I am soooo jealous!!! I wish so much to be there instead of freezing my keister off here in South Dakota!

I do the same thing. And I take it also to Winthrop with me if I am going to be eating lunch there. I also bring my own supply of sugar. Decaffeinated coffee with artificial sweetener just doesn't cut it for me.

I made a beef stew today. For the salt, all I used was what the Better Than Bullion provided. I am sure a lot of folks would have said it needed salt, but not for me.

I agree. I spent the last two weeks sleeping on an air mattress at our daughter's. Technically, it was two mattresses. She had borrowed a second one from a coworker and she stacked them. This made it a bit more like a bed so that I wasn't so close to the floor when I had to get up. Worked good enough, but I was overjoyed to see my little futon when we got in this morning. The air mattresses sure let you sink down into them - that is, if you don't have it so inflated as to bounce off if you sneeze! Someone might think my futon mattress is one step softer than a prison cot but it works for my back and prevents leg cramps.

Hope you weren't crying when you got off the plane. Wouldn't want your face to freeze like that, would you?

Interesting. I thought we had a lot. Over 6 ft so far.
And it's only January 6th.

Looks like you're in the Chardon of northwestern PA! Cleveland averages about 62 inches of snow a year. Where we used to live gets about 40% more - around 85 inches. Then there is Chardon, way east of Cleveland, that regularly gets double measure of Cleveland snow. No thanks!

Going to bed for the fourth time today. I hope to sleep longer than 5 hours tonight. Heck, it might take me the whole month to get my sleep schedule back on track.

Just finished up a bag of Stacy's cinnamon-sugar pita chips. Problem was, it was 4x1 serving size left in the bag.

Going to spend the next hour dozing through Castle with my kitty snuggled on my lap. If she's willing to leave Himself, that is! Then off to bed. I hope.

I've still been sleeping but not so much now. I will lose Papa in six hours when he boards his flight. I spent all day with him and I'm just not ready to let him go.

I am in a very unhappy mood right now, but I do hope all of you are happy and getting better. I haven't forgotten any of you. Please forgive me.

With love,
~Cat

Sheesh! You guys didn't even notice I was gone!

Strangely enough, Mexico has internet and I could lurk...

Naw, just the drag marks froze. Dang, it's cold! Bless the jeep, it protested a bit, but it started, and got us home! Get to pick up Beagle from the boarder tomorrow!
