Today I feel like I am starting over at exercise. We drove and sat in the car so long over the last days that my legs are in need of strength exercises I meet Sandy this morning and that will start me out again. She is good to keep me on track. emoticon emoticon

It is like spring here. there are more birds and the feeder is empty by noon. I will need more seeds today. emoticon emoticon

Not much else to say today as I relaxed yesterday.

We had a snow fall about 6 inches. Our son and Fred and the day was still cold. At noon time we were about 35*F and the snow fell off the trees and the driveways were hot top the sun melted the snow.
We went out to buy some potting soil. I had left the potting soil in the locker garden at the end of the garden and I was not about to walk through the snowbanks.
I have had Amaryllis that three bought me for Christmas but it was from a nursery. I have had them three years and tomorrow I will put them in their pots. I have had them in water and they are so leggy. I might not be able to grow them.
The sun was warm and I feel better when the sun shines a bit longer.
I decided to read to Fred about my Valentine. He could not read it on my computer so I read it. Not very well I must say. I am going to find my Seuss books or I might go to the kids library. I LOVE,LOVE LOVE Dr.Seuss books. When I was reading Seuss the kids were laughing and I was so happy in those days.

Today I am glad that I pushed hard to get settled in and wash done. I am tired Today we had a bad storm last evening. Inches of wet snow that covered the pine trees. The were so loaded they were bent down on our fence. This morning it is warmer and all the snow and slush is gone.

Working on the meal plans for this week. We both gained back a few pounds last week. I have pork chops out to do today.

Blessings to all of you

Today we are home and I am unpacked. Our house/cat sitter is really good. He leaves no mess. Bless him. The cats are so glad to see us. They sat on our lap last night and then both came in to wake us up this morning.

We are getting a visitor this afternoon. I baked chocolate chip cookies. We need to go to the store but I wanted to unpack and get wash started. Dave helped and ran the sweeper and we fluffed up the house quickly. It is good to be away and get a break but coming home is great!

We didn't really exercise just walked when we were away. So,... Monday is on for me. I will meet my friend and get back on track. I looked at the scale this morning and I am up 5 pounds. In 2 weeks i have my yearly check up so I have to really count my food and eat right this week and next week. Why is it so hard to drop a pound and just looking at food you seem to pick up 2 or 3 pounds.

The rain was not as bad here as in other parts of the state. We are fortunate to live up on a hill and the water doesn't cause too much trouble. Our lawn is really soggy and wet. so everything is saturated. I am hoping that we don't get too much cold weather in the next couple days or the ice will be bad

Enjoy the weekend.

I am so glad you went and it was a good trip. Now you are ready for Monday.
Today we have 40 degrees on our thermometer and we have not had a 40 there since LAST YEAR.
We have a lot of melting ice and it looks much better. The plows did not do a good job, our road is not very wide. I think some other man had to do our roads. It was done and that was what we needed. The school bus just gets through but it is getting better.

Where is the flooding in TENNESSEE or WEST VIRGINIA. I hope your emoticon emoticon I would have had about 20 cats on the page. I have a problem computer or another mouse but I am thinking it is the mouse I HOPE.!!
I did a big Blog and it disappeared and I am not in the mood to do it again. emoticon emoticon mmm

emoticon Happy Valentineís Day!!!

Yes we are in Tennessee. Gatlinburg is the place. We enjoyed the sunshine yesterday and drove through the National Park. Then we ate out for Valentineís Day. Today we are resting. Tonight we will go to the church across the street to a dinner and Ash Wednesday service.

Your son must be a very responsible person that he has so much to do. Stones can be very painful. I know that you miss him. I think last year you went out there didnít you? He has a large house.

I washed up some things we have worn so we can get home with some clean. Tomorrow is our last day here and then it is a 7 hour drive home. I miss my two cats. I donít miss all the work.

We are not visiting our friends as they have the flu. We are also not going to crowded places because the flu is really everywhere in this area.

Stay well, WV Sue

I am so happy you PERKED UP after your long drive. You said it was beautiful but I cannot remember where you were. I think TENNESSEE. ENJOY.

Our son in Wisconsin was in the hospital and they thought it was his hear because the pain was in is chest. Then another person saw the gall bladder with several stones. He came home on Monday and I called him, the Bachelor and we had snow and I wanted to go on the train or fly. I called him about the plants for his home and he said he had changed his mind. Only then he told me about the surgery. He is alone and the people at work will help for the week. He has all his huge computers and he can do it at home. I did ask if he will be resting. He said My counter where the computers are he stands. He said if he is bored he might put in some numbers for Sargento. I said I would come but he asked me not too. His 50th birthday he will be alone and I had asked him a week before and can he come home. They are needing him this week. He is the only one who he can do it. There were three in CLOROX and he was looking around. He lived in Walnut creek, close to Nappa Valley and SAN FRANCISCO he liked it but a head hunter had talked to her and she remembered and after a year she called Stephen and he was coming home for Fred and I 50th wedding Anniversary. Fe flew from Augusta and came back with the job. He flew back to Maine we had the party just the family and he had to go back to California. He has a good job. I had hoped he would find a lady but he is very independent and tomorrow he is 50.
AND I MISS HIM SO MUCH and I hope the people he works with will help him.

