The car show was a big success, we ran out of food so we closed the concession early. Twice as many people this year than last year. We will have to plan bigger for next year and then we will probably have left overs like we did last year.
I was so tired but think I have finally got rested up. We have a gospel meeting this week and then pot luck Sunday at my house. Another busy week.

It's always sad when one of our four-legged family members pass. Praying for comfort for you and the family.

Marlene glad to hear you plan to drive. LOL

Shelley glad you got some relief.

My Sweet Sheltie died this week. She died on her 17th birthday. She will be missed but glad she isn't suffering anymore. DS is coming and bringing his German Shepherd for me to keep for a couple weeks. That will help my puppy feel better!

I was up at six and now have 100 cookies baked for the concession on Saturday for the car show. A lady donated the cookies that she had in her freezer. 9 boxes and 3 tubs. I only baked two and half boxes. They are already made into cookies so really easy to put in the oven and take out. Another lady and I will bag them later this week in 2 or 3 a baggie. We will have 50 bags of two and may be enough but if now we can bake some more. Now the frozen cookie dough is in my freezer. Dangerous? I hope I remember they belong to the city. We are having an open house memorial day in our new community building, so will probably have cookies there, too.
I have six cushions made for church benches, I made 7 a couple weeks ago. The church bench is only 12 inches deep and the cushions we bought are 16x16. They are now perfect but will look nice. The benches are hard and very uncomfortable.
I need to run to the grocery this morning and then home to fix lunch for my son.

Well said, Marlene!
Glad you've been kept safe in the midst of storms.
I've woken up a bit dizzy these past two days - ear congestion. Prayer and Sudafed brought relief. I was able to walk to CVS, and later did my 3 video seated routines.

Marlene you are right we don't rest and rest in prayer often enough. The Lord has us in the Hallow of His Hand. We try to fix our problems instead of depending on the Lord to show Himself strong on our behalf.

Getting more done around here. Lots of things to do but am glad to see progress.

Shelley glad you girls had some time out by yourselves!

Permission to Rest
Mark 1:32–35

Additional Scripture Readings: Psalm 46:10; Zechariah 2:13

Many of us tend to believe that the answer to our problems is to work harder, push further and achieve more. When was the last time we gave ourselves permission to rest?

Jesus shows us the reality of how to balance hard work and intense rest. In Mark 1:32–34, after Jesus had healed Peter’s mother-in-law and had driven out an evil spirit from a man in the synagogue, he met all the people of the town, healing many and driving out demons. These “extra” events probably took him the better part of the night. No one could accuse Jesus of kicking back on the job.

But look at the other side of the story. The very next morning Jesus got up early and went away to pray, to be alone and away from the demands of the ministry.

And what about us? We all need rest. We need to occasionally sit down with a cup of tea and ignore the chaos around us. We need to hand over the little ones to our husbands and go for a walk. Don’t believe the lie that overwork works. Believe Jesus.

Storms rolled in and we were in a tornado watch. I had things to take to the shelter by the back door. but never had to go. DGS called and said we would try for a different time for me to babysit.. There was a small tornado probably 5 miles south of here and a little east. It turned and went east and away from me. Pretty stressful for awhile.
DS and three of his grand kids were here for dinner. Then they went to see Phog, he is DS's grand kid, too. I still have not gotten the kitchen cleaned. But I did run the dishwasher, just a few things that did not fit in the dishwasher so maybe tomorrow I will hand wash what is left or start another load in the dishwasher.
I am tired, time, only a little after eight but I am seriously thinking of going to bed. Still thunder rumbling in the distance. Lots of rain and some hail but no wind. We really need the rain.

I have not been posting here for several days. Seems I am busy. I am early this morning as I am going to go take care of a couple great grand sons. I will have to load one year old Henry and drive to pick up his older brother at preschool at noon. My biggest concern is getting him down the steps as I have enough trouble doing steps, always afraid I will fall. I hope I can lead him by the hand and let him walk down the steps behind me.
Yesterday was a meeting with our telephone company at the community building. Then to the bank to sign papers. I went to friendship meals and then came home.
I have been working in the yard, we had a nice rain earlier this week but we need more. My daughter came and helped me plant coral bells. They are a perennial. Then went out to the farm and dug up hardy flocks. I love flowers and trees. Trees take so long but I want lots of trees in my yard.
More rain in the forecast, we really need it. Ponds are dry, crops and grass need water.

