I am reading Death At Gallows Green by Robin Paige.

42 degrees with light rain this morning when I took Colin out. Rain has moved out followed by 15 to 25 mph winds and sunshine. It’s currently 44 degrees which will be the high for the day as temps fall to 32 by tonight and the winds hang around.

Laundry and other assorted projects for today including mixing up another suet cake to chill in the fridge for the birds.

33 degrees with rain/freeing rain falling. Sidewalk, steps, and driveway were slick with freezing rain that fell over night. I left for the gym about 9 to get in a quick workout before I had to get back home and then back to work my shift.

The roads were actually better this morning than they were Wednesday morning. Colin slipped going out this morning so I put some play sand I keep in the garage down on the steps and sidewalk.

Temperatures are in the upper 30’s with just rain and fog this afternoon. More rain tonight but temperatures are supposed to stay above freezing.

24 degrees, sunny, and calm this morning when I left for the gym. Sunny but chilly today with highs in the low 30’s but thankfully no wind. Nasty stuff coming in tonight; freezing rain, sleet, etc.

I was home and back to the gym to work.

34 degrees with 15 mph winds when I left for the gym. The deck was covered in sleet. and the driveway and sidewalk iced over from the mixed precipitation that fell over night. My road was just partially frozen over and the the main roads were fine. The road the gym is on was a little worse but no problem for the Subaru.

We may have more of the same starting tomorrow night into Friday so I made a grocery store stop on the way home today. Temperatures are in the upper 30’s with 15 to 20 mph winds. Cold but clear for tonight.

I volunteered at the bookstore this morning. Poor Colin, no outdoor playtime two days in a row due to the wet weather. Lots of indoor ball playing this afternoon.

33 degrees with partly sunny skies and calm. Temperatures may not make it out of the 30’s today but thankfully, no wind.

House cleaning chores this morning. I finished up my Christmas cards, cleaned off my desk, and paid some bills.

I am binge watching The Repair Shop on Netflix this afternoon. Interesting British show with crafts people fixing on heirlooms.

34 degrees, sunny, and calm this morning.

Colin and I went out about 9:30 to pick up sticks and limbs from the wind storms. I had a wheelbarrow full from just the back and side of the yard and another wheelbarrow full from what fell under the pine trees.

I tidied up and swept out the garage then came back in to get the laundry started. While that washed I worked on Christmas cards. Assorted to-do’s in the house this afternoon.

Sunny and mid 40’s this afternoon but temperatures tonight will go down into the mid 20’s.

34 degrees and sunny but still gusting winds when I left for the gym. Sunny today with temperatures again in the mid 40’s. The wind finally died down this afternoon. They rally howled last night rattling the shutters and the rafters. More limbs and sticks down in the yard to get up this weekend.

I worked my regular shift at the gym.
