April 2022 $50 Giveaway

Hello April!! #Giveaway Win $50 Your Way! April 2022

Hello, little Peanuts.  This month’s update is rather boring. I actually had to scroll through pictures on my phone to think of what I did in March. I was thinking that we didn’t do a hell of a lot. AND THEN I REMEMBERED!

Got the car stuck on the drive. The driveway was solid ice. I slid backward and truly thought we were going over the side down the mountain. After three of those tries, The Husband brought out the tractor. While he was adding the shovel to the tractor our tenant Patty pulled up behind my car. While we were chatting, her car started sliding backward all I could do was cover my eyes. THANKFULLY it hit a rut and stopped. Talk about STRESS! SERIOUSLY!!

Two days later The Husbands truck ……… same thing. THANK HEAVENS for Ferdinand The Bull. (The Tractor)

The weather has warmed up a little (high 40’s) so the snow started melting and flooded the garage which leaked to the craft-room and it flooded. WHAT A MESS. However, that prompted a serious cleaning of the laundry room.  Cabinets are finally hung and everything is organized. I added a “Alexa Do My Laundry” command which she replies: I love you. You make me laugh. BUT Hellz NO

YES, I do think I’m funny. I crack myself up all the time!!

I finally fix the Moose antler. It’s finally attached after spending more on glues than the dang thing is worth. (Thank you all for the JB Weld idea it worked great).

Uncle Zac took Alice to the Boots and Beauties 5th-grade dance. I can’t stop laughing at the look on Alice’s face.

After checking my pictures I realized I actually DID have a productive month. I hope you had a great March and have an amazing April!

    The day has just started so not sure how it is going to go, but I did get to watch our neighboring owl do a bit of hunting for worms before a deer got curious as to what he was doing and he flew away.

  • Tamra+Phelps

    Wow, April is all but over. Summer will be here soon and it seems Spring is just now getting going. Spring & Autumn just don’t seem to be like they used to–it’s always either baking hot or freezing cold. Don’t tell me climate change isn’t real.

  • Karen R

    Today was a good day. The temps were in the 70 degree range. A friend came for a visit. We had pizza for dinner and watched a good movie on Hulu.

  • Shelly Peterson

    I had the grandbaby over night, I didnt get much sleep. I am heading to my nieces later for a bbq and game night.

  • heather

    My day is off to a nice quiet start. We are getting some much needed rain here so I am just doing stuff around the house today after I get back from the grocery store. Hope you have a nice Saturday.

  • gloria patterson

    Having a good day wrapped birthday and Mothers Day gifts. Then I took time to clean out a few more drawers…………. slowly but surely I am getting them all done. Little time on the computer and then ………………………………………………….??

  • Kim+Avery

    My day is just beginning and looks like a beautiful day to start straightening up flower beds unfortunately my back is telling me otherwise.

  • Michele+Soyer

    Amazingly last evening my handyman came with the part and in about 1 hour fixed my front door! So grateful – he didn’t want us to worry and wait.. Good man.. I plan on staying quiet today solar eclipse.. baking some bread and coconut sweetbread….

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I’m feeling really unsettled. It’s just that I’m so impatient for things to move on plus the equinox, lack of a decent night’s sleep etc.

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good so far. Way too many phone calls today ready to turn the phone off! lol Hope you are having a nice Friday.

  • Michele+Soyer

    Well the door is going to be more complicated than I had thought – specific hinge stuff has to be sorted out so handyman will do so and come on Sunday to do the work – today after class going to start the chlorine scrub of the back steps, landing area – every 2 months just doesn’t cut it….Happy Friday all and watch Pluto go Rx today and tomorrow is the solar eclipse on the Taurus/Scorpio axis!!

  • Tamra+Phelps

    I seem to be having few days where I just feel so unsettled. I have no idea why, maybe all the little stresses are catching up to me.

  • gloria patterson

    Finally at 3:30 today they replaced the battery in my smoke detector!!!! At 2am this morning I would loved to have beat it to death it just kept getting louder. It is so quite and peaceful now

  • heather

    My day is going really good so far. I got up super early and did my running around town early and it was nice and quiet and now I am home to relax for a bit then off to make dinner.

  • Kim+Avery

    Finally a day of R&R. Now if I could only think of something fabulous to make my husband for supper my day is complete! With my running back & forth with my mom plus crazy food prices limiting different options he’s been grumbling.

    • Tamra+Phelps

      I hate those moments when life does a complete U-turn. I hope you get good news from your sister soon and that your life in general soon starts to feel more settled and less stressful.

