How was your Day #375, Come on over...

Lyndonville, NY

Good morning.... We came from here:

I saw we were getting pretty high on posts so started a new thread.

Come on in, sit and chat. Tell us about yourself, your dog...your cat.

Bring some coffee, or some tea....don't forget a snack for your fur-baby!

Yeah...I was up all night, rhyming is done! lol

Where is the time going I swear it is going faster and faster!

Don't have much time right now. Dishes to do again. Laundry to finish. So won't be able to reply to all of yesterdays. Just know I agreed, sent hugs and cried or laughed with you. Might not do much better tomorrow. We will have to do the banking and shopping. I work Monday as it is inventory and the Manager has a meeting to go to. Have Tuesday off and work the rest of the week. Not happy with it but it is the way it is.

Will try ti get back today.

Sorry Deb breakfast was just a bowl of cereal!

Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

Vicki, better than at my house, just coffee here!

Finished the vacuuming, took the garbage out to the road for collection today, and just now had a nice shower, washing my hair, shaving legs, etc. I call that the works.

Have the front door open and the sun is really pouring in. Mr. B is laying in the sunshine, happy as a lark.

DGD called and since we both have snow and she is not experienced in driving in it, she said that her DM was urging her not to come down this weekend. I agree, but think the roads should be clear early afternoon. She lives on a little side road, and she was worried about that. Won't interfere with DM's suggestion though.

Jim Falls, WI(Zone 4a)

BonnieB if she takes it slow and easy she should be okay on that side road. But she'll do what she is most comfy with.

Sun is shining here but it is not warming it up any.

Dishes done. Need to wash down counter tops and stove and table. Then on to the laundry.

My office assistants have been quite restless lately. Pixel just has not been of any help lately. Truffles came in after a long lunch and is doing some paperwork on my desk. :-)

Thanks for the new thread Debbie!

Lyndonville, NY

Now that sounds like Daisy, she just about knocked the monitor on the floor and I grabbed it just in time. She is about to get her own collar....
she is naughty.

It is with an extremely heavy heart I tell you my darling, sweet Quill passed away in my arms early this afternoon. My heart is breaking. While I am so glad my sweet girl is out of pain I am going to miss her so much.

Lyndonville, NY

Sending hugs, I am so sorry for your loss.

Rest in peace sweet girl.

Lafayette, NJ(Zone 6a)

Dianne, I am so sorry. (((HUGS)))

Lafayette, NJ(Zone 6a)

I made it through a whole day of work. I almost called in again. It was such an effort to get ready to go out. i'm so pooped. It is so cold out there today and we got a dusting of snow. I had over 2000 emails and 70 voice mails. I haven't called anyone back yet. I think the antibiotic started working last night.

My wrist/hand is still really painful. Got very painful with all the emails and writing today. I wonder when I will be able to knit. I'm guessing I will need to see a specialist.

I guess I will make a little dinner and recline.

Lyndonville, NY

Elsie, I made broccoli cheese soup and it is so good. Come on over and have some, I will even put you in the recliner!

Lafayette, NJ(Zone 6a)

Will your recliner come and get me? It's dark now and I don't drive well at night.

Bartlesville, OK(Zone 6a)

Oh Dianne my heart breaks with yours. I am so very sorry to hear this.

Love and Hugs to you ♥

Denton, TX(Zone 7a)

Dianne..I am so sorry about Quill! All day I have felt something was wrong, and now I know..I will light a candle for her...

Verona, ON

Thank you everyone. I so appreciate your concern. Diesel is quite subdued tonight. He keeps going to her quilt in the bedroom, he just looks at it then walks away.


Verona, ON

Diesel is really subdued tonight. He keeps going into the bedroom to look then paw at Quill's quilt. I am not sure if he is just sensing my emotional state or what. I actually think he knows she is not coming home. Maybe I am reading something into his actions but I don't think so. Cats are clingy but again I don't know if that is because they sense my emotional state or because the winds are picking up again.

Do hope your meds are working for you Elsie. How many sick days do you have left?

Oh Debbie that soup sounds delicious. Think I will make Cream of Cauliflower or maybe Mushroom tomorrow.... sounds like it is going to be that kind of day.

