Hi! Tootie15, bigkat and walker just saw your weather on our noon news!!!! Our cold is coming and it won't be pretty. I just posted a macaroni and cheese recipe for the slow cooker. I've not made it, but it is from a cookbook called Fix It and Forget It Pink Cookbook.

Up early because DH was up at 4:00 a.m. shining a flashlight in the house. I checked on him and he was fine. The CO detector in the other bedroom was beeping. Just needed batteries! Stay warm and safe. Kathy

Good morning ~ Sorry some of you are freezing. I can understand why you dislike it. I love winter - at least the ones I have been exposed to. Hopefully it will by-pass you Tootie and blow out somewhere into the Atlantic. Love the kitty, FHG! We will be at 52 today, so I cannot complain, but wait for summer - I will be complaining a lot as I hate hot weather! Wound care doc today. One of the "holes" is getting a lot smaller, the other is slower but getting there. Pedicure later. Stay in and warm ladies

Good morning cookie and all .... We are a very cold 1 degree .... with a high of 8. Schools are closed today because of the temperature ... windchill is -12. I'm with you walker, I like the change of seasons too, but wish winter would go by a lot quicker. I know we were spoiled last year, as we had a very mild winter. I am going to venture out this morning to get my hair cut .... the place I go to is literally right around the corner, so I am going to walk.

cookie ... glad to hear that your knee is coming along and healing.

kathy ... thank goodness it was only the batteries .... the "chirps" can be annoying, but very useful ...(unfortunately) ... and I am going to check out that Mac and Cheese recipe.

PS ~ If you don't hear from me later on .... send out the dogs ... I may be frozen in a snowbank ....

Good Morning Friends!!!! When Queen Air is back in service I am heading to a warmer climate!!!!! Arrrgggghhh.....on a positive note....sun is shining and it looks pretty out...if you can just look at least the snow has Tootie I am heading out for a hair cut this morning....then get some groceries and head home to stay!!! And, by early next week it will be worse...sub-zero has been a tough start to winter so maybe we will get lucky and the rest of winter will be better for all of us in the north....(ha, such a dreamer I am).

Good morning!! Happy Friday...I think it is! Kids will be back to school on Monday...if schools will be open with the cold temp's. I don't know what we were over night, but at 9am we were 2, and 12 below with the wind chill. GR was colder, the lake once again was keeping us warmer at the lake shore. They say it will be 30 tomorrow...for one day and then back down again. We have that wonderful sunshine too, very bright with all the snow on the ground.

LOL ... my hairdresser had to cancel my last appointment, so I was about a week and a half over ... seems it grew super fast in that last week!!
