Nola: Happy oneth of September to you!!!!! Happy Spring. Enjoy it!! I know you will.

Wishing you and Don all the best w/the appointments.

Yes, it is really mentally wearing to get him convinced,but he started to admit it today. Lots of phone calls to make tomorrow, but we'll get things straightened out. You know, they did so much for us growing up, now it's our turn.

Happy September emoticon everyone. Our first day of Spring emoticon in Oz.

Barb - Glad you had a good trip.....sad you have to have the convincing of your Dad to do. He must be starting to realise it is inevitable. It is so hard letting go and realizing that it has to be. Thinking of you. emoticon

I'll be back later. This is Dons week of appointments. Today is the first one so must look lively and get on with it.

HI guys. Just a quick check in. We just got back from our visit. It was uneventful travelling, fortunately. Mom & Dad are in pretty good shape. Mom's memory is very, very bad. **SIGH** Just have to get Dad convinced they HAVE TO MOVE HERE. **SIGH** It is just getting to that point. So . . . . gotta make some calls.

Morning!

Stringing beans and making a meatloaf on this fine Sunday.

Wanted to share one of my favorite new groups, Home Free. I cheered them on as they won The Sing Off show. They are an acapella group, so no instruments, except their own voices. I find them to be amazing.

Enjoy!

Yesterday, I did more pressure washing on the driveway, and actually completed the whole thing, except for under the food truck. That will have to wait until it is in driving condition. My husband offered to move it by pushing it, but I told him that wasn't necessary. Sweet offer! I thought it was going to take a long time, based on the previous day's work. But, DH suggested using a detergent specific for cleaning driveways and sidewalks, and we bought some at Lowe's yesterday. It sure worked great! I think I will probably do the disgusting sidewalk next.

Today, I am hoping to get a pedicure with Joan in the afternoon. I may also get some of the yard work done, if there is time. Otherwise, I'll do it tomorrow morning. This evening, DH and I will drive to the Orlando Airport to pick up DS2. He will be returning home from his Philadelphia gaming adventure. He plans to go again and, when he does, maybe he can check out some of the sights, like the Liberty Bell. I'm not sure how close that is to where he is staying.

****************************************
BARB – I'm with you, gray/white, curly/wiry hair is definitely better than no hair! I hope you have safe travels and a wonderful visit with your parents!

CAROL – Thank you for all the support! Yes, I would like to continue the trekking, thank you!

KAREN – Hope your bat wings take flight with Nola's! Thank you for the encouragement!

LOIS – Those playful dogs were an added bonus to your coffee group meeting! What kind of pups were they?

NOLA – Thank you for the links to the meat-pies; they look yummy! Good luck with sending your bat wings to fly away. Thank you for the supportive comments!

WENDY – At least you can enjoy the occasional banana without hurting your kidneys. I like dark chocolate also, but still not as much as milk or white chocolates.

Hi Nola, I bought the Cadbury Gold chocolate. 70%. I saw the Lindts, I may try that one next time. I think that was 85%. and that was the highest we have.

Have a lovely visit with your parents Barb.

Wendy that is sad about the bananas. I just love them as well. Good you got your dark chocolate. Which brand did you get? Did you see Lindts out there? It is funny how our tastes change. I am just not interested in sweet or salty things any more.
Hope you had a good day. emoticon

Barb I had Don take a before photo of my bat wings.........so gross. emoticon I am going to do everything I am hearing for the next 6 months and will take another photo and see if they look any different. that has been the only downside of this weight losing business.

Nicole forget about the last Challenge, that is in the past. Lets all concentrate on the new one. You are a great friend to power wash Joans house. Your driveway is going to look so smart. WTG being a blood donor.

Hi Tricia emoticon

Nicole, bananas have too much potassium in them for my poor old kidneys. So when I buy any I only buy one otherwise I will eat them. Love them. emoticon

Carol, the chicken boullion sounds like a great idea.

Barb, I am going to start what you said about bat wings. Thanks for that hint.

Carol, I love the trek but I know it takes time. It would be okay to me to extend the time and distances. By doing these challenges helps to keep me accountable to me and everyone else in the team.

Bought my dark chocolate, it is not as bad as I remember. My tastes have changed since I last tasted it many years ago.

Don't know what happened yesterday! After I went to bed I realized that I hadn't signed in to Sparks. I really wasn't that busy. Did some volunteer time at church, did a little shopping, and came home. I guess because I was not signing in for such a long time that it has not become a daily routine to follow. I am trying!

Coffee group met today as usual, but not at Starbucks. Lovely home, beautiful landscaping, and as usual great conversations along with playing with her three dogs.

