A Saturday Afternoon HELLO to all.  I enjoyed watching the simplistic but beautiful funeral from the UK.

 I managed  to pull my good shoulder so could not type at all yesterday....still tender today but moving somewhat better.

 Thank you, ALL for asking about Michele.

Unfortunately Michele took a turn for the worse yesterday. Dave knew she was very confused on the phone when she called him very early yesterday morning.  After he arrived he could tell it was much more serious than just being anesthesia related.  He asked them to do something, I can't remember the official nam, and they discovered a brain bleed.  Many tests and discussions but realize it is a weekend and all they thought they ere going to do, the now have told them not until Monday.  Mind you she has not had food since Thursday dinner.  She has now ordered something.  A CT scan during the night showed the bleed has stopped for now......they reversed her Eloquist (blood thinner) with a 21K dollar shot.....feeling it caused the bleed.   We are of course extremely concerned about this, but nothing more we can do other than continue to pray🙏🙏🙏

JANE, I am smiling after reading you got to shop at the Amish Store.  I think many of us did not realize how much this past year has taken out of us.  Catch those zzzz's when ever you can....they are good for you.

My arm has had it so I must say bye for now.

Jenny

Amy

Jenny, my goodness what more will Michele be put through? She is so strong to endure all this. Prayers being said  for her and you ..go easy on that shoulder!

Oh, Jenny, I am so sad for Michele and Dave, he is suffering with her every step and I'm sure it is draining him because he knows what each set back means. Prayers for them and all that are going through this with her (especially their kids). Sorry you messed up your GOOD shoulder. Got to treat it will special care having to do the job of both for now. Take care and my thoughts will be with you & your family when I kneel in church tomorrow morning.

I am going to bed early tonight, did not get one minute of DEEP sleep last night (think I already told you that?) Not sure if I should make Tom & Callie stay inside tonight, she would rather but Tom would rather stay out. She hates cold more than he does, & he'd rather spend the day inside sleeping so that's the choices they make.

Amy, good idea putting trash bag over a box & brick on top. Hopefully I will get it done before the freeze Tuesday night!

Sweet dreams to all. Love ya, Shirley

Jenny...
...i am just lost for words, re, your Michele...if it is not one thing, it is another...just glad the brain bleed was found sooner rather than later, before it caused any more damage to her...Just hope and pray they are on-top of what actually caused it, the blood thinners....

Good morning...

A new up date on the computer has me pondering . now to get used to a different format.....again :knuppel2: Do they not know if'n it ain't broke, don't fix it???

A day of rest here....just meeting with friends to exchange items in town and that is it.

We have a resident robin that loves to start around 5:30 am to welcome the morning bless his heart. Then one loon called to another across the lakes  and I don't know what what said but they met up and were both calling as they flew over the house. Can't sleep through that!

We had two ladies stop and look at the trugs yesterday and one ordered one and the other lady is thinking about. Just hope we can get the supplies to make it.


Enjoy your day and stay safe..

Just stopping by to say "Good Morning Everyfriend".  May you all have a better day than yesterday.

JENNY, my prayers are still with Michele and her whole family...especially the children.  This must be a very difficult time for them and they must be very special kids to be bearing all this in their young lives.  Michele is lucky to have the family she does and I'm sure that's a big part of her will to carry on.

I hope your shoulder is mending.  Please take special care not to put extra pressure on other parts of your body.  I know how tempting it is to do that.

Everyone...you are all in my prayers daily!

AMY, around here we have the pigeons cooing in their nests constantly.  You can hear them best in the morning and the evening and it's a very soothing sound.  The geese have left our pond and moved on north or wherever it is they spend their summers.  I love to observe their passing.  I think there is also an eagle's nest nearby.  I've seen one sitting on top of the telephone pole several times a day every summer for three years now.  I always pray for his safety and that of his family when I see him.  He looks so proud!

Nice to have you visit us, JACKIE.  Come back often and tell us what you're up to.

Jane or anyone that plants tomatoes.

  Try this if you want some tomato plants. Take a slice of tomato about 1/2 inch , plant  it in a container with about 1/2 inch dirt over top. Cover it with a clear bag or I used plastic wrap and set it in the window in a sunny spot. I did this and now have tomato plants poking their heads through!!

I made sure that the slice of tomato had seeds in it...think this one was beefsteak so we shall see how it progresses.

Well, never thought of that, Amy, but had done potatoes when they sprouted & had a nice patch. I did cover mine last night & looks like we have SNOW in the forecast for next Tuesday-Wed. Ouch! I will have to do a better job for that next storm since the whole "back side" of this tent was open to the cold wind. Thinking, thinking...

