good morning ..... I can't say I woke up this morning. More like I opened my eyes, saw that it was actually daylight but then wanted to curl up in bed (all day). Of course the furbies would have none of this. It was time for their morning snack & to have the heater on. So here I am bleary eyed with a strong coffee in hand. I haven't felt like this for years. emoticon

Janice(Fl) a nature strip is a strip of council owned grassed land between the pavement & the road in towns & cities residential areas. Some people plant them up with gardens but most just leave them grassed & the trees the council plant.

I rarely iron anything these days. I found that if I hang straight from the line & then most garments are ready to wear without ironing.

Kathryn I doubt anyone will want this HUGE thing. it is massive & comes in 2 parts .... the upper section is the mirror & the lower is the drawers I've hated from the day my idiot (then) husband bought it.

I like the sound of 3 walks and I know the furbies would love it too. In the afternoons I often take them for a short 2nd walk round the Hill across the road from me. We generally go for a long walk in the mornings.

Janice (Id) have fun at the game. I personally LOATH football & cricket. Not sure about in the US but here I see them as institutionalized drug & alcohol abuse with the junior league a training ground for that mentality.

Well thats my gripe for the day. I sure hope you all feel better than I do at the moment. All will be fine though coz my darling Sister is coming today & she always makes me feel good & keeps me laughing

Good Morning Team!!!

I'm up early but getting on this post a little late!!!

Sharyn, what is a nature strip? Is that a place people leave furniture and things they don't need? Very nice!!!!

Kathryn, GREAT job on your walks this morning!! We also try to get out for our walk around 6:30-7am so the weather is a little cooler for us.

Janice, Enjoy the game tonight!!!!

I just finished small load of ironing. Going to make us a lunch now.

Hope everyone is having a Fantastic Friday!!! emoticon

Kathryn, glad that you got some of your walks in this morning before it gets too hot.

Hope everyone has a fun day today.

I am heading tonight to the first home game of the high school football season. It might rain so I will take a raincoat with me.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Wish I lived near you, I would love a dressing table. Years ago I got one from my Grandmother but did not know the worth of it and sold it. Oh the dumb things we do when we are young.

I took three walks yesterday and it got to hot in the afternoon to do my Sparking in my little home office. It has wrap around windows that even though I have a black curtain up It still gets pretty warm in here in the afternoon. I have taken to going to bed at 8 pm and the office is still to warm at that time. I was getting up at 7 am and off taking my walks. Today I got up at 5:30 and got part of my Sparking done before my 7 am walk. I have an other walk planned for 9:30. The scale went down 1 pound. I thought there would be a water weight gain as my feet have swelled with all the walking yesterday.

I AM A FIGHTER, A WARRIOR I AM DETERMINED TO NOT BE OVER WEIGHT . I WILL STAY ON TRACK
I choice to conquer!!!!!

Who I am really keeps surprising me.

good morning all. Another 5.30 start this morning but it isn't a bad thing today as I need to get more rearranging done & the spare bed made up for my sister & her hubby. They are coming tomorrow to reassemble the bunks & move a dressing table out to the nature strip for someone to take home.

Irene, glad that you had some time to get out. I don't know much about wine. The only thing I need to know is "do I like it". LOL

Hope everyone has a terrific Thursday.

Janice, I know that you can't wait for your family to visit!!

evening everyone. Yes Janice they have been visiting. The Mr is quite at ease feeding & drinking here but Mrs is still not sure. She will perch in the tree for a short while but never eats.

I am off to bed now after watching 'Titanic' with Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet. Always a good movie no matter how often I've seen it.

Have a great day everyone emoticon

Hi on Thursday , sorry I don't get on here so much now. Early mornings are my sparking time, I have been home mainly. But I did go to a women's club on Monday evening. It was a fun evening with a quiz, wine and nibbles. The team I was in did win the general knowledge part of the quiz but failed in the wine related quiz. We all like a glass of wine in our team , but knew nothing if the growing process or names of grapes etc. it was a fun evening, I need a few fun breaks . Have a good day , Irene

I by passed my computer problem and am here to stay as long as I don't mess it up again. I think next chance I get to visit with my walking buddy's daughter I will get her to show me how to do the things she does to my computer. I need to be more independent when it comes to this computer.
Hubby is feeling a little better today but just doesn't have the strength he had before the cancer treatments. The doctor says it will take him a few weeks to get his strength back, until then I am waiting on him hand and foot and enjoying it, so is he. I spoil that man.

Pam, glad hubby is feeling better. I have never had anything to do with dialysis but I imagine it's effect must be exhausting for you both .... emotionally & physically.

