Pat, I live in a small mining/tourist that has been dying since the mines closed. Tourism isn't enuff to sustain the economy so we lose a lot of young people going elsewhere to find a good job. we have a chance for a new mine but the environmentalists from the big cities are against us and have tied everything up in the courts. We are very close to the Canadian border and we get a lot of the cold from Canada. This morning it is 29 degrees and is trying to clear up. Yesterday was so nice til the wind started and it was too strong to rake etc. This week temps are low, rain or winter mix of rain/snow are predicted. We have had so much rain, wind and cool temps the people begin to feel depressed. My daffodils are blooming, hope they survive, they are strong, tulips are up. I can hear the birds singing but sure not warm temps for them either. Robin posted on my fiber page and said she is not allowed on our Reader's team. I feel badly that she thinks she is not welcome, not sure what happened to make her feel that way. No one should feel that way about a team on Sparks. I am taking the day off, just need to back up and plan how to start again. I still haven't been able to correct the problem on my Ipad. Now they tell me i can't use my email address because it is already being used. I am the one using it but I don't know how to fix it. So frustrating. My son is going to try and come this morning and fix it. He has a lot to do caring for his son after the accident but if the older son isn't at work he steps in with his mom to care for Brandon so Bob can get here. If he can't that is ok. He has been so much help to me. My oldest granddaughter, Shannon, is good with these things and has a friend who is also very good so eventually I hope to get back. It won't take my email address and is blocking me from sending messages ti the kids. You sound like you are stressed a lot of the time, something like me, we need to take time and do things we can relax with. I love to read but put it last on the list and I shouldn't. We need to put us first and then we can relax and help others if need be. I will stryggle with the fiber but will join again later. Have a great day!!
More to do than hours in the day. I am so far behind in email but such is life. Now that the lawn has grown up and the garden needs the mulch, I have to focus on the things at hand. But I do not forget my Spark Friends. HUGS! 1 day ago
