Well the great smokeout started at work and as predicted this gal is not walking that long walk to the car for a smoke. I haven't quit smoking just not doing it during working hours.

Tony and I have decided that we will have our Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday. I don't mind going to someones to eat dinner but I truely miss those leftovers in the fridge. hahaha And all who know me know I love leftover potatoe salad the best.....

We will be replacing our exsisting smoke detectors this evening as they ones that are here are quite outdated and unreliable. We have had several firetrucks in the neighborhood over the last few weeks although most of them are from people not having their furnaces checked out before they lit them for the season.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving !!!!!

Messing around with my cell phone camera this morning. I have the day off, am not even sitting with any patients today. Tony will go hunting with his son this weekend at the farm, so I will do extra sitting then...

One more week and Thanksgiving will be here. A year ago I just wasn't quite sure I would ever make it to the point that I am today. With the help of family and friends I lead a productive life. I truely have a lot to be thankful for.

We dropped Baxter off at the Groomers Saturday and since we had a few hours before he would be ready Tony decided we should go downtown and run around. Tony has grown up here plus was a Limo driver for many a year so he knows his way around here. I just go along for the ride and enjoy the sites.
We went to Laclede's Landing yesterday. The streets are still cobblestone as you can see in the picture. Actually several parts of the city are still cobblestone. We went down to the heart of the city (1st streeet) and worked our way around enjoying seeing the City Workers putting up the Christmas decorations. We will go back down in a few weeks to see it all dressed up and ready for the Christmas Season.
We passed by the old Courthouse and the street was lined with protesters for Gay Rights marriages. Tony made a comment about wrong timing on that one, we were just thankful it was a peaceful gathering.
Saw several people at the street corners with signs begging for food or money. Sad to say but the thought crossed my mind are they really just out there panhandling to support their drug habits. Noticed a few people reaching out of their cars handing change to them.
I hope everyone has a Great Week !!!!

Cold Rains of November

I worked a double shift yesterday instead of working my day off today. As you can see from the picture of the front yard, plenty of leaves have fallen again. Guess this coming weekend will be a very busy one for Tony and I. Although we have a chance of snow on Saturday.
Next Thursday is the big smoke out at work. People can go to their cars to smoke but no where else on the hospital property. I have to park quite a distance from the hospital so I am quite sure I will not be smoking during the day at work.
I hope everyone is having a Great Week !!!!

My turn yesterday to get out and mow and rake up the leaves. I got three quarters of the yard done before dark and decided I would finish the rest when I got home today. Well scratch that bright idea, it was so windy today that it doesn't looked like I touched the yard yesterday. It is suppose to be even more windier tomorrow. Then rain on Thursday so it looks like we won't get back into the yard until this weekend. Am sure we will have monster piles of leaves by then. I personally think it is time to trim back several trees....hahahahaha

We found out this past week that Beth is having twin girls. I am sooooo excited.

I hope everyone is having a great week...
