    Wow, I’ve impressed myself with my loooong post this morn. Maybe my brain is making some progress! Woohoo!

    Sorry, I just couldn’t resist a pep talk for me. ;)

    Good morning. Beautiful sunrise this a.m. Going to be a nice day. I shall miss these comfy days.

    No big plans today. I really would like to get the a/c out of the window and put away for the season, but it had become iffy situation for my continuing to do it alone before I got sick. Suppose I will need to be patient and wait until one of the boys happens by. Yet another blow to my independence! ugh

    Brenda, I’d have loved a video of that “tub” taking a stroll in the yard! That is too dang funny!! And the story of the mud brought back memories for me. My brother and I went “sffwimin” in a large mud puddle when we were kids. One of my mama’s all time favorite stories and after she passed, I found a photo of the 3 of us by the car on Easter morning. She had made note on the back that this is the puddle where Kathy and Jackie went “sffwimin”. I treasure it so much. Thanks for the memories!!

    Snow, that just sounds like too much fun!! And fun is just fun-er when shared with loved ones!

    Sherry, I know what you mean about the grass. I’ll have to hire mine done this time, so will hope for the last time thing, also. Seems so silly with my shinny new mower sitting in the garage, but they assure me I will get zapped by the vest if I try riding it. Phooey and double phooey!

    Stewart, enjoy your day!

    Have a happy day, ALL! KB

    Howdy, ON! So good to see you and know you are improving!! Didn’t realize you’d stopped FB’ing. Left my last message for you over there.

    Are you still sewing to keep your hands busy? Obviously, you can’t use the machine yet, but hope you’re getting there.

    Big ol Texas sized huggers! KB

    Good morning. Looks like a nice day forming. No plans for me..THANK GOODNESS! LOL

    Marcia, the alarm wasn’t too hard to figure out. At first, it seemed a little weird to hear “me” talking to “me”….then, I realized I’ve been doing it for years anyway! Hehehe

    Brenda, loved the chicken story! And yes, slow down a step or two sometimes and just kick back and enjoy. But, be sure you face in a direction that won’t give you a view of all those things that still need doing while you are sitting on your butt! LOL

    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. It is still morning here…but not for long. LOL

    My reminder thing came in the mail today, so I’ve been playing with it. You can record your own messages, so it’s pretty kewl. I know it’s sad when a person needs an alarm to be reminded to eat or take medicine. It’s been many years since I had any sort of schedule and I just can’t seem to get into the groove on my own. ;)

    Have a happy day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. Wow, I slept in this morning. Who gets up at 9:30?! In my defense, I have had 2 FULL days AND nights. It was all good and had such good family times, but it is getting harder and harder to keep up with these kiddos and all of their activities.

    I think I may have finished up one more of the paperwork ordeals yesterday. A lady called to confirm some ID numbers and said she’s send it right in. Yeah! That would be TWO victories for the home team this week!! Maybe this is going to slow down for a while, but then I suppose some of it will start over with a new year. UGH Something dumb…finally found out the reason I am having to pay the 80% at my reg. doctor’s office is because the hospital was slow in filing their stuff, which means my deductible wasn’t met in time. It’s costing me $97 per visit! Everybody stays on my case constantly about getting things filed on time. Go figure!

    Today is mine, mine, mine…as far as I know. Hehehe So much still needs doing, I never know where to start these days. First thing I need to do is go on hunt for wasp nests. Every afternoon my front and back yard are full of them. I’ve already eradicated 2 on the front porch. I’m a bit nervous that they may be in one of the trees.

    LOL…guess I’ll close this out. Looks like I’m going to be busy at the door. Kids are out in force selling tickets for the Fall Festival.

    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. Nice day. Will be able to have doors open this afternoon.

    Today is my sister’s birthday and I’ve promised to make her supper. It’s going to be pork chops and……. something. LOL But I will make her favorite peach cobbler. It will be alot for me, but I know I will be forgiven any mis-steps, so it will be ok.

    Have a wonderful day! KB

    Good morning. Rain and storms last night and cool, cloudy and windy today.

    Thank you girls so much for the emails. I will try to do a better return when I get rid of this blasted cold and feel human again.

