The other day..when things were still normal…we stopped by Leech Lake to walk Chance. It was still about zero degrees F so it was good ice making weather.
The ice might have been singing a happy cold chorus..or perhaps it was the water singing its death throes as it was turned into ice. The sound was almost continual..it came in waves of groans and moans almost as if the lake was serenading someone. Perhaps it was the waves under the ice trying to break free.. there were huge ice ridges out on the lake.
There is not much snow. Just enough to cover the ground in some spots. The winter shadows are long..and it gets dark at 4 PM…sunset is officially 4:30 PM..but if there are any clouds in the sky it is dark at 4.
Far Guy is doing just fine, he is listening to me and is resting and taking his medications. He has no chest pain..I guess I ask him about it too often because he said “Are you going to ask me that question from now on?” Maybe..I have not decided yet.
My Mom has a wonderful roommate who is 104. Mom is still in pain.. and she is very tired. There are plans in the works for a handicap ramp to be built..possibly she will go home next week. We will see how she progresses. My brother from Oregon arrived safely.
Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers
