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… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my post for Thursday December 12th…

How has everyone been doing?ย  I trust your Wednesday was great and profitable… My day was quite nice as I had time to go visit with my fella Parker… He is starting to say nana now which is great to hear… He’s becoming quite the grumpy little man at times.. He is fighting sleep a lot.. He always seems to be hungry… I can’t believe how much he has grown up… He is now seven months and is a going concern… He is teething and he wakes up screaming… It’s really hard on his mom and dad.. Mom never seems to get a lot of sleep… We are all waiting for the time of the grumpys to go away… Well, everybody, I will see you all on Tuesday next week… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… Take care and have a great weekend… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This the first part of my story for Wednesday December 11th…

This day has been one of snow again.. It’s minus 11 outside and you would freeze off you fingers if ya didn’t have a warm gloves… Tonight or tomorrow is going to be a carbon copy of today (Tuesday)… We went out to the Mandarin this evening to celebrate a birthday.. It has been along time since we have been there to eat.. The price has gone up like all places now… It cost near 30 dollars a person… Now I’m not one of those people who can eat that kind of food… The place is raking in the money for sure.. And we can’t even take home a doggie bag for Fidoโ€ฆ What’s this world coming to????

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™‚

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™‚

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 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

Pumpkin patch

This is my tale of a day at the pumpkin patch, for Monday October 21st..

The day was the most perfect day for the fall weather.. We packed the family into the car and headed for the pumpkin patch.. The secret must have been out, as many families had the same idea.. The place was crowded with people, and the line up to get in was long.. We had the best time ever.. I would recommend heading out with your families in the search for the perfect pumpkin.. Have yourselves a wonderful Monday.. Till later, be kind to others..

This is my banter for Wednesday August 21st..

Hello there:: I hope everyone survided Tuesday.. We are now in the middle of the week. “Hump Day”ย  There is no place to go from here but to the weekend.. I vote for four day weeks, and a long weekend every week.. ‘Is anybody with me on this??’ Our day was hot, and we have a warning for a storm that could hit us on this Tuesday night.. I’ll keep my open for it to happen.. On Wednesday, where I live it is going to be hot and humid.. I know where I’m going to be.. Right here in the house where it’s cool.. I may even hide in the basement.. It’s really cool down there.. I could even sit with all the dead Halloween people I have stored there.. It’s a little creepy, but I don’t mind.. My hubbies sisters came to visit, and would not go to the basement once they seen the people who reside there.. We jokingly said they had to sleep down there.. That didn’t go over well at all.. This gal is going to try and get some shut eye.. You take care, and be safe.. Till later.. Don’t walk in traffic… 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™‚
