Good Morning!  Nice new start for a new day!  I like everything but I think my favorite is the latin phrases!

I've been up since 2:30 following a sick doggie around the house and cleaning up after her.  I don't know what brought it on but she's hit the floor of every room in the house except the storage room and some of them she did twice.  I've gone through almost a whole roll of paper towels and half a spray bottle of Vinegar cleaner.  At least she only got one rug one time.  But I didn't get much sleep at all. 

Now for the new day.  She seems to be better and is (I think) asking to go out.  We'll see what that brings.  And I wonder what to do about breakfast?  I guess we'll play that by ear too.

I hope you all had a better night than I did and that your day is perfect!

Good morning everyone, this will be short . Eyes are giving me  trouble and cannot wait for my eye appointment in November. Called that doctor's office yesterday to see if I could get in  before that but no luck. 

JENNY  so glad for the latest news about Michele.

SHIRLEY  my insurance pays for the CNA with help from the state. I think doctors have something to do with requesting them, too. I really never gave it much thought. I just know that the insurance looked into it.

BUBBLE  THANKS FOR THE NEW MIDMONTH PAGE. Darn I keep hitting the cap lock and too lazy to type again.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone...

Here we are half way through August. Fall signs are about, geese in training flights, leaves are starting to get that tinge on them and dogs losing their hair like crazy!

Managed to get 24 jars of mainly bread and butter pickle with a few jars of dill pickles done and put away.  Today is laundry and not sure what else I will get into..maybe make bread too.

Bubble ,thank you for the new start page.....love the photo of the appy's!

Jane, hope tummies are settled now..and you can grab some zzz today.

Better scoot.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Joy

Marilyne and Beverly,

I tend not to talk about all my health problems, as there are so many that are a lot worse off than I am.

I am truly blessed as I feel well and only have a few minor side effects with the medicines that I take.  I have wonderful doctors.  I get good care and I am able to do what daily chores I have to do.  I just keep putting one foot in front of the other.  LOL 

Hope everyone will have a good day.

And,  Bubble, thank you for the new page this morning.  The Latin comments are good.

Good Morning,

Can't believe August is half done.  Work on the photo album is going slowly but semi-steadily.  Part of the issue are Domestic Duties that keep cropping up and part of it is that my hands aren't as agile as they used to be with small tasks (Imagine that  :D ).

Hope Everyfriend finds something to enjoy about today.

Sandy

The good news is
August is half done..

Not my favorite month
(but it is coming! )

Have a good weekend,
Everyone!

Morning again.  Mickie's tummy seemed to settle down by 8 this morning and I took a look at the paper, had a snack and a cup of coffee and decided it might be a good time to close my eyes.  After having had about 3 hours of sleep earlier, I added another 3 and a half hours and so did the dogs.  We are all feeling better and Mickie actually ate a doggie treat and it seems to be staying down.  I think we'll add something else slowly and see if that stays down too.

I didn't make it to the Farmers Market this morning but there's another one tomorrow and we'll see how the rest of today and tonight go.  I think Frankie is spending the night her but she's been known to changer her mind about that.  If she does, going to the produce market won't be a problem tomorrow.  If she doesn't it will be another 'play it by ear" day!

I wish you all a lovely day!  Make it your own in every way!  And don't forget to share it!

Wow Sandy.Fe is really growing up!!Beautiful girl.

Jane, glad to hear Mickies tummy is better......really worries us when furkids are sick.

I thought I might get the potatoes canned but that didn't happen......another days work.

Did you see this.

We just got in from delivering 2 loaves of bread to the neighbour and now both dogs are flat out on the cool tile floor.

Better go fold laundry..

Shirley

Sandy, I still think Fe looks exactly how I picture you at that age. Just darling.

Jane, my Tom has had a few days of not eating normal and Tiger a few days before. I thought probably since they are shedding & cleaning themselves so much (their hairbrush tells the tale) was the problem.

BUT my gr-daughter that tested positive for the virus had to take her dog to the vet & was a "highly contageous respiratory virus"..(did NOT run the covid-19 test on dog)... both are okay & gr-daughter back to work after 2 weeks of seclusion.I've been suggesting all my family take care about wiping their feet off when coming in the house. That brings up what the pups may catch on their feet when out walking. Glad she is better today.

