Good Afternoon, The sun is out and it is warm but the air is chilly. I finally drove the new car. Boy, driving 72 mph doesn't feel fast at all. I was amazed when I saw I was going that fast on the freeway. DH had the same feeling when he first drove the freeway. I was nice and took DH with me. Wanted to go to Bed Bath and Beyond. Before Christmas I saw on their web site they had a shower curtain with snowmen on it. Really cute. Well I never got there and spotted it on their web page yesterday. About page 35 of 47 pages of shower curtains. I had a 20% coupon off. The web page said it was available at our store in the valley. So off we went and found it. 1/2 price plus 20% off and paid $8.00 and change. I will put it up next year. Store was sure busy. Then to the bank and off to Costco down in that area that isn't the one we normally go to. It was busy as usual. I parked the car just fine and it really drives nice.
Judy, are you ordering your books at a used book store? I really like abebooks.com. I feel bad that your drive way isn't plowed out. Isn't Carol your room mate still there? Doesn't she work or get out?
Louise, DH got the temperature report for Western Mass. last night 7 degrees. I could not handle that either.
I know have to decide my cleaning direction now that the file cabinet AND my roll top desk are cleaned. Of course I have plenty of shelves that divides my sewing area and the living room. I think there are 21 shelves from floor to almost the ceiling. I don't think there is much to throw away. Even my sewing cabinet was cleaned out last year and not cluttered up as . I'm not much into sewing.
I'm glad the holidays are over and now we can get back to regular schedules. Today seems more like a Monday than a Wednesday.

Good Afternoon Patty and Judy and all who will follow!
Today we went out for lunch but we went to a breakfast place. It was our first time there. I had a pretty healthy meal--scrambled eggs and mushrooms and ice tea. I did have hash browns but not a lot. It was a really nice place. DD could have breakfast any time of the day so she was happy.
DH and I will probably have a date night tonight. DH is having an operation this Friday. He has a large cyst on his neck. He will be staying overnight if not longer. Please pray that everything goes well.
It has been cold for this part of Arizona. I know compared to most of you it is not cold but to us here that came out of the hundreds in the summer, 55 degrees during the day and 33 degrees at night is cold. I do not think I could ever live in Massachusetts again.
Well, everyone, please have a Wonderful Wednesday!
I drank my water. Didn't eat as much as I planned. Didn't exercise.
I have no caregiver right now so I tried to do a little house work. I did get the dishes done. I find that difficult to do while in my chair. Still, I can stretch a little. My new caregiver will start on Monday. I don't think she will stay all that long because she has to drive at least sixty miles just to get here. She only earns ten dollars an hour which means she will earn fifty dollars for driving 120 miles. It isn't something one can maintain for very long.
I need to find someone who would shovel my driveway for me. I can't get out to the car safely and once I get there I don't know if I can get the car out of the driveway. Problems, problems, problems.
I think getting the car going is a concern right now because today is my TOPS day and I was looking forward to weighing in. I think I've done well this week. No partying New Years Eve helps a lot.
I've been checking out some of the recipes JoAnna wrote for Diabetics. I haven't gotten her book yet, but I have been able to find some recipes on-line. I do have a book order all made out. Hopefully I'll be able to turn it in this month.
