Good morning, We're at zero presently with expectations of blowing snow and a windchill of minus forty. Tomorrow will be back in the milder minuses, and Monday will be back in the pluses. The entire week is forecasted back and forth among similar lines.

I'll be  :peepwall: and :sleep: but not :snowball: !

Good night, sweet dreams, God Bless and watch over each of you..... Quiet day around here but ready for bed and hopefully, sound sleep. Not snowing at my house. I really did type a long post today & looked away for a second & when I looked back it was gone!  That's when I threw the snow ball & left!   :-\
Love ya, Tisie/Shirley

On the way to the haystack!  I'm tired right down to my shoestrings.  And you all know I don't have any shoestrings so I don't really know where it's going to stop.  We're off to bed and hopefully will get rested up so we can do stuff tomorrow.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow and may God bless us, every one!

Good morning...

The weather folks have been saying for  3 days now and although we did get a wee snack of it,nothing like they were prediciting. 

A day of rest here..will go shock my sewing room  maybe. We do have to take ashes and garbage away.

Jane, please keep that snow down there..we have enough ,thank you.

Shirley, Jane will be getting more snow ,maybe she will share with you so you can make more snowballs or a snow fort! I like  quiet days, can handle them quite well.

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

I have been looking and studding how to properly clean and care for the room humidefyer. I have looked at servial defferant verisons. seams to be the best cleaner for them is plain white vinigear. I may under take that chore this after noon so we can rest easer tonight. we use onley distiled watter in ourse. But still it gets cloged up. Makes me wounder how good the process of makeing the distilleed watter is.well I am going to go turn on Live the preacher's ceriman. see you all later today.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Christy, Cooper and I are up and attem!  Cooper and I went for a productive walk and Christy and I made English Muffins with eggs for breakfast.  We've had our coffee and I think right now, she's on her morning phone talk with her hubby in Maryland! 

We're going to try to do a meeting for lunch with my son...Christy's twin brother.  Sunday is the only day he has off since he has an appliance store in town. 

The rest of the day is open for "Whatever strikes our fancy".  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

:nanadance:  :nanadance:  :nanadance: I saw the eagle!! He was perched in a tree near us, I never get tired of looking for him/her. Four cans of ashes were taken away so we are good for while. We had rain,a wee bit o snow and now just dull out.

I picked up a "dog lifter" for Babe but the way it goes on it will put pressure on girlies cancer..so it goes back. Kyle has built a ramp that hooks onto the side door of the van that makes it easier for her to get in. Getting older is not for sissies, including  dogs. Taking it one day at a time..

Good morning! It's minus 17 and sunny now, but yesterday afternoon until midnight, we had 2.4 inches of snow. Unfortunately, while it's supposed to warm again next week, no other snow is forecast.

Alan and Dora are both doing somewhat better; however, it will be slow with this flu and their ages. Alan has pneumonia, but it's not a severe case.

Jane, I know with Christy visiting, you will be so happy with her and Cooper!

Amy, my mother, had a room with three sewing machines and her loom. We donated a ton of fabric to a group that sewed for children and those in need. Then sold two machines and donated the older Singer from the second product assembly group, plus her loom, to the Pioneers' museum.  Everything went to her care; even with insurance, it was not enough.

Amy

Good morning...

We got the snow, not a lot but it does have to be dealt with. Will see what does and doesn't get done inside after the dance.

Patricia, when I was working my friend and I would hit the fabric sales and we did that quite often. :) So I do have a wee bit of a stash plus my machines..each one has a purpose. Your Mom's fabric went to a good cause .

Better get my dancin duds on..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Just a quick Good Morning Everyfriend!  Christy is in the shower and then she's going to her long-time friend's new house to help her get something done.  She has trimmed my hair and saved me a trip to the "haircuttery".

After she leaves, I'm jumping in the shower and getting other clothes on for the day!  We're going to Cathy's for supper today!  And I'm washing some bathroom and kitchen rugs.  While I took the one in the bathroom out to shake out the hairs, Christy swept up and her sweeping took her down the hall and into the kitchen.  So maybe after she leaves I'll got out the swiffer and wash up a couple areas.  The kitchen in in dire need and I'm sure the bathroom and hall can take it!

I've had breakfast, took Cooper for his morning walk andI'm having my second cup of coffee while Christy is in the shower!

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

Good morning all.  40ish, wet, and gloomy here. Need a light on again today.
Coffee and breakfast are done so have to find something to keep me busy for a while. Too early for a nap.

Good morning, everyone; I've been up later and then sleeping in. Everyone is doing fine on the text, email, and phone side of things, but we're all missing Dora and Alan. We're told they're slowly improving, but many of us believe that's medical jargon for who knows.

