Welcome Sue!! I love fall too! Miss the Northern crisp air and cool breezes, we will have to wait a couple more months for that. At least! I love sweaters but have a very minimum, don't get to wear them much.
I finally got my shower and ready to head out the door. I guess I'm going to go walking at a mall somewhere, explore some more. Hugs to all!

Barbara I hope you feel well soon. I hope to get my home minimalist-ish! ha ha! I picked out 3 tops in the rv I can live without - we'll see how I do. I have a list of things to get from the house this weekend.
Susan, I think I am getting tired of ironing and ready to get rid of a couple tops that need it. Have been taking DH's things to the cleaners for a while now.
Today is craft day at the rv park so if I am back in time I might join the ladies and say hello.

Good Morning/Afternoon! Very active thread this morning. Thanks for getting us started snicks, and Happy Birthday to Susan's DH. It is pretty humid for us today, but not humid at all compared to what it would be in Maryland. And, it is pretty warm -- should make it into the 90's again. I used to love the Fall -- leaves turning, wearing Fall clothes, etc., but we just don't have a regular "Fall" here in southern Arizona. I do miss it, but I don't miss the cold winters one bit.
Waves to Susan, Marijane, Kathleen, LindaR, Sue2, Barbara (good luck with your infusion) twinny, Jean (working), Arlene, Bernie, Rosa, Charlene, Gayle, Karen, pinky ann, and all of our posters and readers.
I had my osteoporosis shot this morning, and I asked the technician about my bone density test results. She said that she sent me a letter about them, but I asked her to look. All she said was that there was improvement from last year. That makes me very happy.
Ironing is a weekly thing with me -- normally Sunday afternoon. And, I don't mind it at all. In fact, ironing got me into watching football many years ago. In the old days, there wasn't much other than football on TV on Sunday afternoons. Anyway, I still enjoy football a lot, which is a good thing since it is such an important part of my grandchidren's life.
My back is hurting -- no idea why, but I'm trying to find ways to deal with the pain and move on. Current plan is to go to COSTCO today. I ended up doing some bush trimming yesterday, and now I have a bunch of branches on the ground and a bush that needs much, much more trimming. Don't know what possessed me to do the work, but maybe it was inspiration from some of you who have done so much yard work.
Hope everyone has a nice day!

Twinny BB is my favorite too although I like yo watch college basketball and my DH team......football the least I guess because I don't understand what's going on either.

It's another hot day; I got to use the pool for a little while yesterday and hope to again today. The water isn't as sparkling clean as it was, but I just read or nap on the float - I want to enjoy it as long as I can; I hate to see summer go.
I'm off in a little while; I have to pick up some things at Aldi, and also stop by the Christian bookstore - I asked the lady who owns it if she can donate a few things for the Ladies Night Out party that the chaplain in A-stan is holding as a morale booster for the female troops. I met the woman from my town's FB page who said she'd donate a couple of things. A couple of things??? She gave me a big shopping bag packed with stuff - everything from sunglasses to soaps to about a dozen things from BBW; that was really nice of her. I want to get the rest of the boxes mailed on Friday; so far I have four more ready to go.
Publix has both canned cat food and kibble on sale this week, plus it's Wednesday, so that's an extra 5% off. I think I'll drop the dogs off after my Aldi trip, then grab some chicken at the new Popeye's before I go to Publix and take my time browsing - I need some "me" time!
This new computer is very frustrating. Last night I got a notification that there were updates. There sure were - 114! I started them, and they took about 4-5 hours...then I got a message on the screen that they couldn't properly apply them, so they had to be undone...which was hours more. I still haven't gotten around to disabling the caps lock; I have the code, but it seems the registry is set up differently on this one. Since I couldn't do anything on the computer I did some more foraging through my jewelry and unopened beauty products and got a bunch more together for the troops. I also got an entire cozy mystery read while I waited.
Since finances have been tight I decided to use some things I came across in my jewelry armoir and have never used as gifts for the cousins whose birthdays are next month. I have a nice wristlet from Coach, as well as a cosmetic bag, both complete with dust covers; I also found a cute cat necklace by Ritz that I had gotten from the Q years ago; the receipt was still in it - what was I thinking, paying $60 for something I'd rarely wear? I never wore it al all! Now all I'll have to get is a couple of extra little things.
Hope your husband has a nice birthday, Susan; I love strawberry pie! The other day I was thinking about Chock Full O' Nuts, where I used to go with an aunt almost every week when she'd take me shopping. They had amazing pies, with real whipped cream, and the strawberry was my favorite. It's too bad they're gone; they also had incredible whole wheat donuts that were soooo good!
Marijane, my late husband's birthday - and our anniversary - was also on the 10th. I spend the day in mourning over the biggest mistake I ever made!
Welcome, Sue - hope to see you often. I've also met some of the ladies from the board, which was a lot of fun. It's a nice group. What part of the country do you live in?
Ironing??? I gave away my ironing board and have never missed it - I don't know why I even bought one when I moved here, as I don't remember using it; on the extremely rare occasion I have to iron out a few wrinkles I just put a towel on the dining room table. I have a old iron that the super from the apartment building I lived in when I first moved here gave me; the poor guy had a crush on me and was always giving me stuff. Anyway, it's an old-fashioned, heavy one, and I love it - it makes a great weapon! I guess it could have other uses too...
I guess I should get dressed and be on my way. Hi to everyone - have a blessed day!
