I hate to admit it but for the first time in three years I have the nasty cold that is going around here. DIL had it, Son had it, T had it, D had it, The Hubs had it and I thought I was going to escape it with my cleaning diligence around the house. I guess I must have missed a door knob or maybe even the banister or something that had those mean little germs on them. So as I sneeze and cough with abandon I will try to write a post. :o)
A few years ago when I was in the local drugstore I found these cute little things that you can change out whenever you want. I use it in the powder room in the foyer and it gives just enough light to find your way in there in the dark.
You put these cute little things on the hanger and can change them to go with the appropriate season or put something that’s just cute.
Another winter as you know we have a long winter…..
Just for fun.
I wish I could find some more but the drugstore is no longer there. I’m wondering if I could find some online but I don’t really know what they are called. Any ideas?
We got hit with another huge snow storm yesterday. I think we got about a foot of snow and more on my back deck where the wind whips it around. I went out to feed the turkeys and the snow was WAY over my boots. I should be out there shoveling but just don’t have the energy. It’s much easier sitting here in front of my computer nice and warm. :o)
My kids are in the New Hampshire mountains this weekend. I wonder if they will be able to get out with all the snow they got there. They aren’t skiing this time they have gone to an indoor water park. They sent a few pictures and it looks like a lot of fun other then the fact that you have to put on a bathing suit. Ahem……the dreaded bathing suit……
I was making yeast rolls the other day and noticed their reflection in the mixer bowl. Yeast rolls/bathing suits just don’t mix well……
I went to the airport the other day and made reservations for the Snowbirds plus Buffy the cat to come home for the summer. I went up to the Grasshopper Shop to get a couple of cards and accidently ran into one of the soldiers that was in there browsing. I apologized and he was very gracious about it and we chatted a few minutes. I asked him if he was coming or going and he said his troop was going to Afghanistan. The troops usually go through Bangor airport as it was once Dow Air Force Base and has an extremely long runway which can accommodate the big army transport planes.
I asked him where he was from and he smiled and said Mississippi. He said I suppose you could tell from my accent that I wasn’t from here! :o) He thought the snow was rather daunting, he should see it now! I asked him his first name and it is Reginald and I told him I would pray for him while he was there and if you all think of it could you do the same? We need to uphold these brave men and women that go into harms way to help protect our freedoms.
There were two little dogs there that greet the troops. They had on their fatigues with patches that must have been given to them by different soldiers. They go around and greet each one, wagging their tails and are picked up and loved for a minute or so by some of the soldiers. I wish I had had my camera with me. What a nice thing for this owner to do to take of his time and go with his dogs to see the troops and give them some fun and some words of encouragement.
