There's a saying among Tennesseeans..."If you don't like the weather...just wait a few minutes...it will change."
That saying has proven itself true time and again. Something about how the land here is situated within the mountains and valleys. Today was beautiful, sunny and 60. Yesterday was cold, and the day before. Thanksgiving was beautiful and 70. Tomorrow the high is expected to be 48
Yet, next week is going to be back in the 60's. It's like a roller coaster ride
Kian, i just LOVE pumpkin pie! We had a Pumpkin Pecan Streussel Pie for dessert. It was so good that i couldn't stop going back for a "nibble" here and there...so, on Saturday, i brought it to work for everyone to get it out of the house and away from me!!! I have a HUGE sweet tooth and i just can't let myself get carried away. I don't deny myself...but i have to practice some control or i WILL go overboard. I have seen pictures of the "bacon wrapped turkey"! It looks yummy! i love bacon
I'll bet it was delicious and super flavorful. Glad your having fun with your dad. Mine came up last year and i'm hoping to get both my parents up here once we are settled out in Pigeon Forge.
WOW! Glad your OH's brother did not have a stroke!!! How is he doing?
Jayme, thanks for the advice. I, too, have had the same problem you have had with my toes going numb. Also, i notice, if i'm wearing the wrong shoe...my toes will go numb. The OH recently bought me a very nice, supportive pair of sneakers...i just haven't given them a try yet. I'm thinking about sticking to low impact cardio. Weak knees and back problems run in my family. I take Osteo-BiFlex for my joints, it really helps a lot.
We don't typically get much here, being a somewhat southern state. But, we do usually get some. It's just the right amount for me. Because, it doesn't usually stick around for long. Usually.
In the 4 years we've been here, we've only been snowed in once. It is so pretty when you wake up in the morning to a fresh thick blanket covering the ground. That's when you tuck inside, make some hot cocoa and enjoy it!
Talking about what makes people fee the need to "go"....when i go into the kitchen to wash dishes, without fail, the water running in the kitchen sink, makes me have to "go". It IS a strange phenomenon.
Good luck at the specialist tomorrow. I hope you don't need too much work and i hope it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg!
