I am getting re-directed mail that I thought I had changed the address on last year. So today I am contacting all the places to make sure that they have the right address on file. Of course one of them did change the address but has put suite 37. We are not a suite we are a house. So now I have to also phone them to straighten that out.

One of my husbands best friends is coming tomorrow to visit. He is going first to Kelowna as he has an aunt there who is turning 100 and then to us for the rest of the weekend. My husband is really looking forward to seeing him.

I am planning my meals out for next week and tomorrow go get any ingredients I need. I am also getting my drivers license renewed. Only bad thing about that is you are not allowed to smile so the picture will be awful..LOL

Have a great day

Oh, LINDA! I do hope he gets better soon! My DH got sick with the same thing a year, later, too. Not sure why this happens. He's better now. Prayers for you!

emoticon emoticon January! 1-31-2020= my thoughts for this day. I've been packing up my marionettes to perform at Nature Preserve, tomorrow. Should be a lovely group! I'm trying out a new number. I'm sure the audience will love it!

My Forever Friend's daughter is about to have a baby. First new born in years, for our 'family' I'm so excited! Sending them a present of stuffed Owls. That is the theme for baby Abigail emoticon emoticon Life is pretty exciting, now! I am VERY blessed! Have a great weekend, be save & healthy! ! GO San Francisco 49ers.

Linda, our prayers are with your DH.

Angela, so glad you have a nice view of the outdoors.

Wallahalla, thank you for the comic relief.

Been trying to catch up on church services (available to us on CD's) that I missed dealing with this tooth surgery issue. I don't like falling behind, and it's certainly an uplift to listen to the various speakers. On Saturdays there is a youth service where a man and a woman speak. So interesting to hear their testimonies and Bible studies.

Pat

Linda - so sorry to hear that

cloudy today but that also means it is warmer so I dont mind. And we are supposed to be getting some rain - yes rain - I am so glad it is not more snow. The snow is still melting away and there are some places where it was piled up that will take some time going away.

I am on a project at work and the consultants are running requirements gathering sessions so I have been on the phone all day in different sessions. These last this week and next week and then I think we have some time to do the tasks they assign us. At least I have a nice view to look at while listening and contributing.

Have a great day

What a rough day. My hubby is in the hospital again. Last year he had a pulmonary embolism and was in the ICU four days. Today is his first day back for the same problem....almost exactly a year later. We had a busy day with tests, etc. But just praying all goes well this time. It's not good to have this serious issue again.

I am sorting cupboards and drawers to see what I need to declutter. Yesterday I pulled out all the tablecloths, napkins, placemats, and doilies. Today I am going to look through them as I certainly do not need as many as I have and also my table is smaller than I had before.

Have a great day

It has been hectic lately. Today hubby had his diabetes appointment with his primary care physician. He now has to inject insulin. We were actually at the appointment for 2 hours. It was a bit stressful. Tomorrow we have to go to the cardiologist because of the breathing issues. I imagine he will be required to have some tests done after that. Not a lot of gym time this week for me. We stopped to get soup and salad at a local restaurant for an early dinner. I did get in a walk today.

Good morning

It is a beautiful sunny day today. I went and had my 3 month blood-work done and my A1C came back at 6.4 - I am so happy and thrilled. Maybe if I keep this up I can reduce the meds I am on. I also found out that I do not have stones but I have a urinary tract infection so now I am waiting to see what antibiotics I am going to be given.

Other than that I am happy and loving working at home sitting in the sun.

Have a great day

Angela

Thank you, Wallahalla, for the comic relief.

If DH doesn't have to travel to Columbus this week, he may take a couple of us to the Cleveland Botanical Gardens for their special orchid display.

You may have seen the comments about PROVERBS31JULIA. For those that did not know, she was a long time member of our team. She died of cancer. She was a beautiful person. So sad.

Oh, LINDA! hope all is well for you, 2!

My sharing: 1-26-2020 Yesterday I went to an awards show for the volunteers the Nature Preserve. I've been there doing my performances for 4 yrs, now! Over 500 hours, LOVE it! It feels so GREAT to give, in this way. The awards are just a way of feeling apart of the group. There are 145 volunteers, now!! When I started 4 years ago there were only 60 of us. The Preserve is growing quickly, & beautifully!

On my hike before awards. The sky was SO pretty!!!! 65 degrees!

I had a bad morning. Hubby had some issues with breathing. Last year he had a stint put into his heart and a pulmonary embolism. I wanted to take him to the ER but he didn't feel it was that bad. This evening he is much better. He has a physical scheduled for Tuesday. I will see if he can make it until then before he has more issues. Otherwise, I will take him to the ER. I did get some laundry done today.