Sending good vibes and prayers for a lovely Sunday and a great coming week.

emoticon Fantastic idea, Nicole, to do a drive by blood donation. Not only convenient, but you get movie tickets! giggling here at how much I like the idea. You WILL be back on track this 5%, my friend. I'll be looking for you on fb to give you a motivator talk, just like the one you gave me when I needed it. You will prevail.

emoticon Ok, Nola, gotta have the meat pie recipe.

emoticon Karen, glad you are not 'baking' yourself and the AC is back.

emoticon to you, Lynn. We will be here.

emoticon to everyone else. Heading out to the gym. Had a day off yesterday. Saw The Giver at the movie. Had not read the series, but enjoyed the movie and looking forward to the next. Very thought-provoking.

emoticon Trekkers,
The Pied Piper will be putting out our next city later than usual. I'm thinking that it would be great to keep this Walk Across America going and maybe lengthening time between destinations would be one way.

We have been trekking for 17 weeks. If we continue at 1 destination a week, we'll whiz through. There are a few of us consistently participating. How about 1 every two weeks? It would give me more time to prepare as well. Do you want to continue? Your ideas?

Bottomline, the Pied Piper is in it to win it. Would like to go on indefinitely. Your thoughts?

Have a great w/e, all.

Be back later,
Lady Carol emoticon

Saturday – Yesterday the humidity was baaaaaaack. UGH But not as bad as it’d been. Rain expected today, so trying to get the outside chores done first. Glad we’re traveling on Sunday as it’s supposed to be sunny and better weather.

Ready for a 3 day weekend! Hope y’all have a great weekend. HUGS

Karen: Glad you’re getting you’re A/C back! Uh oh . . . DQ’s . . . definitely devilish! LOL

Carol: YIKEROOS!!! That’s fabulous! Lbs. and inches released. AWESOME! You are rocking this! Very proud of your accomplishments!

I have found good old fashioned arm circles help with the darned “bat wings!” Extend your arms straight out to the side. 15 circles forward, 15 backward and repeat. Takes time but it works over time. Now when I wave my bat wings aren’t continuing to wave as long. Thanks for the video!!!

Dorothy: Travel safely. Enjoy your visit. I know you will! Hope you get the answers on the hormones. **SGH** It’s a journey, isn’t it, taking care of the health!

Nola: Got the cake made. PHEW. Not long to put it together, but takes 1 hr. and 5 minutes to bake.

Lynn: ((((HUGS))))

Eliza: Hope you have a new adventure!

Nicole: Good luck to DH selling on Craigs List and eBay. Hope he’s successful.

Glad you were able to power wash in fron of your house too. And glad your friend appreciated your efforts.

Not sure why gray/white hair tends to be a little more coarse, wiry and/or curly, but I’ll take it, as long I have hair! LOL

Windy: Have fun camping. Have safe travels.

Tricia: Have a good visit w/family!

Wendy: Thanks for the heads up re: Susie. **SIGH** Prayers.

My aura is gold. The description on the page that has all the different aura colors doesn't sound quite right, but the one one the result page is closer:
Your aura is gold. Those with gold auras are often watched over by another soul or spirit. You lead a charmed life and tend to take the high road in arguments. You don’t get bogged down by everyday problems. Enlightened, calm, and transcendent are words often used to describe people with gold auras.

It seems that we really do make up a rainbow!
Red – Karen
Yellow – Barbara
Green – Nola & Lady Carol
Orange – Wendy
Violet – Barb
Blue – Lois
Gold - Nicole
White – Eliza
All we are missing is pink, brown, and black. Perhaps there are some in our group that are pink who haven't taken the quiz, yet. Glad nobody turned out to be one the remaining negative colors!

Sadly, instead of losing 5% on our challenge, I did the opposite. Gained exactly 5%; unbelievable. So, my goal for the current challenge is pretty much just to get back to where I was at the start of the last challenge. Sheesh!

This morning, I have two flute lessons and I plan to spend some time power-washing our driveway. After cleaning the front of Joan's house, it inspired me to do some cleaning in front of our house. I started the driveway yesterday and the contrast between the clean and dirty is remarkable. It will take a few days to get it all done, I think, as I don't want to spend more than an hour or two at a time working on it.

I have been a blood donor for decades, but I did something different yesterday. I donated at the bloodmobile bus; a first for me. I was motivated to do it there because they were giving away two free movie tickets. My father donated yesterday, also, but at the blood center I usually go to. He didn't get movie tickets, but he got a beautiful t-shirt. He never goes to the movie theatre anyway, so will enjoy the shirt much more. I really liked the shirt, but I have so many already! And, I really want to see Guardians of the Galaxy!

****************************************
BARB – My friend, Joan, was SUPER appreciative of the power-washing I did on her house. She had had a tough day at work and it was a nice surprise for her to come home to see. I did get to do my nails a couple days ago; now I just need that pedi! I am envious of your lack of humidity! I have been surprised at how nice the produce section has become at WalMart. Used to be that Publix couldn't be beat in that area, but WalMart is pretty darn close! I hope you have a great time with your parents tomorrow.

