well It is time for me to bid you all sweet dreams and good night. Hope to see all your faces smiling tomorrow.

I drooped back in to tell you all it is 79º and mostly clear @ 9:29 pm and we got to ninety two today and did it burn through your clothes. so I mainly was a couch jockey soaking up the AC cool. Have a appointment at VA tomorrow. to see the sawbones about heart readings. so good night for sure now.

And Good night from me, too.  I decided to put the tomato sauce in the crock pot overnight but being a bit leery, I'll be getting up at least once to make sure it's doing what it should do.  I'd be delighted to find that this process works.  The cooking down is the most tedious part of making tomato sauce for recipes.  It has to go to almost half.

GOOD NIGHT and God Bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone..

We are off to the city with a multitude of stops today. Hope  to get in and out before it gets too busy.

Lloyd ,hope you hear good news at the VA today.

Jane,how did you like doing the sauce in the crock pot?

Joy,you must have needed the sleep or you wouldn't have slept that long. Always another day to get your hair cut.

Jenny, we also had potatoes from the garden last night. One that had started to grow in the bag in Spring and I just threw them in the garden ,if they grew ok if not they would make fertilizer. A win win situation.

Better get ready for town.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning Dearfriends!  I must say that trying something new overnight doesn't make for good sleeping.  I set the alarm but duty called before the alarm and when I finished that, I went to the kitchen (down that extra long and growing hall) to check the sauce.  It looked fine, was hot but didn't appear to be much lower in the pot.  So I went back to bed and let it do it's thing.  But I guess I worried a bit because I woke numerous times and I dreamed some of the strangest dreams I've ever dreamed.  They weren't scary, just really ODD!

Now I have the rest of the sauce on the stove to cook down and season and I hope I have enough jars.  Today's going to be a busy day! 

I wonder where PHYLLIS is!  I hope she's OK!

Sure was nice to see CALLIE posting!

Wish me luck with the sauce! And enjoy your day!  Make it your own in every way!

P.S.  I sure hope AMY brings back some CHOCOLATE for the Hidey Hole!

Good morning everyone, a chilly 47°. Woke at 4:30 so have time to co‌. My son is picking me up at 7:30 to get to the vampire.  Got a call from my doctor yesterday. Have to go for a CT scan. Had a chest Xray last week and they didn't like the look of something. Never had one, have any of you had one? Is it a long time? I should have asked how long it takes. Will have it next Thursday morning. My CNA gets here every day at noon and wonder if I should cancel her. I went for years with nothing happening and now suddenly the xray and now this. Gee looks like I an starting to fall apart, ya think? Oh well at 88 I really cannot complain, been healthy  and I know others younger than me who have so many health problems. Just look at Jenny's DIL and what she is going through and she has a young family.

AMY  one son came Saturday with a bag of tomatoes, he is cleaning his garden out. Sunday my other son came with a bag of tomatoes. OK that was more than I could eat before they started going bad so yesterday so with my CNS's help blanched and peeled them and now have sauce to put into containers and in the freezer. By the time is had simmered down enough I was worn out so when it cooled I just put it all in the fridge. She will help me get it in the freezer this afternoon. She never did anything like that before and she thought it was a lot of work. To me the time it takes to do anything like that is not work, just think how good it will taste later. She gets that sauce in jars at the market, yuck.

JANE  we are the opposite, I love pies, almost all of them except pumpkin and mince. Only thing now I use the bought crust and it is not as good as home made.

TOMEREADER1  if you read here often  wish you would post more often, too. Some of us have been together since the old days of SN and Bis' Busy Nest and we like and welcome  newcomers.


JENNY  we have clothes lines here but  even if my CNA hung the clothes out I would not be able to reach up to take them off the line. Every time I see sheets hanging in the fresh air I remember how fresh the sheets smell on the bed. My oldest son plants potatoes every year and he always fives me some, taste is so good. My daughter has been growing sweet potatoes for 3 years now, those are the  ones they like best.

JOY  this morning I woke too early so will be in bed early tonight. 4 am is too early to start the day. If I could sleep in the afternoon I sure would.

JANE  there are so many things I can no longer do that I get angry at ME. Like having a nice clean home. I cannot even mop the floors  and my CNA does it but she avoids corners till I tell her the corners need cleaning, too.

LLOYD  glad it is cooling off here at last. Yesterday it never got out of the high 60's and I did enjoy some time sitting outside. Hope you get good news at the VA.

AMY  after my morning visit to the vampire this morning my day will be for resting-after I get my sauce into the freezer.

Of course this is a morning I woke too early and just knowing I have to fast I am hungry. Figures doesn't it?

Have a good day every one.

