    Good morning. I’m dragging this a.m. Just could NOT get my eyes interested in sleep. A small nap after 4:30. Geeze, I hate those times.
    At some point today, I need to check with my sister on when we have to leave in the morning. Think it’s about a 2 hr. drive to the hospital where my brother is having his surgery. So glad for him it is only one more day…he’s been in such awful pain for soooo long.
    Must dash! Enjoy this day the Lord has given us!

    Good morning. The sun came up earlier, but has disappeared. :( Might get more storms and rain. It rained all late afternoon and night already. Wish I’d had my new rain gauge up.
    Been up since 6 cooking for a funeral luncheon. Baked a nice chicken, but the skin fell off when I took it out, so it looks ugly. Maybe it will taste better than it looks. LOL Have everything packed in the carrier and ready to roll. So, glad I thought of using that thing and not having to carry and likely spill all over me…klutz that I am. First time since heart attack I will try staying and helping. Hope I’m not just in the way!
    So many interruptions yesterday I didn’t really get very far on the triangle. Finding plenty to be pitched in the burn pile. :) You should have seen me trying to navigate down the hall to get a jacket from my closet last night. Why do I do this to myself? At least it was contained in one room before I started “organizing”!
    Better get out of here if I’m going to be there by 11.
    Have a good day and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVE!

    I hit the page button on my phone and it was beeping inside my frig!

    I was telling my dad about what I’d done and I asked if he’d ever done anything weird like that. His answer…”Yes, but I didn’t tell anybody!” LOL

    Good morning all! It is raining here, so I’ve got the washer going and have actually been working in my bermuda triangle. I figure if I drag all of the “stuff” out in the hall and block off bathroom access, I will be forced to deal with putting it back in an orderly fashion. However, you can see I am here yakking instead of continuation. Ha!
    Mary, don’t recall if I’ve ever seen a dogwood in bloom…in person.
    Marge, hope you don’t get that last frost. I never expect one after Easter.
    Marcia, sounds productive all around…from mulch to shoes!
    Dave, I know you are excited. Are you taking your camera? Do they have demonstrations … like how the old machines used to work? They do at shows around here.
    Leroy, tarpons do more damage for me than rabbits! I have to cover, also.
    Brenda, I have no doubt that you will “git er done”! I finally unloaded and moved all of those bags of potting soil yesterday. That old green lawn tractor and little red wagon sure did work well together! :) BTW, she assured me it would not bother my heart BEFORE she started AND she said men hate the test the most! ;)
    Sherry, it warmed up here yesterday afternoon and I just sat down on my butt and pulled weeds for a couple hours. The sun felt wonderful warming my back.
    Stewart, good luck with the organizing. Same thing happening here….IF, I get back at it soon.
    Have a great day, all!

    Good day. ;) Slept 8:30 this morning. Sure was nice. Guess I was a little pooped from going to dr. yesterday and then mowing front yard when I got home. It’s finally warmed up enough to go finish this afternoon. I bought weed eater string. My little man didn’t show up over the weekend so I suppose I will try it on my own. I’m not looking forward to it or even feeling optimistic.
    My gosh, that nerve test is not something I would ever look forward to repeating. They measured, marked and put leads all over my hands, arms, legs and feet. Then they would zap me with electric thing that looked like one of those taser things. Sometimes it was painful, but mostly it just would scare me and make things jump. THEN the doctor came in and he stuck pins all over me like that. Arms didn’t hurt, but the ones on the insides of my legs sure did. I told them to never share a secret, because I would blab for sure if hooked up to one of those things again! LOL However, I’m glad I went because all of the news was good. He even bragged on my muscle tone which seems totally gone to me.
    Need to get busy and finish the yard. Have updates on one of my websites come in so need to get to that. Have to keep the customer happy. :)
    Robbie, I’ve been missing you. Glad to know all is well!
    Have a great Thursday afternoon, all!

