Good Morning all,

I ended up not doing the sanding yesterday as apparently I didn't have the right grade of sand paper...so that meant I had a day to tackle the "pictures". I spent from 10 until 4pm yesterday hauling out pictures and going through them. Got rid of lots that were poor quality and just didn't stand up to the test of time. Sorted and even got some into an album to deal with later. I came across some old family photos in my Mom's stuff that I knew my cousin would love to see. My scanner is not hooked up and working right now, so I took a photo of the photo with my phone, uploaded the photos to my computer and then emailed them to my cousin. They were all pictures of her mom and dad's wedding. I will get reprints done later so that she can have a set. I still have boxes to go through as I didn't come across the photos that I was actually looking for. This is a major project and hopefully now that I have made a start on it, I can make some headway!

Today will be sanding day as I now have the proper sandpaper. I will be minding Skye today also, she isn't an issue as she pretty much curls up on the sofa and sleeps. She is such a delightful little dog.

We will be leaving to the reunion Friday morning and I thought we would be back on Sunday, but Garry tells me we might go to his mom's yet and not be back until Wednesday. So if you don't see me around, you will know that I am just away. I'm going to try to take my ipad with me, but in case I can't get on line (which I won't be able to at his Mom's) would someone post a challenge for Monday and Tuesday for me please.

Nancy Jane...nice to see your post this morning. How was the summer with family? Hope your school year gives you time to pop in every once in awhile, miss our chats.

Kathryn...I hope you have a good cart for hauling that water. Steps definitely can be tricky. Yay on getting some rain. Hope it's a nice gentle soaking in kind of rain. Have a great day.

Shirl...Thank you for the emails...I laughed so hard about the Newfie Diet one...shared that one with Kaeli and she got a great chuckle too. Have a great day.

Puppy should be arriving anytime now and I need to go and get ready for the day. Have a great day...determine that you will be successful today!

Hugs,
Wanda

Hubby up early and feeling chipper. The treatment are getting harder on him and his afternoons and evening are not so good. One of the side affects seem to be he is hungry all the time. Well I only have healthy food in the house so it won't be to bad. Last night I got feeling sick around supper time and did not eat. Hubby ended up eating my supper plate later in the night, and some banana and crackers and peanut butter.
I walked to Starbucks early this morning and got caught in a down pour on the way back, this is a blessing for drought starved CA. Look like we are having a rainy day. My walking buddy called and wants to go for a walk in the rain. Oh well looks like I am getting my walks in.

Just popping in to say "HI!" School restarts next Wednesday for me, so I have just a week to accomplish everything I can before there's not a moment's rest. I hope that I can do a better job of keeping up this school year. We shall see. Have a great day and thanks for your faithfulness to the team.
Love,
Nancy

Good Morning all,

It was so lovely not to have to get up at 5am this morning. I didn't get up until Garry and Kaeli had to get up for work.

Now that they have gone out the door, I have the day to get a few projects done on my own. I have the crockpot all set up and a roast in it. I WILL get to the pictures today and sort through the ones that I want to take with me to the reunion. Apparently, we don't have the right grade of sandpaper for me to use on the railings, so will have to go and buy some this morning as well as a dehumidifer. We have noticed with all the humidity in the air this summer that even though there isn't any sign of moisture in the basement, there is a musty smell and it feels damp. Will go and look to see how much they are and if I can get a good deal I will get one.

I have some books to take back to the library as well as some that are ready for me to pickup. I need to go and pick up some bananas so throw into the fruit smoothies that I like to make. I'm trying to use up all the fruit that I have in the freezer before I start filling the freezer again with stuff from this years crops.

Shirl...hope your residence meeting is a good one. Are you on the board again this year? Was all the produce that you picked from your DD's garden? Sounds like the garden is really producing! Nothing like fresh goodies from the garden to make a nice meal. I need to get down to my cold storage room and do an inventory once again. I'm thinking of doing some dehydrating of tomatoes and potatoes this year. Not a lot, but give it a try anyway. I have a dehydrator that I haven't really used much, so maybe it's time to get it figured out!

Mauri...thanks for the address, thinking of you as you move!

Kathryn...how's hubby doing?

Mermaid...got that treadmill going yet? *grin*...thought I would give you what for too *grin* My lone little apple on my apple tree is hanging in there. Getting bigger everyday. My lemons on the other hand blew away in the last wind storm that we had.

Wyndy...how are you doing?

Mawmaw....wishing you a great day too.


