Hi Ernie and Kitty ~

Are those your solar lights?  For outside?   Very pretty.   Jim took down the colorful lights we had around our rod iron patio fence.  I figured the neighbors may report us to the HOA, so down they came.

He did get in trouble yesterday as I took the girls (both daughters and granddaughters) to an upscale restaurant for Molly's 47th birthday brunch.  He took the wreath with the tartan bow off the front door.  Yikes!  Why?  I asked.   So, up it went to finish off the snow and winter.

We have maybe the 8-10 inches on the ground.  Has never melted.......I am even using pet friendly salt.  I think it has been too  cold to melt.  Tomorrow's forecast is in the 40's.  Can't wait.  May meet my dog friends and dogs out at a park.

Then, guess what?  Supposedly slammed with cold.....snow or ice beginning Wednesday thru Friday.

Yes, it will be very nice to go to Florida?  What?  The temperatures in Florida this week are barely above freezing.  Oh my.

Keep on keepin on as our friend would say.  The National Guard has left the Clinic so perhaps that is good news. COVID on the downward trend here in northeast Ohio.

Good morning Kitty and Susan.  5 here this morn, slightly warmer.  A little warmer in the day, I think.

I saw a stable on TV where veterans could ride reduced price or free but looks like disabled veterans

now that  see their website.  Very expensive otherwise.  I will have to wait until daughter and I get our

small horse farm going, years from now most likely. 

We have colored solar lights and strings also, dragonflies, humming birds, etc.  Have them around the

pool and at our pets graves.  I also have them at our families graves in PA.  The caretaker leaves them

there when he takes all the flowers and stuff.  I replace them once a year down there and bring the older

ones back here.  The strings have separate solar panels, with a 6 or 8 foot wire, I can put up in a tree or

up on the fence.

Susan, hope your vacation in Florida is good weather and hope all the oranges aren't dying, I eat them

just about every day.  We have a pizza eve today with one daughter and grands.  It's been a while because

she won't go out in the cold or snow to visit.  Tomorrow I'm traveling down south to the farm to help.  Thursday

and Friday might be ice storms. 

I had to glue in pieces of dry wall around the new GFCI outlet in the bathroom so the spackling will be today, soon

will look like it was always there.  I use something called patch & paint, very easy to use.  Mine is 10 years old and

almost gone so gotta pick up a new one today when I'm taking care of everyone's garbage. 

Hope you all have a great day, two days of good weather here.

Good morning Kitty.  Warm 23 here this morn.  We did have some snow melting off the bay window

roof.  Saw it dripping.  My dad had puzzles on his dining room table lots of times in the Winter.  We

had kids and everything so wasn't doing puzzles.  I seem to keep busy in retirement so far.

Headed down to the farm today.  Drove back on snow last time, looks like clear weather this time

just before the next ice and snow storm.  We're supposed to get 6 inches of snow from this one. 

We have to go get my brother some diesel and get a piece of radio equipment out of a shed before

the elements claim it, besides cleaning all the cat liter boxes and the garbage my brother has left behind. 

We had daughter and grands over for pizza last eve and one stayed so my wife has company while I'm

gone to the farm today.  She can't stand going to the farm house, she can smell the cat urine 100 feet

from the house, only about 3 feet for me.  My sense of smell not nearly what hers is.  House is very

dirty too.

So I never got to spackling around the outlet yesterday.  Glued in pieces of wall board and that's gotta be dry.

I got another little bucket of spackle and took car of everybody's garbage yesterday.  Also got my 4 prescriptions.

One of those is test strips so have only 3 meds.  Much less than I used to take.  None for diabetes, thank goodness.

Two of those I only take every other day.  I usually keep my glucose below 100 with diet and exercise.  I suppose

the day will come I won't be able to exercise so hard and will have to go back on diabetes meds.  It's many years

off right now I think.

Have a great day you all, quiet before the storm here.

Hi Miss Kitty,

A tiring day and to bed at 9:30 p.m.  Now, 12:30 p.m. and up, drinking a hot toddy and watching the snow.  I think they have made much ado about nothing...but we will see.  I just finished shoveling the patio ice and snow yesterday, the rains came and it was clear for the first time in weeks.  Now, Storm #2 and supposedly 8 inches of snow and ice today.  Everything has been called off ~ all schools and restaurants closing.  I even heard that the Turnpike will restrict the type of vehicles until it's over.  We will see.

I'm on my second knitting project ~ a hat again.  It's a super bulky wool and it knit up almost too fast.

Well, stay safe.  Tell Brian not to get carried away with snow shoveling....

Hi Ernie,

I can't tell what is on the table with your grands?  Looks like a very large cake..maybe?

The second storm of the century (lol) has arrived.  Just finished shoveling the ice and snow off the patio from the other storm and now we have another.  They've predicted much in two parts ~ we will see.  It looks like an inch or so at 1:02 a.m.

Enjoyed some time with my friend and her Golden this week at a pavilion in a nearby park.  We've been friends for probably nine years because I met her in the Pet Store.  I'll forward a picture of Kayla and Finn (now both ten years of age).  It was a balmy 41 degrees that day in Avon Lake.  

Plan to spend a quiet day inside.  Spicy chicken soup on the menu and some knitting...

Good morning Kitty and Susan.  34 here at 7:20 Thursday morning.  We're still getting rain.

Ice and snow haven't arrived yet.  Left the farm last eve about 5:30 PM trying to make sure

I headed east in front of the storm but roads still good here this morn.  Cleaned up the garbage,

Bagged some and burned other.  Cleaned all the kitty liter boxes.  Got diesel and filled his backhoe

for snow removal.  Cleared snow and ice away from his mailbox but more arriving next couple days

anyway.  Did some other stuff. 

Got home and our refrigerator control circuit board burning up.  I found a new one at Amazon after

2 hours of looking this morn.  Found many replacement types but wanted the exact one.  Can still smell

the burned circuits in here and all our refrigerated food is out on the deck under a tarp. 

I'm glad Finn is doing well at 10 years old and gets to enjoy time with the golden. 

Kitty, glad you're enjoying time with your daughter.  Will probably talk to my daughter this morning because

she has Amazon Prime and see if she can order my circuit board and get it quick and I can pay her if not an

inconvenience. 

Enjoy the day all.

Ernie

Always enjoy showing the bedspreads my mom made back around 1981.  She's gone in 87.
