I like juggy better than muggy, Barbara. That's a great weather report. Yeah, my muscles are still hurting from all that work! Yep, I talk to Chocolate, animals I see in the yard, anything. My neighbors are kinda close, but I don't care what they think.

I bet if he can't fix Lexi that he will do you good, Thel. Oh good, you got the free records link. We knew it had to be there. Oh my engine light was OFF this afternoon. That thing is finicky. Keeps going on and off. Still taking it in to get checked and straightened up. I wouldn't let her know where I lived either. Good idea Pastor Vic had. Kegan is so cute with his certificate! I say you still wear a life jacket in the boat. Everyone, always. Grandaddy taught that to me,and it just makes sense. Just wear the thing! 

It really as been a busy two months for you, Mary Alice! It's ok that you haven't gotten anything done. 

OOOHHhhhh that looks delicious, Thel! 

Wow, you win the heat today, Carol Ann! It was about 90 here today. 

Sit and sew was fun. No sewing done here. I figured out what I wanted to do for borders on a Halloween quilt. then we went to lunch, and after, I got the blocks cut. That's it! We had so much fun, talking and goofing off. There weren't many people there, probably less than half the normal. Everyone had something or other. It is summer, though. I got an appointment for DGS1 at the same time as mine. I'm scared. I told him to not ignore things like that, it can mess lots of stuff up. I would even go get his car, and swap with mine, then take his to the dealership to get it figured out. But I didn't even know about it! Well, we will talk again tomorrow, I hope it's not that bad.

Well, it could be worse, Mary Alice!  It's 107 outside my house right now.  I think I'm burning big $$$ running the air conditioning, but my DH and I would be melting otherwise!  

Thel, your cupcake parfait sounds just wonderful right now.  I'll send my broom to your house to pick one up!

How is Peanut getting along with the fur herd?  Do you know when she is leaving yet?  Your pick-up plans with Peanut's mama sound very sensible to me, when and if they happen; she should not know when you live!  Protect yourself first!

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

You got ice in the freezer Mary Alice.  Make a watermelon slushie while you wait for the parfait to arrive.   

Bless your heart for all you do for mom and I bet she doesn't even have a clue how hard you work to keep her life balanced.  

My garden sure is looking good.  I'm even getting to harvest lettuce and herbs already; not a lot but little bits.  it's filling in nicely.  

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

Deal Thel!  I'm all  of out ice cream over here!  It's 95 and I need a cool down!

Well geez, just finally finished making mom's bed.  She had hemorrhoid issues last night.  That being said, after irrigating outside, I had to come in and do all her bedding and pjs.  That was my afternoon. 

I did call the dealer and I'm to take my truck in at 8:30-9:00am to check it out.  I figured I have Stitches in Bloom class from 9:30-12:00, and the last class, Stitcher's Garden is from 1-4, so I'll have their courtesy shuttle drive mom and me to the class, and hopefully they'll be done by noon so we can get picked up and go eat out.  Hmmm, maybe I should pack us a lunch just in case??

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

Emmm,  I'd take some watermelon Mary Alice.   I'll trade you.  I made a chocolate cupcake parfait with caramel topping for a treat.  Emm was it good!   

I even included a spoon for you !

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

Well, my long post disappeared.  Geeze. 

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

So happy for Keagan and his swimming skills!  You never know when you might need to swim.

I worked on the yard last night and today.  I'm tired.  Currently doing mom's laundry.  Thought while I work on that I could also change her bed sheets and do her laundry.  But part of me doesn't feel like doing a thing. 

Kim that's crazy!  If you're such a great customer they should be doing everything they can to keep you happy, not make you pay more.  That's whacked. 

We've had a couple of roaming pit bulls here.  The neighbors 4 German Shepard's go crazy when they are around.  I think they are trying to get the chickens of some neighbor in that area.  I've seen Animal Control going around, so she probably called them.  

Awe poor Reggie!  He must be miserable with that sinus stuff.  

I need to get a grocery list started.  But I have lots of food in the freezer, so I may just work out of that.  Today I shared my big watermelon with my neighbor.  Too much for me, and mom would rather eat cantaloupe.  Perhaps I should start buying those containers of pre-sliced fruits. 

Good  idea at taking that quilt a section at a time.  Easier for you as well.  

Well I guess I'd best move.  I think mom's comforter is done drying and it's time to put the mattress pad in the dryer now.  Then I can get her bed made up for tonight.

Tomorrow is quilt class, and I've NOTHING to show for this month.  Oh well, life happened.  It's been a very busy 2 months!

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury yesterday

Definitely an important skill to have. Good job Kegan!!

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

It's an overcast dreary day today, but that's fine.  Beats any major heat as far as I'm concerned.  

Yah Barbara.  I already know more than enough about the craziness in my family.  I'm not sure I'm ready for anymore at this stage in life.   

Good thing no predators saw the open chicken coop Kim.  It's good you still have a full house.  That's insane about the calendar and that curt customer service rep.  Geeze, even if that's the policy she could have been more diplomatic about it.  

I know the used car dealer I bought the car from had no clue of it's problem, but the original owner to sold it to the auction might have.  I don't think Ron would be putting so much effort trying to fix it and giving me a loaner car all this time if he was guilty of selling me a 'bad car'.  

I finally got a link to the local court records FREE Froggie.  Yup, not gonna get trapped in one of those loops for a month fee.  

I haven't made the cornbread yet.  I think I'm gonna add cheese and diced jalapeños to some of it.    Emm, that'd be good.  Gonna see if Joe wants some too.  

Goodness!  Those car problems are not fun are they Froggie.  That could be a lot of damage with hitting a curb.  I hope his car isn't too bad off.  And your's better be easy to fix too.  

WOW, that's a lot of driving Barbara.  I hope Reggie appreciates it.  He needs to give you extra cuddles as payment.    Yah, I'm always talking when I'm outside.  Lucky for me, if anyone sees me they can figure I'm talking to my furr babies.  

I was wondering what a juggy day was, but I think I'm having one of those here too.  

Pastor Vic visited the jail last evening.  He talked to Peanuts mom, according to her, she's being released tomorrow.  Still going with the flow on how to get her baby back to her.  It'll all flow around whether she has transportation or not.   I don't want her to know where I live, I don't wanna go to the house of a total stranger whose reason for being in jail I don't know.   If she drives the plan is to meet at the church campus (pastors idea). 

Kegan is growing up so fast.  He graduated from his swimming school.  Next stage will apparently be in the pool without mama there.   They spend A LOT of time boating.  Seems he's quite comfortable being in the water, jumping off the boat ladder etc.  I think they're so smart, no fear of the water and knowing how to swim may save his life some day.  

Comment by Rita Crofoot yesterday

Dang it Barbara, you found and fixed your own mess up, I was going to have some fun with that.

Finn has a captioncall, phone (types as they speak often pretty funny. Yesterday as I was reading it someone was fixing it has I watched.
