Waiting for the shop to call and tell me my truck is ready.

Ran some errands with a neighbor.

Picked up new cushions for the folding chairs. Long overdue! Hoping for inspiration to get the house project moving again.

Also picked up some new eye shadow to 'play' with and some new hand lotions on clearance.

Warm temps have melted almost all of the snow. I put away all of the ornaments but left the lights for now.

Today would have been my dads' birthday. Thoughts are scattered all over the place. Thanks for bearing with me. I miss him so!

Thoughts scattered today here too. Can't seem to focus on much of anything. Bad thing, I don't know what is distracting me. I think it is the weather. Gloomy here and now snowing kind of hard. Wish the sun would of come out today.

I hope you all have a good day.

Hugs, Karen...

I'm done. I'm just done.

Shop finally called. They got the caliper installed. When they went to replace the brake fluid...the main brake lines blew out.

Stick a fork in me. I'm done.

Pitmom, Maybe it is a good thing that they blew then and not when you were driving it. You could of needed new brake lines. So this could be a good thing instead of a bad thing. For your safety. I believe that happens sometimes.

Everything is going to be okay.

Jamie, Waves back at you. I hope you had a good day.

I think Myself is doing a lot of the waving, but that is on the other page, so I wave to Myself too!

Hugs, Karen...

Car stuff bites.

Karen--it is winter,there is a lot of uncertainty, a lot of cultural anxiety. People are worried. It is no wonder that we feel uncertain.

I am listening to confirmation hearings today, along with my other usual activities.

BF and I dig Aaron Sorkin shows (West Wing, NewsRoom, etc.) We finished watching NewsRoom again last night--a show cut down in its prime.

Hi all,

Just toddling along here, trying to "do something, even if it's wrong" as my father would say. He hates laziness and inaction. Actually, I'm trying to do the RIGHT things - takes too much energy to do things wrong then have to redo them.

Looks like it may get warm enough today to open some windows and air out the house some. I sure hope so, this new carpet smell I think is getting to me. It's not the nasty formaldehyde of the old days, but it's a definite scent that doesn't sit too well with me.

Probably should water the outdoors plants, too. And it's a "good deed day" - a day I pick up an elderly friend who can't drive & take her to/from Dr appts.

Anyway, just wanted to "wave" and tell y'all I'm still kicking...

Hi Everybody,

Uncertainty can be scary Myself, that is when I go back to one moment at a time.

Lynnwood, Do something right even if it is wrong, I have heard that somewhere before.

Joan, What's on second???

Hugs to all...

NO ones on first, but what is on second!

Pitmom I am thankful the brake line did not blow while anyone way driving.

weather here is causing awful pain levels, temp up and down barometric pressure killing me

However, temp is 61 today, so I took down all the outside decorations, few as they were, in some comfort.

Peace

Yo homies, happy Thursday!

*I don't know*

Mrs. F27 disassembles Christmas yesterday too. I arrived home uber-late but for the two seconds I was in the living room before I went to bed, I loved having all of our space back.

Christmas is fun, but it involves way too much stuff for me.

Have fun folks. smile

Wonderful warm, sunny weather today...January thaw. Took down the majority of the decorations, did a bit of garden clean up making sure to scan for praying mantis nests first, put up red and pink lights for next month...all I'll have to do is unplug the white lights and plug in the others and I'm all set!

The truck saga continues. They replaced 2 brake lines today but are having difficulty bleeding the lines and getting the brake pedal to work properly. Sigh. At least one more day before I get it back.

Neighbor is planning a stop at the dollar store tomorrow and I can tag along with her. Yay! I'm so glad she's on vacation this week! We're shopping buddies!

I sat outside on the patio this evening to sip my tea. Got to see the full moon rise. Still have open windows in the house tonight. Want to enjoy this warmth for as long as I possibly can! Was 70 degrees today and tonight at this point it's still in the 60's!

Of course the hellebore is blooming beautifully on the patio table but would you believe I have pansies in bloom too? The neighbors have snap dragons opening up also! Amazing! I love nature.

hey Turtle, A cold one sounds good right now, though it is too early here...

