FEELING OK TODAY, I ONLY ASKED MY DAUGHTER TO TAKE KIRBY CAUSE EVERY TIME I TRIED TO MOVE HE WAS UNDERFOOT AND WHEN I WAS IN WASHROOM I KEPT SCOLDING HIM AND TELLING HIM TO GET OUT. I DON'T LIKE SCOLDING HIM AS HE IS ALWAYS BY ME NO MATTER WHAT, BUT TUESDAY WAS NOT A GOOD TIME TO BE UNDERFOOT,, I HAVE HIM BACK AS MY DAUGHTER WAS GOING CAMPING. I TOOK HIM OUT LAST EVENING AND WILL AGAIN SHORTLY.. DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS MY NORMAL FOOD OR A BUG I PICKED UP..JUST THANKFUL IT DIDN'T LAST LONG

HAVE A GOOD DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE.. TEMPS HERE ARE NOT TOO BAD..70 GOING TO 80 WITH LITTLE HUMIDITY emoticon

NANCY, HOPE YOU ARE FEELING BETTER---GOOD IDEA TO GET YOUR DD TO WATCH THE DOG UNTIL YOU FEEL A LOT BETTER. WONDER IF IT WAS SOMETHING YOU ATE OR IF YOU PICKED UP A STOMACH BUG FROM YOUR CASINO OUTING.
JOJO---TOO FUNNY!
EV--YOU CAN ALWAYS DO A GIBBS SMACK TO YOUR DH---NOW WOULDN'T THAT BE FUN?
WE NEED TO MOW THE LAWN TODAY---i MIGHT DO THE FRONT MYSELF AND MAKE DH USE THE WEED WHACKER---LOL

EVELYN, GLAD YOUR DH FELT BETTER---BUT ASK YOUR KIDS FOR HELP IF YOU NEED IT---THEY CAN GIVE YOU AN HOUR OR 2 OR THEIR TIME IF YOU REALLY NEED IT.
THEY SAID WE GOT 5 INCHES OF RAIN YESTERDAY---I CAN BELIEVE IT AS THERE WAS FLOODING OUTSIDE OUR BACK DOOR---BUT THE NEW PATIO, WHERE WE SLANTED IT SLIGHTLY TOWARDS THE FLOWER BEDS, SHOWED NO SIGN OF ANY PUDDLING ON THE BRICKS. AT LEAST WE WON'T HAVE TO WATER ANYTHING FOR A WHILE---AND MORE RAIN OFF AND ON OVER THE NEXT 5 DAYS SO THAT IS NICE FOR ALL MY PLANTS.
HAVE A GOOD WEDNESDAY.

ANY GAIN IS A PLUS WHEN MONEY IS INVOLVED. GLAD YOU HAD A GOOD TIME CATCHING UP WITH THE OTHER RESIDENTS THERE--WHEN IT IS THAT HOT, NO WONDER IT KEEPS ON GOING AND GOING. BUT THE SMALLER ONE WOULD HELP COOL OFF THE OTHER ROOMS SOME.
ONLY THING LEFT IN THE KITCHEN IS THE FLOOR --AND WITH ALL THE RAIN--FIGURE i BEST WAIT TO WASH IT SO THAT NO ONE COMES IN WITH MUDDY FEET ON MY CLEAN FLOORS---LOL---GUESS i WILL START ON THE DINING ROOM TODAY.

I DIDN'T POST WHEN I CAME ON LAST EVENING,, BUT I READ WHAT WAS POSTED, THEN TOOK A SHOWER AND WENT TO BED..I CAME HOME RICHER THAN WHEN I LEFT,, NOT BUT ENOUGH TO WRITE HOME ABOUT BUT A 37 DOLLAR GAIN IS BETTER THAN A LOSS,, HAD A GREAT DAY CATCHING UP WITH ALL THE RESIDENCES.

