I just stayed home too, alone, didn't talk to a soul all day. 2016 was such a bad year for me, and I am so ready for it to be over! There were some good times, like my week at Lecates, my trip to Ashville and my trip to Ga, but..... Going to TRY to get in here once in a while this year. Not a resolution, but a hope..... Wishing you all a happy, healthy, peaceful year.

I FORGOT..... I'LL GET BACK IN THE SWING, I HOPE.

I PICKED UP SOME INFORMATION ON BRANSON TODAY AT AAA. INTERESTING. GRABBED ONE FOR DISNEYWORLD TOO....

Going to take the Christmas tree down so I can bring in my stationary bike. I've been dieting since Monday, since I had enough pigging out since the beginning of December. I'm on a groove and I'm going to be good.

I hope everyone has a Happy New Years day and I send my blessings to all, to have a healthier year.

God Bless to the New Year! Thank You for sharing and being there, I've enjoyed every minute of it.

Love, Deb

GOSH, LAST DAY OF THE YEAR--ARE YOU READY FOR A NEW YEAR?
I ACTUALLY FELT BETTER WITH THE CLOCK YESTERDAY BUT WAS GLAD WHEN THE LAST GAME WAS OVER AS ONE COACH WAS BEING SUPER WHINY WITH THE REFS.
ANYONE WITH PLANS FOR TONIGHT? NOT ME, I WILL STAY HOME AND BE IN BED BEFORE MIDNIGHT.
HAVE A GOOD LAST DAY!

My mom and dh have a thing at the end of their cane that have 4 sides but does not stick out like some of them do---that helps a lot---but would not really work on icy or snowy walkways like Nancy's.
OOPS, FORGOT THE CAPS---LOL
WAS SO COLD AT THE BB GAMES THAT DH HAD TO BRING ME MORE CLOTHES---TODAY I WILL WEAR MY CUDDLE DUDS.
DEB, I WORK THE SCOREBOARD AT THE GAMES--AND GET PAID FOR THAT ONE---LOL---I TRY TO STAY BUSY, OTHERWISE I WOULD GET BORED.
NEED TO GET READY FOR THE GAMES TODAY---ONLY 4 TODAY--THANKFULLY---THE NEW SCOREBOARD WAS A PIA YESTERDAY--FINALLY GOT USED TO IT BY THE 5TH GAME.
HAVE A GOOD FRIDAY!

DEB. I BOUGHT IT AT THE PHARMACY, IT ATTACHES TO THE BOTTOM OF THE CANE NATURALLY. THERE IS A HINGE ON IT SO AS WHEN YOU DON'T NEED IT IT FOLDS UP. IF YOU HAVE BAD WEATHER THERE THE PHARMACY MUST HAVE THEM, THEY ARE REALLY WORTH IT AND WAS NOT EXPENSIVE.
SNOWING HERE AGAIN AND IS SUPPOSED TO FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS. TEMPS ARE DROPPING TOO. GOING OUT WITH KIRBY THEN I THINK I WILL TAKE DOWN THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS, I LIKE THE DECORATIONS BUT I HAVE SEEN THEM ENOUGH . SO DOWN THEY COME AND I WILL GET MY HOUSE BACK TO NORMAL. HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT DAY emoticon

LECATES, ARE YOU A BASKETBALL COACH TOO? OR IS THIS ANOTHER PART OF YOUR JOB, BESIDES TEACHING? I'M AMAZED HOW MANY THINGS YOU GET INVOLVED IN THROUGH THE YEAR, NO WONDER YOU LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR DAYS OFF.

NANCY, MY HUSBAND JUST HAS THE RUBBER COVER ON HIS CANE. IS THE SPIKES SOMETHING YOU ADDED OR BOUGHT? I'VE SEEN HIM LOOSE HIS FOOTING WHEN THE CANE SLIPS, WHICH HE'S VERY CAUTIOUS WHEN ITS WET. I HAVEN'T SEEN ANY ITEMS IN THE STORE THAT CAN HELP HIM.

I WAS SORRY TO HEAR OF DEBBIE REYNOLD'S PASSING---I KNOW SHE WAS HEARTBROKE AT THE DEATH OF HER DAUGHTER
I HAVE 5 BASKETBALL GAMES TO WORK TODAY--LOOKING FORWARD TO IT BUT KIND OF DREADING THE FIRST GAME AS I GET USED TO THE NEW SCOREBOARD.

NO LECATES THE MAN UPSTAIRS THAT HELP DOES NOT HAVE A DOG, THE GUY DOWNSTAIRS HAS ONE BUT HE IS SO LAZY HE DOES NOT DO ANYTHING. NOT EVEN HIS OWN STAIRS TO GET IN AND OUT. WALKING WAS NOT AS BAD THIS MORNING BUT THANK GOODNESS FOR MY CANE WITH PICKS ON THE END. WE HAVE HAD A LITTLE SNOW SO IT GIVE ME A LITTLE BETTER GRIP.

I KNOW THERE WERE A LOT OF PLACES WITH THIS STORM THAT CAME THROUGH, ACCIDENT GALORE AS WELL. FLIGHTS WERE EITHER DELAYED OR CANCELED EVERYWHERE
THE CITY HAS BEEN BY A COUPLE OF TIMES TO PLOW AS WELL AS PUT SALT. AS WE WALK WE CAN HEAR THE ICE CRACK AND BREAK THE MAN UPSTAIRS HAD CLEARED THE PATHWAY AND PUT SALT DOWN IN THE DRIVEWAY THEN THIS AFTERNOON . I TOOK THE ICE CHOPPER TO THE DRIVEWAY . AND THE ICE LIFTED RIGHT AWAY, I DID ABOUT A 20 INCH WIDTH SO AS I WOULD HAVE STEADY FOOTING TO GET TO THE STREET.

NANCY, IT'S A MISERABLE SIGHT WHEN IT COMES TO FREEZING RAIN. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAD A CHANCE TO SEE THE NEWS ABOUT THE FREEZING RAIN IN OREGON, BUT THERE WERE A LOT OF DUMMY'S THAT THOUGHT THEIR 4 WHEEL DRIVE AND STUDDED TIRES WERE INVINCIBLE TO THE ROAD. GLAD YOU GOT HOME SAFE!

YES I'VE KILLED TOO MANY POINSETTIAS EVERY CHRISTMAS AND TRIED TO SAVE THEM FROM THEIR DEATH.

