Good morning everyone..

Going to make this quick as we are having planned power outage today from 7 - 10 am to up grade the lines.

Shirley  :hb3:  :hb2: a Happy Birthday to Andy :hb3:  :hb2: today.

Lloyd, I think while you are having your heart problem close to home is best till the Dr gets it straightened out.

Jenny, keep the snow your way please . ;D

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone, 21° and it really is still November still or have I slept till January? Already tired of the cold, first time I remember it bothering me. Now I know I am old. I kept putting a warm wet wash cloth on my eye yesterday and that helped more than the drops did. Seems fine this morning. I know I had dry eyes and funny how the tears can run from an eye. First time it bothered me is several years.

LLOYD  sorry your heart acted up on you. Take care of yourself. No more heavy work or stress. What you just went through in court was stressful for you. Now would be the time for you to find a smaller place and sell your farm. That is now too much work for you. I know you love it there with all the work you have done in a lifetime.

AMY  I remember hanging clothes on the line when they froze to the line before I even got a clothes pin on it. But if it was windy they dries so soft and smelled so good. Much better than a dryer.

PHYLLIS  you in your recliner yesterday and me laying on the couch most  of the day. We sure did not do much did we?

JANE  my son had to replace the stove in the apartment I had. His wife's brother even ruined that, My oldest granddaughter has moved in and turned the oven on to bake something and it doesn't work. It cost him a fortune to fix the apartment up. Even my fridge that I left there was so full of mold he had to throw it away. I just cannot imagine how in 5 years he ruined what was a great apartment, better than this one except for the stairs.

LLOYD  wow that was a lot of hours to sleep but y must have needed it or you would have been awake earlier.

SHIRLEY  my eye feels more normal this morning, thank God.

Have a good day.

 Gloria the Mistake was selling the farm in the first place. we sold it with lifetime rights to live and control it for life. the good friend turned out not to be a true friend he has and still is trying to take it away from us. we went to court and got what was supposed to be for two mores. but he is not leaving us alone. has had his lawyer write us orders to vacate. he is not even honoring  what they drew up. so we will be back in court soon. we will just leave to god to fix it. the lawyer has several infractions lined up he has and will not honer that the court set up. the friend of his he tried to stick on us and did not do what they agreed to has a lot of his things in our lower level and will not remove and now has left with his trucking job. just more stress. they say the will not put him in jail just passable some fine. that dose not help or get the $$$ back we have already spent. so pray that god gets it fixed. Have a great day.

Sorry I've been neglecting all of you but I've been giving all my extra attention to a little black girl who doesn't understand where her friend has gone and why she doesn't come back.  She's been doing a lot of moping but she does love taking walks and we've done a lot of that.

Both my visiting daughters have gone back home.  Christy arrive home in Maryland safely and Cindy is spending the night with her daughter in Baltimore who will take her to the airport to catch an early plane back to Texas tomorrow.  We had some nice conversations and they, with my Lewisburg daughter gathered at my house a lot of the time.  That was nice because they knew I was concerned about Mickie.

I'll be off to bed soon and then tomorrow Mickie will be alone for 3 hours until my cleaning dynamo comes.  She watches her but from a distance when things are running.  And Tammy will feed her around noon so she'll like that.

I said I'd take Frankie to keep a Dr. appointment tomorrow afternoon but I think I'll just take Mickie along for the ride.  Frankie said it won't take long so we can sit in the car and wait for her and cuddle a bit and she won't have to stay home alone.  The pet store is nearby and pets are welcome there so maybe we'll pop in there for a loo around.

Now I have to stash some stuff before Tammy comes and then get to bed.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Jane, I was watching on the computer or TV about a cat that looked just like Tommy that loved to ride in a car, good story & all I could think of was... "but why does Tommy throw up at the thought of going anywhere???"  He is such a head case... I was watching him come across the pool area, after being outside for hours... I knew he had climbed over the fence and back in so wondered how he managed with his sore leg.... then I realized he wasn't limping at all until he got to the door & saw me. All of a sudden he was in great pain, hesitated to lift his leg to step over the sliding door track, limped like his leg was broken when I gave him a tone of sympathy..... talk about a faker!!!!  Our German Shepherd love to ride in the car, our favorite saying was, "if only the kids were as good.........."  Take Mickie & enjoy the company. 

