Good Night everyone. No need for me to try help. I am lckye to reamer what I done today.

Time to hit the haystack!  My eyes have been in slamshut mode for at least an hour now. 

You all did better with the pictures than I did.  Even some of the ones I thought I should recognize, I just couldn't put a name to.  The faces were familiar but my mind was blank.

Today was a gorgeous Spring day and on my doggie walks there were lots of people out in theri yards or also walking.  It got up into the high 70s in the afternoon and the sun shone most of the day!

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

Good morning...

Another rainy day ahead of us for the next few days. A lot of  jobs/to dos ahead of us today. I did manage to get most of doing nothing yesterday done with one load of laundry thrown in. :2funny:

Janie, we always like talking with you. High 70's wow we did get to high 50's here for a while. Kyle and I sat out on the deck and enjoyed the birds singing. Lot of different ones it seems this year. Also had to say NO to starlings that thought they should nest in the mail box. Shut the metal door but they managed to open it and start building again. Next was a piece of wood that I jammed across the door so they couldn't open it. Persistent creatures they are.

Best get ready to meet the day..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Jane, there is a recipe for you in what's for dinner...air fryer green beans. We tried your grilled cheese in the air fryer and won't go back to doing them in the pan. SO GOOD!!

Good Morning everyone. I never looked at the tattletale to see what it said about how much sleep I got, But Toney and Nicole Bought seven acers with a duplex and a shop on it. Both duplex's have two garages on them. well we are going to go with them and let bob steel our place here and let god take care of things. we are going to have a public sale and dispose of all things we do not need. one of our nephews came over and took the broken parts out of our R V. we are going to go get new parts today and in a few days he will come back and put the new parts on the R V for us so we will be able to do some traveling. Have a good day and a better tomorrow.

YAYYY Lloyd!! I am so happy to read this !! See, God is taking care of you! When one door closes another opens and it is so nice that you all will be together. Good that an auction sale will be had too. Leave
 only dust behind .
I have to admit planting poison ivy for him  has come across my mind.  :))) Some people are not worth much on this earth and Bob is one of them.
Now go easy when you are packing up and don't strain that heart or anything else either. We NEED YOU here as does your family .

All I seem to do lately is eat & sleep. Jane & Jackie, I really did come by to say good night but guess I forgot to post it. Okay, brain was already asleep, you think? I'm waiting for the sun to come up and the opposum to go back to sleep so I can open the gate to the pool area for the cats. They can all (cats & critters) go over that fence but so far I haven't found any opposum inside and the fox can't get into pool. The cats feel safer with the gate closed at night & so do I. Wildlife does not show up after dawn, usually.

Got to head to Walmart today for more fish bread & an extra loaf for me. I like to keep French bread on hand since I put at least 8 eggs in a sandwich loaf mix, I'm getting more protein than if I'm just having pancakes. When French toast showed up in the freezer section at the store I decided I could freeze my own, so I do. Just pop in toaster & butter & syrup when hot. Yummy.... I let it dry/air on the cake/cookie racks before freezing in 4 packs. I do put enough sugar in my mix that it is good with just butter.

Cats all fed, Tom is laying by the door outside. He stayed in last night because we were to get rain, but in his heart he is still a feral. Tiger goes down to the river with us but stays in most of the time. Callie likes "her" garage with heated bed. She is older & needs her sleep without watching for the bad guys & sleeps in her bed as long as it's plugged in & warm. She has a litter box, water & a self feeder full of dry Friskies Indoor Delights out there. They are spoiled, for sure, but a lot of company.

Time to feed me & get on with the day. Cold front moving in so instead of 80 today the high goes back to the 60s all week. Still trying to organize clothes but bopping back from summer to winter doesn't help! Tom moved around to the bedroom door. He likes to spend the day sleeping in my bedroom. I can't let him have the run of the house anymore, he was forgetting his "house" manners & "marking" HIS territory. I was spending more time cleaning up his messes than when I had 3 little kids to scrub after! He doesn't do that in my bedroom.

Good morning, Amy & Lloyd! Sounds like you both have your days organized. Be safe & happy. Nothing better than bird watching from a comfy chair. Would never have thought of planting poison ivy, Amy, but I do like the way your mind works!  :knuppel2:

Good morning from the Interior with forty-five degrees and shooting for a high of fifty-eight. Nothing but cleaning scheduled for today and tomorrow, I have to get errands done that I had to put off.

