Thank you so much for the list, Thelma, no ticks here but we have lots of other " lovely" stuff to worry about. Husband's niece sent some pasta salad once did not like it as she saves on condiments when she sends someone!!!!!!!!

Tee. I just read about the other tick desease the other day...checked out Google and the list is a long one:
Anaplasmosis. ...
Babesiosis. ...
Ehrlichiosis. ...
Powassan Virus Disease. ...
Borrelia miyamotoi Disease. ...
Borrelia mayonii Disease. ...
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF)

didn't check out what or how they affected you...DH just picked one off of him this morning...ugh!
Nas, so sad to hear your friend has not improved. Can't say I have ever ate curry
FINALLY getting hair cut tomorrow....hanging in my eyes while I try to get work done is not fun. Got laundry out on line to dry, made macaroni salad for our supper tonite, ran vaccum thru all floors and DH helped to scrub wood floors with my new jet mop I bought a few weeks ago....scrubbing floors just got easier...especially when DH does it... emoticon . Was time to get supper, DH grilled and I did the corn on the cob.....food was very good and best of all some left over for another meal.

My friend is still hanging on, spoke to her sister yesterday, praying she gets well. Just woke up half an hour back on June 1. Stay well, Karen. Easy to make curry, Tee, So many months of all the restrictions has got to me. About the curry. Fry chopped onions in oil add garlic/ginger paste turmeric & other spices like coriander, cumin etc with a bit of water & when raw smell goes add whatever you want to make a curry. This is just a basic thing. No measurements as am a pinch of this & pinch of that person.

Jane.....Sorry bladder kept you up. Do you take blood pressure medication in the afternoon or night? My doctor said not to take bp medication late in the day or you go potty all night. I hope shorter nap leads to more nighttime sleep.

Thelma...Thanks for water link. WW taught me to drink plenty of water and I still suffered from dehydration which is hormonal. BTW, there is another illness caused by ticks that is not Rocky fever or cause a rash.

Nasfkab....I love curry but don't know how to make. The mother of a girl in my car pool made curry and shared with me. How is your friend?

Karen...I hope you enjoyed concert. Nothing going on here too.

A little less fog today. Sun appeared by noon. Tylenol did away with my knee pain last night. The pain returned when I woke and taking thyroid med took it away. Crazy body.

I watched Memorial service on USS Iowa ship that is docked near work. Neighbors set off fire works last night.

15 months of covid restrictions is depressing. 38 million have been vaccinated here. We have the lowest cases/deaths. Reopen on June 15th with no distancing but need to wear masks. Travelers to US are required to have negative covid test within 1-3 days of flying and test again and quarantine upon returning home.

Joyce, love your picture. Glad the coast is having good weather.

Tee, our governor keeps putting us back into lockdown forcing people to go into quarantine when they come back from the states.
I sometimes go back to sleep for awhile but usually up and around before eight. Too many year of teaching and being out of the house before seven.
Sorry you were not able to get bananas. Nice that people are giving out food but to wipe a store out does not seem right.
Hope you got your gas.
Great that you had steak and then your neighbor gave you chicken.
Sorry to hear your knees keep giving out on you. I know the feeling.

Nas, sorry to hear about your friend.
Getting stew meat and cooking is well sounds like a good idea.

I have not done much today and did take a short nap but set the alarm so it was a short one.
I woke five times last night because I could not hold anymore in my bladder. uuuugghh!

Nasfkab. 100! Wow! I am glad it is cooler now. I like stew meat too, but don't make often.

I walked neighbor tonight. Left knee gave out at corner and couldn't bend or put weight on leg. Did several exercises and was able to bend and get home. No problem gassing car. Then, knee gave out at home. Took Tylenol which I hope works.

Thank you Jane, for your good wishes, it has been in the 100s a few day back, good today. Must thank you too, Joyce for wishing smiles, a good friend is very ill, almost dying, unfortunately only a miracle could save her. Do not like steak as I like well done meat so prefer to buy stew meat, most of my friends think am strange for that but something must have happened when I was a lot younger, Tee.

Jane...Good about you attending church.. A lot of people are traveling or plan to travel his summer mainly in the states. Glad you had chance to see flag lights in spite of bladder and rain. Your napping is probably due to getting up early. Is there anyway you can sleep longer in the morning? I go potty, take medication and go back to sleep.

Nasfkab....Sorry it is hot there.

Joyce....Enjoy the beautiful weather and rest.

This coast is foggy and cold. Only one day of heat this month. I don't want heat but 70s would be nice. We had "June Gloom" weather in May. Goodness knows what June will be like.

Nothing thrilling going on here. Losing eye glass order was due to the website, not internet. The site would not allow me to bypass extras like anti fog, blue lenses, etc. No luck grocery shopping. Store was out of most produce I needed. They usually have 6-9 boxes of bananas. I asked manager why they didn't have any bananas? She said a man came in and bought all of them. I think a church was handing out food yesterday.

I slept well last night and on and off all day. I planned to go to my towns street fair with live music but didn't have the energy. I need to go to Costco before closing for gasoline since they are closed tomorrow and everyone that is out of town will fill up on Tuesday.

Ate steak for dinner last night. It was good and worth wait. Neighbor made chicken and shared yesterday and gave to me after I ate. So I will eat tonight.

