Sunshine As Medicine

I wonder how the entire thing about vitamin D works, SUNSHINE VITAMIN. As many of you know I do fit day and I seem low on the vitamin and since one can't eat sunshine and then how is this vitamin measured.
I get outside quite a bit. But then on the other side one doesn't need to damage one skin.

Notice our neighbors to the south of east found place in the town of Bonners Ferry, Up in Marx subdivision.
Good neighbors sorry to see them go. I like soaking up the sun but since they had small children I couldn't total sunbath in my birthday suit.
Until someone moves into the place. I can sit quietly in private in the nude and sock up sunshine.
The trees between the two places don't cover everything.

The old neighbor were nice enough to give us there old firewood what they used in there fireplace. roughly a half of cord of larch and red fir mixed.
We were planning on purchasing a cord of firewood. Still am, which will then give us one and half cords. The half cord is worth about $80 to $125.

Not quite to 1,800 calories I just don't see what I'll be going under that for a while. There a lot of info out there on how much CALORIE we need. I've always thought the ideal of 12 -13 calorie of body weight to loose. 14-15 calorie to maintain your weight, and gain weight one should eat 18 - 19 calorie per pound.
It also depends on how active you are. On fit day I keep track of my nutritional value, and see where I need to improve on.

Happy Summer everyone...Coffee is on

What Effect Us

Weigh in at our local T.O.P.S meeting and only one person lost. I stay the same. Finely I mange to maintain my calorie count last week at 1,847. It took me 3 weeks and I don't know why it took me that long.
Now this up coming week my calorie count 1,822.
Today discussion topic was....Question time...What would you tell your 10 year self?...my answer your ok and your doing fine.
It was also brought up. Why certain thing in our lives effect us and other things don't.
Not going into great detail and I know I wrote about getting into trouble at school for something I didn't do. It uncomfortable for me to come in first. And the topic of wills. When I have time I will blog about wills.

The photos I've done last few times it been that I found them off the net. It's been since Feb since I've gotten anything off my camera.

I haven't yet got the hang of using a BULLET JOURNAL. We all have certain goals in our lives. One of the reason I'm not loosing weight is lack of water and movement.
So one of my goals is to do 3 chores in the morning and 2 in the evening before I go to work.
Most of my time even with my job most of my hours in under supervision.

The other day I wash up the fabric I bought some time ago for my grand daughter Emilia. And my son father day gifts is going to be a little late. Because of how my pay day fell.
Both boys I got them a crayola kit for under $10 and those balsam wood planes. When the boys was young I would put them in there sock and they were around $1.00 each.
The price of them now is just under $2.50
Since Sawyer wife Betty makes DOGIE SCARF I put in some fabric. Then the place I got the balsam wood planes, LARSON in Bonners Ferry. I also got my grand daughter a little outfit and it was mark down 25%.

Murphy got a small harvest off our strawberry patch. Picked u chair for Regis at the thrift store.

There Many Types Of Communcation

Since today is Fathers Day. In past our fore fathers communcate in so many ways. Such as actual talking to anther being. But there been communication devices since way back when. Beating a drum or even sending a smoke signals.

TELEGRAPHY is one of communicating. Reminds me of texing or twitter. One might send a tex or a gram...Bst Dad in wld, luv u lot.

A hand written letter for years was a way of communicating. People correspond during war, when family and friends was far apart. One couldn't get vehicle or some type of transport. Only way one got around is riding a horse or having the horse pull the cart.

I'm one who still have pen pals and this some what the letter I will be sending..

Dear Abby

So this weekend I'm writing cards and letters to my pen pals. Plus other not exciting things like dishes, laundry and such.
Got the veggie garden in. Since I work a 30 hour week. I don't have much to do with it. Murphy handles 98% of the garden.
This morning he brought in some fresh beet greens
It would be good with dinner.
Notice the strawberries are turning red and plenty of blossom our on the raspberries.
So both boys are doing fine. Bart who had the tumor remove is back to work and talk to different oncologist. Both agree on light chemo. They don't agree when to start it.
Since this type of tumor is slow growing type, but it rare and only 4% of population gets it. I have trouble announcing it and let lone spell it.
There three good thing going for him. He young, healthy, and it slow growing.
Now for Sawyer and Betty there doing fine. At this point there trying to figure out what color to paint the outside of there house. It's best for me to stay out of it.
Since adopting is expensive. Actual apply for and older child. Most states and the program called “A Forever Home” but some places might call it something else.
What I understand there a lot of paper work. Seen a few of question. I would have trouble answering them.
But there next step they take a parenting course in August.
Not sure what happen after that.
Still working 30 hour week. My client Regis is having a hip replacement in July. Then my hours will increase. But by how much, I'm clueless. I never figure out the hours why people who are in horrible shape gets little hours. Then they're those who I think is in better shape them me, gets all types of hours.
My other client Liz is dealing with difficult about her son Paul. It would take some time to explain everything. But at present time he in jail for trying to choke his girl friend.
He got quite the record. Mostly because of drinking.
The sad thing he need medication for that he hears
A couple of times he mention that he can hear people think.
So I wrote a letter, and gave it to his mom so she can give it to his lawyer. Yes he needs to be responsible for his action and choices. But he needs help.
Most resent craft project I've been working on is a crochet rag rug but at the moment I been cutting and putting strips together. This one being done red, white, and blue.
I'm giving it to Liz for Christmas. Right now I'm trying to finish up project I got going.
This afternoon my hubby Murphy and I went to a memorial service of our friend Debbie, she wasn't quite 56 years old.
She died of cancer, and she did give it a good fight.
Not much more to say. Anyhow you put in the coolest stuff in your letters.

