It's Cold

The weather is very cold and was this whole weekend. My youngest son and family and friend came for the weekend. The kids came to go sledding. It was Too Cold, so instead we went to the movies. I don't go sledding any more just watch. I did go to the movie with them. We also played canasta and I won with my partners. I had as partner Alex first, my oldest grandson, then Pat my son, and then Pennie My daughter. I lost to Dr John when we played three handed. The movie we saw was "National Treasure" I think that was the name. I liked it. On Sunday we went to church the whole family and that was nice. Pat and Curtis hauled things up and down our basement steps and Alex snowblowed the drive way. Warm feelings even with blowing snow.

Send some of that cold down here to Houston! It is hot and muggy and tomorrow it is supposed to rain. Winter apparently has left here.

Greetings from Florida. We're having rain here this evening. We cancelled our afternoon golf time. But we plan on going out again tomorrow afternoon. It'll be in the 70's. 80+ by this weekend, I think. Just remember Neenah isn't really in the "South." It's just that for so many years you were so far north. It's relative, I guess. Sorry to see that you're selling the Tea Pot train. It is so cute. Best wishes to all. Stay warm.

I am so glad Pat the boys are visiting you so often...makes the winter a little more tolerable, right?

Did you like the movie? We liked the first one better. The weather here is cold and rainy.

We are having a bit warmer weather right now. But it goes up and down, never gets as cold here as it does there, though.

I wish that we played card games, it would help get through the days when you can't go outside. But my husband won't play cards. I used to play Pinoucle.

Hi, Betty,

I LOVE National Treasure -- but haven't seen the sequel, yet.

Send snow, please. We've had Spring all winter long, down here!

Hey Betty! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love making new blogging friends! I live in the Vancouver area of BC and it's darn right balmy over here! If we want to go sledding, we have to drive for a couple of hours to a mountain, where there's snow. Have a great day!

I'd send some warm spring Savannah weather up your way, but only if you are really sure you want it.

(comes with lots of pollen and flu bugs this year.)

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.
I'm in the Pacific Northwest and am delighted to say that we are having some very nice weather and the temp is above 40 degrees. In fact it has been in the upper forties and lower fifties lately.
I'm a happy old gal as I do love Spring. I've been doing some much needed yard work and am finding little signs of spring everywhere. I love the brave flowers that are blooming even though there is still snow on a nearby mountain.
I hope the incident at your church was not serious and I certainly applaud those who handled it so wisely.

Oh Betty, I love reading about Maggie's antics. Our animanls are just like children, aren't they? I'm glad she didn't catch that rabbit. Stay warm. I's nice here, but not hot......yet!
