    Good Morning,  It is 27 and overcast today.  Lots of gloom for today looking outside.  I have all the lights on trying to keep my spirits up.  Now if there was just something to work on my ambition.  I didn’t sleep well last night.  Just before I went to bed I took my diabetes pills.  One went into the hole where I just had the tooth pulled.  I didn’t feel it and just when I got into bed I had this awful taste in my mouth followed by foam.  Before I could get my mouth rinsed out I ended up throwing up.  After that it took a while to get to sleep and when I did it was time for Tim to get up for work.  I usually don’t hear him but I guess I wasn’t in a deep sleep.  I’m taking it easy today.  Like Jan I should do some laundry but it can wait.  Jan, pick up a lotto ticket for me too.  Must be your lucky day.  good to hear from you again.  Well, I’m going to lay down for a little while.  I’ll be back later.  Have a good day/  Lair

    Good Morning everyone,  It is 27 and overcast here in Iowa this morning.  I am here everyday but I just read and rarely post.  I am not sure why but I got the feeling most people skip over my post so I mostly post on Midwest these days.  Have a good day.  Lair

    Good Morning, not much going on at my house but I did want to mention to Kathy about her sewer lines.  14 years ago they told me the same things about tree roots but suggested a drain cleaner I could use.  Can’t remember the name right now but I get it at Ace.  You put a cup down the drain every month and it burns the tree roots and keeps them from growing.  It isn’t expensive and (knock on wood) it has worked for me.  Worth a try if you can keep them at bay for a few years.  Have a good day everyone!  Lair

    Good Morning again,

    Looks like everyone is real busy today.  It is 24* and overcast here today.  We did have a few hours of sun yesterday, sure was nice to see the sun again.  Not much to talk about yesterday.  I am thinking the highlight was my sister’s call telling me she had been released by her Doctor and no chemo.  Best news in a long time.  Today I’m not sure what will be happening.  Tim is off to his job so I don’t have anything to complain about till he gets home.  Guess I’ll drag out the Christmas cards  since I can’t put them off much longer.  I don’t have that many to send.  Almost everyone on my list of 10 years ago is gone now so it is mostly just family.  Not much more to say now but I may be back when others have been around.  Have a good day!  Lair

    Hey there I’m back.  My little kitten is having a stomach problem this morning.  He ate but threw up soon after.  Well, he just now got on my desk and was trying to get under my fingers for some pets.  That didn’t work so he tried to get under my shirt collar to curl up.  I got off the computer and held him.  He purred himself to sleep.  I hope he feels better when he wakes up.  Not much planned for today except I told Tim I would cut his hair this morning.  I guess just pick up the house after that.  Maybe ZI’ll fix a good dinner this evening.  You all have a good day.  Lair

    Good Morning, it is 20* and there is a bright light in the sky.  They say it is a sun and to not look at it without eye protection.  Didn’t do much yesterday but what I did turned out to be important.  I had some trouble with my car the last couple times I drove it.  Not trouble but when I took my keys out of the ignition and opened the door the thing would chime like I had left the keys in.  Well, yesterday I googled recalls for Saturn and found out it has been recalled for ignition problems. The problem is a tumbler in the switch wares down and at some point when you turn the key it just turns all the way around and nothing happens.  Well, I call the dealer and they said they would fix it for free.  They will call me when the part comes in.  No trip to my sisters until that is fixed.  I’ll be back in a minute.  I have a cat that needs my lovin.  Lair

    Charlene,I’m thinking of you and Larry tonight.  So sad to have to lose your special  friend.  I was doing good until I saw her picture.  You have had her so long it will leave an empty spot around the house.  Lair

    Good Morning, it is 20* and overcast today.  Only going to a high of 26 today so will be cooler than the past few days.  I will do a few more chores around the house but nothing note worthy.  I did talk to Charlene and my go up to see her next week.  Have to see how I feel the rest of this week.  I am going to check out my oxygen tubes this morning because I feel there is a leak I’m not finding.  My cat was fine yesterday so I will continue to watch him but I think he is OK.   I have been waiting for a sunny day to go down and work in the Greenhouse but I will check it out today and look for any bugs or flies trying to set up home there.  Carol, I hope you like your new cut.  I cut mine shorter last week, I still feel like a picked chicken but Tim says it looks fine.  I usually don’t believe him and this time is no different.  He just says that hoping it will shut me up. One time I cut one half and he said it looked just fine so that’s why I don’t trust him.  It will grow.  Wow, we have just had a crack in a cloud and some sun slipped threw.  I was blinded and couldn’t see anything for a moment but all is back to dreary now.  I should get moving, You all have a good day.  Lair

    Good Morning, it is overcast and foggy with the temp right at 32* right now.  I’m not sure but I think this is the high for the day.  I had a good night sleep but feel sort of low this morning.  I think I just need some sun. All the news doesn’t help with my mood either.  Seems like they scour the globe and only report the bad stuff.  Tim is off to work this morning at his carpenter job.  They are replacing windows and door today so he said it will be a long day.  Seems like those replacement jobs are tricky and take a lot of time.  Myself, I’m turning on a lot of lights and going to clean. I started vacuuming yesterday but hurt my stomach and had to give it up but today is better.  I have to keep my eye on one of the cats.  He may have a infection and can’t pee right.  He had this problem before had had surgery for it a couple years ago.  I’m hoping he is OK.  Don’t need another bill right now.  I had been thinking of going to my sisters this week but she is so busy until Christmas and I’m not feeling so great so I guess it will wait until after the first.  

    Well, I hope you all have a good day.  Lair

    I have 3 Olympus cameras.  Two are mine and one is my roommates.  I like them and they are not expensive and use regular batteries.  My newest one is my least favorite.  It has all the bells and whistles.  Takes several steps to take a picture so nothing spontaneous there. I also has a large screen to view what you are photographing.  I thought that would be good but it turns out not to be.  When you hold it out and frame what you want it is great but then you push the button the camera moves just a little, just enough to put a little blur on the picture.  I prefer the old one you can hold up to your eye and that keeps it steady.  All three have great zoom features but I don’t use it that much for my flowers and garden.  that is about all I can ad but I hoep it helps.  Lair

    Good Morning, it is 46* and raining this morning.  We are to be getting the rain all day and most of tomorrow.  They say 1 inch or more by the time it is done.  I just read Snow’s post and am exhausted.  Reminds me of me before all my parts gave out.  Snow, I hope your’s hold up better than mine did.  Yesterday came and went with nothing being worth note worthy.  ………. yep, I just thought over and came up with nothing. Today when I fed the cats I came back into the kitchen carrying a package and gave it to Tim. He was sipping a cup of coffee looking so sad in his summer bathrobe with a sweater over it.  He opened the package to find a new plush bathrobe.  It is one of those microfibers so it is thick and still light weight.  Burgundy and black stripes with a small white stripe between the dark colors.  He is just beaming now, I guess I did good picking it out.  

    Today I am going to work on cleaning the house a little.  No Christmas tree this year for us.  There was some talk of us having a Christmas party for the guys at Tim’s work but there isn’t a time to have it.  When the other guys are off Tim works and when Tim is off they work so we couldn’t have it on weekends or during the week.I did put out a couple ornaments and the kitty left them alone for 3-4 seconds.  I have not seen them since.  

    Well I need to get moving, look out dust!  you all have a good day.  Lair
