Judy, I can't even imagine the stress this hacking/identity thefts are causing you and you DH.
CAZ, I am not sure what cream crackered is but it made me laugh.
Verna, your growing season is just behind ours and is probably shorter as well.
I have eight holly hocks out of the ground now. Don't know how long before stalks will be way high.
Susan, good luck on your image. Hope it is nothing serious.
Went bowling today, had a good time, and got back a few dollars.

Angry this morning as I learned someone had again claimed to be my hubby and changed his email password. When I got back into his account I saw that the only e-mail that appeared to have been opened was a credit card offer, so I'm assuming the hacker applied for a new cc in hubby's name. I have already put an alert on the three credit reporting agencies, so that should trigger a contact to us if there is any credit applied for. Makes me so mad! So spent the morning checking all of our bank accounts, credit cards, etc. to make sure everything is okay, and it seems to be. Rainy day today, but perhaps will clear so I can get a walk in later.

Hi Caz:

I was off yesterday to get a cat scan of my kidneys. My doctor is pretty sure that I have a kidney stone. I should get a call from my doctor either today or tomorrow.

Hi girlfriends
Lin Thanks for correcting me.
Susan I was as stiff as a board going to bed and totallly cream-crackered but okay when I got up yesterday- enough to finish up out there AND prep the garage wall for paint today.
Then I'll get the patio cleaned and some patio cleaner put down, no point doing it the other way around as I've got to walk over it. Glad you had a good visit, best wishes for your mum's special day.
Judy glad you feel a little better., your hubby will be kept busy for sure.
Verna emoticon do we get to see any pictures of your labours?? emoticon
HI Cat, Patti
We’ve got another bank holiday this weekend and the forecast is for hot weather so our beach will no doubt be invaded. They’re re-styling the kids paddling pool to become a splash-pool and it’s a right old mess down there at the moment-rubble not taken away, wire safety guards and port-a- loo etc, not the image you want with paying visitors coming.

Garden is in and I saw a few peas peeping their heads above soil. Transplanted 4 of my tomato plants today into the garden. The biggest ones. I will go into town to the gym again tomorrow and pick up a tiny tim to put by the firepit so we can have hor d'orves before our meals all summer long. On the days I cook outside at least. Got the geraniums moved from house to the great outdoors today too. We are very dry here so the sprinkler has been sprinkling steadily it seems. I bought another dozen bedding plants today, African Daisies, so I need to get off here and put them into the ground close to the fire pit so I can admire them all summer to as I dart back and forth!! Love gardening and how nice things look but let me just say it is a lot of work. I.m the opposite of you Susan, I'd rather garden than run. Never did like running and now I just run out of air too quickly plus I find it hard on my knees.

Seems like everyone is busy outdoors either running, gardening or some other form of work. How many of us stop and smell the flowers? I actually have a sign that says exactly that hanging in a tree close to the fire pit but it's not often I stop long to smell anything. This year I have put my lemon scented geranium right beside the back door which is our entrance/exit. It smells gorgeous.

Well, I'm outa here folks. Have a lovely evening and great tomorrow.

Howdy gals.
Good to have you pop in, Lin.
It's hard enough to keep up with US holidays much less CA and UK. I know when the CA Thanksgiving is and that's it.
I have been doing just the minimum in gardening since all the planting weeks ago. Water and minor weeds is it.
Not much going on here.

Susan, I can relate about the gardening. I do love the beautiful colors and flowers, but I don't find the work that goes with them either fun or therapeutic as many people do. I mostly plant in pots (which need no weeding!) and place them around the front of the house. Got a tree cut down in the far back yard yesterday so hubby is busy cleaning it up. We wanted the wood to burn in the fire pit, so he has something to keep him busy! Still quite weak and lethargic but may be a bit improved today -- would love to have it gone by the weekend so I can enjoy the holiday!

Good Morning ladies,

wet and cool here today so I am going down to visit my mother who turns 85 on Thursday. My sister, and her 2 girls and me and my oldest daughter are taking my mom out for dinner and to the casino afterwards on her birthday. She likes to go every year on her birthday so hope she is lucky playing the slots.

CAZ, you must have a pretty stiff back or sore legs this morning after 7 hours in the garden yesterday. If not, more power to you girl. I have yet to put anything in the garden except a pot of lavender that I purchased. Although the weekend was nice and warm I prefer to wait another weekend when the garden centers are less filled with mass people getting their supplies. I want to just plant perennials so eventually the garden will be filled with ever lasting flowers that come up every year. I am not a very good gardener and wish my dad was still alive to help me make my garden as beautiful as the artistic ones he used to create.