Wonderful news about the computer and screen. That was a big step. I am so glad to hear got your husband set up. I am sure you are tired after all the work at the concert. They are so lucky you do all that. emoticon

We drove to my cousins in Fairfield Glades Tennessee yesterday. It was quite a drive. There were several ways to get there. We started and got part way to the interstate road and the road was blocked. The rain has been hard and heavy. That road was under water and blocked. We had to turn back and go another way. So... the drive took almost 3 hours. Dave drove in the heavy traffic and I drove my shift in heavy rain. We have a great dinner and visit. I am so glad we went. This cousin grew up a couple blocks from me. Then we took a different route back. I need to get in some walking. We drove 7 hours on Friday to get heree and 6 hours yesterday. My back and legs have had it.

Today we are relaxing and i am going to walk around. It is cloudy and overcast but not raining today.YET!

I have a question. What is the Rangeley Lake, Maine, area like? How far away from that are you? We were just looking around as we sat here at this resort.

Great you are there and enjoy your time.

We were supposed to have freezing rain. This was the concert day and the freezing read did not appear so I had to get the Drinks and some Valentine tiny fudge brownie and they were topped with w sweet pink rose so I bought them,
I bought a BIG MONITOR, 32 inches and beveled. I went in to the Sam's Club and I saw a white display Monitor. I turned around back to the car and I said I want to show you something. He came in and I walked through the Computer area. I stood front in the Monitor and I said isn't this fabulous, you could read off that screen. He looked at me, I said would you like it and with a big smile he said YES.
We bought it I only had a dinner with the kids for his birthday I said Happy Birthday. Our son said we have to get an HMDI . I went to Staples and PETER tried so hard to make it work. I took the monitor back and they said your computer is a DELL and it will not work with this Monitor. I said I will take the HDMI back it was $42.00 and we will by a computer. We talked to the men and they set it up and DH was not very ready for new computer. I said You cannot see our Files and our finances and you have had them all the time and I have no clue where they are. We need a new computer to add to the monitor and he just looked and I said yes. It took three days to get it up. Peter was reading all over and he had never set one up. Peter thought that was not the end. DH was 7.1 and now it is Microsoft 10.
We went to the concert and we came home and Peter and DH had to have a lesson . Not me I did all the refreshments on my own. I was busy and 2 ladies asked if we will help you. I sad a resounding YES. It went well. I had the little fancy touches and everyone were praising me for the three tables. I worked alone and I came home. There were a number of people of the committee. three people who could no get out they had more snow as we had. I am tired and Fred is ecstatic being able to see his finances. Not much but we have a little we saved and I did not know it. We have joint finances and I never even thought about it till this week.
I am so glad to push him to say yes and he is SO HAPPY and that makes me happy too.

More driving today. It is about 2 hours to my coucinís home from here.

Too much driving and not enough exercise so I know that I will need to get busy Monday.

Rain here but no ice or snow. Feels more like spring.
Blessings to you today!

I went to the university to check out the programs. I wanted Drawing but the last 2 people are on the wait list. I can draw at home
. Fred and I are going to 8 weeks to see a different place or whatever in Maine.
We did all the light-houses and the waterfalls now a different man decided to find places or whatever.
We go by car. If people want to come in our car I will drive. If just Fred and I, he is the driver. We shall see, it will be a ride out.

Good you are warm and people you know to have conversations, well done.
ENJOY Yourselves and I hope the sun is even warmer down there. Pat in Maine. emoticon

I am with you. I go to the stores as early as I can. I am glad we have a little freezer.
I do not go to the Drs and I have to go in with a mask on.
These people will look and not come near me. I stay near the further door and I was my hands. I have a sanitizer and a mask. We have a concert and I am not happy to be so many people are coming. Perhaps we might have another snow day, emoticon emoticon

Ice and snow here. Several accidents. One 4 car smash up near our house. Glad yo be home. Staying in and finishing packing for the week trip to Tennessee. I hope the roads are better tomorrow morning when we leave.

Stay safe as these storms are causing problems. Also it is good to stay away from large crowds as the flu is everywhere.

If you loose something on the computer. You hit both the control key and th Z . Both keys must be pushed down. Control and the Z. Try that next time. I wrote a note on a sticky pad and put where I sit at my computer.

I had a lot to do today. I started about 6 am to get ready at home. Then at 8 am I left to drop off things to my daughter at work. The I got my hair done and cut. Then had to pick up a friend and drive her home. Then he state police told everyone to get off the roads. I got home at 2:30.

Tonight I am fixing spaghetti and meatballs. It is cold an comfort food is good. Dave likes all kinds of pasta with spaghetti sauce on them, His favorite is the pasta that looks like wheels. He say more sauce stays on the pasta.

I hope you donít get too bad a storm, it has been hard to drive here all the time. More ice than snow.

Thinking of you andd hoping you stay well and safe

I had a really nice letter and Fred came in and he gave me a kiss and I managed to hit the laptop and I was ready to cry.

These days I cannot re-write but I will try.
You are lucky to go to TENNESSEE to family, that's great. Hopefully it will be warmer there and that will be nice after your snow.
I am thinking your snow is coming our way and we are supposed 8 inches of snow.
Today I went out and asked Fred to come in to Sam's to show him some thing.
I had seen a big computer Monitor that was expense and some sale price. He was so excited to get it up in the room on his desk.
It was perfect and together we added his lap top that has all of his information and lots of things I am supposed to try to look at. I doubt it but I and Fred are so disappointed and he came in the bedroom and I was sparking to you and he walked over his kissed him and I blew it away. THE" X "DID not come back but I had interfered with my hand.
The MONITOR is new and his lap top was too small of a screen.
I have tried to say it all and before I will go to watch some TV togetherness. Please safe trip and have great time. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon E-N-J-O-Y- Both of you. emoticon

Home all day today. Cleaning, baking, and tossing stuff in a box to give away. Yesterday I got a lot of music sheets sorted. Good day.

