August 2018 $50 Your Way Giveaway!!

Hello Peanuts!!! HOLY GUACAMOLE Batman Idaho get’s HOT in the summer!! Temperatures in the high 90’s and 100’s. With no air conditioning……… Yup, started this post right off with a whine. I really shouldn’t whine at all, the guy that is replacing the siding is outside all day in this heat!! YOUCH!!!

Alice was delivered by Uncle Zac on Saturday. We drove him back to the airport the 31st. Alice and I get our three weeks together now. I’ve missed this baby!!!!!!!!!! She flew into my arms and I got the best hug EVER!!!

This post isn’t making much sense because THIS kid has no patience for The Non working on her blog so I’m making this short and sweet. I will update the blog with pictures of the remodeling process later on. Just not while someone is giving me the stink eye saying “COME ON NON”………. so gotta go!!!  Wish me luck little Peanuts! I think it’s going to be a LONG 3 weeks!!!

  12. Tamra Phelps says:

    You must be over the moon to see Alice. I can’t wait to hear about what mischief you guys get into, lol.

    Our day was great we went swimming for a few hours with some friends.

  18. Chris Ann says:

    I am tired since this day started 37 minutes ago it turned to Aug 2nd! Yesterday, I learned that some friends had to be evacuated due to a forest fires…I so hope their ranch isn’t consumed by the fire…It is past my bedtime now…I need sleep.

  19. Tammylyne says:

    It is my Friday, yippeeee!! Tomorrow I get to take my niece to a circus thanks to an online win! So excited

  20. Kate Sarsfield says:

    It’s my niece’s birthday today so I smuggled her her annual secret treat: Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups! She let a bucket & string down from her bedroom window & up they went. We’ve been doing this since she was 4 and she’s now 22. I’d love to know what her neighbours think!

  21. Michele Soyer says:

    Having a bit of a problem with this page today.. not sure if my comment went thru..

  22. Michele Soyer says:

    Cannot get any gardening done in this.. but the hydroponics are working well… all the greens are growing brilliantly…cucumbers and tomatoes also in another set….All my zucchini are lost to the rain though…so new seedlings are coming up to try again….next goal re-establishing my husbands aquaponic system….

  23. Cathy French says:

    All I can say about today is Headache! Another one!

  24. It is pouring again… and it’s making me very lethargic. Don’t wanna do anything so I am not… lol. 😀

  25. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I have been kind of lazy today. I think it is the rain making me that way. I hope your new house shaping up the way you want!

  26. Got a haircut, then errands. Quiet evening at home.

  27. shelly peterson says:

    I had a busy day with appointments. My grandson is back from a week with his dad. Yay!

  28. Kate Sarsfield says:

    It’s hot & sticky today (well, for Ireland) so I’ve cancelled my plans to drive into town and I’ll just have a lazy day instead!

  29. Cathy French says:

    My never ending headache is now moving into an ear infection I fear. Time to call the dr.

  30. The sun came out today so I worked outside all day. I am tired but I got a lot done. Gonna rest this weekend. 🙂

  31. Dana Rodriguez says:

    More and more rain here.. hot and humid. I hope you are having fun with Alice! 🙂

  32. TammyLyne says:

    Had an awesome day! Got to take my niece to the circus with tickets I won. She had sooo much fun!

  33. I had a really fun day unexpectedly hanging out/running around town with a friend.

  34. shelly peterson says:

    I had a long busy day. I went to dialysis and helped my daughter prepare for my grandsons birthday.

  35. Kate Sarsfield says:

    It’s a long weekend in Ireland & I have absolutely no plans at all. My day is a blank canvas!

  36. Tamra Phelps says:

    Sick most of yesterday, just the ulcerative colitis I was left with after my illness. Still, one of the more painful days I’ve spent with UC. Blech.

  37. JEAN norton says:

    I lost my mom in January.still trying to move on.

  38. Had a great evening with my friend. Dinner and then Hamlet with her granddaughter playing Hamlet.

  39. Beautiful sunny day. Worked outside and then came in. Now I am watching the 80’s classic Body Heat. Very good movie! I think it aged well.

