Yes, the loss of the Convent is such a tragic end for such a wonderful old building. There is a lot of talk about Arson going around since the company that owns it has had it for sale for a long time with no takers. It is a shame that the city did not take it on and then get assistance from the State Historical Society to restore it.  I thought it would make a great Crafters/Artist Mall. Since the bedrooms were small they would have worked great for each crafter to have their own room to display their crafts/art for sale. The living room could have been a common area and have tables for eating and the kitchen could have been for making wonderful desserts and selling them. There was probably a dining room that could have been used too. I have never been in the building.

Shauna probably did not realize that the wooden flowers came apart when she tried cleaning it. Especially since you warned her about the roses but not them. She maybe should have asked if you wanted them cleaned and at the same time, knowing how deep she cleans, you should have told her "hands off". I am being the voice of reason since you cannot bop me with those flowers, lol.

We did not get the rain we were supposed to get either and no thunderstorms. So disappointing. I got to over 80 out today, but it was not bad in here at all. I actually did not believe mom when she told me that. I had to look on my Weather Bug and at 7:30pm it was 79 so it had to be right. If it always felt this comfortable inside then I would not mind 80 so much!

I would not be quick to believe that the new shooting is not related to the others. They maybe just do not want more areas worrying and people getting alarmed and everyone staying home not going out and businesses/city losing money in sales, etc. I watch too many Criminal Minds, lol.

Happy yo hear that the dahlia's are budding and have so far survived the hail. Hopefully there will be no more of it. It is just too freakish the amount of hail you all have been getting.

I have nothing on my schedule this week and that makes me happy. I was supposed to see Denise this week but rescheduled because Louann has a lot on her plate lately and I did not want her worrying about getting me to the doctor. I will tell you all about that tomorrow as I just realised I have not told you what was going on. But got all great news today and I am a happy camper.

This tag was made from a freebie scrap challenge. We had 2 creators to choose from. Chat with you tomorrow and love you lots.

Hugs,

Good Morning  
I think we are going to have pretty days with rainy afternoons forever.  As long as those rainy afternoons don't include hail, that's fine with me! It's supposed to be 80 today and 86 tomorrow!    We had our coffee on the porch yesterday and I'm sure all that fresh air isn't good for a person.  I just couldn't wake up this morning ~~ and I snoozed through some of our TV viewing last night, too.  When it rained in the afternoon it was a real gully washer, rain going sideways and it looked like a hurricane, but after it was done there was no damage and everything looked and smelled fresh.  In other parts of the Metro area, they had flooding!  I shared some images on Facebook.  We've been lucky.   

Having coffee now and watching Bill O'Reilly's "Legends and Lies", a series of shows about true stories behind the famous Old West heros we all grew up with.  Today, it's the Real Life Lone Ranger, very likely a fellow named Bass Reeves.  While he didn't wear a black mask, he WAS in fact a black man!  Who knew?  He rode a white horse and had Indian sidekicks and really was a a noble character, a law man who pretty much always got his man.  Interesting stories.  He was a black lawman who was so much more successful than his white counterparts, but in the end, the laws of the country he had fought for turned against him.  Jim Crow was enacted had he wasn't allowed to enjoy the place in history he had won.  Until now, perhaps, thanks to that awful Bill O'Reilly. (ha)

Next time: Butch Cassidy.

Mike said he wants to make corned beef hash and eggs for breakfast and I'm certainly not complaining!  ;-)
 
No, unfortunately the shooter they have in custody for the most recent shooting is not the one who has been doing all the "Serial shooting".  That scary character is still out there.   I can see us ending up in a "ripped from the headlines" episode of Criminal Minds or Law and Order.  ;-)

Yeah, I'm no longer ballistic about the wood flowers, though I hesitate to start fixing them.  It's going to be a job!   Of course I wish I had mentioned the wood flowers to Shauna 'up front'.  It didn't occur to me.   Once she saw that they were coming apart, Shauna should have talked to me and asked "Should I keep cleaning or leave them alone?"   I WILL be talking to her when she comes next time, but I'll be calm and almost pleasant.  (ha)

Our week has very little scheduled either, and like you, I like that.  We've been over-scheduled for quite a while.  Ahhhhh.   I'll be anxious to hear about LouAnn and her family.

