A mix of clouds and sun during the morning will give way to cloudy skies this afternoon. Snow flurries this evening will give way to partly cloudy skies during the night. SSW winds shifting to NNW at 10 to 15 mph.

Adina,
No rest for the weary, or, is that the wicked? ROTFL!!
Adorable doggies!!!

Sunkisssed,
You are a beautiful family!!

Rusty,
I had a sore throat for a day. You have my sympathy on your's and your neck. I hope both are better now.

Minnesippi,
Grinning over the snow and dead stops :o)

Pepper,
Grinning over the enthusiasm for snow. I was just telling DH I am not ready for it yet, LOL!

Jeanne,
Working with plants sounds wonderful! I need to go thru seeds to see what garden I'll be putting in next year, and send seeds out to a friend.

Celia,
I'll take the snow over the nasty wind :o(

Thanks for the fresh start Bernie,

It took me a while to get the house back in order and fall back into the routine with the Grandkids, and going to DD's for a day, which I did yesterday. I miss the kids already :o)

Sunkissed,
Whooo, I'll bet the house was cold!!

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY DEAR CELIA! LOVE YOU!

Pepper,
We hung the rest of the lights yesterday but had a bit of a sharp wind. Your day sounds nice!

We have a bit of ice on the back steps this morning so a passover rain must have fallen after dark. I went to bed early, so I never heard a thing!

We have that cold front heading this way. It's supposed to rain over the next few days, and I didn't get the GH watered yet. Oh well. It's been cool enough maybe they are still damp. I'll try to check on them tomorrow. We may have a freeze next week, so they should be watered before then...

Some family members got the crud so I started the Dayquil to try to head it off at the pass...Had a major migraine a couple of days ago, but feeling better today so had to run errands, pay bills, groceries...you know the routine.

Dearest daughter was able to get a good deal on a laptop for my youngest granddaughter, and the other two are getting cash, so I just have a few things to pick up for the adults. Answered prayer!

It has been decided that we will have Christmas HERE. At least most of the deep cleaning got accomplished for TG, so I just have to vac, dust, and do floors. I hadn't planned to put up a tree, but I guess I will...2 ft or 6 ft...that is the question!

Sorry to hear about all of the storms, wind, lost of power. I can relate, only when we get those situations it's usually 95 deg. outside. I usually don't have to turn on our heat until Jan or Feb, but I've already had it on most of the past week of night and early morning. It's either pay the energy company or the vet for the babies...Energy co. won.

Happy Holidays!

40°/48°/33° Rain likely. Winds S at 10 to 15 mph. Rainfall around a half an inch. Cloudy with occasional rain... mainly this evening. Chance of rain 80%. Rainfall near a half an inch.

Pepper,
Don't worry, you'll get your snow eventually.

Jeanne,
How many plants do you have in your greenhouse?
I hope you can head off anything that's going around.
The crud. I wonder if it's a new thing or if it was around when I was a kid, under a different name. I am so thankful I don't have migraines and very symathetic for those of you who do. I'm glad you feel better.
Smiling over the good fortune to not have to run all over loking for gifts.
Sometimes a small table-top tree with the gifts piled on the floor look nice. Do you have a low table to bring a small tree just a few feet off the floor?

We get the boys today. I held off to give DD a chance to dose everyone. The twins have ear infection in one ear. That just started.The oldest has a perpetual cough that they insisted he get medicine for. It's been on-going for a year. They kept telling the Dr. that. He also got an asthma type medicine to open up his lungs. The middle boy seems to be healthy this time.

I know we're tired of sick boys!

59° this morning and up to 77 today, should make it back to 80 by Tuesday before next front comes in. We are heading to north FL in our motorhome for a week to Stephen Foster State Park campground, they light the whole park in Christmas lights...It will get down below freezing mid week there...so getting my fuzzy boots out from under the bed and dusting them off. ☺ They will have snow flurries each night...don't laugh the only way I'm gonna see snow.

Sorry to hear everyone catching bugs...take lots of vitamins and drink lots...clear liquids...that is. Rest if you can...ha!

Rusty I hadn't heard about CA. I've been busy cleaning and decoration this week and not watching TV. I'll have to look that up...Like Texas gal only time we see winds like that is during the hot months...in fact I've never seen winds like that ...really that is something.