Truth is I just like to look at gardens that are beautiful but not a fan of all the maintenance that goes along with having them. I don't mind pulling up weeds from time to time but all the other stuff you have to do to make the soil rich and what not is not on my list of favorite things to do. I guess I would rather be out hiking and power walking LOL. But I am good at other things such as knitting and cooking great healthy meals.

I do admire the work of those who can make and keep lovely gardens and give you kudos for making the world and the neighborhood a more pretty place to live.

Well, I better move along so I can get ready to see my mother. I wish each and everyone of you a fantastic day.

P.S. yesterday was Victoria Day in celebration of Queen Victoria from our past of reigning monarchs. Canada is July 1st

Hi there girls
Judy take it easy hun, I too watch the biopic, excellent likenesses.
Susan forgot it was Canada day yesterday, as we have relatives over there I have a reminder on my Outlook calendar- missed it LOL. Glad you had such a good day

Hi Patti, Cat and Verna if she pops in for a chat

Got over 7 hours gardening done yesterday and a couple more hours today should see it done. Then the Garage walls need a clean and coat of paint and I'll finish up with pressure washing the patio........doubt if it'll all get done today, but I'll go for it!!

Hello Ladies,

with this being a holiday day in Canada everyone and his brother were out walking, cycling, taking their dogs along. I decided this morning that I was not going to let my fibromyalgia flare up consume me and I went out for a power walk. I ended up doing an 8 mile walk at a 16 min mile pace over all. This afternoon I decided to go out again and this time I took my baby great granddaughter Hailie with me for a 3 mile power walk at just a 17 min mile pace. She slept most of the way after the first half mile.

Once after dinner was through I had another burst of energy so decided to take one of my Shih Tzsus with me (Tobi) and went 2 miles at a 17 min mile pace.

I would say all in all this has been my best walking day of the year.
I still feel energized which is good because lately I have only felt tired after my walks (even the 3 mile walks) I am determined to get my distance walking back however the running will take me much longer if ever. My hips have deteriorated a great deal over the past few years and I am trying to get the bone built back up with nutrition and supplements. BUT....there is no shame in power walking so if that's all I can do for the rest of my time, then so be it. I can still walk pretty fast and I am pleased with my progress.

Tomorrow is calling for rain and then the rest of the week should be dry and sunny. I'm looking forward to some more great walking days like today.

Hope you have all had a great Monday.

Hi all.
Get better, Judy.
Susan, rabbits are no fun in neighborhoods. They are very destructive to landscaping and gardens and if they get in the crawl space they are like mice and tear out insulation for bedding.
Good luck.
Mayie, enjoy the garden slience before school is out and the kids populate it!

Yesterday after I played for church we went to a landscape place and got some brick things and river rock to place around the outdoor fire ring. Hubby got it done yesterday and it looks nice -- looking forward to some bonfires and s'mores this summer! I also watched the wedding several times, as well as a Lifetime movie about their meeting and relationship. I do think Harry is quite smitten!!! Although my cough is better, I just feel really zapped today. I had to get up early and take my Jeep in for servicing, but I think this afternoon I am going to just bundle under a blanket, watch tv and nap.

Hi girls
Cat our preachers are so staid and stuffy he was a breath of fresh air, just what the wedding needed....although I could see some bemused royals. I find it sad that so many brides today will want to "copy" the dress instead of being individual. But it happened with Diana too, as soon as she was seen in a dress it was copied and bought by so many "wanna-be's".
Mayie glad you're finally feeling better and taking a break- hope all goes well Wednesday.
Susan hope the bunnies can be saved.

Lovely weather, debating whether to enjoy it or work in the garden and get the garage wall repainted, it's looking weather-worn.

Hi Ladies, its been a busy weekend for me so far so I haven't had much time to post. Not much happening either. Hubby finished mending the fence that went down in the storm a before we left for vacation back in February.

We have discovered a nest of baby bunnies in our large shed after our little chihuahua came carrying one in his mouth. He must have found the nest when hubby had the shed open and taken one out. Unfortunately it was dead. We will be calling wildlife assistance tomorrow to find out what we can do as the babies are just staring to open their eyes. In another 2 weeks they will be coming out of the nest and then I'm afraid for them with our 4 dogs. The mother will want to have her next litter in the same place all summer long so we need some advice how to remove the nesting area once the bunnies are able to be on their own in a few weeks,
Apparently the mother only returns at dusk and dawn and nurses the babies once a day on a very rich milk. Once they are weaned they are on their own to survive.

They are so adorable but I am afraid for their future.
I hate to see anything happen to them. If possible we cam move them over to an area of the park where I know there are many rabbits living.

