We got home late after a great time.

Thursday, August 21, 2014

I do have pictures. TERRI's DH has shown me how to do some other things on my tablet and he was very helpful and patient.

DH and I were able to get a room at the same MOTEL and we had the maximum time. We did some other gardens close by. If we did the Botanical it would have been way too long in the cars. Instead we walked and took pictures and tomorrow I will concentrate and hopefully have a great blog of our meeting with MERRILEE and TERRI' This has been our first overnight this year and it was fun and relaxing and I just feel so much better.

We are hoping to get together in the Spring if not sooner.

I am so happy I found Spark and my Spark friends. Pat in Maine.

    That is so nice that Terri's hubby helped you. I do best with people showing me instead of telling me.

It sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. You needed some time away and a break from every day work. It's great that you have so many gardens close by to choose from. I look forward to the pictures.

    Sounds like you have a really good time. It is fun getting together with Sparkfriends. Last year my hubby and I made a car trip to Wisconsin to meet Barb and her hubby and are planning another trip this October. Barb is every bit as great in person as she is on Spark and her hubby is such a sweetie. He and my hubby really hit it off. We had such a great time and we are really looking forward to this trip to see them. The time just goes by too quickly doesn't it.

Have a lovely Friday and enjoy the weekend!!

We have met up with two other Spark friends,

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

This blog might not go through. I hope it does.

My Spark friend and I are struggling with the site and we have decided it must be the motel internet or Spark. We had a great day and we will catch up with you tomorrow.
We went to Zumba the other 2 are instructors and I have never gone to a class.
I was about to walk out and instead I decided to stay on the edge and I walked in place and did some other moves and for an hour I just kept walking . I have11965 steps and before the class began was just over 3,000.

That means I can do that at home and it will be great. HUGS Pat I hope this little piece of information is music to my ears.

    My friend and I went to a Zumba class and we couldn't keep up and ended up laughing at ourselves and just moving in place. Everyone in the class was so much younger than us but that did not stop us from trying it. It was so much fun but we decided to just do dancing at home. Just cannot keep up with it. Same reason I stopped doing the exercise videos on the fitness channel on cable. At one point they had Leslie Sansone and she kept the pace but explained what she was doing BEFORE starting it. Then they took her off and the new person was hard to keep up with the changes. Same thing for the dancing videos. So now I just put on the music channel and dance. I am so glad that you tried it and can do at home!!!

Have a lovely Thursday!!

We have met with them for several years and this year we almost had to call it off but at the last minute we could get together so now I am really trying to get to bed and I know it will be a very long day. It will also be an awesome day all four of us get along together.

I am taking my camera and hope to get good pictures .
We will look at some lighthouses and then visit the Botanical GARDENS, So much in one day will be a whirlwind but better that than not seeing each other. Off to bed Pat in Maine. emoticon

TODAY I SPUN MY 1500th STREAK LOGGING IN DAILY.

Monday, August 18, 2014

It has been a good day. I spun the wheel for the 1500 times. Some days my computer was down I would use DH or an y one I could find.
My log ins are my go to, every morning. After my fasting blood sugar I spin my wheel.
If we are heading out I can grab my tablet and spin it then I can feel great.

Today I have moved lots of boxes and furniture. Our son is happy we can change the basement rooms. It will be better for them but when we are done we will have a 5 bedroom house and that will give us more equity.

I walked almost 7 miles 6.88 and I took over 17,000 steps. Walked the rail trail. The our son woke up and I told him my plan to make them more comfortable and give us much more closet space.
My sewing machines I could not get to in comfort so I checked it all out and he loves the idea. I have cleared the washroom I have lots of Totes of fabric to go through and find some place to donate it.
We brought our washer and dryer up to out bathroom but I kept the louvered doors. They fit in the basement and DH and our son will hang them tomorrow. The rod has been in place since they came it was my original sewing room and I had a huge mirror there and I hung clothes behind it. With the doors on it will be a much nicer place to be. There is a door they use that opens out to the driveway where they can park and in just a few minutes they are in to their own room with their own key. They come and go as they please. We have the garages at the back of the house and it is close to the house so we have an easy access also.
Our Grand daughter's Piano is in our living room so she comes up stairs and does her practice. She is well beyond just hitting the piano keys she has been playing for a long time
so we are being entertained.
The dogs we never thought we would learn to love them. They were strays and they were found together. When they were turned in by our DIL's brother in Las Vegas he wanted to keep them together so he took them to our DIL and after a month they were theirs. The police left them with them for the entire month and after many showings of the two of them on the TV pet channel and no-one came forward. DH and I love them.
It is very late I had wanted to write a big blog about my Spark log-ins and how I am motivated by it but once again it is the day by day things that just come up.

