I have two children, four grandchildren all in their 30s and 7 great grands age 14, 11, 9, 4, 2, 1 and one a month old. In November I will gain two more great grands if all goes according to plan. One is a birth and one is a 12 year old that I will gain when one of my granddaughters gets married in November. I only have the one great granddaughter that is pictured here the rest are boys.

All we have is wind, the tornadoes in Oklahoma were not close to me. We have had a lot of bad straight line wind that caused a lot of damage several miles south of here. Today it is cold again and the wind is blowing hard from the north west, yesterday it was from the west, the day before was from the south and stirring up a lot of dust. Not quite as bad as the dust bowl days but bad enough. We haven't had any rain and the wheat is going backwards fast. Not sure if a rain would help now. But God is in charge so what will be will be.
Nice hearing from you... Hope all are well.

Rain has been plaguing our farmers planting lately...not a bad thing for us cattle growers needing warm weather and rain for our grass to grow. Every year about this time...we try to remember what was planted across the street last year. We are either blessed with a beautiful cotton field or allergies of a peanut field. But wouldn't trade it for a whole city block.

I am going to have to replace a couple of my fruit trees after the harsh winter...just trying to decide which fruit to change to this time. Citrus just doesn't like the spot I am planting in.

Corn fields have always been my favorite....reminds me of my childhood.

Hope you all have a safe planting season.

I just lost all I wrote, Dang! Plan on starting corn next week, one neighbor BTF big time farmer started today. Had a very bad Monday, two men in the area got NH3 burnt, one very slight but the other will have some lasting effects. Then a neighbor gal was out for her early morning jog when a neighbors two pit bulls tried to have her for breakfast, they had came out at her before but would just run along side awhile. Luckily her husband came along on his bike and finial was able to chase them off. Her face was spared but neck, arms, hands, stomach and legs will need much surgery, they did some Monday and more today when we went to see her. The dogs were put down with the neighbors permission. She still is facing more surgery and much pain. Then a another close friend and relative went into the hospital , couldn't breath, had many blocked arteries, they started putting in stints in stages. Sure hope next week goes better. Have a great day Spark friends. Skeeter

Although I now live in town, I still drive my 4x4 Explorer most of the time and out in the country. I have a newer Explorer but it is not 4x4 and I am trying to keep it nice. It is a 2012 and only has 15500 miles on it. I try not to drive it off the highway. The snow has been nice here but it is still really dry and we are in constant fire alert as the grass is so dry. We need rain but the wheat is greening up and looks so pretty.
Nice to hear from you, I don't get on Spark as much as I should. Seems the older I get the busier I get.

Always nice to get together with friends for a free meal. We just attended our Lee County of Ill. farmers breakfast for .50 cents, that's the farmer share of coffee, milk, juice 2 sausage patties and 2 pancakes. What a crowd, think everyone wanted to get out. It's 37 right now, talking about 50's next week. Finally got the car plowed out of the garage this week, been driving the 4 wheel drive pickup all winter, some days had trouble getting in our drive with that.
Have a G D getting married in a couple weeks in N.C., really looking forward to making the trip.
GLBH is done with her radiation treatments on her nose, should be OK for wedding pictures, still having some bleeding issues.
You have a great spring friends!

Sounds the same as everywhere. We have had lots of snow but that is good for the wheat. The ice is what I don't like and most days I just stay in the house. It was supposed to snow this morning but so far it isn't, may before the day is over.

Annual coop meeting is tonight, food, drawings and meeting. I am a member so will try to go, may hitch a ride with another farmer and wife.

Keep warm.

Sure glad the days are getting longer, means spring not far behind. So much snow, had a few days of thawing and water has no where to go, ditches all full of frozen snow. Had water folding across my road this A M, , real dangerous. At least it's been in the high 20 most days. Sure have to be carful where we walk, ice everywhere. GLBH only has 6 radiation treatments left on her nose, glad when that's done. Skeeter emoticon

We have up and down temps, one day up next day down. Today was nice and in the 40s but windy, tomorrow low 20s and wind chill below 0. The wind has been bad and many fires in Oklahoma. I am doing pretty good, keep busy. Tomorrow I will stay in out of the cold. We are so dry and need snow or rain or both.

