Has Google Reader made a new appearance to your blog? When I first opened mine, it appeared that way, but I thought it might be my imagination. Was your day a hot one today? Ours started off not to bad, but that soon changed. Do you have a remedy for an ear ache? Is there a simple fix? or do I have to make a trip to the doctor's office. I really don't want to do that with having  an appointment in about a month. I have three trips next month to the eye doctor, primary doctor, and to get that lovely mammogram done. I know you have to do it, but I just wish they would find a new way so they didn't hurt afterwards.

The weekend was rather quiet. I got my car serviced and spent time at the Nursing Home with hubby. I got a wake up call today from Louisiana. We talked until my cell phone battery was almost dead. It kept telling me it was a low battery. He is working such crazy hours. He had to be to work at 11:00 P.M. tonight, but he likes the variation of the job. He doesn't do the same thing all the time.  I told him to call us so we don't wake him up. He had to make the choice to watch the fireworks or go to bed because of having to be to work early the next morning. Needless to say, he didn't watch any  fireworks. I heard them last night late. They woke me up. The Mustang team made up from college teams finally won in 14 innings 2-1. They always do fireworks after home games.

The boys are doing their 4H community service project this afternoon. They were going to the Broken Bow where they work with handicap children. They always have a horse show where those kids can come and participate. They need people to lead horses, walk along side of the rider, and etc.

The fingers have been busy embroidering on a custom order that I got. I always try to get them done as soon as possible. 

I have really enjoyed the trip pictures that those of you have posted. It is going to be my way of traveling this summer for sure. I appreciate your sharing them with us. You have visited some wonderful places that I can only dream about.  Hope you all have a wonderful week. Take care

Shirley...I haven't had any problems with Google (yet). Wish I could help. The earache...sometimes it's sinuses so you may want to try an antihistamine like Benadryl. There are also very safe ear drops that you can use if it might be a wax problem.

We won't be taking a summer vacation either, just the lake and I feel blessed.

Stay cool this week, we are going to be in the 90's.

Sorry your ear hurts. Mine do a lot when I get water in them. Try sweet oil or some other over the counter ones. They have some for might try that. An allergy pill like Jane said might help.
I like that the boys have a project with their horses with handicap kids. I have seen programs that show how they relate to each other.
It is supposed to get really hot here this week as well.....not my favorite weather for sure.
Stay cool and hoping your summer goes okay.

I am so sorry that you have an earache, Shirley. I don't know what will work besides an antibiotic if you have an infection.
How nice that you were able to talk to your son for a nice long chat. Glad you got to spend some time with your hubby and get some of your embroidery work done. Blessings to you- xo Diana

Reader is already defunct, but Google will dump all Reader subscription data on the 15th. So if you still need to transfer your reading list to another service, you need to download your Google reader list before noon Monday. It's easy. Here's one article with useful links:

Sorry Shirley, I'm dumb when it comes to all things Google. Sorry to hear about your earache. Hope you feel better soon.

Um, yeah, me too Shirley. I just read everyone's blog posts off of my dashboard. I don't use Reader.
I am glad you have custom embroidery to do.
I have prayed for you.♥
