Thanks Lily for reminding me to open a new thread. Here is the link to the old one.
Jill, try running your water a little at night when you know you will have freezing temps. That's what we do.
Hi Lily and Lee. Boring today....just cold.
I love this picture.
Hi Lily, Vicky, and Jill,
Jill, the cold here is horrible too. I hope you have water soon.
Yes, it is boring today, but I wish I was bored and warm!
Hi Jill, Lily and Lee. Another night with the temps in the 20's. I thought I read Weatherbug today and it said it was going to be warmer tonight but I read it wrong. Not til tomorrow will it start warming up.
Jill, I hope you got your water back. I know how horrible it is to be without it.
Lee, I hope all your outside animals made it through the night o.k. If you can afford it or if you can get someone to donate it, a bunch of hay would be great for the animals. You could put it in different piles and they could snuggle down in it. There are some farmers, etc. that will help out with rescued and sometimes wild animals. Good luck with it.
Lily, that sure is a cute kitty....I love it's colors. I read in the other group where you visited Les but that he stayed asleep most of the time. I'm sorry you wasted a trip; hopefully next time he will be alert.
Good night folks....gonna get in my warm, fuzzy p.j.'s
That little sloth is adorable. I hope it gets warmer soon. My hands are turning to sandpaper and cracking in places. I have to wash them alot because of my animals. I hate the heat, but this cold is ridiculous!
Lee, did those heated gloves help that I sent you last year? I'm not sure how many pairs there were. I know they sell (or sold) them at Home Depot and they weren't expensive either. I feel so bad that your hands get so cold that they crack.
It is beautiful here today. I just sat outside for a while in the lovely sunshine. It will only be in the 40's tonight.
Cute little sloth Vicky.
It hasn't been too bad here today.
I went to the doctors this morning for blood test results.
also still waiting for a scan on my tummy,they are long winded!!
she said that could be why I have been having trouble with my hair(the thyroid problem)

Hi Vicky, Lily, and Jill,
Vicky, it's getting them wet so much in the cold that's messing up my hands. As I remember the gloves helped some, but I have to take them off to feed and water my babes. That's when my hands are getting so messed up.
Lovely graphics, Jill. Many people here have lost their water even though they left it running. It just got soooo cold.
That's right, Lily. The first symptom of underactive thyroid is hair loss. I'll bet that's it. Did she give you something to help it?
A quick 'good night' everybody. If your hair thinning is due to thyroid inactivity, I hope the doctor can give you something to straighten it out. What is the scan on your tummy for, Lily? Jill, did you ever get your water back on? You sure posted some pretty graphics tonight. Lee, I don't know how you can endure the cold when your hands are wet. BRRRRR! I know you have to but I know how miserable your hands feel.
Have a blessed evening.
Not been given anything yet I have to have another blood test first,
The tummy scan is to check on where I had operation.
got the sneezes tonight,looks like I have caught a cold going out.
Had to go back up there this morning to take the urine test in.
It wasn't raining though and I hopped on the bus both ways.
I remember now the receptionist up there sneezed while I was waiting the first time.
So maybe caught it off her.I don't need that now as I cant take a cold up to see Les next week
Hi Jill, Lily, and Vicky,
Wonderful graphics, ladies. It's in the 60s today...warm at last.
Got a lousy cold so going to bed
Will be back tomorrow.
Hi Jill, Lily, and Vicky,
I hope everyone feels much better soon. I feel pretty good today. Sshh! I've got to be quiet about it or the gremlins might hear!
This post was modified from its original form on 13 Jan, 8:42
It's pouring down rain right now. Temps aren't bad but they will be very cold at night again in a couple of days. I had so much running around to do today but I guess that's out for now. I also was going to mop floors but forget it....won't waste my time til rain stops and it dries up.
Lily, I'm so sorry you are getting a cold and hopefully you will be better before going to see Les. Cute little puppy with his tongue out and also the kitty and dog. Keep us up to date when you get your tummy scan.
Jill, glad you got your water back on. Pretty horses, swan, frog and rose graphic. The black pic with is kind of spooky.
Lee, hopefully the gremlins won't hear about how you feel pretty good. They always like to interfere.
Well, other groups to visit. I will talk to everyone later.
You, too Jill. I love the fire crackling in the fireplace and the big window with the sheer curtains.
Lily, thank you so much for my hilarious birthday card. I was shocked when I got it but laughed and laughed....my mom did too. I will treasure it!
