Cold and chilly

 Well good  morning, looks like a cold one today, starting out in the single digits. Not getting very warm at all today maybe sunshine we will wait an see.
 I was suppose to knit yesterday but got a bit of the cleaning bug  and was working on my mess in the living room. Looks a lot better , when your hubby notices it when he comes in the door, you know it was a problem. Few things to do this morning. Might bake some cookies and make soup.Of course there will be knitting.
  Mary  said she was kept a wake my some scurrying  sounds in her room she couldn't see the offender but brought the Archie in for a look see, he sniffed and smelled and was interested so I think we nay have another mouse fatality by the end of the weekend, at least we are hoping.
  Rob has more tests coming up next week, the local clinic managed to loose the factor 5 blood tests he had done awhile ago and also his fasting lipid panel. I am pretty upset with this, they seem more incompetent than usual. Wish I could get him in to see the Docs at the clinic I go to. It's the matter of insurance.
 Packages came in the mail yesterday Rob got the tablet he was waiting for, and Chuck got the "James Bond" movie Sky Fall. We watched the movie , it was good , but in my book nobody was a better "James" than Sean Connery.Sigh, Got to fix breakfast talk to you later.

Friday Quiet

Early morning, sun not quite up yet I can see it poking through the clouds when I look out my kitchen window. It's a cold one Charlie Shortino this morning ,says the high will be 17 today with periods of sun. Only one day above normal in the coming week and that will be Monday.
  Our Valentines excursion went well, we did a lot of window shopping, found the" golden treasure" a bottom freezer refrigerator- reasonable priced. We will see if it is still there payday. Had lunch out , and a an enjoyable day.
 Along with the good came some "not so good news" Rob has been undergoing testing to find out why he is having memory issues and muscle fatigue, He had a MRI done last week and got the results Wednesday, some time in the past he suffered a stroke,not a mini stroke a full nasty one. According to the Neurologist it was located in the Cerebellum , which I believe is near the brain stem, it is a old one , how much damage was done we will be finding out . Such is life.At least he is here and functioning reasonable well.
 Mary and I have been starting back in getting things ready for the Farmer's Market. I can't wait for spring at least it feels closer now.Well going to fix break fast and hi the knitting and stuff. Oh yes, Mid west alapaca fest is in April, something else to look forward too!. Ducking on out , talk to you later.

Pre Valentine's Day

Beautiful day , to celebrate Valentines on, I realize that tomorrow is Valentines , but the weather is going to be kinda nasty so Chuck and I celebrating today. Going to go look for some things for the house and just enjoy the day together. He even got his hair cut for me!! lol life
  Also on the lookout for a new refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom, Chuck says he is getting to old to have to been way down to see what's in the fridge , I can see his point as he is at least 9 inches taller than I am and the fridge is a short one.
  Nothing much happening here today, still early  and most people are sleeping, so I will duck out and let you know later how this day went.

Sunday Morning, silence

It's February already, we have had some unique weather here in Wisconsin , the typical snow and sleet and a January thaw, with a high of over 50 and then back in the deep freeze again. Today brings freezing rain , rain and snow. We will see what happens the rest of the week ,the weather man promises a mild week, but what is his definition of mild is a somewhat of a curiosity.
  Of course Valentine's day is this week on Thursday, other than hubby saying we are going out to eat. I have no idea what he has planned, he likes to surprise me, which I appreciate.We sat down together last night and played Scrabble,as usual hubby won , I came in second and Mary came in third. We must play more to get our vocabulary back up and of course it's fun.
  Knitting is down for at least a week as I sliced open my thumb on a piece of broken pottery. No stitches just in an awkward place ,on the inside of my thumb, Among everything I am getting a bad case of cabin fever and mix that with spring fever and wanting to start doing some serious cleaning, I am in a tizzy.I am pretty sure that is why some of my family is avoiding me, as I may want to put them to work on my projects list. Sigh!
  See you soon, ducking on out here in Lodi.
