If you get automatic updates, it's very possible that something microsoft threw in there could have caused your problems. I have windows 7, and only install the security updates.

Today we went to a local farm market. We bought Bussel sprouts,
Cauliflower, celery, carrots.
I let the doggies out. Then I picked up my daughter, gr.daughter, gr.son and off to the park.
We climbed a rather steep slope and my body is letting me know this isn't something it's used to doing.

A friend sent this and I think parents might be well warned.

Wow! Hadn't heard about that!

Dawn went to Holland with a girlfriend today, so I took Chipper on the boardwalk- weather was nice! My friend Tim took me to Wendy's for supper.

Almost 11 p.m. here. Going to bed.

My day today:

I did very little. For some reason, I felt tired.
Certainly not from work. I did very little. Aside
from walking around to let my son's dogs out,
maybe because I'm cutting back on coffee ?
I picked some Borage, smashed it, poured a
cup of boiling water over it, allowed it to steep
about half an hour, added lemon and honey.
I hope I feel more productive tomorrow because
it will be my day to iron for my Polish lady.
I'm not crazy about ironing.

I took challenged so to Walmart this morning and we grilled this afternoon. That is about all I did.

Tomorrow is wash day then work my part time job Sat. Sunday is my day of worship. Monday I will have a new water heater installed (not cheap either). Tuesday will be the nursing home and out for lunch with my two lady friends. We are crossing the river over to IL to see a cousin of the one lady who has cancer then eating lunch in IL.

Well shucks, Glad. You sure are busy! I know water heaters are expensive . I had to replace one in our house (twice). Furnaces aren't cheap either. I had to replace one.

I'll be taking Dawn to the store later, and I need to stop by the hardware store to get hooks for our Christmas lights. Right now, a nap sounds pretty good!

My Day:
Off at about 8:20 to iron for my Polish lady. I stopped at McDonald's for her coffee, which took about 10 or 15 minutes. Then on to see Helen. Remember, she is on her way to her 101 birthday. Yesterday she went with her son in law and her sister to have her eyes checked. Her sister parked the wheelchair while opening the door , but forgetting to lock the brakes. Having opened the door, Rose turned to see the wheelchair going down the ramp, over the curb and tipping over, Helen flying out on her face. Amazingly, she wasn't badly injured. At the hospital she told them, "I thought I was the Flying Nun!"
In spite of bruises, broken toe, etc, she was having her hair done and doing her usual routine.

I've been fighting a cold. This morning, the cold was winning. This afternoon, I'm feeling much better, but it's still with me.
This morning, I slept in, Dawn made pancakes and eggs for me (Feed a cold, Starve a fever.), and I spent a lot of time in the recliner.
Feeling better this afternoon, and seeing that the rain had stopped, I took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk. We got caught in the rain, which probably didn't help my cold much, so Chipper and I came home. Dawn left about 11 this morning. Will be home Sunday night. Would anyone like to come here and 'Put another log on the fire'? At least make me some hot spiced apple cider?

Good evening all. Looks like rain here soon. Got some iris bulbs from our neighbor the other day. So John just got through planting them so they will pop up this spring. Finally got our television set back yesterday from Aarons. It's been gone since Aug and they send it in to be fixed. I sure hope it doesn't break down again. Time will tell.

Lightfoot, I hope your cold / allergy / whatever vanishes soon.
You need to be drinking a tea which is known to fight illness.
You probably won't consider eating raw garlic. Yes, it makes
your body and breath smell, but it heals. If you have congestion,
rub the bottom of your feet with a menthol vaporub, such as Vicks.

My day:
A load of laundry. A trip to Kohl's. A stop at our local Farm Market.
I bought a quart of local raw honey for my youngest son. Their
Brussel sprouts at .99 cents a stalk were inviting.

Plumbing and heating man is here installing new water heater. Had to turn the gas and water off (which I knew would happen) but the house is getting chilly. Sure glad it is not below freezing outside today and at least the sun is shining. He said it would take about two hours to install and he has been here about half hour now.

Well hi there!☺ Looks like another dreary wet day today. I visited the podiatrist this morning, for my pedicure. There's a little pain involved, but at least I don't have to pay for it, like I would at a salon,, where Madge would have me soak my feet in Palmolive dish soap.
Right now, it feels like time for a nap!

I'm a strange Duck. I don't like having my feet messed with.

My day:
Washed dish towels. Bought two stalks of Brussel sprouts at our local Farm Market before it closed for this year. Exchanged a purchase from Kohl's. Gassed up my car. Met daughter, two grands, daughter in law (Sort of seeing as they have been together for 20some years), and a family friend at a buffet where I ate more than I needed. It has been bone-chilling today. I'm not a winter person.
Let the doggies out.
I hope your day went well.

Anyway, I took Dawn to a dentitht appointment in Otsego this morning, stopped by Family Dollar on the way back to Allegan, drove to Family Farm and home to get $40 worth of bird seed, took Dawn to a meeting, walked Chipper, and then came home. Had left over spaghetti and meatballs for supper, and we had 3 trick or treaters tonight.

Hi Margie !

My day:
Scrubbed kitchen floor (On my knees),
a load of laundry, showered, had lunch.
Now I'm ready to let the doggies out and
fetch the mail. After that, I can nestle
down into this old, comfy recliner with
either a book or a youtube movie.

Rather gloomy here, but not bitter cold.

Cleaned the car out today. Outside easy but interior exhausting. Looks bright and shiny now and it took me about half an hour in total. I think the car wash has been scouring the paint work so its best it gets a handwash.
We have lots of cheapish handwash places in the UK set up by Eastern Europeans. for 7 they will give your car a good clean and its extra for a valet.
Been shopping. Have bought a load of Christmas stuff and the shops are full of it. Spent an awful lot of money but we do give to a lot of people at Christmas and as well as gifts there's the wrappings and cards etc.
Going to have a restful evening and recover from all the hard work. ckn

I made a decision this year since shopping is less easily done, now. Ornaments for everyone, a gift and maybe a keepsake to remember me. No more guessing which child likes which super character or cartoon. Have alreay aquired a few, so pretty I may have trouble giving them away : ). Don't mean to be a grouch, but the few thank you's I get, aren't worth the time spent. I think this will work for me this year .
