Happy New Year little Peanuts!

Wooooohooooo GOODBYE 2020!!

I am racking my brain trying to have any kind of an update for my giveaway post. Man 2020 really screwed things up, right?!? I didn’t travel, I didn’t do anything exciting.

I use WAZE as my map app. THIS is how boring my entire year was!!

I went 411 miles ALL YEAR!?!? No wonder my I’m having such a hard time coming up with something to write! We didn’t even get our first snow until New Years Eve! I was starting to believe Mother Nature left  Sandpoint Idaho off the snow list! 2020…. just a screwy year all the way around.


I can’t wait to see if Emmet’s (Thank you Tamra for naming him) carrot nose lasts all night. I am hoping my hat doesn’t disappear either.

Good luck Emmet!



My metal snowman was buried in 10” of snow at around noon. It hasn’t stopped snowing either.  You suppose we are getting our entire 86” in one storm!?!?  That is a lot of snow!

  1. The sun is out for a change here, so that is always nice. Have a bit of a headache this morning, hoping it will go away soon.

  2. Yesterday I had a bit of a brainwave. Mum & Dad had a large wooden bed head attached to the wall that’s been sitting in the bath since I painted their room. Well yesterday I was changing my bedding & turning the mattress when I realised that it would fit my bed frame. Put it in place, popped the mattress back and had a great night’s sleep. My hip didn’t twinge once.

  3. Today was just a typical dialysis day. We had a bad windstorm come through last night and I couldn’t sleep. I was up at 3 am

  4. Quiet day at home. I was scheduled for a mammogram on Friday, but the lady called and her machine broke. Next appointment is in March, but that’s really fine since June is when I should be getting it. I only made the appointment because I had a video call with my doctor last week and just went ahead.

    1. I think you’re better off staying at home unless it’s absolutely vital, Sarah. These new mutations popping up everywhere are really scary.

  5. Had a telehealth appointment today. First time I’ve ever done a face to face call and was really nervous but I figured it out and all was successful.

  6. Well, my brother came around today, brought my mail in but kept his mask on and only stayed a minute. I’m part of their ‘bubble’, as people say, but we still try to keep 6 feet distance–but usually he does take the mask off. Not today, though. Why? We found out Friday that my niece, who’s 17, has tested positive. Her best friend, who works at the same place my niece does, has tested positive, too. So…two weeks of quarantine all around. Again. But, thank God, she’s just having mild symptoms so far. Hope it gets better for her soon. (I haven’t been in direct contact with her since just before Christmas, but of course, I’ve seen my brother. So far the rest have all tested negative.)

  7. Day is going good. I walked to town this morning, and did a few chores and now I’m back, listening to a recording of a town meeting last night.

  8. I got my car back yesterday & headed into the nearest supermarket for a masked dash to stock up. Couldn’t get over all the empty shelves due to Brexit delays in the UK. It will ease up but doesn’t help the Covid situation.

  9. I got so distracted with the lovely day yesterday that I never cleaned the drains.. oh no…end of the world?? lol.. so today is drain cleaning day….

  10. Today I actually finished with the kids school work around 4 and was able to clean one of the bathrooms! Yay for me! Lol!

  11. Lately, I’ve been sitting up late and it’s starting to effect me. I feel soooooo tired all day. I think I need an early night, but by the time bedtime rolls around I’ll just be thinking ‘I’m not sleepy’ lol.

  12. Good swim and then a scary trip to the other grocery store that carries my Calcium carbonate. Got their garlic bread. Haven’t had it in 9 months.

  13. Day is going good. I had the lock company come and install a new doorknob, and all new keys, so one key works for the deadbolt, too. I can check this off the “to do” list – whoopee!!!

  14. It looks like mice have got at the wiring in my car and it’s going to cost a couple of hundred Euro to fix – not the start to the New Year I was hoping for 🙁

  15. Today is drain cleaning day…. If I start early I can get them all done with enough time to put my blue Lake beans in.. New Moon after all….set your intentions for the next month!

  16. Today is my brother’s birthday. He would have been 46 years old. In March it will be 5 years since he passed away. I miss him so much.

  17. I tried to clean the bathroom three different times today..and failed. I finally got it clean a few minutes ago but still have to sweep and mop. The life of a mom with four is very busy!!!

  18. The start of a new year means a lot of new dr and test appointments need made. Made 2 today then next week I’ll start on the rest.

  19. Day is going good, getting some chores done. Cold and dreary outside today, so I’m happy to not have to go out! Thinking about what I’d like to do for some crafts, Connie’s diamond paintings sound good!!

  20. Took the car into the mechanics this morning and am now feeling very isolated! Living in the sticks is all very well but when there’s no transport … Sad news as well as there were 3 (not Covid) deaths locally over the weekend. Only 10 mourners allowed at funerals. How on earth do you choose?