I NOTICED THIS MORNING THAT THE POINSETTIA HAS STARTED TO GROW MOR LEAVES.. BUT I'LL SAY LIKE YOU DEB, IT IS NOT WARM ENOUGH HERE..AFTER THIS ONE I WILL GIVE UP TOO

WENT TO MY GRAND DAUGHTER'S YESTERDAY, WHAT A MESS THE FREEZING RAIN AND THEN RAIN CAUSED. I HAD TO WALK IN SNOW OVER MY BOOTS TO LEAVE MY GRAND DAUGHTER;S AND TO GET IN HERE. NOT BECAUSE OF SNOW EITHER, IT WAS TO AT LEAST HAVE A BIT OF GRIP, EVERYTHING WAS ICE. THE STAIRS WERE NOT BAD HERE, I HAD PUT SALT BEFORE I LEFT AND I AM SURE THE MAN UPSTAIRS PUT MORE DOWN.AS WE CAME UP THE STAIRS IT WAS BREAKING SO MY SON IN LAW TOOK THE CHOPPER AND CLEARED THEM. MY DAUGHTER TOOK KIRBY FOR A SKATE SO AS I WOULD NOT HAVE TO GO OUT WITH HIM. GOD ONLY KNOWS WHAT IT IS LIKE THIS MORNING, I HAVE NOT BEEN OUT OR EVEN LOOKED OUT THE FRONT, THE BACK LOOKS LIKE A SKATING RINK. ALL OF MY NEIGHBORS ARE HOME AS THEIR CARS ARE IN THEIR PARKING SPOTS.ALTHOUGH KIRBY IS STILL SLEEPING I WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE TO TAKE HIM OUT

GOOD MORNING! GOING TO FEEL LIKE THE START OF SPRING HERE TODAY---CRAZY WEATHER PATTERN IS NORMAL FOR US THOUGH--THAT'S WHY WE DON'T HANDLE THE SNOW OR REALLY COLD WEATHER WELL HERE.
NANCY, GLAD YOU HAD A GOOD TIME---SOUNDS LIKE THE PLANT WAS THIRSTY.
I HAD THE HOUSE ALL TO MYSELF YESTERDAY MORNING---IT FELT GOOD TO BE ALONE FOR ONCE. PART OF THE TIME I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE THE TV ON---THAT WAS REALLY NICE. STARTED WATCHING "THE CROWN' ON NETFLICK ABOUT QUEEN ELIZABETH'S EARLY YEARS--GOT THRU 3 EPISODES---REALLY GOOD
HAVE A GOOD TUESDAY!

NANCY, I'VE GIVEN UP ON POINSETTIA'S LIVING IN OREGON. IN CALIFORNIA THEY WOULD SURVIVE ALL YEAR ROUND AND GET BIGGER THAN A BUSH. IF YOU HAD A GREENHOUSE THAT WAS HEATED AND PROPER LIGHT I WOULD IMAGINE IT WOULD MAKE IT. THEY DO LOSE THE LEAVES, IN THE WINTER, BUT IT COMES BACK.

LECATES, HOPEFULLY THE WOODPECKER WON'T DAMAGE THE TREE, I'LL HAVE TO TAKE A BETTER LOOK NEXT TIME.

DEB, YOU WERE ONLY MAKING SURE THAT THE WORLD WOULD BE A BIT BRIGHTER--SOMETIMES WE JUST HAVE TO DO IT ON SUNDAYS---BUT I WON'T MOW THE LAWN ON A SUNDAY---LOL GLAD THE SQUIRRELS ARE BEHAVING THEMSELVES--NOT SURE IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT A WOODPECKER THOUGH---BOY, THEY CAN BE NOISY.
MIGHT GO DO A BIT OF SHOPPING OR MIGHT JUST STAY HOME BY MYSELF--DH IS GOING OVER TO MICHAEL'S TO HELP CUT UP A TREE--NOTHING THAT I COULD DO TO HELP.

EVELEYN, GLAD TO HEAR YOUR GRANDSON IS DOING BETTER. KIDS CAN REALLY SCARE EVERYONE, WHEN THEY GET REAL SICK.

LECATES, FINALLY PLANTED THE DAFFODILS, THEY WERE STARTING TO GROW IN THE GARAGE. MY NEIGHBOR HAPPENED TO SEE ME PLANTING THEM AND WAS QUESTIONING ME ABOUT WORKING IN THE YARD, ON CHRISTMAS DAY. I TOLD HIM I WANTED TO GET THE BULBS IN BEFORE THE NEXT SNOW STORM. I'M GUILTY, BUT I HOPE THE LORD WILL FORGIVE ME.

NANCY, THERE IS A LIQUID THAT HELPS OUT WITH PROMOTING PLANTS TO ROOT, IN CASE YOUR DOWN TO THE LAST PIECE OF THE PLANT. HATE TO SEE YOU LOSE THE PLANT IF YOU'VE HAD IT FOR A LONG TIME.

THE RED AND WHITE AMARYLLIS IS DONE FLOWERING, SO I STILL HAVE THE WHITE AMARYLLIS THAT WILL BE NEXT TO FLOWER.
WHEN I WAS OUT TODAY PLANTING MY DAFFODILS I FOUND THAT THE SQUIRRELS HADN'T EATEN MY TULIPS OR CROCUS, SO I WAS REALLY HAPPY ABOUT THAT.
I WAS ALSO VISITED BY A WOODPECKER PECKING AT MY TREE, WHICH I WASN'T HAPPY ABOUT. THE WOODPECKER WAS NOT SCARED OF ME, SO WE DEFINITELY HAVE A PROBLEM.

IT WAS A NICE SUNNY DAY, BUT TOMORROW IT WILL BE RAINING. emoticon emoticon

NANCY, HOPE YOU HAD A PLEASANT DAY WITH THE FAMILY.
WE HAD A PLEASANT DAY AND NOW ARE AT HOME HAVING A QUIET EVENING.
HEARD FROM JOJO---SHE ENDED UP IN THE ER FROM DEHYDRATION--THINGS ARE NOT MUCH BETTER FOR HER SO KEEP HER IN YOUR PRAYERS.
ALSO GOT A MESSAGE FROM WILSON---HER PARENTS FELL AND ENDED UP IN THE HOSPITAL AND THEN IN NURSING HOME FOR REHAB---THEY HAD TO DECIDE IF THEY WOULD STAY LONG TERM IN NURSING HOME OR GO TO HER HOUSE---YOU ALL KNOW HER, SHE BROUGHT THEM HOME AND WAS NOT GETTING MUCH SLEEP---EVERY 2 HOURS SHE WAS UP WITH THEM---SHE WAS ABLE TO GET A SITTER TO COME IN ONE DAY AND SHE SLEPT FOR 14 HOURS STRAIGHT---SO KEEP HER IN YOUR PRAYERS ALSO.