Amy

For a day that was not planned too much we have run the roads 3 times!! Once to pick up wood, next a trip to pick up 30 bundles of  cedar kindling (which smelled so good) then back into town for a med change.  On the last trip we also picked up geraniums and some brussel sprout plants. Now to see what else needs to be done..

Feel good story.

My friend has an amazing granddaughter that has just moved into her new to them home. Lots of work to do but they are young and have lots of help. What they didn't have was a vegetable garden  so Grandpa said he would borrow uncle's tiller and if she would mark out her new garden he would do it. Sunday came along and Grandma went up to see the new home in work clothes to help out...or so the story was to go. GD was telling Grandma  what was going to be done by Grandpa for her new garden. Little did she know that sneaky Grandma had other plans and when a truck back in her drive way she found out! Grandma and kin had gone together to hire this man to make her garden ready to plant. They took the sod off, put down 3 way mix and fluffed the soil.....tis already to plant now. Grandma sent me a photo and I don't think you could wipe the grin off of either ones face. This was a lovely welcomed surprise!!

Amy what a sweet gift that they'll never forget!

Patricia, my friend and her granddaughter have a special bond. They challenge each other to see which one can read the most books in a year.

Well!  There you all are!  I got busy with my desk and an appointment and never got back in.  I had an appointment with a hearing specialist and it seems my good ear is almost as bad as my bad ear.  The long and short of it is, I'm being fitted with hearing aids tomorrow and maybe I can become part of the world again!  I sure hope so.  Since, due to face masks, there are no lips to read any more, I've been having to say "What" a lot more often.

As to the paper work, I did so much of it today that I became "brain weary" and I'm not so sure that isn't worse than "bone tired"!  My brain just didn't want to do any more.

Frankie came over to use my bathtub to give Cooper a bath and she and her friend stayed for supper.  We finished up the last of the potpie and they agreed that it tasted even better than it did the first time.  Then they left Cooper here while they went to WM and then picked him up on the way home.

LLOYD, I'm so happy for you and your family.  The duplex sounds perfect and you'll have your family close to you.  I'm with AMY!  Plant poison ivy as close to the porch as you can!

SHIRLEY, you and your kitties sure do have a good relationship!  I think they must know a good thing when they see it!

AMY, what a nice story!  I think I have a good relationship with my granddaughters (especially Frankie) but that was a really special thing they did for their granddaughter! 

PATRICIA, it sounds like you might be seeing the coming of SPRING!

I'm going to play 3 word games and then head for the haystack!  I'm not just tired tonight.  I'm sleepy and my brain is weary!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

GOOD NIGHT EVERYFRIEND!!

I'll turn out the lights, maybe leave a nightlight burning in case someone else is late getting to bed. Busy day tomorrow with eye exam at 10:15 & afternoon will try to make it to the art guild meeting. Haven't gotten there in over a year between Covid & bad timing. The meetings are on the other side of town so the day is shot & I struggle to get my necessaries taken care of as it!

Jane, I really had not thought about not being able to read lips but my sister-in-law also just got hearing aids for the first time. She lost hearing in one ear as a child (scarlet fever) & has only had 50% in her good ear all her life. When my brother died last year I think their kids pushed her to get the aids being alone. She has had a lot of adjusting to do since he died, with the Covid & all. At 94 you would have guessed him no more than 65, just like our father was.

Lloyd, pleased you & Nancy already have your plans for the move. For sure you will miss what you have but sounds like you will have plenty space for the things you enjoy.

Kids all called so I need to get to bed. Tom & Callie are guarding the pool area. Callie caught her late night meal (ICK!!!) Tiger is somewhere in the house & I will check radar to see if Tom & Callie need to come in for the night.

Sweet dreams and God Bless EveryFriend. Love y'all. Shirley

A good rainy/snowy evening from the Mile High City.  We are really getting a wonderful soaking👍

Michele is working her heart out with her PT team.  She is still so weak, but Dave said she will not quit until she nearly drops.  The team met today to talk about her progress so they could make a guess as to when she might be strong enough to go home.  They will talk to her tomorrow.  Unfortunately the intern came in tonight and said that it would probably be 5/21. This was not well accepted, needless to say.  Dave tried to calm her down saying they must wait for the official word from her team.  They are extremely upset that their Thursday meeting with oncology has been postponed AGAIN, three weeks in a row.  They know the cancer is spreading rapidly and she has had no chemo treatments for much too long.  They just do not understand WHY this happening😩😢 

JANE, happy for you getting some "new ears" to help your hearing.  Seems that is a popular thing many friends are doing these days....that and getting cataract surgery! 

