Good morning. 

I just stopped by to say Hello and to see if there was any news from Jean and Larry.  I just heard that Pensocola had been hit hard and they are not very far from there. So, I am sure they are feeling a lot of the storm.  Just hope they are safe and won't have a lot of damage.

Will check back later.

Please stay safe.

Good morning everyone, 56 now, warmer than yesterday when I shivered when I got up. I knew the heat here would not be on yet but turned the thermostat up and not heat. Thought the maintenance man might have turned it on since the witch has not been in for almost 2 weeks. She is not missed either. My phone appointment with my NP went good. She told me she would see about getting a vampire here for blood work. Got a call yesterday from a nurse telling me she would be here today between 8 and 10. This will be short because I have to get dressed now and be ready for her. Of all days to wake later. Hope she will be here before 10 I am already hungry and have that fast.

JUNEE  so good to see you drop in. I sure miss you.

I read every thing but no time to reply.

    Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

good morning every one. it is 61º and calling for high of 81º today. hope you all have a great day.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's almost time for the boinger and breakfast.  Then I have to get a shower, take Mickie for a walk and make a quick trip to Davy's (That's the Mennonite Store with the GREAT local produce and lots of other good stuff).  Cooper will be arriving around 10:30 while his Mommy goes to work.  Don't know what the rest of the day will bring.

Forgot to mention that I also did 3 loads of laundry yesterday and folded and put it away. 

I hope you all have a great day!
Make it your own in every way! (don't share it with any bugs!)

And come on in to the Soda Shoppe to share it with your good friends. We miss you when you're not here!

I think I detected a SMILE from Down Under!  Was that our JUNEE?

Shirley, on the Nature's Bakery Bars and your question about "soy".  The ones I have on hand, Raspberry, do not have Soy.  Also, the Double Chocolate Brownie ones, which I'm not particularly fond of, do NOT have Soy.  They have dates, cocoa and whole grains, whole wheat flour.  I don't remember seeing Soy on any of the others I've bought, and I research this pretty well, as my BFF has allergies to almost everything, including Soy, and I check the boxes out, and she loves them, as it is something she CAN actually eat.  I didn't list the following, which they have: Whole Wheat Fig Bars, Gluten Free Fig Bars and Oatmeal Crumble Bars (I didn't like those), but to each his/her own!  If you do have a Kroger's they probably have these products. 

Lloyd Hammond

Good afternoon everyone. just checking in to see who may be here. is 73º and sunny, and that was supposed to be the high for here today.

Lloyd

Shirley

Thanks, Tome, I will write down the name & have my gr-daughter check them out. She does a lot of her own cooking but always happy to find something to like that she can just enjoy!  She tested positive for the virus but only thing/symptom was blood clots in her legs. Was exposed at work & cleared to return, an Engineer for aircraft company, unmarried but looking <grin>. She is pushing 30, independent type & makes more money than a lot of the guys her age, so expect she scares them off.  Terrible age, especially for girls, I think.

We have a hazy sky, "filtered" sun, but feels hot to me. Mowers came this morning but I have nothing to show for my day. Need to get busy, daughter will be in town tomorrow and I think I have some things in a corner that need to go back into the RV that was in the same spot last time she was here. I started cleaning stuff out after getting back from CO, thinking it time to go smaller. Trouble with that thought is nothing smaller I want so may as well keep what I have, at least I know it's warts! I have an appointment in the morning to have the front tires balanced to see if that is cause for the "shimmy" at highway speeds. Had the tires balanced last year after buying the new front tires. Not sure what the warranty was on that job. Went to the place the tire guy suggested.  ::)

Hi, Lloyd, you slipped in & I wouldn't have noticed if I had not scrolled all the way to the bottom. I am sure that is how I've lost so many posts. I'm waiting to go to MO when the trees start changing colors, sure got the itch to get away. Hi to Nancy!

JaneS

Hello Everyfriend! I'm ready to hit the hay!  I just got off the phone with my sister.  She's the one who just lost her husband and I think she's having a hard time adjusting.  She calls me about once a week and we talk for more than an hour.  I think it helps her and I like all the reminiscing. 

