Good Morning XP,
Monday with the son here went well. He was here for about 5 hours and we were busy every minute or should I say he was. We did take a walk when he was done.

Glad he was here to set up the new Gmail. Tricky since I already have a Gmail acct thru my isp. He also installed malware bytes for me in each computer.

Now its time to catch up and eat. You had pizza and I'm having a sweet potato and Cream of Wheat. I know, don't day it. :-)

Any special plans for today, Tuesday?

Today you get to make a sortable puzzle. Like the others, it's not difficult.

The song is one I share every year because it's one of my most
favorite Christmas songs, O Holy Night sung by John Berry.
The graphics in the youtube video do not change.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Good afternoon, EXPAPERMAKER! Yes, we did enjoy the lights! :)

On Sunday, Mom and I went to church at 7:30 am. Later on, I worked 10 am - 6 pm. I filled items in Dairy and Frozen and took care of a few other tasks. After work, I got together with Ian. I got the Final Exam grade for Info Systems: 85%.

Good morning, XP,

Yes, the Falcons won a thriller-of-a-game yesterday, 30-14. Even though they have a bot-so-good record, if they win next Sunday (at home), they'll be the division leader and into the playoffs. :)

The plan for today (at the moment) is to take Mom to an orthopedic doctor's appointment at 12:45. Time to see how her fractured ankle/foot is doing. Not crazy about the time, but there's not much I can do.

Have a great day!

Hiya Claudie, Dr. Tx2 and iceeman99. Thanks for dropping by.

Claudie - Thank you. Congrats to the Falcons. If they can win next week over the Panthers, they're in the playoffs. Hard to believe but I hope they make it.

Sounds like it was a really busy day for all you guys before the game yesterday. Kids all over the place. :) Hope the pizza was good. I know the game was. :)

Hope you have another fun day today.

Dr. T - Thank you. That book may not be popular enough to justify large print but it hasn't been out all that long either. Maybe there will be one later.

My library doesn't have that book you read. They only have one book of his but it was co-authored with someone else and is a political book of some sort. Non-fiction also. I can get it from the statewide system though and have it written down to do.

Shopping went much better yesterday. Got almost everything we needed. Much better than the day before.

Did get to watch more football than usual yesterday and the games I saw were good ones too. :) 4 cheese pizza helped a lot. :)

Yes, you did tell me you were having to change your email again. Hope he can get everything done and you guys have a nice visit too. :)

Yay! I got all 8 differences on the snowmen. :))

Have A Great Day Everyone!

P.S. Don & Lighting. Hope you guys had a great day and have another one today. Take care.

Good Monday Morning XP,

Feedback today from L. on the book I suggested you read and she really likes it.

How did today's shopping go?

Son will be here on Monday, mostly to help me on the computer. I may have said I have to set up a new Gmail acct since my isp is changing their email on the 12th. I need him to export/import my contacts for me. That's not all he's coming for. BTW, the address you have will still work. Not changing anyone yet.

Have had much better days. You can read all about it you know where, if you're so inclined. It's getting very ol* again.

Here's an easy one for today.
Spot the differences in the two snowman.

The song for today, naturally Frosty the Snowman.

Have a Magical Monday!

Good morning, XP,

Yes, the kids get along well together, esp. Jake and Alhana, who seem to be Best Buds!

Son, Alhana and I will be leaving about 10:15 this morning to go visit Mom for about an hour (we'll leave when she goes downstairs to the dining room for lunch); on the way back home we're going to stop at a local pizza place and get a pizza (of course) and what's called 'crazy bread.' All that'll be taken home for lunch and for watching the Falcons/New Orleans Saints game. Hoping for a win today for the Falcons!

Have a great day!

Hiya Claudie, Dr. Tx2, iceeman99, Don, and Justin. Thanks for dropping by.

Claudie - Thank you. Sounds like all the kids had a great time yesterday. I'm sure you did too. I'll bet you slept well last night. :)

It's great that they all get along so well. I imagine Jake and Emma missed Alhana too.

Hope you all have another wonderful day today.

Dr. T - Thank you. Appreciate the name of that book. I haven't checked my library yet, but if they don't have it, I'm sure I can get it from the statewide system. I'll look a little later.

Glad that potluck was a good one for you. I'm sure you enjoyed the visitating too. :)

Shopping wasn't that great this week. Walmart seems to have cut hours on their help and the shelves had a lot of bare spots. We even went early again. Be picking up the slack at the other two stores today.

