It's cold here also but no snow thank the Lord for that.
I got paid a day early so I paid one bill and the rest will be on the first or the second cause one is due tomorrow so I'll have to wait until Monday and the rent comes out on the 5th so today I'm going shopping for a bit and have to buy a battery that I forgot last Wed afternoon cause I put the battery in my purse and didn't take my purse but my wallet instead. The walk will do me some good cause if my left knee. I didn't tell you about that but when I get up from the chair it pop's or snaps and I went to the doctors and she told me I had runners knee and she asked if I ran and I said hell no I'm not that stupid. And at my age sometimes my feet don't want to do what my brain wants it to. But it's getting better everyday so I'm happy about that.

Now I know how some family members feel when some one murders their loved ones.
All I can say is that thank the Lord I wasn't there when he did this to his wife cause if I was then I would not be here today.

Wow, Dar. I can't even imagine being that close to someone who has those types of problems that they would take the life of someone else. I can understand why you would want to go to his trial. I hope that if he is mentally disturbed that he gets treatment, but other people need to be protected from him in the future.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. It is cold here, but beautifully sunny day with some melting in the sun.

I'm glad that you found wallpaper that you like and glad that you are getting something done.
Sorry I haven't been here for a while but I thought I would pop in and say hi to all of you today.
I'll be gone for couple of day since a friend of mine who killed his wife is going to have his trial this coming Wed and my other friends and I want to be there. It's hard to believe a friend would do a thing like that but I haven't seen him in a long time. The last time I've seen Mike was about 4 yrs ago when they came over for a visit and Mike put up a book shelf for me and they also took me to Church and that was the last time I've saw him and now this. Before he did all this he cut his throat and stabbed his chest and all I can say he was nuts. But he was never like this in the first place until he lost his job and that what started the whole thing. So I'm angry with him for what he did and one of these days I'll forgive him but not now. And it will be up to the judge if he goes to jail for the rest of his life or go to a hospital jail but all I can say is it's going to one or the other and that is why I'm going to court to fine out. My other girlfriend knew Val for over 50 yrs and I knew her for over 34 yrs and now we won't see her until we are call home. And I'll tell you the out come of this trial when I get home.
Have a blessed weekend and the week ahead.
Love to all, Dar

Judith--I did find wallpaper yesterday. It was found in the wallpaper shop that is about 15 miles away, but around here that is probably considered local. There are shops, etc. here in my town, but any of the bigger stores (other than Wal Mart) are a drive out of town away--anywhere between 30 and 45 miles to the larger box stores where the best variety is.

The wallpaper was a very pale green textured vinyl with a fabric back. It looks great with my new shower curtain, I know I am going to have an adjustment period getting used to it after the flower print that I have had, but I really think it will look wonderful. Now to summon the energy to do the work. This next week is too filled with appointments, but perhaps the week after.

I am glad that your weather is gradually improving and with that your health. I will continue to pray that you continue to feel better.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. March is coming!

emoticon Eileen, step by step things are improving, I will be glad when the dampness and the wet is less and we have weather that is not so changeable, that will make a huge difference and allow my body to adjust to each new season.

Your day sounds lovely, hope you got into town for your shopping, that would be awesome if you can find some wallpaper for your bathroom, hopefully you find some local rather than having to drive 15 miles away. Hope you have a great weekend...

Hope you all are having a great day...

Let's have a "Happy" Friday, focusing on our dreams, goals and what we want to accomplish and move forward to the Finishing Line...We can together... emoticon emoticon

Yesterday was a beautiful day with temps in the 30's and it has made me long for spring. At least days like yesterday make me hopeful. Today is a little cooler, but all in all not a bad day. I am hoping to go out of town to some shopping and perhaps find wallpaper to finish my downstairs bath. There is just nowhere in my town that has wallpaper that I know of. The closest place is about 15 miles away.
Judith-- I am so sorry to learn that you are still struggling with your flare. I will continue to pray that you find some relief, and the dampness in your areas improves to give you that relief.

