Wednesday, January 4, 2023, MN - the winter wonderland.

Happy New Year to all.  I celebrated a little.  We had a New Year’s Eve party with about 15 attendees, music, and lots of snacks.  It started at 6pm and everything was cleaned up and put away by 8:30 and I was in bed by 9:30.  It was nice to see folks in good spirits and outside the daily routine. 

I did some shopping on Monday and picked up a roll-up puzzle mat so I could get started on the puzzle that I got from Lois and Dennis for Christmas.  I started it that night, then worked on it a good part of the day yesterday (you might say I was obsessive), and will probably wrap it up before I go to bed tonight.  I did it! Two missing pieces - I think Joey had a snack.

I just came in from clearing off another car after we got 13” of wet snow over the last two days.  I cleared mine off twice yesterday and earlier this afternoon, then took care of Joann’s.  Deb and I got together this afternoon and decided to go down and help some folks out, so she did mostly shoveling so people could get to their doors and clearing the rear so they could back out - all cars have to be out of lot for a complete lot cleanup ( whenever there is more than 4” of snow. What a mess!

My car (right) had been cleared twice before this.