LLOYD, I am so happy to read what you and the family will be doing for a new home.  It sounds great and I wish you the best in selling the items you will not need any more.


AMY, your feel good story is delightful!  Thank you for sharing.  It was ANOTHER busy day for you and Kyle.  You two never let ANY grass grow under your feet, do you?

It is bedtime as I have had a few interruptions.....I made sure to save this elsewhere so I would not loose it.

Pleasant dreams to all.

JaneS, what words games do you play? On line?
I bought TextTwist2 long ago and I love it. I used to play Super Letter Linker but unfortunately it has been discontinued.

JaneS

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm in the middle of making dog food and when the beeper goes...so do I. 

BUBBLE, the word games I play are all in the MICROSOFT SOLITAIRE COLLECTION.  They have card games, tile games and word games and you can download it to your computer free and play any of the games you want if you don't mind watching commercials.  They're not long and I rest my eyes during them.  If you want to eliminate the commercials, you can pay the fee but I'm too stingy to do that!

Gotta go make dog food.  JENNY, prayers continue for Michele!  We have to trust God!  Sometimes we disagree but we have to trust!

I'll be back!

Good morning.

Cloudy with more rain today..after watching some parts of the States getting hammered with tornados I am not complaining about welcomed rain.

Don't know what is on for today other than work around home. Can't work outside with the garden but lots to do inside.

Jenny, Michele is so strong to get through what she has and still fights on. Prayers continue here. Jenny if we let the grass grow under our feet we would only have to cut it... :2funny:

Patricia, did you get to a high of 58° yesterday?

Joy, Gloria and Phyllis,, hope all is well in your world.

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

The joys of a rural mailbox ..
Yesterday a starling decided that our mailbox was the perfect spot for her nest!  After cleaning out all the nesting material they had put in I closed the door and thought that was that. Silly me, I don't know how they got the door opened again but proceeded to build again. This time I put a piece of wood across the door, can't open it now. 
Today I thought they would have given up so took a huge plastic bag with some cardboard to sort of plug the area of the box. Just checked the mailbox, saw the note I left for the mailman crumpled and when I reached to the back to pull the plastic out I grabbed something ALIVE....yes I let out a scream ,laughed and let the bird out. This time the door has been closed with the stick again and a phone call made to the PO to let them be aware of what is happening.
One has to admire their tenacity.

Good morning from the Interior, where it's presently 42 degrees and an expected high of 61 degrees. Amy, we did reach 60 degrees yesterday, and it seemed to be slowly warming. It's different from 2020 when we were in the low to mid-seventies in that May!

I had planned to attempt going downtown today, but an Amazon order didn't arrive, and they're going to try for today. I did get several flattened boxes ready to go downstairs today, and hopefully, I can go out tomorrow.

Shirley

Amy, might try my threat to all critters NOT WELCOME.... bought some moth balls at the Dollar Tree & just a few in any spot a critter intrudes will convince them they should move on!  A dollar box or package will go a long way, even in a berm that looked like a nice place to live to skunks, raccoons & opposum.

Been to the eye doc to be tested for new glasses. Goodness, 22 vision without anything for reading but need help with distance. Sure be nice to not have to guess what those signs are saying when driving thru cities!  :o

Amy

Shirley, thank you, never thought of MB will pick some up tomorrow.

Happy to read you are all set now on your eye test.

Well, AMY has birds, SHIRLEY has eyes and now I have ears.  I got the hearing aids today and I'm in awe.  The TV is turned up to about half where it was before, I can hear Mickies toenails on the wood floor when she's following me and when we went for a walk, I heard a phone ringing in someone's house.  I keep stopping to see "what that noise was" and it's just normal stuff I haven't heard in a while.  I actually heard my turn signals clicking on the way home and when Frankie stopped in, she didn't have to yell at me.  I'm beginning to wonder what all I've been missing!  A whole new world is opening up!