NANCY, I DON'T THINK HOUSEPLANTS HAVE A SEASONAL ISSUE BECAUSE THEY ARE INSIDE ALL THE TIME --MAYBE ONES THAT ARE PUT OUTSIDE IN THE SUMMER MIGHT---BUT MOST ARE TROPICAL AND GROW YEAR ROUND---BUT ALL PLANTS HAVE A DORMANT STAGE, JUST NOT AS NOTICEABLE WITH THE HOUSE PLANTS--EXCEPT MAYBE ORCHIDS---THAT IS VERY DIFFERENT---i HAVE A PLANT ON THE WASHER THAT I HAVE TRAILING OVER THE WINDOWS IN THERE---IT IS ACTUALLY MY CURTAIN IN THERE---LOL---AS THE STRANDS GET LONGER I WEAVE THEM IN AND OUT OF EACH OTHER BACK TO THE OTHER SIDE---I PROBABLY NEED TO REPOT IT BUT WHAT A NIGHTMARE THAT WILL BE TO BRING THE VINES DOWN---SO I HAVE BEEN GIVING IT PLANT FOOD A BIT MORE OFTEN
EVELYN, HOPE YOU DON'T CATCH WHAT HE HAS---HOPE HE FEELS BETTER FOR CHRISTMAS MORNING.
WENT TO SEE THE NEW STAR WARS MOVIE YESTERDAY---LOVED IT---AND ALSO GOT ALL THE PRESENTS WRAPPED---TODAY WILL BE BAKING COOKIES AND CLEANING---AND DH WILL BE HELPING DO THAT---LOL

I REMOVED THE FOIL, AND I HAVE ONLY WATERED ONCE SINCE THE EARTH IS STILL GOOD AND MOIST. ON THE GOOGLE THEY SAY TO PUT IT IN FILTERED LIGHT AND WATER WHEN NEEDED AND TO GIVE IT FERTILIZER EVER FEW WEEKS. SO THAT WAS NO HELP. I NEVER HAD ANY LUCK WITH THEM, MY OTHER HOUSE PLANTS THRIVE IN MY HOUSE.. I WENT INTO THE SPARE ROOM THIS MORNING AND WILL DEFINATELY HAVE TO DO SOMETHING WITH THE PLANT IN THERE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE NAME OF THE PLANT IS BUT I HAVE HAD IT FOR YEARS, EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE I CUT OFF PIECES OF ABOUT 4 INCHES LONG, CHANGE THE EARTH (AS IT IS USUALLY FULL OF ROOTS) AND REPLANT THE PIECES,, WELL IT IS ABOUT 2 T0 3 FEET LONG AGAIN.. MAYBE I WILL JUST RAISE THE LONG STEMS AND PUT THEN THROUGH THE PLANTER..MY MOM HAD TOLD ME TO NEVER CUT/TRANSPLANT IN WINTER BUT I HAVE CUT THEM DOWN IN ALL SEASONS AND IT DOES FINE,

NICE AND MILD HERE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAY (ABOVE 0f) BUT WE ARE TO GET A LITTLE SNOW, BETTER GET ON THE GO AND START BY TAKING KIRBY OUT THEN LAUNDRY AND VACUUM, HAVE A GOOD FRIDAY EVERYONE AND TAKE CARE

NANCY, DID YOU ONLY WATER ONCE? DID YOU OVERWATER WHEN YOU DID SO THAT IT SAT IN WATER? IF YOU LEFT THE FOIL ON, DID YOU CUT A SLIT AND PUT IT ON A PLATE? I TEND TO FORGET TO WATER MINE--HAVE THEM UP HIGH SO THAT THE CATS WILL LEAVE THEM ALONE. LOSING LEAVES IS KIND OF NATURAL PROGRESSION ON THE PLANT AS IT GROWS BUT NOT FOR ALL OF THEM. I USUALLY CAN KEEP MINE ALIVE UNTIL SUMMER AND THEN PLANT THEM OUTSIDE JUST TO EXPERIMENT WITH THEM---NONE HAVE NEVER DONE AS GOOD AS MY GRANDMOTHER'S DID.
EVELYN, HOPE YOU DON'T CATCH WHAT HE HAD.
I MADE 2 KINDS OF FUDGE YESTERDAY--MOST WILL GO TO OTHERS--DH SHOULD NOT HAVE IT AS HIS SUGAR WAS A LITTLE HIGH TODAY AFTER HE HELPED CLEAN THE POT--LOL
HAVE A GOOD FRIDAY!

LECATES , DO YOU KNOW NOW WHAT HAPPENED THAT SHE HAS A CAST? I HAVE TO DO A GOOGLE FOR MY DAUGHTER ON THE CARE OF A POINSETTIA. I HAD BOUGHT ONE ABOUT A MONTH AGO. THERE ARE NEXT TO NO LEAVES/FLOWERS ON IT. SHE TOLD ME HERS WAS DOING THE SAME. SHE ASKED TOO MUCH WATER, TOO LITTLE WATER, I DON'T KNOW. I WATERED MINE A FEW DAYS AFTER I GOT IT AND THE EARTH IS STILL MOIST.
MY DAUGHTER, SIL AND GD WERE HERE FOR DINNER LAST EVEN AND TOOK MOST OF THE GIFTS OVER TO THEIR PLACE, MY GD WILL COME AND GET THE REST AFTER WORK TOMORROW AS SHE FINISHES EARLY. I WANT TO MAKE THEIR FUDGE BUT I HAVE NO NUTTER LEFT SO I WILL GET HER TO BRING ME A POUND TOMORROW, BETTER THAT WAY ANYWAY CAUSE THAT LEAVES ME LESS TIME TO BE TEMPTED
TEMPS ARE SEASONAL HERE ALTHOUGH WE DID GET LIGHT SNOW OVERNIGHT, HAVE A GOOD DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE

DEB, THEY MIGHT NOT COME UP THIS YEAR BUT SHOULD THE NEXT UNLESS YOU CAN GET THEM IN THE GROUND IN THE BEGINNING OF JANUARY. THEY WILL STILL BE UP LATER THAN OTHERS PLANTED EARLY..
NANCY, I WOULD NEVER JUST WEAR MINE WITHOUT SOMETHING LONG OVER THEM OR UNDER MY PANTS ---AND SOME OTHERS WHO DO DO THAT NEED TO TAKE A GOOD LOOK IN THE MIRROR---LOL
GLAD EVERYONE IS WARMING UP A BIT---IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE 50'S FOR CHRISTMAS DAY.
GOT ABOUT HALF OF MY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS WRAPPED TODAY--HOPE TO FINISH UP TOMORROW.