Nas, it has been hot here too.

Thelma, sorry the bloodmeal was not usable due to dogs and other animals.
Rabbits close to the house. The mother must feel safe around you.
Sorry you did not see the surgeon. Really sorry about the near fall that may have done damage to your shoulder.
Hang in there, do what you can an rest.
Praise God you were not hurt during the storm.
I remember before air conditing being so hot when we had a heat spell in Oregon.

Tee, thank you. I think that if I can stop sleeping during the day I may sleep better at night but the main reason I wake up is my bladder is yelling at me.
Sorry your attempt to buy glasses on line did not work. Internet is great when it works and then…

Hello, Joyce, my Sunday is almost over.

I went to church this morning and found out several people will be going stateside for awhile this summer. Our governor is not lifting restrictions and I do not want to be stuck in a hotel upon returning home.
I went to Asan park to see the flags this evening. I got there just after sundown but still light planning to stay until after dark but my bladder had other ideas. I left and went to a near by store and used the toilet, picked up a new face mask and went back to the park. Got settled in saw the lights on the flags and then it started to rain so I came home. I had taken a folding chair to sit in so could have stayed longer but getting drenched is not what I wanted.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Jane

Jane...Good luck strengthening out sleep. Are you getting up to go potty or just waking? I had two good nights before it returned. Eating starch/carbs like pasta for dinner calm the adrenal glands and not drinking anything an hour before bed led to me sleeping at night. The eclipse was Wed. The boy has temper tantrums in the morning, afternoon and after dinner.

Nasfkab...Vision problem won't subside until I get glasses.

Thelma....The bump near incision is scar tissue. I had it after knee surgery and surgeon removed bc it hurt. Sorry about near fall in shower, thyroid, neck tumor and aches and pain. i have been there and sympathize. Crazy weather here too.

I spent the morning virtually trying on eye glasses on line. Found pair. Entered rx and lost everything. Argh! The extras that I can't bypass cost a lot. A $7 frame was $50 without a extras site wouldn't allow me to bypass.

Overcast and 50s this morning. Sun appeared now. I am heading to grocery for produce since they put out at 2 pm.

Jane, I have tried the blood meal before but then I have something...neighbors dogs or wild animals to dig at the ground where it is placed. Was weeding the other day and seen flower stems moving....yep, right in front porch we have baby rabbits in under the plant....grr. Well they are there and hope they will stay safe this time as we are not sure what happened to the last litter we found in back porch flower bed.
Was not surgeon but his assistant that said incision looked good....she did not look well enough to see there is a bump there but I let it slide...when she asked how I felt I then told her about my near fall in shower and grabbing to shower bar to keep from falling and since then shoulder that hurt before is back and some stiffness in neck.....it is not what she said but the look on her face that confirmed I may have undone what was fixed. She said I could have another Myelogram done.....I told her I would give it time and she said I could also have an injection in my shoulder for pain as I had done before they discovered it was the disc's that caused the issue. This morning while rinsing out our mask after washing them the pain in my right hand hit me hard....just as it had done before the surgery. Don't know what I am going to do now....issues with the thyroid, tumor in neck and other aches and pains just has me in a tizzy. Might explain why I am napping more than I use to...a way to escape for a while.
Took us about 2 hrs to clean mess up in yard after storm went thru. Got the rest of my flowers in pots planted and a few around the house. Had some butterfly flowers to plant in garden and have a row left to put some in but ground wet now....rained most of day yesterday and off and on today. Still have itchy spots from bug bites...same thing happened last year
Little done today....did some online shopping after painting some items that go outside for decorations. Air conditioner on the other day and have heat on today.! 54* now at 1:30 pm...brrr CRAZY weather

Nas, we do have rabbits here partially because people just released them when they left island and others got out of their cages but there are not a real problem at this time.

Tee, when was the eclipse to happen there?
Funny about the cooking insects shows.
I hope the mom is checking with the doctor about the boy. An all night session is far too long.
I am so sorry you are having so much trouble without your glasses. Hope you can get them through Costco.
Sounds like you had a rough week. Hope things are better now.
Sounds like you paid for those steaks twice. Once in cash and twice in time.
Wonderful your grandson got an award. Sorry his parents could not be there in person.
Hope you have a really quiet evening and even weekend.

I have not done much today. I need to get my sleep time straightened out. I wake up too much at night and sometimes have trouble going back to sleep and then sleep away the afternoon.

I caught up on reading posts. I was awake for eclipse and forgot to look since I was trying to get to sleep. There must be something about cooking insects. It saw second show about this today.

I slept two nights in a row. Thought I was back on track, and didn't sleep last night. Temperatures down again. Sunny and pleasant day with foggy, cool nights. Rain predicted on Sunday.

I don't know the age of the boy that has temper tantrums. I saw him once and think he is preschool age.

I had vision problems on Tues. Bad allergies on Wed. That is why I cut back on computer. I have eye glass info from Costco. They gave me so much info, I am not sure if I will be able to order glasses on line, but will try tomorrow. Working wearing glasses and using magnifier is awful.

