Afternoon!

Do we have to worry about 5,000 posts anymore?? I'd start a new one, but I have no idea what rhymes with seven! Besides heaven, of course...

DH and the kids are out at my school playing basketball, soccer, and the like. Um, it's gonna be 83 today! I'm staying inside, thank you very much! I spent Thursday and yesterday all day at the garage sale...enough sun for me! Got more color than I'd like again on Thursday, so I smartened up and put on sunscreen yesterday! Drum roll please....we made $360! Holy smokes! Very thankful indeed.

Speaking of garage sales, I wonder how Em's did...we need a full report! ;0)

Patty, I'm so sorry you are dealing with all of this. I'm thankful Hospice can help you in many ways. I think it's very smart to have things lined up to make that unbearable time more manageable, if that's possible. Big Hugs!

Last night we went to a friend's house. Her and her two daughters are moving back to Germany. Her husband will be staying here. Not sure what all is going on, none of my bees wax, but I feel bad to have the girls separated from a parent. We did that for 6 months, while DH stayed behind in France, and it was tough! Shout out to LAURA! You rock it every day girl! Way to be a great Mom!

DH did the laundry yesterday, so I'm just fluffing it up. It's those little things that remind me how great he is!! ;0)

Yay on the garage sale success, Shari. Good job!

I just ran out to my parents house. You would have thought that I had given him a new tractor instead of a plate of cookies. lol!

He asked me if I could look up a telephone number in Kalamazoo on the internet when I got home. I pulled out my phone and started narrowing down exactly what he needed this number for. He wanted drive to Kalamazoo to buy a pair of Rockport shoes. What the heck. 10 minutes later I had ordered him a pair on Zappos. I love my smart phone.

I feel like I am going to die. I have only managed to go over the part of the bed we already did re-weeding and planting some more stuff. Delphinium, lavender, and something else. I can't remember what it was.

Luckily, the other part of the bed isn't that big. But it is a mess.

Speedwell. That is it. I had to go look.

They were all on sale at Home Depot.

Sounds like my yard, Lorien. By the time I finish weeding all the way around, it's time to start back at the beginning again. It's never ending.
Are you muddy? I've went out and checked, I've got standing water.

My Speedwell just started blooming, you'll like it. I like all the plants you've picked.

But it will be gorgeous, right, Lorien?

Scored some more plants off freecycle. Yay! They're planted. Had a nap. I'm not accomplishing much today.

It's delightful that your dad is so happy about cookies. And yay for Zappos!

Almost done with the laundry and washing all pots, pans, utensils, etc from the camper. I just need to wipe it all down in their and vacuum, then I can put all the stuff back.

We ended up having grilled steak and baked potatoes. Yum!

Randy and I went into town and got a new pear tree and some bee something or other. No one had lemon grass or citronella plant. They said as soon as they get them in, they are gone. I am not surprised, the mosquitos are numerous this year!

I even got a quick nap in. I think it was unavoidable with the migraines and meds I've been taking. I think its the pollen. Good grief, you can watch it move around in clouds here!!

I am not kidding about the pollen either. We thought someone had a fire going in the area because it got kind of hazy and it was pollen.

I also managed to get a batch of Harley treats in too.

I still have to fold laundry, make the bed and take a shower. I don't wanna.

I don't grill very much. I should. I can't remember the last time I cooked a steak on the grill.

OK. You guys have me checking out Zappos now. I found a couple of cute bathing suit tops (pricier than what I usually spend, but they would hide the fat rolls).

Oooh, those tops are cute, I had to look for a few seconds before I decided if I liked them or not!!!! Hee hee. I do though, I think you'll look adorable in one, Nikki.

I just read back for the last couple of days and you girls have been BUSY! All that planting and work ...

Joyce, my favourite post was about how your Dad loved his plate of cookies so much. That touched me. I want to make my Dad some cookies. I'm usually with him for Father's Day. Last 12 years in a row actually. Sad face .... BUT thank goodness for the telephone and internet and Skype and all the other things that keep them feeling closer.

Shari, glad your garage sale was a success. Our was too, although T made the majority of the money. I got a couple of hundred bucks which was great and most of my stuff went ... some little girls bought a few of Sarah's Beanie Babies and Build a Bears. I tried not to get too choked up letting them go. All the rest went to Salvation Army. Someone will be happy. At least it's all out of my garage.

I'm exhausted. I need to be asleep, but guess what? The fourth of July has, apparently, been moved to the 17th of June. Who knew? Asshat neighbours. Dogs are freaking out every time there's a loud bang, well not Molly, but the 2 Collies. I want to kill somebody. Is that bad?

Schnauzers, bacon????

Hee hee.

I must be in a better humour ... I will try hard for tomorrow.

Nighty night Mingler buddies.

I think we should move to 97 ... too late to even think of a witty name though. How about

Come and chat on 97, and if you let off fireworks late at night, Emma will stab you in the eye with a toothpick ... that rhymes, right? Ha!

Happy Monday everyone