Managed to drop a fair sized log on the top of my right foot this afternoon. The log popped out of my hand and went directly down to my foot.Of course my feet were very cold so it hurt more than it usually would. Quite the bruise starting there and some swelling. Diesel is trying his best to get at my foot to lick it but it hurts for him to even breathe on it right now.

Going to check out the recliner .... I am almost afraid to sit in it because I think I will fall asleep immediately.

When is it Andre comes home Sandy?


Denton, TX(Zone 7a)

This morning I sat at the computer and had my glasses on..things were really blurry thought something was wrong..then I noticed that the glases were not mine! Somehow I got a hold of Phil's glasses...

Lyndonville, NY

Dianne, I think your feelings regarding Diesel and the cats are spot on. They know and can sense, and I think Diesel really knows. He has been so
cautious with her most of the time. It is just natures way of helping them cope....and you too.

I have never had cauliflower soup but that does sound good.

Flight chart shows DH's plane has left Jersey and is in the air. After DS being home most all day he said "Dads coming home tonight?" and guess what...
he isn't here again. I think he knows my love...even though I am totally ticked at unconditional. He does not know that or feel that with his dad...and
see's how his grandmother treats others. He is waiting for DH to "cut him out of the picture" and has even asked if Grandma cut his picture out yet. SAD!!!

Jacksonville, FL(Zone 8b)

Dianne Andre is coming home next Friday. I get a message on FB for the kennel owner that Andre has a Belgian Mal. to hang out with and he is loving it.


somewhere, PA

Dianne - so sad to hear you had to say goodbye to Quill. I'm sure you were very distracted and that's why you dropped the wood. Now falling asleep is not a bad thing dear. You need rest more than just about anything.

Loretta - sorry it was a rough day back. My mom had to give up knitting for a few years due to problems with her wrists. She primarily does machine knitting these days. I hope it doesn't come to that for you 'cause those machines are way more complex than I could deal with!

Debbie - I hope your son figures out that the best way to deal with issues is not to avoid them. I would not want to be his age again for anything.


Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

Good evening.

Dianne, I am just sitting here crying my eyes out. I have never lost a pet that I am/was so close to, so just dreading the day that it happens here. When I fall in love with a pet, they get my whole heart, and I am sure that I will just be devastated. Sending you big hugs, and a shoulder that can withstand days of crying.

Elsie, it sounds like carpel tunnel, and if so, a brace helps, but my chiropractor helped me with that issue several years ago. I have a friend who had the surgery, and it worked for about a year, and she is now having issues with it again. I am glad that the antibiotics are beginning to work, and with the weekend, I am hoping that by Monday you are almost good as new. We need to start a club for the "old folks who don't drive after dark club". I could be a charter member!

Debbie, isn't it so sad that the DS feels that way. I could tell you tons of stories about my DH and DS and the criticism and never a kind word to him, but to his nieces and nephews, yep, jolly and cheerful, loans money, but with their own, I guess it is high expectations and disappointment that rules.

Melva, guess you thought your vision had really changed over night. I have never made that mistake. I take my glasses off and put them in the same place every night. If I didn't it would be a very blury hunt to try to find them.

Went out to eat tonight, but lately, every time I eat, I get so bloated that I am miserable, even if I only eat a small amount. Might be working on an ulcer with all the confusion and turmoil swirling around caused by DH's family.

Well, more snow predicted for overnight and early tomorrow. I really need to go out to town, but will wait to see what the conditions are.

Denton, TX(Zone 7a)

I have never tried cheese and cauliflower sounds good. I may do it soon. I have a turkey breast I need to cook tomorow. I have felt 'off' today, not sick but, different. Think I may go to bed early tonight.
I got an order of plants yesterday..mainly salvias and one butterfly bush...I need to repot them and get them out of the tiny pots they came in. and I need to plant the rest of the onions.

somewhere, PA

Good night everyone.

