Hello Pickle lady. They sound like they will be delicious. I just have not felt like myself lately. I even signed out of TY. It is depression or something or the heat but I gave myself a swift kick and today I am better. Of course, being awake all night while Russ coughed congestion did not help. Tom comes tonight. I am going to give the both of them my chicken noodle casserole and in a bit I will make Brownies. Me I am going to roast veggies with a few scallops thrown it. It is hot here. About 2 it rained for 5 minutes. 90's again today. Our swimming pool has no shade. I hope it drops to 80 so I can go in and do water erobics. A lot of my new plants died Debbie left too much water. So will start again. I hope you have a good day and keep cool. HUGS,Reed
you too Kathy, been thinking about your blog, I went to the eye doc yesterday, and I thought she was going to say my vision had gotten worse, but it's the same. I think I might have been blurry because my bg was a little high when I was there. of course, waiting 2 and a half hours in the waiting room gave me a chance to bring it down, lol. hope to see you on the chat later today or weekend.
Hell Kathy. I hope you correct bikette. I am from Florida and not a schmucks, HA HA. Nut you can tell her I flunked TYPING.
I think I slept I was dreaming of portable toilets ???I looked at the clock and it was 5:30.
Feeling pretty good. Knees bad but I can live with it. Another day in the 90's.It is s hot I prefer to stay in the house. My BG 102. TOPS tomorrow so have to get the Agenda ready. RAP SESSION different ways t cook veggies. Might get some good tips. We als bring food for the church food pantry. We use 3 big rooms and they only charge us $50 a mnth so to show gratitude we each bring food for their pantry. I vnever did get to doing the laundry. What have you been up to. I hope you are keeping cool/ Take cre. HUGS,Reed
It is a big place up here! I love it when some relative from England calls about coming to visit us and they want to know where we are relative to Vancouver because they only have a couple days to spend here. They have a problem trying to grasp how any cross country trip could take more than half a day by car. Heck, it takes 2 days by Plane to travel coast to coast to coast. We in the Riviera part of Canada - further south than you! Minneapolis is considerably north'er than SW Ontario and I'm even in the SW tip of SW Ontario - just a couple hours from Detroit, in London ON. So our latitude compares to places like Rome and Denver and Northern California. Hard to believe sometimes! We are south of at least a dozen American States, including all of those west of Lake Michigan and most of New England also. Most Americans don't usually think of us Canucks in those terms, but I can often better understand how those poor schmucks in Florida feel when they're suffering from their humidity too. We just never get much in the way of high winds or super storms... No earthquakes either and floods are rare because we live near a winding river and some shallow fresh water lakes. No oceans here. This is probably the safest place on the planet for natural 'disasters' but ever so often we get some wind / snow / ice damage in winter and that becomes our "hurricane" ... we all huddle together inside brick homes with deep basements and wait for the storm to peter out and move off. Not a lot of trailer parks here - none in the winter except for a few in the national parks. And I'm always surprised to see the homes in the southern US - so many wood frame or aluminum (clapboard) homes. Lots of huge estates too, but most of those homes flooded in New Orleans were not brick and had no basements. Even in Tornado alley my gal pal there tells me people don't have basements and same in Florida with the shallow water table there. I'd guess that about 80% of the homes in London On. are brick or brick veneer, with solid cement footings and basements. The rest are mostly aluminum siding with those same basements. Ain't nothin gonna push these places of their foundations - nothing this far inland anyway. And the way my hubby repairs windows and doors, so that "no man will tear asunder", it would take a helluva twister to shake them loose. If a tornado were to whip through our 'hood', I would fully expect to see our house and its bricks all shattered and strewn about, but with the windows and doors still standing! Now if we could keep the people outa here, we'd have the safest place on the planet. Fear not, Kathy - the weather dude says we're sending some cooler air 'down' to you this week so hopefully you'll be able to breathe again soon. I would have tossed you a snow ball earlier but we didn't get much snow last winter and the whole 'meltoff' part was just a trickle this spring. Too bad too. I don't drive much either so I really don't mind the snow. I have a handicapped permit on my car to allow me to park closer to stores as I cannot carry parcels and still stay upright at the same time. I love it when people ask me about my apparently non-existent handicap... I just tell them I'm "legally blind" and wait for them to cock their heads... "whut?" Either that or I tell them I'm mentally handicapped and start swatting imaginary bugs off my shoulders. None of their dang business anyway. Hang in there, girl.
