    My Kind Of Weather 

    It’s a blessed morning here with my faithful cat close by.
    She got me up about 7:15 after persisting in her catly way.
    We have cold temps here in Dixie, 33 degrees and I guess
    my flowers will be caput. I started bringing them in(just one
    oblong pot) and placing them on the top of an organizer, Big
    mistake as I saw this tiny bug, so out they went.
    All for now, gotta make breakfast. God-willing, we’ll see y’all later.
    Blessings All.

      Hi, Sheila, thanks for visiting with a comment. We’re having a little warm up today to 72…yippee! but I’m not complaining about the cold, I feel better with a little nip in the air.

      Before we know it, those little bugs will all be gone and everything will be “white” with snow and we will miss those little bugs! I miss the flowers in the winter, but love seeing everything covered in snow….And I’m a “Dixie” girl who grow up without snow most winters!

    Do I Look Happy??..Pffsssstt….Kassey 

    Do I Look Happy??..Pffssssttt…….Kassey

    Yesterday was an awful day. Mom said we had tornadoes coming and she

    cleaned out our closet. I always dread that hot closet and this is what she did
    to me. I’m a good girl but she said she had to put me in this thing. We did go
    into the closet for a few minutes, but it seemed like the tornado was gonna
    miss us again this time. She let me out for awhile as I had a snack and made
    a potty trip. Well, I had to be put in this thing again as the tornadoes kept
    coming and we had to be ready for the closet. She told me she was sorry
    that she had to do this. Oh well, at least I didn’t have to go to the dreaded
    vet and we were blessed yet again.

    Not Begging To Go Out Today….Kassey 

    Last night Mom had to turn off her big toy and unplugged it too.

    So after we went to ‘our’ bedroom, I sat in the window for

    a few minutes. I got on the bed and she moved it some more

    closer to the closet. Well, it really started getting noisy with

    all the booms and flashing. She had already moved my ‘sunny

    spot’ bed away from the window thinking I might want to sleep

    there. Mom always tries to stay one step ahead, but I don’t care

    where my bed is when I’m sleepy. It’s booming some and water

    falling again. That’s OK  I’m safe on my recliner today and Mom

    is watching the sky with her webcam. She said the sky looks bad,

    don’t know if we’ll have to head for the closet.

    Last night, the little thing in the window sounded an alarm and

    Mom got up to see what the message was and it started talking

    about T-storms here, so she turned it off and we came back to bed.

    The next time, she just let it alarm ’til it quit.

    With all the water falling today, I won’t beg to go out.

    Blessings to  everyone…….Kassey

      I feel for you sweeety! Whenever we get noise lie that here, I have to hide in my favorite spot….under my owners son’s computer desk! He takes good care of me and even lets me sit on his lap if I get too scared….

        Hi, Arlene, thanks for visiting. I had to have help on here from Technogran. How are doing on here?

    • Fuzzy and Zoe 7:35 pm on October 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Goodness, Miss Kassey, we’re glad you’re ok!! Are you nervous when there are storms and boomies? It doesn’t phase us a bit. That’s probably a really good thing, since storms and boomies are pretty common in Oklahoma!

      We hope your bad weather is all gone now!

      Your friends, Fuzzy and Zoe

    Nothing Important 

    It’s another sunny cool day, 50’s, 78, expected.

    Yesterday we had T-storms and I’m so glad it

    quit before DWTS came on . I did not want to

    miss that one and I’m so happy that Bristol has

    another chance.

    Kassey was happy to watch some birds before

    her nap. She was a bit whiney as children some-

    times are when it’s nap time. So she finally nestled

    in on her  recliner. Of course I’ve been nestled in

    on this thing since I got up. I’ve not posted lately

    so I thought I better check in. I did finally get

    Amy’s video posted on YouTube and the update

    is on my profile page.  I visited with my new

    neighbor yesterday and she said she used to blog

    and she hasn’t found her computers yet. She’s got

    her work cut out for her with all the unpacking.

    Enough of nothing important, so y’all have a

    blessed day/night.

