Good morning chicks,

Going to be a long day for me - double shift at the store. I did go to bed earlier last night but was restless and would have loved to have slept more this morning but oh well, stoke up on the coffee. I was outside planting yesterday and my cousin decided to stop by. We were looking at my garden. My chives are flowering and I was doing some reading and they said the chive flowers are edible. He said he cuts his off and I popped one in my mouth. It definitely tasted of chive. And long after I swallowed it, the flavor got more and more intense. Feels like I ate the entire patch of chives. Brushed my teeth three times last night and still woke up tasting chive. : Don't think I'll be eating any more flowers - just because you can doesn't mean that you should. I did get all but 1 load of towels done with laundry. Got more planting done but about 5pm the mosquitos got so bad I could not stand being outside any more. DH has a yard fogger he says works well but the thing is so chemical potent that I hate to breathe it. Talked to Mom yesterday, think we will bring her up for a visit next month. She would not enjoy the mosquitoes or cooler weather right now.

Mel - that's quite a long day for you if you had to swap out chairs. Guess they really had you zipping back and forth! As you say the extra cash will be nice. Don't tire yourself out too badly.

Annie - sorry they fired your buddy. Not sure turning on your computer is the most accurate mark of coming in - I guess with no official boss everyone is sort of monitoring themselves then? Sounds like they were looking to make up a reason to get rid of her. Besides losing a friend this will mean more work for everyone left - oh joy! Adorable shot of Lil Man on FB today.

Michelle - hope you got caught up with work and enjoyed your date. The dog walk fundraiser sounds like fun. Good cause, good exercise, good social opportunity - who could ask for more! Have a good time and raise lots of money.

Ceejay - I know what you mean - isn't it kind of sad to realize just how short we are??? I'm not even sure we can get away with being called "petite" any more. Glad you had a nice visit with the cousins.

Laura - good luck with the pruning. I was not good at that either - would take tiny snips at things whereas DH just took the cutters and whap. I think you have to have an eye for it. Be careful you don't get cut.

Shad - have a good sniff at the rose garden for all of us.

Time to hop in the shower and get some breakfast in me. Have a good Saturday everyone. Play hard!

Missing in action again. *sigh*
Yesterday was long and painful. I had the little guy on his harness and we went outside for a while. He loved it. DS2 and G/f are a little nervous about him going outside since the last cat got lost or was stolen - we think the latter. Anyway, out we went and he loved it. Wasn't so sure about wet feet but he did enjoy himself. Then after a run around and we came back inside he went exploring around the house. When he came back I realised the harness was missing so I went looking for it. Found it on the windowsill in the third bedroom. Went to put it back on so we could go out and work and I must have caught something painful in the clip thingy. He went ballistic and while I was trying to catch him to sort it all out, I got in the way of teeth and claws. My poor little pinky just bled and bled. Finally got him sorted and then had to clean up the finger and then clean up the blood that had splattered up and down walls and over the floor. Believe me there was a lot. It has taken overnight to stop the bleeding completely.

Apart from the odd time I step on him or his tail we are getting along just fine now. I haven't and won't try to put the harness on again. DS2 can have that pleasure when he gets back tomorrow.

Annie - great picture of the little bloke. Geez he is growing up fast isn't he. That is bad news on the worker front. Over here she would sue for wrongful dismissal. It's not as if she didn't have any witnesses.
Good work on cleaning out the Dad stuff. Never an easy job.

Happy - hope you have a good day with a full days work at the store.

Michelle - the dog walk sounds great. It's so nice to socialise with other dogs and dog owners. Those ones are usually responsible ones as well.

Mel - sheesh, can these people ever be moved along? The cheque may be good but how good is it for you?? We can phone anytime during the week if you want. I have no appointments this week although I will have to go to M's place one day, but that's not crack of dawn stuff.

Laura - not sure of what shrubs you are pruning but I find it best to take about a third off the roses when I prune always trying to keep the bush to a sort of tulip shape so the air can move. The ficus out the front I take to with the chain saw. It can be cut off at the base and still grow back that one. My neighbour uses a hula hoop to keep them in a ball shape.

