Good morning every one.Will be afternoon when I finish. Called the dentist yesterday and will see her tomorrow afternoon. All of a sudded where she pulled the 2 teeth out is hurting bad when I try  to talk. Either a piece of bone or infection. Don't know. Cannot talk without pressing on the area on my face where it hurts inside. Such fun NOT.

PHYLLIS  we are almost as low on rain as you are over for 2020.

JANE  prayers for Mavis. I think it will be awhile before my SIL is back  to normal.

SHIRLEY  Mare's husbamd was Frank and their grand daughter got a scolorship for a college here in RI to be on their running team.

JANE my SIL did not know he had pneumonia until a nurse called after he was home. In that hospital they told him nothing. That is one reason his lungs are not working like they should yet. He has a doctor appointment tomorrow with his doctor and he will find out more then.

AMY  at least the tomatoes on the vine smell a bit like a tomatoe even if the taste in not quite there. Like you husband I NEED my chocolate to survive.

JANE  not lazy, anyone over 70 deserves to take life easy, we are retired ad the days of having to work are over. Remember JOAN's book and all the demerits you have now?

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning from an Interior that's still trying to make up its mind, back and forth, above then below zero again. This is not our old normal January, but it is consistent with what's happened before in this odd winter.

Jane, you've made me duck my head with my love of couch surfing. In any case, you're an example for me to get off my duff.  :(

I'm hoping for Mavis, too, and also hope it will be better soon or at least easier for her.

Amy, while I tend more to savory than sweet, no longer having chocolate is going to be hard for me. One nice surprise is finding how wonderful food tastes naturally without all the goop we habitually add. A simple vegetable salad or a plain slice of thick dark homemade bread has a deliciousness I've forgotten!

I hope Gloria that you can get in ASAP to your dentist to relieve your pain!

Gloria, thinking about Mare's granddaughter, reminded me of all the family members we'd grown used to hearing about, and I missed that. I did correspond for a long while with Martha, Papa John's daughter, but it eventually slowed down and stopped.

Amy

Patricia, just a thought...if they took away all the preservatives, additives ,would there be any natural food left??

Funny, Amy, but a good point! You wouldn't be able to hold it longer in warehouses or to ship longer distances. You wouldn't be able to keep it as long before using it, and eating seasonal would be back. Farmers would have healthy lives, and bank accounts and the earth would thank us, and climate change would be vastly slowed.

However, that's unrealistic with humans demanding their "personal freedoms." Look at Covid and how they don't want to wear masks or take any precautions.

Shirley

Oh, Gloria, my sincere sympathy for the pain in your head.... to me that is a bad as it can get because you can't (or at least I never could) convince myself that it will be okay. I can grit my teeth & control pain anywhere else but not my head. Do hope you can get it taken care of fast! I do keep a little "dixie cup" of equal parts salt & baking soda in my bathroom cabinet along side my toothpaste & brush.... wet my finger under the faucet & dip into the salt & soda & pat it on a sore.... wait a few seconds & rinse my mouth. Suggestion came from a dentist back in the old days. If I get a sore on the side of my cheek I go for a few bites of cold saurekraut.... grew up with that remedy & both work for different types of sores in the mouth. Good luck....

I opened up the RV & put the awning out ... awning always gets water in but looks like the rest of the unit is okay.  First snow to sit on top & melt since the new roof so a sigh of relief. I am SO ready to run away from home! Spring is around the corner (and if you believe that, I've got a bridge to sell).....  ;)   For true, not but a couple months & it is here & I'll be griping about the heat.

hello everyone. I got my laptop back up and running. I will have to go back and read and try catch up. wish you all the rest of the day the best.

I'm off to the haystack to look up some zzzzs.  I did get the Christmas stuff all put away and my dining room table back to normal.  Also did a little cooking.  I guess I don't really know how to "goof off". 

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

well I checked in and looks like my did not work, so I deleted it.

Amy

Good morning...

