It is sunny right now but rain is supposed to come back this evening.  Temp will be in the mid-70's.  That's all right with me.

Sorry a sinus infection is complicating things for you, Shirley.  Hope it clears up soon.  My allergies are kicking in pretty much, too, but so far no infection.....fingers crossed.  Yep, Amy and I both have sons named David and I'm sure her David is a good guy, too, just like mine is.

Grocery pick-up today and a little "nest scratching" and that is all I have planned.  I have set out the lentils and the kielbasa so maybe today I'll finally get to that soup.....maybe.

Glad to hear that you got "shot", Callie.   :2funny:   You deserved a stop at Braums.  Wish we had one of those here.

Take care, All.

Good afternoon EVERYFRIEND 💐

We arrived safely at my Dads last evening, however they have not had internet here for over a week now, so I could not get online.  Bob went and bought a new router and finally got them up and running a few minutes ago.  Yippee!

My Dad was so happy to see us......and we were so happy to see him.  He is very confused where we have been and why.  We have told him many times about Mark moving but he just can't comprehend it.  He is so thin and has slept a lot off and on today.  He will chat for a bit them I look up and he is sleeping 😴😩

Mark is having issues with the moving company.  They were coming last Wednesday, then two different times yesterday.....then first stop this morning......STILL NOT THERE.  They are getting concerned🧐🧐
Mark just called.....they are beside themselves.....movers now say tomorrow.....this is getting very concerning.....

Diane and her daughter got their Covid Vaccine this morning, but my Dad does not want to go out to get one.  We are trying to find someone that might come here to the house to no avail 😩😤  We are not sure if that can ever happen.  He can hardly move around with his walker and going any distance is not possible.

CALLIE, you are the first person I know that received the Johnson Vaccine.  YEA, only one shot! 

SHIRLEY, I am sad you are having some issues with your eye.  I hope the new drops will be the end of the problems.

DIL Michele got her first shot yesterday but had to dive to a hospital over 2 hours away! 

IAMY, I did put a new picture of my Jonah Boy on here. I have a couple of videos that I would love to share....I have been thinking about Kyles burnt hand.....it sounds pretty serious and .I hope he can avoid a infection.

Take care ......more later!

Jenny, was admiring that darling little boy... he is SO cute & bet has a personality to match. One visit with my father he slept off & on all the time so I complained to my sister (who was in charge of taking them to the doctors). They took him off his BP med and he was fine, even thru the 3 months Mom was in the hospital dying. We would ask a nurse to check his BP and it was always just fine without those BP pills. Know not everyone's problem but would it hurt to cut pills in half to see if it made a difference?  In the few days I've been taking my BP is so far down I cut the pill in half tonight because I'm dragging, breathing like I am asleep. BUT, got to keep it down for the other surgery next Monday. Do hope you can help him while there.

Callie, my daughter just got back from getting the single shot. HER daughter discovered how to get into the right system & also have Andy set for the shot on Sunday. Daughter even had a call this afternoon asking if she could come early & was sorry she didn't take me in (I don't dare), they had doses that would have to be tossed if not used by a certain time. Kansas seems to be on top of this. Daughter had the ONE shot. Her husband is so relieved she got it since she is  taking me to the clinics. They didn't have a problem that she lives in St.Louis...

The new eye med turned out to not work, eyes not nearly as clear as yesterday & since I am on an antibiotic that does work, we didn't do the drop tonight. Had Julie-Ellen look up side effects & sure enough... I had 'em all. I have a new med to start on Sunday so hopefully it will be okay for the days to get me thru... At least the doctor now believes this isn't all in my head! :-\
I did do the driving today & passed the test, but Julie-Ellen was watching close to make sure I saw every car, light & corner.  :2funny:

I boiled the cats a chicken thigh tonight, just salt & clove of garlic. Tom & Callie weren't excited. Tom ate a few bites & drank the broth but Callie wouldn't touch it, Tiger ate her dish full. It has rained off & on last night & today, raining again so cats will stay inside tonight. I bought 2 packages of thighs because that's what everyone likes better than breasts... wanted to see if the cats would eat since they are so picky about food. They don't like anything more than 2 days in a row so a constant worry. They always have the dry Indoor Delight Friskies in bowls all over the house, so do not go hungry. Right now Callie is sitting in the toy box, she does that to make me feel sorry for her (I think). Can't be comfy with those lumps under her! Nice clean bed right next to the toy box.

