Going down into the deep freeze

I took a bathroom break around 3:00 a.m. on Tuesday and noticed it was snowing.  But, when I woke up at 5:30 a.m., I learned the storm had went south of us and we had less than an inch of snow here.

However, it was 7 degrees! So, I dug out my goose down coat, a hat and my gloves before I left for work. I took the trash can out to the road and then took off.

The snow was on top of yesterday’s ice, so the ride in was dicey.

I went to Ten Yen for lunch and got my favorite. I was the only one in the restaurant, so my food came fast!

It warmed up to 20 degrees by the time I went home at 5:00 p.m. I got the trash can in and a box off the front porch (I was tipped off by the footprints in the snow) I went inside. That’s when I discovered Caley had barfed on the bedspread.

So, instead of relaxing, I cleaned up the mess, sprayed it with Shout and started a load of laundry. Grrr…

I opened the box and found a can of O’Keeffe’s Working Hands, the hand cream Carla told me about. She obviously ordered some for me. Thanks!

I warmed up the roasted sausage, potatoes and Brussels sprouts for my dinner.

I watched both NCIS and NCIS New Orleans and then got ready for bed. Before I went to sleep, though, I put an extra blanket on the bed and rubbed in some hand cream.


  1. I'm glad you got the cream. I hope it helps.

  2. John, let me know if it works........
    Thanks for taking care of the OLD Man, Carla

  3. @ Carla: Thanks again!
    @GPF: Who you calling "OLD"? You're seven years older than me and not nearly so pretty!

  4. No problem Uncle Carl, I got my eye on him ;)

  5. @ Carla: Somebody needs to be watching me, I guess...