I have a plan set for us next week for breakfasts and lunches. Dinners i will have to be watching. We leave Friday for Tennessee. We are visiting with friends and with family. My cousin and his family are near where we will be staying.

Your oven sounds really nice. I think they do a lot of things. My big over is too big for me sometimes. I do have a toaster oven but that seems too small. I hope your oven works out good for you.

Cold but no more snow. I filled the bird feeder twice. Our sidewalk has cleared a little but still has some ice. I worry about falling too. Old bones don't do well hitting cement.

We are eating out tonight. We have a gift card. Also I have been really busy all day. We have a cat/house sitter. He moves in and stays here the week we are gone and watches the house and the two cats. . I have things set up for him. He eats breakfast and dinner here. His real job is as a postman. He is in his late 20's and does a great job. His sister was our sitter before him but she is married and has a child now so she said her brother would like to do it..

Tomorrow is my day to pack and put things for the kitchen I a box . I have most of the clothes we will need already to go. We leave on Friday for a week. We are back the next Friday. It is about a7 hour drive. It takes 4 hours just to get out of West Virginia.

Tomorrow I may be late of early. i get my hair done in the morning and then run an errand fora friend. She needs a ride.

Hope you are having a good week.

HI I am in a loss of memory and I have been sitting trying to find my Favorites. All I found was favorites and it used to go the place.
Fred had to go to the podiatrist and we had wet all night over ice and I saw a number of people fall down.
I have been sleepy and I am sneezing but I am certain it is the dryness not a real cold touch wood.
This morning the dogs were up so I looked around my kitchen and it was cluttered so I decided to move a lot of things around and took things off the shelves and cleaned my plastic shelf paper and put it back. It cleans up good so I will not go out buy if I can clean it again.
I bought a counter oven, I was sitting in the chair and it was 6a.m. and I was tired so I got my oatmeal and put on TV . There was a counter oven not a micro wave it is an Oster and I bought it for myself I have not even cooked with it yet. I am hoping to have a number of their cook book but I think it will be easier to cook in this smaller thing. I used to do lots of scones and Fred eats them too fast. We are doing Fruit crisps and stuff that like. He likes cooked apples and pears and Plums, these are the fruit we had so we are going back to our food like that. I no longer use pastry, the crust made us both have heart burn. I love to have Fruit on the bottom and oatmeal, very little sugar and we really like it. Now I am getting ready to begin to make food in it at last. It is convection and I can use it as a dried fruit machine. I cannot remember the long word I am just getting fed up of not remembering words. De hydrator or something lime that. ((((HUGS))) Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today my computer was down all morning. I went out to take something to my daughter at work. The roads were very icy. My friend called and Said she couldnít meet me at rage gym because her driveway was all icy. It is a very steep driveway and if you slide you end up in the neighbors yard. So I just went back home.

I worked the bedroom and part of our bathroom to clear out more stuff. Downsizing sure takes time. I have to simplify this place to be able to keep it going. Since we desired to stay here things have to be easier.

The weather in a Florida sounds like a heat wave. I would just like above freezing and sunshine. I grew up in western New York State. It was heavy snow but...lots of sunshine. We have so many dark days here.

I did stop At WalMart and walk some so that would help today. I guess my stationary bike will have to do. I needed to get Valentine cards for our grand niece and grand nephew. I Aliís send cards to the children next door. They get so excited to get mail. I do not give candy.

More tomorrrow.

WELL DONE with the big numbers. Keep it going and eventually I will have some big ones.
I know how it feels when we have to change because someone has appointments and we usually switch but lately we will not walk the Rail Trail.
You are getting some baking done. I wish I had time to use my counter oven, I saw them on TV and it was a good buy. It is on the counter ready to go. I have a big convection in my stove but it takes along time to come up to power so I am thinking I will use the convection but time passes by.

In UK Valentines we buy cards for lovers or Wanna Bees. There were never Valentines for children. I guess the candy stores and making children eat candy on Valentines Day.
Fred and I have our first Valentines cards and I used to keep it in it's box. He had his and we put it in my box and we brought it with us to the States. We bring them out in the box and stand them both together on the table and we both say Happy Valentine still and we hug and kiss and our boys watch us doing it. They had to make Valentines and we had to buy candy and they put names on the envelope to give to each others.
I have to say that Valentines Day in our house we do not do cards-WE STILL HAVE THEM, MEMORIES. We have candy from school and it is like Halloween.
Our sons, who are married like our little ritual but they have never kept them.
I am reday for bed bt I have too much more to Spark. Pat in Maine

It's overcast in NW Florida, near Pensacola, but at least it's in the high 60's. We've had freezing temps almost every morning. It's not supposed to be like that in Florida. We're only about 50 miles from Mobile, 30+ miles from the Alabama/Florida border.

Today we have snow/rain mix. It is a mess. We were just a bit of snow when we left for church. Then Iíd got very wet snow and now rain. I hope the temperature stayswarmer. I really donít like ice. I cleaned the sidewalk and my path to the bird feeder. emoticon

The cats ran to the door but when I open it they turn back. Snoopy is like the chihuahua. He likes sunshine. Both cats came from the south and they had never seen snow or really cold weather.
emoticon emoticon
After church we drove to a friendís house to pick up things for the ďNew2YouĒ store. There were a lot of sheets so that will be great! Mist were flanne full size. My friend has a hospital bed now. She has good and not good days.

