Good Morning and

Welcome to December

  

We don't have snow, but Man is it cold!  We're in the 20s and looking at a high of 42.  Brrrr.

I hope yesterday didn't do you in.  I know you had a LOT on your plate!

 I think I got a good haircut, much shorter than the last time but the shape looks really good ~ at least until I try to do it myself.  Mike got a haircut in the afternoon, too, and in between we picked up what was supposed to be just a few groceries.  Uh-huh. $140!  

Today I need to fold laundry and finish up with everything I was doing in the craft room so I can restore it to just "The Morning Room", because Shauna is coming tomorrow and I want her to clean it well so we can put the tree up in there.  

These are the gift tags I made on Tuesday I thought I would show you. 

Each tag is a 2 x 2.5 piece of red card stock, punched on one end with a little "scallop" and a hole for the cord to go through.  Then I cut a piece of Designer Christmas card stock to fit the lower half on one side, and a piece of white card stock on the other side.   I wrote "To and From" on the White side.  I stamped and colored the little Santas and Gingerbread men and then punched them out and affixed them to the Designer Paper side with Dimentionals to make them stand out a bit.

I know.  More than you ever wanted to know.  LOL

  


Have a great day!

QUICK CATCH-UP

EYE DOCTOR CHECKED THE EYE FOR ME AND FOUND NOTHING WRONG.

NO SCRATCH OR ANYTHING IN THE EYE. WHATEVER HAD CAUSED IT

WAS GONE AND EYE LOOKED FINE.  LITTLE IRRITATION OF THE SKIN

AT THE CORNER.  HE SAID I DID EVERYTHING RIGHT.

AS FOR THE GOOD EYE, PRESSURE LAST TIME WAS 26 AND THIS TIME 

23.  SO CONTINUE THE DROPS NIGHTLY AND RECHECK IN 6 MONTHS.

AS YOU KNOW, NOT SO GOOD WITH THE INR,  4.9. HOLD WARFARIN 1

NIGHT, USE HALF TAB 2 X AND FULL REST AND RECHECK MON. HAD A

BIG HELPING OF SPINACH TONIGHT.

NEW ISSUE...INFECTED BAD TOOTH.  WROTE MY DOCTOR FOR AN ANTI-

BIOTIC AND SOME TYLENOL WITH CODIENE AS IT IS VERY PAINFUL

AND EXTRA STRENGTH TYLENOL DOES NOT CUT IT.

SO GOOD NIGHT MY FRIEND, TOMORROW WILL HOPEFULLY BE A BETTER 

DAY.

HUGS, LOU ANN

Good Morning!

Another really cold day today here.  In the 20s now but we will warm to about 4 degrees above FREEZING.  

Shauna comes this morning, so I will make this brief.  I got my Portable Craft Room put away (with only a few tears), so Shauna can clean it and make it ready to receive the Christmas tree.   I'm not sure when we will put it up, but soon.  

I'm so glad your eyes are both better, but now a bad tooth?  Bummer!   Are you going to be able to get in to see a dentist before the weekend?   I'd hate to have you suffer all weekend long!

I'm sure your new routine will get your INR numbers down, but what made it pop up so much so fast?  As you know, I had a similar situation, but it didn't pop up as fast, more sort of creeped up.  Now I'm mid range, but with the new dosage I won't be surprisd to see it go too low before long.  sigh.

I hope you can get on top of the tooth situation quickly!   Try to have a good day ~ and night!

I SPENT THE MORNING PAYING THE DEC. BILLS.  THIS IS THE EARLIEST I HAVE EVER DONE THEM. BUT SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS WERE ALREADY IN OUT ACCOUNTS.
THEN I SPENT THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING DOING THE GROUP PAGE. TOMORROW I WILL GET THE SKIN DONE.



