Morning geez, Tru and BB

34 here this morning. For sure it will go to at least 32 tonight :/ BB and Geez I know that's not cold to you but I moved all the tender plants into the garage last night and will move them to sunporch today when in all probability it will freeze tonight. I was supposed to get them in the ground yesterday but the weather was so unpredictable I moved it to later this week and glad I did!

BB I'm sorry about your friend. Have so many that have and are still going through breast cancer treatment. I am happy to say that most have been very successful at least to the 5 year mark!

Tru that's a real score! I donated an unbelievable amount of cookware, storage containers and bakeware to goodwill from the Florida house. Fortunately I kept some but have had to buy replacements for several things that for sure I donated not one but at least 2-3 of :/

Good evening! Well, sort of -- yes, it's actually a mess. At least we had a lovely weekend when our guests were here. I'm pretty sure they only want to visit in warm weather because he smokes (yuck!) and knows he has to do it outside here. And now we are indeed getting dumped on . . . .

We also found out on Fri that my friend who was visiting got a questionable result on her just-finished mammogram, and had even worse news on the biopsy. So I'm waiting to hear what will happen next - fingers crossed.

Holy crap, it's mid winter all over again here! the snow is coming down heavy and blowing sideways. Because it was 66 earlier today, it's stuck to the side of buildings and at least two inches on the ground. It's like awakening from a bad dream and finding out it's not a dream.

Morning;
We seem to have gotten into a rut temperature wise. 70's for the foreseeable future. Fog every morning. The artichoke loves it. I don't.
People throw away the strangest things. l saw a lady taking some bowls and baking dishes to dumpster, so l went out to look. 2 lovely cut glass design plastic bowls and 2 13X9 baking dishes. l grabbed them all. In my dishwasher now. Pyrex baking dishes worth $10 each.

Morning Claudie, geez, M6 and Tru

Claudie I'm so glad the rain hasn't started yet! Going to ride Bandi this morning while the girl that rides Monty is going to jump some of our cross country fences. I've been with her when she was jumping some of the smaller ones but apparently she's doing bigger and bigger. She loves to jump and so apparently does he but they both have to work on their flat work because that's what I will eventually be doing with him :-)

Geez I've been in shorts the last few days and I forget about my very newest war wound. That's good I guess. If someone asks I tell them I'll match in a little more than a month lol

M6 I saw the last 3 minutes. I usually love watching the Masters but just wasn't home much yesterday to watch tv.

Tru you're not the only one that cleans up before the housekeeper gets there! I think most women do. I had someone come and help me with the baseboards, floors and just general heavy cleaning right after I moved in. I'm thinking about having her back before the second surgery to do the same thing all over again. Is your program a medicare one?

Good morning, jan,

This morning I'm going to the nail salon to get a pedicure. After that, I'll stop off at Mom's (it IS only just across the street!) and have her sign some papers (and get them notarized there, too...that is, IF the notary is there!); finally I need to stop at the bank on the way home, and that'll be it! :) After that, I'll just go on home and wait for the rain to start so it can wash away lots of the pollen! BTW, the count this morning is about 3500, only up by a coupla hundred.

Have a great day!

Good morning, jan,

I know how happy you were when you were able to get your mom closer to you. I feel the same way. :)

So today is to be a stay-at-home day for me. I didn't get a whole lot done yesterday (though some stuff) since we went up to Mom's. Hope to get things done today since I won't have another day at home until maybe Thursday.

Have a great day!

m6 l do my dishes in the dishwasher about every third day. l pick up before the housekeeper arrives.LOL. I am on an aged and disabled program which provides with housekeeper so l don't have to go into a home. It is a funded program by the government (meaning you)

Hey Janrey: thot that was where you were. Good for you. Real life is so much more important than blogs. Smile.

Not that l don't enjoy these blogs, l do. But then l am old. If l had more energy l would get out more. l did fill my potatoes up with dirt today. Most of the day l spent watching Gene Simmons Of KISS on tv . l had missed quite a few of the shows and got caught up. He has a nice family and l enjoy watching it.

Evening Claudie, Tru, geez, M6 and 330

Tru indeed I was out having a grand time on Bandi!! Low 70s this morning, sunny and slight breeze. Perfect spring day!!!!