Everyone take care this week...my husband and I don't have the fancy take on the road Internet phones, so won't be able to chat until we get back...remember only 22 more days...☺ he he.

My son went thru numerous ear infections when he was a toddler, and my granddaughter for much of her young life...no fun! Oldest granddaughter had to have tubes put in her ears when she was a toddler...had forgotten about that!

My daughter was allergic to milk from the time she was two yrs til nine yrs. One eight oz. glass would throw her into pneumonia. She ate her cereal with diluted liquid dairy creamer. I even cooked with it. She still has to be careful in the winter mos not to eat ice cream. She still has asthma. She is one of them with the Upper Respiratory Infection. She is coughing up green stuff. They gave her a steroid shot and antibiotics.

In my greenhouse I have 12 small plumeria trees, two mid size plumies, and one very large plumie, several ferns, 5 majesty palms, a bird of paradise, numerous airplane plants, aloe vera, a firecracker fern, wandering jew, think that's most of it...I'll let you know if I forgot anything after I water. I just open the plastic enough to stick the hose in...I can't walk in there or even step in there it is so full. It is an eight by eight gazebo enclosed with industrial strength shower curtains and a canvas cover. It worked a few years ago so hopefully it will this time. I tried it on the patio last year with the tan canvas side covers and plastic, but it did not work. I still ended up covering them up with sheets to add warmth.

I do have a table to put the tree on, so it might end up the smaller one. The last time I put the six footer up it was up for one and half years...I have fibro and no body wanted to help take it down...so it stayed up. After I finally got it down I said, "NO MORE!!!!" The two foot is beginning to sound like the best idea!

I have insomnia...still haven't been to sleep all night...too much sugar before bed I think...my brain just won't shut down. I hope to go try again here shortly. I've already taken pain killers, and benedryl and melatonin...yeah.

I think I'll put on some quiet music...you know they say it calms the beast...

Take care!

Sunkissed,
I'm grinning over your traveling to the cold when you temps sound so NICE!!
That sounds like an awesome place!ave a safe trip and a wonderful time!! I'll bet you look cute in your fuzzy boots :o)

I'm done shopping!!! I've not even started wrappping...

Jeanne,
The oldest has tubes, and had his adenoids out a year ago this month. Right after Christmas. He went thru it well and was barely sore after.

Your daughter has my belated sympathy. That's a real tough row to hoe when you are so little. I think that's the Grandson's problem. Always carrying upper respitory.

That's a neat assortment of plants. You just need an over-head sprinkler!

You know, I think I remember the tree being up for that long from another thread. It sounds familiar. I think the little tree sounds just as nice!

If I spend a lot of time on the computer close to bedtime I find all night long I dream about still being on. I try to run the mouse, read and everything. I don't think that's good, so I don't get on at night anymore.

I think the music is a good idea. Nap well :o)

Well, my last thread caught up on...here.

Have a nice day everyone!

It was a very warm day today and not so cold tonight, but freeze is predicted for Wed am 32 deg.

Partly cloudy. Winds N at 10 to 15 mph. Partly cloudy this evening with more clouds for overnight.

Bernie,
No snow, but the icy wind tells me winter is close.

Jeanne,
Some times you just need all that sleep at once. I hope it broke the insomnia.

Bernie,
Lovely picture, but for some reason I can't get into winter mode. I am not ready. I wonder why?

Pepper,
Cracking up over our "polar'' opposites :o)

I had the boys help put up Christmas decorations yesterday. They love to help :o)
I made refrigerator bread that I can bake from today, and I have more delicate Christmas things to put out. I love the quiet time I have with my snowglobes :o)

We like sunny D. I haven't seen the peach. It should be good!

I've never tried warm oj.

I think I did need the sleep all at once. I've been sleeping really well now.

We have a cold front coming thru, Thurs it's supposed to be 30 deg.! Cooooold!!!!!!! It's not going to get much above 55 all week, but then it is December!

We got some more Christmas shopping done today so I am almost half done!
We've decided to put the big tree up this weekend since we are having Christmas here.

We have a mouse or critter in the attic I need to feed decon before we go up
there to get the tree down and the boxes of decorations. I guess we should shake the boxes abit to make sure nothing has taken up residence in the. Altho the kitties might have a field day if they had access to a real mouse!

The pictures of snow looks really pretty.

No kidding!!!!!!!!!!

