We are soon going to be CH 2500. Are we going to have a party?
Good morning.
I hope you can get some rest today, Carol.
Can I put in orders too, Sunny?
I am happy for a Friday. We are to get some rains tomorrow. I am happy that they will be here on a weekend when I don't have to drive in them.
I hope everyone has a great day.

Can it be a food party? grin

I ran errands today, picked up GG and now here I sit and watch the winds howl away outside...I am thankful for wood heat.

Did you make a chicken dinner for her, Sunny?
I am trying to get rid of a nap I took. It's still trying to drag me back in. But I got a lot done today. And I'm ready for a weekend. My laundry is done until I strip beds and we take baths and showers, etc.

I have been pretty much worthless today. Worked on my Sunday school lesson a little bit but that's all. I didn't even make up my bed or get dressed. Not sure what happened to me. Must be the sleet and ice. I do NOT like having a well. I'm praying our power doesn't go out.

Good afternoon.

Yes, I roasted a chicken...it's her favorite meal. I'll use the leftovers today to make chicken fried rice grin

I hope you all stay safe with the weather...Mother Nature shared our Winter with all of you.

And now church is cancelled. Oh well I'm ahead of the game for next week. :)

Our power blinked off for a few minutes last night then came back on. Thank the Lord. We have gas logs and a small generator and have plans in the works to have a big generator installed but it just hasn't happened yet. Being on a well means we don't have water without power and for some reason that freaks me to know end.

Southerners aren't equipped to and can't drive in bad weather and the police are arresting people who are causing accidents if they are driving too fast for conditions. I'm glad. Unless it's an emergency STAY home.

Guess I'll get dressed today and might even wash my hair. Maybe I'll wait til tomorrow.

Yep, you are ahead of the game for next week. Good for you, Sheri.

I'll tell ya, Sheri, getting all cleaned up & such just to stay in the house is not what it is cracked up to be. I still do not know why I took a shower today. "Tomorrow" sounds like a good day to get cleaned up & dressed.

I do agree, if a person does not have to be out in bad weather, they should stay indoors. Plus not everyone is good at driving in bad weather...

So far today I have had 2 naps and I feel like I need third. We have not had any new snow, but it sure is cold.

Well, phooey. I know I typed in morning greetings today. I must have forgotten to post them. Wandering off in my mindless merry way.
Now it's nearly time to say good night. Today was a regular Saturday. I did a little of this and that around the house. And now I'm tired out. Sweet dreams all.

Good morning. It's going to be a good day. Although it's starting out pretty chilly. It will be interesting to see what February brings in weather.
Today the main focus will be getting ready for the week ahead. Some bedding, baths, shaving, nail clipping. Seeing that the week's lunches are ready. Etc. It's a day of routine and I like it that way.

Good afternoon. We have the beds back together and Teddy has had his bath and shaved and trimmed. I'm going to jump in the shower in a few. Moving right along today. After that will be Sunday dinner, clean that up and done.

We rode to the church today and the main roads are cleared but some of the side roads still have patches of ice. I'm not sure everyone will be able to get to work tomorrow, on time anyway.

The Panthers are going to the Super Bowl. Yippee.

I am glad you made it safely home from the church, Sheri. I don't have foul temps or snow on the ground but I didn't go out today in sympathy.
Sweet dreams all. I am almost ready for clean sheets and good sleep.

I had trouble staying logged in then want away, came back & now all is well. why

WE skyped with my 2 grandsons on the east coast. They spent time out in the snow today. Some of the snow was just about taller than the 15 month old.

G'nite & sweet Dreams everyone.

Good morning.

I am glad it is Monday, it seems that DH's nephew and family tend to visit on Sunday and it is playing me out...they landed here at 9am yesterday and stayed until I said that we had errands to run and I had to leave. They'd stay all day and night. They roam from house to house for free food and childcare.

On a better note, I hope that everyone is clear of that nasty storm that has been riding the East coast.

Today is normal house work and baking. Have a good day everyone.

Good morning. If I had spare relatives hanging around, I'd put them to work, Sunny. Make them earn that meal.
I'm tired but getting my coffee fix and I'll be ready to go. I'll need a nap when we're done this afternoon.
I hope everyone has a good day.

I like the way you think Tina. After they were put to work, if they came back to visit you would know they truly wanted to visit.

My second load of laundry is in the dryer. I think I am going to try for a nap & then finish the laundry when I wake.

See you all later... wavy

There is still a few places with patches of ice but it's a nice day; sun no wind.

Sunny, are these relatives from out of town? 9:30 is too early to show up at anyone's house unless invited for breakfast.

Good morning. I guess I never came in to say good night last night. I fell into bed at 9 last night and slept until about 2:30 when the dog needed out. It was a good sleep. So I'm good for the day. At least until I can nap.
I will get a few things done today. I've got a list.

Good afternoon.

Today I done up the housework, went for groceries and put on a crock pot of beans...soon it will be time for supper. I am thinking maybe rice and garlic ribs.

Our food prices have jumped again drastically....it is sad to see.

Good afternoon.
Sunny your price hikes have been touched on in our news. I know it has to be hard. I hope you have a big,successful garden this year. The few prices I hear about are drastic.
I got a lot done this morning. And now Teddy is home from school. It's nap time now.

Tina...our meat and produce prices are sickening. Today some prices were $6 for a lettuce, $8 for a small cauliflower, $5 for 2 pounds of onions, $8 for a small bag of apples...etc..

I have to shop sparingly and smartly. I pray we have a good Summer as well....and I'll start bottling more fruit as I can.

It is snowing out...I have a full day tomorrow with appt's and such with the grands so I probably won't get a chance to pop in until tomorrow evening.

Yes, those are the prices I am hearing too. I specifically noted the $8 cauliflower. Do you have a pressure canner? Our prices are about half yours which is not small.
Keep safe on your roads tomorrow.
I never napped today. I'm going to fall apart by bedtime.