  • Michele+Soyer

    Well this morning the front door finally came off the top hinge – I have been watching this and waiting for this day.. should I have called the handyman sooner? yes of course – did I put it out of my mind – yes…so here we are.. thank goodness it did not smash down and all the etched glass break….handyman coming this morning….arghhhhh

  • gloria patterson

    I was having a OK day till about 5pm …………….. And I heard a chirp!!! Smoke detector battery!! I had to stand under each one till I could tell it was the bedroom detector. So I will have to live with it till sometime tomorrow when maintenance comes to change the battery. GOING TO BE A LONG NIGHT BECAUSE IT WILL GET LOUDER AS THE NIGHT GOES ON

  • Sarah+L

    Lovely surprise today. The Zoom thing I did yesterday sent me $100 not the $50 I was expecting, so I’m very happy. This evening I have a training call about doing volunteer computer work for the elections. I want to help but hate doing phone banks and can no longer do the walking/door knocking.

  • heather

    My day is going ok so far just doing some stuff online and around the house. Going shopping tomorrow and need to make a list so I don’t forget anything.

  • Tamra+Phelps

    Ugh, a little queasy today. Nothing too bad, just an upset tummy, lol. Chugged some Pepto and hopefully it’ll settle down.

  • Sarah L

    Sort of a quiet day at home. Had a Zoom interview for $50 for an hour of my time and opinions.
    73 degrees with some sun and almost no wind.

  • gloria patterson

    Nice day yesterday was high of 86 and windows open……………… today almost 50 and rainy……… rest of the week temps are down down

  • Kate Sarsfield

    No real news today. Went for a walk in the grounds of Strokestown House (Google it!). It’s just next door to me and I do need fresh air and a bit of tree-hugging to keep me sane!

  • Tamra Phelps

    Well, the bird’s nest over the front porch light was blown down last night (it got really windy here.) Hopefully, she has started a new one somewhere.

  • Sarah L

    Quiet day at home. Getting my newish laptop working in order to do a Zoom interview tomorrow. Had a couple of glitches but got it working now. 54 degrees with some sun. 70 tomorrow.

  • gloria patterson

    We had a high of 88 today……………… Had the car windows open and the air felt so good. the rest of the week goes down high with highs of 50’s and rain

  • Kate Sarsfield

    My house hunt dream has been invaded by the brothers of the vendor who want to hold out for more money. So disappointed & quite a bit angry. The agent is very apologetic & embarrassed about it & hopes to convince the boys to accept my offer as the vendor is still officially sane! Will know more tomorrow.

    • Tamra Phelps

      Seriously??? If it’s her house, can’t she make her own decision?? Lord save me from brothers who think they know it all, lol. (Don’t tell Rob I said that!) I’m sending out good vibes into the Universe for you!!

  • Kim Avery

    My poor mom. While dealing with everything after her hip surgery her cat passed away today. I went and got him and was going to bury him by the pond but ground was too hard so I set him in the woods and covered him with leaves and twigs. My son took the leftover cat food & litter. She says she didn’t want another one even though my son has one almost identical ready to go.

    • Kate Sarsfield

      Aw, Kim! Your poor Mum. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved cat. After Dad died, his cat pined away & I had to have him put to sleep. Like you, the ground was still to hard to dig a hole & I was in a wheelchair at the time so I made an executive decision & wrapped him in a blanket & popped him in the deep freeze! He was buried with pomp & ceremony 2 months later.

  • Polly Hall

    Not a good day, trying to work on the dock in the rain, husband took a dunk a few times in the freezing water. Realizes now that he should of waited a few more weeks for warmer water.

  • Tamra Phelps

    Today was dump your big stuff day, lol. I think they actually call it Clean Up Day or something…anyway, you can through out big stuff a few days every year around Spring cleaning time by either sitting it out by the curb for the garbage truck guys to pick up, or by taking a load to a designated spot in the county and not have to pay a fee. My brother and youngest nephew came by and took an old loveseat I wanted to get rid of. Now I just have to get him to bring my old recliner out of storage in his garage…

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good just have a nice quiet Sunday here. Catching up on some paperwork and chores around the house.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    A group of 10 refugees from Ukraine have just arrived at the Bed & Breakfast. They’ll stay here a couple of days to rest – thank goodness for Google Translate!

    • Tamra Phelps

      On my way to the doctor the other day, in a town about half an hour from here–I saw a house that has a big flag pole with an American flag, and they had added an Ukrainian flag to the pole.

      • Kate Sarsfield

        Good! My only concern is that taking in refugees overtakes the already huge numbers of homeless people. This doesn’t mean that I’m rascist or anti-immigrants, just worried. Eg: Ireland has welcomed about 10,000 refugees so far, and rightly so, but we already have about 8k homeless people.

