I don't want to insult anyone but posting in S&F is not on the top of my to-do list and if I run out of steam and/or time I don't post for that day.  I'm sorry but that is just the way it is.  And, of course, some days I'm just not feeling well enough to be on the computer at all so there might be long silences from me from time to time.  I apologize......but maybe, I  am wrong in thinking that anyone has missed me.  :-[

Anyway, Goodmorning, Everyone.  Thinking of Jenny and hope she is recovering well.

It is hot here but that is not new.  It will eventually cool down and in no time I will be complaining about the cold, I'm sure.

Take care, All.

Good morning from another, yes another, rainy day in the Interior. We've dropped from 88 degrees to 47 degrees in one month, which is normal for August. September is predicted to be, on average sunnier, and the first snow is predicted around the seventh of October, much closer than the usual Halloween.

I'm okay, just grumpy, and not much going on here. We're back to last winter's Covid levels due to Delta and heading into our eighteenth month of total lockdown.

JaneS

PHYLLIS, I don't know what other people think but when someone doesn't post for several days, I always wonder if they're OK.  At this point in our lives, nothing is certain so I just wonder@

I have 14 quarts of tomatos for soup or casseroles ready to go.  I was up and at it at 6:30 or so this morning and now I'm tired.  I washed a load of towels while the the canner was going and I took a shower when everything was done and set to cool or cleaned up and put away.  Now I'm tired up the gazoo (I know, I know, someone said that doesn't make sense but I've been saying it most of my life and I can't stop!

I think I'll walk up to the corner and see if there's any mail in my mail box and then come back and give in to the bone wearies and the slam shut eyes and just let nature take it's course.  Later, I might get the rest of the maters ready to cook down for sauce tomorrow morning.  I have a dr. appt. that I have to leave here by 12:15 but there's the whole morning to simmer the sauce. 

I hope everyfriend's day is going well!  We never got the predicted rain but they're still saying we should have a shower any time now and it's been kind of hazy all day.  I guess we'll see what happens.

HELLO......I am home and doing quite well.  Surgery was Friday and went as scheduled.  I got no sleep that night as the long lasting shoulder block went away at 10 PM.  They had me on a light load Tramadol and it just did not do any good.  I moved up to oxycodone around 3 AM and then started to get some relief but still could not be comfortable for me to sleep😩😪
 The next day I was groggy as could be from the strong meds and could not do the stair steps required to go home.  They kept me another night and after a good night of sleep, I was able to do the stairs!  They did request I have in home care for two weeks and I am thankful for that.  No way am I capable of going out to a clinic tomorrow for PT. 
I thank you ALL for my continued support.  I appreciate you all so much!  My hubby continues to take creat care of me😘

Take care and I will look back in again when I can.

Welcome home, Jenny.  Glad you'll have home care for a couple of weeks - as well as a caring hubby (although I'm not a bit surprised at that!!).  :smitten:

Jenny  -

So glad that you are through with the surgery
and on your way to recovery.   
These things are never
fun but necessay so we go
through them them the best way
that we can .. 

Hi to all,  even those just peeking in.

Have a good week,  Everyone!

YAY!!!  JENNY'S HOME!  You take care, now!

Nighty night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite!

That's what my Gramma used to say to us when we were on our way to bed!  Back then, I didn't know what the heck a bed bug was and I still haven't seen one!

I made a quick trip to central MO yesterday, to visit my sister. Reality has set in that her husband is no longer going to be around to take card of her every whim. He really was so good to her all these years, everyone thought he was the kindest person EVER lived, so that is a shock to lose.

Her youngest daughter arranged for a meal at HER daughter's house so I'd get to see her daughter's newest grandbaby & the 3 year old. This is all getting complicated to explain, the food was delicious but I was a little uneasy because my great niece also has a day care & it is my fear that kids can pass the Delta germs without having been sick themselves. This being hay fever season it is difficult to know if anyone is suffering from that or "the virus". BUT, there was no way I'd hurt their feelings by not going, all involved with day care are tested weekly for the antibodies & the virus, so probably as safe as possible. 

