Nancy, You're right, there is nothing that can be done to a cracked rib. I cracked my husbands rib when we were playing around in our younger days. I had jabbed him in the rib and I heard something crack. He went to the doctor, and the doctor told him there was nothing that could be done. The doctor gave him some painkillers and that was it. Sorry to hear about your injury, just take it easy.

Keep saying I can do this!

IT HAS BEEN VERY WARM FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR,, TODAY WE HAVE A GOOD STRONG WIND WHICH REALLY FEELS GOOD,, THE TEMPS HAVE DROPPED TOO,, WE ARE AT ABOUT 75 RIGHT NOW.

I THINK I MAY HAVE CRACKED A RIB, AND IF THAT IS THE CASE THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE FOR IT, AS I WASHED THE BLIND IN THE TUB ON SATURDAY EVENING, I KNOCKED AND REALLY KNOCKED UP AGAINST THE LEDGE ALONG THE SIDE OF THE TUB,, WHENEVER I GO TO GET UP OR REACH IT KILLS,

DEB. HOPE YOU DO GET SOME TIME TO ENJOY SOME FISHING

I HAVE LAUNDRY ON THE GO AGAIN BUT NOT TOO MUCH BESIDES THAT PLANNED
TAKE CARE ALL AND ENJOY THE REST OF THE DAY emoticon

Forecast for this week will be approaching 92 degrees by the weekend. I'm sure I'll be taking cover and taking more breaks to get out of the Sun.
Lecates, I'm moving the Greenhouse because I have a better spot for it.. With having the trampoline and the greenhouse in my backyard next to the patio, they together take up too much space. Also I can't mow the grass under the trampoline with the greenhouse next to it. My daughter is thinking of getting rid of the trampoline, because the kids are not using it as much. It's only a matter of time till I get my yard back.
I planted the Joe Pye 2 weeks ago, but I haven't seen anything yet. It says it could take 3 weeks. I'm wondering if the seeds were good, I bought them on Amazon, but the seeds were in a clear plastic square bag, nicely wrapped, but were delivered in a legal sized white envelope. I suspicious why I paid extra money for shipping. If they don't come up, I'm going to see if there is any guarantee to replace the seeds.

Keep saying I can do this!

Took it a little easier, repaired the sprinkler system that was originally was here when I moved in, and changed some sprinkler heads on the new system. That original system allows other hose connections for me to water by hand, way back on the hill and the side of the garage.

I accomplished a lot this weekend, so I'm pretty happy. Next is catching up with the weeds and trying to get my Greenhouse moved up the hill. Next weekend is Free Fishing for everyone, so if I can get some of this done during the weekend I can go out fishing.

Keep saying I can do this!

I'm so tired today after pulling 3 stumps out of the ground, weeding and moving blocks to the front planter. I spent 5 hours trying to get the area for the Greenhouse cleaned up to move. It will take next weekend to get it done, plus I may need some dirt to level the area.

Jayne, so sorry to hear about the pain your having. Seems it happens every time to my husband, when he gets a tooth pulled. The Dentist never figures anyone is going to need pain medication to get through a traumatic experience. I send my prayers to you, maybe you could try Extra Strength Tylenol and Salt Water warm mouth rinses. The other girls might be able to suggest something that might work. The Gel might work, I wonder if Evelyn means Oragel.

Keep saying I can do this!

