Mornin. I am sure u finished that inventory by now :) House putter this morning and a little time on here then I thik I'll go outside. Cloudy and cool but not raining. Have to do some weeding in the flowers and vegies. I get it all nice and cleaned up and dang if in a month's time those pesky weeds have started again. Oh wow, that must have been such a bonus to sell all those talented women together. I thibk Grace turned into quite a painter. DG yesterday was not memorable I must say, Kind of floundered my way through the course LOL For some reason I was tired and I didn't seem to be able to put a lot of strength into my throws. It happens - there is always another day. But not til next Wed since we do the brunch thing on Mon. He does have a plan and very cool he is able to repurpose some stufff we have already. When we used to take the kittehs down to Bend we had a very large kennel type cage that we set up outside one of the windows there so they could have a little outdoor area to get fresh air. He is going to use that for the new enclosure which is brilliant. He'll set it up on an eleavted table kind of thing with 4x4s supporting it (like a rabbit hutch). This one won't go down to ground level and the opening to get to it will branch out of the tunnel under the deck already. What's up for u and Becky today?

Pretty good test results, I'd say, tho odd that your HDL dropped a point. All in all, it sure sounds like your efforts are paying off! Yay! I just checked our weather and it's a pleasant 72 out. Humidity, however, is currently 94%. That's a number I could live without. lol! I need to get those jasmine repotted soon so I can hole up inside the rest of the day.

I don't know, something always seems to come up to keep u from those cleaning chores. Have to go count the number of petals on the roses or something :) Actually I like a combo of Oregon Chai, milk and crushed ice blended just as well as a milkshake. I like my shakes a lot less thick than most places make them. If I wanted to eat it with a spoon I would have got, like u said, a bowl full. Stevie is touring with this band iteration but McVie is not I am sorry to say as there are some songs. only she can do really well. I am a hetero woman, but I have always found Stevie very attractive. She has this kind of fey, not quite in this physical plane quality. On stage and vids anyway Who knows what she is really like. Could swear like a sailor for all I know LOL

Lending u my halo for ur tests results! Ur healthy eating is paying off. U sure got those quick. We always have some kind of ice cream in the freezer but we don't eat a lot of it. In the summer we tend to keep vanilla around cuz we like to make milkshakes occasionally. I love the waffle type cones rather than the spun sugar that remind me of chopped and formed styrofoam :) SOunds like u had a nice easy day. Doc visit fine, different one Tues but all just check-ups. That is so true - howone little thing can brong forth a stream of memories like a little brain vid. For me sometimes it is a certain smell. Did get in D with no rain, but kind of on the humid side. A litle grocery shopping after that for some thing I need for Sun when son comes up The plan to get here in the afternoon so we will all eat dinner together rather than them eating on the road Mon will be all eating out as we will get MIL and we'll all go to brunch together. She likes Dennys - not my fave but it's not about me :) The in the evening we'll go to dinner along with our BFF couple and then to the Fleetwood Mac concert. They will leave Tues am. Tomorrow we had a luncheon date at a German deli and bakery with the frens we went to the play with (he is German). Unfortunately he had a work emergency and had to fly to AK today and won't be bacl til Tues. That does leave a free day to play around with my veg and flower garden and some time here. U have any plans for the weekend besides watching assorted sports :)

I don't usually mess with the old overdone themes, but I just had an image of an old whiskered granny needing a shave. I kinda figured I'd be the only one who got a laff from that one. Yeah, the plain clay pots kinda go with our Southwestern decor anyway, so they'll do fine. Nashville! That's one show that just never interested me. I figured it would be too 'nighttime soap opera' for my tastes I'm guessing it's quite a bit better than that tho, cause you don't strike me as the soap opera type. =) It stayed cloudy most of the day but we never got a drop of rain. Looks like they're taking a pounding east of us, around Alabama. I sure hope there aren't any more tornadoes.

Nothing like a good blood letting first thing in the morning! Ooh, I'll have to try to remember to record that Discovery series. If it's on Discovery, it's no doubt very good. Just got back from WW a while ago. Not much in the way of fancy pots, which didn't surprise me. They DID have the old standby clay pots in the size I need tho. Halleluyah! Guess I'll have to pot them early in the morning, it's just too hot and steamy out there now and it's going to be worse over the weekend. They say the humidity is only at 62% but it feels worse than that, I suppose because everything is still wet from the rain. Whatever - no more outies for me today! Walks and mowing sounds like a fine to do list to me!

