Good morning...

Another day of sunshine with a bit of cloud, temp is sitting at 50° at the moment.

We are off to another town but first we are picking up a orbital sander in the city then go across country to the town. Shop in 3 stores then home again. We will do the trip to the town again on Sat, hopefully to pick up a portable washing machine that will see us through until our new one comes in. This will save me from going to the laundromat plus save money as it is $5.00 for each washer load.

Janie, sounds like you had a full day yesterday and so did Frankie, she sure is a blessing to you.

Patricia ,my favourite  seasons are Spring and Fall and Winter now..

Shirley, Kyle loves pickled beets but I will help him eat these. I like them when we have grilled cheese sandwiches but likes them all the time.

Phyllis, I love the pipes. Where I grew up a man two street over would play the pipes in the evening and the sound would grace your ears.

Gloria,I am going to start purging so that there will be little left to do ...all but my fabric :)

Better get a move on here

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

 Amy good Morning to you and everyone else that follow. I had what I am re doing ready to post and the gremlins came and ate it.  Amy we are 10º warmer than you are reporting this morning. otherwise we are the same with clear and warm with gentile breeze. have A great day just as you like it.

Lloyd

JaneS

Good Morning All Y'all!  Well, we're right in the middle between LLOYD and AMY with our temp...5 degrees cooler than LLOYD and 5 degrees warmer than AMY.  We're only heading for a high of 78 today.  This isn't like any August I can remember.  August usually sizzled!

Yes, AMY, Frankie IS a blessing!

Today is a "maybe" day.  I ran across my info for a local venison store and since I just finished off the last of my Christmas venison, it seemed like opportunity knocking.  I might try to make a trip down there one of these days and stock up with enough to get me through to Christmas.

Today would actually be a good day for a drive.  It's supposed to be cloudy and I like "cloudy" for driving anywhere. 

I woke up with a leg cramp last night and had to run to the fridge for some gatorade.  It always amazes me how quickly about 8 gulps of gatorade can treat a leg cramp.  And I have my grandson back at the age of about 12 or 13 to thank for that little bit of info.  I had a cramp in my leg at their house once and when I mentioned it, he never looked up from his meal...just said "give her some gatorade".  They did and it worked.  Now I keep gatorade around!

Time to take the doggies for their morning walk!  I hope you all have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Good morning everyone, I woke early, not quite 6 am so here I am with my coffee to start the day with my cyber family. 54 now and 77 for a high. Like these temperatures. My daughter is in for low  triple digits today and a few more days. Well the elevator guys were here before 7 yesterday and no one here to let them in. The new maintenance man does not live in the apartment available for him, he has a house and a wife and 4 kids. Then the witch never gets here till after 8:30 and her peon does not work on Monday.  They must have called the main office because the peon showed up to let them in and he left. They were done about 2 pm and left. Tried  to talk Yvette into not  coming because of the stairs but she knew I needed her so she came. She had to sit and massage her knees when she got here. At least she could go down in the elevator when she left. 

PATRICIA  don't think I would like only 5 hours of daylight although at times in the winter the days are kind of dark all day. The sky here now is weird, the clouds are a funny gray color, don't remember ever seeing them this shade before.

SHIRLEY  I think the version of PSP I have installed is 12. T he last one I bought was 16 and I installed it and a week lat er uninstalled it and it is just sitting there in the box. I liked 12 much better. I also have the old Jask 8 ins talled only for the animation and I never cared for that much, hate the blinking but like the softly falling snow effect.

JANE  wish I could have a homemaker come in one day a week for the things Yvette is not supposed to do. I know I used to wash walls and every thing in the spring but I cannot do that anymore and that is not what a CNA does, Bill will stop at the farm on Saturday before he gets here to get me some nice tomatoes from just over the border in Ct. A bit warmer there than here so their tomatoes are ripening already. He brought me 2 last week and boy did they ever taste good.

AMY  the washers and dryers here are each $2.50 a load so $5.00 a load really. The CNAs say this is the most expensive senior housing for those machines than all the other ones  and half the time one of the 4 washers of 4 dryers is not working. Never know it till the money is in the machine already and they never give it back to you. Regina made her first batch of relish yesterday. She had to use the zucchinies she had before they went bad. Better yesterday than today when it will be in the 100's there. I think Shirley would both agree with you about those favorite seasons. The first hot day in spring-anything above 70-I start looking forward to the end of September.

