Steel Magnolias — #60
Good Morning! The sun was out early this morning but has disappeared now. Rain is in the forecast for today and tomorrow both. I have sheets in the washer and went to church to count money. Our excitement yesterday was to purchase our cemetery plot in Sioux City! We have talked about doing that for several years and finally did it. We can have the above ground marker and it's in a sunny spot so I will always be warm when the sun shines! :D Now to work on the marker! We thought maybe we would be back in church tomorrow but guess not. Haven't heard the official word on June yet.
I need to dust and vacuum sometime today so better keep moving. Hope you enjoy your day! :wave:

Good morning! Beautiful sunny day today and hot temps starting tomorrow. I rearranged boxed, baking, etc supplies, did a load of laundry, and am going upstairs and clean in just a bit. I am fixing smoked pork chops and scalloped potatoes with fresh tomatoes for dinner.

My hair looks great, but the salon was so sad. She lost 7 stylists, cost her $3000 to get the salon the way the state, county, city and cdc regs required. There were 4 employees and 4 customers. The place is usually hopping. I hope she can recover. She let all the stylists that didn’t want to come back out of their contracts. She is a great lady and I feel so sorry for her.

They are finally letting guys take vacation so Jack is taking 3 days over a weekend. He really needs time off poor guy. We still have trip plans for Atlanta over Labor Day. We’re going to the aquarium and the Coca-Cola museum and maybe a bit of shopping. :lol:

Jean: Sometimes you feel like George Orwell’s book. I think you should adopt the one eyed tabby. He was cute. I got a belly laugh about your fun trip to pick cemetery plots. It is finally getting into summer temps. I need to go to the nail salon, but not ready to face that craziness yet. I do need to make a waxing appt and soon.

Everyone have a nice Sunday.

Good Afternoon! The sun was out this morning, then the clouds rolled in for most of the afternoon, and now the sun is back out. Crazy weather continues! We are supposed to hit 90 tomorrow! :dizzy: I have been very lazy today! We went to church online in Sioux City, still haven't heard if our church will open in June or not. Bob offered to cook dinner which meant chicken dinners at a dine-in restaurant. Mashed potatoes and gravy, yum! :T We went early and were the only ones there but watched a steady line of drive through vehicles. This afternoon I washed Bob's garage towels and took a nap. I didn't think I was tired but guess I was. We have not had any update on the local virus numbers but I'm sure they are rising. The second plant hasn't been tested yet. :mad:

”Gma,” what happened to the stylists who didn’t come back to your salon? That is too bad for the owner. Bob had a dentist appointment and she told him they had virtual training they had to pass in order to open again. She can’t use water and air suction in fear of spreading germs/virus critters. It takes extra time to sanitize between patients so they had to rearrange all of their missed appointments to allow for that. Glad Jack will get his vacation days back! A trip to Atlanta sounds like fun, something to look forward to! :D If I didn’t have “special needs” Ernie I would consider another cat. The problem with that cat is his long fur. The funniest part of our cemetery visit was a tombstone we happened to drive by and I noticed the name. When Bob was in Vietnam, I graduated from college, did my student teaching, and started my first teaching job. One of his best friends was in the activated army guard and sent to Colorado so his wife and I spent a lot of time together. My apartment was the upstairs of an older house owned by a retired teacher who took care of a disabled sister. When Kathy would come over or we would leave together the landlady was always, and I mean always, peeking out through her closed drapes! We got so we would wave at her and she would slam her peek hole shut! :lol: The tombstone I spotted was her’s, and I assume her two sisters! I moved to a house before Bob got home again but he has heard the stories about her. I want to stop and read it next time we are there. This is a huge cemetery, kind of hilly, and a lot of people walk the different roads. Lots of decorations out for Memorial Day and it was so pretty.

