Yes we are, Joyce. Never been there, but we have heard it's fun. I'm glad to hear it's a good place for exercise; I hope the weather cooperates. We talked to another couple who vacation at Gulf Shores and they said about 30 other people from this area also vacation there. So we may know someone.

Pam it sounds like you had a busy weekend but I'll bet it feels good to get so much done and to be so organized it's just too bad you had to give up a weekend to get it done.

Joann are you going to the Gulf Shores I hear it is beautiful down there I would like to go
some day my DD went a few days ago and loved it have fun it's a good place to get some good exercise.

Make this a great day!

You sure did have a productive day, Pam! That's a lot to do over the weekend, now you should feel pretty good about going into work today.

We are leaving for Gulf Shores, AL next Sunday. I've been looking at the temperatures and it's in the 60's so that in itself will be nice. It's also very rainy down there now, I see they are having a lot of flooding in MS and in AL, so hopefully the rain will quit before Sunday.
BIL and wife rented a condo and invited us to come for a few days. The pictures I've looked at shows a very nice place.
This Wednesday we head to Polk City to take care of Addy and Lochlan while their folks go to a wedding in Florida.
I'm just trying not to get sick with a cold or the flu-so I'm not subbing anywhere.

Have a good week!

We did get alot done yesterday. I am going to try to complete the cleaning and organizing today.
it is crazy how much dust the cotton fabric creates. I got my shop vac out to start cleaning under tables and pallets. We disassembled two machines and tables. We cut another table down and made two usable tables using the legs from the machine tables. I bet this sounds Greek but it was alot of work and we got so much done. We got 2 shop vacs repaired and working, as well. It was a productive weekend!. Mike changed the faucet in the shop sink so our leaks are fixed. We shouldn't need a weekend work session for a while.
Are you going to Gulf Shores Joann? That is a nice place. We enjoyed it. It was a whirlwind trip but we did enjoy it. The difference in the temperatures is amazing!
Are you ready for your weekend, Joyce? That will be a fun "get away" for you.

Have a happy day!

Oh darn, you have to work today! You deserve a day off, but with your extra work today you will reap the benefits later this week. 2022 will be here before we know it! Keep dreaming of retirement.

I see the temp at Gulf Shores is around 60, so that will feel pretty nice after being below 0 and feels like at -40 this past week.

I hope your Sunday is going well, ladies!

It sounds like you have a fun weekend coming up Joyce. It will be nice to connect with friends on a winter weekend.
Alabama sounds like a fun vacation. I have been to Gulf Shores, Al when my daughter goty married. It will be nice to soak up the warmth of the sun. I love reading about your adventures! You see so much when you explore along the way.

I am working for a while today. I need to prepare for the machines that will come in later this week. December 2022 is when I plan to retire so I keep that in mind when the extras pop up at work. I do have a goal!

Have a great day! It is warmer today. Enjoy!

Joyce, I'm glad you have a fun weekend to look forward to with your friends. That's really a recharge weekend for you, time to laugh and do a little work. We all need that kind of fun in our lives.

Pam won't it feel so good to get all of the nonworking machines out of there and to have the space to work in it is good to be busy all year around.

Joann it's good to have those days you do all the little things you usually put off till you have time it really makes you feel like you have accomplished something but that day with a good book sounds good to.

I am looking forward to my weekend even if I don't get much done it's always good company we have fun and getting away during the winter is a plus

Make this a great day!

When I saw the time you posted, Pam, I wondered if you were working today. You should get a lot accomplished if you and Mike are there alone. It's nice to be busy and it's nice that your business is busy. I hope you have a productive day at work.

Yesterday turned out to be another blustery, snowy day. The wind blew 40-50 mph starting about noon and the loose snow was really moving around. There should be some drifts today out here in the country. Thank goodness a lot of the snow was hard and didn't move.

I'm trying to get organized for our next trip. We leave Wednesday for Polk City to take care of the two grandkids until their folks get home on Saturday and then we are leaving for Alabama next Sunday. We will be gone for about two weeks total.

Let's hope today is much nicer than Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week.

I am getting my new machine next week and one other machine that will make my life easier at work. If I have to wait for the other one or two, that's okay. I am working today to organize my schedule and disassemble some of the machines and tables that are no longer functional. They take up space and I need that space for functioning machines. Mike will help me and we pay him for maintenance. It all works out. I look forward to semi crazy as opposed to totally crazy like it is now. We are busier than we have ever been in the winter. Consumer confidence seems to be high.
The weather improved over night and it should reach 40 degrees today. I think my sister may come p this afternoon. She wants to go out to eat. We need to catch up. I haven't had a chance to talk to her for a couple of weeks. It will be a good afternoon and evening.

Have a great day!

That's crazy, Pam! I hope you get your machines so your life can be back to semi-crazy instead of totally crazy. A new machine sounds pretty nice!!

