No, no one seems to come here anymore so have to say I am NOT writing to myself. Good luck with the fridge and hope the day goes well. I hear from you, Rose, Becky and Ginger by email so thinking why bother here anymore...so I need thoughts lady. I check each day and soon will stop that too.
Hot and humid way too early this year..last year it was very cool for this time.
Off to look for a fridge this afternoon...hope I can decide on one...did not really want stainless but do not want black or white...their are some light ivory ones but not in all appliances and am not picking out a stove or dishwater for upstairs yet....may get dishwasher for downstairs.
Not a good morning as I just read one of my favorite actors passed at 86, Di*k Van Patton...loved the shows and movies he was in but we both adored Eight is Enough and I used to sing the theme song while I pushed the kids on the swing at daycare or at nap time and they loved it....both Chuck and I had tears this morning.
Candice sorry to hear about your tummy...happens to me sometimes with some ice creams.
Well I am off to check my eggs to see if they are boiling yet, then mail and breakfast and dice up my pears and the list goes on LOL
Yesterday was nice at DS'S....but it wore me out and tummy has been bothering me...thought it might of been the ice cream....I do not do dairy and forgot my pills. Did not sleep well and the pup is not good either....very weak today...yesterday must of been too much for both of us.
Storms coming later...gotta get shopping for a fridge his week..but do not feel up to it.....need one when the kids come for their extra food and breast milk.
Sue...supper sounds yummy but keep the tums handy! Lol.
Baked brownies from scratch last night and made a chocolate buttercream frosting...forgot to put the pecans in the batter so put them in the icing...gives a nice crunch toan obey gooey brownie.
I am still having problems smellin and tasting from that bad cold I had the last week in April.....I do not like that I cannot taste or smell what I am cooking...sometimes I will get a wife of something strong but itdoesnot last very long. Sampled the brownies but could not taste very well...just the sweet...anyone have this issue and know what to do...been using a saline solution in my nose.
Dh is fishing today....rain later with severe weather again and rain in the am but DS should be able to grill it later Sunday.
On tap for today eat, workout and cooking today, so that makes me happy, especially when it's "hot Italian sausage for me for tonight's dinner, in a yummy sub roll I bought then sauteed with some scallions and multi-colored peppers...in that yummy roll topped with a slice of melted....Swiss cheese....makes my mouth water...LOL
Well I am off to check my other boards, mail and then get the day started...
Candice, oh Jasper is so cute. Yikes on the cat room Candice, that is too much for you, but I know you don't have anyone else to do it. Glad you were smart with the other stuff and wish you'd have waited till the next day for the gal to take care of the cat room too.
Hoping the weather gets nicer so the flowerbed can get done soon.
Have a nice Friday ladies and a wonderful weekend, take care of those Dad's on Father's Day.....
Still very sore, especially in my hips from scrubbing every part of the kitties room. I mean scrubbing using lots of elbow grease that I do not have....do not use chemicals in their room...but it is lean for awhile now.
Got my sweeping done in the rest of the house on the carpets and moved some furniture...only stuff I could without hurting myself...will do rest later, gal comes tomorrow but got other stuff I need help with. Gonna take some curtains down and wash and put some new up. Hopefully..but gotta steam or iron them.
The pup went for a bath and nail clipping today..they list their groomer..trying to find another one. He is very fluffy and clean! But all that fluff drags grass in when he goes out with all this wet weather.
They should be starting the new brick flowerbed soon...but they need dry weather to brick...we are not replacing the tree there just a flower bed raised since it is a wet spot and nothing will grow there. Then I will put a large wind spinner in there ..it is off the patio so we can see it.
Wow quiet here this week, sorry you have had one of those alone weeks like I have. Hope Rose is alright, I dropped her an email but haven't heard. I know Ginger is very busy this time of year at work and since that is the only time she gets to answer us without a computer at home; I can understand perfectly. Becky I know is busy with graduation stuff and family.
Candice wow you have been busy and doesn't surprise me you are sore. Yikes on the bed. As you said the guys can take care of it. You take care and get some rest in and do some Pilates.
Well I am off to mail, eating, workout and then "lots of stuff", first of which is to cook up my fish and dice and slice my toppings.
Dh decided he wanted help cleaning his closet so we did it yesterday and today worked on reorganizing and moving around two rooms. Ordered a pull out bed for our grand daughter for one room...well not impressed..it is not easy to pull out or put back but Dh or DS can do it ..I cannot and it is very springy and moves a lot...like it causes my motion sickness to kick in...bummer...but I bet for our grand it will be fine....will put a permanent bed in later..just not ready to take the time to get a comfy one. It looks great folded up into an autamaon ...still have our sons old twin to get ride of laying against the wLl in there.