Well I better move along but wanted too say hello and I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

The bike adventure last Wednesday left me with a lot of swelling and stiffness and pain. Still glad I made the effort in spite of all the negatives. Have an appointment scheduled for Wednesday mornings and the bike is the only way I have of getting there and back in time for school jobs. Symptoms have settled down this weekend and I am taking it easy. I need a break from all the pushing. Wandered into the back of the block where I found a picnic table and spent a bit of time in the sun reading my book. I have lived here for 24 years and in all that time I have always kept busy getting away from here. Today was rather peaceful. The weather is beautiful. The birds are chirping. And if I feel tired or bored I don't have far to go in order to get home. I consider this a good day.

Hope you are having a good one too.

Hi all.
I didn't think I would be interested in the wedding but I recorded it since Chris expressed an interest. Well, I was stuck watching the whole thing for some three or so hours, I couldn't take my eyes off of all of it.
I wondered how the Brits would take the US preacher and singers as it seemed so out of character. Glad to know at least one liked it.
Harry and Meagan kept it all nice and loose, while respectful, rather than stiff and starchy.
This will certainly be fodder for a bunch more Hallmark princess weddings!

Wedding had me in tears and surprisingly Pete was close to shedding a tear or two too. That American preacher was just amazing, that's what the Royals need, a kick in the butt to soften that stiff upper lip (if you'll excuse the mixed metaphors LOL). Loved Stand By Me too, so Harry. Oh, I could watch it all over again!!
I have a feel sales of E type Jaguars will go through the roof now that Harry's adopted one.

I shall be on the blower (phone) to Liz (Her Majesty) though to ask where our invites got to emoticon

Morning all. Thought I should check in early today as I need to get moving.
I did go to the gym this morning and now I need to hit the shower and get ready for Saturday and all it has yet to bring.

Anne, I neglected yesterday to comment on your 40th anniversary. Congrats!
The pictures of your wedding day are so sweet. I wish you another 40.

Today Chris and I took off for another town and a couple shops that aren't in our area. We just wanted to get out and about.

Patti, how disappointing that you had to reschedule your scan. Anne, congrats on your anniversary. Verna, enjoy the foals! I felt quite good yesterday but perhaps overdid things, as today I'm feeling worse again. Maybe I'll just take it easy today ... will see how I feel as the day progresses.

Patti how did your appt go? Good news I hope.
Susan good to hear you're sleeping better. Must be a feng shui thing happening for you.
Judy glad you're feeling brighter.
Verna enjoy your foals.
Anne emoticon 40 years WOW!
Cat hope a good night sleep has helped.

Got a load of gardening done in the rear enclosed section yesterday, looking shipshape and colourful,................but boy it could use a drink, bone dry. If it doesn't rain today, I'll be out there with the sprinkler.
Looking forward to the "wedding of the year" tomorrow.....will any of you be watching it?

Have a great weekend everyone emoticon

Hi all.
I did not go to the gym today. One eye swollen and running with a headache. Just allergies, I'm sure, but not nice.
A friend came by for a visit for awhile, which cheered me up.
Got in a good walk. It was overcast this morning but the sun broke through and it's gorgeous now.
Have a good evening all.

Hi ladies I am still around but less active on the site, but keeping active and healthy. Good to catch up on your posts and sending positive vibes to you all. Celebrating our Ruby wedding anniversary today, 40 years have flown by not all perfect but we hung on in there and stronger for it. Just a quiet posh lunch and long walk in a county park. Perfect. Take care all

Sorry to hear some are under the weather, get well soon.

Caz thank you for checking on me --so kind and caring of you to do that.

Mayie I'm impressed that you got back on a bike. Good for you. Whether you thought of it or not, that was a huge step for you mentally and physically. Proud of you.

Well, I never got the garden planting completed yesterday, had a few interruptions which of course put me behind and going out to finish after dinner was just not going to happen!! I thought I'd finish today but that's unlikely as DH has a Dr. appt and this afternoon the foals and their mammas are coming home. It will be so exciting to see them again. Foals are so cute and fun to watch, whether they are sleeping, eating or playing. So if you don't see me on here as often just know I am too busy hanging over the fence watching the foals, or weeding, or watering or mowing lawns, or or or or.

Have a great day all.

Mayie, you are doing well and I agree you have come a long way! I'm feeling a bit today, but d get in any exercise yesterday. Last night before bed I sipped on my little green tea concoction and I felt much better this morning. I swear by that stuff! (green tea, honey, lemon, ginger & cayenne pepper) Will get a walk in today, even though it might be a little shorter than normal. I'm encouraged by a little bit of weight loss this morning!

Good morning Ladies,

Since I changed my bedroom around to the way it was before the renovations last month, I have had 3 full night's sleep in a row. I sure hope it continues because I feel so much more energetic.

Today is just glorious outside with no clouds, no wind and it is actually hot (which I love). Tomorrow and Sunday they are calling for rain so I will enjoy this day to it's fullest and be outside.

