Morning Mates, from a wet and dreary Pictou County. The good news is that I can already see the yellow/brown grass and fields turning greener by the minute, so maybe the leaf buds won't be far behind.....although they're talking about this rain turning to snow overnight, so we may wake up to white again tomorrow...
Had an awesome morning at the beach with Emma yesterday, she had more energy than I've seen in a long time and she enjoyed her free run as much as my friend and I enjoyed our long walk.
Tried out a new trivia last night "Live Wire" it's called, on a big screen with all sorts of audio-visual clues, songs, movie clips, old photos, and a puzzle with clues to figure out for extra points. It was a lot of fun, and we came in 3rd.
I will go back next week, but the hard part will be resisting the best french fries in town at the pub!
Good morning A sunny but cold morning here but warming up later today. I received an invitation to Orlando with a free room and transportation the only drawback I need to leave today. Actually it was from my niece who rented a condo for the week for her and her family and wanted me to come along; however it was too spontaneous even for me although I did give it some thought.
Donna…. you’re the trivia queen even in 3th place! I’m glad you and Emma enjoyed your day.
Have a great day everyone!

A sunny day here. Frost on the ground earlier but that is burning off. Today is my D/D's birthday. Where have the past 37 yrs went? She has became a wonderful woman, mother and wife. Very proud of her.
I slept in until 8:30am for some odd reason today. Guess I was tired. Need to get busy around here. We will be leaving tomorrow for the Cleveland area then to Canton, Ohio on Sat. We are taking the dog with us so he will need a bath sometime today. He loves to travel which is a good thing for us. Had hoped to take the motorhome but with gas at $4.00 a gallon it will be cheaper to drive the car and stay at a hotel tomorrow night. Plus the motorhome would not start so after the SIL did some investigation it has been determined that the fuel pump is out. He said he could fix it just don't know when right now. Don't need it until the end of May so maybe he can get around to it before then!
RD, the trivia QUEEN! Sounds like loads of fun.
Had a wonderful visit with my sister's Grandaughters last night, so much fun playin "Barbies"....we had one son only so playing Barbies brought back some fond memories of my first Barbie, that was way back when they first came out, I remember mine only came with a red one piece bathing suit, now they come with TONS of things!!
Sunny and going to be a nice day today, housework to do so better get at it!
Donna, sounds like you had a wonderful time with Emma, making memories that will last a lifetime.
Back after a day at the doctors'. Had an endo appointment and was not truly happy about that! To have some tests and see him back in a month. Other appointment was for RA infusion. Only took one needle stick this time! Last time was five! I did get to watch the girl stab other patients 2 or 3 times to hit paydirt!!!!
A sunny but cool day in NW Ohio. To get in the 50's. We have had frost the last few mornings, but don't know if it was enough to kill the vegetation. Wait and see.
Luanne, Bella looks and sounds like a real sweetheart. Hope she stops dragging around the bathroom rugs. At least she didn't chew a hole in it (yet!).
Not much happening around here. DH will be working 12 hours over the weekend. DD#2 has a busy weekend at her and fiance's cottage - new windows going in. DD#1 will be on call all weekend and is usually busy all weekend. So, maybe some scrapping and house cleaning for me! Ugh!
Hope all needing to feel better are and hope all the rest have a good day.
Good aternoon from sunny Florida. We could use a rainy day, but we get sunshine everyday instead.

Good afternoon from a muggy south Texas! Family is out mowing the lawn while I am still resting my laurels from surgery.
Tests came back from culture and sure as the world, someone or something at the hospital gave me a staph infection on my leg. Luckily it is not MRSA. Just plain old staph they tell me. Thank the Lord it was caught quickly (by me) and now on antibiotics to hopefully eradicate it before it can go any further. Makes me want to stay away from hospitals that much more!!! I was already a germ-a-phobe before!! If ever you are in the hospital make everyone WASH their hands before touching you.
In other news...I'm making my famous spaghetti for my Mom and Step-Dad. I think I was Italian in another life. No one can resist when I make my spaghetti! I'm putting my chefs hat on to give mom a break. Managed to get my laundry done last night and change my bed. I am making good progress. Won't be long now before I get released by the doc and go home. Oh how I miss the neighbor kids banging the basketball against my bedroom wall!!:-D
Well, I had better get busy chopping the garlic. The he-man in the house gets grumpy if dinner is not served by 6pm. Hope everyone has a great evening!!
