Cold, Cold, Freezing… I would not want to be anyone who has to be out in this cold tonight… I hope that there is enough room in the shelters to have the homeless off the streets this evening… A warm bed and food will be the best medicine for the less fortunate… The food banks have been filling their shelves with food to help those in need… The Christmas hampers will be out next week for the less fortunate families… I wish everyone a very happy weekend, and be safe out there on the roads… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

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… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Today we had the most beautiful snow fall.. It’s the kind of snow fall you see on Christmas Cards… Big fluffy flakes that land on your nose and melt away slowly… I went out to shovel the snow and it really is heavy… There is so much moisture in the fallen snow.. If you are out there and have to shovel snow, be very careful… Also, watch out where you walk it will be slippery… Take good care out there… I’ll be back to see you on Tuesday December 5th… Till then have a great weekend… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Do you ever have days that seem to be slipping away too darn fast? Well, I do… Today happens to be one of those days.. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.. I scurry around like a squirrel hiding it’s nuts for winter.. This has to be done, and that does too.. Dinner will soon fill my time and so will the clean up.. Then I will have to poke away at the left over laundry that has been stalking me since yesterday.. That which is left over from the laundry the day before…ย  Once the sun goes down and I am fast asleepโ€ฆ I will wake to not enough hours in my next day of getting it done… Eventually, it will be finished as time and hours have a way of doing that to us… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… Till Thursday… Enjoy your 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

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™‚

This is my banter for Wednesday August 14th..

Hello all you wonderful people:: My day was hot and I took it easy for a change.. What did you all do on this great day.. I hope whatever you did it was fun.. We all need fun in our lives from time to time.. Life tends to become just boring, and repetitive.. That takes all the fun out of work and home life.. So, get out there, and do something interesting.. If you are a home body, then just have a spa day, or watch a movie that you would not normally watch.. Change, throws a wrench into the whole hum drum thing.. Don’t forget that everyone counts.. If you have a mate that will do the dinner instead of you, then just stand back and let him create.. Help others when you can and give to the human society.ย  Their work is for those who need us to take care of them… We are their voice.. Pets.. Well, people I will be on my way… Till later.. Keep trucking on… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my banter for August 8th.

Hello everyone.. Today was my chance to get away from home and go visit. I wanted to see my grand-baby Parker and his mom. Today he was three months old, and he has grown like a weed. My how time flies.. It’s nice to get away for a few hours. I don’t do that as much as I should. But I’m doing my best. Grant you, during the winter I will likely not be out as much.. I can drive the roads with no problems. After all I’m an old trucker.. When I did that job, I loved the traveling to different place in the USA. I even got to see the ocean for my first time. It’s beautiful. If you’ve have never seen it before, make the trip it is worth it. I met a lot of nice people and some pretty nasty ones. I want to travel, and live in a motor home for a couple years. But that seems to be nothing more than a dream.. Well I must go.. You take care… and I’ll see ya tomorrow… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my banter for August 6th…

Hello everyone.. I trust all of you had a great fun filled long weekend. The weather in this corner of the universe was quite hot during the day, and cool in the evenings. Cooler temps at night always make sleeping much nicer. The heat tends to keep all of us night owls up for most of the night. I have somewhat of a hard time sleeping, as I tend to think too much, and walk a million miles, brought on by restless leg crap. One way or the other I fall to sleep in the wee hours of the morning.. While I was sick and off for the last week, I had no problem sleeping for the first few days. I guess, being sick will cause that. I’m feeling some what better, but the head aches keep returning. I will not go to the doctor, as the majority of them are quacks. I have learned how to put the pain at bay, but it’s usually not far away…. I appreciate your kindness, and your patience.. Till later… Keep the right side up… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the last part to my story for Friday July 25th.

Hi everyone… The heat has struck the world again. This weekend will be quite warm and sticky. If you are a lot like myself, people will find us inside by the fan that blows the most cool air. I do not like the humidity. I have this thing about my clothes clinging to my sticky body. It feels like, trying to get dressed after stepping out of a shower. And not getting dried off enough. Just one of those things I’m not finding, my most fondest thing to do.ย I hope that if it is hot where you live, that you could do me a favor. Please make sure there is water outside for the furry, feathery, and hairless critters that depend on us to help them stay a live. Bring our pets inside, and out of the heat. Hydrate often, check on seniors, and your neighbors to make sure they are okay.. Lend a hand when ever you can…. Someone will appreciate you for it… Till next week.. Have a great weekend and Friday…. Be safe… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the next part to my story for Thursday July 25th.

Hello all you fine people out there.. Wednesday was a great day, with warm temperatures in the morning and cool temperatures in the afternoon. It is currently seventeen degrees Celsius. Just the right kind of weather for sleeping comfortably. Today was my grandson’s birthday. He turned fourteen. My how time flies. A baby one day and a teen the next. Thursday is surgery for one of my dogs. It’s just spay, and really nothing to worry about. But, worry I will, after all she is so little and tiny. I will worry till I get to bring her home in the evening…. She will be in good hands as the doctor is really nice… Well, Till Later…. Keep hydrated when it’s hot, your life depends on it… Keep smiling… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