I agree with Pat! We all carry 'things' in our bodies & don't mess with them, if they aren't' harming anything. My DH just went through a VERY hard time. After many tests, yes he has kidney stones & gallbladder stones, but they aren't hurting him, so they stay! He pulled a back mussel at the site of his back surgery, years ago.

Cute cartoon! I use to drink so much carrot juice, my skin turned orange! I eat carrots now, not drink them! emoticon

Angela, I wonder if the fragment is causing you no discomfort, why it would need to be removed. Heavens, people carry foreign objects (bullets, screws, metal plates, shrapnel) lifelong in their bodies. I certainly would consult with more than one oral surgeon to see what the problem might become before undergoing surgery. As you can tell, I'm a proponent of leaving well enough alone.

Have a good weekend, everyone. Don't eat any yellow snow. emoticon Ours is all gone, thanks to a full day of rain.

So today I went to the dentist - found a new one here and he is really nice. He noticed a root fragment under a bridge I had put in years ago and wanted another x-ray of the area just to make sure all is okay. Well it is not. I am not sure what is wrong and I dont feel in any pain but he is referring me to an Oral Surgeon. Seems to me that I am starting to fall apart. LOL

Sun came out again today and I love it. Looking forward to a nice weekend

Have a great day

I've been enjoying watching the animals in the ravine. Had 3 young bucks leaping through this morning. Saw the cardinal pair for the first time in a while. We lost a fir tree where they enjoyed cover. Four young squirrels were chasing around one tree, probably establishing their territories with their siblings.

Hope everyone (or dog) who is ailing will get well soon. I've been putting up with a nagging cough, which I think is related to acid reflux. I take my med, but still cough.

Lots of bedding to wash today.

So I went to the doctor this morning and as I do not have a bladder infection he is now thinking maybe a stone. So I am getting a referral to a urologist. Not sure how long that will take but anything is better than how I feel.

It is above freezing today so some more melting is happening and my husband decided to shovel off the deck. I hope to get some grocery shopping done this evening.

Have a great day

We had sun today - yep sun. It was wonderful and I hope we get more tomorrow. and with the sun came some more melting. It will take a long time for it all to melt but at least it is a start. Now we just have to hope that we don't get more.

Not much else happening today so have a great day

1-22-2020 emoticon for your comment about our sweet LUCY, emoticon . She seems better today. She is 15 & having a hard time in hips. Not jumping on sofa or anything. She's not walking as far as she use to, either. Otherwise she is in very good health. I'm keeping her kinda of relaxed. Not pushing her. She use to be able to walk much farther than me, by miles. That has changed. We love her so much! emoticon I made us all turkey soup yesterday. I ALWAYS make a batch for her, no spices, no onions, no salt or pepper, etc. Bad for dogs. emoticon She loves it, too!

I have a lovely view of snowflakes from my window where I sit to Spark on line. I wonder where Aristotle experienced snow.

Nice dinner, nice fellowship. Good deal of reminiscing with people I've known probably 45 years. Laundry tomorrow.

Today I plan on getting a bit more organisation done. My husband has been going through boxes in the crawl space and has unpacked 10 boxes. He is looking for a document he has to attach to the OAS (Old Age Security) application he needs to get filled out as he is turning 65 this year. The form has to be filled out even if you dont qualify for the benefit. But because he has been emptying boxes I need to find out what to do with the stuff. I was hoping to do this more gradually but the document needs to be found and instead of just putting the box aside he unpacks it. Oh well it has to be done sooner or later.

It is snowing again today but very lightly so I am sure we will not get much accumulation. Some of it melted yesterday so that was good.



Have a great day

Well it is warmer today and supposed to be like this all week. However we are supposed to get more snow. Now I just wish we could get some sun. I am tired of the cloud coverage.

Going to the doctor today and then my husband and I are going to get sigh and chips for dinner. Not the best for losing weight but I make sure I don't eat too much.

Have a great day

Dale, what a humble husband you have!

It has been snowing off and on for a couple days. Flakes are drifting and dancing, moving slowly to add another layer to what we had from yesterday. This morning by the light of the crescent moon, diamonds shimmered in the snow. Road crews are keeping the streets clear and salted. This is what I like about winter in Ohio.

I had a routine cleaning at the dentist and the hygienist and I were reminiscing about shoving lots of layers into snow pants. Anyone my age remembers stuffing those crinoline petticoats into our snow pants from October to April. I quipped that we all looked like we were on our way to Weight Watchers.

Dinner guests tomorrow. Her lactose intolerance nixed the Lobster Newburg, so I bought pork tenderloin. She wanted me to make lobster for us, then make her another helping with her goat's milk. I don't think so. It's labor intensive anyway, and doing that twice? Nope. Easier to change the menu.

