It is 14 degrees outside tonite. Mother Nature really needs an attitude adjustment.
Even with the cold temps, I am finding out that popsicles are a good thing. Popsicles are also addicting. Just ask my kids who are feeding my addiction.
A cleaning lady who will swamp out the inside of my refrigerator without being asked is worth her weight in gold.
I think I may be little bit burned out in the crochet department. Time to do something else for a while. Maybe work on the stacks of quilt pieces waiting to be sewn together.
A train had five cars jump the tracks. I live half a block from the railroad tracks. I am glad the derailment occurred on the other end of town away from any houses. Small blessings are good.
Granddaughter Boston was in a dance competition this week. Her Dad called to tell me that of the three highest awards in the tap dancing category, one of them went to Boston. Way to go, girl!! Grandma is proud of you.
The three youngest grands, Boston, Maddie and Jacob, called me a few days ago. There was no special reason. Just wanted to know how I was doing and to tell me what they had been up to. I love those calls.
More snow is on the way Sunday. I now understand why the 'global warming' people changed their tune and now talk about 'climate change.' Not much warming going on here.
I have all the sympathy in the world for those kids who lived through the school shooting in Florida. But I truly hope the 15 minutes of fame is nearly at an end for those few who think they know best when it comes to gun control. I wonder if they know how badly they are being used by the gun hating politicians.
I believe it is time to do some baking. I'm thinking chocolate chip cookies and maybe a batch of cupcakes. Chocolate with chocolate buttercream frosting. One can never, ever have too much chocolate.
And that's pretty much the extent of the excitement here in my little home sweet apartment. Next week may be even more exciting. I hear we might have a warming trend. Might hit 40 degrees. Happy dance time!
