hi Reed, not such a good night, more to worry about. today it is cold, I'm making bread. bg 102, a Reed-like number, lol, before lunch, very low cal taco salad made with turkey taco meat, yum. Funeral is next Saturday.
Oh my goodness, Reed, it's -11 here now. Horrible. I tried to fix my glasses last night and it was a miserable failure. I knew I'd be frustrated so was all hopped up at bedtime and it took awhile to calm down. Phooey. Have yourself a good weekend!
Trouble with your new mouse Reed...thought I send you a pic of this grass roots version!! Man...the weather has been so unpredictable here....from what I see it's up and down at your end too! Yesterday, we had rain, wind, fog and around 55F...snow pretty much gone. Today...a whole different story...20F...cold and blowing dry snow. I keep hoping for a snow day!! Costs of insurance is insane! I discovered too that come retirement...there is no dental coverage!! So will have to look for private coverage...another premium to pay!
What the heck is THAT all about?!! Geez...if there was ever a time when you DO need coverage, it's THEN, when your income is lesser. Sigh!!
My report cards are done and were handed in over a week before due date.
I just hope than there wont be any changes to be made after they get proofread. Soon enough will be parent teacher interviews...and at end of February, prepping for the French club at school. Yesterday I was on the computer after I came back from co-teaching a RCIC class at church (Right of Christian Initiation for Children)...almost to midnight, here at to for a bit...then looking for teaching material related to Groundhog Day....in French! Found some!! Gotta love the internet!! Gotta love my printer! I print one copy....and use it as my master to print the rest at school. There's a lice infestation at school....I'm keeping my distance from any kid scratching their heads. I went to pick Mason up early from school...not feeling well...poor little peanut, burning up with fever and feeling SO miserable! So he's not going to school tomorrow, that's for sure! We're getting Stephen for the weekend. He's 2 1/2 now!! He's a little sweetie! Looking forward to it. Speaking of hair appointment...I'm due! A trim and some highlights. The lady down the street from us does a superb job, out of her house, at a fraction of going prices. Well...tomorrow Friday!! I've been able to get a lot done at school, as all the grades 3, 4 and 5 are away for their 3 day Winter camp. Got lessons planned ahead, copies made, sorted out material and cleaned up supplies in my classroom!! In all my 11 years at the school, I have NEVER EVER found myself short of things to do!! So, have a great evening Reed...and an even better day tomorrow!
luv and baskets of hugs....linda
One puny degree here with -30 windchill. I did go to the store and was severely bundled up so it wasn't too bad except my glasses kept fogging up so I couldn't see where the ice was. They have a coffee area so I lingered there quite awhile before heading home. So thankful to have warm clothes and shelter. Seems like you guys are always getting haircuts. I guess that's to continue your reputation of looking dapper. Now I'm looking below and see that Pauly got his hair cut yesterday. Must be something in the air. I'm gonna go and turn my space heater on high and see who's on Dr. Phil.
hello Reed, we got plenty of rain last night here, it's in the 40s, so it washed away most of the snow. last night my aunt called and said my uncle passed away, he was under hospice care, and in bad shape, blind, bedridden, so it is a blessing. I called my mother this morning to tell her. of course, we are going to the funeral. their church is in Washington DC, right behind the Library of Congress. please say an extra prayer for us, really Reed, we need it.
Oh mercy, Reed, they are talking on the news about the tornadoes down south. Looks just terrible. We are having a wind chill advisory for the next couple of days. I have not tried to reassemble my glasses as it has to be on a day when I can concentrate and won't feel frustrated. My main computer started working this morning. Must have needed a rest.
I made this delicious cucumber salad to go with my chicken tonight - fat free sour cream, dill, chives and parsley. Madeit this morning so the flavors could blend - yummy.
aYes the Target that I go to has a grocery section. Not much for produce, but good deals on frozen stuff.
