Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm ready and waiting for Christy to arrive!  She's about 40 minutes away.  When she leaves home, she texts me and I put the timer on so I know when she'll be here.

First thing we have to do is make out way to the Mennonite Sewing Machine guy so he can fix her machine.  After that....gardening if the rain holds off.  She's bringing tomato and pepper plants that they started.  We might find ourselves running between the drops.  We're supposed to have off-and-on rain today and tomorrow.

Also, when you wish the bad weather away from CALLIE, could you possible wish it South/east/or west?  If it moves north, it will be hitting my Daughter, SIL, Gdaughter and husband and two children!

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

Jane, I just hung the laundry out so no rain needed here for the moment.
Have fun playing in the dirt :)

I've tried so many kinds of apples but still come back to Granny Smith for applesauce.  We like it tart.....and lumpy.  For just eating...Honeycrisp is our choice.  We are having a nice pork tenderloin tomorrow so applesauce making is on the agenda for today.  My mother used to make applesauce with the "red-hots", Jane.  It's been a long time since I've had them that way.

Sunny and cool today.  Looks beautiful outside my window and down through the thick, green woods.

Take care, All.

Beautiful J. Lawson card, Gloria.  Thank you.  Happy Mother's Day to all the moms here.

Gloria,thank you for the beautiful card. Mothers day will be again phone calls. I can't wait till we can all get together..think we will be so busy hugging the dickens out of each other!

Phyllis, that is the first time I had heard of red hot in applsauce from Jane. Now I am going to have to get some to try.

Good morning everyone! We're predicted to reach a sunny seventy today, and I will attempt the kitchen re-organize this weekend. Other than that, not much else is scheduled.

Jane, thanks for the quick applesauce recipe! Yesterday, I grated some apples and made muffins. I believe I'll also attempt a pandowdy sometime this weekend as well. I have two earlier gallons of applesauce in my freezer, so I may attempt some other recipes or pies soon. These are way too tart for simply eating.

I don't know if I have a favorite type of apple. I've always favored peaches and other stone fruit. I do know I'm not that fond of granny smiths, which were my daughter's favorite. Granny Smith, red delicious, and other sweeter apples are the most common sold locally.

Amy, I believe we may have the Mutsu here as there are different yellow apples in the stores.

Gloria, thank you, beautiful card! I hope your Mother's Day is lovely!

I need to purchase some new pots and kitchen garden herb seeds and soil. I hope to utilize fresh rather than dried herbs in my cooking this year. I already have variously flavored salts and peppercorns in four grinders that I tried and loved over Christmas and early spring. My absolute new favorite is rainbow peppercorns, fresh and a tiny bit sweet.

We are still having new cases and some new deaths from Covid so the recently publicized opening plans aren't happening. We did have a lull until a couple of varients made it here from the fishing fleets.

CallieOK

Thanks for mentioning me, Amy.

Just finished watching Commencement at Oklahoma State University via live-stream.  It was in the stadium and I probably had a better view from my recliner of Sir Carson receiving his diploma than his family did sitting in the stands.
Carson's Dad said the school gave all the graduates a rain poncho but there were only a few sprinkles and radar doesn't show any storms approaching...

...that might hit Tulsa area, Jane.

Miss Ellen flew in Thursday for the big weekend.  I think she/Miss Emily have surprise plans for their Mom tomorrow afternoon. 
Then the entire family will have a cook-out at #2 son's house.

Miss Ellen will be here for lunch on Monday so I'll get to have some one-on-one time with her before she flies back to NYC on Tuesday.

All well in my corner of the world.
Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

I only have a minute but I had left a message on Joy's phone twice and today I got an answer from her DIL.  Joy is in rehab and she did not have the cataracts removed yet.  She is having too much pain in other parts of her body (I think legs and feet especially).  They are dealing with that but they can't even start that until she quarantines from Covid.  Her DIL said she would be happy to keep me informed and will call me with any news. 

Now I have to get back to work in the garden before the rains come!

Amy

Jane, thank you for letting us know about Joy..can't be easy for her. Now get back and play in the dirt.

Callie, hope you can share the surprise the kids have for their Mom.

Patricia, the kids are taking a china cabinet...not a nice antique one, painting it and turning it into a herb "garden" they will put grow lights in it.

We just had the nicest young man come by and queried about a trug. I asked him when he wanted it for and he said for Mothers Day!! We did have one sitting out but the man was to get back to us and didn't so the young man was in luck. I mentioned what a nice young man he is  to do this for his Mom. The fellow that helped him said that most would spend $$ on drugs and booze. I think this young man is a keeper!!

