Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. Russ's cold seems to be better. Tom is here and caters to him. Right now Tom is at the Gym. I have a pot roast going in my slow cooker. I have only used it 2 times before. The food comes out great so I am going to use it more. BG 110. Did you have a good night? I hope your Readings were good and not all over the place. I doubt we will wait to see the ball drop as tomorrow is a Holy Day of Obligation and we will go to the 9AM Mass. How is Ed give him my best. How much snow did you get? I bet it was pretty around the lake. Happy New year to you and ED. I hope the year 2013 will be a good year for us all. HUGS,POPS

Thanks for the spice link Marie. I am starting to make my own rubs and need a good source for bulk spices. All the various peppers are intriguing. My late wife was a New Mexican cooking aficionado and we used to special order various varieties of chilies and grow them in our garden. Have a wonderful new year!

It's your anniversary?? Well....

At 11:04am on December 29, 2012, Linda G said… worries! Just buy 2 packages of frozen ready to go pie pastry. I think there's 2 per pack. Use one shell for the top pastry. You'll need 2 packages, as the store bought kind is a smaller pie.

Good Morning,Marie. I was having a wonderful sleep when WHAM thunder and heavy,heavy rain. Tom did not run too miserable. But I was good I gave him his lumberjack breakfast any way. BG 112 high for me candy. I hope you had a good night and your Readings were good. Glad Kathy home. Do not like to hear she has to be on COUMADAN. They changed Russ's nose procedure to Thursday. Then the time. Now it is at 11. He will be so happy to get that over with. Going grocery shopping soon. Tom will be here longer so have to plan my menu. Did you get much snow? Some places did. The visitors who were going to drop in decided not to. Glad I did not plan anything. Give my best to Ed and enjoy the day. HUGS,Reed

I had a very very wonderful Christmas day Marie. Thank you so much for the hugs...needed that :) I miss tiny feet going around the house...Somehow sometimes I thought I still feel her around too. Sigh...oh well... I still got her a toy and marshmallows treats for Christmas.
How was your holidays? How is dear Ed? You guys didnt have any problems with blood sugar, now did you? Ooooh! Food is so hard to resist these season! My husband I are leaving headed for south today...will be back on the 30th. I still have internet access, thanks to my geek hubby.

Marie- I read somewhere that today is your and Ed's anniversary. Congrats on 26 years. Are you doing anything today ? How much snow do you have? Our flurries are turning to rain by tonight. I hope you had a nice Christmas. We just spent a quiet day catching up on paperwork for the end of the year. Any plans for New Years ? We are just going over to a friends house for the evening. Take care of yourself. Cat

Hello Marie. You had quite a day. I would faint with a Reading like that. Now a cut finger. You better lie down. Russ is snoring. I will be so glad when that reconstruction of his nose is done so he can sleep on his right side and get beyond 2AM. We are expectin g thunderstorms, We are heading for the barber shop and hope no one else has the same idea. Then we will head for Gainesville. It takes an hour and a half to get there. Happy Congrats on your 26th. Chico spent 7 hours with us yesterday. I think he likes our company. Take care. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. Christmas has come and gone. Now comes taking down all the decorations. Lots of nice gifts except for the idiots who gave me candy. My favorite..3 Farberware skillets. My old ones a disgrace. I put photos up of the Cathedral and me squeezed in the pew. Tom has a terrible cold..I bet he got it there. We are supposed to get haircuts this morning. This afternoon go to Gainesville to give the cat his IV and take to Vet in the morning. I hope this is the last IV. My pork came out great but for some reason I was not hungry. BG 110. How were your readings? Did you change your set? How is Ed these days? I hope he is not discouraged. 2013 has to be a better year. I hope Kathy comes home soon and she gets her friend Valerie to stay with her. Take good care and when you do not hear tomorrow you will know where I am. HUGS,Reed

Merry Christmas to u and ED!!!!! Yes the g-kids were over here yesterday for Christmas and they opened their gifts after we went to my g-mothers for Christmas Eve.
We went back there today so she wouldn't be alone for Christmas. Funny thing my hubby did????? he was at me g-mothers and she decided she wanted some milk and bread while we were there right??? being christmas everything wasclosed so he had to go almost 30 miles to another town and found one place with the milk there and 10 more miles to find the bread lol!
Here we have a snow storm warning out it's suppost to hit around 3am so the texco places that were open have sold out of milk and bread (the 2 things all Southern pplbuy when we hear the wenter weather warnings lol my hubby used to work for a dariy and he would say that if they gave a chance of snow it was his busest time lol) hope u guys had a good one!
