What is the wall? have not found it.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Cold, windy and very wet here today! We have a carport 2 car lengths long and the rain is blowing at least half way down it which is unusual. I have some plants I sat in an empty window box so I could move them in and out from under the carport and I have had to empty the water out of it 2x today we had that much rain. I really have to get my husband to drill holes in the bottom of the 2 window boxes - they are new and have no drainage. I just hope the 50 some potted plants sitting under the gazebo on the patio table don't blow over. What a mess that will be. I had thought to lift them down to the patio but just woke up after sleeping over my computer all evening - It's after 10 and too late to go out in the cold and rain to start doing that.

Kim - sounds - I hope things continue to improve. You too Lotie.

It was only supposed to be 11C today but it was warm enough to garden in a light sweatshirt in the shade and I had to remove it to just a T-shirt in the sun. My guess would be that it was about 16C (60F). I still have some cleaning up to do in some of the beds that my DH did so much work in but for the most part, the beds are cleaned up and ready for the season. I'm a bit stiff to be sure. We are to have rain until after Sun. so there won't be much more of a chance for a week or so.

Sugaraddict, I hope you'll be able to get the balance you need on your Med's. I know sometimes some medicine keeps you awake and you're still buzzing like a bee, when you're trying to get some sleep for the next day. I know vitamins do that to me if I forget to take them in the morning and take them at night.

I hope everyone has been able to get out and enjoy some sun outside. We've been having rain everyday, 5 out of the 7 days. We were able to nearly complete our chicken coup. We still have the doors and the nests to build.

Deb

I BELIEVE IT'S THE NEW MEDS MAKING HAVE ENERGY. I TAKE 220MG OF ALEVE 2 TIMES A DAY. I ALSO HAVE FLEXIRIL (MUSCLE RELAXER), BUT DON'T USE IT VERY OFTEN AS I HAVE TO TAKE TWICE AS MUCH AS PRESCRIBED TO GET ANY MEDICINAL EFFECT & IT MAKES ME REALLY SLEEPY.

Nancy - I'm afraid you are right - weed and then weed some more, lol. I got about 1/4 of another bed cleaned up today. My DH has cleaned up all the ones in the back - as best as he knows. I still have to go and clip a few things he didn't know what to do with. I couldn't manage without him! He helped lift most of the pots for my sale and this morning I got them out from under the gazebo into the sun light. Tonight he put them back under the gazebo for me bless him. It was really cold working on the north side of the house and I had to stand back every once in awhile to get in the sun to warm up. It was 11C here today.

Donna - geraniums - I've resigned myself to finding some alternative. I usually plant a couple of dozen but I can't at $3.50 each for the ones about 5" high. If the windowsill ones come in now, it's too late. They wouldn't be mature enough until mid summer. I'm hoping the African Daisy's will be available at Home Depot again. Can. Tire has individual ones for $2.99 but Home Depot usually has the multi pack of 8 for $7 or around there. I got some last year and they bloomed most of the summer and filled out nicely. I like that they can go in earlier than some other plants as well.

Donna - Tracker - yes I have the SPAT from SP. It picked up all my aquafit exercise today - I made an elastic band to go on my ankle to hold it. In the garden and doing heavy housework like vacuuming and mopping, I've tried it on my ankle and my wrist but it just won't pick those things up. I've learned with the aquafit it only picks up bits and pieces unless I constantly move my feet so whenever I'm doing arm exercises or anything not requiring leg movement, I have to keep hopping to have it pick it up. I can add stuff on here manually but doesn't count for competitions on here and for records. You can also reclassify the type of exercise which is good because it lists my aquafit as "some type of walking event" or something similar - it varies. When you reclassify you get the full credit for the cals burned too and not some maybe type listing with only a few cals. Today my computer tells me my tracker has logged 12,201 steps, 1,185 cals burned from workouts, 202 mins. in workouts and 5.9 miles gone. That's unusually high for me - more like 8,000 on pool days and anywhere from 700 - 6000 on other days. The steps must be "equivalent to steps" as not all exercise that tracks is steps.

