NANCY--ENJOY THE SUNNY, COOLER WEATHER.

EVELYNN--SORRY ABOUT THE COLD AND SNOW. WE GOT BELOW FREEZING LAST NIGHT AND THERE WAS SOME SNOW ON ROOFTOPS THIS MORNING. COLD FOR HALLOWEEN. I WENT TO OUR COLLEGE'S DAYCARE TRUNK OR TREAT, BUT WE DID IT INSIDE THIS MORNING.

NANCY--ENJOY THE SUN, EVEN IF ITS COLD.

LECATES--THEY LOST THE SEMIFINALS. WON THE FIRST SET IN A HARD FOUGHT SET, LOST THE SECOND IN A CLOSE SCORE, AND THEN FELL APART FOR THE THIRD SET. WE LEFT AT 8:30 AND GOT HOME BY 8:30. AND, YES, I WAS DONE WITH THE SEASON. ENJOY DISNEY!

HALLOWEEN AND IT'S MY BIRTHDAY. DRESSED UP AS A WITCH, MY ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT DRESSED UP AS THE QUEEN OF HEARTS. ABOUT HALF MY BUILDING DRESSES UP FOR HALLOWEEN. IT'S A LOT OF FUN.

MARCHEM, HOW DID THEY DO? IT KIND OF SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE READY FOR THE END OF THE SEASON---LOL
NANCY, WITH THE DOGS, HAVING EXTRA THROWS WOULD ALWAYS COME IN HANDY. I KNOW WE ARE GOING TO PUT THROWS OVER THE COUCH AND THE RECLINER WHILE WE ARE GONE. WE LEAVE SATURDAY MORNING AND COMING BACK THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY. I HOPE TO POP ON EACH DAY BUT NO PROMISES.
EVELYN, OH, MY. SEND THE COLD WEATHER TOWARDS FLORIDA FOR ME---LOL
I DEFINITELY NEED TO MAKE SURE I SUPER DOUSE MY INDOOR PLANTS FOR WHILE I AM GONE---THEY SHOULD BE OKAY AS THEY OFTEN GO A WEEK WITHOUT WATERING SO AN EXTRA DAY OR SO SHOULDN'T BE AN ISSUE. SEEING SOME BUDS FORMING ON THE CHRISTMAS CACTUS.

LECATES I GOT MY DAUGHTER AND YES I HAVE A GOOD IDEA, THE ONLY THING THAT SUCKS IS THAT THERE WAS NO DATE OR PLACE SETTLED, THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THE 29TH OF DECEMBER, HOPEFULLY MY DAUGHTER DOES'N DECIDE TO GO AND BUY WHAT I AM THINKING OF . THEN TOO SHE ALWAYS SAID AS OF THE BEGINNING OF NOVEMBER WE DON'T BUY THINGS BUT PUT THEM ON A GIFT LIST SUGGESTION.. I WANTED TO GET HER 1 FLUFFY THROW FOR HER NEW SOFA AND GET HER A SECOND FOR CHRISTMAS,, RIGHT NOW SHE HAS THROWN ODD BALL ONES ON BECAUSE HER DOG GETS UP ON THEM..OF COURSE SHE CAN TELL WHEN SHE GETS IN FROM WORK AS THE THROWS ARE A MESS..WHEN DO YOU LEAVE FOR VACATION?

MARCHEM GLAD "CAT" HAS AN INSIDE PLACE, THE LADY IN THE NEXT BUILDING ALWAYS LEAVES HER 2 CATS OUT, ONE BY THE NAME OF "COCO" WOULD GO TO ANYONE, WELL NOW "COCO" HAS NOT BEEN SEEN FOR CLOSE ON TO A MONTH, EVEN THOUGH HE HAD A COLLAR ON WITH PHONE NUMBER AND NAME ON IT I PRESUME HE IS VERY COMFORTABLE IN A WARM HOUSE
EVELYN HOPE THINGS GO QUICKLY FOR YOU

WE HAVE A SUNNY DAY BUT QUITE COOL HOWEVER I AM GOING FOR MY WALK WHILE THE SUN IS OUT.
HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE emoticon

EVELYN--SORRY ABOUT THE SNOW. HOPE YOUR PAPERWORK GOES THROUGH QUICKLY AND THE MONEY COMES FASTER THAN YOU EXPECT.

LECATES--GLAD YOU HAD A GOOD SUB YESTERDAY AND A GOOD WORKOUT. AFTER AN INTENSE GARDEN SESSION, THE BACK OF MY THIGHS USUALLY KILL ME TOO.

DD'S VOLLEYBALL TEAM WON THEIR FIRST ROUND OF DISTRICTS, SO DH AND I ARE GOING TO WATCH THE SEMIFINALS (AND HOPEFULLY FINALS) TONIGHT. IF THEY WIN AT 6:45, THEY PLAY THE FINAL GAME TONIGHT AT 8. IF THEY WIN THAT, THEN THEY MOVE ONTO SECTIONALS. SHOULD BE TOUGH, THOUGH. THE SEMIFINAL GAME IS AGAINST A TEAM THEY LOST TO ON THURSDAY AND THE FINAL GAME WILL LIKELY BE AGAINST A TEAM WE'VE HAD TROUBLE WITH BEFORE. SHOULD BE A FUN NIGHT NO MATTER WHAT.

NANCY, GLAD IT WAS GOOD FAMILY TIME. WHO DID YOU GET IN THE CHRISTMAS DRAW AND DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT TO GET? I WOULDN'T LIKE TO EAT THAT LATE EITHER---NOT GOOD FOR SLEEPING OR FOR DIABETICS EITHER. I WILL HAVE TO KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON DH AS WE WILL BE EATING AT WEIRD TIMES BECAUSE OF WHEN WE COULD GET OUR RESERVATIONS.
MARCHEM---GLAD THE KITTY FOUND AN INSIDE HOME. WE ARE ACTUALLY HAVING A WARMER THAN NORMAL WEEK HERE UNTIL THE DAY WE LEAVE----LOL----SO I AM GOING TO TRY TO LASSO THE COOL WEATHER AND TAKE IT DOWN WITH ME----HEEHEE
EVELYN, HOPE THE MONEY COMES QUICKLY AND THAT IS IS MORE THAN YOU EXPECT.
GOOD DAY YESTERDAY WITH A GOOD SUBSTITUTE WITH ME FOR MOST OF THE DAY. THEN A GOOD POOL WORKOUT THAT HELPED THE BACK OF MY LEGS THAT WERE SORE FROM PULLING UP THE FLOWERS AND WEEDS ON SATURDAY.

WE GOT ABVOUT 4INCHES. WEDSENDAY IT GOING TO BE SOME MORE . TWICE AS MUCH THEY ARE SAYING. WE DON'T GET THIS MUCH SNOW THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. I HOPE IT NOT LIKE THIS ALL WINTER. WAS WORKING ON THE ARMY PAPERS TO BE SENT OFF TO GET MY MONEY. I GOT TO CALL TO ASK A FEW THINGS. ALSO HAVE MY KIDS TO SIGN THE OTHER ONE TO GET BACK PAID. TIME TO GET THAT DONE. IT TAKE SO LONG FOR THEM TO DO THINGS. I HOPE I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOREVER FOR THE MONEY.

EVELYNN--HOPE THE FORECAST WAS WRONG. A FRIEND OF MINE IS IN DENVER AT A CONFERENCE AND SHE POSTED SNOWY PICTURES THIS MORNING.

LECATES--I'M EXCITED FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR VACATION. YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH THIS WEEK! YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU DESERVE THIS BREAK.

NANCY--GLAD YOU HAD A LOVELY FAMILY TIME. HOPE YOUR KNEE FEELS BETTER SOON.

WE DID SOME HALLOWEEN DECORATING YESTERDAY AND I HELPED DH CLEAN THE GUTTERS. WHILE WE WERE DOING THAT, WE HEARD A LOUD MEOW COMING FROM OUR NEIGHBOR'S OPEN WINDOW AND SAW CAT (THE ONE WHO WE ADOPTED AND FED OUTSIDE, THE ONE WE HAVEN'T SEEN IN ABOUT A WEEK). I GUESS OUR NEIGHBORS HAVE ADOPTED HER. IT'S FOR THE BEST, BECAUSE THEY ARE WILLING TO KEEP HER INSIDE AND ITS ABOUT TO GET COLD HERE (NOT EVELYNN OR JOANNE COLD, BUT COLD FOR US).