Thanks for the safety reminder. Have a ways to go yet. :)

Don - Thank you. Great news on the tests. I'm happy for you. :)

I'm sure that helped you enjoy your day.

Hope you have a really nice day today.

Justin - Thank you. I'm sure the Customer Service booth is a stressful place on most days. Glad you made it through it OK.

Great that you were able to work with Katie and then go Christmas shopping with her later on. You guys probably enjoyed all the lights also.

Nice that you and your mom visited grandma again. Especially with a gift of cookies. :) I'm sure she enjoyed the ride around too.

Cute pic of you and the giant snail. :)

Hope the goes smoothly for you. Enjoy yourself.

Have A Great Day Everyone!

P.S. Lighting hope the day goes well for you. Take care.

Good evening, EXPAPERMAKER! Yes, I actually haven't used the taxi in a long time. It still started on the first try! :)

Today’s Picture:
Washington Lights: Snail

On Friday, I worked a 2:30 pm - 11:30 pm shift in the customer service booth. It was a busy and stressful shift. On Saturday, I worked a 10 am - 6 pm shift in grocery. Though, I did a little of everything! After work, Mom and I had stuffed mushrooms for dinner and went to visit Grandma. Then I did some Christmas shopping with Katie and went on a drive with her.

Good Morning XP,
Quick stop.
Good potluck. How food settles with me remains to be seen.
A LOT of rain with slides, accidents and road closures from what I read a few minutes ago on the county web site.

How was shopping?
Careful on the stairs.
I hope you came back on Sat. and picked up the book info I left earlier.

Your Sunday Christmas movie is entitled, Christmas Through The Eyes Of A Child by Patsy McNutt Morgan.
The song is "O Christmas Tree," by Magical Christmas Instruments, vol 3.
It's a Steve Politte presentation.

Note that you need to scroll down on the web page for the movie.

May you have a blessed Christmas!

Good Morning XP,

Here ya go, the book I am reading, "The Dog Who Could Fly," by Damien Lewis.
If your library doesn't have it see if they can get it for you.

Hopefully I will finally finish it today.

Easy to figure with only one word, "computer."

May today be a good one for you, esp your shopping excursion.

Good morning, XP,

Son and Alhana got back here about 10 last night; it was soooo good to see her! It was just a short time together, though, since everybuddy pretty much went to bed after that (both Son and Alhana had gotten up about 6 yesterday morning for work and school).

Another busy day here...Daughter will be bringing Jake and Emma over about 11:30; we'll take the kids out to eat and play at a local fast food place, and then bring them back here for a few hours of spend-together time. The plan is for Son to take Jake and Emma back home mid-afternoon; when he (and probably Alhana) get back, we'll 'do' Alhana's Christmas. After that, I'll probably need to rest up for the rest of the day! :)

Have a great day!

Hiya Claudie, Don, Justin, Lighting, and Dr. T. Thanks for dropping by.

Claudie - Thank you. That was a lot of traveling for your mom's doctor appointment, but I guess you didn't have any choice. You did get some of the information you wanted at least. Wasn't all good, but now you know.

I saw the note in TL that your son and Alhana arrived safely. Hope you guys have a great visit this weekend. It's been a while since you saw her. :)

Don - Thank you. Sure hope the tests turn out well for you. Glad to see that you were able to at least ride the bike today. Exercise will help the cholesterol too.

Hope you have a really nice day.

Justin - Thank you. I see the Katie taxi is still in service. :)

Glad to see you got a good night's sleep.

Nice pic of the welcome sign for the Festival of Lights. I'll be waiting to see more. :)

Hope your day goes smoothly for you. Enjoy yourself.

Lighting - Thank you. You're right about the football game with the Saints and Falcons. Kind of the battle of the losers. :)

Hope you can get the painting finished and get paid over the weekend. Sounds like it was a big job.

Hope the day goes well for you. Take care.

Dr. T - Thank you. Sometimes the rut is all you have. Not much can be done except to live with it.

I've been trying to load your note up there ↑. Three times and it doesn't want to load again. I'll try again when I finish here.

I tried the Memory Game one more time just before I shut down yesterday and it worked. Go figure. :)

Have A Great Day Everyone!

Good morning, XP,

Today is the start of some busy, busy days for me!