I DO HAVE FANS IN THE OTHER ROOMS THEY HELP A BIT .. I KNOW MY DAUGHTER HAS 2 SMALL AC CAUSE SHE HAS HAD A HEAT PUMP/ AC INSTALLED, I DID MENTION THAT MAYBE ONE COULD GO IN THE COMPUTER ROOM AND THAT WOULD BLOW INTO MY BEDROOM, SHE SAID YES ,I WILL MENTION IT AGAIN ,, BUT WE ALL KNOW THE WAITING TIME INVOLVED WHEN WE ASK FOR ANYTHING..THE ONE I HAVE IS A GOOD ONE BUT IT NEVER STOPS

IT IS GOING TO BE A BUGGER AGAIN TODAY, WITH HUMIDITY GOING TO ABOUT 93

TAKE CARE ALL AND ENJOY YOUR DAY

EVELYN, GETTING UP AND MOVING IS GOOD FOR YOU TO DO, BUT NO CLEANING, ETC---ASK YOUR KIDS FOR HELP IF DH CAN'T---AFTER ALL YOU DO FOR THEM IN WATCHING THE KIDS, IT'S THE LEAST THEY CAN DO--I KNOW HOW PAINFUL GOUT IS SO KNOW YOUR DH IS IN PAIN, TOO.
HOPE NANCY DID NOT LOSE HER SHIRT AT THE CASINO---LOL
BOY, DID I ENJOY THOSE FRIES YESTERDAY IN OC---SO YUMMY.
RAIN TODAY---NICE FOR THE PLANTS!

JOJO, YES, PEOPLE STILL GET GOUT, IT IS FROM EATING TOO MUCH OF STUFF THAT THE BODY DOESN'T HANDLE WELL---NOT EVERYONE GETS IT FROM THE SAME THING--FOR MY MOM, EATING TOO MUCH HAM OR OTHER PROCESSED MEATS WILL CAUSE A BIG FLARE UP OF IT---HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH URETHA STAYING IN THE BLOOD, THE LIVER OR KIDNEY NOT ABLE TO FILTER IT ALL OUT--I THINK THAT IS THE CORRECT TERM. MY MOM GOT A HUGE FLARE UP AFTER HAVING BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS---3 PINTS---THAT CAN BE A SIDE EFFECT TO HAVING TO HAVE THAT.
EVELYN, YOU TELL YOUR DH THAT EVERYONE FARTS---AND IN YOUR OWN HOUSE AND AFTER SURGERY, YOU DO NEED TO GET THAT GAS OUT SOMEHOW. DON'T LET DH USE THAT GOUT AS AN EXCUSE NOT TO HELP YOU AND DON'T YOU DARE DO STUFF YOU SHOULD NOT DO. ONE OF THE SIDE EFFECTS OF MENOPAUSE THAT THEY DON'T TALK MUCH ABOUT IS FARTING---I HAVE A BIG ISSUE WITH GAS AT TIMES--IT CAN BE EMBARASSING AS I CANNOT CONTROL IT AT TIMES.
NANCY, ENJOY THE CASINO--HOPE YOU WIN! I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT AN AC HEADACHE---WHEN THAT HAPPENS YOU NEED TO GO IN A ROOM WITH OUT THE AC IN IT. DO YOU HAVE A BOX FAN TO PUT IN THE DOORWAY OF THE BACK ROOMS SO THAT THE AC CAN BE PULLED INTO THOSE ROOMS? MAYBE A SMALL ONE FOR THE OTHER ROOMS. WE GOT ONE OF THOSE PORTABLE ONES THAT YOU PUT A HOSE TO THE WINDOW---I DO FIND IT QUIETER THAN THE WINDOW UNIT WAS.
WE ARE PLANNING ON GOING TO OC TODAY FOR FRIES---NOT SURE IF WE WILL GET A COUPLE OF OTHER TREATS WHILE THERE---LOL
HAVE A GOOD MONDAY!

