Ready or not, the snow is here! I thought I would take my camera with me when I had the dog out this morning and my camera apparently decided to take a picture on its own – I thought this upside down picture of the tree with the pretty leaves in a snow storm was kind of fitting for this post.
We had no snow when I went to bed last night, but woke up to snow this morning.
I am kind of half ready for the snow. Ever since I had the surgery on my foot, I have been wearing sneakers. Those are fine in the summer (unless you want to get dressed up) but not so warm in the winter. My neurologist actually suggested getting ankle ones to help support my ankles more with the drop foot. I saw that SAS had some ankle boots so Santa (aka my mother) offered to get them for me for Christmas. The shoe store had to order the wide ones for me (the foot with the reconstruction is wider than normal) and we just went about 1 ½ weeks ago to pick them up. Santa said I might need them so she gave them to me early. Although I have the boots, I did not get to wear them to break them in slowly. I tested them this morning.
Alex managed to find a little bit of green sticking thru the grass. This looks like a gooid spot!
I really think he just wants to go back in. I can hear him thinking, Mom are you nuts!
I just got a new supply of both Levemir and Apidra insulin so I have plenty of blood sugar downers. My sister found the big packs of Smarties in the Halloween section, so she bought me plenty of blood sugar uppers. My guess is that I will run out of downers before I run out of uppers!
The power already went out once this morning. My phone is charging. I have plenty of candles, but no working flashlights because someone didn’t get batteries yet.
After the power went out this morning while I was cooking Alex’s chicken, I had to wonder how I will feed him if we lose power. One big downfall of homemade dog food! I guess he will
be forced have to eat cat food. If he knows that, he is probably praying for the power to go out!
