Out and about

Well, I wanted to get up early so that I could get to the mall to take advantage of all the after Christmas sales.  Then I woke up and realized I was in Karaganda and that wasn’t going to be happening…  No, really, I hope those of you who got up and out today in the US enjoyed the sales.

I did wake up late this morning in time to speak with Cathy and Bob in Fort Worth, then I got dressed and walked to my haircut appointment.  I must tell you that it was incredibly COLD (-24 F when I left this house).  However it only felt really bad when I was walking into the wind…

After I got the haircut I walked over to check on my car.  It started (PTL!!!).  Then I went to the store to purchase a broom.  It is my month to clean the apartment corridor and my neighbor called to ask me to have it done before New Years.  The hallway is very dirty considering the weather…

I went to the Police station to check and see if my last document was ready.  I gave her the temporary document and she asked me to have a sit and it would be ready in 3 hours.  If only I had known, I would have taken a book to read or at least Sudoku.  Fortunately, the doc was ready after 2 hours!!!

I drove to the parking lot and walked home.  It was getting dark and with the wind blowing in my face, I was glad I didn’t have far to go.

It did warm up today.  Right now (7 p.m.) it is -15.  We’re having a heatwave!!!
