  1. πŸ™‚ I love my new doors and am so glad to have the install finished. One less thing to do if we have to leave our home or something happens to one of us.

    πŸ™‚ Also glad the appointments for my husband’s cataract surgery have ended. He does go back in six months or so. We have to order new glasses.

    😦 He practically just got new glasses. 😦 Stubbornness can cost a lot of money.

  2. πŸ˜€ Miss Bosley did not give us trouble in getting into the carrier this morning. The med worked!

    πŸ˜€While speaking to Wes a baby lizard ran into his apartment from his screened porch. Coastal living!

    πŸ˜€I am feeling ready for Monday’s surgery. Thankful for good medical care.

    πŸ˜€ Many praying friends

    πŸ˜€ I found some podcasts, Worship Wednesdays, by Paul Wilbur, I have been enjoying

    πŸ˜’ Art’s complaining about neighborhood speedbumps and long redlights

    πŸ˜€ Spotted more gulf fritillary butterfies

    πŸ˜’ Butterflies move too fast for photos so far

    πŸ˜€ First Covid nasal swab test appears to be negative and they did not take out part of my brain at the same time

    πŸ˜€ Two friends went on vacations to Canada, one to Banff, the other to Glacier, and had great trips with photos to share

  3. Nice visit with the grandchildren and their folks.

    Twenty one has successfully completed her first week in the hotel though she appears to be slipping a bit.

    Husband is off to the men’s monthly fellowship group. He has missed the past few months due to various other things keeping him busy. He had planned to take the children to Barbecue Days in Kamiah but realized he needs fellowship so made the decision to take them to part of the events rather than all.

    Somebody/ something ate all the tops of the carrots, the cucumbers, and the silk off the corn.

  4. 😦 When Nightingale was weedwhacking in the front yard a few days ago, a stone must have been caught up and slung by the weedwhacker into one of the sidelight windows of our front door. At first, before we realized what had happened, I noticed only several cracks branching out from the center of the impact, but as we watched, the glass continued to crackle for several minutes, making a gentle crackling sound. Nightingale grabbed a roll of duct tape and taped the glass in strips from top to bottom to keep the tiny glass pieces from falling out.

    😦 So one more repair needed for this house. It will have to wait.

    πŸ™‚ Surprisingly, it doesn’t look as “redneck” as it sounds.

  5. 😊 8 weeks of summer camp completed successfully. May God finish the work started in the campers

    😐 I’m exhausted. And still sick. On my second round of antibiotics

    πŸ˜€ Thankful for medical care for me and for all those on here going through bigger things than Strep throat.

    😊 Our garden is again producing like crazy. Harvested 23 almost perfect cabbages along with a huge pile of corn and green peppers.

    πŸ˜€ Heading to my dad’s 90th birthday party next week. Sure hope I have more energy by then.

    Not sure what all to pull out of the garden – we could have frost any time now and being gone is worrisome for me – thus the work we’ve been doing in processing all the veggies.

  6. That is difficult to be gone when there could be frost. How far away to you have to go for your dad’s birthday? I hope you can get some good rest before then.

    Bummer about the rock, Kizzie.

  7. πŸ™‚ Surgery went well and is behind me, after what’s been a 2-year battle with this injured knee. It was “the last resort,” the thing I really-really-really didn’t want to do, but needed to happen in the end. God was patient with my kicking (weakly) and screaming.

    😦 Recovery so far has been a bit rocky due mainly to paperwork snags I’m still dealing with and requiring numerous phone calls and emails to try to get everything squared away; but also due to the crumminess of that post-surgery crash.

    πŸ™‚ Amazing neighbors and other helpers who have provided me with encouragement, food, and other practical aid. And so many prayers, cards, phone calls, texts and well-wishes.

    πŸ™‚ A sweet cat to keep me company (when she’s not hogging the blanket at night).

  8. Kathaleena, it’s an 8 hour drive. But we also hope to get to the mountains for lunch on our 38th anniversary.

    Dj, so good to hear of your progress.

    Janice – Miss B whisker! Too cute.
