linda it is in the 60s here was supposed to rain all day and never did lol my daughters engagement pictures came out nice besides the rain, i will say a prayer for your family, the gift of veggies was very nice. and people will appreciate those letters, i went on a nice walk this morning and then read some, made terriake pork for supper with veggies and rice , talked to my mom for awhile so that was good. thanks for the encouragement of my blogs i love to write just harder now,especially the editing . when I read the book needs to be so close it is part of my nose, lol every day i see different so I like it when I wake up and see what i can see. Have a great day and both of you have a great night and a better tomorrow Hugs

Daughter and Son-by-love are pretty confident al is well - their dogs are vaccinated and the coon appeared healthy - he just was on the dog's turf and he was eliminated!
I enjoyed your new blog - you have a gift of writing inspirational notes!
Sure am missing our Bonnie - hope she finds her way back to us soon .

A good day for us - business getting done in the office, letters and notes getting written - meeting needs of a dear family in our church, adult son with brain cancer and starting second phase of treatment - we took garden veggies for her to use in making juice for him - gave hugs of encouragement and prayed with her. Home to computer time and more encouragement letters to niece that just lost her husband and so many others in our circle f friends and aquaintances that just need to know someone out here cares about them.

got 5000 steps in today - happy about that

Forecast is 24 degree for tonight - our area forgot to have fall - went straight to winter!

HaHa I often get mixed up where to write what - sharing our lives and encouragment is what is important!!!

Good for my heart today - liquids in, steps done and scales were down this morning - happy dance!!!

Daughter called with story of their night adventure - their dog woke them at 4am and they could tell he was fighting something - SIL went out with gun in hand and could not find the dog for 20 minutes then he came covered in blood - they showered him off and not a scratch on him!!! the blood was all from whatever he fought with - they found a dead coon this evening - so brave and good fighting dog. thankful all turned out well - adds a bit of concern for raising tiny little one there [due in January] but thankful for protective dog!

Have a good Wednesday.

Joanne, so fun to find nice things like photos when you clear a cabinet or bin or other area of house. I am in a bit of rebellion about any and all work lately - did about an hour of kitchen work this morning then sat down to computer work and brother dropped in - It's been almost a year since he has been here - though we talk and visit at his house about once a month. He had gone elk hunting with friends and high altitude and deep snow got his heart too tired - so they had to bring him down to hospital - irregular rythym straightened out after a couple of hours but not released to return to high altitude. So good to see him looking good and checking in with local Dr today for follow-up. Good report this evening too. then to the village for meeting and got banking done - nice to not have to do it tomorrow when we go for Dr appointment . Looking forward to good report there too. Have a terrific Tuesday!

linda good decision i beat she will be pleased to have a visit later when all others have gone on with their lives, glad you got to wear your fall sweater and chicken and sweet potatoes so yummy , today was another blah day here no sun and drizzly. I did my walk in the morning, Have noticed with less money it is harder to make healthy decisions, today was eggs peppers and onions and potatoes for breakfast, lunch i took two can of progreso soup and added rice and a can of green bean . way to much sodium. dinner was chicken legs breaded with rosemary and italian seasoning more rice and canned carrots and peas. wish o had the money for fresh veggies and chicken breast, but we did enjoy our anniversary trip, no snacks in the house so thats a good thing. Bonnie i hope you are well miss hearing from you but understand hope your both doing well and as healthy as you can, on the plus side i cleaned out a cabinet found our engagement photo and some nice candles, have a great night and a better tomorrow, Hugs

Have made our decision to not make the trip - will write letter of encouragement tomorrow and try visit her and my sister-in-law when my daughter can go with me and will divide the trip into shorter segments and also be a more personal visit.

This has been a nice day, got to wear fall sweater to church with new necklace and earrings - felt pretty! Good sermon, meeting afterward for elder visiting ministry and thankful it is moving forward even if I want it faster!

Home to chicken breast salad and sweet potato fingerlings - nummy!

Then computer afternoon and then a nap in between - Life is good in retirement and market season done.

We are debating if we should try to go to nephew's funeral - it would be a five hour drive then the service and 5 hours back home and part in the dark so are thinking we have to do a motel if we go and also get a dog sitter - and then we had planned to spend this weekend with daughter and SIL - but in different direction so just too much travel and tiredness for us. will wait and see after we sleep on the thoughts and heck with other family members from this end of the state to see if they are going. The are younger and might do the driving and let us pay for the gas.