Looking back over the posts & again thought Jonah looks just like you.... if 20 photos in a pile I could pick his to be related to you, for sure.

Eyes are starting to give out, sweet dreams to all. God Bless and keep you safe. Kyle, do hope the hand is better by now. Stay out of trouble, you, too... Lloyd!   Shirley

JaneS

Is Jonah's pic over in photos?  I didn't see any mention of it.  I'll go check when I'm finished here.

I got my second shot this afternoon and had no reaction so far.  It isn't even a tiny bit sore around the shot spot.  Cathy has texted me 4 times to ask if I'm OK.  She stuck around for about an hour after we came back and then made me promise to call her if any reactions started. 

Now I'm off to the haystack!  Cooper won't be arriving until around 8:30 tomorrow so if Mickie doesn't have an urgent call, we can sleep in a bit.  The weather has been so warm that I think tomorrow will be bed changing day so I can take one blanket off and put it away for the summer. 

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

Good morning..

Chilly out ,temp is 6° at the moment at least the wind has died down.
Work about home today ,need to bake bread also.

Jenny , Jonah sure is a cutie and heart stealer!!.

Jane, Jonah is Jenny's new avatar. Hope your arm is good today.

Phyllis, yes he is a good guy also.

No Gloria ?? Hope we hear from her today, also Joy.

Lloyd, you heard Shirley, stay out of trouble :))

I made the lentil soup and it was really good.  I was surprised that the bright red lentils (uncooked) turned a light yellow when cooked.  I've used lentils a lot but this was the first time I've used the red ones.  It seemed to me they had a slightly sweeter taste but were really good.  I'm glad we liked it because I made a BIG pot.

Cloudy today and cooler.  I enjoyed the sunny days while we had them but we do need rain from time to time.  We don't want them to start putting up the fire watches quite yet.

Take care, All.

Good Morning,

No reaction to vaccination yet.  Not sure I'd be able to tell the difference between that and the usual "squeaks and creaks", though. ;)

Jenny, Carson met someone from a construction company in Bentonville AR at a recent Job Fair on campus.  He went over yesterday for an interview and, while he was driving back, he got an e-mail offering him a job after graduation.
 I told him about your son and he wondered if he could get free golf lessons. ;D
He really liked the Bville company but has also had contact with a company in Tulsa so may wait a bit to see if they follow up with a live interview. 

Edit: just realized your son is going to Springdale not Bentonville. ,That would be close enough for Carson to drive over for golf.😉

Learned this morning on Facebook that Dr. Emily is now "in a relationship"!!  I knew she'd been seeing someone for a while but didn't realize it was getting to this point.  (Not sure I want to know what "in a relationship" means these days!!!)

Going to be a wet weekend so am glad three e-books I'd had on Hold have come in. Laundry to do first.

Hope Everyone has an Enjoyable Day.

Amy

Laundry blowing on the line, should be dry now. Bread and cinnamon buns in the oven and a pot of baby lima beans in the instant pot.

Although the temp has come up it is still a  chilly 26° I heard ,then saw our first red winged blackbird!!!

Jane, did you go back to bed???

Callie, young love is special..remember when???

Better go check the bread..

Good morning from an Interior at minus 29°. At least the snow has temporarily stopped with the cooler temperatures. Spring here is ugly as it is a thirty-day period of runoff, browns, and grays and then that elusive sign of green in the trees before an hour where the whole earth or at least our portion of it simultaneous greens. Usually, the snow is gone by Easter, but this record-smashing winter snowfall isn't melting anytime soon.

My good news is after thirty days of pain, solitude, and bed rest, I can see an end to this. Instead of the pain radiating through my entire left side and guzzling Tylenol, It only hurts if I overdo it in the mornings and I'm thinking of going out sometime next week on my own to do a few neglected errands. No walking or anything too elaborate, taxis both ways but at least it's an end to a very long tunnel!

Amy

Patricia, that is good news!! Be very careful ,there could be ice about like here. Our snow has gone down a lot but the ice is about. Minus 29 ° is rather refreshing :) We are to get rain here on Thur so it be said and I can just imagine all the ice!

We turn our clocks ahead tonight...