Ceejay - I am only the same height as Happy however my sister is much shorter so I am not the shortest one.

Time to go sort out the battle of the cats. It is too quiet around here. What are they up to. Worse than kids

Been outside most of the day. And yes I mowed my own lawn. It was really looking bad so I text B and told him I had the urge to mow. He said lol, ok. I hope I can keep this up as it's good exercise. It was actually nice out today as well. And I can't complain about it, cause I did it.

Shad
Ouch on the finger. Glad it's stopped bleeding.

Mel
Did the auditors get through today at work?

Annie
What a find on the zip locks bags full of money!

Happy
How late does the Thrift store stay open?

Laura
Di you go exercise today? Or just work outside.

Good evening all.

Ceejay - Good for you mowing the lawn. Yes, it's really good exercise. If the lawn was too long and bf has to bag it instead of just mulching it into the lawn, he's really tired out after having to empty the bag into the yard waste can again and again. I exercised today AND worked outside. And boy am I feeling it now!!

Shad - What an adventure with the kitten!! Your poor finger, and I hope you didn't traumatize the little guy for life by whatever you clipped when you were trying to harness him, lol. When Coal was a pup, bf once clipped his ear when he was putting on his collar. Ever since, Coal has a bit of a cower whenever we put on his collar - it's crazy to think that behavior is just from that one incident, but who knows? We've always been ultra careful ever since then...I think it's just the clicking sound when the two parts of the fastener come together that bugs him. I was pruning the purpleleaf plum, and I sure hope all the new growth at the base of it comes up nicely because I had to remove a lot of overgrown and mis-grown limbs. We'll see.

Happy - Hope your double shift at the shop went well today. Ugh, mosquitos! I'm glad we're not dealing with them yet, but I know all the rain we had will bring them on at some point. LOL re the chive blossom!

Mel - Cute photo today! I hope the audit is done and you get a chance to rest tomorrow! Have a good evening.

Annie - Too bad about your work buddy getting terminated, but when they want to do it, they find a way. Too funny finding all that change in your dad's closets. It'll be fun to see how much it all comes to, and a dinner out with family will be a nice way to spend it.

Michelle - Sounds like a busy weekend with both work and fun. Hope you got the necessary work completed. Did you go to the ballgame or the movies last night? Have fun with Santa at the fundraiser!
===

Bf went out to a friend's summer trailer yesterday and spent the day boating and stayed there overnight. I took doggy for a walk after work and then watched tv and read a book.

This morning was a Jazzercise class and I stopped and bought gas on the way home. I did a load of laundry and pruned the one shrub, then bf and I went to my eye doc to pick up my pair of trial lenses. It's not far from our favorite Middle Eastern food joint, so we stopped there for lunch afterwards.

Back at home, I finally planted the two string bean plants I bought, as well as planted three pots with geraniums. What a nice day to be outdoors! I have a lot more geraniums to plant in the spot right off the patio, but I'd had enough planting for the day and still had to walk doggy.

After walking doggy, I was totally pooped, so I sat down in the 3-season room and started reading a library book bf had just finished - Six Years by Harlan Coben. I like his books, so it should be good.

BF and I are going to watch the Hawks game tonight and order a pizza for dinner.

Nothing special planned for tomorrow, except some more laundry, more planting, more pruning, and some shrub trimming. At least the latter is more straightforward - shaping with an electric trimmer. Gosh, lots of outdoor stuff and I don't even know if the weather is forecast to cooperate with all that. We'll see.

Okay, gonna post this and do some stretching - my hamstrings are complaining!

It's back to work for me this morning. The weather man is predicting storms for later this afternoon. But one rolled through about 5 a.m.

Laura
It was nice here yesterday as well. I could have used an extra day off to finish everything. But I'll have more time next week end. I soaked in the tub last night and took a Mobic as my lower back was killing me. But that's okay. I feel good today and just a bit sore. Wished I like to read! My mower does well in mulching. But the grass was still a bit wet.

One of the acct's has the computer on. I asked if I could post here. It's our little secret. He let me do it the other day too.
They are almost done. It was a big audit and a lot of paperwork needs to be put away.