LLOYD  don' t know what it is feels like outside but i t looks gray and no t a nice day. No rain in the forecast but who really can tell what Mother Nature decides to do.

JANE  I think we had August tempera tures in July but  the rain and all the thunderstorms were like nothing I ever saw before. We had more than 12 inches of rain in July. Imagine how all that rain could help with those fires out west. I cannot drink Gatorade, does a number on my tummy and feels like I will uchuck, even a sip of it does that. My son Mike drinks a lot of it when he is working outside in the hot sun.

Have a good day, stay safe and cool.

Shirley

We have 67° in Wichita at 7:00 am.... radio weatherman says the "air quality is poor. We have a haze from the fires in the NW part of the US". I opened both garage doors as well as the door to the back yard to get that HOT air out, like an oven in here. Also got 2 doors in the house wide open because I don't keep my thermostat down to that & there's no bad humidity this morning. I'd think it was fall BUT since calendar says (my grade school teacher kept insisting that word is NOT SEZ...)the first week of August, we know better! I'm with you, Jane, this is not an August like I remember! No wind at all, got the front yard sprinklers doing their thing.

Amy, I think this country is in a terrible state that we can't produce anything without import parts from China (that's the reason I get when things are not in stock). Scares me to think of the control we have given up since WWII when at that time our teachers kept telling us "what a mistake it was that WE had been selling our raw materials overseas and they were using it to make war." 

I also think of the time we spent in England with a new baby & no washer or dryer. I washed diapers in the bath tub & those little outfits in the bathroom sink & carried the wet clothes down all those stairs to hang out only to bring back in wet at the end of the day & dry in front of the wall electric heater overnight. I dreamed of a little portable washer but my husband didn't think we needed it. Most of our clothes & bedding went to a local laundry that picked up & delivered. How times have changed in 65 years!

Jane, I also keep Gatorade in the frig at all times. Not as good about drinking since the leg cramps don't hit as often. Wonder why they don't?  My body goes on "craves" now & then and I just go with it. Was on an orange juice kick a few months ago & couldn't get my fill. Usually I get sores in my mouth if I eat an orange... but I do listen to my body. Tiger cat does the same, she won't eat breakfast this morning or yesterday morn.... (she usually loves canned salmon), but she will make up for it later in the day. Tom & Callie will eat any time & any thing....

Better eat my breakfast, have some weed whipping I need to do while fairly cool. The lawn guys only trim the basics & race those big mowers around (the grass lays down when they come) & I'm not kidding, soon as they put those big mowers back on the trailer, that grass stands back up.

That's my day and I've got to move. Boy, Gloria, I could live with a HIGH of these 60s & be happy! I feel for your daughter in that heat. My youngest son would live there & love it. Keep wondering if I brought home the wrong baby!!!  He's pushing 60 so I wouldn't trade him now.

Happy Day to all. Shirley

Good morning from a bright and sunny Interior! We reached 89° last evening and expecting the same today with zero % of expected thunderstorms. Our low yesterday was 57 and today's is 64°. I am so glad we don't have the humidity here!

This is not normal for us as August is our rainy and cool-down season. The Munson fire is still burning in the uninhabited forest and away from people or dwellings, and the other summer fires are out. 

Our state fair is going this week, but I'm not. Too many people, and I know the Delta variant will be going as well. I do need to get out and do some hunter-gathering.

Amy, we have two different groups of Scottish pipers, I'm not sure if you would call them a band, organization, or club, but they're at many events during the year. Both are local favorites and have been around forever, it seems. I know; I look forward to hearing them and seeing them parade in full costume!

Another busy day for you and Kyle; any planned stops for cheese and or chocolates?

Our last three summers were cool, wet, and rainy, so I'm enjoying this one and hate to see it come to an end.

Jane, any chance Frankie might like to stop by here once or twice a week? I'd provide meals, but she'd have to provide her own transport. 😀

Gloria, poor Yvette! She is a treasure for you and a good friend!  I'm not that fond of our manager, but that's our temperaments and not her managements skills or lack of. She's very corporate and by the book.

I hope you're not in for a storm with that odd sky?

We don't actually have five full hours of daylight midwinter as the two bracketing hours are full dusk. Winter Solstice brings more and more minutes of daylight, which is why the summer and winter solstices are big in the Arctic. It also helps us with those huge veggies!

