Colder Than Alaska

Brrr!!! It is really cold outside today.  I am staying in forever sure. It rained yesterday thawing out the snow, and I fear that has turned to ice.  I am beginning to feel as if the weather is making me a prisoner, but it is better to be safe than sorry. I did take advantage of the warm weather yesterday to do my food shopping. No telling what the rest of the week will bring so I figured it best to get it over with. 

On New Years day I made a pernil and froze what we didn't eat. Yesterday I used it to make a delicious pork stew for dinner tonight. Perfect for a cold evening. ..and delicious as well. 

Yesterday I spent the afternoon putting the Christmas decorations away.  It seems like the Christmas that never was.  It just went far too fast for me. When I was a little girl, Christmas took forever to arrive and lasted for a whole week when it arrived.

Before closing I would like to say that I am sorry that I have not been able to comment on your blogs as much as I would like to, but it is really difficult with this gadget. It is so slow and seems, at times, to do what it wants to do. It is just not what they advertise on television. The commercials make it appear to be just like a computer, but it is just not that way. Oh, it is good for certain things--Facebook, email, all games other than Bingo--but it seems that anything that has to do with the Internet moves slow, crashes, or freezes. Maybe I just got a dud, who knows.  At any rate, know that I am reading and commenting whenever I can.  

Love and miss you all. Stay safe and warm.


  1. The only thing worse than cold and snow is ice. So treacherous! You are wise to stay home.

  2. Happy New Year !! Please stay warm !!

  3. ...and you're right. MA is colder than AK too.
    It was 10 here this a.m. and in the 30's where my best friend lives. (Houston,AK)

  4. Stay where it's warm Mary! We are buried in snow and it's so cold!!! A real Winter for sure. You must be so glad you don't have to get to work every day!

    What kind of a tablet do you have?