Bob just asked if we were having supper so guess I will dig out some leftovers if he asks again. Hope you all enjoy a nice evening! :wave:

ceejay52 05-31-2020 09:08 PM

Starting yet another adventure tomorrow. "Babysitting" my 36 year old nephew to try and keep him sober. I told sis one screw up and I'm gone. And the one thing I'm afraid of is that he will leave at 6.30 in the morning and come back to sleep it off on the couch. I could kick myself for volunteering for this. I'm getting very depressed.
I also told my sis that I'm not selling nephew my vehicle. Simply because he wreck my bil's vehicle the night bil lay dying and before that he had wreck his own vehicle. He can't stay sober. He's not getting that privilege from me.
On the other hand, it's been a beautiful day. The sun has been out and the birds have been singing.
I've got to wash a load of clothes so I can take them to my nephews to spend the week. At least sis is coming on the week end.
I'm getting the oil changed tomorrow afternoon.
Hopefully I will survive.
We still haven't heard about our church reopening either.

Jean 06-01-2020 07:41 PM

Good Afternoon! It is 91 and 25+ mph winds blowing as I type. I am NOT complaining about the hot! This morning I went to get my nails filled after I did a quick trip through with the vacuum. Dusting is a waste of time with this wind today. This afternoon I did some laundry and sorted a box of clothes for the Good Will. Bob had an online board (zoom?) meeting for the nursing home. None of the residents have the virus but ten employees tested positive. All are part of a packing plant family. :eek: One got fired because other employees saw her at WM without a mask after they were explicitly told to not go out in public without a mask.

Ceejay, good luck with your nephew! I hope he cooperates and doesn’t give you any trouble. :crossed: No church news yet, but guess there will be baseball. I happened to see that on FB, no personal message from dil. :rolleyes:

Bob is home so guess it is time for food . . . . . again. Hope you all enjoy a nice evening! :wave:

ceejay52 06-02-2020 08:13 PM

So far so good with the nephew. He's been working both Monday and today. Except today there were issues from his work computer.
We went out and watered the flowers at sissy's house
I have company at the computer. The cat named Littlefoot is keeping me company.
This morning I cleaned the kitchen and cooked breakfast. His was eggs and bacon and my was oatmeal and yogurt.
Need to run the dishwasher.
Also cleaned out my car and washed it.

I got an email yesterday that stated we are starting church back on Sunday. But it will be social distance in the sanctuary. Not loitering after services until we get outside. It got to 85 here this afternoon. So far it feels good to be back home. Just hope it continues this way.

Hello's to gma and Susan.

Jean 06-02-2020 08:43 PM

Good Evening! We hit 95 today and the humidity shot up so the air is on. Guess maybe it is time to take the electric blanket off the bed! :lol: Beth came over early this morning to go fishing with Bob. They had a nice boat ride but neither one even had a bite. It seems like the fishing is good at times and then nothing. I went through a pile of paperback books to donate to Beth and what she didn’t take goes to the library.

Ceejay, I’m glad the plan is working with your nephew. I like your nephew’s breakfast menu better than yours. Oatmeal goes in cookies! ;) We still haven’t heard anything about returning to church and I am surprised. I thought we would at least we would know one way or the other by June 1st. We usually have a pot luck or a “good bye” coffee when a pastor leaves. Ours is leaving July 1st and I’m wondering if we will be able to do anything.

It’s time for ice cream and strawberries, Bob is cooking! :T Enjoy the rest of your evening! :wave:

Jean 06-04-2020 05:33 PM

Good Afternoon! It's a sunny, more humid day today and my air conditioner is humming along keeping the house cool. My college roommate has been trying to do a FaceTime chat and the first time I didn't realize what it was and dumped her. Then somehow she got Bob's number and called him. He knows less about FT than I do and got all flustered. Beth ended up talking to her on his phone while I was going to the vet for Ernie food. She and I have been playing phone tag ever since. I went for a much needed pedicure this morning; I finally decided sandal time was really here. Bob offered lunch down by the lake so I didn't have to cook. What a nice guy! I am washing clothes that have been packed away and are heading to the Good Will store. I am mad at myself for not keeping up with that over the years. Not much newsy from Iowa today; our COVID 19 numbers continue to rise. :( Hope you are having a terrific Thursday! :wave:

ceejay52 06-05-2020 10:41 AM

I'm back home for the day. I'm going to try and mow this afternoon if it doesn't rain. Springfield had some wind damage yesterday morning when some straight line winds came through before the thunderstorm. The wind laid down around 13 utility poles all in a row.

