Saturday's Travels

First I must tell you that I borrow the card to use on my blog from the Two Crazy Crafters. They have a wonderful blog and if you haven't visited you really should. Wednesday's is Barbie Wednesday and it brings back the memories of the barbie dolls. During February they had such wonderful Vintage Valentine's.
Now for my Saturday travels. We went to breakfast at my husband's favorite restaurant. They have foreign planes in going to school here and believe me they learned about our snow and all of the other elements.
Afterwards I need to pick up his insulin needles and test strips. Boy did I ever get a shock. I had to pay over a 130.00 for his test strips. I know we have a deductible with the hospital part, but I didn't know that medicare had a deductible with the prescription D. Part. It didn't make sense then I was told I would maybe get a refund in two or three weeks. After that I decided that I would take my paycheck to the bank. It was a pretty day and the sun was shining and my hubby wanted out of the house. They are building so many wind farms up in northern Missouri. I was amazed how many new ones have been built since we went that way the last time. Even with all of the snow that we have had. I read an article that said they had 22,000 acres they are using. It could be, but that part I am not so sure.
We got back home from that drive and he decided he wanted to go to this hobby shop that is in Kansas City. Well we went, but came home empty handed. We are looking for odorless model glue for him because our son with chemical asthma is coming to stay with us for a while and I don't want to cause him an asthma attack. When we got home from that drive I told him we were staying home. I was tired of driving for today.
The sun has felt so good today even if we only got in the high 30's. It just makes you feel better when you see the sun shine. Of course, the first day of Spring is suppose to be March 20Th. It will be interesting to see what we have then after all of the snow. The only state that managed to escape it was Hawaii and they aren't so sure there wasn't some in the high elevations.
I was so glad to get home from yesterday. It was statement day and we were short handed. I managed to get it done and to take care of the downstairs while the deliveries were being made. It was a little hectic, but it can be accomplished if you set your mind to it. I just know I was tired.
Everybody take care and enjoy what is left of your weekend.

It got up to almost 48 here and that was heaven compared to what we have had. The snow is finally melting!

Have a lovely Sunday my friend,

Ohhhhh the sunshine, I just love those days and it looks like we are having some today after a snowy few days. It will probably melt everything now.

I love Twyla and Lyndseys blog too, lots of fun :)

Hi Shirley! Thanks for stopping by our new blog during the Vintage Alphabet. You had a busy day. Glad you got some sunshine. It's still bleak here in Ohio, but at least we get some springtime here in the shop.
Hope you stop by again.

Hi Shirley! Thanks for visiting my blog through the Vintage "B" in Etsy Cottage Style. I love the boots, too. Since I live here in Arizona, and the old west is all around, I have done my great room in western style. I don't have much shabby chic or cottage style (bedroom only) in my home, but my antique booth in a local mall is all girlie, shabby, vintage, pink and my place to play with it.

Must say that I am glad to be in the desert southwest right now. I spent a few days in Virginia just after their "snowmageddon" and I couldn't wait to get home! Even tho I love my grandkids and love to visit. But not when the temp hovers around 35 degrees during the day. Too cold for this desert dweller! (((smile))) Visiting in February -- dumb idea!

Glad you visited my blog! Thanks!
