This weekend this girl is going fishing!

Yeah!!! And I woke up to completely clear blue skies and a beautiful sunrise this morning. Now THAT I can handle and my calf hurts far less this morning too! It still pinches but I'm walking normally on it rather than limping! I should have a regular day today!

Sounds like a plan!

Yeah well, we were stuck indoors even if we had wanted to do something. It poured rain all day Canada Day.

I've got the lawns all cut. Now to do the trimming, but I so nicely have a knot in my left calf at the moment. So that put a kink in my morning. I've massaged it with Pain-A-Trate but it'll take a while to get this one out!

Good Morning! We have clouds, with sun, and maybe a little rain later? Mother Nature is a little undecided yet today. Today is our Friday, as we have a holiday on Saturday. I'm looking forward to having the time off, but really we can't do much, as gathering in crowds is still not a go. I was hoping to hit the farmer's market, but Don thinks it will be crazy busy because of the holiday weekend, and doesn't want to be in any kind of crowds. So we will see. We are going to stick around home mostly. I have a little patch of weeding, right outside our front door, and then we will just enjoy the park where we live. I have a stack of books to read, and hopefully the sun will shine. Chat soon! emoticon

I am happy, VERY happy to report I woke up to an almost cloudless sky and sunshine this morning!!!! I'm one happy camper!

OK I have most everything done already so it's off to writing this morning and with any luck, I'll be able to get outside and cut the grass this afternoon!

I myself was up at 4:30 looked after the animals and actually went back to bed and didn't wake up until well after seven Man did I need that sleep. Problem with extra sleep I wake up with headaches. So coffee and Advil and I've kicked it to the curb...almost.

After five days of straight rain, the sun is finally fighting to come out, but there are still thunderstorm warnings for this afternoon. I don't care As long as I see the sun for a while at least! I went out and filled the birdfeeders to get some sun. It's hot and humid!

And to all our Canadians this morning Happy Canada day!

Oh Gaads...I remember when Don worked still, he would set his alarm to go off, and then hit snooze sooooo many times! I would be wide awake by the time he had to leave for work. And he left for work at 3:45 AM. ugh! So glad that isn't a thing anymore!

It's rainy here today. I need to go flag for a burial. It should be easy as it's in a niche, so shouldn't take to long. Thankfully, as I'm not prepared to be out in the rain. I better invest in a rain jacket I've decided!

Have a great day! emoticon

OH WOW, AWESOME TIMES! That's great we all need that!

Good morning?
I'm feeling tough this morning because Walt's alarm went off twice during the night. The cats had knocked it on the floor and it must have triggered the alarm set. Then when I did go back to sleep I dreamed I had gone back to the Review! NIGHTMARE!!
So yeah woke up anxious this morning and unable to breath had to take my puffers.

Happy Monday All!

We had a nice weekend. I went to a glass blowing studio for work. But it was rather fantastic to meet the artists one on one and be surrounded by beautiful blown glass pieces. We are looking at having this studio make us custom blown glass urns. We'll see how that pans out. After that, we went to Snoqualmie Falls, as we were just 10 minutes away, so why not? Such beauty! And finally, before returning home we went to a Farmers Market. It was really a great day, and the first time we had left town since before the COVID outbreak. Sunday I went for a walk at the harbor. Again, just gorgeous. Today, not to brag, but we have sunshine on the books as well. I'm working, but Don is going to go fishing I think. Tomorrow is when we are scheduled to have rain roll in.

Have a lovely day! Chat more soon! emoticon

Good morning!
And again it's going to be a rainy damp windy day here in Coronation So again I will be stuck indoors. That's alright I'll do my Spring micro cleaning getting into nooks and crannies. Going to pick a room each day and should have all six done by the end of the week. Today I'll start in the kitchen. Once I have it done I'll still have my daily chores but they won't take long and then I'll get back to my writing. I'm halfway through Chapter Ten right now and have hit over 50,000 words by the time I stopped last night.

And my sister has a midnight caller LOL

I'm in the same boat. It's too windy and wet to do anything outside today yet. So like you Housework it is. I've done most of it now so will sit and write for awhile now.

Hey!! I just joined the team but happy to be here. It's windy and dusty here in Oklahoma. My car was covered in a fine layer of "Sahara dust" this morning. I had planned to work outside today but it looks like it's going to be too windy so housework it is!

Well, ladies, We've had a good soaking rain that lasted all night. So with everything so wet, I couldn't do much outside. So I did what needed doing on a Saturday and spent the rest of the day writing. So, I'm well into chapter nine and up to 49,198 words! Now I'm going to call it a day. My mind and eyes are very tired.