        • Tamra Phelps

          I don’t think it makes you racist to point out a potential problem. Clearly, resources have to be found for the homeless so they don’t suffer more because the resources that would have been for them have gone to the new arrivals. I suspect that most of those coming from Ukraine would very much like to go home again when they can…hopefully they will get their lives back soon, either when Putin gets it through his head he’s not going to just be allowed to walk in to Ukraine and take over, or when he just drops dead…either is good by me.

          • Kate Sarsfield

            Thanks Tamra, knew you’d understand my point of view. Ireland is a very small country with a very big heart but that means limited resources unfortunately. That’s what makes it so difficult to rationalise.

  • Nancy

    My day has gone fine so far. Family came to visit and we did a small crafts project together. It is a sunny day and should get up to 85 degrees!

  • Michele Soyer

    So glad that this week is done! Was going to try and make mass today but the virus counts per day have gone up a good bit and the Education Ministry has closed 2 secondary schools and 3 primary schools – staying home…All here have a pleasant Sunday!

  • Tamra Phelps

    My front porch is a mess, lol. The bird building a nest over the porchlight is dropping her twigs and grass all over the place.

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good did a lot of running around and got a lot of shopping done for the weekend. The weather is really nice here today about 70 degrees and sunny.

  • gloria patterson

    Good day was out on the glide awhile enjoying the sunshine. I started a new book today it is so good hate to put it down………….

  • Michele Soyer

    I have been avoiding the fact that the spin cycle on my washer is not up to snuff – having to wring some things out – I believe that the floor is uneven there due to tiles raising up – Today is the day! going to disconnect and move the washer and do some investigating! Wish me luck all !

  • Tamra Phelps

    The bird who built a nest over my porchlight last year seems to be back. she’s building a nice little home out there, lol.

  • Sarah L

    I was planning on going the the Denver Museum of Science and Nature today. But the air is full of smoke and the wind is blowing with gusts up to 50 mph. Hit a record high of 89 today with 5 percent humidity.

  • gloria patterson

    nice day did a little shopping our temp got up to 70 today and calling for 80+ tomorrow. I noticed that all garden centers had their plants out under tents………………… Makes me wish I had a porch for hanging plants

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good sure am getting a lot work done around the house today almost all caught up on laundry. I am sitting down and taking a little break right now. Hope you having a great day.

  • Kim Avery

    After the week I had with taking care of my mom I enjoyed staying home & napping most of the day. The ladies in her apt building put together a meal train for next week so I can take a break. Luckily one of her friends was a nurse so she’s been changing the dressing and today helped her shower.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Talk about cat on a hot tin roof or ants in my pants! I’m going to do something hundrum like cleaning out the car and I’ll go for a walk to stop my brain from whirring. The trees are greening, the birds are nesting and there’s hope in the air.

  • Tamra Phelps

    I think the weather is getting a little warmer –for a few days. It’s going to freeze again in a few days, lol. Oh, Spring…where the h#$$ are you?

  • Sarah L

    Good swim with friends. Then a quick trip to the library to pick up 2 books I put on hold. Sunny and 81 degrees today. Fire weather tomorrow.

  • Kim Avery

    Its been a wild and crazy few days! Between running my son to work & back, my mom having hip surgery & taking care of her after. Tonight a friend is staying with her so I can get some sleep.

  • gloria patterson

    being totally lazy

    Have been watching some old tv western in black and white. So many character actors in them that became famous

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I have just paid the booking deposit on my first home. Sorry, that should have read: I HAVE JUST PAID THE BOOKING DEPOSIT ON MY FIRST HOME!!!!!!!!!
    The old lady thought the story of my viewing so funny that she accepted my offer! It’ll be next week by the time I hear any more … my stomach is churning and my hands trembling … I know I should feel excited but the pessimist/realist in me is telling me to calm down, breathe and take it one step at a time. Phew!

    • Tamra Phelps

      Yes!!! I was hoping it would be the one. Does the lady (and her sister) live in the same town as her old house?? Maybe you just made new friends in your new town.

      • Kate Sarsfield

        No, she’s originally from the UK & moved back to be together at the beginning of the pandemic. Not worried about making friends yet besides there’s a drama group, choirs etc. in the town (Swinford, Co. Mayo). Let me get the keys to the door first! Baby steps, Tamra 🙂

  • Mishelle G

    My days going really well (knock on wood) it’s sunny and the kids I’m taking care today are great and it seems like we’ll even get outside to play.

