Will it or Won't it?

  Will it or won't it snow in our area later tonight that is the question? One says that we will get snow and another says that it will just be rain. I don't want the freezing rain. 
    My picture is of my magnolia tree covered with a wet snow a couple of years ago. We have been lucky so far this year and not really had that much. 
   I survived my very busy weekend and was very tired when I got home about 8:30. The boys won their ball game 23-11. They played a good game and my grandson scored the first 4 points of the game. With them in the lead it put the pressure on the other team which made me happy. They weren't having to try to come from behind. It also showed what the boys have learned. They have learned to play every position with there only being 6 players. The chili fundraiser was for the coaches family. Their son has a health issue that is taking them to Arizona to get him help because its involving the brain. We ask for prayers for them. He is 11 years old. It is sad when you have the hospitals in your own area that can't help but brag about their doctors. Their little team all set at the table together talking and enjoying each others company. It has made them really close. 
   My youngest grandson took 1st at the Pinewood Derby at the church Saturday. They had an open race in which mom took 3rd, he took 2nd and dad took 1st. He is going to play ball this summer so I will ball gaming besides watching the boys ride. It will be a fun summer spent with the boys. This coming Saturday is the Pine wood Derby at the mall which there will be kids from all over the city will be racing their cars. I will go watch him. 
   One custom order is done, the second one will be done as soon as I finish the border on it,then on to the next. 
   It seems like I pick up the paper every day and see someone I know has died. I was at a graveside funeral Saturday morning and then I came home to see where my friend Gert lost her Tom. Needless to say I cried, it makes me think about my own with him being in the nursing home and what is going on with him at the moment. His ammonia level is down, but not near where it needs to be. We just keep praying and take every day that we get. We know that one of these days his liver will shut down.
   Weather permitting I will go see him tomorrow because it is his birthday. He was born on Ground 
Hog's Day. We always blame him if we have bad weather to tease him. He said that he was going to stop having birthdays. Of course this is leap year, we have a cousin that was actually borne on the 29th of February. We tell him he only gets to celebrate every four years. 
   It has been cloudy dreary damp day. What happen to the sunshine? If you have any would you share some and send it my way. I guess the nice December sorta spoiled us. 
    Well back to my custom order. Take care and if you are in the way of the storm they are predicting please be careful and safe.

I hope Mother Nature is kind to you.
It's fun to get to know your grandsons' friends. I hope the little boy can find the help he needs.
I know two men loosing their wives to ALS right now. I hate to see couples that have been together so long loose their partner.
My best friends having such a hard time right now after her loosing her husband in December.
I guess we count our blessings and move forward.
Hugs my friend.

What happened to the sunshine indeed!! We are waiting to see how much snow we get also. I am praying for the 11 year old. Happy Birthday to hubby. I hope he at least gets a cupcake.

Happy Birthday to your hubby! Hope the weather stays nice for you. The groundhog said an early spring. Congrats to your grandson and his team. I agree with you about so many people dying that you know. Seems like it's every week that someone I know passes. Too close to home for me!

Shirley, I want to wish your husband a happy birthday. I hope you get to be with him and hold him in your arms. Yes, I cried too when I read about Tom passing, it broke my heart for Gert. They were a beautiful couple. I had been praying he would get to come home to her...but I guess he just was too weak to make it.
Sounds like the grandboys are a busy bunch of kiddos. They love having you there to see them. How wonderful. I hope their friend will be helped by other doctors . Blessings to you sweet Shirley. Use caution when out and about. xoxo,Susie

If you got any snow, l hope it didn't cause many problems. We are getting some here....roads are slippery and I've heard of accidents. Thankfully I didn't have to go out. Sounds like those boys will keep you busy and young. Happy Birthday to your hubby!

Hi Shirley, hope you missed the bad weather. We got some rain last night here in mid-MO. It's going to be a lot colder tomorrow!
It sounds like you'll be busy with the boys activities. That is good and will be fun! Happy Birthday to your hubby and I hope he has a good day for it.
I was so sad to read about Gert's Tom. I was so hoping he would get better. I'm glad Gert has family to help her now.
Take care and stay well!

I will be keeping that young man in my prayers, maybe he is in need of a specialist in that area, Happy Birthday to your husband.

Gert said...

Oh Shirley, I hope your weather was favorable. And pray you got to go see your hubby today and enjoyed his birthday (wish him a late Happy Birthday from me)! If he were here with our Groundhog's Day Blizzard, I could blame him maybe?? Ha! Ha! We had gotten 11" at 6 p.m.!!!

My prayers went up for that young man and his family as they travel to get him medical help. Your grandchildren sound so busy, and even though you're tired what a blessing they are for you.

Happy Birthday to your husband! I hope he celebrated big. We've had warm beautiful weather over the weekend. Now a couple days of colder temperatures. But the warm weather will return next week. Makes me smile!! I hope you take good care of yourself.
