1. The termite guy came this morning for our annual treatment. I was very impressed with how professional he was.

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.

I love the smell of honeysuckle. We have some on one side of our house near our bedroom window.

1. The carpet installers are here today!

2. I think we will have all our furniture in the basement back it it's rightful place by this evening.

3. It's an absolutely beautiful day here for having the the windows open all over the house.

2. The honeysuckles in the back yard smell good!

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.

For yesterday:

1. A friend took me out for lunch yesterday to celebrate my move and her getting through a lecture in front of a lot of people.

2. After lunch we toured the historic square in Lawrenceburg. Very interesting and good walking exercise, too ;-)

3. Almost through with unpacking and getting things put away.

Welcome back home, Kay!

I'm glad your move went so smoothly!

1. We had a good time visiting with friends in Wisconsin last night.

2. Jim was able to repair a light fixture for my son.

3. I had an excellent gluten-free breakfast on the way back from Wisconsin this morning.

(It's really cold here....reminds me why we moved to Tennessee!)

Whoopee on your move and all the help you had getting it done! That is wonderful.

2. We are going to Wisconsin today to visit with one of my husband's best friends.

3. I'm really enjoying my time up here in Illinois (but it's chilly!!!).

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.

1. I finally got around to taking care of some financial matters that I had put on hold after I got diagnosed with cancer.

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.

Your move is coming up quickly! How exciting!!

1. I made my first homemade gluten-free pizza and it was great!

2. I got my teeth cleaned at the dentist today.

3. We hit 80 degrees here today for the first time this year. I love being able to wear shorts and sandals on warm days like today.

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!

The move date is May 10 (Mother's Day).

1. Yesterday a friend brought over a storage trailer and she and I worked about 5 hours loading packed boxes and tools until we had it full! Then she drove the trailer to her house to sit while we wait for closing on my house.

2. Most all my packing is done (Yay!) except last minute items and things I thought might be temperature sensitive I can pack in my van later. (All furniture and appliances will be moved by several guys from the church May 10).

3. A friend gave me fresh organic asparagus from her garden that I fixed for supper tonight. I stir-fried in a little olive oil and minced garlic and sea salt just a few minutes. So good!

1. I signed the purchase agreement on the house with 4 1/2 acres that is a dream come true!

2. I will be able to totally pay it off thanks to Ken's hard work all his life. He would have loved this place!

3. So grateful for friends that guided me through this that knew what they were doing when I did not.

4. So thankful to God who heard our prayers and opened the right place just now at the right time!

Congratulations on the sale and on the offer. Lots going on!!

1. I planted 6 more one year old asparagus plants in my asparagus bed and I got one flat of flowers planted in front. (I still have a flat to go.)

2. We are going out to dinner with friends tonight.

3. Jim is 95% done with painting the basement bedroom. (It's a big room.) It's looking terrific.

1. Some property sold that I had in Mississippi.

2. I put a bid on a place today. It is much less than the price they are asking, so if I get it it would be a miracle.

3. I have a lot of friends here that have been helping me look for places. One has invited us to live in their downstairs house if we need a place to stay between places.

That asparagus looks mighty good! Nothing like fresh homegrown produce.

1. I got in 80 minutes at CrossFit and then an 80 minute walk at Crockett Park this morning.

2. I have looked at lots of houses this week and know what I don't want. Glad I have many friends looking around for me for just the right place.

3. Ate lunch at my favorite restaurant on the town square today with a friend who was helping me house hunt. The healthy food and homey atmosphere is a real treat.

That must be something seeing those boxes with Ken's labels on them.....it's sweet.

1. I harvested my asparagus....it wasn't much because the plants are young and this is the first year I could harvest it, but they were TASTY!


2. I took my mom to a surgeon today to see about removing a lump in her abdomen. The surgeon said he didn't recommend doing it. I'm relieved!

3. Jim is finished with the ceiling and trim in the room he is painting before we get new carpeting put in....all that is left is the walls which will be very easy compared to what he has done so far. I'm just happy that he can do things like that.

You are right about the house hunting.

1. Today was rainy and overcast. Since I still have a cough I stayed home all day.

2. I got a LOT of packing done.

3. I am glad Ken saved all our boxes from our move here 3 years ago. They are sturdy and already labeled! His thoughtfulness makes me feel like he's still taking care of us.

I think house hunting is fun, but tiring too. The more you look, the more you understand what you want....and don't want.

