Hey! I was starting to think I was all alone here today. I am just sitting here, drinking coffee and trying to motivate myself to finish this newsletter. Need to go for groceries later, and figure out what to make for the block party tonight.

Morning you two, getting cheated out of another sunny day that was supposed to be here. Grrrrrrrrr.
Mousemaker, better get out and about and away from the cooking apple fumes for a little while, never good to stay at one thing exclusively for days on end, get some air and a little change of scenery for a little while.
Kimdee, how about coleslaw? I love to make it but adding broccoli and red cabbage, raisins and dried cranberries, pecans and extra carrots. Delicious and easy to make. :)

yes, and make it with greek yogurt instead of mayo. tastes much better. add a little truvia, mustard (the good kind) and you're set. wait. and some of my red apple balsamic vinegar :)

Good morning ladies.........it's hot here today, heat index above 100, so not a whole lot going on. Just getting ready to go out and wet cut some CMU for the front porch steps...........a "REAL" man's way of playing in the hose on a hot day. :)

Been a hectic week......Lisa's mom was rushed to the ER about 1:30 in the morning Tuesday morning, trouble breathing, blood oxygen levels low, state of confusion (more than usual) and we were notified by the Assisted Living Center you lives in about 2 AM..........nothing like a phone call waking you to get your day going......

This is the 5th time this year......she's 86, has congestive heart disease, COPD, late stages of dementia and survived a bout of West Nile Virus 3 years ago that almost killed her. At the hospital they found that her CO2 blood gas levels were above 90 (not good).....spent the next day and a half in ICU and now she's on a general care floor............all of which the cumulative effects keeps adding up. Each time she comes out of it with less and less mental capacities...........

I'm so ready for a 2 week vacation on some beach somewhere with nothing but sun, breezes, clear blue water and some scantily clad girl keeping me stocked with frozen margaritas ...........I'm betting the wife wouldn't even complain about the scantily clad beach girl..........

A man can dream..............instead, we're headed to Kentucky for the weekend to visit the son and then I'll deal with the tree removal when we get back.................two large oak trees dying and damaged and desperately needing to be cut down.....one completely overhangs the house............quotes from $6800 to $9500.............damn, I need to hit the Power Ball.

Gotta run......I hear the wet saw calling my name.

STK - glad to hear the MIL is doing better. A beach vacation sounds amazing - but I'm not so sure Kentucky is the place for them... but I'm sure they have a beach somewhere in the state... Lol

Late start to the day. I was up quite late making some freezer meals. Our platoon is making a bunch of freezer meals to take over to our co-workers family to help them out. So I made teriyaki chicken (pop in the slow cooker and make up some rice - boom suppers ready) as well as vegetarian chili. Have to run them out to Sherwood Park this afternoon so another coworker can drop them off with the family.

hi, my internet connection was down for a day. suppose sometimes it's good to get away from it for a bit.
hang in there STK and order up a cabana boy for your wife when you get to the the beach.
JAYME, did you see remodelers daily update today? good article on financial goal setting for contractors.

so here we go again. the 26 yr old troublesome guest bath toilet needs to be replaced. the almond laminate counter and 4" almond tile floor look new but have overstayed there welcome. so since the new toilet is white...
oh and that darn almond tub/shower combo has to go. so tuesday i picked out floor and wall time. and the 60" counter top will be replaced with 24" X 24" marble tiles.the new tub is currently in my driveway.keeping the plate mirror and framing it. i hoped to convert an artists clay bowl to a sink but no one is willing to try. they may do one of my glass bowls instead. although i found some pretty vessel sinks on clearance for $!00. easier so i
may just do that tomorrow.

speaking of shopping ,does anybody else get totally confused in electronics stores?

Wow Mo, you don't let any grass grow under your feet do you? Sounds like the bathroom will be done in a couple of minutes, lol. Can't say I blame them for not wanting to put a hole in your artists bowls. The vessel sinks on sale sound like a good plan though. :)

You're a nice lady to feel sorry for her. I'd guarantee that she wouldn't feel sorry for you, lol. I believe she would look down her nose at your "eau de burning stumps" perfume from a couple weeks ago. Is she finally talking to her daughter?

She can't look down her nose, her plastic surgeon removed a chunk of it when he jacked her eyelids up. Hmmmmmm. wonder what it's like to sleep with your eyes still open :) She says "the way i envisioned it" a lot. Isn't that a fancy pancy statement, for people who have never done anything on there own, ever and never will, clueless is a disease. I'm all about the execution baby : ) make it happen!!!!!!. Almost starting to miss my "eau de burning stumps" LOL

No mention of her daughter.

michele, i own 2 tvs. 26" and 32" and both are at least 6 yrs old. the bdrm tv moved to the new screen porch.
so it's time to buy a larger screen for the great rm. apparently i walked in to the store with "stupid" across my forehead. the sales person gave a big pitch on the latest and greatest and then walked me over to a sony with a stunning picture. it was a mere $4,000! hmm not quite what i had in mind. then i point out the sound is bad on it. he defended it and told me i needed some kind of super amp for an addt'l $1500. he back peddled about just how inferior all other sets were when i was about to walk out. too late. damage done.can't get excited now about the others and can't afford the best.

oh and i need new stereo equipment.

candace, it must be amazing for some to live on a scale so far removed from most peoples realities.
IDK whether these people are truly happy. maybe some really are.
i read today about a very successful movie director who found he wasn't happy with the trappings of possessions. he now lives in a mobile home on the beach and has given millions to charities and is very involved in helping people. on the other hand, i'm glad there are wealthy people who can support great artists, designers,architects.

Hahahaha, Candace, it's true. She probably oh does sleep with her eyes open, that's how she "envisions" things, lol. Hmmmmm, and she shares a name with you? See, I knew you weren't Candace Olsen, I saw that post from someone in your ideabook, you're really candy spelling. Or you can spell "CANDY", one of the two.

Mo, I wouldn't waste my money on something from those stores. You're going to need to replace it in 5-7 years anyway, at least the way they build things now. I'd go to Walmart or target or BJ's or Costco. Get a nice big screen with the best pic and sound. Spend less than a third of the price you'd pay at an electronics store. Don't let them rip you off.

Oh god!!!! I totally forgot about that. I thought I had removed all the "OMG your Candace Olsen" comments, please don't tell me there's another one. Thought for sure, I had shaken this person off. I'll have to check all my idea books, was this recently that you saw that, do you remember which one. If I was spelling, what would I do.........I can spell CANDY, but surprisingly nobody has ever called me that. Sure there's been a time or two but I actually don't realize there talking to me and then they say my name. When I was a kid (seems like yesterday) my mom would have freaked, if anyone called me that.