I hope it's just a small mouse so that after it eats the decon it can get back out and not die in the wall. We did not know what kind of an animal it was.

That is the most horrible experience EVER. I could not even sleep in here during the two week process of it's decay last year. Everything had to be stripped and washed to get the smell out. YUK! Not pleasant!

We've not had much success with traps. I really do not have the funds to call a professional to get it out.

I never thought about warm OJ. That sounds good!
Awwww, cute little birdie!

YUM. I love the peach flavor!

Jeanne,
I have to laugh at myself. I was tired, but when I went to bed I was awake. Before I laid down, I started counting backwards from 100. I realized I was thinking right past the numbers, but I was getting all the numbers. There's no quieting a busy mind till it decides, I think :o)

Gee 31 is beginning to sound warm! haha! Thank goodness it is not 1 or 16! The last time it got down to 16 pipes all over town busted...that was about 1989!

Went out today. It was 44 and that seemed cold. Picked up a few more things for my youngest granddaughter.

Dearest daughter is still sick with that upper respiratory infection. She sounds really bad. Please keep her in your prayers. She is seeing a Dr. and taking all of her meds.

Went out while ago and tried to clip the top canvas cover of the gazebo to the plastic. Covered most of the plants in there with sheets. Checked the temp when I got back in...instead of being warmer it was one degree colder in there. Oh well. Hopefully they'll be ok. I may try to find some bubble wrap to insulate it with.

Hope everyone is doing well!

18* now. High of 22* today at some point...yuk!

1 kitten gone, 3 to go. Norma was picked up Monday night. Might have homes for 2 more by the end of the week. Waiting for a call back. Think I will give them the "twins" (Norm & Two-Two).

Mom is doing fine now after her amnesia episode. That was CRAZY!

Staying indoors as much as possible - I hate the cold. Im still out in it several times a day - I'm a smoker and only smoke outside...so I get all "Ralphie-d" up when I go out.

Lost the post when we went to December - all caught up now I think. :/

Hope everyone is feeling better. More contact with germs because it is cold out and people stay in more. Hand sanitizer and wipes - wipe your cart/buggie/basket handles at the stores, door handles, light switches, keyboards, sink handles and steering wheel. Those are a few of the "high contact" areas.

It is supposed to warm up next week! Yeah!!!!!

I know about the hip hurting...yuk!

Glad you are able to find homes for the kittens, Minn.

Lucky you Pepper...no coat. Is it that warm or are you very brave?

More errands to run tomorrow. Youngest granddaughter will be here for the weekend. I forgot I need to hide things! OOps!

Highs around 40 and sunny til late afternoon. Then the cold front had moved thru and we could feel the threat of snow. But alas once again Mother Nature decided to laugh at me and kept the snow all up north.

TexasGal, it's a bit of both. With it being winter time now, 40 is pretty warm. 45 is almost hot this time of the year. lol. Normally I take a coat with me to have on hand just in case something happens but I forgot it and the temps didn't bother me so it worked out.

I'm passing this on because it worked for me today. A doctor on TV said that to have inner peace we should always finish things we start and that we all could use more calm in our lives. I looked around my house to find things I'd started and hadn't finished. So I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, tha mainder of Valiuminun prscriptuns, an a box a chocletz. Yu haf no idr how fablus I feel rite now. Sned this to all who need inner piss. An telum u luvum.

Last night our power went out for three hours. Today our internet was off all morning. I wrapped more gifts, read a few flower catalogs and shouted with delight when I realized we were back online.

77°/59° mostly sunny...

Well I'm back from my northern camping trip in North FL. It was hot there the first three days (we were in shorts and flip flops), then a cold front and dipped to upper 30's one night, but steadily climbed back up. Had fun walking around and looking at all the lights, especially watching the laughing children playing in fake snow and riding in horse drawn sleigh singing Jingle bells. Didn't get to wear my fuzzy boots...just didn't get cold enough. Luckily no rain, just a misty day on Wed. when the cold front came through, but once we got home on Sunday night it rained ever since off and on...so guess we lucked out.

I had some catching up to do and have to laugh at ya all thinking 30's is warm and being cheated out of winter...but know the feeling...it is to be in the upper 70's here all the way until Christmas and I have lots of cookies to bake...just hard to do when it is so warm outside...but we are doing a homemade Christmas this year and everyone wants cookies and some salsas and pepper jellies...so I'm gonna be busy sweating in the kitchen for the next week...ugh!

