I was reading through my writing and it was really awful. I edited s many as I can do.
I was very upset, I am thinking it is my fault.
Our son was typing and every time I have my wrist on the lap top it beeps and it very annoying.
DH suggested buying another computer but I keep thinking it is my head is the culprit. Tomorrow I will change to another DR, mine is a bully.

GREAT that you have found something all one floor and nearer to your daughter and her hubby.
Have you been inside and do you like it.
Waiting for news, Pat in Maine.
PS is it nearer my home. emoticon emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon m

You have been so busy. I am glad you are getting so much done.

Yesterday we visited friends that are 89 and 92. We sat and talked all afternoon. They just need someone to come by to visit and talk to.

I plan to get more cleaned out of the house this week. There is another house up for sale that is all on one floor. It is closer to my daughter and husband.

Today is cold and rain. Not a hard rain but a continuous soft rain. This will be going for several days. I don't like dark days.

WELL DONE another outing Lucky You.
Today I painted the doors of the house an the basement door too.
I had a huge can of the Barn Red DH loves that color.
I painted the big steps from the kitchen to the area where the pool is. The dogs were in the same area I was talking to them. Eventually DH got up and I went with my friend for a walk. Over 6,000 we love to do that.
I called Fred and we went to McDonalds for a Southwest salad . I do not care for the chicken so I have a piece of beef patty and I do prefer it to chicken.
All three of us chatted and then home to PAINT.
I am hoping our son will help me to get my machines up to our bedroom. I have new Jeans an d I will have to shorten them before winter comes.
ENJOY your Excursion. I am happy I got the house looks nice. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Yes I walk at the Walmart and grocery stores. I walk the treadmills at the gym. I always liked to walk outside in the fresh air. No Y here but lots of fitness places. Our street is too curved and busy.

Today we are driving to Clarksburg WV to visit friends. The had a sun room added to their house. They live in a rural area. She kept getting tick bites from just sitting on the porch. Now the can enjoy the outside feeling with out the bugs.

It says rain today but the sun is out and it is cool.

I had to change our little team. There are only three of us left.
The other 2 did not know how to get to the topic so I tried. I have so many mistakes.
It came through DUPLICATES. New People are on both of them.
There are all mixed up and I am feeling very bad because this is the SPARK TEAM.
I bought the book and I thought it would be easy but I did not have a computer.
Getting the computer was a really bad step.

Great! your leg will get stronger and if you have no places to walk do you have any big shops or a Mall.
We walk in Home Depot and other stores. Do you have a "Y" or a big place to walk inside.
That was how we did our walks together.
My computer is moving letters so I have to keep my wrists high off the lap top. (((HUGS))) Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Glad you have the painting done. You are way ahead of me . I also like to paint. ( not little things as my hand shake a bit ) Walls and big things go okay.

Today I had morning coffee with friends. These two worked in a school near the one where I was principal. We have met the first Friday of the month for many years. It was good to catch up.

I have been walking more. My legs are stronger and that is great. You walk more than I do. There is no place near us to walk outside. When we look at possible houses we also look to see what is near by. I hope to be near a good place to walk.

WELL DONE with the POINTS.
You went to lunch and I went to walk. Then I painted the back Deck it is not very big 16x 10 feet but it had railings and rail and steps so it was a long time. 4 hours. I tried to get the walk in and now the painting deck is not in and so I am in a bind, I did do 8648 and no place to put it. I do get frustrated when I am certainly doing the work. I like to paint with brush-My way.
IT IS GETTING MORE COMPLICATED.

No I have to make dinner and the evening is very chilly here.
I am glad you have your friends I have my Buddies to walk with and I do some things at Senior college. I usually stay back to pick up. They all go to Lunch and I do not want to eat out all the time. I am going to do a lass with Brain teasers and other things and I take care of the concerts and we go to watch others who are world wide trackers and it does look nice but not going too far I love to stay home most times..

Looking for another Dr I am hoping Dr HOBBS will help me. Pat in Maine.

I couldn't believe the big numbers. Of course there is always one 3.

Sorry to hear you are having a bad time. I hope you find someone to help. Doctors are not all friendly. Sometimes i think they just have a medicine they like and everyone gets told to take that. emoticon

Today I am having lunch with a friend. Out to lunch two days in a row, Woo! Hoo! But got to watch what i eat. I finally am down to the weight that it says on my driver's license.
emoticon It has been a long time since that was accurate.

Hope you are better today.