NANCY, HOPE YOU ATE SOMETHING BEFORE GOING. SAW SOME LOVELY MINI ROSE BUSHES IN BLOOM AT LOWE'S ON SATURDAY AND DID THINK OF YOU.
MARCHEM, SOUNDS NICE AND GLAD YOU ENJOYED IT.
EVELYN, SURE HOPE YOU DIDN'T GET 5 INCHES---WAY TOO EARLY OR IS THIS NORMAL FOR YOUR AREA?
iT WAS JUST TOO WARM HERE YESTERDAY ---SHOULD COOL DOWN TODAY. DIDN'T RAIN AS MUCH AS THEY PREDICTED, AT LEAST IN DAYTIME HOURS---MUST HAVE REALLY RAINED AT NIGHT AS THERE WAS WATER STANDING IN A LOT OF PLACES. THE FRONT YARD LOOKED SO MUCH BETTER WHEN I PULLED INTO THE DRIVEWAY WHEN COMING HOME FROM CHURCH.
NEXT WEEK I WILL BE HEADING TO ANOTHER PLANET ON THIS DAY----LOL---I SO NEED THIS BREAK THIS YEAR.

LECATES--WE HAD A LOVELY DINNER. THANK YOU! THE RESTAURANT IS IN A SMALL TOWN IN KANSAS ABOUT 30-40 MINUTES FROM OUR HOUSE. THE FOOD AND SERVICE ARE GREAT (AND BESIDES A CATHOLIC CHURCH THAT DOES AN AMAZING FISH FRY FOR LENT) THERE'S NOTHING ELSE IN THE TOWN. WE HAD A REALLY NICE ANNIVERSARY! GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO GET SOME GARDEN CLEAN UP DONE.

NANCY--ENJOY YOUR FAMILY GATHERING, EVEN IF THERE'S NO FOOD.

TODAY, THE KIDS ARE GOING TO WORK ON HOMEWORK AND THEN WE'LL FINISH DECORATING FOR HALLOWEEN. WE'RE CARVING PUMPKINS AND STRINGING UP THE FAKE SPIDER WEBS. SHOULD BE A NICE, RELAXING DAY.

NANCY, GLAD YOU LIKE THE COLOR. WHEN I PAINTED THE BATHROOM I GOT A SAMPLER AND PAINTED A SECTION---FIGURED IF I DIDN'T LIKE IT, IT COULD BE PAINTED OVER---BUT I MADE A GOOD CHOICE AND IT GREW ON DH---LOL YIKES TO THOSE COLORS---NO WONDER HE HAD TO PUT PRIMER ON THOSE WALLS.
MARCHEM--CONGRATS TO THE WIN AND MAKING A HIGH RANKING FOR THE PLAY OFF. DID YOU ENJOY DINNER OUT? GUESS YOUR DH DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH CLOTHES SINCE YOU HAD TO GIVE UP YOUR BLANKET.
WE WENT SHOPPING AND THEN CAME HOME AND CLEANED OUT THE FRONT FLOWER BEDS OF PLANTS AND WEEDS---LOOKS SO MUCH NEATER UP FRONT---YOU KNOW HOW SCRAGGLY PLANTS LOOK THIS TIME OF YEAR. EVEN CLEANED UP THE DAY LILY BEDS SOME----PULLED UP THE CAGES THAT SUPPORT THEM ---BUT SOME STALKS STILL NEED TO DRY SOME MORE BEFORE THEY COME OFF. BOY, WAS I SORE LAST NIGHT AND THIS MORNING BUT AT LEAST I KNOW WHY..
GOING TO BE A RAINY SUNDAY AGAIN SO A GOOD DAY TO REST UP FROM YESTERDAY'S GARDENING.

LECATES--OUR HIGH SCHOOL TEAM WON LAST NIGHT, SO THEY ARE CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS AND SEATED 1ST IN THEIR DISTRICT. DISTRICT PLAY STARTS NEXT WEEK AT HOME! TEMPS IN THE LOW 40'S LAST NIGHT. I DRESSED IN LAYERS AND WAS MOSTLY WARM, EXCEPT DD TOOK MY BLANKET, SO MY BUTT WAS A LITTLE COLD SITTING ON THE METAL BLEACHERS. DECIDED NOT TO GO TO THE COLLEGE GAME TODAY. WE'RE WATCHING OHIO STATE (MY ALMA MATER AND WHERE I MET AND MARRIED DH) AND THEN WILL GO OUT TO DINNER TONIGHT AT A FAVORITE RESTAURANT FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY. AS FOR COLLEGE GAME TICKETS, ALL STAFF GET 2 FREE TICKETS TO EACH GAME, STUDENTS GET 1 FREE TICKET.

NANCY--HOPE THE PAINTING AND YOUR HAIR CUT GO WELL.

ENJOYING THIS COOLER FALL WEATHER.

LECATES I PUT A DAB OF THE COLOUR BEHIND THE DOOR IN THE WASHROOM AND I WILL BE ABLE TO LIVE WITH IT, I DON'T CHANGE THINGS OFTEN BUT AFTER 5 YEARS OF LOOKING AT THAT DARK WALL IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE. WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED THAT YOU LIKE ORANGE
I SPOKE TO MY DAUGHTER THIS MORNING AND HER HUBBY HAD TOLD HER THAT HE WAS GOING TO COME PAINT THE WALL, RIGHT NOW HE IS GIVING A COAT OF PRIMER IN ONE OF THE DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOMS AT THEIR HOUSE,, IT WAS RED AND LIME GREEN, SO LIKE MY DAUGHTER SAID SHE IS TAKING HER HOUSE BACK NOW THAT THE GIRLS HAVE MOVED OUT AND THAT HER SON IS THERE MAYBE ONE NIGHT A WEEK, THE REST OF THE TIME HE IS WITH THE GIRLFRIEND

GOING TO WALK OVER TO THE HAIRDRESSER FOR A CUT, BANGS ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF MY GLASSES SO TIME TO CHOP THEM OFF

HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE emoticon

NANCY, HOPEFULLY YOU WILL LIKE HOW IT LOOKS ON THE WALL. GLAD YOU FOUND THAT PICTURE FOR IN THERE. JOY MADE ME ONE OF THOSE DIAMOND DOT PICTURES WITH ORANGE SUNFLOWERS--IT LOOKS GOOD IN MY BATHROOM, TOO. AND I HAVE A SMALL LANDSCAPE IN THERE WITH LOTS OF ORANGE---I PICKED THAT UP AT THE DOLLAR STORE ONE YEAR AND I STILL LOVE HOW IT LOOKS IN THERE, TOO.
MARCHEM, WE HAVE SOMETHING SIMILAR AT THE HIGH SCHOOLS WHICH MAKES IT A LOT EASIER ON THE PARENTS, TOO. DO YOU HAVE TO PAY TO GO TO THE COLLEGE GAMES WHERE YOU WORK OR DO YOU HAVE STAFF PRIVILEGE THERE? I CAN TAKE ONE GUEST WITH ME TO EVENTS FOR FREE AT THE HIGH SCHOOLS HERE.
I DID FEEL WELL ENOUGH TO GO TO SCHOOL YESTERDAY----SIPS FLUIDS ALL DAY AS I WAS A BIT WEAK, PROBABLY FROM DEHYDRATION---SO THAT HELPED A LOT. WENT TO CHURCH LAST NIGHT FOR THE DINNER AND MEETINGS AFTERWARDS---SO GLAD I DID BECAUSE THE GUEST SPEAKER FOR THE LADIES WAS A ONE OF MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASSMATES---SHE GAVE A WONDERFUL MESSAGE.
I MIGHT PULL UP THE REST OF MY VINCA SO THAT EVERYTHING IS READY TO GO FOR CHRISTMAS DECORATING WHEN WE GET HOME FROM DISNEY. CAN YOU BELIEVE THERE IS NOW LESS THAN 2 MONTHS UNTIL CHRISTMAS?

LECATES--I HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON. FRIENDS OF OURS OWN AN URGENT CARE BUSINESS (HE'S A PHYSICIANS ASSISTANT) AND THEY SAID THEY'VE BEEN SEEING A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH STOMACH BUGS.

