Is it ever going to warm up?

This is getting to be the same old record playing over and over again - it's still cold and I'm still tired of it. Okay - that's all I'm going to say about that - I could go on and on but why when you all know how I feel about this weather - so I'm not going to harp on it tonight.

We went over to a friends house for dinner tonight and boy did we have some good food - thanks so very much Jewel - it was really good! For those of you that weren't there - we had pork and rice, white acre peas, fried green tomatoes (yes, I did have a little fried food), fresh green beans, and yellow squash, along with homemade biscuits and cornbread - Yum, Yum! I even got to bring home leftovers that we will have for lunch tomorrow. We didn't stay at Jewel's too late - Dan had to come home and unhook the water hose (BTW - the set up Dan did last night worked well - unhooking the water hose - having the "tent" over the water spigot with the light under it - nothing froze up) and get the unit ready for another cold night. We did enjoy our evening - our other friends Bud and Joyce were there also. It is nice to be able to be with friends again (think I have said that before, but it is nice - Dan and I have missed being with them!)

We had to go into town today for just a little while - we needed more propane in the other tank - so we went in about 12:45 and the co-op was closed (they closed at 12 noon) so we went over to Live Oak Gas Company (where we got propane the other day), but they were closed too. However, they had some people there working and they agreed to fill the tank for us. That was really nice of them to do that - they certainly didn't have to, but I guess with the temperatures the way they have been they don't want to turn people away. Anyway, I thought that was very nice of them and that is one of the advantages of living in a small town.

We also went to Ken's Bar-B-Que for lunch - we both had 1/4 of chicken (Dan had white meat, I had dark meat), Dan had a baked potato and unsweet tea - I had green beans and a coke. Cost about $20.00 with tip - but it was very good.

That's about all that we did today - oh, I don't think that I told you that I got the cover for my new nook - it is really working out well - I feel a lot better about protecting the Nook. BTW, Crystal and Kim, I finished Lovely Bones and am now reading Under the Dome by Stephen King. I do love my Nook!

Well, I'm going to sing off for tonight. I hope you all stay warm and -----------------

I'll talk to you tomorrow!


  1. What did you think about "Lovely Bones"?

    It was great to hear from Dad yesterday! He sounds so much better! I hope he can stick with the diet (even though I'm not one to talk about diets), but it will help so much with his health in general! I'm practicing my speech to my future patients...boy, are they in for it! hahahaha Hopefully, I won't lose many going home against medical advice or make them want to jump (that is a long way down from the 8th floor)!

    I'll check in later and let ya'll know how my week is going! I'm a bit on edge today...just nerves from the unknown!

    Love ya and stay warm!

  2. You are going to do a GREAT job - don't worry and just go with your gut and you'll be fine. The unknown is a little intimidating (ask me, I get it every couple of months or so and have a BIG one coming in May) but just be open to it. Have fun and we'll be looking for updates on how your week is going. Love you too!


Rainy, Dreary Days