Balotesti, Romania(Zone 5a)

Good morning! I'm up very early today, but maybe because I went to bed early last night. I have been doing this very often lately when I have my days off, even if I would like to stay late and maybe watch a movie. I wish I could go to bed early like that during the week, when I'm working, but somehow sleep doesn't come that easy...I think I'm more relaxed when I'm at home and that might be the reason. I did nothing but rest yesterday...and cooked also. I got a huge turkey on Friday from some neighbors in our vilage. They have a farm and grow lots of chickens , hens, turkeys and pigs. It's convenient to buy meat and eggs from them because they are good products, with no chemicals in it and they let us pay on the paycheck day.The turkey has 24lbs and it was still warm when we took him. I've butchered him and put the packages in the freezer. I cooked yesterday a leg and a thy which I roasted in the oven and I also made a sour soup with a part the back. Both were delicious!

Dianne, I'm so sorry that our Quill past away...we will miss her so much here! Sending you hugs and prayers, sweetie. I'm so glad you have Diesel to take care of you! Take care with the leg....I hope you put ice on it. Hugs and love!

Debbie, thanks for the new thread and the gorgeous picture of our Izzy! I know what you mean, my DS also takes me for granted...he knows my love is unconditional and his Dad is like Paul...conclusion is that we are suffering more! Glad to hear the wind isn't blowing so hard. Sending you hugs.

BonnieB, I hope it's not ulcer that's causing you such distress with your stomach. Is this happening when you're eating the food you cooked too?

Sandy, I'm with Debbie. Try and stay still. Did you find a book to read? Maybe you can watch a movie too. Many hugs!

Elsie, good to hear the antibiotics are kicking in. I hope you can feel better soon. Good thinking, go to the doctor with the hand.

Tam, sounds like it will take a lot of time for remodelling your kitchen, but I'm sure it'll be great. I had to google "galley kitchen" and see what that I know, I always had a galley kitchen!LOL The one I have now I almost the same, except for a might call it an L kitchen. Anyways, I never had so many cabinets, on both walls - only on one wall. More cabinets is awsome!

Melva, already planting onions? I might do that soon too if the weather is still warm. Now I need to learn more about trimming the trees and do that myself.

Vicki, I hope you have an easy shift at work. Try to not work so hard. And slow down a bit, you're making me dizzy!LOL

I've been alone until a few minutes ago when my DS got up too. He is working second shift today. He came to take his coffee.. I made it and had mine an hour ago while I was reading your posts. Time to take another cup!
Clear sky and buds on the cherry tree. A tomato soup with dumplings I cooked 2 days ago, for whoever needs it. And a small nasturtium salad. I had them growing in a pot and they were getting too leggy, so I decided to pull them out and make a salad with the leaves.

Good morning everyone one.
I am trying to be still and I have read books, watch movies and played games and now I am bored!!!
I do need to get moving as that was the orders beside I am gaining weight. I am trying to keep the food intake down but I can feel the new pounds adding on.

Good Morning

Adina - I think its so interesting that you would make a salad of nasturtium leaves. I've eaten the flowers in salads but hadn't realized you would eat the leaves too. THose are lovely photos! Nothing beats a blue sky to pick up the mood.

I finally took care of some bills this morning. Got up early worrying about how much stuff I need to get done. We're visiting the cabinet maker this morning and then I need to focus on the flower show this afternoon. I've got bulbs in cold places to force and its time to pull them out and get them warmed up and going. And lots of materials to write up & send out for review as well as volunteer sheets to put together, distribute and post on our website.

Its cold today. We're keeping the barn shut up an extra few hours so it stays warmer. The chicks are all doing well. They will be wanting out of the box soon. Mom is getting out of the box and the chicks are flying up in the air a few inches when riled. So it will be soon and I hope they will be ok in the cold. I guess with the heat lamp set up and mom to crawl under they will be fine either way.



somewhere, PA

Hi Sandy! How's your mom handling your down time? I bet you will be soooo happy to be moving again.


Jim Falls, WI(Zone 4a)

Up early reading your many posts and was so sad to see Dianne's Quill pasted.

Dianne sending you many hugs and will add my shoulder to BonnieB's. Just holler if you need us. So sorry about wood falling on your foot. I know how much that can hurt especially on top of everything.

Better go so I can get ready to leave. Will try to come back when I get home.

Lyndonville, NY

Good morning,

Woke up to a gentle snow falling, very pretty but cold!

Sending hugs for Dianne, I hope you were able to sleep last night.