Mayie, I know you still have a long way to go but you have already come a long way. Those tasks that you used to enjoy, you will be able to enjoy again once your leg is healed completely. I do know how you feel because I am still very limited to what I can do because of my shoulder injury that I am still doing physio therapy with. Hoping for a cortisone shot before I leave for vacation so I dont have to be in pain.

Sending best wishes out to all of you wonderful ladies and hope the day is just as great for you as it will be for me. emoticon

Another busy day, getting used to working again. Missing the joy I used to experience in these jobs . . . I am totally focused on putting one foot in front of the other and remaining upright. Made vegetarian lasagna with a group of women at the church; that will be my supper tonight. Late afternoon PT appointment where the therapist was able to reduce some of the increased swelling I've been having. Actually got on my bike and attempted to ride this morning. It's definitely not like it used to be but there was a time when I doubted I'd ever be able to ride again. All in all I consider this a good day!

Hi gals

Been very busy with yard and garden work. Been lovely and warm so not rushing to and from while out that's for sure. Glitter is racing on Friday evening so we will go up to see her. I believe I posted that I was starting a Health and Wellness System. Today is Day 10, the first 8 were cleanse days and as of yesterday morning I lost 10.5 inches and 12 lbs. with plenty of product to last until the end of the month and further. I've experienced some other health benefits both inside and out and certainly have more energy.

Must get moving, want to get the rest of the garden in today.

Have a happy healthy day everyone.

Slept in as I was not feeling real well waking up several times with a sore throat and feeling feverish. I did get up about 8:30 and am moving, albeit a little slowly. Going to be hot today (yay!) so better get my walk in right after lunch. Hubby finally got his boat in the water and is enjoying a beautiful morning on the lake! I plan to soak up some Vit D this afternoon and the warmth of the sunshine should loosen up my sinuses a bit.

Hi Girls

Where's Verna?
Judy slow weight loss is best, it stays off then. Good luck.
Patti glad you're back with power. That rarely happens here, but when it does my first thought is "will the food in the freezer spoil", so far it's never been off long enough to make a difference,
Susan glad you caught up on your lost sleep.Great walk!

Hi Ladies,

it was a rain storm last night and this morning but I apparently slept through it. I had only slept 4 hours the night before and was in a deep sleep when apparently there was one huge thunder crash about 7:30 am.

I was so happy this afternoon when the sun came out later on. I was able to get out for a 6 mile power walk after dinner and Now I am tired. I need to stretch more I think. I am definitely feeling my age these days. AS much as I love power walking, I have to admit it takes a lot more out of me to keep the pace and go the distance. I sure hope with practice I get faster and can go farther but if I can't I will just settle for what my body can do and be happy that I am still very active.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week. My daughter and I are on a countdown to vacation time.

Got in a good walk yesterday, as well as over an hour of pickleball. The weight will come off slowly, but at least I made progress. The team results of our community Wellness Challenge halfway weigh-in were posted yesterday, and my team is in 9th place out of 22 teams, so we did well and I think are motivated to keep it up!

Mayie you're welcome. I was just concerned for you.

Hi Judy, Verna

Glad you all had good Mother's Day celebrations, we had our special day back in March.

Lousy weather here again today, nuff said . Will find something to do indoors.

Hello there. Very tired today after working at both my little jobs and PT. After a full day I deserve an evening of rest. Heading out to the balcony to read in the sun.

JUDY: You have a lovely family. Your daughter looks so much like you. I know it's easy to say but I wouldn't worry about the extra pounds. I managed to jump from 148 to 152.4 this morning. I have a lot of weight to make disappear but I know I ate out of the ordinary with two Mother's Day celebrations. It didn't seem like I over indulged at the time but I rarely have a feast of Chinese food and don't usually eat burgers and fries. 4.4 pounds still seems like a lot.

Hello to VERNA, ANNE, CAZ, PATTI, SUSAN, CAT and anyone else I have missed. Hope you all enjoy your evening.

Hi all. Belated Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.
Judy, you have a lovely daughter and granddaughters. That is a good pic of you with them.
Mayie, glad to hear from you. Good to hear you are still healing and doing well.
Hi Patti, CAZ, Verna, Anne, etc..........
Never got to walk last evening. I took the dogs for a car ride with the windows down and that seemed to make them happy. Not good that I didn't walk, but....
Right after returning from the gym this morning I hooked the dogs up for their walk. Figured I get that out of the way before the heat.

The Challenge went by the wayside over the weekend in Fargo and I came home with 2 1/2 pounds more than I left with. My work is cut out for me! Was great spending time with daughter's family and celebrating the girls' birthdays, as well as Mother's Day.

Hello ladies. As usual, you are all quite busy . . . and appear to be doing well.