The "normal" part of my weekend has been busy since Friday night with alarms and people going to the hospital. They will never learn about going out in humid weather and excessive heat. One man told me on the way out...You were right and I shouldn't have gone out.....well buddy it's too late now. He got IVs and had to stay overnight. Sad. Even the accountants were surprised.

The work here with them is nothing physical...just sitting here while these 2 men put stuff away and sort out things for the next meeting this month. That was the big problem. Their vacation. Both are leaving next week and we have a meeting this month as usual. They have to get out an audit report and the usual monthly reports. That's why they made me the offer. Not much money but for sitting here it's OK by me.
The kids will be here from Florida and I would like to send them all to the county fair this Summer again.. The extra cash will be my treat. Nothing is cheap anymore.

OK I better not take advantage of the computer. I did read all the posts and am missing you guys. My life should be back to normal after I see the boss lady tomorrow. I have a ton to report.

I also want to thank everyone for the pictures. I loved all of them. it was nice to see Annie & Dad. I also loved the church Shad. It really was in a beautiful setting.


Laura....I cannot believe I got everyone crazy about your birthday a month ahead of time. I am laughing down here in the office. OMG!! Now watch me forget it next month!! ROFL 50% back? Not a bad deal on the WW thing.



Michelle......Congratulations on a new grand-nephew Ryan James!!! Too cute. Hope the Mom is feeling better after such a difficult birthing. Is it curves or ww & a gym???



Annie....sorry I wasn't here to give you hugs and hold your hand. That was too bad about the friend at work. Scary too. Sending you good thoughts for some much needed sleep.



Shad....Sophia is so adorable. Growing up already.
Hope the knee continues to heal. I wish I could smell all the roses over here. Better than the oldies here!!! OMG>>>>> how is the pinky finger?? Geez!!! That must have been terrible.



Happy....hope the bears stay away. If I was working at the store, my credit card would be maxed out!! LOL It's sad that the choice few get to run the real part of the store and no new ideas seem to be allowed. Hope your tongue isn't bleeding from all the biting!!! LOL



Ceejay....between your inspections and my auditors...we've had a busy time. When the boss spoke of retirement I thought of you. How nice to know where you will be and how it will be. It must be a comfort to you having the sister and plans made.

Sometimes I need to be reminded of the heat. Sorry you had the alarms this week end. Remind them to turn on the a.c. and stay inside.
We have one more tank inspection next week. I'm still tired from the last one. And yes it is nice to have plans in action for retirement.

Just lost a REALLY long post I'd been working on for the last hour. I don't care, I'm blaming the site for this

Very abbreviated post (probably good for all of you ) Yesterday was not as bad as I thought it would be at the store. By 4pm I needed to sit down already - was on my feet almost all the time since walking in the door. It was comfortably busy although my partner and I both agreed that it seemed like we did a lot more business than the till showed. Guess we just rang up a lot of sales in small amounts. I did the morning by myself - it wasn't horrid but I'd rather have someone else there too. Was talking to my former classmate who came in for the afternoon shift - she's a retired English teacher. Turns out my next door neighbor was one of her most favorite students! And 2 ladies came into the store Mum and daughter. Daughter was purchasing a set of linen napkins and a table cloth. Turns out they were visiting from Newcastle, NSW. I told them I had a friend who lived in Brisbane - they said we're just in Newcastle. Like it's just down the road. I guess in the spread out terrain that is Australia, New Castle is not far from Shad. I thought to myself that if I were visiting, not sure that I'd be shopping in thrift stores - while a nice set of linens, it was no Irish lace! The lady said she also bought 4 bottles of maple syrup to take home, not realizing just how much room and weight 4 heavy glass bottles of syrup would do to one's luggage. Reminded me of Shad's first trip when she picked up a very large ice hockey bag in Canada and toted that all over the U.S.

It looks like the popcorn shop is going to reopen - the way they indicated this on the front of the store tells me this is most likely under new owners. They are looking for help. I swear I had a fit of madness and considered it for a moment. Then I remembered how hard the work was and how little it paid. It was nice having the extra money but I decided I will just let DH be my "sugar daddy".

