Hi ice, we are good at the moment but its one of those days that changes all the time, looking out now its lovely but take a breath and it will be pouring unsure . I was going to try putting out my towels again but I think it will just be a repeat of yesterday. Summer is the time I wash lots of thing that don’t need regular washing like net curtains but never got the long sunny days to do that, so I shall just stay dirty, lol ! sidewayslaugh blowkiss

Hello! Saturday I had a full but very good day! I left home around 7:30 AM to get chicken salad for lunch. After I arrived at my Mom’s house, put our lunch in the fridge for later and put away her other groceries, I took Mama’s car to her Honda dealer for the 9:30 AM airbag recall service, oil/filter change and NC inspection; as expected, it took 2 hours to complete everything. When the service was completed and paid for I asked to have her car appraised. The process went very well and the dealer decided to not only buy… Read more »

Hi Ardy! None of my chat friends knew I was selling my Mom’s car. In reality, her car should have been sold 2 years ago when her driver’s license could not be renewed due to her poor vision from Macular Degeneration.

Even though Mom could no longer drive, she still wanted her car sitting in the driveway for “security” but when I recently discussed this with my DM’s lawyer, I was reminded that the car just continues to depreciate and is at risk for vandalism. When I explained that to my Mama, and also said she has Guardian Angels protecting her, DM gave me the go ahead to finally sell her car. After the sale was completed, I told Mama that there’s someone out there she is now going to bless who needs a reliable car but can’t afford a brand… Read more »

Thanks Jenn❤️ I had taken some snacks with that I ate in the waiting room which helped me last until the 2pm lunch but I was more than ready to eat the delicious chicken salad I had picked up that morning.

All my Eagles are gone, I haven’t seen my White-tailed for two days now and next year I don’t believe they will be able to use that tree again, with 4 massive Eagles treading all over it I am not surprised ! bigfrown

That is sad Beryl. Hard when a season ends and we lose a cam we love to watch. Ardy said they closed Decorah yesterday until October I think.

I didnt use a dryer for probably the first 15-20 years of marriage, didnt even have one by choice. But, i really like it for towels as i dislike stiff towels. I still iron my clothes.

I suppose it was if they lived in the southern part of AZ. Northern AZ is much cooler with lakes and trees like northern MN.

I iron everything Ardy, happy to meet another one who irons….lol
They think I’m nutty at Bella’s I think when I talk about doing a ‘pile of ironing’…haha I didn’t know many people do not iron anymore. I have been looking for a summer dress and all of them are made of jersey or polyester or whatever so that it doesn’t wrinkle. I like a nice cotton or similar fabric dress.

I always have ironed my clothes. As a quilter, my iron is on the whole time I’m in my shop, you do have to iron lots when piecing a quilt.

No Jenn don’t buy polyester it doesn’t breath ! I have found this year that most dresses are made of polyester, trouble is cotton is now expensive and the younger generation don’t know about wearing cotton so don’t care ! My sheets are cotton, I can’t imagine sleeping in anything else ! But I don’t iron them, lol !

I do not like polyester. I buy cotton blouses and cotton shorts/capri’s and slacks too. The style of wearing the jeggings or whatever those leotards tight stretchy looking pants are is definitely not me. I was shopping yesterday and it looked like every woman had those on. None looked too good in them to be honest. If you wear a tunic top or something long over the butt area it isn’t so bad but none seem to do that. Looks like they are walking around in pantyhose to me. Personal choice of course but not my style

I like capris made of stretchy material, so comfy. I do wear leggings in the house with a big t-shirt on so it covers my butt. When i was younger i wore them out of the house as they were the style in the 80’s but i feel i am too old to wear them out now. Oh i do have some i wear with “dresses” though.
