QOTD: My sparkpeople name is the name of my farm, Goldenrod Farm. couldn't think of anything else when I was signing on lol

Today my first lamb of the season was born, Leila one of the older ewes had a large ewe lamb, this is the first time she hasn't had twins. I put some pics on my blog for today along with some of Calliope and Jasper Mouse.

Heck yeah Terry, you DESERVED to relax on your vacation and you did get some things accomplished!

I feel good about what I got done today for a change. Aiyden's room is cleaned up, all his drawers cleaned out, washed the patio door windows, put up a few Easter window clings, watered all my plants, did some laundry and Andy vacuumed for me! :-) Not hauling up the Easter decorations. We're going away this weekend. Brenda and her hubby booked two rooms at a hotel not all that far from us, said we need to all go and enjoy the pool and hot tub and not worry about cooking a big meal or anything this year. The kids are old too old for the egg hunt now and Aiyden isn't quite old enough yet - plus he's the only little one now and that's no fun to do alone. I used to always decorate a lot for every holiday - lots of window clings, figurines, etc., but just didn't get to it this time. Different when all the kids were little and got a kick out of it, I guess.

QOTD: Mine is pretty self explanatory. It is what it says. Born and raised here.

Joyce, you made me laugh when you said you'd been lazy. I was last week on vacation. I spring cleaned our bedroom, made two trips to Goodwill with books and clothing. That was about the extent of my extra curricular activities for vacation. My excuse is that I work so dog-gone hard every other week, I deserved to do nothing. Then when the week came to an end, I wished I had done more. So be it.

Snowing here today. It's not really accumulating anything, but good grief, enough is enough.

Yaaaay for the Neil Diamond concert!! emoticon

Trudy, I did get myself motivated to clean Aiyden's room up. Decided not a good idea to wait for Andrea if I want it done! LOL

QOTD: No originality there - when I first signed up, just used my first initial and last name. Didn't realize how creative we could be, but figure I'd confuse everyone if I changed it now. LOL

Saw Neil Diamond on Thursday night - what show! It was his first big performance back in Brooklyn - he was born and raised there. The crowd was great - really gave him a big NY welcome!

Had Friday off so I could sleep in - didn't get home from the concert until 1:00 AM - there was no way I could get up @ 4:30 and head to work. Did that in my younger days - can't do that now!

@Peggy - sorry to hear of your BIL passing.

QOTD:
1. Yes - do alot of shopping online. Amazon & Lands End get most of my money!
2. My couch, doesn't matter which end, as long as I can stretch out and read my book (and of course have my kitty in my lap).
3. I use Norton anti-virus

Had snow on Friday morning and again this morning - really getting tired of this weather. The weekend was clear - but very cold and windy.

Good morning!!
Yesterday was such a gray and gloomy day, today is bright sunshine!! I like today so much better!!
Peggy, my thoughts are will you today. emoticon
Joyce, I know what you mean about hating it when you feel lazy. Yesterday I didn't have anything that needed to be done and no where to go. When I took my fit bit off last night I'd only walked 470 steps....not THAT is lazy!!! Today will be much better. I'll be out a lot of today!
QOTD: I have virus protection that I purchase. I also have a tech person who will take a look every so often to be sure things are good!! I really appreciate his ability to do that for me!!
Terry, your husband's new truck sounds very luxurious!! Nice to be able to use it for errands!!
I have a pretty busy week. I'm always glad to be busy during the week. It's nice to have a reason to get out each day!!
Everyone have a great day.

Hii all.....

Terry, that truck sounds great! I rarely drive anymore. DH has appointed himself my designated driver. I don't mind, it gets him out of the house at least.

Peggy will be thinking of you and yours today.

Grey skies and 40's today. Sure wish the warmth of spring would catch up with the calendar!

Aiyden is with Brenda today so I'm hoping to get some cleaning done. I got nothing done last week and I hate it when I feel that lazy! Need to give myself a real push and get busy.

Have a great day everyone!

QOTD: I use Microsoft Windows Defender on my laptop and Lookout on my phone.

