"JUNE"
"Now summer is in flower and natures hum
Is never silent round her sultry bloom
Insects as small as dust are never done
Wi' glittering dance and reeling in the sun
And green woodfly and blossom haunting bee
Are never weary of the melody
Round field hedge now flowers in full glory twine
Large bindweed bells wild hop and streaked woodbine
That lift athirst their slender throated flowers
Agape for dew falls and for honey showers
These round each bush in sweet disorder run
And spread their wild hues to the sultry sun.

Whew, got it all done.  Maybe I should have

 lightened the rose background or made the

roses smaller.  But it is ok, so not messing

with it.  Beautiful day here is WI, but I did

not get out on the porch as I was busy making

the page and skin.  Decided to go ahead with

the baseball theme.  I managed 5 1/2 hours

of Cpap, so I am happy.  I had to undo to get

up for a nature call and just went back to

sleep without it.  So, nothing new to share.

No, wait.  I do have something to share...

a tag, lol.

Hugs,

Hello!   Welcome to June!    I thought of June Weddings when I made our June "skin", and of course I thought of my own wedding almost 33 years ago, when I carried yellow roses.  How fun that you thought of roses, too. Of course that IS the June flower. Your Pink and white skin with the sweet kitten is just lovely.

Barb has taken over the monthly Welcome Page in TnT, so all I have to do is the monthly skin.  You do BOTH, and you do them beautifully.   I love the baseball theme, too ~ and of course I especially love MY new tag!  Thank you!!!

I see you recognized Mike and Me in June's Week Three Special Events.   We are honored.

I really can't take part in Adpot a Cat Week, but I can and will make a contribution to the Denver Dumb Friends (no kill shelter) and to the ASPCA and hope all those needy cats find good and loving homes. (Dogs, too, but since this is Adopt a CAT month . . . )   As for it being Pet Appreciation week (isn't every week?) I'm appreciating Shogun by letting him snooze under the covers on my foot!  There is no doubt that Christy will spend her time on my lap as soon as I sit down in the Man Cave or Morning Room.

I hadn't thought of having to undo the CPAP to answer the call of nature during the night.  For me lately that would be at least a couple of times.  I hope it isn't too hard to get re-attached.  5 1/2 hours sounds like an excellent start!!

.

I did get some laundry folded and a VERY few other things done yesterday.  I have NO motivation!   Today we're going to lunch in Lyons CO at the Black Bear Inn.  It's a lovely German Restaurant about an hour away, and we've been going there since we moved here.  The owner/chef is wonderful, and his charming wife is the hostess and manager.  They sold it several years ago so they could retire, but the man who bought it, while he bought the recipes, was not the chef that Hans is.  We went ONCE, and never went back while he owned it. Then Hans and Annalise took it over again, leaving it on the market as they still hope to retire.

Then the floods came a year ago, and everything in Lyons and so many surrounding communities was damaged.  The Inn, like so many other businesses, closed.  Recently they have reopened, on weekends only with a more limited menu, and they are trying to rebuild their business.  My heart goes out to them.  They obviously can't sell until they have the business reestablished.  It has to be so hard for them.   Anyway, we are going to try and support them AND to have a lovely meal this afternoon.

Have a lovely day.

Hot and humid...85 and rain.  I cannot breathe....even with O2 on
my O2 sat is running 90-92.  Ugh, I hate it.  I did wear my Cpap for
6.1 hours last night.  Again, I took it off to go to the BR around 7:30.
I thought I might sleep a bit more without it by my neighbor started shoveling gravel right outside my window at 8 so I got up.  I did the dishes and cleaned the kitchen.  Then had breakfast.  The rest of the day has been lazy.  Mom spent time outside buy it was too nasty for
me.  I have no motivation today at all.
Yesterday, along with changing Cuppa over I also completed another challenge in my group.  This was a checklist challenge...you had to use at least one mask, brush, built in filter and one texture or opacity effect.  I used 2 masks and all the rest.  I like it.  There is one for you Dorothy.  I got your back, lol.
Hugs,

RE:WELCOME TO JUNE
(Date Posted:06/02/2014 7:43 AM)


Today's Message is brought to you by the Number 16 and the letter P.  Take a second to say a prayer for Barb's next blood test to show she is at 16% (or better).