AS FOR PLAYOFFS, YES, WE HAVE TO PAY TO ATTEND. FOR REGULAR SEASON, WE USUALLY BECOME BOOSTER CLUB MEMBERS AND GET IN FOR FREE THAT WAY. THIS YEAR, DH DID, BUT I THOUGHT IT WASN'T WORTH IT, BECAUSE I ONLY GO TO FOOTBALL GAMES. WE ARE BOOSTER CLUB MEMBERS OF DD'S SCHOOL, BUT SHE CHEERS FOR BASKETBALL (BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS GAMES) AND SHE'S THE VOLLEYBALL MANAGER. WE'LL BOTH END UP GOING TO A LOT OF GAMES. SHE GOES TO A PRIVATE SCHOOL THAT'S A DIFFERENT SYSTEM THAN HER BROTHER'S PUBLIC SCHOOL. ON A SIDE NOTE, HE GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL 1.5 YEARS AGO IN A CLASS OF 500. SHE'S CURRENTLY A SOPHOMORE IN A CLASS OF 25. PLAYOFF GAMES ARE REGULATED BY THE STATE AND NO PASSES CAN BE ACCEPTED, SO WE HAVE TO PAY, BUT WE ENJOY IT.

NANCY--GOOD LUCK ON THE PAINTING. I'M SURE IT WILL BE LOVELY.

LECATES, THE WALLPAPER WAS A DARK GRAY WITH BIG BURGANDY FLOWERS SO WHITE WILL SUIT ME FINE, WENT FOR BREAKFAST WITH MY SISTER AND A FRIEND, THEN WE WENT INTO THE DOLLAR STORE AND I BOUGHT A 3D PICTURE WHENEVER I GO WITH MY DAUGHTER OR GRAND DAUGHTER I ALWAYS SAY "I LIKE THAT" SO NOW I HAVE IT AND IT WILL LOOK GREAT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WALL
BUT THEN TOO IT IS KNOWN TO HAVE HAPPENED MANY TIMES, I MAY CHANGE MY MIND BUT I DON'T THINK SO,, FEEL BETTER SOON

HOPING MY SON IN LAW WILL PAINT ON THE WEEKEND BUT I DON'T WANT TP PUSH EITHER. DON'T ASK THE COLOUR CAUSE I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO MIX THIS COLOUR AGAIN, IF I DON'T LIKE IT I WILL BUY A GALLON,, BUT FOR NOW USING WHAT I HAVE ALL MIXED TOGETHER IT LOOKS TO BE A CREAMY COLOUR AND THERE IS A LITTLE SHORT OF A GALLON

JOANNE, SOUNDS LIKE YOU WILL BE BUSY. AS LONG AS YOU CAN DIG INTO THE GROUND YOU SHOULD BE OKAY WITH THOSE BULBS---BUT ASAP FOR YOU. I CAN STILL PLANT BULBS HERE BUT I AM A LOT WARMER THAN YOU.
NANCY, AT LEAST THE STICKERS WILL BREAK UP THE WHITE. I AM NOT A FAN OF WHITE MYSELF IF EVERYTHING ELSE IS WHITE, BUT BREAKING IT UP WITH THOSE STICKERS WILL HELP. I GOT MY HOUSE BEAUTIFUL MAGAZINE THE OTHER DAY AND EVERY THING WAS WALLPAPER AND WERE ABSOLUTELY HIDEOUS--NOTHING NICE ABOUT ANY ROOM SHOWN---EVEN THE ORANGE ONES---LOL I DON'T KNOW HOW ANYONE COULD RELAX IN ANY OF THE ROOMS EXCEPT FOR THE ONE THAT WAS PAINTED OMBRE SHADING---EVERYTHING SEEMED SO BUSY LOOKING.
MARCHEM, HOPE THEY DO WELL IN THE PLAY OFFS. DO YOU HAVE TO PAY TO GO TO GAMES THERE? WE CHARGE FOR ALL EVENTS BUT I CAN GET IN FREE AS AN EMPLOYEE---EXCEPT FOR PLAY OFF GAMES, THEN WE ALL HAVE TO PAY.
I ENDED UP COMING HOME SICK YESTERDAY---STARTED THROWING UP ABOUT 9 AND THE OTHER END WAS GOING TOO! FEEL BETTER THIS MORNING SO GOING IN. JUST EATING BLAND FOOD FOR NOW.

EVELYNN--GLAD THE PT IS HELPING, EVEN THOUGH IT HURTS. NO PAIN, NO GAIN. SORRY ABOUT THE SNOW. I THINK WE'RE GETTING A SLIGHTLY WARMER VERSION OF YOUR WEATHER. IT'S RAINING AND COLDER HERE (40'S), BUT LUCKILY, NO SNOW YET.

LECATES--I HOPE DH RECOVERS WELL. SORRY ABOUT YOUR TEACHER. HOPEFULLY ADMINISTRATION WILL DO SOMETHING SOON. IF YOU HAVEN'T COMPLAINED TO THE PRINCIPAL, YOU SHOULD. WE TRY TO LIMIT THE CAT FOOD, BUT WE'LL DEFINITELY BE ON THE LOOKOUT.

JOANNE--ENJOY YOUR COMPANY AND GOOD LUCK ON YOUR PRESENTATION TONIGHT. THANKS FOR THE WELL WISHES.

NANCY--MONUMENTAL WHITE SOUNDS LOVELY FOR THE BATHROOM WALL.

IT'S BEEN A BUSY WEEK AND TODAY HAS CALMED DOWN A LITTLE, SO I'M TRYING TO CATCH UP. TONIGHT IS THE LAST REGULAR SEASON VOLLEYBALL GAME FOR DD'S TEAM. THEY START DISTRICTS NEXT WEEK AND ARE THE 2ND SEED.

JOANNE, THE CROCUS BULBS ARE USUALLY VERY HARDY BUT BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER YOU HAVE BEEN HAVING I AM NOT TO SURE

LECATES HOPE THINGS START TO GO BETTER AT WORK FOR YOU. I THINK THE WALL WILL BE "MONUMENTAL WHITE" AND MY GRAND DAUGHTER CAN PUT STICKER FROM THE DOLLAR STORE ON IT,, MOST LIKELY FLOWER DESIGNS,, SHE WILL ENJOY DOING THAT AND I CAN ALWAYS TAKE THEM OFF IF I GET FED UP IN 5 YEARS

MARCHEM LIKE LECATES SAID, RACOONS WERE AFTER FOOD,

EVELYN SORRY YOU GOT SNAW ALREADY AND GLAD YOU ARE FEELING BETTER

JOANNE,, TAKE CARE AS YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR GUESTS

LECATES, I A M SORRY YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE STRESS OF A COWORKER LIKE THAT ON A DAILY BASIS. IT REALLY TAKES A LOT OF THE JOY OUT OF GOING TO WORK, HOPE YOUR DH IS FEELING BETTER AFTER HIS SHOT.

MARCHEM, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. 22 YEARS IS SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE!

NANCY, SOUNDS LIKE ALL THESE HOME IMPROVEMENTS WILL MAKE YOUR LIVING SPACE FRESH AND NEW!

I AM THE PRESENTER AT BOOK CLUB TONIGHT (ALWAYS A LITTLE NERVOUS), AND HAVE FRIENDS COMING FROM OUT OF TOWN FOR AN EXTENDED WEEKEND. LOTS TO DO TO FRESHEN BEDS AND PLAN MEALS. A FRIEND GAVE ME A DOZEN CRO US BULBS. I WILL TRY TO PLANT THEM TODAY, BUT AM WORRIED THAT IT IS TOO LATE AND THEY WONT MAKE ROOTS NOW TO SURVIVE THE WINTER. OH WELL, WORTH A TRY, I GUESS...

