January Almost Gone

Good morning and indeed it is!  When Brandy woke me up to go outside at 2:20 am I sat at the table afterwards doing a fill it in and the idea hit me.  When I get up in the morning I will shovel the snow.  So at 8 am up I got, fed the cats and reached for this.

This was a very wise purchase and it gets a lot of use.

I keep water in it all day long because it only takes a minute to pop in a container of Folgers and it is coffee as I like it.  I filled my outdoor cup with coffee, added Sweet Cream, and Equal then outside I went.

So far I have cleared the sidewalk though the side gate.

Then started a little of the sidewalk towards the front of the lot.

I also did this.

In preparation of moving the garbage cart out to the road later today.

I put up the shovel for now because Cindy had to take David to an appointment and she doesn’t like me doing these types of things when there is no one home to check on me.  As soon as she comes home I’ll pick up my shovel again.

After she left I made a bowl of Apple/cinnamon  oatmeal, did one fill it in puzzle, and decided to get my post out of the way for today.

Cindy brought my red jacket home last night with the new metal zipper in it ( just in time for this morning).  It is very warm and the air doesn’t get in it.

Before I went out this morning I started my laundry and it is in the dryer now waiting to be taken out and put away. I can also feed my birds while I’m waiting for Cindy to come home.

As is the custom Libby is in the cage when Cindy and David go away.  She barks for a while but I will get her out now to go outside and then get a drink of water before I make her stay by me until the folks get home.

It is time to wish my daughter-in-law a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY today.  I wanted to sing the (you live in a zoo song to her) but she is working!  Anyway Anne have many, many more!