Better go see where Tom went, he stayed inside during the night but went out before I left for church. Somebody (Callie or Tom) had bunny for breakfast & left the innards for me to clean up by the back door... yuck. Will have to keep an eye on Tom to make sure he goes out if he acts like his tummy is upset. Callie is nowhere in sight & I can't remember if she was in or out when I left.

Jenny, I thought of Michele & the family all through church, praying for a break for all of them. She must have a very special job to suffer so much, I've always heard that "God doesn't ask for more than we can handle"..... He must be very proud of her and all the family.

And now I must get busy. Egg biscuit from McDonald's to eat, I had 3 slices of French toast before leaving so this is breakfast #2. Wishing ALL a Super Sunday (thanks, Callie)...

Amy

Shirley, I did not think it would work either but the shoots are coming up in the pot on the kitchen window. I will have to find homes for them as I really don't want a lot of tomato plants. Just enough for table use is all. I go to the Mennonite's to buy bushels to do down.

Don't you wish God didn't trust us that much? When you have come through what Michele has I am sure she can handle anything.

Hi Joy....good to "see". You are missed!!!

Been a while since I have been here.

I am still having some medical issues.n Will be happy to have the first cataract surgery on the 26th.  The second one won't be until June 14th.

I am having a terrible time seeing.  Also having problems with my feet and legs swelling.  My daughter-in-law  comes in the mornings to wrap them.  another problem to deal with.  Not easy getting around[

Been having to use the wheelchair.  Just falling apart, I guess. LOL 

Hope everyone is doing well.  Did not read any of the postings today. Just wanted to say Hello.

JaneS

Hello Everyfriend!  And a special one to you, JOY!  So glad to "see" you poke your head in!  I'm sorry you're having such a bad time but glad you have someone nearby to help you out.

We're in  the process of cleaning up and putting away around here.  If I'm going to have house guests this coming weekend, I need space for them to move around, eat and communicate with one another.  So lots of "stuff" is being put away.  I sure hope I can find it after they all leave!

I'm planning a quick trip to the store on Tuesday and Mickie goes to the groomer on Wed. And I need to make a trip to the drug store for eye drops tomorrow.  Lots to do!  Then clean and change two beds before Thursday.  If you don't see me don't worry.  I'm just making up for time spent loafing!

And now, my eyes are going into slamshut mode so I better see if there are any zzzzs waiting in the bedroom for me to join them.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Forgot to say, I don't think I'll try planting the tomato because I'm not the best gardener in the world and there are people who give away free tomato plants.  But I sent the idea to my daughter Christy in Maryland and I'd be willing to bet she'll try it.

Good morning..

Not starting off all that warm with a temp of 40° but it is nice and sunny..

Busy day ahead of us here. First to the lumber yard to pick up material for another trug, home drop it off and then get ready to go back into town for Kyle to get a Holter monitor put on.

Jane, you have a very busy day ahead of you! Take time for you, stop a min for a break or two.

Patricia, is your snow all gone now?

Lloyd, is missing..

Better get a move on..

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

Just dropping by to say that I'm here.  Yesterday was not a good day for me but I think today will be a little better.  At least I feel a little less unstable this morning.

Hope everyone is doing OK this morning.

Take care, All.

Good Morning Everyfriend...especially PHYLLIS and AMY. 

PHYLLIS, sorry you had a bad day but I hope you're right about today being better. 

I slept all night last night for a change but Mickie is still hitting the deck early and we were up and moving a little before 6 a.m.  We had her pill in and breakfast and a walk before Cooper got here at 8:30 without his breakfast.  So we fed him and let him out in the yard and then I got busy.

I have the PA Dutch Pot pie rolled and ready to go when the girls are here on the weekend.  We'll have to decide what will be the best time because it's also on SIL Craig "like it" list.  I haven't made it for a while so I'm ready for some, too.  The chicken and broth are in the freezer waiting to make their appearance.

Now I'm off to get more stuff ready and made a run to town to pick up eye drops. 

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

Good morning from a still cool Interior. Our weather and barometric pressure have been bouncing. Our temperatures range between the thirties for a low and forties and fifties for highs. The snow has not been visibly melting but has been rapidly retreating. Everything is brown and white.

I haven't felt well the past week with my osteoarthritis.

Amy, I hope all goes well with Kyle's appointment and your day today. Yesterday I saw a Texas white sheet cake that I'll post for you when I'm able. I have no idea why it's called that, but it sounded good.