I was so glad you worked things out with your house keeper but I understand how she might have been worried but hopefully this will be perfect for you both. If not she needs to go and you need to start the hunt.

M6 I haven't gotten back on Monty yet as he's so much bigger than Bandi. Right now I'm stll trying to figure out how to dismount safely and not hurt either knee! Bandi I can kind of slither down lol. It's a much longer slither on Monty!! Glad you're feeling better though.

Claudie I understand busy! Remember just a few years ago I was in the same shape as you are with your mom. Thankfully your mom doesn't have dementia like mine did. I will always be happy that I moved her up here to be closer to me and actually the only family she had left.

330 you've lost me again. Are you referring to Johnnie Ray that sang Crying?

Afternoon jan, geez, BB, Claudie and tru. I started a post yesterday evening, but my brother called and by the time I got back, my session had timed out.

geez, that was some good news, wasn't it? I hate getting drilled on more than I hate being sick.

Claudie, it's nice that you get to spend so much time with your Mom.

tru, I keep the house picked up and do the dishes once a day, but I leave the deep cleaning to Trish. Do you do all the tax withholding on your housekeeper or is she on a cash basis?

BB, any warm air up there yet?

jan, do you have better control over Monty since your repair?

Morning; no post from you since my last post, so l am jumping to a conclusion that you are out having fun with your horses. Smile.
Housekeeper did well on new schedule. Just at the end she said "l told Husband that l needed to sit down and talk with you. Are you firing me?"
I was stunned as l thought l had made it clear that l was only dropping the hours given for cooking meals. That she would have 20 a month left for housework and laundry. So l set her mind at ease.

Every time you use ALF, Claudie, I think of that stuffed Alf from the TV show of a few decades back. LOL

M6, I feel much better today. Commence with your sickness.

A pleasant surprise at the dentist. All those cavities turned out to be, well, not cavities. Old fillings apparently move a little over time and all they had to do was pack in a little filling material where the fillings had moved and I was good to go. No drilling, no pain. Just a little pothole repair.

Good morning, jan,

It'll be a busy part-of-the-day today...the ALF is having their Spring/Easter event from 11-2 today; it includes lunch and an Easter egg hunt, among other things. Daughter will be coming over to our house about 10:45 and she, hubby and I will be going together; we'll meet my brother, his wife, their grandson, my sister, and her 2 grandsons there. It'll be a nice crowd for Mom. :) We'll stay awhile and then head on back home for the rest of the day. Thank goodness it's going to be a gorgeous day...sunshiny and about 75°. :) I just checked, and while the pollen count is STILL high (of course), it's only about half of what it was yesterday. :)

Have a great day!

Morning Janrey;
Today is Friday, test day for housekeeper. Not too bad tho coz she is doing laundry which takes her away from house for half an hour at least. Arrives at 9 and leaves at 11 I hope. I may change the hours back to 8 to 10, then l can use some of the morning myself.

Fog again this morning then later it gets hot for an hour or two before the wind comes up by 3/30.

Have a lot of food to put away to clear the counters so they can be disinfected. I usually spray them with bleachwater before housekeeper arrives.

Fun day today. Dentist at 10:00. I haven't had a cavity in years, but they just got a digital X-ray machine and suddenly I have several. Now I have two visits for drill and fill.

Good morning, jan,

geezer, so sorry to hear about your kitty. I've had to do that twice and it's so very hard.

m6gm, hope you're feeling better today.

It's not a stay-at home day for me today (like it usually is); I have a doctor's appointment this morning to get the results from my blood work (done on Monday). Not looking forward to the results, though, since I am concerned about my glucose level. My mom says I'm just a big worrywart, but I am hoping for the best.

Have a great day!

Morning geez, M6, Tru and BB

Geez thankfully more was worn than just riding pants but my hair IS almost long enough to pull off a lady godiva lol

It really was a beautiful day and although my friend and I only went for a 45 minute walk it felt soooo good to be back on a horse again !!

Today I have physical therapy so won't ride and probably won't do much else although I still want to see the new Captain America movie.

BB there's always things to be done whether company is coming or not. The last few days I've been on a plant buying spree because I have someone that is actually doing the planting for me. That's a first but I can't really use a shovel yet digging in my clayey soil :/

M6 hope you feel better for the weekend. I too HATE being sick. Thankfully I rarely am probably because I'm around so few people.