That's something fun to look forward to during this cold winter, Joyce. I'm glad the rest of the roads were good once you got off the ice. It's supposed to warm up next week.

I didn't read my book yesterday, I found other things to do that I don't usually have time for. Today we went to lunch at Dairy Queen-we are quite the romantics. It did taste good and now I won't have to make supper.

Enjoy the day! emoticon

The 3 miles to the interstate was pure ice but once we hit the interstate roads were good I have to go back in today and get some groceries I'll just ride with Randy and stop on the way home and hope it warms up next week.

Joann it sounds like you got alot more than we did I hope everyone made it home ok.

I do have a weekend crop next weekend I need to get ready for you would think with a week there should be no problem getting ready but we'll see if it really happens.

Stay warm and make this a great day!

It is -5 this morning but will start warming a little today. I can handle a day of cold here and there. The roads were not too bad. We got some snow on top of the ice for traction. That's a good thing.
Work is insane these days! I have 4 machines in the shop and one of them cannot be repaired. One of them is going to take up to 2 months to get parts from China or Japan. Long story short...I am getting a new machine to replace those two. the other two may come back with the new one. I should get them before the end of next week. It's a wonderful life!

Did you make it to your appointments okay, Joyce? I hope the roads weren't too bad. How was the book, Joann? That sounds like a nice day away from the weather and everything else.
Have a great day! TGIF!

Thank goodness this bitter weather is only going to last a day because it's terrible. -17 and feels like -43. We had a blizzard here yesterday afternoon and the county was under a no travel warning. The wind and snow came so fast after the front got here and boy did it play havoc on people traveling home from work.

I hope you have a safe trip, Joyce, to your appointment. I hope you made it to work ok, Pam. Be safe!!

I'm staying home all day, I have a book to keep me occupied.
Enjoy whatever you do.

Thank you, Ladies! I love my rings! Joann, it would be special to have those rings remade into something of your choosing! It keeps those ladies near and dear. Go for it!

We got a little wet snow that has frozen so we have ice. It should be melted by Monday. I know that some people don't respect hazardous driving conditions and drive like they are on dry pavement. Be cautious! Stay warm out there. It is frigid!

Have a great day!

What a beautiful ring, Pam!!! I love the shape and design. What a nice gift for your anniversary.

I have my mom and grandma's wedding rings and would like to put them together so I can wear them. Maybe I can do that later this winter or early spring.

We are to get snow, wind and bitter cold this afternoon and tomorrow. That -40 degree feel like with the wind is going to be crazy. We are to go out for supper tonight, but I'm hoping they postpone and do it another time.

I use the treadmill daily, and yesterday I also walked down the lane. It was just so nice and sunny out there, I wanted to get a little vitamin D.

Have a good day and stay warm!!

Pam the ring is beautiful enjoy it.

We are to get the cold cold winter weather and some snow and ice I just hope it is over before Thrusday or would just wait till after but I really don't think that is going to happen.

We really have nothing going on here if it wasn't for doctor appointments we would not being going anywhere. We are using the treadmill alot it was well worth what we paid for it now I don't have any excuse to not exercise.

Make this a great day!

Good Morning! I figured out how to get a picture of my ring on this thread without adding it to my profile. I used my tablet and set the ring on a dark fleece so it showed a little nicer. I couldn't use the tablet and take a pictures of the ring on my finger It looks like a pretty ring on an old hand. emoticon
I think we have some nasty weather coming. The snow won't be deep but the ice will be treacherous. The Farmer's Almanac said the groundhog is wrong. I believe that. All in all, I have seen worse winters. We still exercising inside.

Make the most of your day!

We have had decent weather here but that is suppose to change Wednesday and Thrusday sadly I have doctors appointments on Thrusday so will have to go out in it but I'm ok with that as long as it doesn't snow.

Pam it's good to hear your foot is better a bad foot can make life miserable but it sounds like you are getting better all the way around which is good.

Pam I grew up in Colorado and it is beautiful country I hope they get a chance to get out and see some of it.

Joann I imagine a school is a hotbed for germs and spreading the flu take care.

The heritage project is nice to have to work on but it is very time consuming.

Make this a great day!

You are going to be a new woman when you are feeling good again. Sometimes it takes forever to get that good feeling.

Yesterday I was subbing and boy are the kids and teachers sick. I took my Lysol spray and used Clorox wipes. I hope I don't have to sub again this week, influenza B is going around like crazy.

We are to get frigid cold Wednesday night and Thursday-they are saying -30 wind chill. I know I'm not going anywhere Thursday. But then it's to warm back up a little. I sure hope it does warm up and stays there.

That will be a nice trip for your son and family-fun time for Will. I hope they get to enjoy the area while they are there.

Have a great Tuesday!

My foot has been declared healed. The prednisone di do what it was supposed to do. The colds and sinus issues are just about cleared up. We are on the mend!

