Good morning everyone, 33 now and clear supposed to go to mid 50's and sunshine all day. Well I had been sleeping good for almost a week and this morning here I am at 3:30 am.

JANE  what a wonderful way for your family celebrated your birthday with you. When my daughter first moved to Ca. we talked opn the phone Christmas Eve for at least an hour. When the boys came along and got older they  would talk to me and open the gifts I sent them, fun times. Now we get together on Skype and I talk with all of them. Would love having all my famioy on Skype at the same time but my 2 sons are busy  with guests. I go to Older son's  home for Christmas dinner  and make sure my son takes me home early enough before it gets too noisy with all DIL's family. They are  all nice people but with all the youngsters it gets loud. That is cannot stand anymore.

PHYLLIS  yesterday morning I laid on the couch to watch Perry Mason and fell asleep and woke just before noon. My CNA usually is here at noon but yesterday it was 12:30 she was due. Good thing, gave me time to get dressed.

JENNY  those back rubs Yvette gives me with the hempvana makes it feel good the rest of the day, takes most of the pain away. I do miss them on the week ends. Insurance companies sure take their time to OK MRI's and CT scans.

I did get outside yesterday and it was so nice with sunshine and a light breeze. I walked around a bit then sat on the poch in the sunshine all by myself. There were 2 ladies sitting near the elevator when I came in. That was my exciting day.
Had my coffee and not will go get my breakfast.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone.

Our trip to the city proved interesting. Areas that we could go in to let the dogs out are now roped off, as are all the washrooms one could go in before this virus struck!
No traffic to speak of even on the main street of town very little traffic. We were surprised that where once was Sears store has now been taken down, no debris what so ever.  Another landmark was on the last bit of demolition, that once house the Poppycock and Ovaltine factory.  Lots of changes since we had been to the city. Houses and barns being built too.
We did get what we went for and high tailed  it back home.

Today we have two friend coming one this morning to pick up a moving trolley  and when he comes back he will also have my order from Costco and I will have their order ready for them. Then another friend is coming to look at his trug that he will soon pick up.

Gloria, we are work together here getting items for each other.Or just lending a hand when needed.Happy to read you did get out for a bit yesterday. I think we all are looking forward to the warmer weather.

Jane, I also cooked chicken up for the dogs and it smelled so good that I will make some soup for us with the broth. Have two other packages to cook up but not right now. They have some chicken,rice and carrot to clean up first.

Jenny, Kyle is making crates that one can put in the back of a vehicle to put your items in.Will send you a photo of them ,he even made little ones so I will take mine in the grocery store to pack my groceries in. My easier than in a bag.

Better get a move on, still in jammies and don't want to get caught!!!

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's already 46º here and heading into the mid 60s later today! I can take a day like this a lot more often.  Coupled with the fact that I slept pretty well last night, it makes for a good day!

JENNY, I'm still keeping Michelle in my prayers and I'll add your travelers to my list, too, wishing them safe travels across the states to your area!

Added note to AMY who beat me here:  Sounds like you had a pretty productive day yesterday.  Cheers to KYLE for the shopping crate idea!  I love it!  I favor boxes over bags every day but never thought of crates!  Keep him!  He's a smart guy!

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

And don't forget to share it with your nosy interested friends!

well good morning everyone. the weather Pearson says 50º and sunny. may be in K C MO. but not down here. is calling for 62º and partly sunny today. have a great day today as you al like it.

Lloyd

Amy

I forgot to mention for the past two nights I have been serenaded to sleep!! The frogs are now starting to come out of hibernation and singing at night.  Folk lore has it that they are to be froze in 3 times before the good weather stays.

Jane, yes, Kyle is a keeper!!!

Good morning Lloyd and Nancy!!

Good morning, Gloria.... bright eyed & busy tailed, I see! It has been a few days since I got up as early as you, not sure why. Cats have been sleeping outside when warm enough & I learned not to leave the sliding door by my bed open so they don't pester to go in & out. Miss the fresh air, but they think I'm laying there just to wait on them.

Need to make a trip to Walmart for bread for the fish today. Been so many of them I've been giving them a whole sandwich loaf every night, you'd think they never got anything else to eat! This last week I found racks of it for 49¢ a loaf but only got 4 because I was afraid it would mold before using up. I talk to them & laugh when they run into each other after the same bite.... they kind of float away when I quit talking, afraid not me & don't want to bite on a hook, lots of people fish along the river. Not a very exciting life, huh?

Heard on the radio that Callie is supposed to be in the path of storms today. 'Tis the season, but I dread the damage those storms cause. Cats had their tuna fish breakfast so better get on with my day. Maybe we will start living a normal life soon, you think?