Morning Janrey.. hope your ride goes well.
Yes it is important to have personalities and such jibe. Or it is very uncomfortable. I hope we have a better understanding now and anyway she is only going to be here half as long each time, so will be busier.
I tried going out in yard but in pain, so came back and went to bed. She found me there. Maybe that is what made her think.
I hope it goes better, coz nothing wrong with her work ..Smile

Morning Geez, Tru, M6, BB and Claudie

Geez I'm so sorry about Gnarly :-( I only have one cat now, my mom's abysinnian, Bella. It's probably been 40 years or more since I've only had just one :/ One of our first cats was a Maine Coon and she was the sweetest cat!

Tru I'm glad you worked things out with your housekeeper! I can't imagine anything more obnoxious than having to put up with someone taking care of my house that I don't want to be around. The same thing happened when mom first started needed caregivers as opposed to just housekeepers. We went through several with one agency til we finally found the perfect one that was with mom til I moved her up here. She and I are still great friends!!

The weather has been awesome but this morning was in the high 30s. Needs to stop doing that.

I'm sitting here in riding pants for the first time in over 6 weeks. Can't wait to get back on Bandi in an hour or so :-)

The lump was the result of a fight he got into, we think. It appeared suddenly several weeks later and by then it was well advanced. It could have been from some other unknown cause, too.

Gnarly was a hell of a cat. Personality oozed from him. If you've ever had a Maine Coon, maybe you can relate. Maine Coons are supposed to be gentle, but this guy could outfight just about anything on four legs.

He was comfortable only in uncomfortable places. The dishwasher, the knives drawer, inside the clothes dryer. He plopped himself on the TV remote whenever it was left unguarded. He'd signal he wanted to play by standing completely still, then falling over with a thud, then rolling on his back. You'd pet his stomach and he'd grab your arm and kick away with those big back feet, but he wouldn't bite.

All you had to do was pet the top of his head and he'd leave his "rage."

geez, sorry to hear about your pet. Didn't the vet notice the lump when he had his shots?

If any of y'all remember JettaFan, send him some encouraging words. He just found out that he has an aggressive form of leukemia and they started chemo today.

Tru, what if you put loud music on while she is there, or get someone to visit or stage a phone call then, or put on a big set of headphones? We have one friend who used to do all of his vacuuming with headphones on.

Sunny and cool here today. Unfortunately, it looks like one of Mrs. Geezer's cats has to be put down around noon. He's got a sinus cavity infection that has eaten away at the bone structure of the cavity and his skull. He's been sporting a large bump on his forehead because of it for several months, and it has now affected both sides of the cavity and breathing is difficult. He's been good up until yesterday, but his breathing is very shallow this morning and he isn't moving from the upstairs landing. Mrs. G is in tears, and I'm fighting them myself. He's a very entertaining and loving cat. We'll miss him tremendously.

Good morning, jan,

Yeah, while the rain DID lower the pollen count a little for Tuesday, it has gone right back up today. It'll only get higher and higher over the next week since there's no rain predicted until; next week some time. :(

It's going to be a kind of busy day for me today....breakfast at the Senior Center; then taking Mom to a 10:15 cardiologist appointment (to get the results from her ultrasound on her carotids from a coupla weeks ago); finally the yard guy's coming sometime this afternoon, though, I am not exactly sure what time. Maybe they'll call to let me know later this morning. Thank goodness it's going to be a nice day...though, quite windy, 'they' say!

Have a great day!

Good morning Janrey:
Yes that is a puzzle and hopefully doesn't happen again. Brave woman who knew nothing about horses, yet was able to move them. l am not sure l could do that.

I had a lovely weekend, drive thru the country, then the pool being so warm and nicely heated.....then the housekeeper arrived with all her incessant talk and negative stories. Lousy cooking and l am still swamped with thoughts swirling about how to get myself out of this and back to being happy.

Had another visit with chiropractor. My back still hurts but l can move with out great pain. I have the next three days to do what l want, then the housekeeper arrives again. Instead of looking forward to her help, l dread her arrival. That just isn't right.