We are supposed to get some " measurable" snow tomorrow and Thursday. DS is taking his wife and youngest son to a convention in Colorado so I hope his journey to ST. Louis airport is safe as well as the air travel. Hi youngest son Will got a cell phone and is blowing our phone up with his calls so I know we will be kept up to date on the journey.
We are one day closer to spring and camping, gardening and spring cleaning. It sounds good to me!
Have a fun day!

I hope we get to see that ring, Pam. How special for you!

Your family heritage project is great! Isn't it nice to have that to work on each day.

It's a beautiful morning here in NW Iowa. Frosty trees, full moon and snowy landscape. And it's not windy yet. Just perfect for a winter day!

Enjoy the day!

Pam enjoy those rings and wear them with pride you have earned them.

The more I get into the heritage thing the more interesting it gets when I get on there I really have to watch the time because it flys and before I know it the day is gone.

Our weather here is like yours day by day yesterday was a nice day but we have snow in the forcast we just have to wait and see what each day brings.

Make this a great day!

That chocolate walk sounds yummy! I bet it was a boost for the small hops there.
The family tree thing will keep you busy for hours! I have started several times but have done very little! Have fun with that!

We were busy at times and lazy at other times. We picked up our rings. Mine are beautiful! I took pictures and share with my ladies at work. I did show a couple of ladies at church but have not put it on Facebook or anything. Around here, that is asking for trouble. I will try to get a picture of it on this thread but that's about it.

The weather is supposed to be warmer than colder. It is a day by day thing. We are just about done with the sinus issues and I hope the weather doesn't bring it back. My cough is about gone! Thank God!

Have a great day!

Joann the walk sounds like a fun way to get your walk in qudos to the sponsors and the weather was pretty good for February. It sounds like you could get some bad weather up there today. We are suppose to have a small warm up here before we get more snow so we need to get out and enjoy it.

We have no plans for the day after church it will be a lazy day if it gets as warm as it says it will we plan to grill out otherwise I want to put some time on our family tree we are at the point we are really having to dig for information it is very interesting what is out there.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and make this a great day!

Yesterday turned out to be fun and I got in a lot of steps too. After we checked in to the chocolate walk, we had a card with names of stores up and down the street that were having chocolate of some sort. We could do 10 stores to make it a day but we did all 24 stores. Oh golly, that's a lot of chocolate, so I had a bag to carry most of it home. All kinds of chocolate goodies were there, from chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate fountain, fudge, hot chocolate, cupcakes, monster cookies, chocolate covered strawberries and on and on. What a smart way to get people into your store to see what you offer. And the stores had sales, so people were buying as well.

Looks like we have several inches of new snow out there, right now it looks nice. But the wind is to pick up to 30 mph, so then it's not going to be so nice.

I hope you are having a great weekend! Enjoy your Sunday!

Having a start date does mean there is a ending date which is good and your right by then it will be time to start getting the camper ready so we can put all of this behind us they are all sure they got all of the cancer and the radiation is just a precaution so it should be done.

Joann I think subbing kindergarten would be one of the funniest age groups to work with. What is the chocolate walk your area sure seems to have something going on all the time maybe ours does too and we just don't know what it is.

Pam I hope you have a good weekend and a better week things can only get better for you after a bad week and hopefully you will both feel better.

It snowed here all day yesterday I don't think we got alot but with the wind it looked like more and was kind of pretty to watch.

Make this a great day!

Having the starting date for Randy's treatments is nice to know-then you can get started and over with. Going into Des Moines won't be fun, but hopefully the time flies and it will be completed. By then it will be almost spring and time to get the camper out.

Pam, there are those weeks where nothing goes right are the longest weeks ever. Hopefully you and Mike will be back to yourselves soon! Next week should be a good one!!!

I subbed in kindergarten today and after we had reading all morning, the kids had a movie which lasted quite a bit of the afternoon. So it was really a good day for me.

Tomorrow we are going to the chocolate walk in Spencer, and that's the most fun we are having all weekend. Sounds like a winter storm starting tomorrow night going through Sunday.

Hope you two are doing great today! I'm ready for chicken noodle and chili soups tonight. Yummy soup on a cold night.

I hope all goes well with Randy's radiation treatments. Everyday trips is not fun! Prayers and hugs for you two!
I am so glad it is Friday! This has been a long week with the sinus issues, the lack of equipment and several appointments. Too busy for me! I hope the antibiotic is working. he coughing is less frequent and less harsh. That's a good thing.
I hope you remain healthy and keep warm. Winter in Iowa can be....YUCK! We have missed the deep snow so far this year. I hope it stays that way!

Have a great day and a fantastic weekend!

The caucuses were a definitely a black eye for Iowa hopeful it will not affect the first in nation standing some time ago we watched a show on why we had a caucus instead of a primary I can't remember why but one of the biggest reasons was the financially benefits for Iowa.

We don't have any snow here yet I would really appreciate it if it would hold off for awhile I have to run some errends in DM this morning.