Janice(Fl) your body clock is wired as crazily as mine. it woke me at 5:45 this morning, which is better than the 4:45 it sometimes does. When I wake that early these days I let the dogs out & go back to bed & thankfully generally go back to sleep BUT I often feel like crap when I wake later. I cant seen to win either way.

I bet you will have a fantastic time with all your family.

I only had Trisha's fur baby for the morning. And she was quite content but glad to see her Mummy.

Janice (Id) have a great time at trivia night. I've been to one of those.

Well once again It's brekky time for me & mt feathered friends are calling to me as well.

have a fantastic day in everything you all do

Wow, Janice, you are going to have a house full next week.

I am going to Trivia night tonight. Until then, I will keep myself occupied doing who know what. Laundry!! I forgot a load in the washer and now I will wash it all over again..Had a short nasty rain storm come thru yesterday afternoon. It knocked power out in some places, but I am not affected.

Hope everyone has a nice productive day!!

Yesterday I tried to use a chair for the step stool. I fell and now my new knee has a bruise and a swollen spot on the side. I will have to watch it and if it gets any worse, I need to call the surgeon. Doesn't hurt much, but looks like "oh crap!" I did do 20 minutes on the bike and 10 minutes on the treadmill. Will see what it feels like in a couple hours.

The summer holidays is the long break for our schools too. Ours start during the week before Christmas & they return near the end of January. The days change slightly each year according to where falls in the week.

Our stupid governments don't provide for air-conditioning here despite the heat we have and almost EVERY year the worst heat hits as the poor kids return to school. it is the most ridiculous policy I have ever come across. It's the same in Public Housing. They provide heaters but not cooling & that is the more expensive. I guess there is a method in their madness but I don't like it one bit.

I will be baby sitting my friends little West Highlander today as she needs to go out for the day. Little Alice is still adjusting to life without her sidekick Charlie so her 'mummy' thought it better to not leave her alone all day just yet.

Have a great day everyone. It's brekky time for me.

Hello. We have some schools in the area that have a totally different holiday system to the mainstream schools, even though they are still in the regular school system. They start in August early on, they have A/C where normal schools do not. They get a month off at Christmas time and another month in March as well as all the stat holidays etc. The thought is, that with only 1 month off school at a time, they retain more of the information they have learned. I don't know if that is true but those schools are full so something works.

School resumes on Wednesday here. Where my son lives they went back to school on Thursday July 31. August is still too early since schools around here did not start until after Labor Day when I was growing up.

yes Gini we are very lucky here to have such a wide variety of bird life (even for inner city) .... native and introduced.

CRIKEY Gini .... I am SO very glad my train fares aren't that expensive or I may never get to see my 4 grandsons who live just 2 hrs away.

This morning I went to a plant nursery who specializes in indigenous plants & bought 4 native shrubs that attract birds

Hi. In the early hours of Monday , sleep evading me again? Thanks for your support I try not to vent too often . Yesterday was a stay home calm day , I put a meal in the crock pot early, then I had what seems like tons if paper work to go through ,. I am now the official banker and keeper it all family paper work . I don't like the job hut someone has to do it . I spent a few hours on it but did get most of it in labelled files so is theory I should be able to find anything fast ,
My ddil called me she sounds so ill and was in bed , telling me she's to have an endoscopy today, I think she will need a wheel chair as she's so weak, something ? In her stomach is being investigated, we are all very worried over her. So she's on my mind now,
Have a good week, Irene

Sharyn. That parrot is beautiful. We don't get large birds like that here. I live in Canada. There are big birds but more like crows and owls and hawks. They don't feed on seeds. However, when the occasional squirrel is not vigilant, it becomes a tasty snack. Ugh. I took the day off today. It has been unseasonably chilly and wet here for about a week and is not due to return to normal temps of 26C until Thursday. I hope they are right as DD and family ( with my darling grandsons, 2 and 3 here for the weekend coming. I love to see them as they live 4 hours away and the train fare is about $250 to get there and back for 1 person and too far to go for a quick stay. They ar e making it a week long vacation with 3 days here and 2each at 2 other friends in southern Ontario while they are down here. Have a marvelous Monday all.

YES!!! the Rosella has brought his mate into feed. She hasn't settled enough to eat yet but she sat in the tree & watched me for over 15 minutes. Who knows ... I may even end up with the family coming in eventually.

If you would like to see the Rosella I have posted a photo of it (in my tree) on my spark page

good morning everyone. last night was a balmy sort of night for late winter and this morning is quite mild so I reckon the forecasters might be right with the prediction of rain.

