Good Morning, Afternoon, Whatever!  AMY told me a little bit ago that we are back!  HOORAY!!  I was so confused because I could go anywhere else I wanted to but not here and now....  HERE I AM!

First, PATRICIA, you REALLY AND TRULY don't understand the weather in Central Pennsylvania!  When March arrives it has no right to claim a season.  It should have one all it's own and it could be called "Anything Goes".  You could crawl in bed one night when it's too warm to use a blanket and you could wake up the next morning with it so cold out there you'reI looking for another pair of wool socks, some double knit long pants and three or four sweaters!  And by mid afternoon on that day you might wonder where you put your shorts!  There's just no telling what the weather will be from one hour to the next.  Just like today...When I got out of bed this morning it was 24º and right now it's hit a high of 51º.  This week they are predicting lows in the 20s and highs in the 60s.  Jack Frost and Mama Spring just keep sparring all the way through the month.  Once when I was little and I came downstairs shivering in the morning, my Dad said, "Just wait a few minutes1"

I finished up my loaf of Irish Soda Bread with my lunch this morning and on the day itself I had some of the Irish Colcannon Soup that my Irish friend at church gave me.  There were leprechauns all over the place.

I also wish I could share the Geese with you!  We have so many of them our our pond.  This pond was put in about 5 years after I moved here and it didn't take the geese long to find it!  Now, whenever I stick my head out the door, I hear them.  And if Cooper and I take a walk, I could see as many 10 V's go overhead while we are out for about 45 minutes.  I "sortof" kept track the other day when we were walking.  We took 3 walks at three different times of the day.  I heard geese every time but I saw at least 20 V's pass over...maybe more!  And the other day when Cathy was bringing me home from my Dr. Appt. we had to pass between the high school and the pond.  Since the high school was dismissing cars had to slow to 15 miles an hour.  When we saw the pond across the road I was shocked!  There were at least 200 geese on the pond!  They use the pond for night resting and the river about a mile away for hunting food!  I really love it when I get to see them resting!  I wish I could share!  It's absolutely amazing!  It makes my day when I see them!

Now I have to think about some supper!  I finished off the last I made and it's time to get going.  Cooper will be asking for his pretty soon, too.  I hope you all have a good "rest of the day".  Better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Jane, does Cooper pay any attention to the geese? I can't wait till they fly here and land on the lakes...also love it when the loons come back to the lakes.

Day is winding down cinnamons buns are good, put some in the hidley hole for you to enjoy with a glass of milk.

Have all that is to be taken to the city tomorrow ready and just need to load it in the vehicle. Phone calls made to meet up with friends and family . Now to rest...best time of the day.

Good afternoon; I've been at it again; I took four 33 gal. garbage bags to the donations table emptied them, folded clothes, sheets, and blankets, and arranged shoes, boots, and slippers in between. I had three backpacks, three wallets, and nine purses to give away. What disturbed me was that four of those purses were clones... they were that interchangeable.

I also gave away a bag filled with those colorful waxed paper grocery shopping bags and three suede or leather totes. None of these were new, and I don't know why I kept them or kept getting them! I did keep one large backpack, two purses, and two black leather totes. In our morning catchups, I've said they have permission to slap my hand if I attempt to buy any more on our shopping trips.

Jane, you're right in that I know nothing about Pennsylvania. I must have been at least through it, or perhaps not on our way driving to and from Missouri and Kansas. Most of my time stateside was spent in the northwest, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Iowa, Minnesota, and California; west, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, and Ohio, West Virginia, and Virginia;  or the south, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Florida. I'm unfamiliar with the east coast or the eastern part of the midwest. I was the passenger and not the driver or navigator.

Unlike the other three temperature and geological Alaskan regions, in my part of Alaska, January, and February are generally frigid with no snow. In the last few years, they've forgotten that. March has always been warmer, with more humidity and our snowiest month. Not this year, but Mother Nature has been on a rampage! Typically, a word that no longer means much...all the snow is gone by Easter, the planting by Memorial Day, and birds begin returning in late April and May.

