    Good Morning all..we got about 2″ of snow and they didn’t even close the schools!  The wind is wicked but that is ok. I know all we heard about for days was the “storm of the century” in NYC. Melissa I feel sorry for anyone with a family that has to pay the grocery bills. It is bad enough for just myself! Last week I picked up a package of hamburger…1# OVER 5.00!!! Needless to say it is still there! So I am living on a diet of chicken these days…probably healthier anyway.  Actually I kinda like chicken chili! I hope the chicken farmers don’t decide to get on the high price bandwagon. I need to fill my gas tank again I don’t know if the price is still low or if that is going up again. I do know the price of propane is way up this year!

    I don’t know what I might get done today…I have to get to the post office and the grocery store…I seem to spend a lot of time in that place.

    I will keep everyone in my prayers today, especially those in the hospital and those with challenges in their lives.

    I spent the morning at the doctor’s office, the official report is…I am going to live! No change since last year except for the eyes and they are being dealt with. Cold outside today so other than checking the heat in the greenhouse and feeding the birds I didn’t do much outside. Come to think of it I didn’t do much inside either, took a little nap!  If you listen to some of our local stations we are going to either get nothing, a major snow storm or anything in between. Whatever we get we can’t do a thing about it. I do think the poor people in NYC are in for a big mess. I remember once when I still lived in Upstate NY that they had to load snow on barges and take them south to dump because they were out of room there. I am going to either watch something on tv or do some paper work. I got a new shredder for Christmas and I need to use that to get rid of a lot of old paperwork.

    I just had a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. DD and I had some of the spaghetti dinner that they brought me from church yesterday for lunch and there is still enough left for lunch tomorrow!

    Good Morning Larry and all… Other than my slow dino puter things look like they are back to normal again…so nice to have Jill on our side! I have an appointment for my annual physical this morning, this afternoon it is supposed to start getting nasty here…of course that *S* word gets everyone headed to the grocery store…the things they buy are funny, bread, milk, toilet paper and baloney??? Don’t they keep most of that normally?

    I guess I had better hit the shower and get ready to go.  Have a great day everyone.

    No they didn’t stay for dinner, each one had part of the meal in their hands. There is enough for at least 3 meals there…I didn’t tell them that I had just eaten the last of my leftover spaghetti…I will enjoy theirs for a few days! I do feel great knowing they thought of me…our new pastor also announced today that he had decided not to retire this year and will stay at least one more year with us. We were all so grateful for that after the mess we had before. I have a new problem, I can’t find my &^(^)*%^% cell phone. Someone keeps calling me and it sounds like it is somewhere around this desk but I can’t find it. I looked all over even moved the desk out and all that was there was dust! By now must be the battery is dead because they have quit calling.

    I have a few “mystery seeds” myself, the labels fell out of the cups and I don’t have a clue what they are now…anyone want some mystery seeds?

    Jill unlike most of the people I had a problem getting here just now…it took three tries before I could get on. I haven’t been here since early this morning so I didn’t know there were problems. I appreciate having you keeping an eye on us…it means a lot to have someone on our side:)

    Gayle is right about the timing! Unfortunately my ground cover rose got cut back this week so the plumber could get to the septic pump. But it really did need that, the rest is going to be done as soon as our last frost date.

    Good Morning Larry and all…Larry when you don’t have enough to do at home you can come here for a week or two, there is plenty to do here:) It is looking like we may get some kind of weather today, the sky is RED! I have refreshments at church this morning so I need to get the biscuits made for the ham biscuits and the rest is all ready to go over. After that there is some laundry to be done, I don’t know how one person can dirty as many clothes as I do! I will put some warm ham biscuits on the table here for anyone who wants something with their coffee this morning. Have a wonderful day everyone and keep all who need them in our prayers today.

    Charlie and all who follow…I did a lot of cleaning myself today. I just got all of the things I can do ahead for refreshments at church tomorrow.  Baked a cake and cleaned veggies and made the dip for them, got the fruits washed and ready too.  In the morning I will make the biscuits for ham biscuits..I like to have them good and fresh. It rained most of the day but it is clearing off now and probably will get cold tonight. As soon as I have some supper (re-runs from last night) I will see what I can find on tv that isn’t a rerun.

    Good Morning all, I woke up and it was still raining so I turned over and went back to sleep! Now to get myself awake enough to get something done inside today. I feel badly for everyone having to deal with family problems these days. There is never an easy answer to this, just do the best you can.  They are predicting some snow for us tomorrow  but that can change before then. I have a few seeds I should be starting today other than that I am not sure what might get done…but for sure there is never a time that something isn’t needing help around here. Have a wonderful day everyone…I made a stuffed devils’ food pound cake for church tomorrow and made one for you to enjoy with your drinks this morning.

    I had a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. Had a big lunch so didn’t need much tonight. I will probably have some milk and cookies later.

    I tried that one year in hanging plants…it was hard to tell when it was time to water again so I either got them too wet or they dried out so much they had trouble recovering from that. I still like my good ole Pro Mix for baskets!

    Good Morning all…it is cloudy here and going to rain later today and tonight. I don’t know what I might get done today but there is no end of things that need to be done. I laid in bed for awhile to try to figure out what needed help most and got so tired I had to get up. I do know I need to get to the store and get what I need for refreshments at church on Sunday, but I haven’t quite decided what I will do yet. First things first I need to get some coffee into my system so I can figure out what is next! :) Have a wonderful day everyone!