Glad you guys came out well.
Sunday I took a day off from exercise (besides I was sore from Saturday!) And yesterday I was downright lazy. I mean, I set up the computer with the exercise videos, but I just didn't want to. So this morning I though, I reeeeally have to do this. My weight is up, and I just can't let it continue to climb. But my knees do hurt. So I did the seated workout - cardio, core, and resistance.
I also went to Aldi's today for bread, milk, and a few other things. Last night I was so-o-o craving junk food, but thank goodness was too lazy to go to the corner convenience store! Then this morning I breakfasted on the muffins my DD had made - steel-cut oat flour, flax, apples, and walnuts, so they were very healthy and nutritious. So when I passed all the snacks, while I DID pause and consider chips and cookies and such - I PASSED them! It's ALWAYS best to eat before you shop, and I know the more I eat really healthy stuff, the less I crave. Shel

No tornadoes not even any rain. Went south of me and north of me in Kansas. Still waiting on rain.

I was up early this morning. I have a batch of cookies baked and another pan of fruit bars. Funeral tomorrow and our town will furnish coffee, tea and snacks after the grave side service. I did not know the lady but sort of a self appointed committee person I am in charge this time of calling people.

Birthday party for Henry today with lunch at his house. He was one the last day of March but things have been so busy that no party until today.

Marlene, I hoe you escape all extreme weather. I think that's one thing I like about being in Rochester, NY - we might get hit with heavy snow, even ice; and the tail end of a hurricane and some high winds. But for the most part we don't get such violent storms as they do in the Midwest.

I'm trying to get back in the habit of exercising, especially after seeing my weight up again. Today I am breaking a Simmons vid up, doing 10 minutes at a time with a 20 minute rest in between, till I build up my stamina.

Hello Marlene and Shelley,
Kids are here from out of town. We are having a lovely time. DS brought his dog, the one we kept while he was in training. My dog and his are having such a wonderful time together. They run and play and then crash for naps and then run and play some more!! ;-)

Shelley love the pics

Hope to be back in a few days!

Stopping by to let you know that I have not forgotten you. Just seems my life is busy. Today I have a club meeting with a club I just joined thinking it would give me something to do. Think I need something to do?? We are having lunch at Friendship Meals then to the library for the meeting.

We are being bombarded with severe weather forecasts. Not sure what to do about that. It looks like where I live is on the edge of the severe weather. Oklahoma says 3-4 pm. Kansas does not really give me a time line, just what is happening in Wichita. I live on the border so kind of left out of the loop. Just have to be prepared.

On Sunday we ALL went to church - my son-in-law-ish took his 3 (my "bonus" grands) to "his" church (the one he chooses on those rare occasions he goes) and my daughter came with her 2 with me. Here's son-in-law with the 3



and the other two



all in Easter finery.

Marlene I agree 100%. It surprises me how "priorities" change as I get older. ;-)

I saw a lovely post on FB.

"In the Garden, Jesus Christ decided He'd rather go to Hell for you than to go to Heaven without you!" Isn't that a great way to put it!

Hope Everyone has a great day!

No egg hunting here, my great grands all had somewhere else to be, so did my kids, and grand kids. I spent the day alone but Easter Sunday is no different from any other Sunday. We need to remember Jesus every day not just one or two special days a year.

This verse was on my daily devotional for Moms.

Matthew 5:43-48New International Version (NIV)
Love for Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Marlene, what a delightful picture!

Sorry I've been MIA. The loss, however temporary, of the SS benefit threw me for a loop. I was going to have one more PT session on Tues, but I cancelled it because of the $15 copay. Now I have to urge myself to work out all on my own. I think it will be easier when the kids go back to school next week.