Just checking in. Weather has been tolerable, low 20's during the day and windy! very little snow today. Been going to Dr. And meetings. Have a funeral tomorrow for a fellow I visited monthly in the nursing home, had a fall 3 weeks ago and just couldn't recover. I sing in the choir with his wife and such a nice couple. Check our farm books in with our Farm Accountant in the P M.. Sure hope your winter is going good. Tomorrow will be a better day! The ole pest, the Skeeter

4 days until Christmas emoticon

We had nice weather earlier in the week one day in the 70s but now in the 20s and ice and maybe snow coming on top of that. I did go very slowly out my front door and down the icy steps to get my mail. I was very careful, sure don't want a broken leg or worse.

The grounds getting frozen now, most of the field work should be finished. Put up last of Christmas lights this P M. . Not as many as other years, just too much work and cold. Corn yielded a little under last year, my best ever, but still above 5 year average. Beans best ever, just never know. Prices are really depressed this year. . Sure hope all had a great Thanksgiving, we sure did, spent about a week in N. C. With S #1 and family. Always a great visit. Went to our G K's grade school music concert tonight, what a delight to hear all the great Christmas songs both band and choirs Have a great Christmas my Spark friends! Skeeter

All we got was a dry hole and a bill.$$$$$

I don't have much to say about the crops, have a guy doing the farming on shares. The wheat did pretty good this year. I sold it and within a week it had gone up 30 cents. Such is live.

Hope you have a happy day on the 25th. Anniversary??

I see the powers to be are after the ole lazy team captain again so better write something.
Been busy with my favorite pastime and best time of the year. Fall harvest. The lord always seems to bless us with more than we deserve. Beans all done, only 80 acres, and corn about half done, were down to the easy part now, combine to grain cart to truck to elevator, all we are up against now is the winter weather setting in.
Have a great week Spark friends.
Please help us celebrate a very big day this 25th. , isn't life the greatest? emoticon

You are so funny.

I have drillers coming this morning to drill some water wells. My pond got so dry that most of the fish are gone. My kids think that we should have water wells so we can pump in water when it gets low. A man was going to come with his bulldozer and clean out the pond, but before he got there it started raining and now it is half full again. My son is going to take off work and go tell them where he wants the wells and etc. I don't know that much about it as I have left it up to my son and grandson. That farm will be theirs someday. I just have to be available to pay the bill.

We have had rain, finally got some water in the pond. We were going to have it cleaned out and then it started raining, Now the sun is shining and is supposed to warm up to the 90s.

Well, I was lost this morning. I went out and washed my red Explorer and vacuumed inside.and my nephew Jerry called me while I was washing and said he had a cucumber for me if I was going to be home. Well, I thought I would be until I came in the house and a neighbor Betty had left a message on the phone to come down for coffee. I called her back and said I will be down as soon as I change my jeans, they were wet to the knees. So I laid my phone and keys on the bed, changed my jeans and walked to Betty's. I forgot about Jerry until I all at once said to Betty I have to go because Jerry is coming. He came while I was gone, opened the door and yelled for me and then tried calling me. He also called half the town,Also called my son, daughter and probably my grandson.. Now I am home and I have called everyone that I can think of to tell them I am okay. I nearly always have my phone in my pocket but it was still laying on the bed and the cucumber was on the north porch. I feel really bad that I had everyone anxious. My car is nice and clean. I need to do the white one but I will just vacuum it and some day when I go to Enid I will run it through the car wash. I am too short to wash the hood and the top.

