 JUNE 
"Mine is the Month of Roses; yes, and mine
The Month of Marriages! All pleasant sights
And scents, the fragrance of the blossoming vine,
The foliage of the valleys and the heights.
Mine are the longest days, the loveliest nights;
The mower's scythe makes music to my ear;
I am the mother of all dear delights;
I am the fairest daughter of the year."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I am so sorry the page is not ready. I have been having an issue with joint pain for a couple of days now, making me miserable. So have been taking just one tylenol with codeine 2x a day. It seems to build in me and makes me so sleepy. Both yesterday and today I just keep falling asleep. The this afternoon, around 3:30 I saw the date on my iPad and OMG. I had nothing done for the new month. That woke me up! So immediately got to work. I got the skin done and once again, the new forum icons and the hover color will not change to what I entered. It shows my entrees, but the ones still showing for both are from April yet. I wrote to an Admin and will see if I get an answer. I do have all the info gathered for the page but do not have a border or header made for it. I will do it tomorrow and get it done.
I am glad you got a reprieve for another month with your pacemaker. Though in the long run, I would think getting it over with would be great too!  Mike must be getting a big head from always being right, lol.
I really am sadly lacking in knowing who politicians are. I saw that Kathy was endorsing Bernie Sanders and said she was putting all her hopes in him and again I had no clue who he was. I will have to look them both up as soon as I have time, ha!!
Saying dumb things about sexual fantasies 40 years ago and using it against him is pure foolishness. How old could he have been. Young men often think with their loins and not with their brain and do not watch what comes out of their mouths. Who cares what he said back then. I sure do not.
I know what you mean about being sensitive. My dad used to make fun of me.  All I had to do was hear the Lassie music, Greensleeves, and I would start to cry. When I go to a parade and the Flag color guard goes by, I cry. When I go to a funeral I can do alright until the music starts and then I am a faucet. I do not think I am as sensitive as you though. I was at work when the twin towers were being hit and got glimpses of it on tv as often as I could. I was in shock I think. When I got home I cried and watched and the more I saw, the more I cried. I did not want to go to work but had to. It was so awful. I cry a lot when watching movies and reading books. So am a bit of a cry baby. When Suz and I lived together we used to share the kleenex box when watching movies together. So you are not alone.
This challenge was a color palette challenge and I used the blues in it. There were 5.
Hugs,

Good Morning.   Welcome to June, the month of Brides and Weddings and Yellow Roses.  The picture above was taken on my birthday several years ago, still in the old house, the yellow porcelain and china roses in the Nambe vase are the ones Mike gives me, one each year on our anniversary.  For years they were in a Baccarat Crystal vase until it got too small to hold them all.  Now, coming up on 34 years, they are beginning to crowd the Nambe!   The Real Roses were a birthday gift from my Great Niece, Katie that year.

OhMyGosh, Aimoo is sooo slow it's like it's running in reverse today!  No wonder you are having problems ~~ but problems or not, your new skin is lovely and I look forward to the new page!

I'm sorry you have been hurting.  I have no excuse at all, but I have been a total lazy bum for the past two days.  This morning I have been as productive as Aimoo will let me be (grrrr).  Before tackling Aimoo, I got all my banking done, funds transferred, checkbooks and savings accounts balanced.  Now I have only to tackle the Dread Budget Book and I will be up to date for June.  (Mark this on your calendar ~ the first time in a long time I've been done this early)

Kind of good to know I'm not the only crybaby.  It's kind of embarrassing ~ lol.  

I hadn't seen that Kathy is supporting Bernie Sanders.  I certainly think it's ridiculous to bring up something dumb he said so long ago. I was a bit surprised ~~ usually they only do that kind of crap to Conservatives. ;-)   Sanders is a Socialist, though he runs as an Independent and caucuses with the Democrats.

I still haven't made a choice.  I'm would be more than pleased with several of the candidates, but it's early yet.  I'm not getting too excited.  I fear my top choices won't make it and my bottom choices will ~ so a'la Katie Scarlet O'Hara, I won't think about that today.  I'll think about it tomorrow.   

