I finally have my voice back...

its been a long 5 days of this stuff...
but I finally feel better...

I had almost lost my voice completely last week...
then I sounded like a budweiser frog...

Doug is good and Craig is improving...

DH came home hacking and coughing and his voice was toast last night...

everything here is on stand by...
waiting for all of us to be good to go...

I am able to keep up the basics and keep us fed...
made potato soup today...

we haven't had that forever...
and it would be nice on a cool day...

but we are back in the 70s and have the air on...

we had some thick as pea soup fog last night and this morning...
and I heard the most awful commotion going on right behind us, just about the time Craig was due home...
a pack of coyotes had someone's smaller dog...
and it took them a long time to kill it...
and I will never forget the sound....
ever...
and there was nothing we could do with the fog that dense...
no way of getting a clear shot...
or seeing one come at you from no where...
we had to just listen to it...

I ran out and got Craig as soon as he pulled up...
told him to leave everything and head for the door...
its just insane at how they are coming into town more and more here...
town critters are easy kills...
neighbors leave feed out for them...
one of these days, its going to be a person screaming for help...
and until then, nothing will be done about it...
;(

other than that, life is going on as usual around here...
laundry, dishes and mopping...
(I use a steamer, so its not that bad)
been doing my nappin', too...

Tete, So glad you are better. You are right some times when we are sick...it's just about all we can do to feed our family. When I go to get the paper in the mornings and it's dark out...I make all kinds of racket to scare the coyotes away...just in case they are hanging around the mailbox. LOL. They have pretty much cleaned out the cats around this area. The neighbor lady used to have 10 barn cats, now has none. The fellow down the road had just as many if not more. I have only seen three down there. Take care , I hope all of you get well soon. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Hi Tete, glad you are feeling better. Soup sounds like just the right meal. We have coyotes here too and it is scary when they come near the homes looking for food through the night and early mornings. I feel so bad to think someone has lots their little pooch in such a terrible way and that you had to hear it and be helpless to help in the fog.
Prayers for you and get well wishes.
