I think you are on higher ground? But be very careful going to and from work. Oh yeah, it was Brodie who did the damage but Wee Willie who was chasing him and stopped just in time and sat downon his butt with the innocent look :) Narrow is he hardest to find and they have to fit or otherwise you slip out of them. Shoe stores mainly cater to the 75% with standad sizes. Had to run to vet to pick up the liquid prednesone for Shasta. Then spent osme time getting non-food stuff into the trailer for camping. Sounds like we will be lucky with the weather. Maybe a little rain tomorrow and Thus am an then warm and sunny for he weekend. Keeeping my fingers crossed that the sorm won;tbe oo bad and it loses some steam traveling overland. Stay safe.

So for Odile hasn't hit us. We did get some rain early this morning from a different system. Odile is expected tomorrow through Friday. There is a flash flood warning, which is a bit scary. I'll never understand why kittehs like to cause mayhem. It's a shame your clock and dish were broken. Do you know who the culprit was? So far Ted has only broken one thing, a little dragon figurine I had. You're right that a team must be able to play in all conditions. Hopefully they will learn from it and play much better the rest of the season. You're lucky you're able to find shoes that fit easily. I wear a 9.5 or 10, but my foot is narrow, so finding shoes that fit is very hard. Last time it took over an hour to find new work shoes. Casual shoes aren't as bad. Today wasn't as stressful at work, thankfully. How was your day? Have a great evening and Wednesday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 16, 2014 at 7:49 PM
Keep us posted and hope it doesn't hit you hard.
By Sylviag on Sep 16, 2014 at 9:07 AM
Hoping that Odious Odile doesn't hit you hard. Ani said you were in the path of it also.
By Sylviag on Sep 15, 2014 at 8:48 PM
We had kitteh mayhem here this morning resulting in a borked kitteh clock and a little what not dish I put my watch and junk in when I am on mylap top on the couch. This is the secnd time Bryan will have to glue that damn clock together :) He gave it to me as a surprise prezzie one time so it has to be fixed cuz I won't part with it. I guess it was like 120 degress on the playing field. But still when you pay football you hae to be able to do it in all conditions from blizzards to heat. I hope they fix the problems, especially the way too many costly penalties. I wear a traight size 9 1/2B so easy to fit. Elder Autnie had like a size 8 super narrow foot and could never find anything except at the very expensive Nordsrom store where they carry all unusual sizes. SOunds like a rough Moanday at work and I bet you are glad it's over. You also have a good, less stressful, Tuesday.
By jadzia23 on Sep 15, 2014 at 8:01 PM
lol Ted crepusculars around 5 am or so too. I've also noticed dusk is when he causes most of his trouble by trying to knock stuff over. It's great the Bears won. At least the 49ers and Seahawks are tied in the division. I hope the Seahawks play better next week. I think the heat really got to them. I was surprised to see that it was so hot in San Diego. I usually don't have trouble finding pants since I'm pretty tall, but I have an awful time finding dress shoes that fit. Your dinner sounds really nice. What is corn hole? It sounds interesting. How was your day? Mine was alright but super busy at work. Had to teach a couple of people how to do something new, had tons of errors to log, disputes to handle, and a lot of my own policies to do. I barely finished. Have a great evening and Tuesday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 14, 2014 at 9:56 PM
Yeah, the kittehs creepuscular onto the bed to wake us up!
By Sylviag on Sep 14, 2014 at 9:05 PM
Bears won - 28-20.
By Sylviag on Sep 14, 2014 at 8:48 PM
Thanks! Always a thrill to get something on the Main FP. I bet they did put on a high energy show. She also designs clothes and has several fashion lines. Very much young female urban styles but good designs. I hate to wish any time bad, but (whispers) I hope they lose too LOL I just checked and Bears are ahead 28 to 20, 4th qtr. Great you found soe tops and pants for work I always had a hard time with dress pants because they were always too short so I mostly wore dresses and suits. Dinenr as really nice Son wound up (as usual) inviting two more couples and a coule other people. But they all brought more food so we had plenty to go aroun. We had brougth a tri tip and a slab of salmon, soeone else brought anothr tri tip and someone else some chicken breast. Son;s gal pal did the othr dishes. we played ladder ball and corn hole. Today Iiterally lolled and LOLd around here :) Bryan heading out fishing again tomorrow morning and coming home Wed so will liekly spend a lot of time here.

