I was almost in tears and FINALLY remembered about pickle juice! What a God-send!

Happy Saturday everyone!!! I have been cooking away all day. My sister and her family are coming for dinner. I took a day off of tracking my food and exercise and may have eaten a few too many chocolates... shh! Dont' tell!

I scored some Christmas goodies at CVS today for 75% off... some wrapping paper, some lights, and some Santa hats!!

Good afternoon, everyone. Just wanted to stop in quick, so you know that all is well, well sort of...ha.

I have caught the nasty bug that most of America seems to have. This cold is really running me down. I have no energy what-so-ever. I am thankful that it is my weekend off and DH is here to me take care of the kids. I just feel like I've been hit by a bus.

I know I've missed a lot on here. If I've missed anything super important, someone please PM or message me on Facebook. It would be greatly appreciated. I will try to stop back later, but I can't promise anything! Who knows how I will feel then!

Miss all of you. God Bless and thinking and praying for each an everyone of you!

You know something, your right!

With the colors turning a reddish hue and also grainey, then I got to thinking about things a bit, back then, when my son was born, 1992, my father-in-law had a old style vhs camera (the one whith the tape inside it). I would surmize then, (since he's an "el cheapo", a nice guy, but cheap) he most likely used vhs tapes that he had recorded on, over and over again that he most likely bought in the 80's....

I'm glad I decided to do this now, and discovered this, before we lost any movies of my son as a baby. This is a point made, where all things are meant to be for some reason or another, don't you agree....

Oh, by the way, the first vhs tape transfer - a six hour process! I got done at 3 am last night; another lesson learned to start earlier in the day... lol

Are you having a good Saturday? We're heading out for a walk soon, and are thinking of having a British film show downstairs tonight. We have some DVDs of British films that we haven't seen yet. I could brew up some tea and have a jolly old time!

Ouch! I empathize. I've had a few so bad that I couldn't straighten my leg enough to walk. I've jumped out of bed yelling a few times with those things. The pickle juice is a good tip. Neither of us eats pickles, but it might be worth buying a jar just to keep the juice handy! Happily, I haven't been bothered with them recently.

Snow squall watch for
Stratford issued

Strong potential for local snow squalls tonight and Sunday.

Cold strong westerly winds gusting to 80 or 90 km/h moving over the Great Lakes tonight will very likely generate local snow squalls with visibilities reduced to less than 250 metres in snow and blowing snow.

This is the 3rd one we have had this year and still have little to no snow to show for it. So we will just have to wait and see what this one produces!