  40. Michele Soyer says:

    Yes the day is sunny and just plain gorgeous… have my to-do list ( very short) then a Sunday to relax, reflect ( who am I kidding) listen to great music and read….Have a bit of sewing to do which I am terrible at but a patch is a patch not a ballgown and a letter to write….love the fact that there are some people to whom you actually sit down and hand write a letter.. old school I know but I do enjoy it.. Have a glorious Sunday all!

  41. shelly peterson says:

    I am tired. I had a long but great day yesterday at my grandsons birthday party. Today we are heading to the lake.

  42. Tamra Phelps says:

    It’s a lazy Sunday here. Even in a place like this, not much happens on Sunday, lol.

  43. Kate Sarsfield says:

    It’s hot & oppressive, great for headaches and not much else. Still, got sheets to wash & dinner to prep and like Michele, some sewing to do. I bought the most wonderful black knee-length dress that is covered in sequins of different sizes & some of them need a bit of attention. Black nail polish works better than thread & is much easier too. Especially when the dress cost less than the postage!

  44. It’s my Sunday Fun Day! I plan to rest and rejuvinate for the upcoming week! 🙂

  45. am I the only one that gets anxiety on Sundays..all I think about all day is ughhh tomorrow starts a long week ahead 🙁

  46. shelly peterson says:

    I had a fun day at the lake. Great people and good food.

  47. Michele Soyer says:

    The dress sounds lovely.. do love sequins..

  48. Michele Soyer says:

    Taking a shopping day today… out and about to a few shoppes especially the garden and feed ….brilliant sunshine and a cool breeze….

  49. TammyLyne says:

    Can I vent Connie..last night I talked to my brother and asked him if he started the paperwork, you know what he told me?? I have to do whats best for her and she told me she wants to go home. I said she is 6!!!! OMFG this poor child has idiots for parents and the state does nothing. She leaves me in 2 weeks to go home and I am sick with worry

  50. Kim Avery says:

    Today is going to be another hot scorcher of a day so I’m heading out early to run my errands. I’ve decided laundry can wait! Surely don’t want to be in a laundry mat today!

  51. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I’m taking Mum to Dad’s grave later to give it a tidy-up and then we plan to paint some outside furniture.

  52. Cathy French says:

    I’ve had better days but I’ve also had worse so I’m pushing through this day awaiting bedtime.

  53. Went out shopping today…. Not a lot of people out. Just how I like it… lol. It was a good day. 🙂

  54. Tamra Phelps says:

    Still giving physical therapy everything I have, lol. I’m determined to walk out of here.

    • Kate Sarsfield says:

      It’s just another day of the usual humdrum routine … however I am going to the theatre on Thursday so that’s something to look forward to!

  55. Good swim class. Took the Black Panther movie back to the library. Most excellent movie.

  56. shelly peterson says:

    I had a busy weekend. I am very tired today.

  57. TammyLyne says:

    Kate thank you! I appreciate that. I have one more trick up my sleeve, keeping my fingers crossed

  58. Cathy French says:

    Going to go for a small grocery trip this afternoon then start some laundry. Nothing too pressing today.

  59. Michele Soyer says:

    Spent the morning and early afternoon re-doing the garage.. I know cleaning and tidy up is not really sorting thru and re-arranging.. well I took my time and did that…eventually I will paint the concrete floor but not this month…moved on to painting some outside work tables and using some old never opened vinyl tile to cover the top of the workbench.. pleased with the results….

  60. Today was pretty.. unspecutacular. And the day went by pretty quickly. I am never bored though. 🙂

  61. Good SPARK group today at Chatfield. We took a walk, saw the dye garden and watched wool being spun.

  62. shelly peterson says:

    I had a nice day. Went to dinner for my grandsons birthday.

  63. Today is good; the children have not been fighting so far.

  64. Kim Avery says:

    I guess I can say it’s good I’m alive! I have had a terrible week so far due to a window air conditioning unit that leaked & soaked the bedroom rug! Used every spare towel & blankets to soak up as much as I could….so glad my husband is a pack rat this time! BUT it’s been raining ever since & said towels/blankets are never going to dry on the line outside!

