Got the tree up yesterday and the decorating finished. Don't do much but it looks nice. I have most of my shopping finished too just need to get one more thing for DH. Now I need to wrap and mail some things to our out of town family. Got the bills paid and mailed this morning and then went to Dollar General to get some things to make the choc. dipped pretzels and some fudge. Got those made up and tomorrow I'll do the cookie baking and freeze those. DH wants to take a big plate of goodies to his crew at work. After that I MUST get my Christmas letter written and copied and the cards addressed and sent out

Use Less, another vote here for stress and not enough rest, maybe a touch of ADD, too. Lists are a great help, as long as you remember to take the lists with you wherever you go! I do have diagnosed ADD, and am not currently taking any medication for it, so I do have more trouble staying on task and finishing ANYTHING. When I was working, and on ADD meds, I could tell the difference between the days I took my med and the occasional day I forgot - what's worse is that my co-workers could tell, too, lol! Lack of sleep and/or stress really made it worse. As I worked 12 hour night shifts in a high stress job (RN on a busy medical unit at the local hospital), you can imagine how well I functioned without my nightly pill. So, long story short, I think we all worry that our memories might be going at some point, but there is quite often a logical, and fixable, reason for the lapses.
GMB, I've always searched for the word I want when speaking - I also have a large vocabulary, and I've often wondered if that is precisely why. My brain is busy looking for the BEST word, when another, simpler word would be sufficient. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it, lol. I always tell my kids they'll never know when I'm senile because I've always talked this way. I'm so glad for your ds that the storm was downgraded. Those early satellite views were pretty ominous.

Still stormy here - the wind howled last night, and a couple more bands of storms are expected over the next few days. Of course, the worst of the rain is supposed to be about the same time that Abby has a dental appointment tomorrow. Luckily, I don't have a whole lot of errands to run while we're in town. Having been shopping Saturday, there are only a few more things I need or want to pick up - need to check WM for buckets, and will probably drive the F-150 so I can pick up any available pallets and check of cull lumber at Lowe's.

Abby made the most awesome pot of chicken and rice soup last night. We've been eating a lot of soup lately. It tastes so good on cold or stormy days, and it's pretty low-cal, which helps make up for some of the fudge and other goodies I have trouble resisting.

I'm on my last scarf and hat set for the grands. I remade Guppy's scarf and hat a couple times to make sure the amount of yarn I had would stretch to finish both. Thank goodness a 2 year old's hat and scarf are small or I'd never have been able to do it! Now to figure out which yarns will work for my grandson's set. I have a lot of black yarn, but most of it is one of those funky yarns that isn't really twisted together, making it hard to crochet. I"m not patient enough to use it! The rest of what I have is the scratchier yarns, and I think he is sensitive to texture like Abby is. I may end up actually buying yarn tomorrow if I can't find what I want in my stash.

Abby decorated the tree last night - not quite the way I'd have done it, but I hate to shoot her down when she was helping me. This afternoon, we should be able to finish the windows and string some outdoor lights on the fenceline (in between rain showers). I'm just starting to wrap gifts, too, so I hope to finish most of that today, too. I need to make more fudge and cookies before I can finish wrapping...I want to tuck some into the Minion lunch bags for the grands and my older dd's SO. Busy, busy, busy!