Great patriotic tag for the upcoming patriotic holidays.  Thank you!

Have a good one!

Raining today and it looked like we would get some storms, but they must have passed us by. Oh well, I will just keep waiting for a Thunderstorm.  

I started a book last night and finished it today. It must not have been too long. It was pretty good. Fantasy, I love it. I can really get lost in it.

I looked at my schedule and I have nothing next week either. Woo Hoo.  Mom and Diane still do not have dates set for their trip. They had, but that is up in the air because Joanne had set Josh's Graduation Party for June 26th, but he went an booked a gig for that night.  So now they are trying to find another date for it and mom and Diane want to see what they will pick to schedule the trip around that.  The weekend for the reunion in Kentucky is set for July 16-20 so they will go to Arkansas either before or after that.

So, on to the Fauska's.  For over a year now Bruce has been experiencing seizures. Not the body jerking kind but the spacing out kind.  Like one time he made his lunch and when Louann cam home after 3 she found it in the kitchen.  He had spaced out and did not even recall not eating it.  He thought he had had his lunch.  Another time he was driving and could not remember where he was going or what he was doing.  He drove around and after driving by his church for the 3rd time, he remembered that was where he was going.  He has lost hours in his day and not know what went on.  So he saw local doctor who said he had epilepsy and put him on meds. But this did not help a lot.  It was making it hard to do his job and he was stressed, so informed the company that he would no longer be doing their catalog, but could do lesser projects for them.  The catalog took the whole year.  They got angry and said they did not think that would work out, but they would see if in the fall they could offer him something.  Then another person from the company said to him we could still use you working for us and he told her what the other had said and she said we will see about that.  I told you that Bruce was semi retired now.  He is going to do photography, just not sure how much. Anyway, he decided to go higher and went to see a special team at Froedtert, where I had my bone marrow transplant, mom had her last high risk heart surgery and where Josh went when he was burned.  So last week Mon. he was admitted for at the least 5 days and during that time he would have to stay in bed.  He would have over 50 attachments to his head to monitor all sources during a seizure.  They would be trying to induce seizures different ways.  Flashing lights, stationary bike and I cannot remember what all else, lol. So Bruce did not get out till today. He was only having little seizures and not really recordable ones.  So the results were that most of Bruce's seizures were not caused by epilepsy, they were stress induced.  Psychogenic seizures are a physical reaction to stress and not emotional.  While it can be just as debilitating it is easier to treat.  A big part is eliminating the stress, which Bruce has already done.  So hi hopes of it all ending.  That is why I changed my appt.  Would not have had to but better safe than sorry.

Ok, nothing more to talk about, lol.  I wish I lived near to you as I love fixing things like your flowers. I like the challenge.

Tag was another scrap challenge. Chat with you tomorrow. Love you lots.

Hugs,

Good Morning.

Not a lot going on here.  I have some laundry that needs folding ~ how exciting.  I won't complain.  Usually "excitement" isn't something I enjoy all that much ~ laugh.

I'm so sorry to hear about the trouble Bruce has been having.  My immediate thought was some form of Dementia, so it's good to know that it is a form of epilepsy, as bad as that sounds.  At least something that can be successfully treated.  Then to learn that wasn't the cause either.  I've never heard of stress related seizures, but there is so much I've never heard of.  I do hope he can get on top of this, because I can envision some situations that could be ~ well, really bad.  I'm sure you can too.  He sounds like such a good guy and I have seen how talented he is.  LouAnn must be beside herself.

I wish you lived nearer too.   I'd be glad to give you all of the flowers to play with.  They really aren't supposed to be glued, but if folks feel compelled to mess with them, I guess that's what I'll have to do.  Some have large "petals", and maybe only 8 or 10 plus the stamen.  Others have hundreds of I don't know what you'd call them other than petals, but that's not what they are.  Then actually re-arranging them in the vase is also "fun" because you can't just plunk them in like you would real flowers.  Yup, I'd like to hand the whole thing over to you, Miss Smarty Pants!  ;-)

I'm still working on the same Laura Childs book I started over a month ago.  Pathetic.   We must be like the tortoise and the hare ~ me definitely not being the hare!  lol   You read a book a day and play games and create things and I  ~~~~ don't.  lol  

Ah, well.   So it goes.