On a positive note, when I did the bridges this morning, I noticed I could lift my hind end a bit higher than before!

The wind is supposed to be here tomorrow and lower temperatures. I have some plants out but I don't think it is supposed to get that cold tonight.

I am still really tired from my trip yesterday, so I think I will turn in early.

I was gone all day yesterday. I had some business to take care of. My daughter went with me and we had a great day. I read a lot of paperback books so on our way out of town I took a bunch to a retirement facility and exchanged them for other ones. They had a lot of the books that I read. I only read the good clean ones that do not have sex in them. I don't know if the ones I picked up were ones that I have not read but if they are they then will go to the thrift store. I also buy them at the thrift stores when I find them much cheaper than new ones. On the way home we took a detour to see, Henry my great grand baby He is one today but not having a birthday party until a couple weeks. His poor mom is overwhelmed, she is expecting in July and having pre-partum blues. She was much better when we went by.

Tomorrow I am going with my son to find a house to put down on the farm. It will be quite a trip and we will be gone all day.

I better get my Bible reading done before I get side tracked.

Sunday morning, soon will be off to church. Yesterday was a beautiful day. Today is a little cooler but it is still March. At least the wind is not blowing, two more day to see if March goes out like a lamb as the old saying goes.

My daughter and her husband came yesterday and planted some trees for me. I need to buy big trees but these were not that big. I want them to enjoy while I am still on this earth. I love trees.

Not doing much today, I may go work in the yard some. My son in law is going to put blocks around my flower beds to hopefully keep out the Bermuda grass. It is a beautiful day so far.

Hello Friends, Am expecting company tomorrow through Sunday. Not sure how much I will be able to check in. Hope I can some!

Marlene I need to get out in my yard and get some work done too. Has to go on the list for next week! ;-) I am getting more done by keeping a running list. ;-)

Shelley it is a cute cottage. I love being near water. Good for you for exercising and doing cardio. What cardio can you do if you are being easy on your hip? Do you have to walk a certain amount each day? Dear Aunt did after her placement. She was 87 when she had her surgery and did so amazingly well. She went back to live on her own and it is almost 5 yrs ago already.

Daddy'sgirl, that's my friend's cottage by the lake.

Last week I picked up some greenware from a friend of mine and this morning I cleaned some to fire with my hand-sculpted things, so I'll have some projects for the grandkids to paint over break.

Yesterday I had PT so I'm going easy on myself today - though I do want to get in some cardio.

Not able to mow the grass today other folks stopped by and the schedule got all rearranged. ;-)

Daddys girl, how nice to see green grass! The old brown stuff is showing through here. Had a dusting of new snow to wake up to, but not too bad. And I'm seeing robins!

Played Scrabble with my friends today. We talk about work and family and everything else under the sun. I missed the last couple of games for some reason Anyway, we planned the next months' "tournaments." In May and June we'll meet at the one friend's cottage on Lake Ontario. It gets breezy, but it's pleasant out there.

Yesterday I didn't exercise much since it was the day after PT and that always leaves me aching. But I did some walking about at the grocery store, and Abi and I went to my school because one of the kids was in part of the spring assembly. We arrived in time for me to see MY class getting ready to go up - I was so glad! And the teacher I work with was glad to see me. But I'll finish the full 12 weeks off, to lessen chance of dislocating this new hip!

That is good news, great for you!!

I guess I never got on here yesterday, I did not even spin the wheel now starting over with the count. Sun is shining today, it was chilly and damp yesterday but we did get some much needed rain. I had to get out and go unlock the Community Building. Tomorrow night is our co-op annual meeting. And they will use the Community Building, they are expecting around 130. It will be catered by a Mennonite restaurant in Yoder, Kansas. The food will be wonderful.

