I copied this picture off of Facebook at Christmas time .
I tried to make them. Why aren't mine cute like the picture?
Maybe they need necks. The ones in the picture are so cute. I will keep trying. I think maybe just two and one heart might be cuter.
It's sooo cold outside. We had frozen pipes again today and no water. The repairman (God Bless that man) showed up at the door. He said he had been trying to call me and it just rang busy. Thank goodness he just came out . Our phone was dead, another problem we have been having. He worked for over an hour. You see, our hot water heater and pump (we have a well) are outside in a concrete hole in the ground. It's not heated of course. The ideal situation is to leave water running but then that could make us run out of water. here is no outlet in the pit. The repairman found two holes that could be letting the cold air in and he pugged them. It is concerning because it is around 0 degrees right now. Next week it could get double digits below zero. Winds and snow are predicted as well. Not sure our homes here are ready for these temps. Our house is 46 years old.
Oops, I got off track. So after shopping we went to the restaurant next door. This whole time, we saw hardly anyone out. When we were done I had to go watch my grandson and granddaughter. They didn't have school and their mama needed to leave for work. My grandson was shoveling the driveway (hill) for me. When my son got home I tried to leave. Well, we tried for about an hour. We could not get my bug up their hill. So I spent the night. The groceries froze but all but the fruit survived. The next morning Mabel (5) and I headed up the hill. My son had salted and shoveled and it worked. The whole way to my house Mabel sang songs. After I picked both of them up from school later I went down that drive again. This time I was able to get out and come home. I didn't get to sleep much that night. In the guest room the heat sounded like tennis shoes in a dryer. So loud. They have hot water heat.....you know the kind with the radiators. Although no radiators but baseboards. They have had it serviced many times since they moved this fall. It's hard to find someone to fix that kind of heat.
Well, I keep hearing car doors. There must be something going on at the Clubhouse across the street from us. Those people must be crazy to be out tonight.
Well, all I can say is STAY COZY.
Updates......Deb is still in the hospital but doing okay. She was able to talk to my husband on the phone this week,
My friend Brenda has started radiation and doing okay as well. Her leg looks better she said.
