    Good morning. We may get a shower today. Moisture is always welcome and met happily.
    Nothing really planned today. Up early because the pups wanted out. They’d better not make a habit of this…LOL.
    Sounds like they are ready to come back in. ;)
    Welcome home, Fred. Sorry about your toe.
    I’m going back to bed. Have a great day. KB

    Good damp and foggy morning. Love that there is no wind and it’s not too chilly out.
    Yesterday the phone rang and I was so surprised to hear Ken’s voice on the other end. His meds were still working and he was feeling much better. He wanted an “around the farm and puppy” report. LOL Evidently, he was feeling hungry, because Paula was gone to pick up some chicken.
    Nothing else new around here.
    Marcia, still having work done on the gown would make me a nervous wreck. Hope Sarah can stay calm. ;)
    Stewart, I love a happy post!
    Brenda, I put down a bath sheet, so it’s quite large. I let them in one at a time and tell them to sit on the towel. They believe they’re in for a treat, so they are happy to oblige. LOL
    Dave, nice picture! I sneaked a peek at your beach pics on FB last nite.
    Mary, glad you are better!
    Snow, work, work, work….ugh. LOL I found you on FB, too. ;)
    Sherry, thanks for adding me. Such great scenery and handsome family!
    Robbie, hope everything went well with the truck inspection.
    Tigsy, it’ll be nice to get the work week behind you! I still need to shop and wrap, also. UGH
    Pups want in. Better get off here. Have a nice day! KB

    Morning all! I almost missed the morning part. LOL It’s not cold, but drizzly and gray out. So glad the pups cooperated and wiped their feet on the towel before tracking all over. ;)
    Paula said Ken was very sick and the meds weren’t helping. They’re trying another and the dry heaves had subsided and he had fallen asleep. She’s hoping it will continue to work as it’s hard to look into his eyes that seem to be begging her to DO something. The business computer has been a help as she can occupy her time while he is asleep. Thank you for the continued prayers and positive thoughts!
    Stewart, I could accomplish so much more if I did like you and just got up and went to work when I can sleep!
    Sherry, I sent you a friend request. I hope that was ok.
    Marcia, Happy Birthday!!!! IF I lived closer, I’d make you some peanut butter fudge for your BD! I can almost feel the excitement crackling around you posts. Know it must be really intense in person! :) Enjoy your lunch with Sarah.
    Margba, I’m not finished either! Yikes
    Mary, glad you are improving.
    Dave, excited to see the pics.
    Snow, try not to work too hard! Hugs
    Robbie, LOL….shoulda, coulda, woulda!! Love it.
    Brenda, I would suggest you not work too hard, but have learned that is just follie! Thanks for the continued prayers!
    Looks like I have managed to fool away an entire morning. Better gear up for something productive this afternoon! Have a great day. KB

    PS: I am Kathy Gill on FB.

    Happy morning! A little nippy out, but I see signs of the sun below the horizon, so think it will be a nice day.
    Managed 2 more batches of peanut butter fudge yesterday. It only makes an 8X8 and doesn’t work well doubled. UGH I may make another today, but that is IT! I usually make 7 or 8 because it is their favorite and they are used to packing some “to go”. Just not in the mood this year.
    No other plans except laundry and that certainly isn’t news worthy or fun. LOL Have a great day! KB

    Hi Robbie! You sneaked right in on me. I hope the vet doesn’t get confused. LOL

    Good morning! Wow, I finally feel good! I still can’t smell a darn thing. LOL
    Bright sunshine out this am and the pooches are enjoying some yard time.
    Stewart, you sound quite chipper this a.m. I am in your place with the untended garden and yard. I sure hope I feel up to catching up by next summer.
    Dave, they had rain in our forecast yesterday, but it never showed.
    Marcia, that wedding is really inching up on ya’ll. Can’t wait for pictures!
    Sherry, so glad your projects are all coming together and can’t wait for pictures.
    Alberta, are the pies something you make ahead and freeze?
    Mary, hope you found some tempting specials in the ads! ;)
    Tigsy, good luck with the salad. I know it will be good!
    Margba, glad your wrists are better!
    Brenda, good luck and a “you go girl” for you and your downsizing! A PITB for sure, but so liberating when it’s done!!
    Snow, sounds like you are just running and working constantly. Stop and enjoy the blooms at some point! Hugs!!
    I should wind this up and get busy. I can see from here that both of the pup’s dishes are empty. Better get them filled before they come back inside. Also, need to go feed the horses today. I will take them some carrot snacks. Need to make a swing thru the house and make sure all is well. Church brought a Christmas basket for them yesterday. I will take out the fruit and put the rest in their freezer. This secretary/farm helper stuff is keeping me busy! Hehehe
    Have a great Monday! KB

    Good morning. Supposed to get a few showers today. Looks the same as the last few mornings to me. We shall see.
    Kelli said she’s coming for her pkgs and mail today. Will enjoy seeing her and am well enough I don’t feel like a “hazard”.
    Still lots of spiffing up around here to put things in order after being sick and slothful for so long. LOL
    Sherry, thank you so much for the prayers and good thoughts. I have not heard from Paula since the note saying they were starting the mean chemo. I assume she is busy helping care for Ken. They pretty much insist a family member stay in the room for the duration.
    Stewart, life just wouldn’t be much fun without something to look forward to!
    Pups are rattling their cage and I am ready for more coffee. Have a wonderful Lord’s Day! Kathy

    Good morning. Finally feeling like I’m getting the upper hand on this flu. UGH

    Ken gets the big, bad chemo today and transplant is still scheduled for Monday. Gonna be a rough time for them because the chemo makes him so sick.

