Hello.

smiley2

Warmer today, but no snow.  They shoveled on Sunday and then it snowed another inch or so, which they didn't shovel.  Most of it has melted, and I think more will today, but about half of the driveway is covered with snow and the area in front of the mail box isn't clear.  Don't laugh, but we're going to back  out of the drive way and pull up in front of the mailbox to get Saturday and Monday's mail.  Maybe today's too.
Then tomorrow ~~ more snow!
smiley19

OOPS!  We just lost power!  I'd better save this!  

Well, that was fun ~ not.  It must have been one of those planned outages because when I called within 5 minutes of the power going out, they already could tell there was an outage in our area and it would be restored within the hour.  And it was.  And I'm back.   Thank goodness I saved it into my mail before all was lost!

Have a great day and stay warm!

HERE I AM TO SAVE THE DAY...IF I CAN KEEP MY EYES OPEN LONG ENOUGH.  I FEEL EXHAUSTED.  THE LADIES JUST LEFT AROUND 10:30 PM AND THEY HAD BEEN HERE SINCE 5.  WE ORDERED OUT FROM PIZZA RANCH.  CAROLE, GLORIA AND I ALL GOT PERSONAL PIZZA'S AND MOM GOT CHICKEN.  IT WAS ALL GOOD AND THE LADIES LIKE DELIVERY WHEN IT IS SO COLD LIKE THIS AND THEY DO NOT HAVE TO RUN FOR THE FOOD.  I DO NOT BLAME THEM.  
WOW, YOU REALLY GOT HIT WITH THE SNOW THIS TIME.  WE JUST KEEP GETTING DUSTINGS.  I THINK IT IS TOO COLD TO SNOW, LOL.  IT WAS WARMER TODAY AND IT IS STILL ABOVE 0 EVEN NOW, SO THAT IS A PLUS.  STILL, WITH THE WINDCHILL, IT IS PRETTY DARN COLD.  I WILL HAVE SOME TV TIME TO MYSELF THIS WEEK AS MOM HAS ARC BINGO WED NIGHT AND FONDY IDOL FRIDAY NIGHT.  I DO HAVE TO WATCH IDOL WED AND GLEE ON FRI, BUT I WILL FIT SOMETHING NEW IN THERE SOMEWHERE.  MY INR WAS GOOD.  IT WAS LIKE 2.75 OR SOMETHING AROUND THAT.  BACK IN 3 WEEKS AND I NEED TO BE SEEN IN THE CLINIC.  APPTS COMING UP...MAR 4 EYE DOCTOR AND LABS, MAR 9 DENISE FOR DIABETES, MAR 13 INR.  THAT IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME.  
ACCORDING TO THE SCALE, I GAINED 3 LBS THIS LAST WEEK.  I AM SO UPSET OVER THIS.  I CANNOT BELIEVE IT.  IT SUCKS.  I HAVE WASTED A WHOLE WEEK.  DAMN.  
I AM SO TIRED AND AM GOING TO BED.

Good Morning.

We're  heading back to colder temps and snow this afternoon.  Expecting another 4 to 9 inches of snow through tomorrow.   Right now the walk and drive are clear, though there is a mini-mountain of snow at the end of the driveway. Mike has a haircut scheduled for this afternoon, but he's wondering about cancelling it since we might get freezing rain ahead of the snow.  

We started re-watching the last season of "House of Cards" on Netflix before it returns with the next season on Friday.  It really is so well done, but I can't help thinking of everything I see on the news as I watch all the manipulations and back room deals among the politicians.  At least I don't think any of them are murdering anyone. Hopefully. Ha!  The show really holds you.  I hope we can finish re-watching Season 2 before we start watching Season 3.

On a less serious note, we watched NCIS (not as good as usual last night) and Rizzoli and Isles also.  I did get some laundry and a few other things done, but this morning when I looked at the kitchen floor I realized my work is not done.  I can't even imagine how it got so "spotted".

Oooh, look at you thinking Spring!  Beautiful post ~ and lovely tag.  Thank you!

It sounds like a really fun evening with your friends.  I think you needed that. 

Congrats on the good INR, and my sympathies on all the Dr appts.  I hate that, but if we want to keep on goin' I guess we have to keep on goin' to see them.  

