It is supposed to get to 35 today and sunny so there will be some thawing going on. Looks like at least for the next week we will be above freezing. That will certainly get the snow to start melting down into itself. That will be so nice. I have a pulmonary doctor's appointment today so will get ready for that and hope to get some more answers.

I do think we get burned out on a job if you do it long enough.
Merri, our weather has straigtened out and we are sunny and warming. I think today we will have some thawing. I like that. Maybe we can get rid of the ice on the sidewalks for the last ice storm. Hope you all have a great day.

Well, this morning, we are in for some crappy weather. We are suppose to have rain/sleet/snow most of the morning. I think into the afternoon too...I start to see some stuff on the garage roof now..

Mr Ken went yesterday to Menards for his broken kitchen window and they said that maybe the company will stand behind it. There is such a thing called "stress fracture". We have to call the com today to see. If not, we will just have to buy the top part of the window...Not take the whole thing out at all...

Packers won their game yesterday. What a game it was...They won with 2 or 3 seconds to go...

It is only 2 degree here currently, I am not sure what it is suppose to get up to or if it even is going to get warmer, sorry Merri for your loss of your aunt. Tomorrow it is back to work for a day, It's just that there is usually an awful lot that needs or is just suppose to be done, and not enough time to get it all done, in the time we have to do it in. (at work) maybe I am just burned out now, I don't know, ttyal (talk to you all later)

Merri, so sorry for the loss of your aunt. She had a long life and it is good that Rick got to visit with her. Our weather here is going to be nice today and the rest of the week. It is above zero this morning so that is great. We are at 12 F.
Kirby, it is always difficult to get back at it when we haven't been exercising. I know how hard it is for me to walk after not doing it for any time at all. It doesn't take long. Hope you get to get out more this week.
Rosie, I don't envy you at all. You have had a lot of years of hard work. No wonder your knees are bad. Hope things change for you soon and you can retire.
Hope you all have a good day today.

Good Sunday morning my dear Sparks friends:

The weather is going to be really good hear today. It is only 16 right now but it is suppose to get to a high of 38! We will take it...

Mr Ken wants to go to Menards today. They have the 11% sale going on again. He has to get some new rollers for the garage door. When I went to use the remote on Fri....it didn't want to to it's thing. Mr Ken had to go in the side door and raise it than....If it is a big job...it will be nice out anyway....

My aunt passed away yesterday here in town. She was the last relative on my mom's side. I think she was 96. I am glad that Rick got to visit with her last summer. She & I always thought our sons were special after both of us having three girls first...

Merri, be careful on that ice. I really do dislike the ice in the winter. Kirby, I love chinese and I always eat too much of it too. I guess it is about time for me to make a trip to the chinese buffet. Rosie, that is a lot of years doing the work you do.
I walked 30 minutes again yesterday and will walk again today. I dusted and poilished the furniture yesterday and today will clean the bathroom and vacuum furniture. Hope you all have a very good day.

Good Sat morning to all of you....It is 22 here and cloudy. They are saying we should reach a high of 34! We will take it being it is almost the middle of Jan..

I know before I had my total knee done last Dec, it was very hard for me to even go for a walk on the sidewalks with the cement....It was so much easier walking on everyone's grass....LOL I bet they wondered what the heck is she doing anyway...

I am hoping our church parking lot will be ok tonight. That darn black ice is so darn hard to see and than it is dark when we get out of Mass....

Yup, I know, Sharon, I've been working on these floors like this doing the same thing, since, 1984. Between 1984-1988, off and on, more on than off and steady since 1988,

I also hope you don't feel ad about joining this group, Catlady!! If it was 55 degrees here and sunny, we could lose quite a bit of snow, which I wish we would emoticon

Catlady, it is nice to see you. I hope you are joking about feeling bad joining the group. I wish we had been unseasonably warm We are supposed to warm up starting today and I will take it. Hope you enjoy the group. Rosie, cement is the worst for people with bad knees. It is bad for people with healthy knees. Hope you all have a great day.