I'll be taking Mom (this morning) to see the heart doctor for the follow-up appointment to her visit to the hospital. It's going to be a chore b/c I couldn't get an appointment at the facility right across the street from her. Instead the appointment is here in my town. So! I have to go get Mom, bring her back to my town for the appointment, then take her back home, and THEN I come back home! Whew! Hoping to see about getting something to help keep Mom's sodium stay up.

Thankfully then I get to stay home. However Son will be going down to meet Alhana's mom (about 2 hours from here) and bringing Alhana back to stay with us until Tuesday. Surely looking forward to that! :)

Hiya Claudie, Don, Dr. T, and Justin. Thanks for dropping by.

Claudie - Thank you. Glad to see that you got all the big stuff done that you wanted to do yesterday. With Mr. Claudie's help, of course. :)

Hope today goes well for you and your mom. Sounds like it could be a busy one.

Don - Thank you. Glad to see you made the workout again yesterday. That should make you feel better.

Had a little bit of snow/sleet last evening that wasn't predicted. Slicked up the roads and sidewalks but should melt today.

Hope you have a really nice day.

Dr. T - Thank you. I do read the hug prayer topic every morning and saw that you had a bad day. Glad to see that you were better. :)

Can't beat the price on those eggs. Don't know what we'd do with them either. Eat as many as we could, I guess. :)

Same plans for this weekend as all the others. Grocery shopping and laundry. :)

Hmmm. That game didn't work for some reason. All the page background loaded but nothing else. Guess it didn't want to play. :)

Justin - Thank you. Glad to see that you got some overtime this week. That will help. Nice that you had all those gift certificates for your grocery shopping too. Every little bit counts.

Very nice picture. Not familiar with the Vocation Cross but I imagine it was an honor to have it. :)

Hope today goes smoothly for you. Enjoy yourself.

Have A Great Day Everyone!

Today, I worked 8 am - 5 pm at Al’s Franklin and Mom worked 9 am - 5 pm, bagging at Al’s Karwick. After work, we did some grocery shopping and I made vegetable beef barley soup.

Good Day XP,

Whoops, I told you I might forget one afternoon/evening, and I almost did.

No idea if you're still following my progress or lack of, in my hug prayer topic, but I was somewhat better later today, thank goodness.

I got all my stops made in town before my hair cut. I literally flew from place to place. Can you use a dozen eggs? I spent $5 so that meant I could get eggs for $.05. I don't need them, but I couldn't pass that up. Think I'll eat eggs for supper.

Do you have any plans for the weekend?

Maybe you can try today's "challenge." I was never good at these. My kids could always beat me when we playing the memory game.

Are you ready to play a short Christmas matching memory game today?

While you play/post you can listen to Andy Williams sing, It's the Most Wonderful Time Of the Year.

Have a Fantastic Friday!

Hiya Claudie, Don, Dr. T, and Justin. Thanks for dropping by.

Claudie - Thank you. Glad to see your mom's first PT session went well for her. I'm sure she was tired afterward. Sounds like they are going to get her in shape. :)

WTG with the errands and the Discount. I got mine yesterday too. Didn't save a lot but every little bit helps. :)

Hope today goes just as well for you.

Don - Thank you. That's great that the workout went well for you. I'm sure you did have to catch up with all the latest news. Sounds like the socializing at the gym is good for you too. :)

Nice pic you have now for your avatar. I'll show that one to Loni when she gets up. Bet she will like it also.

Still no sun here yesterday and none for today either they say. Had a few snowflakes but that was all. Sun would make it seem nicer. Depressing here the way it is now.

Hope you have a really nice day.

Dr. T - Thank you. Yesterday didn't go too bad for me. Stopped at the library and visited with the librarian for a few minutes and then to the grocery store for my Discount this week. Needed milk and a couple other things. Every little bit counts. :)

I did a little bit of the tree decorating. That was fun. Didn't bother with the music though. It might work but by the time it's done loading, I'll be gone. :)

Justin - Thank you. Hope you did well on the Info Systems test. As much as you studied, I'm sure you did. :)

Too bad about the cold food. That's no good at all. Somebody just wasn't paying attention.

I'll bet grandma enjoyed the pics of the Christmas lights. Sure she liked the ride to the tree in the activity room also.

Blinds are very private when they are closed. Nice. :)

Hope your day goes smoothly for you. Enjoy yourself.

Have A Great Day Everyone!

Good Day XP,
Today was a very quiet day; reading, walking and doing a bit of this and that.