It's been a long day and I'm ready to make my exit for the day.  I think I'll head for the barn and the haystack.  It was pretty comfortable there last night.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy day!  And may God bless us, every one!

Good evening, EVERYFRIEND.

Busy day of some very needed accomplishments🤪🤪.   No canning like is going on in other places but we sure can see well out of our windows😘. What a job it was, and I was just a bit of support for my honey!

I have been hungry for Chile, so today was the day to fix it and it sure tasted yummy. 

BOB talked to his sister and they did not have any damage to their home or their sons homes in Panama City, but they did get a LOT of rain.  They were not sure about any of the rest of the family there. The bridge that was damaged near Pensacola sure is not going to be a easy fix. Thankfully we have heard for Jean in that area and she and Larry did not have any damage to their home either, but did get a lot of rain of course. Now we watch Teddy as he lookslike another scary storm😩

GLORIA, I do hope your time with the vampire went well.  Did you notice any difference in the amount of blood that was taken over times before?

JANE, I am happy your sis has you to talk and reminisce with as I am sure she is lonely.  I can only try to imagine how hard it must be after your spouse passes😩

SHIRLEY, best of luck to you tomorrow....you have had so many issues to deal with since you bout the new motorhome😩

I hope you all have a good night of rest.

Jenny

Good Night and sweet dreams. see you all in the Morning.

Good morning everyone.  I just about got dressed and the bed made and the vampire was here, took 4  vials of blood. Guess the NP wants to check everything. She was good, hardly felt the needle. My veins are  great so hadly had to tighten the strap around my arm. Glad she got here early so I could have my breakfast and coffee. I sure fasted more than the 14 hours they wanted. 56 now and looking at the forecast it will not get out of the  60's today. With the smokey sky the sun cannot do much to warm it up. If it  gets much colder it will be time to get the geemagotchees out.

JENNY  I had been thinking of Joan's son and the house on the island. I remember when it was damaged in a storm years ago and how he had it rebuilt on stilts. I hope they were strong enough to escape Sally.

JANE  for one person you sure do a lot of laundry. Yvette does mine on Wednesday. Gets expensive here.  $1.75 for the washer and the same for the dryer. $3.50 a load. Yes it was nice to see Junee's name show up yesterday.

LLOYD  73 is about the best temperature, would live with that all year.

SHIRLEY  since I moved here I enjoyed looking out each morning and liked how the maples changed overnight. They all started getting red at the top and eash day the red was further down. This year the one near the exit to the par king lot is an orange color and all the others are still green. Must have been the weather this year. I miss the beautiful red on them.

JANE  last night I was in bed at 8:30 and woke at 4:30 this morning.

JENNY  it had been almost a year since I had the blood work and they usually take 1 or 2 this time was 3.

Looks like I am the first one here this morning.
Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone..

Woke to pink clouds in the sky. and a temp of 30° We must have had some frost also. I think all the garden will be cleaned up soon. no more tucking it in at night with the tarps.

Have a few chores that need to be done and others that can wait. We picked up 40 lbs of beets  10 lbs of carrots and 10 lbs of potatoes yesterday so beets will be pickled today and carrots and potatoes canned another day.

Jenny, windows are on the to do list here but after I finish canning etc. Right now there are too many wasps flying by and I don't want them in the house!

Gloria, 73 ° is perfect I too could live with that..

Better get a move on here.

Enjoy your day and stay safe everyone..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Right now the temp is 61º and the high is only supposed to be 66 today.  I was already out in the yard with Mickie and while she poked around, I picked tomatoes.  I had two containers of red ones (abut 4 or so quarts canned).  I guess picking the little green ones that were not destined to grow up gave the others some growing room.  Now what do I do with those?  Maybe just can them in chunks?  Maybe make some gooood spaghetti sauce out of them?

GLORIA, the laundry I did yesterday was the first I've done in almost 3 weeks!  I don't think that's a lot for an old lady who lives alone!

Mickie and I are just waiting for the boinger and then the day begins.  I have to prepare for company.  I'm not sure if they're coming tonight or tomorrow morning.  I sent a text to my daughter but she hasn't answered it yet.

I'm glad to hear our friends in the hurricane area are all safe!  I don't think I'd want to live where that kind of thing occurred regularly! It must be nerve-wracking!