NANCY, THANKS FOR THE INFO ABOUT THE VIDEO--I WILL HAVE TO TRY AND FIND IT---MY TOMATOES PROBABLY NEED SOME AIR IN THERE.
EV--GLAD YOU ARE HOME AND DOING OKAY---DON'T RUN DH OUT OF THE HOUSE WITH THE GAS---LOL---BUT BETTER TO GET IT OUTSIDE THAN INSIDE MAKING YOU HURT.
LOVELY MORNING---TURNED OFF THE AC AND ENJOYING SOME FRESH AIR---BUT DH WASN'T HAPPY ABOUT THAT ---BUT THE HOUSE IS COOLER RIGHT NOW THAN WHEN AC WAS ON---I WOULD HAVE TURNED IT OFF YESTERDAY BUT HE WOULD HAVE HAD A FIT---I ACTUALLY WENT OUT ON THE PORCH AND ENJOYED THE FRESH AIR.
HAVE A GOOD SUNDAY!

NANCY, I DID READ AN ARTICLE ABOUT DOING THAT--NOT SURE IF IT MAKES THEM RIPEN QUICKER THOUGH---OURS ARE SUPER HIGH AND HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT TRIMMING BUT HATE TO CUT OFF WHERE THERE ARE LITTLE FLOWERS AND FUTURE TOMATOES---WE HAD TO BUY WOODEN TRELLIS TO PUT AT EACH END OF OUR RAISED BED AND THEN DH RAN TWINE BACK AND FORTH ON THE SIDE TO HELP SUPPORT OURS, THEY ARE THAT TALL---IF I TRIM I WILL HAVE TO GET A LADDER--LOL---I DON'T THINK IT WILL HURT THE PLANT IF YOU DO, BUT MAKES ME WONDER IF IT WILL HURT THE YIELD.
JIN AND DEB--THANKS!
JIN, LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT IDEAS, ETC. I STARTED DECLUTTERING MANY YEARS BACK---STILL HAVE TO WORK ON IT---LOL---BUT GOT RID OF A LOT OF STUFF EVEN BEFORE WE HAD TO MOVE---AND MOVING REALLY HELPED MOTIVATE GETTING RID OF STUFF.
DEB, ENJOY THE "HAM" STUFF THIS WEEKEND AND THE QUIET WITH OUT GRANDS
WORKING ON THE KITCHEN---STILL!---BUT WE WENT OUT SHOPPING AND OVER TO A FRIEND'S HOUSE TO GET HER KEYS, I WILL BE TAKING CARE OF HER PLANTS WHEN SHE IS GONE FOR 2 WEEKS. THEN MY MOM STOPPED BY FOR A WHILE. HOPE TO FINISH UP ANOTHER SIDE TODAY---SHOULD BE FINISHED IN THE KITCHEN BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK--HAVE TO CLEAN THE OUTSIDE OF THE CABINETS AND DO THE WOOD TREATMENT OF THEM---THEY ALWAYS LOOK SO NICE AND SHINY AFTER THEY ARE FINISHED.
HAVE A GOOD SATURDAY!

I SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING CAPS FOR A LONG TIME, BUT I DIDN'T GET THE HINT. SORRY NANCY THIS SHOULD HELP YOU.

LECATES, TODAY I'M LEAVING TO GO CAMPING, BUT MAINLY I'LL BE ATTENDING "FIELD DAY" WITH THE HAM GROUP. IT SHOULD BE FUN AND QUIET WITHOUT THE GRANDKIDS.

NANCY, I'VE HEARD OF TRIMMING THE TOPS FROM MY DAUGHTER, AND SHE SAYS IT WORKS TO GET THE FRUIT TO MATURE FASTER. I HAVEN'T TRIED IT, SO WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT LECATES THINKS.

HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE SUNNY WHERE YOU ARE, SINCE WE SHOULD HAVE TEMPS IN THE LOWER 80'S.

Keep saying I can do this!

THANK YOU FOR EXPLAINING CAPS. I AM EVEN AT THE POINT OF TRYING TO GET A MAGNIFYING SCREEN SO AS I CAN KEEP UP WITH ALL.