BARBARA – During our summer months, it is much too hot to take afternoon walks, also. Morning and evenings are best, though I do see plenty of people in the afternoon. I don't know how they, or their dogs, can stand the high heat and humidity!

CAROL – Wow! That painted bridge really is amazing! How wonderful that you got to enjoy walking there. My son is having a great time in Philadelphia (he is there for a video game competition). My older is quite the traveler, also. He actually started at a much earlier age; he has been all over the country (mostly the East Coast), as well as Russia (St. Petersburg and Ekaterinburg), France (Paris), and Poland (Warsaw). Congratulations on your amazing weight loss!

DOROTHY – I hope you finish adjusting to your meds soon, and that your dryness has gone away. How horrible that nausea has set in, also. Ugh! I hope you are feeling well today and enjoying your time with the grandchildren.

ELIZA – Love your white aura!

KAREN – Great that you and your neighbor monitor each other's WISE goals! I hope your furnace and A/C are working in tip-top shape now! Lol about your mother and you getting ready for the construction men! Did you find the SparkWheel? The Ctrl-F feature still works for me; have you tried it again?

LOIS – It's nice that you are enjoying some books with your book club! I am not much of a reader; I know I am missing out on a lot.

LYNN – I hope your mood improves very soon.

NOLA – Yes, DS2 is my youngest child. I have two sons, DS1 is 24, DS2 is 18.

TRICIA – Nice to see you! Wow, you are a busy woman!

WENDY – Thank you for the cauliflower recipe link! Congratulations on your weight loss! Why are you not supposed to have banana?

WINDY – I hope you have a great weekend at the campsite! Prayers sent your way.

Carol thanks for the flabby arms links. I think I should take some before and after photos. emoticon I will add that routine in my daily moving. I think I could incorporate my resistance band with that.

Eliza it is lovely having an angel in our midst. Your white Aura explanation sounds beautiful. Let us know when the new experience happens. emoticon

Windy have fun camping. I hope you have beautiful weather. emoticon

Karen how is the furnace/AC installation going? do you just have to go back to Dairy Queen.........again.........damn? emoticon

Barb it is great your Mum has taken to her new Dr. It is not easy changing from the familiar to someone new.

Have everyone put in their finishing weight in the last, and the starting weight in the new Challenge? emoticon

I have a morning baking. Making a batch of single person meat pies for Don that can be frozen. So I had better hop to it.

Have a good evening/day.

My aura is white which is a sign of purity and intelligence. You are open to new ideas, experiences, and people. You’re also likely very spiritual and may often be called “an angel” by your friends. A white aura can be a sign that you are about to embark on a new experience.

Good idea, Nola,

Here are examples of what my PT showed me. In the first video, the women is doing ones he showed me, but he had me use 5 lb weights.

He had me do one where I held a 10 lb ball over my head and lowered it back behind my head. Couldn't find a video of that yet, but it felt really good.

Enjoy! Goodbye jiggly!!

Happy Friday, everyone,

emoticon Good workout session with the PT. I have lost 10 lbs, 3" in tummy, 3" in waist and 1" in hips, plus more in all those other areas....lol. The more spots he measured, the better my hard work looked. Definitely, going to keep this up another 4 weeks. He added more floor weights. I requested ones for jiggly arms. Think there is such a miracle exercise?

emoticon Karen, hope the AC is back, but the Dairy Queen sounds like a good plan to me.

emoticon Dorothy, travel safely and enjoy those grandbabes.

emoticon Barb, enjoy time with your parents. Good news that you Mom liked the new dr. Maybe because she can relate to a woman. I tend to like women drs.

emoticon Wendy, eager to see your your cauliflower experiment turns out. I'm going to add some chicken boullion to mine next time.

Heading off to make plans on how to get out and enjoy this beautiful day. Hope you are enjoying yours.

Lady Carol emoticon

Dear friends, be safe, and happy out there emoticon emoticon

Red Aura for me:
You thrive in exciting situations and are quick to fall in love and lust. Spontaneous, passionate, and energetic, you tend to follow your heart, even when it leads you to the wildest, untamed places. Though you occasionally act immature, you only mean to make yourself and others happy.

Nola and Barb emoticon I found the wheel, now if I can make the Ctrl/F buttons work again (I us it on our Weight in link)

that reminds me I better go look for the new one emoticon emoticon

I am blue - makes perfect sense to me as blues are my favorite colors.

Barb - it feels like fall here as well - love the cooler temps for sleeping.

The meds are improving other than I am very nauseated at the moment - hope it passes.

Headed to Buffalo tomorrow to watch my grandkids while my daughter goes to a wedding.

Friday – What a change in weather. It was almost like a bit of Fall is in the air. Felt good! I have no complaints about the temperatures – in the 70’s. Just perfect! Today we're back to the humidity.