Mel - speaking of extra money, nice of you to donate your earnings to the county fair fund for the kids. Is this to give Jen a break and keep them occupied? Glad the accountants let you use the computer while you were sitting there waiting on them. Might as well do something besides sit there and sing happy songs to them in an effort to get them to finish their work quickly

Ceejay - good going on the lawn work. Certainly a great way to get some exercise and fresh air. Did you do all the sweeping and trimming too? To your question the shop is open 10 to 5 six days a week and 11 to 3pm on Sundays. I'm sure they wouldn't mind having it open later during the summer but it's hard to get people to commit to more than 4 hours once a week. Heck, everyone I met who works there is retired - but I guess they all have very busy lives. I laughed that they had to split the Sunday 4 hour shift into 2 shifts, everyone was complaining it ruined their Sundays and no one wanted to work. If I'm going to get dressed up and out of the house, I'd rather spend 4 hours than 2. 2 hours is a waste of gasoline!

Speaking of which - how much is gas in your respective areas? Ours went up to $4.29 a gallon over the holiday weekend - funny how it ALWAYS goes up around a travel holiday and comes back down the week after. It's $4.05 a gallon right now.

Shad - owwww on the cat snag. That was quite a wound - got you good it seems. Just the right spot at the right moment and they can sure knick you a good one! Our first cat would not take to a harness - acted like Annie's Sassy. But she tolerated a neck collar and long leash because she loved being outside. After a while DH would take her outside without it. I was always nervous about that because I know I can't outrun a cat and some of them make a game of running if they think you are chasing them. Nice of you to give him a taste of the great outdoors. Interesting point about using a hula hoop to shape the shrubs. Don't much have to worry about that here - we cut down the pompous grass each year, the deer make fast work of chewing the new shoots and blossoms on the flowering trees and the pine trees just need dead and low branches trimmed.

Annie - hope Dad's coins added up to a lot more than you thought and you all had a very nice family dinner.

Enjoy your beach walks Michelle.

Laura - umm pizza sounds good - you've got me having a taste for it now. I wonder if I can get DH to take me out again We did go out to dinner last night as I was not feeling like cooking after a long day. Did the Blackhawks win? Since you replanted your beans did you also get a fence to keep the bunnies out? I could probably send a fox or two down your way - they seem to have made fast work of the rabbits - haven't seen one here since last summer.

It's a rainy day today. Will be that way all day I think. Yesterday was nice and sunny. I think it's supposed to dry up and get warmer over the next week. That sure will be nice. I have to go harvest some of the lettuce and arugula out of my garden - a salad is in the works for dinner soon. Still need to get those herbs into pots - my dill is going to seed and the cilantro is not far behind. I will probably just plant some seeds for those 2 to restart. And I have some tidying up to do in the house.

Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

Hi ladies -

On Friday night, my date and I went to dinner and then to the movies. It was too hot to sit and watch a baseball game. We saw The Great Gatsby. I had not seen the original nor read the book, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I thought it was very, very good. Saturday, I went to a workshop where you use acupressure points to ease pain in your body. I'm going to practice this so hopefully it will help my back. Saturday afternoon, I got together with some friends for a BBQ. Good times! Today, I was going to take Santa on a fundraiser dog walk, but I woke up with a sore back and legs, so I think we'll be going to the dog park instead...less walking for me. Plus Santa will have more fun at the dog park because it will mean more off-leash play for him.

Before we go to the dog park, I'm going to do some vacuuming for my step-mom.

===================================
Annie - Sorry to hear about your friend at work. I hope you're able to get some sleep soon Have you tried ZzzzQuil?

Mel - I hope you're not working too hard. Take care of yourself, sista.

Happy - How come you're doing a double shift at the store? I thought being a volunteer you wouldn't have to sign up to work so much. Thanks for the tip about the chive flowers! Ugh! LOL So interesting that you had custoemrs from NSW! That would be madness for you to go back to the popcorn shop...where you practically were a volunteer. To answer your gas question...ours here went up over the holiday weekend, but it's back to around $4.09 for regular unleaded. I use mid-grade, which is about $4.19.

