~ Top O' the Marnin' to Ye on Saint Pat's Day! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sunday, Sunday... I think it is Sunday and also Saint Patricks Day but no Corned Beef and Cabbage
First Year I haven't done that in a while but just didn't get around to buying my Corned Beef
How about a re-run of my try in 2018?

~ Corned Beef and Cabbage 2018 ~

Ohhhhhhh, lookeee at that Bright Sun out there! Gonna be warm too?
Well a gorgeous Morning for the Saint Patrick's Day Parade in Kansas City... that I have never attended in person
But you can see a lot more of the Parade on the TV in a lot more comfort... and not hunting for a parking place

Well now, they say it is flooding again down in English Landing Park, got lots of Video of earlier ones
Well, when they get a lot of Rain up North, that big River gets kind of full now and then
I don't think I have to run down there to see it again right away

~ Water almost into the Park ~

And, doodling around on the Computer with this and that until 10 a.m.
Time to get with the Program, have some of that fresh Apple Sauce with buttered Toast
And get out there and go Treasure Hunting using some of those full Pack Winners

So I headed down to the Fast Stop again to trade in $25 worth of Winners for $25 worth of Losers
Then a lot of talk again with Navru and Customers, finally Home to think about things
And thinking... Well, Corned Beef is on the biggest Sale of the Year on this Date... so...
Back to the Price Chopper for Carrots, Cabbage and Corned Beef, back home and the Beef in the Pot at 2 p.m.

~ Boyle's Famous Kansas City Corned Beef ~ Into the Crock Pot ~

And then... Peeled Potatoes, Carrots, Chopped Celery and Onions and Cabbage... Set it aside
Then let the Corned Beef slow cook while I did my Afternon TV thing, then on to the Movie
I would check the Beef every two Hours or so, flip it over in the Pot, looking good after a couple hours
And then after 4 Hours at 6 p.m. Into the Pot with the Veggies to finish with the Beef

And finished my Movie at 8:30 p.m. Time for Dinner? Yep, the Crock Pot said Done, had set itself to 'Hold Warm'
Dished up a Plate, found another old TV Serial Episode and had my St. Pat's Dinner at 9 p.m. and then off to bed

~ Sunday ~ Twas a bit of a busy Saint Patrick's Day ~



~ Saturday, March 16, 2019 ~
~ Sunny Mornng ~ I Like That! ~
~ Warmer Day! ~ I Like that Too! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Radish Plants getting Spindly ~

Saturday Morning, kind of a chill in the Office Room, did it get cold? Lemmee look...
Brrrrrr, says 28 Degrees at 8 a.m. Yep, I'll turn the heat up a notch...
But they say it will be Sunny and head to 56, now that's nice, should have warmer Days in March

And first thing, last thing Friday Night was that Band-Aid on my arm to stop the bleeding
Popped off the Band-Aid and the minor wound was still kind of oozing a little, on with another Band-Aid
I guess that 'Warfarin' really is a 'blood thinner' and my dose was too high, they say that Drug can be dangerous

So, Blog updated and Posted, let's get some Coffee and work my Puzzles and check my Email
And what's that noise out front? Flipped on the Window Cam, Emily out there scraping her Car Windows!
WHAT? We have Icy Windows on March 15th... Caramba! Que Pasa? Well maybe the Sun will take care of that for me


OK, Morning stuff all done, where we gonna get our Saturday Lottos, I think it is Navru's turn again
I headed down the Hill again to see my buddy from Uzbekistan, he was in a happy Saturday Mood
So we had a lot of chat and It was a busy Customer Day, lots of chat with them too as they came and went
Finally got my Lottos and headed back, only scratched off a couple of $5 Winners, Nutz!...
Bored again, what to do? Decided to go back and get a full Pack of Lottos, I know you only win about half back
But what the heck! That BIG one may be hiding in that pack, biggest I ever got in a pack though was a $100

So I headed back, got a Pack of 'I Love Lucy' Tickets, headed for Home for a half Hour of scratching

~ Happy Saturday Lotto Win ~

Biggest one in that Pack was a $75 Win, got a total of $190 in Wins, just so-so for the Pack
But now I can use that $190 in Wins to see if I can win some more big ones, just a game ya know

And that was about it for Saturday, later made some Apple Sauce for Breakfast for Sunday
Then got a Call from Clay-Platte Clinic about my Appointment Monday, yeah I already have that on my Calendar
So just head for the TV then and wait for bedtime... Ho Hummm...