  65. TammyLyne says:

    I have a day off!! Well not really but I gotto sleep an hour later :p I have to take my 19 year old for her permit, she is finally wanting her drivers licence. Then I have to come home and catch up on bills, make a few important phone calls and clean my room lol

  66. For some reason tired today. It looks like it is going to rain and do we need it.

  67. Cathy French says:

    A bit overcast today but I think a day when its not snowing is a great day!

  68. Tamra Phelps says:

    A little under the weather today (thanks, ulcerative colitis, lol.) Am I the only one or has anyone else noticed there are no share buttons on p. b. & whine–you know, at the top or bottom of the page, to share it on Facebook, Twitter, etc.??? Have you decided to get rid of them, Connie? Or is it just my browser??

  69. Tired today….. got a lot of work done and my back is killing me. I am just gonna sit and rest for the rest of the day.

  70. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I woke up really late (even for me!) after a bad night but still managed to catch up on chores & finished painting the outside furniture.

    • Michele Soyer says:

      You have to learn to take it a bit easier.. in this case “the show does not have to go on ” take care of yourself Kate…

      • Kate Sarsfield says:

        My ‘bad nights’ are euphemisms for Mum needing help at all hours and she won’t remember anything about next day. So you see, for the time being at least, this show must go on!

  71. Good swim class. Then grocery trip. How come I have to go to the grocery so often?

  72. shelly peterson says:

    Another hot long day. I am tired, as usual.

  73. TammyLyne says:

    Welll l did not sleep a wink last night. Told my brother he needs to step up and any father that would allow their child to be terrorized by another man to the point that their 6 year old child needs therapy is sad. Then I was told I would never see my niece again 🙁 I hate the state does nothing, the ware presented with video proof of child abuse (the baby being thrown into a cold shower fully dressed as the mom recorded it and laughed as this little thing stood crying) She has such bad night terrors is terrified of her step father cause she witnessed the mom beaten so bad by him she was left bleeding on the floor, yet the state does nothing. Sorry Connie this is my only place to vent but thank you for allowing me to share my sadness and outrage

    • Michele Soyer says:

      I have no words for this…..this must not go on.. where are the agencies that can help…so sorry to hear this….

    • Kate Sarsfield says:

      Sweet Jesus, this is appalling. I’ve worked with children from abusive homes and the damage caused is enormous, as you know. Do not give up, plague the authorities with phone calls & messages until someone there sees sense. I hope you get some release at least being able to share on here, I know the rest of us do!

      • Thank you guys so much! Sometimes I just get so sad so frustrated that I dont know where to turn to and thank god for this blog because I know I can vent here without the fear of my brother or her mother could see. I appreciate the support. After that video was posted child services was called by 11 different people. CPS has been called to the home 9 times for different instances, my state CPS has recommended that the child be taken away from the mom but her state CPS does nothing 🙁 My state CPS worker says they have no jurisdiction, its just so sad and she goes home to that mess in a week and my brother will not let me see her anymore because I called him out for allowing his child to be abused

  74. Michele Soyer says:

    By the time I cam up yesterday I was a bit tired but today will be an easier day… the only work I have to do is start seeds and fill the hydroponic systems.. now on to the aquaponics!

  75. Kate Sarsfield says:

    What’s the difference between hydro & aqua, I wonder? Anyway, my turn… Another ‘bad night’ but managed to get back to sleep afterwards and, once Mum’s had her dinner, I’m hopping in the shower & getting ready for a night at the theatre! Can’t wait!

    • Michele Soyer says:

      Hydroponics utilizes fertilizers in a rain water base with the seedlings in small baskets net pots…aquaponics utilizes our fish pond as the fertilizer with the same net pots feeding the roots.. both are totally soil free but only for small and medium plants… no zucchini or melons but you can go as large as eggplant peppers and tomatoes….pH adjustments in both make the roots grow brilliantly!!

      • Kate Sarsfield says:

        Aha! Love the idea of using the fishpond, almost the reverse of keeping carp in rice paddies.

