Not a great week so far. After going to bed Sunday night, I was visited by "the stomach flu". Finally started keeping food down yesterday afternoon. The only positive thing is that I lost 3 pounds but would not recommend this as a diet plan.
Now we are awaiting another un-welcome visitor - The snow storm that has battered New England for the past 24 hours. It is already in parts of Nova Scotia and is supposed to arrive here in a few hours. Did I mention I hate January??
Whenever it starts to snow I think about my Grandmother. She would always insist someone take her to the store for "Bread and Milk" as soon as she heard a weather report calling for snow. She always said we would be OK if we had enough bread and milk for a few days. I always teased her but it has become imprinted in my brain. So at lunch time......I went and bought bread and milk! I'm sure she is looking down and laughing at me.
As I am typing I see a few stray snow flakes falling by the window. Better dig out the candles just in case. We have already lost our electricity 3 times this winter, so I think -- better safe than sorry.
