All fresh and new.

I bought a pack of those blue paper masks, I have only used 3 so far out of 20. I keep home but there is always that monthly trip that must be made for banking. People are making and selling masks here but they are just a piece of cotton with elastic. It looks good but there is no protection.

I can see the need for masks being a 'must' for a long time to come. They were talking about a recall on some hand sanitizers as well due to poisonous ingredients...has anyone heard of this as well?

Yes, they have an ingredient in them that is extremely toxic even on your skin. I cannot remember the brands or the chemical but I will when I see it again. They are from Mexico and are mostly sold in dollar stores, etc. I'll just stick to known brands.
I am going out today to the bank. After Tangela brings up my groceries. I will be the first time I've been past my mailbox since March first.
We live in interesting times.

Keep safe Tina...and enjoy the drive being out and about.

I picked my tame strawberries today and started making jelly...there were a lot more berries than I thought. They are smaller but more abundant this year.

I did not hear that about hand sanitizer, ladies. Thanks for the heads up.

Yes enjoy you day to the bank, Tina. And if I were you I would think long and hard to see if there were Any place else you had to go to while out. You know since you are already out and all. The less trips out the better.

Sunny..enjoy the berries. A quart of small berries is still a quart after all. You can always freeze berries that you want to make more jell/jam out of, and make more when you find more pectin after all. I would prepare what I needed for Jam and then freeze it until I wanted to make more Jam..it worked well.

On my 3rd load of clothes in the washing machine now.

Methyl alcohol is the bad stuff. I went to one bank and got in line. It was slow going and in full sun. I was frying. Then I crept up in 6 foot increments and got around the corner and realized that was the line to go into the bank. I only needed the atm, a much shorter line. Sigh!
Then to a second bank that I did need to go into. The line was in the shade there. But after a few minutes the manager came out and said the computer keeps crashing and it needs to be rebooted between every customer. I decided to come home.
I came home, put the rest groceries away that the kids left for me. Then grabbed a snack. I got on my computer and methyl- and ethylalcohol popped into my head. Ethyl is used in hand sanitizer. Methyl will make you go blind or kill you. Mexico was told not to export it to the States but it keeps showing up. Bad stuff.
Now I need a nap.

Sorry for the stressful day, Tina. But again thanks for explaining things to us.

I wanted to take a nap, and Rod must not have wanted me to sleep, he kept talking to me for like 5-20 minutes..that man can go hours w/o talking to me..But let me try to nap, and he becomes a chatterbox. Then once I was up, he was done talking..grrrrrr

Hi all,

Happy 4th , even though it will be just us... hubby is cooking out... made a tater salad and cooked beans in crock pot.. will just need to rewarm those for dinner... they say they are doing fireworks here.. didn't think they would with it so very dry but then I don't get a say...LOL!

Hubby is running out of projects ... of course I want my office painted but he hates to paint so is avoiding that suggestion.. someone painted it with 2 stripes , brown and green on one wall... really don't like it... should have made him paint before we set office up but needed the computer up and running ... even if he would just paint the one wall it would help... When he does get around to it I think I will switch my desk area with the sewing area and try and get big wall unit out, even if I have to give it away... to big for the room and all our other tvs are to big for it now... it's heavy though so will need someone to help get it out of here.. hubby said he would chop it up if no one wanted it... hate to do that as it's in good shape , just not big enough for a big screen tv..

Well going to go get busy doing something ... to hot to be outside .... it's 90* and humid... wouldn't mind a little rain to cool down...
Have a good holiday all , stay well.

Nana

This "covid thing" is enough to get anyone down, or drive them crazy..or both. LOL

I am so ready for this to be over myself...I understand that it is probably here to stay, as the flu is, but I would be so happy for those in the medical field to get a handle on it and to find some course of viable treatment and a vaccine would be wonderful indeed.

My feelings are different. The medical people work on the vaccine and roll it out as it is finished and been proven safe, And at this point I would need to hear it from a professional that I trust.
Until that happens I don;t stress about it, I plan. for it I plan meals. And meals that will do when I'm craving something else. And what I can share if things get tough for my neighbors. I plan other things like my funeral. It's all set in stone now. I plan birthdays and things. Planning is a way to channel my worries constructively. I can plan while I'm washing dishes, folding laundry and general cleaning. Planning beats stress any day.

