Good morning...

A day of rest here, just the essentials being done and I am going to go play in the sewing room. :thumbup:

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm on my last box of eye drops and my last day will be Tuesday!  I can hardly wait!  It seems like that's all I get done these days and I have to get packed and ready for the wedding on this coming Saturday!  Kyle has made the right choice and, of course, Tori also made the right choice!  They are so good together!

Now I have a load of wash in the washer and stuff laid out on the spare bed and more on my bed that I have to go through and make choices.  Cooper is here today and he's being a good boy!  My mind is going berserk trying to remember everything!

AMY, enjoy your "day off"!  Of course, I know you won't exactly take a "day off".  I doubt that you ever do that!  But do what pleases you best!

MG, I hope you are soon settled in but I bet that won't happen soon either.  Moving is one of the most difficult things we do and while it's hard to move a family from an apartment to a new house, it's even harder to move our old bones from a house back to an apartment!

I wish you all a pleasant day!  Make it your own in every way!  And don't forget to share it with us!  We miss you when you don't stop by!

A good Superbowl Sunday to all.

I enjoyed and appreciated ALL of the nice comments made to me.  Everyone of them resonated well with me🥰. Yes, it is difficult to not want to push oneself to get this all behind me, I know you have to let time take its course.  That being said we decided after all the good report from my surgeon that we would go ahead with our tentative plans to take a flight to our son and DIL's in San Francisco.  Everything went smoothly getting here and they are doing everything to make me comfortable.  We are so excited to be here with them for the game today and Valentine's Day. 

JANE, I pray that the new pup will be OK.  Sad that they had to cut their time short with you. So excited for you and your family to have this wedding soon.  Such a joyous time❣️ Good news on the eye drops being nearly done.  Hope they are doing a good job for you.

MARS, good to read that the move in progress is going well.  I can only imagine how difficult it is to have to give up so many items that you just can't take with you😩 The size of the washing machine/dryer is a bit frightful.  We have discussed this issue after seeing that many places only have the mini machines.  I know you will find a way to work through this.  I think you have done very well with the frustration and stress that a move like you are doing brings‼️

PATRICIA, oh believe me I am not cheerful all the time.....and having  a hubby that does so much for me certainly makes a huge difference.  At first I just out of the blue would just have  melt down.....tears flowing at the frustration of the whole situation.  Your kind words are taken wisely‼️

I have much more I would like to comment on but my sholder is saying it is done‼️‼️

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning from an Interior finally back in the high twenties. Today's low was plus sixteen! Of course we are having a heavy snow but that's probably a joy as well, except for those needing to maneuver through it and not play with it.

We've had a tough two days in our meet and greets with two serious illnesses, flu and a virus, so there has been a lot of discussion and worry but we're all hoping for the best.

Jenny, it's so nice to see you back with us again. Enjoy your time with family and the game!

Jane, I know you're going to be happy to see the end of those eye drops, and the wedding, Saturday. Let us know how Lennie is doing when you hear back. It's hard not to worry when an animal is so young!

Amy, enjoy your day of rest although I agree with Jane on how restful it'll actually be.

MG, I hope your issues with the new apartment are solved soon and favorably.  Moving is very hard, especially going from a house to an apartment. I think you're be fine and you have your cats with you. Locally, very few apartments allow pets. That was one of the big draws for me when I originally signed on to the waiting list here.

I do a lot of local and worldwide real estate browsing and there is a 2,200 sq.ft., two bedroom, two bath, condo for sale locally that allows two pets. However, the price, fees and monthly HOAs, preclude my doing more than dreaming about it. It's located by a river, the university And it's in a gated community.

Yesterday was not a good day for me but today is better even though it is dreary outside.  I was surprised to see my daffodils are in bloom.  I guess spring is on the way.

I just put pork chops in the oven with roasted sweet potatoes and onions with bourbon seasoning over all.  It already smells so good.

Take care,  All.

Christy said she got medicine from the vet and Lennie seems to be fine with it.  She will see the vet (I think she said Tuesday) and then we'll know for sure.  But the vet did say it minor!

I'm almost ready to throw in this day!  I've been getting up earlier on the days that Cooper comes so I can get dressed, make the bed and get one set of eye care done and have my breakfast before he gets here.  That makes it a long day and once Frankie picks him up and I've done the last eye care, I'm ready to throw in the towel!

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  Make it your own day but don't forget to share it with us.

PHYLLIS, it was nice to see you stopping by!

Good early morning to all!

The cats are being rowdy this morning, and noisy while at it. Oscar usually avoids ruff and tumble with Shan, but the last two days they have been having mock fights. Oscar almost always avoids these with Shan, but the new apartment seems to have activated him.