Glad you liked the card Vicky and only 2 days late,well that's not so bad.
wont be going to see Les this week with this cold,nose still dripping.
My sister in law said she will go one day this week.
Been raining on and off here but quite mild for January.
They do say though frost and ice coming maybe some snow.
Don't want that!!
Hi Lily, Jill, and Vicky,
Today was beautiful.....sunny & warm. Tonight will be in the 30's and tomorrow will be a lot cooler (in the 50's) and tomorrow night in the 20's.
Lily, I'm sorry you have a cold and can't visit Les and I hope your SIL will be able to go. It's a shame you have a cold, too, cause I know they are not fun. Hopefully you will get well real soon. I loe your graphics.
Jill, how's the weather in your area? Still real cold? Pretty lady in the sombrero.
Hi Lily, Jill, and Vicky,
Wonderful graphics, ladies. It's just dreary and cold here. Nothing happening other than that. Brrrrr...
Hi friends well my sister in law went to see Les but unfortunately he was having another of those turns so she couldn't converse with him.
They said he was fine in the morning and quite chirpy but by the time she got there he had changed.
It was a nuisance as we need to find out something from him as we are having a bit of a problem where his flat is concerned.
She said she will go again another day.
Wish I didn't have this cold as it is hindering me from doing things.
Hi Lily, Jill and Lee. Well tonight will be in the 20's and I've brought some of my plants in even though I should have before as my plants look about dead. I'll wait til the spring though to see what recovers.
Lily, sorry your brother is non communicable in the afternoons. I guess after your cold is gone you all will have to visit him early....while he's in a chatty mood. Precious puppy by the way.
Pretty purple graphic Jill with the white dove....the last picture looks so nice with the water.
Lee, I hope the weather warms up for you and the sun comes out. Even if it's not hot, the sun makes you feel warmer.
When he gets those he is not aware of anything around him it
So it is the luck of the draw when visiting him.
sure will be glad when the weather brightens up again,dreary looking here.
Hi Jill, Lily, and Vicky,
The sun has come out! The sun has come out!
You're right, Vicky. It feels warmer even though it's not really. I was about to be overcome with dreary.
Lovely graphics. They all made me smile.
Hi Lily and Jill,
Adorable graphics, friends! I surely needed some smiles today.
Here's another to make you smile Lee.
Hi Lily and Jill,
More wonderful graphics. Thanks for the smiles.
It is still so very cold here. Brrrrr!
Cute graphics Lily and Jill! Today was sunny but cool. Well my driveway got laid down 2 days ago and I really like it. No more mud puddles to walk through when it rains. YAY!
Lee, I'm glad the dreariness has gone...at least temporarily. The sun gives the illusion of warmth (in the winter) as long as the wind isn't blowing. The wind cuts right through me. But I guess without the sun it would really be cold. BRRR!
Jill, how's the weather in your area?
Lily, maybe the sun will come out soon....that always lifts my moods. I hope you get around to seeing your brother soon and that he will be aware of what's going on and be chatty.
Well, I'm off to visit a few other groups. It seems like I like posting less and less. Not sure why.
Too tired to write more tonight as it is early hours so catch up tomorrow.
What a sweet puppy Lily. You must be real tired cuz it's not like you to just post a picture like I do sometimes. Did you do something today that made you real tired? I didn't much....went to church and then later my brother and nephew came to my mom's and then later my aunt. Other than that nothing but t.v. and computer. Well I will bid you a good night.
I sometimes doze off watching TV after dinner and then come on here but as you know by now I am then on here early am.
So sometimes too tired to comment
also sometimes have to go a bit earlier if I have to get up early for something.
So I prefer to post a pic rather than nothing.
Thats a nice one might snag it!!!!

Just a quick hello to Everyone! Nice to see you are around.
Hi Vicky, Lily, and Olga,
My hands are hurting today.
Lee youv'e been doing too much again.
Weather was pretty good here today,some sunshine and not even cold.
Went for my blood test,my sister in law came over so she went with me.
We weren't up there long.
she is going to see Les tomorrow to see if he will sign something.
hope he is aware this time.
We`want to go to the flat next week.
Hi ladies. Yesterday was in the upper 60 or lower 70's but today was very windy and much cooler and tonight in the 20's. Brrrr.
