Today will be the last of the 70 degree weather here. The weekend was fantastic! Although, I missed the meteor shower. We were up at 4 a.m. with the dogs...took the time to 'look up' but, didn't see a single shooting star.

Got a lot of shopping done, as usual. Then started working on the 'Ursula' costume and baked an apple pie last night.

May have to cancel morning plans. Woke up with more back pain than usual. Having a rough go of it.

Hopefully, the Public Works department will call today about the edging.

Still seeing Monarch butterflies! So glad there are still zinnias blooming and the butterfly weed is still providing nectar for them, too! I may cut a bouquet of mums before the heavy rains and strong winds come tonight. Tomorrow the landscape should look quite different!

Hello this mild Monday.
Overcast...but reasonable temperatures today.

Good morning, Pitmom
I didn't even try to see the meteor showers last night Wonderful memories from previous years are enough. In a sailboat...no land or lights anywhere except in the heavens.

No 'plans' for today. Son will let me know shortly if I need to go to work. Hope not.

Hope all have a relaxing day. See you tomorrow

Raining here today and suppose to rain a lot more, possible flooding. Though I have very sandy soil so I am hoping I wont have to worry about it. We needed rain but not this much. Ha!!! What do they say? When it rains, it pours...

Pitmom, I am not positive but I think there will be meteor showers till the end of the month. So maybe you will see one yet. I am glad you have one more nice day. Yay for the butterflies!!! Glad you still have some color.

Joyce, I am glad you too are having a nice day weather wise. I hope you don't have to work. Ha!

Have a nice day all. I am going to make a huge pot of chicken noodle soup.

Hugs, Karen...

yes, meteor showers are to be seen across the country, there is a map on Yahoo to show which parts of states will be more visible. We have not seen any as of yet.
Although with the city of Philadelphia so close and lights from schools and communities, hard to see the stars, to around 2am.

Finally getting some relief in my head pain, level hanging around a 6. I can push through to sew some, run an errand or two. Paint some. Load a wash... But all wipe me out.

Contacted doc today, per haps he will increase with afternoon dose.

Hope everyone is well

Peace all

Trina,

I am glad you are getting some relief from the pain. I don't know how you do it, I am glad you do. I can't do that much. Sewing, well, can be fun too.

I hope your day goes well today.

Joyce,

Soup will be done in a couple of hours. Ha!!!

Will call you!

Hugs, Karen...

Thanks for asking, Karen! Truth is, I'm not doing too well - a combination of life stuff and my depression being exacerbated by this stoopid sleep condition. I'm also titrating off one set of drugs and going on to another, so there's all the fun associated with that process too.

The nice thing is that I'm pretty aware of all the stuff I'm feeling, and know those feelings will end eventually. Had a couple of "I'm done with all this junk" moments, but I'm able to ride those low times out. I really do miss my brain running on all cylinders.

In fact, right now I'd settle for 6 cylinders out of 8. smile

Gee F27

so sorry you are dealing with so much.

Have you tried down loading INSIGHT TIMER on your phone? it is free. Lots of short or longer podcasts, talks, meditations on all kinds of subjects.

I particularly like Sarah Blodin. you can check her out on Youtube. She does a Live Awake series.

You are my thoughts.
Peace and strength

Changing meds can be tough, especially if it is antidepressants. Then you are praying the new one works. I hope it gets easier for you.

I am still doing meditation to get to sleep. I still wake up a good bit, but it initially gets me to sleep. Staying there can be a problem. But I have the luxury of being able to nap through out the day if I need to.

I hope that the depression eases for you. It always takes time, if that helps. Keep your chin up and keep giving it all you got. Don't give up.

Hugs, Karen...

Hello this rainy Tuesday
Finally getting some moisture...We need it. However, don't need the wind. Overnight we had a three hour power outage probably caused by falling trees or wires.

Kitty just came inside and waited for the towel to be 'dried'....What a spoiled guy.

This is a 'work day'...so time for me to shower....no help from Kitty with a towel.

See ya tomorrow

You dried kitty off but kitty wont dry you off. Ha Ha...

Same with my dog Jasmine, she goes outside and potties. She gets treats for doing so. I go potty, I get nothing... Ha... Maybe it is because I don't do it outside???