Good Morning! It is muggy here today. It feels like the weather back east. Only without the extra large mosquito's. I'm very excited as I am hosting happy hour this afternoon! I'm hoping that we can have it outside, but either way it will be fantastic. It will be a small happy hour, as just in case it needs to be inside, with our tiny space, we can't have too many people and keep socially distanced. But, it's fun to have something to look forward to and plan. You are coming along so quickly on your book! Very exciting! Okay, off to work I go! Have a great day! Stay cool! emoticon

Hi Lisa, if you're checking in today! emoticon

Good morning! Well, we did get a little rain early this morning so everything is nice and wet and cooled down for now at least but there isn't a cloud in the sky and the sun is already rising high. So we're in for another HOT one.

Oh my, that would be loud! It's to bad you didn't have a soundproof headset to be able to talk to your clients. It would drown out the noise for you.

It is very cool here today, thankfully because it's been boiling hot for the last three days. It's also threatening to rain. It keeps spitting but no real showers. If it's going to rain I wish it would rain already. We do need it.
In the meantime I've just been doing the cleaning thing around the house, taking out the garbage to the curb because it's pick up today and writing. I'm three-quarters the way through chapter eight.

Happy Midweek to both of you! What a week it has been! I finally got my haircut last night. Not that it needed much as I had shaved it all off a month or so ago. It's just now growing back! But it is shaped and styled now at least! We are still full fledge in the middle of a remodel at work. It is so loud that I can't hear on the phones! It's rather embarrassing. I'm hearing impaired anyway, so I wear hearing aids, but even if I was full hearing, I don't think I would be able to hear! It is loud! They are in the process of grinding the floors. Have a beautiful day! Chat soon! emoticon

Hi NOMORESTALLING!

I was looking for a bit of motivation this morning and came across your beautiful smiling face and your inspirational team. Thank you for sharing what I think is probably the best part of you.

I usually just stalk teams taking the best and never giving back but I realize that is a mistake that is really breaking me down. I promise to check in at least once a week and see how you beautiful peeps are getting along.

Thanks for sharing your energy!

Lisa

Sorry, I'm later than usual but I wanted to get my lawns trimmed and mowed and some of the weeding done before it got too hot out there. So I've done that now, got my exercise for sure and actually worked up a preparation!

Feeling a little on the tough side this morning. Neck and shoulder are still hurting. So taking the day as it comes. I do need to go out and water all my plants and cut the lawns though. But this morning I'm just going to kick back and write Hopefully get Chapter Five done.


Oh yes. But knowing he is in a far better place without pain and suffering does my heart glad too.

Walt walked in the door last night carrying a little grey/silver ball of fur. Its eyes completely glued shut. We now have them open, he's eaten some wet food and dry food. There's nothing to him poor little thing.
He's at least 8 weeks but he's small so I'm thinking runt of the litter.
And he needs to get some fat on him I can feel every little rib and backbone.

I'm afraid I have some very sad news. Just before midnight Yoda woke me up just crying. So I took him out of the carrier gave him lovin's, cleaned out his eyes, tried to give him a little more to eat, but his breathing was erratic. His little chest I felt it and it was not developed right. So he had other things wrong. And I could feel his little life leaving his body. So he passed away in my arms last night. And so much the better He's no longer in pain or sick. Walt doesn't know yet. He'll be heartbroken.
he ate and drank fine but now I'm thinking too, that his little digestive system was not developed either. You can get so many things wrong with a runt of the litter the last one born. If a female has been bread with more than one male the fetus' from the last mating develops slower and when the firsts are ready to be born they are all born whether completely developed or not and I'm thinking that what happened with this dear soul.

Well, my friend Leslea is at home as of 10:30 last night. Doing well. It had nothing to do with her heart thank the heavens. Apparently it had to do with the veins in her arm. So she's on yet another medication.

We had more rain during the night and expecting more today. That's alright I have things to get done and more writing. Up to 36,979 words as of yesterday evening.

Never heard a peep from Boss B She's off with surgery on her shoulder starting tomorrow. She will be off for 6 weeks.

I'm happy you got your note to be off work again. That is nerve wracking. I'm sure the Doctor could see that the anxiety of even thinking there might be a possibility to go back to work was stressing you! Did the boss reply to your note at all?

Have a lovely day today! We have sunshine mixed with clouds! emoticon

My friend Leslea is finally out of ICU but was on the verge of another attack, but hse's been moved to the regular ward and they are still continuing more tests to find out what's going on.

I also had my monthly doctor's appointment to get my next note for work for stress leave. It gave me anxiety issues and nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof. I was flushed, wringing my hands. Once I had the note and my updated prescription and left I was fine about an hour later. I uploaded it as an attachment and e-mailed it over. I wasn't setting foot in that place.

