Good morning everyone, we had a beautiful spring day yesterday. Spent most of it outside enjoying the warm sunshine and fresh air. Today is supposed to be warmer ar 70°.  I took my book and went and sat on the porch and it was not long before I put the book away because some others decided to sit on the porch, too. Wonderful afternoon with talk and laughs.

JENNY  like you seemed so surprising to know it was Palm Sunday and Easter is almost here. Like your Seenager. I will copy it and share it.

JUNE  I only lay on the couch to rest my back. I do that a couple of times a day, better than taking another pain pill.

SANDY  love that big smile on Fee. She is adorable.

JANE  my children grew up wwith me changing the furniture around often so they never made any comments.  In this apartment I do not have much choice. I would love to change my bedroom arouns but cannot. Bed has to be near the emergency pull cord, one of the rules here.

MARY ANN  feels great to go outside without a winter jacket on doesn't it?

JOY  like you I was never adventurous but loved being in the water at the ocean or lake.

GLORIA de  like you I spent most of yesterday out on the porch here. Was great seeing a few others here get out of their apartments, too. I will be out there again today when my CNA leaves. Tomorrow is to be warmer but I have a dentistt appointment but will stay outside when I get home.

JANE  I have been watching more on MeTV lately. Lot of the old ones we used to enjoy. Better than what is on regular TV these days.

JENNY  like you almost every week I moved furniture around. No one ever complained, they were used to it.

AMY  glad you finally had an easy day yesterday. About time.

JANE for sure you do not want your fur babies to meet up with a skunk.

Good Morning Everyone!

We are suppose to have some rain today and tomorrow with possible severe thunderstorms.  I noticed in paper this morning they are marking the anniversary of the Rocksprings tornado 90 years ago.  It is suppose to be the 3rd worst tornado every to strike in Texas killed 70 people.  Rocksprings is not a very large pace up in the hill country..

I have a busy day ahead, have to take care into body shop to have it repaired and then later I have a doctors appointment at BMAC (Big military hosp)  I hope I don't have to walk very far, if I do it will take me forever.  Got to find where I have to go when I get there.  Steve, my SIL, is taking me and he is good at finding the way.

Gloria it was nice to hear you got some fresh air and companionship instead of staying couped up in your room for a change.

I watched some of the Masters yesterday, up until almost the end, then we had to go over the Granddaughters for supper and their TV cable was out so didn't get to see the finish.  Happy for Sergio and I know he is happy to have his green jacket and of course the 1.9 million that goes with it.

Everyone have a great day.

Hi everyone.  We are in for another very pleasant, sunny and warm day here in South Carolina.  We had another nice, although short visit yesterday at lunchtime with our step grandson and his family before they left to return to their home near Atlanta.  I did go to Sunday School as I had made a commitment to bring the devotional so I went but didn't stay for church.  On the way home I stopped at Krogers and got three large subs, potato salad and cole slaw and a big bag of various small bags of chips for our lunch.  It was quick and easy.  It wasn't the best lunch but it served the purpose.  As soon as they left I laid down but got involved in the golf tournament and couldn't go to sleep.  Needless to say I went to bed early last night.

This morning I emptied the dishwasher and fixed Pat's breakfast.  Pat had ordered some new Corelle dishes to replace the plates, etc, that we had been using.  They came yesterday so I unpacked them this morning and got all but two sets in the dishwasher.  The other two sets I will wash by hand for use this evening for our dinner.  I also need to grate a pound of cheese and make more sausage muffins for Pat's breakfast.  However, I needed to rest so am now in my office doing that as I write in the discussions.  If I am not too tired I will attend my noontime meeting and then stop at Costco for a few items on the way home.  That will be it for today. 

Hal, sorry about the mix up in names between you and Don.  I am finding I often am thinking one name or word and speak or write something else. 

Gloria, I did enjoy my visit with my friends on Friday but am beginning to think it is something we won't be doing much longer but will wait and see.  Seeing my step grandson really was a big surprise since it had been seven years. 

Jenny, it seems like you just got home from Austin.  I am sure your willingness to doggie sit is appreciated.  That will be a nice vacation for your son and his wife. 

