Good morning. I have stuff to do today. But I can't remember what yet. More coffee is required.

Looks good in here, Tina. Thanks.

Good morning.

Our roads are covered in ice, but as I have nowhere to be for a few weeks, so be it.

I picked up Colt today. He's out of school for a few days. He doesn't know why and neither do I. Do they get a break for Valentines Day now?

Raining again and going to rain for the next 5 days. I'm hoping the weather man is wrong.

Man, I hope for Colt's sake it doesn't rain constantly. That is hard on a kid.

Gee, no as far as I know schools do not take Valentine's Day off. Glad Colt has you to stay with.

I am dropping in to say goodnight. Sleep well my friends.

GG is off to school, excited to have a little class party for Valentine's Day. We have no active Covid cases in our little zone so that means that GB can come for a visit this weekend, he is so excited.

Bestofour, Monday is a holiday here...Family Day. They just made it a holiday a few years ago.

Valarie 's school had today off, no idea why, Henry's school had school called off because of the weathet.
Monday is President's day so no school then either.

Good morning. Drinking my coffee now.

Yes, I can see where it would be, Tina. Sorry I was not in this a.m.

This morning when I had not been up long, the girls video called me on Duo and we talked for well over an hour...then I went downstairs to try to order the girls their birthday gifts..well, it.was.near impossible.to buy clothes when.noone likes.pink...then one does not like orange, or green and one does not like green I forget what other color. I finally gave up and bought then July 4 th short sets.
There will.also be a few play things and I will buy them something later when mom sees what she still needs for them to get thru the summer....

You described it perfectly, Tina. LOL

Tonight I made a Red Velvet Dream cake with white fluffy icing. That is Rod' s
Valentine's Day gift.
I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to put red sugars on it..
Kinda proud of myself.

Goodnight everyone sleep well.

Good morning. Thanks for the Valentine's Day wishes, Sunny. Same to you and yours.

You are not alone, Sunny. When I try to read my e-mail this tablet freezes. So I have to close out, go away wait awhile go back and try again. Eventually it will work. The other day, it would not turn on. Seems it is always something.

7*F outside here. The feels like temp is -12. Brrrrrrr

We've had nothing but rain. No snow here. And speaking of red velvet cake, Ginger sent me a box that when the lid is taken off, butterflies fly out of, and it had a little red velvet cake in it. A fun gift.

I've seen those butterflies(they had an elastic band), if you wind them....they'll fly again.

The problem with my computer is that I can't shut off Windows updates, my old computer I could....it freezes in the update half the time.

There is no school today, we are in the middle of another nasty storm.....a foot of snow followed by freezing rain late this afternoon.

I made a large pile of snow in the back of the house from where I shoveled the roof off(for the kids to slide off)....well yesterday GB decided to jump off it, hit the vinyl siding against the house and busted a big hole in it. Cold weather and vinyl do not mix. I still haven't replaced the pieces damaged by the hail storm years ago. I guess I will add that to the 'to do' list for this Summer.

.......It is -3 here tonight.
Today we have lost power 4 or 5 times. Good news is the longest it has stayed off was about 1 minute. And that only happened once. Other times, it went off & came right back on. I guess I cannot complain...

I will say goodnight now...I am thinking I will read until I feel tired enough to go to sleep.

Sleep well everyone...& Keep warm.... " see" you tomorrow.

Thanks for the kind words.

Do you have another source of heat when power goes out Junie?

I have been watching the news about the deep freeze in Texas, what a mess to deal with when one is not prepared.

Off to do barn work and clean snow.