I'm with you on Gatorade. That and or Alka-Seltzer is enough to make me gag.

Last March 2020, they took the coinbox off the five sets of laundry machines and made them free, so the maintenance men wouldn't have to handle the coins during the pandemic. They added a small charge across the board to our rents. Yesterday, we received a notice that tenants apparently have friends and family come in illegally to do their laundry or have the tenant do theirs. It's apparently bad enough that a tenant, if found out, is up for eviction.

Shirley, I always keep any screen doors closed due to mosquitos. They drive me nuts!

Since WWII, any product is not necessary from China or any one country. One may contribute the raw materials, another the technical expertise, and perhaps a final touch comes from another country's manufacturer. By treaty from the fifties, the last country to provide the final portion of the manufacturing process has the right to use the "Made In" label.

The majority of our clothing materials and electronic components come from India, the Philippines, or Asia, yet they are stamped Made in America! Often the only made in America portion is the finishing! And America is right in the middle of selling our products throughout the world.

Here's hoping your day goes as you like it!






Shirley

You are right, Patricia, on "made in America" even tho most of the parts come from China. In particular are the little "thingies" that go into controls & techie stuff. That includes cars/washers/all electronics.... my kids complain all the time about what has to be waited on from China to fix just about everything. (Planes/cars/phones/computers, etc). I'm surprised they don't have a camera mounted in the laundry room, to check on who uses how much.

Americans don't want to do or cannot do assembly line work so they farm it out overseas. The largest group of emigrants preferred, especially from India, are those in electronics and or computer fields and innovations.

It's also in the agriculture workforce, we depend on migrants because Americans don't want to do the work.

And of course, you pay less from overseas than from stateside which is one of the largest reasons.

I've been crawling around on my hands and knees carrying a plastic bag, a roll of paper towels and a bottle vinegar spray cleaner most of the day.  I have a doggie with an upset tummy!  We went for a very productive walk about 7:30 and when we came home, she went down the hall and into the bathroom and threw up her breakfast!  She's bee throwing up ever since.  The only thing she was willing to put in her stomach all day was water and that came right back up!  I managed to barricade her in an area of bare floors (no rugs) and that made it a bit easier.  Right now, she's asleep on the kitchen floor and I just finished making rice and chicken to see if I can tempt her and if she can keep it down for supper. 

I don't remember who said to try giving her pepto bismal.  I did try.  She wouldn't even stand still.  I even tried it with a dropper and she sneezed and spit.  I don't think that's going to work!

My knees hurt!

Jane, hope Mickies tummy settles down. Did she pick up anything on your walk? If you think it is difficult giving a dog Pepto try giving it to a horse...many a time I came out of the barn PINK!

Good late afternoon from a trepid explorer back from the malls. It was burning outside waiting for my cab, and I literally felt I was roasting and had to hide out in between the doorways. After spending four hours in one of the larger multi-store malls, I emerged with everything on my list. I think I'll go back on the weekend to grocery shop.

When I came outside, I realize Mother Nature had lied to me. I thought I had been transported back to a southern state, it was so soupy, and there were large, heavy purple clouds. There was lightning and thunder from the east with a needle-like rain. Of course, once I was home, it was dry again, the soup stayed on the eastside, and the northwestern skies had nary a cloud. Now I'm wondering just what else was going down east.

Jane S...chicken and rice usually does the trick, i hope she got it down, and kept it down...

Good Morning everyone. patricia19 Looks Like you have a good glass of red wine.  Vanilla-Jackie are you up late or early. Today at 12:53:12 AM, either way have a good day, Nancy was very restless so we neither one slept good. I was watching a move until about midnight before going to bed. so short night, so I most likely be taking a nap soon this Morning. Hope you all have a good day. I plan on working on rebuilding my raised beds today.

Amy

Good morning..

Heading back into fry time again with a possibility of rain later on this afternoon..

Yesterday was a fun day on the road. Managed to get a part for his sander and I managed to glean a "tray" for my pressure cooker. If I want to do two levels in the pressure canner I would sit the jars on top of the bottom jars. Now I can use this, set it on the jars and put jars on top. Turns out a  11"pizza tray with holes works perfect!

Kyle is building another part of the village ,so off to the lumber yard we go, then home to wash floors. Need to pick beans again so maybe that first to beat the rain.

