Oh wow, it is HEAVEN outdoors today! This is what I would like all year-round!! I have my windows wide open.

Got my hair cut this morning. It had gotten really long and out of control, so I feel better just for that. Then, this afternoon, I took a nice walk and stopped by the quilting store again. It was a good thing I did, because the owner had just scheduled a mini-workshop on tips for appliqueing, which will prod me along on the story quilts.

Kathy, I did not realize the pages didn't load fully when you came back to the site. I have noticed that if I click on an "old" message to get to the link, it doesn't always bring me to the current page, but thought that was a fluke. I'll have to watch for it.

Car racing. Hmmmm. I went to a super-modified race just once. A friend's son was racing and they wanted me to go, although I have zero interest in it. The cars all race around in a circle, at random speeds, so at any given time, the one in first place could be anywhere from the front to the middle to tail-end and who knows which is which? Some cars might have circled 3 times to another one's once. Crazy. Between that and the horrible noise and the nasty fumes (not to mention what they are doing to the environment) I made that my last venture into auto racing. Have gone to a few horse races, but I'm ambivalent about the treatment of the animals. Dog shows I can enjoy - and I love the field trials, especially those Border Collies.

Sorry you're having communication problems, Eileen. Maybe with the new company you'll have better connections.

Well, my daughter wants me to lay out plans for the vegetable garden, so I have to go measure her backyard and see where the best plot will be. We're going to plant peanuts this year! Now that's something I never did in New York! She wants a fig tree, also, but that's probably a little advanced for my skills.

Hi Ladies,
I'm trying to get a few things organized, here. DH is out with Emmy. I didn't go, since I have so much to do, and we have the Birthday party tonight. emoticon
I cooked a bit, and am going to curl my hair, and try to find something to wear. emoticon Have no idea, what??
Eileen, I hope you get your computer fixed up. emoticon
Our weather is not as warm as it was; we did get a bit of snow, but not too much. emoticon It is emoticon at the moment. By next weekend, we'll be back in the Deep freeze, so I guess March, is coming in like a lion. I sure do hope that it goes out, like a lamb.
We don't have car racing much, around here..skidoo, racing is a big sport though.
I'm glad that you are all walking, and doing so well. I hope to get back to it, on Monday. My whole weekend is shot. I may ride my bike, tomorrow night, though. I could do that, and watch the Closing ceremonies of the Olympics. emoticon Have a great afternoon. emoticon Blessings, andrea

55 degrees and sunny....Finally got the car out of the driveway but still had to watch in spots because the ice still hasn't completely melted. We had been borrowing sons truck to run errands.

I've walked 2 miles so far.

Got my 2 miles walked and will go again after dinner then Vicki is coming by to pick up stuff for tomorrow and we will be set planning to cook on the grill and looks like it will be so pretty to do that. The sun is shining in and makes you feel like spring is on the way which indeed it .
I have 2 more pumpkin rolls to finish up. Then it is on to other things and another walk , so got my day planned still have the dining nook and kitchen to mop but will do that after dinner do not want to mess it up. Oh heck we will in the morning any way.
I need to go get something out for dinner I know I am cooking chops and other than that beats me right now. Maybe I will walk into kitchen and be inspired

I knew it! I just knew it!!

It's been a busy week and I haven't been around Spark very much. Stella's birthday was last Saturday. I've been de-cluttering at the house and transporting discarded "goodies" to the DAV. Today I need to do some regular cleaning--including laundry--and enjoy this nice day that is set to disappear with tomorrow's weather.

I finally have everything I need in order to prepare for income taxes. YEA!!

HI Ladies, I am at the library. My computer , phone and cable are not in service right now.
Changing carriers and they could not do the hook up Thursday, problem with the wires outside, so they will do it on Monday and hopefully Tuesday I will be hooked up again, with new company. So it seems it is always something going on. Having to use my cell since my phone is off too. OH well, not forever, and they did give me a credit since they disconnected me and could not hook back up (with the old carrier). YUCK!! emoticon I will need to notify all too that my email address will be changing, so will let you all know when I am back in service.
Enjoy the weekend, eat healthy and stay active. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon hugs, Ei

Rosie right now Vicki is trying her best to get him to go to the race but he said he had rather watch it on TV guess to annoy me. Most of the time I find something else to do and tune the TV and him both out .
Been cleaning so things look better. Need to go finish up

Good morning, Spark friends. Merri, no sun yet this morning here, but, still very windy. we get that around here, too where people don't take care of their garbage cans. Our trash goes out on Mondays unless it's a holiday, and I see neighbors trash cans blow around, I try to take care of mine as soon as they have been emptied by the trash collector. Sometimes if my next door neighbors knows that no one is home, they will bring my barrels up to my garage for me.

Kirby, I like auto racing, too and horse racing, and I also like to watch the dog shows, I don't have cable, or satellite so I don't get to watch all of that stuff anymore. I have an older television and have a converter box for it. I don't think I need to spend money on a new T V when the one I have works fine. I have had it for years. I get a few channels, not all that I would like to get, but I do get the local news and etc

Be back later, maybe.

Morning everyone got stuff to do today so need to get at it , I need to do some mopping and the usual cleaning so things will look kind of ok for tomorrow , kids will be here for a cook out and that will be fun . I enjoy having them . Vicki and her dad share a passion for auto racing so that is on their to do list. Racing has been idle during the cold months and they miss it. It seems funny that my daughter likes that and they have been to a race in Fla. but I did not go. Ethan ,Harley and I stayed at the condo and had pizza .
got to get busy

Rosie, Once again we are sharing the same kind of weather. We still have someone's garbage can in our front yard. No takers yet LOL...