Tis a day catching up on work in here before the dust bunnies gang up on me!!

Gloria, my excuse on eating chocolate was that it comes from a bean......beans are a vegetable and vegetables are good for you so therefore chocolate[ is good for you.  That is my story and I am sticking to it :thumbup:

Jane ,hope each day brings Mavis closer to feeling much better.

Better skedaddle.

Enjoy your day and stay safe!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  And a special "Good Morning AMY" since you are here already.  I was in earlier and put the coffee and tea on and left some goodies in the hidey hole.  Enjoy them.  They are the last of the Christmas cookies (including about a dozen Moose Farts, some sand tarts and a few chocolate crinkles)

I think I'm going to do some laundry today.  I don't have to tend it while it's going and I can sit around and do nothing while it does itself.  Sounds like a winner to me!

I hope you all have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Good Morning everyone. well I haven't been up long but did have a pretty good night's sleep but between naps and movies' had a good night. sure is good to have my Laptop back up and running. and the teck. did not charge me, he is a good friend and i have in the past done favors for him ,and he has returned some like it should be. Have a good day I ask that you all keep us in your prayers for court go in our favors about a good settlement in court. they keep putting of depiction's and the bank he has used is trying to get it set aside.

Lloyd

Shirley

Checking in, Fitbit tells me I had 6 hours and 59 minutes sleep (a record for me) so I have no excuse to nap today. Maybe after effects of COVID finally wearing off. Hoping for a happier year ahead.

Cats all fed, girls sleeping and Tom wanted to check his territory outside. Weather kind of "iffy" today, maybe rain, maybe a little snow this morning, we need moisture yet. Back when we had an acre of land I would start tomato plants from seed this first week of the year, transplant them by St.Patrick's Day (March 17) to the garden Cas had plowed and put plastic milk gallons over them for those late frosts. I would save the lids & put on for real cold nights. We always had very early tomatoes because I planted the Early Girls & Big Boys and those Early Girls really did ripen a month before the others. Dad & Mom took great pleasure and pride in the garden, a reason to smile. :thumbup:

Lloyd, hope all goes well and the judge understands and is fair.

Gloria

Good morning everyone. of all mornings to wake late. I have a dentist appointment at 2 this afternoon. My son will take me and Yvette will be here at 11 this morning, Gives her time to do the laundry. I hope she does not have to cut into the gum unless she freezes if really good. No time to chat and do need a cup of coffee and something in the tummy.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Just a quickie....I've been a little concerned about Joy not being around so I called her this morning.  She said she's been to the dr. and is being treated for anxiety.  The dr. told her the pills would take about a week to take effect and it's been only a few days.  She said she is very tired, has no appetite but forces herself to eat.  She sounded like she appreciated the phone call so I'm glad I thought of it.  I also told her that if she doesn't check in for a week, I'll be calling her again.  She liked that!  I also told her I was going to report to all of you and she said "Hello and I miss them all!" 

Now I have laundry to put in the dryer!  Hope all's well with all of you!

patricia19

Thank you Jane. I've been thinking of Joy a lot lately and wondered how she was. Anxiety can rob us of so much and we may not even realize why. I'm glad she's getting help and I look forward to seeing her back when she's able.


CallieOK

Good Morning,

Jane, thank you for the report on Joy.  Anxiety is a serious thing and I hope the meds help her.
Just went over to Photos (thanks, Bubble) and saw the pic of your precious great-grands.  Are these the ones in Oklahoma?  They're so cute!  Emma's expression looks like Ellen's used to when she was that age and was asked to "smile for the camera".  Mikey looks as if he's saying, "There she goes again - showing off!"   :smitten: 

Shirley,  you need an excuse to have a nap???  :o  Okay - how about "it's cold, raw and drizzly in central Oklahoma"? (That's my excuse for being a "recliner radish" and I'm sticking to it.  ;D)


Amy

Jane, thank you for the goodies in the hidy hole. Plus the report on Joy......nice to know she is ok. Love your  great grand babies so sweet to see.