I feel bad joining this group. While my body parts all ache when a front comes through, I am here in Tucson and since it has been unseasonably warm this winter, we are talking cold at 55 degrees this weekend.

Rosie, does the weather bother you knee. I know that my joints get more sore when the weather is damp or changing. We don't have snow but it is so very cold. We are at -20 F. with wind chills in the -30's/. Thank goodness today is the last of the really cold days. Hope everyone has a good Friday even if it is the 13th.

It wouldn't be so bad to work, if my knee didn't hurt so bad when I am on my feet, all day.

Snowed here all day, but, seems to have stopped for now.

We had a quiet night last night and today the wind will pick up and we will have ground drifting and blowing snow. It will make for nasty driving for those out in the country. The temperatures will be dropping all day and we will get down to about 20 more more below zero. I can't wait for the warm up after that. Rosie, I know just how you feel about work. I have been there. I was able to retire and take in day care for almost 20 years and that sure did help. I was glad I had two wonderful families for most of that time. Hope you guys have a great day.

We show 23 degrees here and is only to get up to about 37

I have to work the next two days, bummer, I dread it. I really shouldn't but I do, I usually always feel a depression when I have to work anymore, I wonder why, I need to work to make all ends meet? Oh well, I'll feel better when I get there and get busy cleaning, I guess, there is never any tme to do everything that should be done, emoticon

Good morning. It is 27 here and they it feels like 17! They are saying we should bet up to 40 and than rain all night long...A lot better than snow. Mr Ken had to put his pump in his special hole he made for it to keep the water from going in to the garage and than freezing in there...

Today we are going to Farm & Fleet and having our tires rotated on our van. They are two yrs old and we have to take care of them....We love looking around in the store too when they are working on the van...

Good morning, all schools around here are closed today, it was very windy last night, and my power went out for just about a minute and was right back on, I have one clock to reset, I had to reset my bedroom alarm clock, and my new microwave clock needs to be reset and my coffee pot I had to reset. I have a bunch of twigs and stuff off from the tree by my deck behind my house

How was it out your way, last night?

We will be getting cold again until this weekend and then a warm up that I am looking forward to. It might even get above freezing. I would love to see it. We usually do get a January thaw and then winter seems like it is getting closer to the end. I am starting to think spring. I love the thought of getting out in the yard and enjoying the sunshine again. Hope you all have a good day.

Yesterday I did a couple loads of laundry and have one more to do today. It is snowing this morning and then we will get more snow overnight and in the early morning. Then we turn very cold again for a couple of days. I don't know what else I will do today. I don't know what will happen with supper tonight. I hope I feel like getting out. It has been a while and I need to start going again. Hope you all have a great day today.

It is a tough day here for me. I had to say goodbye to my little Mia yesterday and it was a shock. She hadn't been sick and yesterday I just knew something was very wrong and off to the vet she went. She had something to do with her immune system and her body was killing off the red blood cells. I rescues Mia just about 5 years ago on the 19th of January so I was blessed with the gentle soul for 5 lovely years. She will be missed every day and she is in my heart forever.

10 years is pretty old for a microwave that gets a lot of use.
Kirby sounds like you got lots done. Today I really need to get with it. I walked a little yesterday but want to do better today. I also would like to get some cleaning done today. It will all depend on how the morning goes. It will be cold again today so will be staying in. Hope everyone has a good day,.

Merri, that ice is so horrible. We had about an inch of rain before we froze and got snow so we have a layer of ice on the roads and sidewalks that will most likely be with us until spring. It is not nice. Rosie, sorry about your microwave. Do you use yours a lot or just once in awhile. I use mine to reheat but that is pretty much all. Kirby, hope you feel better soon and get to the doctor if you don't feel better soon. I know that the weather can really do a number on us. It has stopped snowing here and now it is just plain cold. We have -14 F. with a -31 F. below this morning and that is cold. The dogs sure do their business in a hurry. LOl. Well off to see what I can get done today. Hope you all have a great day.