Here to say good night to all.... too tired to think but am sorry to hear Joy is in re-hab. Do hope family will be able to visit her, especially tomorrow for Mother's Day! Thanks for the message, Jane.

Loved the Jackie Lawson, Gloria, thank you! How about those apples & the good ole days....

I've had my shower, washed my hair & greased me up for another day! Sweet dreams to all and God Bless. Love ya, Shirley

Amy

Good morning...

Happy Mother's day and although we won't be able to enjoy as we wish, we will make up for it when we can.

Beautiful sunny day here, perfect for a walk or just a drive in the country. Not sure what we will do other than rest. :)

Have a prime rib to put in the oven along with baby potatoes and vegetables,that will be supper along with pie.

Jane, did you get all the gardening done without the rain?

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

good Morning Amy and everyone else that follow. we are going to go out for lunch to a place called king chef. they have several big long tables long. of every kind of food imaginable. Only thing wrong with that is you eat too much  trying to get your $$$$ worth. we are cloudy here, we had thunder boomers on and off all night long. we are going to do our church on tv live from the church we attend. Have a great day.

Not too many people in here today.  I hope they were all celebrating Mothers Day!

We got all the garden work done just before the rains came.  Counting a trip to WM for more mulch, some potting soil and a few more plants, we worked about 6 hours straight today and we were just dragging out the weeds for my son to pick up Wednesday and take to the recycling to be turned into mulch when it started to rain.  I have one 2 by 2 foot patch between the bushes along the driveway to finish weeding.  I just plain couldn't finish it but I work on that area every time I go for walks with Mickie or somewhere in the car so it'll get done.

I'm not all in but my shoe strings tonight.  My shoe strings are in, too.  And I'm tired right up the gazoo!  If I don't sleep soundly tonight, I'll be very surprised. 

PATRICIA, I loved the animal families and, like AMY, I'd like to cuddle them too.  But I don't think I'd want to come between the mothers and babies.

Everyone in my family....kids and their wives, grandkids and their spouses and even my grandson's (very close) girlfriend either called or texted me HMD wishes!  Even my very special niece texted me!  I've always referred to her as "my favorite niece".  I have one niece!  She calls me her FAJ (favorite Aunt Janie) Her father had lots of brothers and sisters so she has a lot of aunts but only one AJ!

I'm going to take Mickie out one last time and then head for the haystack.  I hear someone lined it with extra-soft hay and wrapped it in blankets so it's ready for me.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, everyone!

Good night everyone. we had a good feed out, and I was wise enough to not over do the feed wagon. see you all tomorrow.

Lloyd

Amy

Good morning.

Tad chilly here with overcast sky and a temp of 28°that will go to a high of 54°.

Had a wonderful MD doing things that I wanted to do . Sat out on the verandah a couple of times having out tea along with phone calls.

Have a dental appointment this morning then the rest of the day is free.

Jane, David is closer to you as he is heading back to PA than me!! I also played in the dirt yesterday getting it ready to plant. Neighbours stopped by to say hello and have a chat while I was outside. Way to go on all the gardening work you both accomplished.

Lloyd, wise man to know not to over do it. We also enjoy going to buffets but all have been closed here now. When we were travelling we would to go Golden Corral........goodness it was delicious.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Mickie and I are waiting for the boinger and then breakfast.  It's still wet out there.  We didn't have to sprinkle anything except the two flower plantings under the roof at the back entrance (where the porch swing is and where everyone comes into the house).  I'm going to get one more hanging planter (maybe two) for out there but every time I picked out something to buy, I had to fight with Christy over who paid so I put that off until she left.  I can handle that on my own!

AMY, I hope you told David to text me or call when he's going to be near Lewisburg.  If I can meet up with him, I'll send you a hug!

LLOYD we use to love the buffets too when the kids were at the age where they at anything and everything!  We had some good ones around here, too!

It's almost time for the boinger so I better sign off and get ready to meet the day!  It's still cloudy around here but the rain has stopped.  When I tood Mickie out first thing this morning, I checked out the planted areas and they were just wet enough!  When we get back from our walk, I'll sprinkle the two that need sprinkling and everything will be hunky-dorey!

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

A good Monday HELLO to EVERYFRIEND 🌷 We are having more rain turning to snow tonight. This has certainly been a strange spring.  Cannot complain  about the moisture as we all need it so badly, HOWEVER it sure would have been nice to have had a sunny warm Mother's Day.