Time to get off my butt and get some stuff done. See you all later.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good morning all! I started having trouble connecting again on Sat. I was able to get silly Sat. posted and a few other things done then it all went bad again, couldn't connect at all yesterday and didn't think I was going to this morning, but it finally kicked in, thank goodness. Margaret and I got a good walk in on Sat. even stopped at the Farmer's Market. Sunday went to church, came home fixed lunch, then DH and I went out to DD's to let their doggies out, they had gone fishing up at Saginaw Bay, they got 7. While out there DH and I picked green beans, peas, cucumbers, and zucchini, when we got home put some in the community room to share with the other residents, it was all gone this morning. Our supper last night was tomato slices, fresh green beans, cottage cheese, cucumbers and watermelon. Today is our resident meeting at 2. I hope everyone had a good weekend and will have a marvelous Monday.

Wanda glad things cooled off enough that you were able to get a good nights sleep.

Kathryn those personal size pizzas DH and I had were just right and because his blood sugar before supper was only 90, the carbs didn't make his sugar go up too much. Going out to eat can be a challenge for a diabetic, but we try and make the best choices we can.

Mermaid did you get your treadmill set up? Come on girl, you can do it.

Mauri glad you have help lined up for your move.

Nancy Jane it's good to see you back on here, been missing you.

Wyndy keep moving forward.

Wishing all a marvelous Monday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

It's a holiday Monday here today. Not sure what we are going to be doing. Perhaps I can persuade Garry to just relax with me *grin*. (in other words, I don't want to do any reno's today)

We had a nice surprise visit yesterday from great friends that we haven't seen in a very long time. They were passing through town and decided to take a chance and see if we were home. Garry and I went to school with Dana and he was one of our best men at our wedding. His wife Bernie came along once we were all through school. So nice to see them.

This coming weekend I will be away in Saskatchewan. We have a reunion to attend and looking forward to going. Hopefully will see people that we know/knew and have a great time. Regardless, we will be having a mini family reunion too as Garry's mom, one sister and one brother plus my brother and his wife will be going. It's a town reunion so hopefully will see people we haven't seen in forever. We will be leaving on Friday and be back on Monday.

Kathryn...I am choosing to conquer also...thanks for the great quote.

Have a great day everyone.
Hugs,
Wanda

Kathy do Corelle plates break? My other set has pieces that have chipped or broken but the corelle I bump around against things and they take it all. Get that treadmill set up, what are you waiting for? You need and want to get in shape, come on girl get it done!!!! emoticon

Wanda it feels good to sleep in hubby let me today. Got my bills paid yesterday too now all I have to do is pay rent tomorrow. It feels good to have that all done for the month. Our gas and light bill come in the middle of the month but I pay them early when I know we have money.

Going up to the library and out for emoticon and emoticon have been good and did not go all last month. I plan on treating myself out for pizza only once a month.

Hey Sparkies...

Wanda - you reminded me of the other day when Andy dropped his plate of Spaghetti and it went everywhere... on the fridge, stove front and all under and on the cabinets... I'm still finding more red sauce on things down there. hehehe On a positive note though... my corelle plate did not break. yay!
Sounds like you are getting so much done. Hope you find the flooring you like.

Shirl - Glad you enjoyed the concert and time with family. I finally text my DD this morning to make sure she was ok... she left here 2 or 3 weeks ago and only heard from her once last week saying she'd be back here in a couple days. So glad she's ok. I heard on the news that a body was found and just had to make sure it wasn't her. Kids. hehehe Well mine anyway. I'm trying to be positive about them but it's a big challenge. hehehe So mostly just don't talk about them. emoticon Better to just splash ... hehehe
I was thinking about you when I took my Zyrtec the other night. Glad the vicks helped. But I swear by my Zyrtec. It just dries all that up and no more drainage... Until the next day and the dr gave me a nasal spray to use every morning to help too. I've got it bad and for years now. So many sinus infections and none since I started on the spray and Zyrtec.
Good luck to you. ((hugs))

Kathryn - ok you reminded me that I was gonna set up my treadmill again and start walking. hehehe Yes I will be grumpy about it too. hehehe Thanks for the reminder. hehehe

Hello to all that I've not addressed.

Hope that you all have a great day.

Good Morning all,

Wow, I haven't slept this late in forever. It was nice and cool in the house last night, didn't even have to have the fans on...I never woke up until almost 9am! It feels good to be so rested.

