Good morning Everyfriend!  It's still raining and only 48º here this morning.  It's makes for a damp cold that reaches right into one's bones.  I'm waiting for the coffee to brew and when it does, I'll pour it and start on the black pants that need to be shortened. 

I have a "pre-Texas" list that contains 19 items (so far).  I'm a compulsive list maker when I have a deadline to meet.  I make my list on wordpad and then when one thing is done, I turn it red.  I made up the list on Saturday night and then began to work on it yesterday.  As I said, there are 19 items on the list and as of last night at Midnight, 5 items are red.  At least three are on today's agenda.  And I even squeezed in a nap yesterday.

I wish I could share this rain with those of you who need it.  I'm really getting sick of it.  It's cold, depressing and damp.  I hope you all have a brighter day...and rain if you need it.

Ahh and the domestic chores can work the other way too.... :thumbup:

When R was out walking the dogs I decided to get the Ironing board out, hadn't done any Ironing from the day I moved here, well I did give it a try once then R and the dogs cut their walk short on that day....I done some of my clothes, cashmere and some cotton cardi's and jumpers and a handful of pillow cases, of course I stopped when R and dogs came in, the Ironing now has to be done in the kitchen, cant have R nor the dogs traipsing in and out...I had trouble Ironing as my leg was literally on the move which caused me some bent overs till the spasms passed....quite dangerous when they come out of the blue and you are holding a steam Iron....Anyway I asked R to put the board back, he said leave it out I have some Ironing to do...of course for once I didn't argue with that and left him later to get on with it, trousers and polo tops....I told him if he started buying jersey trousers, like I now do with jersey skirts, there would be no use for the Ironing board....if only.....mind you don't think I would trust him with Ironing my stuff.... ;D

Good morning, Kelly.

Vanilla-Jackie--Good morning. Wow--that was fast delivery by Amazon.  I don't buy ANYTHING that needs ironing.:)

Good morning, Amy.  Enjoy your quilting group.  You sure are a whiz at getting them done.

Janie--Good morning.  You are making good progress on turning the things on your list red.  Hopefully when you get to TX it will be warm, and there will  be no rain.

Good morning everyone.
I got sidetracked and never checked in last evening,so top of the day to you all. I have been to Sidney Australasia and England via skype . had a good laugh together and a brief word with Peters wife.
wish you all a great day. we are still cloudy a chance of a few showers today and sunny rest of the weak.

Hi everyone.  It is an overcast morning after an evening with some heavy rain.  I just checked my rain gauge and we had over 1/2 inch, which is much appreciated. We had a very nice Church service yesterday with everything but the sermon done by children pre-school age to the fifth grade.  While it was hard to understand some of them they all did a nice job.  There was music, prayers and explanations of our stain glass windows in our church as a part of the program.  This church has a lot of young children.  After church we went to Firehouse Subs for lunch and then I made a brief stop at the nearby Walmart for some copy paper.  Today my only plan is to attend a meeting at noon.  I may call later this morning to see about getting a haircut.  Pat may attend an end-of-meeting term luncheon with her Circle friends at church. 

I don't get much of my medicine in bubble packs and am glad as I find it difficult to pop the pills out.  I will try to remember to use a knife point to break the seal on the back to make it easier.

deAngel, we are certainly enjoying living in South Carolina.  It is a very nice place to spend the last years of our lives.  The May Pole holds a nice spot in my heart of the times the Eastern Star, of which my grandmother was a member, would have a special meeting where they invited family and friends to come and to dance around the May Pole. 

Don, interesting that you get your medicine on a weekly basis.  Is that the norm in the Canadian health system.  That seems like a like of work for the pharmacies and those doing the delivering.  Are all of the medicines you take at one time contained in one bubble?  The last couple of times I have been in the hospital I noticed the medicines were in individual bubble packs but identified to the individual, which certainly should cut down on medicine errors and each time a bill was taken out of the package the bar code was scanned.

Callie, glad you Church Ladies settled all of the important problems!  :)

June, I checked my email and don't see the little backup emblem you mention.  Maybe your son can shed some light on the matter if he also uses a Mac rather than a PC. 

Jackie, you must live fairly close the the Amazon Distribution Center for such fast delivery. 

Beverly, you all have more energy than I do to make a 1400 mile trip each way by car.

Hi Lloyd
You have a good day.

June, I have gmail on my MacBook and don't see the icon you're talking about.  There's no automatic backup with mine.  Maybe there is something checked in your preferences to have things backed up automatically.  As Larry says, have one of your sons check it out for you.

Good morning,  Lloyd.

Larry--Good morning.  So many here are talking about rain and still we've had nary a drop.  Your church service, done by the children yesterday, sounds lovely.

Good morning, Jeanne Lee.

Good Morning Everyone!

I am tail end charlie this morning.  I was in earlier but had something else to do so didn't post.

It is a gloomy day here today.  And windy to boot. "they' say possible rain today but that is the end until Sunday......yeah, sure.