NANCY, SO WHAT COLOR ARE GOING TO HAVE IT PAINTED? IF IT DOESN'T HAVE A WINDOW, SOMETHING BRIGHT WILL HELP MAKE IT SEEM BRIGHTER. ON THE EXPERT TOPIC, SOMEONE HAD A ROSE QUESTION SO YOU MIGHT SEE IF WHAT I WROTE WAS GOOD.
EVELYN, SORRY ABOUT THE SNOW. GLAD THE PT HELPS AFTER A WHILE.
MARCHEM, THE RACCOONS WERE ATTRACTED TO THAT FOOD YOU PUT OUT THERE FOR THE 3-LEGGED CAT. NOW THAT YOU FED IT, IT WILL BE BACK MORE. HOPE THE WILD ONE TAMES DOWN ENOUGH FOR YOU TO PET IT. DON'T PUT OUT TOO MUCH FOOD THAT IT CAN'T EAT IT ALL AT ONCE SO THAT YOU DON'T GET CRITTERS UP THERE, TOO.
DH WAS DEFINITELY MORE GROGGY AFTER THIS PROCEDURE THAN HE WAS FROM THE OTHERS SO I STAYED HOME WITH HIM LAST NIGHT INSTEAD OF THE POOL. BACK TO WORK TODAY---NOT REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING EITHER---WHICH IS SAD TO SAY.

IT SNOWING NOW AND A COLD WIND. STAYING HOME TOMORROW. P.T. IS HELPING A LITTLE . HURT A LOT AFTER I DO IT BUT AFTER A WHILE IT STOPS AND I'M NOT IN SO MUCHPAIN.

START BY THE DOING WHAT'S NECESSARY, THEN WHAT'S POSSIBLE, AND SUDDENLY YOU ARE DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE.

BOY THAT WAS AN INTERESTING NIGHT, I MAY SOUND MEAN BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF CATS THAT SHOW UP ON MY BALCONY BUT I NEVER FEED THEM. MY LITTLE ONE SEES THEM ON THE BALCONY AND TAKES A HISSY FIT.

WELL PAPER IS GONE SO TOMORROW I HAVE TO WASH THE WALL WITH JUST COLD WATER, RIGHT NOW I AM CALLING THE WALL "THE ROLLER CLEANER WALL"WHEN THE GANG PAINTED WHEN I MOVED HERE I THINK THAT IS WHAT THEY DID, IT WAS GREY, I PAPERED, NOW THE WALL IS GRAY, WHITE AND LIME GREEN (WHICH WAS THE SECOND WALL COLOUR)

LECATES--GOOD LUCK WITH HUBBY'S SHOT AND HOPEFULLY, THE PRINCIPAL WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS TEACHER. SO SORRY FOR YOUR STRESS IN DEALING WITH HER.

NANCY--GLAD THE WALLPAPER IS ALMOST GONE AND THAT YOUR SON IN LAW WILL BE PAINTING THE BATHROOM.

THANKS, LECATES AND NANCY, FOR THE ANNIVERSARY WELL WISHES!

INTERESTING ANIMAL NIGHT AT OUR HOUSE LAST NIGHT. WE'VE ESSENTIALLY ADOPTED A CAT. SHE STARTED HANGING AROUND AND WE'VE BEEN FEEDING HER. DH WON'T LET HER IN THE HOUSE, BUT WE'RE FIGURING OUT WAYS TO KEEP HER WARM ON THE PORCH. A FEW DAYS AGO SHE HAD A FIGHT WITH A 3-LEGGED CAT WHO TRIED TO GET UP ON OUR PORCH. CAT (WHAT WE'RE CALLING HER. NOT VERY ORIGINAL, BUT BETTER THAN SOME OF THE NAMES DH AND DS SUGGESTED) DEFENDED HER PORCH WELL, EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS MUCH SMALLER THAN THE 3-LEGGED CAT. LAST NIGHT THE 3-LEGGED CAT SHOWED UP ON OUR BACK DECK. WE PETTED HER A LITTLE, FED HER A LITTLE, AND GOT A LOOK AT HER TAG (SHE HAD ONE, CAT DOES NOT). I CALLED THE NUMBER ON THE TAG AND REPORTED THAT SHE WAS IN OUR YARD. THE LADY WHO ANSWERED SAID THE 3-LEGGED CAT IS AN OUTDOOR CAT AND SHE ROAMS AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND SHE'S FINE. AS LONG AS SHE AND CAT STAY AWAY FROM EACH OTHER, WE SHOULD BE OKAY. LATER THAT NIGHT, WE SAW 2 RACCOONS ON OUR BACK DECK. THEY RAN OFF WHEN DH MADE SOME NOISE.

JOANNE, THE DECK WAS UP TO THE LANDLORDS TO MAKE SURE IT WAS SAFE, WHICH IT WASN,T.. THE WALL PAPER IS MY CHOICE, I NEVER LIKED IT AS IT WAS TOO DARK BUT MY DAUGHTERS SAID IT WOULD BE NICE AS I HAVE A BIG BATHROOM.. THAT BEING SAID I LOOKED AT IT FOR 5 YEARS EVERY TIME I WENT INTO THE WASHROOM.. JUST ABOUT ALL IS OFF NOW

LECATES THE PAINTING WILL BE MY SON IN LAW'S JOB. SORRY ABOUT THAT TEACHER NOT SHOWING AGAIN. GOOD LUCK WITH HUBBY;S SHOT.. YOU TAKE CARE

MARCHEM emoticon ON THE 22 YEARS,, AND ENJOY YOUR TIME OUT

EVELYN. HOW ARE YOU DOING?

NANCY, BE CAREFUL. THERE ARE PAINTS THAT HAVE THE PRIMER MIXED IN AND ONLY TAKES ONE COAT. MAKE SURE IT IS FOR HIGH MOISTURE AREA, TOO. I USED VALSPAR IN MY BATHROOM AND IT ONLY TOOK ONE COAT.
MARCHEM, SOUNDS LIKE A KIND OF NICE PLAN---AS LONG AS THE GAME IS NOT A WET ONE. WOOHOO TO 22 YEARS.
NO TEXT FROM THE TEACHER---GOT TO SCHOOL AND FOUND OUT SHE WOULD NOT BE THERE----GRRRRRRR---FINAL STRAW---I AM TALKING WITH THE PRINCIPAL AND THE VP IN CHARGE OF SUBS ON THURSDAY.
DH HAS HIS BACK INJECTION TODAY SO I AM OFF----HOPE THEY FIND SOMEONE TO BE WITH THE KIDS.

JOANNE--SORRY ABOUT THE SWEET POTATOES, BUT NOTHING VENTURED, NOTHING GAINED.

LECATES--HOPE THINGS GO WELL WITH YOUR TEACHER AND THAT WITH ALL THE RAIN, THE BURN BAN GETS LIFTED.

NANCY-- GOOD LUCK WITH THE WALLPAPER AND BE SAFE WHILE STANDING ON THE SHELF.

COOL HERE. WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GET RAIN THURSDAY AND A COLD FRONT BEHIND IT, SO EVEN COLDER AFTER THAT. STILL NOT LOOKING AT A FROST YET. LIKELY COLD FOR FOOTBALL FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. OUR ANNIVERSARY IS SATURDAY AND DH WANTS TO GO TO MY COLLEGE'S GAME IN TALEQUAH, OK AND THEN GO OUT TO EAT AT A RESTAURANT WE LIKE THERE. I'M GAME FOR THE ADVENTURE. IT'LL BE OUR 22ND ANNIVERSARY.