Yesterday was a busy day at home for me. Spent ages on the phone with various businesses getting somethings sorted out. Our Sobey's food store that I always shop at has decided to drop their points system and go with Airmiles. Unfortunate to say the least, but it did mean that I had to spend a bit of time getting my card linked to the airmiles account and then it meant a call to Mastercard as I have a Sobeys Mastercard and that will no longer be valid. Then a call to Bell Mobility to inquire about a charge on my bill and get it removed. After that it was paying bills online and heading out to the pet store to get pet supplies and the grocery store to get people supplies. Laundry is all done and my kitchen floor all washed as well as the cupboard fronts. ( I dropped a can of pop that I was attempting to put into the fridge for Garry...it sprayed everywhere!)

Today is a cooler day outside, looks like we might get some rain. Garry and I are heading into the city to check out flooring. Then it's back home to see what we can get accomplished at home.

Shirl...Sounds like you had a great time with family and at the concert . Kismet is the same when it comes to the litter. I have a carpet that extends from under her litter box now that helps to control the spread of the litter. Have a great day today. Hugs.

Kathryn...love your goals for this month. You can do it!

Garry is calling, it's time to go. See you all later.

Hugs,
Wanda

Shril enjoy your pizza, I have not had any for the month of July but am going to the pizza buffet on Sunday. I am only going once this month.

I am trying to lose 4 pounds this month and hope to do it by eating better. I went and bought a ton of fish and chicken to have for my dinners. I am going to bake whole chicken to have for our lunches. I have changed my Spark page so everyone can see my nutrition and fitness tracker, not that I think I am doing any thing special just so I can be accountable for what I eat and how much exercise I do.

Good afternoon all. We are having a tiny little shower, I guess all the good rain has gone around us all week. The concert was good last night, GD and the kids rode their bikes down and stayed and listened for a while, she still had to feed them supper. This evening we are meeting her and the kids, her mom, dad, brother, MIL, my friend, Margaret at Pizza Hut 6 p.m. for supper. I've been in a cleaning mode today, bathroom and kitchen all done, need to sweep around Mario's litter box, he's a messy boy, lol. DH is trying to put the shower caddy together. Hope all are having a good Friday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

My first day of holidays begins today. The temps were not as bad during the night and managed to get some sleep...yay!

I ended up working overtime again yesterday just to try and get as much done as possible so that my co-worker when she gets back from holidays next week isn't overwhelmed. Nine hours of overtime last week...so much for making an attempt to use up some of my overtime hours *grin*.

Today I will tackle some house hold chores, laundry and going to the pet store to get some litter and food for Kismet. I might even have time to do a wee bit of relaxing on the back deck with a good book in between laundry loads.

Garry came home from work not feeling well yesterday, I hope that he isn't coming down with the flu. I think perhaps it could be just the heat and the fact that he has had so much stress happening lately with work and other things. Hopefully he is feeling better this morning with having had a better night's sleep.

I haven't been pulling big numbers on the the donating to the team points, but I did manage a lovely 25 points on the wheel this morning for me! Woo Hoo.

Wishing all a great and wonderful first day of a new month.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good afternoon, trying to read all the posts. Margaret and I had a nice 90 min. walk this morning, there was a wonderful breeze, it was warming up pretty good by the time we got back, that tall, cool glass of water tasted wonderful. After she left we went for some lunch and out to Walmart to pick up my prescription, while there bought a new corner shower caddy, our other one was plastic and one of the shelves had broken, this one is a stainless, rust resistant one, much nicer. Picked me up some new headbands to help keep my hair back off my face. Tonight's group are The Whiskey Pickers, there is a chance for showers later, but hope they hold off until after 8:30. It's been on the muggy side today.

Mermaid I may pick up some of that Zertec, I just don't think the Singular is working that great. I did discover if I rubbed Vickis Rub on my throat and upper chest that helped a lot and I slept really well and did not cough or have the drainage. Never heard of those kind of grapes before.

Wyndy hope your tummy settles down.

Kathryn glad your doc was pleased with your weight loss. My DH is a grape eater, I am lucky if I get a handful or two out of a big bunch, oh well, they are good for him, he could be nibbling on something worse.

Mauri know you are going to busy what with your move coming up soon, hope all goes well.

Deb can you believe we are ending July today, where is our summer going.

Wishing all a good Thursday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Kathryn - We have a pallet in the basement full of them boxes from the business we had before. Some we have to keep for a lone time like payroll but some really need to go. That is a lot of Shredding or burning. hehehe Good luck with yours. And stay cool today. Yikes!

Oh and Andy just came in with about a cup of giant muskadine (sp) grapes from his garden. Haven't tasted them yet. But they are for making Wine I think. Not the same as we buy at the farmers market/walmart/Aldi's. hehehe

Have a good day.

Kathy have fun cleaning off your desk, mine is covered with junk, but most of it is in a storage box I know I need to clean out soon. It is filled with old paid bills. Why am I holding on to them?

