Yesterday afternoon we watched at snow fell from the sky. It was not in the forecast but apparently a system moved in a direction they were not expecting and we got about an inch to an inch and a half that mostly melted on contact with the warmer ground. This morning I had to get the ice off the windshield but most of the snow just swept off. The only area where we had to be careful was anywhere that the sun hadn’t hit because that was a sheet of black ice.

Most of yesterday was not how we expected the day to go. Caroline woke up feeling under the weather so we stuck to the house for the day and I got a number of projects done around here that have needed doing. I am happy that I got the cat boxes done before the snow started as are the cats. I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup for dinner from scratch. As it simmered, the smell permeated through the house and it felt very comfortable and homey.

This morning we got up and Caroline was feeling like herself again so we went to the gym to exercise which we had planned to do so yesterday but cancelled after it was apparent what Caroline needed. I was in the locker room when I heard a very young voice say, “Can I see the picture on your arm?” It was a little girl who was looking at the bottom of the tattoo. I pulled up my sleeve and showed it to her. She declared it very pretty and told me that her uncle had a bunch of pictures on his arms but mine was much nicer. Her mother came around the corner and apologized but I told her no worries. The mom then said that my tattoo was much nice than what her brother had.

It is January, which means that a lot of people are having a go at the gym. Makes things much more crowded and it can be harder to get the routine done but it is nice to see so many trying to do something to better their lives. I showed one lady how a machine works and how to get the full range of motion on it. Caroline got her cardio machine when she wanted it with no problem. I helped another lady out because I could get the machine to lock higher so she could do her exercise correctly. She was kind enough to let me finish my sets on the machine. It was nice seeing honest give and take and no machine hogging.

Falcons and Pats made it through to the next round. Both were pretty brutal games.

Today my goal is to finish the laundry and get the soup pot clean. Anything else is gravy.

I am grateful for Caroline’s crafty skills.
