December 16, 2010

Icy roads this morning created a few problems although I made it to work just fine. Took this pic after I slide into my parking spot at the hospital. Nervous from the short trip there but very thankful that I didn't slide into any ditches. Saw quite a few cars off the road. I just put putted to work....hahahaha
Tis the season for ice and snow though....We have been so cold this week that the snow we got this past Sunday is still on the ground and on alot of the side roads.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Sept 28, 2010

Finally a few days that feel like Fall is here. This pic was taken by skyzoom 4 this morning overlooking Saint Louis.

I am looking forward to winter....My favorite time of the year.

Tony and I have been working on the house one day at a time. I scrubbed the bathroom from floor to ceiling and took out all the old caulk and Sunday I replaced all the caulk. My legs are still screaming at me...can't decide if it is old age or lack of exercise or a combination of both. Tomorrow is my day off and I will be taking down all the curtains in the bedroom and cleaning it from floor to ceiling. I might not be able to walk after that one...hahahaha

Hope everyone has a Wonderful week

One Of Those Days...hahahaha

Guess I was more alseep than awake this morning when I was getting ready for work. One of the patients and I were discussing shoes and I mentioned that I liked working in Dr. Scholls and looked down and had to add to my surprise that apparently today I only wanted to work in one of them as I had on my left foot a Dr. Scholls and on my right was one of my yard work shoes.

Needless to say she laughed so hard and loud that when I went to the next room that patient wanted to know what was so funny and I had to tell him and this went on most of the day. The floor Supervisor of the Nursing Staff mentioned as I was going home that I needed to be on this floor more often as she had not heard so many patients laugh and enjoy themselves more than they had today... naturally I told everyone that I am wearing the other pair tomorrow...hahahaha

Hope everyone is having as good of a week as I am... :-)

Oh My !!

Baxter has decided since I threw his old chair away to take up sleeping on the couch...ha ha ha
We thought he was adjusting to his new chair but as you can see he is not...
Life has been very busy the past few months. Hard to believe that we are into July already.
It is my day off and as usual I am playing catch up with the housework...
Tony has surgery on his eye the 23rd of this month and he and I both are looking forward to it as right now he can't even see out of his right eye.
I had been having extensive dental work done on my teeth but that has been put on hold for several more weeks while I take some antibiotics for an infection from the work.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and staying inside and keeping cool

Well it was a wild and stormy night last night first I am texting my daughter from the basement where Baxter and I were sitting during our Tornado Sirens going off here and then a few hours later she is texting me from her basement as her family is sitting during the Tornado Sirens that were going off there in Arkansas.

I'm very thankful that we are all safe this morning.
I haven't heard from Tony yet but I am sure they got out on the golf course early... I hope they are having good weather.
I had to literally shove Baxter down the stairs and then it was a contest between his howling and the thunder and for a while there he was winning...hahahaha
After it was over I guess he was used to it down there and I had to shove him back up the stairs. Whew!! What a night.
I have a very busy day planned although I am late getting started as I slept in this morning.
I hope the rest of the weekend goes well for everyone.

One of those days...LOL

Well it started out that way anyway... I couldn't find my umbrella this morning, thought I left it in my car and it was drizzling when I left for work. When I parked my car it started pouring down and then I remembered I had put it up on the counter last night when Tony and I went to dinner so Baxter wouldn't destroy it. Yes, 3 years old and he is still all puppy.
Needless to say I was pretty wet by the time I almost reached the hospital and to save a few extra steps I cut through a part with grass on it...Big mistake as my feet slipped and I landed on my backside..thank goodness the grass hadn't really gotten wet yet... I was suppose to mail my netflix movie back and walked right past the mailboxes that are almost in your way going into the building. I always go get my girlfriend Carol a glass of tea from the Cafeteria as she doesn't get to work until the last minute and we are not allowed to go there after we start work. Spilt the first foam glass full and had to get another. All this within 15 minutes of getting to work.
Glad that the rest of the day went fine :-) I got to work on the 3rd floor of the hospital which is the Psych floor. I like to work there as I guess I have a lot of empathy for the patients in this unit. I enjoy talking to them and even more being able to encourage them that overcoming depression can be done, I am a living example of that.
Tony left today for his annual golf trip with his buddies. Baxter will plant himself in his chair at the front window and stay there whining for the next 6 days.
I have several days off as I know I won't get much sleep from all that whining...hahahahaha
Hope everyone has a Great Week.

Early Morning Rambling's

What fun the past few weeks have been. I am already tired of the snow and Winter is just getting started. It is almost 4 a.m. and I am wide awake. The temperature outside is 5 but with the windchill it is -7. Brrrr.. I have the next several days off and I have a very busy schedule planned. With all the hours I have put in this past month, I have neglected quite a bit of stuff around the house here.
I saw on Facebook today that my granddaughter Stacey got her first tooth in. Sammy better watch out now..
I turned 51 a few days ago. I had a really nice Birthday even though I had to work that day. Tony cooked me a wonderful dinner and had a cheesecake topped with strawberries. Yummy !! It is definitely all gone now, Tony only got one piece of it...hahahahaha
Two Birthdays stick out in my memory as my favorites. One was when I got a doll called Little Miss No Name. She had a sad looking face with a teardrop on it. I loved that doll. I wish I still had her. I have no idea what ever happened to her. The other was when I got my Sewing Machine. That I still have or rather it is still in my Dad's house. I wish I had it with me but with the circumstances like they are I will never go back there to get it.
We have another chance of a few snow squalls coming through today. Makes for a good day to stay indoors but knowing Tony he will want to get out and drive around the city for awhile. As always I grab the camera and hop into that passenger seat... There is always something interesting to photograph.
I hope everyone has a pleasant week.