Okay, Amy, Jane & Lloyd showed up, so the early birds are okay!  We don't seem to have many frogs around here anymore, maybe the river too polluted. Soon as people can come around I need to call & have the AC man check it out, the pool man to come open & put the filter back together, get the RV UN-winterized & half a dozen other spring jobs taken care of.

The crates sound interesting, Amy, love to see a photo. Cas used to get on a jag of making different things, bird feeders and houses (golf clubs). Wish I had saved more bird houses for around here but he gave them all away.

Jane, sounds like you are starting to get back to your more normal routine with walking the pup. How much longer is it supposed to take before totally healed? I don't handle all these health issues very well, don't recall my parents complaining about them.

Lloyd, we've been bumping the 80s already so I'm dreading summer. Where I am sitting I can see out the front window & also out the back sliding door. Leaves are blowing pretty good out front & nothing moving out back. We must be in the middle of changing weather & that usually means storms.

I am really hungry so will check in later. Hope everyone has a great day.

Amy

Jane, Jenny and Shirley you have email on the way..

Good morning.  I set the alarm so I would not sleep the day away. I find if I get right up and eat I am ok.  It is when I decide to sit in the recliner before I eat something, I fall back to sleep and then I am sleepy and drowsy all day.

The computer kind of keeps me awake.  Nothing special today.  I was supposed to have a doctor's appt. next Monday, but the doctor's office called and changed it to a phone visit.  So, won't have to worry about having to dress up and go out.

Jean, you asked me if I still do my exercises and I do.  I don't do them all,but I do walk in the halls several times a day. I do plan on keeping that up.  I can tell that it is helping. I can walk up my hallway and back without stopping. Then, I go down to the end, which is the end of the building with a nice big window. I sit there for a few minutes to rest a bit, and then do another walk up and down. 

I need to clean up the kitchen and get dressed.  Then, will get on with my day.  I am thinking of going down to our library, which will take care of my walk for this morning.  It is all the way at the opposite end of the building from where I am, so I am sure I will have to rest along the way.  But, I can sit down in the library and look for some new books to read. 

Nice to see Gloria, Amy, Jane, Lloyd, Shirley, and Jenny, who was here before any of us.  Hope all of you are doing well and stay that way.

Good morning.....just barely.  We have been out working around and it is pretty warm out there today......so pretty.  Still waiting on mowers to come through before we feel safe to plant the grass seed. 

Today is Michele's 30th Chemo.....this has proven to be a long fought battle for her, but she has never swayed from her amazing positive attitude... God bless her🙏 Thank you ALL again so very much for your continued support and prayers💞💞

AMY, I love the boxes your Kyle made and today I see you mentioned the "trug"......I could not for the life of me pull up that name last night when I was posting.  I love the way you shop for some things and friends shop for others.....works great.  I wish we had the same option here....especially if we could share some of the large item packages with others.....Shocking isn't how fast buildings are torn down and how fast some are put up.  When we drive into the City there is always some that we see missing or new going up.

SHIRLEY, we are having a real hard time buying chicken here....yesterday Bob picked up some leg and thigh pieces at Sam's and they were a big disappointment.....the way they are cut it has like a piece of the back bone in it or some bone....not the thigh bone I expected.  Gurrrrr. Costco normally has these nice packages of legs, thighs, breast.....there are NONE of them in the stores now ever!  He said the meat counter in Costco was nearly empty.  I am thinking we are going to have a lot more shortages in the near future now with so many of the meant packing plants shut down from Covid......it is frightening. 

GLORIA, happy for you that the back rub and the hemp cream works so well. 

JANE, thank you for the added prayers for our traveling family...worries me that Megan will be driving the van alone with a Jonah in the back seat.....we feel he is not going to be a happy camper being contained for so long.....pray she can keep her eyes on the road.....🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

CALLIE, I hope you stay safe from the bad storms headed your way.

Enjoy the rest of your day, EVERYFRIEND❣️

Hello Everyfriend!  We've had two walks all the way around the circle and one about half way.  We'll have another one after supper.  It's been a beautiful day!  Frankie stopped by on he way to work and left me a little pot of flowers blooming now and suitable for planting in the garden.

SHIRLEY, I don't know how long the healing process is for this kind of break but I have to get xrays on the 7th and I have a tele appt with the Orthopedist on the 8th.  Maybe he'll have something to say about that.

I've taken to weeding a small patch of the garden that adjoins the driveway when we get back from our walks.  It's not easy standing on the leash and pulling weeds with only one hand but it's starting to show what I've been doing.  And I makes me feel good to be doing it!

Cathy will be along soon so I think I'll try to get Mickie fed so we can all walk together while she's here.  I hope the rest of your day is good.  You all deserve the best!