Nice pic, Marlene!
Today my surgeon was impressed with my recovery, walking without cane or walker after only 6 weeks. He's glad I'm taking the full 12 weeks off from work though, so's not to risk bending over too far and dislocating the new joint. AND - we scheduled surgery to replace my left knee, for the end of June, so I can recover during summer vacation! emoticon

Thanks for the wishes of a safe trip Saturday. We had a wonderful trip and was gone 12 hours. We had a great time at the 50th. I saw lots of nieces and their families. Even my singing was not bad and I had lots of compliments. I was exhausted when I got home. Yesterday church meeting twice and company in the afternoon. I got on here late and was just too tired to post.
Today Directv people came to get my dish relined..Now to have television again. It was out for a week.

I grew up not 30 miles from where I live now. The trip was to Topeka Kansas where my niece and her husband live. 300 miles away.It wasn't over yet but the fat lady sang anyway.

Hello Friends!
Shelley great pics! Yes you do look like your sister. ;-) DD and I are often asked if we are sisters. I feel sorry for my DD as she surely does not look like my sister but my daughter!! She is glad we favor so much.
That is a cute story of your poodle and your sister! Amazing her scent was so close yours too.

Marlene how nice to be called your sister's name! ;-) Have a good trip to your former home and to the wedding anniversary! Good for you for singing the special again! What a special gift to them!!

Hope Everyone has a great weekend! I am looking forward to one!!

When you go to reply, you can see "add an image" is a new option.

I love to tell the story of when we used to have miniature poodles. My younger sister - the one in the previous pic - came to visit, and Franky our youngest poodle strolled up to her and put his front paws on her, wagging, and she petted him, conversing with our Mom (who lived with me at the time.) Then I started coming downstairs, talking, and Franky looked up at me, then did a double take at my sister. Like, "HEY, YOU'RE not my Mom!" Instantly dropped his paws and started barking furiously at her.

Here's an old picture of my son with our "pack" - Franky is the larger silver one on the right.

Sometimes I get called by my youngest sister's name, makes me feel so good. She is skinny and does not have white hair but is also 10 years younger than me. I used to color my hair until I discovered after getting a perm that I had gray hair. I have not colored it since and my hair is natural curly so don't get perms anymore either.

I am reading daily bible reading on the CHRONOLOGICAL bible on Biblegateway.com Have you ever checked out bible gateway? It is a wonderful site. You can read the Bible in several versions and also languages. It has a box with drop down under study. It has audio Bible that you can listen to even when you are doing something else on the computer.

Today I am going out to where I lived before I moved to this small town. We had wild cats in the barn and someone feeds them but I take out table scraps when I can. Probably feeding the skunks and coyotes, too?? Going to take a long trip to Topeka tomorrow to a 50th Wedding celebration. I sang at their wedding and am going to try to sing the same song now 50 years later.

How do you put those pictures on your message??

Got my hair cut, Pixie, so short there's not much of the hair color left. Didn't have energy to color it today after the workout I had at PT, but I'll get to it tomorrow after the kids go to school. As I looked at myself in the mirror, I thought, Egad, I look like my sister. Here's a pic of her. After I color my hair, I'll post a pic, and you tell me. My Mom would always attribute our looks to strong genes on HER side.

Happy Monday Ladies!
100% chance of rain here today and we are getting it. Sun is supposed to shine all the rest of the week. Hurray!! ;-)
Had good services at church yesterday. So good to be together after we missed Wednesday night due to the weather.
Baby has a gassy tummy today Poor little guy is uncomfortable.

Marlene how nice you have grands that spend the night with you some.
Did the driver of the trash truck survive? Sorry so many blogs were lost but glad they are being rebuilt.
I am watching closely for the repair trucks. If it isn't done in 30 days you can be sure I will call. :-) Gas leaks aren't anything to fool around with!

Shelley glad you are getting warmer weather too and will be about to get out and about! Getting hair done makes one feel so much better! Congrats on doing PT so regularly! Way to go!!

Off to exercise and to get to work on my to do list!

Didn't get to church yesterday, but with temps supposing to get above freezing all this week, I expect to be able to get out of the driveway by next Sunday. Tomorrow I have another PT appt., and THIS time I expect to make it - AND get my hair done.

