Good morning. No snow yet but I am still staying home today.

Kathleen, I have both dry and wet mac. degen. in the rt. eye and wet in the left. Such an adorable model for the cute nighties. She is sure growing up fast.

Happy Sunday.

The nightgowns look even better on the models.  What cuties -- both of them.  Bet the love sewn in made them even more comfy!

DH is funny, Kathleen. Papa (FIL) would watch TV that way too. He said he was just resting his eyes. And if we changed the channel, he would pop awake, "Hey, I was watching that!". He was pretty funny. Addie and her doll look happy to wear their new nightgowns. I see the doll is waving at you. 

Wow, that was a busy day for you, Kim. You aren't slacking at all. 

It's foggy here this morning. It's 52 and that's the high for the day. Kind of the low for the day too. Well, 50. We have funny days like that. 

I better get moving and get ready for church.

Good morning, another beautiful but chilly day here today. Only about 20 out now and it's not suppose to get any warmer.

We left early yesterday morning so I could get my vaccine . We got there early but I went right in and it wasn't busy. Got my shot and then waited the required 15 minutes before leaving. We stopped and got a bite to eat and then headed to my Mom's to get her mail together to send to her and water her plants. Then on to the post office to get it sent off. Came home and the PT came for my last home visit. After she left I went outside and walked a short distance down the road and back. 

Very cute picture Kathleen. Addie looks delighted with both her pj's and her dolls.

Not much happening around here today. I do need to go out and check my houses. I am going to try to drive and see if my leg is strong enough. 

I did finish another book in the Virgin River series last night. I think that was either number 15 or 16. Time to find the next one.

Well I guess I should see about a little breakfast before I get in the shower.

Have a beautiful Sunday...

Barbara, I didn't know that shots were given for dry macular degeneration. Thought it was only to dry up the wet. We always learn here! Good idea to stay home Sunday. And enjoy some of that squash soup on a cold day. You've been busy in the kitchen!

DH has been watching Band of Brothers all day. Sometimes with his eyes closed. I play music. I'm thinking he's gonna stay up past his 8pm bedtime too. That means no TV for me.

Oh I meant to say, I am reading a series by Lynn Cahoon "A Tourist Trap Mystery". It's good.

You are such a great Nana, Kathleen! It sounds like Addie had a good day. And Gigi too. 

Maybe tomorrow you will get hourly e mails about mom's appointment, Alice! Remember, it's at 11:30. At Sam's. We are supposed to get a lot of rain, no snow. I guess your front will miss us. 

I haven't heard of the Zookeeper's  Wife, Marilyn. I should check that out. 

You are doing a lot of things with that ginger, Barbara. DD1 loves it, she uses a lot of it. But I don't think she's ever had a huge amount like that. It will be fun to see if it grows. I think DDd1 uses that recipe for butternut squash soup, and she loves it. She loves making soup. 

DGS1 and I got the new ceiling fan up in my bedroom. It looks good, and the fan works! Tomorrow we will put up the fan in his bedroom, and it will go up in a snap! I did get a little quilting in this afternoon. I'm down to stitching the last seam on the binding, then whipping the things on back down. Now it's time to watch something good on TV.

Hi All. It's cold here again today. Imagine that in Illinois in the winter. lol They are talking about a snowstorm starting sometime tomaorrow. I think I'll do zoom sunday school and you tube church.

Marilyn, I have mac. degen in both eyes (wet and dry). My Eye Dr(s) recommend Preservision. I don't take any other vitamins. I get shots in both eyes . They dilate them every other time to gt the retinal pics and that is when it's harder to drive myself. Other than getting the bloody spot, it's not that bad. 

Rita I will keep hoping that this is not that unmentionable word for you. 

I agree that Kim may be a new member of the Insta Gators club. Should we tell her there are 16+ books in the series? I'm glad a new one will be out soon.

So cute that Addie got all dressed up for you. I'm sure she loves her new outfit and dollie's to match. And donut holes too. Who could ask for more?

I made an apple pie this AM. I had some apples that wer fading fast. This recipe had an addendum to add some ginger so I got to use a little of that fresh ginger. I must have been the onlu person who wanted it as they sent a whole bin full. I will say it is very fresh and grates easily. So there is some marinating in vodka, some frozen , one corm planted(hoping to grow a ginger plant) and some n the crisper.

I have pork chops in the crockpot that I was tempted to add ginger to but didn't. Then I found a recipe for butternut squash soup so am working on that. This is the American Test Kitchen's recipe so it should be good. I've never steamed the whole squash to cook it before. The seeds and innards were cooked in the steaming liquid. That will be strained and added to the squash to make the soup. Hope it tastes as good as it smells.

I'm hesitant to read that Crawdad book too. It sounds pretty heavy. When I order my kindle books, I get them through Amazon and they go directly to the kindle. I haven't mastered the library card use for kindle.

Hi All! I've enjoyed listening to everyone's reviews of different books and writers.  Has anyone read a newer book "In An Instant" by Suzanne Redfearn?  I've seen it advertised and it looks interesting. I am undecided if I want to read "Where The Crawdads Sing" after reading varied reviews. I have "The Zookeepers Wife" reserved at the library (the one where we quilt) Anyone read this one?
