    Hi ladies. After a couple of weeks of downright chilly weather we are back to hot and humid again. It’s been a busy few days here plus my sister in law’s dad died and that took an afternoon for visiting the funeral home, plus the funeral this morning. We went to lunch with dh’s sister and her hubby and mil afterwards. The first restaurant we went to had no electricity, so we had to choose someplace else. And traffic was awful for a Wednesday morning. Youngest Dd and I are going away this weekend with my sister, sisters in law and nieces to a spa. It’s about a four to five hour drive each way. Then on Monday we are leaving to go camping for the week. Luckily Dh doesn’t want to leave until after lunch. It’s not as rushed as it sounds. We have an RV and we keep everything we need in there all summer. We just pack our clothes and some food and we’re good to go. But now I have a dilemma....should I clean the house tomorrow,more leave it. It’s not like I’m going to be here to enjoy it for the next week or so.......:) So, nothing especially exciting going on here. I’ve been crocheting Barbie doll clothes. Our grand daughter is getting a Barbie for her birthday. Those little clothes don’t take long, but they are hard on the hands. Plus, they need to go on easily since she is just turning 5. So far I have a jacket and a dress. Most patterns call for size 10 thread, and I just can’t crochet with that. Too much old age in my fingers and hands I think. Not to mention the faltering vision.....

    Another Barbie dress. At least they are quick to finish. Dd specifically asked for non fussy, easy to put on clothes.

    Hi peeps.... Sorry for not responding to each of you individually, but I read through everyone's posts. Beautiful! Beginning a butterfly graph gan for a little girl - I offered to make her a blanket and her stepmom told me her ratty butterfly blanket needs to be replaced! I happened to have the pattern on hand.... Take care, my friends - so good to see all the activity here💞

    Good morning house! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was busy...I feel like they all are. Friday I didn't have patients, so I weeded the 2 sections of the yard that the previous owners have all sorts of plants through. They are really pretty and I don't know what much of it is, but something blooms at least every season. I do know that I have a few rose bushes and my MIL gets to prune those since she knows how lol Saturday I worked in the morning and then joined DH and my dad in sanding the decktop. Sunday we sanded more and thought we'd get the base coat of stain on after dinner, but it started to drizzle so we covered it up for the night. Yesterday I had a couple morning patients then met my parents at my house and got that base coat of stain down while my mom painted some spindles (we decided replacing the spindles was easier than sanding them all and not very expensive). Then was back at the office for more patients. Then met DH at the vet across the street with the turtles. One of them has been breathing through her mouth a lot and Google only scares you more saying it's a respiratory infection (none of the other symptoms present), which is apparently fatal to turtles! 😯 We brought the second one along just in case. The vet didn't think she has an RI, but did give her an injection of antibiotics and sent us home with an extra injection to give her on Saturday. If she doesn't improve, then he'll do blood work. But, he was fairly confident that there's not really much going on since there was no mucous and her mouth looked healthy. And now here we are today. I think I finally get a low key day! At the office now and I do have paperwork to get caught up from yesterday and banking to take care of as well in between patients. Oh, and DH got 2 job offers to compare He currently works at Bayer and after buying Monsanto they are closing the Pittsburgh location He actually likes working for them, so this is a bit hard for him. His director just went on a rant when DH filled him in. The director is super angry that Bayer wasn't offering any of their good employees the opportunity to continue working remotely. Oh well, their loss! It is what it is. At least he's very marketable since he's a computer IT guy. OK, I think that about covers it! Diana - Glad to hear that you dodged the worst of the storm and that your brother's house is on the mend from his issues! Love the eagles. Mary - Glad I could inspire your reorganization lol I think Knit the Bridge was about 6 years ago now! Wow, where does the time go??? Brenda - Great idea to take something out with you every time you leave. So much better than trying to do it all at once. Mona - I hope DH's appointments go well!

    It was a nice trip to AR--good food, hot, visiting with numerous friends, hot, some crocheting time, little or no internet assess, did I mention it was hot? LOL I'm so ready for fall. Still tired today--it's about a six hour drive not counting stops. Tomorrow there's DH's regular oncology apts and then I keep the grands for several hours, and his CT apt Wednesday so more driving in store. We're back on the school schedule so I pick up the 4 year old from nursery school on Mondays and keep her about 3 hours. Luckily she fell asleep after lunch and I got a little nap too. Washing clothes and assorted little chores are all I accomplished today, but that was fine, too. Hope everyone has a good week!