Oh the sun is shining so nicely here this morning. It is hard to believe it is only 16 out there tho. I will take it anyway, it looks so warm.

Not much going on here for us this weekend. Our DS will fly back to Afghanistan later today. We really missed him not coming home this time, but as we told him, it was best to stay in Vegas where it was nice and warm and he could at least get outside LOL...

Oh yes, Kirby I came home from work and have stayed home, I have tomorrow off from work, but, back to work again on Sunday. It was snoing and blowing pretty hard when I got out of work. I am quite a ways away from the Bridge about 90 miles south of it. They closed a lot of schools today as well.

We got terrible weather here this morning. But, I guess that is the only thing I have been able to post about LOL...Very strong winds and that makes the roads into black ice....

Hey, the lady next door left the mean neighbor last night at 9:45 PM and is still gone! Maybe just maybe she had enough of him finally. He has been so mean to her since she got home from being in the hospital over a month from her brain surgery.

We have seen her son coming over there and taking her with him. Last night she took her own car. It is not there this morning...Oh, I sure hope she has finally learned her lesson this time.

I don't like it that drastic either but that is what happened this year. Usual while everyone is freezing we are averaging about 55 to 60. This has been an unusual year hope it settles down some to normal then again this has not been normal . Guess that is why I have complained all winter I guess .
got to go and check my kindle don't know if it has charged or not hate to let it get to low because I read off and on at night . If I wake up and can not sleep I grab it and read or play cards. gosh I am spoiled

From freezing to 80, Kirby? That's too extreme for me. We're enjoying 60s. I like 70s too, but those are the healthiest temps for me.

Margie, I heard they were watching for tornado formations in Tennessee. Could that be what's causing the winds you're getting? We're expecting rain tomorrow, but the temperatures are staying mild - at least for now.

I found a wonderful book on story quilts, today, so now I'm imagining all sorts of neat ideas for the kids. I REALLY have got to make a decision and move ahead or my great-great-great grandchildren will be wondering when I'll finish!

Frances..."Our" floods is something I've gotten used to. We didn't live here when the gas company put the bridge in and they used too small culverts. Usually the culverts fill up with tree limbs, and the water goes across the bridge then. The gas company needed the bridge built for a right of way to their well. We drive across the bridge to get to our driveway. It usually goes down the same day and if we have to get out we can take a lonnnng walk around the side of the hill which brings us out maybe 1/2 mile down the road. I'd like to put in a bridge that we could at least walk across but emoticon.

I've walked 2 miles so far.

Check back later, Margie

Wow Margie - first it's snowstorms, then floods! Never a dull moment for you.

Merri, did your fish survive without the heater? Those bills sound fishy too - LOL.

On my way to shop for quilting fabrics and enjoy the sunshine. Kilean has his nose pressed to the window, so I guess he wants to go out, too.

I think we got some good news yesterday. LOL I had gotten my gas & light bill on line on the 6th and it said we owed $524. Boy, did I ever have Ken go out and un-plug the heater in the fish pond!!

Oh yes, we did convince our DS to stay in Vegas this time he is home. Why come home to this terrible weather we have had this month. I want him to enjoy his visit and he seems to be happy visiting with his X in Vegas..

Now, yesterday we got another bill for the gas & lights and it is only $247! Now, that I look at the first email, it doesn't have any logal of the WE energy sign on there. I am going to keep
the first email and wait and see if anyone else does anything on our TV station.

I am thinking the first one is someone just goofing off now...I will see when the bill actually comes in the mail....Some of the info on the first one does look real tho....Once our bill comes, we may call the WE energy com. too...

Good Morning....Possible rain showers, high 59 today and possible flooding...actually I can't see our bridge at the end of the driveway from the back porch, so I am going to go see if the water is coming up, yet!!!

Check back later, Margie

Sitting here trying to come up with an idea for a birthday present for the youngest grandchild...she will be 2 next week. Thinking an outfit and a "learning" toy. I have her card which I'll put $2.00 in!

Walked 4 miles today and had to push myself to do that.

Having a heat wave..40 degrees out there tonight.

Talk tomorrow, Margie

Merri my brother lives outside Atlanta and he said it was nice and sunny right now and the planes were leaving AND HAD BEEN SINCE Friday (I think) His wife went to DC and he was there. I think the days are correct so your son should have no trouble getting there and back out
It is so pretty outside and is very warm I walked 2 miles and my poor foot started hurting me so came back will walk again after dinner.
My caps were on and did not even notice it .
got to go and stir something

Our DS has been in the USA from Afghanistan and is by his X in Vegas. We keep telling him to stay there where it is warm and he can ride is motorcycle. We will see him in the summer when he comes back home...

He is going to try and go back to Afghanistan on Sat. We sure hope that Atlanta is going to be nice and clear now so he can at least get out.

Ok, here comes the nasty weather again tomorrow. At least we are getting a few days of nice weather and the snow has melted some.

I seen the lady next door with the mean neighbor going with her son in the big snow storm on Tues. I have a feeling so she back in the hospital again. Poor thing, I just don't know why she just doesn't leave him...She has been living there around 8-9 years now.

Thanks for the birthday wishes for my mil. Like my mom, she too, is quite the woman. She is in good health. She still lives by herself. We have been trying to get her to move in with us but she keeps putting it off. I know she doesn't want to leave her house...she and fil had been married 65 years when he died. Luckily, she only lives 5 minutes away!

Walked 4.5 miles today. Keep trying to get the scales to budge! They haven't went down in so long I think they are broke. emoticon

See ya tomorrow, Margie