YESTERDAY THE WEATHERMAN PREDICTED 34 DEGREES, BUT I FIGURED WITH THE SNOW THAT JUST FELL AND WASN'T MELTING FAST, IT WOULD BE LOWER. I ACTUALLY WOKE UP TO 29 DEGREES AND WE HAD FREEZING RAIN FALLING WHEN I LEFT. THE ROADS WERE JUST SLUSHY SO IT WASN'T BAD TO DRIVE ON. IT IS SUPPOSED TO RAIN FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK, BUT, IT WILL BE STAYING IN THE LOW 30'S, BUT CLIMBING TO AROUND 44. ALL WEEK I HAVEN'T SEEN IT GO PAST 33 DEGREES, SO I'M WAITING FOR THE WEATHERMAN TO BE RIGHT.

SPENT THIS WEEKEND BRINGING IN MORE WOOD, SEALED THE FRONT DOOR WITH INSULATION TAPE, VACUUMED THE HOUSE, AND DID A LITTLE SEWING. ALSO I BOUGHT MY SLEEPING BAG AND MATTRESS, TO PREPARE FOR THE NEXT STORM.

NANCY, GLAD THEY CLEANED YOUR STREET , THAT'S SOMETHING THEY DON'T DO TO THE SIDE STREETS, HERE IN OREGON. MAINLY THEY DON'T HAVE THE EQUIPMENT, BECAUSE THEY DON'T EXPECT A LOT OF SNOW, AND THEY ONLY COVER THE FREEWAYS, MAIN STREETS AND CITY BUS ROUTES. OUR POPULATION IS GROWING SO MUCH THAT ITS EASY TO GET INTO A WRECK.

LECATES, I NEVER DID GET A CHANCE TO PLANT MY BULBS. THE WEATHER WAS UNCOOPERATIVE, BUT I HAVE THEM IN THE GARAGE WHERE IT'S COOL. IF I GET A CHANCE WHEN THE GROUND ISN'T FROZEN, I'LL TRY PLANTING THEM. MAY HAVE TO WAIT TILL FEBRUARY OR MARCH.

Keep saying I can do this!

NO I DIDN'T LIKE THE FIT. THEY WERE REALLY TOO SNUG. SHOWED EVERY LITTLE AND BIG PLEAT. LOL
SOME PEOPLE LIKE THEM REAL TIGHT BUT NOT ME.. THE OTHERS I BOUGHT HAVE A PLUSH LINING SO WARMER THAN THE FLEECE
THE TRUCKS HAVE CLEANED UP SO MY WALK LAST EVENING WAS NOT AS BAD AS THE OTHER 2 DURING THE DAY.
OUR TEMPS HAVE DROPPED AGAIN TOO AND ALTHOUGH WE HAVE SUN THE WIND IS STRONG

LECATES YOU ARE GOING TO START WRAPPING?? GOODNESS I WAS FINISHED AGES AGO. THE ONLY THINGS THAT WERE WRAPPED RECENTLY WERE THINGS MY GD OR DD ORDERED ON THE NET AND HAD SHIPPED HERE, I TOLD MY GD ON SATURDAY THAT ONE EVENING WE WOULD HAVE TO GET ORGANIZED TO TAKE EVERYTHING OVER TO HER HOUSE AS THAT IS WHERE I WILL BE CHRISTMAS DAY. THEY ARE COMING FOR DINER ON WEDNESDAY AND THERE WILL BE EITHER 2 OR 3 CAR (DEPENDING IF THEY ALL COME STRAIGHT FROM WORK OR NOT) SO ALL THE GIFTS WILL GO. OTHERWISE MY GD FINISHES EARLY ON FRIDAY AND WILL TAKE THE REST
WELL GOING OUT WITH KIRBY THEN I MUST WASH FLOORS TODAY, DOGGIE PAWS OR NOT. HAVE A GOOD ONE EVERYONE ,, TAKE CARE AND ABOVE ALL STAY WARM

I AM SO GLAD I DON'T LIVE WHERE YOU GALS DO---MAKES ME SHIVER READING ABOUT YOUR COLD TEMPS---IT HAS WARMED UP HERE AND DH DIDN'T NEED A JACKET WHEN HE LEFT FOR CHURCH.

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY AFTER CHURCH---HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT TO FIX FOR DINNER.

NANCY, I'M SO HAPPY YOU FOUND SOME WARM LEGGINGS. THEY PROBABLY ARE REALLY POPULAR NOW THAT IT'S TURNED SO MUCH COLDER. YOU'VE BEEN DOING A LOT OF COOKING AND THAT WILL GIVE YOU A BREAK DOWN THE ROAD. SO SMART!! IT'S GOOD THAT YOU DIDN'T NEED TO GO OUT ANY MORE, WITH THE ROADS SO BAD.

EVELYN, IT'S SUCH A GOOD FEELING TO SEE THE BIRDS EAT, ISN'T IT? WE USED TO DO THAT A LOT UNTIL WE HAD DOGS THAT WOULD CHASE THEM AWAY. I DO LOVE WATCHING THEM THOUGH.

IT'S GOTTEN SO COLD HERE, AND LIKE SOMEONE SAID, WE KNOW THAT IT WILL JUST GET COLDER AND THEY WERE SO RIGHT! TONIGHT WE HAVE A LOW OF -30 DEGREES WITH A -50 WINDCHILL. BY TOMORROW MORNING IN TIME FOR CHURCH, IT WILL BE UP TO -26 AND CLIMBING. IS SUPPOSED TO CLIMB ALL THIS COMING WEEK, WITH IN THE TEENS ABOVE ANYWAY. THAT'S A LOT OF DIFFERENCE. WE'LL THINK WE'RE IN FLORIDA!!

I'VE BEEN BUSY TODAY WITH CLEANING, DECORATING SOME,DOING MORE CARDS, COOKING, ETC. HAVEN'T DONE ANY MORE BAKING TODAY. I HAVE 3 DIFFERENT COOKIES MADE AND ONE SHEET OF TOFFEE BARS THAT AREN'T EXACTLY COOKIES. DOWNRIGHT CANDY I WOULD SAY. MY FAMILY'S FAVORITE. THEY'RE LIKE ALMOND ROCA. OUR NEW COUCH AND RECLINER GOT DELIVERED TODAY, SO THAT WAS A GOOD FEELING. THEY'RE SO PRETTY AND I JUST LOVE THEM.

HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU!!

