Jeanne - doesn't time fly? Dennis' Mom has been gone now 15 years. I can't even grasp that it has truly been that long!

Good Tuesday morning ladies. I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was pretty perfect. The weather was fantastic. Yesterday we went for a breakfast picnic in the park and then walked the park for an hour or so. We then drove across town for a car show in another park and walked all thru the park and car show. Then we dined on fudgie brownie banana splits at a mom and pop ice cream parlor. For dinner we went to a casino that had a good old fashioned BBQ and Canada Day entertainment. We gambled a little then came home, picked up Ben and went to our 3rd park of the day and saw a fireworks show. I don't think it could have been a more perfect day. But now that it's over I'll try to get back on the good eating track. Weigh in for the challenge end will be horrible, but at least I had fun while gaining this time and didn't stress myself out. It was truly a good time and no regrets.

Now in 2 days it's your country's party. I'm sure it is a big deal too for you guys. I hope you two have as much fun as I did on our country's bday.

Back to reality and work. Later ladies.

PS Monica....T is looking fantastic!

Michelle - you enjoyed your HOLIDAY, that is what is important. Jump back on today and all will be good!

Thanks girl! T is very pleased. He will truly need a bunch of new clothes come School time!

Today is my THURSDAY! so FRIDAY - EVE for me! Friends coming in Wednesday night. Last night I made my strawberry smoothie dessert. I think it will be awesome. I can't wait to try it, new recipe for me! Tonight, I think I will clean the floors. I want to hold off on cleaning the bathrooms till Wednesday evening. BOYS make such a mess in bathrooms and T's is the bathroom that guests use! SCARY!!!!!

Michelle-it is great hearing about your holiday! and you enjoyed it is the best part-no regrets is living life to the fullest-and now you can focus on what you need to do with a clean slate-love it!

Monica--yes boys and husbands are terrible in the bathroom--they never get any better do they??? I really thought it would improve with coaxing--but NOPE-my dad wasn't a bad aim and he is what I grew up with and expected all men to be like-he was neat and wanted things neat and clean-boy did I get a shock with Bill! and his barn!

headed out for errands--we still have rain forecast--no weeding again-the force is with me!

Thankfully, Dennis is NEAT too! I just have to deal with T and from what I gather, he isn't as bad as most.....still, bad enough!

Jeanne - anything definite get planned for July 4th?

Michelle - How are you today? Full on back on plan?

good morning gals--I don't have anything big planned for the holiday-the kids are all busy with their own lives and I think we might head to Louisville-there is a big FLEA market at the fair grounds-just simply something to do inside if it rains and something to get out instead of staying inside or working around the house-I want to find a part missing for my Hoosier cabinet-it is missing the flour bin and I have always wanted to find it to complete it--I just think a Hoosier should have a complete Hoosier cabinet? and my hall tree is missing the umbrella holders--I need those to complete it--I have no idea what they should look like but I want to look-I am trying do downsize and do have several antique pieces I want to sell-but I do want to complete those pieces!

we still have no part for the tractor--so I imagine Bill will borrow the company tractor again over the holiday to mow our yard-I hope he can at least-it will make the yard mowing fast--he did ask the price about the Kubota they have for sale and they have new ones with 0 percent interest right now he says-I didn't ask any more questions! I don't want to know!

cleaning house today-still need to weed but that urge had passed!

later tater

No I am not completely back on plan. I overate almonds yesterday to get me thru. But outside of that....much much better. I'll weigh in but it won't be pretty. How about the next challenge going to Labor day?

Jeanne--- I hope you get out to the flea market. That will be fun and different. It will spice things up. And hopefully it will be fruitful and you will find the pieces you need. The hunt can be fun too.

Ben went in to get his teeth cleaned. I have never had to do that with any of my other dogs before.They say it is common for small dogs. They did a blood test before the anesthetic (sp) as usual and have found a liver issue.They are only somewhat concerned and will give me something for him to take for two months and then retest. I am worried but hopeful that it is nothing to serious.

Well back to work for now. I can pick him up at 4PM and I want to make sure all my work is done before then.

Later girls.

Jeanne - enjoy whatever it is you all end up doing. I would rather do JUST ABOUT anything besides WEEDING! YUCK~

Michelle - hopefully they found the liver issue in time so the meds do the trick. If they aren't concerned, you shouldn't be either.

