Frigid Friday
Friday, February 12, 2021      15 comments

A high percentage of the country seems to be reporting very cold temps for this weekend, my area included. Please stay safe - if your car stalls, call for help, do not get out of the car. Layer up - I use both a wool headband and a scarf - mitte... Read more
Thankful Thursday
Thursday, February 11, 2021      8 comments

I am thankful the hot water heater lasted as long as it did, but it's past its expected end of life. I am thankful the snow hasn't been enough to stop my trips taking boxes of stuff to the new house. It may have slowed it down, but it hasn'... Read more
Monday, Monday

Monday again and I really don't feel like doing anything, but I will go to work and pack the car with more boxes and drive them out to the new house after work. The inspector left the ceiling fan in the office turned on and I couldn't reach... Read more
Sunday and inspection today

The buyers have their inspector coming over today - they will come over, too and keep an eye on the cats to make sure they don't get out of the apartment - we will put them in DS's bedroom with some food and water before we leave and inspector w... Read more

It's Friday again - hooray, I think. I haven't been out to the new house all week between cleaning up after the snowstorm and more nasty weather yesterday, so I am really hoping the forecast is right and there won't be anything other than cold a... Read more
Thursday Thanks
Thursday, February 04, 2021      14 comments

I am thankful the sale of my old house is moving along. I am thankful I managed to get all the snow cleared off before the next one hits today. I am thankful I don't have anywhere I "have" to go on snowy days. I am thankful my fri... Read more
Happy Hump Day

I went over to my lawyer's office and signed the contract for selling my old house. Now the pressure to finish packing will really set in. Closing date is set for April 1st. No joke. That gives them two full months to vacate their apartment, but... Read more
Tuesday and Groundhog Day
Tuesday, February 02, 2021      10 comments

Do you think of Bill Murray when you hear those words? I must admit, I do not. I am so done with winter this year and it's only half over. Unfortunately, the forecast for here calls for sun in the morning, so the local groundhog will probably se... Read more
Monday and a new month
Monday, February 01, 2021      14 comments

February is here, the shortest month of the year. The snow can stop any time now - I'm not sure I have any place to put any more. I'm not sore this morning, just really sick of shoveling. I looked at the 10-day forecast and partly-to-mostly... Read more

It's the end of January - and it snowed from about 3:30 Saturday afternoon until at least 6 Sunday night. Even with the neighbor two doors south using his snow-blower on my driveway, I still spent well over 3 hours shoveling and didn't even get ... Read more
Last Friday of January
Friday, January 29, 2021      12 comments

Already? Where did the month go? I haven't gotten nearly as much packed and moved as I hoped to have done by now. Time to get my act together. Besides getting more stuff packed, I need to go grocery shopping for a few more things. I will pr... Read more
Thursday Thinks

I think convenience is overrated sometimes - like it's convenient to have some bills auto-charge to your credit card and you only pay one bill - until you lose your card and have to find all those auto things and give them the new card number. ... Read more
Wednesday and already tired
Wednesday, January 27, 2021      13 comments

It did not start snowing as early on Monday as predicted, but I'm still glad I stayed at the old house. It snowed all night and all day Tuesday - probably about 8 inches total as I could barely push the back door open far enough to get out so I ... Read more
Monday and snow on the way
Monday, January 25, 2021      7 comments

Interesting - the forecast for the old house is 5-8 inches of snow starting about 4 PM today and the forecast at the new house is for 4-7 inches. It is also currently 11F colder at the new house! I'm thinking I will just stay put tonight instead... Read more
Sunday and back to the old house
Sunday, January 24, 2021      5 comments

Back at the old house tonight. They are predicting a snow storm tomorrow, so I might be here until Wed night. Or even Friday night based on how much snow they are predicting. It might take me a few days to dig out.... Read more