What weather we've been having, very little rain, half inch so far this month, but crops are handling it O K.. G S # 6 getting married this weekend in Indiiania, outdoor wedding, indoor reception, supposed to be nice. Where did the summer go, seems too fast. GLBH did applesauce with our early apples, best crop ever, mustard pickles, ugh, seems everyone likes them but me. Waiting for peaches from Michigan this weekend, neighbors always take a trailer and bring back many bushel. She cans them, all the family sure enjoy them. Going to a combine meeting today, bought a newer one and need a refresher course on all the different improvements. Have a great day.

Just sitting here waiting another storm out, plenty of rain this year. I am up over 5" for the month so far not counting this A M. I suppose another 1" before this one is done. Really have to keep the lawn mower a rolling, have over 2 acres, usually takes me about 3 hours.
Crops look good around here, just north of here have had much more rain and wind. Either very high winds or tornado destroyed a grain elevator 14 miles south west of us yesterday about 5 P M., no reported injuries but oh what a mangled mess of big grain bins, all looked like they were empty so really made them weaker.
We have Son # 3 and DIL moved from Ind. to Iowa, G S # 1 and family moving from Ind. to Ill., today, what a bad day to move and then another G S getting married in August in Ind., real busy! Love it and glad to be a part of it.
All excited about the Hawks win last night, GLBH became a hockey puck fan this year, sure hope she doesn't get hooked on billiards.

I'm glad to hear things are getting back to somewhat "normal", I know it would be quite an adjustment. I have been watching the storm coming from your direction, sure hope all will be safe. Corn and beans all in, garden too, sure nice that the GLBH is feeling good enough to help this year. I am happy for you on the new house, looks like the shelter is a good investment. Have a great Sunday! Skeeter

I have a new house and now had sod put in, watering like mad. I am hoping we get some rain tonight so I won't have to water tomorrow. Been planting trees and bushes. It is beginning to look pretty good.

I debated about hail insurance for the wheat this year as we had such a dry spell, but the wheat looks pretty good and my kids thought I should be coverage on it. We are under a tornado watch this evening but does not look like it is going to be bad here. Just never know, I put in a storm shelter so I am ready to run if I have to.

This will be my last year as farmer doing the crop next year I will have someone else doing it on a 2/3-1/3rd. DH had already go some one to do the farming as he was giving it up. He also had the farm auction set up. Now that is over and hoping things will get to a normal state one of these days. Sure do miss him.

Corn done hoping to get to beans today. Have a new planter, has been quite a learning experience for this ole farmer.. Is powered by monitor that is like a computer. Also has automatic steering, with the help of the dealer, slowly "getting" it.

Electricity is off for the second time today but I have a generator so my power is on. Just hope the tractor does not run out of diesel before morning. I am moving to town in a month or so and will have a total electric home there, too. My grandson says he will put a propane generator that will run the whole house. I would not worry about it but must keep the water from freezing. It did freeze last week but I was able to get it warm enough to thaw them. Only supposed to get down in 20s before morning this time. It is 33 degrees at 9 pm. Sure miss my husband, he always took care of things, now his nephew comes out and starts the tractor and generator. Maybe we will have a wheat crop after all, God does provide.

Looks like we will get the snow-blow tomorrow, some events are being cancelled. Great day today, I worked in the shed all afternoon. Can't be too many storms left in her now, days are getting nice and long. Sure hope you didn't lose electricity, we did the other night for about 4 hours, house got down to 55. But we survived. Have a good one. Skeeter emoticon

Really snowing here, it rained from midnight until almost noon. Forecast up to 20 inches of snow and high winds. Hope I can keep electricity.

Just putting in my time until this ole winter is past, at least its been mild and not much snow for this Northern Il. area. We did have a clod spell last week and the water pipes froze on our washing machine. I have a light bulb that I plug in, takes awhile but is very safe.
Had around 4" of snow yesterday and some wind, shoveling is good for the ole duffer.
Took relative- friend out last night for a sorta anniversary dinner, then back to their house for conversation, just recently moved to town from the farm.
Did babysit Monday 120 miles south for our G K 's, was nice until we were ready to leave home, had 3" of snow in less than an hour. Roads were very bad, came most of the way 40 MPH, took 3 hours+ but made it safe.
Have a great week!