Beautiful Caron Vinson tag ~~ thank you!!

Have a grand day, and a Happy June!

Loving all your YELLOW!  I love how romantic Mike can be.  The special rose every year says it all.  So wonderful too that he can still get them, so many things are not sold this long.
My problems with the skin and icons is not new, they would not change last month either. The hover color not changing really irritates. I want what I want, lol. 
I took no codeine last night but I still had a tired hangover all day today. Frustrating!  I need to go to bed earlier.  I was supposed to update on my blood sugars today and I did not because I was doing this.  Will do it tomorrow. Wed I go to the Anticoag Clinic for INR, then it can wait for 3 months again and I can just do the lab. I like that better.  
I do the bills on Wed as that is payday for me. Mom actually balanced her own checkbook last month and I did not have to check it. She had actually gotten it right the month before but got herself all turned around. When I did it, it all worked out and agreed with the numbers she had on the statement work sheet. So she has been doing better. I will congratulate you when you complete everything when you say you will, lol.
I really have not decided anything yet as far as who I will back in the election. I am reserving my decision since we are no where near done with those that will be throwing their hat in the ring.
"After all, tomorrow is another day".
  Wonder what Walker is waiting for?  Now he is trying to pass a bill that will allow people who do not have teaching degrees to teach.  As someone else said, do you want someone without a medical degree to operate on you?  Just another way to save money. They would get less wages.  
I seem to be on a Caron Vinson kick.  I used the same scrap kit and tag set to make everything, so I know it all goes together.  
Love and Hugs,

Good Morning!

Looks like another beautiful day.  I'll take it!   Kind of "iffy" sleeping last night ~ I was awake from just after 3AM until around 4:30, but then went back to sleep and slept well.  I won't complain.

Drum Roll please ~~ Yesterday I was actually productive!  Yes, ME.  I got the First of the Month money transfers done and the checkbooks and savings accounts balanced, AND I updated the Dread Budget Book!  On June 1st.  Yes I did!  (lol)

I also did some laundry and a good bit of work with my new PC Live mail Storage Folders.  Mike did most of it for me, but some of it got scrambled so I had a lot of work to do.  There is still more to do.  Apparently there isn't a really good program for exporting or importing Storage folders.   I also got some other paper work done.  I feel righteous.  

Got a call from Shauna asking if she could come another day instead of Friday this time.  Her son broke his nose and apparently (I don't understand this) the appointment to see what to do about it is scheduled for Friday.   Of course I said yes ~ come on Saturday, but I do wonder how the little guy can go for a week with a broken nose untreated.   I probably misunderstood ~ at least I hope so.

smiley35

I see you got the Welcome page done, and as usual it's wonderful.  this is clearly "my" month, with Cat appreciation and adoption, audio book appreciation (we USED to really appreciate audio books when we took driving trips!), Roses, Candy, Cataract Awareness ~~ I am VERY aware of cataracts, though my eye Dr is apparently not.   There is even a week devoted to Mike and Me!  How cool is that?  The Strawberry Moon last night was big and beautiful and shone right through our Man Cave window. ;-)

I do display my bone china and porcelain roses all year long.  Mike has definitely had some challenges finding them, but when he does he always orders several to have them on hand.  That's why they aren't all the same, but I think that makes them look more 'real'. That also makes me feel more confident that he isn't planning to get rid of me in the next few years ~~ lol. 

Hooray for your mom, balancing her checkbook for these two months.  Believe me, I know what a challenge it can be, and it's nice for you not to have to do hers as well as yours.

I sent a donation to Ben Carson and got some metallic bumper stickers which we will put on the cars for now.  I really don't think he will become the candidate, but I'm actually rather surprised (and delighted) to see that he has come this far. I will wait to see who the last man standing is.  I use the term man because I don't think it will be Carly Fiorina, but again I could be surprised.  I would LOVE seeing her debate Hillary.  I think there are several good people on the Conservative side and I'd be happy with many of them ~ but as I said, I don't think my choices will make it past the Primaries.  The Establishment is powerful, and wrong more often than they are right, sadly.

