Lightfoot, I understand your stress now.
In my "Humble" opinion, due to the fact
that Dawn is leaving, should she not assist
you in the move? That would be just one
lessening of stress. I wish I lived closer and
could at least help with rearranging your
living space.
:pray:
I also wish Dawn happiness in her venture.
I assume she knows this man well enough to
feel she can live peacefully with him? Will he
be able to transport her to appointments, etc?
Perhaps all will work out for good! bearhug

Dawn will be a lot of help in packing and moving little things, arranging things too.
Fred is awful with directions. He knows Otsego and Kalamazoo, but Dawn will need me for Holland and Grand Rapids.

My day so far:
One load laundry.
Shower.

Hi there! Dawn will be living about 12 miles away, when she moves.
I took a shower this morning, took Chipper for a walk, and had my cereal and bannanna for breakfast. Will be leaving for my Mom's shortly, and will be there for a few hours.
Have a good day all!

Safe trip to your mother's, Lightfoot.

Breakfast of coffee, toast, one egg,
two turkey sausage patties and a few browned potato slices.
I took the recycle plastics to the local bins.
We went to our nearest Garden and plant supply
for a few bags of soil, one Sweet potato slip and one
Lavender plant.
Did a little gardening, planted 12 Blue Lake beans in pots.
Lunch of turkey meatloaf sandwich, broccoli and my
second coffee. Then off to visit my gr.doggies.
I find it slower getting back into the gardening
chores. Perhaps too long resting in winter?

Just back from a weeks holiday in Yorkshire with my husband as it was his 70th Birthday and he wanted to visit his childhood home.
We went to Harrogate and the Yorkshire Dales- A national park and very beautiful. Sheep everywhere with their cute lambs.
We visited several other towns and had afternoon tea in a famous cafe called 'Betty's '. It was very nice and memorable and Rob got given a small cake with a candle as it was his birthday and the pianist played 'Happy Birthday to you' on the piano.
We went to Sheffield my husband's birthplace for the last 2 days and we saw some old friends and went out and about. You would not believe how bad the traffic is there with all the residential areas parked solid on both sides of the street. Driving was a nightmare so we were pleased to return to sleepy and civilised Norfolk. It was a lovely break but there's no place like home!!! house wlc3

Hello all! Slept in this morning! Chipper pawed at my recliner at 5 this morning to wake me up, and as I got up, he went and laid under my desk, so I said "The heck with this!", and I laid back down too.

We might get up to 80 today, so I'll be working outside on a couple of things. Well, I should say I MAY be doing a couple of things outside, seeing as today is the first of May.

Talked with my old friend yesterday. He couldn't get tickets to the Beach Boys concert on the 11th either, so we may try to sneak in. Ah, memories of our old escapades!

Have a great day all!

Just read your reply LFF and thank you! But yes I am a senior.....considering most places say 55 and over I have been one for nearly 20 years (well in almost 3 years it will be 20) Where did the years go? I became a widow at 58 so most of my senior years I have been alone except thank God I have two sons that live with me.

2Anne I am so happy you had a great time at your holiday for hubby's b'day. I am like you no place like home though.

LFF it is nice to see old school friends. I haven't seen any of mine but I do get to chat with some of facebook once in awhile and it is nice to know what they are doing in our senior years.

I am slowing down....takes longer to get things done....my youngest son has practically taken over the garden and I am very thankful for him. The challenged son keeps the yard mowed. If they were not here I would live in a high rise for seniors for sure.

This very moment I am looking out my window and watching the humming birds come to their feeders. And I did not have to put the feeder up. I really am fortunate to have sons live with me.

I see I missed a lot by neglecting Shout yesterday.
It was such a lovely May day, I spent much time outdoors.

Margie, I pray the bad weather skips over you.

2Anne, in my mind, I followed you and your husband on your
visit to his childhood home. I love England and all of Great Britain.
In fact, I watch the British shows on youtube. So much better
than our USA TV.

Lightfoot, is it spring fever that has you tired? Do you need B-12 shots?
I'm glad you enjoy time with your old school mate. Funny to think of the
two of you sneaking into concerts. I have no old school mates left.

