    Stella they tell me that having the nails removed is very painful for a cat so I never had it done. That may be why she isn’t eating well, remember two days after surgery things usually hurt the most? I have two dogs, one cat and two “granddogs” that spend their days here when the girls are at work and school so I know all about that hair stuff.
    We broke the record for the hottest 2nd of September today, in fact when they were on the air the temp went up another degree. We had a cooler than normal August so who knows what we might be in for this winter but we have to live with whatever Mother Nature throws at us. Spent some time in the pool so I now have to find something for dinner, then will see if I can find something on tv for tonight.

    No there is not a good instruction book with this one…they apparently think everyone has figured it out themselves. At least I know I can make and answer phone calls…will take another lesson tomorrow night.

    Well I got a pretty good lesson from DD and discovered that the port for the charger is on the bottom. So far we haven’t figured out what the ones on each side is for, she has two phones, one for work and her personal one and she doesn’t have them on either of hers. But at least I know how to make a call and answer one, she put candy crush on it like I wanted that:( but she likes it so she thinks I should too. I will settle for the addictions I already have.

    There are two flat things one on each side, the side I think is the one to plug the charger into is the smaller of the two, the connector from the power source looks just like my old one did. But I can’t get the blasted thing open!!!

    There is a hole in the top of mine but there is a flat connection for the charger. There are two flat ports one on each side and what I THINK is where to plug the charger won’t open, the larger one on the other side won’t either. It is an LG 4Glite if that means something to someone it sure doesn’t me. I will have to wait for DD or DGD to get home and “splain” some of this gibberish to me.

    I still have a couple of boxes I moved here in 2004 that have not been opened. I think if I didn’t need them in all of this time I really don’t need them. I am glad you found your camera equipment so now you can share some of your lovely pictures again.

    Good Morning Wendy, Leslie and all…
    I think Mother Nature is using a different calendar this year. Last month was a cooler August than normal and this month is HOT! Today is the first day of school for our schools..this is the first day of DGD’s Senior Year. It is hard to believe that she has gotten this old so quickly. She is the last of the grand kids for me, the great grands start 2nd grade this year too. How do they get older and I don’t? :( I will get out and do what I have to do early because I sure don’t want to be working in temps close to 100 degrees this afternoon. I did water everything including the greenhouse last night so that should be ok today. I am having problems with my cell phone, it went dead last night so I charged it and this morning it is dead again. Oh Maaannn I don’t want to have to buy a new one right now:( Oh well just when you think the garden is pretty, along comes the weeds:( I hope you all have a wonderful day..stay cool if you are in this extreme heat.

    Karen I loved the chicken salad recipe. The only thing I would change is using mayonnaise instead of miracle whip..never did like that stuff:)
    I will make it and if it is as good as it sounds will make it again for the next church event.

    Good Evening all..or should I say Good night? I spent the day at the parsonage and the turnout was great! Everyone was so amazed at the change in the place and it was good to know how pleased everyone was with it. Came home, fed the animals, it clouded up, had thunder and lightning and not ONE drop of rain. So I went out and watered everything, the greenhouse was like a desert. Went into the pool for awhile to cool off and came inside to get some things cleaned up in here. Spent about an hour on the phone with church business until the battery went dead on the phone(thankfully).Now I am waiting for the news to see if possibly it will rain tomorrow we sure can use it. When our August was below normal temps it looks like our heat will be in September this year. I am trying to let some things go to seed and it looks pretty ratty in places but I need to start collecting some. Until Friday I have nothing on the calendar so maybe I can get some things caught up around here.

    Melissa when I was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration the doctor told me I should eat all colors of vegetables to help in the healing of that. So now I am thinking in addition to the different colored potatoes and peppers I will add the carrots to that mix too. Where do you get the seeds from them?

    That makes me want to plant carrots again! I used to think I could get them at the farmers market so why bother growing my own but if I could have different colors I would do it too.

    Good Morning Wendy, Alma and all…I went to bed early last night so I was surprised that I slept so late this morning. Humidity is high today so not sure what I can get done outside and they predict rain this afternoon. I am going to spend some of the day at the parsonage, we are having an open house for all of our church members to come and see the “new and improved” parsonage. I have a feeling they mostly will come early then we will sit twiddling our thumbs the rest of the day. I am starting to let a lot of things go to seed so I can start saving seeds for next year. I think that is why I don’t mind seeing the gardens go to seed..already thinking of next year:) I have a lot of things that need to be thinned out once it gets cooler so I will probably be sharing some plants later too. I want to get some geranium cuttings started too.
    Have a great Labor Day everyone!

    I came home from church and finished getting dinner ready. By that time the first people were arriving. It was so HOT and MUGGY outside we ate inside. A few brave souls went out to the pool but I don’t swim when the sun is hot. Once the sun moved around the house we all sat on the pool deck and laughed and talked. It was a very pleasant time, lots of good food and good company. Tomorrow we are having an open house at the parsonage so all of the members who want to can come and see what we did. The preacher went home this afternoon to finish packing his stuff and can move in any time he gets back. He has his own home in the central part of the state so he is going to use that for his vacations.

    When you have frogs in your garage you won’t have bugs, I would let them do their job, when the bugs are gone the frogs will go too.