1. I got four flats of lettuce seedlings transplanted this morning.

2. I planted a flat of marigolds and spread 5 more bags of mulch.

3. It's raining gently now which is perfect for all my new plants.

For Saturday:

1. We got our basement bedroom emptied out today (except for a treadmill) so it can be painted and recarpeted over the next week or so.

2. I finished planting the marigold border on my second raised flowerbed and spread 5 more bags of mulch.

3. I re-potted 36 arugula seedlings into larger pots. I started them from seed several weeks ago.

I just love this wonderful spring weather!!!!

1. Dirt and mulch are on sale at Lowes now...we stocked up!

2 My raised flower beds that I made a couple years ago finally have enough dirt in them.

3. I'm coloring my hair as I type this...will be glad when the grey roots are gone. On the other hand, I'm just tickled pink to be growing hair....grey roots and all.

I didn't know Aldi's had organic food. I've heard they also have a good selection of Gluten Free products. We don't have one nearby, but I'll have to check it out when I'm close to one.

1. I got 11,000 steps on my Fitbit before noon today because I went to an aerobic class AND a Zumba class....I guess I can just veg out this afternoon!

2. I planted some grass seed in the areas where Jim had dug up the yard working on the drainage problem.

3. Our lawn guy cut the grass this morning for the first time this year.....I just love the sound of a lawnmower.....it reminds me of the lazy summer days of my childhood.

1. I turned in all the paperwork the IRS wants. So glad I got the "Peace of Mind" at H & R Block so they can do the forms and get it all mailed in. (I'm being audited..for the first time in years the gov't owes me)

2. I had a challenging but fun workout at CrossFit this morning.

3. I went shopping at several stores in Alabama with a friend today. Was surprised at how much organic/ health food Aldie's has at very good prices.

So far, I'm loving my fitbit. I got the kind I wear on my wrist and tracks heart rate and sleep. It syncs great with sparkpeople.

1. I just got a rosemary plant to replace the one that died last year from the cold weather.

2. It's clear that the work Jim did in the yard a couple weeks ago resolved a drainage problem we were having.

3. I took a nice walk this morning on a road I hadn't walked on before.

Hey! Let me know what you think of the Fit Bit. I've been thinking about it, too.

1. I'm glad for the coming weekend. It's been a busier than usual week and I'm feeling it.

2. I tried a new cashew spread that I like very much. Better than cream cheese I think.

3. Made a big pot of homemade soup. Supposed to dip down in the 20's the next 2 nights.

I decided against the place I was thinking of buying. Too much of a fixer-upper for me.

Wow! Big things are happening in your world! That's exciting about possibly finding your new home. I'm glad you got your car fixed before it turned into a huge problem.

These are from yesterday (Thursday)

1. I got a FitBit....I'd been thinking of getting one for years.

2. I got several new pairs of pants with 30% from Kohls. After having lost so much weight last year, I'm still working on getting clothes that fit.

3. I also got a new electric toothbrush!!!!

I love fresh asparagus! Isn't it wonderful to reap the fruit of all your labor?!

This is for yesterday:

1. My van had a "burn" smell so I took it to the repair shop to have it checked out. It was the radiator. It was cracked and nearly all the water was gone! I am very thankful I was not stranded over the weekend in some desolate area as I traveled to see family! And I'm also thankful It didn't hurt the engine. And I'm thankful I had the cash to get it fixed. Praising God for all these blessings.

2. I am thankful I managed to get a couple of big things checked off my "must do" list that were weighing heavy on me.

3. Believe I have found our new home. Will know more today ;-)

2. I went to my first Zumba class today. It was fun. I'll go back again.

3 I planted a couple more pots of herb seeds today (lemongrass and Italian parsley).

Yay! Happy for your good news, Kay! Normal is good. (I was in Nashville yesterday doing some shopping).

1. Walked almost 5 miles this morning. (Indoors due to rain)

2. A friend gave me 2 big bags full of nice clothes and shoes to go through. (We wear same size and colors) I found several outfits I really like.

3. We had our monthly community HELP (Healthy Eating Lifestyle Program) tonight. We had many people come and the food was wonderful. Our speaker was an agriculture expert who gave lots of gardening tips.

1. We are iced in again after 73 degrees yesterday! All schools are closed, so the boys and I are having a nice quiet day at home.

2. I have the BEST recipe for taco soup in the crockpot simmering.

3. Got 2 more boxes packed :-)

4. Glad you can have a little reprieve today. That's great news about your checkup and your mom.