Wanda hope it doesn't get to busy at work for you. Sorry it is so warm, it is getting up to 104 today. I won't run the AC until this afternoon. We are having workers come in and caulk the windows and do weather stripping on the door. They hung that door wrong and there is a big gap on the bottom.

Shril hope every thing went well at the dentist

Debbie sounds like you have a lot of home improvement projects to do like Wanda, owning a home has it's fun times.

Going to the farmer's market because I am craving grapes. Use to be all I craved was junk foods.

Hey Sparkies... Happy Thursday to one and all...

Not much happening around here these days. Still very hot and humid except yesterday was actually kinda nice. Not as much humidity. But it is back up today. hehehe Oh well it's the price you pay to have our Winters...

Kathryn - Happy that your Doc was happy with your weight loss. WTG!

Wanda - You sure have lots to do this next week. Good luck with it all... Sounds like a lot of work to me. Mermaids don't like all that dry land work anymore. hehehe

Shirl - You know I used to have all that sinus problems like you mentioned. My doctor put me on Zertec (he gave me a script for it not as expensive as the over the counter kind) And i take it every night and it sure has helped me. So maybe you should get the over the counter and try it at bedtime (cuz it makes you sleepy) for a week or so and see if it helps. None of the other meds helped. Good luck with it. Hope you feel better.

Wyndy - Bummer the problems you are having with your raw veggies. I had that same thing happen to me the other day so just layed off of the salads a couple days and now better. Good luck.

Deb - Good luck with all your baseboards as well. Those solar tubs sound interesting. I am sitting here now with the lights on cuz it's too hot to open the drapes yet. hehehe As soon as the sun goes up a little more I can open them. Good luck with your projects.

Heard from Mauri that she is moving in a week and finally has a plan. Lots of work to do before that. UGH the thought of moving makes this mermaids back hurt. hehehe But she has some friends and movers coming to help. Thank goodness...

Hubby just cleaned off his desk which means I have to now clean off mine posting and filing. hehehe

Have a great day Sparkies... emoticon

Good Morning all,

Phew...it was hot yesterday and sleeping was not something that happened other than in spurts. Wow..it was 30 degrees in the house when we went to bed last night. I locked the storm door, but left the front door open to hopefully get some cool night air in the house. Left windows open also. I checked the temp this morning when I got up and it's still 25.5 in the house this morning. Things did not cool off much last night. On the plus side of these temps...I don't have to shovel anything *grin*.

My last day of work today for a couple of weeks. I worked overtime yesterday as we got a big shipment in. I got it all unpacked and this morning I will start receiving it into the system. If we get another shipment today, I will stay and get that all unpacked also so that Gail can begin receiving on Tuesday morning. (We have a long weekend this weekend, Monday is a holiday).

Shirl...hope you managed ok at the dentists yesterday. Who's playing tonight at the concert?

Mauri...how's the moving coming along? Where did you find a new place?

Wyndy...It's tough when the things we eat don't agree with our body. Hope you are doing better today.

Kathryn...way to go on the good report from your doctor on your weight elimination.

Kathy...move over, I'm joining you in that pool!

Deb...I can't even paint right now as it's too hot. The paint doesn't like to go on properly nor does it dry nicely. Oh well...there are is always other projects that need doing *grin*.

Wishing everyone a great day today...keep on smiling.

Hugs,
Wanda

First off - I am having all sorts of reactions to raw food. My salad has left my body within 15 minutes. Guess that's another thing off my list, or at least off the try to have 2 days in a row list. Yesterday I was so discouraged and depressed. I have not yet been able to make myself cook my lettuce. I remember cooked spinach and I liked it so much that I would pick the spinach in the garden and give it to the neighbour before my mom would get home. emoticon

2nd - i've been having trouble with my tracker. The help desk said to change the battery even though it showed 1/3 power still. Have you tried to open that sucker????? Anyway, all the banging and wiggling about made it suddenly work so I'm not even going to keep trying to get it open. LOL

3. It's in the 90's today I'm inside!

4. Hmmmmmmmm, can't remember. LOL.

God bless your endeavours

My doctor was very pleased with my weight loss he gave me the biggest smile and said I was doing good

Took two nice long walks this morning before it got to hot. Going to farmers market tomorrow craving grapes. Doing laundry today so that means stair climbing

Good morning all. Have a dental cleaning appointment this morning. Hope to get a walk in this afternoon, we have chance of showers again today, haven't really been getting much in the way of rain, just sprinkles here and there. My sinuses are bothering me, hope I can get through my teeth cleaning ok, I'll ask her not to put me all the way back. We were down in the upper 40's again last night, great for sleeping, even though I had to elevate my head, darn drainage, I don't think my singular is helping much, may have to ask my doc for something different. GD and kids biked over to our place yesterday, gave her the bread I had made for her, they are planning on coming down to the concert tomorrow night.