HEY FOLKS! SORRY TO HAVE BEEN MIA FOR SO LONG. NOT BEEN SO MUCH BUSY AS LAZY, I GUESS. HEHE I DID HOWEVER GET MY FRONT FLOWER BEDS CLEARED AND COMPLETELY REDONE! CHECK OUT MY PICS ON MY SPARK PAGE! THE FLOWERS AND TOMATOES AND PEPPERS HAVE ALL GROWN EXPONENTIALLY SINCE THOSE WERE TAKEN, TOO! HOPEFULLY WE WILL HAVE A NICE CROP OF BIG BOY TOMATOES THIS YEAR! AND CHERRY TOMATOES AND GREEN BELL PEPPERS, TOO!
RIGHT NOW I'M HURTIN' FOR CERTAIN. HAD UPPER 8 TEETH REMOVED AND DENTURE INSTALLED (RITE BEFORE THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND) AND NOW I'M SWOLLEN AND IN PAIN, WITH NOBODY IN THE OFFICE FOR ANY HELP OR SUPPORT OR EVEN AN RX FOR AN ANTIBIOTIC . MY NEXT APPT. IS THURS. I HOPE MY WHOLE FACE DOESN'T FALL APART BEFORE THAT! I JUST WANTED A PRETTY SMILE AND NO MORE PAIN FROM BAD TEETH! DIDN'T THINK I WAS ASKING FOR TOO MUCH SEEING AS HOW MY DH AS PAIN THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR ALL THIS!! MONEY WE COULD HAVE GOTTEN A NEW ROOF ON THE HOUSE WITH!!
I REALLY THOUGHT I HAD PICKED A GREAT DOCTOR TO DO THIS, BUT MAYBE VACATIONS ARE MORE HIS THING THAN PATIENT SATISFACTION. RIGHT NOW, I'M JUST IN PAIN AND VERY ANGRY. IF YOU PRAY, PLEASE PRAY FOR ME THAT I DON'T DEVELOPE ANYTHING HORRIBLE WHILE I WAIT FOR MY NEXT APPT.! PLEASE.
OUR WEATHER HAS BEEN WARMISH TILL TODAY AND WE HAVE A LOT OF CLOUD COVER FROM THE TROPICAL DEPRESSION/STORM COMING IN AROUND CHARLESTON, SC. , SO IT'S NICE A COOL TODAY!! WISH I FELT GOOD AS THERE IS PLENTY I COULD DO IN THE BACK YARD. MOSTLY JUST HOLDING ICE AGAINST MY FACE.
HOPE Y'ALL ARE HAVING A GREAT SUNDAY! I'M GOING TO SIT BACK WITH MY ICE PACK AND WATCH THE CARDINALS AND GOLD FINCHES AT THE FEEDERS. ((HUGS))

HOPE, I HOPE YOU GET THE COLOR YOU WANT BUT THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERERENT COLORS, BUT MOST PEOPLE GIVE AWAY PURPLE OES.
EVELYN, HOPE YOU DON'T OVERDO---THE DOCTOR THAT TOLD YOU TO GET THAT APPOINTMENT SHOULD BE ABLE TO WRITE THE REFERRAL FOR YOU.

NANCY, YOU SURE HAD IT HOT UP THERE--GLAD YOUR SIL GOT THE AC IN FOR YOU. MY SON COMES TODAY TO PUT OURS IN--FINALLY GOT IT COOLED OFF LAST NIGHT WITH FANS IN EVERY WINDOW BRINGING IN THE COOLER NIGHT AIR---IT IS RATHER PLEASANT IN HERE THIS MORNING.
DEB, YOU WILL LIKE THE SWIFFER FOR THE FANS.
I REALLY LIKE HOW THE PORCH TURNED OUT---I SPRAY PAINTED THE 2 CHAIRS AND THE WICKER TABLE FOR OUT THERE IN TEAL--THEY TURNED OUT NICELY AND I SPENT SOME TIME OUTSIDE ENJOYING IT LAST NIGHT.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE SUNDAY.

Nancy, Got my Swiffer today and bought the Swiffer for the Fan blades. This should be fun seeing how it works. Glad you A/C is in, since you mentioned about the humidity being high. Also glad to hear you got the last window done.

Went to Kaiser Permanente to see a friend who has Stage 4 Cancer which started near his heart a few months ago. It was inoperable and he's had many treatments that failed to work. We stayed for a short time, but will visit again. This has been a terrible week.

Evelynn, I hope you are OK and you don't have anything serious happening.

Keep saying I can do this!

