It started sleeting here a little while ago. I had heard the weather might get a little nasty, so I filled all the bird feeders and then headed to the grocery store this afternoon to get a few things. It was very busy and people were stocking up as if they were expecting to be snowed in for days. Why do we do that? I already had enough on hand that should we not be able to get out we would not starve for several days. But, I needed those important items like...another bag of potato chips, dip, little smokies, cheese and crackers. You know, in case the electric goes out. lol!
Speaking of getting groceries...do you keep an emergency supply of food on hand to last a couple of months or longer? Just curious. I don't hoard food, but I do keep stocked up on essential items. I will buy extra when essential items are on sale at a good price.
I want to replace some of my houseplants as soon as I see some nice ones at one of those home centers. It's supposed to be hard to kill a pothos, but I can do it! And I'm counting the days until spring when we'll see spring flowers blooming. Speaking of spring flowers...do you remember the mystery tulips my daughter got for Valentine's Day? Well, she knew they weren't from her boyfriend and told the girls at work that he wasn't too happy about her getting flowers from a mystery man, so her assistant and another teacher confessed that they got them for her.
Little Tuffy is feeling more like himself again after being sick. He started out by limping and then he began vomiting several times a day. He then quit eating and just laid around and slept. The vet said it was probably gastritis and the limping was from a small abscess. He was given shots and an antibiotic to take, so all's well again.
Commenting on blogs is still a hit and miss for me. I have had this problem for way too long. I'll type out my comment and hit publish and it won't publish. I try to remember to copy my comment so when that happens I can paste and hit publish again. Usually the second time it will go through. Does this ever happen to you? It's very frustrating.