I forgot to answer AMY"s question asking if putting the tomatoes in the crock pot overnight worked.  It did if you'd like to have the most beautiful spaghetti sauce you ever saw or tasted but it didn't if you want sauce in little jars for recipes.  It didn't really cook down or thicken.  So now I'm doing it the old fashioned way...on the stove....with the watching and the stirring until it's ready for the flavoring. 

GLORIA, many years ago when I was working on Saturdays and my kids were helping with the housework, I told them that, if you clean the corners of a room really well you can probably ignore the middle  When my daughter wanted to know how the middle would get clean, I asked her if she thought she'd be able to get the mop or the sweeper into all four corners without going across the middle.  Smart kid!  She got it!  And the corners turned out as clean as the middle from then on!

Gotta go stir!

good Morning everyone. Gloria well I suspect the fact we went through hard times short on money and food, is what makes us go for excess food. as I have said before. we have a upright a chest type and a side by side freezers full of food and shelves of canned food also. it shows on my front side I eat too much. I suspect if i would do push backs more I would feel and breath better. but I have the sea food dieat down better,see food and eat it. Gloria I should know but seam to have forgot where you live state and all. if you do not miend remind me please. If i had your address we could drop by and take you and your sons and families out for a good feed,some time while on our travels. emails would be fine or phone. If we had your phone number, we have free long distance could and would call.

I just took 12 little jars of tomato sauce for recipes out of the canner to cool and I put 8 more empty jars in to get hot and sterilize.  I don't think I have enough sauce left for 8 more jars but I sure don't want to run out just in case. 

I spent some time trying to find an email address for PHYLLIS this morning.  I'm getting a little worried.  It's been while since she posted.  If anyone has an email for her and would like to share it or email her let me know.

I better get back to work before I decide to quit before I'm finished.  I do that sometimes and I'm usually sorry.

Just noticed, LARRY is in the margin.  I do miss him and his gems of wisdom!  I bet he's making a place for himself on God's staff.  He would have to make himself useful to anyone who asked!

Back to work!

Jane, when I was fixing my egg with the "bacon crumbles" this morning & wondering how Pat is doing without Larry. Little things mean a lot.... song in there.... & friends pop into mind so often.  I just checked & don't have an e-mail address for Phyllis. Sorry. Wonder if she can get a personal message through here?  I don't know how that works. Time for me to feed cats & put that taco soup in the frig & freezer. I do think I am addicted to this recipe.  Had a small bowl to see if it needed anything, now it's time I can eat a big bowl.  :thumbup:

I'm on the old computer downstairs... the other one insists it isn't connected to the internet. I've restarted several times, did the thing to turn off modem (or router?), one pop up asked if it's wi-fi key was turned off.  I don't know where a wi-fi key is... but know this computer is working & same wi-fi.  :crazy2:

Amy

The trip to the city went well Came home with loaded van and empty wallet :))
Jane, Shirley, guess this a day of Larry. We had lunch at DQ and I had a Dixie Bell for dessert and wondered if Larry had had one.  Oh my gosh they are so good , ice cream. chocolate AND butterscotch sauce cover in toasted pecans...I don't have them very often and it is a kids size I get and enjoy each mouthful. :smitten:

Company came to talk for a bit and pick up the chicken chests I get for them ,they cook them up for the dogs.

I have already played frisbee and I am done for the night. Wish I had the energy of this pup!!

Enjoy your evening everyone.

I went back until I found a post from Phyllis and there was no way to post anything to her that I saw.  Maybe I'm just missing it.  And maybe she'll see these messages and let us know she's just busy with her therapy or tired from it or something like that....I hope!

AMY, did you go to the chocolate store?  And did you get some for the Hidey Hole?  We're all waiting!

I'm all finshed with the tomato sauce and I ended with 16 jars.  6 half pints and 10 quarter pints.  They popped and popped until they were cool.  Nice sound!  Mow I have to put all the utensils away and I'm ready to hit the hay!

Boy am I tired!  I think I'll watch a little TV through my eyelids, take the doggies out one more time and then check out the zzzzs in the bed!  I wish you all a peaceful night and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Well, guess I'll leave the job of turning out the lights to Jenny.... she is an hour later than I am so checks in last. I have lights under the eves all around the house, all but one comes on at dusk & off in the morning, but there is one in the back that I wanted brighter light to aim out at the pool gates & it has to be turned off in the morning. I do have LED in it so not quite as expensive to forget all day... but feel guilty when I do.