WE HAVE A DEPARTMENT UP HERE CALLED THE "CLSC" I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO TELL YOU WHAT EACH LETTER STANDS FOR AS IT IS FRENCH,, THAT DEPARTMENT IS MORE OR LESS IN CHARGE OF ALL THE MEDICAL CLINICS,, WELL I WAS IN TOUCH WITH A LADY THERE AND SHE CALLED ME BACK THIS MORNING TO TELL ME SHE HAD SENT A FAX TO MY FAMILY DOCTOR TO FAX A REQUEST TO SEE A HEMATOLOGIST AND MY RESULT S TO THE HOSPITAL, IN CARE OF THE HEMATOLOGY DEPARTMENT.. SO NOW I WAIT,, IN THE MEANTIME I TOLD HER MY DAUGHTER HAD GOTTEN A COPY AND SHE SAID TO HOLD ON TO IT AND BRING IT ALONG TO MY APPOINTMENT. WHEN I HAVE ONE.. THE WHOLE REASON FOR GETTING THE REPORT WAS SO AS THE NEXT DOCTOR WOULD KNOW WHAT TO CHECK,, EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THERE WILL BE MORE BLOOD WORK INVOLVED.. MY RED BLOOD CELLS ARE STICKING TOGETHER MAKING IT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE VERY BIG,, A PROBLEM FOUND IN HEAVY DRINKERS AND I AM NOT ONE,, 1 DRINK A YEAR DOES NOT MEAN I AM A HEAVY DRINKER

DEB. THAT IS THE REASON I WANT TO FIND ONE CLOSER TO HOME, IT IS A 45 MINUTE DRIVE, THEN ABOUT THE SAME TIME TO FIND A PARKING AND END UP INDOOR PARKING AND PAY AN ARM AND A LEG.. ALL THE DOCTORS THINK OF IS GETTING THE MEDICARE CARD PASSED IN THEIR NAME, THIS FAMILY DOCTOR IS FOR THE BIRDS BUT I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE HIM OR GO BACK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST AT THE "CLSC"

VERY HOT AND MUGGY HERE TODAY

TAKE CARE ALL emoticon

Evelynn, Sorry to hear your bleeding. Hope you'll be OK soon.

Lecates, I hear cold crops are best in the winter. Don't you need the bees to pollinate the tomato flowers? I think I'll get a list on what can be grown during winter. Sounds like the yard is looking pretty good. Enjoy sitting back and enjoying the progress of your efforts.

Nancy, I had a feeling you meant Hematologist, but you never know about these Doctors. But really you should be able to go to any doctor or clinic of your choice. Sometimes these doctors don't think of the inconvenience of traveling into the Metro area. Here in Portland, you have issues with parking. You have to pay to park in a garage or a parking lot. I stay pretty much away from Portland, unless its absolutely necessary and there's no other doctor.

JOJO, I like your comments, its fitting. I've lost at least 4 Primary Doctors, due to the new paperwork system. The just wanted to do their job and not have to fiddle with so much paperwork. The don't have the option of having a secretary to help them out. It's frustrating to me, because they were very good at what they did and they would also take the time to listen to you.

Everyone have a Nice Three Day Weekend.

Keep saying I can do this!

DEB, GLAD YOUR PLANTS ARE DOING SO WELL---I THINK DH AND I WILL HAVE TO DISCUSS GETTING ONE AT THE END OF THE SEASON AND SETTING IT UP OUTSIDE MY SPARE ROOM IN THAT CORNER WHERE IT WOULD BE MORE SHELTERED FROM THE WINDS BUT ALSO GET MORE SUNLIGHT THAN OTHER SPACES. I THINK IT WOULD BE FUN TO TRY AND GROW SOME TOMATOES OVER THE WINTER IN THERE.
NANCY, IT'S YOUR INFO AND IF YOU WANT TO SHARE IT, HOW COME HE HAS A SAY IN THAT? HATE WHEN A DOCTOR YOU LIKE MOVES AWAY OR RETIRES---OR MOVES TO A DIFFERENT PRACTICE AND NOT ALLOWED TO TELL YOU WHERE---AFTERALL, IT IS YOUR DECISION WHERE TO GO AND WHO TO SEE.
EVELYN, HOPE THE PILLS HELP WITH THE BLEEDING --SORRY YOU HAVE TO WAIT SO LONG TO SEE THE SPECIALIST---CRAZY! GLAD YOU GOT YOUR PLANTS COVERED---CUTE PICTURE YOU POSTED, TOO.
JOJO, THAT IS FUNNY!
I GOT THE PROJECT I SET FOR MYSELF DONE AT SCHOOL YESTERDAY---NOW THE AREA BEHIND MY DESK IS NEAT AND ORGANIZED---AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, CLEAN! IT WAS TOO HOT TO DO ANYTHING WHEN I GOT HOME---FELT MORE LIKE SUMMER AND WE HAVE NO AC UNITS IN THE WINDOWS YET. DH DID MULCH MY FRONT FLOWER BEDS---THEY ALL LOOK SO NICE---PLUS HE HAD WATERED THEM FOR ME---ALL I NEEDED TO DO LAST NIGHT WAS WATER THE LIVING WALL OF SUCCULENTS THAT I HAD CREATED WITH HENS AND CHICKS---THANKFULLY, THEY DON'T NEED TO BE WATERED THAT OFTEN. TODAY I DO WANT TO GET THE FURNITURE OFF THE PORCH AND PUT IN THE BACKYARD TO BE HOSED OFF---THEN I NEED TO REALLY SWEEP OUT THERE AND THEN HOSE IT DOWN---WAY TOO MUCH POLLEN THIS YEAR---PLUS I DO WANT TO PAINT IT AFTER SCHOOL LETS OUT, AND IT WILL BE EASIER TO WIPE DOWN IF IT IS CLEANED REALLY GOOD RIGHT NOW.
SO GLAD IT IS FRIDAY AND A 3 DAY WEEKEND AHEAD! HAVE A GOOD ONE!

