    A dear friend from teaching days stopped by today. It made my day. She has family here and I’m delighted that she had enough time to visit us, too. 😊

    Bonus: Sat: Grocery Outlet, Sun: corn muffin gems for fellowship, chopped another tarp load of brush.
    Get to do: take BP, dogs to powerline, USE those torture bands/do that BB&B video, board meeting minutes, Tues: call Sutter Health with Joe’s secondary info, follow up with Dr re: Joe’s annual charges not covered 100%, watch for refund from Interpath for Joe’s labs paid on Feb statement call S, fire district: ongoing: input 2019 call sheets into NFIRS, work with chief on equipment letter, substance abuse policy, NFIRS mutual aid and other missing details, call Credit union re: credit card, ask for boots donator contact info, appreciation letter or certificate to boots donator, index mutual aid files; watch STAS Day 20, declutter sideboard, practice new dances (Do Your Thing, Pure Movies to Wine, Beer, Whiskey, I ain’t never gonna love nobody but Cornell Crawford (Alley cat), A Little Less Broken, One Margarita, I’m so used to being broke, All Night, Nothing but You, Blame it on my beating heart, Homesick); finish mulching flowerbed, invest another 10 minutes in prepping living trust, Freddie’s for complete series TDAP <$48, get Shingrix vaccine, find and configure a screen time popup, figure out where to plant the last of the naked lady bulbs, and soon as it warms up above 50 and dries out below 60% humidity I’ll tape and spray paint those rusted areas of Aunt Elsie’s stove. Reconcile Joe’s EOB’s Thrivent shows only 2263.48 so far, next BGBS ask Terry about GB’s FD firetruck tax levy – contacts, media, advocate???, Reward: inventory seeds, plan this spring’s garden, wishlist replenishments (Milena F1 orange peppers).
    Meaningful May:
    29: Do something special and revisit it in your memory tonight: call D and schedule stroll/coffee/chat
    30: Today do something to care for the natural world: reduce the fuel load this afternoon.
    31: Find three reasons to be hopeful about the future:

    Rori, words fail. (((hugs held extra long )))
    Likewise (((hugs held extra long ))) to Beth.
    Lisa likewise (very gentle hugs) and prayers for healing. No one who rides a mower, wields a chainsaw and digs up plants for sale at the farmers’ market is a little old lady. Just sayin’.
    Pip you are an inspiration both with your workouts and your decorating.
    Tracey con VERY gratulations on the pounds taken off and the first walk since 2019. Well done with your DD and DGD on that family heirloom. Was surprised to see it expands and has leaves. Your great great grandfather was quite a craftsman.
    Welcome @christinecameron47 ! It will never get any easier that it is right now ;)


    Lighter, lovelies!

    Evening all, new here, just wanting to introduce myself. I'm 54 and living near Devonport, Tasmania, Australia. I do Pilates, Ballet, Tap dancing and heaps of hiking but my main passion is telemark skiing.

    Menopause and some nasty medication have seen me stack the weight on so I am on a journey to try and curb the gain and look after myself into my later years. (Gawd that makes me sound ancient lol). I have two feline fur babies who I love to bits despite them driving me nuts.

    Cheers and Hi, Al from Tas.
  • exermomexermom Member Posts: 5,378 Member Member Posts: 5,378 Member
    Did Yoga for Weight Loss DVD then went for a walk. Work tomorrow so no formal exercise

    Ginny OH – have fun with your niece

    Barbie – I don’t like to work for more than an hour or so. I remember a few years ago when I cut down all these weeds. It was during the middle of the summer. I’d work for only 2 hours at a time and then go in the pool. Vince thought I should do it all at one time, but by doing it my way, it got done.

    Started to get packed to go to Denise’s Wednesday.

    Barbara – “restroom”...lol How true, tho. Oh, true me, it WAS hard to throw those crusts away. What I probably should do is freeze those crusts and have a little at a time instead of a brownie.

    Rori – (((REAL REAL BIG HUG))) I was very surprised to read that your husband was combative with Parkinson dementia. I was on a bowling league with a man who had Parkinson dementia and he was the sweetest person you’d ever want to know. I thought all people with Parkinson dementia were that way. Just a GLASS of red wine??? If I was going thru all you’re going thru, I’d probably wind up with the entire bottle or at least half of it. My heartfelt love is going out to you right now. Know that I’m in your pocket every day.