It doesn't take much to throw me off my "routine". Having computer problems throws me off.  ;D Since this computer is connected there is no question that I've touched something that turned the wi-fi off on that HP. Have not said the right words yet today to fix it. Texted a plea for help but both sons must be swamped, they usually send cures right badk.  :tissue:

My washing machine sounds like it will wing up through the ceiling during spin cycle so guess that is next of the list to replace. With our hard water I don't think we've had one last but 7-10 years at most. Poor old dryer was bought back in 1967  & only had the belt replaced a couple times (by Cas). Remember when avacado green was the in color?  ;D

On that note I wlll bid y'all good night, sweet dreams & God Bless. That was Hal's sign off, remember? Shirley   oh, heck, let's dance a little.... :dancingdog:  :nanadance:  :nanadance2:  :nanadance:  :nanadance2:  :nanadance:  :nanadance2:

My ears were ringing, so here I am making sure the lights are turned off tonight❣️

GLORIA, I hope you got your blood draw done and then got something to eat!  I am sorry you have been called in for a CT scan to be done on Thursday.  I hope and pray it turns out to be nothing serious. No ce to read that you, to9 have some tomato sauce ready to put in your freezer.  I sure wish I could get some home grown tomatoes. 

JANE, you will sure enjoy the jars of tomato sauce this coming winter.  I remember fondly canning with my mother and grandmother, but sadly I have never done it myself. 

SHIRLEY, I thought sure Scott might keep in touch and let us know how he and Pat are doing!  Maybe he still will.   

AMY, glad to read that you and Kyle had a good day shopping.  Your lunch sounded yummy.  Thank you for reaching out to PHYLLIS.  I do hope,she is OK. 

Michele had her PET scan today......she will see her doctor tomorrow and I certainly hope and pray that there is nothing new that shows up! 

OK, sleep well and now OFF GO THE LIGHTS.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I guess I was really tired last night.  I went to bed and slept straight through to 5 a.m. this morning.  Then I crawled back in and slept another hour.  Today has to be a good day.

JENNY, as I read your message, I stopped and asked God to be with Michele today as she gets her report. 

AMY, I thought I knew all the parts of a chicken but I've never heard of one called a "chicken chest"!  Clue me in!  What is that?

And I've noticed that you're ignoring my questions about the chocolate.  That either means you did get some and your keeping it all for yourself or you never made it to the chocolate shop!

We're just sitting here waiting for the boinger and while I waited for the coffee this morning I looked over my home canned goods storage area and it's full.  I'm trying to decide where to put the sauce I just did and the veggie soup that's coming up next.  All of a sudden it dawned on me.  My empty jar storage area is EMPTY!  I'll fill it up with FULL jars.  I'm not dumb!  It just takes me a while to get a good idea!

I'll be off to Wally World this morning and I'll need all the smiles I can get.  So wish me smiles!

I wish you all a lovely day!
Make it your own in every way!

Good morning everyone.
A cool 40° F here......
Today will be working in the garden and if I have enough cucumbers will make another batch of pickles. Need to run to the co-op to pick up a bag of cracked corn, seems the new bag of bird seed doesn't have corn in it and the crows like it.

Jane ,sorry, forgot about the chocolate ? .We didn't go that way:( There is some chococlate left from the last trip to do for a bit. Check the hidey hole I just put some Laura Secord chocolate in there. LOL Jane, chicken chest, chicken breast, chicken boob all the same :) I have never bought chicken lips though ,they are as scarce as frogs hair!! Have a fantastic day at work!

Gloria, I love doing pickles, sauces and yes it is a lot of work but well worth it and way better than store bought. I know there will be a time that I can't do it but until then I am going to. CT scans are easy enough to do, Kyle has one on the 27th.

Jenny,
Hope Michele gets good results from her PET scan. Thank you for turning the lights out.

Lloyd, hope you and Nancy have a good day today.

Better get a move on here.

Enjoy your day everyone.

good morning everyone. it is 70º @ 7:02 A M and calling for 90º today. I do not need that temp. oh well what ever will be will be. I went to v a and a good visit and good reading on the heart a gram they gave me. see you all later.

Good morning everyone, warmer today-59°-, yesterday did not get  out of the 60's all day even with all the sunshine. Local guessers are saying this cold front kept the current  hurricane Humberto away from us and sent it out to sea. The week end is supposed to hit the 80's. Ahh the fickle Mother Nature just cannot make up her mind.

JANE  if you want the tomatoes to get thicker you could take the cover off the slow cooker and turn the heat up for it to simmer more, when I have had real juicy tomatoes I add a can of tomato paste to thicken it. Even my sons are great at keeping their homes clean, my daughter helped me so much when she was young that it is second nature to keep a clean home

LLOYD  like you I have more food in the cupboard and in the freezer than I can eat and I never went hungry. Just too hard for me to cook anymore and have no appetite. I live in the tiny state of Rhode Island in the New England states. Conn. is on the west and Mass. on the north and east of us and the Atlantic along the south of the state. I think I have your email address, will check the list I have.

