Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's a sunshiny day today and the temperature is 45º heading for a high of 50 in the middle of the day.  I took Cooper for a walk this morning and we made the whole circle just as usual.  It sure felt good to get out and do the usual.

My kids are still saying I need to have someone here before I get in the shower so I'm planning that for late this afternoon or early evening when Frankie will be here. 

And maybe, just maybe, I'll make some cookies this afternoon.  I have them mixed up and ready to go.  I have to root out the cookie cutters and get started. 

AMY, you must have enough meat canned to last you the rest of the winter and then some.  I'm still planning to made vegetable soup after the holiday!  I have all the fixins except the meat.  I canned most of it last summer when the veggies were fresh.  And I have to make the squash soup that I have all the chopped up squash waiting for in the freezer.  See, life goes on!

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

Hello to all the missing friends.  I hope everyfriend is well and just too busy to visit!

Jane, with everything going up in price I thought that this deal on lean hamburg was too good to pass up.  I did get 18 pints done with a little left over to throw in their food for supper. Do you can or freeze your carrot soup?

Nice sunny day with a temp of 40° at the moment..

Amy, for three days of snowing, we acquired an inch on the ground. Yesterday was minus 28 and cooling; today is minus nine and warming. Yesterday, I finally cleaned and filled the humidifier after scratching my itching dry skin all day, and my eyes were so dry, I had to rinse them out. And Farrah hates it when I try to pet her and shock her instead. She seems to believe it was deliberate. :(

I don't think I've ever canned hamburger or any ground meat. Jeff, Dolly's husband, recently brought over some moose, bear, and Dall sheep meat for me, and it is so appreciated. I'm thinking about purchasing a small chest freezer and implementing a type of trade-off for store purchases in exchange for the fish and game I'm frequently gifted. It will be a hard sell, but I'd feel better knowing I contributed.

Good morning Lloyd and Gloria, I have W11 from my new laptop. I'm also noticing a few differences, such as if I move an item from one site to another computer site, it's a move. Still, if I attempt the same action from a location to my external drive, it shows as a copy, and I don't see a sign it was copied and do a second copy and check for assurance. Also, the right-click menu is different with the newer W11 preferences shown. You have to right-click other options at the bottom for  " other options" to see older W10  options.

Jane, even recovering, you do far more than I do; extraordinary!

It's time to say good night, before my eyes slam shut permanently!  I've had a good day...two walks with Cooper and lots done around the house.  And when Frankie got here, I took a good shower.  LLOYD, no men in my shower!  It would be far too crowded!

AMY, I do can the carrot soup in pint jars and it's usually just a nice bowlful for lunch or supper.  So far, no one has opted to share it with me.  They don't know what they're missing.  And now I've finishe up all that I canned in the summer and I'll need to make more.

I'm off to the haystack!  I sure hope it's loaded with zzzzs!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone, fell asleep early so now I am awake early. 49° and Thursday weather guessers are saying 60° Are we mixed up? I thought it was mid December almost winter but is more like late winter or very early spring.

LLOYD  so nice you have grands close enough to enjoy while they are young.

JANE  I have reached the stage where I take a shower when a CNA is here. I take and wash myself but feel better if someone is here. I leave the bathroom door open a little so she can hear if I yell. You sure have recuperated fast once you got home. Don't go overdoing things now that your daughters have gone home.

AMY  my daughter has taken advantage when good hamburg is on sale and canned it for later use. Now with the solar panels are connected she has a freezer again so she will put meat in that again.Took over a year for the batteries they ordered to be delivered-came from China of course :(

PATRICIA  I use Google Chrome more than Windows so sofar I am not bothered much with 11. I do check it out at times and see a lot of places to stream movies, some free to watch and others cost. Has the gamebox installed but that is something I will never bother with. Like Rammel said movies and games. Kind of like a combination of 10 and 11.

JANE  reading all you have done the last few days wore me out. Maybe I will go lay on the cough and watch TV if anything good is on.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's still dark out there but Frankie has gone to work and Cooper is refusing to leave her bed even for breakfast!  I have a feeling his stomach will take over soon. 

Right now it's 36º here and heading for a high of 48.  GLORIA, you called it!  It's more like Spring starting or early Fall.  I wonder if it will be a White Christmas?

I have no special plans for today except that the cookie cutters are out and I'm thinking maybe cookies this morning.  I hope you all have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning..

Overcast this morning with a temp of 28°. Taking hubby for a hair cut this morning, after that I don't know. Need to wash and put away the spoils from yesterday  and who knows??

Jane, have fun making cookies.

Gloria, if we were younger solar would be the way to go.  We will just have to be happy with our power company.

Patricia, that is not bad for 3 days of snowing,must have been a fine snow. Ours is just about gone leaving a lot of ice behind from the rain and they are calling for more rain on Wed. Crazy weather!

Better get ready..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone! I have nothing planned for today except for incremental. Yesterday I went shopping via Dolly and Jeff and stopped at 12:20 PM to take a photo of the sun going down at minus 29. The link is below.

Today is minus 38 for a high, and it won't start warming up again until Thursday.

One more day has ended and I still didn't get the cookies baked.  I just seem to be busy doing my exercises, putting in eye drops, cleaning up taking my medicine, doing more exercises, taking Cooper for walks, eating properly and whatever needs doing.  Today it was laundry.  Frankie has a clothes basket in her room and it was full so I did hers and mine today. 

And it was a beautiful day out there.  The temp got up to 56 and the sun was shining!

Now, I'm heading for the haystack a tad early and I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

I'm checking in to say "good night" dear friends as well.... Sweet dreams & God Bless. Our current temp is 56° with the low to be 46°. This is NOT Christmas weather! I am not in the mood and not ready and can't believe Christmas in just over a week away. Have not mailed a single card and must finish that last dog portrait so no time to rest yet.

Lloyd, I've given all 3 of my kids lectures today about "taking it easy". They are hard workers and don't stop to think what they are doing to their bodies stressing & working NOW is going to affect they older years. None of us relized that and we are paying the price, aren't we? 

I was sound asleep this morning and even dreaming at 7:00am when I got one of those robo calls. I was SO angry, what good does it do for people to make those calls, surely nobody would buy anything from them. I answer the phone even when it doesn't say who it is. I don't know any of family or friends cell phone numbers. Bedtime, I woke up about 2:30 & didn't get out of bed until 5:00, fed cats... didn't get up again until that phone call. I finally lay down for a nap about 4:30 & youngest son called to ask if he could come by tonight instead of tomorrow night. I'm happy to see them when ever they have time! But, no nap & I am breathing hard like half asleep~~  EDIT: just checked & the temp now at 10:20 pm is 60 degrees!
