GOOD MORNING CHICKLETS!!

Sunny, bright day in Indy....a lil on the chilly side, but I will take it. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day but only 50 degrees. A little on the burrrrrr side for me.

Mothers day went well but was very stressful drive wise and trying to cram everything into one day. Started out we arrived to visit with dad at about 9 am. Then left there at 10:30, got to Cs parent's house at noon, off to Taco Bell then to ice cream. It wasn't DQ, it was this lil privately owned ice cream joint. I had half of a small strawberry sundae with pecans, no whip cause me no like whip....well depends on who is doing the whipping...bahaha. C got a turtle sundae, the others got peanutbutter ididerod (sp). It is PB ice cream with oreo cookie ice cream in a waffle cone flipped upside down in an cup. You scrape the top of into the bowl then is the part in the waffle cone then the cup part. Silly if you ask me but that is there thing and I went along with it. Then we left there at 2 to get home by 4 as my kids came over with the sweetest cards, a new 1 1/2 foot yard gnome for the garden and a mini-teeny-weenie pink rose bush that is only supposed to get about a foot tall once planted. C brought me lovely planter and sweet card on Saturday night. All the kids left about 6:30 and I collapsed.

Cutting Cs grass last Wednesday, somewhere I got into poison oak and have a couple of streaks across my upper chest/neck area. Itches like the dickens, but refraining. Taking allergy meds and using cortisone ointment on it. Just don't want it to spread, lil close too close to my face.

SHADDIE...hope the pain subsides soon and you are back to your ornery self. Hmmm capacity planning? Is that like Humana moving us from a large suite to this sardine can suite? lol

HAPPY...what a lovely bird on that feeder. My dad would absolutely love it. I may print it out and take it with me tonight to show him. He loves birds...he actually got a BLUEJAY<----as mean as they are, to come eat peanuts off the lil table next to his lawnchair. Now that is brave. The greenhouse is such a plus and fresh lettuce, I am jealous.

CHELLE...so happy for you that things are working out and coming together for you. See you just have to believe it, not just say the words of encouragement. Hugs..

LAURA....love love love Pampered Chef. I have a zillion items from Pampered Chef from parties that were going strong back when I lived in the sticks. I have that round stone also, used to have the square one but it bounced off the shelf and broke in about 6 pieces. booo..

CEEG....glad you are having a good time in Branson and getting a few laughs at the shows.

MELLIE...Another peaceful night, amen! Glad Richie could fix the chair before the wheel came off. I have seen a few cars like that on the highway, it is not pretty. Have a marvy Monday sister!

Better get this posted...love and hugs, have a great day/night....

Annie - I forgot your Dad likes birds so much. Here's a better shot of the Grosbeak. DH waited very patiently with his camera (much better zoom).

Morning all!

Happy - Nice bird feeder, and a nice pic of the bird - looks like he's got a seed in his beak. Let's see if the feeder keeps the squirrels at bay. I suppose you really do need a greenhouse to extend your growing season up there. Yeh, I think the people that took out the greenhouse have kids and probably wanted the yard space more than the greenhouse. Thanks for your take on The Guilt Trip. I'll have to get on the list at the library or see if it's available on Netfix, or maybe Redbox. Re the pizza stone, ours has the metal rack. I checked it out online and see that it's been retired now, and the built in handles are what they sell now. I think I prefer the perfectly flat stone.

Michelle - Glad the job is going well, and fingers re the SD job oppty. Too funny to think that a possible move down there wil be "only a 10-hour" drive!! It might be a good thing for this to happen sooner than later, before the dust settles, and you and Santa get comfortable. Whatever happens, we know you can definitely do it!!

Shad - Hope you're getting some good rest and recovery time and the pain stays manageable.

