What is the reason?

Why are so many bloggers losing followers?
Is it a blogger thing....what changed? 
I never got any notices/ updates on change.
Did anyone???

Hope someone knows, could you please let me know.
Thank You!

Wouldn't this make a cute garden shed, chicken coop, playhouse etc!!!!
This sits on our property next door but moving it I think would be a hassle. I did go exploring in it and has some great stuff in it, not a lot but cool.

Great weathered wood and actually the inside is pretty tight and dry.
You can see it is sitting on 4 huge logs.

Sure glad that storm missed us in Michigan. I spent a couple hours outside today in the sunshine. Snow is melting and rid of nasty ice.
The full moon tonight should be beautiful.

~Enjoy the rest of your weekend~

How cute is this?

My cats Spunky and Jerry trying to keep each other warm yesterday.
Times like this I wish we had a wood burning stove to snuggle up to.
When I was a kid I grew up with steam heat, huge radiators in every room that wood hiss and pop but man were they warm and toasty on a freezing cold day.

Stay Warm

I know I am rushing it, but really, it won't be long now that January is more than half over!
Snow in our area has not been as bad as last year but bitter cold temps have taken over.

I know it sounds crazy but I have started buying mulch and soil already. Trying to space myself so don't spend all at once.
I have my list too of new plants to try this year.
A girl can dream right?


PS...I get my stitches out of my foot on Thursday and never had any pain. The pain was this wrap on my foot and trying to shower without getting it wet.

~Sitting around the Table~

I found this picture of my dining room posted on a Facebook page this morning and, oh my, this room has changed alot except for this table and chairs. This pic was taken Summer 2013  by A Primitive Place photo shoot here. 
This table has had many wonderful family get togethers through the years. It was actually handmade by my first cousins husband. I traded her this one for a smaller rounder table and 4 chairs that I was using. It looks pretty shiney in this picture but it is really not that bad. 
I still have the must cupboard that is a Sally Whims piece from Old Glory in Waynesville Ohio and getting ready to change my dining room around. The other pieces have pretty much been replaced.
I will never get rid of this table!

Are you like me, some items will never leave but easy to change out other pieces?

Meeting some friends for lunch today so I better start getting ready for the day.
Have a wonderful day?

Updated pics today and foot progress....

Bitter cold and winds today, can't go outside so use my energy cleaning and changing smalls around. I don't dare try to move big things right now although I want to really bad. Just my luck it would land on my healing toe. I got a good report and go back the 21st. to get my stitches out and good to go!
This is what I did this morning.

Valentine pinkeep

Had to bring out a touch of Spring!

Agh...picture does not do it justice.

Bear with a cold nose....Brrr

Toy that still works in original cute!
Found in estate here.

I really think I could drive now but should not get my incision wet so I will be a good girl and stay inside.
Thank you all for the well wishes and checking up on me.

Be happy!

My foot surgery was successful...yay

Surgery on my right foot to remove a very annoying bunion and had spurs of bone removed from my big toe.
So glad I had it done but had the worst reaction to IV sedation which has never happened before. Nausea, vomiting, headache, poor hubby had to make 2 trips to pharmacy. One dose of meds took away of vomiting but felt like crap, I did sleep well but got up this morning with allergic reaction. My face and neck is beet red so now take benedryl....argh.
I did not have to take any pain meds, just Advil just in case and have had zero pain in my foot.
I go back Monday for a dressing change and no driving for 2 weeks.

Spunky staying by my side and keeping me warm.
He is such a loving cat.

Enough of my Friday saga.
Enjoy your weekend friend!

Beautiful sunrise this morning.

Love sitting here and watching the sun come peaceful!

I have been having blog issues again too like many others.
I had to open up another window to post this picture.
I get comments but all of them not coming through and I have had zero new followers in a long time so don't think that is working either. As far as I can tell all my settings are fine.
I have had success with blogger help on issues before.
What to do?

I didn't make it to see the ball drop but Norm and I had a fun New Years day. I made a big breakfast and after cleaning up we took off for the day. We went to an estate sale in Lansing and Norm found his prized possesion ( his idea anyways) and I gave in. He deserves it  and it iactually doesn't look to bad really.  

Not too bad is it?
After we left the estate sale we went to the Mega Mall in Lansing.
I found 4 more sweet small funnels and a grungy tin box to use as a planter in my garden this year. 
Afterwards we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner, our favorite place to get a steak, melts in your mouth so tender!
When we got home took down the rest of the decorations and all done until next Christmas.

Sunset in the romm for you to see.
Today was beautiful sunny weather!!!!
Finally :0)

Time to get busy with more housework before it gets to dark and can't find my dust bunnies!
Have a wonderful evening.
