Snow at last! But it's barely covering the hardened ground. It's -5 degrees as we get into the car for church and our best friend was the heater from the front and the hot air from the back seat.
Actually, she was quiet for most of the journey...does she secretly read my blog or is she worried about her friend? I think the latter is probably the truth of the matter. The cancer has returned to haunt Dot and she was to start chemotherapy again this week. They stopped abruptly, wide-eyed and needle mid-air when they found out she hadn't taken the pre-requisite medication. I was shocked to learn that had they injected her, it would have resulted in instant death. Surely that can't be right? Anyway, she was shocked too and had to return after the steroids had taken effect.
We visited Bev's family in Mansfield after church and enjoyed a spread associated with causing a spread...if you get my drift, or is that midriff? It was good to see everyone but we had to leave early because of the snow. Yes, the SNOW! As we drove onto our drive however, it was apparent that no snow had fallen in Newark.
Incidentally, it was so cold today that one of the windows at church-a toilet window intact for over forty years- suddenly shattered when the heater below it was turned on.
It's nice to be snug, warm and cosy indoors on a day like today.
We'll be watching 'Cranford' in a little while as we write Christmas cards to post tomorrow...better late than never!
If I don't wake up to heavy snow, I'll be most disappointed.