It looks like it's going to be another lovely day.  Currently 57, but heading for the low 80s.  Unfortunately, it's only going to be 67 - 70 when I would like to go for coffee on the porch.  Since our porch is quite shaded, that's a bit too cool for me.  If we had the sun on our backs, it would be warm.  

The petunias are really coming out.  I think we need to move the pots closer to the front and driveway so they are all more visable.  The one around the corner looks great when you drive up from the left, but you don't see it from the right OR just sitting on the deck.  That means walking on the rock, of course, so we'll see.

I wish I'd gotten a picture of the Potentilla a few days ago.  Both are fully in bloom (ours are white blossoms) but now they are having a growth spurt so they are no longer perfectly rounded bushes, but wild looking things with long branches.  Phooey.

We did go to the Black Bear Inn in Lyons yesterday.  It was about an hour long drive each way, and lovely.  Their menu is much smaller than it had been, but still very good.  Hans, the Master Chef had a stroke when they sold it a few years ago.  The man who took it over wasn't anywhere near the cook Hans was, and they had to take the restaurant back.  It's been on the market since ~ until the floods.  Their daughter is now the chef, and she does not have the amazing skills her father had, but the food was still good.

We had the chance to have a long visit with Analise and she showed us pictures of the flood and flood damage.   Everything in this direction had been closed right after the floods, and when the roads opened we decided not to come and look.  They needed worker bees, folks to clear the roads and the debris, no looky-loos, so we didn't really know how bad it had been.  The Black Bear is NOT in the Flood Plain so they didn't have flood insurance and FEMA wouldn't help businesses, so all the repairs and work that had to be done were on their own, and of course with no income coming in to pay for it.  Even though the food isn't quite as good as it had been, we've decided to try to go at least once a month to support them as best we can.

They had to replace all the carpeting and flooring and much of the lower paneling.  Their lovely furniture was ruined and had to be replaced.  They were locked out and yet the windows had to be left open because of the mold ~ I'd have been sick worrying about their lovely antiques.  They did much of the work of ripping out the carpet and lower paneling themselves, and then a church group came to help them.  I know I'd have felt like just walking away, but they have been there for 38 years and The Black Bear IS their retirement.  So very sad.

Lou Ann, I decided to leave the cryptic Sesame Street-esque message at the top in this posting, to give you a chance to add your prayers for Barb (Noni2) if you wish.  Shock and awe, she was diagnosed with kidney failure several months ago and they are making all preparations to have her go on permanent dialysis.  I hate the thought of that for her so much.  She's dealing very well with it, and as accepting as a person can be, but . . .    Anyway, her kidney function is at 15% and has surprised her kidney Dr by remaining there.  They feel dialysis is inevitable, but of course they aren't taking into account the power of prayer.  It would be awesome and totally unexpected if she could get to 20%, so that's what our Number 16 is about. The letter P is for Prayer, of course. Baby steps. Perhaps very unlikely, but you aren't likely to "get" if you don't even ask, right?

Oooh, another LOVELY tag!  Thank you so much!!  I am not doing any PSP, or only adding a name to a tag now, and you are doing all of these wonderful challenges and learning so much!!

Good for you wearing your CPAP for 6 hours and then getting up and getting so much work done!  The heat and humidity, on the other hand ~ not so good!  I really hate humidity a lot.  The dryness in Colorado causes some other problems, but i can live with them a lot more cheerfully than with humidity.

Thanks again for the tag ~~ it really is lovely!

  

Nothing planned today except a couple of overdue letters and I should transfer money between accounts since today is payday.

