  • Barbie - I am hooked on " The Man Who Died Twice". I can see Helen Mirren playing Elizabeth. Our library has them on kindle, but I see 45 people ahead of me for "The Thursday Murder Club". :) You are so wise to be cautious with this transmissible bug and careful protecting Jake's health, and as you know, that was me for…
  • Barbie - YES!!! Great post. All we need to do is start somewhere. It doesn't have to be perfect, it doesn't have to be all out. It doesn't have to be 20 or 40 minutes of exercise or 10,000 steps if we aren't in good shape or have issues that limit us. I actually did a super super early walk to the main road and back, 1/2…
  • Good afternoon ladies! Someone I follow posted this on Facebook this morning. I'm not sure if her intent is to be cathartic or just to announce freedom from her own and other's expectations. Or??? Lots of food for thought here. Feel free to skip. ;) Anyhow, I've read it three times now and each time I get a different…
  • Debbie - I remember the tough time you and your family had with Covid. Two years ago, I think it was maybe the original strain - tho Delta was in the US in late 2020 and you folks might have been some of the early ones. Either way, you caught the bear, didn't you! I've been trying to find a good timeline on these variants.…
  • Jam - So very, very sorry to hear what you've gone through since your retirement. :'( Do you have any other children? Several of us have lost our husbands in the past couple years. I am so grateful you have your "Sisters on the Fly" group. And very happy you are back with us. Do you have a nickname and where are you from -…
  • Happy Sunday Ladies! <3 Karen - hope your brother's SS# debacle is getting sorted out. Thanks for the pix of Olivia & Mom & update on Josephine. Kids seem to take these things in stride better than adults. One of my favorite books, no longer in print as far as I know, is titled "What was good about today" about a family…
  • Happy Friday ladies! Well this is Day 4 of Covid and it has quickly morphed into a allergy/head cold for me, which is what it's been doing for some other folks. I did wake up pretty early this morning with an earache. Messaged the doc, she said try Flonase but I didn't have any in the house and didn't feel like driving to…
  • Hi ladies, just a quick pop-in. I see I need to catch up. Barbie - my sympathy regarding Bernie. What a neat photo of Sasha and Bernie together, I had to grab a tissue. Your pets live long and happy lives. <3 I'm on day #3 of Covid. First day was bad flu-like symptoms. Chills, body aches, jumpy tummy, no appetite, zero…
  • Good morning ladies! It's Sunday. Barbara - yes that Shake the Sugar challenge will be interesting. I think it's geared more for the younger set (folks from 20 to 60 or so) but still, hope to pick up some tips. Yesterday morning, I was really hungry so thought I'd try the 30 gm of protein and still only made 27 gm .... 2…
  • Happy Friday ladies! WOW, so impressive all the decluttering and purging going on in this group. Feels good, doesn't it? <3 I'm getting a head start on the Shake the Sugar Challenge. I've copied and pasted parts of the email I got from Dr. Matt after signing up. One of the challenges is to eat 30 gm of protein at breakfast…
  • Sherryann - I left WW 4 or 5 years ago when they changed their website, I didn't have good access to their community anymore and logging was a pain. I liked being able to log food - the MFP food diary here is similar, and it's free. ;) Some of us log, some of us don't. I log sporadically to double check how much fiber and…
  • Ladies, there's a 49 day "Shake the Sugar" Challenge starting in 4 days, a local Naturopath is hosting this. If anyone is interested, here's the link (hope MFP allows it.) https://go.drwholeness.com/shakethesugar?fbclid=IwAR3iOuqW9laYOBHSXGJHxOjaQtsKJfMpC-RstsMycz0yGllwpUdokZZexHU I signed up for it. :) Lanette <3
  • Good morning! Carol - good job, looks great. Baby steps. Hope your hubby leaves his hands off, lol. This morning I cleaned out the "dishtowel" drawer in the kitchen - what a collection, lots of items other than dishtowels. 1/3 went into a bag for the "free" box. People can use them in their kitchen or for rags or whatever.…
  • Carla - I take it you are still employed? :) Please give us the scoop. Lanette B)
  • Good morning ladies! Hope everyone's decluttering is going well :D Lanette B) SW WA State
  • Karen & Lisa - Thank you :D Yes. This is me. 5 to 6 hours a night, hopefully peaceful, then 1/2 hr nap later in the morning or between 12 and 1 unless I have a ton of energy. I'd been beating myself up for not getting the recommended 7 to 8 hours at a time every night. Lanette B) SW WA State
  • Katla - ((HUGS)) So glad you are with your daughter at this time. Praying for a good outcome. <3 Lanette B)
  • Good evening ladies, As of last week, I'm finally getting ripe tomatoes. They were all grown in containers, 5 gallon bucket or smaller. ID:: Red one is Little Sicily, nice medium size especially bred for containers. Orange is Sungold, a sweet cherry hybrid. Pale/pink with stripes is Black Vernissage. Sweet. Squeeze the…
  • Karen - was your brother trained as an artist? Beautiful work! Lanette
  • Rita - our local historical museum is sponsoring a "Flying Saucer Party" on Sept. 17th. This year is the 75th anniversary of Kenneth Arnold's historic sighting of 9 strange objects flying near Mt. Rainier that coined the term FLYING SAUCER! 🛸 That sighting would have been in 1947. Roswell's little green men had a crash…
  • Machka - you could write a great story about your experiences :) I would love to read it - go for it. <3 Lanette B)
  • Good morning ladies <3 Beth - I admire your steadfastness in getting your mom moved to NY. There will probably come a time when you'll look back and wonder how you accomplished it all. :) Heather - Home repair/upkeep. I know the feeling. :# If I plan to stay here for another 5-10 years, and I could if my health holds up,…
  • Sue - wow. I hope you'll be safe. I just saw parts of Index are being evacuated. Is there someplace designated as a holding area for horses and farm animals? I see we have a lot of farmers around here ready to head east with their own trailers and bring threatened livestock to their own safe pastures far from the fire,…
  • Barbara - I did pause for a moment before thanking her and refusing the gift. This isn't the first time she's given me and/or DH gifts that were expensive and/or not something we'd use. Generally they come with a "I saved the receipt if you want something else". I have given her the "a card and a gift card is perfect"…
  • Good morning ladies! Carol- how frustrating for you. I'm trying to think of how I'd try to do it on the sly, lol. Maybe a small box at a time, thinning here and there. See if he notices. An idea. He might be Hawkeye and notice every little thing, my DH could be like that sometimes. On getting & giving gifts at our age...…
  • Karen - glad your brother got his SS card. ;) Vicki - also, good luck with the stress test! Glad to hear you have scheduled a week off. :D Debbie - giving the telemarketer's phone calls to the triplets made me laugh out loud. :D Barbie - hope the new eye doc has a solution for you. :D Just finished setting up a yellow…
  • Kelly - LOL! This makes me want to turn off the answering machine and give them a scripture lesson for the day! Lanette B) SW WA State