NEW CAZ: Thanks so much for the wee note. I really appreciate it. It's so easy, when days pass quickly, to find that weeks have gone by and before one knows it, they've slipped away.
Not much has changed here. Continuing to work hard at Physio. Going three times a week. My time on the treadmill is when I walk pretty close to normal. Not sure why I have such difficulty transferring that to walking on the ground.

Have returned to work at the school, at least the lunch time job. My responsibilities are modified and walking is quite slow but it is good for me to push myself in the outside world as much as I can. Tomorrow I will return to my half hour morning bus duty. I don't feel ready but the person who has been replacing me the past 7 months really hates the job and complains a lot, so this I will try. It seems ridiculous in a way, twenty minutes to walk there and twenty minutes back, to work for 30 minutes. Yes, it would be easier to simply sleep in and not bother, but I want my life to be as normal as I can make it. School finishes in 6 weeks . . . that's not such a long time.

Weather has warmed up here in Winnipeg although we have lots of windy days. No gardening yet but the dandelions are starting to pop up. With only 120 growing days and the possibility of snow in May, it's been advised that we hold off planting until June 2. Not sure if I'll be able to dig the garden this year. May 24 is expected to be our garden prep evening at the church. Perhaps there will be others who are willing to help.

Still not able to walk very far and not on the bike yet but I am hopeful that day will come.

Good to see that you are all enjoying life.

What a glorious day it has been. Sunshine and warm temps. We spent most of the day outside and all of our children cam to visit. I got so many lovely hanging baskets off flowers and it makes the yard look so pretty.

I went for a 1.5 mile power walk this afternoon before dinner and went out after dinner for a 4 mile power walk. My timing is getting faster and I beat my previous 16 min mile time by doing the 4 miles at a 15 .44 min mile pace. At this rate, I can see me being ready for the October half marathon or even a 10 or 15k race. Either way I am pleased with my progress. Not pleased that my daughter brought me a small tin of chocolate coated caramels and my son brought me a slice of cheese cake. I ate some of the cheese cake and tossed the rest. YES! That was a milestone for me to toss food out instead of eating it because it is there. I did that the other day at the Casino as well so I really have learned to stop when I have to and not belong to the clean plate club just because my parents taught me that.

I am tired now and the past few nights I have been getting at least 7 hours sleep as opposed to the insomnia hours of 3-4. Hoping this means the insomnia has passed for the next while at least.

CAT those temps are truly to high for man nor pets to walk in. Hope it has cooled down enough for you to go out after dinner.

Patti I put all my winter clothes away 2 days ago. Hope that I won't need to get anything back out until November.

Verna I too am waiting to plant until after the long weekend. WE could still get a few cold nights. I bought some lavender the other day and I will have to get some soil for the garden before planting it. I also have to dig and turn my gardens over and make sure there are no weeds sprouting.

Well, I am now going to do a bit of stretching before I settle down for a relaxing evening. Hope everyone has a great evening.

Didn't get out for my walk early this morning and now it is 89 degrees. I refuse to put the dogs on the asphalt as that temperature is a good 20-30 degrees higher than the air temp. Their little paw pads are not built for that kind of abuse, and abuse it would be.
So, waiting for the temp to go down after dinner sometime before I head out.
I did some garden watering and weed pulling and went shopping for just a few groceries.
Hope everyone is well and happy.

Hi all.
Hit the gym this morning a little later than usual as hubbie slept in.
We got the folding lawn chairs yesterday and for a good price. I even got a little umbrella to attach to mine.
We went to the parade today. It was to end just a mile down the street from us so we parked in the shopping lot at the end of the street, staked out our spot along with lots of other people, nearly 2 hours in advance. Then just as the start of the parade was coming upon us we were told it would end in the shopping parking lot ahead of where we were all set up!!@!! So, we moved to the very end as they turned to come in the lot. We got to see everything - all 123 entries - and had a good time.

Hi folks

Quiet here this morning, guess everyone is busy doing what they do!!

Susan, we eat at one of the Casinos in Calgary sometimes and the food is good, can't say it's cheap though but where is food in a restaurant cheap anyway!! Groceries are pricey so restaurants pass that cost onto us and of course the minimum wage went up too so it all adds up. Oh well, I'm just happy to wake up every morning with no pains and able to do all the things that need to be done around here even if I can't do in one day what I used to. I bought my bedding plants but because Alberta spring weather is so unreliable I think I'll wait until after the long weekend before I plant. Garden needs to be worked as well and of course planted!! And so it begins . . . .

Caz, I'm sure you're buzzing around and burning up the electricity today. Don't over do it!!

Judy I hope you are having a wonderful weekend at the birthday party. I'm so impressed with you and your DH for doing so well on the Challenge. Keep up the good work.

Cat did you find your lawn chairs that don't take up too much space? With a smaller home you have less housework even if there is less storage space.