T got bit yesterday at work. Just a surface bite, it didn't break the skin. MUst have been a HUGE dog, it is on his lower thigh just above his knee....it will be a heck of a bruise though.

OM goodness-glad T is ok-hazard of the job but scary none the less-glad it didn't break the skin! that would make me a little fearful in the future!

Michelle-hopefully Ben is ok and they are just being proactive in their concern and it will be nothing serious-especially since they are waiting two months to recheck that is a positive thing--I have never had Dolly's teeth cleaned-my vet doesn't even offer it--we are such a small rural area-our health system is the pitts even for our pets!

we got our part for the tractor-266 dollars but it works and Bill is planning to mow today--woohoo--I will be glad-of course he came home and wanted me to go with him to look at tractors-I was dirty from cleaning-I actually was in the tub cleaning at the time--so I didn't go--he looked at new tractors--they want a small fortune of course-and he thinks we need one--hah

we will go to Louisville tomorrow-I am looking forward to it-I will get prepared today-we usually don't do things like this together--I already have had my lecture-no leaving him while he is looking at something and walking away--I apparently am bad at that--lol!!! I will have my phone on if we get separated!!

well ladies--I weigh 167 this morning--I will go back and see what I started the challenge at and report back--labor day works for me!

OK--I lost 7 lbs this challenge-not great but better than gaining...hopefully I will do better next challenge! I would like to get into the 150s next challenge!

HAPPY JULY 4TH! my American friends. I hope you are having a blast.

Monica-- How is T doing from his bite? I hope he is ok physically and emotionally.

Jeanne way to go on the loss. Seven lbs is such an accomplishment. Be proud of it, own it, and I know you will reach your next goal by Labor Day.

I forgot to weigh in this morning, so I'll do that tomorrow. I'm positive it won't be good. Boy is it hot here. it is 100 degrees today.

Just popped in to say hi. I hope you guys had fun on your holiday.

I woke up today with a terrible head cold. Do you guys know of a good decongestant? My head feels like it is going to explode! I really can't concentrate so before I say something stupid I'll sign off for now.

OH Michelle - I hope you are feeling better! I am a huge nyquil fan. Of coarse that is for nighttime. Dayquil is what I use for during the day. Unless it's sinus related, then I use Advil cold/sinus. How are you feeling now???

Our weekend was amazing. The canoeing on July 4th was awesome. Each one of us loved it, even DS14! He came to me yesterday and said, THANKS for the wonderful weekend MOM! that makes it all worth while.

Friday we did pedicures (all the girls) and the adult ladies went and saw The Heat. Danielle, you were right....HILARIOUS! Well worth seeing.

Saturday we did ceramics :yawn: not my thing. I sat and watched the kids decorate stuff. DS14 and his friend went and saw WHite House Down. He said it was amazing. I want to see it, but will probably wait for DVD!

Our friends left yesterday. SAD! Not sure when we will see them again. I will probably see them in the next few months. A dear friend that lives close to them (she is 101 later this month) isn't doing the best. I will go there for the funeral. Hoping she pulls out of it, but at 100+ years old, pnemonia is hard to rebound from.

Now to a full work week! I think it may all kill me. Our other friends are coming in later tonight. Not sure how long they will be staying. Time will tell!

Monica, so happy you had a good time with your friends. I hope your full week passes by quickly.
I am still sick. I tried the advil cold and sinus and nothing is budging. It doesn't help that we are busy at work and I can't take any time to myself to try and get better, but we really need the work so I'll have to put up with my pounding head.
Jeanne where are you? How was your weekend?

back when I can--canning has begun! grandkid duties have begun-other duties are calling-I am stressed

Monica--glad your holiday was great--enjoy the next crew!!

OH Michelle, sick in the summer is the worst!! Feel better girl. I am so happy things at work are busy for you, that part is great!

Jeanne - Don't stress too much! Dennis planted 3 tomato plans and a jalepeno and zuccini plant. His Tomato and Jalepeno plants are doing GREAT ! there are tons of green tomatoes and tons of peppers just about ready to pick. We will be eating up the tomatoes for sure!

Friends are here. Thankfully (did I say that outloud) they are only staying till Thursday. We could use the break. I also have a graveside service I need to attend Friday afternoon with the memorial service Saturday afternoon. I was stressing on how to fit it all in with our friends in town....now I don't have to fret that part. Now just to figure out the logistics of going to both. A dear friend from High Schools Dad died suddenly on 07/02. We are still very close. I want to be at both for her.

