It sounds as if we have some of the same issues, Sandy. It seemed to work somewhat for me as I still slept only about four hours, but...I didn't wake up at the halfway point. So, we shall see further on.

Edit: At 5:27, I finished my total deep clean of my apartment for tomorrow's inspection by the head housekeeper from the state capital's office, which was rescheduled from the pre-pandemic 2020 inspection. I was getting ready for a scented steaming bath only to notice a paper shoved in my doorway

They've canceled tomorrow's inspection and rescheduled it for the end of July! What the heck?!?

Sandy



That would make me very  angry , Patricia..
(Better expressed as PO"D)

They have known this for a while, you bet...
And they also knoow how upsetting this is
for everyone,  who now have to prepare for
TWO inspections in two months time!!

Sorry about that Patricia..

Good morning..

Well we had the freeze now the fry weather....going up past 80° today.

Busy day yesterday, did pick up soil twice for the trugs and sold a trug and pick up more material for more trugs!

Today is catch up day and there is a lot to catch up on!

Patricia, when they knock slip them a paper out your door to say you have re-scheduled to the next month. I know ,won't go over will it?


Better scoot.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Unfortunately, 
"'He who holds the gold makes the rules' is a saying that holds more truth than a surface reading indicates. It is not simply a statement that those who are rich get to make up the rules through the influence their money buys. No part of this saying indicates the amount of gold being held."

So If I were brave enough,  (and   I am not),   :knuppel2:
I would shout through the door,
" Come in if you don't mind being exposed to Covid!! " 

I hate those inspections,  I find them demeaning.

Of course ,if my building was full of
Horders,  I would begin to appreciate the inspection
act.   

What is wrong is waiting for the last minute to
cancel     I wonder who's bright idea that was?

Have a good day,  Everyone!!

Good morning  everyone. I had a good CNA yesterday, we had a good 3 hours. I have had  this one on and off since I first started getting help. I also called the office about the lazy dirty hands one I get 2 days - 4 hours both days. Thursday will be cut to 2 hours. I told her about her not washing her hands and refusing to use the sanitizer (she wanted to do some cooking for me :idiot2: ) She said she will talk to her. I made up my mind that once again if she refuses to wash her hands with soap and water and at least using paper towels to dry her hands and not her butt she is going out the door and I will not sign her work sheet either. I might end up with no help but thiis not washing hands is getting to me. She washed them when washing dishes. Have you ever heard anything that stupid?

Every day is getting a bit warmer here but not humid yet. The first humid day we get I will be asking my sons to get the AC into the window. Of course with only one window in this room it cuts the light coming in but I have a lamp on just  about all day here where it  lights up the keyboard.

PATRICIA  at least you get a notice when there is an inspection. In the booklet we get here it  says we get a 24 hour notice, never happened, they just show up no matter the day or time. Wonder if they ever let  themselves into an apartment and found someone in the shower.

I am running late, lazy will be here at 10:30 and I am still in my nitey so better hurry and get dressed.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning; I woke up at 38 degrees and steady rain. The weather report says rain on and off today to match my mood. This "spring" is not warming.

Amy, thanks for the chuckle your advice gave me this morning.

Gloria, we have a large clip affixed to the left of our doors for notices but they're also slipped under or into the side of our doors. We also get email notices or for those with a television who subscribe to the channel, showing the roving views of the public area camera channels, they see messages that occasionally show on the screen.

There are not only management or maintenance notices, but various resident committee notices or appeals and memos from the social coordinator. Now that we're having what is termed as a soft opening, I'm sure we're have more of those. One was our first Memorial Day picnic outdoors rather than in the still locked first-floor rec room, the only one with a kitchen. If the weather is cool, I hope they consider opening it.

Sandy, we have a hoarder. Unfortunately, he also has sticky fingers. We're told to be more charitable when management automatically makes a trip to his apartment anytime something is missing.

And yes, I'm being grouchy this morning.

Hello, Everyfriend!  I got home about 10 last night, tired and ready to sleep but I made myself unpack first and put everything away.  And guess what I discovered?  I left my computer power cord at my sister's house.  I called her to make sure it was there and it was exactly where I suspected it was.  They'll all be coming up later this month for Bethany's graduation from college and they will bring it then.  In the meantime, the place where I bought the new computer has lent me a power cord.  They are such nice guys I'm thinking of adopting them!

We are having temps in the low 80s today.  I have all the windows open and I took a long walk this morning (my alternate to no being able to get on the computer).  It felt great! 

