You don't realize how much you miss your youth until it's gone. The things you could do with one hand, now take both hands. That doesn't even count the extra effort it takes to pick up boxes or even full garbage cans. While you are straining to get it done, you look next door and the (40 something) is walking out with one in each hand. You know I always figured out of everything I've got, it would be my mind I would miss. My mind in still working really well, I wish my body could catch up.

Today I had to go to Iowa Falls for a funeral. My brother-in-law passed away and was buried today. It was a sad time but also a time for renewing family ties.My sister is getting along very well considering. We don't need anymore for a while.

Looked out this morning to ice everywhere. The windows on the south and east side of the house are iced over. I helped a friend yesterday and then came home and messed up. Tired I guess so entered my blog twice. I can't be doing that or I'll run out of room.

We've had 40 degree weather the last 5 days and most of the snow is melting. The weather man says the biggest storm of the winter is going to hit tonight and run through Sunday. Expected freezing rain, followed by sleet and ending with 7 to 13 inches of snow possible. I really think I would enjoy living down south. Something to think about I guess.

On any given day, you can see TV comercials for auto insurance companies saying they are the best or lowest priced company. I was talking to friends of mine that told me about a site online that also has life insurance and can give you all the quotes you could possibly want on all types of insurance even homeowners policies. The more I think about it, what could be better than price checking from the comfort of your own home. I think I'll try it.

My sister got approved by a posting company called blogsvertise.com. She tells me they send you the posts by email so you don't have to compete with everyone else. You have quite a bit of time to do them too which is great. I need to make money at home and this sounds like a great opportunity. She is going to get me more information on it and I am going to look up their website and see what it is all about. I hope I will be able to do this as it sounds very good. I got my new table set up and new monitor and it is working great so I am ready to go.

We didn't get much snow last night and that was great. Then when I tried to start the snowblower the rope starter wouldn't kick in. I guess it's either work on the blower in the cold wind or shovel it. Will have to check other places I do and if it isn't bad, just leave it.

Well, we got 4" of new snow last night and it was a job to get it all cleared out around here. I help out alot of neighbors with my snow blower. Now they say we are going to get another 4-5" tomorrow with blowing snow advisory. I sure don't look forward to that.

My best friend has a beauty shop. She has been alot of help to me over the last few years and I have helped her out at her home and shop, building a beautiful deck and many carpentry items inside. We enjoy going out for a good steak every now and then. It's great to have such a good friend.

Time to get the old snow blower out again. Looks like we have a couple of inches of new light fluffy snow and I will get out there & blow out the driveways around here as well as mine. Keeps me busy. Be glad to get back into the warm house though.

It is about -20 today with wind chills of -35 and -40. No one is going out today. If your car broke down you would freeze to death in no time. I'm in no shape to walk very far either and neither are alot of people. Good time to stay in the warm house and watch a movie.

They tell me the climate is changing. They say we have global warming and the earth is getting warmer all the time, icebergs are melting, etc. Well they ought to be here where they are having ice carnivals and we have had sub-zero temperatures for the last couple of days and going to have more for the next few days. I don't like it and I am going to stay in where it is warm all that I can.