Jeanne---Just pace yourself and you will do fine. Don't stress the small stuff. Have fun with the grandkids.

Monica---Sorry to hear of your friends father. I'm glad your friends stay will not affect those funeral services.

I am still sick and now have picked up a stomach bug too. I have no choice but to go to work today, but I have no idea how productive I will be. I'll try and check in a little later.

hello girls-I finally found some cider vinegar this morning--walmart was out and two other stores-the joy of living in a small town-I should have been stocking up! poor planning on my part! had to run and get groceries for mom this morning too-she wasn't feeling able! have you guys tried those bright yellow honey DEWlicious melons--way too good--I had to have some -not good I know-so very sweet-we saved the seed-hopefully next year they will produce!! a delicious way to go over on carbs!

Monica-sorry about the friend's father-and you are handling the stress of fitting it all in way better than I would! I would be hiding in the bedroom by now!

Sorry about the additional stomach bug--you didn't need that for sure--hopefully you can come home early today and rest?

well-need to run and get some prep done for canning--not sure I will be able to do today after all-but at least some prep done like jars washed the the equipment ready-tomorrow I need to take Cassidy to run and pic her up also early and I think it is a day my friend and I are getting together--our plans were kind of left up in the air-I think she is taking all of my purging from the closets--so ready to get rid of them out of the bedroom!

gotta run

OH JEanne - you are getting rid of the stuff....how uplifting! I have never seen that DEWlicious, is it a brand? My children love honey dew and cantalope...me I don't like any melons of any kind.

Michelle - so sorry you aren't feeling good and to boot, now have the tummy bug! YUCK

Monica--you can't miss this melon--it is bright yellow and small like a honeydew-but the fruit inside is pale like a pear color is a the sweetest I have ever had--I hope the seeds we saved will grow next year-probably a one year seed? we just took the name off the little sticker on the melon itself--check walmart!

Well--I have had my vegetables brining-so it is almost time to rinse and I will be canning them in a little while-I just thought I better start-so the more I cut-the more it got bigger-and I will be glad to get it done today-I will have that off my list and ready for more canning this way! I hate to have stuff sitting on the counter!

dang its hot here--the humidity is like off the charts!

just got done canning 10 pints of relish--hope they all seal-one sealed so far-9 to go-this running back and forth to the barn to can and prep at the house takes it out of you when the weather is so hot! I like doing it all down there but I had all the produce up here at the house! anyway--that is done and I am headed to an early shower--good thing there is leftovers for dinner tonite!! Bill is working late so I am on my own for awhile!

Forgot to say--Cassidy made the ALL-Area team for Track!! so proud--she is running with a tendon injury too-has to be hard!!

Way to CASSIDY! How amazing is that???

Canning, that is something I hope to never ever do! It's a dying art, isn't it???

It's Wednesday. We are heading to Worlds of Fun for the softball worlds series opening ceremonies after work today. Haven will be there all day long with our sitter. It is HOT, horribly HOT! I hope they do ok. Haven has games tomorrow, so she really needs to preserve her energy.

yes it is hot!!! and humid--hope Haven stays safe with this weather--you guys too--it isn't fit for man nor beast out there! it is raining north of us but just making it more humid here! supposed to be cooler tomorrow--hopefully you are getting it also!

Canning will never be a dying art! silly woman--you are just too busy to do it--I try to live as cheaply as I can and this is part of it--plus there is tremendous satisfaction when done--those 9 pints yesterday took me most of the day to do-pick, process and put up--but it was one way for me to have relish that I like-sugarfree plus use the produce out of our garden too--today I am making a garden lasagna--just to use up stuff I picked this morning-I am just winging the recipe-hope it turns out! Bill is good about eating whatever I throw at him!

I already chopped the zucchini and peppers and they are draining--hope it works! tomorrow I have to mow! way too hot today!

Michelle--I have been meaning to ask--how did Ben turn out with his lab work and his liver enzymes--have they been rechecked or any new developments?

I keep seeing that lifestyle lift--do you think it would work on my jowls!!! everything has dropped including my face-when you are heavy and then lose-everything drops and gets wrinkled! especially when you are old and there is no chance of toning--make sure you never lose weight when you are old-do it now while you are young girls! it's not pretty! and being a stomach sleeper doesn't help either! how do you stop something you have done all your life--my son Chris is the same way!
