Woke up to lots of snow.

Just went out to start my car and clean it off and couldn't get in! The door is frozen shut!! I guess I won't go anywhere yet...

Exploding eggs, I know!
My mil boiled the water away when she was cooking egga a couple of years ago.
She was using one of those pyrex saucepans.
The eggs exploded, the pan shattered, and there was egg mess all over the wall and counter.
She had to repaint.
What a mess!
I was really lucky to catch them before anything bad happened.
Wow, least. That is cold!
It’s still nice here—I went for a walk along the canal.
Breezy but fine.
I replenished the bird feeders because temps are expected to drop tonight and tomorrow.
Nothing worse than filling feeders when it’s really cold.
Caturday!

The sun came out so we went for a drive. The lakes were lovely but no deer or eagles today.

Pork roast is in the oven and it's time for my nap. Zzzzz.

Least - I hope there is success soon.

Ann - I love baked spaghetti - you really gotta go some to ruin it, but our boy managed to. I hope you found something else to munch on.
Nap! Better not oversleep or we'll have blackened pork roast.

Speaking of filling feeders - MrH is in a battle with a squirrel. I swear the squirrel is taunting him & daring him to catch him. We put our Christmas tree on the deck & put birdseed in it. It's such a pretty scene - but this rascally squirrel has discovered it & now none of the birds will go there. He also sits his fat self in the tray feeder & munches on the food. I might have to get out my squirt gun, but don't want to give him a chill....

Chic - Yes, there were excellent bargains - but I feel kind of guilty for fighting an elderly woman for the last of the good wrapping paper. She finally let go after a 10 minute struggle. Narrowly avoided store security.

I am obsessed with his failure to poop today! I keep taking him out but all he does is pee.

Bro came and visited, also he shoveled my driveway after just barely getting up it. He had to put it in first and crawl up the incline.

I am sick of snow!!!

whine whine whine....

I couldn't get in on my laptop tonight. Something about cloud issues.

That was nice of your brother, Least. I like condo life because that's all taken care of.

I can't wait until spring comes.

Not yet. I hope I wake up to his house-poop tomorrow. That would make me happy. I worry so about my sweet old man.

I hope Jack delivers least.
Despite of how well I am doing (which a lot of people tell me I am- body and mind) the unnatural default of feeling like trash shadows me. At such times- I force myself to do something productive- so as not to stagnate or isolate..both dangerous pre- empts to relapse.

(((PJ))) I think you're doing well. Despite the setbacks, you know what to do to protect yourself.

Well, Jack house-pooped this morning.

You are using your obstacles to propel you forward, PJ. Sort of like sauna pants gone right! That's recovery, sauna pants style.
