I sat here today in my bedroom watching it snow. My area was supposed to get the most accumulation again but it wasn't expected to be a lot. Between one and two inches and they were right. The ground was covered when we got up but the temps got ... Read more

Yesterday I looked at the forecast for the rest of the week and decided I better make a trip to the metro east area to get my chinchilla supplies and Sam's food. The National Weather Service says we are going to get into one of our funky weather... Read more

Today was sunny and above freezing again so it didn't feel too bad outside but it was a muddy, mucky, gloppy, sloppy, slippy, slidey mess outside so not too much fun doing chores or trying to walk. I guess it would be good if you wanted to mud w... Read more

I didn't sleep very well last night so I'm a little tired today. I was planning on resting but my hubby noticed that we had a moldy loaf of bread this morning so I ended up having to go to town today instead of tomorrow. He loves oat bread and m... Read more

It was sunny today for a change but the warm temps from the past 2 days were chased off by a cold front that went through. We were left with temps below freezing all day and a brisk wind. We went for a walk anyway. It wasn't pleasant but w... Read more

It was so warm today - 59 degrees, dark, cloudy, and windy. It was a perfect way to end this year. I loved it!!! We have been under a tornado watch most of the day. Hubby and I managed to get a nice long walk in before it started to rain. I talk... Read more

It rained today and started melting some of the snow. It's slick and muddy outside. It was the day to clean the 6 pet cages and several of the chinchillas wanted to help. LOL. We then vacuumed. I'm glad we cleaned the bathroom yesterday. ... Read more

This morning I opened the bedroom blinds to see a bunch of squirrels scurrying up and down trees, birds covering the suet and sunflower feeders, and 6 deer eating in the backyard woods. We saw lots of deer today. Life is good. It got near 4... Read more