Nephew did great. He's found a girlfriend. I got tickled at him . He stated that he could not stay out till midnight and go to work the next day. I started singing the old song that says you are to old to cut the mustard. He laughed. They went to dinner last night and he sent her home by 9. There is a 10 year age gap. She's 26.

I'm not up on the FT and What's app. My sis that live in Georgia would like to do more of that but I'm going to have to learn how. Nephew and his kids do it on a nightly basis.

Need to get some laundry started. I want to get outside around 11 if not raining.


Jean 06-05-2020 04:59 PM

Good Afternoon! The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and it's a beautiful day in my neighborhood! We had lightning, wind, rain, and hail during the night but other than a few leaves down we had no damage. I slept through it but Bob was up a couple times to check water build up on the patio. When it rains very hard for very long we get the run off from the houses behind us. One time it flooded the lower level bedroom and bathroom. Bob was expecting hail damage phone calls at work, but had none when he came home for lunch. I had sent a sympathy card to our niece in Arizona on May 8th and got it back yesterday "unable to forward." The zip code was one number off, bil's mistake not mine. So I made a trip to the post office this morning and then the hospital to pick up money from the gift shop sale. After lunch I deposited that money then headed to the vet's office to return seven cans of cat food! I asked for three cans and got ten. :rolleyes: At $2 a can I'm not going to keep the excess when he only gets a tablespoon a day. The date on the cans was May, 2020. The dry food is expensive too. I just printed off the bank statement for the gift shop so need to balance that.

Ceejay, the cable company we have now, gives weather warnings from east of us. Our weather comes from the west! All last evening the tv would mute the show we were watching and run the warning three separate times, then again fifteen minutes later. It was so annoying! We have had the straight line winds a few times and they are scary! Glad your nephew has had a good week! Hope it continues. :yes: Do you have the same plan for next week?

I need to get busy and balance the checkbook! Hope you are enjoying a sunny day where you live and doing something you enjoy! :wave:

ceejay52 06-06-2020 01:23 PM

Sis has gone into Battlefield to get nephew and then to Nixa to get the children. I'm doing laundry.
It's going to be hot this afternoon. High in the 90's with heat index of 100. Guess summer is here.
Think I have an ear infection. I'm going to call the doctor's office in the morning to see if I can get an appointment this week, Hopefully tomorrow.

I really hope that I do not have to stay with nephew this week. It takes a hunk out of my chore time and I get behind.

Jean 06-08-2020 08:33 PM

Good Evening! It's been another hot and very windy day in my neighborhood. June is marching right along, hard to believe. Ian will be playing baseball but haven't seen any spectator rules yet. Locally the bleachers are off limits so bring your own chairs and no concession stand. I feel like I spent the day spinning my wheels and accomplishing nothing except to wash a load of towels, dried them, and put them away. :rolleyes: I am not making much progress on getting bedrooms cleaned out! :(

Ceejay, I hope your ear is feeling better! :yes: Earaches are not fun! Do you have to spend the week with your nephew again?

Not much is newsy from here. Hope you have had a good day today. :wave:

ceejay52 06-09-2020 10:58 AM

It was hot yesterday but I did weed eat some. Still like a little on the East side of the house.
I'm going to the grocery store in a few minutes.
This morning there is a breeze but I haven't been outside. I need to go for a walk and may later on.
Sis ordered an outside umbrella for the patio and it came yesterday. It's a beautiful teal blue. We put it up but with the storm coming in we took it down. The base of this thing weighs 60 pounds.
We had rain last night from the tropical storm and may have thunderstorms later on today.

My ear is a lot better. Think I had fluid behind my ear drum. I took some Claritin and that cleared things up.
Things are going to be different for awhile.
Our church met Sunday but we didn't go. We had nephew A and his three kiddo's and we were suppose to wear a mask. Getting the kids to wear a mask would not have been easy specially the baby.