NANCY, FIND THAT THE 16 IS A BIT TIGHT AND TENDS TO NOT STAY UP BUT THE NEXT SIZE UP IF DEFINITELY COMFORTABLE--NOW IN THE CUDDLE DUDS, THEY FIT FINE AT THE NORMAL SIZE---i THINK THE 16S WERE LIKE 14/16 WHICH IS WHY THEY DON'T FIT WELL. AND A BIT LONGER IN THE NEXT SIZE UP FOR ME, BUT NOT BELOW THE ANKLE.
WE HAVE WARMED UP TO ABOVE FREEZING AND WILL STAY PRETTY MUCH IN OUR NORMAL RANGE FOR THE HOLIDAYS--NO WHITE CHRISTMAS HERE!
ON MY HOLIDAY BREAK--LOTS OF TIME TO WRAP PRESENTS AND MAYBE MAKE SOME FUDGE.
HAVE A GOOD SATURDAY!

OK THANKS, NANCY. I FIGURED IT WAS FAHRENHEIGHT. MY HUSBAND WAS THE ONE THAT HELPED ME WITH THAT. I LOVE THAT SONG TOO. BUT OH MY, IT IS COLD OUTSIDE. THE BLIZZARD THEY'RE FORECASTING, IS DELAYED UNTIL LATER THIS AFTERNOON, SO WE'RE BRACING UP FOR IT. emoticon I'M DOING LAUNDRY TODAY AND BAKING MORE COOKIES. GETTING THE KITCHEN HEATING UP SOUND GOOD!!

KAREN THAT WAS FAHRENHEIT, IT WAS MINUS 34 CELSIUS AND YES WHEN WE HIT THE HIGHER NUMBERS THEY ARE ABOUT THE SAME. STARTING OFF AT MINUS 11f BUT WITH THE WIND FACTOR IT IS MINUS 20, BUT THE SUN IS SHINNING SO THAT MAKES IT LOOK BETTER, I SAY LOOKS CAUSE I HAVE NOT BEEN OUT YET, KIRBY IS STILL CURLED UP SLEEPING..
I WAS CHECKING DIFFERENT SITES FOR THE LINED LEGGINGS AND I MAY BE ABLE TO GET THEM IN EITHER SEARS OR WALMART. SEARS HAS SOME SIZE 2X/3X BUT 2X IS NO GOOD FOR ME AS THE WAIST NOR HIP FIT.
TAKE CARE ALL AND STAY WARM
LECATES I LOVE THAT SONG TOO BUT DON'T LIKE THE COLD emoticon IS THERE ANY REASON YOU WENT WITH THE SIZE UP FROM YOUR PANTS?

OH MY, THAT'S TOOOO COLD!! I SUPPOSE YOU'RE LIKE US, WHERE YOU FEEL THAT WINTER HAS COME AS A BANG AND TOO EARLY. ARE YOU SAYING THAT IT'S -29 CELCIUS OR FAHRENHEIT? I THINK IT'S AROUND THE SAME.

STAY WARM. YOU'LL BE GETTING THOSE FLEECE-LINED LEGGINGS OR SOMETHING ELSE WARM ON, EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO PULL MORE DOWN WHEN YOU WIDDLE!!! I THOUGHT THAT WAS SO FUNNY!! emoticon

MY GRANDSON CAME TO PICK UP HIS VESTS LAST EVENING. I SHOWED HIM THE 2 PLACES HE WOULD HAVE TO TACK BY HAND AND HE SAID I HAD MUCH MORE THAN HE THOUGHT I COULD. I ALSO ASKED IF HE TOOK THEM OFF TO MOVE THEM AROUND AND OF COURSE THE ANSWER WAS YES. I TOLD HIM THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR ANYTHING ELSE, HE AGREED
WENT AROUND THE BLOCK WITH KIRBY THIS MORNING, BLOWING SNOW WAS SOMETHING ELSE, IT HAD SNOWED A BIT OVERNIGHT BUT NOT ENOUGH TO EVEN TALK ABOUT AND TODAY THE WIND IS STRONG AND MAKING SNOW DRIFTS ON THE SIDE WALKS, TODAY IS THE COLDEST DAY SINCE LAST MARCH, ALTHOUGH I THOUGHT WE HAD COLDER BUT THE WIND IS USUALLY A FACTOR
STAY WARM AND TAKE CARE ALL

OH, MY, I AM SO GLAD I DON'T LIKE WHERE CONDITIONS GET THAT BAD---BUT GUESSING YOU ARE USED TO THEM SO IT REALLY DOESN'T STOP YOU TOO OFTEN.
NOT MUCH GOING ON HERE AT SCHOOL---SOME TEACHERS GIVING TESTS WHILE OTHERS ARE DOING NOTHING OR PACKING FOR THE MOVE---GLAD KIDS ARE DONE AFTER TODAY---WISH I COULD NOT COME IN TOMORROW---TEMPTING---I MIGHT JUST GO HOME EARLY ANYHOW.

THEY PREDICTED IT TO BE COLD AND SNOWY LAST WEEK AND THIS ONE AND THEY WERE RIGHT FOR A CHANGE. HA! IT'S -1 RIGHT NOW AND THEY SAY IT FEELS LIKE -26 WITH THE WIND. THERE IS QUITE A BREEZE. MY HUSBAND HAD TO GO TO TOWN SO I WENT ALONG AND HE DROPPED ME OFF AT ALDI'S WHILE HE WENT TO MILLS FLEET FARM. SO I WAS HAPPY TO GET ALL THE REST OF MY GROCERY LIST, THE RIGHT NUTS AND DRIED FRUIT FOR RECIPES, ETC. WOW, THE GROCERIES GET MORE SPENDY WITH GETTING EXTRA GOODIES FOR COOKIES AND CANDIES. I'M BEGINNING TO FEEL THE MOTIVATION AND THE DISCIPLINE I NEED TO NOT EAT. I'M ZEROING IN ON HOW I FEEL AFTER I EAT GOODIES LIKE THAT AND TOO MUCH OF THEM, JUST DOESN'T FEEL GOOD, SO THAT'S A BLESSING TO ME. emoticon

DEB, YOU WERE ASKING ABOUT HOW MUCH SNOW WE HAVE. WELL IT COMES AND GOES, AS FAR AS THE WIND TAKING IT, BUT I WOULD SAY THAT WE HAVE ABOUT 6" RIGHT NOW. AS FAR AS THE STATE KEEPING THE ROADS CLEAR, THEY DO AS WELL AS THEY CAN. IF IT'S REAL STORMING, THEY WON'T GO OUT WITH THE PLOWS UNTIL IT'S CALMED DOWN. PRETTY MUCH THAT'S WHEN NO TRAVEL IS ADVISED. SO MANY CANCELLATIONS ALL AROUND. PRETTY MUCH EVERYBODY COMES TO A STANDSTILL, EXCEPT FOR THOSE THAT HAVE TO BE AT THEIR JOBS, ETC. LIKE MY MEN THAT HAVE TO GET OUT AND FEED THE ANIMALS AND MILK THE COWS!! MY HUSBAND TALKS ABOUT, WHEN HIS GRANDPARENTS LIVED HERE, THAT THERE WERE TIMES WHEN THEY TIED A ROPE FROM THE HOUSE TO THE BARN TO FIND IT. WE HAVE NEVER DONE THAT, BUT PROBABLY SHOULD'VE AT TIMES!! THEY'RE CALLING FOR 5" OF SNOW FOR FRIDAY WITH WIND, SO THAT WILL BE A BLIZZARD.