By jadzia23 on Sep 14, 2014 at 8:08 PM
It's great you talked more people into going to see the Caddies. Looks like they'll have a good crowd. Sounds like you have a lot of shows to watch too. Williams and Stefani should be good judges. I got to see No Doubt shortly after they got big. It was a great show. I watched a little football today, just a little of the Cowboys game. I did see that the Seahawks lost, which was disappointing. I hope the 49ers lose too so they won't be on top, but like you said, there are still a lot of games to be played. I got a pair of pants for work and a couple of tops for when it gets colder. I ended up having tacos again last night. They were pretty good. It was sweet of the waiters to give your MIL the hate and sing to her. How was dinner at your son's house? Did you have a nice weekend? Mine was pretty good. Today I just relaxed. Have a great evening and Monday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 14, 2014 at 7:42 PM
Got a few more people talked into going to the Mad Caddies when we went to son's for dinner. 3d season of Downton Abbey and 5th seaon of True Blood and several movies. We need snow soon so we an hunker down and watch them :) Pharrel Williams and Gwen Stefani, bothof whom I like. I read that Shakira is preggers so that may have driven her decision to quit. Did you watch football today? Rats we lost our game today against the Chargers. We played pretty good but they played better. If the 49rs win tonight,they will be on top of NFC West - do not like :) But 14 more games to go. Love brawurst too! Most any kind of sausage actually. Anything good at the mall and what did you have for Mexican? Fri we and son took MIL out for Mexican. They know us pretty well there now and give us great service. When we told them MIL turned 88 end of Aug they put a big sombrero on her and one waiter played the guitar and sang the birthday song. She was so delighted and antd to take the hat home LOL Have a good Moanday
By jadzia23 on Sep 12, 2014 at 8:02 PM
It's also funny when you try to change the channel on one station, and they're playing the same bad song on another at the same time. Winter is a good time to catch up on shows. What other series do you need to catch up on? Who are the new judges on The Voice? I bet the Swiss Chard and wieners were very good. We used to have a German deli that had wonderful sausages. My favorite is bratwurst. I just wash my hair too, but I do straighten my bangs. The new hairdryer isn't quite as good as the last, but it should do. Usual weekend plans-mall and dinner. This time for Mexican food. I'm not sure what I'll get yet. What do you have planned for the weekend? How was your Friday? Mine was pretty good. Have a great evening and Caturday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 11, 2014 at 8:37 PM
It's a radio plot I tell ya! We have caught a few Grimm episodes here and there and enjoyed them but never got into watching regularly. I am waiting for winter to catch up on the series on DVD we have stacked up. One of which is the 3d season of Game of Thrones. Absolutely love it. Oh yes, the Voice is one show we do regularly watch. Will be interesting with two new judges. I always like the chemistry between the judges also. Just puttered around the houe and yard today. Ceanedup some more in the greenhouse. Picked the last of the Swiss Chard and we had that tonight along with some German Wierners from my stash in the freezer :) I just wash and wear so no hair dryer neded. Hope you found a good one at a reasonable price. Any plans for the weekend?
By jadzia23 on Sep 11, 2014 at 8:07 PM
I hate the commercials too. I think they all have them at the same time to prevent channel surfing. But even worse than the commercials is a lot of the music. I'd like to have Sirius, but my drive to work is so short, it's not really worth it. I'm glad you got your tiles done. I Hope Bryan's wound heals soon. You were wise to get umbrella coverage. There are just too many risks out there. Your tour of the local lakes and picnic sounds very nice. My favorite shows that are starting up soon are Once Upon a Time, Hawaii Five-0, The Walking Dead, and Grimm. I just stared Game of Thrones and Doctor Who too. I wish I had more time to watch. lol Will you watch The Voice when it starts again? Did you have a more restful day today? I hope so. My day was pretty busy, and I had to go buy a new hair dryer after mine died this morning. It left my bangs looking kind of funny since I wasn't able to finish drying them, and the humidity made them even worse. Have a great evening and Freeday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 11, 2014 at 10:17 AM
Thanks very much! I hate the commercials. Someitmes I can flip hrough 6 pre programmed stations and they are all on a commercial break :) When we got he Honda, we had a coule months of free sirius radio but the problem witht hat ws if I didn;t like a song I couldn;t just skip it. Yeah, ws a project but all the tiles are the brick red they're supposed to be. Tues we had a very busy day. Bryan had a dermatology appt to cut yet another skin cancer out (non-melanoma_, 8 stitches. Saw MIl. Had an appot with our insurance agent to make some changes and get umbrella coverage as we have 2 houses, 2 cars and a travel trailer and some other asets that would look very attractive to a lawyer say if someone sipped on our icy front stairs or ran in front of our car. Ya never know :) A bunch of other errands all requiring a different place to go Yesteday we took MIlon a tour of some of our nearby locallakes and had a picnic lunch. She so enjoyed it but was pretty tired by the time we got her home. We just don't wath a lot of TV so I don;t even know what is old or new :) what are your favorite hows you are looking forward to coming back? Hope your day is good today and tomorrow is Freeday! Yay.

