This is my post for Wednesday November 13th….

As you can see by the photo above… Our snow has not stopped falling and is predicted to keep on coming down until Saturday… That could all change in a blink of the eye, as storms do change direction.. It’s fine to predict the weather ahead of time… I once seen a forcaster say it was snowing heavely around our city and the out lying areas.. I looked out the window to see the storm, and to my surprise not a snow flake had fallen on the ground in my area.. I must say, “why don’t news rooms have windows to the outside.. Then they could really see what is happening outside.. Reading the forcast from a machine is okay and used often… But the machine is very seldom right.. That’s how the forcast is done… At least we have a good laugh when the forcast is not right.. The weather is a sensetive action of our hurt planet, and climate change.. You know, everytime I see a fire destroying hectars of land and homes.. It makes me remember a passage I heard as a child in Sunday school… It was a predition that the world would be destroyed by fir.. The flouds came and the Arch was built, and I believe fire will be the end of our planet.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Last week, I finally seen a surgeon about my hurting hand… I waited five months to get to see him.. I think that is crazy and am sad that things are getting so slow in the medical profession.. I guess all the cuts to hospitals, loss of nurses, hospital beds, and god knows what else the government has in plan for the people.. I shake my head in disbelief.. Disappointed by the idiots who run our lives, by cutting whatever they can… Now back to the surgeon visit.. I seem to have a lot of arthritis and a cushion is not where it should be.. Yummy!! Now I know why the pain is so ouchie… Every time I move my hand bone rubs on bone.. At least I know now why it is so painful… He is going to operate, scrape the bone, and fix the empty space.. He would not know if there is futher damage till he goes in.. The operation is not till the end of January 2020.. There ya go, the waiting part of medicine..

I seen on television that Canada’s Wonderland is going to have a festival from November 25th to December 5th this winter.. This is the very first time they have tried this approuch to using the park in the winter.. There will be no rides but, skating, and different events will fill up any visitors time.. I’m quite happy for the park and wish it well for years to come… If you are ever near Toronto, and wish to visit just head north on the hyway four hundred.. You’ll see the place on your right, you can’t miss it.. If you deside to visit I wish you a very pleasent day.. You won’t be disappointed… Some of the ski hills are hoping to be open early this year again… The skiers will be happy about that… For anyone that wishes to know, it is still snowing here.. Lightly, but still snowing.. Everything looks so clean and white.. It’s very pretty… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… Till later. Have a wonderful Wednesday. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Winter.. Yuck!

I will be writing from this blog, as http://www.marionbell.com is having some difficulties.. What they are I have no idea.. Till I get the site mended I will write on this blog site.. I thank you for all your patience in this matter..ย 

It seems to be the time of the season for snow to fall.. Not only will snow fall but temperatures will take a big drop as well.. The snow has been falling here all day long.. There is a call for snow into Tuesday, and that weather is supposed to be quite nasty.. So, if you live around where I do.. (Canada)ย  Be careful out there on the roads.. The conditions have changed and you will need to pay attention to your surroundings.. And for goodness sakes,, “Slow down”ย  your life depends upon road conditions and your speed.. Please be safe…

Today, was remembrance day… I watched the laying of wreaths for the veterans lost in the wars.. There was snow falling pretty hard, as the soldiers marched down the main street of our city.. I remember hearing an older fella answer the question he was asked.. “How do you keep warm?” ย  The man answered with a smile and a chuckle.. “I wore two pairs of pajamas.” He chuckled and said, “Shush, I don’t want anyone to know.” The reporter laughed along with him… Little did he know he was heard over the televisions in many homes, around the world.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This weekend, that has just passed was pleasant enough.. The yard got a leaf removal done.. There are still leaves on a few trees, and a plant of mine that is outside had a white bloom on it.. That plant and it’s bloom have all but died and been frozen.. I have rescued my pepper plant and have it under a grow light… It seems to be doing quite well so far.. Today, I seen some aphids on a couple leaves.. I cleaned them off and I am still wondering where the heck they would have come from.. Guess I will be googling later to find out how to protect this plant from these bugs.. The plant is inside the house and has been for a couple weeks now.. So, all I can do at this point is crush these bugs, and hope I got them all..ย 

chicken chili.jpg ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย ย  Chicken chili..

During this last weekend I took my first stab ever, at making a chicken chili.. The results turned out pretty darn good.. My daughter-in-law can not eat beef at all.. Her tummy says “No way” and in light of that I made it for her.. I really like the taste, and will surely make it again.. I went shopping at Costco, and the place is all festive looking.. Toys, clothes and books for young and old fill the isles.. The pretty colors of wrapping paper and large bows brought a real spark to the surroundings.. Personally, I am not any where near ready for that time of the season.. And, I dis-like shopping all together.. “Grrrr.” I know I will have to make a trip to the stores, but I will have to do that soon and get that over with… We have to find a new tree this year.. We just need a small one, as it is just the hubby and me.. I would imagine the children will plan a get together before the day.. I kind-a hope one of my kids will make Christmas dinner this year.. We will see.. If push comes to shove I will take on the task..