It's a warm rain here today and is supposed to rain most of the day. So I'm doing my usual indoors and writing Then after lunch headed into Stettler for my mid-month grocery run.

Please do update when you know more about your friend!

Yesterday it just dumped rain all day. Today, looks overcast, but doesn't seem to be wanting to rain. So that's okay by me. I will need to go out and flag a grave. Yesterday I did that in the rain. I have some fancy rain boots though, which I love, so really it doesn't bother me to much!

Work has been so stressful lately. Living here as well as working, it's like the stress never leaves. I have decided this week that I am not going to talk about work when I get home. So our space is sacred, and work free. I've been carrying alot around and my neck and shoulders are really feeling it. It was to the point where I couldn't turn my head, as my neck muscles were so tight and sore. And to add to that, my eye is now twitching. All stress related. So, back to basics for the health of my mind. Back to meditations, circle groups, reading, and less internet. I just can't seem to handle the news. What is wrong with me? I feel like I'm just burying my head in the sand when I don't keep up on what is going on, but when I do keep up, I end up a ball of stress. I need to learn the art of balancing what I can do, and let go what I can't do anything about.

Have a lovely day in your yard! emoticon

I had a medical emergency this morning. My friend Leslea called me at 4:30 from emerge She woke up with pain going up her left arm. She got herself to the hospital and because she already has heart issues and has a valve they are taking her up to Calgary by ambulance so I had to run and collect the things she'd need to take with her; c-pap being the main item. And I have her pup Mikey here until she returns.

We've had more thunderstorms and rain so outdoor work will be vetoed today. That's alright I have things that need doing here in the house and I'll write up chapter four. I finished chapter three yesterday. I am now well over 35,000 words!

Happy Friday Team!

It is overcast and looking like rain for today. Acutally through the weekend looks the same per the forecast. I'm alright with that. I want to spend some time reading anyway.

BBQ'ing corn. Easy, easy. Soak the entire ear of corn with the husk in a bucket/sink of water for an hour or so. When the bbq is good and hot just toss the ears on. We cook them until the husks start to get black. Basically it is steaming them I think. It is oh so good though...Usually takes 5 maybe 10 minutes? I haven't really timed it, but it is quick I know that!

Have a lovely weekend all! emoticon

Good morning all!

And, it's chilly here this morning to We have a very windy day but skies are clear and I will have sun. But it's too windy to do things outside. So I'm thankful I got done what I did yesterday. So, it's micro-cleaning inside today and writing.

How do you BBQ corn and for how long? I usually do mine in the microwave or oven.

Good Morning!

I'm glad to hear your doctor is working so well and closely with you. It's sometimes hard to find good medical care. (at least around here..) Today is rainy again. That's okay, we are going to bbq corn on the cob tonight anyway. Last night Don and I went out and did a few work orders around the park. Spring is here, and the grounds crew is swamped. Really it helps me in the long run, as I don't get the angry caller wondering why their request has not been attended to. But, the physical labor helped me sleep well last night too!

Enjoy your day! WELCOME to all the NEW members! Hop on and introduce yourselves! Love to have new faces here! emoticon

And good morning,

How's everybody this morning?

I'm better than I was. Saturday was NOT a good day for me emotionally. Nuf said. Sunday was a little better. Monday was even better but still not at my best. Today....let's just say I'm back to being on the top of my game. I had a talk with my doctor yesterday over the phone and we've adjusted my meds to double what I was taking and changed them to time-released once a day which is going to help tremendously.

I have my clear skies and sunshine back in full force so I'll be able to get outside and get those four or five projects completed I've needed to do.

And look at what's outside my living room window! I have five little visitors this morning!






Seriously? Your boss doesn't believe that it is happening at all or she feels she's invincible and it won't happen to her? My hubby is skeptical too but he does recognize that it is out there just not here and they are still taking the necessary precautions in their workplace.

All I can recommend is that YOU follow the protocol to keep you and Don safe. Wear the masks, and gloves if you have to. Then throw your clothes into the washing machine as soon as you get home and then a hot shower.

