Welcome to March!

annnieM, your lovely new skin makes me think of
St Paddy's Day.  Lovely ~ as are your new borders!

7015F10ff.gif picture by DorothyCatlady

This Winter Olympics are over and I thought they were simply wonderful.  I would have liked a few of the results to have been different, but I really couldn't argue with them.  Not at all like the past when the Soviet Block Countries went behind closed doors and made deals and no matter how perfect a Western Athlete was, they couldn't take the gold. Canada did a wonderful job, and I couldn't have enjoyed it more.

We just got a "skif" of snow yesterday and last night, and we have temps supposedly heading for the 50s later this week!   Then, of course, it will snow again.  Ha.  The Sunny Side of the Street has NO snow, and we are still completely covered.  You'd think it was 'staged' or something.  I'd find it a whole lot funnier if WE lived on the Sunny Side of the Street!  Ha.

Yesterday we put the brisket in around 11:30.  It smells soooo good, and that smell rose to my second floor bedroom all day long.  Enough to make you drool ~~ But WAIT!   I started getting a queasy stomach and by late afternoon, I was actually SICK!   That wonderful smell, and here I was barfing.   An hour after I got rid of "it", I started to feel better, but I was still hesitant to tie into a big meal.  I ate a few crackers, and felt SO sorry for me.   Instead of making the accompanying veggies, Mike just had a BBQ Beef Brisket Sandwich.  He said it was wonderful. (Gee, thanks for telling me! LOL)    We'll make potatoes and stuff and have a real meal tonight ~ I hope! 

I did get the bed freshened yesterday before I got sicky, so at least I accomplished a little bit.

7015F10ff.gif picture by DorothyCatlady


annnieM, how was the play?   I still haven't looked it up to remind myself what it was about, but I'm still sure I saw it as a movie in my very long lost youth.
 
7015F10ff.gif picture by DorothyCatlady 

Mary Ann ~ Ahhhhh.   Finally back in your own wonderful bed.  I can almost feel your pleasure.     Brrrrr ~ but on the other hand, few things are nicer than snuggling into a comfy bed all warm and toasty when it's really cold outside of the bed!  

I saw that there were some Bones reruns back to back, but I had to watch the closing ceremonies.  We do love that show.  "24" tonight and several other things, so I think we're gonna have to do some taping.

Ah, I'm sorry you need Tech Support to tweak your new system for you, and sorrier yet that they aren't available 24/7.   Hope you get it all fixed today.

7015F10ff.gif picture by DorothyCatlady

Lou Ann ~ a whole post, FINALLY!   Believe me, I know your frustration first hand!

I had to admit that as disappointed as I was with BOTH the Women's and Men's Hockey Games outcomes, I couldn't help but be happy for Canada.  Their Olympics would have ended on an entirely different note had the results been different.    The Colorado Avalanche have a game today ~ I can't for the life of me remember who they are playing ~ but I saw on the news that both teams have Olympians playing.  I can't even imagine playing that game yesterday and then being back here to play with their respective professional teams today. 

If they yell at you for not getting your bloodwork done as often as you should, tell them to submit the paperwork so you can do it at home like I do.  Sooo convenient, even if I wish I could just do it once a month instead of every other week.  (Do you get the feeling that I am never satisfied?  LOL)

Make it a great March, everyone!

AM)

March is here already.  Wow!  Thanks for starting us out, Dorothy!  I got hooked into making a calendar and got here late.

Dorothy I love your new border!  I would have used it except that already had one loaded up.  I hope you have saved that over in the saint patrick's day borders.  So sorry to hear that you were sick.  I hope you have a lovely barbecued brisket meal tonight.  I really enjoyed what I watched of the Olympics, and I will do better next time.  We must be in sync because I was sick yesterday afternoon and I did not go to the play.  Dagnabit.  What's a person to do, though.

Hi Mary Ann!  I am definitely going to be careful with my son and his woman ... and I'm definitely going to tread softly.  What idiots.  Who would want to sit on the floor rather than a chair?  Glad to hear that you are at home for a little bit and enjoying your lovely bed.  I hope that the tech support irons out all the little glitches and that you are soon completely happy with your new system.

