  1. Wow! Fishing trips are great and even better when you catch something other than logs. It is also so relaxing. I haven't been fishing in at least 3 years. Fishing poles might be calling my name. Annarchy, glad to know your mom is doing better. Love the ducks, I think they are waiting for more food. My neighbor called me over her house this afternoon. She found a baby rabbit. She had it in a cooler for the time being because of the dogs. Hoping she will call someone to take it and take care of it till it can be released. Still going through all the food in house
  2. Last I checked here a few days ago, gas was 2.69. Over where our church is it was 2.63. Problem is. it is in two totally different directions. So will wait till Sunday to fill up again.
  3. Prayers going out for your mom to be better and she gets to the cardio doc. soon. Mt. Rider glad to know you are doing better also. It is 12:45 here and I am wide awake. Been working on the food still. getting more boxed food together to take to church. I am only keeping so much and the rest goes. Know way one person can eat all that and now that daughter is in N. Carolina and Grandson has moved to Washington to live with his sister and her husband. They won't be raiding my pantry anymore. So no need to keep all that food. And since our church is feeding at least 40 to 45
  4. Hello Paulene. I think just doing the squares would be easier for me with my arthritic hands. I want to hopefully get enough out of them to make a quilt for each of the grandchildren and one for my daughter as well. And for me if I can get enough material out of them. He had at least 40 pair of jeans if not more. I had packed up all the ones he had when he lost all that weight and they are still in shed stored away. So hoping to get a few quilts out of them. Jeepers I think I best be getting to that fabric shop. I will need the cross stitch thread for them and I will need more thread f
  5. I like that quilt. Very pretty. Dh had lots of jeans, so I think I just might make a jean quilt with them. I was thinking using those clothes for quilts as if there is ever an EMP I could keep warm. I think they would be great for that. Though the one I want to make for the memory quilt will be from his tea shirts. He had a lot of the fishing ones and of course we can't leave out star wars. He wore all those shirts and liked them a lot. So the memory quilt will be made from that. I want to fix that one to hang on wall. The rest I can use on beds. I am going to just pack up everything till I
  6. Kappy glad you all made it through and got nothing but rain. Hope everyone else is doing better and that Mothers brother is now much better. Took a trunk and backseat of food to the church this morning. It was a lot of food. I still have boxed food to go through and pack up to send. What I took this morning was mostly canned goods. I would never have been able to eat all that. I did keep 12 cans of everything and I do have my foods that I canned so doing the way I did it will keep me out of the stores for at least 3 months. Going to head out to cemetery in the mornin
  7. I don't have any little ones anymore. My youngest is 19 years old. Don't see any great grandkids in the near future yet. But keep hoping.
  8. euphrasyne, I agree with that. Only buy what you know you will use as the rest is just a waste. Right now I am going through a lot of food. Not that we didn't eat it, but because it is just me now and I will never eat all of it before it would be so far out of date, i would have to trash it. So I am going to have a car load to carry to the church tomorrow. Now that the kids have moved away, they won't be here to raid my pantry's like they used to. So not keeping it. As for clothes, I have bought socks and underwear before the price went way up and the shortages have already starte
  9. Yes Kappy, what Jeepers said. We have been worried about you guys. Glad to know you are both doing ok. Mt. Rider still keeping you and family in prayer. Hope things are better. Jeepers praying for those headaches to stop. I know they are no fun. I get them if I turn my neck to much or lay wrong and get my neck hurting. Grandson got to Washington state Sat. afternoon and went job hunting today and landed a job. That was fast. So far he seems to love it there. Lots to do. Hiking, paddleboards. And lots of other things. His sister will keep him very busy as she also
  10. Went to sunrise service this morning and then back again for our 10 am service. It was great. Came home and went to the cemetery to check out the plack. Everything was good. They just have it sitting on ground and will be setting it in tomorrow. I got the Easter flowers on the graveside. Will be going back tomorrow to make sure they have everything set right. Granddaughter might be going with me this time. She made a coconut cake from scratch. First time and it turned out really good. She's becoming a great little cook. Grandson is now in Washington state and has called me several tim
  11. From what I understand, cotton is going up. which means anyone that loves flannel is also going to pay a heavy price for it. I need to get to JoAnn fabrics and have not been able to get there yet. Missed one good sale, don't want to mill another. Plastic has started going way up. I went to both Low's and home depot and the plastic containers were 49.00. I am not going to pay that for a plastic container. So I need to go to Wal mart and general dollar store. I bought some from general dollar last time and the were 13.00. they are not as heavy as the others, but for what I want, they will
  12. I agree. Use the sheets for dehydrators. Also Lem's sell them as well. I have a 9 tray dehydrator. And I have those sheets just for that. Food grade safe.
