Good evening, friends!!

Hope you're all having a nice night!!

Adrian & I just got back from a really nice diiner. We went to a local steak & seafood restaurant w/ an Irish flair. It had excellent food, and had great atmosphere. We split some fried cheese curds...yum! Then, I had a filet, garlic mashed potatoes, and snow peas. Adrian had a candied garlic sirloin, garlic mashed, and baby carrots. So full right now!

Very relieved to hear that you're all doing well & staying safe and warm. Take good care.

Our winter storm is starting to move in. Nothing like y'all have experienced, though. We're expecting up to 4 inches of snow, high winds, sleet and freezing rain. Because of this, we decided against going to La Crosse, and are staying home tomorrow.

Have a great rest of your weekends!! God bless.

That would have been a blast !!! xo

Lovely evening here...mild temps, but weather moving in later....Daughter, son-in-law and our darling little grandson here to visit. That little guy keeps us on our toes, but oh do we love him! Fighting off a cold with some tea and honey~ hope all of you are safe and sound that were in the path of Nemo.
Sweet dreams!

xmas and MerryCarey - so glad to see you both are posting. That is a lot of snow!

We ended up with six inches or so Thursday/Friday in my area - there were reports of upwards of a foot or more closer to the Bay and Lake Huron. The driveway is all shoveled out - no snow maze for me, but there are a few trails for the cats to follow. Bottle showed up the other day and so did an even bigger cat. He looks to be twice the size of my largest cat, Elsa. The new cat is a grey and white tabby - adorable! Shaggy got loose yesterday - he is so big he climbs up the side of the porch - no stairs for him. He is such a goofball! He escorted me back to his dog house and let himself be put back on the chain with nary a fuss. I don't like having him on a chain, but he is part wolf. There is no way he would survive in the house. He sleeps outside of his house in rain, sleet and snow. The only time he uses the house is when it is 10 or more below zero and in the summer when it is too hot out.

Mouse seems a bit off of late - I hope it is just because it has been colder the past few weeks. As I type this, Palmer is on a box under the chair I am sitting on - she is helping me The girls have actually been getting along fairly well for the past few days - yay!!!

It has been a very busy week for me. To top it off, the furnace is still not working right. My neighbor has been down here several times and replaced a few things and cleaned the burners, but can't figure out what is wrong. The new igniter he installed has already partially shorted out, too. We are supposed to check the code when it fails to stay lit, but a code hasn't flashed yet. Usually by the time we get downstairs, the furnace reignites and is fine. It is very frustrating, but at least there is still heat. I'm not sure how it is working, but it is - yay!!! I really do not want to see the bill when all is said and done, though!

Time to return the computer.

Have a MERRY evening!!!!


I hope your furnace problems get solved and that you all stay warm !! xo
