Good evening ladies,

Today I made a Greek Pasta Salad from the new american heart association cookbook and used some fancy pasta I got at the country shop- it was bow tie pasta in black & white stripes. I couldn't resist trying it. The salad was good.

Our youngest son helped me with some gardening chores and he cooked up some lobster mushrooms he found yesterday.

Oldest son's cat is hovering around me because she is lonesome since he has been gone for a few days with his estranged wife in town. Estranged or strange.

Louise, I just hate dealing with insurance companies. For me that was the worst part of working in a doctor's office. I hope it goes smoothly for you contacting them. Can you tell DH you need him to walk or swim with you?

Ann, I'm glad you're enjoying the cool weather. Things did not grow well here this year so it's amazing to think of truckloads of tomatoes.

Glenna, I sliced up some fresh peaches to add to DH's and son's oatmeal this morning. I love peach or apple dumplings. The smell of canning and the sight of the jars lined up with their colorful contents is so satisfying.

This is a poem Alma Barkman had published in Country Woman:

Thanksgiving Wealth
Crowned in color, autumn comes.
Topaz kernals, amethyst plums,
Ruby jelly, emerald dills -
With brilliant gems, the pantry fills.
Gleaming jewels sealed in glass,
Treasures of the harvest past.

Hi Louise and all to follow. I don't envy you the insurance problems. Thank goodness my DH handles the insurance. I handle the money. I hope you get someone that will tell you that you are covered and they don't understand why your claims were rejected. I agree your DH should be getting some exercise and swimming would be wonderful.

We followed our GPS and did manage to get to DH niece's house along the Rogue River. There were jet boats full of customers getting rides going and coming back along the river all afternoon. We sat around the kitchen table and talked. With her DH traveling I hope our company was enjoyed by her. It was a wonderful break for us. We went out for Italian food tonight. A small restaurant in a shopping center. They had a senior and kids menu all in one and perfect size serving for us two ladies.

DH says are next stop will be Salen, Oregon.

What a change in temperature over night. DH said he saw a themp. reading early this morning on his walk that said 40 degrees. It did warm up later in the morning. It's 79 outside now at 7 p.m. I hope it doesn't get too cool as I didn't bring but a couple of outfits for cooler days.

Good Afternoon Everyone! This weekend was very lazy.
It was relaxing after the stressful day we had on Friday. Tomorrow I have to cancel my appointment I have on the 14th with the Cancer Treatment Center until we can get this insurance straightened out. Long time before they said my husband was not covered they said I was not on their records. Funny thing we have been paying weekly for both of us. I don't see them giving back our money! Then I have to call the Disability people and see where what my status of the claim is. Then we have to call the insurance company again and double check in what we have to do to get this whole mess straightened out. Everyone we talked to gave us different information.
This time I want to talk to a supervisor. So I have a feeling I better enjoy this relaxing day!!! If I can get DH or DD to go swimming with me later, I want to go swimming. The heart doctor said that DH should be swimming or walking or doing exercise. I cannot seem to get him to do it. He was for a while but now he is not. It would be better for his heart if he did. Well, everyone, please HAVE A GREAT REST OF LABOR DAY!
