Watching the weather really close.  Marco should hit first in Lousianna and then Laura will be next wither Lousianna or Texas.  We are out of the cones for both, but we may get some wind and rain.  Please everyone be careful and keep an eye out.

 

That Marco was a lot nicer than Laura. She is turning out to be a very NASTY B....!!

Take care of your self's!. Our prayers are with you!

Well, I had to put have my moms dog put down , I was so overly emotional, cried.... you know ... Mom has been gone for over two years, and mentally gone for 5 and it just breaks my heart.

Over the past 3 days I have tried 3 different crochet patterns, one of them 3 times, and I just can't get the counts right or figure out the pattern...

When I put down my previous dog, my beautiful Gigi - American Eskimo. My friends had to go with my to that Vet. After that I did not came home for 2 weeks. I just could not do it!, I stayed with my friends sleeping on their sofa.

Here is a picture of my beautiful Gigi. That was her last summer & last picture :(.

Oh Lea that is tough.  It is so hard, but sometimes it is for the best.  We have our Dalmatian on the mantel and it is still hard to talk about him. 

They are now saying CAT4 for Laura.  They are going door to door to tell people to GET OUT. Where it will hit, there is a big oil refinery.  That has already been evacuated.  PLEASE be careful.

Katy the toothpicks do seem to help slow down the critters from digging in the pots. Its the best we have come up with so far.  Sis is much better but is definitely not back to where she was in Feb.  People like her pastor keep asking if she is ready to .......... and she says no she just physically cant do like she did before.   It takes all she has to get thru the day doing what she needs to do for herself.  She hops on the mower and mows her yard and her daughters yard and works in daughters garden.  She says its what she needs to do to get stronger but she gets very tired.  She has been anemic for last 4 months.  Her hemoglobin had dropped to 7.1. (she normally runs 14).  They were on the verge of giving her blood but did not.   Her last hemoglobin was almost up to low normal number.  Before this happened she worked a full time job, was constantly doing things at/ for church, volunteered at zoo and Kaufman Center,  did all kinds of yard work and gardening, and just did a lot for others.  She was basically the Energizer Bunny.

recovery is slow, patience is a given in these things  I had to learn to walk all over as my muscles had atrophied and that was not only painful,  but took time too, but determination plays a big part too  she will be ok, just keep on keeping on you know

This storm is no where's near us.  There is a High east of it that is pushing it away from Florida.  Thank you very much, but I will be watching and hoping none of our friends are near where it will hit.

Glad you are home!  I am learning thru my sis how much time and work recoveries are.  Lots of things in play from nutrition, balancing meds, exercise, etc.    Wishing you a speed bump free recovery.

"New Way" of doing business with Amazon..? LOL.

Last Monday I placed 3 small orders at Amazon. Right after I placed those orders I received  3 -order conformations order. And right after (almost at the same time) I received 3- PAYMENT DECLINED, one for each of my orders.  Explanation for all those payment declines was: "that something was wrong with my credit card".  I got little nervous not knowing WHAT is happening with my credit account...?? :(. Few minutes later I called my credit card office and asked WHY those payments were Declined?. I was told that  nothing was Declined, there were NO charges to my account from Amazon that day. I was advice to  place those orders again at Amazon because that did not came thru.

After that call I thought I better wait one or two days before I place thous orders again. Because maybe by that time whatever is wrong with Amazon computers might "fix itself". Two days later all those (3) items were delivered to me and yes, all 3 Delivery Notifications showed up on my computer. I thought that was WEIRD, but as long as everything worked out I was fine with that. GOOD for me I did not reorder those items right after I talked to my credit card office. I probably would got got double order of each! 

On Thursday (same week) I placed two more orders at Amazon. Same thing happened!. Again I got 2 Payment Declined notifications!. This time I just left that, I did not called anyone. Today - Monday I received one item from that order on Thursday. I just checked "my orders" on Amazon, it says the other item will be delivered tomorrow.

I am just wondering if that is happening to me only? or is that happening to any of you?.

I have gotten several phone calls saying they were from the Amazon Security dept.  One was I was being charged aobut $20 in Texas, another was $50 dollars from California, I just got another that I was being charged $1,000 for an apple IPhone.  I immediately called Amazon.  They had no such charges to my accoutnt and they told me they never call on the phone.  They also told me that there are e-mails going out that were not from Amazon.  If I got any e-mails or phone calls, I was to send them to the security dept on the web site.  I checked one phone number that came in and it was listed as the Car wash down the street.  You have to be very careful with these e-mails and phone calls you get.  We changed out pass word and have not gotten one since.  These people have a way of piggybacking on phones and e-mails.
