Alrighty then

My email works, at least for now.  It's been sorta on-again-off-again this evening.

Weather guessers are predicting a terrible ice storm.  It might happen, but then again, this is Missouri, and it's never easy to pin down our weather forecasts.  Even as I type this, I hear a lady on the news saying, "It may not be as bad as we thought."

I did a little too much walking yesterday.  I was going stir-crazy, so I took Sadie out with me for a twenty-minute walk in the snow.  Not to mention that I did a little more on-my-feet stuff around the house.  So this morning, there was some swelling in my knee.  Except for a couple hours of shopping today and a soup-salad-breadsticks meal at Olive Garden (oh yeah), I've been taking it easier, and I can tell the swelling has gone down.

I'm planning a family dinner for this Sunday.  The house may be a total disaster, and there may be a hog-butchering going on in the shop.  But by george, we're going to have a good day of it!

You are so lucky to live where you do! I would love to take that walk with you. I've missed your pictures of Sadie and your walks.

I'm so jealous of you....those pictures are beautiful.  I want snow!!!!!  We never get snow here.....or if we do it's just a dusting.  I love the geese.  I wish I lived where you do.  Take care & keep warm.

Oh my.  You can have the hog butchering.  The last time (at least I pray it's the last time) we had one the carcus somehow ended up on my kitchen table.  Oh, I enjoy the fresh meat but I'd just as soon let others go through the hassle.  PLEASE DON'T OVER DO IT SUNDAY!

I'm glad you were able to get out for a few minutes, but don't overdo it.  I love the pictures.

I have been reading about the terrible ice storm with so many people out of power. I hope you all will be ok. Looks odd to see all that snow when it's suposed to get up to 80º here today. If we feel up to up after a while we may even go fish for a while. Great pictures. I hope that knee does ok. Helen
