One Gulp Then Away Again

When we woke up this morning, there was more snow on the ground.

Husband and I discussed how much. . . I said 3” /
he said 1” but neither of us bothered to find a ruler nor went out to measure the depth.

Enough Already was our final agreeement.

And the temperature going from 36oF yesterday
to only 3 ^ 0 today sure has my joints aching.  Although he spoke about colder weather now will be putting a big squelch on bugs and molds later in the Spring.

I had told SubFinder to Do Not Disturb with early morning phone calls because I am busy with some church events.  Dear Ones E-mail list got the obituary for our friend Tom.

When I looked at the computer grid, there were three jobs open, but not a one did I think was good enough to break my silence.  This is one of those times when somebody else will have to work harder.

Over breakfast (which was leftover meatloaf on a biscuit—unusual but quite tasty) I had my latest copy of Angels on Earth magazine parked beside my plate.  Some sweet reading to start the day.

I pulled on some ready for the laundry clothes, bundled up, then shovelled out the front and back sidewalks, both cars and the driveway cleared of snow.
The ice underneath is a different problem.  The mailman was wearing ice clamps on his boots.

My shopping list is written, have made and received several phone calls, knitted a couple rows on the latest peg loom hat, and chosen crochet thread to make a bookmark to enclose in a sympathy card.

With All this done before 11AM  🙂

Now I’m gonna take a shower, put on some freshly laundered clothes, bundle up again, let the car use up gas while idling get warm in the driveway, and head off to the grocery store.

I have promised to make a dessert for the funeral lunch, a couple extra items for the Family Fun Night dinner, ground turkey and stuff for supper tonight here at home.
I’m going to try a new recipe Jack’s Turkey Stroganoff as seen yesterday on the Bonnie Hunt Show.

You all will have to carry on without me again.

Real Life brings hustle to my bustle.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Sounds like after you get all that done YOU need to eat your very healthy dinner and TAKE A SIT-DOWN!
    Whew! Makes me tired reading all your chores!

    Well you don’t have to worry about the Devil’s Work around you because your hands sure aren’t idle. Just don’t overdo because in weather like this it is easy to get run down.