June, I was just teasing you about the Easter eggs as knew you were just enjoying watching the little ones. 

Sandy, there was a nice tribute to Arnold Palmer on Saturday as well as yesterday.  He certainly helped make the Master's the huge success it is today. 

JaneS, other than having a concern for your moving the furniture by yourself I would be willing to bet they will be happy for you to put it where you want it after living with the other arrangement. 

Joy, I am like you in being pretty sure that being in the water wind surfing would not be something I would care to do.  I was born and raised a long way from the oceans and lakes.  We did have a farm pond but I didn't get into it.  We did have a little creek through our farm and did on occasion wade in the stream but it was never high except during the rainy season.

deAngel, sitting on your porch and enjoying the nice day sounds like it would be fun.  Like you my mother would usually move things around during the spring and fall housecleaning, which was something she did every year. 

Jenny, nice that Diane's family to host a special dinner for Diane and your father's birthday. 

Gloria, nice to see you were able to enjoy time on the porch visiting other residents.  Laughing I find always raises my spirits.  We now have a couple of channel on our satellite that are showing the old programs.

YIPPEE,  finally some good news to share from Joe, about Our Joan.

Update on Mom (Joan Lavelle)

Mom has made really good slow progress in the two weeks since I last saw her.  After getting tremendous care in the ICU at Viera Hospital for ~3 weeks, she was transferred last week to Kindred Hospital Melbourne, which has great specialized respiratory "step down" expertise. 

They have been slowly weaning her off the vent and it has been over 30 hours since she was last on it.  The key milestone will be at 72 hours.  At that point, they will remove the vent from her room.

When I arrived this morning she was eating "real food" for the first time and was in really great spirits.  She is now talking freely and is fully alert and aware. 

Visitors/calls are welcome.  She is in room 236.

We expect that she will be at Kindred for a couple more weeks and then most likely a re-hab facility for some period of time. We hope to move her to Fairhope soon after that.

I will let her give future updates.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers! In this case they were heard and answered!
Joe

Good afternoon, on a very pleasant day Sun is shinning and no wind, quite warm'

I had to come in here after reading the wonderful news about Joan.  Our prays are being answered. We will still have to keep praying. thanks for posting Jenny.

My mother use to move the furniture, every 6 months, she said to save wear and tare on the carpet. Other wise the same traffic would wear a hole in it.  The curtains were also taken down and put on that ugly stretcher. I had to help with that, and my hands showed it. Spring and Fall cleaning were a big deal in those days. Windows had to be cleaned inside and out. Which I still did until a few years ago.
  Also to save the carpet on some Friday nights when I had my friends in my mother would roll back the carpet, and we would dance and sing to her playing the piano or we played the Victrola  Mother then would make hot chocolate and cake. It did not take much to make us keds happy in those days.

Good Monday Morning my friends. My day started at 6a.m. with a thyroid pill, a B.P. check and pills to take after the wait with the thyroid pill. So, I did all my massage that is helping my blood flow to arms and legs and feet. Then my day continued with Readings from three more books and the Bible and a hymn, and now here I am.

Jenny, I thank you so much my dear  one for the daily check on news of our Bis. It means a lot to know you are helping us out in this way.Your roasted pork loin sounds sooo good. They have it here occasionally but it is not the same as I did it with garlic and caraway seed. They are very cautious with spices it seems, and now I couldn't have the seeds anyway, so I have learned to adjust. (almost). I'm hoping for my 93rd. in Nov. I could have been your mother, Jenny.

Amy, you have such lucky dogs. Your heart must be overflowing with goodness…you do so much for those you love…even the neighbors dogs.

Janie, maybe you could just open the door and bang a couple of pot lids together to scare away any skunks. That would save you a trip around the yard and a possible spraying. P. U. !!!!!!!!

Gloria, I am so glad you are enjoying nice weather now. I know you like being outside,and I know you like to visit with your neighbors,so hopefully the good weather stays with you all.

Hal, you do have a busy schedule today, and I pray you can get it all done with the least amount of pain. And I thank God for Steve !!You need a young man in your life. You are surrounded by females. I again have two fine sons, and so thankful for my two DILs.