Wanda enjoy your time off and getting projects done.

Kathryn was your doctor pleased with the 10 lb. lose?

Mermaid are you splashing around in your pool today? That's nice you have something over it to give you some shade.

Wyndy what's on your agenda today?

Debbie you and Wanda both seem busy with those to do projects.

Pris anymore artwork in the making?

Mauri are you on the bus today and how's the packing coming along?

Welcome to all new members.

Wishing all a wonderful Wednesday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Good Morning all,

We are in a heat wave right now and it hasn't been cooling down much during the night time. Fans are going like crazy in the house. I have been opening all the windows at night once the sun goes down to help cool the house off, closing them and drawing the blinds in the morning. Supposed to get up to plus 32 today. So blessed that I work in an AC building.

I'm running a bit behind this morning as I slept a bit longer than usual. I like to wake up before the alarm goes off as the noise is so jarring. *grin*

Have a great day everyone.
Hugs,
Wanda

Hello, had a few sprinkles this morning, but after getting back from taking Glenna to her doctor Margaret and I were able to go for an outside walk, cooler temps and a great walk. Just got through with lunch, need to do up dishes and then go to Walmart for a prescription refill on my nasal spray. Weighed this morning and dropped one more lb. I am liking my shorter hair.Hope all are having a terrific Tuesday.

Hugs,

Good Morning all,

It was a warm one here last night. The temperature didn't dip far at all. Supposed to get up to plus 30 today. Sure feels like a lot of humidity in the air though. We kept the fans going all night last night.

A very busy day yesterday at work, I ended up working overtime and it's a good possibility that I will be working overtime today also. Oh well, such is the way it goes and I have holidays coming up anyway. Life is good.

Deb...I like the idea of the solar tubes, but unfortunately we live in a 4 level split and the only place that would benefit from them would be the bedrooms. We are actually considering solar panels on the roof of the house as our roof is actually laid out well for them. They are pricey though. We have to do some more investigating into the feasibility of them yet. Any way that we can be greener and save money is great in my books. We are looking at blowing in some more insulation yet this year too. The things we do to try and save money in the long run *grin*.

Shirl...bless your GD for cutting your hair for you. I bet it is short and super nice. Enjoy your day today.

Kathryn...are you anywhere near Venice beach! Wow, we were watching the storm that hit there on the news last night.

Wyndy...how's it going?


Wishing everyone that stops by today a wonderful day. I'm out the door early this morning to try and get things accomplished at work. Have a great day.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hi everyone!

Sounds like a lot of busy peeps here!
Wyndy - be sure to take it easy.
Wanda - Hey - We must be on the same page with projects. I have new baseboards and trim to paint and install now. Oh, you want light in your house! Have you thought of solar tubes? Those are amazing! We installed five of them in our house about 4yrs ago. It made a big difference, not only in daylight, but in our power bill. We don't have to turn on lights until it is practically dusk.

Well, I am thinking of signing off tonight. Sorry for not reading further back and catching up to everyone.

Good morning, looks like we might get a little more rain this morning. Shortly I'll be leaving for my GD's, she is cutting my hair, can't wait, made a loaf of banana bread to take to her. We are having cool nights in the 50's again, great for sleeping with the window open. Maybe Margaret and I can still get a walk in this afternoon after I get back from GD's. Tomorrow morning taking a neighbor lady to her doctors. Well need to be leaving. Wishing all a good Monday.

Hugs,

Good Morning all,

My last work week begins before my holidays start...woo hoo!. This will be a busy week at work and then a very busy holiday time. My sandpaper and paint is all ready for me to start on the railings and baseboard trim. That will a big chore just getting them sanded and ready to be painted. I just keep telling myself how nice it will look when they are all done *grin*.

We had a beautiful sunny day yesterday. Garry was able to get the lawn mowed, which made him very happy and I was able to do some weeding in the garden.

Wyndy...yay on seeing your post this morning. Glad to hear that your knee is mending and that you had a nice holiday. Those fires sure were destructive. What's really frustrating is so many of them were man caused. All the rain that we have had though in the past few days sure has helped. Good luck with getting back into your exercise routine. Hugs.

Kathryn...I have a stack of books that I am slowly making my way through too. So blessed to have a library that supplies all my reading material.What author are you reading now?

