Another day of snow in our area but nothing like the North and East Coast has. I know I live in tornado alley, but I would much sooner take my chances there then have all of the snow like Boston and some of the other areas. The picture is not here, but one that I liked.
I am staying home today and working on my quilt. It is almost finished and I am hoping to have it done by the weekend. I know it is going to a new home, but I almost wish I could keep this one. Oh!well, I can always make another one if I want.
Basketball season came to an end this past Saturday. I think they were tired. It is asking a lot of ten year olds to play three games or more in one day. One day they played four. He is already looking forward to hanging with grandma this summer. I don't exactly what we will do, but it will be a fun summer. They did away with the program that he has been doing.
My picture of my parents is kinda fuzzy, but this was the last time that all my brothers and sisters were together. After that it always seemed as though we were missing someone.
We still try to get together once a year at least, but so many health issues. It is the pits as we age why can't we just stay young.
The snow reminds me of the coasting parties that we use to have when I was growing up. We went to a one room school house with all the grades in one big room. We took our sleds and would go coasting at lunch time. Those were the days that we might make it back in before time to go home. The old er kids helped the younger ones while the teacher worked with others. We had so much fun.
We even used my mother's wash tub, a scoop shovel, or a piece of tin to coast on. We would get in trouble for that especially when one of my brothers couldn't turn the piece of tin and hit the barb wire fence. He had to have a few stitches, but we still did it again. When we moved closer to town later we always had a bunch of friends at our house. Mom had cookies and hot chocolate when we came inside for all of us. They always said that if they were at our house they knew what we were doing.
We walked on top of snow drifts to school. I can even remember doing that to go home one year for Christmas. It is amazing what we did and the kids today think they have to be taken everywhere. Those special childhood memories can never be taken away. I even think about when we moved from farm to another. It was always cold and snowy.
I will be glad when this week is over. We have doctor appointments. One for hubby and one for me. Mine is my annual that I have to do once a year. Just what I want to do, but I know that it is necessary. Hubby's is to see if they can do anything to help his right leg. He says that he will accept whatever he is told even if they say it is something he just has to live with. I just don't think that pain pills or cortisone shots are the answer. I still think if he could get heat packs they would be more helpful. Oh!well so much for that.
Thursday evening I will find out the horse show schedule for the summer. I am looking forward to that watching the boys and the other kids ride. It is just one big family. I get introduced as grandma and called that by a lot of kids who are my adopted grandchildren. It is fun and I don't mind a bit.
Prayers for all of those in need. Try to stay warm and safe if you have to be out in this crazy weather. Those warm days spoiled us. Take care.
