Morning 

Decent day at work.  Still people seem reluctant to answer my calls.  Guess there's nothing I can do but keep trying

Have talked to some former coworkers, they're providing references to the staffing agency, and are also going to let me know about openings where they work that might be appropriate.  

Went out with J to one of our usual places.  Choir practice was delayed due to the Ash Wednesday service

Tonight have a phone meeting with the environmental group.  Will exercise before then, will probably hold off on grocery shopping until tomorrow 

Starting to get warmer here, should be in the 40s by the weeekend

Good morning, Joe.

This new web site system is so whacky.

I haven't used a single "like" for the day, yet it is telling me I have used all my "likes" for the day!

Sorry, Joe.

Dentist appointment this afternoon.

It is gray and cloudy. Rain moves in tonight, and snowshowers tomorrow.

The break from gloom and rain was very nice, even if it was frigid.

Posted last night that my book club book, is very disturbing.

But it is written in such a way, that it is hard to put down. And I am reading it on my phone! That isn't even comfortable.

Time to drink coffee and settle into the day.

Safe travels to all.

Hi Joe and Nel! 

The last three evenings step-Mom has refused to eat dinner. She will drink two bottles of Strawberry Boost. The head caregiver got worried and called me. Yesterday morning she ate a full breakfast, and she had pancit and sliced strawberries for lunch. She won't get up until ten or eleven AM. I told the caregiver not to worry because two Boosts are 480 calories. 

Today I take husband for a screening carotid ultrasound. Sister plans to take step-Mom to lunch.

Rain stopped for now.

My mother's appetite waxes and wanes, herring.

She has always then thin, but now she is frail looking.

Actually, she is frail.

But she is 85-years-old, with cardiovascular disease.

Hope you have a good day, herring, with no surprises.

My "like" button is working again!

Hey, all...

I wonder how many "Likes" per day we are allowed, and why are our "Like"-ability is even subject to a certain number per day?  What could possibly happen to the system, if we met our quota and then were actually able somehow to beat the system, to go on "Like"ing to our heart's content? GASP!

For cryin' out loud, Joe! When you're supposed to call people and they don't answer... what do they think, you're some kind of bill collector or something? They don't want to admit they're not compliant? I don't get it! It's not like you're an ogre on the phone. (I think...😉)

Nel, how long have you lived in Ken-tuck? Did you know before you moved there what dismal the weather gets in the winter? GADS! And where would you live if you had your druthers? Here's what ya do: Get a Conestoga wagon, load up your stuff and Wally, attach the horses to the wagon, and set out for better climes -- if there are any better climes any more! / Hope your dental appt is quick, easy, painless, and inexpensive!

Nannie will eat practically anything you put in front of her, and frequently belongs to the "Clean-Plate Club". She has put on so much weight since we moved here, but I shouldn't talk about weight gains, like I'm lithe and agile. Usta be, but ain't no mo'. Phooey!

herring, hope your husband's carotids are clear and blood's a'flowin' easily through them.

My sister-in-law came over with my niece's little girl (2 y.o.) to see her Great Nannie. Kid's a pip, but can't remember Pippy's name. When I told her that the dog's full name is Pippy Doodlehead, she liked that a lot and kept saying "Doodlehead, Doodlehead". Fortunately, Pip likes little girls, and kissed her on the nose a number of times. Ozzie was being a crabby old man, so I held him to stop him from barking at her.

Hubby is outside treating the yard so we will have some LAWN for him to mow, come the warmer weather. It's always struck me funny how guys will put down grass seed and fertilizer, and then complain about how fast the grass grows and how often it needs mowing.  Well, DUH!

Boy, Nannie's brain's cloudy this afternoon. She swore up and down that it was NOT my SiL who brought the baby over, but SiL's mother, who is for-real La-la, and institutionalized. I gave up trying to convince her.

I may go out on a few errands, because Nannie is very into telling me all this family history which is NOT quite as enjoyable as "Fractured Fairy Tales" and I have reached my limit for now. How many times can you say, "I know.", "I know.", "Hmm.", "Uh-huh.", and "I know."?

"She ran from the room, threw herself upon her horse, and rode madly off in all directions." (not exactly sure to what story that line should be attributed,)

May be back later...

Remember Stars, one horse can't help pull the wagon, due to racetrack injuries, and the other is too well-bred to help pull it.

That leaves me and Wally to do all the work.

And Wally likes to dawdle.

So I guess that leaves me.

Dentist was just a cleaning. No problems and no cavities.

It started snowing while I was at the barn. The ground was covered.

I read in Washington Post that US has had the wettest winter on record.

No problem believing that!

We were talking at the barn that we don't think it will ever stop raining. 

Still haven't done my taxes.

Made appointment for next week.

I should go to bed.