Deb...I will post pictures once all the trim is finished around the garage door. I'm so pleased with my new front door. I still am adjusting to having more light coming in...I keep thinking that the front door is open! My holidays that are coming up will be spent trying to get all the railings sanded and painted and then the new baseboards painted too. I'm thinking that we might just spray the baseboards at the same time that we spray all the interior doors. Quicker and no brush strokes! Have a great day.

Shirl...hope you had a great Serenity Sunday.

Mermaid Kathy...I enjoyed my virtual float in your pool yesterday...thanks *grin*.

Have a great day all,
Hugs,
Wanda

Back from holidays and I think rested up from the holidays. We went to Alberta to visit both sides of the family. We drove 3049km in 9 days and I was exhausted. I find it so stressful meeting new people and visiting everyday. I love to meet the people I am just in a stress mode before it happens. When we were leaving the Banff National Park we drove by the start of the big forest fire. They were just bringing in the helicopters to start dumping water. Unfortunately it didn't work and the fire progressed and burned many acres, about the size of a small city.

I am going to actually attempt to walk around the block for the first time in a long long time. If it's raining I will try the treadmill. Yes, I can walk without pain, even my torn ligaments in my knee have healed. I am rather anxious about it all as I don't want to reinjure anything but I'm going to try it slow and see how it works. Well, I am so out of shape I think slow will be top speed.

God bless your endeavours
Wyndy

Sounds like everyone is keeping busy. I am going to the library this afternoon as usual, need new books to read. I have a diet book on hold may give me some new ideas, I never know. The last one I read gave me some good information about added sugar in my salad dressing and low fat foods. I am also getting some new mysteries from an author I started reading. Once I find an author I like I read up what ever they have at the libraries. I get on line and put books on hold from libraries not in my walking distance and they ship them to my library.

Can't wait to see the door! I understand the short time frame to get things done. Weather, work week, days, time... So much for relaxing! LOL

Glad the rain isn't being bratty for people right now. It is definitely moving east. I guess there are some storms to hit the east coast. Yikes. I am thankful for the no rain here and the nice sunshine and warmth! I think we need to get to our trim boards for the inside of the house now that the flooring is down. It just never ends! Phew!!!!

But, I want to be outside! Well, I guess I will be....I have to paint those trim boards. Bring it on!

I better go!! :)

Good Morning all,

Well the new front door looks great...I will try and take a picture today from the outside. I tried one from indoors yesterday and it didn't show up well. What a difference it makes with the light coming into the front room now. Just having that half window in the door makes a big difference and what I really like is that I can now see who is on the otherside before opening the door!

Very cold and damp still for most of the day yesterday. By late afternoon it started to clear off and this morning is beautiful and sunny. Garry decided that we would light the fire pit and roast wieners this evening...OK, I can manage one.

We were over to Shy and Kyle's yesterday for a wee visit. Their place is starting to come together very nice. The down side of all the rain is that they discovered a spot where their roof leaks. On the plus side of that...they discovered a spot where their roof leaks. *grin*. Now they can get that repaired and move forward once again.

Mermaid Kathy....thanks for not sending more water this way...I'm done with rain for a bit. Poor Garry is anxious to get the grass cut as the clover has taken over almost entirely as well as we now have mushrooms growing in the front yard. Oh well, if the suns keeps shining, he should be able to cut it today and our front yard won't look so bad. We still want to tear out all the grass that is there and re-sod the front, not sure if that will make it back up to the top of the list or not this year. Maybe in the fall. Yay on Andy getting a covering for over top of the pool so that you have some shade while floating. Sunshine and floating on the water, ahh what a great way to relax. Have an awesome day my friend.

Shirl...I got all my peas shelled that I purchased and they are blanched and done up into vacuum sealed bags in the freezer. I'm thinking that I need to go to farmers market and get some more. We love peas in our household and I put them in just about everything. Some what like garlic! *grin*. I just have this week at work and then I am off on holidays from August 1 to 16th. A very busy week ahead of me and then a busy time at home as I start the sanding of all the railings in the house and re-painting them. Garry brought his paint sprayer home from the kids yesterday and we are going to try and find the time to also get all the interior doors re-done with a fresh coat of paint and all new handles. So much to still do! At least we know where our money is going *grin*. Have a wonderful Serenity Sunday. Hugs.

Debbie...We have such a short time to do renovations in. With working all week and only a brief few months where we can leave windows and doors open the rush is on to get as much done as possible while the weather cooperates. This year the to do list is taking a good beating. I'm sure there will always be something that we what to change or replace, but it's nice to have so many projects almost finished this year. We still have the ensuite to gut and re-do and new flooring up the stairs and in all the bedrooms, painting (which will be done, hopefully at the end of August now). Life at our house is always filled with fun and activity *grin*. Have a great day.