I hadn't seen Walker's new bill.  I can actually see that working under some circumstances, say a real auto mechanic teaching auto mechanics, but certainly not in most scholastic subjects ~ any that I can think of.  Does he propose any restrictions on who can teach what?  Don't think I'd like to learn Chemistry from the Driver's Ed guy ~~ although I guess the Chemistry teacher could also teach Driver's Ed.  ha.

People other than Doctors can perform abortions is some states, California for sure, and people not Board Certified in Plastic Surgery can also perform Plastic Surgery.  Hafta say, the idea of a Podiatrist giving me a new nose or a facelift gives me shivers, but it is legal in some places.  Maybe all?

It just seems like all the protections we used to have in every area are slipping away.  I used to think the FDA protected me from getting bad food or drugs.  Now they seem to be the advertising arm of many food producing industries.  They should work to protect US and not Con Agra, you know?   Ah, don't let me get started. ;-)

I love my new Caron Vinson!  Thank you so much!

Yay, you did it.  You got it all done and then some. Kudos to you!!! You were a busy little beaverette, lol.

  Maybe Shauna's son broke his nose some time ago and it healed wrong and they are looking at fixing it. I would think that if it had been a week it would already be healing. I am sure she will explain more on Sat.

Hey, I only get a day this month, you and Mike have a whole week. Though I think I could fit into the hermit category too, lol. I seem to only go out to Dr. appts and to Louann and Bruce's now and then. And my sister Joanne's occasionally.
But I am ok with that, I guess.  Speaking of Dr's, you will be so proud of me. When I sent in my blood sugar updates today I asked Denise to be my Primary Care Physician and she agreed to, I am so happy. She did tell me that Dr. Fownes is retiring at the end of the year. So I would have needed to get a new doctor one way or another. I am so relieved that she accepted me. My blood sugars are stable and no changes. She does not want them to drop too low. My 7 day average is 158, my 14 day average is 158 and my 30 day average is 159. You can't get more regular than that. I would rather they were under 150 and will still work toward that on my end. We can always back off on insulin.
I cannot see deregulating somethings. I would not want a non Dr. giving me an abortion...not that I ever would have had one. I agree that a mechanic could probably teach that, Fonzi did on Happy Days, lol. But there is also more to being a teacher than just telling them how to do something. A painter could not paint art as they may know nothing about other genres. They also maybe could not even teach someone how to paint if they just do it naturally and never learned to basics that students would need to start with. I will need to look into it more. He really keeps hitting the education system with areas he can cut and save money in. I hate when they cut specialty classes, especially the arts and music. Those subjects may be the only things that speak to some students. I had dreams of being a grade school art teacher. But I was never encouraged and there was no money to be had to help. I never had a job till I got out of high school. I was so shy I did not do well in interviews. Anyway, I do not think it is a good idea at all at this point.  
Tomorrow I will go out to the Anticoag Clinic for my INR. I need to call and confirm my appt time. I am pretty sure it is for 3:45 but for some reason I only wrote down 3. So need to make sure. This tag and group Header was a challenge to make a tag using your favorite CDO artist and either a favorite tut or template.
Hugs,

Good Morning.

We got up to 87 degrees yesterday.  I had planned to have my coffee on the porch this morning, but even though it's supposed to be heading for the low 80s, it's overcast and doesn't look all that inviting.  Oh, and btw, we have rain in the forecast for every day for the rest of this week.  I guess the nice weather was too good to last.  Still, everything is green and lush ~~ as long as we don't get any more hail.

Tonight will be the third and last night for the meatloaf.  It was pretty good if I do say so.  I should make some of the egg muffins for breakfasts for the next several days, and maybe devil some eggs too.  We got some of those shelled, hard boiled eggs, so that couldn't be easier.

