And We Think We've Been Cold?

January 25, 2019

Good morning.  Before I start, let me apologize for my whining about the wicked cold we've had lately.  I'm watching the Weather Channel and the temps in the Mid West and Northern states make our cold temps look rather wimpy.  Some of their temps range from 30 below zero to plus four.  These temps are with and without wind chill factors.  Not nice!!  Nope, not even a tiny speck nice!

Yesterday was wet and windy.  The wind howled all day long.  Every now and then it would howl so loud that Pogo would run to the door barking at whatever demons were out there.  Folks, my little guy would not have been able to walk across the yard yesterday without being picked up and tossed about by the wind. 

Half of the driveway was flooded, so some of the dwarfs had to walk through the water to get to the front porch.  Most of the flooding has gone now, and the part still left has been transformed into an ice skating rink for the little critters to play on.

My regular doctor's office called yesterday to tell me they had to reschedule my next appointment.  We finally decided on next Monday, mid morning.  Am I happy about it?  Nope, I would rather have rescheduled it to May or June.  Ah well, I may as well get it behind me.

I went into my photo archives and dug out this photo of Audrey and her two fur babies, Moon and JB.  You have to know that while hubby Mac is away in Japan, these two handsome fellows are taking really good care of Audrey.

Today I'll have to work on my laptop for a while, making some new quick pages.  My file folder is looking a bit thin and empty.  This should make for a fun afternoon. 

The cold weather has been making my hands hurt a bit so I've picked up my crocheting.  Each night, I try to put on one new row.   I'm not crazy about working with only one color so this afghan is going to take a while.  I figure that with one row a night, I should have it finished before the middle of May.

Today I have another coloring page from Dover for you.  This one is titled "Guardian Angel of Dogs."  Enjoy it.

Now I want to do a bit of blog reading before I go looking for some mischief to get into.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

We are having cold weather too. And high winds. But as you said there are some places way colder than us. Hope you have a good weekend. Stay warm.

We went from 8 degrees last Sunday to 55+ on Thursday. It hovered in the 30s today so I got a walk in. I'm scheduled to start physical therapy on Monday. I'm not eager to go, though I know I need to do it. Hope the weather stays okay. Take care!

You had some days of rather wicked weather! opefully temperature will go up somewhat and stay that way!
Love you little giraffe, he's so cute. And how wonderful that it helps you with your neck.
Those bracelets look very nice. And good that you have some change in keeping busy, you can do some crocheting, then some beading, another time some quick pages, etc. It is good to keep yourself and your hands busy.
I really cross my fingers for you that the weather will not come to a really wicked point, so that you can keep warm without having to take shelter under some blankets, LOL!
Take care, go outside only when there is no ice and snow.
Warm hugs