Vacation is over and back to the grind today. .Probably a good thing, I didn't get much for cardio last week. As much as I'd like to stay home, it'll be good for me to back to work.

My DH bought a new Super Duty pickup last week and I used it yesterday to do some errands in town. I could get very spoiled driving that. Heated/cooled seats and a very luxurious ride.

QOTD, I love my recliner, I accually have two single recliners and a double recliner that is like my couch!

Todays QOTD I have different antivirus protection on my different computers, I use microsoft on the small laptop, I was using one from my provider on my big laptop but it let in a virus so I switched to microsoft. I don't use a tablet yet, but they have very few virus problems, only lately has ipad had problems. My new Dell has a dell virus program, I may switch it when I get using it more.

Annie, glad that oversized chicken was good! LOL

Merri, my daughter and SIL have two recliners in their living room at the apt. along with their sofa, so I think we could do it. Have to think about it....

Blue skies and sunshine again today, but still pretty cold! Would love to see a warmup that would stay awhile instead of the one day teases we've had!

Babysitting today, so won't be doing much. We have an easy week coming up though as far as babysitting goes. Andrea is only scheduled two days because they'll close for Easter. She's at the salon two days, but those are shorter hours.

We have two recliners in our living room. We had a problem finding one that was smaller than most as our room isn't that big. If I do feel like I am going to fall asleep for a bit in the afternoon, I do sit in the recliner. I have sleep apnea and it is best to take a nap sitting up

The store where we got our recliners from actually let us take one recliner home with us to see how it would fit in our living room....And what color would look best. We took a picture of our couch that was only one year old to the store and than we all picked what color chair would go best....Both chairs are the same color...

Jan, that's good advice on the recliner. Even on my sofa, the cushion bulges and hits the back of my head in an uncomfortable spot and makes my neck hurt. I have a neck pillow I use to make it work better, but definitely would want to sit in a recliner before buying it!

QOTD: I love sitting I my club chair with feet up on the ottoman (laptop on my lap). DH has a recliner but I never sit in it - fits for him but for me it pushes my head forward and is very uncomfortable. So make sure your recliners are comfortable for you before you buy.

LOL - agree with you gals, doubt we'd even notice if a question was repeated. I'm glad you're all enjoying them. Let me know if you get tired of them and I won't ask others to take over.

Well, got the shopping done - have I told you how much I HATE grocery shopping!? LOL Andy said "yes, every time you go!" Particularly dislike going on Saturday, but it just worked out that was what we had to do this time. Oh well......it's done!

We'll just make it for the viewing from 4-8. The funeral is Monday at 10 am

Joyce, I am here and ready to take over the April QOTD.....some times have thought of a question and than Annie has put it on here tho LOL...

I do agree with all of you too that is does give us so much more info about us and what we like and don't like doing...

I have a page of questions. I am sorry but I have to be on top of everything and I would want to bet that is why my blood pressure is always up .....

QOTD.....I just love my computer chair the best of all. If I have a sore back, I am in my computer chair. Ken is in his too around 75% of the time he is up and about....

Hi all.....

Looks like Amazon is pretty popular - I sure love the convenience they offer! I don't enjoy browsing in stores like I used to.

Speaking of that - have to go to WalMart today to get scripts and groceries. Ugh! Really don't like going on the weekend, but with the babysitting schedule this week, today is the only day we'll be able to go - and that's not until after Andrea gets back from the salon.

We have blue skies and sunshine here - but WOW is it cold! We'd hoped to go to the zoo on Easter Sunday, but so far it's looking like temps in the 30's and that's just a bit too cold to enjoy it!

Merri, are you about ready to go with the QOTD for April? I hope you are all enjoying them as much as I am - it really gives us some more insight into the team members and I love that so many of you are participating! Annie, you've been doing a great job! Thanks!