I'm not sure that my posts for the next few week days will work for you, but I'll leave them anyway.

Now, back to reading, walking and this and that...really.

How did you Wed. go?

Are you ready to decorate the Christmas tree?

While you're decorating and/or posting here is an instrumental version of O Christmas Tree that you can listen to.

Have a Thankful Thursday!

Hiya Lighting, Claudie, Don, Justin, and Dr. T. Thanks for dropping by.

Lighting - Thank you. Hope you got your work in yesterday afternoon after the rain. Sounds like a good thing that you had some indoor work to do next.

Unusual that you oouldn't find any round ball games you wanted to watch. I'm sure you found something else. ME TV maybe.

Hope today goes well for you. Take care.

Claudie - Thank you. Really glad to see that your mom's PT problem worked itself out. Your mom is just too busy there with other stuff. :) Funny she couldn't find her.

Good that the WM trip worked out well for you and your mom. You are lucky that you have that greeter to watch out for you guys. That was nice of you giving her a gift card.

Hope today works out just as well for you.

Don - Thank you. Glad to hear about the placard. I can understand not going to the gym after the doc appointment. You just needed a little rest.

Nice that you get a break from the doctors until after the holidays.

Snow showers here today. Shouldn't amount to much. Might mix with rain later.

Hope you have a really nice day.

Justin - Thank you. That was a nice thing for you and your mom to tour the town looking at the Christmas lights. I'll be looking forward to the ones from the park.

That shrimp pasta does sound good. Bet you guys really enjoyed it.

Glad that you were able to get some good sleep after the busy day of studying. Good luck on the test.

Those blinds really work well. They darken the room and provide some privacy.

Hope today goes smoothly for you. Enjoy yourself.

Dr. T - Thank you. Glad to hear that the light headedness doesn't happen often.

Sounds nice sitting in the car eating your ice cream cone and watching the ocean. Bet that was relaxing.

I did know about the elephant ears. Tarzan used to be one of my favorites when I was a kid. :)

Have A Great Day Everyone!

Good Day XP,
No, it doesn't happen often, at least the light headedness doesn't. BP was just as low this morning but I felt fine. I haven't taken it since, too busy.

Done with busy now and may get to my book now that walking is done. Had a lot to take care of from shopping, always do.

Was so nice when I drove home that I decided to go to the beach to read. Change of plans when it clouded up. Went to the beach and bought an ice cream, first in months, and sat in my car and ate it. Then home, and busy ever since.

Hope your day went well and will continue to go well on Wednesday.

#7 Elephant ears signify species.

Two elephant species have been recognized in the Animal Kingdom: Asian and African. Besides originating from different parts of the world, one way to distinguish between the two is to take a closer look at the size of their ears. African elephants have larger ears that are shaped like their native continent. Meanwhile, Asian elephants’ ears are smaller because they don’t have to battle the heat like their African counterparts (elephants can flap their ears to cool off).

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Good afternoon, EXPAPERMAKER! I agree, I mean I've been in charge of the store during the middle of the day. Glad you like the blinds!

Today’s Picture:
Inside View

I had a productive day off yesterday since I was able to do some studying for my Info Systems Final. I also made dinner (shrimp pasta) for Mom and me. In the evening, Mom and I went around town to check out the Christmas lights (snapped some pics and will share my favorite ones). So far today, I’ve been doing more studying for my Info Systems Final.

Hi XP

Checkup went ok getting my placard in 2 weeks. Skipped the gym this morning. Just didn't feel like it. Getting lazy again. Every time I go to the Doc I get lazy the next day. I should be Doc & test free till January 2015 I hope.

Good morning, XP,

Yup! Happy feet! :)

The PT guy never showed up at Mom's nor did he call. We'll see if the same thing happens on the next scheduled visit (Wednesday). If it does, I will mention it to the orthopedic doctor, who we go to Monday, and see what he says.

This morning I'm taking Mom to WM (she insisted); it'll be the first time I've taken her out anywhere since the last hospital visit. I'll be honest; I am kinda nervous about this today, but we'll see how it goes. I have a few places to stop on the way home, one being the post office again. Couldn't get the stamps I needed yesterday (though I did mail some letters) b/c the place was PACKED! Hoping for a better visit today.

Have a great day!

Hiya Claudie, Don, iceeman99, Justin, and Dr. T. Thanks for dropping by.