JaneS

Patricia, I'd guess you probably know as much about Pennsylvania as I know about Alaska!  That's the one state in the Union that I haven't been able to manage to visit.  Some of the others I've been a regular visitor over the years but Alaska is my one and only not able to manage a visit!  And it does look so enticing!

Now I'm off to bed!  I took a short nap after Frankie picked up Cooper at about 8:15.  Just couldn't keep my eyes open and they didn't ask me if I wanted to see the rest of the show I was watching.  Now I'm heading for the haystack.  I don't have to be up early...just ready to head for Davy's when Cathy is ready to go.  I only need a few things but I want to go myself.

AMY, have a safe trip tomorrow!

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  God bless and keep you!

Good morning..

We are off and running to the city today. We have many stops dropping off items and picking up items. Meeting up with Bri to try out the new to us fish and chip store for lunch.

Jane, thank you. Looks like weather is co-operating, dry roads and warmer temp today.

Patricia, nice to be able to declutter and pass items on to those that can use them.

Where is Jenny? Lloyd also??

Better get going ,need to pack the vehicle yet.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

This is going to be a quick "Good Morning Everyfriend"  Cathy just texted that she's almost ready to head out for Davy's.  I thought if she was still beeling bad, she might not go.  But she did her COVID test again this morning and it's negative.  So I guess it's just a cold!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning; the dump trucks and graders are outside doing their thing, but it's lovely not to be awakened by them after midnight. That little snow we've received this winter is being carted off to huge piles and left to melt, a sign of early spring.

Amy, my declutter bug didn't stop there. I'm now eyeing my kitchen storage, and there's that deep cupboard over the refrigerator where appliances go to hide—and revamping,  those empty shelves in the bedroom. I have two hallway closets that I want to rearrange. Then moving into the living room, there's my desk area and a six-foot shelf unit.

Alan and Dora have settled in assisted living. It's not what they wanted nor how they see themselves, but it is what it is, and they're pragmatic. The only one who has not moved into town is Claire, who stayed with me last summer during the fires.

We had a grand day here, weather was perfect. On the way to the city  I noticed movement on the left side of the woods, a deer had crossed the road and made it safely  over. When you see one, is it the first or the last and it turned out this was the first and the second one was on the shoulder beside us, thankfully it stayed put till we got by. A truck was coming in the opposite direction and I flashed my lights at him, I noticed he did brake and  by that time the doe was out on the highway and the driver took to the other side of the road. All was well :) We travelled on only to meet another one crossing the road and she also made it to the other side.  We saw our first robin when we were in the city!! Met up with Bri and we enjoyed a fish dinner at a new to us restaurant.

Picked up our supplies and came home. Now to put our feet up and rest.

Amy, that's a big fear going either direction out of Wichita, some spots we know where to expect deer but never which way they will dart. Fish & chips sounds SO good!

Had a crazy night & day here with me looking at the clock wrong & starting my day at 1:00 am instead of the 7:00 it was supposed to be but had already swallowed the pill so went on with the to-do as directed. Then I got back up at the right time, didn't take another pill but did the vitals again & later had a call from the center in Alabama that gets the info to pass on to the people here. Kinda like Lloyd does, except his goes to the local VA, I think. Anyway, both readings were exactly what they wanted to see so got a pat on the head & then it was time for the day to start.

Got another problem, the e-mail I use in here (tisieos@*****) isn't working. Tried every which way to get in & finally a new password that didn't work so I will have to come up with a whole new e-mail address & will figure that one out when the head operates better. I really need some fast/junk food to clear my head.  ::) Think I will use gmail, have a shopping account with that but will create a new for my Friends!  :smitten:  :thumbup:

SHIRLEY, let me know the email too.  I'm going to be trying to reach you in May or June!

Right now, I'm off to the haystack.  I'm really beat and ready for some zzzzs and Cooper will be here early tomorrow and I'm going out for lunch.  Today I made a batch of Salmon patties and some of my canned potatoes and a fried veggie.  Now I have a couple of meals ahead.  I also made a batch of "Jim's Egg Thingys" so I can freeze some to take with me to my sister's when I go there for a visit the end of this month.

Nice to "see" you home safe, AMY!  I'm glad you enjoyed your visit with Bri!  Sounds like the deer are "up and attem" in your area!