Farrah makes sure I'm up at her breakfast time, and we both had showers afterward so I can have my coffee and a visit here.  My life is so full these cold days...It's hard to find time to fit all the joy in.  ::)

My day was not of dance....since there was a mist falling we decided to leave well enough alone. Had I taken the snow away it would have turned into a skating rink and that is not really needed in the driveway. Wood brought in and waltz with the vacuum cleaner chasing dust kangaroos and now bread on the rise. Will go fold laundry in a few minutes. All these fun chores , it is really hard to contain the excitement :))

I did manage to get a vet appointment  for Babe on Wed....sure hope the storm stays away..

Amy, I didn't realize Babe was having such health issues...  I am so sorry, they really are our babies even if they don't look like us!  We are being warned again that bad weather is on the way, think it's been promised so much nobody believes.

Jane, I've cut my own hair since at least 8th grade, let it grow out a few times for special reasons but always so thick & coarse it had a life of it's own. Love having the kids around but takes days of R&R after they leave to get over the rush-rush.

Farrah really gets a shower, Patricia?  I'd love to clean up Tiger but think she'd pack her bags & leave me. She is between 14-15 years old, her mother weaned her in our back yard so not sure how old when we first saw them.  She doesn't go out much these days, just sits in the pool area to watch her world. All the years of rolling in the dirt she didn't sleep on my bed but I would love to clean her up. Do you use a special cat shampoo? 

Rick, been dark & dreary quite a bit here so the lights everyone has outside that should re-charge during the day do not stay on long after dark. I have lots of candles if the power goes out, always stock up after Christmas when they are half price or less, who cares if they are red or green in the dark!  ;)

Lloyd, I also carry a debit card & have been letting my daughter pay the utility bills for me before SHE takes over the house. One utility charges extra if using a debit card so the bank advised using the other method/ don't remember the term (routing number?). Have a checking account with another bank but have never used it so trying to keep things as simple as possible.  At least I don't have to write the checks & put postage on. She is starting to feel like this is "home", not where the kids grew up but we moved in here in Sept.1988. I think we have paper work all done except for selling the motorhome & I have not advertised that yet. My head keeps thinking we need "one more trip".  :-\

So here we are, another week of winter. Daughter got home to flowers popping out of the ground! Have a new bird at the feeder so think it may have lost it's way during the migration. If I can get a photo of it thru the window I'll send to Bubble. That window needs to be cleaned inside & out, OUT may not get it but I'll work on IN tomorrow. I may need another nap before bedtime!

Shirley, I apologize for not being clear. Farrah managed her own bath. However, in the past, with cats particularly smelly or dirty, I have used special pet wipes by Petkin; they make both body and ear wipes. Ingredients are pure witch hazel, aloe vera gel, chlorhexidine Gluconate, and botanical extracts.

There are various pet shampoos on the market and in veterinary offices. A fellow long-term foster parent massages his cats, and they love it, purring and flopping to get their treat!

Chlorhexidine gluconate for humans is a germicidal mouthwash that reduces bacteria in the mouth. Chlorhexidine gluconate oral rinse is used to treat gingivitis (swelling, redness, bleeding gums). A dentist usually prescribes chlorhexidine gluconate. Chlorhexidine gluconate oral rinse is not for treating all types of gingivitis.

This is an animal version for cats and is used on their coats and not teeth, altho you can buy toothpaste for a cat or dog. Some folks use Johnson's baby shampoo on their pets.

Farrah is used to me handling her. I've been at this for twenty years since November and have special holds for pets, so she accepts it while letting me know it isn't preferred. We've been together since 2016, and she'll be eleven in September, so she knows what battles are and aren't important.

Amy

Good morning..

No new snow overnight but it is coming in the next two days."A Texas low is expected to bring snow to southern Ontario late Wednesday into Thursday," reads the statement. "Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are possible, with locally higher amounts of up to 20 cm."

Environment Canada warns that there will be reduced visibility while driving and rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult.  We are to head north on Wed then south on Thur for appointments but we shall see.

Nothing planned but lots to do here.

Shirley,growing old is no fun for our furkids either. Babe has lots of "bumps" on her but the one growing back of her front leg is a concern. With covid we have only been able to pass our dog over to a vet tech and wait outside for the results but this time I am going in. There are too many questions I want answers for so that has been arranged.Did you picture both Patricia and Farrah with shower caps on? :2funny:

Time to get the day started....