It has been quite a week for me. I left tv and computer on while working first day. Refrigerator door ajar the next day. I forgot to put on mask when I went into store yesterday and no one said anything. Realized I wasn't wearing mask when a customer asked me a question and took mask out of purse and wore. Couldn't find $10 change today. I cleaned out purse, car, trash, shopping bag and no luck. Removed wallet from purse in carport and found the money folded in 1/4 tucked into corner of billfold section. That's why I prefer using credit card.

I went to the Kroger ( Ralph's here) for steak sale. There weren't any in the case. So I went to ask butcher if he had any. The butcher was well into his 80s and couldn't see and hear. I stood in front of him and he couldn't see or hear me. I walked away to get something and another customer came along when I got back. I told her I don't think he can see and hear. She started banging on counter and yelling and he heard. I asked for the steaks. He said they would be out when his helper arrived in 20 minutes. So I walked around store. Returned to counter in 30 minutes and helper was there. Asked helper for steaks. He said they would be out in 5 minutes. Took almost an hour for them to put out four packages of steaks. I waited 1 1/2 hours for the steaks and they better be worth it.

My youngest grandson received prestigious award at school today. The award is big deal at the school. His parents had to watch via Zoom. DD tried taping ceremony but wasn't successful.

Things are quiet here. Looks like a lot of people left town. Yeah!

I am going to watch tv in hopes I will sleep tonight.

Thelma, a tip to keep rabbits from garden put "blood and bone" about as they don't like smell. This came from another team of whom the member lives in Australia but I think “blood and bone” is available in the states and used as a fertilizer. May be worth checking out.

I got three loads of wash done today but not much else.
My Tennessee friend called and we chatted for about an hour.

Nas, I am just thankful that I can help my friend.

Thelma, you have been busy. I can understand why people eat locust because they are so plentiful when they are out. I thought you would enjoy reading what the Bible says about them.
I think I agree with you about eating locust. If baked they are supposed to be very crunchy.
love the picture of the moon.
You might try applying lavender oil on your exposed areas to keep the bugs away. I would try a small drop first and wait awhile as some people do have an reaction.
Sorry the storm messed up the yard but glad you got the laundry in before the rain hit.
Hope you see your brother and wife.

Tee, the last time I had really good strawberries was the last time I was stateside.
Hope you can get your sleep cycle straighten out.
How old is the child having the temper tantrums? Has the mother talked to the boy’s doctor? Fireworks at one in the morning! ugggghhhh!
I remember you posting about the accident and I do hope the doctor made a note in her records.

Karen, Nice that Kroger refunded you the money. Yes, unloading groceries can be difficult.
Great that you got a message. I want one.
I remember in the eighth grade someone brought chocolate covered grasshoppers to school and shared them. I was chicken.


My son posted the moon from Houston. He feels a lot of the red was from pollution.
I closed out a bank account I have had for years. I have not used it much recently but it was one place I could pay my Solid Waste bill. I can do it on line now. One of the advantages of the pandemic is most places are willing to make payments on line.
I had a big blessing this evening! I went to get my mail and as I was trying to get out of the car a young lady drove up behind me got her mail and was back in her car by the time I finally got my cane out. She got out of her car and asked if she could get my mail for me. I really appreciated the help because steps are a bear. One of the things I really like about Guam!

Stay safe and well.

Jane

Yes Jane there was just a cooking show where a guy was interviewed about eating locust. Toast them in oven then put into chocolate cookies...mmmm, NO THANKS!
A friend of mine in Fla posted a pic of the eclipse....I think he got it from a friend, not sure but sure was pretty:


Today spent most of the day riding the mower after hanging laundry up. Was a very humid HOT day that I was bitten up by bugs, had locust to try to hitch a ride on mower and me. Just as we finished up I grabbed clothes off the line and it started to rain. Lot's of severe storms all around us then. Grabbed a quick nap before getting supper then repotted a few plants and started to thunder so came back inside and then it hit. Wind twirling, rain going sideways...lasted for about 10 minutes I guess. The pretty mowed yard littered with branches and leaves. Hosed the worst of the mess from vehicles and DH picked up some branches from road but will have a job waiting for us when we return from Dr tomorrow. Hoping to get to visit DB and wife after appt....have not seen her since Jan 2019!!! I so very much miss her!
Well gotta be at Dr appt at 8:15 am so that means leaving here about 7 am. Must get to bed and get some rest

My massage was very relaxing but afterward my back was really mad. I struggled to get my groceries in & still have water to bring in. It is suppose to rain today. We really need the rain so I hope it happens.

I don't want to eat a locust. This reminds me of the time our preschool class visited a worm factory. I guess breaded & fried worms are edible. The head teacher ate one. This teacher did not.

Tee... I hope you are able to get your sleep schedule back on track. I sleep good most nights.

It was not a total eclipse here. There was always a sliver in the upper left hand corner. But it was fun to watch between clouds. It least it did not rain.
Tired, so posting thing and going to bed.
I did read your posts.

Jane

Thelma, did you know that locust are edible? Leviticus 11:22  Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind. emoticon

Jane...Wonderful about little to no pain and cutting back on chiro sessions. I need a car with high seats that is easy to enter and exit. Nice of you to take Sam to lunch and offer to bring her to appointments.

Nasfkab...Sorry you have not had strawberries in a long time. It is berry season here and I plan to indulge.

Karen...Glad you received refund for overcharged groceries. I hope you are no picking up order from that store. Carrying groceries up 20 steps is a challenge for me especially canned and bottled items and melon.

