Thanks for letting us know about Watercolor Wednesday, Melody!! I have got to try it!

For now I've been cleaning off my work area and putting all the scraps into their appropriate containers! I had such a mess I could not work anymore. Also scanning bills!

Crazy company messed up my Cobra payment! They put it all to the dental coverage and none to the medical so I can not get my prescriptions yet! I told them get it fixed, it's not my fault you posted the payments all to the dental! Frustrating!

So that's how my day is going! How is everyone else's day progressing?

I don't usually watch the news but Mom said they are opening up our state, which I assume means that every county is going green. but while watching that I see where the virus is on the rise in several states west of us. They believe it could be from protests and lack of protection during them. When will people learn. I think even some of the national guard have tested positive now.

DH went to the grocery this afternoon, and while browsing in the fresh vegetable department he saw the Director of the St Joseph County, which is our county, Health Department watching a lady with several children with her, none of the family had masks on. DH said he wandered back and forth in the produce department and kept glancing over at the family. He finally walked over to the woman and told her off for having no masks on her own self or the children (this is after identifying himself), and said if he ever saw them all again without masks he would call Child Protective Services and have her children taken away from her. She and children abruptly left, and all the people watching this going on, who were every one wearing masks, cheered for the doctor’s actions.

I don’t know. I don’t get it. Especially when it’s about the children.

Wow, Kandie, that is unbelievable that the doctor did it!

It's rainy and cold here, only 61 degrees. What a drop in temperature!

Default Hello

Waving hello!

We had a bit of rain on and off, and wind too..nothing like you guys in Wisc or you Kandie. Or you Sharon! It has really cooled off here- almost chilly.

So, my B/P was good this AM and I decided to take a Prednisone tab and have been working like crazy in my craft room. I am in a couple of card kit groups here on SCS, and had 3 kits to get out- one very late from May..... Each month, we send a 'kit' to one person and one month you get craft kits from everyone. We have to follow Angel Policies and all, but it is really fun to discover new and different stamp companies.

I also made Teapot card and another watercolor- I love water coloring and look forward to the new challenge : ) And, a K card, and worked on an ATC for exchanging with a friend in Canada.

Thanks to all who had time and were able to create a card for Sandy! SO very appreciated!

Kandie- my daughters are not best friends, but get along fine now that they are older. My youngest is very serious and studied all of the time, and my DD1 is a fun one- works hard..but all work and no play...LOL you know.
I love that you are picking things up with your toes...I do that on occasion!

Oh Melodie- so sorry about your lilac! We lost a couple this year.... still have one- they smell so wonderful!

Gracie- fun with the Grands! Do they like to make cards? I think they probably think it is heavenly to spend time with you and hubby at the lake! I know I would when I was a kid!

Ann- so sorry you had to spend your afternoon on the phone with insurance- so aggravating!

Catherine- love that your daughters made a blanket fort and a sleepover! So fun!

Hello to anyone I missed- hope you all had a fabulous day!!!

Shelly

Good morning, Ann! Cooler here too, 61 with humidity a bit high at 82. Temps in 70s with overnights around 48. Yay, turn off the a/c and open the windows!

Shelly, so glad to hear your B/P is in a safe zone now! And wow on how many crafts you created, all in one day! You go, girl.

I checked out that watercolor glass, and I really like the idea. I will be trying yesterday’s challenge today.

Catherine, gosh, I remember making sheet tents over my grandmother’s close line, and was that ever run. Your DDs are so precious!

Default Hello

It is such a better day- weather wise- it has cooled down and no humidity! Heavenly! I also have such relief today from taking a Prednisone yesterday.

Off to the Post Office and Trader Joe's, then one more errand.

Spent a while on the phone with insurance today- got billed $3155.96 for my back surgery which was last May. Heck with calling the billing dept at the office, called insurance- we did check, doc is on network etc... I should owe at the most less than $200...... Thankfully!

Glad no headache Kandie!

Ann, I did not sleep much last night either, but do not feel tired ...yet!

Happy Day all!
Shelly

One of my least favorite things to do is make phone calls to insurance companies etc. That frustrates me to no end. Glad it is worked out for you now.

Good morning, ladies. Where is Jan lately? I miss reading her early morning (to me) chats with Jayne.

Shelly, yikes on that back surgery bill! Does it say anywhere on the bill Filed with Your Insurance or good words to that effect, I hope, I hope?


The only thing good on tv this morning is the weather report!


Those of you who shop Hobby Lobby and buy envelopes in the craft section, have you seen that box of pastel-colored note cards and matching envelopes? Those are what I used for my WT challenge cards yesterday. 3.5 x 4.8 inches, and they are sweet! I think I will use them for a while. They remind me of sherbet colors!


I apologize for typos! I promise I do proofread my posts before posting, but lately I still find silly typos. That one finger with the bent joint won’t close all the way so it sticks out when I’m trying to type, and the dang thing hits keys I don’t mean to hit. And also sometimes sends me to web sites I didn’t plan to visit, lol.


