This is the cats favorite place in the whole house.
I put a rug on it otherwise she rolls around on it
and gets hair all over it.
I set up a hook system so I can lift my curtains so they are not in the way.
I love the treadmill and believe it was the best money I have spent.
Great to have this winter that is for sure.
I went outside yesterday
my usual happy self.
a long sleeve shirt, a vest, my jacket,
huge scarf tied around my neck and head,
mitts, heavy ski pants, big polar boots.
I open my door , I take one step out,
the outside door is ripped from my hands by a gust of wind
and once again I thought to myself.....
You have got to be kidding me
if anyone up there can hear me
please let it stop snowing!
Hello can anybody hear me?
So I get started bending knees,
minus 30, shoveling, ice crystals forming on my face from my breath.
I would do as much as I could, then stop, lean on the fence,
catch my breath, do some more, into the house to warm up.
Four separate times I made it outside,
not one soul did I see anywhere.
Did I get the snow done.
Not even near, but I had a good workout,
got lots of fresh air.
I open my back door to let my dog out,
no steps to be seen, the wind had blown enough snow
that it was up above the bottom of the door
and I had to push to get the dog out.
It was a bit drafty, the cold air came rushing up my nightgown,
shiver to the top of my head.
This is the most snow we have had since 1976.
I was a kid then, building igloos, making tunnels in the snow banks,
Now I want to be a warm kid,
sipping my coffee, in a big warm housecoat,
slippers and a blanket.
Until this snow slows down my treadmill is going to have to wait,
and I can feel like I have spent all this money for my cat to sit on it.
At least I am not using it to hang clothes on.
I have noticed my tops are all getting big on me.
Will have to measure soon.
March 1st...one day closer to Spring,
it's cold and I don't want salads,
I mean I love salads.
I think it is a soup day.
