  4. hi all good afternoon hot today here too possible storms tonight but with the humidity this high i worry storms nay be severe just organizing and tidyng up today nothing major lol too hot to do much lol is this a secomd wedding sandra with a second daughter coz i thought a short time ago one got married?? if that is the case no wonder you are a bit stressed huim a bit tuckered out so going to sit back for a bit talk to you all later h how s bo doing??-
  5. yes bgs i agree as she has been suffering quite a while wit it i lookd it up and it is quite life threatening especially with it leak-through a fissure into other body parts and it could choke off the blood supply if left alone and unattended for long i hope this feels her better she just got the respirator taken off this am and cant talk strongly yet but i will wait till she calls me i feel as though i have accomplished a lot in the past few days just keeping busy of course the yarn balls were busy work i guess but got a lot done besides that and it sounds like you did too bgs lol i did notice too that some of the weights in rhss are just really thicker for some reason like that darn paddy green and now i noticed cherry red as well those two are kinda harder to work with and dont measure up to size as nicely either almost have to use a g or 7 hook to get them close to 6 inches fissy fussy arent i lol its very hot and humid here and will be for the next few days i guess broken up by some more rain tonight perhaps we were running a deficit in moisture now i think we normed out lol i cut up an old flannel gown i just got too hot in and made the nicest softest dusting cloths too i used the long sleeves whole as they fit over my ceiling fan blades nicely and catch any dust too like a skinny pillow case lol just one swipe per blade and top and bottom are done and toss the cloth in the washer with your towels lol just my own little discovery lol so i dusted all the stuff inn the bedroom and craft room too all tv screens i could find !! they do tv screens and mirrors and comp screens lol all for now taking a break and kicking back for a bit have a nice day everyone
  6. i had it worked off pretty good as this small basket was overflowing lol till i added more that is 32 squares though so far!!
  7. hi all rough morning weather wise rained to beat the band and the thunder was all one 2 hour roll i have never heard it that way before just rolled on and on renewing itself as it went tornado sirens went off a county over but not for us but we are only a couple miles away from the county line and daughter is right on the line soooo had news last night, sis entered emerg. room via ambulance and went into emergency surgery about 8 30 pm for a colon surgery apparently part of her colon was twisted and had a fissure where part of it was damaged leaking into other body cavities at first they could not guarantee they could remove the damaged part or take a lot more but as it went they were able to save enough so she does have a colon still and wont have to wear a colostomy bag so that is good news she was just out of surgery when he called at about 11 last evening so i hope to talk to her today at least she sure has been through the wringer with all of this, poor thing they have treated her for diverticuitus, crones, ibs and an asst of other intestinal problems but nothing ever seemed to help so i hope this does the trick the y were kinda leery about surgery because of her weakened health condition but had to take the risk or she would not have made it it was like a 50/50 odds they said so someone was in her corner huh well with that said i guess i will move on to a cheerier topic i have still been working off my balls i added some small balls of little varg balls to my basket and so doesn't seem the basket is going down much. bu quite a few rubber bands ahead lol i have 32 squares so far just the last couple days and when i work them all off i wont have any smallish balls left lol woe is me huh lol i am very happy about that to be honest lol i think a vow to work them off BEFORE so many multiply is my new creedo lol well hec about all i can think of today sooo ill say adios for now All of you have a grand day ok!
  8. o oh lyn get some rest lady!! Bgs so glad you got to enjoy it i have only seen a grand production of River Dance which was simply amazing and saw the Celtic Women here too but im sure i would like those you both mentioned but no one to go with anymore as my sister cant do things like that anymore i have been busying myself with working off some balls out of the ball basket i reclaimed 18 or so rubber bands lol that is how i keep my balls together lol but still i have more lol i think left alone in that smallish ball basket they must multiply you know in the years of wire hangers i think they did too cos as much of them as i gave to goodwill there was always more lol i have long since then had plastic hangers but the opposite is true i think with them as they seem to just disappear overnight lol like at night i go to bed with several hanging by the dryer and in the am i dont see them anymore they have taken leave of the laundry room lol not even leaving a note mind you!! How rude huh !! or they have transported themselves to a laundry room far far away in a different dimension perhaps ??? maybe where hangers roam free, and wild its a dilemma i tell ya!! so i have at least 20 more squares for pr res just from scraps and balls lol if the amount of the ball can not even do a yo yo then and only then it goes into the bird nesty jar lol i waste little yarn and the birds love the yarn pieces course first i have to cut it into smaller pieces but that only takes a minute i am struggling through the darker color balls and mixing in some varg or off white here and there as i go cause otherwise working with just darks would not be fun for me lol i am all about color lol ok well other than that lol nothing much new weather has been warm and sunny so wash-tub of flowers were moved back to their spot where they can soak up the sun today there are so many buds sheesh!!and i never worry about the succulents ( cacti and such ) as they pretty much take care of themselves lol we have an understanding lol Handy is home early needs 3 more long boards to finish framing in the canopy frame and didnt feel like walking Menards today that ladder work really bothers his hip, even with the tems unit full force so he is home now resting his hip how is your leg mary jo?? and who was it that sprained something else?? hope all are well and enjoying the day today have a good one ok!!
  9. well i had a long post and poof it went bye bye so hello lyn hi to all for now be back latrer on ok have a great day
  10. hi all well we escaped the storms yesterday but dreary and rain expected today i had handy move that tub of budding flowers to a sheltered side of the deck and then he put a little roof over it with two pieces of wood so if we get hail which we usually do anymore with rain it wont knock them down there is no such animal anymore it seems ass a gentle rain you are right about that brenda i started watching a ken moore documentary on The West and will finish watching that today i guess as i have no real daylight to do much else lol it just started sprinkling now poor handy will not be able to work for sure he just left but will soon be back standing on an aluminum ladder with a power tool is not good in the rain (can you say zap!!) thought it was useless to try but you know how they are they dont listen lol ill have too look up and see how to clean a touch screen today probably soft cloth and water but just wanna make sure i have never used anything but just dry wipe it with a soft cloth is alll i mean how dirty can it get right but with a touch you do get fingerprints sometimes oh now the sprinkles have stopped its still gonna rain more but apparently not right now lol so, just checking in sorry about mil lyn and sandra i had to laugh at the reference to the wizard and oz! Dorothy really got the best of that deal but not from the wizard really but from the ruby slippers lol classic movie one of my all time favs so see you all soon have some special kind of a day today regardless whether the weather is cooperating or not in your parts ok!! unexpected but fitting pun lol oh now it seems to be brightening up a bit well that is appreciated!!
