Keep it Coming…

It would appear that they are looking for yet another Nor’easter coming my way.

If memory serves you correctly, yes you did see the above picture in a prior post, dealing with the current Nor’easter.We aren’t proud, either: we’d take snow.

I think it was last winter when my Zush was still with us that was when we had some snow. It’s a case of anything to keep the off-season, the off season.***chuckling***

Hope springs eternal!

Welcome November Weather

The sun is out. I know :understatement of the day.

What the photo fails to convey is that the wind is blustery at 25 to 40 miles per hour. If you didn’t get the memo and you lived here by me at Undisclosed Location, let me confirm for you what you felt when you went out this morning and felt.

“Damn, it’s cold out.”

My buddy Juls who lives on the side of a mountain in another state. Our average difference is usually 15 degrees colder there than here.The clincher here, though,is the bay.

Nice picture, right? The 32 degree temperature puts a little different spin on that picture.

Welcome, November weather!

Long Day

Gentle reader, please keep my Zush in your thoughts and prayers.

She is hanging in there, but I can see the changes starting to come up, which just make me sad, and I’m sure it makes Jim equally as sad.She is just as good as she normally is, but a few little things are making me pray extra hard for her. It’s funny, because I just keep getting up one day at a time, putting two feet on the floor while she puts her four paws down, as does her sister.I think they read off of their “pack” and Zush knows we love each other every day. She tires out, although I try not to walk her too much, but some days I think maybe it’s just the winter weather making her hurt as I do.

Her cataracts in her eyes are starting to come into play: they aren’t totally blocking her vision but you can tell she isn’t seeing as she used to. Then again, neither am I.

Missing our Outings

The girls and I are going through withdrawal.

Zush looks over to me and waits for me to say the magic words that aren’t coming. I think she hears it in my voice and figures, well, Mom is resting so I guess I should too. That’s alright.

Kasia is just as content to be in the yard, bark at everyone and every animal passing by and making her own version of snow angels.

Fortunately we are due for a warm up and even rain later this week, so the three of us will be chomping at the bit until we can get back out.

Slip Sliding Away

What a day.

I woke up this morning at 7am after falling asleep at 4 am, Don’t ask.

There was some snow on the ground and I dressed warm, got the girls out, and we then went out to downtown Cape May,to pick up my “fixed” engagement ring.

Unfortunately,my feet had different ideas.

I fell down.

I went down with my classic lack of grace, but for a different twist on things, my foot bent backwards, as did the rest of my leg. A few guys helped me get up, a classic sign of old age, and once I got on my feet, I was sore, but was able to walk on it.I have my cane out, to make sure my left side sturdies up.The rough part is keeping it iced in this weather.

This is a shot of how deep it was this morning around 8am.

Allegedly we are around 6″-8″, and it is so cold tonight.

Stay warm, folks!

Helena

Carrying on with the last couple of posts about the weather, I had the weather channel on today.

Allegedly, the current “named” weather storm is called Helena. I laughed and thought of my Dad. He’s seen below with my Mom. I believe he’s in heaven laughing at this one.

Let me tell you why.

My Dad and I used to dance all the time at church socials. As I am of Polish decent, well, we did a lot of waltzes and polkas. I used to know ALL the names of the polkas, and I’ll never forget some of our favorites.

Daddy’s favorite polka?

You’ve got it: the “Helena” polka.

Sleep warm, Daddy.

Dreary is as Dreary Does

The girls and I managed to get out for a couple of times walking before the rain came.

We had been doing pretty well until the rain came. We managed to get out a few times and visit some friends, but then, we came in about 2:30pm and within a half hour, the heavens opened up. We are going to try to get out before it gets too dark, because I think the girls look forward to it as much as I do.

So we may tip-toe through the raindrops, but we will go out for one last trip around our neighborhood tonight.After that, I think it’s safe to say we are all kind of sleepy, so we won’t be worth too much.At least us gals can snuggle together! What a treat!