It was good sleeping weather last night. 48F, and the humidity was only 50%. I am good as long as we run the spaceheater during showering. High today to be 68-70F. These are my kind of temperatures!
Yesterday I finished packing DS last holiday box and mailed it. Found long shelf life eggnog at the bodega and included that. Got a little of my stocking shopping done for GFB. He had stockings growing up, and they were not very interesting to him. The nuts and clementines that had been residing on the table just moved into his stocking for Christmas morning. I had always wanted a stocking growing up and never had one so with my first marriage I made sure that we had stockings and I took care that carefully chosen small gifts went into them. My ex didn't care about stockings. He tried to convince me that small gifts should be hung from the tree. He also wanted to open gifts Christmas Eve. I was trying to be reasonable and try his desired customs, but the one year I did, I had one little gift versus close to a dozen for him in the tree, and I woke Christmas Morning very depressed and disappointed. The first year I was married to GFB I made him a nice stocking along with the children, and showed him all the kids stocking goodies as they accumulated. But he remained totally unobservant. Christmas Morning the children and GFB had stockings full of goodies and mine had a clementine. Period. GFB still refers back to it and his painful realization that "our" stockings were NOT the same as "his" stockings, growing up. Since then I have always had wonderful Christmas stockings that he has put together for me.
I am still trying to be thrifty cook, but yesterday I had to admit defeat as far as the remaining black beans and rice. I had started split pea soup first thing on getting up, but realized I just plain didn't want any pulse any more (here I had to define "pulse " for GFB. Peas and beans, he finally said Oh, legumes. Yes, but there are more legumes than just peas and beans) We had SOS for lunch and garlicy chicken alfredo for dinner. Used 2/3 of one of the chicken half breasts from the bodega. Still have half the alfredo left. Put the other third of the meat away to be rolled up in tortillas with the black beans and rice, and boiled the skin and bones to make stock to add to the feral cats food dishes.
GFB is working on a case, it's sort of like producing a thesis. We are still looking for the thumb drive he had all his forms on that disappeared last weekend. We couldn't find it at the lake, even though he was sure he'de packed it. We searched the car multiple times. Got back to the city, haven't been able to find it. We'll just have to search more thoroughly at the lake. Meanwhile he's been trying to cobble together a form and get most of the paper written.
Can't wait to get back to the lake and see how the garden is doing! Might be time to harvest the wapato!

It has been snowing moderately for a few hours. A heavy snow: it isn't all that cold. Coming around from the north. What we call "lake effect". The wind picks up moisture over Lake Ontario. I shoveled once when it was about 2". That is filling back in pretty quickly. It only takes maybe 15 minutes. I'll go out again and keep the driveway cleared. A layer at a time is safer than waiting for it to stop snowing some 24-30 hours from now. I'm supposed to teach tonight, but kid-like, I'm secretly (or not so secretly) hoping they may cancel after-school activities, my cue to stay home.

USE LESS, I don't know about this memory loss thing, I don't remember too much anyway. The wife remembers EVERYTHING! I done quit arguing with her! My head is just so big and cannot hold all the things I should know. I even DEFRAG at times!

I cut down a big pine tree and several small ones for mom this morning. I am resting now, but plan on getting out in the shop. I ran the RV, the RV generator, and the tractor this morning just to circulate the oil and test the batteries. I got two small generators to run, so I will get to them when I can. All the wood work for the log changing table is in the way of moving them out so I can run them. I am waiting on Fedex to bring Bubba's medicine. The wife is gone shopping with my youngest daughter, the pregnant one. I have been having internet trouble at the house here. I have a service call for tomorrow. Every evening it nearly stops or does stop working. Seems like when it is cold, the service goes down. We had the trouble before and they needed to adjust the freqency on the line. Well, time to go to work in the shop.

The local school canceled afternoon activities early, so I posted my note before noon. All but one district I would normally drive through or past now has done the same. The second shoveling was about 4", and looks like time to go again any time now. The neighborhood stray cat my elderly friend calls his came to the door for a hand-out, and scooted right inside. I gave him/her? a plateful and let him look around. My two indoor cats looked, sniffed and gave me the evil-eye, but nothing worse than that. I called the vet: Blackie gets a going-over next week. Neighbor Bob leaves for FL soon so looks like I may have another critter. He has been asking and asking that I feed Blackie, so it's all fine. PS The closest vet says next Thursday I'm checking around to see if anyone has something sooner. In the meantime, I lured Blackie to the garage with sweet words and canned fish, and propped a door open. The worst that will happen, I suppose, is other cats will find their way into shelter, and some snow filters in. Just call me "Crazy Cat Lady in Training".

I had lunch with a friend Monday and she gave me a gift card to Petco. We both have dogs, so that's the gift we normally give each other. I was happy - I found 40# bag of Blue Buffalo Senior on sale today and used my Petco gift card to bring that down to $39 - good price for that brand of food!

I haven't put my tree up yet. We are having Christmas at DD's house, so I considered not even bothering to put it up. However, the youngest granddaughter (4) ask me where the tree was last weekend. She and DGS are spending Saturday night with us this weekend, so I may put up the tree and let her help decorate it.

I can tell I stayed up too late last night. I'm sleepy this afternoon. I need to get in bed and get some sleep tonight.
I'm listening to the audio book "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" while I commute in the car. It's a great story - I've enjoyed it so much! I'm almost done with it and it's one of those stories you just don't want to end.

