wait a minute...how far up this mountain do you guys live?


Usually we only have to walk up the last 1/4 of a mile. It is a steep climb and when the road is covered in ice/snow, we have to walk in the woods. I enjoy it the wife doesn't. A lot of the snow is now gone so we were able to drive up last night.

Another too warm a day forecast for us. It was 27 when I left for work with a forecast high of 49.

Have a blessed Pines day everyone.

Made it to Wednesday! This week hasn't been so bad at the office, but it sounds like next week is going to be a tough one. A major campaign and some rough deadlines coming up, plus they may be moving some of our desks.

I'm keeping a worried eye on that ... I'll be concerned about getting home safely on Friday. Depending on how the timing develops, I'd be driving in the teeth of it. I don't mind going slow and being careful, but the other drivers out there ... I'd rather not be among them when the roads are slippery. Well, it's two days away yet. We'll see what develops.

It's the 35th anniversary of the Blizzard of 1978 today. I was still in school in Maryland at the time. It was good for a few days off, as I recall. And the snow was above my knees. We got an ice glaze on top of it that made walking very difficult---had to stomp on the ice to break it, then sink into knee-high snow. Mr. tells me that driving was prohibited in Massachusetts for days during the cleanup.

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

Another crazy day here at work, trying to get the quick renovation done, all while trying to keep up with my actual job. One thing's for sure; there are too many chiefs and too few indians like me.

I hope y'all have a great day!

girly i don't know how in the world you can cook like that when your sick but WOW it looks scrumptious!


oh yes, queen anne's lace is a very pretty flower, so dainty.



your so funny!



stay safe xmas! you had said your sons daycare is in the next town. will it be a long drive for y'all. i wish him well in his new daycare.
I thought I did, but who knows!

It was from when I was @ 18-23 Years old. I learned so much, and made some really good friends. My friend Joanna was the owner, and our friend Marci managed it. Years later, when Jo's health got bad, she had to sell the shop. Marci branched out on her own w/ an old friend & opened their own flower shop. In fact, they did Adrian's & my flowers for our wedding. Every time I go to La Crosse, I stop in to visit... And buy way too much stuff!!

I wrote the owner who is a really nice lady and fellow animal lover and told her my concerns and she told me the truth, I really believe. It is all just heresay. She told me all is fine and not to worry. She said she is aware of the rumors and then told me they had to let a few folks go who were not fulfilling their contract as far as work produced. That explained everything !!! Disgruntled employees will say anything sometimes. So I am NOT going to worry !!
I am so happy that your work out routine is working for you and giving you energy! Also happy about your job situation!

Now all I have to do is send $$$ to my insurance carrier to get the supplement and Part D (drugs) and I will be good to go!

I really appreciate all the posts of encouragement and concern from all of y'all. It really helps to be a part of such a great family!
I am so glad that you got that all sorted out!!! I know it was frustrating but was confidant it would work out fine!

Have a good night everyone.
That is nice to have those Santas displayed year round!

I still have that string of Christmas lights in the door way leading to the den and the mistletoe hanging up. I am ready to bring it all down now. I might do that today but I still have a few small decorations scattered throughout the house like I always do every year!

Regardless, it should be an interesting evening.
I am looking forward to that! Not sure if you heard the news today but they had a camel running loose through the streets in California and was eventually captured. I have a feeling that might have been Joe Camel trying to make it to the Pines! Hopefully he can escape again!!!