Larry you had a busy Sunday morning for sure, and the lunch you picked up at Krogers sounds good. You can't miss with a subway..they have just about everything in them. The Easter eggs were plastic, filled with candies Larry. If they were hard boiled eggs I would have grabbed a couple. I never turn down a hard boiled egg.

Jenny….ALLELUIA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And thank you Joe !!!!  I am SO happy for this good news our BIs/Joan. She is talking and eating…..WONDERFUL !!! Thank you God !! Thank you Jenny, and Thank you God!!!!!!

Jenny, that is great news about Joan and I'm sorry she still has to be away for so long, but if that is what it takes to get back to where she was, we'll accept it.

Gloria d, you mentioned carpets and it reminded me of ours in the house where I grew up.  We had one bathroom and it was upstairs.  We kids played in the sandpile beside our house; no house was there for several years.  If anyone wanted to go to the bathroom, they would use ours and we had to go from the NW corner of the rug to the SE corner to get to the stairs.  When my folks turned the rug, the line from the front door was the same regardless of which way the rug was placed. 

I replaced batteries in two clocks today and the bird clock is going to confuse the cat.  I could not get the bird call lined up with the correct bird, but that won't make a difference.  The chime clock is the one I listen to for time, not the birds.

We are enjoying another beautiful day.  I even opened my window last night.

Good "Noonday",

Hooray for the encouraging report on Joan!

I'm cooking again.  When I delivered the other food,  I brought home a chuck roast and 2 pounds of ground beef from son's freezer.

This afternoon, I'm going to do the roast and potatoes in the slow cooker;  will rub the roast with brown gravy mix, add some onion and use beef broth for the liquid.
Son/dil aren't fond of carrots so I'll make some scalloped corn.
Will deliver this tomorrow

For Thursday's delivery, I'll make the ground beef into old-fashioned meat loaf (a/k/a "nothing fancy added") and rice/meatballs browned and covered with cream of potato soup before baking.  "Go-withs" will be twice-baked potatoes for the meat loaf - and baked beans for the rice/meatballs.
These were two of my Mother's  "everything goes in the oven at the same time" meals.

I also plan to do some green beans/bacon/onion in the crock pot.

Son likes banana pudding, so that will be the dessert.  If I have time/energy, I'll try to bake some bar cookies.

I may not cook again until........who knows when?   ;D

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable and Merry Monday.

HOORAY!!! The news from Joanie is GOOD NEWS!  Whatever it takes bring her back to us, we'll wait for!  That was news worth reading!

We were told that if we had to use the bathroom wherever we were, we were to come home and use our own.  And I did a lot of running when I was little.  I didn't want to miss anything so I usually waited until the last minute.  Then I had to hurry back when I was finished so I could catch up with the Red Rover or Kick the Stick games.

I decided what to do with my day today.  I'm "putzing"!  That means that when I'm finished, I probably won't be able to see what I did but a lot of little stuff will have been accomplished.

You are truly an Angel for doing all that wondrous tasty cooking for your DIL and son.
It sounds SO tasty, I can almost smell it. God Bless you !

I am doing nothing today. It is a day off for sure. I plan to go down for lunch..I have a taste for and egg salad sandwich of which I will take half home for supper. Plus any extras that appeal to me..like soup and salad and dessert.

I'm picturing Bis eating real food and chewing and digesting and healing. YAY !!!!!!

Janie, we had outside privies when I was growing up, so it was easy to reach from where we played games. When I would roller skate from one end of town and back again I never needed to "go"...must have sweated it out.

Yippieeeeeee, nice to hear good news on Joan!!

We went to the Dr and he wanted to change some of hubby's meds....but....these are meds the  ones the cardiologist put him on and we won't do anything till talking with her. This Dr is only standing in till they can get a replacement for our own Dr.

Wood box is filled , won't be long till that is a job put away till fall.

Callie. your making me hungry with your cooking!!!

June, I love an egg salad sandwich with onions in it..

Mary Ann. my window has been open also....so nice to have the fresh air blow in.