Hi Reed, How are you? We are having hot weather too, kind of crazy to have temperatures in the 70s here in January. I wonder what summer will be like? In Iraq it is getting so hot, way up to 127. I do believe in the global warming, I mean it is kind of obvious. I read something pretty bad about the BP oil spill. I guess all that oil will give off methane gas and that is way worse than carbon dioxide for the atmosphere. I hope we can get it together and start taking care of the planet. If we would just stop spending so much on wars we would have enough for the deficit, the infrastructure and some better health care. This government is getting awful. I heard that we are going to have both a gas tax and energy tax plus taxes on food. Enough already. I went to the stomach doctor today. They scheduled me for an endoscopy, colonoscopy and a stomach and liver ultrasound. She gave me Nexium and some good Probiotics. It was so late that by the time I drove to work it would be time to come home so I am home now. Today is very dark and grey. It looks like we might be in for some rain. I hope it holds off until after I take a walk and I don't want to go until after dinner. I am glad that you had a good time at TOPs today. How is Russ? I am having a great time with this new laptop. I like this Windows 8. Chris said that it has a touch screen and he is going to set it up for me. This screen is so huge compared to the other one. I feel like I am at the movie theatre. Pretty soon they will probably invent hologram computers. Things are This screen is so huge compare to my other one. I feel bad about your friend who got her purse stolen. I think that anyone who disrespects or hurts someone elderly should be put in jail forever. I cannot tolerate that or anyone hurting animals, or children. What are they thinking? I hope she is okay and they catch the guy. Take care. Your weather is really hot. Do you have to have the air conditioner on? Lots.
Hi Reed- I hope your TOPS meeting went well today. My ribs are feeling better, I am just keeping up with the pain pills and heat. We are having a "heat wave " today- going up to 60. But just for the day. I hope you and Russ are feeling OK. Chico really likes you and your house, cats can tell where they are liked. Hope you have a good day. Cat
hi Reed, sorry I was gone all day yesterday. we had to get started on the 2014 quilt at the guild. I'm really sorry I volunteered to head this up. I have my close friends there to lean on. we got almost all the cutting done with 4 of us working all day. we are going to be short of a few fabrics, so the gal living closest to the shop where we got it will go back today. Ed is doing ok, it's plenty warm here today, so we will take a nice walk. We pay over $1000/year for our homeowners, and we don't have a big house or live in an area prone to any disasters. didn't sleep well at all, woke up at 3 (bg 124) then 5 (bg 187) took a bolus but it didnt do much, heart pounding until 7 when I took another one. feeling nauseous and itchy and achey. bg was 168 before breakfast.
Hi Reed. I was so concerned when I read about Pauly's sister, as I had to go for my INR today. At noon it was up to 34 so I waited a couple hours more and everything had melted so it wasn't too bad. Then tonight on the news they were showing people falling as they were going to work and the county hospital had their ER overflowing with people who had broken something. Tomorrowit will start to ge3t cold so Im planning to stay in. My main computer is dead. I was talking to Apple support about another problem so the guy said to shut it off and then afterwards I could not turn it back on. I'm going to give it a rest and then try tomorrow. So I'm using an old laptop that still works.
Hope TOPS goes well tomorrow.
Hi Mr Gator, We are having freezing rain and I am not going out today. My sister just fell on ice and broke her wrist. I am cautious about falls, I use ICe Spikes when it gets like this but where i live they dont sand real good so I am homebound today.
Went too Bible study last night and had a good session
Hi Reed, Wow, it sounds like you are having a heat wave. I would be out in the sun if I were you working on my tan. Here it rained and all the snow already disappeared. That is probably the extent of our winter. I never did get a walk in the snow either because we did our hair on Saturday and shopped on Sunday afternoon. I was bad. I stopped at Wal-Mart for cat treats and toothpaste and ended up buying a laptop. Mine old one worked fine but I dropped it so many times it looked beat up and I lost all the fancy silver hinges so it was not looking pretty anymore. They were having a sale and I got an HP for a good price. It is so big compared to my other one. I feel like I am driving a Cadillac. The keyboard is nice, easier to type on with bigger keys. I like this, it is pretty, blue. I am glad you are feeling better. I was blah all day Saturday after that low at the hair place. Now I feel pretty good. I took a long walk after work and it is warm, didn't even need a hat or gloves. It is time for supper now. We are having salmon and veggies and it smells great. I am hungry. I was busy today and forgot to eat lunch. Have a nice night. I hope it doesn't get too windy for you. Maybe you should fly a kite. I haven't done that it a long time. It would be fun to do on the beach.
Hi Reed - a heat wave here today. I did not even have to wear my hat at the bus stop. Did a lot of shopping at Target and had intended to stop at the clinic on the way home, but my packages were cumbersome so I thought "heck, it can wait a day". At 6 pm the phone rings and it's a nurse asking why I didn't come in and I lied and said I just got back from out of town. She was really mean and of course I will go tomorrow. We may have moderate snow tomorrow with very cold temps on Thur and Friday so maybe I'll be housebound again for a couple days. Glad you got some good sleep.
It's time for Antiques Roadshow!