Pen pal

Write when you can


On star trek it amazing how things record...LOG...but then there those fancy computer that the crew talk to.
Even I talk to my lap top. Confession time...At time I will say please and thank you. Which is not necessary.
Question time...how do you think we will be keeping records/documents and communicating in the future?

Since There No Photos Yet

Three priest was sitting at the pearly gate awaiting to talk to St Peter, and to see if they can get into heaven.
So after a long wait it was then the priests turn.
St Peter ask the first priest have you every fooled around?
#1 priest reply...”Never” so he got a new Jaguar to drive around, in heaven.
Then it came to #2 priest...same question have you every fooled around?
#2 priest shyly reply...Once I did it was my senior prom and things just got of hand. But I felt so bad and never did it again.
So St Peter told him...It was only once and I'm going to let you have a 5 year old Chevrolet to drive in heaven.
Now # 3 priest was to be interview
St Peter ask same question..”Have you every fooled around” to #3 priest.
Proudly the #3 priest said...”Hell yes I got all I could and even some time two or three times. Then on holly days I even diddle all the married woman of parish.
So St Peter said to #3 priest..That not very becoming for a priest, since your honest. I'll let you in and you get a tricycle to ride around heaven in.
So all three priest was in heaven...And the #3 priest was on a cloud rolling round laughing.

#1 priest drove by and roll down the window of his Jag and ask the #3 priest..What are laughing at?...His reply was the pope just past me on pogo stick.

Eliminate That Doesn't Work

I've been trying to figure out why I can't pull any photo off my xD card. And couple of comment suggest it might be my xD so I took my card down to our local photo place, "Photo Plus"
So I plug in my card and it worked fine. I didn't just plug it in. I had two photos printed and it cost me forty cents.

Question time...Have you every post a something and thought I should blog about that? Mine right now would be about people getting a free ride or mooching.
I thought it was my multi reader and I even went and got a new one. When I put it in a port there will be red light that lights up. Absolutely nothing.
I'm hoping after coffee I will get a chance to take my lap in to my niece.
The lap top isn't worth taking it to a shop. Actual it runs fine other then the photo issue. It only worth on high end, $80.

Murphy replace part of the guts to the toilet. Then I went to work. Saturday is pay day. I can take care of the finical end of life.
I was going to post how I stay with in my calorie count for last few days. That would be a flat lie. But I did make a plan to try a Smore frappuccino at Starbucks. I've pretty much stay with in my calorie count. Planning meals has help.
Confession time....If I didn't have the frappuccino I would be slightly under my 1847. My choice of having a frappuccino wasn't by emotions.
Finish up the red part of Liz crochet rag rug. Next section of rug will be white. Looks like I will have to find more white fabric. Usual sheets from thrift store is best way to get the fabric for crochet rag rug.
Last year we had such issue with flea on all of our furry family members. This year we got handle on things.
Just spray both cat Ziggy and Abner. And first part of June treated Daisy with drops. So far so good.

Nothing Completed But Thats Ok

This morning Murphy and I went into to town and vacuumed out the car, and this point that the only tasks I finished.
Had to into the bank and get a copy of check I wrote for our safety deposit box, the safety deposit box It due the first of May and it was paid mid April and clear our checking account. So the teller couldn't figure why it didn't post.
So she going to talk to someone to see what going on. Another teller brought up late fee...Wrong it was paid before the due date. So my hubby or I will stop in Monday to see if everything is straighten out. There will be no late fee or I will getting a safety deposit box at anther bank.
I believe it will be taken care of.

I've gotten the letter written for Paul, Liz son.

My name is Peppy and I'm Paul mother Liz care giver. You get a chance to meet family and friends of your clients.
This letter is pertaining to Paul.

When Paul isn't drinking and sober he is hard working, honest, kind, responsible, giving, and he has a good sense of humor. And shown me respect.
Since I've known him for around 2 years usual he been employed.

He will go quite a while without drinking and for some unknown reason to me, he will start drinking until he blacks out.
There been two times he has mention that he can hear people think. And this statement was made when he was sober.

Paul needs help. And One thing I wouldn't say he shouldn't be responsible for his choices or action.

Could you please consider sending him to place he may get the correct diagnosis and rehab.

I have no formal training in mental heath but because of my job as a caregiver I've seen plenty of this job.

Hope this letter is taken in consideration...Sign my name.

At this point he been in front of a Judge and the only thing was establish is the amount of bail, which is $10,000.
So Friday the judge will decide is he is going to be charge as misdemeanor or felony. He was charge with fighting in front of minor child.
Not sure if the minor child mother is being charge is should be.
I'm letting his lawyer decide about the letter I wrote. But it a pity he got PUBLIC DEFENDER and they don't don't have the time to put into the cases they handle.

Don't know how many more time I'm going to stop at my niece place to see if she can look at my lap top. She hasn't home.
Not sure how many more time I'm willing to stop in. The only trouble with lap top it won't except any of my photos off my x'd card.
It far from a new lap top and not worth a whole lot.

I got a little father on my crochet rag and last night as I watching Star Trek I made anther ball of red fabric.
So later on I will crochet more of the rug.

Off to Liz tomorrow and hopeful she can get the chance to cut out strips. She want to do a crochet rag rug.
Sheets are usual one to go in making crochet rag rug. One of our thrift store close there doors for good, and I ended up buying and entire paper bag of top sheets.
So this can get her started.

Laundry two loads and still some in the hammer.
Paid my health insurance, and did the floors.
Still looking for donation for DAISY and I will match the donation up to $50.00

Took a photo of the rug I'm working on and the step project for our deck. Since it was such a nice day I took photo one looking east and west.
Gee I miss sharing photos...Coffee is on