    Heather – THAT’S a pool???? Looks more like a factory to me. If there was barbed wire on top of the fence, I’d swear it was a prison

    Christine – welcome! Oh, the weight goes on so very fast at our age and comes off so very, very slowly. Frustrating...but at least it DOES come off…..in time

    When I went for my walk this morning, it was pretty cool out. Usually I can do the loop around my neighborhood and our cul-de-sac and the entrance to the development in 35 minutes. I thought I’d get that time down since it was cooler, but I didn’t. That’s about 1-1/2 mile (a tiny bit less)

    Allie – have fun at the shower

    Barbara - Thank you! I have made a hard right and removed myself from my pity party. Apparently, I need to wallow on occasion, but it's time I stopped. You remind me why - self-pity just isn't where I live. At least in the mornings, anyway. I've got to find something better to do with my evenings, obviously, and quit concentrating on my woes. My giant game of whack-a-mole with these symptoms will eventually be won, I just need patience.

    Al from Tas - Welcome! Love it when our Aussies join - you are always a breath of fresh air.

    Tracey - I second the designation of your grandfather as a true craftsman. That was not an easy task, making that table. It was crafted with style. Just the thought of placing the original cuts to make it drop from an oval to a circle and then expand once more make my head spin. Glad you're back to walking, just give yourself time, take it slowly.

    As soon as Corey's up and around, I'll get some bread dough going. I hate having the mixer thumping while he's asleep. Want to make some for us for the week and some to freeze and bake Friday for the Saturday market. How many will just have to depend on how long I want to be covered with flour!

    My May goals were to be lighter, be healthier and stick to a budget. I'm three and a half pounds lighter, no healthier and budgeting was thrown to the winds this month, so one of three. The goals will be the same for June, and hopefully, I'll get higher than 33 percent!

    For those who are new, Barbie will post a link to a June thread at some time late in the day Pacific Time. Please look for that link, follow us to the new thread and be sure to bookmark it!

    Regards,
    Lisa in AR

    ETA: For my U.S. brethren and sistren, please have a safe and happy Memorial Day. While I am a veteran, this day isn't to celebrate me or my living compatriots who served (that's Veterans' Day, in November). It is to remember and memorialize those who didn't return. However, you are more than allowed to be happy and to wish others a happy Memorial Day! After all, they served for you and yours. Enjoy your day.

    It likely depends on what part of the brain is affected.

    Pictures of the table. Michaela worked right along side of her Mother and I for about 3 of our 6 hours. We had talked about the history and how old the table was. We found that it was built July 15 1850 by, I think, my Great Great Grandfather. We were all done and Lauryn says, “That’s how I remember it”. Michaela puts her hands in the air and says “you can’t, it’s new”.

    I then told her a story of how when her Mommy was a tiny baby about a week or two old I was changing her diaper on the table and she pooped on me all the way up my arm. She thought that was hilarious.

    Anyway here are the pics:

    Hi there, getting a wee bit chilly here in the deep south of Aus isn't it? I spent Sunday sliding around on snow and ice up on Cradle Mountain, stunning day but driving up was treacherous with ice all over the road. First official day of winter tomorrow, bring it on, I want to skiiiiiiii.

    Happy Monday! Day off work for Memorial Day. I should say, shop is closed. I have work to do. Apparently I need to sleep more. I took a 3 hour nap yesterday afternoon and still slept 8 1/2 hours last night. Me....I need to be selfish for taking care of me I think. I think it was Barbara who said it gets done, just slower. That statement is so true!

    Rori, Beth, and Lisa I am adding my hugs, prayers, and warm thoughts. Rori- I am glad that you are getting to spend time with DH. That will mean lots to you down the road and I am sure it brings him peace too. I wish we had had that option when Steve's Mom passed. She would have been 77 today.

    Welcome to the new ladies! You won't find a more supportive group of ladies, so check in often.

    I should get started on something today. Have a great one!

    Hi there, getting a wee bit chilly here in the deep south of Aus isn't it? I spent Sunday sliding around on snow and ice up on Cradle Mountain, stunning day but driving up was treacherous with ice all over the road. First official day of winter tomorrow, bring it on, I want to skiiiiiiii.

    Do you downhill or cross-country ski?

    I started out Cross country many years ago then got into ski patrol and started to telemark. I now do about 90% resort telemark so downhill but with free heels, 5% cross country on the skinny skis and 5% Alpine just because I have the gear and should use it. I rarely ski in Tas these days as the snow is so unreliable. I have three weeks booked at Falls Creek in Vic from the last week of July, I have fingers and toes crossed that I can actually go.

    Do you ski?
