Blasted cold weather. I have not had the courage to look at what our weather is, but feel, tells a lot. I don’t think it is 22 wind chill yet but temps are supposed to be very cold. I think 3 below. I will have to check on that. I am not going to go outside to do it. That wind has howled all night. They are forecasting snow flurries. Joe commented yesterday if I needed anything from the store tell him yesterday. I don’t really need anything.I have a lot of left overs cleaned up. Kathy sent some ham up sliced fairly thin. I need to use that. Thought about home made scalloped potatoes and ham. I don’t have any dried beans or I would fix that. Since the ham is fairly thin I think I will either cut it up or layer it. I start thinking early in the day about what to fix for dinner. Spunky and Joe are still sacked out Spunky is so funny. I am trying a new method of “all gone” with the treats. I hate sounding like I am mad at him to get him to understand the treats are enough for that treat time. One night after giving him his bedtime treats, I had told him all gone and he was still hanging around and I knew he was going to howl again, so I walked him out to his “bed”, my couch. I went back to the bedroom and turned around and there he was, he followed me back. That time it was easy. I asked him if he heard me say “go to bed”. He just turned around and went and got on his bed. I nearly passed out I was so surprised. He gets a fairly firm rub down before he goes. Going to go turn the heat up. It is cold in here.