Did you see the Strawberry Moon last night?   Here it was big and very definitely rose red!  Just beautiful.  I took some pictures, but what I saw in the sky and what i saw through the lense were definitely not the same.  Still a big pretty full moon, but none of the red tone.  Sad. 

 I'm definitely curious to get the whole and real story about Shauna's son.  I've said a couple of prayers for him too.

I think it's wonderful that you now have "Dr Denise" as your Primary care giver!   You know and are comfortable with her, and more importantly you TRUST her.   Good for you!!   Also ~ good for you keeping your numbers so steady!  

You know, I hadn't even given The Fonze a thought when I said that about having a real mechanic teach auto mechanics ~~ lol.  Or, maybe I did think of him on a deeper level.  Ha!     

My great-nephew-in-law (Katie's hubby Bryan) has a masters degree in landscape architecture and he teaches some classes at the University ~~ because apparently nobody gets a Doctorate in Landscape Architecture.   Teaching is not his full time job, but it sounds like he enjoys the classes he teaches, and without him the "kids" would not be able to take those classes, so clearly there are exceptions.  As a rule, I completely agree with you.  I think true artistic talent is a gift and not taught, but a good teacher can certainly enhance the artists skills, and if I had a gifted kid I wouldn't want them taking Art classes from a House Painter!   Actually, even if my kids weren't "gifted", I would want them to learn the artistic skills from a real Art Teacher.  I'd be one of those angry parents if my kid had less than that!   

Good luck with your INR tomorrow.

Thank you for my BEAUTIFUL tag.  You really ARE an artist, you know.

Have a Happy Day.

 I am determined that . . . .

I did all my financial crap and paid 
this months bills and have slightly 
over $100 left in my checking. If 
I go under that I will get a main-
tenance fee of $7.00 so no spending 
this month. I did manage to write a 
check for Josh's graduation for
 $50, would have liked it to be more 
but he understands.  I am so worried
about him. He has been having awful
anxiety attacks and my sister now
has him in counseling. He had just
taken on too much in his life, does
not know what he wants to do and
is afraid of disappointing anyone.
He did not show up to take out the
trash today but we will say nothing
about it.  Suz stopped in as she had
picked up a prescription for mom so
she did it. I had called Anticoag to 
check my appt time and I was right,
it was 3:45 pm...tomorrow, lol.
More hail? That is such a freaky
thing. We do not get hail very often.
Wish that would stop before it ruins
your plants.  
Meatloaf, gotta love it. I asked mom
to make hamburgers like she did
then we were little that had bread
crumbs in them. It made the ham-
burger go a lot farther. So it is
basically meatloaf patties. We have 
been making those instead of 
burgers.  The other night she made
me a regular burger and it just did
not do it for me. Back to the meat
loaf burgers, lol.
Today's tag challenge was beach and
bikini. I could find no beach in my
folders. I did find Vivian, then I
found the umbrella, shells in various
places, flip flops and then the sun
glasses...all in blues...it was meant
to be.  But I had to create the sky,
sea and beach. I think they turned
out well.

Hello my lovely.

Off to a slow start this morning.  I'm showered, shampoo'd and dressed for the day, and I've had my first cup of coffee, but that's about it.   Right now we're watching "Outnumbered" on Fox.  Four lovely and very bright ladies are outnumbering Marco Rubio as they discuss the news of the day.   I'm surprised that more male candidates haven't taken the 'outnumbered' seat on the show.  Great way to connect with the audience without having to pay for it. ;-)

Late yesterday afternoon we had an intense but rather short rainstorm and as it has about every other time, it HAILED!  Not large hail, thank goodness, but intense and hard driving and it certainly can't be doing any of the plants or trees any good.  I hate it! 

I think we are going to the Bonefish for dinner tonight.  Haven't been there in a while.

Sounds like it's going to be a 'lean' month for you.  That's not any fun.  I haven't had that lately, but I sure remember those days from the past.