Janice glad to hear you enjoyed the evening despite it being a short one.

I took the furbies walking in the morning yesterday but by late afternoon they were wanting another so we went for a stroll around the Hill.

I really enjoy a bowl of hot porridge on a frosty morning. Your Grits sound similar but a lot smoother than they way I cook porridge.

have a fantastic time doing what ever you do & may the force be with all the way emoticon

No resting today at least for right now. Still working on repairing where the moles did some damage in my landscape rocks. When it is done it will look a lot better. Had to remove all rocks and sift out the dirt, clean the rocks, put down landscape cloth and put the stepping stones back in and replacing the river rocks now. Took a break and that is why I am inside on the computer. Time to finish. No rest for me till evening.

Hope every one had a super Sunday!!

Hubby changed his mind about the grits. It is not some thing I usually cook for him but I had bought myself some Cream of Wheat and it put him in mind of having grits. But he changed his mind.
I walked over to the supermarket today and up to the library not quite as far as I walked yesterday but still a good walk.

Good Morning Team!!!!!

Last night was a FAST one!! We got there around 8:30pm and left by 11pm. Did some dancing, and lots of walking!!!!

emoticon Job Kathryn on your walking yesterday!!! Do you make your hubby homemade grits or just the instant? I haven't made them in quite some time!!!

emoticon Job Janice on getting your yard work & laundry done yesterday!!! So will you get to relax today???

emoticon Sharyn, glad the lone parrot came to the seed block....hope the mate will show up!!!! I've never thought about haning a seed block, we do have green parrots that fly around here. That would be so cool to see them eating!! We have bluejays right now coming to our bird feeders.

Hoping everyone enjoys their Sunday!!! I'm meeting my friend today at Mo's Bagel & Deli ...which is a new restaurant for us to try out....hope it is good. emoticon

The lone parrot came straight in & immediately started feasting on the seed block, then returned later. I'm hoping it will bring it's mate soon.

Irene you go ahead and vent or share what you want we are all here for you that is what a support team is for. When I here your problems or some one else's it makes me see how small mine are.

My mouth is still hurting from where I bit it when I was eating before my mouth was un numb from dental work on Tuesday.
Hubby went off for his last day of cancer treatment to day with a box of chocolates for the people doing his treatments. They said they should be giving him a box he was so upbeat and funny was the highlight of their day. Hubby so likes to make people laugh that is one of the things I love about him. He is always making me laugh.

absolutely vent Irene ..... or anyone for that matter. We are here for support for anything and through anything.

Janice a sputum test is when they check the gunk I spit up for any deep seated bugs in the lungs. They have a tendency to avoid the general antibiotics permanently which might be why I seem to have a constant low grade infection. I go on antibiotics & it clears up for a couple of weeks but then returns. Not sure how they would deal with it but hopefully they can

Irene, We are always here to help you vent. The team members heard plenty about two years ago when my son was dating a very nasty women. I called her a NAB. Going thru trying times does trigger for some of us emotional eating. In our goal to eat healthy, we do not need to binge. Any time you need to vent or talk things out, we are here. Janice (Indiana)

Hope everyone has a great day. It is sunny here in Northern Indiana and hope to be a great day. Football season starts for the local high school tonight. Time files so fast these days. Pretty soon it will be winter again. Where did our summer go??

Looking back at past chats I thought what a pathetic letter I put in last time. I was feeling low. We had a couple of bad days here but today had started calmer and I hope it stays that way.
Yes we have respite care here too but dh is not ready for that yet. He is still very aware of people and places and likes familiar things and routine. He needs that . He would resent and hate being in a strange place with people he didn't know.
When things get me down I walk away either into another room or go out if it's convenient to do so. I met a friend on Wednesday for coffee and chat and unwound with her, I can leave my husband for a short time.
Sorry I try to stay off this topic on most teams I am in a caregivers team where we unload out problems and seek advice,
I am ok it's a fine day, I need to go buying fruit and veg for weekend. Thank you for caring. Irene

I went to my GP this morning and there were no surprises. he agrees with me that the current shortness of breath is a combination on not fully recovering from the last bout of bronchitis and a lifetime of asthma catching up with me. He did suggest we get a sputum test done in case there is some bug lurking deep down in the lungs though

good morning everyone. I'm hoping you have all had a great day & that all has gone well for you.

my furniture rearranging is going along slowly. I do a bit & rest a bit but getting as much done as I can before my Sister & her hubby come to move the heavy stuff & put the bunks back together.