AS FAR AS SEWING, I JUST HAVE A REGULAR MACHINE AND I MAINLY MEND FARMING JEANS, COVERALLS, JACKETS, ETC. A LOT OF HEAVY DENIM MATERIAL. I CAN GET BY WITH USING DENIM NEEDLES, BUT STILL CAN BREAK THEM. I JUST KEEP WORKING IT AND GET THE JOB DONE. I HAVE MORE TO DO NOW, SO I NEED TO DO IT.

TIME TO GET BAKING MY CHOCOLATE CRINKLE COOKIE. THE DOUGH'S BEEN IN THE FRIDGE ALL NIGHT AND IS SITTING ON THE COUNTER FOR ME NOW.

STAY WARM EVERYBODY!!

DEB, I HAD MUCH LESS TROUBLE USING MY INDUSTRIAL MACHINES THAN I DO THIS LITTLE HOUSEHOLD ONE. I AM A SEAMSTRESS AND WORKED FOR MANY DIFFERENT FACTORIES, THIS MACHINE I JUST ADJUST THE NEEDLE FROM LEFT TO RIGHT AND MANAGE TO SEW CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE EDGE OF THE PATCH,, I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY ROOM ON THE VEST FOR ANY MORE emoticon YOUR BIG SPOOLS ARE PROBABLY GONE SHOP ROT.

LECATES I THOUGHT YOU WERE SENDING THE COLD AS WE ARE GOING INTO THE DEEP FREEZE AS OF TOMORROW

BE CAREFUL ON THE ROADS EVERYONE, STAY SAFE AND WARM

WELL GANG, THE SNOW IS PREDICTED TO BE HERE BETWEEN 10 AM - NOON. I HAVE A CHIROPRACTOR APPOINTMENT AT 4 PM. I'M NOT SURE IF I'M GOING TO MAKE THAT OR GO HOME EARLY. I'LL HAVE TO CALL THEM TO SEE HOW THE ROADS ARE BEFORE I GO.

NANCY, MY AUNT HAD A HEAVY DUTY MACHINE THAT WOULD DO UPHOLSTERY, WHICH I STILL HAVE, BUT I HAVEN'T USED IT. I'VE KEPT ALL THE ATTACHMENTS AND I HAVE ALL THE BIG SPOOL THREADS, THAT SHE USED, BUT MIGHT NOT BE GOOD ANYMORE. I'VE NEVER SEWN A PATCH WITH MY MACHINE, I ALWAYS HAVE DONE IT BY HAND. DON'T ASK ME WHY, BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT I'D MESS IT UP. I HAVE ONLY THE METAL THIMBLE'S WHICH ONE WAS MY GRANDMOTHER'S.

LECATES, THIS IS JUST ANOTHER ROUND OF THE SNOW WE HAD LAST WEEK, SO JUST BRACE YOURSELF AND KEEP WARM. I JUST HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE TRAFFIC TO SETTLE DOWN BEFORE I GO OUT, WHICH I'M HOPING MOST OF ALL THE LUNATICS ARE HOME.

KEEP WARM BY THE FIRE, OR INSIDE, AND HAVE A HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

Keep saying I can do this!

Cuddle DUDS ARE REALLY REALLY SOFT AND MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE AND WARMER THAN THERMAL ONES----WHEN IT GETS REALLY COLD, I WILL WEAR THEM TO SCHOOL UNDER CLOTHES, ESP. ON MONDAYS WHEN THE HEAT HAS BEEN OFF ALL WEEKEND----I KNOW, CRAZY BOARD OF ED---THANKFULLY DON'T NEED THEM OFTEN---AND IF I HAVE TO GO OUT TO SHOVEL SNOW, THEY ARE A REAL LIFESAVER---I LIKE THE TOPS AS THEY HAVE A THUMB HOLE SO YOU CAN PUT IT OVER YOUR THUMB AND THE SLEEVES WON'T RIDE UP WHEN YOU PUT ON ANOTHER TOP PLUS THE SLEEVE STAYS DOWN WHEN YOU ARE OUTSIDE WORKING WITH THE SHOVEL---BUT i DON'T LEAVE IT ON MY THUMB UNLESS I AM WORKING OUTSIDE---ANNOYS ME OTHERWISE---LOL MY MOM LIKES THEM, TOO. WALMART AND SAM'S CLUB USUALLY HAVE THEM---HAVE SEEN THEM ELSEWHERE, TOO.
OKAY, WHICH ONE OF YOU IS SENDING THE COLD MY WAY? IT COMES IN LATE TONIGHT ALONG WITH WIND CHILLS---BRRRRRR
ENJOY THE COOKIE BAKING AND ENJOY SOME HOT CHOCOLATE WHILE YOU STAY IN OUT OF THE COLD.
hAVE A GOOD WEDNESDAY!

ALWAYS DID AND EVEN MY MOTHER LAUGHED AT ME.I DO HAVE A COLLECTION OF FANCY THIMBLES BUT THEY ARE FOR SHOW. THEY ARE GLASS AND KNOWING MYSELF I WOULD DROP ONE AND BREAK IT THEN HAVE TO GO ON A TRIP TO REPLACE IT,, NOOOO.. I SURE MISS MY INDUSTRIAL MACHINES

THE LANDLORD PAYS FOR SNOW REMOVAL BUT THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE STAIRS AND WALKWAY,I USE A SMALL HAND PLOW AND I ALSO HAVE A CHOPPER FOR ICE.. I JUST CAME IN FROM WALKING KIRBY AT IT IS SNOWING AGAIN, OH WELL IT IS WINTER AND I DO LIVE IN EASTERN CANADA.