So, as we are opening to phase 2 here in Washington, our company is having to make some changes to be compliant. The other two locations the reception area is glassed in. Here, because of our remodel, I am in a small office with no protection at all. Just a desk and the public. So, I went to my supervisor and said I was uncomfortable. As this last week, as the state is in phase 2, people are more comfortable coming in and asking questions, visiting, etc. Which I do love to see, but the space in my office is not big enough for more then 1 person at a time to be in there. There is no sneeze guard in front of my desk, nothing. As well, as doors are being left open by the chapel and our old entry way as the bathrooms are over there, and the grounds team is using them. But, they get left unlocked and the public goes around the signs that say "do not enter", around the tape, around the blockades and come in from the back of where my office is. So I have people coming in from all different ways. This is not working. I am wearing a mask, however our boss does not believe in the COVID nightmare, so isn't very willing to take any precautions that he doesn't deem necessary or are mandated by law. So, the public doesn't have to mask. Fine, but then don't come into my office? I hate to be a complainer, but Don is at high risk with only one functioning lung, as well as being over the 60 age mark. It took a lot for me to go to her, but I decided it is important. My health and Don's health is more important then all this. The issue is, as I mentioned before, we live here too. So, not only am I putting my job on the line if my boss reacts badly to my requests, but also where I live. I'm a little nervous, but it had to be said. I think I will start looking for other places to reside, just in case...ugh. Sorry to unload all that here, but I needed a safe place to get all this out.

Have a good day! It is dumping rain here.

Happy Monday! You are getting so much accomplished between the yard, the house, and the writing! Amazing! I am so happy you got this opportunity to take a break from the stress of your old job! Even in the short notes written here, I can feel the energy is completely different. emoticon

This weekend we went out around people for the first time in months. We, as a state are in phase 2, where restaurants can open partially for dine in, parks are opening for recreation, and churches (I think) can gather with restrictions. We went to a solidarity meet with apparently 7000 others to a downtown park on Saturday. Everybody was masked and distanced. It was incredible! There were no riots, not negative energy. Just beautiful people speaking, letting there voices be heard. And they were...We came home and tossed all our clothes in the washer immediately, and hopped in the shower. Then yesterday, I went for a walk with one of my closest friends. It was just the two of us, and we walked down at the waterfront. Then we sat down at an outside table and visited for two hours. It was literally just what I needed! I have been so down, and feeling overwhelmed with the lack of normalacy. I feel refreshed again. My heart is a little lighter this Monday morning.

Have a beautiful day today. It is overcast here, and rained all night. But, I'm hoping to get in a walk tonight, rain or shine! emoticon

This is what happened at the Jaraway household this week.


The house numbers got put on the archway and the metal gate got a fresh coat of glossy black paint



The lanterns got hung on the inside of the archway.



Shutters were added to the front window and they got a change in colour from the powder blue they were to the black you see, the front door has a fresh coat, a new change of colour from the brown stain to a black flat paint. I have the door frame to give a fresh coat of red yet.



This bench was the one Leslea and I found lost along the highway and fixed and it got a new colour from black navy to the cherry red you see.



The gate to the rear entrance got a new look Lattice on either side and the gate has a fresh coat of red.



And the side yard flower garden got it's finishing touch of lattice on either side and a new hummingbird feeder.



And last but not least these are my pansies this year at the top of the driveway!

Oh wow, I would never have guessed that! You know there was a time when our family lived that way as well, but it was more choice than belief. It made the family a much closer-knit unit. In today's society, the kids do nothing but live on a computer or video comes it's sad really.

I think I just dated myself LOL

Lol! I bet Don would recognize these shows! I grew up in a very small group, community, okay I grew up in a hippie commune type culture. We had no TV, no phone, of course no computer, as they weren't really a thing back then. But we didn't listen to music on the radio, but rather sang in a circle, and played guitar. We lived on the ocean in community. It was beyond beautiful. But, I do get left out of a lot of conversations, as I have no idea what people are referencing when they talk about old movies, or show. For that matter, current ones either...I still don't have TV.

Happy Friday! Have a fantastic weekend! emoticon

Good morning!

Today I have clear skies sunshine and very little wind so painting gets done today! The front door and door frame and the new back gates. That'll pretty much be my goals today aside from some writing and tidying up inside.

What's your day looking like?

I have no wind today!!!!! Clear skies and sunshine!YES!!!!! Grasses need cutting and trimming again! And the back fence and new gate need painting! So once I have my few indoor chores taken care of...

And of course, there's my writing! I am now almost 27,000 words after yesterday!

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

Good morning! Again with the wind and rain during the night and although still windy but calmer the clouds are clearing off! So I'll have to wait a bit to do the few things outside I need to do. In the meantime I do have a few things indoors that need doing so I'll look after that and then write for a bit.

Well, come on down Girl! I can put a shrimp on the bab'ie!

I got the bench painted with its final red coat today and the swing is sporting a new coat of black too!
I've done more outside today than inside except for the writing I did when I decided to take a break.

And my GF Leslea just called she found me a hanger for my hummingbird feeder and red cushions for my swing! So now that's three projects completed today!

Well, it seems to be drier out there than I thought soooo... I went and made the changes I wanted to. Starting with remounting the shed doors! The wind was so strong during the night it blew them right off their runners!