Praying for those of you who need them. Hugs for everyone.
Eileen

Eileen, I know but in Stanley Park Vancouver, there are plenty and in my garden I have crocus and tulips that have come up, the tulips are just the stems but my crocus are in full bloom, so pretty in purple... I can totally understand that all the snow would play on your emotions, here at my end apart from the mountain areas and other parts of BC who are snowed under, we are getting a lot of wet weather, more than I can remember in past winters, we got a little snow, and we have had some lovely warmer sunny days but more wet than enough which has played havoc on my arthritis...anyway enough of that...Hope things improve at your end and nicer and warmer days come... emoticon

emoticon Team for those who are continuing to pray me through this most difficult time in my life, this flare has been one of the worst I've experienced, it has to do with all the drastic weather changes we have had here. It has caused my arthritis to flare and big time. I know this will pass and I will be back to my usual self. I appreciate your patience and understanding especially with me sparking late and sometimes not at all. You are all so appreciated! Thanks for your valued friendship. emoticon emoticon

Let's have a great Thursday sparking on together...cheering you on as always... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Judith--I can't believe that cherry blossoms are open anywhere right now.
All I can see are giant snow banks every where I look. I know spring has got to come
sometime, but this morning it was 15 degree below zero F when I got up. Fortunately, my vehicle did start since I had an early appointment. I am so sick of winter and they are talking possible snow tonight with snow showers tomorrow. I am usually a very up beat person but I am starting to get depressed.

Prayers for those who need them, and hugs for everyone

Eileen

Eileen, thanks for giving me the heads up with your shovelling, I feel much better about it, I was concerned as I had visions of you doing all that work so knowing someone is ploughing out the most of the driveway and your friend's son who can help with the roof if needed, I agree, it is a win/win situation for you both.

Yes, in some areas of the Greater Vancouver area there are Cherry Blossoms in full bloom,it will be nice when your snow is gone and you can enjoy your spring flowers also..

For all the team, as always I cheer you on your journey, keep pushing and keep up the great work, I am so proud of you all in the work you are doing in this months challenge, good job!

emoticon Together as we emoticon ...

Judith--as for help with the shoveling, I do have someone plowing out my driveway, so all I have to do are the paths and the cleaning up around where my vehicle is parked when the driveway is plowed. I have always done it so it is nothing new for me. I do have a young man who is going to trade me his time doing the roof areas (if necessary) and other odd jobs around here that need to be done for a piece of my husband's equipment that he wants. It is a big piece of equipment so I will get a lot of help from him. He is very conscientious--his mother is a friend of mine-- and he is skilled in a lot or areas where I will need help. It is a win/win situation for both of us.

The fact that your crocus are up gives me hope, although my tulips and daffodils are buried under about four feet of snow right now. Maybe when it starts disappearing it will go fast.

Prayers for those who need them and hugs for everyone..
Eileen

Eileen, happy you are feeling better, please be careful with all that snow shovelling, is there a young man or gal who could help you with that? You are sure getting the cold weather, I almost hate to say we have sunshine and my crocus are up in full bloom, (sorry) Take care and have an awesome week ahead... emoticon

Hope you all had an awesome day team and enjoyed your family time.

Cheering you on for a fantastic week ahead, letís keep pushing on together and be the best we can be for the Lord! emoticon emoticon

Am more rested than I was yesterday, but after some snow shoveling the energy is going to be in short supply at the end of the day. I had to shovel out the oil fill pipe in order to call for a fuel delivery. I do heat primarily with wood, but have an oil furnace for back-up and turn it up every morning just until I get the wood stove and furnace going. Got the fill pipe shoveled out and now need to give my dog a much needed bath. It is going to be somewhat warmer today than it has been so she should be alright even if she has to go out before she is completely dry.

Hopefully everyone is having a great weekend.

Prayers for those who need them and hugs for everyone.

Evening emoticon Team

As you can usually figure it out Tuesday's is my Ministry Teaching day and am gone the better part of my day and then Saturday is usually reserved to having my grandkids here sometimes over night, Sunday is always a ministry day as me being one of our Leaders I am gone until late afternoon, tomorrow is our Annual AGM and Church Board Elections so will be gone until supper hour...

