I went to Lowe's last night and found bird seed on sale, I think they were getting rid of it, and got 20 lbs for $2.74! I ended up buying 4 bags (80 lbs). Should last me a long time.

It is cold and snowy here in Ohio. I put some seed out for the birds and some corn for the squirrels.

I did, DH helped me...I don't think my count this year was as big as last year, but then last year we walked along Elizabeth lake for about an hour. This year we didn't have time to do that.

did anyone do the Great Backyard Bird Count? I just didn't have time to do it. Haven't had much time to do anything at all with the new job and it's crazy work schedule and school.

I thought I would post on this thread today, but will post on our usual thread...What birds have you seen today?.

I just looked at the weekly digest we get and noticed nobody posted last week. We all must be too busy to notice the nature around us.

Hope everyone is doing ok and will be posting soon...including me!!

The company I work for is a huge pharmaceutical company and we are just one tiny tiny part of it. There are only 6 of us in this facility. I just hate the thought of moving if I have to. I love my house and where it is, but maybe it is telling me it is time for change. I did find a few jobs listed and will try to fill out appls on line in the next couple of days.

I will be busy this week as I have doctor appts and then my surgery on Friday (Feb 3rd). I will be off work for 2 weeks, so I should have time then to send out resumes, etc.

My Hubby's company moved back to N.J. He has been of work almost 2 months. I hear ya about being scared. I would start looking for another job. If something comes along then that is great, if not, then hopefully the co. you work for now will offer a severance. Most companies do, but I don't know how big your co. is. It's tough out there.

I forgot to post an update, but I did have a call back from this group. The job only pays $8/hr and no benefits. They provide the dog and training. I did tell the woman I spoke with that I will be losing my job at the end of the year and the big difference in pay would hurt, so I am passing it up for now. I asked about "shadowing" someone and she said she would call me back in the fall and maybe I could do it part-time. They busy season of course is in the spring and fall. July the geese molt and they don't bother with them since they can't fly, so they do their selling to clients during that time. If I didn't have to worry about money, I would have taken the job!!

If I didn't post this earlier, I found out that my job along with 5 others will be gone at the end of the year. We just found this out on Jan 10th. They are moving the operations to Chicago. I really don't want to move there and not sure what to do at this point. Do I stay until they close or do I start looking for a different job. I rather get a start on it and not have to worry later. I don't know if I would still get a severance package or not. So many questions not answered at this point. Scared about it...YES!! I am barely making ends meet as it and being on unemployment won't cut it. I may end up losing my home if I cannot find a decent paying job...equal to what I am getting now at least.

It is a very small company in northern Ohio and work in my county. It only has about 5 or 6 people working for this guy. The ad said entrepreneurial, so that would probably mean not much pay and no benefits. But yes, does't hurt to try.

I found the perfect job posted in the paper the other day. It was for geese control. What is was if for a skilled dog handler. They use border collies to patrol property to chase geese off them. I would love to work with dogs and wildlife. It would kill 3 birds with one stone...work outdoros and work with dogs and wildlife. I sent my resume in, although I am not a skilled dog handler, but I do have dogs and I am working towards my degree in Environmental Science with an emphasis in biology!

I will let everyone know how things go on Weds. I am not too worried about the test as it is only on what we learned in the last couple weeks of class. Of course, last Tues I missed a class but got a few notes from another student. Not sure how much it will help me on those questions. I have to look back through my notes on a video we watched to make sure I wrote something down that she put on the study guide. I can probably find the video on youtube....I hope!! Then she likes to ask questions about current events, so I hope I know the answers to that too!

Good luck with the big test Kim, and I hope the results from your surgery is good news. I'm glad your getting this done though, and not ignoring the problems.

Just got done with my writing project for class (I went back to school this fall) and next Tues is my final test. Then on Weds I will be having outpatient surgery to see if I have cancer or not (uterine or ovary). I've been having issues and the blood levels were up for the CA-125 test for cancer. Not looking forward to the surgery, but looking forward to getting a diagnosis to see what the next step is.

Christmas shopping is pretty much done, may need to get one more thing. I will spend Christmas Day up at my brother's house. Christmas Eve will be at my mom's.

This year did fly. We aren't having a big Christmas this year since my Hubby just got laid off. So our Christmas shopping is done except for my Hubby's Great Nephews. There are only 2 so not much more to buy. We go to my SIL on Christmas Eve., then we will have Christmas dinner, just the 3 of us. Probably visit with my neighbors across the street. How bout you?

I thought the stew turned out good. It is different, more a sweeter than savory with the apple cider. My one sister didn't like it because of the bay leaf or fresh thyme you cook with, but take out before serving. We had something one other time that called for bayleaf and it does give it a funky flavor. I have 2 dishes of leftover, so I know what I will be having for dinner tonight and later this week. OH and the pork turned out really nice and tender. I roasted the left over porkloin and shredded it and put BBQ sauce over it. Yummy...sandwiches. I have some crusty loaf bread that I used with the stew. I guess it will be a pork week.

