As I See It

It may be the end of March, but it's not to late for a snow storm in Wi......unfortunately. It's wet and heavy and the estimates I've heard say about 6". It's still windy and it look like a 'wintery mix' is still coming down. This is what I see from my table as I sit at my computer, when it hits the patio door it melts and runs down. My poor birds........nothing in the feeder for them. 

These darn shrubs are invincible :-(  When they are not bogged down with heavy, wet snow they cover up 1/2 the window and I hate them. This summer I NEED to have them removed!

I did remember to weigh myself today and I gained 2#. That's something that doesn't make most people's good for me. I can't believe how skinny I look.......or maybe I was just fat. I always was thin, very thin, but after I married Kev he fattened me up.....or I just got older and fatter. 
I've graduated to washing the dishes and have plans to clean one bathroom today. No, I was not doing a thing! But I live here and can't let Kev do anything IF I can help. 
Friday my son and his children are coming to visit.
I'm glad I'm feeling better b/c Monday I have a full day. During the day I have a dr appt out of town and then a Feel Better Look Good meeting in the evening. I didn't want to do both on the same day but the next meeting was a month away, and by that time I will be out of hair :-(
I've been doing a lot of reading.....the last 3 books I read were mostly about being pregnant and babies (no, I didn't realize it when I chose those books) so I think I need to change my genre and find a good murder mystery.
Yesterday when I opened my front door to get the mail I found a 'care package' sitting there: dessert, card, crossword book (I don't do other word/number games). Cool, huh?
The other day my friend took me to the clinic for my blood work. After that we (she) did a little shopping. I needed smaller pants, they fit! It's always good to get out of the house and go somewhere other than a doctor's office. 
Unfortunately my WBC is still too low for a treatment, hope it's OK by next Wednesday. I hate chemo but I know it has to be done. On the other hand the numbers that were sky high are lower and lower....that's a great thing!!!!
And that's how I see today!
Happy Easter weekend!
Thank you all for your wonderful comments. 


  1. Glad to hear that you have gained two pounds. I would not rush the housework. I know Kev can't do all the work, but do not hurry things too fast. I always do that when I am sick.

  2. Easter snow. Hope the Easter Bunny has snow shoes!
    Have a blessed Easter.

  12. Linda, this is my first chance to catch up with you, but I can tell you that you have been in my thoughts and prayers all week. You sound a little up and that's good to hear, although you can express any feeling you have and know that I am going to love and pray for you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that the sun will soon shine again. That snow! ughhh!
