This is my story for Wednesday December 18th…

It’s getting closer to the day Santa comes to all the good boys and girls.. Soon the stations will be tracking Santa all around the world, like they always have… Soon the Christmas Story will be playing non stop on a channel everyone can get… What ever happened to Daniel and his dog Goliath and the story of Jesus?? I used to watch that when I was a lot younger… I kind a liked that little animation… If you know what I am talking about drop me a line… I’d like to know how many of us remember him and his dog… 🙂 🙂

This is my story for Tuesday December 17th…

How was the weekend for ya that just passed?? Mine was good, and the snow fall was amazing.. I have photos of the huge snowflakes that were falling… I have been working on getting ready for Christmas.. The majority of the family will be here Sunday to receive their gifts… The children all have different plans for Christmas this year… It seems when the children grow up their lives become busy… We all seem to find away to spend sometime together… 🙂 🙂

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… 🙂 🙂

This is my post for Wednesday November 27th…

I hope you have all had a wonderful day on this Tuesday? My day was good again, and the sun shone really warm and bright… Right now it is freezing outside… I let the dogs out and had to get on my heavy sweater just to go out with them.. I had a pretty good chill going on after being outside… There is a chance of snow coming to visit us over the next week… “Crap I’m not wanting to be plunged into winter weather again.. Be safe out there, and be good… 

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

This is my post for Tuesday November 26th…

This topic is a hard one for me to write, and I am telling it in my words and only my words… This weekend was great and this Monday was beyond beautiful.. It reminded me of the early spring, where the air is cool and refreshing… I left my living room door open today to air out the room.. Refreshing is what it felt like with the breeze eventually chilling me to the bone… But, the room was smelling fresh to the nose… I hope your weekend was as enjoyable as mine… Till later I wish everyone a wonderful Tuesday…

Winter.. Yuck!

winter snow.jpg                   Trails covered in white puffy snow…

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…

road conditions.jpg               Bad weather, nasty road conditions…

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.. 

chicken chili.jpg              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..

DSCN2807 (2).JPG       Swimming lessons…

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 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… 🙂 🙂

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… See you when I return.. 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Wednesday August 28th…

Hello all you fine people:: How’s it been going?? How was your Tuesday?? Mine, well it was wet.. The weatherman sure was right when he said rain.. It rained over night, today, and there is expected to be rain again tonight.. How much fun can one person have?? Wet kind of fun I don’t like so much.. Because of the rain it has become hot and muggy again.. ‘Come on I liked the weather the way it was before..’ I hope the muggy goes away by tomorrow.. This whole week is supposed to be filled with rain showers.. By, Saturday the weather is supposed to turn nice again, just a little more like fall weather.. I’m okay with that.. I can put on warmer clothing.. ‘No problem..’ Well, I got to go.. Take care of yours, and be safe.. Till later… Watch out for Pigeons… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Tuesday August 20th..

Hello everyone:: Monday has gone, and we are into Tuesday. Before we know it the weekend will be upon us.. I hope your Monday was prosperous, and a blast for anyone you came in tough with.. My Monday was quite enjoyable even if it rained the majority of the night.. I love how even the brown grass turns to green.. There are a lot of brown lawns out there, and I see them when ever I’m out.. The day started out warm then got cool enough too sit outside, and watch the world go by.. The best way to spend your time.. I find there are so many people who peak our interest.. The differences between people is not limited to size and hieght.. Just sit in the mall and you will see what I mean.. You may be looked at by a watcher like I am.. Well, This gals got to run.. You take care, and be safe.. Till later.. Never stand in the shadows of others.. Stand tall on your own… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Monday August 12th.

Hello everyone.. Well that was another weekend done and over with.. We are starting another week. We will be drawing even closer to the middle of August, and creeping up on the last long weekend of summer.. This spring and summer have flown by like the geese that fly over head.. I hope all  of you enjoyed your time with your families and friends.. The smell of barbeque still linger on my mind as I sit with a full belly.. I think it feels like a nap is coming my way.. Took a trip to visit family at a camp ground. The place was great, and I wouldn’t mind going there to stay myself.. If anyone went camping this last weekend, I hope you all had loads of fun and relaxation. It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and breath in the fresh air.. Well, I need to work on getting rid of this rotten headache… You all take care.. Till later.. 🙂 🙂
