Today will be another hot and humid day. We didn’t get a drop of rain and everyone around us did. Looks like that will be how it goes for the next ten days. Remember this winter when we were complaining about the cold and I did say there would be a day that we were wishing for cooler weather. Well that is now. LOL. I would like to get out early and get some things done outside but the heat will tell. I had a good day yesterday and did get some things done outside and also got my bedroom dusted and vacuumed. I was so glad to get that done. I walked 15 minutes and had a total of 4,452 steps for the day. Will work on my bathroom today after I come back in. Hope today is a good day for everyone.
Today is the start of another work week and I am going to hit the road running. I am feeling pretty good this morning and hope to get a lot done. I am so waiting for this humidity and heat to break but not looking good for the next 10 days again. We didn’t get any rain so far and we sure need it. It has stormed and rained all around us but not luck here. A little shot this morning but not going to hold my breath. Yesterday was a take care of Sharon day as allergies and asthma was severe and no walking or moving at all. I did get some good reading done and did play some games on the tablet but that was it. I had 2,526 steps for the day. Hope you all have a great day today and are safe and healthy.
Sharon, here there are plenty of places to stay in their car and sit to watch fireworks as they do them over the river, that runs through our town and some places where they can also get out of their car, I'm not sure why they were cancelled but it was done way b4 now, no parade either
They can shoot off the fireworks until after this evening, then no more until next year, I believe. and not after 11:45 p.m.
Well the big day is over and hope you all had a good and safe day. I didn’t get to see the fireworks this year because they moved it but the weather did hold out with no rain. Now I hope that we get some rain today. We might but knowing us it will go all around us. LOL. Yesterday was another fair day for me. I did walk 12 minutes and got 4,233 total steps for the day. Marshall did make it over and mow and I got out and watered the plants and filled the bird bath. I did a lot of small clean up chores in the house and did a lot of reading. I would like to get some real cleaning done today if it is a good day. Had kind of a tough night so not sure what will happen. Hope it is a good day for you all.
Rosie, it isn't legal to shoot off fire works here in town but everybody does it anyway. Our display was done in a park where there was lots of parking and people sat in their cars to watch. No outside place to sit.
Well, it's been a quiet 4th here so far, one of my granddaughters is suppose to be here with her 2 boys and maybe her hubby, for a few days, They'll set up a tent as I have no room for sleeping space, Tents are fine.
No fireworks here, tonight as they were cancelled as was the 4th of July Parade but, there will be people out tonight shooting them off, I saw the fireworks store was busy, today
Happy 4th of July to those that celebrate. It will be a hot one here and humid. What is new. There is a very slight chance of some rain tonight. I found that they will be having the fireworks display but they have moved it to a park where people can watch from their cars and lots of people will be able to see them from their homes near by. I guess I won’t be able to see them this year but that is all right. Yesterday was not as productive a day as the one before. I did do 12 minutes of walking but had 4,619 steps. I didn’t move around as much. I was pretty short of breath and just didn’t have the energy so didn’t push myself. Today is another day. Hope you all have a great 4th and be safe.
Here we are at our holiday weekend. It will be hot and humid and uncomfortable for us. We have had a lot of days in the 90s here already this summer and so we will probably be above average. I don’t mind the heat so much as I mind the humidity. Yesterday was a productive day for me and I walked 12 minutes and had a total of 6,125 steps for the day. It shows that I was pretty active. I did some cleaning in my kitchen and also dusted and polished the furniture in the bedroom. I watered my plants and picked up dog doo. Lots of little chores got done. Hope today is as productive and maybe a little more walking. I would love to get the bathroom cleaned. Hope you all have a great day.
Sorry it was a blah day for you Rosie. Hope it got better. We all have them.
Good morning and it is going to be a hot one with high humidity and sunny with light breeze. I sure wish we could loose the humidity and heat for a few days so I could open up the house and get some fresh air but the 10 day forecast doesn’t look promising. This is setting out to be a bad breathing summer for me. I would sure like to get out in the garden and get some more things done before it gets completely away from me again. Yesterday was a fair day with only 8 minutes walking and 4, 112 steps for the day. I did get a load of blankets washed and did some other small chores around the house. I am trying to stay busy and hope the pred really kicks in full force soon. Hope you all have a great day.
Rosie, hope you enjoyed your outing with your step sister. I am sure it was nice to get out.
