Just a quick hello

I have been in a shelter for 3 days, because I did not have any electric power, back now, Don't know how long I will be here, lots of stuff melting and falling on my roof. It sounds like a war zone outside. It may bring down my power lines here. I have to turn off my computer now.

Hope all of you are safe and warm. Hugs ~~~~~~

Stay warm or cool I meant to say.

Random Thoughts

If you do not hear from me for awhile, a ice storm is on the way and they tell us we may get up to 2 inches of ice and if we do---there goes our power !!
Then I will be alone with my thoughts and sometimes the things I think about or happy, sad or just plain boring like this blog is going to be today. So please don't just turn off your computer. ;*)

My thoughts today or about my former husband of 31 years. He is the best man I have ever known, he was a good Dad, husband, provider and friend. He had only one job for 30 years , and we lived in many places. Hawaii, Okinawa, Korea, Japan and many states. He worked for the goverment, he speaks several languages and he has be interested in Astronomy even before I knew him. He is retired now and owns his own business making telescope mirrors and he is the best mirror maker there is.

We have been divorced for 10 years, we are best friends, we write emails everyday day to each other. I have never loved another man and never will.

Why you ask ?? We just grew apart after the kids left home. Please don't let this happen to you. This is a happy and sad thought for today. I cherish all of my memories.

Stay or or cool for the next few days.

Hugs to all ~~~~

Welcome to my kitchen !

Another early day, ho hum !

Yesterday some nut was digging a whole for a water line and he cut my phone line, so no computer and no phone all day. I was one unhappy camper I wonder if he felt my unrest ??

Well, it is 4 A.M. and I have been up an hour and a half. I am in my kitchen where I spend most of my days. This is my favorite room, it has 5 windows and it is the best place to scrapbook and my computer and sewing machine are in here, too.

My bloggers are the greatest also, bloggers I follow. I was reading one blog and the lady makes greeting cards ---Surprise ! One caught my eye , it had a guitar on it and I am making an album for one of my grandson's for Graduation. He likes playing his guitar and I was looking for one, so I sent her an email when I could not find a guitar anywhere.
Bless her heart she told me she would cut one out on her Cricut machine ( those are the greatest) and I am saving for one and she has mailed it to me. Thanks, DeeDee !

I really have not forgotten all of you, it is just that I "think tank" is dry right now. It is time for another cup of coffee.

Hugs to all~~~~~~ Leslie

I am thinking about you Liz.
Not what I did not say up above. Sigh

Propane and cold weather !!!

I did it this time, I have to heat my mobile home with propane and I have never had propane heat. Well, last night in the middle of the night I ran out that stuff... and it got down to Zero (F)
I have been sitting here all day waiting for the man from Amerigas to come put fuel in my tank. He just left and it is not working. So Iguess I will be frozen solid before morning.
I think I would like to live somewhere warmer and soon.

I am thing about you Liz. LOL

Hugs and kisses~~~~

Cold Go Away !

I know almost everyone is cold right now except our lucky bloggers from other places.
It was 12 degrees here this morning and it is 14 degrees right now. Come nightfall we will be the winners with Zero degrees. Honestly, I am almost afraid to sit down because I might freeze in my chair.

I live in a 30 year old mobile home that has so many "air holes" in here it is like living in a collander ~~~~Tuesday my Doctor told me not to sleep with my electric blanket on since I am Diabetic now. Does he have something against Diabetic people ? Really, I know the reason why I should not sleep under an electric but, I doesn't make me any warmer.

I am making a nice crockpot of stew for my dinner and I have a small piece of cornbread in my fridge that will go nicely with the stew.

When I came back from having coffee with my neighbor and opened the screen door my hand froze on the door. Ouch ! It was trying to snow but, I was really to cold to snow very much.
But, if it has to be so cold I would like some snow to show why it is sooo cold.
Stay warm every one ,Hugs to all ~~~~~

This is my day !

You know I turn on my computer on as soon as I can walk down the hall into the kitchen.
I read my blogs while I drinking a cup of coffee. Now the phone rings and my neighbor says come over and have coffee with me, so as a added bonus I have been taking over something to eat while we are drinking our coffee. Some times a muffin and cream cheese , this morning it was banana bread and cream cheese. Last week I made Egg McMuffins !!! Sorry McDonalds, I can do my own now..

We wile away a couple of hours talking about this and that such as what are we going to do today or the next day ! Then maybe we add what we are not going to do ~~~~.

Tomorrow, I do get to go to Berryville with my friend to our craft class and do some shopping. But, if the weather is bad and the roads are icy we can't go until Wednesday.
Now , I have to write a few emails, and make a grocery list. Last but, not least do a little sprucing up inside my humble abode.

Baby, it is cold outside and the wind is blowing vey hard. Just keep the storms at bay until Wednesday~~~Please !

This and That !

My thoughts are scattered today and have been the last few days. So I decided not to write until I could get my thinking straight.

I have an allergy to something ! For 5 days I have scratched and scratched, I feel like I am losing my mind ! All I can think about is this itch...... If it doen't stop soon I am going to go see my Doctor. Well, that is enough about itching.

A little bit more about Morris and his talking fish now :

While Morris was admiring his fish, it started talking to him and he said, "Please put me back into the water." Morris was so startled he dropped the fish back into the water and was heard saying "I will be back another day." It was getting late and Morris and his goats started back home for the evening meal. When he told his Mother his story she astounded but, she believed him. Then his Mother told him that the fish had been seen by others from time to time.

It is cold and cloudy again today and the temperture has been 28 degrees all day. The weather person says all next week will be below freezing.

I guess by now all of you hope I will quit writing for today.

To all my blogger friends, I enjoy your blogs and you lift my spirits daily.

Hugs to you all.

Another early morning !

Hi, everybody !

I have been up since 2:30 A.M. that means I should have all of chores done, wrong I have been playing scrabble on my computer.

Now for a bit of my story.
Morris, the small boy is headed out with his goats and he wants to fish a bit. It is a beautiful Spring day, there is a light breeze and the smell of lavender in the air, the goats are grazing so Morris gets out his fishing pole and sits down in the cool grass where there is a shade tree.
In a blink of the eye, he has this beautiful fish on his line Morris, has never seen a fish like this one the scales blue and green. Thats all for today.

We are supposed to have snow or ice tomorrow. That is the day my friend comes and we go to our craft class. If it is to bad we can't go.

I am out of "blog" right now.

Hugs to all.

I hope all of you have the greatest 2009 ever !
I hope our new President can get our countries in much better shape. I know it won't happen over night but, I have hopes ! I hope the pain and hunger will start to go away.

I am so glad the Holidays are over, don't get me wrong I love the holidays. Everything is so rush rush at that time of year. I am not much on crowds of people running amok in stores and talking on their cell phones at the same time.

I have an idea for a Children's story but, I have no one to talk about it with me.
So bare with me a few minutes and I will give you a short paragraph about my idea. ( If you promise not to stop following my blog.) LOL

It is about a boy that live with his Mother and they are very poor. They raise goats and the boy tends them and fishes some times while the goats are eating.
The boy finds a talking fish. Okay that was the short part.

I am so happy to have my Cancer patient to send cards and note. I hope it is some comfort to her.

My oldest son had knee replacement this past week, he is Diabetic and won't heal very fast, so please pray for him, his name is Jim.

I love all of my blogger friends. Have a good day.

Hugs !
