Wishing for Spring...

 I am trying to stay awake today but I am thinking that is a lost cause. I don't think that it is the weather, but in part it isn't helping by being chilly and dark gray over cast. 
 I took this photo two years ago at the apartment building where I lived. I took it the same day that I returned from a visit to Florida. This is early March. I just couldn't believe it. Usually it is late May before we get blossoms and blooms. 
 We already have trees trying to bud out. I really do believe in climate change and global warming. Our planet is trying to swing early warm temps tricking our trees and plants into thinking that it is spring. Oh well. It is what it is..

 I have been trying to unpack a box a day. I am not doing that today tho. I am just way to tired. That is what happens when I over do it and then the next day I am just drained. So being lazy today is a gift to myself. I am alone today. I have one day a week where I don't have to do anything so I usually take Thursdays off. It works out for me. I can just do what ever I want without having to listen to the boys blare the surround sound, play their video games or guitar. I can enjoy the quiet on Thursdays. It is so nice not to have all that noise. I usually don't mind it but sometimes I really get tired of hearing it. 

 I went to check and see if the boys put the trash bins out to the curb and see if they garbage ran and more especially to make sure the boys didn't forget.
 They put out both bins so I brought them in. They always put out the blue recycle bin and it runs every other week so I drug that one in too. They ran last week so they forget. It is okay tho. As long as they remember to get the trash out I am happy ha.

 When I looked out this morning there was a package. I was thinking who sent me a package and then remembered it was my friend Patsy. She sent me 3 pairs of micro flannel jammies. They are awesome. I am wearing one pair now. 
 I knew she had gotten them. They have a 99 cent everything store where she lives. (I really miss that store.) and she got her some and some for me. She also put in a 64 bit scan disc card for my new tablet. She had an extra and she gave it to me. 
 Thank You Patsy. I love these jammies and very happy with the card!

 Is it ever too late to send out thank you notes? I use to be so on top of that. I was raised to send out thank you notes and raised my children to do the same but in recent years I have gotten away from that I am ashamed to say. 
 I enjoy sending them out but since I never get to the store anymore I forget to pick them up when I am going.
 I recently got Amazon Prime so I can now order what ever I need and I am very happy that I am thinking of things to get such as cards and stationary. And I do know that a late thank you is always better than no thank you at all... So expect some form of thank you from me!!!

 My list is growing large for household items I need to pick up at the store. We are getting out of everything.
 Laundry soap, dishwasher tabs, paper products etc. And I have a few wants on the list as well. I want to find a small mirror with a stand. I want a small one but all I have found is a large one. I am sure that I will find it.
 The main thing that I am looking for is a clock radio with a timer. I love listening to music as I sleep and would like for it to turn off after about an hour after I am asleep. I found a nice one online from Walmart. It's less than $30.00 and free shipping so I plan to buy that for myself. 
 It is super nice. It also has 10 settings of what they call sleep therapy. It plays a babbling brook, the sounds of the ocean, a thunderstorm, wind chimes, etc... I had one on my phone but it runs my battery down really fast and didn't have a timer. 
 So I know I will really enjoy the radio.

 My son Nathan has Celiac disease. He really hurts all over when he eats Gluten so we are buying Gluten free food and last night he bought his food for the next couple of weeks. I found a great website that offers Gluten free recipes. 
 When people look at him they think that he was or is a major drug user because his teeth are all rotting. He is not a drug user and it bothers him that people think that about him but this disease has really ruined his smile.
 His dentist wants to pull them all and put in implants. He is trying to find insurance to help him get that done. I have looked at several and even called the dentist office to see what kind of plans that they can offer him. 
 How incredibly high! The cheapest I have found so far is $500.00 deductible and $265.00 per tooth. And so far that is the cheapest. Poor kid has to do something. He is only 27 years old.