YOU'RE RIGHT,, KIRBY SPENT THE TIME BESIDE ME ON THE COUCH SHAKING. THANK GOODNESS THEY DON'T LAST TOO LONG.. IT IS NICE AND SUNNY TODAY AND IT SEEMS TO BE A BIT WARMER, AT LEAST MY TOES ARE STILL WARM

DID GET TO WALMART LAST EVENING WITH MY GRAND DAUGHTER,, RETURNED DRAPES AND OF COURSE SPENT MORE MONEY.. OH WELL WE CAN'T TAKE IT WITH US NOW CAN WE?

GOING OUT WITH KIRBY THEN HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT MY TOMATO PLANTS TOO., I THINK THEY ARE TRYING TO REACH THE MAN UPSTAIRS,, THEY ARE SO TALL AND A LOT OF TOMATOES ON THEM, I HAVE TIED THEY TO THE TOMATO CAGES AND ALSO TO THE WROUGHT IRON RAILING DUE TO THE WIND.. SOMEONE TOLD ME ONCE TO CUT THE TOPS SO AS THEY WOULD NOT GROW ANY HIGHER,, ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS?? I DON'T WANT TO KILL THE PLANTS

JIN, NANCY HAS VERY BAD EYESIGHT, AND EVEN ENLARGING IT DOES NOT MAKE IT EASY FOR HER TO READ WHEN IN LOWER CASE, BUT SHE CAN READ UPPER CASE MUCH EASIER, SO WE DO IT THIS WAY---WE ARE NOT SHOUTING---AND REALLY HATE THAT NOTION ANYHOW---IF I AM MAD, I DEFINITELY WOULD SAY SO AND NOT HAVE TO POST IN CAPITALS FOR PEOPLE TO KNOW---LOL BUT YOU MAY POST ANY WAY YOU LIKE IF IT BOTHERS YOU TO POST THAT WAY. SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED TO JOIN IN ON THE CLUTTTER TEAM THAT I AM ON---SOME GREAT IDEAS ON THERE IS YOU READ SOME BACK POSTS. BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART IS THE LETTING GO OF STUFF---YOU WILL MAKE NO HEADWAY IF YOU DON'T . GLAD YOUR GARDENS GIVE YOU JOY AND PEACE!
NANCY, BET THE DOG HATES THE FIREWORKS!
EVELYN, YOU MAKE SURE YOU MAKE USE OF YOUR SLAVE THOSE 2 WEEKS---LOL

Can I ask why everyone types in capital letters? It looks like everyone is shouting!!

Anyways with the rain keeping out of my garden I have been decluttering my bedroom - this has been my on-going project for the past 20 years or more!! I did start doing some serious clean up on Monday and now I can see the top of my dresser. And most amazing, it still looks neat and tidy these past four days too. I have requested a book from the library called "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" by Marie Kondo and I am hoping that once that comes in it will inspire me to continue on. One of my biggest things is that I just seem to move the clutter from spot to spot and don't actually get rid of anything. But this is my summer to really get down to business - all this clutter is draining the joy out of me. I am thankful though that my garden gives me joy, weeds and all!

Nancy, Reading a little bit about St. Jean Baptiste, its kind of like our 4th of July. There should be a lot of celebrating and parades on this day. You don't sound merry! Just kidding!

Lecates, I'm glad you have it done, it must be very nice.

JOJO, I like what you said, that they found your Heart still working fine. I hope the doctors know who they're working on and don't mistake you for someone else. Make sure you have them check your name and what the problem is, that you came in for.

Evelyn, Good luck tomorrow, also. Get some rest while your in there being worked on. It doesn't sound like its going to be easy when you get out, so I'd hold on the kids and get better first. Kids never let you rest, even if their cute.

Expect some rain today and tomorrow, but the weekend should be probably humid with an 83 degree temp.

Keep saying I can do this!

Lecates, Correction, it was the Tulips.
The next few weeks will be busy, I have camping for this weekend and next weekend is my daughter's Baby Shower. Then, who knows when she'll deliver. This is her first, so its exciting.

