It was –29 F or –33 C at 9 PM last night. Just thought I would share.
And that is the thermometer that runs on the warm side. It sits on the window ledge in the kitchen and receives a transmission from a device in a tree outside. Brrrr…
We had the downstairs Christmas tree de decorated in no time flat. Why is it that it takes more time going up than down? The room seems larger now.
The Shiny Brite tree is still upstairs, I am not ready to take that one down yet. I enjoy it too much!
We started organizing military “stuff” for the scrapbook. Some of the old stuff was rescued from one of those terribly sticky old photo albums. Whoever invented them should have been shot. With patience and a gentle hand and sometimes the hair dryer most everything was saved. Everything is now on my desk….so we have to work on it!
We decided to sign Chance up for a Intro to Fly ball Class…just to see how he might do. It would be a great winter activity for him and us too. He is a little bored in the cold weather…a few squirrels kept him busy for a short time yesterday.
We have one black squirrel, he lives south of here across the road…and comes for a snack ( bird seed on the ground). Since I greased the bird feeder poles with Crisco they stay out of the feeders. I might have to re-grease them on a warmer day but for now they are just fine. Yes I have laughed evilly as the buggers slide down the poles!
We had a blast last night watching Destination America and a search for Log Homes, they featured a home near Park Rapids and another up on Boot Lake…it is fun to see some of the places back in the boonies. The lady looking at the log home on Boot Lake said “Well this is practically nowhere.” Yup we live near practically nowhere.
