    Hello to everyone who stops by..

    Its cold, rainy, and just plain nasty out here…. Very chilly with highs only in the 40′s….But next week its supposed to be in the 70′s….maybe Indian summer.

    I had water leaking out the bottom of my side by side freezer….. Pulled out the bottom basket and found solid ice on the bottom…. Well I got a flashlight and sure enough the drain hole was plugged…. so I cleaned that out with the hair dryer heating up all the ice… Now its all nice and cleaned out….

    We got our new bed delivered yesterday….and last night we slept pretty good…for the first night on it..

    I think I am going to like it.

    Also picked up the new small upright freezer on Wednesday and its all ready to get filled…. we have a freezer at the farm and want to bring some things out here so not so much running to get what we need……..especially with winter coming.

    We are going to stay out here at the lake… winterize the farm house, and shut off the heat….

    It so much cheaper out here, but I do miss my space…. the farm is so big….but for winter its not cheap to heat….

    Going too Menards when hubby gets home from work, then to Pizza Hut for supper….. I have a gift card so we can eat free  !!!!!!!.

    With hubby’s new job he needs a tool belt… He has so much to carry around now…. at his old job it was mainly electrical, now its both, electrical and maintenance….but so far so good…

    He said its more tiring that his old job….but he also said last night, that its good, because he can lose weight while he works  LOLOL.

    Well gonna get my shower, and  do some ebaying…..will be back later to see who is doing what,,,lol

    I am sorry to hear this…….. maybe some compromises are in order here…. Like his sleeping schedule… Maybe ask him to try to stay up  so he can sleep with you on the weekends?

    Its going to take getting used to………I do laundry, sweep everything I would  need to do when hubby is home……. since its the weekend he can nap…….. and so can you…………… just a thought.

    I do hope things get better…..

    Sending a big hug your way……

    Sorry to hear about the heater…but very glad its in an unfinished basement…….

    …must be the day for it…… the neighbors here at the lake, were packing up this morning…….and as we were talking, water was running out from under the bathroom floor.

    Apparently it has been leaking as the floor  is soaked and hooved up in the middle……….I guess they got their use out of it, as it was her mothers place since 1952….and she said she knows the heater is 40 years old……….. I guess they cant complain about that….

    I hope you find one on sale… our electric company puts them in now if you request it…….and then they put the cost onto the electric bill monthly until its paid for……. good way for some of those who cant afford to just run out and buy one…….

    Good luck…

    Good morning, just came in from leaf blowing…. I love the leaf blower my hubby got me a few years ago.  It sure saves raking…. I blew all the leaves into my flower bed…Thing is they arent my leaves…..The neighbor has 4 huge maple trees and we get all the leaves……….well he got some of them back as I blew them into his yard ….. they are wet so they wont go anywhere anyway… aren’t I mean?

    Filled all the feeders…. my goodness those birds are hungry… I had chickadees and titmice back this morning….

    Neighbors are up putting up their winter boards on their front porch….Its really neat how he did it… all they have to do is hang the boards, turn little knobs and its done…the boards stay in place…. all safe and snuggy for the winter…

    I was hoping they would be up a few more times, but the way the weather looks no one will be…….I did a load of laundry and hung it out……… some blankets…..

    have a load of towels in the dryer and getting ready to go to the local grocery as they have some great meat sales going on.

    Will be back later to check in … see how everyone is doing…

    What raise Posy?   LOLOLOL it wont buy a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk….They will just take it in Medicare costs anyway…..

    I hate to think what the costs of things will be in a few years… My friend whose husband does all the investing and watches all the inflation, says that in 5 years its going to double.  Inflation that is… He and is group of bankers and investors have watched this and said its going to happen….

    We will have to keep our internet for my selling on ebay to pay for keeping the internet….LOLOLOL
