Dodged a bullet...
We were supposed to get 1/2 inch of ice overnight. That is plenty enough to take the power down, so I was a bit concerned about our tropical bird. However, we got up this AM and it was as dry as a bone. Weirdo weather people. Maybe it IS all about the ratings.
I kinda fell off the raw wagon yesterday...no binge, but ate some snacky food as an emotional reaction. My step siblings' father died; he'd been sick for several years, so it was somewhat expected. Still...and right before Christmas. Anyway, I knew him from my nieces birthday parties, etc., and liked him very much. And I really feel for my steps, as I love them very much. We've been related now for over 25 years, since they were children and I was in my early 20s.
My mother's Christmas package arrived yesterday, along with the death news, so I broke open the amaretto pecans (oh my!) and ate myself quite a few while I talked to my sis on the phone. Funny, it's just what my dad was doing when he called to tell me...eating nuts. We are so alike....I knew why he was calling when he said hello.
So, kinda blue around here, but other than the pecans, I've been doing well. Hope you all are the same.
