OH YES, WE GOT SNOW AND ARE STILL GETTING IT.  NOT AN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT.  IT IS MAKING EVERYTHING PRETTY
AGAIN :)  AT LEAST  IT IS STILL NOT BELOW ZERO.
HOW QUICKLY IT IS BACK TO JUST YOU AND I , LOL.  BUT LEAST
WE KNOW THEY ARE OUT THERE AND WE MAY SEE THEM NOW
AND THEN, LOL.
I REALLY CANNOT THINK OF ANYTHING MUCH TO SAY :(
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?  I JUST FINISHED ANOTHER BOOK.  I HAVE 
BEEN READING LIKE A FIEND.  THIS LAST ONE "THISTLE IN THE MIST" SHOCKED ME.  I THOUGHT IT A HISTORICAL ROMANCE, 
BUT IT REALLY WENT FOR SEXUAL CONTENT AND VIOLENCE.
IT CONTAINED COUNTLESS RAPES, TORTURE, WAR WITH HORRID WOUNDS AND LOSS OF LIMBS DETAILED, WHORES, LESBIANS,
HOMOSEXUALS, KIDNAPPING AND MURDER.  IT WAS SET DURING THE TIME OF NAPOLEON AND TOOK PLACE IN SCOTLAND AND THEN
THE CANADA'S.   IT WAS HORRIFYING AT TIMES AND NOW I SEE
THERE IS GOING TO BE A SEQUEL OUT SOMETIME THIS YEAR WITH MORE HORRORS FACING THE HEROINE.  I WILL NOT BE 
READING IT.  I DO NOT THINK THAT ALL THIS HORROR COULD HAPPEN TO ONE PERSON AND THEN HAVE MORE TO COME.  I THINK THE AUTHOR OVERDID IT.  I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE.  I NEED TO FIND SOMETHING "LIGHTER" TO READ NEXT SO THAT I AM NOT SCARRED FOR LIFE.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!

 photo e9fa7621-ec60-4600-a8a2-5991d6029be8_zps82e232c9.jpg
Mary Ann Oh no not you too with waking up early!.
Oh how wonderful your breakfast sounds,I have high potassium so no more bacon for me for a while and I so miss it.
There is nothing as good as fresh eggs,my sister had hens I would go collect the eggs every morning when I was home two years ago the fresh out of the hen eggs sure beats thew store ones.

You are so welcome I knew you haven't seen my grandson but you did see Morgan as a baby
they have grown so fast.
Thank you so much for your Prayers I will take them for sure as you know I am a diabetic and now having some complications with it now.

 photo e9fa7621-ec60-4600-a8a2-5991d6029be8_zps82e232c9.jpg
Lou Ann Yep Morgan is growing like a weed 5 this past Sept. and she lost her first tooth,she was in daycare and poor girl swallowed it didn't know it had fallen out lol but the tooth fairy came any way and left her 5 dollars,heck I only ever got 50 cents!!.
Cowan was 2 also in Sept.

Thank you for your prayers I will take all the help from above I can get.
as I was just saying to Mary Ann I am a diabetic and now facing problems from it,I will do what ever it takes to keep my self well I have too much to stay healthy for.
OK lady you just keep your snow ya hear lol
Oh my that book doesn't sound like anything I would like I have been a long time lover of Norma Roberts I just love her writing,I love books that get me in that Happy Place, I don't even like those horror movies either give me a good love story or a good comedy and I am just fine.

We do pick up Morgan every Monday, Wednesday and every other Friday from JK. we usually take her to the plkay area st the local McDonald's near her school then take her home not long after either Rob or Karyne is home with Cowan he is in all day daycare so we get to see him too, thankfully they live not to far a way from us.

 photo e9fa7621-ec60-4600-a8a2-5991d6029be8_zps82e232c9.jpg

Our Christmas was almost the Christmas that wasn't,we lost power Christmas the week before Christmas for a few days we had a nasty ice storm that left millions with out power,thankfully it
s wasn't that icy cold we had last week.
But the power did come back on Christmas Eve afternoon
We were invited to Our Son and daughter N laws for Christmas evening it was wonderful,Christmas is always a joy with kids around.
New Years Eve was quiet it never was a big thing with us,we were in bed long before 2014 came in.
I hope everyone here had a Wonderful Christmas and A Happy New Year
.

