Those two youngsters took the parting well and DH and I did fine. It was very obvious that they had discussed this transition many, many times. She was bubbly and excited and took charge of all the paperwork and schedules. That is as i... Read more

It totally skipped my mind. We will be gone tomorrow morning to see College DS off to basic training. He says he is ready but I sense that he is nervous to leave his new bride for 6 months. But she will be busy working on her nursing d... Read more

To a nice warm place but being land-locked in South Dakota, I think I will just wait out this cold snap. By Saturday, the worst should be over. Still learning something new every day. If I get a chance, I will work on the copy and paste ... Read more

Joker, pushing 15 years, has taken to retiring for the night in front of the register in the kitchen. It is warmer there that laying on our bed. I wonder how many years she has left as she has lost weight but still seems to eat well. DS ... Read more
The wind and the cold-what a combination
Monday, January 02, 2017      15 comments

The wind arrived first but now the cold has arrived too. Over day highs tomorrow will be 13 but the next 3 days will be colder. This blast will move well to the South so I imagine most Sparkers will be feeling it too. My solution for tod... Read more

We decided to take down the Christmas tree at church as everyone will be working the rest of the week and Saturday had too many commitments already. After an hour, it was looking pretty good. Just DD and her family, her MIL and DH and I.... Read more

Missed blogging on Christmas but it was a wonderful day. We had rain off and on and acquired over a inch. Odd for December. Monday was spent cleaning and moving all the cookies into smaller containers and putting things back where they... Read more

A whirlwind day of preparations from changing the paraments at church, deep cleaning in the dining room, wrapping presents and making chicken noodle soup for the whole family. Off to church at 7, listening to College DS and GD practice... Read more

The last batch of raisin cookies are done. The first batch of bread is coming out of the oven and the last 3 loaves go in now. The laundry hamper is empty except for the clothes we wore today. One basket to fold tomorrow. I did close... Read more