  21. Have my to-do list in hand and as soon as I finish breakfast out I go….Weeding and cleaning up debris from all the rain.. amazing the Met Office has declared that dry season has begun.. I guess they have not looked out their window lately…..

  22. Busy day. Got up early (well, early for me), went swimming, had a lovely 2 hour Zoom with Sage Singers. Now back online catching up. We had an inch of snow yesterday and sunny skies, but cold, today.

  23. My day is ok. It’s been a cold, rainy week. Watching the Bears/Saints game. I’m not rooting for anyone in particular since my team, the Broncos, aren’t in the playoffs. Time to figure out something for supper. I don’t feel like cooking, so I may order something.

  24. I don’t know what’s come over me but I went berserk with cleaning the house. Must be the longer stretch in the evenings.

  25. Hurray. a complete day off today….planning on doing nothing.. yes nothing.. the cats and Delilah looked up at me with sad faces and I told them no that does not include you…Delilah did a happy dance and the cats said we knew that….got to love them..

  26. Today I slept in. My daughter brought me over coffee and cinnabon. Then later we went to the casino and dinner. It was nice to get out.

  27. I did quite a few chores today, and then spent a couple of hours chatting on the phone with one of my neighbors.

  28. Today I had to clean all day and take care of the 4 kiddos! I have no complaints! Hope everyone had a great day!

  29. It’s so dang cold here. I used to love Winter, but now, not so much. I think maybe I only liked Winter because snow days meant no school, lol.

  30. I missed being here yesterday because I had to get a friend from the hospital and take her home and then my internet was out for 6 hours. I have to tell myself the the world will not end if I miss a day. Today very light snow.

  31. Took down all the Christmas curtains and drapes and washed them and put them up until next year..5 loads.. then all the door mats… cleaned my room from stem to stern and changed the curtains/drapes in my room, the guest room, the dining room and my daughters room.. the kitchen and drawing room and the gallery will have to wait until next week…..I deserve a single malt and my book!!

  32. Well, the car started and I took it for a long drive but the windows wouldn’t open. Today it started fine & the windows opened but now they won’t close – AGH!!! Probably just a fuse but now I’ll have to wait till Monday when I can get it to a mechanic. Covered the windows with cardboard & rugs for now. At least the weather’s dry.

  33. My day is going alright, it seems to be one mishap after another though, it’s one of those days you just wanna lie in bed

  34. Today went exceptionally smoothly. That is up until about 6pm. I should of knew or was the calm before the storm!

  35. Well the past 4 days I have been doing school work until 5-6 with kiddos. Yesterday one of my babies turned six and we had to have a mini party to hold him off until Sunday. This week has been crazy and im glad it’s over! I hope everyone is well!

  36. I’m doing alright today. I wasn’t feeling very well and took a nap and now I’m feeling a little better.

  37. My day is going fine so far. The temperature is a little above freezing. We were supposed to get a fair amount of snow today. So far we have just had a few snowflakes.

  38. Oh Lordy! Woke to discover that now, not only won’t the car start but now the battery charger won’t work!!! So I tried some negative psychology: start now or your going to the dump! The car started so a mad dash to get out of my pjs and into the car for a looong drive. Phew!

  39. Today we took down both Christmas trees and all the inside decorations.. even boxed up the ceramic tree.. the Christmas village and all the other breakables I will do tomorrow…I am pooped!!

  40. Not so good, actually. My day so far has been very gloomy, the National news is too terrible to look at.

  41. Bit of a mixed day today. Woke up early to get ready to head to Dublin for my injection to find out it’d snowed (a bit) so fed the birds & stuck my tongue out to catch snow. Dashed about, got in the car – bugger wouldn’t start. Completely flat battery. Rang the hospital & put the car on charge. All dressed up and nowhere to go! Hey ho!

  42. Today is a hard day for everyone..I hope everyone is well and healthy and is having a great start to a new year!

  43. I woke up late this morning after ignoring the alarm clock so I have felt a bit rushed today. It has been a rather good day otherwise

  44. I woke at 4am feeling cold so got up to put the heating on for a bit & I’m still pottering around 4 hours later. I’m having another injection in my hip tomorrow so hoping the roads will be ok. At least with lockdown the traffic won’t be bad.

  45. It’s been a pretty good day. I’ve started a healthy diet because I want to be as healthy as possible when I have my knee surgery (no date yet or anything, but I have a little over a month before the next appointment and I want to use that time well.) So far, the diet is going well.

  46. My Internet service was down this morning. Not good. Husband found a missing $50. Target gift card, good. Internet service working this evening. So, a mixed bag sort of day.