Good sleep last night has to be the good thing I did for my heart today - as my steps were low and food was high. Have a great day - I love the reading you are accomplishing - I need to start using my elliptical and stationary bike so I get in some reading!! Blessing of a great Sunday tomorrow.

linda those waffles sound so good and good for you. so sorry for the loss of your husbands niece . I will pray for her, yesterday on my walk i forgot to tell you I saw a whirlwind of colorful leaves in a yard . Just whirling around way up high .when i circled around again and looked at the same yard the leaves were all green so nice of our Lord to give me such a pretty sight, Today walk was nice and cool, I finished another book. a friend of the husband came and helped out with the downstairs shower , he released three clogs down there and will be back tomorrow for another try, all the pipes in the house flow through one and most are underground so that makes for a fun time. but hope fully tomorrow i can do the wash and such again, leftovers for supper . hope you girls have a great night and a better tomorrow, Hugs,

Just kind of putzed around today - did about three hours of office work but mostly just sorting and thinking and kept pausing to pray for my niece in the loss of her husband - wondering how she is doing - they live clear across the state so I can't go to her - just thinking, supporting and loving from afar. She has a special needs daughter in middle school and has good support system in her home town and church. Lots of family grief in the last couple years so just needs lots of love and support.

I didn't get any canning or kitchen work done but tomorrow is another day.
Made really nummy waffles this morning - called chaffles - an egg whipped together with 1/3 cup grated cheese - into waffle griddle for 5minutesanddone!! excellent Gluten free and no carb - with just a little homemade peach syrup and DELICIOUS!!!

Oh my, sewer systems are such a frustrating problem - are you on town system or all private ? So sorry and pray you can get it fixed quickly and simply.

I didn't work on food stuff today - did sort out some of my summer clothes and tucked them away - going to need a new pair of slacks for the winter - I wear jumpers in the house most of the time but need slacks when I go out in the cold - I ache too bad if I get cold. Also would like a couple long-sleeved t-shirts for under the jumpers.

Really enjoyed the trip through the market - so fun to talk to people, other vendors and customers and just local town people - but I got achey legs and ready to come home before Hubs was ready!! So sat down on low bench then could not get up - Fred had to pull me up! Then hobbled to the car - but still happy that we went! Getting more in the mood to hibernate every day!!

Linda, Definiitely praying for your daughter :
Father, reach across the miles and touch Linda's beautiful daughter. Give her courage as she awaits the results of this biopsy.May she feel your loving arms around her and find comfort and joy in your presence. And may she feel the healing touch of your hands - the hands of the Great Physician in her heart, her mind and her body. Amen.

Praying and thanking God that your health is improving too and that you are able to rest more and enjoy retirement without the pressure of the summer's schedule.

Joanne, I feel bad for not being on here as much these days.It seems the days go so fast with s many things to to to keep up with the kids. I'm not young enough to keep up with them any more. LOL! Just letting you know You are also in my thoughts and prayers, Dear Friend.
If I were closer, we would definitely be sharing tea and exercising together. i would drive you places too! emoticon

Tomorrow I see my cardiologist for a check up in the morning. Then I will see my primary care doctor in the afternoon. Busy day Thankfully there are no problems right now, just wellness checks.

Hope you gals have a good day full of lots of love and laughter!

Bonnie
With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment. Always let him lead you, and he will clear the road for you to follow. Proverbs 3:5-6 (CEV)

Keep praying for daughter - Dr called and she has to have wider surgical removal of tissue - so worried about how this will affect her spirits and pregnancy. And then how the pregnancy will affect the "pre-cancer growth" - she fears the pain and yet does not want to take meds because of the baby - pray for wisdom, courage and faith that God is in control.

Dear Joanne, It makes me sad when one I care for feels they have no friends. I am blessed with many on facebook, on Spark and in the world of my church, my community and yet I feel so distant from my family [as in my siblings, relatives and of course the estranged son.] But even there I am blessed with wonderful husband and daughter so I ask and sometime feel guilty - "why am I so blessed?" so I am glad that Bonnie and I are true friend for you - yes, if we were in the same town we would be having tea, going shopping together, maybe doing our walking together and those kinds of things - but we are close in sharing our daily lives and needs and dreams here. Hugs for you dear one.
My daughter says she is feeling better about the biopsy today - more ready to deal with whatever the Dr says - and in less physical pain since they did a dressing change on the incision. my puffy legs are still puffy but not painfully so and not scary like they were a week ago and blood pressure is back to my normal. our weather I crazy - was summer and then went straight to November -like cold and SNOW in the hills and LOTS of snow in the mountains of Washington and Idaho. We are secure, have electric heat with back up wood stove. a little concerned if power out several days would affect our freezer of food - trying to plan and think positive. I wish there was a way to "squirrel away" some of my heart meds!