Hi Lou Ann!  Sorry I confused you with getting the March skin done early and put up.  I absolutely love green, so I couldn't wait.  I agree with you that I'm hungry for meatloaf now that I mentioned it.  I absolutely love meatloaf sandwiches.  Good luck with your blood work!

I'm feeling fine today after yesterday.  I have no idea what I will accomplish today.  Already I've done a few little chores so perhaps I'm done.  I have a friend in a hospital in Indiana that I've been worried about and I'm trying to find out what hospital she's at.  I guess I will ask her husband.  I like to send flowers.  She's had a biopsy on her lymph nodes, and also has blood clots in her legs.  I've never been in the hospital so I can't imagine having two things wrong with me.  Scary stuff. 

Wishing you all a marvelous Monday!  Hugs,

Hello ladies...

It must be catchy cause my stomach was on the fritz today and I did not for my blood work.  Will try for tomorrow...my sister can take me after she picks Jordan up from school.  Yep, he is back in school. They are also implementing some changes to help him.  He will get out of all classes 3min early and be able to be to his next class before those that bully him are out of class. Also they changed some of his classes to more structured ones.  Also made his last class a study hall where he will be expected to do homework.  Tomorrow he goes to court for the drug charge...am thinking the fact that they allowed him back in school will help him there but I hope they impose a lot of restrictions on him.  I am no longer talking to his older brother.  I wrote him an e-mail and asked him some very serious questions about what he wanted out of his life and I pointed out when he was headed at the moment.  I told him I expected an answer. I never even got an acknowledgment that he got it.  So I am not speaking with him for a while.

annnieM, your friend in the hospital...it scares me.  That is exactly how they found my Cancer.  I went in and they found I had blood clots in my leg but following the source they found the enlarged lymph nodes.  I had a biopsy done.  The surgeon that did it told me to expect that I had Cancer.  He was right.  Was still one of the worse days of my life.  Being told that when you are sick and alone in the hospital with no warning was awful.  My mom was in a meeting at the hospital so I could not reach her and I wanted her so bad.  But 10 min later Louann and Bruce walked in the door and I fell apart.  God sent them to me when I needed them most.  They both held my hands and hugged me and prayed for me and stayed with me till my mom came.  They are my rocks.  I am going to pray for your friend.

Dorothy...that barbecued brisket sounds so good.  I hope you were able to have some today.  I had hot dogs for supper, lol.  They were really quite good :) and I enjoyed them.  But the brisket sounds a lot better,  Canada did themselves proud.  My brother does not want to see another maple leaf for the rest of his life.  He took the hockey loss badly, lol.  The USA did well with a record for the most medals in a Winter Olympics.  They said at the closing that many of the hockey players were on their way back to the states as they had games to be in.

I finished the 2nd book in my Nora Robert series and have started the 3rd and last one which is called "The Pagan Stone".  They are all very eventful and I have always loved the good against evil concept for stories.  Also love fantasy so the whole Gods and Demons thing is great too.  Scary also...the demons anyway, lol.  I do believe that we have "demons" in our world and we call then serial killers.

So that is it for me today.  I will check in again tomorrow with you all.  Have a Tremendous Tuesday.

Hugs,

Good Morning!

What's up with the Internet today?  S-L-O-W!  I thought it was just me, but Mike just got on his Laptop and it's the same for him.
smiley30annnieM, not you too.  Are we passing a bug around 'virtually'?   Sheesh!  Mine felt like a little food poisoning, and acted that way too because it was gone as soon as it was . . . well, 'gone'.  Still, I didn't eat anything different than Mike did, and he was fine.

I did get to have my BBQ Brisket dinner last night, and it was pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

I will add my prayers for your friend.  That really sounds scary.

smiley32 Lou Ann, not you too!   Are we passing a virus around virtually?  Be sure to wash your hands and use a bacterial wipe on your kepboard before you come into the group.  Ha.