I feel bad about Josh.  You know I'm crazy about him, and I want him to have the wonderful life he deserves.  I will pray for him.

Today was our Trash and Recycle Day, too.  We've been taking the cans out the night before but it threatened to tornado last night (we had a watch), so Mike didn't want to take a chance.  He got them out this morning without any help from me.

Good luck with your blood test.  I need to take mine now.  Every two weeks is a bit of a pain ~~ but not nearly as big of a pain as going into the lab every month and having 1-3 people try to get blood from this turnip.  I won't bytch too much about the too frequent finger sticks.  ;-)

I love the idea of your "Meatloaf Burgers".  A dear friend used to do the same kind of thing, and they were delicious!

OOOhh, pretty Summertime Tag!  Thank you!

Have a wonderful day!

Josh graduated today. We are all so proud of him, especially since school has never been easy for him. He has had to deal with crap because of his burns/scars and then because of his Tourettes. He has overcome it all. Now he has new obstacles to overcome, but he will prevail! I know it in my heart.

 Yay, my INR was in range, 2.8, down from 3.6 so I get to go 3 weeks before I recheck. And yes, you had better not bytch about too frequent finger sticks, since I have to do it 4x a day.  If I can do that, then you can do 1 every 2 weeks!!  

Every month is lean. I spend to much and I need to stop. I am making a conscious effort. I was spending a lot of money on licensed tubes and I am cutting that way back. I have a ton I have never used and there is not reason I cannot reuse them. So that is exactly what I am doing. I spent too much at Christmas. I think I can compete with the rest of my family and I cannot. I am ashamed that I learned nothing from the 1st time I did this and need to work on getting rid of the debt.

I have never seen Outnumbered, but I know it is something my mom would not watch. She barely tolerates The View. She does not want to watch anything political. She will vote however I and my sister Diane tell her to. My dad was the head of his union and he always told her how to vote. Then when he was gone she turned to Diane and I and what was best per out unions. I try to talk about the issues with her and she will express some things but ends up saying whatever you think. Ugh!! Have a great day tomorrow.  Love you.
Today's tag is a color palette challenge and had to have at least 3 flowers in it.

Hello   
Oh, HAIL!  Terrible storm last night after we went to bed (to watch TV).  Hard driving rain, and the hail sounded like it was going to break the windows and a couple of times it sounded like baseballs landing on the roof.  Mike got up to look outside, half expecting to see golf balls all over the deck and front sidewalk, but didn't see anything.   Other areas did really get it.  Check out this link to Facebook and the knee high piles of hail folks had to shovel out.

Three tornados hit north of us in Longmont and Berthod, and in Denver a 15 foot sinkhole opened up and swallowed a Police SUV!  Officer was darned lucky to get out with only minor injuries. There was rushing water and a gas pipeline down there.   

In other news, have you heard of our highway shooter, again to the North of us?  Started a while back with people driving and having their car windows broken out.  More recently, a bicycler was shot and killed and now a gentleman walking in his own neighborhood shot and killed.  Finally there is a task force looking for a serial shooter.  That is an area that we have visited periodically, but think we'll stay away for now.  Stay tuned.

On a happier note, Shauna comes tomorrow so I may not post or at least not early.  I expect to be tired but I love the way she cleans.  The house has stayed clean for the whole two weeks with only our needing to wipe the granite counters and the black glass table and vacuum the wood floor.  Oh, and perhaps a swish to the toilets.

Congratulations, Josh!   Well done!

And Congratulations to YOU for getting your INR within range!  Yay!    
I do grumble about things like having to do my INR finger sticks every two weeks, but believe me I KNOW how very lucky I am and I thank God every day.

It's hard to have limited funds and harder to pull yourself out of debt  (been there ~ done that!), but I know you can and will.  

What a pretty, flower filled tag!  I love it. Thank you!

Update:  1)  No sitting out on the porch this morning.
2)  They are mowing in the rain as I speak. Admittedly it's a light rain, but still . . .

Have a lovely day!

