I have such age spots now that I really should be wearing make-up all the time. It just slides off though. Although, the Bare Minerals does work quite well. I guess I've just gotten out of the habit of wearing make-up.

Julie's friend is helping Bill cook dinner. She is a cook in Reno. So, she really isn't on vacation at the moment!

Ooooh, what are you having?

She's probably having fun and doesn't consider it work.

LOL I always look like a Walmartian.

I had to answer the door tonight wearing shorts and compression stockings. I hope the salesman didn't notice. LOL (Trying to sell us cable, phone and/or internet service.)

He was actually a cute guy, too. Too young for me, seemed sincere (was in awe of the motorhome ), but a salesman. I had a hard time getting rid of him, standing there with the door cracked open as little as possible since the AC is running. A fly still managed to find its way in.

We had a chicken recipe that Julie found on Pinterest. You sauté onions (and we add red peppers) then put a bunch of spices (with a Mexican flair) on the chicken and sauté that. Then top with queso blanco Mexican cheese. It is delicious. Marie likes onions this way and I could eat ALL the onions this way.

I knew you didn't like the red peppers. But we add them for more color and flavor. The first few times we had it with only the onions - which are delicious.

It is 3 a.m. and I'm not asleep yet. Issues (still/again?) with Marie. I'm just frustrated and annoyed. Bill deals with her but I don't think we are helping her anymore. Just enabling her. I want him to go to therapy with me. He thinks he is helping but nothing changes. Isn't that the definition of insanity or craziness? I'm tired and not thinking straight.

Guten tardes!

JoJo, I wish I could eat bell peppers, and I have tried. But they tear my stomach up. Same with spinach. I have to avoid them just like I'm allergic to them.

JoJo, I think you are thinking straight. God bless Bill for his interventions, but they are short term fixes, not a long term solution.

Dear Abby would advise you to go to therapy by myself, if your mate won't go with you.

Is the saying you're going for, “Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”

Major cramps today! I couldn't stand up straight a while ago (thankfully it passed quickly).

Just thankful that it appears Aunt Flo will not interfere with either of my special events this month. I did not want to have to take her to the parties with me.

hee hee...

Mrs. Wig went to lunch with 3 other ladies today, and came home with yarn to make four of these scarves and fabric to make two of these jewelry pouches .

That'll teach her to take items for "show and tell." She ends up being asked to make more! But hey, it gives her something to do when stuck indoors on these hot summer days.

The lady who wants the scarves (to give as Christmas presents) and my mom went to Walmart after lunch. The lady picked out the yarn she wanted and bought it, and even paid my mom already for making them. The jewelry pouch is for one of the other ladies. Mom picked out some bright colored fat quarters for that.

Those scarves were all the rage in Arizona last weekend. I don't know how many my mom ended up making for people, quite a few.

The jewelry pouch thing just came up over the weekend. I found the pattern in a bin at one of the thrift stores we went to, for 15 cents. I have a similar pouch that I have used for years. Mine has been to South America, Europe, Asia, and all over the U.S. I don't even remember where I got mine, but I love it.

And Mr. Wig picked more black raspberries last night, so Mrs. Wig is going to make some jelly. She bought a packet of pectin at Wally World and I found a recipe online (Sure Jell). We may not have enough berries for a full batch, but even a few jars would be nice.

Mr. Wig also picked up some poison ivy when he was tramping around in the brush getting berries. He is very susceptible to it.

We had 2 inches of rain this morning. We were kind of ready for some--it's been hotter and we've been having to water the flowers in the yard.

Did I tell y'all that the hydrangeas that Mr. Wig cut to the ground in the spring are blooming?! I was surprised, because I thought our hydrangeas were the type that bloomed only on old wood. But they grew up to a nice size and have blooms on them. They are so pretty--the colors are amazing.

Hurray! Mr. Wig actually left work early for once. I guess the call of the berries was too strong. (Mrs. Wig called him earlier and said she would probably need more berries to make jelly.)

Afternoon all!

Ended up being a somewhat busy day. Since I had such trouble sleeping last night, Bill took the dogs to the groomer on his way to work (he left a little later). Julie let me sleep longer so I took the girls to lunch rather than breakfast. Then they went to the mall and I ran some other errands: ToysRUs for a gift for a child (our church does Christmas in July for needy families), then went to Michael's. Found a few things I 'could use" from there and also found a Visa gift card there for the other child I needed to buy for! I also went to Catherine's and got a pair of capris and a 100% cotton top.

8 full jars (1 cup size) and one half jar of black raspberry jelly (seedless). We'll use the 1/2 jar as a taste tester.

black-raspberry-jelly-july-9-2013-001.jpg

We made refrigerator-style jelly, since that's the type of jar we had. It's pretty much the same process as canning jelly, except we didn't have to boil the jars until the lids sealed. We can just pop on the plastic lids once the jelly is completely cooled.

Mrs. Wig told Mr. Wig that any more berries that he picks will be "just for eating." (Meaning, don't pick too many because I'm not going to be making a bunch more jelly. LOL)

So the wax seals them? Can you store them on a shelf or do they all have to stay in the fridge?

No wax. They have to be stored in the fridge.

We'll give at least one to my brother, leaving us 7. I don't eat much jelly, but between the 3 of us we should have no problem finishing them off.

I did a taste test. Talk about SUPER concentrated flavor!

We all had fresh jelly on our toast today. Pretty darn tasty! The jelly is nice and thick but still spread nicely. I think we'll enjoy it. It would be awesome on some hot biscuits.

Mr. Wig was calculating in his head how many dollars worth of jelly we made, based on the price they were charging per jar last week at the Amish grocery. He is such a goon sometimes. LOL

And he's just lucky he has a wife who is willing to bake pies and make jelly and whatever else when he brings "free" stuff home.

And it is RAINING AGAIN!

We have broken an all time record on rain this year.


We have had more to date than all of 2011 and 2012 and a tropical storm headed in our general direction.


Lakes and streams are at full pool. We could be looking at flooding if the tropical storm decides to stall out over us.

I sure hope not, Granny. There has been too much flooding and storm damage already.

We won't flood here.


Atlanta would be under water if we flooded but soooo many of the low areas will flood.


We had a 100 year flood a few years ago. It was awful.

We just had the 5th anniversary of our so-called 500 year flood. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago. The city still hasn't fully recovered, and still has no flood protection.

Mr. Wig took us to the store for dinner tonight (soup and salad bar). It's so nice to have a night off from cooking and doing dishes.

Thursday: the new mattress for the motorhome is being delivered, and we have a company coming to give an estimate for a new water heater. It seems that the newer ones are bigger than the one we have, so we're concerned about there being enough room for it.

I mailed off two envelopes tonight, of the mini-houses I made during the art marathon last weekend. I have two more envelopes to send off; I'm waiting on one gal in Canada to give me her address, and I need to complete one more mini house before I can mail off the other to a gal in Texas. I'm excited to see the houses I get in return. I've seen scans/pictures of them, but generally things look much better in person.