PATRICIA, thank you for  the darling video you shared....nothing finer than mama's with their babies💞

Thank you, Gloria, for the nice Jacquie Lawson Mother's Day Card.  It was enjoyable as always 🌷

JANE, happy for you to have had the fun weekend time with Christy.  Sounds like you got a LOT gone.  Very sorry to read that JOY is in a care center.  I hope the next update is much better.  Thank you, Jane, for sharing this news.

CALLIE, we all know the best seat in the world is in our recliners right in front of the TV.....CONGRATULATIONS to Sir Carson 🤩 Enjoy your one on one time with Miss Ellen today💞. Have you read about the Burro opening up again under new ownership?  In the past their menu choice would NEVER fly there, but these days the clientele might have a different pallet??

Oh AMY, you caught my attention when I read PRIME RIB🥰🥰🥰 How lucky that young man was to be able to walk up and buy a trug from you for his mama!  He must be one special son💞💞

Michele was feeling much better yesterday, but sadly only one of the three PT'S were there yesterday. 😩  She miss three days of some workouts due to her extreme headaches and nausea.  We hope and pray she can empress them enough this week to convince them to let her out of there.  Due to weather the children were not allowed to go see her yesterday. 😡 Crual😩😢

I must go get started on my exercises.

Have a wonderful day EVERYFRIEND ‼️

The day was perfect.....after the dentist appointment that is. Not a fan of dentists even though I do have a good one.

We struck out across country and ended up at the chocolate factory. You are not allowed in but can tell the lady what you want and she will get it for you. Kyle is all set now for a while..I hope. Our drive took us on streets that has the most beautiful magnolia  trees and they were just loaded with blossoms! After that we scooted on home..


Jane, I did tell him that  ,one never knows which way he will be travelling.

This has been a lax day and I am not going to spoil it with work :)

Jenny you snuck in on me...guess I had better not tell you both dogs has some prime rib on their breakfast this morning to get them to eat something before we left!

Good morning from the Interior! This is the first moderately warm, at 60 so far, sunny day without rain or snow. If all goes by the old weather patterns, today or tomorrow should show the greening.

In the Arctic, the greening is a period of time, in an hour or less, when everything greens up at once, Some people can foretell the time by seeing a light haze of green on trees, but I've never seen this. It's an amazing time as literally everything erupts in green in a short time period over thousands of miles. The ridges, foothills, and plains can turn from somber brown to vivid green in an instant. I've never seen this anywhere else.

Farrah is getting pushy and vocal. She has never meowed, but I've picked up on the sounds she makes for what she wants or needs over time by association. For example, food is "Annnnuh." Now, a treat is different; it sounds more like "Nnuh." I've had people telling me I imagine this, but it's true. Alan recorded what she sounded for a treat and mimicked the sound to their cats. Bonnie immediately perked up and went to the treat canister in their hallway. So he's a believer.

Cats don't use the meow sound unless they're talking to people. They don't use it among themselves, as has been shown. So, learning and mimicking the sounds a feral cat uses is one way to communicate.

I'm sure dogs have similar habits as do other animals, either verbal or non-verbal.

JaneS

PATRICIA, you're right about dogs having different sounds for different things.  Mickie has to take a pill every morning and I set the timer on my phone for an hour.  If I don't respond to it immediately, she gives me about 45 seconds and then says something that sounds like "mmmmmmmMMMMmmm"  She has a totally different sound when she thinks it's time to get up in the morning but there are no letters for it.  There are other ones too.  My family thinks it's really neat!

It is neat! Think about all of those animals trying to communicate and wondering what's with all those folks not getting it!

Here is a cockatoo, one of many on Youtube, who loves to dance;

This parrot has a nervous habit of plucking his feathers, but he loves to dance

Daddy was listening to reggae. I'm digging it I think I will allow some more of this

All cute, PATRICIA! 

Now I'm off to bed.  I accomplished everything on my list today and it made me tired!  I didn't even take a nap this afternoon!  I was so busy looking stuff up that I totally passed it by. 

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

Good morning.

 Cool here temp is sitting at 32° at the moment and we will
 get rain later on . Last evening we got another truck load of wood so piling it is our job today.

Patricia, with these two we get the Border Collie stare..or "THE LOOK"  and you can feel that look!! Jessie is more vocal at times...he will wait patiently at the door to go out and if that doesn't work he will bark. Golden girl would rattle the door nob when she wanted out. Now for treat these two do team work on you. She will stand in front of you, ears forward tail wagging while giving you "The Look"


Well the wood won't pile itself.........darn it.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.
