Hello Marie. A small set back. My right leg began to ache and my shoulder. Bed rest great. I found out the problem. Using my feet to work the WC I was taking too many long strides. Today I took baby steps pain almost gone. Thank God for A/C, We did not even go in the back yard it was 105.Mornings are not good for Russ so I am pleasxed he does not have to drive me to TOPS.I had a good night. I have found Tylenol is better than the sleeping pills. How are things with you? I hope better. Give my best to Ed. Have a good night. HUGS,Reed

Good afternoon,Marie. I did not have a good night,. My knees ached from working the wheelchair. I did get to Mass. The priest from India going to a church in Jacksonville. Funny...his replacement from IndiA. I could understand him a little better. Russ's legs really swelling. I hope August 11 gets here soon. That is when he sees the heart specialist. We gave beeb saying right along it is his heart. How are you doing? Cooking like mad? Give my best to Ed.We are under a heat advisory. Take care. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie, I hope that you are having fun with the preparations for all the contests that you are going to enter with the fair. It sounds like a lot of work but a lot of fun. I think I will try to make some cornbread for dinner tonight. Out of the box of course. We are going to have sausage with onions. I think it will go good together.
My garden is really thriving. Something ate my parsley but it grew back. I think I will take the scissors and go harvest some of the herbs. We have plenty of different kinds. Time to go water. It is amazing how rewarding a garden is and it asks for only sun and water. It is quite inspiring.

Hi Marie, I know that a lot of the people we have for friends are having a hard time now. It is best to keep busy I think. I am going to the VA this afternoon in hopes that they can tell me what is going on. I had an ultrasound and my gall bladder is clear but my liver had some kind of growth in it. I have been feeling poorly but I feel better today.
We have had really beautiful weather lately. It stormed yesterday and cooled things off. I am having a lot of fun in the garden but have not gotten to put the feeders out yet. Maybe in autumn. I see a lovely cardinal hanging around but he didn't go diving at my head yet!
I think that dragonflies are lovely. All we have in the forest are thin black ones. They have two wings. I would love to draw them. Take care. Ellen

Did you ever think to do a dragonfly quilt? I would love that!

Hello Marie. Another terrible night. Up all night. I think Russ was on my mind, He is in terrible shape. Now he cannot walk, I am so afraid he will fall. I gave him my walker,I wish his heart doctor appointment is not until Aug 11,How are things with you> Did you sleep> When does the Fair start. That will keep you busy. Give my best to Ed. Take care, Hugs,Reed

Hello Marie. This has not been one of my better days. In bed a lot. Rain dampness and heavy therapy last session cause ,y entire left side and arm to ache. I finally broke down and took a percopcet. Russ was terrible. In a fog. Talked Ragtime and could hardly wAlk. He tried a new antibiotic and I think that was the cu;[tit. Tomorrow will be better. Boy you have a lot of interesting things in the future. Chili contest bread you can do it. Hope Ed doing ok.Big auto sales here. Always good to hear from you. I suppose I will get better each day. I know I am trying. Take good care.HUGS,POPS

Hey sister. So today Joann's had a big mess of coupons for 50% off (non-sale items, of course) so I trudged over there and everything I needed was on sale - 30% off.
I got some olive cotton knit to make this
although am going to modify the lapels and bring them out more to get that ruffly cascading look. Wish me luck.

Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night PTL. I was told use walker more. If I go to church just yet I know I cannot walk down that long aisle. I will use WC so I cannot kneel. The priest will come to me to give me communion. Did you have any bread orders at the Guild? It is hot here but the humidsity is higher. You cannot move. The tree people did the palm trees in my neighbors back yard. Yep stuff came in my yard hit the butterfly bush but they came and picked the stuff up. No more of yhat until next year. Russ seems to be doing better. I keep trying to get him in to the doctor before August luck. How was your night? Give my best to Ed. I broke my Reading glasses. You know I can see just as well with the ones from CVS. Take good care of yourself. Thinking of you and Ed always. HUGS, POPS
