Since the "veteran's event" was such a dud i skated out at 2 :30. Got 210 cards written with nice messages. I just kept at it hoping someone would show up. Oh well! It's done.

Got in a couple late afternoon hours of leaf raking! Cleaned out the leaves by the garage and moved a stack of foam insulation boards into the yard. Half to the garden and half to the old strawberry patch near my back door! Lots of exercise bending, lifting, stacking! Felt great to get it done! Hopefully tomorrow can get the stuff moved out of Mother's side of the garage so she can park in there (and quit nagging me!!!)

Drove down to Dillon to pick up a 5 year old (approx) male bichon from their rescue. Left here at 10 p.m. Got to Helena at 1 a.m. Was supposed to stay with friends there and was too wound up to sleep so stopped at WinCo and loaded up on the dried tart cherries and kept going. The clerk at WinCo warned me the elk were really bad near Boulder and he wasn't joking. I stopped in there at the 24 hour Town Pump and tried to catch a nap and wait for the sun to come up. Amazing how much blood was splattered all along I-15 on the way home today.

The new boy is a wild man. I don't think he's socialized at all. But I think once the other dogs get used to him he'll fit in just fine with the old herd of turtles. Might bring them some new energy. Was just over 700 miles roundtrip. And coming home in daylight I got to see the starting of fall colors. An hour after I got home it started to rain.

My goal for this week is to get my new kitchen faucet installed. The trick is to get the old one out! Also feel great about the goals I have set for September!

The combine driver was just finishing up the last field of spring wheat as I pulled off into the stubble to set up the dinner table! I am beyond thrilled to be done for another year. I still have a couple days of clean up - getting the dishes and silverware and stuff sorted and stored until next year and cleaning and bleaching the coolers and hauling them back out to store at one of the farm shops. I brought 4 back with me tonight and got them filled with water!!

It was 93 here today. Another hot one tomorrow and then tomorrow night cold Canadian air heading in and bringing moisture with it. I am going to do the dishes and head up for a soak in the hot tub at the motel pool. I got most of the stuff out of the pick-up - except for the table. Got my containers watered and the patio hosed off and it's feeling like bedtime for Bonzo. I might actually just finish up the dishes and soak in my own tub with some Epsom salts.

Have to drive about 50 miles east of here for a doctor appointment tomorrow morning and I'm just beat. But it's been another good day! Tired in a really good way. And another harvest on the books. Now to get my accounting done and get the bill turned in. That's the part I am the laziest about doing!

I had a really busy week ahead and decided there was just too much in the schedule. I had to travel on Monday and Tuesday and work an additional 8 hours on Wednesday. I dropped my mom off on Tuesday and she will be at my sister's for a week SO...I cancelled 2 appointments on Thursday and Friday so I can take advantage of her absence to get some painting and cleaning done. I called a guy I know to paint the fence and am also getting someone to come in and clean the carpets at mother's. I had planned on doing both of those things myself but just decided that it would be money well spent to just get it done while I was doing other things I can't hire done. Plus my medical appointments exhausted me. I overdid it after my Synvisc knee injections by taking dinner out to the harvest crew. Now my knees and ankles are sore and swollen. I also ended up with 3 extra days of feeding the crew and while I love those guys and the money is great, I should have refused. I will be paying the price...but I'm still cutting back and taking care of myself which IS progress!

I have been really disorganized lately...even more than usual. Could not find my little cheapie smart phone and was going to just buy a new one. It's the size of a credit card and not a flip phone just so you can visualize why it's so hard to find. Anyway, I got the cards but there was no one to help me in electronics because it was almost closing time at Wally World...it's just a trac phone. Anyway, I got mom's up and running and found mine...so it was a blessing that I didn't buy a new one!

Also it was quite easy once I got the guy to understand what I was looking for to hold up the topper rear lid. He ordered it and even installed them for me today and also put on the new windshield wipers. Love it when a plan comes together!

Had a great thing happen to me! I wanted a new swim suit and cover-up. I don't need them, but I just wanted them. It was a really pretty Hawaiian print and I thought I would get it as a reward for losing weight and sticking to my diet. I figured it would go on sale after the 4th of July. Well, it didn't.

So I decided that I was worth it and would pay full price. I took 2 sizes back to the dressing room. Both of the ones I tried were way too big and even funnier...the style just didn't look good on me. So not only am I feeling good about losing weight, I saved the money for a suit and cover-up I really didn't need!

Had a colonoscopy a couple weeks ago at the V.A. and weighted 48# less than last time I was at the V.A. doctor! It was nice to have the nurses congratulate me over and over again. Will be interesting to see how my regular NP feels about it when I see her on the 16th.

I've been doing really well talking myself out of buying stuff on sale. The "Would you pay full price for it?" question helps and also just the true desire to have less stuff to deal with. I've also been going through lots of boxes to donate to the upcoming rummage sale at the Senior Center. Some of the boxes haven't been opened in over 15 years...and it's been hard but it's also been a great trip down memory lane and feels good to be finally able to deal with letting go!

emoticon down another 1.6# from last week!! Sadly I had a few days of cheating. Could have done better! The taste of the food never lasts or feels as good as seeing the number on the scales move down. Need to Get serious about tracking food again. Would like to be down 10 more pounds by my doctor's appointment on July 16th.

Worked in the yard most of the day. Got 3 barrels of weeds pulled. More bedding plants in the ground and my 3 long containers of coleus (that I found in Great Falls on my way through headed home from my VA doctor's appointment on Monday) planted and next to the gate in the shade. They are little now but will be wonderful color in another month! Finished up by mowing the lawn. It looks good and ready for the storm (which I think is going to hit east of us).

Much cooler tomorrow. Hopefully I can get my window air conditioners in. It's just too hot to sleep without putting fans in the windows and the noise annoys me!

Both dogs need a bath from their digging ventures today and I need to get my dirty, sweaty hair washed so I'm off to do that. Another night I might be asleep before 2?!!