From there I made these changes.
I moved these dark navy recliner chairs from the front to the back and then moved my red bench into the front yard to replace the blue chairs. That took a little bit of wind out of me, but itís done. I still have work to do of course. The bench as you can see still needs to have its final coat of red and the table behind it still goes in the backyard and I'll have a different set up for the kitty cats to put their food and water out, but Iíll get to it. Right now I have a need to catch my breath and find brunch. I completely missed breakfast and now it's almost lunchtime! All that and including making my bank run to make sure all month-end bills were paid!.

We also had a crazy thunder/lightening assisted by wind storm, over the weekend! Wowzer! It was crazy! Today, is sunny and bright so hopefully things will dry out nicely. Although I read that tomorrow we are back to rain again...soo.....

You accomplished so much over the weekend! I love your post workout, need a hair cut picture! You look great! emoticon I buzzed off my hair a few weeks ago. We still don't have hair dressers open so, it will be awhile before I see the inside of a hair shop!

Our cat Nova has a cat climb. She doesn't use it that much however. Sometimes, if I put it in a spot that she fancies, then she might consider using it....the rest of the time, she just ignores it. Silly cat.

Well back to a normal work week for me. Monday is well under way with lots of things to get done! That's alright by me though! It makes the day go by faster! Good luck with your writing today! emoticon

Well, that weather cleared off and the temperatures soared!

I now have absolutely everything trimmed, cut, weeded and deadheaded in both front and back yards!
Ya think I had a workout? LOL And see how badly I need a visit to my hairdressers!



Plus my little house is all clean inside and the laundry done. I have a pair of coveralls to hem for Walt yet and then I can call it a day!

Well, we have very dark clouds coming in from the southwest but the rest of the skies are clear and the sun is on its way! I've gotten all kids looked after and hubby his coffee and mine! Next, we lower Walt's years and have breakfast! By then we should be able to start hammering, sawing and weed eating.

Holy Cats! You'll never guess what I came across in Wlat's sock drawer! The letter I wrote to him 20 years ago that reunited us! He's had it all this time!
So, I've already typed it out and saved it so I have it when I'll need it!

I wish! Sometimes I will start at 8:30

But we have cloudy and colder temperatures this morning. It's cloudy with a chance of meatballs here and windy. So unless that changes our projects are put on hold for today. We had planned on pulling the back yard fence apart a section of it and redoing it. And I wanted to get that racking all done and the second flowerbed weeded and my flowers. I got my garden boxes moved and set up for planting yesterday and everything cut and trimmed.

That's funny that you mention the early morning lawn mowing and the neighbors. One of our local radio stations just had a discussion as to what time is appropriate to begin mowing, etc. The common ground answer was 9. I thought that was quite late, but how do I know?! I don't have neighbors who care at all what I do, nor what time I do it at! LOL!

Have a lovely weekend! Chat next week! emoticon

So I may or may not get outside today. I'm hoping to beat the rain at least to get the grasses cut this morning. But it's only 6 am and I don't think my neighbours would appreciate me starting a mower this early LOL

We are having sunshine and blue skies as well! I wish I was working outside in the garden, but instead I have to go to the Mausoleum storage. It is the ickiest place. It's not only dark, dirty, and full of rodent droppings, the lights don't work either! But, One of our families is planning on paying and picking up the cremains of their loved one, who has been stored for years. I'm happy she will be going home with her family, but I have to go dig around in the storage room to find her. We keep all the indigent and unclaimed remains for the county there. Oh well...It could be worse...it could be rainy and stormy outside and make the place all that more creepier! Enjoy your writing and your gardens today! emoticon

Oh my, renovations! They will be nice when finished!


OK I guess it's up and att'em time. I have a few things more to do and then meeting Leslea for 9:3 to head out for the city. We shouldn't be long today Don't really have that much to do. Depending on the line up at Costco I'm thinking it'll be what takes the longest time. Today I wish I didn't really have to go I'd rather be working in my back yard and working on my book to tell you the truth.

Coffee is always a start to the day for me as well! LOL! Back to work today, I had Sunday and Monday off...worked Saturday. It was nice to just spend time at home with not a lot to do! We are starting a remodel of our chapel, foyer, and reception area at the funeral home. Oh and are selection room, and family meeting rooms. It's a big remodel. First phase is all that, second phase is all the back offices. Anyway, So I am being displace for a bit. The temporary entrance will be at the back of the funeral home. My office is also now at the back of the funeral home. At least it will be by this afternoon. Such a weird thing. But, since we can't have indoor services, I guess it really is the best time to go forward with that part of the remodel. I'm a bit anxious, as that's just how I am with change. But it will be fine. I'm learning to just roll with it! Have a good day! Enjoy your gardens! emoticon

Well another busy day for me. Starting with COFFEE! Then I'll get dressed, tidy up the kitchen, make the bed. It's too cool and wet out at the moment. We've had a nice rain shower early, early this morning. And the forecast is 60% rain by this afternoon. So, in all probability I won't get outside today. Oh well, more writing opp.

