Good morning....April 5 already.....it might get up to 60 today.....in Connecticut....very cloudy tho......have a wonderful smoke free day
Good morning to Ernie, Paul and Kitty ,
A beautiful morning here in Avon Lake. Signs of Spring everywhere and oh my, the grass is so green! I’m looking out our kitchen window into the front perennial flower bed. I need to bring out my knee pad and get to work on all of the leaves that have gathered over the winter. This is a “must do” because I do not trust the workers from lawn care to rake over everything (including the tender young shoots that are buried).
What is everyone’s Easter plans? We will go to Mass at a German Catholic Parish in the city. An old church that I am fond of for holidays. Then, the youngest daughter and family will go to a nearby restaurant for brunch.
Lovely this morning, 70 degrees but strong storms are predicted for later. Have a blessed day everyone. Susan
Congrats on a successful run. So happy that you are smoke free and able to participate in such events. Yes, I had a close friend who passed from lung cancer but her husband was a chain smoker, so possibly exposure.
It truly is such an insidious habit. I can’t believe that I was so stupid to smoke for all of those years. But, what is in the past must stay there and I am so grateful that I found the Forum and was able to quit.
Finn not up yet (9:32 a..m.). A walk for sure this morning.
Dear Miss Kitty,
Wonderful signs of Spring here…my treasured forget-me-nots have multiplied. I just love the blue flowers. Wish they lasted all summer long.
I must gather up the leaves and debris from winter soon. Rain coming.
What are your Easter plans?
I will send some of our warm temperature your way…supposed to get to 70 degrees today, but strong storms predicted.
We had a nice visit over to my friend’s home and we walked our Goldens. Kayla is going to be 12 and is slowing down ~ she will no longer jump up into my friend’s SUV, so we visit over at her house rather than going to a park. Such is life. They are content just to be together, as they previously would romp and play.
Enjoy the day. Hope you were able to walk the pups. Susan
Yes, if I had a time machine, I'd do lots of things differently. Assuming I had my current knowledge otherwise, I'd probably make the same bad choices,
I'll go to my sister's probably Saturday morning. I'll go to a Good Friday service at the church my grandparents went to. 157 years old. Probably won't go Easter, unless one of my nieces wants to go.
Good evening, everyone,
Good morning all. In the 40s last two mornings, nice to not have my hands so cold, even with heated gloves.
54 this morn but dropping temps throughout the day. We have 3 nights in a row back in the 20s but at least
above our threshold so we will be out for a walk mornings. The dogs still rush out into a lane of traffic if there's
an animal alive or dead. Kayla and Finn are getting older, it's a pain but something we have to live with if we want
the love. Wife says my solar lights look like a runway up in our dog cemetery. Miss them all so much.
I see my wife's flowers coming up. Don't know what they are but they will be pretty. Then we have all the pool
flowers coming up soon. Only a little over a month and it will be pool opening time. Muck nicer to open than to
We're having the family Easter ham dinner here, same as every year. Will love having our family together. Daughter's
haven't taken over hosting the dinner yet. We still haven't put up Easter decorations yet but some Spring stuff and
St. Patricks is down.
You probably remember we lost our flower girl last year, I think from smoking lung cancer. Isn't talked about much
because 4 of my wife's brothers still smoke even with weak lungs and vascular problems. I came very close to dying
with my Aortic aneurysm 9 years after I stopped smoking, probably caused by plaque on artery walls, the vascular
surgeon said. The surgeon said plaque never goes away. One of wife's brothers has had surgery's on the arteries
that go down legs just below the Aorta. Wife changed over to vape but hasn't been able to let that go yet. She did
step own to a 3 of nicotine from 6. It's strange having your flower girl gone.
Was 67 here this afternoon, we had house windows open again. 2nd time. I've been putting plastic bags over our
car mirrors and windshield covers on with straps out to the edge of the mirrors. Trying to stop the Robins from
pooping on our mirrors and down the sides of the cars. Hasn't solved it but reduced it a great deal. Had the same
thing last year, think it's for a couple months of Spring.
I'm still trouble shooting the control problems in the ham transceiver, will get it some time. Keeping track of brother
in hospital. I will probably have to go back down Saturday to take care of his cats if he's still in then. Has infections
in one leg that are improving with antibiotics and has a blood clot in the other leg they're trying to cure with blood
thinners. Leg with infections is starting to look better, he says.
Have a great day all.
Wishing all of my dear friends, a blessed Easter. Love, Susan
Enjoy the Good Friday services and time spent with your family. One of the girls and her family are traveling to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I believe they eventually plan to visit all of the Baseball stadiums. We will enjoy Easter with my youngest and her family.
Finn may get a few left overs from our visit to the restaurant.
Seeing your comment on your solar lights and pathway back to your loved animals made me smile! Finn will probably get a few leftovers from our visit into the city on Sunday. I have cooked and made holiday meals for a lifetime and now, I am happy to either allow one of the girls to take over or to dine at a restaurant!
I did manager to put a few hours in outside, scooping up the leaves and winter debris and cutting back some of the perennials. May I say “ouch” because that is how my left knee has felt since going up and down for two hours. I love the putzing….and planting…..and seeing God’s beauty in our flowers.
Happy Easter to you and your family.
