Piano was picked up this morning. They really knew what they were doing and got it out of the house in good shape and no harm to the floors or anything. Then I worked on tax estimates, making deposits by phone, starting a load of laundry, sending reminders to clients, offering some books to DD and DN (niece), etc. I again tried to call the IRS practitioner hotline and got “Due to unsually heavy call volume, call back another time”. 😣 DH and I went briefly to the nearby bank branch and got our Well agreement notarized. We probably should… Read more »

UPDATE on the missing food dishes:
I put out 2 heavy glass bowls this morning because i was in a hurry & didn’t feel like making the ferals wait while I searched for something else. At 6p went out to find them GONE — AGAIN 😡 One was broken on the steps and the other was on the side of the garage, standing upright with food still in it —
Feel as though I’ve strayed into the Twilight Zone 😟

Good evening friends. Our weather has been so beautiful……but a heat wave is on its way in. Blessed to have A/C.
This has been a hurtful week for me……big knee injections on Monday and went for 6 month dental cleaning and exam today. All that picking and scraping has brought pain to teeth and gums. 🙄
I am about ready to hit the bottle…🍾…..lol….and I don’t drink 🍷Perhaps Advil will help.
Good night and God Bless. Take care ♥

Howdy do Lovely Owl People 🦉🦉 Sunny and very hot; heading to 104F 🥵 Chopped celery/green onions, made a mac salad for lunch; was a little heavy-handed with the mayo 🙄 so heavy in fact, had to add another full cup of pasta. Don’t know what i was thinking! Went to feed the ferals and No Food Dishes 😡I have no idea what animal/person did with them, but not a single one was to be found; water dishes are fine. I’ll be using paper plates/plastic throw-aways after this. One dish was weighted/insulated for winter water so it wouldn’t freeze and it was… Read more »

That is just terrible that all of your food dishes for cats have disappeared. It sure is a mystery. Too bad you don’t have a security camera in that area to catch the thief. Paper plates and throw away dishes are the way to go from now on.
Sorry you threw out those expensive cards by mistake. We all make mistakes so don’t be too hard on yourself. 😘
Your cartoon is funny and I can relate. 😄

Hello…it’s 89 here today…the feels like temp is 94, so I have the a/c on. I did some laundry, cleaned the bathroom, finished sweeping and vacuuming that I started yesterday, and did litter boxes. A friend called, it’s been quite awhile..I don’t call her because she’s so busy..it was good to hear from her. We live about 45 minutes apart but only see each other every year or two. We might bring sandwiches to FIL”s house tonight but I’ll just stay home if it’s storming..we are under a severe watch until 8. I’m going to read awhile now..

Had Bible and cioffee with my friends, and then to the post office to mail out a tax return. Went home and worked on paying bills, and then to the car delaership to get my repaired car and return the courtesy car. My car works like a charm now! Took a box of books to be donated to the library on the way home. Then worked more on paying bills. Also had a client stop by and pick up a tax return when I got home, and a friend stopped by to pick up her parent’s car which they left… Read more »

Good morning Lovely Owl People 🦉🦉 Sunny; got up to a toasty 99F 🌡️🥵 Was planning to do wonders this morning, but with only 4 hours sleep, those ‘wonders’ have to wait 🤪 DB-Chuck got a new outside grill yesterday, he’s so excited; the old one was pretty beat up, to the point that we couldn’t even hook up the propane tank due to the screw being stripped & the hose leaked, geez 🙄 It was 20 years old! We got a flood warning here in Rocky Ford this morning; that water is movin’ fast! So much road construction — UGH,… Read more »

Thanks Tea; we’re on a hill so the warnings/floodings don’t affect us at the house; however, those warnings would affect us if we were silly enough to get in the car and try to go somewhere! 🙄

Good morning friends, we have sun today, yesterday was no sun and air didn’t even come on.. was in low 70’s so far today we have 80, yesterday would have been a perfect day to do yard work, but spent the day dealing with the leaky filter to the ice maker.. I alarmed DH of the fact discovering water on the floor.. we pulled out the refrigerator and was all wet under it..DGS took me to Lowes to get a new filter as it was leaking from the fitting and got a new one as the other expired a year… Read more »

Had a client come and sign a tax return this monring, and then attended a 2 hour online tax seminar. Then I called about lawn treatments and left a message and never got a phone call back. Sigh… Worked on several tax returns and made lists of questions and sent out emails and calcuated some estimated payments. Filed the one that came in this morning. Had Church Home Group Zoom meeting. Worked on another tax return. The story of my life… DB called and our other DB got a notice about something regarding a recalculation of his mortgage payment or… Read more »

I don’t think there’s A/C in that store 😧 By the time i got out of there, i looked/felt as tho’ i’d just spent an hour in a steam bath in my clothes! UGH 😟 Adding insult to injury, i left my empty bags in the car and had to bag my own groceries outside in the sun/heat. I’m an idiot 🤪 Then I was taking the… Read more »

Update from Darlene: 6/11/2024 Good morning everyone!  Thought I’d give an update on my awesome husband.  He had a pretty good workout with physical therapy yesterday. He put him through all the strength exercises. He was doing an evaluation since it’s been a month since his first physical therapy appointment. The testing for his strength went really well. Much better than a month ago, for sure. The therapist walked him further down the block and he did quite well.   His memory is still something to be worked on. Bob did say that his memory is getting better. And I agree.   He is getting so much better in forming… Read more »

Phone calls today – to get a electrician, to schedule cleaning service, to cancel security system monitoring at old house. More to make tomorrow. Electrican came today and we found out that the panel marked as “Generator” was actually a regular electrical panel and we didn’t look there (thinking it was only for use when using the generator). There was one switch thrown there and it was marked Kitchen! This panel was right underneath the others we did look at but… Sigh. We both felt really dumb. It turns out we have 4 fuse panels, instead of 3. But the… Read more »
