Brrr! It’s cold here in our neck of the woods! We’ve been having a cold spell for the past three days. This morning, the frost is so thick on our daughter’s roof, it looked like snow. The thermometer says 27 degrees, but it feels much colder than that! It’s Monday, and that means it’s time to join Heather for the Monday Quiz.
Here are today’s questions:
1. Who was the last person you said ‘I love you to?’
My hubby, Ed.
2. What was the last non-kid friendly movie you saw?
I’m not sure. It might have been the Clint Eastwood movie, “Gran Torino”, a movie we’d seen before, but watched again.
3. When was the last time you got angry about something that you felt silly about later?
There have been so many occasions during the past two months, it’s hard to remember just one. Low carb/sugar-free diet + me = cranky person! I actually learned there’s a name for this crankiness–“Atkins Attitude”. I’m now taking a vitamin/herbal supplement to help alleviate it.
4. Where is your favorite object at this moment?
In the living room, sitting in front of me. The only problem is, I can’t decide if it’s the television or the laptop.
5. Have you ever had a reader leave a vile or inappropriate comment ?
When I last posted, on Wednesday, it was raining. We received 8 inches of rain in just two days! By lunch, on Wednesday, I called Ed in a bit of a panic. The chicken coop was flooded, and our poor chickens were wading around in several inches of water! I spent the morning trying to ditch the water myself, without success. Ed came home right after lunch, and began to plow drainage ditches with the tractor. By sunset, most of the water was gone, but our troubles weren’t over.
Whenever it rains a lot in a short period of time, the water in our well gets cloudy. By Thursday night, the water coming out of the faucets was nasty looking! We’ve been drinking bottled water since then. Our well is finally clearing up, and should be normal within another day or two. I just noticed it’s supposed to rain again on Tuesday evening!
Ed surprised me on Valentine’s Day by taking the day off! He announced to me, “I’m yours for the day!” What a nice gift that turned out to be! (I neglected to mention, before, when Ed came home to rescue me and the flooded chickens, on Wednesday, he came home bearing a vase of three pink roses, too! Love a guy who not only comes to rescue his lady in distress, but brings her flowers, too!) I baked him a heart-shaped German Chocolate cake–his favorite.
We spent part of our Valentine’s Day eating lunch in front of the fireplace at The Cracker Barrel. The day proceeded with visits from all of the grandchildren, plus we made a visit over to our daughter’s house later in the evening. It was a special Valentine’s Day, and I won’t soon forget it.
The weekend began with the birthday celebration of our daughter-in-law, Christina, on Friday evening. We celebrated her day with pizza and an ice cream cake. The rest of the weekend was quiet and uneventful. We just stayed inside, tried to stay warm and comfortable, and watched a lot of television.
I’m glad it’s a new week and there are no special occasions this week. I may have been tempted by the cakes in my presence, and may have been guilty of trying a piece– or two. I may now be paying the price of my guilty pleasure. Increase in sugar in body = increase in yeast in body 😦 Sometimes life can be cruel…