FIRST OF ALL LADIES, I GOOFED IN MY LAST POST WHEN I WROTE DERMATOLOGIST, IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HEMATOLOGIST emoticon
MY DAUGHTER DID GET HER HANDS ON THE LAST SET OF BLOOD WORK RESULTS AND WHATEVER IT WAS THAT THE LAST DOCTOR HAD FAXED OUT,, SHE WILL DROP THE PAPERS OFF TO ME ON SATURDAY. I AM STILL GOING TO TRY TO GET THE ONE FROM MY FAMILY DOCTOR,, IT HAS ONLY BEEN ABOUT A YEAR THAT I HAVE HIM AND I AM NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL. THE ONE I HAD BEFORE I MOVED INTO THE RESIDENCE WAS 2 WEEKS OLDER THAN ME AND I HAD HIM FOR 43 YEARS, NOW HE WAS A FAMILY DOCTOR, I COULD ALWAYS COUNT ON HIM.. NEEDLESS TO SAY HE HAS RETIRED

SECOND WINDOW WENT BETTER THAN THE FIRST AND AT LEAST I COULD GET THE BLIND DOWN AND WASH THAT TOO


WE ARE IN FOR A SCORCHER TOMORROW.. 87 BUT WITH HUMIDITY 98.. THUNDER STORMS ARE A POSSIBILITY AS WELL.. IT IS DRIZZLING RIGHT NOW AND QUITE HUMID

THAT WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY . GET A COPY AND YOU CAN TAKE OR MAIL TO THE OTHER DR.

I GOT TO GO AND SEE A CANCER DR. ON JUNE 9TH. SO THAT MY NEXT STEP. I'M TAKING IT EASY NOW BUT GETTING SOME PILLS TO HELP STOP THE BLEEDING.

WE GOT SOME RAIN AND HAIL TODAY. DH GOT THE GARDEN PLANTS COVER AHEAD OF TIME. SO THEY ARE SAFE.

START BY THE DOING WHAT'S NECESSARY, THEN WHAT'S POSSIBLE, AND SUDDENLY YOU ARE DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Today the clouds are supposed to be moving in, if it doesn't rain I'll have to turn on my sprinklers.
I planted the Red Butterfly Milkweed about 2 weeks ago and it was coming up on its own in the Greenhouse, so I brought the tray in the house to put the UV light and the warming pad on them. The just started to come up yesterday. I also have the Phlox and the Chinese Lanterns coming up also. So far, the ground cover flowers are still doing good in the front of the house. I've never have had such good success until I bought that Greenhouse. I'm amazed!

Nancy, You've been coming up with some beautiful pictures. Thank You!
I'm missing some info on the Doctor's results. You're looking for a Hematologist, closer to where you live, but your Family Doctor won't send information to a hospital that has a Dermatologist? Does it matter there's a Dermatologist at the hospital? Oh well, hopefully you'll get someone closer. Hope your second window is not as much of a battle like the first window.

Lecates, It will be nice when school is over for you. You'll be able to get out and enjoy your yard and relaxation. Sounds like the weather has been more Pleasant and Sunny.