Hello Dorothy
I saw your postings on the hail. Unbelievable. I have never seen hail that is shovelable and that's quite the sink hole. All the rain and hail your area is getting it is not wonder sink holes are happening. I hope it stops soon, I am sure I would not appreciate it at all.
A serial killer, that is so scary. I would not want to be anywhere near the area that he is shooting again. Nothing stopping him from moving along into a new area. I pray they catch him fast. It is a big job.
How do Shauna and the cats get on. Has she won ShoGun over yet?
Nothing new here so going to share a few pics from
Josh graduation.
L-R
Back Row: Dave (dad), Jason (lil bro), Brent (big bro) Joanne (mom)
Front Row: Carol (Gma), Joshua, Phyllis (Gma)

This last one is my sister Diane with Josh. Diane and I look a lot alike.  
That's it for me. Love you Lots.
Hugs,

 Oops, I forgot to mention that Dave and Jason are dressed as they are because they had to rush from the high school baseball game. Jason is the pitcher but hurt his hand and could not play but required to be there.  They barely got there in time for the ceremony. In case you did not know, Phyllis is my mom, the Gma on the right, lol.

It's late and I'm pooped so I'll just stop in to say Hi for now.

Shauna was here for 6 hours again today and I think everything has been thoroughly cleaned and it looks great.  I told her that I didn't think we could continue to have her here for as many hours.  It was going to get too expensive. She assured me that now that everything was really cleaned it shouldn't take as long to keep everything up in the future.  I'm sure that's true ~ or at least I hope so.  I really want to keep our every other week schedule instead of having to cut back to once every three or four weeks like our neighbors do.  I think we'll be fine, and I sure do love having the house this clean.  Marcela didn't charge as much, but she didn't clean as deeply either.  

It rained again last night, but no Hail ~~ Hooray!   It's supposed to rain every day.  I think WE'RE having the Monsoon Season.

I LOVE the pictures!  Really great ~ I particularly like the one of Josh "boppin" down the aisle and of course the ones with the family.  Yes, I did know Phyllis was your mom.  I thought the one of Diane WAS you!  You really do look alike. ;-)

Thanks for sharing the pics ~~ and thanks for the darling new tag!

Have a great rest of the day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Hugs,

Dorothy

Nice day today, no rain, yippee! But tomorrow there will be rain again and possibly thunderstorms. I have been waiting for one but they always seem to pass us by. I love a good thunderstorm.
Horrible fire here in Fond du Lac and we lost a historical building. It had once been a Convent. I remember as a girl walking past it and thinking about those that lived inside and what it was like. People are saying it was gorgeous inside with a lot of fantastic wood work. The sisters maintained the building and made the wood shine. But then they combined some of the Convents and the Nun's here moved out of town. The building has been sold a lot over the years with someone always thinking they would make something out of it. But it would have cost too much to convert it to updates rules and regulations and as it was huge the utilities had to be expensive.  Also the rooms (bedrooms) were too small. About 10 years ago they painted the trim outside and fixed it up. A company from California bought it and it has been sitting empty ever since. It has been said that windows were broken and homeless were living in there. There is also talk that this was arson. The place was burning for hours and fully engulfed. Fire depts from all over came to help including Josh's dept and he was there. Have not heard from him how it went.







So very sad.
I wish I could say that our house was that clean. It is not.
It is really dirty since neither mom or I can get down and clean corners and move things to get behind them, etc. It sucks! And it is embarrassing. I would love to live in a new clean home. This one has years of dirt built up. When I moved in I was already on my way to disability and could not pitch in as I would have liked to. Oh well. We are as clean as we can be, lol.  This tag was a ding challenge and the frame is a ding at 350 percent bigger than it was, lol.
Love and Hugs,

Morning.

Looks like it's going to be a pretty day, with only a slight chance of rain this afternoon. We'll see.  We got a short rain in the afternoon yesterday, but no Hail!  Lovely.

