There Goes the Neighborhood

I am hoping to get this written and posted before anything gets too crazy. The temperature is near freezing, the wind is strong enough that even the biggest trees are bending sideways and it is a rain snow mix coming down. The skies are dark as if it were dusk, not midmorning. Stella is curled up behind me in several blankets.

I took yesterday for myself. I made some headway on my novel. I think the story has become much bigger and more involved that I planned. I will go over some of it today but not too much. Things need to stew in the back of my mind for a bit. I did take Stella for a walk. We only did one loop (so 1/2 mile). It was too cold with that wind. It cut through everything! I also got most of my outdoor furniture into the shed for the season. The only thing still out is my aqua chair by the sliding glass door. I just couldn’t tuck it away yet. I may tomorrow if the weather lets up.

The big excitement was my quarterly Supernatural box arrived. Sadly I wasn’t too impressed. There were a few things (like the awesome flannel shirt, rib cage pin and special calendar that glow in the dark) that I really liked but the rest was a bit meh. What I like about the company though is they will send out an email asking what you liked and didn’t like with every box. I have a good response for them this box! Unfortunately I did not make it to the next round in my horror competition. I was in first for a bit but then fell back to second which is where I finished. I am super proud and grateful for making it as far as I did though.

I seem to be developing one of those weather headaches. Bah humbug. I have things to do! Oh well. I will just have to deal with it. I buzzed around and got the house as best I could (I need to vacuum only Chris gets up, as I forgot yesterday) so that if we end up losing power we will be caught up (laundry, dishes, etc) and batteries/back up stuff charged. I am also thinking of getting another case of water to keep stashed. For some reason I feel the need to have things stocked up for emergencies this year. I also need to pack my yearly winter emergency bag for the car. It won’t be as necessary as I live so close to work but still. I started doing it when I was working at Younker’s.

This headache is becoming a bit much so I will wrap this up and get it posted. I enjoy reading your posts this morning. Keep up the great writing! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