Amy, thanks for reminding me as I'd forgotten about the time change. Next week, I'll be cautious, using taxis to take me door to door and only one mall where I'll utilize the riding carts.

Shirley

Yikes! I totally forgot about clock changing. Most will do it on their own but at least half a dozen have to be pushed into changing. Think that is the most dreaded job of the year.

Rain off & on night & day, kinda chilly. Ran out to take trash to dumpster & put seed in the feeder I watch while standing at the sink. Eye still more blurry than the day after surgery so we skipped the eye drops & will start a new type tomorrow for the Monday surgery. I did expect all these problems but does not make them any less irritating.

Julie-Ellen is off for a walk/run before the next rain. She was feeling really bad last night, like she had the flu (from the shot) and still feeling bad this morning. After a nap this am along with a Motrin she is back to her old self. Oops.. there she is, I heard the garage door open. Hope all have a great day.

Good MorningI mean Evening, I think!

this has been a topsy-turvy, upside-down day so far!  Cathy stopped by for my shopping list and cards and then back to drop off the "stuff".  As she came in the door my cell phone was ringing and it was Christy, my Maryland daughter, calling to check up on me following my shot.  We had a nice long face-time chat and then she hung up because they were getting where they'd been heading.  Then she called back to to share face-time pictures of the sheep with lambs that a guy has at the farm that her husband's father left them.  They use part of it and rent the rest out.  The house has been turned into apartments.  I think they are both Farmers at heart!

After that, Mickie and I went for another walk just because the day was so nice and then it was getting on towards lunch time.

As for the rest of the day, it just went by!

It sounds like you've all been busy, too!  AMY, when I finish here, I'm looking in the Hidey Hole for a Cinnamon Bun.

And I sure hope PHYLLIS left me a bowl of Lentil Soup.  I've never had that and I'd love to try it!

I'm missing JOY and GLORIA, too!

SHIRLEY, I think you are truly enjoying haveing Julie-Ellen with you!  I wish it were under other circumstances but we have to take what we can get these days.

I took a good look at the picture of JONAH.  He's a real cutie, JENNY!

Now it's time to think about feeding Mickie again and also putting something in my tummy.  I hope everyone's day goes well.

Almost 5 hours since I was here and no one's been around since that.  I guess thats OK since I just came by to tell you that I'm about to hit the haystack and to wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning..

The wind is back up and temp is sitting at 27° at the moment. A day of rest here, just have to make a trip to the dump and that is it! Last time I didn't see the eagles but maybe this time I will.

Jane, help yourself to the cinnamon buns and there is also cornmeal muffins in the hidy hole as well.

Shirley hope your eye is much better today..

Lloyd, how are you this morning?

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

I forgot to set the clocks and apparently so did David.  But, the body woke up when it was ready to anyway.  Who needs clocks?!

Sunny this morning and we didn't get the rain that we were told we would.  No plans for the day so will just take it easy.  I made a Rustic Apple Tart yesterday and it was good.  Still some left and we will have it for today's dessert.

Take care, All.

Good Morning!  From yesterday at 5:19 p.m until this morning at 7:02 a.m. I was the only one around this place.  I scrubbed the counters, tables and floors.  Washed the windows inside and out. I brushed off all the chairs and cleaned the fingerprints off the wall switches.  I even got up on a chair and washed off all the light fixtures.  I empetied out the old coffee and tea and made fresh and checked out the Hidey Hole for goodies.  I toll out all the rugs and shook them good and still no one came in.  You must have all been having a really GOOD or a really BAD day yesterday.  I felt very lonely! 

Now I have to go take Mickie for a walk.  It's another beautiful "beginning of Spring" day here and we have to go out and take it in.  It's been a long time.  Still no reaction from the shot.  My arm isn't even a little bit sore.  I recommend Pfizer given by Evangelical Hospital staff. 

Have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Still having eye issues, no surgery tomorrow, not using the drops required the day before. Been up & down with the drops & repaired eye still worse than the day after surgery. This does not surprise me & why I dreaded so much... can't fake a red eye & tears running down the cheek in only one eye. I did take an aspirin this morning AFTER my daughter saw it, but I'm a believer pain is our way of knowing what & why is wrong, then can cover it up until the remedy is available. No way would I put this other eye in jeopardy until first one cleared up.

