He was our classmate since kindergarten, and although I hadn't seen him since our last class reunion (which was our 8th grade reunion), I often thought of him. David was riding his bike and was hit on super bowl Sunday. He was a great person and will miss him! <BR> Sat, 28 Feb 2015 22:10:13 EST Skipped yesterday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5883777 It was a busy day yesterday...no time to blog.

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 13:12:21 EST Had fun http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5882601 Yesterday we had a line dancing session. It was quite fun although my "two left feet" sometimes went in the wrong direction. Oh well, I wasn't cut out to be a dancer. "Need more practice!" <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Wed, 25 Feb 2015 16:10:01 EST Line dancing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5882054 I'm not one for dancing. The only dancing I did was in high school when the bon season rolled around (during the summer months). Today our Active for Life team is sponsoring a Line Dance session for all to enjoy. We had a briefing yesterday, and hope I can remember the steps! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking!

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 17:21:07 EST New washer http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5880127 I am using our new GE washer today. Our old Maytag was almost 8 years old and started to leak oil from the compressor. This new one is so quiet, I can't even tell it's washing clothes! I'm happy. The sun is out and the wind is blowing so the clothes are drying quickly! Yay! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking!

We're tired of having scratches on the hood, so we decided to enclose the garage and install a garage door. We also need to repaint the house and reroof.... a whole ton of money, but it's all worth the cost. Better to keep the house in good shape. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Mon, 16 Feb 2015 13:08:26 EST Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5876477 Today was a very nice day. We had our annual breakfast brunch at school.

It didn't produce shards of glass, but it was sort of a pretty lacy privacy glass design. We can't figure out what happened. It was "normal" when we left yesterday....

Last March I got 4 plants from MDA. The first crop was so tiny... well it was not even a crop. We planted it in a topsy turvy planter. Not much luck there. Now I have three healthy plants that my hubby transplanted into normal pots. They are many strawberries of "normal" size. So happy!

They make themselves "at home," and sleep on our cars. They even think our yard is theirs. So the windows for the back wall were delivered today. Our contractor is getting the prep work done. Also finally someone who could give us a quote on our rain gutters came to give us an estimate. We've had the gutters since the late 1970's, and in recent years, they have deteriorated, especially since our last "tenting," the gutters are ...
