Here is Myself's post on the other thread...

I hope you all are having a good weekend!!!

Hugs, Karen...



Home yesterday after five days in MA. Lovely memorial service. I now have a large flag all folded. All belongings dealt with, moved, donated, or tossed. My Aunt inherited most of my grandmother's belongings. They both were curious world travelers and had disposable incomes. We unpacked truck this AM--some seriously amazing furniture and the usual crystal, china, silver expected from a woman of her age and station (grandmother.) Might have a *faberge*--I see trips to experts in my future. The coolest thing I found, however, is a lady's turn-of-the-century watch on a grosgrain ribbon, engraved with grandmother's initials. We did not find as many letters and photos as I had hoped--I think many were tossed when she moved out of her house--the basement had flooded many times and there was a serious issue with mold throughout. However--the up side is that with my inheritance, I can get a new-to-me car. Sorely needed--as my old car is falling to pieces. Back to work tomorrow. Be well,all.

sadness. on top of mum going into care, another fall and uti and some infection in the knee my neighbour across lost her battle, she had a big stroke a week and a bit ago, just found out she since has passed. my sis is not having mum back. i have precluded her from her sons guardianship hearing. she is ok with this. not sure what sis has said to mum. just riding out the wave, no use in getting angry nor further frustrated as my projection will become rage. am using 2 stress balls, which hurt my arthritic hands.

Jamie so sorry for your loss.

I would like to share an app for the phone or computer. INSIGHT TIMER

lots of meditations, groups, music for resting, talks/pod casts. I adore the sight.

Just a soft place to go when it is all to much.

I found a creative self care 6 day course FREE on the web. Here is the link for the first day.
I am sure if you link into the face book page, you can have the course emailed to you also.
If anyone is interested.

Peace

thx for sending it trendy. guardianship granted. full. about 6-8 weeks for my youngest bro. the judge did the paperwork right there and then and granted the order as urgent. he was a no show. i was listened to and respected. his team were urged to get things moving now that they had the paperwork. i liked this. now i rest.

Jamie nicely done! Blessing for that judge,

Karen I am so glad you are feeling 'marvelous'.. The weather here today matches your feelings!

Dogs and I are out back.

I am waiting another week for flowers, weather to unpredictable still.

Have a good day all!

Windy here today...and we all know how I feel about windy conditions. Waah!

Been in a funk and know why...it will pass. Hope everyone had a nice Mothers' Day of those who celebrate it.

The hot pink azalea was stunning this year! The cooler temps were a big hit with the spring flowers! We're supposed to hit 90* mid week here. Ugh. Too soon!

Next up will be the peonies. They are loaded with buds this year. I'm excited!

The Korean lilac is finally blooming. Sadly, half of the trumpet vine pulled off the house and nearly crushed the lilac! The hummingbird will be disappointed as there will be fewer trumpets this year but at least it blooms on new growth so all is not lost.

So far, the drainage fix in the dog yard is working. No 'lake'. Not sure if I mentioned this already but, I bought a 'astro turf' area rug and put the Adirondak chairs on it, just to have a bit of green back there. The dogs love it! Nice little spot to lie down that is not dirt and rocks!

Cucumbers are hanging in there, lettuce is growing nicely, strawberry plants are doing well. No sign of germination from the sugar snap peas...yet. I still have to get the 'cherry' tomatoes and the one other type of tomato that seems to do well here.

Two of the clematis have exploded with blooms! The other two are taking their time, which is fine with me. One is energetically climbing the new trellis while the other seems to have taken a liking to the fence. I found 'Foxtail Lily' rootings at the garden center and am trying them in pots this year. At maturity, they can reach up to 7ft tall! The pots themselves are nearly 3 ft, so if they come up it should be magnificent! How I'll protect them from wind is beyond me at this point! ha ha

HI Pitmom hop your mood lights soon.

Here is a little reminder on how mindfulness can help with strong emotions.

It may not work for everyone, an it may not work each time. However, I am finding it more of a 'go to' skill more often than not.

I hope this helps some one

Yes, it is something that takes time and like I said not for all.

I am finding Insight Time app very helpful with the guided meditations and podcasts. So many different subjects, helpful no matter what is going on.

The app is free to down load

Bed is a safe place no doubt. Our bodies cry to stay there when processing stuff, over worked with stress and emotions. Let you body rest HT. You deserve it.

Peace and gentle hugs

Laundry, laundry and more laundry. Load #5 just ended and needs to be hung out. Load #1 is already off the line!

Grateful I have umbrellas to provide shade this time of day as I am taking my breaks outdoors!