Mel - Wow, sounds like it was a crazy weekend - calls every two hours!!! I hope everyone pays attention to the sign on your door and you can get some peace and rest today. You sure deserve it. Yeh, the lab rescue organization has a lot of wonderful volunteers. I need to seriously think about what I might be able to do for them. They have people who act as foster parents to dogs while they are in the process of getting healthy and waiting to be adopted, they have people who transport dogs taken into the organization, people who screen the adoption applicants, etc.

Annie - What a whirlwind day for you yesterday, but it sounds wonderful (and tiring). You must post a photo of your new gnome when you find a home for it in your yard. I really want a gnome - gonna shop for one and use one of my gift cards to pay for it. Ick, poison oak! I hope it goes away fast!! How uncomfortable. I'm not one for those parties where you buy stuff, but since I LOVE kitchen gadgets, I don't mind going to the Pampered Chef parties at all.

Ceejay - Sorry to hear you had tummy troubles on your vacation - I hope you feel better soon and have a safe drive back home.
===

Sore in many spots today. I went to the kettlebell class to find I was the only student there. We decided to do some k'bell and then some TRX. TRX is a strap system that gets secured to a beam or similar and it uses your own body weight to do strength training. OMG, it was tough - you have to really use your core to keep yourself stable while doing the moves. At one point he had my feet in the loops so that they were suspended (probably 4-6 inches off the floor) and me trying to do some plank moves usually done with feet on the floor. Oy!

I came home to find bf on the phone w/ his mum - she'd gone out to a lunch on Saturday with her sister and a niece at a restaurant that is known for giant portions. She had a burger and ended up sick. She didn't come for dinner. Bf had already prepped the roast (it had to sit in the fridge for 2-24 hours anyway) and side dish, so it's ready to go for tonight. Hopefully she's feeling better and can make it tonight. Either way, we have to prepare the meal tonight.

We had lunch and made a couple stops including Walmart. I walked doggy and then relaxed. I was beat from that kbell class and slept like the dead last night.

Nice day today, low 60's expected, but cooler down here by the lake. The admin said this is the boss's last day before her 3-week vacation - I thought it was tomorrow. Guess we'll see.

I'd really like to go home and be a couch potato tonight, but if bf's mom is coming to dinner, it'll be a bit more than that, but it'll still be nice.

Better skeedaddle now.

Morning all,

Guess we had quite a dip in temps last night. A couple of my plants in the greenhouse are rather droopy today - the basil looks a bit frostbitten and the green beans and a couple of the tomatoes are looking a bit sad. It's supposed to be sunny today and while in the 40's at night, not quite so cold so I hope they will recover.

They have a new chef at the casino and he's really trying to up their game (no pun intended) for the buffet. They had a marvelous looking offering for yesterday so I told DH that's what I wanted for our one meal out for the week. They had lunch from 11 to 2 and dinner from 4 to 8pm. I would have done either but the dinner offerings were more to DH's liking. He decided to take a nap in the afternoon so we got there just after 5pm. There was a LONG line there. They were giving out numbers and we were number 68. They were calling number 24 at the time. They had turned the usual kind of sad room into something quite nice with tablecloths, candles on the table and all the ladies got long stemmed roses and a glass of champagne. It was 8:10pm when they finally called our number. I know DH was being a trooper because he doesn't like to eat much past 6pm, much less our biggest meal of the day. You pay up front and I noticed that it was a few dollars less than advertised. Went in to eat and aside from the prime rib, it was a totally different menu than what was listed on the advertisement. And that menu was why we waited almost 3 hours to eat. Also the tablecloths and candles and roses were gone. I asked the meat carver what happened to the menu and he said they were wiped out. I don't think in the history of the casino they ever served that many people. I was a little upset because I would never have waited that long had I known they ran out of the good stuff. But I have to say, what we did have was delicious. DH was very happy in fact because some of the things I wanted like roasted asparagus, Eggs Oscar - girly food - was replaced by things like twice baked potatoes and steak and peppers - MAN food We did have a nice dinner, even if it was very late. Next Friday they are doing a special fish fry - this time we learned our lesson, we will be there 30 minutes before it opens. Lest you think we are pigs, remember that it's REALLY HARD to get nice meals here. Mostly it's fish fry, burgers and pizza. I do miss the variety of grocery stores and restaurants from back in Chicago - but that's about all I miss.