What good news that Jordan is back in school, and it sounds like the school is willing to work with him.  Hmmm.  It seems to me like they ought to be taking some action about the bulliles, too.  Perhaps they are.   I hope things go well with his court appointment.  Is he scared at all?  I really hope he is ~~ Scared Straight.

You'll have to put up some reviews of the JD Robb books for us in the Book Thread!

 

Have a lovely day, everyone. 



Can you all see the above tag?  I loaded it differently than I usually do.

Good Morning!

Hi Dorothy!  I can see your tag!  Lovely!  Glad that you enjoyed your brisket meal. My Internet isn't slow.  Maybe it's just Colorado.  Thank you for prayers for my friend.  It is scary for me and I'm not even there.  I can't imagine how scary this is for her.  The gal is the editor/creator of MS MuSings, and even with being in the hospital she got out this month's issue.  She's amazing!

Hi Lou Ann!  I hope that you are feeling better and that you get your blood work done.  Thanks for the information about blood clots and cancer.  Even though it's scary it's good to have more information. I had no idea that the one Dr. knew what he was talking about.  Now I'm even more worried.  I'm so glad that your friends showed up to help you out after your diagnosis.  Friends are good.  Happy to hear that Jordan is going to have more structure in school and I hope it works. I really hope that you write a review about that Nora Robert series you've been reading.  So far it sounds really interesting!  I love fantasy!

I have lots of books I need to write up, also.  Perhaps I'll get that done today.  I also need to clean up a bit as we have dinner here tomorrow night with my folks and Zarah and Jeff.  Tomorrow I go to physical therapy in Rapid City, and we could take Zach and Jeanette to lunch, if they would go.  We tried to call them last night and didn't get through, so we'll try once more today.  We can't just pop in because that's presumptuous
and rude, according to them.  Once again, their loss.

On with my day.  Wishing you all a great one!  Hugs to all,

Hello Cuppa's
Jordan's court appearance went fine.  He got a fine and that is it.  Wait till he goes for the drugs, that will be a different story.  Today was for the pot pipe.  I hope they scare the crap out of him.  It is the only way anything is going to change. 
Dorothy, glad you are feeling better and got to have your brisket.  Maybe I will too someday.  I will try and write up something tomorrow about the Nora Robert trilogy I am reading.  I have not read any she writes as JD Robb so cannot help you there.  I think annnieM said she had though.
annnieM, I think most of us love it when friends and family drop in unexpectedly.  But I think that in Zach and Jeanette's case it could be disastrous.  Have a good time with your dinner guests.  I remember you said Zarah was going to make dessert.  Hope it's a good one.
Looks like I am not getting out for my blood work till Thursday so I am sure that I will get reprimanded.  Oh well, thus is life!  Everyone have a Wicked Wednesday...and I mean the in the best way, lol.
Hugs,


annnieM

GOOD MORNING AND
WELCOME TO MARCH!

SURE AND PULL UP A CHAIR, POUR YOURSELF A CUPPA AND LET'S HAVE A VISIT.


Oh My Goodness...
Yep it's rain, rain, & more rain it poured all last night
I awoke to my usual lake in my driveway to a couple
of more added in for good measure...Wow I really felt
it my whole body was protesting this past week leading
up to this storm...I am not able to get rid of my pain...
Ah tis' the luck of the Irtish I suppose...I'm at Ann's house visiting Walter & Maggie...I also visited Evelynne today for a while we had lots of fun today playing in her bedroom...Silly little girl tried to get me to crawl in her house!!! I told her if I got in I would be unable to get out!!! So she thankfully let me pass on that...Lol...

Dorothy...
You put on your Brisket & then proceeded to get sick!!!
Sorry about that & that you didn't get your favorite
meal...Thank God for left overs...I don't know what
I'd do without them...Yum...Yum...The microwave
comes in real handy these days...Enjoy tonight's meal and I
hope it goes down without a hitch...