Adina, great pictures! I also didn't know about the leaves for salad. The things we can learn.

Having my first cup of coffee, DH is home and he got up when Izzy barked at 6:00 so I had a bit extra sleep. Now
we need to get going for "Super Bowl" party shopping. Oh joy. Everything on my plate I have been avoiding! lol

Waving to everyone, enjoy your day....


Jacksonville, FL(Zone 8b)

Tam DM did try hard. LOL And I am already up and moving but not enough.


New Smyrna Beach, FL(Zone 9b)

Good morning. Waiting to take Wayne to the airport this morning. Then return rental car. Next have breakfast with Connie - she will take me to the dry cleaners and a jewelry store for pick ups. Then home to meet Margarita who will help me work on the sale and then clean this house.. I'm tired already.


Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

Good morning, snow is falling here also. Don't know when it started but they are predicting snow until late afternoon. It is still okay, so I need to run to town, so will get that done, then won't care if we are snowed in.

Adina, your pictures are so pretty. I bet that turkey did taste really good. Glad that you froze it so that you can enjoy more of it later. Yes, seems like when I even eat my own cooking, I am having stomach issues. I am hoping it is just stress, and that it will go away when things calm down around here. DH is helping his nieces with his DB's estate, and it seems that he gets stressed, and then passes it along to me.

Dianne, I didn't comment on your foot, but I sure hope that it is feeling much better this morning. Diesel just wanted to make his mamma feel better by wanting to lick your foot. Good boy.

Vicki, hope your day goes well.

Tammy, wow, you have a very full day. Hope that you get other ideas for the kitchen while out and about. If I were closer I would volunteer to help with some of your work with the flower show.

Elsie hope you are feeling much better when you wake this morning.

Melva, get the right glasses this morning!

Sandy, even if you are up doing nothing, it is better than being down with plenty of reading and stuff to occupy you. Just nature's way of making us get up and move.

Debbie, happy Super Bowl shopping. We are not doing a thing for it, no guests, so no special foods.

Well, need to get started as the snow keeps falling and it won't be getting any better driving weather with me sitting here.

Waaaay Down South, GA

Thinking about you and sending my love, Dianne. I bet Quill is having fun with Kota now that they're not in anymore pain. I'm so glad you have Diesel to hang onto during this difficult time. I believe God sent him to you just like my Moses was sent to me.
As always, hugs&blessings ... ~Susan and of course Moses too!

Jim Falls, WI(Zone 4a)

Dianne Susan is so right she is up there playing with our furbabies and getting to know them. I am so excited that she gets to meet Dawson. How are you doing? Not good I know so sending afternoon hugs and puppy kisses from Ty.

Well that couch is out. The leather is not very thick. I don't think it would stand up to Ty's claws. But it is a good idea and I think I will do some more looking. We checked out Tv's and I think we found one we could maybe agree on. I don't like how they blur when the picture changes? It seems to be normal as they had all the tv's on and some were worse then others. No hurry to make a decision on that.

Leesburg, FL(Zone 9b)

Hi Ladies.... just got back to Daytona Beach.

I'll have to catch up later.

Cruise was great, good weather and way too much to eat.

just letting you know I'm back... sort of.


Jacksonville, FL(Zone 8b)



Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

Terese, glad the cruise was good. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

It has been snowing here all day. The church where I was supposed to preach tomorrow called this morning and they cancelled services for tomorrow. We have also cancelled services. I have been cooking all day. Tomorrow's meal and then something for supper tonight.

When I am bored I clean and cook. I am saving some organizing jobs for tomorrow because I am sure I will be bored to tears.

Lafayette, NJ(Zone 6a)

Terese, glad the cruise was good - can't wait for pictures.

BonnieB, I have carpal tunnel - I had my right hand operated on years ago. This doesn't feel like that. I'm trying to ice it today. And I have been wearing my splint.

It is snowing lightly here - but it's sticking. I have had about 4 naps today. It's amazing how quickly I am out.

somewhere, PA

We really liked the custom cabinet maker. So hoping he's affordable!

Snowing and COLD here.

BonnieB - sounds like you'll have your sermon ready for the next time.

Welcome back to land Terese!
