    Good morning all,

    It is 40º already - heading for a high of 65º! Yippee!!!

    I need to run so I can fix breakfast and take Brent to school. I will stop back in a little later. This time change has me messed up...

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Hey Cuz! Where breakfast? :D

    Ann, I always got two shots for being RH negative. One after the baby was born and one the next time I got pregnant, even though all of my babies have negative blood types. Me thinks your friend may need a new OB.

    I have indoor work to do today and outdoor work. Indoors, I've just about gotten the mess cleaned up from replacing the TV, though T still has to hook the CD player back into the set up. I should be able to vacuum the living room floor! That is about it for housecleaning, thank goodness.

    Outside, I have to get the lawnmower running and mow the backyard (where the weeds grow). Sometime this week I have seed and weed & feed to put down back there. I also have bug stuff to put down in front and back and various piddly little things like raking the leaves and sweetgum balls out of one of the front flower beds and taking the weedeater to the monkey grass border. The thing about spring is that everything you don't want to grow comes up first!

    It's also time to think about Easter clothes, so I'm sure there will be plenty of sewing to be done as well, if I can decide what I want everyone to wear (I reserve this day to dress my children as I please, without regard to what they want to wear. :) ). If I don't decide soon, there won't be time to put it all together.

    Ya'll have a good day!

    AMEN!

    Good morning all!

    Spring cleaning turned into spring gardening. When you have days that are not too hot, not too cold, not wet, etc., go for it! Six of the seven vegetable planter boxes (they are five feet by eight feet, lined up against the outside of a pasture fence) have a new layer of aged compost in them, and four have the cleanings of the chicken house over that. One that just has the old compost layered got some lettuce starts, beets, chard and spinach transplanted into it from the winter garden and I even have attempted to transplant some very young carrots into it. Never heard of transplanting carrots before, but they were planted by Gina's oldest MUCH too close together to grow, so I scooped several dozen up and separated them (they are only a couple of inches high and not that long) and put them in the planter in between spinaches and in a spare space of their own. Got the tomatoes, melons and bell peppers started inside. Hoed out a good section of the fruit tree area.

    Spring is busy outside.

    In the meantime, a lot of the inside has been neglected so I have to discipline myself to stay IN and clean up in here. Got to get tax stuff organized for the accountant, too.

    Which is why BB doesn't see much of me in the spring!

    Geese are making constant noises overhead as V after V heads back north. Frogs are beginning to croak in the evenings.

    Spring is springing! For some reason the winter seemed especially long this year, and I'm very glad to see it over. We lost some stuff during the severe January freezes (severe for us, Jim, is mild for you, I know....LOL), so I'll find hardier stuff to put in place.

    But the heather is blooming, the crocuses are finished, the daffodils are starting and the hyacinth and grape hyacinth are doing fine. Green buds on many shrubs and the fruit trees will be in blossom soon. I love the promise of spring!

    Sue, enjoy your remodeling and please be patient with the mess. And, believe me, sometimes it takes a LOT of patience!

    God bless you all.

    I had an early fasting blood draw this morning. Will you settle for lunch?


    Good Morning Everybody,


    Right now it is 42 degrees heading for a high of 52 with rain. :thumbs:

    How about Farmhouse Chicken Dinner, Hot Biscuits, Sweet Potato Crisp, and Banana Pudding Squares?


    My Psychiatrist switched me to some new meds a little while ago, and I'm still waiting for them to decide to work. I still think meds have a mind of their own.


    Coming back from the Wild Game Dinner the other night we witnessed a Nocturnal Pharmacutical Transaction [english translation: a Drug Deal.] I called the sheriff's office and gave them descriptions of perps and vehicles. And to my surprise 4 cars were there within minutes. Why do perps think they can outrun cops? I have as much chance of outrunning someone as I do of being the next Pope [I can just see myself on dashboards all over America. :laugh: ]

    Prayer for Housecleaning: Please give me patience to accomplish my tasks, and give it to me NOW !!!


    Time to attack the chores - they've mounted a counter-offensive, but I think I have them surrounded.

