WOE: My way mixing it low carb
Waiting to see if we will get rain, freezing rain or an ice storm over the next couple of days. We are prepared with generator , food and kerosene and propane heaters. Even a solar charge radio with abilty to charge phones/ tablets. right now it is 70 hard to believe it will change so much tonight.
No weight change so far.

Whats everyone up too. I bet Pat is snowed in. I saw a house on FB in her area that was covered by an avalanche.

WOE: Trying to resist anything white.
Hi Guys! SS I have been MIA! We have had Storm after Storm & still in Blizzard Warning here until Thurs. pm. We have been digging out, shoveling & snow blowing. Our Office has been closed due to a decaying rodent in our heating duct. We did have a guy make it up here to retrieve it w/a long Vac hose. He thought he got it...but, after he left the smell came back inside even worse!! Duct Guy can't make it back up here due to the Blizzard. Soo, haven't been able to use the office much where the main puter is. Do have a window cracked open w/a fan on to ventilate the room in order to not have the smell spread to other rooms of our House! Yuck! We are Cabin Bound & I'm not a Happy Camper! Been feeling a bit low & trying to deal w/this!! The light is at the end of the Tunnel though! We will prolly get a break from Blizzard conditions Fri.?!!!
Will try & catch up soon & Hope all of you are doing well.

CJ~Hunker Down & take care!

Pat- Glad you may get a break from the weather soon. I hope they get your rodent smell figured out as well. Nothing worse than that smell...

Deb- So good that your scale is your friend! I am super scared of mine right now. I just can't seem to get it together. But, I will. It has to happen.

Cheryl- We've been warm the last couple of days too. Ice storm heads in tomorrow. They are worried we may end up with a half inch of ice or more.
Hopefully it won't be so bad. Be safe too, friend.

Sickness going around here, again. DS is home sick for a second day with the stuffy nose, sore throat. The other babysitting grandma is sick as well so I have baby all week so far. We are under extreme weather warnings as a big ice storm is supposed to hit us for three days starting tomorrow. I may try to get out this evening to get groceries....

We are in ice storm panic in south central kansas. The weather forecasters are predicting anywhere from a quarter inch to an inch of ice starting tonight and into Sunday. We are right along a line of warmer air so it may not happen, but everyone is preparing for the worst. The last time we had that much ice we had a lot of downed trees and power lines. I ended up being without power for 10 days as a tree fell and tore the entire electrical box off of my house. This time I am in a newer housing area and all our lines are underground, so I am optimistic that I won't have so much trouble with this storm.

Anyway, I will do my usual grocery shopping today and then be ready to hunker down for the weekend if necessary. I hope everyone else has a safe, and warm weekend.

V we are already icey. Stay safe when you get out.

DH didn't think itvlooked that bad and got ready for work. He went out to get in his work van ( too tall to fit in the garage) and it was coated in 1/4 " of ice He wasnt about to try and scrape all that!! The roads are still pretty decent from the couple of warm days we had.

Pat I'm so glad you checked in. I was worried.

Deb on the boat?

Karen are you missing this mess? Do your horses stay in the barn in winter?

Misty sis doesn't get into clean

The mess hasn't made it to us yet. Staying down in YOUR country today!!!

We are supposed to get it Sunday night into Monday........
Freezing rain followed by snow.

And the horses stay in the lot and in the barn when weather is totally lousy (or -20 degrees) They are protected......

Had a touch of the flu, so got sleep and drank plenty of water and didn't get it as bad as DS who had it over a week. Cold spell hitting again so making a nice meatloaf, smashed sweet tater and mixed roasted vegies.

Pat so glad your ok, I kept watching the news and hoping it wasn't hitting where you liked. Hope the smell is gone. I know what that's like. We had one in our wall and they couldn't get to it. So we put up with the smell until it dried out. That all the guy could do and spray in some kind of disinfectant.

V how did you make out with the ice storm. I hope it didn't hit your part. I know we have had a cold spell to, but not much snow. Hope DS is feeling better. I's going through or family too. So far DH is lucky and healthy.

Cheryl hope DH didn't try to go out in all that ice. It can be so dangerous. We've just been getting the freezing cold weather. Oh yes my sis hates cleaning. But it's because it gets so frustrating for her. Her DH deals in actions and buys stuff and puts it all over the house. He's started taking over all the rooms. He's just a jerk.

Thanks for your concern GFs! I had cabin fever Delux! Was cabin bound for 5 days!! Finally got out on Thurs. to do a major grocery shop! Learned a lesson...never go through a 5 day Blizzard w/only one Bottle of Wine! Our streets only got a narrow one car lane plowed! Could hardly back out of our driveway! Ended up hitting the snow Berm! Luckily, no busted tail light or a dent! Then, had to take the long way out due to 2 trucks blocking the street!
You all Stay safe in all these Storms coming your way!

V~Hope everyone in your household is feeling better?! Heard Kansas is getting hit Hard! Stay safe & don't get on the roads unless you Have to!

CJ~Ouch...on the ice all over DH's Van...his own personal ice cube! BTW...rodent smell is almost gone!! Yay!

Misty~Glad you're feeling better! Yeah, a decaying rodent where you can't get to it STINKS!! Your Sis' DH does sound like a Jerk! Making me hungry for meatloaf.

Deb~That taco soup sounds delish along w/the Martinis!

Karen~Howzit over there? Home bound like I was?

It's 21 & Foggy here...Burr-cold. Off to Yoga I go.

Quick check in before bed....
Much of Kansas did get hit hard. But here in Wichita we lucked out. Our temps stayed right at 32-33 so not as much ice as could have been.
Trees and power lines did ice up so some areas of town are without power, but we are fine in my area.

DH and DS were feeling sick over the weekend, but so far I have not caught it.

I will be back tomorrow for a better check in. I hope everyone else was able to ride out the weekend weather.

Costco had the coolest jeans today so I bought 3 different pair

I like the light blue ones that are called skinny jeans..very stretchy and comfortable

I'm doing chicken stir fry tonight
bought myself some little containers to start prepping leftover lunches for myself..im so bad about eating lunch so I thought if it was portioned for a couple of days I don't have a excuse..right

just pop it into the toaster oven to heat
