Good morning everyone. Nothing much going on around here. I am beginning to feel like a hermit. Only place that  is coo‌l is  my apartment. Even the halls feel warm. Looks like she doesn't want to waste money keeping the AC's running much at either end of the hallways. mid 60's now and cloudy with chance of rain.

PHYLLIS  your smoothie sounds so tasty. Yvette keeps making me one every day but at times I rather have just plain water.

JANE  in the mid  60's here now. When it gets up to mid 70's for a high maybe I will venture outside again. If the witch left the back door unlocked we could go out there in the shade. Front porch is all sun and that I cannot take. Walking around the parking lot is out, between the sun and the black top it is horrible.

CAROL  on local news there have been reports of some people calling all this a hoax and those whoe died would have died anyway. One man opened his restaurant and no masks, sitting close and not sanitizing tables and counters. He has been closed again by the state and it is permanent. He will never be able to have a restaurant in this state again.

AMY  I watched the Bells of St. Mary yesterday and enjoyed it again. Thanks for the link to it.

JANE  glad you have some strong men to move your freezer and heavy furniture you want moved.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link to photos.

SHIRLEY  how many years have you had that tree? Love the pot you have it in. Your room is beautiful. Something like I would have loved years ago. Never had rooms big enough for anything pretty.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone..

What a night we had here!! Along with lightening, cracking thunder non stop we had a welcomed rain. This kept of for quite sometime during the night which I was awake for. Babe was so nervous so I got up with her. I can foresee a nap later today. Bet the water barrel is full. :thumbup:

Today is to go to the lumber store to pick up plastic to finish off the inside of a trug and need to pick up a card for our friend.

Jane, we stopped in at Sally Anns to see if they are taking "stuff" as I have some also to go. She said not yet but soon and then it would be only one day a week,

Carol, I think a lot of people are going to have second thoughts on dining out.

Phyliss, I am with you on the want of cooler weather. This hot weather is nasty!

Gloria, doing the happy dance here we had rain!! Lots of it along with all the music to go with.  We still need more but thankful for what we got..

Lloyd say good morning to Nancy for me please. Hope you both have a wonderful day..

Joy and Peter....stop in when you can find the time and say hi.

Better get a wiggle on it...

Enjoy your day everyone...stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend! I'm up and attem!  Mickie's been out and fed and I made dog food and took a shower.  I'm ready for the guys to come over and move stuff.  I still have some boxes to get moved and some more to go through but the job doesn't look so daunting anymore. 

I had the last of the fresh raspberries for breakfast this morning.  They sure tasted good and I ate them slowly so I could savor them. They made me wish I had raspberry bushes in the yard!

I guess I better get moving so I accomplish something today.  I have to make room for the freezer in the room where I want it before the guys decide to show up. 

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

And don't forget to share it....whatever it is you do!

Good morning.  All is as usual here this morning.  You've all heard my complaints about the heat so I won't mention them again.

No food deliveries to worry with today so will just take it easy.

Take care, All.

Lloyd Hammond

we got in the mid 90's today seam 94 on the car checker while on our trip to sam's club. stopped at a wall-mart and bought a stand alone blinder, did not work as good as the one we already had so back it goes. we need to stop and start thinking better, Or maybe I just need to ckeck with Nancy better. good night.



Well, I don't know who I'm talking to since no one has been in here since 9 o'clock this morning.  Everyone must be EXTREMELY busy elsewhere.

I'm off to bed now and I must say, I didn't get as much accomplished today as I had planned since my son's "guys" were so busy they couldn't take time to move my freezer and bookshelf.  So the boxes are waiting for that to happen....maybe tomorrow!

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

Good morning everyone..

Yesterday  went in a blurr. Our trip to town took longer than thought.we took the garbage away then into town to pick up plastic.  Kyle wanted wheel dollys also but none to be found in town. I stopped at Lynns to pick up two pieces  of fabric , they weren't big piece just scraps and she gave them to me. I chuckled and said I had better buy some fabric ...and I did :))

Today is picking up meds and a card then home to quickly tidy up and the sew.