The coughing spells sound bad they can really wear you out I hope the antibiotics work for you.

Randy starts his radiation next Monday I already think the daily trips into DM will be a real pain in the rear but at least he can drive himself so unless he feels he needs me I won't have to go.

Make this a great day!

We are to get snow later today and overnight, but it doesn't sound like much. It sure turned cold though. It's only 10 degrees this morning and not much wind.

You have had that cough for a while now, it seems. I hope this antibiotic kicks it.
My son was to fly to San Francisco next week, but he decided not to go with all the sickness and Coronavirus people have. Sure is a lot of crud out there.



I hope we all have a great day!

I hope the bad weather stayed away from your area, Ladies. We got a dusting so we were fortunate.
I came home from yesterday and went to the doctor for my cough. I had coughing fits that took several minutes to get under control. I was checked for bronchitis but don't have that. I guess it is just sinus issues. I did get an antibiotic The sinus thing is new for me. I don't like it a bit! I had to reschedule one appointment and Mike got the taxes taken care of on his own. I had everything ready for him to hand the deductions information to the preparer. It was not bad! Anytime we don't have to pay is good news.

I hope your two are staying well and keep moving. Winter really bites!

Have a great day!

Still a little crazy with the caucus as the complete results are not in.

Isn't that the way it goes, every meeting comes at once and then other times you have nothing going on.

I'm subbing today...packed the Lysol and antibacterial wipes in my bag. There's so much influenza in the schools now and it's really hard on the kids. So it would be tough for an old lady :) I did have the flu shot so that may help. But I'm not depending on that.

Have a good day, friends!

I think Iowa got a black eye with the way the reporting went for the caucus. It is a little crazy!

I have two appointments after work today and one tomorrow. I think I get to pick up my rings Friday so the evenings will be busy this week. It all hits at once! We might get a couple of inces of snow this evening. As long as it stays at 2" it will be fine!

Have a great day!

I agree with you Pam I'm glad the caucus are over maybe we will get a little peace here in Iowa let the other states have everyone for awhile.

We have nothing going on here but that is good since we have no desire to go out in the cold.

Stay warm and make this a great day!

The big build-up to the caucus turned into a dud with no results this morning. I didn't go last night either. Why does Iowa caucus and other states do primaries. It's an interesting process though.

It's only 12 degrees this morning and wind is 20 mph, It was cold yesterday after the beautiful day on Sunday. The weekend made you feel like spring is coming.

All is good in NW Iowa!

Not much happening in my world either-sometimes that is ok. Have a good day!

Winter is supposed to return today. YUCK! Yesterday was 50 degrees. It would be nice to have that every day in Feb.
I'm glad the caucus is done. Maybe the political call will stop for awhile. I let the phone ring until the answering machine picks up. Mike went to the caucus but I didn't. He said it was a light turn out. The next few months will be interesting!

Not much is happening in my world. Machines are still broke, Mike still has his sinus infection and my cold is better. I hope you ladies are keeping away from the colds and flu that is going around.

Have a nice day!

What a beautiful day yesterday was almost 60 what more could we ask for in February I hope we all enjoyed it because we are back to our normal cold weather for Iowa at this time of year.

Pam the ring sounds wonderful I'm sure you will treasure it for years to come.

We did watch the game last night it was great to see one of our favorite teams go so far I'm just glad we do not have to go to Kansas City it will be crazy there for awhile.

Joann time spent with siblings can mean so much at this time in our lives it's amazing how many memories we share with them and how many more we can make one thing this journey into our ancestry has thought me is we need to appreciate those close to us before it is too late.

Make this a great day!

I hope you enjoyed the game. I didn't watch it. Me Bad! It is nice to make good memories with family. We haven't had the family all together since Mom passed.

We went to Quincy yesterday. I did get my anniversary ring. It has to be sized so I won't get it until Friday. It is two rings with one situated in the middle of another ring. It is beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I had a ring cut off of my finger. Arthritis has swollen that ring finger to about the size of a (I don't Know) sausage or smokie. It was Mikes original wedding ring. We are having it repaired and sized. He wants to wear that one again. Long story but I am okay with that! I didn't get pictures of my rings but when I do, I will add it to this thread.
It sounds like we are going to get cold again. Stay warm, my friends!

Have a hreat day!

I'm glad you are feeling better, Pam. But what to do with Mike! I hope he can get on top of this soon!!

We had a good visit with family yesterday. It's nice to get together with Terry's siblings, they actually get along and have fun together. We walked outdoors and enjoyed that time too and came home about 8:30 last night. Long day but good memories.

Maybe this afternoon we can get in a walk outside and enjoy this last day of above normal temps. Then we will watch the game this afternoon, for once there's a team I can root for. There's so hype about the half time performance, but I'm not thrilled about it.

Have a good day, friends.

