Rain, sun and the first case of COVID-19 in Arkansas

It rained this morning and then the sun came out and it has been shining ever since!  Weather.com is so sensationalistic when it comes to weather.  They're going to call wolf one too many times!  They were talking about a severe outbreak of storms today with possible hail and tornadoes and the whole state of Arkansas was in dark red!  I'm glad it wasn't true and it is supposed to rain again later tonight but really?  I would have planned to work outside if I'd known.  I'll just have to make rain plans AND sun plans like I did when my children were little.
Some people couldn't see the first 2 pictures on my blog post yesterday........I'll try it again here and let me know....

I was able to get out and cut some daffodils after the sun came out............
I did not get the border done for the Prim Village SAL and the middle part needs to be taken out as it is wrong. I did watch the live stream though because they were showing all the new cross stitch designs from market......I  wrote down several as Stitch Maynia is getting closer! 
I spent the afternoon writing some letters that I owed and it takes me so long with little to show for it.  But it feels better and I do enjoy it.
They just announced that Arkansas has its first case of COVID-19.  It is not confirmed by the CDC yet but he/she tested positive.  It is in Pinebluff and that is South of here pretty far from where I am.  I always said that Horseshoe Bend was on the way to nowhere.  That might be a good thing now!  From what I understand it was at the University there in Pinebluff.
 I took my walk again and did chores but haven't gotten back to the crafts room or planting seeds.   I was up very early this morning so I am really getting my days
 and nights mixed up!
 I filled the water softner with salt and the water bottles with filtered water. Cleaned up the house and ran the dishwasher.   That's about it for today!
Here are your "tidbits".....I'll be by tomorrow to check up on everyone.......... 

He took the words right out of my mouth!  Peace at any cost is not peace............
Here are some old fashioned recipes....vinegar pie?

Who knew?  here's the link
And last but not least.............
Happy Trails!!!

  1. Hi Sam. I see the photos today and they are sure beautiful. Daffodils too. They always say spring to me. We are supposed to have snow Friday and Saturday, just when I found some little crocus bravely poking up.
    We have so much of the virus here in Washington. Twelve long term care centers have confirmed cases, we have well over 1000 in the state. No one can visit ANY facilities in the state. It's really very scary. I've pretty much got everything so I can hunker down at home but Dennis still has to go to work.
    Take care of yourself and wash your hands!
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    1. I'm not scared, at my age what's to be scared of? There are worse ways to go. But I do think you need to act responsibly. It's not in my hands although I do wash them! LOL!

    2. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/

    3. I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. You can contact him via email: Emutemple@gmail.com He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him through his whats-app number: +2347012841542

  2. Yes I can see all your photos today! Pretty flowers too they look like Bluebells! We have five cases in Minnesota now.
    I ordered a few groceries online and will pick them up at the designated spot for pick up in the morning. We will see how that works!

  3. Thank you for reposting those photos! I had some "disappear" yesterday as well, even after I'd looked at the post and seen them there.

    I'm glad you aren't in a panic over the virus. Common sense is much more useful and much less stressful!

    1. That is really weird about the pictures! The only thing I did different yesterday was load a new header so that may have caused the problem. Yes, no panic here....yet! LOL!

  4. Success with pics today but would love to see your 'baby' knitting! We are just awaiting our Government announcing that our country is now in the 'delay' stage. It was only a matter of time. We can all use common sense but it other peoples' lack of common sense that is the problem. The younger folks don't seem to be taking it as seriously as the older ones, who they think are over-reacting. I'm in favour of Denmark's decision to lockdown. I think it should happen here. Italy acted too late.

  5. I am retired and live in an off the beaten path sort of place not that it is any guarantee. I just got a card from my eye doctor wanting me to make an appointment and he's an hour away in a larger city....hmmm? I guess I should go now before it gets worse or not go at all? Because of the shortage of testing equipment no one really knows how many people are infected. I'm sure we have more than just 1 in our state! I think you are right but you know it boils down to no one wants to lose the money and there are many who need that paycheck. It's a very difficult situation.