The turtle laid an egg yesterday, so I have that in an incubator. Normally she buries the eggs, and this one was in their house. Don't know if will hatch, but I won't know till October. She should be laying more in July. but normally about 6 eggs, she will bury in the ground.

Its good that mostly everybody's surgery is being done early in the summer. At least you'll be able to enjoy the rest of the summer, hoping everyone recovers quickly. I hope everyone is going to be OK and that it's not serious.

Have a beautiful Summery day!



Keep saying I can do this!

DEB, NEVER HEARD OF SQUIRRELS EATING DAFFODIL BULBS---ACTUALLY, NOTHING SEEMS TO LIKE THEM---THEY ARE THE ONE BULB YOU CAN PLANT AND NOT WORRY ABOUT. THEY DO LOVE TULIP BULBS AND I USE RED PEPPER WHEN I PLANT SO DON'T LOSE ANY---MAYBE YOU NEED TO USE THE RED PEPPER ON THE DAFFODILS. YOUR DD HAS NOT HAD ANY LUCK WITH THAT BREED--SAD TO SAY---GUESS YOU WILL BE VERY CAREFUL WITH BULBS AFTER THIS EVENT--WE HAVE ALL LEARNED FROM THIS EVENT.
EVELYN, TOTALLY UNDERSTANDABLE---HOPE THINGS GO SMOOTHLY AND NOT TOO MANY ADDITIONAL TREATMENTS
NANCY, GLAD YOU GOT A NICE BREAKFAST OUT AFTERWARDS AND NICER WEATHER TO TOP IT OFF.
HAD A MAJOR THUNDERSTORM CAME THRU LAST NIGHT AND GIVE US SOME MUCH NEEDED RAIN---PLANTS ARE HAPPY!
JUST UNLOADED MY FREEZER AND I AM DEFROSTING IT---THAT IS THE START OF MY KITCHEN CLEANING FOR THIS YEAR---DH IS OUTSIDE WORKING ON THE PROJECT RIGHT NOW--SO I WILL GO IN AND OUT TO SUPERVISE---LOL

JOJO, Neither did I. Two years ago, many dogs were poisoned by Snairol. Snairol had changed there ingredients and a few dog ate the pellets. My daughter had another Miniature Schnauzer that was poisoned from that. My daughter has decided not to buy another Schnauzer.

Lecates, I feel so guilty for not picking up the bulbs. I couldn't think straight yesterday. The most poisonous Crocus, is the Autumn Crocus, which only blooms in the Autumn. These bloomed in the spring, but look just like the Autumn Crocus with lavender flowers.

I can't believe the parents not cleaning up the yard for the kids. One of the parents has the chickens running around the yard and there is poop over the entire area. The kid says you can't even walk out into the back. She's the one that has been picking my leaves and flowers, who I lectured to. I can't see why people buy a home, if they don't plan to keep up the yard.

Keep saying I can do this!

All last week my grandkids were bringing their friends to our house to jump on the trampoline. but Sunday I had put my foot down that I wanted the day to be peaceful and everyone could stay home celebrating Fathers Day. I just couldn't take it, I told them that my backyard wasn't a Park. These kids have parents that don't work in their backyard, so they don't have an appreciation of a nice yard. I had one little girl that was ripping off the leaves off of my trees, I had happened to catch her in action. I gave a lecture on how I we don't go to someone's house and tear up the flowers and pull the leaves off the trees and plants.

Finally some very bad news, my daughter's Miniature Schnauzer had died this morning. She was caught eating a Crocus bulb and they had got it out of her, but the poison had already done its damage. The Vet couldn't save her.
My daughter and I had dug the bulbs up where I was taking all the roots out of the ground. I had put the bulbs in a pile, but the dog had picked out the Crocus bulb out of the pile. The dog just turned 1 year yesterday. She has another dog, and the other one has never taken any interest to eating plants or anything else in the yard. I wish we could have known about that particular Crocus.

