God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

The next stop was the grocery. We needed several things. The parking lot was not very full. People had heard that schools would be closing early and several businesses were closing too, because of the wind. They asked if I wanted help out to the car. I just couldn't make anyone go out on a day like this...I said no thank you. On windy days the carts are flying all over the lot, so I took my cart over to the place where they keep them outside.
Then a stop at the bank and on to get Joe. I had another stop at the drug store, but waited till I got him.
When I came in the house...my forehead was so cold and red.Even with a down coat... it took me forever to warm up. I started dinner...clam chowder and sandwiches. We ate and I put the groceries away and laid down on the couch to rest. What a windy morning....I'm in for the weekend...except for bringing in the mail...I'll be in my warm house.
I'm afraid that I have neglected my little bird friends this winter. When I feed them, I just toss some seed in the tray and leave. No special treats for these guys...like dried fruit, peanuts, etc. It's kind of a treacherous walk to the feeders...the snow is hard and I walk on top of it and slide around. Someday, when it's warmer...I'm going to chop a few holes for my feet...but till then, they will have to be satisfied with what they get.
Yesterday about this time, someone rang the doorbell. It was UPS delivering something for me. The bag was so cold and so was the article of clothing inside. A swimsuit! One of the coldest days of the year, and I had ordered a swimsuit. Joe said, "Why don't you try it on?" I told him the suit was freezing cold...I would wait till later. Well, it warmed up and I disappeared to try it on. Hmmmm....same size as the other one I ordered, but it didn't fit.I'm tall and I guess I need to buy one that has a long torso. You might wonder why I took a chance and ordered on online. I had good luck with the other one, and thought I would with this one. It would save me from having to run all over creation.. looking for a swimsuit....I've done that before. So, I'll have to send it back...I found another today and ordered it...taking another chance on an online order.This will be the last one I'll order...if it doesn't work out...I'll head for the mall. I have one suit that I wear every time, so I wanted another to trade off.
Well, guess I should go. Good TV tonight...do you watch Bluebloods? It's one of our favorites. The acting is so good and the story lines aren't the typical police show. A Catholic family of policemen who always end the show...sitting around the family dinner table eating, while in conversation with the different ages represented there. Good family values are taught around that table.
Joe has the weather on in the other room....I think I will hibernate this weekend...Sounds like a weekend of very bad weather.
