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.. 

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)  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”  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?”   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.. 🙂 🙂

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..

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 of  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 Da…  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..  🙂 🙂

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..:) 🙂

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… Thanks for your kindness.. 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Thursday September 19th…

Hello everyone out there on this planet called Earth::  I trust everyone is healthy and happy.. I hope you enjoyed your Wednesday as I did.. I got a chance to venture outside and enjoy the sun shine, and cool breezes.. I harvested a few seeds and set them aside to dry.. I will later place the seeds in containers for the winter.. About the middle of May I will plant them in small containers so they can get a head start on the planting season.. I know I’m a bit ahead of myself.. But, why wait till the last minute.. For now I get enjoy the flowers that are blooming in the garden.. Enjoy the blooms out and about… Their color will only be here for a bit longer.. Well, I’m heading out into the traffic.. Take care and be safe.. Till later… Keep your eyes on the road..  🙂 🙂

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS.. Have a great day today…. 🙂 🙂
