It's COLD!

I have  tried oh so hard not to complain about the weather here. I know at home you are dealing with the after effects of a blizzard, I have seen the videos, the pictures, heard the horror stories. And I am so so sorry for you. But I just have to do it today, I have to whine, IT IS #$%@& COLD here. Last night it got so cold, the outside pipes froze and even though my flowers were in the shed I think they are all gone, frozen, kaput.  I want to be outside, sitting in the sun knitting or reading or talking to my friends, not making quick runs out with Izzie and then right back in the RV. Today is supposed to be the last day, I so hope so. This is not what I signed up for.  Ok, I got it out of my system, no more whining, at least not that you can hear. I will probably still be muttering under my breath until I get back outside.

On to other things, I found a really good physical therapist and had my first appointment Wednesday and am going again today. I don't remember if a mentioned my back, hip has flared up again. I am hoping to stop it before it gets to bad with some physical therapy. I guess it has been a while since I have been to PT cause they have this cool new ultrasound with electric impulse combined. I really works well. He also gave me some new stretching exercises which will hopefully help. I know I have to find a polio doctor out here, but oh how I hate to start the process, it is such a long one.

I just had a thought , if I stop whining about the weather and start knitting, I could make some progress on the two containers of yarn I have sitting in the closet. Just a thought.

Keep warm everyone. Sorry no pictures today, to cold to go outside.

  1. I personally think you have every right to complain(heck everyone else is so why not...lol)because you choose to live there during the winter months in order avoid that cold...my parents live in Texas during the winter and they are experiencing the same thing and she feels badly complaining because she knows the lows there are even higher then our highs...regardless, they go there to get away from this here...lol...she told me that before the cold came she had been getting a little homesick and that the cold chased it away...lol...I think for us here in Minnesota, we are so used to cold and snow it's really not a big deal but believe me we get damn sick of it...I don't allow myself to dwell in it because it would cause me to be depressed for the remaining 2 months that we have left of this....stay warm and I pray you are outside sitting in the sun soon! Sorry about your flowers! :)

  2. That's what you get for posting all those beautiful pictures of warm, sunny scenery! Do you remember the blizzard of '67? Weren't those wonderful days?