Julie-Ellen got her Covid shot & was really hit hard. Her Fitbit showed the reaction her body took for about 24 hours. Heart rate spiked until this morning. Because she has Crohn's she has to be careful. Fitbit showed big change in sleep pattern so not something imagined.

Did I tell you I picked my first daffodil? It sits on the window sill by the sink so I see it all day as I look out the window. Spring has sprung, for sure.

Amy, do your eagles stay year around? We have some that migrate but some all year. The egrets & herons are not back yet, I hope/plan to spend more time out watching the birds when these eyes are working better. We had another shower, maybe several overnight, so pool is full. We also had a 3.5 earthquake that centered near us, quite a double jolt, we were sitting here at the table & felt it (no damage).

Have I missed visits from Gloria?  Can't recall her mentioning if Yvette is back.

So many questions I'm thinking to ask each of you but eyes are not willing to look at this screen any longer. We did dim it down. Jane, I'll try to do better about shouting out when I come in, instead of just reading & thinking comments!  :-[

I was here at 5:15 this morning, but nothing going on and I can't tell from the times messages are supposedly posted what the actual time is.  The only time I recognize is my own time zone, which is now DST in the Central time zone.

The above post says 5:58 PM and it is actually 12:58 PM (noonish) here.

Good Afternoon,

Sun is shining and this is Day 3 of no side effects from vaccination.  I think we can put that subject to rest.  :)

Well, maybe OMT:  Jane, you mentioned a few posts back that someone came out to give me my shot.  Actually, the entire front row of the parking lot was reserved for those who were allowed to wait in their cars.  Two Health Dept. vans were parked nearby with supplies and at least 10 health care workers and several volunteers worked the line of cars very efficiently.

BTW,  thanks for the sparkling clean Shoppe. I was :sleepy: when you were searching for someone to talk to.   

Shirley,  I'm so sorry you had to "prove" the effect antibiotics have on you to the doctors.  Do you think maybe being outside was a trigger for the redness and the runny eye? 

My daffodils are all in bloom except for the one clump that got nipped by the recent freezing temperatures.  Some of them fell over during the rain yesterday and I think I'll cut them and bring them in the house.
I can do this with daffodils and pansies but hyacinths make me sneeze. 

Tome, Wonder if there's a way to set your Profile preferences to show the local time?

I watched church services on t.v., read the paper, unloaded/reloaded the dishwasher and finally managed to pry the cover off the t.v. remote so I could change the batteries.

And that's what's going on in my corner of the world.
Hope Everyfriend is having an enjoyable day.

 

JaneS

CALLIE, you must sleep a lot.  I was here 4 times between 5 pm yesterday and 7am this morning and you said you were napping when I was here.  I think I sleep a lot!  Sometimes I wish I could sleep 14 hours in a row but about 4 hours is my limit.  Sometimes I can go back to sleep and sometimes I can't.  P.S.  I don't really think you slept 15 hours!

Fact is, I am in & out of here many times but before I can resize the text someone or a furbaby needs something & I don't get a post posted.  :-[   

I am really concerned about Gloria, have I missed her posting?  I have to take glasses OFF to read so limited to how much light they will tolerate before watering down the face/computer.

Callie, the Dr reminded me that "if pollen allergies were the problem, both eyes would be watering".

Did the movers ever get around to pick up Jenny's kids furniture? How's Kyle's hand?  Could do with care packages of all the good foods talked about  :P .........seriously, between what we cook up here & pick up at the drive thrus, we aren't going to lose any weight!

Jane,  ;D  ;D  Well, no, I wasn't asleep from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 this morning.  More like 1:00a.m. - 8:00 a.m.   Just not on line much after the 10:00 news - too involved in reading e-books.

Shirley,  I realize allergies would affect both eyes.  Just wondered if the eye that was operated on might have gotten irritated by something in the air.

I've spent most of the afternoon reading on the patio.   Was concentrating on e-book when I heard "crow talk". One of the three crows that hang around in the summertime (nicknamed Heckle, Jeckle and Clyde) was perched in a cottonwood tree and the other two were drifting around on wind currents. Eventually, they all three perched in trees and, after "discussing that weird creature in 'their' space", came down to the yard for a bit.
Guess the summer entertainment season has begun.  Soon be time to put out the hummingbird feeder.
