Thank you, Anna and Regina, for sending encouragement today.
Challenge done.....yowzer, that was tough......much tougher than I anticipated! Got down on the floor to do the challenge after putting a couple of pans of brownies in the oven to bake. The first 5 weren't horrible; the second 5 ended at #4.....no way could I eke out the fifth V. Need to add this exercise to the crunches I do each night and the plank I attempt to hold for a count of 10.
Day started and ended with bright sunshine.....in between we were treated to a good rain. Tomorrow is predicted to be sunny, but the rest of the week will be rainy. Perhaps, the rain will wash away most of the sand that is on the sidewalks and street. April 19, 2015 at 1:51 UTC
I'm an astute listener....providing a sounding board for friends and family. I tend to pick up on things they don't say and ask questions that might change or redirect their focus/perception.
Our day started out with clouds and lots of rain. Then the afternoon turned to blue sky and sunshine; temp reached 67 degrees. Big Al and I ran some errands; then I got in some porch time with a book and a glass of half and half. Jewels has decided she likes napping on her rug on the back patio...catching a few rays.
Do you have some fun stuff planned for the weekend? April 18, 2015 at 0:52 UTC
My best friend, Becky
Thank you Annell for sending encouragement. April 17, 2015 at 1:18 UTC
I'll snack on the baked sweet potato that's waiting in the refrigerator.
Couldn't get on my computer at all last night.....it went all hinky on me. Called my SIL....he is magical when it comes to computers. He and the grands came by tonight and he did this and did that and now it seems to be running ok. Missed completing yesterday's challenge; messed up whatever I had going on for a streak. Oh well.....could have been worse; could have been better.
Another pretty day here with lots of sun and blue sky. Scattered showers are forecast for tonight and tomorrow.
Hope you've had a great Thursday. April 17, 2015 at 1:00 UTC

Done.....but, ouch it hurt! Guess that means I should practice this one. Went to O/A exercise class this morning and then, in between walking Jewels, was on the go most of the day. Joints are feeling it tonight.
Another pretty day here; not quite as warm as yesterday, but quite acceptable. Forecast is for several more sunny days. Lawns are starting to show just a little bit of green; more sunny days should advance the greening.
Lunch at Taco Bell; dinner at Ground Round......had salad at both meals; neither were exactly diet meals, but could have been lots worse!
Happy Tuesday.......NCIS night! April 15, 2015 at 0:45 UTC

Done......finally remembered to do the blinking near the end of DWTS.
Weather-wise it was an even better day today than yesterday. Bright, sunny and temp was 70 degrees......warmest day of the year so far. Right now the temp is still at 67 and quite windy.....22 mph with gusts to 37 mph.
Dentist called this morning and I able to got in this afternoon and have the temporary only put back on. Permanent one is still scheduled for the 23rd. Will surely be glad when this completed.
Happy Monday everyone! April 14, 2015 at 2:28 UTC
Thank you again, Jerri, for sending encouragement.
Retirement is a great money saver regarding clothes.....no need to suit up every day. Nowadays, its jeans, a shirt, and sneakers. Probably spend more money for my sneakers than my clothes.
I can mend, replace buttons, do hems, etc. something more extensive will go to the seamstress. I shop either at end of season sales, the consignment shop, or at the thrift shop that benefits the animal shelter.....retail prices send me into sticker shock! Clothes that require drycleaning are a thing of the past....if it's not washable it doesn't come to my house.
Beautiful day here.....sunny and 60 degrees. People in convertibles were driving with the top(s) down, college kids were outside in shorts and t-shirts, and the Harley riders were enjoying the day.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. April 13, 2015 at 1:10 UTC
Thank you, Jerri M., for the encouragement you sent today.
I receive quite a few catalogs and enjoy leafing through them......very cheap entertainment because I never order anything. I'm also ruthless about keeping the catalogs culled....the catalogs are all kept in one basket and when a new one comes in, the previous one goes out.
My weakness is buying magazines, especially ones for cooking, storage solutions, and small space decorating. But as of the first of year I put myself on a no-buy restriction....so far, so good....no new magazines have come in the house. I'm gradually getting a handle on the paper clutter, but it is an ongoing battle.
Another day of mixed weather here....cloudy in the a.m. with sprinkles, flurries, and lots of wind. Then this afternoon the sky cleared and the sun came out; temp actually reached 50! Finally, tonight the wind subsided.
Had to call and leave a message for my dentist this afternoon. The temporary onlay that was put on an upper molar fell off and I'm not scheduled till the 23rd to have the permanent one put on. I'm not expecting to hear back till Monday....in the meantime, I'm hoping the tooth doesn't start hurting. Will be eating/chewing carefully the rest of the weekend.
Watched some of the Masters with Big Al late this afternoon....just the last few holes. My understanding of the game could fit on the head of a pin. I've learned to not ask questions except during commercial breaks!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. April 12, 2015 at 0:23 UTC

Done.....tonight before dinner at Big Al's. His youngest daughter and family arrived this afternoon to visit Papa. The SIL is a whiz in the kitchen so he was in charge of dinner....steaks on the grill, plus lots of extras. I was in charge of the salad and loading the dishwasher. Easy assignments.
We had a regular medley of weather today.....choices presented were clouds, sun, wind, light rain, driven rain, and more wind.....temp in the mid 40s.
Made my 8 week run to donate blood this morning....then to post office for stamps and a shipping box. Outside of walking Jewels, that was about the extent of my day's activity. I've found that I'm really in need to a good nap after giving blood......along with lots of water. It's much easier to just give in and take a nap than to get lightheaded when I try to keep doing stuff.
Hope everyone is ready for a great weekend. April 11, 2015 at 0:51 UTC