Today I must visit the dentist for a possible loose tooth and/or a missing piece of filling. Yesterday I had to take my new cell phone to the Xfinity store because I couldn't get it activated. Well, they couldn't either. Meanwhile, my old phone that was no longer working yesterday because the number was in the process of being ported to new phone became active again last evening. I don't have time to sort this out today because I need to move more stuff from the house. I still have most of my kitchenware and dishes to move, more books, etc. the need packed. Sue isn't going to push her luck by helping for a while, so it is just down to me. Bob, my contractor, will help with moving the stuff I can't and clean out the rest for trash when I am ready. This is taking way too long to suit me. Depending on the weather tomorrow, I may take the phone back over to Xfinity. I am thinking of just telling them to forget it, give them the phone back and cancel the mobile service with them. I'll have to make sure that my TracFone account is still active and working, though. I also have to check in with the rental office about my dryer not drying well and the tub pop-up drain plug will not pop up to drain the tub. I have to hold it up until the tub is empty. I have yet to try out the dishwasher because the dishwasher detergent is still over out the house. I've decided to get a new microwave oven, something a little smaller than the one I have now. The stove is nice, but I only have one small frying pan here as yet to test out the whole unit. My back is aching just thinking about all this. Meanwhile, I am getting antsy because I want everything done so I can concentrate on getting my taxes done.

It is 31o right now and may get up over 50o before we get into wet weather. Tomorrow will be a mix of rain and snow.

Phyllis, your meal sounds yummy.

Jenny, I am glad you made it out to San Francisco for the big game.

Have a great day everyone.

JaneS

Good Morning MG and anyone else who shows up!

MG, WHEW! I thought I was up and attem but you made me tire enough to head back for the sack!  I'm sure glad I don't have to think about moving at this point in my life.  It's too bad your ?sister? isn't able to help you.  I hope she heals well!  It'll be nice to be close to her....if you ever manage to settle in!  It sounds like the kitties are working on that, too!

Frankie will be dropping Cooper off in a bit so I guess I better be ready to go.  He'll be hungry when he gets here and ready for a walk right after he eats!  So.....here goes my day!  Make yours a good one!  And be sure to share it with us!

Good morning...

I am up but heading back to bed! After reading all that MG has done and Jane is to do tuckered me out!!! :)

Work around home today, need a pot of soup made,not sure what kind yet and we are out of baked beans so that too will be done in the IP.one hour and 30 min and no soak the beans overnight. I did manage to "rest" yesterday in my sewing room. All four borders are sewn together now 332 pieces with just the  4 corner blocks to do.

Jane it is times like this we wish we could go help each out, many hands make light work and plus we would get to pet MG's kittens if they would let us. Glad that Leenie is on the mend with his mends.

MG,You deserve a rest! Once all the unpacking is done and items bought that you need you can put your feet up!

Phyllis, I agree with  MG, your dinner sounds delicioue!!! Glad you are feeling better.

Rick, did you read about the pork chop dinner Phyllis made? That may be one you would like to try.

Patricia, sorry to read about your friends. As we mature (notice I didn't say age) we seem to be losing alot of friends and acquaintances. The weekly paper will always have someone we know in it that has passed .

Jenny, enjoy your time away! You have earned it.!

Callie, hope all is well in your nexk of the woods.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Just had pork chops yesterday. Phyllis' sound good, but no alcohol here. I do them in a pan, entirely on top of the stove, and guaranteed tender. Veggies separate.

No alcohol here either, Rammel,  The bourbon seasoning I used is bourbon flavored pork rub from McCormick Spices.  They make a whole line of rubs and spices.  Bought at the grocery store and comes in a packet.

Try Googling the McCormick web site.       https://shop.mccormick.com/products/one-sheet-pan-bourbon-pork-tenderloin-chicken-parmesan-farmer-s-market-chicken?_pos=1&_psq=%20bourbon%20rub&_ss=e&_v=1

I just had a VERY interesting phone call!  It was LLOYD!!  He said he's still having trouble getting on the site to post.  And, among other things, he said his son was going to come by and see if he can help him get on the site!  He also said that he was just about to leave for the VA hospital to have them check some things out...his left hearing aid is causing pain in his ear; he has a sore leg (i think) and a breathing problem.  There was more but my memory is not so good!  Nancy is still having trouble with her leg but she's up and around! 

He misses us all!  He really wants to come by and visit!  And he's going to do his best to get in to the website. 