Today, I went out and I didn't hear a single goose and didn't see a single V!  It looks and sounds like they've moved on to their next stop on the trip north.  It's kind of sad!

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  God Bless!

Good Morning to ME and anyone else who shows!  I have to go get dressed and take Cooper for a walk and then get myself ready for pickup for my outing with my former workers!

Good morning...

This day may bring us rain later on, hope it takes away some snow!
Many little jobs to do today after we get home from town, need to pick up meds and pay a bill. Then home to cook up hamburg for the dogs and freeze it and cut up two packages of fat  give out to the crows.

Shirley, the fish was perfect,light cripy batter and they cooked the wiggle out of it. Fries had a light dusting of ?? spice making them also very tasty. 

Jane, enjoy your time out with your friends.


Patricia, they are calling for rain but said we (up north) could get a mixture of rain and or snow.

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good morning, I'm up, everyone is clean, fed, and caffeinated, and I had my morning text, call, and email session. Yesterday I finished decluttering the kitchen, first hallway closet, bedroom dressers, and shelving.

On my way to the first floor with donations, I passed by my floor's common room and saw a backpack and a small picture frame I had donated downstairs yesterday. So, I went in, added that to my stash, and put it all on the first-floor donation table.

Today, I'm contemplating my office side of the living room and possibly moving my small library to the now empty bedroom shelves, leaving only my shelf of cookbooks. My past two weeks remind me of the spring cleaning my mother engrained in us as children.

 Amy, our low was plus 19, and we're forecast to be plus 41 today with partly sunny skies.

Lloyd hasn't posted since March 17th, although he or someone is looking in each day. Has someone tried contacting him?

Amy

Patricia, it is 45° F here now and a nice day. On the way home I saw 3 Trumperter Swans winging their way north..

Hello Everyfriend!  Today was a very busy day.  My friend Shirley who picked me up for lunch today, was stopping at WM on her way home and I stopped with her.  I got some things I've been thinking about and the only food I got was some Easter Candy for the kids. 

When I got home, Cooper was ready for a walk so we did that and then he played in the yard while I filled the bird feeder.  After he left, I dealt with the stuff I bought and it's all put away.  After I had my supper, I took a nap while Mannix tried to get into my brain.  It didn't work!

It was a beautiful day here!  The temperature made it to 63º and is still50!  Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the mid 60s again but showers off and on!  I might not make it in here in the morning.  I have a dr. appt. at 9 and Cooper arrives a bit before 7 and will need breakfast and a walk before I can get ready for the dr. 

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow...God bless!

Amy, we weren't too far behind with plus 43. Right now, we're at plus 38 at half past 7 pm

Jane, I'm not talking to you with your 63 degrees! :( 

Amy

Good morning...

Raining now and will most of the day.Work around home today,nothing pressing  that needs done.

Our temp is at 30°and I hope it goes up if not it will be a skating rink outside. This rain will help the snow go and we do have lots of it still.

Rick, I sent an email to Lloyd and the link to come in here.

Jane, you did have a busy day but I bet it was also a fun day with your friends .

Patricia, last nights supper was stuffed pork tenerlin with brussels sprouts, carrot and parsnips with raspberries and cream for dessert.Only an abundance of raspberries left as I bought 6 containers of them. Now need to come up with something for tonights supper.

Better get going..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  This is going to be a quickie because I'm waiting for Cathy to pick me up for the Dr. Appt.

Cooper has arrived.  He's had his breakfast and took a walk!  And I'm all ready to go.  The temp is already up to 48º and heading for a high of 64! (Sorry Patricia!  It's March in PA!)

Guess it's time to catch up in here!  I've been reading posts every day but our weather has bounced from below freezing to 80+º - and back again - sometimes within 24 hours. This has resulted in very gloomy days with either drizzle or high winds and is not kind to my "squeaks and creaks". So I just haven't had the energy to think of things to say.

One of our weather gurus went into a long explanation of the reason for the California weather issues (which have been - and will be - crossing Oklahoma).  He said it's because La Nina ( "the periodic cooling of ocean surface temperatures in the central and east-central equatorial Pacific" - according to Google  ;)) is over and El Nino hasn't started yet - so we're in a "neutral" time period. And that's causing all the storms.  ::)  The one that caused the tornado in L.A. is due here later today.