 Ok so this is it for me today. I think that I am going to catch up on a couple of tv shows and close my eyes for a while. Y'all take care and have a great day... BB

It Is All About.....POGO

It is getting close to Valentines Day and I am in a loving mood. I love all pets and some I love just a tiny bit more because they have captured my heart. 
 I miss my Cisco so much but I know that he is happy that I have Pogo to love... even if it is long distance.

 So I have been a tad busy the last couple of days. I wanted to post last night but after dinner I suddenly got lazy. I turned on my little tablet and searched for a show called Americas Worst Cooks. 
 I didn't find it but I did find the clips and I watched it and laughed my butt off. Then I discovered the Budweiser Clydesdale commercials from years ago and after that I watched the new ads coming out for the Super Bowl and after that I watched Dateline and started falling asleep. So that is why I didn't post last night like I normally do.

 I have a program on my computer called Fotofunia. You can get it on Google play store. You might can find it at your own play store I don't know but it is worth a shot at seeing if you can.
 I love this little program. I have made a lot of pages with it and some pages I have gone in and played with a photo and then turned it into a scrap page. 

 Tonight I decided to do that before I posted and as I was playing around I found a few effects and category's that I had not tried out and Mr. Pogo won in the photos I chose to play with. 

I love this one. It is going to be really cold where he lives and he loves looking out the screen door waiting for Joe to get home. With the weather the door will be shut so he and his mama can stay warm so I put him in the windows so he can see out.... Isn't he handsome?

And if you notice he is guarding the Chocolate candy store... Thank you Pogo, there are a lot of chocoholic's out there... haha... I am one of them!

My boy and his Mama.....

I tried to upload one of the photo's I made but for some reason it keeps saying upload failed... Well it was my favorite and a special one for Miss Edna. I will have to think of some other way to get it to her if I can't figure it out here...

Well I found some information on it and it said that my computer doesn't support the file format. 
 So I will work on it a bit more. I don't want to say what it is because I might can go in and resize it and the format and be able to post it later.

 Yesterday was such a gorgeous day. It was 71 degrees, plenty of sunshine and I was out side just doing nothing, It felt good to sit in the sun and meditate. That didn't last. The temps started dropping and a heavy wind came in. It was 29 degrees last night. It wouldn't have been so bad but the wind is what made it miserable.
 It is funny, I am an Air Sign and it is my element, but I do not care for wind. I do prefer wind to fire tho so I will take it lol.

 I made up for my laziness today tho. I disinfected the bathroom, washed the bath rugs, changed the bedding on my bed and washed my blankets. Cleaned the kitchen and cooked dinner. I also swept the house but tomorrow I need to mop it.
 It is getting cold.
 I am worried for a lot of people right now. They said that the Antarctic is warmer than the U.S. right now and especially next week. Several States like North Dakota and Nebraska 8 states total will shut their mail down. Their trucks can't run. The fuel is freezing up. Some planes can't take off either. They are spraying with the de icing liquid but that is freezing too. 

 I worry about the animals that are out in the cold that have no shelter and the homeless people that can't get to a shelter. I pray that they will find shelter to get thru this.
 Many animal shelters are taking in as many as they can and churches and schools are opening up to anyone that needs them, so I really hope that people take advantage of shelter during this hard time.

 I really have to crack down tomorrow and do some reading and study for the course I am taking. Mostly it is just reading but I haven't been doing what I need to do so I have to get with it.

 I will close for now. I am getting tired and it is morning already so I need to go to bed. Have a wonderful Tuesday and until next time.... BB

Cold Wet And Damp

A page that I colored over the weekend....


 This is a page that I colored over the weekend. I made a copy of this one and have it along with a few more that I have done from my adult coloring book that Miss Edna sent me for my birthday a couple of years ago. 
 Daughter Karyn loved it so I made copies of some of the pages and gave to her. Coloring relaxes her as well it seems.

 It is cold here for us.. Not for those of you in really cold cold cold weather, but for us it is chilly as we are used to winters a little more warmer. And it is supposed to get cooler the weather said. But our high today is supposed to be up in the 50's and then drop close to freezing by Tuesday. 
 I cannot and will not complain about the rain (at least too much) because this summer we will all be begging for rain. I have learned not to complain and just take it day by day. It would do no good to complain about something I can't change!

