Some of you may recognize this, it's a piece I showed Angela for her bedroom. It's so pretty I thought I'd give it a place of honor here today. Good Saturday morning to all of you, hope it's a great day!! :)

One more night shift... that makes today a great day. Tomorrow will be even better. They're actually calling for ok weather for my days off. Weird! Maybe I'll be able to get some stuff done outside finally!!!

I have to finish the stone raised beds in the back of the yard, cut back the pumpkins before they pull over my tomatoes, dig out stumps and bushes in the front... The list goes on. None of which I've been able to complete due to the lack of good weather on days off. Seems to always be sunny when I'm at work, but as soon as days off hit the clouds roll in.

On a good note, I was stopped by at least 3 different people last night to thank me and the profession for what we do. That was definitely a feel good moment of the night.

Robin...Glad u got some appreciation! It's an extremely difficult field, u face things daily that would deeply traumatize most people. IDK how we all don't have severe PTSD! (some do, I am sure).
YOU ROCK & thank you for what u do, and I mean it.

What's wrong with the plants Angela? A few dead ones? I need to clean mine up too...a few times they got neglected when we left for the weekend. Need to prune out the dead stuff...I also discovered an aphid infestation on my cosmos...wretched little things those aphids are.

Maybe mix in a little potting soil that has a lot of nutrients already in it. Mix it in deep so the roots get the nourishment.

Morning ladies, very quick call by as I'm trying to get some early nights.

Angela, can you get Dynamic Lifter? It is an all purpose fertilizer that is good for gardens and lawns and everything loves it. Dig a heap into your garden before you plant, even add a small handful of pellets at the base of the hole you dig for your plants. I haven't seen a hibiscus like that before, but they can die suddenly. They are heavy feeders and need to be well fed otherwise they will starve everything around them, especially in pots. They love Dynamic Lifter too.

Off to bed. Have a good day.

Ez-I did learn one thing from watching the paint guy but so far that is it, trying to figure out how long to wait to paint second coat. Michele-my decorator was so impress with all the hard work that I have done so far. She remember the way it was when she walked in here the first time. I told her that I have the report that she sent me and keep it as a reminder that I will not backslide again. My friend is convinced that I am obsessed and will take decorating classes in my spare time.

I'm glad she likes what you're doing, it always feels good to get props and encouragement from someone whose opinion you value. You are doing really well, and despite the crazy kooks who show up and yell at us on your thread, lol, you're actually moving at a pretty good pace. There's no reason to rush something that you want to live with and enjoy every time you look around at it. :)

hey ladies....just checking in to say howdy! Was off yesterday and am getting off at 6 today. We have had almost normal temps for summer here this past week, but thunderstorms every afternoon or all evening! Plants are still going crazy and I have not had to water once this year.
Found a cheap headboard for Boo Mappin's room and painted first coat yesterday. I also discovered that I have a small cabinet that I used in the bathroom at last house that will go with it perfectly. So I'm repainting that as well.

Ang, love the door color! Looks great! You will love walking up to that and I'm sure the neighbors will love driving by it!

Hey everybody! Hope your weekend is going well!

Hi everyone, and hey MP! Nice to see you, hope all is well.

I just noticed there is a shopping cart icon on the tool bar above...

Robin -- something bad happened on the Henday on my way to golf. I think a cyclist got hit... EMT was there, stretcher out, poor person lying on the side of the road. Made me sad, I hope he/she is okay. I thought about it all afternoon.

Well, had a discussion with the partner and she's decided to leave the car, which is fine. But apparently people are saying I'm an incompetent medic and I snap a lot for no good reason.

Interesting that none of this has been said to my face. I hate backstabbers.

If it was a real problem, they would have told you to your face. Sneaky underhanded behavior is usually just that because its got no merit. Would it surprise you that partner may have been the source of the whole problem? People like that can be very dangerous when they want to be.

Beautiful day today, spent it at the lake, stopped for a bite of Pizza on the way home. Just love a day when not too many people are there, we so enjoy just shutting the boat off and diving in. Sipping a cold one on the dock and watching the first timers get up on a pair of skis, wakeboard or surfboard. Our bay is the perfect spot for people just learning, so the free entertainment is hilarious. Talked with a couple that has a cabin on the lake for a bit......you know when you'll just never bother talking with someone again, or at least not intentionally. I think I've seen my husband roll his eyes just once before today. The shower is free, gotta jump in while I have a chance, I'll be back ;)

Well, I think I'm gonna crawl into my bed. Literally. Every. Single. Muscle. in my legs, backside and lower back are screaming from taking that TV down and putting it back up again yesterday. Funny how muscle aches don't show up for 24 hours.

Robin -- chin up and walk proud.
Jayme -- I hope that's not YOUR prop...
Candace -- enjoy the lake this week as much as you can. Supposed to be a nice week.

Everyone... sweet dreams!

O.k. what a relief to get that lake water off. I always feel like a swamp monster until I can get showered off!!!

Hi Michele, Jayme, Angela and Robin, night kimdee.

Jayme, LOL looks like we had the same kinda day :), seriously that props a mess.
Did you bring a sketch pad and start drawing that cabin?

Robin, I think Michele called it perfectly. I agree, your so called partner, is the source of all this B.S. Best she move on and take her petty jealously with her!!!!!

Jayme, that looks like a blast, I'm happy you guys had such a ball
Candace, don't you hate that? And you know they probably thought you guys were great and sooo interesting and wow, let's look for them again because we really hit it off. Lol, they'll be powering on over to visit you all the time. Luckily, once you finish the lake house, I'll come and take it over from you and I'll just slam the door in their faces. :) left you message in ideabook :)
Robin, I know it feels awful, but it really does sound like a backstabbing by an unpleasant person filled with jealousy and a hell of a lot of stupidity and not much else. Don't let them define you, go back with your head held high and kick some medic ass, not literally of course :)