Oh, and I seemed to have fixed my problem myself...The last time it was on it hadn't closed down properly and I fixed that & then restarted it and it started right up with no problem...I LOVE MY HIGH SPEED INTERNET!!!

I have a hint for ya Dorothy, someday when you think about it google 'Northern Nights' and buy a set of their outstanding Portuguese flannel sheets you will sleep on nothing else from then on...Weaving the fibers so that the wrong side of the sheet feels as yummy as the front side it's awesome to climb into a bed made with those sheets...I also have a couple of really fantastic sheet sets of there's for spring and summer...I love that company, everything they make is , oh I just had to put that in like that I see my niece do it in her role playing web site she has...Silly me...I tried to use your beautiful greenery on my post but all I got was gobbily gook...


annnieM...
As I said to Dorothy, I think I fixed the problem myself because there hasn't been any more trouble yet...Now I will have to call him and ask him to repeat what he told me about my e-mail I can't send any e-mails for a while until I get changed over to my new one & quit my dial-up...Geez Louis all these things to do...
I love my bed to pieces if you ever slept in it...Lol...
You'd then know why I love it so much...

How are ya today feeling any better??? Oh, wait I see from your post that you are...OMG!!! I know exactly what you mean about having two things wrong at once and winding up in the hospital with them...The Biopsy is scary but the blood clots in her legs are even scarier...I took care of Ann when she had her knee operated on and then the next week she developed a blood clot that started at her knee and went down the whole length of her leg!!! I was told by the Dr. what to do, but I already knew...Ann was not supposed to move from her bed/chair unless it
was to go to the bathroom period...If it breaks lose and goes where it's not supposed to, you have a good chance of dying, very scary stuff...Your friend will be in my prayers it goes without saying...



Lou Ann...
Sorry to hear you caught Dorothy's stomach ache...I hope you are right as the rain that falls from above the day after...Jordan's back in school eh??? It really sounds to me like the school is making positive changes...I think it's ridiculous that they have to let him out of his classes early on account of 'Bully's' but I think it's necessary and I really like the 'Study Hall' at the end of the day where he's expected to do his homework...Kudos to the school for coming up with the changes...

Jordan's drug hearing is another problem...I can see the Judge giving him a home sentence where he will have to
wear the ankle bracelet until his sentence is served he will be able to go to school and then home and that is all...
I hope they give him that & not real prison time...At least that will teach him he has to be responsible for his actions and there will be a cost...

I'm sorry to hear that your the older brother has chosen to join the ranks of the no answers to e-mail group...Maybe if you give him a taste of his own medicine it will work who knows...

Lou Ann, I expect you were scared to pieces being alone in the hospital like that...Wasn't it just like God to send you two guardian angels in the form of Louann & Bruce and they new just what to do for you...He does work in mysterious ways sometimes...

 

Dorothy...
My goodness you snuck in again...It seems this is making the rounds again...I do think it's just a virus and not the stomach flu...Sorry everyones seems to be under the weather...I get sick once in awhile and I believe it's from all the medication that I take...At least that's what I have come to thinking it is...

smiley32I love this little smiley it reminds me of me...Lol...
I wish I could just copy & past stuff in here like we used to it was so much fun...

Oh yes I see your tag, and is there any chance that we'll be getting one or that we can beg for one???

annnieM...

Here you are again too!!! I know I'm behind a bit but I was so gosh darn tired I slept in seriously this morning and I just couldn't get myself up to the computer tonight until 11:00pm which makes it really late for me...I wanted to come in so as not to be too far behind...

Lou Ann...
Your right the 'pot pipe' is one thing the drugs are something else again...I too hope they scare the crap out of him he needs it scared out of him...Is he the type that will respond well to it??? I hope so...