 I am sorry to have been away. We had a crazy few weeks. We had a death in our family and it was very hard. She had been on hospice since right after our Thanksgiving. The last few days she was just made comfortable and she slept a lot. 

 I was down for about 4 or 5 days with a stomach virus. I thought that it might have been something that I had eaten because I am the only one that has gotten it so far. Everyone else has had runny noses and coughs and sneezing. 
 I seen on my Facebook page where someone posted that worked in the health field said to take a cotton swab and put a little antibiotic ointment on the tip of the cotton swab and to rub it inside your nose because most virus's, colds and flu are air born and mainly we breathe it in so I did that as soo as I heard Jonathan sneezing.
 I have been spraying my can of Lysol disinfection spray too. 
 Matthew was very sick a couple of weeks ago. He ran a very high fever, body aches and I just know that he had a case of the flu. I had my flu shot and I was lucky I didn't catch it in spite of being in close contact with him. On the other hand I got the crud and had exposed him about 5 days before he came down sick. 
 Nathan became really sick. He came home from work on a Monday night running fever and cold and aches and pains. Mainly the fever and a bad head-ache. Thankfully he was off work the next two days and although he wasn't well he wasn't contagious any longer so his boss let him come back to work.
 By Saturday Jonathan was sick. A few days later I was just really tired but I did see Matthew during that time. Only for a little while as he came thru town. That night I came down with it. It was no fun at all. So I think that I gave it to Matthew when I seen him. He wanted me to see his truck and I went on a small run with him so I was in his truck and not surprised when he called me sick. 
 I was afraid that it would run thru the house again, but knock on wood it hasn't other than a few sniffles here and there.

 My doctor gave me some masks and gloves for when I go out to wear and I have them in my purse. My sister said the other day when she called me and I had the stomach virus she said "You all are the sickest bunch I have ever met. I don't know what is wrong with you all." It really hurt me but I cannot help that my immune system is compromised and I think that my kids have low immune systems as well. We all take vitamins and drink plenty of orange juice and wash our hands frequently. They all have had their flu shots so.... well anyway there you have it.

 Day before yesterday a friend of mine told me I had a package coming in the mail. It was a late Christmas gift. Yesterday Fed-Ex knocked on the door and handed me my package. Matthew grabbed it out of my hand picking on me... "I am opening it" he said holding it above his head laughing. I was laughing at him too saying "Uh Uh that is mine!"
 He cut the tape off of it and handed it to me... WOW was I surprised!

A tablet with an detachable keyboard.... I love it...

I really love it. It is just perfect for me to take to Florida. My computer is really so heavy and I will only be able to carry one carry on with me on the plane. Granted it is just a tablet but it will do everything that I want it to do so I am pleased. 
 I downloaded NBC last night so I can watch Dateline but I might have to uninstall it because for some reason it is not accepting our cable provider. I tried to download it to my computer too and same problem. We have AT&T U-Verse so we shouldn't be having this problem. I will have Jonathan look at it later on today and if he can't fix the problem I am going to have him call the company and see what the problem is.
 We get NBC on the big t.v. so we should be able to download the app. I want to try and download a few programs so I can watch them in Florida. I already have a couple of movies so I can watch on the plane and if go on a trip I can watch a movie while we are driving. Knowing me I will fall asleep on the drive lol.
 Last year I was watching a movie on the plane and we landed with about 15 minutes left for the end of the movie. Once landed I thought that I would stay on the plane and let everyone else get off and I could see the last of the movie but NO... The movie shut off. So I was hoping to catch the ending on the way home but my plane going home did not have the DVD player/Tablet and I couldn't remember the name of the movie so I think that the tablet will be great to have on my trip. 