    Mishelle G

  • Tamra Phelps

    It’s been a day, lol. Sometimes I let myself get all frustrated by the silliest things–like trying to figure out to do the most basic things with a new tablet… I mean, whatever happened to instructions?? Nothing comes with them any more. You are just expected to google it or find a You Tube video or just go by osmosis, lol. Or call a 12 year old you know.

  • Sarah L

    Quiet day at home. Beautiful day outside: 72 degrees with lots of sun. A couple more fires today. Hight winds for tomorrow.

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good just got home from getting my second Covid booster shot sure did sting but it’s worth it. Now I am getting things done before the big weather hits us today.

  • gloria patterson

    Long story Short version 🙂 Out to the car Sunday to go to dinner at my brother’s. Car remote would not open car ETC ETC…..

    So I have batteries I go change the battery, didn’t work maybe old so I order new batteries. So I ordered batteries from amazon they came in tuesday. Changed the battery and out to the car remote still does not work. Wednesday out to try one more time I call my dealer ship and talk to them. Maybe it is the car battery and not the remote…………… NO NO I just got a new battery this winter. Call AAA to come tow me to dealership. AAA arives and checks and says it might be the battery and I say oh no AAA just installed battery this winter.

    He hooks hi truck battery up to my car battery ……………… AND IT IS THE BATTERY………… He told me to run it awhile………….. So I drove around for over a hour and hopefully it start tomorrow 🙂

    • Tamra Phelps

      Please don’t hate me for saying: it’s a relief to know I’m not the only one that kind of stuff happens to!! Lol.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I don’t want to tempt fate but here’s what happened to me today. I was going to cancel today’s viewing as it’s Dad’s 7th anniversary and the 13th house. Anyway, along I went &^ the agent apologised for the smell of cat in the house. Not a problem for me I said. He explained the owner is a real cat lady, a bit eccentric, a hoarder & a keen gardener. Sounds like me, I said. One of her jackets hung on the back of the chair – I have that jacket. I have the same fridge magnets, same taste in books, the same lamp … by this stage it was getting a bit Twilight Zone-ish. The lady was selling up to move in with her sister called Helen. My sister’s name is Helen.
    Cross everything folks!

    • Tamra Phelps

      KISMET!!! SERENDIPITY!! The Universe is not whispering in your ear…it’s screaming! Maybe your Dad led you there… The night before I finally discovered a way to get out of the bad first nursing home 3 1/2 hours from home, I had a dream where I was sitting in a room with my Mom and she just reached out and put her hand on my knee and said ‘Don’t worry. It’s going to be okay.’ That was all. The next day, out of nowhere, my aunt (Mom’s sister) called and off-hand mentioned an idea of how I could get out of that place. It worked. That evening, I had it worked out. The day before it had been hopeless.

  • Michele Soyer

    I was able to get my self in gear yesterday and de-vine all the bushes on one side of the property fence.. now today I have the fence along the garden…tomorrow will be another section – doing one piece a day until all the vines are gone! I do not plan on doing this for the rest of my life.. LOL

  • Tamra Phelps

    Hmm, went to the doctor today–my usual appointment every few months. We did sort of agree on a likely diagnosis for some of my remaining issues: it seems clear that the sepsis must have attacked my nervous system because every remaining problem involves numbness and tingling, etc. So, the methods to rebound from those things are long and sometimes simply non-existent (says medical science–I don’t necessarily accept that, lol.) But I still have to see the orthopedist about my left ankle, and hopefully make it tolerable to stand on–so I can deal with the right knee, and make it capable of walking. Then physical therapy for that. Then…well, one step at a time. —OH, by the way, anyone wondering about the comment that you couldn’t read, I used Google translator: It’s Korean and says ‘Hello~~My name is Strawberry Princess.” That’s all. Lol

  • Sarah L

    Good swim with friends. My arm is sore today from yesterday’s booster and I have a bit of a headache, but that’s all.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I’ve just realised the date. Tomorrow is Dad’s 7th Anniversay. Bloody Hell. Still, I’m glad he died without having to go through Mum’s cancer.

  • gloria patterson

    Well we finally got our Easter SNOW …….. poured down hard for about a hour windshields covered……………. STOPPED and ALL MELTED

    So hopefully that mean spring is here Sat Sun and Mon are all to be in the 80’s

  • Shelly Peterson

    My daughters work scheduled changed so now I am up even earlier. Plus, this week I have to drop and pick up my other grandson to school. This old lady is tired.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Yesterday’s Parade was so typical of rural Ireland: Lots of vintage tractors & farm machinery, a couple of pipe bands, local sports clubs etc. but with one exception: a large group of Ukranian refugees who were given the biggest cheer of all. Then the heavens opened and everyone ran for cover!
    Today is a holiday so drove around checking out some new places for sale & sent out lots of emails.

