Morning

I am working today. Did not sleep great last night so I wish I had today off

Yesterday was very quiet.  Went to church early for choir, found out choir wasn't singing.  Small turnout given the cold.  Rest of the day was quiet, since J was under the weather.  Exercise, meditation, worked on embroidery, and watched TV.

Hoping today won't be too crazy, you can never tell with this place

Weather will be improving, more normal temps in the 30s up from the severe cold the last few days

Good Morning -

Joe - That lack of sleep thing is no fun, especially when having to work the next day. Hope work is kind to you today. The cold is hitting us, too. It was 7 degrees outside this morning. Ugh!

Unlike our good friend, Joe, I slept well last night. (Although the all-knowing Fit-Bit watch said that my sleep was only "Fair". L O L!) My plan for today is to simply rest before going to work tonight. Really do hope that work is "Q" tonight.

There were only 3 choir members for rehearsal, yesterday at church. We spent some time learning a new anthem. Hopefully there'll be more choir members next Sunday to prepare for the new anthem. My plan is to present the new anthem in two weeks from now. Church itself was nice. I like the "Per Diem Pastor". He gives inspiring sermons. After church, Amy and I relaxed. It was too cold to go outside to do anything. 

We got another 3+ inches of snow last night. It looks pretty outside. However, that "prettiness" gets old real quick. There's only 2 1/2 months until spring time! Yes! L O L!

Hope all have a pleasant day today! 🙂

Ted

Good morning!  Happy MLK Day!

Joe, hope you have a good shift.

Ted, enjoy relaxing before work.  I always hated sleeping the night before having to go in and be awake all night.  Funny how your perceptions and the fit bit are different like that.

I didn't sleep well myself. I 'm off today and may take a nap later.  The cold blast has made it here, it was 48 degrees (yeah I know, that's not cold) and am glad I turned my heat on before going to bed as it's cranking this morning.  Supposed to get even a bit colder tonight.  We always worry about the strawberries and oranges when it gets close to freezing inland.

Today is SlowBros six month check up that I pay for by the month in his wellness plan.  I'm not expecting any issues. 

Hope everyone has a great day.

Good MLK day Tweety, Joe, and Ted!

Nice overcast day here. Once husband gets his tire changed I think I'll take Pearl for a walk. 

Son and DIL finally got most of their boxes unpacked. They bought their house and now find his wife's commute is too long and one of the trees in the back yard fell. His oldest brother, my step-son calls him almost daily and then calls us to tell us how he is doing. He also calls to remind us about each birthday in the family. He even calls to tell us, "It is Uncle John's birthday today. (Uncle John died in 1977)

I tried to post this a while ago but for some reason I couldn't get the little up-and-down scroller thingy to work. So I just closed down  I retrieved my post by just clicking on this 'empty' box and my complete post appeared again as if by magic...

A cold, but very sunny afternoon. Happy MLK Day....

Last night at one AM, I sat in the den with Nannie, who said she was hungry. She hadn't really slept much to that point; I was getting ready to head up to bed and read. I made a p'butter and banana sandwich, and we each had 1/2. When I saw she had just one inch of milk left in her glass and realized she was getting chatty, I raised my hand and told her I wasn't being rude, but it was quarter to one in the morning and I was heading up to bed. I didn't want to hear the story of her grandmother's boarding house, yet again! She went to bed. Whew!

I sorta slept, or tried to, for two hours, then after that I woke up about every 30 minutes ... curses! Fell soundly asleep around 4:45 AM. Then at 9 AM the doorbell rang! WHAAAT???? It was the H/C guy to do his 6 month maintenance and check up.

Well, Ozzie and I sat outside, he was all wrapped up in a blanket, in my lap, and I had coffee. The H/C guy finished up and left.  We went back to bed at 10:30 and I got snug with Ozzie, we slept until 12:30 PM. Hubby told me later that the H/C guy was supposed to come at 1 PM; he had a note on his work order that said 'FIRST'...and apparently he'd read no further, because under that word it said 'after lunch'. Duh.

As I sat on the sofa just now, I wondered what was scratchy at the front of my throat, and discovered I had put my turtleneck jersey and sweater on BACKWARDS this morning when I was getting dressed in a hurry. Another DUH!

Nannie is blathering on about how the carpet on the steps look much cleaner, now that her Momma had washed it down! Pretty good work for a woman in her grave these past 25 years...(I did not say).

Finishing the clothes drying that needed to be completed from yesterday. Next I will read my newspaper. It promises to be a "Q" day, but promises are made to be broken 🙄 and we all know how what'shername gets. It looks to be about 2 & 1/2 hours before she starts doing her sundowning thing.

I don't know what I clicked on, but just now the printed letters on this page got a lot larger. 

herring, in your last post yesterday you mentioned the police getting off free after beating up Rodney King. I remember how disbelieving I was at that decision made by the jury, when anybody with eyes who watched the video of it could, or should have been able, to see how obvious it was that the cops were G-U-I-L-T-Y. Anyway, when you wrote that you started singing, I remembered a quote I read two days ago, it said, "Life is a shipwreck, so we must remember to sing in the lifeboats". You sang. (nodding-head emoji should go here.) Good response.

I'll probably stop by later. STAY WARM!!!!

Okay, the scroller is working, so NOW I can post this!

Hello all!

Good to hear from you!  Hope the non-sleepers soon get sleep.  I have stopped fretting about if I sleep or not.  If I don't, at least I have rested and I hope I will sleep the next night.   If I have, good. 

We played and participated in Friday night's Hymn Sing, which was very enjoyable.  Saturday and Sunday nothing was planned and we stayed home and I read.  That's all.  I was quite the lump on a log.

Today I have done household chores and read in-between them.  The cats are always happy when we are home.   Tonight we are meeting oldest ds for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.  We talked with youngest today, it was nice to hear from him.  We will see him and DIL in mid-March; they are doing well.

Have a good MLK day.  It's always good to contemplate changes that have happened through the years.  More can be done.

Had to dash back by to tell you the 'BIG NEWS' ... from the mouth of 😂 Nanny,  who had her eyes closed, becoming drowsy, as it was close to time for going to bed. Out of nowhere, she spoke out~

~This seemed SO important to her that she actually spoke loudly and with unusual clarity to her speaking voice, with her index finger pointing up at the end of her outstretched hand.

She proclaimed:

"THEY HAVE FOUND MAHOGANY EARTHWORMS!"

It struck me as something that must be shared, shouted from the roof-tops, maybe. Maybe someone, somewhere will be able to say what mahogany earthworms mean for the future of the Earth, and to us as individuals.

I mean, like, wow, man! 😎