DH is on his way to the estate sale which starts today. He is already grumbling, not for the customers but for the help he had setting up. Apparently they weren’t much help and it took longer than it should have to get ready for the sale. He would come home so tired. I’m hoping all goes well today and tomorrow. I might stop by there tomorrow, when everything is at 50%.


(Sigh), hard not to mention that the virus has jumped into increasing again in over 20 states because some people think everything is fine now and are ignoring all the continued warnings. DH’s great-granddaughter, age 10, told him a few days ago that her grandma (former DIL to DH) told her she didn’t have to wear a mask because she had asthma. I mentioned to her that her grandma might be wrong, and we talked about masks she could wear that would still let her breathe. She’s a super-smart young lady, just so sweet.


The trash trucks just went by, so it must be Friday.

I just lost an entire paragraph! I'll just say there have been no new cases in our county and today we go green. Lawmakers have voted to end the emergency declaration, but if they do that, some funding will end immediately. Like the extra $600 those on employment are getting...the governor is fighting against it.

Lawmakers vote to end Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 emergency disaster, but Gov. Wolf says it’s not over - pennlive.com

Good morning all! I want you all to know how much the friendship you have given to me means. Even though we all live far apart we have been there for each other through this crazy time and I truly appreciate it.

It has been a roller coaster week for me. Today is the funeral for my friend Charlene. Because of restrictions, there will be a live video of the service with the service itself by invitation only. I received an invitation. It would have been easier to sit at home and watch the video and cry like a baby in my own space. It's not about what's easy though, it's about being there for her family. I shall get back to creating and posting tomorrow.


Have a wonderful day!

Good morning all. And many hugs to you all, my friends.

And the next chapter in the Schwartz saga... DH found water in the basement. Apparently the sump pump didn't kick in. But it is working, because we tested it. Anyway, a few boxes got wet, which meant we needed to check on those. Most of my boxes down there are books and magazines. One of the boxes was clothes... get this... size on the box... SMALL... I'm pretty sure they are all pre-pregnancy. My daughter turned 34 this year. You think I might need to get rid of those clothes???? Duh! Definitely a case of out of sight - out of mind. So that is on my agenda for today.

Melody, love the box of clothes marked Small, lol!! I am glad to hear the pump is still working!

Annette, sweet prayers for you, and for the family and friends attending the funeral, either in person or by video broadcast.

Have fun with the kiddies, Ann!

I have my cards done for today. Now that I’ve wasted the entire morning in the craft room, it’s time to kick this body into gear and get chores done.

But first, lunch!

I have done my walk, went out for ice cream with DH, and now doing wash. I have yet to make it to the craft room.
Where are both Jane and Jan?
Ann, I am glad you can enjoy your grands again.
Melody sorry about the water is your basement. So funny about the box of clothes! We do tend to hang on to stuff don’t we? LOL

Jayne's taking a bit of a break. We All need a break now and then.

A friend from church passed away this morning. He had a major heart attack two days ago. His wife and I served on our women's group board at church for many years. She always tells me how happy she was when we invited them to our wedding because they were new to our church. So that was 45 years ago. He was retired but continued trucking up until this.

Seriously, there was one tiny little shirt that had St. Martin on it, which is where we went on our honeymoon (40 years ago)!

Default Hello

Kathy- so sorry for your loss! Seems like these losses come more often that expected to those we think are too young!!!



Our dear college friend had a loss of a friend-just 61- we have met her many times at our friends parties- so very heartbreaking!



I woke up feeling better but not myself, so did chores, and passed on going to Chicago to look at real estate with daughter- hubby still went, I spent the afternoon sewing masks..... I bought some new fabrics and am making the masks reversible; ) I was able to sew a few before hubby left and made a couple for my daughter too. The elastic I ordered early April just arrived, so figuring out what is the best length of elastic for these masks.



I have some cute 4th of July fabrics with R/W/B patterns and pups too.



Melodie- I have not worn size small since about 2nd grade!



I have to head to bed! I am still waiting to hear about my laptop- last word was ordering parts. It has been 3 weeks my laptop was sent in for the Geek Squad to work on mine!

Hello Ladies, just a quick hello, this is the first day I've been to my craft room for four days, we've been doing a job that we'd put off for a while, we had a leak, well rain water was running under the log shed and then under the path, coming out of a step that goes under the villa, I had to go down and fill in the hole that the water had made and then tile the steps, a messy job and then when I'd finished I couldn't get out, ha ,ha,
if you had seen me trying to get my foot on a tiny ledge with Steve pulling me up, well lets say it wasn't a pretty sight!

Happy Saturday! A 20 degree drop in temp between yesterday morning and today, back into the 50s. My poor head, at least yesterday was a really good day.

Kathy, I’m so sorry to hear of your friend’s passing. You knew him for a long time, a blessing there, but also such sadness because of being a long-time friend. Prayers being sent to you and to the friend’s family.

