We bbq'd steak on Sunday, even though we have two feet of snow on the ground. BUT it was finally just above freezing, for the first time since before Christmas, so it felt pretty balmy. The steak tasted incredible, too.

We've now had two days above freezing... maybe, fingers crossed!

Marie, one day at a time, one step at a time.

Hi, farmgirls! This is kinda off the wall. I know we have a mail art exchange named in memory of Portia whom we lost in a car crash.
We lost another farmgirl in a mudslide a few years ago. I was wondering if any of you remember her name. I feel so bad that I don't. I have been trying to remember for so long..my memory is just not what it used to be.

One can search the site for articles using keywords. Try that. I do remember reading that and I believe I sent a card.

Thanks, Marie. I guess I had forgotten we could do that.

Marie, I just tried that and made it through page 10. Do you know how I can continue the search from page 11 on?

Today is my mid-week day off. I am making a list of what I want and need to do. Top of the list is CASA training and quilted pillow covers for my niece's children who will visit in about a week. The weather is nice enough for planting peas and beets.
Fang is feeling better. He is back at work and is going to his banjo lesson. He's still has bouts of coughing.
Has anyone else noticed how many commercials there are for psoriasis, cancer, COPD, psoriatic arthritis, bladder problems, dry eye, depression, diabetes, and mens problems? Its worse than cereal commercials! I bet these drug companies have reps visiting doctors already, and now want sick folks to ask doctors to use their drugs too. It also says something about the targeted audience of the tv shows that Fang watches.

Most of those medications are frivolous. I saw one for diabetes once that made one vulnerable to infections. Not for me. The simpler the better.

That mud slide in Washington State, I think it was, sounded horrific. I am sad to realize that one of our own died in it. What a terrible death.

This was taken about 7:30 this morning in the west as the sun rose. It was like a red slash above the clouds. Today was also about 60 degrees.

Judith, You're welcome. Hope that helped you.

There has been some pretty nasty weather out there. I hope none of you are in the path of any of that.

We went yesterday to get our oil changed in our car and we came home with a brand new car. Only 14 miles on it. Beautiful!!!! Now when we go home to visit, we will e going in style. Trying to get used to all the bells and whistles in it. I thought our car insurance was going to skyrocket, but it will only go up about $100.00 a year. That is because of all the safety features and anti theft protection on it. You cannot open up the gas flap unless the car is unlocked. It has the keyless start button. 3 rows of seats that fold so we can sleep in there when we travel. Lots of room for craft shows.

More later, Have a great evening,

Jan

Jan, that's awesome!

I've been doing some custom sewing, spring cleaning, and binge-watching "BorderTown" on Netflix. I love foreign crime/mystery dramas. (Already watched Hinterland, Shetland, Rosemary and Thyme, and Broadchurch.)

The snow is melting, slowly but surely. Can't wait to get out in the garden.

Brandy Ward is the farmgirl who perished in the Oso Mudslide on March 22 2014. It's hard to believe 5 years has gone by already.....I just saw an article in the newspaper this week about a memorial art sculpture being installed in honor of those who died that represents the community mailbox cluster where Brandy and her fellow neighbors used to gather.

Cheers! ~ Marilyn

Good Morning ladies. I don't know why I have never joined in this conversation before, I certainly Qualify, and my aches and pains remind me of that. How fun for you Jan, a new car. I paid mine off last year and have been debating if I want a new one or not. Husband says trade at low mileage for a better deal, but when just the grocery run is 75 miles round trip and Doctor appt. are 140 low mileage doesn't happen around here. Our snow is slowly melting and I am starting to see some bare patches of ground. I need to do a bit of Easter sewing and finish my spring cleaning as well. Ann, I haven't heard of Shetland on Netflix, is it good? Have a great day.

Shetland is very good, if you enjoy UK mystery/crime drama. It takes place on the Shetland Islands off Scotland. There are three seasons.

I deep-cleaned the fridge today, and then prepped all the new veggies/fruit from shopping this morning. This afternoon, kid-proofing the house as we'll be babysitting three granddaughters here for the weekend. (10 years old, 3 years old, and 8 months old.)

A new store is opening tomorrow in Brooksville KY. It will sell kids and ladies clothes, accessories and home decor pieces. I work at the local paper, so when I saw them cleaning the store window I had to talk to them. The owner said she forgot to tell us she was opening. Honestly? Brooksville has a thrift shop and a dollar general, so having another clothing store is a big deal.

Missed church to take our Teenie Weenie to the emergency vet. She was barfing and had icky poops and wasn't eating. Vet did tests and gave her hydration & meds. She's doing better.

Poor Teenie!

I probably didn't say it here. We had to say goodbye to our Mitzi. She couldn't stand on one of her back legs and we had to carry her around. She is buried out in Wisconsin at our parents' pet cemetary.

It has snowed here and it has not started to melt.

Our pets usually go to Town and Country Vet, but because it was the weekend I had to drive to Wilder, near Cincinnati to the emergency vet.

Poor Marie, I know you have other pets buried there. I hope Lowell is handling the loss well.

We are doing okay. Bob the Kat misses his Mitzi.

What to do on a cold cloudy day? Make caramel corn! I use a toffee recipe, pour it over a panful of air popped popcorn, then bake at 350 for 10 minutes to dry it. When it is cooled its a tasty snack.

Our community had a tragedy last weekend. A boy died at an after-prom party. There are rumors and tidbits going around, but it is known that too much alcohol was involved. It was hard for me to write the article about the prom, knowing what would happen later. He also rode on my husband's school bus route and was a good kid. Now instead of graduation, we'll go to his funeral and his senior picture is on his obit.
