A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE....
Very cold, but no wind. With Barb's help, we flew through chores.
Gucci stayed in the barn with me and Phoebe went back in the house.
L'orange wandered out, but I didn't get any pictures of him. Last night Thor (below) went into the basement and was causing a ruckus. They kept waking me up.
Just can't handle winter this year...
I went to the basement to check on Bermuda. He was at the top of the stairs in his bed.
Below is Thor (has a bobbed tail)! He is huge and hisses at me if I go near him. L'orange and he don't seem to like each other at all. Thinks he owns the joint. Just what I need...another cat. I have no idea where he comes from, but this is about the 5th year he has shown up. Only in the winter.
At 1pm we had to be in Hamlin for a Memorial Service being held for a 43 year old friend of our oldest daughter. One of the most incredible turn outs I have ever seen...maybe 600 or more. The church was packed and there were people standing everywhere. A real testimonial to what he meant to his family and friends. It sure makes you stop and think. During the service the sun broke through the grey day and streamed through the stained glass windows.
On the way home, the sky was getting clearer and clearer.
Main Street in the village was pretty quiet.
Can you see through those dirty spots on my windshield? (Gary was driving).
Home a little after 4.
Barb showed up for chores as the sun started going down.
Gary started up the fire...I want to finish a book and do nothing.
Right now it is barely 10 degrees...may go down to 3 tonight.
Glad I don't have chore duty.
Night all. I'm signing off early.