  • heather

    Just got in the door from doing some shopping. I am worn out from dodging idiots in parking lots seems like they are out in force here today!

  • Michele Soyer

    Pleasant Easter Monday to all – here it is a big beach holiday! As for me it is also the start of racing season so i am off to the track! Have my betting money put aside….

  • Tamra Phelps

    Not a lot going on this Easter. My ankle still hurts like crazy. I dread having to put weight on it. Oh, well, it will pass…

  • Sarah L

    Happy Easter, Happy Spring! Had a lovely dinner at my friend’s house. Ham, asparagus, sweet potatoes and fresh pineapple. (still too much wind and fires here in Colorado)

  • heather

    Happy Easter to you hope you have a lovely day. I was outside a little while ago and saw a rabbit I was just thrilled to see a real bunny on Easter thank you Lord.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Had a nice phone chat with my sister this morning. The Easter Parade is getting up and running so time for a shower & get to a shop before it gets too crowded. It’s a day for wellies, wax jacket and hat.

  • Sarah L

    Quiet day at home. Wind is a bit quieter today which is good for the 3 wildfires here in Colorado. More wind tomorrow.

  • Tamra Phelps

    Well, last night my left ankle decided to start hurting. (arthritis)– and it seems to have settled in for a stay because it’s still hurting today. Ugh. I hate arthritis. I have an appointment to see a specialist in early May, though, so hopefully he can do something.

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good so far. I woke up to some unexpected snow and it was so pretty but it is now almost all melted away.

  • Tamra Phelps

    One of the brakes on my wheelchair broke this morning–on the left wheel. So, my brother had to come by after work and figure that out–which involved him going back home and finding a screw. The screw on that brake had actually broken right in two. Solid metal or steel or whatever, but it had snapped clean in two.

  • gloria patterson

    My great niece (5) spend yesterday with me…………………. wore me out. Got up early dress etc etc I said down in the recliner to do something , leaned back and I was OUT! I slept for 5 hour I recharged 🙂

  • heather

    Having a pretty nice day so far had a lot of running around to do today and just got home. It was nice to see all the blooming trees and pretty flowers love this time of year the very best.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Went to the laundrette yesterday, sat on the bed & woke up 12 hours later! It’s Good Friday and most offices are closed in Ireland today & Monday so it’s a long weekend with no viewings lined up. There’s an Easter Parade here on Sunday for the first time since the Pandemic started so that’ll be something to look forward to!

  • Sarah L

    Excellent Horticultural Therapy program at the Botanic gardens today. Small group, but they all enjoyed the tour. We did the Conservatory instead of an outside walk since it was cold and very windy (again, still, yet..)
    The Tower of Jewels plants were in bloom and look neat.

  • gloria patterson

    good day still slowly cleaning out drawers etc…….. found several things I didn’t know or remember I had

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Drove 2 hours to the latest viewing – another dud 🙁 Getting fed up but will stick with it for another 6 weeks then re-evaluate my options.

  • Tamra Phelps

    I feel like I need big changes in my life. I just get that feeling every once in a while. I’m thinking of seeing a therapist/psychologist/whatever to help me sort through the past 4 or 5 years and put it behind me and decide what I need to do to move forward in the way I want. I don’t know if I need a big change or several little ones, lol., I know I don’t feel like myself right now. I know I’m not the same person I was before I got sick, but that’s probably normal– so do I want to get back to the person I was before or become some changed me? I know the me right now is not okay with me, lol.

    • Kate Sarsfield

      You’ve been through so much since your Mum died. It probably would help to talk it through with a professional. Heck, it all takes so long to sort things out in your head, doesn’t it? And at the same time there’s this inner voice that’s saying your time is finite so make the most of it … I don’t know. You have to do whatever feels right for you and if you’re not happy then grab the chance to do something about it. There you go, that’s my bit of advice for what it’s worth.

      • Tamra Phelps

        I feel like I have to do it now or it won’t ever get done, lol. I can’t wait for doctors or anyone else to find solutions. I have to start living how I want to live now. I can’t just keep saying ‘when my knee is fixed’ or ‘when my health is back at 100%’–it’s silly to put off life until everything is fine in every part of life. I’m going to start a list of things I want to change or do–and start with the things I can do right now. And find a way to do the things that will be more difficult.

    • Michele Soyer

      Believe me I know exactly what you are talking about….a therapist is fine, good friends and family are also an option to talk things through…and if you are not fearful of change it sometimes is the best thing….maybe nothing huge but small steps….