Jane, I didn't sneak in a nap yesterday..but I sure slept sound last night. Hope today is the day the fellas move your stuff for you.

Phyliss, we had your custard cooked in the IP....so soothing. Gave my neighbour your recipe as she loves custard.

Lloyd,  I doubt if folks will get a second crop of hay off here..everything is burning up.

Gloria........where your witch is going will really be hot...maybe she is trying to get used to the temp?? At least you can stay nice and cool.....plus safe too!

Better get a move on and get things done before it gets too hot..

Enjoy your day everyone...stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  So far it's still cool here but it's supposed to hit 93 sometime today.  I already told Mickie that our noon walk is out.  I'm not even going to make her walk to the mailbox with me today!  I think she really minds the heat these days so well stick to quick "yardies" and save the walk till the sun goes down behind the hill.  Of course, we'll manage one right after breakfast which is coming up soon.

I think it might be time for the boinger so I'll bid you all GOOD DAY!  Make it your own in every way!  And PLEASE come by and share it with your good friends!

Good morning everyone, according to the forecast today will be the start of a heat wave-that means 90 and over for at least 3 days. Yuck.Well I can stay in with my AC running. As long as we do not lose power we will be OK.

AMY  it is terrible when dogs are so scared of the sound of thunder. No matter what  we do they either do not want you to touch them or they stick  to you llike glue. Glad you got the needed rain though.

JANE  hope every thing is moved now and just where you want it. That is a big job. Hope Mickie was OK with all those men in the house.

PHYLLIS  always good to see your post. The heat makes us all lazy but then I feel like I am a lazy  old lady all the time lately.

LLOYD better think twice before buying anything or check with Nancy first.

AMY  the witch is taking more days off lately and it is always peaceful when she is out of the building.

JANE  wish I had something to share but the days are the same with nothing unusual. My son called last night and said he would be here earlier today so he can get back home before the heat builds up.

Have a good day and stay cool and safe.

Good morning, Friends!  I had a look at the week ahead forecast and would like to just sleep through. Every day to be upper 90s to 100s and that sure isn't my pick of fav weather! Got to get a move on because that pool needs a good cleaning today or won't stay sparkling. Cats are not listening this morning. Callie came on in for her breakfast tuna but Tom & Tiger just look at me like they don't hear. Tuna is usually their favorite meal but I'm guessing they filled their tummy with their own catch. I tell myself "that is nature", but would rather they eat what someone else caught.

I've been busy e-mailing some of my classmates for news about our friend whose wife was killed last week, where to send sympathy/get well cards. As far as I know he is still in ICU in a lot of pain with his injuries and I'm sure a lot more pain with losing his wife and not being able to have any service for her until ... don't know when.

Better get moving, Tom & Tiger still refusing to come in. Guess I will feed myself, get dressed and on with the day. It is very still right now, should be watering the yard, starting to look green again but the week ahead will take a toll on the grass. Wonder why it doesn't bother weeds when so hot and dry. Wishing all a Super Saturday!

Oops, you slipped in, Gloria. Like you, I'll spend my days in AC and hope the power holds up. When talking to my daughter yesterday the phone went dead, usually a problem on my end but she called back & said lightning had knocked their power out & she had to go see how many clocks she had to reset. Wonder why people quit putting up "lightning rods" anymore. We have one that was on my gr-mother's house, the rod was melted on the end attached to the house but glass ball not broken. When we found it when the house was being cleaned out, he said, "it did it's job. That copper wire that ran to the ground saved the house."

Good Morning everyone. the Holden weather guesser says 77º already @6:50 C T S.
But it is over cast here now. I slept good after I got to sleep, but that took a while before I got my head to shut down for the night. Have a good day everyone. Gloria I always get the last word, ( YES DEAR ) don't hit me again I am behaving.



