GRATITUDE

Well here I sit in a one room shack,
So small folks think it's the "house out back".
Low on food and deep in debt,
But I ain't gettin' worried yet,
There's still some baloney, so thank you Lord.

Now thing's will get better in days to come,
Cause I got faith, and that's more than some.
I ain't stuck outside in the freezin' rain,
And if I feel a little poorly, I can rub out the pain,
I got Ben-Gay, so thank you Lord.

Yes I know you're watching me from above.
You gave me your hand when I needed love.
You lifted me up and helped me find,
Sobriety and peace of mind,
You blessed me, You know that Lord?

Well I guess I'll close and get off your line,
I've spoke about everything on my mind.
There's other folks waitin' here below,
To speak their piece, but before I go,
Just know I'm grateful...Thank You Lord!

COME WITH ME

Come with me to share
a cool and bright garden spring,
to smell the sweet honeysuckle,
and to hear the song birds sing.

Come with me to share
the warmth of the noonday sun,
and to feel the gentle breezes
before the night has begun

Come with me to share
the setting sun from afar,
as the moon yawns and awakens,
and night brings twinkling stars.

Come with me to share
all of nature's awesome gifts.
Take my hand in loving friendship,
as we share heavenly bliss.

Thank you, BUBBLE for our nice new folder for this month.  I loved  everything you shared for us to enjoy. 

 I am late to post and we have a nice new folder for April, I think I will post this a couple of hours early. 

APRIL FOOLS DAY is cancelled this year due to the fact that nothing could possibly top the horror of what we are all dealing with right now!

Sad to say, things seem to be no where near to slowing down according to what we hear today.  So sad to think we will not have the Easter that we all enjoy so much.  No church services....how sad. 

We cancelled our flight to go to Phoenix the end of this week for my Dad's Birthday on the 9th. We knew we probably would have to cancel but we hung in there as long as we could with hope for a change, but the writing is on the wall.  😢😢😩

The golf course was open again today so I spent quite a bit of time trying to get someone with authority to hear our plea to get this place shut down😤😡

PHYLLIS, I have never made Soda Bread, but i love it and might just try to make one.  We bought one for our St. Patrick's Day meal and discovered it was lemon / blueberry soda bread......YIKES!  Well, it was delicious and I hope we can find one with those ingredients again. 

Pleasant dreams to all.  Prays for all of you. 

Jenny

Gloria

gOOD MORNING EVERYONE. Oops sorry for the caps.  I read the posts and
BUBBLE  enjoyed todays goodies and graphics you posted, thank you.

I woke with a film over my right eye and hard to see aything. I have been holding a warm wet facecloth over the eye. My eye doctor told me when this happened before it is nothing to worry about. Just so‪me jell like substance in eyes that break off at times.  Maybe if I go back to bed and get some sleep I will wake with it cleared up?

SHIRLEY  every day on the news it seems there are more cases of the virus here and so far 3 deaths. People in their 90's. My CNA still comes and I am so thankfuil.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good Morning everyone. Thanks  so_P_bubble for the nice post's. it is 44º and clear here this Morning saying we are going to the upper 70's. I hope the day dose not go like it has started, Nancy is in short temper this Morning,snapping like a old bightting sow. and I have not even pinched or said any thing except good morning to her. Gloria sorry you are having problem's with your eye. the warm wet wash rag on my face helps for a eye opener. hope it dose the trick for you also, and your day gets better. hope your weather is better for you today. I hope this virus thing gets fixed soon and we can get to being friendly with everyone soon. I wish you all a great day. happy April, spring is here.

Happy April Fools Day.... my only memorable one was when my daughter put sugar in the salt shaker and ruined everyone's scrambled eggs! A disaster back in those days, not only lack of more eggs but fact no time to scramble more to get them off to school and their father off to work on time! Still, to remember 55+ years later, had to be one special joke!  ;)

Tiger slept with me last night so not a sound sleep. Tom wanted out and Callie in the family room on the couch. Mild weather so Tom thinks he is safe when dark. Crazy cat. I am pretty sure he hangs out with the black cat that came strolling out of the garage yesterday when I was working in the RV. It didn't run, actually looked insulted when I spoke kinda mean to it. I do not need another cat, that's for sure.

Gloria, good that your doctor is okay with the eye problem.... I'm hoping I can get back in to see mine before time to "hit the highway". I am thrilled to know the cataracts aren't as bad as "they" told me (including her).... and hope she knows what to do to fix the glasses. When I look through them one eye at a time, each eye is clearer than I've been able to see for years.... but totally messed up with both eyes open. I've tried over & over to adjust to them but it only gets worse. Glad your CNA is able to still come, people are pretty much locked out around here. One lady (friend of a friend) is dying, in apartment she shares with a daughter & hospice, other daughter not allowed inside since a retirement complex. Daughter on the outside got her out of there and took her to her own home. Have not heard how that went with Hospice. Sure scary times.