By the way, Lloyd, my sister lives in your "neighborhood" (Warrensburg) & her youngest daughter lives on a farm near, her oldest son has a farm less than 30 miles from there, he is retired now, different direction... no clue of exact locations. My sister is 90 so doesn't drive a lot anymore, but enough help from kids & grands, she is doing okay.

Time to get off the computer & ready for bed. Got the RV cleaned out, frig & freezer as well, so that was a lot of moving after getting home. I managed to get home before sun was too bright in my eyes, think roughly 250 miles from my house to hers, so 500 round trip. I'm not as tired as I thought I'd be because the wind wasn't as bad as normal. Those "high profile" RVs do make a difference when super windy!

Oh, Jenny, glad you have the worst past. So miserable when nothing helps the pain. IT IS OVER, I know, still that re-hab, but you are one tough cookie & will get the job done!  :thumbup:

I'm talked out so need to see if Tom or Tiger want to come in. Callie showed up about half an hour or hour after we got back..... and got served a couple meals before I shut down. She will not come around the back so Tom & Tiger may have gone around front to visit with her. They ate & have been outside ever since, not laying around the pool like usual. All's well.
 

Amy

Good morning..

Busy day ahead , meeting friends to exchange items after I take Kyle for his blood work. She is bringing me a huge flat cabbage that will either go into Janies coleslaw  or cabbage rolls. Yesterday was lucky enough to find 8 pkg of lean hamburg marked down.  That will get cooked up mixed with vegetables and canned for the dogs. We managed to find a little table with 2 chairs for the sunroom also.

Phyllis always nice to "see" you in here even if it is just to say hi.

Jane, that is a lot of work! What about leaving your sauce in a crockpot to cook down?

Jenny...so good to "see" you in here. You do have a long road ahead of you to heal  but thankfully you have Bob,your family and home care. Don't rush it and take it easy .

Shirley,that is long enough one way.I remember when we were travelling ,we would stop for the night yet my body seemed to be still in motion. Cut back the miles per day and that seemed to be alright.

Gloria, that is a lot of money to put out. Would be nice if they would break down the amount for a single person and maybe for just 6 months to have on hand.

Temp is 57° at the moment....nice but it won't stay there for long..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm up and attem this morning.  I feel rested from yesterday.  After I was off line, I dealt with three more loads of laundry (the last one is waiting in the dryer for attention).  I was so tired that I went right to sleep when I hit the haystack.

They added "Mannix" to the old show lineup I like to watch at night.  He was one of my favorites and now I know why.  He sure was cute!

We were supposed to get rain overnight but I don't see any signs of it...no wet roads and no puddles.  Ther're still saying "later today".  I don't think they know any better than I do when it's going to rain.  But I did get my leaky window fixed.  Turns out it wasn't the window.  It was the roof right above the window.  And the guy who fixed it said "It's not going to leak now!"  I asked him if he was sure of that and he said, "If it does, call me and there won't be any charge to fix it up."  I guess he was pretty sure of his work.

AMY, I thought of putting the mater juice in the crock pot but I think there might be too much to start with.  I haven't given up the idea but I reserving final decisions until I see.

I better get started or I won't get finished in time to get a shower before Cathy picks me up for my Dr. appt.  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good Morning everyone. It is clearing off looks to be a good day here and is 71º right Now at 6:55 AM Have a good day. I have the raised beds almost repaired for the Last tub to be filled with soil, and Walmart is out.

Lloyd

Lloyd Hammond

JaneS you repeated yester day. you were posting at same time I was, o well Have a great day also.

Lloyd

Gloria

Good morning everyone, 71 now and sunny. Tonight-tomorrow we are in for some left over rain from Ida.

LLOYD  beats me how  to copy/paste a picture on here.

PHYLLIS  I know what you mean about not feeling up to posting or getting at the computer. I have days I feel like that, too, but try to get here anyway even for a few words. You know how we worry in here about a missing "family" member. We do miss you when we do not see you here.

