Eva you want a "Zanzibar gem", ("ZZ plant", "Zuzu plant" or emerald palm.) Lowes has them.

My monsters leave it alone.
Peace Lilly or Philodendron. ... but my monsters eat the peace lilly. But i have found if I give them a hand full of lettuce the tend to leave the peace lilly alone.

KURTZIE I have a friend that starts counting down to Christmas on December 26, seriously. She says we have 12 weeks left. It does seem like we did just have Christmas. I would like to be 12 pounds lighter by then

KALIGIRL my clean eating would be going great if I stayed away from the cookies and twix bars. LOL!! I pretty much eat that way all the time, I was just needing ideas for something different. you know, some fresh ideas. and maybe a plan. .... instead of just winging it. Hope you have a great trip!

Hubby says yes he will go look at Paris Tn to see if it's a place he would like to move too!! Short story ... my family lives here and they no longer like me and my older brother, we have morals and manners. So I'm having a hard time dealing with the loss of my family and what it was, so I want to move away. Paris is about 60 miles from where I am now. and where they are. We can't completely move till hubby retires in 4 years, but we can buy a vacation house in 2, so I'm looking. My 2 kids will go where ever I go.
No plans for today, other than getting in my 45 minute walk, ... and getting some coffee!
Hope you guys have an awesome day!


Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

Kali: We hope to see you soon! Enjoy your trip!

Feline and Becky: Do either of you keep house plants? I'm looking for safe ones for the cats or ones they just won't bother, like a cactus. Any suggestions?

Just stopping in to say HI and wish you all a great day. Can't believe August is coming to an end. 117 days until Christmas. It's amazing how fast time is going, I feel like I just celebrated Christmas and the New Year.

Eva - love the idea of group costumes and emoticon to Breanna for passing her test.

Feline - WTG on the 16 lbs. Glad to hear the scan went well, but sorry to hear about Halloween - Like Eva, it's one of my favorite holidays...

Joyce - hope you're enjoying your 28 days of gratitude.

Becky - how's the Eat Clean diet coming?

I'm loving my iPhone wallet, but not sure I'm going to take it on the trip as I'm so used to the lightweight travel 'purse' I've used for years. And speaking of travel, I most likely won't 'see' you all until after the 17th.
Have a super couple weeks!

Feline: I'm glad your scan showed your progress. Maybe DH lost his in an area that's not really visible to scans?

Halloween has always been big in my family. My grandparents lived with my mom and me, my uncle lived next door. He had 5 kids. We didn't usually buy costumes. We had to create them from something we found at a yard sale or clothing about to be discarded. Then we had a family contest before we all headed out. I had a knack for building costumes. I think I lost 1 year LOL. I suppose that's why I don't mind doing family costumes now. I still prefer to build them from thrift store finds or my closet. My enthusiasm for Halloween almost rivals Christmas.

Brenna's tryouts went well. She passed both portions of her test. I happen to know 2 kids in her grade that did not finish. One failed the written test and the other didn't shelve her books in the allotted time. They had 5 minutes. Brenna finished hers in 3. We will know next week if she made the squad. There were about 50 kids trying out for roughly 10 spots.

Today is my stepdad's last kidney surgery for a while. Thank the heavens above for that one. He has to be at the hospital at 10 am.

Eva: How cute! And Mrs. Weasley would be another fun one to dress as!
The body scans went really well. I've lost a lot of inches, and comparing the images you could really tell I've been making progress, especially in my thighs and arms. My husband made a little progress, too. It was harder to see visually but the numbers were there.

Essentiallyme: I didn't go trick or treating until I was in junior high when a boyfriend took me out. I went again with a friend when she had a baby, but at that point I think I was just too old to really find it fun. My parents didn't believe in Halloween so we were taken out of school and locked in the house with the shades drawn that day when I was a child.

Eva .. LOVE MOLLY WEASLEY!!! and their crazy house!

Kurtzie .... thankfully my 2 dogs are very submissive, Nora, the Queen was born feral and doesn't know when to stop or back off.

My oldest, Josh, only went trick or treating twice, my youngest was going to go once, but got chicken pox and couldn't go. But her wonderful big brother took her bucket with him and told everybody she was at home crying because she couldn't go, so she got double in her bucket. ... and she shared with her awesome big brother. Josh has never liked costumes, so we've never really been big on Halloween.

I finally got my second diet food book in yesterday. It's Tosca Reno's first Eat Clean diet. The first was the cook book. Now to read them.