I used to take our blue jay for car rides and since Pooh loved McDonald's fries, when we pulled into the drive through Pooh would jump into his cage so I could open the window to order. Never opened the window till the cage door was locked "just in case".  Anyway, on one trip Pooh & I were alone in the station wagon, cage right behind the driver's seat with seats folded down... Pooh saw the golden arches & got ready to order but I didn't pull in or close the cage door. That bird was so upset it hopped on my shoulder & ran down my arm to the hand on the steering wheel, turned around to face me with the dardest look in it's eyes... like, "didn't you SEE those arches?"  I was laughing so hard I turned around & went back for french fries!

Nice the kids were around, they were raised with love & know how to return it... right? 

Gloria, I soaked my knee tonight but only for an hour, just couldn't sit any longer. Then after washing the salt off, while it was warm from the heat pad, I rubbed in some Hempvanna & think it helped.. I'm disappointed with the doctors & all the techs running the tests but not telling me exactly what the tests & X-ray shows. My son & SIL's doctors both went into detail of what their show. I'm going to check with the doctor that sent me on this wild goose chase to see if he or anyone has actually looked at the test results or just calling it old age & let it go. I didn't injure it & never any joint problems until the pain under the knee & that wasn't anything to do with the joint. Been more than 3 weeks now & pain is no better, I'm just learning how to navigate without yelling.  Past my bedtime & I was up at 5:00 am. Sweet dreams & God Bless All! 

Gloria

Good morning everyone, 31° and feels damp, rain is in the forecast.  Most of today and tomorrow. It seems the dampness just penetrates the walls or I am sensitive to it, of course Mr. Art H Ritis does not help.

LLOYD  I remember when you talked about making that deal with your former friend. He sure did turn out not much of a friend and I pray things turn out right for you.

AMY  I would dislike having no power in here. Every thing is electric so would not even be able to have a cup of hot coffee. The only place with heat would be the lobby  and they do have a generator so the elevator would run. Guess they do have to have it running in case they have to call the rescue.

JANE  I know you are feeling sad about Annie bur how to explain it to Mickie is impossible.

SHIRLEY  the last dog we had  all she needed was to hear the keys rattle and she was at the door ready to go for a ride. Only with family though, she would not get into any other car. My CNA called me last week and said she did tear  something behind her knee. She is still o sick leave and has to go for another MRI this week. Close to 2 months now and I sure miss her. The ones they have been sending me leave much to be desired, don't think I would have any of them do any cooking.
My second son was here Saturday and I could tell his shoulders were sore, he has arthritis in both of them. I gave him the extra jar I had of the Hempvana and I hope it helps him as much as it has me.

Goodness every one else must have been busy yesterday. I think we miss all the ones that used to post here. Some just disappeared and other went home to God.
Just looked out and it has started to rain, will rain into tomorrow afternoon according to the forecast.

Have a good day.

Good morning everyone..

No snow to deal with this morning. yippie! Need to get ready to take the van in. Washed it last night, couldn't have the fellow working on it when it was filthy!

Gloria, that is the same was with these two ,rattle the keys and they are at the door. They will have to stay home this morning but will pick them up on the way back when I take Kyle over for coffee. This is also going to be a first for Jesse as the cage has been taken out and he had better behave or it will go right back in.

Shirley, pets know how to get our sympathy and we are more than willing to oblige .

Jane, happy to see you had a good time with your family. Mickie will enjoy the time out with you and Frankie, two to make a fuss over her. :)

Lloyd, hope you got a good nights sleep.

Joy and Phyllis are missing. :(

Better scoot.

Enjoy your day everyone.

I'm here but only for a minute.  I have an early doctor's appointment so I can't tarry long.  It takes me much longer to get ready to leave the house so have to start early. 

Dreary weekend here but no rain yesterday.  Gusty winds and overcast all day.  Rain predicted for this afternoon.

I agree with you, Shirley.  It is so hard to get answers from any of the medical people.  Very frustrating.  Hope you find out what is causing your knee pain.

Must get busy.  Take care, All.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Mickie is under the desk waiting with me for the boinger.  She got to lick the food spoon all by herself, both sides!  Yesterday, she went with me to my daughter's and me their Black Lab.  The two of them sniffed each other, Trip followed Mickie all over the house as she explored and then both of them hung around the kitchen while we ate supper.  I took her out in Cathy's yard and she had to explore all of it.  It's about 3 or more sizes bigger than ours and she loved being out.  It's all fenced so she could really explore.

SHIRLEY, I think you might be saying that Mickie is moping to attract attention and that's a possibility but I know she misses Annie because she's always looking over at Annie's little bed and then at me as if to say, "Where is she?"
 

