  1. Wow, Jeepers, are you sure you aren't trying to clean out my house? My small bedroom is partly a pantry. I have shelving units in there to hold my food I have canned. Then there is that closet that is full of food. But is starting to dwindle down a bit. I took a lot of canned goods, flour and other things to the church food pantry. When all the kids were living here and they were short on money, they always shopped at my house for food. But now they have spread out to other states with only one still here for about a year longer. She graduates college in Dec. and then in April of next year to
  2. The last time the poles reversed was about 42,000 years ago. They say ancient trees could tell when the precise time the poles flipped and is how they knew it was 42,000 years ago. Read it on NPR.org. Interesting read.
  3. Gas prices here are up to $2.89. I heard there is a gas station in Richmond that is price gouging at $7.00 a gal. for regular unleaded. Also read that that is why they suddenly decided about not having to wear mask so as to cover up the price gouging. I don't think they can cover that up. People can see it going on. But it has not been on the news that I have heard of yet. Or I missed it.
  4. Miki, you might be right. I know a wood fence would be high price, don't know how the plastic ones have risen in price. Something I need to check on. Though I haven't seen that neighbor walking up my way now in 2 days. When I looked down toward his house when I was watering the flowers this evening, it looks like they are having another one of their secret meetings. They close up the blinds and everything when they have one. Can't say if it is church related or something else. They have had a Thank You Jesus sign in their yard for a couple of years. Nothing wrong with the sign but why do they
  5. Well back on the subject of what I have been doing. I didn't go to church today as I was so sore this morning when I got up from planting 72 flowers all the way around the boarder of my flower beds, or I should say now garden as the flower beds around the house is like having a raised garden bed. My shoulders are still hurting and I am so tired. My house is still one big mess. I took the other bookcase out of hall and that is now sitting in my bedroom as DD and SIL were coming down to get the desk, their fish tank and other stuff out of here and I had to move the bookcase out of the hallway t
  6. euphrasyne, It is a known fact that in a death of a spouse, never to make rash decisions about anything. I have no plans to sell my house for at least 2 years. Yes it is a good time to sell but not to buy right now anyway. I have one neighbor that is a nosy person. She is the one that used to work real estate and her sister in law was the mayor of Suffolk and she and her husband are in real estate. So the neighbor told me when and not if I sell my house she is going to buy it. I know that scam all to well. She will try to get me to sell on the cheap and then flip it to make a profit. She bar
  7. Right now from what I remember is that his wife, if they really got married as they did at first move in together. So I am thinking they did get married. This guy looks to be in maybe his early 50's. She is older. She sold her house in another city to her son. I do not know if she at that time was devoiced or her Dh passed away. But she moved here in my neighborhood. She always kept to herself. When she would walk around the block, if I was outside I would say hello to her and she would just turn her head the other way and not speak. So I never said anything to her after a while of saying h
  8. Wow, I just started to read some of what I missed and this is bad. I have been across that bridge in clearwater when I went to visit my younger sister when she lived there several years ago. They have been working on the bridges around here and they are in process of rebuilding and adding another bridge beside the old Churchland bridge. I had not heard about all this with the barges until I read this. That is a bad break in that bridge. And a lot of headaches. I think I need to catch up on the news as well.
  9. Mt. Rider, I am still praying for your parents. Take care and you can join me in trying to catch up on everything. Though It is going to be a lot of reading for me to catch up. I have missed a lot. Haven't had a chance to start reading the older post yet, but will get to it as time permits. Hope everyone is doing well. I know with spring everyone is busy with gardens. I think I have a neighbor problem and not sure how to take him yet. This guy that lives down the street that I don't know him or his wife about 3 years ago for some reason started taking my trashcans in for us. Dh w
  10. Thank you Jeepers and to all that has prayed for me and kept me in your thoughts. It means a lot to me.
  11. Love the pics Annarchy. I would love to go visit that place some day. It has been a while since I have been on. Ii am doing a bit better with good days and bad days as well as been very busy trying to get things done around house. I am very much trying to down size the house and did away with my office which is also one of the bedrooms. I am trying to turn it into a guest bedroom with 4 grand children living on west coast and daughter and son in law in NC. And another granddaughter leaving for SC next year for medical school. They all come here to stay so I need the bedrooms to b
  12. Momo, it has been a while since I have been on here myself and just finding out about your husband. I am so sorry for your loss and I know very well what you are going though as I lost my husband in Feb. this year. If you want to chat just message me and we can chat a bit. Ii am still having hard times but also some good days. it's not easy but just remember all the good times you and he had. my Dh was also much older than me and we did everything together. Remember all the good times and keep him in your heart. I will get better over time, but this first year will be the hardest. But time
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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