Olga! Hello my friend....how have you been? It is so good to see you more and more on Care2 again. I really miss you. Here is your picture and it's adorable. What you have to do is click 'basic editor' (at the bottom of your box) and then paste your code in this box and click 'Advance Editor' to return back and your picture will be there!
Jill, beautiful pink roses....I wish I had some that color in my garden.
Lee, how are your wrists/hands doing? This cold weather is going to give them heck, I'm sure. Sorry.
Lily, I'm glad it was warmer for you today and that your SIL went with you to get your blood test. I guess you aren't going to go with her tomorrow to see Les, then. I hope he will be better. Your puppy graphics are so cute.
Well time to run again. Have a great evening or morning.
Hi Jill, Lily, and Vicky,
Beatiful pink roses and butterflies, Jill.
Vicky, I am always amazed at your dancing talents!
Lily - 4 minutes ago - dailymail.co.uk
Yes Lee Vicky is a great dancer isn't she lol
Hope she doesn't miss the link there.
Lee there is a care2 e-card waiting for you.
I really must start getting to bed earlier,I am worse than ever at the moment.
Not doing me any good laying in as I don't get other things done then.
Hi Lily and Lily,
Hi everybody! Boy it's very cool today and tonight will be 23 degrees. I have been damp all day since I am keeping my central air low because of my outrageous electric bill this month. My monthly income has been cut in half(the Federal Government stopped our unemployment checks for those that had extensions (me) so between the electric bill and my 2 tax bills (1 for my property and 1 for my vehicle) I will have very little (if anything) left.
Lily, that video of me dancing is hilarious!!! I never knew I was such a good dancer or that I could multiply. hahahaha! What site did you use? I love the picture of the sleeping lab...they are such gentle dogs. I hope Fleet (fox) is okay since they have stopped tracking him because of no signal. They said he has a type of worm in his heart so I don't know if that long trek of 195 miles has hurt him. I wonder why he travelled so far since the farthest a fox had been tracked before was 30+ miles. I hope your health improves since you said that you are worse than ever.
Lee, I'm so glad you respect my dancing talents. lol Be sure to stay bundled up as there will be a couple more cold days/nights in store for us.
Jill, you sure like pink don't you? Some of your prettiest graphics have been pink. I especially love the one made in Blingee with the pretty falling snow. Did you make it?
Well gotta run. Talk to you all later. I wonder what happened to Nance?
Vicky you didn't read that right,I never said my health was worse than ever but my late nights!!!!
That fox may have lost the collar so they cant track him,either that or something happened to him.
Lung worm can kill them same as dogs if they get it.
I haven't seen a fox for a while guess it moved on.
Still got my pretty pigeon coming ,it stands out among the others ,would make a nice pet!!
The squirrels are burying nuts everywhere! making sure they have a good supply I guess.
There are new people in the flat next door,haven't really seen them but the lights are always on in there.
Seen them come on when I have just been going to bed!! lol so they get up early for work I guess.
Hi Lily, Vicky, and Jill,
I think I am going to quit making comments as I seem to mix things up constantly. It has been sleeting all day and is now 27 degrees. Getting ready to get off the computer so good night ladies.
Beautiful blue graphic Jill. Looks like rain is dripping.
Was just pointing it out Vicky,
Going to rain here tomorrow I think (makes a change!!!!)
Got some shopping to do as well.

Hi Lily, Vicky, and Jill,
Will write tomorrow as it's so late
Hi Jill, Lee and Lily. This will be short tonight. Kinda tired. Lily, the dogs are cut...the one with the blue eyes gorgeous. I guess you and your SIL will going to see Les soon. Lee, getting ready for another cold front? It was beautiful today. Jill, what a cute graphic with the little dog in it. I can see we are all dog lovers (and ducks, too).
This post was modified from its original form on 26 Jan, 18:14
Oh, I may not be home tomorrow night so if I don't post that's why.
Hi friends hope your weekend was enjoyable.
I didn't go out as it was wet and windy most of the time and I just hate wind more than anything.
Lee hope you are warming up a bit now.
I wont be on here Wednesday and Thursday (well maybe Thursday night) as I will be over my sister in laws.
Also got my doctors appointment Tuesday so will haveto go to bed earlier Monday and Tuesday night.
I need to break the bad habit I guess staying up so late.
Easier said than done though.
Time goes so quick when we are on here.
Hi Lily, Vicky, and Jill,
Hands a little better today.
