Slept late this morning which usually gives me a headache. Coffee cured it (the headache, not the sleeping late).

The week's over--a busy week (relatively speaking for me) of going to town to grocery (Aldi) and Walmart shop (yes, ugh). But Walmart has salt free pretzels, printer ink, loose leaf tea, duct tape, etc., items I can't find anywhere else close by. Library visit, too.

My eldest daughter had me over tacos--first time since they returned from living in Honduras I was invited for supper (6 months). Honduran tacos are different than Mexican or American.

I also babysat my youngest grandson (age 3) a couple of times--all day. Whew!

One more week in Indiana. Then I'm off to Florida for two weeks. I need the getaway.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

We have finally gotten some real winter temps for the next few days. Hopefully when it warms up again we don't get enough snow to interfere with going to Prince George for my hip replacement.

Just realized today is Groundhog Day, previously known as Candlemas Day--"Half the wood, half the hay".

It's sunny here in Indiana, so you know what that means(?). Actually, absolutely nothing! True or not, I'll be spending 2 weeks in Florida (beginning two weeks from today). So I think I can survive 6 more weeks of winter.

Stay warm, you all.

You need a blower under those circumstances, methinks. You could borrow ours, since its sitting idle with the neighbours doing the blowing here.....hahahaha......

More snow, more cold, more wind. I hate winter.

I have a 200 foot (feet?) long driveway, and it gets drifted. It's a chore to shovel my way out. Since this happens only once or twice a winter, I've never thought it was worth getting a snow blower or big tractor. Besides, a neighbor (a fourth of a mile away) has come down before to "plow" me out. But, he moved away two years ago! Nobody has volunteered to take his place.

Oh well, I'm not going anywhere. I'll just wait til spring. More coffee, thank you very much.

Even better when the neighbours do all the shoveling.

My morning coffee was 8 hours ago, I'm making afternoon herb tea while taking care of the laundry. I have to use the dryer today, we still have lots of rain.

This morning's coffee was especially welcome as I looked out to see a sea of white--8" of snow in every direction. But with hot oat meal with blueberries, I became more enthused about our first snow of the winter. I may not feel like that after I start shoveling. Good exercise, right?

Enjoy your day.

Thanks, Tom. I'm still skeptical I'll like it. I assume you don't add any cream or sugar to it?

Feeling a scratchy throat,? I had hot tea this morning. It went well with my New Year's Day blueberry pancakes and grapefruit.

There’s hope for you, Randall. Decades after I first tried and hated iced coffee, I tried it again and liked it.

To make cold brew, I measure ground coffee into a strainer in the brew pot, fill the pot with water and put in fridge. After 24 hours, pour into quart lidded jars and enjoy daily for a week.

I’m experimenting—more or less than 12 tbsp with 44 oz and more time in fridge.