Thanks, Amy.  The Egg Custard sounds good to me today, too.  A nice light dessert on a hot day when you don't want too much to eat.

We had a good rain storm last night.  I wish I could share it with those of you who need it more than we do.

Take care, All.


I am staying in.........way too hot out now.....84 ° in the shade.

We got a surprise this morning when going through Timmies, the lady in the vehicle ahead of us paid for the coffee we ordered.  On the way home and thankfully off the road on a side hill stood 2 deer eating....nice to see and hope they stay off the road.

Just helped the neighbour load and unload the 2 trugs
 they wanted.so now to head to the sewing room after I fold some laundry.

Just wanted to say HI !!

Not much to talk about as I don't do anything much anymore.  It is supposed to in the 90's here in the central Atlantic area, so I will be staying in.  I don't really mind the hot weather, but will wait until the sun is gone from our little sitting area.  It seems to get a lot nicer in the late afternoon, even usually have a little breeze.

Getting to be lunchtime, so I just thought I would stop by just to say Hello!

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoy the rest of your day.



Reporting in as "instructed"  ;D

Shirley,  every time I read about "Callie" the cat I have to remind myself you're not talking about me!  :D
My reaction this morning was...."tuna? for breakfast??  :shakehead:  :shakehead:  :shakehead:  

I'm pretty much caught up on needed Domestic Duties, don't need to do any cooking and long ago turned food preserving, etc. over to the dil who, I understand, is currently making Christmas pickles from my recipe.

I've done the Daily Goals and solved the Daily Challenge for 4 solitaire games, run the sprinkler on the flower beds, read the paper, put in a load of laundry and gotten a birthday card in the mail in time for the mailman.
 Hope to work on the family  history biographies this afternoon and maybe do some organizing and planning for the photo album son wants me to put together for their 20th anniversary.

And that's the news from this corner.       



IT is going to be a HOT one here again today.  My late mothers side of the family is getting together in a park today and we really would like to have gone but the numbers are rising here and we are trying to be extra careful again.  It will be much too hot to be out also, so sadly I do not think we will attend. Sure would like to see them all 🥵 😷

Mark and Megan came by with the boy yesterday.  We sat outside on the deck for a bit under the umbrella, but finally had to get inside to the A/C.  Megan went to spend time with a friend so Mark stayed and chatted while Jonah took his nap🥰🥰 That little guy is so cute....chatting a lot more now and is a lot of fun to be with🥰🥰 Daddy is going out of town for a job interview tomorrow😩 HAPPY for him about a prospective job but can't help but be sad it is not in Colorado😘

Seems everyone is keeping busy in spite of the heat that most of you are having🙀

LLOYD, I sent you a personal message on here....I hope you got it? 

Take care and enjoy your day, EVERYFRIEND😻

Denver how did you send the massage ? do not find it in email. do not know on S & F how to get if it is here, it is still 84º here now was 94 earlier. too hot to get out. see you all tomorrow here by the AC. good night and sweet dreams.



End of the day and it's been a busy one!  I'm still working on the two back rooms but I have a bag for Good Will and another one for the trash and a container of material and sewing stuff for Christy.  She said, "Don't get rid of any material.  I'll take anything you don't want."  So she's getting it all.  If there's anything she doesn't want SHE can toss it!

Now I'm off to bed and I hope for a good sleep.  I'm really tired.  Tomorrow, I hope to finish the two-room changeover.  I haven't actually tossed everything I should but I have all the tubs labeled and I can do one whenever I feel like it.  I do have 3 empty tubs so I guess I got rid of some stuff.

SANDY, it was nice to see a post from you and to know that all your family is avoiding Covid.  I hope it stays that way for you all.

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

Good morning evryone..

Today is going to be one of the worst days for heat....guess it is a stay in the house day and sew..