Well that's it for me

Wishing All A Great Day

Good Morning

Today was trash and recycle pick up day.  It's been so windy we couldn't leave anything out last night so I was up at 6:30 and took everything to the curb, then I folded the load of laundry we did yesterday.  Can that be true?  Dorothy actually productive before 7 AM??

This was my reward.

 

  

  
Lou Ann, I do love seeing everything freshened with snow ~~ as long as I don't have to drive in it or shovel it. smiley80

You really are burning through the books lately.   I'm still just crawling along.   I definitely think I will pass on Thistle in the Mist, though!  

smiley11
I don't think I will be online tomorrow.   I have a haircut in the morning, and then because the Oral Surgeon sent my cardiologist a request for approval for my surgery, Dr Kim's office called and said I have to come in for an exam before he can give the ok.   I really hadn't expected that.  I'm sure Dr Breckinridge would have just ok'd it, but he retired last year and I was transferred to Dr Kim, and I've never seen him in his new capacity as my cardiologist.   He was previously my Electrophysiologist (oversees my defibrillator and does the surgery to replace it).    This is a serious pain in the tush for several reasons, but I do understand why he wants to do it this way.   Hopefully there will be no problems.  I'm about at the end of my problem tether. 

Have a Happy Day, all, and I'll see you on Saturday.

Dorothy

Hello ladies
Snow, snow, snow...am getting tired of seeing snow.  I worry so about icy sidewalks and drives.  Am going out 
tomorrow late afternoon and evening.  Going to my friend
Nan's in Oshkosh to celebrate her birthday.  It is sad 
because one of her Aunts died this week.  The funeral
is tomorrow but I am not going.  Not dealing with 2 outings in one day.  Do not think I am up for that.  Nan always has a theme for her birthday dinners.  She gets a series of books "Christmas Around the World.  So she picks a different country or place each year.  This year it is Christmas in Jerusalem.  I bought some Halvah for my contribution.  It is a confectionery made with sesame paste.  There are all different kinds depending on where you are in the world.  This is actually marble Halvah (Choc. and Van.)  They say you just break some off the big bard and let it melt in your mouth.
I should go and have my INR done Mon. and the ladies are coming in for the evening and supper from Applebee's.  Then we will have our gift exchange.  We
ate the blueberry torte that we made for last Mon. so
do not know what we will do for dessert.  Maybe I will have some Halvah left as I bought 2 tubs of it, though 
they are small.  Not going to fret over it.
I had a really bad night last night and am dead tired.
I did not nap at all and it is now 2am so it is time to sleep.
have a great Saturday.  I probably will not be in tomorrow.
Hugs,

Good Morning All

It's 37F will reach the low 40's today with cloudy skies and rain.

Yesterday we did some grocery shopping I had to clean out the refrigerator to make room for everything we got.


Lou Ann
I am so sick of winter we still have some snow left and more due for tomorrow and Monday Bring on the Spring weather.

I'm sorry hearing about your aunt passing

I don't blame you sometime two days outings is a bit much

Hope your friend has a wonderful Birthday

How wonderful to have a Themed Birthday that sounds like fun.

Don't think I ever heard of  Halvah but it sounds good is it hard to make?

Monday sounds like fun too with the gift exchange,

Hope you did gt a good rest in and feel much better.


Waving to ALL

RE:WELCOME TO THE JANUARY 2014 CHECK-IN

Good Morning and welcome to the Weekend.

Yesterday was awful, starting with waking up at 4 AM and not being able to get back to sleep.  Then when I went for my haircut, Sharyl was running late and I was so tired and cold all I could think of waiting for her was finding a warm blanket and going to sleep.  I get really bone chilled when I am overtired.  I think I did get a good hair cut, but back at home I was so tired and cold I couldn't even get online and finally just put two lap robes over myself and snoozed (more like passed out) for an hour.  

Then we placed a grocery delivery order for today. The last delivery order was October 12th, so the shelves are bare.

Since this was to be the first time I saw Dr Kim as my Cardiologist and I had no idea what to expect from him, I stressed myself out.   In the Oral Surgeon's office my BP was  way high (162/100), so I've been taking it at home, and it's been all over the board from 118/68 to 150/100 and everything in between.  I envisioned problems with the appointment and I'm sure drove it higher.    No need to worry.  It was 120/80 and Dr Kim was a small fraction of as thorough as Dr Breckinridge had been.  A good thing yesterday to relieve my concern about future appointments, but I'm not so sure how good it is long term.  I think he was as puzzled by the request for his blessing from the Oral Surgeon as I was by his having me come in to see him now.   He does want me to have an Echo, but no urgency and it doesn't need to be done before the surgery, and to see him in a year.   Huge relief.  As usual I stressed myself for nothing.