You definitely have my sympathy about your weight gain, although of course we know fluctuation just happens.  You will lose it quickly.  You've done so well.   Me?  Not so much.  I think I'm broken.  After so many years of low carb dieting, I think my body is saying "Oh, no.  Not again. Just give up."   Sorry, body, I'm not giving up for at least 25 more lbs.  I need to lose at least 45, but I'm something of a realist.   Given that after almost 2 months I've only lost 10 and can't seem to budge beyond that, I appear to be living in dream land, but I'm not giving up.   Yet.  lol

Hope you slept well and have a great day.

 Well, I did not sleep well last night. Seemed my nose cushion just was not sitting on my face right and it kept thinking that it was leaking. My old cushion fit better but it was getting loose and not staying within the mask. Had to search for it a few times on the floor.

I fooled around with Roku and Amazon Prime and started adding things to my watch list. Some movies come with Prime and some are rentals and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. I saw Oliver and I love that musical.  It has even been on TV, yet it was not free but a rental.  That made me mad, lol. It is so time consuming going through the lists, clicking to open see what it is about, see if it is free and if so add to watch list and then back to the start. Wish there was a easier and quicker way. Will have to see if I can find a listing on Amazon.  

Jordan has to do some community service as part of his probation, so last month he went and helped at ARC Bingo.  The SRC representative wrote a not for the PO about time spent. She refused to accept it and banned him from going any more. She said that they are the kind of people hecould take advantage of. She is just the biggest creep.  She knows damn well that Jordan was involved in consensual sex with a girlfriend yet she acts like he is the biggest pervert out there.  What 20 year old wants to take advantage of middle age to elderly mentally handicapped women?  Not Jordan. Mom said it sucks as Jordan was a big help.  I would like to give that woman a piece of my mind....but I cannot do without any as I am getting more and more forgetful and if I give her a piece I will be in deep doo doo, lol.

Damn I am tired. Time to call it a night.  Chat with you tomorrow.

Hugs,

Good Morning.
The snow started a bit earlier than we had expected yesterday, so Mike cancelled his haircut.  They say we got another 5.5 inches ~ it sure seems like more than that to me.  The deck was almost completely melted before the snow started.  Now, not so much.  Ho! Ho! Ho!





It snowed hard all day.   We finished watching Season 2 of House of Cards. ;-)   
Now this morning, they have already shoveled, but more snow is predicted so I hope they wait until it is finished before coming back.  When we are left with an inch and a half, we really can't do much about it except wait for it to melt.  

The Trash and Recycle trucks have already been here and the lids are off of the cans and it's snowing lightly so they may be filling with snow before we can get them in, and Mike and I are afraid to walk down the still slightly snow covered walk and get them.  I know that sounds ridiculous to you normal folks, but for those of us who are balance-challenged, it's an issue.  





I wish I could walk further out to get a better picture to show how deep it is.   This does show what the walk and drive look like AFTER they shovel.  It melts quickly IF and WHEN the sun gets to it because we are so close to the sun. 

 I forgot to tell you all that we got our Federal Tax Refund deposited in our bank account several days ago!  We had already paid the $188 we owed for our 2014 State Taxes, so all of our Taxing Stuff is over for another year.

smiley19
I have no excuse, but I didn't sleep worth a darn last night either!  I woke at 3AM and was awake until a quarter to 5.  Then I did fall asleep and slept until 6:15.  Hate that!   Can you get a different nose cushion?  

Mike does all of our playing on Roku and Amazon Prime, and I'm glad he does.  I do know what you mean about finding something good to watch, and how the heck do you know it will be good to watch.   We've had several recommended to us, and Mike has found others and I just watch.  

We both love Oliver! the musical, too and watch it every Christmas.  We have our own DVD, but sometimes find it out there free.   I find it so annoying when some really old movie that you have seen a million times for free on network is being rented when you want to watch ~ usually Christmasy things during the Christmas Season, or Halloweeny Things during the Halloween Season.  Then in July, it's back to free.  While I do like to watch seasonal movies, I can promise 'them' that I will NEVER pay for a movie that so clearly should be free!  
I hope you can find some really good, fun things to watch while your mom is away.  