DENISE PLACED AN ORDER FOR AN ANTIBIOTIC FOR ME BUT SAID TO JUST TAKE TYLENOL FOR IT.  I CANNOT GO TO THE DENTIST BECAUSE THEY MAKE YOU PAY PER VISIT AND NOT MAKE PAYMENTS.  I CAN'T DO THAT, ESPECIALLY WITH THE AMOUNT THEY CHARGE. AND, LUCKILY, I AM, HAVING ONLY MINOR PAIN FROM THE TOOTH THAT HAS AN ASCESS. SO THE WORSE OF THAT IS OVER.


MY MOM WAS GETTING ALL CRANKY ON ME TODAY BECAUSE I WAS NOT CLEANING MY ROOM. ONCE I GET THE SKIN DONE I WILL WORK ON IT. ALONG WITH OTHER THINGS.



I AM OFF TO LALA LAND.  CHAT WITH YOU TOMORROW.  LOVE AND HUGS,

Good Morning!

I overslept!   I was awake a lot during the night, but apparently when I fell asleep in the early morning, I slept HARD.  I didn't wake up until 8!

Last night we went to the Golden Europe (Czech Restaurant) for dinner and brought tonight's dinner home, too.  We can never finish our meals there.

Really cold again today ~ yesterday it SNOWED!  That hadn't been predicted and while it snowed for quite a while nothing stuck.  Still . . . 

Yay ~ you got the new December thread done and it's great!   Also getting the bills done ~ you're on a roll!  

I love my new tag, too!  

I'm sorry you can't go to the dentist and have your tooth taken care of, but at least there isn't too much pain now, and you do have an antibiotic so you won't get into trouble from the infection.

I have to admit that I haven't even transferred the funds in our bank accounts yet.  I don't remember ever being this late.

I did my INR yesterday and it was a lovely 2.6.  I was a bit concerned that it might drop too low with the new lower dosage, but it was purrrfect again.  yay.  

Sue and John are coming over this afternoon to pick up our old tree that we are giving them ~~ I sure hope the lights still work!  Then they said they would carry our current tree inside for us, and we may let them.  We are both so worthless.  Ha.  

Have a great day!

Good Frosty Morning.

It's 22 degrees right now (brrrr), but heading for a "toasty" 50 by 2PM.  We didn't get a whole lot done yesterday, so today we need to make up for lost time.   When John and Sue came for the tree we gave them, John brought our tree in from the garage to the Morning room for us, so I think Mike is going to have no choice but to put it up.  Whether or not we will start actually decorating it remains to be seen.  

So much to do, and "tick tock"!

Mary Ann sent us our wreath!  I really didn't expect her to make one for us this year since she is recovering from surgery.  She said Benji wouldn't let her make them, but she did decorate them, and that's what matters most anyway, right?



I need coffee!   Have a great day!

Hello. How are you today?

I'm watching the news of the Oakland fire. Horrendous.   Just between this and the fires in Tennessee, so much tragedy, and of course there is so much more.   Hard to process, when my own little world is so safe and pleasant, and hard to realize how quickly that could change.

Yesterday we got the tree up and even the star and a few on toward the top ~ my "brilliant" idea to put them on before we lifted the tree to the table so we wouldn't have to stand on a ladder to add them.  I am positively terrified of ladders these days, and when I look at Mike on one, that's even scarier to me (though not to him).

I think we should be able to finish decorating the tree today, but you know how slow we are.   I need to get Vince's gifts wrapped and in the mail soon because his birthday is on the 13th.  We'll be mailing both his birthday and Christmas gifts at the same time.  I'll probably try to get Lucy and Jack's Christmas gifts wrapped to mail at the same time so our Mail Lady only has to make one stop.   Oh, how I love being able to have her pick our packages up rather than our having to go to the Post Office and stand in line.   Lots of memories of that!


Well, I'd better get to it, or we won't get anything done.

Have a fantabulous day!

Good morning.  

Yes, we Decked the Halls yesterday ~ or at least we trimmed the tree!   It took us all day because we had to take breaks ~ isn't that awful ~ but we got it done and we are so glad we did.  I still need to put a few things up in the rest of the house, but I can take my time. 

