Hi Kim.

I was around yesterday but nobody had posted so it felt kinda funny talking to myself

Yesterday my mother and I took a drive to try and find her sister's grave. We did not go to the funeral (were not invited). She died a few years back.

It was a 4 hour drive one way. We found the cemetery all right but never found my aunts grave

We had some sort of cryptic directions and were told to ask the groundskeeper for further help if needed.

We followed the directions as best as we could and the office was closed yesterday We searched but we never did find it.

Oh well, it was a nice day for a drive.

Today I am going to do some painting. I have a couple of bedrooms that need to be done.

Today is also my mom's 74th birthday. She is going to celebrate by coming over to help me paint

Have a good Sunday everyone.

Hi everyone!

We've been busy with Holly dog. She's in some pain, but healing. They said that running around is a big no-no as well as licking her wound. Well, our doggie isn't much for licking herself, so we thought it'd be okay to leave her for an hour.....mistake! She's managed to lick out one of the sutures. Now I'm wondering if I should call the emergency after hours vet? Or just leave it alone.

Kim - I'm glad you're feeling better. Make sure you give yourself time to get back on your feet....take it easy!

Robin - I hope your mom has a happy day and enjoy your painting ~ if you can. My dad just had his father's remains moved from California to Michigan. Long story, he died 40 years ago when he was in CA and no one could afford to have him moved to rest next to his spouse. Well, the day finally came....and my dad is much happier (he's the last one left of his family except for us kids).

I hope ya'll are having a great day and I'll chat with you later!

Ann, how is Holly doing now? What did you decide to do about the suture?

The room painting went very well. I thought it would be very hard to paint since it was a very dark blue colour but it covered totally with one coat of primer and one top coat.

Now it is something called pale bamboo. It's a medium greenish colour with a beige tint to it.

Hard to explain the colour but it looks good.

Glad to hear that your dad has his father where he wants him to be.

That must have been interesting arranging something like that? What do they do with his plot where he was originally placed?

Do they resell that to someone else

Robin, we're going to call the surgery center when they re-open on Tuesday. I don't think it's worth going to their emergency care.

I would guess they would re-sell the plot. Real estate in California is at a premium!

The color sounds beautiful. Any pictures you can post?

Take care!

Keep us updated on Holly's progress Ann.

I will take some pictures for you, maybe after I get the room back together which might not be for a bit.

Morning Kim and PD

Ann, how is Holly this morning.

I took a good look at my newly painted room last night and decided that I really should do another quick coat.

If you don't look really close at it, it looks great but I think an extra coat will make all the difference.

So today that is what I will do.

Then I will be off looking for some new bedding to go with the new colour

Have a great holiday everyone.

Hello everyone!....Remember me?

I have been soo busy with the job, the house, and the soon to be trip...that I have been MIA...even on facebook...

We have ONLY 11 days until We're on the plane to Maui
We are very excited, also a little nervous...about the plane part...

We leave Binghamton at 6:00AM...and dont get to Maui until 3:45PM Maui time...which is 9:45PM Pa. time...

Ann,
The cake turned out beautifully..
I soo glad it all worked out even with the heat....

I'm sorry to hear about Hollydog....I hope she will recover quickly...I would get her an E-collar so she cant lick at the stitches...Most dogs will lick at stitches even if they are not lickers..Its how they try to heal themselves...
We sell a lot of the E-collars at work...the people that don't buy them tend to have to come back and pay more then it would have cost them for the collar, to fix what the dog undid by licking... hopefully no damage was done. I'm sure she will be fine...

Robin,
The colors you picked sound very nice!...When we painted our den dark red, it took three coats..for a complete coverage...

Cally,
Good work on the weight loss!...
I have gained back about 10 lbs. of the loss I had..Its getting harder and harder to keep the LBs. off...I don't seem to be able to eat much of anything at all any more...I am living on fruits and veggies mostly...but don't lose.. and then if I eat even a little of something not so great for me I gain!....Its crazy. It seems the older I get the harder it is!..
Well I also don't have much time to walk anymore ..so that's may have something to do with it too....

DU,
You new LR makeover sounds nice!....

Well the family just drove up the driveway...So I better go...

Hey to everyone else

I hope you all are having a great Labor day.

TTFN

Hi everyone!

You guys are SO sweet! Holly is doing pretty good today. Still in pain (that's to be expected). The stitch hasn't gotten any worse and the incision is still together....so I think we're okay.

PD ~ Holly said hello and thanks for the pet!

Betsy ~ We have a no-lick-um collar for Holly, but it seems to be too traumatic for her to wear...she just stands there and shakes. We put it on for about 45 minutes and it was awful.

Robin ~ I bet the 2nd coat will look fab. I can't wait to see the room!

Today I made bruschetta (for dinner, the tomatoes are soaking in the fridge) macaroni salad and panini's for lunch (turkey, swiss, tomatoes, lettuce & a herbed mayo, nicely pressed/grilled). Tonight we're going to chow down on bruschetta and I'm making marinara sauce for pasta. Lots of cooking today!

Ya'll take care!

Yum Ann, I want to come and eat at your house

I've been home alone all day.

I had hot dogs for lunch and I don't know what I'm having for dinner.

I don't know when Rick will be home because he is flying his airplane.

Maybe he will call and say that everyone is going out to eat

Not too likely. I've eaten out way too many times already this week.