Keep saying I can do this!

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE
STARTING OUT TO BE ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE .. THINK I WILL ATTEMPT THE SECOND WINDOW IN THE BACK ROOM. MIGHT AT LEAST HAVE BETTER LUCK IN GETTING THE BLIND DOWN
I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIND A HEMATOLOGIST CLOSER TO HOME INSTEAD OF GOING WAY DOWN TOWN MONTREAL.. APPARENTLY THE RESULTS OF MY LAST VISIT WERE FAXED TO 2 DOCTORS AND WHY THEM I DON'T KNOW.. THE DOCTOR WHO HAD ORIGINALLY REQUESTED THE CONSULT DID NOT RECEIVE THEM AND THE FAMILY DOCTOR DID,, FAMILY DOCTOR REFUSES TO SEND THEM TO A MEDICAL CENTER WHERE THERE IS A DERMATOLOGIST (i EVEN HAD THE NAME OF A NEW ONE) FAMILY DR SAYS I CANNOT SEND THIS TO SOMEONE YOU HAVE NOT SEEN, IT IS NOT ETHICAL,, HE WANTS A FAX SENT TO HIM TELLING HIM TO FAX THE RESULTS TO THE OTHER MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.. FED UP IS NOT THE WORD..WOULD IT NOT BE EASY JUST TO DO WHAT I ASK??

GOING OUT WITH KIRBY ,, THEN MIGHT GET ANSWERS AS THE SECRETARY AT THE MEDICAL CENTER IS GOING TO CALL MY FAMILY DR.

HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE emoticon

NANCY, THAT IS AN ADORABLE PICTURE--MADE ME SMILE. YES, I OVERDID IT WITH ALL THOSE FLOWERS---BUT IN A MONTH, THEY WILL LOOK GLORIOUS.
WE KEEP PUTTING THE VINES THAT GROW OVER OUR NEIGHBOR'S FENCE BACK OVER THE SIDE OF IT---WE DON'T WANT THE INVASIVE DARN THINGS---BUT SOME CREEP THRU AND WE CUT THEM OFF AND TEAR OUT THE ROOTS IF WE CAN. WE ALSO TRIM A BUSH IN THE BACKYARD THAT THEY DON'T TAKE CARE OF AND TOLD DH TO GO AHEAD AND TRIM THEIR BUSHES ON THE SIDE OF OUR DRIVEWAY AS THEY DON'T TAKE CARE OF THEM---THEY ARE RENTERS.

Nancy, I used to have a grape vine, but one winter was too cold and it froze. I new a lady that was from Turkey, she made Stuffed Grape Leaves, which is very delicious. My turtles like the leaves also, so when I trimmed the vines I gave them to the turtles.
Lecates, The turtles like the new tender shoots of the grass and the clover, so they do prefer the grass cut. I have a list of vegetables and fruits they like to eat, since they're vegetarian. Although they will eat worms and other bugs.
JOJO, Most neighbors don't mind if you trim their plants on your side. My daughter had a neighbor that has a tree that covers part of the roof of her house. Whether the neighbor minded if the tree was trimmed it was necessary. The tree is huge, so she was concerned that the limb may someday break. Her husband trimmed it back a little away from the house.

Trimmed some of the lettuce in the garden to make some Shrimp Salad for Dinner.

Have a great day everyone, and take it easier Lecates. I imagine your sore and a little stiff, but that should clear up as you move around.

A PLESANT COOLER START TO THE DAY, YESTERDAY IT WAS 84 BUT AT LEAST IT WAS NOT HUMID, WE MAY GET THUNDER STORMS THIS AFTERNOON THEN BACK TO SUN FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK
I HAD A NEIGHBOR THAT HAD A BLUE GRAPE VINE ALONG THE FENCE, HE WAS GREEK AND ALL THEY WOULD WANT WERE THE LEAVES, HE NEVER TRIMMED THE VINE EITHER, A MESS IS NOT THE WORD SO I WOULD REALLY TRIM ALL THAT WAS HANGING ON MY SIDE AS I HAD A RAISED FLOWER BED ALONG THAT SIDE OF THE YARD. HE NEVER SAID ANYTHING AND AT TIMES MY DAUGHTER WOULD TAKE THE CLIPPER TO IT, I USED THE GRAPES ONE YEAR TO MAKE JELLY BUT HAD TO USE WAY TOO MUCH SUGAR SO NEVER USED THEM AGAIN. THE SIDING OF MY HOUSE WAS WHITE SO WHEN THE BIRDS TOOK OFF WITH CLUSTERS OF GRAPES AND DECIDED TO DROP THEM, WELL YOU KNOW WHAT THE BACK OF THE HOUSE WAS LIKE

LECATES I WONDER WHY YOU WERE SORE emoticon

DEB, GUESS YOUR ANKLE AND KNEE ARE DOING BETTER emoticon WTG!