I think my cold is to the point that it has to run it's course. Mike is still sick. He hasn't found the doctor that knows what to give him for the sinus infection. He has had two different antibiotics and they have done very little to take care of the infection and drainage and cough. It is beginning to wear on us.

I hope you enjoy your super bowl Sunday!

Have a great day!

Pam the ring sounds like a great way to remember such a milestone anniversary.

There really is nothing going on here this is the time of year that not much is happening except high school state wrestling and basketball tournaments but spring is not far behind.

Make this a great day!

That sounds so nice...after 50 years you deserve a special ring.

We are heading to Redwood Falls, MN, to spend the day with hubby's brothers and sister. We will come home tonight and not stay overnight. The others are staying for the night, but I guess we are tired of being away so decided to spend the night in our own bed.

Have a good day, friends! Looks like it's going to be a warm one. Next week winter returns, but until then, let's enjoy!

That's a very special remembrance ring for you, Pam. What would be included in your ring? Do you do birth stones or would it be full of diamonds. :)

I have lunch with a friend today. I thought we would go out, but she wants to do toasted cheese sandwiches and tomato soup at her house.

Have a good day, not much happening here either.

Chicken noodle soup sounds good! I do feel a little better today. I took Benadryl for allergies and it helped with the cold symptoms. The head cold acts like allergies sometimes. I do feel better. Not good but better.

There isn't much new here. I am going to take care of my cold tomorrow but going to Quincy on Sunday to look at anniversary rings. I really want one to commemorate the 50 years of marriage. I have been looking alot. We will see what happens.

I hope each of you stays well! Have a great day!

Head colds are awful! I hope you get over that one sooner than later. How about some chicken noodle soup!

Glasses are sure expensive! This last time I just got the lenses and it was over $300. I kept the frames since they were in good shape. But having no-line bifocals makes for expensive ones.

Today I'm going to a specialist about putting in an implanted tooth...doesn't sound fun.

Well, I should do something this morning, I just finished the treadmill and this afternoon I'll be gone. So let's see if I do anything.

Have a good day, you know with all this fog we've been having, it's going to be a very wet end of March and April.

My appointment went well I don't need new glasses which is nice they can be so expensive and Randy's was just prepration so it was just time consuming but we got groceries and were home at a decent time so all is well. We are so fortunate his cancer was no worse than it was and they have been able to control it so many others have not been so lucky. I hope your appointments went as well Joann.


Pam It's good to see you are relaxing head colds can be a pain in the rear take care.

Our son leaves this morning it was a good visit but is time to get back to our normal routine and he will be happy to get back home.

Make this a great day!

The end of January is here! Time flies! I hope all doctor visits went well.
Sewing machines have been shipped and will get repaired. I hope 3 out of 4 will be simple. The one is obsolete so it will take longer. Parts are harder to find. We may have to trade it for a newer model. At any rate, there is always prep work to do with the machines that we have. There is always a back log of work.

I have caught a head cold so I am relaxing in the evenings. Too many colds popping up this year!

Have a great day!

Joann your week sounds alot like mine Randy has a doctor appointment today to set up his radition treatments make his mask and talk to a dietitian so who knows how long we'll be in there then I have an eye appointment so it will be a day of doctors. The good side is I would rather go to the eye doctor than the dentist I feel for you Joann.

I'm hoping to get done early enough so we can stop and get a few groceries I hate the thought of having to run back in tomorrow having no grocery store is one of the draw backs of living in a small town.

Pam it sounds like work will be challenging for awhile but I'm sure you will handle it better than most.

Make this a great day!

In life, we are dealt lemons from time to time. My sewing machine mechanic didn't have a loaner. With any good luck, they will be back here before mid February. The necessary sales and management has been notified. When we have these issues, we get the busy work done and I hone my sewing machine mechanic skills. It is interesting!
I hope your appointments and lunches goes well, Joann. You are one busy lady!

Joyce, enjoy your visit this week with your son. That time is precious!

Have a happy day!

Joann you definitely sub alot it's almost like working full time but at least you can not work when you want enjoy the rest of the week with your plans.

Pam it would be a little hard to work without enough machines for everyone I hope they have one to loan you.

We are having a good visit with our son I really do enjoy the 1 on 1 time with any of them but it is hard to get that with everyone's schedules.

Make this a great day!

I'd rather sub than go to the doctor for hubby or to the dentist, Pam. LOL!! Then Friday I have plans to have lunch with a friend and a hair cut after that. So it's not too fun of a week. We are at the age when we get together we talk about health and doctors' appointments. emoticon

Yes, you need some machines to sew. How come they all go down all at once!! That's the way it goes sometimes Maybe you should take the rest of the week off until they are fixed....wouldn't that be nice!

Have a good day, Joyce. Enjoy the visiting with son!

I hope you have a wonderful visit with your son. It is nice to have that time with your children.
Enjoy your last day of subbing for the week, Joann. Retirement can be hectic, I hear.