GOOD MORNING TEAM
HAVE 1/2 OF THE PAPER OFF OF THE WALL. NOW IT WILL BE A BIT HARDER CAUSE I WILL BE WORKING ABOVE THE BATH, THINK I WILL TAKE A SHELF FROM A CLOSET TO STAND ON.. WON'T BE PUTTING MORE PAPER BUT JUST HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT I WANT MY SON IN LAW TO DO, UNDER THE PAPER I CAN SEE WHERE IT DID HAVE A COAT OF FLAT AND I CAN SEE THE GRAY SHOWING THROUGH,, GUESSING IT WILL NEED ANOTHER COAT OF FLAT BEFORE PAINTING. THANKS FOR THE TIPS

COOL WITH RAIN MOVING IN LATER TODAY FOR 2 DAYS. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL YESTERDAY BUT I GUESS THAT WILL SOON BE GONE FOR A FEW MONTHS ANYWAY BUT DID ENJOY WALKING WITH JUST A LIGHT SWEATER

TAKE CARE EVERYONE AND LECATES SEEMS LIKE THE TEACHER WANTS TO STAY HOME MORE THAN WORK emoticon

NANCY, FABRIC SOFTENER MIXED INTO WATER DOES THE TRICK AS WELL AS THE PRODUCTS YOU CAN BUY---YOU JUST HAVE TO REALLY SOAK THE PAPER. THE TSP MIXED WITH WATER WILL HELP TAKE THE STICKY STUFF OFF THE WALL AFTER THE PAPER COMES OFF., ESP. IF YOU WANT TO PAINT IT AFTERWARDS.
MARCHEM, HEARD THE BURN BAN WAS LIFTED IN THE NEXT COUNTY BUT NOTHING YET WHERE I LIVE---MIGHT HAVE TO ASK MY FIREFIGHTER SON IF IT HAS BEEN LIFTED YET.. WE DID GET QUITE A BIT OF RAIN OF SUNDAY.
JOANNE, YOU JUST NEVER KNOW HOW A CROP WILL TURN OUT.
TIRED THIS MORNING---AFRAID I WILL HEAR SOON THAT THE TEACHER IS NOT COMING TODAY---SHE LEFT EARLY YESTERDAY BECAUSE OF A SICK CHILD AFTER ARRIVING LATE THAT MORNING. SHE IS MUCH WORSE THAN LAST YEAR'S TEACHER.
RAIN EXPECTED THIS EVENING---HOPE WE CAN RUN ERRANDS BEFORE IT STARTS WHEN I GET HOME TODAY.

EVELYN, KEEP AT THOSE EXERCISES! IT WILL BE WORTH IT IN THE LONG RUN.

LECATES, I FIGURE THOSE WERE THE MOST EXPENSIVE SWEET POTATOES I EVER ATE, MY FAMILY REALLY GAVE ME A BAD TIME ABOUT THE SAD LITTLE HARVEST AFTER ALL MY EXCITEMENT ABOUT GROWING THEM AND BABYING THEM ALL SUMMER,

LECATES--GLAD YOU GOT SOME RAIN. HOPE THE BURN BAN IS LIFTED. WE HAD SOME RAIN OVERNIGHT. BAD STORMS SOUTH OF US, BUT WE WERE LUCKY TO JUST GET RAIN.

NANCY--GOOD LUCK FINDING THE WALLPAPER REMOVAL PRODUCT. I DON'T KNOW THE NAME. I HATE STRIPPING WALLPAPER. LUCKILY, WE DON'T HAVE ANY IN OUR HOUSE. WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE, AS A FUNDRAISER FOR A CLUB, WE VOLUNTEERED OUR TIME HELPING PEOPLE WITH HOME PROJECTS FOR A DONATION TO THE CLUB. I HELPED STRIP WALLPAPER FROM AN OLDER HOME. WHILE IT WAS A FASCINATING HISTORICAL STUDY AND GREAT EXERCISE, IT'S NOT SOMETHING I'D WANT TO REPEAT.

MY DOCTOR'S APPT. WENT WELL THIS MORNING. JUST MY ANNUAL PHYSICAL. I'VE BEEN A LITTLE WORRIED ABOUT MY BLOOD PRESSURE, BUT IT WAS WELL WITHIN RANGE THIS MORNING. I THINK CUTTING BACK ON SODIUM IS PROBABLY HELPING. SHE COMMENTED ON MY WEIGHT LOSS AND I TOLD HER ABOUT SP.

I KNOW THERE IS A PRODUCT TO PUT IN THE WATER THAT HELPS WITH THE REMOVAL OF IT BUT CAN'T THINK OF THE NAME, FOR SOME REASON TSP IS STICKING IN MY THOUGHTS

LECATES--GLAD THE SHED IS PROGRESSING AND IS NOW A CHRISTMAS SHED.

NANCY--WELCOME BACK! SORRY ABOUT THE COMPUTER PROBLEMS, BUT GLAD THEY ARE FIXED.

WENT TO MY FORMER NEIGHBORS' KIDS' BIRTHDAY PARTY. REALLY ENJOYED SEEING EVERYONE AND GOT LOTS OF HUGS FROM THE KIDS. ALSO, HAD A BEAUTIFUL DRIVE TO THE PARTY. THE FALL FOLIAGE IS REALLY STARTING AND LOOKING BEAUTIFUL. STILL A LOT OF GREEN, BUT THE OTHER COLORS (ESPECIALLY THE REDS) ARE STARTING TO COME OUT.

JOANNE, GLAD YOU ARE FEELING BETTER AND ABLE TO DO YARD WORK. I FINALLY DUG UP THE SWEET POTATOES---THEY LOOK LIKE YOURS DID----LOL---I THINK MINE WAS DUE TO THE DROUGHT WE HAD THE LAST 6 OR 8 WEEKS THAT THEY WERE GROWING.. bOY, THAT PUPPY SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF WORK---GLAD YOU ARE ENJOYING AT LEAST PART OF IT.
MARCHEM, GLAD IT WASN'T TOO COLD AND THAT YOU ENJOYED IT. NICE THAT YOUR DH DOES THE WEEKLY COOKING FOR YOU.
EVELYN, PUT IT ON YOUR CALENDAR AND MAKE SURE YOU DO THEM. GLAD YOU ARE FEELING BETTER.
HELPED DH WITH BUILDING SOME STONE STEPS UP THE THE SHED. THEN MOVED THE CHRISTMAS WIRE STUFF STILL ON THE DECK BACK THERE AND PUT THEM INSIDE---SO IT IS OFFICIALLY THE CHRISTMAS SHED---LOL

LECATES--GLAD THAT YOU GOT THE SHED SO QUICKLY AND DH HAS A NEW TOY. ALSO, GLAD YOU COULD SHARE THE PUMPKIN PATCH WITH LITTLE ONES. THAT'S SO FUN. FOOTBALL GAME WAS CHILLY, BUT NOT TOO BAD. I WAS COMFORTABLE IN JEANS, A HOODIE, AND A COAT. IT WAS SENIOR NIGHT AND I KNOW A LOT OF THE SENIORS AND THEIR FAMILIES. WE WON 48-14. THE TEAM HAS ONE MORE REGULAR SEASON GAME AND WILL LIKELY WIN THE CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP.

JOANNE--I DO LOVE COOKING AND BAKING, THOUGH I AM MORE OF A BAKER THAN A COOK. DH IS A FORMER CHEF AND IS A STAY AT HOME DAD, SO HE DOES MOST OF THE COOKING DURING THE WEEK. I COOK ON WEEKENDS AND FOR SPECIAL EVENTS. YOU SOUND LIKE QUITE THE COOK AS WELL. THE HOMEMADE SOUP WITH DUMPLINGS SOUNDS SCRUMPTIOUS.

I'VE BEEN WALKING MORE AND AM CURRENTLY ON A 26 DAY STREAK OF WALKING 8,000 STEPS OR MORE A DAY. THE SCALE HASN'T CHANGED MUCH, BUT MY CLOTHES ARE FITTING BETTER. I HAVE AN ANNUAL EXAM ON MONDAY AND I HAVE LOST 12 LBS. SINCE MY LAST EXAM.

MARCHEM, YOU SEEM LIKE SUCH A GOOD COOK! I LOVE HEARING ABOUT ALL THE THINGS YOU MAKE, AND YOU MAY PICTURE ME WITH MY MOUTH WATERING OVER EVERY POST!

I COOKED UP THE (THANKSGIVING) TURKEY CARCASS AND MADE A BIG POT OF SOUP. YOU KNOW HOW HOMEMADE SOUP IS: MORE STEW THAN SOUP. SO I DECIDED INSTEAD OF THE USUAL NOODLES I WOULD TRY SOME OF YOUR SLICK DUMPLINGS. THEY WERE SUPER EASY TO MAKE, AND REALLY QUITE YUMMY IN THE SOUP! THEY TASTED A LOT LIKE REGULAR DUMPLINGS AND THEY JUST MELTED IN THE MOUTH. THANKS FOR TURNING ME ON TO A NEW COMFORT FOOD!

OUR WEATHER IS HOLDING AND I AM FINALLY FEELING WELL AGAIN AFTER MY VERTIGO AND COLD/FLU VIRUS, SO I GOT A LOT OF YARD CLEANUP DONE THIS WEEK. I STILL HAVE CARROTS TO DIG, WHICH IS HAPPENING TOMORROW. I TRENCHED IN MY STRAWBERRIES, SO COME SPRING I WILL KNOW IF THAT IS THE WAY TO KEEP THEM FROM FREEZING TO DEATH THROUGH OUR LONG COLD WINTER!