I already mentioned that today is a work day (24 hours down and 24 to go).  It will be so nice not to HAVE to go anywhere.  I won't have to even think about the weather!  We have 8 minutes till the boinger so I better finish this and get moving. 

I wish you all a lovely day!
Make it your own in every way!

Good Morning everyone.It 35ºand sunny calling for 55º today. I did have a good night's sleep with only one Nature call. Have a good day everyone just as you like it.

Lloyd

Shirley

Oh, NO, Jane, never even considered Mickie faking her feelings.... I do believe our fur babies grieve as much as humans. When LaurenKat went into Cas' room and found him dead she came out of there like a shot and as long as she lived, never went into that room again (more than 2 years). She did follow me around and beg to be held at first, but I didn't have any sitting time to spare. She was like a tiny ghost around here. She never did warm up to Tom & Tiger, kept them in line day & night. When we traveled she wouldn't eat the first 3 days until she had to use the litter box & then she was okay. She had a mind of her own.

Phyllis, not sure why they have avoided doing an MRI (cost?), my insurance covers everything. I'm really sad to think my son is facing more years with this type pain before they consider replacing his whole knees. He had the "orthoscopic" done and that didn't help at all, they tell him that replacement only lasts so long & he is too young (born in '63).

We are supposed to get to 70° today so will do a few things in the yard. Not going to pick up more leaves, so far I'm the only one on the whole street to have put out bags of leaves for trash service! A couple houses have had their fall clean up done by yard service & they take the leaves with them.... but as you know, leaves don't all come down at one time & this year quite a few trees are hanging onto their leaves longer. My sweet gum tree is full, brown but hanging onto it's leaves.













JaneS

It's time to say "Good Night".  It's been a busy day and I'm tired and ready to hit the hay.

We (Mickie and I) still miss our Annie and I'm sure that will be a long time going but the memories are crowding back on me.  We did have a lot of good times together.

SHIRLEY, I have two dogwood trees in my yard both planted the same time both grown to the same size.  One is bare and the other has not begun to lose it's leaves.  Go figure!

Tomorrow, all I have planned is to pick up my granddaughter and take her to the dr.  I thought it was today but it's tomorrow.  She's coming home with me after and staying for supper.  I'm thinking spaghetti.  She loves my sauce.

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone.

We had a wee bit of a snow fall during the night..just a waltz with the shovel.

Got my van back and not just the oil change but caliper and  front brakes. Now I am good to go.

Today is take Kyle to pick up  material for another trug and I am going to wash floors and fix a quilt. Not happy with the border so will reduce it and put on another one.

Jane, for the longest time Babe looked for Golden Girl, at feeding time Babe would go to check out GG 's dish which had been removed . In time all got back in the swing of things but the missing doesn't stop. I am still working on that part.

Phyliss, hope you got good results from your Dr.

Shirley, my friend needed her knees done and was told the same thing. She had to live with that until she got older, which she didn't as she got cancer and passed. I sometimes wonder if the Dr's experienced the pain of the patient, would they correct the problem faster?

Better get a move on here.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone, 35° and a drizzle right now but heavier later, how nice, could be white stuff falling.

AMY  our last dog did't need to hear a rattle, just taking them out of a pocket was enough and she would be at the door waiting. On Thursday after supper my daughter would go to the bank to cash her pay check and the dog knew it and wold be at the door waiting for her. The tellers at the bank knew she had the dog with her so would give her a dog biscuit  and she wondered if that was why the dog wanted to go all the time.

PHYLLIS  like you it takes me a long time to do anything in the mornings. I like making my appointments for 1pm so I know I have time to get ready to go.

JANE  what is it now 10 or 11 more work days? You will be so happy when your time is your own at last.

LLOYD  have a great day.

SHIRLEY  my CNA was going for her second MRI for he left leg-knee. I hate the noise in that thing, the CT scan was much easier and faster. Last week when  the landscapers were her they sure had the blowers pushing all the leaves into one huge pile and then a truck backed up and the put a hose to the pile into the truck and sucked them all up. Glad they had a canvas over the load so they didn't end up all over.

AMY  it has been 7 years since my DIL called me and told me she had to put MY dog down and still every time I go to their house I look for her. When I went to their home she was my shadow, tried to get into my car so it was hard to get out, she tried getting on my lap but no room with the steering wheel and she would be talking to me the whole time.

Have a good day.