It's too cool out at the moment but once it warms up I have the trimming to do and my back flowerbeds to weed and get my flowers into them, and the kitchen blind needs scrubbing. I take it outside and hose it down and scrub it with soap and water. And, because they aren't predicting any rain for the next couple of days I need to water everything. So going to do that early on while it is still cool and things are still in shade.

And, we're right pleased with ourselves today!
I did accomplish what I set out to do! All grasses are mowed, the gate and the bench got their first coat of fresh paint. Plus I got some writing in!
Now I have supper ready and I'm going to do a bit more writing for an hour or two!

Good morning! We have our glorious blue skies and sunshine back! So I'm going to do some writing this morning and then get outdoors. I found my red paint, a stir stick and a brand new paintbrush. The back gate is going to get a facelift as is the bench a change of colour today!

I'm ready for some sun now too. We are supposed to see some over the weekend which would do me just fine. I want to get out to work on my back yard now. The front and side yards are all but done. They just need the upkeep from here on.

I just did a quick run to the town office and got the dogs their new tags. 20$ each. So 60$ And what's stupid is even though we don't need to replace the tags unless they get lost we still have to pay the 60$/yearly. That's stupidity Once your dog is registered and they have their tags that should have to be it. A One time cost and registration.

Here too is grey and a little rainy. It really makes things green! So beautiful! Soon enough we will have the hot sun and the grass will be more brownish rather then the lush green. Don't get me wrong...I happen to love the sun! But I too am enjoying this season as well! Made a spaghetti squash for dinner last night, left overs for lunch! yum!

Have a good weekend! emoticon

Here I have another dull rainy day so another writing day for me once I have things caught up. We needed the rain so I am very thankful for it. Everything is turning that lush spring green and my rain barrels are filling up!

WTheck! He called to rant and rave about something mother nature had done and blamed you?! That's absurd! Totally uncalled for!

Oh my goodness, I am eating my words about "doing something different"! So, it was quite windy yesterday evening through the night. And, we have 1000 flags up...(800 to go.) So, a pleasant, and I use that word loosely, Veteran phoned in screaming that we are so disrespectful, might as well just shoot him in the head. Because, he found a flag that had blown down. The pole actually blew down, therefore the flag was on the ground. Okay, I understand that is not how to treat a flag. BUT, we didn't just go around and lay the flags on the ground! The wind blew it over! So, out I go to do a flag check. Grabbed a couple more that looked like maybe they wouldn't make it through the night, then called it a night. This morning at 5 a.m. made a swoop through the park to be sure they were all upright, and nobody that was visiting early this morning would find anything that was disturbing to them. Nope..So, I'm standing in the kitchen looking out over the park at 7 a.m. and low and behold, there is a flag and pole laying down on the ground. So, out I go again. Good grief! I'm not sure about this whole thing. Sorry to rant, but I'm a little frustrated. Anywhooo...Have a good day! emoticon

Well, we got our rain! It's been raining since midnight! Everything is soaked good and proper. There will be no working outdoors today. My rain barrels are full and overflowing! So I've done up the little things that need doing inside and now I can do some serious writing today! WOOT! WOOT!

I know It's sad really. What both Yvonne and I are thinking and realizing is there's signs of Dementia showing up. Her mother died of severe Alzheimer's. So we're thinking...yeah.

Oh my goodness! There is something wrong with Boss B! How horrible for Yvonne to have to deal with her. I'm glad you are looking out for her as well, and made her promise to move on! I'm positive you are correct in your assumption that Boss B wanted to interrogate you about when you were coming back etc. I do wonder what happened to this woman, to make her absolutely so horrible! She needs some serious help!

We are setting up for Memorial Day here at work. We usually have a huge weekend long festival. But, that is not an option this year, so we are just putting up our hundreds of casket size flags. They line the cemetery streets. It is really quite spectacular. I was out until 7pm last night putting up flags. They are all alphabetized by the Veterans last name. We got started on letter D. ugh...this is a long process! In years past we have had volunteers come out and the flags are up within a day. No volunteers as we can't accept them, so this will be a project all the way through Friday night. I'm sore, but it was fun to do something different for a while.

Chat later! Have a good day! emoticon

He's the tire tech and Shop Forman for the OK Tire business here in town.

Well, here what happened yesterday, morning.
My "Manger" text me saying Boss B wanted my key to the office. And I'm thinking "why?" because technically I'm still employed there and she can't hire anyone to replace me unless I officially quit. So I have her over a barrel as long as I stay on stress leave.