Patricia, we have to go to get our eyes checked next week and I would imagine cheese and chocolate stops would be in order. We just have to travel across country to get there. All beautiful farm country and I love seeing all the animals along the way. Have to be careful as we have Mennonites driving their buggies along the roads. Frankie will be there after a stop here :)

Gloria, I am picking up a portable washer on Sat. it will see me through till my new one gets here. I would spend more than this portable is costing me on the laundry and have nothing other than clean laundry to show for it. This way I will have a back up.if need be. My friend used to say "Happiness is having two of everything" Many times I have found this to be true.


Better get going.

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

Shirley

Amy, tell me about your portable washer, what brand & where did you find it?  I've been thinking how handy it would be to have one for small loads, especially colored things that not many alike. But, probably not work, I really don't have an inch to spare in this house until I get rid of a lot of stuff.

I used a type of round up on the weeds & ivy near the front of the house last night so must dress & put back the big lava rocks & the clamshell bird bath that sits on that space up against the house. I had been avoiding the job & it only got worse (naturally). When we bought the house back in 1988 it had layers of white rock/Kansas creek gravel/ red rock & then my husband put another layer of black plastic down over & a layer of smaller lava rock with big ones here & there... oh, I think he first put down those cedar chips (& layer of black plastic). Nobody ever removed anything so would take a ditch digger to pull all that black plastic out now. I'm just trying to get it looking neater since the ivy & weeds are covering everything. This is NOT one of my fav jobs but can't find anyone that actually knows how to work except my own kids & they are way too busy with work & their own houses/yards.

Lloyd, my Fitbit tells me I had 4 hours & 11 min sleep last night so I'll also be getting a nap today. My motorhome is sitting in the driveway, gas tank full & new tires all around just begging to hit the road. Too hot for me, have to wait until late Sept or early Oct, I guess. Only place I camp at the lake is COE /Long Shoal (between Warsaw & Clinton). I've stayed at the state park on the west side of Jefferson City when visiting my parents home towns of Bonnots Mill and Linn. The sites are nice in both places, far enough apart & trees for shade. I do like electric hook ups.

Jackie, one year I grew a row of potatoes, actually my husband took care of the garden, but as the potatoes grew he would heap the dirt around them & when he was at work I'd go out & dig my fingers in to find the bigger ones to pluck out for our supper. They were so good fresh out of the ground. He complained about not getting a big crop when he dug them up so I admitted what I had been doing!  ;D

And now I really do have to get busy & move those monster rocks! Last of the cooler days for us.

Vanilla-Jackie

Shirley...i would have kept him in suspense a little longer... ;D

Good morning everyone, another morning with no sunshine but this evening rain will be back and during the night severe thunderstorms are in the forecast, AGAIN. I was hoping we left those storms in July, we had one most every day last month. 67 now but will get warmer as the day goes on even without sun shining. 

SHIRLEY  I could live with 60 or 70 ll summer but still want the cold winter weather, too. My daughter said they are getting used to the heat and the times to stay in the house. My SIL likes the heat and he would suffer in our winters here.

PATRICIA  the manager here thinks she owns this place, she is good at her paper work and saving the company money but she has no people skills with we senior folks. She makes her own rules and will decide who she evicts or not. I she does not  like a person she makes their lives hell and they st art looking for a differen place to move  to. I stay away from her when I can and will just say hello  to her when I see her. A few popular stores in this are closed up when they could not find clo thes made in the USA anymore. There is a difference in the clothing now, nothing seems to fit like it used to. They must think we have very long arms. I always had a problem with sleeves jus t about reaching my wrists and not all the sleeves are way too long. One thing I notice about some new clo thes I sent for is they seem to be cutting back on the material. I buy the same size as always from good stores but now they are getting tight and I hate tight clothes. No  I have not gained any weight, still holding at 80 pounds. I need clothes I can get my arms into easy because of my shoulders not t hings  that have to be cut for me to get out of them.

LLOYD  my daughter has raised beds for her garden.  The soild  there is very sandy so  they  needed soil for  the beds. Their closes t neighbor and firs t friend when theymoved  to Arizona has animals and a huge compos t pile, more than he can use so he told them t heycould have as much as  they needed. My SIL hooked up his fla t trailer and up  the moun tain they went for several loads from his compost and mixed with some of the sand they now have rich soil for her vegetables.

