 minutes so I have time to get stuff done tonight. Hoping to get to bed early tonight since I was only in bed last night about 5 hours.

Roberta that is very useful information! I will check my airbag too. I am on my short side so I may not be where I should be.

Getting ready for a short walk. I need to amp up the movement where I can in my day. I am struggling getting up to the steps I want to have. Today I will get 10k.

Yesterday I took an online class and test on Defensive Driving, offered by the insurance company through the National Safety Council, to reduce my car insurance premiums and passed with 92% correct (23/25). But the most important lesson was to keep MINDFUL while driving my car, and taking care of it. I will take another in three years. One new thing I learned was to keep my chest 12"-15" away from the airbag and make sure that the airbag is aimed at my chest, NOT MY FACE! (Will check that out today. I may need another cushion to sit on!) With chronic fatigue, I have cancelled appointments because I was too sleepy to drive my car safely. That online class was a blessing.

Enjoying the last day of nice weather (at least for a couple days) as much as I can. I will sit outside for lunch and do my workout outside as well. Might even make some of my loops at work go through the outside parking lot.

What are your plans for today?

Went to the zoo today with my brother, his wife and his kids and his grandkid. Apparetntly, EVERYONE in Boise decided it was time to go to the zoo. Spent some time reading in the sun too and then took a nap on the couch. Up way too late now, but I might be able to sleep in a little tomorrow.

Nite!

I love it when the casinos are nice to me...it just doesn't happen very often. Welcome back! Is your race in May the Race for the Cure? I'm doing that one too.

Christine, I think you can make the fries by slicing them yourself and putting them on cookie sheets. I'd probably line the cookie sheets with aluminum foil first.

I agree that we need to plan some hikes. This Saturday isn't so good, but maybe next Saturday or the one after? I'm open on Fridays too if anyone else is!

Hello everyone

I am back from my mini vacation was gone longer then planned.

I went to Elko to visit a friend the casinos were kind to me. Them coming home through Jackpot the casinos were very very kind to me. I cashed out quick and left so I would not give it back.

I have a lot of catching up to do around the house. The weeds are trying to take over again. Did get some work done on my mother's estate. That seems to be moving forward at a nice pace. Only a couple of siblings are bugging me for their money so that end has not been to bad.

I think my next race is in May, I should go look at what is happening in April. I could always sign up for a virtual race. But I prefer the live ones.

So maybe Christine should take us birding so we can learn something on our walks.

Ladies it is hiking season, when are we going?

Got to get some sleep now.
Have a good evening

Here's my recipe for sweet potato fries. I them with a mandolin so they are evenly sliced. They look more like potato chips. I put them on my Pampered Chef stones and spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle with garlic salt and bake at 400' for 20 - 25 minutes. That's it!

I am looking forward to this weekend. The weather will be soooo perfect!

Hi everybody!!!

emoticon Kathy, when is your next race?

Kelli, I am working on lightening my load for hiking. I am getting e-bird on my phone so that should help but not having to carry a book of some kind. :) Sorry the gaming wasn't so good but certainly glad the trip was relaxing!

Barb I think I could make sweet potato fries too. I know you have been killing it at work so IF you get time I would like to get this recipe too!

Hi Roberta, how are you doing? I hope you are getting stronger day by day.

Good Morning Everyone,

Jackpot was not kind for gambling but very fun and relaxing. It was so nice to get away for the day. I had a good time.

Barb Adulting is such hard work. I want some new clothes too, but I need to lose about 50 lbs. I am loving the nice weather, and the weekend should be awesome. OMG, your dinners sound awesome. Do you have a good recipe for sweet potato fries?

Christine LOL on the not thirsty. We dont hike, so I cant imagine carrying a pack with me. I havent been to the botanical gardens in years. Oh how fun to sign up, and close by too. That will be great fun.

I am going to try to get out today and go for a run. I have been so lazy lately.

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, "I'm Possible!"

Don't ask yourself what the world needs-ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that because what the world needs is more people to come alive.

Instead of saying I'm frustrated, say I'm fascinated.

Barb, yes we signed up... I really do love the gardens. Wow lots of people were hiking table rock today! And it looks way too hot in the afternoon... :)

Wow your cooking is so impressive, I envy your cooking skills for sure! Good job on those steps too!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day today!

$75 for both of you? For the summer/year? I get you could get enough visits in to make it worth your while. And think of all the pictures you could take!

Made buffalo chicken and sweet potato fries for dinner tonight, stew and cornbread muffins for tomorrow and beef enchiladas for Tuesday. Feeling productive. :) Then I took a walk about town...only need 300 more steps to make my step goal!

Ten pounds is a lot to carry but that's about what it takes for a hike. I carry a lot of different things. Trying to carry less than 10 when actually hiking though. PS water is heavy! Makes me want to say that I am not thirsty LOL

Hope you can get what you want for clothes. Yes sometimes being an adult is not fun! I want a couple of summer dresses this year, so I will see how that works out too

Today we are going to the botanical gardens. We are thinking about getting a membership. I think it may be a great place for birding that isn't very far. But we would need to use it quite a bit to make it worthwhile. The photographer membership is $75 and we would be able to take four people in at no cost. And all the pictures we take are our own.