Ceejay - I had to laugh at your comment about being short compared to your cousin. On my dad's side, I have 5 cousins and the women are 5'10" and the men are well over 6'. My sister and I are right around 5'1" or 5'2" (on our tiptoes). Well done on the lawn mowing. It is great exercise.

Shad - Yikes! That's awful about the cat harness and your pinky! Is Miss Puss getting along with or avoiding her temporary house guest?

Laura - I hope the weather cooperates with your outdoor chores. It's really nice here today...though probably some will think it's cool (in the low 70s), I say that's perfect! I don't have to worry about my lil buddy Santa getting overly hot in his fur coat. LOL

I'd better sign off for now.

Much love and many hugs,

Hi guys....just not in the mood to do personals. Promise to get back to it later in the week. The coins turned out to be $642.02. Looks like we will all have a great night out with dinner. I did finally take a PM last night and slept from 10 pm till 5 am this morning, but had to get my sh*t hot as we had to make deliveries out to DSs house. He wanted the treadmill and bike. Also my old dresser. I took dad's dresser. It has been a very busy day. We used Cs work box truck to do it all. Got rid of a bag of trash, clothes etc out of my dresser in the process...C has been my rock and so sweet to me. Makes me want to cry, not used to the support. I only cry about dad/mom once a day. Some times for a few minutes, sometimes for an hour or two. Today just a few moments when I heard the song on the radio.."I can only imagine" Jolly crap, as MELLIE said.

That it is about it for me. Got a bit to do before relaxing.

Hugs

Morning all,
I've got a podiatrist appointment shortly - just a follow up - so quick post for me. I think we are FINALLY getting some warmer weather and a break in the rain. It's been wet and gloomy - my tomatoes are very spindly, sad and not a good color of green. If this keeps up I'll get nothing. On the other hand I do have some blossoms on my green beans but not the sugar snap peas yet. I have 1 nice yellow summer squash and 2 more babies are on their way on that plant. The carrots are thriving and I picked a bunch of arugula yesterday which DH had for his salad. Interesting how the home grown arugula has a much stronger flavor than the stuff you get in the packages at the store. My cucumbers are not looking too great either - I think they need a bit of warmth and dryer soil. Hopefully the weather this week will perk them up

I burnt my lips badly yesterday I made some salmon - pan fried. There is a French cooking technique that involves tipping the pan slightly, gathering the hot oil in a spoon and rapidly spooning that over the top of the fish to cook the top part while the pan cooks the bottom. I have used that technique before, it always makes the fish turn out just yummy. At one point I put the spoon into the salmon to check for doneness and went to go taste the salmon for seasoning. Did not realize how darn hot that spoon was and I burnt the bottom sides of my lips quite badly. They are a bit swollen and very tender - you can't tell when I have my mouth closed but if I push my lower lip out (as if to pout), it's pretty nasty. Since it's in my mouth, nothing much I can do to put anything on it, just have to let it run it's course. Dumb, dumb, dumb move on my part.

I only work tomorrow afternoon at the store, the rest of the week is mine. Good thing as I have lots to do. Right now I need to jump in the shower, will be back later with personals.

The gas prices in my city is $3.35/gallon, but in Jonesboro/Paragould area the prices will vary from $3.29 to $3.23. I can relate to the sore back and legs. I had that when I got through with the lawn. About made up my mind that as long as the mower runs I'm going to mow. And yes I did do the weed eating. I have a blower so that comes in handy for getting the grass etc off the sidewalks and drive way. The lawn mower mulches so that's a blessing in itself.

Annie
Wow, that was a lot of change. So glad that you have C to lean on right now. He's really been a good man.

Happy
Glad you had second thoughts on going back to the popcorn shop to work. But that would have been your decision. Meeting a variety of people would be interesting. I do love to people watch.

Mel
Maybe you should put out video's to watch of heat stroke and the like for the seniors.

Did you get the plants in the ground? I love to be outside.

Shad
How is your finger today?

