It's Finally Friday......

It's been a busy week for my hubby and me. We have friends visiting us and they will be here for the next six weeks. After that we will be camping with them for a couple of weeks. The are from southern California and come up this way every summer. This time they are looking for a home to buy here though. It becomes a bit trying after a while since we usually plan our dinners together. Breakfast and lunch we are on our own but dinner we have together. It is fun but it's a bit much having someone here all that time. They are really great people and are doing all they can to not be overbearing. They will be in Oregon until October. They go fishing for salmon at the coast in September. He is a master fisherman. If nobody is catching fish, he is. If everybody is catching fish, he is catching the most. I don't know how he does it but he knows all there is to know about fishing.

Our pets seem to be doing better. Chloe is feeling better and isn't limping anymore and Molly is taking her medicine for the thyroid problem and does seem to be drinking water less and even may be gaining a little weight. I am so glad.

I haven't lost any weight in the last several weeks and it's been frustrating me. I am having a bit of a problem and I think I will be calling my doctor to let them know. My acid reflux has worsened. I get up every night and move to the recliner so that I can sleep. I wake myself up in bed coughing. It seems that liquids come up while I am asleep and I feel like I am aspirating. Sometimes I wake up with a mouthful of liquid. The Prilosec keeps it from having an acid taste but it is still coming up. So I know that isn't right. I am wondering also if I have enough restriction. I am able to eat much more than I could before. I usually don't but I don't want to feel hungry. The thing with the Lapband is it is adjustable and needs to be tweaked to find the right fill for me.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I am hoping to finally make it to our Saturday Market tomorrow and the guys are going fishing so the wives will be no doubt shopping tomorrow.

A good day for fishing.........

Here is the catch of the day. Rainbow Trout. Last week we went fishing and I caught the only fish. We have some friends visiting us from So Cal and the husbands went back to the lake yesterday and hubby caught these 2 beauties. He tries and tries to fish and is always willing to take his friends fishing in his boat. The problem is he is always skunked. Everyone but him catch fish. I don't know what it is but he was so tickled to have caught 2 of them yesterday I had to get this picture of his happy grin. Tonight we'll be having a fish fry.

I haven't been on here much lately between Farm Town and our visitors I 've been pretty busy. Not only that but now hubby got on Farm Town and he is trying to reach my level and surpass me so he is spending lots of time on it. Libby you were right! We all are going to need 12 step programs soon. The weather here went from beautiful sunny and low 80s to a crazy thunderstorm like we never see here in Oregon the other night. It looked like a tornado went through our yard. Debris from the trees is everywhere. Since that night (Tuesday) it's been muggy and warm and overcast. We had more rain last night but it was our typical showery rain. Bring back our sunshine!!

The guys are going fishing again on Saturday and us girls will be going to the local farmer's market here in town. I have every intention of going to the farmer's market every Saturday and for some reason I block from my memory until just before they close and so I miss it each week. This week I will have help remembering it.