It has been pretty busy around here. With the time change I was able to go back to church yesterday evening because it was still light out driving home. I drive about 20 miles to the building I attend on Sunday night. The one I go to on Sunday morning is five miles out in the country. I had two great grands stay the night Saturday night after attending a birthday party for another great grand. Then after church meeting yesterday morning parents came after the two and stayed for awhile.Now I am getting ready to go get my hair and nails done so off I go again. Town meeting tonight and on and on it goes

The weather has been really nice lately and that is a blessing. How scary about the gas line, the town that I shop that is a very small town lost most of one side of Main street when a trash truck was going down the alley and hit a hole and busted a gas line. Caught several businesses on that side of the block on fire. Lost between one on each end. Finally after several years they are rebuilding two story buildings, it is exciting to see them going up and wondering if there will be businesses to occupy them.

Marlene and Shelley glad to see you are both doing well. Hope you both have a great Lord's Day!

Yesterday morning the fire dept was here twice. DD and I could smell natural gas at our back door but we live in an all electric neighborhood. 40 yrs ago when we moved here the gas company told me there were no gas lines in our alley at all. Come to find out we do have a gas line that stops 4 doors away. Where it stops is where the leak is. The dense cold air was keeping the gas from dissipating so that was why I could smell it. Thankfully it will be fixed within 30 days but most of all it was found before serious trouble was caused.
We are getting more rain for which we are most grateful!

I'm expecting an old friend (we spent several years of our childhood in the same neighborhood) to come by in a bit to get a special order - a little sculpture of his dear departed doggy. Possibly some time during the weekend another customer will pick up some special order cats. It's nice to have these little bits of income. Especially because it frees me to bless others more.

I couldn't pull out of the driveway yesterday! I had to cancel both appointments. So disappointed. BUT, I still did my new strength exercises, morning and evening. I'll be glad when we get a thaw!

It got really cold again but only a light sleet and now it is gone. It is supposed to be in the mid 50s today. I was going to town yesterday but DD said they were coming so I stayed home. When they finally came they probably stayed 10 minutes. Today I am going to be gone to town. I have a friend that has directv and does not know how to use the remote. So going to do my good deed for the day. Then I will go to friendship meals and the grocery store before I come home

Way to go Shelley!! You will feel so much better with it done! Hope weather cooperates and you can go Sunday!

We woke up to 4 -5 ins of snow today. The kids had spent the night so they could leave for work when the roads were safe without having to bring the baby to me first. It was a good plan. Roads were safe at about 11 so we had a nice breakfast together before they had to go in and everyone got to sleep in a bit first.
Sun came out and warmed to about 40 so quite a bit of the snow melted.

Today I go for my second outpatient PT. Afterwards I'm going to treat myself to a haircut. Originally I was going to wait till just before I would return to work, but since I am allowed to drive, I want to get it cut and then color it afresh and GO TO CHURCH on Sunday!

This morning is relatively warm - in the upper 20's!

I've already glazed my stuff that came out of the kiln yesterday. The kids have to paint their things. But I may end up just firing mine for now and do theirs in a separate firing. I have people eagerly awaiting special orders.

You can read about my outing in yesterday's Spark blog!

My yarn arrived yesterday and I started crocheting twin girl's blanket. She's excited about it! Shel

Shelley hope the drive went well and the grocery shopping was done. We got ours done today too. Leaves tomorrow open for DS to come and help clear somethings out of DH's office. I am concerned I will toss something useful to the boys. I do look forward to being able to use that room for something other than storage!
How nice DGD helped you load the kiln!!

Marlene glad it is warming and your snow is melting. All our ice and snow melted yesterday. Wednesday they say we will have more ice pellets or snow. Am preparing to stay in if need be!

Blessings to you all!! March came in like a Lion and hopefully will go out like a Lamb and stay that way!! ;-)

We had a beautiful 6 inch snow, now it is warming up and melting, so good for the winter crops. I have been homebound since Wednesday. Today I am walking with snow boots on to the mail box.

Just loaded the kiln with my granddaughter's help.

