Good morning..

Foggy this morning with a temp of 45°.

Need to wait around home for a Dr's call.  I have lots to do in the mean time. Had a peach crisp boil over last evening and have the "dust/ash" to clean up .

Jane, hope today is a good day for you and that everything went well yesterday.

Patricia, leaves are turning here and geese are taking their young on short flights getting ready for the long one.

Better get at that oven before the feeling goes away.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Have a good day.

I slept away most of yesterday and today I'm taking my time and trying to figure out what I can eat.  Isn't it wierd that you can love soup until that's the only thing you can eat and then you don't want it.  I'm thinking ice cream would go down easy? 

Glad to hear goood news from all...celebrations, bandage removals, getting out and getting back in, good dinners...sorry about the bad stuff, JENNY! 

All went well with my surgury but not being able to eat is a bummer!

Have a good day!

Patricia, good morning to you.. I did find another job equally as nasty as cleaning the oven..I finally did the big freezer! I bought bins and now everything , meat, veggies,fruit are in in a bin of heir own. I did pick out some meats which are now roasting to can later for the dogs...one prime rib that found its way to the bottom of the freezer will soon be chopped up along with the rest of the meat,hamburg, wee roast for the dogs.

Shirley

Yum, Amy, can I be your dog for the day?  Prime rib my fav!!! 

More work on the pool. Back to the store for one more thing but the guy waiting on me rubbed me the wrong way (and he knew it).... didn't get what I went after because he tried to pressure me into more "shock" & I already put 6 bags of that in this week. After taking care of this pool since 1988 I do know a little about what it needs & certainly not more SHOCK! I will do it my way & hope it's mellowed out when time to close for the winter!  This is the crap I knew went on when you let them diagnose problems, "chemicals to UP & chemicals to DOWM" and never a happy medium. Paint me grouchy~~ 

Lawn guys to be here in an hour so can't take a nap. Not quite 3 hours sleep last night, woke up with thinking about so many extra jobs lately. Gave up & got up for breakfast. Knew it would not work trying to go back to bed since lawn guys were "going to try" to work me in today. My grass isn't growing enough in a week & the guys have trouble with 10 day weeks. Even they had to agree that "it's that time of year" when it stops growing.  ::)

Glass of iced tea sounds good, need a caffeine kick. Now I know you REAL tea drinkers are cringing at the thought of iced tea (same as I do over iced coffee), but I've gotten back to keeping a pitcher full in the 'frig & nipping all day, cut out the Coke & Pepsi.



CallieOK

Shirley,  I'll join you for a glass of Iced Tea!  I'm not "suthren" enough to want Sweet Tea, though.  ;)

My mother liked iced coffee in the summertime but I never developed a taste for it and didn't learn to drink hot coffee until I began teaching and it was available in the teacher's lounge. 
Now, I prefer tea but will drink coffee (with sweetener (or sugar) and milk (or cream)) if it's served to me at a party or a meal.

Mother also liked her coffee scalding hot.  She had a saying on her bulletin board that read "Whenever you get a mouthful of too hot coffee....whatever you do next is wrong"! 
We started referring to a difficult situation as a "a mouthful of too hot coffee".

Hope Everyfriend is having an Enjoyable Day.  Glad you feel better, Janie and hope you found something to eat!

Shirley

Haha, Callie, my iced tea has to have enough sugar for the spoon to stand up straight!  Hot tea is the English way, milk & spoon full of sugar (song in there).

Big ole puffy clouds look like weather moving in but radar showing zilch. Mowers just finished but too windy to turn on sprinklers right now, moisture would land clear down the street.

Ordered another type pool brush, hope this needy pool faze ends soon. Just trying to keep it up until time to close for the winter. Know that spring I will need some new parts for the pump & maybe even a new pump & motor. UGH...

Amy

Shirley, my iced tea has sugar and lemon in it. Hot tea has milk,my Dad liked his with canned milk in in. I also like rooibus tea, green tea plain or with ginger, strawberry tea, white tea  pumpkin spice tea and others..tea granny here.

I need my coffee first thing in the morning preferably with 1/2&1/2 but whole milk with work.  Then after the doggies all had an outie and we had breakfast and a walk it was time for the second cup of coffee and visit on line with friends. 

My fav in the tea line is a big jar of sun tea with sugar and lemon in it...nice and cold out of the fridge.

Now that I've said that, I'm thirsty!  But I'm off to the haystack.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And I wish me a jaw with no sore in it tomorrow.  Most of the swelling is gone but what is still there hurts and my throat is a bit sore.  But it's healing!