Thelma...Locust picture. Wow! I hope you sleep well after the busy day you had.

Mother Nature turned on the heat. 80 degrees day and 60 night. I didn't sleep last night. My schedule is messed up. Either I sleep too much or can't sleep. I need to try to getting back on track whatever the cause.

Nice and quiet at work which was a blessing since neighbor's boy has temper tantrums from morning until night. Then, someone sets off fireworks at 1 am daily.

I have been working on my Medicare appeal. I received another denial and letter today that they are asking for pt records for 12/2020 before making decision. I went on line to obtain my GP's records and what is there is a joke. So I will call and request them since I saw her after falling and hope she noted cut over my eye, etc.

Nothing worth watching on tv so I will check out Netflix, etc.

these are the pics I wanted to post of the cicada's (locust) in my yard. The warmer it gets the louder they "sing" Actually it is a mating call from what I have read
Been another busy day with going around to cemeteries...got flowers on but the weed killer and the Wet & Forget to use on tombstones to take off the black mildew I left home due to the fact it rained all day yesterday and a chance of rain this afternoon (which it did not rain) but I want it to be hot & dry for a few days when I apply to give more time to work before being washed off so will go up another time. We stopped at my cousin's house to check out a door she wants to get fixed and then home to grab a bite before going out to push mow. Hopefully get the rest mowed tomorrow before the nasty storms called for hit tomorrow afternoon.
Need to get to bed here soon so making this short

Nas, the eclipse is tomorrow, Wednesday.

Karen, sorry you had trouble getting on SP.
Wow! How wonderful to attend your grandson’s graduation party! Getting some of the leftovers that include fresh fruit sounds great. Yes, and cookies are nice.

Joyce, glad to hear that Leslie has a daughter who can help. Really glad both are out of the hospital.

Thelma, glad you got some rain. Hope it soaks into the ground.
Good that you are able to get out and clean up the grave sights of your family and leave flowers. We do what we can and need to not worry that others do not.
Really good that you were able to visit your SIL.
From what I understand some places are having a lot of locusts and others nothing. Not sure why. I do not remember them in Oregon. I do know fireflies are only east of the Mississippi.

Tee, thank you.
Sorry you are having so many problems with your meds. What a mess.
Good you got the laundry done.
Hoarders must be interesting.

I am feeling much better with little to no pain! I am cutting back on my chiropractic appointments to once a month with the understanding that I can go in if things flare up.
I took my friend Sam to our Tuesday lunch today. My Nissan Cube has high seats that are easy to sit and swing our legs into and then do the same getting out. Sam is doing well with the cane but needs places that do not have steps which can be a challenge. I also told her that I was willing to take her to appointments if she needed help.

Stay safe grandmothers.

Jane

Jane...Glad you feel better.

Nasfkab...Thanks for the wishes. I dipped strawberries in dark chocolate.

Karen....Wonderful that you attended GG graduation. I hope chiro leads to you feeling a lot better.

Joyce. A blessing that Adalyn is home and Ty and 15 yr old can help.

Thelma...Nice that rain watered garden and you went to DH's family graves and visited his oldest sister.

It was warmer (70s) with breeze. Knees didn't hurt but I can't stay awake after breakfast. The medication switch caused sores in my mouth and forearm bruise overnight.. I feel fine after taking medication and eating. Then, overwhelming fatigue strikes and need to go to bed. This has been going on for a while and doctor is clueless. I did laundry on Sunday and food shopped on Monday.

I watched a Amazon Prime movie that was so boring I turned it off after 30 minutes. Now I obsessed with watching Hoarders. I have friend that is a hoarder.

Work today and off to bed.

Great you will see chiro soon, hope it helps, Karen, good you will get leftover fruit & cookies, are they chocolate ones? Relief to know about your family, Joyce, well wishes for all of them. I have never been in US when the cicadas emerge had not heard about them. Hope you get proper rest, Thelma.

Joyce, good to hear Adalyn & Mom home and that Ty has some time off to help out. The 15 yr old will be a great help. Hope there are others lined up to help out once Ty needs to return to work. All the best to them all.
It rained here all day....last I looked at rain gauge it had a bit over 1/2"...we were so in need of rain, have not had any to speak of since first of the month and we have been watering garden from the stream down in front of house.
Got around to DH's family graves yesterday and to visit his older sister for a while. Have not seen here since way before the pandemic. Tomorrow going around to put flowers on my side of family and to weed and straighten up. I guess once I am gone there will not be any more traditional putting flowers on cemeteries for memorial day and Christmas. My brother's health not good enough for him to get around to shop for flowers or place them. My sister won't go for Memorial occasion since she saw a snake up there once and her health not that great either...it saddens me to think my loved ones will not be remembered.
I was hoping to post pictures of all those locusts on the ground under the tree but forgot to bring camera in with me to connect to laptop and I am ready to go to bed soon so will post another time. My son went down south-east of here the other day and he said when he got out of vehicle there was a "roar" and then he realized it was the locust. I heard they were more of them down that way
Better get my butt to bed, can't seem to get enough rest any more...wake up just as tired as when I went to bed

Good evening all, it is a rainy day, went to lunch with friends and took Kayla to groomer.