I woke up to rain this morning and it was needed. It didn’t seem to storm so that is good. There was a little thunder and lightning but I think it was more off to the south of us. I sure wish the dew point would go down and I could open up the windows but doesn’t seem like that will happen for a while. I sure can see a very high electric bill this month. I have lots of things I can get done in the house so that is good. Yesterday was a pretty good day. I did get some laundry done and walked for 8 whole minutes. I had a total of 4,577 steps for the day. I made a nice chicken enchilada cheesy casserole and it turned out really good. It was pretty easy to make too so that was nice. Hope you all have a good day.
Good morning. It is so muggy this morning. It will not be quite as hot but the dew point will be around 70. We are looking at storms this afternoon and into the night so hope it turns out we just get lots of rain but no storms. We can really use the rain. Did end up at the doctor yesterday and it is the first human contact since February. I do not have blood clots but have inflammation in the veins with no infection. He put me on a round of prednisone for my breathing and said it would also help the feet and legs some. He gave me a prescription cortisone cream to use also. Sure hope these things work and sure hope that I don’t get sick now that I have been out, I really found out that the masks make it so hard for a person with breathing problems to breathe. He did tell me that I should definitely go to my pulmonary appointment next month otherwise to stay home away from people because I am one of those in the high risk group. I will listen to my doctor. We did a round of blood work and my sodium and all other levels are excellent so that makes me very happy. Maybe I will be able to get some things done this week with the prednisone. LOL. No walking yesterday and only 2, 870 steps for the day. Have a good day.
I have the city water so have my hose hooked up to the faucet and water from there. It all costs money but the meter is included with the water bill so didn't have to purchase one.
Sharon, hope your Dr. appointments goes/went well, I/my feet tend to swell up by late or mid day, especially in this hot weather.
My DD has planted a garden and some flowers, and bought bird feeders, so she has them in front of her bedroom window I have one out back by my dining room window, but, I have to get up to see them, she has to water all of those plants, garden and flowers by hand unless it rains, because I have city water and where we used to be able and had a meter hooked to my outside water spicket, (sp). was furnished by the city, but, no more, we had to return those meters in and buy a meter from them for 5 hundred dollars to put in the basement to get credit on my water bill, I told her, she would have to water them by hand, well the first year she didn't like that, but, now she waters them with a sprinkle can, Oh well, their/the flowers and stuff are doing good. I just can not afford to buy one of those meters,
Good morning. It has been a tough weekend. My feet and legs due to the fluid and swelling have really been sore and they get really red and hot by the time night rolls around. The pain in the shin area is quite severe so have contacted the doctor by email and will wait to see what he wants me to do. I always worry about blood clots and sure don’t need those. I got out early yesterday and got the watering done and filled bird feeders and bird baths,. I only had about 2,320 steps due to the pain in the leg. Hope it is nothing serious and maybe a little heat will help. Hope you all have a good day.
Have a doctor's appointment this afternoon to see what is going on with my legs so maybe that will help.
It is sunny out this morning but dew points are very high and it is going to get in the 90s. I will get out and water the flowers and then come in and work inside today. Much too hot to work outside, I did get some things done outside yesterday so very happy for that. I didn’t get many steps in but also didn’t get any walking in. I had a really tough breathing day with the humidity. Steps were only 2,707. Will try to do better today. Hope you all have a good day,
It is Friday. I am looking forward to a lovely day in the low 80s with sunshine, low humidity and light breeze. Yesterday got hot at 90 with high humidity. We did get some rain but no storms so that was good. Not sure how much rain but a couple of nice showers and there will more coming next week. I did walk 12 minutes and had a total of 4, 216 steps for the day. I got all my plants except 4 in the ground and also dug up the ground and planted some beets and bush green beans so it was a very productive day. I also got the flowers watered. It feels good to get it done. I will try get the last of the plants in the ground today if not too wet. I have several things I want to do today and will work outside as long as I can. Tina will get groceries today for me and Marshall will mow. Hope you all have a great day.
Rosie, good for you on doing your knee exercises. If it helps then its good to do them.
