Weekend Rewind

Spring is in the air..... We have been blessed with great weather this weekend.

Hub and I went out to dinner Friday evening.  It has been awhile since we were able to do this.  Yes, we have grabbed a sandwich here and there, but for us to go and sit down and enjoy a meal-been awhile.  Truly enjoyed the evening until...the bill came. hub had ordered a $30 steak-that was just for the steak not including his sides and beverages!  Gosh-what were you thinking was my question to him.  His reply, "I wanted it and I ordered it."  Guess it will be another while before we are able to go out to dinner. hehe
Daughter#2 called Friday evening, in a panic. She needed all of her medical records by Monday because she will be starting a rotation round (first one) in the hospital. Looks like to me the school already has this...but no the school needed another proof.  No problem I tell her; we can bring the records to her tomorrow.  Still panicing (I hope this is a word) she asks, "Mom do y…

1. What's the biggest change since your childhood in the way people think or act?
The way people act.  I see many people having very little manners, being respectful, or even talking to each other.

2. The Olympic Biathlon involves cross country skiing broken up with either two or four rounds of target shooting. Which part of that would stress you out more? Or would you love them both equally?

The rifle shooting especially if my skiing was awful.

3. February is National Canned Food Month...what is your most often purchased canned food item?  What was in the last can you opened?
Margaret Holmes-Cabbage!!

The snowstorm did hit!


The weatherman kept saying it was going to hit...anticipation...it did!  School was cancelled for the remainder of the week (Wed.-Fri)-I think we are up to day 15!  Gosh I dread making up the days!  As a teacher it is okay to hear schools are closed, but now enough is Enough! So... I went to get grandson from sitter and kept him a few days and nights.  We enjoyed some time in the snow.... Getting ready to play in the snow....





Should I take down my flag???

We made Valentine Cookies....Gosh I am really bored...All knows how I hate to bake..


The cookies were delicious!
Daughter was able to dig her way out of Roanoke and made it home safely!!  Her friends were all home and she wanted some catching up time.....

 Friend is stationed in Hawaii...boy was she surprised when she came home...

They (daughter and friends) planned to get together on Saturday for a 'girls night out'-- My house was the meeting place.


They have been best of friends since high school-gosh…

Love the Hodgepodge


1.What makes love last? Commitment--not many people are committed to marriage.  When something doesn't go their way, instead of trying to work it out, they want to just quit.  True love is realizing that some point in time you may have to give 90% -I have never believed in you give 50% and I give 50%-some days you may have to give more!

2. The Beatles made their US debut fifty years ago this week. Are you a fan? If so, what's your favorite Beatles tune?

I like their music-not really a fan.  Favorite Beatles song--"Hey Jude"
3. Valentine's Day-your thoughts? Do you celebrate in any way? Do anything special for the people you love? Expect anything special from the people who love you?

Hub and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day like we use to with giving each other gifts, etc.  We usually go out to dinner and relax and enjoy each other.  For my daughters, I use to fix a box and send  this to them in college.  I will probably get th…
