Two days

Not many pictures yesterday but fun non the less. It was rib/swim night.

Harrison has discovered sleeping under the blanket. Pretty sure he wishes he could turn the heat up but he's not the one with the hot flashes.

I gave Karen a start out of the corner of her eye after swimming last night. With my mom like kerchief and puffy coat.

I did not start wearing hats until I was 50 but now I wear them with a vengeance.

It was a balmy -7° today! Windchill was only like -12 or 15.

The squirrels were out playing full force. They are still fat and happy. I put most of my squirrel pictures in this movie But here are a few.

Someday you'll see why I take the same pictures every time I go by these roses. I don't really know myself so it'll be fun to find out. It's quite startling to see earlier pictures of them.

Harry and I got the tissue paper out but...

Turns out he wanted to go outside.

Only one spike showing...

And sadly no cat nip has sprouted due to the warmer weather.

He's still got faith in spring.

Big news of the day is the joy we feel welcoming my little great niece Elizabeth Catherine into the world!

Can't wait till we get to meet her. In the meantime her grandma, my sister Anne, is heading over to Scotland with her camera primed and ready. So happy! Congratulations Heather and Gary!

Sunny and cold again today.

Glad my apt is not under this:

At this point I wonder if warmer weather might be harder on the ladies than the cold but I'm willing to find out.

Harrison sits in the window. He knows how cold it is. Today we stopped the charade and didn't put the harness on. But we used the time of me coming in from my walk to start a new routine of concentrated play.

Tissue paper makes everything way more exciting.

FaceTimed with the kids tonight.

Emily got third place in a poster contest!


And I set a new record for non stop walking:

I wish I knew what unit of measure the machine is using. If it's point 6 of a mile my walking apps that are telling me it's 2.6 km around my building are waaaay off. The fastest I've walked around the building (in the summer) is 18 minutes which included 2 rests and 2.6 km is more than a mile. Makes my brain hurt.

Oh well whatever it is, I've never walked .61 of it at once before and I'm happy about that.
