I hate it when a favorite blogging friend just disappears with no explanation. I’m not notifying you that I intend to leave, but I will not be posting regularly for a while. Things here in the meadow are rather difficult right now.
I’m not sure how much additional snow we got, but enough that we are again snowed in. We will be having someone plow us out later in the week. Our stove is not heating well, and is smoking a lot, and this is causing great difficulty for the Contrarian who has lung problems. We are going to have to go out in a day or so and try to cut up wood. I’m not much help but together we should be able to get in enough to keep warm.
We have food aplenty. A doctor’s appointment next week, and pretty much nothing else on the radar. Sometimes you just have to wait and hope and pray a lot. I am struggling with depression and obviously we are holding on at this point. Anything else goes wrong–well I cannot think about that.
As I feel able, I’ll post here. I’m just not able to concentrate on much of anything right now.
Take care, stay well and warm.
Sherry, how I wish I were nearby. I have no talent for fixing things, so I’d be no help with the stove. I’m lousy with tools, so the wood-cutting would probably land someone in the ER. But I make a great cup of coffee (I’m a French-press guru) and have been told I’m a swell host. We’d figure out how to get you and the Contrarian over to our place for a cuppa Joe, maybe a little Scrabble, and most certainly a lot of laughs. We’d get through this together.
Know you both are in my heart and prayers—and know the winter blues are like the weather that brings them. If not as soon as we’d like, they’ll lift sooner than we expect.
Wish I could help, too. Email if you can. Love and prayers.

Yikes. Stay warm and safe.
Well, like I often do for my friend HotCup who lives in Boonieville somewhere, I’ll be right over with something warm to drink, some knitting, and all ready for a good long chat (or not). I”m not afraid of snow becaue my virtual journeys can take place anytime and anywhere. (Now, where did I pack those cross country ski’s???)….in the mean time, before I get there (virtually), you are in my prayers.
Loan you my virtual Cross-Country skis, mompriest; how long?
I am such a jerk sometimes. If you or anyone in your family is having trouble with anything I will send whatever help i can
Chin up, Sherry and Contrarian. Groundhogs are wrong! Spring is around the corner!
We need each of you!
Hang in there, kiddo! Remember, it can always be worse…. you could be snowed in with Michelle Bachman instead of the Contraian!
Thank you all. I’m feeling better today, the sun is shining, the wood is holding out, the Contrarian is feeling much better. We have more snow coming, but have no idea how much. We will be plowed when its done…until then, cozy and well hopeful.
