Good Morning!  

Happy Valentine's Day

J22, hope you enjoy the weekend getaway and the snow.  

Stars, I glad to hear the Prednisone is helping the knee and sorry that your sleep is disturbed.  Yes, Florida is the example of a large population with no restrictions during a pandemic wave.  1.8 million cases so far.  Lots of super spreader events, but at least us older folks have some sense about it.

Herring, hope you enjoyed the beach despite the wind and sand.  

Ted, glad your day shift went well.  

Overtime shift for me today.

Happy Valentine's Day

Morning Tweety

NJ22 that's quite a bit of snow

Stars glad the prednisone is working

Hi Herring

Amo hope  the mouse is finally dead

Ted glad the day shift went well

Hi Dianah

Yesterday was fairly busy for me.  Got my coffee and baked cookies in the morning.  It was snowing so I waited a bit for the roads to clear then went out mattress shopping.  Salesman  was helpful and found one that I liked that wasn't too expensive, a Sealy medium firm, and thankfully it didn't take too long.  Liked the hybrid mattress he showed me too but it felt almost the same as the Sealy but cost a lot more.  It'll be delivered in about 2 weeks, and they'll take out the old mattress.    

Rest of the day was quiet, ran an errand, got takeout, exercised, worked on cross stitch, and watched Three Stooges.  Skipped Svengoolies as I don't care for The Invisible Man

Today have church, not sure if I will be going in person or online as it's currently -2.   Have online coffee hour and then some cooking, in addition to the usual exercise and cross stitch.  J and I aren't doing anything this Valentine's except getting each other cards

Temps will rise after today but more snow possible this evening and tomorrow.  Kinda weird we've gotten so much in the last 2 weeks.  Hopefully this won't mean a delay in the arrival of spring

Afternoon-

I slept in today and then we delivered a chocolate babka I baked yesterday to Fiance's daughter. We stopped at a fish market on the way back and got some stuff for dinner tonight.  I'm going to try and shuck some oysters without losing a finger.  

It's warmer today and is just at freezing.  We're expecting lousy weather all week-freezing rain, some snow.  It will just make a mess and make driving dangerous.  

Hope all are warm, dry, and pain free today.

Happy Valentine's day. Husband knows I like flowers in the ground, but don't appreciate cut flowers as most do. For decades I did send Step-Mom flowers for her birthday or a holiday because she liked to show them to her friends.

I like chocolates too much, so he knows not to give me a box. (I thought about Forrest Gump) 

I hope we all have a nice enough day. I'm glad it is not freezing here.

Happy Valentine's Day. 

Yeah, we just exchange cards and hubby bought a bouquet for us.

Gosh, I hate to think of y'all being stuck in the disgusting weather fronts that just keep rolling in the North-er climes. Poor Nashville TN is coated with ice. Not sure of how Asheville NC is getting by, hubby hasn't spoken with step-dgt yet, but I'm sure we'll hear something this afternoon. We continue to be cold and rainy/wet.  No big complaints from me as long as we don't have to endure snows and ice. Nannie is disgusted that we aren't getting sunshine, but she's got to still get through another 3-4 days of gray skies. She will look at a puddle outside off the patio and say, "There's still some drops falling in that puddle..." Well, yuh, um, 'cause it is actively raining! Periodically she will say, hopefully, "It looks like the sky is trying to lighten up a little ...." HA! .... "I say, "Dream on, Nannie!" None of the weather reports I've seen have even a peep of sun in the fore-casts in the near future.

Prednisone continues to help the knee to which I say: 😀 YAY! But I did add an extra Xanax to last night's meds (only 0.5 mg.)  to assure that I would actually SLEEP, which I did do, thank goodness. 

Tweety, I hope you get through your OT shift without having to tack on another hour or two of OT to get your paperwork accomplished.

Joe, I bought a firm Sealy mattress way over ten years ago, but I can get by with just flipping it now and then. I think it's held up so well because it was a firm mattress to begin with. One of these days I'll get a new one, but it's nowhere near the top of my list. Hubby's mattress, to me, is way too soft.... with a dip in the middle, and it's probably 20 years older than mine. It has been in Nannie's previous guest room forever and may have been used by her and her hubby before they got the queen-size bed.I don't know how the queen-size mattress sleeps because it has a bunch of stuff on it from when we moved in, and there is just nowhere to relocate the stuff!  Nannie has an OLD, crappy 2nd-hand metal-springed mattress from her other dgt-in-law's mother's 2nd hand shop, and Nannie says "Ooooh, It sleeps so GOOOOD!" No telling how old it was when she got it 15 years ago, but she's happy with it, so that's the mattress report from here. 😂

BCg, Hope your digits' skin and bones have remained intact after oyster shucking!

herring- All the houseplants I had before we moved have given up the ghost; not sure WHY, but this house doesn't seem to like green plants. ☹️ However, I am going to try again with new ones, come springtime. Maybe the previous ones did not appreciate leaving the mountains, going to a lower altitude Maybe a certain acidic personality spoiled the air for them. Also, there are NO Southern-facing windows in this house!

j22, You usually post right before I do; wonder if that'll happen again today? 

amoLu, Tell me the mouse is dead and gone, please. 

Hi-howdy to dianah and Ted and who(m)ever else comes along!

Happy Valentines Day ❤️ 

We are driving home through a winter wonderland. We had a very laid back time in Seattle. Many businesses were closed due to snow, but we made do. I set out to pick up tacos for dinner last night, but the restaurant was closed. I found a little Greek food place and we had gyros instead. I told dh they were Greek burritos. They were excellent. And had some wonderful hummus and pita bread. This morning’s breakfast consisted of coffee and donuts from the grocery store. 
I saw something that touched my heart this morning gazing out the hotel window: someone trudging through the snow with 2 cups of coffee and a bundle of flowers. Dh bought me flowers when we got donuts.

Ugh. suppertime approacheth, and I am so tired of thinking about food. I can eat any of two dozen things easy to prepare and be satisfied. Hubby thinks he needs to make a full meal, meat, potatoes and (mostly starchy) vegetables. I wish he wouldn't ask me, because I just don't care. I generally eat some of whatever he cooks even if I don't want to. Cooks can get peevish if you don't dig in and chow down. I keep trying to 'splain to him that my digestive tract is on a different schedule from his and Nannie's. I don't necessarily believe in a certain TIME that supper (or any meal) must be served, and prefer to eat ... no breakfast but coffee, then around 2-3 pm, something handy to eat, and later on in the evening, maybe, something else, or leftovers, or nuke something from the freezer, or cereal and fruit. 

Sorry, I'm just blathering here 'cause I'm bored. Could look at the Sunday paper, I guess. Feeling quite MEH.

stars - I am still so envious of that prednisone. Some time back, I posted on the yellow something "dang opiods, just give me steroids!!!!" Meant EVERY word!!!

And no, I still haven't checked out the mouse. I am fearful that I could be startled and I'm just too physically unstable with my walker dependence to become unsteady. 

Looked up that Gilda Radnor character, Emily Litella. Never remember watching it way back, but just coincidentally, Rachel Maddox discussed her the other day on MSNBC, and it was hysterical. I'm sorry I'm never really followed her.

Happy Valentine's Day to all!!!  As y'all comment re VD gifts, I'm reminded of my Dad & Mom. Every year for VD, my Dad gave her a big box of chocolate covered cherries. A Whitman's sampler heart box or red celophaned  Russell Stover box. Only my sister and me at the time, and he bought us little boxes of indiv choc cov cherries (like 5 or 6 in the box). It was like a ritual every year! Such a treat.

Hadn't thought of that for looong time. Funny how things trigger memory! My Dad also bought my Mom one of those big choc cov coconut cream Easter eggs. Nasty things to me, but my Mom liked them, so Dad always got her one each year.

Joe - re your old bed. It prob would be MOST convenient for the bedding company to remove it, but you can DONATE it to shelters or Red Cross aid type agencies who'll GLADLY recover GENTLY USED mattresses.  Some time back, I commented to a quiet young mom coworker that I was replacing my old mattress and would be tossing the old one. Well, she requested that I donate to to some local aid agency who provided 2nd hand home furnishings to folks in need. I got the impression that she had been down on her luck in the past and could recommend the agency.

Well, my new bed was delivered and they just positioned my old bed standing against a wall until the charity agency came & picked it up. Went out of their way to time the pickup with me. And I gave them all my old linens that fitted that the smaller bed size (I upsized).

I figured if someone could benefit from it .... You can call around and ask ...
