December 15

Today is of course, Trooper’s seventh birthday.  As you can see, the celebrations are already underway.  We took on ice cream and cake yesterday, and will today toast the birthday appropriately.  Trooper has already opened and tried out his present — a brand new laser pointer.

In other news, Steve is into the Meds and Blood Work Waltz, so — new meds last week, blood work yesterday, med adjustment this week, blood work next week.  Hopefully, satisfactory levels will be achieved sooner, rather than later.

Tomorrow, we plan to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is still — astonishingly — playing at the Waterville Flagship. The necessity of planning errands around daylight is, shall we say, not yet intuitive.  I need to remember that, “Steve will drive us home in the dark,” is not in play at the moment.  And that the number of available daylight hours is still shrinking.

So, anyway, we’ll catch the 12:50 show in Waterville, and have twilight to drive home in.  It’s a plan.

Looking at long-range weather, Winter is blowing in from Canada.  We’re looking at dangerous wind chills today and tomorrow.  Saturday will bring us 3-5 inches of snow and Sunday — will turn warm in the daytime. . .

. . .and rain.

Whereupon the temps will plummet to 6F/-14C.

I am so very glad we have a generator.  Thank you again! to everyone who helped us make that happen.

. . .and now, I must to work.  At some point, this book has got to be done, amirite?

  1. Steve, I am sooooo glad your heart is being looked after by the doctors. (Can we thank Obamacare?)

    Thank goodness for the generator. Not funny to be out in unreasonable (read excruciatingly cold) weather. I can remember being in Minn. in December holding my hands over my face because it was too cold to breathe. You have it even worse. Try blowing soap bubbles outside when it’s really freezing. At least you can have have some fun with the weather.

    Sending you both lots of good energy. Oh, yes, happy birthday, Trooper.