Jean 06-09-2020 12:28 PM

Good Morning! It's cloudy and cooler here this morning, looks like it might rain which the weatherman also hinted it might. The wind was supposed to blow again today but so far has been pretty calm. The last three days were windy enough to last for a long time! I've been outside to pick dead blossoms off my plants, they could use some water but will wait to see if it rains. The tiny flies (?) have found the oriole feeder and there is probably a good inch of drowned bodies at the top. The orioles keep coming so must still get juice. They don't like the new feeder which appears to be bug proof. I made tuna salad for lunch sandwiches and have a few dishes to wash. I found a couple rusty spots on the dishwasher rack so have been dabbing the fix-it goop on them.

Ceejay, does your new umbrella fit in a table? They don’t get along with the wind very well. ;) We are still having church online. The one we have been watching announced masks will be required when they open their church again. I don’t think I can stand a mask for an hour. Our pastor leaves June 30th and has asked people to visit him at the parsonage back yard. “Bring your own lawn chair, food, and drink for yourself but nothing to share.” There are nine different days to choose from, all at 7:00 pm. I suppose since Bob was official lay leader when he came, and I “work” in the office we should go. Maybe it will rain. :crossed: I am wondering who will be “in charge” until our new pastor comes the end of August. He has a prior commitment and can’t come with the regular change and moving of pastors.

I need to do some serious dusting and vacuuming so better get at it. Have a terrific Tuesday and enjoy! :wave:

gma22 06-09-2020 09:56 PM

Good evening. I have not fallen off the truck just been dealing with my gastro issues so much haven’t felt up to doing anything. We’ve had a lot of rain again, but Jack was able to get out and whack weeds and spray weed killer. The neighbors have weeds as tall as the 6 ft privacy fence so Jack is going to have to contact the condo manager again. I sometimes think that’s why our weeds get bad is because neither neighbor will put any effort into killing theirs. The other side is just as bad.

I haven’t been back out since my hair apt because I just didn’t trust my gut not to cause me trouble. Jack is taking Thursday through the following Tues off so we are cleaning the fridge completely, shampooing rugs, trying out the commissary again, etc. He said he didn’t mind the honey do chores because at least he wasn’t at work.

I cleaned the kitchen today and will sweep and mop tomorrow than upstairs and dust. I am leaving vacuuming until the day we do the carpet cleaning.

Jean: No idea what the stylists that left did. They were going to run into the same issues with any salon because they all have to follow the same rules. No one opened earlier than anyone else so changing salons wasn’t going to get them back to work any faster. She’s a great boss and they can make great money so I think they’re fools but what do I know? Geez, what the heck were the dentists doing with emergency patients, telling them to suffer? I understand caution, but criminy. We had chicken tonight.

CeeJay: You are a great aunt to try again. Hopefully, you were able to go back to church and enjoy it. Glad your ear is better. I think earaches and toothaches are the worst. They seem to make your whole head hurt.

Everyone have a good evening.

ceejay52 06-10-2020 10:18 AM

It's windy today and cool. High today of only 73. It's misting rain.
It seems I'm out of my realm today, what ever that realm may be. Think I'm just in a don't care mood.
I went to the grocery store yesterday and that was about it.
Today I'm going to find a routine and stick to it.

The umbrella does fit into the table.

Sorry to hear that you've been having gut issues again. Feel better soon.

Jean 06-10-2020 05:55 PM

Good Afternoon! It's another very windy day but the sun is shining and no rain. We got over 2" last night along with wind warnings of up to 70 mph. Bob moved all my deck flowers and the patio chairs into the garage. This morning we got up to some smaller twiggy branches and lots of leaves down. I braved the grocery store this morning and prices have gone up again. I don't know how families with growing kids can afford just the basics. We do have a lot of "free" food available and the parade of cars is long every time. I saw on FB where the Iowa State Fair has been cancelled and there are some irate comments. The last time we went Beth's group danced in the talent competition and she was around 11/12. It was so hot, they danced, and we left! This afternoon I addressed several church birthday cards, dusted another round of picture frames, and called it good!

