A quick fly by to say :hello: I'm off to Briarcliff in a tad, then to my daughter's house to meet Evan at the bus, then to bowling. Another back to back events day. The sun is shining and it will warm up to about 60 then freeze tonight. Rain, etc due in on Thursday. I hope that people won't get complacent about warnings in the future. They had hyped last Friday up for so long and it was terrible storms, but just not in my immediate area. Most of the ones in Alabama were in low population areas, so not as much damage as it could have been. People are saying things about the weathermen getting everyone excited for nothing and the schools all closed between noon and 1:00 as a precaution. These were all things that needed doing, but turned out to have been overkill. Might not be so lucky the next time.

Bev, I hope your weather improves. Spring is just around the corner. Congratulations on the fledge. Arya should be close behind. Didn't they hatch just a day apart?

Jean, glad you have finally cleared up in time for the next round to come in. What do you have exciting going on today?

Carolyn, I love you lamb story. Such wonderful memories.

Diane, hope you get some good news and relief at the doctor today. Please keep us informed.

Barbara, how is the next concert coming along?

Donna, maybe your wind will subside today. Then maybe ours will before it starts again.

Gotta git. Hope everyone mentioned or not has a wonderful day and week.

Go and See and I will bring it back to Thee

Good Morning

So happy about the newest hummies fledging.

Diane take care and I am praying that all goes well. Not fun to have that kind of pain.

Jean it won't be long and you will be celebrating hatchings at L of O. I think eggs will begin to be laid in BC about now.

The crows here were super noisy this morning. They have a nest in a pine tree in the yard behind us and they have just about chased all the other birds away.

We are going to be having temps in the upper 60's today. I will get the children outside for sure. The dogs too.

I have much to do so I am off.

Sorry not to mention everyone, but all are thought about.

Good afternoon...
Enjoying all the stuffed animals. They are so cute.

Great news for Phoebe... More eaglets will be around to watch soon.

I sure am glad that little #3 eaglet at Sutton is getting bigger! I was worried.Phew

Hope we have some baby owletes too!

Doc said I didn't tear anything... thank goodness. I just badly bruised the tissue, muscles, tendons and such. Gave me some stretches to do and some anti imflamatory meds. Thank you for all the concern... I will be fine. I just hope I can start to sleep again. So many sleepless nights like when my hip was a problem.

They named Jewel's cubs... They want to keep the names after food in the forest that the bears eat.. Jewelweed. The male they named Herb. Female is..... Fern. They said the 'screamer' is the female!Oh the shame

Have a good day everyone............

Hi Diane! Thanks for stopping in and letting us know how the doctor's visit went!Phew Sure glad you didn't tear anything or break anything~! I was worried that you might have torn your rotator cuff! Take it easy, rest, exercise, and take your meds! Hopefully you will be feeling better soon! Exercising is the most important thing. With all the breaks and teares I've had I know that's what helps mending the most!

Love the pictures of the Muskegon River. You sure bring back lots of memories with the Mi pictures you post. Don and I traveled all over Mi for our vacations as we didn't have much money to travel far.

wave Hi, friends!

Missed y'all yesterday! After church and lunch, I went shopping for a gift then headed downtown to my friends' house (the ones from Portugal) to celebrate their 1st anniversary. The party lasted until nearly 11:00 last night, so it was close to midnight when I got home. We had a great time, visiting, watching video from their wedding in Portugal, singing, etc. A couple of us stayed to help clean up, so that's why I was so late getting home.

I thought it would never stop raining here Saturday!!!Oh My I was up until nearly 3:00 AM and it was still raining cats and dogs! By 9:00 Sunday morning, it was sunny and very breezy. It was a lovely day! Today is more of the same and very, VERY breezy!Titter It got cold last night and is a little cool today, but very nice in the sun. I think we probably have more storms coming later in the week though.

Diane, so good to hear from you that you didn't break or tear anything! Hopefully the meds will help the immediate pain and the exercises will help the soreness go away. Beautiful pictures of Michigan's Muskegon River area.

Jean, love the gorilla! He's so cute! I like the Serta Sleeper sheep too - I almost got one once, but we ended up buying a different kind of mattress set.Grin

Bev, your monkey is so cute! I know you enjoy it so much because the boys gave it to you!Wub Glad you had a nice family dinner yesterday. We always do that when we go to visit family. I'm glad I have my group of church friends here, so I have someone to eat with at least once a week.Nodding yes for Sansa!!!

Carolyn, that's so funny that you and Bev have (nearly) matching monkeys! Love the Steiff lamb too! Isn't it nice to still have it, as well as the memories that go with it?

Donna, glad you were able to get your walk in outdoors yesterday. At least when you have to walk at the mall, there are still things to look at, huh?Titter Just not hawks and eagles!

Sara, sounds like you have another busy week shaping up! Enjoy your time with Evan today and then bowling tonight! You're right about the precautions taken last week - it's surely better to be safe than sorry! Our rehearsals are going well - though we just got another piece to learn last week and it's in French! That makes 2 in French, my least favorite language to try to read and sing!sigh sign

I snapped a few shots of some of my stuffed animals this morning - most of them live on top of our headboard tower, so I didn't take them down. Some are bears that Mike started bringing me, wearing T-shirts from the different places he/we went; some pigs that people gave me after I got one as a Christmas gift at our HOG (Harley Owners Group) party; and a few bunnies, one of which a dear friends made for me.

Good to see you back Barbara! Love all your stuffed animals.

Well the heat is back on. The temps will be dropping to a low of 28* tonight. This is so crazy the way we are switching back and forth! It's a wonder we all aren't sick!

I made some yummy cream of potato soup for dinner today. My friend Jan made it for us last week when we went over to visit and play cards. It is such an easy recipe as you use a box of scalloped potatoes minus the
mix, 1 cup of chopped onions, 1 cup of chopped celery, 1 cup cubed ham, and 4 cups chicken broth. Throw all that in a crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours! Mix 1/3 cup flour with 2 cups Half and Half, then add that to the soup and heat another 30 minutes till hot and thickened. To serve, sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of soup.I think the next time I make it, I will make a double batch so I can freeze some for another meal. Along with the soup we had some broccoli salad, and french bread. A nice meal for a chilly evening!

I never did get the Dr. Seus hats made for Sam, Ryan, Tre and Knox yesterday, but I did manage to get them cut out today and will stitch them up tomorrow, providing nothing unforseen comes up. I am still plugging away trying to get all my sewing projects caught up. The hats had to take priority since the birthday party is only 19 days away and I have to mail them to MI. I do have all my laundry done as well as all my ironing! Very Happy

Bev I heard you had more snow there today. Did the boys play outside making snowmen? That's neat how Mr. Pungh comes up with names for his hummers. Did Arya fledge today or will it be another day or two?

Donna did you get the littles outdoors to play today? Less than a week now before our first hatch at the Ozarks!

Sara I think your freezing weather is reaching us during the night. I sure hope it doesn't damage the peach crops, flowers, etc. Everything is blooming or budding. A freeze is not good!

Diane I hope you have a good nights sleep now with the meds the doctor prescribed for you.

Take care Carolyn... When is your new grandson due?

Time to say good night. I just might get a game of canasta in with Don before it's "Mommy Time" with the pups!
Have a good evening all!