Absolutely infuriating that Jordan's probation officer (or whatever she is) is so out to get him and totally non-helpful.  Seriously, if he didn't have a supportive family,  he could just throw in the sponge ~ and maybe that's what that Hag is hoping for.  Maybe whoever is the head of ARC could write a letter to her, asking it to be appended to his record.  Perhaps cc'ing it to her boss, so the Hag won't just throw it away.   What does she mean 'they are the kind of people he could take advantage of'?   I don't even understand that.  She thinks he's going to rape them all?  Good Lord, help us!   I know he was rude to her early on, but she needs to get over it.  If he's trying, she is supposed to be helping him "rehabilitate".  The Hag!   (ooooh, tell us what you REALLY think, Dorothy.  LOL)

Thank you for the lovely tag!   Have a good nap and a great day!

*********************
PAY IT FORWARD Time!   Someone, I haven't a clue who, just brought both of our trash/recycle cans up to the garage door for us!   God bless them very much!   Barbara is out of town and I looked as soon as I heard the cans being dragged but didn't see anyone on the sidewalk in front of us, and none of the neighbors across and down the street have taken their own cans in yet.  I must find out who the Good Samaritan is.  This isn't the first time they have done it.

We're wracking our brains to find something to watch tonight.  Tomorrow "House of Cards" starts and on Saturday the next episode of Murdoch Mysteries, but tonight ~ nuthin.

I just stopped in again to tell you that I found out who our other Neighborhood Angel is ~~ our new next door neighbor, Jake.  Bless his heart.  I told him Mike and I are good to go most of the time, but when it's slick outside it's hard for us.  He said "Anytime".  I know he's done it before.  So now we have Barbara on one side and Jake on the other taking care of us.  We are so lucky!

I got a picture of our across the street neighbors houses that I think shows the snow piles better.  I'd have to go out into the street to get a picture of ours, and you know THAT isn't going to happen.

Boy, you guys are really getting dumped on. So glad it is not us. Still, I could do with some warmer weather. But we cannot have everything I guess. So will deal with the cold. My room is so cold that I wear slipper boots and a sweater to sleep and 2 blankets. The thing is as I sleep, I slide farther down in the chair because the foot rest does not come up high. So when I wake up my feet are totally hanging off the end and are freezing. I feel like I am Half Pint on Little House and the floor is so cold to step on, lol.

Nothing much going on here. Mom is going out to eat and then to a show with my sister Joanne tomorrow night so I will be on my own. Will probably be a pizza kind of night.  But you never know. I have been thinking about the meatloaf mom made when we were young and she added bread crumbs or croutons to the loaf to make it go farther. I loved it. I could try and make one, but I know it would not be as good as hers was. Also am craving some spaghetti and meatballs. Going to have mom get the makings when grocery shopping the week. Another food I love and she does not.

Sorry that you did not sleep well either. Hope you can sleep well tonight. Sleepless nights suck. Especially since mom sleeps in the living room so I cannot get up and go out there and watch TV. Oh la, who cares.

You really are blessed in your neighbors and how wonderful they are. Seems all in all this whole community are pretty great people. This move worked out so well for you.  That last picture certainly does show the snow depth better than the ones of your front from in the house or garage. I so understand being afraid to walk where it is slick or snowy...you never know when there is ice under the snow.

Oh Lordy, I had better start planning the March pages as it is almost hear. February sure went by fast.  Hmmm, what shall I do, lol.
I really have nothing more to say so will say Good Night.
Hugs,

Good Morning.   Another very cold day ~ currently 10 degrees.  Brrrrr.

How come your room is so cold?  You don't still have the AC in the window, do you?  

I think it's a great idea to have some of the things you love to eat that your mom does not while she is gone.   There are so many different meat loaf recipes out there.  Ask her how she remembers making it and I'll bet you can find one that is close.  I just use an old Better Homes recipe but Mike loves it and I like it too.  It uses bead crumbs and doesn't have any catsup IN it, but I make a sauce with catsup, mustard and brown sugar for the topping.  Seems to me like most folks put the catsup inside.  Kind of interesting how many different ways there are to fix one of our most basic dishes.   

