    hey everyone !

    glad your hives are gone, clouds! winter weather makes your skin drier, maybe making hives more common. staying hydrated is important!

    dawn, i'm glad you had such great weather in vegas! it is so frikking cold here! i take out the dogs first thing in the morning and i put my coat on over my robe and a knit cap and gloves and i stand out there for 5 minutes until they get done sniffing and doing other stuff. i HATE these mornings lately. yesterday, it was so windy that even though it was relatively warm (16 degrees...lol), it felt like it was below zero. i went to a casino for the first time with my boyfriend dan early in february. there are 3 casinos within 5 miles here downtown. i set a limit of $5. i lost it all. i don't understand how people can sit there and press a button or pull a lever and watch spinning numbers or whatever for hours! i love m&m's! i refuse to eat them...lol. i hope everything goes well with the birth of your new grandbaby. remember, we all want to know the stats of the birth...weight, height, etc.

    julia! i'm so glad to see you! you know, i understand how independent you are and how you would hate to depend on a scooter ((((hugs)))....but, i think being able to do more stuff will be good. the keppra and your copd and lack of strength due to being sick for so long have taken a toll on your body's energy supply. using a scooter would help you conserve the energy you do have and you'll prolly be able to do more! you might get stronger by using the scooter and be able to use it less and when you don't want to use it when you go somewhere. just see it as a pair of crutches to use until a broken leg heals. you'll be able to go more places when it gets warmer, too! i am sure we will meet one day, big sis! and yes, you can boss me around about watching myself when i paint. i have a 3 step ladder and i only go up to the middle step because i'm afraid of heights and also because i'm tall enough that i can easily reach the ceiling from the middle step.

    so, i have painted the first coat on. i see some peeling around the window, so i have to do some scraping before i finish that part. i am taking a break because i have a little infection that should be gone by next monday. the antibiotics i am taking for it are causing nausea even though i take the antibiotics with food like i am supposed to. i also scheduled my dr.'s appointments for the first week of march, so i'll see my doctor and dentist then. i'll be able to get back to painting then...unfortunately, i wanted to be done by now!!!! march is next week. with it being so cold however, i don't think i mind staying in and painting.

    joy, i saw your post and i'm glad you are doing well! fig, i hope you are doing well, also. to those we haven't heard from in awhile, we miss you! please come back!

    love to you all !

    thank you for sharing and caring,
    jeannie

    Hi. We're still in the deep freeze here. It was zero this morning, by 2pm we reached 20*!!!! It's supposed to snow tomorrow night...wow.

    Not much going on here. I'm not doing a whole lot...I'm pretty tired, my sleep isn't good. I wake up every morning at 2 or 3am, and wake frequently during he night. But, I'm coping. Got to, right?

    My dear birds are my saving grace. Skye (the Quaker) is so funny and sweet. He's talking so much, and he laughs and coughs. The other day he bit my nose, then croaked "Don't bite!" and laughed. Little imp.

    Hi all. Been awhile. Still here hanging in there. I've missed a lot I see. Just wanted to stop in and offer my hugs and prayers for you all.

    Love, Sly

    SLY!! Long tome no hear! It is so good to hear from you. I hope all is well and things are looking up for you and family.. I hope you will post more and give us all the news. Wee sure have missed you. I have been out a long time, but things are looking up for me and I am thankful for that!

    Clouds, Fig has some really neat birds. Maybe she will write more about them. I'm wondering if Dawn's grandbaby is here yet. I'm wondering if anybody has snow today. It's been warm here and I'm glad. I took a walk yesterday and it felt so good to be out where it was warm. About 70 degree's. It's warm today, but it's raining.

    I saw my Jonquil and crocus' are blooming. I really know it is almost spring!! I saw some Iris peaking out of the periwinkle . Ken is going to have to get rid of that periwinkle. It grows all over the place and it is hard to kill it. It would be a good ground covering, like on a small bank, but it just goes wild. It's kind of like Ivy. I've had some near a huge pecan tree. It's been there ever since we moved here 37 yrs. ago. Two years ago it took a growing spurt, climbed all aver the pecan tree. I mean that tree is hugh. Now it is full of Ivy. Really weird. I have a holly bush that grew over top of the house. I have some very weird plants.

    Got to go get some rest. Love to all, Julia

    hey everyone !

    feeling better this week!

    glad you got out for a walk, julia! 70's, huh? i think we'll be there in about late may or early june...lol. i went cross-country skiing with my bf last sunday and there was still about a foot and a half of snow on the ground. cross-country skiing is basically skiing on flat ground covered with snow. you push out with your legs, like when you're skating and then you step, glide and push with your poles. i haven't got the movement down perfectly yet, but i'm getting better! i also learned how to play euchre, which isn't as hard as i thought it would be. i am really not good at competitive card games, i like to play solitaire and i used to play a lot of 500 pick-up rummy with my ex.

    i've seen a couple of doctors this week and had a test, so i haven't caught up on my painting, but i did do the scraping. i love doing stuff with d, but i have to tell him i need time to myself, also. i didn't expect to meet anyone, although i was hoping i would, and i find it hard to be together so much, ya'll know what i mean?? i told d that once gardening season started, i would be busy in the evenings, because i am NOT a morning person and it is too hot in the afternoon in the middle of summer to do yard work, so i work in the evenings. spring and fall i will go out in the afternoon when it's warm because it still gets dark early and it's warmer in the middle of the day.

    so, i have a pic for ya'll. it was the day we went skiing and to the aquarium on sunday. it's on belle isle, which is now a state park. it's in the middle of the detroit river and it's basically grass, picnic spots, picnic shelters and river views and the aquarium, the conservatory and the great lakes museum. they have hydroplane races on the river, which are noisy and i can hear them down here at my house. belle isle is a great place to view those and the race promoters sell tickets for prime viewing areas. in the summer they have a car track for nascar or some kind of car race. i don't know which one because i'm not interested in that and if you've seen one car race, you've pretty much seen them all.... i hope i can put up the little video of the stingray racing around the tank in the aquarium, but if i can't, you'll only see the pic of me.

    the snow bank i climbed up was plowed snow on belle isle and it was a good 4 to 4 and a half feet high. it was a nice day, but foggy. i'm sitting on the snow and the detroit skyline is behind me as is the frozen detroit river at that spot. there is the bridge that you get onto the island there, right at the bottom of the skyline. if i get the video of the stingray up, it will be cool. okay, i see i can't do the video. i'll have to find out how. click on that whole blue line to see the pic

    love you all!