DD Abi suggested we go together to my PT on Tues.and go shopping after. I will try to drive - the PA gave me the go ahead if I can LIFT and move my foot (it's the right leg, so of course it does all the footwork). Of course - we're out of laundry soap NOW...I hope we all have enough clean undies and socks at the very least!

Morning Friends! Isn't it great being a Grandma? My precious Grandson is 3 mths old now! Time moves so quickly! Love having so much time with him!

Marlene so glad Henry loves being with you. How fun he is going to have a baby sister. It will all work out fine!

Shelley hope you get back to Ireland again to see your Grandson! Glad you were able to see him as a baby too!

Eleven - how wonderful! I have to wait for the "greats" - my oldest granddaughter will be 13 in June. Don't want to rush her!
I was encouraged when I got on the scale this morning - another drop in weight, wince I've been able to do a little Sweatin' with Richard Simmons.

I don't take it personally, I just get flustered when I can not please him. He is the happiest baby that I have ever seen. He was just angry yesterday but after his nap he clung to me.Later he was fussy so I got him a bottle and I sat and watched a movie while he slept in my arms. He needs to get away from the bottle with new baby coming about three months after he turns one. I should feel honored that my grand daughter in law brings him for me to keep. She says even her own mother does not know what to do with him. I think maybe I have a friend for life?? His daddy is my only grandson and he has always gave me hugs and still does. I have a very loving family.

I have another granddaughter expecting in August. Her youngest will be 2 in May and he is a mommy baby, too. But he does not have a bottle anymore. They does not want to know if the new baby is girl or boy. They want to be surprised, she says. They live in England so I can't spoil him. That will make me have eleven great grands.

Marlene, sounds like a little separation anxiety to me - don't take it personally!

When I visited my year-old grandson in Ireland last year, my DD advised me not to rush him, to let him warm up to me. And I'm all for that. It was such a short week with the little guy. I'd like to return another year when he's older and will be able to remember me. Shel

I had baby Henry today, he will be one the last day of March. And will have a baby sister in July. He is a mommy baby so not sure what is going to happen. He gave me a bad time after he first got here. He did not want me to hold him or put him down. He is walking and was running to the window crying. His mom said he was mad at her was the reason. I finally put him in the crib and he went to sleep and slept a couple hours. He was fine when he got up so I am thinking he was just wanting to take a nap, maybe he was angry with his mom for leaving him, too.

Daddys, yes, I have my own kiln. It's small and plugs into a regular outlet. I used to have another as well, but it bit the dust. I hope this one lasts!

Made an appt. for my first outpatient PT - the dr. gave me a Rx. Maybe I'll be able to work out on some machines! emoticon

Hello Friends, Still winter here today but traffic is moving some. ;-) Don't think I will get out yet. :-) Expecting more ice and snow tonight and tomorrow! ;-)

Shelley thanks for the info. So do you have a kiln of your own? Children and I used to do some ceramics at a city park recreation center. One DS still has some pieces of a chess set not finished. I'd love to finish them for him.

Marlene so thankful you are being cautious. More power to your Bil's Mom!! Bless her!! Hope she is ok and will use her walker now. A walker is a friend not an enemy or shameful companion. ;-)

My nephew came by returning a monitor that I had loaned him until he could get one for his self. I was glad to get it back as I needed to update my accounts on Quickbooks. I don't have that computer online as I don't trust my stuff being open for hackers. My nephew cleaned a path to the garage for me but it is so cold I have not been out.

The sun is shining but it is still really cold. I am hoping that the snow will melt a lot even if it is cold. Tomorrow I told my sister we would come and help them clear out her mother in law's apartment. Her MIL fell and broke a hip and has been in rehab now going to the nursing home. She is 96 and as sharp as a tack. She tries to walk without the walker and fell in the night. She did not tell the nurses and somehow managed to get back in bed with black and blue skin. My sister's DH goes to see his mother every day some times more than once. I am going with my DD and her DH to help my sis and bro in law.

Have a great day. emoticon Marlene

Daddy's, yes they are fired. When they are dry clay ("greenware" I use a pint called underglaze, which is not shiny. I fire them at cone 04; then I put on a gloss glaze and fire them again at cone 06.

