    Morning Tweety Helped train a new employee at work, she seems promising Cat continues to improve, seems almost back to normal Had a bit of a surprise at the pharmacy at the cost of one of my meds with the new insurance. Afterwards I figured out that they hadn't put the new insurance in the system, they were still using the GoodRx discount I was using before the new insurance kicked in. Will have to get them to fix that Talked to J, his flight was very late last night but he did have a good trip. We're going to see a play this Sunday, so it's going to be a busy weekend for me. We'll get together Friday as we usually do Weather will be in the 70s for the next few days which should be nice

    Morning Decent day at work. More changes to process, will likely mean more work but I can adapt. With jobs like this adapatability is the key, keeping flexible until processes become established. There's usually a good bit of turnover until that point is reached too. Exercised and did my meditation when I came home, also did the laundry since I had time Today the rain is holding off until later, so I'm headed out for a hike. Will also meet dad for lunch. Svengoolie has Village of the Damned which is supposed to be pretty good Have been trying to determine if my weight loss is plateauing, but hard to tell, it's been pretty variable the last few weeks. I've done better than expected, which is good

    Morning Tweety Stars I know this is a difficult time for you, I'll pray for strength for you and your dh as travel this difficult road Work was fine yesterday, not too busy Managed to get out early and get to the doctor's appointment on time. Thankfully he's decided I only need twice a year follow up. Probably a result of my success in keeping my weight and BP down Ran some errands and did laundry. Wanted to exercise but it got too late Some rain yesterday but not much. Today there might be some more, and even more likely tomorrow. Temps have been pretty good so far

    Morning Going to be a rainy/stormy day today. Already I can see dark clouds approaching. Might have a break in the rain around the middle of the day Yesterday was fairly busy and productive. Got the fingerprints done and mailed off. Stopped at the farmer's market. Met with the environmental group. Met dad for lunch. Did my ususal exercise and meditation. Even watched Svengoolie as he had House of Wax which is pretty good. Have always liked Vincent Price's voice Today have church then a meeting of the rummage sale committee shortly afterwards. The rest of the day should be fairly free. Will do the cooking for the week. Also need to find time for cross stitch which I haven't done the last 2 days

    Morning Tweety Quieter day at work yesterday, which was nice Didn't sleep great last night as I woke up with a headahce. Took some acetaminophen and was able to get back to sleep Had to clean up a hairball this morning, which wasn't fun. The cat hasn't had any this whole year, now she's had 3 in the last 2 weeks. Hopefully this will be the last of them Had to throw out my petunias, they were attracting swarms of tiny flies or gnats. Oddly enough my Christmas cactus and bamboo plant don't have this problem, perhaps because their soil get dry between waterings, which are less frequent than for the pentunias So kinda tired this morning but mananging. Won't meet J tonight as he's leaving for CA early tomorrow morning No rain yesterday and no rain for a while in the forecaset for at least a few days, which is nice

    Morning Tweety Was a surprisingly busy Monday morning at work for me. Thankfully things settled down in the afternoon, which gave me time to recover More exercise and cross stitch when I got home. Also had to pick up some fruit fly traps, the petunias seem to be attracting them Will be rainy today but hopefully only while I'm at work They've loosened the dress code at work, we can wear jeans as long as we're not meeting with people outside the organization. Which is kinda nice.

    Morning Tweet Quiet day for me yesterday. Church then worked on cross stich a bit then went to lunch with J. A rather late lunch, as he had to push back the time due to running late then ended up arriving late anyway. Oh well. Still had time to exercise and so some cooking afterwards Back to work today, hopefully this week will go smoothly as last week did Weather has remained pretty good, in the 80s with no rain yet, although some is expected this week

    Morning Tweety hope this Thursday isn't too bad Work was fine. Though I spent some time talking to coworkers and things aren't as fine for them. I think the uncertainty and chaos is taking a toll and some might not be here by the end of the year. I can tolerate it as this is something I've experienced before and knew to expect it when I started Fairly quiet night last night, just the usual exercise and meditation. Talked to J for a bit. Worked on cross stitch some more Tonight have the grocery shopping to do Was quite nice yesterday, in the 70s, will be a bit warmer the next few days

    Morning Fairly ordinary day yesterday. Church, cooking, exercise. Emailing with J, things are going well with his houseguests Back to work today. Going to be a rainy day apparently, but temps will be more reasonable this week and probably no additional rain expected Surprised at how fast the summer is going by.

    Tweety my mom woud sometimes make homemade jam BC have fun, Randy Rainbow is hilarious Didn't get to see the train yesterday, the crowds were enormous and the parking non-existent. Stopped by the arboretum on the way home as I really like their gift shop. Met dad for lunch. Rode my bike yesterday afternoon in spite of the heat Today I have church and cooking to do today. Not sure what else I'll do. I might go outside after church if it's not too hot

    Friday - July 26th, 2019 - Good Morning!

    Morning Ted Not too busy a day at work yesterday. Exercised afterwards and worked on cross stitch Hopefully today won't be too busy at work either. Afterwards meeting J for dinner. I have bowling later tonight. Might try to squeeze laundry in between the two Tomorrow Union Pacific is going to have their restored Big Boy steam locomotive in the far western surburbs. Will hopefully be able to drop by and see that before I meet dad for lunch Weather is still pretty good, not too hot. And rain is still holding off, which is a relief

    Morning Ted Tweety. Welcome NurseBlaq Fairly ordinary day at work. J had to cancel on dinner as his stomach was acting up again. It was probably the stress of trying to get his houseguest to the airport on time in rush hour traffic that caused that. So I went grocery shopping instead Slept well last night, no smoke detectors going off this time Should be a fairly ordinary day today, will exercise once I get home and probably work on my cross stitch Rain is still holding off but is slowly getting warmer

    Stars I hope you can find some relief for your back and for Nannie's behavior. Hopefully in the latter a med adjustment will help

    Morning Had to stay at work a little bit late....lately we've been setting aside time, an hour each day, to be ready to answer calls from customer service. This week I have to be ready from 4 to 5. Thankfully it'll only be rare that I'll have this shift, and my schedule is flexible enough to accomodate it Did some cross stitch last night, but will have to redo it as I used the wrong number of threads. We'll see if I have time to manage that today J's visitors have arrived, most should leave by today. The last should leave by tomorrow. Hoping things go smoothly Has been getting a bit warmer but not nearly as hot as last week. Might be a bit of rain today but much less rainy than it has been Am planning to see Union Pacific's Big Boy locomotive, the 4014, that's been recently restored. It's going to be out in the far western suburbs this Sat/Sun, hopefully the crowds won't be too big and the rain holds off

    Morning Tweety hope your bad week isn't too bad Smoke detector went off at midnight for some reason, then stopped. Took it down but couldn't see anything wrongTook a while to fall back to sleep and woke up several times thereafter. So a bit tired and disoriented this morning Also, my scale decided not to work. Have been weighing myself every Wed morning for months, so was a little disorienting too. Replacing the batteries didn't help, so I'll need a new one soon Work hopefully will go well. Found out I don't have to stay on the phone until 5 which is good, I can leave a bit early then Will likely be meeting J for dinner if his friend departs for the airport early this evening as scheduled. But we'll see, it seems flights today are often delayed or cancelled Glad the rain has been holding off and it's not too warm, at least not yet

    Interesting that it calls for boiling water. Have seen that with some old recipes