 We have had to have a few things fixed around here. Our heat went out one day. It was cold too. I was lucky that my Land Lady was across the street doing some things with her handyman and he came over and worked on it and on Nathan's ceiling fan. It was coming loose from the ceiling. 
 The handyman said she was going to have to call in a Heat and Air guy and he came straight over and had it fixed really fast. He had the heat going before the handyman was finished with the ceiling fan lol.
 Now I am just waiting on another part to my dishwasher. It should be here this week. It should give me no problems after that gets put on. I really like this dishwasher. It is so roomy and I can take out the top rack and add big pots and tall tea pitchers and vases and things of that nature to clean easier than by hand washing them. 
 Now I noticed that my venti hood light and fan has stopped working. I will have Nathan take a look at it before he heads off to work.

 Well I guess that this is about all for me this morning. Have a wonderful and day and until next time, please take care... BB

Hello Thursday!

This is from Bing.... I found it and just loved it so it is not mine. It is from the internet.....


 I just love bears. My mama did too so I guess it is one of our connections. She and my sister Susie use to cuddle up in bed when we were kids and she would tell Susie's favorite story when she was little... The Three Bears and Goldilocks. I wish that I could show her this photo. She would love it... 

 So I have been meaning to blog and have just been busy. Last week I helped my land lady clean the apartments across the street from me. It wasn't much but I did help load some garbage bags of junk and trash. 
 She had most of it done before I helped out.
 I also worked in my yard, the back yard. We had lots of leaves left so I managed to get another large out door bag filled. The raking and the sweeping left me sore but the exercise was good for me and wouldn't you know it... It is raining again. It has rained all week and Old Man Winter is knocking on our door this week. Back into the 20 and 30's starting Friday. I can deal with the cold but the wind is what I really don't like. 30 to 50 mph wind gusts but by Tuesday they should die down.

 Still we have rain tomorrow so that means that I cannot put out the bags of leaves again tomorrow. The 6th day that the compost truck picks up lawn and garden refuse. I am assuming that we will have a dry summer so I better not complain much about the rain. I just hope that it doesn't flood this spring.

 My son Matthew is home. He is sick. Very sick. He has been running 103 fever off and on for several days. He has slept a lot too. He and I laid down around 2 today and took a nap. He is still sleeping and it is almost 11:00 pm. I know that sleep helps to heal. 
 I am using Lysol to disinfect and hope that we don't get sick. Since we have already had all this crud I really hope that Jonathan, Karyn, Nathan and I don't catch it again.
 But family is family. We can't kick him out in the cold! I am sure that he is going to wake up and be up all night. I hope that he will be able to sleep a few more hours tho. I think his fever has broken and I say that because he has been sweating a lot. 

 Not much news going on around here other than keeping an eye on the weather. Tomorrow is Jonathan's late night. I was just talking to him about dinner tomorrow night. 
 I am making pork chops and mashed potatoes and gravy. I haven't made pork chops in ages.  We love pork chops. I got a great deal on them at the market too.

 I have been having a blast with my little granddaughter Celeste. She has learned how to call me so we can video chat. She is such a mess!
 She has an awesome sitter and her mama tonight called me and was singing her sitters praises. I am SO Happy that she has someone who is so awesome caring for her.
 Not only does Courtney come home and Celeste has had her bath dinner and in her pj's, her sitter has helped her with laundry, cooked dinner, cleaned and Courtney said tonight, that she is not paying her for all she is doing and the sitter told her... We have agreed on the pay so what I do is what I want to do for you. 
 Her sitter, (sorry I don't know her name) takes Celeste to her house, on errands, and does things with her. I told Courtney it is so good for Celeste and the sitter is an older woman. 55 years young and use to teach school so she is working on teaching her how to write and spell her name and prepping her for kindergarten and since she comes to Courtney's house she doesn't have to drag her out and into the cold every day. 
 I told Courtney that this woman dropped from heaven for her. Courtney is friends with her daughter so she has known her for several years and Celeste loves her. So that is awesome and she said that Celeste's attitude has completely changed. She was crying and having problems at her sitters house.
 I remember that she and I were talking and I told Courtney that this was not normal for her. Something was going on with her sitter. She has been in day care since she was 6 weeks old and never acted out and now she was and it was every day that something just wasn't right. 
 Celeste is now a very happy little girl and that is how she's always been and I am really glad that this woman is with my little girl.

