Saturday, in the dark,,,

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Went to bed to relax watching tv, woke up 8 hours later, sitting up, freezing cold(we turn our thermostat down to 54 at night). Holy Wah!!!!!!
I was sitting ON my new glasses!! How the heck did they get underneath a huge body that is sound asleep?
I cannot believe I slept for 8 solid hours!! I have not done that since last August when I was lazily drowsing in my cabin on Lake Superior!!! IT was a very rough week....

Snow way I'm shoveling THIS stuff!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Snow/rain/snow/sleet, now rain again,, that is all just this morning.. no shoveling it for me,, working extra hours thsi week and will not shovel snow.. or rain,, slurpee mix..
to answer Pat, Gas prices here are now $3.84/gal for unleaded. I hope they go down by summertime,, but I am excited about possibly getting a garden again..

the pool is 24 foot round and 7 1'2 feet deep, so I will need to order a lot of fill dirt,, I had the guys put the dirt around the edges of my fences when they installed the pool, so now I have to pay for black dirt to refill that big hole. Maybe now I can get my chainsaw out and cut that huge maple tree down after the pool is gone.

Please go to my sparkpage photo gallery to see the pool pics.. the pic with a snow path is where the thousands of gallons of water blew out onto the snow and drained back to my back fence.

    Our prices for gas are the same. I keep hearing that gas will be over $4.00 a gal by summer. Sure hoping it goes down instead. Going to check out the pictures.

So sorry about your pool.

WInter is getting old..

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Okay, time to warp speed this season to get on to spring. The sunless, warmthless, wet, unable-to-go-outdoors in less than sixty five-pounds-of-clothes days are really not fun anymore...
when 30 degrees starts to look like a beach day, it is time to fast-forward the weather...

In Michigan, when the temps gets up to 45, we put the tops down on our convertibles, wear sandals, shorts and short sleeves!! I am NOT kidding!! In Michigan, teh temps waver back and forth between -14 and 32 degreesF!! In one day!!
When I am able to retire, I will be the first person to stand in front of that proverbial slingshot to Florida!!!!!
If you do not believe me, you can ask my DD in sparks, in my car trunk, I carry a bag with my swimsuit, beach towel, ice scraper, car lock de-icer, and sunscreen ALL YEAR ROUND!

    Spring is just around the corner...maybe the bend. Sure can't wait for it to come in PA!!! Where did that pesky groundhog go??!!!
I used to wear my shorts year round...but the cold this year just didn't let me and we have had a very mild winter. Must be iron poor blood or something.
Have a great week!!!

    Oh I believe you alright.

It's winter here now, too. Very low 30's and freezing rain supposed to snow any time now.

    Have you been there?
We took a look and left way too many people for us. I still wish i could find some place warmer that looks like Maine, feels like Maine and has trees like Maine. Till then i know we will always be here. We are retired and I think we can find some amazing retirements homes here. I have been amazed that people RETIRE to Maine but they do.
Stay warm, we are waiting for another 6 -8 inches tonight. DH says we are in the no-man's zone weather guys rarely get it right.
HUGS LINDA Pat in MAINE emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Pickie, you're too funny. But I believe you. I'd wait until the temperature is in the 70s before I put on shorts. I get cold real easily.

On a happy note, we change our clocks back to daylight savings time on March 11th and spring begins on March 18th. Hopefully Mother Nature knows about these dates, too!
