Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm up but I'm not sure I'm "attem" yet!  I'll just go along and see what happens.  There are lots of things asking for attention around here and I guess I'll see what yells the loudest.

I got up to 65º but it's supposed to hit 88 today.  That's HOT!!  We were supposed to have heavy rain and thunder and lightning yesterday but what we got was three different lovely showers lasting about 20 minutes each....just enough to soak the ground nicely.

When Christy came up last weekend, she brought some stuff out of her garden and one of the items was a kind of medium head of cabbage.  I thought I could use it up but, you know, cabbage goes a looooong way.  I cleaned it and cut it up and put some in the food processor for cole slaw.  I got a BIG bowl of that and there was still half the cabbage left.  I ran across and old recipe for fried cabbage with bacon so I tried it.  It was great and I managed to eat the whole batch of it.  Frankie turned up her nose at it.  Yesterday, I made another batch with twice as much bacon in it and I added shredded carrots too.  It's delicious!  And it goes with anything for supper!

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

And don't forget to share it with your friends in here!

Good morning everyone, Geez only 3 posts since I was here yesterday. 2 fron LOYD and 1 from Sandy who really did not say anything. Was the site down again? This is starting to scare me. Right now this is the only place that we can socialize. 52 other tenants in this building and I don't see anyone anymore. No seating in the lobby or on the porches, library is locked so cannot even get a book to pass the time. Cars in the parking lot don't seem to move either.

My exciting day yesterday  was second son came to visit for  a short time and brought me a fresh dozen eggs from the farm. Had a nap and talked with my daughter on Skype. Made puzzles on the PC and played some games on it too. Could not find anything good on the TV either. What a long boring day it was. I expect today will be a copy of yester day with no visit from sons.

Come on Ladies and Gentlemen and let us know how you ar e spending your days of Covid-19

JANE  you sneaked in on me, So glad some one else was here. Oh we did ge t several hours of good rain late afternoon yesterday. From looking at the forecast looks like most of the week we will have rain and possible Tstorms.

Have a good dy and stay safe.

God morning everyone..
 Overcast this morning. I did manage to get the laundry dry on the line in between rain drops.  Nice rain ,saved me from watering the garden and flower pots..

A day of rest .may get some sewing in..

Jane, we love fried cabbage. shred along with onions, celery, carrots , can even put peppers in if you like. The cabbage does last a long time.

Gloria, Kyle spent the last two days making and installing a new gate. The old one was a one piece and long this one is in two pieces but now he needs a type of bolt that we can't get here.

I had better get a move on..
Enjoy your day everyone...stay safe.

Just saying Hi !

It has been kind of quiet here and also over on Norm's page, also.  Guess everyone just is still hanging in there and not doing anything special.

Gloria, I am sorry you don't eat the jam anymore, as I surely would have loved sharing some with you. That is, if I ever can find it.  I am sorry you don't have that much company.  I don't either.  People can still come into our building if they are a helper or bringing in groceries or something like that. They just don't want a lot of visitors in and out a lot.

I slept a little later today, so that will make the whole day go faster.  But, it is sunny and pretty out.

Jane, I will have to try making some fried cabbage, as I do get a head and usually make cole slaw, and don't know what else to do with what is left.

Have a good rest of the afternoon.

Good Morning,

I've just finished watching my church's service via video on Facebook.

Nothing else to report.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Carol

Checking in - I read all the notes and always am so thankful to have this little corner of cyber friends.

We fee fortunate to be able to get supplies and groceries.  We use the Pick Up feature and so far it seems to keep us afloat for a week or two at a time.  Monday, I am looking forward to meeting social apart at neighbor's back porch.  This is so exciting.  One of the friends has a husband on Hospice support - we really hope she can have a little time to rest with us. 

Jenny:  I always look up to see if you are there.  So sorry about your family loss.  You are staying strong!  Hello to Bob! I think about your dad as well. 

Gloria:  Thinking about you - I hope the wicked women is "found out" soon - she should lose her job.

Shirley:  You made the right decision.  It is hard to think about - we sold the Hi Lo camper after the truck lost power and the camper was pushing us toward the mountain ravine.  We were ready to jump out - that close of an experience and we had nightmares after the episode. 

It took some time but I was able to change the password to my hospital care.  I have a list of 40 passwords.  This is just insane - you make one little click mistake and evil computer swoops down and the dreadful words are:  change your password.  Would I ever like to tackle the nerds who sit and think of the worst scenario.  A pox on them! 
 :crazy2:
Okay, I am back to menial house work - that is always simple and nothing interferes.