 A lot of my time is spent also studying in my course. I am working with Crystals. Right now I am learning all types of crystals and their history. I have a test coming up on Monday so I really have to study a couple extra hours over the rest of the week and weekend. I am enjoying it so far. I never thought that I would be studying again lol... and I am also working in my Dream book that Miss Edna gave me. So I seem to have a bit on my plate right now.

 It is getting late so I am going to bed. I hope that everyone has a great day and I will be back soon.... BB

You Have To Be KIDDING!

Hello and Good Morning,
 I had a restless night last night. I tossed and turned for a long time and finally I just got up. I needed to visit the bathroom anyway and I had opened the door and Jonathan and I ran into each other. 
 The hallway was a bit dark. I had my lamp in my room on so it wasn't a lot of light. I don't know who was more startled. He gasped and stepped back and I did the same. Fight or Flight. Well he went back to bed and I was like I think that I am up now. So I flipped on the coffee pot. 

 While waiting for my coffee I was thinking that I would get a really good start on working in the yard today. I made my coffee and walked outside. I sat down in my chair and sighed. It was going to be a beautiful day. 
 Then my moment ended as rain drops started falling.

 YOU Gotta Be Kidding Me! 

 I looked at the weather last night before going to bed. No rain in sight for the rest of the week! 
 I am going to have to seriously yell at The Weather Channel and my local News Weather man/girl and ask them what the heck is going on?

 Well I guess since it is wet I will scrap those plans for today. But that is okay. It is Monday and I have my household cleaning list that I need to take care of.
 I have a pretty neat system. I clean one room a day. Monday's are the bathroom, sweeping and a light mopping. 

 I am going to work on my altar cloths today. I am not going to decorate them but I do need to wash them and cleanse them. They are baby blankets of my grandchildren in California. 
 The image at top is one that I borrowed from the internet. I think that is so pretty and I love fabrics.
 I have my tarot cards wrapped in a silk scarf and in a special box that I keep on my dresser. It keeps people from picking them up and touching them. I really don't like people to touch my things that are personal to me. The only time would be for a reading. 

 I am making some Potato soup for dinner tonight. And a pan of cornbread.  I have been wanting some for a while now. I would make chicken and dumplings but I don't have any chicken. We like potato soup on days like this. I don't mind the rain. I really don't but I am just a bit annoyed with it as I am itching to play in the dirt lol.

 I was reading an interesting article several months ago and I saved the pictures of a historical flood back in I believe 1935. I think that the one of the photos actually has the date on it so I might be wrong thinking that it was 1935.

 We have had 3 floods in 5 years. One was Halloween 2013. Then we had another that was actually over a period of several weeks. That was in October 2016 and then this last one was October 2018.
 All three floods were in October. 

 The one that was in the 30's happened in May. I have photos to share with you.

It was really bad... and very sad....

So our floods have been as bad as this one in 1935. But... the one in 2016 was heartbreaking. Not far from us is a small town. It had cabins that you could rent and this flood struck fast and during the night. I forget how many people died, but the rescuers never found the bodies of 2 small children. They still search from what I have heard. 

 Last week we had a man whose car was swept away. He was able to call for help from climbing a tree, and was rescued by a boat. With all of the hills here you can't see the water or where it is. Ok well enough of that so I will move on. I just wanted to share a bit of history. And it was in 1935. I checked.

 We need a sofa. Karyn was going to give us hers but I think that she is going to find a little studio for herself. She was thinking about room mating with a friend of hers, but she hasn't really committed to that as of yet. The reason is the woman just had a baby about 3 months ago and Karyn is not Maternal at all...She did put in her 60 day notice tho. 