Hi it was not a good day but my Acupuncturist helped me out. I took the medications to see if I should take the medications . He is a preceptor for years and he said those meds will not be good together.
My Dr was very nasty earlier in the week so I am going to find another woman who my acupuncturist will help me. I hope so she was not taking patients.
It was a rough day and I am really tired after all this.

I am happy you and your daughter had a good day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Pat in Maine.

5 and 7 and 53. That was a surprise!


Wonderful day for you. Sometimes it is good to have a day with the " girls" . My husband needs time by himself sometimes and like your husband he putters around or sits and reads a book.

Today I take my daughter to lunch. Her birthday was yesterday but the computer people were there training all employees on the new program. She sent me a flower arrangement yesterday. It said.... surprise for you and Happy Birthday to me! On the card.

Dave has the car to take to the shop and a meeting at noon. This is not a day to hurry.

I know when you have to move the blocks it is a different way to go.
Those blocks hurt my hands despite my gardening gloves. Not those pretty ones I have but with the blocks, I have leather work gloves so I really do protect my fingers and hands.
After yesterday I needed a break so we went to the Botanical Gardens.
I drove and the others were chatting, we were at a time people were at work so we got there early.
We asked how long to have a meal and she said they were setting up. We decided to have a short walk because our friend Penny goes to P.T. and she is doing well. We strolled the pathways and ways and after about an hour I was hungry and they agreed so I went to the cafeteria and I said my friends are coming so we will have three at a table. I sat down and looked at the menu, there were so many choices and I saw they use Dave's Bread. 21 seeds and DH and I love it. I knew my choice and the others wanted the same. It was a Roast beef Panini and it was so good with this Bread. We chatted and went for another walk and it was time to get ready before the rush.
It was a really good day and really good company and DH wanted to stay to rest his foot after the Podiatrist was finished, DH said it was a good visit and the Dr decided to find a shoe stretcher on AMAZON. Now we are looking it up and tomorrow I will buy one.
It was a good day and DH looked after the dogs and watched some TV and he played Solitaire.

Sound like a good plan. You get some good one on one with your GD. That is great!


I was up early and worked outside. I cleaned some mold off our white shutters. I have several butternut squash ready. I think I will only get one zucchini. That plant didn't grow well.

Safe travels.

DH was not in a good mood and now our Grand daughter wants to be home.
I hope to drive to Lancaster New Hampshire with just TEGAN.I need to be able to keep my car driving excellence. DH is not in a good mood, neither am I so it is easier to go our separate ways today. That way I can chat with our GD .with-out trying to chat over my shoulder if he drives and he does not want to. ((((HUGS)))) Pat in Maine.. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon 100 GOODIES POINTS.

It was a very good day I walked the Rail trail with our senior walker and she hurt her hip so we walked a little slower. She did really well and we both turned back on the trail.
My friend is much older than I we talked all the time we were together.

Our day was very sunny but some times the wind drops 5 degrees and after a short time it just went back up.
TEXAS is flooding and our Gasoline has just adjusted and it has 5 cents more. .DH and I love big cars but we gas the car up on Monday or Tuesday because by the weekend it is still some gas.
I am hoping to lose a few more pounds to get to 180 then 176 has been my goal.
I am still walking and doing the garden work. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Visiting a friend today. Playng my music for the next time we go out. We set up a program for two months. So September and October we play those same songs.

My Fitbit is not syncing to anything. Not my phone or the Sparkpeople program. I am hoping she can help me..

This is to be a good day. I picked a nice zucchini and a good Butternut squash this morning. My tomato plants are not doing well.

Enjoy your granddaughters and family the weekends are short.

Tomorrow one of my friends will be 93 so I am baking brownies with chocolate icing. That is her favorite.

We went to Bar Harbor and at the last minute the other friend told us one road is blocked off. Instead we went to Boothbay Harbor and we had a good day. We went to our favorite place in Wiscasset and the meal was not as good as usual.
The service was good and our conversation was excellent. Our Grand daughter was in her element. I am so happy we went to see them. They will be going home on Saturday.
We rarely leave Maine but we go to Spark Friends and we always come back happy.

emoticon This was the fifth time we went to Bar Harbor and they love the place as much as we do. Tomorrow we might go to the Island and watch the seals together. We have to see the tide and our GD just wants to see the seals. We would try to get photos if we can and she will draw and paint them I am sure. emoticon m emoticon

.It was a disappointment to have a Workshop in Greensboro. I am sure you might be trio or
Quartets, I know the musicians emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon will love the music. Pat in Maine.

