Storm Rolling In

    It sounds as though the wind has died down from earlier this evening. The temperature has dropped a good 30 degrees and they are saying we will still get some snow tonight. Yesterday in the 70's, today 60's, it is unreal. I just know the wind has been howling.The C-130's from across the river are flying tonight. There is several different countries in here for school. I guess they are learning how to fly in this kind of weather. They went right over the house. If the wind is just right, you can hear them warming up the engines. We had fighter planes in this week. You never know what will land at our air port. 
     My friend who has MS has been unable to work this week so I have been filling in for her at the office. I feel so sorry for her. They are now talking of giving her three days of steroid IV's to see if that will help. I just do what I can, I keep praying for a miracle that will cure a lot of diseases. 
    I went to the nursing home this afternoon and took hubby outside so that he could get some fresh air. It wasn't as warm as yesterday, but he still enjoyed his once around the parking lot. It is also a way of talking without being over heard. The wind changed to the north and the temperature started dropping as I headed home. I went by the funeral home before I came all the way home. One of our friends passed away that I worked with her husband for a lot of years  long ago. They watch my kids grow up. They died almost within a year of each other.
    I am sorry I have been missing from blogland, but I have had a lot on my plate since we went to see the doctor. We go for an Ultrasound on Monday which is St. Pat's. They want to see what is going on. I know that his blood sugar is all over the board. One day high and the next day low. It just makes you wonder if his liver is working at all. I try to stay positive, but at times it is awfully hard to do. I did get a copy of the lab work. Not much different then the last one. 
    Myrtle Turtle is just about ready to be added to my shop along with a new Miss birdie and cow. The hands have been very busy. I just need a change of scenery to keep the mind occupied by other things. This weekend is the Blue and Gold Banquet for my youngest grandson. The other two will be at the State 4H horse judging contest. My oldest will be competing with 4 others all girls excepting him. Little brother gets to hang out with mom. He is going swimming for one thing and I don't know what else. Dad is going to be with the oldest. 
    Enough just this and that, but I wanted to let you know I am still here, just busy. I will pop in as time allows. Maybe things will get back to being a little more normal. I hope at least. Take care. Stay safe and warm.

Hi Shirley.
Your posts are always so interesting and newsy. I do enjoy stopping in. I'm keeping you and hubby both in prayer.
We have had some beautiful days here in the 60's and 70's, but we're in for a cold and rainy day over the next day or two. I'll be glad when spring weather is here to stay.
You have a good rest of the week and I do hope that they find some help for your hubby.

Dear Sweet Missouri Friend it's friends like you that keep my going every day.
Reading your post and all the sad things going on with you is one reason I hated to blog when I was so depressed because others have it harder than myself. I just hate it when I get in this state of mind.
I think of you and your sweet hubby often and I always have you in my prayers.
Thank you for coming by tonight and leaving me such a precious comment. It meant a lot to me and I so appreciate you for taking the time to remind me of how lucky I am to have good friends like yourself.
Every time I play the silly Candy Crush game I see your name on the bottom of the one I am on now that I can't get off of to save my life. You are number one on it and how you got such high points on that level is amazing. hahaha
I wish I could hand you my phone and let you clear it for me so I could move to another game.
I hope the temps stay warm for you and that ours will too. Like you some days it is 40's next it might be 70. I will take all the 70's God blesses us with.
You are right I do have the wedding in October and knowing that has kept me going these past few months. I am though stressed over the price of it but thats okay things have a way of working out.
Thanks Shirley for being such a good friend and know I pray for you and yours every night.
Love ya