Pitmom, Pansies, snaps... Boy do I miss spring and summer. Under two foot of snow here.

Have a good day all...

H*A*P*P*Y F*R*I*D*A*Y !!!!!!!

If I don't get a chance to check in again, I hope all y'all that are going to the women's March this weekend have a great time. Remind the world you have a strong voice that must be heard.

And for god's sake, stay hydrated. ;-)

Gotta go to the coffee room, there's a bagel there that needs me.

Later, dear turtle,later. *grins*

Two feet of snow. Dang. Yesterday,we were near 70--though a winter storm is headed here. I am running to the store today, and exercising early. Have some tutoring hours set up later.

The march isn't until next weekend--the day after the Inauguration. Funny, we were just chatting about it.

Yes, two feet. But tomorrow starts a long warm up (I hope). Hopefully we will lose some.

Got a keyboard and mouse for hubby's computer. He always says "If you would teach me how to use it'. Well, it is time!!! I bet he will still ask me to look things up. The mouse and keyboard for his was wireless. but they stopped working after we had it fixed. So I got wired ones and they came today. I am anxious to hook them up. I always liked that computer and it is 8.1 instead of 10. Though I have finally gotten use to 10.

The sun is trying to peek out. The sky is white. Maybe yet...

Have a good day everybody!!!

Hugs, Karen...

Still waiting to hear about my truck. Sigh.

Meanwhile, went to the dollar store with neighbor. Picked up a few things for Valentines Day and some other things for the house.

Then, on to K-Mart. Found some spring bulbs that hadn't sold last fall and are sprouting. Figure I'll try 'forcing' them into bloom inside. Yellow tulips, red and white tulips, pink hyacinths and grape hyacinths. Bought 2 ceramic pots on clearance. For the others, I'll use pottery I already own.

Sunny, windy, so not as warm as yesterday but not bad.

Our plan--Leave early, drive half an hour to metro and get a parking space before it fills up. Metro down to either Union Station (no transfers) or Capitol South (One transfer). Union Station has a food court, and several businesses near the Library of Congress are opening up as a home base for the March.

Now--time to think about signs and slogans.

Be well everyone!!

Stay safe on the march, stay together, hold hands if you have to. Stay unified.

You have my admiration. The thought of that crowd, has me frozen.

However, going to a prayer service Mon 1/16/17 to jump start the week.

Peace

Hi me mate, turtle...been COLD here. Some times we have sunshine and many days we don't have too much of that.

The gel shots in my knee have worked. The PA was very nice and said it was an up for him to have me as a patient.

Think I might have a bit of gout. Hope that the docs don't give me a hard time about this one. I kept on telling them there was something wrong but they did not listen to me about my allergic asthma. When I had a "grey out" on the street in mid-town Manhattan, they began to listen.

What can I say ... about the GREAT NORTHEAST.

Well I guess I will find out about it at some point. Spent most of today on paper work which is NOT my favorite but am plodding along. Of course got ANOTHER bill from these doctors which is incorrect. I do notice how they are so very good at billing me.

It is funny how the doctor's can get those bills out there but if they owe you money, it takes forever. Same with the irs and other places. Ha!!!

Sorry about the gout Joan. I hope it gets better.

Trina, I hope you enjoy prayer service. Can be comforting.

Hugs to all, still early here...

Flagged out here...my white flag of surrender. Papers all over the place. VERY DARK here at 5 pm or earlier. Did wash and have to remake the bed and put stuff away.

Always tired and don't feel like eating because that is just ANOTHER CHORE.

Don't know if you become weaker or stronger as you aged...whatever.

Meant to congratulate those going on the women's march. I was very involved with the local NOW (National Organization for Women) but just send a little green stuff now. TOO BEAT for activism.

Dark and dreary here today too Joan. Suppose to have sun in a few days. Freezing rain tonight. I must go to town and get supplies. Ha... Everybody will be shopping if we are going to get a storm.

I am tired a lot too Joan. Do you take any vitamin D3? It seems to help in the winter months.

I hope everybody has a good day today.

Keep posting. I love reading...

Hugs, Karen...