Hope you are ok Mayie, haven't heard from you for a bit. Hi Patti, Anne and everyone else reading. Have a great day all.

Greetings all.
We had to go find/buy some folding chairs for the summer concerts and the festival parade Sunday. When we moved we gave away ours. Don't regret the gifting but regret not having a place here to store things like that. These are smaller so hopefully we'll find a spot for them.
Don't know how people live in tiny houses.
$25 for casino buffet sounds high. Remember when casino food was good and also cheap?
The weather is so nice here and will be through the weekend.
It is our 123rd Irrigation Festival final weekend. It is the longest running festival in WA. We have never been in the 18 yrs we've been here but plan on going to the parade this year.
Have a good weekend, all.

Good afternoon Ladies,

I took hubby to the Casino for lunch a lunch buffet which was $25.,00 each. I am so glad the food was lousy because I pushed every thing to the side that had no taste at all which in the past I would have ate out of guilt to not waste it.
I won't eat there again. I will say the dessert was to die for. Had a piece of what I would call chocolate fudge cake with some ice cream.
I don't plan on having dinner today but if I get hungry I will have an apple or some carrots.

Going to get out and power walk before the rain comes . It is much cooler today but that's fine by me. We had some sun in the early part of today and in a few days the summer like temps and sunshine will be back again.

Judy have fun with your granddaughters at their birthday party.

Wishing all the team a great weekend. emoticon

Fridays are great even when you're retired! Will be heading to Fargo in the morning - daughter is having birthday parties for my granddaughters. This is when it really helps to have hubby on board with the wellness challenge, as his choice of restaurants is now where we can make healthy choices! Of course there will be ice cream and cake........ I've had a good week with consistent exercise and eating healthy and within my calorie range. Have a great weekend and please send some warm sunshine to MN and ND!

Good evening ladies,

had an uneventful day today. Very quiet and laid back. I did get out power walking after dinner but only went for 2 miles because I only slept 4 hours last night. I can't seem to fall asleep until it is almost 5:00 am and sometimes later. Going to make an appointment to talk to my doctor about this insomnia as it has gotten out of hand. This is the longest bout I have had lasting well over a month now.

Our weather has turned quite cool and has been cloudy most of the day. Tomorrow says sunshine but will feel more like early spring than the summer like weather we have had for a few days.

Hubby's 66th birthday is tomorrow so I am planning to take him out. Maybe go to the Casino to play the slot machines for an hour then have lunch at their buffet. Food there is good and hubby enjoys having the choices. For me, I am planning on sticking to a modest meal. I don't want to sabotage myself since I am just gaining momentum and getting back on track.

Hope everyone has had a great day and looking forward another great one tomorrow. Good night ladies. emoticon

Only gone three days, and the laundry!!!!!!!!
There's no laying on the beaches in WA as they are all too cold. Just wanted to get away and go somewhere we used to have a place and haven't been back in about 10 years. Good memories relived.
Glad to see everyone is up and about and doing well.

Well, I ended up getting each of the new mothers (daughter and dil) a gerbera daisy plant in very cute watering cans. Could not find orchids other than fresh flowers and someone who has a lot of orchids told me they're very difficult to get to bloom again. Today I plan to get some flowers planted outdoors in my pots. Also need to get my walk in early as hubby and I are going to the high school baseball game when he gets home from work. Now that I'm back to walking and playing pickleball, my feet/plantar fasciitis are bothering again. I may need to work in some bicycling to get them a break. Verna that plan you are losing sounds interesting. What is the name of it?

Hi Ladies,

had a another full day today which started off going down to my moms. Took Benji for 2 walks while there and my youngest daughter and her daughter (my GD) met us there. My daughter permed and cut my moms hair as she is a licenced stylist and insists that she do it now because she can get me the professional products. This also gives her a chance to get down and visit my mom. So, in her kitchen today we had 4 generations of women.

After coming home I decided it my time to go power walking as this was a beautiful day with summer temps in the high 70's.I went 6 miles and even managed to do a bit of running and my hip didn't bother me at all. My endurance for running on the other hand is very short but my endurance and stamina for power walking is back. I loved getting 6 miles in and felt that I could have gone even farther but I am doing this right and taking it by slowly increasing my distance. so I don't burn out or injure myself.

Dinner consisted of lots of raw veggies and some peanut butter on a rice cake for my fat and protein and a 2 ounce slice of pepperoni pizza for some protein and carbs. I have drank over 12 cups of water but I should have take 2 bottles of water with me as the one bottle only contained 2 cups and I was dehydrated by the time I got home. I don't want to do that because it make my kidney have to work all the harder.