Dorothy, I definitely will include Barb in my prayers.  I am a total believer in miracles.  They happen every day, so why not for Barb?  God is Great!

It was unbelievably humid here today and we had heavy rains...there were waves running off of roofs.  I could not work in my room as I just was too uncomfortable.  Hoping tomorrow since it is not supposed to rain till after midnight.  At least enough to get my air conditioner in place, then I can run it and work.  I have had my fan blowing on me all day to keep me as cool as possible.  I do not think I am going to survive this summer.  Usually do not have to deal with this weather till July.  I hate it.
I remember when we had the bad flooding.  There were church groups that came to help.  Jordan spent a week with one.  He can be wonderful at times... but they are few and far between.  I am glad you are going to make the effort to help out the restaurant by frequenting it monthly.  That is really nice.  I feel for them and it will be hard to get back their clientele after all that had happened.  I will add a prayer for them.  
Tomorrow is payday. so it is bill paying time.  That will be the first thing on my list and then working in my bedroom.
Got to go get something to drink...I am dying of thirst. lol
Have a great day tomorrow.
Hugs,

smiley15

Good Morning

It looks like another beautiful day.  We're heading for 90 degrees!   I think this warrants some time outside, don't you?  We're expecting delivery of our new cushions for the Resin Rockers on the back deck, and also 2 step stools that I hope will work as foot rests with the  outdoor furniture.

Mike did borrow my walker and moved the pots of petunias around and I like the look much better, plus the one on the end will get water from our sprinkler system so we don't have to worry about watering ~~~ assuming the rain ever stops.

Ah, the new Tv "Season" has begun and it started with a bang.  We postponed watching "24" until today so we could watch the first episode of Longmeier.  They had an "-athon" last week and I wish we had watched.  The first episode took up immediately after the last episode last season.  I hadn't remembered how it ended, and it was really exciting.  If the whole season is going to be like this, we're in for quite a ride.

Then the 7th Season of Murdoch Mysteries was released yesterday ~~ 18 episodes ~~ but only on Acorn.  Luckily for us, we have Acorn.  This is such a wonderful series.

Once again, I didn't accomplish nearly as much as I should have.  Maybe today?  Maybe . . . not.  

smiley15

Thank you for adding your prayers for Barb.  I'll let her know.  I know that there have been times in the past when I couldn't believe my prayers for myself were being heard or would be answered, but I knew the prayers of others would be.  Barb is as positive as a person can be under the circumstances, but knowing that we 'have her back' has to help.

I am so frustrated by not knowing what is happening or what has happened with Mary Ann.  How can you know how to pray or what to do?  How the heck can we find out?!

Oooh, how  I hate humidity!  There are problems with the dryness in Colorado, but believe me I can live with them a whole lot better than with the humidity.  How does it affect your breathing problems?  I can see some positive of inhaling moisture rather than extremely dry air, but I can see some negatives too.  

I hope someone will help you get your AC installed soon so you can escape when you have to.

We're having new flooding issues in a different location.  The Poudre River has overflowed it's banks and homes in Greeley are flooded.  Not many have flood insurance because it's quite expensive and when you aren't in a Flood Plain you don't realize you could experience a flood.  It's so sad.

I didn't get money's transferred yesterday, so that's on my docket for today, too, and then in a few days the dread Budget Book.  

Have a great day, and stay cool!

Beautiful day here.  High was 75 and humidity was low.  Just wonderful.  I did pay the bills, well, most of them.  I have not
tackled my Agnesian bills.  I suppose I should.  I dread it.  I am
having problems stretching the budget enough.  Heaven help me.
Any more medical devices to pay for and I will be in deep doodoo.
Well, shame on you!!  You know if you make a new arrangement then we need new pictures of what it looks like.  I cannot believe you did not post any.  
I now pray for Barb when I pray for Mary Ann.  That way I remember.  I am going to try writing a letter to the address that I think might be hers...or at least a family members.  I will give them my email and hope they get back to us.  I would send my phone number but if it is not her address or family I do not want to give it to strangers.  We will find a way.
I saw the pictures you posted of the flooding.  So many weather disasters.  Seems to me they are more often and more violent.  Some day the world is just going to implode or explode.  We are not doing enough to protect then environment.  I wish I was brilliant of rich so that I could do something.  
I used this border since I did a tut in red, white and blue.
Have a great day.
Hugs,

And a cheery Good Morning and Happy Hump Day to you all!  

