Let the rain come at any time.

When it gets colder, the less I want to leave my nest. Some say we’ll see snow and sleet before spring.

A few are saying taking cinnamon tablets daily is lowering or eliminating their diabetes. Cranberry tablets are out in pill form to fight urinary infections.
Other better-health wannabes are not buying anything with added chemicals or additives of any kind.

A popular topic again is the weather. We awake and wonder what the outside will reveal. Rain is the favorite!

There’s a coughing virus going around our community. Hoarseness, even nausea, can accompany this malady. Remember Vick’s Salve? Get it out for use – some say coat the feet on it and sleep with socks. One friend spent Christmas Day in his bed, too ill to eat or think about gifts.

News has come that Roberta Staples died in early December in a nursing home. Once

Here we go – another year!

Some are still coughing after having viruses or infections in the breathing department. Of course, we still need rain, but I’ve seen water standing as we call it in fields and ditches, a rare sight.

Was your New Year Eve’s celebration wild or mild. We usually hit in between. At

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” The weather played havoc with residents’ Christmas decorations in yards during Sunday night’s rain, but we’ll rebuild.
In our situation, once we had the funds to decorate and not spend on young children, we were too old to get the job done. My tree becomes smaller each year. I don’t like packing items up afterward by myself regardless of promises of help.

Malakoff and Trinidad have lost a dear lady, Betty Jean Williams Matthews Inman, 84, who was in CCNursing and

Thanksgiving has come and gone, Black Friday went off as expected, and we are into the Christmas Season of 2011. I don’t know where to start – cards, gifts, decor, cookie making, or baskets of surprises.

As I’m an adult with the syndrome that fights order and organization, I’ll most likely do a little each day.

The Trinidad Methodist Church wants to invite everyone

Counting blessings can be an eye-opener. Some of mine are making an appearance now, before Thursday arrives. A grandson, 12, will be out of his school for the week and has come on a Sunday night to visit Gramp and Grump and to try out my apnea machine for CPAP (and I thought this machine would scare them). Some have asked to play with the breath reliever before.