      Hello ggb,

      Hi, Marji, thanks for visiting. I haven’t been on your WP yet, I don’t think. All I get is the Gravatar page which I know nothing about. Do you have the WP yet? don’t recall right now…

      Hello again
      Yes I have got a blog now. It is
      I usually get to you by going through Messenger, but I don’t know how long I will be able to do that.
      Have a great weekend.
      Take care Marjie x

      Hi, Marjie, I think the only way to connect after messenger connect is click on ‘subscribe by email’ and it lets us know and we can go to that WP blog. That’s how Robyn does it. We can’t leave a comment on her blog. I wonder if they will delete our hotmail too. Technogran should know.

    • Marjie(MeMyself) 2:13 pm on October 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Hello again,
      Hopefully they will leave Messenger and Hotmail alone. Can you leave a message on your friend Robyn’s blog if you are logged in ? I find that I get a message on some Profiles that says” not available,” but when I log in to Windows there is no problem. I guess we will get there in the end !

    Friday Stuff…Amy Too 

    Friday Stuff…Amy Too

    I was able finally to change the time on WP. I did what Beth told me
    and followed through . Thanks , Beth
    This is a still shot I was able to extract from the video I could not add. A banana
    just wasn’t enough. She went for it 3 times…lol
    I quickly watered my flowers and returned to the heat. TN son called about 5:00 AM.
    He had been off work for awhile and said they might come down this weekend.  He
    always tells me he loves me and said for me to tell Kassey that he loves her too. I told
    her of course. He was on the speaker phone and she was in the bedroom window
    listening…ahem, eavesdropping. It’ll be interesting to see how things go with the blinds
    and Kassey. I’m hoping they do come, been too long. Gotta turn the heat back now
    so guess that’s all for now. Blessings Always….

      Hi GreatGranny Bee, I’ve finally found you. I’m sort of blindly finding my way around here. It’s confusing to say the least.
      I hope you come and visit my WP. I’ve subscribed to your WP now.

    Laughing At Me , but relieved 

    I know I’m slow sometimes catching on.

    OK, I’ve been disturbed  because I thought

    the calender was wrong. Well, not so. I noticed

    the calender on Margie’s page and saw that the

    week starts on Monday. So here I am laughing

    at myself  for not seeing this before. I have to

    wonder why the calender is set up this way. I

    need ‘simple’ all the way and as we all know, it

    is anything but simple since being evicted

    from WL.

      This is my 3rd attempt at trying to leave you a reply to this, so if you get all 3 messages ignore 2 of them !!! My observations on the calender is that it does not identify the current day, but darkens on the date that I had/have written anything. Really not sure if I like this site very much, but will at least give it a chance.

        Hi, Marjie, I went back to the setup page and finally got the time set to a city that I thought had the same time zone and that fixed the time and I also had to click on whether I wanted my week to start on Sunday or Monday. I clicked on Sunday and that fixed it…..Are you on WP yet?

        • Marjie(MeMyself) 5:01 am on October 18, 2010 Permalink

          Hi greatgrannybee !
          Yes I am on WP now, struggling a bit but hopefully will get there in the end. I still use Messenger to try to get to My Friends, which works ok at the moment, but if they take my friends list off of there I don’t know how I will find you. Hope that you are well x

      We’ll get it right yet, just will take time so much to ingest after we thought we were all settled in and comfy with WLS. Such as life, always learning, but sometimes I rather not, but that is not to be, lol At least we know we’re not alone, so good you can laugh at ourselfs. Have a Great Day, to be warm all next week, then back to cold.

    Cloudy Wednesday, etc 

    Yesterday and last night we had scattered thunderstorms with

    lightening. I moved my sofa away from the window and Kassey

    was safe in her recliner by the counter.  The bed is now by the

    window so I waited until the storm passed. I will repostion the

    bed again today, God-willing. It’s cloudy and I have to go out

    sometime today, probaby Walmart, Walgreen’s, CVS. All are

    pretty close to each other. Oh and Kmart . I usually go to Publix

    with Bettye, but not today, too much running in a different area

    of town. That’s all for now…..Blessed day to all.

    Dashboard Is Here Now 

    It certainly has been stressful having this blog site.

    But, maybe it’s shaping up so I can use it again. I

    have no clue what happened here, however I’ll think

    about blogging here. I really like  blogspot so much

    better as it’s so easy to navigate. I appreciate Techno-

    gran’s help. It was she who got me this far. Thank you,

    Technogran….October 10, 2010, Sunday Central where I am