Jenny, thank you so much.I think we are all on the edge of our seats waiting on news about Joan.

Jane, so far I have been lucky with no perfume puddycats entering our yard. Our one dog did get sprayed once .....that was nasty!!!

Better see what I can scare up for supper..

That was good news about Joanie.  I know she must be grinning and glowing.  Maybe she will get on the computer in a few days.

Well I got all my jobs finished today.  Got the car turned in to be repaired and got in to see my Oncologist on time and found him to be a really nice person.  East to talk to and interested in what I had to say.  He had some good news, in a way, he said he was 70 percent sure that it was cancer on my kidney, but, it was small and hadn't grown in the past year and he didn't think it was going to cause me any problems.  He also prescribed some meds for my "sleepless" night problem but ask what kind of glaucoma I had and if it was acute not to take the meds that they would do more harm than good.  So I called my eye doc's office and I don't have the acute but the other type which the meds want bother.  So I will pick the meds up tomorrow.  Of course he run a test and wants me to do another one which I have to schedule.

Everyone have a great evening.

We just had a dandy T storm, one that put the put right from the floor to my lap!! She doesn't think much of the thunder boomers and we may get more tonight.

Love the smell of a Spring rain..

Good Evening Everyone...

Just checking in to say that I am happy to hear that Joan is improving and looking to get off that vent....

Also to hear that she may be moving to  Fairhope,  Alabama ...     Closer to her children.     I know that the thoughts of moving can be overwhelming,  but I bet that she will be up for that ....  and that they will find a way to move her with the least bit of stress... 

I see that Fairhope is right on the coast of Mobile Bay... 
Cool!!   

Have a good evening Everyone,  and Joanie if you check
in,  HUGS to you.

Hal, I'm so happy you got some good news for a change, seems like you have had more doctoring than normal, and that can really be demoralizing. God is answering our prayers, for sure.

Amy I think you are wise in not changing any medications till you see your cardiologist. Drs. seem to throw medications around like popcorn, and this one is not familiar with husbands problems and personality like your other doctor is. I too Love the aroma of a Spring rain...we had them in Mn. and it was so bracing after a long cold winter.  We don't have those types of storms in So. Ca. We have rain, but it is either too much or too little.

We had rain this evening, then a storm and then a tornado warning.  Actually, the warning was south of us and has now moved east.  I heard there is a storm moving from the south, but whether or not it will get to our location, I don't know.  We live about two miles north of the city limits.  We've had temperatures in the 70s all afternoon which is unbelievable.

JUNE, that was a good suggestion to clang pot lids to chase away the skunks but unfortunately, I can't do that for two reasons.  #1 my pot lids are all tempered glass and they wouldn't make much noise except for the glass shattering...and #2 if they did make a lot of noise, my (very close) neighbors would probably get up a petition to make me move because I woke them up.  Oh yes, and if I should happen to scare the skunk, he just might spray and nobody would like that.   :D ;D :2funny:

Good morning everyone..

Apparently the second storm came around last night, I was all set to tell you that all we got was rain but hubby just asked me if I heard the 3 booms of thunder. Slept right through I did!!

Need to pick up a script for hubby this morning and then I think some cleaning of the pantry will be done and take stock of what all is in there.

I like the fact that Joe said Joan is making progress...even if it is slow, it is still progress..

Better shake a leg here and get moving..

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I've been having a frustrating week and when I got up this morning, I breathed a prayer that "something good would happen today".  It already did.  I found my lost license and my Medicare ID card!  He is watching over me.  Today will be a good one because He is with me! :) :) :) :)

Hi everyone on a bright and sunny day.  It looks like we will get up to about 82 today.  Not feeling very peppy today and guess I just got overtired yesterday.  It doesn't take much anymore to do that to me.  I did not get to Costco yesterday and Pat plans to go with me this morning. However, I have decided I just don't feel up to going this morning and maybe we can do it later this afternoon. This afternoon after 3 pm I will drive down to Walmart to pick up another online grocery order.  I sure love this method of buying groceries.  I will take the rest of the day quietly.

Jenny, that is certainly an encouraging update on Joan.  I am really glad to see that her family plans on getting her over to where they live when she is able to stand the trip.