Shirley, my medical blood work seems to go to a testing lab in Kansas!  Sir Carson's "Significant Other" worked at a local lab that does testing for doctors. She was in charge of keeping up with incoming reports and sending results out to doctors, etc. She recently moved to be with Carson in Texas and is now working in a similar lab there. 

My current life is basically the necessary Domestic Duties, reading e-books, "maintenance" medical appointments and occasional family visits. No "socializing" activities.  Ho Hum.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Good late morning; I slept in after a hard night, only awakening when my phone rang for the morning email, text, and call check-in. Then I puttered around getting everyone fed, washed, and, in my case, caffeinated.

Nothing new here to report as I have only to borrow Callie's term, domestic duties to perform. Our weather is a bit cooler, but signs of melt are everywhere.

Callie, your weather sounds similar to what Jane tells me about Pennsylvania. I also see, Jane, that my assumptions about your state's location only proved that old adage when I looked at a map earlier.

Amy, your dinner sounded terrific...I wasn't invited?

I roasted my last whole chicken yesterday and had some with sweet potatoes and cornbread muffins. Not a very fancy meal, but filling.

Amy

Patricia, your dinner sounds delicious also.....love cornbread muffins!! Guess our invites got lost in the mail. :)

In case I don't get back, been a busy day trying to get the meds cut down so I don't do a melt down like yesterday. I just didn't take them today & all reading better than yesterday. The "Home Health Care" provided by my insurance & Medicare has been over the top in attentive.

Turned out my oxygen had cut off sometime durning the night & reading of mid 80s this morning.  No warning it wasn't working but did feel "funny".... not haha.  Call to the oxygen people but they didn't seem too concerned since I have a portable.  Ran the battery out on it but son broke away from HIS jobs to bail me out.  New 50' hose in the bag also had a kink so he put on the original that had been replaced in Feb.... actually dropped the nose piece in a glass of water to make sure if tank or hose.  Battery pack won't charge when in use so getting warnings about it being out & won't charge while on, that's silly since they include a car battery pack when driving. Anyway, oxygen man delivered 3 more hoses after Andy was gone.... & Andy had gone through the new ones from before & both straight from the bag had kinks that wouldn't let air thru.....   I do feel sorry for the people that don't have someone to bail them out when all goes wrong!  Guy from oxygen says "it happens & no way to know"..... and I plan to put jammies on right now in case I don't wake up until the "wee" hours.  (Pun intended.)  Didn't take any pills today so may get some decent sleep.

I will try to get organized tomorrow & open a new e-mail with gmail.... but since I don't have any (or many) phone numbers on a Wordpad, can't do anything but WILL CALL FOR ADDRESSES, yep, lost the whole she-bang when tisieos went belly up. BUT got to set up that account inbetween all the medical phone calls. So we will see what tomorrow brings. Good night (early), sweet dreams and God Bless. Love ya'll.  Tisie/Shirley

Amy

Good morning..

We may see some sun today but not counting on it.

We have our taxes done and will go sign the papers and they will send them off electronically, next we had a propane fill up yesterday and will go pay that bill. Then home to do the domestic duties..oh fun!!

Shirley, hope you can get your oxegen all figured out so you can get back to feeling tickety boo. I understood your pun as Babe thought she should go out at 3:30am.

Patricia, I need to start from scratch for supper tonight. What are "we" having??

Best get going...seems the day moves faster than I at times.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I didn't get in here last night.  Frankie spent the night and we made supper together, ate it together, cleaned up together and laughed and talked until I was so sleepy I just headed for the haystack!  And I had a little bedfellow all night!  I do feel rested this morning and I have the laundry started.

The weather is in the mids(40 to 53) today an drizzles!  I can handle that!

CALLIE, it was nice to come in here and "see" you!  Come back often!

SHIRLEY, when we were kids and we'd say we felt "funny", my grandmother would always ask, "Do you feel funny peculiar or funny haha?"  I passed it on to my kids and I noticed they passed it on to their kids!

The washer just stopped.  I better go get the towels in the dryer or everything will be wet around here inside AND out!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!
