What Sandra Makes…

I ordered this tee from Sandra and it’s so cute (even on an old broad like me!)  I ordered two scarves, also, and I’ll show you them when they arrive.

Sandra sells through Redbubble and the ordering and delivery were super easy. You should check out her blog!

It’s Football Sunday…

I remembered this post from last year as I find myself alone in the family room, reading and watching the NFL playoff game.  So true…


Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…

A Favor to Ask of You…

I have a huge favor to ask of you.  I have two friends who are in dire need of prayers, good wishes, good energy, whatever you call it in your life.  I know how you all helped me get through bad times last year and if every person who reads my blog sends one small message out into the universe, perhaps it will help.

One of my dear friends has recently begun immunotherapy for colon cancer.  We are hopeful that these new treatments will have great success.  She is the nicest person you’d ever want to meet.  She’s always there for friends and neighbors, driving people to appointments, visiting them, doing what she can to help.  And now I so want to help her.  I won’t print her name because I don’t want to invade her privacy in any way, but I know the messages will get through.

The other person who needs our thoughts and prayers is the husband of a former neighbor of mine.  He just found out recently he has a malignant tumor on his spine and it’s causing him a great deal of pain.  He had to leave his job last fall and takes meds pretty much 24/7 to cope with the unrelenting discomfort.  He will be undergoing a stress test soon before chemo and/or radiation can begin.  I don’t know him well, but his wife is the dearest, sweetest person you’d ever want to meet and I know that if she chose him to marry, he has to be a wonderful guy.

The first time I met my former neighbor, she was walking down our block with her children who were quite young at the time.  They were walking to the movie theater which is several blocks from our house.  Her little boy, who was about four or five, was complaining he didn’t want to walk.  And I heard her say, “Well, you don’t have to walk!  You can hop or you can skip or you can jump!”  I really thought I would hate her, lol, but it turns out she was a preschool teacher and I found over the years that not only is she sweet, she’s also fun and funny…

So, please, if you have a moment to send prayers, thoughts, energy, vibes, whatever you are comfortable with for my friends, I would be so appreciative.

Yikes…

It’s been super cold here in the Midwest (high of ten degrees today, low of 12 below last night) but we’re expecting warm ups by this weekend and maybe even 40 degrees one or two days next week!  Hallelujah!   We have some snow, but only three or four inches.  And the sun is shining brightly, hence the really, really cold temps.  When it hits above freezing I may attempt to clear the driveway, but really, if I can drive over the snow, does it matter?

But the East Coast was hit with a “bomb cyclone” recently, with more than a foot of snow in many places and now dropping temps.  Is that even a real term or just something the weather people made up?   (Okay, I looked it up and yes, it’s a real meteorological term so if you want to know what brings the snow and cold, you can look it up online, too, 😉 )  To all my East Coast friends and family, please stay safe and warm!  Hopefully we will get through January and February here in the States and on to better weather…