Well, pool is open & surprisingly good shape after a long winter. This must be a record for late opening!!  Son; & gr-son did the job & I paid them a bonus because I was so relieved it looked so good without dumping a ton of chemicals in. It will take several days of running to filter the water to sparkling, but in 30+ years, she never started out this easy in the spring!  It's like getting all the weeds pulled out of flower beds & garden at the same time, just so satisfying!  The air is very dusty, not sure if the mess coming from "across the pond" or just what the wind is picking up from a very dry Kansas! If you could see the trees blowing & twisting you'd wonder how they manage to stay in the ground. Can't tell which way it is blowing, they are twisting & bending every direction.

Now that is done (and I did my share), I've had a shower & washed my hair & thinking KFC sounds pretty good. The cats enjoy it as well, they are getting more spoiled every day, won't eat the rotisserie chicken from Sam's anymore.
Mid afternoon so guess this will be "lupper" as my neighbor used to call it.

Callie, I have not watched the church service on TV today. I am upset that ours has not figured a way to let us take turns & be safe... my daughter's church in St.Louis sends out e-mail to have parishioners sign up & allows only so many. Great idea they worked out.

I'd better move or will fall asleep. Need to eat first so off to KFC! Did I mention it is HOT??? Not sure if cloudy or just dust hiding the sun. Radar isn't showing any rain. St.Anthony has not come up with my pack of gift cards so far.  :tissue: Wow, it is looking like dust storms we had out in western Kansas.... all of a sudden.

Carol, my son still has their big Hi Lo.... but the 3/4 ton van they pull it with is shot. His wife doesn't want to give it up but crazy to keep to use maybe twice a year... and have to buy a new truck to pull it. Their 3 garages are full with cars & HiLo.... van sits in the driveway & little Flagstaff camper he uses all the time, in my extra garage. Even with queen size heated bed, all necessary kitchen equipment, plus stero/etc, he can pull it with his RAV with no problem. But it doesn't have a bathroom/shower. He rigged one up for her this year, because he had the little one out there & she came to join us. He said she was impressed with the shower & all, :thumbup: that he put in a pop out hunter's blind.

This isn't getting my KFC.... so sleepy.....  Super Sunday, where ever you are!

I'm here even if I'm really late.  So slow to get started today.

 Didn't feel too good when I got up but doing better now and I'm actually planning to fix a simple hot weather dinner when David gets home from his walk.  Fried Chicken (from the grocery), little buttered potatoes, mixed Mediterranean vegetables, brownies for dessert.  I think that will fill us up on another hot summer day.

Take care, All.

Amy, I wish you lived close; I really need Kyle to rebuild my side gate. It is double sided, so we can pull vehicles in back, but the wood and fixtures are just "shot" after, I don't know how many years.  I need a complete new fence, but I can't afford that right now, and for security reasons, I have to get the gate re-done.  Oh, well.  I just keep on dreaming.  I might like to win the lottery; just a small one even.  LOL ;)

Good Everning Everyone from the cool
and overcast rocky coast of Maine. 

I did check in this morning but
did not say any thing..  Not much to
say this weekend, except I am glad
that Monday is almost here.

My thift shop has just opened down
stairs but they do not take cash. 
Only checks of credit cards..
I gave my card to Kelly because
she always picks up my
groceries for me...  But
the department store just down the
street has also opened and they
do take cash.    Hooray !

Everyone have a good day ..

with covid)

Well, another boring day is finished!  I told myself I had not done anything at all today and then I started thinking about it.

-I read the paper, drank my first cup of coffe
-I took Mickie out and then gave her the pill.
-We waited for the boinger and then had breakfast
-I delivered a "thank you" note to the gal who removed my two huge bags
  of weeds
-I took Mickie for two more walks
-I went to MY church on YouTube
-I watched my Grandson-in-Law deliver the sermon at his church in
  also on YouTube.  Their minister has the Corona Virus
-I moved some more stuff out of the back room

I guess I deserve to be a little tired tonight.  And Frankie came over late afternoon and is spending the night.

Now I'm off to bed to see if there are any zzzzs hanging around in there.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

A Good Sunday evening HELLO to EVERYFRIEND. 

It is late but I did want to say HELLO and see how everyone's day was?

We have decided to go to the mountains and stay a couple of nights in our sons place so that we can see our out of state family.  We will social distance from one another and no hugs will likely happen as they want to make sure we are all safe🙏 It will feel good, but maybe a bit strange to head off into the beautiful mountains.