This Monday evening was our grandson’s last swim lesson… He received his certificate for being a good new swimmer.. He does pretty good.. Grand-parents were able to come take photos ofย  the babies in the water.. He was smiling most of the time.. At least till the dunk time came along.. He came out of the water spitting, and sneezing, as tiny tears rolled down his face.. It only took a minute for mom to turn those frowns into smiles.. He just turned six months old and is crawling, and spoke his first clear word.. That was Da Daโ€ฆย  To say the least dad was very happy… Mom, well not so much, but she just laughed it off… She was hoping for him to say momma first.. Now they need baby proof all the house, as he will be all over the place.. It’s cool sitting back and seeing him achieving his growth..ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

These are my thoughts for Wednesday November 6th…

This day has been average for me.. The sun shone so bright today, and filled the living room with a soft inviting glow.. The trees still bend in the wind as so many days before.. The call for snow has chilled me to the bone.. I am dressed in layers to keep me warm.. Today was not a bad day.. It’s late as I finish the words that so many of you will read.. I only hope that you all enjoy the ramblings of an aging lady.. Take care and be safe.. gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… Till tomorrow pleasant dreams… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my chatter for Tuesday November 5th…

Today was a windy day, but later in the day the temperature went up to a balmy nine degrees Celsius.. It was actually quite nice outside.. I still have blooms in my garden and in some hanging pots.. The snow had lightly covered them with, but that did not stop them from growing.. I am very tempted to bring in the potted plants once the call for cold weather and snow comes.. They are so pretty, and I don’t want to see them die..ย  Oh well… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my story for Thursday October 31st.. Halloween..

This is a wonderful time of the year as we all get the chance to be something else.. Other than our usual selves.. The streets fill with smiling faces of children pumped with adrenalin.. The weather never seems to matter to them as fly down the streets in the search for treats.. Be safe out there, and watch out for the little ones on the streets.. Till Tuesday next week.. Enjoy your Halloween… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my Tuesday in a nut shell for Wednesday October 30th…

Today has been a better day as far as being sick is concerned.. I think I’m on the mend.. The symptoms have changed a little.. Today weather wise was nice enough considering the call for rain snow mix.. I hope it does not come so the trick or treaters can have a warm night to go out in.. Please be safe out there on the roads.. Till tomorrow.. I wish you prosperity, and good fortune..:) ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my blurb for Thursday October 24th…

How has everyone been doing this fine week? I have weathered the rain and not too bad of temperatures.. It’s not been cold, but not hot.. Tonight I watched a movie about a family that was caught in a tsunami while they were on holidays.. The family found each other in the end.. The destruction cause by the tsunami wave was devastating.. People were tossed by the raging waters, and it was hard to see why more were not killed.. I pray that will never happen here.. Well, take care of each other.. I wish you good fortune and happiness.. Till Tuesday.. Have a wonderful weekend and a great Friday… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Day dreaming…

This is my blurb for Wednesday October 23rd…

Hello everyone:: Today was a day filled with rain in the earlier part of the day.. The wind has been working very hard at shaking the leave from the tree branches.. Leaves dance down the street, flopping to and froe in the gusty wind.. There are so many leaves on the front lawn and there is not a leafy tree out the front of the house.. The wind has pushed leaves from houses up the street to our front yard.. This is the time of the season that tends to make more work for some and none of others.. The once red leaves on the tree outside the back yard fence, are now blown away.. The bare branches show their skinny limbs.. Fall is a mysterious time, but also a beautiful one…:) Enjoy your fall days, and take care of yourselves.. Till later.. Be safe..

This is my blurb for Tuesday October 22nd…

Hello everyone:: How has your day been? Mine has been unusually warm.. A breeze has been blowing with the slight hint of cool temperatures… I still have plants blooming in the garden, and the colors are beautiful.. Like a breathe of fresh air.. We are hoping that the weekend coming up will be just as pleasant as today.. There is still a lot of garden to get ready for the cold weather.. The man that plows our drive way in the winter put up his drive way markers today.. That’s a sure sign that we don’t have long before the bad weather starts.. I’m hoping that the white powdery stuff does not come early… Till later.. Be safe and help others when you have the means… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Pumpkin patch

DSCN2599 (2).JPG ย ย  The pumpkin patch was fairly busy with families on the hunt for the perfect pumpkin…

http://www.marionbell.com/pumpkin-patch

This is my tale of a day at the pumpkin patch, for Monday October 21st..

The day was the most perfect day for the fall weather.. We packed the family into the car and headed for the pumpkin patch.. The secret must have been out, as many families had the same idea.. The place was crowded with people, and the line up to get in was long.. We had the best time ever.. I would recommend heading out with your families in the search for the perfect pumpkin.. Have yourselves a wonderful Monday.. Till later, be kind to others..
