Good morning Bobbi!! Sorry to hear about the ultra high temperatures out west; was thinking about Eztia too. Here, the high humidity makes even temps in the 80s feel oppressive!

Drizzling here this morning, so I didn't walk. Doing all my end-of-the-month paperwork.

Morning Astraea! Yep, humidity is awful. Normally we get a dry heat but lately the humidity seems much higher. Walking out the door, the heat just smacks you in the face! At least our heat wave will be short lived, maybe for the next week, but EZ gets it all day everyday!

Kim, I silver leafed some ceramic jars my SIL brought me from Mexico. They were done in a Southwestern style which isn't us, so first I spray painted them chrome, that didn't work, then I painted them silver with Martha Stewart paint, that didn't work, so I silver leafed them. It's a multi-step process, they're not done yet so the jury is out.....

Morning super cool chicks!! Anyone know what the heck this plant is called? It's an indoor here in northeast but in Florida it's outside. Angela has this in front of house and I think she should put a few more there to fill in the empty spot (and replant the tiny green plant somewhere else) there's a much better picture on her bedroom help thread.

Evening all. Hey, kd - you and I are going ratty together, I missed Busy's post too.

Bobbi, photos of jars when done please. You have me very curious. What is a Southwestern style??

About to hit the sack as usual, STILL raining. DD and partner arrived unexpectedly late this afternoon (having a kid free weekend) and bearing Thai take away - aren't visitors like that wonderful. Lovely restful evening, the time just flew by.

LA SIL been complaining about the heat too Bobbi, you are not alone there. Without DD there to start up the A/C he has been coming home to a scorching hot house so has been going to the Country Club for a lovely long swim before dinner - DD hopes he gets into a real routine with it for when she gets home ........ heehee........... an afternoon cooling swim and dinner out would be very easy to take. She will have to remember to try to not put the A/C on.

Good morning ladies............ woke up to a fantastic sun rise and just right temperature morning with a ever so slight breeze. Crystal clear sky..... watched the palette of colors evolve from night to the pale colors of early morning red, orange to yellow, yellow green to blue............than just sat there on my steps, soaking in the song birds, breeze and cool dry air sipping on my coffees..............a good start to a great day. Temps today will be in the low 80's with a drop in the humidity levels . All ready sprayed the rose bushes, crab apple tree, cherry tree and the Japanese Weeping Willow..........and that was it on my list today, other than the trip to Sears to exchange the weed eater that refuses to run at high speed.......

Will most likely work on the porch design today........have already torn off the 1" grout and mosaic tiles that didn't go with the house at all and am down to the concrete surface of the landing and the steps, now I have to figure out how we're going to even up the risers and treads to conform to the code and add the wrap around extensions at each end. The finished project will result with acid stained concrete porch and treads with solid brick finish on the risers.............then we can start the patio.........progress, one tiny step at a time.

Lisa has to spend some time with her mom tomorrow going through jewelry ............MIL swears somebody is stealing her jewelry when she's not in her apartment..........been through this before. She either puts stuff up and then forgets where she put it and just assumes that it has been stolen, or she remembers something from years ago that she either gave to one of her grand daughters or friends and starts looking for it and when she can't find it ..... it must have been stolen..........dementia is quickly stealing her thought process and everyday it's something new. After the last hospital stay, she was convinced that someone had stolen her refrigerator.....the assisted living unit she lives in only has an undercounter unit in it and she was thinking of the refrigerator in her last apartment.......... some of the claims are just down right funny. In her last place, someone came in and stole her grape jelly and replaced it with strawberry jam..........and oddly enough, when things do show up, the person who stole it must have brought it back because it was in some place she would never put it...........every week it's something. Never a dull moment.

Hoping everybody has a good day........Bobbi stay cool, EZ don't let the paper work bury you.....Robin be safe running (just don't understand that unless bears are chasing you.....).....gots to get ready for a trip to Sears and see what stuff I might need...................Adios Amigos

Bob, can't wait to see your silver-leaf experiment. I've never done it, but always thought it would be fun to try.

Astraea.....Guess what J has been doing up there, among other things....Cleaning the crawlspace at his mom's house, removing mold, and disinfecting, Lying on his back! He was under there for 3 days. He said he felt 100 years old after the 3rd day. I wouldn't be able to do it at all. I
m too claustrophobic. Then painting a house next door that has no AC at the moment. he said the paint was melting on the wall last night. I told him not to do that in that humidity, but he won't listen to me!