Adalyn and mom are home, luckily Ty gets some time off of work so he will be able to help her and she has a 15 year old daughter to help too.. Thank you all for your prayers and support. This is going to be a long haul for them.

Wishing you a great evening and a beautiful tomorrow.

Thelma so glad your hubby found that tick.

Prayers that the baby & mama are able to come home soon. I hope there are friends & family near by to help care for them when they do get home.

I tried to get on spark late last night but my system was not working right. I could read just a few post & not able to comment.

Yesterday was my youngest grandsons graduation party. It was so nice. I got to see my grandkids & others. My daughter is bringing me some fresh fruit & cookies that were left over from the party. It was pretty hot out but it did not storm.

I see my chiro doctor this afternoon. I felt a little less pain a few days after my last visit so maybe a few more adjustments will help me.

Karen, I do have my ups and downs with yesterday being a down.

Thelma, great you had company and good that DH put the Bio-freeze on your back and found the tick. That can be scary.
Locust singing sounds interesting. Never thought about it that way. Never heard or seen locust.

Nas, if it is not a full eclipse in Bangladesh it should be partial but I would say late at night. It is almost six thirty here and two thirty there right now.

Joyce, I am sorry that Adalyn was admitted to the infant ICU.
And now Leslie is in the hospital and will be very limited in her activities for at least six months! She is going to need some help and hope there is some people there for her.

Tee, great information about the eclipse.
Good information about jaundice in a newborn.
Sorry your knee is bothering you again.
Glad a switch in thyroid meds made you feel better.

I am feeling better today. Not sure what triggered the back and shoulder problems.

Jane

Tee, thank you for that info. She is still in the hospital, her mom went back in last night because of another blood clot, they gave her a fusion of Iron, I thought she was getting blood transfusions but it is iron infusions. Tyler told me today they nearly lost her. She had a blood transfusion when a child so that is why they are hesitate in giving her another one but if she has to go back into hospital again with any more blood clots they will give her one even though there are risks. The dr also told Ty her activity for at least 6 months to a year will be very limited.
No stair, no playing around with Jaxon, reading etc, if she takes a shower that is all she can do for the day. I don't know how they are going to do this, Jaxon is 1-1/2 old. I wish we lived closer and I could help more. A lot of people are praying for them so I have faith everything will work out. I appreciate all your prayers and kind thoughts.

Jane...Great that you walked. Sorry about the shoulder and back pain. Those that live in the eastern third of the US will see little or nothing of the eclipse. Those that live in the central and far west states will see the first half if not most of it before moonset. The eclipse will be visible from start to finish in a slice of the US Pacific Coast, southern and western parts of Alaska and all of Hawaii

Thelma...Sorry about the tick. Using bug/tick repellent and covering up with long clothing when working outdoors is recommended to keep ticks away. My doctor nephew got tick on the beach.

Joyce....Sorry the baby is in ICU with jaundice. I am praying for her speedy recovery. A score of 8 is considered low. 60-80% of newborn infants have jaundice. My eldest grandson was born with it and placed under light in the nursery. Newborns are usually born with a score of 5 that increases in the next 24-48 hours and decreases in 7 days. A score of 15-20 requires more than light treatment treatment. Jaundice can be from mother/baby incompatible blood. My DD has RH factor which caused her son's jaundice.

Karen...Glad you are feeling good after morning meds. Bedbugs seems to be common in hotels/motels.

Nasfkab....Thanks for posting bedbug remedy. I hope I never have them, but would toss furniture if I did.

I had terrible knee pain yesterday. Used lidocaine roll on and managed to food shop while leaning on cart. No motorized cart at that store. Carrying package upstairs and into my apt was a killer and why I didn't post yesterday.

A switch in thyroid medication and pain gone and mobility returned. So I am going to do laundry, etc.

It seems when it rains it pours, Leslie is doing better they let her go home today after she had another infusion. But Adalyn came down with jaundice, Ty had to take her to emergency to admit her since she wasn't actually born in the hospital so they could treat her. She is in the infant ICU the jaundice has different ranges apparently and hers is going up and down. She was as high as an 8 and I don't know how good or bad that is. Otherwise all is well.

Was reading that best way to get rid of bed bugs is to use diatocamoues earth, seems there are 2 grades & have to use the Food Grade. Wonder if we will have it too the moon eclipse, Jane, it is great you are walking about more. Think you will enjoy this thread, Karen. Well I wish we had the insects the birds would love them, Thelma. I am happy to see our birds & leave water out so they can have it. Nothing else as have enough bugs.

Wow! Have not been on here for awhile due to getting company, getting my flower plants and setting them out. Just came in to get a shower since all hot and sweaty from working out in yard. I had DH to put some Bio-freeze on my spine and shoulder earlier in the week and he seen what he thought was a suspicious mole. Upon checking it out was a deer tick...the size of a dot an ink pen will make and one that will transmit Lyme disease. Not able to see myself where it was so was just a miracle I asked him to put lotion on and for him to find it.
The baby is beautiful. So sorry the Mommy went thru what she did. Hope she is much improved and hopefully home now
Jane, great you getting in some more walking.
Tee, I am like you when it comes to checking out who is too quick with the knife in getting a Dr.
The locust are out and singing...the hotter, the louder they are. One tree looks to have a 55 gallon drum of them around on the ground. I see the birds are gobbling up.
Time to think about getting a meal. Everyone have a wonderful weekend emoticon emoticon

Karen, I leave my masks in my car if I am going to use them again. The car gets hot during the day so I figure most things are killed with the heat.
Is there a way you can check for bedbugs?
Hope you don’t have them in your newly acquired chair.

