Spring Break

My grandchildren came up to my house for spring Break. My birthday was also last week. It was a busy week but fun.
This SS rotation uses Jelly Bellies. My small living room was filled with jelly beans. My daughter and I even drove to the factory. The flavors we were missing, were no longer being made, so the trip was not as fruitful as we had hoped.

A Test

Where have my posts gone? I write, I post and nothing shows up. It tells me I posted on March 31, but I can not find it.

Fence Jumper

Maggie did it. Yesterday Maggie jumped the fence and ran into the field, and toured the neighborhood. She did this twice. She is using the snowbanks to leap over. I went out to shovel down the bank she used meanwhile she found another which also let her return to the yard. Spring please come soon.
The "State budget is also not helping me to be calm. I voted for Walker, I want to balance the budget, but I do not want to take away the rights of workers to bargain. I have worn red. My daughter wrote her legislatures, and protested in Appleton, and my grandchildren protested in Madison.

Happy Valentines Day

I hope all have a great day. This day has been very hard for me. I do not remember last year's celebration because John was just trying to live. His loss has made this day hard. I have been cleaning and reorganizing the Christmas decorations, and came across a box in the wrong spot. The box contained, a journal I wrote as John and I dated, and our wedding cross that was on the cake.
Making this day better was an event I attended Saturday night at the church. There was a fund raising event for the youth going to the National Youth Gathering in 2012 at New Orleans. The name of this event was The Not So Beautiful, Beauty Contest. There were five male contestants who dressed in formal wear, and competed in a talent show. They were such good sports, and we laughed all night. Over $700.00 was raised. I wish I knew how to but up pictures.

The Pack is back!

I can stop being nervous, the Packers won the Super Bowl. If someone said the Packers would win, that was not good news to me, because I was afraid that the Packers would not be ready to play, but if someone would say the Steelers would win, then I felt they know the strengths of the teams, and they would be right. I think we have a great coach, and coaches as well as a great team.
I did go to Peter's to watch the game. I did not go into the hot tub until after the game, it was just too close. We had tasty Chile for supper. No drinking except soda, all we needed to get high was the win. The dogs did not get into things they should not, but did not like the cheering.

Packers Win!!!

I am very happy because the Packers won yesterday. I have been cheering for them no matter if they win or not, but winning is the best. Can not afford to go to Texas, but will watch from my chair in front of the TV,or maybe from a hot tub. Had an invite yesterday but got the message too late.

Merry Christmas
I have not been able to get on the Internet. Peter fixed it on Christmas when he came down.
We had a nice Christmas with more to come when Pat and the boys come tomorrow. Decorating was haphazard. Pennie thought that cleaning was more important than decorating. I got a tree up and one drawer of balls on it,and the star on top. I got a new fibre optics tree and John had a train that also glowed in different colors. I put them on top of the bookshelf. When Luke saw them, he suggested that I get them to move with music. His Grandfather would have loved that.
