It seemed almost pleasant outside this morning when I
left the house to walk to the office. Well, at least it was
until I got out of the shelter of the house and the cold
north wind hit me in the face. Hmmm. Should I drive
or walk? DH had parked my pickup in the driveway
and his car was behind it. The IMP needs have her
annual physical and I don't want to drive her much
until after she sees her doctor LOL! So off I go, into
the wind and glad that it is only a short way. There
is light snow in the air and the street is beginning
to get covered, just enough so the ice is hidden.
I arrived safely, deposited my purse in the office
and strolled to the café to see who is there and
catch up on all the latest news. Nothing new-that
is odd. I finish early because I have plenty I want
to get done before 9. I make excellent gains and
feel like I should be ahead of the game. The
snow keeps falling and I shovel the sidewalk so
no one slips or falls. I shovel again after lunch.
Tonight, I leave it because the wind just blows it
all back-in front of the door. I will deal with it again
I toss together a casserole of fresh browned ground
beef, leftover, brown rice, stewed tomatoes, onions,
green peppers and portabella mushrooms with a
package of sloppy joe seasoning. DH likes it so I
can make it again sometime.
Firemen's meeting went well and we watched a
video on the dangers of low-end dams, very common
in our area. And also very dangerous if you get
sucked into the tide directly in front of the dam.
Glad I prefer standing on the riverbank to taking a
boat out on the river!
It will be quite cold tonight with wind chills of 20
to 30 below zero. We are keeping the wood furnace
going and are happy that we do not have to venture
outside for anything.
Have a Happy Hump Day and thanks for stopping by. HUGS!
