This is my post for Tuesday December 3rd…

The weekend is over and we are into another week.. It will not officially be winter until the 21st of this month… We have received snow already that seems like it will stay on the ground… We are not too far away from Christmas Day and it just keeps getting closer… The stores are filled to the capacity… The shelves are empty after all the shoppers head home… Over night the shelves are filled, and the shoppers return… The holiday ritual is on the go again… I wish everyone a great shopping experience… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Half way there…

I looked at the calendar today… I was hit with the reality that by Friday we will have hit the middle of November.. Where the heck has this month gone?? The start of the month was looking pretty darn good… Now, it has all gone to pot.. It amazes me how quickly the days pass by… I don’t know about you but, I’m cold, and I’ve even turned the heat up a little higher.. That’s not like me at all… If anything, I’m the one turning down the heat.. I have covered the bed with warm blankets, and a down filled comforter.. Sure the bed is cool under all those covers… Once you thrash around a bit, the sheets warm up some.. Unlike the couple in the photo above, I haven’t gone to winter coat wear as of yet… I hope you are keeping warm as well.. I’m speaking about all those who are experiencing winter conditions.. If you live in a place that is always warm.. I’m very jealous… ๐Ÿ™‚

While looking through the buy and sell adds on Facebook… I happened to notice various people asking for orders for Christmas desserts… There were also decorations for the outside of a person’s home.. Those decorations were quite impressive.. Lots of gift ideas for the holiday season.. On our news there was an arsonist that started a fire in a car repair shop a few days back.. Today, (Wednesday) the news showed the video tape of the fire.. The person who started was running from the fire… The only thing was, he was on fire… It’s pretty sad… The burns he would have experienced would be rather horrific, and very painful… The ski hills were all talking about being open by this weekend.. Wow! That’s really fast.. They have been working each night to build up a solid base of snow.. I never have been a skier, and never will… Each time I think about trying skiing, I see myselfย  out of control… Speeding down the hill, headed for a group ofย  skiers.. I take all of them out, all at once.. There I am laying lifeless in a pile of moaning bodies.. May sound pretty funny, but not to me it don’t.. So if you decide to ski this coming weekend, watch out for the out of control person speeding down the hill behind you… ๐Ÿ™‚

fella cold.jpg ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  This photo is fascinating..

I applaud the photographer that took this photo.. The frost that has gathered on this creation is stunning.. The eyes are almost real in reflection… The pose in it’s self is so realistic, that one would think this is a real living man.. I believe it tells a story of aging and being frozen in time.. He is waiting for a return to his former self, and a life he once lived.. At least this is what I see… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m here again…

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™‚

This is my chatter for Thursday November 7th…

Today was cold, and snow fell on the ground.. Not much stayed, but some of it did and that’s not a good sign.. For all those that got more snow than us I feel your pain.. The gas prices will be hicked-up soon as skiers and snow boarders trek to the hills for fun.. I have yet to see a reason to raise those prices… Other than there is a lot of gouging money from the pockets of people… Why is there not something being done about this injustice.. Now we have the carbon tax added to the price of gas.. How wonderful for all of us.. The government needs the money to cover their frivolous spending.. And to think they are back in power again and can repeat their spending.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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™‚

Spooky day…

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™‚

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..

I wish to let all my readers and friends know that as of Saturday October 5th to Friday October 18th… I will be away and unable to post my words and photos… I will be posting on Monday October 21st.. Thank you all for understanding.. I will see you once I return home.. Be safe.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

Hello all you savvy people out there:: Thanksgiving is getting closer with each day.. The stores don’t seem to have the deals on turkey’s they used to.. Like everything else they are getting really expensive like all things we need to keep us alive.. I feel sorry for all the families that find it hard to feed their families.. The food banks will be hard at work making food hampers for the less fortunate.. If you can spare some money or even some food items.. Please drop them off at the food banks near you and make a hungry child’s Thanksgiving a happy one.. You enjoy your Thanksgivings as I will do the same.. Take care and be safe.. Till later.. Remember others who need help on this holiday… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… See you when I return.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my banter for Thursday October 3rd…

Hello all you beautiful people:: I trust everything is well with you and your family.. We are all as snug as a bug in a rug.. My day has been pretty laid back.. I cooked up a storm today.. I had home made from scratch chili and spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove.. The house was filled with the comforting smell of food.. When the hubby woke from his sleep he was drawn downstairs by the aroma… As soon as the grandson entered the house after work the smell made him instantly hungry.. I had garlic toast with cheese set up and ready to cook under the broiler.. For dinner I gave the guys a choice of one or the other… They chose both.. The sauce and chili was a big hit.. I did it again.. Well, I’m blowing this popcorn stand.. Take care and be safe.. Till later… Stand up for what you believe in… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
