Well, this time Mother Nature chose to dump it on us.  Since around 2 p.m.  it's been snowing a fine, steady snow and at first it was only laying on the grass and stones but it's beginning to lay on the roads and sidewalks now.  I think we might be in for it.  It's suppose to last until sometime after midnight.  I don't think I'll stay up and watch for I to stop. 

I have to work tomorrow but not until 11 a.m. and I'm sure my nice neighbor will have me snow blown out by then.

Have to go fee the doggies....me too.  Enjoy your evening!  By the way....Television stinks has very little to offer these days!

So far all we have had is very light snow fall....but not for long. I just came in from walking the pup and it has started up with a light snow/rain?? I hope we don't get a lot and Jane you don't need any!!

Lazy day here, gathered what I am to take to the city tomorrow...guess you can say I got all my ducks in order.  Now with the pup I have to take his food and water along with the big water jug for Babe.  We did get a garbage pail of ashes taken to the dump.

Jane, yes , you're right...not much worth watching on tv. I am watching Oak Island Mystery on Mon and find that interesting for now.

Decorah Eagles: Congratulations to Mom & DM2 on their 3rd egg laid at 7:05 PM on 3-2-2019

Shirley

I forgot to check today, thank you Mycheal. Beautiful bird but looks so cold. I've never been watching when the male shows up with food.  I was watching one nested near my house a few years ago when the male dropped down into the lake below, I heard a duck squawk but happened so fast all I saw was the male taking food to the nest. I quit looking, know it is life in the wild but I felt sorry for the duck. They aren't nesting at that spot anymore.

JaneS

The snow is still coming down and I'm stlll ignoring it.  I'm going to go to bed and hope it disappears by morning.  Sleep well my friends and may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone..

The snow stopped :thumbup:  No dance this morning other than happy dance!!

We are off to the city this morning to do a bit of shopping then met daughter in love for lunch. Son has gone back out on the road this morning or he would have joined us.

I have yet to see the male eagle but he must drop food off to her??? We did see 1 eagle at the dump yesterday and I wondered where the other 3 were, maybe they too are sitting on nests?? We no longer see feral cats at the dump and I am sure that is because of the eagles. We take our pup out on a leash, when he ages to a good size then maybe he can go one his own in the fenced yard.

Still no sign of our June..or Phyliss and Joy?? February 23 rd was the last time June posted.

Larry hope today is a better day for you.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  AMY, I've been wondering how long it's been since JUNE posted but I hadn't checked yet.  That's pretty long for her to be gone.  I worry about her all the time.  A while back, I printed her picture and I have it hanging in my office so I think of her several times a day. 

The roads have been plowed and there's not enough on my driveway to worry about.  If Steve doesn't get to it, I'll just barrel through it.  I'm not going to try to shovel AND work at WM all in one day.  I know my limits.

We're waiting for the doggies boinger and I'm thinking about getting my shower while I wait. 

Tomorrow is the Grand Opening for a new Mennonite store right down the road from me.  I've heard it's a combination On Premises Bakery, Deli and Fresh Produce place with some other items for convenience.  I'm going to the Grand Opening tomorrow and see for myself.  Since it's right on my through track to most of my places, I've been watching it go up since they began building last Fall.   Should be interesting.  Fun, too.

I hope you all have a great day, safe trip, productive time, feel better, stay warm, whatever it is that pleases you.  And  I hope we hear from our missing persons....especially JUNE!

I think I'm awake.  The process is pretty slow this morning.  I slept very well last night and apparently I don't want to give that up yet. :sleepy:

Not hearing from June is bothering me, too.  I hope we hear something soon.  And, thank you, Larry, for checking in even when you don't feel like saying very much. You are on my mind, too.

Yesterday was a sunny but cold day outside and inside it was calm, relaxed day.  And then rain came in again late in the evening.  Rain was not heavy and we escaped the high winds.  Today it is cloudy and dreary but not raining.

I agree on how terrible television programing is now.  I watched a little golf yesterday afternoon but mostly just read.  I find that I don't watch very much cable tv but spend quite a lot of time viewing something on a streaming channel such as Netflix, etc. I am very close to cutting the cord to the tv programing I get from Spectrum.  Disgusted at the quality of tv that I get for the high cost.  I have better places to spend my money.

Breakfast and laundry are calling so must get on with my day.

