Want to wish everyone a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I don't make resolutions I think they are a waste of time LOL. It's just time to build a healthier and stronger life for myself so I will do my best.


You may be sober but not the next guy or gal driving.

Is It Over Yet?

I really can complain at all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were wonderful.

Christmas Eve was much quieter than usual as some couldn't make it for one reason or another. So it was only 3 of us and way to much food, as I made sausage, peppers and onions, pizza, I had cold meats lots of cheeses, black olives and green stuffed olives and pepperenseni. Debbie brought dessets and chips and what they like to drink I know there was more . So bagged it up and sent it on its way.

Christmas Day was really nice everyone should up not that that is a lot of people but it was my daughter and 2 grand children and 2 great grand kids. Tracy made some really good stuffed shells, meat balls and ham with a salad to go along with it. I made a calzone, another cold meat and cheese plater with a few other things to nibble on  we ate really well. Also a few desserts

Some Sad News and Some Good

I had been wondering about one of the Blogs I read that had not updated since Thanksgiving. So I went to check and just today her sister posted that she had passed away; Adventures With Miss Mermaid Child Of The Planet. She had been struggling for years with a rare disease and starting the first of 2019 had been hospitalize a few times. It was a really bad year but she always kept herself busy no matter her pain. May she now RIP.

Today my Clam finally showed up. It was much heavier than I had thought it would be but I managed to get it up on the porch after the driver left it on ground in front of the porch. I had a surprise visit from my daughter Tracy who had a birthday today and her son my grandson and his 2 little ones. I quick made a Calzone which I had never made before and we all sat down to eat. Tracy brought in the tent and Anthony unboxed it and we figured out how to open it. It was a bit of a struggle but we got it up and back down. I sure have my work cut out for me building up my upper body because there won't be any help for me when I hit out of here hopefully no later than May.

I know what I have to do so I will just get on it. Need to pick up some weights and some elastic pull bands. I have pullies on the bike but I have not been able to master them for some reason, maybe it is the placement of them. Anyway I will get started on this new adventure end of this week.

The weather has still been on the chilly side during the late evening through around 10 am and then warms up some. We are going to go up into the low 70's for a few days and then back down with more rain and snow on the mountains. 

I have been waiting for 1 pkg since Dec. 11. I kept getting notices of delivery and then nothing. Today was it for me. I tried to contact customer service to no avail. It just opens another page just like the previous one. Something asking about an entirely different subject popped up so I used that one to complain. Not knowing if that worked I found another spot to add to it. Every time they sent a delivery date I stayed home so I don't have to worry about Porch Pirates taking off with my package. The response was supposed to to take 2 working days. Good Grief! Well the response came in a couple of hours from both my rants. So I am supposed to get a delivery on Dec 23. That is really cutting it close. We shall see.

I did a quick run to the grocery store to pick up some items to make desserts with my daughter tomorrow and get them out of the way. Neither of us ever made any of them before so we shall see what we manage.
Sunday morning I will go back to the grocery store and pick up the rest of the items for our dinners. Also found a recipe for Calzone and want to make one tomorrow to see how that goes. 

Every holiday I always go through the to small fridge and freezer and swear I'm going to buy a bigger fridge, then when it's all over I just forget about it.

It's A Little Chilly

This has been a pretty chilly start to Dec. cold nights and then gorgeous days. This coming week we will have night lows in the low 30's and the day time highs will be mid 50's . Out here it gets a little colder since we have more desert than city. But at the rate they are building that may not be the case for much longer. But I am still not going to complain about the cold I'm loving it. And according to this weather forecast looks like cold rain for Christmas.

Toward the end of this week I will finish buying the groceries for the holidays.

I am still missing two orders that should have been in last week. No more Black Friday or Cyber week orders for me. If they can't handle the rush and get the things in on time then stop your sales. I don't care how cheap something is I will never order anything after Dec. 1.

Other than that I have been doing some deep cleaning and I hope to be able to shampoo the carpets but I don't think that is going to happen.

Good Night All
