Frosty - 30 days old!

Frosty has been here for 30 days!  He is starting to settle from all his weight, and his back bend is pretty good.  I think he may be trying to go for the "Limbo".  We'll have to see how far he can go before he falls!  This only problem with that - he won't be getting up again! 

Today it is snowing again, and it started yesterday evening with rain and sleet, changing to snow early this morning.  Must have over 3 inches now and it's still coming down!  

 Snowball the horse is not doing well.  His head has fallen apart, so he can't think straight anymore;  has lost his halter and saddle blanket!  His tail is still good, but big butts are hard to get rid of!  Just like me - Big butt!  Ha!  More exercise called for and as for being accountable; more exercise has been started on my part.  Don't think Snowball will be keeping up with me! 

Last night we went to visit our granddaughter Amanda.  She had her 4 wisdom teeth surgercially removed on Thursday.  She looked pretty good last night.  No black and blue coloring, just "gopher" cheeks.  She used a cold compress on her cheeks several times while we were there, and we played a game of "Apples to Apples" with her and grandson Blake.  Lineman Blake got called back to work, so he went to bed very early and left early this morning - driving on terrible roads to their last job site, and then to take equipment to the Huron SD area where there are over 1700 poles down.  They'll be there a few days getting that system all back in working order.  With that many poles down, I'm sure there will be other power company crews called in to help.  Our daughter that works for Xcel Energy in Sioux Falls SD said they have some trouble in their area, but will be sending linemen to the Huron job site too.  Praying for all those linemen to work safe in harsh conditions.

The snow today is sticky because the temperature is above freezing.  We could build another Frosty, but I'm not in the mood to do that all by myself.  Christmas day was much more fun when all the kids were home and we built our snow buddies together!

So many people are having a really rough time with bad weather right now. Guess it is something we can't control though. Thank goodness there are men like your grandson that are dedicated to working in such harsh conditions. Spring can't come soon enough for me. I am really tired of snow and gloomy skies. Hope the rest of your weekend is a nice one. Stay safe and warm.

Happy 30 days Frosty! Being flexible is wonderful but I hope it doesn't have anything to do with the beer can eyes! The snow is beautiful -