”Gma,” I hope you are feeling better by now! It’s too bad a doctor can’t figure out the “why” and a “fix it” for you. I think the specialist dentists, like the root canal dentist Bob saw in Sioux City, took patients in an emergency, mainly being in a lot of pain or accident type situation. He could have had the tooth pulled over there, but by then he wasn’t in pain and they come here so decided to wait. Regular check-ups with the local dentist were all rescheduled. Her husband has some health issues so I’m sure she is extra cautious during the pandemic. We need to shampoo the area rugs again. Bob does it for me but he has to be in the mood. :lol: He likes to walk around in his socks but I’m the one who is bad about shoes.

Ceejay, I left the house and had about twelve drops of rain on my way to the store. It never did actually rain, we don’t need any more right now! I hope you are back in your realm this afternoon. :D

I have dishes to put away and then unload the dishwasher. Not sure what's on tap for supper, maybe Bob will offer take out. Enjoy the rest of your day! :wave:

ceejay52 06-11-2020 10:29 AM

You made me smile when you mentioned 12 drops of rain. Mother's number was 13 drops. I'm going to clean the kitchen and living room this morning and then mow this afternoon. I also need to go to DG for a few things.

Hello to gma. :wave:

My life has been dull these past few days but I'm going to spend Saturday night with my nephew and the children. The news has been full of the riots and protesters. Therefore, I try not to watch that. It makes me sad too.
The sun is shining this morning which makes me happy. Think all this rain has made me sad and depressed.
I'm officially down 10 pounds. I'm happy. It's taken me a while to get into a good routine but I'm finally here.
I made some soup last night which had green beans, carrots, and tomatoes in it plus beef and potatoes plus seasoning. It was good.

Jean 06-11-2020 05:55 PM

Good Afternoon! The sun is shining and not quite as windy as yesterday. I've done some laundry and pitched a bunch of recipes I printed from years ago when we got out first computer. I never made any of them so pitched the whole pile without even looking at them. I need to do more pitching without looking but I'm afraid I might pitch something important.

Ceejay, every once in awhile I will remember something my mom would say. Good memories! :congrat: on losing 10#s! :cheer: You are doing great! The last couple days have been soup kind of days here. Your’s sounds delicious! I noticed the grocery store still doesn’t have many choices of Campbell soup. :( I’ve want the oriental flavor of Ramen noodles for a salad and haven’t found that either. There is every other flavor imaginable though. This is when I wish we lived in a larger town/city with more shopping choices. A weekend with the kids will be fun! I hope you have nice weather.

I need to think about something for supper. We have gotten into the habit of cheese, meat, and crackers, popcorn, etc. Not a good habit for the waistline. Enjoy a nice evening! :wave:

ceejay52 06-12-2020 11:41 AM

I did cut the grass yesterday but need to weed eat on the East side of the house. I also watered sissy's flower garden.
I'd bought a new 50 foot water hose yesterday but it's too short. :sigh:
This morning I'm doing laundry and cleaning the living room. I cleaned the kitchen last night before I went to bed. I still need to "swiffer" the floors.

I decided that since I don't have much space here at sissy's I'm going to start going through my clothes and boxes of stuff that I thought I wanted but really do not need. All I need are my clothes and my favorite DVD's. I'd like to get my key board out here soon.

Jean 06-12-2020 04:29 PM

Good Afternoon! The sun is shining and there is no wind today! It is warming up again, for the next few days, but just bouncing around the 80s which is delightful. I spent the morning doing more laundry and making a potato salad. I forgot to take meat out of the freezer so opted for BLTs for lunch. I am a messy cook! It seems like I manage to get every bowl, pan, plate, spoon, etc., dirty when I make something. Have the kitchen cleaned up again and seriously thought about making a rhubarb "something" yet this afternoon. I have to go pick the rhubarb first so maybe later.