-----------------
Had to watch the radar yesterday and run the plant accordingly. It rained hard for about 30 minutes. Thankfully no damaging winds or heavy lightening like they were predicting.
Had to call out a lineman yesterday and he didn't want to go because their was no major outages. Da that's what you get paid for. I had a little talk with him to and don't think he appreciated it. I told him to go knock on that person's door and he could tell him what was wrong. The person that called used to be a lineman for the city himself. OOOH he didn't like that. If he hadn't gone the second time I was calling his superior. And he doesn't want P. jumping on his case. These young punks who think they know it all. ugh
I told my super this morning in case any thing was said.

Morning all.

Happy - I hope your foot is feeling better and the pain is not a big problem anymore. I'm thankful I haven't had a recurrence of the plantar fasciaitis pain. My veggies aren't doing all that great - the tomato foliage is not a good color. The fresno pepper plant has some blooms - I don't seem to be have any issues growing those types of peppers. The string beans look alright - not sure what to expect since this is my first time growing them. Yeh, we sure do need some sun and warmth for our gardens! Yes, I put up the "anti-rabbit" fence shortly after the first bean plant was eaten and so far so good. Ouch re your burnt lips!!! I think it's time to switch back to a regular coffee mug - I just burnt my tongue sipping my tea out of the insulated/lidded mug I use during the cold weather. The tea doesn't cool as quickly in that mug and today I sure didn't have my timing right! Nice that the popcorn shop is re-opening, glad you won't be working there and giving your feet a hard time!!

Mel - Sorry your weekend was too eventful. I bet you're glad the boss is back and you can report to her and then get some rest. Have a quiet rest of the day. I like that sunny good morning graphic you posted!!

Annie - Wow, that was a lot of spare change! I'm so glad C has been such a good support during all this. You deserve a great guy and you have one!!

Michelle - I'm glad you enjoyed The Great Gatsby. You sound like you had a nice weekend. Did you and Santa get to the dog park yesterday? I take it these parks don't require permits?? The park we used to take Coal to required a fee/permit and proof of and shots, rabies, bordatella, whatever. We don't take him there anymore because he's not as predictable around other dogs anymore, and now with his hips, it might be too much for him anyway. What I really miss for him is swimming in the small lake they had there. I wish we could find a nice quiet lake not too far away where he could go for the occasional swim. I'll have to ask around.

Ceejay - Hope the inspection goes well this week. Did you end up with a lot of rain by you? My mom said they were getting a lot.
===
I spent most of yesterday being lazy, and then later I took doggy for a walk, did a load of laundry, and got all but two of my geraniums planted. I thought it was going to rain in the afternoon, but nope.

I didn't do any more pruning or trimming out front, but maybe I'll do a bit more after work this week before the garbage/yard waste pickup on Thursday.

No movie this week - our organizer is in Italy, lucky girl! I will likely go to Jazzercise on Mon. & Thurs. night this week.

My mom's sister in Tuscon, AZ passed away last week at age 84. Turns out she had many health problems that she never disclosed to anyone or did anything to address. She was a lifelong smoker and extrememly sedentary and was on oxygen due to emphysema. She told my mom more than once that her doctor always said something to the effect of "D, I don't know how you do it!" (in a positive way), and my mom learned from one of my cousins that she'd also said that to one of the neighbors as well. It was only when she'd become too thin that her daughter/granddaughters started joining her in the examining room during doctor's visits. unfortunately, I won't be at the recplex to run into my cousin between fitness classes to give her my face-to-face condolences, so I'll try to get in touch another way.

Okay, better get back to work. It still isn't doing itself, drats.

Ceejay, you snuck in on me today. I'm jealous, I paid $4.20 a gallon for my gas on Saturday! Of course we pay some of the highest prices here in IL. The whole state is going to he!! thanks to the crooked and incompetent people running things. It was more important for the legislature to pass a concealed carry gun law this past session than to deal with the elephant in the room - our massive pension debt problem. So now the state's credit rating has been been lowered. Ridiculous. Who in their right mind would choose IL to move their business to?? Okay, end of rant.

Crazy that you had to tell that lineman to do his job - what an idiot. I like your idea of Mel showing the seniors a video about heatstroke, etc. But then they might suffer anxiety attacks from the worry!!