    Lunch was fine, Cuz! I just made sure to eat enough that I made up for missing breakfast! :D

    My house is cleaner than I expected, I've made Chris up a study sheet for a test he has to make up (teacher helped), smocked for about an hour and picked up the girls from school. I still haven't made it out to the yard. I'm having myself a cup of tea before I head out for that. Cassie is going to put together the ingredients for Chunky Tomato Beef Soup. It only has five ingredients so it is something she can handle quite easily.

    Miss Jenna is not happy with me this afternoon. Her teacher sent me a note saying that she hadn't read her required amount of material and had to have it read by Friday. So she stuck in the house during this beautiful weather until she gets it all done. I tell you, it's not child abuse, but parent abuse!

    The tea kettle is whistling!

    I don't know Cuz, down here there is a form of Jasper Jungle fever that comes back and back and back and back and.......... :p

    I may not look over 21 but if you double that number you'll have my acutal age. :eek: Luckily enough though, at least I'm not a grandmother like some of the girls I graduated high school with. I'm way way to young for that! (nothing against grandmothers mind you, it's just that I'm not ready!)

    Speaking of jungles, if I don't get myself out the door I'm going to have one in the backyard in another day or two. The weeds are already ankle deep!

    Jasper Jungle Fever?

    Isn't the Jasper Jungle behind your house Cuz?


    Hope you're immunized. I understand Chicken and Dumplings have a hormone which prevents JJF.


    Immunization with Chicken and Dumplings is available as a public service exclusively in the Coffeehouse. More than one dose may be required to achieve total immunity.

    Good morning all,

    It is 48º and we're in for plenty of sunshine and a high of 75º today!!! It was 70º yesterday and it was beautiful!

    I've got to run, I'm making fried potatoes and eggs for breakfast, then I must run Brent to school and go work on the corner.

    HAGD!

    Good morning! I'm SO tired - although I got a good night's sleep. I almost feel like I'm sick but I don't think I am. I'll take it somewhat easy today - just do homeschooling and some laundry. I still have a bit of a headache even though I took the Imitrex yesterday so I have no clue what's going on. :( Bleck!! I hate having no energy like this!

    Ohhhh that sounds good. Did you make enough for the coffeehouse too? If you didn't I can throw something together but it won't be as good believe
    me.


    Good Morning Everybody,

    It is 50 degrees and sunny, headed for a high of 60. :applause:

    Since Sue was kind enough to make breakfast this morning it would be rude of us not to partake of the bounty. My making anything this morning would be like bringing a ham sandwich to a banquet.


    I was in a good mood this morning until I watched the TODAY show. They had an interview talking about raising step-children. GRRRRRR!!! I HATE THE WORD "STEP", AND NEVER USE IT!!!! My Wife had 2 children by a previous marriage. They are my Son and Daughter even though I did not adopt them[their natural Father wouldn't sign off] they are my Son and Daughter. Nobody wants to be near "ground zero" when I explode about this issue. To some it doesn't matter. To me it does. End of Rant.

    Next I took an online personality test as a joke, and the results said that I need to get in touch with my "feminine" side. Get in touch with it?, I don't even know what it looks like. Doesn't cooking count? Maybe they want me to only make petit-fors and cucumber and watercress sandwiches. LOL If I brought those into the Coffeehouse nobody would speak to me again.

    BTW Cuz, You're still a "Young Chick". I'm going to be 55 this year.


    Got to get some outdoor work done today, unless my Cuz, Sue, and Helen want to volunteer. I'll feed them if they do, or they can stop by Sue's first then show up.


    I wish I had one of those "smart houses" that all you have to do is let everything be done by a computer. The the old saying would be true: I can't even spell "engineer" now I r one!"


    I keep pushing buttons on the computer but nothing gets done. Guess I have a house that's not computer literate.

    Good morning everyone!

    Cuz, I'd rather be doing outside work than what I'm going to have to do. Chris has had a sore throat for almost a week so we are leaving in one minute to go get a strep test. Yuck!

    Hopefully I'll see you all later this afternoon, cause Chicken and Dumplings sound really good right now!

    I hope Chris feels better, and the test comes back negative.


    Don't worry Cuz the Chicken and Dumplings will be waiting for you. We'll see if they cure sore throats[ and possibly strep ] too.

    Good morning, all,

    I'm sorry, Rob, but I'm busy here today! Got to spray for weeds in the pathways, water the new pyracanthas (miniatures), clean up doggy doo (the dogs use the rose garden!!!), get taxes ready for the accountant (meant to do that a few days ago...), and do general housework. So with both inside and outside work waiting for me, I'm stuck here.