linda i will pray for your daughter and you too that its not cancer and that your puffiness goes away, someone wrote a blog yesterday there was a quote on this site something about if you have one friend than you have more than your share, she went on to write how she works hard to keep her friends and why should one be enough , and others agreed with here, having no friends ( except you two here ) it really hurt me reading this and i have been depressed since then .no clue why i have no friends and the ones i had left, not sure how one blog effected me so . i am sure i will get over it in a few days. but so happy you tow are here to share our days with , would like to think if we lived closer we would be over for tea and stuff. oh well Have a good day and a better tomorrow, Bonnie hope you are well think of you both often ,Hugs

Weight and health challenge is going well - Day #5 and down another .2 pound but feet are looking good in the morning and then buffy at night - Sp tracker says I got more potassium than sodium today - wonder how accurate that is since it varies so much with different brands and home cooking. But I am thinking about it at least and checking lables and learning another phase of health.

New prayer request and concern - my daughter [yes the pregnant one] has many moles and several have turned real dark - she had one biopsied today and is so scared they are caner. Has to wait a week for results and has been crying all day. Pray for peace, faith and for clear report. Dr. did not explain anything so will have to do some research on my own so I know how to encourage her - for tonight just reminded her God is in control and knows what goes before and after our times of fear.

Must get to bed - thanks for being here for my Mama prayers and progresses.

Hi girls! I'm not sure where the time went the last couple of days. I know Yesterday was extremely busy for me - PT in the AM, home to babysit Gracie while Cammie went to the courthouse to file for child support for the girls from their dad. After lunch, I went to McD's to have coffee with a friend and after supper, it was Open House at GAbby's school. I wouldn't have missed that for the world. Needless to say I was in bed early!

Linda, that hidden salt and sugar is so hard to keep track of, but you're doing well to watch it so carefully. I added salt/sodium to the nutrients that the SP food tracker records and some days am amazed at how much there is!I'm glad your markets are done for this season. I can hear the relief in your post. Now you will have more time to enjoy the preparations for the new grand baby!

Joanne, NCIS was a cliff hanger the other night. And I realy like to watch Bull....Tonight is 5-O Yay! i'm glad the new season premiers are finally here! I never tried fig jam, but I do like a bit of jam and peanut butter on pancakes. LOL!

Love you gals and keep up the good work with the monitoring and making healthy choices. Sending lots of love and encouragement today!

Feet are puffy again tonight but don't hurt like thy did yesterday - I should have picked up on the high sodium in canned meats that we have been enjoying- opted to have chicken I had baked myself so I know how much salt is in it!! Salad dressing is kind of high too - Live and learn!! Will just keep trying.

Joanne, keep up your walking - you amaze me! Would like to be able to go for long walks again some day but no longer expect it.

Concerned about amount of swelling in lower legs and feet - going to start recording sodium and see if there is a concern - blood pressure is up a wee bit for me although within acceptable limits from Dr. May have to wear support stockings again if thy don't even out soon. At least are past the hot weather before I 'need' them.

Bonnie, The forgotten nito gets us in trouble every time doesn't it!! - I have forgotten only three times but all three were crises and took a few days to perk back up ...I take the long acting nitro each morning. Then the regular if "tight to fear or doomfeeling" and the only times I have had to take the regular is the three times I forgot the long acting little mediset by bathroom sink so I see it many times during the day and might be an hour late but not miss it completely.

Joanne - sorry about the fire scare - hubs has to learn new stricter safety rules for your eye sight.. Love your bird sightings - would be fun to keep a running list of those you see. I'm a wee bit jealous of you getting to see cardinals - I love them and they NEVER fly here in the pacific northwest.

First day of the fall season for us and no more Farmer's markets this year. I have felt a lightness of heart about that today - burden lifted without the schedule deadlines to keep.
Life is good and I am thankful.

