Saturday/Sunday Notes.

Saturday was a cloudy mild day in the 40’s, Donna had to work the evening shift at the restaurant. Not much else doing around here, the Kid’s (Andy & Samantha ) went with a friend down to St Louis for the Mardi Gras. Sadie is being babysitted by her Grandma & Grandpa. She slept the night with us on our bed.

Sunday(Today) we woke up to a couple of inches if snow, looks like March is starting out cold and wet. Supposed to only have a high of 19 today and not warm into the 30’s until Thursday.

Here I was hoping for an early spring, we are usual starting to green up by my birthday (Apr 1st).

Donna has the day shift at Walgreens today so I am on the doggie detail until the kid’s get home. They are both laying at my feet as I type this, later I will go in my room and put on a train movie, and they will both nap on the bed next to me.

No plans to leave the house today, anymore if there is snow on the ground we just wait until it is gone or we absolutely have to go out for something.

Donna & Samantha don’t have a choice since they have their jobs to go to. but since Samantha works the night shift Andy takes her to work and picks her up.

Today is my Granddaughter Allie’s 21st birthday, doesn’t seem possible, I guess we are getting old fast.

Nothing else going on here in bustling Dardenne Prairie, just another day in heaven. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…….


  1. Having a sleet storm here right now. Our only day off! Of well, at least we don't have to go outside to check the workers in. But planning on church and laundry in a bit. And out to eat.

    I really can not complain as I think about the snow you and Donna have faced this winter. Family back in Jersey and MD, doing the same. Week after week after week.

  2. I don't blame you for not going outside in the cold and snow. I'd stay snuggled with the pups also.

  3. There may be a little bit of winter left, but soon we will all be complaining about the heat! I wouldn't be surprised if we don't skip spring and go directly into summer.

  4. We dropped from 70 to 50 in about 10 minutes here this AM..Guess it's back inside the Hiker with the blinds drawn as it dips down to 30 degrees here in Texas Hill Country tonight!

  5. Yup, some days you just gotta do what ya gotta do! I dread heading back into that mess!~
