Monday, March17, was my sister, Pat’s birthday. Pat came to visit me for a few hours and we enjoyed lunch together. My sister only lives in Schenectady but we don’t see each other as much as we’d like to.
As I was reading one of my Danielle Steele mysteries I reached a page that reminded me of our daughters and the talks we would have as they grew up. Jim and I agreed that they should be encouraged to talk with either one of us about any subject they wanted to talk about.
On Monday, March 10, it was such a cold wintry day that I decided to spend my time making turkey soup. Tuesday, March 11, wasn’t much better. It was too cold to go anywhere so I did laundry. Wednesday, March 12, was another wintry day with four inches of snow falling through the day. Then, an ice storm struck.
In 1945 Vaughn Monroe recorded, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! It is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne and it was written in Hollywood, Calif. during one of the hottest days on record. It became a popular hit, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard music chart the following year.
On Monday, March 3, baby Zoey arrived at 7:30 a.m. for our day together. She loves my dogs. They are four year-old, Ginger and 15-month-old Reba. She could watch them all day. If I let them out to romp in the snow and sit by the window with Her, she is in her glory and could sit and watch for hours.
Jim, my husband, was rummaging around in the kitchen when I called to him asking what he was doing. “Looking for a snack” he responded. He walked around the corner with a big smile on his face, and I knew that I had caught him in the act of nighttime kitchen raiding.
Everyday activities and sounds can seem very strange when you are deep in thought. I was reading the latest book that I picked up at the library when my cell phone rang and made me jump. Although the ring tone is very familiar, hearing it in the quiet of my home while engrossed in my new book was almost alarming.
Monday, Feb.24, was very cold, barely made it to 17-degrees. It was very warm in my house. It was my Zoey day. She is in the midst of cutting teeth and chewing on everything, especially toys. She loves to eat. She pulls herself up and grabs everything with those little hands, especially glasses.
