Good morning

Temp is -22° F here!! :P

Laundry day and it will be a race to see what freezes first the bedding or my fingers! May try the Chop suey loaf today.

Jane, I sent the card to her apartment. I am sure someone will be picking up her mail.

Shirley, thank you for the great update on Gloria. The food should be better now. :)

Phyllis, that sounds like a rib sticking soup!!  We really enjoy a soup like that ,a meal in one bowl.

Better put an egg in my boot and beat it. Speaking of eggs ,when I visited the neighbour she sent home another dozen of colourful eggs plus a piece of smoked pork!! May us the pork in Phyllis's soup!

Enjoy your day and stay safe!

Yesterday I received a message from AngelFace that she is in terrible pain in leg and hip and can't walk at all. Maybe arthritis but it sounds so much worse. She was thinking of   calling an ambulance. I told her not to wait, but I am sure that her cat is very much on her mind, since Ferrah is so fearful of strangers. Hopefully I'll hear better news tomorrow.

Amy we are not as bad temp. wise as you, but we are on 1º here now with a -22º below wind chill. well cow has hay and a place to drink So couch jockey for me.
Stayin and stay safe. I hope you are doing your wash inside and drying in side also. I can reamer as a chelid getting frost bite while walking 3 Miles out to my aunts house. she drew a pan of cold water and Made me put my hands in it.
sure stung for a while bot took the hurt away. she made me stay there all night and uncle take me home the next day in the car.  they are saying on T V news to put your hands in warm water if you get frost bite, things sure change? Have a rest of the day good and safe.



Greetings from cold and dreary Colorado!  BURRRR

Good to read the positive news about GLORIA, but not good to read that PATRICIA is not doing well.  Leg and hip pain and can not walk....frightening sounding. I do hope if she got some help, and that someone will look in on Farrah😩

AMY, memories of hanging  clothing /sheet / diapers out on the line and what freezes first!  The answer is BOTH at the same time!  I hope you got the job done and nothing is permanently is damaged on your body!  Not fun and not one bit jealous of you today my friend😘

We were invited to Dave and Michele's for a Valentine dinner celebration but declined.....much to risky to be getting out in this weather.

I hope EVERYFRIEND is staying safe and warm🥰

Jenny, the bedding blew dry in no time. Turned out although cold it was a lovely sunny day with a light breeze!!

Bubble, sorry to hear that Patricia is having such pain... must be in the air. I woke up this morning with both knees feeling like they were run over by a car, wheel right on the joints! 

Patricia, I do know the concern about leaving our fur babies..... that kept me home the 2 & half weeks of COVID. (((hugs))) to you and Farrah.

I finally Googled foods that arthritis hates and seems it's everything I've been hungry for lately. And I thought we needed to listen to what our body wanted/needed. So much for that theory.  I have gone overboard for anything citrus since having COVID... figured with it being winter I really needed the vitamin C ... guess I'll try cutting back. Besides that I've been eating potatoes any & every way possible (real potatoes), not to count the sweets. I couldn't have done more damage if I intentionally shopped to FEED Arthur!!!  Hope you find a quick fix for your pain, Patricia, and can settle back to the good life.

Jenny, I had a quick look at the view cams in Salida & Buena Vista and shocked there's almost NO SNOW either place. Those forests will sure be dry next summer if they don't get moisture soon. I told the boys I'm not going but can't imaging having a summer without at least ONE trip to the mountains. We'll see. They are planning to go, Andy & Pete & not sure how many others. They feel like at least in the woods COVID will be out of mind a little. Last year they put their masks on & went into town to bring back special foods. My oxygen problem kept me from enjoying the trip like normal, but we didn't feel we needed to "mask up" as long as it was just family around.

Sorry Michele had to go through another surgery. Thought about you this last week when my neighbor's parents moved across the street from us. I have met them enough times to feel like part of the family & a smile every time I see one of them walking across the street. So wish that for you & your father.... but we don't get everything we wish for, do we?

Amy, I remember having diapers freeze on the line in England and all the women kept telling me how "nice & white" freezing made them. But it was 3 flights down the steps to hang them & more often than not, they weren't dry so would hang them around the little electric wall heater & take them back out the next day. The next house we rented had a fireplace so they weren't quite as much trouble.... but I didn't get a dryer until the 3rd kid was born!!!!


Just dropping by to wish you all a good night.  This will probably be full of errors because I'm typing with my eyes closed and half asleep.  My sister called a little after 10 and we just hung up.  We've done a lot of "remembering the past" and "looking at the future" and now we're going to bed in the "present".

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy, germ-free,  snow-free tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

News from AngelFace- Patricia
I called an ambulance yesterday and had a full workup, X-rays, etc. I have a badly sprained left foot, and the pain radiates through the entire leg. I have a walker, but it's excruciating, and I spend the time with the foot elevated. They are hesitant to give me meds as I have side effects or the opposite effect. The instructions say three to four weeks, but I'm hoping the pain lessens sooner. It's mainly, I believe, the radiated pain. I'm basically bedridden right now but hope to be better soon.


In the news today: Powerful Quake Hits Japan, off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture.

Isn't that where Sachiko lived? It's been a long time since we heard from her...
Actually no news from Sato either.
Is anyone in contact with him, her?


Good snowy morning..

Happy Valentines Day to  you..

Looks like I shall be dancing again...4" of fluffy snow fell overnight. Not sure what the rest of the day will bring.....day of rest here.

Bubble, thank you for the update on Patricia/Angleface. A sprain is just as bad if not worse than a break. Hope healing is swift.

Jane, fun to catch up with your family. I intend to call my niece that lives in PEI to see how they are doing with all the snow.

Shirley,foods play a roll in feeding Arthur big time.......tomatoes are another culprit too and salt doesn't help much either..