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good just got in the door from doing some grocery shopping. I had to race around before we get more snow. I am loving this weather we sure needed some rain and snow in our area we are in a major drought here so this is such a blessing.

  • Michele Soyer

    Today is the day I get all my recipes together for Easter baking – might have to make. a quick trip out if I am missing any ingredients but I don’t think so….Hungarian goodies that my dad loved….

  • l p

    the day has been going well despite the weather – wild winds, more precipitation than usual. so a lot of indoor work was accomplished. thanks

  • Tamra Phelps

    Still having Facebook issues. The news feed just will not update. And I can’t get an answer from Facebook. They have lousy customer service, lol.

  • gloria patterson

    Nice day I try ever couple days to go through my closet and pull out a few things that I have not worn in a while. Then I picked a drawer and cleaned it out

  • heather

    My day is going nice and mellow so far. We are getting snow off and on since yesterday so the roads are pretty scary right now.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Today’s house was more like a swimming pool inside. Totally flooded from the recent rain. Ah well, another one tomorrow.

  • Michele Soyer

    Made some changes awhile ago.. no more heavy land work…simplified my garden..went back to uni for
    French and Art History. now looking at vacations in Portugal, France, Greece and Italy….researching at some later date a move…did it 22 years ago ( 22 years younger and not a widow) but this was my husbands dream now for my dreams….

  • l p

    a day to be moving quickly – the wind was wicked and the temperatures more than 15 degrees lower. guess it’s good for the cardiovascular system. thanks

  • Sarah L

    Got my annual eye exam. My eyes are still recovering from the dilation drops. Good to know that there are no changes from last year.

  • gloria patterson

    Got a call from a old friend in town for Easter so we met and had a long lunch and caught up MANY years of whats been going on

  • heather

    My day is off to a great start got some good news this morning I was so due! The weather is crazy today it’s snowing on and off and it is super cold.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I sent off some enquiries today. One viewing tomorrow (had a peep at the outside yesterday) and waiting for others to get back to me. That’s the problem with small independent auctioneers: they also sell livestock & farmland, probably run a pub or a funeral service as well!

  • Michele Soyer

    Easter time always brings back memories of my son. He would have been 48 years old today – gone 10 years now.. still seems like yesterday that I got the call from his wife…stunned there by the phone….Celebrating his life today and in some ways taking a page from his book…..

  • Tamra Phelps

    Not a lot going on today. The lawn mowing guys came today and mowed the apartment complex lawn today–they do a horrible job, lol. I think the grass was left at about 100 different heights

  • heather

    I am so relaxing today yesterday’s drama wore me out and I need to have a nice quiet rest of the weekend. Hope you are having a nice Sunday.

    Well, it’s rainy and gloomy, I have a ton of laundry to be done but I have a great big mug of steamy tea and I slept well last night so I’m giving the day a thumbs up!

    Got up early to attend my State Democratic Convention (by Zoom). Today my sore shoulder is only mumbling, not yelling.

  • Mishelle G

    I’m feeling good and tired. Brought son home from uni today but had to clean the room (well, teach him how to and show home why it needed to be re-swept) before we left. Lots of work. I think I should have shown him before BUT knowing there’s no deposit back if it isn’t clean helped it along.

    I did our grocery shopping, today. We are going on a diet because of food prices. Not really, but I bought dry beans and rice.

  • gloria patterson

    Cold but not really cold day could not stay warm. Finally decided I just needed to take a long nap with a heavy blanket. Our weather is up and down in temp. We are say we are just waiting on our Easter Snow for spring to finally arrive.

  • Kim Avery

    Very eventful day! My husband who is adopted talked to his younger sister today! A very unique situation where she is actually full blood along with another brother! Its a very long story but some pieces,of the puzzle are coming together.

  • Kcf

    It’s a really windy day today – lots of dirt/sand floating around. So, outside was out of the question. Good day for inside work.

  • heather

    Well, to be honest today has been a sh*t show! Had to make an unexpected trip to town to pay a bill because the company said they never received the check. Then when I get all the way down there to pay it in person they tell me “Oh we checked the mail just now and your check was in there”. Pissed me off!!!!! Especially at $5.00 per gallon!!!!

  • Tamra Phelps

    Wow, it’s freezing out there today. I thought Spring had finally sprung, but I guess not. It’s cold and the sky is gray. Oh well, there are still dandelions and onion grass and those little purple ‘weeds’ decorating the yard, lol.

  • Tamra Phelps

    For over a week Facebook has been showing the same dozen or so posts…along with a message saying ‘You’re All Caught Up For Now.’ I keep reporting it and getting no answer. And today I broke a nail. Geeze, lol.

