I've heard the Dollar Tree carries them, but, I can not confirm.

Default A bad senior moment

Is this the start of something bad? Last night I forgot to feed the dogs. I know I didn't because some leftovers from my lunch are still sitting in the fridge where I put them to add to the dogs bowls at dinner time. Not that either of them would starve to death missing one meal even if the chocolate lab would have you think so. The fact that I forgot is rather scary to me. What else am I missing?

On a lighter note tomorrow I get to have a big adventure. I'll get off the Blue Ridge Plateau and head down the mountain to Costco in Winston-Salem. Generally they are a week or two ahead of us when it comes to spring weather and so many of the trees and shrubs will be in bloom and it should be a lovely 90 mile drive.

Well . . . things happen. I don't think it is a big sign of memory loss . . . you were probably just distracted and forgot!

I do a lot better when I keep lists around . . . and if you find yourself forgetting things, why not just write down a "daily to do" as well as another list for the things that pop up . . . I bet you will find that you rarely forget anything that is part of your daily routine.

Hope you have a good trip to the Old North State today! Foggy and cold here in the mountains. Feels like November. Crazy weather.

April what?, and we are still wearing our winter jackets most days. Some days start off slightly sunnier and warmer but by afternoon, cold and cloudy. Strange, with the predictions that this year may be one of the "warmest" ever recorded.

Zug, maybe you were preoccupied with your trip? Or something else? I think just the scare it put into you will guarantee that you won't do it again.

negirl, it does feel like March. Soon to be 60 come tomorrow. Yep, right from the fire into the frying pan, 70 next week. I will sooooo take it. I'm still watching the snowpiles and icebergs in the yard. Maybe tomorrow I will take down the Christmas decorations the snow is still too high to get at some of them. At least I unplugged the lights last month.

Yep, still putting on my winter coat to take my furkid walkies.

I so wanted to set out some plants b/f I left here to go back to Charlotte, but I am worried about doing that at this point. :-(

Yesterday was cold and foggy here. I really want to be outside and I need to start seeds but this weather makes me just want to sit inside.

Memory problems? The "where is my car in the parking lot question" -- I just got back from the grocery store and a young pony tail type gal was standing in the parking lot looking lost. A guy about 45 (?) said, "Forgot where you car is? Happens to me all the time."

So it has no age limits. (Hope that makes somebody feel better.)

It's been really nice here and I'm enjoying it because the heat will soon be upon us. I spent all of yesterday doing housework, laundry and cooking for the week so didn't get to enjoy the outdoors. I did keep eyeing the gazebo though and thought that a book and a glass of ice tea would be nice! lol Today, as soon as I can get myself moving, I'm going out of town. Shopping and lunch with cousins.

After I had 'lost' my car a few times, and felt like an idiot wandering around looking for it, I got into the habit of checking the lane number. The other day I forgot...it was two rows over from where I was looking. Gads...

Trust the final frost date for your planting region. I see folks here buying pansies and petunias to plant outside now, they are wasting their money.

Time for the old lady "pompom" or plastic daisy on your car antenna, LOL.