Oh Country Gardens...thanks for snow pictures and your kitchen looks wonderful...how I'd love to have new cabinets...my kitchen is wonderfully decorated in early 80's...ha ha.

We've redid a lot of those 70's cabinets. Some have good cabinet bodies & very poor doors & drawers. We replace the doors & make new drawers with up to date hardware. Look real nice when done & only a fraction of the cost.

Rain has ended here for now. It was raining hard in Mankato. We sure needed it. Someone above is taking care of us!

Our cabinets are shot all around...We've redone the floor and gotten new appliances, but that's as far as we have gotten. Made repairs to drawers - no hardware to worry about. More drawers to fix. Yet another project on the long list. Bathroom vanity needs to be done too. On top of it - multiply everything times 2...we own a side by side duplex. At least with the rental, we can write everything off. :) So fix up that side, then move over there and fix up this side. 100% write off that way :) Right?

Some clouds this morning will give way to generally sunny skies for the afternoon. Winds WNW at 20 to 30 mph.

Sunkissed,
Laughing, having grown up with snowy Christmas's I don't think I could handle a warm one. Certain cloudy days bring making cut out sugar cookies to mind. You are going to be very busy in the kitchen, but neat idea and everyone will love their gift! Next year you will be on guard and can make it all earlier.

I'm glad your camping trip was a good one!

LOVE the green tree!

Bernie,
I love your kitchen is beautiful! Your work is just beautiful!

Pepper,
One of these days you are going to get your wish. It's funny tho. We often have no snow for Christmas, which makes the lights we hang look out of place.

Minnesippi,
We won't even discuss my kitchen!
I love duples houses! We have one in town and I was in it when a friend was babysitting there. I was fascinated with all the rooms!

Jeanne,
Grinning over the AC as you do Christmas :o)

I went to DD's yesterday and sneezed and blew my nose past the kids on my lap. If they don't get my cold I'll be suprised, even tho they all gave it to me first.

And it rained all day. We even had thunder once. DH said our power went off again, but not as long, and the internet came back on.

Beautiful day - mid 40's right now I think.
Up @ 5 from a kitten throwing up :( He's fine, but I've been up since then. We started a puzzle last night for family night. I was TOLD to stop at 11:17 last night...literally pulled away. Guess what I have been working on since 5:15 this morning?? :)
First, coffee, then to figure out why the kitchen outlets didnt work on the south wall only, but the lights did. Reset all the GFI's in the house and on the breaker box, unplugged the 2nd coffee pot (for cocoa water for the kids) and VWA-LAA - coffee brewing (thank the Lord!) Laundry loads every 40 minutes or so and I finished the puzzle about 20 minutes ago. Both kids helped a bit today with it - so I didnt get in trouble for doing it all myself :) Hubby watching the Vikings game, working on DD's Zune.
3 more loads, maybe 4. Got everything vacuumed yesterday (then someone decided to brush the dogs...really?), floors washed in the kitchen & living room, bins of christmas stuff put in the garage to get them out of the way, baseboards, appliances all cleaned, kitchen dusted, catboxes cleaned. Cleaned the kids' tub 5 or 6 times - one of the kittens is using it :( :P~ Better that than my bed though. Hope that has stopped for good.

WHO WANTS A KITTEN?!?!? UGH! Time to put an ad up at all the local vets. Petfinder classifieds isnt working and I think if I post it one more time on FB I will lose all my friends :)

Need to get some wrapping done pretty quick here or I will end up doing it 15 minutes before everything is unwrapped! Maybe I just put bows on shopping bags? ;)

I am SO ready for spring! 6 more months to go... :/

Sunshine all day today! Only in the low 20's though.

We may get a dusting of snow late the 24th and over night...and thats a pretty big might.
Guess it will be a brown Christmas. Last one was in '06 and '00 before that. Looking like a 5 or 6 year pattern, huh?

No Kwanjin, those temperatures and normal for our 2200 foot level on the Big Island, 70s is normal, 80's we consider hot.

Today was just great, a bit cloudy but some sun and a slight breeze. At 4.20pm its 70f. Forecast says breezier tomorrow but should be back to a night and morning showers tradewind pattern with a drying trend during the day.

Mike, sorry about the mix-up. I meant the rainfall amounts.

We might finally get some of our own snow tomorrow by evening time.