  13. Mother I am so sorry to hear about your brother. Keeping him in . I do agree that everyone is done with this corvid mess and wants to go back to living again in a normal way. But this virus is far from over. If it keeps mutating like they were saying, I am starting to wonder if the vaccine will work on these new strains. I have not gotten the vaccine as I have an autoimmune disease and I need to see the doctor first anyway. But I really don't think I am going to get it. To early yet to see how this will effect people in the long run. I do wear a mask when I go to stores an
  14. Well we didn't get any snow but we were under freeze warnings for 2 nights. Glad I didn't get my veggies planted yet. Thinking I will wait a bit before I get them planted. Want to make sure we are no longer going to have frost and freezing weather. Has anyone heard from Kappy?
  15. Mt. Rider, glad the horse back riding helped you. May you continue to get better with each time you go riding. Today I have done nothing but watch Biblical movies on TV all day. Dh and i always watched there movies through out the year, but mostly during the Easter holidays. So I am keeping that tradition. I love to watch those movies anyway, and it is something Dh and I always did. I will be going to the sunrise service at 7 am and then for the regular service at 10 am. Then going to head to the cemetery as the plack has been put down and I need to make sure it is right. And I
  16. Where I have been living now for the past 36 years, We were more country than we are now. Most of the farmland has been sold off and more and more apts. have been built. We are now more urban than country. We have so many more stores now than when I first moved here. Used to be only a farmers market and a gas station with one restaurant. Now we have many different types of stores, grocery stores, two 7-elevens across from each other. With apts. over top of stores across the street from the farm market. Growing like crazy. I have about an acre of land with the house on it. So plenty o
  17. Went to store this morning to get a few things for dinner tomorrow night. G.daughter and boyfriend is coming over. My turn to cook. Picked up a lot of fresh veggies and fruit. Came home and worked on getting the kitchen cabinets cleaned out. Still got some more to clean out but at least I am half way there. I am slow at it these days. Got the fish tank cleaned and looking much better now. Water is clear again. Though I will be glad when the kids take it home with them. Hopefully week after this week. Grandson heads to Washington state early Sat. morning. Hope he does better there.
  18. Speaking of deep freeze. We are going to get lake bay effect snow and freezing weather next 2 days. Glad I haven't planted the garden yet. Texted g'daughter to bring her tomoato plants in off the deck. This is her first time growing tomatoes. Don't want her to loose them now. They are doing good.
  19. Wow! That is bad. hot lava flowing like a fast river.
  20. That is great Mt. Rider. Horse riding is also fun. Two of my granddaughters worked at a horse farm while they were in school and took riding lessons. They loved it. Got a call from my friend from church this morning. She is now in rehab. She fractured her back. Said she just up and fell backward. Also hit her head and messed her leg up some, but that is doing a bit better. She said they have a cage around her now. So it must be rather bad. She said they are saying it will take 2 to 8 weeks for rehab. And then home therapy more than likely. That is if they let her go back home.
  21. Wow! that was neat. Never seen them going up the steps before either. i used to play with them but like Jeepers said maybe lined up about 12 or so. That really brings back some old memories.
  22. Another busy day. Went to cemetery this morning to put flowers on grave. On the way there were at least 20 to 25 police cars everywhere before I got to cemetery. Don't know what was going on but they all had their lights going. Part of the street and a neighborhood was blocked off. No stores were in that section, so not a robbery, unless it was a home invasion. Hope not. Got through that and further down was anther police car. Lights on and she was just standing there. Got to cemetery and there was a funeral going on right near where Dh is buried. It was to close to him for me to just pa
  23. I think I quoted about how I came up with the name Little sister. But I will just tell it here. I have a friend in Sunday school that always calls me her little sister. We are not sisters but good friends. We also worked in the food ministry with her and her husband. She would tell everyone that I was her little sister. So the name stuck. So that is how I came up with the name Littlesister. Guess I just got so used to being called little sister that I decided to use that name here. And yes haven't heard from Kappy. So Kappy, please check in as soon as you can so we will know y
  24. Jeepers, I am having the same problem. Seems every time I get one thing like I want it, something else happens. Then when I find things and get it where I want, windows does another update and messes things up again. And yes a new computer is on my down the road list. I ordered the other grill parts I need. I am going to home depot tomorrow morning and then to the cemetery to take flowers for Easter. Will still be going back on Sunday as I usually go every Sunday. But I want to get the flowers on the grave side as there are none there right now. Took the old ones that were real flowers off a
  25. No, I chose my name as one of my Sunday school ladies always calls me her little sister. We are not real sisters, just friends. But that stuck and she tells everyone that I am her little sister. So the name Littlesister. Guess it really stuck.