Shirley

I'm here to say "Good Night, sweet dreams and God Bless". Too tired to talk. All day I've thought it was Sat tomorrow so I'm a day ahead and ONLY Friday! I think that's a good thing. Like Lloyd says, "Hope to see you tomorrow........" 

Nice we can visit, nobody has to wear a mask and we are all safe!  :nanadance2:  :nanadance2:  :nanadance2:  :sleep:

Amy

Good morning...

Day is starting off nice....temp is 54°.Will be canning the meat that was cut up yesterday when we get back from town. That is about it other than pick more beans.

Bubble , happy to see you back :smitten: !

Jane, hope today is a great day for you. Hope all the selling is gone today and your mouth is better.

Shirley, we have had days like that and rejoiced that we have an "extra" day. I find it very easy to get the days mixed up when we have had a holiday in the week.

Gloria, hope to "see" you today.

Patricia.. :clap: good morning to you and :kitten:

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning everyone. It Is 66º and sunny and clear not a clod in sight here in central Mo. Hope you all are having just as good day. I had 7.5 hours sleep according to the tattle tail.

Lloyd

Good morning everyone, 53 when I fist looked this morning, sorry i was not here yesterday. Another update and this lemon would not work yesterday, just would not start up. Of course I called my grandson and he got here last night. I was really bummed all day. Wish I could stop those darn updates, I always have a problem after one. I never know until I go to close at  night that an update is coming when a message pops up that an update is ready and not to shut down and it does it's thing. At times I wish I never had a computer and yesterday was one of them but so glad I am here today.
The only time i drink tea is if I don't feel good and then it has to be strong. I prefer  coffee. My daughter will not drink coffee and likes her tea very weak. Odd though when she was young the only way I could get her to drink milk was to put coffee syrup in it. In this state coffee milk is THE drink. Going anywhere else in the New England states they most likely never heard of it or serve a cup of coffe with milk in it.
A couple of days ago Mike brought me a bag of  tomatoes from his garden. Yesterday the CNA I had and I blanched them and got the skin off and I made a big pan of spaghetti sauce and today hope to get it  into the freezer. No CNA today, got a call yesterday that they could not find one. Odd because the one I had Wednesday said she was wanting more hours. I sure missed Yvette this week. Wonder what  wioll happen in November when she has the first knee replacement surgery. I dread the thought. At  least I had 2 CNAs I had before and like.


JANE  hope you found something good  to eat, personaly I would opt for ice cream. Lately I have been having more ice cream than real food.

AMY  not my fault for not being here yesterday. I missed my morning coffee with my cyber family.

LLOYD  no sun here this morning, just gray sky and rain in the forecast.

Abouot time to have breakfast and then dress and get busy with that  sauce into containers for the freezer

Have a good day and stay safe.

Gloria, good to see you here and can understand the frustration with the computer.
The neighbour was over one time and I know he likes his tea weak also. Hubby asked him if he wanted him to make a pair of crutches? Neighbour wondered at that and then Kyle said your tea is so weak it can hardly get out of the cup!nMaybe crutches would help it.!

My thoughts were a LOT stronger than "Hmmm"!  I'm joining GLORIA and I don't like those updates.  There should be something simple for us oldies!

HELLO, EVERYFRIEND!  I'm in recovery!  I don't feel like I have to sit down, lie down, go to sleep, keep my mouth shut or stop eating.  Eating isn't easy yet but it's doable! And I'm doing it.  I have lots of soup on my shelves and I'm making use of it.  I actually chewed a piece of chicken from the chicken corn soup and it wasn't little!

They're leaving me alone tonight so I guess I've proved myself.  Cooper and I went for a walk and we did the full circle.  There's a little swelling yet but it's going down and it's not sore enough for painkillers.

GLORIA, you sure are going to miss Yvette when she gets her knee done.  I hope they find some good ones for you in the meantime!  Enjoy your spaghetti sauce!

When I came home from the hospital on Wednesday there was another bag of summer squazh on the porch.  We stuck it in the fridge and today I cleaned it.  If it keeps coming, I'll have squash soup for the entire neighborhood!  And my SIL texted to ask me how my venison was holding out.  When I told him, he said looks like I need to make a trip just for you!  So I guess I need to make freezer space.  That means the squash has to come out, get made into soup and canned!

My mail included a book of recipes today!  And I turned immediately to the ones for Girl Scout cookouts.  Lots of good memories in there!!

Now I'm off to see what else I can get into today!  I hope you are all having a great day!  It's beautiful in Central PA!

If I may ask, please pray for my dear Grandniece, Bridget!  She's been in the hospital since Monday and may need to undergo surgery.  She's 24 years old and a wonderful person.  I'm sure God is watching over her.