I am playing sewing machine mechanic this week. I will have to send (2) machines to the sewing machine hospital. I sent (2) last Friday. I hope I can get a loaner for one of the machines. It is impossible to sew without the needed equipment. We have been here before. We will survive!

Have a great day!

It's nice to have your grown children on a 1:1 basis You are right, it's so hectic when everyone is around, so to have a quieter time to chat is wonderful. I hope you have a great visit.

I'm subbing today, last time this week. I have plans for each day the rest of the week.

Have a good Tuesday!

Good for Mike very few people would look into it after the tech said it was trash it makes you wonder just how many things we trash that could be fixed. I'm glad you had a good weekend grandkids can be so much fun.

Our son has a ag show in DM so will be staying with us a few days it's nice to be able to visit when there are not so many people around Christmas is always such a mad house and never time to really visit so this time will be nice.

Make this a great day!

You had a win/win situation with that washer, Pam! You saved your washer and made money! YAY!!!! I'm glad Mike won the battle.

I'm subbing today and I hope you ladies have a great one!

It was a nice weekend. GS Will spent the night Friday night and left about 3:00 Saturday afternoon. He left most of his stuff here. He called me last night and said he will pick it up today. Grandpa was at the walk in clinic when he left. Grandpa was pretty grumpy so will spent a lot of time playing x-box in my sewing room. Will loves the quiet freedom of doing his thing in that room.
Mike feels better. He tore into our washer and fixed it. We had been told by a repair man that it was a "Throw away" because of the computer on it. He said it's like a T.V. When it goes bad, throw it away. We put it on the marketplace and there was a lot of interest in it. We did not sell it because our honesty won out. He called the tech line and spoke to several reps. He, finally spoke to one yesterday that pointed him in the right direction. The drain/lent catcher was plugged and would not allow the drainage to occur. The tray looked like a coin collection! We got more than $7.20 out of that tray. It held the lint in the tray and prevented the water to spin out. We hooked it up and gathered a load of towels. Guess what! It works! I am thrilled. We marked it sold and will sell the other one that we bought. It was not new and it wasn't the quality of the one that we repaired. Live and learn!

I hope you each have a great day!

The winter games sounds like fun I would probably have had to check out everything going on the crowds do not bother me around something like that if they get too much for us we leave it's not like I have to stay around and get something done.

We got everything we really needed shoveled out the rest can wait till something gets fixed then we'll finish it we need to get the bird feeders dug out and filled I'm sure the birds have missed the food.

Pam I hope Mike gets to feeling better it sure makes the winter long if you do not feel good most of the time.

Make this a good day!

I bet the winter games can be fun! Giant kites sounds fascinating. I bet it was cold, as well. I don't like crowds and traffic. I would have headed home too.
Did you get the shoveling done, Joyce? It wasn't too bad here. Our neighbor keeps our driveway cleared. He takes good care of us. We are blessed to have such a nice neighbor. He knows that Mike had cancer and his health is not good. BLESSED!

Mike went to a walk in clinic yesterday His sinus infection has returned. The coughing was constant. He got another antibiotic. He seems to feel better today. This is becoming an annual thing.
We skipped church because of the coughing. I will jump on my gazelle. I need to finish the tax deduction stuff. We are about ready to get that done. Chicken noodle soup is about ready. Mike needs that. I guess it will be a day of small chores and some relaxing.

Have a nice day!

Isn't that the way it goes, Joyce. Everything quits at the same time. I hope you get the part tomorrow and maybe son can help you out.

We went to the winter games at the lake yesterday, along with 40,000 others :). We just went to see the kites flying and boy were they big ones. It was pretty cool watching them; we didn't stay long and didn't do anything else. Too many people and too much traffic.

I hope you have a great day, friends.

Joann I am the same way I love Barns and Noble I do not shop the clothing stores in the mall much more for the grand kids than myself I tend to use more of the stores around there we usually go into Scheels the most I don't even go to Barns and Noble like I use to since I read off my tablet. I do like the way the mall has drawn in other stores around it to that area since that is where I do most of my shopping it is closer for me than University however there are still stores there I like and go to.

The snow has finally stopped here and it is time to dig out we got more than they thought we would and this is a really bad time the snow blower broke and the blade on the 4 wheeler is stuck everything went down at the last snow but the part for the snow blower will be here Monday and our son is coming tomorrow and knows more about the 4 wheeler and will hopefully fix it so in the mean time it is the good old fashion snow shovel oh well we do need the exercise and we do not need to really go anywhere.

Joann It's good to hear you are home safe and sound.

Have a great weekend and make this a great day!

Mike sure is on a lot of meds for his diabetes. Hopefully this new doctor will help him and it's great that he's helping himself with good diet. Diabetes is hard to deal with and then how it affects different parts of the body.