Melody, 40 years ago? That’s truly a long time to hang on to boxes of clothes, lol. That must be a record!

Shelly, I’m glad to hear you are feeling better, at least somewhat better, and felt up to doing a few things. Take it easy, though. And why in the world has the geek squad hung onto your laptop for so long?

Jan, so glad to hear from you! I’m glad Steve was able to pull you out, at least you didn’t have to stay stuck!

Dusty made it out the door this morning but put three feet onto her pad and then peed all over the porch and pad both. Ugh. I just scrubbed the porch yesterday. It took her a bit to wake me up to take her out, so it’s probably good that she at least made it out the front door!

After those high winds it has taken me two days to rake up all the branches and twigs in the front yard.

The state has moved on to stage 4 of the restrictions, all businesses are now open, bars at 50%, stores up to 100% now. However, the virus cases are going back up, up, up, just like the predictions, because some people are just not concerned enough to remain careful.

I plan to stop by DH’s sale this morning and see what is left at 50% off. I have been mentioning (several times) how much I loved this one small chest and a mirror with shelves that sits on top. I knew it was expensive, it’s very old yet in such clean condition, and I have a place already to put it, but I don’t need it, and it would replace a lovely picture that I have hanging in that spot. What’s that called? A conundrum? Do I need it, no. Do I want it, yes. I’m almost hoping someone buys the dang thing so I’ll quit thinking about it, lol.

What’s our inspiration challenge for today? I’m going to go check it out. Have a great day, ladies.

I need to quit looking at the obituaries. I just found out that a woman I knew shot her son and then killed herself! She was 58 and mennonite and when my boys were little we would go to her house every summer for a Bible school. She was a neighbor back then, but lived in a nearby now. I'm just in shock! She was quiet and sweet and loved having the Bible school every summer.

Evening everyone! I have a quick moment while son number four is playing with the grandkids to check in.

They are here for the weekend as son number one is moving his business to a larger location. Lots of work since they are doing all the moving themselves.

Will catch up later...hugs everyone!

I'm hoping they update the story. I just cannot picture her doing anything like that! And it said her son was a sweet hard worker. My mind cannot wrap itself around any reason.

Well, I came to check out the chat thread and it looks like everyone stopped chatting. Guess zoom is better than typing. I have loved getting to see some of you and getting to hear what you have been up to. I saw a couple of good funnies not long ago. I'll see if I can find them again. I think they were on friends FB pages. Well, guess I'll go have dessert. We had a late lunch and so we are only having dessert for dinner. TTFN

Default Hello

Hello

I am up very late tonight! We had friends over for a social distancing visit- we stayed outside and around the fire pit even though it was chilly out. We have known each other for years...



Kathy- so sorry about your old friend- how horrible! Such a sad story!



Ann- best of luck on the new business for your son!



Pat- I would love to try to zoom tomorrow! Anyone up for a zoom in the afternoon? Hubby is golfing all day tomorrow- I am hoping to see the craft room.



told a neighbor we could get together tomorrow and my daughter will stop in tomorrow as well. My daughter put in a bid on a place, but there are others interested and she did not offer full asking price, so we'll see what happens.....



Kandie- I am excited to hear if your piece was there for 50% off or not : )





Jan- glad your hubby was able to retrieve you from the hole!!!



Happy Sunday and new week to all!



Shelly

Good morning, everyone.

Kathy, my former FIL used to say he read the obituaries everyday to see if he was in them yet. When he didn’t see his name, he knew he was still alive. Unfortunately, he did see names of people he knew.

Some people like to go to funerals to catch up on gossip. It’s like a family reunion.

Hi Pat, hi Shelly!

I did make it to DH’s sale. It opened at 9. I made it by 9:30, and would have been there at 9 if a little dog hadn’t suspected I was leaving and did everything her canine brain could think of to sideline me. She kept coming into the bedroom, wanting me to follow her back to the living room, and then she’d jump up on the couch and look at me. Talk about feeling guilty for planning to leave, lol. She is a master at giving a human a guilt complex.

Catherine, does Honey do that to you?

I was thrilled to see SOLD on the two pieces of furniture, written in DH’s crooked handwriting. I did buy a small blanket for a dollar, and a Mary Engelbreit (sp) book on her favorite drawings and a beginner’s sewing book. And a huge spider plant. I hate seeing plants for sale at these things because I’m afraid no one will buy them and then they’ll die. I checked with DH when he got home last night, and he said the rest of the plants did sell. Whew!

SO! Today I get to clean up the pieces and figure out where in the WORLD they will go in this already-crowded house.

And I have ideas for a card for yesterday’s inspiration challenge that I’d like to get done.

What are the plans for all you ladies today?

Since it's our 45th anniversary we are going to go out for a bit. Maybe a trip to Michael's for me and a trip to Dicks for DH. And a bite to eat. I guess I should get dressed.