Just looked at my calendar and no doctors appointments are month.....yeah.  But I know that wont hold, I have to see my urologist sometimes this month. And get that blasted shot.

Nothing exciting happening here.  I was just looking back and saw where Janie makes list.  I wish I was that organized.  I do put my appointments and things I need to do on the calendar, but never make a list.  But then, we have so many ladies on our forum that are well organized and do so many things.  It is amazing to me.  To all of you,  :thumbup:

Good morning to All, it is a bright and sunshiny day here in Stanton. Predicted to be 79 for a high. :thumbup:

Janie, I well recall the necessary lists I used to make out for daily use, no more…..I have the weekly calendar for activities here so just check the ones I intend to participate in. All appointments are on my Calendar in RED. I, and hundreds of others in Ca. would appreciate your rainy days Janie. Mother Nature is a capricious lady, and does what she chooses.

Vanilla, R. irons ???????? first time I ever heard of a man using an iron on clothing. The white shirts I ironed every week were the bane of my existence. I am following Bis' advice, I left my iron back at the Apt. in Hemet. They do have one in the laundry room here but i ignore it.

Jeanne Lee, as you and Larry suggested, I will write to Dan and see if he knows of what I speak. Gary just showed me how I could erase dozens of them at one time, but I already knew that. The girl that does computer work here for Rowntree, didn't seem to know what to do, so Dan will be my last resort. If he can't help, I'll just ignore them and see what happens. I will knock off the activity when I see that little wheel spinning around.No sense in getting frustrated over something I cannot control. Jeanne, do you like your Mac Book as well as a desk top ? I am considering a second Mac in case this one goes kaput..it is nine years old now, and slowed down..just like me.

Hal, I have one appt. this month. My physical doctor on the 25th. Just a return, unless I develop a complaint in the meantime. I was to return to the dentist if the crown was remiss, but it it doing what it is supposed to do. 8)
As long as we are here, let's dance.

June, I'm converted completely to laptops - both this MacBook and my Toshiba PC.

Jeanne, I tested out Gary's Lap top, and even Dories Iphone, now I'm going to investigate the Mac Book. But I am still hoping my iMac lasts as long as I do. It has been such a good friend.

JoanFL

halkel--I make lists, but then sometimes I misplace the list.:)  The sun has been in and out so far all day--but NO rain.

June--I have a calendar tacked inside a kitchen cabinet and write all my obligations on it.  I hope Dan can get whatever that is that annoys you on you computer to go away.

Jeanne Lee--I feel deprived.  I don't even have on laptop.

Junedrabek, talking of white shirts....several years ago when my daughter was young I took to doing large house cleaning, just one & a half or two hours per house...One lady was a lovely Jewish lady with young daughter who got on very well with me, just a tad older than my daughter was at that time well......This lady used to mother me, made me eat what she brought upstairs to me, make me stop and eat everything up, often it would be cheese on toast.......My sole job was to Iron a dozen or so shirts that belonged to her hubby Doctor, for near on two hours that was all I done was Ironing and if I had any time left over she would have me cleaning out and tidying inside her fridge....but most of the time her daughter would stay upstairs talking to me....They were some tough times but good times...

Good Morning Everyone! We are having another day of misty, damp mornings, sunny afternoons and rainy evenings, nothing new there, but the trees and bushes are once again green.

I have a big wall yearly calendar that I make notations on, to do lists, observations, people's birthdays, appointments and the like. I also include events from the calendar here that is sent out. I have a calendar included online but I am used to the oversized calendars and continue to purchase them.

Gmail is one I also have but I usually delete as I go or direct the email to one of my folders.

When I was younger, I managed apartments and one small hotel. I got to know the housekeepers and had to check their work if new, and so used to be able to do a one bedroom in 20 minutes in a two bedroom in 45.

June, my father could iron with the best of them.  He worked at the
federal prison when we were growing up and his Government issue uniforms had to be ironed.  I came home from school one day and he was in the kitchen ironing.  I must have had a quizzical look on my face because he said, "Who do you think ironed my uniforms when I was in the army?"  No permanent press in those days...and tough army inspections.  He could do anything he wanted to do.  Made me proud to be his daughter!

They put those dratted drops in my eyes and that ruined my schedule of getting things done so I think I'll go take a nap and maybe my eyes will be ok when I wake up.  I'm tired of squinting!

I used to love ironing my dad's shirts.  They weren't white, but they were dress shirts.  He was a teacher and wore suit and tie to school every day.  At one time I had an ironer/mangle and ironing on that was fun, but I much preferred using the iron and ironing board.  I haven't really ironed anything in years and I use an iron only to press a crease in my slacks when I think they need it - which isn't very often.

Who remembers the real Irons? those heavy black Irons you put on the gas stove....no electric steam Irons, no water compartments, no cords or flexes, no temperature dials, oh, just how did we manage?..... ;)