I need to get Valentines things ready. Next Friday we are going away for the week. I will have my computer etc. with me. I need to give out Valentines this week so that they get them. I baked pepperoni rolls again and brownies last night. I will give some to my daughter and also to Helen when she comes Wednesday. emoticon

Sandy, my friend, canít do exercise early tomorrow morning and wants to meet at 1 pm. I will go but once I start working on things here I hate to quit. emoticon

Well done, big spin and what about SHAKESPEARE. In UK we did his plays from 11 to 18 years old.
I have my favorites and in Augusta we have Monmouth Theater. They do some Shakespeare. If you look at the Theater at Monmouth in Maine you will be a good place to go. I do not go often but when I like it-AS -YOU- LIKE -IT! Too
Fred and I did the snow removal that gave me over 2 hours outside. Fred did both driveways and I always do the steps and I keep a big part of the pool area. It is easy to do pick up after
they go out. They usually run about right over the frozen pool The Chihuahua loves to lie in the sun. There is a corner where the sun melts the ice off the Vinyl cover and she sits on the Warm vinyl. She is a sun worshipper and now she likes my oatmeal. She loved cottage cheese but they have a different thick texture. I love it that way but I give her oatmeal and cottage cheese. She is very-very very picky Give me a lab any day. I still love her.
So today is sunny but still cold. The THEATER (Spelled that way) is 25 miles to get there but the roads are usually good. Fred and I are able to sit in the center of the first row. I had asked if anyone moves from the center please give just him. A couple had no longer going so we see everything and we hear everything and no heads to block vision. 5 of us have seats now for a several years.
We will eat out and the theater starts at 3pm.
Well done with your house, I have too much clutter when the family find a house I will be uncluttered SOME DAY but I love having people in the house. Pat in Maine.

The road was cleared last night. Dave said do you want to go to the store? So we went to the store and got a few things to be ready for the storm coming. I need to take a picture ot my room now that I am almost finished putting things back

You have another concert coming and that is good. That is such a nice community you live in.

Dave has worked on the snow in the driveway and the ice. Much of the ice on our sidewalk is still there.

Today I want to finish more of the bagging up things to put out and clean up a couple places I still have piles of things to separate. I have done as much on Sparkpeople as I can today.
.
I use the control Z a lot on my laptop because a lot of things just disappear. I have a card stock over the square that you use to move things and use a mouse because my fingers just slide over things and nothing happens.

Stay warm and safe and well

Hi there, Thanks for the Z I will give it a go.
Fred and I did the snow blowing and the blue sky only lasted a short time. We have not been out because the roads were bad but the kids went to school.
I tried to get those Challenges off. It is all over the pages of photos. Peter took off the photos but I still only a strip about a third of the page and the 2/3 is white. It is better be nothing than the photos.
I pushed the pool connection, they left a part on. I pushed the gate and it dropped down just enough to close the gate. I tried to pull it up and I have my right arm at the shoulder. I had a rotator cuff tear on the right arm and I am hurting. The first time was 6 weeks strapped to my body and then 6 weeks in a sling. I am hoping it did not tear the rotator cuff again so I cannot type even slower now.
I wish we could talk together.
I cannot remember before and I cannot remember now but I would like to chat. We are going to the theater tomorrow and we are going with our walking buddies. It is late and I had hardly begin. emoticon Pat in Maine.

All schools in West Virginia are closed except 4 counties in the southern part of the state. I m not going out. Dave cleared th driveway and in front of the house. Roads are icy. We had rain yesterday and then the temperature dropped fast.

You have had a busy time going to doctors. Did your glasses help? Are you in less pain? I worry about you.

The birds are flocking in to the feeder and I am sitting here just watching. Dave is reading the paper and both cats are curled up sleeping. This is going to be a laid back day.

Sometimes when you have words disappear in the things you print on the computer, you can do control Z. And it comes back.

WVSue.

The moon was excellent. Emily was taking photos and I had to go to a Dr.
DH was in bed and he gets up at 9am. I drove myself to the Dr and it was another hour and it was a bit better getting back.
I took a challenge just for something to do and there were no instructions. I made a mess of it and now my page is with the Facebook and all those photos. I did all my food an d they were written down but I had to have it in the wrong place Instead of one line it went 4 times for 7 days so I decided to QUIT the challenge. All of the mess is still on my page and my embarrassment is high. I tried to go to the Questions & Answers I hope it will be a quick repair.
Tomorrow I have an early podiatrist appointment and that time I went and got stuck in the snow and I will have to leave the car at the bottom of the hill and walk up it and down.
We are getting more snow so I might cancel the appointment.
I am way behind so good evening and hopeful for tomorrow.

Ihaea friend in the hospital and we are heading out to visit. She and her husband are both th hospital. Iím wondering what happened. Dav needs gas in his car so he is going with me.

We had overcast skies and didnít see the moo, I am so glad you and your GD enjoyed seeing it together.

Hope you stay well and keep warm.

Today was busy because Emily and I were watching the super moon was dropping in to the trees. We watched together and she and her Dad got in the car to look at the big moon over the river.
I went to the Y and I walked for an hour and 5,985 steps. Now I know that is close because I have to go by 15 minutes to keep count. I wrote it down to see the numbers are similar.
My friend and I went for coffee and I went back to the counter and I bought a big salad and instead I bought a quarter pounder with just the beef. Our McDonalds get the best salad mix and DH and I love it.
I called to the restaurant where DH and I go to the 99.Our son and family and we took Fred and it was a really nice evening. I got home around 9 pm and I am trying to do some sparking.