Sugar... Your new med, if that's what's got you so hyper, sounds like me on Prednisone. I was on large doses for weeks and weeks before some surgery for my Crohn's and I was up almost all night doing things - I even went out and gardened a few times with a flashlight, lol. Take care - the soreness is telling you you are overdoing it. Before I knew I shouldn't have anything but Tylonol, I used to take Midol (that's for while on your period - if you don't have that in Cleveland I'm sure there is some other muscle relaxant aspirin for the same purpose) after a heavy stint of either gardening or housework - took away the muscle pain and made it a lot easier. I could use some of that energy right now - I keep nodding off here!

MET MY NEW PSYCHIATRIST ON MONDAY. HE WAS OK. HE CHANGED 1 OF MY MEDS, THE ANTI-DEPRESSANT. THE LAST 2 DAYS I'VE BEEN SPRING CLEANING LIKE SUPER CRAZY. WHICH IS BOTH GOOD & BAD. GOOD BECAUSE I'VE BEEN GETTING STUFF DONE & EXERCISING, 4000-5000 STEPS IN A DAY (WHICH IS WAY ABOVE MY AVERAGE 1500-2500). BAD BECAUSE THE OL' BOD ISN'T USED TO THAT & I HURT PRETTY BAD ALL NIGHT.

YESTERDAY, I TOOK OUT ALL THE STUFF (MOSTLY BOX THAT WERE IN STORAGE) THAT WAS IN THE MASTER CLOSET, VACUUMED, MOPPED, & DUSTED. MOVED ALL THAT STUFF INTO THE SPARE BEDROOM FOR SORTING LATER. THEN TOOK ALL MY CLOTHES FROM THE SPARE ROOM CLOSET & MOVED IT INTO THE MASTER CLOSET, WITH THE OTHER ITEMS THAT BELONGED IN THERE. WASHED DISHES, & STRAIGHTENED UP THE KITCHEN. MOVED OTHER BOXES OF CRAFTING ITEMS INTO ANOTHER CLOSET. I EVEN PULLED APART MY VACUUM & THOROUGHLY CLEANED IT. THE DAY BEFORE I REARRANGED FURNITURE, SCRUBBED DOWN KITCHEN CABINET DOORS, IN THE TUB, SO THEY'D BE READY FOR PAINTING. BUSY, BUSY, BUSY.

LIN, IF YOU WERE HERE, YOU WOULD FIND YOUR GERANIUMS---LOL--WEEDS ARE WHY I DO RAISED BEDS--LOTS LESS WEEDING INVOLVED---WHERE ARE YOU WEARING YOUR TRACKER THAT IT IS NOT PICKING UP THOSE STEPS? I KNOW IN THE POOL, IT IS HARD TO PICK THAT STUFF UP BUT IT SHOULD HAVE PICKED UP FROM THE OTHER STUFF. YOU HAVE SPARK'S TRACKER, RIGHT? GLAD I DO NOT HAVE IT. I LIKE MY ZIP BY FITBIT---I CAN'T WEAR IT IN THE POOL BUT I JUST LOG MY MINUTES IN MANUALLY FOR THAT.
NANCY , BRRRR, I WOULD THINK YOU WOULD NEED YOUR WINTER COAT TIL ABOUT THE END OF MAY THERE.

again today - my tracker picked up 69 of my 90 mins aquafit at the pool. It didn't pick up any of the walking I did while grocery shopping or the steps while I was working in the garden lifting pots out of where I'd stashed about 100 plants for the winter. My DH and I brought them up to the patio so they can have a chance to get some more sun. They are under the gazebo for the nights for now and I'll have to move them out each day for some sun. My annual plant sale is in only 3 weeks and most of the pots have no sign of growth yet, gulp! We also did some more clean-up in a couple of the gardens. Most of the spring clean-up is done in the perennial beds. I'm getting anxious to get started on the new lily bed I'm putting in in the front but my husband is going to take some more grass up and that will take awhile. It's too early here yet anyway but can't help being antsy. We picked up some fertilizer, peat moss and potting soil - all to put in this new garden. I'll probably need more but that's start. A month from now I'll be cursing the need to go out and weed over and over, lol.

