Good morning! Hot and humid day ahead here! My leg still looks awful but the large area of swollen hard skin that extended beyond the red area is going away. Busy day ahead for me! Wishing all a great day doubleheart

Did you mean this one Ardy? I am on the far right leaning on sis Barb’s chair, Jaci is beside her and sis Deena is on the far left. She is 12 years older than I, Barb is 10 years older, Jaci is only 2 years older. Sis Audrey not in picture as she was the photographer.

Good morning Beryl, Jenn, Ardyth, Kathy. A very cool start to the day a top temp today 18c we could certainly do with that Indian summer.lol We are having some landscaping done and they start tomorrow, just praying the rain keeps off. Beryl I hope you are feeling more yourself this morning. Off to Chippenham to see my wifes SIL soon and her money we are told by the solicitor has nearly reached the bottom limit where the council cannot take any more, they must leave an amount of £23,500 in her bank account. Then we are in a different… Read more »

Good morning ice, that is sure going to be tough with SIL. I didn’t realize she was still in her home with private care. I worked for a Home Health Care Agency part time before I retired. It is very costly I know $$$$$. Truthfully, only the very wealthy were able to do so. I do hope it will go as well as possible. Sorry for you and your wife. bigfrown

Hi Jenn…As I said above to Ardy it might well be we will have to make the decision for her to go in a home.
Then we will have to sell her house, they can also use that money from the house to pay for her care until it reaches the sum of money I quoted. So in this country it is best not to own your own house have very little money to your name and they will then cover your care costs until you peg out. cry .

Hi Ice
I am trying to figure out your post. So,it sounds like she is still at home with help which they will no longer [ay for.
Next step is to move her? Then they will pay for her to live? If her mind isnt good now maybe she will agree to move….who has to make that choice? Your DW?

Hi Ardy….The powers to be can only take so much of her money to pay for a live in carer after her bank account reaches that sum they can no longer get her to pay for her carer.
We have power of attorney so if push came to shove we could go against her wishes and she would have to go in a home of the councils choosing.
So more problems in the future. sad

It is never easy and they dont understand you are only looking out for them! They need to be taken care of.

Exactly that Ardy, but a difficult decision to make when they want to stay in their house. cry

I wish I did, they always seem to have the musty smell to me. Well, they grow in the shade in the woods so that would make sense.

When they are raw they do smell like that but soooo good when sauteed.

I should give them a try sometimes. I have tried in the past but they have a weird texture to chew, kind of rubbery ….eeek I don’t think I can do it. shockedcat

I have missed this year the wild birds that live in the Bay, its part of the whole scene that cam person chose to leave out this year, how i used to love those moments ! i have pics of the seal a couple of years ago that had a ball in the bay catching the fish ! I know I am just a misery but I have been going through the hundreds of pics I have of the area and the great camera work we used to have , where did it go and most important why !

I have missed seeing the bay and the camera panning also Beryl. I don’t know if it started with not letting boats be on the cams, I’m not even sure if that is a fact about the boats, or something I read from someone. The cormorants are such a joy to watch. I see them all the time when we go down to the ocean. Love them spreading their wings and drying them. doubleheart

The bite area looks worse ( darker red/almost purple ) but as of yesterday it no longer hurts or itches.

Good morning, it’s a wee bit nippy at 53 degrees. I like the cool crisp feeling in the mornings now, you can step out and take a deep breath and it’s so refreshing. Will be warming up to mid 70’s and beautiful sunshine. I went off shopping myself yesterday and had a great time. I love going through little local gift shops and boutiques that Denny isn’t to fond of. Much nicer to go and take my time. I had a big chocolate chip cookie and delicious cookie at the bookstore coffee shop and a delicious sandwich at the deli… Read more »