I read your blog. I am going to try the salt in a few places. My yard looks good for a few days.

Today I had my eye dr. Apt. This was to check the macular degeneration problem. He said that I had no change from last year. I am so grateful.

Tomorrow we drive to Greensburg for a music workshop at the store. There are only a few of us going as others have something else scheduled.

This week has gone fast. Take care

Today I was in the yard all day. I took all the weeds in the front driveway. I had not used their driveway. Yesterday the weeds were a foot high. He tried to pull them so today I took my sharp spade and cut them all off. I also did the same with the rock wall and under their entrance. That is one they have low front in to the basement and we are at the back door. I keep mine weeds away just nip them in the bud. I found the best way was to keep some salt over the roots and they die. WooHoo.
We are not having a September concert so we will be in May.
We are preparing for 18/19 and 19/20 We are always ahead to find people who we can afford. I am alone on the refreshments. My helper and she wanted to take over but she has gone by to her nursing buddies. She is lucky, they are almost all French friends. GREAT !

I did the pin hole with our two sons when we were in the other house. They were 5 and three. They both enjoyed it.
This time I cut off some of my X-rays and I had 4 of them so I cut off 8 of them. I gave some away and we saw the eclipse in Maine. Even DH got to see it. The moon was just shadowed the bottom of the sun. It was a good time though.
Our oldest girl is fretting because they will have severe and her cat-a huge Tom Cat goes crazy with the thunder and lightning.
Her mother has to go to work alas. We hope we have but we have had gorgeous weather 84 degrees today and still 80 tomorrow if the forecast was right.

Oh! Great! The girls are getting acquainted and spending time together. I am so glad. This is such a good thing at their ages. You are awesome at getting them to meet and have this opportunity.

We watched the eclipse with a pin hole in a cereal box. You put white paper in the bottom of the box. Cut two holes in the top. One on each end of the top. Cover one hole eith foil wrap and poke a straight pin hole in the middle. You look in the open other end and you see the sun as it is eclipsed.

Today back to daily tasks. Helen is back because WVU has started back. She will be here Monday nights and some Tuesday nights. She has a better schedule this year.

I am so thankful for my friends. The only family here is my daughter Carol and her husband.

Enjoy the girls. WV Sue

I spent a lot of time I had made some eye savers with some old X-ray film. I used it last time, I love astronomy and everything Celestials.
Father was at work, mother was on nights so she went to bed and eventually the girls came together. WooHoo.
Right now I put on all clean linen in the camper and both beds were made up and both of them are in the camper and I am hoping Emily the youngest one will stay over night.

We shall see. I am hoping they might swim together but Emily is not a swimmer except when her Dad is around.

HOW nice to have friends like yours, excellent friends you have. You are so outgoing and I realize now DH is a great dancer, I never danced. When we came to US the people around us had basement parties and I just had to watch. It was I that wanted not to go and the other Brits thought I was a snob.
DH had been friendly when we came. We bought a house right next door and the other people thought it was idea. Fred's friend was the CEO very soon and they wanted to go to New York state. I had my first son and I wanted to stay here so I was the one who had to take our two sons every where. The others got in to the Country club. I never drank or danced and when invitations came I had a good excuse both boys were croup kids. They had been in the hospital two winters one in and the other out. Pat in Maine.
You are so lucky to have such Great friends. Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sorry to hear your granddaughters are not getting acquainted while they are together at your home. It sounds like they have similar talents. Bless you for always taking time to try to keep your family close. Life is too short to pass up opportunities to be with family.

My friend is coming to watch the eclipse of the sun. We will be careful. It isn't total here. She will be here for lunch.

Last night our dinner with friends was really great! We all had time to visit and relax. They surprised us by buying our dinner and a gift of a special 25 th Anniversary gift.

Good idea, think it through.
We had to drive to bring our Grand daughter for just a week. We have barely in the house but our older GD sleeps outdoors. Someone disapproves so we have her own home and sleeps when she wants. They are cousins but the DIL does not like her and the other cousin knows she is like this. Two girl cousins hardly met 4 years ago when they came to the house .I will have a good time with Oldest GD and the younger one 3 years younger cannot go with us. They are 14 and 17 both loves to draw. I brought her to Maine and she shall see Maine.
I am so weary after 6 hours From Maine to new Hampshire. Very country Fall colors are here. We had a beautiful day.
Do you have just one daughter? Does she Spark? Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

We are just driving around looking at this point. We won't be ready to sell until next spring. Unless we really get busy and finish some projects here on this one to be ready to sell.

