I think this was Thursday morning, but I won't swear to it.
I am still sick and foggy, but better than I was a week ago.
Anyways--woke up to a little snow!!!
Love it! Love it!! Love it!!
You may recall my whining about no snow last year.
Everything seemed to miss us so it was mostly a brown winter--yuck! (Not good for septic tanks and water pipes up here, either.)
I was delighted to see it sparkling and hope to see more.
Karma was thrilled, too.
Leah said I slept through a mini-blizzard that morning. (Yes! I have been sleeping--tada!!) The snow blew hard enough to come over and right through the screen door. I cracked the patio door open a few inches so that Karma could pretend she was out on the porch...
...but from the comfort of her soft, warm carpet. She loved it!
I didn't get a picture, but she ate her fill of the white fluffy snow, too. She was one happy cat!
And the next morning...bunny tracks! And there might be some tiny grouse prints along the edge of the snow there. What fun!
Anyways, been in the 20s.
Quite crispy out there.
Leah and Ian came over for a short visit on Wednesday afternoon. Ian sat for a little while with Gramma and watched one of his favorite programs--Wild China--on Netflix. He took some time to become reacquainted with his toys in his toy shelves here. But, in the end, Ian always finds Karma's cat toy container more interesting,. Of course, right? LOL! It's so nice that he actually likes to come to Gramma's place now...where we can shut the door to all those tempting art & craft supplies so he's free to run around. Ahhhh! We love it, too!
All I have managed to do all week is finally do laundry (had to-no more socks or underpants) and cook up some hotdishes. The crummy news...yesterday I had a piece of a molar break off when I was eating toast so I have to call the dentist's on Monday. That tooth is more filling than actual tooth so I expect it means another tooth might be pulled. Gosh I hate going to the dentist. *shudders*
It doesn't hurt at all, though, so that's good. Or at least not enough to break through past all the regular pain level. (But you may recall I had an abscessed molar years ago that I never noticed till my face swelled up--LOL!)
Oh, and you'll laugh! The broken piece of tooth is sharp as can be and was rubbing against the side of my tongue. Hurt like hell. You don't realize how your tongue moves back and forth every time you swallow. By this morning my tongue felt like raw meat. A solution came to me as I was waking up, as happens so often (do believe I get help from GA). I took a piece of that wall tack stuff to hold up posters, etc, and put it over the sharp piece of tooth. Worked like a charm! What a relief. I'll have to chew on the other side, of course, but if it falls off...well, I have a whole lot more poster tack--ROFL! How wonderful to be able to swallow without feeling like you are slicing your tongue to pieces. Makes one appreciate one's normal, everyday pain level, eh? ;) Everything is relative.
Anyways, Leah is coming over alone tomorrow to work on Christmas cards again. Sadly, I have not felt well enough to work on them in the meantime. Am at least semi-functional now, though. Back up to daily living skills most days, anyways--ROFL! When I don't take the decongestant or the sleep aide (had to try, right?)...I become snot-woman and can't sleep well. So I have a feeling this is going to hang on for a while longer. I'm past the worst of it, though, now--I think. Hallelujah!! Hoping to get back to my normal in a week or so...maybe less? I am always hopeful. :)
Karma is snoring lightly on the chair here--curled up between my legs. Her feet are kicking every so often. She may be dreaming she is actually catching the sparrows and grouse and rabbits that loom before her on her IMAX CatTV. Karma can be optimistic, too. Just not that often--LOL!
Well, have a very good weekend!
I'd love to see a really white Thanksgiving this year.
Hey! I shouldn't be contagious anymore so I can send out lots of love and hugs! ;) :)
