It was colder on Wednesday, but the wind wasn't blowing as hard, so the "feels like" temperature was about the same: TOO DAMN COLD!!!

I went to Applebee's for lunch and got my usual: Three cheese chicken cavatappi and French onion soup. I broke my own rule and ordered coffee with it (so I could warm up my hands while waiting for my food).

I stopped at CVS on the way back and bought this year's humidifier. I usually do this in December, but winter snuck up on me this year.

Back home after work, I noticed that the bird feeder was almost empty, the squirrel feeder was empty and the suet was gone. Sigh...

So, I suited back up and filled everything. I didn't wear gloves and my hands were numb when I got back inside.

I set up the humidifier and turned it on. I watched the rest of the news until 7:00 p.m., then I made dinner.

I grilled a salami and cheese sandwich, like Carla made for me. Mine didn't taste as good as hers did, because I only had American cheese. She used some deli cheese.

I read until the hockey game came on, then I watched that until I fell asleep. I found out in the morning the Red Wings won 4-0.


  1. I stopped at CVS on the way back and bought this year's humidifier.

    Don't seem to make them like they used to. I was surprised how ineffective they were for the price.

  2. This one seems okay. I have resigned myself to buying a new one every year. I was going to pay Scott pace to put in a whole house one, mounted on the furnace. But, I keep remembering the one I installed at the St. Clair house. It crudded up and stopped working in one season. So, I buy these throwaways.