THE NEW PUPPY IS A DELIGHT! WE ARE STILL WORKING ON HOUSE TRAINING, BUT SHE GETS BETTER EVERY DAY. SHE HAS LEARNED TO RING THE BELL BY THE BACK DOOR WHEN SHE WANTS TO GO OUTSIDE (WHICH IS GREAT) BUT NOT THAT SHE SHOULD RING IT BEFORE SHE POOPS ON THE FLOOR (WHICH IS NOT SO GREAT!) COME-BACK-HERE-WITH-MY-GARDENING-GLOVE IS BEYOND HER SCOPE YET AND "CHASE ME, CHASE ME" IS HER FAVOURITE GAME! IT IS SO MUCH FUN HAVING A PUPPY AGAIN - IT HAS BEEN OVER 15 YEARS SINCE WE HAD ONE. WE ARE GETTING A CONSTANT WORKOUT, AND SO MANY LAUGHS! SHE IS MORE FUN TO WATCH THAN TV!!

WE PAID FOR THE SHED---GOT SON'S SEAL OF APPROVAL---LOL---AND THEY DELIVERED IT THAT DAY, TOO. THEY HAD A CANCELLATION SO IT WAS THE PERFECT DAY. WE DID GO TO THE SAME PUMPKIN PATCH WITH OUR GD AND OUR SON'S GF'S SON---THEY HAD FUN. IT WAS REALLY INTERESTING WATCHING NOW THE TRUCK DID ALL THE WORK IN POSITIONING AND PUTTING THE SHED DOWN ON THE STONE BASE THAT THE GUY HAD DONE EARLIER IN THE AFTERNOON. HE EVEN SHOWED US HOW THE MACHINE COULD TURN THE BUILDING IF WE HAD WANTED IT SO THE DOOR WAS ON THE SIDE OF THE YARD. I WAS VERY GLAD I WAS HOME TO WATCH IT ALL HAPPEN. SO NOW DH HAS HIS NEW TOY TO PLAY WITH---HEEHEE.

GLAD SHE WAS ABLE TO SLEEP IN THIS MORNING. YES, IT IS SAD ABOUT DS'S FRIEND. GLAD HE WAS ABLE TO GO TO THE FUNERAL WITH ANOTHER FRIEND.

FALL FOLIAGE IS BEAUTIFUL, THOUGH MOSTLY JUST THE REDS AND PURPLES. WAITING ON THE YELLOW, BROWN, AND ORANGE. FOOTBALL GAME TONIGHT AND BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR OUR FORMER NEIGHBOR'S OLDER KIDS (THE TWINS OLDER BROTHER AND SISTER) ON SUNDAY. HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD WEEKEND!

MARCHEM, THAT IS SAD. MUST HAVE BEEN THINGS GOING ON THAT NO ONE KNEW ABOUT.
NO, THE KIDS DID NOT COME DRESSED APPROPRIATELY---THANKFULLY WE HAVE A STOCK OF EXTRA CLOTHING IN OUR LAUNDRY ROOM WHERE I WAS ABLE TO FIND EACH OF THEM AN ADDITIONAL SWEATSHIRT TO WEAR UNDER THEIR JACKETS ---ALL WITH HOODS WHICH THEY NEEDED. THANKFULLY I HAD MY MINNASOTA SWEATSHIRT WITH A NICE HOOD ON IT FOR ME. THE TEACHER WAS NOT APPROPRIATELY DRESSED AND COMPLAINED ABOUT THE COLD THE WHOLE TIME. THE KIDS HAD FUN BUT WITH OUR KIDS YOU KIND OF HAVE TO PUSH THEM TO DO THINGS. THEN WE WENT TO SAM'S CLUB AND I BOUGHT THEM ALL LUNCH---NICE TO BE ABLE TO GET THEM ALL PIZZA AND A DRINK FOR $2.50 EACH. i DO TEND TO SPOIL THEM WHEN I CAN.
WE ARE MEETING OUR SON TO LOOK AT THAT NEW SHED TO SEE IF HE APPROVES. WE ALSO HAVE OUR GD TODAY SINCE THERE IS NO SCHOOL HERE TODAY. STILL GOING TO BE WINDY BUT NOT AS STRONG AS YESTERDAY.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD FRIDAY!

SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT NANCY'S COMPUTER ISSUES. HOPE THEY CLEAR UP SOON. I WAS ALREADY MISSING HEARING FROM HER.

LECATES--HOPE THE KIDS DID LISTEN. I LOVE PUMPKIN PATCHES, BUT ONLY IF I'M DRESSED APPROPRIATELY. I ALWAYS USE UNSALTED BUTTER. THE CAKE ENDS UP LOOKING LIKE CORNBREAD, BUT IT'S SWEET AND VERY TASTY. THE CAKE IS GONE BETWEEN THE OFFICE AND HOME.

IT SHOULD BE A QUIET NIGHT TONIGHT FOR DH AND ME. DD HAS A GAME AND DS IS GOING TO A FUNERAL NEAR KANSAS CITY. DS GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL WITH THE BOY AND THE KID SEEMED TO HAVE EVERYTHING GOING RIGHT IN HIS LIFE. UNFORTUNATELY, HE COMMITTED SUICIDE LAST WEEK. JUST AWFUL. PRAYERS FOR THE FAMILY AND THE FRIENDS ARE APPRECIATED.

NANCY CALLED LAST NIGHT---HAVING SOME MAJOR COMPUTER ISSUES AND WAITING FOR HER DD TO COME OVER AND RUN SCANS AND REBOOT THE WHOLE THING FOR HER---SO IT MIGHT BE A FEW DAYS BEFORE SHE GETS BACK ON.
NOT GOING TO BE FUN AT THE PUMPKIN PATCH TODAY---VERY STRONG WINDS TODAY AND COOLER TEMPS. SURE HOPE THE KIDS LISTENED AND WEAR APPROPRIATE CLOTHING.

LECATES--I'M GLAD YOU ARE GETTING RAIN AND GOOD USE OUT OF YOUR NEW RAINCOAT!

I MADE MY AUNT'S COFFEE CAKE FOR MY MEETING TODAY. IT WENT OVER WELL. I ALSO BROUGHT A VEGGIE TRAY AND HUMMUS BECAUSE ONE OF MY CO-WORKERS IS DOING KETO. OF COURSE, HE WASN'T THERE TODAY, BUT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMED TO ENJOY THE VEGGIES AS WELL. THE COFFEE CAKE IS SUPER EASY. YOU BAKE A YELLOW CAKE IN A 13 X 9 INCH PAN BY PACKAGE DIRECTIONS. WHILE THE CAKE IS STILL WARM, MELT A STICK OF BUTTER ON THE CAKE (COAT THE WHOLE CAKE, IT TAKES A WHILE, BUT IT WILL ALL MELT IN), AND THEN SPRINKLE WITH CINNAMON AND SUGAR.

JOANNE--GLAD YOU HAD A GOOD THANKSGIVING! ROTEL IS DICED TOMATOES AND GREEN CHILIES. A TYPICAL CAN IS 10 OZ. YOU COULD PROBABLY SUBSTITUTE DICED TOMATOES, BUT IT WON'T BE AS SPICY.

LECATES--GLAD THAT OTHERS ARE NOTICING THE TEACHER'S BEHAVIOR. ALSO, GLAD YOU HAD A GOOD POOL WORKOUT. I MADE A PEACH PIE WITH A CRUMB TOPPING. DH HAS BEEN ASKING FOR ONE FOR A WHILE. I ALMOST MADE FRENCH SILK, BUT WE HAVE A BUNCH OF CHOCOLATE DESSERTS IN THE HOUSE, SO I WENT FOR THE PEACH ONE. IT TURNED OUT WELL.

LAST DAY OF FALL BREAK. WE HAVE KIND OF ADOPTED A STRAY CAT. WE'VE BEEN FEEDING HER AND LEAVING HER FOOD AND WATER ON THE PORCH. DH ALSO PUT OUT A BLANKET FOR HER. HE DOESN'T WANT HER IN THE HOUSE, BUT SHE'S A SWEET CAT AND SHE'S BEEN HUNTING THE MOLES IN THE YARD.