I understand about the houses. I know you want them to be happy and to find a place. But it is hard today to find something that is in good shape. Also, the place needs to be accessible to get to a store and work. I hope they find a place not too fat from you We looked at a double wide but the price was too high. Many of the houses here are priced by the area they are in. If it is near the University the price is higher. Perhaps they can find a place with part of the yard fended in for pets. emoticon emoticon

Today was music at 10 am. I was out and stopped at the store on my way home. The sun is out and it is cold but a pretty day. I like to see the sunlight. This area has a lot of dark days. I grew up near Jamestown New York. It is in the very western area of New York state. The days are cold and there was a lot of snow but the sunshine keeps you going.

Today I have to get more done in the room I painted. Helen comes tonight to stay after she teaches her night class at West Virginia University. I have put a few things in that room while I painted. I have to get them all out and be ready for her. It is always busy.

Glad you are getting to see the homes as they look around.

Our family and their Realtor-A friend with kids doing bowling and going to Championships together. DH and I had our windows and the places we needed to replace years ago. That man died and this is his son I knew him as a boy.
I went to look at the house, I did not ask anything but I did ask about having a concrete slab , no wheels and how much insulation. Fred did not come but I have been asked to look at the house they would like. The inspectors came and the realtors were told the price is too high. The Double wide was over 25 years so this morning our DIL told me they were not interested.
This week they will look at a house very near to us and out of town and a bit of land. It is much nearer if it happens and they wanted to go to another school. That was why they did the virtual Schooling in her bedroom. She loves it.! Great..
I never asked to go but they asked me to look at things. We shall see but I was afraid the dogs we
re out in the "BOONDOCKS" where wild animals live. The Chihuahua has to be tether or fenced. So we are still all together and our DIL took a job to raise money and she works nights and son does the day. Neither of these houses I would not like I keep my mouth closed it is there HOME. DH has his birthday today and DH and I will go out together it is very cold. Tomorrow the Kids will take us to dinner.
I am still doing the challenge because the face-book part etc is in the way
I am doing less time for Sparking. Exercise, Nutrition and Spark friends are my priorities.

You really do a lot. I hope the dogs will never okay. I jpjniwvyou worry. Someone of your sonís family will have to give the dogs some time to help them adjust. I know they want to have their own home and that is a good thing the found one. You get your home back too. They will have a big change. We fenced our land because of deer, coyotes, and other animals.

Icy and 3 to 4 inches of snow. I am not going anywhere today. So...it is back to cleaning out and packing stuff up to go out the door to some place if some one.

It is cool in the house so I am baking pepperoni rolls. The oven jeeps it warmed up.

Our cats are both curled up on the couch to sleep and stay warm.
Wishing you to feel better today.

I am wondering Spark is trying too hard with these challenges. I thought I might be fun so I started it. I had no clue to use the cartoon things. The first day the comment of mine did three times and I tried everything and I was very annoyed. Spark Guy asked about the challenge and there were many said they were great, young people loved it and older people did it all different and finally people were complaining about how many sends us so many on the boards and it takes too much time, especially I am a slow poke.
When my E-mails come in and I have to delete about 50 to 60 a day so I just put them all together and I can get ahead of it.
I have had a bad headache after moving heavy furniture and my shoulders and neck are sore and I have a bad headache so I am going to bed. I went back to bed when DH got up. He sleeps still nine, I am up at 6am and today as Fred went to get his breakfast, I went back to bed. Then Fred got me up to drive Emily to her Karate. I came home hoping to go back to bed instead I took two Ibuprofen. I am worried the dogs have been spoiled with me and the Chihuahua got to our fence and so we bought bricks to go outside the bottom of the chain link fence. They will not be able to buy a fence and Jackie used to bring her home or we panic where she was. They have over an acre and the back is a jungle back after there. There are deer, and foxes and I know there are wild animals and she would walk yapping and she would stand her stance. You saw how little she is, but you she is a beautiful face and she is muscle because she is half Chihuahua and Doberman Pynchon.
She is very smart and she has nose like a dog who could find anything. A crumb on the floor she snaps it up. (((HUGS))) Pat in Maine.

Yes staying here was a good decision. It took a lot of worry off me. I have a lot I can do here. I Pt will wor our okay. I really like this house and the area. We are close to food stores and both I79 to go north and south, and I 68 that goes east. I can drive any where easily.

I loved the pictures of the pool and the dogs. Yes I can understand your worry. The two cats we took from our nephew were alone all day and the family was very busy. They really like their life with us.

Today I meet my friend at the gym. We didnít go last Thursday. The weather and picking up Carol at the airport got in the way.

I have Dave checking on the large letter keyboard. I will also call my friend Diana. She teaches computer classes. I will let you know what they say. That would be helpful for many people.