I've read all your entries and the only one I'm going to comment on is GLORIA's about her lazy, good-for-nothing person who won't wash her hands.  I think, if she were coming to my house, I'd save ur all the dirty dishes (or make some dirty) and have her wash a sink full of dirty dishes first thing in the door!  Then her hands would be clean, like it or not!

My sister and I had a great visit.  We cooked and ate well, gabbed continuously, and laughed a lot.  We took a couple of long walks and sat out on the swing on her back porch and watched the people going by and gabbed some more.  We stayed up late and slept late in the morning.  All in all it was great and we have plans to do it again!

Now I have to go see if I got any mail and figure out what I'm going to make for supper and then try to catch up on the newspapers!  I hope you are all having a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

One good thing about texting....I don't talk too much.  :2funny:

Cloudy and dreary here today.
We are getting some of the nor'easter that caused so much trouble out on the Outer Banks for the past 3 days.  It is moving inland now.

Gloria, I didn't have any trouble with the broken tooth.
He was able to build it back up with resin and it feels just like it always did.  I met the new young dentist that bought the practice and I really like him...better than I liked the old dentist. 

Glad you are home, Jane, and glad you had a nice visit.
Take care, All.

Time to say good night!  I had a bowl of SHIRLEY's Taco Soup for my supper.  It was very good...as usual!  Now I'm off to the haystack.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!  And may He watch over the Ukrainians!

I've been in several (maybe more) times today but didn't feel like talking so didn't. Had much to think about early since my fixer son asked me to do a couple things to determine what was wrong with the well/sprinkler system. Fed Tiger & thought I'd better do my running to the basement to turn off & on the sprinklers & back out front to see how they were doing & open the sand filter like son said.... before I had MY breakfast. Called to tell him how it went so he said he'd stop by on the way to the university (still working on grades for his students, couple hundred last I heard). I had everything ready for him to scrub out that filter & he was exactly right, soon as he put it back together & I ran back down to turn the system on.... it worked perfectly!  He is SO smart.

While out I hand watered flowers that don't get the sprinklers, fed birds, finally came back in to eat. By then it was nearly lunch time (so Tiger thought), cut up her meat & fixed my lunch & went to the back bedroom to make up on lost sleep. Friend called to remind me about the art show today so I put the TV on the PBS station & closed my eyes to wait a few minutes for the show to come on. Woke up a few hours later, switched stations & promply went back to sleep. And by the time I got back to the kitchen it was supper time & the day was shot.

I have to do better tomorrow, gotta clean the trug & plant lettuce seeds. I was hoping to run to MO before planting since it needs water a couple times a day because the wind drys out so bad. Been in KS since 1960 and don't remember wind EVER being this bad so long. A news article recently said "it isn't our imagination, wind has been worse than normal".

About those inspections, if the contract says they must give you 24 hour warning & just show up, I'd said, "sorry, I have an appointment and just leaving, make it tomorrow but let me know so I don't have another engagement."  If necessary I'd lock the door & dare them to come in when I'm not there, and put a mouse trap (stack of something) by the door to be able to tell if someone came in. Must be some kind of "renters rights". Of course this is the whimp that allowed several different lawn people bully me.  :-[ 

I think Jane has a good idea for getting hands washed, a stack of dishes in the sink  might convince the dirty girl it's less work to just wash her hands!

I am sleepy but expect one more "kid call" before I go to bed. 2 of my 3 call every night and the other one comes every Wed after work & only calls for special reasons. I've never had him not show up if I needed him so can't complain.

Have a sad report from Jack, he had to have Mimi put to sleep in Feb, old age and no other choice. I asked him about a photo setting he was showing me, he is so smart about learning how to operate computer, phone or cameras, I planned to send photos to Bubble to post and when I started to mail to her I discovered I forgot to download the photos. Back to the drawing board. Will wait until tomorrow because I want to download from my camera, a photo of the Baltimore Oriole at my feeder this week, plus a better photo of a male cardinal for Gloria!

Had a quick check & sure enough, Jane slipped in. That's what I need to do, make a batch of taco soup, my freezer is out of it. Thanks for the reminder.

Sweet dreams & God Bless.  Love y'all.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm up and attem this morning.  Cooper will be along shortly and I'm having my first cup of coffee while I wait.  I stripped my bed and the sheets are in the washer.  After Cooper is taken care of, I need to get a shower and get ready for an eye dr. appt.  And that will be my morning.  I hope the sheets are dry and back on the bed before it's time to hit the hay.

SHIRLEY, good luck with your day today.  Yesterday sounded like it took the wind right out of your sails!  That was a day and a half for sure!