PATRICIA  glad we were never in total lock down here. Don't know what I would do if CNAs could not get into the building or what I would do without Yvette or my son's Saturday visit every week and other son's unexpected at least once during the week. The witch has just put the furnit ure back in the lobby and opened the community room for card games and bingo on different evenings.

JANE  hope you had a good nap before bed time last night. I had 3 little ones when I first started canning so  trie in aft ernoons when they were napping or af ter they were in bed for the night. I get tired now thinking of those days when I never seemed to get tired and did so much.

JENNY  so glad that is over and now the healing and PT. Different hospitals and ways of doing things. When I had mine done  they had this  thing full of ice cubes  that was kept on my shoulder so kept it  so cold I never felt pain and I was in the hospital longer than you,  too. I did have PT at home and the ones I had were great and made it fun so was not like working but more like playing. I know I was surprised about how fast they had me using my shoulder.

SANDY  always good to see another New Englander post here.

SHIRLEY  glad you got to see your sister and some family members.

AMY  my daughter had a cou ple of containers of those meals, she bought the first one even before they moved. If that dry riverbed floods too long before they get into town for groceries  they will not  go hungry. I don't know how long both containers would last them but they are prepared. Yvette keeps t elling me I should s tock up on canned foods but really do not like can veggies except tomatoes and cream corn ye t when I was growing up we had can veggies in  the winter months when the fresh ones were limited to root veggies.

JANE  Mannix (yes he is a handsome hunk) has been on the Me channel in the wee hours of the morning/night and I have enjoyed  that and a few other of those old shows on the nights I cannot sleep.Hope good news with your doctor appointment.

I APOLOGIZE.  I guess I was being cranky yesterday.  I'll do better.  As Gloria and Jane said, just a "hi" some days will be enough and I appreciate that good friends still think about me.

Another hot day but beautiful.  Waiting on the remnants of Hurricane Ida to bring us rain and we do need some rain.  A few weeks ago I didn't think I would say that but it has been hot and dry lately for several days in a row so rain would be appreciated.  No flooding or wind, however, please.  Poor New Orleans and all of those down there in the Gulf area.

Take care, All.

When you can see exactly what the problem is, it makes it easier to fix it and know you fixed it.  When you can't ID the problem and just guess, the risk of failure is greater.

Thank you for all your kind and encouraging words.  I feel I am moving in the right direction this time. 

My in home PT will come early tomorrow afternoon.  I am anxious too see her as she is a nice friend now.  I SO want to move my arm......these braces are not fun, but oh so necessary. 

I wish you all a good day.

Good morning from a sunny, but chill at 48° morning. We're expecting 70° for a high today, which is more in line with September. October should stay sunny but chill down further. So far, the weather is as usual for this time of year.

Gloria, we still have CNAs who are regularly tested but no inside family visits. Our community rooms are locked, have been since March 2020, and staff has been reduced, and patient coordinators only work by phone or email. The only stores remaining open are the big mall groceries. Many hospitals are full and unable to transfer patients outside as those states' hospitals are also full. This isn't going to end until we have herd immunity and people stop being political.

Jenny, I'm so glad to hear you're back home and have family to help and PT available! It's so good to hear from you.

Phyllis, even a simple occasional hello, lets us know you and David are doing well.

Jane, I wish at times I was still canning. However, I still have 12 jars of sauce and 14 jars of vegetables from last winter. I don't eat as much or go through it as fast. And some I no longer eat but trade with friends for what I do eat! Speaking of friends, it looks as if we will be reinstituting our morning texts.

Amy, I wish I could drive! Due to social distance, the large city buses are limited to eight passengers, and taxis have abominable wait times and come with plexiglass barriers between passenger and driver. At least the two nearest bridges between the grocery stores and me will be back in operation in November. They've been closed for a year while being rebuilt and have added a few extra dollars to my taxi fares!

Amy

Just waiting on the cabbage rolls to call it a day.  My friend gave me a flat cabbage and it was a toss up between Janes coleslaw or cabbage rolls....which I haven't had in the long time. Cooked hamburg,carrots and peas and canned that for the dogs first .

I don't need anyone to give me work, I make more than enough work for me..got to learn to stop that!!