Enjoy the day l

Good you are staying in your nice home. We rearranged our bedroom and now the bed is in a place where the light gets in through the biggest window in the house.
Today my Convection counter oven. I saw it on a TV commercial and my big Microwave does not bake as well with the browning is missing. It is a big microwave and I used it daily, many times a day. I always made my own oatmeal concoction and I eat that and I can go for 5 or 6 hours. I will experiment in the next few days.
I tried to do the Fruit and Vegetables Challenge but I can make all my food I was taught well in UK The way the rules and as you know I have not the grasp of computers so I loved the food and I just cannot find the way it could get to the challenge. I will do one week and I will quit I am embarrassed when Three days just one comment and it came out three times.
I am doing better I am changing my food and I do feel better.
Can you ask your DH which computer lap top does BIG LETTERS ON THE KEYBOARD. I would love to buy a computer for his birthday. It is this week but I remember there was a computer for seniors but I have had not found one. My computer is losing my checks and comments get lost. I had half a dozen streaks yesterday and now today. emoticon emoticon emoticon I am glad you are sitting put in your pretty house.

It is almost at midnight. I and DH have re-arranged our bedroom. I am tired in my shoulders and back. I did not start till 10 am so I am going to be frazzled and then I can get to sleep.

Are you still want to move. .I think I have only photos and your house is so nice.

Glad that you got your glasses and had your acupuncture appointment. We didnít have too much ice.

The house we liked best had a double garage and every else Ipoh the main floor including the master bedroom and an extra bedroom. Then it had two bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. It was on a slab too. I donít care if thereís no basement as long as I have a storage room and a place for Daveís computer and stuff. That house was a bit too far away from all the activities we do. We will stay here and make some changes.

Yesterday was busy. I got everything out of my computer/craft/sewing room. I painted half of the room. Today I finished painting and have started to put some things back. Somethings are just going out. If I havenít found a need for them them maybe someone Elsa would like them.

Dave is making pizza tonight so I donít have to cook. He also brought up a large bookcase with shelves and I can put everything away that I want to keep.

Our snow is gone but it was a dark day. I am really tiered. I use to just do things and keep going but my arms and legs are done.

I went to look at a house a distant from us. The house is a nice house but it is a Double wide on an acre PLUS. They have a double garage. They have 5 other structures. It looks like a very nice house but it is on a slab. No basement. It is a long way to school and their work but they have to do what they have to look around again.

Sorry it has been a long day. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It was another band of outages as the branches were thick with ice. More branches came down but so far we are hoping no more come down.
The roof is covered with ice and when we have the attic gets a least bit and the ice cracks and Emily our GD keeps asking if it is safe.
The Chihuahua and both dogs are slipping on the ice. The Chihuahua was trying to bathroom and she was freezing and she tried to walk on three legs. I have brought her in and she is in my fleece jumper and she is at the back of my big computer chair. I here her shivering. Perhaps our son will keep her under the covers. Pat in Maine.
I did Acupuncture and both of us glasses and my pair that was broken next day and my usual lady has been there for along time so they will decide if the lens are scratch protection but these were really bad some one stood on the glasses. My Titanium frames were very expensive. It is very light and it is flexible so that I can move it around they are so comfortable. Pat in Maine.
I hope your lady is on time and time and the roads are clear. Be safe !!!!!

Oh my! How frightening. You were so fortunate to not be hurt. I an so glad that the windshield did not break. All your shoveling was a big job too! emoticon Your weather and ours is much the same today. We have ice and some snow over that. Dave was up early and plowed our driveway. He cleared a path for me to the bird feeder.

We have to drive back to Latrobe PA to pick up Carol at 12:15 pm. She just called and her plane will be on time. We are leaving early to be sure we can get there. The highway I 79 was closed for a while last night it was so bad. I am hoping that we can get there.

I have my computer/craft/sewing room almost ready to paint. Tomorrow I hope to get it half done or more and finish up on Saturday.

Stay safe and warm.

We are in the high twenties. Freezing rain over a few inches of snow.
I had to use my garden spade and I use it every year.
We have a snow blower -that's no good with ice..
No snow shovel goes over the ice.
The garden spade slides under the ice and breaks it up and then the snow shovel will pick up the slabs and throw them in to the garden snow.
Snow is easy but chunks of ice are much longer to move since they slide on the big shovel and they slide off.
I did not much of the driveway and I have over 8,000 steps So it is GOOD !
All the trees are covered with ice. The wind in the trees are like little bells and when the 25 miles wind made many power outages.
I was driving to an errand and as I drove down hill a Semi-Truck going the other way and the thick ice dropped on my windshield. The noise was awful and I put my hands on my face till it was over. I was sure the windshield was broken. The ice blocks were on the windshield and I had no way to drive. I put my gas pedal and some of the large pieces slid off and I thought it was cracked. There were cars behind me so I used the wiper so I could drive out off the road and got out to see the damage. THERE WAS NONE. HOWEVER THE LOUD BANG ON THE ROOF I WAS CERTAIN I WAS IN AN ACCIDENT. THE CAR BEHIND WAS PATIENT-THANK GOODNESS. I sat in the car for a few minutes and got out to see any damage. A few scratches down the driver door but I was only shaking.

My glasses are in and I am going to Acupuncture. Tomorrow. Pat in Maine

You are right to be careful about falling. I have to be careful too. Several if my friends have fallen. Our bones donít hold up as strong and the bruising can be very bad.

We took daughter, Carol, to the airport yesterday. There was an accident and traffic was so backed up. My husband pulled out a map and we took back roads to get her there on time. The flight crew was delayed in the backed up traffic. Then Dave and I went to lunch. We took an alternate route home just to see how to get to the airport without using the big highway.

Today was a funeral for an elderly fellow from our church. I t took all morning so I am just now getting to do Spark things.

I hope your new glasses help. I know my new ones took a bit of time to get use to them.

Rest up and have a happy day.