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

Becky: I'm not stern enough to be a McGonagall LOL. But I think I could pull off the goofy that is Trelnewey. I first told her I'd go as Molly Weasley LOL. I love Molly. Maybe it's because she's such a Momma Bear.

Feline: We've done family costumes often in the past. Brenna's favorite book was "Bad Kitty" so one year we were Bad Kitty (Brenna), Poor Puppy (Jim), and Pretty Kitty (me). In hindsight, I wish I had gone as Strange Kitty. We've gone as a band of monsters, 1950's zombies, and pirates. We've gone as witches and a wizard, but never in a Hogwarts theme.

How were the body scans?

Kurtzie: Where is the gratitude course? Do you have a link or is it somewhere local?

I hope today finds you all doing very well. My weekly weigh in is tomorrow. I'm hoping to see the scale has dropped another pound! I have finally gotten the leg cramps under control. Let's hope they stay that way.

Eva: I can never get my husband to do a couples costume with me, I'd love it if he did! And Trelawney would be so fun!

We're getting body scanned again today to see how we've made progress in the last 6 weeks. My husband hasn't gained any weight, but hasn't lost any either, so we're hoping he's toned up a bit. I've lost 16lbs since the last scan (almost entirely water weight), and dropped from a M shirt to a S shirt, so I hope to see that reflected.

Eva ... you're probably right about the Queen and "off with their heads"
Trelawney .... really? I would much rather be McGonagall. ... she can turn into a cat and do really cool magic. Trelawney reads tea leaves. USED tea leaves!
Glad Brenna is better.

Becky: Your Queen is definitely loving her throne. I hear the Queen of Hearts in my head "Off With their heads!"

Kali: will the wallet help keep the phone cool?

Brenna's no longer dizzy, but her cheek is a lovely shade of green. She says it's getting close to Halloween so her inner zombie must be peaking out.

Speaking of which, I think she wants us to do a group costume again this year. She wants to go as Hermine Granger and told me I would make a nice Professor McGonagall. LOL! I told her I'd make a better Trelawney LOL

And Becky - the queen is definitely on her throne

Seriously, be sure to see the doctor if the dizziness remains. It’s a sign of post concussion syndrome.

I ordered an iPhone ‘wallet’ from Amazon for the trip. The good news about having an old phone is the accessories are cheap!

Eva ... Oh no poor Brenna! I'm glad that she is ok.
Changing a diet is so much fun. .... especially when dealing men of a certain age.

Kali .. I hate that your phone is being a jerk and acting up. You have more patience than I do. I would have broke it just so I could get a new one. ... And told my hubs that the cat knocked it off the table.

Speaking of cats .....

The QUEEN is on her throne ... you may kneel and kiss my paw .... servant.

Kali: I think that would be a good idea. It's always better safe than sorry.

Brenna fell Wednesday night and bumped her cheek on the dresser when she tripped over a cat. Bless her she has a black eye and her cheek is pretty swollen. I immediately put ice on it and gave her ibuprofen. We repeated the ice before bed, then again before school yesterday. I ended up having to go pick her up. I took her to the doctor to be checked out. Nothing is broken. He cannot rule out a slight concussion but says she's just as likely dizzy from swelling putting pressure on her sinus cavity. She returns to school today. Bless it.

I told her she could always say it was a Ninja cat since she didn't know he had snuck into the room until she tripped on him

Feline - the phone is heating up more than I remember, but it's an iPhone 6 and we all complained because they slowed the processor down to save the battery. It's a fast phone with the new iOS system, but I guess we either get hot or fast...
Eva - emoticon on Day 10! We are both blessed to have missed the addiction gene.
I'm glad you are not making sweets and both you and Bug are such bakers. (A skill that also skipped my profile...)
emoticon
The Apple advisor was more than helpful and I ended up taking the phone back to factory settings before restoring. Scary process, especially since it gave me a couple error messages along the way. All is good, but phone still heats up when using.
The emoticon news is they ran a remote diagnostic and the hardware is fine.
(However, I may print out our itinerary and tickets just in case...)

Kali: How's the phone issue? I hope you share pictures, particularly if you see a whale pod! Congrats on your Breanna visit. I hope you enjoy seeing her. I know you were worried.

Feline: I'm sorry both you and DH suffer. Poor DH he sounds like my SD about his restrictions. SD's stones are from osolates. He's having a cow over certain greens and red meat. The stuff that is actually on his heart diet plan as well. emoticon So he knows they are just a HUGE no no. I hope now he'll stop fussing when mom tries cooking heart healthy and kidney healthy meals.

Becky: I'm sorry about your dish! I have a few things that I hang onto for dear life, for sentimental reasons. When something happens to one of them it breaks my heart a little.

