I think we've hit the dog days of winter if there is such a thing. Just when we really want winter to be finished, we've been experiencing the winteriest part of this winter. Today marks our sixth snowday (as in school buses cancelled) in 3 weeks. We have not experienced this many cancellations in the kids' 5 years of school.
We had company on the weekend as Sue's sister and BIL visited. Aside from getting together the main reason was to attend a lecture on Friday night. Confidently, I avowed that we didn't need the GPS because I knew exactly where I was going. Which was true, except I didn't.
The map in my head was just slightly off. I thought our turnoff was just after a certain main street. So, we passed that street and kept driving and driving — for 10 minutes anyway. It turned out that we should have turned just before that particular street, but I wasn't even looking at that point.
On Sunday, we went to a quaint English-style pub, the Old Mill at Ashton, that I mentioned a few posts back. We had enjoyed decent finger foods while there, and since Brian is a beer connoisseur and they do brew craft beers on site, we thought it would make for a nice outing.
We all had terrible meals. Really bad. As is yucky yuck yuck. And Brian didn't exactly rave about the beer either.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, one of my hearing aids has crapped out. To repair it will cost ~$450. But they are almost 6 years old. If I repair one, the other could require repairs tomorrow. OTOH, new devices will set me back $3000, give or take. What to do? Sigh.
Meanwhile, I am saying "Eh?" a lot — even more than usual.
Since we plan to head away to the cottage on the weekend or early next week, I will be saying "Eh?" and driving people and myself crazy for at least another few weeks.
I am not sure that I will post anything before we go and pretty unlikely while we're away, so you may not have AC to kick around for awhile now.
