GROUNDHOG DAY


This is the day that poor Punxsutawney Phil is pulled from his burrow to tell us if he sees his shadow.  I always feel sorry for the poor little fellow.


Punxsy Phil did see his shadow since it was a bright sunny day today and so we are to have six more weeks of winter.  I figured out years ago that it is six weeks until Spring so whether he sees the shadow or not we have six more weeks of winter.

Neither Joe nor I have been feeling too well this week.  But today we felt better so we decided to go to East Coast Wings and Grill for lunch.  We both needed to get out of the house.  We haven't been anywhere since Sunday when we came home from church.

Joe got a burger and sweet potato fries.  I got lemon pepper wings and homemade chips.  Everything was good, as usual.





We came home and went back to bed.  I am getting nothing done this week.  And there's so much to do.

I have discovered a new youtube channel called "allthemed docs".  It is a lot of BBC 4 documentaries and is so good.  I find myself watching more of that than I do TV.  And I am learning so much!  Most of them are done by Dr. Lucy Worsley a historian from Hampton Court.  If you like history, you should definitely check this out.

It's almost midnight and I have to get going.  Until later...

  1. I also feel sorry for Phil the groundhog. To be yanked out of your warm,cozy burrow...really rude.
    Sorry to hear that you & Joe are not feeling well. Glad you both got out to eat. Prayers that you both feel better soon.

    1. I live in a lovely place where there isn't a lot of winter, but just enough. Hopefully it's six weeks until your weather gets warmer.

  4. We here in Florida don't worry about Phil and his shadow. LOL We do enjoy a lot of the British shows on Acorn TV so I will have to check out the app you mentioned. Happy February! Hope you two are feeling better soon!

    1. I love little Punxsy Phil but I always feel sorry for him. Poor little thing sleeping away and then pulled out into the sun and all the flashing cameras.
