    second thing almost 8 plus inches of snow are gone today with the sun out and temps of 50=+ so we did good today tomorrow will finish it off with temps of 57 headed our way and bright sunshine .. besides watching snow melt lol how was your days?? we made a jello poke cake for desert tonight all sugar free in the mix and the jello, and the cool whip so i can have some lol we can get yellow or chocolate sugar free mixes here but have not been able to find a white sugar free does anyone know if they have them we make do though with the yellow for the jello cake just was wondering if they made white sugar free// and if not, why not?? for anyone wondering we can use red heart aran for squares as it is not white and pam at pine ridge is fine with it, and , is not accepting any more of the squares made of wool as they are to hard to launder and care for after the end of the year just so you know i cant work with wool so doesn't effect me but i know some do thats all i know for now folks see ya later enjoy your weekend oh and i got a very nice note from w4w saying they loved the hats good to know lol

    wow mary jo!! You got all that done now terrific!! and you had to go and mention strawberries huh!! lol now i want some!! Its one of the fruits i can usually eat without too much worrying about sugar content!! those and blueberries lol Heard from our snowbear and she has been busy making things for Christmas, and charity and will try to get here more often i told her we haven't given up on her yet, and wont like it or not, shes a part of this group lol oh yesterday was a bit frustrating getting my scripts refilled first of all (rant to follow) i have gotten the same scripts for two years same doc same pharmacy two years ok same scripts same me!! lately it has been a hassle and it is they faxed the dr and they haven't replied back and that is not true cause i thn call the office and confirm they sent it in second of all the excuse this time was they dont have one in stock and cant get it till tonight, but it is fine it is not one of the more imp. ones i told handy we are changing pharmacies for next month as this is ridiculous always some excuse every single month i have talked to the pharmacist many times and it still happens we may end up paying a co payment per script somewhere else but to me its worth the less stress every month~~ i still plan on calling or writing the store manger about it but we,ll see) For now crisis averted for this month anyway thats the good part of that story lol handy went to menards for a couple things so i told him to look at thermostats ours is as old as the house but i dont want a digital one lol so he will what he can see i guess and he said they dont have a selection of maxies fancy feast there any more so now we have to get that elsewhere oh they sell a case of one kind only but maxie likes variety anyway, many things at menards they only have one time for a short time too then you never see it again so whats with that?? here's a question for you have any of you ever heard of Kitchen Bouquet?? Its a flavoring additive for making gravy from scratch, my mom always used it and so have i handy went to pick some up i told him its last time i got it anyway with the canned jarred packaged gravy stuff that aisle where it should be right no he found it, by the ketchup and mustards and mayo??? go figure huh lol least he did find it though thats the good part of the story anyway well i feel spent now lol and how is everyone else doing today huh any good news to report or any good jokes?? lol or is that last question one?? cause im not laughing oh the telegraph wire just tapped out, good news needed calling all good news please all for now have to regroup a bit and sip my diet coke and pick up a hook lol that always makes me smile