Our Holiday party for the Department is tomorrow afternoon. I hope I can remember to wear the red & green top I had picked out. I need to go home and set it out, so I don't forget!

Have a great evening, All!!

Vickie, A Tree Grows In Brooklyn is one of my all time favorite books! I haven't listened to the audio book yet - I'll have to see if I can download it.
GMB, the flash drive didn't fall into a Christmas package, did it? I sure hope y'all find it.
Travis, when is your daughter due? You may have told us, but my memory is not always what it could be.
Use Less, how many inches are you up to now? I think you're very wise to shovel less snow, more often.

Our weather is nasty - still very wet and windy. Blew so hard last night that the power went out for a couple hours - probably a tree down somewhere. We have a few small standing dead trees down (saves me having to cut them down), and a number of fir and hemlock are leaning into their neighbors in my woods - those will not be pleasant to cut down at all. As bad as the wind has been today, it's supposed to be worse tomorrow. Oh, goody.

Took Abby to town for her dental appointment today - one step closer to getting her teeth back in good shape. She goes in the 29th for a comprehensive checkup, xrays and cleaning. Then we'll know how many more appointments it will take to finish fixing her mouth.

The weather was so nasty that I decided against running any errands at all - there wasn't anything we really needed, and I'd driven the car instead of the truck, so I wasn't looking for pallets or cull lumber. Did go through the Wendy's drive thru for a late lunch - I was so hungry and a Jr bacon cheeseburger really hit the spot. Abby got a Frosty - something she didn't have to chew.

Abby went out and fixed fence again for her horse when we got home and then came in and went to bed for a nap. I crawled under a comforter to warm up and after I finish posting this, I'll be working on the last scarf for the grands. I finished a black and red striped slouch beanie for my dgs and am working on the matching scarf. I'll be glad to have it finished. I'm using that black yarn that is so difficult to avoid splitting, and it's frustrating! Think I'll have a bowl of soup first - I'm still cold.

Finally got the tree dh cut down into the house and I started putting lights on it, but my nose is running so much, I gave up til tomorrow. I've got most, not quite all of the items for Christmas boxes made for my kids and their families, so can ease up a bit. I don't even unpack all the wonderful decorations I used to put up before we moved to this smaller house. Such a grinch! I need to work on some cards so might to that instead.

Don't envy MGM or Use Less the weather they are getting! Brrr, that lake effect snow can really pile up! We've been enjoying nice, sunny weather with temps in the high 50's and should get winter back this weekend. I'm sure enjoying it while it lasts and have so much winterizing that still needs to be done! Wood needs to be cut too. Luckily we sold our skid loader, so that money will come in handy. Now we need to look for a small tractor. I'm too old to do heavy duty stall cleaning, although I do it, one at a time!

GMB, Hope you find the thumb drive! My Mom lost her diamond ring one day, and thought maybe it fell into the trash. Sure enough, and so glad that I hadn't taken the trash out before she found it!

Homesteader, Woody is adorable!

Monday I took a good friend to Madison, WI to the University Hospital for a check up. It was a dreary day, but the roads were good. I always worry. We had lunch at the Pinecone Cafe in DeForest, just a tad north of Madison. Its a truckstop type of place, huge servings and a bakery not to be believed. I got snickers cupcakes that were to die for! The dinner rolls are huge, and they make their own creamy garlic dressing. Since it is hard to find in my area, I bought a pint and am ashamed to say I got out a spoon and said to heck with the lettuce!

Went to a coffee party yesterday, had not been to one for years. I took the Snickers cup cakes as my treat. There were just three of us and a husband that was in and out, but pretty quiet. Had a great time.

Have two more events this week, unusual for me who hardly ever goes anywhere social.

Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season. Be safe!

Oh boy what a day! Starting out this morning ,slipping and falling in the shower.First time ever in my life.All I can say , I didn't know my husband could get out of bed as fast as he did to come to my rescue.Then I didn't realize how many body parts can get banged up on the way down hitting the build in bench ,cracked my head on the wall and as a finale on my swan dive I fell across the metal strip the doors slide on. All of that backwards!! But praise God besides a headache and hurting all over and some areas I can 't touch ,it hurts so bad ,I am ok.
Well after that excitement we had to take our daughter for that test to get biopsies of her lungs and lymphnodes (sp?).Naturally we wont get results for several days ,but the lung specialist said he does not think it's cancer ,but RA related.By then my tears were flowing from sheer relief. All I could think of was, thank you Jesus! Her problems are serious, but at least not the dreaded C word.