JOJO AND EVELYN, HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY

WELL OFF TO WALK KIRBY, TAKE CARE ALL

LORI, HOPE IT BRINGS YOU SOME GOOD LUCK---DON'T TRY TO PLANT ANYTHING WHERE YOU PUT DOWN THE GRASS AND WEED KILLER FOR A WHILE-----BEST SOLUTION FOR THAT AREA IS TO DIG UP THE STUFF, PUT DOWN GROUND COVER, AND PUT IN A RAISED BED WITH THE GROUND COVER AS YOUR BASE. iF YOU WANT TO PLANT BESIDE A BUILDING AND NOT PUT IN A RAISED AREA, THEN THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO LAY DOWN A TARP OR SOME PLASTIC IN THAT AREA WITH SOMETHING HEAVY ON IT FOR A MONTH TO KILL OFF THE WEEDS/GRASS, THEN DIG IT UP TO PLANT WHAT YOU WANT.
DEB, BET THE TURTLES WERE GLAD YOU CUT THE GRASS.
NANCY, THOUGHT YOU WERE CLEANING THE WINDOWS, NOT YOURSELF---LOL
JOJO---THINK MY NEIGHBORS ARE DOING THAT IN THEIR BACK YARD---WE KEEP PART OF IT CUT JUST BECAUSE WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP THEIR WEEDS OFF OUR PROPERTY. YOU ARE TOO FUNNY!
EVELYN, ANY NEWS ON SURGERY FOR YOU OR TREATMENT?
LOL, THE VINCA HAVE BEEN LIVING ON THE DECK IN THE DELUGE OF RAIN. BUT NOW ARE PLANTED---LOST ABOUT HALF A DOZEN FROM BEING IN THE POTS TOO LONG SO I HAD TO GET THEM IN THE GROUND. THE FLOWER BEDS LOOK SO MUCH BETTER WITH PLANTS IN THEM. BUT BOY, DID I PAY FOR PLANTING OVER 70 PLANTS---KNEE ACTED UP AND BACK OF LEGS HURT LIKE CRAZY---THEN LAST NIGHT I HAD A LEG CRAMP IN EACH LEG AT DIFFERENT TIMES. i DEFINITELY NEED THE POOL TO WORK THE KINKS OUT TONIGHT.
TODAY IS MY LAST FULL DAY WITH MY STUDENT--HURRAY! I WISH THAT HE REALLY WAS READY FOR THE REAL WORLD, BUT NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT THAT WITH MOM BABYING HIM ALL THE TIME.
HAVE A GOOD WEDNESDAY.

SPLORI, I used to belong to a TOPS group. We used to also do some crafts during our meetings. I did pretty good at losing weight, I was 205 and got down to 163, but gained 10. I've stayed at the same spot since then.
I hat to use chemicals on weeds, but sometimes its like going to war.

I mowed the lawn where the turtles are, since it's been 2 weeks since the last time I did it. The grass was just getting too high and it will be raining again, starting tomorrow.

Evelnn, I did another 30 minutes on the bike, I'm really determined to get this weight off.

Keep saying I can do this!

JUST DO WHAT I DO: STICK UP A SIGN THAT SAYS 'EXPERIMENTAL WEED FARM' AND GO WITH IT. THAT WAY YOUR LAWN DOESN'T NEED TO BE MOWED OR TRIMMED, NOR DO YOU NEED TO PLANT THINGS TO ADD CHARACTER. THAT'S WHAT THE THISTLE IS FOR.

Sunny in my neck of the woods, trying to reclaim area next to the garage. I sprayed weed and grass killer all over the area. Found 4 leaf clover. I guess that I will have good luck.

