Field Notes- Thursday, December 22nd. Paid bills. Added Santa Stamps. No Rain. No Snow. No Sun.

 Making me want to cut and paste paper. Circles.  Free cut circles.  Wobbly.

Paid Bills.  Gave each bill envelope a Santa Stamp. Only three numbers on today's Sudoko.  Ugh!!

We are expecting torrential rain and wind.  Here in Maine.  Fifty mile an hour stuff coming off the Ocean.  Which is just a few miles away from my house. We are supposed to EXPECT power outages.  I am going to put a pot of water on the stove and drop in frozen chicken thighs and carrots etc- we can heat soup up in the microwave.  Happy Maine Holidays.

I am also going to go do a load of laundry as we are both nearly out of clean underwear.  Unhappiness is wearing dirty underwear during a Maine Power Failure..  So-- doing laundry.......... making soup.

My cough is nearly gone.  It reappears when I talk about it being gone. So...nearly gone.

Not much good news on the television.  Not many things to watch.  I have a book I started yesterday-  one I have already read- Lucy Checks In by Dee Ernst.  She also wrote Maggie finds her Muse.  My library doesn't have the Maggie book which I like more than this one.  But this one is good. It's about French things.  I love French things. I love European things.

Phone keeps ringing.  I am always hoping it will be someone or something good.  It never is.

Well, the addressed and stamped bills aren't going to walk themselves out to the mailbox on the street. So I am going to bundle up and venture forth......  It's December 22nd. Nearly to the end of 2022..... Lots of 2's.

The snow is coming down sideways here. The temperature has dropped 15 degrees in the last hour and will continue to drop until it's below zero. Winds will be reaching 50 mph later today and into the night. Wind chills will be between 30 to 40 below zero. We are also hearing that we should expect power outages as everything will be so cold that lines will just snap.

Bird feeders are filled. The back of my truck is filled with firewood. I feel very sorry for anyone or anything that has to be outdoors these next few days and nights

Stay safe, Joanne.

Diane must live near my neck of the woods I woke up this morning to 5” of snow and 19 degrees below zero. We have a wood burning stove so heat isn’t a problem. Merry Christmas, friend.
