Happy birthday to me

I became a Medicare patient today.  Well, not actually a patient, but 65 years ago today, my grandma wrote in her daily diary that they got 35 eggs and Glennie  (my mom) had given birth to a baby girl.  That was it...not even a line on how cute I was or anything.  65...who'd a thought.
Friends took me to lunch yesterday and my BFF and I went to Applebee's for lunch today.  I have coupons for free tacos and free pizza, plus two free dinners in my email in box.  Finally pays to get old.  Ha ha

Pretty pictures from Hawaii

No, I'm not in Hawaii, but my sister is and she sent me this stunning picture of a hibiscus yesterday.  She also said it was 80 degrees.   Sigh.

Sunny Saturday

Our mountain, she is enjoying this cold weather.  I am so ready for spring, and it's a long ways off yet.

This is the time of year when the swans come through on migration. We were on our way home from getting groceries and The Shepherd had seen them in this field the day before so he took a chance that they would still be there.   This is the closest I've ever seen them.   They are so beautiful.  .

Find a penny..

Leave a penny.
My sister finds coins - everywhere. Nickles, dimes   but mostly pennies.  We call them Angel Pennies, from her spiritual cheerleaders. 
And she leaves coins for others to find...good karma we decided.  I keep telling her that she needs to start buying Lottery tickets. 
This penny was on the ground by my car at home.  Don't know how it got there, I'm pretty careful with my pennies - maybe I have spiritual cheerleaders too.
Hope you have a safe and happy new year!

Catermonday report

Gracie here today with a little report for you. 

Well it snowed a WHOLE lot last night.  Clear up to my elbows!!!  So, I'm just hanging out with mummy in bed (she keeps making noises about getting up but I don't see any movement there). Ha ha...

I think it has stopped snowing though and The Shepherd has gone out to check on the sheepies. Mummy says it is supposed to stay cold for a week in the high 20s (what ever that means) brrrr. Maybe I'll figure out how that box of sand works...

Snow day

 I didn't realize it had been such a long time since I posted - Holy cow, Thanksgiving?  Part of the issue is that I've gone back to work - at the office.  4-5 hours a day - kicks my butt some days, but I'll get through it, sooner or later. 

It has snowed the last couple days here.  Self imposed exile here.  Can't afford another fall.  Ever...
