Baby, it's cold outside here!! No sn*w falling though.

I think I'll do some house cleaning and then make a trip to Hobby Lobby, just for fun.

Happy Saturday, all!

Good morning all,
Plan to get some baking done today, going to make English shortbread squares to make shortbread caramel sandwiches. Also making fruit & nut energy bars (have white beans puréed in) for mum as she isn't very hungry & need more protein.
Depending on what time I am done baking I will head over to mum's, otherwise I will go tomorrow.
Maryanne, hope your driveway gets done today. You need to give us some pic's

Thoughts and prayers for those healing.
Enjoy the weekend everyone and stay warm!!!

Good morning everyone.

Doctor is having a hard time getting hubby's INR to a therapeutic level. He was 2.1 on NYE. Last week he was 1.8, yesterday 1.6. Ideally, his numbers need to be between 2-3. Praying they don't re-admit him to start the heparin drip. BTW....this (re-admission) wasn't mentioned by the doctor, but it's been in the back of my mind. Praying I'm wrong. Maybe they will restart the Lovenox shots. So many things rolling around in my mind....sometimes I feel like that commercial where the guys head just explodes.

Judi....sorry to hear about Lucy's diagnosis.

Have a great day.

Good morning. Chilly wakeup and supposed to stay pretty cold. I may take Levi for a hike in the woods across the street today. Tommy's out scoping hunting spots with his brother.

I'm in full-on Cinderella mode this morning...taking down Christmas, laundry, cleaning. We're going out for dinner tonight with 3 or 4 other couples and we're having cocktails here first.

Judi, this year we're staying at Paradise Beach Villas and La Cabana. Still haven't finalized dates, but trying for 3 weeks, end of Feb, beg of March. I remember your birthday from a happy hour post while we were there last year. You were at the Trop, maybe with Mindy? I'm the female rainman!! :lol: We were either moving rooms or leaving that day so we couldn't pop in to say hi.

Maryanne, we need pictures. Linda, too bad you have rain on your last day. Pammy, I hope the energy bars help Mum.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning! Yes, many health woes in the swamp. Dan, Pammy and Donna's mothers, Mario...I do wish the best for all of you! Judi, I'm sorry to read about Lucy too. My husband's niece in California has a son who was diagnosed a few years ago. He's doing fine and managing well. She found a youth camp for type 1 diabetics one summer. It seemed to be a lot of fun to pal around with others his own age going through the same routine. I hope there is a discount plan to afford the insulin. I'm sure she's not liking this but she's not alone.

I need to make some appetizers for the VFW this afternoon. Chiefs football game at 3:35 pm...go Chiefs! It looks like it's going to be football in the sn*w. It is sn*wing here too but only a couple inches of wet stuff on the ground. I'll check outside in a while and see about running a shovel around the walks. I need to have the toilet, stove and fridge all moved off the floors by Monday morning for new vinyl flooring to be put down. What's there isn't in bad shape but it's straight out of 1972 and I want a new toilet so.... Maybe I should get my appetizers ready and see about removing the toilet before I leave. (I have another bathroom downstairs)

I see everyone is afraid to click the link showing the video an scuba diver took of an underwater water spout in Aruba. Here is another link to a YouTube video of it. I didn't realize it is 8 years old.

Good Morning!
17 sunny degrees, I'll take it~ We can hear small planes flying over our house from the small airport near us, that is always a nice sign of a sunny calm winter day.
Judi, so sorry to read the news of your sweet Lucy. Like everyone has said, she and family will grow into their new normal. Not making light of it, I am sure they are overwhelmed with all they have been told and need to learn. Prayers for all.... Hugs to Gram & Gramps~
Our grandson's are coming over later for supper and spending the night, so say their parents. Seems like ages since they have done that. Of course as the day goes on plans could change, teenagers have their own ideas. Think I'll wait till the last minute before I run to the store for fruit. :wink: :lol:

have a nice day ALL~

Good morning!

Bob & Marianne - How nice that your grandchildren's birthdays are so close together that you can celebrate all of them at one party. Enjoy!

Tara - if KC wins today and the Pats win tomorrow, who will you root for? :wink:

MaryLou - I hope the doctors can figure all of this out for Mario soon, and that he will not need to be re-admitted to the hospital. (((hugs))

Sunny and cold here today. We'll watch the KC game later and other than that, we're both just puttering for the day.

Enjoy your day friends!

Good morning! We are already at our daily high of 43° Defrosted/cleaned the chest freezer in the garage yesterday. After pluggin it in about 8 last night, it is now down to -1° F so we are ready to go. I'm not used to the freezer atop my beer fridge to have stuff in it other than beer mugs.
