November 19...... Saturday night




Last night we got our first snow........ we didn't get much here......but enough to let us know that winter is coming.

The dogs remembered what snow was.....they scratched on the deck and ran around in the yard.  But didn't take long till they got cold and wanted back in.
I have been drinking hot tea in the evenings.....just need something warm I guess.  I got out my special Christmas mug.
I am busy sewing some pot holders and knitting dishcloths.. I will have pics of those soon. 
I hope everyone is making Thanksgiving plans....... we will go to our daughter's and have dinner with them.... I hope all the boys will be there !  They are so busy we don't get to see them much.
Do you have plans for shopping on Black Friday ?......... Not me... I am not fond of the crowds of people....and I am not much for shopping like that.  I pretty much have my Christmas gifts decided and they won't be coming from the mall.

Who is making their Christmas gifts ?......well, mine will probably not be home-made this year. 
One thing I am going to do in the New Year is keep up much better with my blog.  So......I may surprise you and be boring you with my blogging.    If you read my blog....please leave me a comment.....otherwise I don't know if anyone is reading this or not......
Thanks, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you all !

October 10th........

They say it is Columbus Day........ I liked it better when they left Columbus Day on October 12.         I finally realized that there is no mail today, after going to the mailbox 3 times.
This is Rollie...... Rollie went to the vet at 8am this morning....he is spending the day there.  They are testing him for Cushing's disease.... he has been losing weight...and drinking a lot of water....the tests for diabetes and kidneys were fine.....so they said this was the next step.  I hope he is OK and doesn't have to take meds for the rest of his life.

So the house is rather quiet today...

Autumn has arrived

The calendar says it is autumn.  I love the fall season....but  not looking forward to winter.

We don't have any pretty trees that turn the beautiful fall colors.....so.... this is the best I could do.  And we don't have a lot of leaves in the yard......because I only have one tree in the yard.  The trees here are the neighbors yard.
The tree on the outside of the fence is ours.......and it is about dead. They are coming sometime this fall to cut it down and haul it away.  All the old trees in town are slowly dying.  I hope that people will plant some new ones to take their place.
A roll-off in the driveway..... The guys that built the deck forgot to come back and pick up all the lumber from the old deck.... so...they finally brought out the roll-off to take that away before it snows....but now I am wondering......... they brought it.......and have not been back yet......do they think we are going to fill it up ???........NOT !
 Mushrooms....... these pop up in the front yard... then my neighbor comes over and picks them....he saut├ęs them in butter and eats them.... I don't know anything about mushrooms...but he is welcome to all of them in my yard.
My poor flowerbeds........they have been a mess all summer............ the MOSQUITOES !!!
so....after they DIE  - I can clean out all the flowerbeds and cut off everything... and try again in the spring.  Today is sunny............and they say rain tomorrow.
Have a good day.........Thanks for stopping by.

August..........how did it get to be AUGUST ????........... We have had quite a bit of HOT weather this year......and mosquitoes !!!!  ........they are crazy !!!  My poor flowerbeds..... it is a wonder the perennials  can even grow.... I am hoping for some cold weather so the skeeters will leave me alone so I can clean them out.


And...... I am launching into my "getting ready to move" phase.......this is going to be a long phase....and an ugly phase...... I do not change well.  Just ask my husband and friends.  LOL
One box and one room at a time.......that is the only way I know how to do this.  I have wonderful friends who keep encouraging me along.......and I do really thank them for that.  This is a process that I pretty much have to do myself. 
 So.......today the foyer looks good !
 You should have seen this linen closet before !
 Moved the mother-in-law to a small apartment in town........just a few of her things left to deliver
And an empty closet !.........that I haven't seen since we built the house.  I know not very exciting, but.......it is a start !

Busy, busy, busy

Just a quick post without a picture today.......
I hope your summer is going well.  We are working on our "plan C" house plans.  Been thru "A and B" and have made changes........so that brings us to plan C.  On the home-front I am going through things and de-cluttering.  Those of you who know me know that I like "stuff".... LOL....not quite to the hoarder level....but I sometimes feel that way.  I came from a family of "savers" and then they left this earth....and left ME all their savings....and I am NOT talking money ! 


So....as go thru boxes and drawers........ I find all sort of funny things. 


Off to work today and then back to my sorting ...........
I will keep you posted !

Building has begun




The other day they tore off the old deck.......both the top deck and the lower deck.  Can't believe how "wore out" that wood was........doesn't seem that long ago that we built it.....  
Poor dogs are so confused as to where their deck went !And  now they just about have the new deck built...... waiting for the cement guys to come pour a slab and then they will build the steps.

I got a picture on here !!!


Well, I finally got a picture to post !!!........
Now see if I can get a post on here..... Someone mentioned that I had not written on my blog for a long time....... I had trouble getting pictures on it and could not get my posts to post......so  this is sort of a test run to see how it goes.

The cat in the picture.......is Tiger Lily.......better known as "Ti - Willwee"   She was quite the girl !!!  She passed away several months ago....... I still think she will come around a corner.... She was almost 18 years old.

Still have 4 cats and 2 dogs...........
Let's see if this post shows up.
Keep your fingers crossed !