I do realize how ridiculous I am, but all things medical make me crazed and I can't seem to control that with self talk.  I am deeply embarrassed to express my silly fears to you all when you all handle much more serious issues without coming unglued.   

On the way home, we picked up my prescription for the antiseptic mouth wash I will need to use the day before the biopsy and for a week afterwards, and Mike stopped at the liquor store for some Porter, and then at the meat market for a roast and some packages of ground beef for tacos for the weekend and a future meat loaf.

At home we shared a glass of Louis Martini Cabernet (very good) and then called out for Pizza.  The Pizzeria was celebrating it's 30th anniversary and sold a second pizza for 30 cents, so we'll be eating pizza for a couple more days!

Unfortunately we both woke up at 4 AM again this morning.  

Way TMI, I know.  Lol.

smiley85

Barb, your weather is finally getting warmer ~ YAY!  And then I read on ~ Oh, no.  Back to snow!  And now RAIN!   You can never get bored with your weather, can you?  Ha.

I'm glad you got a good haircut.  Nothing makes a gal feel better than a good easy to care for haircut!

Have a lovely weekend.  I'm still sending healing prayers.

smiley85

Lou Ann ~ more snow!   It's beginning to look like Wisconsin!!   I share your concern about icy walks and driveways.  My balance is really awful and I never could walk on ice well.  Stay upright!

So Nan is having her birthday party after her Aunt's funeral?   I think I'd have rescheduled it.  Hard to have fun when you come from the funeral of someone you have been close to.   Still, if all the plans have been made, it's hard to change them, too.   

I love the idea of themed parties.  Your friends are all so much fun.  Where did you get the Halvah?  It sounds good.

Good luck with your INR on Monday and I know you'll have fun at your gift exchange.  My INR has been in range the last two times ~ thank goodness.  I will take it early, on the Monday before the Biopsy, to ensure it isn't over 3.  Lovely to be able to do it myself rather than having to go into the Lab and have several poor phlebotomists try to get blood from this turnip.   I'd be stressing about that, too.  Ha.

I definitely feel your no sleep pain!  In fact, I share it.  Hope you can get a good nap today and then sleep well tonight.

smiley85

Waving at Mary Ann.

Good Morning.

It's supposed to get up to 62 degrees today ~ what purrrfect weather for the Big Game.

We got our big Grocery Delivery yesterday.  It came from a different grocery store than usual and they made some unauthorized substitution and left something off, so now they have to come back today and bring the things we ordered.  We sent the un-ordered things back with the driver.  There are always things that aren't in stock so we never get everything we order, but we clearly mark "no substitutions", and this is the first time that has happened.  They were nice about it and except for having to wait for them to re-deliver this afternoon, it's all good and we have enough supplies in the pantry and garage to last us a good long while.

Have a Swell Sunday.

Go Broncos!

Hello ladies
I had a lovely time at my friends last night.
I will explain why it was ok to go ahead with the party even though the funeral the same day.  They treated the wake and the funeral as a celebration of a life well lived.  Nan's Aunt Jamie, was 66, and that is "old" for someone with Down's Syndrome.  Jamie had a great life with a huge family that totally accepted and loved her.
She was on the lower end of the Down's spectrum.  Not at all like the actors and actresses you see on TV, etc.  Of course, in her time, they 
did not send them to school, etc and they said she had the mentality of a 18 month old...which was ridiculous.  Jamie loved life, almost as much as she loved her beer, lol.  So it was like a big party.
And it was Nan's birthday and would have been hard to reschedule to a time when all can get together.
The food at Nan's dinner was wonderful and brought by all.   I cannot recall the name of the lamb dish that Nan made but it was delicious.  It involved lamb, onions and orange juice.  She said she just browned the lamb, put it in the crockpot and threw in the other ingredients and set it to cook.  I want to make it.  Louann made couscous.  It had dates and who knows what in it, it was wonderful.  Nan also made sauteed vegetables,
not sure what the seasonings were, but I liked it.  Also had rice...it was a long grain rice and I cannot recall it's name either, but it was so light, it was wonderful.  Kirstie made date muffins that we fabulous.  We also had hummus and crackers.  Gary and Steve brought baklava from a Mid Eastern Bakery.  I think my Halvah was the least popular item.  I could not get anyone to take any home with them, lol.  I did like the flavor, but it's consistency was very odd. It flaked apart when you broke pieces off and when you put it in your mouth it was almost like putting something powdered in your mouth.  It became pasty as you chewed it.  By then we were all stuffed and no one really even wanted any more to eat.  I will give it another try tomorrow and see what I think.
I slept like the dead last night.  Went to bed around 1:30 and got up at 9:30....8 hrs sleep.  And then I proceeded to doze off and on all late morning and early afternoon.  It was ridiculous.  I probably will not sleep tonight.  I am going to wait till Tuesday to go for my INR.  Too much hassle to fit it in tomorrow.
Dorothy, I am sorry you are both having sleep issues.  And I think we all understand about your anxiety over health issues.  Anyone who has had major health problems like we all have cannot help but worry that it is something devastating since we have already experienced that.  I think it is typical.  I hope your hair cut is a good one and Congrats on your team winning.  
Hello Barb, I think we are all tired of the snow.  But it seems that I complain about the weather no matter what it is, lol.
Also waving at Mary Ann and wishing she was here.  Along with annnieM, it has been quite a 
while since we heard from her and it get's me to worrying.  Hopefully she will make it in soon.
So another week is blooming, and you my friends
are the flowers in my garden.  Take care.
Hugs,