Marlene, I don't blame you for not wanting to fall! I am in no rush to go out myself except when absolutely necessary!

Today for the first time in what seems AGES I did a small part of a Richard Simmons routine, the first 15 minutes or so of this video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-KF
OV
P5PUU

Very low impact, but more than I'd been able to do since my hip began to really bother me. Didn't want to do too much too soon, of course. Perhaps I'll do a little more later, or just wait till tomorrow. It's just so good to be able to do it!

My knee is not bothering me today. Must have been a weather thing that people talk about?? I have not gotten out, it is way too cold and I am not in the mood to shovel snow. Besides that the door to my garage is piled high with snow and need the shovel out of the garage to clear that. So guess I will wait until it melts or maybe a son in law or grandson will come and shovel for me.

I called the post office and asked if the mailman could bring my mail to my door. I just don't want to get out. I just live across the alley from the post office but I have a box on the rural route. I am afraid of falling, I did not used to be but I sure don't want a broken hip or leg at my age. (or any age for that matter.)

emoticon Make a snow man, maybe I could get a neighbor boy to come and make one
too cold emoticon
More talk of snow or rain coming later in the week.
Sunshine would be nice emoticon

While I always have a running stock of standard breeds of dogs, and cats in assorted colors, I get a bunch of special orders because of course we love our pets! And I also do other animals from Aardvaark (and yes, I've sold some!) to Zebra! Shelley

Hi Friends!
Marlene glad you have opted to be safe!! Hope you enjoyed the snow from the inside! I love to watch it snow!! Very touching story, thanks for sharing! Who is the American singing artist of the 60's and 70's and probably longer that also stuttered except when signing?

Shelley sounds like you have been very busy!! Would you share your animal creations pics on your page?

We are getting rain and then freezing temps through the night. We should get rain but then it will turn to snow or ice. Travel will be treacherous the next few days. We are prepared to stay in and be safe. Our closet area lake has been down 11 ft and now is down just 9 ft. Still much more is needed for us to manage through the hot summer. God is good to give us so much more moisture this week!!

Marlene, I clicked on that link, and it brought tears to MY eyes, too! It's lovely to see people overcome challenges.

I ordered 17 - SEVENTEEN - things of yarn from Jo Ann fabrics online! I still have enough to finish the blanket I'm making for the boy twin; the new stuff will be here for the girl to pick some colors she'd like.

This morning I made some special order cats, a couple of red pandas, and a few other small animals out of clay.

The kids return to school tomorrow - it'll be quieter in the house! Shel

It is snowing and blowing here and it is in the 20s. I have decided to stay home from church. I am having trouble with one of my knees and it is hard enough to walk in the house so I am sure it would be hard going down my snowy steps.

Have a great day!!!

tooth is fixed, I probably lost weight but I am sure I gained it back when I started eating food again.

Crocheting isn't much of a strain...Though my fingers can get numb after a while!

Going out today - first time since going home from hospital on the 5th. It's super cold out, and I also have to stop at the PO to mail some packages, and at the grocery store to get PRODUCE! (I want SALAD!) My friend is taking me, so I offered to buy her an early dinner after the running around. Shel

Poor nose! May the Lord speed healing!
Finished crocheting a blanket for one of my step-grands and am working on another for the twin boy. Then I will have to get more yarn to make one for the twin girl. But they are all delighted to have their own.

Marlene sorry you lost a crown! I hate it when that happens!

Shelley that is a wise idea especially with children that need so much care. You might make it back just in time for school to be out! ;-) At least the weather will be warmer!

DS's surgery went well today. His nose is repaired and the artery is back in place where it should be to be protected from hits. He broke his nose so many times as a kid that the artery was no longer where it was meant to be but exposed and arteries don't stop bleeding easily. So glad it is fixed and the surgery went well. The hard part will be keeping him "quiet" for a week. But thankfully his wife will keep him in line! ;-)

I put in to take the full recommended 12 weeks to recover - that gives the muscles time to firm up and heal so as not to worry about the hip dislocating. I probably COULD go back sooner, but at my age, I'd rather not rush things.