I had a good sleep last night & woke feeling ready to face the day. After I take the furbabies for walkies I am off to my GP to get all the test results & see where we go from here.

Getting ready to run up to Target!!!! Janice, you working there again for the holiday season?
Have a nice walk & be careful with your nails today.....don't pull so hard on the chair!!!

Kathryn, Your hubby is funny!! I also like flipping my pillow over for the cooler side!!!

Sharyn, Thank you for the Men at Work video "Down Under".....I always liked that song, in fact we saw them in concert years ago at our local racetrack. Lee just did the rearranging of furniture in our living room. It looks so much better!!! How did you do with yours??

Hope everyone enjoys your day!!!! emoticon

I am having a great day so far. Great spins on the wheel. I am going to clean out 1/2 of the garage as my chore for the day and then walk around the subdivision a couple of times. Nice and sunny, but not too hot so far. My nails look nice, so I will be careful while doing my cleaning!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

good morning from the Land Down Under. Here is a little song to get you moving ....(sorry about the stupid ad)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfR9iY5y94s

Kathryn I keep my nails short because they crack & split all the time. I have tried various supplements to stop it with no luck so I just keep them short.

I will be doing a bit of furniture moving today as I rearrange the bedrooms

Have a great day everyone.

I just hate it when I break a nail. The nails on my left side break rarely I am right handed. I let them grow out one time and people said how nice they looked but I thought they were to long and cut them back to match my right hand.

Hubby just can in and said I was cooler than the other side of the pillow, I don't know where he gets this stuff from but he just cracks me up some times.

Irene I hope you can take some me time, we all need it.

Janice stay out of those cookies!!!! emoticon

Kathryn, I wished I lived in your area. A crown from my dentist is $1100 and I don't get them too often.

Irene, You need to take some time for yourself. My Dad had Alzheimer's and if I was gone for awhile, he didn't know it. He lost all track of time. Can you get a friend to stay while you run for some pamper time. Here in the US we have what we call respite care. They give you a little break from your responsibilities.

Oh Well, it is getting near time to head out and get pampered for awhile. After I am home, I have some yard work to do. I wear gloves so my manicure will be fine. I broke a nail the other just by pulling out a chair from the dining room table. No damage done while working on the tractor, but pulling out a chair - cheezhhhhh.

Enjoy your pamper day you so deserve it

Sharyn the dentist used the anesthetic gel but it still hurt to have the needle put in. My jaw is so hurting now that I wrote a note to hubby that I would not be talking tonight, he laughed and gave me a thumbs up. When I got home from the dentist it was lunch time and I made the mistake of eating a sandwich, bite the inside of my mouth all up and did not feel it. I go back to the dentist on the 29th for one last filling, I will have soup planned to eat when I get home. They also want to put in three crowns at $500 dollars each. I said I would save up for that, should take a year and a half or so. They are all three in the back of my mouth on the side I use to eat on. I have been eating on the other side for 4 months now and see no problem. I wish my dental plan paid for this but they do not.

Wednesday will be a pamper-me-day. I go to the salon at 10 AM for a manicure and pedicure. I am going to have my toe nails painted red and the finger nails bubble bath.

After all the yard work I have done, I snapped two nails today. One pulling out a chair and the other one just happened. I wear gloves when I work in the yard.

Enjoy what is left of Tuesday and have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

she is going to spread them some of our favourite walking spots. as Old Charlie's worsened he became very comfy walking in certain places because he knew them so well so we will visit them gradually and leave a little bit of Charlie in each place.

the death of Robin Williams is so tragic & terribly, terribly sad. My heart & prayers goes out to his family as they come to terms with it.

my new aircon arrived late yesterday afternoon. I installed last night & works beautifully. It is so much quieter than the others I have. I guess they improved the technology for portable aircons. I can look ford to a another cool summer.

I hate needles in the mouth too ..... thankfully they have some great anesthetic gels now & I insist them being used before the needle.

I will going on a walk with my dear Friend today as she spreads the ashes of her sweet old fur baby after he crossed the rainbow bridge last week.

I hope you all have a wonderful day AND a more productive day than I had yesterday. I got lost in Downton Abbey & just veged out all day. BUT I do feel like I could tackle the lawn mowing today so thats a plus

weekends for me are no worse that during the week. Every day is a battle to NOT eat sweet foods.

Janice how was your shopping??

Janice (Id) you certaily get a lot done & are very handy around the yard.

I have to try to do some weeding today. I need to go walking early because my new aircon is due for delivery today sometime.