 There is a really nice apartment building being built and should be ready the end of next month. She was able to see one of the models that was ready. She said she fell in love with it. But I don't know what she will decide but we are kind of waiting to see what she is going to do because we don't want to buy something if she is going to give us hers and I would hate to see her sell it or give it away to someone else because it is really a gorgeous sofa and very comfortable.  But we don't have room for 2 sofas and a love seat. 

 I just had breakfast, took my insulin and medication. I have one medication that I only take once a week, sometimes twice a week if I feel like I need it. It is a B complex vitamin and I feel like it is stuck in my throat. I know it isn't but it feels like it. I really dislike it when that happens... 
 Anyway I am getting sleepy so I think that I will lay down for a little while. Take care and have an awesome day.... BB

Isn't this pretty?

 It was a gorgeous day. Our high for today was 73 degrees. Tonight will get chilly, down to 46 but I can deal with that!
 And tomorrow is supposed to be just as pretty as today. I have my plans already made. Raking the back yard. Every Thursday since we have been here it has rained so I have a lot of bags just waiting to go to the curb so they can pick them up. 
 Anyway I want to clean up my back yard. The rain has turned the soil onto the patio into sludgy dirt. I am not sure that I can explain it any more than that lol.

Karyn and Foxy are supposed to be coming and spending a couple of hours with us. We will see. She usually just pops in for about a hour and pops right back out lol. But I will have the Fox and ohhh her Lovey.
 Miss Edna sent her a Racoon that is just too adorable for Christmas. Karyn said once they got home, she guarded Lovey. I wish I had taken pictures. Or a short video. I never think of things until a bit later on. I hope I can get some pics when they are over tomorrow. I am anxious to see if they bring Lovey with them. 

 I have narrowed down my comforter. This one is in first place at the moment. It is purple. My walls are a very pretty medium gray for the accent wall and a soft vanilla cream for the rest of the walls. The molding is thick and painted a bright white. I have never had a purple comforter before. This is actually called Fawn. 
 Over at Macey's I believe it was, it was in browns. I didn't have a color option when I was searching. I found this one over at Walmart. It might lose it's status. Nothing is set in stone until I actually go shopping for it and I am thinking that I will wait until I get back from Florida. Who knows, I might find something I like there and mail it home. We will see. I love dreaming of things that make a house a home. But sometimes the Choices are hard to make. 
 Usually I just know what fits me and what I am searching for when I actually see it. If it speaks to me then I know it is the right choice. Intuition is such a good thing to have when it comes to things of this nature. Sometimes it isn't such a good thing, but I really think that this is the one or close to it. 

 The part to my dishwasher had to be ordered from Tempe Arizona. It came in Friday and the store owner called today to tell me that they will be here on Monday to put the part on. It is really simple. I could do it myself if I had a pair of channel locks but our land lady has already taken care of the part and the service call and he has the right tools. I would prefer them to do it in case something doesn't work right. But he showed me how to take it off and clean it for future reference. 

 Our neighbors across the street have moved out. (In the middle of the night)… It was a family of 4 in one apartment and the mother in the adjoining apartment. 
 I called my land lady to ask about the part to the dishwasher and told her that I hated that our neighbors moved and she said "Whatttt"?  For me it was an awkward moment. I thought that she knew.
 I wouldn't have known except I seen the electric company out front trying to get into the back gate. He told me he needed to get into the back to disconnect the electricity to both apartments. 
 I knew that they had a lot of company lately which was unusual so now I know why and I also seen a truck and her van there late last night. Oh well. But it is a pity that they seemed to have snuck out. 

 I was unpacking a box right after we moved in. I am going slowly. I want to make sure everything has a home before dragging it all out. Anyway I found my map colors, markers and pens. I was really excited. And I found a coloring book but not what I was hoping would be in the box. Since it was close to Christmas at the time I wanted my cards so I could send them out. I have already colored some. I am having a tad of a problem figuring out the envelopes but I will.
 I still have not found my Christmas Cards. I am sure I will find them in a box in July haha... 