Kathryn...Way to go on the weight elimination. Your doctor is going to be so proud of your efforts. Keep up the great work. You and your hubby are going to be in great shape. Have a wonderful day today. Hugs.

Time to get busy,
Hugs,
Wanda

Good Morning Positive Sparkies...

Spent yesterday vacuuming and doing laundry. My laundry room is out and around the double carport. And it's so hot and humid out there wasn't sure I'd make it. But I did. hehehe Still have more to do today as I've let it build more than usual. I think because it's so HOT AN HUMID. hehehe But I did cool off in the pool after I was done sweating for the day. It felt so good after such a hot day. Andy has put up shade cloth over the pool now to keep it from getting any warmer. Most of the Northerner would think it was bath water as it is. hehehe

Ok I need to get an early start on my sweating... UGH... I mean can't wait. bahahaha Is it Winter yet? hehehe

Shirl - I've never had date bread... Will have to try some of that sometime. Glad they got Clenten's Appt at the VA now with an actual Dr there this time. hehehe

Kathryn - AWESOME on that 10 lbs down. Your doctor will be so happy with you.

Have a blessed day everyone...

~~~S*P*L*A*S*H~~~ For all that need it and oops... Hope it didn't get to Wanda's place. Sounds like she's had enough splashing from yesterday. Sorry didn't mean to soak everything so much... Me tail fin is getting stronger with them Splashes eh? hehehe

My end goal is closer in reach as the scale is going in the right direction again. I reached a small goal of taking off 10 pounds since my last doctor's appointment. I can't wait to see the smile on my doctor's face.

Wow!
You sound busy with the rain, the gardening, home projects!

We had a bit of rain, thunder, lightening sweep through our area (Washington State) on Wednesday. They said our area got about 6 inches of rain that day. That is crazy! I missed it since it didn't hit the area where I work so had no clue it was coming down that bad elsewhere in our area. We are back to the sunshine now though!'

Don't ya love home projects. Just makes you feel good!
We have been quite busy with ours. Kitchen remodel, flooring in the kitchen, hallway and entry way. New internal doors (white ones). but, wow. looks so good!
Now, we need to get the trim boards so I can start painting them and get them installed.

Hubby is taking a break so he can play in the garage before we finish up some things inside. He wants and needs to tinker for a bit.

Wedding plans. That sounds fun and in Mexico. Cool!

Good Morning all,
I wasn't sure if I would be on this morning or helping Garry build an Ark! Boy, when the storm hit us yesterday it really hit us. Winds and rain enough to turn the street out front into a river and we couldn't see across the school year behind us for the rain. My lone little apple managed to hang onto the tree during all the winds. Amazing considering the number of downed trees there are all around now.
This morning I will be going out and tipping over all my potted plants to try and empty out some of the excess water from them. Even will drains in the bottom of the pots there was so much rain coming down that they filled up. My tomato plants survived although they do look a little worse for wear. My potato plants are still standing but looking a little wind tossed. My onions are all flattened, but should be ok. Oh the joys of weather!

Garry is taking the front door off right now and will be taking it to Windsor Plywood to pick up our new door. They are going to match the cuts for the hinges etc to the old door first so that when we put the new one back in it should fit great. The new garage door looks great, we are still waiting for the outside trim to be added. It was on back order so should be done next week. The new windows hopefully will be done the first week of August.

Shy booked her first bridal dress appointment for August 16th, so the excitement of her choosing a dress begins! There are about 30 guests that have already booked to attend the wedding in Mexico. Everyone that she and Kyle really wanted there, so they are very happy. There might still be about 45 yet if the rest make the decision to attend.

Shirl...with Clenton's appointment being changed, it sounds like it was a good change as far as the time goes. I didn't get my steps in yesterday as it was far to miserable to even consider being outdoors. The one time that I had to step out the back door to shelter a plant that was being tossed about...I was soaked within seconds. Had to come in and change and dry off. Instead, I choose to bake some brownies and ice them with cream cheese icing, make a pot of chili and shell all the peas that I purchased through my organics delivery. Today I will blanch them and get them into the freezer for this coming winter. Hope you have a great day.

Kathryn...I really enjoy the quotes that you find. You seem to have a knack of finding the ones that really speak to me. Thank you so much.

Hope everyone takes some time today to smile and laugh. Create a positive ripple effect where ever you may be.

Hugs,
Wanda

Good morning, looks like we have rain clouds moving in for today and tomorrow, but it's a little on the dry side so we really could use some. Silly Saturday is posted, so glad my computer has been behaving itself lately so I can get on here.

