Happy Blated 4th of July! and some catching up!

I hope you all had a fantastic 4th Of July.... sorry I'm a day late but hey Celebrating Freedom is worth celebrating for two days..Smile
Actually my computer/internet decided not to get a signal until about an hour ago..been acting stupid all day long..No clue why...
Wow today was a sweltering hot here... then I was driving my digital temp read out said 107 degree's..that is just plain down right to hot for this lady..and of course I had all kinds of errands to run and places I needed to be or i would have hidden inside all day long. then along came a thunderstorm that lasted maybe 45 minutes and it was even worse with the humidity almost took your breath away to step outside. I didn't even go to the fireworks I watched them out my window...decided my cool house was the best place to be..
What's it been like where you are?

I've been staying up at the lake, Port Clinton & Kelley's Island, Ohio and we've  had some nasty storms on the mainland... thank heavens nothing damaged at my house just some downed tree timbs.. On the island the storms weren' nearly as severe m,ostly down pouring for hours and windy.

In Delaware, Ohio and surrounding areas the storms were much worse with many people still without electric.
Thank God my SIL said that most of the storm passed them and my trailer by where we live outside of Delaware but down the road it was pretty bad with downed trees and power lines..Boy when mother nature decides to throw a tantrum she really throws much heat & to many damaging storms.
the heat didn't used to bother me until my thyroid started acting up and now days I simply can't take it.. I feel so badly for those who have no electric and no air conditioning...
I have  one little air conditioner in my house and 5 fans running and its still 87 degrees in the house at 2 in the morning...even my poor kitty's and Puddles are hot..

I am feeling better over all ...other then the heat of course...but I do think my thyroid levels are finally leveling out.. to the point I actually feel like a human again and not some depressed nut case...I do notice that if I don't take my calicum on time I feel weird but as soon as I take it I feel better.. Doc told me I had to remember that calicum because mine is low... & it affects the Thyroid levels.. Its been kinda hard for me to adjust to a time to take that stupid Thyroid pill because you can't eat for an hour before or after... I'm a breakfast eater like within 1/2 an hour of waking finally decided to wake up take it and go back to bed so when I really wake up I can eat and take the rest of these confounded meds..which have to be taken with food or you get a bad tummy ache...ick.....I think I finally have my schedule in place...

Now to get these hands working again and I just might really feel like my old self or at least close to it..

Neck is nearly healed.... Imagine it has been 3 months & 1 week since my surgery and it is still healing.

Had a great weekend...Hung out with my friends on the Boat dock Friday evening, went to a Block party Saturday on the Island and got to see a lot of people I haven't seen yet this summer...Great food and lots of fun..
Hung out with my girlfriend Sunday night sitting on her porch swing having a glass of wine together...watching all the wild bunny's hopping all over her back yard..just chatting the evening away..I love that swing of hers reminds me of the one we had on our porch when I was growing up..

While running errands today Of course I had to stop by the GW and check for goodies. I hit the jack pot forsure. I bought a basically large 3' long x 22" tall x 24" wide New Tote filled with over 40 New Holiday Gift Bags, different sizes, 10 Gift boxes, 28 packages of every color of tissue paper you could think of, Gift Tags, Stickers, Bows, Ribbon, 20 little bags of diferent Confetti's, Cards, some Mini Star Garland for a mini tree and a container of large Star Garland.
All For the unbelievable price of $12.99 minus my Golden Buckeye card 10% discount. Every single thing in the tote was new never used... I couldn't beleive it.. I have enough gift bags & boxes to do all my Christmas gifts this year and birthdays too! Especially with the few I've picked up here and there at the thrift store this year...

Time for me to call it a day much to do tomorrow...

Have a wonderful week/weekend...Stay Cool!

Blessings from me to you all!


  1. Nothin' like a good friend, a porch swing and a glass of wine! (and some wild bunnies!) Glad you are feeling better Tonya! WOO HOO! ~*~Lisa

  2. Hello Tonya,
    I haven't visited in a while but doesn't mean I've forgotten you. I'm so glad to hear that you are doing so much better and enjoying life again, other than the dang hot temps! Enjoying a cool overcast day here in SE Idaho. Have had a few hot but beautiful days lately. Life's been hectic on my end but calming down I hope. Needing to be crafting..........I need my therapy!!!
    You take care.

  3. Hi Tonya,

    I am so glad that you are feeling better. :) Woohoo!!!!

    I hope that your hands can get better so that you can do the things you love. :)

    It is great too that you have been having a fun time this past few days.

    Yuck! 107 degrees.. We have had mid to high 80s here and in our little mobile home it has been miserable. We have a window AC unit in the back bedroom. That is where I 'live' these hot days. Temps above 70 are bad for me lol Hopefully we will be moving soon to a place with AC.

    We did have a little rain today for the first time in I don't know how long. It is refreshing. I hope that the rest of the country can get the needed rain too.

    Wow! You did hit the jackpot at GW. That is so cool. :) Now you are all set.

    Have a wonderful evening and a great tomorrow.

    Take care, Janet W ((hugs))

  4. I'm soooooo glad you are finally feeling better. Seems like its been a long time coming. I know you will just get better and better. Glad you can spend time with your friends on the island. That's good therapy. Good to hear from you again, been thinkin of ya.


  5. oh Tonya, so glad you are feeling like you again..except the heat..sounds like you had a wonderful weekend spent with friends..I would love to be sitting out on a swing watching the stars at night..yeah when mother nature lets go..she lets go..I have been keeping those without power and such in my I do all of my online friends...I hope you continue to do well and are back to your sweet sassy self again...have a great friday and a great weekend ahead.;)

  6. Morning Tonya...sounds like you are really on the haven't sounded this confident in ages. You are getting your ole self back.
    Being with friends is so important and it gives you reason to think of other things than how we hurt.
    I'm so happy things are going good for you.
    What a great GW find.
    Stay cool!

  7. Tonya,

    It is so hot here as well! Our a/c was not working properly and we spent a week and a half out in the Cedar Loft where it was much cooler. We're getting rain today, a nice steady one, and that has made it a bit cooler.

    Did you have thyroid surgery? Sorry I'm just now catching up. I had it in 2003, had the right side removed.

    Have a great evening,

  8. Hi! Tonya,

    Sooo pleased to hear you had fun on the weekend and enjoyed yourself.

    No rain here yet and we are still in the heat wave. Scorching heat! Next week, we should have some relief. Yeah!

    Hope all is going well for you. Take care ok.

    Have a great weekend!

    Blessings & Hugs,