Jane how is your arm/shoulder holding up with all this extra work?

Sandy, great to hear all is well in your neck of the woods..This heat sure zaps the energy out of everyone.

Lloyd, on the left you will see User then your photo and name under that you will see PM (Private message) click on that and you will find your message from Denver.

Jenny, bet you had a lot of fun with Jonah!! Hope you took a lot of photos to share.

Callie, I did get a chuckle out of your post. I have yet to hear from Shirley that Callie stay out all night carousing about. :2funny:

Joy, thank goodness for the little breezes as they make all the difference in the blistering days.

Phyllis, our custard is all gone......may make another one today ,one for us and one for our neighbour as she likes it also . She has to work today and won't have to worry about dessert.

Shirley ,hope you found the information on where to send the cards. Sad times we are in and this makes it sadder for the gentleman.

Gloria, I had a Scotch collie that did not like storms, she told you one was coming hours before it came. Her teeth would rattle and her favourite  place to be in the storm was in the bathroom wrapped around the throne  and she would not move until the storm was over.

I had better get a move on,do what needs to be done then coast for the day.

Enjoy your  day everyone ,stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend! And a special "Good Morning to you AMY" because you're here.

As to my arm...it's never going to have the strength it had before but I've had a "go ahead" from the dr. to use it as much as I need to.  Sometimes it hurts when I use it and usually it doesn't but I know it isn't as strong so I try to put weight on the other are and just guide with the left.  Fortunately, I'm right-handed so that's probably what I've done all my life.  The difference is, I never had to think about it before.  But it works and I'm glad of that!

My plan for today is to finish up the bedroom so that if I have company (usually Frankie) she'll have a place to sleep that doesn't look like a storeroom.  My secondary plan is to get all the "extra" stuff out of my bedroom so it looks like a bedroom again.  If those two things get accomplished, I'll be happy!

AMY and anyone else who is interested. I've given up on the Instant Pot!  I gave it to Christy and I think she's had it about 3 weeks and has already used it half a dozen times.  That's probably more than I used it in all the time I had it.  I really prefer my Crock Pot and I'm looking at a new, updated one.  They'll probably update it 6 more times before I decide to buy one but one can dream!  And I also am thinking of an Air Fryer but I've been thinking of that since before the instant pot.  I do dream a lot!

Now, back to reality.  It must be almost time to feed Mickie and me and then get a walk in before the temp reaches 90º!  When it gets that high, I hibernate!  Even if my car was back, I wouldn't go out in that kind of weather!  I wonder how I stood it when I was a kid?  In fact, I wonder how my parents and grandparents stood it.  There wasn't such a thing as A/C back then!

I'm off to feed Mickie and myself and then get to work!  I wish you all a lovely day!  Make it your own in every way!  And don't forget to SHARE it with your friends here!

Good Morning everyone. it Is already 78º here @6:52 A M going to says 88º but i think it will go on into the ninety's. stay in and stay cool, we are going to daughters for a birthday party for great grand sons birthday. Have a good day. I still haven't found Denver's post for me. ate up with the dead head,



Good morning everyone. I really do not know how people living in the south put up with this weather so many days in the summer. Just like I do not know how my daughter can live off the grid in 100 degree weather  with a swamp cooler to keep cool. 78 already

SHIRLEY  are you longing for winter like I am?

AMY  NOT WEATHER TO DO ANY LOADING OF ANYTHING OUTSIDE. Stay inside where at least y ou should be cooler and out of the sun.

JOY  nice seeing you.  Sinde they cut down all the fine trees in the back of the building there is no shade to sit in. Never see anyone out of their apartments either.

CALLIE at first when Shirley mentioned Callie I thought she was talking about you till I realized it was the cat.

JENNY  to hot to be outside. I know you enjoy your little one. My little one will be 5 next week.

