How cold is it? Darn cold. Freeze your butt off cold, makes your boobs ache and your legs hurt. I still went out with the dog for about ten minutes so he could play ball and poop. He is used to going for a ride in the afternoon and playing ball outside after supper. Playing ball in the kitchen works but it just isn’t the same. Border Collies establish habits and they don’t like anything messing up their “job” schedule.
Far Guy is busy all day on the phone with various government agencies trying to get his Medicare Mess straightened out. No headway yet. Picture him beating his head against a brick wall. Painful to watch. There are a whole lot of people out there not doing their jobs at the Social Security Office and at Medicare…of course Medicare just passes the buck to Social Security where the average wait is 45 minutes or more or you can leave your number for them to call back…but everyday a number has been left no call has been returned…I told Far Guy he must be on their do not call list. So he waits and waits on the phone patiently and sometimes not so patiently…yesterday until the office finally closed.
I cleaned some more cupboards in the kitchen, I can clean cupboards and throw the ball for the dog at the same time, except when I am on the step ladder.
I am ahead on laundry…a load or more a day gets washed in hope that more water will make the septic system less likely to freeze up.
I have not been out of the yard since Monday. When it is so cold I just want to stay at home. Actually I just want to sleep until the weather warms up!
Topaz Pink and Bombay Dark Blue Scaevola Summer of 2014
Perfect plant for a hot spot in your yard, a few pinches here and there and it becomes a moundy trailing plant that will bloom all summer, summer seems like a long way off…only four months to go.
