Well, school is called off tomorrow, but I doubt I'll get to skip work. Temp is -16 right now, windchill is -43. Hope all of you in this deep freeze stay safe and warm!

I haven't had too many bouts of illness since I started low carb (coincidence?) but when I had a cold I did break down and have saltines in milk - one of the few things that I can keep down when my stomach is upset. Luckily I don't have a lot of problems digesting wheat.

I reread my post and I wasn't very clear was I? Our Christmas Day is Tuesday the 7th.

I'm jealous of the warm weather folks too, but it felt like a heat wave here at 36 today! It was -4 2 days ago! Charlie and I went out shopping and for a run/walk, it felt great to get out there! Forgot the ice spikes though so it was a short one. I kept slipping!

Get better Colleen.

Merry Christmas Woubbie and boys. Is it today? I thought it was Tuesday?

We have a squirrel trying to get to the bird feeder, he's tried jumping, climbing the vine and the siding to no avail. Hub is going shopping later so I asked him to get squirrel food.

It snowed earlier when we took H for his walk but has stopped- it's about 32 out now.

To jiggle or not to jiggle, is that a question?

Hey Colleen, please take care of yourself! When I'm nauseous I sip room water temp water & warm broth. It's the only thing that keeps my digestion system calm. Sometimes I can ingest some peppermint tea. Food in my digestion track makes it horrible for my body.

You do what's good for you. B e well! Go PACKERS! Seriously, many players have bare arms . . . Brrrrrr . . . I'm hot blooded . . . except for my hands and neck . . . but to be bare arm in -10 wind chill . . . long sleeves would be a MUST!

Well I still haven't started low carb, but I'm being really sick, when I'm sick I can't do low carb, I've only been able to keep down bread and crackers. I hope tomorrow will be better. Does anyone else have issues eating low carb when sick?

Eh, some occasional "smug" adds spice to one's sense of satisfaction!

I'm enjoying the 30 degree day - plenty of chickadees and other pretty birdies coming to my feeder in the last couple of days. Tomorrow's high is 17 and Tuesday we get the cold wave that's rolling east. It's Ukrainian Orthodox Christmas, which the boys always miss school for, but this go round the school might be closed. The service will likely go on, but I expect attendance will be mighty slim.

Just relaxing again today. As I've posted elsewhere today Friday was the last official day of work craziness (at least LONG-TERM crazy - any day can suddenly turn gaga on you). I'm hoping to get back to some semblance of normalcy. It's so depressing wasting every weekend simply trying to recover mentally from the strain of the week.

Happy Sunday, all!

So jealous of all you warm weather people. We ventured out to church this morning but I am not going anywhere the rest of the day. If I ever get to retire I plan on taking spur of the moment vacations to warm places when it gets this cold.

Made a wonderful Italian Chicken in the crockpot for lunch. I may do some LC baking this afternoon.

LOL! Kris, there's gotta be warmth somewhere! All schools have already been closed for tomorrow. Stores have sent out emails stating their notice of not opening or closing early. Hey, Winter . . I've got a pot of chicken vegetable soup simmering. Cheese will be on top. Lots of energy burned to keep the body warm. YIPPEE! Have fun today! Connie, in WI

Um, yeah, sounds smug to me too! LOL

It's very frosty here but it's also sunny. Chaser loves sun and was relentlessly pestering me (he wants a walk BAD) so I sent him outside again... :) Now he's willing to snooze on the sofa while I get some stuff done. I'll walk him later after it's warmed up a tad.

A friend and I are doing mani/pedi's at about 1:30 and doing some party planning for this weekend. We're having a new year kick-off party for about 8 of us, and someone is coming to lead us in a burning bowl ceremony. Should be fun, but I have a lot to do between now and then.

I suspect that that's smug that you're feeling, Kris, and not guilty!

YIPPEE, it's Sunday! I'm home & there are lights, heat, water & food. I lost 4# this week.
The club has already canceled classes for Monday thru noon Tuesday. It's suppose to get 55 below zero here in WI. Packers play today in cold.

My joy is returning. I feel grateful, appreciative, and lucky again. Whewwwww! Thank my Angels for friends, Reiki massage, etc. YIPPEE! Connie, in WI

Just checked the weather back home. They've had about 2" of snow, turning to rain/snow mix, then 5- 8" of snow, then it turns way sub-zero tonight. I'm sure glad I'm here and not there! All you folks in the path of this mess - be careful!

I think about all we have left to do while I'm here is to finalize the plans (pick a place) for our summer reunion this summer. Other than that, a quiet, lazy day. The wind has died down, so I should be able to take the dog for a good walk.