I THINK we are going to have another nesting mourning dove couple in the greenery on my patio. I hear them hoo-hooing all the time but haven't been able to locate the nest yet. The other thing right now is swarms of bushtits...do you have them? They are teeny...almost as small as hummingbirds...and they travel in swarms, all going peep-peep-peep at the same time. They fill up one tree...then all pick up and move to the next tree. VERY cute. The Wiggle practically has PTSD after they leave.//As for water, it looks like another bad drought year (well, we'd better get used to it.) We had a fair amount of snow for snowmelt in the mountains, but spring rains have been zilch. Every day great thunder heads gather and look as though they will explode with precipitation...then nothing. They move on. I'm thinking it's time to get the car washed, or leave some expensive books out on the patio or something, to encourage the gods to let it pour.

Dado'Becky! Wow...I'm bowled over by the rose comix! What gorgeous flowers and what perfect pictures, with the drops of water still on the petals! You are a great photographer...like a little mini-tour for us in the desert...sigh. (Especially the drops of water. I saw one of those once...a long time ago...)

Was it a Tuesday? I can't remember. This is why I like having friends who are younger than me. Their memories are so much better than mine. At least we're getting rain this year. And not much of the stormy kind, either. Last May I'd already started my summer watering regimen. There's really no reason to spray all that ivy now with this rain. It's better to wait until it's all good and thirsty. Looks like you'll be on the cool side today. Sounds nice! I guess I'll buzz over to Wally World today and hopefully find those pots.

What a glorious sight first thing in the morning - all of those beautiful roses! I just wanted to reach out and touch them. The bees were a nice addition. I especially like the shot where the bee is coming in for a landing. Weekly outings with your folks is a great idea. Maybe they can come up with some ideas of their own. I have to get my blood tested twice a year and you're right, they're not a big deal. I just can't watch that needle sliding into my arm. Gives me the willies! Yep, t-storms or heat for us. Where did my spring go??!! *sob*

Had a very enjoyable evening with our fren. Loved "Django" but then we do like all of Tarantino's work. Parts of it were very disturbing and violent as I had expected knowing the general subject matter, but also his usual quirky dark humor. He enjoyed the burgers and especially the tater salad :) I sent him home with 2 burgers and more salad. Have early doc appt then hopefully DG so don't know if I'll be on til the evening. Oh, the roses are gorgeous and I imagine u enjoyed ur visit there very much. As I am referring to ur msg I realize one of my later msgs didn't post to u - one of the few times I must have forgotten to do so. The only thing I can remember was wondering what u would consider a treat after fasting 12 hours and I had several suggestions: rocky road ice cream cone, toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese or a caramel latte with whip cream. U will probably come up with something totally different :)

That really is a great nickname. She is so funny! Well deserved FPs is right! She told me they'd just had a bobcat siting, too. I ED'd that you'll be taking your folks to the Rose Garden next week. That will be fun, especially if your mom gives out little wooden animals your dad has made to the kids there. What a super idea! We've had a couple of hours without rain now, but there's more on the way. I hope it doesn't get stormy. I also saw that you have to take blood and test it? Is that for your BP? EW!

Yes, I was amazed to hear his voice. He doesn't really know how long they'll keep him. Thinks he may get out by the end of the day tomorrow. He laughed and said he's on the Morphine right now but his leg hurts from having to keep it in one spot for so long. He hasn't gotten to speak with the doctor yet but said he'd heard that everything went well. He was in recovery for 2.5 hours. They didn't have to do as extensive of a bone graft as originally thought. So now a collective sigh of relief and he can start to mend.
By Foxkatt on May 16, 2013 at 12:59 PM
HE'S OUT and OKAY! I just heard from the big guy himself! He's talking and actually making sense, LOL. Say's they didn't have to put in as much bone graft as they'd thought. The surgeon said he was very happy. He doesn't know how many screws got put in yet but from the X-rays it was (and I quote), "a LOT." Says to tell you all that the prayers n' good thoughts worked and thanks SO much. He'll be in touch himself of course when he gets out.