I was so happy to my stats after my labs yesterday as I brought my kidney numbers up so I am above the low normal now for my GFR (the rate at which kidneys filter out toxins) The low normal is 60 and I was up to 66 which after the kidney removal it went down to between 53 and 57. When i had both kidneys my number was 96. By drinking more water I have remedied being below normal and hope to have the number up even more on my next lab.

It's been a great day for me and hope all you lovely ladies have had a great day as well. I am so happy that spring has well sprung here and summer is on it's way. emoticon

Here is another picture of my ray of sunshine

Good thing you're retired Judy, now you have the time to take Sunshine to the groomer and not have to rush around!! That's a lovely gift to give your DD and DIL for Mother's Day, flowers/plants are always welcomed by me, especially plants because they last much much longer.

Cat which beach are you laying on? AND I totally agree the SP app is no good. I can't seem to find my groups on it. I wish they would get that fixed so I can keep in contact on my phone rather than having to take my laptop along.

Susan, your day sounds like a wonderful one with your "girls". I'm not surprised that Haillie loves it outdoors. She is stepping right into GGM shoes. She will likely be a runner and/or power walker too.

Caz, thanks for asking about the kit. There is no fasting, the first 8 days are a cleanse with only protein and green veggies to eat for the first 2 days plus the various products. Today and every second day thereafter calls for protein/green veggies/nuts/grains. Sounds like a lot of food to me!! This is day 3 for me and I've lost just under 9 lbs and definitely have more energy and I believe I am in a better mood --- that could be because of the loss of poundage!! At any rate, I'm liking the product and its results. AND yes, I am totally aware that the poundage is water loss. I will be anxious to measure myself after the first week. I can see that my belly has gone down already now for my rear end and thighs LOL

Well, better get a move on, have a nice day everyone.

We got some rain last night and perfect timing since hubby had applied weed & feed on Sunday afternoon. Took Sunshine to the groomer this morning and have to pick her up after lunch. It's a 1-hour round trip, so that takes 2 hours out of my day, but one of the drawbacks of small-town living. We really need a groomer closer! Both my daughter and daughter-in-law will be having their first Mother's Day this weekend, and we will be in Fargo to help celebrate. I think I'll get them each some type of plant or flower. Went to the greenhouse yesterday and got my plants. Not sure I'm finished yet. I am going to try a couple of patio tomato plants this year and see how it goes. Want to get a walk in before lunch, so best keep moving!

Hi Ladies,

spent the day with my oldest daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter today. My daughter and I both went for lab work and my daughter for xrays today so we will be in good health when we leave for vacation next month.
Afterwards we enjoyed sitting on the back deck enjoying the sun, Hailie loves being outside and she conked out for a long afternoon nap as soon as eh was put in her crib.

After dinner I got out for a power walked and I kicked it up a notch doing 4.5 miles at a 15.5 minute pace. This was a milestone for me since getting back to power walking. I surprised myself as I have been really feeling my age this year..

Hope everyone is enjoying this great summer like weather as well.

Caz, hubby isn't quite retired yet, but he is using vacation days next week and the following week, then that next Monday is Memorial Day Holiday, so he will work the last 3 days of the month after that and retire at the end of the month. He is planning on getting more exercise when he retires. Was proud of my team as we weighed in with a total of 43 pounds lost. I think it motivated us all to keep it up until the end of the challenge on June 15th. The measurement though is not pounds lost, but percentage of weight lost, and they will be announcing that on the page as teams weigh in throughout the week. Best get moving. Want to get to the nursery today and get my flowers.

Judy that's great. Good to see your hubby is getting leaner too, especially as he's retired now, need to keep active.
Susan I'm sure you'll organize a great shower, August will come around fast.
Verna your KIt?? Are you fasting?

HI to everyone else......off to the beach again today to make the most of the record breaking temperatures for this bank holiday.

Hi ladies

Judy, good for you with the 4 lb loss and isn't it wonderful that DH is on board with you. Keep it going.

Susan you are one energetic gal that's for sure. Your life is very exciting with those babies arriving and both girls. How wonderful for you and Brian. I like that your DIL and son have included Ryan's name in their daughter's name. The reveal party sounds like it was a blast. Was your mom able to attend? I bet she's excited too.

Yes, Glitter does earn money for coming in second and DH won a nice chunk on his bet as well. She was the longest shot on the board but he had faith in her and as you said Susan, he had a feeling too. I'm not a bettor but I do scream and holler as they come to the finish line and yup sometimes tear up too!!!

I started my "Kit" today and all has gone well so far!!! The first 8 days are the cleanse part which suggested that pictures be taken and that we weigh. I had DH take the pics and we had a good laugh!! I need a miracle not just a cleanse!! I really should have started as soon as I got the kit because the last 2 weeks have been brutal for eating carbs. Must have been a psychological thing because I sure ate my share of sweets and carbs and I'm sure every pound I gained is now on my stomach. Sugar always does that to me!!

