Bitter Cold

November 12th, 2019 at 12:48 pm

It's really cold here this morning. The "feels like" temperature is below zero. I do not plan to go anywhere. And I don't think I will try to move my car until it gets warm enough to melt the snow and ice that's all over it. That's the beauty of being retired and I'm going to take advantage of it.

My BFF sent me home with some leftover chicken and broccoli from our weekend together. Yesterday I chopped it up and added it to frozen risotto with squash. It made a pretty good skillet dinner, though a little dry. Today I'm going to sauce it up, and part of it I will use for hot pockets, which I make with crescent rolls.

I am running low on a few things but nothing that will drive me out into the cold.

I am watching my bank account but so far there has been no deposit from insurance. I should get a little over $800 for taxes and fees, and there shouldn't be anything holding it up, now that my title has been found and submitted. If it doesn't appear today, I'll call again.

My granddaughter's birthday is tomorrow. That really crept up on me. I'm going to order a gift from Amazon today. My grandson's birthday is the next day (different families, though). I'm going to give him cash, just waiting for info on when we will have a party for him.

    You are right that that's a benefit of retirement! I think I would look forward to snow days. Stay warm!

    That polar plunge has dipped very far south were we are too! It's quite a change from what we are now used to. Enjoy your day!

    Agreed...a great benefit of retirement unless you have to get out. DH's cataract surgery was this morning so we braved the cold and icy streets. What in the heck happened to fall in the Midwest?

    Aw I hope the winter isn’t too brutal this year, for you. Happy birthday to your granddaughter