Thanks for the kind thoughts about my situation, and worries about memory loss. I have been a list and calendar keeper, so I restarted those habits. Already feels better. I'm coming around to an idea that I've been on auto-pilot. Waking up enough to recognize that and worry is a good sign. All the schools this side of the county and then down the closest Finger Lake are closed today. The snow belt moves around a lot. A little change of wind direction pushes the lake effect east or west. The worst is often at the far eastern end of Lake Ontario. The wind sometimes has the whole lake length to pick up moisture. They get many feet almost every winter. My other house sometimes gets Lake Erie lake-effect, though it takes a brisk wind due to some lines of hills. I don't have a stick up to measure, but I think the official fall here will be 15" or a little more. I shoveled three times yesterday. I will break it up today, too, since 6 or more inches fell overnight.

My Youngest daughter is due around the end of Jan. It is going to be a boy. I always wanted it to be a surprise. Heck, when this daughter was born, they showed her to me, wrapped in a blanket, and I said, "Nice looking Fellow". The nurse removed the blanket and said it was a girl. I said that was still fine!! I work tonight, so I will be on line then. I have been in the shop today, working on the log changing table. Earlier, a squirrel fell on a transformer and blew out the electricity. I heard the BOOM! I called the power and they had it back on in about 40 minutes. Well, time for coffee!!

Got my cards all ready to mail as well as the 2 packages we are sending. So glad to get that done. When I get off finished drinking my afternoon coffee and shut this down I'm going to get a batch of M & M cookie dough mixed up before I make supper. Ready to bake tomorrow morning.

Travis, power is out here right now.

Wind is really kicking up here, and the power went out about 3 hrs ago. Lots of outages across the county so no telling how long it will be off. We're set up well for power doen situations, but I haven't felt the need to pull anything out yet beyond the cell phone I'm on now. I'll just call it an early night.

Finished the last Christmas scarf last night - so glad to have them finished.

MGM and JaninCO- the thumb drive was at the lake. We had stacked the latest comics on it. GFB and I have both been hacking and wheezing and barking like seals. He thinks its a cold. I noticed yesterday on the drive to the lake that every melaleuca tree in Florida is in bloom. they are highly allergenic. I'm out of elderberry at the lake, will have to wait to dose till we get back to the city. I don't know how ladies who cook dinner and then do the dishes manage. GFB always does the dishes when I cook. He was too physically wiped out on Monday and Tuesday and I did them. By yesterday I was ready to let everything set overnight -just couldn't face cleaning up after dinner- too tired. GFB got up this morning and did them. Dinner last night was turnip thinnings from the garden, smoked sausage, cheesy potato casserole (scratch) and fried apples. The apples left some burnt stuff behind and I had to scrub with loofa sponges and baking soda for 15 minutes before finally getting all the crud that had survived GFBs washing off. So this afternoon I had to reseason it.