Want to wish all my Spark team members a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We have just a dusting of snow, not any too much for N Ill. this time of the year but did get much rain this week to replenish the soil.
Did many more acres of tileing this week, sure glad we got it done before bad weather set in. We have to tile in this flat land otherwise the water just sits.
Will be having our Christmas the 28th., that's when our S#1 and family arrive from N.C.
Church today then will have to figure out why my big star was not lit last night when came home from a wedding, hope it's something simple.
My best Christmas present this year is to be able to wake up every morning with the GLBH breathing beside me in bed. All other presents will not compare.
The Lord is good as we await the Celebration of his birth.

Will finish harvest today, about 4 truck loads left. Been a very good fall to harvest. Rain has came to help settle the dust and replenish the soil. Yields real good, we were blessed in a very narrow ban of rain this summer just when we needed it.
GLBH has really enjoyed running the tractor and grain cart, last year she had so much pain could hardly do it. What a difference a year makes.
We feel so fortunate for all God's blessings. It's been quite a year!
Have a good one and don't forget to vote wisely.

Starting 2nd. week of harvest. Things going very well, weather has really cooperated. S#4 helped unload Saturday and oldest S#1 came from N.C. Sunday and will help until he flies back Saturday. Have one bin filled-dried- and emptied yesterday, start filling again today. Other bin will top it off today, not sure if I will empty it and refill or just go direct from the field to truck to elevator. The corn is getting so dry does not pay to run it through my bin-dryer. GLBH has been helping too, I have rationed her unloading wagons. She can handel the tractor and grain cart, that is less work than unloading wagons. She really enjoys it and is very good too.
Neighbors corn field caught fire Saturday, federal crop insurance adjuster drove his pickup in a partially combined corn field and caught it on fire. Truck a TOTAL, neighbor came real quick with his disk and stopped the wind driven fire along with the fire department., could have been worse.
Life sure is treating us GREAT!
Have a good one.

Sure sorry to hear the news on the BH, just never when that might hit. Wish they could find a cure.
Still busy getting equipment ready, some days move so slow like a 74 year old, wait a minute, I will be 74 next month! LOL

Sorry, I just have not been here. We are very dry here, not rain and we need it bad so we can work ground and plant wheat.n We had a pretty good harvest but not sure if there will be one next year if we don't get rain soon.

DH had cancer come back on his liver so he is back taking chemo again. I imagine that it will mean liver surgery again, too. He seems to be handling it, Seems unfair that when you get so you can retire that illness comes along and keeps you from enjoying it. Although I am not sure he will ever retire. He says he is but we will see.

Harvest is getting closer, some beans are starting to turn. I will be doing corn before my beans are ready. Shooting for the last week in September, unless we get real cool weather. Been working on the combine and all related equipment. Fall is always an exciting time in a farmers life, just wish more could have shared the rainfall.
Have a great Labor Day weekend, I plan on laboring.

It's interesting to met different people from all areas of the US..
We are sure having a different year. So little rain over the midwest this year, makes one real sad. We are blessed with fairly good rain, will have better than average crops.
Will be going on my annual 2 day 100 mile tractor ride tomorrow, over 100 tractors[older] involved. I will be going on my 1971 IHC 656. Very scenic.
Thanks for finding our team.