Good morning!!
It's so cold this morning, only 16....but absolutely beautiful sunshine!!
Yesterday was gray, snowy, blustery. I couldn't warm up all day!!
I'm having some friends over tonight for dinner and maybe cards. They may want to watch basketball.
Joyce, I'll bet you'll get involved with a group in town really quickly. You're such an outgoing and fun person!! The gals in this Y group talk periodically about how nice it is that we all met.
When you retire, it's harder to make new friends. If we hadn't all been going to the same water aerobics class we wouldn't have met! I'm very thankful.
QOTD: Yes, I shop on line a lot! I love the convenience. I've never been a good shopper.
A lot of people enjoy going store to store and browsing. I've never enjoyed that.
Joyce, I haven't talked to Marilyn since she got back from FL in Feb. I need to see if we can get together, probably after I get back from Australia.
Everyone have a great day!!

It is only 20 here and it is -6 in Marquette, MI where two of our DD's live....We do have the sun out too and that really helps a lot....

Not much going on here today. We have church tonight and it is nice now that it is still light out when we get out of church...Doesn't take much to make me happy LOL

We did a bit of shopping yesterday at Walmart so no need to go out today until later on...

The kids had a day off of school and boy they were all over in the store...Of course Mr Ken needed his bananas and milk.....

QOTD????? Do you shop online????
Amazon has my number. Unless I know for sure it's in a neighborhood store, I let UPS do the footwork for me.

Well, I'm still alive, so there's thatů..

Sorry all, I've been MIA here this week. Had a week off and the computer hasn't been my priority.

I've officially joined the ranks of this forum this week and turned 60.

QOTD #1 Real flowers inside and out. I've bought 4 different packages of bee and butterfly friendly flower seeds for my husbands girls. That's what he calls his bees.

QOTD #2 I do most of my shopping online and also use Paypal for payment. Amazon is where I most commonly go. I'll also google shop to see where I can get the best prices and reviews of something that I'm looking for.

The snow has really taken a hit here this week. There's still plenty of it left and still lots of ice on the lakes and ponds.

Just two more days left of my vacation. It has gone by so fast. But I've rested up and ready to hit the pavement on Monday. At least it has warmed up in the last week and I think we have finally made the turn into spring.

Everyone have a great weekend.

I myself have only ordered one pair of shoes on line from Zappos. I was very satisfied....Ken buys a lot of things from Amazon too Joyce....He is very satisfied with his purchases too....

We have two new Amazon plants going up here in Kenosha, WI. They have just hired over 1,000 people lately. They opened up right around Christmas time...

We made it to Columbia SC. Boy there was a lot of traffic and most of it seemed to be people from Ontario and Quebec with motorhomes.

It wasn't as bad in Florida and Georgia where there were 3 lanes but that ended at the SC border. There were big slowdowns when the trucks would pass the trucks or motorhomes. But now we are safe and sound in our room for the night.

That's a great challenge Annie - thank you for sharing it!! Curious to hear how the chicken turns out. LOL

QOTD: I do a lot of shopping online. What a shame you had a bad experience Annie, I love online shopping! I do a lot with Amazon, love the convenience of looking for specific things and finding them so easily and two days later they're at my door. Also buy from places like Kohls, Penny's, Blair, Swiss Colony, etc.

QOTD, I love real flowers, both in the house and in my garden.

QOTD I do a lot of shopping onlne, I mostly use paypal for paying. There just isn't any option to get much around here unless I travel to Bangor and even there the sewing/quilting supplies are getting more limited every day. I order a lot of farm stuff online, you can get it so quick from Amazon.

Do you shop online????





No , I don't ,, we bought one of those prepaid cards, loaded it with X amount of $$$ as we were not sure about this online shopping,, and bought something,,, and still SHOULD have had $$$ left on the card.. I went to use it and it had nothing on the card.. I called our bank , where I bought it, and it said this "company" had the full amount deducted !!! I called them,, they go,, oh, well we put you on a list of customers , you have credit here, I go, WE DON'T want anything from you again.. well the co. said we dont refund we ONLY give credit.. that was about 10 yrs ago.. and we have NEVER bought anything online AGAIN...
I do give the $$ to my kids, who buy on line for me (us) once in a while..