Jenny, so sorry you can't be with your father on his birthday, but I'll bet y'all think of a special way to cheer him up. Does he do facetime?  My daughter set me up but I do not like my face showing up close like that. They are all keeping up with their grands that way so if they can explain how I can see & not be seen, I'll join in.  :uglystupid2:  I just had e-mail from either Salida or Buena Vista with a "hope we can invite you back later".... message. Towns must all be in lock down now. Tell your father I am sending Best Wishes for a very Happy Birthday.

Love the graphics and wise sayings, Bubble, thank you. My daughter was one that sucked her thumb until we put the icky stuff on it so she switched to fingers, so we tried tape... Thanks for the new space, great job.

So Nancy isn't in the mood to be teased this morning, Lloyd. Behave yourself! I have a feeling a lot of people are getting tired of being stuck at home so much. Maybe just a drive around to see all the blooming trees. Sure felt good when I got out yesterday. I am thinking about just driving around today. Are the dogwood blooming? My redbud it full of color but not completely open.

I'm sure Amy will be up when I post... my tummy is growling so better get moving. Good Morning to ALL.... :eat:  :cup:

Amy

Good morning everyone.
What a lovely morning..birds are singing and sun is shining.
Have a parcel to mail then home to clean house and make some biscuits and just maybe throw in a soda bread with all this talk. I did post a recipe here for a soda bread.

https://www.seniorsandfriends.org/index.php?topic=782.msg173071;boardseen#new

Bubble, thank you for the new start page..love the poems and graphics. I would imagine it will be a quiet Easter around the world this year.

Gloria, hope your eye is better...warm cloth is so soothing .

Lloyd, hope you and Nancy find peace..life is too short to have ruffled feathers.

Jenny, can you skype with your Dad?

Jane, each day is a healing day...

Shirley, I am up..dogs feed and outside. The doves eggs have hatched ,would dearly love to get a closer look but don't want to scare her away!

Enjoy your day everyone...stay safe!!

Lloyd, Amy beat me to it with a link in her post above to a recipe for Soda Bread.  It's good bread, ask Nancy to try it.  Different from yeast bread but very tasty and makes good toast.

Cloudy and cool here today and we'll be doing a little scratching around the nest and that is about all.  I would like to hear some more about Mary Ann.  Thinking about her and about you, Jane.  I hope you are dealing with the pain a little better.  I'm so glad your kids can come help you with your fur-baby.

angelface555 unless it is just cracked wheat, when it is ground fine it is all white. and you can do that with out bleaching it. if you have a farmer close by that has wheat that has not been treated, get a small amount like a quart or so and grind it in your blender. you can grind it fine or just crack it your self fresh for best taste. make you get clean wheat with out any weavel. you do not want meat in your gravy except sausage or hamburger. Have a great day.

Happy April Oneth!

Gorgeous weather in central Oklahoma.  Severe stuff is still east of us but I know it will be moving west during the next two months.

I drove to the bank yesterday to make a deposit.  First time I'd been outside the complex gates in almost two weeks.  It was nice to see real people doing normal things.

Gloria, I also have the film occasionally.  Eye doctor told me to wet a washcloth and add a drop of baby shampoo to one corner.  Then, as he put it, "gently scrub scrub scrub" and then rinse with the rest of the damp washcloth.  It works - and doesn't sting a bit!
I remembered the old excuse for getting out of an invitation we didn't want to accept was "Oh, I'm sorry.  I have to shampoo my hair".  Had to giggle a bit at the idea of changing that to, "I have to shampoo my eyes". :crazy2:

I might be able to sit on the patio and read today - if the wind doesn't bother my allergies.

Enjoy your day, Everyfriend.

Happy April Fools Day!

Everything is the same here....
The farther  that I go is down to the
curb to meet and greet Kelly as
she is bringing me some grocery's... 

Everyone is keeping their distance,
as needed, with the streets very quiet
out side my window to the world
(usually bustling)...

I hope that everyone is feeling  well...
love 
Sandy

Still OK here - it is so nice to "see" these postings. 

I tried and Don tried to place a message to my doctor. It was impossible with so many extra steps - so she called and I got the information needed.  Some crazy tech person puts so many roadblocks into the sign-on for the office that they told me a lot of people were complaining.  Well, why keep paying someone to muck up the system? 

It is hard to believe April is already here.  We had a beautiful snow covering not too many days ago.  Now, people are out walking their dogs, etc.  School is closed, of course, but the middle and high school kids still are out playing and racing around.

Highways are not as crowded and the air is cleaner (like years ago). One speedster was clocked at
128 mph - I hope he sits in jail for that stunt.