Many are talking about wanting to watch HAMILTON next month on Disney Plus.  I have been told that you can sign up for one month of Disney Plus for $4.99 a month and then cancel at the end of the time.  I know it will be wonderful and I sure hope to see it.

SHIRLEY, how nice to have your pool up and running.  Glad it seems to be doing well.  Our community pool had a bad leak and they are having a lot of problems fixing it. 

CAROL, we do look for you to go by as well....maybe one day we will get lucky. 

JOY, it has been very quiet in the folders recently.  I hope everyone will keep posting......I sure would be sad if this communication were to be taken away from us 😩😩

JANE, how nice Christy brought you some nice veggies...everything you made with the cabbage sounded so good.

AMY, I have not fixed fried cabbage for a long time.  I bet there are a lot of good things I could fix if you do not mind me dropping in and picking some veggies from you nice trug?

PHYLLIS, your meal you were planning to fix sure sounded yummy.  I hope you enjoyed every bite of it....David, too.

I must head off to bed.  Pleasant dreams to all.

Jenny

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's feels good right now!  The temp is only 64º right now but it's heading for the mid 80s later today.  If there's a breeze like yesterday, that's not so bad but if it's humid and still 87 can be choking.

I don't have much on the agenda for today except a couple of phone calls that HAVE to be made this morning.  And depending on Frankie's schedule, I might borrow back my car for a quick trip to the country market. And I also have to make up a batch of dog food!  Maybe I should run the Swiffer around a bit, too.

What I'm really missing is a long, leisurely trip to the grocery store but my daughter insists that would not be a good thing for me to be doing. 

JENNY, enjoy your trip to the mountains and your visit with family.  It sounds delightful!

JOY, I actually made tomato jam one summer and it was pretty good!  If all my tomato plants produce this summer, I might make some more.  I kind of forgot about it until you mentioned it!

SHIRLEY, I'll be right over to jump in the pool!

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

Good morning everyone..

Going to be a muggy day..

We are off to the city to pick up parts for Kyle's gate. We will take the dogs with us as we won't be there long and will have the a/c on.

Yesterday was a lazy day for me, no sewing done either. Janies left some zzz's here and I found them!!! Ohh almost for  got.......highlight of the day was seeing a bunny!! Not many around anymore and this one was still using his feet!!

Tome, Kyle would do that for you . He is just making another trug now a 4 foot across instead of 4 and it is 8 feet long.

Jane, I find the day disappears on me so fast .Doesn't matter if I am busy or not...it just goes poof!! Not too many days that one isn't busy somehow though.

Jenny, the veggies would be fresh! I love fried cabbage, cabbage soup,cole slaw and cabbage rolls! Heading for the mountains sounds like a cool plan. My friend in  Tucson AZ takes off for the mountains for the summer then back down  for the winter.

Sandy, I wonder will we get back to the way we were?  The city we are going to has had no cases now for more than a week. I think I will feel safe if more than two weeks!

Shirley, there is no place like home no matter how much work there is to do.

Gloria, my friend has been getting us brown eggs and the shells seem to be stronger on them as opposed to the white eggs.

Lloyd , good morning to you and Nancy.

Joy and Phyllis, good to see you. Hope each day gets better for both of you.
 

Better get a move on here.

Enjoy your day everyone and stay safe.

Good morning everyone. Thought I would not get here today. We really had a doozy of a thunderstorm. Did not lose power  but Cox went out. No TV PC or phone. OK I went to bed early, not much else to do.  TV and phone working. Getting the PC on was a different story this morning. Kept getting a screen from Microsoft wanting my password. Don't know if I ever had one. Try ing to put a new one in and they refused everyone. I finally shut the PC off and it is much to early to call my grandson. Would not want to wake them at 5am. Bad enough when I ask his help. 2 hours later I tried turning it on again and here I am. Don't know what that was all about with microsoft.

AMY  looks like Kyle likes working with wood. My 2nd son has a feeling for wood. He made his waterbed and I wish you could see the designs he made in the headboard. He is good with his hands. Maybe now he is finally retired he can get back to doing some wood things. I like fried cabbage with the wide noodles the way a sister made it. Only thing in this building every time someone cooks cabbage you can smell it on all 3 floors.

JOY  same here with visitors. Witch has signs up all over to limit visitors. There is a book on a table in the lobby that everyone who comes in has to sign, where going and why and time leaving.