    Good almost afternoon. Another chilly, gray day that started with rain. I need the sun to return to my life!
    Teresa called yesterday to see if I could stay with her mom this afternoon while she takes her dad to the dr. I was afraid I am/would be contagious with this nasty cold. I hope she found someone as I know her mom will be fearful if left alone….even in the facility.
    Bought a couple of “spotlights” to shine on the front steps. One didn’t even make it the first day without disappearing. Happened to remember the neighbor’s pups were loose and sure enough, she said she had it at her house. I’m just wondering what shape it will be in when it’s returned. LOL
    My brother will be having his surgery on Fri. I hope I am “well” by then. My sister and I are going down to sit with them so Anna won’t be alone waiting.
    LeAnn, I’m glad to hear you mom is responding to treatment. Prayers continue.
    Have a good afternoon, all! KB

    Awe…nothing like a good nap to make the world seem right. It’s actually chilly enough in here that I have considered one more fire before I put it to bed for the summer.
    Stewart, you are busy bees. Things must really be taking shape.
    Sherry, so glad to hear you were able to work in the gardens. Seems like you are always the last to get to play in the dirt.
    Dave, seems we can only be outside between showers. It’s been so many years since we’ve had rain, I’d forgotten what it was like to have spring showers!
    Marcia, I am on board with the laundry and took out my trash a bit ago. Exercise….we’ll see what this nerve dr. says on Wed. I have a new treadmill all picked out and ready to order if he approves.
    Leroy, don’t work too hard.
    Mary. hope you got to have the picnic.
    Marge, glad you are having nice weather.
    Fred, seems like the whole country is on a roller coaster weather trail.
    Tigsy, hope the people from the tornado are getting help to get back to living.
    Belle, some sun is always a welcome sight in one’s day.
    Snow, did you get all the laundry toted and fetched? I miss having clotheslines.
    Brenda, I bet you were doing some laundry tote and fetch yourself! You and Snow are the busiest people I know!! ;)
    Robbie, I miss you.
    Ok, maybe I don’t need a fire, but I’m going to turn on heat of some kind. I’m cold!
    Later, KB

    Good morning. It is gray and spitting rain and stormy this morning, but still nice with the door open window a bit up in storm door. Just the slightest breeze that coaxes the new wind chimes into the sweetest, soft tune of merriment. Life is good!
    Was talking on phone and not paying attention earlier and took my night time meds. UGH How dumb can one old woman get?! I called the heart clinic. They said I might have episode of blood pressure hitting bottom and if so, call 911. I told her I would likely sleep thru any trauma because I am fighting a cold and had a benedril in each cup. LOL Anyway, she thinks I will be fine and I do, too. No more multitasking for me…I just can’t think that well anymore.
    Sure missing Wesley. He just makes the whole world a better place for me. We trimmed the tree over my patio his last day and I could not believe the pile that little 4 yr. old had when we were finished. I underestimated his abilities greatly!
    I have cleared out the heavy winter clothes out this morning. One more load of laundry and I’ll be done…..for a little while, at least. LOL
    Getting kind of drowsy, so I’m gonna see if another cuppa will make a difference. If not, I suppose I will be snoring most of the day. ;)

    Good morning and happy day! Wesley and I hooked up the little red wagon to ol green yesterday and put her through the paces. Luckily, we found 3 nice mud holes. I could hear his giggles over the roar of the engine!
    We might be outside most of the day today. The doors are still open from yesterday and wind chimes are playing a sweet melody. It will be a nice day for diggin in the dirt, I think.
    Sorry for those craving warm spring and still feeling frosty. It was a chilly Easter here and I missed the warmth.
    LeAnn, travel safe and I’m glad your mom is on the road to recovery.
    Marcia, I hope the deer fence works. They are pretty hard to discourage when they get used to coming.
    Sherry, glad your weather has taken a turn for the better. Wow, one project after another! ;)
    Stewart, Dave, Leroy, Fred, Brenda, Snow, Margba, Alberta, Mary, Tigsy and ALL…have a great day! KB

    Mine have been here for about 2 weeks or little more. Just singles, so far.