I guess I better get going or I wont be ready for company no matter when they come. 

I wish you all a lovely day!

Good Morning everyone. we have good sunny sky today. wasn't asleep all the time took a while to get my mind
to clear and settle down. but the tattle tail on my breathing machine said 9.5 hours. I suspect I acutely got at least 7 good hours of rest. hope you all had a good rest also. I have truck tires to change and fix today. three of them for Shure. It is a duly wheeled truck. I was circling around the driveway and ran one off the rim and tore the side wall out of it in two places. the good thing I have several good used ones, so do not have to go buy any. see you all Later.

JaneS good morning . looks like you slipped in while I was typing, what the tattle tai said anyway.

Good Night, we just got home a birthday parity for our ten year old granddaughter, time for this old people to hit the hay. sweet dreams hope to see you all tomorrow.

Boy!  The echoes are pounding around the walls in here today!  After I posted around 8 this morning there were a couple posts from LLOYD about 12 hours apart and that's it!  Everyone must be busy up the gazoo!

I had a very eventful evening.  After supper, I took Mickie and Cooper for separate walks....Mickie first.  When we got back, the smoke alarms were going off.  I went in and shut them off and took Cooper for his walk.  When we got back...same thing.  I shut them off again and 10 minutes later they're squealing again. This went on for over an hour and they went off 16 times while I was trying to figure out how to take the batteries out of them  I started unscrewing them all from the ceiling and when I got to the last one, I found out, they don't have batteries.  They're wired into the fuse box and all I needed to do was turn off the switch.  I left a message for the guy who installed them and maybe he can figure out what's going on.  They're really new so hopefully, still in warranty.

Now I'm going to bed and hopefully to sleep better again tonight.  Christy will be arriving from Maryland in the morning and her husband is coming in late afternoon.  I didn't get my cherry pie baked today so that's my plan for the morning....hopefully before my company arrives. 

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

Good morning everyone..

A heavy frost is decorating the ground this morning. Birds have cleaned 3/4 of the berries on the Mountain Ash...next will be the flowering crab tree.

Yesterday was a busy one and I still have one more batch of beets to do...the last of the 40 lbs. 

Today is finish and clean up the kitchen and put away the 36 jars that were done yesterday.

Jane, I hope the man can figure out why the alarms are going off..and shhhh them for you.

Better get ready to get to work..

Enjoy your day everyone.. stay safe..

Good brrr morning everyone, 41 and now that is cold. The heat has been turned on, thank goodness the maintenance man thinks more of us elderly in this building than the manager does. She has not been in the building in 2 weeks and it has been nice.

AMY  pink in the clouds? not red? You know what they say about red sky in the morning? I think we will be happy when the wind changes direction and we start seeing blue sky and white clouds again.

JANE  cannot beat the taste of spaghetti sauce made with fresh tomatoes or tomatoes you canned. Wow after 3 weeks I would have nothing clean left to wear. ;)

LLOYD  you sure get into messes without trying. Hope you were careful changing those tires.

AMY  no frost here, just cold and the heat is on and warming up in here. Will have to be getting winter clothes out soon if this keep up.

Have a good day everyone keep safe and warm.

Good Morning Everyfriend! It's time for breakfast in this house and I've been working hard ever since I got up.  It's down in the mid 40s overnight around here but tonight it's supposed to hit the high 30s.  You don't suppose winter is on the way, do you?

GLORIA, in that 3 week period, I did wash out some of my "unmentionables".  As for the other clothes, I haven't outgrown anything in some 25 years now and I needed decent working clothes so I'm pretty well supplied.  I sometimes look at something in a store or on a website that I like and I tell myself, "You don't need any more clothes".

The boinger has already gone off so I guess I better get on to breakfast, Mickie walks and finishing up around here for company.  Christy always texts me when she's leaving her driveway and I know I have about 2 and a half hours until she gets here.  She hasn't texted yet.

I hope you all have a great day!

