1. Had a good work out at aerobics class this morning.

2. Time for van's oil change and check up. Was able to get in and get that done quickly because nobody else was in line.

3. Oldest son made a beautiful wooden plaque engraved with our new street address to hang outside near the front door.

Kay, I like the shade Jim installed. It will keep your house cooler on these steamy days. Your home is very nice. I love lots of windows.

1. Jim installed a shade in front of a door and two large windows that get a lot of sun. It's cool because it has a solar powered motor that I can control from inside the house. The color of the shade turned out to be perfect for our house.


2. Mommy duckie is laying more eggs in our flowerpot.

3. I made some gluten-free brownies this morning.

For yesterday:

1. Jim scrubbed the tile floor in our sunroom with TSP and got it looking nice and new again.

2. We got lots of veggies from the Farmer's Market yesterday morning.

3. I made rotissery chicken on the grill last night. It's the second time I've done it this summer. It comes out so moist and it's easy to do. We buy pastured chickens from a local farmer.

1. Hubby finished painting the basement!

2. I got in 10,000 steps on my fitbit every day for a week.

3. The professional painters are almost done with the outside of our house. They would have finished today, but it started raining. I don't know how they can work in this heat and humidity.

1. We got a huge amount of the yard cut this morning. It's getting easier since we've cut back most of the overgrown field.

2. I've washed all the sheets today and the boys are putting them back on the beds.

3. I am getting ready to cook some fresh yellow squash and slice some just picked tomatoes for sandwiches. It doesn't get any better than that.

1. The boys and I went to the school work bee this morning. We got the library clean and organized.

2. I made humus for lunch. We put it on wraps and rolled it up with fresh diced tomatoes, cucumbers, and baby spinach. It was very good and a good way to use some of the produce that I've been harvesting.

3. We filled in some holes in the yard and I transplanted a tomato plant that someone gave me.

I'll have to check out that app emoticon

Highlights from past week:

1. Two families that were out of town the past 10 days asked if I'd harvest the produce from their gardens. I got tons of blackberries, tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers and a few blueberries. Kept me very busy!

2. Despite the 90 degree temps every day we managed to get all the grass cutting and yard work done. We even cut back more of the field. The deer and rabbits are loving it.

3. So thankful for air conditioning these days!

I'm glad your son missed the deer too! I barely missed one several years ago....its frightening. Your info about finding out more things about your property as the grass gets cut reminds me of when I moved to Illinois and bought a house in the fall while the leaves were still on the trees and bushes. After all the leaves fell, we discovered we were the proud owners of a cute playhouse and a big storage shed in the woods behind our house!

These are for yesterday.
1. We went to Costco in Knoxville and stocked up on all kinds of food.
2. We got some needed rain.
3. I met a couple of nice ladies that just started coming to our line dancing class.

1. We are gaining on beating back the wilderness. As youngest son mows more of the tall grass we are finding beautiful shrubs and flowers. Also a small creek on one border of the property.

2. We are having thunder storms this evening. Thankful for the rain.

3. A deer ran out and college son almost hit it. So thankful he did not!

2. Got some pants hemmed and mailed off to my son this afternoon.

3. Jim got some paint to repaint the stairwell. The color we picked the first time really didn't look good with the new carpet. I'm sure this one will be fine.

Your bread looks yummy!

1. I've spent several hours the last 2 days sorting and organizing family photos. I've got some doubles set aside to give my older kids. This will be an ongoing project.

2. Youngest son and I did a lot of yard work this week. Our yard is looking more like a park and we're getting our exercise.

3. College son is home for the weekend.

1. I transplanted some volunteer tomato plants into pots this morning.

2. I did a lot of "tidying up" this morning so things look much neater.

3. I had fun swimming with a friend in the lake. (Actually, it was more floating than swimming!)

BTW, my bread turned out great!

1. We are back home in Tennessee after a wonderful 10 days with my youngest son.

2. Both my sons were able to help get a lot of things taken to charity right before we left Illinois.

3. Our house was in one piece when we got home.

(a picture of me with my two sons taken Saturday after doing a lot of cleaning and yardwork)

1. Got some needed shopping and other errands done today.

2. Glad there was no rain today. Our yard is looking like a jungle since we've been gone and it has been too wet to cut grass.

3. A baby bunny was sitting on our front porch this morning. I said "Hello" to it before it hopped off down the steps :-)

Congrats on keeping 35 pounds off! And it is great when you find someone who does your hair the way you like it :-)

1. We went right from camp meeting yesterday morning to the campus of MTSU. My college son will be staying there for the month of June taking summer classes. I am glad we got him all settled in a nice dorm room. All his stuff was already packed from camp!