I have an Evelynne ;visit scheduled for tomorrow and then I'm done for the week...
Sarah has been and is in a good frame of mind school must be going okay I think I will ask her again how she's
doing...I ask her every once in a while and she says just fine...Tonight when she came home I stayed with Sarah for awhile because she wanted my help making chicken stock, using a picked over rotisserie chicken she had frozen...Sarah googled chicken stock and started reading
and I told her the one was starting from scratch with raw chicken & the other was the one she wanted because her
chicken was already cooked, celery, carrots, onions, were added I told her I used rosemary as it's good with chicken & pork she put in fresh Thyme & Parsley from her garden...Since she had no pepper corns I suggested just using fresh ground pepper from her pepper shaker that is pepper corn...I left her once she got it all done and started...She got to use her 'BAD BOY POT' that's what Sarah calls her stock pot!!! Lol...Evelynne liked that & immediately repeated it...Bad Boy Pot!!! Lol... I said good-bye and I'll see ya tomorrow and left...What a kick that little girl is...I call Evelynne 'My Silly Little Evelynne Girl' mainly because of all the silly little things she does...I will ask her if it's alright if I call her that...It just seems to roll of the tongue quite easily...Hope she doesn't mind...Tonight she wanted her house in the living room and then she drug it from where her Mom put it, to where it was right in the traffic area...Her plan was to keep everyone in the house...Unfortunately I had two dogs waiting for me to feed them so I had to make my exit...
She's just so stinkin' cute!!!

Oh!!! My brother called and my niece Ashley surprised her Mom by flying in today & her sister Audrey went and picked her up at the airport...Roy had to pick up Blake at school and Bailey at school and then Bailey to gym all the while trying to make up an excuse as to why Audrey wasn't doing it and where she was!!! OMG!!!
It was worth it was what Roy said just to see Debbie's jaw drop open in disbelief at her other daughter standing in her house!!! It made her day I can tell you...Now Roy has a houseful again I will go over and add to the mayhem later this week...

I have to go...

Healing Hugs & Prayers To All My Cuppa Gals...

Hi There Cuppa Gals...
I can't believe it I'm the first one in!!!
I'm gonna try to put the good luck forth all month long...This will have to be really short I have so many things to do today it's mind boggling and I don't think I'll be able to get it all done...

I'll be back later after visiting Evelynne for the day...It's my favorite thing and I say again it's the little one's that make living worth while I missed the patter of little feet, which for so long were missing in my family, but now all that's changed the kids are having kids...I now have 3gn's & 3gn's I love them all and I wish I had it in me to visit them all...

Must go now check ya all later...

Sure and the Top o' the Mornin' to Y'All.

 annnieM, our Internet Service seems to be back to 'normal' today.  Thank goodness.  It was slower than cold molassas yesterday and the day before.

Oooh, I am looking forward to your book reviews!  I've always loved reading your reviews.  I got so far behind in doing individual reivews that I threw up my hands in despair ~ lol.  I started putting up Authors with information on the series they write ~ if they write a series.  I really need to put up a blurb when I finish a book.

I hope Zach and Jeanette will allow you to take them to lunch ~ if that isn't too 'pushy' of you. 

Ok, I have to admit that I'm one of those anti-social people who think it's permissable to shoot people who just drop in without warning, but that's because I don't resemble the ladies on TV who always have lovely clothes and full make up on and are always ready to receive company.  You may not see me in my 'normal' state.  LOL
Call and let me know you're coming and I'll welcome you with open arms.
Love & Kisses, Hannah the Hermit

Lou Ann, I'm glad the Court Appearance went well.  He does need  to get a good scare, but I hope that's all he gets.

I tend to think of Nora Roberts and JD Robb interchangably since I haven't read either of them.   I will love hearing about either or both.  What a proliffic writer she is.  I've never heard anything but raves about any of her personas.  

 Mary Ann, Did your March come in like a Lion?  It looks pretty wet there in your post.

I'm so delighted that you are lovin' your High Speed Internet!   A chunk of our Social Life is spent online, and when you can't get 'here', it's miserable.  Besides, when you can't get here, I miss you!

Hmmmm.  Flannel Sheets ~ they sound HOT.  No?   I've never slept on them.  I do kinda like slipping into cool, soft sheets.

Hmmmm again.   I wonder why you couldn't copy the greenery and paste it.  Strange. 