Ceejay, I have found things I forgot I had when I am looking for something. It is fun to reminisce! My dad loved puzzles and had lots of them given as gifts over the years. Of course they all came to our house after my dad died. Bob took some to the retirement home but he found another box in the storage area above the garage. Kolby likes puzzles too, so took the box to him assuming it was all puzzles. Beth called and there were three dolls in the box. One poor doll is kind of creepy. Her body is hard (no clothes) but covered in cloth while the head, hands and feet seem to be some sort of ceramic Porcelain material. The head is all cracked and she looks like she has a disease of some sort. :lol: Another is a tiny baby doll with a crocheted bonnet and dress. Both belonged to my mother. The last doll was mine, made by my grandmother when I was a year old. It is a two headed doll (no legs); one is has brown hair, brown eyes, and a red dress, flip her skirt and the other doll has yellow hair, blue eyes, and a blue dress. I loved the brown haired doll, her dress is in shreds, and her stuffing is coming out along the seams. The other doll and dress are in perfect condition! When Beth was beyond the doll stage my mom happened to find a pattern for the same doll and started to make another doll for me. It was all done except for the yarn hair when my mom died and my neighbor graciously offered to finish it. I can’t part with the dolls just yet! I read somewhere to take photos rather than hanging on to an item.

Hope you are enjoying a nice day where you live and doing something you enjoy! :wave:

Jean 06-14-2020 12:05 PM

Good Morning! It is sunny but very windy in my neighborhood this morning. We have been to church online, had breakfast, and a load of laundry is in the dryer. The online church said no in person service for at least two more weeks. Since we are locally the hot spot in the nation, I doubt we will be back together any time soon. :( Plan for the day is another bag for the Good Will! I will find the bottom of my piles yet! :yes: I made a rhubarb crisp yesterday so that will be part of leftovers for lunch. It was a recipe I found on FB and turned out delicious! Wish there was more rhubarb but think this is it for this year.

I need to scoop Ernie's potty box and check the dryer. Hope everyone has a super Sunday! :wave:

ceejay52 06-15-2020 10:18 AM

Proud of you for the continuing decluttering. I need to do the same thing.

We kept the nephew and his children this week end. Oh that baby is so sweet, except for Saturday night when she had a tummy ache. I didn't sleep well that night.
I will be glad when they will be able to spend time at his house. But right now this is how it is according to the divorce decree.
I have a dentist appointment this afternoon in Branson so I'll spend the night with sis. and come back tomorrow. I'll be watering the flowers and veggie garden this week.

ceejay52 06-15-2020 10:24 PM

On the tablet
I came to Branson this afternoon for a dental appointment only to find out it had been canceled. I'm spending the night at the condo with sis. I m going back in the morning to take nephew to his office for a key card for his computer.
Nothing new.

ceejay52 06-16-2020 01:03 PM

Yesterday the dentist office rescheduled me for 9 in the morning and I called this morning and told them I had a conflict with that date so I have the 29th at 2 pm. which is better for me.
Came home and the pasture next door is filling up with those big round hay bails. I love this area.
I watered sissy's newly planted tomatoes and squash yesterday and today they look amazing.
I'm going to get out later this afternoon and dead head some roses. and water again.
Everyone have a great day

Jean 06-16-2020 01:39 PM

Good Afternoon! The sun is shining and it's getting hotter as the day goes along. I went to the grocery store early, mainly for some fresh fruit. We haven't seen a decent strawberry yet. I buy cantaloupe and watermelon that has been cut so I can see what it looks like inside. Some have been good and some not so good. I've washed another load of laundry and need to get it in the dryer. Tonight is our backyard goodbye visit at the pastor's house. I saw the list of people who will be there when we counted money so we won't be the only ones. I won't last long because we are supposed to wear masks and mine drives me nuts after two minutes! Our Wal Mart is closing at 2:00 today! No reason why, nor for how long, but maybe they are going to disinfect the joint. . . . .it's about time! Our positive virus numbers are still going up. A former student asked to be FB friends and I accepted. She came to the special ed. study hall for extra help on assignments, not the brightest student but lives on her own and works in the grocery store bakery. I think she got talked into something involving a money scam and she invited me to join. All I have to do is send this guy a request and he will give me $100,000 free! I tried to convince her nothing is free and asked if she was getting money from him for referring people. She said no and it is legitimate. I told her to let me know when she gets her money and can retire. She kept bugging me and I finally told her to quit as I wasn't interested.