Good Day All,  The sun is shining on the ravine and I am wondering if the rabbit family living under our concrete slab next to the house is out and about.  They sure must feel safe from the coyotes who live in the ravine and make their noise whenever sirens sound. 

Quilting is tonight and I need to stay home instead - then, another meeting on Tues and one on Wed - thinking of dropping something because no one comes to cook and clean here.  We adjusted to the higher altitude well this year and we had been away since last October.  Now, both of us have allergies because of the low snowfall - very dry.

the automatic set on both the coffee pot and the thermostat didn't work this morning. 

Good news is that we are invited to daughter's home for weekend - sad news is that so many people are moving here, it takes much longer with awful distracted drivers so it isn't fun to drive around here anymore.

Good morning everyone, this will be short, dentist appointment at 1 and I slept late. Still have to shower and have something to eat.

HAL hope you an easy time getting where you had to go at that hospital. You are lucky to have a great SIL.

LARRY  there comes a time we like having visitors but it gets very tiring.

JENNY  thank you for the best news about Joan so far.I hope joe can move her closer to his and Linda after this.

CALLIE  if someone brought me me like you are making I just might add a few of the pounds I lost.

HAL  good news. We want no more of our family fighting with that horrible cancer.

AMY  I feel so bad for the dogs and some cats, too, that are so frightened by thunder and loud fireworks.

Have to go get ready for my ride to be here.

Can't say good morning, anymore.  It is now after noon.

Pretty sunny day here in Central Maryland today, with the temperature going up to the low 80's.   Hopefully, I will get to sit out a little while later .

Yes, it certainly was nice to hear some good and encouraging news about Joan.  I hope she will continue to improve and hopefully, get back here soon.

Larry, I am still waiting for our Walmart to start their on-line shopping.  They had told me a while back, that it would be soon, but nothing, so far.  I am really anxious as it is getting harder and harder for me to get to the grocery store.  My son or DIL doesn't mind taking me, but Walmart is just so much walking.  I have been just going to our regular local grocery store, and just getting things that I forget to put on my list when my DIL or son goes for me.  I really need some little Easter things and a few other general things.

Gloria, good luck with your dental appointment today.  That is something that I keep putting off.  Just the fact that I have to depend on someone taking me is the main problem.  I am sure if I get desperate, I will have to find a way.  I have to go on a Saturday when my son or DIL is off, and then I hate to take the time when they need their Sat. to get their own chores done.

I need to get some lunch and then get myself pulled together to go down and get my mail and sit outside for a while. I had a message that I had a package delivered today, so need to get that.

Hope everyone has a good afternoon.

Joy

Mary Ann, reading your posts about the bad storms in your area, made me think of how the seasons of the year bring a difference in weather conditions. Spring seems to be the season of tornadoes and  other severe wind conditions, summer is for fire hazards,and winter of course is snow and sleet. I don't know what to label Fall.

Janie, I guess you will just have to endanger You to shoo away any smelly creature lurking in your garden. I had one 12 inch glass skillet lid and was that thing ever heavy. Most of my cookware was Lo-heat Stainless steel..not the copper bottoms. We bought it when Susie was a baby for about $100.00 and I was still using it till I moved here to Rowntree gardens. My cookware now is a small toaster oven and the microwave. I miss a skillet, but at the same time I no longer want to cook.

Amy, I really should check out my pantry too. I have been here over a year now and have some canned goods and foodstuffs that I brought with me from my former abode. It is so easy for me to just close the door, and decide to worry about it later.

Janie dear heart. God is SO GOOD. And I am SO happy for you. "That which was lost, has been found. " Thanks be to God.

Lloyd, that's quite a jump…from 35 to 65 degrees. Out here we usually have a 20 degree change.

Sandy , you lucky girl to have this visit…enjoy every second of it.

Larry, it seems I am tired before I get out of bed in the morning. I start my day with leg, foot, and arm massage, and that does use up a lot of energy, but for me, it is really my age. Can't fool my body anymore, so I will just enjoy my day and do what I feel like doing.
As long as we are here, let's dance.