We did a little shopping at Jordan Creek, but I enjoyed one store; Barnes and Nobles. Otherwise I wasn't interested in all the shoe and clothing stores.I think they must have trouble keeping stores as well, there were empty stores. I like Valley West because it's smaller and I like JC Penney's. But those brick and mortar stores are struggling and it's because Amazon can offer free returns and convenience. What's it going to be like in 5 years.

We got home yesterday afternoon and had to dig out. Hubby got the pickup stuck in a snow behind the house; he was heading to the shop to get the tractor warmed up to blow snow. But the snow was so deep and he didn't get far. But everything is opened up and we glad to be home.

Have a good weekend, ladies.

It started snowing last night and is still snowing this morning I don't know how much we have but everything is covered it's really pretty while it is clean and undisturbed I'm sure that won't last long but I will enjoy it for now and that is easy for me to say I don't have to go out in it I'm sure those who have to go to work this morning have a different opinion.

Joann it's been awhile since I've been in Valley West mall that was always my favorite mall but now that Jordan Creek has opened they seem to have trouble getting and keeping stores which is sad. I hope you have a safe trip home when you decide to go the weekend is suppose to be good weather.

Pam I hope Mike does well with the new medication diabetics can be a difficult thing to manage.

Make this a great day!

Great job on the treadmill and walking! It is a challenge sometimes.
It has been snowing since about 5:00 yesterday. We may have 3-4 inches. Not bad at all. I can handle that. The temps are supposed to rise into the mid 30's to the low 49's so the snow won't last long.
Mr. Michael got a second opinion about his diabetes. He is getting his meds changed or adjusted. He currently takes 5 shots a day using 2 different insulin products. They are weening him off of on (2 shots) and replacing it with a pill. I think I will worry less. I think he gets too much insulin. His glucose drops to a dangerously low level. He has been blessed with waking up and taking care of it. I hope it works out for him.
Have a nice day and stay safe!

We are still in Polk City-I thought we were going home today but grandpa decided to stay until tomorrow. So we are going over to Jordan Creek Mall to get in our walking. We have to wait until some repairmen come, and then we have the day to do whatever.

Weekend shopping is no fun at all. I kick myself when I wait until Saturday to get groceries.

Have a good day, be safe in the fog.

Joann I think we already use the treadmill more than we did the elliptical I know I do Randy used the elliptical more than I did but said it hurt his back so stopped using it all in all I think it was a good switch.

I plan to run into DM and do some shopping it sounds like the best day to go in I hate going in on weekends it is a zoo in there.

Make this a great day!

It sounds like the next storm is just the other side of DM heading this way so I guess we will not be going anywhere for a few days those 40's sure sound good I'm not sure we are suppose to get them here but we can always hope.

There really is not much going on here I have been making a better effort to use the treadmill we sold the elliptical and bought a treadmill hoping we will use it more we never used it like we should have and we already use the treadmill more so maybe it was a good change.

Make this a great day!

Looks like itís freezing drizzle outside. Man, I can handle snow, but ice is not good. At home they are saying roads are 100% ice covered.

Addy and I made rhubarb jelly last night and she was excited that she has her own stash of it now. Then I made daughter a rhubarb dessert, so she was happy too.

Thatís too bad that your machines are down and you have work to do. I hope they are fixed soon!

Have a good day and be careful on the ice! It should warm up sometime today.

Have a great day!

We love soups and eat them quite often they are our go to thing on busy days nothing is better than putting everything in the crock pot and forget it till were ready to eat and this weather is perfect for them.

I'm sure you will find something interesting to fill your day while the kids are in school just think a whole day to your selves.

Joann I was afraid the weather had some more nasty stuff waiting for us it is winter in Iowa and we should expect it and I really don't mind it as long as we don't have to go out in it.

Make this a great day!

We got to Polk City late afternoon yesterday, so we made a lot of fun before bedtime. Today we can do whatever we want sine the kids are going to to daycare and school.
We are supposed to leave on Thursday, but with the weather who knows. Sounds like wind and snow, again. But the weatherman is hinting that the end of January and February could be warmer- wouldnít that be nice.

Soups are the best! Hubby likes just a couple kinds, but I like many. Itís usually chili and vegetable beef. Sometimes I make taco soup and thatís the extent of choices.

Daughter just got back from taking her hubby to the airport and says itís really cold out there. But itís going to get better tomorrow.
Stay warm!

Winter came to Iowa! It is to warm up a few degrees and have a wintery snow and rain mix for three days. Oh Happy Days!

Soup weather is here and I made a veggie beef soup and a large pot of chili. I will have to freeze it but that's okay.
Are you having a fun time in Polk City, Joann? I miss little grandkids. Enjoy every minute of it!

Have a safe and warm day!

The ancestry thing can be addictive you get in there and look up someone and all these green leafs pop up and before you know it the whole day is gone I'm going to have to really limit my time on there. You really learn a lot of things about your family.

It sounds like you both had a good weekend with family we didn't do anything we did watch the Cheifs game.