We were iced in. The plough went up our Cul-de-sac but the small truck with the sand and salt went past our street so it was real ice. we had nowhere to go and so after the DIL was in
Fred got up and I went back to bed.
Today have only walking about the house doing vacuuming and now I am on the computer and it is late.
Both of us have to go back to Waterville again but I told Fred we can get our glasses and I will have my Acupuncture. I have not gone to the Y the others did not go too. The pathway goes very steep and it is a long drive to fall again. I will ask if I can come in to the back area where the wheel chair people. We have had two people fall before Xmas.
I am getting very few spark points and I am not feeling great. I will have my annual physical in mid February. I did not get anything I can read, it is in some code. My previous Dr would explain everything.

I canít stand the niacin flush at all. I am glad you have found the right mix of meds. emoticon

My insurance has a program called Silver Sneakers. It pays when I get Togo it isnít a membership. It only pays for each time. The place I go is big but quiet. Lots of older women and older men. Some young too. It is never crowded. There is a pool and many go to that. The place offers Therapy for all kinds of problems. Upstairs is Dr. Postís office. He is an orthopedic doctor and a specialist in sport injuries. The therapy part downstairs off the gym is run by a wonderful therapist and his wife. They bought the practice and gym several years ago. emoticon emoticon emoticon

We have a generator because Dave has a lot of electric tools. He needed a way to use them out at the edge of our land. We have been glad to have it when the power goes off.

Today we drove daughter, Carol to the airport. It is in Latrobe PA. Then we went to the music store to pick up a couple books that my friends. They ordered them in the fall. The books came in and no one was going up there. Then we had lunch at Bob Evans. After that we drove around just seeing what else was there. It was a fun day.

Tonight is our Kiwanis meeting so I need to feed the cats and then we will go.

Take care

I could not tolerate Niacin, Fred did not also. He did Statins. Fred has a stent in his heart a long time ago. He does it every day-he is good taking meds and using his C-Pap Machine. He sleeps 9 hours these days mine is much less these days.

The bully Dr said~~~~ Niacin 500 mg- I cannot tolerate the flush so I do the FLUSH FREE. It must have worked for me.

He also said Lecithin I use 1200 m.g.

Red Yeast Rice 600 m.g.

That was the "Cocktail' and it has helped me. I still not have my numbers, We have freezing rain so we will stay in tomorrow. Maybe I can do some work.

Well done Dave, we are in AARP. I go but Fred is not. The small room with a lot of people and he has to stay by me. We only have a few we know. Most of them are all young professionals mostly women. They are always going to the legislators, I think they are state workers but they are very knowledgeable and very outgoing.

I am already late after making food for the freezer. We do not have a generator, we are hoping the RV generator will start but I do have a nice L.L.Bean Propane stove so I can cook on it and it also has a gas light. We rarely use the light because if it is cold the house will give off fumes. Cooking is off and on but the light used to stay on too long and I dislike the fumes.
It is great you have a buddy, I did not go back to the Y. They have a lot of young men and some ladies and when they drop the dumbbells on to the floor and the crash gives my ears a jolt. After 30 minutes I have to leave to a class with the others. I do the yoga seated so I have given up. We always had an old YMCA and the rooms were very high. The new 'Y' is small and sometimes when we walk in the circle around the strong men and ladies, it really assaults my ears so I did not join for this season. I use the Gazelle.

Pat in Maine. WELL DONE!!. Keep it up. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We have a stash of Duracell Batteries we buy bulk in Sam's.IT WORKS.!

We donít take statin drugs either. My husband takes niacin tablets twice a day. I hope you get what you need. I am so glad to hear about your provider. He sounds like a good knowledgeable medical person. When they are too busy or have to rush the doctor is not working in your best interest.


Today I head for the gym and meet my friend. Dave is heading out to tax class. He works as an AARP tax volunteer. They start doing taxes for people free of charge now in February.

More tomorrow.

My very young provider, he is not a Doctor. He is called a provider. He has given me medication, he is very young and he is an IRISH man. I do not know if he was educated in US or Eire. He takes his time-not like the bully Dr.
I feel fine when I talk to him. I was supposed to have a physical and the snow plow was in a
narrow bridge so we were waiting to get himself out of the mess he was in. I could not see. I and others just have to get his plow stuck in the side. That was why I was late.
I have to say my Bully young man-a real Dr and he told me about the cholesterol statins. I do not medication so he told me to use Red Rice yeast, Lethicin and niacin. I will check it out. I am late.
I cannot tolerate statins but I have been very conscientious with keeping up in my nutrition tracker too. I have much less walking because I have fallen too many times.
I will look up that or I will ask Fred to ask about the "COCKTAIL" I buy my supplements at the organic shop.

I am sleeping some days in the day time. I never did till about the new year. Our son goes to work early and so the dogs come up stairs. Fred sleeps ill 9am because I go to bed at midnight doing my sparking after dinner.
It is almost there. Pat in Maine. Sorry (((HUGS)) Pat

Tjhis is the third try to send this. It just wouldn't post and disappeared. So I am trying again.
We got to 50 degrees today and it felt warm after the minus degree days.

I am so glad you had a good time and got out for fun and relaxation I went out a short time on Monday and then stayed home all week until this morning.

YOur doctor seems nice and I am so glad you are getting all the information I don't understand why they didn't give you a copy. I hope they help you with problems. emoticon that you got the cholesterol down. That is wonderful . I have that problem and take meds for it. It is hard to get it sown.