A big batch of spaghetti and meatballs sounds wonderful, especially in this cold weather.

I did sleep well last night, thanks!  That makes such a BIG difference, doesn't it? 

Nothing exciting to report from my neck of the woods today.  A bit of laundry and not much else going on. 

Mike did send me an advertisement for a bottle of 50 year old Glenlivit Scotch this morning, suggesting we might want to get that for each other for our Anniversary.   You remember we have been giving each other a bottle of 25 year old Glenlivit for the past couple of years.  50 year old would have to be awesome, but more expensive I was sure.   So I opened the ad, and it was indeed a bit more expensive ~~$25,000.00!  ROTFLOL!   Mike is so "cute" ~~ if you don't believe me, ask HIM!  

Have a great day, and stay warm!

Dorothy


Oops!  I almost forgot to thank you for my lovely new tag!  Thank you!

Yes, sadly, my AC is still in the window. Also Part of my room has no basement under it. Just outdoor storage space so no hear under my flooring and my radiator does not get real hot like the others do. It needs to be bled. So when we have below zero temps and even lower windchill..esp if it is out of the east as then it blows right in the window. I see the curtain moving and feel that cold air moving in. My pulmonologist actually told me to keep my bedroom cooler as I will breath better.  I told him, believe me, it is cold in my room and he said good.  I just sleep with my slipper boots on my feet and a sweated on over my lounger.  I'm good.

OMG, $25,000 for a bottle of scotch.  Why?  I thought it was outrageous to pay $10 for a can on Chai Tea, lol.
I would never spend even $10 on a bottle of scotch.  I do not like it so why would I?  I am in shock. Do not tell me what you pay for the 25 year old one you get...I do not think my senses could take it, lol.

Nothing much else going on here.  We will be going to Joanne's on Sunday to celebrate Jason's 16th birthday.  Oops, wait, that is next Sunday, not this one.

I did not work on the pages today so we know what I will be doing tomorrow.  I had 4 hours sleep last night.  I am going to be early to bed soon.  Can hardly keep my eyes open.

These tags were a cluster frame.
Love and Hugs,

Hello.  It's chilly out today (12 degrees). What a surprise.  Maybe more snow on the way this afternoon, and tomorrow, and .... smiley93

House of Cards started yesterday and we planned to watch two episodes, but ended up watching four!  No control at all!   We had cognac and coffee in the library before dinner.  It was nice.

Today there is a Good Witch Movie Marathon on Hallmark, and it will be followed tonight by the two hour premier of the new Good Witch TV series.   I hope it's good.  We have all of the movies DVR'd, but I've been enjoying re-watching them this morning.

smiley12

I can understand that having your room cooler is good for your breathing, but freaking COLD doesn't sound so good.   I guess on a positive note, you won't have to worry about getting your AC IN next Summer.  (chuckle)

I literally hooted when I opened the email and saw the price of that Scotch.  I thought it might be maybe a couple of hundred dollars being that old and in a special hand blown glass bottle and all, (and before you ask, No.  lol)   Then when I saw the actual price ~~~ LOL!   I thought the 25 year old we buy for each other for our Anniversary was pricey, but now seeing this, it's downright cheap.  LOL. 

Please don't worry or stress about the new March pages.  You know it's just the two of us, and while I always love to see what you do, I can wait!  Do it when it's fun to do and don't let it stress you!  

Very pretty new tag!  Thank you!

I am busy working on getting everything up and running

but wanted to write back so you know I read your note.

I slept just wonderful last night.  Well over 7 hours and

I have not had that much sleep in one night in a long time.

Who pays that kind of money for a bottle of booze.

For someone like me, who has never made a purchase

higher than about $500 for anything, it is unimaginable.

Yep, we watched the Good Witch movies too.

I will not say too much about the series movies, other

than there are some changes, that from the previews

I had already expected.  Boy did they jump ahead 

though...their little girl is in high school, yet nobody 

else had aged much, lol.  Those that were there.

I hope there is a little more "magic" in the series.

That, I think, is the big draw for this show.  And

though it was there, I would like them to focus a

little more on it.  As far as the AC, yep, I have a head

start on summer.  Good way to look at it, lol.

Ok, back to the grindstone.

Hugs, Lou Ann
