54 days and counting …

down to Spring.  I am up and moving this morning.  I feel much better after several days with the heating pad and lazing around doing nothing.  I had my breakfast of raisin bran, banana and milk.  I don’t drink coffee anymore and stay away from caffeinated stuff if I can.

It is cloudy and 34 degrees  this morning to reach to 41 by afternoon. 

I was presented an award today from Mary.  This is a great honor Mary.  Thank you so much!

Liebster Award--Abby

"Liebster" means favorite or beloved in German, and this award helps to draw attention to blogs that aren't too well known.

Here are the rules for this award:

Upon receipt of the award, one is to:

1) Link back to the blogger who gave it

2) Paste the award on the blog

3) Choose 5 blogs to pass this award to (they must have fewer than 200 followers)

4) Let the recipients know about their nomination by leaving a comment on their blogs.

This is a hard thing for me to choose 5 blogging friends.  I am going to pick the ones that have the fewest followers and I want the rest of my readers to know that I love you all.

  1., Arlene, my dear friend in England who entertains us all with tails (yes pun intended) of the adventures she has with her dogs.
  2. Annie, one of my newer blogging friends who shares the the great state of Illinois (warts and all) with me.
  3., Boston boy, my adopted little brother who is a very nice guy with a very entertaining gutsy blog.
  4. Nancy, my Missouri friend, who lives with pain on a daily basis.
  5., one of my newest blogging friends who has shown me what a kind compassionate person she is.

Please all of you pick up your award.

Off to the wars now (computer shopping I think as mine is acting mean) and to the grocery store.  You all stay safe and be happy.



  1. Congrats Sis on your new award..very appropriate because you are beloved by all of us
    and our favorite too. Hope your day goes well. Take care : )

  2. Congrats on your award. :)
    41 sounds so warm! Hope you have a super day!!

  3. Congrats on the award. You deserve it. Foggy morning to start here but clearing up now.

  4. Thanks for all the good blog references. I did go over and looked at all of them. Very good blogs and I'm following a couple of them. It's always fun meeting new bloggers.

  5. Thank you Beth for giving me an award. I will paste and give it to five bloggers too. No time today. Glad you are felling better. Your blog is a Liebster blog for sure.

  6. First, let me say that I am so HAPPY to hear you ate your breakfast....and that you are feeling better. I am late checking blogs this morning because I watched Tangled with my granddaughters....this is a WONDERFUL, funny movie with such beautiful music....and it looks so real....and you will love the horse, really. If you have a video rental place near, go check it out and enjoy yourself, escaping into a colorful world for and hour and thirty minutes. You won't regret it.

    Next, let me say when I read your comment about me here, I broke down and bawled like a baby, and my hubby was in the other room calling out asking me what in the world was wrong, and when I couldn't answer, he told me he couldn't help me unless I told him what was wrong. Let me just tell you I am humbled. Thank you so very much for that kind, kind comment. I just love blogging....I have made so many wonderful friends, who stay on my mind and in my prayers just like I knew them. I thank the Lord for you all. :)

  7. I just went to my blog to try to figure out how to accept this award and follow the rules....I saw your comment just now....Cindy....that's my name.

  8. Twin, I am SO glad you're feeling more like it today. You have been dragged thru a knot hole backward!


  9. Had my turn with the heating pad this week as well...time for a new mattress I I'm in the mood for some raisin bran!
    Blessings, JOanne

  10. Oh Beth thank you so much. It will be tough to pick 5 people from my friends list as I don't get all that many comments and half the people on my list have never commented on my blog or haven't posted anything.I'll look at my list and see if I can pick five. If I can then I will happily accept this, most of all because it's coming from you. You're the best Beth!

  11. Thanks Beth!! (Did I tell you that I grew up in a little German farming community down here? LOL)

    I'm feeling pretty crummy still, and just sneezed all over my keyboard!! YUCK!!!!!

  12. Congrats on the much deserved award, Beth.
