Good middle of the week MiMI and to all those that will follow my post. Hope today is going well for each of you and that you will not be dealing with fibro's issues or pain. I know that some here are dealing with a lot of stress and fibro issues and pain and I hope that these soon pass.
Well we've had a stormy 15 hours here. Hot with thunderstorms and rain. Right now there's thunder to the north of me and I can see the lightening and hear the crack and booms. Funny thing though it's sunny over my yard but not two streets up from me. But I just check weather alerts and they say those storms are heading over my head soon. So it goes in the SE in the summer time.
It's supposed to get up to the mid 90's, with clouds, most of the day. I have an errand or two to run this afternoon so I hope the clouds, when the come, don't last too very long.
DH came home with more small trees in pots yesterday and put up shelves along the other side of the back fence. I wish we didn't have to try this to keep the neighbor's flood light off our yard but since we do I gotta admit those trees look so nice back there and I'm kinda glad we've gotta there now.
Nothing much to post about.
MiMi, I do hope that you are able to get much needed rest and that any stress that you are dealing with passes quickly. And yes, Oh My Yes, the children will be back in school in just days here. My 3 GC start the first week of August. Where did my summer go?
Lou, I love, repeat love your work. The lovely scarfs you have made are just wonderful! You will have no problem selling them. I see 3 that I want, just can't seem to find a way to get the price and mailing address.
cece, I hope today is less stressful for you. I wish you had more YOU time to get rested, collected and organized for the upcoming school year. And I am sure that a job In House will open up as it's still early yet. I had one job offer 3 weeks into the school year, but I had to pass on it because I had taken classes and they conflicted with the job hours.
To all those feeling the wrath of the dragon I send <<HUGS >> and prayers that your fibro issues or pain will pass quickly.
Hellos to Nancy, Cory, Mel, Lisa, Jeanne and Sarah and to anyone my poor fibro fog has let me forget to mention.
Oh my the sky has gotten really dark overhead and now there's rain and lightning.. ugh so I will close this here. Have a great day everyone.
cece, so sorry that the job fair did pan out. I went to so many @ LAUSD and left with nothing. I know so many of those jobs are going In House and wonder why they even had them posted at job fairs. Something will open up, it's early yet.
I'm glad your daughter brought the baby for your friend to see and play with...
As for the Jury Duty I haven't been called, ever. DH's has gone twice. I was listed as Disabled when I was 27 so I never got a letter. I hope you can get them to take your name off for this year like Rudy has. He told them he has served twice in 10 years and he has a full time job and a sick wife.. so his name is off their list until 2018.
Moving? I must have missed that in a prior post. Who's moving.
I hope today you get to rest and catch up any YOU things. <<< Gentle hugs my friend. Today and always.>>> Linda RView Thread
Good Tuesday MiMi and to all those who will follow. I do hope your today will go well and that fibro issue or pain will not be a part of it. I hope the sun is shining where you are and that you are able to be out of doors to enjoy the summer day.
It feels like a summer day here... high 90's and lots of sun. We will get a storm in later on but until then I am enjoying the sun and warmth.
DH and I bought 4 small evergreen trees yesterday to put along our back fence line. We have new neighbors who bought the house behind us and for God only knows what reason the husband, 6 months ago, had a commercial flood light installed on the top of his back roof, facing our back yard. When it's on our back yard and porch lights up like it's day time and you have to put your hand to your eyes it's that bad. I have spoken with the wife twice about the light and she says her husband is digging in and not having the light adjusted down just to their yard. So after another summer evening spoiled for us we went and got the trees, put up a shelf on our back fence and put the trees up to block the light. We know when Fall comes and our trees lose their leaves their light will become out light again .. ugh.
Anyway that was yesterday... today it's Ross's and an errand or two and then home. Nothing much going on or much to post about so will say my hellos...
MiMi, sorry you yesterday and Sunday was stressful and tiring. And I too don't like to drive the interstate or freeways like I once used to do. Back in the SFV it was bumper to bumper so you had to add an hour to your drive time if you wanted to get where you had to be on time. Here it's so much better but TN does road work 24/7 so the slow downs or dead stops go back for miles.. again having to add time to your drive. So I am not liking those drives here either. I do hope you get rested and feeling back to normal quickly.
Lou, found you on Pinterest started to follow you.. love your work.. OMG.. Need to know how to buy some of the things you had posted. You can message me @ firstname.lastname@example.org on fb.
Hellos to: cece, Nancy, Cory, Mel, Lisa, Jeanne and SarahView Thread
Good Sunday MiMi and Nancy and to all that will follow. I hope your day goes well and that it will be a good one, a fibro issue and pain free one.
It's hot here, but thankfully not sticky or muggy. The hot sunny weather feels so good to me. I think that's why winter's here drag me down so far because everything about me loves hot and sunny days. Maybe not Arizona right now hot, , but hot.
DH and I stayed home :') yesterday doing things around the house. UGH We made a really late, 10 o'clock, run to the market for some things we were out of and didn't get back until midnight. I was headed out the door at nine but saw my BF neighbor out by her garage and well there went an hour of chit-chatting. DH was not happy. Fill that under Oh Oh.
Let me share this with you. My cousin reminded me of something that I am doing here with all of you that my grandmother, who raised me, did for many, many years. My grandmother, such a wonderful woman, had a letter writing system with her friends back in Iowa called a Round Robin. It went like this one friend would write my grandmother a letter, she would read it, write a letter and then add it to the one she got and then send it onto another mutual friend, who would read the letters, write and add her letter to the envelope send it along, and after a month or so an envelope of letters would come back to my grandmother. She would take out her's, read all the other letters, write a new one and send it along. She did this every few months for years and years until only her's and one or two others came back.
Those letters from her friends were a lifeline. They meant so much to her. Just like the posts here,my dear wonderful friends.You all are my life line and I don't have words enough to thank you.
MiMi, you are the glue that keeps us all together. At the helm here guiding us each day with ideas and tools to keep the symptoms of the " dragon " at bay.
Nancy, as MiMi is the glue you are the strength and wisdom that guide us. For that and so much more I Thank You. And Nancy, my BFF, Thank you so much for the special words... you have become such an important part of my life's story too.From the heart <<< HUGS >>>
cece,my dear BFF, cece, I do hope that yesterday was a good one.. no stress and you got some rest time or baby holding, playing, cuddling time. I hope that today is restful as well... Just want you to be able to do something you want to do. <<< HUGS >>>
Oh darn DH is up..well not darrn, but you know what I meant. Let me close quickly with hellos to all of you.
Have a wonderful day... Gentle hugs my friends, Linda R View Thread
Good Saturday MiMi and to all that will follow. I do hope that you are all feeling well today and that fibro issues and pain are not a part of your day.
MiMi, it's hot here and staying hot for the next week. But since I like the very warm weather I'm enjoying it while I have it.
DH is off today and tomorrow so we thought we'd make a road trip somewhere just to get out of town. I am thinking Atlanta or Tunica, MS. He said he'd take me to the Gulf, but that would 7 hours to enjoy the sand and surf and then turn around and drive 7 hours home. Atlanta is just 4.
Nothing much to post about so....
Lou, love your idea and let me know where I can buy some of the things you have made. I used to buy from Sharon but she's busy working pretty much full time do landscaping with her husband. Anyway let me know about buying some of the things you have made and are selling.
MiMi, heres wishing your DH many happy, fulfilling and restful years of retirement. My DH only got 3 months of his retirement from GM when our financial debt forced him to return to the work force. He gets to fully retire in 2017 when we should have every debt we owed when he retired paid off and are ready for life on pensions and social security.
cece, I know it feels so odd to be sorting and taking things away from your parents home while there are still with you.. but for those of us who have had to do it, we know how you feel.
I watched as one SIL after another, 6 in all, come by and pick through my MIL's things and with each visit the room became less and less my MIL's and just a room. . I guess I'd have to say if left a hollow feeling that took a visit up to my MIL's to wipe away.. but it all had to be done cause the state of California was watching.
Ya know what it did do it made every minute I had with my MIL extra special because I still had her and the things she had were unimportant, it was her and I gotta say I treasure those visits and the time with her. I only got 8 months before she left us.. but what good months they were.
Cory, so glad you visit to our state was a good one. Maybe we can link up next trip in... it's a plan.
DH is up so let me close this here with my best wishes to all for a wonderful weekend.. Hellos going out to Nancy, Mel, Lisa, Jeanne and saraha.. have a great day. Gentle hugs my friends, Linda RView Thread
Lisa, you are right, but, it doesn't feel right for me to send it to her. I am a private person and I really didn't want to compose a Eulogy. My thoughts may well change after she passes, I may want to add or subtract a word or phrase that not longer fits.
She hasn't asked me about the Eulogy and when she does I am going to tell her, and it's the truth, I am not finished writing it. And as for letting her know how I feel, I am doing that each day when we talk.
Good middle of the week MiMI and to all that follow. I do hope that today will be a good one for everyone and that fibro issues or pain will not be a part of your day.
Hello to Cory!, who is in my neck of the woods! The weather may not be the best though. I do hope that it is warm and sunny there in downtown Nashville. Am so glad you got out and got in some sightseeing there. Downtown is a lot of fun.. music, good food and friendly people. Enjoy!
It's overcast and rainy here this a.m. and may be so the rest of the day. I hope it's better weather up in Nashville. 55 miles up north of me. Along with overcast and rainy it's muggy as well and cooler than it's been. Around 80 I think.. but a nice change from yesterday's hot all day and into the evening.
Nothing much to post about. Life is slower than molasses here. I finished writing the Eulogy for my ex SIL and friend of 40 years. She asked me three weeks ago to write it, again, and after a very close call with her heart last week I sat down and composed it. I made corrections to it yesterday and put it away in DH's dresser drawer. Out of sight, out of mind. She hasn't asked if I had written it and I hope that she doesn't as she wants to read it when I'm done. I guess I could lie and say I hadn't done it yet, but would feel awful doing that. BUT would feel even worse if I had to send it to her and she read my final thoughts about her and the life we shared as BFF's. Some things I believe are better left alone.
Okay since I have nothing newsworthy to post about I'll close here by saying hello to all...MiMi, Nancy, Lou, cece, Lisa, Jeanne, Mel and Sarah. Wishing you all a wonderful day.