I better get back on my horse before Cooper gets here!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning

Another scorcher in the making for here today.
I get get carrots, parsnips and beans planted yesterday.
Today I will pick up potatoes for planting tomorrow, will cut them today and let harden off. A trip to the dump to get rid of brush etc is needed also today.

Jane, bet it felt good to sleep in your own bed last night. Nice to go away but so nice to come back home .

Shirley, I have covers on three trugs and it was so hot in one yesterday I had to open it up a bit. I am sorry to hear on Mimi's passing. Jack is sure going to miss her.

Phyllis, I don't text..plain and simple. I will phone and talk or go see the person. Nice that you are comfortable with your new dentist. I was also lucky enough to get a good one. I do miss my other one but he is on a well deserved retirement.

Gloria, I too like Janes idea..

Better get going..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

good morning everyone. well I read the morning post. and was makeing my two cents worth for today. had it almost compleeted and it disseapered and i can not fiend it. I had a good night's sleep last night. have already taken my vitials and sent them to VA. via sadelight with the machine. weather person here says rain on and off today. lookslike it can do it any time. it is very cloudy and over cast. the barn swallos are busy working on there new nest in our intery way. I spend a lot of time watching the birds. will be intresting to watch the swallos fenish ther new nest and raise there new ones. I think I will build a feeder box.and put it up for the birds,will put it quite  wase from the house as they make quite a mess around them. I have done that in the past. my youngest brother pased on to be with god. he had a brain cancer. he would ot let them work on it just sufferd. my  mymiddle brothers wife pased on a while back. she was creamated , her wishes. no cermoney for the famley and friends. the way things are in the world now days would be aliaght with me if god would call my number. I enjoy time with grand childern and more so with great grands. Right now there are a red wigned black bird eating in the yard,a pair of robbiens,the swallos are busy flying in and out workingin there new nest. Nancy puts bread crumbs out on the back porch slab and the birds get most of the but the neighbors dog runs in and steel most of them. we have lot of birds in and out. a bright red bird and a bluwe bird the redwigned bird and the swallos and severial little dark black birds with greay under sides.the clouds is starting to break away. I best close out now and go eat a morning meal. see you all later.

Good morning everyone. 61° to start the day and overcast. Had 2 fans going all night in order to feel cool enough to sleep. I can only open my windows about 6 inches, no strength to open and close them more than that. On local TV yesterday they showed a birthday celebration for a veteran of WW2, he is now 102 and moves on his own 2 legs. no cane or anything else and looks great. They showed all his medals and 3 of them were Purple Hearts, those I recognized. He really did not look that old either.

Oh yes. lazy dirty hands washed her hands and did a bit of work I did not have to ask her to do. Her boss must have talked to her and she did not say anything about getting cut 2 hours
either.

PATRICIA  yesterday turned out to be the warmest day so far and it did not cool much once the sun set. Just heard on local weather will be in low 80's this afternoon. This is when I start feeling miserable. I cannot take it  that hot. Pretty normal for spring here, one day we have heat  on and the next we want the AC on, no in between.

JANE  welcome home. LOL about lazy and dirty hands. Heck I don't want all the germs on her hands on my dishes. I have to wash them over because there is always food stuck on them. I asked her when was the last time she had her eyes checked and she said never, her eyes are fine, she passes the eye test for her driver's license. Glad the computer guys let you use a cord so you can use your PC. So happy that you and your sister had a wonderful time together.

PHYLLIS  my fingers are not good texting but I did see there is a microphone showing so I can talk and send a text that way. Talking with the CNA I have on Wednesday she asked me about the one I had that had me take too many anti biotics I ended in the hospital a year ago. She told me her husband just had a tooth pulled by the dentist and same thing. Infection -first script for antibiotics not working a second script double strength and he started feeling odd she told him not to take anymore and then called their doctor to check him. Will wait till Wednesday for the result.  I still have to find a new dentist to take the rest of the teeth out but I have to take 4 antibiotic caps before going to a dentist because of the replacement parts in my right shoulder. I am scared to take any of them anymore.

SHIRLEY  manager and maintenance can go into an apartment if needed if I am home or not.  I don't like that at all. Never wanted anyone in my home if I am not there. Have nothing to steal. To me it is an invasion of my property and me.  The owners of these buildings can come in anytime they want. I don't go out often so am home most of the time.

AMY  any one who comes in here washed their hands in the bathroom sink, the kitchen sink they can use later after getting rid of the germs they bring in with them. We have had some cases of Covid in the building and I do not want anyone bringing it in on their hands and getting it all over my apartment. That is something I do not need.