Rainy here today too but not as much as yesterday. We had a lot of wind last night. Scary... I don't like the wind. I like a breeze, but not hard wind.

Have a good day at work Joyce.

Hugs, Karen...

This morning, there was a nice warm breeze coming through the 'north' window in the kitchen. Now, a much cooler wind, gusting at times, coming through the 'west' windows. Very 'Octoberish' outside, for sure!

I finally heard back from Public Works...not a very satisfying conversation...just 'an assurance' that the crew will be told to be 'more careful'. Pthhhh! I'm not laying any bets.

Will be taking the costume pieces to the neighbor for the first fitting today. I won't know where to place the tentacles until it's on her. They came out fantastic! Black with a purple underside, stuffed with plastic grocery bags, stitched strategically to 'curl' them and rows of suction cups (cut from a bath mat) glued to each side. I also picked up a green feather boa as a 'seaweed' shawl! Hair and make up will wait for party day. Oh, and I still have to locate the necklace!

For my grandson, I picked up the material for the 'coat' and multi colored electrical tape to do the designs on it. Unfortunately, I threw out my old curtain rods...one would have made a good 'staff' for him. Guess I'll have to use a broom handle and wrap it with duct tape.

'Gloomy' days like this, just before Halloween, are perfect for creating costumes!

Windy Wednesday folks...but still mild temps ('till tomorrow)

Karen, your post about Jasmine's outdoor 'cleansing' gave me a chuckle.
My kitty doesn't require treats for that 'job'. I've got an emergency box, but it's never been used in the ten years he's been my feline...is it time to change the litter?

Sorry you're having it tough, Jamie
Maybe Karen and I need to give you a 'treat'.

~ Joyce

p.s.
Still waiting for some chicken soup. How did it turn out?

The chicken soup turned out good except that I dropped the bag of noodles in and now I have to remove some, but it was tasty. I will freeze some.

It is cold here today, raining here and there. Tomorrow suppose to be partly sunny, but it has already snowed yesterday morning early. And will probably snow tonight or tomorrow night, going to be real cold. I guess old man winter is on his way.

Went shopping today. Spent way too much but was out of most everything. So I had to stock up.

I hope you have a nice day Joyce, Jamie, I hope that things get better and that you are getting restful sleep right now.

Take care everybody.

Hugs, Karen...

Awww, F27, how sweet of you to sing to me!

Homemade chicken noodle soup! That was what I usually asked my Mom to make me for my birthday dinner! Thanks for bringing the memories to mind!

Snow is a four letter word!

HT, sorry you've hit a rough patch.

Hope everyone has a peaceful 24 hours.

Cloudy and cool Thursday...
Maybe I should take a nap like F27 and HT

Pitmom...you really are working hard on the Halloween costumes...wish we could see the final results,
...... sound delightful

Karen...the extra noodle chicken soup still is tempting. Had to open a can of Campbell's for lunch.

Busy day for the animals ...just saw a fox run through. I used to feed them. They like marshmallows.
Also a lot of deer under the crabapple tree, AND very exciting to have a male deer, with a large rack trot by very near my deck. Usually just have the females and their offspring around. I love it here in the woods.

See you tomorrow

~ Joyce

happy belated birthday.

HT so sorry to hear you are down in the dumps and hating life.
But life is beautiful even if we do not see it.

Can you do walkies to a park or a play ground?
Nothing like nature or sound of children laughing to life ones spirits..

Perhaps, take a pot of tea over to your new neighbors.

Just some thoughts..

This pass mate, role on with the waves.

Peace and strength

A brief Friday hello to all

Sunny, but cool. Oh well, at least no snow. Hope yours didn't amount to much, Karen.

Stocking up on some Mechanical soft foods tomorrow. Teeth get yanked on Monday. As much as I wish otherwise...but I'm in pain, and nothing (left) will be better than something (hurting).

Just being curious (all right...nosy). What temperatures do you set to heat your home day and night during the fall and winter months? I wonder if I'm too austere.

My heat is 62-64°F at night and 66-68°F daytime. Unless it's really damp out, in which case I might put it a bit higher in the daytime.