We have a lady that is a realtor at our church. She has good advise. I would like to have less flower beds and outside work. Just enough to keep the place looking good. Not an acres of land. Dave has trouble with the trees and the acre we have now.

Carol, my daughter took me with her and her friend to a new shop that is opening. It has all kinds of scents. Candles, oil, tins, and herbs. We had a good time and we will go back. I got a few things. i am always trying to keep my house from smelling like the cats or dogs when we had them. I like the smells of orange, clove, cinnamon etc. like when you are cooking or baking.

It looks nice this morning. We have had rain storms now for 3 days.

We usher at church today so we are out early.

It will be easy to get out to look but are you just driving or have you have a good realtor to help you.
Are you looking for a small house you can keep it simple, just a little house where you can have your flower beds. Will you be nearer to your daughter or farther away.
I have been trying to get to painting the small deck at the back. I wanted a bigger one but we rarely eat on the deck. Our son has fixed our back steps and I think we can use a wheelchair and that is good. One of us will need one some day. Our kitchen has a big glass door and another half that is static. I wonder if we would be able to make a ramp outside that would be wide enough to get to the garage.
You just made me thinking, it will be fun seeing inside other homes. Pat in Maine. emoticon I often wonder about that leaves of the little house. ???? emoticon

It is good that your son would like your house. If you have enough land to build a smaller one for the two of you that is grand!! We don't have that possibility.
We were driving to the next town down I 79 from us. I haven't found anything in our town area. Every house is as big as this one one even larger.

Today my daughter invited me to go with her to a shop her friend is opening. It has decorations for fall and kitchen things. It also carries herbs for cooking and making scented things. I will tell you more Tomorrow.

Rain storms here yesterday, last night and more expected. I am glad I got the flower beds cleaned up.

Hi I had a lot to say but it disappeared again.
I read and thought about getting to find a smaller dwelling. Try before winter would be nice. I would love to have a small dwelling in our back yard so we do not want a ramp. I really like this place and one of the sons would like it.
Our oldest son will love this house and I know how much he could use it.
I am tired and the computer keeps mess it up.

I think I will call this getting ready for fall. Where did summer go??

My brother called about noon and said they were not coming. So my lawn, my house, and the food is ready for a couple days. I always have said that I wanted to get ready to go away and then stay home to enjoy the house. So.... right now I am catching up on sparking. Turkey dinner is ready for tonight and food is in for a few days.

I think we will have to drive over to there house and visit for part of a day.and drive back.
I haven't seen them in a year. He is 84 and the doctor said the cancer has spread into the bone.

I walked alone and I did a lot of yard work. Today my tracker says 12525

I walked the 4 miles alone. Then I went to trimming the trees that are round in the back yard.
Then I took out too many spent flowers and herbs.
Tomorrow we are supposed to walk but I know 2 of the Buddies have issue with back pain and they are older than I.
How nice to have company.
I think I will cut down the gnome garden and I have a couple of bags of mulch.
It feels wet in the bags so I will put it in to the wheelbarrow and try to get it dry. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon mm

Sound like you are set up mow that you are back. I am glad that you have a few peaceful days at home to get settled back into your routines.

Rain again here today. Last night I thought of you and all the yard work you do. I finished weeding my flower beds and put down mulch. That really took my evening.

Today is clean house and then play music at a nursing home. Tomorrow my brother and his wife will come about 2 pm from Columbia Maryland. That is about 3 hours away. He is 84 and doesn't drive far any more so this is a big trip.

Hi there, I am Sparking and most posts are not the same. I wish they would explain these things,
I am absolutely not how I am finding this is too difficult for me.
I had three grocery shops to go to. DH stays in the car and I go to Sam's and it is Big.
Then to Walmart and Hannaford just for some of their Lean Beef, I wanted to have for dinner.

I am trying to weed the patio pool. Our son is working over and his wife is doing nights so our GD has gone to Karate Camp.

So we had to get groceries and I cannot get how Spark goes these days.
I am hoping to get some knowledge from there, other wise I might give in.
I am down to 183 and I rarely hungry so I will do some more and I like the people I have found friends here. ((((HUGS))) Pat in Maine. emoticon

Wonderful We had a good visit when we went last week. The Tine goes too fast.

It was so good that you went for a visit. It sounds like you got a lot done and you were able to look around some. Good for you to get pictures. that is what makes it fun now you can show them to the rest of the family

Safe travel home.
