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!! 😦  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… 🙂

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… 🙂

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 myself  out of control… Speeding down the hill, headed for a group of  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… 🙂

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… 🙂 🙂

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… 🙂 🙂

Rain (9)

This is the last addition to my story for July 12th.

Hello  everyone.. Thursday was a hot muggy day. As the weather forecaster had predicted. By the end of the day there was a cool to cold wind blowing. That made it nice to sleep. I have no idea what Friday, nor the weekend will bring but I pray it will be a great weekend, and a good Friday. Today I had two baby robins fall out of their nest into our backyard. It was their first flight I guess. I freed one baby from the fence, and the other one just appeared on the top of the wooden fence. I watched as mom and dad Robins, fed the little ones enough food to give them the strength they needed to fly. I was happy to finally see the little ones following their parents back to the nest. Now I will be able to sleep well….. You have a great weekend when you get to it… Till later… Be safe… 🙂 🙂

Peanut’s Story (10)

Hello everyone: It’s great to see you all again. Yesterday was fair enough with only sprinkles of rain falling here and there. The wind picked up near the end of the day, which made it feel cooler. Friday has found us again as we draw closer to the weekend. The weather promises to be pretty good with temperatures in the high teens and twenties. Rain will fall likely Saturday, but you never know. The weather can change sometimes at a minutes notice. I wish you all a great Friday, and a fantastic weekend when ya get to it…. Take of yourself and the ones you love.. Be safe… Till, I return Monday with a new story… See you then… 🙂

Peanut’s Story (9)

        Peanut….

Hello everyone: I trust your Wednesday was as great as mine was. It was cold here again, and I could not believe that it was supposed to be fourteen degrees outside. The wind had a chill that seemed to be coming from the north, and would chills ya to the bone. I see that Alberta is battling forest fires already this spring. The states seem to be thrown around like an old shoe in the tornado’s they are having. And the flooding is wreaking havoc on way too many people in this world. It would seem that mother nature has lost her mind. When will we, so called smart humans ever learn that pollution is killing our planet. Global warming will leave us with devastation, that has been brought on by ourselves.. 😦  I must get moving instead of sitting here like a bump on a log.. Take care of the ones you love… be safe on the roads… Till later… Keep a stiff upper lip… 🙂 🙂