In spite of that I am here and make up for those absence with posting daily and cheering you all on your journey, so let's keep sparking and shining for Jesus and have a fantastic weekend ahead... emoticon emoticon

For some reason I feel very tired today, so have decided I need to take it easy and not do more than I have to do. It has been a very busy week so that plus a night when I didn't seem able to get enough sleep (my dog wanted to get me up way too early) is taking its toll. Hope everyone is having a good weekend and is able to stay warm even if it is very cold in your area.

Prayers for those who need them and hugs for everyone.

Had a friend/student here yesterday for a basket class and really enjoyed the company. He joined me for a lunch of homemade soup and we had a great time talking and catching up. She also got a great start on a complicated basket as I worked on finishing one that has been waiting for some complicated embellishments.

Hope everyone is having a good day. Prayers for those who need the support and hugs to all of you.

Today was another lovely day, our weather was sunny and cloudy but mostly sun and the air was a little cooler today but still lovely for this time of the year.

Had a nice visit with a friend who was in town, we got together over lunch and got caught up with each others news, spent some time working on my knitting, making a scarf for me and finished a dish cloth and started another....

Cheering you all on for a great day, keep pushing and keep up the great work... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today is going to be a "rest" day for me. I find that all the recent activity has made me somewhat lame. I had a chiropractor's appointment this morning so I think it would be good for me just to let myself have an easy day. I may do a short walking video later just to keep myself moving. I have brought in the firewood, and it is too cold to do anything else outside.

Hugs and prayers for all the team. Hope you are having a healthy day!

This will be very short as I am almost exhausted. Since my bathroom looked so nice, I decided that I was going to rip up my living room rug since it was worn out in many places not to mention dirty. I had been threatening to do this for a long time, but always got talked out of it. Well now there is no one here but me. It is a big living room with quite a bit of furniture, but I did get the rug ripped up and man-handled it out onto the front porch. Now I have got to at least vacuum the room. There is still a lot to do to completely get rid of the rug backing, etc., but I can do that a little at a time as the energy level returns.

Hope everyone is having a good day. Hugs and prayers are sent your way.

After three days of sanding and painting, I was able to put up my new shower curtain in the downstairs bathroom and actually use the shower for the first time in two years. I have been showering in a standing shower upstairs which I was lucky to have, BUT the upstairs is minimally heated in the winter. Even with a small electric heater turned on showering upstairs in as cold a winter as this has been is a chilling experience. I still have to find wallpaper for the walls and paint the ceiling, but I can now start putting things back in the linen/medicine closet and using my bathroom as I want. It will look so nice when it is finished.

Hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day.

You both have the painting energizer bunnies working on your side...Good Job gals

Hope your husband enjoys his camping with your son, sounds like you have your weekend planned out for you...Sounds like fun you are having a painting party with friend's a great way to get your projects completed...Yes, it is too bad you live so far away from Eileen as I'm sure she's love the extra hand to help paint and finish up her renovations.

Eileen; I join you and cheer along with you that the workmen are finished their part of the work, this is great you can now finish up with your part. Your bathrooms are going to be so nice when they are all done, can hardly wait to hopefully see some pictures posted on your page. Wow, you are getting a lot of snow, but I'm with you when things are going so well with your renos it doesn't seem to matter what is going on outside...

Hope you all have a great evening and Friday and Weekend ahead, as always I am standing with you Team cheering you all on, we CAN together 1 step and 1 day at a time, we can meet those goals when we stay focused and keep our eyes on the finishing line...

Too bad you live so far away. I am painting my kitchen on the 20-22nd. My husband is going boyscout camping with my son and I am tired of the buckets of paint sitting in the garage for over 4 months now. So I am having a painting party and one of my friends is coming over to help me. My kithen remodel stalled out in October and I still have back splash tile to put up, cabinets and floor tile to seal, along with painting.