Ceejay, I can sneeze just reading about the big round hay bales. Barns I and I don’t do well together. :no: I am confused, you have talked about a house then a condo. Does your sister live in one or the other? Your nephew is in your house, right? It’s nice you get to spend time with the children. It’s too bad your dentist didn’t let you know about your cancelled appointment but glad it is rescheduled. I think a lot of that had to be done with things being closed down. My flowers are dry with all out wind. We water them in the evening when the sun is starting to go down behind trees and they are in the shade.

Bob is home for lunch so better get moving. Enjoy the rest of your day! :wave:

ceejay52 06-16-2020 06:01 PM

Sis has a house and the condo. She lives in Branson during the while she works. and home on the week ends. She also owns the house that I lived in and nephew lives in now.
I also like to water near the end of the day.
I've been lazy this afternoon. I back in that weird mood feeling. Don't like it.

ceejay52 06-18-2020 09:36 AM

Checking in. to say hello. nothing new.

Jean 06-19-2020 04:57 PM

Good Afternoon! It's cloudy and much cooler today. We got 1 1/2" of hard rain last night. My flowers really took a beating. This morning I went to the grocery store to pick up a couple things I forgot on my last trip there. It's a good thing we live close to town! I've done a couple loads of laundry and am trying to talk myself into dusting and vacuuming. Then again may do that tomorrow if we don't go to Ian's afternoon game. I have to brag because he hit three home runs the other night and made it home on his last hit. He's not been a consistent hitter so we were thrilled for him! I didn't know this but the home run ball goes to the kid if he wants it. There were two other home runs so it was a fun game in that respect.

Ceejay, now I understand the house and condo situation. As long as you know where you are going all is right in your world. :lol: ;) I hate “that” feeling too. Hope you are feeling better today.

The dryer should be done so I can pair up Bob's socks and put them away. The kitchen is cleaned up from lunch so I'm hoping either a sandwich out or popcorn for tonight. Maybe Bob will offer to cook. Enjoy the rest of the day and do something your enjoy! :wave:

Happy Sunday! The sun is shining and the afternoon is warming up after a cool cloudy morning. Rain is predicted for late afternoon but there is not a cloud in sight right now. I always thought the 21st was the first day of summer. According to Mr. Google, summer began on Saturday the 20th and will be official on Monday the 22nd. I'll stick with the 21st. We counted money at church yesterday and after I couldn't get my "new" computer to cooperate, I ended up on the secretary's computer which always seems to work just fine. After lunch we took off for Ian's game which was iffy because of the weather. It had rained all morning there but the sun came out so the game was on after being delayed an hour. We were told the bleachers would be closed but we normally take our own chairs. It was their first home game so there was a pretty good crowd and people ignored the bleachers closed sign and sat there any way. Ian had some good hits but no home runs this time. They had played this team in a practice game a couple weeks ago and got beat big time. Yesterday they turned the tables and won; it was a fun game. I'm so glad the kids get to play this summer! There are three games next week but think we will go to just one. It's times like this I wish we lived closer but glad we can go when we can. Today we went to church online first, then Bob shampooed rugs after I vacuumed. While he did that I dusted some things that haven't been dusted in a very long time. I am :o :o :o !!! Now he's out mowing and I've cleaned up the kitchen. I told him he was like the energizer bunny today. Ha ha! Not much else is newsy from here. Hope you are enjoying a nice day and doing something fun! :wave:

Yeah for Ian. Always fun to watch a good game.

Yesterday was not a good day for me but feeling much better.. Had a bout of depression and a very sore Sacroiliac joint in my left hip. Must of upset the whole house yesterday. They never seen me this sick. I've tried to call the dr's office but they have not answered the phone. The earliest appointment I can get is on July 7 and last year he took the week of July 4th off so I didn't opt to choose a date. If it's not better I'll got to urgent care tomorrow.
They brought in some more hay bails but this time put them closer to the fence.
It's about time to eat. Think I'll have some left over spaghetti.