Skeeter,

I was so happy to find this Team. I'll certainly read anything you have to say when it comes to farming. I'm not old, but totally farm crazy. My husband and I bought 10 acres or land and built a house on it 4 years ago out in the country. Besides my full time job, I take care of all our land. My dream is to one day own a tractor. My neighbor has taught me how to use one. I haven't in some time and really miss it. I try to walk/run just about everyday so I can visit the cows down the road. I absolutely love them. They are my motivation to get out. I started a garden a few years ago and this year is the best yet. However, I have fallen a bit behind and now the weeds are taken over. We got a really good rain last night so I'm hoping to hit the weeds tomorrow morning early before the sun starts peaking over the mountain. Again, I'm glad to have found you and hope you can continue to share life on the farm.

Lynn

Another hot one today. Spent the afternoon snapping corn out of my bean field. Keep the water jug close by.
Now that's what I call exercise.

Not sure if anyone reads this anymore but will try anyway.
Tempretures been in the high 90's lately, had over 100 one day. had a much needed rain Friday, one farm half an inch another one1.2 ", other rain gauge was blown out of stand, did have some wind.
Replanted N T beans June 7th. with a planter, they are finally looking decent now.
Corn looks pretty good for no more rain than we have had, 9 tenths for June, does curl it's leaves in PM.
For those of you who have been following the adventures of the GLBH she has been diagnosed by a heart Specialist Dr. to be back to normal, meaning no further surgery, very good news. Thank You Lord!
Hope all is going well where ever you are.

What a difference a month makes. Most of you have read my latest blog so will not bore you with anymore details.
Marlene, hope your anniversary went well, congratulations on the many years.
We were in the low 90's yesterday so guess summer is here. Hope to get some rain out of this strong wind today, need it for the No-till beans to emerge better.
GLBH keeps improving more every day, will even walk to alter today for communion. Absolutely NO Pain anywhere, sure glad for that.
Corn sure looks good around here, clean and good color, but could use some moisture.
It keeps us busy going to her Rehab sessions 3 times a week plus Dr. appointments in between.
Sure Love Waitin on That Woman!

prayers are being sent your way. She will get along fine, modern medicine is wonderful.

We had some nice rain and lots of warm weather. The wheat is growing and so is everything else. I can not keep up with the yard work. DH and I did get the yard mowed somewhat. It is very large. My arms are better now but the weed eater sure made for sore muscles.

Our anniversary is Wednesday.....58 years.

Just a note to let you know I'll be away for a few days starting Mon. real early. GLBH is scheduled for total hip replacement. I think we will have our hands full until she's up to speed. Sure hope her pain subsides.
Please pray for her.

It has been a beautiful day. I intended to work out in the yard but just never got around to it. I had an appointment in the town where I go to the beauty shop 17 miles away at 9 this morning so I called Edward Jones and got in there at 8. Almost next door to each other. Then I went to the bank and the pharmacy and on out to Alco. Had to be back 14 miles at the car lot by 10 to do paper work for a car sale. I thought of staying in town for lunch but the small cafe only has one thing on the menu and you eat that if you want to eat. Today it was taco soup which sounded good but not to DH. So I came home to fix lunch. No water....the pipeline crew from the oil companies had cut the rural water line. I got lunch fixed but it was not anything that had to be cooked in water. Now the dishes are sitting because I was waiting for the water to come back on and then I forgot. It is on now but so much air in the lines, I hate to run that air through the hot water heater but may have to in order to get the kitchen in order. I keep water in jugs to wash hands and etc but hate to use it to cook with when it sits for months.
DH is much better with his cold but still coughing a lot until his head hurts. Nothing seems to help. So many things he can not take.
We had a storm go through last night but not much rain, but a lot of lightening and wind. We are lucky because it did some damages further east of here.

We have been having a slight dusting of snow since last night.
County and State are wondering how they are going to spend all budgeted money for snow and ice removable?

Woke up early this A M to the GLBH being sick, she's supposed to play the organ at a local church but don't see that happening. Never know though, she's a women and can't ever count her "down".
The church had a chill supper last night that we went to, but I'm all right so think it's probably just a bug.
She doesn't need anything else with the arthritis in her hip to contend with.
Just gave me the word to call church, she's a NO GO!