A good Saturday HELLO to EVERYFRIEND 💐💐

I did a software update on my iPhone and iPad and everything is different today.  I even had to re-log into here😩🤪

We are still really Smokey here again today.  We went out yesterday afternoon to try to take some things to donate and our eyes were really bothering us even after using eye drops over and over.  Just NOT good!  BTW, we drove to two donation centers and both were closed.  Went by again this morning and they were still closed but said open at 12 PM.  Went back and finally got our goods delivered but we had to wait in a line of 10 cars🤣🤣🤣

JANE, I do hope Christy has arrived safely.  Enjoy the time you have together😘

GLORIA, sure happy to read the maintenance man has turned on your heat! 

AMY, I have to say, we sure are enjoying our clean windows....we were really in need of getting them done. 

Nothing else going on around here.

Enjoy your day😘

Jenny

JaneS

Another uneventful day in the Soda Shoppe!  Only one post between mine around 8 this morning and this one a little after 10 tonight. 

JENNY, I'm sure glad you popped in or I'd really be lonesome!  Our Goodwill isn't taking any donations right now and the guy I talked to couldn't tell me when they would.  I guess their stores aren't doing much business right now and they don't have room for any more "stuff".

Christy arrived safely and so did her husband...and their two dogs.  Right now, we're a 4 dog household because Cooper is also staying with us today.  If you think that's not a "fun" and "watch your step" time you must be crazy. 

Now I'm headed for bed.  We've had a busy day around here. No time for a nap and I'm dragging.  My guests are bedded down and I'm heading for the haystack.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

AND PLEASE COME IN THE SODA SHOPPE FOR A VISIT!  IT'S WAAAAAAY TOO QUIET IN HERE!

good night everyone. I am on my way to bed, have taken my shot and night time pills,

Lloyd

Shirley

I'm here to say "sweet dreams and God Bless" to all. Busy day here as well. When my daughter is in town she keeps everyone stirred up, a ball of fire. Great grands played soccer games except the 6 year old had to go to the doctor...  intestinal issue & not the virus. She had this before and with Crohn's in the family (her father, gr-mother, an aunt for sure and another aunt & uncle that "watch what they eat" ... a little fearful it might be another Crohn's diagnosis. Have to wait and see.

In the meantime.... I've just been busy cleaning house & the pool. Time for those trees to start dumping leaves into the pool, then the nightmare begins! Can't cover too early or it will get icky before spring. This year we didn't even have to "shock it" to turn that perfect color. Always plenty to do, feeding cats & cleaning litter boxes. I do have fun, too!

Better go get out what to wear to church in the morning. Since families can sit together I will save the whole pew. The one in front & behind will be roped off... the auditorium is also used with chairs & benches, enough room so everyone can safely distance and all wear masks. Different world we are living in. We pick up McDonalds & go to the park that joins the zoo, great place to visit & walk & new playground for the kids. Guess it is sanitized regularly.

Wishing all a Super Sunday after a restful sleep.  Shirley  :hello:  :walkwhistle:  :winkie:

Good morning everyone..

Chilly morning here with a temp of 28° . I did cover the pepper plants up but will pick what is left and that is it for tucking the garden in. The pumpkin squash are all in and the one must go 16lbs lot of pies in that one!

Today is a day of rest. Beets are done  :cheer: I just have to label and put away. Floor did get washed as I couldn't stand it any longer.

Jane , have fun with your family.

Gloria, the clouds looked like cotton candy and we didn't get any adverse weather from them. Birds here are striping the trees of the fruit and berries. Think they know something we don't?

Shirley, it seems you were just opening the pool and now time to close it. We are so busy in the summer that time seems to fly by.

Jenny, the one place in the city is taking donations but the SA isn't as of yet. We do have a bunch of "stuff" to go when they do accept.

Good morning Lloyd,

Better scoot.

Enjoy your day everyone and stay safe.

I came earlier & thought I left a post but probably Lloyd & I were posting at the same time and I didn't go back to double check & click post again.  Had only 3 hours & 7 min sleep, (so Fitbit says) not enough for this old lady so after church & breakfast in the park, I'll be finding the missing zzzzzzzzs.

Good morning, Amy!  I hear some of the thrift shops are open for donations here, not all. I keep sorting & then dump back together because other things more pressing & I need the space where I'm sorting.

A cool 60° this morning, love it. Enjoy the day, can't live it over, smile and nobody can tell anymore with the masks!  :-\  :'(
