  • Annie will she follow the advice of her doctor. It comes a point where someone will have to have power of attorney and that person makes the decisions. Sounds like she is not there yet. She is at the stage where very frustrating for you. We found if you get them talking about the past and just enjoy that time with them.…
  • Rita there is new technology for root canals involving lazers that is more effective at removing decay and saving the tooth. Not all dentist do this and it is not done in the canine world. So a dog with a bad tooth it is best just to pull it. This was discussed at the dog detox summit.
  • Karen at the dog detox summit one of the speakers talked about the effect of Wifi on you and your pet. If a computer uses ethernet it is not a problem because their is no electronic magnetic radiation envolved. So she recommended you turn off Wi-Fi at night when you are sleeping and not to be using a lap top of phone by…
  • Pip You are still healing from your surgery and have Yogi's health to think of too. You and Yogi are more important than a trip. Kirby will come to his senses. In the meantime make your healing number 1. You have to give yourself oxygen first. Focus on you. In the detox dog summit the talked about in those times of stress…
  • Still take Drew on walks just being careful not to let people get too close. In do summit talked about lowering exposure to Wifi. I will now make sure I turn off devices not in use and turn off Wifi when not using computer. There is no way to switch it to airplane mode on my Chrome. I will also start limiting my time on…
  • Carla A good friend and neighbor just came down with COVID. She came outside to tell me so I kept a distance, but I let DrewB run up to her be knowing she was sick. She bent down and petted her. I did have to tell her that she could give COVID DrewB COVID. I will still be her friend. I will just be more cautious because…
  • Enjoying the dog summit. Yesterday they had a great presentation on essential oils. I learned it important to find a good source of essential oils because the quality can vary greatly. I also got a good recipe for insect repellent to use on Drew. I no longer use an oral medication since she had anemia this winter. The oral…
  • My peony tulips are in bloom. This is there first year. I absolutely love them. Perfect for the location I have them.
  • Enjoying a Pet Summit on detoxing your pet. Today was on gut biome, vacinations, and dental health. Gave me much food for thought. One speaker in particular I liked because he talked about our food supply chain and our need to stop the war on weed with chemicals. Also helped at Nature Center today and got to go up in a…
  • Ginny I use a cream with Arnica when I get leg cramps in the night. It works well for me. It is an herb related to the sunflower. So if have allergies to sunflower not a good choice.
  • Carla finally a spring day today!
  • Thank you Barbie <3 Lisa that Floral arrangement was my favorite too. Loved that her DH made the frame.
  • So fortunate to get to meet so many florists😍. The jade mountain depicts a group of poets getting together on a mountain retreat. the Florist/artist captured the party atmosphere with real jade cups. Starting full and spilling out by the time they reached the bottom of the mountain. In the jade they are floating in a…
  • Another piece we got to hear the florist... Another favorite from Art in Bloom😍Florist/artist had help from her son who is in his early thirties build the wood portion of the display. Love how it mimics the bottom portion of the seat. This is a hallway by Frank LLoyd Wright. The yellow flowes capture the seats.
  • Art in Bloom was open to public this year. I went with a friend on Thursday... This was one of my favorites. Florist/artist outfit she bought as a dress and turned it into a coat just for this event. Her husband made the frame. She had to figure out how to keep top plants from drying out. No soil allowed. She placed them…
  • Debbie I have one of those carts. I will try this.
  • Carla AGREE!!! Staying into today. Rain all day. Rita Your son is ill. Tough love is not the answer. Having been there it is hard to finding a balance of being involved with someone who is mentally ill. I know you live far from him so in some ways it makes it harder and in other ways easier. Just try to remember he is ill…
  • Allie they are doing it as an app. You will need a target app and then scan to your phone.
  • When DB comes with another story just tell him to go read the Boy who Cried Wolf walk away and do something for yourself that makes you feel strong. Bridges are burned. I also try remember what my aunt said to me fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Your mom will not see him for what he is. All you can do…
  • Annie when my knee acted up I got some physical therapy. The exercises he gave me help. He gave me a heads up about shoes too. Make sure they have good arch support. No more flats or heels unless just walking into a restaurant or church where I mostly sit. I agree be careful with knee support it may weaken the surrounding…
  • DebbieT and Allie Target is taking old car seats until April 30th and will give you a coupon towards a new one or a stroller. There was another baby item I am not sure what it was. You can look it up.
  • These are some of the flowers we got to see at Como Conservatory. It was lovely. Helps on this snowy windy day. Brings some spring into the indoors.
  • Carla It is the wind, all the grey and colder temps. My week to St. Louis helped even with their cooler than normal temps, too. at least their was more sun. No damage here. We are in for more wind tonight. Yes I liked the food at Morelos. It is on the west side of St. Paul in a strip mall. They are one of the restaurants…
  • Annie I went to a Mexican restaurant yesterday called Morelos named after a state in Mexico just south of Mexico City. They had a map of Mexico up and it was fun to learn more about the geography of the Nation. Our waiter was a delight too. We went after seeing the flowers at Como Park conservatory. I had not been there in…