OUR DAUGHTER WAS JUST IN SEATTLE AND SHE SAID THAT THAT'S HOW THOSE DRIVERS ARE THERE TOO. SO MANY FROM CA AND THAT'S THE WAY IT WAS WHEN I WAS GROWING UP THERE, OVER 30 YEARS AGO NOW. MOSTLY EVERYONE HERE IN MN KNOWS HOW TO DRIVE IN IT. REAL SNOW WITH NO SPEEDING! OR EVEN GO BY WHAT THE MPH SIGN SAYS, BECAUSE THE ROAD CONDITIONS ARE WHAT TELL US HOW TO DRIVE. I THINK THE STORES MUST REALLY SUFFER AT TIMES THIS COLD, BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE JUST STAY HOME, EXCEPT THOSE THAT HAVE TO GO OUT. SO MANY APPTS, ETC., ARE CANCELLED. LIKE I DID WITH MINE FOR TOMORROW. I MADE WALNUT SPICE KISSES COOKIES AND HAVE CHOCOLATE CRINKLE COOKIE DOUGH IN THE FRIDGE FOR TOMORROW. I REALLY LOVE THIS TIME OF THE YEAR WITH THE BAKING AND HOW FRIENDLY PEOPLE ARE MORE NOW.

CUDDLE DUDS I FEEL, ARE GLORIFIED LONG JOHNS. THEY'RE FOR WOMEN AND ARE MADE OF A SOFTER MATERIAL. I DON'T HAVE ANY BECAUSE I DON'T STAY OUT THAT LONG THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. NO SLEDDING, WALKING, ETC. FOR ME.

HAVE A GOOD EVENING! emoticon

LECATES, I'VE NEVER HEARD OF CUDDLE DUDS, AND IT'S A CUTE NAME. IF THEY KEEP YOU WARM THAT'S ALL YOU CARE ABOUT. YOU MAY HAVE TO SEND A PICTURE TO NANCY.

NANCY, I HAVE A BIT OF SEWING TO DO, MY GRANDDAUGHTER LOVES WEARING DRESSES AND SHE PRETTY MUCH WEARS THEM OUT. I HAVE ONE THAT THE SKIRT PART IS COMING UNDONE FROM THE TOP SECTION.
SOUNDS LIKE THE MATERIAL WAS VERY THICK TO GET THE NEEDLE THROUGH. EVEN IF YOU USE A THIMBLE ON YOUR FINGER TO PUSH THE NEEDLE THROUGH, IT'S HARD TO PULL THE NEEDLE THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE. I CAN FEEL YOUR PAIN.
DOES YOUR LANDLORD HAVE A SNOW BLOWER TO HELP OUT WITH THE SIDEWALKS?

KAREN, ABOUT HOW MUCH SNOW DO YOU HAVE? DOES THE STATE HELP KEEP THE MAIN ROADS CLEAR? I WOULD IMAGINE THE RANCHERS GET TOGETHER TO HELP EACH OTHER OUT.

I APPRECIATE THAT YOU DON'T LAUGH AT MY STORIES OF MY WEATHER FORECAST. TOMORROW WE'LL BE GETTING ANOTHER SNOW STORM, WHICH DOESN'T APPEAR WE'LL BE GETTING ANY ICY CONDITIONS IN THE VALLEY, BUT THAT COULD FREEZE AFTER EVERYONE DRIVES OVER THE SNOW. I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SNOW, IT'S BEING HIT BY OTHERS THAT DRIVE TOO FAST, BECAUSE THEY GET TOO CONFIDENT IN THEIR DRIVING SKILLS. OR YOU GET THOSE THAT ARE PETRIFIED AT DRIVING IN THE SNOW. LIVING IN THE CITY, YOU HAVE TOO MANY CARS ON THE ROAD, AND SOMETIMES IT'S JUST BEST TO STAY HOME.

EVEN THOUGH THE SNOW IS BEAUTIFUL, TAKE CARE.

LECATES WHAT ARE CUDDLE DUDS? ARE THEY LIKE LONG JOHNS? THERMAL UNDERWEAR? SO NEEDLESS TO SAY IF I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE I DON'T HAVE THEM. THAT WOULD BE AN EXTRA PAIR TO PULL DOWN AT WIDDLE TIME. emoticon
WE HAD QUITE A BIT OF SNOW YESTERDAY, I SHOVELED TWICE AND THIS MORNING THE MAN UPSTAIRS DID IT, HE WAS AT WORK YESTERDAY AND DIDN'T GET HOME TILL AFTER 7.. HE USUALLY DOES IT WHEN HE GETS IN BUT I HAD ALREADY SHOVELED AFTER I WALKED KIRBY.. SNOW REMOVAL PLOW IS HERE RIGHT NOW
GOT MOST OF THE PATCHES SEWN ON MY GRANDSON'S VEST YESTERDAY, I THOUGHT FOR A WHILE THAT I WAS A PIN CUSHION, I SWEAR HE MUST UN-SEW THEM AND PIN THEM ELSEWHERE WHEN HE GETS NEW ONES, I AM GOING TO ASK HIM AND IF THAT IS WHAT HE DOES HE CAN SEW THEM BY HAND, THERE ARE SO MANY ON THE VEST THAT THE VEST DOESN'T FIT UNDER THE OPEN AREA OF THE MACHINE, THERE ARE A LOT THAT ARE SEWN OVER DOUBLE SEAMS AND THEY ARE JEAN VEST... TO THICK TO HANDLE
WELL I HAD BETTER GET DRESSED AND GO OUT WITH KIRBY, HOPE THINGS HAVE BEEN CLEARED A BIT
HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE, STAY SAFE AND WARM

IT'S BEEN SO COLD HERE. ONLY GOT A HIGH OF 2 DEGREES, BUT HARDLY ANY WIND AND WE HAD SOME SUNSHINE TOO. ROADS HAVE BEEN TREACHEROUS AND IT'S TOUGH ON THE SNOWPLOW TO GET OUT AND TAKE CARE OF IT BECAUSE OF MORE HEAVY SNOW OFF AND ON. I DIDN'T GET MY GROCERIES OR MEDS. TODAY, SO THAT WILL HOPEFULLY BE TOMORROW.

I HAVE TO WATCH FOR THE DOGS, SO THEY'RE NOT OUT SO LONG BECAUSE OF THE COLD. OUR ONE DOG WILL BARK WHEN WANTS BACK IN, BUT OUR OTHER ONE DOESN'T, SO I KEEP CHECKING. HE JUST SITS ON THE STEPS AND WAITS FOR ME TO OPEN THE DOOR OR WITH SOMEONE COMING IN.

I'VE GOTTEN A GOOD START ON MY CARDS. WE PUT A PHOTO CARD INTO WALGREEN'S ONLINE AND THE CARDS ARE READY, BUT IT'S 25 MILES TO THE TOWN WHERE THEY ARE, SO WE'LL GET THERE ASAP. A REALLY CONVENIENT WAY TO DO THEM WITH THE TECHNOLOGY THAT'S AVAILABLE THESE DAYS.

STAY WARM EVERYBODY!