Today and tomorrow will be partly cloudy, then back to rain even for the weekend.

JOJO, My Chiro luckily only cost $50, compared to others that charge $200. The insurance has changed on covering the Chiropractor. I have to meet my $1500 deductible and then they'll pay the Chiropractor. I'd have to get real sick or have surgery to get to my deductible.

Nancy, At least you accomplished a lot, that needed to be done. When I think a job is only going to take 15 minutes to a 1/2 hour, it usually takes almost all day, because I never expect the unexpected.

Lecates, It will be a good day for you to finally get your Vinca out of the car. The car must have been like a greenhouse to stay alive.

Enjoy your nice sunny day!

Keep saying I can do this!

GRANDMA JOJO, You are so funny in your comments. I get a real kick out of it.

Evelynn, I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike. I put on some records, one was Toni Bennett and the other was Frank Sinatra. It was easy for me to keep going on the bike.

Nancy, I'll need to get those pads for cleaning my window. I remember using Bon ami, its been a while.

Feeling real good after the Chiropractor took care of my back. I'm almost back to normal. That one thing about Doctors, they still don't think Chiropractors are any good.

Keep saying I can do this!

I ASKED ON FRIDAY IF HE THOUGHT HE WOULD HAVE TIME TO DO THE OUTSIDE OF THE WINDOWS ON SATURDAY AND THE ANSWER WAS " I DON'T KNOW" I WILL NOT ASK AGAIN, TOMORROW I AM GOING TO WASH THE MINI BLINDS,, CURTAINS AND THE INSIDE OF THE WINDOWS,, AT LEAST THE INSIDE WILL BE CLEAN.. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH ANY OF THE INSIDE ONES BUT THE 2 ROOMS IN THE BACK (OUTSIDE) FORGET IT

I HAD A WINDOW CLEANER THAT WORKED GREAT, IT WAS A PAD WITH A EXTENDABLE HANDLE,,WET THE WINDOW, RUB THIS PAD OVER IT WHICH WAS SOAPY AND THEN RINSE WITH THE HOSE,,NO NEED TO DRY EITHER, IT WORKED GREAT BUT WHEN I SOLD THE HOUSE IT WAS GIVEN AWAY LIKE A LOT OF OTHER THINGS,, THEY STILL SELL THEM AND RATHER THAN ASK TO BORROW MINE I MAY JUST BUY ANOTHER,, MY SISTER USES HERS INSIDE TOO BY JUST WETTING THE WINDOW WITH A SQUIRT BOTTLE, RUBBING PAD THEN SQUIRTS AGAIN AND USES A CLOTH TO DRY OFF THE WORST OF IT , SHE SAYS IT WORKS FINE BUT WE REALLY DO HAVE TO BE ABLE TO REACH WINDOWS, MYSELF I LIKE THE BON AMI FOAM

DEB I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT WOULD WORK

Looks like Rain for the whole week and weekend. I suppose that will give me some rest, but the weeds are getting ahead of me, which happens every year. The vegetables are starting to show up and the corn is now about a foot high. I have a great crop of romaine lettuce, which has done better, ever in my entire life. The cucumbers are on their way, so a nice hot day should pump those up. My peaches are about 1/3 the size and are starting to weigh the limbs down, which I'll have to support soon.

I hope most of you are seeing good results in your garden. For those that are in the colder climate, I'm sure you'll catch up soon.

Nancy, I had cleaned the windows before the roofers came, but they are dirty again. Looks like I have to do it one more time. This time I'll take the screens off and clean them also. Seems the composition tiles have loose material particles that the rain is washing down .

You know, I have a garden window that is hard to reach, so what I used was my mop. It has a sponge bottom, but It worked pretty well. Normally I have to climb over the sink on my knees to clean it, but it seemed to work pretty well for a quick job. I wonder, if you used the Swiffer pads and Windex, would that work. It may not get all the nooks and crannies, but it could clean 90% of it.

Some of you may have better ideas that will work, I'd like to hear them since I have a hard time with my garden window.

Keep saying I can do this!

