Old school – I hate making phone calls. I prefer sending an email or a text. I met up with my old exercise ladies this past week. Two of us emailed back and forth setting the date and place two months ago. The other planner called a few people and I gave the information verbally to a few. I didn’t have a lot of confidence that they would remember. I didn’t have contact info to follow up. No one I invited showed up. I don’t take these things personally. We had a nice group of five which is the right number if you want to hear everyone. I’ve gotten some phone numbers for the next one in January. Boogers. Deep in my heart I must be a millennial.
Does anyone really use it? – I bought a new sweater this week. It wasn’t expensive, just a cable crewneck. It came with a little packet of matching yarn. Does anyone really fix an unraveling sweater?
No, not snowbirds! – One sure sign of winter is when the Juncos arrive in our area. They are here until spring, eagerly waiting for dinner on my patio. A local friend had some in her yard. They haven’t make it to my full service restaurant yet. I’ll have some bubbly waiting for them.
Following up on winter – We had our first frost here. I woke up to ice around the edge of the pond and really cold temperatures. Fish were sluggish at the bottom and no frog to be seen.
Projections – I heard there’s a good chance we will have snow for Thanksgiving. It’s kind of funny. They can’t predict the weather for tomorrow but they are predicting two weeks out.
So how was your week?