Glad, it really is wonderful to have our children, I agree.
You will be out there in the garden soon. You just need to
recover from winter Blahs.

Cool day here, and overcast. Rain is on the way. I raked the worn area of our front yard yesterday, and when the rain starts, I'll reseed it with lawn repair. Was going to give blood today. Changed my mind due to time and comfort considerations, plus the fact that I'd have to take another shower. I've already had one for this month.
Have a good day all!

Do I detect a bit of sarcasm, joyous?
I talked with the property manager here this morning, after she had spoken with her superiors. Normally, there is a transfer fee of $400 to transfer from one apartment to another,per apartment, but due to the unusual circumstances, this fee will be cut in half, meaning $200 for us, and 200 for the lady next door, which she definitely cannot afford. Dawn has graciously offered to pay that. This lady does not have a washer and dryer, so I've offered to sell this lady my washer and dryer for $100. I paid $440 for the washer a year and a half ago, so it's like new, but the dryer is old and the belt squeals when cold.
We can move at any time, depending on what time works for Loretta, the lady next door, but the lease transfer will not be done till the first of June. We're packing boxes.

So I guess that means you're moving LLF? I wish we were the ones moving out of this dump we have called home since 2010. Not enough room for us, guess we have outgrown it here. Would like to move to a bigger house if possible and no stairs to climb to get to our bedroom either. Speaking of the weather here today, had some much needed rain but not much wind, hail or tornadoes yet. I say Yet!!!! Pray for the rain we badly need here is enough for now. Suppose to rain most of tomorrow to. John had a appointment at the heart doctor tomorrow afternoon to.

LFF I have been told that they wont accept my blood since I am a diabetic.

It is rainy today. The three ladies will go visit another church lady today since it is her birthday. Not sure how old she will be but it is upper 80's. She is also a widow and does not drive or get out much. Only to church when someone picks up up. Anyway we three pitched in together and getting Captain D's and going to her house and surprise her. I hope the rain lets up when we go.

Awwwww shucks Lightfoot, you see through my banter.
Seriously, sometimes my jokes fall flat. Of course I was
kidding!

Margie, in my younger years, I never thought I would be
living in a trailer, or as the upper class call them, a Mobile
home. However, I cannot imagine living anywhere else now.
Our place is sort of at the end of our side of the street and
has a very large yard. Plus our view is of a green space and
wooded area across a creek. Years ago, we sifted all the soil
along the creek edge and have turned it into a vegetable/
flower garden.
I don't know if you would consider trailer living, but it works
well for me and my companion.
During the rain, we went to a local Nursery/garden supply
and bought a flat of Blue Lake bush beans and three perennials.
The rain has ceased for now.

Glad, I hope your weather allowed you to visit your friend.

Trainer Homes in the UK are called Park Homes and some are very luxurious. Many people who retire sell their houses to release equity and move into a trailer - either bought cheap or rented. This gives money for old age for those who have poor pensions and have all their money in their house.
Joyous your home sounds lovely and Trailers are just like big ranches.

I've lived in a small studio cottage (1 year), 3 different mobile homes (for a total of 20 years), a four bedroom ranch style for 20 years, a couple of 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartments for 4 years, and now, we'll be moving to a one bedroom, 1 bath. I like apartment living- no maintenance, no yard work or snow removal; water, sewer, trash collection, and heat included.

Our electric was knocked out yesterday at 2:00 P.M.
We have a gas stove so breakfast wasn't a problem
We used a match to light the burner and cooked oatmeal.
Lunch was a canned soup and crackers. Power back at
12:30 today.
I spent the afternoon with my oldest son. After we did
a couple of things he needed, he fixed the window of my
car, rear passenger, which had been messed up for a couple
of years. He was extremely tired after doing it. A job
which would have been easy for him a few years back.

Back is hurting today as it was yesterday. Might have to do with my sitting at a file cabinet, as I have my desk moved to the living room.
Rain has stopped, but the radar shows a lot more on the way, so I don't think I'll be going out today. Hopefully, I'll have an easy day.