Your tracker should have picked up some steps---but it is good to get low numbers at least once a week. Hope you find the flowers you want shortly---try again next week.
SUPPOSED TO BE LOVELY HERE TODAY, BUT IT DID RAIN LAST NIGHT---WHICH WE NEEDED---BUT MEANS I NEED TO WALK AT THE MALL TODAY AS THE PARK HAS SOME BAD SPOTS IF IT RAINS---AND WINDY HERE, TOO. NEXT WEEK WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET 3 DAYS OF RAIN---I HOPE TO GET OUT AND BREAK UP THE SOIL WHERE THE VEGGIES WILL GO LATER.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

Lecates - I went back to Home Depot today beause they were supposed to get a big shipment of plants in - they got nothing and their supplier got nothing. It's way too early to get things but I want to get some before they are all picked over. I have a grow light table and for in a few weeks a portable greenhouse - too cold to put it up yet. It was a beautiful day but only 12 and windy. I went out to get my snow tires changed for my all weather ones which involved 2 trips to my husband's work to pick up the tires and later to take the snow tires back for storage in his work's warehouse. I decided not to work in the garden - to take the advice I was given here last night to take a day to rest. But, the spring cleaning bug got to me. I managed to curb it a bit by doing things I could sit for some of the time. I cleaned out a couple of closet shelves, the book shelves in my desk in the kitchen, and one of the cabinets with shelves in my dresser sorting and organizing and reloading after cleaning the surfaces. Only the tip of the iceberg but a start, lol. While a load of laundry did it's thing in the washer, I worked on one of my partially finished paintings - again sitting down until I had to hang the laundry up on the lines in the basement. My tracker picked up nothing of course. Oops, it's 8 pm and I better go and cover the 4 perennial plants I bought yesterday - they are out under the carport. Have a good night all.

Lecates - good idea to check my glucose levels before going outside to see if more or less bees when high or low.

Was a beautiful sunny day today - only 12C but lovely. I went into HomeDepot today and broke down and bought 4 perennials. Now to keep them sheltered but still outside so I don't have to harden them off again. I was looking for "windowsill" geraniums that I could buy really small and coax along under my grow lights but no one seems to have them. The geraniums at Home Depot were definitely much bigger than the windowsill variety - about 4x - and about 4x the price. I won't have a couple dozen this year at $3.49 a piece, that's for sure.

If it's as nice tomorrow, I hope to get outside and clean up another of the gardens, or at least part of one. It will depend on what time I get home from an oil change and getting my snow tires off and the all-weather tires back on.

LIN, I THINK IT DOES---SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR SKIN SECRETING A DIFFERENT SMELL---YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR LEVELS WHEN YOU GO OUTSIDE TO SEE IF A HIGH OR LOW READING MAKES A DIFFERENCE.
WELL, DH IS OUT OF WORK FOR 2 MORE MONTHS. emoticon
THERE WILL ALSO BE CHANGES TO THE TEAM PAGES STARTING SOMETIME NEXT WEEK---THE BIG CHANGE FOR THE MEMBERS IS THAT WE WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE HUDDLE BUT A TEAM WALL TO POST ON---YOU CAN SHARE PICTURES ON THERE, TOO. MOST OF THE CHANGES AFFECT LEADERS FOR THE MOST PART---MAKING IT EASIER TO SEND MULTIPLE GOODIES AT ONE TIME AND ALSO TO SEE WHO HAS BEEN ACTIVE ON THE TEAM IN THE LAST 30 DAYS.

It's very cold and windy here today too. Lecates - no I don't wear any scents in the spring, summer or fall - at least I try not. It isn't always easy finding my deodorant in unscented and shampoos always have a scent. I've tried different kinds but have the same effect with the bees. I have found that putting folded up Bounce drier sheets in my pockets helps some in keeping them away. I am Diabetic - does that make any difference?

Nancy - cats do take awhile to get used to new places don't they. We have a neighbour who does walk his cat on a leash but I understand you have to start that when they are a kitten. Have you walked yours? My cat Smokey (long gone now) was in a harness once - she wouldn't move for the first while but then took off and came back without the harness somehow which was supposed to be impossible.

I went to Canadian Tire today to look at what they have in their Garden Centre. Mostly they have shrubs but they have a few perennials, some hanging geraniums, pansies and African Daisies. It's too early to buy here unless you've got a real green house as they are too big to go under my grow lights. I was looking for what they call "windowsill geraniums." They are little plants you get in early April and grow on your windowsill for the summer - in my case I usually buy a couple of dozen for my boxes and front garden growing them for weeks under my grow lights. The lady in the Garden Centre told me she doesn't expect them until the long weekend on the 24th of May because of the winter we had. That defeats the purpose of getting cheaper smaller ones as you'd have to grow them first and they'd only be maturing late in the season instead of early. Guess I'll have to plan something else.