2. My youngest son and I made it home just before nightfall and got everything unloaded from the van just before a huge thunderstorm hit. Talk about perfect timing!

3. I walked at Crockett State Park this morning and watched a blue heron feeding it's babies high up in a tree. They make a lot of racket when they feed!

3. I've kept 35 pounds off since finishing treatment over a year ago. All from avoiding processed foods.

Yuk about the stomach virus! I've been under the weather the past couple days too with a tummy issue. I think it caused my electrolytes to get out of balance because I started having a lot of issues with muscle cramps all over my body. I drank some electrolye drink and took a magnesium pill. The cramping went away almost immediately. I slept good last night and seem to be better today. I hope you continue to improve and can have fun at camp.

Today, I'm happy about:

1. The baby ducks that hatched on Friday made it though the night last night. Mommy duck took them out for the first time yesterday and they were unable to follow Mommy back into the nest last night. They apparently spent the night under our neighbor's boat dock....I was glad to see all of them this morning. None got eaten overnight by predators.

2. I'm getting together with friends for lunch today.

3. It looks like the weather is going to be beautiful today.

1. Thursday I had a really bad stomach virus and have been weak with no appetite since. I am now starting to feel stronger and a little hungry.

2. We had a safe trip to camp meeting yesterday afternoon.

3. We have nice accommodations and I've slept a lot. Which is why I'm wide awake now at almost 3 in the morning ;-0

1. A mommy duck hatched five baby ducklings yesterday in our next door neighbor's flowerpot. We had been watching her closely for the past month and were really happy to see the ducks made it.

2. We had fun watching the ducklings go for their first swim today and follow mommy duck all around the yard.

3. We bought a huge flat of delicious locally grown strawberries this morning at the farmer's market. The locally grown fresh ones are so much better than the ones at the stores.

2. We had fun at line dancing class today.

3. I'm starting to be able to eat the tomatoes from the tomato plant I bought at Costco several weeks ago. Also, my herbs and salad greens are producing so I've been able to make salads with my homegrown things.

1. Went to aerobics class this morning.

2. My blender that I use almost everyday is going out on me. I found one at Sam's today that is a combination blender and food processor (Ninja). I didn't have a food processor so I'm doubly blessed :-)

3. Cell phone service is not good at our new home, so I purchased a Magic Jack today. I'm thankful I have a son who is installing it on the computer now. We should have home service soon.

Thanks so much, Kay! i've had a lot of help.

1. Two friends helped me clean and disinfect the house I'm moving into. We worked from 7 am until after midnight, even removing an old border from livingroom wall. This was on Tuesday.

2. Early Wednesday morning 3 other friends, who have done professional painting came in and painted the livingroom wall and then my bedroom wall. Looks beautiful!

3. Later Wednesday 3 other friends came to move some furniture early. What a day! We moved nearly everything!!! We left our beds, washer and dryer so we can sleep, bathe and do laundry at one address and get everything set up as much as possible before our scheduled move Sunday.

4. Two other friends helped me arrange furniture and pictures in all the rooms today.

Congratulations on closing on the house!! I know you will be busy, busy, busy with the move.

2. I'm really happy with all the projects that we are getting done around the house now that I'm a lot stronger.

3. Tomorrow, we are leaving for a spur of the moment trip up to Illinois and Wisconsin (for a week) to visit friends and family.

1. Mowed lawn with push mower for 2 hours today. (This will be the last time to mow at our current address since we'll be moving next Sunday).

2. College son finished his finals last week. He is off for a month before he begins summer classes. He is a huge help to me.

3. I made banana chocolate chunk walnut muffins this afternoon. I plan to take some to a friend who works very hard and has a 65th birthday tomorrow.

1. We put a new "closet system" in my closet and now I have about twice as much storage room.

2. Only my husband and I showed up for line dancing class today so we had a nice "private lesson" and got to go over several dances that we wasn't sure about the steps.

3. I found a duvet at a thrift store that will work perfectly with our new color scheme in the master bedroom.

For yesterday:

1. Took a 4 mile walk in Amish country with friends that live there. It was like going back in time.

2. It was a sunny, blue sky, white cloud kind of day. Birds were everywhere singing their songs and flitting about.

3. We had curry for lunch. It was mild and very good. The one who made it spent many years in India. The recipe was originally from there.

Sounds like you have things well underway for your big move!!!

These are for Saturday:

1. We went to a local auction Saturday night. They do it every Saturday and it's a lot of fun.

2. We got a "closet system" for the big closet in the basement. It was a good time to do it because we have to take everything out of the closet to paint and recarpet it this week.

3. I got a hanging basket of flowers that the hummingbirds love. No need to put out hummingbird feeders with these flowers around!