Joyce, your great granddaughter is adorable! I am so sorry to hear that Leslie started to hemorrhage and glad she was able to be gotten to the hospital quickly. Really sorry she lost so much blood.
Hang in there and enjoy the newest member of the family.

Tee, I understand about not wanting someone who does a lot of surgery.
I would really be cold at 50 degrees.
Glad you woke up feeling great. Good to get an appointment before the doctor leaves. Hope Medicare comes through.
Having knee problems is the pits.
I love all your 21st! It will not happen again.

Nas, good to hear from you and sorry you missed the posts for this team for awhile.

Guam is going to have a total eclipse of the moon Wednesday night. It will be what they call a blood moon because the moon will be close enough to the earth that the shadow will be in the center but there will be a ring around the outer edges. I just called my grand girls and told one of them about it.
I walked around the cul-de-sac three times this evening and have not taken any pain medication for three days!

Take care and be safe.

Jane

Jane...Sorry you didn't do much today. Same here. I am not changing endo since other one does too much surgery. I am a believer of going out with the same parts I was born with.

Karen...Glad you got out and bought chair. I am sure the chair will be fine. .

Joyce...Sorry Leslie required surgery and hospitalization. I will pray she and Adalyn can go home soon. Beautiful pictures. I bet you can't wait to hold her.

Nice weather. 25 mph wind kicked up in the afternoon. 50 degrees again tonight. 30 degrees in the mountains. Glad I don't live there.

I woke feeling great. Don't remember when I felt this good. I called pulmonary and scheduled appointment with my doctor before he leaves. Called Mcare and told they have 60 days to respond to my appeal. Called ortho billing office to let them know about my appeal so they don't send me to collections.

I planned to exercise and shop, but that didn't happen. My knee went out while showering. . Put lidocaine on it and doing other things allowed me to drive to bank for quarters to do laundry this weekend. Knee gave out when I returned home. I really need knee injection and wish Mcare would answer appeal.

Today is the 21st day and 21st week of the 21st year of the 21st century. Hope your day was good.

It has been a hectic couple of days. Our granddaughter in law, Leslie gave birth to our 2nd great granddaughter on the 19th, she had a mid-wife but she started to hemorrhage, they called 911 and took her to the hospital, she had surgery, they removed some blood clots, yesterday she had to have a transfusion she lost so much blood. today is boing better, will go home once the bleeding in under control. Adalyn our 8th great grandchild is doing well. Dad is now a little calmer and mom wants to go home. Our daughter who was babysitting their first child Jaxon (1-1/2) is also getting some rest . It was a scary time for us all.

Here are 2 pictures of Adalyn





Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I don't get out much but I keep several masks in my bag. I use them more then once before washing or discarding.

I found a really nice small chair at the senior citizen sale yesterday. It was just $6.00 so I bought it. Now i am hoping I do not bring those dreaded bedbugs into my home. I am thinking it was donated from another senior who perhaps passed away or moved to a smaller home. I sure hope that is the case.

Celeste, I find I breathe better with a cloth mask.
Guam’s governor has not lowered the wearing of masks and probably will not for as long as she can hold our. We may open to tourist of whom are mainly Asians who have used masks for years so it will not be a problem for them.

Tee, I tend to do more as you say. With the heat here I figure most viruses are killed while sitting in the car much of the day.
Hope you have the cholesterol med figured out so you do not have another bad reaction.
Are you going to switch endo’s? I know you have not been happy with the one you have.
Hope you find an allergy med that works.
Glad you found pizza in the air fryer tastes great.

I have not done much today. Need to get out of this slump.

Jane

I don't wash my cloth mask daily. I tried this and took a few days to dry. I wear paper mask more than once too. I won't toss a mask I only wear for 5 minutes, but toss mask I wear longer. Don't think I am the only one that does this. My coworkers take the same mask out of their purse to wear. Noticed people hang their paper mask on the front car mirror. I only wear mask when in store or restaurant.

I took cholesterol medication last night and no problem. I think I may have taken supplements before taking this medication and it caused the symptoms. Time will tell if no symptoms continue.

I was looking for new pulmonary doctor on the internet and discovered an endo that joined my doctor's practice. She does a lot of research, specializes in thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and practiced in five countries. I watched her videos and was shocked to discovered that CA has the highest rate of thyroid cancer, which is attributed to air quality.

It is in the 50s. Sunny and windy day. Supposed to rain this weekend. I woke with allergy symptoms again. Taking Claratin helped during the day and sneezing now. I going to look for allergy medication that can be taken at night and wake without symptoms in the morning. My son said the medication is good.

I made DiGiorno pizza in my air fryer tonight. First time I had pizza in a year. I dislike frozen pizza but this one was good.

Jane....Glad Sam is better. Good you hear you spent time with son's family and got avocados.

Roz...Nice of you are exercising and neighbor to fix water.

Karen...Sorry you ached after chiro and happy you feel better.

