This is my post for Thursday November 21st…

Here it is Thursday November 21st…. I heard on the radio today that we are five weeks away from Christmas… Yikes!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  I am not ready for that time to come around… I know my son and daughter in-law are going to host Christmas dinner this year… It was a nice surprise to know I’m not hosting dinner this year… Thanks to Mark and Tiffany for your kindness… The malls seem to have been pretty busy today.. I did not venture into the chaos and am metering the busyness by the amount of cars in the parking lot… I’m not a crowd dweller.. The sight of all those shoppers makes me feel like I can’t breathe.. I think I will go shopping for gift cards… The only one I can’t do that for is the baby… One way or another I will get it done soon… I wish you all well in the shopping malls… Happy shopping… ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my post for Wednesday November 20th…

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™‚

This is my post for Tuesday November 19th…

As I sit looking at our Christmas tree, I think of Christmas past.. The way the children were and still are very excited on Christmas morning… There was no sleeping in on that day.. The children would not allow that to happen.. I remember when I was young… My Dad would cook breakfast and get us to eat before we opened presents… He made bacon, eggs and toast.. A breakfast that we only got on Christmas Day… You got an orange as well, and that hard ribbon candy… It was a time of the year I will never forget… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Half way there…

cold.jpg ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย ย  Now, that’s cold…

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™‚

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™‚

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™‚

Today’s wind…

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 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™‚