Well, I believe we all need days of rest, yesterday I began my knee exercise again as they help with stability and balance, I believe and I need to do some this afternoon, I did some this morning, and then I'll try and do some this evening about 7:30 p.m. It's been cloudy. windy and sunny here
Good morning all. We are looking at a good warm up into the 90s and humid. Today will be near 90, sunny in the morning and clouding up this afternoon with wind. It looks like we could get some rain this afternoon into the evening. Will like that without the storm. We could use the rain. Hope to get out early and get what I need to done in the garden before it rains. Yesterday was not a good day. I didn’t even walk. It was a total rest day. Hope today is much better and that you all have a good one too.
Well, we can always use rain and rain it did last night, it thundered and we also had lightning, big loud thunder, at first I thought something was going on outside, but soon realized it was big loud thunder Wow
It is a beautiful morning. It is cool with beautiful sunshine and will be in the mid 70s with a little wind. I am going to get out and work in the garden some more today. Yesterday was a good day and I got a lot done in the garden. I did a lot of hoeing and planted some more flowers. Today I hope to get close to done with the flowers. I did walk 12 minutes and had a total of 4,785 steps for the day. Hailley got her hair cut and she does have some hot spots on her that I am working on but her skin looks pretty good otherwise. Hope everyone has a great day.
Good morning. It is going to be sunny here with temps in the 70s and light breeze, It will be a perfect day for me to get out in the yard and get some gardening done. I really need to get at the weeding. I think I can hoe a lot of it out. I still have some plants to get in the ground so will work on that too. Hailley will get her hair cut and things should be pretty good today. Yesterday was a day of leisure, I had 3,101 steps for the day so didn’t really get much done. Hope you all have a good day.
Good morning. It is sunny here and going to be a lovely day in the mid 70s with light wind. I can take those kind of days. It did rain some again last night so that was good. I will see what I can get done outside today. The last couple of days have been very tough with breathing. Yesterday I didn’t even walk so only had 1,917 steps for the day. I am going to move today even if it is very slow. I an having some trouble with the neck and shoulder so trying not to overdo it and also have had a lot of fluid in the ankles and they were really swollen and causing pain in them. It will go away. It usually happens at least once or twice a year. Hailley gets a haircut tomorrow so will be glad to have that done with. Hope you all have a great day.
The rain has stopped and it will be a lovely day today. It will be in the 70s and low dew points with light breeze. Couldn’t ask for a better day. Yesterday was a little better with 16 minutes walking and 4,117 steps for the day. I did a few things around the inside of the house and Tina brought me some fresh asparagus and had some for dinner. It was so good. Hope today is a good one for all.
We had rain overnight and not sure how much or how hard because I didn’t wake up to it. It is still raining very lightly this morning. Of course Hailley had to go out and go under the deck where it is all muddy so she was not my favorite. I made here run around on the driveway until she got most of the mud off. Good thing she has small feet. LOL. It was so hot and humid yesterday. I felt really good but it was one of those days where I just had no get up and go. I sat down at noon and ended falling asleep and slept till about 2:30. I must have needed the sleep. I walked 12 minutes and got a total of 2,824 steps for the day. Not too impressive. LOL. I guess my body needed the extra rest. I have had swelling in my ankles and feet and they are sore from it so it is a little harder to walk. It is going down now and it is something that always seems to happen to me in the hot summer. Today I am feeling good so far so hope I can get some things done inside. Hope your day is a good one.
Rosie, we must not have had any storms because I didn't hear anything but we did get some rain.
It is hump day and going to be a hot one. Yesterday was 98 with high dew points and strong winds. Today will be much the same only there are chances of severe thunderstorms moving in with a cold front this evening. I would take the rain but hope not the storms. The heat and wind really dry things out. I will need to get out and water the flowers again this morning and hope it rains so I don’t have to do it again tonight. It is 74 right now and the dew point is 64 so quite muggy. Yesterday was a good day but must not have moved as much because steps were down. I walked 12 minutes and had 3,625 steps for the day. I did get out and clean up after Hailley and filled the bird baths and watered the flowers and fed the birds. I also washed my chair blanket and Hailleys blanket. I need to do this quite often due to Hailleys skin condition. I also finally got my vegetable pasta salad made and it sure is good. I love a good salad. Hope you all have a good day.