We used to have an alt rock station here, but sadly it only lasted a couple of years. It was really good, and much better than the rock station here that tries to cover everything. You're right that it is hard to keep up with all the groups out there. I haven't been listening to the radio lately. I'm fed up with all the crap on all the stations here. I just stick with my ipod at work, iTunes on my computer, and my CDs for my car. Most of my football teams won this weekend. I was disappointed with Texas, but other than that, I can't complain. Sounds like you had a busy day. Did you get all of the tiles cleaned? I'm sure that wasn't fun. Was today less busy? I hope so. Are you looking forward to the new tv season in a few weeks? Work has been alright. A few more mistakes than I'd like, but it's not too bad. Have a great evening and Wednesday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 8, 2014 at 10:54 PM
We listen to a lot of alt rock on the radio when we are in the car and I jot down songs I like and check out all their stuff on Amazon and see if I want to download anything else. In 2009 they came out with an album, Swoon, and one of the big air hits from that was "Panic Switch" It is still my fave song by them. Before that I had never heard of them. Who can keep up withthe elebenty hunderd groups out there making music. We get The Roling Stone and I haven't heard of a lot of groups they feaure there but sometimes will look them up. Sorry about your fave tennis players losing. MIL will often watch tennis as she played it for many years and belonged to a tennis club. Did your favorite football teams win? I hope it does stay cooler for you. TX is so hot in the summer. Just stuff arund the house and a big project to clean the tiles in the sun room of a chalky film of grout.. Long man story on that one :) Papery stuff for us and MIL, answering emayos and other odds and end. Spent some time in the am here. I dunno, the day just went. How has work been?
By jadzia23 on Sep 7, 2014 at 7:54 PM
You're right that the singer of Silversun Pickups does sound like a woman, just like the one for Smashing Pumpkins does. How did you find out about them? Tennis was pretty fun, though a lot of my favorites lost. I watched football this weekend too. You're right that pizza is the most versatile of dishes. I can't wait for the new brick oven pizza place to open later this month. The weather has been cooler this weekend, and we had some rain Friday. I hope the heat is gone. I love the fall here because it's not too hot and not too cold. How was your day? Mine was good. I just relaxed on the sofa with football and tennis. Have a great evening and Monday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 6, 2014 at 8:58 PM
I thought you might like them But does he not sound like a woman? A very unusual voice. How did tennis go - you have been watching that this weekend haven't you? Can't go wrong with pizza. Really the most versatile of dishes. Depdeng o the toppings you can range from Italian to Hawaiian. I always say I don;t have anything left to do but there is always something I can puter with. Kinda like my yoga :) How has the weather been? Hope you can just loll around tomorrow and relax.
By jadzia23 on Sep 6, 2014 at 7:59 PM
lol CSI did have a lot of spin-offs, and probably too many. I watched them for a little while before getting bored with them and the original. It was great the Seahawks won. I think they'll be good again this season, I listened to some of Silversun Pickups and like them a lot. They reminded me of Smashing Pumpkins. Sounds like those bulbs kept you very busy. Do you have any garden work left before winter? Yeah, went to the mall and to dinner, this time for Italian. Had pizza that was pretty good. Hope for a more relaxing day tomorrow. How was your day? Have a great evening and Sundog :)
By Sylviag on Sep 6, 2014 at 12:20 AM
hanks much! The iony is that we've never watched much CSI except the initial series. Then they had so many spin-offs I got losted :) yay, the Seahwaks won and made it look easy I was nervous they would have first game jitters or something and not do well on national TV, and the NFL season opener. Glad to say they started off just like they left last season. But it's only one game out of a long season. Hoo boy, that as a lot of work planting. Didn't seem like so many when in the bags but one I laid them on the ground where I wanted to go and started diggin holes, it took a long time. They didn;t catch anything. The salmon weren't running yet. But they scouted out the area and had a good time together. He didn't get home until afer the game though. His half son was trackingvit on his smart phone though. Mall today and dinner out today for you?