RAINING AND COOLER WEATHER TODAY AND BACK TO WORK TOMORROW.

GLAD TO SEE THAT POST, JOHNSON.
NANCY, WOOHOO TO HIGHER RAILINGS---SAFER ALL THE WAY AROUND NOW.
MARCHEM, WHAT KIND OF PIE?
JOANNE, SOUNDS LIKE THE PERFECT NUMBER OF PEOPLE----NOT TOO MANY BUT ENOUGH TO FEEL LIKE A CELEBRATION. ALTHOUGH i DON'T UNDERSTAND BRINGING ONE'S DOGS TO THESE EVENTS---BUT I AM NOT A DOG PERSON EITHER.
CRAZY TEACHER WAS OUT YESTERDAY---WHEN SHE KNEW SHE WASN'T GOING TO BE THERE TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. NOW OTHERS ARE STARTING TO NOTICE HOW MUCH SHE IS NOT HERE. GOOD POOL WORKOUT LAST NIGHT.

OH, EVELYN, NOW I WANT SOME TACO SOUP. I AM GOING TO SIT DOWN AND DO SOME MENU PLANNING! I LOOKED AT SOME RECIPES FOR THE SLICK DUMPLINGS. THERE ARE SEVERAL VARIATIONS, SOME ARE JUST NOODLES LIKE I MAKE THEM, BUT SOME ARE MADE MORE LIKE PASTRY... INTERESTING TO LEARN ABOUT REGIONAL VARIATIONS.

NANCY, GLAD TO HEAR THAT THE BALCONY IS ALMOST DONE, AND WE WONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT COLLAPSING UNDER YOU. HOORAY! HAPPY THANKSGIVING, BY THE WAY!

WE HAD THE FAMILY HERE FOR TURKEY DINNER YESTERDAY. DD#1 MADE TWO KINDS OF PIE, SO OF COURSE WE ALL HAD TO SAMPLE ONE PIECE OF EACH. I AM STILL FULL FROM YESTERDAY!! THE NEW PUPPY SURE HAD FUN PLAYING WITH ALL HER DOG-COUSINS, AND THEY ALL WORE ONE ANOTHER OUT. FIVE DOGS, TWO KIDS, AND SEVEN ADULTS - SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR!

JOANNE--I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE THANKSGIVING MEAL. I DON'T THINK I HAVE A FAVORITE--I LOVE ALL OF IT AND THE WAY IT ALL TASTES TOGETHER! ENJOY.

NANCY--GLAD THE BALCONY IS ALMOST DONE. ENJOY YOUR FAMILY TIME TOGETHER.

LECATES--GLAD IT'S COOLED DOWN. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON.

EVELYNN--HOPE THE PT HELPS AND THAT THEY CAN GIVE YOU A SHOT THAT WILL ALLEVIATE THE PAIN.

REJOHNSON--YOU ARE MOST WELCOME TO JOIN IN HERE. PLEASE CONTINUE! WE DIDN'T GET A FROST ON FRIDAY, LIKE WE WERE SUPPOSED TO. I'M ENJOYING STILL BEING ABLE TO PICK SOME TOMATOES (I PICKED ONE YESTERDAY AND ENJOYED IT IN A SALAD), BUT I AGREE, I WANT THE MOSQUITOES TO GO!

I ENDED UP NOT MAKING CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS. MY RECIPE IS A CROCKPOT ONE AND I DIDN'T GET ALL THE INGREDIENTS UNTIL TOO LATE IN THE DAY. SINCE IT WAS A STAY AT HOME DAY AND I HAD TIME TO COOK, I MADE ROTEL CHICKEN CASSEROLE INSTEAD. IT'S A HEARTY CASSEROLE WITH CHICKEN, ROTEL, PEPPERS, ONIONS, SPAGHETTI, VELVEETA, AND CREAM SOUP. IT'S GREAT ON A COLDER DAY. LEFTOVERS OF IT TONIGHT!

WE ENJOYED APPLE BUTTER MAKIN DAYS. WE GOT SOME FALL/HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS AND A CASE OF APPLE BUTTER. I GAVE MY NEIGHBOR A JAR AND SHE WAS SO PLEASED. HAD A NICE VISIT WITH HER, TOO. OFF OF WORK TODAY FOR FALL BREAK. I'M ABOUT TO MAKE A PIE.

Sorry to but in here but I was excited to have won fifty (50) team bonus points this Columbus Day morning, a "magnificent" Monday morning 14 October 2019..

I am still picking tomatoes this late in October - we have not had a frost yet and we need one to kill the EEE mosquitoes that are damaging peoples lives.

I will depart. Sorry to jump in like this.

It warm up again in the 70's. I MADE TACO SOUP ON THE SNOW DAY. IT WAS SO GOOD. I WILL START P.T. ON TUESDAY. HOPE IT WILL HELP SOME. I WANT TO GET SHOT TO HELP THE PAIN. TODAY I SPENT AN HOUR IN MY STEP IN TUB WITH THE JETS AND LIME GREEN WATER. IT TAKES 70 GALLONS OF WATER TO FILL IT. SO I DON'T DO IT TO OFTEN. MOST OF THE TIME I TAKE A SHOWER LOT FASTER.

START BY THE DOING WHAT'S NECESSARY, THEN WHAT'S POSSIBLE, AND SUDDENLY YOU ARE DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE.

MY GRANDKIDS ARE JUST 6 AND 3(ALMOST), SO THE BEST HELP THEY CAN GIVE IS TO PLAY NICELY TOGETHER! THEY WERE SO GOOD YESTERDAY, ARCHIE SPENT ALMOST AN HOUR PLAYING WITH TOYS IN THE TUB... HE WAS A PRUNE WHEN HE GOT OUT. AND ROSIE KEEPS THE PUPPY BUSY, SO IT WAS ALL GOOD!

MARCHEM, I HAVE NOT MADE DUMPLINGS FOR YEARS. YOU HAVE MADE ME YEARN FOR THEM. I USED TO COOK THEM ON TOP OF LAMB STEW, WHICH I ALSO HAVE NOT MADE FOR YEARS.

I DO ACTUALLY LOVE COOKING THE BIG THANKSGIVING MEAL, AND DD#1 IS DOING DESSERTS. EVERYBODY HAS THEIR FAVOURITE PART OF THE MEAL: DH AND DD#1 LOVE STUFFING, SIL LOVES GRAVY, DD#2 LOVES SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE, ROSIE AND I LOVE JELLO CRANBERRY SALAD, ARCHIE LOVES TURKEY... AND SO ON.

I STILL HAVENT GOT MY YARD AND GARDEN CLEANED UP - THAT IS THE GOAL FOR NEXT WEEK. WE HAVE BEEN LUCKY AND MISSED MOST OF THE SNOW, SO THERE IS STILL A CHANCE I WILL GET IT DONE!

LECATES--ENJOY THE GREENHOUSE. IT'S A LITTLE BITTERSWEET THAT ITS PROBABLY YOUR LAST VOLUNTEER SHIFT OF THE YEAR THERE. I AGREE ABOUT COOKING THE BIG MEAL. I REALLY DO ENJOY IT. CHILI SOUNDS GOOD, BUT I'LL WAIT A FEW WEEKS BEFORE I THINK I'LL BE READY FOR CHILI AGAIN.

NANCY--I'M GLAD THEY ARE MAKING PROGRESS ON THE BALCONY.

NOT SURE WHICH DAY WE'RE GOING TO APPLE BUTTER MAKIN DAYS. WE MAY GO TOMORROW WHEN THERE PROBABLY WILL BE LESS PEOPLE. HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY!