I didn't make that lovely tag from yesterday's post.  Barb (Noni2) made it.   I'll let her know you'd like one.  She hasn't visited here for a while.

You know, I've never made my own chicken stock ~ or beef stock either, for that matter.  I'm sure homemade is much better than the canned versions I use. 

So, you're off for a long weekend?  Enjoy it, with your wonderful bed and High Speed Internet!

  
  We are expecting temperatures in the low 50's for the rest of the week!  Can you even imagine?  March definitely came in like a Lamb ~ although a very slightly snowy lamb.  Does this not bode well for the end of the month?  No matter, we'll enjoy the good weather while it's here.

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Good morning gals!

This morning I have to go to physical therapy, so this will be short.  I wanted to pop in and let you know my friend emailed and she has cancer.  They will be doing a pet scan today.  I googled pet scan and found out it is 'positron emission technology'.  It will find out where the cancer is.  I will call her later and talk to her.  I did talk to her sister in law this morning and both Car and her husband are really down about this.  As you would expect.

Hi Lou Ann!  I'm bad.  I've read all of JD Robb's books and I have not done one book report.  I will try to rectify that.  Zarah made carrot cookies with orange icing (my grandmother's recipe-deelish).  We will have a good time!

Hi Mary Ann!  More rain and more puddles.  Sorry to hear it.  I am going to have to look up your northern nights sheets and check them out.  I'm curious.  I'm so glad that you love your high speed Internet!  I love the way your posts are so cheerful!  Glad to hear that you are catching up on your sleep!  Your great niece Evelyne sounds like a real joy!!  What fun that your niece flew in to surprise her mom!  Have fun visiting Evelyne!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! 

Hugs,

Hello my friends.
I have had a totally uneventful day.  I did wake
up to the news that a bowling alley in town was burning.  They could not even get in for fear of collapse so they are hoping no one was inside. It was reported at 4 am.  They do not know the cause yet.  There had been a fight at the bar that night so there is some talk that it may be arson.  We will see.
Mary Ann, I love reading your posts.  You write so colorfully.  Evelynne sounds like a lot of fun. I am so glad that you are able to enjoy her.  Kudo's on solving your internet issue.  Gotta love that.
Dorothy, I always figure that anyone who drops in gets what they get....no matter what I look like, lol.  Hopefully they came to enjoy your company, not your looks.  I did not get my book reviews done.  Will try and do it Thursday.
annnieM.....mmmmm, carrot cookies with frosting?  That sounds yummy to the max. Can you share the recipe. Carrot Cake is my fav and I would love to try cookies.  With your friend having cancer in the lymph system...I would think it would be one of the cancers that strike that.  Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Hodgkin's or even Leukemia.  They are all closely related.  Mine was the Non-Hodgkin's.  They can do so much these days that it is not as scary as it used to be.  Still the word strikes all of us with fear.  I will keep her in my prayers. 
Everyone was a thoughtful Thursday.
Hugs,

annnieM, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend.  What a horrid thing to happen to her ~ as if MS weren't enough to deal with.  I wish I knew what to say to comfort you.

I'm proud of you for working so hard at your PT Sessions.  I know that will pay off for you!  I can only imagine how hard it is. 



Lou Ann, nothing wrong with a nice uneventful day.    I often think those are the very best kind. 


 
It's supposed to get to 60 degrees here today.  Can you even imagine?  Summer!  But wait a few days . . . . lol   

Have a great day, everyone!

Hi Gals!

Hi Lou Ann!  I can definitely share the recipe for carrot cookies.  There were wonderful!  It's an old family recipe from my grandmother, made back in the good old days.  Why is it that stuff made from old recipes tastes so much better??  As far as my friend, the e-mail I got this morning is that she has cancer everywhere.  She has breast, lymph nodes, lung and bone involved.  Doesn't sound good.  I actually went and googled it, and the information I've found sounds like it is stage four breast cancer.  We're talking a highly educated woman, who had it routinely checked.  This just doesn't make sense.  But you are right, they can do so much nowadays, that even this is treatable.

