Well...its almost here...not spring....not warmer weather.....tomorrow is the least favorite day of the year!  I bet you can day.  I hope you are in the position of just waiting for your return and not doing the mad dash scramble to get your stuff filed.  I can see why most folks see tomorrow as a not so great day!

Up all night.

Last night I watched TV rather late.  I was called into action when a family member needed to go to the Doctor at a late hour.  I am an early bird.  Always have been.....always will I guess.  I was so interested in late night TV.  I don't recall the last time I viewed TV programming past ten PM.  I did not know any of the late night hosts!  Whats even more interesting the guests on the programs were actors I had never heard of!  I guess I need to stay up later more often!!!

Well here we go.....if the cold temps are not enough to make us extra crabby....lets put a wind event into it.  Did you hear the wind last night?  No?   Well then go out and look for your trash containers!  The two that I moved this morning I think belong to my neighbor to the east.  That's when I relocated them any way this morning.  Hope you can find yours!

One more month!

Oh Oh where is spring???? Look at the calendar....Spring does not come till March 20th!  I keep telling myself that but it is not helping.  With the extended forecast way below normal I am just waiting for the birds to start singing their spring song!  I think the birds little beaks will need to thaw first.

Over the weekend I discovered that On Demand had reruns of the night time soap Dallas.  It was selections from the second season of the new edition of the old show.  Well, because I have not missed a show from the first time around in the late 70's and 80's, I watched with enthusiasm.  The third season of Dallas will be offered on TNT in a couple of weeks.  You know I will be watching and reliving a wonderful memory.  I think this may be my favorite entertainment.

Hanging On By A Thread

This morning as I was getting ready for our Grand Baby to visit......I noticed that on of his most snuggled stuffed toys had a large rip in the back.  My first thought was....super glue...or just toss it and buy him a new one.   Then somewhere way back in my mind ....reality got a hold of me.  This is one of his favorites stuffed toys.   He has loved it for almost a year now.  So......because I don't do a lot of sewing......I questioned my fix it skills.  I must say that I surprised myself.  The stuffed bunny is now sporting a beautiful whip stitch repair.  Good as new!  There is a deeper message here!