Debbie welcome back.

Going to be doing some cleaning today, it's a cooler day so hope to get lots done and won't have to run the AC.

Wishing all a silly Saturday, find some laughter today!

Good day to all! It's a nice day, but we do have rain headed this way for Sat. & Sun. We had a few more at coffee hour this time, last time only had 4, today we had 8, I have two slices of date bread left out of two loaves, and those are for me and Margaret after our afternoon walk. Last night's concert was very good, Soultown was the group playing, GD couldn't make it this time, she said maybe next Thursday. Well DH's appointment got changed from Aug. 4 to Aug. 18, when they scheduled it they did not know the doctor was not going to be in that date, the good thing is now we don't have to wait till 2 to see the doctor, it will be 1, so not such a long wait in between, both of our girls are taking us down. Lunch is on cooking, butternut squash, pork chops and some mixed frozen veggies and cantaloupe.

Wanda glad you didn't get the severe weather and yay on the new garage door.

Kathryn keep those great quotes coming, hope your sleep has been better. The last couple nights I've woken at 3 a.m. and 2 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep, I think it's the steroid I am taking, but am almost done with that.

Mermaid are you going to be splashing in your pool today?

Wishing all a fab Friday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Happy Friday everyone!

Had a long and busy day yesterday. Our new garage door is installed and oh my is it ever quiet! No more clunk, clunk, clunk as it opens, it's a nice soft smooth operation now. The trim for around the door on the outside still needs to be installed, but that will be towards the end of next week as apparently it is on order still. As long as we have a working door that is ok.

Today, I am up bright and early as Kyle will dropping Skye off to visit me for the day while they are at work. I'm glad that it is not storming bad, at least I won't have to deal with a frightened dog. We still have wind and rain, but thankfully no thunder and lightening. Kaeli and I were frantically moving everything that we could into shelter last evening as they broadcast severe weather alerts over the radio and tv. Somehow, we missed getting the weather, we are just getting the rain and wind. So far it looks like my lone little apple on my apple tree is still hanging on LOL.

Shirl...Yay on getting your hair appointment and also Clenton getting his breathing test appointment. Keeping you in my prayers. So nice that your girls are going to be taking you. I'm sure that will be a great support. Enjoy the concert tonight, who's playing at this one?

Kathryn...Sleep has been illusive around here too the past few nights, but I think that is more due to how hot and muggy it's been and to my over active brain! Too many projects and thoughts running crazy through my mind. *grin* Last night was better, it cooled off pretty well with the rain. I find that a nice rain at night is always great to sleep in. Hope you get some sleep too. Hugs.

Mermaid Kathy...I'm thinking that a nice watermelon, red onion and feta cheese salad will on the agenda this weekend. What's on your?

Wishing a great day to everyone that stops by today.

Hugs
Wanda

Good morning, well for at least 30 more mins. lol. Beautiful day shaping up, comfortable. Got some calls made this morning that I needed to get done, one was to my GD for a haircut, that'll be happening Monday, talked with my sis her DH is having cataract surgery on his right eye Monday, then they'll do the left one later, his are really bad, he can't hardly see at all. Ann Arbor VA called today and DH has an Aug. 4, appointment at 11:00 for a breathing test and then at 2 he'll see the lung doctor, our girls will be taking us down, he doesn't have an eye clinic appointment yet, but they'll be calling to set that up, can't do both in one day anyway, cause at the eye clinic you never know how long it's going to take, they are usually pretty busy. Have date bread baking for coffee hour tomorrow. Tonight is the free concert, GD and her family might join us this evening. We got a great walk in yesterday morning, it was just right for a nice walk.

Wanda that's nice you can get together in Aug. for a reunion, what fun. Sounds like you have a pretty full day today also, oh well, it keeps us out of trouble when we are kept busy, lol.

Mermaid hope your headache and neck just keep getting better. My predisone helped a lot for my coughing and drainage, feeling much better.

Kathryn glad you get such good information from the class, I use to go, we have them out at ALIVE now but I haven't been to a class in a long time.

Wishing all a great Thursday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Positive quote-Before we can see properly we must first shed our tears to clear the way

Up early today as I could not sleep, my sleeping pills are not working. The drug store gave me ones from a different MFR and these don't work. I sleep like I had not taken any thing. I woke up every time hubby rolled over. I got up at 4:30 and said what the heck I can't sleep. It is important for losing weight to get your sleep. I am going back to the drug store and have them get the pills from the other MFR.