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

well I made a post and the grimlans got it again this sight said I was booted out or somengthing like that. I have been up seince 7;20 am taken my vitials and sent them off to va via sadalight with the device. we are 27º now and over cast. weather guesser is saying partly sunny, but alll I see is overcast no sighn of sun so far this morning. I hope you all have a good day just like you like. see you all later.

Lloyd

Shirley

Haha, Amy, I did picture Farrah going into the shower with Patricia, my son's cats do that now & then with their people slaves.  Our German Shepherd got those bumps all over her during the last few years, vet said "just fatty tissue"... I guess the best we can do for our furbabies is to hope for less pain and see the love in their eyes as we talk to them every day. Hurts the heart watching them suffer, hugs to you.

Patricia, I think I will just let Tiger do her own clean up... been yelling at her to quit doing so much because she coughs up furballs & usually only after eating the dry indoor food that is supposed to have everything they need. I did find a good use for all those political cards mailed out before any election... make great scoopers & just drop the cards & mess in the trash!  Works great on these hardwood floors, but still have to do a lot more scrubbing on the rest of the house white carpet!  I've got more brands of carpet cleaner than I knew they made a few years ago, but the "elbow grease" is missing.

Lloyd, I check my Fitbit first thing in the morning to see if I got any sleep, it does tell me how my oxygen level was all night, heart rate, & other stuff. I've never known anyone that gets as much amazing care from doctors as you do.

Haven't had breakfast yet, am thinking the bears have a good plan, just eat enough to sleep all winter and come out hungry!

JaneS

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Well, here I am alone in my home with just little Cooper for company!  Christy is probably about 2/3 of the way home right now and I missed her before she cleared the driveway!

I've got most of the stuff put back to where it belongs and a load of laundry ready for the washer.  I still didn't get the swiffer out and do the hall and kitchen but it's on my list.  And it's almost time for my second walk with Cooper.  I'm going to put the laundry in first!

I told you before that Christy trimmed my hair.  This morning, before she left, she trimmed my toenails!  So she has attended to the top and the "way down there" parts of my person! 

I think I might get some reading done later today...maybe not until Cooper goes home with his Mommy around 4:45 but we'll see.  I'm reading a book I borrowed from Christy's husband about the escape of Union prisoners from a Confederate prison in Richmond.  It's really interesting and it's a true account.  There are notes from prisoners that are recovered from their journals.  Unfortunately, it's not large print so it's taking me longer.  I can't stay with the regular print as long as I do with the large.

AMY, we're supposed to get that snow here beginning early tomorrow morning.  It's predicting 8 to 10 inches.  I hope they're wrong and they change their minds before that!

Now, I better get back to work and get something accomplished!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning, its minus three at 7:55 am and snow is here,

FireShot Capture 044 - 99701, Fairbanks, AK winter weather map - Microsoft Weather - www.msn.jpg

I can just see Farrah with a shower cap, I'm picturing yellow butterflies on the cap. Some cats like water, and some don't, depending on the breed or mix. For me, it depends on what they've been into. My worst problem with Farrah is also why all my plants are inaccessible on top of a six-foot shelf with no close launching furniture. Most indoor houseplants are poisonous to cats and or dogs.

My daughter has two cats and numerous indoor plants.  She carefully researches each plant before she considers buying it. They do like to dig in the vases or containers.  Every now and then she finds toothprints in a leaf, but obviously they didn't like the taste or would have eaten the whole thing! They both like to shower with her, and each of them has a weird penchant for "tastes" of human food.  The calico loves spinach and cheese, the other one likes a bit of butter served on a fingertip!

oops, missed the break point for the size, color, etc.

Shirley

Heading to bed early, or plan to.  Still have some dishes to wash (can you believe I hate waiting on the dish washer & haven't used it for so long I'm afraid to use now. Think my daughter will be doing a whole kitchen make over, at least that's why I didn't bother doing a half way job. I just didn't want the mess.  Had the hardwood floor put down right after Cas died & that was not a fun couple weeks!  The crew that installed wanted the wood in the house for a couple weeks before installing, said they wanted it to adjust to the humidity.

No snow on the ground but supposed to hit & miss all night. I do hope we get enough cold weather to kill the bugs, but afraid this might be a year with things that come up too early & freeze back. My surprise lilies didn't bloom this year so they may not come up at all.

Sweet dreams & God Bless. Tomorrow is my daughter's birthday. She was born at a military base in South Ruislip, England in 1956. Seems like yesterday, turned out to be a pretty nice person. :smitten: 

JaneS

I'm heading for the haystack!  I can sleep until I wake up tomorrow.  Frankie doesn't work tomorrow so no Cooper.  Strange day...no Cooper, no Christy and no Cathy.  Of course, there will be SNOW.  And there's supposed to be lots of it!  We shall see!

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