Hi Dorothy!  Have I told you how much trouble I have with your name and voice recognition?  I guess I don't say Dorothy correctly.  Sheesh.  My physical therapist yesterday suggested yoga...chair yoga.  After I was done researching cancer, I googled chair yoga, and found that I could order a DVD by a lady who made a DVD I used years back called Gentle Fitness.  There were all kinds of people who had dvds for sale, but I like the continuity of continuing with Gentle Fitness.  The gal has MS also.  So, I have ordered a yoga video and I'm pretty excited about it.  The PT sessions aren't so awful, they are actually good and pleasurable, but I pay later.  I generally feel I've been run over by a Mack truck!  LOL.  You had me laughing also about how you do not like drop in company because you may not look your best.  Pshaw.  I cannot imagine you ever looking anything less than gorgeous.  How many times do you have to be told you're gorgeous?  Internalize this!  LOL.

It is also very nice here and my thermometer right next to me says 64.3°, but that's in the sun.  I have no idea what I will do today.  My mind is kind of mushy like oatmeal as I have yet to get my mind around my friends problems.  It just doesn't make sense that a person who has been doctoring should end up with such advanced cancer.  Doesn't promise much hope for people like me who do not doctor worth a darn.  Sigh.

Hi There Cuppa Gals...

Today it is brr cold, and sunny, but I don't know for how long we'll see as the day goes on...I'm not going to hold my breath for continuing sunshine...I of course am freezing in Ann's house [she doesn't run her heater] so I have a pretty tough time of it while I'm here...I wear my fleece bathrobe all day & night just to fight the cold not win it over...When I go into the study to get on the computer I turn her little fan on high & high heat because it's the only heat she allows me to have...I'm sorry I wasn't able to get back on yesterday but I got side tracked and then it was off to visit Evelynne for the remainder of the day...I got home in time to feed the dogs and myself & then promptly fall asleep in the chair!!!

This morning I have to drive down to my Dr.'s office and get some Lyrica's to spell me while I wait for my free pills to come...Then I think I may just go visit my brother's house my niece Ashley dropped in literally with her two kids...I would like to go see them plus I have their Christmas Gifts...Anyway those are my plans so far...

Dorothy...
I love people dropping in too but I'm like you I sometimes run around the house not dressed for company, and with my teeth out of my head!!! I will not tell you how many times people have walked in on me!!! OMG!!! How embarrassing...I could do with a little warning too...

It's mighty wet in my post of yesterday and it was awfully wet yesterday as well...Lol...Yep!!! It rained all day long...Even with all the rain & snowfall there still telling us that the snow-pack isn't enough to make up for years past!!! Oh well it's not for the lack of trying...

You like slipping into cool sheets in the winter time when it's already cold??? Not me that's fine for the rest of the year but not for winter...If my sheets are cold it just takes all the heat that I've tried to store in my body away!!! Then I fight the cold all over again...I wouldn't say they're hot really it's just they're not 'COLD' when you slip into bed at night...Oh but are they soft??? Mmmm...My sister Marian spoiled me for high thread count sheets a couple of years ago on my birthday...Now I have to wait until I catch my favorite 'Northern Nights' sheets when there on sale...Oh my but they have really cool lookin' sheets...

I only had Sunday off because I had to stay and pick Ann up at the airport at night!!! Yikes I don't like it but, she seems to think I can do it just because she can...Does anybody here know if cataract surgery cures the problems of night vision??? I surely hope so it sure puts a cramp in my style not being able to drive at night...It also gets me a lot of flack from people who don't understand...

I did copy & paste your beautiful greenery I just loved it and wanted to use it too...When I copied it at first it was there as the greenery but then when I went back up to add to my post it was gone and I got what I know is all the [program] lingo that's in the background so I had to delete them!!!