Good Morning Everyone, It is 1º here this morning and the school closer's must have got out side there self and Sean how cold it rely  is , our schools are closed. even through warm clothes your skin hurt yesterday.
hope our June shows up safe and in good shape. I have no idea who to get holed where she lives to check with. maybe she will here i request and report in. we need to someone that knows how to make a folder with local phone #'s in it to call and check on folks. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning everyone, still snowing and it looks like we got  the 10 inches predicted. The pine trees look beautiful. Looks like the snow is not fluffy like was predicted. Just now on the news they showed one of the reporters outside making snowballs and the wind blew snow off branches he was standing under and you could hardly see him with the small white out around him. Looking out it is beautiful. Just the kind kids would be out enjoying. Just heard we have 16 inches of snow. No wonder it looks beautiful.

LARRY  sorry to read you are still tired. Recovery is slow but you are still with us. That we thank God for.

LLOYD  sure enough nice snow here for you r snow cream but I am not about ready to go out and get the snow. If I bundled up enough to keep warm I would not be able to bend over and scoop
some up.

JANE  hope you do not have to go to work today. I was watching a woman here clean her car ad then try to get out of her parking spot and she got stuck trying to move the car.

SHIRLEY  I must admit I used to love checking photos and always admired Jack for his knowledge of new things to do. He had offered to do a slideshow of some pictures I had but before I could even answer him SN shut us out. Wish you were here now. You could take your sno donut out and slide on some of the hilly places here. My daughter has that courage you mentioned. She always was a brave girl.

Does anyone have June's son's email or her DIL's website? I used to have it but when this lemon was cleared back to original I lost them.

PHYLLIS  I was awakened too early with the plow here. He lets the plow fall so hard  I will be surprised if the pavement starts to crack. I was awakened by that guy much too early.

LLOYD 30° now but by this time tomorrow we might be down to 10° according to the weather guesser.

Have a good day.

Hi Everyone.  We are to have a cloudy and much cooler day today with it staying the mid-50's although the sky is currently clear and we have  sun at the moment.  We had a lot of rain yesterday and in the late afternoon we and other areas around us were in a tornado warning areas.  We were ok but the area just North of us had two people hurt and trees down and property damage.  Just checking in this morning.  I took a shower this morning and it left me pretty exhausted, which isn't saying much.  I will just take things easy once again today, which seems to have become my way of life.

Joy

Good morning to all !

Amy, I always think I have posted, but sometimes I only post over in the Bait and Tackle board.  I just don't always post in both places. But, I do usually post in one or the other.

We lucked out on the snow. Didn't get as much as we were supposed to, but it is to be very cold all week.

I slept in a little bit and now am in a rush to get through here, as I need to get myself dressed, as today I get my hair done.

So, I will just say that I wish everyone a wonderful day....Try to enjoy the day doing whatever you have planned.

I've been home for a bit.  WM wasn't very busy today.  Everyone must have done their shopping over the weekend getting ready for the BIG snow.  It did snow but it didn't last.  It snowed for about 4 hours before it began to lay on the roads, driveways, and sidewalks.  There wasn't even enough on my driveway to bother shoveling.  It was only what I've always called "drive over" snow. 

Now I'm going to go check out the zzzzzs on the sofa and see if any will attach themselves to me.  Tomorrow is going to be a busy day with no chance of checking zzzzs. 

No June yet?  Darn?  I sure hope and pray she's OK...just tired!

Has been a long day but a fun day. Costco wasn't busy so we made good time in there  and met up with daughter in love for lunch. A stop at Fabricland where I found out  my membership had lapsed. So after renewing my membership I left them some money! Also had to renew our Costco membership so now we are good to go till next year.

Power was still off until 4:05 pm . Now they have the lines all up on new poles and running. We didn't have to listen to the generator for long   but thankful to have it at times like this.

Jane, are you out making snow angels?? Our WM in the city is going more towards the self check out and I refuse to use them One lady was looking after 12 tills! That is 11 jobs gone. Told the girl that I won't use them rather talk with her. :)

Better put some groceries away..

Amy, I honestly never thought about the self-check outs causing job loss.... that's a big DUH... I use them most of the time because the people monitoring them are always so friendly & chat or help when not busy with someone else. I use the other lines when only one or two ahead of me.

Oh, Gloria, wouldn't it be fun to have that much snow to slide down the hill on????  I really would take turns with you, picture it... two old broads dying laughing as we slide down a hill!  Someone with the white coats would be waiting for us at the bottom, you think?  :2funny:

Jane, I had the drive over snow today as well.... didn't even take the shovel to make the edge of the driveway, something I normally do because I have sprinkler heads pretty near that edge & have driven over them before.  ::) The chill index was below zero all day so not the kind of weather to play in.

