Whoa there horse, what hit me, the bad news first. I gained 3 lbs. this week. Just a reminder that this is a marathon not a sprint. I guess this means I can't eat a big handful of peanuts every night. It sure was fun trying.
The wind chill is terrible , not safe to be out, 4-right now at 10:00 AM.
As I type am listening to a church service on the radio, more bad news,I think the Preacher has a hangover, he is a guest pastor, my guess he won't be back.
As my 3 year old GS said when the dog's swishing tail knocked over a flower pot" what elsie can go wrong".
Our water to the washing machine is frozen again. I guess I will have to figure out how to wrap a heat tape behind it. Not much room behind there but since I lost weight I think I can reach down behind it now.
And another thing, our Sunday paper was not there after walking out to the road mailbox, what's the deal, they think it's too cold or something?
Back to the church ,singing way off key, why don't they cut their mike when they know they can't sing, is now into slurring his words doing sermon. Who knows, he might be like this normally.
How about some good news now it's only 6 weeks to spring. Tomorrow WILL be much better.

OK everyone get ready for the shortest month of the year, see who says first" Feb. just flew by". Was a very cold week early on ,very very high winds but the buildings are still standing. Is 22 above this AM, we can handle that.
Have about 6 to 8 inches of new snow. Have taken several walks out in the fields during the heat of the day, walking through the deep snow that has been caught by the corn stalks, that my friends is very good exercise.
It's been a good week, the BH is happy, the bedroom is done ,except for the new curtains, so were all happy.
Time to get ready for church, and have a good week.
Almost forgot, I lost 2 lbs. this week. I guess that southern fried chicken my BH fixed Friday night didn't hurt too much. It's called portion control.

Things are looking up, the weather is 5 above this AM, my BH is skipping to a faster gait because she talked the old duffer into painting our bedroom plus bed accesories and curtains and still rubbing me to convince me for a new rug, the stock market has corrected somewhat, grain prices are trending up,but all my inputs are climbing higher, can't all news be good? My 45 year+ old water softner sprung a leak is the brim tank, but believe it or not my Culligan man says it's guaranteed for life . What a great life right? Whoops, forgot the bad news, gained a lbs. this week. I guess french fries two days in a row and greasy chicken will add a pound. Time to get ready for church. Have a great week. Thank you Chris, The Spark Guy. Skeeter

It's one of those days, don't stick your tongue on a pump handle. Thats an old farmer saying. Sure glad I don't have livestock anymore, it used to take all day to thaw out water for them. Was 10 below when I first got up. Sure nice for the game up in Green Bay. tried to do a lot of house projects this week. We both did buy new winter coats, my old one was just too big and showed wear from my once big belly. I have a hood on this one and sure comes in handy when out in this frigged whether. Time to get ready for church. Now the bad news, the devil made me gain 1 # this week. I'm going to kick him off my behind [ my DIL won't let me say butt] this next week. Skeeter

I am sorta burned out after trying to put my State of the Skeeter Address on three times, I would type it and then when I pushed Post the Entry it disappeared . Oh well thats life, just one more aggravation my parents didn't have to face. I t was a good week, temp. set a new high for Jan. and before this week is over might set a new low too. That's the joy of living in Ill. Have a good week. Wait a minute, I'm not done , don't tune me out yet, maintained at 180 for another week. I sure love this game called life. Have to get ready for church. Have a good week and keep on Sparking! Skeeter
