Sleet & shred!

Hello all, hope all is well with everyone today.

We had Sleet today! Yes, sleet. Yes, really. Yes, sleet. A rare occasion here in Southeast Texas!
And it was cold today. Ok, so I can see some of ya'll sneering at me. Stop it. It was cold for us here in Southeast Texas, so there! And well, I was wrong, but I already did a video & I was wrong. It's not in the freezing temps tonight like I thought it would be. But I will not be complaining about that. So you're surprised huh? No? I didn't think so ;-) It's actually 2 degrees warmer tonight than it was today. Today was 42, tonight, 44. Break out the burmuda's baby! Bermudas? Ah well, you know what I'm saying. But my electric heater is churning on HIGH! Because I'm cold. It was 64 in here, so I kicked up the heat. Will turn it back to the 1st level though once I turn on the electric blanket. I should be snuggled in bed now, but this is the only time I've had today to blog, so be it.

Here is a video of our sleet. Ok, so you really can't see the sleet, but if you listen REAL HARD, you "might" be able to hear it! Yea, ok, don't strain your ears...

So what else did I do today, other than the regular chores? I went through 3 boxes of paper work & shredded away! So what's one of the things you grab from your home when a hurricane is approaching? The shredder?? Well, I guess because I still have it. Strange what we do, but I'm glad I have it.

What did my computer do while I was shredding away bits of paper, credit card invites, receipts, etc? It was doing this:

And it did that for 3.5 hours. I thought it would never quit! But I had to defrag because my computer became non-responsive. When that happens, I am usually tempted to go toss it in a pond. I used to want to toss my computer in the bayou when I lived near the bay, but there aren't any here. There are ponds though! :::blurp:::blurp:::blurp:::   I don't leave it on 24/7. If I did, it would have to have CPR. Computer Program Rescue. (that sounds lame). So I usually defrag it myself rather than let the computer auto defrag because my computer is off at night. And I don't want it defragging when I'm trying to use it otherwise.

So much for that boring subject. So much for my boring day. So now ya'll can sleep well after reading this post. ;-) 

My puppy dogs all got raw bones today. They were happy campers. They don't get cooked bones because they can become brittle & actually be life threatening to a dog. And cooking them also makes them harder, so bad for the teefeys. They have to wear snoods when they eat so they don't eat their ears too. I just realized I don't have a picture of a saluki with a snood on. Oh wait, yes I do. Poor Feather wore one when I stuck those leaves in it for her Thanksgiving photo!

I think maybe I embarassed her that day...ya think?

OK, time to call it a night. Sleep well everyone.

~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~


  1. You're getting pretty fancy with the camera, video, subtitles, fades. Very nice.

  2. Shredding while defragmenting your PC? Wow, talk about multi-tasking! It seems that you are quite serious with de-cluttering your space physically and virtually. I think it is a good habit and everyone should do it once in a while. For one, you can make room for other papers in your filing cabinet and your PC.