Better get my dancing clothes on.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Well, we were supposed to get a lot of "gunk" beginning around midnight and lasting into the morning hours.  It didn't happen!  HOORAY!  There were all kinds of weather warnings and warnings to to watch for poor driving conditions.  The roads are dry and nothing came out of the sky!

However, there is still a warning for tomorrow night into Tuesday and another one for the end of the week.  I hope it doesn't prevent the airplane from landing this week because they rescheduled my appointment for covid vaccine for Friday of this coming up week!

I'm including PATRICIA in my prayers and hoping she gets relief soon!  Not being able to abide the possible relief medicines is a real handicap! 

AMY, be careful while you're dancing.  Don't let that guy lead!  He might take a misstep and that wouldn't be good.

I wish everyone a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

I stopped by earlier and must have forgotten to post my thoughts for the day! Checked temps & it keeps going DOWN....now at 3°  with feels like of -14°. (Near noon).  No warm up until next week end. I hate to think of what that pool will look like come spring. Don't recall we ever had it this cold for this long. Flurries today, no idea how much has fallen, but the wind is blowing enough to move it into drifts so a big problem for highway & street crews (besides the super cold those poor guys face).  As Pollyanna would mention, though, "enough snow to go down the hill"... but might crack & fall apart at the bottom.  ???  :-\

Bubble, I don't remember exactly where Sachiko or Sato lived, she posed a photo of Mt.Fuji? one time that was gorgeous, taken from her house. They had a "cabin" somewhere else, but they both belonged to the same camera group at one time. I'm the world's worst about remembering places. It is a fact that the "underworld" has been doing some major rumbling the last couple years.

Amy, I've been kicking myself for not paying attention to my cravings lately.... never had any reason before to think about arthritis diet but knew Cas' gout was some of the same foods. Guess it's my turn to beware.  :tissue:

We have that dry, fine show coming down right now... the kind that sneaks up and causes big problems. It doesn't make noise like rain so all of a sudden everything is covered.

Well, doggies, I heated a plate of spaghetti & forgot to eat. Came over to look out the door & fascinated by the depth of snow, sat down at the computer & mind when "poof".... Almost a white-out right now. Sure hope we don't lose power with this COLD WEATHER.


Happy Valentine's Day, Everyfriend  :smitten:

Shirley, I think it's a "given" that the foods we crave most aren't good for things that "Can't Be Cured So Must Be Endured".  :tickedoff:

Your weather started moving in here overnight.  Fortunately, the snow is "fluffy" and the newspaper was close
enough to the garage door that I could use the pushbroom to "scoop" it toward me without having to go out in the snow.
Another storm is supposed to move in from the west Tuesday/Wednesday.  Weather predictions for the next 10 days aren''t good.

Church services have been live via Facebook video for quite a while.  This morning's services were live from the homes of the two pastors.  Not sure how they did that but it worked.

#2 son/dil brought milk and yogurt from Braum's yesterday morning but weren't able to find bread, peanut butter or eggs.  Dil had been to Super Walmart on Friday and said the meat, dairy and bread aisles were totally empty.  Fortunately, I'd had a big grocery order delivered earlier in the week so I'm not out of anything.  May have to "ration" a few things but that's okay.

#1 son popped in yesterday afternoon with a beautiful bouquet of red roses. 

Was glad I'd baked Applesauce Muffins earlier and could send some home with all of them.

Stay warm and safe, Everyfriend.


Sounds like you all got the weather that was predicted for us for this weekend.  My daughter who lives outside of Tulsa, OK, sent me a picture of the icicles hanging from her spouting in the back of her house.  She said it's freezing cold where she is. 

It's also cold here but so far, clear.  I'm hoping it stays that way until tomorrow night because my Maryland daughter had an extra day off and decided to come up here.  She won't be safely home until late tomorrow afternoon. 

I hope PATRICIA is feeling better today!

BUBBLE, I don't know where in Japan either of our friends live but I've also been missing them on S&F.  I wonder what took them away!

CALLIE, it sounds like your kids are keeping tabs on you, too.  It's nice that you send goodies home with them when they stop by to check up on you.  That kind of proves to them that you're doing OK. 

I got two chickens from Christy and her husband when she came up today.  She said they're not the best...a little on the tough side.  She suggested that I might stew them and use them for my homemade dog food.  I'll save some for potpie or soup when I do that.  Now please remember, in PA Dutch country, potpie is NOT pie.  It's dough in a pot.  Now I'm hungry for some!

I'm off to the haystack.  I did a lot today.  Nothing that really shows except for a nice supper and two more meals for another time.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy, germ-free tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Like most EVERYFRIEND, we, too, are in the deep freeze and will be for a few more days.  Unfortunately we did not get very much snow and when the shoveler arrived they came with blowers and the snow blew off looking like dust!  No moisture in this round! 😩

Thank you, BUBBLE for the update from Patricia.  It sure doesn't sound good and I am very concerned how she is going to care for herself and Farrah😩😩. Sure hope someone can look in and help her out. Positive thoughts and prayers for her to heal soon.

I heard about the earthquake in Japan and immediately thought about our friends there.  I do hope they are all OK. 🙏

AMY, I was happy to read your laundry dried well for you yesterday😘
Good to read you are at least getting a decent amount of accumulation so you can get a good dance in with the snowblower.

JANE, I think a lot of us did not get anywhere near the amount of snow that was predicted.  Sometimes it is just too cold to even snow! 

SHIRLEY, I hope that snow doesn't drift and cover over your home!  I seem to forget to post more often than I want to admit.  Mostly I get called away and forget to come back🤪

How sweet, CALLIE.  Red roses for a pretty mama🌹🌹🌹🌹

Almost another holiday over and done.

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND🥱😴🥱😴