It was 86 degrees yesterday. OK time to go get my heirloom tomato. That will make me smile.

Morning Claudie, M6, Tru and 330

Claudie I got about as much rain as you did yesterday and while it washed the pollen off of things I know from experience it will zoom right back up! I struggle this time of year and my allergy meds don't hold me as well as I'd like :/

M6 sorry about your Cats.

Tru I do have access to a pool here but it's not heated and not nearly warm enough for me to use it yet. But it will certainly be warm enough after my second surgery! I thought about joining a local gym for a month just to swim but honestly I have enough things to get back to doing on a day to day basis without taking more time out of the day.

330 I'd love Sibley then :-)

Have to see if we have 2 sound horses this morning. Monty and my friend's horse decided they didn't want to be in a pasture yesterday. The other horse is obviously the one that took down the section of fence and Monty thought it was a grand idea to follow along. The barn owner's housekeeper noticed they were on the wrong side of the fence but weren't sure they were ours....Monty is the only paint in the neighborhood and a loudly colored one at that! LOL

She had no idea how to put a halter on. Called everyone she could think of just to make sure they were ours. I missed the first call but got the second. She just put a lead rope around their neck and put them in an empty pasture. This is someone who has nothing to do with the horses!! She definitely gets an honorary barn girl award!!

Sure wish we knew what spooked them enough to go through a fence though.

M6, I was close twice. I sissied a 30 inch putt and missed birdie on the first one, but got the bird from about two feet on the island hole the last day.

I've never had a hole-in-one. Well, one that didn't involve a clown's mouth, anyway.

Fox squirrels, eh? Cool little guys. I notice they appear to breed with the grays because there were some dark gray squirrels, too.

Good morning, jan,

It rained and rained and rained pretty hard and steady from about 8 until noontime (yesterday); I checked the rain gauge and there's about 2.3 inches in it. All that rain did help with the pollen count, though, it didn't go down as much as I would have thought....it went from 2700 (for yesterday) to 1100. Better than nothing, I guess! No rain predicted for today, but the wind IS supposed to be a minor factor; supposedly going to be about 10-15 mph. That should be good b/c it can help dry things out.

I saw my first hummingbird yesterday evening, so I guess it's time to rinse out the bird feeder, fill it up, and get it hung up! :)

Have a great day!

geez, I'm kinda disappointed. I was hoping to hear a hole-in-one story.

Oh...and GO CATS!!

Morning:
Went to the pool here yesterday. High 70's and the pool had warm water coming into it and was just perfect. l think one of the fellows who swims there and covers the pool, also has key to room where temp is controlled, coz he mentioned he added water. He asked me why didn't l invite some of my friends to come with me to swim, and l told him l didn't
"like all the conversation then, and loved the peace and quiet and relaxing in the pool, so l don't ask them". Which is the truth. Some women go there and just visit, loudly. I just float around now and am not doing all the exercising l did last year, but still the quiet calms my soul.

Hi Janrey,

Was in Sibley, IL Saturday and I ran into The Strawberry Alarm Clock. The town smells of incenses and peppermint.

Morning geez, BB and Tru

Geez I knew you had to be enjoying our weather! The monkey faced squirrels are fox squirrels. Not common in the area where I live but see them fairly frequently when we take the horses to Camden to ride.

My grey squirrel population is thriving!! I'm sure I'll have offspring coming to the feeders soon enough lol

Tru we'd all be better off if the kitchen was farther away but since I'm the one doing the grocery shopping for myself I need to start making better decisions. Also I know when I get back to my normal activity level of cleaning stalls, walking 2 miles a day, riding then taking care of the horses in the evening I'll be able to eat maybe not everything I want but I'm burning a lot of calories! Still not able to do all that much yet :/

BB I had to watch Toronto too cold again so it's running through my head also. Funny but not funny lol

Good morning. Don't you hate it when you make it home from a long trip and the book on CD still has some time to run? This year we took my van and I was the only one to hear the end of it. Every one else missed the last 20 minutes. Should I recap it for them?

Good evening! Another nice day; sun and cool temps. And some trees are showing signs of beginning to think about maybe sometime soon budding out.

Jan, I've got that Toronto Too Cold running in my brain now-- thanks a lot! But it is all true!