  • gloria patterson

    Not a bad day temp was in the high 40’s did little shopping etc. Got back to my building unloaded ever thing in to a cart. The minute I got in the building the rain and thunder and lighting started.

  • heather

    My day is speeding by just got in the door and sitting down for a break. I so need a better pair of walking shoes with some major support.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    The little house I was going to view today has been sold privately by the executor. Damn, damn, damn. I feel a slump coming on but I have to keep going and keep positive. Didn’t get much sleep last night so I’ll have an early night and start the hunt again tomorrow.

    • Tamra Phelps

      It probably had some huge, unseen problem in the walls, lol. The Universe is on your side!! It’s just slowly guiding you into place…until you slide right in exactly where you belong.

      • Kate Sarsfield

        Found out a farmer with adjoining land bought it to get access to the road. He’ll either demolish it or use it as storage 🙁

  • Molli Taylor

    Not gonna lie. Today is a struggle. IT’s like 73 and sunny and I have work to do and I cannot make myself care.

  • Michele Soyer

    Just a few sees to start and some transplants and that is my morning…taking the afternoon off putting my tootsies up Jesus Christ SuperStar on and remembering back in 71 when husband and I saw the show on its first week out…the tickets were ridiculous but it was worth it…

  • Tamra Phelps

    Well, turns out the doctor who was supposed to see me for my ankle has been out with some personal time. Okay. Anyway, she thinks I should see a doctor at University of KY. Wish she had told me that 2 months ago.

  • gloria patterson

    Have a had nice day it got warm so I drove down to a local park area by the river. Just sit relaxed and it was so refreshing.

  • Kim Avery

    I did grocery shopping today and I’m in shock how high the prices have gotten not to mention lack of product. Think we will become vegetarians.

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good so far. Sure had a hard time getting up this morning hit snooze like four times and that is not like me but I am up and about now getting things done around the house. It is going to be 85 degrees here today and that is so nice a little warm but still nice.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Phone calls and emails this morning. Sorted out a new pharmacist for my usual meds. I’ll go for a walk later & a bit of grocery shopping and that’s my day.

  • Michele Soyer

    Glad that all the Easter shopping is done – todays task finishing the drapes for the drawing room and arranging a flower bed for Easter – have some pretty day lilies and antoriums..

  • Tamra Phelps

    Well, it’s been 2 months since the ankle specialist got my referral and she still hasn’t called to schedule an appointment or at least tell me she can’t see me. Tomorrow I need to call her office. This is ridiculous. The level of unprofessional behavior or incompetence with the medical profession these days is mind boggling.

    • Kate Sarsfield

      She might have got Covid? I got really frustrated with an agent who wasn’t returning my calls/emails. He’d been really ill. I felt awful.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I went for a longer than usual walk today & got absolutely soaked in a sudden downpour. Back to my room, hot shower, got into bed to warm up & slept 3 hours. Going to contact local council to find out how to get a water supply to a house & the cost vs the cost of sinking a well (if the ground is suitable). I need to make contact with builders & electricians, plumbers etc. in this area and the best place is the local builder’s yard/hardware store which is within walking distance. My list is getting longer!

    • Tamra Phelps

      Does this mean you made an offer on the house you saw that needs a lot of work? It’s sounds like a winner–well, like it could shape up to be a winner.

      • Kate Sarsfield

        I haven’t as yet – hoping to hear back from the local County Council offices about the water. The way prices are going the only ones I’ll be able to afford will be doer-uppers.

  • heather

    Just had my hair colored and now I am feeling a lot better it had been way too long since I had it done. Now I am just getting stuff done around the house it is going to be 75 degrees here today and that is perfect.

  • l p

    this day is going well – it’s a lovely day out there. just right for a walk around the neighborhood to see what’s new. thanks

  • Kim Avery

    Its a glorious spring day today! I’m putting tomorrow’s shopping list together and going to attempt meatloaf tonight. I really wish I could make it like my grammas but never comes out the same.

  • Tamra Phelps

    For some reason, I couldn’t get PB&Whine to load last night…but it’s fine today. A kid’s balloon got hung up on some electrical wires outside my apartment Sunday, and about 2 this morning they exploded with a BANG! Everybody’s electricity went out, lol. Had to call 911 because I couldn’t see to find the electric company’s number…anyway, about an hour later they had it up and running. Poor guys, had to come out at 2 a.m. in the rain because a kid lost his balloons, lol.

  • Sarah L

    Very windy out there. Went downtown for my infusion, then stopped at the grocery store and went inside.
    I do save money ordering online for pickup since I am bad about going ‘ooh, that looks good’ and getting things not on my list.

