If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you about our weather.It snow about and inch December 24 after which a dense fog moved into the area. It brought below freezing temperatures with it. This morning it was 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Later in the day when the fog lifts everything is white. The birds loved the trees as the frozen water melts.

If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you about the things that happened when shopping. First I was sitting in my walker when gentlemen notice. I explain that I was waiting for someone to get an item. He insisted that we take his place in line. I did thank him. Next we went to a drive-in to get a drink. At our turn to pay we were told the car ahead of us paid for our drinks. The spirit of giving is still around.

If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you that we had very Christmas. First the hall was great with a lot food much I could eat. The next day my brother, wife, daughter and her fiancee can over. We wentvout for dinner at a local restaurant and had a very good meal. My husband received a light coat and a beautiful shawl. I did have bad fall while my relatives were here. Luckily I landed on the couch. My ankle gave out. It sure scare them.


If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you that last Kato had adventure and he was unhappy about it. He hadn’t been outside for a few days and was into everything and I couldn’t get anything done. I decided to take him out. We had to use the elevator which he is frightened of it. I started out withhim on the walker. He wanted off so he could investigate his surroundings. At the elevator he started ylling which brought out the 3rd residents. Next we hit the second floor and more people joined. He was screaming all the way at the first and more people were there. On the way back the ylling started again. It was had on my back.

    Your picture of the snow and the fog frost on the trees is lovely. We had clear weather yesterday for Christmas. Today it’s raining, but it’s a cozy sort of a day here in our house. I’m sorry you had a fall–but it certainly is lucky you landed on the sofa. Kato your kitty is quite a character!

    • Thanks for the comments. Kato has given us lot of joy over the years. He has a routine down pat. It is sunny but 13 degrees Fahrenheit and gust 16 miles an hour.Wind chill factor of 4 degrees Fahrenheit. Too cold for Kato.

    It’s always nice when someone takes extra time to do something kind—glad to hear about your experiences this week. 🙂

    Sorry to hear you took a spill- hope you are ok now. So nice that those people paid- it is refreshing to know people are still so giving!

    • Yes, it was nice our drinks were paid. How often does someone give up his place in a line to make it easy for someone. My ankle can give out any time. It been lucky I have been able to catch myself. I don’t need broken bones.

    Poor Kato – certainly doesn’t believe in suffering in silence. Wishing you a safe and healthy New Year!

    • When he is angry or scared you can hear him a block away. The residents either wanted to pet him or were afraid of him. It was the event of the week. Bob has taken down the stairs since. He wanted to go visit his places this morning. It is 13 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill factor of 4. He went futher than either of thought before he decded it was too cold.

  8. what a beautiful cat! Hope you are feeling a little better – blessings

    Enjoyed seeing the cover of snow. It’s been so hot here, although it’s cooled down a bit. Like the others, I’m impressed with the number of books you get through. Even though your health isn’t great, others in your shoes are watching TV etc so well done.
    Wishing you a Happy New Year!