LLOYD  wish I could sit at the window and watch birds. I do miss that. I have not seen a red wing black bird in years. Only birds I see now are the ones flying over. Too high to see what they are.

Have a good day and keep safe.

Gloria, when I was in the hospital last October and November I thought about you and the antibiotics.  They gave me at least 2 courses and maybe 3...I don't remember.  I was a little worried but I just wanted to get rid of the pneumonia so I could breathe again and not have it hurt.  Eventually the antibiotics worked and the lungs began to function more normally.  I don't like taking them but I don't like being sick either.

Not windy here and not hot but it is dreary and rainy with stronger storms this afternoon.

Amy, temp. in the 80's doesn't sound too bad for me.  We have summers here up in the high 90's and the same level or more of humidity.  I think it would be hard for you to live here in the South. 

Take care, All.

Good morning, 8:26 now, and it's 36 degrees this Friday the 13th for those superstitious; with the same weather notice we've had for a while, "Special Weather Statement issued May 12 at 1:23 PM AKDT by NWS Fairbanks

...RAIN AND SNOW THIS WEEK AS RIVER BREAKUP CONTINUES...

A weather front will move across the Interior today through Friday, bringing a mix of rain and snow to the area. Expect generally less than one inch of snow at valley level in the Fairbanks Area, 2 to 4 inches over higher terrain, and 6 to 10 inches in the Alaska Range. This front will continue to bring cool temperatures across the area with lows in the 20s to lower 30s, and highs in the 40s to around 50.

Rivers levels across the area remain elevated as breakup continues.

Breakup conditions can change rapidly so residents near rivers should remain vigilant and be prepared to move to higher ground."

The skies have been white for some weeks now, with no blue showing.

Shirley, I was sorry to hear about Jack's Mimi. I know Jack misses her, but she had a wonderful life with him, and he with her. You did have a time yesterday.

I lost most of my plants when I couldn't walk or stand on my feet for more than a moment in February 2021. I also lost 31 pounds and eighteen weeks of recovery due to an injury that I was told would only be two to four weeks.

I lost another 20 when I went on the anti-inflammatory diet to regain some control over my allergies. Since then, I only purchased primary trailing plants, philodendrons, money tree, golden pothos, and ivies. On the eighth shelf, they are under grow lights because Farrah enjoys her greens a little too well, almost rabidly so.

Gloria, it's the same here. The state purchased these seven buildings when the president at the time made it impossible for foreign corporations to do business here. Public ownership has not gone well, many services have been cut, and then the pandemic happened. I don't know how many were sick; management didn't tell us. I know that three people in the building died, one who had lived here seventeen years.

The landlord and/or maintenance have the legal right to enter any leased apartment in the building if required. They are legally obligated to leave a notice stating the time entered and time left, the reason for entering, and the signatures and name(s) of those entering.

Jane, I'm sure you enjoyed time with your sister and she with you and time back at home with Cooper again.

Phyllis, I have a paradoxical effect with medications in that I usually have the opposite effect with them than intended. Because of this, they are cautious with any prescribed and meticulous before prescribing any pain medication.

I have never attempted any recreational drugs, as I would have been the one attempting to fly off of tall buildings.

I have not seen any birds close since they cut down all the trees on the backside of the building. And since they put in the new balconies, which are higher and solid, leaving only slices of the sky viewed unless you go out on the balcony and look down.

I am among those concerned with the water not draining but pooling on the balconies until evaporating because no drainage areas were left. The balcony floors are sheets of plywood over bracings and painted institutional gray with what looks to be marine paint.

The new screens are nice; however, they open on both sides while the balcony doors only open from the left, which seems odd, but what do I know?

My friends and I are still doing our morning texts and calls. I prefer texting because I was never one for long phone calls. I've always been a writer over a verbal communicator. My youngest sister has always been the talker in the family. You could ask about the weather and get a soliloquy back.

Or in my case, written acts one though three. :)

Amy

Phyllis, when we were working (carpentry work) we liked the temp around 70° ,made for nice working weather. Thankfully we are now retired
 and when the temp is in the 80's I am in the house with the C/A.....didn't think I would like having C/A but oh yes I do!! Dogs like it too :)

Hello, Everyfriend!  It's been a very good day today.  I accomplished a lot of things...changed the bed, washed the sheets, blankets, pajamas, etc.; cleaned out the fridge and freezer; walked Cooper twice; caught up on the newspapers; paid some bills; went to the eye dr; cooked some asparagus my neighbor left on the porch.  All in all, I got things done! 

It sounds like all of you were busy, too...gardening, greeting friends; watching the workers; checking the weather; taking a nap; taking a walk; gardening, etc!  Nice going!

