    @lilo0003 Sorry to hear about your MIL's health. Your family continues to be a blessing to the grandparents. They have their rime with you and they probably need that support during this important time. Hug your mom next time you see her.

    @SassyAshley You continue to do you and crank some uplifting music. Can't believe your family is guessing what your situtation will be but there are families like that (have some same scenarios myself). I discovered that Giant Tiger has a boombox looking bubble machine that also connects to Bluetooth for music from cellphones. Something to smile about when you listen to your tunes in the morning. Not certain how much bubble mix comes with the unit.

    @Giseledta Yes, adulting sucks. Treat yourself to something fun tomorrow. Do you have vacation photos to print? Any of lighthouses?
    @lizzie bargain Not sure where AB gets its apples but if they are from BC, then maybe all those wildfires are impacting transportation and volume of supply. Last year on Twitter, one AB farmer said he did not know of a drought in your province. I sent him a link that there were AB farmers looking for hay from US for cattle beef (AB hay volumes were really low due to drought)and there was also a farmhand shortage (during pandemic, some ranchhands found other work), otherwise beef farmers were sending their stocks to slaughterhouses to deal with hay shortage.
    @coupon girl Ontario cherries are certainly worth their price! Sweet throughout and local. I need more cherries too.

    Today's heat/overcast sky did something to air in the house-it was not moving enough to be cooling. Sweating indoors on main and lower floors was really concerning. Mom said the same about being outside in garden even though sky looked like it held rain, no rain fell. Tomorrow might be the thunderstorm round 2 we need. Wind picked up around 8pm so cooling blasts are entering the house. Did little cleaning tasks in spurts but truthfully, my brain is cranky in the heat and my body is fighting against long spells of sitting too. Afternoon nap is mandatory.

    Looks like I will have to double my monthly spending on bandages. And rely on gauze bandages in cooler temps. Still having to do 2-3 changes per day since I now have a lymphatic leak happening. Adding to my laundry loads as well!

    Since Mom did a run for watermelon and drinks, I sliced up the melon tonight and packed away in the fridge so it's ready for tomorrow. Noticed a bit of flesh has the telltale overripe look. Things would be worse if the watermelon sat overnight on counter, as happened last week. Did taste-test-flavour is hit and miss but juicy. So hydration will be assured at least.

    I'm back to checking our produce daily as there's always something turned or overlooked. And most of it is not produce bought by me. I was grateful to have found 1/2 hothouse cucumber in the back of fridge (forgot about it for 5 days). So refreshing last night! Needed it.

    Tomorrow's to do is catch up on this week's expenses and do receipt surveys. Need to give the Universe some nudging for contest win soon! Good night, everyone!

    sassy -hope you are fine and missed the covid

    lilo-so nice your both sets of parents are friends and nice to keep in touch and see loved ones near the end .

    Today is the day my dad died 48 yrs ago ,i still remember it so vividly i was out of town in london,ont sleeping over at my brothers used to go there as a teenager as he had a 3 yr old at the time and i found it fun to go on the bus by myself (yes we did more things by ourselves in those days)It is still nice to remember our parents .


    Yesterday went to our sons for a 12 house street party for kids ,there was food 3 bouncy castles ,4 pools set up,moana the face painter was there for 2 hrs and plenty of food .Sitting outside for 6 hrs under a canopy i got tanned but the humidity gets to me plus cara was up at 5.45 that morning .

    The adults had a water fight so much fun ,my dear hubby had a lot more fun runnning around with the girls squirting them and watching them have fun.Of course all the families in attendance put in for the cost .
