    :) Peg good luck with your surgery. I'm praying for you. It seems everyone's weather is acting strange, floods, droughts, etc.

    Now we have a tropical storm right off our coast which they say will be a hurricane tomorrow. I am praying it goes out into the Atlantic and away from here.

    I had to go to a funeral this morning and I hate my hair. The perm made it dry and brittle and even rolling it hardly makes it look better. At the cemetery the wind was blowing very strong. When I got back in my van my hair had blown in all directions and looked like I had stuck my finger in a light socket.

    I am sitting here with the heating pad on my leg and the pain has gotten very frustrating. I can hardly put any weight on that leg as it hurts too much to stand on it. I have to keep using it though so it does not get where I can't use it at all. Whining but it is hard not to. I have it easier than Cat and Gabriella. I hope both of you give us an update.

    Everyone have a safe 4th. Andy and Jamie both have birthdays on July 5th. They are 5 years apart. I will probably take them out to dinner. Jeanie :)

    It was 96' here today. Living on the north-facing side of the building, if I stay inside and open the windows wide in the early part of the day, then shut them later on, I don't have to use the AC, but by this evening it turned itself on.

    You have to love air conditioning.

    When I was in my teens many people still didn't have it at all. In Chicago people would sleep along the lakefront in the hopes of a cool breeze.

    Peg, I've been noticing news stories about your flood. Never a dull moment--or maybe it's never a dry moment. Hope this ordeal will end soon for you.

    Well, today we celebrate 43 years of marriage. Amazing that we made it this far, especially after having spent the last year having a house built. It's no joke that many marriages don't survive that process. We've had more "disagreements" in the past year than in the entire 43 years we've been together. I guess we're both just stubborn! Thank goodness the house is in the final stages of completion.

    MS is still acting up, left hand still numb, but at least the silent migraines have let up. Hot and dry here. Peg, please, please send some of that rain here! I would do a raindance if I could!

    Wishing everyone a peaceful 4th.
    Peg, I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Default Happy Anniversary Joan!

    We are still living in the house--on our farm--that we rebuilt over 40 years ago. I can't believe the decisions I made then. How I wish we could gut the inside and open up the rooms. I would make the whole first floor one large kitchen. Lots of room to move around..lots of seating options..lots of room to laugh and visit. My kitchen area would be the living room. Television and stuff like that would be in the closet! (I hate how the television is the focus..or the ipad etc.)

    Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says:"Oh Crap, She's up!"

    :) Hi everyone. Happy Anniversary Joan! Gabriella and Cat please check in. Peg I hope it dries up there. I'm praying for all of you.

    The hurricane, Arthur looks like it is headed for South and North Carolina. We will probably only get a lot more rain. Unfortunately every time we get rain now the Arny Corp of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management release water from Lake Okeechobee into the rivers to the east. The fish kills and algae from those releases cause businesses who depend on being on the river to lose money. They have been promising for years to make a water holding area south of the lake in the Everglades but have done nothing even though they have the federal funds to do it and the property set aside for it.

    I just got up at noon. I am very tired and my leg hurts. I am almost out of groceries so I have to go shopping today or tomorrow for sure. The grocery sales start on Thursday so I think I will order food delivered tonight and wait until tomorrow.

    I am happy y'all are all here. Jeanie :)

    Thumbs up

    (((Jeanie))) I am on the border between Virginia and North Carolina I would hope it brings some rain by the time it gets here. That happened before, I think it was Hugo, but passed right through the area. Thankfully, by the time hurricanes reach land, it starts pulling the force from them.

    It was still a little unnerving to hear how hard it was blowing, and it rattled the roof a few times. Not too bad, but to be in the path of one blowing full force would be terrifying. I hope this one will change course, and move away from everyone.