I'm loving the blossoms of the Korean lilac. Not loving their perfume though...makes me think of the white flowers of a privet hedge that bees love. I'll admire it from upwind!

Hope everyone has a peaceful day.

New Jersey is working on a heatwave. Too hot, too soon.

Making things more difficult for me. I'm irritable (lack of sleep is also a contributing factor) and quarrelsome. I don't like having to retreat to the air conditioned bedroom already.

This is usually the best time of year for me but this year I'm finding myself with downward thoughts and struggling. There are things that need to be done...NEED to be done mind you...but it's too hot and humid and I can't breathe and have NO energy!

Usually, by the time the weather is like this, the tree is fully leafed out and there is cool shade. Not so this early and the umbrellas just aren't cutting it.

I'm not used to doing this battle at this time of year. Waah!

It was that way here for a couple of days Pitmom, today it is in the 40's. Hopefully will get up into the 50's later. Got down in the low 30's last night. Almost froze...

I picked up a couple of hanging baskets the other day. One is huge. All petunias. I love them, bright pink. The other is more pale pink with verbena and bacopa in it. I love the combination.

I got 12 tomato plants and a basil plant. Spicy Globe... Then I got a couple of orange cone flower plants which I probably shouldn't of as I don't know if the coneflowers I planted last year are going to come back. They say perennial but don't know if they are going to show up this year. The ones I got last year were beautiful red. We'll see. If nothing else I will have color for this year.

I hope you all are having a good day today. I plan to get outside later.

Hugs, Karen...

Karen, I read somewhere that hybrid cone flowers should be kept away from the 'original' native species. Can't remember where I read it of course, but you may want to research it.

In my experience, they are a hardy plant. Mine have even self seeded! Hopefully, you will have the same experience. Keep in mind that mine are natives. Had I put the hybrid in the ground, it might have faired fine, but I left it in a pot and it's gone.

My cucumbers failed. It's early enough to get more transplants or even start a pod. I'll be sure to relocate though. I think it was temperature related but I'm not going to risk that it was a disease.

Hey, Jersey Babe!

I mean, Pitmom.

I used to live in New Jersey, also, for a couple of years, when I was 5 and 6.

You mentioned sleep problems. You've come to the right place. Maybe.

I use 1 mg of Melatonin from the health food store, and, along with my anti-depressant and Lithium for my bipolar, I sleep like a baby.

I almost feel guilty when I wake up the next morning. Of course, with diabetes, I wake up about 5 times during the night.

But after waking up the next morning, I almost feel guilty for having made it through another night with some good sleep.

Oh, warm weather. Where I live, the grass started turning green and was growing in January, if it ever turned brown in the winter. The blooms were coming out in February.

So I think you're right, even Jersey is going to get a hot summer.

I remember my mother would fill up a barrel with water in the summer when we lived in Jersey, as they say. So much for a swimming pool. So summers were pretty hot even back then.

Yes, it is hot in Jersey. Does nothing to help my poison ivy.

I walk past it in the back yard. Whole left arm is attacked, 5th day. Went to doc Thursday am
Zanfel was not working as usual. The blisters got to deep and caused an infection . On antibiotics and prednisone. I can not use the script cream as it is sulfar based. My only drug allergy.

Today the swelling is down and you can see the darkness of the infection, directly along the vein line from inside of the wrist to inside of elbow. And it hurst like a... you know what!

Today thunderstorms are expected.
GOOD NEWS.
My neurologist on Wednesday upped my baclofen from 15mg to 30mg a DAY. Slowly of course. The hopeful outcome is that my average daily pain will be a level 3-4.

Weather is still a factor, sharp TN pain today and cluster starting.

Hope everyone is well and enjoying May. Memorial Day is just around the corner!!!

Peace

Pitmom, Thanks for the information on the hybrids. I have them next to a Shasta Daisy. I wouldn't say it was native though I do have wild daisies growing around the yard. Perennials are hard here because it gets so cold in the winter. I am in a super cold zone. I think 4. I am in a valley not far from the river so it always frosts here first. Even when it isn't suppose to.

Sorry about the cukes. I might get some plants. I forgot when I was at the green house. It is nice to have fresh cucumbers.

Trina, I hope the infection doesn't get too bad. (Knock wood) I have never gotten into poison ivy. Maybe I am imuned to it because I was in the woods so much as a kid. I hope that the medication increase helps with the pain. Wouldn't it be nice to have a "0"?

Hi TimTam... I hope you are having a good day.

Hello everybody and wishes for a nice day to all.

Time for a nap and then a shower.

Hugs to all!

Karen...