Morning Kathy. I had a good night of sleep. I hope it is not going to be 3 nights no the 4th night yes. I see we are going to be 97 or more today. I will do laundry andgo to drug store. I wish I could get my pills and Russ's pills all on the same day instead of being scattered. Tom left this morning. He did a lot of weeding replanting. The vinca died new too much rain. So he got purple pinta hope they live. I think your temp has cooled. Any plans for today? Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Hello Kathy. What a wonderful way to beat no power. Very glad you got AC friends chat sleep and breakfast..great way to go. I was up all night no matter how hard I tried I just could not sleep. Tom ran and he wanted a lumber jack breakfast. The he stripped all the beds turned the mattresses made the beds. Where does he get his energy. I then washed them. We went to Hammock to shop....nice ride along the ocean. The vincaI plated 3 weeks ago died. Taking them back later and getting something else. I hope all is well with you and you are keeping cool.This weather staying with us all next week. Take care. I care. HUGS,Reed
HI Kathy - What a resourceful idea !! To rent a room in a hotel. It will be 103 here today. I do not plan to go outside. How was your "free" breakfast ? I am in between packing for our trip to CA. We leave on Wed for 8 days. We will be visiting our daughter, sil and g-son. Hope you have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, I understand it is very soon, and I may not be here. Stay cool. Cat
Good Morning, Kathy. Is it still hot there? It is not bad here right now but it will climb yo to the 90's lter. Got the laundry done,vacummed the rugs dry mopped the hardwood floors and am popped. Tom coming to night and wants meatloaf. So I have to go drug store and I will go to Winn-Dixie for a few things including hamburg. He has the Readings at Church on Sunday s I will practice with him. Russ is doing much,much better doing a lot of thins watering the gardens. They shaved and trimmed my palm trees this morning. The HOA insists we doi it once a year $18 tree. I admit they look better. You been out and about? I ony go if I have too...too steamy. Take good care you know I care. HUGS,Reed
Congrats on your featuredness, Kathy. I've been reading about your recent ordeal and hospital stay and empathize big time. My hubby went through a similar cellulitis scare and it was quite the threat! He now wears his fashionable compre$$ion stockings but doesn't sport those pretty purple legs anymore... the sacrifice! Keep on keepin on, girl ... and keep it cool if you can!
Good Morning,Kathy. I saw on TV Minnie was 100 yesterday. In our backyard when Tom was grilling it was 102. I so pity those poor folks without power....especially in VA they have no idea when power will be returned....all the food spoiled. Sorry your affair was not good food so so serbice poor. Been putting it off but I MUST do the laundry. Then the drug store. I so wish my medicines all had the same date. Did you watch any of the fireorks shows? I thught the Capital 4th was much better today. Take good care of yourself and keep cool. HUGS,Reed
"Stuff"!! How's the weather at your end...hot and muggy here...was going to weed after the brief rain shower we had here yesterday....but the air was very thick....and my back still recuperating from having washed the kitchen floor 3x over on all fours (the old fashion way) the day before, when our middle grandson Riley (2) decided to spit out his juice all over the place. I would have been arrested for what I toyed doing to him! The room that our daughter was in before moving into her own place is now taken up as a storage room for Timothy and Steph (son and d-i-l). (Our son and daughter and theirs were here since mid January since the house they shared burned to the ground. No one was hurt, except for 3 pets that perished. Our daughter has moved into a new apartment, and our son has purchased a house and they are moving out of our place mid July!) The storage unit they have rented is all full!!! They're moving into their own house starting the 19th of this month! The repeat empty nest syndrome lol. It sure will feel odd to have the whole house to ourselves again! Steph (d-i-l) has a bad ear/sinus infection. She went to a walk in clinic yesterday, and was put on meds, including ear drops. Early evening, her ear was bleeding, which is not uncommon with ear infections...but I nevertheless offered to take her to ER, knowing that we'd be there for at least 6 hours...no no no...she didn't want to go. Midnight, as I'm coming out of the washroom to go to bed, she and Timothy are at the kitchen table...seems that now she feels she should take me up on that earlier offer. I said to her, "you realize that we'll be there all night 'till mid morning anyway!" She had gone to the internet, and of course got frightened by the comments and suggested diagnoses of her bleeding ear! (sigh....who listens to me!!) So I said..."call telehealth" (a telephone access here, that helps to give you a heads up about your symptoms). They basically paraphrased my comment to her..."you have been seen, you DO have an ear infection which may bleed, you are on medication for it, you do NOT have cancer nor have you suffered trauma to the head. Call your doctor in the morning if it is still bleeding" Who listens to me!!! So this morning, she called her doctor who will see her at....3pm, and the appointment was later changed to 7pm! Guess the doc doesn't share her concern!! So...life goes on in the Miller household! Sounds SO much like a soap that I should ask you to stay tuned tomorrow...same time same station! How's life at YOUR end?? hugs and best wishes....linda
Yes very bad hot weather for sure. This morning it was a steam bath and 80 degrees without the sun shining. Hopefully this is the worst of it and we get some relief. stay cool the best one can is all one can do and hug your airconditioner.
Good Morning,Kathy. The FORCE must have been with me as I slept from 11 to 7:15. Next the plumber arrived early. They put in 2 new Delta faucets in the Master bathroom. I tested BG 102. I went to drug store yesterday late. Of course,the doctor did not fax in the refill so have to go today. Tom will grille outdoors tomorrow but we will et inside as it will be too hot on the deck. My A/C running non stop. Russ doing much much better. Are you doing anything for the 4th? Not much else to report except my checking account balanced. Have a wonderful day. Keep cool. Hugs,Reed
