Snow and Cold

Good morning

Winter Wonderland?  Not quite.  I took this picture through the storm door in our kitchen last week.  It was really cold.  Really, really cold last week. 
Driving wasn't as bad as it might have been, though.  The streets were dry surely because it had been warm the days before so the snow didn't stick to the pavement.  This image is of the parkway a few blocks from our home.  We drove this route from our home to the hospital area where we had a routine appointment that morning.  No problems with the drive at all.

However, all was not well.  A day or so later, about bed time, we noticed the house was getting very cold.  The temperature that night went down to 9F and our furnace wasn't working.  It was too late to call the repair folks, so I fired up the fireplace and we bundled up with afghans, comforters, and cuddly dogs.  With the fireplace I was able to get the temperature up to 55F inside the house.  Not bad!

The next day the furnace guys arrived and solved the problem.  We are warm and toasty now.  All is good.

It's that time of the year....

Wendy's Weekend

Good morning,

We are very proud of our Wendy.  She had great fun this weekend.

Very often she gets first place ribbons, but it's the fun that counts!

Autumn Moon

Good morning,

The moon was so very pretty when I had Penny out a few evenings ago.
There are jet trails in the sky...
...and a halo around the moon.

So pretty!

Good morning,

Happy Birthday to Don!

We've gotten old enough around here that only one candle is enough.

Mousie's Bath

Good morning,

That's Elsa in the image above giving her Mousie a bath in her water bowl.
Mousie doesn't look very excited about this!
He's doing the back stroke very well, but I came to his rescue.

Baby Elsa is so much fun!
