MARY ANN, many things over the years have called my name.  Sometimes, in the morning when I'm sitting on the porch watching the doggies first thing, I will hear a cup of coffee call my name. 

Also, there is usually a bag of potato chips on top of the fridge and it calls my name continually until I answer.

When I have some kind of application to fill out and it has a deadline, it simply NAGS me until I get it done.

Back when the kids were growing up, the kitchen floor was always hollering "wash me, I'm getting itchy with all this crud on my surface."

You'd be surprised!

Good evenin was a beautiful day.  the rest of the week the paper said to day would be bad with very high humidity and high temps.
Thanks you everyone for kind thoughts. Nothing like my cyber friend. My legs seem to be very weak and I get out of breath if I do a little bite.

Jenny, your celebration sound like something you will remember a long time.

JeanneLee, my thoughts and prays are still with you.

Shirley, I am sure Cole was not as upset, as all his family.  Maybe he will grow up and want to be a firemen, after they just saved him.

June yes I did go by ambulance, I pushed my panic button, three of my neighbors were alerted, the cop was here almost right away and the ambulance was here within 10 min.

Gloria, I think we are going to have some muggy weather the next few days.  Saturday they tell me felt like fall, it was so cool.

Jane, I imagine lots of things call my name too, but I don't usually wear my "ears" unless I'm going somewhere.  I do hear OK, but the sound is garbled, so I don't understand what something is saying.  It's kind of convenient, but things can get messy too!  That's why we have a friend of Tom's come in every so often, maybe like once a month.  And I think she's due!

MARY ANN, I only have one good ear but the potato chips have always managed to holler in my good ear....the coffee, too.  Sometimes the dirty floor makes the mistake of talking into my bad ear and it takes a while to figure out what it wants.  My dad used to call that "selective hearing"  when we were kids.

Gloria de, I am so thankful you have the button to push if you need help. I do worry about you living all alone. When I moved here they insisted we wear the button constantly, especially in the shower as so many accidents happen there.Ours go off if we fall unconscious too. Which happened to me when I first moved here. I was seated on the shower bench, felt faint, and fell, when I put my head down.

I felt good earlier, so took a short walk but it didn't last...felt loopy so came on home. I do hope tomorrow will allow me to attend things. I'm tired of being too tired.
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Carolit would surprise you how much I do.our sectional has two recliners in it. one of them has my name on it and I use it regular. Like today the temperature was good and i worked outside  and in doing honey due chores. mowing and caring the trash and garbage out.and taking pictures that I am going to post when i get figured out how to. on my computer I can do a slide show but do not know how to put it in the format to post it here in S & F . then after noon meal I boiled 2 dozen eggs and shelled them cut them in half long ways and took the yokes out and mixed up the filling and made deviled eggs. Nancy has been busy today also. she made some brownies with Secunia in them moist the best i ever ate. a lady at church gave here the recipe.

Good morning Everyfriend!  I think I slept better last night than I have in a month.  I actually felt rested when I got up.  The temps have been going into the low 60s overnight and it's definiely good sleeping weather.  But last night I was really tired.  When I finally sat down to watch some TV, I went to sleep on the sofa.  Decided that it was time to go to bed no matter what the clock said.

(MARYANN, the bed was calling my name!)

This morning I'll be doing my time behind the check out at Wally World and then when I come home, I'm hoping to have enough left to get one canner full of tomatoes going.  With my new electric canner and the tomatoes all peeled and ready, that shouldn't take too long.  I also want to get some cooking for sauce.  Maybe I'll do that today also because I can get the sauce canned tomorrow morning.

I hope all this works out and I'm not biting off more than I can chew just because I feel rested this morning.

Yesterday, my SIL cut my grass again.  I told him I was getting behind in my payments because of not being there when he cut it previously.  (It costs me one heartfelt hug each time he cuts the grass).  He said I wouldn't want to hug him today because he was so sweaty.  I told him if he didn't mind the tomato smell, I could handle the sweat.  We agreed on on SUPERSIZE hug to cancel all past debts.  My daughter certainly got us a keeper when she brought him home!

Good morning everyone..

Another hot muggy one in the making here. We did have some rain last night ,just a gentle one  that saved me from watering the garden.  :thumbup:

Jane, way to go with all that work done. what about making the sauce in the crock pot overnight???  Both the sauce and tomatoes will taste great come winter and the best part is YOU know what is it them. I checked my supply and I don't need to do tomatoes ,applesauce or green relish this year. Need to do beets and zucchini relish and that is it ..unless a new recipe crosses my path :) Hugs are thee best payment !!

Mary Ann it seems the storm missed us , but they are calling for more rain and some thunderstorms for the remaining of the week.

I hope we hear from Joan soon.

Enjoy your day everyone..

AMY, I thought about using the crock pot for sauce and I haven't discarded that thought yet.  I'll mull it over while I'm smiling at the customers this morning.  I already have the peppers and onions chopped and that would probably be the perfect size for the little jars I use for recipes. 

I don't need a lot of stuff this year either.  I still have 3 jars of "AMY'S ZUCCHINI RELISH" left.  So I think that will hold me.  And now I have 4 jars of mustard sitting beside it.  I think I might need to do beets but that can wait a bit.

Now I better think about getting into uniform so the customers will know who I am.

Hi everyone. It is another beautiful morning here in South Carolina although the humidity is back up today.  Yesterday it was nice all day and the humidity stayed down.

The only thing on my schedule for today is to pay the first of the month bills (which I have already done), make a quick drive to Kroger's to pick up an online grocery order and then this evening Pat and I plan on going out to eat.  There are a couple of other little projects around the house I may tackle later this morning. The last couple of days I have felt better than I did last week for which I am grateful.