Mutter-mutter-mutter.... tell me NOT TRUE, Patricia, REALLY??? Windows 11?  I don't think my brain can handle it, or my stomach, or any other part of me!

Shirley

I think our big family needs lots of prayers this week, including Bridget... so time out to say "thanks" for the many good things in our lives and ask God to have mercy on our loved ones.

I do more than my share of whining and need to appreciate my many blessings, having all of you in my life is for sure a good thing. Hugs to all.  Shirley

Amy

Jane to be honest I think my response would be the same as yours....but oh boy was the polite response ;D  Guess you will be  cooking up a storm now?
Prayers for Bridget that all goes well, keep us posted please.

Shirley, I don't  know  about  you  but I cringe when  I see an update is needed. Can't help but think what will go wrong.

Just came in from bringing the dog comforters off the line, throwing frizzbee for the pup and picking 36 blossoms off the strawberry plants! Maybe when we get frost they will stop sending out blossoms? These are everbearing and they are living up to their name, I just hope they winter over !

I think the idea is to give you enough time to learn the current version and start to enjoy using it ------------------------- Then ---------------------Slip in a new version.  Include stuff we don't need or want, but cool M$ stuff. Make it so your old files won't work with the new version without a conversion program, or some other quirky thing for all to learn.    HUMBUG

hahahaha, glad to see you are as thrilled with Win11 as I am, Rick!  In my case I really doubt if the Windows98 original Toshiba laptop that went to 7 & on to 10, OR the Windows Vista that NEVER got updated because it still lets me play with Paint Shop Pro original version that Glenn Curtis advised me to get, will advance to 11. Computer so fragile I can't do much with it in hopes it will let me continue doing birthday cards for my family. The one that went thru so many changes is attached to the printer so hope to drag it along as long as possible.

I'm sure you'll love this news, too, Gloria! This last update on the iPhone & iPad about did me in. My daughter walked me thru getting those done, biggies!  :o

This HP laptop was a sale item when we were camping & spending a night in a Walmart parking lot before going up the mountain. Had it at least 4 years, son set it up in the parking lot & been doing a great job ever since... for the big price of $250 & touch screen, 1T.... a real bargain, I thought. Seems we not only buy groceries when spending the night getting adjusted to altitude, most years I end up needing to buy a battery for the motorhome. One year we had our reservations at the campground within the year so battery was replaced under warranty!

I think the pool is about to give in & shape up. Today I got out the big O ring in the pump to clean it off completely & put new "stuff" on it. Then I added water (using the well/sprinkler system set up to go either way), back flushed all the ickies out of the filter tank & tomorrow will get a new brush (thanks, Amazon) to fit the corners better when I brush the bottom. I still say, anyone's nuts to buy a house with a pool but I couldn't find a better buy when we were house hunting, besides, all our furniture fit this house like made for it.

Better take my walk to the river, have a loaf of bread for the fish & I need the walk. If I sit her another minute I'll fall asleep.

Shirley, we had our pool taken out and lawn restored after kids were grown and hubby spent more time cleaning it than he did enjoying it.

Re: Windows 11!!!  >:(    :no:  :shakehead:  :sealedlips:

Shirley

First thing I did when we bought this house was contact the biggest company that could do the work of filling in a pool BUT they knew this house & the original owner & knew none of their big equipment could get up the hill from the river & would have had to remove 2 layers of fences to get to it from the front. Concrete has to be broken & removed to keep from mildewing during rain & all the concrete surrounding the whole back of the house & around the pool would have been like those big pizza ovens, hold the heat during the summer because it is the entire back (south) of the house with very little grass to our boundry. One of those things that "I knew better" BUT... I could move & have the cats put to sleep BUT..... and so it goes. The cats are also a big problem but as long as they aren't in pain I will keep taking care of them as long as I can. I kind of feel like this is the price I pay for all the extras I'm given, and need to quit griping. This year has been over the top and WE ALL know a lot has to do with the attitude of the times as well as COVID. So I thank you all for the suggestions, trust me, I've pondered every angle & this life wins out. It does help to share my frustration, thanks for letting me whine. Cooler weather will help the attitude, too, & then the months of having it covered & don't have to think about it until spring/summer will make me forget how bad this summer has been.

Rick, I actually "pictured" turning it into a sunken tea garden with wooden (level) floor & a covered/screened surrounding. But I never sit out in the summer when the house has AC!!! Maybe the next owners will enjoy as much as the original.

Off to bed a little early, can't believe it is another week end.

JaneS

Nighty Night Everyfriend!  I'm heading for the haystack to check for the zzzzs.  I have tomorrow planned and I hope my body says "yes" when I get up.  Cooper will be here at 7 a.m. and he's spending a week with me while his "Mom" takes a well-earned vacation. 

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