Good morning fellow frugalites,

Yep we have snow. Heavy, wet snow that is causing the branches of trees to bend with the weight. There is supposed to be even more falling today and tomorrow. The moisture is needed, but I am pretty sure the vast majority would rather have had it fall in the form of a nice rain all day yesterday and for most of the evening. So now the old homestead looks like a Christmas card instead of a spring that is turning green. Welcome to life on the Canadian prairies.

I am still running a fever and have the chills as well as a headache this morning. I will be phoning my dentist office to tell them my appointment needs to be rebooked for a later date. Hopefully not too long into the future.

Happy about one thing though. Two more of those stubborn absorbable stitches have fallen out. Wonder if any more will do so over the next few days. So looking forward to not having them catch on my clothing.

Today will be spent inside getting things done. I do the household tasks first and then do some baking. I doubt very much I will be setting foot outside the door unless it is this afternoon and I go and get the mail. Perhaps I will get my sewing/crafting/knitting mojo back and continue on with getting a few things completed.

Menus are made for this week and will be followed once again. No company and no need to make something different other than what I have chosen. I do have to bring a container of the stuffed peppers upstairs though. Most of the other items are already in the fridge freezer. I will need to bring up the hotdogs as well.

Laundry day as well here on the old homestead. Hubby has at least one less week of this chore, but I am thinking that pushing the heavy vacuum around will have to wait until after my specialist visit at the end of the month.

I will need to dust, clean the sinks and counters in the kitchen, clean what I can in the bathroom, and clean the bedrooms. All with periods of resting between chores.

Supper tonight is going to be sausages, just not too sure what type of sausages at this moment. Thinking a small sausage casserole would use up some of the carrots in the fridge and leave me leftovers for a clean out the fridge night. I must decide fairly soon.

Today I am grateful that my dentist is accommodating in regards to rescheduling. I will be able to pick a date or go on a waiting list to be put whenever my name comes up and I can get in on a cancellation.

Everybody have a great day. Take care.
Hope you feel better fast, Jackie. I was down for a day after my second vaccine - felt pretty yucky - but just kept telling myself it means the vaccine is working. I slept a lot the next day.

I wish this was my second shot. Just my first....hate to see what the second will bring.

Good morning all

I stayed up very late last night. I did nap in the afternoon so wasn't too bad

But there was a huge fire out in the country and I was reading the updates. It is a family compound - and maybe 5 housed burned down

The COD is outside working on the second small leak. We've filled up buckets of water for the potty.

Lets see how it goes.

Have a great day.

Gosh, Jackie. I will keep fingers crossed for you that you get the unpleasantness out of the way now and the second shot gives you no reactions.

I was up and out of the house by 7:15 AM due to a pulmonary Dr appointment in another town. It was a 62 mile round trip. She was happy with my compliance and I will be getting a new c-pap machine. Medicare allows a new one every 5 years. The new one will have some kind of a pressure variance that my old machine does not have which will be better for me. However I will need to continue with the high pressure. Bummer. I was hoping to get it reduced. She said I use the highest pressure allowed and I do need it. She said I still have severe sleep apnea sometimes I stop breathing for 71 seconds and about 72 times in a 4 hour period. Some of this is due to my ALS.I feel the need for a nap or at least stretching out on my bed for a nap.

Teddi is doing better today since the wind has slowed down and the sun is out. He has really been stressed out the last two days due to rain and wind one day and then just high wind yesterday.
Not much else planned for today.

Have a good day. Stay safe and frugal.

In my experience - it was rough - but over fast. Just don't plan on doing anything the whole next day.
