 Well I was right!  It is getting worse.  Still have not got my shot however our Macey's pharmacy is going to start giving them so I talked to the pharmacist and He said to get on early Monday and we could get an appointment.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

We got two new great granddaughters in the last two weeks.  One is names Hayzel and the other one born today is Stevie.  My hubby says the names are wierd.  Oh well.  

We also got pictures from two of our other greats going their dance program (well after really)  


                                  The two on the left are ours.  


Our weather has been off and on.  Warmest is in the 40s and coldest in the 20's.  We did get a little snow but it melted soon but the mountains really got a lot and that is good because that is where our water comes from.  

We have been keeping quite dormant lately.  With no shots we do not want to risk it.  We have seen some of the grandkids but we wear our masks.  I told my kids I was tired of being left out of all the plans.  It really starts to wear on you.  I need to get busy and do some painting in the house but I just can't get the ambition.  

I am so longing for spring.  I started some zucchini plants indoors and now they are getting too big.  I guess I was a little to soon.  Oh well I will put them in pots and put them out on sunny days and bring them in on cold ones.  

Pictures to come later.  

Well it is 11:00 PM so I had better get to bed.  

God bless you all.

Frustrated!!!!

I am so frustrated with our states.  My husband and I are over 70 and we cannot get a covid shot however the prisoners in the states prison can!  I hear everyday that they are giving vaccinations but every time I try to get an appointment they are all used up.  I am so upset.  Our numbers are going down however our deaths are higher than they were in the beginning.  My granddaughter got the Manerva shot and she was really sick for one whole day.  I have also heard that other people reacted the same way to it.  Why can't we get the phyzer shot?  And don't even get me started on the results of the election.  Nothing is going to change!  In fact it is going to get worse!  I feel like those people in the white house are just a bunch of kids playing games at our risk.  

I just had to get that off my chest.  Our city is the same.  They keep welcoming developers to build but they have not updated the water situation.  I just heard of another subdivision going in and we just have too many people now.  The traffic is getting so bad.  We do not have any good shopping places just eating ones.  How many take out places does one town need?  Now they are building houses with alley ways because the people complained about condos.  So their answer is don't hook them together just make an alley between them.  Do they think we are stupid?  

I miss our quiet country town where you could walk and meet people and you knew who everyone was.  Now I go to the grocery store and I do not know anyone!  

Sorry this post is so negative but I just had to vent.

 Well it is almost over!!!  Please put in your prayers that 2021 is better and more love is shared than hate.

I have had a very busy day today.  It was not a white Christmas here in the rockies.  But we will take what we can get.  Tomorrow is a sad day as we have a funeral to go to.  Our cousin lost his life to a stoke and he leaves behind his wonderful wife of 50 years.

My dear sweet honey (God bless him) found this recliner in a yard sale this year and because my dog likes to sit with me and my old one was small he bought it for $5.00.  Now the price does I repeat does reflect its condition.  It does rock which one of my requirements but it was tan and had been comfortably used by one and all.  So I have loved it thus far however I have tried to clean it with out much success.  

Soooo for Christmas I purchased myself a cover for my wonderfully used recliner and yes both my dog and I fit.  However (yes there is always a however)  the foot stool part did not come with a cover and yes it was the worse of the whole chair.  So to make a long story short I made a cover for the foot stool today.  


And now I am thinking (yes I am always thinking)  I need to make some more that are more colorful.  

I also made a most delicious stew today.  It was clean out the fridge day and what do you do on that day?  You make soup or stew.  So stew it was and Mr didn't ever complain.  See miracles do happen.  

 Now on to my other projects the ones I have been putting off.  I have two new great grandchildren coming next year and I need to get sewing.  I love to sew just not when I have to make something that I have to make.  Oh me I am getting old.          

Well this has been my day.  So what have you been up to?

MERRY CHRISTMAS

 Merry Christmas everyone.  I will be so glad to see 2020 go and I know there are a lot of people who will too.  

I have been very busy with Christmas things.  I made heat bags for all my grands and great grands and that was quite a task.

I have an apple pie in the oven and I am sitting down due to my back giving me trouble.  

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I pray you are staying warm and healthy.  

We usually have a very cold Christmas and today the sun is shining and it is beautiful outside.  

Take care

 This is just a quick post.  We finally got some snow here and it is so welcomed.  

I want to thank those of you who commented on my last post.  I am so thankful for friends right now who care and are feeling like I am.  It makes me realize I am not alone.  

My daughter was going out to Christmas shop and asked me to go with but our numbers are so high right now I do not dare.  My sister-in-law has had covid and she has really been sick.  It is going on two weeks for her and today she said she is feeling a little better.  

I need to get my Christmas cards sent out and my small Christmas presents that I am giving out this year finished.  I am doing rice heat bags for all the girls and the boys are getting beef sticks.  

Being on retirement makes it so we cannot give like we used to.  

I made bread and a roast yesterday and did not get it going until late so I had to stay up and finish everything last night.  It has made me tired today.  Will not  do that again.

I am so thankful for the snow the lord has sent us as we are in so much need of it.  

I pray everyone is safe and happy.  thanks again for all your kind and uplifting words and hugs.  So glad for all of you.

Feeling better today

Today is a great day.  I got into my size 12 pants.  Now on to a size 10.


 I was feeling down today.  This covid is really getting to me.  I have not been with my family for 6 months.   My daughter called and I started crying and told her about all the times I have missed being with them.  I would rather be with them and take my chances and enjoy them.  Well this is what they gave  me.  

They are good to me but I cannot help missing the hugs and kisses and watching my little ones grow.  I should be used to it but the longer this goes on the harder it gets.  


I did my decore and that helped and I have been trying really hard to keep positive about it but it is so hard.  

Well I have been a boob to you all sorry,.  

Please pray this ends soon.