  47. Had a video call with my PCP to go over medications and tests needed. Made appointments for bone density scan and a mammogram. Whee!

  48. My day went fast, just got home from the store and a few other stops and it just wears me out trying to avoid close contact with the idiots out there that don’t seem to care about the pandemic!

  49. I didn’t get finished with kids schoolwork until about 30 minutes ago! So let’s just say it has been a long day! But I am still counting my blessings!

  50. Biz as usual here. Has some nice comforting ham and bean soup I made and just did my daily routine.

  51. Well I had a little bit of a scare this morning, the furnace wouldn’t kick on. Oh no! We just hada new one put in a couple years ago. Then I played with the thermastat and I think its just a new thermastat. Thanks goodness

  52. Happy Tuesday, all! I am still working on a big project. The sky looks like it might snow, but the temperature is not low enough.

  53. Hailstones, sleet and a wee bit of slushy snow. It’s bitterly cold though so no getting out into the fresh air.

    1. I always open the front door and stick my head out when I get up, just to ‘feel’ what kind of day it’s going to be. This morning it was sooooo cold!! I just said, ‘oh, hell, no’ and shut the door and turned on a space heater pointed directly at me, lol

  54. I am exhausted today. I didn’t sleep well last night, and couldn’t even workout this morning. Work was super busy, came home, worked out, and now catching up on blogs and giveaways 🙂

  55. The temps aren’t going over freezing at all this week so I’ve made a big pot of chilli which should last a few days. Other than that not doing anything at all today!

  56. For a Monday, my day is not going too bad. Tired as can be though! My asthma is acting up a little. I’ll be happy when it warms up some

  57. I have a full day of work planned and it is hard to get back into the swing of things after taking some PTO in December.

  58. Have to get to work today…veggie transplants to do and a few loads of laundry.. the the day is breezy, sunny but slightly cool so it will dry.. lovely…. then back up to make sure all my lists for tomorrow are ready…not really thrilled about shopping but oh well….

  59. A good swim with my friend. Broncos managed a touchdown but lost by 1 point. Arby’s tomorrow.
    This was their last game of the season so I’m sad about no more Arby’s Bronco special.

  60. I’ve been listening to Handle’s Messiah and lots of other music today. Singing along, harking back to those days when Mum was musical director in musicals all over the country back in the early/mid ’70s. She always reckoned that I sang harmony in her womb and never stopped! I could hit the highest notes but she always said “NO! Sopranos are ten a penny, Kate, I need you down there to give balance and volume to the others”. So down there I stayed and am quite happy. I know my place!

  61. My day is going ok. Not looking forward to Monday getting here. Three day weekends are great because you get more time but hard cuz you don’t want them to ever end

  62. Sunday.. well I saved Christmas Mass to watch today…long high mass and today I have the time…after that still have leftovers from New Years day so no cooking.. once again.. and this does get redundant. reading, relaxing and playing with the fur babies….

  63. My day has been uneventful. I’ve had a lazy Saturday which involved sleeping in. The highlight was dinner. I made a huge batch of macaroni and tomatoes. Yum!

  64. Here’s my comment on a post: I’m glad you named him Emmett, lo Every time I see him I think of Emmett Otter from that kids’ band; was he a muppet??? Or did he just sort of look like one??

  65. Well, 2020 will not be missed and I’m going to expect great things from 2021 just to make up for this last year, lol.

  66. It’s going well so far. While on a walk, ran into someone I had lost touch with. It was a quick but great conversation.

  67. I am enjoying a relaxing day. My daughter took her kids to a friends for an over night stay. It’s very quiet here.

  68. My day is going ok. Just another lazy Saturday at home (or day that ends in y for that matter). Have a great day!

  69. Let me think … so far today, I’ve got up, washed, fed the cat & birds. Time to go for the paper & get air in my tyres – I mean how exciting is my life? Then brekkie and going through last year’s calendar & starting this year’s.

  70. Still taking some me time…Cleaning up 2020 paperwork, filing etc..Have to make a list for going out on Tuesday to the bulk shop and other village stores…in until dentist day at the end of the month…

  71. I had plans to do some needed shopping, but I cancelled them due to the constant cold rain falling, so this hasn’t been a good start to the year.

  72. Got soaked in a downpour this morning getting out to pick up groceries. But, I’m dry and warm now, so all is well. Happy New Year!!

  73. Ireland is back in the highest level of lockdown after a brief respite over Christmas. Schools won’t be going back till the 11th. and only essential shops, banks etc. are open. Work from home is the rule, only 6 guests at a wedding, 10 at a funeral, public transport for essential workers only. Trying to stay positive.

  74. My day isn’t going great so far. I had a lot of trouble sleeping because neighbors had fireworks going past midnight and our dog was terrified. I’ve come to hate fireworks.