SEEMS I STARTED SOMETHING WITH THE LEGGINGS----LOL---BUT THEY ARE A LOT WARMER THAN STOCKINGS AND A LOT EASIER, TOO.
NANCY, I GOT MINE AT WALMART---RIGHT NOW THEY ARE CHRISTMAS PATTERNS THOUGH---BUT THE BLUE AND GREEN PAIR I PLAN ON WEARING ALL WINTER AS THEY DON'T LOOK TOO CHRISTMASY---THEY FELT SO GOOD ON YESTERDAY AND MY LEGS DID NOT GET COLD IN CHURCH EITHER.
KAREN, I LIKE TO SHARE WITH MY COWORKERS---BUT DON'T THINK I WILL GET MORE BAKED THIS WEEK UNLESS I DO IT TOMORROW NIGHT---BUSY WEEK AHEAD.
I DIDN'T GET ANYTHING BAKED YESTERDAY---WENT SHOPPING TO FIND SOME SMALL BOTTLES TO MAKE UP CHILL PILL GIFTS FOR MY CO-WORKERS---FOUND SPICE BOTTLES AT BIG LOTS AT 95 CENTS---JUST RIGHT---FILLED EACH ONE WITH A DIFFERENT COLOR OF M & M'S---THEY LOOK SO CUTE WITH THEIR LABELS ON.
BIG BASKETBALL GAMES THIS WEEK AGAINST OUR CITY RIVALS---TONIGHT WILL BE STRESSFUL AS MY HELPER WILL NOT BE THERE---AT LEAST WE TRAINED A STUDENT AT THE LAST GAME TO HELP ME.
HAVE ANOTHER PT SESSION TODAY---WILL HAVE THEM BE CAREFUL WITH THE RIGHT LEG---IT IS STILL VERY TENDER FROM FRIDAY'S SESSION.
HAVE A GOOD MONDAY!

I NEED TO FIND SOME FLEECE-LINED LEGGINGS TOO, INSTEAD OF KNEE HIGHS OR PANTY HOSE. I HAVEN'T WORN PANTY HOSE FOR YEARS, BECAUSE OF MY HANDS BEING SO FULL OF PAIN, WHEN PULLING THEM UP. I HAVE FOUND THAT LEGGINGS ARE SO MUCH EASIER TO PULL UP TOO. IT'S DEFINITELY FLEECE-LINED CLOTHING, TIME OF THE YEAR! IT'S SNOWING HEAVY NOW AND WE'RE UP TO 17 DEGREES ABOVE, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S TO GET A LOT COLDER THIS COMING WEEK.

I NEED TO START BAKING COOKIES THIS WEEK NOW. HAVE PUT IT OFF, BECAUSE WE EAT THEM SO MUCH AND THERE WOULDN'T BE ANY LEFT FOR THE HOLIDAYS. HA! I JUST HAVE TO MAKE ALOT WHEN I MAKE THEM. I ALWAYS THINK THAT JUST BECAUSE I SHOULDN'T EAT THEM, MY FAMILY NEEDS THEM, BECAUSE IT IS A SPECIAL TIME OF THE YEAR. emoticon

NANCY, I HATE WIND CHILL MORE THAN VERY COLD---NOTHING SEEMS TO HELP WITH THAT.
GOT 2 KINDS OF COOKIES BAKED AND SOME SHOPPING DONE YESTERDAY. NEED TO GO LOOKING FOR SOME SMALL INEXPENSIVE JARS TODAY TO MAKE SOME CHILL PILL GIFTS.
I HAVE A PAIR OF FLEECE LINED LEGGINGS ON TODAY---BOY, ARE THEY MUCH EASIER TO WEAR UNDER DRESSES WITH SOME KNEE HIGHS THAN PUTTING ON PANTY HOSE---AND A LOT WARMER.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

NO LECATES I CAME HOME FULLY DRESSED emoticon NO RICHER BUT NO POORER EITHER, HAD FUN
LAST MONDAY WE HAD FREEZING RAIN HERE, THE CITY HAD SALTED ONE SIDE OF THE STREET BUT FORGOT TO DO THE OTHER, BOY WHAT A MESS THAT WAS AS PEOPLE HEADED DOWN A STEEP HILL, CARS, BUSES, TRUCK, POLICE CAR AND EVEN THE CITY SALT TRUCK/PLOW,
WEATHER HERE IS VERY COLD AS WELL ALONG WITH WIND WHICH MAKES IT FEEL MUCH COLDER.
TAKE CARE ALL AND HAVE A GOOD EVENING, STAY INSIDE AND STAY WARM

NANCY, YOU DIDN'T LOSE YOUR SHIRT, DID YOU? LOL HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD TIME WITH YOUR FRIENDS
DEB, GLAD YOU MADE IT IN TO WORK SAFELY---HOPE IT WAS NOT TOO TREACHEROUS GOING HOME
KAREN, BRRRRR, THAT IS COLD---WE RARELY HAVE TEMPS LIKE THAT HERE BUT I THINK IT WAS LAST WINTER WE HIT THOSE KIND OF LOWS---IT WAS NOT SOMETHING WE KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH.
MY LEGS STARTED TO GET SORE LAST NIGHT AFTER THE PT SESSION IN THE MORNING---TOOK SOME MEDS AND THAT HELPED FOR A WHILE, BUT WOKE UP EARLY DUE TO THE ACHING---WENT AHEAD AND GOT UP----PLAN ON BAKING AT LEAST 2 KINDS OF COOKIES TODAY AND SOME SHOPPING.
STAY WARM AND SAFE!

WOW, IT IS SO BITTER COLD AND WE KNOW IT CAN GET A LOT COLDER HERE. IT HELPS US TO BE ACCLIMATED!! WE HAVE 4 DEGREES RIGHT NOW AT 5:30 PM. OUR DAUGHTER IS PLANNING ON COMING HOME IN THIS FRIGID WEATHER. SHE'S ABOUT 3 HOURS AWAY AND I TOLD HER SHE COULD WAIT UNTIL IT GETS WARMER, BUT YOU KNOW HOW YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE MORE CONFIDENCE. THEN I DO ANYWAY. SHE MISSED HER FATHER'S BIRTHDAY LAST WEEKEND AND IS ITCHING TO COME HOME WITH HIS GOODS! LOL! I TEND TO FRET TOO MUCH I KNOW.

DEB, GLAD YOU MADE IT TO WORK OK. CAN YOU SPEND THE NIGHT THERE IF YOU NEED TO. THIS COLD, SNOWY WEATHER SURE CAME AT A FORCE!!

IT'S 4 DEGREES NOW AND DIDN'T GET MUCH ABOVE THAT AT ALL TODAY. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S GOING TO STICK AROUND FOR ANOTHER WEEK OR SO. WE'LL BE GLAD TO GET A BREAK!

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL, COZY EVENING. emoticon