Mom and Dad are looking forward to our visit on Sunday. Me too. Last time they were in pretty good shape and think it will be the same this time. Their cardiologist retired, so they have a new one whom they just met yesterday. I was surprised that Mom liked her so well. Usually she doesn’t like having to get to know a new Dr. I don’t blame her for that.

Well, have to get busy and make the rum cake for Dad.

Have a great weekend and if you’re traveling, be safe.

Lois: It was cool here w/low humidity yesterday too, but not today!

Dorothy: Hope that the med issue is improving!

Nola: HOPE you like the mash. Have a great weekend.!

Barbie: I love experimenting and “playing” with my food! LOL

Wendy: That is my most comfortable temps – on the low 70’s. Enjoy. Hope your winter is finished early! HOPE ours isn’t a lingering one like last winter. UGH UGH UGH!!!

my aura is orange.

Another wonderful day here today, will be in the high 20's C (high 70's d F) until Monday then it drops down to 21C for the day them back up. I think winter is finished early. At least I have defrosted out. LOL.

I have bought my cauliflower. Was busy yesterday and made myself a fruit salad, mainly with the fruit I am allowed to have but I did put a small banana in it. I am not going to tell anyone. I have 100 g at the time.

Lost more weight this week, a total of 1.5 kgs or just over 3 lbs.

My aura: Blue - which is one of my favorite colors. Those test are fun and even sometimes gets it right.

Today has been another low key day. Cloudy, cool and low humidity which makes for a slow moving day for me. Started to weed out papers and hard to believe all that I keep saving. Finished my Daniel Silva book and started on the next book for book club - The Sandcastle Girls. It is a rather depressing book and not sure who choose it because it is about Armenian genocide. It supposedly fiction, but sure there is more truth in it than fiction. When we have one of these books, it is always a challenge as to rather I want to read it. But I do read it because I can be part of the discussion and know how the others felt.

Signing off for the evening!

I am also a James Paterson fan - I have two other favorites but right now my mind is blank - messed up my meds and I am a mess. I am so dry - my mouth,my nose, everything!

Nola - I would love to golf in the fall but don't becasue the bowling league starts up.

Yes I eat breakfast every day - always have!

Thursday – gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! The temps moderated and the humidity . . . gone. I’ll take it!

Well, we were lucky. Jason had to have his car serviced. It looked like he’d need 4 new tires, but they were able to grind the rims, pack them, and no new tires . . . yet anyway. PHEW. So glad of that.

I had to make a run to Wal-Mart yesterday. I am impressed, at least so far, with the freshness and pricing of their freggies. Seems always out of freggies here – that’s a good thing!

Here’s to a great Thursday. Almost to the weekend – almost!

Karen: You can find the wheel on both your Start page AND the spark points page. For sure, the one on the start page is quite small!

Good luck with the HVAC system installation!

Wendy: That was good advice your Dr. gave you about eating breakfast!

Nola: I love steel cut oats! I put whatever fruit I have in it, too . . . especially berries (which are lower in sugar than things like bananas, peaches, etc. although I love those too! Just have to eat them in a lesser quantity.

Just for you. I use the recipe as a guide. You can add chives, sour cream, thick greek yogurt. All good. IF you have it in your nutrition count, you can even add cheese! Anything I'd put on a baked potato is fair game.

Karen the spinning wheel is tiny and in the Right hand top corner.
I hope the next few days with the furnace etc goes without a hitch.

Lois there is a new Lee Child book out called Personal. have just put myself down on the Library waiting list for it. I haven't read any Daniel Silva, I must check him out at the library. Love John Grisham and James Patterson and am always waiting for their next books.

Carol what a lovely River walk. Thanks for the link. You certainly live in a beautiful area.

Question for reflection.......Breakfast always for as long as I can remember. Nowadays it is fruit and Greek Yogurt and 2 cups of black tea. About twice a week oatmeal, sliced banana and Greek Yougurt. Then I am fueled up for the rest of my day.

Have been checking out mashed cauliflower recipes and will try some.

Don't forget weigh in tomorrow.

Good evening to all! I have read all the chats, but because I am trying to limit the amount of time on the computer I probably will not be responding to all.

I have a had a rather do nothing day, but did try to get some exercising in. Reading one of my favorite author's latest book "The Heist" by Daniel Silva. I have kind of lost my interest in mysteries, but his I like as well as anything by Lee Childs. I was always a Sanford and Patterson fan, but not so much lately.

Lady Carol , what a lovely day you had. I know what you mean about breakfast. I never used to eat it, but now it is how I start my day. I am no very inventive though some kind of fruit, hard boiled egg, 1/2 muffin and coffee. It is pretty much the same everyday and that way I don't have to think about it.

Signing off for the night.
