Friday, Snowing

     We have had snow here for almost a week that has actually stuck because of a cold snap.. It is snowing again and this makes our streets very dangerous as they are steep and no one here knows how to drive in snow and ice.  We don't have the equipment to handle the snow and ice so we will hunker down until it passes.

     Unfortunately we have a  graduation to go to on the Palouse tomorrow we will take the 4 wheel drive, but I am staying put today.

     I was disappointed in my pig bank this year.  I only saved $250.38 in change.  I knew it would be a slow year as I did not go out of town every other weekend.  It is traveling that brings in the change.  I just don't spend much cash at home.  I write checks.  It is okay still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

Sluggies husband took a bad spill in their driveway and is laid up for a while.  Send her a comforting text as she will need it.  Men are not fun to be around when they are in pain and recuperating.  I feel so bad for him and HER.  Such a rotten time to get hurt.  Well is any time a good time? I think she needs gifties, so get on the ball and let's make her holiday bright.  Make a treat and get your butt's down to the post office and send her a surprise so she can have a little respite from the holiday trauma.

     I was able to get everything done on my list yesterday except for mother's rosettes and the cleaning.  I try to start in a room and mom comes in and fusses about her open house.  "This can wait no one is coming here."  Great mom so we can live in squalor?   Yes I guess we can.

Well the laundry is waiting to be turned over and mom is upstairs banging in the kitchen.  My hair is out of control and I need to start the chicken salad and make a cheese ball.

Have a great and productive day!




  1. Hang tight today and enjoy being snowed in? We don't have removal equipment and I live in a very hilly area of town. If we have snow this year I will have to go get mom while the roads are still drivable and have her stay with us. Fingers crossed that this is a no snow year here..

    Great idea about showing some Sluggy love!

    1. Okay prayers for no snow. Wasn't it the Alaskan natives that put their old people out in the snow when they became useless? Hmmmm........:) Wicked thought

  2. Kim, Can you email me at I have a question for you but can't figure out how to find your email. Thanks so much!

  3. Guess that is one advantage of living in Canada - the plows get out early and often along with the sanders and salt spreaders. We had about 6" Friday and now (Sunday) we are having a whole bunch more. Do you have Sluggy's address? You can email me at