WE DON'T USUALLY DO MUCH, I USUALLY GO TO MY DAUGHTER'S FOR SUPPER.. THE OTHER 2 DAUGHTERS THINK MORE OF THEIR FRIENDS THAN FAMILY. IN THE STATES THANKSGIVING IS THE KICK OFF FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON, NOT HERE

THE MEN ARE BACK THIS MORNING SO MAYBE THE BALCONY WILL ACTUALLY BE FINISHED TODAY,, THEY ONLY HAVE THE RAMPS AND THE FINISHING EDGES TO DO..RIGHT NOW THEY ARE DOING UPSTAIRS

MY GRANDDAUGHTER WILL BE HERE LATER AS WE DO HAVE SHOPPING TO DO AND SHE WILL CLIP MISSY'S NAILS FOR ME,.I WOULD NOT EVEN TRY TO DO THEM DUE TO MY EYES, I STILL HAVE A BIT OF SEWING TO DO SO I HAD BETTER GET DRESSED, HAVE BREAKFAST AND GET ON THE GO
HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL emoticon

OKAY, I AM GOING TO MARCHEM'S HOUSE FOR CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS AND THEN TO JOANNE'S HOUSE FOR TURKEY AND ALL THE TRIMMINGS---YUM!
MARCHEM, SOUNDS LIKE A NICE WEEKEND AHEAD FOR YOU. I SHOULD PLAN ON COOKING SOME NICE FOR THE WEEKEND---HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING CHILI.
NANCY, HOPE THEY HAD A NICE SURPRISE FOR YOU. SO WHAT DO YOU ALL DO FOR THANKSGIVING SINCE NO ONE TOOK OVER THE PREP AFTER YOU QUIT? I LOVE COOKING UP A BIG THANKSGIVING DINNER WITH ALL THE FIXINGS BUT THEN I DON'T HAVE A TON OF PEOPLE COME SO IT'S NOT SO BAD ACTUALLY , I THINK I MIGHT TAKE OUT THE TURKEY I HAVE IN THE FREEZER AND COOK IT UP NEXT WEEKEND SO THAT I HAVE TURKEY FOR MEALS IN THE FREEZER.
MIGHT DIG UP THOSE SWEET POTATOES TODAY TO SEE HOW THEY DID. WITH THE DROUGHT THEY MIGHT NOT BE THAT BIG BUT HOPE THEY ARE EDIBLE.
GOING TO THE GREEN HOUSES TODAY---PROBABLY LAST TIME UNLESS I GO HELP ON A SATURDAY WHEN POINSETTIAS ARE AVAILABLE.

EVELYNN-GOOD PLAN TO CANCEL YOUR PT APPT. NO SENSE GOING OUT IN THE SNOWY/ICY MESS, ESPECIALLY SINCE IT WILL MELT SOON.

LECATES--GLAD YOU ARE FEELING BETTER!

NANCY--HAPPY BIRTHDAY! GLAD THE DECK IS PROGRESSING AND WILL BE DONE SOON.

JOANNE--HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FAMILY. DH AND I DIVIDE AND CONQUER THE BIG THANKSGIVING MEAL AND THE KIDS HELP. IT'S A LOT OF WORK, BUT I ENJOY THE TIME TOGETHER IN THE KITCHEN AND THE GOOD FOOD.

NANCY AND JOANNE--HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

MONDAY AND TUESDAY ARE MY SCHOOL'S FALL BREAK, SO I'M LOOKING AT A LONG WEEKEND. TRYING TO GET A FEW THINGS SQUARED AWAY BEFORE I LEAVE IT BEHIND UNTIL WEDNESDAY. DH, DD, AND I PLAN ON GOING TO APPLE BUTTER MAKING DAYS IN MOUNT VERNON, MO. IT'S A FUN FALL FESTIVAL AND THEY MAKE APPLE BUTTER ON THE TOWN SQUARE IN A GIANT COPPER KETTLE. IT'S PREDOMINATELY A CRAFT FESTIVAL BESIDES THAT, SOME MUSIC, AND FOOD VENDORS. I'M ALSO LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING SOME FALL FAVORITES THIS WEEKEND (CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS AND A ROTEL CHICKEN CASSEROLE). HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NANCY! I BET THE BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT OF ALL WILL BE HAVING THE BALCONY REPLACED! HOORAY!

IT IS ALSO MY SIL'S BIRTHDAY TODAY. HE IS HAVING A BIG SHINDIG AT THEIR HOUSE WITH A ROAST BEEF DINNER. EVERYONE IS BRINGING SOMETHING, EXCEPT HE IS COOKING THE ROAST. I AM TAKING GOLDEN BEETS, AND WILL MAKE THE GRAVY.

IT IS THANKSGIVING WEEKEND HERE IN CANADA, WHICH MEANS HOUSEGUESTS FOR ME AND A HUGE TURKEY DINNER ON SUNDAY FOR THE FAMILY. I HAVE SO MUCH PREP TO DO DAY, PLUS HAVE THE GRANDKIDS.. SHOULD BE INTERESTING...

NANCY--GLAD THE BALCONY IS BEING FIXED AND THEY WEREN'T THERE TOO EARLY!

LECATES--GLAD IT'S RAINING AND COOLER.

DH HAS BEEN MENTIONING THAT HE SHOULD BE MORE ACTIVE. WHEN I GOT HOME FROM WORK YESTERDAY, I SUGGESTED WE GO FOR A WALK. HE HATES WALKING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD (BUSY STREETS AND NO SIDEWALKS). I TOLD HIM WE COULD GO TO A PARK OR THE MALL. HE WANTED TO TRY THIS NEW GREEK PLACE IN THE MALL, SO WE WALKED THE MALL AND HAD GREEK FOOD. HE WON'T WALK AS FAST AS I WOULD LIKE, BUT AT LEAST WE WERE BOTH MOVING. ALSO GOT DS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT WHILE WE WERE THERE. I HAVE WALKED FOR AT LEAST 8,000 STEPS FOR THE LAST 15 DAYS. TRYING TO GET TO 25 DAYS IN A ROW. I'M CURRENTLY AT OVER 4,000 STEPS MIDDAY, SO I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT.

JOANNE, CUTE! SORRY YOUR WEATHER IS NOT COOPERATING, BUT ISN'T THE PATTERN KIND OF NORMAL FOR YOUR AREA?
MARCHEM, WE HAVE A NORTHEASTER GOING ON HERE---SO LOTS OF WIND AND FINALLY SOME RAIN---NOT GREAT FOR BEACH EROSION THOUGH----BUT I AM HAPPY WITH THE COOL TEMPS AND THE MUCH NEEDED RAIN.
NICE NIGHT OUT WITH RED HATS LAST NIGHT---TONIGHT IS THE POOL.

JOANNE--THE PUPPY IS ADORABLE.

NANCY--I'M SO HAPPY ABOUT THE BALCONY! I THOUGHT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE DONE IN SEPTEMBER. OH, WELL, AT LEAST THEY'VE STARTED.

COOLER HERE, HIGH'S ARE GETTING INTO THE LOW 70'S AND LOWS ARE IN THE 40'S. I'M LOVING IT. WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GET A COLD FRONT THURSDAY NIGHT (PROBABLY AFTER YOU GET IT EVELYNN) WITH A LOT OF RAIN AND MUCH COOLER TEMPS. THE HIGH FRIDAY IS IN THE 40'S, BUT NO FROST YET.

YES LECATES EVERYTHING WAS FINE AT THE DERMATOLOGIST,, THERE WERE A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT I WAS FOREVER PICKING AT,, AND SINCE IT HAD BEEN A YEAR SHE TREATED THEM, I WILL HAVE TO LEARN TO STOP PICKING emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon THEY ARE STARTING THE BALCONY TOMORROW,, I MUST SAY THAT IT IS ABOUT TIME AND I AM DOING THE HAPPY DANCE,, THERE WAS A LOT OF WATER ON THE BALCONY YESTERDAY DUE TO A BIG STORM OVERNIGHT ON SUNDAY AND I WAS WONDERING IF I WAS GOING TO HAVE A SKATING RINK RATHER THAN A POOL.. I HAVE A COUPLE OF THINGS ON THE BALCONY SO I HAVE TO GET THEM OFF TODAY,, I WILL BRING MY BIG ROCKER IN WHILE THEY ARE WORKING THEN PUT IT OUT AGAIN.. THERE ARE STILL NICE DAYS THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO SIT OUT IN THE SUN. A COUPLE OF THINGS HAVE TO GO IN THE GARDEN SHACK TOO

JOANNE THAT PUPPY IS ADORABLE,, HAD I HAD A CLOSED IN AREA I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN ANOTHER, BUT WALKING ON ICY SURFACES DURING THE WINTER,..NOOOOOOOOOOOO,, I CANNOT DO THAT ANYMORE,

TAKE CARE EVERYONE,, I AM OFF TO CLEAR THE BALCONY WHILE THE SUN IS THERE emoticon

LOCATION,, QUEBEC, CANADA