Hate it when she's HURTING!

We've had fog the last few days, not bad today, at least we can see half mile away. Rained some through the night. Sure been an unusual winter, can't remember one so mild.
With the new computer, trying to get wireless speakers to work off the T V for outside patio we added new cell phones to confusion late yesterday. My head is going to EXPLODE! We run under a family plan with S# 2 and his contract was up. Changed to Verizon, all our other family's are on Verizon so will be so much cheaper for us, but so much for this "ole farmer" to learn!
This too shall be done.

Have a great weekend everyone.

We had almost 4 inches of much needed rain but now our roads are muddy. That is ok, I need to stay home anyway. There is always a four wheel drive around here somewhere.
Off to fix breakfast, have a good day.

I have been gone helping DH pick up vehicles. He is feeling pretty good and looks good. We go back to Houston again in April for followup tests. Yesterday we went through the town where the auditor is that does then audit for the town where I was clerk. I took two years for him to audit. He is very undependable about coming after them. I tried to find another auditor but none available. He will do the audits but it may take him a while but I hated leaving a job that I had started. Time to fix lunch. I have my 1099s and W2s done but still have a lot of tax papers to get together for the tax man.

Glad your wife is feeling better and can get out and share her music. What a joy. The Basset asserted himself as alpha and Buddy is settling down. Thank goodness. I was totally surprised as Rocco the Basset is such a calm and sweet guy. Who would have thought that he would stand up to my terror um....terrier.

Went house hunting. The kids found one that they like in the right neighborhood. Still have some reservations so they are still looking.

Sunny but cold today.
Went to church last night with GLBH, she is playing the organ this AM for another church, she is their fill end when full time organist heads South for the winter. She enjoys it and keeps her mind busy.
Her back-hip is somewhat better but still is scheduled for a Dr. Specialist Mon., she just started to drive again after over 2 months not being able to.
Have a Great week team.

The Bassett Hounds came back to me on Sunday. I had to put Reno down. His kidneys were failing and he was pooping on himself and his hind end was out. I can't believe exSIL let him live like that. We still have Rocco and I am putting him on a restricted diet to see if I can get his skin cleared up again. I don't think he will go back to SIL. The Bassets belonged to my daughter too. She is kind of happy to have Rocco back, now that I am home to care for him.

It was sunny and I would guess close to 60 degrees today. I worked outside in the garage in my shirt sleeves.

I never got here yesterday, maybe I can pop in more. I need to stay home a day or so and get something done. Probably have men to cook for at lunch.

DH keeps me pretty busy. Yesterday we went to get a vehicle for his car lot. Always something to do.

Skeeter, I hope all your good weather is helping your wife heal quickly.
Marlene, glad your DH has stabilized.

My daughter found a 1960s White brand sewing machine for 7 dollars at a thrift store. It is atomic two toned tuquoise and cream and in excellent condition. I raided my old Kenmore for parts. Now I just need to find a different presser foot so I can zigzag. I also can't fine the reverse for back stitching. Anyway, I altered a dress for my daughter and made a sock monkey. She called me a domestic goddess. I am having so much joy at caring for DD and GD.

DH's kidneys have stabilized too. He is still quite agitated. I wish he would get counseling too. I am not sure it would help, but it might be helpful for his children. Bless them for caring for him.

We have been gone all day and I am really tired. DH's thallium stress test took a couple hours then had to wait until the Dr. came with the results. It was not a treadmill but just the many medicines in his veins. Dr. said no change from last time so that was a good report. Then we went to eat as DH had not had anything to eat since early morning. Of course he being a car dealer stopped at a couple place to look at cars, and being a farmer, too, he stopped to get parts that no one had, so will probably have to order those. He stopped and got a trailer that he had bought a couple weeks ago. It is to haul his riding lawn mower on.
I always have a book to read but today at the heart Dr. there was a lady that I went to school with many long years ago. We chatted up a storm.