I just need to quit eating all the other crap this week. I have gained a couple of pounds. I think it is stress from starting school and I feel like I've done nothing but eat. I wasn't tired until later in the evening and could stay awake and fell asleep on the couch. I ended up going to bed earlier that usual and slept until 8:30 this morning.

I could not fall asleep last night and was up until about 4am. I ended up getting up and frying my meat for the stew I was making for todays lunch with my mom and sisters. I ended up getting up at about 9:30am. I had to rush to cut up the veggies and putting it all together in the crockpot to cook. I hope it gets done by 12:30pm. I have it on high, so it should be. I made Rachel Ray recipe, Autumn Stew. It is pork tenderloin, apples, cranberries, onions, carrots, and celery. The liquid is chicken broth and apple cider. Yum!!

I hope I can stay awake. I need to start studying for my first exam on Thursday and have new homework for my other class I need to work on.

You are so blessed to see so many butterflies! Only invasive cabbage whites around here, I am afraid.

I can post some pictures of them. It is kind of fun chasing them around hoping they will land on a flower and sit still long enough to take a picture. I didn't get pictures of the cabbage white and wood nymph as they don't stop often. I did try to get one of they nymph, but then I would scare it and it would fly off.

I took advantage of the much cooler weather to do my butterfly monitoring at the park. It is in the 70's today and less humid. I spotted 4 different species and spooked a deer.

Good news too today! My doctors office left me a message saying my blood work came back normal, but didn't leave me the counts as to what my cholesterol and sugar was, so I am going to have to call back for those. I would like to know just for my own knowledge, but also need it for a health assessment I need to do for work. So my question is why do I feel so crappy! I suppose it is partly depression and lack of exercise. So I need to get moving again. I did feel pretty good during my walk at the park today!

Yesterday was terribly humid. 79 degrees felt like 99. Today wasn't as bad but still hot. We had some tstorms this week that gave us some rain. Not sure how much it helped the crops, but the weeds are growing. I did mow my grass, first time in probably 2-3 weeks. The has turned green again. I had to make sure the birds had water too!

We're 100 here, chance of thunder storms, so makes it sticky. At least we get a breeze. That helps out!

How is the weather in the rest of the country? My friend says it has been so hot in the midwest that the crops and even the animals were dying off.

NP Kim. I agree, electives might be a good way to start. You can get back into the swing of things without to much pressure. Hope they let you do that. Sorry not all of your credits would go through, but at least some did. It's been hot here too. emoticon

Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is surviving the heat wave. It reached 102 degrees today, but the heat index was between 115-120, I believe. Pretty much stayed indoors the last couple of days, but today was the highest temp so far. A little cool down is due tomorrow, but only a few degrees. I watched a couple of robins in a tree this morning and they were just panting, so I made sure there was water in the bird bath. I did see someone used it and there were splash marks on the driveway.

I have a feeling I may be busy over the next couple of months or years....I am going back to school and was looking at some of the class schedules and some are almost every day. I may end up just starting off with one class. Not sure yet. I am trying to contact a professor, who is a student advisor, to figure out what I should start off with. I think I would rather get some of the easy stuff out of the way, like the electives they say I have to have. Only a few of my previous credits transferred. I was hoping for more. Oh well.

So if I am not around, you know I am at school and/or studying. I will try to chime in when I can even if it is a quick post!!

We will be about 105 tomorrow, and this week-end. It is raining in No. Calif., and I see clouds off in the distance, but I don't think we will get any rain. Hope TX. doesn't get hit any harder!

Not much going on here. In the 80's today and the rest of the week is supposed to be in the 90's. I am hoping to be out on a boat in Lake Erie this weekend. Been really busy with getting my mom home and taking care of here. My oldest sister came into town and is now doing that, so it gives the rest of us a break for a while. Since she is with constantly, we are hoping that she will be up and moving without a walker in no time. At least she has gotten her appetite back and is eating more.

We (South Texas) has been getting rain finally - actually it's
coming down to fast and some places are having flooding issues.

Now we have the feeder bands from Tropical Storm Arlene.
I got caught in several yesterday on my way to and from the
dentist (an hour away).

Keeps my exercise up by mowing the lawn!!

But the mosquitoes?? wow they are many and huge

They said we were to get some rain yesterday, but it pretty bypassed us. It did see in one small area on my way home where it did rain. Today we are probably going to have a better chance of rain. Looks like on the weather map a long line of thunderstorms heading this way. Won't be here until mid day.

We had a little rain on Friday, first time in a couple of weeks. They are forcasting some rain this week, but not much. I really can't wait to get my pipe fixed that goes to my faucet outside so I can have some water to water my plants. They need water.

For the most part, this morning was dry with a few sprinkles. I was able to mow my grass which was about 6-8 inches long. I will probably mow again this weekend just to cut up what didn't get mulched. It is raining now! I am getting water-logged!!

We're still having high wind warnings, and had a surprise rain last night. Plus we might get more this week. Such odd weather.
