Our predicted temperature for tomorrow is 50 degrees. 4 days ago, it was -20. So that means, our temperature difference will be 70 degrees in five days. Yes, I know. That's just plain weird.
The park's maintenance guys kept scraping our street today, as the sun shone and the snow melted. Unfortunately, with all this action, they filled in the end of my driveway with lots of chunks of un-melted snow. I wasn't planning on going anywhere today, but I decided I needed some fresh air, and get away from this computer.
I went out and started the car and then drove forward and back until I had the end of the drive pretty much flattened. Then I sprinkled some ice melt on it. The ice melt will work even in very cold temps. I just didn't want those chunks of snow to harden and ice up. We are expecting another big snow this weekend.
It felt almost like early spring, out there, in the sun, so I took the opportunity to fill up the bird feeders and the squirrel food box. Within minutes of coming back in, I saw 4 Cardinals, 6 Blue Jays, Chick-A-Dees, Titmouse, Nut Hatch and two squirrels having an afternoon snack.
I also got my bedroom and bathroom and kitchen cleaned up and will mop the kitchen floor tomorrow. I have felt a bit overwhelmed lately and getting these chores done, really calms me down and makes me feel good.
It is always better for me to have chores done before I get involved in the computer/genealogy. I can concentrate much better. I think I finally have a time-schedule in place to give me ample time to climb branches AND keep my house in some semblance of order.
Dar had shoulder surgery this morning and was home by 2:00. I can't even imagine coming home that quickly. If I get cut into, I am going to at least spend the day and night in a hospital.
She's home with a pain pump!! Are you kidding me? That kind of equipment and procedure belongs in a hospital setting, in my opinion--especially at our ages!
I haven't heard from anyone in the family all week, so I can assume that means everyone is all right? No news is good news? Right?
Well, if I don't see or talk to them, then I won't make a mistake and say or do something that is misinterpreted, so I guess, it's a good thing. HAH!