A quick hello friends. Lee I am so happy your hands are feeling better today. You need a break from all that pain. Severe cold weather is heading this way again. Beautiful graphic, Jill! Lily, we'll miss you but we'll see you when you get back and can post. Be safe. Pretty dog.
For the next couple of days/nights I'm going to have to dance to keep from freezing. lol
Hi friends well won't be on later as i need to go to bed earlier because of my doctors appointment but will be on Tuesday night(not late though)
Lee glad your hands feel a bit better.
Went shopping ,been raining and of course it started as I came out of the store but put my hood up so wasn't too bad and I was soon home anyway.
but weather forcast says might be a light snowfall on Thursday so hope not before I get home again.
Hi Lily and Vicky,
Snow and ice and horrible cold here.
I hoped my hands would be much better today. Oh well...
Hi Lily, Jill and Lee. Well the temps right now (3:30 pm) is 26 degrees and sleeting. I hope everyone that has to be out in it drives safely. Sounds like your hands are giving you more trouble Lee....I know this cold weather is really hurting them. Try to stay warm. Cute dog Lily. I guess you've been to the doctor by now but I'll probably be sleeping by the time you make it to the group. I'm glad you had a hood on your jacket so you didn't get wet.
Well, just wanted to say hi. Here is some internet pups....aren't they adorable? I've nicknamed them Fatty, Chubby and Chunky. lol
OMG unhealthily fat Vicky they look as if they have been inflated!!!!
My tests said thyroid is now normal.
Scan is next Wednesday.
Going to bed now because I want to be up and away early.
So back Thursday night or Friday
Hi Vicky, Jill, and Lily,
Brrrr...It's colder than it's ever been here.
Have a good trip, Lily! We'll miss you.
Not sure how they could be unhealthy Lily...I think at that age they are only receiving their mother's milk (it's probably what's in the bottle for some reason). Maybe it's just the type of puppies they are or they need to be wormed soon (probably way too young)...I think they are adorable. Have a safe trip.
Lee, it is supposed to get down to 14 degrees tonight. Our poor lemon and orange tree's leaves are all curled up. I hope they aren't dying....hopefully in the spring they will bounce back. Stay warm.
Jill, how are you getting along with this cold weather? I hope you're staying warm, too. Pretty graphics.
This post was modified from its original form on 29 Jan, 11:47
Hi Jill and Vicky,
It was 8 degrees here last night actual temp, below zero windchill!
This post was modified from its original form on 30 Jan, 9:53
Darn Lee....it's strange that your temps are so much colder than us and we live close to the gulf. Are you staying warm in your house? This crazy weather was in the 60's today and will be in the 70's this weekend. I guess Lily will be back tonight or tomorrow. This is weird, a box just popped open on my tool bar saying it was time to change the time (Jan. 31). No way. Not til the spring. Great graphic Jill. Do you know how to make them? They are fun. I belong to 2 Care2 groups that will teach you if you're interested. Well if I'm feeling better I'll be back tomorrow...I'm still not up to par. Have a great weekend!
Someone asked me if those puppies were dolls Vicky! got to admit they do not look natural and the other two look the same you would expect expressions to vary slightly.
Whatever breed they are too fat for that age.
I wouldn't like your cold weather Lee.
It rained non stop when I was away those 2 days.
Last night was a bit colder,I did not get home until after 9pm
and was worn out so did not come on here.
We went to see Les but unfortunately like last time he was in one of those 'turns' and I could not speak with him.
I don't think he even knows we are there when having them.
we are going again next week so hopefully might get him when he is ok.
We went to the flat to do some sorting but there is still so much there and we have to clear everything by the 17th of this month.
be glad when it is all settled.
Good afternoon Lily, Jill and Lee. Lily, I'm glad you made it back safely but I'm sorry you had rain both ways and that Les was out of it. Hopefully next time he will be able to talk to you. I know what a job that is to clean out an apartment. I guess Lee will stop in later. I love the birds in your graphic Jill.
Hi Lily, Vicky, and Jill,
Have a good weekend, everyone, and hope that Phil doesn't see his shadow. Six more weeks of winter if he does!
windy here today.
Not sure what that means Lee about Phil and his shadow.
No news really haven't been out sinceI got back from my sister in laws.
Don't want to go out when the weather is like this.
Wish it would clear up.
