Hello everyone. we are in the 80's again and raining this afternoon. I got caught in it coming home from helping one of my Girls to clean house. misting at her place and down pour at mine. LOL Had my shower for the day no need to soap up and rinse down later. LOL Have both fans running and a pail of ice in front of the one I am in front of to get cooler quicker.
With the remodel we only have carpet on one floor and that is our bedroom. Moved the vaccumn in there to lazy to keep hauling it back and forth. LOL
I will be real glad when we get the paneling for my Quilting Room then it will be done and when they get the Bathroom up front here done my quilting room will be empty so I can get my quilting stuff back in here. I can't wait to get back to making my quilts. So boring around here when my house work is done. Goes quickly now with just wood floors through out the trailer every thing slides so well. Might put up a fight to keep the carpet out of the Trailer as my cleaning gets done with in 2-3 hours now instead of 2-3 days.

With the new setup and the most recent post threads going to the top I really didn't think we needed to make new discussions because the scrolling is not so bad now. (One of the GOOD things about the new setup IMO.)

nevertheless I will put a link to the new discussion page so people will have an easier time finding it. Please see the link above

for anything above freezing. I sun is always a plus. Wishing

Good morning everyone,
Beautiful day here in Maine today…sunny with temperatures up to 50! Just like spring!
Had my 3 month doctor's visit on Tuesday. My A1c was down a bit (still working on getting it down more), I had lost 10 lbs., and my blood pressure was the best it has been in many years. My doctor was so happy! Me too! :)
Have a great weekend everyone,
Sal :)

As far as time goes, someone has said, Time is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer to the end you get the faster it goes.

I LOVE the toilet paper analogy!!! It's so true. :)

I remember when all the 'technology of the future' was going to create lives of leisure for us. All it's done is speed things up and increase stress.

And, BTW, whatever happened to 'happily ever after'? Reminds me of a great closing line from a movie I can't remember: "And they lived happily ever after…at least two days a week, which is all you can expect." lol

Good evening everyone,
I had a busy day, and it felt great! I went to Ikea with my girlfriend. We had a great time, and I held up well considering I just had surgery last Tuesday. I am hopefully going back to work on Thursday, so this was good for me. I am sure I will be fine to go back now.
Have a good night,
Sal :)
