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!

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.

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!

I can't tell you how many items that I have purchased because of the "As Seen On TV" section in our local big box store. I just purchased a new sonic ....floor....scrubby machine. To date.....I have used and loved all of those items! Am I just lucky? If you are looking in one of those section some day.....look around I may be shopping there too!

This more than likely will be my last.....lost voice blog for awhile. Even though I have looked at this little inconvenience as a humorous thing. I do step back now and think about folks who have disabilities that do not get better over a short period of time. I have regained a new respect for others. Funny how one event leads to another. I am almost ready to shout it from the mountain tops.

Day two of no voice......I did find it necessary to make a stop at the grocery store yesterday. All was going just fine except for a short stop for a cough drop (found it in the bottom of my purse). I have been feeling fine during this whole thing so I can see where people may not realize that I can not communicate with them. I got to the check out with my necessary food items....and I was ready for the "Did you find everything okay" question....I responded with a smile and a big head nod. Then the next question got me! Do you have any coupon? There was a small one stuck to one item. I pointed to it and mouthed that I could not talk. The checkout person found it and then.....Ask how long has it been without your voice? Have I tried saltwater? Did you catch a cold first? Has this ever happened to you before? Is it quiet at your house? I gave her a croak noise, smiled and ran out the door. (After I paid for the items of course!)