Weather has been nice here, too. in the 60s. We could use some rain again but it will come in due time.

Took the Christmas tree down yesterday and did all the outside decorations this P M. Do not remember ever being this warm while doing. 50 +. No snow, very little wind and sunny! WOW!
Hauled out two loads of corn this AM, sure is easier than when I loaded and hauled with my own truck.
GLBH still is hobbling around, feel so sorry for her, might want to go to the Chiropractor again tomorrow, was there Tuesday. Has an appointment with a specialist the 16th., we think a shot is in the future.
Hope everyones New Year is off to a great start.

Day [about] 5 of our busy Christmas season. Sure have enjoyed the different programs put on by our GK's. Took some traveling but GLBH did OK. After church yesterday AM went to S# 2 and family for lunch, also S # 4 joined and stayed the night with us. His W had the kid's and was supposed to spend Christmas day with her M and SD at her house but they decided not to come over.
Bulls win a squeaker and Bears are out of the running for the S B, no surprise on the latter. Bulls will give us MUCH pleasure this season, me thinks.
Weather has sure been GREAT. S # 1 and family are on their way here from N C as of today, They left 70's, told them the real cold is waiting for them to get here.
Hope everyone Christmas was GREAT.

The last two days have been lovely here too. Great spread at son's today. Lots of fish and finger foods. Enjoyed the 11:30 service at Church last night. We sang, prayed, the minister read Luke and we had communion.

We had another dinner today at DGS's.His wife can cook but does not do it much. We had turkey, dressing mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole and more. DGS contacted me before church and said dinner would be late as the turkey was not thawed probably eat about 2. We went in a little before but it was not ready until after 3. Not organized but turned out ok. It was nice to not have to do anything. I took some leftover peanut butter bars that DGS likes to get rid of them. I sat in the other room and let her and her mother to the cooking. It was hard not to be in the middle of it. No clean up as we used paper plates and such. She never brings anything when I cook so I just went with the bars and left them to get them out of my house. We have on more big dinner next Saturday with DH's siblings and families. Then back to the diet,

If I don't get on here first thing, I don't get much done here. Another busy day, I made three batches of sweet bread in small loaves and wrapped them, fixed ham, beans and cornbread for lunch. Then I had to clean up the kitchen because we had company this evening. DS brought pizza, it was a noisy evening, now all is quiet. GGS is here, he does not get to see his gpa much and beings he was here, I have the little one, too. He is sound asleep. And soon I plan on being there too.

Hope that things settle into a good routine.
Went 115 miles S yesterday PM for G K's Christmas program, first time we have been able to see it. Kid's and teachers alike did a fantastick job, they are to be congratulated.
Got home around 10.
Coldest A M this fall, low 20's, sun out now so doesn't look so bad, we don't mind the cold unless the wind blows, we set on top of a hill with very little windbreak from the NW.
Have a Very Merry Christmas and remember why we celebrate.

Hard jobs completed on time always feel so good afterward. I am looking for the glow.

Visited DH today, he seemed weaker and a little confused and his words were a little slurred, but it was a pleasant visit. No anger, agitation, anxiety or depression.

bed time but I had to come and check in so I could keep my perfect attendance. Now off to bed. I had 2 yr old GGS last night, he sleeps all night but I don't. Always worry about them in my care. He is good but heavy to lift.
Good Night.

Pearl Harbor day. Flags are flying around town.

for some reason the park has rototilled grids. I wonder if they are going to have a football game out here in the near future. Usually it is just used for soccer. That should be interesting.

Time to trim the hedges and build a deck off the front porch so we can sit in our yard and watch the games.

GD should set up a concession stand to earn money for her college fund. What an opportunity.

Sun is shining, it was 17 degrees this morning, really a miserable day yesterday, cold, damp and very windy from the north.

