I smell banana bread

I'm back home now and I'm baking some Banana-nut bread while I watch the movie, Remembrance, for the second time.  I tried to watch it last night but I must have fallen asleep sometime during the middle because I don't remember what happened after a certain point.

It's still very cold out because my cats don't want to stay out for very long, and since I was outside for awhile, I don't want to stay outside for very long either.  It's not snowing, but it sure feels cold enough to snow.

I sure hope the oven warms the house just a little, or I'm going to have to turn up the heat.  I believe it is getting colder out.  How's the weather in your neck of the woods? 



so far so good as it pertains to my car

I got up very early again this morning and it has been nothing but a hurry up and wait kind of morning.  It's also very cold in the house this morning.  I got up sometime during the wee hours of the morning and turned the heat down just a tad I though, but I must have turned it down more than I thought I did.  I think the cats like it cool in here, so I will leave the new heat setting alone.

So how is everyone's day going today?  I hope okay.  Gotta go for now.  I'm needed somewhere else, someone needs a ride and I have a good ride now :)  

They bring smiles and laughter wherever they go

Good Day's

I'm looking forward to another good day today spent with family.  Yesterday, Sharon stopped by to spend the afternoon with me and we had fun, a few laughs and she treated me to a McDonald's meal.  Today Ron & Gigi are coming to visit.  It's going to be another good day and I can't wait to see them.

Passing it back

Found this two foot window decoration at Myers for $5 yesterday morning and I even got another $2 off with a coupon that Suzanne handed me just as soon as she went thru the register.  The clerk handed Suzanne a coupon worth $2 off her next purchase, so that's the coupon she handed straight back to me.  The clerk didn't give me one, or I would have handed it back to the next customer in line.

I feel good this morning

What a relief!!!  It was good not waking up to a dusting of snow.  Now they are saying that it might arrive this afternoon, but that it won't even be as much as a dusting, just a few snow flurries flying around in the air.  I think I can handle that, how about you?

I'm finally beginning to see an end to all this paperwork that follows after a loved one has passed away.  There are just two to three more things to take care of, unless something else pops up.  I'll eventually get everything taken care of.  Of course most of this could have already been done prior to his death, but I had refused mentally to acknowledge that my sweet husband was dying.  I was waiting for that miracle that I had prayed for, for so long.  

I picked up my SUV yesterday and the Dealer and his mechanic seem to think that they fixed the problem.  Time and the weather will tell me if the leak is fixed.  The sunroof drain was clogged causing water to spill into the car right over the computer housing, which then caused the computer to act up.....at least that is my theory, about the computer.  The reason I came up with that reasoning was because the computer went to sleep when it was raining or snow was melting into the car, and I know that computers don't like moisture very well.  I hope I'm right.

Today I will do laundry and take care of a few chores around the house.  I'll also fill out some more forms and get those sent in.  At least that is my plan for the day, which of course is always subject to change if something better to do comes along :)

Oh Christmas Tree, Poor Christmas Tree

I was watching a Christmas movie and dozing off and on when suddenly I heard that so familiar sound of the Christmas tree,  crashing to the floor.  Thank goodness,  that was the last ornament left on the tree.  There are no more, but the angel on top, and hopefully the cats won't go after that would they????  I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

The tree has been sitting in that very spot for two years, yes two whole years, not bothered by anything except dust bunnies.  Then I put a dozen tiny little colorful ornaments on it, and the fun began.  

Some of the cats are skillful enough to remove just the ornaments, but one or two are not!  I've picked up that tree off the floor a dozen times, re-hung the ornaments until I got smart and started leaving them off. 

It's a funny thing tho.  If the tree is lit up with its blinking red, blue, green & purple lights,  the cats won't bother it.  Go figure huh?

Well, it's time to listen to an assortment of my favorite Christmas songs and watch my TV's screen saver,  which is a slideshow of Jimmy.  Love falling asleep to his handsome face.  I still can't believe that he's gone...... 

I love them both....so cute