~ Saturday ~ Nothing much Special ~

Friday again, where did this Week go? Was the Weather nice, did we have fun?
I'll have to read my Blogs to find out, I sure can't remember... What Day is this anyway?
And another Doctor Appointment, what for? This one just popped up on my Phone
Must be just another follow up on my 'Vitals'... My Primary likes to have me poked a lot

And... What's the Weather... Huh... Not so good, colder... 32 Degrees at 7 a.m.
Only heading to 48 but mostly Sunny, well maybe we can stand that a while

And so... Let's try my Friday Luck at the Price Chopper... Traded in a $5 Win, bought $30 more
And back in that Sunshiny Day to work out exactly NOTHING! That just will not do
So headed back out and the Weather warming nicely, yeah, this time down the Hill to the Fast Stop
Hola and Dubra Dien and gimmee some Lottos, and I traded in $25 worth of Cash for some paper Tickets
Back this time to scratch off a $15 and $5 Win, a loss of $5 more, Hah! Lost $35 for the Day

On through the Day until Doctor Time... Appointment at 2;45 p.m. Left Home at 2:20
Checked in at 2:35 and waited, Called in at 3 p.m. Nurse check and then the Doctor wait
And the Doctor waltzed in at 3:30 ready to go! Some catch up talk, Some advice, sent me to get poked
In the Lab I got my poke and that time painless! Packed up and headed Home, and Home after 4:15 p.m.

On to the rest of the Day, TV News, Weather catch up, Movie and Music until Finale Time
I did get a Phone Call from the Doctors Office, the Nurse reporting on my 'Blood Thinner' check
She said it was too high, to stop it entirely and come in Monday for another check on the dose

And then later, I saw she was right, I had a little bump on my arm, picked at it like I shoudn't have
It began to bleed, quite a bit for such a little bump, so I put a Band-Aid on it for the night

And that was just about it for Friday, Huh? The Weekend here already Well, 'Good Night Irene... Good Night'

~ Friday ~ Bizzy Enuff Almost ~

~ Cloudy but no Rain ~
~ Not much going On ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Pepper Crop still Growing ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Lessee now, I think it is Thursday? Time does so fly... when yer having fun...
It sure does for me, even when I am not having all that much, we're halfway through March already
I have a bit of a gripe though, lately I am having more pain than fun, like to find a cure for that

Nice Weather Day on Wednesday, I think that big woman creature on Fox 4 was warning about something last night
Lemmee take a look... Aha! Don't look bad to me, 41 now at 8 a.m. and heading to 59 or so
But... Cloudy,had enough of that... just gimmee some Sunshine pleeeze!

And what's the Plan for the Day? Don't know yet, just saw a short review ofmy February on Facebook
I'll just make a little Video of that to show the World... Hang on, I'll work on that with my Coffee
OK, that took maybe 15 Minutes, wanna see it? Oh? Oh well I'll post it anyway, I like my cutie Videos


OK, now what? Coffee's gone, time to work my Puzzles... And that done, time for Breakfast
And in the Kitchen, look at the lost Morning Glory Vines, got side tracked and don't know where to to go

~ How do I get outta Here? ~

~ We want a String to Climb! ~

And those Radishes, going to do anything? Who cares, fun to watch them try
I think they would do better with some Sun instead of these Grow Lights

~ Radishes on the Way ~

Off on that Windy Cloudy but not way too cold Day to the Price Chopper, had money to throw away
Cashed in $20 worth of Winners, Bought $30 more tries, headed back Home, and still windy and cloudy and phooey
Popped open a Glucerna and worked my Lottos, Hah a $15 Win and then a $10 win
Lessee, is that a $5 loss, or did I win enough last time to make that a profit? Who bothers to keep track?

Drifting on to 2 p.m. Looks like that is all the action for another boring Day
Time to put a couple Chicken Legs in the Oven to hot up, then chop up, make a BBQ Chickie Sammich
Add a dish of Tater Salad, that should do for TV Time later... Oh... got some Apples, maybe make some Apple Sauce?
Yeah, that would go good for Breakfast on Friday, Huh?

~ Thursday ~ So so Exciting! ~
