Had a less than stellar visit today so I went and got my cartilage pierced. Just put me in the nut house now. Other than that, mostly a lazy day.

Good morning. I need to get some house work type things done today. Our temps are to go up to the 100's by the weekend. I probably won't move much then.
I hope all have a good short week.

Prayers for Jimmy. Tell him I wish all goes smoothly for him, and he is soon back to his old self...

Good Morning everyone----

and may I say, while I will be sad when my daughter moves back home--(3 hours away) I will not be sad to see her 2 large dogs go. When she is not here, they think I should get up and take them out--only instead of 6 like their Momma does, they think I should take them out at 5, because that is when Rod gets up... egad

many errands and a Drs. visit today----nothing wrong, just a check-up.

Going out for breakfast afterwards...
Woke up to the ground wet and smelling so good... don't know who much it rained but it is nice... don't have to water today... Yay!

Well off to finish getting ready and take meds....have a good day all....!

Carol If my dogs hear any human movement before I let them out at 5:30 am,, they feel they have to go outside at that time too,,, which means they whine and whine until I get up to let them out so I feel ya on that! zoink


Nana Congrats to Timothy clap I know you all are proud of him. I saw Carrie's Pictures on FB,, grin
Thanks everyone for Thinking of Jimmy today, He was taken to his room around 4 today he says he is sore but other wise feels good, they placed 3 stints,, I told him don't go running the halls,, lol and we all know he will give the nurses a hard time :wink:

Thanks Diane,

We are all very proud of Timothy- he got all A's and B's too... did a last report on the Spartan's , made a model out of scrap wood we had.. did a report on the battles and did a presentation too... his teacher was very impressed and gave him the highest grades in the whole 6th grade... said it was high school quality work... the other day when I was cleaning out my office I found his journal from 2nd grade and gave it to him, he got tickled at his lack of spelling ability and the things he loved in second grade... did a whole 3 pages on Halloween... they do grow up so fast!

More prayers going out for Jimmy... hope he doesn't give the nurses to hard a time... and takes it easy too... got my candle lit for him...

We got a call from our house insurance people and they told us they could give us a lower rate since we got a new roof.. evidently a new program... so took our paperwork in and it saved us 800 a yr... yippee! that is half what it was before... so that was really worth finding the receipts for the roof and signing a paper .. took 15 minutes.... took longer for me to find the paperwork on the roof!

We had some rain today... enough to water the yards and flowers nicely... my iris are blooming like crazy... they get so heavy they fall over so I have been cutting them and bringing them in- don't last long but they are pretty... it snowed up at 10,000 feet too... gotta love spring in the Rockies.

Well off to clean up the kitchen, made chicken and dumplings from a receipe I found online... came out rather nicely- course I added a few things to "George" it up as my Mom would have said.. seemed rather bland to me .. so added some parsley to the dumplings and to the broth some extra chicken stock I had in freezer... and some sage and more pepper... Joe said he would eat it again so it's a keeper... was easy too so that's a plus...

Have a good evening all... 6 was early so am headed to bed soon as kitchen is done... will have boys tomorrow afternoon ,time to organize our summer reading and keeping up with school stuff... so have to look up spelling lists and such...

Nana

We have Solar now to help cut on energy costs, but we don't have a generator so when the power is out it's still out; that's something I'm going to have to look up eventually... Ideally I'd like to have a battery bank that's charged from the panels that will kick in when the power goes out, but with how they have to have it configured with the power company it's not *technically* feasable to have it wired that way...

We "have" to have it installed as: Solar -> Inverter -> Power Company -> Us; so technically I'm "supposed" to charge it with power from them versus what I generate...