Please don't change the web site soon!  If I think of anything else he said, I'll be back!  He said some nice things to me and thanked me for trying to find him when he was missing!  So there you are!  Put that in your mind and mull it over!  A very nice surprise for me!  And I hope, another one for all of you!

Good? snowy morning here!. At 32o it can't make it's mind up as to when it wants to change to rain. We are now expected to get from three to five inches. But, with the temp expected to get to 44o, it will mostly end up with slush that will end up freezing overnight. Sue has her Dr. appointment tomorrow to check on her healing process. She is so looking forward to it but may have to postpone it until the weather improves. Meanwhile, the result of my dental appointment confirmed what I feared, but a little worse. The whole back of my tooth sheared off, even down under the gum. Since it didn't affect the nerve, I don't have any pain other than a sore gum, which, but the way, is all that is holding the tooth in. I was supposed to get a call from the dental surgeon's office yesterday afternoon, but have heard nothing. I expect they were busy rescheduling those who have appointments today. If I don't hear anything by mid-morning I will give them a call to see if they have my new phone number correct.

I see someone is out plowing the snow off the road but not the parking area, so it must be the township plow. Out back is a large parking area mostly unused. I expect that that will get cleared first so we can move our cars so they can do our parking spots. Oh, I guess I was wrong, he just plowed a lane through our parking lot. Curious to see how this all works out. I thought the rental manager said they would move our cars for us when they need to clear everything. I did not bring a snow shovel from the house on that statement. I didn't bring a shovel from the house, but I do have my snow clearing apparatus in the back seat of my car. Good thing I remembered to bring my snow boots.

I did manage to bring home my small sauce pan and frying pan, so I have to get used to stovetop and oven cooking again until I get a new microwave. BTW, what is your opinion of air fryers? Some of these new microwaves include an air fryer feature. I could have sworn I saw a few yesterday that also will broil/grill.


JaneS

[/b]Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm guessing that if you saw traces of LLOYD, it was really LLOYD.  He said he was in looking around but could not figure out out to post anything.  He said that he had actually tried but it didn't work.  I guess we'll see if his son got there and helped him out last night!

MG, you are really having problems!  I sure hope you figure out how to get it all worked out.  I'm so sorry about your tooth and I hope the dentist calls you with a solution!

We got the snow, too.  I'm not sure how much but Cathy was picking me up later for last-minute before-the-wedding things to do.  She has an appointment at 10 and was coming after that.  Since she lives in town, she'll probably make her appointment and the plow was down my road once but it needs more.  And my neighbor with OUR snow plow, won't be doing driveways until he does!  I'm saying a prayer that we don't end up with icy slush!

It's way too quiet out there!  But I'm going to pretend I don't notice that!  Try to enjoy your day everyfriend!  Make it your own in every way....and don't forget to let us know what you're up to!

Good morning..

We are 17° with a high of 31 to come.
 
No new snow here although it did try hard to snow yesterday, just a few flurries but nothing to worry about. Need to get that soup made today, not   fan fan of canned soup but they do in a pinch.

Jane and MG please keep the snow your way. I must admit we have been so lucky this year , not many dances have been had!

Jane, that is awful snow to move with  a snowblower. THey will plug up on you making the job harder.

MG, LOVE my airfryer! Food cooked in it comes out nice and crispy with the use of little or no fat used. I do canned potatoes in it, drain rinse the potatoe lightly spray  with coconut oil and sprinlke with garlic ,maple bacon and parmesan cheese. Jane has me now doing grilled cheese also. I will do up chicken or pork cutlets cook ,freeze in small pkgs then heat up in the airfryer. Between the airfryer and instantpot they are both good. Which reminds me we are out of baked beans. They take 1 1/2 hours to do, no soaking in the instant pot.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

My Fios cable/wire coming from the street to the house is hanging very low - due to snow. If a truck comes by I will be out of service. So if I vanish for a while, that is the cause.

According to the weather gurus, this area had 3.2 inches of snow overnight Sunday.  Sun came out yesterday and my yard/street/driveway were all clear by noon.

Miss Ellen had a short Facebook video of her street in NYC covered with snow and still falling.  She's "nannying" today and I'll bet she/the twins build at least one snowman.

Good morning, it's plus thirty-one at 8:41 am. We've had scattered snow showers all week, but today through the weekend will be sunny with some wind.

Tomorrow is said to warm up to fifty degrees, but that seems unlikely. Our humidity is at seventy percent, unusual for us, but perhaps we'll see more than the four inches we have presently.

Not much going on here, the case of flu turned out to be RSV, and he has been hospitalized, mainly because of age and previous conditions.

The virus turned out to be a bad cold, but she now has meds and is feeling better.
