I enjoyed figure skating last evening - especially the Italian pair!

It is still cold ehre, but I need some fresh air, so I opened the door to th e porch for a bit.
Hoping to get K and bathroom done, do a personal spa and lotion, then watch more olympics this evening while I knit.

Here is how cold it is: I had a bottle of wine on the porch - (forgot it was there) and when I opened the porch, I found it - with ice crystals filling the bottle.

Happy Sunday! It has been a great day of church, fellowship and cross stitch :lol:

Gma. I hope you enjoy your wine. I like ice wine, so I always put ice cubes in mine.

AF, have fun watching the Olympics. I am in awe of the athletes who have such dedication to their sport.

Mom. I hope you get some down time with all the events you have going on

Super, I hope you get some nesting done, and some cleaning

~~waving to all the others in the Coffee House~~~

Hi, Everyone! Our 1st storm was 12" on Friday night. Our 2nd one last night was another 4-6." The plows didn't even come by the 1st time this morning until past 9:40, so I didn't make it to church. The new church is in the 'wilds' of Wisconsin, 30 minutes from here, ALL country roads.
My nice neighbor next door brought over his snowblower, and did most of our driveway. STILL, with the walk/ way to the garbage bins and driveway. I still can feel it in my back, as I've done a LOT of shoveling.
Son33 is back with dog(she and I like each other) and 2 cats. Son33 I THINK finally realizes that ex-g-f REALLY DID break up with him. :? Dog is cute, and a jindo/lab mix. THE PROBLEM is she goes POOP in my bedroom. Door is now shut to the bedrooms, so she pooped in the basement, even tho hubby and I took the dog out 4-6 times today. :roll:I'm not really a dog fan; cats are MUCH easier, even when you are trying to settle in new ones. :lol:

I have started teaching some STEM "engineering" classes that have a set curriculum, and nice kits for the students to use. I interviewed to teach some GED/ACT/SAT students at another place; I had to take the ACT test on Friday. I can study more and retake it; but I'm hoping I did okay.

Well, back for some decluttering (futon in here has claimed a bounty sometime...)

Take care!

mcl, the snow is dumping on you and so is your family! Dog is new to your place so maybe doesn't konw the "rules". My mother's little dog needs quite a walk in order to poop outside. My son and dil who teach obedience say, Confine to kennel while dog is inside. Go out with dog on leash, or watch dog if yard is fenced and dog is free/ off leash. If dog poops (and potties), dog can be free in house for a time. If dog does not poop, then back into crate. It will only take a few days for dog to learn that outside is where to go. Best wishes!

My k counters are SOOO CLEAN! Can't remember when I last had them this nice!
Table, floor need to be addressed next, as well as inside refrigerator. And all teh magnet clutter outside refrig should be culled as well.
But it is 1am, and I just got home from helping mother since 10pm. I have to get up in the morning to get her a.m. pills done correctly and let her dog out, so bedtime here soon.

good class, and nice visit at mother's after. He even brought me a Valentine! :D
now Mom wants me to stay with her at her house tonight. She is absolutely SURE someone came into her house, walked noisily down the hall and into her bedroom, acted silly then turned around and left. But so far as I know all the doors were locked.
hmmmm????
anyhow, she is frightened to stay alone, so I will spend the night.
At home just long enough to gather a couple books that are my bedtime reading.

gma - your mom's thoughts made me wonder about any pain meds that she might be on. Pain meds definitely can play tricks on the elderly mind at times, and that was the first thought that I had. You are such a good daughter, doing whatever you can to put her mind at ease <3.

yes, butters, my thoguths exactly, but she absolutely is SURE it was real. It was real to her, the house was locked, no one was there. I am not concerned about her safetly in her home, but my being htere helps her feel more secure.

dr visit today - there is lesion on her back that needs to be biopsied.
and she has rib and elbow issues
and the pain
and the list goes on