Good Monday Morning Team.......and Sharyn....Good Night for you!!! emoticon

Irene, I always find my Weekends very hard to control my eating/drinking. We go out Saturday nights and I have a few emoticon with my hubby!! Then we make easier meals with just putting a frozen Digiorno pizza in the oven. I've cut back on portions....but it still doesn't help. Will need to work harder on this!!!! I would have to say, Have what you like and join in with the fun with everyone, but keep the portions much smaller!!!!

Sharyn, Glad to hear your test came out good!! Good Luck with your GP!!

Janice, Glad to hear you got all your yard work done and Good luck with the garage today!!!!

I'm going to get my stretches, ab roller, leg exercise, walk done this morning. It is my emoticon done!!! I have my Publix list all written out and my coupons ready!!!!!!

Hope everyone has a Marvelous Monday!!!! emoticon

Weekends are my weak time I always seem to go off plan then mainly because weekends involve other people Social eating ! I must try to find ways of dealing with that,
I did ok on main meal at our sons home but did have a slice of birthday cake , I always feel I must do it someone has made or bought one , this was a belated one for my husbands birthday so I felt I had to have a slice.
Anyone else find the weekends mean extra eating?
Have a good week , Irene

Busy day for me. I got the lawn mowed finally. I waited until I saw the mower was totally fixed and I put back on the side panel. I am going to put down the grass clippings tomorrow on the garden. I put in a mulch pile the first cart of clippings. When that was all done I started to clean one side of the garage. I plan to finish that tomorrow also. I am really tired and heading to bed so.

Hope everyone had a good day today.

good morning everyone. I had a good sleep last night despite the Old Dame Furbaby (she is 14) being a little restless early in the night. The others slept through beautifully.

Kathryn I hate when I forget to turn my tracker on but even worse when I forget to turn it off after my walk.

Janice I love chocolate soft serves too. After all that dancing I doubt the visit to Wendy's would do much harm.

Sheryl I had a very lazy day yesterday too but today is housework day and shopping day then this afternoon I go for the heart stress test. Did you get to the pool??

Irene, glad you got to go to the supermarket.

Janice (id) my lawns are having their winter rest at the mo but they'll be growing crazily soon so it will back to weekly mowings for me very soon. I hate gardening these days so mine has got completely out of control. My sister cringes when she comes here but too bad.

Good tired is nice Pam. We used to take my Mums friend out for lunch sometimes to get him out of the nursing home too but sadly he has slipped too deep into dementia now & hardly leaves him room let alone the the nursing home. Plus he recently had another stroke so his waking is restricted now.

well it's brekky time for me so have a great day everyone emoticon

Pam that was nice that you got to take your hubby out to dinner.

Took a walk to the supermarket and got water again. We are drinking about a gallon a lot with the heat. I pushed home my cart with 3 gallons of water, it is getting easier to do. I am going to walk up to the library and stop at Starbucks for a frozen lite drink on the way back.

I wrote out a long page and it keeps deleting so going to make it short
We took hubby out for dinner last night because he has not been eating much again and just to get him out of the nursing home . He ate half his steak and half a potato...so he did good and was so happy to get out. He did get tired but it was a good tired.
I hope everyone has a great day and will try and catdh up with threads later.

Going to play in the dirt for awhile today. Working in the garden is relaxing for me. It isn't very big, so it doesn't take much to keep it up. I try not to let it get away from me. If I don't keep at it every few days, then it becomes a chore until I get it under control again.

Lawn must be mowed today and that well be fun since I got the deck on the mower correctly this time. If I didn't get it corrected I was going to follow my son's advise and call my nephew Steve.

Hope everyone has a enjoyable Sunday!!

Hello on Sunday
Yesterday our son took me super market shopping so I could stock up on few things I can't buy locally, the. We went to our favourite restaurant for lunch . I like it as it's different food there, I had a thin base pizza with goats cheese and baked figs topping. Very tasty too. I don't eat much meat,
I collected a stitched picture from the art gallery where they frame pictures . I am very pleased with it and it's on the wall now, so it was a good day all round,
Hope you are all having a good weekend. Irene

Got my water Friday and I good walk but forgot to check my tracker so don't know how many miles I walked. I checked it today and walked 2.19 miles, this is my rest day. I did not do my exercise routine but did do my push ups. I am doing a streak of 100 days and am on day 40. Today I tried to see how many I can do in a roll, did 50.

emoticon Janice!! Did you see my video of our racoon in our front yard on FB?

Wow, don't think I could pull the trigger of a shotgun and kill them. Maybe a possum or anything that was attacking me.