I look at Tom and want to cry because I can't take him to the vet. I promised myself that I would not put these ferals in that position of taking them to a strange place & being so terrified of a vet getting near them. I called & begged the vet I took LaurenKat to, to see if I could bring the 3 in for shots in the RV & have one of the crew come into the RV to do it, but they refused. I figured cats would at least be in a familiar place & if in the cage (to open the door), easy for them to give the shots. So we do what we can.

Amy, I've never been around any Appy but think most of the ones I've seen in KS & MO were Thoroughbred or Quarter horse body shapes. Where I grew up the Tennesssee Walker was the "in" horse. I didn't own a horse but had the chance to ride quite a bit. My mother used to laugh that I'd want to bring one inside in bad weather... and probably right. Thanks for the heads up notice, I had not seen that (site down).

Bubble, great text & beautiful graphics, thank you.

I have done nothing but eat & sleep (and feed cats) today, am ready to head back for another nap but near time to feed cats again & walk down to the river.  I've been using the bottle of baby oil that I mashed up some out of date B-1 vitamins last year... working pretty good when I remember to lather it on. I put a few tablets in a ziploc snack bag & mash them fine as I could (with a hammer on the kitchen cabinet...) and even though they don't disolve completely, guess enough odor stays with the oil to keep the bugs away.

Another week end, mid 90s so far but very humid. Bring on winter, please!


Lloyd Hammond

well you all must have there days and nights mixed up. no one here today, except my self Jane and sandy and  Callie. Oh well have a good night and sweet dreams.

Lloyd

I stand corrected when I scrolled back I see Shirley also hope I never missed any one else.

JaneS

I'm going to bed.  It's been a strange day trying to make sure Mickie is OK, giving her small amounts of food to eat and short jaunts outside and seeing that Cooper (my great-granddog) got what he needed, and falling asleep almost every time I sat down.  Now I'm going to try for a whole night.  I think I must have been something Mickie picked up outside and ate because she seems like her old self tonight.  Cooper and Frankie went home for the night but I think he'll be back in the morning.

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

GURRRR....one slick little move and poof, my post is gone! 

Now, can I even remember what I wrote?  Sure hope so! 

Thank you, BUBBLE, for our nice clean SS.  I loved your Latin phrases.

First off, LLOYD, I am very sad that you evidently did not see my thank you, the VERY day your nice poem arrived, AND I sent you a email as well.  I told you that I was going to buy a frame for it, and I did.  I would have sent you a snail mail to you but the address on the envelope is the one from the place you mailed it, not your home address.  I did appreciate you sending it very much and I certainly hope you see this to know that I did get this AND that I did thank you.   
[-color=purple] AMY, that is a LOT of pickles that you canned yesterday😘  Your trug maker is going to be very happy!

JANE, I am happy to read Mickie is feeling better.  I hope you both have a good night of rest. 

  JOY, I am sorry to read of your cancer and on going issues.  I appreciate you sharing your on going chemo pills to keep you in remission.  I hope and pray that you continue doing well.  Michele did 8 Chemo pills a day for several months before a a tumor the size of a golf ball appeared on her brain. We were so thankful it presented on a morning when her daughter was home and could call for help as she had very little warning that anything was going on.  When she got to the hospital they discovered the tumor and many other spots in her body....the darn cancer had returned with vengeance. 
We hope and pray this maintenance chemo will be the magic one for her🙏🙏

  We continue to have hot dry days and the 4 forest fires in the state are going wild.   PHYLLIS, we could sure use some of the rain you are having.

  GLORIA, I do hope the eye doctors office put your name on a cancellation list.  November is a long time to wait.  Getting doctor appointments now after the mess with Covid is hard to do, as everyone is trying to get in now. 

  Thank you AMY for the heads up regarding this site being down.....I hope it will not be for too long of a time. BTW, that was a LOT of pickles you canned yesterday.....your trug maker will be very happy😘

  Pleasant dreams to all.

  Jenny

Amy

Good morning everyone..
Yup it is still morning :)

We had a dandy storm this morning with more to follow later today. Rain came so fast it lay in puddles till it slow penetrated the hard ground.

Thank you Michael for getting us up and running again..

Better see what is for lunch.

Take care and enjoy your day....stay safe.