But I also had a very good conversation with Yvonne when she stopped by to pick up the key. I found out what it's been like during my absence. Oh wow Boss B is worse than she ever was. She loses her temper over the smallest thing and is screaming until the veins pop in her neck! She's taking every little thing out on Yvonne.
Even over the key yesterday She got screamed at for contacting me asking if she could pick it up after work! Apparently that's not what she'd wanted her to do. I'm thinking she wanted me to drop it off so she could interrogate me as to whether I was coming back etc. NOT HAPPENING! I won't step foot in that place!
She's pulled Yvonne off of the front desk and she's strictly digital sales and accounting now. She says Boss B is making a complete mess of things!
Yvonne, now that her mother has passed and her X has nothing holding her here. I made her promise me that she would be out in no less than 6 months. Put the house up for sale and move to Sask to be closer to her daughter and grandbabies. She made gave me her promise. I told her I'll hold her to it!
If she leaves we've both dropped her on her ass and she'll have no choice but to shut down! She's got karma coming big time This would do it.

Good Morning, The scenery on your drive is gorgeous! So much open space. I just love that! Glad you finally got to take the drive! Sounds like Hubby had lots of work over the weekend! What does he do that he is on call like that? Migraines are so disabilitating. (is that a word?) I used to suffer from them, but have, (knock on wood), not had any episodes for a few years. I'm sorry you are suffering like that!

This weekend was quite relaxing for us. Indoor re-model project is done, so we are just enjoying the fruits of our labor for a while. Monday was ridiculous. I think the moon cycle is affecting folks. It was the most bizarre day from beginning to end. Started with a rather, out of the blue, ugly text. I was a bit blindsided by it, and then another one from another family member. So, off to work I went on the note of what just happened here....? Then work just was bizarre. Lots of drama, which was not necessary, a couple of temp workers, who work on the grounds crew walked off the job, people were fighting, it was just strange. And, the tip of the iceberg, about 8 pm last night, we ended up having no water. So had to go down to the basement of the funeral home and figure out what was going on! I would say I want a re-do for Monday, but actually I just want to forget that day completely!

Have a lovely rest of your week! Enjoy your garden and inside chores! emoticon

Alright, a brand new day! And NO migraine!

We have had a nice soaking rain during the night and this morning now, cooler temperatures with light cloud cover.

It'll be a full day for me as per the norm, cleaning, laundry, yard and writing.
I've had my first 2 cups of water with apple cider vinegar and my coffee with bone broth, so I'm ready to get started here.

And we did go for that drive. We left at 2 and returned at 6. A nice relaxed scenic drive. I just wish we would have had the sun.

Here are a few pictures.

In the meantime, I woke up at 3 with a splitter again but this time it was just from the way I was sleeping thank goodness. So one Advil and change of position and it was all but gone by the time I got up at 6:30 now But I took another Advil and now a hot coffee. Every once in a while...

So I'm doing up a few things here getting us breakfast and try to get outside for a bit before the rain. We're hoping the weather is decent to go for a nice scenic drive this afternoon. Right now Walt has a service call DANGH!

I best go get this man some breakfast before he has to head out.
OK Walt's off and running I'm going to get into a HOT shower and finish folding and putting away laundry from yesterday, sweep and mop floors and the lovely job of cleaning a cat box.

Good morning everyone. I didn't have a very good night last night. I went to bed with a headache that went into a full migraine that engulfed my entire head and eyes. Talk about blinding pain all night. So bad I could just barely lift my head off the pillow. I can't remember the last time I had a headache let alone a migraine! Thank god for a 12 hour Advil and a strong cup of coffee has all but gotten rid of it now!

I am definitely not a happy camper right now. So not impressed! It's just not fair. These guys that phone the shop at 5:20 expecting Walt to go out on a service call! But no instead of telling them they have to wait until Tuesday he has to go out today and more than likely it's an all day! Why should he have to go out while everybody else gets to enjoy a long weekend? I am so angry right now!

Ohhhhh...that sounds lovely, a picnic drive! Do enjoy! Please share your photos when you get back! I would love to see where you ended up driving! I haven't been to Canada since before 9/11 happened here in New York. And that's odd, as I live right on the border! Have a lovely weekend! Chat again soon!

Yeah, I'll have to do the same here shortly. I take my two small pups to the groomers for their yearly summer cuts and toenail trim.