We were supposed to take a travel trip to the home improvement store but I am just not feeling up to it today. My back hurts for some reason. Will have to check it out for another day. Other than that, just housework and I should get to the 2 books I checked out from the library. I picked up a few groceries yesterday so we are good with food for the week.

Ceejay - sorry you took ill. That's particularly rough when you have to travel. Hope you will get home without incident.

Annie - whooo you make me tired with your busy day. We had one of those tiny pink rose bushes in TN. I loved it but they are quite fragile. I hope yours takes and blooms well. Oh no on the poison oak! I sure hope it doesn't spread. Don't they make some soap or something to get the oil off your skin? Bluejays are pigs. Many consider them to be a nuisance bird because they bully the smaller birds. I think they are pretty as long as they play nice. We would feed them peanuts also - they are pretty brave when it comes to getting near to humans to get food.

Mel - too funny about the avatar - for sure I can see you rolling back and forth pulled in all directions. VERY fitting I guess we are all getting a bit of cool weather this week. Long range forecast pattern for us is a cooler than usual summer. Which is ok, I only like hot when there's a pool to cool off in, otherwise 70 degrees is right up my alley. I don't think that's true tho for your area - might be "the heat is on". Just what you need - hot seniors and NOT in a good way We are hoping we can attract orioles here too this year. I guess you put a couple of nails in a board and tack it to a tree and they will eat from that. Or you can get oriole feeders with a sugar water solution similar to the hummingbird stuff. They sure are pretty birds. Beats looking at goofus people Hope you day quiets down.

Shad - hope you got a good night's sleep and wake up feeling better.

Michelle - good luck with the interviews.

Hi Laura will catch up with you later.

Time to go find some breakfast. Have a good one chicks.

Ah there's Laura typing over my head again. "Cooler by the lake..." that is SO CHICAGO and it really is true too. Whoowee what a work out in that class. Sometimes it's not so good to get one on one attention - hope you are not too sore today. Re: the lab rescue - I'm sure you can find some way to help out. I'm sure they are happy for any help they can get. They need foster folks here too at the shelter, I just think I'd get so attached to the animals I would not want to give them up.

Morning all,
Well the pain is not too bad at all. I can feel the jawbone, but it is just an ache not full blown pain. Didn't sleep too well last night but that is only to be expected since I slept most of the afternoon away. And now Miss Puss and I are up and at it well before daybreak - her because her ever empty tummy demands sustenance and me because I couldn't stay in bed any longer. My teeth have been cleaned about 4 times since 2.00am this morning because of the dreadful taste in my mouth and I am now enjoying a cup of tea which is cooled to the extent that I don't get pain when I drink it. Today is the biopsy and apart from the check up for my teeth and removal of the stitches in 2 weeks time, I am done with medical appointments and aren't I glad about that.
It's cool and misty and damp over here. Mind you our cool is about 20C at the moment. Around 70F give or take a degree or two. It will probably make 80F by lunchtime. This rain is good for the beans, but not good for me to be outside and chopping hedges or digging gardens - so the weeds can take a break for another couple of days before I get to them. I'll concentrate on the inside some more.
DS2 and G/F have bought a duplex property. One side is quite habitable and the other needs a lot of work done on it. They have investigated putting in some of the refugees that seem to flood our shores and need rehoming while they wait for their visas and permanent residency. I figure that since so much of my tax dollars go towards investigating, feeding, housing and caring for the health of these people, my family might as well get some benefit out of it. Anyway, they are now furnishing the first unit and are raiding the cupboards and stored boxes for things like dinner sets, cups, glasses, pots and pans. I'm getting rid of a lot of clutter and it is going off to be useful. Bit of a bonus. I might not be in favour of a lot of these people being let willy nilly into our shores but the world is a rotten place and we have to do what we can.