Hey Ezzy!!!! Saw your heat temps on the news this morning. WOW!

And she is always into art. So we usually do some sort of artistic project. But we plant flowers and all kinds of things!
i try to always do activities with her when she visits. Things that mom may be too exhausted to do with her all the time. But I also try and teach her things that are almost extinct! Like, she wrote a letter to her parents last weekend and then I showed her how to put it in an envelope and took her to the post office. She put the stamp on it and we put it in the slot. So she would have an idea of how mail got from one house to another.

the house they stay in used to be Aaron Carter's ( Nick Carter-boy band fame's, younger brother). He sold it to one of my SIL's dad's friends. It's a compound with docks etc. Several houses on the property. It was on MTV Cribs show one time when Aaron owned it. My SIL's family keep their fishing boat there, so when they want to take off, the boat is always ready. And they LOVE to fish!

Roo - Southwestern style - kind of hard to explain. This is a good example tho, if you throw a little pink in the mix. It's kind of a mix of Native American culture with a dusty color pallet. http://vonnstudio.com/subtle-southwestern-color-palette/

I saw this wall quote in a magazine ad and I thought it was perfect for our motto. It just seems to sum up the way we behave (or misbehave!)

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a ride!"

Sorry ladies, I don't know too many southern plants, different planting zone.

Saturday's are busy as it's renter changeover day. Hubby installed a new light over kitchen table at one house, old one had been working on and off for a couple months ago, so I finally ordered a new one. I did some weeding and changed the vacuum bag.

I cut hydrangeas today, filled 3 vases plus a bundle for my neighbor. Still a ton blooming.
Going to dinner tonight with friends, nice place, really good food.

Everyone is so cute and adorable, including the policeman and the dog.

mforr, this will be fun to see what everyone sees in your cutting board….the old rorsharch ink blot test.

I see a buffalo.

One day Bob and his best friend, Tim, head out for a day of golf.

Bob has promised his wife, Linda, he will be home by six for a special dinner she is preparing.

Six o'clock comes and goes…then 7…then 8. Linda is furious.

Finally at 9, car lights shine in the driveway. Bob can barely get out of the car without Linda's help. He is exhausted, dirty, sweaty and weak.

Linda, seeing his condition, goes into loving wife mode, realizing something awful has happened.

"Bob, sweet-heart, what happened to you?"

Bob, gulping for air, replies, "Tim and I tee-off, and boy, do we begin the day with some great shots. But when we get to the 8th hole, Tim grabs his chest and falls to the grass, dead".

"Oh, honey, that's terrible. No wonder you were so late; no wonder you are so frail. That is just so tragic. What did you do? You two were all alone?"

"Yes, it was so tragic and difficult. I had to hit the ball, drag Tim, hit the ball, drag Tim".

mforr..i thought of another idea for your birdcage stand...have you looked at any decorative solar pretties? That might be kind of interesting. Or just a metal bird. I actually saw an ad in the paper the other day and it was a flat metal fake bird cage with a bird on it. It was very cool, but too big for your thing. Are you crafty? Can you make something cool and unique to hang from it?

way off subject, but a good thing to be reminded of sometimes!

FABLE OF THE PORCUPINE______________________

It was the coldest winter ever.

Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together. This way they could protect themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companionis even though they gave off heat to each other.



After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.



So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it, was the heat that came from the others.

This way they were able to survive.

Moral of the story: The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but the best is when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.



iN OTHER WORDS.....



LEARN TO LOVE THE LITTLE PRICKS IN YOUR LIFE.

Ok everybody, I'll tell you all about the nutty collection of stuff I bought today (and have not yet told my husband!) I went to a garage sale, ended up calling my business partner to come look at some of the stuff. Another guy there was getting a big pile of stuff and so was I. The seller said that he would sell the whole lot for one price. So, I ended up going in with the guy I met at the sale (who actually lives only a couple blocks from me) and we bought the entire collection!

This was an older guy and his wife, and their sons are plumbers who ended up moving to Texas and left the entire inventory of parts, supplies, tools, storage, etc. So, we ended up going in halves with the other guy and we're going to split the inventory. He's more interested in the materials while we're more into the tools but there's more than enough to supply both of us. Lots and lots of copper fittings (no pipe though), batch of step ladders, tools, valves, faucets, repair parts.The last big project we did where we needed to do a complete house we spent as much on materials for one 1800 sq ft house as we did to buy half of this stock. Plus, we got a decent riding lawnmower and a good appliance dolly both of which are useful to us.