After I posted yesterday, I found a serious-to-me issue with Shauna's cleaning.  We have some wooden flowers in a vase that we got in CA years ago. The arrangement is maybe a bit over 3' tall, and the flowers were designed for easy shipping, so the petals and leaves detach and fit into niches or holes.  Putting it together is a major undertaking, and then arranging them in the vase is equally difficult. Once done, you don't mess with it.  Cleaning is just very light dusting, but Shauna took it upon herself to really clean the flowers and I presume the vase.  When I went past the library it looked wrong so I went in to adjust it ~ and saw that it is a total mess.  I won't try to describe it, but all the flowers are in different locations and many petals are loose or off and simply left sitting in the vase.  I was tired and I Exploded!   Mike patronized me with something like a "There, there", and I wanted to take the flowers from the vase and smack him over the head with them.   My next reaction was that I want to just throw them in the trash and put the vase out for the vets.

Mike realized his life was in jeopardy and said he would help fix things ~~ words are cheap, Buddy.  Sometimes he just tells me what he thinks I want to hear, and that increases my desire to smack him.  Anyway, today I'm guessing I will try to fix it.  Maybe. But not today ~ and I'd really like to cry, but I don't have the energy.   

I guess if that's the worst problem I have, I'm pretty darned lucky ~ but it's a good thing you didn't try to point that out to me last night.  LOL  

I told Shauna not to try to scoot the antique walnut table in the Morning Room over to vacuum without taking the Nambe vase of yellow roses off first because it was too heavy and you could hurt the table ~ and that the roses are porcelain and bone china and they could be chipped if they weren't handled delicately.  Never thought to mention the wood flowers.  She thoroughly cleaned the Morning room, moving all the furniture EXCEPT that table, and cleaning the baseboards in addition to vacuuming so I was really pleased ~~ now I need to go and check out the roses!  I didn't examine them last night.  

 Marcela kept things up, bathrooms cleaned, things vacuumed and dusted but when I suggested she come back (and be paid separately for it) to do a "Spring Cleaning", she didn't understand what I wanted so I dropped it.  It was cleaner than I can do now (which doesn't say much) so I was glad to have her, but not nearly as clean as I wanted it to be.  Now the house really is "deep cleaned" like my Mom would have done it (though she wouldn't have messed up my flower arrangement!).  If Shauna does a "normal" cleaning now and only deep cleans individual things from time to time, we should be able to afford her.    As I said, Sue has her come every three weeks, and Sherri has Madeline (the gal we almost had who charges the same as Shauna) come once a month.  I'm sure they do more cleaning than we do in between visits, but I really like having the every other week cleaning so I'd like to keep that if we can.  On the alternate weeks I vacuum the wood floors and the traffic areas of the carpet and swish out the toilets, but I don't clean the shower or go over the door jams or baseboards and curtains and such.  Of course we wipe down the granite counters and the glass kitchen table 'as needed', so it doesn't look awful in between her visits ~~~ unless someone drops in.  Then inevitably, the floors spout cat hair and the guest bath needs cleaning and there are dishes in the sink!  Guaranteed!   Have I mentioned that I can't win?!

I've been worried about the poor new Dahlias getting clobbered with all the hail, but yesterday while we were having our coffee on the porch, we saw that they have buds!  I think one will bloom today or tomorrow!  ;-)

There was another shooting, this time in Longmont which isn't far from us and a favorite breakfast location, and for a while it was thought to be the work of the Random Shooter.  Now they are saying it isn't related and they have the shooter in custody.  Honestly, we're gonna be afraid to poke our noses out of the house pretty soon!

I'll be glad to share some of our rain with you.  ;-)

OhMyGosh, how awful was the fire!  I'm glad no one got hurt, but what a shame to lose that beautiful and historical building.  I have to admit, arson flitted through my mind right away.  I may watch too much TV, but if it couldn't be renovated for a profit, you do wonder.  What a shame.  Those pictures are amazing!

Thank you for my Mystical Magical tag!  Really pretty!

Have a happy day.