I know some about the coconut oil. I don't know about it working on skin. Is there a lotion? I sue is occasionally for cooking but it is 90% saturated fat and that is bad for me. One of my friends uses it all the time. Let me know how it does for you.

My yearly check up is in March. I am hoping we both get a good report and that 20018 is a better year than last year. Think positive and choose to be happy is my goal.

Today after church we had the church annual meeting and then a spaghetti dinner. i don't have to cook tonight so I have been able to keep trying to post this note.

Hope you have a great day and a good week ahead.

We are melting in Maine. Augusta is about 40 degrees and we have a very stiff wind from the South.
Fred and I went to see The Post it began a tiny bit slow but it was definitely great for us. The Vietnam war was on and our sons were just beginning school. We did not have much history and watching the Movie was a long lesson about the Papers. I loved it.
Glenn Close was excellent in her role in the Newspaper industry of the time and I had a bit of a clue about the papers and it gave me to understand a lot out of the time. I was thinking to see it again and I will or wait till Net Flix.

My Dr gave me all of my blood work. They did work up liver and kidneys and I was surprised since my mother had an odd kidney and sometimes she was ill. I never knew much about it and the very young Dr is giving me so much of the Data. He was surprised my Cholesterol went down the LDL 30 points. The computers at the hospital could not give me a copy. I know he wrote about the itches and I had watched the Dr OZ show. The dogs come upstairs to my bedroom door between 6 or 7 DH sleeps till 9a.m. I have just started watching his show and he talked about Coconut Oil. I bought it for cooking and he said it was great for dry skin. I have tried so many lotions and some make it worse. Some chemicals I am sensitive to and I always use DOVE sensitive bar soap before I came to US I bought a big box of individual bars from UK.. My first super market I walked in U.S.and found it almost immediately and I was shocked and felt embarrassed thinking everything different would be a difference. I will have my annual examination in mid February.
Hugs Pat in Maine, I am eating well and I have lost a few pounds. The may come back in a few weeks.
Enjoy your ushering.
Now I have your example. I want to clear the clutter from the Drawers, Closets and everything will go to Goodwill Store. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sunshine and then rain today. I am still cleaning, , organizing, and tossing things awatpy. I hope to have a lot more done today.

We still have ice on the sidewalk. It doesnít get sunshine. I hope today melts it.

Tomorrow we usher. There is the church annual meeting and a lunch afterwards. The youth group in trying to raise miney to go to the summer conference. So I donít cook tomorrow. Just need to plan something today.

Hope you are better and have a good day today. You have had a busy start to this year.

Worried about you. They were too long getting you through the blood draw. Hope today is better and the doctor can help you. That is a lot for a person to have.

My husband has a meeting today at noon. I am planning to get several things done while he is gone. It is sunshine and a bit warmer today.

Yesterday I straightened most of my sewing area, today more and then separate pictures. I will send them to my family and some are my friends. Too much stuff.

Take care and get to feeling good.

I did my fast and afterwards I had a bellyache all day long. In and out the bathroom. I might have found a pound or so but I ate some dinner all veg with 2 ounce Yummy Fresh salmon.

I am feeling a bit off but I have to the Dr. -He brought my appointment three weeks early so I will have to get up and be his first patient. He should have all the lab works.

You sure had a lot to deal with at that last program. I thought it would be a pleasant time. Bless you for keeping going. emoticon emoticon You did it all by yourself.
I am sure that helped make you very tired.

Today Dave had some errands but I stayed at home. I will go out and add bird seed but I donít want to drive anywhere.

I hope you get information from the doctor from the work tomorrow. You have a lot to deal with plus the cold weather. Hope you are better soon.

Today I am not pushing to get going. This is a day of just catching up on reading. Enjoying the morning.

Stay safe and warm

Today it is icy and then snow on top. My bird feeder as ice covered. I brought it in and cleaned and cramped out the frozen seed. The birds have clad out the ground fed Nd thevfeder is half gone. So back out with more fed.

Today I baked a spice cake and brownies. We are driving to Hedgesvilleb W V tomorrow. We met my niece and her partner. They have a summer place in a lake. They are bringing my brother and his wife. My daughter is going too. It will be a cold day but we will enjoy visiting.

Dave cleaned the driveway but he was sliding a bit. The big propane truck came and filled our tank. The driver was happy that our driveway was clear.

The cats are snug curled up sleeping. They donít even move when the door opens.

I understand about eyes and poor vision. I am hoping my macular degeneration stays slow. My new glasses helped some. I hope you lenses help you. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I will try to get on line early tomorrowís. We will leave about 10 am and get home about 6 pm or sr.

Off to the dentist this morning. He is a great person and grew up next door to me. He and his brother would come over to see what I was baking. His mother and I still get together for coffee at Panera's the first Friday of the month. Or the next one if we can't get there on that Friday.

Hope you have a great day.

Sorry to be so late. Yesterday my friend came and we baked 144 cupcakes for her mother's birthday. Her mom is in a nursing home. Today we iced them and she took them for the afternoon snack time and everyone was there for punch, coffee, and cupcakes. emoticon



Helen was here to stay nights this week as she had meetings everyday. That kept me busy and.with the cupcakes I had no extra time today. until now.

I have gotten a few more things straightened up and back in place since all the December things too. I go to the dentist tomorrow for a cleaning and check up. I don't think I have anything that is a problem there.

Today was warmer and the sun heated it more. It was so nice I went without a coat to the bird feeder. The cats looked and walked out on to the porch. I was glad it was so nice;

Hope your snow is melting too.