We didn't get snow but it was extremely cold today. We didn't make it to 20F. The temps are getting a bit warmer as the week goes on. I am doing laundry this evening. I should be caught up with that for a few days.

Dale - your hubby sounds like a very sweet man.

Walla - snow is so beautiful in photos. After a day or two in it, not so much.

Yvonne - I hope that you find a Zumba instructor in your area. I really like it because it is so much fun.

Pat - yes, I can imagine that your friend is having a rough winter.

I love Zumba, too. We've been in Missouri for five years now and I haven't done it since we lived in Texas. You all gave me the idea to see if I can find an instructor here.

Paid the bills, tidied the house and finished the book, but not the tree. DH brought in the bush lights and wreath before the big snow last night. My friend is Canadian and has an office in the States. Her weather is much worse and she never made it down this weekend. I have a two-week reprieve.

Angela - Zumba is so much fun. Of course, I really like the instructor. She is Spanish and very sweet.

Sparkling - I like the pic you shared. So pretty.

Audra - sorry that you have been sore due to Zumba. I do it once or twice a week and other exercise classes on other days.

I love Zumba! It's awesome. But I'm not in a habit of going yet so I'm sore for days at a time after I go.

It's cold here today. Highest temp I've seen today was 20 degrees. Supposed to get snow tomorrow. They're saying 2-5 inches... we'll see. The last time we were supposed to get snow it missed us here in the valley but for a coating.

We have to have our washing machine repaired. It decided that it won't stop filling. I get to clean all the clutter out of our basement now because it flooded it. It's a momentous job though and I'm not looking forward to it. On a similar note though, we've got a brand spanking new shop vac to help me do it.

Linda - I have always meant to try Zumba - is it fun?

It has warmed up today and we have not had any snow so things are looking up. I am hoping we will be good all weekend.

They could not find anything wrong with my car. So they just turned the engine light off and said if it comes back on just come on back. My car is a 2007 so getting older and my husband is calling this the idiot light. which basically means that it will cost us 170.00 every time the light comes on and there is nothing wrong. They did suggest that maybe it went on because the cars exhaust had too much oxygen in it - whatever the heck that means - or that it was so cold that the engine could not tell when it was warm. But they could not definitively say what the issue was. But at least I get my car back today.

For everyone in the storm paths please stay safe and warm

Have a great day

I went to my Zumba class this morning and had a great workout. We plan to go out to eat. My meal will be light. We expect some rain tonight and tomorrow. It is getting colder now too. Oh well, we had almost a month of warm weather.

Jan - great job cleaning out the refrigerator.

Pat - good for you helping your friend. Did you take down the tree? It is such a big job.

Angela - hope that you don't have a big problem with the car...it's always something.

Audra - good to see you.

My husband took my car in today to see why the engine light is on. Not sure if I will know today or if they will keep it overnight. I hate waiting for information.

It did snow a little bit overnight but it is getting milder out and we are supposed to see sun tomorrow - I am looking forward to that for sure. And it is snowing lightly again now.

Dog home - he had 3 more teeth pulled but is feeling much better

Not much else going on so Have a great day

Helped DIL and her mom take down decorations at the satellite church. Ate with them for lunch and headed up the road for a care meeting for Mom. Seems she got back into the habit of sleeping away her days when they were on a three-week lock down. No one was to leave his/her room. I cajoled her into taking a shower and washing her hair, which I then cut and styled. She was looking good when I took her down to Bingo.
Didn't manage to get home before DH arrived after his 5-day vacation in Florida. His trip (except food) was paid for. I made one of the Hello Fresh meals and spent the rest of the night nursing a cough. Took some nighttime cold medicine, which knocked me out till 9:30 this morning. Tried to watch a DVR, but kept falling back to sleep. The only thing I've accomplished is cleaning up the kitchen and running a load of laundry. It's a beautiful day, too. I should walk.

I had a good exercise class this morning. It is really gloomy out today. The past couple of days there has been a lot of fog in the morning. I am happy I don't have to go out very early, since I no longer am employed. I hate driving in those conditions.

Angela - so happy that your dog will be okay. Yes, the procedures will be expensive. But as you said, he is worth it. So sorry about your driveway. I know that you cannot wait until winter is over. I am wishing I could lose .5/week like you. emoticon

Our dog needs to have more teeth removed and he has a bladder infection so another expensive item but he is worth it. My husband took him to the vet this morning but could not get up the hill when he got home. The hill has not yet been sanded to is just ice. That means we have to walk down the hill to pick him up. I sure hope the hill is sanded by then.

I am slowly losing the weight - seems like about .5 pound per week but it has been consistent for a few weeks now. I just hope it keeps up.