JACKIE  when we had ou r house we had a big garde bu t t he only thing that never frew right was corn. We had several rows of peas but never cooked any of them. As the pods started filling up we would pick them and ea t the peas raw. Even my 3 would do  that.

AMY  I would love to have 2 of everything but would have no room to keep it in. Yvette j=keeps getting me items on sale and I told her to stop or I'll have to get rid of funiture to store it all. My son Mike tells me I should stock up on canned food and Spam-after getting sick of Spam in WW2 I cannot even stand the smell of it. At times it was the only kind of meat available.

SHIRLEY  moving rocks? You have more ambition t han I do. Of course if I bent down to lift a rock I would be down on the ground pretty fast and would need somone to get me up. I don't have enough strength in my arms or legs  to get myself up. Makes me winder why I am still here when I cannot do much of anything anymore.

Have a good day everyone stay safe and cool enough for you.

Good Morning All Y'all!  I wasn't in last night because I was so tired and so worried about Mickie that I just wasn't on the computer.  All day yesterday the only thing she put in her tummy was water and it came right back up. At her vet appt. this morning, they did a bunch of tests and determined that she has a kidney infection.  It isn't curable but it's treatable so she's spending a couple of days in the hospital till they get her settled on her meds and she feels better.  House sure is quiet!

RAMMEL, thanks for the info on the bad dog food.  I've been feeding my dogs an all natural blend since 3 dogs ago.  They love it and it's easy to make up every couple of days!

I guess I'll have to take a walk all by myself today!  No Mickie and no Cooper!

Jane, glad that the vet can help Mickie. Poor Babe starts to shake when we go to the vet but now thanks to you, I will give her some Rescue Remedy and see if that settles her down.

Well, I didn't have to walk by myself.  Cooper stopped by.  Frankie's dad come from where he lives to make a visit at the Farmer's market on Wed. and if it's her day off, they have lunch together.  So he's spending a couple hours with his "GG"

The vet said she call when she has any news and no call yet so I'm still on pins and needles waiting!

AMY, hope the RR works for Babe.  No doggie should be afraid of the vet!

Shirley, I bought this from a fella that no longer needs it. The machine is a Kenmore and will see us through till the new fangled one comes. I am not so sure on the new one.....too many bells and whistles for me. Will work with your phone and tell you when things are done! All I asked for was one that I could control the water..not one that only gives you inches of water...and one that didn't lock........well one out of two ain't bad.....it does have a lock on it but he said there is a button to unlock it. Now why in thunder a washing machine has to have a lock on......they are dirty clothes , who  is going to steal them???  As for kids climbing in teach your kids manners, respect and DO NOT TOUCH. Not sure what this world is coming to anymore, hokey teddy bear!!

Are the kids these days dumber or just more adventurous than ours were and than we were when we were kids.  My mother had a topless, wringer washer when I was a kid and there was no way I wanted to get in there.  I didn't even like the wringer but I did learn to use it!

They called me to take Mickie home overnight.  Once she started to feel better she let them know in no uncertain terms, that she did not like where she was.  So they wrapped the catheter and she's home to sleep but she has to go back tomorrow.  I'm amazed at how much better she looks already!

Gonna go sit with Mickie.  I probably won't be back tonight and maybe not in the morning tomorrow.  Have a good night's sleep and get a good start to your day!

Jane, even dogs know there is no place like home. I am glad Mickie is feeling better and voiced her opinion on where she wants to be. Now the two of you can settle down for the night and sleep.

If I could have found an old wringer, it would be here. I enjoyed doing laundry with that machine.

well My mother had a wringer washing machine. one day she was doing the wash, reached over the tub and reached over the wringer to catch cloth on the other side and it caught hold of her left breast and she could not get hold of the release Bar, so she hollered at me to come and hit the reverse. so ladies be careful. Have a good rest of the day.

Good morning..

Sun is still sleeping..either that or the clouds are not letting it peek through.

Heading to the garage for an oil change, then to see if I can get my licence sticker and renewal.

Managed to get a lot done yesterday, more than I thought. Even met the neighbour at the fence and gave her some baked beans for their supper.

Patricia, where are you???

Sandy, hasn't been around for a while either.

Gloria, I think we all a should be stocking up as we are going through that time again where products were hard to find.

Better get ready to meet the day..

Enjoy your day and stay safe..