    This strange thing is happening as I get older. My hair is getting as wavy/curly as when I was a toddler! It used to be quite straight with some decent body through all the years in between then and now, and this is weird! It's also weird because I will be sixty next year and I don't have any gray hairs -- no gray hair genes for any of us girls in our family.

    I don't mind getting older. I don't like what it's doing to my body, but I don't mind the years. I just can't figure out how they went so fast. I'm so loaded with memories, but some of them seem just like stories I read somewhere now. I know it happened, and to me, but still, somehow, they seem less real than they used to. I really did have toddlers. I really did trudge buckets of water uphill to water new trees during a drought. I really did care that my dresses for high school formals matched the color of my boyfriend's car! Do you believe that?

    It's a strange thing, this piling up of memories. I've been married to Barry for over six years now, and if I look back, I can count what we did each year and what happened, but, my goodness, we only met just yesterday!

    God bless you all.

    That's okay Helen. I'm sure your yard and garden are much better than mine. Seems I have a "Black Thumb."

    That "strange thing" is easily explained. It's called
    "Second Childhood" and happens to all of us to a certain degree [except Jim - he's still sharp-as-a-tack. Must have something to do with Canada]. You're only in trouble if you ask for a glass of waa-waa, and refuse to eat your vegetables, or can't understand why you're out of money because you still have checks left.

    Now finish your milk, and go pickup your room. No talking to boys until you do. :laugh:

    Time sure flies doesn't it Helen? Seems like just a little while ago you were 14 and 3/4. :tongue3:

    Howdy!!

    Speakig of the passage of time . . .when I turned 32 I decided (accepted?) that maybe God meant for me to stay single. By the end of the same month, I received the first of many letters from the man I married 1 1/2 years later. Still here 9 years of marriage and two kids, ages 7 and 5, later. Most of those years have flown by. :thumbs:

    Will visit the Oncologist tomorrow and 'donate' a little blood to see how much the second round of Xeloda has worked.:praying: :godisgood: :praying:

    Good luck today, Gayla!

    Good morning all,

    It seems as if spring is busy everyplace. I haven't even had time to post much this week! I am working at the corner again today, so it will be busy as I also have to cook ham & beans for 40 hungry kids for tomorrow and bake cornbread (and of course dessert).

    I will make the ham & beans and Strawberry Delight dessert today and the cornbread in the morning.

    I really need to run, I've got a ham to get in the oven, Brent to feed and take to school, the corner to work, and a perm to get - all before 10:00 this morning...

    HAGD!

    Ohh, Ohh, Can I come too Miss Sue? You think you could feed 41?, 40 kids and 1 "big kid?" Ham and Beans sound sooo good. Do you need anybody to test the food before you take it to school? I wouldn't want something to not be right, and sombody get sick, and you get sued. I'm willing to sacrifice myself in order to protect you from potential litigation [didn't know I knew big words like that did you?]


    Good Morning Everybody,


    It is 65 degrees here and cloudy with some rain in the forecast.


    We're watching Sean this morning while his Mother has a doctor's appointment. He now has his braces on his legs, and goes in next week to have tubes put in his tear ducts. He rolls over, and can scoot quickly on the floor, he has great upper arm strength, and can pull his legs across the floor.


    He says "hi" to his adoring "cyber-aunts, Aunt Sue, Aunt Cindi, and Aunt Gayla. He hasn't met "Aunt" Ann or "Aunt" Helen yet but he's waiting to.


    Ann & Helen: Sean is the son of my former daughter-in-law and her boyfriend. He was born with spinal-bifida and is paralyzed from the thighs down. He is now just over 1 year old. Even though he is not related to us I still call him my Grandson.


    I brought in Chicken Enchilada Casserole and French Onion Beef Noodle Bake for lunch enjoy.

    Today is chores and more yardwork. The new starter we had put on the car stopped working and had to be taken off, returned and replaced at Auto Zone then re-installed.


    Sean is sleeping on the floor, and I'll work around him. His Mother had a 10am appointment, and might struggle back in about 2 or 3pm. We're used to this because we're right across the street from them and she knows we won't turn down watching Sean.
