Minnesota Winter!!

Oh Yes !we have winter in Minn. this past few days! 14 below in AM ! I have'nt stuck my nose out the door for two days except to grab the paper. Tues. Mary Beth & I went to casino (on a bus tour)It wasn't as cold then --I did well as I came home $70 richer. That does not happen very often--usually not at all!! I have gotten some information about Life Alert & I will probably get it. It costs 37.50 a month& they install a speaker phone & check once a mon to see if it is working properly. You can get either a bracelet or a necklace to wear all the time.I like the necklace.Iasked the Dr. about it & he gave me info -Also said it was a good idea for someone living alone. Pat thought it was a good idea too.
This coming weekend Pat & I are going to Liz Reeds wedding in St. Cloud This is my great niece. Then on Sun we are going to Dianes house to get together with Linda,Donna, Janet & I think Jerry.
The wedding is on Sat at 4 pm . we are staying overnight in a motel & will go right to Dianes house on Sun.
I had some turkey noodle soup for lunch & it was just great for a cold day. Stay warm everybody!!

I guess I should blog more often as I forgot how to get in but after a few tries I finally made it!! It was really great to see Heidi,Chad Janet, Donna & my family during the holidays. I still do not have my decorations put away-they are downstairs waiting to be sorted & put away. I have a pinched nerve in my lower back & it affects my rt leg so I have been going to chiropractor & putting ice on it when I sit. It is getting a lot better but not fast enough for me!!
Tues Mary Beth & I are going to the casino in Hinckley-we haven't been to a casino for ages-I think the last time was on our cruise in Oct.
I enjoy reading the blogs & reading Rachel's fromGermany --They sure have had a lot of moves in their life already. And I love all the pix that everyone sends. Aren't computers just amazing?!