I love the beautiful Purple Tag.  Thank you!

Lots of love,

Border by Dorothy

 I didn't get a very good night's sleep last night.  I think I'll be crabby today, if that's ok.  

Cooler here today, only going to the low 70s, and of course rain.  It's been in the high 80s for the past two days.   Not a lot planned for today.  Trash and Recycle pick up is tomorrow so we may get the bins out later this afternoon.

How frustrating to lose your post!  I hate when that happens ~ and it's always after we've written a long and interesting one, never just a "Hi, how's the weather?"  

I think you are smart to pass on the restaurant rather than just going to be going, knowing you aren't going to be able to enjoy yourself ~~ and would have to spend money you don't want to spend for the "privilege".   You can enjoy everyone after dinner even more.

I've been meaning to ask ~~ how are your toes?  Are you pretty much healed??  

 Hope you have a fun outing with the gang.

Have a Happy Day, My Lovley.

Dorothy

I did not really have a lot written last night so did not lose much other than border and tags, lol. But just did not want to do it all again. I should have as I had all the time in the world. Worst night ever!! I made the mistake of having one of my moms diet cokes that was not caffeine free. When you have not had any caffeine is forever it acts like speed, lol. I blame it on that, the fact that it has been later and later to bed each night and I was reading a good book, which I finished today, lol. Martians!! I was so wider awake...I finally quit the book and headed to bed about 4 am and I remember it being 4:30am and 4:45am but then I must have fallen asleep.  Awake at 6ish but refused to get up and eventually went back to sleep, awake again at 8:30 and dozed a little and then got up after 9.  I was tired and cranky and hurting all over.  Took 1 Tylenol with codeine and that helped but made me even sleepier. Cancelled going to Louann and Bruce's because I new I was in no mood for company. Mom said you could take a nap and I said that would keep me up all night if I did. So here I am extremely tired and feeling a bit nauseous because of it. I hate that feeling. I was just sitting here thinking with my head on my hand and I was all but asleep and I pulled myself back. lol.  Somewhere in my early morning dosing Jason came and took out the trash and took a bunch of stuff to St. Vinnie's.  Yep, now that Josh is working full time hours we have Jason to help us out since he got his drivers licence in March. He was going to come after lunch, but was at Weight lifting and took his chances coming here then instead of back home and then into town again.  He is going to start coming early 2-3x a week for the morning and helping mom clean out the back room and then work on the basement.  She will in turn give him gas money. He will still have his afternoons and evenings free since he does not have a job.  Joanne said it is too hard for him to get a job since he has weight training and baseball (2 teams) all summer and school and football in fall and so one.  She is ok with helping him with gas as long as he keeps his grades up which he does. He does not hate school like Josh did.  Josh stopped in yesterday and he has a new job at the dealership...he is going to be doing customer service.  He will take the calls, schedule appts. Take down car info and what is wrong and write up the billing after. He is still alternating between the lube tech, mechanic and the new job, but it will soon be just the customer service and it has a title of some sort of manager and a nice raise. This will give him a break that he needs to decide what he wants to do. He feels bad not taking advantage of the scholarship but since he does not want to be a mechanic he sees it as a waste of his time. Not going to argue with him, want him to relax and deal with life at a slower pace.
My toes are doing good. Not painful unless I ask to much of my foot. I have been sitting her exercising the toes and probably that was not a good idea as the are is hurting now. Have kept the tows wrapped but undid them earlier today because the toes were so itchy. Lot's of dead skin. Need to get them wrapped again. Hard for me to do as my hips and knees do not let me. But I manage somehow.  Hot and humid here. Makes my skin it, lol. Chat with you tomorrow.  Tag challenge was to have a quote.
Love and Hugs,

Good Morning.  I didn't shrink this picture enuf, but I thought I'd show you our first Dahlia to bloom ~~ along with the Potentilla in full flower, and the Lilacs, which are no longer blooming.  We really missed most of the enjoyment of the lilacs because of our nasty weather, but the Bloomerangs (the two outside bushes) should bloom again.