Good morning everyone. It is 56º and partly cloudy @ 7:04 AM central time here in MO. I finely woke up and went to bed at midnight. fairly rested, but probable will take a nap watching T V. it is alright if you girls make all caps so it is easier for us old folks to read. just keep a smile. the best part of a smile is you can keep it your self and give it every one you see at the same time. just smile and the whole world smileys with you. Have a great day everyone.

good morning everyfriend.  had a pretty good night and I hope you all did too.

Good morning everyone, cold rain in the forecast for today and tomorrow, Mother Nature is starting April with more than showers this year.  I have not been out of the house since last week and miss getting some socializing with other tennants. So glad my CNA can get here still. Seems odd wen I watch local news to see most of the staff working from home and in he studio the few stand so far apart. RI had 77 new cases overnight and 2 more deaths, makes 10 in this state so far.

LLOYD  when I got off S&F yesterday I used the warm wet face cloth on my eye again and then laid on the couch with the TV on and just llistened to it. Fell asleep and when I woke my eye was much clearer again. Today back to nomal.

SHIRLEY  so far they have not stopped people from coming in this building. Most that co‌me in are family members or CNAs. I know I would be lost without Yvette, I tell her she has spoiled me.

AMY  the last time this happened with my eye I called my eye doctor and he told me to use the warm wet facecloth and gently massage the eyelid with it. Did that a couple of times and then had a nap, much better when I woke but this morning back to normal.

Just heard on the news that some hotels are taking in the homeless to quarenteen them. Hotels are about empty so a good way to help the homeless.

PHYLLIS  with the CNA I have I am not worried about running out of anything. I have enough food for a month at least. Tuuesday she was at a store and they had TP but let them have 2 large packs and 2 small ones. With her family she gave them the large o and bropu ght me a small 4 pack. I have said before she loves shopping and is a Coupon Queen.

CALLIE  never heard of using the baby shampoo like that. Of course I have none of that since my 3 were babies. The manager here thought she was so smart removing all the chairs and couches so no one could sit and talk I  saw several ladies on the porch the other day sitting on their rollators and spread the 6 feet apart. Of course the manager was not here that day.

JANE  as long as we see a few words from you every day we and content to know you are OK. I do remember when I had to learn to type with left hand and use the mouse, no fun.

CAROL  don't think we had more than  inches snow all winter this year and I sure missed it. Like you said to me  those who buy every thing is sight are piggy and not just the TP. Most big markets here have an hour in the morning for just for those 60 and over.  My younger son went yesterday at that time and said there was not much on the shelves. he is 67 so qualified for the 60 years.

Last night I heard a trailer truck in Texas was in an accident and every thing in the tralier burned, driver OK but the content in the trailer was  TP.

AMY  for a change I am seeing today greeting. Slept later this morning instead of 3 am.

Have a good day and stay safe.

It is a beautiful sunny morning and that will help the spirits.  David will pick up a grocery order today but there are a lot of items that I wanted that are unavailable.  I'll just have to get a little more creative, I guess.  But, the local news is beginning to talk about "food shortages" and "collapsing supply lines" and that is worrying people.

I ran out of steam yesterday so didn't make Soda Bread, after all, but did make biscuits for dinner last night.  We both really enjoyed them so will do that again as a substitute for bread.  (Still no yeast to be had and flour is in short supply, too.)  I had thought to make bean soup today but no beans so will substitute potatoes, maybe, to go with the left-over biscuits.  Also, I pulled out my old recipe for homemade crackers and I can make some of those, too.  Lots of possibilities.

Amongst all the bad news and anxiety I find myself standing at the window and just marveling at the beautiful blue sky (when the clouds break apart for awhile).  Here on our highly populated and congested East Coast we have so much traffic, so, we always have air pollution.  Now that activity has been so drastically reduced the air is clearing and the blue sky is amazing.  It is what I used to see when I was young and lived in a small town in Kansas and there was all of this beautiful blue sky with fluffy white clouds that I took for granted.  I can't stop looking at it.  I detest this terrible virus that is killing people but I do wish we could have that beautiful blue sky back permanently.

Sounds like you are making the best of things, Jane.  I hope each day is an improvement and less painful.

Take care, All.

Good Morning,

I know we need to keep informed but I've decided The Media (and most everyone else) needs to Change The Subject.

 Life around my house continues almost the same as it does when I don't have anywhere I need to be.

I'm doing the Daily Challenge and the 3 Daily Goals on 4 Solitaire games (on Tablet) and e-books I had on Hold keep appearing in my Loan list almost faster than I can read them.  Birds still need feeding - and, so far, I have plenty of bird seed.
I put three nice-sized chicken breasts in the slow cooker this morning.  Will decide what to do with them  later. 
Had also made up a pound of hamburger into meatballs and baked them.  Can reheat some in BBQ sauce or brown gravy mix or sweet/sour sauce or.....

Was interrupted by two phone calls from Bridge friends who are missing our get-togethers.  Just noticed that it's now after noon and lunch time.

Hope Everyfriend is finding something to Enjoy today.
 :cheers:
