    Mary, we are finding not a lot of insulation in the house….Dennis had done the attic when he moved in……it is blown insulated…….but we are finding none in the walls….just brick walls that they plastered over…….so now it will be much warmer in the winter and a lot cooler in the summer…

    Carol, great pics…….and I love your sideboard, and that is  a great idea for a shelf….. we had a huge shelf above ours too, but the water warped it……. its in the dumpster now… I do like your wallpaper………. we are not going to replace ours………going with warmer drywall…….and paint………new  moldings around the ceiling and floors to help with the look…..

    With hubby working second, I usually eat a big bowl of oatmeal and have some fresh fruit and yogurt…

    but I do cook for the rest of the week…..I try to make something he likes and can take for his supper/lunches…. We usually eat cheese toasties or oatmeal for our lunch…. what ever I cook I keep salad mix and fresh fruit to finish out a quick meal..

    It’s hard to cook when he doesnt want a big meal before going to work, but I want him to have a good supper…and I keep veggies ready too…… quick ones to microwave for him…. and me too…

    Good morning…. wow I love the snow Meme…and like Mary we havent had the kind of snow in years and years….

    I love the pictures….such a picturesque town.

    When we went to the antique shops on Saturday, I took some pics of Lennox birds……. they are so pretty…..but expensive….


    this is a pair of Goebel redbirds… Now I love these..

    and how many of you remember these?

    Our DIL’s kitchen is all done in red….. we took this picture to show her what we were going to get her for Christmas……….NOT..way to expensive, but thought she would get a kick out of it.

    Good morning, Posy, everyone… we have a wind advisory here until 8 pm… high winds up to 45 mph. Its really rattling everything outside..

    Poor birds are hanging on for dear life… I filled the feeders last night so they have lots to choose from this morning. 

    Neighbor ladies are back from Florida…They had a wonderful time but said they wont go again.. It was a gift from their nephews… the one lady is 89 and the other is 82 …. said it was too much on them.. but they did enjoy it…Their cat was so happy to see them….. Of course I hadnt told them about our farm, as I knew they would worry it would be too much to take care of their cat and mail… So I told them last night… They just hugged me, and are going over with us one day this week so they can see it..

    Got to get busy here….. I havent done much for the past couple of days as we worked at the farm.. I think since its so windy and gray and yucky out, I will just go back to bed  LOLOL

    Well be back later to see who stopped by..

    Posy hope you dont work too hard LOLOL

    We just got a new mattress a couple months ago… We went back to the regular coils, but they are filled with a gel……and then it has a gel top over it…….. it is nice….. we really like it………. it can’t be flipped but I do turn it… we looked at the older style mattresses that can be flipped and were disappointed to discover they arent made that well……and not the nice thickness as the new ones…

    You will have to try them out to see what you like……..

    So sorry you are going through this…but very happy that your hubby and you have stayed this close to them……….that is something to be very proud of……. because most step-families arent like that…..

    We went to the farm today to get some of the wet stuff out of the basement…… we got some of the knobs off the old buffet/sideboard………..

    I was in that wet basement for 2 hours… in and out, up and down,  shouldnt have stayed that long…but we got to working and didnt want to stop…I bet my allergiest is going to love me on Thursday when I go back… still coughing, can’t stop clearing my throat…. nose running……….great….. but it had to be done in the corner under all the plumbing from upstairs……… and I could see right through the dining room floor….. kind of weird….

    they have 5 huge dryers going in the house……… and the new furnace is going too…..so should get some drying done here soon…..

    Oh and we found the lighting fixture at Menards….. first one I looked at, showed hubby, he said thats it…….. so…. so far one down, tons to go…

    Hi all… just back from the farm… we filled a dumpster….. Dennis and I worked for just 2 hours and we got maybe a third of the basement into the dumpster, got pictures of what the water ruined, and just got rid of stuff we had been wanting to throw away anyway…

    Wow what a mess… the basement floor is so wet you have to be careful walking… lost a bit more Christmas but thankfully I had 9 big  plastic totes that were all sealed and nothing got ruined. We did lose our 3 Christmas trees . When we were known as the Christmas house I had 6 trees up… all decorated differently… well the trees are gone….the water just laid on them in the basement… as we had them up on pallets but the water was too much ..

    Oh well……. onward and upward… will get a new tree this year………just one !!!!  lolol

    Glad hubby went as he threw away stuff I wasnt sure of… but since it was his I am glad he was the one pitching

    Went in to Arby’s and got fish sandwiches, and a chocolate shake… I told hubby I was pooped out… we only worked 2 hours but hauling all the stuff up the basement steps and then into the dumpster wore us out…

    Very overcast, and gray here….. supposed to have temps rise all day then rain over night, then back to snow tomorrow………… weird weird weather.

    To everyone who are in the way of this next big storm…stay in and stay safe…

    and to those who are digging out…….. stay safe and don’t shovel…

    Hi there, welcome from Northeastern Indiana……and I feed my jays away from the other feeders…. in-shell and shelled peanuts…. of course the tufted titmic, chickadees, cardinals, and woodpeckers all love the peanuts….. the blue  jays are pigs, but the other birds will get their share…..I love them all, and feed them all.

    Just put another feeder away from your main feeders….thats should help…