It's a good start to the day today. My usual rising time at 5 am and I have a few things taken care of including a nice hot morning shower. I have a Dr appointment at 10 am. It was supposed to be the meeting to set up the paperwork to go from stress leave to medical EI. However, my therapist didn't submit the paperwork. So, for now, because my initial stress leave is ended in 5 days Dr is going to extend my stress leave until we can get all the paperwork finalized for the EI. So, that's where we're at for the time being.
After the appointment, I'll take care of lunch for Walt, do the banking and grocery shopping. We have the Victoria long weekend this weekend and Walt wants to pack a "picnic" lunch and go for a nice scenic drive just to get out of "Dodge". So that will be nice. I'll take the camera along and get some nice photography shots.

This morning Don is taking our Dog, Annie to the vet. She is due to have her teeth cleaned. I am so nervous for her. We've used this vet once before, and they were so kind, but still, I hate to have her go without us. It's a weird time, as we can't go in to the office, we just leave her with the nurse outside the door. emoticon I know she will do fine, but it still worries me....

Have a good day!

I'm excited for you. Getting so much done on your novel! What is your timeline for publishing? I am happy to say I am down 8 oz, this morning. I know it's not much, but I'm happy with it, considering what I've been eating lately...

Off to work! Have a great day with the writing, and the outdoor chores!

It looks like we had a good little rain during the night, but now the skies have all cleared off and at the moment at least there is no wind. Not even a breeze! The flag isn't even stirring! So with any luck, I just might get a few more things done outdoors this afternoon when temperatures warm up a bit. In the meantime I've gotten things done indoors; dishes done, floors swept and mopped, cat box cleaned and garbage and recycling out to the curb for pick up. Now I'm off to do some more writing. My novel is coming along just fine!

Well, I actually managed to scoop the mending out of the basket after Blue got out of it. Most of it is done now and I've thrown it through a wash. I'm waiting for it to dry. In the meantime, I made myself a couple of pieces of toast to have with blueberry yogurt mixed with nuts and seeds.

I have a meeting with the vehicle registration for 11 Need to get a plate for the trailer. While I wait for the time to come around I'm working on my novel.

Have yourself a great day!

What beautiful kitties! They definitely want the mending basket to remain "as is"!

Today is a rainy day. I put a pot of bean soup on this morning. Soaked the beans overnight, and started the soup this morning, actually. Tomorrow I have a farm box being delivered...I believe all the ingredients for chickpea taco's are in this one. Although I can't remember...oh yeah, and homemade jam! Which is a treat as we don't have a kitchen big enough to can or make homemade yummies!

My boss just came by and wants to go over new urn purchasing with me. I pushed him off until tomorrow. He wants all "local" made urns, at the very least USA made, that aren't available to the general public on Amazon. That is the most impossible task! I found local, as in Pacific Northwest urn makers, but of course they sell to the general public...who wouldn't? And all the urn suppliers that sell only to funeral homes have exactly the same stuff! UGH! Oh well...I guess we'll see how that meeting tomorrow goes.

Have a lovely day! emoticon

Bummer. I hate it when I do that! I've forgotten my phone at the workplace and don't realize it until I go to look for it. Luckily I only live a ten-minute walk from where I use to work. Needless to say, that won't be happening any more LOL

Well I got about halfway through the basket of mending when this happened LOL



So, I took that to mean "Mom go get those other things done for now." So I did. I got a load of laundry done up, bed made, dishes done, floors swept and mopped and the dusting done. He's still sleeping in the basket so I went and made my breakfast of boiled eggs and toast. He's still there and maybe for a while yet. So, I guess I'll go out and water my plants and do a few odds and ends that need doing. But before I do, I'll take out a couple of chicken breasts to thaw. thought I'd make chicken fried rice for supper tonight.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

What a beautiful tribute for Mom's on Mother's Day. Thank you for sharing that! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Sounds like you are on the right track. The writing is coming along nicely, chores being done, garden looking fantabulous...and you are even working on mending! I'm a little jealous over here!

I forgot my phone in my daughters car, so was without a phone all weekend. I must say it was rather quiet and nice! So, I got fed up with my hair. I wear a pixie. Out came the clippers this weekend, and I fixed it myself. Everybody seems to like it. I don't hate it...I just don't love it. My daughter, mid walk/visit, said to me...sooo....how did you manage to get your hair cut? LOL! She was quite jealous that I had found somebody. She thought maybe I had the mortician do it. I was close to letting him, but I have clippers, and have styled it myself, although until this weekend, it had been awhile.

I so over-indulged this weekend. It was ridiculous! But, I'm feeling like I have control again today...and am ready to be kind to myself and my body. I joined a stepbet. So I will be ultra focused on getting my steps the next 6 weeks. That is a start!

Hello from Seattle(ish)! I'm Embi!

When you finally learn that a person's behavior has more to do with their own internal struggle then it ever did with you, you learn grace.
