Hello, once again. I had every intention of blogging at least once this past week, but something happened. I had a meeting on Tuesday evening after work, then on Wednesday was choir practice and then Thursday I had my annual physical before work and then saw my chiropractor after work. By Friday night, I was shot. The best part was the 2.5 hour drive to the doctor’s office Thursday morning. You see, we had a snow “event”. That means that MODot got caught with their plow blades down. They didn’t pretreat the roads, so that when we got a lousy inch of dry snow, it would melt under tires and then refreeze, slick as all get out. I left the house on my trek, knowing full well that it would take a bit to get to the doctor and I might even be a little late. The doctor’s appointment was at 8:30, but at 8:30, I was still sitting in crawling traffic about 3 miles from my house, trying to get there (another 15 miles away). I called and left a message that I was running late and had absolutely no idea when I’d be there. I might have cancelled, but it’s my annual exam, so I just wanted to get it out of the way! So, anyhoo, basically, I just idled all the way out there. It wasn’t even frustrating. Just silly. I saw so many people banging on their steering wheels and even felt a bit sorry for them. I will say, I have never been greeted so enthusiastically by the doctor and her staff.
Knitting? Hasn’t happened due to said week. I am planning on posting this blog and then, sitting and knitting a bit. I feel rather unfulfilled without it.
I do wish I had gotten a picture of Grover just laying on the snow in the back yard. He has loved it. It was 13F yesterday morning and he was rolling and frolicking in the snow before I went to work. So dear. Then, this morning I tried to walk him and the salt on the street burned his pads, so we came straight home and washed his feet with cool water. He went out in the back again and laid and rolled on the snow. Hopefully, tomorrow we can get back at it. I can tell I haven’t walked for two days. I hate it.
So, this week I’m gonna give it another go. It shouldn’t be quite as busy (so far anyway). I might even have a picture or two to show. And, my soundtrack for today? How about some Janis? Here is the one and only fabulous Janis Joplin with “Tell Mama”
Have a great one!!!