I never got here yesterday, hair cut in the morning, then 50 miles the other way for DH eye appointment, went to eat, went to WalMart and then went to my sister's while her DH and my DH went to look at a pickup. It was an all day affair.

Lunch to fix now, laundry going. I have two done, one in the dryer, one in the washer and another one on the floor to wash. Dishes in the dishwasher off the counter and out of the sink. Bills to pay and maybe I will go in while DD quilts and talk. I don't quilt but I will take my embroidery that I have not done for years.

Nice to hear you wife is doing better. I guess I need to be sick so DH would know what all I do besides being on the computer so much. emoticon

Thanks Marlene for the concern for the GLBH, don't realize all she did until I have to pick up the slack. She gave a piano lesson last night [half hour] and scheduled one for to day so I know she's doing better. Still hasn't heard from the Dr. on reading the xrays. 2 weeks Friday, has been house bound that long too.
We had temp. in the middle 20's last night, I had the fans running on the grain bins, cool's it down for the long winter and stays in condition better.
Have a great day.

One and a half days into my sugar/wheat fast and I am already feeling better. It doesn't take much of an effort to remind us why we should eat healthy.

I keep eyeballing the soccer field out the front window, thinking what a good community garden it would make. I would also like to see a section fenced in for an off leash dog area. I don't suppose the soccer players would share!!!!!!! I don't know why I am coveting the soccer field, the back yard is fenced and works well for Buddy and Mom and Dad had a huge garden back there at one time.

GLBH thought she was some better yesterday, both of us noticed she did not have to use her cane all the time walking through the house. Dr. ordered xrays taken 11 days ago, still can not get answers where they are. Next time I will personally take them to Dr. myself.
Oh what patience this new health care field teaches us.
Have a great one.

Running late again, maybe I catch up reading in the morning. Today was my last day of work, I will still be signing checks as they have not changed that yet. But usually that is only once a month so maybe by time to sign them they will have it changed.

Even though we were only seven instead of the usual 20 plus, we had a good time and Thanksgiving was very relaxing.

Skeeter, hope your wife is feeling better very soon.

Merri, we have January to look forward to and get ourselves back on track with healthy eating. Although DD informed me we are going wheat free/sugar free till Christmas. So, that will help make my pants fit more comfortably.

DH cancelled another doctor's appointment today. So I will go visit him on Sunday.

DD would like me to raise three hens here in town, because she prefers organic eggs. Luckily we can do that, so I might just give it a shot next spring.

We did not make the 900 mile trip to N C. GLBH has been house bound except for trip to the Dr., weekend and Thanksgiving has slowed her future treatment at a stand still. DIL had Thanksgiving dinner and I brought food home here and ate with her. Another BIG gathering today for dinner, will bring in beer batter chicken for the group, guessing I will bring food home again and eat with her. She just thinks she can't do the walking to and from the house's without much pain. Had to have a talk with her a couple nights ago when she lamented how worthless she was. Can't let her get her "dauber" down. This back-hip-leg thing just takes MUCH time, especially this time of the year.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, we have so many things to be thankful for.

Good Morning, still more eating here. I have a roast thawing for lunch today. Never know if men are working and will be here or not but you can't until they get here to fix something. Even if they don't show, there will be meat for sandwiches for DH but I imagine there will be turkey and ham left tomorrow, too. I think I will take some up of the leftovers tomorrow and put them in DD's refrigerator so when they get home from England there will be cooked food to warm up and eat. Probably take some pie, too, if there is any,
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
We went to the Golden Corral yesterday with my sis and hubby, our son and his wife came, too. It was extremely crowed and we went late, guess a lot of people do not cook on Thanksgiving. We have our official Thanksgiving gathering tomorrow with more eating. I have gained a lot of weight, seems I just can not get back on track. I hope you had a good holiday.

Cathy, I am so sorry for your glitch in life, I pray that all may work out for the best. We never know what the morrow will bring and what to do when comes. I am thankful that you have caring children.