Joanne, IT sounds like it may have been a blue jay. I bet those orange finches are pretty too. It did get pretty warm here today too, but then it rained and cooled off again. I got a batch of tomatoes today and. I'm very happy about that! They are very ripe and getting a bit soft, but they are perfect for soup. Your soup with the escarole and broccoli sounds perfect! Glad you're ok after your scary bacon grease fire! Take care - it sounds like you have some challenges and adapting to do in the kitchen. I will be praying for you and hoping Darren will help.

Linda, you had a really good day yesterday! I'm praying for many more like that. Hoping you do well on the 2 week challenge and that your results reflect the hard work you will put into it. Without the stress of the markets - you should be able to do really well.

I had a bit of difficulty in PT this morning. - shortness of breath and tightness in the chest. Then I realized I didn't take my nitro right before the session.I stopped and took it and it helped. Glad I see the cardiologist on Wednesday next week. Otherwise things are going well. Sending lots of love, hugs and encouragement your way!

Joanne do you keep a journal of all the birds you see on your walks? Glad you were able to spot him and really glad you took care when you were searching him out. It's a learning curve to have to be mindful of the way you move so that you can do things safely. I love the coloring of blue jays, but i've heard they can be a bit mean to other birds. i love to see the cardinals. We have several around here. that we can see all year long, though more often we see the females rather than the pretty red males.

Yum - it's a chicken soup week! Yay for getting your soup made this week. I think asking for help is the hardest things for me to do, but it's good to know there is someone at home to help you when you need it.

Linda, hope yuo had a great Sunday and you'r keeping up with your healthy eating and resting. as needed. I hope your market day was good yesterday as well.

It is a very warm day here today. Staying indoors and keeping cool today. I love it that it that there hasn't been a frost yet so the area gardens will keep on producing at least a little. Yesterday at the farmers market I bought 10 peppers to make some stuffed peppers and chop up the rest to freeze. I also got 3 zucchini, a spaghetti squash, some tomatoes for my neighbor. The farmer we usually buy from will only be there one more saturday. emoticon I have to find somewhere to get some apples for applesauce yet. Hope I can find some free ones!

Have a good day gals! Sending lots of love, hugs and encouragement your way.

Joanne, I am saddened to hear about your eyesight taking a downward turn. I'm praying for the inflamation to diminish so that the sight might improve if possible and that you won't have so much pain with it. Hopefully Darren won't move too many items to different places. With my daughter and the girls here, they move EVERYTHING on me and I've made a mess more than once.LOL! Glad you are continuing to enjoy your walks and keeping your attitude positive. Love ya, dear Friend.

Linda - good news to hear that you've been able to save what you need for the winter. Thanking God for that as well as for your growing season almost done. Take care to pace yourselves for the remainder of the fall work and so glad you can enjoy the peacefulness of the winter season. IT is a good time to concentrate on you!

Girls, i just have one word for the trip to Sight and Sound theater yesterday - AMAZING! I've never been to a play on Brooadway, but I imagine this production was of similar quality. The background projections and the live props of buildings and hillsides, created life-like scenes onstage and the quality of the singing and acting was wonderful! The production was "Jesus" and portrayed many of the Bible stories from his life, woven together in such a way that the Bible came to life right there onstage.. They portrayed his personality as vibrant, alive, full of joy - often laughing with his disciples and so personable and compssionate. The most fun part of the day for me was when the trip hostess assigned me the end seat right on the right side of the center aisle. The performers (and the animals in the play) entered and exited their scenes right down those aisles, making the auduence feel so much a part of it all! A large camel, a horse ridden by a Roman soldier , several goats and sheep, and Jesus riding on a white donkey passed mere feet from my seat! If you want to see a bit of what I saw, the trailer for the production can be found by googling Sight and Sound Theater - Jesus. The bus trip was long, but fun. We had 2 great meals - one at the Capitol Diner in Harrisburg for lunch and the other at the Hershey Farm Restaurant served family style for supper. The driver was accomodating to me and the other handicapped woman on the trip as the bus had a wheelchair lift. I would go again in a heart beat!

Have a wnderful evening and a good day tomorrow girls! Sending love, hugs and prayers your way!

Joanne, I am saddened for your eyesight diminishing - praying you are learning all the techniques to help if it fails more - Momma loved her books on tape and used the computer with the biggest font and bold print - the most important thing to her was to see the pictures of the grandkids so we enlarged them and then showed them on movie screen.The family had to learn to not move things in the house and the little dog stayed out of her way - the dark cat would be a concern for not seeing and tripping. Love you girl and delight in your positive thinking and Doing!