We really have nothing planned we have to stay close to home till the end of March we had really wanted to take a trip somewhere warm this winter but we will have to see what the rest of the year brings.

I haven't seen what the weather will be for this week and not sure I want to if it doesn't warm up.

Make this a great day!

That ancestry thing is interesting! My nephew is into that. I haven't done much with mine.
What a weekend you have had, Joann. That sounds like a fun time with family. Drive safely! Winter has hit with a vengeance! That trip to see your daughter will be fun!
We went to the Mexican restaurant for our anniversary Thursday. We stayed home and had leftovers from Thursday night on Friday. Saturday, I cooked the beef for veggie beef soup before we went to the "Sing for your Supper" event. It was fun but attendance was low because of the ice and cold. Sunday, we went to a nice restaurant with DS, his wife and youngest son. They treated so that was a pleasant surprise! Other than that, we did very little for the weekend. Addicted brother tried to call and I put my phone on silence. There is no other alternative!
Make this a happy day!

Sounds like a great day for you, Pam. Family is priority and arenít you glad your kids want you to come to their events.

Thatís interesting, Joyce, about your ancestry project. You are getting a lot out of that, I should have done more research when we got our results. What a fun way to spend these winter days.

We are in my hometown and spent the afternoon with my aunt and uncle. Watched the Chiefs play football. Tomorrow we head to Polk City to daughters.

Did you see the weather forecast for later in the week. Oh my, when is spring coming!

Have a good week!

It is still cold here but at least the snow and wind has stopped now we can start digging out the wind yesterday was worse than the snow.

Pam it is good to celebrate with family I'm not sure I would want to do 2 meals in one day but we do what we have to for family I hope you enjoyed your day.

Joann enjoy the children's museum they can be so much fun and the kids have so much fun.

My daughter got a subscription to ancestry.com for Christmas and has been looking into her heritage it is really interesting what she has found I have always wanted to do a heritage album so with this information and pictures I will get it done regardless it has been fun.

Make this a great day!

It is windy and cold! We are going to a Show Choir soup supper and fund raiser this evening. We are going to lunch with the kids after church. That's for our Anniversary. I would rather stay home but family is the priority. It will be nice. Those young people are so talented!
Stay safe! Keep warm! Enjoy the weekend!

We got everything in town done on Thrusday so we didn't have to go out today at all it stopped snowing and started misting which makes it worse now we have ice we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Joann it's good you don't have to worry about when you get home that way you don't have to worry about the roads.

Pam I'm glad the medicine is helping having sore feet can make for a really long day if you have to be on them all day.

Make this a great day!

It started snowing about 11:00 a.m. It is not bad. We may miss alot of it. I hope ch of you stay safe.
The prednisone is helping. I think the pain has lessened . When my ankle hurts, I go sit down in my office. I have that freedom as long as the girls have work to do. I have a very high tolerance for pain. I got used to it so it doesn't seem as painful. The doctor told me, "It hurts!" Okay! Anyway, I am trying to keep it as comfortable as possible.
We went to the Mexican restaurant for supper last night. They gave us a complimentary margarita. I have one about a half a dozen times a year. That's not too bad1
My sister came and spent the night. She left early to miss the bad riving conditions. We had a good time!
Stay safe and have a good day!

Itís snowing in Omaha-has been for quite a while. The littles are at day care, so Iím just waiting until hubby gets off the treadmill. Then itís my turn.

I hope you make your appointment today, Joyce. Be safe.

Has the medicine started helping yet, Pam. You may need to do a desk job until your feet feel better- but I know you and youíll be right there working as hard as usual.

We are planning to go to Polk City on Sunday and if itís not fit to travel, we donít have to. We planned to be gone until next Thursday so whatever happens, happens.

Congratulations Pam 50 years is a big milestone.

Randy has not started the radition yet we go today for a consulation to set it all up he can not start for 6 weeks from the surgery so we will know more after today.

Joann have a safe trip going down today you should be ok but coming back could be tricky.

Pam the tendonitis has to be painful especially when you still have to be on it all the time hopefully the medicine helps and they can get it healed.

Make this a great day!

Thanks, it's a worry to travel in the winter.

Aging just isn't fun!

I googled it. The information said that the aging tendons can get inflamed from old age. I think it will take time but it will be okay.

Travel safely!

emoticon Pam and Mike! 50 years is amazing, congratulations!

We are heading to Omaha this afternoon. I'm subbing until noon and then we will take off. The snow isn't to start until later tonight, so it should be ok to travel this afternoon. But yesterday afternoon the wind picked up and blew snow across the roads, so we'll see what this afternoon brings. It's -10 real temp and -23 feels like this morning and it's only going to get colder this weekend. Everyone be careful!!!!

As much as you are on your feet, that tendonitis must be terrible. Hopefully you are on the right track and can get those feel healed. You are on some strong medicine-wow! Did you get this from all the standing on your feet? I haven't heard of it before.

Have a warm day, friends! It's too cold to be out.