 So I haven't told anyone about my latest project because I have just forgot to mention it but I enrolled in an online course. It isn't a college course or anything like that but it is an actual course for my own personal growth. 
 I am interested in herbs, crystals, and learning how to incorporate things into my life. I am especially interested in the moon and phases as well as coordinating with colors and days of the week and so forth. I chose to start at the very beginning. 
 I am very impressed with the materials. I really do need a printer because I would like to print these courses out. In the mean time I am saving to a USB drive. 
 Tomorrow Jonathan and I are going food shopping at Walmart so I will have the first lesson printed off. And the test. 
 If anyone is interested I will be glad to share the information and it is very reasonable. Just $6.00 dollars a month. I can work at my own pace. So I am glad of that.
 Now for something else. The woman doing this is awesome. She has helped me a lot with just regular chit chat. And she lives here in Austin. She sent me a couple of links to some groups for me to check out since I was telling her it is hard meeting like minded people. So I will do that as well. Right now I am saving for Florida so I have several things on hold at the moment. I can wait on some things because I don't want to rush things. 
 But after Florida I plan to get serious with my house and garden. And Dammit I want my dog!

 Speaking of which I am going to try and work a deal with my land lady and all she can say is no... so I am going to work extremely hard to quit smoking and cut out a lot of my little things like eating out and just keep saving as much as I can. But I think that she will go for the deal that I am going to propose to her. I will let you know....

 Alrighty  am getting sleepy. It is almost 1:00 in the morning, so I will close for now. I do have a couple of cute things I have gotten off the internet, mostly Facebook. 
 I wish you all a wonderful Sunday....

Don't you just LOVE those 5 seconds? Today I did my laundry and walked into my room and found my fuzzy robe that couldn't be washed with my clothes. I usually wash it with my sheets and towels. I didn't even get the 5 seconds before it hit my laundry basket lol....

I really love this one.... This happened to me last weekend... Jonathan snuck in and got the last mug or cup which ever you call it.... I am glad to have a coffee partner.... :)

I just love this.... Remember the commercial? Wow it brings back memories... She's a beauty!

Now this is just too adorable.... Ok so this is it for me tonight.... Take care! Please forgive any errors. It is late and my eyes are seeing double. I don't know what happened to my plans to have an early night haha....  BB

Cold, Wet And Buds?

Buds? Maybe

 It has been raining for days here. We are being flooded all over again. The week prior to that was warm and balmy and so a couple of trees out in the back are beginning to have tiny shoots on them. I took several photos but this is actually the best of them. It was cold and windy so I did the best that I could fighting the wind and shaky hands. 
 It is really amazing. I suppose it is how our climate is changing. We are getting warmer and warmer it seems. Then wham out of no where winter arrives and messes with our trees and flowers. 
 It is way to early for flowers to be blooming... (Yes I have white and red roses in full bloom) and tender shoots on trees trying to bud. If this freeze doesn't kill my flowers I will take photos the next warm dry day. My back yard is flooded. No surprise there. The rain has just come down so hard for so long that they had to open one of the dams and more flood gates. 

 I am walking around in a Zombie like state. I just can't seem to rest. I do sleep but it is not the restful kind of sleep. It is a toss and turn sleep with the cover thrown all over the bed or floor. 
 I have been having night sweats too. Sometimes I have to get up and change into dry clothing and that is miserable. I get chilled and then I get warm then have the night sweats again. 

I think that this sums it up! LOL.

 I need to work on taking the tree down today. I was going to do that yesterday but I had zero energy. Plus Nathan was home and was being a brat so I just stayed away from him.
 Then the same with Jonathan when he came home from work. I was like sheesh what is wrong with the two of you today? So I just watched a movie and let them be. Sometimes that is the best way to go.

 Anyway, this is about all of the news I have for today so I am going to start taking down the tree before I get the I don't want to's… You have an awesome day... BB

    Forgiving ourselves is one of the hardest things that we can do to try and move forward. It is not easy, but it is very rewarding.   Hel...