Keep saying I can do this!

TINA, GLAD YOU GOT THAT DRIP LINE IN WHEN YOU DID---WITH TEMPS THAT HIGH, YOUR POOR PLANTS WOULD HAVE HAD A HARD TIME. I AM SURE DEALING WITH YOUR MOM'S DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS AND WORRYING ABOUT HER HAS MADE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR YOU AND THUS LEADING TO THE WRONG EATING PATTERN. MY DH WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SUGAR LAST SUMMER AND I SPENT THE WHOLE SUMMER GETTING HIS UNDER CONTROL---NOW HIS A1C NUMBERS ARE GREAT AND BELOW THE DIAGNOSIS---BUT WE MONITOR IT CLOSELY AND PLAN TO KEEP IT THAT WAY---SEND ME A SPARK MAIL IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT WE DID.
NANCY, YES, BEST TO WAIT FOR THE PAPERS AND THEN FIND OUT WHEN IT WILL SUIT GD-HOPEFULLY BEFORE YOU GO TO THE HEMATOLOGIST.. WE HAVE HOT WEATHER BACK HERE, TOO--I DID ENJOY LAST WEEK'S TEMPS THOUGH. HOPING MY FRIEND WILL POST THE PICTURES ON MY PAGE FOR ME SOMETIME TODAY---SHE DID POST THEM ON THE EMPTY NESTER TEAM IS YOU WANT TO GO THERE---DH GOT A GOOD PORTION DONE--NOW THE TRICKY AREA TO WORK ON---HIS BACK WAS HURTING THIS MORNING SO i TOLD HIM IF HE NEEDS TO, TO TAKE A COUPLE DAYS OFF FROM WORKING ON IT---IT'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE---LOL
JOJO, DO WHAT FEELS COMFORTABLE TO YOU--BUT DON'T HIBERNATE TOO MUCH---YOU DO NEED TO INTERACT WITH OTHERS, NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS.
HOUSE CLEANING ON THE AGENDA THIS WEEK---STARTING ON THE WASHER/DRYER AREA AND THEN THE KITCHEN---THAT IS THE PLAN FOR THIS WEEK---THE KITCHEN ALWAYS TAKES THE LONGEST AS I WILL WASH THE CABINETS AND TREAT THEM, ETC.
HAVE A GOOD MONDAY!

IT WAS HOT HERE TOO. I THINK THAT IT'S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I'VE BEEN TO ANY SOCIAL EVENT THAT I HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO BE AROUND PEOPLE. I MUCH PREFER TO STAY HOME AND NOT HAVE TO EXPLAIN WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME, AS THESE DAYS IT'S QUITE NOTICEABLE THAT I CAN'T STAND UP STRAIGHT OR WALK WITHOUT A 4 QUAD CANE.

Today will be day six at or over 100. My plant are doing well though. I got all the drip lines installed just in time.
This has been a really hard week. I've been back and forth to several doctors with my mom who had brain surgery a few weeks ago and I'm missing my dad very much especially with father's day. August will be two years and I still miss him terribly. My eating has been horribly these last couple of weeks and I'm really feeling like I'm failing once again only this time I have diabetes to contend with so failure really isn't an option. Thanks for letting me vent. If your daddy is still with you, give him an extra big hug today

