Wednesday, Wednesday

Hope everyone is well and if you have been in the path of the storms that you are handling it the best that one can.

I have been in such a slump and I just can't get going. I have things piling up around me and no energy to get on with it. I have goods thoughts in the middle of the nite that when I get up I won't sit too long in front of the TV and I will do this and that but, nope it does not happen. Enough already self.

One thing I do everyday without fail is fill my bird feeders. Boy it has been brutal for the birds. But I now have to take my large hopper feeder in at nite because a herd of deer (8 to 10) are destroying it. So the sucker :-) that I am, I now put out corn cobs and rice chex ceral (they love it) and carrots for the deer. It is hard for them as well. I think they appreciate it or I like to think they do!

Well not much else happening here. Oh yeah, new washer is great!!

Have a great day everyone.

Hello March

As I write this post snow once again is coming down at a pretty good rate here in Eastern Pennsylvania. I guess in like a Lion is holding true this year, let's hope the Lamb is not too far behind.

What do I like about March? Daylight Savings begins in a week, this is good for us because it gives Les a bit of freedom in driving. In the Winter he can't drive much past 3pm.

St.Patrick's Day, not Irish, but who isn't on that day, lol.

SPRING!!!!!!!!!!! Yay, woot, woot. I think everyone is ready this year.

Spring flowers, ahh I can smell them now.

And finally, Birthdays, in particular my BIRTHDAY at the end of the month. Thinking that I am going to make it a birthday month and do good things for myself all month long.

Have a great Sunday everyone.

Crazy Week

Hope everyone is well and staying warm if you are having the cold, cold weather that has been hanging around for way too long.

We started out having to clean up after yet another storm on Monday and boy it was a heavy snow. Thankfully we did not get the ice/freezing rain but we did get about 5 inches of heavy snow. We followed that up by having to wring out a washer full of wet clothing. Yes, after 27 years my washer has died. Les and I have been kidding with friends on fb that it could have held out for 30 years, but Nooo, lol. So yesterday and today we have been doing our homework online and looking at the big box stores. But, today we took a trip to a local Mom and Pop store to have a peek at what they had to offer. Well, I will not say they are less expensive, far from it but we are getting a Washer that is made in America (Wisconsin) with a three warranty. It will fit in the space that I have so no buying a dryer that I did not need to make the big box store washer work. It will be delivered on Friday of this week, they will haul away the old one and it comes with new hoses (again, unlike the big box store who insist you purchase them). So, what are we getting? A Speed Queen Washer. After seeing it in the store we came home measured and I called to see when we needed to come back and order it and guess what? I did it all on the phone, no running back to the store. Customer Service!!

Our work is not over yet, as we now need to get the standing water out of the old washer, this should be fun, Ha!!

Have a good evening and I will let you know how everything comes out in the wash (had to say it).

Friday Findings

It seemed to me that this week was very loooong. I an sure that the dreadful weather that many of us are experiencing had something to do with it. No plans for the weekend, just hunkering down for another snowy weekend, but I know Spring will be here soon enough. And to prove that, look closely and you can see daffodil sprouts. This was taken a little over a week ago on the South side of our home.

Mid-Week, Wednesday

Happy Wednesday Friends.

It is a very sunny day here is Eastern Pennsylvania. I did not make it out to the shop yesterday to poke around for inventory but it is on my list of things to do today. Got my workout yesterday with shoveling snow, clearing off the cars, etc. It was beautiful as well yesterday and the sun felt so good!

We are still on schedule for are appointment tomorrow with a possible auction client. It will feel good to get out and socialize a bit, have not felt like going to far from my recliner and blanket of late, lol.

Have a wonderful day!!

Fastnacht Day & Fat Tuesday

Happy Fastnacht Day & Fat Tuesday!

Well the weather has not changed, snow is very sparkley this time and right now it is 15 degrees, so I will stay put for a bit before I head outside to see what needs to be moved today.

I need to go and poke around in the inventory to see what to take into the shop this week, but we keep the heat at the minimum so the pipes don't freeze but it does make for a cold, cold building. But, it is necessary with the price of oil, we can't afford the house (IMPORTANT) and the outbuilding. Such is life :-(.

Have a good day my friends and if you can, do something fun!

Monday, Monday

We are in a holding pattern with our weather, cold, breezy (see that I used breezy, not windy), snow coming later tonite, hmm...sounds like a broken record.

But we must move along, washer in the back ground means it's a wash day, I try not to wash clothes on the weekend or at least not Sunday, would like to think that is my day of rest. For two people we sure do have lots of laundry, lol.

Later this week Les (hubby) and I have an appointment with a potential client who may want to send some of his treasures to auction, so I will let you know the outcome of that. We were happy to get that call, it proves that advertising no matter how small or big does work.

Have a good day, I am going outside around lunch when the Sun will be high in the sky to move some snow, wish me luck :-).

Happy Presidents' Day friends.
