Week # 2

Just like I promised I’m baaaaaaaaaaaack!!   Let see since I last visited with you all I turned another year older!!! Yikes. Time flies after 50 and I’m way over on the other side of 50!!!  Actually I turned 62 last Saturday and the reason I’m telling my age is I wanted you to know I applied for my Social Security,   I should receive my first check in February.  How I feel about this I don’t know?  My job for the last year has been one day a week and that was to just to keep my desk cleared.,  I told my boss I would help him get back on his feet and hang with him until the end of April maybe May and then I’m coming home for good.  How do I feel about this I don’t know, I have worked since I was 15 and then just stop and not have to worry about no one but myself and hubby.  Can I give up that paycheck, the independence I feel when I deposit my own paycheck, A little scary but I think I will come to be ok with it.  Maybe I will get to use that camper I bought 5 years ago and have only used 3 times!!!
 
Now lets talk snow not. All last week it snowed everyday.  It was really pretty falling but after a week enough is enough. The puppies really liked it, I would let them outside to do their business and they would put those muzzles down and become little snow plows and covered in snow with it freezing to their fur.   Snow I can take with them but this deer chasing they are doing is driving me up a wall.  We have a lot of deer coming in the yard , since there is nothing in the woods for them to eat , but I always check before I turn them out, but somehow I always miss seeing them and when I turn them out off they go with white tails straight up in the air and the two Schnauzers behind them.  I call, push the shock collar, but by the time I realize  they are out of range for the collars they are over the hill.  Me I panic thinking they will not come back to me so I stand there calling and by now all of the dogs are barking in the neighborhood and neighbors are coming out on the porch to see what all the barking and yelling is about!!!   So far they have come back to me, but I still panic when they take off.
 
Up date on Hayden, he is growing like a week and is all boy.  Two days ago he was at his dad’s parents and was running and trip and fell and hit the bookcase corner and busted his head open.  His Grandmother put a butterfly bandage on it and they took him to the hospital  but they said the bandage had sealed it back and they didn’t put stitiches in .  Here is a picture of his boo boo.  It just broke my heart to see him with this cut and I just kissed and kissed him.  He is about to have a baby brother anyday now.  So I guess another reason to retire so I can help my grand daughter with both of her babies!!! 
  When he’s not bumping his head he is trying to help me in the kitchen!! I open the fridge and asked him to shut the door and here is how it ended. LOL
 
I told you last week that my youngest daughter is in Florida, where they were having cold temps too.  She sent me pictures today where all the manateese had gathered around a power plant down there where the water was warm, she said they looked like rolled sauages. So many of them.  She and I talk via our video cams and she has to sit outside to get reception on her lap top and she had on her winter coat.  It’s still cold in Tampa too. 
 
To pass these hours being cooped up I’ve been crocheting scarfs for my grand daughters, friends, whoever can use a soft scarf around their necks .  I saw this scarf in a magazine and it sold for $78.00 and I loved the pattern but there was no way I was going to pay $78,00 so I found the pattern and made several and gave them as Christmas presents too.  Everyone loved them, and I didn’t pay $78,00 for them, they cost me about $5.00 each and I can make them in a day.   They are a circular scarf some call it a Mobius Scarf.  You can wear them with a sweater or wrap them twice around your neck, .  The grand daughters loved theirs. 
 
Oh, I almost forgot, my friend Jenny D and some of yours wanted me to tell you that she will be back on spaces soon. As you know she lost her mother and have been busy moving into her mothers house and dealing with all that involves . She also wanted me to tell you that she misses all of you and can’t wait to get back on spaces and visiting all of you.   She is a lovely person who has been though a lot, but she’s making it and can’t wait to visit you all. 
 
Well until next week, take care and stay warm.
Hugs,

    Poor Hayden\’s head. He looks sad in the photo. When my son was toddling he fell and hit the corner of the coffe table and we had to take him to the hospital for stiches. From that day forward I never had a coffee table again.Jenny is a very sweet lady and I will be glad to see her posting again.

    Ohh goodness Pat, I thought I had read all your current blogs but I guess I somehow missed this one. Poor lil Hayden, hope his boo-boo is all healed up by now. Ohh and congrats on the new Great grand baby. They are so precious aren\’t they! I was just thinking of you tonight, I hear on the news that back East they are having alot of snow. I hope you are doing alright. We got more snow 2 days ago, about 5 inches, but it is still on the ground and hasn\’t melted much. I\’m so ready for Spring and warmer weather. Well thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it. TAKE CARE…..Sunee 🙂

    Don\’t know how I missed this one, Pat. Hayden sure is all boy and that boo boo doesn\’t seem to have slowed him down. Just as I read this I looked over at Laura and my eyes lit on the scar she has on her knee from running down the hall at grandma\’s, tripping and catching the corner of the book shelves when she was 2. Frankie freaked but Mom and I got the first aid kit out and went to work. I was a USAF Reserve Pararescueman and Mom was a US Navy Hospital Corpsman. Laura was bandaged, up and running again before Frankie finished having her heart attack 🙂