Now I need to work on getting the kids gifts wrapped and mailed, and then started on the Christmas cards.  

It's COLD.  We're currently at 13 degrees, heading for a high of 32 (FREEZING!) and snow to start n the late afternoon.  It will be good to have a Hot Dish for the next few days!  We didn't go for any groceries yesterday, but it's only a "hot dish", and I should be able to throw something together that we can have for the next few days.  

I'm so sorry about all the trouble you are having with your Laptop.  Believe me, I can relate.  I won't say too much, because over the years, every time I have switched to a new PC, I have lost more and more things that I had had for ages, mostly plugins, and now I don't even try anymore.   I can add a name to a snag, but I don't do much else.    I know you will get on top of this, but I feel your pain!

I was never able to use Incredimail.  It trashed my system way back when, so when I got it off and everything back in working order, I never tried it again.    I do know how lovely and fun the mail is, and I hope you can get all of your mail back.

I have just recently been forced to switch to a new outlook mail program, and I hate it to pieces, but what can you do?   I lost all sorts of things with that as well.

OhMyGosh, what a challenge to change just one appointment when it causes you to change everything else.   If only we didn't have to rely on others life would be so simple.  I'm glad that you can change everything and get to watch Reign!

Are you still loving your new chair?  I hope you can get everything changed out soon so you can sleep in it.

Please, don't worry about the skin here.  Your plate is more than full, and this should just be something fun for you to do, and not an additional stressor.  Please, don't worry and only do it when it will be fun for you!

Unfortunately, you are built a lot like me.  If you start something or commit to something, you MUST finish it!   lol.  I promise, the world won't end if you don't get the new skin here, or even all the tuts done in the other group.    Only thing is, I know that when it's ME who had committed (even just to myself) to do something, but it doesn't matter a bit.   I still HAVE to do it.  Ha!  Why do we do this to ourselves?   

Take time to breathe and enjoy your day.   (I know.  Easier said than done.  lol)

I have so much to do, that I am stressing over everything.
As I said, we have absolutely nothing done and most of it should
be done. I hope I can get some of the boys over here this weekend, but I am not counting on it.  I wish I did not have Fauska's tomorrow, but I am not giving it up.  As they would not wait on me again.
Yay, you got your tree done.  I think we are going to have to go ahead and take our Christmas pic without the tree being up.  Will use the new chair as my Santa throne and see how it goes.  I need to ask Suz to come take pictures for us.  I need pictures of both your trees, the one in the house and the one lit up in your yard.
Found another plugin that won't work.  I picked a tut that I liked for out head logo and count for CDO but I did not have a plugin that was a major part of the outcome.  So had to throw in the towel there.  Instead just created my own header.  It is not the best.   I had a real issue with colors not matching so could not add things I wanted to use.  You just cannot go around changing colors to suit you without permission.
Send me a little of your energy.  I need it.  I fall asleep constantly.
Hugs,

It's December in Cuppa ~ and lovely it is!  

Ah, the late Mrs Butcher arrives, in a flurry of snow flakes.  It has stopped, but there is a lot on the ground and rooftops, and it's c-o-l-d, currently it's 11 degrees and heading for single digits! 

I Love Snow ~ if I don't have to shovel it!!   However, apparently the HOA renegotiated our shoveling contract, and instead of hand shoveling, they are now blowing it.  That should be fine, but it isn't.  Quite a bit of snow left and of course freezing.   We should take the trash to the curb for a pick up tomorrow, and we should pick up the mail, which has been delivered to our mail box, but we are going to do neither.   Not worth risking a fall.

If I gave you any of my energy, I mean ANY, I would have none left.   I do a little bit, then sit down, then a little bit more.  Pathetic!    

I did get the kid's gifts wrapped and Mike got them ready for the Post Office to pick up tomorrow.   I do love being able to do that rather than having to go and stand in line in the Post Office.  Ugh!