Hal, glad you finally got a little rain.  I expect folks like coming to Texas for the lack of a state income tax, having a state that is not heavily in debt and one where there seems to be jobs.  Of course having nice people like you doesn't hurt either.  Do you get a lot of catalogs in your junk mail?  We certainly do and got one this week from a company we had never heard of before. 

Amy, I have never seen mustard powder in any of the grocery stores we have used.  Most stores do not stock bulk foods, in fact I know of none around here. 

Mary Ann, I just checked the lock on our bathroom doors and there is just a pinhole on the outside that probably an ice pick or paper clip  would unlock.  Since we have no children here anymore not much danger of needing to get someone out of a locked bathroom. 

Mary Ann, it is amazing what a relief it is to just lay down sometimes. 

June, remember the parable in the Bible about the mustard seed, which is the tiniest of all seeds that grown into very large bushes?  Amy can correct me if I am wrong but think the mustard powder is from the ground seeds produced by those bushes.  I hope you will feel up to participating in the things today you mentioned yesterday.

Lloyd, hope you don't work so hard today.  You certainly had a busy day yesterday. 

Carol, I can visualize your jumping to get into your car.  Sure it wasn't fun or funny at the time but sure makes a funny image.  Nice of Don to make more biscuits and gravy for you weak neighbor. 

Jane, I hope those talking tomatoes didn't call too loudly.  :) 

Callie, strokes are so scary.  We had a good friend who suffered a severe stroke over 30 years ago that left her crippled and with one hand that didn't want to work.  She was a delightful person and the played a lot of games with she, her husband and another couple as well as going out to eat every couple of weeks.  So sorry that your bridge group is being devastated.  How nice of your grandson to take care of your outside windows and then spend precious time with you.  Loved your story about your son thinking your voice was God's. 

Jeanne, your son certainly started driving at a young age.  I am sure he thought that was great fun. 

Jane, you have a great way with words and word pictures.  My wife also has some of the "selective hearing". 

deAngel, your experience with your panic button is why it is so important that folks living alone that are older have that great service.  Are you able to fix your own meals since you indicate you are so weak?

Good Morning Everyone!

Well it seems I came in right in the middle of some saucy talk.  Hey, Amy, you started it...... ;D

Well I am a little late, but had to balance the checkbook and see if I have any money left for my wife's homecoming tomorrow night.  Now I have to get to the grocery store and get some whole milk for her and my daughters tea when they get in and something to snack on.  I think I will get some BIG lemon/poppy seed muffins.  They make them in their own bakery and they are good.  They will be draggin when they get in, long trip, right at 6000 miles I would guess.

Haven't really stuck my nose out this morning so don't know what they weather is like out, just know it is hot and more than likely humid. 

You folks make me envious talking about all you are canning/have canned.  I am curious about the mustard.  I thought mustard was harvested like wheat and some other grains, with a combine.  Or maybe you are talking about just buying the powder and mixing up your own.
Amy I do like the hot mustard (Colemans) and Asian style and you are right about one thing, too much and it will definitely clean the sinuses.  :P
I recall seeing a documentary film once about Mustard and one point made was how most Mustard is grown in the U.S. and then shipped to Europe for processing and sent back here as a finished product.   

"Mustard has been a major specialty crop in North America since supplies from western Europe were interrupted by World War II. California and Montana were the major production areas until the early 1950s. Production of mustard in the Upper Midwest began in the early 1960s. Mustard is currently grown on approximately 250,000 acres annually in the United States. North Dakota has the largest share of domestic production. Canadian mustard production increased for twenty years until it peaked in the mid-1980s. Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan currently grow a large share of the world's mustard crop. The French people are the largest consumers of mustard (1.5 lbs/person/year), and buy approximately 70% of the annual Canadian production."

Hope everyone has a good day.

I'm doing my early "skimming" so didn't open a Word Pad to remember what each said.... but have to jump in and ask if the mustard powder is same as the DRY mustard I find in the spice aisle in our Kroger store.  I have one recipe (coleslaw) that calls for dry mustard and as a complete dummy with recipes, picked only thing I could find on the shelf. 

Callie, was wondering where you have been.  My sincere sympathy for your friend AND all of you that are suffering with her.  You've been so active as a group, does takes the edge off the gatherings. 

Gloria/linedancer, sounds like you know what to do when needed, and a lot of good friends willing to help.... I'm sure you've earned their caring & loyalty.  Your attitude probably has much to do with bouncing back, too. 

Larry, all the bathroom doors we've had since the '60s have the pin holes to unlock.... with a straightened paper clip or most any thin object.  The RV bathroom has a key, sounded important when I bought because the salesman pointed out several times "the key was hanging inside the cabinet right next to the door on the outside".  I've never locked the door but that key is still there.  :thumbup:

I did get by the County Extension Office yesterday, with a limb cut off the sweet gum tree, to see if the icky leaves are because I did not water for a couple weeks or if the tree has bugs.  They called back after the Master Gardener had a look, all thought probably web worms and no treatment needed.  I thought it might help to have sprayed before the webs enclosed the bugs, but not recommended.   We didn't have a hard enough winter to kill bugs so hopefully we will this year. 

Hal, for sure a clean sink is a winner when the official cook returns!  Sounds like you have everything under control.  Those muffins will taunt me until I visit Sam's Club, they make some awesome ones, too.  All the men in my life (father, husband & sons) like hot mustard & flavored kinds.  I like a tad of plain old yellow kind, not too much. 

Better get busy, I ran the pool vac already this morning & watered the front yard so far.  We didn't get enough rain to soak in, gave the leaves on the trees a bath but everything still thirsty.  Going to heat back up so want to enjoy the cooler temps while possible. 
Hugs to all and have a happy day.  Shirley