Oh I'd love to get that tag thanks for asking but no problem if it's impossible...I know people have not come back like we thought they would some still haven't found us yet it seems...Oh well eventually they'll all find us...Does anybody know how Bubs is doing??? Will she be coming back like normal soon...Kittywhiskers I've asked about before but she seems to have fallen off the grid...I really don't like losing all the other great people in our group I miss them...I miss Ayla coming in too but she is probably really busy with her own group, more's the pity even though she makes it in from time to time...Thank you Ayla...

I left Sarah doing her chicken stock and last night she was using some of it to make risotto??? I'm not sure of the spelling of that but it's a rice dish...I'll have to ask her how it came out...I used to make all my own chicken & beef stock when I was cooking for Dad, I, and the rest of the family whoever popped in at dinner time...Lol...I knew what was in my stocks, no chemicals just celery,carrots,onions,chicken bones & left over meat...I also added a touch of garlic, and a little salt & fresh ground pepper and a few well smashed peas to my chicken stock...Beef was the same except no peas...I made all my own jams & then I learned about the 'Lower Sugar Pectin' way of making jams & once I made them I never looked back...All the jams tasted so awesome more like the fruit!!! It was unbelievable...

I don't know what the temperature is outside but it's really on the cold side!!! Phew!!! I let the dogs out and in and lost all the heat in the house!!! Cheese & Crackers I'm not able to win...Oh well such is life...I'll just hide in the computer room!!! Lol...

By the way my 'March' came in like a 'LION' and I have a feeling it'll go out that way too...

annnieM...

I'm really sad to hear that your friend has Cancer it seems none of us can escape it...Pet Scan, yep remember I told you that, that's the test they should be doing at first instead of waiting and losing the head start they could have but that it's more expensive so they don't do it until it's absolutely necessary??? I think since it catches the cancer once a year we should all get one...That way the Dr's would catch all the cancer's early so we'd have a better chance at surviving...

Yep I am going to visit Ashley, Caylenne, and Colton today Ashley is my older brother Roy's youngest daughter she is visiting from Redlands, CA. she flew in yesterday & they surprised her mother!!! I'm excited to see them...

Oh I am really happy to get home to my great bed, with my fantastic sheets on them...Mmmm...I can just imagine it now!!! Gees Louise you wouldn't think a person could get so excited about a bed, but when you have pain problems it's indeed a big thing and the flannel sheets are just a scrumptious added plus!!! LOL...

Lou Ann...

I am really grateful that you woke up!!! The alternative is not too slick...I love reading every one's posts I'm glad that you have an eventful day maybe you'll be able to catch up on some sleep as well...Oh wait a minute!!! I don't know if you need extra sleep...Silly me I am sure all of can use a few extra zzz's...s

Ya know Lou Ann all the little guys & gals make life worth living...They really are the important things now...I have to admit I love having Evelynne when she gets sleepy coming to me holding her arms up asking to be held...There's nothing in the world like the love of a child...I put her to sleep yesterday after she fought taking a nap until 4:00pm...Her nap lasted until after 6:00pm...Silly little girl...

Oh by the way I am praying no one was in the 'Bowling Alley' and that it was insured!!! Yeah carrot cookies with icing they don't sound to hard to take do they??? I'd make them with Splenda though so I could eat one...

Well gotta run down to my Dr.'s then to my house to pick-up Ashley's family Christmas presents before I get over there which I'm hoping will be today...

Healing Hugs & Prayers To One & All...

I'm also adding annnieM's friend & her loved ones...

Grandma Horst carrot cookies

3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup mashed, cooked carrots
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Cream shortening and sugar.  Add the egg and carrots, and then the flour and baking powder.  Mix well.  Stir in coconut and vanilla.  Drop by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350° till nice and brown.  (about 15 minutes)

Frost with orange frosting:

 juice and zest from one orange
 1 teaspoon butter
 Mix in powdered sugar until thick enough to

Actually, I learned something from watching Zarah.  She didn't spread the frosting on the cookies.  Instead she dipped the tops in the frosting, and that worked really well.  She also added a dash of lemon juice to the frosting because the orange wasn't very tangy.  It also makes way too much frosting, but it's delicious spread on Graham crackers!