Good morning on the hot humid day. It will be mostly sunny today with highs in the upper 90s and some wind. Dew points will be in the upper 60’s. We are at 72 already this morning and dew point is 63. I will not be working outside except to water the plants and clean up after Hailley. Yesterday was a fairly good day. I walked 12 minutes and had a total of 4,549 steps. I did 4 loads of laundry and did get the watering done and did some extra little chores in the house. Still didn’t get my pasta salad made so will do that for sure today because I want to have it with a hamburger tonight. Hope you all have a good day.
SMJTeller, it is in the 90s this week so feeling real summery to me. LOL.
Rosie, I am trying to keep pushing. Did a little better yesterday.
Well here we are on another Monday. It is partly cloudy and will be hot, 90s, with high winds and partly cloudy skies. Not a good day for working in the yard. I will water and that will be about it. I do have laundry to do so will work on that. Yesterday was a very bad day for breathing so stayed in and relaxed. Had 12 minutes of walking and 3, 1232 steps for the day. Not very good. Today will be better I hope but time will tell. Hailley is slowly improving again and she is already due for a haircut next week. Time is going by so fast. Hope you all have a good day.
Rosie, 90s here today so cool is good. I can do without the wind because it is really whipping out there again this morning.
It is going to be a windy but sunny and warm day,. It will be in the 80s which isn’t too bad. I will get out and get some more done in the yard. I did get some things that need doing done yesterday and was very happy with the day. It felt good to get something done. I did some walking and did get some steps in so that was also a good thing. Hope to do as well today. We might have some rain tomorrow and it will be very hot so probably won’t get outside to do anything then. Hope today is a good day for all.
Good morning. Going to be a lovely day today and I know that I will get out in the sunshine. It won’t be too windy so a good outside day. Tina will get my groceries and Marshall will mow so will get things ready for them. Yesterday I did get some walking in and got a few things done in the house. It was a good day. Enjoy your Friday.
Rosie, I love the cool mornings because it cools off my house and lets me turn on the A/C later in the day.

Good morning. It is sunny here this morning and will be in the mid 70s. A lovely day but will be windy. I can take the wind. I will try get a few things done outside and inside both. Lots of things to do but never enough time or energy. LOL. Yesterday was not too bad a day. I did get some things done and took some time for myself too. I finished a book I was reading and took a nap. I did some walking. Hope you all had a good day.
Yesterday, I called the office, where the guy is the owner, that came to look at the water heater, and I told her, that I told the insurance lady that the furnace most likely needs replacing or fixed, and she said she would make a note of it, but, she was waiting for there paperwork from him so she could submit it to the guy, I worry too much sometimes, but, I want everything fixed. ugh
Yesterday was a rainy day and it was cool. It got into the 60s and was very windy. We really needed the rain so it was so nice to get some. I did some walking and got a few small projects done around the house. Hope to get a lot more done today. Hope you all have a great day.
Rosie, I am with you. I hate waiting when I have things to do and then they don't call anyway so I have to spend another day waiting and putting things on hold. Hope you hear soon.
Sharon, They/the insurance co. was suppose to call me back yesterday, but, she did not, and, I have things I need to do, so, I am not sticking around home, today, and waiting, they can either leave a message with either my grandson or my daughter or on my answering machine, sometimes no news is good news and sometimes not, I just don't like waiting like this and wonder what is going on, lol geez, Looks like a nice day here, sure hope so
Today will be cool, cloudy and rainy. Yesterday was 92 with the dew points in the 70s so very hot and day before was 98. We did get some high winds and rain the last two nights with some wind but nothing to severe. I did walk and get a few things done in the house yesterday. I also took some time for just me. Hope you day was good and today will be better.
Rosie, so glad to hear that the insurance will cover. I will enjoy the cooler weather when I can open up but still way to humid out to open windows.
Good morning. It is going to be in the 90s today with storms moving in for tonight, It is sunny and dew point is going up fast. I will not be working outside today. Maybe a little this morning but not for long. I had a pretty good day yesterday and did get my 15 minutes of walking in and got some things planted in the garden. I also got the bird baths scrubbed and filled. All in all a good day. I watched quite a bit of season two of the Designated Survivor and it has been good so far. Hope to get it caught up soon. Well, hope your day is productive or restful, whatever you decide to do.
Hope that they will cover it too. It is so costly to replace those things.
