  1. Happy Weekend, Buddies. So much to do, so little time. Off to farmer's market here in just a bit and then a longer walk with the dog before it becomes ungodly hot. Need to correct homework, write up an exam for Microbiology class, get some housework done, and some sewing. SC is in there snoozing, so tiptoeing around a lot this weekend. Pool trip is in the plan, as well as a bike ride later. Last night I sat out a little and enjoyed the evening and my new tiki torches. Unfortunately, my feet and ankles were chewed up but all in all, it wasn't bad. I will need to use some bug spray, I guess when I go out to sit with my dog and enjoy the cool night air. I usually brush her each evening to help keep the shedding down. I get an awful lot of hair off of her, but at least I am not finding it all over the house as much. B - watermelon, coffee L - shredded beef tacos, rice and beans D - salad Jo, I am glad you surfaced - I couldn't remember if you were already on vacation or just getting ready for vacation. WTG staying OP!!! Okay, off to visit my favorite farmers!
  2. For my buddies: “This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”
  3. Good morning, buddies. I am off to work. Will try to catch up with everyone when I am settled in this evening. Have a truly great day.
  4. Rhonda, my new address is 1301 Hickory Avenue, Punta Gorda, Florida 33950. My phone number is still the same.

  5. Karen, I sure do miss you on the board. I miss your informative articles and the recipes!!!


    Hope you are doing well. Will be down there soon and I will call you for a get together.


    Take care. Hug those puppies for me.

  6. Hi, lele, grainne, and bronwyn You are certainly welcome to join in our challenge - it is kind of informal and we are working on personal goals. Rhonda and I have both pledge to donate 50 pounds of food to our local food banks if we meet our group goal of 50 pounds lost. So you are welcome to put your goals here, and post your progress. Post your loss each week (and even if you gain, post it). We have some people starting this week, so just jump in when you can. We post on the Buddy System each day - it is under "buddy groups" and we put up a new post each day, and one for the weekend. We enjoy supporting each other and it may seem like we are sort of a closed group, but we welcome newcomers any time. For the first week I have the following losses noted: Pounds lost: Rhonda 2.2 Katy 1.8 Sandy 1.6 So far 5.6 pounds lost in the first week.

  8. All right, ladies. Going to call it a night - we need to be up around 5:00 a.m. Have nearly everything packed, just a few little things to grab in the morning. We anticipate being back to Florida on Friday evening, so I'll talk with you then.
  9. Karen, I had some of those fresh shrimp for dinner - sauteed with a little garlic and olive oil. Yummy, yummy. I did not take a nap today - was working on SC's slacks and generally puttering around. I used his mother's sewing machine, which is at least as old as I am. It worked pretty well, but only a straight stitch, and no light!!! It has been cool and cloudy here today, with a couple of heavy rains earlier. I did not find a coat, but Scott's cousin will lend me one when i get there, so I won't freeze.
  10. Hi, buddies..... It is pouring rain here - I was going to go to the pool, but guess I"ll just stay here and take a nap!!! Got postcards to address, and plenty of sorting and cleaning yet to do, plus packing...SC still hasn't put his slacks on to be hemmed, maybe he'll just have to roll them up!!! Sandy, you are going to do great...I'm glad Fred is there for you on this, whether you call it a procedure or surgery, you've got a doctor you trust and good family support, plus the prayers of your buddies. Okay, think a nap is in order - SC will be watching the hockey game here in a little bit, perfect time for snoozing.
  11. Yes, Cressa, I'll do that. I think Indianapolis will be okay, though, from what I;ve seen on the weather channel.
  12. Tanya, I have only tried swinging a golf club out behind our house....everyone watching was pretty entertained. SC loves it, and I think it is good for our DHs to have a hobby that does not include us!!!
  13. Karen, I'll be back very late on Friday evening. It is going to be a very quick trip. I am very worried about SC flying but his doctor has given the okay, none of the flights are very long, so any danger about his blood clot is minimized. Hopefully, will still be able to meet up with you at some point. I am due to fly home on the 7th. As far as I know, I have nothing planned for this weekend (other than recovering from my quick funeral trip) and I could do lunch any day next week. I know you have your hands full with Keri, end of the month next week, and all your critters. You are also welcome to come down here, as well. We'll figure something out. I told SC I'm not leaving here without at least 1 buddy visit. I just realized I don't have a coat here - I left it with my son and told him to bring it to the airport when he picks me up at the end of my vacation....I'm going to be plenty cold in Indianapolis. I'm hoping someone will have a jacket I can borrow. Maybe I'll have to run to Goodwill and see if I can find a cheap jacket. I probably have 10 coats and jackets at home!!! All right, going to have to hem SC's pants...my next husband better have really long legs, I am tired of hemming slacks and jeans!!!
  14. Good Morning, buddies. Have been up a while - had a strange coughing spell about 5:30 and then couldn't get back to sleep. I think some sort of sinus drainage/coughing thing going on. I feel fine, but have a hacky little cough. Spent yesterday at the beach and then we stopped at my favorite seafood restaurant for dinner. It was just a wonderful day with my sweetheart. We are flying to Indianapolis tomorrow then home on Friday. I won't have computer access (well, maybe at the motel) so will be out of touch for a couple of days. Today's food: B - mini bagel w/FF cream cheese, grapefruit L - chicken vegetable soup, salad D - shrimp tacos, corn and black bean salad, mango, avocado S - string cheese, yogurt