JOJO, HAVING MY LAWN TORN UP WAS A PAIN --LIKE YOU SAID---AT LEAST MINE SMOOTHED OURS BACK OUT SO ALL WE HAD TO DO WAS PLANT THE SEEDS AND GET NEW STONES---I WILL SAY THAT PORTION OF THE LAWN LOOKS A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN THE REST OF THE LAWN---LOL
DEB, GLAD YOU CAN GO BACK TO WORK---BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERDO---GOOD LUCK WITH THE JOE PYE SEEDS.
NANCY, I JUST LIVE WITH THE DIRTY WINDOWS--HATE TO ASK THE BOYS TO TAKE DOWN THE STORM WINDOWS AND CLEAN THE OTHER SIDES OF THEM FOR ME--SO I DON'T ASK---HMMM, WONDER IF MY NICE NEIGHBOR WOULD DO THAT FOR PAY---HE PROBABLY WOULD---HE IS GREAT!
HOPE---HOPE THINGS ARE GOING GOOD IN YOUR GARDENS
NANCY, THAT WAS A NICE PICTURE YOU POSTED.
WOKE UP WITH A KILLER HEADACHE AT 4 THIS MORNING---STILL LURKING BEHIND THE EYES SO I NEED TO TAKE MORE MEDS SHORTLY. NO STUDENT UNTIL 11 AS MORE STATE TESTING BEING DONE TODAY---AND WE WON'T DO MUCH ANYHOW SINCE THIS IS HIS LAST WEEK.

MY COMPUTER DECIDED TO FREEZE BEFORE,, GRRRRRR
IT IS BEAUTIFUL HERE AGAIN TODAY BUT IT IS A LITTLE COOLER THAN THE START OF THE DAY YESTERDAY, HOWEVER IT IS WARMING UP

I GOT THE VACUUM PASSED AS WELL AS WHATEVER WINDOWS I COULD DO ALONE..I HATE ASKING SO THE WINDOWS IN THE 2 BACK ROOMS MAY REMAIN DIRTY, I AM GOING TO END UP FINDING AND PAYING SOMEONE TO DO THEM,, THEN MY SON IN LAW AND DAUGHTER WILL BE UPSET CAUSE I DIDN'T WAIT.. I REALIZE THEY HAVE THEIR OWN THINGS TO DO BUT TO HAVE TO WAIT A YEAR IS A BIT TOO LONG FOR ME.

KIRBY IS SITTING ON THE ARM OF THE CHAIR LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW SO I GUESS THAT MEANS HE WANTS TO GO OUT

WOW, THAT'S NICE THAT YOUR SON IN LAW DID THAT FOR YOU. NOT HAVING TO WAIT IS A GOOD THING WHEN IT COMES TO PLUMBING, TRUST ME.
I DON'T MIND AN UNTIDY LAWN, BUT ONE WITH TIRE RUTS AND BARE SPOTS BOTHERS ME.

Evelynn, Your right about the other horse, I couldn't remember what the other one died from.

I went out to clip some lettuce and cilantro from my garden for the Taco's, for tonight's dinner, and I ended up doing some weeding. With all the rain, everything is growing real fast. I also planted the Joe Pye seeds inside the house with the UV and warming pads. It started to rain real hard so I had to quit, which was a good idea, since I'm going back to work tomorrow. My back is 95% recovered.

JOJO, I take pride when the lawn looks really good after so many years of trying to get a lawn to fill in, and it kills me when it takes a few days or less to have the lawn murdered by others that only see it as no big deal. I realize there is a necessity to having work done, but if there could have been some way to avoid too much destruction.

Keep saying I can do this!

WELL, SADLY, WHAT I DID PULL DIDN'T MAKE THE LAWN LOOK ANY BETTER. WE'RE GOING TO PUT GRASS SEED DOWN OUT IN THE SIDE YARD WHERE ALL THE PLUMBING TRUCKS WERE. DID THEY EVER RIP UP THE LAWN! HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING FUM TODAY.

JOJO, You're correct! Both horses broke their legs and had to be euthenized. Exaggerator won the race, which I chose at first, but the commentators said Nyquist had a good chance. Oh well, good thing I didn't put a real bet on the horse.

Keep saying I can do this!

Coming back from Eastern Oregon, we had snow for about 75 miles, Luckily the rest of the way we had rain. Glad to be home! Watching the Preakness Horse Race. I'm for Nyquist winning the race, although Exaggerator looks like a strong looking horse.
