Great weekend with big excuses to just snack all day. I've got to decide what to prepare.:)

It isn't windy right now, but this afternoon the winds should blow. Our high is predicted to be 68F and no warmer because of the wind.

I went to the library the other day and just kind of grabbed some books. They are by Debbie Macomber so they are kind of romance and kind of not. They are interesting but I can read an entire book in a couple of hours.

It is still very cold up north and since we have had a couple of weeks in the upper 60s or low 70s, it seems kind of odd. Luckily, the cold waves have not reached this far south since December. I always wonder if the cold will come down here, but we have been lucky.

My large dog Casey can't get up on the sofas any longer so Floyd went and bought her a big doggie pillow, 40" x 50" and really soft and fluffy, she will love it. Casey sleeps on the floor beside my bed these days. We are both getting pretty old and I sense that she knows it. It amazes me how perceptive my dogs are. I think that is because we are with them 24/7. The seem to read our minds. Really, they are such a comfort to us, I don't know what we would do without our canine buddies.

All is well in Deming, NM. Talk with you all later.

We hooked up to Vonage and we love it. Our phone service is nice and clear and loud. Our old connection was faulty and our phone had static and was difficult to hear. You can't imagine the improvement.

We went to a Chinese Restaurant for lunch and it was very tasty.

FWIW, today is the National Day of the Squirrel. What do you think??, lol.

An amazing day!

The TV has been on all day, we have been watching the Inaugural activities. We have really enjoyed all the festivities. I think we had the best view right here at home where it was warm and comfy. Now I am watching the Balls, imagine having to go to 10 different places!! I know Obama will get busy tomorrow and begin work. So much to do. We just wish him all the best. He knows what he wants and he has a history of accomplishing his tasks.

Tomorrow Floyd has a doctor's appointment and then we are going out for lunch to celebrate our Anniversary. Then I need to hook my phone up to Vonage. It is a good deal, Vonage! 24.99 per month with just over $3.00 in taxes. My Qwest phone bill has over $10.00 in taxes of every which kind.

Gosh, I ordered a gift basket for baby Owen and it never arrived. I know I was notified that it was shipped on the 7th and my bank account was debited, so that is another thing I must do tomorrow, call them and find out what happened.

Hope everyone is as happy as I am with our new president. Talk with you later.

nice mild weather

We are in the upper 60s for most of the week, except for Thursday when it just might cool enough for us to have showers. Stewart has completed his move to Tucson and is happy there. He is surprised at some things. Qwest is the phone company, but do not provide high speed internet in Tucson. How crazy is that?? He can use Cox Cable for his high speed internet, but since the phone company wants 2 weeks to schedule, he may not have phone service/internet until February 2nd.

They are at least 10 degrees warmer than us with a high of 77 today. We see the Arizona Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl, Kurt Warner is still going strong.

January 12th

What's new?? Well, for one thing I have another adorable great-grandson. His name is Owen and he is just over one week old. My other new great-grandson is nearly three months old and his name is Austin. How cool, two new babies. Their pictures are on Facebook and if you haven't joined, I would love to see you there.

This month is nearly half over and am I very glad. Winter is not for me! Next month begins Spring in our neck of the sand, lol.
Just about my bedtime, talk with you later.

January, 2009

I love that it is 2009 because last year was not a very good year by anyone's standards. We have a brand new great-grandson, Owen, who is an adorable,and I think he will probably have a normal lifespan of 100 years. Babies born this year should expect to live to 100 if nothing interferes, like accidents. It is comforting to know that even as one ages, life continues.

We have a lovely sunny day today and we should have a good week weather wise. In the 60s except for Sun. & Mon. when it will be in the 50s, then back to 60s. The best thing about January, is that Spring arrives in this part of the world in February, lol. That is when the cottonwoods start greening up.

I am glad that the holidays are over even though I did enjoy them. Now back to my normal (dull) daily routines. Today I am doing laundry. pretty routine all right, lol. Next week I can start my library trips again.

No more holidays, but there is the Inauguration, we will enjoy watching that on TV. That's about the extent of our involvement. Wishing Obama the best of luck.