Joyce...Congratulations on second great granddaughter!

Jane - VERY good reminder about the masks!!!! Cloth masks should be washed daily & paper masks are for single use. I have one cousin who thought because she was only in the grocery store for 15 (or so minutes), she could just keep the paper mask in the car & use it again next time. And it's not like they can't afford masks . . . . .

And like you, I also continue to wear my mask out in public. Thankfully, I still see a lot of people continue doing that. Gives me hope!!!

Roz, good to hear from you. How are the grands?
Yard work for exercise is great.
Great that your neighbor was able to seal the water leak for you.
Sorry the lockdown will affect your family because they bring the girls to you. Would it be possible for them to get a permit to travel after 9:00 p.m?

Karen, being sore after being adjusted does happen. Glad you are better now.
I am not comfortable about not wear a mask when out in the general public. Yes, I have been vaccinated but I do not want to end up in the hospital as my immune system is shot.

Joyce, restaurants can be iffy because they are serving food.
How wonderful that another great grand has been born!

Tee, sorry about the allergy attack. Are you using a cloth or paper mask? If a cloth you may want to wash it daily.
Sorry you need to find another doctor. That does not sound good.
Hope you are feeling better when you read this.

Sam is much better today. The antibiotic is working well and the therapist came and worked with her.
I have not done much today but did do some cleaning in my bedroom.

Take care grandmothers and be safe.

Jane

I had a bad allergy attack upon leaving work. All the street parking spaces were taken and I had to park in the lot with flowers surrounding my car. I started sneezing and coughing as soon as I reached my car. Used a half box of tissues on drive home. Climbing stairs to my apt was difficult. Doctor on tv said it is a bad pollen season and can attach to mask and cause breathing problems. I wonder if this was my reason I had trouble wearing mask last week. Cool and windy here. I became extremely tired after dinner and fell asleep on sofa with windows open. Woke with stuffed nose.

I received a call from pulmonary office. My doctor left and I need to make appointment to see a different one. This will be my third doctor in 6 years. Wonder what is causing these doctors to leave.

I can watch Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, etc. with Roku. Amazon movies contain commercial which is why I am crazy about watching movies there. Hallmark movies are on Roku free channel.

I didn't sleep well last night and heading to bed. Wishing all a nice Thursday.

Happy Wednesday, had fun at our luncheon. We are pretty much open, you do have to wear a mask to enter the restaurant but can take it off once your inside. The servers still have to wear masks. I think it depends on the businesses.

My daughter called me Tyler (our grandson) and his wife are having their 2nd child today. She was going into labor but haven't heard if she delivered. this will be our 2nd great granddaughter (we also have 1 step great granddaughter) but all the rest are boys. Same with our grandchildren, we had 6 boys 4 girls. Her name is gong to Adalyn.

Roz good going on your exercising.

Tee I have Amazon Prime but have never used the other benefits, let me know what you think.

Blessings all.

I am way behind on reading post.

I went to chiropractor on Monday. Yesterday I was in more pain but better so far today.

TEE...I will be interested in hearing what movies you watch on Amazon Prime.

Our Governor has set up a million dollar lottery drawing for those who have received the vaccine. Not may people in my area are wearing the mask. I think the govenor might have removed the mandate.

Stay well grandmas.

Good time of day to everyone,

Have been exercising somewhat these past few days, been doing lots of bicep curls, overhead squats, just to name a few. I've also been outside cleaning the yard, I usually spray the weeds with a weed killer but as we've had some rain the ground was soft so they were easy to pull out with the help of the cutlass and hoe sometimes.

Yesterday I accidentally punctured the water line to the house but lucky for me it was very tiny and my neighbour was kind enough to seal it, I didn't realise my cutlass was so sharp.


We're still in lock down, and we now have a 9pm to 5am curfew which doesn't affect me
I don't go out at nights anyway. My daughter and son-in-law will be because they usually come at night when they bring the girls and would leave sometimes at 11 pm.
They will have to adjust definitely

Have a great time of day everyone and stay safe
Roz.

Nas, falling on wet sidewalks does not sound good so staying home was best.

Joyce, living in a gated community has its perks. Wild life in it does not sound fun. Sounds like you have a variety of choices as to where you can walk. Feral dogs are a hazard here.
Your Red Hat luncheon sounds fun.

Tee, yes, wages are low here but the work only took about twenty minutes.
Pieology was great. I got the thin bread with lots of veggies and other things for $8.99.
I am so sorry your boss uses the air conditioner incorrectly.
Nice to walk afterwork.
Interesting about changing from Netflix to Amazon Prime.
Sorry the cholesterol med is still causing problems. Hope the doctor is willing to make a change.

My friend Sam got to the doctor today and they took four x-rays of her arm. A young man who has been a friend of her son’s for years came to water blast the roof and took her in. She broke her elbow awhile back and the doctor saw the pins. Above the pins they saw signs of an infection so now she is on an antibiotic. She had had another rough night but the day was better. Hopefully she will sleep tonight.
I called my son this morning about him bringing me some avocados. He said to come over and get them. I thought I would go in the afternoon but awhile later he called and asked when I was coming. I said I would be right over. Spent a few hours with them and got a hug from my granddaughters when I left. It was great to get the hugs.
This evening I went to church and heard a good sermon about soul winning.

