Post 617: weather will change…snow way!

We had a little snow yesterday. It brings out a very lazy streak in me when I am snowed in. I can make use of that time in productive ways around the house. Or, I can screw off the whole day!

Well, I screwed off the whole day. I hope you aren’t too disappointed. I’m a retiree, after all, and you might assume I just described my usual day!

As usual, there were long drifts blocking the front and back doors. Sort of. "Enough", anyway, to pretend I couldn't get out.

Oh, I did wash a bunch of dishes, pots, and pans. It was that or serve the cats supper on a paper plate. They aren’t fussy about things as long as it’s food-like. Hunh! Typical males! And I must spend all of 20 seconds preparing their delightful wet food meal with Lysine supplement, twice a day.

Of course, the little darlings eat off old Gordon Ramsey-designed plates, never paper! I retired that set because too many bowls (especially) and plates started to show chips. I replaced them with Corelle® ware, which is more chip resistant, not to mention lighter weight, no small matter for older people lifting the dang things. Not me…,”older people”!

Dougy checked out the snow, of course, but neither he nor Andy wanted to actually go out in it.

I checked the snow for depth, in case I changed my mind about getting out. I decided the boys could use their current litter a couple more days if I carefully cleaned out any offerings. (As if they have a choice! Hee! Hee!)

My Christmas tree is decorated with snow and winter birds.

So it goes. Here’s the view outside my computer window. I love that fir tree with all the passion Nebraskans have for trees. It’s an obscene level of love, irrational to a degree we will put curses on people who cut down or harm a favorite tree. Hssst! Your crucifix won’t save you here! Put away the holy water, too.

I thought I’d post more on my paternal great grandmother yesterday. Then it snowed. Today, I had that to report. Maybe I’ll get back to family history tomorrow, but don’t hold your breath or cross your fingers or you might get cramps!
