Done For Now

Good afternoon again.  You know it is amazing what a $50. snow shovel and an 83 year old’s determination can accomplish.  Example;

This is the Fairmount St. side of the lot.

I have shoveled the front and this side all the way to the driveway.  Now it took a while but by golly I did.

This is where me and the shovel rested by my driveway.

Seeing I already had cold hands and feet I thought I add a little more time to the job.

I filled the bird feeder and the suet holder.

Maybe the birds will come to visit.

I have to take time now to heat up some tomato soup and make a grilled cheese sandwich to keep my bowl of oatmeal (that was breakfast) and my 3 cups of coffee company. Haven’t figured out what is for supper yet but I always have T V dinners in the freezer.

I have been fighting (verbally) with Brandy since a little 10:30 am to eat but of the two things I have to feed to eat her one is a stew which she doesn’t care for and a canned dog food which she likes but has a tendency to throw up.  Her regular food has been out of stock for a couple of weeks now.  It seems everything she needs is on backorder or discontinued.  Just another thing to jangle my nerves.

Well my tummy says get a move on girl so I’ll leave you for now.  Have a great weekend and don’t forget to change your clocks tonight.

  1. Just a thought: you could try cooked rice & mix it with some of the canned food? Or just cooked rice & cooked hamburger – I remember that was a ‘sick dog’ diet from many years ago (not saying she’s sick, but if she isn’t eating???)

  2. Thank you for the suggestion I’ll keep it in mind. I was lucky enough to find her regular dog food today and she gobbled it down.