I tried to take a picture of our outside tree and the lights all looked white in the picture.  They are multi-colored and not led, which is more energy efficient but has that weird purpleish cast.   Ours are pretty and old fashioned looking, I think, but so far no good picture.    I will get some.   Our inside tree is only 5' and on a 2 - 2.5' table, but it's in our small Morning Room, so while it isn't dramatic, it looks nice.

Good luck getting everything done ~~~ and thank you for taking the time to deck our halls with everything else you have to do.

Good Morning.   Oh MY is it cold!   It is currently 3 degrees, but we are going to warm up, all the way to 22 degrees.  I believe that is 10 degrees BELOW Freezing!

I've been enjoying watching the news this morning.  I've gone from thinking of the Trump candidacy as a very bad joke to actually feeling hopeful for the first time in 8 to 12 years.  Who knew.

I can see why he referred to his opponents in the race as "low energy".  Can you even believe how much he has done since he became President-Elect?   Not only some 80 interviews and more cabinet appointments than any other President Elect in history, but also the Thank You Tour, AND the 3AM Tweets!  Amazing.  lol

Then just as I was really enjoying myself, the news that two teenagers have been arrested for arson in the Tennessee fires.  I hope it was "just" carelessness and not intentional, but the way it was phrased this morning makes me fear it was deliberate.  Sickening.

Today I must work on writing Christmas cards.  Later than I would have liked, but not tooo late, hopefully.

I hope things are going better for you.  

Hugs,

Ho Ho Ho    It's still really cold!    Currently 8 degrees with a bit of snow, but heading for a "toasty" 49.  We'll see.   

It really is funny, when you think about it, that it wasn't very long ago when we were complaining about having Summer weather (80s) in the Fall.  I don't think anyone is complaining now.  I do like to have some snow on the ground ~ but not where I will walk or drive.  Ha.  This bitter cold does concern me.  We've had no problems, thank goodness, but I can't help thinking about the homeless people and even the little animals out there.  There is nothing I can do except donate to the Rescue Mission and the Salvation Army and our Animal Shelters.  ;-(

I haven't heard more about those teen agers who apparently set the fires in Tennessee.  It certainly sounds like they did it deliberately.  14 lives lost and all those homes and the beautiful landscape....   I don't know how they can be forgiven, if they did do it on purpose.   

I hope things are going better for you and you are beginning to get on top of everything.   Have you been able to access the Advent Calendar?  I've been enjoying it ~~ except for the Day 5 activity, smashing ornaments!   Silly, but I do love that game, mindless and simple like me.  However, I spent DAYS trying to get beyond Level 5, and now I'm stuck in Level 7.  Ho! Ho! Ho!

And a frosty good morning to you all.

It's actually a bit warmer today, heading for a high in the 50s.  My weather thingy sent a message that Freezing Rain is supposed to start any minute, but I don't think they have poked their heads out of the window yet this morning.  It looks pretty sunny to me. 

We don't have any plans to go out today, and I hope to finish my cards.  Hope being the operative word.  ;-)


I hope it stays nice and we can put up that lighted garland ~ and that it works as we hope and looks good.  It's 9' long and won't cover the entire porch rail.  We plan to see how it looks and then if we like it order a second one.  Non LED colored lights are harder to come by, so we should try while we still have a chance.  This is something we can do ourselves, while the rest of the things we hire are not.

I wondered why you were not here ~ was it PC problems or were you not well or just having too much fun.  I hoped for the latter, but . . .   I'm really sorry you missed going to Fauska's.

You are going to have to have something done with that tooth.  You may be able to still the pain, but the problem is not going away on it's own, and the infection could cause you some serious health problems left untreated. 

Do you have any idea what the cost would be?  I'm not sure how much I could help, but I'd like to help as much as I can.  Would your regular insurance pay for any of it because it does effect more than just your dental health?  No, prob'ly not.  Could you charge it?   I know you aren't in a position to take on a lot of debt right now, but this really needs to be fixed.   Give me an idea of what you need, and let me see what I can do to help, at least some.  Just between you and me, of course.

Love and hugs,