Jane, I'm still blinking away tears from laughing at the "kids" expressions. Such a fun time of life, raising them and watching the personalities develop. Priceless memories and appreciate you (and Bubble) bringing this to us today.

Callie, if we ever get Jane to OK I will depend on you setting up a gathering (maybe she can even bring those kids?) I'll be there (anywhere) and we'll have a ball! I'm trying very hard this week to make up for the time lost with COVID.... Brain still not functioning at 100% but never did give it a chance to get too serious about daily life!

Joy, sorry you've been on a downer... think about it, wouldn't you have loved a few days of peace & quiet back when we were raising those kids?  Seriously, I keep telling my kids that life gets better all the time.... This is the worst stretch I think we've been through since those days of WWII.... I miss hugs and getting out to smile at people. I'm thinking about painting a smile on my mask or one sticking my tongue out (picture it).. just to hear someone snicker. Glad Jane had your phone number so we can give you a pep talk.

I've got to hike down to the river bed today to see what damage the beavers have done. Looking from the house it seems some of my tallest trees are missing.  :knuppel2: Clouding up so better get my hair trimmed & washed before the rain moves in.  I'll be back..............

For those inclined, there are ten questions left on my trivia quiz and everyone is now entitled, except Rutumi who posted two, to three new guesses. Let's see who likes to keep guessing! And who doesn't?

JaneS

thanks for all the nice comments about my kiddies.  You've all come very close to their personalities.  Emma is already a handful and I'm betting Mikey will be, too  In Emma's defense, she takes after her mother at that age and looks exactly like her so "what goes around, comes around".  And from what I know of Ali's husband, if Mikey takes after him, they'll have two the same.

SHIRLEY and CALLIE, you are making me want to come to OK even more that to see my family!  I'd love to get together with you!  But I'm pretty sure my traveling days are over.  I'm craving a visit but.....

Unnecessary to mention it Jane, I do that gladly for anyone needing the help. It's a pleasure.

Good morning..

Another great day in the making ,no snow called for and we should see some sun!

Taking hubby  in for blood work this morning then see if he wants to go for xray on his ribs. He took a face plant the other day and his chest is sore. I know they can't do anything for broken or cracked ribs just let them heal.

Managed to get some sewing done yesterday and will try to get more done today.

Jane, any word on Mavis?

Jenny, good to "see" you. Hope all is well in your area. How is Michele doing?

Lloyd, I do hope everything goes your way in the court case..prayers that it does.

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

good morning everyone. it is 31ยบ and cloddy, supposed to be in the lower 30's through the next week or so here. AMY thanks. Have a good day.

Lloyd

JaneS

Good night for last night!  And good morning for this morning.  I fell asleep watching TV last night and when I woke up I was a bit groggy so I didn't come in the computer room.  I hope someone took care of the lights and turned off the coffee pot!  Oh yes, it looks like JENNY might have taken care of that.  I hope Bubble didn't stumble when she came by!

Today is another "catch up" day.  I have a load of laundry in the dryer to put away and another ready to go in the washer.  I have some stuff that needs to be cooked and a couple of things ready for the freezer.  Mickie will be ready for a walk as soon as I finish my breakfast and I need to start the car to make sure it goes.  Then I have the recycling stuff to load.  I guess I have plenty to keep me busy for a couple more hours or so.  I didn't mention a nap.  That's becoming a regular!

JENNY, I hope all that's keeping you from us isn't bad.  Don't forget to take care of YOU!

AMY, no broken bones please!  I hope Kyle's just a little sore and it keeps getting better.

Mavis is off oxygen and that's a good sign.  Her son promised to keep me informed.  If I don't hear from him today, I'll call him this evening.  I guess the prayers are working!

Now, I have to go get dressed so I can take Mickie for a walk.  Cooper isn't coming today.  Frankie was running late so her neighbor will look after him.  We always miss him when he doesn't come. 

I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!