I ordered a new bed set, which will arrive this week. So that's something to look forward to. Other than that, I haven't done a lot.

Jane, it sounds like you're busy for a while, enjoy your family time. You're lucky to have them close. I'm going to look up your PA Dutch Pot Pie as it sounds like just the recipe for these cooler days.

Phyllis,  I hope today will see you going back to less pain and more normality. I think this cooler weather is affecting all of us this spring.

I hope all is okay with Lloyd?

Lloyd Hammond

Good afternoon everyone. well glad you all missed me, I spent another three days In the hospital. so I checked in as soon as I got Home. Home and felling good. Will talk to you all later.

Lloyd

Amy

Lloyd, glad you are back home ....now rest and take it easy please.

Patricia, thank you, I have printed off  the cake recipes and some of your sauce recipes also.

Another busy day has ended and my eyes are entering the slamshut stage.  I hear the zzzzzs calling me from the bedroom and I'm afraid they will be coming down the hall after me soon. 

PATRICIA, my kids are not ALL close by.  Two of them live in our hometown just around a couple corners from me and one granddaughter lives and works here.  One daughter lives in Maryland (about 2 and a half hour drive from here.  The one in Oklahoma  is coming for a visit on Thursday and staying until Tuesday.  That's why they are all gathering.  It's been 2 years since we've had a visit with Cindy and we're all excited.

Also, I could probably write down the recipe as I do it for the PA Dutch Potpie but not until after the kids are back to their places.  If you don't find one, let me know.  I've done it without a recipe most of my life.  I started helping to make it before I was out of high school and I've been at it ever since.  My grandmother and my mother didn't have a recipe written down but I remember writing it out for one of my granddaughters a couple years ago.  I might have kept a copy on the computer. 

It's not hard to make but it is a bit time consuming.  And I can't just make a little bit but it does freeze well.

Gotta go.  The busies are going to take over tomorrow and I have to sleep a bit before that happens.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

thanks everyone. well I got rid of the catheter, But it left some damage, was starched too tight and rubbed a sore spot In the wrong please, so now that to heal. I have some Plastic tank ends four foot square and a foot deep in a frame, Making a raised bed twenty foot long and four foot wide, with some 1/2" diameter P B C pipe Making bows over them two screech clear Plastic over, Making a miniature green house. lengthen the growing season on both ends. If you have the right window in the east or south east can set some big flower pots in front of and raise plants in them. I snuck a grape fruit seed in one of ours and have  tree growing, is about four inches tall with 6 leaves on it so far. If it get's too tall for in the house I will put it in the green house in the center, it can grow about 16 foot tall in there. I have friend in heaven, when she was with us here on earth, she grew a Lamon tree In a pot from seed. It got about two foot tall and bared lemons on it. I thing as many as three at a tome and full sized ones. more than one time. all it takes is T L C. Have a good day. I am going back to bed, the Nature call has been taken care of.

Amy

Good morning..

A frosty one here and they are calling for "s"...hope it finds another place to drop.....and NOT Alaska!

Picking the neighbour up after she drops her vehicle off this morning ,then taking her in when it is ready today.

We did pick up the lumber yesterday and some pieces have gone up in price...seems never ending and it really doesn't matter where you go ,it is all the same. Even grocery prices are soaring.

Jane, this year I am going to can turnip. David said that it turns out great and if you need turnip for a stew etc, just open a jar and dump it in. Saves cooking it up all the time.

Ok Lloyd, I am putting both you and Kyle on the  front porch when it warm up. He is wearing a Holter monitor with wires abound and has to keep it on till tomorrow. That way you both can jaw and stay out of trouble.

Phyliss, hope today is a much better day for you.

Patricia, what colour did you get your bed set in? Hope you also feel much better today..

Better get ready ,neighbour will be leaving shortly.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  The sun is shining and the temp is supposed to reach the mid 60s today.  I can live with that.

Jackie, we call them "couch potatoes" here, too.

AMY, I pulled weeds for 10 minutes yesterday and had half a bagful and sore back!  I'm not much good any more.

This morning we were up early again and I was still tired after Mickie was out and in and had her pill.  So we hit the couch for her hour of "wait time" after the pill.  Then we had breakfast and I tood a shower and we took a nice walk!  I put some more stuff away and now I'm having my second cup of coffee and a visit with friends

AMY, KEEP THAT SNOW ON YOUR SIDE OF THE BORDER!!

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