Have a great day

I had a good workout today at the gym. Other than that I have not done much other than working and cleaning in the kitchen. It looks like our warm winter will turn into REAL winter over the weekend. Oh well, we have had lots of 50s and 60s so I cannot complain.

Angela - good luck at the vet with your dog. I hope that the lump is nothing serious.

Walla - love your meme.

Allthings - hope that you were able to get all of the decorations taken down. I know that it is a big job.

Pat - I hope that you are doing well this evening. It is so difficult to lose someone close to us.

Sparkling - beautiful photos. When I lived in Florida, I loved watching Egrets.

Still very cold here, however the furnace is fixed and the fireplace is fixed and we found a couple of space heaters so we should be good from now on. Turns out that our furnace drains water and the pipe was frozen - this was inside our house. The technician was very surprised but he raised where the pipe is so hopefully this will not happen again.

My husband is taking our other dog to the vet today as he has a bit of a cough and a lump on his hip that feels like it has fluid in it. Hopefully all is okay as I could not stand to lose another dog. He also has arthritis in his back end so maybe we can get some meds for that. It doesn't seem to bother him too much though just getting up but once he is up he is fine.

Have a great day

I'm undecorating today as well. I will be glad to get rid of the clutter but sad to see the season end.

I am getting tired of all the snow and cold.

My sister's husband's daughter came in on Friday for a visit as it was her dads birthday Saturday. Well that was one of the days that the snow started coming down really heavy and getting to the airport was very difficult for them. They were going to go to the legion Friday evening but the weather did not allow that.

Saturday was even worse and then Sunday - the wind started blowing the snow and the roads were all really bad. She was due to leave Sunday at 7:05pm but with the roads and snow and wind as bad as it was she wanted to get to the airport really early.

My husband walked down to the garbage and there were 4 cars at the bottom that could not get back up the hill. And when my husband walked back up he slipped and fell face first into the snow. He is okay but bruised.

So my sister called for a taxi and the daughter walked down the hill to the taxi when it arrived. The taxi driver said that the main roads were terrible and that he would drive very slowly to make sure she got to the airport safely. They arrived at the airport at 5pm.

Well then we learned that all flights were cancelled but instead of going to a local hotel (which her father was willing to book and pay for) she stayed in the airport overnight and managed to get on the 6am flight.

And then read my blog as our furnace died.

All I can say is holy cow what a winter.

Have a great day

It has turned colder here as well and they are predicting even colder temps toward the end of the week. DH will want to get right back on that plane when he flies back from Florida tomorrow night.

With climate change you'll probably find yourself in a good place! Not too hot, plenty of water.
But for now, keep warm! I've never experienced anything below about -4c. I cannot imagine it really.

It snowed again last night but it has stopped. The bad news is that we are going to get freezing cold temperatures and with the wind chill it will be -30C to -40C and -40 is the same in F or C. Supposed to only last 2 days though.

We braved the roads and got our groceries today so we are set to snuggle back in until the freeze is over. However then we are supposed to get 5 more days of snow. I think I made the wrong decision in moving here. LOL

Have a great day

I had a busy day. I decided to do a couple of loads of laundry this morning. I also cleaned the bathrooms and did a few other chores around the house. I am so glad that I did. If I start early in the morning, I actually accomplish things. Later I did get in some exercise. Now we are just enjoying a few shows on TV.

Yvonne - sounds like a lovely day - a nice tea party.

Pat it sounds like you had a nice tea party as well.

Angela - wow, sounds like quite a bit of snow that you are having.

Sparkling - I am so happy that you hubby felt well enough to eat dinner with you. I can just imagine how happy you were I hope that you enjoyed your walk.

emoticon 1-11-20 My life is starting to 'get back to normal' tiny bit, by bit! DH is trying to REALLY get better. He came down for dinner, yesterday. THAT is a big deal! First time in 19 days. I made us Pecan- cod & a large Salad. Yummy! Light & easy, but glad to have 'date' night with him. We also watched Young Sheldon. (miss the Big Bang Theory) He's resting today.
I'm going for a hike in my favorite Nature Preserve......soon! emoticon emoticon Happy Saturday, everyone!

I took this photo several years ago!

Sunrise at Nature Preserve, waiting to see the beavers! There are 82 of them there. REALLY unusual for this high desert!

Glad to hear hubby is on the mend, albeit slowly.
Yvonne, I hope my little tea party (5 of us) turns out as enjoyable as yours with your loved ones.
It drizzled all day yesterday and today I awoke to a full out downpour, but it has ceased. I hope the clouds pass and it gets brighter today.
Lots to do -- table to set (lay), chicken salad to assemble, quick trip to grocery, last minute tidying.

Pat
