    @Lisak1 it took such a long time but I'm thankful it finally came to be. I found my birth mother and half sister way back in the 70's when no internet or dna to buy. I found her going through a local phone book w/a name my adopted parents gave me. She could have been anywhere in the world. I went through every person w/her last name for days searching. Finally a guy said he might know something and he would get back to me. I didn't think he would but finally I got a call from his father saying they knew who I was and who my mother was. Turned out my mother was his adopted sister, yes my mother was adopted also. Then we met him and he told me he knew where my mother lived in California and he then told me I had a half sister and he knew where she was too. That was the best information I ever received! We live close to each other now and see each other often.

    We’ve got icy conditions. But just two hr drive from us, it’s 70. Not good. If it keeps that up, I’ll be singing with the Lollipop gang and petting the cowardly lion. I’m worried this freeze will kill my plants, and I may have killed one of my fish when I added water to the tank. That’s 4 I’ve lost recently.

    Cloudy skies and south of Seattle they are getting snow so why can't we get some more? Not to be greedy or anything but it's just so pretty.
    But look what it did to my poor tree. The tree was a real leaner tho so it was bound to happen w/a heavy wet snowfall. It's in a spot where if all of it falls it won't hurt anyone or anything so I'll see how it does.

    I think this is the coldest winter we have had since the 90's up here in Canada. It has been down below -30 and -40 Celsius overnight for weeks on end with next to no breaks, not like we usually have in previous winters when warm Chinook winds come and melt everything in sight. We did have a little break last week for a day or two then bank to deep freezer.... :(

    Icy rain today, porch is slick, boss told us stay home. So I cleaned the grow up tank, I’m down to 6 fish left. I think the water I added was from town instead of water we pulled from the pond, so I lost like 5. Now I’m working on the bathroom, it needed a deep clean to get off hard water and soap scum. Next is sweeping, mopping all the floors that aren’t carpet. I’ve got about 5 projects to get done if I can today. Ones done, ones in progress, letting the cleaner soak in to take off the buildups. I think I’ll be redoing the counter in there when I do the kitchens. I don’t like the fake stone on it. So it’ll be done differently. And I’ll be painting then too, redoing the tub, tile paint, etc. It will look very different when I’m done.

    Nearly 2" of rain over the last 24 hours. With the frozen ground, a lot of flooding is happening. Might try to head into the woods tomorrow to see how much the stream is flowing but the entrance to the trail often floods so I have a feeling I won't be able to get back there.

    Flooding here, too. But luckily we are situated on the highest point in the county (or so we've been told) so we never have issues with water. By tomorrow we're back down to freezing temps, so then we'll have ice! Oh, winter... you've overstayed your welcome!

    We broke all records for this day, 80 ! I was so happy to work outside, cleaning up plant beds, cutting back shrubs etc. :)

    I peeked under the pond cover and saw all 4 of my koi. I ran the hose for 15 minutes, to over flow the pond, as it doesn't get any rain with the cover on it.
