Snowbound Day 4

The title is a bit dramatic truly, as I could leave at any time. The husband and daughter have been out and about on a number of occasions, but I have no reason nor desire to slog about in 14 inches of cold white stuff. Erin and family came for dinner, which was tasty going down, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits. I spent a week's worth of carb points on that meal. And, I made a cream cheese cranberry cake which was a hit. I, not unexpectedly, later paid for the food ecstasy with what I think I'll term "unhappy digestion" and spare everyone the gory details. But, all better this morning and trying to decide what to do.

I finished a sketch of granddaughter, Lainey and am not displeased with the result. I've done a load of towels that begs to be folded. Kitchen floor is swept, bone broth simmering on stove and husband just brought me his extra laptop to play with. Reading is a constant temptation as I am 2/3 complete with
"The Goldfinch" (enjoying it) and an equal way through the book about the Hmong people and their terrible awful experiences. Reading this book makes me even more sympathetic to all the refugees in this world. And, I know a great deal more about Southeast Asia than before. Knitting is out because the finger I cut is still sore. Designed a bracelet holder and am hoping husband can bring it into being in his woodshop. He built me a lovely efficient hold for earrings and necklaces. Fingers crossed.

On Wednesday, the weather guys say it will be above freezing, don't think one sunny day will melt this snow much. And the weekend is purported to bring a fresh layer of the white stuff. Still got plenty of food, pellets for the stove and power. Still cozy.

Thinking it wouldn't be bad to be a bear. Hibernation seems a decent option in weather like this.

Bone Broth! We just froze six quarts of the stuff, it's a first for me but realizing the benefit, and savings, we picked up lamb and beef bones including hoofs. Planning on some soup later this week.

I've been making bone broth for the last few years. Is a comfort to my super sensitive digestive track. No source for hoofs, though. They should make it really gel up well. En JOY!

my brother had the same complaints
for years,
f it was the gravy and fried chicken
you might want to check you gall bladder?

Pretty sure gallbladder is involved, but I'd have to be out cold before you could get me to see a doctor.

Ive often had this very thought. Right now,in fact.

Your sketch is lovely :)

Laundry never ends does it... Did three huge loads myself on Monday.

I just found a book that I'm hoping our local library has.

The name of it is:
The Widows by Jess Montgomery
Here's an excerpt of this book:
Apparently it's based on a bit of real American history.

Book looks good, let me know how it goes if you find it. I like stories based on truth.

I think I'd want to hibernate, too, if I were you!

Bone broth sounds yummy. Sorry you've got digestive troubles, too.

I, too, am reading a refugee book: No Friend But The Mountains by Behrouz Boochani. Not bedtime reading, really!

You and your husband are a good pair. One thinks up an invention, the other brings it to fruition! (Hopefully.)

Might get out today, might not lol

I tell ya, reading about the Hmong refugees makes me very grateful for what I have, definitely not a bedtime read. Where does your book take place.?

Not much the husband and I do together, but sometimes we can complete a project.

Manus Island. I think he is from Iran but we only pick up the (true) story in Indonesia.

"...I'd have to be out cold before you could get me to see a doctor." OMG, think I hurt myself laughing at this one. Which is probably not a good thing because I totally agree...

What can I say lol ...
