Saturday, April 06, 2013

Yesterday was nice, today we have a fire in the fireplace! First one in over twenty years, but I wanted to burn a creosote log.. want to clean eh chimney this spring.
I was up and at 'em early and got laundry, dishwasher and bills done.. Started fire and showered, watched the first ever Miss Marple movie,, actually stayed awake for it!!
Sorting coupons, going to start in on the hand weights and bands.. still have floor washing and carpet sweeping to do.. great cardio,,
not exactly pioneer woman stuff, but I do make my own soap occasionally, goats milk and glycerin..

DD just brought me a hot cuppa.. love it!

    I love Miss Marple as well. It is still quite cool here as well. We are expecting more snow tomorrow. Hope you're having a great weekend.

SO glad it is Friday

Friday, April 05, 2013

Today was even busier at work than yesterday, stayed longer again, BUt could not get out fast enough when they said to leave..
DD and I walked the Tobico marsh, state park and it was cold, There were white caps on lake Huron, but he sun was shining in that blue water..
We took pics of the swans, birds, geese and ducks. It is way too early to see any flora or fauna.. temp is 34 but no snow and the sun is out with fluffy clouds.
We left there, made a call, wanted to take Karen her birthday gift, but she was not home so we filled my gas tank and stopped at dad's house to get mail, then went to Karen's house.. SHe leaves work at 2pm, but for some strange reason she did not answer her phone, so we waited on her porch, soaking up some rays, finally left her another message and left her gift on her porch. Back home to possibly relax. Stacking bills and tuning out the workaday world for a few hours...

    It is so nice to walk in natural surroundings, it usually invigorates me.

You have some lovely views on your inland ocean. I am glad you and DD had a nice time together. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds good.

I'd like to see Lake Huron and Lake Superior. I may go paddle in them a little this summer.

Very busy again at work today, I again stayed later to help a couple people out. It is kind of nice to come home and not have a phone call or bill or some responsibility. I know the stream of bills are wending their way to my mailbox, but a couple days a month with no cares is sheer bliss!

I got two hours of cardio in today ove rthe course fo teh morning!! GOing to try some more Nicole things on eh bands tonight..

Worked later today, actually came home and had to do nothing!! DD had laundry and bed stripping finished, I took my usual spot asleep on the keyboard,,wonder if they make padded ones??????

It is so cold her I cannot get warm,, in the 20's... usually when I get cold, it is my diabetes telling me it is time to eat something,, i also told DD to stop teh flannel sheets and use regular ones,,
methinks it was abit hasty.. but who knew I would still need them in APril? It snowed again this morning!

    We too are in the icebox but happily no snow. The furnace ran most of the night we are sure it runs more now the snow is off the roof. It has to get warmer than this and the wind just HURTS Pat in Maine. emoticon

Over the river and through the woods..

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Today was more errand running, found a new invalid ring for DD at pharmacy, picked up moms mail, into post office to mail packages andbills, back home and fell asleep on keyboard for a couple hours.. no wonder it takes me all day after work to do my thing online, most of it is in my dreams..
chugging water to keep my 10 cup intake.

    Good on the water - and with all that activity, you need it... Falling asleep on the keyboard or not, you get more done in a day than most, thinks me. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Linda: I wish I had your gumption!
