We got a bunch of freezing rain and sleet on Sunday. Everything is a skating rink outside. I don't think I will even go after the mail as the driveway is very slick and it is probably just junk mail anyway. The mailboxes are quite deep so would hold a lot anyway. We have extremely thick fox too. Started last night and they say it is going to last till tomorrow. Then we may get some snow. Snow on top of the ice won't be good either. I see the neighbor has been scraping ice off his sidewalks for an hour now. Also scraped his driveway. It's no fun.

My husband always hated the cold weather. He dreaded winters. He worked outside most of his life. I know he got very cold so much of his life that he just hated it. He is dead now so he doesn't have to suffer anymore of these cold winters. Last year wasn't so bad but this year is making up for it. It was -3 a bit ago and now is up to zero with wind chills that are dangerous. They say just 10 to 15 minutes outside with bare face or hands and you will have frostbite. Not a happy prospect. Good day to stay in and enjoy the warmth from the furnace.

I have been joining my brother for Mexican at Taco Johns in the town where he lives. They have a special on Tuesdays where the tacos are about half price and you are not limited to how many you buy. It is a very busy lunch time there so we try to get there early. This week we need to go on into a bigger town next door to make some Christmas gift exchanges, so we will go to the Taco Johns there. Their food is delicious no matter which one you go to. We look forward to Tuesdays.