Annie - a gnome! Do you have other gnomes in the yard? Some of them are quite cute. Sounds like you had a busy Mothers Day. That ice cream thing sounds pretty awful to me. I like my ice cream straight. Just give it to me NOW!
Capacity planning is similar to stuffing a whole lot of people into a space - however it doesn't look at the floor plan! It's about putting a group of people with like qualifications together - eg. electricians, working out the number of hours that they are available to work and finding jobs for those hours. We (in the mines) like to make sure our workers are fully occupied you know, to compensate for the huge amounts of pay we give them. Lets hope they don't bring capacity planning into your office eh?

Michelle - I forgot that this job you have is a contract job. Well let's hope something permanent comes up if that is what you want. Personally I've done contracting for so long now that I wouldn't know what to do with a full time permanent.

Happy - nice to see the bird pictures coming through again. Don't think I would have hung around waiting for a table to be free like you did. The menu must have been something special. Hope the little plants come back for you.

Ceejay - hope you feel better now

Laura - I enjoyed hearing about the friends of the Lab. These people do a lot for the poor animals. I watch the GSD page on facebook and cringe every time they talk about an animal being in a high kill shelter. Geez man, the authorities should licence the owners not the dogs. There is a group in NZ called Paws Justice that along with the RSPCA takes owners and people who mistreat animals to court and often manage to win reasonable sentences for these people who are IMHO worse than animalistic. Enjoy the pizza stone.

Mel - what a Mothers Day you had. Maybe you need to schedule another one next weekend. Are the kids still coming up for the summer? Poor Jen. She doesn't get much of a break does she. I may take today as a rest day, but then again I might just up and go somewhere nice - oh probably not, it is raining again. No walk for me today then. I will have to try the yoga/pilates/ tai chi thing on the floor again. I exercise 5 days a week but it aint doing much I can tell you.

Hello Purasilk. Nice to hear from you. Are you just new to the threads?

Well

Hi everyone,

Shad - I'm glad the pain has lessened. I think I missed what you were having biopsied, but I hope it turns out to be free and clear of any nastiness.

I tried to work from home this morning (since we're allowed and encouraged to do so on Mondays and Fridays), but I couldn't connect. So I went into the office, had the support team figure out what was wrong..and went home at lunch to work from home the remainder of the day.

I'm glad I did because I got a call from my ex. Our 12 year old dog Doppler had stopped eating. He was being quite finicky for the last several weeks, but would eat more often than not. Even still he had lost nearly 1/4 of his body weight (he's just a 20lb dog and today weighed in at 15lbs). My ex took him to the vet today and the vet said he just wasn't absorbing any of the food he ate. 12 years is not old for a dog of his size...but I guess after having diabetes for much of his life, his little body just gave out. The vet ran a blood test which confirmed what the vet suspected...that Doppler's organs were shutting down. There was nothing the vet could do. Doppler was dying. So since there was no hope for recovery, my ex had the vet put Doppler to sleep. So very sad. I'm heartbroken. When I pick Santa up from day care today, I'm going to give him an extra big hug and Thank God that I have him. I'm glad I got to spend some quality time with Doppler before I moved west.

Good morning ladies. Just enough time for a quick before I start work.

I hope those who need rest, get to rest; and those who need to be productive (like me) are productive.

Much love,

Good Morning.........

Started my day off at the dentist. Had two fillings replaced that fell out. My bottom front two teeth. THis is about the 6th time they have been replaced from fall outs. It is hard to get fillings to stay in them. Bout every two years. He is only charging me for one of them tho....yee haaa.

MELLIE...V I C T O R Y on the new front tires for the chair. Good things come to those who wait! Your long wait is ridiculous tho. I think you should put an alarm in the senior's apts, then every night pull the alarm in their place so they can see how it feels...ba hahaha.