Doctor's visit yesterday went pretty well over all but she added 2 more medicines and wants me back in 3 months.  I'm pretty tired of keeping track of and taking all the medication every day but hoping the new ones will help with the migraines.  We'll give them a fair chance.....I guess.

It would be nice if we could have a little sunshine today to brighten things up but we'll take what we get.  I'm grateful that it will be a little warmer and hopefully, no rain.

I'm feeling a little down and don't want to inflict my mood on all of you here so I'll just wish everybody a good day and go get some breakfast.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I've been up for a long time but getting "attem" is the hard part.  Mickie and I went for a loooong walk so we got our legs stretched and our exercise in.  Then I did some stuff around here.  I just can't seem to get organized.

I had some bad news last night.  My cousin in Wisconsin who practically grew up with my sister and me has a very advanced stage of cancer and has been given 1 to 3 months to live.  I've been trying to call her for the past three weeks...ever since she called and I wasn't available.  She doesn't answer.  I would like to talk to her one more time.  I would appreciate a prayer or two that she doesn't suffer!

I have to get some lunch and get ready to go pick up Frankie for her appointment.  Then I'm stopping at the bank and maybe the local store for a couple things.

You all take good care of yourselves.  I need all the friends I can keep!

I wish you all a lovely day!

Both Kyle and I waltzed with the shovels  to clean the driveway which is now bare!

Must be my day for dancing as the vacuum cleaner commanded a dance as did the mop! Floors cleaned, neighbours dogs nails clipped and I finished off a cancer quilt. That is it ,no more tonight.

Jane I am sorry to hear of your cousins illness, prayers for her that she doesn't suffer.

Phyliss, hope you feel better. Can you get your meds in a blister pack ,would that help you?

Lloyd, LLOYD..LLOYD..where are you? Hope all is well with you and Nancy.

I'm off to Dreamland.  I got a head start on the sofa.  There must have been a lot of Zs hanging around in there because almost the minute I sat down, they grabbed me!  Now I'm hoping some of them are hanging out in the bed.

I hope everyone who feels bad will feel better tomorrow and everyone who feels good will continue to do so!  AMY, I hope you know that's Canadian Snow and it has to stay on that side of the border!

Frankie and I had a nice time this afternoon.  She told me that her mother asked her ho many unmarried 26 year olds she knows that like to "hang out" with their grandmothers.  I said, "how many do you know?"  And she said, "I'm the only one!"  I guess that makes me a pretty lucky old lady!

Now I'm off to bed.  I wish you all a peaceful sleep and a happy tomorrow. And may God bless us, every one!

Oh, my goodness!!! Amy, that is gorgeous!  I don't quilt but my mother had one she pieced together before she married and had the Salvation Army ladies hand quilt for her (it is/was a fund raising business with the group where Mother lived). Mother also made small quilts for her grands. My MIL used to quilt but as time went on would quilt together with sewing machine after piecing by hand. I've never seen one with so many pieces.... beautiful and do think it would be perfect hanging on a wall instead of on a bed. Thanks for posting, Bubble!

Unusually warm again today, but chance of rain & even T-storm this evening. Another cold front tomorrrow. We desperately need rain, fire danger warning with wind & dry leaves & grasses.

Tiger woke me up about 4:00 am wanting to go OUT.... Tom had been out all night and wanted IN, so I had breakfast & hope some zzzzzzzs are hiding in that bed yet. Tom ate his salmon and loves the morning when I open a new can. Sure has gone up in price since Cas started feeding these fur babies a spoonful for breakfast.

Hope everyone has a good day full of love and peace and throw in a little joy!  Shirley

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm up and pretty soon I'll get attem.

AMY, I posted my comment over in photos but I'll say it again.  That quilt is stunning!  I just about knocked my eyes out!  You should be very proud.  There are hours and hours of LOVE in that quilt!

I have some news to report.  Last night Mickie moved into Annie's sleeping spot on the bed sometime during the night.  I woke up this morning to find her there.  I think she might have given up on Annie's return.  And maybe the little extras will compensate in some way.  We'll see if she uses that spot tonight.  I hope so.

Today is a WM day After today is over it will be 32 down and 16 to go...hours that is!  I'm really beginning to look forward to the end.  When I don't get something done now, I tell myself, "I'll get to it after I retire."  It feels good!

I wish you all a lovely day!

It is supposed to be a sunny and warmer day today and I'm looking forward to it.  Sorry, I was a little down yesterday.  Today will be better, I think.

