Not sure-   Leave a comment

They talk about reopening things in this country

People need to work, to pay bills, to get back to normal

But I fear it is all being rushed

People are still dying by the hundreds every day and we are in lockdown

Will that double or triple when people are no longer quarantined?


Its scary

Why don’t you get another dog Nana?   Leave a comment

The above question is from my 13 year old grand daughter

One thing is I work nights so it would be stuck in its kennel then and then he would have to be in it when I slept during the day

It just seems unfair to the dog

Plus Rick isn’t a huge fan of dogs and I don’t know if I could trust him to be nice to it

AND I don’t think I am quite ready to replace Max

I so adored that dog

My son Matt came over today with my grand daughter’s Keira and Kayla and it was a great day seeing them and visiting with them

They are exceptional human beings and I adore them so much

The weather was pretty great too

I am truly blessed

So Emily gave us all a scare early Friday morning

Her husband woke up to her gasping for air

Her face and lips were blue

Before he got her to the floor she quit breathing

He did cpr but he said she wasn’t breathing  for 2 or 3 minutes


The ambulance came and after 20 minutes she came back to her self

The ER doctor said she had a seizure

Put her on seizure medication and she has to go to her neurologist on Monday

Of course she can’t drive for 6 months unless she has another one than it will be 6 months after that one


I just thank God that Adam woke up

Emiline and Adam

If Only~   Leave a comment

My husband and I went to Iowa City this morning to Menards.
ON our drive there he said, “Sure wish we were driving to Florida right now”
I said “Me too”
If only.

They said that the temps in Daytona were going to be in the nineties.

That is better than this cold thirty degree crap that we have to deal with.

it is almost the middle of April and we still have freezing temperature.

I could easily quit my job, load up our three younger grandkids and drive to Florida for a week.

I have to take them because their mother starts back to work tomorrow after being off six weeks due to her brain surgery.

if only we could go to Florida.

Darn it.

me too

Dizzy   Leave a comment

I have a funky headache today.
I feel a bit dizzy, just sitting here and typing this.

Not sure if it is vertigo or something else.

I ate and that seemed to help it for a bit but the headache is back again.

It could be because I haven’t slept yet today after working last night.
But last week I was up for 29 hours and had no ill affects from it.




Did some cleaning and a bit of laundry left over from  yesterday and now I am waiting to have a conference call/ face to face via phones with my doctor.

I was supposed to go in and see her today but because of CoVid 19 they aren’t seeing patients.

Grandchildren~   Leave a comment

Keira and Kayla came over today and spent about five hours with me.
They just left and went home with their father.

It is always great to see them and with this coronavirus going around it is hard to find time to see them

This morning I was outside and could feel myself getting quite warm in the sun even though it was a very cool windy day.
All afternoon my grand daughters and I were outside and now I can’t get warm.

I assume it is to do with being tired but I think I may have gotten a touch of too much sun too because it always makes me tired.

I love it.

Don’t get me wrong.
The sun brings such warmth and comfort to me.

I worked in the yard a bit today too.
Sure wish the seventies would come back and stay.

Not sure when I will see Keira and Kayla again.

Probably not for another week or more.

Spring   Leave a comment


Flowers are blooming and for a few days it felt like spring had finally arrived


But alas we are cold again with strong northern winds and cold temperatures 8629b37bdd059b034748bccaa3e09a85

I know one of these days the warmer temperatures will stay

Just have to be patient

NO!   Leave a comment

Well after having a beautiful perfect day yesterday and a beautiful half day today, it has gotten freezing cold again outside.

I heard we may even get snow on Sunday.
Say it isn’t so!

I hate going back to freezing after these last two days.

I started noticing that it was getting colder when the wind picked up from the North.

This was around two o’clock this afternoon.

Now it is blistery and cold again.

I DETEST this weather.

Sure if it was in January or any winter month I could handle it.

But it is almost the middle of April.

We have had such glorious weather.
WHY must we go back to cold?

I just want to cry………………
