So Sorry.....A sign of the Times...Ground Hog Day...

So sorry I haven't written lately.

I am going through a very depressing, hard, bad time.

My camera is broke...I have no car....I think I messed up a relationship that I thought had promise...and I need a roof.  Plus my washer is ancient and showing signs of giving out..the stove only has 2 1/2 burners working and the glass on my self cleaning (albeit second hand) oven door broke...(I don't even know how)  On a deeper level..the electric in the house badly need updating...several plugs in the bedroom don't even read my laptop battery....thats nothing new..we've know for a long time now, that the electric wiring in the house is sub-par and not up to code......"wing and prayer", folks....(that sounds careless...ALL safety precautions are in place where we can put them..)

I am not giving up or stopping...I am still looking for my True North... I am actually not even "taking a break".  More like a "delay"..like the LIRR.......

On the good side, it was SOO warm yesterday in NY I went out and did garden work!  I raked out some chickweed...a LARGE patch formed in the garden in the fall when I left some broccoli raab in place because it was so warm...not wating to distrub it the weeds grew.

And BEST of all....THE GIANTS ARE IN THE SUPERBOWL!!

And lastly...it is Ground Hog day.....and they are saying 6 more weeks of "winter" if you can call it that...(actually the ground hog in PA said 6 more weeks and the one in Staten Island said early spring...BUT the NY weather people are saying 6 weeks all round.)  Now really...we are going to have 6 weeks til spring no matter WHAT the ground hog says!!  LOL!!  I just wonder what all this mild winter stuff is going to do to spring and summer!  We have had warm winters before....not even sure if these warm days have set any records..but generally when we have a warm winter, we have a cold wet spring and summer...so we shall see what we shall see.....  

I think I will post  few "happy" pictures..from last summers garden..

OOOKKKK..guess I won't...Blogger is giving me trouble loading pics!  What else is new!?

Is anyone else having this trouble?  I know they are making changes (merges whatever) but to not be able to upload pics for  your own files???  Somethings not right here...

See you later...I have much to do today, and if I can get a chunk of time, try to figure this picture thing out.  If I do I will post some posies...

  1. Even with all of the negative things happening, it sounds like you have a positive outlook and are not giving up. I'm sure you will get through this, hopefully the kids are pitching in and helping you.

  3. Janie you remind me of my daughter and her home, everything is falling apart, but, her attitude about it is...if I can do anything about it, I will! I have always said the same words...why worry about it if you can't change it!
    I'm with you on this weather forecast too...Regardless to what happens with the g-hogs, the weather is going to be what it is! I love your attitude...hope you have a beautiful rest of the week! Luv

  4. Hi, Janie.
    I'm sorry to her about all of the challenges you're facing at your home. As for Blogger, I did a post yesterday about how my blog was deleted by Blogger last Saturday. Fortunately, that story had a happy ending. You might want to try a search or posting a question at the Blogger help site. That helped in my case, I hope it does for you.

    1. I am sure everything will even out..I guess there's always glitches in the beginning..wish I had the time to sit down and figure out what I can do to pretty up the bog..I think that will come too. Change is hard..we sometimes resist it but in the end see that it was better for us..sigh...happy

  5. In seeking your True North, at least your attitude hasn't gone completely south! I'd like to say the same for myself, but...

    Hope things become a little less challenging, soon!
