Bitter Cold and SNOW, 1 Feb 08
Jim woke me and called me into the snug. Out the window it was pretty white with snow. The sun was shining and it was melting quickly so Jim rushed out and took some photos. As it happened it snowed on and off all day, but not really enough for it to settle for any length of time. I had a bath and Jim went down the road to feed the neighbours' cats while they are in the UK. We both brought in a good amount of wood for Stanley.
I managed to do a bit of gardening between showers but my fingers froze! We both walked up to the top of the meadow and Sandy followed, stopping every few moments to wash the wet from his paws!! Missy, Sandy's half sister, from down the road appeared and they played together a bit. Eventually Sandy looked so cold and wet we decided to take him in! I rubbed him with a towel, which he was not impressed with, then left him to lick himself clean! It was lovely to have gone out in the snow.
The news from Kirsty was reasonably good. The ultra sound didn't reveal anything so it's back home, no operation. Wait and see and come back if it reoccurs.
The same day, Tony, Kirsty's brother, turned his car upside down in very wet conditions and was taken to hospital. Amazingly, both he and his girlfriend walked away virtually unharmed. He has learnt his lesson I hope. I went on msn to say how pleased I was that he's ok, but to drive more slowly if the conditions demand it. He said he would! I think they realise how lucky they were.
An evening spent winding up wool from a large hank I bought from ebay, then playing Scrabulous on Facebook. Now it's time for bed, said Zebedee.