CAROL  we would all love to see the witch get fired but she is good with book work and saves the company money. She gets a big bonus at the end of the year. I was ready to start pulling my hairout this morning with passwords.

SHIRLEY  the wind with the storm yesterday had the trees almost bending in half. I think there might have been some small hail mixed in at times. I thought a window would break it hit so hard and hitting the AC. I saw where that dust storm from Africa will be hitting some southern states.

PHYLLIS  in this hot weather I am satisfied with a sandwich.

SANDY  you are not the only one bored. Add me to the list. Never was bored before this.

JANE  I don't think you ever have a day of doing nothing.

LLOYD  I slept good last night.

JENNY  I wonder if my CNA can fry cabbage. Would love to go to the mountaind with you.

AMY  I love coleslaw. We mostly have brown eggs here but some markets have white ones. The farm fresh eggs are brown.

Have a good day everyone and keep safe.

Good morning on another hot and humid day.  I wrote a long post but lost it when my internet had a sudden glitch.  I won't go through all of that again so will just say that I hope everyone is doing OK and that it will be a good day for ALL.

Sorry Phyllis  -
how frustrating .. That has happened to me
before, too.   No fun!

On being bored. 
I am never bored,  ever.   
But now it is hard to
muster up enough strength
to find something to do
to replace the boredom that is
every where.!!   

I need to go find a series of
Movie on Netflix, Hulu, or
Prime....  There must be something
out there hiding from me to
keep my mind from "pityville" ..

Have a good day,  eeryone!

Good morning everyone...

I thought it was 6:30 not 5:30 am , oh well I am up now. I foresee a cat nap in my future today.  I do have a few chores to do before we head into town for more lumber. This time Kyle is making a 4 x 8 ' trug and just needs the side boards to finish it off.

I have a date with the vacuum and then wash the floors. Doesn't that sound thrilling?  ;D

Gloria, Kyle is a carpenter by trade and loves working with wood. When we moved here each year we tackled a room. He built  the kitchen cupboards along with pullout pots and pan drawers and pull out what I call my morgue drawers . I use them for my linens top one and canning, baking  utensils in the bottom one.....big enough for a person to lie down in!

Now that I am up early better make the most of it.

Enjoy your day and stay safe everyone..

We're up and moving today!  Mickie's been out and had her pill and we're waiting for the boinger. And I've had my first cup of coffee.  I'm not sure what today will bring but I'm ready to face this day.

AMY, Mickie has decided that sometime between 5 and 5 and 5:30 is the time to get up.  I'm hoping that only means that when she sees daylight at the windows it's time.  Maybe that will change with the changing seasons.  When she did that in other summers, Annie would look at her then look over her shoulder at me and lay her head back down.  She trusted her instincts and her instincts told her it wasn't time yet.

We've given up our after lunch walks.  It's just plain too hot.  And Mickie found a way to tell me that.  We got past the house next door and into the shade of a big tree at the house on the corner and she just flopped!  And she wouldn't get up until I reversed direction and started back home.  Smart doggie!

It's almost time for the boinger so...

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

And don't forget to share it with all of us!

Cloudy, hot, humid, and storms predicted.  Typical summer day.  More laundry today.  I split it into two days.  It is easier for us to do it that way so Mon. and Tues. are usually laundry days with Tues. being household items.

Very quiet here.  I'll be getting a fresh food delivery from Papa Spud's later so I'll see what comes in the box.  I know I'll be getting some fresh raspberries and I'm looking forward to that.

I hope that All of you are well.  Any plans for 4th of July celebration?  None here, at least not yet.

Take care.

Good morning everyone, rained yesterday and more coming today with a few thunderstorms every day. Yuck. Slept late today, almost 8 when I got up. Sleeping a whole 8 hours has left me stiff and today Yvette will be comin‌g early. Her client before me has a medical appointment this morning.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link.

SHIRLEY  what a beautiful pool and area around it. A shame that no one ever uses the pool. I am with AMY I would be in it all summer.

I better get moving and get dressed before Yvette gets here.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Boy! We must have been a busy (or lazy) group today!  No one's been in here since 9:15 this morning and it's almost 10 now. 

Lots of things found me to do them today including some laundry and moving some more stuff in the store room!  I watered the plants, made some phone calls, did two loads of laundry, cleaned some fresh fruit, took Mickie for several walks (even let her take ME for a walk once).  I read the paper, did a crossword puzzle and a work jumble. At one point the zzzzzs caught up with me.

Now I'm off to bed.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!