You can't see the Dahlia very well in the picture above, but here it is "up close".   Again, sorry for the "too big".   There are three Dahlias in each pot.

Now that I've posted the too big pictures, I'm out of room to write anything ~ LOL.

You definitely have my sympathy with the bad night's sleep. How I hate that.  I am rarely without caffine, but I can see how having it when you aren't used to it would be a problem. I actually find that it sometimes acts like a sleeping draft for me.   It's a shame you didn't feel good enough to go to LouAnn and Bruce's, but I definitely understand why you might want to pass when you haven't had a good night's sleep.

I wasn't in as nasty a mood as I'd expected to be in when I got such a poor night's sleep, and last night I slept ok.  I never get anything approaching 8 hours, but if I can get a GOOD 5 or 6, I'm usually ok.

You don't know how I envy you your nephews.  I'd be more than glad to pay them if I HAD someone who could do the "little" jobs for us.  You can hire the big ones ~ admittedly at a high price ~ but who do you get to do the "little" things?  It's a problem sometimes.  I know several of our neighbors would help, but I'd rather cut off a toe than ask, and I'm sure if I did ask often they would regret having offered.  I want a nephew!  ;-)

Thank you for the pretty and very unique kitty!

Have a lovely day, my dear little sister.

Hello.  We made it through another week. ;-)

It's positively dreary here, cloudy, raining lightly and Space Aliens have abducted Denver again ~ it's gone!  I'm surprised we didn't sleep later because it's so dark.  All the shades are up and we still need lights on!

Reheating coffee from yesterday because we didn't drink it all and it's really good.  Fannie May's Vanilla Buttercream coffee ~ sounds like it would be one of those chemical tasting coffees, but it isn't.  It's really good.

Yesterday morning I sat on the porch to have my coffee and oversee the neighbor's activities and I thought I might do the same today, but it looks like that won't be happening.  Brrrr.

I got your message on Facebook.  I hope the problem doesn't last too long!  In the meantime I'll hold down the Fort.

Have a Fabulous Friday my dear little sister.

Love you much.

Dorothy

Thank you Lord, all is well with my lappy. I was worried as hell. I was downloading a scrap kit and my virus protection popped up with possibly dangerous content. I knew it was basically because it was using a downloader, but thought, oh hell, why take the chance. So I chose to have the virus program take care of it. As it "got rid" of the issues it seemed like my lappy hiccupped and everything shut down. So I then tried to bring Chrome back up but it would not open.  Nothing I tried would get it to open. So I shut down and restarted my computer but it did not good Chrome would not come up. I tried to delete it as sometimes you get the option to repair but it did not have that so I deleted it. Then the next snag, I had not way to get on the internet to reinstall it. I deleted all the other browsers I had to save space on my computer. So then I was freaking out over that. Then I thought I had seen IE come up sometimes when I do things in Incredimail. So I did a search and found IE on my computer. So I went on line with it. But that meant I had none of my shortcuts or favorites, etc. I was lost without them. So I was trying to download Chrome and it would not work. I kept trying and I would click install and it would come up saying thank you for downloading but it was not there. It never generated the chrome exe needed. But then I saw something about the Chrome toolbar for IE and I downloaded that.  It is called Chromium and it brought back all my favorites and saves stuff. Had to reset everything to Chromium. But I still could not download Chrome. So I came to Cuppa and read your post and then I tried to reply and it would not do it. I tried several times and it just kept happening and would not load. So I gave up. When I came on today I thought I would give it another try and I was able to download and install Chrome so I am back up and running. Will keep the IE Chromium for back up. I had not problems here either.  I forgot to say I also ran my virus scan, CCleaner,  Malware and Spybot last night but none of the 4 found anything that helped. Not clue what happened and why today everything in well, but am happy it is.  
The dahlia is beautiful and I love the color. I am glad that everything survived the storms and hail. Thank God for that. Over the last 2 days we have had a lot of rain but never the thunderstorms that were in the forecast. What do I have to do to get some thunder boomers? This tags challenge was to have a red & green theme. I did not want to do Christmas so this is what I did. I hope you like it.
Chat with you tomorrow my wonderful big sister. You could not know how tickled I was to be called little sister. First because I am the oldest so have never been a little sister and Second because I like to be called little anything, bwahahahahaa!!!
Hugs,

Hello. Welcome to the weekend.  As far as I can tell, the only difference is what's on TV. 