Stay safe.

Jane

Jane...Great price for car labor. It would cost more here. How was Pieology? One opened near me but I haven't been there. I hope your friend receives the right treatment and feels better. I need lubricating knee injection. Mcare paid for injection, but not visit. I sent appeal to Mcare on April 29th and haven't heard. Received bill from doctor today.

Nasfkab...Sorry about the rain and happy you didn't garden or fall. I dislike fried food bc I can't stand the smell.

Joyce. Enjoy red hat luncheon. I would be walking at the beach with those critters in my neighborhood.

Not much going on here. Foggy and cold this morning which makes getting move on difficult. Sun appeared in the afternoon but still cool. I worked and boss turned on ac and froze me out. She doesn't put on ac when it is hot and I sweat. Puts ac on when cold and I freeze. Geez! I walked near work, but was too tired to do exercise.

I set up Amazon Prime video tonight. It was easy and I can watch movies there from now on.

I took cholesterol medication (Cresta) last night and had heartburn and muscle spasms an hour later. The heartburn feels like heart attack. Drinking milk calmed the burn. Then, gas started in. I slept for few hours before waking with terrible leg muscle spasm. I was very tired too. The strange thing is my knees don't hurt after taking this medication. Go figure! Symptoms are supposed to dissipate after taking the medication for a while. Well, I have been taking for a month and symptoms getting worse. I am going to write doctor to ask for Lipitor which didn't cause symptoms.

Time for me to watch tv before heading to bed.

Hello all, a beautiful day, did our zoom Bible study. Then Kayla and I went for a walk, but not as long as yesterday. I usually walk on in our gated community, mostly streets but there is some sand dunes and paths. I am careful walking with Kayla there, especially now when the bears and coyotes are out and we do some some bob cats and mountain lions. The other gated park here has more problems with the mountain lions. I have seen a bear, he ran in front of us, I think he was more scared then I was, Kayla didn't even pay attention. I sometimes do drive down to the beach. Since we are more open now I may start doing that.

Tomorrow is Red hat luncheon. Have a great evening.

Nas, sorry there is no insurance available for you.
There are foods I do not care for because of the smell.

Joyce, great that you could go to lunch with your friend. The enchilada sounds delicious.
Wore your puppy out! Do you walk along a beach or on a sidewalk or path?

Tee, thank you. I am glad the injections are over.
I did not hear anything under the car. My friend saw something move when I was driving. The cost for putting the clamps back on the pan and putting in the pump for the windshield wipers was $68.53 for the labor.
The other soups at the restaurant had Po either before or after telling what was in them.
I am with you as far as wearing masks goes. Yes, I have been fully vaccinated but I also have several health issues to consider. I take my masks down when alone and wear one when around others that I am not sure are vaccinated.
Some people have go to CA and others elsewhere. There are large Chamorro communities in several states.
Your gas prices are really high!
Several people including me have had to change appointments because the doctors went on vacation. In the past the vacation was planned so the appointment was made with no hitches.
I have forgotten, what is the injection you need?

This morning I got my car checked and the clamps holding the “pan” under the car put back as well as the pump for my windshield wiper put in.
I was to take my friend Sam to Pieology for lunch with our Tuesday group but she called and said she was not able to go because of the pain in her arm that had kept her awake most of the night. We are hoping she will get the arm x-rayed again as it does not seem to be healing as it should. It has been six weeks and still swollen with trouble moving it.
There were four of us that had pizza together.
I came home and have not done much else. Part of the problem is the rain which comes unexpectedly and sometimes even when the sun is shining..

Jane

Jane...Glad you had last knee injection. I hope ins co comes thru and pays for them. Glad auto part arrived. I hope noise under car isn't expensive fix. Vietnamese soup is called Po. I love wontons so much I used to make them. Now I buy them frozen.

Nasfkab...Terrible that you lack health ins and need to pay for everything. I never cared for enchiladas but love fajita that is sautéed veggies and meat or fish served with flour tortilla, rice, beans, cheese and avocado.

Joyce...Great that you enjoyed lunch with friend and walked Kayla afterwards.

It is official that we must wear mask until June 15th when Ca reopens. I will continue doing what I have been doing.

I hope people leaving Guam for jobs in the states don't come to CA where sales tax is 10% and gasoline $4 a gallon.

Cold, cloudy and drizzle here. Morning and night fog on the coast. Suppose to be warmer tomorrow.

I stayed indoors since I didn't need anything. I did two 30 minute intermediate live exercise sessions. They were difficult and I am proud that I finished them. Showered, cleaned and cooked afterwards. I notice the daily live exercise session are saved on YouTube so I don't have to wait to do them when they air.

My endo's office phoned today. Doctor will be on vacation when I was scheduled to see her. I had to change lab and follow up appointment.

I still haven't heard from Medicare about them paying for doctors visit for injection. I checked Medicare website and nothing. Wish they would reply so I can make injection appointment.

Happy Monday everyone, it is overcast rained a little this morning. Went to lunch with my friend Sandy, I had a spinach & mushrooms enchilada, it was very good. When I got home took Kayla for a walk, we ended up walking 5k. She is sleeping behind me on the chair now.

Had a restful weekend. Yesterday really relaxed.

Have a great new week.
