Hello all!

Kare - I am so jealous would love to see the castle! I need to get to Scotland. I do have family there and in Ireland somewhere.

Oeggy, so glad that you're feeling better!

Udi - We have a sort of jewish deli, has some food similar but other than that anything else is over an hour away

I have an eye appointment on the 1st. I think my constant headache maybe because I need a new prescription. Though I'm also fighting a sinus something or other.

The pictures I posted on FB are from our trip last month. I created an album and posted more than I did before.

Did I tell you that I caught a raging UTI (sorry OM). Felt the first twinge Monday afternoon then when I got home I saw the evidence that it was much more than that. So off to urgent care, doc said the whatever count was way higher than their equipment could measure. He questioned me that I must have know I had an issue way before that day, I said nope. He was flabbergasted with my answer. Said there's no way you've only had this less than a day. Only thing I can figure is that I have a very high pain tolerance and didn't really notice until today, but no evidence truly until Monday afternoon twinge and then visual realization after I got home from work.

Sister in law will be coming up next weekend to meet her new landlord and for us to sign the lease for her new place. Then next month we have reservations at a San Diego County park, we're taking the truck and trailer down and checking on Cathy to see what we'll need to do in September go get her completely moved out. May have to call 1-800 got junk LOL She has been working on getting the house clean/cleared up. Just very time consuming. I also got the paperwork started to get the title in the truck transferred so we can sell it. Hoping to be able to use those funds to help fund the move.

Well that's my book for now. Have my usual hair and nail appointments today, it's also pedicure day too! Woo Hoo. We are also going to complete the paperwork to purchase my car. Lease is up. May the last payment earlier this week, our credit union gave us a great interest rate and going through them instead of the dealer is a lot less hassle, no "inspection" needed.


Take care, I'll be checking in.

Lunch time, I got a piece of pizza from downstairs.

It's still rainy and cooler here. I opened the windows for some fresh air.

Good Saturday Morning
How do I know it is Saturday? The newspaper puts the Sunday ads in the Saturday paper. LOL
Not much doing here. We will think about going into the pool but believe me it is so hot out there it is hard to imagine sitting anywhere but in the water.
Will be around and checking in on our sick little girls.
Yes Kare...Terry was so cute in his kilt.

It's a pleasant evening here, sitting on the deck, having a tini

I did some laundry and some vacuuming and not much else.

Slept kinda late, trying to shake the last of this crud.

We're grilling Mahi Mahi for dinner.

I need a pedi, I'll have to figure out when to go, maybe sometime this week.

I opened the windows a couple days ago when it was cool and rainy and so far I haven't had to close them yet. It's nice to have some fresh air.

I'm around, iz

Hi - Iz glad your feeling a bit better it is nice and cool here too - the rain is just starting here so hopefully it will stay cool for a few days.

Finally picked up Lisas car so I will make an attempt at going out tomorrow - still coughing just a bit so taking it easy

Lisa called me they are having a great time - tomorrow they will be going to the Elizabethian islands off the coast of Massachusetts I can't remember the name of the one they are going too starts with a C they have a restaurant and a few house in the this island it is very isolated - I read where the beach changes every year so it should be kind of interesting I guess they take the dinghy in.

Be back tomorrow.

Good morning

Well we should be enroute to the airport but our flight is delayed 8 hours argh. Got up at 5 and poor Doug as well.. thankfully he’s gone back to bed but terry and I are sitting in the living room watching the town below wake up drinking coffee. It hasn’t left Toronto yet so who knows if it will be even longer, going to be a long day ......

We had a glorious time away and lollygagged our way home yesterday through the highlands with winding roads and pretty little villages nestled amongst. Scotland is very beautiful and I’m grateful to see more of where my father was born. The castle was huge fun with stunning gardens that went on for miles full of flowers, fruits, berries , herbs and bunnies. Just lovely. Everyone here has gone above and beyond to show us the best time we could have ever hoped for.

Sorry you were almost down for the count as well Erri ..
Goodness , some rough waters for our little group of late. Hope everyone is back on track soon!

I’ll pop back hopefully from home tomorrow!