    Happy Easter morning! It’s chilly and WET. It stormed from 3 am until after 8. Lots of thunder and lightening but if there was anything damaging, I slept thru that part. LOL No sun here today and I won’t be wearing my new capri pants. I didn’t get to play on the mower anymore yesterday, as I went over to help Paula get set up. My brother came by to bring tables and chairs, so we just ordered pizza and had a party. We don’t do that very often and it was fun.
    Sammie and I came over to get some things I forgot and here comes my old, green mower down the street. John already has it running like a top(wish I’d called him before I bought the new one)and the deck off. Now I’ll be shopping for a garden cart. He said it was going to make me a nice wheelchair. Hehehe Now, I just need a project!!
    Brady showed me how to load my new BB pistol(it’s CO2)and sighted my little rifle. Now those dang squirrels better look out! ;)
    Marcia, I don’t think it was the mowing that caused my little flitter. I forget I canNOT hurry anymore, so when I do, it’s never good. Only lasted about 20 minutes.
    Time is just running so fast this morning. I have to go NOW! LOL
    Hope your day is filled with The Lord, family and fun! KB

    Good morning! It’s chilly again today and supposed to rain Easter morning. I’m off to help my sister with whatever I can. As usual, the party grows. I believe she said we are now at 30+.
    John got my mower back to running yesterday. It was, as I feared, our fault for not draining the old gas out. But he has her back purring like a kitten. I made 3 rounds of happiness before I had a visitor who ended up staying until after 10:30 last nite. I was quite winded when we came in the house, but lots happened in a really short time and I may have rushed(which brings me down every time). I’m not saying I will be able to mow for sure until it’s just me and mower uninterrupted. ;)
    Have a wonderful and blessed Easter everyone! KB

    Good morning. Very pleasant here, except the winds are blowing already. Here comes the sun! Wesley was due in overnight, so I’d better get ready for the invasion or the trip over to invade his territory. Hehehe
    Brenda, my friend has one that has the most beautiful, deep tones I’ve ever heard. I sure won’t ever have one because her DH paid over $300 to have it made for her birthday. Yikes!!
    Have a great day! KB

    Good morning! It’s already a nice day and we’ve barely scratched the surface! Woohoo!!
    I had planned to go over and do a few things at my sister’s while they are gone to Houston, but had that unexpected MRI yesterday and supposed to hang around for results today. I think she’s going to need lots of help to be gone thru today, work tomorrow and get ready for our huge family Easter lunch and hunt on Sunday. Oh well, plenty to do here for the day.
    Sherry, your story reminded me…one of the kids saw the Absorbine Jr and ask what it was, so I explained for muscles. I put a little dot on his hand and had him sniff. He said it smelled like heart medicine. Heart medicine?? You know, when you’re sick and you put medicine on your heart. I’m like…do you mean Vick’s? Yes!! LMBO
    Robbie, I’m always up for a “nothing to do day” since I got old and lazy! Enjoy…cause it will probably be back to hurry up/rush tomorrow!!
    Stewart, ya’ll are sure working hard.
    Dave, I need to get my tomatoes and peppers in the ground today.
    Snow, I’m sorry you are still sick. I sure know what you mean about it hanging on and on! Maybe the better weather will let you get on top of it soon!!
    Marcia, when I’m sitting in my chair, I feel great and make tons of plans. It’s when I get up that things go south. ;)
    Alberta, Mary and Leroy, good to “see”you this morning.
    Brenda, I need to do the same thing. I just hope I can still come up to the mark! I seem to be awfully wimpy lately. LOL
    I am a bit of a wind chime-aholic. Texas winds just destroy them, so I get a new one every spring. My neighbor commented on the beautiful tone of this new one and I agree. My doors are open and it’s playing a sweet tune for me as I type.
    Need to order a new pump for the birdbath. Don’t mind getting it, but lifting all of those heavy pieces to install it is another story.
    Ok, I’ve gone to rambling. Time to shut up and get busy! Have a great day! KB