JANE  I just checked and I don't have an email for Phyllis. I agree, much to long since she posted. I hope she is not back in the hospital or if her son knows how to let us know.

SHIRLEY  if I remember with the personal message sends an email to let the person know they have a PM. Been a long time since I had one.

AMY now you did it, I enjoy anything from DQ. Wish there was one around here I would be after my sons to take me for a treat.

SHIRLEY  I have had trouble with this HP since day 1 and wish I never bought it.

JENNY  yes my son took me for breakfast yesterday and I enjoyed it. I love spending time alone with each one. Nothing like the taste of sauce made with fresh-not can tomatoes.

JANE love that pop sound on what is just canned. I like those jars better than the old ones with the class tops and the way the wire clips were.

AMY  how long does it take for the CT scan. I know the MRI seems to take hours.

Have a good day.

GLORIA, the lid WAS off the crock pot all night and it just didn't cook down enough for the kind of sauce I wanted.  I was making the kind you buy in the very small cans that is just enough for a small recipe.  It's thick but all tomato with no additives.  I put a little salt in mine so I can do it in the water bath canner and it helps to keep it.  But I went back and looked where I saw the recipe for doing it in the crockpot overnight and it's for making spaghetti sauce.  However, it is a way to keep the extra hot while I'm working on what fits in the canner. 

Gotta go jump in the shower....well, I think I'll just STEP in.  That's a bit safer.

AMY, thanks for the chocolate.  And I'll look in the meat department and see if we carry "chicken boobs"!

I'm off....in more ways than one!

Re contacting Phyllis - to begin with, someone said they had already sent her a message.  I just checked on how to do it -

Go to the Member List, find her name, click on the name.  What comes up are a few lines, one of which is Send PM.  If she looks at SS, there will be a message about a message.

I hope this isn't too confusing.

Jane, I think Phyllis' last name is Lewis (was her husband Tom Lewis?).  I'll look in the White Pages and if there is anything, I'll get back to you.  I think her son is David and lives with her.

Mary Ann

Mary Ann

Jane, I don't know if I hit the jackpot or struck out.  I found four Phyllis Lewis with different addresses.  When I clicked on Profile, I got a list of 63 Phyllis Lewis, one with the age of 88, another 81, several in 70s.  Only one had a relative named David and his address was not like any of the four.  So I looked for David Lewis and I figured he'd be in his 50s or 60s.  Again there were four, all with addresses different from Phyllis and there were a slew of Davids when I asked for the Profile and not one of them had a relative named Phyllis.

I could be very wrong with the last name, but I seem to remember her saying her husband was Tom.

If I have any more ideas, right or wrong, I'll let you know.  I think Cary is near Raleigh.

It has been a long day waiting for the news on Michele. 
Unfortunately it was not the news we wanted to hear😩
The tumor in the lung is much smaller, so the chemo has worked, but now there is a pea size spot on her spine.  She will see the radiation oncologist tomorrow to find out if they can radiate this spot on the spine, and what the plan is for the lung.  Her chemo oncologist thinks that radiation is not necessary, but he is the only one.  She will continue on the chemo pills, and will probably do so for the rest of her life😤

It is of course scary that now it might be in the bone.......

Michele is in good spirits.....bless her heart🙏

More prayers needed good friends.......thank you for your continued support❣️

Good evening,

Wrote a post answering a question I was asked and then realized this isn't the forum it was in!  Sorry 'bout that.

Jenny,  I did say I am so sorry the news about Michelle wasn't what you wanted to hear.  Prayers will certainly increase for her.

I went to a Book Club discussion today and then took the friend who picks me up for this and other organizational events out to lunch.  We went to Pepperoni Grill and had panini sandwiches along with tomato basil soup.  I may skip dinner!

Enjoy your evening, Everyfriend.

Oh, Jenny, I am sorry the news was not as good as prayed for.  More prayers and hugs for all. 

Ever have one of those days, not bad, not good, just not satisfying. Nothing to show for my time & so much to do I can't get anything done. Have 2 cats staring at me, ready for their midnight snack so they can go on out. I didn't walk them down to the river tonight (no bread for the fish), I didn't get to Walmart for bread or Sam's for meat to cook & grind. So the cats are put out with me tonight. Will feed the 2 & call for Callie, bless her heart, she isn't sure why she isn't invited to spend all day inside like during the winter. She tries to please but does not understand that if she would only follow their example all would be okay!  Take care...