        • Michele Soyer says:

          Yes.. and when the the tilapia get very large we catch and freeze them for a fresh fish lunch…Careful watching of the pH and ammonia levels keep the pond fresh, clean and the proper level of nitrates and nitrites….+ it is fun….

  76. Thunderstorms! Lightning! Drama! lol. We didn’t lose power though (sometimes we do). I cleaned up the downstairs, and mopped the floor. Wish it could stay this immaculate forever, but that is never the case… lol.

  77. Quiet day at home. Got a blood pressure thing since my dr. wants me to take it for 3 weeks since my last one was way low. I got a semi fancy one from Amazon that has bluetooth and sends results to my phone.

  78. Tamra Phelps says:

    So…today I stood up, sort of, lol. It was more of a crouch, like a quarterback calling ‘hut, hut’ before they snap him the ball. (That’s an American football reference, Kate, lol.) I had a person on each side ready to catch me…and no doubt giving a lot of support…but I was off that damn wheelchair & putting weight on my feet. First time since about February 4th. No mater what, it can only get better, right??

  79. shelly peterson says:

    I had some what of a relaxing day. It is still very hot.

  80. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Last night’s play ‘Once a Catholic’ was absolutely hilarious! My face aches from smiling & laughing so much. Honestly, there is huge talent out there and for a small town to have it’s own theatre is such a plus. Full seats every night; annual holiday makers to the area always make it part of their plans so there’s always a great mix of people.

  81. Beautiful sunny day today but I worked inside the house and now I am done for the weekend. 🙂

  82. Cathy French says:

    Over the last couple of days I have been “purging” my pantry and getting rid of things that have long since expired. I also have three totes completely filled with items going to expire in the near future that I have to find room for in my kitchen now. I may not have thought this through lol.

  83. Tamra Phelps says:

    So tired of having this gut problem. Told the nurses today that I am through with the meds. If it doesn’t help, what’s the point?? I’ll just try to control it through diet.

    • Michele Soyer says:

      I don’t express it all the time but I do think of you and your plight daily… you are making progress and slow and steady always wins the race.. chin up..take charge of your own care.. you are more then capable of handling your own diet….

  84. Michele Soyer says:

    Cannot believe how late in the day it is… started early but after doing the hydro and aquaponic work I decided to spruce up some buckets with a coat of paint and re-do the flower conservatory.. there was a mish mash of different pots and that was driving me crazy.. now we have a lovely line of the same color, same size containers.. then of course I had to transplant new flowers in….just enough time to BBQ some burgers and make a no churn mango ice cream for tonights dessert…heading straight into the shower to read my nightly papers…..

  85. Good swim class with lots of people. Have to convince people that they need to come to the pool more often.

  86. shelly peterson says:

    I am really getting tired of this heat ha. But I had a good day sat at my daughters pool and bbq’ed.

  87. Kate Sarsfield says:

    It’s raining! Real, honest to goodness Irish rain – never thought the entire country would have a smile on their collective face due to rain! I’ve got to go out & get some shopping in & collect Mum’s meds then it’s pizza in front of the telly – ahhh!

  88. Cathy French says:

    Gotta go make a grocery run today but gonna have to move fast to not get soaked. Major raining and storms today

  89. Michele Soyer says:

    I have expressed that I am not an eclipse fan at all.. well proven right again.. a snake in the gallery on the banister….yikes!! my daughter was the lucky person who saw and handled the situation…. OMG….

  90. Tamra Phelps says:

    After months of struggling with the meds they put me on for ulcerative colitis…I said ‘no more.’ If they can find one that works, fine, but until then I am no longer willing to endure the side effects (horrible, painful gas, stomach pain, vomiting.) Today was the 1st full day without them (last time I took them was yesterday morning.) so far, it hasn’t been as bad as when I took the meds.

  91. Quick trip to the library to return Black Panther (such a good movie). Then a stop at Smashburger to get my birthday Salted Caramel shake.

    • Happy Birthday Sarah!!! A little early but since I have no Internet I’m not sure I will be on tomorrow.
      BTW….SmashBurger is my favorite! But there are none close to me.