CHELLE....so sorry to hear about Doppler. My heart breaks for you. Glad to you have Santa to love on. May a fluke but seems like once you left the doggies in the x's care, both of them went down hill. Just sayin' you must be the better parent.

SHADWICK....yep got the yard gnomes all over my front rock garden and flower garden. I love the little critters, however they sorta resemble my xh. hahaha...short and white furry hair, all he needs is the hat and little boots...ba haha, I am lmao right now. I worked with design engineers for 23 years while at RCA/GE/Thomson. They are in a league of their own. Strange and nerdie, but very intelligent. Only a handful had a tolerable personality. Glad you are wrapping up on your med appts. Do let us know how the biopsy comes out.

HAPPY...great the food at the casino is better, too bad you didn't get the best of it. I agree with you on the bluejays, normally they dive at your head when you get too close. They just seem mean...like a gang or something. By the time I figured out I had the poison oak it was too late, already broke out. I got some Campho-Phenique to rub on it to dry it out then some topical benedryl cream that blocks the histamine. All and all it does feel better now but still bumpy and red.

LAURA....I am convinced you are taking torture classes and not exercise classes. Holy cow you are on a roll. Hope DIL is feeling better and enjoyed dinner with you last night.

CEEG...feeling better? Safe travels home sister.

Hello Purasilk!

Better get busy, didn't get here to 10 due to dentist appt. It is now 11 and I am just in no hurry to start this work day...hahahha

Love and hugs

Morning all.

Mel - Hope you can catch up on your sleep today - maybe a nice nap?? How great the town is getting you the new front tires on your chair - no sarcasm, they'd be lost without you in that building and they know it!! Bf's mom is still not feeling back to normal and she was unable to join us for dinner last night. If she's not feeling well today, she said she's going to the doctor. LOL re your comment re the kettlebell class! Next week is the last one - and it's the make-up class for the one the instructor missed. I sure hope we have another student besides me this time!!

Michelle - I'm so very sorry to hear about Doppler. So sad for you and the ex. It wasn't so long ago you lost Mischief. Dogs with medical problems add a whole new level to the heartbreak because of their shortened life span.

Shad - I'm glad the pain isn't too bad. I recall when I had my wisdom teeth extracted many years ago that the pain didn't last long from the extraction itself, but it seemed like my jaws got tired quickly when I started eating solid food again. Hope the biopsy comes out clean. It's nice that some of your castoff items can be used in ds2's rental unit. I'm with you - I'm not tempted by all the fancy ice cream flavors or all the stuff added to it (except for rocky road). Yes, people who neglect or abuse animals are some of the lowest life forms around. Going anywhere nice now that all your appointments are done for the time being??

Happy - Glad you had a good meal on Sunday, but too bad it wasn't what you anticipated - and that looooong wait! I wouldn't have waited, but I understand your options are much fewer up there, so it's not as simple as going to another place in the area. Is your back feeling better today??

Ceejay - You're probably on your way home. Safe travels!

Annie - Looks like you're getting the same warm weather we're gonna have today. Whoohoo!

As I mentioned to Mel, bf's mom was still under the weather, so we split the roast and froze a big hunk and cooked the smaller portion just for bf and I. It was really tasty. The price was steep, but I guess you get what you pay for... The homemade au gratin taters were very yummy too. And we also ate the dessert we bought - bf had tiramisu and I had a napoleon.

On top of that I'd also succumbed to the snack monster on the way home from work yesterday and bought a bag of those cheese-filled pretzels and had about 2/3 of the bag. No surprise that my weight is up 2 pounds overnight, so I don't have high hopes for a loss today at my ww weigh-in.

No movie tonight - it was moved to Thursday this week. Not sure if I'll go to an exercise class or just get out in the yard and enjoy the weather.

Okay, better get this posted before another interruption comes along.
