    I hate therapy, too! What are you getting help with?

    As to how to survive these frigid temps - well, you just do. We are used to it - mind you this year, it's been a bit much... You dress properly, and plan trips that are only necessary and short. I'm just sure hoping my husband doesn't have to work outside today!

    I don't have to go out, fortunately. The care co-ordinator from community services is coming to see me after lunch.

    Nice pictures @GoodBoy .

    Good to see the sun finally. I was able to take the 1/4 inch of ice off the hood of my truck. It was so satisfying sliding it off in one sheet And after I did that I realized that I will have to buff it in the spring to get the tiny scratches off. Dumbass.

    Yes, Nat- home is "normal " - right. If you came down to our sweltering humidity in the summer-you'd probably say, "How do you stand this!" Not to downplay the challenges of your winter! Especially with mobility challenges.
    Tell that care coordinator that you need MORE help because your dh is challenged at the moment-maybe she/he'll give your dh help with snow shovelling. You don't get what you don't ask for with these home service providers. They can only say "Sorry."
    Have a good afternoon.

    Avon, I know for sure I could not handle any bigger humidity than what we get here...

    The care coordinator just left, she was here for almost three hours! Amazing woman, we went through so many things and she outlined all things offered, some I don't need and some I do. I have a lot to absorb and go through!

    Have a nice evening, everyone!

    Nat-glad you got all that good info!
    Took Tootie to my friend's to meet the dog she'll be staying with. They were great-not "bosom buddies" yet but both were OK with the "sniff routine." No agression on either side. They both settled down and went to sleep. Wow! That was a big load off my mind. We'll have several other visits but the first one was reassuring.

    My wonderful friend made me 6 pairs of mittens-2 for myself and 4 for the sale. She offered to make any of my family mittens too, if they want them. She cuts up old sweaters-washes them first to tighten up the weave and then sews several parts together and lines them with fleece. They are fun and cosy!

    Well I guess Mardi Gras has begun! Do you have a favourite treat besides pancakes to eat on Shrove Tuesdays? There are special doughnuts called "pounchskis" (not spelled anything like that) that are favorites around here. People will line up around the block tomorrow at the Bakery in Chatham to get them. They are fruit filled and about 100000 calories each. Prune filled ones are the traditional flavour.

    I will stick to pancakes, myself -with real maple syrup and butter and blueberries or raspberries.

    Good night my friends!

    Avon, this is the first year we bought paczki, wowsers are they good! Had ones with raspberry filling. My husband ate the custard ones, I didn't like those. I would have absolutely loved the prune ones, that's a traditional filling for Ukrainian Christmas pampushky, which are a type of doughnut.

    I had assumed the paczki would be just like Bismarks, but the dough is so much richer and heavier, oh so good!

    I've been trying to sleep, but am up every hour, it's just gross..

    @avoncallingu - the donuts that are 100000 calories each are the best ones! It's a donut rule, dontcha know
    @Natalka - we have a Polish bakery chain here that sells those
    paczki donuts. But then I realized the Superstore has them also for much cheaper and just as good. I'm with your hubby - I like the custard ones too.
    -11 right now, feels like -15, so not very breezy. @danger_dan - I can hardly wait

    Husband bought the paczki at Independent, I don't even know if any individual bakeries have them - we don't have any Slavic ones, anyways.

    Gee, now I want one, and they are all gone....
