Dianah a three day weekend sounds fun, though I have to work Monday

Stars here's hoping you don't lose electricity

Somewhat busier day at work yesterday, had a new case, the first time this happened since I started helping with referrals.  Thankfully I was able to get everything done with time to spare

Stayed home and exercised as J wasn't well enough to go out, although he is feeling better, just being careful about what he eats

Did an experiment and went back to my earlier bed time, and found it took me longer to fall asleep and I woke up earlier.  So it seems a later bedtime is better for me.  My dad was similar, he stayed up well after the rest of the family

Today going to go out bird watching if the roads aren't too slippery,  as we just had some snow.  Going to try using the camera.  Meeting dad for lunch as usual, then going to try making a cherry pie

Svengoolie has Tarantula, which is pretty good for  one of the big bug movies

Going to be in the 20s today, snow should be finished

Good Afternoon!

Didja see the volcano eruption undersea near Tonga? The photo I saw was from 'outer space' and man-oh-man, it was an impressive big'un. Enough to warn that Tonga, Hawaii and the West Coast were under a tsunami warning; saw some photos of sea water coming in on shore, scary, but not quite as bad as some tsunami's have dumped on land.

Hubby and Nannie are having fun doing a do-you-remember about where they lived in South Carolina,and she does actually remember some of the episodes and people. Interesting. My husband won a baby-beauty-contest (age 1 or 1 1/2), when he greeted a judge with, "Hey there!" They apparently were charmed and impressed, because he says he immediately won, hands down! Nannie still has the 'gown' (?) he won.

It is cold and overcast right now, but nuthin' has started. Nannie can't stop from watching the back yard to see if she can see any rain, sleet, or snow, but alas it remains dry. She'll maybe have another 3 hours of being attentive before she can see anything.Then she can get back to fretting for real...even though we don't have to go anywhere....well, except for taking Ozzie out to pee....but no driving or errand running. I guess tomorrow will be 'the' day of bad weather. I'd turn the TV on to see, but that would just set Nannie off again.

Haven't heard from my sister yet, so I don't know how things stand up there in Southern Maine. Last time I was up there (years ago) we had a tremendous snow storm that piled up to 3 & 1/2 feet. That also happened when I lived in Greenfield in Western Mass, but it was 4 feet....when I walked it was clear up to the top of my thighs. We went out at 3 AM and walked all over, it was too flaky for snowballs and but perfect for falling down; it was so much fun! Nowadays it wouldn't be too appealing to be human snowplows, but we laughed and laughed a lot, back then. Gads, it was goofy good times. 

Welp, nothing to do except hurry up and wait....I'll prolly be back later, provided we don't get so iced up that the power-lines and/or tree branches come down.

I'm standing in the front yard with Ozzie on his leash. He finds a "good spot" and hunkers up to poop. And poop. 

Small dog + unusually large long poop = hubby saying, "Good Lord! You better make sure his tonsils aren't caught on the end of that thing!"

Afternoon, all. I was too tired to post yesterday. I went with dd and her eldest son to a museum of flight yesterday https://www.boeingfutureofflight.com. I think grandson is destined to be an engineer. He flew a drone, we did some interactive stuff about bird flight and designing and flying  fighter jets. The factory tour was closed, but we saw several planes, outside, many waiting to get painted. We got a burger for lunch, and then hurried home to go to PT. Then dh and I went out to get Mexican food. I was pretty beat from the long car ride, and then just generally being frustrated with the therapist. She seems to think that I am going to continue working with her for several more sessions. Now she has diagnosed a twisted pelvis to correct. but as it stands, if my leg doesn't feel better after the initial 6 visits, I'm done. And as a matter of fact, it hurts more.  So two more visits, and i'm done. Still no notice from insurance about approving MRI, but I guess everyone is busy. 

The weather is mild, but foggy. I got out for a nice run, but something in my knee started to hurt, so I had to walk the last mile. That's okay. I admired the water fowl (mallards, cormorants, buffleheads, Canada geese) and a heron. After I got home I saw the notice about the tsunami, but I think the waves had already come in by the time I was out by the bay. Plus, we are on the interior of Puget Sound, so likely not affected much. 

I finally got out to clean up some the storm debris from the neighbor's trees. They are spruce and normally shed a lot of needles and twigs, but after the big snows there was a ton. I worry about someone slipping on that stuff. I nearly filled the yard waste tote with stuff from the driveway. I picked another 3 buckets from the deck and dropped those over the fence in the back where there is just brushy stuff anyway. 

Joe, I hope you get some good pics of birds. Speaking of sleep hygiene, I just sort of give up. I go to bed, and if I sleep for more than 3 hours, it feels like a gift. I toss, I turn, I'm hot, I'm cold, bathroom calls, I'm hungry, I hurt. I often get up for an hour around 2am to read. 

Stars, I hope you don't lose power. Have you ever gone to bed after the power goes out and then wake up when all the lights come on again? Got to remember to flip off switches, but its hard when you can't see them! 

Time to for exercises. ta

Good evening.

Worked an OT shift for $700 today.  Still have three days off.  

Nothing much going on.  Lots of people still out with covid.  But hopefully that's going to peak.  

My sister has it and is okay.  Her daughter brought her some food.  She's short of breath but not sick enough to go to the hospital.  Another friend of mine has it.  He's 70 and has commodities and went for some treatment.