Good morning from K-town where we are at 36 and very foggy!! It is suppose to start to rain soon and that should take care of the fog. Than we are going to really get cold tomorrow!!

We got alot of black ice is our area here too. The thing is..there is no way to really see it either. I know our church parking lot has black top and that turns to ice really fast....

Yesterday we went to Menards for the 15% bag sale. Oh my gosh we seen so many of our friends there and even relatives too..Got more than our share of hugs too....We also found out that we have been married 57 yrs not 56 LOL...Our dear friends that we used to square dance with were married in 1959 too and had to tell us how long we were married...Oh well LOL...

I don't have to hard a time changing to 2017. It used to be harder but don't have a problem now. It is done snowing and we got about 10 inches. It is still very windy so we have blowing and drifting snow. It is getting colder. I will be staying in today also. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning to the first Mon of this year! It is 34 here and not going to get much warmer. They are saying rain for this afternoon and most of tomorrow. Than getting VERY cold....

All of the decorations are down. Oh that front porch looks so bare now. I bet the neighbors across the street are saying "Oh no not already"...They just love our tree...

So today, we had better see if there is anything we need to do or go before it gets too cold out. Mr Ken thought it would be the best idea to make both of the hams we had. We got them for $.199 a lb. We are going to eat one and than the other one we cut it all up into slices and are going to bring it to the food pantry here so they can make sandwiches with it....We left alot of meat on the bone too so they can make soup with it....The other bone the kitties got...

We just seen where our Mendards has a bag sale. All you can fit in a bag and get 15% off. Oh no, now what will Mr Ken want next?

I could have went to a get together at church tonight and had snacks and played games, but, decided to stay home, it is too cold out and too much snow, maybe I'll have some crackers and cheese, not sure what else, except flavored water, or hot chocolate. Guess I better get back to "eating right"!! Huh?

Good to see you posting here Merri. Yes there sure are a lot of things going around. I am a firm believer of the Netti pot and use it twice a day faithfully. I do believe that it really helps kill some of the germs. Rosie, I hope the ice melt works for you too. It is so nasty when is slippery,. Kirby, glad that you got a walk in and yes it does help one to sleep when we get our exercise. Hope you all have a good day.

Yup, thanks, Sharon, and my walkways are okay here, now, but, my driveway was icy and I guess that is what I need is ice melt, as I usually always get the wrong stuff, like rock salt it always ended up being, said it was safe for side walks, Not

It was a pretty day here with sunshine but very windy last night and suppose to be snowy and cooler now. bummer

Merri, it is good to see you here again. My SIL Jim had both his knees done two weeks ago. the doctor told him that his were the worst knees he had seen. He is doing well and far ahead of where they thought he would be. Kirby, hope you get to do your walk today,. I wish it was warm enough for shirt sleeves here. Rosie, glad that you had a good time with your son. Our sidewalks are really icy here and need my son to put some ice melt down. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning all of my Sparks friends:

It rained most of the day here yesterday. I guess it is better than snow!! It is 45 here and they are saying we could hit 50...Than the cold comes back...

OK, Christmas is all over, now you can all rest...Or are you going to go out and face the crowds and sales. We got mostly gift cards and they fit just fine....Some for groceries, eating, gas, Menards and Farm & Fleet...

Of course for my birthday, I got a few Cubs things too...Mr Ken got what he wanted...a spare wheel for the van for his spare tire...The other one was so rusty that it had the tire go down all of the time...

I had a total knee done on Dec 1st and am doing GREAT. The dr thought I was there for my 5 week follow up instead of my two week. NO cane/ walker at all after five days....Still a bit stiff tho. Only had the PT lady for 6 times and no PT at the hospital after I got home either...One sassy gal here...

It was a great day. We had good food and great conversations and fun was had by all. The storm held off till time to go and when we left the sidewalks and driveway were like a skating rink. I was lucky to have my son holding me because I literally slid to the car door and had to catch on to it to stop so I could get in. It was pretty scary and I was glad to get home. Today I will be doing some laundry and getting back into everyday life again. Hope you all have a great day.