I called my doctor's nurse today to explain about the Echo test results & my plan of attack. She is a sweetie & let me get the whole story out, why going to him & not the cardio for meds. Want to get rid of the sinus problems before trying another type blood pressure med... got to do something as the internet tells me that a top number of 40 is very bad... and mine is at 60, time to get serious. BP is one thing that does a number on this one valve. Anyway, first things first, BP has always been high but I have been very bad lately with salt, chips & cheese puffs, etc. I will cut back, will do whatever I can before trying more pills. Awful when the side effects are scarier than the problem.

Hi to all, have cats wanting attention so will be back later to visit. Everyone take care & thanks for all that have checked in..... as I have always told my kids, "I don't want to waste my worrying!"

I'm on my way to Dreamland.  I have a busy day tomorrow beginning with doggie care and then a visit to the Grand Opening of the new Mennonite store right down the road from me.  I'm eager to see what they have to offer.  One of their vendors checked out through my line on Friday and clued me in.  It's going to be a fresh produce, deli and on site bakery with some other things that go with the deli and bakery items.  I'm guessing thing like bread, milk, coffee, tea and other drinks.  I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

I'm still missing JUNE!  God protect her, please! 

Good night to everyone else and I'll see you tomorrow!  May God bless us, every one!

P.S.  SHIRLEY and GLORIA, If you don't invite me to the sledding party, I'm going to be very offended and I might not smile for several days!

GOOD EVENING.... Just wanted to stop in and see if there might be a post from Our June.... 

We are off to Arizona tomorrow.  I will check in when I can. 

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND.

Amy

Good morning everyone.
Mercy me tis cold out -15° F. VON day today and after she leaves it will be in town to pick up our tax papers as they are done, then drop off scripts at the pharmacy. While there I might as well get my second shingles shot. I have been putting it off when I know snow is coming and don't need the sore arm while snow blowing.

Jenny, hope your Dad is feeling better.

Ok ladies, I am also in on the sledding party. Used to do a lot of it in the winter and in the summer we used flattened cardboard to slide down the hill. We were lucky as the hill was in walking distance for us.

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I had an email from Jackie/Vanilla some time during the night and she says there is something "at the bottom" where you can see who has visited the site even if they don't post.  She said that June's name is there.  To her, that indicates that she visited but maybe was unable to post.  I'm going to check it out after I post.  If any of you know what she's referring to, clue me in because I don't know. 

I have to get my day started.  Lots to do before my meeting this afternoon.  Meeting is here so....cleaning, putting stuff away, whatever needs attention.

Enjoy your day Everyfriend! Make I your own all the way!

It is a little encouraging that June at least looked in to S&F.  I hope she will feel like posting something to us the next time she looks in.

Everything going along OK here so far today.  Of course, it's early yet and who knows what the rest of the day may bring.  Only good things, I hope.

I'm working on taxes and hope to get those finished in a couple of days.  Not a job that I enjoy.  But, who does?

Take care, All.

Hi Everyone. Another beautiful morning although cloudy but the sun is suppose to shine this afternoon with a high of 53.  Pat has gone to a routine doctor's appointment but shouldn't be gone too long.  Today is the day I have to fill my medicine boxes but it a job I always dread for some strange reason.  I am beginning to wonder when I will turn the corner and begin to feel better.  Our Sunday School class had a chili party last evening and friends brought us containers of chili and soup and corn bread that were left so we have meals prepared for several evenings.  Once again I have read all of the postings but am just going to check in as not up to making individual comments.

Joy

Good  morning.  ANother cold morning, but the sun is shining

Just want to say Hi   and  let you all know that I am up and "at em",  LOL

I need to get a move on , as I am going out a little later to get my taxes done.  Won't take  me too long,  and I will stop and pick up something to bring home for dinner.  Right now, I am thinking about the Shrimp Special dinner from Popeye's.  Fried butterfly shrimp with fries,  biscuit and coleslaw.  Then,  I  will play cards tonight.

Always glad to see you show up Larry. I have  not  had any chili for a long time. The corn bread goes good with that.

Have a pleasant  day.

How about we all take a cyber trip to visit Gloria with all that snow... find a hill and have fun!!!  Y'all come, I will find enough of these Sno-Nuts for everyone.  They were made by Flexible Flyer about 35 years ago, about how long I've had this one. Great design with the hand holds on each side so you can flip it under your seat and then sit down on the top of the hill & go sailing down. Keep feet out front, they are your brakes!  "Picture it".  Great memories last forever.... bring 'em on......  :snowball:  :snowman:
