Default ***Misfit Monday (6-1-15)***

Happy Monday!

Happy June!

Happy Misfit Monday ON a Monday!!!!!!!!!!!

We're taking our car to the shop this morning to finally get my bumper reflector fixed from when I had my fender bender last year. We'll drop it off and walk to the gym which is only about a mile away and spend the day at the outdoor pool.

Hope everyone has a great day, week, month!!!

Great that it is JUNE and I'm looking forward to the garden getting going. It's late this year.

I just bought some hanging baskets for around the house. Wow an everyday activity!!! The flowering crab tree is beautiful and the lilacs nearby make that old winter a distant memory.

We have rain and some thunderstorms rolling in. I'm not complaining because we need the rain. This system could be over us for a few days. It would be nice if it was a slow, soaking rain, but we'll take it at this point.

It is pouring with thunder and lightening right now, however, before the storm came, we did see a beautiful sunset tonight.

The lilacs are blooming around the house. The flowering crab tree was ruined by the rain. It only had about 4hours of glory. The trees are getting heavy with leaves and the grass very lush and turning into a hay field. These are the days we all look forward to having.

I even got to go to a card class today and life is starting to feel normal again.

Did not get my car fixed. Turns out, they ordered the wrong part so we have to go back another day. It has been so hot the past few days - today was 89* - GROSS!!! We spent the afternoon at the pool to cool off.

I met a really nice lady and her daughter at the gym a few weeks ago. We've gotten really close and we're all going to Elitches Amusement Park in Denver tomorrow for her daughter's 5th birthday. Neither one of them have ever been there. Looking forward to enjoying the day with them.

Jennifer- too bad about your vehicle. Have fun today with the kids!
Today is my last day of work until August. The kids aren't there. It is a cleaning day! I am excited to be off for a few months. I do need to work on June 20th for a catered event. A teacher's family is having a party. I am not sure of my duties for the day!

Sorry about the car... enjoy spending the day with your new friend!

Here is a chuckle for today

Panda Lunch

A panda walks into a restaurant, sits down, and orders a sandwich. He eats the sandwich, pulls out a gun, and shoots the table.

As the panda stands up to leave, the manager shouts, "Hey! Where are you going? You just shot my table and you didn't pay for your sandwich!"

The panda yells back at the manager, "Hey, man, I'm a PANDA! Look it up!"

The manager opens his dictionary and sees the following definition for panda: "A tree-dwelling marsupial of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves."

Hi friends! We are day three of dreariness. We have had some much needed rain. The last two days have been quite chilly - 50s and 60s. It gives the A/C a rest though. I'm hoping tomorrow is a little nicer.

I started a new cross stitch piece yesterday. Since I had my eye surgery and can now wear drug store reading glasses I can stitch again. I'm using linen and stitching over one thread. I never thought I'd be able to do that again. I'm so happy to be stitching. Now to get to my craft room and clean that out so I can stamp!

Joan - so glad you are done! Love you, sister!

Would you please keep my friend, Julie, in your prayers. She's a good friend from church. Around Easter she got an eye infection. A few weeks later it was discovered she actually had an amoeba-like thing growing/eating her eye. Yes, it is that gross. She is getting better, but still needs to have painful drops. The last visit to the doctor he said they would evaluate for a cornea transplant (she was NOT prepared to hear that). On top of all this (which has been going on since before Easter) she just told me she and her husband have decided to divorce. Talk about added stress. Please just pray for her, her husband (too) and their three children. The girls are adults (19 and 20). Their son is only 12.

Another beautiful sunny day here at Ft. Myers Beach. Going to miss waking up to the awesome view of the gulf.

Will be meeting a very nice momma tonight who lost her baby boy to brain cancer seven years ago. Am grateful for the opportunity to spend time with Mimi.

I second Caterina's Happy Birthday wish to Jennifer!

I shampooed the carpeting in the living room. It still looks dirty. I guess after vacation I will be doing it again!

Did I tell you ladies that Dh and I are going a way next week. We are actually going on vacation. This is the first time in years that we are both off at the same time during the summer. We are heading up the North Shore of MN.

Caterina - so glad you are in FL and visiting with people for your birthday! You are such a wonderful, caring lady.

Jennifer - hoping you have a great day. I saw on FB that your mom took the day off. Can't wait to hear what you end up doing.

Joan - very, very glad that you and DH are getting a vacation! I think you both deserve this!

To all my other Misfit friends - IT'S FRIDAY!!! Woo hoo. It has been a gray week here. I think we are supposed to get some sun later today. I see a few shadows outside so it is already brighter than it has been most of the week. Bill had opened the pool a week ago. He and I were in for a bit on Saturday but that's been it. Maybe we'll use it again this weekend.

I have SO much I should be doing. Maybe after lunch. (I'm so lazy)

DH and I spent most of the day with DS and his daughter. They made 2 projects at Home Depot, went to the store, played in three parks and ate lunch at Old Country Buffet.

I forgot to add this!

I've had a week of back pain that has flattened me out. Very frustrating to watch things go to pot around here as I'm not picking things up. Hopefully I'm on the mend and company coming on Monday from New Hampshire.

Some friends dropped off hostas for me to plant. Um, I don't think that is going to happen.

Nice to see humming birds around and the lilacs are abundant in this part of the world.

Joanne what are you up to? Doing any cards?

Joan hope you have a nice holiday. I was up in that area a few years back. Very nice to follow the shoreline and the cabin/cottage area is something I love. My whole basement area is on that theme.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I had a nice day - we went out to breakfast, did some shopping and took Preston to a museum and made a few fun crafts. Ended the night with dinner at PF Changs and cake. Yesterday we went to a garage sale and scored big! Lots of fun things came home with me. Went to a friend's birthday party and Preston spent the night at Grandma's. Today the 3 of us are going up to Denver to see the Chalk Festival. I've seen pictures online of the amazing chalk art on sidewalks, but never seen it in person. Looking forward to another fun day!

Happy Monday, ladies, sure is quiet here lately. Hopefully everyone is enjoying sunny summer weather.

Have a doctors appointment this afternoon with my internist to check over a few things.

Will have to send this chuckle to some teachers...

Substitute Teacher

Walking through the hallways at the middle school where I work, I saw a new substitute teacher standing outside his classroom with his forehead against a locker.

I heard him mutter, "How did you get yourself into this?"

Knowing that he was assigned to a difficult class, I tried to offer moral support.

"Are you okay?" I asked. "Can I help?"

He lifted his head and replied, "I'll be fine as soon as I get this kid out of his locker."

Hello my friends!

Gail - hope your back is better.

We had some thunder storms move in here yesterday. I don't know if it was one 'big' storm that lasted 90 minutes with thunder/lightning or if it was a series of small storms . Julie's cat did NOT like the thunder. He hid under the loveseat - a new spot for him.

Today is 31 years of marriage to my dear hubby. He has to be out of town. We went out to dinner last night. We're going camping in two weeks - I'm good with it!

Just had friends for morning coffee. Seems to be more my speed these days. My back is much better and I'm thankful for that. No more lifting heavy hanging pots over my head!

Eugene was here yesterday and got half of my fence up in the garden. I got some solar lights outside to soak up the rays. The house got tidied up and the gardens were looking better everywhere. New hostas planted - what a lift.

This weekend we will be ripping the carpet up downstairs and vinyl strips will go down. Easier to care for with all the animals. Looking forward to the results but not the effort required.

Last night after a rest I went to town on making cards. I started with July 4th and I was trying to use washi tape. I saw a tutorial that made me want to try something different. I have about 10 rolls but never knew what to do with it. So finally a everyday activity!!! I think I'm on a roll, every day is getting easier - thank goodness.

Gail, sounds like a very fun and productive time.

Chuckle for today

The Workout


The Doctor told me I should start an exercise program. Not wanting to harm this old body, I've devised the following:

Beat around the bush
Jump to conclusions
Climb the walls
Wade through the morning paper.
Drag my heels
Push my luck
Make mountains out of mole hills
Hit the nail on the head.
Bend over backwards
Jump on the band wagon
Run around in circles.
Toot my own horn
Pull out all the stops
Add fuel to the fire
Open a can of worms
Put my foot in my mouth
Start the ball rolling
Go over the edge.
Pick up the pieces.
Kneel in prayer
Bow my head in thanksgiving
Uplift my hands in praise
Hug someone and encourage them.
What a Workout!
Rest At Last.

I should have done that workout today, Caterina!! I went to the gym and did something to my back - guess I was grooving too much in Zumba! LOL!

First farmer's market started today - I really enjoyed going every week last year and can't wait to do it again this year! Preston had fun picking out what he wanted and putting it in the bag - we got red, white and blue potatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, kale, peppers, onions, corn, a giant carrot, broccoli and tomatoes. That should last us a week

Dh and I had a great vacation. It was cut short because I bit into something. My tooth has not stopped hurting since Wednesday morning! I have been trying to get a dentist appt. So far no dentist can take me. I am really in pain. I have been taking mega doses of Ibuprofen. It dulls the pain for a an hour or two at the most. Any suggestions?

Joan - why can't you find a dentist to take you? Keep calling around!!

Hope your pain gets better! Sorry you're hurting
