Sunshine on snow — at least briefly, from my window yesterday, 1-13-18. Usually when the weather people predict this stuff it never happens around here. It hits every other place around us, but the river usually protects us and diverts the white stuff to the Indiana side. I have wondered why we are getting it this year and might have come up with the answer. At least it’s an answer I like, so I’m going with it. Mama Ree loves snow and we just never get enough for her, so this year, with Sam now in heaven (and I truly believe he is there), he is making sure she gets enough to keep her happy for a while. And with that sense of humor of his, I don’t dare go outside for a while because he would probably slap me in the face with a snowball! I’m not too crazy about the stuff and yes, I know what we got is nothing compared to other parts of the country we have to contend with the fact that it is out there lying on the ice that came first. So far the temps have been well below freezing so it isn’t leaving the parking lot here and the less traveled streets. The building management has a firm policy against cleaning it off the sidewalks and parking area here, at one time stating that if they leave it and we are stupid enough to go out on it anyway we deserve whatever happens. (Paraphrased comment) As is usual in this town someone will have to be seriously maimed or killed before the policy is changed. I love this place in spite of the less than ideal management and the downright stupid rules they seem to think we accept without question as the truth.
I shouldn’t say the above out loud but it becomes an exercise in silly at times and it all has to come out. All in all however, it is the first place I’ve felt at home since leaving the farm and I have yet to figure out why!
I’ve been updating my kitchen for a while now, one item at a time, and this dishwasher magnet is one of the latest finds. It sure goes with the overall rooster theme that began in the kitchen and has now spread all over the apartment. So, while I’m trying to get myself together enough to prepare for the funeral in the morning, I’m gonna stick a few of the latest photos here. You might get one of the scene outside our freight door also if I remember to add it. Part of the entrance is clear (went down to get the photos this morning, opened the door and didn’t freeze!) Enjoy the photos while I’m working on getting my clothes together for morning. Then I’ll have to take the laundry off the shower chair and the shower rod tonight so I won’t have to do that in the morning while I’m still walking around in my sleep. And praying the snow that is supposed to begin at nine a.m. doesn’t happen. My chariot won[t get far in that mess.
New rugs in kitchen, nicely padded to help reduce fatigue.