So am sore from messing around with that
They got our tree and roses replaced but one in the wrong spot and one plant is wrong...they had to see that the plant they replaced is not like the others...duh...how hard is it to match plants.....oh and they dug and moved my iris instead of the lilies.....I told dh to call and have them do it right..he thinks it looks fine...that is not the point...they did not do what I the homeowner wanted...so they should correct it...right???????? They also brok a glass rain gauge and left the broken glass all over the walk where we take the pup out...should of left us a note that there was broken glass....my son cleaned it up....are we paying them to do thing right and that is common curtisy to tell someone you broke something........
Forgot to say got more yard work done on Saturday...trying to work out the sore muscles on the back of thighs due to balancing on the uneven rocks by the lake pulling weeds....they hurt every time I move! This is supposed to be dh' job...and he was even out there fishing..but did not think they were big enough...to me a weed is a weed no matter how big it is and needs to be gone! Lol
I was there and you are right! He was the greatest horse in history! Some of my friends are there to day to see if American Pharoah can do it. Wish I could have gone with them, but I hope we see history today with the winning of the Triple Crown! Will be watching it front row and center on my TV with my children and grand babies!
Here's a link to one of the greatest moments in history.....and I was watching it with my dad. He bet on it but not much as odds were not going to pay off with this being THE GREATEST HORSE IN HISTORY.....
Well...I worked most of the night thing to get the printer to work and on the phone with a warranty service...they will send me my Money back after I return the printer..mean time no printer..so need to find one asap.....I did get it working for a nit...long enough to print off some recipes and pictures...my printer is heavily used. Not sure what is wrong with it..cannot call HP cause they will charge you sine their warenty is expired but I got another when I bought it....will try it again later before deciding to send back.
Watered plants and took the pup out....cleaning day Thursday and all ready sore...swept the up and downstairs picking up grass sh and pup bring in...the lean was mowed today so that makes for a lot of grass to come on. I have no problem with bringing it in in but dh and pup bring lotss in!!!!!
Got a bad headache too....Turned the space heAter on chilly down here now that I am sitting still..bot on the heating pad too.....need a cover!
Oh...I am so sore..worked in the yard..flowers for several hours cutting thins back and digging weeds....they might get our trees and rose bushes planted this week....
Pets doing ok but kitty will not keep her color on!
Going to eat a big piece of pie......well not that big it is cut into 10 servings.....
My printer is on the blink..not printing black...I hear a squeaky noise when it starts to print..there was a paper jam but got it out..changed the ink cause it said low and the color prints but black is not so gotta find my warranty and go online and see what to do......always something..cannot print Miss E's pictures out!
Sue what kind of printer did you get and is it good for pics...Mine is an HP photo smart and I hate it...gives you a lot of problems with paper jams. And using two pieces at one time.
Oh Candice, the cat is so cute....poor thing and I see you have been busy and wow wish we got that rain, we need it. Your pie does look delicious now if only it was apples or peaches or strawberries etc. sorry not a fan of rhubarb pie.
OK now relax for the rest of the day....glad to hear Jasper is doing alright also.
Barb, think good work thoughts it's almost over.
Rose, deep breaths and have another sit down the with group and be firm and set out your rules again.....
Well I am off to check mail, eat breakfast, make a grocery list and get lots of off line work done.
Sue keep posting the pretty graphics.....I enjoy them!
Kitties doing better and so is the pup.....
She hates the collar but gotta keep her from scratching her ear.
Ran the sweeper up and down and did sheets....Cooler now but warmer later this week...we had 4 inches this last rain..everything is nice and green. Baked another rhubarb pie too...it is so good...I gotta limit mysel to One small piece...
Rose, I see you got to chill out on Friday and had a productive week taking care of house stuff too. I see even though Lori's last day was last week, you've had Bim and Violet quite a bit anyway LOL Good luck with the painting, Rose. What colors? Which rooms?
Thanks for reminding me I have to call Katie in the office about the bathrooms getting painted and we will see how they do and go from there. Will have them do the doors that we have wanted fix since they were painted with old paint.
Rose, this is why I rarely type in the board's box and do it in my mail program.
OK so are you painting inside the house or the house itself. I like blue houses, but I have seen dark gray ones that have looked very nice. How about painting a small back area and seeing how you like it and if not just paint over it?
We are doing alright Rose, thanks and I sent my email with all that has been happening this week, so I would go into all of it here and now.
Hoping all goes well for Larry....I feel for him as I have a bunch of doctor's appointments and tests coming up too. Have to say it....NOT a fan of DOCTORS.
Know Larry is in my prayers and I will do some extra ones just for him.
Love the pic of Autumn, she has such a wonderful smile....wishing her all the best...
Glad you are getting rain, Candice, yuck on the hot and humid. Hot here as we are going to 99 to day and Chuck just said at 4:02 currently 96 feels like 100.
Oh Candice my heart goes out to you....and to Jasper poor baby....I am sorry to say but I think it's time as he is doing all the things our baby did.
Oh no on the cat reopening the ears...oh Candice, I feel for you on the cats too as we had to put our babies down too, as they weren't well and were older when we moved and as much as we loved mom we did not want them in with her cats as she suggested, plus our vet was it was better for them if we put them down. Know that I am doing lots of extra prayers for you and the furbabies.
MMM dinner sounds yummy.
Well I am off to meds, breathing and nap time....tired...as another busy day....
Had a good Friday night my fish dinner with my corn, peppers and scallion added in was yummy, had a scoop of Speedy Tracks and got 14 chocolate race cars and got my workout in too. Watched part of the senior contingent....Matllock and Diagnosis Murder and finished the night with I Dream of Jeannie....
The champ won again on Jeopardy and Chris, from Let's Dish gave me some more yummy recipes....
House is already dusted, Lucy is washing the towels and off to check mail, eat, and clean some bathrooms, make up a frittata and work on pics.
Have a wonderful Saturday and weekend....will catch up tomorrow.....
Raining here and storms....we need the rain so the sprinkler does not run.....it was really hot and humid this week.
Jasper doing ok after we cut back his meds. His legs still give out on him and he cannot see or hear very well. Fell down the steps last night..bless his little heart. Poor thing cannot stop losing weight...getting so skinny.
The cat got he stiches out and had a color on to keep her from scratching it..well she got it off and reopened her ear...blood spattered on the walls and floor..looks like someone was salute red in there, lol...I put it back on her and doubled tied it and took out the houses she climbs in so she does not pull it off...she got stuck in one house. Hope the infection will clear up and heal to the vet said she have to be put down...she is 10 years. The older cats have not been eating the special food for the sick cat so have lost weight and are not moving around much....they are over 15 years....we could be minus A dog and 3 cats in the next few weeks. It has been very expensive to treat these animals.....we love our pets..but you do not want them suffering either.
Made supper...my own Zitailian dish and de haired the cats room then watched a movie...got some rhubarb to use up again..dh wants a pie again.

Having problems typing in the other box. Every word is appearing twice!
Anyway, glad to get the house painting started. I've decided on a color but am second guessing it. Our house is painted a pale gray but want it a darker gray this time. I chose a dark gray but maybe it's too dark. Anyway, that's going to be my biggest decision this coming week.
So how have you been, Sue. And how's Chuck?
Larry is going for a bunch of tests next week. He's a bit worried about the tests planned to check out his heart. He isn't having any problems but his open heart surgery was 17 years ago so he's worried about more blockage. Please add him to your prayer list.
I posted a picture of Autumn on graduation night but don't see it here. I'll post it again.

Hi ladies, I've been chilling out today but have spent part of the week catching up on things around the house. Sue, last Thursday was Lori's last day of school. That said, I've already kept Bim and Violet three times for her. Once for a doctor's appointment and once when she has to sign up for a class she is taking this summer. I also kept Violet last Saturday while they all went to Baton Rouge.
We (AdamAdam and the boys) are going to start painting the house next wee. I'm looking forward to getting that started
Oh Candice, I got tears in my eyes reading about you and Jasper and know you both are in my thoughts and prayers. Ha ha on the sneezing, Candice. I had to take an allergy pill last night and I thought of you today as I was in excruciating pain from twisting my back making the bed and then vacuumed anyway (which always kills me back...) well made it even worse today. Shower helped a bit but not for long. Took a faux Nuprin before we had lunch....so next time I tell you "you shouldn't have done that hurting like you did" you can remind me of this incident.
Well I thought Rose would stop by now that she is "childless" ....hope everything is alright Rose.
Ginger....soon they and paperwork will be all done....
Worked in the yard a bit and will go back out in a minute...the pup is always at my side..will miss him terribly when he is gone. Trying to enjoy the last few days with him...he seems so good at times, .....
Cried most of the night...just me and took him for a short walk yo his favorite spots to pee! Lol. He cannot walk far or fast anymore but still enjoys all the sniffs.....we had a break in the rain so took him out again...we much prefer the quiet cool time of the early am....will miss that time with him.
Did some more organizing in craft room too.....getting some more shelves....