There's enough value in the collection that we'll get our money's worth even if we don't end up with an even split and I think we'll figure out how to divide the stuff reasonably evenly.

nice score linda. it's fun to hit on a big one. didn't buy much to sell today. bought an old 15 panel mahogany door which i'll have fun with. probably dry brush a few colors and distress it. add a large mirror, some antique hardware and lean it against a tall wall. it would also make a great headboard, potting stand or a desktop with a piece of glass over it. 4 coffee table books on architecture and photography. all like new and only $1.00 each.

Good night all of you, you have really outdone yourselves today - 269 EMAILS!!!! Did Feeny drop by, I don't see her posts though, she must have deleted. Anyway, Hi Feeny, missing you.

We sure are one bunch of special people with such gorgeous grands. For all you newcomers, talking about co-incidences, we had one OLLD once whose grands go to the same school as Miss 7. DDs are still yet to meet up.

Robin - congrats on your run - tomorrow will be the telling time.

Astraea, the fact that Miss 7 is in Australia while the bf is in Alaska is why they couldn't be much further apart - unless he went to visit Santa and we took a trip to Antartica. DD won't let her out of her sight at the moment, but I'm sure in years to come she will.

Jayme, congrats on saving the goat - hope you get feedback on it.

Bobbi - thanks for the link, love those Southwestern style colours, I thought they would have been perfect with Revere Pewter :))) Seriously.

Love those wedding dresses, but am stunned at the tatts on the model. Can't believe she would get work with them. Jokes very clever, love the dog getting frisked, AND the best news of all ...................

AFTER 16 STRAIGHT DAYS we finally had a sighting of the big yellow ball in the sky. Dare we hope for more???

Talking crotons too - here is mine, totally different

On a lighter note, what do you think that woman thought when my mommy told me to come and look at goat pictures on our thread?

I'm all wired up because I stayed up to watch the race. Grrrrrrr... I'll still wake up at 4 or 5... Can't help it :)

Patty, that is my croton, no idea what it could be without the spots. I chose it because it goes with my black/yellow dining room........... when I work out where to put it exactly.

Alcohol does have great cleaning qualities, makes you wonder what it does to the stomach sometimes. And for cleaning driveways and concrete areas there is nothing like Coca Cola. It is also great for cleaning greasy mechanics overalls.

Jayme - you forgot saving the animals.

Hi Pamela, nice to have another Aussie on board to help me keep these Yanks under control. I'm only down the road on the northern side of Sydney. The OLLD actually stands for Old Ladies Love Design and this daily thread was formed by a group of regulars as we kept hijacking other people's for our personal little catchups. We have now expanded our age group by taking in some "trainees" - after all someone has to continue the good work when we get to forgetting who we are and our arthritic fingers refuse to type. We have also taken a couple of Roosters into the Henhouse, but Sir David of Ironwood is in our prayers at the moment as he is not a well man, so we just have Kutchie to help out with the professional "man" things. Most of the Ollds are in the US of course, with 3 in Canada (and by co-incidence quite near each other), 2 in Scotland, one in Switzerland and one in Holland who drops by occasionally. Hope I've left no one out, I will be in serious trouble.

How are you surviving this rain? I'm probably feeling it more as my 2nd DD who lives in LA arrived with grands to spend 4 weeks here and so far in the first 16 days they have only gotten out once to do the sightseeing things they enjoy.

We start a new thread each US day - which is usually around 8pm our time, for the previous day, always under OLLD and the date written the US way. What gets discussed is in the lap of the Gods.

Yes it is belting down here again now and even if it does let up, it will probably be days before it is dry enough to go a lot of places. I do hope the silicone works on the skylight, the buckets in the loungeroom (or anywhere) would be a nightmare.

I have just renovated both my bathrooms and put those fan/heater/lights in - they make a huge difference. The Yanks can't work out how we put them in the roof as we do without them causing problems.

Good TV night tonight at least. Catch you later on tomorrow's thread.

that's funny about your husband wanting you to admire his handy work it seems universal that a woman can do 100 thiings without expecting recognition or praise and a man does one chore, however mundane, and has to call us to show it off!

roo, bath light/fan/and heater? will it really warm the room quickly? my GC is supposed to install a fan/ light this week. i'd love to get one with aheater. the bath has high ceilings with a skylight and is always called in winter.
