Going to lunch today with my best beau, Teddy Bear. That's his Valetine's treat to me. Oh yea..I don't have to do the cooking and cleaning.:):) I hope all of you get something nice today, hugs, kisses, cards, chocolates, or maybe flowers. xoxo

This card makes me remember all the times I used to go to Florida. I went to Daytona Beach every year for 20 years. Always in February .....that is when we need a break in our winter routine.
If we get nasty weather today, I am going to sit and look at this card and dream I am at the beach. :):) Thank you Diane. xoxo

When laying these bricks, we dig out the area, about 8 inches or more deep. lay in a layer of sand, tamp it down, then lay on the bricks. Throw sand on top of it and work down in between the bricks with a broom, water that down and add more sand. Keep doing the sand thing till you can no longer add any. Moss has grown in between our bricks, I like the looks of that.. :):)
Hope the northeast gets dug out and their power back on. It's scary for all those people. Let's keep them in our thoughts and prayers. xo

Ted Bear and I went to breakfast with some of our old co-workers. I was the only female there. I tell them bring your wives. I used to work with all these fellows. Some were and are gentlemen ...some , well just not so nice at times. Some have changed, since work isn't involved. Some have changed because they are older now. But all in all , it was a fun get together. Monday I'll be meeting up with my classmates for brunch. Sounds like I am busy. I have to say though, just getting out and being with others is helping with my winter blues. :):)

I loved these neighbors. You always knew they loved each other. Never any harsh words between them, that I ever heard. They were a joy to meet out anywhere. Or just stand at the edge of our yard and have a conversation. I have stayed in touch with them since we moved, by sending cards and notes. I know that Helen's husband will be fine, as he will spend time with his son and g.daughters. I will still send cards, because Leroy's sister ask me to please remember him.
Have you ever had neighbor's you truly adored? Believe me Helen and Leroy are absolutely the kind of neighbor's that we all want. Kind to their family and everyone they met. I will miss Helen.
Let's keep those in the path of the fierce winter storm in our prayers. Enjoy this day. xo

Thanks to all of you who let me know, I am not alone in my Walmart complaints. I do shop local when I can. I had gone to lunch yesterday in Kokomo. Met up with my daughter Karen. We thought since we were out we'd just go to Walmart to get some things. Lesson learned !!!
I would like to hear from some of you about what you do to motivate yourselves. I am beginning to feel like a sloth. At this moment, if I jumped on a turtle's back , I would say ,"wheeee" The turtle would say, "one at a time, please." :):)

My mother passed away after having surgery on colon cancer. It was a small spot, that needed to be removed. She did very well, woke from the surgery, talked, but was sleepy. But in the night she fell so deep asleep, her kidneys shut down, then it was just one thing after another.
Mom had 11 children....10 surgeries from an auto accident....open heart surgery for a quadtriple bypass,...surgery for a brain aneurism.....So you can see where we thought our mother was superwoman. Never dreamed we would ever be without her. I ask all of you today who still have your mothers, hug her for me. xoxo

We are plenty cold here. The sun is shining on and off today and that is a big plus. I hope all of you out there in blogland have a great weekend. xo