  • gloria patterson

    not a bad day took a couple of hours and worked on cleaning up and getting rid of some old craft stuff.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Went to have a look at a house from the outside. The back door was unlocked so had a quick peep round inside. Looks like it hasn’t been lived in for years but it’s dry and solid. There’s no running water, heating, kitchen or bathroom BUT it’s do-able and it’s relatively cheap considering all that needs to be done. Even standing inside on a wet & dreary day, it didn’t feel cold. Anyway, seeing it with an agent on Friday.

      • Kate Sarsfield

        Honestly Tamra, I’d forgotten houses like this still exist! Some little old farmer living on his own, Holy pictures on every wall and an ancient Aga that heated the whole house. And that’s about it! But it really didn’t feel cold even with a smashed window.

  • heather

    Just in the door from doing some major grocery shopping and I am sitting down to take a serious break right now. Boy those prices on the grocery store are down right scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sarah L

    Did not get my booster shot today as planned. Got a call at 7:30am saying the nurse would not be coming in today. Rescheduled for next Wednesday.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Saw another house today. Honestly it was little more than a cowshed and they wanted nearly 80k for it. The world’s gone mad.

  • heather

    My day going just so so today. I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night lots of stuff on my mind so all I did was toss and turn all night I hate nights like that.

  • Kim Avery

    My day has started slow. I wish real spring weather would get here and stay. My poor achy joints can’t take wet & cold much longer!

  • Tamra Phelps

    Saw one of my cousins this weekend–first time since before the pandemic. During that time, she had COVID twice. So, it was really good to see her at all.

  • Sarah L

    Good swim with my friend. Then a trip to Costco. (note to self: do NOT go to Costco on Sunday).
    Having roast chicken for dinner.

  • gloria patterson

    Not feeling good but not feeling bad. So wrapped up in a blanket nap a little read a little ………….. feeling better now. Maybe the sunday blues!

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I spent the day yesterday helping the landlady clean the B&B! She’s got 12 rooms & was expecting a lot of her husband’s family (including a sister that none of them knew about till recently from New York) to stay. I had nothing on so offered to help and actually enjoyed it! Sat on the bed about 10pm & slept right through.

  • heather

    My day has been full of work and cleaning and I am about worn out. Think I am going to take it easy for the rest of the day.

  • Michele Soyer

    It is Sunday and for that I am grateful! Still feel very tired from the booster.. oh well life goes on…trying to get all my lists for the week done today.. shopping on Wed and the garden/yard to-do list before changing the curtains and drapes for Easter….

  • l p

    this day has gone well. got extra things done so there was time for a virtual visit, having tea with a friend. thanks

  • Kim Avery

    Goodness! What a month you had! Worse thing that happened to me last month was two broken brake lines! Today was a good day. Didn’t do much but binge on old reruns of Hells Kitchen.

  • heather

    My day is off to a good start so far. I had a nice breakfast and am getting out of the house for a while today to so some running around.

  • Tamra Phelps

    Well, I’m expecting my cousin some time today–haven’t seen her in person since before the pandemic (we both had other health issues, so both had to be careful about staying away from others, etc., long after others were going places.)

  • Bruno D

    I usually don’t comment but as a car lover (and the other machines…), I have to say that I like your (or The Husbands) taste.
    Subaru XV, Toyota Tacoma and John Deere 3039r (if I got them right…) would be on my choice list, too. 🙂

  • Tamra Phelps

    Oh, my. I just read your word of the day, Connie. For a split second, I forgot it was April Fools day–I thought, Aw, poor Connie. She’s finally lost that last marble.😂🤣

  • Nancy

    My day is going fine so far. Anyone fall for an April Fool joke? I anticipated an April Fool’s program joke and it was fun to be in the know ahead of time.

  • gloria patterson

    Its a good day got a little bit done not really in the mood to clean. I am cleaning out closet/drawers etc one to two items a day. When I get a stack I bag them up, out to the car and off to goodwill or the ranch.

    I read your review of last month it funny the things you remember or the pictures reminded. I was laughing at your adventures with the car and the hill. Its fun those adventures are always fun to remember after. i remember years ago going up the hill and hitting a ice patch and spinning around. Took me 3 times to get up that road and I never drive it with out thinking about that day.

  • heather

    My day is going just okay still pissed off about my hair getting chopped off yesterday way too short. I keep telling myself today that it will grow and remembered to take my vitamins.

  • Mishelle G

    No sleep last night but hit the right amount of caffeine and feeling good!! Hope the rest of the day falls into place!

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Happy April Fools’ Day everyone! Remembering all the pranks Mum played on us over the years. Really silly little things but she got us everytime!