    I’ve felt so bad and Ken being sick and them being gone has just shot what little Christmas spirit I had. I hope I can manage to get interested enough to at least get the kids something wrapped and under the tree.

    Wishing all a great weekend! Kathy

    Good morning. Hugs for anyone who needed them while I was gone.
    Had a super good weekend with the kids. Got nice gifts, of course.
    Paula has the flu and we aren’t sure what the drs. will say. I suspect they will hold off on the transplant for the 5 day incubation period before continuing. They both have had flu shots, but the strain going around(at least here)is not the one people are being vaccinated against. UGH I hope we don’t ALL end up with it. I feel fine, so far. He was to start tests this morning. I’m hoping she will call with a report soon.
    Sounds like the hustle and bustle has hit everyone. Hehehe
    Wishing you all a brilliant day! Kathy

    Good hurried morning. A gray, but warm day in store for us. Been so nice this week.
    Things are going so fast around here my head is spinning. I got rid of the vest. Dr. G said my heart has made some progress and he is so proud of me. Wow! It is wonderful to be free of that stinkin’ vest, but it felt like I might float away with and my back hurt something awful for a day from removing the heavy control box from that side. LOL Dr. Lexi said my A1C is 6.2 and she was hoping for a 7. Yeah!
    Sister found out yesterday that the insurance papers had made it to the hospital and they have to be at MD Anderson in Houston to start testing. Then the stem cell transplant will take place next Mon. It has jumped to warp speed because Ken has agreed to have another bone marrow test while awake. He doesn’t have to go thru all of the harvesting stuff this time as he has 4 million in reserve from last time. Yeah Also, dr. says he’s hoping this transplant won’t be quite as bad because the patients are usually in better health going in for the second.
    In addition, they plan to spend the weekend with Wesley and his parents so they can have early Christmas.
    I’m trying to help them get ready to leave and get myself packed to go with them for the weekend. I will go back again tonight.
    Anyway, that is where I am and what I am doing. I really do have to run. Tons still to do and arrange. Have a great day! See ya when I get back!! Kathy

    Good morning. Had the doors open all day yesterday because of the 72° and all shut up this morning because of the 18° windchill. LOL It is gray and ugly out with strong winds. I would really like to hibernate, but today is heart test day, so…..
    Snow, my nephew and his friend used to make deer jerky when they were in high school. They would make pounds of the stuff and then eat it in one day! LOL Enjoy your sausage!
    Stewart, perhaps you are feeling extra lonely after being with friends and loved ones.
    Sherry, hope it all goes smoothly!
    Have a great Monday! Kathy

    Good morning. It’s supposed to be 72° today. I must get out and enjoy as we’re headed back to cold later.
    Snow, yes I did and I enjoyed every single minute. I am the cream pie maker in my family, too, but my meringues fall after I take them out of the oven. Would you give me a lesson?!
    Enjoy your Lord’s Day! Kathy

    Marcia, we must have been typing at the same time. You have 2 of my least fav projects on tap today. Happy cleaning. LOL And I am still taking it easy to the point of useless. Hehehe
    Fred, hope the shopping venture was a good one. Have fun on your travels.
    Margba, your computer fix must be holding! ;)

    Good morning. Another beautiful day in the neighborhood. Yeah!!
    Thanksgiving was spectacular and a true blessing for me. As you can tell, I lived to tell the tale!! That is not to say I was not pooped. ;)
    Snow, I hope your second get together was as good as the first!! :) Also, did you finish with the outside decorations?
    Mary, I hope you get that sunshine at some point!
    Alberta, that is such wonderful news! What a blessing! I’m so glad for you.
    Tigsy, boo on the cold spell, but sounds like you are prepared. I hope your “mentor” takes the hint! ;)
    Brenda, wish you had some help with all those chores. However, I am in the same situation and know how hard it is to let things go. Things have certainly been going to the dogs around here since I’ve been virtually out of commission!
    Sherry, I wish I had new windows in the den. These are big and breezy. Safe travels for your son.
    Stewart, sounds like you are settling back in quite well in spite of the banking aggravation.
    Dave, I am in N. Texas between Wichita Falls and the Metroplex. Where does you sister live that she has apricots at this time of year? Wow!
    Need to get busy here. Have a great weekend and don’t get crushed by any crazy shoppers! Kathy