  92. Like my mother reported, I encountered a snake this morning crawling up the front steps. I got rid of it… but it freaked me out. It made me think of my Dad though. He hated them – worse than Indiana Jones – if he encountered it he would have gone nuts. lol.

  93. shelly peterson says:

    I had a great day. Went to my nephew and his wife’s baby shower today….and its still too hot.

  94. Michele Soyer says:

    Glorious Sunday to all…..Trying to get my chores done as soon as possible then a day of relaxation….if I see something that I perceive doing .. walk away Renee.. wait
    some here may not know that oldie but goodie…. …Baking though.. breads and cookies….that is not work!

  95. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. In plan on binge watching AHS today with my daughter and living in my pajamas

  96. Happy Sunday… I am not doing anything. Just surfing the net and then I plan to borrow some books on KU and catch up on some reading. 🙂

  97. Cathy French says:

    I woke up to no newspaper this morning. 2nd time in a month they failed to deliver my sunday paper. Had to ask boyfriend to get one at Kroger. He had no idea how expensive they were until this morning.

  98. Kate Sarsfield says:

    The big bathroom mirror fell off the wall today & shattered into gazillion pieces. It’s taken me almost two hours of tidying up but no walking barefoot for me now, just in case! And no, we told ourselves it’s not 7 years bad luck because it broke itself!

  99. Had a wonderful birthday brunch at the Fresh Fish Company. Including one pound of Dungeness crab.

  100. shelly peterson says:

    Today was a lazy day. I did nothing.

  101. Michele Soyer says:

    Getting a really early start today… into the garden to work for about 2 hours then getting ready to clean and paint the guest room….moving all the furniture out first….big plans but taking my time….

  102. Happy Monday to all. I am beyond tired this morning, oh my goodness! Heres hoping that the day goes smoothly

  103. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Just tucking into local strawberries & homemade yoghurt for brunch – happy days!

  104. Cathy French says:

    Was awoken about an hour and half before I normally wake up with a text. People know I’m not a morning person so why they be calling so early? Ugh!!! Sets the tone for the day and now its early afternoon and I feel like I can go back to bed already.

  105. Horrible weather lost power and everything. It’s back now but I just want to cuddle up and go to sleep. No energy at all….

  106. Tamra Phelps says:

    Well, physical therapy goes on…and I’m at a point where I can get so frustrated at it when progress is slow. But hey, progress is better than nothing.

  107. Good swim class with one new guy. Quiet week here in Lake Wobegon.

  108. shelly peterson says:

    Today was an ok day. but it has cooled down some.

  109. I had a TERRIBLE today, but the way I look at it….tomorrow can only get better!

  110. I am exhausted this morning. Went to bed at 1 am woke up at 5 🙁 debating on calling out

  111. The sun shined today. I trimmed hedges and my mom chopped down a dying one with a machete. I was impressed. LOL.

  112. Kate Sarsfield says:

    Not much happening today other than Mum drove the car! She’s not allowed to drive since her stroke affected her peripheral vision but she misses it so much that I got her in the car and let her loose around the back garden (really a field). She’s now having a nap & is smiling in her sleep!

  113. Michele Soyer says:

    Well I can honestly say I am done in….we looked at the hedges this morning and decided to take them in hand…so armed with 2 tree saws and a machete I chopped down one small and one larger one down to the bone…..limed the small stump… put urea around the bases of the good ones and then my partner in crime trimmed them with the electric trimmer.. looking good I must say.. so to hold that edge we put large planters of tropical foliage that match the hedges….my neighbor wanted to know what the hell we were attempting.. we attempted nothing we accomplished something!

  114. Quiet day at home. At least until I watched your Instagram and now I’m freaked out.

  115. shelly peterson says:

    Today was a good day. Took my grandson to a couple movies.

  116. Kate Sarsfield says:

    There’s a storm heading our way & you can feel it in the air. It’s given me a headache so the sooner it hits us the better (as long as no-one gets hurt)!