This is one of those days that I want to cheer from the rooftops because the workmen are done in both of my bathrooms, and I can start the painting, etc. to finish them. I will be spending most of the day sanding the old surfaces and then repainting so that if will finally be ready for me to put everything back in my linen closet and putting up the shower curtain in the downstairs bath. On the other hand, it is snowing again which does not make me happy. Oh well, if I am working on my bathroom who cares what the weather is doing.

Hope everyone is having a good day. Hugs and prayers to you all.
Eileen

My driveway has been cleared of snow once again, now if it would only stop snowing. In truth we are only having snow showers and it is not mounting up, but I am so over the constant storms which seem to come one right after another. I am thankful that we are not getting the amounts of now that they are getting in the southern part of the state, but.........
Hope everyone is having a good days.

Hugs and prayers for all of you.

Thanks Eileen, it is quite the job, and I totally understand about an older home with existing plumbing and the snow factors, a few years back I lived back where you are and the snow did play a huge factor whenever you planned anything, the last winter before I moved from there I had to shovel my way out of my place so we could all go to work and school and do the same thing when coming home. My husband and I renovated an older home and we came into many roadblocks, electrical and plumbing, heating etc, it sure takes it toll dealing with all those factors. Nice the bathrooms are getting done and it will be so nice when it is all completed. Here's hoping the weather holds out so your BIL can get out on Tuesday and get some work done for you....

We had a most awesome Sunday, here in BC it is Family Day, at church we had a beautiful service and then the Children's ministry put on a scrumptious lunch, we had pizza from Pizza Hut, this gal did good, only ate 1 piece, then after lunch the whole church went to the 5 Pin Bowling Alley, it was both a Blessed Day and a Fun Day with my Church Family...

Hope you all had a great Sunday,

Cheering you on for a fantastic week ahead, let's press forward and meet our goals... emoticon emoticon

Thank you Judith for inquiring as to the bathroom renovations. I now have a vanity in the upstairs bath and other than painting, flooring and the lighting fixtures it is complete. I have the light fixtures which will be installed on the next trip. The unfortunate thing is that my BIL and his friend who are doing the work live some distance away, and can only make the trip when the weather co-operates. With all the snow recently they have to clear their on driveways, etc. and if it takes too long on the day it clears they don't make the trip since they would not be able to accomplish much in the short time they would have here. That said, they should be able to finish the tub wall/plumbing installation in the downstairs bath and finish up on the next trip--probably on Tuesday depending on when the snow stops In their area. The fact that this is an old house has cause some additional work in that new plumbing does not easily connect to what is in existence. It will be so nice when it is all done!

My prayers and hugs go out to all of you and hope you are having a good Sunday.
Eileen

Thank you Judith for your kind words regarding all that is going on in my life. My fur babies are feeling much better, and I have noticed a lot less scratching. Think the flea medicine is working and their ear medication hopefully is taking care of the infection. Yes, Livelygirl I do indeed believe in prayer, and I will be sending my prayers out to help your mother through her trials. As for everyone else, hope you are all having a great weekend.

Hugs and prayers for all of you!
Eileen

Nice to hear from you. Your cheerful and so is our leader. emoticon

If anyone on this group believes in prayer...

My mom reinjured her back. Also they gave her a notice to move from her duplex . We are in a bind trying to find affordable care and in the process of getting medical or Medicaid.

She is having a tough time and her attitude is challenging , she is down and in pain.

Thanks Eileen, yes things are improving step by step, thanks for the update on your pets, happy they are responding well to the treatment, so sorry they have fleas, wow, what a shock to find out about the wholesale place, that is really too bad the product you thought would help your dear fur babies you end up by finding out it was counterfeit, that's terrible, you wonder what makes these people do things like that, I feel so sorry for your "babies" as they are the ones who are suffering now. Here's hoping they soon get better from the infections and the fleas

On a better note happy the bathroom reno's are coming along. Oh my that is a lot of work with you having to stack all that firewood, happy they are installing another shut off valve so you won't have to be moving firewood again should the water need to be shut down again. You sure have had the quite the days with everything happening. Here's hoping the remainder of your weekend is better from here on...You sure have got that right when you said I guess my life isn't getting bored anytime soon...Dear me... emoticon

As you can see I'm back after a computer crash yesterday, didn't get any sparking done at all, sorry team... But am happy I sparked today... emoticon

Cheering you all on for a Blessed and Fantastic weekend ahead, we can in God's Strength.

