Beautiful Day...

Evening Bloggers,

Beautiful day today. I took Franco and Paco for a walk. My God...I am training them to walk with me instead of running...what a chore. But it was a good walk.

Tomorrow I want to get my new bike out. I think I will just ride around the bowling alley parking lot till I get use to turning corners. Falling on my butt will not look pretty.

If you have some faith in you please keep my co-worker in your prayers. She had a double knee replacement, but on top of that, her husband is in the hospital the second time since April 22, since the day she had her surgery. He had two strokes about a week before she went in. They are very good people and need the power of prayer to get through their rough times.

Peace Out!

Love and Peace!

Morning Bloggers,

I just want to comment on hatred.

Being from the hippie generation I just don't understand it.

There are certain areas places you should not display your hatred for people. If you are not happy with someone make it private and personal, keep it to yourselves.

My theory is if that person should die today will you miss them or attend their funeral and display false emotions with tears and a bunch of I should haves.

Life is to short, when you hurt family or friends feelings, you don't just hurt them, you hurt everyone.

Try to keep peace...

Peace Out!

First cousin, removed....

To Paula and Kim,

I found this on the internet...

A term often found in genealogy is "removed," specifically when referring to family relationships. Indeed, almost everyone has heard of a "second cousin once removed," but many people cannot explain that relationship. Of course, a person might be more than once removed, as in third cousin, four times removed.
In short, the definition of cousins is two people who share a common ancestor. Here are a few definitions of cousin relationships:

First Cousin: Your first cousins are the people in your family who have at least one of the same grandparents as you. In other words, they are the children of your aunts and uncles.

Second Cousin: Your second cousins are the people in your family who share the same great-grandparent with you.

Third, Fourth, and Fifth Cousins: Your third cousins share at least one great-great-grandparent, fourth cousins share a great-great-great-grandparent, and so on.

Removed: When the word "removed" is used to describe a relationship, it indicates that the two people are from different generations. "Once removed" indicates a difference of one generation, "twice removed" indicates a difference of two generations, and so forth.

For example, the child of your first cousin is your first cousin, once removed. That is, your cousin's child would be "almost" your first cousin, except that he or she is one generation removed from that relationship. Likewise, the grandchild of your first cousin is your first cousin, twice removed (two generations removed from being a first cousin).

Many people confuse the term "first cousin, once removed" with "second cousin." The two are not the same.

So to put it into our family: 
Grace and I (Judy) are first cousins because our parents are brother and sister and we share the same Grandmother and Grandfather.

Paula and Sammy are the next generation after ours which makes them my first cousins, once removed, because we still share the same grandparents but they are actually Paula and Sammy's Great Grandparent.

Shannon, Jennifer and Danielle are the next generation after Paula and Sammy which makes them first cousins, twice removed, because we share the same grandparents, but Shannon, Jennifer and Danielle are the great great grand children.

Basically...for each generation: great = once removed, great great = twice removed, great great great = three times remove. 

I hope this explains things for you guys a little better. AND...I hope I explained it correctly.

Peace Out!

Happy 90th Birthday Aunt Jo

Hello Bloggers,

Today we celebrated my Aunt Jo's 90th Birthday which was actually April 24th. She loves the fact we are both a Taurus, her being the beginning of the sign and mine on the cusp. 

I took many pictures of the family and friends that were there but I am only posting one of them.

She looks great for 90 (has been to hell and back) but looks great!

Happy Birthday Aunt Jo!

                                  My cousin Elaine and Aunt Jo.

Peace Out! ☺

Cool Morning

Morning Bloggers,

A nice cool 33° this morning with the high getting to 58° today. I appreciate these cool mornings because I prefer cold over heat...and...the mornings will be heating up soon.

Good about going to bed early, you get needed sleep...Bad about going to bed early, the dogs have to potty during the night and wake you up anyway...who can figure...LOL.

Been very busy at work with the firing of two people and our leader out for a few months. We hired a girl though and two more leaders within our building so I guess you can say we are down 4 people with job changes. Hope the new girl works out. It can be a bit tiresome just sitting at a table all day correcting work.

Have a good day all!

Peace Out!

Another book down...

Evening Bloggers,

Just finished another great book by: Johanna Lindsey titled That Perfect Someone (2010) (Richard Allen/Julia Miller). Guess there are books prior to this one with the same characters. I will have to start from the beginning.

A Gothic Romance set in England which I prefer over modern times.