By jadzia23 on Sep 4, 2014 at 8:08 PM
I didn't realize blubs had to be planted so far in advance. I'm sure they'll look beautiful when they come up next year. Daffodils are lovely. We used to have some, as well as tulips. I'm glad the weather was nice. I hope it was again today when you planted them. Wow, it's already getting quite cold at night. lol How did Bryan's fishing trip go? Hopefully he caught a lot so you can have them for dinner. I've never heard of Silversun Pickups, but I will listen to them as soon as the tennis match is over. Did you watch the Seahawks game? I sure hope they can hang on for a win. It would be a great way to start the season. How was your day? Mine was alright, but busy as usual. Have a great evening and Friday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 3, 2014 at 8:15 PM
Good to hear. Go a bulb bed in the front yard ready for planting yesterday and got a bunch of daddodils, iris and crocus today and will plant them tomorrow. I am so excited to see them come up next year. Daffodils are my favorite spring flower. I had a really large bulb area in WA and so glad they grow wellhere and deer don;t like them I know cuz this spring I saw them blooming all over he neighborhood. High 70s today, very pleasant. Getting into the high 30s now at night. Also visited MIL and went to Costco, Lowe's and Sports warehouse (Bryan going fishing all day tomorrow and of course, needed more fishing stuff :) So was a budy day. Hope your day at work was good. Do you like Silversun Pickups? Was listening to them last night. They've played in TX quite a few times but not much on the West Coast except for Cali
By jadzia23 on Sep 3, 2014 at 7:56 PM
You're right that it wasn't fair to end the long weekend with the stomach bug, but I am feeling much better today, thanks. It is nice it is a short work week, and there are just two days left. It's nice your oldest grandson can drive his sister to school. I did that for my sister my senior year. What was the garden project you worked on today? Hope it wasn't too hot for garden work. It's still pretty hot here, but should cool off a little this weekend. How was your day? Mine was alright, but busy. How is Shasta doing? Hope she's still eating well. Have a great evening and Thursday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 3, 2014 at 7:52 AM
Rats on the stomach upset - not fair to end your 3 day weekend that way and glad Tues at work wasn't too bad. The nice thing i it's only a 4 day workweek :) Hope you are feeling much better today. Gdau starting H this year, 9th grade. Good oldest gson wil share the first year with her plus he will be able to give her ride to shool and a couple of her girlfriends als have brothr togive them rides so likely she will rarely have to take the bus. WHich is good becaue with thebus they have to get up 45 min earlier than if they have a ride. At that age ea extra 15 mins of sleep on school mornings is a good thing. We will have to keep introducing people to the Caddies :) like you did me. After a couple hours here yesterday morning I had to do papery stuff as our retirement chcs hit the bank and then got involved in one last garden project so I can plant Spring bulb this fall.
By jadzia23 on Sep 2, 2014 at 8:03 PM
I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday BBQ :) It's nice the whole family was able to get together too. I hope your grandson has a great senior year, and that the others have good years too. What grades are they in now? I do like those steakburgers, and they belong on one of those shows. I think I saw the one you mentioned a while back. It made me hungry. lol It's great news that Shasta is eating. I hope that continues. It's nice that your MIL's new kitteh is a better fit for her. I didn't do much yesterday. I got hit by another stomach bug or bad food or something, so all I could do was lay on the couch and try to watch tennis when I could. I'm glad your son and his gal pal liked the Caddies mix. It's nice they'll be inviting more people. I hope your show has a better turnout than ours did. How was your day? Mine was much better than yesterday, and I seem to be over whatever I had yesterday. I made it to work, which was very busy, but I didn't mind since I wasn't nauseated all day like yesterday. Have a great evening and Wednesday :)
By Sylviag on Sep 1, 2014 at 4:08 PM
PS Played my MAd Caddies mix for son and gal pal after BIL took MIL home and they ware stoked to go see them. They're going to let some other friends know to get tickets so we can all go together. Hopefully enough tickets will be sold.
