March Roll Call.....

There is an old weather saying that goes, "When March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb".   Well it should be good an confused here in MI then!  Yesterday was a bit of both.  It was cold and wavered betewen sunny and calm to overcast and blustery!  Guess we'll have to wait for March 31 to know how it will 'go out'!

What's it like where you are?  Are you as fed up with the winter weather as I am?!    Do you have anything fun planned for the month?

I have a couple of meetings (VD - that's Victorian Day, for those of you unfamiliar with my 'VD' term!!) and VFW Ladies Auxiliary.  I will be going out to my friend Syl's house a few times as I need to make a new corset and she has the pattern I want to use. Besides we really enjoy doing our sewing together - helps keep us both focused! No big parties or dinners or anything like that planned and no birthdays or anniversarys to celebrate. Sure do wish I could say I was headed South for a few weeks tho!!!  LOL

How about you?  Any plans to share?

Aaaaiiii Karrrramba.  Sorry, I couldn't resist.  I now fit into this category!  Where did the time go?  YES, I am tired of the snow.  I am in Chicago, and it's crazy how much snow we are getting!  You love to sew?!  I love to quilt, but I rarely find time for it.  I still have a "one block wonder" to quilt...the piecing is all done.  Plans?!  Work is really busy this month, so I haven't made any significant plans, other than linedancing, a west coast swing class, and a hustle class.  I LOVE dance, and it's about time that I learn it, as I am not getting any younger!  I have been neglecting my dogtraining pursuits because work leaves me too exhausted at night.  :(  In another month, perhaps I will take that back up.

Hi Kt, as you know, this is a very challenging time for me. Bill is declining in health every day. It is very difficult to see him this way, but at least he isn't in any pain, no plans for March, just taking every day as it comes.

What's it like where you are? Cold Are you as fed up with the winter weather as I am?! YES big time can't wait for this to end.. Do you have anything fun planned for the month? NO just having sonic therapy on the ankle and I want to be able to walk on the foot again. NOT fun not to dance like I do at square dancing clubs. This winter has been hectic way to cold and way to long.. ITS time for warmth.... In time I hope someday I will move to another area that the snow is not so bad compared to here.... Living on a country road in a house that is in need of insulation.. would be nice...

I would like to welcome all the new people who have come in and the newly 50 somethings......funny but you probably don't feel much different than you did when you were forty nine....but fifty sounds really adult don't it?
We have had a different winter. Very little snow but some very cold temps....and it is different from day to day.....the last couple days have been rain,snow, sleet, wind and rain. And this afternoon the sun came out......We are ready for some days when you at least want to think about a garden even if you don't put one in anymore..I still plant some herbs at the camper ,plants have always been my thing. Love them, but mostly now just take pictures of them.

We are finally getting our bathroom done. Del has taken out the shower and the vanity, tomorrow the plumber comes and then the toilet comes out. And I will tell you that is the scary part......because if you don't know now you will probably find out that older ladies HAVE to have the bathroom ready cause there is no option to hold it anymore....lol........But he says that they will put the floor down and put the toilet in right away........and I hope he knows what he is talking about......

I am not a fan of the flooring options we have anymore. If you don't like tile(I am not a fan) and can't afford hardwood.....the only other option is this stuff they use now that has the feel of leather which is ok I suppose but you can't get it in patent leather.....so you are left with this stuff that looks like river rock or something it is dark, ruff and ugly......my opinion sorry if I like nice shine and pretty...........

I think we are going to paint the walls white over the paneling and if we hate it when we are done we will pull the paneling out and put up sheetrock.......

But first the bathroom then we will run away to the camper for the summer..........and think about the house later.....lol