Good morning all. The sun is shining and snow is gone except for north side of the buildings and where there is shade from the sun. I am going to go turn up the heat at the quilt shop so it will be okay when they use the building. Too cold to walk this morning so will get the car out of the garage.
I am staying on a liquid diet of flurries and such. I can not get in to the dentist until Thursday morning to have the crown put back on the tooth. I am trying not to eat solid food that will get in the hole where it came out.

Well I posted to the team earlier today but not sure what happened to it! I will try again.

Marlene so glad you bundled up warm to go out and sweep your deck. Don't worry, we'd know you aren't a terrorist! Please be careful when you go out that you don't fall!
Know what you mean about moisture! We need it so badly here too. The area lakes are now dry pasture land like before the dams were built. Scary since that is where our drinking water comes from!

Shelley Sorry you had to postpone but if your weather is bad, it is probably a good thing you did. Now you have something to look forward too!
When do you go back to school? You are doing so well with your recovery and exercising!

DS is having his nose surgery tomorrow. Hope it accomplishes what they hope it will.

We ended up postponing our date - she was tired from work, and the weather has been yucky. She suggested we go to an airy mall so we (I, especially) can walk around. Our Scrabble game has also been postponed due to the inclement weather. The fun thing is telling my in-laws in the steamy hot jungle about what our temps are!

We had snow during the night, I have great grands coming this afternoon so I bundled up until all you could see was my eyes, put on my boots and went out and swept the porch steps and the ramp that goes to the deck. The snow was real fine and if the wind comes up I will probably have to do it again. I took a selfie and sent it to my kids, my son said I looked like a terrorist.
emoticon It is in the 20s now but I was afraid if it melted and refroze it would be slick.

I don't know how much snow we got but it is pretty and we need all the moisture we can get.

Not wet enough to make a snowman.

Marlene so sorry you lost your streak but glad you were able to go the funeral without doing all that driving by yourself. I know what you mean about being tired. I couldn't go back to sleep last night after the dogs needed to go out. So I lost 2 hrs. Glad that doesn't happen every night.

Shelley glad you are finding a way to exercise anyway. I am glad you have a friend to share the holiday with. It does make it special.

Yesterday was so nice here. Just like Spring. I spent some time cleaning the garage and found a sweatshirt DH must have taken off when working out there. Always a bit hard to find something like that, unexpectedly. But that was so like him. ;-) 2 yrs ago Valentines and our anniversary were the last holidays we would spend together. It is getting easier but will never be easy, I assume.

DS is having surgery on his nose Tuesday. This is going to be a busy week. But we keep on plugging on.

Hugs to you both!

Weight continues to climb. I do the exercises I'm allowed for therapy, mainly to strengthen and restore range of motion. No real cardio. I wonder...maybe I'll try the seated cardio, just adjusting for hip precautions. This morning I got in the shower all by myself, using the shower chair.
I am also sleeping better.
Today my old high school friend (we've known each other since 9th grade) is coming over to be my Valentine - not sure if we're going OUT, or sending out - since MY Valentine is far away and she doesn't have any significant other right now. We started this 4 years ago when my DH passed away the day before.
It's precious to have old friends, and to honor them when the time comes to attend funerals when possible. Shel

I never got on here yesterday and lost my streak. I had to spin to starti over on the count. I was gone until after lunch 50 miles to a funeral of a lady that was a neighbor child when I went to country school 70 years ago. My neighbor here in town sister is married a brother of the lady that died and was going to the funeral and asked if I wanted to ride with them, so I did. Then in the afternoon my DD and her DH were here. He is putting up an antenna so I can get Kansas TV. Sure hope it works. I live on the Kansas/Oklahoma border so am sort of in a lost zone when it comes to weather coverage. I have Directv out of Oklahoma City but that is several miles away.
I woke this morning at 2:30 so now I think I will go back to bed.
I was really tired last night and went to bed earlier but only have 6 hours of sleep so far.
