My mother was in the hospital at the end of last week.  Fortunately, she is home now and recovering. The family pulled together, and we kept her company, spoke to doctors, and settled her back home again.  I am so lucky to have The Hubby, who covered for me with both sets of cats while I spent time away from home, plus he packed my lunch box full of food so I would have sustenance.  My siblings were in constant contact via texting and phone calls, and we shared equally in getting things done.

In the meantime, our part of Michigan received several inches of snow on Friday through Saturday, then bitter cold swept in behind it.

I promise to visit everyone in blogland as the day wears on.  It is frigid outside today, so I am happy to stay inside to do computer work!

Wow, you had a quite a week! Glad your mom is ok. How long does the water stay unfrozen in the cooler like that? I may "steal" that idea for "our" feral, Blackie.

We are glad you Gmom is home and hope she is making steady progress to feeling better.
OMCs that is a lot of snow. We rarely get it here and when we do just a few inches. More often we get sleet or freezing rain.
Very cold today for Dixie only 36
Hugs madi and mom