Claudie - Thank you. Sounds like you and your happy feet skipped right through the errands yesterday. :)

Glad to hear your mom is doing well and has a positive attitude. That always helps. Hope the PT guy helps her and tells her when he will be coming. ???

Hope today is good one for you.

Don - Thank you. Glad to see you did go to the gym again even if it was just for a little while. Every little bit helps.

Raining here this morning and possibly turning to snow showers tonight and tomorrow. Going to get colder again.

Hope the tuneup went well and you got what you needed for the handicap placard.

Hope you have a really nice day.

Justin - Thank you. A couple of busy shifts for you it sounds like. That's great that they are going to test you with the store closing. I'm quite sure you can handle it. You've done just about everything else. :)

Good to see you were able to work with Mother Jan again.

Looks like nice blinds. Wood pattern I see. Good close up. :)

Hope everything goes smoothly for you today. Enjoy yourself.

Dr. T - Thank you. That was really nice of you to bake that cake and take it to them. Glad to hear they are doing well.

Lightheaded doesn't sound real good. Hope that doesn't happen often.

Didn't know that about the black and brown bears. I have seen brown black bears and wondered why they called them that.

Have A Great Day Everyone!

P.S. Lighting hope all is going well. Take care.

Good Day XP,
That sounds like quite the pizza you had. Wouldn't be for me, but I'm sure you enjoyed it.

We walked even though it was dripping. May not happen again for awhile so I wanted to go. I missed my first 2 miles here this morning. Felt light headed, took bp and way down so no circuit walking, but I did bake a pineapple upside down cake for the fellow who returned from the hospital from having cancer surgery. He has no food restrictions. Felt better so took it down. He is doing well, and his wife seemed really good for all she has been through.

Now, it's dishes and then I shall attempt to finish my book.

#6 Brown bears can be black and vice versa.

Don’t be fooled by the color of the coat! Despite their names, black and brown bears come in many different shades, often depending on the range and region of the subspecies. The best way to tell them apart would be to have one chase after you in the wild. If it follows you up a tree, you’ve got a black bear on your tail. If it just knocks the tree over, it’s a brown bear. (We seriously don’t recommend trying this.)

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

I worked a couple of shifts at Al’s since my last visit. I also visited Grandma, caught up on some sleep, and finished my Christmas shopping. Found out from the Manager that within the next couple of weeks, I’ll be closing the store for the first time!

Good morning, XP,

Yeah, another loss for the Falcons. Oh, well, the season's almost over.

Today starts a coupla of really busy weeks for me. I'll be going to the nail salon in a while, and then after that, a short stop to see Mom to drop off some papers she needs to fill out. Then I need to make 2 extra stops on the way home, including a stop at the post office to buy some stamps (for my Christmas cards). I hope I won't have a really long wait there; I saw on the news that today could be one really busy day at the post office as people really get into sending their packages. We shall see.

Have a great day!

Hiya Claudie, Don, iceeman99, and Dr. T. Thanks for dropping by.

Claudie - Thank you. Sorry about the Falcons again. I didn't see any of the game or even highlights here, just the score. I'm sure you had a good time but it would have been better with a win.

Hope today is good one for you. :)

Don - Thank you. Still dry here but no sun either, just gray. Gloomy and fairly warm for December. Supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow so they say.

Hope you have a really nice day.

Dr. T - Thank you. That would be a good idea having them leave him for short periods at your place so he can get used to it happening. Better for him and for you.

We had a carnivore special pizza yesterday. Italian sausage, bacon, hamburger, ham and pepperoni with three cheeses. It was good. :) Much better than the football games that were on here.

Beautiful pictures and it doesn't look like the aftermath of those storms. Cute pic of the baby goats. :)

Have A Great Day Everyone!

P.S. Lighting hope you didn't work too hard over the weekend. Take care.

Good Evening/Morning XP,

It was good to hear from C. tonight.

It wasn't exactly a snap. Gizmo has been here a number of times, but with his owners. He missed them which I knew, but I could really tell by his reaction when they came to pick him up.

Now that they live or here full time, Gizmo needs to come more often, but for shorter periods of time so he can become accustomed to staying without an owner.

Ni milk on sale this week. :-(

Pizza for you today or something else?

Today I'm sharing several recent photos with captions off of the county web site.

After our recent storm...it turned REALLY quiet....

I thought you said there was a big storm here.
Yep, yesterday! You reeeeealy missed it!!

What did one baby goat say to another baby goat?

Have a Magical Monday!
