Snow, Ice, Earthquake…

The snow and ice are gone.

Everything is back to normal
although some folks still don’t have power,


and that is not good…they are not especially happy.
I would be very cranky.

So all is well…but…
last night we had an earthquake.



It was  a 4.1 centered about 60 miles from here.
There was a loud noise and the building sort of vibrated.
No damage and no one hurt.


So all is well.

I have experienced
tornadoes, blizzards, a hurricane, ice storms, and now an earthquake.
I am thankful that I survived them all
with just some inconvenience and no bad stuff.

Wonder what will be next?

Tuesday, Teddy has some news…

Hi Peoples!

Guess what…don’t even try…this is so unbelievable you will never guess it.

I am working on my own blog!

Mama has to help cause I don’t have fingers and so can’t type.

Anyway, I am putting it all together and will let you know when I am online. 

It’s a bit of work, you know.  Lots to think about; theme, and background, about page, stuff like that.

 Mama’s cautiously mildly sort of going forward with the idea.

But I am excited. 

So excited I am worn out!

Saturday, I did it…

I’ve checked things off the list!

You know the dreaded to-do list.

A friend and I went shopping and I got stuff I needed to have to actually do something on the list.

  • Teddy has a spiffy new placemat for his dishes
  •  the bathroom has a new shower rod (not really a new rod but a cover for the old rod so it looks new) and new hooks for the shower curtain.
  •  I also got some things I needed to start Christmas gifts so I am good to go those projects.
  • new extension cord so I can plug all the techie things that need to be charged every night.
  •  got a haircut.
  • took an over due book back to the library.
  • took a package to the Fed Ex pick up place.

A very good couple of days.

Monday, way to start the week \O/…


jelillie has honored me with this award.  Thank you, je, I appreciate your kindness.

With this award I am instructed to tell 7 things about myself, give  7 links to posts in different categories, and pass this to 7 other bloggers.

OK here goes:

7 things about me

  1. I took typing in school and got an A but that was so long ago there weren’t computers and we used typewriters…I can’t remember if they were manual or electric
  2. I type using 2 sometimes 3 fingers–so much for the A in typing
  3. I often eat cookies for breakfast
  4. I often eat cookies for lunch
  5. I don’t eat cookies for supper but do sometimes have them for dessert after supper
  6. Sometimes I take off my bifocals to read
  7. I like my hair messy which is a good thing because that’s what it is most of the time

There are lots of blogs to pass this to here are just 7

As you may have noticed, or not, I skipped one of the 3 things I am to make a list of 7.  I am skipping this one because I am a rule-breaker–sometimes.

Today, I think I will leave this as it is.  Thanks again, je.