AMY  my son's dog-the one I called mine- did not like storms either but she would hide in a corner and did not want to be touched. I guess she felt safer in  a corner than any othe place.

JANE  I remember my Mom canning in the summer. We had a big old cast iron stove she had to light up to cook on. It  must have been so hot it that kitchen without even a fan.

Have a good day, keep cool and safe.

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a good day?

I really could not bear the kind of temperatures some of you are having just now! It is 5pm here and 15C (59F) and that is fine for me. We did have a very hot and sunny day yesterday, but I think most of you would have found it quite cold!

Yesterday we went for a fabulous walk along the cliff tops from Stonehaven to Dunottar Castle and back. Stonehaven is a small town on the coast, about 10 miles south of Aberdeen - it has a pretty harbour, which was very busy even when we arrived around 10am. We lived just outside the town many years ago, and although I have been back since then this time I really noticed how many smart new cafes and gift shops have moved in - back in the 1990s it was still a very traditional fishing town. The walk starts behind the houses on the quay, and rises up quite steeply to the clifftops. Nowadays there is a proper path, all very safe - when I used to do it back then you just found your way round the edge of the cliffs, and I recall once doing that in thick fog.

Yesterday was clear and sunny with a good breeze. The path was quite busy in places, but most people did wait to let others pass at a good distance. You can see the castle as you follow the path - it is very dramatic. Normally you can visit the inside, although it is so derelict that 'inside' really means walking around the ruins and one or two proper rooms that are still intact. It is a very atmospheric place.  I don't think it was actually open this weekend, but I heard someone say how much they now charge for admission and I was quite glad we hadn't any plans to go in anyway! The castle dates from the Middle Ages, and was also the place where the Scottish Crown Jewels were hidden from Oliver Cromwell's invading army. I don't know if this picture will work:

When we came back we did some gardening, our little garden is looking quite good at the moment, and I potted up the last seedlings that I had growing in my mini-greenhouse - mostly parsley, night-scented stock and marigolds. I also had a few sunflowers so i have hopefully planted them out, but I do wonder if it is too late in the season already for them to make much progress. My daughter has grown some in Edinburgh and they are doing really well, but she started earlier and the side of the house she is growing them on is in full sun and very hot.

Last week my son let us know that he has now passed all of his assessments and is a fully qualified ambulance technician. We are so proud of him. I hope he will now be able to get onto the paramedic course as soon as possible, as if he doesn't do that soon he will be obliged instead to take a full university degree (and pay for it) and I very much doubt he would bother. He would still have a good job as a technician, but the paramedic training would bring more money and also more options for working in different parts of the NHS.

Last night we watched a great film on Prime - 'Fishermen's Friends'. It based on a true story, and is about a group of fishermen in Port Isaac (the same village where Doc Martin is filmed) who used to get together to sing sea shanties. They are 'discovered' by a London record executive who is down there for a friend's stag weekend, and he decides to try to get them a recording contract. Meanwhile various other things are happening in the locals' lives. It's a lovely film, nothing too awful happens, the singing is great, and there are lots of very funny scenes. If you need a nice easy thing to watch, with lots of Cornish scenery and humour, I'd recommend it.

Our coronavirus restrictions have been lifted a little this week. Our First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has urged everyone to 'Keep the Heid' ('keep your head') and not to think it is fine to forget all the rules. Our numbers are now very low in Scotland, but as she so rightly pointed out, they could so easily rise again and we will end up with another lockdown. No-one wants that. I and my friends are still being careful - i don't need or want to go to big stores, eat out, or anything like that. I just continue to go for walks, do the garden, read, review, and meet up with friends (one at a time) for 'socially distanced' walks and chats. Last week a friend and I walked at Forestry Commission land and didn't see a soul. The views up there were great too.

And now I think I must take a little walk to the Co-Op - I went to the supermarket on Friday night but as usual I forgot something. We are so lucky to have these two excellent little stores within walking distance.

