A Robin

Woke to a sprinkling of snow then every kind of weather today—wind, snow, sleet and more wind—blew through, nothing to speak of in the way of moisture.  After our walk I spent the day sorting and putting away stuff with a couple loads of laundry thrown in.  It is just absolute pleasure to use my own washing machine again (sick aren’t I??) 

There is a lot of talk in magazines and on TV about the need to exercise and that you should walk 10,000 steps per day to be healthy.  Well, I’m not having a bit of trouble getting those steps in—my refrigerator died—yes, my less than 10 year old big stainless steel refrigerator died.  I have another regular sized refrigerator in the basement so everything went into that one which means when I cook I have to go up and down the basement stairs to get stuff—nope, those 10,000 steps were easy to get today!  We have another really small refrigerator that was an extra one we used when we had the 5th wheel—it fit very nicely into the washer/dryer closet and we loved having the extra refrigerator/freezer space.  We are going to move that small refrigerator upstairs to use until we go to Billings and get another one. 

After lunch we drove over to Lonn and LoraLee’s on the West Boulder to pick up our mail—we have our very own private mail service—the post office just starts putting our mail in their box when we leave for the winter—how simple is that???  We just call LoraLee and tell her where to send the mail if we want it while down south.  It was good to visit with them and Emmi had a great time playing with all the dogs.

I walked out to the compost pile a while ago and heard and saw a robin—I’m afraid he/she may get a little cold before spring actually gets here but it was good to see one!  I also think I heard a sandhill crane but I could be mistaken. 

Here are a couple of photos I took today going over to Lonn and LoraLee’s.

  1. I know exactly what you are talking about concerning your washer and dryer. I always used to feel the same way after getting home. That and a long hot shower and my own bed and bedroom!! Heaven.

  2. Glad you made it home safely and to no snow on the ground. Sorry about the fridge, though, but the steps you're getting are good!