Yesterday was so dark and overcast we had to have lights on throughout the house.  Today, it's so bright we may need to head for the Morning Room to escape the sun.  It's supposed to get to the mid-80s by afternoon.   It appears that our lawn mowing day has been moved to Saturday.  Ours appears to be the only lawn dotted with those pretty little yellow flowers.   Hey, neighbors, don't blame me!  Blame the HOA.   

OhMyGosh, thank goodness that you got everything to work again!  That's the most awful feeling, when you think you may have lost everything!  I'm so glad you found a work-around until everything magically came back!

How clever to create a tag with red and green and NOT have it be Christmas.  I love it!

I'm delighted to have my sweet Little Sister, and I'm glad she's happy to have me for her Big Sister.  ;-)

Much love,

Another dreary rainy day. It is Walleye Weekend and I am sure the weather has hurt all the venders and not sure how rain affects fishing. Still no thunder boomers. Maybe I will have to move out of the Fox Valley in order to get a good storm. Though we certainly have had them in the past but none for a long time. One storm about a month ago had some rumblers but nothing big and scary. I think that's what makes you feel so alive during a big thunderstorm, being a bit scared but knowing you are safe.
Nothing much going on here. Mom and Diane are supposed to be leaving on their trip on July 6th and returning on the 20th. I will be alone for 2 weeks. Will I survive it? Yup, for the most part, just might have to up my antidepressant during the last week of June at least till they get home. I like being alone, but I also like knowing that someone is there. 2 weeks is a long time being alone, especially when you do not get out. I never minded living alone when I was active.  Going to work and out places, etc. made it nice to have my alone time. I do intend to watch a lot of things mom would not want to watch on TV, lol. Going to take good advantage of Amazon Prime!! I have gotten her to watch a couple of movies in the past 2 weeks. One was an old musical that was really lame. The other was a movie about a Chinese girl who was sold by her father into slavery in the US. It was pretty good but jumpy, they tried to fit too much story in too short a time period, making it confusing.
I have a whole list of movies to see and I want to watch Mr. Selfridge from last year and this. I could probably do one season in a day, lol.
Not sure what was with the computer but am glad there was a happy ending. I finished another book. Now I have to see if the 3rd in the series in available. No plans for tomorrow. One of these days I really need to start working on my room.
Today's tag challenge was using 3 shapes..I have a heart, a circle and a hexagon. First steampunk tag I have ever made, though it is very mild steampunk, lol.
Chat with you tomorrow, sis.
Hugs,

We don't have the flag out yet, but we will soon.   It was really hot yesterday and should be nearly as warm today.  We didn't do much and I didn't see anyone out in the neighborhood either.  We did get the official invitation to the neighborhood 4th of July Celebration, and this year it's going to be held right across the street in front of our house!   I don't think we'll have to worry about getting a parking space!   

Oh Yum.  Walleye Weekend.  How Mike would love that!

We've had late afternoon thunder storms, rather short but fierce, more afternoons than not.  None yesterday and i'll bet not today, but maybe back tomorrow.  I like them too, though the lightening really scares me.  I got that from my mom.  I think I may still have some of her nail marks in my arm from long ago lightening storms. 

I'm glad you have a lot of movies and shows saved up for when your mom is gone.  Having some 'alone time' is great, but it doesn't take long for alone time to become lonely time.  I hope some of the family and friends will stop by.  That doesn't help overnight of course, but it does help.  

