Morning

Snowy day yesterday, must have had 3 to 4 inches of wet snow

Was an early day, early church service for Palm Sunday meaning an early choir practice.  Given the weather our procession was done largely indoors

Met J for lunch at one of our usual places.  Then exercised and did laundry

Today I begin another fast to see if I can get rid of those last 2lb.  We'll see how it goes

Going to be a busy week with all of the church stuff going on.  Thankfully it will be a warmer week and all of this snow should melt soon

Morning-

Raining, with thunder and lightning here.  I hope it stops before the Boston Marathon starts.  Can't run in lightning.  It's a state holiday in MA, but I work in RI, so off to work I go.  Fiance is off today as he works in Boston, and it's a madhouse on Patriots Day/Marathon Monday.

Joe-I hope that's the last snow you see this year.  Good luck with the fast!

Hope all have a great day!

Good night.

Last day in Japan was nice.  No regrets.  Leaving tomorrow and arriving in the states a few hours earlier than we left because of the time difference.  Weird.  working Saturday and hopefully jet lag with be bad.

Read you all.  Take care.

Husband's shoulder began to hurt yesterday. This morning it was worse. We got a 9:00 am appointment with our primary physician, he had an X-ray, and then an injection for tendinitis. It feels better already. No restrictions. 

His pain free ROM is improved already.

I made him French Toast with a whole egg. 

Lil Nel:  I finished the Living Danishly book. Thank you for the recommendation.

I remember in 2008 after reading "Dreams From My Father", and then at Spidey's Mom's recommendation enjoying "The Kite Runner". Both about son's and their father's.

I'm glad my step-son's and their brother, by youngest kid (age 49) have love and understanding with their Dad.

Good, Sunny, Warm, Breezy Day!

Joe, ACK! Snow? I hope it was the kind that disappears quickly. Tell those stubborn two pounds to SCRAM! (If it was that easy, I'd weigh 160 lbs again. Huh.)

BCg, I'll have to tune in somewhere to see if the Boston Marathon is able to progress as planned. I didn't know they were running today, duh. Nannie said, when I mentioned what happened at that awful, previous Boston Marathon, "When was that? That's the first I've ever heard of that happening!" But, then again, while she was reading the morning paper she remarked, "I didn't know Tiger Woods was a black man!"   🙄 

 [ I said, "Well, he still is." ]   

Tweety,  Rest well and recuperate from your "Time-Zoning". And, not to get too personal,  as was said in the way-olden days whilst preparing for battle: "Gird you loins!" Otherwise, I fear Saturday's work might be a rude kul-cha shock for you.

For some reason, that made me think of Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire, saying her husbands idea of foreplay was to say, "Brace yourself, Effie!" 

herring, Yeah, LOVE those tendinitis and bursitis shots. It's a bloomin' miracle how the pain disappears. / How is step-mom? 

Hubby just finished mowing, trimming and blowing the entire yard. Nannie was out walking (inspecting) the property with her walker. EVERYTHING has to be "just so" for her. GADS. Here she comes, reporting to me like I even care. Ah, well, I can sort of listen with half an ear, so I can say, "Uh-huh," at appropriate moments. I always used to wonder how a mother can tune out her kids, but now I know,  because I do it with Nannie! Like, who cares if the neighbor mowed 3 inches over into our yard? 

I need to locate myself elsewhere; she's in one of those repetitious jags, with the same statement being made 734,702 times in five minutes. Plus she keeps getting my husband mixed up with her Daddy and her husband; when she starts a sentence about one of them, the anecdote leaps from generation, relationship, etc. "He works so hard. There aren't many Daddy's who are loved like I like mine. I'm so lucky to have married him. I wish his brother was more like he is...."  Okie Dokie, then. My world, and welcome to it!

Hello to any and all who come along here .... hope you're havin' a good'un!

Step-Mom is still refusing to get out of bed. She is taking the thick ice cream, strawberries, and Boost by the spoonful. About 500 K cal a day. She sleeps most of the time.

You reminded me of when my Grandma lived with us. I always enjoyed hearing her stories of her childhood, and my Mom's, her brother and sister's. My husband just seemed to listening.

On day he was building the room that is not a 10 X 12 foot dog house. She was in the kitchen ironing. (She ironed bed linens and even his boxer shorts)

He ran out of nails, walked to the hardware store, bought nails, and walked home. She was still talking. He began working and said, "I think you'r right, Grandma." She never knew he left. 

When my Mom's brother was in high school a fellow student was bragging and said, "My mother is so well educated she can speak on any subject."

My uncle said, "You think that's something? My mother can speak without a subject." 😄

I may have told y'all this before, but in our other house, the kitchen sink faced a wall, so the entire kitchen was behind me as I washed dishes. One evening I was chatting away to hubby, and at one point I turned around ... he wasn't even in the room!

I told him from now on to at least let me know when he was leaving the room, so I wouldn't be left talking to nobody. The warning was "I'm leaving the room; don't talk to me." 

Eventually it got abbreviated to, 
"Don't talk to me." 

Okay then, I won't! 🤣

I've been watching news coverage of the fire in Paris; Notre Dame.  Such a heartwrenching and heartbreaking event.  

I did check in on the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation runners in the Boston Marathon.  They raised over $200,000 dollars.  

Cold, rainy, windy here.  

Good luck Tweety with jet lag.  Safe flight home.

Have been keeping up with the fire via FB and news, so sad to see this!  Yes I know "we" can rebuild but there is something beautiful and special about the longevity of the building and the gorgeous windows, testaments of craftsmanship and attention to detail, from centuries ago.  

We arrived home from the festival around noon, have unpacked and I have laundry going.  I had changed sheets and towels before we left, so they will be clean tonight.  We had a good time: enjoyed camping (everything in the rig worked well, yay!), met some new folks, jammed with some ppl we see only rarely so it was a treat to jam with them!  Ate some good food, and most of us even got ice cream (one time) and root beer floats (another time) from the ice cream truck vendor!  Heard some good bands play, and we enjoyed playing our set on Sunday morning.  The weather was good: in the mid-70's during the day, around 50 degrees at night.  All in all, it was a good trip! 

This Friday night (Good Friday) we will attend the Hymn Sing up at Oak Glen.  Fiddler will play piano for the singing, and the band will do 3 songs and then sing along with everyone for the rest of the evening.  It's always so enjoyable, to sing as a community!

Really have enjoyed seeing Tweety's photos from Japan!  what beautiful and memorable places he saw!  Safe travels back, you two, and I hope jet lag isn't too bad!

I haven't yet read through Friday-through-Sunday's threads; will catch up soon though.  I did miss you all!  (our cats were glad to see us return!)

OK, gotta check the wash.  Have a good evening!
