My heavens it is COLD

Monday, February 13, 2012

oh man - 22 windchill and I am so cold here in the house! brrr I have my long johns on under my clothes. We have new windows in this house but the frame between the windows and sill have a slight crack as if it needs painting... and boy the wind is coming in. BRRR. anyway we have to go out and yes our truck has heated seats but they are leather so first it is cold enough to get hemmroids lol then it heats up LOL NO complaining as it has been much colder and we didn't have heated seats before.

So have to go buy a new element for stove, a charm for my bracelet, dad gave me some $ to get one from him, so it will be a daughter one or a star lock one.
Hoping the stove is only the burner, cos I wanted hot cereal ( only every 2nd or 3rd day ) and hubby said making in micro. well could have but made a green smoothie and hot green tea. lol

Now going to get moving so I won't be too cold. Can't be staying on puter at pintrest cos just tooo cold. lol

HUGS all sun is shining and hope all are well!

    Sorry about your cold. We had in the 60's here today. Yesterday it was 49 when I went to church and got into the 50's and rain. Leather seats and not heated as we don't have that much cold weather. Hot soup or chile sound good for a day like that.

    Cold here too but in the teens; nothing like you're having. Would probably feel warm to you! Sunny and clear. Have a great day! Hugs.

    YES It is cold here too -20 without the windchill (-30 with that).
I froze my fingers getting in the car no heated seat here in my 11 yr old nissan and since i have only a 5-10 min ride to work the car was just warming up when arrived at work.
Hope you get your stove working and a hot breakfast would be great.
Have a great cold day.

Went out for supper chose great and had a good time

Sunday, February 12, 2012

Late this afternoon, I put the kettle, with water in it, on the stove to boil for tea. I went up to get some laundry,and heard this very loud noise and hubby jumping up. I thought he had turned the surround sound on the tv. But the burner and kettle didn't like each other. Made a hole in kettle and demolished about 2 inch of the coil. No reason, usually it is cos it boils dry but nope lots of water and sparks, and sparky enough to take tiny pits in the enamel! So hubby said we will get a new element and hope that is it, but we went out for supper this eve. Was an easy wanna go out for supper, sure! LOL
I chose well, left the bun, no dessert. Came home and had greek yogurt unsweetened, with kiwi and 4 strawberries blended up to a sorbet. Not sweet at all, cos usually I buy the yog with some honey but thought nope don't need it, but still was tasty but missed that sweet tang.
SO tomorrow to the store for a part for the stove, hope it works. HUGS and talk tomorrow

Slept poorly last night, but didn't feel as tired as the past 2 mornings when I slept well, go figure. whatever. Today I have hubby and I registered for yoga. When I said I have us both in for yoga, he just stuck his tongue out and sick grinned lol so guess he is going.

Dad called wanting his coffee and bun cos his car was frozen... hmmm see cars on the road, hubby said maybe he doesn't want to drive so said that, or maybe the ice is in his door as it did rain then freeze.

NOt a lot going on, maybe go get dad coffee - told him later or we may not even be going out, he has coffee just is used to his routine. Well I don't feel like going and have yet to drive the truck so don't think an icy day is the day to start.

Joined that pintrest site, lots of awesome stuff. One thing I will be making this summer, a coffee table made with 2 pallets - we have 2 and only will need the wood to put between them. it is neat, haven't a clue yet how to attach them to show you but anyway. lol it is for outdoors on the deck. neat, free ( as I have them) and won't rot quickly anyway.

Sister inlaw and hubby are comign for supper tomorrow so have to tidy up today and get a bit done so tomorrow we can do renos and stuff. after all it isn't the weekend ! LOL hubby didn't stay upset, for those that commented on hubby- I just did my own thing and wasn't long before all was fine. Just it didn't even have to happen Think of your words before you say them but then I too can learn from that.

Guess better go and do a bit of exercise, and do a load of towels. be back later to see what all has gone on with my sparker friends!

    Wow, hubby is going to yoga! Go hubby! I can't wait to hear all about it. The coffee table to outdoors sounds interesting. Hope you have had a very amazing day. I had to work today for 1/2 day and then, I have just been going, and had to make another run to town. Now to do more around the house. ((hugs))

    I am avoiding going out too--mostly cuz it is cold. I think the roads aren't too bad, and I need groceries. I have avoided pintrest too (sp?) I already wate a bunch of time online. Maybe this summer.

Morning sparkers!!! emoticon

Just a smile to start the day and yes I have a dental apt soon! LOL
My dd called to say that her brotherinlaw won a host of awards for his pphotography. He lives in Cape Breton Nova Scotia Canada, but is North America renowned. He teaches classes etc. in CA, FL, TX and also all over Canada. He is asked yearly to go to New York City and to Florida to take pics for special people. He is a tad excentric in his looks and is super hyper but he takes some awesome pics. He has won best wedding album a few times and now is photographer of the year!

I am not promoting this for work, he can do that on his own, but do have 2 or 3 spark friends that are photographers and thought they may like to take alook. Not sure that worked but let me know. lol

So we got new winter tires on the car, were told they were going to be..... hubby researched and researched okay fine, so friday got them. Sat ds says those aren't whatever. Hubby just got off the phone saying this will be the 5th set of tires and one set of rims I have gotten from you, I have sent my son and fil to you.... whats up. so they are giving him a diff. type but we have to pay 80$ more a tire. Geesh. not our fault you gave us a diff name that what we expected

Just read on facebook the saddest news, please say a prayer for a nurse I used to work with. Last year her 21 year old son crashed his car in the ditch and fell out of the car and froze to death. Yesterday her dd was killed in car accident. OMG I am not sure how many kids she has, not that it matters at all, but to lose 2 of your kids like that is so unbelieveable and sad. Reminds me of that girl on biggest loser Amy that lost her hubby, 5 year old and baby all at once. I don't know how you go on.

Well I have a dental apt in 2 hrs, and we have to get the tires changed in half hr. tight sqeeze so they better do it right and then get me to the dentist, good thing they aren't too far. Hubby is still reading about the diff tires. geesh.

Okay gotta scooot!!

    Great photography!!

My best friend from high school got cancer and died at 25. Her brother got cancer too but managed to live and her dad has a severe heart attack in his 40s. I always wondered how they managed to stay sane. They were the nicest people.

    I don't know how people go on, either. They must have a lot of love in their hearts to save themselves for the ones who remain alive.

Thanks sparkers

Saturday, February 04, 2012

Many thanks for the comments regarding dad. Actually he had very little to say, when we said that it was beneficial he just said makes sense. We also told him that ds got a brand new 2012 car his first ever brand new, and was only $20 more than his other car. So he too is pleased. Now dd hubby will want a car as sthey drive an old but no problem van. DD will say NO. lol
Not much more going on, didn't get paint but am going to sand the upper cupboards tomorrow am, and then wash walls either with dd new steam cleaner or good old elbow grease. lol I wish kitchen and bath paint would go on sale!!!!
Best scoot for now, hugs and thanks for the good thoughts, hope you like my valentines day page! LOL
