It seems like I"ve been saying sorry a lot lately for not being out here on a steady basis.  Sometimes suff just gets in the way.  Doing what I can to help with the bathroom reno, all the normal stuff, and just plain tired lately.  I promise to try and do better.
Had my annual checkup last weekk and all came out good, though she checked and decided I am due for a Mammogram and bone density check.  So I get those Thurs.  Then coming up in Dec. is my skin doctor check and 6 mo. check after the cataract fix.  That should be it for the rest of this year. 
Today is my daughter Darla's 49 birthday.  It really doesn't seem like that long ago they put the beautiful little curly haired baby in my arms.  There she was, all blue eyed and a full head of haired that had blond tipped ends.  Now she is a beautiful confident woman who is always there for friends and family.  Happy Birthday Darla.  We Love You!
Not happy with this snowfall already.  I could use a bit more summer and fall, but it is what we have so deal we do.  Funny thing is, as much as I don't like the cold and snow, I just can't imagine being anywhere else.  I think most of us feel that way about where we live.  Jack has suggested at time that we should look into winters in Fla. or somewhere, but I just don't like the idea of being away from family.  Guess the closeness we all have is much better than having to add extra layers any day. 
As to all that.  I think I'll head to couch, the afghan and the puppy.  Oreo is a good little heater and loves sitting in my lap or against me when I'm tucked in there.  Hope your keeping warm.  


  1. I am so glad all went well with your checkup!!
    We had now here last night, 1 inch. The sun was out today and even though it stayed cold the snow melted away.

  2. Life gets in my way too and not blogging much. Happy birthday to your Darla.
    She sounds like a keeper :-)
    No snow here but the cold snap came here and will get warmer by Friday. We are usually 10 degrees warmer than east central WI. I don't blame you one bit for staying near family as close as yours is. I envy that. I am happy for you. We moved here for milder winters but the summers we didn't know was so HOT. Glad you got a good checkup.

  3. Whew, I'm happy to know you were missing because of being busy. Was worried maybe something was wrong. I think you got more snow that what we got - just a trace here, but I could see it moving south as the day went on. Yes, animals (cats or dogs) make wonderful electric blankets. I love snuggling up with one or the other in my lap. Makes me want to take a nap too.

  4. I do the same thing. There are periods when I just don't get to Blogger. Life can get busy at times.
    Good check ups are always a relief. Good for you..

  5. Three weeks for me and sometimes longer..when there is nothing much happening or stuff you really don't or can't blog about then you just don't do it anymore. I lost a ton of willpower to keep mine going..no one bothered to respond or just could not get through there. Blogger messed me up big time so I pulled back a lot. Know how it is for sure. As for snow ours melted and going to be 60 today or tomorrow..it's a freaking heat wave.. Nov. is nuts this year!!