Nice day today and it is cool now but feels great and soon it will be in the 90's at least that is what the weather channel is saying. Not looking forward to that.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

We had a beautiful day today - 20! Apparently back to 15 tomorrow. My husband has been out with the leaf blower sucking up some of the protective layer we put on the perennial beds. Tricky job trying not to suck up too much of the mulch. It's felt good getting out into the garden. The ground is still frozen though under the first inch or so of soil. My Coral Bells always look so awful in the spring with tons of dead leaves - fortunately I know they'll get new ones and should look great in several weeks. Unfortunately the bugs are coming out too - there was a large hornet on the shed door handle when I reached for it yesterday and today a nasty black and orange bug flew in the open car window and terrorized my grandson. It's bad enough when you find a bee or something and have to get to the side of the road but for your grandson to be out of reach in the back screaming about you know not what is heart stopping. We were on a bridge at the time and it was several minutes before I could pull over. As I reached for his car door, this bug flew out the window. I see them in the garden all the time but he apparently hasn't seen one before. I sympathize though - I'm afraid of bees and all their varieties. They seem to love being near and on me often several at a time - I seldom get stung but jeeze I hate them. They get to me after awhile and I give up and run for the house. Years ago when I did that one time, as the screen door slammed behind me as I ran into my kitchen, I heard these pinging noises and looked back and these big black wasps (I think they were wasps) had followed me and were smacking into the door. I think I had a narrow escape that time. My husband used to think I was paranoid until he realized that when he goes out to the patio and sits reading the paper for an hour or so, when I come out, within minutes there are bees buzzing around where there hadn't been any before the whole time he was there alone. Creepy things!

Happy Resurrection Day!!

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

We too will be on water restrictions come July - we are every year for July and August. If you could see the rivers and such right now you'd wonder why! In the marina on Little Lake in the south end of the downtown, the water in the lake is up over the docks and covering the parking lot and a lot of the parkland a few hundred feet from the normal water edge. The Holiday Inn next door has rooms on their lower level flooded as well. We go thru this most years as the surface snow and frost melts but the ground is still frozen and there is no way for the water to drain other than surface run-off into the lakes and rivers. Peterborough is located in what is called "cottage country" and the Trent-Severn Waterway has a canal and several locks within the City. Lock 21 is at one end of the Little Lake I mentioned. The dual lifts of that lock are the highest hydraulic boat lifts in the world, with a lift of 19.8 m. There is also a major river going through the City as well. In the summer you often have to wait for lift and draw bridges as they are raised and lowered over the canal to let large pleasure boats through the canal. It's fun to watch.

oh you guys are making me jealous - hanging a fern already, wow! I was out for a few minutes in a sleeveless top - the sun felt good but it was still only about 11C. I was out the other day but only for about 20 mins pulling leaves and dead stuff while I was bbq'g and today my butt feels like it was kicked and kicked hard, lol. My husband raked grass and got a lot of the protective cover of leaves off of some of the perennials today and pulled some of the annuals that were still pretty when it turned too cold last year. I was busy working on the groceries we had bought - I wash all the fruits and veggies, weigh them, cut them up, and bag them in single servings. I cut, weigh and bag our cooked meat the same way. Making meals is a snap - you just reach in and grab a bag of this, 2 of that, etc. cook the veggies and finish cooking the meat I cooked up in big batches. Once a week or so we add pasta, or potatoes or rice to the mix. Jealous or not, keep the stories coming on what you are doing in your yards. Happy Spring and Happy Easter.

Getting plenty of rain now hopefully it will be enough for them to lift the restrictions on watering the lawn or anything else.

I have done my spring cleanup yard work. Last weekend we raked leaves and hauled them to the city yard waste site for 4 hours. Then I waited until just before it stared raining to go out and burn off the dead, dried remains from my flower garden. We have had a drought, so I wanted to be safe about burning, and the timing worked out perfectly. As soon as the surface was burned off, it started sprinkling. Now I am waiting until around May 10 for the last frost to start planting.

Feed your head.