Yesterday met fitness...if fact, went overboard. Balance?
Nutrition...got the calories, not the veggies/fruits...
Today's a new day :)

Judith glad to hear that your health is improving, I pray that it continues to do so. I realized just how blessed I am health wise when I read about others who are overcoming major health problems and still continue to live there lives as they wish.

Both of my pets are responding to treatment but I also found they have fleas. I was using what I thought was the same brand of flea protection as the vet supplies, only I had picked it up at a wholesale club. I found out yesterday that none of the wholesale clubs or "big box stores" are authorized to sell this particular product, and what I had obtained was counterfeit and probably did not contain any of the proper ingredients for flea protection. I have learned my lesson there. I will only buy from the vet in the future--and actually her prices are cheaper anyway.

On another note, my bathroom renovations are progressing, BUT in order to keep them moving forward, I need to restack sections of three tier of firewood. It is piled in front of the main water shut off for the house, and the whole house water has to be shut of to finish the plumbing in one bathroom. While it is shut down, they will install another shut off valve so this won't happen again. Just when I thought I was done stacking firewood. Oh well, it is good exercise. I will say that the men doing the work offered to wait until I had burned to wood and come back in the spring to do that phase of the work, but I said absolutely not. I would restack the wood today, so they have access to the shut off when they come back tomorrow.

Guess my life isn't going to get boring any time soon. Hugs and prayers go out to all of you with the hope that you all are having a healthy, good day.

Eileen; so sorry about your "kitty" and "Puppy" both having ear infections, happy you were able to get them in to the Vet, here's hoping they can get some ear drops/ointment so they can be on the road to recovery. Happy your day was good weather wise, you are doing great on your progress with your bathroom renovations...Keep up the great work my friend, cheering you on as always...

As for me, my day was some better, testerday I was off teaching as I was really struggling with my flare, today a little better, actually comparing yesterday to today it was remarkably better...

Weather wise: Today mostly cloudy with intermittent rain showers, better day of what's to come, rest of week the forecast is for rain showers right thru to Sunday... emoticon

As always cheering you on for a fantastic Thursday ahead... emoticon emoticon

Another nice day here after a cold start, and progress is being made on my bathroom renovations. I do have to take my pets (dog and cat) to the vet this afternoon, but I was able to get an appointment for this afternoon after calling this morning. I spoke to the vet herself and she figured that since they both have ear infections she needed to see them today.

Hope everyone's day is as successful as mine. Hugs and prayers.
Eileen

Have had a fairly busy day today. Had two appointments this morning (and was proud of myself for keeping them even though the roads were still in poor shape when I had to go out.) I do not like to drive on slippery roads, but I didn't have a problem. I might have frustrated other drivers since I won't drive faster than I feel safe. I did a fair amount of shoveling before my appointments, and then more shoveling after to get my firewood in. On top of that I had a few phone calls, and am in the process of doing two loads of laundry. Now all I need to do is get in at least 15 minutes of an exercise video, and I will feel good about my day.

My prayers go out to all of you along with hugs for a good day.

Another snowy day here. I finally made myself shovel off my back deck which was definitely overdue. It is the fire escape from my bedroom which is on the second floor and I wasn't even able to get the door open. I had to remove the upper panel from the storm door, put the shovel out through the opening, and push/shovel snow away from the door until I could get it open and go out to continue shoveling. I try to be very careful with my wood fires, etc. but even so, I need to have that escape route open if I need it. I have also done a two mile walking video so I feel well exercised.

I am hoping that this snowstorm is the last one for awhile since I am running out of room to shovel snow from my paths and around the outside wood pile. The plowman who does my driveway still has room to push snow, but I really don't want to walk every shovelful across the driveway to dump it.

Hope someone is having a snow-free/ storm-free day somewhere. Hugs and prayers are with you all.