Yes friends, I know it's a mess that we have to deal with but....

My mother just goes on and on about what others are doing. I keep telling her, I don't care if the neighbors are gathering at their house, or if someone is going on vacation or such. We can't control what others do...we have to just be careful and look after ourselves. She just won't let it go....to the point that I am fed up of hearing about it. My mother has always been such a negative, 'poor me' kind of person....and I am at my wit's end with it all. If she can't visit with some common sense then she can stay home. I can't take it anymore.....sorry for the rant, she just get's to me and makes me depressed each time she visits. It is at the point where I have family telling me that they can't deal with her anymore. She has been thrown out of two of her siblings homes already.

Enjoy your coffee and your kid time, Carol.

Sunny, that your mother puts you in that position is terrible for you. You are not responsible for her happiness. Just you own. Tell her and hang up. Or whatever you need to do.

One year (out of many) I was trying to get Jonni to clean her room. She wouldn't. So I said no toys for Christmas. And she didn't. She did get a simple metal detector. And a microscope. And a telescope. An interesting array for a 7 year old. Plus books and clothes. She is still a slob.

We are all here for each other, Sunny. Of course we understand.
Mine were the same..( sloppy) . I am glad to say both are good house keepers today. Not that you would know it..at my daughter's house with the triplets. They destroy as quickly as she picks up But hey, I thank the Lord they are all healthy, so it does not matter.

Hi all,
I hear you all on the kids messes, mine were mixed, son was neatest of the 3 but girls were terrible. would throw a fit once in a while and they would clean up but it would just all happen again... now they are both neat freaks and son is still. except when he is working on a car but he even cleans that mess up... so hang in there it could all work out...

I closed out my facebook for the the time being just got tired of all the negativity... kids can call if they want to talk to me...
It's hot here today , 99* and clouds building so hope it rains but not counting on it... I have an aloe plant to pot but it is just to hot out there till after dark to do it.. will go out then and get it done...

Well off to get busy doing something... got laundry done already and house picked up... been reading a lot ... to hot to do much else lately.

Nana

We gave Colt a metal detector that we never used and he loves it. Keeps him busy for hours BUT he does have a tendency to dig up the yard or wherever he thinks he's found "precious metal." Right now he's not allowed to use because of the digging in the front yard. Found that out when I mentioned us using it on Saturday. They are fun though. Maybe I'll get my own again. smile

Shelley was never a neat person. I once found a slice of pizza in her sock drawer. From the beginning, Ginger kept her room more organized then you can imagine. When she was coaching her boss told me she was the most organized person he'd ever met. If you want it done, Ginger can do it. Now Shelley keeps her house clean but not neat if that makes sense. Her shoes are thrown in the floor of her closet and I don't know how she finds a matching pair. The drawers are a mess but she washes baseboards, sweeps and vacuums, cleans the shower stall until it drives her children crazy. So if you don't open a door or drawer you think she's the cleanest person ever. Ginger's house is spotless and every cup is in a straight line or it's in the trash. The cans in her pantry are lined up perfectly. She has stuff but not any extra. If they don't use it, she gets rid of it. I am somewhere in between. Her husband is the same way. Cleans up as much as she does and cleans up after himself.

Have fun with the kids tomorrow, Carol. Are they opening Val's school?
John borrowed a computerized type metal detector, Sheri. To find the exact location of pipes he buried. It not only alerted to what you found, it would show a picture of it and tell you how deep it was. Horse shoe nail, 6 inches. It was really fun.

I guess we all had messy kids, my daughter could be on hoarders...and she does not clean. I won't even visit her at her house anymore....I have OCD for cleaning(yes, officially confirmed) so I think they gave me the wrong baby at the hospital.

GG wants the detector to go treasure hunting...I told her that if old nails are treasures, then she might get rich lol ~The cheapest one I can find here is $200 plus tax, I might have to get DD to check on amazon or such, that is too much money for a 'childs toy'.

I prepped my back step last night, today it gets it's annual coat of paint. Winter destroys the stain or paint on every step where we live...I keep telling DH that the next step is just getting waste oiled.


~~Tam~~Those who think country life is simple....have never lived on a farm.
