23* and sunny in NW Maine, lost a whole 2” of snowpack, and 4” off waistline.

 

Might be from sanding sidewalk and driveway, and oilfill.

 

Wish you the best with your mother and her care, mine had last stroke @ 90 and remained until 92-3?

 

Her room was very dry, humidifying (sp) seemed to help.

 

Need wood it’s gonna be brisk temp’s expected to plummet to negatives.

 

@catwoman500

 

Is your trouble viewing photos or posting, keep question ez and I’ll try to assist. Windows 10, or iphone, Android should all be same.

 

In reply/post, click picture of camera, navigate to photo on your hard drive or memory on phone, click picture, add name(optional) and click done by scrolling up, then click done.

Camden, MECamden, ME

 Only issue, might be direction or orientation of picture may change if posted from smartphone(like this one).

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

@Frozenoem  Well I hope you suspect wrong then.  Stay safe in the cold, no falling, that sounds quite dangerous.

 

After 7 months on hospice and one close call (pneumonia)  my mom is stable once again.  She has lost much weight and she looks wrinkled.  She is in no pain, asks for small amounts of food and we give her broth, coffee  and yogurt.  Everything else goes through the tube.  It could be worse.  She turned 82 a couple of weeks ago. 

 

We have sun and frost on the ground.  I am wishing for a few days of continued sun.  We will see.  Highs in the low 50s, lows in the lowish thirties, normal winter here.  You know I complain more if it gets away from normal.

32* and raining, puddles and GoreTex boots. With a side of ice.

 

@LaDolceVita

 

I wish on the med’s none made.

The only meds are for pain, everything in moderation.

 

January 11 expletives flow for next round of tests, if it’s what I suspect deep do doo. Lifetime joy. Sarcasm 402🤣.

 

Need Fire, hope I succeed.

Good Morning, All,

It's so cold in the house, but when I opened the door to get the paper, this warmth hit me in the face. It's 63! Winter arrives in a few hours and we are having April-like temps...but not for long they say.

My stepson sent me an Oregon Riviera pear box last week, and I had the first one for breakfast this morning. I LOVE those things. If you aren't familiar with them, they are the ones you can cut in half and eat with a spoon right out of the skin. What great flavor they have.

I have more wrapping yet to do and I was thinking about making cookies, but the baking urge hasn't really hit me yet. Cat Tongue

Wishing good safe weather for everyone. Need more coffee. Still can't get any photos on this thing. N.

@marieteresa01  Welcome to the Front Porch.    Would love to see some pictures oin the Sierras!

 

Rain and clouds continue here in the southeast.  More of the same in the forecast, with perhaps a sunny day here and there.  The temps are high 40s and low 50s so not too bad, no long john weather.   Wanted to ride up to the homestead but afraid of traffic and prefer sunny days for driving.  I have plenty of chores here so I will stay busy. 

 

@Frozenoem  Good news on the health front?  You have not mentioned any falls only healing recently so I feel hopeful that you have received some acceptible medication? 

 

@catwoman500  I have seen 2 episodes of the Woman in White.  Follows the movie I have seen very closely. 

 

@DaveMcK  Great Christmas dog pictures a few days back.  I like to think of warm and happy pets at Christmas, there are enough sad animals at the shelters.

Recently, I moved to the Sierras in northern California where just a few days before Christmas, I am surrounded by winter’s glory of snow peaked mountains and a cobalt blue lake. Currently, I am working on three books of poetry, short stories, and a memoir. I am also teaching myself how to read music so I can entertain myself on a coveted keyboard my son gave me for Christmas last year. Every day, my goal is to keep learning. It can help improve your performance on a number of tasks and, I find that the more I practice a new skill, the more I learn; funny how that works.

Mornin', Porch Peeps!

37 here and cloudy. Those clouds are apparently bringing in a huge rain storm later that will last until Saturday morning. It's a shame since the temp will reach 60 on Friday, but nobody will be able to enjoy it with all the precip. The good thing is that it will be at least partly sunny on Christmas with no chance of snow.

I'm off in a few minutes to buy the wine for Christmas. Cheers! N.
