Saturday, March 31, 2012

Just wanted to say that my daughter Joy has been doing great and not drinking now for about 2 weeks. Talked to her today and she sounds good.
Here are a couple fuzzy pics of Decorah baby eagles. Finally saw 3rd one today

And now my great grand daughter Abigail who is quite a ham now and walking all over place,

With her grammy my daughter Rebekah and then my grand daughters Felicia and Kayla

New keyboard works great.
Hope you are having a good weekend

  Hi Eleni........
It looks like Felicia really likes to work with Abigail's hair. It always looks so cute and combed into different styles. I wish that Elizabeth would let me style her hair, but she has NEVER wanted ANYONE to comb her hair. I don't know if she has a sensitive scalp or what. I waited so many years for a little girl and now I have one that doesn't want her hair touched!!!!!!
Loved the Eagle pictures.
Have a good Sunday.

A Day of Good Intentions

Friday, March 30, 2012

Good intentions are a lot like talks cheap. Actions speak louder.
So I really got nothing done. I did get the new remote to swap over to dvd but no menu for recording or playing what is recorded. The dvd recorder in here works good back there so I will leave well enough alone. The tv remote was shot back there and this new one works good. So no big deal to take dvd remote back there if I want to record there. I use this one the most anyway.
Bill bowled his 2nd 900 game today. He bowls in a charity game today.
Thats about it. Hope you had a good day

  Hi Eleni........
First of all.......WAY TO GO BILL!!!!! I hope that he continues to do well in the Tournament.
I managed to get a few things done today, but I am so tired. I have been having pain in my left hip and there is only one position that I can fall asleep in and if I move at all in my sleep, I wake up. By morning I don't feel rested at all. I sure hope this goes away soon!!!!!

    You know me I can talk the talk but do I walk the walk?? I know what and how to do it and freely tell others about SP and yet I don't always use that same advice on myself--really strange even to me. Bill is a fantastic Bowler. All my Aunts and Uncles used to be on Bowling Teams and they all loved it. I am terrible at Bowling and very rarely do I even get a Strike. Did you use to Bowl? You must be so proud of him. Take care of yourself and better days are ahead for you.

Made It To Wal-Mart

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Got up early today. Was dressed and ready to go out the door by 11. Thats great for me.
We went to Bob Evans for breakfast/lunch. Yes it was good.
Then To Wal-Mart. I had some money from Christmas that I never used. I haven't been out much lately.
We needed a new remote for back room. I hate setting those stupid things up.I can turn TV on and change stations.I can turn dvd on and change stations.But can't get menu to work so that I can program something to record. I will mess with it more tomorrow.
I also got a new cordless keyboard for computer in back room. The one I had was crap. New one is so much better.
well nothing new. I am watching The Help. Very close to the book.
Good night my friends

  Hi Eleni........
I have read The Help and then I went to the movie twice. It was one of my favorite books and the movie followed it so well that it turned out to be one of my favorite movies too. The acting was flawless. I would have given all 3 nominees an Oscar.
I am glad to read that you made the trip to Walmart. I was there yesterday and bought material to make new curtains for one of our bedrooms. Ken painted it last week and I just wasn't happy with the old curtains with the new paint color.
Have a great weekend.......I plan to spend most of mine in the gardens.

    Sounds like a busy day. We could never get those remotes to work either. Since we have U-Verse we can call and get a new remote any time.

I want to read "The Help" before I see the movie. All my friends said it was a great read.

I hope you slept well.

    I didn't feel like going out today, but it is the first anniversary of my mother's passing and I wanted to put some flowers on her grave. So off I went. So we both went out today.

The Help was a good movie and I actually got some things cleared up from the movie that I didn't undertand fully in the book. I enjoyed them both.

Brianna Came Today

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Brianna came to do some chores and spend some time with me. She asked if we could bake something thing. I had seen a recipe for muffins made with spice cake and can pumpkin so I let her do that. They were good and so easy to make.Dump box of cake mix and mix in can of pumpkin and mix. Spray the pans with pam so nothing stuck.They smelled so good. You could add some icing if you wanted but we ate them plain.

The first pic is my little orchid yesterday and 2nd today with third bloom. If you look on botton right of 1st you can see some small buds room another plant

This guy was checking out the neighborhood for his supper.
I was sad to see Martina get off DWTS. She wasn't real good but would have been fun to see more of her.Watched 19 kids and it was so sad as she lost baby 20.
Ok Hope you had a good day
My son and his 2 boys. Haircuts needed

  Hi Eleni.......
I wondered where that Pumpkin-Spice Cake Muffin smell was coming from!!!!! I love pumpkin in just about anything. I went to a friend's home for lunch today and she made Sweet Potato Soup. It was delicious!!!
Those orchids are absolutely perfect and beautiful. You definitely have the touch. I wish that you could come to my house and bless mine.
Your grandchildren are beautiful!!! You and Brianna are so lucky to have each other. I hope that Elizabeth and I remain close when she is Brianna's age.
Have a good evening.

    Nice pictures Eleni!
Muffins look scrumptious, I love anything pumpkin!
Beautiful orchards and the bird . . . we've had a hawk around here lately and we cannot let our 3 1/2 lb dog go out back by herself, so tiny that the bird could pick her up and fly away with her! Scary!
I'm with you about haircuts being needed, lol. Seems a lot of young ones these days like the long, scraggly look, it's a fad more than anything Eleni.
Have a good day!

    Now I know what Brianna made! I love pumpkin. Frosting would've been tummy too, but too many calories. I have a huge sweet tooth lately.

Your boys sure do need hair cuts. emoticon. Lots of makes have long hair now. Reminds me of my high school days. Tyler is big!!

Just Quick hello

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Got up late again. Woke up at 4 and got up for awhile and then went back to bed.
Didn't get much done but I never do. I still have a few med bags to finish up tonight and then put them all together.
Leg is fine today.
I did try to clean the little pans under my stove eyes. I was going to wrap them in foil but just cleaned them. No body sees it but me.
I am liking DWTS much better this year. I don't have one favorite yet.
I am so proud of Martina for doing show.She can't win but I would like to see her a few more times.
Well I need to finish my meds.
Here is a tired Abigail after a day at the beach

Oh I almost forgot. I just checked the eagles and one has hatched.You can see its furry little head pop up next to 2 eggs left

  Hi Eleni.......
Your Team Photo is BEAUTIFUL!!!
Abigail is like Elizabeth.........GO full throttle and then collapse!!!!! Don't you wish that we could sleep that sound???
I don't think that Martina was too sad to leave last night. I think that she realized that she was way out of her element. She is an excellent athlete and tennis player, but dancing is a whole new ballgame and not everyone can do it.