  117. Good Morning! I am so tired this week.Thats all I got today.

  118. Michele Soyer says:

    Out in the garden all morning….had quite a lot of flower cuttings to put into media….took up more time then I anticipated….have a very large bunch of bananas hung to finish ripening….” come …..Mr Tally Man tally me bananas…daylight come and me wanna go home……anyway bursting into song at any opportunity around here…..

  119. Beautiful sunny day… Did some work outside and then inside. After the days of rain it’s nice to have the sunshine back. 🙂

  120. Good swim class then a quick stop at the grocery and the library.

  121. Tamra Phelps says:

    Well, ugh. That’s all I can say about today. Stomach pain, cramping, vomiting…just UGH!

  122. Mendy Dinsmore says:

    My day has been ok. Thanks for asking. I hope you had a great day. Thank you hosting the giveaway.

  123. shelly peterson says:

    It was an ok day. Another day of dialysis.

  124. Tamra Phelps says:

    Yesterday, I tried to eat supper and had the worst episode yet with my stomach. Horrible pain, vomiting, cold sweats, low b.p., feeling like I was going to pass out. Nurses were in the room, trying to decide if I needed to go to the E.R. We all agree this cannot be the ulcerative colitis causing this because it starts 20 minutes or so after eating…before the food even leaves the stomach. It’s no where near my colon.

  125. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I found a heavily sequined black cocktail dress in a charity shop the other week for next to nothing. How to make it look (almost) brand new, I hear you ask? One bottle of black glitter nail polish & several hours of your life! That’s the Christmas party frock sorted!

  126. Have a bad headache today. Now I am just going to cuddle up and sleep it off…

  127. Trip to the eye doctor. No change in prescription so no new glasses. Cataract has not gotten bigger, eye pressure good. However my pupils are still dilated.

  128. My day today: part good, part rough, part confusing. Isn’t life interesting?! 🙂

  129. Soo I want to share a story with you. My teen daughter has autism. She is a beautiful model, but she is on the spectrum. Her name is Caitlin.
    Caitlin and I on the couch talking and she turns to me and says you know whats sad that parents would rather their kids DIE of a disease then the possibility of having an autistic child. I said what do you mean? She says, they rather not vaccinate because they are so afraid of their kid having autism,. BROKE MY HEART! To feel that your own disability is viewed as worst then the possibility of death. It never even occurred to me her seeing these news stories and the damage it does to a kid with autism and how they feel people view them. My poor kiddo..It broke my heart

  130. shelly peterson says:

    Today was a pretty good day. It was relaxing.

    Back out to do some weeding and start some lettuce and greens….planted flowers yesterday so today is veggies only….mixing my pro-mix with compost and a bit of sharp sand to fight all the rain with more container drainage….all I really want to do is keep us eating from the garden….

  132. Today I woke up with a terrible migraine. Meds have reduced it enough to function but still having pressure so I’ll probably nap most of the day.

  133. Kate Sarsfield says:

    I’m sitting here just staring into space & trying to put off going into town ‘cos I’m tired when I hear my heartbeat really pounding. A little bit of panic sets in, while I tell myself to calm down. Then I realise it’s the horse’s hooves in the next field as she gallops away from the horse flies! Right, time to go buy paint and a new bathroom mirror!

  134. Michelle Li says:

    Kinda ready for September now to be honest.

  135. Good swim class. Then I stopped at Panera for my birthday pastry. Cinnamon crunch yum.

  136. Got more accomplished today but the weather looks like it’s changing back. Lots of thunder and lightning…

    I am glad its Friday. I am tired.

  138. Michele Soyer says:

    Moving along at a great pace this morning.. doing laundry and checking emails then out to the garden… put in some grapefruit and cashima seeds to set then mixing hydroponic fertilizer…..getting ready to start painting on Monday…

  139. Susan Smith says:

    I’m having a good day. I got up early to walk my dog, run errands, do laundry, clean and cook some meals for the week. Later on I plan to spend time at the pool.

  140. Taking my little peanut niece shopping for more clothes. Last night took her down the shore where we rode rides, ate ice cream and chased waves. Tomorrow we are off to The Musuem of Natural History!