We're set for another beautiful day here, heading for the low 80s.  Yesterday we reached 91 and it wasn't as pleasant.  Fairly windy, too, though not those awful damaging winds.   Tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to drop to a high in the 70s and rain.  We'll see.  

We're going to the Bonefish for dinner tonight.  They have some kind of a Lobster Special Mike wants to try. Then tomorrow morning ~ oh Joy ~ I have an appointment with the Periodontist.  

We got both the outdoor cushions and the "foot stools" last night.  I think the cushions will work fine on those resin rockers.  You'd think with all the padding I have added lately I wouldn't need a cushion, but I do.  Ha.  The step stools are a little bit too high, but they will work too and they don't look bad.  They are dark gray so they won't stand out too bad (I hope).   We have an outdoor chest ordered that we'll be able to leave on the deck and put the cushions in when we're not using them.  I'd leave them out all the time, but the wind can be so bad they'd probably go visiting the neighbors if left unattended.  

Oooh, another beautiful present!  Thank you so much!  I'm spoiled rotten, and I love it!

I know we both wrote to Mary Ann's old email address, the one her sister used to contact annnieM, and I wrote to the one I had for Anne.  I'm at a loss.  

I didn't get my monies transferred yesterday either.  We sat outside for a while in the morning, and then when Mike went in I stayed and read.  I'm really enjoying the Anne Hillerman.  When I came back inside, all that fresh air made me sleepy.  I'm convinced that fresh air can not be good for a person ~ LOL.

My friend in Omaha has been sharing about the storms they had there last night and all the hail damage that was done.  I saw a few pictures ~ terrible.

I'm glad your weather was so much nicer than it has been.
Have a happy day!

Good Morning Glory.

I hope you're feeling better now.

Just a quick note tonight because, lucky me, I have an appointment with the Periodontist this morning.   I'll be back later to check in with you.

Ok.  I'm back.  Busy day!   I had to do my blood test before we left (2.1, within range).  Then when I got to the Peridontist's office, she didn't have my appointment in the book.  I just talked to her on Tuesday!  If I'd had to leave and come back another time, I'd have pitched a fit!  They worked me in, so all was well.  I got a different hygienist who didn't talk quite as much but who did a Michelle Obama impersonation, telling me all about what she had her kids and husband eating.  It was hard to get him to give up cheese on his broccoli, but now he likes it with just lemon.  I'm so glad.   She also caused a bit of pain, not too much, but because she's doing the Michelle routine, I'm grading her.

I can't tell you how I miss my original Dr and my original hygienist "No Pain Elaine'!  They also moved their location to a much more inconvenient spot last year. I may have to check with my dentist and see if I can't find someone in a better location (and if I happen to get folks I am happier with, that will be a bonus).    My original Dr and Elaine were always so positive.  I almost enjoyed coming.  Now it's as if they are disappointed that they can't find anything wrong, but they still have a doom and gloom attitude.

Ok, Enuf!  lol    After we left we deposited a check and got some cash and then mailed Jack's second birthday gift.  

We got home just as they were delivering DJ's latest Wild Hair (or is that Wild Hare?) ~~ a six foot tall Laura Ashley bamboo tree to put in the guest bath Shower!    That bathroom is only used for toilet and hand washing and the shower just sits there looking useless, sooooooo . . . . . .

 

but wait!  There's more.  A Boston Fern is being delivered tomorrow and it will sit on the shower bench.  LOL  I know.  I'm a wild woman.  Fortunately for me, Mike likes it.  Ha.

