    Happy Groundhogs Day / FEB 2 2018

    Will the Groundhog see his shadow today?

    Good morning.

    Am up early today, couldn't get back to sleep. Am waiting for my tea to cool a bit.
    Have laundry to do today.
    Otherwise it's another ordinary day around here.
    Yesterday E dropped another load off at Goodwill, and came home with a package of Dove dark chocolate hearts for me. Yay!
    Tomorrow is my haircut day.

    Have a great day, everyone! 🤗

    Geeze, Jostoy, do not give them any ideas because the gynecologist IS the only doctor I have not seen! I will tell you I will never turn 70 again. It has been one thing after another ever since that day. And I never even got a cake since I had the thyroid surgery on my birthday!!

    Went looking for Sierra's work clothes and could not find them so when I called her she was wearing the dirties. There was a clean set in the dryer but she brought in food when she came home last night and all thoughts of laundry went right out the door...seems we only communicated over food last night! McDonald's is so cheap they only give these kids two shirts (they provide their own pants). Sometimes I get so mad at the times I stop and support that darn fast food place but addictions are hard to break. But on the bright side we will be eating cream of broccoli soup this evening.

    I went an read the Red Alert and agree totally. If someone will just send out notice on how much and when I will be glad to put my check in the mail. This site is very important to me and my mental health. You all know my warts and political views and even why my teeth are grinding down to nothing.

    As for the GH...he is always telling us 6 more week of winter every year and he is normally right. Gotta go tell the thermostat I am home today...my nose is cold! My son needs a more grandma friendly thermostat...it ignores me totally!

    You know, when I lived in Texas they used to have Sidewinder Sam (rattlesnake) instead of a GH. They hoped it would catch on for the Southwest in general. It didnít ! Who the heck is going to get close to a rattlesnake to see if it saw itís shadow?!!! 🐍

    The groundhog around here saw his shadow and that is the last we saw of him for six weeks. So it looks like 6 more weeks of winter and with the temps. down to 11 this morning I can believe it. See you in the Spring, I hope.

    Peeking on, not a lot going on around here, I go from ball game to ball game, Grandson is in basketball season now, I think it is the one he enjoys the most. I love seeing him going down the court, when you can tell from the look on his face that the only thing that exist is him, the ball and the basket.

    Got a call from my friend Sheryle, could tell from her voice it wasn't just a catch up call. Her husband passed away. He had been so sick for such a long time that it wasn't unexpected and was all most a blessing.

    Good Morning, been a busy one already, trash day, bill pay day, get the luggage ready, fix some breakfast, etc., etc. and the only way to get that done sometimes is to just not get on the computer...

    Jostoy, I read the Red Alert and commented, hope everyone reads it..and I agree...no more middle person for the 'money' and get a comment of what we have paid and for how long...so we can have it in writing not by word of mouth...

    Cookie you are way busier than I could be, youth has its advantages, LOL...

    Maxie I understand just how you feel my life has become one big Drs. appt. Even with all my heart issues I have never had a heart cath, the TEE shows them my heart and whether I have a clot or not, guess from my symptoms they aren't concerned with the arteries YET! Jostoy your funny, or were you not trying to be funny about the gyno statement to Maxie, LOL...

    Paula, the spaghetti sounds great, I don't do funerals very well, or for that matter being around when others are sick or dying....you must have some really great parents that they understand and are agreeable.

    JoG what a wonderful thing for E to do...Didn't like the news about that darn ole groundhog...folklore

    I also have some laundry to finish up on, find the weather reports and pack accordingly...

    Have a good day one and all..

    Nightstorm, sure appreciate all of your help and time a little extra to compensate you would be in order also if I knew an name and address to send it to.

    I just read that Your PA groundhog, P. Phil, did see is shadow, Donna. Maybe your resident GH will be a better forecaster and since it is snowing and he didnt' see his shadow....

    I always thought if the GH sees his shadow we get 6 more weeks of winter because he is afraid when he sees is shadow...
    I always tell the daycare kids California groundhogs are not afraid of a silly shadow...because we almost always have a sunny day around this time of year.
    So you can go with the CA GH, or Donna, check and see what happens if P Phil doesn't see is shadow.
    anyway, the violets are coming up and at my mom's you can even smell them: she has so many growing all around her yard.

    Funeral this morning at 11:00 and I am meeting at 10:30 (the best we could do with all of our schedules) to practice! I have been singing this morning and trying to warm up my voice, but since I am always singing in a lower key, I am not sure how much good it does. The organist is going to adjust the organ down a bit so it should go well, but that is why we have to practice...too low and it will be crazy. The other thing about all the preparation for this funeral is my friend's mom died on Monday and the funeral, obviously, is today so it is all happening between Sunday services and getting the word out and food assignments and such is a bit harder...and then there is another service tomorrow that we all lhave known about and signed up for food so it is a bit of double duty.
    I made the Million dollar spaghetti last night: spaghetti noodles with a layer of cream cheese/cottage cheese and sour cream in the middle, topped with the meat sauce and then shredded cheese.

    I really appreciate my daycare parents for arranging their schedules for my day off. I am not taking any day off for president's day or anything else as a way of making it up to them. I had thought about a day in March for some medical appointments, but I will wait and see what the month looks like.

    I have to get going and will check on the REd Alert, jostoy.
    Have a good Ground Hog day and I wish I had a cookie to celebrate, Donna!

    Morning..sunny but very cold this morning. Yesterday the radio told me the temps would drop to 30 by 5:00 and it was noon and the temp was only 27! Someone was way off but the temps did keep dropping! So tired of winter...

    So very tired of seeing doctors. Now I am going to have a heart cath and if there is a blockage it will be fixed then and there. HOWEVER, the doctor beleives I may be that percentage that shows a bunch of problems but when they get in there and dig deep, there is nothing wrong. Since we have come this far and since there is a chance of a problem I will complete this last test and then I can stand up and yell that I do not have heart disease just a bunch of anomalies. But in the meantime I have an appointment with the derma on Tuesday just in case there went a few days without seeing anyone in the medical profession. Is there any doctor I have missed in the last 6 weeks?

    No kids today so no cooking. I do have to do work clothes for Sierra and have never made that pot of cream of broccoli soup. Ran the dishwasher before I went to bed last night and I see someone washed up last nights sink pile so that is a nice surprise. Sounds like a lay a round day for me. Sick of this cold weather but happy we are not sick... Take care and stay healthy everyone.