25º now and foggy. Again. Still.

Hey there Mike and welcome...nice to get a weather report from HI. 120 inches of rain...wowie!

Minnie, I'm always wrapping on Christmas eve, just to watch them ripped open less than a few hours. Stores should just give pretty Christmas looking bags with your purchases, then we wouldn't have to wrap anything, just hand the bag over...lol. Do you still have the last kitten?

Adina, Nicholas is adorable...I checked out your picasa pics, lovely family. I love the St. Nicholas Day decorations in the pictures. My youngest son, age 20 is named Nicholas. He goes by Nick.

Well no snow here...I'm baking cookies today, made all the dough yesterday, got on my tank top, shorts and flip flops...LOL. 60° this morning, that is warmed up from mid 50's the past five mornings. Gonna climb 80 today and should be the pattern until Christmas eve. A wee bit cooler on Christmas day, only up to 76. ☺

Since I probably won't get back on here again before the big day...I wish all my weather friends a very Merry Christmas...and SNOW! ☺

White Christmas, don't need it!
Millions of people traveling. Look what happened in SW US.

One year I was working on a farm 5 miles from our home. Blizzard came up Christmas Eve day. I didn't get home until the 26th. Really sucks when you have 3 children at home & can't enjoy Christmas with them!

Sherri - we have 2 kittens left. "Norm" and "Two-Two". TRYING to have them gone before the new year.
Managed to get everything - yes EVERYTHING - wrapped last night. DH took the kids on a "mission" to the store for my gift and I wrapped like a banshee. Got everything ready and after they left, I couldnt find my tape dispenser...so I got out the tape strips and fought with that thing the whole time. Why is it that when your hands are full, trying to hold the wrapping paper on without sending the gift flying across the table because it is a weird shape, you pull a piece of tape from the thing and it doesnt pull up another. Good grief.

A little warmer today - mid 20's - still no snow in the forecast. My driveway and snow blower are thanking me. Not sure the driveway can handle another winter - (adding to project list for next season I guess). If I could get away with it, I would just leave it all class 5 - unfortunately, that wont work.

Merry Christmas to those who are "leaving us" until after the holiday. :)

Heavy rain showers this morning with sun trying to push through the overcast at times.

The rainfall totals are normal for us. The last few years have been dry with less than 100 inches a year. Our historical average is 200 inches a year but we have not seen those totals in the 20 years we have lived here. We are in a rainforest area and one of the wettest in the islands. There is a spot on Kauai that is much wetter. We have bright green moss glowing through the forest and streams rush through in times of heavest rains and then dry up after three or four days. We are at the 220 ft level.The tradewinds blow the clouds against the sides of the mountain just below us at about the 2000ft so it is a little wetter there. It is neat to watch the clouds drift up the driveway when conditions are right.
We REALLY appreciate sunny days when we get them. Rubber boots and jeans are the clothing of choice, not shorts and slippers as is the vision of Hawaii. We have to drive 50 miles to find a black sand beach and sunshine.
This photo was taken a few weeks ago. It looked just like this again last Monday.

It's been warm here. It is supposed to rain tonight, then cooler temps.

I really wish we could have a fire in the fireplace Sat. Maybe if we do get rain everyday until then. Grocery shopping left to do...cleaning... wrapping is done!

We are having gumbo Sat/Sun so have to go get ingredients tomorrow. Will do kitchen floor tomorrow night...vac / dust Friday.

Still haven't put the tree up...may have to buy one already decorated. They sell them with lights already on them...???????? Why not decorated!

Merry Christmas One and All,

High of 26° in the forecast today.
We got a dusting of snow yesterday afternoon. Not even a ¼ inch - but oh man for the traffic accidents! Over the Hudson (WI) River Bridge, there were 5 - on the bridge. 3 EB & 2 WB. WHY WHY WHY and HOW do people who live in the north FORGET what snow does to the roads, what freezing temperatures do to the roads...We live in it 6-8 months out of the year. smh.
Well, that will be our snowfall for Christmas...no more in the forecast and temps in the mid to high 30's for this weekend. I may get a few cans of white spray paint and hit the yard :)

34 and sunny with early afternoon snow! Snowed for maybe an hour. Not quite enough to cover the grass, but enough to cause 52 accidents including a jack-knifed semi right up the street. 11" below average for snow fall this season. I foresee a high water bill this spring.