Yes, someone did come, and had cleaned/dried it out the best he could, but, he said when he tried to light it, it kept going out, the water was up high enough to ruin the water heater and since I have appliance coverage through consumers energy he talked to a head district guy from there, and that guy said it is dangerous to try and use it, so, now I have to try and get a hold of my home owners insurance people to see if it will cover that, per the consumer guy said home owners insurance should cover it, my heating furnace is also down in the basement and I believe it is most likely damaged also, so, Monday, I'll try to get a hold of them and see if my home owners insurance will cover, I was told it should. Consumers did pay for last night's guy, but, now, I have to talk to insurance people, I hate talking on the phone to some people you an not understand. But, I will try on Monday I just pray the insurance covers from my home owners policy
It is now starting to cloud up and we are supposed to get some nasty weather tonight and tomorrow night. I am trying to get as much of my planting done as I can today so that it is in the ground when it rains, I have some in and will get out again as soon as I get done with Hailley’s lunch. Yesterday was not too bad and I did get 15 minutes of walking in and hope to do better today. Time will tell. Hope it is a good day for all of you.
Rosie, did they ever come and fix the water heater. I hate waiting and when they give a time I expect them to be there or let me know they will be late.
Hi all, another new day and it is mid afternoon here, I'm waiting for someone to come and look at my water heater, I have the appliance program through Consumers, and they sent out a work order last night, the people/workers were suppose to be here between 8 am and 12:00 am, and cal me 20 min. b4 they came, by 12:15, still no call, so I called and asked if they got the work order, obviously they did, cause the lady said she would have someone here,as soon as she could, still no call no show. I will be calling consumers asap and letting them know what I think. I am not a happy camper over that. I dislike waiting around like this. and I'm about to head out of my house for places unknown, lol maybe
Boy has this week gone by in a hurry. It has been a warm week with no rain. We got a few drips last night but only enough to wet some of the sidewalk. It does look like it could be more active by Sunday. We really could use the rain. I am hoping to get out and get some things done outside. I did walk yesterday and did do a few things outside. Nothing to write home about but still more than I have been doing. It felt good to do some things. Today is going to be partly cloudy with light breeze and temps about 85. Not too bad. Hope you have a good day.
SMJTeller, you are doing a great job and glad you are here with us on Spark. It is hard to lose weight as we get older but we can do it,.
Rosie, I have never tried the Keto diet I usually don't try diets. I just like to change my way of eating and how much I eat.
Read an article about weight loss through the decades and momentarily got very discouraged. Then I did a self assessment and realized I already know that losing weight as a retiree, senior citizen is not easy. But I am being successful with SparkPeople and will continue this change in my lifestyle after 45 years of unrestrained habits. I'm already down 20 lbs from my high weight and 17 since starting SP.
Good morning all. It is going to be a nice day at about 85 degrees with light breeze and partly cloudy. There is a slight chance of thundershowers but I am sure we won’t get any. It seems like we will have a hot and dry year. I think we had about a week where the grass was nice and green and now they are already turning brown from the heat. I will work out in the garden and yard today. Yesterday I finished up some things in the house and walked a little. Hope to walk more today. Breathing is still very tough. Hope you all have a good day,.
Good morning. It is going to be a lovely day with temps about 86. Sunshine and light breeze. No humidity. It appears it is going to be one of those years as we were 97 degrees here on Monday and that is warm for this time of year. Looks like the high 90s again late this week. What happened to spring? I have outdoor work to do today and will hopefully get some of it done. I got laundry done Monday and yesterday. Hope it is a good week for you all.
Good morning. It is sunny this morning and will be in the 90s with a light breeze. We will have humidity the next few days. Time for the A/C to come on. Yesterday was a quiet day and I caught up on some of my taped shows and did some reading. It was near 90 and I had to turn on the air for a while late in the day to cool off for night. Hope that you have a good day today.
I'm not sure what all they did, I know they were only allowed to go in one at a time, and they were notified when they could walk into the school and get their diploma, and between our Church and another local church they had a Baccalaureate Service for them, with hot dogs and etc b4 the service.I watched it on a stream service, here's a picture of my niece (great) niece
Good morning. It will begin to warm up today with temps in the upper 70s and sunny. I will get out and get some plants in the ground today. It will be perfect weather to do it. I am able to get some walking in and that is making me happy. Hailley is looking better each day and hope that continues. Hope it is a good day for all.
Rosie, it is hard for the graduates this year. Hope they have something nice planned for them.