Have a good evening everyone,

Best wishes,



A Good Sunday HELLO to ALL.

SANDY, how nice to read that your family is doing well and staying healthy during this scary Covid time.  I hope your A/C will continue to keep you cool during these hot summer days.  We are having some really hot temperatures also and I am so thankful to have A/C and to be able to afford to run it!  We open up at night most of the time, but recently we have had to keep the air on as it did not cool down enough. 

LLOYD, I just put my finger on your name and then sent you a message from there.  My email address is on my page here, so maybe you can just put your finger on my name and see it?  If not, I will just type it in for you as anyone can get it on here anyway....

JANE, it appears you are getting close to having everything arranged nicely in your home. We need to do some more clean out, but something keeps me from getting motivated🤪 Happy to read that your arm is doing better and building up some strength, but of course, I a: sure it will never be quite as strong as it was.

AMY, we did have a delightful visit with Mark and Jonah but I do not think I took one single picture😩😩  I am sure holding good thoughts that you will not have a tornado 🌪 today🙏🙏. Thank you for trying to help LLOYD find the info. 

GLORIA, these little ones just grow up much too quickly.  Hard to believe your great grand can be nearly 5 already.  I, too, just do not think I could deal with the triple digit temperatures any more.  Mark called from his interview location a bit ago and it is 114 there today 😩😩  I know he does not like the heat tha5 much either but good golfing locations are generally in 🔥 places!  UGH!

Thank you, BUBBLE, for the clickable to view the pictures. 

ROSEMARY, 59 degrees at 5 PM sounds wonderful to me right about now! 
In fact, your entire post was delightful to read.  I tried to imagine the walk with you and it must have been so enjoyable. Congratulations to your son and I do hope he will get in the the paramedic course soon. 

Have a good rest of your Sunday.



I'm on my way to bed but I had to stop by to see what ya'll have been up to today!  Sounds like you all had nice days...ROSEMARY walkd, JENNY talked with son, AMY grew blossoms, and everyone enjoyed the day!

AMY that pumpkin blossom looks humungous!  I sure hope you get pumpkins this year.  Everyone, she's not going to be making Jack O'Lanterns out of these pumpkins.  They're what we always call "crookneck" pumpkins and they make the BEST pies you ever ate no matter what!  They always had them on the farm when my dad was growing up and they're the only kind he planted in our back-yard gardens.  And they're what he told me I needed to get when I baked my first pumpkin pie.  AMY's pumpkins are growing from Pennsylvania seeds.  So I'm hoping for the best!  I also have some seeds growing in Texas in my daughter's back yard but she ming not see them.  I think their house might be sold.  They are moving to Oklahoma.

And that reminds me... Callie, my first Scottie as a grown up was named Callie. so you can be a dog or a cat whichever suits your fancy!

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!

well it never worked for Me Denver. so I am going to go take my shot and go to bed. Good night and sweet dreams. see you all tomorrow.



Good morning everyone..

Well ,we did get a storm..power on and off but thankfully it didn't stay off for very long. High winds caused problems in some areas but we were fine here. I had flattened everything that I could just in case.

We are off to the city for an appointment for hubby. Dogs are being left home with the neighbours coming over to let them out. We don't like leaving them home but in this hot weather they are much better. The area where we are going has been 29 days covid free so that take a bit of worry off.

Jane, I have told David that if we do get a bumper crop of pumpkins he will be the recipient of many. She will can them down for pies plus his 2 great danes love pumpkin on their food. These vines have taken over!! Underneath the umbrella like leaves are my beans!! Thank you for explaining the "pumpkins" for me.

Jenny,I have not seen blossoms this big....they don't last long but are so delicate and pretty to see. No tornado this way but other areas had wind damage with trees/limbs down.

Gloria, a cloudy day here and I hope it stays that way till we get back home. Just wish it was cooler.

Better get moving.
Enjoy your day everyone stay safe.

I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