    Have a wonderful day, ALL and a very Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends! KB

    Good morning! Sunny out, but quite chilly here inside, still.

    Feeling so awful. Not heart…have full blown nasty, hateful, drippy, sneezing, coughing cold! UGH They made me have pneumonia shot in hospital, but it still seems to have made it’s way into my chest. Already have dr. appt. tomorrow to get test results, so guess she can just deal with it all for the price of one! ;) When dealing with medical bills, every little break is a good thing!

    Marcia, this vest is to save me from sudden death syndrome. It will shock me, but I have to die first. :) I know…sounds pretty silly! Anyway, the worst part is that the control box weighs almost 5 lbs and makes my arthritis mad, no matter what part of me I hang it from. LOL Only 6 wks to go…I can make it….I can make it….
    How is the wedding coming? I’ve missed so much!

    Sherry, enjoy your kids and Thanksgiving! Hope your mom feels better soon!

    Tigsy, good you can remember to take your pill. We’ve been searching for an answer to me forgetting mine. Think it will be a med watch with reminders. Maybe if it’s tied on, I can’t loose it. Hehehe

    Brenda, what in the world are you going to do with all those muffins! I assume there is a charity involved.

    Fred, I had awful shivers just reading your tooth story! Bless your heart…and mouth!

    Stewart and Alberta, prayers of healing from here.

    Brain locking up. Have to go now. Have good Lord’s Day! KB

    Good damp morning! We got a little blow, a bit of rain, lots of lightening and a norther. I had to dig out a pair of joggers and a long sleeve shirt. Always thankful for every drop of moisture.

    Thanks again for the wonderful good wishes and especially prayers. I actually feel pretty good. I’m ready to get whatever this thing is with my leg fixed. I swear sometimes the waiting on the results of tests is worse than the ailment! LOL I will be in SUCH a better mood in 6 more weeks when I get rid of this life vest!!!!

    <span style=”font-size: 13px;”>I’ll try to be more faithful. Have a fantastic day, ALL! KB</span>

    Wow, thanks ladies!

    I’m sorry about disappearing. Major heart attack, lots of damage. Then heart failure, diabetes…..  Have to wear life vest 24/7. The no sugar and no salt diets are just horrible. New tests couple days ago. Now they found cyst not related to heart problems. Will find out what’s going to happen with that Mon. No more rehab (3 days a week) until that is settled. Just falling apart piece by piece. LOL

    Honestly, I need a full time secretary to keep up with all the paperwork for all this mess.

    Not allowed outside much. Can’t even ride my new mower or straighten out garage before winter. :(

    Heart no longer has ability to pump required amount of blood to brain, so I’m kind of fuzzy headed. Especially, hard for me to understand what I read most times. Makes computer hard. I was getting some better with my thinking and he doubled my heart meds this week. Like starting over. ugh

    Hope you are all well and ready for winter coming. I’ll be back around when I feel comfortable that I won’t say some off the wall something while my brain is out of gear.

    Thanks again for remembering me!! KB

    Good afternoon. Still so cool and overcast here, but no more rain. Heat is on it’s way back. UGH
    Sister got her new washer. I tried to help, but we just couldn’t get the hoses loose from the faucet. She’s been on a plumber’s list for a month for some little things, but he says it will still be 3 weeks before he can come. He’s good and trustworthy enough to wait on, but geeze….
    She’s running late trying to get packed, so I loaded up her laundry and took it over. Picked up the pups, too. Now they can just hit the road. I hope they have a really good time. They need/deserve it.
    I got my instructions on making the bottle for the orphan baby calf. They just discovered he is blind. He sure can find that bottle, though. ;) Have to go twice a day. Hope I don’t forget him! Vet said they need to teach lead so they can get him to go where they want him to go. That should be a trip! LOL
    Guess I’d better go let Jo out. I think he’s more interested in chasing squirrels than needing to “go”. Reese has been chewing again, so will have to keep an extra eye on her. I think my weekend will be a long one!
    Brenda, I freeze grapes and then drizzle a bit of Magic Shell over them. They don’t even realize they aren’t getting much chocolate! ;)
    Have a great day, ALL! KB