Amy, the Log Cabin quilt is beautiful and that is a favorite pattern of mine.  I'm amazed at your talent and how quickly you put these quilts together along with all the other duties you have to do.  My mother did piecing and had the quilting done by a woman in town.  I tried to make a quilt in a pattern called Kansas Trouble.  I found I had no skill and no patience so the quilt was never finished.  To my knowledge my mother made several pieced quilts but only made one appliqued quilt in a Water Lily pattern.  The hand quilting was done by a group of church women and it won several prizes.  It hangs on the wall in my family room.

Breakfast is calling.

that quilt is beautiful,Nancy has done a lot of that kind of work in the past.Most of them burnt when the old house burnt. we Have two quilting frames (large ones) and one of those small lap ones,but she gave the little one to our daughter. she now spends a lot of time coloring in adult coloring books. main thing is she is content while she is doing that and not pestering me. 44º and clear here today heading for 65º and cloudy the weather guesser is saying, Have a great day we are going to hair parlor today Nancy is going to get a perm. and I a haircut before I have to start paying dog tax.

Good morning everyone, slept late and my CNA is here already. Just letting you know I am alive and well. We are in our third day of rain, gloomy weather.

AMY  WOW that quilt is beautiful. Whoever gets that  will be lucky.  Talk about an Heirloom that is what you made.

Grr she is  talking my ears off so better get off of here before I scream.

I am back. Laundry is done and the bed is made up with fresh sheets. She is a talker, too, and I try to ignore it but she will say the same thing until I answer. It is still raining and I have not been outside all week. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny but only in the 30's so I will bundle up in layers and go out for awhile. Getting to have cabin fever. Had a phone call last evening from the lady next to me wondering if I had been sick because she had not seen me all week and did not hear me and others have asked her if she had seen me. Better get out before they call emergency for me. Most folks in here are like the ones in the SS when one of us is missing. I just about had time to dress this morning before CNA got here. I really dislike them coming so early in the mornings. Will be so happy when my regular CNA gets back with her hours from 12 to 2. After 2 years at than time I can have my coffee and breakfast in peace and quiet while being in the SS. I did manage 1 cup of coffee while she was here and had my breakfast after she left at almost noon time.

JANE  only a few more days to go and your life will belong to you at last.

PHYLLIS  so many times I tried to either crochet or knit  a Log Cabin afghan and always ended it tearing it apart. Did you ever make one?

WOW no one posted since I did this morning. Joy is still absent, hope she is OK.

Take care every one.
Have a good rest of the day.

I'm home from work, Mickie and I have had our walk and lunch and now I'm thinking seriously of taking a short nap! 

PHYLLIS, I'm glad to hear you're feeling better today.  Cherish that quilt on your wall.

I'll check back in later to see what everyfriend is up to.

I had too much to say while ago to stop & write, had to make a fast run to the store & now all I can think about is a NAP!  It is drizzling out so all 3 cats wanted to check it out.  Tom is sitting on the door step but doesn't want in and doesn't want me to get far from the door in case he changes his mind.

Jane, sad to watch the pets realize their buddy isn't going to come home again.... they understand more than we know and I am sure she is as concerned for you as you are for her.

Phyllis, glad today looks a little brighter... sometimes sadness just sets in....so ((((hugs)))). This is really a gray day in KS, trees are bare or half bare and everything brown & gray. My rain gauge is still out, not supposed to freeze tonight & I miss not knowing how much because it's so rare! 

I bought my 2 turkeys today, along with all those other fixins I need. This year the whole turkey was cheaper than buying just a breast for putting with the noodles and the 1 gr-son that loves drumsticks will get a couple to take home. I pulled out the heavy duty cord to plug the RV in, turned on the frig & freezer & put those turkeys right in. Doubt if they thaw at all before it's down below freezing inside, as cold as it was already. OH, I forgot to get the Reams noodles! I think 3 of the 16 oz packages should be enough. I have a stock pot so big I need to stand on the Coleman step stool to look down inside.

Gloria, I hope your shoulder is not as constant pain as this darn knee. I've never had anything linger this long, like an abscessed tooth... even when not walking it aches & no matter how I pack pillows under & around, hurts all night. Don't remember who mentioned that "if a doctor had this for sure he'd find a cure!"  I can't believe my son has been battling this pain for more than 3 years... had had the orthoscopic on one knee but the doctor doesn't think it is bad enough to do a replacement since "they only last so long..." And he still loves to hike out in the mountains. He said he has a "basket full of different style braces for his knee but nothing really helps". The cold really makes it ache worse... like you, takes the pleasure out of winter!  Are we really THAT old???
