Funny Girl

Maddie calls me up at 8am this morning and said "Gommy, can I tell you something" and I say "sure Maddie you can tell me anything"(we do this routine many, many times...LOL....and I hope she always feels like she can tell me anything).  So than she tells me that a big ice storm is heading our way. OH NO....NOT AN ICE STORM!!!!......... I looked it up and it looks like it might hit Cincy on Tuesday night. I'm hoping they are wrong and it'll be too warm(hey I can hope, right??).  Here's a few pics of Maddie being silly and filling up my bird house to put back outside. She took this job very seriously and is very concern for the birds being out in the snow with no food.  Hope you all are having a great weekend. I went out to eat at one of my favorite places last night and I'm also going to the Cincinnati Art Museum this weekend to see the two centuries of wedding gowns exhibit.  How did I grow up in this wonderful city and have not taken advantage of our great art museum before?  And I noticed the Brenda Photo Challenge is up today so go here to see who's showing some great photos on their blog today!! Maybe one of these days I'll get my act together and show my photos again!! Happy Saturday!! I'm off to church tonight with my silly Maddie girl....hahaha...

Single Digit Days........

It's cold here in Cincy these days and you all know it wouldn't be Winter around here if I didn't do some weather whining............LOL I'm not a big fan of frigid cold weather or ice and snow on the roads. A few weeks I drove home from work in black ice and I had to pry my fingers from the steering wheel when I finally pulled into the garage after an hour and a half commute that usually only takes less than thirty minutes.
But in between all the snow and ice we took the grand kids to the Mall to run off some energy. Ha! I love these pictures from the food court, it looks like they are holding some big important business meeting. These three make me we ate at the food court and had some of those big giant pretzels they have there and everyone went home with alot of sugar in their bodies! Ha!

Anyway, I just wanted to show you what my backyard looked like last night while the snow was coming down and what it looks like today as the Sun comes out. The Sun is bright and shining but we are in the deep freeze. The tree has been up since early December and it is still in great shape. You can't really see it in these pics but it is now a Valentine Day's tree. I have heart ornaments on it and heart lights too. I wonder if it'll last to make it a St. Patrick's Day tree?? LOL I don't think it'll last till Easter. Stay warm and safe!!

If we could just ask our Magic 8 Balls....

A few weeks ago my kids and grandkids went to our favorite local pizza place to meet my Dad for dinner. At this restaurant they are smart enough to supply the kiddies with all kinds of fun items to keep them busy while they are waiting for their food and if you have ever been out with a couple of 2 year olds and a 4 year old, you know how important it is to keep them occupied while waiting for the food. :-) Well, this place has a supply of Magic 8 balls for the kids to play with and of course Gommy(me) had to play with them too. And as I was playing I was thinking "wouldn't it be nice, if we could just ask the Magic 8 ball about our future?" Questions like "Hey Magic 8 ball, will this be a good year for me?" The Magic 8 Ball has 20 different answers it could give you:
As I see it, yes
It is certain
It is decidedly so
Most likely
Outlook good
Signs point to yes
Without a doubt
Yes – definitely
You may rely on it
Reply hazy, try again
Ask again later
Better not tell you now
Cannot predict now
Concentrate and ask again
Don't count on it
My reply is no
My sources say no
Outlook not so good
Very doubtful

I looked up the Magic 8 Ball on Wikipedia and it says 10 of the answers are affirmative, 5 are negative and 5 are non I'm guessing you have a better chance of getting an affirmative answer. But I know life doesn't come with a Magic 8 Ball to tell us what's going to happen in this New Year and you guys have been around my blog long enough to know what I believe and WHO I believe is in charge of my life. So do I know what this year will hold for me, my Magic 8 Ball answer would be "very doubtful" but if I ask " do I believe HE has it all under control for me?", my Magic 8 Ball answer says "Without a Doubt"...............