HUGS Pat in Maine.

    I cannot tell you how jealous I am of that spin number!! Early in the summer I was at 996. I could hardly wait to hit 1000. Then one day I opened the page and it said I had zero spins. My streak was broken by a computer glitch!!! emoticon I was very upset and tried everything I knew to get those spins back but no luck. I posted my distress that day and more than one person said that had also happened to them. So, here I am starting over. emoticon I, obviously, am still unhappy about it.
Sounds like a great plan you have for the downstairs family!! I'm sure they appreciate all of your efforts. So loving of you to do all of this to make them more comfortable. Is Emily going to be home schooled again this year? I know what you mean about those dogs!! They wiggle themselves right into your heart!!

So happy too to see that your son's dogs have stolen your heart. I have 3 so you know I am a dog lover. Two were rescued from the SPCA and my son's dog was given to him by his girlfriend's cousin whose family did not have time for him anymore. He loves living with us although the two other dogs are much older and try hard to ignore him when he wants to play. I try to restrict his playtime in the house because he is 150 pound bull mastiff who thinks he is a 20 pound lap dog. But I do think 3 is my limit.

Your house renos sound so great. You have such great ideas!!! Good luck with it all!!

I am on another roll. We have to make better space in a VERY SMALL HOUSE.

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I have been wanting to do some sewing especially for myself an the family.
My machines were not in the least accessible so I have looked around and thought I had a good idea.
Our ranch house is 30 by 40 , we did add on to our bedroom so we both have walk in closets and it really helps. I actually wish they were bigger but we are always on a budget.
We are very happy with our large master bedroom.

Our living room was too small so as soon as we - and I do mean DH and I decided to make a big playroom for the boys. We put in a false floor. I painted it and then I painted ROADS on it for three boys with Match box cars. I painted the roads we drove over daily, the toll bridge and two rotaries. We had many rotaries "ROUND-ABOUTS" as we called them in UK. DH loved it and the boys did too all 4 of them. ages 1, 6 and 8 and about 35 -My DH.
DH is in to railroads but he has a model RAILWAY since all his trains are from UK and all steam locos and we loved them. I made little houses when my mother brought him cardboard kit houses so it was a family affair.
A few years later we needed more space and less roads. We covered it with rug and made it in to thee rooms and the wash room. Our G.D. from Las Vegas calls it the concrete room Unfinished concrete walls and concrete floor. She is correct especially since we put the washer and dryer in to the upstairs bathroom. I like that, so does DH.

Fast forward we made the bedrooms and as the boys left we took over those rooms. Washroom unchanged, Bathroom in basement, one bed room was my little gym and DH had trains round the walls.

We had a problem with the downstairs toilet. No plumber could fix it. We hired a plumber who dug up the area round the basement said the house gasket must have a problem. To get his equipment in we took down 2 Pine trees we loved and paid dearly to remove.
The plumber drove his back hoe in to the hole and it took a real mess taking it out. The Bill was obscene and as soon as we flushed the toilet it was just the same. The bill was in the thousands and nothing changed, I missed my trees but he tried.

That winter after the thaw we had our first flood in our basement. The Plumber dug out clay and put in fill so the water table just comes up the drain and in to the basement.
DH and I love the false floor and it works like a charm.
We did have a contractor to come in and dig us a Sump pump. This works well but it needed to be bigger so after these heavy rains we do get some water on the floor. The good thing about this, I have a VERY clean basement floor. Woo-Hoo.

Today I decided since our family will not be able to move I am going to make three rooms and the wash room will be my sewing room.

I have had a n umber of ideas and ran my idea through our sons opinion and he loves the idea. DH and I are going to make it happen. If we sell it is a five bedroom house on almost 1/4 acre so we think doing it for the family will give us equity and looking nicer so here I come getting ready to do some carpentry. Way to go. Pat in Maine.

    Pat, do I understand that you are thinking of selling your house? Or just making it better? Which ever way you go it will be work. We have a water problem in our basement/den. Can't get anyone to come and take care of it. Our landlady will be hiring my DH to do what he can. He's never done a sump pump before but he has a good idea how things are to go. Also she wants a different window in the basement/den. Large enough so some can get out if need be. HUGS, Terry

I used to have it in the "guest bedroom" but that is now Erik's I don't need an office so much, but I need to make it so I can use it for a guest room and it's too small to serve as "guest/office/sewing room" . I do sew on the dining room table as for the most part Erik and I eat in the kitchen and when we number under 7 people too. Otherwise I have to keep putting everything away.
Glad you figured it out.
Did you get one of those toilets that flushed up? One of our friends in Ohio installed one of those in his basement bathroom.
