hoping dickc enjoys the skiing. I don't mean to get bogged down in my thoughts about my duties, but sometimes things just get to you.

I'm so glad to have my Gas Buddies. God Bless each and every one of you.

hurting.

Yesterday, at church, our young choir director came flying out of the sanctuary and plowed right into me, crushing me against a door frame. I have a cracked rib as a result. He was so upset, but how can I be mad at him? He was just getting the gang ready for their first performance and he wasn't really paying attention.

And what a performance! Their sound was ethereal. Amazing.

Blessings to everyone.:)

a bit tired this morning. Did not sleep well last night for some reason. Will be out getting in the last day of the season at my ski resort. They are closing after today. There is another resort in Vermont that will stay open. I will drive over there tomorrow and ski there, then drive home.

a grandfather for the third time. My new grandson, Nicholas, was born at 11:18 PM. 7 lbs 10 oz, 20 inches. Daughter is pretty tired still this morning. She did not sleep much last night.

Wishing everyone else has a better day today. Am OK so far today. Time will tell if that holds. Looking at a diet change to try to cure these headaches. Think I eat too many carbohydrates. That can cause many issues.

It looks like we all have our cross(es) to bear.

People tell me that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.... That is so EASY to say.

Pard: I will say a special prayer for you and EH.

wishing I had a magic wand to hurry dickc's grandson's birth, and get rid of dickc and TargetsMom's migraines, clean up the winter's worth of work that Roadieboy is staring at, smooth things out for CH and PP, and wish I could share that Cuban cigar with Calinda.

Also wish I could do something for El Hubdud, he's not at all well. Don't know if he ever will be. Congestive heart failure is cruel.

hoping all goes well for your daughter and family dickc.

what is with the head aches?
I know they suck.
I worked with a band in the 90's and we missed a couple of shows when the singer had migraines. He still paid us, so it hurt him double.

I now have 4 days off, well 4 days home from work.
There is a winter of stuff to clean in the yard and once I a rested I am getting right on it.

Have a good day.

still fighting off a cluster migraine. 4 days is quite enough! Not really painful, but enough to stifle the desire to do much.

happy I had my wisdom teeth out in '77. I had to take a full week off work. My ma came over and brought me a huge apple, a bag of doritos and some taffy. Then she started telling me cornball jokes. I never knew she'd be that funny.

Getting ready for a renters meeting. Don't know what that's all about.

sitting quietly in my living room. I had my wisdom teeth out nearly 40 years ago. Had a dry socket with it. I know how the pain can be. Hoping Calinda heals quickly.

happy that Roadieboy had a day off.

Also happy that Calinda's surgery is now in the past. Once you are over this misery, you will feel so much better. The rough part is keeping the faith that the pain will stop! I've had wisdom teeth removed, it ain't no picnic, and Calinda has my sympathy.

back at work.

I guess one full day off will have to do.
I guess I should be happy that someone seems to want me.
The day will come when the phone stops ringing

Read Pards post about the snow in Michigan, just now it has started snowing here in Regina.
No where near a record for us this year though.

Calinda, there are days I wish I had Elvis's doctor, or maybe Michael Jackson's.
My doctor is too sensible and concerned about my long term health.

Well goodnight all.

suffering miserably. Had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday; and it was anything but easy. Doc gave me hydrocodone for pain; and I was sick sick sick all last night; until I remembered I had a couple Darvons stowed in my medicine cabinet.

I hope everyone is okay. Pardon me for not reading back posts, but I just took my meds, and they will be kicking in soon.

Pard: you have great restraint.... enough said.

Good night everyone, from La La Land....

My wife let me sleep in this morning.

I was thinking that not that many years ago I worked 16 to 18, even 24 hour shifts AND had a few beer during or after work.
This weekend I walked in the door and went straight to bed
, and last beer I had was St Patrick week. ( I think)

Well couch is calling.

Good night.

wishing that warmer temps and higher humidity did not raise the allergen levels. I am feeling a mild headache and really need to go out and finish my raking. I hate doing so may make the headache worse. Dang mold allergy! Only have the balance of the back yard to do. Then lime on the backyard. The front and sides are raked and limed.

Calinda - Spring raking is needed around here to "fluff" up the lawn and scratch by the roots to aerate them . It also rakes out any winter kill and lets you know if you have bare spots. It is really necessary up here for a good start to the lawn. It is just now starting to show some greening up.

Roadieboy - Pleasant dreams! Hope you wake up reasonably rested. After that many long days in a row, it will take more than one night for a full restore.

Pard - Hope you have caught up with the resting. All of my family lives nearby so we see them regularly and do not get "overdone".

Celtic_Heart - Boy do you do a lot for others! I have my hands full at home a lot of the time. We have the grand kids every afternoon (both going on three, my handicapped son lives at home, and my wife is severely type two bi-polar. Don't know what this soul did in a prior life but it must have needed some rehabilitation in this one! Will probably not go to church for Easter Sunday services, but I do think about what HE gave up for us. Find too many hypocrites in church. I am sure The Lord can hear me just fine without my presence in a church.

TargetsMom - Had a pretty good weekend. Saturday was mid 50's and great spring snow for skiing. Sunday was a morning of heavy wet snow with poor visibility and not as much fun. THe year end big BBQ held by the mountain on Sunday was still fun however!

happy.

A beautiful Palm Sunday it is. Service was truly blessed this morning. We had a wonderful pancake breakfast and following was the Lord's Supper. Wow...

I talked to the Deacons after the breakfast this morning. They have given me the leftover sausage, butter, eggs and milk for me to use to feed the homeless this Saturday. This is our last Saturday for hot food for the season. We'll start up again in October. In the meantime, they'll be getting pizza and other cold food from the others who work for our food bank.

Now to plan our 4 1/2 months of camp hosting for the Michigan DNR. I'm excited about hosting this year. I've put in a request from JIFFY mixes in Chelsea, Michigan, for some cookbooks and donations of their mixes. We plan on having several "Made in Michigan" days where we showcase our lovely state, its natural beauty and resources and the countless products that are Michigan Made. We'll fly our flag, make all kinds of stuff, have history and geography lessons... just a lot of fun.

It's Holy Week... whether you are a believer or not, hubby and I will keep you in prayer. We always do anyway. This is the time we remember when our Lord came into Jerusalem and faced His accusers. Keep these events in mind as you go through the week. It all leads up to our most holy celebration... He is not here! He has risen!

God bless, everyone. Have a blessed day. :)

here at my favorite time of day. It is quiet, now that the cats have gone to bed (MY bed; they're in the "sweet spot...")

Hey Pard: time flies; especially when you're having fun.... You need to get some rest.

That's a great thought, TM. Too bad the good ideas never come to fruition....

Dickc: I don't rake anymore. I always use the bagger on the lawnmower to catch clippings and leaves. My big bald cypress dropped all of its' fronds; I mowed all of them up....

Hope that the RB family is doing okay. Ditto to CH.

Worked at church yesterday and had hubbys sisters and one BIL over for lunch. Church secretary ate with us as well. Had the juiciest burgers ever, homemade fries, pickles, onions, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes, etc. Yum!!!

We all had a great time.

Sunday is our pancake breakfast at church. Any leftover sausage is given to me for downtown next week. Will turn it into sausage gravy to go with biscuits and cheesy eggs and oj.

Then we'll get ready for camp hosting for five months.

We get a boot out of helping people. It's such a great feeling. :)

Hope everyone is doing well and healthy.

God bless! :) :) :)
