We are home, it is again snowing, and 13 degrees.

It is going to be one of those winters, but I have firewood.

Love the steady heat of a wood burner.

Yep, it’s an incomparable thing on a cold day, Gerard... and so cold here that I’m going to have to run the furnace at night.

I don’t like emptying live coals with ash in the mornings before I light a fire...best just to let it die out and cool off.


This movie was on HBO last evening, and tho it has mixed reviews, I thought it was excellent...and Jessica Chastain particularly outstanding in her portrayal of the compassionate and courageous lead character.

As with all Holocaust movies that I have seen, and the books I have read, it is emotionalizing traumatizing thru its depiction of the dehumanizing brutality against Jews.

I then couldn’t sleep, but it was worth it...there will be chamomile tea tonight.

Good morning, Maggie. I have that movie as well and found it as you described it....quite brutal and traumatic....hard to watch, but, well played.

I feel we must watch and read of such difficult reminders of the holocaust, to remind all of us....of the terrible things some psychotic monsters are willing to do to others. Once history is ignored....it may well be repeated by other power hungry monsters...many exist today, in multiple sectors of our current world. Being aware....staying alert...being willing to fight for our freedoms, supporting our police forces and our military....this can and will prevent repitition of such brutality.

Happy new year to all. Evelyn.

I agree, Evelyn...an uncomfortable truth, but one it behooves us all to educate ourselves on.

It is snowing hard here, and temps are fixin’ to drop like a stone.

The RAV4 is in the garage, family gig set for tomorrow has been postponed and we may well be dug in here for a week...and, it’s okay.

I have been in serious, scarf-making mode...have 11 in my donation pile, and look to have another 5-6 completed while sitting out the weather.

A good thing.

Maggie

Life can change in an instant....

About mid day on Saturday the 30h, I was standing at my kitchen sink trying to flush my right eye with water...hand soap having squirted into it.

I suddenly experienced severe vision disturbances, vertigo, loss of equilibrium, followed soon after by violent nausea and vomiting.

I thought I had injured my eye, when my son got to my house he could tell my left eye was not tracking, and took me to the ER.

I had a small bleed at the stem of my brain, they administered something to reverse the anti-coagulation meds and admitted me to ICU.

Moved out of there yesterday, and expected to be discharged to Home today.

Eyes have improves but still not right or working together, but no other impairment and neurologist expects my eyes to correct over 3-6 weeks.

No driving for an indeterminate period of time, and lots of specialist follow up needed, so trip south is cancelled.

I have had excellent medical care and am very grateful the event was not worse.

Reading and typing are arduous, as my eyes donít focus, so donít know when I will be back on here regularly, but wanted to post something to let folks know what is going on.

Maggie, doing well at this point in time.

Maggie, so sorry to hear what you went thru and glad you are doing better.

I knew something, besides busy, was up as you had not been on here for a bit.

Blessings and prayer being sent your way.

Life is fleeting, precious, fragile and for an undetermined amount of time.

Take good care of yourself.

That is disappointing; I was looking forward to finally meeting you.

I will be praying daily for your swift and complete recovery.

Glad you're home, Maggie. Take care. Hug Lily a lot. Dogs are good therapy for almost anything.