All seems to be in order in my universe at the moment. I'm 10 days into sobriety. I don't miss it. I'm pretty sure the addiction gene skipped me, but I'm also aware that I was becoming an abuser. It's a fine hair to split there I know.

In other news Bug and I made some fantastic yeast bread, and I made Mississippi Delta tamales, which are nothing like a Mexican tamale but take forever to roll out. The work keeps anxiety in check. I'm trying to veer away from making sweets to keep my "anxiety monster" in its box.

Becky - so sorry to hear about your pottery...

Feline - sorry both of you suffer from stones, but @ least you can help support each other?

11 Days until our Alaska adventure and I'm getting SO excited - of course when I opened my backpack this morning my phone was hot (for no reason I know of), so I've followed directions to cool down - airplane mode, etc. and am charging it to chat with Apple to see if it's a battery issue.
The good news is finding out before I have no ticket for the plane!

I just broke a dish that I (and hubby) bought before we got married, 30 years ago. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I had the bowl full of my yummy good for me food and it just fell out of my hand and shattered on the floor. My beautiful thick stoneware bowl. emoticon emoticon
So not only did I have to throw away all of that food, and make more, I had to throw my bowl away! This is the only one that has been broken in 30 years! emoticon emoticon

Welcome Becky! I joined 10 years ago but then took an 8 year hiatus emoticon

Eva: My hubby and I are both prone to kidney stones, his are from oxalates so he got a big long pamphlet listing allll the foods he can't eat anymore. Rhubarb, spinach, and chocolate are on the list so I asked him what the point of even eating anymore is emoticon Mine are caused by animal proteins, so as long as I stay closer to the vegetarian side of flexitarian they stay pretty under control. It's so weird that so many different things can cause them.

Kali: I hope you have fun in Alaska!

Eva - Happy late anniversary!

Isn't it amazing that all the healthy stuff you have been telling your family for years is always hippy woo hoo nonsense until a DOCTOR tells them the same exact thing? I hope your step dad listens.

I tend to do to much facebook, then complain about all the nonsense on it.

Kaligirl you get to go on an Alaska trip? That would be so much fun!

I tend to go dark on the weekends. I think having a break from social media, even the positive kind you find here on Spark, is a good thing. Facebook is a type of stress all on it's own these days.

Eva - glad to hear your stepdad is doing well but sorry the next removal is so soon. Hoping the information will help him change his diet and lifestyle...
emoticon Becky - glad you joined us and hope to see you often.

I am a less frequent user of the site too and if it wasn't for the emoticon (3.5" yesterday and this morning), I would not be posting until tomorrow. I'm working 3 days a week and like to 'go dark' the other 4, but I'll need to get a new routine for 2019 as I 'plan' to be fully retired. (Although I planned to be retired April 1...)
Counting my blessings as easing into a major life change is Much Appreciated!

Becky: Welcome to the chat threads! We're pretty laid back here. No worries!

My stepdad is doing well, but he is in for 1 more removal within the week. The doctor could not retrieve all the pieces of the stones. The removal of the stent that was stuck caused too much inflammation right off the bat. But the good news, someone finally decided to give him an informational sheet on kidney diets! It's no longer just Eva and her paranoia! Thank goodness for the new person on staff that consulted with the nutritionist at the hospital.

Today is my 13th wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that 13 years ago I married "my person." The one that gets my special brand of weird.

Hi guys! My name is Becky and I think this is the first time I've joined in on a chat. I've been on this teem since the first of the year. Yeah I know, how rude of me emoticon not to join in till now. I've been one of those people that start doing sparks, then stop, then start a month later, then stop. I've been trying to make the in betweens to be a bit shorter. maybe I will succeed before to much longer.

Eva I hope your step dad did ok.

Kali: I hope your meeting was successful! I'm glad you took a mental health morning and enjoyed the rain.

Isn't your full retirement date in December? Or will you be extending it?

People never cease to amaze me. There has been a police presence in the area, but unless the car is unmarked people will behave themselves.

I'm off to do the shopping this morning, then home to pace the halls until I hear that James Ray (step dad) is out of yet another kidney stone removal surgery. I'm hoping this is the last one for a VERY long time.

Feline - my thoughts are with you emoticon

Eva - love that Bre made the "The Wall of Awesome" - what a super incentive and emoticon on the book squad tryout.
Sorry about the emoticon budinski - we don't remember we're in dangerous situations until it's too late...