We are happily winding down our harvest and market season - both sets of "envelopes" did get the minimum amount saved for the winter - now to pace the garden clean up and fall house work and look forward to peaceful winter. My blood sugars are running higher than I want them and scales creeped back up a few pounds so will get diligent with diet and back to exercise bike starting Monday.

Life is full, too busy but fairly contnt.

hi girls hope you can read this linda glad your market days are winding down and hope your sugar get more under control, Bonnie hope the kids and family are doing well and you continue to heal and get stronger, Me i had a lot of eye pain and redness last night that means my uvetitus is back, my eye sight has diminished yet again but maybe when the inflammation goes down it might possibly return,I did take some alleve and have been soaking it with warm water , i also get styes so warm water is best. i was two minutes slower on my walk but I could still do okay as long as I didnt hang out to much in the shade. i can still read if i hold the book mere inches from my face. Same with computer, made fish and pasta with veggies, Darren moved the direction of the trash barrel on me. so i thought i was throwing away the plate with the breadcrumbs instead they were all over the floor, lol misha loved it, i will have to be more vigilant especailly with the black cat underneath staying positive have a great night Hugs

Joanne, I know what you mean - I hate seeing litle kids at the bus stop wearing light clothes on a cold day. Cammie dresses Gabby in layers because her room is hot once she gets to school, but the bus is cold. She is allowed to take off her pants if she has shorts underneath or she can keep her jacket on if its cool. We are able to watch for the bus from our kitchen window - when it goes out on the main road and stops across the highway, we know we have about 5 minutes before it circles back and comes down our side road.

Dan's paents are buried in a little cemetery out of the way - I wouldn't be able to find it if I tried. LOL! But it was nice that Darren was able to get the directions so you could visit his mom's grave.

We went to the Methodist church last night for their monthly free community supper. It was lasagna and so good. The girls went too because the church also had their "diaper Depot". Gracie wears pull ups to bed and Cammie was able to get some. Gabbie came out with a halloween costume - a witch outfit. Fun, fun. Tonight I will finally get the ranch chicken and tater tots done for dinner.

Linda, rest up today and stay warm and hydrated. I don't like it when the fall comes with cold rains, though I do like the crisp weather and the smell of wood burning stoves in the air. Praying you have a good day today!

Joanne, I'm so glad you had a great trip and made it home ok. It was nice that you got to stop at the cemetery and that you were able to get a great breakfast. That restaurant sounds amazing! It's always good to be able to find a nice place with reasonable prices AND great good! It'a great that they will be expanding. Yay!Hope you get all caught up and have a great day today!

Cammie's "date" went well last night. The guy seems to be kind and thoughtful. Time will tell if things work out. But I hope she takes it slow. She has an eye appointment today so I will babysit Gracie again for an hour or two. She's really good when she's alone.Yesterday I cleaned the laundry room and made room for the girls to have a little playhouse in there. They have a bean bag chair, a baby doll crib, table and chairs and a little play kitchenette. They loved it so much they played there for an hour after Gabby got home from school. Then they wanted to eat suppper there, using their play dishes. LOL All was going well, when the dog escaped. emoticon He is pretty good in his old age - her took a run aroung the back yard, down to the tree line and ended up in the front yard before they caught him. Whew! This morning the ranch chicken is in the crock pot and will taste good for supper tonight.

Have a good day girls - sending lots of hugs, smiles and prayers for a healthy, happy day!

Joanne, it sounds like a beautiful, wonderful place.- and you do sound content. I love that you got to walk along the beach and even though the hot tub is outside, it still sounds like fun. LOL! I hope you enjoy your remaining days there!

Linda, Oh my - Christmas shopping! So glad you are off to a good start, Tree ornaments sound like a nice idea; I intended to make an ornament for each of the grands for Christmas with the date but haven't gotten around to it..... Oh well! I hope you have some good weather and profitable but easy days for your remaining markets. Thinking of you !

Some days are harder than others with the girls. The little ones were especially difficult today, not wanting to listen at church and then refusing to sit in their car seats and buckle up this afternoon when I had to go to a friend's house. Even though it was only a short distance, I knew if I gave in and let them do what they wanted, it would be harder the next time so we had a little battle of wills. Some things aren't important, but their safety in the car is and I wouldn't give in.. I won and ended up going alone, but it was a very stressful. afternoon.Fortunately, the evening went much better.

Hope you gals have a Marvelous Monday! Sending lots of love, hugs and prayers!