Hello.  It's a brand new week.  What will we make of it?

Yesterday it was 64 degrees, but today it isn't supposed to get above the higher 40s.  Just above freezing as we speak.  I have no complaints.  High 40s with no winds here will be lovely.    64 was lovlier. 

We had a nice do-nothing day yesterday.  We watched the games off and on.  I'm not a huge fan, but of course it gets exciting when your home town team is going to the Superbowl.  In the evening we watched Revenge and then Downton Abby, then in the bedroom we watched some old Midsomer Murders (BBC).  We are such an exciting couple.

smiley29

Lou Ann, I'm so glad you had such a nice time with your friends.   I love the idea that the birthday party coincided with the celebration of life for this lovely woman.  

The food sounded really good too ~ as I've said, I love how much fun your friends are.    I don't really like lamb, but I'm always willing to try it fixed different ways to see if I might like it THAT way.   Except for cauliflower, which I've tried every possible way it can be made.  Blech.  LOL

Great that you got a really good night's sleep.  That makes such a difference it the way we feel.  I've slept well for the last two nights and wouldn't you know ~ my ankles aren't swollen at all.  Of course they HAD to be swollen in the Dr's office, but fortunately for me he didn't get all upset about it.

I share your concerns about our annnieM.  I hate not knowing how she is.

smiley31to Mary Ann ~ and anyone else who might pop in.

I'm Baa-ack.

I have an appointment with the EP Clinic in the morning for my Cardiac Defibrillator to be interrogated.  I do that twice a year from home, and once in the office where they further test the machine by pacing my heart.   I know I'm probably coming to the end of my battery's life, but aside from that this would be ~ is ~ no big deal.     However by the time I get my shower and get dressed and ready to go, I'm sure I won't have time enough to post in the morning, so I thought I'd stop by now.

Be good!

Hello Dorothy
I am glad you are sleeping better. You lead a more exciting life than I do, lol. You get out more! Today
was not a good day for me. I slept well so thought all
would be great, but I just wasn't feeling the best. And
we were trying to arrange our meal order for the ladies
getting together tonight. But to put it nicely, as the day went on, I had more and more gastric upset. At 1pm and several doses of Pepto, I postponed our get together. In the long run I am glad I did, but still, I was so irritated with myself. We also have subzero temp warnings through tomorrow for -20 to -27 with windchill so it is just as well as both ladies come from out of town. In some aspects I am better, but still dealing with some upset. I ate rice for supper since it is easy on the digestive system, but I am hungry now.  
Got news from my Aunt Velma around supper time that my Uncle Keith has passed away. He had emphysema and has not been good for a long time. He refused to give up smoking. He really was a pain in the arse man.
Very narrow minded and often rude, but I feel bad for his immediate family. I often hated my dad, but I loved him too. I do not think that anyone here will be going to Pennsylvania for the funeral. I am sure mom would like to but with school in session, Diane would not be able to take her. Plus the fact that you cannot trust this weather. Oops, I forgot to ask my sister if she could take me for my INR tomorrow, if all is well, lol. I had better give her a call.  Have a great day tomorrow.
Hugs,