Since I worked Monday and extra hours yesterday, I'm taking the emoticon morning to myself. Wonderful to see the plants 'lapping it up'.
We're meeting to review changes to our board's policies this afternoon and I'm looking forward to moving several months of work forward. Wish us luck!

Kali: It seems to be going well enough. I did speak with my doctor's nurse. The last bloodwork showed slightly anemic -- iron and B-12. Imagine that. I do have more energy, but there's always a weird adjustment period for me.

Glad you enjoyed the concert! and that DH could make his meeting without having to miss any of it.

Feline: I'm sorry about the loss of the stray. I hope he turns up. Believe me, I understand. I have one living on my porch that I'd bring inside if Jim would let me. Lucky for me, she doesn't seem intent on going anywhere.


I got pissed off (pardon the language) yesterday when going to drop Brenna off at school. A woman passed me in the turning lane, in the school zone, only to add about 30 seconds to her day because she did not like that I was going 15 miles per hour which happens to be the posted speed limit. Of course, the application of her deodorant while driving could have obstructed her view of her speedometer. I'm not sure on that one. We seriously need a traffic camera over there. Someone is going to get hurt.

In positive news: 3 tests in and all 100's. Brenna's teachers have what they call "The Wall of Awesome". Although I have seen the grades in our power school app, the papers are hanging on that wall. I'll get them in a few days.

Brenna's application to book squad netted her a try out on the 28th. She's excited!

We had a rough night last night. We took in a stray and fell head over heels for him, but 6 cats was just so many cats so we found him a home. After we dropped him at his new home he ran away and we were just crying for hours. Then I found out I misinterpreted something my husband said and he would have let us keep him! I am so heartbroken and last night I ate my feelings for the first time in almost two years. I'm still weepy today and resisting eating when I shouldn't, but my heart hurts so much to think of him outside in a scary new place thinking we abandoned him.

Kurtzie - hope you are continuing to heal.

Eva - how is your supplement experiment going? I'm tempted to restart my regimen as well...

Earth Wind and Fire concert this evening moved indoors due to emoticon
Will be an additional blessing for us as DH has a board meeting after work and getting out to Pinewood Bowl would have involved missing a couple songs...

Kali: That's so cute. I love seeing fur-babies play. With 6 cats I am often entertained.

I pointed out in a blog this week I'm having leg cramps, specifically in my right calf. My mom reminded me that I had this when I was a teen and my iron and b 12 were low. It's not a typical symptom of low b-12, and I'm not sure about iron. It's also a symptom of Vitamin D and calcium deficiency. So for the moment, I've added iron, vitamin b complex, and vitamin C (to help the other 2 absorb properly) back in and I'll increase my dairy. I admit I stopped taking all supplements a few months ago. It might be catching up to me. Magnesium is the culprit for most people, but I've never had that particular deficiency, and the supplement tends to make me nauseous.

I'm ready for this week to come to a close. I'm a tired puppy. I'm still adjusting to the new schedule. Tomorrow I get to sleep past 4:45! emoticon

Kurtzie: How Precious! I bet you are just over the moon.

Kali: Hope you got to the yard projects without being in the heat too much. We are having rain, rain, rain. Which is odd for August. We should be very dry right now.

We are almost through the first full week of school. YAY! Brenna hasn't had much homework yet, but a fair amount of memorizing songs and cheers for English. It's the teacher's way of getting prepositions to stick in their heads. Apparently, she was once a cheerleader and uses the skill as a teaching tool. I wish my 5th grade English teacher was that fun.

Eva - hope you were able to give the principal that water and emoticon for Bre and shopping - a free jacket sounds like a win-win to me!
How cool that she wants to work in the library - I did too and having a personal 'Maker Space' is wonderful

emoticon Richard emoticon

Kurtzie - I hope your foot is healing.

Weather is emoticon again. (It is August after all). emoticon this morning is @ least delaying the rise. Hoping to mow the grass this evening and potentially move a few edging blocks if possible. Getting major projects organized and it feels great.
BTW - concert was great.

I spent yesterday doing an organization project in Brenna's space. I hesitate to call it a playroom these days. She crafts and draws in there more often than plays. She asked me to move some shelving around to make it more accessible to her. It wasn't a problem and she was happy with the results. Today I get to clean out the top of her closet and transfer memory boxes to the top of the craft room (?) closet to make space for shoes that are seasonal. She usually helps but I need something to keep me busy anyway. I miss my girl being at home with me.

Kurtzie: I'm sorry. I hope you can avoid the podiatrist. What's happened? I'm sure you've told us but I've had a brain fart and don't recall.