So glad that no one missed me or asked how I am...but

I will tell you anyway.  I suck.  I am better, but not what 

I would call well, or as well as I get.  I am pretty sure I

have cellulitis.  But since I am on antibiotics it will eventually

clear.  It is on my stomach and I have had it there once before.

But that was way back when I was having my bone marrow 

transplant and they did not know what it was.  I did and my

family doctor agreed with me.  This is the same and it takes

the wind out of my sails.

I was managing with the Cpap but often felt like I could not


breath.  I got a couple breath right strips in the mail as samples.

OMG, it was wonderful.  I had no trouble breathing and the Cpap   
registered usage as 7.2 hours and that was my whole sleeping

period.  So now I will have to find out how much those strips cost

and I hope they are not expensive as they are not reusable.

Though I am going to try to reuse last nights and see if it will

work, but they say not to.  They say a lot of things but we know 

how that goes.  Paid more bills today...St Agony and their 

Shoppe.  I hate that I cannot pay the Shoppe on-line.  It is the 

only bill I have to mail and I always forget.  I made it all out and

gave it to mom since she seems to mail PCH every day, lol.

That's it for me. I am shot.  OBTW, I love your use of your

shower.  In a pinch you can just turn the shower on to water 

them, lol.

That's not fair, Lou Ann.  I did say I hoped you were feeling better in my first post.  I just didn't see the need to repeat it in my back-to-back post.

I'm really not sure what cellulitis is, but I will look it up.

I'm glad you were able to use the CPAP all night, and it helped.   I have used the Breath Right strips before.  I have a slight blockage so it's hard to breath unless I'm sleeping on my left side, and that gets old.  They really do help ~~ but after a while I noticed that my nose was getting wider!  lol   I haven't used them in a while.  Maybe I'll start again.

Today is National Donut Day.  If you use your imagination, these cookies look kind of like donuts, don't they?  The kind without the holes?  smiley62

Yesterday we got a few light showers, but no downpour.  Maybe, just maybe, there is a chance that our lawnmowers can mow dry grass and do a much better job of it that they have the last two weeks.    The wildest thing yesterday was that since it was cooler I decided to wait on the porch for the mail to be delivered, when it started to HAIL!   No rain, just Hail!  I've never seen that happen before.  It was just little pea sized hail, but still . .   Then later it did rain a bit.  I wasn't aware of any rain overnight.   Our weather folk rarely get it right ~ ha.

Mike has an appointment with the Eye Dr to check his cataracts this morning, and then we are planning to go out for lunch.  If the weather folk are right, it should rain much of the weekend, so this will be a chance to get out for a bit before then.

Feel better and have a Fabulous Friday.

Dorothy, I apologize for being childish and stupid and I do not know how

I missed the earlier one.  Though I had read it earlier and then came back

later to post and read the other.  I think in my mind it was a new day.  Just 

silly.  Cellulitis is a skin infection.  I used to get it on my left lower leg a lot

before the cancer....it was that that led to the discovery that I had cancer.

It is usually red, hot skin, temp, and painful.  I have all but the temp but 

because I am on a prophylactic antibiotic it is probably a milder case.

Went for INR today.  2.2, within range so recheck 4 weeks.  Just wish I was

more in the middle, lol.  Mom had to have her port flushed so we had appts

synchronized, l finished was ahead of her as it took them 3 tries to hit

the port.  We swung by A&W to pick up supper.  YUM!!!  It was a beautiful

day.  A bit too hot this afternoon, the beautiful this evening and I sat out

on the porch for a while.

I need your mailing address.  I am sending you something and I will not say

what as I want it to be a surprise.  I know I have an addy for you on the list

that annnieM compiled for the group, but I want to make sure it is the right

one.  I should send annnieM a email asking what is up????

I am so unmotivated to do anything.  I need someone to use an electric

cowpoke on me. 

Goodnight!  I have to nebulize and then off to bed.

Hugs.
