Worst Mother Ever….

…says Kasia. The morning rain turned icy and now we have snow. Momma told Kasia it’s too slippery for now. It’s incredible how a pup and a child can share a universal pout.

**The sound you hear is maternal guilt piling on.**

There is always tomorrow, šŸ¤žšŸ» I hope!

And some more….

IMG_5262Here is Kasia not looking very happy with me, but Jim and I had a date night last night.

The only chance of seeing a first run movie down these parts was a drive away,, so we went off to dinner and then saw The Darkest Hour. It was Gary Oldman staring as Winston Churchill and Kristin-Scott Thomas, of Four Weddings and a Funeral and, later, The Other Boleyn Girl as Clementine Churchill. We both enjoyed the movie, but, unfortunately in the age of #METOO it might get rolled over for Oscar Time. That would be a shame.

Back at the home today, disgust is on Kasia’s face, because it is now a fact that Mom picked up bronchitis on the tail end of here current list of ailments….My girl hates being the health Continue reading And some more….

So, You Want to live at the Shore?

Sure, it’s easy off season and the blizzards hit. Let’s start off with the two weeks of trash and recyclables due to get finally picked up tomorrow.

Ah, but then comes the fun part…

Thank God, it is not for us but our neighbor, who had a broken pipe running from his heater through his house. Jim walked Kasia last night and heard water running. First he though it was ours. As he got by our neighbors, he heard a lot of water. He brought Kasia back in, called our neighbor from his cell, and as a result, the south Jersey version of Servicepro to clear things out post flood are here.

The neighbor showed up this morning, and the cleaning company has a fleet of trucks out to clear things up. I’ll bet that he wished he had a property management service to look at his property and monitor it through the winter.

As for us, we are ok…I am retiring to the land of the living.Walked Kasia this morning and will go out a little later too. Ginger ale and crackers are the only two I can trust right now, so maybe I am working my way back up the food chain.I miss Momma walks with Kas.

Post -Holiday Life

We sent my nephew Greg back to the city this morning, as he is due back to work in the morning.

Jim is watching football on the television.

Kasia is sleeping at my feet.

and life is returning to normal???

This is a shot of the frozen Delaware Bay. I really am not encouraged to go to work, if offered this week, if the cold is still like this. Hopefully, the temperatures will edge up a little by little. I actually think we are due to have some rain coming later this week.

Otherwise, I think I’ll keep my fur girl company and curl up until it warms up.

Nurse Rachet, Line One….

So we figured we pulled out the Greg visit and got up here sage and sound, right?

Until this morning, when Jim started the day with a fever that is climbing: I managed to get some aspirin into him and get him to force some fluids, but what else is new? As Jim would say, whenever we plan something, well, how does that old chestnut go? ” Man plans, and God laughs.”

We were going up to an 80th birthday party in Pennsylvania tomorrow, which, of course now is out of the question. I called Jim’s sister up to share the lousy news with her. We were really looking forward to it.

I am glad Greg is here to keep me company, as Jim has been sleeping most of the day. I made a pot of chicken corn soup, with a tip of the hat to my buddy Juls for the recipe, as it was tasty and kept up warm. Now it’s waiting to get warmed up for when Jim has an appetite again.

We both got flu shots this year, so we are trying to figure out where this came from.

Hold a good thought for us, ok? This is getting to be a hell pf a weekend.