Brenna has decided to try out for Book Squad at school. She wants to work as a library assistant. At our school, it's Book Squad. One of her teachers does a classroom money system to teach kids about spending and saving. They apply for a job, and she hires them for that position. This is in social studies and science so I'm assuming it's an ongoing social studies lesson about how an economy works. Brenna applied for and got both "Materials Manager" (handing out papers) and "Plant Manager", watering plants once per week.

She waters plants here. She calls it "Watering Wednesdays" to help her remember what day to water the plants. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Richard I really like that video, thank you for sharing. Will be able to do this.

Went to the dr today and said she wants be to be a couch potato for the next 5 days, only walk when necessary (like having to go to bathroom), and keep foot in ace bandage, wear the orthopedic shoe, and also keep it elevated. If not better then to a podiatrist.

Richard: Thank you for sharing!

I'm feeling proud of Bug and her learning about finances. She wanted a jacket. This was the Sunday before school started. It was $60. So she decided to wait and shop around. She did not find a jacket she liked better so I took her back to Kohls on Saturday to consider the jacket. I had $20 in Kohl's cash and a 20% off coupon I told her she could have toward her purchase. The jacket was on sale this week for $40. She flipped through looking for her size and found a different jacket to try on. She checked the price tag and it was on clearance for $18, original price was $60. She stood there and did the math and figured out her jacket would be free if she bought this jacket. (It looked better on her too, in my opinion.) Smart kid. She also took the opportunity to check the undershirts and found the kind she likes on sale for $6. When we were finished she paid $3.51 for what normally would have been $70 plus tax. I'm so glad to be teaching her to be financially responsible.

Kali: How was the concert?

I haven't had many bagworms, but that doesn't mean I won't in the future. Japanese beetles, on the other hand, love my space.

We seem to start school earlier every single year. It's pitiful. It's still summer. The pickup line was completely different yesterday than on Wednesday. We lined up like we were training for a Nascar race, then when we pulled out since there was no rhyme or reason to left and right turns, we looked like an episode of Wacky Racers. I felt bad for the principle. I think I'm going to wag him a bottle of cold water today. He's really trying to figure out this mess. The traffic change all stems from our new elementary school opening. I don't think anyone from the district office or school board actually physically looked at how the traffic would most efficiently flow when they staggered our dismissal times. It'll get better. I just wish people had more patience with the process.

Eva - I can't believe your school has started... August 13 is the first day for public schools and the university starts August 20. Tackling your desk sounds not only productive, but an excellent way to handle missing Bre.

I've not had luck with insecticidal soap on those plants I can reach and the oak trees leaves are above my head, so I'm hoping next spring's application will @ least help the problem. After losing a 6' tall arborvitae to bagworms, I'm leery of using anything but what I know will work...

Took Liz to Camp Bow Wow as we have the concert tonight and I'm hopeful she'll be 'worn out' enough to nap until we get home.

Feline: I have all those pretty supplies for my desk at home. Afterall I manage the house so it is my office!

Kali: I like the license plate!

Spraying your trees with insecticidal soap does help and if it's like mine your honey bees won't be harmed.

Yesterday was the first day of school. The car line in the afternoon was HORRIBLE. We have a new procedure. It'll get better. But the first day is always terrible. I did take the opportunity to get the weeding done and I deadheaded the roses. Today I'm going to tackle this desk. I have to have projects for the first few days of school. It keeps me from missing Brenna, my sidekick, so much.

Feline - love the 'window shopping' too - especially with all the new colors in office accessories!

Eva - I know what you mean. August means 5 months before retirement - 100 days... Just feel blessed they let me go part time.

Finishing projects @ home - skylights caulked, trees cut off the roof and city marked sidewalks for repair and moving. I'm not sure we will replace the cracked segments as that is a city responsibility, but we may ask our contractor to fill the cracks.
Keeping 'most' of the weeds @ bay emoticon but it also is the end of the season. Will definitely treat the trees and shrubs next spring as the poor oak trees are 'raining' on anything beneath them and I've found (only one!) bagworm.

Next major project will be moving the edging bricks and cutting in new bed borders followed by top dressing and overseeding. Just happy the weather appears moderate this week.

Foster care review board tonight and Steve Miller Band with Peter Frampton tomorrow night, followed by dinner with our Friday night group. Also picking up my new license plates Friday.
They are so cool!

I miss new school years and shopping for school supplies. That's part of the less fun things about going to school online - it's year round and I don't need supplies! I love office and school supplies. Sometimes I like to just browse those aisles at the store to relax, even though I know I have absolutely no reason to be looking.