We just re-watched the entire Closer, all seasons.  We had all but the last two on DVD, and Amazon had them for $12 and $13 so we got them too.  I really, really enjoyed re-watching the whole thing, and so did Mike.  So much so that he bought the first two seasons of Major Crimes, again for $12 or $13.  The third season is something like $34, so we'll wait or try to catch it on TV, and of course we are watching Season 4

We also just discovered four episodes of Season 2 "A Place to Call Home" that we had somehow missed!  I thought the Christmas episode was the last one in Season 2, but apparently 4 more episodes were released after we thought it was over.   We've watched 2 and still have 2 to watch.  Delicious.

Acorn has also just released Season 17 (I think) of Midsomer Murders.  Do you watch them?  Their seasons are so short, maybe four episodes but they are 2 hour movies or there abouts.  We loved the early ones and we're beginng to really like the newer ones with the new cast very much too.

You are burning through books and challenges and everything, and here I sit, like a catatonic snail.  So much to do, so little motivation.  LOL   

Thank you for the pretty tag!  Steampunk is definitely a new term to me.  ;-)

Have a wonderful Day!

I am ashamed, I had forgotten about Flag Day.
Though neither of us can put our flag up. You have to step up onto the porch railing to do it, or use a step ladder, but neither of us can do that anymore.
It is going to be between 75-80 all week. And cloudy for the most part. Tues is supposed to be sunny and Thur partly sunny.  All the rest till next Tues have 30-70% chance of thunderstorms. That means humidity. "sigh"
I am so happy the 4th party is right across the street. You could bring lawn chairs with you if you have any fold up lightweight ones and you can just go home when you are tired. So much fun. When we were younger we used to have neighborhood cook outs. Bring your own meat to grill and dish to pass. Then in backyards there was volley ball, badminton, baseball and kids games. We lived in a neighborhood with a lot of kids. Davis-6, Weider-6, Parson-3, Burwigs-6, Starks-5, Davies-4 and Ablers -2.
For a total of 32 kids. We had a lot of fun.
We do not watch Midsomer Murders. Mom does not like mysteries...especially murder ones, lol. But I will be watching some while she is gone. How nice a surprise to find that there were more episodes of A Place to Call Home for you to see. 
Steampunk usually has a lot of metal and mechanical things in it. Even mechanical bugs, cats, birds, etc. Not really sure where the name comes from but I see a lot of it in tagging, some fashion and even in books.  Lots of rust and gears too! I normally do not like it much, but mine is barely Steampunk.
This tags challenge was only to use this particular font which is names Peiture-Fraiche and I looked it up and it means Fresh Paint, lol.
The font really did not go with my tag if I had used it to look like wood as it was meant to be. But none of us doing this challenge did, lol.
Chat with you tomorrow sis!
Hugs,

Rainy Days and Mondays ~ Actually, it's not raining yet but it's expected to later.  Definitely cooler than it has been for the past few days.  That's nice too.

It did look patriotic around here yesterday.  I love that several of our neighbors fly the flag.  From the porch just looking up the street in front of us, I could see three houses on the right and one on the left flying their flags and I suspect there was at least one more on the left at the end of the block that i couldn't see from here.  I know there are usually others on the other two streets in the neighborhood that I can't see from my porch.  The sad thing is that I can't seem to get a picture of those I can see.  They sort of disappear.  I took a picture of our flag flying and I could see the other flags beneath it, but my picture doesn't show them.  Too bad.    I'm sorry you can't put yours up, but I'd be a lot sorrier to hear that you fell off the ladder!

It actually kind of cracks me up that your mom won't watch murder mysteries but she does watch Criminal Minds.  Mike and I rarely watch that anymore because it's gotten so mean and cruel.  I love a good serial killer as much as the next guy, but he needs to do his killing off screen and not in my face.  I can't stand watching torture, and Mike has little tolerance for it either.   Midsomer Murders or the murder mysteries on Hallmarks are so 'gentle and benign' compared to so much of the things that are shown now.  Anyway, I'm glad you will be able to indulge in a few while your mom is gone.   Have you watched "A place to call home"?  Not a mystery, but we both really like it.   Another one you might get a kick out of is "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries", also on Acorn and also Australian, but set in the 1920s where 'A place to call home' is set in the 1950s,   

Pretty tag ~ Thank you!

Have a lovely day ~~~
