JusJoJan the 7th- “tempest”

My first week of the year has been a tempest week. I have the worse flu can someone have. I already missed two days of work. I’m tired of being in bed, not being able to eat, and my body feels like breaking into pieces.  I wasn’t expecting to be this sick.

Then we are experiencing winter storms and frigid temperatures. These past couple of days were the coldest with a temperature of -23 and with the windshield feeling like -41.  I went yesterday to the doctor’s office and it was a miserable ride. Icy roads, cold and windy you got the picture. A long drive. As soon I went back home, I put on my pajamas and went back to bed.

Have a great weekend and I’m out again.


This daily prompt it’s brought to us by Liz.  Thank you!

This past week we had a snow storm with almost ten inches of snow. My husband has been cleaning out the snow and we are already tired of this winter except for these two.

I personally am counting the days for the arrival of spring. I am eager to see my flowers bloom and be able to arrange my beautiful garden. Meanwhile these two continue playing in the snow, enjoying the last days of winter.

As my granddaughter says in a few months she will return to Phoenix, Arizona and there is no snow there. That’s why she takes advantage of every second to play outside in the snow. However, in my case I prefer to see the flowers, the sun, and to be sitting outside enjoying nature.

I wonder if that’s the reason why she wants us to move to the Prescott or Flagstaff area where she can enjoy a little snow.



















Daily Post: Wonder


This winter looks like it doesn’t have any intentions of ending.  They’re predicting more snow starting tonight until Tuesday morning. Adding another 10 inches to the 60 inches of snow in the ground would put us at risk for flooding. I know the city has been working hard to keep the roads clean and picking up the snow from some areas to dump in a field out of town. They’ve a lot of work to do. I’ll keep praying for the snow to slow down. I’m afraid of the flooding they already mention in the news.   We all need a break from this cold weather and the snow. I want to be able to go out without any worry about the road conditions.

The day after Christmas

It’s the day after Christmas we have plans to go the mall to take advantage of all the good deals. You know from 50-70% off the entire store, it can’t be missed. However, mother nature has more in store for the entire state of North Dakota. We got a Christmas winter storm and everything is closed.  No travel advised and if you get stuck in the snow you will get a ticket of $250. I’m glad they decide to make it an official. We have residents who doesn’t understand the risk of going out they not only they put their life’s in danger also others.

For today we will watch a couple of movies, of course when the girls wake up its 11:50am and still sleeping.  I also got for Christmas a new book so I’m ready for that, too. To everyone who is reading this post enjoy the day after Christmas because I will.  Also to my neighbors who are complaining about being inside just stop complaining you guys needs to move to Florida.

Storm again

Another winter storm here we go again.  I wake up early this morning, turn on the TV checking the local news if we have any school.  No cancelation in our district at all. I began to get ready for work and I can hear the wind blowing. I saw my car covered completely in snow again, the winds were 35 MPH and it was feeling like -15.  My husband drove me in his 4×4 truck. The road condition was bad a 3 minutes’ ride turn into some 15 minutes. We made it and walking to the school door was a challenge.

I’m the second person who gets to the school, the custodian is the first one to arrive and usually he’s on the other side of the building.  This morning was no signs of him, not even his storeroom was open. I thought he may be outside trying to shovel the door areas. I clock in 5 minutes earlier at 5:55am, turn the oven on, and turn on the computer to check my school email. The first message was from the school district “NO SCHOOL” on Tuesday, December 6th. Really, you send a message at 6:20am when I work at 6:00am. Do you know how many people start before 6:20am? I was upset, what a way to start my day. I’ve to call my husband and 15 minutes later we were back on the road. They were getting worse and the winds were making impossible the visibility.

We made it and I’m home safe with a cup of coffee in my hand.  My husband has to work, he fixed small engines and since last week he has been fixing 8-10 snow blowers daily. For the rest of my day, I would put up my Christmas tree, make some soup, lot of napping in between chores, and I hope this storm goes away. An update on the custodian, his vehicle was stuck on the road and he went back to his home.






Every weekend I do my groceries, laundry, and clean the house. As soon I finished, I would check my emails, check my Facebook, I blog for a little bit, and I go to my Pinterest page. I also like to play a few games with the girls and at the end of the day I would watch a movie. Last week I watched “Cop Land” with Sylvester Stallone and a few oldies like “Execute Decision” and “Die Hard” (I like all of them). Before I went to bed, I started to read “Land of Stories” it took me two days to finish the first book. This is a children’s book that my granddaughter wants me to read so I decide to please her. By the way, is a very good book and I highly recommended it. I’m ready for book number two.


This weekend pretty much the same the only difference is the weather is too cold (-6 feels like -12) I’m going to stay inside hibernating with my glass of Moscatto and ready to watch “The Last Castle” with Robert Redford. My husband would be cooking like every weekend. My stack of books is waiting, too.





Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.


Ripped Into the Headline


Let me check what’s in the news.   I don’t  read the paper and  I don’t sit and watch the news, however I just like to know  what’s going on with the weather. Then again,  let  me check  what’s happening in North Dakota.


“The North Dakota Department of Transportation and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have issued a Travel Alert for eastern North Dakota due to snow and blowing snow creating reduced visibility. Areas included in the Travel Alert are the cities of Fargo, Grand Forks, Devils Lake, Valley City, Jamestown and surrounding areas.”

So right now is cold, snowing and windy also it will get colder by the end of the weekend. My plans would be cuddling on my couch with a cup of coffee, read some of my favorite blogs, start reading a new book, and relax. For now I’m heading to bed, I still have one more day of work.