They say it's ok to talk to yourself as long as you don't also answer so I'm not commenting on anything I said above.  I'm just going to wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

well I am up but not at it. haven't slept a wink, but finely came in here so Nancy could get a little rest. tossing and turning never do either of us any good. I am going to the couch see if the t v will do the trick. at least until  the sun comes up, then I can go to the shop and put the new engine on the lawnmower.  the grass is getting tall enough to mow for hay. we don't have but two cows left and I think we will sell them.  either do that or buy some more.
dont think will do that unless we get things fixed on the ownership of the farm and tony and Nicole move in with us. Have a great day.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's going to be a busy morning!  I have an appointment with the Chiropractor/Kinesiologist this afternoon and Cathy is going to be here while I get a shower.  Mickie has been out and we're waiting for the boinger and I'm hoping we can squeeze in breakfast and a short walk before Cathy gets here.

I'll try to visit later after I'm ready for the appt and waiting for Cathy to come back and pick me up.  In the meantime....

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

And scoot back in here to share it with all of us!  We need the company!

Good morning everyone..

We have liquid sunshine and I think it will stay all day..Not sure what is happening now other than I need to deliver some masks. Thankfully there has been no call for cancer quilts in this time. I would like to think that there are no new cases but that would  be wishful  thinking.

Phyllis, hope all is well there.

Jane,little steps in using your arm, don't over do it.

Better get going and see what might be on the agenda that I am not aware of yet.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Wet here, too.  Storms overnight but I slept through them.  I don't think we had any limbs down in our yard but until it gets lighter out there I won't be able to tell.

I should scratch around the nest a little today and at least scare the spiders but if I have to turn the light on to just see the dust I don't get the point of making the effort.  It may....or may not....happen.

Take care, All.

Love your attitude, Phyllis.... "may or may not happen"........  my opinion exactly! Today the mowers are going to be here at 8:00 am so must take care of cats & me early and get the gates unlocked. Have a Thuper Thursday!

JaneS

Rain here, too...steady and heavy.  No wind to blow it around or make it colder but it sure feels cold and damp out there. 

I'm ready for Cathy to pick me up.  I'm sure she's not looking forward to the drive in the rain.  But it's better than the last time we went.  It snowed that time!

Better see to last minute.  I hate to hold her up when she's doing me a favor!  Have a good rest of the day.  Dust or don't dust.  However you feel!

This A.M. I started a "big chore".  Removing, washing, drying and replacing the linens on my King Size bed.  If I had a Smart Watch, I'm sure it would register
10,000 steps, walking around and around that bed. Wrestling with the mattress cover is a job in itself.  The washing was for the flannel sheets, I think our Winter is over for now, it's about 80 degrees here now, and we expect 90's for this weekend, so I'm just putting the cotton sheets on.

JaneS

Well, we didn't make it to the Chiropractor today!  It was still pouring when Cathy picked me up at 1 and all the way we travelled, there were ditches and fields lying full of water.  We crossed over one creek that was running fast and high.  We were about two thirds of the way there when we met up with two yellow trucks with their lights blinking behind a large sign that said "Road Closed Ahead".  They were directing traffic on to a a side road that we had no idea where it went. So we turned around to back track to find a road we knew and I called Debra's office to tell them what happened and that if we continued, we would be at least a half hour late.  We decided to reschedule.  Even if we had gone around by the other road, I know it crosses some creeks and runs close beside some others.  So it was probably a good decision.

I'm really tired and ready to sleep but I'm going to stay up at least another hour so I can sleep all night.  It's still raining but supposed to stop around midnight. 

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

well good night and sweet dreams everyone. well i worked in the shop today good tempter in the shade of the shop a genital breeze blowing through. hope to see you all tomorrow.

Lloyd

Shirley

Wow, Jane, those kind of roads spook me.... do not like any kind of flooding when can't tell how high it is on the road. We are so flat here, even in the city, streets flood everywhere. Hard to build storm drains big enough to drain off a downpour. Glad you got back safe but sorry you had to miss your appointment.

Tome, I have a king size bed in the RV & can barely walk around it when slide is out, really is a chore to change sheets, my arms are never long enough. I've learned in the 5 years I've had it that the bed doesn't need changing nearly as often as I once thought!!! I would have settled for a full size & more walking space, but that's how it came & my sons & I were heading to the mountains 2 days after picking it up from the dealer. My sons sleep in one son's camper but I was glad they were in the site next to me to show me how all the gadgets worked! Too bad the cats hate the ride, I'd go more often, although right now I guess all campgrounds are closed. Anyway, I can sympathize with having to change sheets on a king!

Lloyd, don't even think about buying any more cows. You don't need anything else to tie you down and everyone else is busy with their own lives. Taking care of yourselves is a big enough job! Stay safe & stay healthy!

Had calls from my kids & time I get to bed. Everyone is holding their breath about how soon they can get back to "normal". For tonight, I don't want to think about the virus anymore! Sweet dreams & God Bless..Shirley
