Quick hello/goodnight from me. I've been shy of my 7 hours sleep, and want to rectify that tonight!

Happy travels, Econlady and Kellie!!! Hope you both have wonderful trips!

And Econ, it probably is good to know your limits, such as letting the 3-D cookie animal go. But what I've seen here, you really are very artistic with those cookies!!!

I need to get out and do some walking - the sun is finally out at the moment!!!

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

I need to start responding to these posts regulary!

Today was weight lifting at o-dark thirty, then on to classwork. Managed to get in a lunch out with my hubby before coming home to do housework.

After dinner I will be taking the dog for a walk in the sunshine! I like bookending my day with exercise!

Be blessed, everyone!

Good Morning!

I did go to the church ladies supper lasts night. I enjoyed it but was glad when I got home. The chairs irritated my back. My back feels best in the mornings and the later in the day it gets the more it hurts. When I walked this morning I really focused on how I walk. I definitely put my left foot down harder than the right foot. Thats because of the right knee that needs to be replaced. That's probably why I'm having problems with the back.

Happy Monday! It's vacation day. DH and I just went over all the final packing. I'm going to do some yoga, hit the shower and then the airport. I'm feeling good this morning. No more coughing. I'm sucking zinc lozenges and taking advil cold and sinus every six hours just to be sure. Fingers crossed.

I need this time away!

Yesterday I just laid on the couch all day. My hips and lower back ached during the night from the inactivity.

Happy Anniversary Toni. I saw that yesterday and told myself to head to your Spark page and then ... ooo look squirrel..... it left my head. So many things to do on Spark! Here's to another great year!

Glad your party went well Maree!

Tootaloo my darlins!

Maree Iím so ur party went well, but 8 never doubted it.

I crashed last night. I was simply exhausted. 2 of the women took to cookie decorating with great ease and could quickly be much better than me, because they have natural artistic skills that I lack. Natural because they not only know how to balance and space a picture they are artists. For me itís a struggle for which my projector frequently saves the day. The other 2 struggled and will probably never use what I gave them. It happened to be mother/daughter.

I leave on my cruise on Friday. There is also a door decorating contest, but you can only attach with magnets. Iíve turned cookies into magnets and I need to finish decorating them today so i can get all the cookies packed. Tomorrow I turn towards non cookie packing. For my competition I abandoned my 3D animal and made something else. While it wonít win a prize, I wonít embarrass myself and people will say how pretty.

I have physical therapy at 8:20 and errands on the way home. I also need to talk to my neighbor about borrowing an Indian dress.

Have a great day everyone.

Morning all, yes Maree, we all knew your party would be a hit. It is good when the hostess can enjoy it too.
Thanks for the birthday wishes. Life has been pretty crazy lately so I think it will be a quiet day and I definitely donít need cake!

Maree, I knew your party would be a hit!

I remember Grandma telling me that people didn't entertain when she was young, it was all they could do to just feed their family. Even that took most hours of the day, what with having to chop wood for the stove and hauling water in from the pump. That was a mere 100 years ago. We are truly blessed with today's bounty.

Errands today, it will be hot but dry. We so need rain, but errands are easier without it.

Maree - I was sure you'd throw a lovely party. How nice you can work from home today. Enjoy tonight's bike ride.
Toni - ooo yes. pen to paper. yup. need to do that more, myself. and yes - the studio feels like home - or heaven - or homven or something paradisaical.
Phebess - I've often wished I could box up weather to share or save for another day. Like - snowflakes on a hot July afternoon - wouldn't that be fun?
Poindextra - you are one organized lady! No wonder you're so good at developing tech solutions
Econlady - I'm sure you have some happy students - glad you can kick back now. When is your cruise?
Bea - maybe you could organize a group at your church who shares the burden of taking care of Bernie - or of at least showing her some attention
Kellie - sending you good health juju - and wishes for a splendid vacation
Donna - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
Nell - oh I love that old book of mom's. It was called Betty Crocker's Guide to Easy Entertaining. spiral bound. so quaint. I have a couple of others - one from the 1920's that was ALSO extolling the virtues of casual entertaining. And who can forget the explosion caused by Martha Stewart's first book on entertaining - with the crooked wedding cake she baked for her brother. No matter how fussy she is - I always remember she was willing to show that off in print. LOL - DH, otoh, was aghast at the Fresh Normandy Butter she recommended for her little slices of french bread.

I picked out the yarn for a sweater for a new grandson - my step-son's new little boy. They'll be visiting in a few weeks and I'd like to have something for him. I have a whole yarn shop in my studio now - it's so inspiring.

Good Monday morning.

Phebess, I agree those dark rainy PNW mornings are motivation for heading to warmer climes.
Econ, hope you get to relax and rest up after your big push.
Donna, are you enjoying the season changes?
Bess, I hope you had a good day knocking around your new studio. Is it Ďhomeí yet?
So glad that party was wonderful, Maree.
Nell, any news on your momís move?
Doesnít seem like Bernie will be changing any time soon,

Thank you for the lovely anniversary wishes, my friends. Iím heading to my writing group today, a good reminder for me to set pen to paper more often. Iíve not been very good about that.

Toni

Good morning!
A quick check in, as I've been unloading the dishwasher and cleaning up after the party. It was a wonderful time.
I have a dermatologist appointment first thing this morning but need to comment on outside counsel's pleading, so will work now from home instead of going to crossfit class. DH and I will go for a long bicycle ride this evening.
So, off to start the day! Hope all have a great day!!
