Wedding day

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Today is my Niece's wedding day here in Central NY. It's COLD, WINDY, a few snowflakes in the air. She is getting married in a gazebo on the village green then there is a reception in the Shriners park.

I got to see and hold my new great niece and great Nephew and they are so adorable!!

My dad is not doing well at all, sad to say that he won't last much longer if he does not have any more blood transfusions which they are considering stopping to let his misery and pain end. It has been a fun weekend with my family!

    What a brave concept to get married outside in NYC in March!
Glad to got to see the little ones.
My prayers for your family. I am a nurse and I do understand that the lingering of a loved one is painful for all

    I am so relieved you got there to see your Dad. I sat with my Mother as she passed. I and my stepfather held her hand and It is a bittersweet memory but It makes me feel good I was there. I had to leave the kids with strangers for 3 weeks and it was very hard on them. I have explained it to them and they understand. I would hope there will be someone with me at the end. emoticon

It is a bittersweet for you too, it is good there is the happiness with the young people in the family. This was a really perfect time to be in NY despite the weather, Great decision my dear friend HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Busy day

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I got to see my grandson today at his 7th birthday party but he wasn't feeling well. He ate something that didn't agree with him. I got to hug my son too.

I'm still trying to get over jet lag and get re-organized.

Home in New Hampshire

Friday, March 08, 2013

I got home safe and sound Monday with no flight or luggage problems. Now I am trying to get over jet lag and get organized.

We have lots of snow around my house and it has snowed a couple of times since Monday but the roads are clear and dry. It's cold so I have to bundle up when I go out.

I'm going to get to go to my Grandson's birthday party

    I'm glad you are here in the states and your luggage arrived with you. Our rain storms have left and gone to the mid west states. We don't need anymore rain as we have had enough. Temps are warming up.

Lost in Translation

Sunday, March 03, 2013

I tried to post this yesterday but the picture I posted was not very good at all, you could not read it so I am trying again.

This is on the back of a package of shiny, glittery cell phone bling stickers, I bought the package just for the instructions

    I thought I had problems with the pressure cooker from Korea.

MY really big surprise was buying a nutcracker table decoration in a pharmacy in Vegas. On the back the label said this product is painted with lead paint. It may cause DEATH. I went right back to the store and found the manager. I showed him the label which I had photographed to keep for myself. I handed him the nutcracker and he was really amazed that no-one else brought it to his attention. We went over to the display and everyone had that warning on them.
At least I could READ my label, good luck with yours it sure was lost in translation and lost from my computer yesterday too. So Glad I found it. HOME COMING is NEXT WOO HOO. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today while my New Hampshire home was getting another few feet of snow, Jeddah was getting a sandstorm. Orange sky, overcast and humid.

    Whoa never mind paint work what does it do to going outdoors in that. My teeth are cringing at the thought of getting sand in my mouth.

Poor you.

I have to ask a foolish question. Which storm do you find is worse. Sand or snow. I mean it I never experienced sand.

I hope the winds abate in the next few days.~~~~4 days and counting. HUGS Pat emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Hope to see you soon. Pat
