Triskaidekaphobia Friday Fill-Ins and Frtday Fragments

This is a fun meme co-hosted by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

1. My guiding word for 2017 is take a deep breath before speaking or posting, and turn Trump off the TV.
2. It is hard to make it to my California class reunion now that I live in Missouri.  I would have tried to go to the 40th, last year, but we were on Europe a few days later!

3. Truth be told I am superstitious about butterflies. When ever a butterfly comes close or even lands on me....I say hello Mom/grandma, depending on who I am with. Mom loved butterflies and I am sure she is close in spirit when a butterfly is close.

4. Lately, I have been worried about Mr BC's peace of mind and health. He has been not feeling well and has to use oxygen during the day, since before Christmas.   He is also having a surgery procedure at the end of the month and he is a bit low about that. I want to help him keep his spirits up.

*Today, as I get ready to go to the grocery store to stock up, there are reports of an ice storm that may be coming our way early Friday morning and Saturday. Snow is one thing ice is another. We are suppose to be at the hospital at 8 am, for an pre-op anesthesia appt.  That can be problematic.

* My dogs are getting older and grumpier and lately, not getting along each other. Gwennie will charge at him because, he barks at her.  He barks because he is afraid she is going to attack him. They spend the day annoying each other.  They are getting a walk most every day, if the weather permits. Mainly so they will be too worn out to argue. 

*Well, we woke up to rain, there was ice on the roads, but we made it to the hospital for the pre-op meeting. The temp was below freezing and the roads were slick but there was no sliding.  By the time we left it was raining and the temperature was in the 40's.  It is supposes to happen again tonite, but we have nothing to do this weekend but stay warm and long as the power doesn't go off.

*DD2 was here last night and she is excited to go to CA next week, she is going for the Women's March in LA, and she will be seeing the boys. I won't be seeing them for their birthdays, I am going to get out and pick something up for them. I had to postpone my visit in Feb because of Mr BC's procedure.  I would like for him to feel so much better that we can both go to CA sometime early the RV.  We will see.


  1. First, prayers for Mr. BC. I wish him well.
    I love the butterfly thoughts. I "believe".
    The dogs are adorable, too. Our two rescue Shelties are total opposite, too. They have worked it out peacefully, though. We have had Kenzie for almost a year. She will be ten soon. Stella is almost seven, and we have had her almost four years.
    Thanks for joining us each week! Hugs.

  2. Taking a deep breath before speaking helps us not have to eat our words so often, doesn't it?

    Praying for Mr. BD's speedy recovery, and that you can both take a trip in the RV as soon as spring arrives.

  3. I am praying for both you and your husband, for total healing and restoration. I am sorry that he has to be on oxygen in addition to his other health issues. :(

    I am glad that you made it safely to the appointment. Snow and ice are beautiful, but trying to drive in it is no fun.

    Maybe the critters will get along better once spring gets here and it is warmer where you live. I sure hope so!

    Have a blessed weekend. :)

  4. We will keep you and your husband in our prayers. Have a great weekend.

  5. I am glad you were able to get to your appointment this morning. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I will add your husband to my prayer list. Deep breaths are good and so is turning off the tv :) Have a great weekend!

  6. Will be thinking and praying for your husband, and you.
    Oh my goodness, is Triskaidekaphobia a real word!?

  7. Hope MR BC feels better! And I think we all agree with number 1!

  8. I am taking a deep breath a lot of times, it does a lot of good, so naturally I think that it's a good choice.
    I hope that everything goes well with Mr. BC's procedure and that he is feeling better.
