  Hi Chico
Mom has been knitting a hat that her daughter in law told her about that she is making too. Well mom looked at it today and about 4 rows down mom pearled where she should of knitted. She thought about leaving the mistake there and then decided she would rip it out to that part and try to put the stitches back on and it worked! Mom is not good at knitting but sat at the table and took her time and even got the right number of stitches back on the needles so she was pretty excited about that. I bet winter will be over before this project is done though LOL “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Nothing to do but complain about the weather! It was -24 this morning. Sunday thru Wednesday we will have a warm up in the 20's. Get out your flip flops and umbrella drink. Then Thursday, we will be back in the deep freeze again. I guess we broke some record about being under -20 for so many days in a row. This record I wasn't trying to break! For now, pass the hot chocolate!

Today was another cold one and with each cold day we keep hoping it’s the last! Mom decided it would be a good day to get my bean and rice mix made and put into packets and in the freezer. Once mom had all the pans out I had to go in my condo but I could watch out at mom and the cooking. I took a few naps and before I knew it she was done and I was allowed back out. We just hung out the rest of the day and now I am helping mom do my blogs. “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

This morning mom was cleaning in the back rooms and then later her and dad went somewhere. Mom came home pretty quick and said dad had to go down to the trail. Mom and I sat on the couch for a good while discussing things. Then she had to start supper so I had to go in my condo but now I am back out and helping mom with my blogs for tonight. “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  It's still too cold to go out and play
so the foodateers make a fort under the table by draping blankets over the chairs. They're going camping in the dining room ! Camping of course means food ! Marshmallows, tator salad, wings, watermelon, corn on the cob . . . beaks are watering already :)

The batch of suet mom made for the wild birds dad has used up down at the trail and he asked mom to get stuff to make another batch. When mom went to the store yesterday she got all the stuff and made it up so that should be enough for the rest of this winter for them. Mom has to make my bean and rice mix again soon since there isn’t much left in the freezer. She made my steel cut oats this morning so I am set there for a while with that too.. “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I come to you by generator tonight. A winter storm hit our area and trees and power lines are down. Even the Mackinac Bridge is closed due to no visibility. Yes, we are still very cold. I have extra blankets on the condo tonight. Time to sit back and enjoy cups of hot chocolate.

Well the cold weather is back but again I don’t think it ever left either. Last night broke a record for today and it was -20 here this morning. There were some school delays around this morning again and the grands had them too. Mom went for groceries and she wasn’t in a big hurry to leave early either. Guess she was waiting on the big warm up and that didn’t happen so finally she went and was back pretty quick too. Dad was home with me so I kept him company .“Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

WOW, it's warm enough for flip flops! We still have several feet of snow!
Yes, I love going on trips but, that one day was too long in the car. Mom & I both were worn out from 16 hours in the car!!!
Another winter weather advisory until Tuesday night! We are having more snow and cold ...temp is minus 18. Well, I had to stock up on my hot chocolate mix! This is getting so old ... where is the spring weather?

Glad your back on here now to get you to 10k.Oh I know all about our social lives getting put on hold when our mom's get busy week other stuff.
Life has been treating me good and I'm doing good except I can't seem to keep my beak out if trouble. I keep trying to chew on the wood in the kitchen but my parronts don't seem to like that.I don't see what the big deal is I'm just making things look better.
Are you staying warm from this cold winter we are having? I don't know about you but I'm ready for spring. Have a good night.

Last night I just wasn’t ready to go to bed for some reason. Mom has this little mouse thing that I don’t like at all and if I hit it off the end table it will start going all over the floor. Well I had it going and was yelling at it and then I tossed the dancing bunny down so they could play together and I sat up on my play gym and yelled at them both. Yep I sure was wound up but by the time I did go to bed I fell right to sleep. Guess it wore me out good! “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Good to hear from you. I've been voting daily except when I was on vacation with my parronts in FL. We didn't have the best internet there at the rental house. It's been so cold this winter without a break. We have been -25 to -39 at night. During the day, many days we couldn't get above -5. Another bad winter for us. But, FL was greyt!

Around 4 am mom and dad heard the carbon monoxide detector beep and then it did it again and they got up and started checking things. Mom peeked in on me and I looked back at her. Finally dad took the unit down in the garage and it went off again and then he took it outside and it went off again so dad knew something wasn’t right and everything was ok. Mom and him went back to bed to wait till daylight and catch a few more zzzz. Dad went to the hardware store and bought another one and found out that the old ones are only good for 5 years and the newer ones for 7 and didn’t realize that. The parronts were just happy everything was ok in the house and just a faulty unit! “Dear old man winter we have had enough!“ leaving you a vote ~~Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi

Last night our temperatures dropped to -16 here and that isn’t with the wind chill factor but real temperature. I sure am glad mom puts the extra blanket on me at night when its this cold and love my heater in my condo even more on these cold nights! Friday is usually my bath day in the winter time but mom said it was too cold to do it today. Its suppose to be warmer tomorrow so I might get one tomorrow. I like getting blow dried the best and could just forget the bath stuff. Its ok once I really get into it but in the winter mom doesn’t soak me much so doesn’t give me time to really get into it either. “Dear old man winter we have had enough!“ leaving you a vote ~~Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom said it was a chili day and it certainly was. Well in more ways then one that is cause mom made a big pot of Chili too for supper. One thing in the winter time soup or chili always hit’s the spot. I helped mom clean and wash clothes this morning. She lets me jump in the clean clothes after they come out of the dryer. I got a bit lost in the fitted sheet though but mom helped me out but boy was it a nice and cozy in there. “Dear old man winter we have had enough!“ leaving you a vote ~~Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Moms daughter in law wanted to learn how to crochet a few years ago so mom taught her the basics and she did really well. She would look on you tube when she wanted to learn something or got stuck on how to do a certain procedure. Now she is trying to knit a hat for her mom that is going through chemo and is doing a good job learning that as well. She made her mom a crocheted hat but thought the knitted one would be good for a change. Her mom will enjoy it cause its made with so much love from her daughter too. “Dear old man winter we have had enough!“ leaving you a vote ~~Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Yesterday the one grand didn’t have school because of Presidents day so skin sis and the grand came up to visit a bit. The grand was at the dentist to get a small cavity fixed and came up after that then. With school and softball mom hasn’t seen the grand for a good while and boy did she get tall! She is taller then mom now but they all are now except the youngest one and bet it wont be long he will tower over mom too. Mom used to think she was tall but now she is feeling other wise LOL. “Dear old man winter we have had enough!“ leaving you a vote ~~Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)
