We still have a landline phone but we also have cell phones for emergencies just like you mentioned, Meceka and ours do not have contracts either. I use Net-10.

Good evening, MMC!

My, it was a chilly day today. I took a walk around the yard - still soft in spots. There is a big ice block in the seasonal creek which could cause a flood in the back yard should we get the rain that is forecast for Easter. I do not mind rain, but I certainly do not want a flood. In the next day or so I am going to start some plants for the garden. There is huge stack of coffee take-out cups that I have saved. They are deep so hopefully there will be good roots formed! Might try to build a cold-frame, too. I've always wanted one, but we shall see. I am going to relax for the rest of the night and read some more of the biography of Saint Teresa of Avila I started reading a few days ago.

MERRY dreams!

Not much going on here. It is still quite chilly outside but the temperature is supposed to start slowly getting better toward Easter. I was off today as we refinanced our house and had to close. It was a pretty good deal. It doesn't extend the mortgage any longer than it is already and it is a much lower interest rate. We will have some money to do some very needed repairs and stuff too. Tomorrow hopefully I will be back on between 5 and 6 a.m. working. At least the goobers are gone for those of you who remember those days !!

My "little man" Wishbone is doing well. I am so thankful. We were worried about Clancy so we had some blood work done and it was all normal. Hermione continues to mature. Now when we are getting ready to go somewhere all I have to do is ask her to "get in her house" and she goes right into the crate we have for her here in the living room. That is a HUGE improvement because at one time my husband would have to wrestle her into the crate. I am hoping she will be mature enough soon so we can leave her out of the crate with Wish and Clancy when we are gone.

I went to the drug store today and bought some temporary filler for my tooth. It is not a replacement for the dentist but it should help until I can get an appointment.

I have a lesson to review for my writing class and then an assignment so I am going to go for now and get started on that. On Friday the final exam will be released so we can take a look at it and get started. It sounds like it is going to be monstrous. I hope I get an A. We also have to publish a short creative work as our final assignment. I am using one of my blogs from here called "Autumn Memories" I have revised it a lot since I first wrote it for the MMC blog as we are limited to 500 words. I guess I am pretty happy with it. Of course, I am going to re-read it several more times to make sure I have done everything I can to help it.

Star - So glad you are done with Subway. xo

XMas - I really hope you are feeling better xo

Big (((((Hugs))))) to all but ESPECIALLY to:


Ella, Harlowe, Snowball, Gomez, Ophelia, Sidney, Alex, Merlin, Snickers, Victor, Daisy, Diva, Mickey, Palmer, Mouse, Bo, Chico, Meca, Alvin, Charlie, Gary, Bailey, Jerrold, Irving, Martha, Uncle Julio, Missy, Scooby, Sasha, Jacob, Cracker, Bunny B, Penny, Pocket, LuLu, Bear-Bear, Stripey, Holly, Fate Puppy (London,) Buster, Missy, Baby, Santa's Polar Bears, Sangria, O'Malley, Beau, Taz, Zema, Rizzo, Bella, Happy, Sam, Guinness, Holly Noel, Larry SR, Mama, Happy, Molly, Maggie, Jazzie, Bella, Bentley and all furkids everywhere xoxoo


I know lots of people here are tired of snow, But I just cant resist snowy Christmas scenes !!

That's nice that you guys got a lower interest rate. Congrats!

So happy that all of your furkids are doing well =] XO

Good luck on your final exam! You'll do GREAT!!

Good evening everyone. Not a whole lot going on here tonight. My husband is doing some work in the kitchen right now. The only way this project is going to get done is if he does a little something every day. He's doing some plumbing work right now. I think I'm going to visit my daughter at work in a few minutes. She works at a frozen yogurt place, so I'll have to bring some home for everyone. I hope you are all having a wonderful night!

I showed her my phone and told her I couldn't and she actually chuckled as she handed me hers and said, "Oh honey, here, just use mine."

That's pretty bad when your own grandma "out techs" you.
We don't have a smartphone either.

I was wondering where you were.

The main reason I want a smart phone: the MMC forums! I'm already looking forward to the Christmas Blossoms 2013 threat, and with a phone that has a camera, I can post all sorts of good Christmas finds...excited to go "hunting" for them in late September!
I LOVE MY IPHONE!!! love love love love love love love....

Darlene Love.....mmmmmmmm....that's another nice thought.....

She is one of my very favorite saints. I also really love St. Francis of Assisi and of course, St. Nicholas !! xo