I guess doing the head-bob and just about falling off my seat at work may require a tad bit more sleep. Up late last evening at the State Theater...so it's early to bed for me tonight. 4:50am comes a bit early.

Have a great night everyone until next time.

Peace Out!

Long Island Medium

Morning Bloggers,

Went to the State Theater last night with Mom and Dolly and saw Theresa Caputo (the long island medium). It was very cool.

She is so cute and has this tiny little face. Her husband Larry walked up the aisle before the show and everyone went crazy calling "Larry...Larry"

She hit dead on (so to speak) with everyone and is a riot with some "shut the front door", "shut up" and "you are scaring me"

A very good evening.

Peace Out Bloggers!

War Horse

Evening Bloggers,

We saw War Horse this evening at the Playhouse. Absolutely Incredible. I loved it . The way they did the horses was ingenious. The play was so intense I cried four times.

Only two more plays to see. Guys and Dolls and Book of Mormon.

I am going to be so tired at work on Monday. I try to get to bed at 9 because 4:50 comes so fast but 11pm is a bit late for me. Good thing I am working on a special project...my determination will keep me awake.

Night All.

Peace Out!

Were in...

Morning Bloggers,

We are in! Yippy...and ...yikes. A lot to put away but I'm doing a final purge. If it doesn't have a place we don't need it...if we haven't used it...we don't need it. Kinda feels good though. I won't have to fish around items I need through...I guess you can say...junk.

We are going to see War Horse this evening at the Palace then we only have two more Broadway Series plays to see for the season.

Have a good day everyone!

Peace Out!

Hello Bloggers,

If you live in Cleveland then you accept the changes in the weather (and losing teams...LOL). 

A very chilly 44 and very windy day with rain on and off. Snow is expected for tomorrow. We did dodge the storms. Thank God for that...I am not a storm person.

Nick will be coming in the morning to help finalize our move....YIPPY...then I will have my sewing machines and start on new and finish up old projects. Can't wait to post my first accomplishment.

Haven't been able to catch the news yet about the suspects in the Boston bombing.

So sad that people can only think of harm instead of just getting along.

Peace Out!

Very Tired...But Happy

Hello Bloggers,

Just two days till we are all moved in. SWEET!

I cannot wait to resume to some normalcy...a routine.

A quick hello to all. We reached 82 outside today but will be back to reality at midnight when the storms come and cool everything down again.

Nice weather soon enough. Happy spring to all.

Peace Out!

Almost In....

Hello Bloggers,

Almost all moved in. Two very long days of packing and moving items from the basement.

Rodney finished painting the bathroom. My goodness...BRIGHT. I went from (mistakenly Pepto-bismal) pink...should have been light mauve, to highlighter lime. My goodness. If that doesn't wake you up in the morning...nothing will. 

Peace and Love and bright colors! I'll get pictures when all set up.

Peace Out!

Audio Books

Hello Bloggers,

If you know me I am not a reader. I have however started listening to audio books. I absolutely love it.

For those who have not tried this please do so.

My best time is on the way to work. Sometimes at lunch I will go out to my car because I cannot wait to hear (WHAT HAPPENS NEXT)...LOL.

I will start posting recommendations.

Peace Out!

Hello Bloggers,

Well, last week was one hell of a week getting the house ready to move into.

Although our house needs a house doctor...LOL...we cleaned and Rod got my sewing room painted (CAN WE SAY HIGHLIGHTER YELLOW) for me to start getting in order. I wanted a color bright, cheery and encouraging. I may go blind...LOL When done I will take a picture. It would be a longer chore but as I was packing I sorted and gave a lot to a thrift store that funds abused women.

Cable/phone/internet guy comes tomorrow so in the evening we will place the cabinet's and I will get them in order during the week.

The kitchen table and buffet (which I really did not need but it matched the table) I ordered did not come in yet but putting the items away in the kitchen has been a breeze. OH did I mention we need to buy a couch...

We have purged to the point where everything has a place without crowding.

Rodney has worked so hard. After the house move there will be the garage move. Jesus, Mary and Joseph...that is going to be rough. But, with the garage just about empty Rod will be able to do some repairs before he gets his workshop in order.

Can't wait to start sewing again. I made curtains for the sewing room years ago. With new windows and hanging them different I need to add about 10 inches to the bottoms. With the different embroidery designs I think adding sewing pictures will be perfect...will be a nice update.

Love and hugs and thanks to my Godson and Sue for understanding our need to move back.

Until later Blogger friends.

Peace Out!