Well, must run have a few things I want to do before it gets dark out. Have a lovely evening all.

Good afternoon Ladies,

was off and running earlier today with errands. trying to get the baby shower organized now. I have a hall booked for August 16th so it is all getting very exciting.

Lots of sun today but much cooler. Great for a power walk after dinner.
Have a good day everyone.

What a fun and exciting race Glitter put on for you! A little envious of those going to the beach! And also a fun and exciting Reveal party! Didn't sleep well last night so I didn't wake up until almost 9 this morning. I don't like getting up that late, and need to keep moving now. Tonight is the halfway weigh-in for the Wellness Challenge. No one on my team has said anything about whether they've lost any pounds, so am wondering how the weigh-in will go. I have lost a little over 4 and hubby has lost a little over 10. It's a beautiful day and the rest of the week is supposed to be rainy, so must get busy so I get a good walk in today!

Hi Ladies,

our reveal party turned out so great. It was my granddaughter Tori who hostessed it and she did such a great job on the reveal.Here is the box my granddaughter made in which the balloons of pink color and a couple of themed ones were placed.



I wish I could post the video because my DIL was so happy when she found out it was a girl and my son was just as elated. My DIL started jumping up and down and crying tears of happiness and it was so heartwarming. So we are having another girl and we are all delighted.
They announced her name as well which is Avery Ryan Grace Blanchard.We are so honored that they named her after our late son Ryan which they said right from the start that they would use his name as the middle name whether it be a girl or boy.
The name Ryan is unisex and it sounds nice together. I love the name Avery and Grace.

Now the downside of the party is that I over indulged in all the chips and cup cakes that were there to snack on. I had some veggies as well but the damage has been done.
Tomorrow I am back to the old grind of eating healthy and hiding away the salty snacks that are my poison.

My insomnia has become so insane that I am living on 3 hours tops of sleep per night. Tonight I will take a prescribed sleeping pill because if I don't get sleep I am going to crash and burn. Can't have that happening when I have been doing so well otherwise.

Verna, congrats on Glitters second in and almost win. It must be so exciting to watch your own horse run in races. Hubby and i love going to the track in the summer time and we only make small bets but I just love to watch the horses race. I only bet on long shots but hubby goes over all the stats before choosing one to come in. All of the horses are so beautiful it's hard to pick one but sometimes I just get a strong feeling and have been lucky. On a 2 dollar bet I have never become a millionaire but I have made a profit LOL.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend. See you all tomorrow.

Hi all.
Took the dogs to the sitter today and stopped at a Mustang (car) show on the way home.
Tomorrow we are taking off to the beach for a few days since we haven't been in a few years.
Did Glitter win you any $$ coming in second? Hope so.
Susan, have fun. Hope the little doggie is better.
Patti, CAZ, Mayie, Anne, Judy - I say HI.

I can't believe it!!!! I haven't posted for the last 3 days. My my how time does fly and speaking of which I have to fly out of here. LOL We were in Edmonton yesterday and although Glitter had a bad start she did come in second. I tell everyone she just went close to the folks in the grandstand and told everyone "Keep your eyes open for me on the way back" She was at least 5 lengths behind the pack going by the grandstand at the beginning and came back with a vengeance ending second and had she had a few more yards she would have won handily. It was one h3ll of a race to watch.

Lots to do today. Tomorrow is a new day and I hope to get time to go to the gym as well as get back on track with the eating. Time to get started on the "kit" and maybe life will slow down long enough for me to get my feet under me again.

Have a great day all.

Susan, enjoy the party! I am kind of old school when it comes to knowing the gender -- I wanted to be surprised so for a few months I wouldn't let them tell me, but then I figured someone was going to slip eventually so I wanted it to come from the kids instead of someone else. I'm enjoying having my little grandson with me this weekend.

Hi gals
Susan how exciting. Love this new idea of the great reveal. Glad the pet pooch is alright now, must have been scary.
Cat glad it's now nice enough to ride your bike.

CAT, the bike riding sounds great. I love cycling but haven't done it in a couple of years since I started running. Maybe it's a good time for me to return to cycling since my hips are too bad to run. I will NEVER stop power walking however until I can no longer walk and pray that never happens.

I had to take an emergency drive to my moms today as her little dog had continuously been vomiting since I brought him home yesterday after his dental surgery. The vet gave him a shot of an anti nauseate as well as a med for pain and so far he is doing better.

I had to scramble to get the housework dome once back home and hubby was a dear and took me out for dinner. Now I have the food prep to do yet but will take some time to rest. I am so tired after averaging just 4 hours a night sleep all week. The insomnia is insane and I pray it passes soon. I go through boughts of it for a few weeks then seem to get back to normal.

Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful spring day.
