Good morning. I would be such a liability on anyone's farm now, Sunny. I dream of waking each morning and all the things I would accomplish. The reality is much different, however. It takes so much effort (and meds) to just get perpendicular to the floor. And a little while into my day I need a nap. It is sad getting old.

Tina, do not feel bad...that's what working hard all one's life leads to. kissie Getting old isn't for sissies.

I have been making egg rolls, taco rolls, and donair rolls. I skipped the pizza rolls this year due to the cost of the ingredients. My eyes are burning from the grease smell though.

No snow here. 64° and sunny. Our weather is a bit schizophrenic these days.

Tina, any day perpendicular to the floor is a good day. You made me laugh.

It makes me laugh too. Really! But things are lots tougher to get through than it was just a couple of years ago. So it's funny though sad too.

I took a benadryl last night so I took a long nap this afternoon. It makes me feel hung over but it works.

I know I answered you, Sheri ! I am so sorry it is not here.
Anyway I said that the main thing is that it worked for you !!! The other will go away at some point, right ??

Dropping in to say good night. Sweet dreams.

Good morning. I wake feeling tired most mornings. But the sun rises soon and that makes me feel better.
Today I am a new decade older than yesterday. I have been preparing for the 70s for the whole last year and I am as ready as can be.

No cake. That is not a favorite of mine. But there was cherry pie. And that makes me happy.
Thank you ladies. It was generally a very good day.

Our province just received 1950 units of Covid vaccine. It is stored at a hospital about a 90 minute drive from here...they will begin vaccinating the doctors, paramedics and nurses first thumbup It is a good start.

That is wonderful, Sunny.
It has been double doses for half the people in most states, Carol. But the Governor of Florida wants to spread it around so people only get one dose. The vaccine is made for two doses 4 weeks apart. I don't know that one will do a lot.

I'm sorry Tina. I didn't realize you're having issues. I thought you were being funny. Hope you feel better AND glad you had cherry pie for your birthday.

I hope the weather man is wrong and the sleet doesn't show up in the morning.

Oh no ! Sheri....
I hope you do not get sleet as well.

Tina, I meant when they said we had 2900 doses..that I didnt know if that mean in essence 5800 shots for 2900 people or if that meant 2900 shots for half as many people. Sorry...I often am not clear..sorry.

I heard tonight that now a vaccine from Maderna (sp?) will soon be ready for distrabution.

I still have a few gifts to arrive to me yet..here's hoping !

And what I said didn't make as much sense as I wished it did. When they say they are getting say 5000 doses, they usually mean for 2500 people.
Pfizer took a pre-order from us for something like 100,000,000 doses. But now they are so booked up around the world with order for more we have to get in the back of the line to get more. Behind much of the rest of the world.
Moderna is a better deal because their vaccine doesn't need to be kept as cold as Pfizer's. A regular freezer works. And it lives longer than Pfizer's in standard refrigeration. I don't know how much we pre-ordered from them. And more vaccines are on their heels.

minus -15*F this morning....gone is the mild weather we were having. GG still has a sore throat so I will keep her home(it is going around at school), no other symptoms just the throat issue with all the kids.

I have to call today to arrange some curbside pick ups for DH(vet and farm supplies) for tomorrow. I'll get a large grocery pick up as well so I don't have to be out until after Christmas. thumbup

Today is my 'Christmas baking' day.

Yes, Sunny was busy baking.....different kinds of brownies, sugar cookies, scotch shortbread cookies, butterscotch squares, gingerbread men, molasses cookies and homemade chocolates. GG was home yesterday to help.

Today I am running errands for DH and parcel pick ups for the both of us.