NANCY, YOUR WEATHER ARRIVES HERE ON MONDAY--WISH I COULD KEEP THIS WEEK'S TEMPS INSTEAD. SORRY ABOUT THE PAPER WORK---BET IT WILL SHOW UP ON MONDAY AFTERNOON. CAN GD DO ANOTHER DAY? OR ANOTHER FRIEND TAKE YOU FOR IT?
EVELYN, I WOULD NOT WANT TO BE AWAKE FOR IT---THEY OFFERED ME THAT FOR MY CYST REMOVAL AND i KNEW IT WOULD NOT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR ME---LOL
JOJO, I AGREE!
DEB, SOUNDS LIKE YOU WERE BUSY CREATING MORE WORK FOR YOURSELF---LOL
WE MADE A GREAT START TO OUR PROJECT--OLDEST SON CAME AND HELPED FOR 2 HOURS, THEN DH WORKED AT HIS OWN PACE IN THE AFTERNOON AND BETWEEN THE 2 OF THEM, HALF OF THE BLOCKS WERE LAID DOWN---IT REALLY LOOKS GOOD AND EVEN MAKES THE GARDEN AREA BEHIND IT POP! I SPRAY PAINTED THE SWING THAT GOES THERE A BRIGHT BLUE---IT LOOKS GOOD! THE AREA LEFT TO DO WILL BE THE MOST DIFFICULT AS WE HAVE DIFFERENT OBSTACLES TO WORK AROUND---FIGURE DH WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO WORK ON IT IN SMALL AMOUNTS OF TIME BECAUSE OF THE HEAT AND TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT BEST TO DO---FIGURE WE WILL NEED TO GET SOME SMALL BLOCKS TO PUT IN SOME AREAS ONCE WE SAY DOWN THE BIGGER ONES---WHICH i THINK WILL GIVE IT A NEAT LOOK IN THAT AREA--KIND OF BREAK UP THE BIG BLOCK LOOK.
TODAY WE HAVE 2 OF THE SONS COMING OVER FOR A BBQ FOR FATHER'S DAY.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE ONE!

Nancy, This will be the last sewing machine I'll ever have. As much as I use this machine, it wouldn't be worth getting another.
Lecates, With all the rain, everything has gotten real big. Tomorrow I'll be clipping some lettuce for me and the turtles. The strawberries are all wiped out by the grandkids. Spent all day pulling out the roots where we had a stump in the ground. I have a lot of planting to do during the week.

Plan to visit a few fruit and vegetable stands, since Hubby has decided to not go fishing for Fathers Day.

I hope everyone enjoy celebrating Fathers Day.

Keep saying I can do this!

I KNOW; I THINK THE SAME THING. IT WOULD BE FUN, BUT I'D PROBABLY ANNOY THE SURGEONS TO NO END WITH MY QUESTIONS! LOL
SOMETIMES THEY DO SURGERIES AND THE PATIENTS ARE STILL AWAKE, BUT I THINK THEY ONLY USE A LOCAL ANESTHESIA THEN. I PREFER AS MUCH PAINKILLERS AS POSSIBLE!

NO BLOOD WORK MONDAY emoticon THE PAPER DID NOT COME IN FROM THE DOCTOR.
AS I WALKED KIRBY THIS MORNING I DECIDED THAT I WAS NOT BUYING ANOTHER MACHINE,, I DON'T USE IT MUCH AND THAT MONEY COULD DO BETTER SOMEWHERE ELSE.IF I WAS STILL AT THE RESIDENCE I WOULD GET IT AS THERE WERE A LOT OF LADIES AND EVEN MEN THAT BROUGHT ME THINGS TO DO

IT IS GOING TO BE A SCORCHER HERE TODAY, IT IS FINE RIGHT NOW AT 73 BUT GOING UP TO 89 THIS AFTERNOON, SO I WILL DO THE FLOORS NOW AND THEN PUT THE A/C ON
HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE, REMEMBER YOUR SUN SCREEN AND WATER emoticon