We also did 3 loads of wash and hung them to dry. Humidity started out about 40% this morning so everything dried quickly. I made smaller loads than GFB usually does, and used the full wash cycle instead of express. The washer/dryer all-in-one combo is only 2.1 cubic feet capacity, so I had to wash each sheet separately with pillowcases. Because of GFBs hip surgery, he needs to sleep with his legs on pillows, and because of my GERD I need to be propped up-I currently am using 6 pillows. Soe of them date back to the 1980s- they're about the thickness of a sheet of cardboard. Maybe we can replace them soon.
I drove us to the lake- GFB was way too exhausted and out of it to drive. We needed to be there for the satellite dish tech today, and GFB is working tomorrow. He is the one in charge of packing the computers (and thumb drive!) after one too many occurrences where I packed the computer and not the power cord. Well, GFB forgot to pack the printer and this morning he got 22 pages emailed to him about work tomorrow. So he had to drive 2 1/2 hours back to the city to pick up the printer while I waited here for the tech. The connector between the satellite receiver and the cable to the house was rusted, busted, and dusted, according to the tech. After replacing it he kindly pulled down about a half bushel of dead air potato vines. We had cut them off head high a few months back, but they had crawled up the sunflower bush to the cable and then to the receiver, pulling it slightly askew. With a new connector and realigned dish, I got excellent reception of TWC which is about all we use it for these days. Looks like Southern Cal is getting some drought relief. When they have drought, we have high water years. When we have drought, they get too much rain. Hopefully twill be a happy medium for the rest of the year (all 20 days!!)
Also today I planted 3 large pots to multi colored carrots, harvested another pot of lotus, pulled 8 small to medium sized turnip roots, weeded, broke branches off the tithonys sunflower- need to attack the sunflower at the corner of the yard and driveway as it has almost totally blocked the sun from the bananas and several pineapples, and watched the kitties playing outdoors. Our 3 are so invigorated in this cooler weather! And now I have run off the black kitty (didn't have to shoot him with a super soaker, just running at him clapping hands every time I saw him for a couple days worked) our 3 are much happier going outside to play. Yuki has even taken to going out in the yard. For a while there he perched himself in the open doorway like a watch cat, trying to prevent the black cat from strolling in and helping himself to the inside kitties food. I really think the black cat must have had other options. If he was starving, I doubt I could've kept him away - there's still remnants of the 20 lb bag of kitty crunchies we left last Sunday.
Tomorrow maybe I'll look for the solar string lights to hang on the fence. But I hope to be able to get my motor running early enough to ride along with GFB to work. His endurance is way down. My brother told me that's normal after having heart problems....
GFB had the KIA parked on the street in the city and the people across the street backed into it. This makes 3 times that's happened (in 30 years!) Supposedly they have a friend who will pound the dent out for us at no charge.to us. Nobody was home next door when he parked it on the street. Apparently she came home at some point during the morning and then left again.- at least she knocked on our door and owned up to it.
Edited to add- the Pacific NW is certainly getting blasted! MGM stay safe. Stay out of the fall path of trees. Wanted to comment that it sounded like Abby had matured a lot in her time away from home. Isn't it refreshing? Hope things continue to go well on the home front.

Woohoo on finding the missing thumb drive, GMB. Yes, Abby has matured quite a bit...not totally, but so much improved. She is so grateful now for things she used to take for granted.

The power was only off for about 7 1/2 hrs. I finally decided to light a few candles to help keep my bedroom warm (the electronics supply some heat when the power is on), and literally within minutes of lighting them, the power came back on. It's been so warm here the last few days that we haven't needed a fire, but tonight it's dropping into the low 40's, so it's getting a little nippy in the house. Lit a fire, so it'll be warming up soon. From what I could see in the dark, it looks like we didn't lose any more trees - I'll know more once the sun's up.

Wow, MGM, you be careful with that storm activity. Looks pretty bad on the news. I guess the left overs will hit here in a couple days bringing possible snow.

GMB, Whew, glad he found the thumb drive. We've done the 'forgetting thing' ourselves, more so as we get older. I try to make lists of everything that has to go from one place to the other and check them off as we pack, no matter which one of us does it, otherwise we forget. I'll bet the blooming trees are what is getting you both. Something here bothered Mom terribly this fall, to the point where she would sneeze and cough until she would upchuck. She's so resistant to taking more meds that it was difficul to get her to take any allergy meds, however. I tried to always dry her clothes and bedding in the dryer to avoid the blowing pollen outside. Seemed to help a bit.

Taking a break from folding laundry. It's going a little slow since I'm sorting for things that need a mend, should maybe leave, plus clipping out more tags. I hate those scratching/tickling me. Shows you how old my clothes are. My Dad disliked the new things with info imprinted. He said it scratched. I backed out of one social event this weekend. A Swedish-theme Christmas party. I continue to have that waking up to things that need doing here. I am needed at semi-social music jam Sunday; the last lessons of the calendar year are Monday-Wednesday and I want them to be solid. I am trying to feel pleased with doing something, say sorting a box, rather than looking with dismay at the pile of boxes. Also trying not to get distracted. With the laundry, the plan is to handle the clean shirts and the contents of the drawers those items go in, then move on, resisting going through the entire closet. Back to it

Card and packages mailed. Cookies baked. Now I'm warming milk to make yogurt, also making up my weekly batch of Gluten free pancakes that I use for bread. Also am going to mix up a batch of molasses cookie dough that I'll bake tomorrow when our 10 year old grandson will be out for an overnighter. He likes to roll those molasses cookie dough balls in sugar before we bake them.