Now I'm ready to hit the haystack!  I think I'll sleep well tonight!  I haven't corked off on the couch at all today so I'm ready!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow!  And may God bless us, every one!  And may He watch over the Ukrainians!

Good Morning to you,
Good Morning to you.
We're all in our places
With sunshiny faces
Goof Morning to you!
Good Morning to you!

It's a gorgeous day out there and I'm made a good start.  I have supper in the crock pot.  The kitchen is all cleaned up. The bed is made. I'm dressed.  I've checked my email. I made a batch of dog food.  I hope you I fed Cooper and took him for a very productive walk and I cleaned up and put away a lot of stuff.

Frankie will be spending the night here and that will keep me busy after 4 p.m.  I love having her stay but she sure is a busy beaver!

SHIRLEY, I loved the birdie pics!  I can't get close enough to my birdies to get a good pic!  I keep trying and then I end up deleting it!

I hope you all have a great day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning Everyone. Well this year is no different than any other year at this time. We finally get a few spring days and wham it is summer. No AC's installed and only fans to cool us off. I have not slept the last 2 nights because it was so hot and this morning I feel like an old wet rag. Just limp with no life left in me. When Bill called me yesterday to see if I needed anything from the market this morning he said he was going to call Mike to see if he was busy so they could get ,my AC installed. Do my sons know me?. They will install it and then it will cool off a bit before summer heat and humidity will be here to stay for too long. Then I will have space on the floor in my bedroom closet that will fill up over the summer. I have been told there is a room here that tenants can store their AC during the winter months and even if they had their names on them some have disappeared. Only manager and maintenance have the key so who knows what happened. There is a room on each floor where tenants can store things. I had 2 bins in there when I moved in with my winter clothes in. When I got straightened in here and had room for those bins I made an appointment with maintenance to open the room so I could get the bins so now every thing I own is in my apartment. I don't think I could get rid of anything more. At times I think of what I had to fill 8 rooms but then there was 5 of us living there.     

PATRICIA  Never know who leaves notices at our doors, there are 3 different ones who do that but lately it is either maintenance or the new tenant helper because the papers are folded in half and slid under the door. Used to be rolled and put under the door handle. I have a time bending down to pick anything up so usually leave it there till someone comes here and picks it up for me. Bending over that far now makes me feel like I am falling over. If I did I would have to call for help because I would not have the strength to get up on my own.

HOORAY  my sons are here and I will be cool enough to sleep tonight. Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning; after yesterday's epistle, I'll keep this short.

The weather folks and news reports say next week will finally bring in warmer temperatures that will herald some green. I hope they're right. There is some pastel blue showing between those now wispy clouds.

Gloria, the social coordinator, uses the clips. The tenant hospitality committee members also use the clips. Maintenance slides notices under the door while management puts plastic bags containing paperwork on the door handle. When we were privately owned, space was provided for a fee if you wished to store items off-site. Those storage buildings were sold separately in 2016, and I don't know if any tenants kept their storage or gave it up.

Edit: You know it's time for warmer weather when the news starts offering videos on how to use bear spray.

Amy

I am stuffed...Kyle took me out for an anniversary meal and it was delicious! I asked for no potatoes,just dressing with turkey and vegetables. Too much food but delicious. We brought some meat and vegetables home for the dogs to enjoy.
Laundry dried on the line and now potatoes have been planted...now rest. :thumbup:

Patricia, we could use a rain here and they are calling for one tonight or Sunday. Then grass cutting will begin!

Jane, I've always been in awe of you and Amy's productivity and wondered just where you found your batteries. but today, I'm    :bow:    to you both as I sit on the couch with the first of many coffees.

Believe me, even our batteries s l o w l y die ..

I was just going to read right now but I have to answer PATRICIA's post.  I think that I just keep going for two reasons.  The first is Cooper.  I love having hime her with me and taking walks with him is good for me too.  The rest comes from a feeling that if I quit or slow down, I might come to a full stop and I'm not ready for that.  I really didn't expect to live this long (and this healthy) but as long as I do, I'm going to keep going the best I can.  Come on along! It feels good!  And that's that for now!

Amen to that, Jane!  I whine & grip about working on the house but know I wouldn't be able to do anything if I didn't HAVE to. The cats have kept me moving just feeding & cleaning after them but I'm not sure I'm up to walking a dog again. Time will tell.

I just sent Jack e-mail to see if he minds if I get Bubble to post that kitten's photo.

Amy, how could you turn down mashed potatoes? The meal sounds delicious. How many years?Congratuations, hang in there!