NANCY, GLAD GD IS AVAILABLE TO TAKE YOU FOR THE BLOOD WORK---I THINK WE ALL HAVE ISSUES WITH THREADING A NEEDLE EVERY NOW AND THEN--AND IT IS FRUSTRATING WHEN THE DARN THING WON'T GO IN THAT LITTLE HOLE.
EVELYN, HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE POOL WORKOUT.
DEB, HOW ARE YOUR PLANTS DOING?
JOJO, WE ALL HAVE LIMITATIONS OF SOME SORT--WE JUST DON'T APPRECIATE WHAT WE COULD DO WHEN YOUNGER.
WE WENT 2X TO LOWE'S YESTERDAY AND, HOPEFULLY, FINISHED BUYING EVERYTHING FOR THE BIG OUTDOOR PROJECT--HOPE TO START IT THIS MORNING---IT WILL TAKE US A WHILE TO GET IT DONE---DON'T WANT TO OVERDO AND HURT DH'S BACK---WILL BE GLAD WHEN IT IS DONE---AND OF COURSE, NEXT WEEK THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY RETURN SO THAT WILL ALSO LIMIT HOW MUCH TIME WE WILL SPEND OUTSIDE---WE WILL NEED TO DO AN EARLY START EACH DAY.
SEEING BLOSSOMS ON SOME OF THE TOMATO PLANTS---HOPE TO SEE SOME FRUIT SOON. FLOWERS ARE FILLING IN NICELY AND EVERYTHING IS BLOOMING NICELY.
HAVE A GOOD SATURDAY!

WHEN I SOLD THE HOUSE AND WENT INTO A 3 1/2 ROOM APARTMENT I HAD TO SELL MY INDUSTRIAL MACHINES, I HAVE SINCE BOUGHT A BROTHER OVER LOCK AND MY DAUGHTER NEVER USED HER PLAIN MACHINE, SO WHEN I TALKED ABOUT BUYING ONE SHE GAVE ME HERS, I HAD BEEN SEWING PATCHES ON MY GRAND SON'S VEST SO NEEDLESS TO SAY THE NEEDLE WAS BLUNT, I HAD HEMS TO DO FOR MY DAUGHTER AND HAD TO CHANGE THE NEEDLE.. I THREADED THE NEEDLE BEFORE PUTTING THE NEEDLE IN THE MACHINE,, HEY WHATEVER WORKS RIGHT

EVE I DO PUT WHITE PAPER BEHIND THE NEEDLE IF I AM TO THREAD A DARK COLOR AND DARK BEHIND IF I AM TO THREAD WHITE,, BUT I HAVE HAD A LOT OF LASER TREATMENTS ON MY EYES DUE TO DIABETES ,, I HAVE A THREADER BUT CAN'T PUT IT THROUGH THE NEEDLE FROM BACK TO FRONT,, OVER LOCK IS EASIER AS IT THREADS FROM SIDE TO SIDE

Nancy, I have a sewing machine that threads itself, I really like it. My other machine that I had wouldn't do heavier materials, so I decided to get a new one a few years ago. I'm still learning to use it and it has a lot of new features that don't require a lot of adapters to making designs. It is more computerized, I bought a Brother sewing machine.

I have to find a place that will sharpen my scissors that I use for sewing. My aunt use to take hers to a sewing shop, but I don't know what they do these days.

Evelyn, Ya, you better get your swimming or whatever you physically got to get done before the surgery. They say that you have a better recovery rate with the incisions that the robot will have to do. The incisions and trauma are minimal compared to a doctor doing the job. Although the doctors are using a joystick to move the robot's arms, which the arms are very steady and precise. It is all impressive to see the robot and the room.

Keep saying I can do this!

Nancy Try holding a piece of white paper behind the needle . You can see the hole better and it easier to thread it. Going to the pool today . Last day for awhile.

JOJO, KEEP TRYING.
WE TURNED THE AC BACK ON LAST NIGHT WHEN WE LEFT AS IT WAS QUITE HUMID AND THE HOUSE WOULD HAVE BEEN UNCOMFORTABLE WHEN WE GOT BACK HOME FROM THE POOL AND GOING OUT TO DINNER AFTERWARDS.
ALREADY HAD A BIT OF RAIN LAST NIGHT AND SUPPOSED TO HAVE MORE TODAY--SO NO WORKING ON THE OUTDOOR PROJECT TODAY. MIGHT HAVE GD FOR A BIT TODAY---WE WILL SEE IF THAT HAPPENS---OTHERWISE I WILL BE WORKING ON THE SPARE ROOM. GARDENS ARE LOOKING LOVELY AND LOTS OF DAYLILIES IN BLOOM.