Hi Lee, Jill and Lily. Lee, if the weather in Punxsutawney, PA is anything like ours, it was cloudy and Phil didn't see his shadow. But winter doesn't bother me although this year was the worst we've had in years and years. Just stay warm inside your flat, Lily. Have you seen the fox or hedgehogs lately? Well, news is short here so I'll bid you all a goodnight/day.
I feel sorry for those caught up in the floods over here with no sign of it letting up,they can't go back to their homes.
must be a lot of animal casualties too,doesn't bear thinking about.
No sign of any foxes Vicky,guess they are getting on with their'love lives' right now as it is time.
Been purty -50 C up here in the Land of Ice and Snow
Somehow they call it the Artic Flow that has gone 'Polar Vortex.' Had to get a new battery, as mine was wore out, now better to start.
Keep warm and stay safe.
Nance! Good to see you....I thought you might have become a popsicle but I'm glad you didn't. Heck our 14 degree night temps must feel like summer to you. lol I hope your old battery didn't strand you....I know they pull a lot harder in cold weather but your weather is super cold so I'm sure you used a lot of energy out of it. Are you still working?
More cute dogs, Lily...the white one looks like his right eye is gone. I'm glad you got some sunshine. I hope the fox has found a mate and that the hedgehogs are dry, warm and safely sleeping underground.
The ham looks delicious and the flowers so pretty, Jill. If they weren't so big I'd say they were marigolds. Sweet little kitty, too.
Lee, yep Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow so be prepared for more cold weather. I know that is not something you want to hear....me either as my electric bill doubled and I hate to see it next month...I fear it will be worse.
Have a good evening everyone.
But the forcast is worse for Wednesday.
I went out and filled bird baths, the pigeons make a mess out there because they think it makes a nice seat!!!!
still seeing that nice white one with a bit of another colour on it's back.
Squirrels burying nuts everywhere digging up my bulbs!!!
Of course some people leave hedgehog wooden houses in their gardens for them but they will only go where they want.
Unfortunately some go in compost heaps and some get moved alas when people have bonfires and don't check for them.
Hi Nance, Vicky, and Lily,
looks as if I may not be going over my sister in laws tomorrow as there are train strikes on probably for 48 hours at least unless they call them off which isn't likely.
Would happen this week when we have so much to do but also rain and gales expected to make it even harder.
Bad enough I have to go for the scan in the morning,I get buses but if it's gales I shan't be happy
Just when we have so much to do over there.
may be another one next week too.
Been raining since I got home though.
The buses were packed but managed to get a seat after 5 minutes of being packed like sardines.
hated drinking all that water at 8.30 am,water always makes me belch!
Loads of people without any power and some evacuated.
Gales of 80 mph in some places and`may reach 90 they say.
Hi Jill and Lily,
Beautiful pics and graphics, ladies.
Cold here as usual.
My Grandson, Sidney, 2 yrs....learning to ice skate
Hi Nance, Lee, Lily and Jill. Pretty graphics, Jill and cute graphics of the dogs, Lily. Weather still cool and will be cold for a couple of nights but will warm up again.
Nance, your grandson is cute as a button. He looks tall but it may be the way the picture was taken. How did he do with his ice skating? Children learn so quickly.
Lee, I imagine your hands are hurting. Has the weather warmed up any? I can't believe that Florida was having 70-80 degree temps when it was so cold here.
Lily, sorry your trip to sort out your brother's apartment got delayed. Maybe next week. That was great that you got a seat on the bus within a few minutes. Wow, I thought hedgehogs burrowed underground....thanks for the correction. I hope your test results turn out okay...let us know when you find out.
Hi Jill....how is the weather where you live?
Vicky guess you missed it way up there me asking you about starting a new thread (over 111 now)
I cant post here when it gets so long taken me 1O minutes to get this box to keep still,.The page goes up and down all the time and` I even have a job to read the messages.
Hi Nance, Vicky, Lily, and Jill,
Wonderful pics and graphics today, ladies.
I know a word for that, Lily. It a very old one...lovingkindness.
I agree Lee....love and kindness are the perfect words to describe the love the man is showing to his precious dog. Gotta post it on Facebook.
Lily, I will start a new thread....thanks for letting me know.
Beautiful graphic, Jill. I love sparkly.
Well it sleeted today and the temps are damp and cold. Time for me to go and crawl into my fuzzy p.j.'s and bed to watch t.v. or check my mail.
